AMERICAN SECOND REGIMENT BAND. CABXITAL AND WAIB. Interesting; Entertainment at the Chnrch of the HeMlah. Notwithstanding the stomy weather last evening a large number of people gathered at the Church of the Mes siah parlors to attend the carnival and fair which began there last evening, The rooms are very handsomely decor ated. There are booths representing eaott month m the year. The booths are presided over by several young ladles. A large number of different wares of beauty and utility are ottered for sale. A fine entertainment was also given. A quartet from the Trinity M. E. church rendered several beauti tul selections. Miss May Pendleton, the talented elocutionist, recited two Selections, which were received with great applause. fThe plants, which lent additional at traction to the scene, were kindly loaned by Mr, Moore, tine florist. The Gulnea-Hen-Cnder-a-Gate Woman From the San Franolsco Inmress.! There Is living in one of our eastern - cities a physician so distinguished that tils name is known and honored abroad hardly less than at home, and whose specialty is the treatment of nervous diseases, ohlefly those of women. Twenty or thirty years of this order of work have resulted in a series of gen eralizations as to causes hereditary. climatic and otherwise as well as a classification of types, innumerable gradation of which have passed un der his hands. There, are moments in his practice in which the extremity of aggravation has been brought about. when he promises a detailed hlBtory(of hysteria with illustratlonsrawn from life, and w&rnfilfiV for wnnmnklnrt at large to shut down the gates leading into una iana or nigntmare and delu sion, and from which even the rarest find escape a problem. With one or two of his reasons as to whs, nervous prostration and the overworked, over wrought American woman are necessa rlbr synonymous, the "Art of Livlnor" is n good time to deal. ' To-day It is with one of hid tones, at tha montlnn of which he has been known to shut : his eyes and put his fingers in his earsv and dance a wild war-dance about his Office; the type recorded lh a notebook, clearly not medical in Its nature, as -Tne oumea-Hen-under-a-Gate Wo man." There was no need of exnlnnn.. tion. From Maine to MIohigan, wher ever the- New Englander has wan- dered, what has come to be known as "the American voice" has nernptiinted itself, and If in any degree recognized by the hearers thereof, set down as the natural erreot of American climate But the traveler recalls that thrniurh. out the entire south, from the poorest cracker up to the stateliest of southern dames, there is a quality of tone, less distinct and rich than that marking tne beautiful voices of English women but no less musical. Evidently, then Anrorionn nllnmto la nnt Vi& nnir and as one notes the fact that there is a difference of several rtpoxooa in tha pitch, it becomes evident that however this has been brought about, it stands as cnier cause for the result accom plished. ThA 'human throat an airu complex mechanism of the vocal or gans are practically the same for all, im iur umiy uses can: pe compelled to renaer a satisfactory result. " , "I am ashamed tn -, vwua,mo. sau t Boston woman, discussing: these facti "that till I lived in London. T .,,, allzed in full the terror of many of our ew jungiana voices. Cultivated peo, pie do not shriek, and one is so unac customed to even think very much whether a voice Is agreeable or not that I had let this ntias nf life m .1 .together; and this in spite of the fact that , we were a musical family. But xnose noi, smooth voices, that olear, pure articulation that you get front the really cultivated Englishwoman, was a revelation. Their methods of life meant part of it their out-of-door life aun a mi; dux, on tne other hand, it struck me that we. too were rational at '. points, and more so than they. We Vers keyed to a higher pitch, in every way, and I mads up my mind at once that there Was less wear and tear in their method than ours; and that, as far as temperament would let me, their way should be mine." My friend paused, and looted reflec tively at nte! 'That was twenty years ago,", she went on, "and, I look back upon the struggle with wonder that ! ever undertook It. 'I had used nothing but head notes since I was born, and Jf I grew ex'ctte4 . Irani perfectly aware that a bagpipe, at Its worst, couM not hold a more ear-piercing rasp. How I did it I don't know; but you see I did It, and. If there had been anybody In my youth with a gleam of sense, not only mlgljt I -have been spared the trouble In my own case,' but transmit ted abetter, thins; to my children. For the New Englander,.! count It the apologetic wail for being; alive at an that marked the Puritan ra, and lln- v gers still, for ths rest of us, the most of as Americans,' it is partly obtuse jwss, partly Ignorance, and we are Just waking to a sense of both. Travel Is giving a standard of comparison, and better living I adding- a more suscep. tlble set of wear oords. But If I could have my way, every child should be trained In such fashion that slipshod, lurrjng, unmusical speech would be Impossible. Tilt this Is accomplished ws are not a cultivated people, nor, without It, can a million common schools make us so." TBX LAW AM TO riKDlSOa. Sons of tl Legal Rotations of Voter and Find (From the Youth's Companion.! The finding of concealed wealth Is now an went of rare occurrence, ex cept In tale of romance and adven ture. It was once not unoommon. For when civilisation was comparatively rude and the ways of keeping valua bles were imperfect, the earth was a favorite hiding place for treasures, es pecially In times of wafer invasion, The title to such valuables when dls covered has been often the subject of dispute. Money, gold, sliver or plate found hidden in the earth or in a se cret place Is termed treasure trove from the French trover, to And. Such treasure, according to the law of Eng land, was the property of the king, and In this country, strictly speaking, once belonged to the state In which It was found; but the title of the state ha not for a long time, If ever, been strongly asserted against a finder. Lost article of value found upon the surface of the earth, or in the sea. are. iso far as concerns every ojhe but the owner, tne property of the one who nnds them. If they are afterward tak. en from him bx another, the finder can reclaim them as if he were the owner, a chimney sweeper's boy llvlnsr in England more than one hundred years ago had the fortune to find a Jewel of unusual value. He took it to a gold smith, who, after looking at and welch ing it, tried to buy it from the boy for a timing- sum. The lad refused the offer. the goldsmith returned to him the set ting, but would not give back the gem Upon the trial of an action brought by the Doy agalnBt the goldsmith, the value of the Jewel was concealed by the goldsmith, and he was directed by the court to pay the boy the price of the finest Jewel which could be fitted to the setting. This Incident resulted in settling forever the right of a finder to the possession of his findings. In order to give the finder such claim, however, the article must have been truly lost.- If it had been simply mislaid or put in a particular place by the owner and afterward left there through his carelessness it Is not legal ly lost A lady who leaves her purse on the counter of a shop where she has been trading cannot be said to have lost It, and if the purse is afterward picked up by another the proprietor of tne snop 19 said to have a better right to hold It than the one who found It, But if the purse had been accidentally dropped on the floor of the premises and afterward found there by a cus tomer, that would have been a real case of losing and the customer If the owner, cannot be. found. would, have as much right to keep the purse as if he had found it in the street. In order to be a finder one must be aware that he has the thing In his possession and he must show an Intention of keeping it. The purchaser of an old secretary or bureau sometimes finds put away in a secret drawer money or jewels long for gotten. To whom do they belong? The seller did not know that they were there and showed no intention of claim, ing them when the furniture was in his possession.' They cannot,, therefore, belong to him, but are rightly claimed by the person who first discovers them, whether he be the purchaser, a servant or any one else who Is not a trespasser. To keep what one has found is not an absolute but a special right, which the true owner may dispute , by demanding his property and proving his claim to it to the reasonable satisfaction of the person who holds it When the owner has offered a definite reward, the finder may keep the lost article unless the re. ward is paid to him. But he cannot demand a reward where none is of fered, nor can he hold the lost property as security for any expense incurred In keeping It, though he would be en titled to be paid by the owner for such outlay. One who Is so fortunate as to find what belongs to another must always1 act honestly and with jvhat the law calls "good , faith" -toward, the owner. If at the time of the finding he knows. or has the means 'of knowing, or be lieves he can find out who the owner Is, and makes no effort to- discover him, but Intentionally keeps or disposes of the lost property, the law regards him no better than a thief. On the other hand, if the owner does not appear, the finder acquires, at com, mon law, an absolute title to the thing found, though by statute some of the states have In various ways limited and regulated the gaining of such a ti tle. - " '-; .1 :: V - For Holy Orders. ' Mr. John E. Sorncamp, who assisted in St Paul's P. E, Sunday school last year, being then a student In the Tale Theological seminary, has become a candidate for holy orders in Massachu setts, and a student at the Cambridge Divinity school. Mr. Darilel W., Wright, of Ohio, formerly a student In the Yale seminary, confirmed at St Paul's In 1898, is also a' student at our Divinity school in Cambridge. A MODBBlf KBIT'S COMPAST- The Romance of Old-TImo- Seafaring Ufa . ao (oarer Exists. Edward Porter in the Philadelphia Times, My earliest and strongest' impres sions of sea-faring' life were gained by watching the evolutions of her majes ty's ship Pinafore as she. lay in the dry dock In . Philadelphia, and, al though my ideals have been somewhat shaken by seeing the' deck hands of the transatlantic steamersv I detained the notion that the counterparts of my old friends would be found aboard sail ing vessels. , But that dream ta over. The first shock came soon after leaving port, when I told the captain that he was to teach me how tp dance the hornpipe.- He said that he didn't know How, and mpreoYetv; bad 'never seen any on who did. I replied that I was not from ths country, but b solemnly aonured m that he was telling the truth, and called upon ths second mats to boar him witness, Ths latter, after much reflection, recollected that lis had once known a sailor who could dancs a hornpipe, but couldn't remem ber whether It was on a voyage to ths Kant Indie or while be was "In steam" on ths Mississippi. Further Inquiry proved that no on els had evor wit noised such a performance.' This was not the most blttsr disap pointment, however. ,1 am not a great lover of minao, but it seemed to me to be a nessary part of a altofi exist ence that he should sosrsper merrily about and pour forth th gladness of his heart In song. To be sure, they do make a noise when they pull en th rope, and aooaslonally, burst into a dirge while t pump, but 'to both of these performances th cry of the pen guin 1 cheerful by comparison. Indeed,. I have come to ths melan choly conclusion that th flavor of ro mance evaporated with th last gene ration of Seamen.-' There Is none of that picturesque Idleness which I was led to believe was as essential -as- the song and dance. Were one of them to write his dally life, It would be expres sive of more energy than Mark Twain's famous diary, but would partake of the same simplicity. It would read "Worked, ate and slept" Work begin when they are driven aboard by their respective keeper and cease when the vessel arrives at her destination, so that the time occupied In eating and sleeping Is their only respite. ' In heavy and squally weather there are the con slant pulling of ropes and the furling and unfurling of sails. It Is then that their abilities In that monkey-like ac complishment of climbing the rigging are tested. As you stand on deck in a heavy gale and watch all hands upon one of the yardarms furling a sail, you begin to put some faith In Darwin's theory concerning the origin of man' kind. In fine weather their duties are of a different sort they then turn painters, carpenters and Jacks-of-all trades.. "Holy-Btonlng," scraping, painting and varnishing go on until the ship looks as If she were Just off the dry dock. Sometimes in an idle moment or In fit of temporary Insanity, a sailor, de. cides to wash a shirt or a red bandana, One day during a heavy rain this mad ness became epidemic, and after clos Ing the "scrappers" all hands got upon the deck and proceeded to wash their clothes with a small piece of soap with a large question mark. Occasionally would hear that a man had taken bath, but of the truth of these reports I have no actual knowledge. Were they as well treated on all ves sels as they were on the Standard they might possibly learn to take care of themselves when ashore. Is Is Indeed, a case of out of the. frying-pan Into th fire, for when they escape form the-rule of more or less severe ship-masters they have not the sense to keep Out of the .way; of boardlng-hoijae runners and the like., If they would only keep their wits about them and make up . their minds to defend themselves in art hon est way, they could not fall to betted chelr.V conditions They sometimes jen tertain themselves by Shlrklng"work'at the latter -part .of the passage,' and: by damaging the rigging Just before, say ing-farewell.- . " i Their only .other amusement 1a, de rived from . weighty arguments-abou nothing. ' It .was a very frequent Oc currence to hear a heated discussion concerning the exact latitude and lon gitude of Smlthvllle, and ' to find that each of the disputants" had a different Smlthvllle In mind. Sometimes' these arguments ended with a black eye or two. . . ',' . . . ; " ' : 'i They never lose the sheep-like , ap pearance with which they come aboard, going about in a flock at the beck and call of the officers.' The watch may be forward pulling at some ropes ,wlien they hear "Come aft, two o' yer,''-and immediately replying "Come aft, two o yer," they shuffle In a body in that di rection, in. nothing are sailors more obliging than in regard to their names. It matters not what thev are cabled 'I Tom, Dick, Harry, all are the same to them as long as each have a separate one. When two happen' to claim the same name on their arrival, each tries to outdo the other in nobly sacrificing it to, .his companion. Truly they are belieters in the poetical theory con cernlng the rose and can see nothing In a name. While the crew are by no means to be envied, their lives are happy com pared with that of the cook. He has always to contend, of course, with the absence of fresh provisions, and In rough weather his existence is made miserable by his efforts to keep his pots and kettles on the galley range. The captain, however, is the one most to be pitied. Even more than the sail ors must he be a Jack of all trades; and besides that a master one. To his oth, er duties are added the no less: peril ous ones of a dispenser of patent med icines and Of a justice of the peace. It Is the responsibility of his position that makes his - life uncomfortable. .-The nrst ana second mates stana -waton and watoh," and of course relieve him from the actual work, so that in fine weather, If It so pleases him, he need do nothing but eat 'and sleep. But in rough or equally weather he must sleep with his shoes on and if he be of a nervous temperament, with his heart In his mouth ready for a;sud rton rft11 J ' j . i? ' - Bringing up the rear in the , ship's company came the animals. Besides a pig, we left) port with an army of chick ens, cats and rats of which the latter were by far the most numerous. The chickens went all too soon the cats de parted save two, but the rats remained faithful to us.- The surviving cats were natives of Boston, and showed a great fondness for baked beans and brown bread. It was Just a well that, their comrades did not live, for they were all possessed with hearty appetites,; and doubtless ' would have proved a?, very severe tax upon "our ; supply bf"Jfovi sions.

Stocks opened firmer, ths' Drexel-Morgan circular on Erie matters not having borne out the statements mads yesterday about a heavy sseasmnit on the common stock of that road. A number of roads re ported their earnings for the first week of December, and as a rule they were favorable. Ths loss in earning of the St Psul was slightly under $38,000, making the best weekly rWurn Issued by the company for a long time. The Improvement at the start was equal to HOT, but it wa soon lost, owing to a raid or Manhattan, which carried that stock down to 103. Louisville and Nashville also displayed weakness and fell to 63. The drive at Manhattan was based on an unfounded rumor that the company Intended to reduce the dividend rate. When It was armoun cied, howwer, that the regular rate had been declared and that the com pany had earned Its full 6 per cent, after allowing: for the disputed claim of $263,000, the stock quickly rose to 105H(4.
