PARIS’ PETIT JOURNAL.
Pow the Marvelous journal Is Man aged, Print ad and Distributed. From the yew York World. Paßls. Feb. 26. —“What is our secrets” repeated M. Cassigueul, as he received me in his fine office in the Petit Journal man sien. “Weil, what is yours? ‘Enterprise, liberality S’ We can say the same. Good management? Well, as lam the manager 1 m ust not talk about that. Yes, M. Mari ams idea of the anonymity of the writers Ij i ; g strictly preserved has greatly assisted. The efforts of one and all are for the Petit Journal and for it alone. There are no personalities here, and but one individuality bat of our juornal. Have our serials much effect on the sale of the pa er? An immense effect. Most of our readers buy the paper for the sake of the feuilletons alone. So we nav high prices to our novelists. I think lie Montepin has received the largest figure iiaid for a serial story, namely, $14,U00. For the right, of reproducing this feuilleton tha tirm of Kouff & Cos. paid him an additional £IO,OOO, and spent about $40,000 in advertising it. Twenty-four thousand dollars is a good price for a novel which hoes not pretend to have any merit beyond that of interesting a very large number of readers. Yes, Xavier de Montepin is the creator of this class of serial. he older feuilletonists are his imitators. Shall I show ion over the house and introduce you to some of the staff? This is M.Marinoni’s room.” A lofty room white and gold; mirrors, painted ceiling and door-pieces ala Bouch er; stiff-backed oak chairs covered with green velvet. "The committe-room. Wo meet hero every Saturday and discuss matters. M. Mari non i directs every thing. I will first introduce you to Blaise Thlberte, other wise M. George Royer, editor of our literary supplement. W hat was our idea in starting that supplemenment? Well, we were doing so well seven days in the week we thought it would be good to add an eighth day. And it has paid well. Our circulation? It averages 1,600,000. We don’t claim or advertise 1,000,000, because that average is not definitely established We shall do so soon. Just at present things are compara tively slack. During the recent Presidential crisis we went up to 1,400,(WO a day. Per haps, now, you have noticed that after a period in which tha public has been very eager ior news it cools off. It is cooling off just now. Salaries? Editor Escofller gets $6,000, Pierre G.ffai and $4,000, and so on. Ah, here is M. Royer’sofiice.” A charming room luxuriantly furnished. Heavy carpets, elegant furniture, some choice pictures and engravings on the walls. “1 think, monsieur,” says M. Royer, “I had the pleasure o„' meeting you chez Countess Kessler at dinner the other night. Yes? Comfortable here? Yes, we have noth ing to complain of. The supplement is doing very well indeed. My- work consists chiefly in reading manuscripts. We get hundreds every week. I have some two thousand five hundred on hand just now, in the cemetery, as I call it, and which I will show you. Of all sorts and colors. Some are the most impossible things 1 Lady con tributors? Yes, a very fair percentage. It is young girls who send u the most o jec tionable stories, many unlit for publication. We pay sc. a line for short stories and for serials according to the author’s name. Another part of my work is to answer questions. Hundreds of questions of all loads, political, social, financial, etc. Here, for instance, ‘Should I marry M. What's His Name? from a young lady. Questions as to investments w e never answer. The other day- an old lady in the country sent mu $3,000 and askod mo to invest them for her. Said sue could trust nobody but ms. Of course 1 had to refuse. One has a pater nal role to play, which is sometimes fatigu ing. Ah, here is the cemetery. All tlr sj Sigeon-holes are full of MRS. Do wo return ISS. i Sometimes. We say we don’t but if stamps are sent we try to. People often claim MSS. which they have never sent, and try to swindle us. Ihtd a very annoy ing case of the kind recently. Poetry? No, monsieur, we have not a pottry-reading clientage.” Here wo left M. Royer—an amiable gen tleman and clever wi iter—to work his way through the 2,500 MSS. in his luxurious salon. M. Cassigneul then took me to M. Pierre Giff i d’s office P.erre Gff ud Was a loug time on the stalf of the Figaro as sp cal correspondent. At the Petit, Journal he acts as news editor. An i nergetic-looking man, pleasant and courteous. “I am trying to erganiz.' a service of re portage on a large scale. I want the Petit Journal reportage to partake if the nature of a government office. \Ve must have news as full and as smart as all the Minis tries put together. Already we get much news before the government offices. For Paris we have a large staff cf reporters, and usual routine arrangements for police news. But I may say all Paris reports for us. If anything happens anywhere a stranger is sure to drop ia very excited. ‘Sir, lam a reader of the Petit Journal. I have pleasure in informing you that so and so has just happened in our hou e.’ D >es it for the love of the thing. Unattached reporters are also always ou the lookout. We give a preru.um of $l, $2 or $3 for a bit of original local news. Of course, unless we know the man, we confirm his information before using it. five, 6or 7c. a line is our pay for news reports. Flimsies? No we will have none of them. Yes. A day or two ago a man gave us a bit of news. It appeal’d simultaneously in the Figaro and Le Petit Journal, 'That man fell between two stools, and his services won’t be wanted here or there any more. We pay at once in principle. In fact, every ten days. A re porter can, however, always get his money if he wants it. In tiie provinces every oie of the 15,000 news agents of the paper is our correspondent; but besides, we have arrange ments with some three hundred journalists m as many important towns. Yes, it is hard work ke -p.ng them together and in order. And there is plenty more work in store. I have a big scheme in my head.” “And you are tho man to work it out,” I thought, as I followed Mr. Cassigneul away. I he composing-room, various offices of various members of the staff, the telegraphic tment, with a special wire allowingof communication with all purtsof the world— A great saving of time —the postal depart ment,, the town supply department, with •cores of small handcart*for the use of the distributors—all these we visited. “The distributors have an allowence of v l ' on every thousand they distribute at tiie news agencies in Paris. Somo men make as much as $5 a day. Their work begins at 4a. m. and finishes at 10 a. m. *j's. tiie places are much coveted. 1 have hooked the names and uplications of some o&nditates for vacancies two, three veal’s •go.’’ , How silent the place is,” I remarked.

Mari ™hi and mysrlf both insist is that all our rt'l'te should have clean hands. Clean “Wdsdo cloan w ork ” . That was Blazac’s sine qua non ot good titerary work,” , es. nnd ours for nil kiudsof work. Ah, is the editor’s office. M. Escofller, the of the New York World." Delightfully quiet, this room; simply “I'ti.-hcl, but comfortable. A a- lalus of lenhonic and other nnpartus. The walls ''"reyi w ith pigeon holes. The table strewn oh slip-, proofs, copy, telegrams. A gentlemanly, modest and distinguished •tikn „ M. Eseolnier. Yes,” he savs, “we owe our success to * ls . that we nil merge our individualities in individuality of the paper. We are . here, as it were, en famtllf, memiier* of „7" family. I have Irecn here from the be s nning, and Oonsigneul joined shortly forward*. At first the advantage of tionvtnity was not undersiood. Leo otherwise Timothy Trarnln, was • '’i.‘ K 10 w i'ite one lea/lor dally. It was “ud of literary tour de fores that 1 amused and interested the public. People u~ed to say it was impossible for one men to do it. So Lesples used to write his articles in public places—cafes, etc.—-where all the world could see him. Of course, that could not last. “Thomas Gremin’ is my signature, but you must not think that I write the daily' leader that appears above that signature. I could not ao it in con- I junction with all my other work. Remem ber, we print three editions a day. I write some of the leaders, it is true, and revise all. That is, of course, my priveige to—revise, al er, cut—in fact, edit all leaders. We are and remain tairly independent in the matter of politics, in case of war we should be Opportunists, of course. For the rest, my dear colleague, I will leave you in Cassigneul’s hands. He will show you everything.” M. Escoffier very politely escorted me part of the way on my journey, and re tired, after a warm shake of the hand, to his Sisyphus task. The tirst edition was meanwhile being printed. We saw M. Mari noni’s presses at work aucl next visited the stereotyping department, where the stereos of the day before were being melted down in several furnaces. “These meu get $2 a day'. We never have any accidents. All the metal tilings are swept up and melted. During the siege we made bombs for the National Defense out of our stereos. Yes, militant journalism in its true sense. We sent: leaders, news, serials and ailvertisi'ments indiscriminately among Messieurs the Prussians. Ah, here is one of the bombs. A tidv engine, you see. A novel way of disseminating our information? Well, yes.” “Apropos of advertisements, your prices are very high, n'est ce-pas ?” “Very. From $2 a line for simnle adver tisements to S2O a line tor reclames, or advertisements appearing in the body' of the journal. Downright puffs at still higher rates. Here, this advertisement, which, as you see, occupies a third of our back page, represents 500 lines at $2 aline—t. e., SI,OOO. This same firm had an anecdotal advertise ment in the other day on the third page of fifty lines at $20 —t. e,, SI,OOO. But we could get along first rate without a single adver tisement. We are pay'iug 100 oer cent. now. If we dispensed with the profits of the advertisement department we should still be able to pay 50 per cent, to the share holders. Our sales bring us in $7,000 net per diem, leaving $3,000 per diem for the middlemen. Now, here is the folding-room. Fifty women, you see, of all ages, folding papers for the evening mails for distant subscribers. These ladies earn from 60c. to $1 per diem, fixed wages. We insist, how ever, on their folding a certain number. If ymu will come along here you will see the clerks’ room. Each clerk has a certain number of newsagents to attend to. These m n earn from SSO to SBO a mouth. No; none of them shows literary ability. Yes; everybody earns good money here, but it is the novel-writers who get the liou’s share.” At the end M. Cassigneul took me back to M. Marinoni’s room and introduced me to the President. I told M. Marinoni about our Hoe press and about our circulation, and he was much interested and would have settled down to a pleasant chat which would have made a good peroration to tnis inter view, when he was called away. He has the same simple and modest bearing that I had noticed ia all the members of this family. Avery happy family it must be. A MUSICAL PRODIGY. The Wonderful Talent of Little lone Mathis, of Oxford. From the Anniston Hot Blast. In the show-case at an Oxford drug store yesterday afternoon a reporter saw a piece of music, “lone’s First Thoughts, by lone Mat is, of Oxford, Ala. , aged 3% years.” On the cover leaf of the pages was a litho graph of a chubby' faced little girl that be tokened intellect and vivacity. So struck with the lithograph of the little girl’s face was the reporter, and the tenderness of her years, that a desire arose within him to meet the little lady, and, if possible, to hear her play her own composition. The desire was made known to a friend, who introduced him at the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. Mathis. As the reporter and his friend reached and entered the. gate the form of a wee little lady appeared from behind a flower pit in the side yard, and the muddy little hands gave evidence that mud pies, the de light in childhood’s days of now many a gray haired sire and matron, was the pas time of the hour with little lone, for she it was, came running to see who the visitors were. She glanced only and then darted back to her sport, leaving her seniors of tha household to answer the door boll’s ring. To Mrs. Mathis the reporter made known his errand. “Certainly,” said Mrs. Mathis, “the little girl is out making mud pies, but I’il call her aud she will play for you, sir, with pleasure.” In a few moments Mrs. Mathis and little Miss lone entered the parlor and after the wee little composer had shaken the hand of her caller witti a cheerful “I’m glad-to-meet-you-sir,” she crawled upon the piano stool, which, by the way, was very near her own height, and without a moments hesitation began playing her fav orite composition “lone’s First Thoughts,” her tiny little feet the meanwhile swing ing to and fro in childish playfulness. The rendition of the little miss’ composition was very effective, and the sweet strains of music would have done full justice to one of more mature years and culture. Her own composition was followed by two very sweet little ballads: “I’m going to write to Papa” and “I Know a Little Gi 1.” E ich of these was very sweatly sung,the wr is being clearly sounded, the voice well modulated and the respiration perfect. After the two little ballads, Miss May, little lone’s aunt, joined her at the piano, and several duets, difficult ones, too, were played. Among these the reporter recognized the familiar strains of the Mocking Bud Schottische, with variations, and Helter iSkelter Gallop. As the flaxen-haired, blue-eyed little beauty sat at the piano, her ang -l’s face shone bright and made sunshine in the shady parlor. As her tiny little fingers thumped the keys, never missing a note nor making a discord, she would occasionally look up at the notes of an open piece of music on the rack as though it were the piece she was playing. Noticing this the re porter asked Mrs. Mathis if the little prod igy played by note. “No, no,” replied Mrs. Mathis, “she doesn’t know a note. She is yet so very young we haven’t attempted to teach her anything about music at all. She plays altogether by ear and can play without the sligiitest hesitation any second-grade pioce of music she hears. She can play a bass ae caiiipaidment in duet to any third or f urth grade piece of music, whether she has heard it before or not. All she wants when she goes to the piuno to play a duet is to catch the first chord in the treble, and then striking the chords in the bass, she is ready to begin the iluet. She watch s the hands of the treble player a id notes the changes quick enough to"make the proper changes in the buss without missing a note.” Little lone is now tour years of age, and has been eons.antlv at the piano since she was two and a half years old. At that age she began playing, and from time to time has composed numerous very sweet little airs, only one of which has yet been pub lished. Ludden & Batjs Southern Music House, Savannah, Ga., who published “lone’s Thoughts,” have complimented th little composer very highly us have all musicians who have heard her play, or have seen the music ot her first composi tion. Properly handl'd she will develop into one of the finest mudoians the world has yet produced. Already she stands without a parallel. History fail* to record a single instance where oue of this little lady’s tender years has composed and bad published a piece of music.

TIIE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY. MARCH 13. 1888. MARRIED HI3 SISTER. A True Romance of Wilkes and Lin coln Counties. From the Washington ttfa.) Chronicle. It was many decades of years ago that the forest country in the vicinity of Graves’ mountain, was occupied by a numerous and opulent class of people. Hot many furlongs from its face was the palatial home of a gentleman, whom we will designate as Mr. William Constance, a person of elegant culture; Mrs. Constance and daughter, Aline, made up the family circle, a son having died in ffifancy. In tue distance on u neighboring hill, was the stately mansion of Mr. A. Willierforce and far up the valley, were the homes of John Smilax, Al xatider Duncan and other planters if a primitive and heroic race;and who had accumulated large estates in laud and stores. In n southeasterly course from the mountain there still remain traces of the once famous home of Col. Verdier, con temporary of aforesaid names und the members of whose household are the main actors in the following narrative. Col. Verdier enjoyed the confidence of his people and hold the honorable position of State Senator. Mrs.' Verdier, a lauy of rare accomplishments and great personal beauty, made her home the resort of social and lashionable gatherings. Two children lived to bless this happy family and were nurtured in this, the home of their infancy. Eugene, the eldest, and sister Jolina, cher ished for each other a romantic fondness, something more akin to that of lovers, than the affection usually belonging to brother and sister. This attachment, forsooth, as they grew older, was a subject of comment and in time became a neighborhood’s scandal. Eugene was a young man of commanding figure, tall and stately, possessed with a mind of the finest mould and wrought for immortality. He bore a striking resem blance in person and character to Mr. Wm. Constance, which gave encouragement to a malicious scandal, that Eugene was of doubtful paternity. Ihe intimate relations bet ween the Constance and Verdier families had continued uninterrupted for many years, but became jeopardized by recent rumors, that tended to estrange them, and wound the pride and high character, especially of the latter. Mutual friends, ever and anon, en couraged an attachment between Eugene and Aline Constance, but bis partialities were otherwise inclined. It is no doubt true, that these fabrications concerning the questioned relationship between brother and sister had early been breathed into the ears of Eugene and Jolina, and gave grounds t > indulge in hopes fondly cher ished; but the confide t assurances of loving parents should have dispelled such a deiu sion. Simultaneous with lively rumors defam atory of the fair name of the Verifiers came the lamentable tidings that Eugene and sister had in an adjoining county, pre sented themselves at the hymenial altar and pledged their eternal fidelity as man and wifi-."Col. Vernier, receiving unmistakable tidings of the fact, hurried to the rescue, and carried his s. n and daughter to his home. Such a panic has seldom been wit nessed in a community. It was urged by many that the strong arm of the law should be brought to bear in the case. A committal triai was held, and the subject brought first before the church of which Col. Verdeer was a mem ber. Counsel was employed pro and con— witnesses subpoenaed far and near, who might shed light on this embarrassing sub ject—Eugen i and sister, or wife, as the case may be. were under arrest and gave bond for at pearance at trial. The occasion was witnessed by listening hundreds, eager to catch every word. Many prominent citizens gave evidence of having known the parties from their infancy, and did not question the relationship of brother and sister. Others again, testified to ru mors heard and convictions based on cer tain facts that the parties were not full brother and sister, The case began now to assume a most novel, romantic phase. A witness was suborned and swore that he knew the child Eugene was left on a chilly night at the front door of Col. V. in a basket and taken in as an ad pted child. Mrs. Verdier and husband testified to the identity of their child. Counsel for defense now introduced two or more witnesses hitherto withheld and they gave evidence of facts so unmistakable that the trial terminated in a most trium phant vindication of the parties. It appeared that John Sinilax and Mr. Alex Duncan, two most worthy and respec table citizens, had remained in possession of a secret for years, and for reasons not given testifi and to a boyish indiscretion which their maturcr judgment now condemned, butfor which act on their part they most humbly beg for forgiveness of parents of parties ut law, as Iho act committed was without malice aforethought. Mr. Hmilnx then made known to the court, that fifteen or sixteen years ago, that Mr. Alex. Duncan with himself met at Wheat's camp ground during a protracted service, and while Mrs. Constance and Mrs. Verdier were at the “stand,” and then babies enjoying sweet repose at one of the tents, they put into execution the design of exchanging the children’s clothing. A pros pect of threatening weather hastened the mothers to suatcii up their respective babies recognized by its clothing, and hurried homeward. As mentioned already, Mrs. Constance soon after lost her infant. Eugene still lives to gladden his home, and with his beautiful wife adorns the society of which they are honored mem bers. Congratulations followed the termi tion of this complex case, and descendants .of Eugene, if living, no doubt exult in the assurance that he was not his mother’s child. A Locomotive Lost In Quicksand. From the Wichita Beacon. “In the construction of the Ktin-as Pacific and Atchison, Toj eka aid Santa Fe railroads,” said H. L. Carter, a railroad co .tractor, ot St. Joseph, the other day, “one difficulty of frequent occurrence un met with, which, as far as my experience goes, i> unique in railroad history. I refer to the trouble arising from quicksands. From western Kansas to the mountains qui ksands are to lie found in nearly every stream, no matter how- small, aid to suc cessfully b idge them required an expendi ture o it of ail proportion to the size of stream to be crossed. We iried pile driv ing, but the longest pit s disappeaied with ou touching bottom. Then filling wi*li eanh and stone was attempted, and met with equally poor success, as ttie quicksand was apparently capable of swallowing the entire Rocky Mou tains. The only means of crossing a quicksand was fouud to be to build short truss bridges across t hem. This was vei-y expensive, but was the only thing to be done. “As an instance of t he practically bottom less nature of tue quicksands, I may cite the ca of an engine that ran off the tmek at River Bend, about ninety miles from Denver, on the Kansas Pacific. The engine, a large fre ght, fell into a quicksand, aud iu t wenty minutes hail entbely disappeared. Within two days the company sent out a gang of men and a wrecking train to raise the engine. To their surprise they c mid. not flue a trace of it. Careful search was made, inagnitie 1 rods were sunk to the depth of 05 foet, but no engine could be found. It bad sunk beyond human ken, und from that day to this has never been discovered. Cattle and horses are fre quently lost, the only animal that is safe being it muie—the only animal that never gets caught. No greater instance of the intelligence of this much-maligned qua druped can be cited than the skill and care with which it avoida all unsound bottom. As its hoofs are much smaller and narrower than those of a horse it would mire iu places where a horse could salely pass. Recogniz ing this fact, whenever a mule feels the an .und giving way under its feet it draws back and cannot be induced to advance a step, although a whole drove ot horses may have immediately preceded.” American Queen Lager Bear.
