A Kaxsas farmer has a theory that
the moon is a piece of the earth that
got raised in a cyclone.
All the births and weddings in the
royal family of England are entered
in the register of the ehapel Royal
AcToit Clhtis is on trial for the
third time on the charge of killing a
San Francisco policeman. It has the
appearance of persecution, and at all
events the unforyinate actor lias loen
severely punished already.
The St. Lonis Republic says edi
torially: "The report published by
a Washington paper that Representa
tive Springer is to be retired from
the chairmanship of the house com
mittee on ways and means and the
place given to either McMilHn. of
Tennessee, or Wilson, of West Vir
ginia, may be true, but it would not
do to accept such reports at present
as authoritative statements."
To Kansas once again we must
look for novelty. Two suits have
been -brought there against a rain
making company which professes to
have caused a cloudburst in Lvon
county. The storm ruined the
wheat field of a farmer and through
a washout killed an engineer on the
Santa Fe line. Now the farmer sues
the company forthe loss of his wheat
and the 'widow of the engineer wants
compensation for the loss of him.
The Street Car Code.
The question of street car polite
ness or gallantry may be regarded as
settled in Faris if the decision of one
of the leading papers, the Figaro,
may be taken as final. Inasmuch as
we have had a great deal of discus,
sion upon this same subject in this
country, the views of the French
journal and some of its fair corres
pondents mayj be interesting here.
A correspondent asked the
Figaro if A gentleman seated in' an
omnibus or a tramway, with all the
seats 'occupied, should give up his
place to a lady the . moment she ap
peared at the door. The Parisian
journal says that in a public convey
ance each one should occupy the
place for which he has paid. This, it
says, is the opinion of a majority of
our readers, and particularly the so
ciety, ladies who never wear dia
monds in an omnibus. They don't
admit that ladies should. accept the
politeness, or rather the service, of
gentlemen whom they do not know.
One of them gives this opinion:
When a lady is contented with the
cheap means of locomotion provided
by the omnibus companies she ac
cepts all the conditions. In all cities
where there are omnibuses, .tram
ways and other public, . vehicles, a
woman can see immediately whether
there is room inside or not. If, on
seeing that there is no vacant place,
she nevertheless enters the car, she
takes a position which she ought to
sustain. To permit a man to disturb
himself for her when she might wait
for another car if it was impossible
for her to remain standing, would be
an evidence on her part of a want of
good breeding. It is very easv for
her to thank the gentleman negative
ly and politely in a few short words,
so that the incident may not be pro
longed. Nothing can be more an
noying for iteuted travelers than this
mutual exchange of so-called cour
tesies nnd congratulations whlch
goes Ou at .their kuees anil threatens
their feet, perhaps more or lesB
afflicted with corns. Remain seated,
gentlemen, remain seated ; tlKNadij;
cannot complain oj that,-- without
giving satisfaction to those men; wtvtt,
reproach them Jor J.ho.ir ; wanjt of
logic. Since they Insist 'upon equal
ity before' the law, with all the rights
and privileges of! metr, they fcliould"
put up with all) that mpn liay.ejto en-J
dure. A woman in an tomniUrfs
should remain standing whenHhere
is no vacant Beatjut as(amnrtles
under the j sante circAinjstaneel."
Another correspondent 1 say: "Re
main seated, -gentlemen; you- cna do
it without a ; breach ' .of politeness
When the fine ladjes with their dia
monds take the omnibus or the tram
way, do not disturb -"yourselves; for
them, for,iJLyou do you will onl v be'

That is not poiuyiflS it is- simply

ly as aha stool, shears in hand, in front
of the dining room table on which the
cloth for Abe' i new suit was spread oat.
' Abe looked wistfully at his father.
"Well now, JIarthy," said Mr. Davis
mildly to ' hiui energetic helpmate, "I
dunnoV Td cr t it to much more'n fit

;Mrs. Davis looked doubtfully at her1'
husband.. : He had not a reputation for
great liberalii y, yet here he was 'advo
cating a plan which was almost certain
to result in "a year's waste of good
cloth," for Abi had no younger brother
to take his out jrown clothes.
"Ye see," be jan Mr. Davis again, feel
ing that he was the object of embarrass
ing scrutiny fiom his thrifty spouse, "I
alius ree'lect i boy- that was raised in
Enderville, not fur from where we lived,
till I was well inter my teens.' 1
"His mother made it a practice to 'al

him, I can tell ye. I I knew him pooty
well, bein rais-jd in the same town, ye

boy, an would: vt hev looked extry good,
anyway, but his clethes alius hung ofFn
him, jest as ef he'd ben left outin the
rain sometime an bed shrunk.
"His mother wa'n't a master hand at
cuttin anyway not anywheres near as
good as you be. Marthy," said Mr. Davis,
feeling that here was an opportunity for
a handsome compliment, which was re
ceived with an air of conscious worth by
his wife, "an it was a eorrerful sight to
see that boy!
"He never caught up to the size of his
garmints, to my knowledge; never! An
other boys usee, to rke fun at him con
sid'ble boys w hose mothers wasn't quite
so forehanded in their idees and cuttin.
"An I rec'lo t my father's once savin
to me, referrin to that boy an the way
he looked, that he viewed it 'more things
was sp'iled allc win than was ever wast
ed makin a good fit.' An he meant it
more ways 'n one. So, I say, make Abe's
suit come som wheres near him, an ef
he grows out'ii it 'fore it's wore IH git
him anew one.''
Mr. Davis w nt out to the barn, and
Mrs. Davis be; ran to cut out the new
suit, pinning it on to patient Abe now
and then to try the effect.
When she said at last, Tve got to a
place where yon can go now," he hurried
out to his father.
Tm real otleeged to you, father, fer
what you said," he remarked, with evi
dent gratitude. "My last suit o' clothes
was so big fer rie that"
' "Sho, boy, dc n't you s'pose I noticed

er's a good hand at cuttin, trat she's got
some notions land o' like my mother's,
seems's ef .
"An that boy I was tellin you of you
needn't say anythin about it to your
mother but I vras that boy m'self, an
there's some ree'lections that stays by
me more'n othei-s!''
Then they, ej.ch fell to rubbing up a
harness, their hearts warm with the
thought of the trial they had in common,
though one had endured it 30 years be

The Carelessness of Brothers. .
The girl who lias a brother knows how
careless a brother can be about sweet
little notes and long, affectionate letters.
She knows hovr many he receives of
them, and this is a knowledge that would
surprise the othi r girls. They have such
dainty stationer? the other girls with
monograms and all that sort of thing,
and they seem to like so well to use it in
writing to the brother, and he is rather
proud than otherwise of these communi
cations. Why should he care if people know
that the prettief t, sweetest girls on the
avenne begin fcieir letters to him in
rather a familiar style and end them in a
manner even nore so? So it happens
that he often leaves specimens of his cor
respondence lying about in a way that
would surprise and grieve their fair and
trusting writers. -
The girl who lias a brother gives her
messages to her gentleman acquaint
ances by word of mouth when possible.
Otherwise she 'vrites a note that the

English Common I aw an Enemy of Women.
That curious compendium of judicial
and legislative wisdom, the English com
mon law, comes down to tis from the
feudal days whm those forming the
militant half of the human race were
held to be properly the holders of all
property, becaus 3 they could defend
their rights to it in battle, and therefore
it discriminated in every possible way
against the:"disaff line."- This has
been the underlying impulse of every
decision unjust -:o women. The cruel

THE MISSING LINK. , ; . .
Professor Ylrchow Says That It Is as Vim'

We know that man existed in -
quaternary epoch, that he lived thr;
long ages miserable and depressed, winio
stone, wood, horn and bone constituted
the material of his arms and of his few
instruments. Wo are convinced that a
Itmg interval separated the ago of stone
from the age of metals and that only in
particular places was., the use of stone
Immediately replaced by that of metals,
These are the data which now make part
of the general knowledge acquired by
civilized nations since the foundation of
the congress, but further studies respect
ing the origin and the regions whence
the different branches of civilization have
sprung have advanced relatively but very
little. We seek in vain for the "missing
link" connecting man with the monkey
or any other animal species.
There exists a definite barrier separat
ing man from the animal which has not
yet been effaced heredity, which trans
mits to children the faculties of their
parents. We have never 6een a monkey
bring a man into the world, nor a man
produce a monkey. All men having a
simian appearance are 6imply patholog
ical variants. It was generally believed
a few years ago that there yet existed a
few human races which still remained
in the primitive inferior condition of
their organization. But all theso races
have been objects of minute investiga
tion, and we know that they have an or
ganization like ours, often indeed supe
rior to that of supposed higher races.

Some races have the same skulls very
small, of about the same volume as the
microcephalous skulls. For example, the
inhabitants of the Andaman' islands and
the Veddahs of Ceylon have been re
garded as i;.ierocephalic. A more exact
study has, howvver, shown, a difference
between them tad the real microcephalic
races. The head of an Andaman islander
or of a Veddah is very regular, only all
its parts cro a littl-j s csaller than among
