China's boll of liberty is in many ro

product of native skill, which could prob?
ably not bo duplicated by tho highest
ability or resources of western foundries.
It weighs 120,000 pounds, stands 11 feet
high, with a circumference of 34 foot and
nearly a foot in thickness. Without a Haw

an almost equal interest was awakened

her about tbe house, up stairs and down

he began to sit on the trail of her gown;
to stand as close to her as was lit and

Humanity Always Seeking Kquiility.
Perhaps-it is because wo know society
to be merely a make believe in its equality
that, so many society people regard a real
equality as impossible and are content to
remain in tbe make believe. I Sir even tbe
pretense of equality is precious, and it has
morn honesty in it than i be pretense of In?
equality. There is nothing so essentially
false as that, and the superior, when ho
takes thought, Is as distinctly aware of
the fact as the inferior. Humanity is al?
ways seeking equality. Tho patrician
wishes to be with his equals because his
inferiors make bim uneasy; tbe plebeian
wishes to bo with his equals because his
superiors make bim unhappy. This fact
accounts for Inequality itself, for classes.
Inferiority and superiority were intoler?
able to men, and so t bey formed themselves
Into classes, that inside of these classes
they ?lighl have the peace, tin- comfort, of
equality, ami each kopl hlinsolf to bis own
class for that reason.?from "Equality as

to all other Europeans by words which
signify "Cluck of the Dead Kings," It

face and a single band, the face lining in

a king in any portion of Europe tho band

remains in that position until another
king passes away. This curious custom

THE SOUTHERN DIALECT.
flow It Impressed m Writer For One of
tlio London Papers.
Tlio gentleman who writes for tho Lon?
don Sunday Times about thoatora found
hiinsolf in n>philological mood after he liad
Boon "Alabama." Hero is one of Ids para?
graphs: "As a study of dialect, as a pic?
ture of a society of which wo hero know
next to nothing, I found 'Alabama' inter?
est ing, and oven?in thoqulutest-way?de?
lightful. It is to mo impossible to read tho
modern stories of sout hern life, merely on I
account of their preposterous and pedantic
(polling, more cumbersome, even, than
Mr. Budynrd Kipling's, and, for anything
I know, quite its inaccurate. Hut in Ala?
bama you hoar with your ears t his drowsy,
backboneless dialect, which tho planters
have partly picked up from their negro
nurses, aud partly, I cannot but think, in?
herited from Last Anglian forefathers; so
that, from a philological point of view
alone, this is a drama not to bo missed.
"What strikes one llrst in the dialeot is
tho omission of tho letter'r,' characteris?
tic also of tho easy going Suffolk .peasant
of today. During tbo past- holidays my
nearest railway station was at Brumford,
one of the prettiest villages of East An?
glin, but the villagers, for tho most part,
called it ' ll'ahiuf ml,' a little explosion of
tho 'b' taking tlio place of tho missing 'r.'
And in Suffolk, as in Alabama, tlio native
never misplaces an 'h*?unless indeed ho
is at a boarding school and leaves out bis
'h's' of set- purpose, 'to bo genteel, like
teacher;' contrariwise, his initial 'h's' of?
ten become almost guttural in their vigor.
"Again, all tho Suffolk vowels are diph?
thongs, with tho double sound distinctly
to bu felt?in Alabama they are very much
like this?while all consonants that nro
not absolutely needed are apt- to follow the
fate of tbo submerged 'r.' So'l,' being
liquid, naturally runs away, and an odd
*n' Is never missed. Of course tho drowsy
slowness of tho southern man and tho
sharp melodic chant of tbeSuffolkor make
the general offoct of their speeches very
different, but many of the component
ports are the same."
KITE FLYING IN NEW YORK.
A Curious Old City Ordinance With Inex?
One of l bo oddest, oldest and most pecul?
iar of tho ancient ordinances of New
York which It Is the duty of the police de?
partment to observe und enforce is section
840 of article 34 of chapter 8 of tho re?
vised city ordinances. It relates to kites,
ordinary, plain, everyday kites, such as
are the delight of small boys when the
wind is high aud a constant source of an?
noyance to pedestrians on a gusty day.
"No person," says t his ordinance, ''shall
raise or fly any kite in any street, lane or
avenue, or in any public place in the city
of New York to the southward of Four?
teenth street, under a penalty of $5 for
No one has been found, either In official
life or nmong lay authorities, who can tell
why this peculiar exemption for kite lliors
was given to the residents above Four?
teenth street and not to those below. No?
body has undertaken to say why, for in?
stance, an adventurous youth may raise or
fly a paper kite in Fifteenth street, while
another adventurous youth In Thirteenth
street who docs the same thing is llablo
to summary arrest.
During the lost 18 or 20 years I ho sales
of kites in New York city have fallen off
more than one, half. Formerly the reve?
nues from kite sales was considerable in tho
small toy, stationery and candy stores.
Nowadays there appears tobe in tho rising
generation of tho male sex a greater par?
tiality for pointed shoes, canes and ciga?
rettes. About 20 years ago an offort was
mailt" to introduce into New York light,
dainty and attractive .Japanese paper
kites, and for a short time they were quite
popular, but the craze died out, and there
has been a return since to the cheap and
old fashioned kites which the down town
boys used to raise from the sidewalks or I
tho roof tops before the wisdom of New
York city fathers prescribed tbo penalty of
$5.?New Y'ork Sun.
