Pow the Marvelous journal Is Man

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,

management? Well, as lam the manager

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

some of the staff? This is M.Marinoni’s

"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.

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

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

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.”

A great saving of time —the postal depart

“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
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.
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.
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.

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
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
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
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.”
