A statement recently published by the Prefecture of the Seine in Paris shows that Frenchmen like to work for the public. For 1,500 positions which became vacant,or are soon to be vacant, there is in round numbers 40,000 applications on record, an average of 31 candidates for each position. For the 12 places as under-clerks in the differ ent departments there are 3,126 applicants, and for 4 as messengers 3,314 or 828 for each vacancy, while for 165 as inspectors of the Octroi, or city tax, there were 2,773 candidates. In the schools supported by the Prefecture there is almost an equal dis proportion. For 43 vacancies among the male teachers 1,847 candidates presented themselves; 5,139 persons are on record as applicants for 54 vacancies among the female teachers, and for places as jani tors of schools 2,643 men and women are seeking. ' In this department, however, is found the solitary position 'which no one seems to want; it is that of instructor of manual labor in the primary department, for which no one has asked. In the lower branches of city work the demand for places is almost as great. In the street cleaning work there are 7,110 candidates for 750 appointments, while 750 persons have asked for what seems the undesirable position of workman in the sewers, where there are seventeen vacancies. Thus the Frenchman seeks the office in stead of waiting for the office to seek him. In this he is much like other men. THE NEW PANAMA CANAL PLAN. The Panama canal scheme once more sticks its head above water, or mud. The canal was to be completed in 1893 unless the Colombian government extended the time for six years. Lieutenant Wyse has obtained a new concession, and the plan now contemplates the use of the look sys tem in the canal, with plenty of time in which to complete it, which is estimated at about ten years. Already some $156, 000,000 has been expended in building the canal, but the commission of engineers sent out by the receiver of the old com pany has reported that at least $180,000,000 more would be required to finish it by the lock system. Toward this sum the old company had last March $3,200,000 in cash; an interest in the railroad; its build ings, tools, machinery and the like on the isthmus. There are also a number of un sold lottery bonds which were securer! by deposits with the Credit Foncier in Paris, which in March had a par value of $13, 000,000. To effect these assets there is a net indebtedness of at least $250,000,000, which must be assumed by any new com pany that succeds to the rights of the old one in the work already accomplished. The new company will have its hands full. The old company was not required to pay for the lands occupied by the canal, but the new one is, and must also pay the expensA of maintaining suoh military and police force as may be necessary to main tain order. In addition to these payments a bonus of $2,000,000 in five yearly in stalments and $1,000,000 in the preferred stock of the company must be given the Colombian government. It does not seem possible that with the experience of investors in the old company to face, and the progress and prospects of the Nicaragua canal scheme in view, the new company can inspire much faith, or se cure much money. Tims will tell. EDITORIAL NOTES. The latest news from Hartford does not indicate any solution of the problem. In fact it appears to be becoming more com plicated. English capitalists have invested in breweries in this country over $30,000,000. If they make this investment pay as well as investments in English breweries have paid it will be well enough. There are nineteen millionaires in the United States whose combined wealth amounts to about $140,000,000. It really seems as if there ought to be a better ap preciation of sound financial principles in a body like this. We hear a good deal about illiteracy in the South, but the other day a case came into the court at Northampton from.' Shutesbury, a town only a few miles from Amherst college, where, out of eight wit nesses, only three could write their names. They were not foreigners, either, but were native born and belonged to old American families. The plan arranged by Mr. Benjamin, a San Francisco colored man, for diverting the negro exodus from the southern States and securing it for California, has some sense in it. It is proposed to try the col ored people on the fruit-growing farms,be ginning with the San Joaquin valley, where the fruit-growers agwe to take them. It is thought the children can piok grapes and other fruit as well as they can pick cotton. Mrs. Mary McHenry Cox of Philadel phia expresses the opinion, based upon the results of a personal visit to the two large Sioux reservations in South Dakota, that the solution of the Indian problem would be greatly hastened in the right direction by having the government do away with the ration system and all annu ities of clothing, tools, etc., and pay the Indians in cash whatever 'money is due them. Mrs. Cox also urges the establish ment of a wagon and tinsmith factory at one of the Sioux agencies so that the boys can be employed. - s Some years ago the employers in certain iron and steel establishments' in Pennsyl vania imported a lot of ignorant and only half civilized Hungarians under the belief that they could be more easily controlled than Amerioan, English and Irian work men? They wanted men who would work for any mere pittance they might choom to give, and they got them. But now they find that these men are much, mots diffioult to manage than intelligent and reasonable workingmen and that -when they are dissatisfied they resort to violence much more readily than men who have lived for some time under American indus trial influence and legal institutions. The offioers of the German army do not always, or perhaps usually, treat those under them very well. Curt Abel, retired corporal in the, Wurtemberg contingent of the German army, has been condemned to fourteen days' arrest by a court martial in Freiberg. Abel's offence was that he ex posed the abuses practised by German officers on German privates and enumer ated in several sensational pamphlets cases in which soldiers had been beaten, burned with cigars, and cut with knives, by lieutenants in command of them. The ostensible season of his punishment, how ever, was that he had observed these abus es without reporting them. Abel's trial and sentenoe have aroused much indigna tion in all the German liberal dailies which consider his teeatment a matter of intimidation. The Deserted Farm.' A dust-worn traveler draws his rein At Buniet'a dreamy hour, ' With longing look o'er hill and plain Give, sway to memory's power. Long years nave passed since last be viewed His native heath and hill, And silence now with shadowy brood Makes nature wierdly still. There stands the homestead of his youth. And clustering 'round its door Come visions bright of love and truth From memors's endless store. He sees again his father's form Within the doorway stand. His thin locks, whitened by the storm. By passing breezes fanned; Mother and sisters, brothers, there Resume their wonted place, -And lost awhile in scenes so fair He sees each loving face. But wakened from his blissful dream. The past returns no more: Alone he stands while sunset's gleam Casts shadows on the door. Deserted now Its windows blank Stare at the passer-by, And weeds ana grasses stale and rank In wind-swept chaos lie. No more from pastures green, at night. To farm-yard come the kine. Nor homeward come with hearts so light The boys of "auld lang syne." No neighing steed from yonder stall Impatient calls his mate; The shades of night around him fall And all is desolate. He turns again with lingering look Survevs the old domain. He hears the murmuring of the brook Which onward Beeks the 3 plain; tide home. His old New England hillsid Amid the gathering eloem The wanderer turns once more to roam And leaves it to its doom. The sighing winds a requiem sing Amid the cheerless calm, A saddened memory still to bring The old "deserted farm." W. M. Rogers in Boston Transcript. - RETROSPECT OF OLD DIHK. To the Editor of the Journal and Codkibk: I have heard men say that horses had but one idea at a time; that they were de void of reasoning powers and that their memory was limited. The verdict is un just, be assured, for I am a horse myself, and who knows better than I what I know and what I can remember. My memory reaohes back to my infan tile colthood, when I was petted and ca ressed by the little daughters of my own er, who loved and respected me because I, like themselves, was aristocratic, for I am a thoroughbred horse with a pedigree un surpassed. Dear to my heart was this play-time of my life, and the retrospec tion is sweet even for a horse. Finally my master thought it time for aober action.; .acardinglypne day I was brought out to be broken, as they call it. I was shown a rope tied into a cunning knot, and while inspecting it with eyes and nose to gratify my curiosity, for horses have enriosity as well, I discovered that my confidence had Been misplaced, for by a dexterous movement of the train er the rope had taken the form of a halter, and was placed firmly around my head and nose, and I was a prisoner, which was very humiliating to me, who had always capered and roamed about at my own will, so I stood with apparent meekness, won dering what would come next. I had not long to wait, for being so submissive a subject, the next came quickly enough. A harness was brought and fitted upon me. I bore the insult with much dignity, for was I not descended from the famous Hambletonian stock, and should I disgrace my forefathers with unhorsely conduct, but when I found my freedom completely fettered by wagon as well as harness my blood began to rise, and I determined to have my revenge, so with a little dexter ous movement of my own I sent the would-be master over my head and leaving mm floundering in the dust and nlled with amazement and rage I started at a rapid gait down the broad, smooth road,' master of the situation for the time. Alas for a horse's revenge! I was caught and paid dearly for my retaliation, and was forced to become manageable, not to say docile. In dne time the blood in my veins began to show in my speed, and I bade adieu to private life, for I was sold to one of the princely lovers of good horses, and was well and carefully trained that I might fulfil the expectations of my ambitious owner. I made my first bow to the pub Ho at Fleetwood. Never shall I forget my feelings at that supreme moment. The pride and glory of my race swelled in my equine breast, and I resolved to prove my self a worthy scion of my descent and an honor to my lineage. My competitors were famous for speed, but that was only an incentive to my best efforts; so bracing myself with all my courage and the knowledge that I had acquired in my training, when the word was given to "go!" with a keen eye, senses alert and every muscle brought into play, I, under the euidance of a firm hand, dashed for ward, calned the lead and kept it to the end. Oh, proud moment! I can hear the applause of the crowds even now. Ah! memory is sweet. i or several years l remained at the zen ith of fame; then, alas, reverses came, as I suppose they must come to the most of us. My speed slackened, l leit it my sen before I heard it discussed by friends about me. I knew that old age was creep ing upon me. I was aware of the diner ence in the attentions shown me, and thus commenced my downfall. A was sold to a gentleman of moderate means, who, a It reclaung the nne points or a tnoroug. read, and not being able to gratify bis taste as he desired, took me as the best available substitute and at a price which was humiliating to my pride in the ex treme: however he was a (mod master. and to reward him I gathered up my re maining powers at times and made his heart glad by passing all other teams on the avenue. At Isst the time came when with all of my efforts I did not make even a passable appearanoe; I was pronounced "old enough to vote;" I limped fearfully and painfully; I grew to be but a shadow ox my former self; my ribs could be easily counted, and, dreadful to contemplate, the boys on the streets shouted derisively when I limped past them with a gait be tween a trot and a gallop, trying to keep up a semblance of my former speed. This was more than my good master could en dure, and ia a fit of desperation, after one of these mortifying experiences, he actu ally gave me away. So I found myself one day, woe is me' plodding along in front of a vender's wag on, apparently on a level with the low born, drudging about me. "How are the miirhtv fallen!" As I lie here to-night in my poor shed on a few straws my life all comes up be fore me, from careless liberty to proud fame. -then down to the level or the com mon herd, a horse among horses, and final ly to circumstanoes so bitterly galling to mv high spirit. My only wish is that, as I sleep, I may sink into utter oblivion, and never experience tne misery ana wretcnea- nees of anotner weary day. " ' , Ajtba AngnH, j CLAD.

Can you give me $200 in -new money!" inquired a young man at the teller's win dow in one of the big banks in New York a few days ago. "Mr. wants it for his wife." "Certainly," replied the teller, recogniz ing in the applicant the confidential clerk of one of the bank's heaviest depositors. The money was handed out in clean, crisp tens and fives that had never been in circu lation. After the young man had gone the teller remarked to the writer: "That new money fad is on the increase. Just as soon as a man begins to feel a little tony he gets tne notion mat no member of his family ought to handle the soiled and crumpled currency in general circulation. When the madame goes a-shopping she must have her purse filled with brand-new bills. Many persons explain their mania for new money on the theory that there is con tagion in the much handled bill.. - They seek to keep disease away from their fam ily circle by excluding, to as full an extent as possible, all money that has been in cir culation. They keep a supply of new bills of various denominations constantly on hand, and the ladies of the household feel that they are thus well protected again Rt contagion." Most of the new money is procured directly from the banks, but there are frequent individual applications at tne suo-treasury tor new bills and new com. When the sun-treasury has an abundance of small denomination bills on hand such applications are unhesitatingly cuuipiieu wuu. History of the Turkey. From the Youth's Companion. The turkey is a lineal descendant from the wild North American species, which was found in Mexico by the Spaniards at the time of the conquest, both wild and domesticated. Th. Spanish sailor, and soldiers introduced it into the West India islands nnder the name of pavon, or pea cock. From the West Indies the bird was taken to Spain, where it was called pavon de las Indias. The French called it dindon, a contraction of coq d'Inde. Evidently the i-aat indies were confounded with the West, for when this foul was introduced into Germany it was known as the "Cali cut hen." Major W. Boss Kine says that the bird was introduced into England abont 1530 to 1024, and that it received the name which it has since borne simply because it was then the custom to refer the origin of all strange and foreign articles to Turkey. It wonld not be at all surprising to find all the trade with Mediterranean ports at that time credited to that country. Headers will recall bow in the tune of the Crusades, a few centuries before, it had been the practice to speak of all Moham medan people as aaracens, while the fact was that that people were but a small tribe in Arabia. The instances are quite parallel. When tne fowl was orongnt to tuts country, its original home, it kept the name which had been given it in bugland, and more than that it gave this name to the undomesticated variety, which has since been known as the wild turkey. The circle was completed, and a bird that be longed exclusively to this continent, with out having gone away from its home at all, got credit for having been brought from the east, it is a good example ot tne con fusion of names likely to occur almost any where. SARAH BERNHARDT' SNAKE. What It I. an. What the Celebrated Aetre.aCall.lt. From the London Truth. The snake chosen by Sarah Bernhardt to serve as her executioner is of the "blind worm" species, and is known in France as an orvet. It is a pretty creature, which may be f onnd on the tops of old walls sun ning itself. The back is dark green, with metalic hues that are in certain lights irri descent. Sarah's snake is called by her Iris. Cleopatra being now a good deal before the public as a topic of theatrical interest, the Egyptian coins struck in her reign which are in the numismatio department of the National library are greatly run upon there. They show her when she was, re spectively, wife and queen regent. One sees her at all ages from her early teens to almost the close of her reign. Cleopa tra, on these coins and medela, is-far nearer i to Sarah Bernhardt than to Sirs. Langtry. She is almost spare in figure when young, and at all times lithe. The neck remained young to the last. Had she lived till 80 she might have looked a little like Prince Napoleon, the mouth asaiM:hin having a Mother Hubbard tendency to meet. The full, luscious lips, resembling those of a Somali woman's do not mitigate much the hardness of the physiognomy. It is a strange contenanoe and one easy to read. The forehead bnlges out at the eyebrows. Its prominence here gives it a singular Ir regularity, producing the effect almost of a smaller haad growing out of a larger one. Jova was represented by Greek sculptors with such a forehead, but on a more mas sive scale. The eye is greatly in shadow, and almost sinister, it having the expres sion of a snake's when a bird is to be charmed. The aoquiline curve of ths sow ia at once strong and delicate, and the nos tril is well open and finely curved. Taken with the lips, it gives an impre sion of a woman prone to sensual joya,cy n icaL fond of a cruel joke and contemptu ous. Her firmly molded and advancing chin shows volition. She was willful to the last degree, and not to be turned from any purpose. The hair is dreesed in the Greek manner and twisted up in a small knot on the nape of the neck. She is bad and bewitching. All the men she fascina ted saw through her, but were too intoxica ted by her charms to break away from her. She wore a royal diadem, which is repre sented on some of the coins. UXisccllawcows.
