A Singular Coincidence.
One Sunday afternoon in the summer
of 1SS1> Mrs. K., a northern woman,
said to her husband: "I don't know
why it is, but all the afternoon I have
been thinking of our old friend. Kinma,
in Natchez. Miss. We have not
heard from her for several years. I believe
that I will write to her." She did
so. The letter was mailed that evening.
It would reach Natchez on the
next Tuesday. On Tuesday morning
Mrs. K. received a letter from Km ma,
dated Sunday afternoon, commencing:
"AT-., -loor \frc:- K-- T (lon't kllOW wllV it
is, but I have been thinking of you aii
the afternoon and concluded that I
would write to you. It has been several
years since I have heard from
you." TIence these two ladies, one in
the far south, the other in central Illinois,
were thinking of each other, writing
in almost the same language and
evidently at the same moment.
"Where- It In Always Leap Vear.
In one part of "all the Kussias/* the
province of Ukraine, it is always leap
year as far as the female privilege of
proposing is ecncernetl. It is said to
be customary there when a young woman
falls, in love with a man for her
to go.to his father's house and in the
most tender and pathetic manner plead
with the young man to take her as his
wife. She promises the most submissive
obedience to iiis will if he will but
accept her. If the yc%ung mail says.
I beg that ybu will excuse me from
this," she tells him that she is resolved
not to depart until he shall promise to
take her for better or worse. She accordingly
takes up her abode there and
remains until he is wooed and won or
until he ends the- siege by fleeing to
parts unknown.

A recent historian suggests a reason
why tlie flute is not popular with ladies.
"Minerva in ancient Greece." he
says, "began to play the flute, thinking
it such a beautiful instrument she

Perhaps the feelings of the fair sex toward

by a similar consideration.**

j The word California was first used :
| in a work on Spanfsh chivalry pub- :
| lislied in 1510. This work was an alleged
history of the adventures of
"Amhdis of Gaul aiul his son Ksplnniliam."
It was of great length and di- I
rided into a great number of short stories.
one of which was the manner in
i which "Calkin, the queen of the Island
} of California, a country inhabited only
by women, who lived as amazons and
had gold without end." saved Constantinople
from an attack by the Persians.
This story as well as others was widely

William Archer in tlie Fortnightly
I Review, tells an amusing story of tlie
I economy practiced and necessary- in
! tlie early days of the Norwegian then!
ter at Bergen. It was in 1S-U1, when
I Ibsen and Bjornson were creating the
j national drama. A lady had been enj
gaged for tlie part of "second old woi
man" wlien it was discovered that her
i elocutionary powers were impaired by
! the fact that she had lost one of her
j front teeth. Impoverished as she was,
j the management came to tlie rescue
' and bore tlie expense of tlie necessary
j dentistry. Wlien slie retired, however,
! after two seasons, she bad to leave the
j tooth behind her, the example of the
| dentist's art being the property of the
I theater. The management was too
: poor to part with it!
Tlie Eye of a Pianist.
A pianist has to cultivate -the eye so
| as to see l.ilOO signs in one minute, the
; lingers to make 2,uuu movements xtm*
j the brain to understand all these signs
| as well as direct all these movements.
' In playing Weber's "Moto Perpetuo"
i a pianist has to read 4,541 notes in less
j than four minutes, or about nineteen
| a second, but the eye can receive only
j about ten consecutive impressions a
; second, so that in quick music it seems
i that a player does not see every note
singly, but in groups, probably a bar
i or more at one view.

CLEVELAND. O., June 1?.?The report
of the special committee elected
by the Cleveland Civic Federation to
investigate the deadlock existing between
the Lake Carriers* Association
and the American Association of Mastors*
and Pilots* lias been submitted.
It is an interesting document of some
5.000 words. It reviews some of the
inside history of the trouble, and
closes l?y saying that the committee
was powerless to adjust the difficulties.
The committee found the Lake Carriers*
Association and Id asters' and
Pilots* Association disagreed over the
question of wage scale.
That the Lake Carriers refuse to
deal with any organization composed
of masters and mates, but will carry
on negotiations with the masters and
mates in separate associations. That
the Masters* and Pilots' Association
refuse to disrupt. That growing out
of the change which has been going
011 resulting: in the passing of the ownership
of vessels from -private to corporate
hands, abuses have crept in of
which the masters and mates have
reasonable grounds to'complain.
That many oil those grievances
would be corrected by the present
management, of the vessels.
That all the efforts which the committee
could by any possibility pt?t
forth to settle the differences are foredoomed
to failure.
Therefore, the special committee of
the Cleveland Civic Federation asks
to be discharged.
Delegates to the convention of the
American Medical Association are dis
cussing a remarkable announcemen:
made yesterday by Professor Winfield
Avers, of the Post Graduate Hospital.
of New York, who said that he
made experiments which lead him to
the belief that Bright's disease Is
curable in its earlier stages, and that
further investigation will result in a
complete victory over the disease.
Professor Ayers bases his conclusions
on ninety-three cases, forty-three of
which are tabulated. Of them nine
were cured entirely. ,
Twenty-five cases showed marked ,
.improvement, and only one failed to
respond to treatment. Professor
Ayers* treatment is simple. Heretofore
all treatments have been by the
use of medicine taken through.; the
mouth, and It has been found impossible
to send through the blood drugs
strong enough to kill the germs of the
disease. Through the use of an instrument
Professor Ayers injects the
medicines directly into the kidneys
!ii such strength as would be fatal
if taken in the blood.
i.'uder the method described by Dr.
Ayers a catheter is introduced directly
into the kidneys without making
an incision or using the knife at all.
To do this an instrument known as
the Cystoscope, introduced into the
bladder, which is then lighted up by
an electric light attached to the instrument,
by by this guidance a long '
catheter is inserted. The medicines '
are then forced into the kidneys.
The drugs used are those in ordinary ;
use among surgeons as anti-septics, 1
and are in sufficient strength to de- '
stroy. the disease germs.
Pennsylvania Taxes.
(Washington Reporter.)
It is not such a bad showing after
all for the State of Pennsylvania to
have in the State treasury over $12,000,000,
This, it is to- be remembered. ;
is under the rule of the Republican
party. Texas, on the other hand, un- ,
der the absolute control of the Democrats
has, according to newspaper accounts
a deficit of about $1,000,000.

li Is rough work that Mimroe expects
when he meets Jeffries in the
ring. Inn he is giving no little 'atten- Y'
tion to fast work, side-stepping and .
jabbing. In fact, he will be ready for ; v ;
any emergency when 'he faces the I
champion in the ring. "Muriroe never ?.?:

"Jeffries has never put any of ids

Not since he became champion has .. /.g.djjsjiS
Jeffries been so quietly stored away ,'rg
in the woods at Harbin Springs as
he is at the present time. Up in the
mountains, where visitors are scarccand
the roads are free from obstacles,

none of the members of his camp
can stand the pace. Five miles at an . i-i
ordinary pace is enough for big Joe ^
Kennedy, and Jack Jeffries calls a ajB

Invariably Jeffries takes his pet
