Of the former, they admit that matter* are in guch shape a* to warrant the expectation of a speedy conclusion of the conference, comparatively unimportant detail* only remaining to be adjusted. But npon the provision* of the treaty, if a treaty ha* yet been drawn, they refnse to talk, further than to any that the public must receive its information respecting treaties in the usual course, namely, after the action of the United .State* Senate, to which body all treaties must be submitted for approval before they become operative. The obviona reason for this course lies in the fact that Important amendments are often made by the Senate, after treaties have been ar ranged by the diplomatic officer* of the treaty power*.

"Suppose," a landsman said, a "sailing ship is bowling along in a stiff breeze and a man falls overboard. How do you stop the ship to get tho man if the wind keeps on blowing?" "I don't know how a merchant captain would I go about it," replied the mariner, "but I can tell you how they heave to on a man-of-war. Say, for instance, a man falls overboard from the forecastle. One of his mates sings out to the officer of the deck, who is aft, 'Man over board!' " " 'Who is it?" " 'Watkins.' " 'Send for the ship's clerk and get Watkins' rate and number,' is the next command from the officer. ??The clerk appears with tho watch-book, from which it appears that Watkins is able seaman number 37, coxswain of the fourth cutter, and belongs to the maintop starboard watch. '? 'Orderly,' says the officer to tho marine on guard at the cabin door, 'see if the captain is 111 his room.' '? 'He is, sor,' say* the orderly, after a care ful investigation of the premises. " 'Then tell him his presence on deck is re quired immediately. "The captain steps out on deck with a sword in one hand and a trumpet in the other and looks straight ahead. Then the orderly tells the officer of the deck that the captain is on deck. The officer comes off the bridge, steps up beside the captain and then takes a walk around the block. That is, he starts off and turns four square corners, fetching up in his original tracks alongside the captain. He then touches his cap, slaps himself on the leg and say*: "Captain, it now devolves upon me as officer of the deck to inform you that Richard Wat kins. aged forty, single, with red whiskers, able seaman No. 37, coxswain of the fourth cutter and assistant quarter-gunner and diver, a member of tho maintop mess, starboard watch and who shipped in Vallejy, Cal., Sep tember 23, 18?, on a continual service certifi cate, has fallen overboard." "'When?' asks the captain. " 'To-day, sir.' " 'Spill and back the maintopsail," yells the captain through his trumpet. 'Let go and haul over the head sheets! Hard down with the wheel?lively with it, there! Lay aft the life-boat's crew and man your falls!' "By the time the life-boat is cleared away the siiip is hove to with her sails flapping and a hunt is made for Watkins. But he is seven miles or so astern and before the boat reaches him he succumbs to exhaustion or sharks." "Poor fellow," sighed tho old man at the conclusion of this story. "It is indeed a thrill ing experience and I would like to talk with a man who had fallen overboard." "You'll have to consult a medium then," was all the sailor said. One Way to Pay for an Education. From the Boston Advertiser. A Harvard man tells "The Breakfast Table" a good story of how a poor but ambitious young fellow managed to stay at the law schooL The student in question lived in a sparsely settled western village, where school advantage* are few. and opportunities to follow higher studies unknown. After getting what education he could at the irregular country school* he bought and borrowed the books used in fitting for college and mastered them. Then decid ing to enter the law be looked about for friends to loan him money enough to go to the Harvard law school. But since he could find no one who would loan him a considerable sum without security he had to resort to a not un common. but unpleasant plan. He had hi* life insured and the policy made over to the money-lender, who thereupon advanced him *1,000. ??i?1??*?? Agaaalz'a Snakes. . From RecoUcctioui of Court sad Huiiety.

A Telegraph Suit for $50,000, The trial of the suit of the Interstate teto- ! graph company against the Baltimore and Ohio telegraph company has been begun in the United States circuit court in Balti more before Judges Bond and Mor ris. The amount of damages claimed | is ??='50.000. In 1885 the Baltimore and Ohio telegraph company entered into an agree ment with the Interstate company that, if the lutter would build a line from De troit, Mich., to Avilla, Ind., and Fostoria, 111., it would exchange business with tho Interstate company, each company to give to the other all business coming to its office for points on the line of the other not reached by its own lines. The Balti more and Ohio telegraph company agreed that in case it should at any time sell or transfer its lines to any other company, it would make proper provision for the interstate company. The delaration of the interstate company states that about October. 1887, the Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph com- I panv did transfer its lines to the Western Union without making such provision. This failure to keeps its contract rendered the lines of the interstate company, which cost 4*40.000, practically worthier THE GIItL OF THE PERIOD. She Disdains Even the Trouble of Teaching Her Grandmother. From the London Queen. The girl of seventeen, whoso ideal of music is "Dorothy" and who can just strum through 'Tho Queen of My Heart" and the last new waltz or polka, finds Chopin and Mendelssohn deadly dull and old-fashioned when played by one of the older generation. She has been to a school of art and can make an indifferent sketch in chalks of a plaster of paris hand or foot, so thinks she can afford to look down on the somewhat over-smooth and over-colored, but pretty and artistic water colors of twenty years ago. She has been to a banjo class, to an ambulance class, to a cooking class, and though the wounded or the hungry would come off very badly if they depended on her efforts, she has at least learned enough to be able to lay down the law to her relations. She has also "gone in for" somo branches of art or science, of which she supposes her mother and aunts barely know the names. Then as to amusements. Croquet, according to her, was a game only fit for the inmates of a lunatic asylum. Sho ridicules any of the games that made pleasant evenings twenty years ago; it is not that she does not care for them, and says so, but she condemns them as absurd, im possible. the offspring of a diseased brain! She is. as was said of Lord Macauley. "cock sure of everything," and of nothing more than of the superiority of the young over the old. It is something to be thankful for that we have not reached the standard of manners | which still prevails in some ports of Australia, Polynesia, and Africa, where the absence of old'people was noticed by some inquiring trav eler, aud he was informed that as soon as they arrived at decrepitudo they were painlessly killed and found a ready tomb in the maws of the younger members of the tribes. - The Average Man Disappointing. From the Philadelphia Sunday School Times. A common method of planning for a desired result in the sphere of benevolent endeavor is based on averages. If a certain amount of money is to be raised in a church or in a Sun day school or in a community, it is very easy to see that an average of so much to each mem ber will secure all that is desired. If a cer tain work is to be done which involves a speci fied number of workers, it is obvious that an average of so many workers to a given field will be ample for the necssities of the case. This simple sum in arithmetic is very often ac cepted as the warrant for a hope of results that would gladden the hearts of multitudes; but unfortunately the issue is ordinarily very far short of tho expectation. Tho reason of the failure is, that the average man never does his duty. It is always the extraordinary man that accomplishes anything in this world. Not the extraordinarily rich man nor the extraordi narily able man. nor the extraordinarily good man, but tho extraordinarily faithful man is the man who finally counts for a good result in any undertaking in life. This truth is an im Sortant one witn its practical bearings on the uty of all those who would gain help from others or give help to others. If you are plan ning to raise a certain sum of money or to se cure a certain number of helpers, the first thing for you to think of is; who are the ex traordinary persons to whom I can turn at this juncture? If. on the other hand, a call is made on you for aid in an emergency, your question ought not to be, What is my duty as an average helper just now? but, What is my duty as an extraordinary helper? A good average is a poor attainment. He who is not above the average is beiow his own fair level. Boston Standing Pride. Letter to the New Orleans Picayune. Beans can not reasonably be complained of so far as their cost ^s concerned, since an 8-cent quart of them?swelled by cooking to five or six quarts in bulk?will furnish a satisfying meal for nine persons. Besides, they are ex ceedingly nutrition and most toothsome as well wheh booked by the Boston method. For some reason one never finds them so well prepared for the table in other cities, unless from Boston' cans. It is because they are so cheap that they are consumed in such enormous quantities in the manufacturing towns hereabouts by the laboring classes. To this is partly to be re ferred the fact that one-half the entire bean crop of the United States is eaten in Boston and its neighborhood. Nevertheless the bean eating habit is making rapid pccgrsss ia the south and watt, where the vegetable is sold CTsrywhors ia cans put op than. bisT&cT boWuS MKXT. OVKRFXOWSI) BASEKKXTR.

Some years since, in a certain town 'out west," it became necessary in a surgical case that an amputation of a limb should be made. The 'Tegular doctors in the country nowaday* are great sticklers for the observance of the code of ethics, and this code discountenance* advertising in all its forms. All the same, the surgeon m the smaller places rarely performs even the most trivial operation without acci dentally dropping a word or two in the hearing of the local reporter, and should the paper chance to say that "Tom Jones fooled with a buzz saw, Dr. I'ilbox drottod the wouud. and Lane is doing as well as could be expected un der the doctor's skillful treatment," why of course, the doctor can't help that. He is very much annOved, to be sure, but the thing i* done. At the amputation above mentioned were present Drs. A, B, C. and D. and the en terprising newsgatherer for the Heekly lhutier [ found the operation a veritable bonanza for his paper, and wrote it up in great style. Unfor tunately he omitted tho name of old Dr D from his account, and the old doctor, upon meeting him a few days later, "turned him over in great shape for his alle*ged discourtesy The newspaper man made every apology and promised faithfully to make amends in the Hustler of the weekf following, and this is tho way in which he dr j t: "In our account of the amputation in last week's issue we inadvert ently omitted the name of Dr. D. We have since been informed that the doctor was one of the leading surgeons in the case and assisted very materially in the operation. The patient died last night at 8 o'clock." A Strictly Judicial Answer. From the Lewis ton Journal. One of the best stories of white-haired, white-chokered, courteous Calvin Record is about a mellow old lawyer who used to lire on the banks of the Androscoggin. The squire was given to deep potations, and was famous for his fine distinctions. It is said that in special pleading he could split a hair even more closely than Mr. Record can himself. But often after the shades of night had fallen the squire might have been seen struggling home, so boozy that ho apparently could nut split a shingle, to say nothing of a hair One night when he was drunker than usual he staggered completely out of his course and could not find it Re alizing that he was lost and drifting into unfamiliar regions, he called at a house to ask for information. "Madame," he gravely said to the lady who came to the door, candle in hand. "Can vou tell (hie) me where Squire livesV" "Certainly," she said, and gave him full di ! rections. But as she talked and looked, and as her candle gradually brought out the features of the man before her, a puzzled expression came into her face and she finally asked "But \mn't this 8quire Blank?" ?
