A arj is told illustrating the rigid dls
ciplire of the Russian army. One of the
gram dukes told the czar that a sentinel
at thi railroad crossing at Peterbof refused
to raise the gate for bis carriage, although
the tt sin was not due for three or four
minu es. "It is against orders, your im
perial highness," the soldier replied, the
role 1 eing that when the gate was shut it
must not lie opi ned until after the train
had p kSSed. The CSS!" said he was glad to
hear i hat the soldier knew how to obey or
ders. The grand duke laughed and said
he wss certain that if the czar himself had
been present discipline would have given
way. The czar did not reply, but a few
days ; fter, to put the matter to the test,
he dri ve up with the czarina just after the
gate 1 .id leen lowered. The czar called to
the se itinel to let him pass. The sentinel,
in gri-nt trepidation, saluted, but did not
move uhe gate-.
"Open the gate, I tell you," cried the
emperor; "don't yon know who I am?"
"Yes, your imperial majesty, but it's
again.' t orders, and I cannot open the
gate," answered the sentinel, still salut
ing ar d turning almost blue with anxiety,
but n t moving an inch from his place. "I
am th czar, and I command you to open,"
cried the czar again. "I can't do it, your
imper al majesty," despairingly cried the
sentin -1, still standing Arm, .lust then the
train passed. The czar burst into laugh
ter, aid warmly commending the aston
ished ; entry, presented him with a twenty
five ruble note and drove back to the
palace Xew York Sun.
A Criticism in Scientific Light.
The giants in our gigantomaehia. whose
thighs change at haif tin ir length into
aerpents, and which, instead of two legs,
stand on two vertebral columns running
out imo heads, with separate brains. Spinal
marrows, hearts, intestinal canals, lungs,
kidlMJ I and sense- organs, are and remain
an intolerable sight to the morphologically
cultivated eye, and prove that, although
the sculptors of Pergamoo were superior
in technical ability to their predeceaaora of
the age of 1 I Idles, they were inferior to
them i 1 refinement of artistic feeling. They
were perhaps pardonable so farastradition

Count People to the 1'ront in Cities.
The -onfiict between city people and
those who live in the country is as old aa
hitory There always has been an intlux
EroSD witboot to within. So long as the
area of . itii s was limited, this was strong
ly and successfully resisted by the citizens.
They f -It themselves a superior class tc
the rus ics. The very words "urlian" and
"rustic ' tell the story.
The Romans called the outside dwellers
"villau f fr.m which come two words,
one of lonorable significance, ' villa.'' ami
the otl er, perhaps a little modified by
mediae al QSe, 'Villain." Roman c itizen's
looked ihrwn upon the country folk as an
averagl New Yorker docs upon a stray
Jerseyaian from the pines.
All literature baa been tinged by this
feeling, and lth writers sad statesmen
have continued to deplore the excessive
growth of cities as a national evil, and
have ex korted tint rynien to stay at home,
telling them how much better off they
were in the country.
Observation has now taught us that this
growth if cities is a necessary part of the
evolution at our social structure, and that
it is Dot a growth at the expense of the
country, but for the benefit of the country,
ns well is that of the city. T. C. Clark in

begun to do their deadly work, the same
man thi ;ks something iike this:

One of. she curiosities of this country a
curiositj that does not appear in the "his

though hundreds have been tried, has been

nothiug but a hill from which steam and

The rods ate so licit that sometimes it is
impossible to touch them without pain,
