City Made t'; of Nationalities from
Almost Every Part of the World.
People talk about the value of foreign
travel in broaden ng the mind nnd correct
ing that tone of provincialism which used
to be more common in this country than it
is now. What they say is all very true;
but no tine seems to realize that right here
in New York a man may travel among
many foreign peoples, and by so doing
may acquire th.it cosmopolitan outlook
which should distinguish the modern man
of the world. TLere are, for instance, cer
tain localities in t he east side which are as
Hebrew as any modern community can be.
Hebrew pairs a exposed for sale on the
newsstands. He rew shops with Hebrew
sifrns abound. Hebrew restaurants an
nounce the prictsfor coffee and cakes or
what not iu the most approved modern
A Hebrew playhouse presents Hebrew
dramas iii the Hebrew tongue. Kvery
where aronnd you are the evidences of
Semitic life, and is you behold the strange
manners nnd ctotmus of these people, in
noresjiect modified by American civiliza
tion, it is hard to believe that you are in
New York at all and not in some foreign
-ghetto." which, maybe, you will spend a
good deal of time and money some day to
The same thin ' is largely true of many
other nationalities anil races to be found
in New York, al out which the self suffi
cient New York provincial is frankly and
contemptuously ignorant. There are, in
deed, frequent general references to these
alien peoples as being iu some way a "men
ace" to our civilization. Their shortcom
ings, esMfially the fact that they do not
at once become Anglo-Saxon Americans,
are often dwelt on by eloquent preachers
Hut while Xev Yorkers are quick to dis
cern the duty of the alien to New York,
they do not alwiiys realize the duty of the
New Yorker to the alien within his gates.
They take Oo pi ins to get into sympathy
with him. to understand his point of view
or to help him to a truer appreciation of
his duly and obligation. Doubtless he is
at fault in segregat ing himself in an alien
colony and in perpetuating the traditions
and prejudices of his native land.
But, on the c ther hand. New Yorkers
are also at fault when they help to con
tinue this suite of alTairs by keeping aloof
from the foreigner, by refusing to learn
anything about him and by making no
effort to brir-j him into right rei.itions
with our civic life, Most of us fail to real
ize that New Yi rk today is not a snug lit
tle community of Knglish and Dutch peo
ple, homogeneous in thought and habit,
but a great pol; glot metropolis, in which
no element of haracter and no strain of
blood, however humble, can be safely ig
nored. New Yorkers arc justly proud of the in
telligeut interest, tbey take in every corner
of the globe where men live and think and
act. Is it tint 1 igh time for them to pay
some atteiilii.u to tin ir own city, of whose
present condition and fut tire dost iuy many

C'iTnnolssiurs in lVrfrciiie.
Tlie learneil in scents claim that they can
distinguish and name each element of any
compound odor, just as the musician can
discriminate aiid trace the sound of the
various instruments that are rendering
the crowded symphony. Doubtless these
learned ones could distinguish, on coming
into a lady's drawing room, all the various
breaths imprisoned iu the pot pourri jar
the rose leaves, the cassia buds, the orange
flowers, the orr.s root, the vanilla, the bcu
zoni and cinnamon nnd musk and alcohol,
and all the inui nierable rest. IJut to the
Ignorant in sue i fine points the pleasure is
perhaps just as keen, let the learned deny
it as they may. Yet many think them
selves accompl shed in t Ids branch whose
education is sti.I very far from finished.
We remenilie-. at the time of a famous
oriental exhibition in this count rv, when
people were possessed with the delights of
the attar of rof-r-s to lie brought there, that
the oriental stock of attar ran out, and it
was replenit.hei from a Yankee dealer's
stock of oil of geranium, and the sale con
tinued just as before, entirely undimin
ished, and with warm adulation of the
strange, rich sv.-eetnessof the real Turkish
and Persian attar of roses. And although
the oil of gerai ium is undoubtedly a rich
perfume, yet uhe crafty orientals must
have laughed in their loose sleeves at the
way iu which i , took the place of the once
far richer anil ii lore delicate, and four times
more costly cdij-jct of the bulbul's worship.
"Will men never learn to keep their
hands out of t Ii ei r pockets and t heir elliows
down while v alking along a crowded
street or when in a street car?" wailed a
frail little won an to her companion as the
two fairly fought their way along Wabash
avenue, near Madison street, the other day.
"Some of the digs that I've received today
from men's cIIkiws have been simply ter
rific! Weougl t to begin acrusudeagainst
the habit. Tl e man of medium height
swinging along with his hands in Ids
pockets and his elbws akimbo does more
positive dama;;e to women when he digs
his vIIhiws into them at about every live
steps than all I he corsets in the country.
"I declare f ir it if I had a what is it
they call it 'j ullj' with the city council
I'd have an ordinance passed making it a
crime for tneii to go along the streets or
ride on street tars with their elbows stick
ing out. Many of our best aud so calli-d
'gentlemen' e -sist iu the habit. I've seen
women find themselves black and blue
when they got home, and all by reason of
the masculi.it elbow nuisance. It's a
shame sure aud positive." Chicago Trib
une. Where Sponges Come From.
Sponges are found in all parts of the
world. Three hundred different species
are known to naturalists, some of which
are found even on oor own coasts. The
number of these which have a commercial
value is, howe - er, limited. The sponges of
Syria and the Archijudago are the best,
aud are used for the toilet aud for delicate
operationii in art and industry. The spe
cies found ia the Bahama islands are of
very inferior t uality, but their moderate
price has led to their extensive use. The
Tunis sponge, which is extremely durable,
is also very b-ful. as it is adapted for very
rough purposes. These practically com
prise the Use. 1.1 sponges, though available
species are :. so found on the coasts of

I'oisoo of the Scorpion.
It is said to lie a remarkable fact that the
poison of the rcorpion gradually loses its
effect upon a I uman being, and that man
suffers less and less each time he is stung.
Due bold philisopher, it is related, had the
courage to follow out this principle to the
farthest exteiv , and made scorpions sting
