It Is "A man who wears u silk hat. and If he lias no other title Insists upon having 'Esq.' added to his name when letters are addressed to him." The west end Londoner of social pretensions accepts this definition in practice. Summer and winter. In rain or shine, he wears a high silk hat In the streets of London and carries It Into the drawing room when he pays an afternoon call. It Is only when he takes n train for the provinces or for the continent that he ventures to use more comfortable headgear He also expects to have the distinc tion of "esquire" when n letter Is ad dressed to him and Is highly offended If lie finds on the envelope the prefix "Mr." As n matter of fact the uuin t>er of I In-. He ll gentlemen who arc le gally entitled to the mediaeval honors of "esquire" Is Insignificant. It Is a self assumed title which signifies noth ing that Is substantial In rank or priv ilege. In common use in Loudon “esquire" simply mentis tlint the person so ail dressed does not choose to be associ ated with tradesmen and ordinary working people and that he Is a "gen tleman” who Invariably wears a silk hat.—Youth's Companion. Knullsli Iteii Tape. At the present time, when the system ’ of red tape is being attacked and rid iculed, the following somewhat amus ing methods of dealing with matters ure still adopted In one of the great government departments. For Instance, a hairbrush and comb must be purchased under the head of service "clothing.” whereas a tooth brush Is under "fuel” and spectacles under “medicines.” A clotheshasket is "clothing." but clothes pegs are “In cidentals." The funniest of all, how ever. are guano and straw, they being purchased under “victualing.” A good instance of red tape Is told in connection with the excise. An officer had entered la the Inquiry column ot his return "March 13. Hog dead" This did not satisfy his superior, who told him to Inquire again, which the obedient officer did, recording: "April 10. Hog still dead."—Loudon Stand ard. Enron rngnl to Hope. When the Km proa. Frederick, eldest daughter of Queen Victoria, was a lit- I tie girl, her disposition, to the great grief of the queen, was haughty and arrogant. Once, when about to embark on the royal yacht Victoria and Albert, j she was lifted across to the deck of the boot by one of the sailors, who, as he j was putting her down gently, said, ! “There you are, my little lady.” "I am not a ‘little lnily;' 1 am a princess!" was the prompt and indlg naut reply. The queen, who had over heard the conversation, detained the man with gesture, and, turning to her j spoiled little daughter, said: “Toll the klud sailor that you nre much Indebted to him for his civility and that, although you are nut a ‘little Indy' yet, you confidently hope to merit the title before long.” Il.iiuly ami Kdacatlon. Why Is It that woman has always been more beautiful than man? In buinnu beings the attractive qualities have always been on the side of the female. Why Is It? Without wlshlug to cast any aspersion on the members of the superior sex, we may fairly an swer that It Is because they have hith erto been the less educated. Itut wom nu's Ideas arc changing.

Confederacy, ex-Benator Wlgfall was crossing the Mississippi, making his nay to Texas. He assumed the char icter of an ultra-Union man. On the Terry boat with him was a Federal of Iccr, with whom Wlgfall got Into con versation. The officer contlded to him (hat he was chasing Wlgfall. “If I fall n with the traitor.

Just before “Max O'ReU” (M.

Chittenden, and lo cated In Utica In I860, where she has ■eslded continuously ever since. 8be was for many years engaged In the mercantile business with her husband, uid In the early '00a did much buying, purchasing supplies at Quincy, Lexlug ;on and other points. Mrs. Chittenden mads many long rips on horseback In those days, and mcountered many difficulties and ad ■entures, always being active and alert tnd able to cope with all obstructions, rhls activity she still retains, and at ter present great age she Is able to do ill her own work, to sew and read with put the aid of- glasses, and, being a ilghly educated lady, she keeps fully n touch with the events of tly» day. Ihe Is an entertaining conversatlonal st. and relates many Interesting Inel lents connected with her early Ufa. One of her vivid memories Is of the irlglu of the Mormon Bible. As she re members, there was a Mr. Bpafford, a millwright and miller In the employ of [squire Wright, of Oonneaut (then call id Salem), Ohio. lie was afflicted with ■onsumptlou and did but little manual abor, though he had the oversight of leveral Industries. In general conversation with some issoclates one day he made the asaer lon that they knew nothing about the Bible, and to prove It he said he would vrlte a chapter of bis own and then ■ead a chapter from tha Bible, and he ,'lalmed they could not tell which was which. The tests were many, and rhauces were against Bpafford, but he won, and It helped much to relieve his last days. In the employ of Squire Wright was a boy named Joseph Bmlth, who was observed to be an attentive listener at many of the readings. Shortly after Rp&fford died, and. al though these papers were diligently searched for, they were never found. Rome years after the Mormon Bible, said to have been "revealed" to Joseph Hmlth, appeared, and the three ac quaintances of RpaQord Dr. Unit, Esquire Wright nud Zapb Lake—after examining It, made an affidavit and published It In the Salem Reporter to ' the effect that the greater part of the Mormon Bible was Identical with the iiiuuuscrlpM wrlttcu by their frieud Spafford.

ANAM RAISES EXCELLENT TEA. french Colony l'roinlsea to 1 ec.snie a Competitor of China nod Jap n. In a recent report to the State De partment United States Consul John C. Covert at Lyons writes of the tea and coffee production In Anam and Mada gascar. He says: The year 1WI4 was the first In which lea from one of her colonies was offer ed In France. In that year 7,Chic pounds were received from Anam. In l.MMi the receipts jumped up to 10.21HJ pounds, In 1897 to 13.1*10 pounds, in ISPS the Imports of lea from Anam Into France were 42,202 pouuds. The tig ures for IShU are not accessible, but It Is estimated that the exports will he not less than 140,000 pounds. "Up to 18U2 Auam tea was cultivated only for use among the natives, and the proposition to cultivate It for European consumption seemed a chimera. But tlie consumption of tea in France was Increasing very rapidly. From 1,147, 035 pouuds consumed In 18112 the quan tity rose to 1,794,832 pounds In 1898, and It Is believed to have increased by nearly another 100,000 pouuds In 1899. The supply was almost entirely front China and Ceylon. "This tea from Anam Is said to equal the finest article produced In Cbluu. It Is in very general use In the French army and in Anam, and It is believed to be only a question of time when It will fill the entire demand In France. The production Is dally Increasing. Tin old colonists are going Into the bust nesB of raising tea, finding it more profitable than any other occupation. “The production of coffee on the east ern coast of Madagascar Is eipected to soon develop Into Important propor tions. In the past It has been Insignifi cant, but the government has published figures setting forth the estimated crop for 1894 at 713.475 kilograms (equal to 1,578,000 pouuds). This estimated re sult Is considered very satisfactory. In asmuch as the area planted Is not half the cultivatable territory of the Island. The receipts of coffee from all tbs French colonies In 1899 were only 903, 000 kilograms (2,123,000 pounds)." WOULD SUPPRESS SWEARING. Uerardlar Bights of People Who Ob ject to Profanity. What reason under the sun can be given why men should be permitted to curse at their own pleasure In public places to the discomfort of some and to tbs shame of others? Ws recall an Incident last summer which struck us forcibly as an illustration of what should happen everywhere In this free country where the circumstances are the same, says the New Haven Begls ter. A tipsy loafer boarded the car at Bavin Bock and took a front seat. Al most Incidentally be began to talk, using language which waa both pro fane and Indecent. There was no rea son why the women and children pres ent should be obliged to listen to hla talk. Although the man had paid hla fare, the demand was made that be ba put off, which, after some delay, waa done, to the relief of every passenger, The phlloaophy which Justified the ejectment of the profane swearer from the car justifies hls suppression wher ever he makes others uncomfortable, Not one of us would hesitate longel than was necessary to take the legal steps against a swearing neighbor who made himself a terror and nuisance from morning till night A man or • woman baa a perfect legal right to walk freely about the city and demand that hie or her ears shall not be as ■nutted by oaths and Indecent speeches. It Is not at all a question of boarding school government It Is as legitimate a function or obligation of the authori ties ae it Is to keep the streets clean. It of course does not follow that be cause a man freely uses profane lan guage he Is an evil member of society. It la. In a majority of cases, a habit pure and simple, but even habits ars to be condemned which make other people uncomfortable and wretched. The Power of Mosio. “Music has charms to soothe the sav age breast” and It has other uses, as will appear from the following anec dote: A famous musician was spending a short holiday In the country. On Sun day he went to church and asked the organist If be would let him play the organ “exodus." Consent was given, and the stranger produced such wonderful and beautiful music that everybody kept their seats to enjoy It This vexed the regular organist who had hls own Ideas of what an exodus was Intended for. “That kind of playing," he whispered anxiously, “will never get the people out. I’ll show yon how to do It" With that, he pushed the volunteer aside, took hls place, and began droning away In hls usual style. Speedily the congregation arose from the pews and fled. “There!” cried he, with a self-satis fled smile, “that Is the way to play them ontl" ___ Prussian Millionaires.

Leeds of Tioga met Ste phen Crane once under circumstances which showed how little the novelist trailed upon the fnme that came to him. Mr. Leeds got off a train at Del aware Water Gap. The* only man on the platform was humped up against the side of the depot gazing Into space. He looked like a farmer’s boy. His trousers were baggy, his coat battered and his lint rowdy. "Say, carry this stuff to the hotel for me. will you?” asked Mr. Leeds. The man grasped the bags and started in the wake of Mr. Leeds toward the hotel. When the hotel was reached. Mr. Leeds lost sight of his porter for n few minutes while he greeted friends. Looking around for his baggage, be saw the mnn who iind packed It to the hotel sitting on the piazza with his legs on the railing. He was reading a book. "Who's that man?" asked Mr. Leeds. "Oh, that's Stephen Crane,” some one said. The next day Crane left the place before Mr. Leeds hail an opportunity for explnuations.—Philadelphia North American. The l.a.t Chinese Actress. Many viators to the Celestial king dom have noted the absence of women from the stage. All the roles In n Chi nese play are taken by men. Tills sin gular custom Is traced back to a wom an's whim. The Emperor Yung Tsclilng married an actress at the be ginning of the eighteenth century, when women were allowed on the stage. The emperor died and the em press dowager ruled the country for her son, the Prince Kim Sung. To satisfy her vanity this shrewd and most peculiar woman Issued a decree in the year 1730 forbidding, un der penalty of Instant death by the sword of the executioner, any member of her sex to appear on the Chinese stage. “After me, no one,” said the empress dowager, and since her day no woman within the reach of Chinese law has dared to test the strength of her decree. In Hongkong (a British colony) women hnve played In Chinese theaters, but never as yet, we believe. In San Francisco. The Snore. A certain poet thus breaks forth: “Oh, the snore, the beautiful snore, till ing the chandler from celling to floor; over tile coverlet, under the sheet, from her wee dimpled cliln to lit? pretty feet; now rising aloft like a bee In June, now sunk to the wall of a crack ed bassoon; now flluteiike subsiding, then rising agnin, is the beautiful snore of Elizabeth Jane.” Weak Nerves Are made strong when fed by the rich, pure blood given by Hood’s Sarsaparilla.

SAN FRANCISCO, CAL. THE CRIMINAL CUCKOO. He Is the Oae Bxeeptlsa to the Kind, ly Its tare of Birds. Bad temper and cruelty are perhaps the most obvious signs of mental de generation In the beasts. The larger monkeys, for Instance, become as bad tempered aB a violent man when they grow old, and many In their treatment of other animals are cruel as we use the word In regnrd to man. Among the carnivorous bensts the cat amuses Itself by torturing a mouse, and the weasel tribe kill for sheer love of kill ing. No such cruelty Is seen among eagles or falcons. Fierce as their tem pers are, they do not torment other birds which they catch or kill for kill ing's sake. Good temper Is general among birds. Except the cuckoo, such a thing as an 111 tempered wild bird Is unknown. Nowhere In the race can a temper like that of the Tasmanian devil or the wild hunting dog or the Cape buffalo or the baboon be found. Even those which In spring are thieves and egg robbers are not mauvals coucheurs at other times. Good temper and good fellowship In society, a pergonal affec tion to each other to which the beasts offer no parallel, Industry and Inde pendence, Intense devotion and fore •lght In tending their young, with oth er very human and engaging traits of character, must all be credited to the race of birds. Among these kindly and simple na tures the cuckoo Is a monster. Let there be no mistake on this subject He unites In his life and character, from the egg to the adult bird, prac tices and principles to which the whole race of warm blooded animals offers no parallel. He Is an outrage on the mor al law of bird life, something so fla grant and so utterly foreign to the way of thought of these kindly beings that If he did not exist he would be Incon ceivable. It Is not merely that he Is a supplanter and a changeling. HIs whole nature is so evil that In the world of birds he Is an Incarnation of the principle of 111, an embodiment of vices which would If understood or adopted by other birds put an end to the existence of the race. — London Spectator.

DANCER Sufferers from this horrible malady nearly always inherit it — not necessarily from the j>arents, but may be from some remote ancestor, for Cancer often runs through several generations. This deadly poison may lay dormant in the blood for years, or until you reach middle life, then the first little sore or ulcer makes its ap pearance— or a swollen gland in the breast, or some other part of the body, gives the first warning. To cure Cancer thoroughly and perma nently all the poisonous virus must be diminated from the blood—every vestage >f it driven out. This S. S.

H. U. HO. 34, 1004 THE BEST PRESCRIPTION IS Grove’s Tasteless Chill Tonic. The formula is plainly printed on every bottle—hence you know just what you are taking when you take Grove's. Imitators do not advertise their formula knowing that you would not buy their medicine if you knew what it contained. Grove’s contains Iron and Quinine put up in correct proportions and is in a Tasteless form. The Iron acts as a tonic while the Quinine drives the malaria out of the system. Any reliable druggist will tell you that Grove’s IS the Original and that all other so-called Tasteless Chill Tonics are imitations. An analysis of other chill tonics shows that Grove’s is superior to all others in every respect. You are not experimenting when you take Grove’s—its superiority and excellence having long * been established. Grove’s is the only Chill Cure sold throughout the entire malarial sections of the United States. No Cure, No Pay. Price. 50c.
