MURDOCH, Editor. SATURDAY MORNING. APBIL 24. IN EXILE. Soma day I may retake the rood To Dreamland's sweet oblivion, . Though now I keep my bare abode In streets my late companions shun. To nooks below the greenwood tree They call and call; in sweet disguise Of bloom and song they beckon me, And lore mo in each maiden's eyes. But nights they Icare tboir haunts and throng About me. When my tasks are done Some day I'll put them into song, And find my happy country won. L Frank looker, in The Century. VEGETABLE AND MORAL PRODUCT. A. Carious Analogy Said to Exist In Cer tain Districts at the Globe. There seems a curious analogy between the vegetable and moral product of certain districts. In the land of the Apaches all nature seems to become fpinescent. Mes quitoj and wilJ-roeo bushes, with an under growth of brambles, cover whole hillsides. Cactus thickets make the ravines almost im passable. Mesquitcs and cactus appear to hare a marvelous adaptation for drawing moisture from the arid soil; but the chief secret of their survival is perhaps their arm ature of thorns, enabling them to maintain a much-disputed claim to existence. car Cerritcs. in the Gila valley, a plan tation of 1S,000 young chestnut trees were destroyed by rnawing and browsing 'ver min' in a single year. Cabbage could there be raised only in a rat-proof hot-house, but the mala muger, a vcgetablo porcupine with out any visible leave), can freely expose itself on the ojjea prairie. The ani mal concomitants aro equally sofa Taran tulas, centipedes, and steel blue hornets mul tiply undisturbed. Rattlesnakes thrive like wrigglers in a mill-pond. Coyotes (literally Eand dogs) survive where Dr. Tanner would perish. .Nay, like their congeners, the jackal and tho hyena, they seem naturally to grav itate toward the barrenest regions of tho habitable earth, to regions apparently una ble to promise them cither shelter or food. And the brigands seem to follow the tend ency of tho same law. On either side of the Atlantic, deserts (Spanish despoblados, Lja., depopulate! districts) aro haunted by rob bers as ruins by owls and ghosts. In all worn-out countries the outlaw's knife, gleams among thistlos and thorns. For armed self help is mostly nothing but a reaction against aggression often only a defensive reaction. Tho Bedouin and tho bramble-bush ask nothing but to be left alone. To tho weak that wish is not readily granted; but nature has a way of her own for tempering tho storm to destitute lambs. Wool, too often shorn, turns into bristles. Dr. Felix L. Oswald. Tlio Daughters or Oticen Victoria. All these ladies lead very dull and hum drum lives. They aro too high to find equals in society; they must be surrounded with a certain degree of state and cere mony; they Iiavo their people in waiting; everybody courtesies or kotows to them. But this is the extent of tbeir grandeur. Their incomes aro not to bo compared with tho revenues of tho nobility; their jewels and toilets are inferior to tho trappings of many of the ladies who wait on them; they havo no great estates, or mansions even, but must put up with apartments in some half-deserted palicj; and tho spectacle they present of impoverished royalty is pitiable rather than digniiied. The nation grudges thorn their albwanru and threatens not to support their children. Tho demand for a dowry is fought by tho Radicals at each successive marriage, and the more obsiuro they remain the tatter tho chance of their 1-ortion being paid. Tho English, perhaps, aro still willing to bo taxed for tho state of tho sovereign ami of the heir to the throne, but not for tho support of the royal rela tives, whoso existence is a burden to tho na tion and can novcr bo a benefit On tho whole, tho fate of theso ladios, born in a palace, but not to palatial fort unes, is far from enviable. None of them possesses natural gifts or attractions suffi cient to compensate for the lack of wealth and iniluoncc, or to ornament their places or confer a personal distinction. None w ill inako names cr careers like those of the famous princesses of history. They stand in tho light of tho throne, but have none of its lustre. They aro let up on a pinnacle without qualities or oven circumstances to attract tho admiration which their position demands, and without which royal rank, especially for a woman, is only an exposure and a mockery.

Samo 1'ovtIa in tho Cattiiry Isle. In ono of cur walks about tho town wo stumbled on a lino collection of ganio cocks. Quito a largo houso seemed to bo appro priated for their use, and on the ground in tho street in front of it were standing thirty or forty latticed bottomless boxes or coops, each one containing a gamo cock; and look ing through tho open doors wo saw that thero were plenty more in tho house. They were brought out evidently for sun and air, and also for the pleasures of com ersation, for they were croning nnd cock-a-looing together in a most vigorous an 1 instructive manner. A man took them out one by one in lii hands inspecting them carefully. Some ho replaced evidently finding them all right, and others ho took to another man who was straddling a bench under tho shade o? a wall TLo second man seemed to be a professor. Ho minutely examined tho gamo cock sub mitted to him, much as a phrenologist feel: of a subject's bead, critically inspecting its legs nnd spurs, and thrusting his nose against its body up among tho feathers and smelling it all o er. The tail feathers of each Lird were separated from tho plumage of tho body by about an inch of space, from which tho down had been pulled out, and the hare, red skin shun: like a scarlet ring. If any down or tuzz appeared in this ions h.; plucked it out either with his lingers or with tomo tweercrs.

It is useless for any one to deny that writers unknown in literature have a hard struggle at first to obtain'a hearing. Still, I believe thtt any oao ho has a story worth telling or original ideas worth recording no matter on what sub.ect can eventually find some publi-hor with sulllciont discern ment to recognize the fact. Iu literature, as iu every thing else, p.-ople are liko water sure to find tboir level sooner or later. I think the plan I ued frequently to follow is a good one for all young writers anxious to have their production see ths light cf day. When I first aspired to write for something more substantial than love or glory, I made oat a list of all the American periodica!, commencing with what I considered the best, and going by regular gradations to the poorest. If 1 wrote a story 1 would send it to all of these periodicals, commencing with tho first, in the order of their refusal. Let any young writer do this, and, my word for it, if his oilusion posses-es any merit what ever it will not be rejected by the entire list Georgo W. Cabla. The Vv of Stosrs in Serria.

ExchanEB. CROSSDf G THE IEGS. OBSERVATIONS CONCERNING A FORM OF PHYSICAL RELAXATION. The Performances of a Discomfited Lovr When the Brain Is Actively Engaged the Limbs Are Straightened Out Head ing tha Morning Paper. 'Have yon rvar noticed any striking pe culiarities about the way people cross their kneeaP asked a reporter of an old Denverite who has seen a deal of the world at homo and abroad, the other day. "Tea, indeed," laughed the portly gentle man of many experiences. "I have often studied the phase, both in men and women, but it never occurred to me that any one else was struck with it About the first in stance I remember occurred when I was a boy at home in my father's house. One of my very pretty sisters had two admirers one of them she encouraged because she re turned his sentiment, and the other sho was obliged to treat courteously because he was the son of an old friend of the family. "Well, those young man used to happen in on the same evening, and then it was a tie between them as to who should outstay tho other. The son of an old friend naturally was the ridiculous object in this proceed ing, but he stayed with a degree of persist ency worthy of a Letter cause. I used to tell my sister that his mute way of crossing bis logs had a language all its own. When be entered the house, only to find 'the other fellow,' as he always did, be inariably wriggled about for a little time, apparently undecided as to whether to stay or not; but his inclination always conquered his judg ment, and when he leaned back in his chair and deliberately crossed his legs, we knew that ho meant to stay. AS HIS THOCOUTS ErVOLVED. "When it began to grow Into ho would mechanically uncross his legs, but enly to cross them directly, if be couldn't possibly make up his mind to go. Finally, when the clock struck a late hour, he would slowly (it even seamed painfully) uncross his legs, place loth feet on the floor, and begin to button his coat with a manner that sav ored of despair. Theso motions never failed; thoy were gone through as regularly as ho cams to the house, and they wcra tho most expresssire 'language of tho legs' that I havo ever teen. Tho way tho fellow crossed and uncrossed his legs showed all tho inner workings of his heart Hi. legs were tho thermometers of his passion, and they never once failed in performing their office. " "You don't for an instant suppose he knew what ho was doing i" "Certainly not Crossing and uncrossing his legs as his thoughs revolved through his mind was as instinctivo with him ru breath ing. His unconsciousness of what he was doing was just what made it so interesing to observe him." "At what times do you thing men gener ally cross their legs mostf "Why, at those times when there is the least pressure on their minds, certainly. You will novcr find a man actually en gaged in Lusiness with his legs cronsed. Tho limbs at those times are straigbt:r than at any other, becauso tho mind and body work together and there is no giving way of either function to relaxation A man engage! in auditing accounts will never cress bis legs; neither will a man who is writing an m tide, or who is employed in any manner where his brain is actively en gaged; when at work in a sitting posture, tho limbs naturally extend to tho floor in a perfectly straight line. WJinX HE CETB IX EABXEST. "A man may ross his legs if he is sitting In an oftice-chair discussing some business proposition with another man, but tho instant ho becomes really in earnest and perceives something to be gained his limbs uncross as quick as a ilasn, ho bends for ward toward his neighbor and begins to use his hands. That is a phase that I believe you will always observe." "ilen ofttn cross their legs at public meetings, do they not;" "Certainly they co, beeauo they go there to listen or to bo entertained; thoy are not the factors in the performance, and they naturally place themselves in the most com fortable position known to them namely, that of leanii.g well back in their chairs and crossing their legs. A man always crosses his legs when bo reads a nawsjiaper, but is more apt tolie down when he reads a book. Ho reads tho pajer, of oarse, to inform hinrelf, but at the same time the perusal of its contents is rorreatio.i to him, and his body seeks its josition of relaxation. "When a man is reading a newspaper and waiting for his breakfast his legs are always crossed, but us soon as his breakfast is brought to him ho puts the paper aside, straightens out his legs and goes to work; that is, begins to eat, his mind now turning on U.o duties of thy day before him. When I said men lay down to read books, I know whereof 1 spoe. Tbero uro more men who read themselves to sleep nowadays than you subject, but you see, book-i coding always requires more time, and a man with on hour to spare naturally throws himself dewn on a lounge, and if ho has any literary taste takes up a book and devours its contents as he rests. Ho cither does this or sticks his feet on a tabH when he roads, and you know tha (it-rman students have their slip pers nailed to the wall so that their feet may rearh thein cs soon as they sit down." Dan vcr Tribune. The Sphinx of North Carolina. A correspondent writes to The Star, of Washington, that in North Carolina there is a mountain formation very closely re sembling the Sibinr. It is called tho "I'ilot Knob," and is in Surrey county, in tho northwojtorn part of the state, just east of the Bluo IMdge; its position prone on the I'ieduiont plain, like a gigantic lion; its body at right angles to the precipitous ridge, and with head reared aloft, as if in Ure act of rising.

Joaqain Miller Writes of the Maguey riant IU Universal Csefalness. Here we have a blossom as big a a bar rel, and twice or thrice as long. From this j huge bulk it begins lengthen out and stand up as ii li meant io kuock iu top against tha stars. 1 have seen this flower of ""rfiy attain to forty feet in height And I think it must at such times hold on its tall and splendid stem about 5,000 bloom. Tha agave comes very near being bread, meat, milk, and clothing to tho Mexican. Ha makes hammocks and all kinds of cords and rope j and bags and coarse clothes out of its fiber; Iu covers his miserable hut with it after a fashion, and feeds it to his donkey. It is frequently his only provision, and it is certainly his meat and drink in the farm of pulque nearly all the time, as I have do- scribed in & former letter. But it is as a flower I set out to write of tho maguey or agave, often, also, miscalled the aloe, by Americans. After this tre mendous blossom has burst from tha heart of the so-called "century plant," and is about to shoot up high in tho heavens it is cut down by the farmer. This flower is then picked off and roasted, as an TnHin would roast corn. Briefly, this wonder ful Cower of Mexico is then made into a sort of whisky, called tequila pro nounced to-hcc-la. This tequila is a rather hot and pepperish drink, but physicians advise strangers to drink it in preference to either tha whisky or brandy to be bought in Mexico.

It is cer tainly tha cheapest drink in Mexico. It is perhaps high time that the foolish tradition about this plant blossoming only every century be disposed of. In t'outh America it blossoms about every ten years. In tha valley of Mexico reliable ranchmen te.l me it blossoms regularly every seven years. The notion about its coming to flower only every century no doubt had its origin in the heads of ignorant hoodlums of the far north, where this plant, very naturally, I should say, had very serious objections to ever blossoming at alb But it is timo to cease particularizing, about this flower or that, in a land where there is still many a Cower unnamed and entirely unknown, and content ourselves with s;me genuine bits of color and of character from tho flower-dealers. Joaquin Miller in Chicago Times. Tones nf the American Voice. Tho Americans moke tha English lan guage tho cay and fluent i chicle of their ideas. They do not consider a cadence or a drawl a necessary part of it In this re spect they more resemble tho French, who, while talking rather faster than a foreigner thinks necessary, yet speak without set tones or inflections, taking the words as they come to hand in tho most natural and unaffected manner. Americans are accused of too great use. of tho head tones, giving their speech a nasal quality unpleasant to the ear. Thero is doubtless something of this in America, bat it is almost entirely confined to rural localities. It is rare in deed in cidtivatod persons. But it can also be noticed among certain classes in England, whiio the nasal sounds peculiar to their lan guage compel tho French to pitch the voice entirely in tho roof of the mouth or in the nasal assaes. In America that part of tho responsibility for the nasal twang which is not inherited from the psalm-singing and conventicle-haunting Independents through their dependents, the Puritans, may be per mitted to rat with tbe climate and want of intellectual culture. This peculiarity may bo sot nH against tho dropped h's with which tho str.ets of Loudon may be fairly said to be paved an omission not confined to tho ignorant classes, but to those who aro well to-do and claim to bo educated and re-tli:e.L-San Francisco Chronicle. f;iat it l.ocut Army Can Do.

It is as tiresome to us as for a Jap to sit on a chair, bat by occasionally moving our be numbed limbs, we managed to get through vcrv comfortably. It would doubtless be interesting to relate what we had for din ner, as our hill of far was certainly twelve feet long) But it would be impossible for me to tell what most of the dishes were, as they were not recognisable, and our in terpreters, even, could not tell us what all were in English, As to tbeir taste, well, that was also indescribable in most cases! We were hungry, but we ate little. How ever, that is quite the proper thing, as the Japanese themselves never eat much at those parties. In this they show most ex cellent jedgment, for if they even tasted of eacn dLh set before them they could scarcely live twenty-four hours afterward. But all that is not eaten at each guest's place is sent to bis house the following day as a matter of couxUay. This, also, is a good idea; because what be dared not taste at the feast ha might attempt in tha privacy of his own home, where be could expsctoraSo what was not to his liking without ouVsding his host As no dish is removed after being set before the guests, our end of the room looked like a crockery shop before we wars half through, and the goodly quantities: that remained untouched were sent to oar bote! the next morning, where.
