SOUTH 'SA FALSIFIERS.
Tto People of amo i Have aa Abhor rence of Trut’.i and Honesty. From the .Son Francisco Chronicle. To ibis day Samoan men and women, viili lew exceptions, wear the garments of their savttgo days—a doth, generally of the native make, known us the kapa, wound round the body above the hips and falling about fifteen inches. They tattoo their legs and sometimes other parts of the body with some substance giving a sky-blue color Their modern houses are built on the im memorial model of which every one who has read a book about the South sea lias seen a picture. Quite a large number of them add to their primitive style of dress an umbrella. Kain is very frequent in Samoa, but the chief use of the umbrella is as a shade from the sun. Lying so near the equator and surrounded by sea water, which always keeps a temperature on the surface of about go (Fahrenheit), the average iieat is very high, though by no means equal to that ex perienced in tropical Africa or other conti - nental regions in similar latitudes. It must lie confessed that the costumes and habita tions are very suitable to the climate, and that it would be an act of cruelty to impose on the Samoans any other style of life. The civilization they chiefly need is the enforcement upon them of respect for the precepts of the decalogue. For lying and for potty thieving they have few equals in Christendom or in heathendom. When family prayers are over at night their one idea is, if the moon be not too bright, to secure the household provisions for the next day from the bread-fruit and banana trees of someone else’s land. The white man is their favorite victim. From him they will, with the utmost good humor, steal anything they can lay their hands on, even if it be not of the slightest use to them. Iu every store—even in the smallest shop—will be found a most careful system of barricades interposed between the native customer and the goods, while the watchful eye of the store keeper is ever upon thorn so long as they haunt his premises. They scarcely ever come singly to buy anything. Having no settled occupation at any time, half a dozen of a family or a village will accompany to the store the fortunate one who has a dol lar to buy something with. Hence the necessity for barricades and vigilance. As for the habit of lying, it may be said that a Samoan so seldom speaks the truth (when he thinks any object is to be gained by not doing so) that he is never believed on his own word. These two accomplishments of lviug and stealing are taught to children by their motliere* who always find it necessary to have testimony at hand to deceive their husbands. THE CHLOROFORM MYTH. An Old Detective Explodes th e Familiar Belief in the Use of Chloroform by Burglars. An old detective, in the employ of Inspec tor Byrnes, was telling a Mail and Express reporter a blood-curdling tale of midnight robbery. "Why didn’t the burglar chloroform the man the moment he got into the room;” in auired the reporter. “You say he was lere half an hour before the man woke up and captured him.” "Don’t I tell you that the man was over 6 feet tall and as strong as a bull, while the burglar was only a boy lfi years old.” “Yes, but what of that.'” “Did you ever see a man chloroformed (” "No.” “Will you go into a doctor’s office some time and see how it is done? Unless a man is held down by force or submits himself willingly to the operation it is impossible to chloroform him. “Yes; but this man was sound asleep. ’ “What of that; Do you know how long it takes to put a man under the influence of chloroform ?” “A minute or so, I suppose.” “Two or three minutes rather, and the first application of the drug is certain to ■waken any living man who is not under the influence of some powerful narcotiq Be fore he had taken two whiffs of the anesthetic he would have been wide awake, and the robber would have been captured half an hour earlier than he was.” “But they do chloroform people some times, don't they?” asked the reporter. “If you refer to doctors, I would say yes, but if you mean burglars Iwo -id say no. I don't know a single instance, though the public and the press believe there are many every month. I think I can prove it to you. Every case where a man is choloro formed, according to his own account of his adventure, he has recovered. How often do you hear of men dying under the influence of chloroform when it is carefully adminis tered by a skilled physician ? Very often in deed. The chloroform must be properly mixed with fresh air, and even then the ex periment is often fatal. Now, do you think that an ignorant burglar could always avoid killing his victim? Neither do I nor any one else who lias given the subject a close study. "No, sir,” added the detective in conclu sion, “I tell you, chloroforming persons by thieves is a myth and a fraud. It is a story oi igninated by the victims to add a more startling flavor to their yarns and to ac count more clearly for their weak submis sion, which I have found is caused more by fear than chloroform.” Mannar in Oratory. From the Youths' Oompanion. Every school boy can recall Demosthenes’ action-action-action theory of oratory. Ac cording to it the orator’s ideas and vocabu lary are insufficient unless backed by the physical aids of voice, manner, figure and gesture. There are four modem orators, whose reputation, as handed down by tra dition, justify the theory. They are Patrick Henry, Mirabeau, Chatham and Whitfield. Neither the reported speeches of the statesmen nor the published sermons of the clergyman account for the oratorical effects they produced. Much must he allowed to the great occasions, when men as inflam mable as tinder were kindled by fiery words. But even this fact is not sufficient to explain the traditional reputation of these orators. They must have spoken with voices that expressed shades of passion, with looks that accentuated, and with ges tures that emphasized their breathing thoughts. Denton looked to audacity for success. These four men were as audacious in their utterances us human boldness would permit. Henry’s famous reply to tho interrupting speaker, “If this be treason, make tho most or it,” is paralleled by Chatham’s, “I hope some dreadful calamity will befall the country that will open the eyes of the King.” “Order! order!” shouted the House. “What I have spoken,” continued the audacious orator, “I have spoken condi tionally, but I now retract the condition. I speak it absolutely, and I ho|>o that some signal calamity will befall the country.” , “I know there is hut one step from tho capitol to the Tarpeian Rock,” thundered Mirabeau, when denounced in the Assem bly for his friendship to the royal family. A greater orator than either of these four, if wo take into account the matter and style of his speeches was Edmund Burke. Fancy, imagery, beauty of diction, wide views, deep thoughts and a continuous stream of argument are to be found in his great speeches. Yet many of them failed of effect when delivered, because tho speaker did not utter them with the voice, manner, figure or gesture of an orator. When Burke threw a dagger ou the floor of the House, exclaiming: “These are the presents which France designs for you!" the members laughed, and Sheridan said, “The gentleman has brought us the knife, but where is tho fork ?” But when Chatham waved his crutch, it became an instrument of oratory, and the House was as silent as if awed by the wand •fa mighty magician. Those facts suggest tiie importance of ad iress. It is not enough that a speaker have o;nething to say, and can suy it in fitting vents. He must speak it so that the hearers bill feel it. To do this lie must be aided by ‘aloe, manner, attitude and gesture, A GREASY MANDARIN. Very Bad Manners of a Chinaman of Rank—Gaudy Noble3 of ICorea. From the Si. Louis (f lobe-Democrat. The lino between mandarin and eooly is sometimes verv marked and sometimes very slight in China. In his own yuamen a man darin has minions about him by the scoro and he has despotic authority over them, and can decapitate them, beat and torture them at his will almost. Yet he suffers fa miliarities from his servants and hobnobs with t hem on an apparent equality that is amazing. A captqin of a Chinese man-of war when traveling oil a merchant steamer quite as likely travels steerage and chop sticks his food out of the common pans sent down for the general mess. He puts on no airs and seems to get on with his eooly comrades admirably. When we were leav ing Korea the brother of the Chinese Minis ter at Seoul was a passenger by the same steamer. He traveled in the first cabin, but he was as dirty as any eooly in the steerage, and his silk and satin brocade coat were filthy beyond belief. Ho was a stunted little Chinaman, with snaky black eyes and a greasy, yellow face, and he had disagree able ways of dropping his shoes and sitting feet and all in the wicker deck-chairs, which marked those chairs as something to be avoided by the white passengers after ward. When tucked comfortably in a dirty little bunch or lolling at ease he used to slip off his jade bracelet and sit and meditatively polish it against the side of his nose for an hour. He had a string of servants with him, that were trav eling steerage, and they were always swarming on the after deck and emulating their master in making themselves at home in the foreign chairs. As the servants could not be any dirtier than the master, and one looked as much like a mandarin as another, it was a difficult matter for the officers to tell which ones they should drive off to the steerage deck. As an offset to this eminent Chinaman there were two Koreans of rank, each with liis servant, and Korean masters and servants seemed to be on the same free and easy terms of equality as the Chinamen. The Koreans wore clean clothes, let it be said, although nothing could be more uu suited to travel or out of place on shipboard than their baggy trousers and fluttering gowns of white silk or linen. The Koreans seemed to have inexhaustible wardrobes, and the greasy Chinese mandarin would quit rubbing his bracelet on his nose to stare at the Koreans as they changed their blue silk overgowns to amethyst gauze ones or pea-green silk ones, or took them all off down to the 0116 short, gauzy coat that cov ered the reed framework that they wore next their skins. The Koreans evidently had an eye for color, for when they had half the rainbow on them in the way of coats they would flourish bright yellow silk hand kerchiefs or red-bound books. RECALLED BY THE RAWSON SHOOTING. A Tragedy Under the Shadow of a Chicago Church Wall. From the Chicago Mail. Tho shooting of Banker Rawson in front of the Third Presbyterian Church, by his step-son, on Sunday, recalls a tragedy that was enacted some twelve years ago, one night, under the shadow of St. Peter’s Church wall, on the corner of Polk and Clark streets. There is no similarity in the tragedies, except that both occurred almost in the doorways of churches. Crouching under the wall of St. Peter’s, on the night referred to, was a young girl. That section of the city was at that time, and is yet, accustomed to such sights, anil the patrolman thought nothing of this one. A young man turned the corner on Clark, going west on Polk street, when he was ac costed by the girl. A good deal quicker than it take* to tell this he was upon the ground calling for help, and the girl flourished a knife in the sickly glare of the lamp light on the corner, shrieked, and started for the river. She was overtaken and walked to the Harrison street station, for there were no patrol wag ons in those days. When she appeared be fore the officers of the station it was noticed that she was a girl of a singular order of beauty, and that her attire was rich and of a fashion which she did not get from any American plate. She refused to give her name at the time and refused to talk. A reporter told her she had kiliod her man. Closing her eyes a moment, she slowly and gracefully dropped upon her kuees, and the strangest and most pathetic prayer came from her lips for forgiveness. Then she pleaded for mercy for her “Billy,” and then, the feeling which prompted the act coming upon her again, she arose and gloated over her act with a frenzy that Bernhardt would have liked for a copy. The boy recovered—he was one of the class of that part of the town, and his name is of no consequence now. He was infatuated with another girl, and this had caused the maddened beauty to watch for him, There was no prosecution. But some years later, when she was in tatters and ugly and dissipated, she was arrested on suspicion of having some knowledge of the murder of Old Man Wilkie, on West Lake street, hut nothing came of it. That mur der is still a mystery. Excursions in Paris Sewers. From the Chicago News. Excursions through the gorgeous sewers of Paris —strange as this conjunction of noun and adjective must sound—are now all the rage in the fashionable world of the city. A few evenings since I was invited to accompany a select party. We started from the Palace Chatelet at ii o’clock, and de scended a little winding staircase, the steps and walls of which were covered with a green cloth, fringed by n red border. There was not the slightest dangei of soiling our clothes or of encountering the h ast disa greeable odor. On arriving at the foot of the stairs a fine display of fruits and vege tables was the first thing to greet our eyes. These products were from Gennevilliers. and were grown in gardens watered by the sewers. We got into a wagon, in which were seats for twenty persons. Off we went, shoved along by solid-looking fellows, all neatly dressed. Above us was a mass of tubes and pipes. They are the water pipes, the two largest containing our drinking water from the Vanne, and water from the Oureq, which latter is used for washing the streets and sidewalks. Then there were the pneumatic tubes in which we could hear the rattle of the dispatch boxes. Suddenly we heard the passengers in the wagon ahead of us uttering cries of admiration. We were under the Rue de Rivoli, but soon we reached the crossing of the Pont- Neuf. This tunnel was lighted from end to end with garlands of colored lamps. The effect was fairy like. The same effect, was produced under the Ruo do Louvre, the Rue de Richelieu, and tho Place des Pyramides, where precisely under the statue of Joan of Arc appeared in luminous glass the arms of the city of Paris. We passed along, still following tho Rue do Rivoli, where each house has its number iu the sewer, just as iu the streel, until wo reached tho Place de la Concorde. There the electric lights, crossing their fires with the reflection of the Venetian lamps, turned tho square into a sort of ball room. Nothing was wanting, not even music. We all got out of the wagons to embark in boats furnished with cushioned seats. The music was in the first boat, which was decorated with flags and lamps. The boats woro started. Wo followed the entire route of the Rue Royalo by the light of fifty dazzling electric lumps. After a quarter of an hour in this boat we landed at the foot of a staircase, which we mounted, and in three minutes we were above the ground at the Madeleine. It was much warmer in the streets than it was in the sewers, where the temperature, summer and winter, is always uniformly pleasant. Deserving n.'

From the Youths' Companion. Moorish traders in camels seem to be no more honest than Yankee traders in horses have the reputation of being. The author of “Among the Arabs” describes one of their tricks, which, according to his ac count, only an expert is likely to detect. Such an ingenious method of “raising tho wind” might put even the shrewdest Ameri can to the blush. The story was told to the author by a Frenchman, who had traveled for some time in Algiers. Oil one occasion, while in an Arab village, he declared his intention of buying a young camel. No sooner hail his desire become known than at least twenty camels were brought lor his inspection. They were all fine-looking animals, in ex cellent condition, apparently. In fact, the only fault our Frenchman could perceive was that they were too fat. After a proper amount of deliberation and bargaining, he .selected the one which appeared to be the leanest, and paid the price agreed upon. Tiie next morning, when he went to look at his fat camel, he found a living skeleton, on whose almost fleshless bones the skin hung in large folds and whose best develop meat was about tho joints. The method by which the camels are sud denly “fattened” for the market is thus de scribed : An incision about an inch in length is made in each ear between the skin and the flesh. Into this a small tube is fitted and secured by a silk cord. There it re mains, hidden from the observation of all but the initiated and ready for use at any moment. When a merchant who is not acquainted with the blowing-up trick conies to buy a camel the dealer takes two tubes, each a yard long, and, inserting one end of each in the small tubes just described, through the other ends two Arabs blow with all their might, until the animal has attained the requisite degree of plumpness. The inflating tubes are then withdrawn and the air is prevented from escaping by means of a cork smeared with pitch. The poor camel now becomes, apparently, quite lively and frisky, trying to throw it self on the ground, or to press against the wall or a tree, or whatever other object may be. at hand, so as to get rid of the wind. It is generally too well w atched by the ras cally Arab to succeed iu accomplishing its purpose. Sometimes, however, it manages to elude his vigilance - and then, if the cork is not very securely fastened, the wind escapes with a whistle like that of a steam engine, and tho fine-looking beast suddenly collapses into the miserable object it really is. Marie Louise’s Opinion of Napoleon. J. H. Hager in the October Cosmopolitan. When the divorce between Napoleon and Josephine had been announced, reports were put in circulation that Marie Louise was to be the new Empress of France. Re ferring to these rumors she writes, under the date of Jan. 10, 1810: “I don't believe a word of what they say. Napoleon would not risk a refusal, and there is too much harm that he can yet do us. And papa is too good to with to force me in so grave a matter. I let them talk, but pity the poor Princess that he will choose. However, I'm very sure that lam not the victim predestined by politics.” And a few days later: “Since Napoleon’s divorce I expect to find the name of the woman he has chosen in every number of the Frankfort Journal. I con fess that this delay makes me anxious in spite of myself. 1 have, however, placed my fate in the hands of ,providence, which alone knows what will conduce to our hap piness; but if ill-luck will have it, I am readv to sacrifice my happiness for tile good of .lie State. One only finds true happiness in duty done, even at the price of one's peace of mind.” Again, on Jan. 23, she writes as follows: “I know that they already have me mar ried, in Vienna, to the great Napoleon, but I hope the rumor is unfounded. However, I am none the less thankful for your kind wishes: if, in spite of all, the thing comes to pass, I shall be the only one not to rejoice at it.” In a letter bearing the same date addressed to her friend. Mile, de Poutet, she adds that she amuses hei-self by composing waltzes, a singular mode of preparing for an heroic act! A hiatus ot three months now occurs in the correspondence. In the meantime Marie Louise, having been married to tho modern Antichrist, and finding him not so detestable as he was painted, has become reconciled to her lot. The next letter is dated, “Compiegue, 24 April, 1810. I wish, my dear Victoria,” she again writes to Mile, de Poutet, who had herself just been married, “that you may be us happy as I am, and that you may find in life en joyment equal to mine.” She also praised Napoleon’s easy disposition, his willingness to oblige, and his graciousness, and de clared that her happiest moments were those that she passed alone with him. After the birth of her son, the King of Rome,she prays Heaven that the child may, like its father, mak' all those happy that shall be brought in contact with and known him. She has but one cause of unhappiness —her husband’s absence, “1 can only be happy near him! May God ever preserve you from such a separation; it is too much for a loving heart, and should it continue longer, I feel that I shall succumb.” In bid ding him good-bye, she was convulsed by “a more violent emotion than sbe had ever experienc 'd in leaving her family.” If a day passed without receiving letters, she was at once thrown into the deepest despair, and when one catqe it only comforted her tor a few hours. Lost In Chicago. From the Chicago News. In the month of September 132 persons were reported missing, and up to last night the tally tor this month was 9i. The list includes’ children of tender years, boys old enough to run awttv from home and ambi tious to become cowfxiyg and Indian fighters, wayward girls impatient of home restraint, men and ••■omen in tue prime of life and in their dotage. It is impossible to tell how many of them were afterward found, be cause people do not usually report to the police anything but bad news. It a miss ing person does not tun up promptly his relatives visit the police stations daily seek ing for information und for aid in prosecut ing the search, but when he is found his friends are too overjoyed to think ot letting the police know of it. It is estimated by an officer of large experience that fully nine teuths of them turn si up all right. Tiie list is not confined to residents of the citv, but includes many visitors, whose sudden disappearance caused their trien Is anx ety. In some cases the missing persons carried considerable money, furnishing grounds for suspicion of foul play, but in tiie great majority of cases tnere was little clew as to what became ot them.
