Prof. Max Muller holds Tennvson be as typically a Cambridge man lluskio was an Oxford man. Here is an amusing anecdote: 'It was generally after dinner, when smokioer his pipe and sipping bis whis key and water, that Tennyson began to thaw, and to tike a more active part in conversation. People who have not known him then have hardly known him at all His pipe was almost in- despentable to hiuo, and I remember one time, when I and several friends were staying at his house, the question of tobacco turned up. I confessed that for years I bad been a perfect slave to tobacco, so that I could neither read nor write a lice without smoking, but that at last I had rebelled agaisst this slavery, and had entirely given up tobacco. Some of his friends taunted Tennyson that ho could never give up ouacco. 'Anybody can ao mat, tie said, 'if he ehooses it.' When bisfriends still continued to doubt and to tease him, 'Well,' he said, 'I shall give up smoking from tonight.' The very same evenirg I was told that he throw- his pipes and his tobacco out of the win dow of his bad room. The next da7 he was more charming, though some what ha'f-rishteous. The second day he became very moody and captious: he third day no one knew what to do with him. But after a disturbed night was told that he got out of bjd in the morning, went quietly into tne garaen, picked up one of his broken pipes, tutied it with tae remains ot tne tobacco scattered about, and then, having had a few puffs, came to breakfast, all right again. Nothing was said any mora about giving up tobacco." Trailing the ICobbcrg. Comstock dispatch: O. Lattimer and W. K. Jones of Del R'o, of Sheriff Jones' posse who went with the ran gers from Lozier on the trail of the train robbers, stopped here last night. They reported that they followed the trail from Lozier out by Packingham' ranch, 50 miles from Lozier. The rob" bers cut Mr. Paekingbam's wire fence, went through his pasture, crossed the Feces river about 50 miles from Lozier and stopped after going 10 miles on the east side of the Pecos and burned some papers, leaving tome -$2 or $3 in silver on the ground. The robbers killed their pack horse at this point and cut out the brand and dfstroyed it. The pos-e stopped the second night at W. H. Hoover's ranch. A heavy rain fell that night, which obliteratad the trail. The posse then separated into three companies to scout throu?h the hills hunting a trail. Mr. Lattimer and Mr. Jones returned to Del Rio this morn ing. Klo Grande Dam -Case. The ruling of the United States at torney general in the Mesilla Valley, Rio Grande, dam case does not appear to be linal, but rather partakes of the nature of a preliminary injunction, with a rule to show cause why it should cot be made permanent. Judge A. B. Fall, solicitor general of Ne Mexico, and W. A. Hawking of Silver City, attorneys for the Elephant Butte and Selden Dam company, are preparing to present an array of facts to the de partment of justice when the case is called for hearing, combating the con tention of the war department that the Rio Grande is a navigable stream as far up as El Pa-o, and as such has been recognized by coDgress. United States Attorney W. B. Cnildcrs has received instructions from the department of justice on the subject, ana says no will procure an injunction it necessary to prevent worn on the dams, pending a full hearing by the attorney general.

How the Chinese lo Tbings. Everything relating to the Orient is of interest. The Chinese do everything back ward. Thev exactly reverse the usual order of civilization. Note first that the Chinese compass points to tha touth instead of the north. The men wear skirts and the women trousers, The men carry on dressmaking and the women carry burdens. The spoken language of China is cot written, acd the written language is not spoken. Books are read backward, and what we call foot-notes are inserted in the top of the page. The Chineso surname cotce3 first in stead of last. The Chinese shake the'r own hands instead cf the hands of thosa they greet. The Chinesa dress in white at fun erals, and in mourning at wedHngs: while old women always serve as brides maids. The Chinese launch their vessels sideways, and mount their horses from the off side. Tha Chinese begin dinner with desert, and end with soup and fish. Gc ne t. Cornelius Currao, of Bilticnore, and C. E. Dunn, or Huntington, Ind., both delegates to the conductors' conven tion at Los Angeles, have mysteriously disappeared. Curran, who was accom panied to Los Angeles by bis wife and two children, left his apartments in the Clifton house early Monday morn ing tailing his wife he would return about noon. She has neither seen nor heard from him since, and as he had on his person $150 and a gold watch, grave fears for his eafety are enter tained by his family and friends. Dunn, who is also married but un accompanied by his family, disappeared about the same time from his lodgings in the Menlo hotel. Before leaving he deposited his valuables with the pro prietor of the hotel. A national convention of the maimed and halt, legless, armless, and other wise mutilated unfortunates from every state in the union is to be one of the features of St. Louis' annual expo sition next fall. Leading surgeons and manufacturers nf artificial limbs are the promoters. The object of the con vention will be the amelioration of the condition of this class of unfortunates, and a special program, containing sub jects or interest to tnem, will be pre sented for discussion. One very' im portant purpose of the convention is to bring into closa relationship the sur geons and the makers of artificial limbs, and it is believed that conferen ces between the cripp'ed, the surgeons and the manufacturers of limbs will re sult in great improvements whicn will tend to the advantage ot the unfortu nate. It is estima'cd that fully 75.000 cripples will be in attendance during the week the convention is to last, and the railroads will transport them free.

According to the Novoc Vremva, Li Hung Chang has recently statt d that the bicycle was a Chinese invention, known as the ''happy dragon"' in the year 2300 B. C when it became so popular among Chinese lalies that their household duties were neglected the result being that cycling was suppressed by order of the emperor. TON OF rmVDKIt EXPLODED. Second LarRest lilast on Kccord Fired N'r Vera Cruz. The great drift s-hot at the Panttelas qua-rie--, t Vera Cruz for the purpese of disiolyi-.ir o.-k to ba emp'oyed in the hurb.r works there, has ben suc cessful 'y fired by the uel'-known rail way c uit.rac'o!', W. J. McGavock. 1 his was the second largest blast ever tired on this continent, that at Hell Gate occupying the fir?t place by rea son of the qmnt-'t v of powder exploded. At Panuelrs 37,350 pounds of .lodson Improved powder was firei, and 200, 000 tons of rock were dislodge 1. The report, was not loud cor the displace ment of the blastei rock considerable Toe frag-ments did not even reach the Vera Cruz railway track, which is 70 meters distant. The distance which they roiled was between oO and 60 in'-tprs. I The announcement of the intended ' explosion had occasioned widespread , aiarm in the vicinity. The inhabitants of Cordoba, about live kilometers higher up on tha Vera Cruz raiiaoad than the quarries, petitioncu f resident Diaz to prevent the explosion lne president answered that the matter was in compe'ent bands, and that the people of Cordoba need have no ap prehension. Nevertheless many of them abandoned their homes, and went no to Orizaba, and those who remain ed at home set their consciences in or der in anticipation of a speedy trip to the next world. The event showed how groundless was the alarm. Mr. McGavock's plans were well de vised. He ran a drift 20 rreters in length to the mountain at a height of 5 meters above the level of the patio. From the extremities of the drift he ran two at right angles to the first, so that the three resembled the letter "T," each of the cross-arms being 31 meters in length. The charges, two ,of 150 boxes, two of 125, one of 100 and one of !7, .were placed at intervals along the arms of the 'T," each de posit baing connected with an electric fuse, which Mr. McGavock fired at a distance of 35 meters by means of a simpa pull up battery. The blasted rock tumbled bodily forward from the mountain side, and then rolled on wards toward the railway track for a distance of between 50 and (iO meters. It is suggested that on January 1. 1900,a new division of the year into thirteen months ba insituated. If such a division were made the first twelve months would have twenty eight days, or four weeks each, and the new mouth twenty-nine days, to make 305, and thirty in leap 'ye&ra. After a few days there would be no need to refer to calendars, as the same day of the week would have the same date through the year. If January 1st were, say, Monday, every Monday would ba the 1st, 8th, 15th. and 22-d, acd so on all through the year. The changes of the moon would be on about the same dates through the year, and many calculations, like interest, dates of maturing notes, Easter and many other important dates, would b3 sim plified. Although the present genera tion would have to figure new dates for birthdays, and ail loeal holidays ex cept New Year would be on different dates yet the ga;n would ba more than tee less, as that wouiu oa perma nent and the objactions trilling. The factory season at Eddy has closed and the results are summed up about this way: A few thousand pounds of seeds were sown, 14,000 tons cf beets were harvested. Twelve or fourteen hundred acres were planted, whien cost about $22 per acre to do the work neceisary to harvest them. They brought an average of $4.59 per ton, hence about S'io.000 was paid to the farmers of the valley for beets aloce, no mean amount for these hard times. The factory shipped 130 carloads of sugar. It has a capacity of 200 tons a a day and can supply 70,000 people with sugar. Figuring on this basis it would appear that the farmers who grew beets netted about $23 per acre, a very fair return indeed. Texas should grow sugar beets. Pecos Val lev Times. A Jewish rabbi preached from the pulpit of a Presbyterian church in Buffalo last Sunday and the very worst that came of it, according to a local chronicle, was that the address bad the effect of removing some of the prejudice existing against the Hebrew race aod of enlightening some of the members of the Presbyterian congre gation as to the real ideas and prin ciples of the Hebrew faith as now tauht. The more people of a differ ent faith know of each other the better they understand each other, the more broad minded and tolerant they be come and the quicker norrowness and bigotry give place to charity and cotholicity. Prejudice is not merely a twin brother, it is the very essence and echo of ignorance. Express. The Madrid Heraldo, referring to the possible action of the United States for the relief of Americans in Cuba, sys: 'Tne Spanish government will have universal opinion on its side if it acts with energy in repelling American interference in our affairs, hut this opinion will be hostile unless the gov ernment ceases muking concessions. Thesn displays of weakness, if they do not increase the uithculty of solving the question, certainly do not improve the situation in Cuba."
