SOME FRENCH PATRIOTS.
This isn't the only country where office-
seekers are numerous. 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.
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.

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
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

At Isst the time came when with all of
my efforts I did not make even a passable

the boys on the streets shouted derisively
when I limped past them with a gait be

The money was handed out in clean, crisp

teller remarked to the writer: "That new

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
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
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

been the practice to speak of all Moham

was that that people were but a small

When tne fowl was orongnt to tuts
country, its original home, it kept the

and more than that it gave this name to
the undomesticated variety, which has

circle was completed, and a bird that be

SARAH BERNHARDT' SNAKE.
What It I. an. What the Celebrated
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
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.
