A scene was created on Second
avenue last evening, to which a
young man and two' women partici
pated. The young man had ap
proached the popcorn stand on the
corner of Seventeenth street, accom
panied bv a woman and was in the
act of purchasing a package of corn,
when a second woman, apparently
infuriated with jealousy, rushed up,
and seizing the young man by the
colar, shook him as if she never ex
pected to "shake" him again. In
the meantime, the first woman in the
case fled, while the other walked off
with the young man captive.

"How much a day can you make nt that
art of -business?" asked tbe judge, uot un
kindly. Then the prisoner replied: "My master
does not pay in gold. I am not working
judge looked at the man before him
in amazement. Finally he said: "This is
no case for tbe police court at alL This
man is undoubtedly crazy." Indianapolis

Two women undertook only last week to
hunt up a fashionable bonnet maker whose
address they bad lost. Tbo bouse tbey fan

seemed almost too fine even for the "artist"

asked rather hesitatingly:
"Does a milliner live here?"

part of the door opener, a middle aged wom

pretty rich man, but I don't know as you'd

PKESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
A First and Ea;; Lraiaii In Constitutional
The powers granted to the president of
the United States by the constitution of
the United States are strictly denned, liis
authority goes thus far and no farther.
The rifjid limitation of executive power is
what constitutes tbe difference between
constitutional government or government
by the people and individual government
which is dictatorship or autocracy.
The president has power to prevent by
his veto the enactment of a bill passed by
both bouses of congress, unless the veto is
subsequently overruled by a two-thirds
vote iu each bouse, and incidentally at the
end of a session he has jiower to defeat leg
islation merely by withholding his signa
ture. This power applies also ro joint orders or
lesolutions of con;-Trcss.
The dut v of executing the laws passed by
ci ngress is vested in the president under
an oath to preserve, protect and defend the
lie is commander in chief of the army
and navy and of the militia of the states
when the militia is called into the actual
service of the United States.
He has power to require from the princi
pal officer of any of the executive depart
ments a written opinion upon any subject
relating to the duties of that department.
He has power to grant reprieves or par
dons for offenses against the United States
excent in cases of impeachment.
He has power to make treaties, with the
advice and consent of the senate. Two-
thirds of the senators present must concur.
He has power to appoint diplomatic, ju
dicial and executive officers of the United
States, with the advice and consent of the
senate. A majority of the senators must
concur. It is his duty to commission all
officers of the United States.
He has iower to appoint, without the ad
vice and consent of t he senate, such inferior
officers as congress has designated by law.
In the recess of the senate be h;us power
to fill vacancies without the advice or con
sent of the senate, by granting temporary
He lias power to inform congress a to
the state of the Union and to recommend
measures of legislat ;. n. He can convene
sor.gress or cithtr house of congress in
extra session upon extraordinary occasions,
lie can adjourn congress, but only in case
of disagreement lietwei-n the two houses as
to the time Of adjournment.
Beyond tins, nothing. Beyond tbe limits
here distinctly drawn the powi r and au
thority of the president f the United
States is no greater than that of any other
American citizen. Beyond these limitsany
attempt on i.is part to exercise power is
usurpation, and tbe attempt subjects biia
"Why should it be necessary to recite
these xrovisio:is of the constitution which
fortify American lilierty against executive
encroachment and which ought to be
known by heart by every man, woman and
intelligent child in the United States?
Because there is unquestionably in cer
tain quarters a growing disposition to con
fuse the functions of an American presi
dent with those of a C:csar or a czar; to
regard the constitutional system as a little
old fashioned, cot well suited to the pres
ent size and importance of this republic; to
erect above the const itution abigber law of
necessity or expediency, and to bail, if uot
with satisfaction, at least with toleration,
the gradual and almost insensible concen
tration of power and responsibility in the
hands of a single individual.
There is one way, and only one way short
of revolution, to change the old fashioned
constitutional system set forth above, and
that is by amending the constitution of tbo
United States. New York Sun.
Savages Along the African Coast.
Most of the people in Lileria understand
a little Englisli, or some one is found to in
terpret. There are many heathen tribes,
the most prominent being the Basses, the
Vyemen, Pessas and Gedebos. Tbey live in
thatched buts, wearing waist cloths and a
profusion of brass and boue jewelry. Their
religion is n devil worship. Polygamy and
domestic slavery are practiced. The women
do most of the work, carrying the loads,
pounding the rice, catching and cooking the
fish, while tbey also prepare the venisoa
which their lords have killed. Palm oil Is
largely used in cooking, food lieing often
quite covered with it.
All eat from the same brass or iron pot,
unless owning a basin of some kind. Some
times spoons are used, but usually they eat
with their fingers. Uumboy, as the Liber
lans call the dish, is a favorite. It is made
of cassavas, boiled and Xben lieaten in a
mortp.r and then rolled into waxy, dough
like balls, which by some sleight of hand
are thrown down the throat, as it is impos
sible to chew them. Fowl or fish is of ten
cooked with dumboy. Palm wine is drunk
to a great extent. Cor. Goldthwaite's Mag
azine. Distillation Among the Egyptians.
The decisive step in the knowledge of dis
tillation was taken in Egypt. There were
Invented the first real distilling apparatus
during the first centuries of the Christian
era. They are described precisely in thn
works of Zosimus, an author of the t hird
century, from the technical treatises of two
women chemists named Cleopatra and
Mary. In tbe margin of a Greek text of
St. Mark are tbetlrawings of tbe apparatus,
and they agreo exactly with the author's de
scriptions. P. K.M. Bert helot in Popular
