While in London and subsequently during
several years residence in France and Italy,
Miss Logan was a regular correspondent of
The Boston Saturday Evening Gazette and
Toe Golden Era of San Francisco, journals
which then held high literary prominence and
njoyed a particularly sunny heyday of pros
perity. She also won considerable fame as a
writer of short stones for the magazines of
"England and this country.
She married abroad during our civil
war, but returned to this country soon after
It ended and has remained here ever since,
be lived in Washington, writing stones and
corresponding for several journals. At length
she became associate editor of Don Piatt's
paper. The Capital, so distinguished at that
time as the wittiest and most speak your

vigorous editorials which made it famous
ware written by Celia Logan, though, of
coarse, that fact was only known within Tha
Capital office, and to a few outsiders who
war closely connected with the career of The
Capital As is the case of hundreds of other
Journalistic writers, it has been her fortune
to do much of ber best work in this imper
sonal way, and so lose the credit of what
would have made her famous.
In addition to ber original writing she
has done ma eh excellent work as a translator
from the French and Italian. Curiously
sough, her first efforte in that field were
made in converting American war news from
English into Latin. She lived in Milan,
Italy, during our late war. The facilities of
the Milanese press for obtaining American
war news were then much below what was
demanded by the importance of the occasion.
Miss Logan was known as one of the literati,
and as it was understood that she regularly
received news from ber own country con
cerning the struggle which then engrossed
the attention of the civilrxed world, the direc
tors of the Milanese press appealed to ber for
aid. Not then being sufficiently acquainted
with Italian to translate into that language,
and English being a sealed book to Milanese
Journalists, a compromise suggested by her
was tned and proved to be a happy solution
of the difficulty. She first put the American
war news into Latin and then the journalist
turned the Latin into Italian.
Another important branch cf Miss Logan's
literary work bas been the rewriting, adapt
ing and translating of plays. As m the case
of so much of her editorial work, the credit of
what aha has done in this direction has gone
to others, who have won fame and fortune
by her combined literary and dramatic tal-1
of. One of her works, the drama, "An
American Marriage, " bas been eminently
successful in winning both the plaudits of tha
public and the approbation of the press. Her
intimate relations with the stage have given
ber unusual advantages for critical judgment

t2pe ial Correspondence
New Yorx Sept in I he preparations
for the celebration of tlte golden jubilee of
1'ojns Is XII 1 are no stirring the whole
Catholic world, and it is it i tain that it will
be the most imposing pageant that even the
imperial city of Home has seen for hundreds
of j ears.
Cardinal tiiblwns, and Ilishoiw Keane of
1 Ilichmond and Ireland of Minnesota, who
I have but recently returned from a a iit to
Home, saj that the arrangements for the jubi
lee are ling made on a scale that u more
thin magnificent. Oifts of inonej mid of its
I equivalent in various kinds are flowing in
An idea of the manner in which Catholics
are interested may be gleared from the fact
that the oft", ring of the United States of Co
lomhin, in South America, alone amounts to
1,1P0,Ui t) francs.
Cardinal Giblions, the primate of the Amer
ican Catholic church, has alread) taken the
imtiatie in America in the matter of propter!-celebrating
the jubilee in common with
o'her countries He lias appointed a com
mittee to make all tbe necessary arrange
ments, and other bishops will follow his ex
ample. Pojs Leo has alwavs taken a pro
found interest in America, which he seems to
regard as the richest territory in which the
Catholic church has len planted
It is not strange that the pops; should ap
preciate American
Catholicity. It
cost him less aux
let) thin any other
section of the
church Less than
100 3 eirs ago there
ns not a Catholic
bishop in America
and but few priests.
When tbe last ple
nary council was
held, in accordance
with the spe's or
ders, there were
present in it 13
arcbbiahops,.7 pora " xm-
bihois and 100 priest, and these represented
some T.OOO.aO Catholics, who support T.OnO
rnests, (3,000 churches, n.OOO chapels, 31 eccle
siastical seminaries, 700 colleges, 500 h. ")!
tal a and asvluni, and "..VO parochial schools,
in which nenrlv SOO.OnO children were taught.
These figures will explain why the pope
takes an interest in America He has a
further reason in the fact that it was the
American minister at Home, Mr Astor, who
by his intervention saved tbe splendi 1 Amer
ican College of the Propaganda at Home
from confiscation by the Italian government
two years ago.
Archbishop Corriean, of New York, has
already commissioned Dr. McDonnell, bis
private secretary, to represent him at the
jubilee Bishop Loughlin, of Brooklyn, the
senior bihop of the American Catholic
church, will, with many other bishops, at
tend in person, and there will lie priests and
la men delegated from every diocese in the
country to carr gifts and testimonials of all
kinds, as well as copies of every Catholic
book and newspaper of consequence in Amer
ica to present to the pope.
The present jubilee is intended to be at
tended bj none but good feeling. When the
queen's jubilee was celebrated tbe pope or
dered masses to be celebrated throughout
England in honor of the event It is in the
same spirit that be hope his own celebration
to be lewed.
It u a few months more than ten yea.-
since Tope Pius IX celebrated his jubilee un
der very different circumstances. He was
very near to the end of a reign longer tban
that of any previous pop and quite as tem
pestuous. He had bren but recently shorn of
his temporal power, and he made the jubilee
season tbe occasion of issuing a pastoral letter
on tbe subject so bitter as to arouse all Eu
rope. It was but a few months later when
he died.
At the time of bis death the Vatican was
at war with almost every European power,
and when, after a two days contest in tbe
early part of Ibis, it was announced that tbe
college of cardinals had ele ted Joachim Vin
cert Pecci to succeed Pio Xono, the knowing
ones shook their heads. A tall, slender,
sweet faced Italian, he had been papal nun
cio to Belgium and liad ruled in the sees of
8puletto and Perugia. He had been fairly
successful in these posts, and that was about
all that could be said of him.
The same pale face., seemingly frail mas
is now rated by Catholics as among the great
est of the popes, of whom be is the SGOth. It
is intended in tbe coming jubilee to do full
honor to Pope Leo's achievements, which
have all been accomplished in less than ten
They miy lie summed up briefly, although
their results have unquestionably placed the
Catholic church in a lietter position than it
bas held for generations, besides bringing
about a much better and fuller understand
ing lietneen Catholics and non Catholics.
Pope Leo found the Vatican at war with
Bismarck and tbe bishops of Germany were
lieing harassed by tbe famous Falk laws The
Falk laws are now practically abolished and
Bismarck and the pope are friends. The
Greek and Latin branches of tbe church were
fighting The incoming pope settled that
He crushed out the reactionary spint in
Home He bas even gone far toward concili
ating the Italian government He arbitrated
the dispute between Germany and Spain oter
the Caroline Islands. He is on better terms
with all Europe than any other modem pope
has been. By means of the late plenary
council be bas thoroughly reorganized tbe
Catholic church in America, and besides has
approved plans for a national Catholic uni
versity at Washington that is to cost i-,000,U 0
and compare favorably with an in Europe.
These are his more important acts, and,
although tbe pope is 77 years old and frail in
bealtb, be is still untiring
The jopo is reported as being extremely
anxious that the jubilee should be lu ever
sense a magnificent nffair. There are more
tban 30,000,01)0 Catholics under his rule, and
it cannot be doubted that his wishes in this
respect will be gratified Etery race and
color will lie represented in Home during the
month of November, and every language will
be heard on ber streets. There are, of course,
the usual rumors that the pope will use the
jubilee to astonish tbe powers of Europe and
induce them to restore some of his lost tem
poral power.
Tbe impression among Catholics is, how
ever, that the pope, who is an old man, and
who, ir the natural course of things, cannot
live man ears, wishes to round out a long
career in a striking and impressive manner.
The wish may be pardoned him by those who
are of his faith and those who are not

greatest exploits, unless he could s.ay at

interest" Instances are cited in which

to every nook anil corner of rrnnce; but,
like certain wines that are improved by a

was ull the greater on account of the de

alier de la Guelte, escorting the Haron des
Hossignols to the depot at Hezicrs, say.
"As for you, old fellow, I shill pay yon
bick at Dunkirk in six months' time "
The Hamn des Hossignols may rely on the
chevalier's meeting his obligations nt ma
turity. As for me, said friend Doublure, I
did not liav e to w ait so v ery long for re
tcngc, the last time, when I got even
with that confounded scamp, llechard.
Bechard is not a liad fellow , but he is the
most inveterate joker that ever lived.
His system is rather ou the old stvle He
has no creative genius, and tries to keep
ahead by practicing a lot ofclas.sic.il jokes
which he nlways keeps in stock. IIu
imagination is so sterile that he is com
lelled to rely on quantity to replace what
is wanting in quality Hut, in this world,
c er bod does the best he can Yet, in
doing what he can, Hechard become
bore vv ith his jokes When lie has picked
any one out as the butt of his wit the
victim has either to display his temper,
which always shows Kid form, or to leave
the place to Ilechinl and go elsewhere.
On my List trip to Quimper I had need
of all my patience on his account Hav
ing stopied nt the Hotel de l'Epee, I met
him at tlie breakfast table Delighted in
finding a good subject to practice on, my
friend Bechnrd went to work without loss
of time In the evening, at dinner, fritters
were brought in Hechard, who had left
the dining room fora minute, returned just
In tine to take the dish from the waiter
nnd place two fritters upon my plate At
the first bite my teeth met with a soft re
sistance that spt them on edge. I took
the fritter liotvvcen my fingers, and open
ing it, I found a small card, round as n
coin, lieanng this lnscnptioa: "The best
cloth may be 1ml from the house of ,"
giving the name of the firm represented
by my fnend Bechnrd I put on a pleas
ant face over the matter, and, after din
ner, we started out together to the coffee
On the sidewalk, at the very door of the
hotel, Hechard offered me a Ixjndres,
which I accepted; he was even kind
enough to hand me a burning match. I
lit my cigar, but before I hod gone fifty
steps, pschttl a real Roman candle blazed
out between my teeth, nearly blinding
one of my customers who had come up to
speak to me. He went away furious, and
I lost his trade, while, at the distance of
three steps, Hechard was clinging to a
lamp post, laughing to kill himself. At
the coffee house he caused me to stumble,
thereby making me tear the cloth of the
billiard table, which uiishap cost me
twenty francs. Later on we returned to
the hotel.
Wu stayed awhile, chatting with the
landlord. Hechard soon left us, begging
to be excused, as he felt cry sleepy. I
did not go up stairs until fully a quarter
of an hour after he did, and I am sue
that you will not be astonished when I
tell you that he had made goal use of the
fifteen minutes When I put my key into
the lock I found that I could not open
the door; it was fastened on the inside
After all, was it really my room' Evi
dently not, as I heard, on the inside, the
grumbling of somebody whose slumlier
had been disturbed I returned down
stairs. No, there was no mistake "Your
room is No 13, sir!" I went up again,
and this time succeeded in opening tht
door. I am in m) room. No, by Jove! it be
longs to somebody else, for there is a per
son in the lied I leg his pardon, and am
ou the point of withdrawing when nn idea
strikes me Going to the bed, I gently
tap the sleeier on the shoulder and find
that I haveliecn trying to arouse my
bolster, to which I had been addressing
my apologies I soon found the solution
of the m stery when I discovered a panel
door in one of the corners of tbe room
It was plain that Hechatd had managed
to get the room next to mine I tried the

door. I rapped. A loud snore was the
only answer I got. 1 he joke hail been

Hechard was undoubtedly a great man.
I got in lied at last aud fill asleep while
revolving in my mind different plans by
means of which I could obtain a striking
revenge. But the qucsaon was, would I
have sufficient time' Supiose Ilechinl
were to escape the net day! No dangc.
we were both going to Douarnenez We
would meet again.
We did meet again, the next morning,
just after rising.
"I say," said Hechard, coming up to
me, "are ou going to Douarnenez?"
"In what carriage?"
"In my ovu."
' "Could yon manage to make room for

"I say." observed Bechanl at tho same
instant, " 'tis this blnstesl apron that is
keeping us so hot. buppo.se we try to
raise, it "
"All right," replied I, "let us try."
We raised the apron
"'Twill not do," said I "Yon see
yourself that with it raised I shall not be
able to handle the reins "
We put it hack again There was a long
intervalof silence Ihchard was between
a stew- and a sweat, while I was I1 fol
lowing ir;i the threads of an Idea that my
brain had just evolved.
"By jingo' I can't stand them any
longer," said Bechard
"What'" queried I
"M breeches, of course."
"Well, if they bother ou so much as;
all that, why don't ou take them off?
Nobody will see ou."
"That's an idea'" excliimed Hechard
"And a cixsl one, I assure you I speak
from experience, ns I have done so mself
more than twenty turns "
"Honestly speaking'"
"Yes, I pledge you my wonl of honor."
"Well, then, here goes'"
And in one time and two motions
Bechnrd took off Ins pantaloons, folded
them carefully and sat down on them
with a sigh of relief
From that moment his humor was most
chinning With a slight touch of iron
in his voice, he inquired if I had slept well
the night before
"I slept very soundly," replied I.
I carefully noted the mile stones at tho
side of the road Audierne was barely
more than two kilomctirs away I waited
a few minutes longer Suddenly, as I
stretched forth mv arm to touch up the
horse, ni whip slipped from my baud and
dropped to the ground
'My whip'" cried I
"Has it fallen Well, get down and
get it."
"And my horse"
"I will hold him."
"No, indeed He is too restive, na
seems to obe no other hand but mine."
"What hall we do, then'"
"Won't ou get it for me'"
"Certalnlv, but wait till I slip on my
pantaloons "
"What is the ue' There is not even a
cat to be seen an where within two kilo
mttcrs of this place "
"All riht' wait a minute."
And Bechanl, uusii-pecting Bechard,
jumped out of the carriage to the road.
Hardly had he touched the earth than I
gave a -light twitch to the reins and my
horse started off like lightning.
"He Hey'" howled Bechard in a hor
rified voice
I did not heir him long, ns my horse,
urgeil on by m v oice, was running at a
feirful rnte of speed
But, through the little glass in the rear
of the vehicle. I could see the unfortunate
mm brandishing in despair the whip,
which he had picked up, aad stretching
his bare legs as fast ns he could along the
dusty nvd. Oh' what a funny sight my
friend Bechard furnished me with
I relished my crnel joy until I reached
the principal houses of Audierne, as I
carried my v engeance so far as to drivo a
good distance up tho main street Here,
at last, I checked my horse and waited.
It would be no easy task to desenbe tho
astonishment of the good people of
that city, when they saw coming a
sweating, blowing, fuming and swear
ing stranger, noble looking, with
a hat ou bis head, a jacket on his
back, a whip in hand, but entirely want
ing in nether garments. The women of
the place ran off, cackling like a lot of
frightened hens, whilo the excited men,
mistaking the queer visitor for a lunatic,
were on the jsiint of mobbing him He
chard had barely time to leap into tho
carriage, and I reallv tielieve that if he
had not been nvvare of the fact that I was
the stronger of the two he would have
tried to stnngle me.
"You would hanlly believe," said
friend Doublure, in concluding his rela

I have found upon investigation that
the English railways have to bear t he one r
ous task in the way of furnishing free
transportation to prominent individuals
and officials, as did the railroads in the
United States before the passage of the
interstate commerce bill. I was told by a
railroad official the other day that all of
the ro allies travel free, and that they
. expect in addition special coaches. Tho
visiting ronltics hive also been furnished
. free transportation, and m many instances

special train assigned to the members of
