A Sick Girl's Heroic Deed Recogniz ed at Washington. MI'SEI'M TBKASUBBS KNOWN To KKW RESIDENTS. This city is splendidly stocked with heroes, real heroes, of flood, field and fire, and most ef them admit that their honors came tojlhem unexpeotediy and by mere accident, but one of the most remarkable is Miss Jennie MeCaan, a modest girl whom the United States has just summoned to Washington to receive a gold medal awarded toher for having saved nine lives. Several years ago the excursion steam General Solcum was destroyed by lire, as were many of her passengers who were not drowned. Jennie McC'ann, then only fourteen years old and just convalesc ing from typhoid fever, was living on an island near the steamer's course. Seeing the moving mass of flame she hurried to the shore and out into the water, where she rescued, one by one, nine different children who had jump ed overboard or had been thrown over in the hope that drowning might be a less agonizing death than burning. It wasn't the kind of job that a doctor or a whole college of doctors would have selected for a slight girl who has been down with typhoid fever, but it was one that needed to be done and she was the only person at hand to do it, so she does not yet understand why such a fuss is made over her and why the leaders of both Houses of Congress thought it an honor to be asked to be present at the formal giving ef the medal. As to the children who were rescued and are now old enough to have heard of heroic women, they think more highly of Jennie McCann than of Boadicea and Ida Lewis and Florence Nightingale and Joan of Arc combined and their parents and friends are of the same state of mind. One of the disadvantages of living in New York is that a man's out-of-town acquaintances may display more know 1 edge about the city than the resident himself. The latter feels sheepish about it, and resolve to shed his ignorance at the first opportunity—whioh never comes. lam being reminded of this by friends as far west as Alaska, also in Europe, who write me of treasures in our two great museums in Central Park— treasures which I never saw, al though I have been in each museum at least once in three years—sometimes oftener,—if I had a visitor from out-of town over Sunday and all other places but the churches were closed. The mere annual additions to either of these great collections would make a per petual wonder-house for a city of mod erate size; for example, the Museum of Art has acquired more than ten thou sand new objects in the past two years and the Museum of Natural History has been equally active, setting up, among other things, some gigantic fos sils that would make all our local drunkards swear off" forever could they be shut up wtth these monsters for an hour. There is also a new bird collec tion, of American species only, which foreign naturalist say is unequalled in Europe for size, beauty and complete ness, it is an exhaustive object lesson in American ornithology and all under one roof, although it cost nearly a hun dred thousand miles of travel, eight years of hard work, and more money than the givers care to talk about. Yet you might safely bet a thousand to one* that no man you meet in the street will mention these things or confess to have heard of them. It is the same with everything not out of doors Jand on a trolley-car route. It recalls a story of the late Jay Gould, whose wits were all there and whose longings were not re stricted to stocks and bonds and rail way lines. One day in his old office overlooking Trinity churchyard, he lold a visitor that he hoped some day to visit the graves of three great men, if they were not too distant—Alexan der Hamilton, our first Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin, (who was given Hamilton's job for the purpose of finding fault but honestly admitted that there was no fault to be found) aud Robert Fulton, the pioneer of transportation by steam. The visitor red Mr. Gould to his own window, pointed downward and said, "There they are." And there they were, a scant hundred feet apart iv Trinity churchyard, and Mr. Gould exclaimed, in the vernacular of his native state — New York, "Well, 1 never!" There are others.

STILL UNKNOWN TO MANY PBOPUL You wouldn't think, would you, tha there could be anything new in sucl an old thing as court plaster ? Bui there is, that is comparatively new this novelty being only about 10 or 11 years old, and still unknown to man) people. Since time out of mind, as in fact i still is most commonly, court plagtei has been made and sold in smooth lit tie sheets, more or less disposed to cur up, from which, when you had occa sion to use it, you cut off a piece of suit able size. And then somebody had ar idea—court plaster that you dint hay« lo cut off but that you could tear off as required. Still further back, when postage stamps were first brought into use, tc be printed as they still are, in sheets, it was soon recognized that some othei means of separating them than by cut ting them apart would be convenient, and then somebody suggested punch ing the spaces between the stamps full of little holes, so that the stamps in the sheets could be readily torn off; an idea, this, of such utility that it has remain ed in use to the present day. The new court plaster idea was along the same lines, resulting in the novelty of perforated court plaster as it is now sold. But the court plaster perfora tions are a little different from those made in sheets of postage stamp*; in two ways. In the postage stamp perforations lit tle disks of the paper are punched com pletely out, and the lines of perforations run either way at regular intervals. In the perforated court plaster the perfora tions are made with knife-edged cut ters which make little slits in the plas ter left between, and these cutters are set in the face of the die in such form as to cut the little sheet of plaster not into sections of uniform size, but to in close spaces of various sizes, so that you can tear off from a little sheet of perforated court plaster a piece of any size you want. As in court plaster in general, it is made on silk, on tracing cloth and on muslin, and there is also a heavier court plaster made on kid. Court plaster is made in green, flesh color, black and white. Of these colors, flesh color is the one in greatest demand, with white next, black third and green last. And what does anybody want green court plaster for? Why, one thing they use it for is in mending of the cloth on billiard tables. Some highly scientific amateur makes a beautiful masse shot or a wonderful draw, tear ing the cloth incidentally, and later they mend this rent with a piece of green court plaster, put on neatly, and matching the cloth in color. But court plaster of one color or an other has various uses besides that in which it is most familiar, as, for in stance, it is used in mending books, in place of sealing wax in securing en velopes, and in mending torn bank notes. Formerly all the court plaster used in this country was imported from Eu rope; now 95 per cent of the court plas ter sold here is made here, and Ameri can court plaster is exported, some to Europe and more to Spanish-American and to Asiatic countries. A MISNAMED EXHIBIT. BRINGS .lOY TO THE MUSEUM VISITORS AND WORRIES THE CURATOR. A curator at the Metropolitan Mu seum of Art is threatened with insan ity, the cause being a small misnamed exhibit in the gallery outside his office door. "Twenty times a day," declared the harassed man, "people discover that that china statuette out in the Frank lin collection is named General Wash ington instead of Benjamin Franklin. Then they burst in here and announce their discovery and wonder that no one ever noticed it before. Half my time is spent in explaining that we know it well, that it was simply a mistake ol the potter who labeled it in France over a century ago and that we cannot change it nor wouldn't if we could. "Of course I tell them this courteous ly and patiently, and you know .what a strain that is when you are going over the same thing for the thousandth time? I'd latch the door, only there are too many employees seeking me all day long, so here I must sit and listen to the names of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin repeated a mil lion times till I wish that neither of those glorious patriots had ever lived. And it's driving me insane, I tell you, it's driving me insane !" Just then the door opened and a ladj popped in with: "There's a statue out here named General Washington, but I'm sure"— and the weary curator, being a south erner, rose smillingly to his task.—New York Times. Mrs. Mary McCoy, who was said to be the oldest postmaster in the ooun try, has just sent in her resignation, af ter having been in the office more thar 40 years, at Sheakleyville, Pa.

Its cures of eczema, ever sores boils, burns and Piles, astound th< world. 25c at B. F. Hughes ! THEY STAKE LIFE VERY CHEERFULLY CHIXKSK ▲ JCATIOM OF GAMBLERS WHO BHT OX EVERYTHING. Gambling kas become a national trait of the Chinese and there isn't a thing, however trivial, that they won't take chances on. The itinerant trades man, huckster* and others at the road side have their bowls into which are thrown dice. Gambling houses are everywhere and, though nominally under th* ban, oontinue to de a flourish ing business by bribing the local of ficers. One can't expect anything bet ter from the latter when they have been brought up to the same thing and always keep In practice themselves. Even the women in their own private apartments while away the hours with cards and dominoes. Gossip and gaming are about the only employ ments as well as recreation for the women of the upper and middle class es. Coolies between jobs spend most of their lime aud hardearned cash gambling. The Spaniards have their bull fights, the Americans their pugilistic encount ers, but the contest dear to a China man's heart is a cricket fight, or, some times, a quail tight. Hundreds of dol lars are lost aud won on these contests. But on things of deeper import do they gamble aUo, even on life itself, taking wonderfully long chances. This may arise in part from the fact that they are more or less fatalistic in belief and that the great majority of them cer tainly have but little in their lives to make life attractive. With millions of them it is not much more than animal existence. As a last stake, put up in desperation in the hope that luck will change, the Chinese offers his finger. It is a test of courage and honor and means much more than is evidenced on the surface, for a Chinese firmly believes that as he leaves the world so will he be in the next. On account of this belief it is of ten impossible to get consent to am putate a disease or injured member, though the patient himself can see that it is his only chance. But his innate gambling spirit and his superstitious ideas make him willing to take the long chance, grim death only too often tak" ing the trick. No matter how hungry a Chinese may be, he would rather spend his last cash playing for his dinner with eight or nine chances in ten that he will go hungry until the exchequer is re plenished, which may not be until next day, thau buy what he needs outright. Every block or two along a city's streets are the foo J . gamblers with, their baskets of near-food on their arms. They call attention to their wares by the rattle of the narrow, numbered strips of bamboo which they shako up and down in a hollow joint of bamboo with a piece of skin tied over one end. In other words, they carry their slot machines with them. It is a drawing or not of the right strips that deter mines whether the gamester will have a feeling of satisfaction under the girdle or have to draw it an inch or two tigh ter to quiet the gna wings of an "aching void." In crossing the -Pacific one gets a good idea of the universality of gam bling among this people. On fair days the lower deck is often completely fill ed with groups of pig-tailed Celestials chattering and gesticulating as though they were bent on taking each other's lives over their cards, dice or dominoes. "To prevent salt in salt-cellars from becoming damp lumpy, when filling them put in ten to twelve pieces of rice," says Woman's Home Com panion for September. "This will not come through the holes in the cover of the salt-cellar, but will break the lumps of salt and gather the moisture; thus the salt is always dry and fine." ♦-♦ *>-+-• The indications point to an unusally large cocoa crop for the coming seasc n in San Domingo.
