Let the boys fgirta remember that never Jhoy lind on (!1irth a friona mother. iristmas greens are on deck, ' l'Jstmas advertisement- When the time comes for a now king of England the College of Arms will proclaim him just as they have proclaimed every monarch for hundreds of years past. Times change and dynas ties. We are loss like the Eng lishmen of Edward I, than we are like the1 modern Japs. Wo talk a different tongue, wo oat differ ent foods, we "wear different clothes, wo think different thoughts. Nothing is the same except the columns on Stone hongo and the College! of Arms. The college abides, varying by not so much as a detail of proced ure or a button on a uniform. What is, is good and cannot be improved. Therefore, the busi ness of proclamation will be the same in the twentieth century as it was in the fifteenth. Wheu the time unhappily comes for a new king to reign the privy council will meet and de clare the throne to have devolved on the Prince of Wales. Orders will at once be given to the earl marshal and the officers of the College of Arms to proclaim him. The first proclamation will be made in the courtyard of St. James' palace where the guard is changed. Garter King, the chief officer of the college, will make the proclamation in solemn form, with the earl marsal, the knights, the herald aud the pursuivants in full uniform and mounted hard by. At this proclamation the monarch is present, sitting at the window whore all his predecess ors have sat. This is the ehiofest of the proc lamations, but the news has to be carried far and wide to the dis tant cities, the rauk of the pro claiming officer descending as the business proceeds. The second pronouncement is made at Char ing Cross, and the third at the corner of Chancery lane. At this proclamation there will be a modification of the ancient form, owing to the disappearance of Temple Bar. Within the city of London the lord mayor and sheriffs preserve their ancient sovereignty, aud allow no ruler within their gates except after permission has boon asked and granted. The old form was for the junior pursuivant to raj) at the gtite and show his warrant for proclamation. Thou the lord mayor ordered the gates to be opened, and joined in the stately procession. The ceremony will doubtless remain, barring the knock at the gate, which does not exist. In the provinces the proc lamations are made by the local mayors. Being proclaimed and crowned the king has to otter to fight for his throne. In the olden times, when a king reigned by the iower of his right arm, this was a nec essary formality, and because it was necessary once it is done still. But the king no longer does his own fighting, He has a champion the hereditary cham pion of England, whose duty it is to do battle with all comers for the crown. The champion is al ways a member of the Dymoko family. When the king is crown ed this champion rides into West minister hall, mounted and in full armor, just as the champion was 000 years ago. He is accompani ed by the earl marshal and the lord groat chamberlain, also on horseback. The hall is crowded with ticketed sight seers. A proclamation is road by one of the heralds, challeugiuganybody who disputes the right of the sover eign to combat in an open space. The champion throws down his gauntlet as a guarantee of good faith, and then the hearts of all tho ladies flutter in anticipation of a fight. But it is all a disap pointing sham. If some euter nrising person were to take up the challenge aud tho guautlet he would probably bo run in by the police for creating a disturb ance. The herald takes up the glove and hands it back fo tho champion, and then the king is firmly seated onhisthroue. Lon don Mail. Little Charles Sister told mamma yesterday you was born to bo a politician. Mr. Skimpley A iH)liticiau? I wonder why she thinks so. , Little Charles She says you can do so much talkin without committin yourself. Prisoners in the penitentiary are about the only ones that live up to their convictions. THE UNSANITARY DOLLAR. "WHAT IS A FRIEND." Tho selfishness of mankind, as well ascovetousness aud cupidity bliuds the average pursuer of the almighty dollar to its unsanitary condition. Ho is heedless of the death dealing microbes which swarm and gambol over the en graving, and is interested ouly in its face value and purchasing power. Not one man in a thousand can say, without reference or hesita tion, whether tho dollar bill boars the likeness of Abraham Lincoln, Bonjamiu Frankliu or Thomas Jefferson. Fewer can recall the portraits and historic scones en graved upon bills of a higher de nomination. Nobody ever thinks of refusing currency because its artistic features have boon blur red or blotted by hard usage. And nobody was over known to refuse a bill because it had not been recently fumigated, washed, starched and ironed. Neither the banks, their patrons nor the masses of the people are able, in these busy times, to hold piipor currency long enough to subject it to microscopic examination, or to chase the bacteria off its face or back. Tho man who cannot be induced to touch a soiled or in fectious article of any other kind will jam a roll of diseaso-breediug bills into his ockot aud look pleasan t, cou ten tod and con fiden t. Dirty dollars are legal tender, and tho person who refuses to ac cept them in payments of debts, public or private, subjects him self to considerable legal annoy ance and monetary inconvenience. The man who is seeking a loan at the bank is troubled more about iiis chances of getting it than a bout tho bacteria he may receive with it. And, per contra, the bank is more particular about the repay aiont of the loan when due than it is regarding the microbes which may accompany it. Such is the degenerating and demoral izing influence of tho money pow er that even the most fanatical of bacteriologists will run tho risk of contracting disease of the most aggravating form rather than re fuse the currency which is offer ed him, even if ho is certain in his own mind that it is infected. THE EXPERT BUTCHER. It is his business, of course, and he becomes export at it, as any man might in any work, but tho customer who pays any at tention to it at all is sure to be in terested nevertheless in tho ac curacy with which the butcher cuts off just the required amount of meat. Whether it is two pounds of steak, or four pounds of chops, or six pounds of corned beef, it's all the. same to him. He cuts without long dwelling uxn where to set the knife. Ho slices away sort of causaliko and plies the saw and lays the meat on tho scales, and it does not weigh more than a quarter or a half M)und from the weight re- Lquired on eventhehoaviostpiecos, and pu the lighter piece ho comes within an ounce or two, hits it right on the nail. A man, for instance, goes into a butcher shop and asks for three and a half or four pounds .of, say, corned boof. The butch er gets a big piece out of tho pickle, expeditiously Jays it on a block and picks up a knife, and, without tho slightest hesitation, with one strong, smooth sweep cuts off a piece, which he lays on the scales. It weighs three pounds aud threo-quarters. It is in weight exactly m id way be tween the limits set. Tho expert butcher gets his ability to do this, naturally enough, from good judgment, to start with, backed np by long ex perience, but when he cuts things as close as this jven the custom er familiar with his skill looks, upon him as a wizard. Now York Sun. . Didn't Object to His Creed. The English language remind mo of some of these typewriters and the game of whist. It looks mighty simple, but tho further you go aloug the more complicat ed aud swear provoking it is. Wo have all heard of tho man who told his sweetheart that before marrying her ho must confess that ho was a somnambulist. "Oh, I don't mind that," said the dear, sweet girl, "wo are Presbyterians ourselvos, but wo are not a bit narrow." The following definitions were given in answer to the above question, jiropouuded by a well known writer for the press: The sunshine of calamity. The essence of pure devotion. The ripe fruit of acquaintance ship. One who understands our si lence. Friendship, ouo soul in two bodies. A star of hope in the cloud of adversity. A volume of sympathy bound in cloth. A diamond in the ring of ac quaintance. A safe in which one can trust anything. Friendship is the ersonittca tioti of love aud help. Tho jewel which shines bright est in the darkness. One who considers my needs before my deservings. The link in life's long chain which bears tho greatest strain. A harbor of refuge from the stormy waves of adversity. The first iorson who comes in wheu tho whole world has gouo out. One who loves tho truth aud you, and will toll the truth in spite of you. One who multiplies joys, di vides griefs, aud whose honesty is inviolable. The triple alliance of the three groat iowors love, sympathy and help. A jewel whose lustre the strong acids of poverty and acids can not dim. The imago of one's self reflect ed in the mirror of mutual esteem aud affection. One who, having gaiued tho top of the ladder, won't forget you if you remain at the bottom. A bank of credit on w Inch we can draw supplies of confidence, counsel, sympathy, help and love. One who smiles in our misfor tunes, frowns on our faults, sym pathizes with our sorrows, weeps at our bereavements, aud is a safe fortress at all times of trou ble. - One who, in prosperity does not toady you, in adversity as sists you, in sickness nurses you, and after your death marries your widow and provides for your children. DIFFERENCE IN BOOTBLACKS. "Did you ever notice thc-differ-euce between tho darkey and Ital ian bootblacks?" said a manabout town to a Chicago Inter-Ocean re porter. "I say darkies and Ital ians because most of the 'shining' in Chicago is done by one or the other. Tho darkies do the work in barber shops and shoe stores and the Italians run most of tho "parlors." "Now, you watch a darkey, and if he's alone he '11 talk to his cus tomer. If there's two of them they'll chatter together like mag pies. And tho darkey is so full of music and dance that he's got to put them into his work. He'll put in all sortsof fantastic motions and beat out a rudo kind of time, as if he were picking a banjo or cutting a pigeonwing. When he brushes you he'll beat you with tho whisp broom in the same way. "Ho iuto one of the Italian 'par lors' and it's as still as a grave. There may be a dozen bootblacks but not one of them will speak to you or to a comianion. They do their work steadily and rapidly, but its work, and nothing else. Same way with their brushing you. It's as different as a watch service from a cake walk." Few persons are probably now aware that while this country does not have a iostal savings bank system, under the money order system money can be do lK)sited in a iostoftioe and an or der secured payable at tho same office. That change makes the postoftices available for savings banks, with tho exception that they do not pay interest. An infant child of Samuel Hart man, one and a half miles west of Waynesboro, died Tuesday morn ing of last week, aged about one year and six months, from the effects of poison contracted by swallowing tobacco about three weeks ago. Modern bxks, however rapidly they may deteriorate from other causes, are protected from book worms by the chemicals used in paper making. THE MAKIMJ OF SLATE PEN. CILS. A slate ioucil is a very simple j affair, and ono would scarcely i imagine the process of its manu-1 facture complicated. Yes, like i mauy other simple devices in con stant use, it is the result of much thought aud care, aud a product of complicated machiuery. First, broken pieces of slate are put into a mortar run by steam, and crushed iuto a powder, which is then bolted in a machine such as is used in flour mills. A fine slate flour results, which is thor oughly mixed in a large tub with steatio flour and other materials, ! the whole making a stiff el ugh. I The dough is kueadod by being passed between iron rollers a couple of times, aud is them taken to a table, where it is made into short cylinder four or five inches thick, each containing from eight to ten pounds of material. Four of these cylinders are placed in a strong iron retort which litis a changeable nozzle, regulating the size (if the pencils. In the retort the material is subjected to great hydraulic pres sure, and is thus pushed through tho nozzle in the shape' ef a long erord. As this cord comes through it passes ever a knife which cuts it into the elesireil lengths. These are laid on boards t elry, and are then placed em sheets ef corrug ated zinc. The corrugation pre vents tho pe'ucils from warping during tho baking prewoss. The baking is done in a kilu, which is furnished with pipe's filled with superheated steam. The pencils go from the kilu to the finishing roeim, where the ends are ne'atly peinte'd by being hold for an in stant under a rapidly revolving emery wheel, aud then to the packiug rexnn.
