It is said that half the world's pro duction of quinine is used in the United States. Quinine Is sold by the Italian druggists at from $50 to $100 a pound, while the government gets it for the army at $5 a pound. It is proposed to make the sale of the drug a govern ment monopoly. Bicycling is respectable enough In England. The presidency of the Na tional Cyclists' union of Great Britain, iwhich has been vacant since the death cf the present earl of Albemarle's father, has been accepted by A. J. Bal four, first lord of the treasury and leader of the house of commons. John Bunyan fought on the Bound bead side during the civil war in Eng land.

The people thi.ik that a man's cleverness is gauged by the number of ways he can impro vise to borrow money. They will pledge their lands, oxen, jewelry, themselves, their children and grandchildren; and in one case a man, to obtain money to defray the expenses of his daughter's wedding, even went so far as pledging as collateral the first child born of the proposed union. The centenary of Robert Burns' ideath is going to be most appropriately celebrated in Scotland by the laying of a corner-stone of a sensible monument. 'Around a tower which is to contain relics of Burns will be erected a large number of cottages designed to shelter deserving old people who through ill luck have failed in their struggle with the world. The tower and cottages will overlook the beautiful fields where Burns plowed up the daisy and wrote his poems. One of the rarest pennies in exist fence was recently sold by auction, and knocked down for no less a sum than '250. The coin which reallzesd this large amount is a gold penny of the reign of Henry III. In the year 1257, according to a manuscript chronicle preserved among the archives of the city of London, the king ordered the Issue of a penny of the finest gold and willed that it should be current for the value of 20 pence. In the same year, however, this coin was decried. Only three other specimens are known, two being in the British museum. Professor Alexander Hogg, of Fort (Worth, Texas, trios to prove, in the Railroad Gazette, that a railroad train going eastward Is helped both by the force of the earth's revolution eastward and by the prevailing west wind. On the other hand, a train is obstructed and delayed to a corresponding extent In going west. Trials of railroad speed, to obtain the best results, should ac cordingly be from west to east. Mr. Hogg's reasoning Is supported by elab orate mathematical formulae, and his formulae are approved In the main by the Railroad Gazette as leading to the correct conclusion. The argument is further sustained by Professor E. H. Randle, of Byhalia, Mississippi, who adds that a train going west is not re tarded so much as one going east is ac celerated. As he puts it, "a train run ning east increases its centrifugal force and lightens the train." Professor Randle estimates that a train running seventy miles an hour going north or south loses two miles an hour by rea son of the rotation of the earth, "on account of pressure against the right rail." "The Amazons yonder," remarked the King of Dahomey, "appear to be firing at random." "Yes, sire," replied the chief of staff, "they cannot see the ene my." "And why not?" "They are mad at the enemy, sire." The monarch shrugged his shoulders and declared that if it wasn't for the joke-writers who would be thrown out of employ ment, he would instantly abolish the female soldiery. Detroit Tribune. iiik iiKjr, Y.tr.n srijuv. Nothing that has happened lately in Yale matters has been mure cheering than the episode of the statue-site. When it was announced that the Wuol soy memorial statue was to be placed on the playground of the Seniors there was instant rebellion ami a little an archy. Stirred seniors wont to anil fro declaiming against the established order of things, the Corporation and Fellows were charged with ty rannically disregarding a sacred tradition and abolishing a popular right, and the torch, or match, of the incendiary flamed up. "The Keds" announced that the soil saered to games should never be defaced or cumbered by a work of art and honor and there was muttering of green paint if it should become neces sary. For about a quarter of an hour it looked as i the Yale spirit wasn't exactly what It had been cracked up to be. But it was and is. Anarchy is not yet popular with those who are taught how to govern themselves and others at Yale. "The Reds" were driv en into their holes, the incendiary hid his torch, or used it to light a cigarette with, and the real Yale spirit got a grip on the situation. Then followed respec table agitation and respectful, although somewhat too humble, supplication. The Corporation and the Fellows gave gracious heed to the prayer of the pro testers, and showed they were not the tyrants they were hastily and wrongly accused oi being by picking out a site for the statue that will not interfere with anybody's games. The whole affair is a most encourag ing triumph of the real Yale spirit and of proper principles of government. How different the situation here from that at Harvard, where the bumps rais ed by the club of the law on anarchistic heads are just now painfully common and protuberant. , A QUEER Wll.L SVSTA1XEI). That is a queer will which has just been sustained by the Pennsylvania Supreme court. A Philadelphia man made it, and in it he left $2,000 to the Presbyterian Orphanage and $2,000 to the Presbyterian Home for Widows and Single Women, and to other charitable societies smaller sums. The condition of the bequests was that if any of the beneficiaries should give any support, aid or sympathy to what the testator considered "the pernicious fallacy of 'prohibition' or its bantling, 'local op tion,' or to any other scheme for the total suppression by law of the manu facture, sale or distribution of liquor that will intoxicate when used to ex cess," or show any unfriendly spirit against any person for being engaged in the manufacture or sale of liquor, then the legacies should become void. The two Presbyterian societies and the Indigent Widows Society declined to accept the bequests on account of the conditions. They said that while it was not their charter object to take part in schemes for the suppression or the prohibition of the liquor traffic, yet as they were connected with a religious body which had been opposed to that traffic, they felt that they could not accept the legacy with such a condition annexed. The Orphans' court held that the whole clause was too vague and in definite to allow the transfer to the charity which was to receive the money if the condition was violated, and held that the Presbyterian societies took their legacies clear of any conditions whatever. The Supreme court decides that the condition should be fulfilled, and that there was no more uncertain ty in determining who were Prohibi tionists or aided and encouraged pro hibition than in describing any politi cal party or religious creed. The lega cies will therefore not be received by the Presbyterian societies to whom gifts were first made. LEdAI. KQUAl.lTY EOlt VEHlri.ES The bicycle is a vehicle, and the New York city wheelmen are moving for a repeal of all ordinances which relate exclusively to bicycles, and the enact ment of a general ordinance defining the manner in which the highways s'.tall be used for bicycles and a ll other wheel ed vehicles. Their idea is that the pe destrian should have the right of way when crossing the highways at the in tersections of streets or roadways, and all horsemen, drivers and cyclists should avoid collision with pedestrians, even though it should be necessary to come to a full stop. It should not be deemed sufficient to warn the pedes trian by signal, and then to continue without abatement of speed. The pe destrian might be deaf or blind, or both, and yet is entitled to the right of way. They argue that all drivers, horsemen and cyclists shall have right of way when traversing the streets or highways which extend north and south, and those traveling east and west should accord this right of way when crossing such streets or high ways. They further ask that all vehi cles shall carry lighted lamps between sunset and sunrise, that bells shall be used for signals under conditions which are described, that drivers of covered wagons must be compelled to signal in some way when about to change their course, that cable cars shall be com pelled to stop before crossing certain named points which are especially dan gerous, that the limitations as to speed be relaxed outside the densely populat ed portions of the city, but only as may be ordered by the aldermen, and that an ordinance be passed forbidding the carrying of children on bicycles un- less the children are old enough to ride the wheel alone. This appears to Vie a reasonable lay out, anl that part of it pertaining to pedestrians is encouraging. H really should not be considered that a wheel man or the manager of any other vehi cle Is privileged to collide with a pedes trian even If the pedestrian is not care ful or accommodating.

No dressmaker can be happy if she does not put it somewhere. Shall it be all over the inside of the bodice so that a corset Is hardly necessary, In the hem of the skirt to give It a swish, or in tho sleeve? In the case of the bodice shown here the first question was an swered so strongly In the affirmative that the garment's inside suggested a gridiron, the gain from such treatment being a fit that not the slightest wrin kle blemished. The stuff was navy blue mohair, the skirt being lined with changeable blue taffeta and having a pinned oust rutne. its jacKet bodice had a short ripple basque and hooked in the center beneath a narrow vest of folded white chiffon, and the double revers of mohair were edged with white silk bands embroidered with dark tan silk. Below the revers the bodice was double-breasted, and cuffs, jabot and collar with wired points, were of the white silk. Tost wliflt n. dress like this Is to be styled in the summer girl's vocabulary is hard to say. Already she is adopt ing a vernacular that confuses the lis tener who is not posted.

Waller S. linss, tin American resident of Yokohama, Japan, departed from this city last night en route for Van couver, liritish Columbia, whence he will sail on a. Canadian Pacific steam ship for Japan not later than June tilth. Mr. Itoss, who Is one of the wealth iest merchants of oriental goods in Yo kohama, city, has spent the past three days in this city, luring Ills stay he stopped nt the home of his sister, on Uluff street, near Magee. This was his first visit to this city in twenty-five years. Mr. Jtoss left this city when but twenty years old. Since that ho has made several trips through the United States, but has never before visited Pittsburg until last Sunday. Sir. Koss first saw tho light in a house which then stood on the foot of the cliff, directly below The present high school building When ten years old Ids parents removed from Pitssburg to a small town in the northern part of Lawrence county, Pennsylvania. While he was yet in bis teens his pa rents died. At the age of twenty, an orphan, and without friends or re sources,, and nothing outside of a fair education and a wonderful degree of pluck, he decided to migrate westward and try his fortune in the golden fields of California. Reaching San Francis co, lie at once struck out for work, and soon found It in the capacity of clerk In the office of San Francisco's largest im porting establishment. This was the stepping stone to further success, for just six months thereafter he was transferred to a more lucrative posi tion at the company's branch store at Yokohama, Japan, and afterward made a partner of the entire concern. In speaking of the affairs of Japan Mr. Ross said: "When I left Japan for this country a few months ago there was a prevailing feeling that the war Japan had with China was merely a forerunner of a more disastrous struggle. Being in touch with some of the highest officials of the Japanese government, I have some knowledge of government plans. At present Japan is making secrat preparations for a combat with China, which may commence at any time. There is no doubt in my mind that the struggle will commence before the end of the present century, , and it will have more disastrous results than the late one. The hatred borne against Rus sians by the Japanese Is also deep and intense, and in all probability more so owing to Its suppression. "Some day, and I believe it is soon at hand, the civilized nations of the world will awake to find that Japan has de clared war against either Russia or China. The sleeping Jap has fully awakened, and Is now alert and pro gressively Inclined. Since the past war the towns of Japan have risen, phoenix like, into modern cities. The govern ment, too, has taken rigid steps in building railroads, equipping her ves sels and erecting fortifications. Such precautionary measures have their own meanin g. 'Another singular fact is that the government of Japan Is now totally ig noring the teaching of the mother lan guage and In its stead substituting a complete English course of instruction in all its schools and colleges." cvi.rvitt: oe or it ir. Domestic ConsnmpMon is Great and Its K.flVcts urn !cmnrnH'lng. (From the New York Times,) There is a fierce dispute going on just now as to the relative merits or demer its of opium.. Many eminent men in the scientific world openly declare that opium is a blessing. The government experts in the country where It grows go so far as to say that opium is a blessing instead of being a curse to the natives. However, the vast majority of mankind will long be of the undivi ded opinion that opium is tho most all crushing curse that afflicts man. The enthusiasts, or.'rather, extremists, of the International Anti-Opium society picture the condition of India under the ban of opium in the most dreadful manner possible. According to one of these men, all of the six hundred mil lion of human beings in Asia are ex posed to the evils of the opium trade as legalized by the British government. In order to derive a revenue from it the Indian government issues licenses for the sale and consumption of this poi sonous drug In vile places In all large cities like Calcutta, Bombay, Madras, Lueknow and Maulmain, and in all towns and villages of India and l!ur mall. These licenses are not issued for the purpose of limiting the sale of something that cannot be prohibited hut. they are issued with the require ment that the holder of the lieens must sell a stipulated quantity or pay a forfeit! The more sold the more rev enue the English crown will receive. As the opium is bought from the gov eminent agents, of course it is known how much tho holder of the license sells. A member of the parliament who was most bitterly opposed to this traffic has been traveling through India gathering facts and seeing for himself what the condition of the natives is un der an unrestricted use of opium. One of the opium dens of Lueknow is graphically described. There is no s crecy about selling or purchasing the drug. It is handled as would be sugar flour or the other necessities of life. Entering with the customers, you will find yourself in a spacious but very dirty courtyard, around which ara ranged fifteen or twenty small roonu This is the establishment of the gov ernment collector the opium farmer. The stench is sickening and the swarm of flies intolerable. Enter one of the small rooms. It has no windows and is very dark, but in the center is a small charcoal fire, the glow of which lights up the faces of nine or ten human be ings men and women lying on the floor like pigs in a sty. A young girl fans the fire, lights the opium pipe and holds it to the mouth of the last comer till his head falls heavily on the body of the inert man or woman who happens to lie near him. In no groggers, in no lunatic or idiot asylum will one see such utter, helpless depravity as ap pears in the countenances of those in the preliminary stages of opium drun kenness. Here one may see handsome young married women, nineteen or twenty years of age. sprawling over the senseless bodies of men. Here is a much younger girl sitting among a group of newly arrived customers sing ing lewd songs as they hand around the pipes. At night these dens are all crowded to excess, and it ie estimated 1 that there are some fourteen thousand people In Lueknow abject slaves of this hideous vice. There are those, however, who have radically different opinions on the opi um question. The use of the drug in America or Europe under vastly differ ent climatic conditions has nothing in common with the use of It in Its mitlva land. The bishop of Calcutta, on being asked for an opinion 011 this subject, said among other things that, "while admitting that there are evils arising from the use of opium, we are of the opinion that they are not sufficiently great to Justify us In restricting the liberlv which all men should be permit ted to exercise in such matters. Medi cal testimony seems to show that opi um used in moderation Is in this coiin- trv harmless and under certain condi tions of life distinctly beneficial." One dlKtlntrulsheil native, a high 0111- clal of the Indian museum, was rather sarcastic when asked his opinion on this subject. He said that tho opium habit was much preferable to the alco holism of America and Europe, and re commended tho introduction of the drug as a substitute for alcohol. A 1'imiclilnl Appeal. The following manifesto, copied ver batim from the original "poster," is a capital specimen of election eloquence as applied to parochial contests: "Fel low working men, gentlemen and la dies, I honorably put myself forward under your very kind notice for a seat on the Swanscombe Parish Council, let me tell you as a man that I was the first to give cheap meat on Galley Hill and Swanscombe, and all round; I nev er did and never will hurt a working man, when times is good, I want to get paid for my very superior food that I always supply, and when times is hard. then you can take it at any price you like, to feed your wives and children, and your families from George Clinch, The Peoples only Butcher' in this par ish. I shall work hand In hand with the Rev. George Hale to bury the dead at the lowest price and put the poor body deep in 'mother earth, where they ought to be, and I promise that I shall sell my meat at the same price. I shall also hid) Mr. Dunbar (for he is an old Toff) to reduce the salaries of clergy men as it do cost too much for prayers, and we can go up to glory at a less price. I also promise to do more than the last council, for they done nothing and as Mickey Finn is not standing, but sitting down low, we can do good business and have no Donnybrook Fair at our meetings, in fact Gentlemen and Ladies I shall do every mortal thing for the good of your body, and the parson, will take care of your departed souls. I shall reduce the rates and get rent for the workingmen cheaper; I shall light up your roads so that you can see them upon a dark moonlight night. The last word I say unto you is, do your duty to yourselves and never mind about me, but put me on the council for your own sake, and the interest of the men who get bread by the sweat of their brow." Household Words. H.IK AX1 COJIJIEHCE. Lessons Taught liy tho Long Conflict Be tween r.ngliiiul and r ranee. (l'Ymn the Nineteenth Century.) War with France opened in 1793 and was protracted, with the exception of the sh'ort break due to the peace of Amiens, for twenty-two years. AVe started with 16,073 ships, of 1,540,000 tons, manned by one hundred and eigh teen thousand men, and with a navy of one hundred and forty-one ships of the line, one hundred and fifty-live frigates and one hundred and twenty-nine small vessels. AVe had to deal with a thoroughly inefficient enemy, disorgan ized by revolution and distracted by in testinal quarrels. .From the first hour of war our military superiority was un challenged. The declaration of war, however, caused a very serious con traction of trade. There were many failures, and a temporary loan of five million pounds was necessary to avert paiyc. This measure has a most salu tary effect, and only 3,855,000 was ap plied for. Early in the struggle the at tack upon our commerce began. Ships of war and privateers of all sorts fell upon it.' Rowboats put off to mer chantmen lying becalmed in the chan nel or under tho Forelands and carried them by hoarding. Surcouf In the East indies swept into his net not only help less sailing ships, but also large and heavily armed Indiamen. In 1805 the Rochefort squadron got to set and took in five months four warships and forty two merchantmen. "In 1810." says the Naval Chronicle, quoted by 'Captain Mahan, "signals were out almost every day at Dover on account of the enemy's privateers appearing In sight." In 1S00, the same authority tells us, there were eighty-seven large French privateers in the channel ports of France alone. From first to last the French captured eleven thousand ships, with their car goes, worth two hundred million ponuds, a toll of two and one-half per cent, at the very least on our trade. At first sight this loss does not look particularly heavy, and it certainly had no effect upon the issue of the war. It was only so much property that might, if spared, have added to our wealth. AVe annihilated French trade, so that Napoleon could not even send a cockle boat to sea, as he himself con fessed, and we captured no less than 1,031 privateers, carrying 0.40O guns, manned by 69,000 men. Thus we lost an average of five hundred and fifty ships a year, and took less than fifty- five a year of the depredators. Neu trals, it will be observed, lost by peace and gained by war. From 1790 to 1793 the average clearance of neutral ship ping Was under two hundred thousand tons. CUIUOSITV A BOUT SAP. Some of Mie Hidden Mysteries About riant Life Ttevealed. (From the St. Louis Republic.) At this season of tile year, when the "sap is up" in nearly all species of tree and shrub in the northern temperate zone, thoughtful men and women are thinking about a great many of the cu rious things in nature. AAre know a great deal about the "hidden myster ies" of plant life nowadays, but there are still several of the subtle "hows" and "whys" that are successfully elud ing the botanists and the "vegetable physiologist." The heading of this "note" gives you a pretty good idea of what we are driving at, and we wish to say before wasting more space that there are more "curiosities about sap" than the average reader imagines. The cause of the circulation of sap has been a standing enigma since the days when men first began to study and reflect. W ATUCO ami other Valuable ArtlolM W WS B W Many theories have been advanced, but each of these has In turn been exploded. It Is certainly true that the fiuid cannot circulate through ihe minute inter stices which make up the fiber of trees and plants without some kind of me chanical force either before or behind it to Impel or attract. What this force is and how it operates are not known. There must be a reason, and a good one, for water, the course of which is usually "down hill." to change, its course and How vigorously upwards de spite the general tendency of gravita tion. It has been asked: "Does sap move because of capillary attraction, or on account of evaporation from tho leaves?" There is certainly a mass of contradictory evidence to present in both cases. Capillary attraction can not be accepted as tho cause, because the fluid ascends by the cells and not through the tubes. Neither can evapo ration from the leaves be accepted as the cause, because sap was flowing a month or six weeks ago in some plants, long before even the buds bfgan to swell. Verily we know but little about some of the mysteries of nature. Kmunrrassing. Mr. Penrose Fitzgerald, the member for the town of Cambridge, is a breezy, popular Irishman, with a rich voice, a fluent delivery, and a sailing-master's certificate. Mr. Fitzgerald is rather shortsighted and with so weak a mem ory for names and faces that for some years he never could distinguish be tween Mr. Darling, Mr. AVhitmore, or Mr. Itaumann, or between Mr. George Allsopp and Sir George Elliot. Once this weakness had an embarrassing re sult, according to a lobby story which, if not .true, is ben trovato.- Viscount KUcoursie, who sat in the '86 Parlia ment for a western constituency, be came the Earl of Cavan, but being an Irish peer retained his seat. The new earl spoke to Mr. Fitzgerald in the lob by, and observing a puzzled look, was good enough to say pleasantly, "I can see you don't know who I am. My name's Cavan." "Of course, of course, my dear fellow," was the answer, "but for the moment, I admit, I took you for that ass KUcoursie." London Saturday Review.
