Someone passing along Eighteenth
street yesterday afternoon threw a
lighted cigar stub into a bu!rrv be

ever, extinguished the blaze, before
much damage was done.

A prettier block of aving it would

quality of brick was used in con

got a particularly neat surface.

End of Tolapuk 1 n France.
Many persona will pe rhaps breathe a
righ of relief on hearing that Volapnk is
doomed in this country at least. French
business men will have none of it. Its
most energetic apostle and propagator
has been sent away froi l the Paris head
qnarters of the Volapt kists and is now
filling an important pott as professor of
German in a provinciiil college. This
being the case, the l aembera of the
French association of Yolapukists have
decreed the dissolution of their society.
Nevertheless they had at one time great
hopes of success, and tl eir strange jar
gon was almost elevated for a while to
the rank of a fashionable fad.
Lectures in the new language, which
was to undo all the damage wrought by
the Babel affair long ag , were attended
by numerous students of both sexes,
and small sheets in tie strange com
pound of tongues were disseminated
every week among aderts and the gen
eral public. By degree s the craze died
out, and the number cf Yolapukists in
Paris dwindled down to a few enthu
siastic persons fnll of set timents peculiar
to those who cling through thick and
thin to lost causes. Paris Letter.
The Confirmation of Eckels.
The confirmation of Mr. Eckels as
comptroller of the currency is a victory
for ilr. Cleveland, whe played a high
game and won. It is tie w known that it
caused no little feeling on the part of
Secretary Carlisle, who did not think
that Eckels was a fit nan for the post
and said oo. jevei-ll:cl( s-s he would not
antagonize the presidew in the question
of confirmation. Persons who well
know the fee-lings of the president say he
is greatly enconraged ai to the future,
including the wnate's reputed hostility
on the silver question.
The line of battle agai ast the president
was formed, and word sent that if he
would save himself from lefeat, he should
withdraw Eckels' nan?. To winch he
is said to have replieel, in substance, that
if senators chose they might reject the
nomination, and he wou d see them later,
This had the effect of p roducing a sober
second thought, and I Eckels waa con
firmed. Persons who know the new
comptroller say he will astonish Wall
street and other financud centers before
he has been long in offic e. Washington
A Picturesque Outfit Disappearing From
Plains of Northern Africa.
A great caravan in march is a
superb spectacle; alas, too infrequent
now in Northern Africar At first
Arabs alone can detect it, a mere
speck lost in a dusty halo, whence it
emerges at length a tawny-colored
mass possessed of a strange motion,
the swarming of a thousand lives in
Here and there silhouettes of strag
gling camels stand - profiled, like
heiroglyphics, on the fiery: sky, as,
insensibly trailing its snake-liko
curves, the convoy advances. Hours
after being sighted, it passes in slow
defile, led by a vanguard of blooded
camels, whose gait and bearing have
and air of arrogance not customary
to that race of proletarians, the
chieftains seated aloft in their float
ing burnooses, alert of eye, with gun
in hand, statuesque guardians of the
Behind them the camels of burden,
exhausted less by loads than with the
fatigues of the journey, the r legs
and croppers bald and scarred by
blows, straggle forward languidly,
thrusting out the tongue as they
press their huge, spongy feet in the
yielding ground. What resignation
in their soft staring eyes! Yerily, no
philosopher knows better than these
poor brutes how inane are the revolts
aga'nst inexorable fate.
Near at hand walk the drivers,
their emaciated features savagely il
lumined by eyes of fire, and white,
gleaming teeth piercing their
parched lips. Of all who started
with the caravan how many have
laiien ny the way, abandoned to
agonize alone in the desolation?'
Tracking Coal Thieves.
A simple means is used to discover
where coal thieves are numerous
along the lino of some of the Penn
sylvania and New Jersey railroad?.
The coal is merely splashed with
whitewash after it has been loaded
upon the cars. As coal trains are slow
ones, and are often sidetracked for
days together at obscure little places,
where thero arc few or no employes
to guard them, ihe enemies of the
coal trust take advantage of these de
lays to replenish iheir bins. A glanco
at the load that has been sprinkled
with whitewash shows where coal
has been removed, and places where
such removals are frequent are cither
guarded or avoided afterward.
