The general belief is that It la a little larger than that. Bishop Taylor says there Is a distill ery in Liberia which the natives call the "Good Jesus Faotory," so closely in their minds Is the liquor trafflo associat ed with Christianity. A Manchester (England) man carries pn his person a complete pickpocket alarm system. Removal of his watch, pin or other Jewelry causes the ringing ef a bell. The electric plant weighs twenty-two ounces. 'According to present indlcationthe treasury deficit at the end of the cur rent month will be about 7,000,000 greater than the deficit which Secre tary Carlisle estimated would be found at the end of the fiscal year next tTune. Vienna is stirred up over the refusal of the minister of education to appoint Professor Franz Brentano, the psychol ogist, to the vacant chair of philosophy In the university there, notwithstand ing the recommendation of the faculty. Professor Brentano was a Catholic priest and professor at Wurzburg, but resigned his pofessorship and gave up his priesthood when the declaration of Papal Infallibility was made. In 1874 he was called as professor to Vienna, where he remained six pears, when he became engaged to be married. There upon he was told by the minister of education that he could not retain his place; he was allowed, however, to re main as a private docent, performing In substance all the duties of a pro fessor. The present action is looked upon as a sign of the clerical reaction Which is spreading over Austria. Bishop J. P. Newman denies a story published In a Baptist paper that he baptised General Grant when the latter was unconscious. He says the General was in full possession of all his facul ties when the rite was administered; and he adds: "A few days after this memorable event I spent two hours (with General Grant in religious conver sation, and asked him If he recalled the scenes of his baptism, to which he replied: 'Yes, perfectly; and as you came Into the room, I wondered why they had called you at that hour of the night.' To my remark, 'All thought you bad not five minutes to live,' he gave this characteristic answer: 'I knew I iwas very low, but I did not intend to die; my work is not done; three times I Siave been raised from the valley and Shadow of death.' During four months be lived and suffered; reviewed his first volume and wrote the second volume of that great monumental work, which re Sects his fine literary taste and the no bility of his character." A French paper on' the subject of the tastes and wardrobe of feminine royalties pays that Margherita.queen if Italy.is de moted to white and that of the queen regent of Spain, on the other hand, accomplished in all things, Is always dressed with the elegant simplicity of a woman of taste. The simplest of all European sovereigns is the queen of the Belgians, who prefers a quiet, domes tic life to the limited existence of roy alty, regarding expensive dressing as an unpleasant but necessary adjunct to court festivities. Since the tragic death of the Crown Prince Rudolph, the em press of Austria has worn the deepest and heaviest black, occasionally ap pearing in gowns of black and white commingled. The Princess of Wales avoids colors, and has given a vogue to the tailor-made serge, with a high collar, which is invariably her day dress.: In the evening her royal high ness makes up for the plainness and (simplicity of the day by wearing the most- RUDerb gowns and jewels. And the same authority says that the em press of Russia dresses as simple as her sister, the Princess of Wales, Curing the day, wearing the rich nation al costume for evening receptions or Official funotlons. i The Danes have not , wasted much time in their creation of the large free bort of .Copenhagen, which was design ed, 4U p, counter-move to the German canal between the North Be and the Baltic. In the spring of 1891 the gov ernment and Parliament agreed upon a law which made over to a private association founded for the purpose an area of about 100 acres of land and) 70 acres of water to constitute free terri tory "within which ships might come and go and land and take cargo, and merchandise of all sorts might be ware housed, treated, and manufactured without let or hindrance) from the Dan ish customs." Three basins, SI feet, 264 feet, and 244 feet deep respectively, have been laid out with spacious quays and wharves, and all the most modern mechanical appliances for facilitating the loading and unloading of ships. Warehouses of the latest type have been erected, and plots of land are available for hire or purchase on which factories for the treatment and manu facture of goods can be built, either by Danes or by foreigners. The whole is surrounded by a double Iron railing which forms the Danish customs fron tier, and along this boundary rows of model workmen's houses are already springing up for the . laboring popula tion which will find employment within the precincts of the free harbor. The total cost of the undertaking, wnicn has been completed within the brief period of three and a half years, has not exceeded the original estimate of 10,000,000 kroner (540,000), a figure which speaks well for the soundness or. xne scheme and the. economy with which It has been carried into execution. A SIO-V Of THE 11MES. One of the cheering signs of the times is the result of tne Dig saie oi domestic cotton goods that took place in New Tork the other day. It was a forced sale, and twenty-seven thousand packages were disposed of. Buyers were present from all the large cities of the United States between Maine and the Pacific coast, and the eagerness to purchase was proven by the fact that the twenty-seven thousand caBes and bales containing an aggregate of some thirty million yards were auctioned off in seven hours. The aggregate oDtainea from the sale exceeded two million dol lars. So spirited was the bidding that twenty-five hundred bales were sold In ten minutes. The prices obtained were within ten per cent of the list values. This indicates confidence. It also in dicates that the bottom has been reach ed in the dry goods market and that any change in prices is likely to be up ward. The sale was a good and encour aging test of business conditions. PROBMlTIOir AXD rKOSfEMTY. It is a little surprising to read that the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy tribes of Indians in Maine are not fad ing away before the civilization of the pale-face, but are actually Increasing In numbers, in intelligence and In wealth. This Interesting condition of things is not explained, but It is probably due to the fact that Maine is and has been for many years a prohibition State. Fire-water Is the deadly foe of the In dian, and wherever he can get it he Is fast falling into a drunkard's grave. But in Maine he probably cannot get the pernicious fire-water. The white man, with all his Ingenuity, can't get enough for himself, and there is none to spare for the Penobscots or the Pas samaquoddy Indians. Therefore they live and prosper, and remain noble red people. But the pale-faces of Maine must beware. If they do not obey the prohibitory law as strictly as the red faces are obliged to do the red-faces may yet get ahead of them and own the State. It would be an impressive result of prohibition in Maine if by reason of it the State should fall back into the hands of its original owners. But much property has changed hands through Indulgence in rum, and much more will. The waxing of the Penob scots and the Passamaquoddlans ap pears to be the strongest kind of argu ment for the efficacy of prohibition in Maine' and it Is also the strongest kind of argument in favor of a complete ob servance of the law by the whites. A GOOD WORD 1TOB TUB WHEEL. People have been having so much real, honest enjoyment with the bicycle that it has been thought necessary to remind them that there is a fly in the ointment which has healed so many of their wounds. So doctors, including some of the learned foreign doctors who know more than anybody else could possibly know, . have discovered that the bicycle is a foe to good health, and one disease caused by it bag been labeled withsuchalongand awful name that a bicycle rider would be justified in riSing away from it with all pos sible speed. But now comes the New York Academy Of Medicine and dis agrees with those doctors who have tried to puncture the pneumatic tire. Dr. Graeme M. ' Hammond made a re port to the. Academy of his investiga tion of bicycling and bycyclers. He said he had! made a Careful examination of fourteen professional and fourteen amateur riders. In the fourteen cases of amateurs examined, there were men who had ridden from five to fif teen years, and from five thousand to twenty-seven thousand miles. : The men who had ridden a great deal ex hibited a cardiac hypertrophy and an Increased lung capacity. The great, chest expansion of the average man was, one Jnon; while the average ex- panslon In these amateur blcy do riders was one and four-sevenths Inches. There could be no doubt that the use of the bloycle Induced a condl tlon of cardiac and pulmonary develop. ment. In the fourteen professional riders examined, seven of whom were among the first In the country, Dr. Hammond did not find a solitary case of deformity of the spinal column, These men Invariably ride with their body bent over the handle of the wheel. All the riders thus examined were found to be well built and mus cular, with excessive development of the thigh. The average chest develop ment was one and three-seventh Inches, Dr. Hammond declared that certain diseased conditions of the heart were benefited by bicycle riding. The use of the wheel was also good for those troubled with gout and diabetes. Good enough. More heart and more lung are what are wanted. Therefore roll on, O bicycle, and get more heart and more lung, O rider of the bicycle. It would also be well If the roads could be made better and the price of a good blcvcle brought down to fifty dollars or less. They 'say a good bicycle can be bought In Paris for fifteen dollars, Don't Walt I'll! Easter. Though Easter Is the time when many new bonnets and hats have their first showing, Christmas this year is to take rank as a gala day for millinery display and will rival the spring holi day. Indeed, the number of quite dif ferent types of headgear which midwin ter is going to see fashionable is so great that the matter of choosing from them Is quite a task. In this sort of a situation there is one advantage, however, and that is that everyone should be well suited In the end. In all the shapes and trimmings there is no more conspicuous feature than the rich plumes. There Is no end of ways to apply them, that pictured here be ing a rather original one and one that Is best suited to a young and rather large featured face. Made of moss green felt, the brim Is edged with black velvet and has a roll of the same In side. The back Is turned up and Is held In place by a velvet rosette, while the garniture consists of six plumes two on either side, and two upright in front, the latter fastened with a paste buckle. A twisted roll of velvet comes around the low crown. Next to the plumes In general use come violets. These are more worn than ever, and the fact that artificial ones can be bought for a few cents a bunch makes no difference with weal thy folk, who buy end wear them, too. After the hat is all finished a bunch of glowing violets may be tucked under the brim and be only an improvement; when the collar is complete, a bunch of violets tucked against the neck at each will only make it the prettier; a big bunch may then be added at the breast, and the effect will be charming. Some of the bonnets of the hour are so odd as to appear to be windmills set on spinning wheels. The windmill is of loops of ribbon, the spinning wheel an openwork cf brilliants. Like strange expressions of the milliner's ingenuity are so frequent, that the most sedately minded woman is in danger of appear ing like the orowned queen of Sheba. But she will think nothing of It, so or nate and bejewelled' are the current dress bonnets. . . FLORETTB. SOXE HOZIDAT BOOKS. "Wayside Poems."
