Eve heard a discussion lately as to who should keep the purse in the mar riage partnership. Now It would seem that In that kind of a firm there ought to be a fair division. It may be that both are adding to the exchequer, but whether one or both, they should freely share their united Income. Woman kind says that if statistics were taken !on tho subject, only about one man in a thousand would be found just enough to give his wife a separate purse. "If she is a proud woman, 3lie will suffer cruel deprivation rather than put her self in the position of a beggar for (alms." , Apropos of this. Eve hns heard a little story that belongs right in New Orleans. A young couple after tho iweddlng had settled down to board with the bride's parents. The girl had been provided with a very ample trous jseau, and her husband paid board and laundry bills very promptly, so that Iseveral months passed before her Imother noticed a very painful eni Ibarrassment about her daughter. Pin Imoney from papa having ceased, she never had a nickel for car fare or the iplate In church, for thread, or any thing, her mother supplying all this when they went out together. At last lone day the mother's purse ran short, iand she said: "Fannie, haven't you isome change?" "Not a cent," gulping Idown a sob. "Hasn't Ingram given you jany money at all? "Never!" "Well, jyou must ask him; he may be one of (those men who don't think of such (things having a wife is new to him. Say you need a little coin." Fannie had made an engagement to !go out with a friend next morning, and (the friend called just as breakfast was lover. This was her best chance, thought Fannie, so running back from the parlor door to where her husband was getting his hat, Fannie said, blush ing furiously; "Oh, Ingram, I shall need some money for car fare." "Cer italnly," putting his hand in his ve3t Ipocket," and you may need a glass of soda, too." He took ouf 15 cents and handed it to her, graciously.

General ltlanoo Ills Successor Twonty Thousand More Troops to lie Sent to Cuba Weylor Denies That lie In tonds to Join the Carllats. ' Madrid. Oct 0. The cabinet has decided upon the immediate recall of General Weyler from Cuba. A decree will be issued appointing Captain Gen eral Blanco v Arenas, marquis of Pena-Plata, governor general of the island. The queen regent, will sign the decree to-day. General Blanco will be accompanied by General Arderine as vice governor of Cuba, by General Gonzalo Painals, as chief of staff, and Generals Spando, Bernal and Cannalou. According to El Heraldo, 20.000 re inforcements will accompany General Blanco to Cuba. In the course of the cable message sent by Captain General Weyler to Premier Sagasta, placing his post in Cuba at the disposal of the govern ment, he said: "If tho functions with which they had intrusted mo had been merely those of governor general of Cuba, I should have hastened to resign; but the twofold character of my mission, and my duty as commander-in-chief in the face of tho enemy, prevent my tendering a resignation. "Nevertheless, although I can rely upon the absolute, unconditional sup port of tho Autonomist and Constitu tional parties, as well as upon public opinion, this would De insunicieni without the confidence of the govern ment This confidence would be necessary to enable me to put an end to the war which has already been virtually concluded from our lines at Juraco to Cape Antonio." Senor Sagasta replied: "I thauk you for your explanation and value your frankness. I wish to assure you that the government re cognizes your services and values them as they deserve; but it thinks a change of policy, in order to suc ceed, requires that the authorities should be at one with the ministry This has nothing to do with the con fidence felt in you by the government, for the Liberals have always said that the responsibility for a given policy does not fall upon those who carry it out, but upon the government inspir ing it I shall communicate your com; munication to the government short ly." Captain General Ramon Blanco y Arenas, who will succeed Captain Gen eral Valerano Weyler as governor gen eral of Cuba, has had his chief admin istrative experience in the Philippine Islands. He has been described as tho "softest hearted soldier of Spain," and his whole career indicates his dis position to employ mild rather than violent measures. Havana, Oct. 9. General Weyler gave to-day an emphatic and absolute denial to the reports that he would resist removal from his command in Cuba, and iu certain contingencies might espouse the Carlist cause. Ho said, according to the official account: "My principles and my military rec ord are firm guarantees that 1 will never oppose the constituted govern ment, whatever it may be. I never have put obstacles in the way of the government, and I never shall. So far as popular demonstrations go, I accept them only as expressions of approval of my military policy and as tokens of personal sympathy." FEVER BREAKS A RECORD.
