How the Price That France Had to Pay Germany Was Settled Upon. It was at Versailles, in that fateful February of 1S71, when Paris had' just capitulated and the spokesmen of victorious Germany and humbled France were haggling over the bar gain of a peace. It was already ap parent that finance was to play a prominent part in the settlement, and some of the ablest and stronges: financiers of Berlin and Frankfort had been brought westward to Ver sailles for counsel and assistance. At their head was Herr Schwab-l ach, the leading brain in the great Bleichroder combination, but even he shrank from the responsibility of managing alone so vast a transferral I of coined wealth as was contemplat ed, and urged that his father-in-law. Alexander Mendel, whom he regard ed as the astutest and most capable money manager in Europe, should be sent for from London. This was done, and old Mr. Mendel attended the conferences held between the parties to the negotiations. It was at one of these that Bis march, pressed bluntly to name the minimum war indemnity which the new German empire would consent to take, blurted out those tremendous words: "Cinq millards." There was dead silence for a mo ment. Then Jules Favre, springing to his feet, poured out a rhetorical and impassioned protest against this vast exaction. "Have you reflected," he asked the chancellor, in conclusion, "what such a sum of money-five thousand millions-really means? Why, sir, if a man, miraculously preserved against our common mortality, had been born on the very first day of our Christian era, and had over since gone on, night and day, putting franc pieces one by one on a pile, he would not even by this time have got such a mass together as you demand." Bismarck merely smiled and laid his big hand on the London financier's shoulder: "That i3 very interesting .bout the Christian era man, but my friend, Mi*. Iendel, is a Jew. He had been counting franc pieces 4,000 years be i fore your fellow began. So you see it is all right."-- New York Times. On a 311ssis:sippi nirvcr Packet. There was a fine barber shop and 'washroom" on the packet, and the barber and I often conversed, with a razor between us. He asked me once how I liked my hair trimmed, and I said I always left that to the barber. "Dat's c'rcct," said he. "You kin leave it to me safely, and you kin bet I'm more than apt to do it in do mcs' fashionablest manner." Thenhe turned and called to his assistant, a coal black boy who working his way to New Orleans: "Hey, dere, you niigger! Git me a high stool outen de pantry. How you 'spect I'zo gwine cut de gemmen's ha 'r ef I doan' hab no stool?" I mentioned the fact that theraust abouts were working very hard. "Dart dey is," said the barber. "We call 'em 'roo-ters' on de ribber, but rous'about is more correc'. Dey wuk night and day, an dey git mo' kicks dan dollari. Ef I got rejuced so's I had to do manual labor, I'd go tealin 'fo' I'd be a rooster. Certain su' 1 would, 'cause dey couldn't wuk a man no harder in de penitenshuary ef he got caught dan dey do on dese boats." -Julian Ralph in Harper's. Curious Animal Superstitions. The cougar, puma, or "mountain lion" - mo-keit-cha, in the Queres tongue-is to the Pueblo the head of animate creation. In this curious mythology each of the sixlike groups of divimties- "The Trues"-which dwell respectively at the six cardinal points, includes a group of deified dumb animals. They are Trues also, and are as carefully ranked as the higher spirits, or even more definitely. The beasts of prey, of course, stand highest, and of them and of all ani mals, the puma is ka-bey-de, com mander in chief. Under him there are minor officials-the buffalo is cap tain of the ruminants; the eagle, of birds; the crotalus, of reptiles. There are even several other animal gods of the hunt-the bear, the wolf, the coyote-but he is easily supreme. The hunter carries always a tiny stone image of this most potent patron, and invokes it with strange incantations at every turn of the chase.-Scribner's Magazine. Some Vegetable Malformations. Below ground there are more ab normities to be f-und than most per sons are aware of. The peculiar con ditions that attend the subterranean habit favor monstrous growths. Not long ago a cluster of sweet potatoes was brought to me. Some were all red upon the surface, others were all yellow, and some were one-half red and the other side yellow. The Irish potato is fertile in its freaks. Seem ingly not content with the under ground situation, potatoes sometimes appear upon the branches among the leaves. Occasionally a potato when planted whole will develop other new and small potatoes beneath the skin and out of sight, which only calls to mind how a hollow turnip may have its cavity filled with an aftergrowth of foliage, only to be discovered when the root is cut in two. -Professor B. D. Halsted in Popular Science Monthly. T te cold spell and blizzard was general all over the northwest. JOHN HOEY'S NERVE. How He Got the Better of a Sportsman Who Trespassed on His Property. I heard a good story yesterday about the late John Eoey. Hollywood, as every one knows. was the apple of his eye, his ambi tion being to make it the most unique place of its kind in America, if not in the world, and on Saturdays; he loved to roam over the property, in specting it thoroughly and seein; whether his instructions had beon carried out during the week. On such occasions he generally wore a suit of shabby old clothes and a disreputable looking hat, and wais al most always accompanied by a favor ite fox terrier. The consequence was that he was frequently mistaken for i one of his own workman, and a mis take of this kind led on one occasion to the following curious encounter: One morning he heard shooting in the woods at the rear of his resi dence, and, going to the spot, he found a sportsman shooting a quail. Pointing to a conspicuous sign. "'No shooting or trespassing allowed." DMr. Hoey asked the sportsman if he had seen it. "Yes," was the reply, "but old John won't know the difference." Mr. Hoey wore his Ehabby old suit of clothes, and, naturaihy enough, the sportsman never imagined that he was in the presence of the owner of Hollywccd. The latter did not undeceive him, but said carelessly. "That's a very fine gun you have." "Yes," was the reply, "it is one of the latest make. I ai'd '220 for it. You see it is hammerless." "Is that so?" said John HIoey inno cently. "Well, well, that's the first hammerless gun I ever saw." Thinking that he might like to ex amine the gun the sportsman handed it to him with the remark. "Look out; she's loaded." "So much the better," was John Hoey's quick reply as !:o steped back and pointed' the gun at the sportsman; "it will cost twenty-five dollars more to get it from the jus tice of the peace. So old John won't know the difference, eh? Now git." And in the twinkling of an eye the sportsman vanished. - Ncw York Herald. Scottlbh Longevity in Last Centunr. In spite of a low scale of comfoI i in Scotland during the last century health was fairly well maintained, and there wore many cases of ex traordinary longevity. Govan, in 1795, was a village of 224 families, and though water was allowed to stagnate on each side of the highroad that served as the only street, the people were health;y and lived long. At Forgan, in Fife, there lived a man over ninety on St. Fort, the estate of Colonel Lindsay. The colonel asked him how many lairds of St. Fort he had seen, when he roplied, "Six, and I hope to see the seventh." "What! do you wish a chango of lairds?" "Oh, no, but I suppose there would be no objection to the coming home of a young laird ?" The colonel had lately married. At Moiontluhitter. Aberdeen, a neighbor condoled with Mary Crookshank, ninety-nine, on the loss of a daughter, and observed that she herself would soon follow. "Aye, fat fey (doomed to die) token do 'ee see about ne'i"-Toronto Em pi'e. A Relic of the Cref:;e: Alaba ma. Arthur Sinclair, who was a lieu tenant in the Confcderate cruiser Alabama, has a valuable relic in con nection with the famous vessel. It is a photograph showing the middle section of the spar deck. The vessel is coaling, boats are sw:ung on their davits, hammock cloths ar' hauled over the nettings as a p:ro;tection from coal dust, and the battery is run in to allov, the coal barge to ride alongside in safety. This picture was taken at Cape Town, Cape of Good Hope, and includes pictures of Lieutenants Richard F. Armstrong and Arthur Sinclair. They are rep resented as leaning against a gun of the third division, while in the back ground is a Hottentot laundryman awaiting the wash clothes of the offi cers. This is one of the few memen tos of the cruiser in existence. -Bal timore Sunm Universal Use of Gas. The latest solution proposed for the London fog and smoke nuisance is the use of gas for all cooking, heating and laundry purposes. The author of the scheme would make its use compulsory. He estimates that it would cost only $120,000,000 to buy up the gas companies, and the cost of the new plant to enable th. whole of the 9,000,000 tons of coal now burned in London to be consumed as gas would be $55,000,000 more. Gas as a result would be cheapened, smoke would disappear, $20,000,000 would be saved outright each year, and London life would be lived in sunlight by day and the lovely glow of electricity by night. - Detroit Journal.

Granite for columns, balusrter, round posts and urns is now worked chiefly in lathes, which, for the hear iest woa'k, are made large enough to" handle blocks 25 feet long and 5 feet t in diameter. Instead cf being turned to the d c sired size 'y sharp cuttiing ine.ru ment3. as in ordinary macine1 for r turning we,] anml nmetal, gaanit. is : turuec or "rmud aw:-:y by the wedge like action of r ther thick steel disks rotated t y the pressure of the stone J as it slow-, taro s in the lathe. c The disks, which are six or eight inches in diameter, are set at quite an angle to the stone and move with an automatic carriage along the lathe bed. Large lathes have four disks, t two on each side, and a column may be reduced some two inches in diam eter the whole length of the stone by one lateral movement of the carriage along the bed. The first lathe for turnin7 granite cut only cylindrical or conical col-, r umns, but an improved form is so. made that templets or patterns may be inserted to guide the carriages, and columns having any desired swell may be as readily turned. For fine grinding and polishing the granite is transferred to another lathe, where the only machinery used is to produce a simple turning or revolution of the stone against iron blocks carrying the necessary grind ing or polishing materials. --Wa verly Magazine. RPefeatthcred the Tur_:ey. A curious incident occurred on one of Admiral FaTrragut's frigates when the fleet entered Mobile bay. It is related by an officer whose surprised eyes beheld the ornithological pe nomenon. The men were sitting down to a hearty breakfast---rorat turkey and other toothsone things- when they were "piped to qua:tcers." They had to leave the une:a'ved turkey and hurry upon deck. They were being fired upon. Suddenly, whnle they were return ing the enemy's fire, they wer', sur prised to notice that tie air was full of feathers. A cloud of them floated about the men at the guns. It looked as if a new and strange kind of smoke hovered over this par icular frigate. In a little while the tiling ceased and the men returned to to the break fast table. "Hadn't that bird been plucked?' some one inquired, poin'ic-g to the turkey. There lay the turkey as thickly covered with soft, white fe aathers as if they were his natnural pl.umage. Like many other startling pile nomena, this one had a very ,imrlel explanation, which appeared wh'.n one of the cabin doors was ofened. The room had the appearance cf hav ing been out in a li"ht. sno,; stonr. Little white feathers 1:y ov e v~ r thing.

The following extract from Pos well's "Life of Johnson" nm'ay s"'ve to fix the date of the present custo:a of walking on the right hand asido of the footway: "In the l:st age," say Johnrson, "when my mother lived in Lo :..!n. there were two sets of peol'e--those who gave the wall and those ;vh( took it-the peaceable a-nd the quar relsome. When I returne 1 to Li: h field, after having been in London, my mother asked me whetiher I was one of those who gave the wall o:" took it. Now it is fined that every man keeps to the right, or if cn'o is taking the w:dl another yields it, and it is never a dispute." SThe period to which this is ireferred is 1737.

In the summer months of 11(803 the first colony of workmen's dwellings, known as Alt-Westend, was built. It contained eight rows of houses two stories high, each row having sixteen dwellings of three or four rooms each, and so arranged that the four room dwellings could be divided into two room dwellings and so rented if necessary. The first stories have a clear height of over nine feet and the second of over eight. T e outer walls are of plastered stone work in the first story, surmounted by plas tered framework. and each dwelling has a cellar. The buildings are sim ple, and in the words of Alfred Krupp. were intended for poor fam ilies who must saveo but desire a healthful dwelling, and net for thos. to whom a few more dollars a yel.r made no difference, when it mear that they could live more comfort ably.-Berlin Letter.

UNAPPREC IATVE FRIEiSD & The Smoker of the Egyptian Variety a VIo -ina of Other 31an. The smol:cr of expensive Egyptian or Turkish cigarettes is a man much to be pitied. Not because he is a cigarette smoker-that is a horrible offense at best-hut because he is actually victimized and defraudedl and maligned and traduced as well. In the first place he is rarely if ever regarded as other than a corn mon leather lunged cigarette fiend. The rank and file take him to be a consumer of rehabilitated ciga~ butts, or if they detect the to him) delight ful odor of theo rich t;bacco, whVic varies from other tobaccos, they at once put him down as a victim of ca tarrh, and probably inquire if he smoking a "cubeb." Nothing in the world so galls aI smoker of Egyptian cigarettes as that accusation, unless it be the sneers of the men who smoke the twio-fo -~ cent dreadful variety of ciare.tte. The taste of the latter is so vitiated and their moral sense co L1unled that they scorn the Egyptian cigarette as a thing of evil or ask for one in an offhand manner, as though it were one of the kind they are in the habit of inhaling into their own lungs. These men can never be brought to a realization of the fact that the imported cigarette at four or five cents apiece bears the same relatic;n to their kind as a twenty-five cn', cigar does to "twofer"--two for five. Having extorted one from the victim they take a whiff or two, pucker and draw a wry face, and at the earliest convenient opportunity shy it into the nearest cuspidor, to the great dis gust of the aforesaid victim. Then there is another thiU . th't grates upon the sensitive feelin fs of the smoker of imported cigarertcs. It arises from the habit that utter strangers have of considoring the little paper rolls as common Ip'r:.perty. When a box of cigarettes is opened it its almost tantamount to a general invitation to all present to smoke, like the tapping of the lid of a snuff box was a hundred years ago. It is then the patron of foreign things wishes he had never been born, for likely as not some "rank outsidei' steps up, and reaching forth a greedy hand says, "Say, mister, give us a cigarette, please." Of course the only refuge for the highly cultivated individual is either to give up cigarette smoking entirely. carry two kinds to accommnodate ali tastes or prosecute his smoking of the Egyptian variety in the soelitude of his own chamber or the quietest and most obscure nook cf lis (:ub.
