A story it tolrl illuHtrating the rigid dis
cipline of he Russian army. One of th
grand duke s told the czar that a sentinel
at the railriad crossing at Peteruof refused
to raise the gate for his carriage, although
the train w as not due for three or four
minutes. ' It is against orders, your im
perial highness," the soldier replied, the
rule being that when the gate was shut it
must not lij opeucd until after the train
had passed. The czar s;iid he was glad to
hear that tl e soldier knew how to obey or
ders. The grand duke laughed and said
he was certain that if the czar himself had
been prcscn discipline would have given
way. The ?zar did not reply, but a few
days after, to put the matter to the test,
he drove up with the czarina just after the
gate had lie n lowered. The czar called to
the sentinel to let him pass. The sentinel,
in great tr -pidation, saluted, but did not
move the gate.
"Open th; gate, I tell you," cried the
emperor; "i on't you know who I am?"
"Yes. your imperial majesty, but it's
against onK'i-s, and 1 cannot open the
gate' answered the sentinel, still salut
ing and tun ing almost blue with anxiety,
but not mo lag an inch from his place. "I
am the czar and I command yott to open,"
tried the ct r again. "I can't do it, your
imperial ni! jesty," despairingly cried the
sentinel, still standing firm. .lust then the
train paasa . The cz::r burst into laugh
ter, and warmly con: mending the aston
ished sentry presented bin with a twenty
live ruble note and drove back to the
palace. Xe v York Sun.

Country People to the front in Cities.
The conflict between city people and
those who five in the country is as old as
history. Th re always has been an influx
from wit lion to within. So lonif as the
area of cities was limited, this was strong
ly and succc.-sfi-.lly resisted by the citizens.
They felt t! emselres a superior class Vc
the rustics. The very words "urban" and
"rustic" tell the stoiy.
The Romans called the outside dwellers
"villain;" fr :n which come two words,
one of honorable significance, "villa," and
the other, perhaps a little modified by
mediaeval e. "villain." Roman citizens
looked down up..:! the country folk as an
average New Yorker dins upon a stray
Jet ae jinan from the pines.
All literat ire has been tinged by this
feeling, and both writers and statesmen
have continued to deplore the excessive
growth of (ities as a national evil, and
have cxhortc 1 countrymen tostay at home,
tellinc them how much better off they
were in the country.
Observation has now taught us that this
growth of dries is a necessary part of the
evolution of our social structure, and that
it is not a growth at the expense of the
country, but lor the benefit of the country,
as well as that of the city. T. C. Clark in
French rublic schools.
Germany will have to look to her laurel:
respecting her position as the foremost
country in the line of popular education.
France has taken a viarorous start to over
take Germany, and made such great prog
ress in the education of her people that she
is now only a little behind her great rival.
Twenty-five years ago not 50 per cent, oi

Alexander's Miserable Bad.
At a period when most men who succeed
are just beninning to mount the lirst step
ping stone of success Alexander tbe Great
was at the summit of his power. With a
trained force of less than 40,(Hi0 men he
overran all of what was then considered
the civilized part of Asia, ami also Egypt.
He overthrew army after army immeasur
ably ids superior in numbers so swiftly
that tbe world was daxxled by the rapidity,
scope and magnitude of his achievements.
He was looked upon as a sort of demigod.
And yet even he was sighing because there
were no more worlds to conquer. He per
ished miserably altera prolonged debauch.
His mighty empire melted like a mist
under the influence of the rising sun and
his life work went apparently for nothing.
A llos,. as a Telephone Line,
A couple of bright young men of Cincin

engine company may be able to telegraph
from the nozzle end of a line of hose to the
engineer. By a code of signals given on a
small electric bell the pipemen can notify
the engineer when to start the stream and
when to dose dou n. In like manner a dis

What i Bajd Digestion Does,
A doctor hi s been comparing the state of
mind of a man before dinner and after who
suffers from indigestion. Before dinner
the patient'! thoughts are something of
"What a ly thing life is! How grand
it is to breathe the pure air, to revel iu the
glorious sunshine, to laugh and Ik-merry!
With friendv all around, a prosperous fu
ture before one, all one's hopes and plans
turn out Well. It may safely be said
that we live in a good country, and that
life is the most enjoyable state imagina
ble." But after dinner, when the salmon and
the encumber and the lobster salad have
L"gun to do heir deadly work, the same
niu'i thinks s uncthing like this:
"Life is a fraud. Those who say life is
worth living are humbugs. We gouiout
the world With a heavy load of care, and
from morning till night our time is spent
in battling with new annoyances. Bid,
