(including postagej 6 50 Payable Invariably in Advance Methods of a Famous Quartette. Whittier once said that Hawthorne, Emerson, Longfellow and himself had always been friends. There were no jealousies and each took pride in the suc cess of the others. They would exchange notes upon their productions, and if one saw a kindly notice of the other it was al ways cut out and 3ent to him. Hawthorne was by the othera regarded as the great est master of the English language. Whittier describes him as unlike any of the rest, for he never had any method. When ha felt like it he wrote, and neither had the health nor the patience to revise his work afterward. Emerson would not only revise his manuscript carefully, but frequently reworded the whole on the proof sheets. Longfellow, too, was a very careful writer. lie would lay his work by and then revise it. He would often consult with his. frisnds about his pro ductions before they were given to the world. "I was not so fortunate," says the Quaker poet. "I have lived mostly a secluded life, with little patience to draw upon and only a few friends for asso ciates. What writing I have done has been done for the love of it. I have ever been timid of wliat I have penned. It is really a marvel to me that I have gathered any literary reputation from my productions." Boston Advertiser. Lew Wallace on Turkey. "The characteristics of the genuine Turk, the descendant of the founders of Constantinople, are his habit of illustrat ing his conversation with parables, and interlarding it with axioms. He is sel dom a good merchant, artist or mechanic. He is, however, an excellent soldier, and the lovo of military life is the prevailiii feature of the younger Turks. Thir courage in battle is largely due to their belief that if they die while fighting they will be taken to the Moslem's heaven, where they will be waited upon by slaves tl trough all eternity. "We should not condemn the Koran. It is modeled on our Bible. You would do well to follow some of its precepts. I have, for instance, never seen a Turkish drunken man. Their love for children and their care of dumb animals is some thing remarkable. Another characteris tic is their respect for women. I once called upon a minister of state whose house was besieged by women calling for the arrears of pay due thv.r husbands by the government. The minister refused to use his guards to disperse them, say ing: 'My guards are for men, not women; The strike by proxy was finally ended by the men receiving their pay." Philadel phia Press. A Yonug ltroker's Experience. "I never asked any of the big New York operators for a point in the stock market but once," said a j-oung broker the other day. "If I know myself I'll never trust them as implicitly again. It was when I first entered the street, and I thought I would surprise the boys and make a reputation by a bold purchase. I ran over to New York, got a 'sure' tii from one of the best known operators in Wall street. The next day I began in vesting. The more I bought the lower the stock went. I had given the point to buy to a numlxr of friends and they followed my advice." Well, the upshot of it was that I lost some $15,000. and be tween my friends there was as much more dropped. It was a lesson to me which I shall not soon forget. I learned afterward that the New Yorker had been quietly selling the same stock which he had advised me to purchase for some time previous to giving me the point." New York Letter. A funeral in Corea. A Corean funeral is a sad affair. The female relatives, at least, do not accom pany the body to the grave, and the mourning is done at the house and at the grave (if at all) by hired professional mourners. If the dead man was very poor he is carried to lus grave on a bier of simplest construction, borne by two men, who often set their burden on the ground as they rest. The body is shielded from sight only by a semi-cylinder of paper, and it is placed in the grave with no coffin to hinder contact with the earth. The cost of burial in such a case is only about $2. Seoul Cor. New York Post. A Curious Flower. A curious flower is being cultivated by io,ir nf R-irton. Fla. It is called the ;wi in rmd is of the hlv species and has a fan shaped base, in front of which projects a purple cell, and in the cell is the pistil, on the apex of which is a per fect face with a white hood or veil, almost exactly like that worn by some of the orders of nuns.
