Marie Corelli is. according to a Lon
don writer, a petite blonde, with blue
gray eyee, a short, rather aquiline nose
and quantities of fluffy, flaxen hair, ar
ranged in curia over her forehead and
wiled becomingly round the back of
her small and shapely head. She
dresses with Parisian elegance, and
■when at home wears ‘a clinging bebe
frock of liberty silk, with turquoise
butterflies and emerald butterflies
pinned Into the lace about the throat,
or else trailing garments of sheeny
satin and shimmering plush.”
Col. John Hay’s ’Pike County Bal
lads" are being quoted in England Just
now as showing what manner of man
Is to represent us at St. James. If the
Briton expects to And in Col. Hay a
raw American, of the Joaquin Miller
type, who despises book lamin’, he will
be mistaken. Colonel Hay has. so to
speak, ’’lived down” his early efforts
as a writer of dialect. He haa in recent
years printed o<*c*»ionally a poem In
conventional English, not distinguish
able from quantities of verse which ap
pear In American and English period
icals. But be Is rarely or never classi
fied as an American poet. He writes an
occasional ’’piece” because he likes It,
but he belongs to the school of Glider.
Johnson and company, and Is anything
but aggressive In what may be called
literary Americanism. It will be better
tor the Briton not to think of CoL Hay
as a man of letters at all. but as a gen
tleman of culture, a polished man of
the world, with a deftness In affairs
with high knowledge of public usage
who has done nothing of consequence,
outside of his history of Lincoln, sim
ply because "it has not been necessary
for him to hustle.”
The statistical abstract of the United

the secretary of the treasury, and Just

$146.46; in 1882. $61.41; in 1892, s4l 89
and in 1895, $30.02. Iron rails, stand

in the year 1850 were quoted at $47.88:
in 1864 at $126; in 1873 at $76.67. and in
1882 at $45.50. Steel rails were not
made in commercial quantities before
the year It ft, and at that date at mill*

In 1873 they had dropped to $120; in
1879 to $48.25; in 18S0 they made a
Jump to $67.50; in 1889 they had de

cago, In 1887 were $3.15; in 1892 they
had fallen to $1.49, and in 1895 had
risen to $1.69. The ups and downs of
these values are to be traced to vari
ous causes It is, however, noticeable
that the downward trend has been ,
more steady and less erratic.
