WANTED A "STATKMBNT." Gentlemen of the iDqaest we mean the Waldron inquest a word with you. Why this apparent unwillingness to make the inquest thorough! Public money Is missing. "Discrepancies" have been discovered, and theie are indications that there has been some "conveying" (Shaks- perian for stealing). Mr. Waldron is sup posed to be tbe thief. He has gone away, and there are no signs that he means to come back. There is a show of activity. Little meetings are held, and some of the oratory for which New Haven is justly famed is uncorked. But nothing Is done. The proseontlng officers say they want evidence. The board of pnblio works cays it wants more evld ence for the use of the prosecuting officers, tbe newspapers and others. The "city fathers" don't say much of anything, and they don't even look wise. What is tbe matter t Why isn't the in vestigation immediately and actively pushed! Curious talk is heard about Ma sonic influenoe. Even more ourious talk is heard about danger that i f the inquiry is made thorough it may hit some marks not aimed at when it was begun. And some extra cynical ones say it ws never meant to be thoronh, tven so far as Wal dron is concerned. All snch talk amonnts to nothing. What amounts to something is the fact that the money affairs of the city of New Haven have been very carelessly dealt with by some of thoe whose duty it was to deal carefully with them. If Waldron has been diehuneet he has had abundant opportunity to rob thecity, nnwatohdd and unreatruiceJ. The interests of the people have not been properly guarded by those whose duty it was to guard them. It has been (he proud feeling and the proud boast of the people of New Haven that even if the best citizens were not conspicuous in the City Hall offices there was no steal ing. Now they are told that there has been stealing, and their right to know how much and what kind doesn't seem to be seriously thought of by those in authority. Tbisoarelessness, or maneuve ring, or what ever it is, is all wrong. The people have a most vital right to know how their money has been used. And their honest pnblio servants should show that they respect that right. The talk about economy in this matter is puerile. The people are willing to pay for a thor ough investigation of Waldron's accounts. They are also willing to pay for a thor ough investigation of any other city accounts that nobody has thought to look at for ten, twenty or thirty years. They would like to know where they stand. They feel unsettled by the Waldron busi ness, and th9y would like a "statement." Mayor Sargent, you are a business' man, and a mighty good one, too. Ton know what is needed in this matter. Will you not make your energy, your honesty and your true regard for the rights of the people felt in it, and see that we have a "statement." Tou know we are entitled to one, even if we have lost money and lost Waldron. each State into the olreumstanoM and claims of every person now drawing a pen sion. The honeBt veteran has nothing to fear from such sorutiny, while the fraudu lent claimant will be detected and the pub lic treasury relieved to an amount, I have reason to believe, far greater than has here tofore been suepeoted. Four years ago Joseph Matlvin, who has a farm near Stanwood, Washington, dis covered a peculiar head of grain in a Seld of barley. Since then he has been propa gating it, until now he has considerable land sown to this strange grain, which yields about 100 bushels to the acre. The grain is of a deep brown color, resembling scorohed wheat grain, and is similar to wheat in form. The bran or shell is thin and tough. The grain is not fit for mill ing purposes, and a brewer who examined it said that it was nseless for brewing pur poses. It makes, however, excellent feed for chickens and hogs. Complete anglers, if yon want fun go to New Zealand. On tbe east coast of the southern Island there are giant trout. From either one of five snow-fed rivers one may take 100 pounds of trout in a day with a minnow or thirty pounds with fly. Tbe trout average about four pounds in weight, but run as heavy as twenty-five pounds. An eight-pounder is about the heaviest fish one may expect to catch with a fly. These New Zealand trout were originally from English streams, and twen ty five years ago there were none there. The stocking with salmon in New Zealand was a failure. The emolts do not return from the sea; if they did they would be as large as tarpons. Be kind and thoughtful and you will feel better even if it doesn't make you rich. A lady at Ashford, England, has just re ceived a bequest of 150,000 from an old gentleman, an entire stranger, for a small act of kindneea rendered to him five years ago. He was in a crowd ontslde Bucking ham Palace watching the arrivals at one of the queen's'drawing rooms when he became faint and staggered helplessly. The crowd jeered him, shouting that he was drunk, and commenced to jostle him rudely. The lady saw he was ill and helped him through the crowd to a seat in a park olose by. He soon recovered, asked her name, and they parted, and she did not hear of him again until two weeks ago, when his solicitors informed her of his death and that he had bequeathed her the sum named. THIS FLEBT1NG SHOW. INTEREST AND PRINCIPLE. The decision of the Wieoonsin Supreme court in the treasury cases is interesting and timely. It applies the rule of common honesty to acts whioh have long been tol erated and not boldly questioned. It covers the interest transactions of State treasurers for the past twenty years, amounting to $725,000. If older cases are not protected by the statute of limitations $1,250,000 ultimately will be recovered for the State. In trying to defend themselves the treas urers took the gronnd that the treasurer became the owner of the money in the treasury, owing the State, as a personal debt secured by his bondsmen, the amount that from time to time came to his hands. As he paid State appropriations he received credit on the amount of his indebtedness to the State. When taxes were paid Increasing the treasury balances his debt to the State was increased. He had a right, there fore, to loan at interest or otherwise in vest the State money, at his own peril, of course, in case of loss. If he paid out across the treasury counter or paid over to his eucceesor the full face amount of money he had received from the State the full amount of his debt he was en titled to a receipt in full and to the (lis oharge of himself and his bondsmen from further liability. His profits and gains on the use of the funds were his own. The court decides squarely against this doctrine. The treasurer is a mere trustee. His bondsmen are held for the faithful dis charge of his trust. The increment of the State's money in hia custody belongs to the State. He is a mere custodian, not an owner of the publio money. He does not owe the amount to the State as a debt. His responsibility is merely for the safe keeping of the treasure, and its payment from time to time to the creditors of the State as required by law, or its delivery to his successor in office.

The apple made heaven a necessity, and the natives of Annam believe that heaven consists of an immense garden in which only two kinds of fruit grow, both apple shaped. It requires 1.000 years for one of these to ripen and 6,000 for the other. Every Ann smite is believed to be sure of heaven, and he who is able to eat one of these "apples" will dwell there as long as heaven lasts.

You are lying wide awake, possessing your mind in all its sanity, conscious of no physical disturbance, or of any exercise .of the imagination, when suddenly a strange face appears, distinct and expressive, with every line clearly cut. In an instant it is gone again, per haps to be followed by others, all equally strange, animated and fleeting. They are faces only, but they oome and go as if of their own power and purpose. To some, these phantoms appear as those who are known to them, but per haps the general experience is that they are entirely strange in features and expres sion. They are like the embodiment of a mood or a passion, are melancholy, severe, mocking, proud, or repellant, and seldom gentle or loving. Says a writer in tne "uon temporary tte- view": "Under my own eyelids I have seen many a face of this same awful fam ily all astir with animation. But the greater number of tbem are not of the too terrible kind. Some faces expressive of a great nobility and seienity appear, but I nave never seen among taem tne maBK or pity, of love, or any soft emotion. Grief tbe most despairing, scorn, cunning, pride, hate,inquiry, envionsor triumphant mock ery no human face that ever was seen, I fuel sure, displayed these emotionswith a comparable fullness and intensity. It is not tne onaracterlatio ot all, but it is ot some to an almost appalling extent; and if ttiaUe (William Blake, tne JSngllan artist and poet) did see these faces, either in day light or in darkness, he had more than his imagination to draw upon when he depicted the PasBionB." Are these the stuff of which dreamB are made, and are they lost, as dreams, be cause tbey oome too soon? Do they look upon us, and finding us not yet the cap tive of Sleep, are baffled in their purpose to affright us, and so vanish I For it is the experience of one that these faoes, no matter now intense tnelr expression, never alarm her. Nor do they ever come more than onoe. They never reappear in her dreamt; they may be "dream stuff," or the . "precursors of dreams," but they are not the dreams them selves, nor having looked in upon her in passing do they ever call again. When they snine out ot tne aarxness tor mat one wonderful instant, and melt away again, she feels that tho mood, savage or serene, tnat tney exprees is one wmcn sue has in no way excited, and with which she does not often at that moment sympathize. She looks upon them as messengers sent by Sleep to tell her that he is upon the way and coming fast, and it usually happens that Drowsiness follows the phantoms, and dear, good Sleep brings up the rear of the procession. Should these faces appear to the sick tbey might prove disturbing visitors, but when the one who holds the reception is well, and comfortable, and not mentally disquieted by the intense emotions of the uninvited guests, they are simply interest ing subjects of speculation Two faoes so Been will never be forgot ten. One came to a young girl, as upon her knees, by her bedside, she whispered her evening prayer. Through her closed lids struck the vision of a ohtld's face, so wonderfully beautiful, so ineffably sweet. that it might have been that of the Christ child himself. Had she been a devotee she misht have believed herself specially hon ored with a heavenly vision, or considered herself called to the rervice of the celestial vUitant. Being only matter of fact, everv-day soit of girl, she only wondered and admired. Other faces she has seen since, strong, dignified and noble, but never one so striking in its beanty. Tbe second face was eeen not long aero. It was that of a young man with a bronzed complexion and thick, crisp, brown hair a working man, evidently, -and one who was not in a gooa temper. A rouna- crowned soft felt hat with a rolling brim was jammed (tbe word jammed is need be cause no other is so suitable) upon the back: of his head ; his collar was loose at the throat. Tbere was a look of naif amuse ment in his eyes, as of one who, while in tensely exasperated, must still see a little of the ludlorous side ot tne situation. He shook his head so defiantly, and wrath, perplexity and struggling mlrthtulneas, scowl ana laugnter wrinkles, were so strongly marked upon hia face that tbe looker on was obliged to utter soft little laugh. Then he vanished. But how did. he get there, and why did he come, and where did he go? And whv should wrathful blacksmiths, melan choly philosophers, and mocking cynics appear, when ana wnerever they choose. to people to whom they have never been introduced and who have no desire to make their acquaintance! Are they, per haps, a method of self-revealment our own possibilities of mocd, passion, feeling made visible to the inward eves, as w lie wrapped in darkness and the languor of approaculng reeii PHOTOGRAPH FRAMES. A pair of photograph frames will be pretty a gift as jou can now begin to make for next Christmas. Or, having made them, yon need not wait so long to find m delightful recipient. Any one who see them will be willing to take them off your hands at on Two sets ft beveled boards with oval or square openings for the photographs can be procured at a frame-maker's. The cov ering is chamois akin dyed a pale green. The boards are neatly covered with the chamois, and strips of ohamois or ribbon, glued to each board, serve to connect them to the stand in screen fashion, or, in newer style, to hang one above the other. The backs are of cardboard, covered, if the maker prefers, and firmly glued to the sides of the fronts, with the top and bot tom left free for the Insertion of the pict ures. The fronts of such frames are al ways the better for a thin layer of cotton wadding under the outer covering. Now for the very effective and dainty ornamentation, which ia nothing more than the old fashioned "spatter -work" revived. "Spltzer-arbelt," they call It now-a-days, and it ia done in colore, in stead of in black ink. When the outside of the frame Is com pleted, arrange upon the ohamois the most delicate ferns and grasses that can be pro cured. Arrange them gracefully and pin theas firmly down, thrusting the point of the pin straight down into the board. The spattering is done with olive dye paint of not too deep a tone. A pair of loose gloves are recommended to the worker at this stage of the proceedings, as stains upon the hands will be hard to remove. Now dip a toothbrush lightly in the dye and pass It gently back and fcrth over the teeth of a fine comb until the spray is spattered all over the frame, a delicate operation and one that requires little practice. Give a little extra spraying around the ferns in order to get a deeper shading, but keep the edges of the frame light. When the paint is per fectly dry, carefully remove the pins and lift the ferns and grasses. Their delicate outlines will be found reproduced in ten der green upon a background of deeper tints. Attaoh an olive satin ribbon to the upper edge by which to suspend the frame, insert the photographs, and the pretty or nament is complete. AT NIGHT TllfS.

Anne Reeve Aldrics. sweet lavender What a clean, wholesome, suggestive odor is that of the dull purple, insignifi cant flower of the lavender! It brings to mind sunny, old fashioned gardens, where the beautiful and the useful grow lovingly together, and bees and robins riot all day as In an exhaustless treasnre-house. There is a hint of good housewifery, too, about the delloately' pervasive aroma. Sub stantial matrons, prond of their home weal tb; ample linen olosets, and great ohests in whioh, fold upon fold, lies abun dant store of house linen, snowy and smooth; tempting and hospitable beds, so oool and white, with ruffled pillow slips and sheets in the primmeBt creases, all these delightful things, and more, are borne in upon the memory on the breath of the homely little lavender blossom. It's very name speaks of cleanliness. From the Latin "lavare" we have a num ber of words, all bearing upon the washing or bathing process. The laundress, long ago, was a lavender, as witness Chauoer: "Envye ys lavendere of the court alway," and It is only a few years einoe lavender ing was nsed as a synonym of washing or laundrying. "To lay in lavender," means to pat away delicately and carefully, for safe and sweet keeping. The pretty fashion of placing bags of lavender in chests and drawers of bed-linen obtains to day in a marked degree among American housewives. We are told, how ever, that our American lavender is not so fragrant, or its scent so lasting as the plan1, in whioh the English matron takes delight. We mnst therefore buy the im ported produot, if we would have that stimulating odor, which is considered the "only genuine." However that may be, as pretty a pres ent as you can make your friend, upon tho occasion of her going to housekeeping, is a set of half a dosm lavender bags. White silk, or white linen, with lavender stitch ery, are the proper thing. One remarka bly pretty set was seen recently. Square doylies had been need for the bags, the small and delicate designs being outlined with lavender floss. These doylies were fringed, with a row of hemstitching above, more threads than usual being drawn for the stitching. The layers of wadding with the lavender blossoms between, were placed between two of them, which were then caught together with the narrowest of lavender ribbon, woven in and out of the loose threads and fastened at each cor ner in a tiny bow-knot.

And why should she when there are lota of ways of submitting to the Empire and showing her little waist too! It is only necessary to effeot a fall of something from the bust line down to the waist or below. This fall may be the drees itself, or it may be merely part of the trimming of the dress. Your gown may be made as conventionally as you Ilka and have a very tight waistline. Then you can hang a sort of curtain of lace a. 1 WMf from the bust line, or make a fringe effect of narrow ribbon that hangs from a line even with Tinder the arms to the waistline, or much farther, as you like. This idea can be modified in a dozen ways, and any one will give tbe desired Empire cnarao tenstlo to tne areas, raxe tne zouave jacket notion; it only makes a small waist seem smaller, iet tne zouave oe gaiuoreu over the bust as in the picture, and be fastened just in front. Then on the lower edo-e of it nut a handsome fringe of Irrl descent beading and jewels that shall hang to the waist and irregularly below it Through its glimmer the tiny round of the rest of the bodice will seem au tne more slender, and yet yon can feel comfortable in the faot that your dress is according to the mode. Bit? soft sleeves in puns at tne shoulder and a plain skirt complete the dress shown, and, if your bead work is very fine, let a hand of it edge the Zouave all around, ana wear a riDoon womto wuu jewels to match, as a neoklace.

London, Jan. 2. To the Editor of the journal and Coobi sa: I found him all alone at a table in a snug little retanrant of shadowy Mercery Lane at ancient Csnb-tbury. He was a mite cf a thing, but an old yonog lad, seemingly already broken by all the sor rows of desolate old age. His attire was rich, bat his back was humped, his legs were crooked and spindled, his cheeks were sunken and his eyes were crossed and queer. Tears were alk-ntly trickling own his face. I could not eat my food until I had asked him If he was in tronble. 'Ob, air," he said iu the sweetest tones ever heard from a boj's Hps, and as if completely overcome by his situation and unexpected human sympathy, ' I wish I was dead and burled:'' Pressing him for further explanation, with the hope of al laying hia childish troubles, he continued a soared, hunted way: "I am Lord , thy tell me. But I never saw my father. My mother is a beautiful lady, but they only let me see her once a year; and then she cries and I ory, and its dread ful when she goes away." "May be you saw nurse D'gby? Nurse Digby minds me, and they make me live with her, and say she must keep me until am a great lord. But she drinks and beats me. She's drinking to-day, air; and I'm snre she'il almost kill me. Oh, sir, da take me to America, and lot me be plain and rough and happy like all the boys I seel There she is, sltl Please, please don't tell her, sir!" As he plteoualy spoke a huge mountain of flesh slid down a stairway and reeled into the room. Ii was nurse Digby. Her dxess was disheveled, her wrapping were nrwide down, her hat. a tossing sea of feathers and flowers, was very much awry, She was more than "oheery " She bad passed the quarrelsome sUge of dilnk Into lha resion of bland beatitude. In a moment we fortunately got the beet of her native suspicion and cunning; she em braced me as a reward for suppositious friendliness; and it was somehow made clear that little milord had been brought down from London, ostensibly for a "hoot ing" and to visit the cathedral, but in reality tnat nurse Digoy mignt revei, via such as ehe, in the brave brews of fair, hon-laden Kent.

Then nurse Digby fell In a mass nnon her charge: the little no bleman shrieked with fright and pain; and his tormentor rolled into s comfortable ball beneath the table. Casting all thought of my own visit to the cathedral aside, I at once summoned a carriage: got the deformed boy and nurse DIgbv into It: drove tnrougu tne quaint old city up the winding hill to the railway station; and never left tne m-assortea pair until I hsd seen them safely In the carriage of a London-bound train. But I can never forget that poor lad's plead ings that I should rescue him from the living death of his hopeless environment, and his white, desperate face, as he crouohed In hia seat like a scourged soul, still appealing while watching the human animal, his endless tormentor, as she lay hi temporary harmlessneas upon the com partment floor. "Oh, sir, I shall remember yon if I live to be a great lord!" were his last words that I heard as tbe train rolled away. The hopeless tragedy it all revealed has never left my heart; and all that sunny after noon in old Canterbury town the brasses and effigies of the great cathedral could only be half discerned through tbe mists of ever-gathering tears. hard one.

There ia a glib tongued raven, the pride of a certain otherwise delightful, old-fashioned inn bseide Covent Garden, London, much frequented by Americans, gainst which many of ns who have suffered from its ill-timed speculations and malediction posaeea feelings far from a benign and friendly character. The morning after my first arrival at this hostelry I wished to take an early train for Brighton; and as no one, save costsrmongera and market porters, is astir in London before eight or nine o'clock, I was compelled to awaken and get away without the pleaant formality of being called. Anxious to not miss my train, I hastily descended to the o nice floor. Here I found the street door ajar, but the din ing room, ihorfiee, the reading room and apparently all the minor offices were still closed and dark, and no servant whatever oould then be summoned by call of voice or bell. The idea of leaving the hotel without re porting the fact worried me. I began tip toeing about in quest of somebody. This of itself impelled a feeling of guilt and dread. I was lat, but it oocured to me that I must take along my umbrella. It stood with others in the great hallway leading to tbe dining-room. I simehow felt like a criminal when approaching that umbrella stand. I fairly trembled lest some suddenly appealing employe should pounce upon me whan la tbe act of ab stracting my own umbrella. Soaroely bad I got a firm hold of the handle when this fairly ehrieked demand rang out beside me: "Who sre you! who are voc! who are YOU!"

Explanations followed; I missed my train: but was formerly intro duced to the gleefully malignant raven whose station was in the hallway, where at night its catce was covered with some travelers bandy rug. That is a strange principle of human nat ure which nods mitigation of our own humiliation in the embarrassment of oth ers: but the same evening I almost forgave the vicious bird for selecting as another victim one of those particularly aggrava ting American females who prance and scold about tbe world as professional "agi tators." Tne lady was big and broad and pompons a familiar figure, I am told, in tbe New England etatos. Wherever she moved she proceeded In a series of stately pauses and snorto, as if t: say: "I par.ee that yon may havd opportunity to fully r.-Bliz9 whu I am!" She was pasoing in this manner through the hallway to the dining-room. The ra ven was evidently impressed and curious He promptly snouted, almost in ner ears: who are yon! who are voui who are YOTI" The agitator was agitated. Trembling from rage she wheeled and shouted back to the office forca and tittering guests: "Who a. n I! Bice me, everybody nut eld4 of this (!wrjoefnl country knows who I am! Tliii is an outrage. I shall see Mlnifter Lincoln about it! ' Then ahe majestically snort! herself in to dinner. An irresistible but repressed outburst of laughter followed the contretemps.
