"Are you willing to trust them with samples?" the chewing gum man was asked. He admitted that the point had received consideration and that all necessary safeguards would be employed. The Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and tfce Princess of Wales are out. The latter lady couldn't get her bonnet on to suit her the .other,, day and was late at a concert given at Daly's the ater, where several of her sister-ln-law's, the Princess Beatrice, songs were to be1 sung. The new-crowned duchess, flrho felt insulted at being kept wait ing, Just slipped out of the theater Shaking with wrath because royal etiquette was so shamefully abused. Worse than this scrimmage between the two ladles was the fact that, after all, neither of them heard the royal ongs, so Beatrice got her dander up at the discourtesy and has appealed to "'mamma" to avenge her. Germany has for years had the most Efficient pigeon service in Europe. At ,8trasburg there are COO birds, at Metz 800, at Thorn 1,000, and they are kept by the hundreds at other centers, such as Mainz, Cologne, Kiel and Danzig. The whole frontier is connected by pigeon post with the military head quarters and with towns xin the interior. The service is supported by an appro priation of about $9,000 a year. The practical use of the pigeon post was ifully demonstratc(i at the siege of Paris In 1870. Since then it has become a recognized part of the military organi sation of all Europeon countries except Great Britain. Russia has now on her Polish frontier alone 3,000 birds, and ap propriates nearly $10,000 for pigeons; the French appropriation is twice as large. The State department at Washington la considerably troubled with the care of certain large packing cases piled up In the cellar of the building marked The Vatican, Rome, Italy." They con tain the priceless manuscripts and relics of Columbus lent by His Holiness the Pope to the Columbian exposition. Through an arrangement made with the American minister to the Italian court, the Columbus collection was brought to the United States on board an Ameri can Bian-Of-war, and a guarantee was liven that it should be returned to the sroper place In Rome by the 8ame piethbd of transportation. Unfortunate ly, however, It has been impossible up lo this time to return these articles to he rightful owner from the fact that American men-of-war have not been re ceiving order which would take them )n the vicinity of the historic seven hilled city.

Many persona have been made of porno hh retaining lii their poaaeaalon female terrapin menaurlng lex than Ave Inches from knuckle to knuckle, contrary to the statute, the penalty for which In a line of not lens than fiO or more than $f0, or Imprisonment of not less thun live or more than ten. days for the drat elcure, and a line of not leas than $70 or more than $HK), or by Imprisonment of not lea tlinn twenty days or more than thirty days for the second of fence. The profit! of the terrapin catchera nro ho great that they are will ing to run the risk of fine and Impris onment In carrying on their Illegal buslncaa. To Illustrate, one man who hns n pen near Savannah shipped north recently 1.S00 terrapins, which cost him from $4 to $5 a dozen. He realized on them a profit of from $8 to $10 a dozen. It Is said that "the acts of the legisla ture for the protection of terrapin are among the worst and moat lnsulllclent thnt were passed by that body. The negroes, who are the chief collectors of terrapin, sometimes trail them In the marshes with trained dogs, who bay them until a captor comes up with his bag. They get from 40 to 50 cents apiece for them from the speculators. A female terrapin will lay from eight to ten eggs at a Utter, and they are said to have bcvcrnl litters during the year if not inercepted before they deposit their eggs In some favorable spot for hatching." TUB IXCO.VE TAX. Unless the president vetoes the perfid ious and dishonorable tariff bill the In come tax provision of It will begin to work on January 1, 1895, and continue to work until January 1, 1900. A two per cent, tax Is to be levied on all in comes above $4,000. It is to be paid not only by all who reside within the coun try on Income derived from any source, but by citizens of the United States re siding abroad, and by all residents of foreign countries on incomes derived from property situated In the United States or from business carried on here. The tax is on the income of the year previous to that for which- it is levied. Therefore the first tax will be levied on incomes received in 1894. There are two classes of incomes rec ognized by the bill the incomes c-f in dividuals and the incomes of orpora tlons. The taxable Income of a corpor ation is all its income above its operat ing expenses, including the sums paid to shareholders. The tax of 2 per cent, is paid by the corporation. Therefore that part of an individual's income which is derived from dividends on the shares of a corporation that has paid the tax is deducted, on his return, from his own taxable income. There are ex emptions allowed by the bill in comput ing an individual's income besides the $4,000. They are as follows: The neces sary expenses of conducting a business, all interests paid or due within the year, local taxes, losses in trade or from fires, storms or shipwrecks, not compensated for by insurance or other wise; worthless debts, and income on which the tax has been paid by corpor ations. As to corporations, charitable, religious and educational corporations are exempted, as are states, counties and municipalities, building and loan associations, savings banks having no stockholders, receiving no more than $1,000 in. a year from any one depositor, and dividing all the yearly profits among, the depositors except a contribu tion to a 10 per cent, surplus. Mutuai companies, including insurance com panies, are all exempt. If the bill becomes a law there will be some interesting performances, as there were In the time of the last in come tax In this country. The tax will not be popular and It will not be paid where it can be .evaded. It will greatly decrease prosperity, in ap pearance, and greatly Increase decent and dishonesty, in reality. It will be felt that the tax is a very unjust and inequitable one, and those who have to pay it will do so with great reluctance, A CURIOUS QVESTIOX. It is left for aiwoman to ask the fol lowing questions, which she does in the New York Sun: "Will we ever see the day that a new gown will fall to bring out all the devilishness there is in a woman? As we come of crooked bone must we always show the crooked nature?" What does this mean? It has been generally believed, hasn't it, that wo man Is never better than when she is prancing about in new and elegant clothes? The general idea is that when thus prancing she is well satisfied with herself, that her satisfaction with her self gives her peace.and that out of that peace spring beautiful flowers of kind ness, good-will, tolerance and courtesy. When woman puts on a fine new dress and goes to church is she ever better? Does she not know that she will be an attractive part of the meeting, and does she not endeavor therefore to do as much good as she can by being as at tractive as she can? Does she not real ize that she must wear her nice new dress In such a way as not to Indicate that she has any pride jn ft, and does not her endeavor to conceal her prida put her In a most' beneficial state of Hjnd ?. Roes she wS, teAtbot hr clo.th.es are a fitting tribute to the occasion, and dors alio not look upon herself at doing the beat she can for the cause of reunion by looking o well aa ahe can? I aueh a frame of mind aa thla devlllah? Is it not ruther angelic? And na it la In church la It not ao else where? la woman ever more pleasant, more uiiHelflah, more content and more contenting than when she haa new clothes on that do JuMlce to heraelf and to her contumer? When bo clothed Is It not laid upon her to har monize with her clothe", and doea not that necessity Improve her mind, her manners and her morals? Where does .the devlllshnesa come In In the new clothes of woman? la It not Juat the other way? Is not woman na IovIIIhIi us she ever cun be when she is compelled to go about In old clothes, when ahe knows that she Is not dressed in a manner befitting her beauty and atyle? la it not then that she Is apt to allow evil spirits to take up their abode In her heart, which would be closed to them If ahe felt satisfied with her ap pearance? Is she as plenaant and good to those who love her when she li con scious that she doesn't look well? Can she keep free from envy when she sees other women who don't know how to wear clothes with more new clothes than they can wear? And does not her dissatisfaction with her appearance lead to a general unsettlement of her mind. her manners and at least her minor morals? Can she teach, preach.love or ride a bicycle as gloriously and effec tively in old clothes as in new? The philosophy of clothes Is profound. as Carlyle has pointed out, and there may be more in it than even he saw. But the Idea of a woman that new clothes bring out theevlllshness of woman's nature is a startling one and needs careful examination before adop tion by philosophers. Perhaps the idea is one of those intuitions for which women have been justly celebrated ever since Eve had an intuition that the old serpent was a good adviser, but as no proof is offered that the idea or in tuition is correct male philosophers may well argue awhile before accepting it, especially as it is hostile to the' long and well established theory that woman Is as good as she looks..

Representative Breckinridge Of Ar kansas, recently appointed minister to Russia, possesses, among other accomp lishments, one that will tickle the pal ate and touch the heart of the Czar in a way that is sure to establish ami cable relations between the Bear- and the Eagle at once.

Jonah's Lot la a lUrtlOne WhemetTtokli Fortune Tomtb Him. From the New York Tribunal It Is no wonder that men who "follow the races" believe In "hoodooa" and "Jonahs." There are people who, when about to make a bet will turn away from a bookmaker's stand If they see1 a "hoodoo ' In front of It. Intending to bet on a certain horse they change their plans Instantly, and would not touch that horse with a ten foot pole when they learn that a "Jonah" baa made a bet on him. They condemn their luck when they meet a "hoodoo," and they shiver when they see btm making a bet for fear It should be on their horse. Now the writer does not believe In 'hoodoo," but he does know a man who has an astonishing faculty for "being on the. wrong." He la well known to the public as. an opera singer. Born where the sun shines with warmth, his heart glows with enthusiasm. His friends like him for his excess of ela tion, and for his deep, mournful, en shrouding despair when he Is gloomy. They like him because he la so warmly attached to his friends.and so satanlcal Iy opposed to his enemies. They ad mire his enthusiasm, they are proud of his loyalty, they delight in his singing, and they applaud his faith in the im possible. But they weep when he tries to pick a winner. A man who does not often go to the race track meets him early In the sea son. He stands against a supporting post of the grand stand. A melancholy light plays on his dark face, and a deep fire burns .In his eye. There 'ia a sad, reminiscent expression arotlndhls. pliant mouth. "How are you, signor; what luck?" says his friend. "I sue them,!' he answers briefly. . "Sue them?., Sue whom?" "It ees robbairee," he answers, cast ing his dark glance longingly in the di rection of Singling. "What is?" . "Yes," he said with a deep sigh, "I bet on Faithless. After I get my ticket they scr-r-r-atch him! Yes, I get. not even any money for my run. Ah ha! J sue them!" Making another trip to the track, the friend finds the signor pacing the; walk after the first, race. . His eye is gleam ing savagely. Now and then he cateh-t es his breath quickly. His dark face is almost pale. : "Ah, ha!" he cries, dramatically, catching sight of his friend, "have you seen him?" . . "Seen him?" "Yes, my horse. He ees a sure ween er, and he has been leave at the post! That star-r-r-ter! Ah, ha! He eannot star-r-r-rt horse car! Yet another time and the slgnors face has changed. A bright light flash es from his eye. his mouth is wreathed with smiles and his white teeth show brilliantly as his Hps part in ecstacy. "Ah, signor, you have won a Det: "Yes, I have ween. He ees a sure I have a ticket thing. I know it wen. in the mutu-el." Two minutes later a black cioua dd- scures his brow. His eyes have a steely Slitter. ' ' Ah, ha! Have you seen n cries. 'Seen what?". That mu,tu-el ticket," he says, grind ing his teeth. "He pay me tnirty-nve cents! All the world buy him!". .., Yet another day and anotner track find the undaunted signor, faithful to his position at the track. "Ah, ha!" he cries, with a burning glance, "have you seen it; "I just got 'here, signor, Haven't seen anything." "Atrophine! Have you seen Mm. He hurt his leg in the raee, and I have bet ort him!" ' Still another time the signor and his friend meet. This time It was not at the racetrack, but in Broadway. He is striding along with an impatient step. His arms swing rapidly, his lips are closed tightly, the fire in his eye it deep red. 1 "Ah, ha!" he cries, espying his friend, and clutching his arm in a fierce grip, "have you seen it?" "Haven't seen a thing to-day, signor. Too busy to see anything. What is it?" "I have the teethache," he says grim ly. "I cannot go to the track. And here have you seen it? Ah, ha!

Green apples twenty-five cents per bushel. Salt placed on the fret list. In these two lines the result of a care ful study of the senate tariff bill ia to bt ' found, when considered In their relations to tbelr bearings upon each other, a powerful argument against the passage of that bill aa It stands to-day. We have had a great deal of Jabber ing and lowering about sugar, coal and Iron. It la over these that the two houses of congress have locked horns. It Is concerning these that the presl-dent-of the United States has fulminat ed his protesting thunder. An agree ment -upon these by the conference committee means a quick enactment of the bill, without further contention Into a law. And yet there It stands, unchallenged and even unnoticed: Green apples-'twenty-ftve cents per bushel. Salt placed on the free list. " We have heard much regarding the alleged discriminative lines upon which this bill was constructed discrimina tion In favor of one section against an other, of this Industry against that, But no one has yet pointed out the great, the Bhameless, the outrageous discrimination so cruelly proved by two lines. Green apples twenty-five cents per bushel. ' Salt placed on the free list. It Is the crowning discrimination oi the age the discrimination of sex, dis crimination of power against asplra- .tion, the discrimination of arrogance against advancement, the discrimina tion of man against woman. In these two simple lines are em braced the wrong, the oppression, the tyranny of the centuries through which man has usurped position and power over the prostrated and tram pled forms of the chattels he is pleased to call his "women folks." In these two simple lines is comprehended the injustice of generations which has pre cipiated the conflict of the coming cen tury uppn the casus belli which that In justice has warped Into the brain of woman that man is her worst enemy. It is perfectly patent that men drew up this tariff bill; that they drew it up for men, and against women. Its train ers were willing enough to abolish the duties on Bait Salt is one of the neces saries of man's life, no less than wo man's.' He needs it 'when he makes sardines and anchovies out of young herring and chubs; he needs it when he cures his meats and cans his vege tables; he needs it in nearly every thing which he, gross slave of the stom ach.: nags his wife into putting on the table. He cannot untax salt for man and; tape It for woman; so he4s com pelled out of his own selfishness, to al low woman to have free salt. But; he makes It up on green apples! Green apples-and-salt in one dish. strange to say, for which he does hot' care. Furthermore, it is a dish for which woman does not care very much. Result: Man's salt untaxed; woman's green-apples-and-ealt twenty-five cents per bushel. It is all "of a piece with the one-sex domination, which the advanced woman Is how daring to challenge. The house was -more generous. Fresh from the people and more faithfully reflecting the modern spirit of liberality and prop gresslvenesB, it placed green apples as well as salt on the free list. But the' senate, that moribund ' junta oi masculine crustaceans.promptly socked a duty Of twenty-flve cents per bushel on green apples while willingly accept ing the benefits of free salt, straight we trust that the house will never yield.' It has taken Its stand for the right. Having set Its face' toward free green-apples-and-salt, let it never look backward, to become Itself, in the march of advancement, a fosslliferoua pillar of mere salt. Let it remember thai; great principle is at stake, and if nothing else will keep it from falter ing in the fight let fit bear in mind that her views on taxed green-apple-and-salt are about the .only views which Sarah Grand has not; Incorporated In her 'Heavenly ; Twins,' and that a victory for taxed green-apples-and-salt would in . all: probability Insure the prompt expressions of Sarah's views thereon.
