Diplomat it* Permanency.
It Is iikely to 1k> the ease In America
that ns time goes on and our relations
with foreign powers become more and
more complicated and pressing pcrma
n-mv in consular and diplomatic office,
based, upon knowledge ami proved fit
ness, will be the rule. This may mean
that it will not l>e so common a prac
tice to take scholars and authors from
private life and place them suddenly
in foreign consulates and missions.
But even then It is likely that our liter
ature will i>e enriched by the work of
men who have become authors while
enjoying the opportunities for new
studies and broader observation afford
ed by the foreign service of their coun
try. so that if hitherto literature has
contributed to diplomacy hereafter we
shall s"e our diplomacy contributing to
our literature, as has not Infrequently
already been the case.? Century.
The Roiunii Lnprtto.
The Roman lupetto, which is almost
Indistinguishable from the so called
Pomeranian dog, invariably tries to
bury or cover over any food given him
which he does not like. If fed on a
loose drugget lie will skillfully cover
up the obnoxious food; if the carpet Is
nailed down so that lie cannot do this
he goes through the exact process with
his nose which would turn over the
plate if it were movable. The lupetto
has a general contempt for any but
meat diet. and. though ne may conde
scend to accept bread and milk out of
deference to his owner (many of them
would not make this concession), he is
sure to go through the form of protest

skins of birds. Those skins, before be

by the women in order to make them
