The French Scare.
The tales that come from France of a dyn
amite league are evidently of a sensational
character and should be received with great
caution. It is much to be doubted if a
league of the nature exists, and the suspic
ion is not unreasonable that the reports are
devices of a government, alarmed by the
growing strength of the opposition, to fright
en the conservative classes into its support
by holding up to them the spectre of anarchy
The student of history is constantly remind
ed, as he reads the Paris cablegrams, of the
Rye House plot, the Popish plot, and other
fabrications of English polititiaus in the
seventeenth century.
If France were not a slumbering voicauo,
rattle-brained socialistic demonstrations,
such as have occurred within the past week,
would not be noticed. But the fact is there
is quite general suspicion that a new revolu
tion will occur sooner or later, and every
straw is watched with eager interest by the
well informed, who are naturally anxious to
learn from what quarter the wind is coming.
In itself the outbreak against religious sym
bols at Montceau les-Miues is sca.cely more
noteworthy than a “sandlots” demonstration
in San Francisco; as distinct events, the tur
bul-nt threats of agitators at Paris and
Lyons are more ridiculous than Fenian va
porings in New York or Chicago. But, put
ting this ajjd that tog-ther, the outlook in
France is less peaceful than might be wished.
At the International Exhibition which is
to be held in Amsterdam next year, it is
probable that American industries will be
largely represented, as the United States
Agent of the Exhibition, Mr. S. A. Wheel
right, whose office is at No. 2. WTall street,
New York, is making a special effort in that
direction. In a recently issued circular he
calls attention t* the fact that Amsterdam
is one of the richest capital centres in Eu
rope, containing a large amount of capital
which is always seeking employment in new
fields where it can be judiciously and profi
tably invested in sound enterprises. The
Dutch people are essentially and proverbial
ly a commercial and industrial race, and if
less alert than some nations iu adopting
new usages they are eminently practical,
and having once discovered the merits i f
new inventions or improvements they adopt
them readily and invest their capital freely
where they find a profitable use for it. For
those and other reasons Mr. Wheelwright
thinks that the exhibiiiou will prove of
great benefit to American manufacturers,
and ail applications for space should be sent
te his address as given above.
Lyman Bridges, whom the American
Architect vouches tor as a “civil engineer
of reputation,” proposes to cure the Misiss
ippi floods by enlarging the Atchafalaya riv
er outlet, which taps the Red river and com
municates thence with the Mississippi. This
is precisely the cure which Captain Condon,
a plain river boatman, has proposed, but t o
one would listen to him. The route has
been uavigated throughout its length, and
as the gulf eau be reached by it over a
course one-half as long as that by v, ay of
New Orleans, it may work important cbau
g s in commerce, as well as the drainage of
the valley. If the main current of the Mis
Isdtsippi were to swing from the present
beitothe Atchafalaya, leaving New Or
leans stranded, the change would be no
more remarkable than that which shifted
the mouth of the Hoang-IIo 300 miles, thir
ty years ago, almost over night.
Loud Dufferin’s selection to carry on the
complicated diplomacy involved in the read
justment of Egyptian affairs will probably
be accepted by the powers iu interest as
proof that England means t» get the most
she can from her recent victory. If there
be a diplomat in Europe capable, of disen
tangling the knots into which the foreign
relations of the Kbedivate have been tied by
the last twelve months of anarchy. Lord
Dufferiu has shown himself to be the man.
Address in diplomacy is not a common en
dowment of the British statesman, and it is
very likely that the witty Irishman is
marked for a not distant cabinet career.
Were he in the foreign office England’s af
fairs would be in no danger of drifting into
the pass that Lord Granville was too blind
to foresee and incapable of remedying.
The exports of grain from the port of

A Philadelphia newspaper has made
the interesting discovery that uot all the
silver three cent pieces that have gone out
of circulation were retired by rolling into
cracks. Two tons of these represensible
coins are now at the mint in that city await
ing recoinage into ten-cent pieces, and sev
eral tons additional are stored in the Sub
Treasuries to meet a similar fate before
long. The total coinage of silver tiirce-cent
pieces has been some forty tons, according
to this authority.

The Beautiful Histrion.
Ordeals Through Which Mrs. Langtry
Has to Pass.
Since Mrs. Langtry stepped from the eane^
plank of the Arizona she has been singled^mt
by sight-seers for unabated, and not always
pleasant, attentions. Ladies of fashion, ladies
temporarily sojourning in the metropolis, ladies
from the country and ladies from abroad have
all banded together to besiege the English
beauty, and, through their cards, demand her
surrender to them. Tradesmen of all crafts
have thronged the corridor of the Albermarle,
and, indeed, people of every ilk have applied
for admission to her presence. However much
she may endeavor to remain in retirement, she
must receive her mail, and therefore through
the postoffice she is still assailable. All these
eager and cuuuing people know as much, and
such a flood of correspondence pours into her
apartments at the Albermarle as would set any
uational bureau buzzing, and All with dismay
any clerical force under the sun. Of course,
much of this consists of letters of invitation
here, there and everywhere. There are people
of fashion who seek her company, people of
business who crave her patronage. But con
spicuously foremost and above all others in
number, variety and “cheek,” are the epistles
of the autograph gatherers. Mrs. Langtry has
suffered from them like all who have preceded
tier, and it is odIj recently she has been forced
to understand that there is no satisfying the
demands <<f the persons clamoring for signa
tures. A New York Herald reporter who was
made aware of her experience with the auto
:»raj>h seekers, aud how constantly she had
been inundated by the cards of visitors, took
• cession 10 refer to both in a conversation with
her during the intervals of rehearsal a day or
two sii ce.
“Oh, callers; I must speak to you of them,”
said Mrs. Langtry, looking really distressed.
“A number of ladies have sent me up their
cards. Ever so rnauy people have presented
liemselves. I really do not know what to do.
You see, I am busy every day. I have hardly
au hour to spare. But I do not like to refuse
to see people who may come only out of good
nature.”
“Do you not fancy that some are trying to
makeyonr acquaintance through that informal
channel?”
“Perhaps that is true,” said Mrs. Langtr/.
“Has any one asked for your autograph?”
and tbe reporter awaited the effect of this que
ry, which usually throws the lion of the hour
ex posed to the machinations of the American
epistolary tiei.d in a paroxysm of excitement,
at once Mrs. Langtry was all animation.
“That is one thing I am in a quandary about,”
said she. “I have received piles and piles of
letters asking for my autograph. I would give
it willingly, but were I to devote every hour of
the day to signing my name it would be quite
inadequate to enable me to reply to all my cor
respondents. Why, my fingers are weary open
ing letters. I. found Mine. Nilsson was
troubled in the same way. She was compelled
to give up the work in despair. Now, I do not
know what to do. It may seem unkind not to
do so simple a service. But I cannot spare the
time. I was thinking,” said the lady sudden
ly, and reflecting as she spoke, “I was think
ing of letting them understand that I would
only put my signature in sach autographic al
bums as were brought me by their owners.
That would show they really wanted it,
wouldn’t ii!”
This proposition struck the reporter as of
doubtful efficacy.
“Would it not do?” Mrs. Langtry asked.
“It might,” he assented. “But it certainly
would hriug together a bigger mass meeting of (
sight-seeing ladies armed with autographic al
bums lhau the Albemarle Hotel could ever j
hold.”
Mrs. Langtry seemed to think there was
some truth in this, aud when rehearsal con
cluded she was still indoubt as to how she
should deal firmly but kindly with the rapa
cious seekers of signatures. Yesterday after
u'*ou Mrs. Langtry went out for a ride, and in
theevening went to Wallack’s Theatre to wit
ness the perf -nuance of “The Parveuu.” In
tbe box at tbe theatre along with Mrs. Langtry
sat Mrs Labouchere and Mrs. Abbey with Mr.
Abbey. Tne depressing influence of the weath
er was felt by the ladies, aud Mrs. Langtry
complained of a severe headache. She was
greatly interested in the play, however, and
tne performance did much to relieve the dis
piriting effects of her indisposition.
How to Pronounce It.
There are very lew who have not been puz- !
zled how to prononncc some out-of-the-way
word which has suddenly sprang into common
use. A bewildered reader writeB to the Bos
ton Herald saying that the pronunciation of
Whittier’s “Maud Muller” has long been such
a puzzle to him. “When I was a little fellow,”
he Bays, “I pronounced it ^phonetically, of
course, Mul-ler. Well, shortly after I heard a
literary gentleman—a jmdge, too—read the po
em at an evening gathering, and f noticed par
ticularly he pronounced it Mii-ler. I made a
noie of it and carried that pronunciation with
confidence for a long time, uutil one day in
High School the teacher informed us that the
pr< ‘per pronunciation of that name was M we-ler.
So i changed my colors again arid sailed under
Mwe-ler for quiie a while, unt 1 one day I got
into conversation with a young physician, a
good German student. ‘Oh yes,’ said he, 1
can tell you how to pronounce that name!
W henevt r you see a German word with two
oots over th • letter u it is al ays pronounced
as if immediately followed by an r, thus:
Mur.-er, Maud Murler.’ By this time I had
lost all confidence in everyone and decided 'o
let the young lady severely aloue, but the oth
er day 1 happened to ruu across a German
fresh Irom iheold country, and I said: ‘D-.
you have any people ov^r m your laud called
Muller? M-u-1 1-e r? ‘Oh yes, plenty.’ ‘Well,
what do you call them—bow do yoa pronounce
u? ‘M lier/ said he. ‘It’s a very common
name—Miller.’ I thanked him and left,
and now if there is auother way in which
<hat word can bo pronounced I should like lo
bear it. 1 am honestly seeking for informa
tion.”
The King and the Banker.
[London Globe ]
Noriac, an uncompromising Republican from
Limoges, met Louis Philippe one morning in
the gardens of the Tuileries. The Limoges
banker was wandering about, and, wanting
some explanations as to a group of statuary,
accosted an elderly gentleman who wore a
while hat and carried the legendary umbrella
of the Government of July. He found the
stranger courteous and eager to give every in
formation. When the Limousin had exhaust
ed Ins stock of questions, the stranger gently
unlimited, “You are a stranger, sir!” “Yes,”
said he, “I am from Limoges, a wonderful
country, and one which would be the happiesi
in France if it could be placed in water com
munication with other districts.” On being
asked why the Vienne canal could not be used
for purposes of navigation the old Limousin
told Ins interlocutor that several schemes had
been started for canalizing the shallow river,
but that the Government representatives had
done nothing to aid those who were ready to
make any sacrifice within their means for the
general welfare of the district.
“Well, sir,” said the stranger, "when you
returu home you tan assure your compatriots
from me lhat witbiu three years from the pres
ent the river will be navigable.” The Lim
ousin looked at the speaker, almost langhed in
his face, “You promise? I can assure my
friends in your name? Why, who are yoni
sir?” “I am Louis Philippe, King of the
French,” replied the Monarch, who unlatched
the gale of his own private garden, and, bow
ing to the amazed Limousin, walked away.
