VL'm 4-J from New York Is under arrest here, of jharged with swindling the Metropolitan of certain fao. , many being the re suits of superstition, religions observ ancea and the desire to be "up to date.' We are acquainted with what facility hair may he fashioned into various fan tastio shapes for personal adornment, and when a part through the middle is de creed it ia worn without regard to con tonr, and whether it may add to or de tract from one's intellectual appearance no thought is given. If fashion-says crimp, we crimp; if curl and wave, we obey. And the cus torn of keeping the head closely shaved prevails, as among the Fijian women, while the men cultivate long hair, thus reversing tbe conditions met with among highly civilized nations. The lips, ears and nose offer a variety of possible alterations and are a means of ornamental display, and, says Cap tain Cook, over a hundred years ago, in describing tbe naked savages on the east coast of Australia, their principal form of ornamentation was a bone, which they thrust through' the cartilage which divides the nostrils .from , each other. Tbe lip ornamentations by the Bolocndo Indians and tbe Tlinket Bella are dis gristing in the extreme, and in the heart of Africa among the Bongo women a clamp or clasp is worn at ihe corners of the month, as if they wanted to contract the orifico and literally put a curb on its possibilities. The teeth cannot escape, and tbe Ma lays view in disgust the natural tint and stain theirs a jet black. One views in horror the Chinese meth od of foot binding, but which is much mitigated when considering by degrees the fashionable toe used in tbe last cen tury. Thus we can see that fashion's fetters torture and harass equally civilized men and savage vanity. Are we not the same in; kind, but differing, only In degree from tho savage? New York Adver tiser. Xdnaaad Hal ley. , Probably the greatest service which Hal ley ever rendered to human knowl edge was the share which he took in bringing Newton's "Principal" before the world. In fact, as Dr. Glaisher, writ ing in 1888, has truly remarked, "but for Halley the 'Principia' would not have existed." Halley had the genius to perceive the tremendous importance of Newton's re searches, and he ceased not to urge upon the somewhat recluse man of science tbe necessity for giving his discoveries pub lication. Having been authorized by the Royal society to undertake the printing ot the book at his own expense, Halley spared no pains in pushing forward the publication of his illustrious friend's great work, so much so that in the same year he was in a position to present a complete copy t0 King James II, with a proper discourse of his own. Halley also wrote a set of Latin hexameters, in praise of Newton's genius, which he printed at the beginning of the work. The last line of this specimen ot Hal ley's poetic muse maybe thus rendered, "Nor mortals nearer in ay approach the gods." Sir Robert Ball in Good Words. Tha Qaeew of Itappineea.

There coulu be no doubt about lt Lady Biggoto was a very much ill used woman. Perhaps she should never have been so foolish as to marry Sir John Biggeto. It ought to have been obvious to her that the baronet was only wooing her money, and that, this being the case, there was no reasonablQ prospect of married happiness between them But wherever the original mistake lay every ounce of subsequent blame at tached to Sir John, who, even if he were unable to love his elderly and commonplace spouse, had, at any rate, no excuso for neglecting her so shame fully as be did. Why, be was always way from home by himself. The number of business appointments that he' had Jn London and elsewhere were legion. When his wife pressed him for details and particulars, be invariably grew evasive. When she offered to ac company him, he emphatically declined to take her. lie had abandoned the jour neys altogether. Of course this spoke for Itself. It pointed to a disgraceful conclusion So said Lady Biggeto. So said Lady Biggeto's friends, and so in deed said all right minded persons who were apprised of it. What made it worse in Sir John Big geto was that he was by way of being one of the elect. It was in this charac ter that he had wooed and won his wife relict of a Croydon alderman and fel low worshiper with the baronet at tbe church of Trinity in the Marshes. Trinity-in-tbe-Martihes was served by that evangelical light, the Rev. Mat thew Madder. It was the more scandalous, therefore, that Sir John, a member of Matthew Madder's flock, should be behaving as he was in his private life. His spouse had serions thoughts of applying to Matthew Madder himself and request ing tbe fiery servant of the Lord to tac kle her recreant husband... Some years ago she had adopted these tactics in ref erence to her nephew Tom, ber only sis ter's child, who had fallen away into flagitious paths. But Lady Biggeto hesitated at pres ent to invoke Matthew Madder's assist ance in reconverting her husband. There were Beveral reasons why she hesitated. One was that, having boasted not a lit tle of Sir John's devotion to her before her marriage, she was now naturally loath to acknowledge the complete fail- j of. UfiTjBKwctations afterward. An- Washington. JsnNfhe was still without senate committoo ouSinfidelity, and that J.'.i4ieTr7f these before making any decideolniove. And wu fi,.. t.u,i n;f 'r:rJti. ' " " .-"c? n-usujiu ouu tuuiioiu, nil uuvr 1U a fair way to achieve the fondest wish of her heart namely, be presented at court. Any public scandal, and when a scandal passed into Madder's charge it did not remain private, was, from this point of view, to be stroi gly deprecated. The only person therefore whom she took into her confidence for the discov ery of Sir John's iniquities was her nephew Tom. The young man under took to keep a close watch upon Sir John Biggeto and report to his aunt all that he might hear and see. It was about a fortnight before Tom was able to make any definite report. At the end of that time he called one day at his aunt's with a very meaning and important look upon his face. Lady Biggeto saw at a glance that he had made some great dis covery. "Well, Tom, what is it you have to tell me?" she inquired rather nervously. "Are my worst fears realized!" "They are," said Tom, with a grave nod of his head. "The very worst." "What? Is there have you" began Lady Biggeto, with some excitement "Has he" "There is a lady in the case," said Tom, with a solemn expression. ' "Ah I I was sure of it I Who is she?" demanded Lady Biggeto. 'She goes by the name of Mary Jones," replied Tom. "It appears that Sir John has been constantly with her for more than a year pa6t Sho" "What sort of a person is she? Old or young ?' ' interru pted his aunt agi tatedly. "loung quite young, aunt " "And how far has this intrigue gone? Tell me all Hide nothing from mel" exclaimed his aunt, now in a great state of excitement and rage. "The intrigue has gone to a shocking to a shameful extent," said Tom in a mournful voice. "Sir John has evident ly been spending a lot of your money, aunt, upon her. He" "The the brute I The hussy I" she cried, turning from red to white. "Go on, Tom, go on." He has, in fact, been um-er keeping up. an an establishment for her," continued Tom, lowering his TOice in evident shame at mentioning inch a thing, "and a smart and costly establishment it is. 'Dear, dear aunt, I am sorry, indeed, sorry and sad to tell , you this. I have ascertained, " continued Tom, "that Sir John is going down into the country into Yorkshire, in fact next week with this Mary Jones. Now, if yon and. Mr. .Madder could follow them" I will I As I am an outraged wife. I will!" cried his aunt suddenly and With niofit vehement determination. "And it seems to me," pursued Tom, with a knowing nod, "that if yon could actually confront them at the entertain ment, and if Mr. Madder could then and there administer a public rebuke to tbe sinners, it would er meet tbe er requhements of the case' as nothing else would. What do you think, aunt?" It shall be done," assented Lady Biggeto, firmly pursing up ber mouth. 'It shall be done. Sir John shall be put to public penance in this worid in order to save his immortal soul from ever lasting penance) in the next. Yon crn find out exactly where they are going. Tom." On the afternoon preceding tbe fate ful day the three Lady Biggeto, Mat thew Madder and Tom proceeded to Hifheit of an b LcATening 1 fvV Tt; Efll Doncaster by an afternoon mail. Of course her ladyship bore all 'the ex penoso! the expedition.. She treated her guest handwmely at the X. hotel. Chosen vessels as they were, neither Madder nor Tom was (stomachically) an ascetic. They did justice to the good things set before them Was there not apoHtolic authority for thin indulgence? Shortly afternoon on the morrow they drove out to the fainoui race course. Lady Biggeto was lookiug pale, but de termined and revengeful. Tom was looking pleased almost exultant la Matthow Madder's countenance shone the firo of godly indigation, as he glanced around him at the noisy, wicked crowds or the nurr generate, all converg ing to tbe Yorkshire pandemonium. Jn very truth it was a gathering of the sons of FeJial. Now, Tom was the only cne of the party who knew anything abont race meetings When he was a child of wrath, he bad frequency attended inch. So it was to Tom that Madder and Lady Big- gero naa to look for advice regarding their movements when they reached the course. Tom's advice, "which they agreed to adopt, was this : "Tho best thing. to do." said the young man decidedly, "i to lie quietly by until just before the race for the St. Leger. At that time about half an hour before the race, in fact Sir John, with Mary Jones and other wicked friends, is certain to roll round lo the paddock to have a look at the St Leger candidates. Then will be our time, sir. Confront him then, with my aunt at your side. Denounce him boldly. Put him to open sbsme before alL And spare not Mary Jones either. For she is quite as much to blame as my uncle. It is through her wiles and allurements that Sir John has fallen." "Trust me. I will not spare this scar let woman," said Madder. There was a large crowd, but they managed to thread their way through them and to stand in a convenient spot near the entrance. At last Tom's Bharp eyes detected Sir John approaching. lie was conversing gaylywith a smartly dressed girl, on the other side of whom walked a rak ish looking man, wearing a white top per and with fieldgbts.'es slung aero his shoulder. "Is that that painted creature Mary Jones?" asked Lady Biggeto venom ously. "Yes," said Tom, "and t'other f el low walking with them is a gambling pal of Sir John's one of the wcrsr characters in Europe. Now. sir. is your time." Sir John and his two friends bed come quite close. They were about to on entire ddock when Matthew Mad r.iwrr no: k winr uisrceto a arm through his own, stepped forward and i i. i . t confronted the reprobates. At the sight of his wife Sir John started and looked confused. However, in a second, with a brazen equanimity characteristic of the man, he recovered himself and aaid.rnth er sarcastically : "Lady Biggeto This is an unexpect ed pleasure. " "very unexpected 1 she retorted. with a bitter little laugh Then was Matthew Madder's oppor tunity. He fixed Sir John with a truly scorching stare. "Man of sin," he exclaimed, "I am come to denounce yon in tbe name of tbe Lord 1" . The baronet stared at him iu blank amazement "Ah!" pursued Madder, in terrible tones. "Yon may well hold your peace. You may well be dumfounded. . Long enough have you and your vile com pan Ion in sin pursued the damnable path of worldly pleasure. Here, in the name of my master, I denounce yon both. Yon, unfaithful husband, runner after strange women, and you" (turning to the astonished lady), "child of frailty, jade, huss" Matthew Madder never completed that last obnoxious word. The roan in tbe white topper, not fully grarping the tit nation, but realizing that his wife was being ontragously insulted by some apparontly drunken fanatio, clinched his fist, smote the servant of the Lord be tween tbe eyes and laid him even with tbe dnst "Yon foul mouthed black guard," said be of the white) topper menacingly, "apologize at once to tbe Countess of P., or I'll break every bone in yonr body. ' "The Countess of P. I" ejaculated La dy Biggeto, turning pale. "The Count ess of P. 1" "Who else? Good God t I should have thought that the countess was pretty well known at Doncaster," retorted the earl with great irritation. "Then then w-w-where ia M-M- Mary Jones? They t-t-t old me yon had gone to Doncaster with M-Mary Jones I" gapped Lady Biggeto to Sir John. Her face had now become positively gray, and she looked as though she were on the point of fainting. Sir John started. A light broke on him. Then a smile a very grim, un pleasant smile of triumph overspread his couutemvnee He gripped his wife by the arm and turned her around so as to face tbe paddock. A smart looking I-filly was at that moment being led out "There is Mary Jones," said the bar onet, his grin expanding. "If you wait a little longer, yon will very likely see her win tbe St Leger 1" Lady Biggeto was not presented at the next drawing room, and Tom, her nephew, no longer sits uuder Matthew Madder. . He feels that be has now dis charged to the full all of hisobligatious in that quarter. Loudon Truth Poverty is very terrible, and some times kills the very scul within us, but lt is the north wind that lathe men into vikings; it is the soft, luscious south wind which lulls them to lotus dreams. Ouida. There is a false modesty, which Is vanity; a false glory, which is levity; a false grandeur, which Is meanness; a false virtue, which Is hypocrisy, and a false wisdom, which Is prudery.

Special. 1 Wbar would yon say to a new triple alll snoe, an alliance between ths United States, Great Britain and Russia? A raeiaa.ting Study. . At first glanoe such an alliance might seem chlmerloal, too absurd to be worthy of serious thought, and yet not more strange or more startling than some of the movea which have been made upon tba eheasboard of international diplomacy dur ing the past few weeks. International di plomacy, statecraft in Its' largcwt and most comprehensive term, is the moat fascinat ing study one can conceive of. We know something about politics on a small scale In this country. We get pretty well wrought up once In every four years. Wo think our politicians and our party man agers are as shrewd, as adroit and at times, I regret to say, as unscrupulous as men well ean be. But all that ia child's play to what sroes on day after day In tha capitals of Europe. There mon play for stakes compared to which our campaigns are as innocent as a church fair to Monte Carlo. Here a change of administration means much, but after alL it does not de stroy maps or alter tbe history of tha world for generations to come. There poli tics meant tbe rise an fall of empires. tha marking of the boundary lines of states In trails of blood. There are in this city at tbe present time few members of the diplomatic corns who are as conversant with the Inner af faire of the capitals of Europe as they are with tbe affairs of their own well regulat ed households. They know what sous on In London. Paris. Berlin. Vienna. St. Petersburg or Constantinople. When an emperor make a speech at a dinner of a hussar regiment or a prime minister re plies to a delegation, or a potentate snubs one embassador and Is all smiles to an other, the people wonder and the press of three or four continents sneculates. These men in Washington smile or look glum as things are going their way or against them. Tbey understand who Is pulling the strings and wby the strings are being pulled. Merely Hinted. In this Inner diplomatic circle a curious toplo Is constantly lxing whispered, be cause lt Is hinted at rather than being talked about at this time. It is no leas than an alliance between the United States, Great Britain and Russia. A year ago such an alliance would have been scouted as an otter Impossibility; it would have been regarded aa Improbable as Ger- . many and France anting in concert Yet only a few abort months ago all the world stood amazed to see the two nat ions who so burtriyuta orxnuiti t.ViL ' r - In restraining Japan from Inflicting" too severe a blow upon bor vanquished enemy, and with tbem was Ru!a, while Eng land, onoe air powerful in the far east, was pushed contemptuously to one side. Still later Franoe, Germany and Russia "financed" China, and England was not even asked to take part in the arrange ment.' Not long ago Russia, always our friend, offered this country all tbe gold we might need In exchange for onr bonds, England and Russia have been enemies from time Immemorial. England has so "bottled up" Russia that for five months In the year her ships of-war He in an ioe frocen harbor, as useless for purposes of war as if they were stripped of their guns and engines. For years .she has been try ing to obtain control of a port on tho Med iterranean where ber ships could come and go as they pleased and be Independent of the seasons, but every attempt has been met by the threatening frown of England. IMrlslon of A polls. There has recently been great chance in England. Some of her wisest statesmen believe thai Ilusfcla should bo her ally and not ber traditional enemy. It is curious to note that the average Englishman regards the Frenchman with supreme contempt and the German ho looks upon as a slow going follow who doosn t amount to much, but be has rather an admiration for the Russian, possibly bocnuso lie knows noth ing about him. The English statesmen of tbe new school real ire the folly of attempt ing to keep Russia bntt led up." They advocate letting her have Constantinople If she wants it, of giving her the same rights and privileges accorded to any other great nation. In rutnrn England would get Egypt, France could do nothing, and Germany would be powerless. But still greater advantages would follow. China Is like a ripe plum waiting to be plucked. Who shall do the plucking? Russia, han kers after the fruit, she is willing to divide lt with England, but above all, she wants the United States to come in and share the spoils. aturally the United States ought to enjoy the most intimate commercial and financial relations with the treat empire of the east. New York ought to be the center of the China trade Instead ot Lon don. Russian diplomats have long sought to Impress this upon our state department but we have disregarded the advice as be ing opposed to our tradltlonnl policy. Slnoe the war, when our ministers to China and Japan did more to bring about peace than all the other diplomats put to gether, which tremendously raised our prestige, some of our shrewdest men of affairs have bad their eyes opened to the great possibilities to follow from a com mercial Invasion of China. But that in vasion cannot be solely commercial. It must in a measure bn political. Our In fluence must be felt as a dominant tower. It must be known that 1'ke England and Russia, we exerrlso some control In the political affairs of the country which only needs the touch of western civilization to astonish the world. Russia is slncrrcly anxious that we shall join with ber In throwing down the Chinese wall. Iler affection for England la a purely selfish cue, but diplomacy is not founded uikiu sentiment. With England, Russia and tbe United States standing shoulder to shoulder no other nation dare raise a hand. It would be such an alliance In money, In men, In brains, aa the world has never be fore seen. As yet no American statesman bu dared to publicly propose such a radical depar ture from our traditional policy. And yet there are men of the first rank who any that the time has come when this country must eeae to lie politically Isolated from the rest rf tbe world. I do net know whether, such an alliance will ever h brought about or, If so, whether It will be In this generation, but that It has been discussed In Washington, aa well as In the foreign ofiiooa of Indon and St. lVters burg, I hare absolute authority for saying.
