London advices say the big North Ger man Lloyd steamer Ems about which the greatest anety has been felt, arrived at , Eyt Monday morning, "bo was towed Into port, having broken her screw framo and been made helptoss, but not otherwlso Injured, for many day. 'I he Ems left Portsmouth fifteen day ago for Now York, ho had 400 souls aboard and should have reached her destination a weok previous to her arrival nt Kiiyal, The greatest alarm was felt by persons having friends on board and by the owners of the boat, she being considered the fastest and best craft of the North Herman Lloyd Company. Many experienced navigators had glren up tho steamer for lost, nnd It was even reported that she had run afoul of an Ice berg nnd been sunk, ns tho old Oulon line steamer Arizona did In 1870. Tho arrival of many craft showing the ravages of Ico and storms made thn loss of the Ems seem probable. Her safety, therefore, I doubly gratifying. The Ems was towed to her shelter at Fayal, Aroro Islands, by tho learner Wild Flower, hound out from Wil mington, Del Tho mishap to the steamer occurred a tew days after she left South ampton and thereafter she was obliged to proceed under sail a best she could.

In Now Mint opals havo toon restored to favor and It Is understood that, Instead of being orr.cns of Ill-fortune they tire really lucky stones, It Is cay to understand why supernatural" agencies have been ascribed to the fascinating gcni, nnd It may be of In tercst to learn something of how to bcit preserve Its brilliancy und beauty, says the New York Sun. There Is probably no other stone so MUcepttblc to outside Influence as an opal. Thn stone Is a soft stone, compared with other items, and the flashing of It colors Is duo to the re fraction of light on the tiny scale and almost Invisible lUsurcs within tho stone, which act like a prism, ill vldlng the light und throwing out all the varying hues of tho rainbow. The play of color Is constantly changing. Dullness and brilliancy succeed each other with the regu larity of atmospheric variations, moderate warmth having a distinct laminating effect, whllo much heat is capable of robbjm the atone of all its beauty by drying the ruoTsttlr'8 contained in the minute cells.

Sir Walter Scott, in his nt offlco of Importance, but has for "An 110 Of Gclprsteln." distorts the properties 01 tho opal to ncigntcn tno uncanny clement in his story, and to carry out this plot makes use of tho supernatural. To this story may be traced that "uncomfortable reeling" about an opal which people not at all superstitious in other matters can not seem to shake off. If a man or woman attempts to wear one, friends and acquaintances continually bring up the old superstition until the un canny stono sometimes ceases to de light But it is time this old super stition bo sent flying after tho old witch and her broomstick; for In the old days the stone was highly prized as an omen of good-tortnne. Most of the finest opuls come from Hungary, but the principal vein has. been exhausted lately, so that the gem In Its finest variety is exceed ingly rare.

Cooks have the!r rights as well as others people, and that is the 0110 reason why the restaurants of New York ure crowded every Sunday night by the people who have numerous servants, including capable cooks. It was a custom for many years, no body knows exuetly why, savs the New York Sun, to eat a heavy din ner in the middle ot the day on Sun day. During tho prevalence of this custom the cooks inado It u point t'j take Sunday night off, and that point hus now becomo a prerogative. Men who dlna six days in the week at 7 are invarably overloaded awl uncom fortable when they dine in the mid dle of the duy on Sundays. The effort to lu'e. Sunday night dinner at 7 o'clock has retail tod in a Hut and iudublUblo falluro wherevor at tempted by householders, and so the knot has bean cut by ullowlng the cook to have her regular Sunday night off, while the master of the house and his wife go to a restaurant, and tho children scurry about for themselves.

Famous tuon of every conceiv able wulk of life dine out at these places. Tho general public is fnmlliar with the'r faces, hut, not ' with those of tho'r w'.ve! There Is often a very strong contrasts as, for instance, a small, famous lawyer and his ponderous, domineering wife, who tips the beam at 250 pounds and bullies tne waitcr;u ranious statesman, naromcter of tho Mennte. The movements of the press gallery ovei looking the so 11 a to chamber at Washington are doubtless tho safest barometer of the importance of the doings on the floor below, says the Post If the gallery seats are well taken up something is surely trans spiring in the chamber that is worth watching, if they are empty the proceedings are apt to possess no in terest The public may be mistaken and the visitors' galleries may be over flowing, but the curloui seekers do not possess the delicate instinct of foretelling impending crises, and if the press gallery be empty, though expectancy be written on every face that peers down from the cowded balconies, no gladiatorial feats of competing oratory need bo looked for, and disappointment will overtake him who disregards the signs. When Mr. Gorman arojo to reply to Senator Sherman not trior; then two or Jhroe heads a'pip.area above tho row 01 seat in the press gallery. Once or twice Mr Gorman's cyo wandered tafeTossly in thai direction ana en countered a tire of vacant seats but ho had not got far Into his subject before head after head appeared over tho row of desks, as if by somo subtle magic, forty or fifty men were in their seats following tho debate with close attention and mentally register ing their comments on the proceed ings. Each man had come from a different direction and from every conceivable corner of the vast bkek of corridors and committee-room. No one had told them what was on. It was tho Indctlnable instinct of Impending news development- Wild Uonrs. A wild boar Is always pictured as a fcro.ious beast, and hunters agrco that thovwouldiassoon meet a lion. Ilbt young wild boars ure far prettier than any one would suspect In their wild state, however, no one has bad an opportunity to inspect them closely, and it Is only In a zoo logical garden that their good points can bo appreciated. Their bodies are slim and elegant, their snouts tine, their ears short, and tholr legs und feet almost as tlnely shaped as those of a young antelope. Their color Is a bright fawn or a rich tun, with longitudinal stripes like thoso of a tabby kitten; and, In placo of tho thick bristles of tho other pigs, their liodles -arc-covered with along and thick coat of rough hair. Family 11 e in the wild boars' quar ters Is harmonious and amusing. For tho tlrse month the little orange striped pigs depend on their mother for rood, una take no notice either o( visitors or of each other. Each roams about by itself In the most independent fashion, or drops down to sleep on its stomach, with its legs strotched straight out before and behind like a kneeling elephant in miniature. Later. whcn,they have to bo.satls tied with the' food provided in the troughs, thoy become the most amus ing und Importunate beggurs in tho zoo, the old cow nnd boar setting tho example, well supported by tho little pigs. The whole family stand upright ou their htad legs In a row, with tholr fore-feet against tho rails, und s iueak, grunt, und even climb the wire net ting for contributions. ffhe Driver Tried te Ran It Down and Wrecked Hie Coach.

He was reeling pretty frisky that morn ing, and when tho sunjras well-risen and the earth began to warm up he became positively gay.

Tho driver braced him self and begun to nnndlo tho lines llko an expert and to swing from one side of the road to tho other in pur suit of tho goose. Tho stage rocked back und forth like a ship nt sea. This continued for some distance. He was trying to run over tho goose. At last the bird veered out of tho road up over the bank nnd out went the horses and coach over tho bank, too. It was too much for tho couch and it tipped over.

Holy Well In tho Rrltlsh late. Among tho pretty dying supersti tions the belief In holy wells, wish ing wells, and fulry wells is among tho most pleasing and the oldest, says an English writer. Mr. Hope, F. S. A., has compiled an agreeable uccountof tho "Holy Wells of Eng land," ulbolt his nntiquurlnnlsm Is nf the most old-fashioned. Ho distin guishes two sorts ot tlqgends about wells,""1 sacred and pagan," 'meaning by sucred, Hebrew. But tho story nf the holv wells In Palestine come from tho samo far-off source ns tho stories of other countries; In these minor I cllefe and customs tho Jews were not different trotu their neigh bors. Tho various peculiar properties of wells wero naturally ascribed to a supernatural -cause a naiad, a nymph, a fairy, or, later, to a proohet or a saint Pausanlas tells of a well which grew troubled, and caused clouds to rlso and rain to fol low, when tho priest of Zeus Ly cutis performing a certain right. Ho mentions a spring sacred to Dcmeter which was usoU in divination. A mirror was lowered to tho surface of tho water, and tho reflection yielded an omen as to the recovery of tho pa tlont who consulted this oracle. So at Gulval in Cornwall there is a di vining well, Saint Madcrn's. Peo ple consulted an old women who lived there as to whether their ab sent friends wore in sickness or health. In tho former case tho well grew discolored, in tho latter It bub bled, and If the person wero dead It remained us usual. This wus an un lucky kind ot well, tho odds being long that the wutcr continued in its natural state. For ull theso virtues offerings uve tnude to the wells of pins, smuil coins, or rags attached to tho neigh boring bushes.
