KINO NORODOM'S COURf. A Carioos CoMtry la tka EmI mat IH Qaaaar Old Foteatai. Tba nlsht after my arrlral in Poora jwbn then wo rtoeption In state at the French rwldoncy. It waa known that the klrfg waa to ba present, and 11 of hi loyal ubjecte crouched In the shade opposite tho residency to wit new hit reception. A body of native militia, the MllllcioDt Cam bodiana, kept untidy guard in the itreet, and when the King drove op In a victoria. escorted by 11 Cambodian! on ponloa and followed by the rlctorlns of a selection of lila sods, there wna considerable enthail asm. Uka majesty waa received with" Pre- aent anna!" and the fanfare of a cornet that wai not In tune. Muslo waa played during the reouptlon by the royal band of Manilla, men who would have played, per haps, wttb more spirit bad their wage been leaf In sircars. King Norodom li quite a cariosity. lie li a little wizened up man, with gray balr and a stocp and with that peculiar expres slon of feature which la usually I write with that respect associated with the higher anthropoid apes. All tho royal fam ily lire In Pnom-pehn, in n kind of mock palace, a rambling pile of d's'ointod build ings of dlffHront shapes, sonttored over a largo lnclosuro, surrounded by a wall of brick and plaster. Wliero there Is p luster It is falling off In flakes, whore there Is wood it is worm eaten and rotten, where there Is any Iron It Is rusting and useless. It is a palace fit for such a king. At the main entrance to the palace two Cambo dian militiamen koep guard with their hnts awry, their khaki aoats in rags, their rifles held like, brooms. On tho river bank in front of tho palnoe there is an old flag staff, whilo drawn above tho water line there is a royal state barge, with dragon head and seven forked tall; but the paint has pooled off and the craft Is no longor seaworthy. King Norodom has reigned In his own peculiar way In Cambodia slnoe 1900, but since 1867 he has had the advantage of be ing directed and protected by the French. It was In 1807 that France entered into a treaty with Slam, by which she agreed that the two provinces of Angkor and Batambang should remain in Siamese pos session, and by the samo troaty Slam for mally rncognlzod the French protectorate in Cambodia. Since 1807, then, we are always told that Siamese Influence was withdrawn from theoouucllsot Cambodia. As an octuul foot, however, Slarooso Influ ence still counts for somothlng, though the French will not allow that It is so in the Cambodian court. Norodom passed his early years In Bangkok and spoke Siamose before be spoke Cambodian. It was Slam which gave tbe crown of Cambodia to his father, Ang-Duoug, and it was Slam which elected him king on tho death of his fatbor. Tbe king is not a prlnoe of high moral cbarnotor. He bas probably never attempted to escape from the trammels of his environment. Ho will oven on occa sions mock at Buddha, but, nono the less, ho oannot forgot that for him tho highest living object of religious veneration must be tho king of Slam. In Pnom-pehn there are nearly 40 Slnmeso employed by the king in positions of more or loss oonfldonoe, and I have It on authority which is boy on d cavil that tbe most intimate personal friends of the king and bis only confidants are Siamose, and that Siamese Is the lan guage whioh the royal Hps speak from choice. King Norodom is a Tory much married man, his establishment comprising at least 800 wives and concubine. Ho hus 66 sons and daughters, who are roobgnlzed by the French as his lawful progeny. Of this number more than half are eons, so that the succession, If ever the Fronch permit him to have a successor, is well asstirod. King Norodom came to tho throne In 1860, and the same year a statue in his honor was ereoted In Pnom-pehn. It is an eques trian statue and is the only publlo monu ment In the city. It was of oourse made In France and represents the king dressed as a Frenoh general, mounted on a charger and saluting tho armed hosts of Cambodia. Rarely have I seen a more lmprosslvo work of art, and It Is unfortunate that, left neglected In some waste land, It has be come overgrown with Jungle. On the pedestal there Is an inscription whioh tes tifies that the stotuo was orootod to Noro dom by his "grateful mandarins and sub jects." The statue, we are told, was the spontaneous offering of a grateful people, and one can well helluva it, though it surely has not often happened that In digenous tribes In Asia have ordered from Paris equestrian effigies of their newly crowned kings. London Times. An Arrow That Went Far. Some 800 years ago a young lady, wan dering in tbe pleasant meads that in those good old days separated ' 1 Merrle Islington" from the oity, within a stone's throw of the present preclnots of the Angel, had a rather narrow escape. An arrow shot at random passed through the crown of her headgear, and bonnets In those times wore worn very high, Regarding her good for tune as providontlal, she vowed that if ever moans fell into her hands she would build a school for the education of 80 chil dren as a thank offering. That young lady was twloe married, eaoh time to a brewer. She became Lady Owen, and, faithful to hor vow, Dame Alice Owen, as she was known, established ' 'Owen's Bchool, which still flourishes In Clerkenwell. Tho traBt she loft Is admin istered by the Worshipful Company of . Brewers. Dame Alloa Owen's charity now com prises two excellent institutions for boys and girls. The former la a largo building, accommodating 700 boys, with all the 'equipment for science and art tenoning, Inoludlng admirably furnished laborato ries for the elementary toaohing of chem istry and physics. London, Tolograph. A REMARKABLE HOLO UPJ " A Detective Tells a Story of a Hold XJp If ot In the Bill "This story about a gang out west scheming to bold up a train with Vander bllt, Dopew and other rich meat on it," remarked a detective to a Washington Star reporter, "romlnds me of one similar that occurred In my balllwlok when I was working In California." "As to bowf" questioned tho reporter. "A chap out there caruo to mo just as the fellow did in the case of this dotootlve end said ho was ono of a gang tbat was going to hold up a train with a lot of Frisco millionaires aboard, but that as I bod boon a friend to him when he needed it, which was true, or he would have then been wearing the stripes, he was going to give tbe snap away. It looked to mo to be tho ohance of my lifo, and I at once began operations to thwart tho robbors. I told the chap to go ahead and holp tho gang got ready for the train, and that when It was held up thoy would hear somothlng drop, and that he had bettor keep in a safe placo or It might be him along with the otbors. Tho train left Frisco one night at 0 o'olook, and I was Informed that the holdup was to take plaoo In a lonesome spot about an hour out of Frisco. I had a carload of armed mon ready. "As we struck tho dangerous place I was pretty nervous, and so was evory body else, but we meant business and brnoed up with o drink or two for whatever work we might have. It came at last with a light on the traok, where a man stood twinging a lantern, and the train pulled np. At It topped there was a volley of half a dozen thots poured Into the train from tbe woods near tbe traok, which my men responded to on the spot, much to my chagrin, for I had wanted the robbers to board, jm. where Children Cry for Pitcher's Caetorla. we eooior hri ttieni in toda snooting co il t ion. a; man war grow, toouah, or at least moat of them were, and they were to rattisd by tea ToJley tbat they forgot what they wera doing and banged away.

Some of Their Unions Walters From the Swiss Canton of Ticino. More numerous than tho United States army Is permitted by law to bo, the woit ors of New York city and its vicinity are moro than 86,000 strong. There are seven organizations of waiters, and, practically on the same lines of division, seven groups or subdivisions of Now York waiters. The Magnolia association consists of men em ployed In tho largo down town restau rants and has from 800 to 400 members. It Is the largest of the waiters' organizations and pecuniarily the most substantial. It inoludes a larger number of American born waiters than any other. The Gorman Waiters' union is made up chiefly of down town dinner waiters, who are also employ ed evenings at oonoort halls and balls. Thoy number 800 members. The Herbert association of colored waiters has about 100 members, who work in up town res taurants chiefly. For some reason which is not very clear oolorod waiters are much less in demand in Now York than in oth er American cities. In Philadelphia, Bos ton, Baltlnioro, Chicago, St. Louis and Cinolnnati oolored waiters are regarded as the most capable and trustworthy, but in Now York city, however, they scorn to bo loss In favor. The Liberty Waiters' alii' auce is an organization having at present a membership of 800, recruited from the ranks of, those who are employed in east side coffee houses, though the largor pro portion of ooffeo houso waiters are women. In addition to these there is still another organization known as the Gormania Walt ers' Protective association, mado up of down town dinner and ball waiters, with a membership of 200. Tho Gonova Society of Hotel Walters is an organization whioh numbers 850 and maintains its own clubhouse. Members of this society ore employod in np town ho tols. Nearly allot them are German or Swiss, and a majority of the latter are from the canton of Ticino or Tcssln. It is In the southern part of Switzerland, on tho Italian border, and, with an area of 1,000 squaro miles, bas a population of on ly 125,000. But the peculiar admixture of Italian, Fronch and German characteris tics Italian activity, Frenoh politeness and German steadfastness makes a com bination which is a particularly good one for waiters, it would seem, and a waiter from this part of Switzerland is accepted, tbo clvlllzod world over, as belonging to tho first class. The Delmonloo family csano originally from Ticino, and so did many other res taurant and hotel keepers and chefs. Wait ers from this part of Switzerland speak Frenoh with greater fluoncy than accura cy, and they are known very generally ta the largo hotels and big restaurants by the generlo name of Frenoh waiters, though In a majority of oases thoy hove never been in France and, In fact, know much less about It than about Italy or Germany. The system of organization which pre vails among the veritable French waiters In Now York Is not basod upon the Idea of the labor union, but it Is managed by cer tain recognized Baloon keepers, who act as brokers or employment agents for cooks, waiters and cooks' assistants. In the real of oach saloon they maintain an lntelll gonuo office, where there aro always to tx found, day or night, unemployed aooks oi waiters ready for service New York Sun. ine Woman Who Did. In Bow road, London, east, one Satur day evoulng, two men, the worse for drink, woro fighting llko demons. They were surrouudod by an oxoltod and yelling crowd, not ono of whom attempted to in terfere, and, us usual, there wore no police to bo seen. An old lady, carrying a cross handled markot basket, camo upon the scone, at whioh time the combatants were on the ground, kicking and punching eaoh other in a most savago mannor. The old lady paused only long enough to take In the sit uation. Then she wont to work and be labored tho two men about their heads and bodies with hor basket. This unoxpeoted and energetlo attaok so surprised the fighters that, suspending hostilities, thoy sat up and stared at their assailant In mute astonishmont. Then the ridioulousness of the thing seemed to strike them. Thoy burst into hearty laughter, and, getting up, took their coats and went away, apparently quite friendly, while the old lady retired tri umphantly amid the ohterg of the crowd. Loudon Answers.

In St. Nicholas John Bennett has a ttory of Ufa In Kngland centuries ago n titled "His Father's Price." Hereral lads bare thrown elod of clay at a proad bar on, who captures una of them. This seen follows: Tbe "fellow" tbey bad clodded was Sir Richard fceroope, the lawyer lord of Bolton Manor. The lad turned sick, bat did not flinch a hair. It la a strange English way. that, of taking one's dose and making no to do. Sir Richard's garb waa dull in tone, but rich In stuff. His cloak and hood were fringed with miniver, although the day was warm. Hit ray cloth surcoat was wine color and blue. The closely girdled gaber dine beneath It was of tine watobet blue. with a broad band of shimmering cloth of gold. His strong white hands were bare, bat his legs were covered with double thonged cockers of russet cordovan from ankle to mldthlgh. His spars were heavily gilded and he wore a short double edged fabemold dagger. . Art thou one of those who did this onto me?" he asked In a stern, hard voice. "Aye, "replied the boy huskily. "Who set yo on to do this thing?" "No one, sire." "No lies to mo, knavel Who set yeonf "I have na lied," the boy's voice quiv ered. "Why did ye do it, thent" The lad made no reply. He was won dering If the rost had got away safe; won dering that ho was still alive, and if It woro not all a dream tbat the lord baron was asking him why. "Dost hear me, knave?" said Sir Rich ard. "Yea, sire." "Then why dost thou not answer?" "For marvel that I may, aire," replied tbe boy. A queer look came Into Sir Richard's stern eyes at that, and he looked even moro shrewdly than before at tho upturned sunburned face, honestly fearful, yet un afraid. "Then why did ye do this cow ardly thing? Speak, knave! My time U shorter than my temper with thee I" At tbe word "oowardly" the lad flushed. "For sport, slro," he roplied. "For sport!" cried Sir Richard sternly. "This?" and ns ho spoke he pointed mean ingly to his swollen forchoad. That was your end of the game, sire, not ours," said the boy stoutly, and with a certain sense of humor. The dark eyes gleamed queeriy again. "Ye know not who I was, perchance?" "Not then, sire, but now right well, my lord baron." 'If thou hadst known me, thou woaldst sever have thrown?" "Aye, but I would, with a right good will," onswered the boy doggedly, "but I would not now for a gold rose noble!" As be spoko bo throw bock his head. "How now?" said the baron sharply. "Why not?" "Bocause yo bore yourself as aright lord baron should!" cried the boy, looking un frankly, though choking a little as he spoke. A grim smilo twitched at the corners of tbe baron's iron mouth on that blunt re ply, and a sparklo of satisfaction lighted his haughty eyes. Little used to such fair, plain spoech from either young or old, the boy's pluck struck his fancy. 'What is thy name?" he asked. "Walter, sire." "Doubtless, but whoso son art thon?" The boy looked up with a glance of sharp distrust and did not reply. Sir Richard's mouth set harshly again. "Answer me, thou froward rogue! What Is thy father's name?" The boy's lips whitened, but he did not speak. 'It were hotter for thee to answer me," warned the knight, gathering his bridle as he spoko. Tbe boy's heart sank and bis face grew pale. My father bas na clodded thee," he re plied huskily. "The fault is mine, not his." Sir Richard's eyes wero fall of queer looks that day, but nover moro than then. "Thou stubborn knavo!" quoth ho short ly. "Thy father fathered thee that is enough. Here, stand thou at my stirrup leather." Tho boy oboyed trembling. "Lay hold," said he. The boy laid hold upon the leather, "Now follow where I ride, upon thy life." And so tbey fared to Bolton castle. Fossil Sltnll of a Big Beaver. One of the rarest of fossil remains has been unearthed in Michigan near the In diana state lino and is now In the posses sion of Goorgo A. Baker of South Bend, Ind. It Is the skull of a mammoth beaver, a monster of the quaternary age, existing contemporaneously with the mastodon and megatherium. In only five other instances In the United States and In this country alono have any portion of the remains of a mammoth beaver been found, and these were always of the teeth or skull, but gen erally of only the teeth. The first dis covery was at Nashport, Licking county, O., by Professor Foster, whose find a skull Is described In American Rodcntl by Professor Allen and a cast of which was taken by Professor Agasslz, and the cast alone remains. The skull possessed by Mr. Baker Is 12 X Inches long, Is about 6 inches wide and stands about 6 Inches high. It has the teeth and also the great incisors used in tree cutting. The incisors are about 9 Inches long and IH Inches in diameter. It was found In a bog, and from compari son with other descriptions Is the largest and finest specimen now known to exist The llvo animal could not have weighed less than 400 pounds.

The dog has often been called man's best friend, and one knows how often hi' presence In the house Is worth more than any amount of moral maxims for children. A very suggestive little instance of this cropped np recently at Corydon on the hearing of a summons for keeping a dog without a license. The oSense was ad mitted, but tbe defendant's wife pleaded tbat she only kept the animal because the children were so fond of It. At that mo ment she bad a little girl ill, and she would not take her medicine unless ths bother pretended to give It to the dog first. No doubt the child's principles were, "Love me, love my dog," and if the nau seous mediolne was necessary for the good of the animal the doggie's little friend thought it must be good enough for her. No wonder the magistrate adjourned the case. Ihls story reveals such a valuable discovery In domestto medicine that we certainly think this dog ought to be al lowed to get liberty to hare no license.- Westminster Gazette.

If there is anything more dangerously industrious than a woman let loese in the spring with a pot of green paint, it Is the small boy who owns any apparatus for making his mark. Not long ago some misguided parents furnished an enterpris ing urchin with a stencil stamp and Ink pad which would print tbe family namo. No special warnings on the subject were considered necessary, but one fatal day the mother of the lad made a startling discov ery in her handkerchief box. Every hand kerchief she owned had a huge purple signboard stamped conspicuously on one of Its corners, the work, of course, of the small boy and the stencil. She had not the heart to bestow too severe a reprimand on the infant artist, so now at intervals, when she flourishes a dainty embroidered moucholr with a great luky stain on its borders, she has to submit to this harassing exclamation : "Wasn't that nice in me, mamma, to print your name so big on all your band kerchiefs!" Louisville Courier-Journal. MRS. MAGGIE MYERS. Williamsport, Ind., writes: "I suf fered for months of severe stomach troubles, caused by indigestion and constipation.

The accounts of the Monte Carlo CasUio company for the year ending March 31 have just been made public and show that the receipts have fallen off considerably more than 1,000,000 francs. This decrease is attributed to the extraordinary luck whioh attendod two or three plungers who wont to Monte Carlo in the early part of the season and won large sums. Their aggregate winnings indeed represent al most exactly the amount of the decrease, and for once there Is no truth in the axiom of old Pere Blime, the founder, "Rouge perd et nolr perd, mals e'est toujours Blanc put gagna " ("Red loses and black loses, but it Is always Blano white that wins.") The one player who "broke the bank," instead of "breaking" himself, was Dr. Grosdanovltch, a Russian army surgeon, who arrived in the early part of last au tumn. He had a good sized sum of money to begin with and started in by staking the maximum on every turn of the wheel. Luck was with him from the start Croupier after croupier changed places at the Russian's table, but still his pile of banknotes and gold grew. At last, amid such a scene as even that great gaming hell itself sees but once in a decade, came the announcement of the breaking of the bank. Grosdanovltch bad sat with un moved face, a half burned cigarette be tween his lips, during the brief naif hour that sufficed him to win this fortune. When he arose from the table, stuffing the notes and gold into every pocket of his clothes, attendants surrounded and con ducted him to another room, whence he might make his way by a secret passage out of the building, for thieves of every sort swarm at Monte Carlo's Casino. At this point the Russian's nerves gave way, and he burst into a fit of hysterics. Two other large winners were Frank Gardner of London, who took away $85,000, and a Mr. Louis, who pocketed $60,000. Gros danoivtch sent hi money to Russia and is said to 'have invested it there In a largv estate. St. Louis Post-Dlssatcb. A DINNER FOR A DIMS. " ptoaaaaaBaa TiaauUm Bnfi A boa Its Caaaa, Claaa Kattng Hoaaaa. What 1 tha limit of tha cheap eating bouse? It has been dropping la price for yean, and emi to be still going down. San Franciscans may not realize It, but they are living in tha cheapest fed city of tha United States and one that oannot be beaten Tory much even by tha world famed cheap cafes of the Parisian Latin quarter. Of course if one want to live high in fan Francisco he can do to. There is nothing but his financial standing to pre vent his eating canvas backs, washed down with tha best quality of Sec, or blowing himself for English pheasants at IS per pair, or genuine dlamondbacks at $100 per dozen. But to come down by degrees and not make the contrast too sudden, he can get as good a meal with as good service as a man could want for $1, or he can dine sumptuously, with wine, for 50 cents. He can get a full meal for a quarter, a fair meal for 15 cent and a clean, savory and tolerably filling feed for a dime, or even an apology for a dinner In not very elegant surroundings for a nickel. The 10 oent restaurant made its appear ance about four years ago. Prior to that the cheapest sort of a meal cost 15 cents. But the first dime Joint did such a busi ness that nearly all of the then 15 cent houses had to cither come down to a dime or make considerable additions to their bill of fare. But when some of the lowest of the beer and wine joints about a year ago began to advertise two schooners for a nickel or two glasses of native wine, with some sort of a free lunch on the side, it forced another drop in meal prices, and tbe o cent hashhouse bloomed forth to a paying business. Competition has been sharp, however. and now nearly all the 5 cent joints give their customers the option of "wine, beer or coffee with the meal," which latter is of slender proportions. Still the hard pushed or economically minded may tret In addition to their wine4 or other beverage "two rolls and a sinker," which last Is technical for a codfish ball, or "bread, three snakes and coffee," as one of the lunchroom signs reads. Tho "snakes" is no tribute to the power of the chemical wino sold, but is only vernacular for frankfurters. If ono does not care for "snakes" or"slnkors," he may fill out his bread and coffee with a fair sized plate of hash, mysteriously compounded, stew of even more doubtful origin or doughnuts, pie or cakes. The lower ends of Pino, Clay and Sacra mento streets are where tho 5 cent joints most do congregate, and about them all day hangs a crowd of the city's great un washed, some regular rounders, but most of them merely the unfortunate out of work and down at the heel variety who in the Intervals of "rustllngonlck" on which to reed stay closo by the source of supply for the company of the fellow sufferers they are sure to find there. One of the effects of the 5 cent reduction has been practically to closo the kitchen at the men's shelter of the Salvation Army at 1SU Oregon street. Two years ago this was the only place In the city where a 5 cent meal could be had. Scores of men were fed there every day in winter and almost as many in summer, and there is yet a big kitchen plant that has cooked a Christmas dinner for 8,500 peopla But the meals served there were much better than those of the 5 cent joints outside, and, In spite of considerable donations of material, cost the Army more than a nickel each. So, when the outside restaurants came down to u cents, the Array, which makes a practice of never entering trade competition, gradual ly closed down on Its meal system, so that now only a few ore served each day. Xo revert to the 10 cent houses, which are the minimum of even comparative comfort, cleanliness and satisfaction, some of them go so far as to give half a bottle oi wine with a 10 cent dinner. They say that, such as it Is, It is cheap as milk or coffee and attracts a certain amount of trade. The menu of the dime houses consists of bread and butter, potatoes, coffee and one sort M meat either liver and onions, steak, chops or hash. To this are added oatmeal and milk for breakfast and soup for dinner. that being the chief and only distinctive feature between the two meals. There are perhaps a dozen 10 cent houses in the lower end of town, two on Second street, three on Kearny, and the cross streets east of Market are all well supplied. These little cafes cater to an Immense num ber of shopgirls, small clerks, mechanics and laborers, who find it cheaper to live In that way than to attempt light housekeep ing. The number of patrons Is necessarily large, for the margin of profit on a 10 cent meal Is microscopic, and it takes quick sales and lots of them in a day to keep the business going. But it goes, and the fact remains that San Francisco is a cheap place to live. San Francisco Letter in Washing ton Post A Musical Coffin. In a hotel situated in one of the unfash ionable quarters of Paris a poor Tzigane had occupied a room for some weeks with out showing any undue desire to pay hit bill. Yesterday the manservant acquaint ed the landlord with the fact that his needy tenant had disappeared. The proprietor naturally supposed that, as the musician could not settle up, he hod bolted. Boniface, however, consoled himself with the reflection that, though the lodger had left no money behind him, he bad not carried off his musical instru ment, a good double bass. Sent up stairs to remove it, the waiter put forth all his strength, but failed tc move the instrument, while up from its depths came forth a series of sighs, grunts and nioans. The manservant, firmly be lieving that he had to do with an enchant ed double bass, fled from the room in dis may with a report to his master of what bad happened. That individual went up to the room to Investigate. He gave the bass viol a shake, when a hollow voice issued from Its interior, plead ing in trembling accents to be left alone to die. In an Instant the hotel keeper had whipped off tho back of the case, and, tightly squeezed inside, he found its own er, the Tzigane. It was a mystery to those present how the poor man ever contrived to insert his body, thin as It was, into the Instrument, for considerable energy had to be called into play to get him out. London Telegraph. Electric Lights Taken From a Church. The authorities of the Church of Notre Dame have recently discarded cloctricity as a lighting system for the vast edifice. The change was brought on by a decision of the insurance companies, who were unwilling to continue the risk which they claimed to exist with the electric system as It stood. The electric lights around the grand altar, which are used for the Illumination on solemn occasions, have been retained, but the electric power will no longor be gener ated on the promises, and the light will be furnished by a connection with the wires of the Royal Klectrlo company. This will do away with a complicated system of wires, and the motors that had been placed in the. basement of the church have been sold. Montreal Witness. Dr. Hand's Colic Cure. 8prasoriELD.
