COLLEGES OF NOBLES. Assemblagres of ArlRtocratH of Varying In fluence In Continental Countries. The congress held at Berlin of the nobles of Germany for the discussion of questions which have arisen with re gard to the practice of dueling serves to call attention to the fact that conven tions and colleges of nobleB exist in every continental country of Europe ex cepting France, Italy and Switzerland, the latter, in spite of its being a repub lic, possessing a large number of ex tremely patrician families. In Austria and Russia the colleges ore regularly constituted bodies and repre sented as such in the legislatures, provincial as well as imperial, by dele-' gates, while each province has its so called marshal of the nobility, who is the president of the local college of nobles. Inasmuch as most of these are laud-owners ityis easy to appreciate their importance and till 30 years ago they constituted pretty much the only bodies in the empire that could in any way be described as parliamentary. In Russia there is likewise, for earh of the European provinces, an assembly of nobles presided over by a marshal, which constitutes practically the only legislative diet in the district. At any rate, it is the only representative body that possesses the^ right as such to ad dress the czar, and whatever sentiments Df independence exist in Russia are: to be found in these colleges of nobles. Thus one of the first petitions that the present czar received after his'ascen sion to the throne was an appeal from the colleges of nobles that he would un der no circumstances surrender even the slightest vestige/of bis autocratic power. These colleges constituted' for along time an insuperable obstacle to the liberation of the serfs by. i5mperor Alexander II. They have repeatedly petitioned the crown against the aboli tion of the knout, and a few months ago one of these colleges created a sensa tion by entreating tbe czar to make a distinction between the nobles of his own making and those who are indebt ed for' their rank to their inheritance —of course in favor of the latter. In Spain the sorcalled. college of no bility represents the interests not of the thousand and one parvenu dukes, marquises and counts, but merely those of the "Grandezza," a dignity which is possessed by not more than .300 aris tocrats of the bluest blood, many of them untitled. It was but the other day that^this college c&ine to the fore to protest ugainst tlje concession of the proud and ancient titles of duke of Monteleone and duke of TerranOva to a couple of individuals of questionable antecedents and of plebeian birth, who were publicly shown during the course' of an acrimonious debate In the cortcs to have secured their titles in return for the distribution of some of their vast wealth among the members of dishonest ring composed of certain high officials in the department of for eign affairs and in-the royal household. In Germany and in Scandinavia, as also in Holland,-Belgium and Portugal, the colleges of nobles are little better than mere clubs, which receive no par ticular recognition from the govern ment and which are merely banded to gether for the preservation and care of the interests of their order.—N.

Ulva, or sea lettuce, as it is commonly called, is a marine plant that springs up on stones and other things on the bottom, sometimes in the form of a ribbon, 'perhaps two or three inches in breadth and two or three feet or more in length, sometimes spreading out like a great fan-shaped leaf. Sea lettuce is used in ordinary, or circulat ing, aquarium tanks for its decorative effects. It is of a beautiful 'green in eolor, and it floats on the water or hangs in it in picturesque folds, and it makes also an agreeable retreat for fifdi.: It is used in^self-sustaining tanks, -which are thdjse no-cirGul&tion, trnt in which -aeniktfcm ip, pWtfOCCd .by. lfttrbductloh "of^ plafrt •Hfe. for the same purposes- as in the circulating, tanks, and also aa an aid to aeration.— K.

If there is any reason why you should use any sarsaparilla, there is every reason why you should use Ayer's. When you take sarsaparilla you take it to cure disease you want to be cured as quickly as possible and as cheaply as possible. That is why you should use Ayer's: it cures quickly and cheaply—and it cures to stay. Many people write us: "I would sooner have one bottle of Oyer's Sarsaparilla than three of any other kind." A druggist writes that one bottle of Ayer's will give piore benefit than six of any other kind." If one bottle of Ayer's wili do the work of three it must have the strength' of three at the cost of one. There's the point in a nutshell. It pays every way to use Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
