Friendships of Snakes.
There is a certain coolness almost to
be called a positive want of cordiality
between snakes and human beings.
More, the snake is never a social favor
ite among the animals called lower. No
body makes an intimate friend of a
snake. lopular natural history books
are filled ind running over with anec
dotes of varying elegance and mendac
ity, settiig forth extraordinary affec
tion and co-operation between a cat and
a mouse, a horse and a hen, a pig and a
cockroach, a camel and a lobster, a cow
and a wheelbarrow and so on, but thern
is never i. snake in one of these quaint
alliances. Snakes do not do that sort of
thing, and tho anecdoto designer's imag
ination has not yet risen to the feat of
compelling them, although tho stimulus
of competition may soon causo it.
The case most nearly approaching one
of friendship between man and snako
known to mo is tho case of Tyrrell, the
zoo snak'keeper, and his "laidly worms."
But then the friendship is mostly on
Tj-rreH'B side, and, moreover, Tyrrell is
rather riore than human, as any ouo
will ada it who sees him hang boa con
strictors around his neck. Of course
one often hears of boys making pets of
common English snakes, but a boy is
not a human creature at all. Ho is a
kind of harpy. Arthur Morrison in

when you want to blame all the trouble
on tho way you got out of bed in the

on thes j hateful days, manage to think
twice before you speak once it will save
a lot of worry on the morrow. In fact,
that is a good rule to go by at all times,

Some Are Ranged Among tlie Notables of j
ruri Their Work aud Manners. I
The newspaper women of France are j
comparatively few. They are constant
ly accused of a total lack of the critical
faculty and of a want of perception of
the ridiculous. Furthermore, their ideas
on ethics and philosophy are said to be
"stale." Nevertheless it is true that
their contributions to magazines and pe
riodicals are impatiently awaited and
widely read, after which many of the
masculine writers go into mental con
vulsions and tear their vocabularies in
tatters in trying to prove that thesa femi
nine effusions were worse than worth
less. The women who, in spite of this, per
sist in writing do not have sinecures.
Not long ago at a celebrated criminal
trial a woman journalist presented her
self at the court ks the judiciary reporter
of a leading morning newspaper in Paris.
The police are said to have been aghast
when Mine. Seviriue drew forth her pad
and pencil and deauuided admission to
the press tables. The guar ;.s were some
what taken aback, and, with a deplora
ble lack of French chivalry, wanted-to
turn her away. But, by wit or wiles of
some sort, she gained her point and
cleared a pathway for nil women report
ers who shall come after her.
Mme. Edmund Adam is another wom
an journalist, perhaps the leading one in
Paris. She is a politician, author and
editor. She has lxseu honored by the mu
nicipality of Paris in having her name
given to one t-f the stret-is of the capital,
an honor rarely bestowed on a person
during his lift-time. It isn't much cf a
street, to be sure, the Rue Juliette Lum
ber but it is young and may grow some
day. Under Napoleon III Mme. Adam
had a salon in opposition to the imperial
government, and rbero she reigned. She
was young and handsome then, with soft,
pretty hair and bright blue eyes. She
was an intense republican and a great
friend of Garibaldi. At the close of the
Franco-Prussian war sho had no one in
France to particularly oppose, so she se
lected Bismarck. Such pkruses as these
have been attributed to her: "Bismarck
and me!" "Bismarck was to have been
overthrown by me I" "At last the czar
condescends to follow my political views!"
She is a good speaker and can talk on al
most any subject. Her dinners are de
cidedly interesting. One-fourth of her
guests are usually officers of the French
army, another fourth is composed of po
litical men, aud the others are artists aud
literary people. The dinners are usually
followed by receptions, which are at
tended by cabinet ministers, deputies,
senators, diplomats and journalists.
There are, except on special occasions,
Mme. Sevcrinoj is both more valiant
and more sentimental than Mine. Adam.
Severine, as she is familiarly called, is a
well known figure in Paris. She has
been uickuamedMamzelle Gavrocheaud
Jenny L'Ouvriere, and altho;;-h she is
much given to literary floods of tears,
she writes vigorously and well. S.ie Las
her own particular conceptions of good
and evil. Severine imbibes her political
views from TheCri du Peuple (The Voice
of the People), and Mme. Adam drinks
of the fountain of La llepublique Fran
caise, founded by Ganiix!.::. ..jverineV
ambition is to i.ecure the aLjiuiou of
Mme. Yver is a curious figure in the
newspaper world. She frequents th
prefecture of police, and is remarkable
for her persistent pr.d:-e of the jiolice
and the justiie they .isiK:ii:;e. "Good,''
in her mind, is represented by tlie prefect
of police, the detectives and the gen
darmes, bnt never by the prisoners.
Gyp is another woman journalist, but
her name Mine, de Martel is better
known in connection with novels on Pa
risian high life aud as author of a few
comedies. She is a noted contributor,
in a very light vein, to that lively publi
cation, La Vie Parisienne. Gyp is popu
lar, and, besides being a writer of great
talent, paints with success.
Perhaps the most successful newspa
per women in Paris are those who write
about the thing they know best fash
ions. But men aro encroaching some
what upon this territory, and altogether
woman's place "in French journalism is
not all that could be desired. New York
Why Is It?
"Why is it that a woman can - struggle
until she is red in the face and worn out
both in temper and body by a wiudow in
a railroad train in her vain endeavors to
close or open it when all that a man has
to do is to walk up and go over exactly
the same line of actiou that she has al
ready exhausted, and down comes the re
fractory window in a jiffy? It is a most
humiliating fact, but a very true one
nevertheless, that not five women out of
a dozen ever succeed in arranging a win
dow to their satisfaction. The- pull and
tug until they are embarrassed, and
finally, in a pleading manner, look around
at gome slip of a man, who, without any
nonsense, brings about the desired effect,
while the womau looks on in silent won

Tho Derby ui a "One Ilors" Race. J
r - i . l
loiinigai or moro octoro tne
Derby everybody who talked or read
about tho fuhject must have become
wearied of tho expression that it would
be a "one horse race." It may be well,
however, to realize the fact that the Der
by appears to bo becoming a one horse in
stitution, for at the start for tho last
eight Derbies odds havo leen laid on tho
favorite with tho single exception of last
year, when tho merest shadow of odds
(11 to 10) was laid against La Fleche.
Before the race of Wednesday it seemed
reasonable to inquire whether backing
these so called certainties for the seven
previous Derbies had proved profitable.
Tlie reply was that if the sum had been
invested on the favorite in every instance
the gains would have about counterbal
anced tho losses, so that the backer
would have "had his fun for nothing,"
although he would only havo earned that
unsatisfying reward for his arduous la
bors. On the other hand, if he had put
the same sum on each of the favorites
for the seven Derbies immediately pre
ceding the one horse Derby period he
would have been a considerable loser.
So after all there is something to be said
in favor of the one horse race. London
The Government of Spuln.
The government of Spain is a limited
monarchy under the constitution which
was drawn up and proclaimed in 1870.
The power to make laws belongs to the
cortes, which consists of a sonate and a
Louse of deputies, tho senators number
ing CG0 and the deputies 431. The sena
tors are of three classes those holding
office in their own right, those nomi
nated by the crown and those elected by
the civil and ecclesiastical corporations
cf state. In the election of deputies all
male Spaniards may vote nr.der certain
restrictions, and deputies are elected in
the proportion of one deputy to every
50,000 souls of the ioptdation. Both
houses of the cortes meet every year, and
the ministers are responsible thereto.

l'.irds lOuJoy a Shower liath.
A friend reports a pretty incident.
During the hot, dry weather the birds
about her house were apparently much
in need of bathing places, and the lady
discovered that every day when she
went out to water her flowers a little
bird hovered about as if he wanted
something. Presently he revealed what
he did want by getting under the sprink
ling of the water pot or beneath the
dripping plants, and fluffing his feathers
in this shower bath just as he would in
a pool, and plainly enjoying it in tho
highest degree. He began to watch for
the daily coming of the lady to water
her plants and gave himself up to his
bath with gay abandon. Boston Tran

Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
genta down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves.1'
