BlRA1U I'S NEW lUURK LETTER.
In the early part of the. present
cent.u y there was :,n exhi:"ition in
the city of London which the c .eknev
of that dat called Sinnuons Vax
Vorks It was a collection of hor- t
rors and monstrosities, in which Guy
F'awkes. l):iuiel Lambert, l)iek Tur- t
piu. Tuttle the murderer, and many 1
other famous and disreputable people
took part. It fulfilled its mission.
andl finally passed that bourne from
which even \v ax Works do not re
turn. and was superseded over
forty years ago by the famous exhi
bition of Madam Tussaud. This ex
hibition starting at first with a very
few figures, in the course of years
became one of the sights of London,
and the man who visited London
without calling on Madam Tussaud
was thought to be a very indifferent
specimea of a tourist.
In our own country we have had
several collections of wax works.
Old Peal's Museum had a number of
diabolical monstrosities, and "Our t
Saviour's Last Supper" at Barnum's
Museum is st:li remembered by those
who are now grandmothers and grand
fathers. Our Centennial Exhibition
in 1876 aw:-kened us t. a sense of 1
the possibilities of plastic art. To 1
many that exhibit was a revelation,
and ~it was a genuine pleasure to all
lovers of plastic art in New York that1
we saw the inauguration of the Eden
Musee. Many thousands of dollars1
hav'e been invested in this admirable
exhibit which in all of its elegant sur
roundings far surpasses the famons
London exhibition. There is noth
ing in Paris to equal it, and when It
is more generally known, it is bound
to become one of the most popular
exhibitions in the city. It is imipos
sible in the brief space necessarily
alloted to amusements to give even a
remote idea of the excellence of this
admirable exhibition. The Eden
M&see is an elegant structure situa
ted on 23d street in the most fashion
able part of the city. As you enter
the door you see a couple of English
tourists who are evidently preparing
to go in to see the show. '1 hey have
paused to examine a bill and you are
horrified to observe a man in the act
f picking his pocket. and just as
you are about to give the alarm you
observe with satisfaction that he is
watched by a policeman who is look
ng around the corner of the box of
fee. Yc u watch the group fur some
time andl as they fail to move you
realize for the first time that they are
part of the exhibition. Entering the
vestibule you are conftronted by sev
eral grand groups-one representing
the principal rulers of the world, and
the other representingr many of the
most notable peop)le in the world of
literature and art. .In front sits Vic
tor Hugo, one of the noblest heads
in the collection; near at hand and
looking sweet as a pink is Patti whose
olden notes have charmed the ears
of that select set who can afford to
a' her $5.000 a night for the privil
ege. A striking figure is that of the
ercat artist Messonier--very French;
no need to tell you his nationaility
The face is strongly marked by su
percilious'.ess and van]ity. but it is
not to be wo'.dered at, for great as
e is in art, his intolerable egotism
makes him anything but a pleasant
companion. The great G eromne, whose
works are known and admired wher
ever art has a lover, sits near H ans
Markart, whose magnificent works
hae been the wonder and delhght of
both hemispheres for the past fifteen
years. Saddest of all when looking
on that group to think that the im
mortal genius which created so much
that was beautiful and grand, should
perish at last in hopeless ruin. 'The
interior Salon is a delightful place
and around it are some exceedingly
uni(ue objects of art. A negrc bide

he wiped the beads of perspiration
from his brow. "Ice-water's cool,

There are none of them beating. I
shall sip my milk leisurely while
eating, and eat as slowly as possible.
Now, what have you there? Oh, a

fried potatoes, apple fritters, a cup of
hot coffee and cnstard pie. My dear

JEWS RtETUYRNING TO PILES
The return of the Jews to Palestine
has been a favoritc hobby of zealous

engaged in farming there and in
Austria, Poland, and the Balkan
countries. It is these persecu ions
doubtless, and the prospect of more,
which have stirrea the Jews at last.
They may well think that if go they

they would be fulfilling prophecy into

A BIG SPREE AND DEATH TO
Louis andGeorgeGueld were young
artisans of Alsace-Lorraine, one thir
ty and the other twenty-eight, both
with flaxen hair, blue eyes and fair
skins, and both jolly, ind'strious and
bright. Each was engaged to be
married and they came to this coun
try to make money enough to buy
some land :,djoining a piece they had
inherited and make two farms for
themselves. They went west and re
inained two years, and last week
stopped in New York on their way
home with $2,000 they had saved.
They sang French love songs, and
gayly told the people about the hotel
of the sweet hearts they were going
home to and the happiness they ex
pected. The younger brother went on
a spree, picked up a handsome young
woman somewhere, and with her aid
spent all nis money in about three
days. He returned and told his elder
brother who immedia- ely had his own
drafts cashed, and the two went on a
spree together. U hen they had'spent
the last cent they returned to their
room and matched pennies to deter
mine which should handle a revolver
they had. The loser took the wea
pon and shot his brother through the
head and then blew out his own
brains. They were- found there to
gether, one dying and the other dead.
The above is but one among the
many thousands of the thrilling and
eloquent temperance le'ctures in real
life, and which day by day send a
thrill of horror through the land.
SLOW, BUT SURE.
The old Hebrew idea of a man of
honor is set forth in the Psalmist's
words: "He that sweareth to his
own hurt, and changeth not." We
express the same idea by our phrase :
"His word is as good as his bond."
A man who would merit the appli
cation of these epithets to himself
should be careful to heed these old
sayings: "Make few promises," and:
"Never promise more than you are
able to perform."
There are men of business, men
amcng those that scorn to tell ,a lie,
deliberately, who seldom heed this
wise advise. They allow the press
of business, or the desire to retain an
impatient customer, to tempt them to
make promises which they are unable
to keep either to the ear or to the
hope. Such men generally find that
their expedients stamp them as 'uin
reliable. In the long run, the man
who is cautious in promising, but
faithful in performance, is the one
whom suc:ess welcomes.

During a rush of work, the foreman

But the overseer was not blind,

He noticed that Bob's job was always

other boys, on the contrary, were nev

anxiety to avoid a scolding.
The result was that Bob became
the trust3d boy of the offce, and was
allowed to take his own time in work

this plan of doing exactly what he
said he would along with him when
he was promoted. To-day the slow
