A Feeullar Inn.
The only subsidized inn, perhaps, is on
the Island of Capri. Mine host, grateful
for the long continued patronage of artists,
who are the chief foreign residents of the
island, and knowing that they are far from
rich, left the inn to bis heirs with tlie.e cu
rious conditions annexed: The charge per
day, two bottles of red Capri wine included,
is never to be more than six francs; if any
artist is too poor to pay so much he shall
pay what he can and paint a picture upon
some wall space, receiving all the accom
modations accorded to those paying the
highest price; if any German artist who
bus failed as a student of art iu Italy shall
corue to the inn he shall lie accommodated,
and shall receive the amount of his fare to
Germany upon his promise never to return
to Italy. Tlie provisions of the will seem
to have Ix-en carried out faithfully, for the
prices are lncx'n rate, the red wine is always
obtainable, and the walls of the inn Hrt
covered with paintings, the work of impe
cutiiouf artists. Xew York S:;:.

The author of "The History of Brazil"
tells of a species of monkey called "prt nch
era." Every morning and evening these nioii
keys assemble in the woods. One takes a
higher position than the rest, and n-';es a
signal with his fore paw. At this signal the
others sit around him and listen. Wheu
they are all seated he begins to utter a
series of sounds. When he stops these
cries he makes another signal with his
paw, and the others cry out until he makes
a third signal, upon which they become
silent again. This author, Mr. Maregrove,
asserts that he was a witness to these
preachings, but no other traveler has con
firmed the statement.
