If it were true, as is often asserted by some, that the rearing of children is the merest matter of accident and that our boys and our girls may go hack a century or two and pick up the vices of some ancestor, then it would be indeed better that the gen eation be wiped away. Fortunately we know that home training and early influ onces have vast weight in determining the future of all young persons It seems highly improbable that the child of virtuous intel ligent parentage, after being subjected to proper training, should turn out a murderer or a thief on reaching manhood. We do not look to underlying causes, Too indul. gent parentage or too strict discipline is equally perniciout It is impossible not to believe that our children are plastic clay, and that what we mold them they will be come. If a boy is allowed in early youth to consider that he has certain physical privileges which make him a sort of minia ture god, his mistaken parents must expect to reap the result of their fallacies A young man, employed by an influen tial firm, is found missing and his accounts in confusion. His friends, who liked him for his pleasant manners and general liber ality, are shocked when they find his ac counts all wrong and that he has betrayed the trust of his employers They shrink from thinking of him as a criminal, and yet they knew that his habits were not in keeping with his income Defalcation has long since ceased to be considered as an in tividual vice belonging to one set of men and as something that may not approach us 3r ours. It is more the outgrowth of false training and opportunity than one would estimate at first. You may occasionally, it is true, find a man incorruptible by nature, and to whom abstinence frbm crime of any degree is involuntary, but such instances are rare and it is true that only a correct life and the avoidance of vicious associates will keep a young person free from con tamination. Defalcation is oftener the re sult of a love of ease, a disposition to shake trouble, rather than a deliberately laid scheme to plunder. This certainly accounts for the number of young men who filch small amounts when they know that detec tion is perfectly certain. We live wrong. We give our children false ideas. If the girl who works for her living and toils with her hands could be im pressed that finger rings were only suitable when labor of this sort was not necessary; if she could be induced to believe that over. dress in her case was not only improper, but a stamp of her station, we should have fewer fallen women; they are recruited from this class.-Kansas City Journal . The Use of Tobacco in France. The first time that I can find mention made in French literature of tobacco-smok ing is in a letter of Mine de Maintenon, in which she says the dauphiness, after the excitement and fatigue of appearing in a gala dress to receive the plenipotentiaries sent by Queen Anne to negotiate terms of peace, snuffed and smoked tobacco, and found herself better for doing so. In Louis Philippe's reign snuff was out and smoking was not yet in. Not a single famous mem ber of the generation or Frenchmen to which M. Thiers belonged either snuffed or smoked. The famous chemist of the Gobe line factory, IM. Chevruel, who will be lit) years old next August, says that it always sictene t him to go into a room that smelled of tobacco, but he has also an aversion to wine,' and to fish, which he hardly ever ate in the course of his long life. '1 he general use and abuse of the cigar and cigarette were products of the empire. 'Ihe Emperor Napoieon III was as fond of tobacco as any Dutchman, but the number of cigarettes he daily smoked was perhaps not so much the cause of his rapid physi cal and mental decadence in the latter part of his reign as his deep indulgence in other pleasures He and hisB finance minister, M. Fould, were directly respousible for the spread of tobacco-smoking, even to the re motest village, by supplying a cheap, strong kind of tobacco to all the mdlitary canteens. The soldiers who leareed to smoke it when in the army continued to do so when they retired. Thl'e tobatto s ,pirlicd to the troops is cut in August, when the narcoti, ,uality is most developed, and no hing is done in the manufacture to "eakeu it. This is re tailed for a little mo'e than a half-penny an ounae--Paris Leter. Hanged a Hebrew by Mistake. On the Russian frontier it once hap pened that an officer was playing at cards with a friend, when a Jew was trying to smuggle himself into the Russian empire without a proper vise of his passport. The sentinel on guard arrested him and re ported to the officer. "All right," said he. Hours afterward the sentinel again askel whathe was to do with the Jew. The captain, furious at being interrupted, shouted, "Why d---- the Jew! Hang him !" The captain went on playing until the morning, when suddenly remembering the prisoner, he called the soldier and said, "Bring in the Jew!" YThe Jew?" said the amazed soldier; "but I hanged him, as you ordered." "Whatt!" said the captain, "you have committed murder!" He arrested him, and the judgment-death-went up to the emperor. Inquiring, before signing so serious a document, and learning how matters stood, the emperor decided that the soldier who, without rqeasoning, had implicitly obeyed so extraordinary an order of his superior, was to be made a corporal; that the officer who, while rm duty, for the sake of gambling had given the murderous order, was to be sent to Siberia, and that his pay was to go to the family of the poor Jewwh, had so iniquit ously been madlered.-New York Sun.

Cla rises filled his dreams and his waking thoughts, even when he ordered his hirelings to load his ancestral red wagons with con gealed mud, or while he charged thirty pounds of ice to a citizen to whom three pounds had been dispatched. And did she love him? Not so. Oh, the irony of fate! she cast him from her with haughty con tempt, and bade him take his riches elsewhere when he would go wooing. His heart was heavy, but his cheek was undaunted. He de termined to make one more effort to win the peerless daughter of the Peabodys, whom he feltwas the only woman on earth who could rule in his baronial flat with that grace and dignity which he considered es sential in a bride. One bright Sep- - tember morning he 8E SWEPT DOWN THE malnced his books, STAIR WITH THE AIR and sallied forth to OF A QUEEN. the villa of the Peabodys. He asked for Clarisse and was told that she would be down in a moment. His soul thrilled at the words. He waited patient ly for a quarter of an hour, which seemed weeks in its dreary length, and then Clarisse swept downthestair with the air of a queen. How his heart beat. The pretty phrases which he had in _ " " vented to appeal to -' , I *her for the last time '- " fled from his whirl ing brain. He was SHE WAS ROOTED TO THE dazed, distraught. SPOT. She entered the room with that proud, haughty air of hers. all unconscious of the identity of her visitor (for he had no card), and when she beheld Axminster Perkyns she was rooted to the spot. "You here?" she exclaimel. "Yes, Clarisse," he murmured; "it is I, your unhappy Axminster." "And why have you sought me here? Have I not told you again and again that my heart is another's; that I can never be yours?" His jaw dropped as he heard these cruel words, the death knell of his hopes and hap piness. But he was not the man to be dis comfited, and, nerving himself for the or deal, he sai !: "I know that you have refused my proffered hand seven times this week, yet I could not go to the base ball match this afternoon without seeing you once more and telling you how entirely devoted to you I have been for years, in the face of no encouragement what ever. Does not this devotion plead for me? May I ask the reason for your persistent re fusal of a hand which contains four aces in the matrimonial game. and which, despite its c'eanness, is an honest one?" "Yes, you may. You have a right to know. It is your business that I object to." His eyes were riveted upon her face as she uttered this ex traordinarv senti. ment. "My busi ness!" he gasped. "Why, the profes sion of ice dispens irg is one of the noblest, most ele vating and most profitable. The girl is mad," he added under his breath.

This was more than Clarisee could stand. She. too, was proud, though no patrician blood course;i through her veins She flared up, and, facing the unhappy Perkyns, she said in firm and reenltless tones: "You are purse proud and a plutocrat now, but think you that I have an eye only for the pre-ent! What of the future, of the long months of autumu, winte. and early spring!' Her manner was awe-inspiring in its terri ble intensity.

An English writer once entioned flowers as "the smiles of o"d." Jules Claretie, manager of the theatre FIrancals, speaks of them as "the poetry of Parik" If ther is. another city in the world where flowers and verdure are so loved as they are here, I do not know it In the salon of the fashioil ble lady, whose carriage door is coronet and who nu.ses poodles and pugs, instad, pretty. little i n&+jus 5u P l gre at . Denches stand In real S v.res vase., an and green plants and blooming flowers are growing in pots imported from Japan; up yonder by Montmartre, where the poor sew ing girl sleeps in the little attic under the eaves, there are 2 sons worth of violets in a broken tumbler, while by the window is a geranium, noW almost leafless and slowly dying, in an earthen pot that a poor man threw away. If the love of flowers is instinctive in hu manity, then it is certain that in this re spect, at least, the people of this town have human hearts which beat at fever heat The Parisian has a passioi for politics, a passion for pictures, a passion for betting, a passion for vice, but he has a passion for flowers, and that is a good deal in his favor. The flowering plants, bushes in pots, pansies and crocuses in thick bunches, giroflee, pinks, roses-all the flora of the smiling month of April-are to be found now in every corner of Paris, filling the air of the city with the perfumed breath of a long spring. WHERE THE FLOWERS GO. We have use for flowers over here every day of our money-spending lives. We send them to she lady who has honosed us with an invitation to dinner. We send them to the lady whom we teould be pleased to have invite us to dinner. We send them to the parson's wife, and see to it that our bankers' daughters are not neglected. We see that they are carried to this or that act ress,to this or that ballet dancer, to this or that grand dams who is of great assistance in making acquaintances in society. Life is, so to speak, begun and ended with the fragrant gifts They are placed in the Delta and on the brows of blushing brides, and bridesmaids carry them as they go about the church collecting money for the poor. Then, when the young mother or the baby dies, flowers are the offerings which we cast into the earth where she is laid away until the mystery is solves at last The trade in flowers amounts to.several millions annually, and their cultivation, transporta tion and sale give profitable employment to a great many persons. The wholesale busi-. ness is all done at the Halles Central or pub lic market house, yonder by the Church of St. Eustache. At mignight the wagons end carte from the environs of Paris begin toarrive They are unloaded by market men, each basket being placed in rows along the pavement. between the butchers' pavilion and that given over to vegetablesl These baskets are all pretty much alike and aeplaced side by side one after the other. Each flower mer chant must take his or her s`tand back of the baskets, never in front of them, and each dealer is compelled to out no with the place which happens to faillto him on that particular morning. At 3 o'clock the sales begin in the midst of an itdescribable din and a confusion which is msmetimes quelled only by calling the police. ; By 6:30 o'clock everything is sold. the custbmers are gone and the empty baskets area being reloaded in the carts and wagons (Many of these horticulturists are rich, and some own whole fields of flowers in the neighborhood of Vin cennes or Versailles There are rises and falls in the p1aces, and when the day threat ens to be rainy and dreary bouquets can be had for the asking almost.

The principle trasd in all potted plants and flowers is on the quays, or river banks, at the Madeline, and in the Place du Chateau d'Eau, or that of ht. Sulpice. THE FLORAL MA~RKET. Formerly the only place in Paris where flowers were sold at retail Was a sort of mar ket held on the Quai de Isa Ferraille, now Qtuai de la Megisserie. In i80 this market was moved across the river to the island known as the Cite, where it is still held on the Quai aux leurs. 'That part of the Cite now occupied by the prefecture of police, the Hotel Dien and the Qual aux Fleurs was in the thirteenth and :ourteenth centuries a network of short, narrow streets, some of which were still in esistence when I first camne to Paris. In those other days these nan ow treats were the abode of the arts to-racy, and shabby as was the outward ap Iearance of their mansious there were vast gardens pLanted with trees, shrubbery and flowers behind them. Roses grown there had a great reputation, anl the gardeners and servants had the p:-ivilege of selling them to the flower shops in the neighbor bood. I hi most famous of these was at the corner of the Rue des Trois Canettes, and was kept by a handsome girl named Isabelle.who was such a. coquette that quarrels on her ac count was of daily occurrence Letween the young nobleman and o.k erte of the guard. It is only within the last ten years that re tail flower markets have become quite num prous. For a longtime these were, besides the one on the ,u.i aux Fleors, only thei at tho Madeleine, in the Place du Chateau d'Ean, and on the square of St. Sulpice. These four markets yielded the city' a a revenue of $O0U a year, but in 187f the charge for stalls was doubled and then other markets were opened in various parts of Parlk The price of flowers-at all these markets varies a great deal, not only according to the sea mon and the temperature, but also according to the caprice of thevenders.-J.

The awakening should l:e natural, gradual and deliberate. A sad thing occurred last summer on an O.aha train. It was a very warm day and in the smoking car a fat man, with a ma genta fringe of whiskers over his Adam's apple, and a light ecru lambrequin of real camel's hair around the suburbs of his head. might have been discovered. He could have opened his mouth wider, perhaps, but not without injuring the main sprin; of his neck and turning his epiglottis out of order. He was asleep. He was not only slumbering, but he was putting the earnestness and passionate devo tion of his whole being into it. His shiny, oil cloth grip, with the rogush tip of a dis carded collar just peeping out at the side, was up in the iron wall pqket of the car. He al-o had, in the seat with him, a market basket, full of misfit lunch, and a two bushel bag contain:ng extra apparel On the floor he had a crock of butter, with a copy of The Punkville Palladium and Stock Grower's Guardian over the top. He slumbered on in a rambling sort of way, snoring all the time in monosyllables, except when he erroneously swallowed his tonsils, and then he would struggle a while and get black in the face, while the passen gers vainly honed that he had strangled. While he was thus slumbering, with all the eloquence and enthusiasm of a man in the full meridian of life, the train stopped with a lurch, and the brakeman touched his shoulder. "Here's your town," he said. "We only stop a minute. You'll .ave to bustle." The man, who had been far away, wrest ling with Morpheus, had removed his hat, coat and boots, and when he awoke his feet absolutely refused to go back into the same quarters. At first he looked around reproachfully at the people in tpe car. Then he reached up and got his oiE loth grip from the bracket. The bag was tied together with a string, and a" he took It down the string untied. s The string of the grip untied. Then we all discoverod that this man had been on the road for a long time, with no object, apparently, ex,.pt to evade laun dr.es. All kind; of ar.icle, fell out in the aisla I remember seeing a che t protector and a linen coat, a slab of seal brown ginger bread and a pair of stog i boots, a hairbrush ]nd a bologna sausage, a plug of tobacco and a porous plaster. He gathered up what he could in both arms, made two trips to the door and threw out all he could, tried again to put his num ber eleven feet into hi; number nine boots, gave it up, and socked himself out of the car as it began to move, while the brake man bombarded him through the window for two miles with personal property, gro series, drygoods, boots and shoes, gents' furnishing goods. hardware, notions, bric-a brac, re.l herrings, clothing, doughnu.s, Vinegar Bitters and facetious re.narks. Then he picked up the retired snorer's r ti: road check from the seat. an i I heard him say; "Why, dog on it. lutt wasl't his town. after all."-Bill Nye ini The Current.

The writer recently visited the museum with a gentleman who accompanied Abadiano in his journey to the ruins and as sisted in taking the casts. Many interesting facts were learned of the struggles of the young antiquarian to advance the study of the history of his native land and of thelife of its strange inhabitants when conquered by Cortes. The casts are splendid specimens of art, and bring out the characters en graved on the original, stone beautifully. Their value can hardly be over-estimated, for if anything more is ever to be learned of the Aztecs it will have to come through these seemingly voiceless monuments. The collection of manuscript words were nearly all of them destroyed by the zealous priests who accompanied .the Spanish invader, and thus the thread broken that bound that nation to the history of the world. Many of the monu ments were also destroyed, and some of the casts in the museum show the marks of axes handled by the hands of the 400 years ago. The monuments are the mouthpieces of the past, but their tongue is numbered with the dead languages and they can not talk. But it is possible that the key to the hieroglyphics on their faces may yet be dis covered and thus a new link added to the chain of history. There is already quite a respectable collection of Mexican antiquities in the museum, and it would be a grandf work to make casts of them all and gather them in one place so that men of science could study them, and in time come upon the real theory of their meaning This was the idea of Abadiano, but he did not receive the encouragement he merited. He spent his fortune and has never received any thing in return for it. REVOLUTIONIST AND ANTIQUARIAN. The career of Abadiano and the way in which he came to make the collection is an interesting one and is curiously identified with the history of Mexico under Diaz The dashing revolutionist and the young antiquarian were strangely enough inti mate friends, and Abadiano was an officer in Diaz' army when he was striving to wrest the government from Lerdo-the rightful president. They fought and slept and ate together and when they had suc ceeded and Diaz proclaimed ruler, the anti quarian retired from the army and returned to his home in the City of Mexico. Here his family had for over 200 years con ducted a large book store and he, in part nership with his brother, now took charge of it. But his antiquarian tastes and his service in the army had unfitted him for business and he soon withdrew from the firm. Diaz had promised him an appointment if the revolution succeeded and he now asked for it, but the office offered him was so much lower than he thought he had a right to expect that he would not accept it. He then suggested that he make the caste that have just been placed ao the National mu sum and Diaz agreed to get the govern ment to buy them to send to the New Or leans exposition. This was the very thing that suited the nature of young Abadiano and he put his whole soul into the work. -e determined to make the casts by the most approved method and make them a model of their kind. One can easily distinguish the difference between the work of Abadiano and that of Desire Charnay who made the much written of collection presented to the museum of Mr. Lorillard of New York. In the formse you will notice that every little crack and crevice, even the grain of the stone, i, brought out with the greatest distinctness. DETAILS OF THE GELATINE PROCESS. This was done by what is known as the gelatine process and it is very expensive, especially in a country like Mexico where the material is scarce and has to be bought in small quantities at the drug stores The stone of which a cast was to be taken had to be securely boxed, and the hot gela tmie poured into the vacant space betwee the box and the stone. You can imagine the difficulty of making a cast when you think of a stone weighing twenty-one tons imbedded in the walls of a church, perhaps sixty feet from the ground, as was the cal endar stona A scaffold had to be built, the huge stone nicely divided and the cast made piece by pieca The method used in making the Lorillard collection is a very simple one,and the most unlearned eye can see that it is very inferior to that of Abadiano. A piece of common brown paper was dampened, laid over the stone and hammered until an im pression of the earacters were made This was continued until the layer of paper was perhaps a quarter of an inch thick. Then it was left to dry and the cast made in plaster of parta Charnay made many fail urea and his- collectionr consist altogetber of flat urfaces, while t*at of Abadinao in chdes pecimens of every shap chides specimen. of every sapha. Abadlano's work was nearly completed whea a tide of ll fartunesuddenly overtook hin . After he had mud. two castsand de= stroyed his gelatine plates the Mexican gov. ernment aecided that the expense would be too great and declined buying it This was a trrible blow, but the young antiquarian decided to finish the work. This he did, and oarrying.out the original plane of the Mexican government he carried it overland to New Orleans at great expense, paying the customs offcer nearly $1,000 duty. On asrirng at tlR eposhtion he ddid not place his collection in the building, for that would bring him in no revenue, but rented a large storehouse in the IFrech quaiter, e of the most apirsely, settled distriec s of the city, and thlee set it gp S slow _did the careful antiquaria work that by the 'ineb'h *ss ireawy to exhibit the exparition was hearly o.ver and mmna` of the vihtors had left the city.
