Marriage Increasing in England.
Great Britain is flourishing. The
dure test is the marriage record shown
in the Registrar General's annual report
just issued, in which it appears
that the rate is higher than itha.s been
in twenty-one years. The Registrar
points out that a marriage rate usually
keeps in close touch with the value
of British exports and imports., and
the price of wheat. Up goes trade,
and up goes the marriage rate! Not
exactly romantic, but eminently practical.
It seems that widowers have
been in greater demand than widows,
for 98 ont 100 of the men married in
the course of the year were widowers,
whereas only 69 out of 1000 of the
women who married were widows.
Nearly half of the bachelors and
spinsters were married between the
ages of 21 and 25. The favored age
for the re-marriage of widows and
widowers was between 35 and 40. In
one out of every 100 of the marriages,
husband and wife could neither read
nor write, and signed the certificate
with their mark.?New York Press.

as though gifted with a special sense.

This home is tilled with nice little
girls who have brown hair and black
eyes and black hair and brown eyes,
but they are all passed by when the
elegant women come to search for a
child to adopt.
Why it is that childless women
must have only the blonde variety of
youngster the managers at the homo
are unable to say, but they declare
this to be the case. Nine out of ten
of the requests for children stipulate
that the little one must be about "two
years old, with curly blonde hair and
blue eyes."
Perhaps it is because angels and
cupids and all the light and airy creatures
of fancy are usually pictured as
being fuzzy blondes -with sky bine
eyes. And, of course, a woman who
has never had any children is always
looking for the ideal in this line.
>> Blonde children, however, as is well
known by the experienced, are as
prone to evil as the darker varieties.
In fact, a blonde youngster can perform
as much mischief in a minute as
some brunettes can think of in a
week. The little saintly blonde, with
its wide eyes and open countenance,
readily disarms suspicion and while
you are engaged in prait ing and petting
it, it is secretly planning an assault
upon the raspberry jam or figuring
out how it is going to break into

Blonde youngsters are more sly
than brunettes, and though light ol
countenance they are dark plotters
and schemers.
They will eat all the oranges in tho
cellar and make you think the rats
have carried them off. They will
break the bric-a-brac and lay it to the
cat. They will dig up the garden and

It is a strange thing how every
mother is partial to her golden-haired
darling. Such a mother may bo a

her nature, but she will swear by that

to the limit.
Only the neighbors can Bee the

This is particularly sad inasmuch
as the majority of homeless children
are brunettes. In the home in Twenty-ninth

A Ureal Autograpn collection.
The owner of probably the greatest
private collection of autographs in the
world, Alexander Polonyi, has died in
Vienna. His collection was so la^e
that it filled the entire upper story of
his house. Polonji possessed the
autographs of over 30,000 persons,
not only of moderns, but of mediaeval
and renaissance persons as well. He
was not particular as to age, religion,
profession. All he stood out for was
that the autograph was to be that of a
person of certain historical importance.
He possessed original writings
which have not yet been printed
of Michael Angelo and Marie Antoinette,
letters by Calvin and Luther,
Schiller and Goethe, pages of music
by Wagner and Beethoven, original
documents from the eleventh century, I
private letters of Canovas, old Hebrew
scrolls, and sermons by famous
Hussites. It was Polonyi's greatest
pleasure to show his treasures to
scholars and to bewilder them with
the wealth and variety of the materials
which he plsced before them in
tho calculated disorder we have attempted
to describe. He began life
a& an apprentice to a Leipzig bookqleller.
His greatest success was with
a magnificent collection of Durer's
drawings, which he happened on quite
accidentally and sold to the Royal
Gallery in Berlin for a prodigious sum
of money. Polonyi nad no scientific
or historical knowledge, but he had a
genius for collecting, and it was as a
3ollector he was known throughout
the world.?Leisure Hours.
Horses Tlint Sleep UpMnlrg.
It is not unusual to see bedding
placed on the window sill of upper
6iories of houses to air; there were
9een the other day projecting over a
window sill in the second story of a !
building some fragments of bedding of
another kind, these being wisps of
straw from a horse's stall close by.
These wisps had not been placed there
to air; they had just happened to get
there, but they served to bring to
mind the fact thathuman beings are
not the only creatures that sleep in
rooms upstairs. In a city like Chicago,
where ground is of high value,
great numbers of horses sleep upstairs,
too; only, of course, they don't go upstairs
as humane do, but up an inclined
plane called a runway, leading |
from one story to another and covered
with leather scraps or tanbark, or
sometimes with discarded rubber hose'

and close together up the slope.
The Stature of Hitler*.
In point of stature the rulers of to
day compare very unfavorably with j
their predecessors. Christian I., King '
of Denmark, was seven feet high. The I
present Danish king, Christian IX., j
barely reaches five feet eleven inches,
and his son, King George of Greece,
is four inches shorter. The same
physical decline seems to mark the
Czar of Russia. Peter the Great was
a Riant of six feet ten inches. The
Czar of to-day barely reaches five feet
six inches. The late German EmDeror.
William I., was six feet high,
and his brother, Prince Charles, wa3 j
but an inch shorter. The present
Kaiser cannot stretch himself beyond
five feet eight inches. The King of
tho Belgians, with six feet four inches
of stature, is the tallest of the ruling
monarchs, and Queen Victoria, with
four feet ten inches, two inches le63
even than the present Chinese Emperor,
is the shortest.

Fire Drill In Boaton.
We met with a single adventure the
other night. Our friend Sonberger
lives in the well-known apartment
house, the Despondia. This house ie
one of a long'block, and Sonberger's
fiat is on the top floor. There was
some delay about answering the bell.
Finally a questioning voice was reassured
and the door was opened. To
our amazementwe found Sonberger in
pajamas, his charming wife in something
soft, fluffy, bewitching, and little
Harold in his night shirt and with a
tin horn in his hand. (We have known
the Sonbergers for years.) "For
heaven's sake, old man, are you crazy?"
we asked, with voice toward husband
and appreciative, respectful eyes to- 1
ward wife. Sonberger smiled a feeble 3
smile. "You see, we practice the fire 1
drill every night. We were just going '
out on the roof. Ever since those J
fires in New York we have been more

Old-Time Words. '
Old words survive to a remarkable 1
degree in north Derbyshire, and the |
country districts of Lancashire. Perhaps
the most interesting is "Yah,"
which the rustics of the Peak frequently
use for "Yes," and which they employed
exclusively thirty years ago,
when manv of them had never seen a
railway. Sounded exactly like the i
German "Jah," it is evidently a de- !
scendant of the Anglo-Saxon "Gen,"
and must, therefore, be more than a
thousand years old. In Lancashire
the commonest antiquity in speech is
"Gradeley," the meaning whereof is
"Beaily.genainely, thoroughly." Both :
counties are happy in the use of j
"Nesh" (Anglo-Saxon: Nesc), an admirable
word, which ought to be rein^

Wounds caused by Mauser bullets
bealeil with wonderful and unexpected
rapidity. The small frontage of these

Paper Collar* in the 60'a.
In the late 60's the enormous con ramption
of paper collars was not reitricted
to the United States. Exsorting
them to Canada and Central
ind South America added hundreds
if thousands to the annual revenues
of the paper collar manufacturers.
\n American firm erected a plant at
;he Paris Exposition of 1867 and
nanufactured collars before the eyes
)f astonished visitors. Immediately,
ind as a result of this exhibition,
>rders were received in this country
'or the necessary machinery, and
paper collar manufactories were estabished
in Germany, where a tremenlous
business flourished for a time,
that country supplying nearly all
Europe -with paper neckwear. The
Srst plant was established in Leipsic,
lud is still operating, although all the
jthers have ceased to exist.
Origin of the Elevator.
Thfi elevator originated in central
Europe. The earliest mention of the
levator is made in a latter of Napoeon
I., addressed to his wife, the
Archduchess Maria Louise. He writes
;o her that, when in Schoenbrunn,
;h9n the summer residence of the
Austrian emperor, near Vienn% he
ised the "chaise volante" (nying
;hair) in that castle, which had been
constructed for Empress Maria Theresa.
It consisted of a small, square
room, sumptuously furnished with
tiangings of red silk, and suspended
by strong ropes with counter-weights,
*o that it could be pulled up or let
3own with great ease in a shaft built
tor the purpose about 1760.

The Vies of Zinc.
The largest consumers of zinc are
the manufacturers of galvanized iron
work. Tben come the brass founders,
for zinc is an important element in
brass alloys, and large quantities are
used in the sheet form and as an element
in galvanic batteries. Zinc is
put under stoves and is used to line
Great quantities of the ore are used
also to make zinc white, or zinc oxide,
for paint, but this is made direct from
the ores and is not materially affected
by the present rise of values, the zinc
oxide having gone up only about half
a cent a pound in price. Of this the
United States imported at one time
about 30,000 barrels a year. Now we
can export it as we do the metal and
ore. Our exports of the ore were
only 48,000 pounds in 1895, but last
year rose to 21,040,000 pounds, while
our exports of pig rose in the same
period from about 3,000,000 pounds
to 21,000,000.?New York Sun.
