Bketeu of a Novel Party.
fWaverly IN. J.1 Cor. New York Express. !
Dickens parties , are tho latest craza
among the young ladies of this place.
One was given , not long ago for tho
benefit of a church hero , and proved no.t
only a financial and social success , bat
also showed in a striking manner how
en Toy able an affair of the kind can bo
made with proper study and care. The
largest hall of the city was hired for the
occasion. Around the big room booths
were constructed , each one represent
ing a work of th'e author. Ho two wore
at all alike in their decorations or ar
rangement , but each was , furnished to
give a prominent picture'of the book
represented us nearly aspossible. . Tho
characters were mostly taken by tho
young people. They were dressed iu
appropriate costumes to suit tho leading
characters of the book taken.
Interest in the entertainment was
largely augmented by the fact that each
person had carefully studied his or her
part that the character was acted out in
close imitation of Dickens' most striking
and best known creations. First in
order of tho several booths was one rep
resenting the novel of "David Copper-
field. " At first glancp there was recog
nized within ' it David , Dora , Agnes ,
Uriah 'Heep , Mrs. Heep , Betsy Trot-
wood , Barkis , and Peggoty. David and
Dora could be seen sitting close together ,
apparently engaged iu their love-talk or
discussing tho difficulties of household
management In Dora's arms was her
favorite little black-and tan over jyhich
she could not ma o enough fuss , ' 'ff'ed-
ing it candy most of this time. All those
characters wero especially well taken ,
tho costumes having evidently been
selected at much pains. Uriah Heep's
"make-up" was pronounced perfect.
Little Emily was the only person nota
bly missing from the famous group. It
was said that the young lady taking tho
part was indispose'd.
Calclmx , a New Stimulant.
( Philadelphia Patriot ]
"Do you see that pale , emaciated
young man leaning in a half-dazed con
dition against tho lamp-post over there : "
said a prominent physician to a re
porter , in reply to the query , "Anything
now ? "
"Why , yes ; ho seems to be recovering
from a prolonged spreo. Is ho much
addicted to it ? "
" .Nothing of the kind. I doubt if ho
ever touched a drop in his life. He is
a calchax-root eater. "
"A what ? "
"Why , an eater * of the root of the cal-
chax , a smallshrub that grows on the
table-lands of Mexico , and is found no-
whero else. It is a species of opium ,
almost unknown , at least to thp medi
cal profession , until a short time ago.
It is a deadly poison , and prolonged in
dulgence is certain extermination. The
effects are something like that of an
opiate , except that it is by far more
powerful , half a grain being sufficient
to cast one into a sleep that bears the
closest resemblance to death. A pallor
spreads over the features , and the heart
beats almost imperceptibly. The limbs
grow stiff and cold , and the whole body
assumes the appearance of a corpse. It
beats cigarette smoking , don't you
think ? "
London's Great Thoroughfares.
[ Scottish American Journal. !
In London there are two "Houses , "
two "Hows , " two "Lanes" and two
"Streets. " In the west end "the House"
means the House of commons ; in the
city "the House" means tho stock ex
change. In tho west end "the Row"
means the ride in Hyde park ; in the
city it means Paternoster , tho head
quarters of the book publishing trade o
the world. In the west end "the Lane'1
means Park lane , the headvuarters of
npper tendom ; in the city "the Lane"
means the lane Mincing , the headquar
ters of the produce trade of the world.
In the west end "tho street" means ox
ford street , a great shopping thorough
fare many miles in length ; in the city
"the Street" means Throgmorton street ,
a very darrow , very short thoroughfare ,
where outside speculators love to con
gregate. London's weak points is
"hills. " There is nothing loftier within
hundreds of miles than the hills of
Highgate , Hampstead , Corn , Snow , ,
Richinon , Holburn and Ludgate , all of
which are over-topped many times over
by Dumbarton castle , not to mention
tho Bens of Lomond aud Nevis.
The Workin 501:1:1 iu Chill.
[ Sintiago Cor. Kvnsis City Journal. ]
The manufacturing interests of Chili
labor under the weight of titful work.
A gentleman long resident here says
that it is a very signiiicant factor in all
projects , rendering business uncertain
and expensive. A laborer thinks noth
ing of quitting work without a mo
ment's notice and the slighest change
of machinery , , or mode of work , thougn
a benefit to the workman as well as em
ployer , is followed by cessation of work
on the part of the former.
I have already mentioned tho insta
bility of workmen addicted to drink. A
little money on Saturday gives the man
enough to be intoxicated for days and
often the factory will be without its
full quota of help for three days , and
then the operatives return slowly. And
yet tho people seem industrious and tho
credit of the republic is first rate.
The Itaca Hat
The aboriginal inhabitants of New
foundland were red Indians , or Bi o-
thies. They wero originally doubtless
from Canada , coming th straits of
Belle Isle. They are supposed to have
belonged to the Algonquin branch.
There is now in the museum at St.
Johns a human skull , the last token of
a once powerful but now extinct tribe.
It is said that Cabot on his second voy
age brought away three ofajthe aborig
ines , and they were kept by the king in
the palaco of Westminster.
She Was Not .Frightened.
[ Detroit Fre i Vres. I
A little 4-year-old cirl " was put to bed
in the third story "of her home , and
left , as usual , in the dark. A terrific
thunder storm came up , and her
mother , thinking the child would be
frightened at the lightning , went to her.
On entering the child called out with
delight : "Mamma ! the wind blew the
sun up just now ; did you see it ? " Fear
had no entrance there.

1 'MJonh-and-TumMo" Fight Between Twi
| I'ugilistlc Cadet * Klii itnd Keferne.
[ United Scvico. . ]
j Promptly tho principals would throvj
off uniform coats and and caps , unsling
suspenders , if they wore them fevv
cadets ever did and then tho seconds
would see to it that rings wero removed
from the fingers. Tho referee would
caution the crowd against tho faintest
cheer or noiso , and order them to keep
well back if "rough and tumble ' was
decided on , or to form a ring if it were
"staud-up. ' The formi-r was most in
favor , as being quicker , sooner over
among evenly matched men , and less
liable to interruption , so "rough-and-
tumble" it generally was , uuless a pair
of scientific boxers were pitted in the
Kicking , gouging , biting or striking
below the belt were njver permitted an
instant. The fight was lost to him
whoso temper might betray him into
such a thing , and no cadet was bound
to give him satisfaction in the future.
These things were well understood. In
three minutes from their arrival in the
fort the seconds had their men in readi
ness ; tho referee quietly nodded "go
ahead , " and the men wero brought face
to face , and , with no other formality ,
lot tiy at each other's headpiece For
two minutes , perhaps , they would mako
the air lively with resounding thuds ,
the blows would be thick and fast , and
the combatants would dance around at
a lively rate.
Then would come tho clinch , tho
straining wrestle , aud then the heavy
fall to earth , with the seconds bonding
over and watching every move ; and tlio
excited crowd muttering not shouting
cheer or counsel , the struggle would
last until the exhaustion of one party
proved him defeated. Then his seconi : ,
not he , could call enough. A blow one
instant after that wns"foul ; a word of
menace or abuse during tho fight was
punishable by the referee , and no man
dare interfere so long as fair play was
observed. I never saw more honest ,
fair fighting than at n'esc Point , and of
the hundred or more that took place
during my four years of cadet life I can
recall only two that wero not pluckily
and sturdily fought out to the bitter
end. Then , and usually not until then ;
time and again havj I heard the o icnd-
ing party , whether victor or van
quished , express his regret to the chal
lenger for tho word or deed that had
caused the trouble.

[ London IllrstrnU : I Nos
Many gifts have been bestowed upon
our poots , among others physical beauty.
No doubt there are some who
have been ill-favored. lierrick , if
his portrait speaks truly , was an ugly
man : so was Jonson ; so , as we all know ,
was Oliver Goldsmith , and 1 ope , though
ho had .splendid eyes , was deformed.
But Chaucer , Spencer and Shakespeare
were handsome men. Milton , as a
young man was extremely beautiful ,
and called the lady of his college , while
iu later life the want of sight left.his
handsome face uninjured. Dryden , too ,
had fine features , and was a notable
man in appearance Burns had eyes
which literally glowed , and Scott , who
had seen all the great men of his time ,
said he had never seen such another eye
in a human head.
Scott s own face was homely and
lovable , but his eye , too , Hashed with
poetic fire at the notes of border song ;
and Southey had "the most spirited coun
tenance that ever human form was
graced with. " Wordsworth's face did
not , perhaps , indicate tho fire and soul
within ; but Byron was splendidly Hand
some , Shelley was beautiful , so was
Keats , who had "an expression as if ho
had been looking on some glorious
sight. " Of living poets it is scarcely
fitting to speak , but as long as we still
have with us the laureate , Mr. Brown
ing , and bir Henry Taylor , there is am-
Ele evidence that the royal line of 5 ng-
sh poets has not physically degener

IBoston Bulletin "Eeco'Iectio i * . " "
Speaking of queer sleeping places
when we wero quartered in Little Wash
ington one company was quartered in a
brick warehouse , and the whola upper
part was divided into immensely big
bins containing corn all shelled. We
found it quite a soft bed , only when
once laid down in any position you made
quite a mold of your body in the yield
ing mass of corn , and frequently on
waking up in the morning I would find
myself at an angle of forty-five degrees ,
my head down , nearly buried in tho
corn , and my left or ri ht arm buried to
tho shoulder. It was hot so comforta
ble after all.
I have tried a bed , of mud , with my
head against the trunk of a tree and thu
water trickling down my neck lit rained
at that time ) and. two or three inches
of water around me .1 never recollect
getting cold or suffering any serious
discomfort resulting from exposure to
dampness , or rain , or mud beds , or any
thing of that kind. A fellow can get
used to almost anything. If our clothes
were wet , build a fire , if we could ; if
not , stir about and dry them that way.
I.oiig L > i tvnco Telephoning.
There is no practical limit to long
distance telephoning. If it wasn't for
induction , you could run a wire across
the continent and talk through it. An
invention that would do away with in
