nriTiAL op famous meit.
CwtoM Fcti Prwwited iy a Iritis 4friflifcil DIctlMtry. Taking the "Dictionary of Nation pi Biography" standard, it is clear that there is something in & name. No man in the British Isles has become famous for ten centuries whose name began with X. Z is better there are 21 names under it and Q is better still, with 31. Somebody in the Z'a becomes famous on an average every ou years, and Q has been the initial on one in every thousand of England's famous men. A is much better than either there is a famous man among the A's for nearly every year since William the Conqueror and those R-hoie names begin with C, H, M or B should be quite hopeful; their chance is very good indeed. But the chance of the man whose name com mences with B is the best of all. There are over 3,000 famous names in our history beginning with B, and the seekers after fame in this class should keep up heart. St. James Gazette. CwiMU Street Pavemeata. Paris, we are told, is to be paved with glass, and tnis has been referred to as if glass streets were at present unknown. It is, however, not so. Everybody who has been to Lyons knows the Hue delaBepublique, with its glass pavements laid in blocks eight inches square, so closely fitted tlrat water.cannot pass through them. 5ut streets oi glass are not by any means the most curious streets in the world. There is a street in. Gwandu, Africa, which is a veritable place of skulls. The town, oval in shape, has round it a ring of poles, every one of which js crowned with a human skull. There are six gates to the town, and; every one of them is approached by a pavement of skulls, of which some thing like 12,000 were used. The pavement is snowy white. Philadel phia has a street made with com pressed grass, and the experiment prosiiaed so well after a year that there may be many companion etreata oi r4s by this time. Ulr? WUE. Wi letUfti Two Muired Years Ala- Sat ftctly Discovered. Jeaann Maerkel, a ruddy-faced, good-natured German wine merchant of Chicago, said at the Arlington in Washington the other day to a "Wash ington Star writer: '1 have just returned from a visit to my brothers in Homburg, Ger many, and- Jiave brought with me a treasure in the way of a bottle of aged wine. A few months since my broth . era, who are also wine dealers, were excavating some additional vaults at their place of business in Homburg. The workmen came across a small stone cellar or cache and inclosed in it discovered five dozen bottles of wine which the rude makelrf bottlers well as the lattel, shows to be over 200 years old. A dozen bottles of it were pre sented to the kaiser, a, dozen to King Edward then the prince of Wales and the balance, save three, were disposed of at fabulous prices to vari ous royal families of Europe. Of the remaining three one was given to me." Here Mr. Maexkel took from a wooden box, carefully packed in cotton bat ting, a roughly made, dark-colored bottle, tightly sealed with a primitive label and about four-fifths full of a wine which when held to the light, despite the color of the botfle, showed a beautiful purplish tint. It was port of the vintage of 1697. "You can easily see by the label and the -rude make of the bottle that my statement as to its age is authoritative. Of course, I shall not open the bottle, al though it would please me much to let you taste the spirit of the grape which grew on German hillsides 200 years ago. I shall hfive the bottle nice ly inclosed in a glajs cabinet and pre serve it for the cmio which it cer tainly is."
