Rut It was not enough lo he )4!e.l uun to carry the iiamvof Disiai li wuU credit throu.h lL world? Why pile Tellon upon Ossa by adding ConingsiSy to Disraeli? Of italpli Disraeli no one expected any thing, because duriug his brother's llio ho wns eclipsed, nnd he has alwnys been a bit of recluse. Home time ago he obtained a vory comfortnblo post in tho House of Iirds as a clerk's assistant, with a salary of 2,100 pounds a yeur. Yon will not see his face if you go into the House of Lords, for be sits with bis back to the door oppo site tho Lord Chancellor. If you did sco it you would find little or no resemblance toLis famous brother. His features aro much more strongly I fobraio In typo than those of llenjnuiiii were evon in his litter days when a decidedly grout alteration passed over them, The Brunt statesman Bulfurod much in personal appearance from the ravages of time. As for Ralph, ho has always carried the broadest murks of his raco in his countenance. It was Ralph's son, as I havo int'mnted, who Inn now mado his debut. At Hath, old city, nssiM-iiitod with lionu Nash, bher idnn, Mr. l'ickwick or Coningsbv, Disraeli informed his audience that the Irish ques tion wns very engrossing.but ho had novur been able to undentUtnd iU A good many older and wiser men are in tho sumo posi tion, if they only hud tho cournge to con fess it He also declared that the repre sentatives of Ireliind In Parliament hud no sense of honor or shittuo, and no thought for the welfare of their couptry. Tlio very name patriot stunk in connec tion with Mr. I'urnoll. Perhaps wan smile crowHcd the weary fuco of Mr. Par Hell us ho read these words. It is something to have one's spooch re ported, however briefly, at tho ago of twenty-one. It is a beginning. Whether the new Disraeli, the younger, will como to anything or not remains to be soon. At uny rule ho will hnvo an easier start than his uncle. There will be no lack of help ing hands stretched out tn him. Of course he will desiro to cuter Parliament, and the way will bo smoothed for him. When Jtciijamiii Disraeli tried to get into tho llouso of Commons everybody was op pimed to him, including hi own relations, one of whom condemned it as tho maddest of all mad acts. As Dmrncli wroto and told hi sisier at tho time, it ia not very of ten, pcrliat, Hint hnlp or cncotiraoment come from one's own relations when it ia most needed. Disraeli's sister believed in him, hut wn havo no record of the opin ion of hi father or brother, lie got into Parliament in spileof nil obstacle., and on his I Irs', day he look up his Heat immedi ately behind Sir Robert Peel on tho sec ond bench, tho place which is usually oc cupied by some old and well tneJ friend of llio party, if not of thu minister. "Tou jour nudaco" was tho motto of lteiij.imiii Disraeli. People laughed nt lint, but they soon heuan to rx o thut they had a formidable power to reckon with. "Next lo undoubted suecotn," wrote Disraeli lo hi sinter, "llio best thing is to make a ureal noise, and many article that are daily written to nnnouneo my failure only prove that I havo not failed. It may bo that Coiiiiit:shy Disraeli boar this in mind. Hoi ileterinued lo nmko a treat noise. Well, bo will have every opxr tilinty, although tho appearance, even of genius, will not now nuiko tho stir that it did in 1:7. Are there, then, an many geniuses among us? Scarcely this, but tho level of ineiliociity ia higher than it was, and H-oplo are contented with it, and sometime mistake it for dm sacrc. Who would not laugh at "Vivian (irt-y" if it were irodurod now. Novels far cleverer than Disraeli's nro published all the vear round, and scarcely obtain a passing recog nition. Young Coningsby must not expect to taku tho world by storm. That world ia more cynical and blase than it wa when hi undo tone almvo tho human. Much Senking nnd writing have deadened ll pcriTptioii.

Tiio plui-o that the haj holds In Moslem estimation, and the fact that trade invariably follows tho pilgrim routes, aro woll known, ond in fighting for the ono tho Senubnis prob ably have In viow tho other also. At nny rate, tho readiness shown by tho people of Darfur and Kordofun to nock to the . Kcnusii eiandard mny be set down to i the intolerable state of things brought about by tho Muhdists, ;wLtj will neither engage in trade themselves nor permit others to do so. Tho Muhdists nro finding their follow-Mohnmmedans less long suffering than tho English. That this war against the dervishes has taken the form ol a re ligious movement is easily explicable. Hostilities otfior than of an intertribal character raSuly- occur in Islam, whoro Moslem has to light against .Moslem, ex cept under some sort of religious sanction. Thus the Wahabi movement was pursued vl ot urmis under tho sanction of the re ligious reformer Wahab, nnd the Muhdist movement under that of Mohammed Ahmet), tho self-styled Mahdi. It has been suggested that, if tlio Senussis undor Abu (Jhuinza be completely victorious, tho danger to Egypt may prove equally groat, and may call for the serious consideration of this country. Rut thu statu of tilings in tho eastern Sudan can hardly be mado worse than it bus been for the last live years under the domination of the Muh dists. Reaidos, we can greatly facilitate tlio pilgrimage and promote trade; and in tho present exhausted condition of the Sudan that ought to count for something. This wo know, that any attempt to con duct peace negotiations Willi tho Muhdists would bo utterly futile, and any chango in the situntiou at Khartum can scarcely be for tho worse. Evon if wo discredit tho reported fall of Khartum, the investment of tho town by the Sudan tribes marching under tho vic torious banner ot EI-.S niissi's lieutenant must be imminent. Too Senussi invaders nro probably well supplied with arms and ammunition; for, ns wo pointed out aomo months ago, an enormous trade In them hasbeeu going ou between Tripoli and tho interior for sotuo considerable tiuie. Thu arms and ammunition could not hnvo reached thu hands of tho Muhdists, They would all bo absorbed by Ihe Senussis anil their adherents. Tho pilgrims from far Sokoto, which is under thu iullueiice of thu lioyal Niger Company, umko their way to Mecca by a roulo running east nnd west through a series of well-populated Mate iu llio Central Sudan, nnd then through Darfur and the Eastern Sudan to Suakiin or sotuo other port on tho Red Sea. Tills gives us n glimpse of tho sissi bilities in the way of irudo with a tHirtion of Africa still outride the sphere of Euro pean iiillueuep, if only tint Mahdisla and their fanatical nun missuiiius iu regard to friendly and commercial intercourse were once got rid of. As wo buvo said, tho Senussi movement cannot possibly bo worse for ii and tho Sudauo.su than thu Mahdist havo been. Wo can only hotte that the upshot nf present events iirouud kharltiin may bring about a better state of thing than 'has prevailed then) since Hicks I'.isha set out ajpon Lis ill-fated Kordofau campaign. MILLINERS IN PARIS. They Are Becoming: Alarmingly Num erous The Equivocal Establishment.

The term is used broadly to de note thoso who tralllo in things appertain ing to the general adornment of the female form iu the French capital which was always, of course, fntnou for tho uuihIkt and skill of it modistes and cou- turiure.

From 'he London Telegraph. A pair of swallow have built their nest on tho vory summit of tho Lillel low or, right under tho vast and flapping folds of the greut tricolor. There tho little birds flit and work and porch, bringing maturiul for their lodging "a la belle elollu" all the way from the mud and niortnr heaps bo low to tho uppermost miter of the stupen dous obelisk of lutlico work. Tho report says they hnvo mado their abodo on tho tiptop of the Eiflol Tower and Lave taken possession as if tho structure had boon built expressly for them. There is some thing veiy clurming in this culm appro priation, so characteristic of tho light aud lively bird. Like other tourists, they hud mado up llioir minds, doubtless, to seo tho Exhibition, but also, like other tourists, they wero much troubled about lodgings. Moreover Iho enros of a family must occupy swallows In May, and yet it would-seem stupidity to bo at Paris nnd not sco tho show. Arriving from tho South, thev take a few turus in tho air, nnd spy tlm Eiffel Tower. "The very thing for us!" tho initio bird must have exclaimed; "hero is a house l.OIKJ foot bight, above tho smokoand away from tho gamins! Wo can settle splendidly hero au vingtiomc, and puss the best of ull possible times," The hen bird agreeing iu his viow that the lower was ruispd by M. Eillel on purpose for swallows, tho couple of small tourist., in black satin aud silver, proceeded at once to discover a nice snug nnglo in tho ironwork, and there they aro now installed as comlorlatily as anv dis tinguished arrivals, at tho Grand Hotel or tho Louvre, with tlio additional advantage of having nothing to pnv.

Having learned how difficult a thiug it was to obtain an interview with Abdul- Hamid II., I'felt a mighty longing for the forbidden fruit, and eventually I enjoyed it through the assistance of Mikaul-LUcndi, tlio Secretary to tho Minister of Foreign Affairs. Ho called for mo, at my botol, in his carriage, and the vehicle took its tor tuous way, first through tho grand street of Peru, thon into break-nock roads around and about immense barracks, uutil at last it gained the bight of Orta-Kcni, and af ter quito a long and portions voyage we found ourselves before tliopalaco. Yildix- Kiosk (Palace of tho Star), the actual resi dence of the Sulian, is au isolated rotreat where tho disturbances of tho outer world can scarcely penetrate, and whoso inner disturbances rarely and inexactly roach the ears of tho outer world. The carriage stopped in a narrow garden, where we ro- uiuiiiod, under tho strict survcillanco ol tho sentinels, while our names wore an nounced to tiio chamborlnin of theservico. To the right, to the left, before and behind us, trotted sentinels, soldiers, servants, workmen (for they are forovur adding to tho kiosk, and it threatens to becomo a small city ini.se If) in one continual stream, but nono entered the doors ol tho palace aud I saw no one go out. After a very few moments we .wero ad mitted nnd passed up a long, sleep stair case of onk, with a bulustrndo of crystal, and then through narrow galleries, between thick walls, milking a verilublo excursion down suites of room, nil furnished in tho r.uroiieiin slvlo, and finally, coming to a hull iu a saloon, where we wero served by a negro wHh cotli-e and cigarettes, while wo waited the good pleasure of the cham berlain. From some room very near us I heard the voice nf a man in dreary, drawl ing monotone, and Mikucl Ellcndi in formed mo thut ouch Friday, in the kiosk. aro sung the praises of departed Sultans. liut lor this monotonous cliunt, silence reigned in the Palnce of tho Star. It seemed to mo a million servants, orollleers of tho kiosk, passed and repassed through the rooms while wu waited, but they ex changed no words, only an occassional sign, and their ritcts were noiseless.

A small man, less than medium Light, but wall made, and with the dark hair and eves ol his race, pointed Van Dyck beard of raven black- nous iLi is Abdul-llamid, Sultan of Turkey. Tho man s gaxo is something re. uiarknhlo, at ouce soft and keen, ami while utterly frank and straightforward, yet expressing both doubt and suspicion of wiiai it may find in anothcr'a. Look ing into these questioning eye, I realize that this monsnh, even in his own palace, d'iea not leul secure. Il may be that he siisxx'i no one, hut he is a uuin who doubts all tho world. At the aamo tune, be is really loved by Lis poo. pie, to whom a sultan who can spare many hours from his harem to devolo to tho atlairs ol his country is an unceasing aourco of surprise.

The delegates from Arkansas came over in large numbers and brought a fine band with them from Littlo Rock. Kentucky wns also liberally represouted. The tournament began at 2 o'clock In the afternoon, and from that time until midnight Jackson Mound Park was a scene of endless activity nnd amuse incnt. In tho afternoon there was music on tho pavilion bv Trof. Arnold's band and on ' the lawn below by the Littlo Rock musiciuns, and while the atmosphere wus thus kept nveiy wuu music the tumors engaged in exercises requiring strength or skill and, at limes, botli coiubiucd. here wero jumping (contests, throwing and lifting weights, horizontal and parallel bar work, Gricco-Roinnn wrestling (and other uiiinly diversions. The Idling of heavy weights was an extraordinary test oi strength and endurance. Tho instrument used to make the test was about two and a Lulf loot long with weights at each end, leaving room for a good grip with each hand with an open space of a foot between hands. This instrument we hmod exactly 112 noun and each man was required to absuiuo a stooping posture, lift tho heavy woight as high over his head as his outstretched arms would permit, lower it again as near to tho ground as bis outstretched arms would permit after as suming a stooping position, with his back arched, and this up and downward tnovo- meul wits reixt'iited until strength, and en durance botli guve way. It wus a terriblo test; lomo ot iho men when they held thu weight poised above their heads quivered In every nervo, and a few ot the less muscular were only able to repeat tho act two or th re times. Ono broad shouldered competitor succeeded in going through the movement thirteen tune, amid tho up pluiise of a throng of six-ciators who sur rounded tho ring whilo the tost was going on. At 3:30 o'clock p.m. tho signal was givon to repair to the pavilion, thu timu having ai rived for the eiocutionury contests on Iho stage, lhcre wero but two contest ants, aud they both recited w ith spirit und dignity.
