The Portuguese treaty which has been concluded with China contains a special article recognizing the right of the Portu guese to dominion and possession of Ma cao.

Take my advice and go there; it will pay you if you do. There is such a boom in the Argentine Republic that Buenos Ayres has become the dearest citr in the world to live in. The city is growing so fast that the brick layers can hardly build houses fast enough. Rents are up to the skies, provisions of ever' description are almost as high as in Europe, and general living expenses have rapidly increased. Captain Clarke of the steamer Lehua stated that during the past stormy week a stone wall near Nuu, Maui, which was constructed by natives of the past century on the banks of a stream, was completely washed away by a freshet, and now noth ing remains to mark the spot. An old na tive man, who has been a resident there for nearly sixty years, declared that he had never seen such weather before.

S. Sachs. Dronrietor. Cremation is extending in Europe. The new crematory at Stockholm, Sweden, burned its first body October 15th. From that day to December 6th nineteen corpses were incinerated. A crematory is in course of erection at Zurich, Switzerland. An other is to be built at Basel on the same plan. At Hamburg, Germany, the erec tion of a cremator' will commence next spring. The cremation society at Berlin has secured the ground for a crematory. The Electric Club has just opened a club house on East Twenty-second street, New York. The house is lighted by electricity, the cooking is accomplished by an electric range, the boots of the club members are polished by electricity, and the fluid is also used for clocks, to play an electric piano and work the locks of an electric safe. The chief wonder is Edison's per fected phonograph, into which every visi tor is expected to speak to make a per manent record of his visit. The club num bers nearly 350 members. To become a member it is necessary that one must be either engaged in the manufacture of electrical machinery or m its commercial use, or the service of the electric power. Will Be a Year or War? The present year is the fifth year of modern times in which the aggregate of the figures is twenty-five, and there will be but nine more years in which such a combination is possible prior to the year 2599. Probably but few have ever heard of the old prophecy, which runs as fol lows : In every future year of our Lord, When the sum of the figures is twenty-five, Some warlike kingdom will draw the sword, But peaceful nations in peace shall thrive. Students of modern history will read ily recall how faithfully this prophecy has been fulfilled in the four previous years to which it applied. In 1G99 Russia, Denmark and Poland formed the coalition against Sweden which inaugurated the great war that ended in the disastrous defeat of Charles XII. at Pultown. The year 17S9 will ever be memorable on account of the breaking out of the French Revolution. The year 1798 witnessed the campaign of Bonaparte in Egypt and the forma tion of the second European coalition against France. In 1879 war broke out between Eng land and Afghanistan, followed by the invasion of the latter country by British troops. In what manner the prediction is to be verified in 188S remains yet to be seen, but the present condition of Europe seems to promise an abundant fulfilment of the prophecy. Philadelphia Inquirer. SPOKEN AFTER SORROW. I know of something sweeter than the chime , Of fairy -bells that run Down mellow winds. O! fairer than the time You sing about in happy, broken rhyme, Of butterflies and sun. But O! as many fabled leagues away As the to-morrow when the east breaks gray Is this which lies somewhere most still and far, . Between the sunset and the dawn's last star, And known as yest2rday. I know of something better, dearer, too, Than the fi;st rose you hoid; All sweet with Juue and dainty with the aew, The summer's perfect promise breathing through Its whit3 leaves'tender fold. Oh! better when tha late winds, gathering slow Behind the night and moaning sad and low Across the world, shall make its music dumb, Oh! dearer than this earliest rose to come Will be the last to go. I know of something sndder than this nest Of broken eggs you bring, With snch sweet trouble stirring at your breast, For love undone the mother bird's unrest That yesterday could sing. My iittle child, too grieved to want my kiss, Do I forget the sweetness they will miss Who built thj home! My heart with yours makes moan, But O? that nest, from which the birds have flown Is sadder far than this. Juliet C. Marsh. THE LAST MAN BROTHERHOOD. A Feast Where Many Were Prepared for While but Few Caine Curious History. Six men upon whose face3 the hand of time has carved those lines that indicate the meridian of life has passed, walked into a dining-room up town the other evening and sat down to a table that looked like that of the feast in the parable where many were bidden but few cams. It was set with plates and chairs for thirty-three persons. The eldest of th3 six strode quickly to the head of the board and sat down, while the others found seats near him. No one looked at the twenty-seven empty chairs and, as the meal was immediately served, it seemed as though the absentee guests were not expected. The dinner was a curiously quiet one, and but little was said as it progressed. A "gentle melancholy seemed to pervade the six, and if perchance a laugh was raised it was quickly hu-hed, and a hurried, apologetic look cast at the vacant chairs. When the meal was enaed, and the coITee and cigars came on, the chairman of the feast placed upon the table a bottle whose many layers of cobwebs told of long years in a musty bin. The history of this bottle is, indeed, a curious one and well worth the telling. Thirty years ago, when it was new and fresh and its label bright and clean, it occu pied the same position 0:1 the table at which, like the one on Saturday night, there were thirty-three chairs, but tiiis tima each chair was filled with a merry faiter, and song and story and merry jjsfc kept the table in a roar. The thirty-three were all men in the prime of life and the dinner was the first banquet of a society they had just organized. They were all compositors on morning papers in Philadelphia, and, inspired by a popular drama of that day, they had resolved to meet together on tha third Saturday of Feb ruary in each recurring year. No additions were ever to be received to ttuir number, and when death took away a member his chair and plate were to be sot for him as on tbe first night, except that the survivors moved up a little nearer the chairman. The bottle was also to make its appearance at each of the succeeding feasts until the day came when but one man was left of the original number. Then he was to uncork the flask, and in memory of his departed comrades drink its contents. Then the Last Man Brotherhood, as it was called, was to be at an end. Of the thirty-three, death has taken away twenty, and seven could not attend because of various reasons. Last year made unusual inroads on the member ship. Philadelphia Call. New Concrete Walls Kuilt in Paris. A kind of concrete, hard and solid, is now being used for building purposes in Paris. It is composed of eight parts of sand, gravel and pebbles; one part of common earth, burnt and powdered; one part of powdered cinders, and one and a half parts unslacked hydraulic lime. These materials are thor oughly beaten up together, their mixture giving a concrete which sets almost immedi ately and becomes in a few days extremely hard and solid, which property may be still further increased by the addition of a small quantity, say one part, of cement. Among other constructions to which this material has te3n applied is a house three stories in height, 05x45 feet, standing on a terrace, having a perpendicular retaining wall 200 feet in length and 20 feet high. Every part of this structure was made of the hard concreta, including foundations, vaults of cellars, retaining wall, and all walls, exterior and interior, as well as the cornice-work, mouldings, string courses, balustrades, parapets, and the building is I without Dana-iron, lintels, or wood tnrougn out. Chicago JournaL London's Improved Postal Service. One of the last official acts of Lord J ohn Manners as postmaster general has been to sanction the introduction of an improve ment in the postal service which will confer no little benefit upon Londoners and their correspondents in the country. A new col lection will be made at midnight from the pillar-boxes, and letters for the country posted up to that hour will be dispatched by the early newspaper trains, and will be delivered in the forenoon of the following day in many provincial towns. Chicago Tribuna Cruelty of an Ornithologist. Some unfeeling ornithologist in Dighton experimented oa a "yellowhammer," or golden-winged wood-pecker, by reaching into the hole a ad robbing her nest every day of all but one egg. The poor bird, de termined to raise a brood, kept on laying until she had laid thirty -six eggs on as many different days, then she rested one day and went at it again, and finally she actually laid seventy-one eggs in that un trustworthy nest Chicago Times On the Highest Mountains of Mexico.
