DEMOCRATIC NORTHWEST. NAPOLEON- O., JULY 9, 1896.
. A reUM aUioVer. ' A eomapondent of the London Times hu discovered In tha French notional archives an original memorandum In which the famous sea rover, Paul Jones, told the story of one of the occurrences connected with hia raid on the British coast In 1778. Jonet wrote: Returning on board the Ranger, the wind being favorable, I sailed for the Scot tish coast, My Intention was to capture the Earl of Selkirk and detain him as a hostage. Accordingly the same day, April S3, 1773, about noon, having with me single boat, only two officers and a small guard, I landed on that nobleman'sestata. On landing X met some of the Inhab itants, who, taking me for an Englishman, told me that Lord Selkirk was then in London, but that my lady, his wife, and several lady friends were at home. This made me resolve to return immediately to my boat and go bock to the Ranger. This moderate conduct was not to the taste of my men, who were Inclined to pillage, burn and devastate all they could. Though this would have been making war after the fashion of the English, I did not think it fit to imitate them, especially on this oc casion, considering what was due to a lady, It was necessary, however, to find some compromise to satisfy the cupidity of my crew and to spare Lady Selkirk. I had only a moment for choice. What seemed to me best to reconcile everything was to or der the two officers to go to the mansion with my guard, which was to remain out -side under arms while they alone entered. They were then politely to ask for the fam ily plate, to stay only a few minutes, to take what was given them without de manding anything more and return im mediately afterward without proceeding to any search. I was strictly obeyed. The plate was given up. Lady Selkirk told the officers several times over that she was very sensi ble of the moderation shown by me. She even wished to come to the beach, a mllo from her mansion, to Invito me to dine with her, but the officers begged her not to take the trouble to do this. Gavarnl, Ternet and Meluonier. Although not counting among the seri ous artists of the day, since he was at best only a caricaturist, Gavarnl was frankly and exclusively modern, but none the less was ho a master of composition and a cer tain sort of conventional grace. He found beauty still-existing out of the range of the antique. The battle pictures of Horace Vernet be long as littlo to romanticism as the cari catures of Gavarnl. The genius of both was essentially restricted. Neither was UelsBonicr, although belonging to the some date, In any way associated with the ro mantic moment. Ho had nothing In com mon with Delacroix, Ary Scheffer, Louis Boulanger, Decamp or the Doverios. He be longed to the school of good sense and was scrupulous in detail and the verification of nature. It was a strange thing to say, Das true, that so successful an artist, whose works obtained almost fabulous prices, never displayed the whole extent of his capability. The public taste and require ments circumscribed his talent in a sort of magic circle from which he could not es- cada His "Smoker," his "Drinker," his "Header" found such general favor that he had to reproduce the original type, di versifying it as much as possible. It is a great art to Inspire interest with a single figure, and Meissonier could doubtless had he so willed have done more and even bet ter. At rare intervals he widened what was called his bonno petite existence in time, his calm Interiors, his old bullets, his china vases and took up a grand and satisfying subject Templo Bar. Ridicule the Test of Truth. It is said that ridicule is the test of truth. And there is a true senso In the saying. The Platonic irony which is really the feigning of ignorance In order to get a man to moke a fool of himself may illustrate this. And, to look at the matter from an other point of view, it may be seriously maintained that wo never really believe a thing until we are oblo to treat it sportive ly. The more profound our wisdom, the more lightly wo shall wear It It is a tra dition of the Catholic church in her col leges and seminaries that all ethical ques tions should be dealt with humorously. The professor of moral philosophy in those institutions ls"der lustlgo, as the Got- mans would say the man who does tho comic business. Carlyle, in one of his early letters, speaks of a sense of the ridiculous as "brotherly sympathy with the downward side. " It is a most pregnant saying. "Twenty-seven millions, mostly fools." Well, better to view them as fools than as knaves. For the emotion raised by folly is rather pity and ruth than anger. Then, again, the ludi crous, and especially the variety of it which we call satire, is an Inestimable Instrument .of moral police; I do not say of moral ref ormation. What moral reformation really the prefix cum, which Is the TTeUn cwm, valley.

Some of the above names, It win be ob served, have the Anglo-Saxon "ton" super added to them. .

Leol is merely a contraction or, Lugnvaiu- cm, the Roman name of Carlisle and the Latinized form of some unpronounceable appellation by which the Britons desig nated the site of that city. In Talkln we recognize the Celtic word talceo, a brow, and In Castle Carrock we may trace the Gaelic carragh (which means a large stone set on end) or the weisncareg, a rock. The river names of the county are for the most part of Celtlo origin. Thus the Irtb- ing, wandering over the alluvial plain, is believed to derive its name from the Welsh owryddu, to writhe or turn, and the Gelt, dashing over its bed of red sandstone, from the Celtlo unit a rock.

Gentleman s Magazine, An English View of Lord Dnffertn. The well graced actor leaves the stage. Lord Dufferln, by rights, ought to have re tired some time ago, but bis time was ex tended. Ho has been viceroy of Canada, viceroy of India, embassador at St Peters burg, and he has ended with Paris, the blue ribbon of the diplomatic turf. And yet it would be difficult to say to what moral or intellectual qualities he owes his extraordinary success. A great man he as suredly is not in any sense of the term. He is a very bad linguist, even for our diplo matic service, and it is'impossible to point to any treaty that he has negotiated or any difficulty that ho has settled In Kurope. Neither In Canada nor In India will his name be associated with any reform or leg islative achievement though no doubt it is true that In these days the initiative of embassadors and viceroys has been destroy ed by the telegraph. 'Perhaps Lord Duffer- ln's greatest merit is 'that he has an in stinctive eye for the line of least resistance, which ho has always followed with the ease and gayety of a well bred Irishman. He is not a wit but he says pleasant and point ed things at the right time to the right people. Ho will now retire. boturdayue- Emrllah Lodging Bonae Keepers, The lurge hotels are rapidly ruining the lodging houses in seaside and country re sorts. Great is the lamentation 01 tne landladies, yet thoy have brought the evil on themselves. Their rapacity ana on bridled Insolence have met with their own reward. No sensible person now prefers the comfortless antimacassar adorn ea rooms, the dirty slavey, the smoky fires, the ill oooked food and the long list of irritating extras, culminating in the charge for tho cruet so amusingly satirized in one or Mr. Kendal's plays, to tho fixed prices, the elootrio light and oivlL efficient waiters of the up to dato hostelry, where disputes over extras are Almost entirely obviated, and both short and long purses are agree ably catered for. The race of lodging house keepers Is a hated race, yet tho drift of modern progress seems nover to have Influenced them. Like George ILL they have learned noth Inn and forgotten nothing, uney suu pursue their unhallowed way, fleece, rob and Insult their helpless victims, wno, it nerchanoe, like worms, they turn ana re fuse to pay unwarrantable cnorgos, una themselves confronted with a county court summons. Tboir victims are usually. timid single ladies, or helpless old widows. who would sooner pay anything man ap pear in a court of law. So the law unwit tingly supports notorious practices and ex travagant claims. The kitohen fire, which burns mora coal In a week than a country mansion would in a month, the charge for washing and boot oleanlng and, worse, the mulcting for lights, and the amount of provisions consumed, make a lodging rather dearer than a first class hotel. If the large hotels have done nothing else, thoy have at least raised the standard of oomfort and dealt a fatal blow to the race of harpies which formerly preyed, unmo lested, on the oasual visitor ana the no- suspecting woman.

It Indifferent sleep crosswise, with the bead hanging over Into tha aisle. S. I have devoted some thought to the proper method of changing trains. The system which I have observed to be most popular with travelers or my own class is something as follows: Suppose that you have boon told on leaving New York that yon are to change at Kansas City. The evening before approaching Kansas City stop the conductor in the aisle of the oar you can do this beet by putting out your foot and tripping him ana say politely, "Do I change at Kansas City!" Ho says, Yes." Vary good. Don t believe mm. on going Into tho dining oar for sapper take a negro aside and put it to him as a per sonal matter between a white man aud a black whether be thinks you ought to ohange at Kansas City. Don't be satisfied with this. In the coarse or toe evening pass through the entire train from time to tlino and soy to people casually, "Oh, can you toll mo If I change at Kansas City?" Ask tho conductor about it a rew more times in the ovenlog. A repetition of the question will insure pleasant personal re lations with him. Before falling asleep watch for bis passage and ask him through the curtains of your berth, "Oh, by the way, did you soy I ohanged at Kansas Qtyf" If be refuses to stop, book him by the nook with your walking stiok and draw him gontiy to your bedside. In the morning when the train stops and a man colls, "Kansas City all change I" ap proach the oonduotor again and say, "Is this Kansas City?" Don't be discouraged at bis answer. Plok yourself up and go to the other end of the cor and say to the brakeman, "Do .you know, sir, if this Is Kansas City?" Don't be too easily con vinced. Remember that both brakeman and oonduotor may be in collusion to do oeive you. Look round therefore for tho name of the station on the signboard. Having found It, alight and ask the first man you see if this Is Kansas City, hie will answer: "Why, where In blank are your blank eyes? Cant you see it there, plain as blank?" When you hear language of this sort ask no more, xon are now In Missouri, and this is Kansas City. 8. 1 have observed that it is now the practice of the oonduotors to stick bits of paper in the hats of the passengers. They do this, I believe, to mars wnicn ones they like best The devloe is pretty and adds much to tho soenio appearance of the oar. But I notion, with pain, that the system Is fraught with much trouble for the conductors. The task or crusning two or throe passengers together In order to reach over them and stick a ticket Into the chinks of a silk skullcap, is embarrass ing for a oonduotor of refined feelings. It would be simpler If the conductor should carry a small hammer and a packet of sblngre nails and nail the paid np passen ger to the bock of the seat, or, better still, let the oonduotor carry a sinau pox oi paint and a brush and mark the passengers In such a way that be cannot easily mistake them. In the case of baldheaded passen gers the hats might be politely removed and rod crosses pointed on the oranlums. This will Indicate that thoy are bald. Through paasongers might be distinguish ed by a complete coat of point In the hands of a man of taste much might be off oo ted by a little grouping of painted passengers and the lolBure time of the con ductor agreeably occupied. 4. I haw observed, in traveling in the wost, that the Irregularity oi railroad ac cidents is a fruitful cause of complaint The frequent disappointment of the hold ers of auoldent policy tickets on western roads In leading to widespread protest Certainly the conditions of travel in the west are altering rapidly, and acoidents can no longer bo relied upon. This is deeply to be regretted, in so much as, apart from accidents, the tickets may be said to be nraotioally Valueless. I was brought in contact with one very sad case of a man whose mother-in-law had safely arrived in Denver from tho west almost on the same day that his five surviving sons arrived In Gaiety from St. Louis. The case was a peculiarly distressing one, since for some tlmo the unfortunate man had found his sole means of support in sending his boys op and down over this route.

"Please look at it again," she returned. Reluctantly be took it from the splndla and studied the signature. "Will It be all right?" she asked aoftly. He nedded.

Is this some faint and faroff commemoration of the fact that there was kissing every five minutes or -so In the reign of the virgin queen and before? Erasmus, in one of his epistles, says that he never saw such a peo ple for kissing, as the English. They kissed all around on the slightest provocation at meeting, at parting and apparently when anybody said a good thing.

Speeds vary from 87 knots In the Hornet, to 80 knots In the newest of these ships, though of course they oannot reach that speed except in smooth water.

Moreover, be woe receiving teller in a Dearborn street bank. In his position, whore he handled sums of money ranging in value from tens of thousands of dollars to as many cents, be had ample opportunity to bestow his personal favors upon whatever patrons of the bank were most deserving and to literally wipe less fortunate depos itors out of existence with one scornful look of his deep set eyes. It was only one tone harmonious with the rest of his na ture that prompted him to seize such a ohanoe by the forelock and work it to his complete satisfaction. Of all the lessor lights in the commer cial world that transacted business through the medium of the receiving teller's bank, there was one firm which he had singled out as a special mark for his aversion. It was a recently organized concern that had started out with a very modest capital, and the first time the woman who had been employed as maid of all work around the office went over to the banking house to make a deposit she carried throe checks amounting to 147.85. The receiving teller noted the smallness of the sum, and his brown eyes sunk a little farther back in ills bead, bis eyelids perceptibly tightened, and his red mustache bristled a little more than usual. When be returned the bank -book be threw it down before her with a little whack that gave her to understand, -without any pretense of quibbling, that he had given her a challenge of war to the end. The business of the new firm dragged miserably along In the very lowest stra tum, tod for months the ability to deposit more than 1100 made a rod letter day in their history. Week after week the receiv ing teller grew more suspicious of tha woman, who quailed visibly before the Tha Character of Bar MletreW OnaaU Did Not Pleaa Has. The wWs of a member of the cabinet brought with her to Washington last fnll an old fashioned colored mammy who is famous for her piety and her cooking, and the dinners she has prepared during the last two seasons have been the delight oi the cabinet olrale and the diplomatic oorps because thur have been so different from the conventional dinners furnished by fash ionable caterers and Frenoh chefs. There has been nothing like them In Washington since the war. But the other day Aunt Mellnda came to bar mistress with a very solemn air and decided that she was going back to Georgia, that she could not live in "dls byah wicked, God forsaken town no moh." A little questioning disolosed the cause of dissatisfaction. Mammy's heart was broken. "I'se tolled an I's 'spired In dat dark ole basement kitohen, ober dat good for nothin range, which ain't no plaoe tor decent cooking nohow, 'specially fer sech as has bed oook houses all ter thelrselves, an I'se got tho best dinners in de town, oa'se you'se told me so you'self, Miss Susie, 'sposin dot dose forren ministers what oomes hyar so often was gospel men. But las' week I find dey's nuthln but good for nothin, worthless, trltlln trash, dot ain't no preacher's talk, and ain't no better dan inflddols. Dey don't preach nowhere, an dey don't go to no church, an dey ain't got no religion, an some' er em oayn't speak the Christian language. Ionn'tcook for no suoh folks, Miss Susie, no, 1 can't I b'long to de Lo'd's people, an I can't." "But Linda," remonstrated the mis tress, "they are ladies and gentlemen and have done no wrong. If you mistook them for ministers of the gospel, It was not their fault They never pretended to be. They are members of the diplomatic oorps, representatives of foreign government who come to see the president, and they are called ministers for that reason. I don't want you to go away. I can't get along without you. Now go back to the kitchen and think it over." "I'se done thunk it ober, Miss Susie, and I'se rastledan I'se prayed, but nobody has no right to call nisself a minister on- less be preaches the gospel. Dey is wolves in the sheep's olotbin, an Jesus bod no nart with dem furriners and sech," "But Jesus wos a foreigner," responded the mistress. "Jesus did not live In this oountry. He lived in Turkey, and. the Turkish minister is one of those that come here." Aant Mellnda gazed at her mistress with astonishment "Is you shoah ob dat?" she exolaimed. " Yes; get your Bible and I'll read yon about it" So began mammy's lessons In ecclesias tical geography and history, which result ed in mollifying her sentiments, but she will never reoocer from her disappointment when she discovered that the foreign min isters at Washington were not gospel men. Washington Letter in Chicago Record. Thirteen Milea of Diaera. "At the coronation of Alexander II," says the Moscow correspondent of the Lon don Telegraph, "there were no less than 18 miles of tables, 672 in number, laid symmetrically along the Khodynsky Field, just outside of the city, and on the eve of the historic day they were covered with various kinds of eatables for the m ultitudo. Thus, on each table were plaoed five roast ed sheep, the horns gilt or silvered, and on each side of the improvised tables stood firs or pines, like the traditional Christ mas trees of the Germans, from which hung, not merely the usual apples, pears, sweetmeats and fancy breads, but likewise roasted duoks, chickens and hens galore. There were no plates, and the venerable old saying was acted upon that 'fingers were made before forks, and hands before knives.'

Between the tables, and at intervals along the 13 miles over which they extended, lofty arabesque covered fountains were erected, whose oapaoious reservoirs were filled to overflowing with Crimean wine and the curious drink called myod.

How the Meek Wanderer Should Conduct , Himself When on tha BaiL The following hints and observations have occurred to me during a recent trip across the oontinent They are written in no spirit of complaint against .existing railroad methods, but merely In the hope that thoy may prove useful to those who travel, like myself, in a spirit of meek, observant ignoranoe: 1. Sleeping in a Pullman oar presents some difficulties to the novice. Care should be taken to allay all sense of dan- cr. The frequent whistling of the engine daring the night Is apt to be a source of alarm. Find out, therefore, before trav eling the meaning of the various whistles. One means-"station," two "railroad cross ing," and so on. Five whistles, short and rapid, mean sudden danger. When you bear whistles In the night, sit up smartly In your bunk and count them. Should they reach five draw on your trousers over your pyjamas and leavo the train Instant ly. As a further precaution against aool- dqrrt sleep with the feet toward the en gine U yon prefer to have the feet crushed, or with the bead toward the engine if you think it bask to hasa tha head oruabad. the point where be doubted what llttl money she did have was gotten honestly. A check given by a firm in the oity naa to be certified before h would have aught to do with it; if it came from another town, it was considered worthless until hs had communicated with the issuing bank, and he gave orders to the paying teller to cash, no order she might present without consulting him. The woman's soul grew faint and sick from persecution and her dreams were haunted by a pair of deep set eyes, a bris tling red mustache and piles of spurious ohooks. One day a streak of good luck blew up bard against the new firm and the woman's step was light and her heart was exultant with victory when she marched up to the receiving teller's win dow. She had a obeok for 1500. Hs looked at it onoe oarelossly and said in that plero tng tone which was the insignia of hia dis pleasure, " xou must got that certified." The woman was strong in the knowledge that she was bolstered up by a $600 oheck, and she decided to take a firm stand. "That is good," she said resolutely. "It Is now 11 :80. It will toko an hour to get it certified. We have to moke $100 good here within a few minutes. Please credit us with that amount" The receiving teller's faoe flushed at bar defiance, and be watched ber as she start ed away. She stopped at the paying tell er's wlpdow.
