Of BecKDt Years None Save Arthur Paid Attention to Society. Gen. Grant brought the camp into the white house, says Harper's Maga zine. Mr. Hayes had lived at Wash ington as a representative at a hotel or a boarding-house. Gen. Garfield had settled in the capital in a house of his own, and had enjoyed the kind of social life that may be had anywhere in this country and that runs to literary clubs that are formed to facilitate the escape of unpublished manuscripts. To en tourage talent and literary ambition was a great pleasure of the president, whose murder cut short the term that would have been marked with more geniality and agreeable talk than is usual at the white house. Mr. Arthur brought city manners and customs with him. People who did not know him were greatly mistaken in him. There had been a good deal of refine ment and elegance in Mr. Arthur's home, and its influence made the white house more of a social center than it had been before or than it has been since. Then came Mr. Har rison who had passed six years in the senate and a Washington boarding house, and Mr. Cleveland, who went to the capital a bachelor, having lived most of his life in apartments in a Buf falo business block. None of these men adopted the man ners and customs of court life, with the exception of Mr. Arthur, who insisted that those with whom he came in con tact should pay his office a respect some thing more than the formal decent re spect of good manners. The rest knew nothing of the rules which Washing ton society had laid down for its own and their guidance, and which were as conflicting as the various interests that invented and frequently modified them. Moreover, they have seemed to care a good deal less. They or their wives or their secretaries studied up the neces sary regulations that govern the inter course between the head of the nation and the diplomatic representatives of foreign powers. And, although Mr. Jefferson insisted on taking out to dinner what woman he would, regard less of her husband's rank, modern presidents have done their best to ob serve the proprieties in this respect. THE CARDINAL'S CLOSE CALL. Bis Keen Sense of uteil Once Saved Him from Being Poisoned. Years have rolled by since, but the story of an almost fatal accident to Cardinal Gibbons has lost none of its interest through not having been pre viously told, says the Philadelphia Call. Just before he rose to give the impassioned reading of his poem, "King Lear," at the anniversary din ner of the Sons of St. George, Prof. H. H. Hay, of Girard college, told of the happening as it had been related to him while he was traveling in Europe by a -priest acquainted with the cir cumstances. "While the cardinal, who was then an archbishop," said Prof. Hay, "was traveling aeross the Atlantic some years ago he complained one afternoon that he wasn't feeling very well, but was told by the ship's surgeon to await medical treatment until the following day, when something would be done for him if his sickness continued. On the day following the steward of the steamer was duly sent with a remedy for the eminent prelate. As he was about to place the glass containing the draught to his lips the archbishop was almost overcome by a strange and pungent odor. He hesitated a moment and lowered the vessel containing the liquid until he. recovered from the ef fect of the smell. Glancing incidental ly at the bottle in the steward's hand he noticed the word 'poison' on a label, and, not without a little alarm, asked the man if he knew what he was offer ing. The steward replied that he had done as was directed by the doctor. Alarmed, the archbishop sent post haste to the medical man to make sure of what was being tendered him. This time it was the surgeon who had occasion to manifest surprise. He hur ried to his distinguished patient's side and informed the archbishop that the glass offered him contained enough deadly poison to kill any two men." PUBLIC LIBRARIES. Illinois Comes Third with Forty-Two Great Book Collections. Massachusetts is far and away ahead of all other states in the supply of read ing for the people, saj's the Troy (N. WHOLESALE Y.) Times. Its 212 free public libraries have a total of 2,760,000 volumes, and this gives 1,233 volumes for each 1,000 of the population. The nearest rival to Massachusetts is New Hampshire, with forty-two libraries containing 175,000 volumes, being 464 books per 1,000 of the people, Third in rank is the great state of Illinois, with forty two libraries, the same in number as the little state of the White moun tains, but it has only 130 volumes to each 1,000 people. The next four in their order are Michigan, Rhode Is land, New York and Indiana, This places our state sixth in rank, while it holds first place in population, wealth and educational opportunities. Tfie millionaire givers to public li braries have been few up to date. Ac cording to Mr. Fletcher's book they do not number more than seven. They are: Chicago, John Crerar, 83,000,000; W. N. Newberry, 82,000,000; New York, the Astors, $2,000,000; Baltimore, George Peabody, $1,400,000; Enoch Pratt, 81,225,000; Philadelphia, Dr. James Rush, 81,500,000; Pittsburgh, Andrew Carnegie, 81,000,000. Look over this list and compare it with the scores of philanthropists who have given their millions to found colleges, universities and even special schools, and it looks infinitesimally small. The rich men have not yet in large num bers risen to a true appreciation of the value to society and to civil affairs of these colleges of the people. We have more colleges and universities than can be supported without frequent en dowments, scholarships and other gifts. But the library once established and endowed sustains itself, and is never lacking in patronage. CLEVER WORK OF AN OCULIST. How a Damage Suit W its Defeated Through a Little Knowledge of Optics. Here is an interesting account of a very clever bit of detective work by an oculist. It appears that in a large fac tory, in which were employed several hundred persons, one of the workmen, in wielding his hammer, carelessly al lowed it to slip from his hand. It flew half way across the room and struck a fellow workingman in the left eye. The man averred that his sight was blinded by the blow, although a care ful examination failed to reveal any in jury, there being not a scratch visible. He brought a suit in the courts for compensation for the loss of half of his eyesight, and refused all offers of com promise. Under the law, says the Sheffield (England) Telegraph, the owner of the factory was responsible for an injury resulting from an accident of this kind, and although he believed that the man was shamming and that the whole case was an attempt at swindling, he had about made up his mind that he would be compelled to pay the claim. The day of the trial arrived, and in open court an eminent oculist retained for the defense examined the alleged in jured member and gave it as his opin ion that it was as good as the right eye. Upon the plaintiff's loud protest of his inability to see with his left eye, the oculist proved him a perjurer and satisfied the court and jury of the fal sity of his claim. And how do you suppose he did it? Why, simply by knowing that the colors green and red combined make black. He procured a black card on which a few words were written with green ink. Then the plaintiff was or dered to put on a pair of spectacles with two different glasses, the one for the right eye being red and the one for the left eye consisting of ordinary glass. Then the card was handed him and he was ordered to read the writing on it'. This he did without hesitation, and the cheat was at once exposed. The sound right eye, fitted with red glass, was unable to distinguish the green writing on the black surface of the card, while the left eye, which he pretended was sightless, was the one with which the reading had to be done. A goose was never yet fairly run over, nor a duck. They are under the very wheels and hoofs, r.nd yet they contrive to flap and wadclle safely oil. The lonely woodpecker, when he de scends from his tree and goes to drink, stops several times on his way and listens and looks around before he takes his draught. There is a report that the German emperor will visit Dublin next year for the purpose of making acquaintance with and inspecting the lloyal dra goons, cf which he is honorable colonel. FURNITURE GO.
