names of cities want to an expert
maker of cipher codes to see S be

"Hate yon made no personal ar
rangement with any correspondent by
which those names d cities ore to
stand for certain phrases?" asked the
expert.
"I have not," answered the man;
"I came to yon because f thought yon
might hare some code containing the

they soon fo?m<i that the ingenaity of
thetr merchant patrons enacted them
to send almo«t any meeria*e at the
cost of a few word*, by devising code*
wherein each tetter «tood for a phrase,
and wherein even the jn*tepo*itK>n of
ktten and naraeraOa, wbkb in then*
aeire!i bad indkat«>i still
other meanings. Of coarse, thia re

wonisover a nertain of letters
in length. Then they refused to take
proper names, unlees the context
sboeeii they were a necessary part.
All this, of coarse, was to make it
so bard te tret up satisfactory and per
manent eafite codes that the merchant
would be compelled for safety'* sake
to report to straight out-and-out dis
course in framing his message. But
a* tit* difficulties Increased, men t»-
jr&n to make specialties of devising in

the co«t <>r cabling about it cat off

"Hut even then »-<*le* were u»ed, hot
of a ' arioua sort. In one that i know
of, for instance, it wan arranged that a
certain large catalogue of common

no meaning whatever. The cipher

catalogue. ami the exempted words
were used to fill in, giving the sem

strange to the operators that we
should telegraph Thomas, who was
'OUO miles away, to prepare medicine
for Carrie, wto was presumably in
New York, especially as the rate then
was about 90 a word. It must also
have seemed strange that Carrie got
very ill every time there was a rise in
the nitrate market. But the message
was straight discourse, and of course
the company had nothing to do but
accept the message. *
"Competition finally came to the
merchant's aid. New cable line*,
seeking business, offered more literal
conditions, and gradually the mer
chant acquired, as hi* recognized
right, the power of using a cipher code.
Still moat of the original petty restric
tions were adopted by all competitors.
Among these were the regulations
against pr per names. As a matter
of fact, in the present state of competi
tion, one is totally sale in using proper
names and ciphers, for each com
pany is afraid of driving custom to
a rival by applying the rule. Conse
quently there are any number of small
personal or temporary codes agreed
upon between man and man to
serve a certain immediate purpose,
in which names of towns or persons

know when some big cable company
may swallow up a small competitor
wbome <ne of our patrons patronise*

rule, to the disadvantage of our pat

more strongly than in cabling. Mer

.lay Uoaid's Daughter Nellie.
New York Lrttrr.
Miss Nellie «»ould, the great finan
cier's eldest daughter, probably has
more independent property than any
other unmarried woman in America.
Hhe is her father '# favorite, and every
year he gives her presents of stocks
and bonds which amount up into the
hundred thousands. He takes great
pains with her investments also, with
the result that her fortune grows apace
every year. Added to thin, her mother,
who had a fortune of several millions,
left the greater share of her property
to Nellie; so that she is estimated to
lie worth over $0,000,000. Her life has
l»een passed in the quietest way, and
though she is but 30 years of age, her
mode of existence is as quiet and hum
drum as though she wen 40. The big
<Souid mansion rarely sees any fes
tivity, and an awning' up in front of
their door would throw the neighbor
hood into a panic of excitement. Her
mother's failing health has been partly
the cause of this, for Miss Could was
not only her devoted attendant and
companion, but was also the bead of
;be household and bore its whole re
sponsibility. They have a box at the
but they are not very regular
attendants, and the only place in which
she is frequently seen is the Presby
terian church of which she is a mem
; ber. She interest* herself in charities
also, and in half a dozen summer
| homes for sick babies and poor women.
A Lawyer Meets Hit Match.
New York Buu.
Once in a while an eminent cross
examiner meets hismatcb. This hap
pened to Henry L. Clinton in the
VanderNlt will case. Among the wit
nesses who testified to the queer class
of people who u*ed to go to the com
modore's office was Miss Susan King,
a wealthy and highly reipectable lady
of this city: a sharp business woman
of mature years, who has traveled
around the world, and yet happened
to be unknown to Mr. Clinton or any
of *he sharp detectives employed by
Wm. H. Vanderbilt to trace the wit
nesse< of the other side. Mr. Clinton
was, therefore, not well equipped when
he tackled Miss King, and he went at
her rather roughly, and Ibis was what
happened.

Mrae. Bernhardt is about to soon be

divine Harah nursing her son's intant

Her oldest bov was married some
thiug more than a year ago to a
princess, and the young people have a j
beautiful little home down near Ver
sailles. He is a sort of stockbroker
on the Bourse in Pari#. I believe hi*
wife had ?ome means, and Mme. Bern
hardt allow-- her son an income. I
suppose the young man earns some
thing himself, and tbev live quite
happily. When the child is born they
are going to have a big time over it,
and make the occasion an event in the
Bernhardt family. It is said that the
madam is quite pleased with her
daughter-in-law. and will feel an ex
ceptional interest in her first grand-
K" lid. What singular recollections
is event will recall. Truly they can
not harness genius to* ordinary
methods Talent is eccentric, and
Mme. Bernhardt is possessed of so
much of it that "he seems quite able to
disregard all ordinary rules of life in
following her own inclinations.
The City of Mombasa.
Mombasa, one of the most impor
tant cities and fortresses on the east
African coast, and Sitnated to the
south of Zanzibar, is perched on an
island in the middle of an inlet of the
sea forking off into two branches and
running deep into the land. The
island, which is about three miles in
length, is low-lying and covered with
splendid rnango. guava and cocoa
palms, and is inhabited by about 3000
Wasuabeli and by about 300 Arabs.
The city consists of the ancient fort
built by the Portuguese in the year 1691
and the ruins of the Portuguese town
of Gavana. and what is known as the
black town. It is the basis from
whence the United Methodist mis
sions and the Church Missionary So
ciety dispatch their caravans and sup
plies to their stations,gt> the xkores of
Lake Victoria Nyanza. It is also the
starting point of a number of impor
tant caravan routes to the eastern por
tion of the lake region of the Nile.-
and carries on an important traffic in
ivory, copal gum. corn rhinosceros
hides, etc.
Jay Gould's Pastor.
N. Y. Letter to Philadelphia Times.
The Rev. John H. Pax ton. D. 0., is
a peculiarly dashing preacher. He is
impolitic, and has mixed himself up
with several rows unnecessarily, but
his sermons are remarkably forcible in
language and delivery, and his Pres
byterian church is crowded by one of
the wealthiest congregations "in New
York. The Gould* have two pews in
hi*, church, and he is an intimate
friend of the family. Gould was not
formerly religious at all. so far as any
body knew, and he rarely went to
church; but acquaintance' with Dr.
Paxton led to nis attendance, occa
sionally at tirst. but latterly regularly,
lie has not joined the church, but he
has been urged strongly by his pastor
to do so, and has shown signs of acqui
escence. It is curtain that Paxton has
made a determined effort to convert
him, supplying him with a large num
ber of tbeolog!< al books to read, spend
ing many afternoons with him at hia
residence since his retirement from
Wall street, and, at all events, becom
ing a familiar and welcome com
panion.

Boos, LA, May SSL 1888-Th* Swift SpeclCo
Co., Atlanta, Oa—Gentlemen t About two
years ago my general health gave way en
tirely. I was so debilitated that I afmo>t
de«uaired of ever feeling well again. All
thai the physicians done for me brought to
permanent relief. _ Friends Insisted that I
should give a &. 8. a fair trial, although I
thought It would be throwing away moner.
After taking a thorough course, my healtu
and strength returned, and t must say that
8. * & alone cared me, as I discarded all
others while using he. As a tonic I can mo-it
h»artSy recommend it; for general debility.
It certainly isaspecific. W. R. BUBOES, J.T*.
