An Improvident Young Man Who Will Al

"Now he was brought homo dead,
and J was expected to give him as littlo

his relation to tho family.
"I need not go into that part of the

Stories of Sir Frank Locltwood.
Of his early dramatic days the late
Sir Frank Lockwood once said: "I
made my first appearance ou nuy stage
in tho old theater at Bath. This theater
was the cradle of many a great reputa
tion, as surely as it was the coffin of
mino. I was cast for the part of a serv
antone of those faithful creatures to
whom wages aro not so much au object
as a comfortable home. Through five
acts I tracked a mysterious child, until
that mysterious child must have been
heartily sick of me. It was an Irish
part, and for its delineation I had
studied and thought I had acquired a
real brogue, racy of the Emerald Isle.
'We have been wondering,' subsequent
ly said the manager, 'what dialect you
have been playing the part in. Somo
say it is Scotch, some say it is Irish,
but the gasman, who tells my ho has
often played the part, says it is Zumer
Some time ago Sir Frank received an
invitation to stay at a friend's country
house in a remote district. But he
tliotifilit of taking a short holiday, and
as tho invitation mentioned lio length of
stay ho telegrnphed, "May 1 stay six
days?" The message was duly delivered
to his friend, who had to pay 6 shillings
to the messenger, and his reply was,
"Yes, of courso, but don't telegraph."
Here was an excellent opportunity for a
joke, and Sir Frank was not slow to
seize it. Ah evening was fulling another
mounted messenger arrived at the coun
try house and delivering a telegram de
manded a further 8 shillings. The tele
gram ran, "Why not? Lockwood."

A DUEL IN THE SNOW.
the Incident Upon Which Was Founded
Geroine's Ueautiful Picture.
Every one has soen the engraving of
Geromo's beautiful but sadly eiroetivo
picture, "A Duel In tho Snow."
Through tho mist of early moruiug one
antagonist is lying on his back ou the
sward, while his adversary, leaning
on a friend's arm, is slowly walking
away from tho scene of tho encountor.
Both are wearing the niasquorading cos
tume of a Pierrot. In a thicket a car
riage waits to drive off with the suc
There is every reason to boliovo, from
recently disclosed information by M.
Alfred Darimou, that in portraying on
canvas that impressive episodo tho
artist was not influenced by solely im
aginative caprice, but that he has repro
duced a scene in real life.
Tho facts are as follows: The duelists
were M. Julos Brame, a foit-.ur minis
tor of public instruction under tho sec
ond empire, and M. D. D., a well
known journalist on the staff of one of
the most influential newspapers in the
north of France. When the duel occur
red, both were studying for tho bar.
One Shrovo Tuesday they, in company
with friends, had ropaired to a restau
rant on the Boulevard with a view of
enjoying a good diimer and afterward
of goiug to the masquerado ball at the
Opera. They all agreed to go as Pier
rots. As they all wore masks somo one
suggested that they should adopt some
distinctive sign by which they could
recognize one another in the crowd. D.
D. suggested that they should piu a la
bel bearing a number to their backs.
Tho idwiwas unanimously adoptod, and
D. D. prepared tho labels accordingly.
While so doing a diabolical idea came
into his bead. It was carnival time.
Why should ho not havo his littlo joke?
When it was Jules Brame's turn to
have a ticket pinned to his back, his
friend D. D. had written in large letters
beneath tho number, "I am Jules
Brame." One can easily imagine what
was the result. No sooner had Brame
set foot in the main passage to tho pre
miere galerie than he was followed by a
lady wearing a mask, who, on hia pre
paring to enter a private box, cried out,
"I wish you success, Jules Brame."
Later on, ou re-entering tho passage, he
was surrounded by a group of masquer
aders, who with one voice shouted out,
"Good day, my dear Brame." That
proved to him that ho was known to
every one, although ho was puzzled to
understand how it could bo.
Passing in front of a box opener, the
girl burst out laughing. He inquired
angrily what sho was laughing at.
"Why," she replied, "lam laughing
at tho funny idea which led you to piu
a label ou your back with your name
on it." And, suiting tho action to tho
word, sho unpiunod the label and hand
ed it to him.
Jules Brame considered tho joko not
only in bad tasto, but insulting. He
sought out his comrade, and, finding
him in the saloon, ho reproached him
angrily in the hearing of the crowd, in
sisting that he should apologize openly
then and there. D. D., resenting his
friend's attitudo toward him, declined
to apologize. A duel therefore, iu ac
cordance with French habits and cus
toms, was inevitable. Seconds were at
once chosen. Short swords were pro
cured, and in their Pierrot costumes the
antagonists started for the Bois de
Boulogne. Fortunately the duel did not
end fatally, as seems to bo tho case in
Gerome's picturo, for, although Brame
ran his. sword right through D. D. 's
body, no vital organ was touched. Ho
recovered very quickly, and the two an
tagonists became fast friends again.
AMERICAN LUMBER SUPPLY.
The Planting of Forests Lkely to Be an
Looking not very far into tho future,
it seems that tho planting of American
forests will become a productive indus
try. Preservation of old forests, with
their masses of dry underbrush and fire
inviting collections of dry leaves, may
be advisable for some reasons. These
Immense niassus of firewood undoubted
ly tend to collect mow; which, Vy its
gradual melting, furnishes a supply to
the water reservoirs beneath tho surface
of the ground. Snow thaws less quickly
under tho shade of trees than in the
bright sunlight. Less water, therefore,
runs to supply floods and freshets than
when the snow is made to pass away
gradually. But this question does not
affect the solid timber interests.
In old forests, where there is a strug
gle for lifo among the trees by reason
of their growing so thickly together,
the result is the necessity of waiting
many years before the trees will reach
a size to make them desirable for tim
ber purposes. Where trees have room to
grow and are properly cared for most
kinds of American trees will furnish
useful timber in 20 or 80 years, and for
many other purposes they can be em
ployed even younger. It takes well on
to a century for the struggling trees in
a dense wood to have any marketable
value. . .
While good timber is becoming grad
ually scarcer on account of our annual
forest fires, rising from the conditions
already stated, the demand is increasing,
and, what is more remarkable, Europe
is already calling on America for a sup
ply of lumber. American oak especially
is in great demand in tho old world,
while our black walnut is closely fol
lowing in its wake. Our lighter woods
also such as tho tulip tree and poplar
are coming into great demand there
for packing boxes and cases where light
weight is a great object. Those who are
interested iu forestry in our country
should take tip the matter of encourage
ment of forest planting. It will soon be
a greater question than forest preserva
tion. Mcchan's Monthly.
It was anciently a custom to carry a
box from door to door for tho collection
of little presents at Christmas. In an
old work entitled "The Athenian Ora
cle" it is stated that formerly it was a
custom to offer mass for the safety of
all ships that went on long voyages, to
each of which a little box was affixed,
under the custody of the priest, into
which the sailors put money or other
valuables iu order to secure the prayers
of the church. At Christmas these boxes
were opened and were theuce called
"Christmas boxes. " In order that no
person should omit these presents the
root were encouraged to beg "box uion
y" of their richer neighbors to enablo
them to add to the priest's perquisites.
Advantage of the Hudson to New Vork.
"Reasoning Out a Metropolis" is the
title of an articlo ou the- Greater Now
York written by Ernest Iugersoll for St
Nicholas, In speukin,'? of tho growth of
cities during the early part of the ecu
tury Mr. Iugersoll says:
How could Now York doublo its pop
ulation in 15 years ond beat its great
rival Philadelphia when the latter was
surrounded by a far wider belt of rich
farms and populous towns?
It was due primarily to the fact that
Robert Fulton brought here his steam
boat and that New York men knew how
to take advantage of the invention.
Philadelphia also had the steumboat,
you will reply. Yes, but she did not
have the Hudson river.
The Hudson had from the first been
an advantage to New York because it
afforded a highway for 150 miles inland
and thus had greatly aided in the early
settlement of the interior of the state
and of western New England. By the
improvement of the steamboat river
travel at once became so cheap and
speedy that the country dealers and tho
farmers themselves could (,"3 straight
down to New York to buy goods or do
their shopping at first hand. This
brought a great deal of new business,
both wholesale and retail, to New York,
some of which was taken away from its
Moreover, the steamboats and tow
boats .lessened tho cost of bringing
building materials, grain, hay, meat
and all the country grown food found
in city markets and thereforo lessened
the expense and increased tho comfort
of living and working here.
Wouldn't Re "Half Hanged."
It was once the custom in several
southern states, when a man under sen
tence of the law was hanged and thro3
times in succession broke the rope and
fell to the earth before the sentence
could be carried out, to liberate him
and thereafter-to account him iunoeeut
of the crime of which he was convicted.
An old darky past the threescore and
ten years generally allotted to man hud
a neighbor whom he considered a "hoo
doo," a "Jonah." One day ho went
over to his neighbor's house and killed
bim with a shotgun. He was tried, con
victed and sentenced to death. The day
of the execution arrived, and a great
crowd assembled to see the old man
hanged. He was a very heavy man, and
when tho noose had been placed around
his neck and the barrel drawn from un
der him his weight broke the rope and
he fell to the ground.
The second time and tho third time
the rope broke, and then his triends de
mauded that he be released. The sheriff
turued him over to his friends, who
made a great show of weleomo. But he
broke away from them, and, hurrying
to the sheriff, who was about to leave
the scene, he astounded him with:
"Hold on, Massa Sheriff 1 Hold on 1 Put
that rope around this old nigger s neck
again. D'ye think I'm poiii to have all
de folks poiutiu me out as a half hueg
man: No, sah. Try it iigaiu! Try it

Mr. and Mrs. Cotterell never had any
children of their own, but they adopted
and educated several orphans and start
ed them in lifo. Uncle Matthew, as all
who knew him loved to call him, had a
religion of his own. It was to do good,
and ho was always looking for opportu
nities for practicing his religion. Char
itable to ft fault, ho often gave to tho
undeserving, but he said it was because
ho did not care to risk refusing one who
might be worthy.
"I'll spend what 1 havo," said Mr.
Cotterell, "and that will prevent any

suggestion ho acted, and the result was
that ho spent tho declining years of his

The Applied Art. '
All sorts of breezes, more or less fit
ful, ruffle tho surface of art, but the
current is once more setting with in
rrcasinu steadiness and strength toward
tho point where art becomes the hand
maid that ministers to the practical
needs of men. ' Painters and sculptorn
are working with the architects not
only in beautifying buildings, but in
giving an artistic perfection to the fur
cishiugs and utensils, Stained glass,
I tosaiu, wall papers and fabrics, furni
ture, posters, book and magazine illus
trations are only some of the numerous
oveuues of activity which the move
mi nt opens up to tho artist. It is quite
within recent years that it has reached
our shores, but now that it is come its
continuance and its spread are assured,
for it appeals exactly to the democratic
conditions of tho national life. It brings
the masses in touch with art and iu the
way most likely to influence them by
Museums do much to refine and culti
vate the thousands who visit them, but
their usefulness would be small com
pared with a diffusion of art among all
the things of everyday life. That is the
goal to which the movement in favor of
the "applied arts" is directed, and un
deniably none could be nobler. No
doubt it is a long way off, but that is
no reason for despairing of the possibil
ity of reaching it. Nor is the material
character of American life a bar to it.
The Athenians of Pericles' time, the
Italians of tho renaissance and the
Kethcrlsuders were material enough and
fully as bent on matters merely mercen
ary, and yet they surrounded themselves
with the evidences, in small things as
well as bia, of taste and refinement.
Thero is no incompatibility between
materialism and art, especially when at
the back of Loth is a strong pride in
citizenship. A largo share of the credit
for what has already been accomplished
is duo to tho architects. On them de
volves the execution of the biggest evi
dences of improved taste, and they have
it in their power to combine with their
own work that of the painters and
sculptors. Harper's Weekly.
