The Women of France.
Fn nee has never produced a secoad
ix- t Sand, and the elegant chate
laine are as unlike her as possihle and
wouM be shocked to hear that there
was a nything in common between them
in thi ir beautiful tea gowns and the ec
centrc who wandered along the borders
of th Indre and in the meadows of the
vallej of the Noire, in the neighborhood
at NT .ant, in a man's costume, a frock
coat 1 uttoned tightly around the waist,
her In suriant hair falling over a Byronic
collar with a cane or whip, smoking
cigart ttos as did George Sand.
Ant) yet each one of them has some
thing of that queer mixture like her
the lc ve of literary companionship, the
desire to rise to aesthetic discussion.
Wouk n in France have always shared
in the discussion as to the property and
the business of the husband; they in the
higher circles have a desire now to join
in the thought and the literary experi
ence. The stories of Jules Janin, Bal
zac, Theophile Gautier. Alphonso Kan
are ret lete with these tokens if feminine
influence of the higher order.
The are very religious and very at
tentive to their charities. The fancy
fairs vhieh are so fashionable in the
Champs Elysees are under the conduct
always of the greatest ladies, and how
decorous, how quietly elegant they are!

son of them. Mrs. John Sherwood in

A Mute Recovers Speech.
Alpbonse Hempbliog, of Summit town
ship. Butler Co., Penn., m&deaa affidavit
that his 12vearold son, who had
had St. Vitus dance for twelve Tears, lost
his speech, was completely cured after
usine three bottles of Dr. Miles' Restora
tive Nervine, and and also recovered his
speecn. Thousands testify to wonderful
cures from using it for nervous diseases,
dyspepsia, nervous debility, dullness, con
fusion of mind, headache, etc. Four
doses of this Nervine cured Mrs. W. E.

suffering with constant headache for

On tl e island of Madagascar there are
many 1 rick and stone houses, but the
sire, t.x ire rocky and rough and narrow,
the gr ind being in the same condition
as uatt re made it. You see, no roads
are allowed to be built in that country
and tin towns have narrow footpaths
for strejts. Otherwise the natives be
lieve tl at foreigners could the better
march I ddiers over the island and sub
due it. There are no carriages there lo
calise t lere are no roads. Goods are
conveye 1 from the coast to the interit r
on the aacks of strong men, each of
whom, by the use of a bamboo, can
cam- 10 pounds. There are not over
ten good horses on the island, but there
are prob ibly o00 small ponies used for
riding. The island has a standing army
of 90,001 under the native queen.
The n itives speak the Malagasy lan
guage, w Inch is a branch of the Malay
tongue. Formerly their language was
simply a spoken language, but the Prot
estant u issionaries reduced it to writ
ing and published a grammar and formu
lated a system. The queen patronizes an
independent congregational creed, and
hence that is the fashionable and most
powerful religion on the island. Inter

The M;.ories are sometimes generally
and ever exquisitely poetical, One of
them rel; tes how the heavens and the
earth w re the beginning of things
united ir; marriage, and how the sky
was torn away from the partner of her
love by her own children, the storm
winds. Every night she weeps over her
lost hmiwnd. and her tears are the dew.
Sometinn s the stories are very quaintly
and oddh- imaginative, as where the
tale is tul 1 of three brethren who took a
canoe to hah, and went far, far out into
the open sea, when one of them who had
prepared a magic hook, caught what
was supposed to be a great fish at the
bottom, and drawing it up to the sur
face found that he had discovered New
That w;j how the land came into be
ing and he Maories point to two or
three of t te great mountain ranges as
the stone canoes in which their giant
ancestors -ame from some far off coun
try to people the land. The mixture of
childish naivete and high imagination
makes th collection actually fascinat
ing. Com emporary Review.
Is the Earth Hollow T
The ortl odox Icelander believes that
the earth 1 as an opening through it from
pole to poie; in other words, that it is
the exact c onnterpart of a gigantic head.
According to their ide;isall waters which
flow to the north are drawn thitherward
by a suctif n created by the oceans tum
bling downward through the hollow
which tfaej firmly believe exists. Their
authority f or this curious belief is the
"Utama !St ga," a semisacred work writ
ten early it the Fourteenth century.
If this ancient volume is to be "relied
upon, one Bjoxn Liefson, a fisherman,
who was driven northward by a fierce
gale about he year 1291. is the only hu
man being who has ever seen the srx.t
where the vaters of all oceans plunge
downward ind are not seen again until
they have passed entirely through the
earth and -.gain appear, bubbling and
frothing lik ; a mammoth spring at the
south iwjle. By mines, an American
arctic exph rer. is said to have enter
tained a notion somewhat similar. St.
