THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN- SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 17, 1896. MYSTERIES OF THE LOUVRE. Vague Stories of Imperial Crime Beach the Outside World. Everyone who has "done" the Louvre will remember the low-pitched and somewhat gloomy halls in which are stored the treasures of Egypt. Beneath these lie yet more darkly mysterious vaults, inaccessible to the public, though approached by a wide and hand some staircase, such as would lead one to imagine that it communicated with apartments of some importance. Yet one finds at the bottom nothing but broad passages disposed in the form of a cross, and without any sign what ever of door or window. A recent examination, however, of the solid walls gives experts reason to believe that the masonry is more recent than the rest of the structure in this, -the oldest portion of the fortress pal ace. M. Vaugneux, a well-known critic, believes that many of the bodies of victims killed in the revolution 3f 1830 were immured here, and that the gov ernment was afraid to reveal the facts when the remains of their comrades were collected beneath the Colonne de Juillet. On the other hand, M. Blondel, the architect of the building, and M. Nor iuand, the secretary1 of the Society for Trotecting Parisian Monuments, hold tJie opinion that these subterranean passages led to the oubliettes into which Catherine de Medicis cast those who were unfortunate enough to incur her hate or fear. A judicious explora tion would clear up the matter, and settle, too, several doubtful points as to the foundations of Lescot's original citadel. Unfortunately, the annual grant does not provide: for any such archaeological research, and it would be necessary to appeal for funds to the generosity of the chamber London Chronicle. WHY ENGLAND IS GREAT. ' A Native Offers an Explanation Britain's Naval Superiority. How was it that half an island over which Queen Elizabeth ruled developed into the world-wide empire over which Queen Victoria reigns '? First and fore most, says Blackwood's Magazine, it must be referred to the qualities of the race, their energy and adventurous spirit, their capacity to colonize, to rule subject races, and to administer their affairs. That race was sprung of sue cessive seafaring invoders of these is lands who were trained for generations in the arduous defense of these shores, and taught to achieve naval superior ity as a necessity of their position As early as Edward III. the sover eignty of the narrow seas was asserted and conceded as a matter of course by the people of the low countries. As centuries rolled on, the insularity of our position became more marked as our possessions! in Europe dwindled away. The drill sergeant, who is the artificer of German fortunes, has had no ascendency in these islands, whose preoccupations have not risen from mil itary empires on their boundaries. -Nava superiority has been the guarantee of our shores, and at the same time the foundation of an empire which has grown up beyond the seas. The same qualities which achieved ordered liberty at home spread commerce, settlements and empires abroad LINCOLN'S WIDE SYMPATHY. Treated All People Alike In a Courteous Manner. i "Horace Greeley once said: 'I doubt whether man, w oman or child, white or black, bound or free, virtuous or vi cious, ever accosted or reached forth hand to Abraham Lincoln and detect ed in his countenance or manner any repugnance or shrinking from the prof fered contact, any assumption of supe riority, or betrayal of disdain.' "Frederick Douglas, the orator and patriot, is credited with saying: 'Mr. Lincoln is the only white man with whom I have ever talked, or in whose presence I have ever been, who did not consciously or unconsciously betray to me that he recognized my color.' "George Bancroft, the historian, al luding to this characteristic, which was never so conspicuously manifested as during the darker -days of the war, beautifully illustrates it in these mem orable words: 'As a child, in a dark night, on a rugged way, catching hold of the hand of its father for guidance and support, Lincoln clung fast to the hand of the people and moved calmly through the gloom.' " Kept Both Places. When the czar was made colonel of the Royal Scots Grays an officer of the regiment said to his orderly. "Donald, have you heard 'that the new emperor of Russia has been appointed colonel of the regiment?" "Indeed, sir," replied Donald, "it is a vera prood thing." Thfc, after a pause. ' Beg pardon, sir, bnt wull he be able to keep both places?" Much Bean Porridge. j ' A family, residing in Lakevillc, Conn., were'visited by relatives residing some distance off. One of the visitors re marked that there had been a great quantity of bean porridge made in his mother's family; "enough," said he, "to float a 74-gun ship. Don't you think so, Uncle John?" appealing to one of his relatives. "Yes, yes," replied that uncle ; "and the ship could float 24 hours and not hit a bean." 1 'yp ARIZONA L BEST with a big B.

Several specimens of water lilies have the very curious peculiarity of bloom ing all day and at evening closing their blossoms, and. by retracting the stem, drawing the flour entirelyunderwater. There is no more singular fact in the history of flowers than this oddity of the water lily. TERRAPINS AS PETS. Easily Tamed and Slay Be Taught to Do Certain Tricks. The latest fad in the way of domes tic pets is the diamoni-l;icked terra pins. They can be found now in artists studios, men's F-moking-rooins, and even in the ladies' boudoirs, says the New York World. The terrapin is a most convenient pet so far as feeding him is concerned. You can train him to eat almost any thing in the way of meat, or if you do not give him anything to eat at all for a year or so it does not appear to dis tress him to any great degree. It only increases his wakefulness and activity. At first he will only feed in water, and will eat nothing but hard or soft shell crabs and clams. lie is especially fond of the former. After a time, however, as he becomes more domesticated, he will readily devour cooked beef or mut ton chopped up fine, and will learn to take it out of your hand. When first introduced into the domi cile the diamond-back is very restless. He seems to want to investigate every possible corner of the house. But as soon as he has taken the bearings oi his quarters he subsides into a condi tion of quiet content and will allow you to try to teach him tricks. Everybody who possesses a diamond-back speak? of the readiness with which they can be tamed. A well-known New Yorker declares that he has succeeded in teaching his terrapin to do the danse du ventre. But this cannot be verified. to '96," etc. Call at ticket office, 941 Seventeenth street, and get a copy of the above, or address Geo. Ady, gen eral agent, Denver.
