fairy or a good
natured wizard who
would bestow a for
tune upon him just tor the mere asking.
So he went away from his father's home,
shouldered a small knapsack, took a strong
stick in his hand and set out to find his for
tune. He travelcdjfor days and nights, for
weeks and months without even seeing any
body that looked like a fairy or a goblin or
a Swarf or a wizard. Arnold was almost
disgusted with his lack of success, and he
began to think that the world of wonders
was closed for him. But still, as he had no
prospect for anything to better his present
condition, he wisely concluded that he
might as well continue his search until he
did find what he wanted.
One day, however, Arnold came into a
long and deep valley. A stream was run
ning through the middle and on each side a
beautiiul -meadow of soft, sweet grass was
laid out like a verdant carpet. The valley
was formed on each side by an exquisite
J7ic Dwarf of the Mountain.
inouutaiu ridge along whose slopes grew all
kinds of wonderful specimens of trees. An
almost noiseless breeze was floating upon
the atmosnhere of this beautiful valley
which made the entire dale so quiet that a
charm of myteriousne&s and enchantment
appeared to lie pervading all around, which
became very attractive to young Arnold.
"I must explore this place," he said to
himself a ter he hart recovered from the deep
reverie of thoughts, which took possession
of his mind when he entered the valley. He
took the 1-ed of the small river for a guide
and following the splashing ripples he ar
rived ct lat at the foot of another mountain
which teemed to have thrown itself directly
across the water's course, thus forcing the
stream to turn at a rectangle. This moun
tain, however, consisted of enormons blocks
of cramte and rocks. Xotabladeot grass,
n shrub or a tree grew upon the bare sides.
While Arnold was yet wondering atthe
sight before liiin, he suddenly noticed
n little men with a whee'barrow before him.
The man was evidently a dwarf, because he
wai no higher than Arnold's hat, and he
"xas-SHitrg his barrow with heavy rocks.
"What are vou doing?" asked Arnold.
"I am encaged in the task "6f wheeling
these rocks away," replied the little man.
"Don't you want to help me? I will pay
The young man at once thought that the
dnarf must be mad to think ot moving the
mountain, still he concluded he might as
well make a pretense of working, and claim
a fortune from the little fellow the nest day.
So lie told the dwarf that he would help him
iu his ork.
'All right," answered the dwarf, "come
along, but I shall have to get you a bigger
uagoutban my wheelbarrow, because you
are so much taller andstronger looking than
The short man took Arnold away into a
deep cavern, which was found in one of the
hills enclosing the valley. In a corner of
the cavern they found a number of vehicles
of all kinds, large and small.
The dwarf pointing to the largest of the
lot told Arnold to pull it away, for a
moment the young man looked dumfounded,
because the wagon looked so large that he
felt sure he had nut the strength to move it.
But to show the dwarf his willingness he
took hold of the center pole and pulled. To
his astonishment the wagon came rolling
toward him as easily as if it had only been a
toy wagon. So he gave the wagon another
pull, and this time it rolled out of the cav
ern and down the hill toward the stony
mountain use greased lightning. At the
foot of the granite mountain the wagon
ttopped as suddenly as if it had been called
to a halt by some mysterions power.
".Now go ahead," said the dwarf to the
amazed Arnold, "and load the wagon,"
and the young man, who by this time bad
nearly lo-t his senses by the wonderful
The Fairy of the ForaL
feat the wagon had performed, began to
obey the dwarfs command. Stone after
stone, rock upon rock he picked up and
threw them all on the wagon, and still there
was plenty of room left. The mountain
grew smaller and smaller at every moment,
yet the wagon looked to be nearly as empty
as it was when he commenced loading it.
Arnold never stopped in his work. He
seemed to be urged on by some invisible
agency. He did not feel tired and no mat
ter how big and heavy the rocks seemed to
be while they lay on the ground they all
were as light in his hands as if they were
feathers instead of rocks. At last the
wagon, however, was filled and as Arnold
looked around to see whether there were
any more rocks left, he observed that the
granite mountain was no more. He was be
wildered and with a frightened stare he
glared at the dwart.
"You have done very well," said the little
man. You have succeeded in loading the
whole mountain into the wagon, but your
task is, not yet accomplished. You must
sow pull the wncon up the bill into the
cavern. Take hold of the pole while I will
Arnold, who had ceased to be astonished
any longer, and realizing that the dwarf
was a wonderful being, mechanically
.grasped the pole of the wagon and pulled
with all his might, and, behold, the wheels
moved around, the wagon followed him,
and in less time than it takes to say it the
wagon stood in the cavern, load of granite
and all. Then the dwarf came up to him
"Young roan, you have done your job
well; here is my rewardl" "With these
words the dwarf handed him a block ot
granite and in the next moment vanished,
the cavern wa3 closed and Arnold found
himself at the entrance of thevalley. For
a minute or so he looked at the rock in his
hand, then he got furious.
"Ifthatisthe way vou show your grati
tude, Mister Dwarf." he shouted, ''youcan
keep that rock for yourself 1" Saying
this, he threw the granite block away and
The nest day Arnold came into a large
forest, where he found a beautiful fairy
gathering the leaves from the trees into a
"What are you doing 1" the young man
asked the fairy.
"I am going to gather all the leaves of
this forest into this sack," she answered.
"Will vou help me ?"
Arnold thought the fairy must be crazy to
think that she could gather all the leaves of
the forest into the sack; still, out of curios
ity, he thought'he might as well help her for
a short while.
"I will give you a good reward." she
said, and Arnold at once commenced. But
lol no sooner had he touched a tree when
he noticed that the leaves had already dis
appeared within the sack. Arnold was
amazed, but the fairy told him to keep on
with his work, and so he did. He walked
from tree to tree, and to his utmost surprise
all the trees were bare by 6 o'clock in the
"Young man, you have done your job
well; here is my reward!" With these words
the fairy handed Arnold a bunch of leaves,
then she vanished, sack, leaves and all.
"Is that the way you pay me a reward,"
cried the yonng man indignantlv, "bv giv
ing me a handtul of dried up yellow leav.es;
well, you can keep them for yourself Jliss
tress Fairy," and throwing the leaves away
Arnold again continued his travels.
The next morning he came to a large lake
where he found an old white-haired man
with a large bucket, standing on the bank
ot the water. In one hand the wizard, for
that is what the old man was, held a small
pitcher, and he was ocenpied with filling
the bucket from the lake.
"What are you doing?" asked Arnold ot
the old wizard.
"I am emptying this lake into my
bucket," replied he. "will you help me?"
Arnold smiled incredulously when he
said: "How can you fill all the water of
the lake into that small bucket?"
"Very easily; here yon take this pitcher
and we will soon have the lake empty."
Arnold took hold of the pitcher and be
gan bailing the water from the lake. To
his great wonder it was not more'than 45
seconds after he had begnn that the entire
lake was empty and the wizard's bucket
"Young man, you have done your job
well; here is my reward!" With these words
the wizard handed Arnold his pitcher full
of water; then he vanished, bucket, water

Arnold turned around, and he could
hardly believe his eves when he saw the
wizard with the pitcher, the fairv with the
bunch of leaves and the dwarf" with the
granite block all standing before him.
"Young man," they addressed'him, all
three in chorus, "did you not leave your
home to rind us and make an easv fortune?
Well," they continued before Arnold was
able to reply, "you did find us, but when we
gave you the fortune you threw it away."
"Do you call a rock, a bunch of leaves
and a pitcher of water a fortune?" the
young man said angrilv.
"Yes, we do, for behold, the rock is of

leaving the block of silver, the leaves of

young man joyfully, "and I will quickly

A BOAT WITH A BAD NAME.
Sailors Superstition Make a Boston Yacht
Everybody is accustomed enough to the
fact that sailors are superstitious to a very
high degree,and it is understood that a craft
which they account unlucky stands small
chance of getting a crew. It is not so well
appreciated that educated yachtsmen often
share these superstitions to a marked degree.
One expects to find them smiling at the
notions of the sailors, but the fact is that
atter they have smiled thereat they yield
obedience to the superstitious fear.
A case in point is that of the yacht Sun
beam, a boat which is well enough known to
those who have cruised on the North shore.
A lew years ago the Sunbeam rolled over
on the ways and killed a man, and thereby
the boat so" thoroughly spoiled her reputa
tionthat now there are comparatively lew
who care to sail in her, and although she
has been offered for sale at a price far below
what she wonld readily bring, were it not for
her unlnckly reputation, she cannot be sold.
Perhaps one' should allow something for the
dislike a man might have to feel that there
was" any unpleasant association connected
with a thing so dedicated to pleasure as is a
yacht, but, as a matter of fact, it is to be
doubted it this would weigh very heavily
against a reduced price were it nut that the
secret terror of a superstition it added.
I dreamed not that in all the world,
Or jet in all the skies,
Sly ove still held for me unfurled
Much banners of surprise.
A gleam of bine across the gloom
Of all tho darkest hours

Then blue and cold in showers.

PARLOR CARS IN ENGLAND.
Some Comforts and Discomforts of Euro
THE CRACK TRAIN OF THE C0NT1NEST
nrnrrrsx for na dispatch.j
On the Midland Eailwayfrom Edinburgh
or Glasgow, or from Liverpool, to London,
certain express trains are run with Pullman
cars attached to them, including parlor cars
by day and sleepers by night. For the
parlor car no extra charge is made, but seats
in them are furnished to any first-class
passengers. For a sleeper the supplementary
charge is 5 shillings, or 51 25. On both
cars there are porters who are called "at
tendants," and those I have met were gentle
manly and intelligent men.
I have made three trips between London
and Liverpool in the Pullman day car, of
which there was never more than one on a
train, while there were at least a dozen of
the ordinary compartment cars, or "car
riages," as they are invariably called in
Europe. I noticed that on each of these
journeys not more than three or four of the
chairs were occupied. People in England
appear not to like the parlor car, perhaps
because the interior consists of only a single
apartment for passengers, instead of com
partments each accommodating eight or ten
persons. Probably this is the reason why
no extra charge is made for seats in these
In "the States," or "in America," as our
English brethren generally call our conn
try, travelers are willing and glad to pay
from 51 to $3 a day for the privilege of rid
ing in these luxurious cars. They are pro
vided with every convenience found in a
hotel or private dwelling, the want of which
on a train sometimes causes great suffering,
and always in a journey of any length much
I have been from Liverpool ta London,
and from Calais or Boulogne to Paris, in a
compartment of a carriage. Half the pas
sengers must ride backward, which is far
from agreeable to many. The four corner
seats are always preferred, and travelers go
early to the train to secure them, because
they are near the windows and the doorsand
one can see.the country to better advantage.
SO BOOM TO STRETCH.
Passengers confronting each other for sev
eral hours or a whole" day do not always
know their own legs from their opposite
neighbors', for their lower extremities have
no exclusive rights in the premises. But
our English friend prefers this sort of ac
commodation, as a rule, to the luxury of a
Pullman, for which Americans are willing
to pay a liberal price. I am unable to un
derstand it. For a company of four or six,
who may secure the exclusive occupancy of
a compartment on the Midland, it is allvery
welL To the ordinary traveler, who is one
of a smaller party in a compartment than in
an American car, the partial exclusiveness
he obtains is outweighed by being brought
into closer contact with strangers. They
may be very nice people, or they may be
"When J. landed at Queenstown a quarter
of a century ago I had to go through Ire
land by rail. I had heard about first, sec
ond and third classes on the train. My first
business was to examine the carriages. It
was said that only duker, lords and Ameri
cans traveled first-class. I was not of an
aristocratic turn of mind, and was not dis
posed to spend any extra money on gilt bor
ders and varmsb. I found that the first
class compartment was luxurious in its
limited appointments; but the second class
was provided with only uncushioned seats,
though the floor was carpeted. In the third
class therp was no carpet, and the only
other substantial difference was that the
hard seats of the second were hollowed out
like a kitchen chair, while those of the
third was on a plain board. I went first
I never rode in a second-class car in Eng
land or France till about a year ago. Then
I found the second quite as comfortable as
the first The former have been greatly im
proved in late years. Compartments of all
three classes are sometimes found in the
In winter there is no means of heating
the compartment except by hot water tanks,
shaped like a flattened stovepipe, covered
with carpet or canvas. They are changed
at the stations as occasion may require, or
upon the request of passengers. They keep
the feet warm for a time, and that is about
all the good they do.
CHEAP AND COMFORTABLE.
The Midland Bailway has made the in
novation of abolishing the second class, and
the third class on this road is quite equal to
the second on other lines. Last summer,
when I went to St. Pancras station to take
the train for Liverpool, I asked the porter
who took my baggage from the cab about
the third class compartments. He invited
me to look at one before I bought my ticket
It was carpeted, provided with cushioned
seats, and leading from it was a washroom
and closet I bought a third-class ticket
The compartment had no tinsel ornament,
but it was quite as comfortable as any first
class by which I hadtraveled.
The fares from Liverpool to London in
our money are: First class, S7; third class,
54. On other roads the fare, second class,
is $5 25. The ratio of these rates is 4.3 and
2.3; and it does not vary much all over
Europe. The distance is about 200 miles,
and the fares per mile are 31, 2 2-5 and 2
cents. Between London and Paris, by the
two principal lines, the first class fare is
over 5 cents a mile and the second about 4
In France, Italy, Holland and Belgium
the carriages are about the same as in En
gland; but in Germany and Switzerland the
first-class cars do not differ from those de
scribed, though the second-class are usually
much superior, for they are very often the
same as our ordinary coaches.
In Bussia there is a first-class car, which
has a room in the middle with compart
ments at each end, opening from an aisle at
the side of the car. This anangemeut af
fords seats long enough for a passenger to
lie down upon them, and the car is called a
voiture an lit, or sleeping car. Going from
St Petersburg to Moscow, a place to sleep
is sold for about 52 more than the fare of
either class. The passenger is supplied
with a pillow, but no covering of any kind,
and even in the summer he is likely to be
too cold to sleep. A sort of bunk is made
at each end of the compartment about four
feet above tbe floor, and sometimes over the
two long seats.
A EUSSIAN SLEEPER.
I spent a night in one of these compart
ments. I slept with my overcoat on, and
wore two pairs ot socks, besides my boots;
I mean that I lay thus, lor I conld not sleep
on account of the cold, though it was in the
month of August About 4 o'clock in the
atternoon a Bussian crawled into the bunk
over my head, and slept there till midnight,
when he had evidently "slept out." He
was nervous and uneasy, and fell to smoking
cigarettes with the most tremendous per
sistency. He spit at random from his sleep
ing perch, and I felt that I was in peril all
the time. I could not complain of the
nuisance, for I could not speak Bussian,
and the guard, or conductor, was not up in
English. French or German, though he and
tbe porter knew a few words ot the latter
tongue. If I had been warm enough to
sleep this fellow would have defeated my
best intentions in that respect
In this ooinuartment there was another
Bussian, who was nervous and uneasv. He 1
could not sleep, but he spoke English very
well, and we mingled our sympathies.
"When the train stopped, as it did for from 5
to 30 minutes occasionally, we got out and
Tan on the platform to warm our feet In
each station there was a bar, a restaurant
and a teastand,- which was tbe popular re
THE PITTSBUEG- DISPATCH,
sort of the passengers. The tea was served
in tumblers, very hot, with loaf sugar and
a very thin slice of lemon, and it was de
licious. About midnight my Bussian friend
became desperate because" he could not
"I have drank 11 glasses of tea to-night,
and I can't sleep: I must get another." He
did get another; and the strangest part of it
to me was that he went to sleep soon after
the train started. After that I traveled
first-class in Bussia.
I do not know tbat these voitures an lit
are still in existence, for there is now in Eu
rope a "Companie Internationale des
"Wagons-Lits," which runs its carriages on all
the great routes of the continent I have
before me a pamphlet entitled "Le Sleeping
Car Guide Ofiiciel," in which all needed in
formation in regard to its affairs is given.
The;"wagons-lits," as they are called when
the American term is not used, are run on
the same plan as the Pullman, Wagner and
other cars in this country. I think the
charge, besides first-class fare, is about three
times as much as with us.
A LUXURIOUS TRAIN.
If you wish to go from Paris to Vienna in
26 hours the fare, first class, is 544, though
you may go by another express for 534, tak
ing seven hours longer time. The extra
fare for the sleeper on the fastest train will
be $7 85. By the slower train it will be
56 50. The former is the "Orient Express,"
which runs through from London to Brin
disi, on the Adriatic Sea, from which steam
ers go to Alexandria and through the Suez
Canal to India, China and Australia.
Perhaps I cannot better convey an ade
quate idea of this "train de luxe" than by
relating my own experience for a day on the,
Orient Express, for it is the "crack train of
the continent, and on it travel the nobility
of England, the magnates of France and the
nabobs of India.
The most luxurious trains in America are
those called "Limited Express," rnnning be
tween New York and Chicago. One goes by
the Pennsylvania Bailroad and the other by
the New York Central. They are "vesti
bule trains, provided with reading and
smoking room, a barber's shop and bath,
bar, desks for writing, library, and elegant
sleepers for all the passengers. No ordi
nary coaches are attached to these trains,
and in place of 55 for a berth on an or
dinary train, 57 50 is charged on the "lim
ited." I have traveled on both of these trains,
and I could not well help comparing them
with the Orient Express, the crowning tri
umph of the "Wagon-Lit Company." The
train consisted of sleepers, baggage car,
and a car containing the smoking and din
With my friend and neighbor, Br. L.. I
arrived from the Bhine at Strasburg. We
had bought Cook's tickets in Liverpool
from that city by London (where we had to
go to obtain Cook's circular notes, paid for
in Boston, and promised us in Liverpool),
Harwich, Rotterdam, Cologne, the Bhine
and ronnd to Paris. We went second class,
except on steamers, and in France, where
there was no second class on the express
train. The train we wanted was to leave at
9:25 in the forenoon. Cook's tickets asured
us that they were good on any express
train. When we presented them at the
ticket office where they were to be dated,
we found they were not good except on pay
ment of over 53 apiece, for the train was
the Orient Express. We paid it The porter
could find no seats in the sleepers, and we
were condemned to make the trip in the
NOT LIKE THE LIMITED.
The sleepers were built with an aisle on
one side, the staterooms opening from it.
They looked like the ordinary compartment,
but the seats were reduced to berths at
night They looked very comfortable, but
we were not permitted to occupy seats in
one of them. The smoking-room was not
very bad, though our apartment of the
limited, so-called, is regal magnificence
comdared with it With soiled hands I
went to the wash-room, but there was
neither water nor towels.
Early in the dav a waiter came to ask
who wanted de jeuner. We wanted it, of
course; but, though there was but one
"wagon-lit" on the train, two tables were
necessary for tbe passengers, and we had to
wait till the nabobs of India had finished
their repast When we had it, it was'verv
fair, measnred by the European standard.
The price of this meal was 80 cents, but
most of the passengers paid from 40 cents
to 51 more for the wine. Dinner is served
at $1 20, wine in addition.
This paragon of European trains made
about 35 miles an hour, which does not
equal tbe speed of our "Limited." Iu no
respect could it be compared with onr
ordinary express trains with sleeper or par
lar cars. Not only in trains de luxe, but in
all trains, our system is vastly superior to
railroading in Europe. Oliveb Optic.
MEXICAN SOLDIERS' TRICKS.
They Desert. Leaving Only Cap nnd SIos
keu In Tbeir Place.
Mr. Thomas A. Janvier tells some things
about the Mexican army in the November
Harper which will seem extremely odd to
Americans, but especially so to those inter
ested in military affairs. Many'ot the re
cruits are convicts who have been
drafted into the military service,
and consequently desertions are very
numerous. "Sometimes," says Mr. Jan
vier, "a rather humorous ingenuity is shown
in slipping out of military bondage. In
Monterey one rainy night in March, 1883,
more than a score of men belonging to a
regiment drawn up at a railroad station in
waiting for the arrival of the President, suc
ceeded in getting away by the device of
placing their caps on the butts of their mus
ket's bayonet down in the ground at their
places in the ranks.
"By the uncertain torchlight the platoons
seemed unbroken, and it was only when tbe
order to march was given, and the regiment
marched away and left tbe cap bearing
muskets standing scattered over the ground,
that the trick was discovered by the officers.
Another peculiar thing is that" no baggage
train is needed by these soldiers, for they
carry all that they need on their backs,
even though the wives and the children of
the private soldier sometimes accompany
them. But while wagons are not necessary
to carry the soldiers's impedimenta, they are
required to transport their pay, which is
always in silver."

They flourish on tbe uplands high
And in the valleys low,
In tuaishy places and In dry
In myriads, they grow.

No matter where we chance to walk
We find tbe golden rod.
When autumn, crown'd with yellow weeds
And wreathed with garlands gay.

But first and foremost to my taste
I like the golden rod.
When frost descends, and breezes fan
The woods, no longer green.
And all around, the eve may scan
The atrip t, autumnal scene;
When, Tar and wide, on every tree
The lingering leaflets fade,
Thevolden rod we then may see
In loveliest tints arraj'u.
And bright and brfchter, every day

While flowers tbat once were fresh and gay

Thus mav we, too. when pleasures wane,
In sorrow's gloomy hour, .
To greater loveliness attain

likes to doff the purple now and then, and
act like an ordinary human being. Boston

he wants to in a drugstore after the theater.

"Bide up to-day, Jack?" to Mason. In

INSULTED THE SUPES.
Considerable amusement was caused the
other evening when I was at Vercelli's Bos
ton restaurant Two very nice girls, who,
following the popular stage craze, are "doing
extras" at the Boston Museum, dropped
into the place for dinner. No sooner were
they seated and their order for table d'hote
meal taken, than the waiter, as usual at
Vercelli's. started down tbe room shouting:
The girls flushed furiously. One whisp
ered loudly: "The horrid thing. Let's go
To which the other replied, almost crying:
"How do you suppose he knew? And be
fore all these people, too. Let's quit right
When the soup came the ladies were not
there to eat it, and the rest of us were on a
One other thing that impressed me in Bos
ton was a visible effort to turn economy into
wealth. We in New York know Marie
Jansen as a comto opera singer. I saw her
picture outside of a Tremont street dime
museum labeled, "The wonder of the age
Arabella Montgomery." Further on a litho
graph of the long familiar portrait of Down
ing as a Gladiator, with his loot on an un
known supe's chest, is marked "Billy
Scroot, the -champion knock-'em-ont."
Fanny Davenport's "Fedora" paper is used
lor illustrations of "The Slave's Eevenge,"
or something of the sort, and Lillian Bus
sell passes for Nora Dillwiddy, the violin
gymnast. O, New Yorkers don't always
&uuw wnat tuey are in oiner cities.
PBETTY PINK EABS.
Here in New York the latest socio-thcat-rical
idiocy is to go silly over Mrs. Kendall,
tbe London actress now here. "Society"
adulates her, not because she is a clever
actress and an estimable matron, but because
she has come over with a London vogue.
For one foolish phase of the nonsense, know
the town is full of Kendall ears. This in
novation made itself apparent soon after the
first appearance of Mrs. Kendall, who
"makes up" with less beauty box than the
charming Jane Hading used. A few strokes
of the black pencil on her lashes and brows,
her ears dipped in a rouge pot, and her
hands and arms in a powder sack, and the
healthy, wholesome, tufiy-haired matron is
ready for the glare of the footlights, and tbe
fire of lens and lorgnette. The fancy took
at once, and on the street, under dotted
veils, or in the house under the effulgent
softness of candle light, in the theater, car
riage, cafe and concert ball, tbe painted ears
of lovely womankind outnumber the tinted
cheeksand carmined lips three to one.
By the way, and speaking ot Britons, I
have had a quiet, confidential chat with a
real London swell. I led him into com
paring the merely average girl of New York
society with the average maiden of basbtul
16 in English social circles. The former ex
hibited liberty of action and thought with
out taking liberties. So far, too, the En
glish girl who had aired her rigid home life
in foreign capitals. The American girl had
no fears of Mrs. Grundy, but drew a dagger
line between over confidence and prudery.
His London maiden walked with an invisi
ble Mrs. Grundy at her socialside, and in
almost every word ol conversation and car
riage showed a consciousness of the presence
of that ubiquitous social spectral matron.
The American girl talked as eloquently
with her eyelashes as the French maiden
with tiny shoulder shrugs. Ih"e English
girl weighed in the family scales whatever
she saw nnd heard. The American belle
was ingenuous without wearing her heart
upon her sleeve for jealous daws to pick at.
The thoughts of an English girl were to be
detected only through ft species of doubtful,
misty manner. She was deficient generally
in repartee, and was fond of
DEALING IS TUTJISMS.
The average American reader among
women criticised her author while she read;
but the average Eoglish skimmerof Mudie'a
books seemed to read rather for the' excite
ment of the moment or the exhilaration of
the hour. Does not the gourmet sip hit
Madeira or even his champagne, while the
guzzler greedily swallows bumpers of it?
Frank and fearless modesty adorns the
graces of the American girl, "while tbe En
glish girl often wears the black pearls of
prudery. There you have a Briton's views,
and I think they are complimentary.
A gpod matron still adept in witchery
said to me: "Next in charm to that ex
cellent thing in woman, a low voice, comes
a gentle touch. A way of laying a hand in
a soft, firm, womanly way, a lithe freedom of
fingers, a firm softness ot palm, makes a
charm that may belong to an uglv hand.
Bemember that, girlsl
"Don't shake a person to awaken him,"
the matron continued. "Lay your hand
softly over his closed eyes. Let each finger
tip be firm and sensitive. Don't shake
hands as if vour hand was a foot Let the
fingers do their, part. Don't take hold and
let go all at once. Don't Ob, there are
such a lot of don'lsl Let vour hands be
sensitive. As much can be conveyed by
soft, firm palm aud elastic fingers as by the
modulation of a sweet voice or the droop of
eyelids. Bjr the way, the expression of the
eves is dependent upon the lines formed
about the eyeball by the lids. It is the
drooping of the upper lid that softens the
eyes and the lifting of the lower lid that
makes it cruel and suspicious. That's just
a suggestion. Of course, it's an advantage
to have big eyes, but sensitive lids are more
important to seenre the only real beauty of
the eyes expressiveness. 'Another thing:
It is not so much tbe actual size of the eye
as it is tho clearness of the white which
makes it a conspicuous feature. Another
case of bathtub, girlsl Cleanliness, absolute
and always, is a good inducement for bright
eyes, or, in other words, eyes whose white is
clear. Be good and you will be happy. Be
clean and yon will be beautiful. If you
are beautiful you will be more or less happy
which connects beauty and morality, bath
tub and haupiness, in really a lovely way,
The noise of the busiest street in New
York is nothing compared to the clatter and
Chatter going on from sunrise until sunset
in a small storeroom on Sixth avenue. It
is the storeroom of one of the best known
bird importers in this city, and hundreds of
birds are chirping and talking to each other
to their hearts' content, hnndreds of birds
of all sizes and colors, and from all parts of
the known globe. The little finches, with
their red beaks and brown eyes standing out
of their heads and shining like beads, sit
comically arranged in one long uninter
rupted row so close together that it would
have been difficult to tell where one bird
left off and another began. They look
frightened and not anxious to welcome vis
itors. The graceful love birds in theirpretty
greenish plumage did not interrupt their
flirtations to look at anybody, while parrots
of all sizes and colors turned from right to
left to examine the new-comer and to keep
track of everything going on in the store.
The unaffected canary chirped his beautiful
tune to the end whether anybody listened or
not, as a true artist to whom his own grati
fication is the choicest applause.
"What are your best customers?" asked a
visitor of the dealer. y
"Ladies, of course They all want pets.
The lady who owns a mansion on Fifth ave
nue and is willing to pay any price if a
bird strikes her fancy, and the girl who
works for her living and has to save the
purchase monev from her scanty salary."
"What is the price paid for different
kinds of birds?"
"You can buy a bird for almost any price.
A pair of finches you know the male only
sings and has any value the female is
given into the bargain, ranges from 3 to
$20, and love birds are hardly worth so
much. The imported canary, the only one
that is really a singer, brings from JSlo
$50. A yellow bird of almost the same ap
pearance as tne real canary, is often sold for
a much lower figure, but be is a native of
this country and does not sing at all."
A. VALUABLE PABKOT.
"What are your highest priced birds?"
"At present parrots lead In price and
fashion. They usually sell singly and
range from $5 to $200, but a lady will pay
almost any price if she finds a bird whose
conversational ability is unusually devel
oped. There are parrots in this 'city that
talk in three different languages, and the
chronicles of their sometimes misdirected
accomplishments are endless. The most
wonderlul bird I know of was the parrot of
a teacner ot languages wno became inter
preter in Castle Garden. The man, who
spoke four languages perfectly, was obliged
to study at least a dozen more, necessary to
put tho conventional questions to the immi
grants. He prepared himself for his duties,
practicing Danish, Swedish, Norwegian,
Roumanian, Hungarian, Arabic, Armenian
and a number more of those languages
which are out of the usual run, beside their
varions.dialects. He walked up and down
in his room, talking aloud and asking the
usual questions : "Where were yon born ?"
"How old are you ?" "Have you any rela
tions or friends In this country ?" "Where
are you going ? Have you the money for
traveling 1" etc
"He was closely watched by his parrot,
who proved an apt and willjng pupil, for
he learned to repeat all these phrases and
talked in all tongues 'current iu Castle
Garden. He soon became locally famous
and counted his admirers by the score. One
day a lady made bis acquaintance and tried
to buy him. She was charmed with his
fluency and offered $1,000, but tbe owner
valued him too highly to part with him.
The lady was rich and had set her heart on
this particular bird. The next day 'her
husband called and raised the nriceSSOO.
but the owner was still obdurate. Three
weeks later he unexpectedly needed some
ready money and called on the husband to
accept his offer. At his office he learned to
his dismav and chagrin that the generous
lady had been buried a week. A fortnight
later the parrot mysterionsly sickened and
died. It was a year before tbe linguist
could pass a parrot store without shedding a
tear of regret. I tell you $1600 is a good
deal of money to loek up in a perishable

A very interesting broadside was printed,
not long ago, by a cotemporary, of answers
made by famous women to the question
what they would and would not do if they
The strange part of it is that there should
be so many more women who are anxious to
be men than there are men willing to be
women. 'lis a fact though, fortunately,
physiology bars the realization of the wish.
An Eveless Eden I what tbat wonld be we
partly know from tbe sacred record, and can
partly surmise without the aid of much
imagination. From the male standpoint,
woman is a conundrum which no man is
willing to give upl
If we turn to the broadside above re
ferred to, and try to classify the answers, we
shall find that the women lay their fingers
with emphatic frankness upon the limita
tions of their own sphere, and upon the re
missness of mankind. Around, these two
themes revolves their whole complaint On
tbo one band they nrge that, while the arena
for men is broad and enticing, and holds forth
to success the glittering rewards of wealth,
honor and fame, to women tbe arena is closed,
or, if opened, then so narrowly that they are
only suffered to compete in two or three lines,
under tbe Irown of Mrs. Grundy, without en
couragement, and with the distinct understand
ing that they are to be deprived at last of co
equal recompense. Speaking of the freedom of
men, Louise Chandler Moulton says: "Were I
one I could go alone to Delmonlco's InNewYork
r to the Cafe Anglais In Paris, and no one
would stare at me In wonder! I could start off,
IT the fancy seized me, for Russia, for Aus
tralia, for the Pyramids, round the world if I
liked, without waiting, as now I must, for a
ultable companion wbo wants to go in tbe
same direction. I conld go to tbe theater with
out waiting to be taken or bribing some
amiable old lady to acoompany me. I conld
indulge a sudden fancy for a midnight stroll
under the stars. I could tell a woman I loved
her. In short, I could live a free, natural, un
fettered life. Men are ungrateful for tbelr
privileges, I think. I wonder that tbey are not
a thousand times happier than tbey are. To
be sure, I never heard of one yet who wanted
to be a woman. DidyouT
On tbe other hand, tbe fair responders to the
affirm that they would do to women what men
do not. On this point listen to Mrs. Frank
Leslie: "If I were a man I would try to under
stand women as very few men seem to try to
do. I would study the complexity of their
tastes, loves, dislikes, sensitiveness and in
tuitions, and try to raise my simpler and clum
sier masculine perception to a level with what
most men despise because they do not compre
hend. I would like to be a man for a little
while that a might make love to at least two or
three women in a way that would neither shock
them with Its coarseness nor starve them with
its poverty. As It Is now, most women deny
themselves the expression of the best part of
their love "because they know that It will be
either a puzzle or a terror to their lovers. And
what I would not do If I were a man would be
ever to let go the curb-rein of my own propen
sities. I wonld never let any woman know me
for just what I was by nature, but having dis
covered her ideal ot me would try to live up to
It, or rather co"py It as best I -could. No man
yet has ever been all that the woman who loves
him tries to believe bim. If I were a man I
wonld take care that she never found out her
mistake!" But where is the man wise enough
to do tbisT
But perhaps, after sU, the best remark called
out by tbe discussion Is that which a Western
Journal puts Into tbe mouth ota shrewd femin

A Dnblons Compliment.
A strange illustration of morals aud manners
is given by a village In the Canton of Lucerne,
the beautiful. In Switzerland. Therein is found
a society of old maids numbering 80 members,
whoso ages average but let us not Inquire too
curiously here. Well, this society of profes
sional old maids is under the patronage of tbe
St. Catherine Matrimonial Agency a strange
patron for celibatesl Anyhow, these sisters
perform acts of charity and are held In high
esteem among their neighbors the best test ot
goodness. Kot long ago the Town Council,
composed of course of men (as the sequel alone
would show), presented them vrlth a banner,
upon which this inscription is emblazoned:
"Women are an evil ! but they are sometimes a
blessing! Tbey remind us of the onions that
make us weep, but tbat we love all tbe same.''

of $685,110 and the expenditures were within
less than 11,000 ot this amount. The. gifts of
the churches and in legacies show anight in

history, but only the Otis and Swett funds
saved the board from an embarrassing debt.

30,000 Protestant church members In China,
