Caaatry Lada Boys who are fortunate enough to be born In the country hare unmistakable ad vantage over city Uda. The country la the place of all others to be born In. The associations of youth, of home, of school, winter, and the farm work and play mixed together in a delightful tangle, are never rooted out, but grow deeper into the char acter and become dearer to the being while life passes and the revolving years bold out. It la worth more than a university edu cation to have been born and brought op on a farm, of well to do parents. That supplies what no learning from the books ever can. . That ia a resource that stands by. It is something to feed upon. And If the boy as a man engages in bald ness or a profession, be baa a stock of health and a sound constitution to draw upon that will be sure to carry him tri umphantly through when the city boys are giving way all along the road.

Cooking a Steak Broiled of Course, Never wash a steak if it can be avoided. This advice does not meet with the appro bation of some cooks, but these neat bodies are very careful if the meat is given a drenching to wipe It perfectly dry before cooking. Before you place your steak on the broiler see that your fire is a glowing bed of coals, and have close at band butter, salt, pepper and a hot platter. Now place the cut on the broiler and drop It upon the coals for two minutes, when It must be turned. In this way you secure the juices, and it is then ready to receive a more moderate treatment. Watch it constantly, and turn so dexterously that it will not smoke or scorch. Ten minutes is all that is needed for rare broil. Take a keen blade and cut into the thickest part. If the heart has lost its purple tinge transfer at once to the dish. Sprinkle liberally with bits of butter, salt and pepper. Unless you have a hot water -dish do not send the steak in to the table until all the family are seated. Tough steak may be mode eatable by laying it on a board and making slight incisions in the meat, when, if it is rubbed with the strained Juice of a lemon and placed on ice over night, it will be ready for breakfast. Philadelphia Inquirer. Boarded Cold Found. A story is told at Martinsville to the effect that Frederic G. Axt, who died last week, left to his wife, daughter and son (10,000 in gold which be had kept carefully secreted in an old trunk. His son Wil liam engaged in business with a leather house in Indianapolis fifteen years ago. His sister married a Mr. Bernhardt and preceded him to that city. The father and mother have lived alone and very econom ically all that time, as only Germans can. Mr. Axt revealed the hidden treasure to his family a few days before his death, and the trophy was borno off to Indianapolis and deposited In bank. The family told friends that they thought he bad a sum of money secreted, but were surprised at the lar;e amount. The money was never given In for taxation, and the county officials are now doing their best to recover ou the same. Indianapolis Sentinel. Ancient Watches In China.

Farther efforts are being made to pre serve historic Maliiiaison, once the resi dence of the Empress Josephine, from falling into the hands of some Nine teenth century vandal, who would prob ably demolish it iu order to raise "jerry built" suburban villas on its site. The old palace is in a rather bad condition, being destitute of 1'urniture, tapestry and proper ornamentation. The two facades one on the courtyard and the other on the garden-are in a tolerably good condition, as well as the windows, staircases and ceilings. The rooms might easily bo rearranged in their old order and style. The vast porch, the dining room, with its figures of nymphs, marble floor and fountain, the council chamber shaped like a mili tary tent, the library, the salon of the Empress Josephine, with the bedroom at tached, are in a fair state of preserva tion, Malmaison park has already been cut np for building lots, and several small houses with gardens now exist on the property. . The place was purchased in Septem ber, 1788, by Josephine, for 6,400 paid partly out of her marriage portion and partly out of the military allowance of her husband, then General Bonaparte. When First Consul Napoleon spent his leisure hours at Malmaison, and in the early days of the First Empire, the place was for Josephine what the Petit Train on was for Marie Antoinette an agree able change from palatial splendor. Af ter the death of Josephine, in May, 1814, Malmaison had no occupants of note un til Napoleon returned there for a few days before his last exile. Prince Eugene de Beauharnais looked after the property during his lifetime, bnt in 1826 his heirs sold it to a Swedish banker. In 1841 Queen Maria Christina of Spain bought it and sold it in 1861 for 44,000 to the Emperor Napoleon III, who made a present of it to the state,. Under the third republic Malmaison has been neglected and allowed to lapse into its present deplorable condition. It was sold to private persons and now awaits other owners. London Tele graph. Dogs Testifying In Court. "Hold up your right hand and be sworn," said Squire Tyrrell, addressing Hector, a large mastiff, in court in Cin cinnati. The dog bad been summoned as a witness, and in compliance with the magistrate's demand Hector held up his right f orepaw and commenced barking. The case was one in which Dr. Buck proved to the court that Hector and Dane, another large dog, belonged to him. The two had strayed away, and August Schmelt, a saloon keeper, got possession of them and would not give them back to the owner. Dr. Buck had taught the animals cer tain tricks, one of which was to imitate a witness giving testimony, and he gave the magistrate a list of questions. "Where's your master?" asked the court of Eector. The dog went to the rear part of the room and picked out Dr. Buck from a large crowd of specta tors. The same question was asked of Dane, and he went through the same perform ance. "Where's Dane?" was asked of Hector. The dog looked at Dane and barked. "Where's Hector?" was asked of Dane. The latter looked at Hector and barked. The two mastiffs were given to Dr. Buck. Cor. Philadelphia Record. While supposed to be leading a eon tem pi tire hfe he was going about the country stealing like a gypsy. His dep redations having been brought to the notice of the proper authorities, the gendarmes were sent ont after Jean, and he was captured at Bt Paul. The gyres were promptly placed upon his wrists, and he was marched between two stern faced men to the prison of Prades, where he will remain in real seclusion from the world for a consid erable period. Paris Cor. London Telegraph- Bat-lad la Bis Own Coma. The late Earl of Essex was buried in a coffin of oak designed twelve years ago by the deceased nobleman himself, who was a prominent member of the Funeral Reform association. It had what is called "open trellis work" around it and was filled with choice herbs and ever greens. There have been many people of recent years some of them prominent in other ways, who have had their cof fins made to order long before the ap proach of death. Maybe the originator of the fashion was Lord Nelson, who used to keep standing upright in the cabin of the Victory a coffin that an ad mirer had presented to him one birthday anniversary, and in this coffin his lord ship's remains were at laBt put to rest. Philadelphia Bulletin. The Pausing of Parties. No party remains virtuous more than twenty years. That also is in the nature of things. Supremacy is demoralizing. The Democrats now take the govern ment by order of the popular vote, and they will keep it so long as they are true to their trust no longer. When they become derelict somo other party, no matter by what name it may be called, will issue an order of eviction. Ihe country is forever safe in the hands of the people. It is never safe for any pro longed period in the hands of any party, New York Herald. 000.

Tickled Almost ta Death, Tommy Pooler, about nineteen Tears old, one of the nervous sort known as 'jumping Frenchmen, was forcibly held by a young negro and tickled so severely that he burst a blood vessel. Hemorrhage from the mouth and nose resulted, and this the physicians have been unable to stop. The priest f.xm Waterville was sent for and arrived Monday night Tuesday Pooler was very low and apparently near his end. Dex ter Cor. Eastern Argus. Crimes Among the English Clergy. Labouchere recently printed in Truth the following as a record of a year's do ings of the British clergy: "Breach of promise. 14; cruelty to animals, 18; bank rupts, 254; elopements, 17; suicides, 12; drunkenness, 121; assaults, 109; various other charges, 84." The Restriction of Immigration. Shall immigratiop be restricted, and, if so, how and to what extent, is one of the important questions that will in all probability occupy the attention of the coming session of congress. Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire, is the chairman of a committee on the sub ject which is now sitting in this city, not for the purpose of taking testimony, but of discussing amendments to the law. His views on the subject are rad ical, but not moie so than those of the Knights of Labor as enunciated by Mr. Powderly. The New Hampshire senator and the general master workman are both of the opinion that immigration should be pro hibited for a period of years, Mr. Chan dler placing the limit at five. "Wages," he asserts, "cannot be maintained up to their present standard in this country unless immigration is stopped. If wages are reduced the Democrats will be swept out of power by popular sentiment." He adduces these as reasons why, were he a Democrat, he should vote for the five years' suspension. Republicans and Democrats are alike interested in the preservation of the re public, in its growth, progress, develop ment, on sure, broad, steady, time en during lines. To that end let us all unite. The republio should be the first care of every American, no matter to what party he belongs. New York Recorder. Sums Wagered on the Tnrf. There are no data obtainable in this country upon which even a remote ap proximation could be made as to the total of the sums wagered in tne cours of the year upon turf events. That it is large may be safely assumed; but we should doubt much whether the French, in their comparatively recent fervor for betting upon horse races, have not largely exceeded the amounts wagered in this country. The figures given by a Pans corre spondent show shat 10 per cent, levied on all sums staked in the Pari-Mutuel machines amounted for the last four months of last year to 2,026,859 francs, representing a total wagered of 101,842, 950 francs or over 4,050,000 in four months. This of course is altogether ir respective of the sums wagered at the clubs or with the large bookmakers, and represents only the small sums laid on the course with the smaller men of that class.

There will be many more fish in the gulf by and by. The Gulf Fishermen's Protect ive association will see to this. Through the influence of this association there have already been placed in the streams that lead into Bay St. Iouis 4,uuu,uuu oi young shad. These were planted by the United States fish commission. For a long time the commission refused to furnish the young fish. The reason for the refusal was that there were no party or partie respon sible for the protection of the fish. Then the Gulf Fishermen's Protective associa tion came into existence and agreed to shoulder the responsibility. Now there are 4,000,000 of young shad saving up, in Dick Swivellcr's language, lor epicure. The Fishermen's association was organ ized not a very long time ago under the laws of the state of Mississippi. It is a duly incorporated body. Many of the leading men of this city are stockholders in It. Mr. Louis Leonhard is the president and Mr. P. J. Mauffrey is the vice presi dent. The duties of secretary, treasurer and manager are vested in Mr. Alfred S. Cowand. Mr. Cowand probably knows more about fish than any other man in the south. A reporter bad a pleasant chat with him yesterday. In the course cl con versation Mr. Cowand said! who died at eighteen, was" considered doll child, incapable of laiproremuit.''

The Mayor Want to See Thee," A young man had been to sea, and on bis return was narrating to his uncle an adventure which he had met with on board ' ship. , "I was one night leaning over thetaff rail, looking down into the ocean," said the nephew, who was called William, '"when my gold watch fell from my chain and immediately sank out of sight. The ship was going ten knots an hour, but, nothing daunted, I sprang over the rail, down, down, and after a long search found the watch, came up, and chased the ship and climbed back to the deck without any one knowing I had been absent." "William," said his uncle, "I believe thee, but there's many a thousand that wonld not." "What!" exclaimed William.

J lktB flflU ifnH - t four inches long now. They were put in Wolf river and the other tributaries of Bay St. Louis. They cannot be touched until three years after birth of the spawn. I guess there will be trouble about them after they are two years old, as they will then be of pretty good size. Some of the fishermen wanted to do me up because I organized the Fishermen's association. They said that it was a shame to plant all those fish just for rich men to catch on a line. They were very much surprised when I explained to them that shad do not take the bait. The little fish have gone away up to the headwaters of the rivers now, so as to es cape the avidity of the larger fish. We will have to be very careful for some time with the shad until they begin to spawn on their own account. When they begin to do that it will be pretty hard to exterminate tbem, It has been computed that a shad has about a million eggs. Of course we don't save that many; probably not half or a third as many. But even if one fish can succeed in being the ancestor at one lay oi 15,000 or 20,000 of young ones, why, you see, she is doing pretty well. The fish commission are going to plant salmon trout and whiteflsh in the waters. They are game fish, very game fish. Those salmon trout have the largest mouths you ever saw. They are enormous. A green trout's doesn't approximate to it. Theii beads are orange color, and when you see them strike in the sunlight it looks just like a big bail of gold rolling over the wa ter. Whiteflsh are very popular in the northern lakes. In Minnesota and that country you can go almost anywhere and catch a good mess of wnitensn in no time. They are as white as a cuff, both as tc skin and meat, and are excellent for the table. By the way, speaking of green trout reminds me of the fact that one of the aims of the Gulf Fishermen's association will be to perpetuate these. They are not green trout, you know; they are nothing more nor less than black bass. But they are excellent fish for the sportsman a; well as for the cook. I can raise those fel lows like chickens. Give me a bayou, and before you know it I'll have it alive witb green trout. The Gulf Fishermen's asso elation will look after the culture of greet trout. New Orleans Times-Democrat.
