It will be claimed that the increased

New York World: If, as is alleged,
the Italians sUughtered by the New Or
leans mob wer-j naturalized citizens of
the United States, Mr. Blaine has made a
mistake of which he will hear the last
only when the last is heard of him .
What business has the government, of
King Humbert with the domestic hff-urs
of the United States, or the state of Lou
isiana or the personal affairs of their
people? It owes no protection and can
ask no indemnity. Mr. Blaine might
have informed the Italian authorities,
had he waited lo ascertain the fac's, that
he was Dot aware that any Italian sub
ject had suffered; that if any had. the
laws of Louisiana made ample provision
for the rclress of such injuries, whether
inflicted upon sojourn r or citizen; that
its municipalities are responsible in pe
cuniary damages for losse3 inflicted by
mobs which they did not stek to rep-1
Taking it for gran'ed. as Mr. B'uine
did, that the victims wrc Italian sub
jects, lawfully sojourLiog here, and en
titled, in the last extremity, to the pro
tection of their sovereign, he miyut have
cited a very striking and importint pre
cedent alining under his own previous
administration of the state department.
Had he but pointed to bis complete and
uncomr laining surrender of the Irish
American suspects to the tender mercies
of "British justice," at a time when
British justice had deliberately wit -drawn
every safe-guard of personal lib
erty in Ireland, he might have contrived
a perfect refuge in his own dere
liction. If he let Americans rot
in Irish jails; if lie calmly advised them
that within English jurisdiction they
must take the chances not only of Eng
lish laws but of the arbitrary suspension
of English laws, what tdaim for repara
tion could Italy have for a parcel of ad
venturers of whom nothing is positively
known except that they were charged
with conspiring to assassinate, and had
apparently escaped justice by the bribery
or intimidation of the jury? v
Mr. Blaine's prematurenees was a
blander and something worse.
THACKERAY AT II0ME
XCCOUNT 3Y HIS DAUGHTER OF
A RECEPTION TO AN. AUTHOR.
It Was a Terribly Inll Affair, and the
Host i:HCpe,l to His Club X Pen lor
trttit of Charlotte ltronte She Was Not
Noted as a Conversationalist.
One of the most notable pernors who
ever came itito our old bow wiuiiirv draw
ing room in Young street is a guest never
to be forgotten by me, iv tiny, delicate, lit
tle person, whose small band nevertheless
trasped a mighty lever which set all the
literary world of that day vibrating. I can
still nee the scene quite plainly: the hot
summer evening, the oien windows, the
carriage driving to the door as'we all sat
silent and expectant; my father, who rare
ly waited, waiting with us; our governess
nd my sister and I all in a row, and pre
lared for the great event.
We saw the carriage stop, and out of it
sprang the active, well kuit figure of Mr.
George Smith, who was bringing Mis
Bronte to see our father. My father, who
bad been walking up and down the room,
;oes out into the hall to meet his guests,
and then after a moment's delay the door
opens w ide, and the two gentlemen come
!u, leading a tiny, delicate, serious little
lady, pale, with fair, straight hair and
steady eyes. She may be a little over thir
ty; she ts dressed in a little barege dress
with a pattern of faint green mossT
She enters in mittens, in silence, in se
riousness; our hearts are beating with
wild excitement. This, then, is the author
?ss, the unknown power whose books have,
set all London talking, reading, speculat
ing: some people even say our father wrotvi
the books the wonderful books.
To say that we little girls had been siveti
Mana Eyre" to read scarcely iv;.iom
the facts of she case, to say that we ha 1
taken it without leave, read bits lure and
read bits there, Itcea carried away by an
undreamed of and hitherto unimagined
whirlwind into things, times, places, all
utterly absorbing and at the same time al
iolutely unintelligible to us, would more
accurately descrilie our states of mind ou
that summer's evening as we look at Jane
Eyre the great Jane Eyre the tiny little
The moment is so breathless that dinner
comes as a relief to the solemnity of the
Dccasion, and we all smile as my father
stoops to offer his arm, for, genius though
she may be, Miss Uroute can barely reach
his elbow. My own personal impressions
are that she is somewhat grave and stern,
specially to forward little girls who wisli
:o chatter. Mr. George Smith has since told
me how she afterward remarked upon my
father's wonderful forbearance and gentle
ness with our uncalled for incursions into
;he conversation. She sat gazing at him
with kindling eyes of interest, lighting up
irith a sort of illumination every now and
ihen as she answered him. 1 can see her,
ending forward over the table, not eating,
but listening to what lie said as he carve-!
the dish lcfore him.
I think it must have been on this very
"cca-Mon that my father invited some of
Ids friends in the evening to meet Miss
Bronte for everybody was interested and
iuxious to see her. Mrs. Crowe, t he reciter
rf ghost stories, was there. Mrs. Brook
iield, Mrs. Carlyle, Mr. Carlyle himself was
there, so 1 am told, railing at the appear
ance of cockneys upon Scotch mountain
sides; there were also too mauy Americans
for his taste, "but the Americans were as
God compared to the cockneys.'" says the
philosopher. Besides the Carlyles there
were Mrs. Elliott and Miss 1'erry. Mrs.
Procter and her daughter, most of my
father's habitual friends and companions.
In the recent life of Lord nought. :i I was
amused to see a note quoted i:i which Lord
Houghton was also convened. Would that
he had been present! perhaps the party
would have gone off better. It was a
ploomy and a silent evening.
Every one waited lor the biiiliant con
versation which never began at all. Mi.-s.
Bronte retired to the sofa in the study, and
murmured a low word now and then to
our kind crovernness, Miss Truelock. The
room looked very dark, the lamp began io
smoke a little, the conversation grew dim
mer and more dim, the ladies sat around
still expectant, my father was too much
perturlH'd by the gloom and the silence to
be able to cope with it at all.
Mrs. Brookfleld, who was in the doorway
by the study, near tbe corner in which Miss
Bronte was sitting, leaned forward with a
little commonplace, since brilliance was
not to be the order of t he evening. "Do
you like London, Miss Bronte?" she said;
another silence, a pause, then Miss Bronte
answers "Yes" and "Xo" very gravely,
and there the conversation drops.'
My sister and I were much too young to
lie bored in those days; alarmed, impressed
we might be, but not yet bored. A party
was a party, a lioness was a lioness; and
shall 1 confess it? at that time an extra
dish of biscuits was enough to mark the
rvening. Wo felt all the importance of
the occasion; tea spread in the dining
room, ladies in the drawing room; we
roamed about inconveniently, no do-ibt,
and excitedly, and in one of my excursion!
crossing the hall 1 was surprised to s my
father opening the front do:r with 1 is hat
on. He put bis fingers to his lips, walked
aut into the darkness, and shut the door
uietiy behind him. When I went back
to the chaw ing room again t he ladies asked,
me where he was. I vaguely answered that
I thought Le was coming back.
I was puzzled at. the time, nor was it ali
made clear to me till long years afterward.
.-. hen one day Mrs. Proctor asked me if 1
knew what had happened once when my
father had invited a party to meet Jane
Eyre at his house. It was one of the dull
rst evenings she had ever spent in her life,
She said. And then, with a good deal of
humor, she desr i-ilwd the situation, the la
flies who all come expecting so much de
lightful conversation, and the gloom and
the constraint, and how finally, over
whelmed by the situation, my father had
quietly left the room, left the house and
gone off to his club.
The ladies waited, wondered, and finally
departed also; and as we were going up to
bed with our caudles after everybody was
pone, I remember two pretty Miss Ls, in
shiny silk dresses, arriving, full of expec
tation. We still said we thought our
father would soon be back, but the Miss
L.'o declined to wait upon the chance,
laughed and drove away again almost im
mediately. Since writing tho preceding lines I have
visited Jane Eyre-land, and stayed in the
delightful homo where- she used to stay
with Mrs. Gaskeil. I have seen signs and
tokens of her presence, faiut sketches van
ishing away, the delicate writing in the
beautiful book she gave that warm friend;
and 1 havo also looked for and reread
the introduction to "Emma," that "last
Sketch" end most touching chapter in the
never-tc-be-wxitten book of Charlotte
Bronte's Lappy married life. The paper is
signed "W. M. T." It was written by the
editor, end is printed in one of the very
earliest numbers of The Corn hi 11 Maga

in their li res know nothing of the hard-1 ters. Xow these young fellows had a nroner
ships a poor hired girl has to endure on a
winter wash day. When the clothes at
last are dry, it is as hard to get them down
as it was t ) hang them up; they are frozen
to the line, and each piece the girl is afraid
of tearing. Washing is a day dreaded from
one week to another as long as it is cold
Now I will tell you how we do. Sticks
are fastened to I he ceiling of the cellar; in
them are b:tred holes through which the
lines are stretched pretty close together.
The washing I do on Saturday; this gives
the clothes all the time until Monday
morning iii which to dry. The clothes do
not freeze nor tear, and just think how
much easier it is for me. Wash day is no
longer dre! ded, no matter what the weath
er is. Of course it is necessary to do each
day's special work one day sooner than
usual, but -t gives a day of rest between
two days of hard work, and it is such a

ricnty of sleep.
It is ail veiy well to commend getting up
early in the morning. It would bedifficult
to exaggerate cither the pleasure or the
advantages a tTorded by early rising. But
to rise early one must retire early.

The I.if Line in Onr's Hand.
There are t iree prominent lines in the
palm the lino of life, that of the bead and
the heart line.
The line of 1: fe begins on the inner bound
ary of the paliii, about midway between the
thumb and th : forefinger. If we imagine
the left hand to be a map, with the fingers
pointing nort h, this line runs toward the
southeast, the l curves toward the south,
and in some Lands curves finally toward
the southwest. It thus skirts the base or
"uprise" of tl e thumb, known as the up
rise of Venus. If it is deep, broad, of good
color and extends nearly or quite to tho
wrist, and if the rest of the hand indicates
vitality and cheerfulness, the subject may
be expected t live to a green old age; Le

It was owing to a want of this kind of
instruction that a certain emlwrrassing in
cident occurred during a wedding in Kan
sas City not long ago. A New York man
a cousin of the bride had telegraphed to
a certain florist in Kansas City to send a
box of flowers to the house on the morning
of the wedding. Now it hapjened that
the thrifty merchant also combined tho
business of t he undertaker wit h t hat of t ho
florist, and when the flowers reached th-j
bride they came in a box, laltcllcd on the
outside "One Female Shroud." Of course
the bride had hysterics; tiny self-respect ing

thought it was a dreadful omen, instead of
its leing simply a dreadful blunder. New

The story of a Trade Mark.
The curious device which appears as a

been familiar to the reading public. Placed
upon the title pagesof the works of some of
our more distinctly popular writers, it has
lx'come known to a wide circle of readers,
and I have ofteu heard expressed inUirest
as to its origin and significance. It has a
rather curious story. It appeared first upon
the title page of a Persian poem by Mr.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich entitled "The
Course of True Love Never Bid Kuu
Smooth," which was one of the earliest
publications of Mr. Carleton. It was found
by Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Carleton on one
occasion when they were looking through
the illustrated edition of Lane's "Arabian
Nights" for appropriate emblems and de
vices to decorate Mr. AhUicI "s look. It
is the Arabic for "looks." and, recognizing
its appropriateness for a trade mark, Mr.
Carleton adopted it forthwith, and used il
upon all his publications thereafter. E 1
