Tho Current,
Eliza Oakley had been in tho scrvico
of an excellent lady who was very kind
to her. She wan a smart irirl, hut not
conscientious, and with an idea that
impertinence was Holf-rcuprcf.
So she had, as she believed, asserted
her dignity by refusing to do something
not quite in her own department, but
which she was asked to do kindly, and
ill-feeling hail 'been tho consequonco
and she had given warning.
She could not hope to tind so kind
and considerate a mistress or so good
a home very speedily; but though all
that was required of her was a respect
ful apology, sho would not make it.
She packed her trunk, called the
man to help her carry it to tho waiting
wagon, perched herself upon it, and set
oil', and was left at tho station half an
hour before tho train arrived.
There was no one in tho waiting
room at lirst, but shortly there arrivod
a lady, who brought with her a largo
Saratoga trunk, a small ono, and a
These tilings were set in the usual
place, and checks given for them
three tied together on a little string.
These the lady dropped into hor reti
cule, and wrapping her blue veil about
her face fell to pacing tho platform.
When at last they entered tho train
it happened that sho sat right in front
of Kliza Oakley.
At lirst sho ant very quietly, hardly
seeming to breathe. Then she opened
her bag and took out her checks.
Eliza saw the numbers upon them
M), 61 and b'l. The cord tying them
together was knotted loosely.
She untied the knot and .slipped tho
numbered 51 from tho cord, :.ud put
ling the others in her bag again, began
to play with this.
Eliza l'Miucmbcrod that 61 was tho
number of the check that had been put
on tho Saratoga trunk. Snon it drop
ped into her lap and she left it there.
Presently Eliza heard a little tink
ling sound. The check had fallen from
the lady's lap to the lloor.
Eliza had never been dishonest, but
bhe was covcliius and envious. Uesides,
at that moment she had a had opinion
of ladies, as her employer, doubtless,
had of servants.
"Sho was not going to trouble her
self to tell tho lady sho had dropped
something." sho said to herself.
And the lady did not discover tho
fact for herself. At tho end of her
journey sho got out without picking it
up, and hurried directly to tho baggago
Eliza herself picked up the check
and followed her. Tho lady would cer
tainly be ready to o,ivo a reward for
finding such an important thing, sho
Hut the plan failed. Tho lady pre
sented her two checks and had her
Hmall trunk and portmanteau carried
to a waiting vehicle, and seemed to
have forgot all about her largo Sarato
ga trunk.
"Well." asked tho baggage master,
approaching Eliza.
"My trunk," said the girl.
Siio put her own check in his hand.
"Both of them?" said the man im
patiently. The temptation was offered. Eliza
gave him both checks, and ten min
utes later was bargaining with a cab
man, who wanted extra fare for "a
great trunk like that."
Her heart was beating wildly. What
treasures of lace, silk, velvet, jewelry,
even money, might bo in that fine
trunk, now her own, to all intents and
"And I never did anything at all,"
fcrgued Eliza to herself. "It was given
to mo like I didn't say a word."
All the same the step of an approach
ing policeman made her start, ami sho
was sick with terror before sho left tho
At the boarding house of Mrs. Mc
Gillup rooms were small and crowded
there were many young women out
ot place and five slept in one large
room, and three in a hall bedroom.
Trunks were stowed away, and there
was no opportunity for Eliza to examine
her rize.
These strangers mizht not be honest,
and if there were velvet robes, cash
mere shawls, diamonds, and other
splondid things under that lockod lid
it would bo bettor that they should not
know it. Besides, Eiiza had no key to
the trunk.
Sho resolved to open it at hor "first
place." The place came at last.
Eliza went to it at night bearing her
two trunks. It was a small, dainty es
tablishment, and the lady of the house
regarded the immense luggage which
accompanied her servant with amaze
ment. "How both your trunks are to be got
into your room, I'm sure 1 don't
know," sho said. "For the present
you had better leavo the larger one on
this lloor. There's a pantry at the end
of the hull that may hold it."
So the trunk was" put into the pantry.
At night, alter she had gone to bed,
sho heard the sound of an opening door
and of low voices, and creeping to the
head of tho stairs, peeped over, and
saw the lady of the house, her husband
and a man staring at her trunk.
White and trembling she crept back
to bed.
"I wonder they aro so curious about
my trunk," sho said, with chattering
teeth, to her companion, the cook.
"Oil." replied that worthy, "sho Is
always interfering. They think a girl
has no riirht to a few clothes and a box
to keep them in. Oh, the likes of them!
It's the size of it, mo dear."
"Oh, if it is only that." said Eliza to
herself, tossing to and fro in the bed.
"If they only don't know the trunk, or
suspect that it is stolen."
Eliza onlv fell nsleep when ilawn was
broaking and tho milkman was whoop
ing in the area.
As she waited at tho breakfast table
sho fancied that her employers looked
at her curiously; and after the meal
was over her master said gravely:
"Elizn. I must speak with vou. Shut
the door. I do not wish tho other ser
vants to hoar."
Eliza obeyed.
"Now make no scene," said the gen
tleman quietly, "but jrivo mo tho key
to vour larsro trunk the one in tho
pantry there."
Eliza tottered and supported herself
against tho sideboard.
"Key?" sho faltered. "If you please,
I havo no key to it.
"Is it locked?" said the gentleman.
"Yes, sir, I believe it is," sobbed
Where is tho keyP" repeated her
master. "Give it to mo or I shall open
tho trunk by force. '
I don't know where the key is.sir,"
said Eliza; "and.indeed," she said with
an attempt at spirit, Tvo stolen noth
ing from you, and you'vo no right to
open my trunk."
I he man whom fcliza had tirst seen
in the hall with hor master as sho peer
ed over tho stairs tho night before, hero
entered, throw back his coat, and re
voaled a policeman's uniform beneath;
then crossod tho room and opened tho
door, beckoning in a man who carriod
a locksmith's keys and tools.
"Open that trunk, he said.
"Oli, pleaso, please, Mr. Officer,"
cried Eliza, "I was only taking euro of
it for tho lady. I I meant to get her
address and send it to her."
That's a little late, my dear," said
tho ollicer as tho trunk How open. "I
arrest you on a charge of murder."
And Eliza, as she fell forward with a
shriek, saw that tho dreadful contents
of the Saratoga trunk was a dead body,
only half wrapped in what seemed like
a sheet.
In prison Eliza had time to resolvo
to be honest thereafter; and although it
was proved that the woman who pur
posely lost the check was the true mur-
cross, hli.n had to confess to then to
clear herself.
Her character was ruined, and but
for tho charity and forgiveness of tho
tmployer whom sho hail left so ill-na-
turedlv, good Mrs. Cooper, who has
given her a place again, she might still
bo without a place.
A Tension Oltiee Romance.
It frequently happens that tlio pen
sion oflico furnishes a romance which
ads more like the flight of tiction tliau
the stern realities of truth. Congress
man Cassidy.of Nevada, relates an inc
ident which occurred under his per
sonal observation only a short time ago
which shows this to a marked degree.
About two weeks ago ho received a let
ter from a man signing himself Eli
ohnson, of ono of tho small towns of
his state, saying that mouths ago ho
made an application for a pension, and
his papers were complete and without
Haw, and lie wished to nscertam
where the hitch was and how much
longer ho would havo to wait. Ho fur
thermore stated that he served during
tho-warm Company F, 1st California
avalry, and that tho records ol too
war department would snow sucn to no
tho fact. Mr. Cassidy went to Com
missioner Dudley and looked up tho
papers in the case, when, judge of his
surprise, no loiuiti tuai tne reeorus
showed that Johnson was killed m bat
tle, and that hiti widow had received
back pay, sometime previous to 1879,
of a sum amounting to over f '2,000.
She, however believed that Johnson
was dead, had married a Mr. Sill, and
was residing in Florida. Mr. Cassidy
communicated these facts to Mr. John
son, and tho latter answered and said
that he had heard that his w ife had died
while ho was away to the war. llocamo
ast and went down south and claimed
his wife, and the couple only a day or
two ago started for his homo in Nevada.
The only parly who is not satisfied witn
the denouement is Mr. Sill, who hnds
himself minus a wife. Washington Cor.

Swiss Prisons.
Our Geneva correspondent states that
an assault by a drunken prisoner on a
warden (magnitied by rumor into a
general revolt of tho inmates) of tho
trieburj house of correction lias open
the means of bringing to public notice
a state of things probably unparalleled
in any prison of Western Europe. The
prisoner, who was chained by the foot
to a heavy log, was shot down by the
director, and tho question naturally
arose why he was chained, and how,
being chained, ho managed to pet
dVunk. This question is answered by
a correspondent of Le Katiowil, a pa
per published at Freiburg. The direc
tor of the house of correction, it seems,
receives no fixed salary; his remunera
tion consists in a payment of sixpence
(60 centimes) a day for every prisoner
under detention, out of which ho under
takes to provide tho prisoner with food.
I5ut as providing food at the rate of
sixpence per head per day can noL bo
a very profitable business, he is allowed
certain privileges and perquisites. The
prisoners aro permitted to work; their
earnings, as well as any money they
may receive from outside, are at their
own disposal; they can spend what
they like in food, drink and tobacco at
a canteen kept by the director, and, as
the latter lics Ins own prices, he na
turally makes li.indsomo profits. There
is an order against selling more liquor
to a man than he can conveniently
take, but as this order is more honored
in the breech than the observance,
M'cnes of drunkenness Hint violence are
far from rare in the Freiburg house of
correction. Prisoners who can not or
will not work arc chained to a lr
ami compelled to live on as much less
than sixpence a day as it may pleaso
the director to allow them. Iho man
wi.o assaulted the warden nnd was
shot by the director had probably been
made drunk by his more fortunate
companions. It is hardly necessary to
say that the federal jrovcrnnicut aro in
no way responsible for this stnto of
things," the regulation of prisons and
the punisnmcnt ot prisoners being
among the most cherished preroga
tives of tho cantons. London limes.
Declaration of Independence.
Fresh correspondents, says a Wash
ington letter to tho Jlomn Jimlqcl, aro
indulging in the recital of the story
repeated every few years that the ink
is fading from the Declaration ot Inde
pendence. 1 ins sacred document is
deposited in the elegant library of tho
department of state in a wooden case
with glass doors. It is written on a
singlo skin of parchment in an elegant,
engros-iing hand which remains legible
The signatures, however, aro fast dis
appearing, and of tho autojrraph of
John Hancock only a few letters remain
visible. Hen Franklin's name can not
bo seen, and only eleven signatures out
of the fifty-three can bo read without a
magnifying glass. It is asserted that
under the action of sunlight tho ink is
fading out, and thero have been many
propositions for its restoration. Con
gress a few years since actually ap
pointed a commission to report whether
tho faded-out ink could not be restored.
The truth is, however, that the ink is
not faded, but stolen.
Years ago, when John Qitinoy Adams
was secretary of state, an ingenious
English engraver obtained permission
to take tho Declaration of Indepen
dence and engrave it on copper in fac
simile, lie carried it to tho printing
t.flieo of Peter Force: thero ho laid it
upon an imposing-stone and placed on
it a sheet of India tissue paper of the
same size, moistened with water in
which gum arabie had been dissolved
A heavy proof-roller, with a weight
hanjrins from each end, was then
strongly rolled over the tissue paper.
which was then removed, taking with
it at least one-half of tho ink used in
writing and signing the document. A
large plate of polished copper was then
covered with a solution ot clear white
wax, on which tho tissue-paper was
placed, with tho ink outward and sub
jected to the roller. The ink was, to a
considerable extent, forced through
tho paper into tho wax on the copper.
Tho grapher completing tho work, an
exact fac-simile was thus secured, but
at tho expense of our Magna Charter.
It is impossible to revise what has been
takon away, and 1 hardly think that
the most dexterous workman could re
store tho stolen ink.
Y uii iik (Quartz.
Tho Carson Appeal say: It is a
generally accepted theory that quartz,
sandstone, and slate are geological
formations wliich requiro thousands of
years to form. A few days ago, in
Virginia City, Couluctor Havenor
showed the editor of the Appeal a speci
men of quartz which never could have
xisted over hl.een years ago. Iho
inarlz mi question was taken out ot the
Yellow Jacket, mine from between tho
tinilM'rs. The timbers were put in fif
teen years ago, and the matter forming
the quartz had apparently oozed
through a crack and adhered to the
timber. It was about the size and
had tho appearanco of a cauliflower.
Thero was a mass soft and crumbling
to the touch, and in places, woven to
gether like threads; and in this maas,
and a part ot it, were three distinct
and perfectly formed quartz crystals.
Tho mass had been pushed through' tho
crack while in a plastic state, and
then formed in the bunch described.
Tho specimen in the possession of Mr.
Havenor shows where it adhered to tho
timucr. Ho also has a piece of sand-
stono taken from the creek at Stevens
mill, near Dayton. The mill was built
twelve years ago, and a portion of a
wooden stake driven into the graund at
tho time is solidly imbedded in tho
sandstone, which is as firm and hard as
any sands: one of the old Kandstone
period. 1 hero is a rusty nau in tne

"How many plants aro in the con
servatory?" asked a reporter of tho
White House gardener.
"Over H.000 in the conservatory prop
er, and i2,uoo in tne otner noi-nouses.
Tho number is largely increased every
year. Hants are here from nearly

CltincMe Flirtation.
That the Chinese aro not wanting in
n-alluntry or in the art of repartee was
clearly demonstrated by a young rami
darin. an attache to the Chinese em
bassy in Paris, in a conversation with
beautiful :ind elegant woman who had
him introduced to her one evening at a
fashionable reunion. Curious to know
whether it was worth any one's whilo
to attempt a little flirtation with this
son of tho Celestial empire, shu asked
him, among other things, what quail
ties Ins conntn men value, I mist in
women, "l-or domestic virtues, was
the reply- "Oh, indeed!" said the lady,
in a slightly contemptuous tone. "Then
vou don't like your ladies to o into
company and enjoy a little gossip?
"No. madam; a Chinese husband has
rirht to iret a divorce from his wife if
she is a great talker." The charming
Frenchwoman here thought sho detect
ed a covert allusion to herself, and sar
castically inuuirecl: "I suppose that
would have been mv fate in China?"
Tho Chinaman at oneo replied, bowing
low: "You. may lie sure that lroui th
day of your arrival in China tho law
that inflicts this mode of punishment
on the loquacity of women would bo

Where Hanging Is Not Proper.
Tho gallows has not been used in
Erie county, Pennsylvania, for fifty
years, public opinion having forbidden
it sdnce the hanmug of Henry Francis
co, then termed judicial murder. Tho
Philadelphia Times tells the story, as
follows: "On the 31st of March. 1832,
Henry Francisco and his child-wife,
Maud, only 16 years old and only three
weeks a wife, were found insensible in
bed, a bottle of poison by their side.
Two letters, ono iu tho hand of each,
informed tho friends that although
united in marriage but three weeks
they desired to enter eternity hand in
hand. Medical assistance was prompt
ly sought, bat in less than an hour after
discovery tho beautiful girl breathed
her last, and the efforts of the physi
cians were concentrated upon the pur
pose of saving tho man s life, tor
urs nis life hung in the balance, out
finally their exertions wero rewarded

was saved saved that it might a fow
months later bo takan on the gallows

A Giant President.
The other day I saw the most re
markable man, Louis E. Salomon, tho
President of the Black Republic. Ho
is a massive, broad-shouldered giant,
at least six feet six inches in hight.
with the physical proportions of a glad
iator, a profile dark as bhe "night's
plutonian shore," with snow-white
locks,, keen, restless eyes, glittering
like diamonds in a setting of jet, high,
intellectual forehead, and a form, de
spite his advanced age, erect as a pillar
of stone, with a dignified air. He was
accompanied by a numerous retinuo
of ebony aides-de-camp, resplendent in
military trappings of fanciful designs
and colors, decorated with numerous
medals won in imaginary battles, and
a profusion of gold laco and brass
trimmings that dazJe tho plebeian lookers-on-
A noticeable fact was that the
entiro group of warriors responded to
the title of General. There seems to
be no minor rank in tho forces of the
ropublic; Under the present regime a
private citizen cannot hold any lands
n his own right, and here is tho dulcet
harp upon which Salomon has played
with such euiuiu,r. lie has m unused
tho poorer classes a division of the pub
lic lands, tlie- establishment of free
sohooLf, national banks, ruilrofots, etc.,
all of which he is utterly powerless to
fill. Professing to affect extreme re
publican simplicity, yet his e7ery ac
tion smacks of royalty, his official docu
ments being promulgated from an an
tiquated structure yclept the "National
Palace," ani signed in kingly form,
"Salomon." His proclamations are
invariably written in the Frcuch lan
guage nnd remind any ono of the famous-manifesto
of Plon Plon ou tho
walls of Paris. Educated at one of tho
most famous colleges in Paris, Salo
mon is a pi-rson of no ordinary ability,
being a brilliant conversationalist and
linguist, and a crafty diplomat. Totally
inditlercnt to the welfare of his people,
he has by plausible misrepresentations
succeeded in becoming tho most popu
lar personage in his party. Still, in
view of the inevitable collapse which
ho is shrewd enough to foresee, lie has
"feathered his own nest" w-iln a prince
ly bank account in Kingston, Jamaica,
and pin chased several properties on
neignboring islands. Among tho many
banished persons ii is worthy of notice
that not one of them has a black face.
They are invariably mulattos or of
other shades popularly designated as
"off color." Salomon married a French
lady some two years ago whom ho had
met iu Paris, and tho nuptials were
performed here. This matrimonial
venture threatened at ono time to over
throw his popularity, tho natives ac
cusing him of attempting to givo the
country over to the whites,, for it is
useless to disguise tho fact that they
are extremely j saious of the Caucasian,
or any but their own color.. liiyli Cor.

Oscar Wilde in S;iu Francisco.
I confess it is late iu the day for a
story about Oscar Wilde, but I think
this is worth telling nevertheless:
Some time after nis arrival here Os
car said to a friend ono day "I re
ceived such a chawming present this
Tho friend naturally inquired what
it was.
"Upon my arrival here," Oscar pro
ceeded to explain, "I received a re
quest from a tradesman for tho honor
of measuring me for a pair of boots.
I grauted him permission and he de
parted. Thinking it probably only a
vulgah trick of the fellah's to obtain a
free sight of mo I supposed that was
tho last of it, but this mawning 1 ac
tually received from him a beatiful pair
of boots quite tho tit, too."
Then, alier a pause, quoth Oscar:
