Reading carefully tile biography of
Columlms wo find that no one in his age
or gi-neratjon could have been better
Jittcd for the mighty job of opening up
and lnvmiing h western world than
Christopher Columbus, for he is said to
have been one of the brightest young
liars of hi time. Columbus took pre
varication in its infancy, it is said, and
pnt it oa its feet and made an industry
of it. '"lie hail a talent of deceit," says
Ins biographer, "and sometimes boasted
of it. or at least counted it a merit."

hsahella, it has been said, pawned "her
Jewels that Columbus might go to the
and find a new world. Tho his
'"nan says she did not do that. -So in
'he wonian e ilepartnieiit of the great ex-
position 4ibella should not be per
mitted to hold the place which by rights
Queen Victoria should hold. Victoria
is very deferent : from Isabella. She is
tipright as a monarch, and has never
once stepped aside from the path of
duty in order to gr tify her own selfish
wishes. She has put in her little old eight
hours per day reigning just the same as
she would if God 1 ad told her to stand
behind a counter and rap on the show
case and call "cash" for the same num
ber of years.
So the historian says that Queen Isa
bella, hoping for njw realms to govern
and for several nev.r sealskin sacques on
the return of Colm lbus, bade him god
speed and made him sign a cast iron
contract to turn ov?r all his discoveries :
to her and Fcrdintnd. Then, believing '
that the great traveler would strike Asia,
they gave him a letter of introduction
to the khan of Tart ary instead of a letter
to Sitting Bull, as they should havedouo, '
and he set out. j
Ho was to be commodore of Long '
Island sound if h ; succeeded, and gov
ernor general of Constable's Hook. Ho
was, by contract, permitted to retain
iie-tenth of all gold, silver, pearls,
precious stones ant. pelts found on tho
voyage after the costs had been de
ducted. The biographer of Columbus tells us
that the story alwiit Isabella having
pawned her jewels to fit out Columbus
on his trip will not do at all. She and
Ferdie just simply cast an anchor to
windward, hoping to get a controlling
interest in the Standard Oil company be
fore anybody else did so.
And so the story gradually comes down
to the spinal column of lust for gold, not 1
only on tho part of his royal backers, but
even Columbus and his crew wre out !
for the dust and that alone. What a'
commonplace tale after our schoolboy
wonder and adrui -ation. Wherever Co-;
lumbus landed h i asked if gold existed j
there. ' If not. he issessed tho natives so;
much' Cotton per Y ead. When there was
gold, it was a hawk's bill of this metal
per man and a calabash of gold pet
chief. The rotun lity of the earth did
not worry him to much as his own
Finally Columbns got to lying again.
He gave offices to his relatives, not only
to his wife's family, buUat last he got
reckless and began to hand out offices to
his numerous children. - It was then
time to call a ht.lt, as the local Genoa
papers so truly sa d, and when he offered
to open up a sla--e trado between Spain
and the Bahamas people lost faith in him.
It is pretty well settled that Columbus
drew the prize for first seeing land,
when as a matter of fact cue of his men
was first to see it. and that he put the
money into a watch with a peach stone
charm on the chain.
Columbus had been dead 230 years be
fore he learned that his discovery was
not a part of Asia. We can imagine
him now, as ho rode along the Jersey
coast, inquiring for tho Ah Khooud of
Swatt. to whom ho had a letter from
Ferdiuand. I can see him now at the
Potter building or tho Mills buildin-'
asking for the k lan of Tartary. or try
ing to rind his telephone number on a
pink pamphlet at the ferry.
Vet we might as well give to Colum
bus the glory cf this great discovery,
whether he did i accidentally or from a
mercenary point of view purely. We
will let that go.
The time is rij e for celebration. Let
us celebrate. When Columbns camo

The application of electricity had not
been dreamed of, and the pink tea was

made even in one century, and in 400
years tho change has been most marvel
ous. The use of ensilage at the time of
tho discovery of America was yet in its
infancy. Lots t f people did not know
what it was. It is so even now.

A New I'so. for Ol.l riarcnsi.
There came into my possession many
years ago a very old fashioned upright,
piano. We found a place for it in my
slimy, more Tonne beauty and quaintness
of the case which was of rosewood and of
the usual excellent workmanship than
from any hope of deriving comfort from
any sweet music the yellow ivories might
produce, it was old, and its time and
power for discoursing sweet music were
past nnd gone; t ry as we would, bv a new
string here and another there, it refused to
send out any but shrill nnd discordant
notes, and in despair we locked it up. And
so it might have stood for many years to
come, plea .ant to look upon, but utterly
useless, hail it not been that a good many
books were scattered about the house and
demanded a case.
While trying to reconcile ourselves to
parting with tlie piano to make room for
tho bookcase, the thought struck us,
"Surely this would i.mke a splendid book
case if its inside coiil.l be bodily taken out
without injury to the frame." We sent
for a workman, who saw the possibility of
doing this lor us .t a moderate sum, nnd
the result is that we have a beaut if ul piece
ot lurmture and bookcase combined. Ti.e
upper part, consisting of about two-thirds
of the heigot, contains throe shelves for
books and a writing desk the former key
board run.iing the whole depth and width
of the piano, while lhe under third forms a
famous cupboard for manuscripts and
magazines. Onls' Own Paper.

In llussia it is a common mode of expres
sion to say "as happy as a priest's wife."
The reason she is no happy is because her
hnsbaihl's position depends upon her. If
she dies he is deposed, and his property is
tnkeu away from him and distributed, half
to his children aud half to the government.
The dreadful contingency makes the Rus-
Kian priest careful to get a healthy wife, if
he can, and makes him take extruordiua-
rily good care of her after he has secured
