FABLES AND ESSAYS.?By John Bryan, of
Ohio; 250 pages; from tbe preBS of the Arts aud
Lettrcs Company, 874 Broadway, New York.
Issued November 20.
We have reoelved through the courtesy
of Miss Elizabeth B. Borst, of Luray.
Va., a cjpy of "Fables and Essays," an
extremely interesting and cleverly writ?
ten book. The fables are very enticing
and each one has a strong moral em?
bodied in It, many of them being par?
ticularly applicable to tbe age in which
we live. "The Rat and the Rabbits"
will be highly appreciated by those who
deprecate the growing tendency of a
certain class to ape our English cousins.
Another gem is "And This Is
Love." The alleged conflict between
the Protestants and the Roman Catholioa
is also sarcastically portrayed in a few
of the f ablas. Twenty-five pages of the
book contain poems of a rather high or?
der of merit, the sentiment of love pre?
ponderating. Not the least interesting
feature of tbe book is "Boy Talk,"which
contains some very good advice. Upon
the whole, the book will repay anyone
who will purchase. It can be had at all

Cuest visited that city in October, 1824.
These monthly articles in The Histor?

feature of this magazine's enterprise
entirely its own. Hon. W. H. Bailey,

is represented by a pretty story of an
outing in Norway, which ends in court?
ship in London. There are also dainty
sketches from the Franch of Catulle
Mendos and others with suitable illus?
trations, and there is a timely story of
life in Constantinople by Adelaide
Keen. In a different vein is Huldah
derrick's powerful tale of lifo in a cot?
ton factory and stirring scones among
the moonshiners. In addition to those
mentioned the names of Harry Pain, J.
M. Barrie and Balzac also appear In tho
table of contents of this attractive

Deafness Cannot bo Cured
By local Replications, as tboy cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way tocure deafness,
and that 1b by tho constitutional reme?
dies. Deafness is caused by an In?
flamed condition of tho mucous lining of
the Euatachlan Tube. When this tube
is inflamed you have a rumbling sound
or imperfect hearing, and when it is en?
tirely closed, deafness is tho result, and
unlesB the Inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to Its normal
condition, bearing will be destroyed for?
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surface.

The Metallic Splendor of the Diplomatie
Corps on New Year'a Morning.
Washington's most picturesque fea?
ture, tho diplomatic corps, never gots in?
to action until tho reception at the
White House on New Year's day, al?
though the individual members will bo
seen out in society for a month or moro
beforo the recognized social season. At
tho Now Year's reception, however, tho
diplomats como out strong, and the pro?
cession of tho members of tho foreign
legations r.nd embassies from tho White
Honso to the home or hotel of tho secre?
tary of state, where tho diplomatic
breakfast is served, is ono of tho gala
sights of tho year. Many of tho popula?
tion of Washington stay tip all night in
order to get a place on tho White House
fence where they may seethe procession
pass as soon as it has been received and
properly attended to by tho president.
After this reception tho entire organi?
zation lines np and puts out on foot for
tho homo of the secretary of stato. As
they pass from tho White Honso grounds
in their glittering raiment they are tho
showiest things in Washington and
worth coming miles to see. Tho lowli?

and spades to tho most showily dressed

bullion strung all over them, while tho
aigrots, plumes, epaulets, cords, tassols

stock a millinery storo. Such is tho ef?

LOSS Of THE PRESIDENT.
Strange Story of the Scuttling of a Great
Steamship by Pirates.
What n Btrange story is that com
inunicatod by tho Duko of Nowcastlo to
Tho Globo concerning tho loss of tho
President! Ho says that a trustworthy
informant in tho United States assured
him that a sailor, dying in an American
port, had confessed to having formed
ono of tho crow of a pirate vossol which
captured tho great steamship. "Every
soul on board was inndo to walk tho
plank, and tho ship was scuttled."
Tho story seems incredibly, yet it may
bo true, aud tho possibility of it gives
ono quito a shock. It is 50 years ago
and moro siuco tho President disappear?
ed from human sight, without, I be?
lieve, loaving a traoo. Tho loss of uo
othor vessel?for it was tho first of tho
great passenger ships to go?has caused
so great an excitement. How those at
homo clung to hopo, somo of them for
years?for tho notion of tho crow being
wrecked ou somo out of tho way island
was eagerl3" adopted?and how many a
heart was broken by tho intolerable
suspenso! At last it was generally con?
cluded that tho ship had collided with
an icoborg and founderod. And rjfbw
comes this terrible story, which, it is
fortunato, was not conceived of when
it would havo had tho power to make
thoso at homo moro miserable.
It is not to bo forgotten, however,
that moro than ono story has been re?
cently writtou upon this subject?the
capture and scuttling of a passenger
Btoauicr?and it seems moro likoly
that they havo suggested tho idea being
adaptod to tho loss of tho President than
that a solitary pirato Bhonld havo ro
vcalod such a long kopt secret of tho
Mystified by nn Abbreviation.
Among tho stories told about the ex?
periences of police tolegraph operators
by tho attaches of tho electrical bureau
is ono which relates to an ox-spooial
officer, who is now a regular operator
at a substation up town. Whilo acting
as "sub" in a West Philadelphia dis?
trict ho received a call from tho cen?
tral, which ho promptly wroto on his
slato as ho rocoived it. At tho closo of
tho messago ho found that it read:
"Send wagon to Phil. Ahosp. and learn
condition of Hon. Coop." Ho was com?
pletely stalled. Ho could not imagiuo
who Phil. Ahosp was, nor where ho was
to bo found, nor what particular hen
??coop tho central was interested in. Ho
felt that thcro was a mistako somc
whero, but was satisfied that it must be
at the other end of tho wire. As tho
hour was near rclioving timo, ho decid?
ed to wait and consult his relief beforo
sending tho wagon on a wild gooso
chaso or asking tho central to repeat.
On tho arrival of- his rcliof ho was in?
formed that tho operator who had sent
tho messago generally abbreviated his
messages, and probably tho ono received
would read: "Send wagon to Philadel?
phia hospital and learn condition of
Henry Cooper. " This proved to be tho
proper solution.?Philadelphia Record.
Poor Woodcock?Poor Soul I
Somo years ago a woodcock, tired and
weary with his long journey, fell ex?
hausted down from midair right into
tho middlo of London. Nearly all birds
migimto at night, so it was dark, as,
half stunned, ho found himself lying in
Albcmarlo street. A woodcock's first im?
pulse is always to hide himself, to steal
under something, to crouch down. In
naturo wild ho would chooso somo
bracken or somo low shrub. Holly ho
particularly loves, and there ho would
nestlo down and dozo tho hours away,
but here, poor bird, in rural Piccadilly,
ho could lind nono of those, and so ho
finally nestled up to a lamppost, and,
stunned and stupefied, ho foil asleop
and was so found by tho early milkman
on tho next day.?Critic

was almost round and showed by its
width at tho oars that combativouoss of
