Are not women naturally as light-hearted, brave, and hope as men? e t ;) (; c ft 7 Mv everv Yes; but woman's organism is different from man's. Women in perfect or good health are rarely victims of this sTmptom. Women nearly monopolize the blues, because their peculiar ailments promote them. When the female organs fail to perform their functions properly, when the dreaded female complaints appear, there is shown nervousness, sleeplessness, faintness, backache, headache, bearing down pains, etc., causing the dreaded " let-me-alone" and "all-gone ' feelings. When the woman does not understand what the matter is, and her doctor can not or will not tell her, she grows morose and melanchol3r ; that's the blues.

It is denied here that' the jxrte has refus-d to admit a second tlisateh boat for the service of the United States legation. The mat ter, it apjiears, is not yet settled. The Iorte, it is claimed, dot's not contest the right of entry, but contends that the moment for such a reinforcement is in opportune. It has been much remarked in official circles here that since the rigorous action of the United States minister. Mr. Alexander W. Terrell, in behhalf of the American missionaries, he alont is mentioned in the court circulars as a gust at the court dinners. The impression prevails in diplomatic circles here that the United States and Great Britain may eventually unite ir order to save the Armenians.

"Did you ever know that there is a deadly antijKitby U-twtrn a common water fnake and an eel?" asked the fisln rnian. rerts tbe 1 n.l ia rja i i s Sen tinel. "Well, I never knew it until an exerieice lhat I had in witnessinr a light lietween the two.

In a moment I saw a big wtlcr snake make a dive for it. At ihc lirst lunge it caught tbe neck of tbe eel squarely between ils te-tli ami I could see it sink its tiglv -boking fangs into the eel's flesh. I waited anxiously to see the developments. With its grim bold still on tbe eel's neck tbe snake, quick as it takes to tell it, wrapped its sinuour lody around its antagonist's neck in an effort to squeeze it to death. Tbe lody of tbe eel was too sleek, how ever, and the snake's coils, despite all it could do, would slip down into tbe water. Time and time again it tried to squeeze tbe life out of its antagonist, never for an instant releasing its bold on tbe eel's reck, but tbe lxxlv of the latter was too sleek for it. and every time it would slip down. Finally the hiMk broke, and tbe eel made gxd its escape." WOULDN'T WEAR IT. ENTANGLED IN THE A. P. A. IGNORED. Accused In the House of Kibbling Cath olic Charitable Institutions. Washington, Feb. 5.

Much feeling was engendered aud at times the debate grew quite exciting. The amendments passed as far as sectarian institutions were concerned. It was openly declared, that it was a fight of the A.

Very Cat I'nfortnnate Predicament of a Man at the Theater. lie was such a very fat. man that the entire audience turn-d around to hnik at him when lie came into the theater in the midilk- of the first act and took his sect in aa orchestra chair. He wore his last year's fall overcoat, says tbe 1'hilailelpbia Record, which was light for him. He had evidently taken on flesh during the year. He paid no at tention to tb-1 interest bis ncighliors evinced in him, but sat down and at once became ahsorlied in the piay. lie grew warm, and with bis eyes still glued to the stage, be arose anil shed his overcoat. The iieoplc around him legau to titter, am! finally to bniirb very audibly. The fat man reali.cd at length that the s-oie were latighiiigat him. Then he not iced, w it h great cou fusiou, that he was in bis sbirtsleees. His sack coat bad come off with thi ol her. He put them ltoth on again ami tried to peel off the overcoat, but it wouldn't, move a liltle bit. He gave a deser:ite tug and wriggled his fat shoulders, and the next moment be was in his shirtsleeves again, "ln-t out!" "Sit down!" "Kip it off!" cried the ieople lebind him, Imt the fa man ti ied again, and with the assistance of two men in the s-ats Whimi him he finally managed to shed bis overcoat. BENDING OF WOODS. An Art Kxtcuslvely I sed In Carriage and Koat Building. Comparatively few jiersons outside the carriage and lioat-huihiiug indus try are aware of the extent of the vvol liending industry, and but few reali,..' that tbe carriages they ride in are very largely- made of such wood the felloes of all their wheels are lent and made intwojKirts the framework of coaches and heavy carriages is nearly all mad, of lent stock, and not only lietter made, but more cheaply and tbe frames of pleasure lxiats are lent, as also many of the frames of the finest saili mt yachts; furniture, too, of many kimi iias In-nt frames, all the celebrated Thonet chairst, for example.

The ob ject of Wilding is twofold, says the Woodworker, namely, saving of tine am! stock and stability and strength of the work when put together thisiiiue liciident of Wauty of form; and Win carriage shafts are almost, if not en tirely, used now, inste:ul of the old style, clumsy, sawed ones.

Tlii-e was some -uriosity on the part of tbe audience for further light on tbe disHsition of the Jl.lHMl. but Mr. Vogel sang immediately spun off on to all ot her storv. Sad Mistake Made by a Short-sighted Bishop in Kngland. There is a bat story in v hich a well known bishop and a la'dv-diH cased marquis played leaditiil jiarts. The mar quis, w ho ma tried a t,aiet y chorus girl, and. general!;- ss-aking, lived up to tbe high s'ainlartl of bis marriage life, was accustomed to wear a particular style of bat. shorter thau that favored by niost men. Ore day, says the St. James liudg-t. be went into hi-, batmal.er's in Piccadilly and akcd for a new one to W made. The shopwalker took tbe bat. aud walked down to the far cud of the shop to p-ive tbe reqtiisite instructions, lea imr 1 he bat less marquis stamling mi t he shop. At this moment there entered the s.iort-sii; hted bishop of X, also in want of a new headgear. He saw oiilv a small man. w bo misrbt have juissed "r a shopkeeja'e, standing starin": at him. So he took bis -culiar hat off bis bead and went up to him. "lo you think, my good 111:111." he said, jn-rsiias'nely. "that rou have a bat like that-. The manjuts lool., 1 at him for a iiuiii r.1, sjieccbless Willi indignation, while tb s -bopkeeM-r. i-e:iig what was amis-,, hurried up as fast as he could. I'nfor tunately. the marquis found liis voit-e In-fore tbe hat man reaehed his client. "No." he said g'uinir the bishop back bis headgear: "1 ba'.eu't got a bat like 1 bat. ami if I had I'm blowed U I would wear it!" Prance aud Oreat lirilaln. The population of France in 1-01 was S,.14.1.1t, and of (irc-at I'.ritaiii .".7,-,-15:i, or a difference of only alstuf half a million in favor of France. It is now aunotineed that the census to In- t.;ken 1 be coming year will show that t lie 0 ulation of (ireat Kritaiu is the greater. The reason for this reversal of relation is t lie small birt h rate of France and t tie unusually largo one in tireat Britain. There bas Wen no emigration of conse quence into tbe latter country, and France lias bst but little by emigration, so that the a'Mve cause accounts for the relative British increase of over l.OOO. lAlO. Tbe area of France is over 24' .000 luiles, and that of tireat Britaiu only a little more than half as great, or 121,4-1 miles. - BERRY'S HENS WERE SLEEPY.

But After Testing the Result Her Hua Imnd Wwa I'liappreelat ive. With one of those pood intentions with which the infernal regions are said to W jKived, an economic uptown housewife recently dyed her hubby's shabby bat.

Petroleum In KumI- A jieeuhar fact in respect to j.-tro-leum is the difference of conditions tin der w hich 1 bat oil occurs in Kussia and America. In the former it is found in strata of the tertiary period, usually a formal ion resembling a quicksand, ami at depths of only a few hundred feet. In our own -otmtry it (KTtirs at great depths in the older -onitact sandstones and limestones. American oil yields a crv large pioortion. say almiit To -r cent., of illuminating oil exactly suititl for combustion in our ordinary luiiqis; tbe Kussian oil prluce far less of such oil and a larger proportion of high-class lubricating oil. The Kus sian illuminating oil also requires UW biirnet in a modified form of lamp vv it h a more jicrfect draught. in order to over come its tendency to produce a moky flame, and it is largely this fact which has prevented the consumption of Kus sian oil for light abroad. Navel Oranges. It lias ln-en shown that the tanger ine orange and jMissibly some other varieties are formed t h rough 1 he effort of the orange to make a sccondary growth at tbe ajiex of tbe original oue. only that i failed to make any original at all. In other words, the tangerine orange is a well-devclopetl secondary fruit. How this -an W brought iilmtit may W readily understood by carefully examining tbe oranges known in tbe market as the navel variety. In these cases a small orange can often In- found at the apex, sometimes of considerable si.e. When the small one is largely devcloed and the larger one wholly suppressed, then we have the tangerine.
