The next international exposition will be held at San Francisco, Cal., from January 1 to June 30, 1804. The fair will be held in Golden Gate park and will cover an area of about 100 acres. The chief buildings will havo the titles, "Manufactures and Liberal Arts," "Agricultural and Horticul tural Hall," "Mechanical Arts," "Fine Arts and Decorative Art" and "Ad ministration Building." A young woman, a member of u church choir in St. Louis, went to the prosecuting attorney one day last week and demanded a warrant for the arrest of all its other members, because tbey had asserted that her voice was not good and that she spoiled tho harmony of every effort made by the choir. She wept when tho attorney told her the others had a right to criticise her voice. A chemist computos that at the present market value the human cadaver contains something like $lB,- 000 worth of calcium. But like tho fabulous values of aluminium iu clay, or of the gold in sea water, the cost of extraction at present prevents all profit to the would-be enterprising manufacturers, and the schools of anatomy will havo no immediate cause for alarm as regards commercial com potition. Attendance at tho World's fuir has considerably increased of late, and the rigid measures of economy adopt ed by the directors have largely re duced expenses without lessening the attractions of the exposition for the general public. The introduction of new features of popular entertain ment from day to day should notably swell the local patronage, while the out-of-town contingent of visitors, as during the centennial exhibition, will doubtless show a material increase in numbers from this time forth. The fair may not be a inarkod financial success; but the fear of disastrous failure need no longer haunt the dreams of its managers. During the last three months, while work of every kind was pretty generally suspended in all parts of the country, there is said to havo been a large exodus of Italians, Hungarians and Russians from the eastern states. It is estimated that not less than 50,- 000 men, mostly day laborers, depart ed for tlieir native homes. Steam ship companies vouch for the fuctH of this heavy transportation, and what is more, give it us their opinion that only a small percentage have an inten tion to return. This is significant, and not surprising. It is the custom of the Hungarians and Italians, on ac quiring sevoral hundred dollars, to re turn to their native countries, where they can live in comfort on their earn ings, and no doubt the unnsual num bor returning this year simply took advantage of Ihe hard times, fearing they would be thrown out of work in any event. It is extremely arnusiDg to the average citizen to see our Republican contemporaries seriously charging the Democratic party with all the wrongs and discrepancies under which the people are living at present. It seems to be their policy to try to con vince intelligent people that a mere change of administration effects and alters all laws of the nation. The ab surdity of their crying is plain to be seen, wben it is considered that the laws which are the cause of the pres ent temporary dullness in trade, are Republican measures, and moreover that no law which has the slightest connection with trade has been pas- Bed under tho present administration.

What is "fear of tariff reform?" ifas a manufac turer any more right now to de liberately shut clown his mill and throw men idle than at any time in the past? Wo see no reason for it. The whole matter simply resolves itself into one solution. That it is a fear, a fear that is cowardly, on the part of a goodly number of the peo plo of the country, to give a fair trial to some new measure that is meant for our benefit, when it is clearly proven that our present system of trade, after years of operation, is not all that the people desire, that causes all the opposition, and is the principal opposition, to the contemplated re vision of the tariff. F- _ ivJINf NE LOVE 1.1 LOdk Tho l i-autltul K.hijwmim o ' Af.it. :u Brazilian I telle lit Paris. At a recent dinner at which several diplomats were present the ever-fer tile bubjoct of beautiful women came up, and as usual evoked many com ments, criticisms, and memories of past beauties as compared with the belles of tho present day, says a writer in tho New York Tribune. "Who is the most beautiful woman you have ever seen?" was asked of the minister to , who has grown gray in tho service and had lived in every large town in Europe. "Unquestionably the empress of Austria," he replied, without a mo ment's hesitation. "Of course I speak of the time when she was younger and happier than she is now. I remember well the first time 1 saw her. We were j all assembled in a large salon of the paluce when some heavy velvet por tieres were suddenly drawn back and she appeared, surrounded by her ladies. It was like a veritable fairy scene. I suppose I was young and foolish and impressionable, but—what a vision of loveliness I thought her! She was dressed in violet, with some thing glistening all over it, and I took it all in at a glance—her regal figure and carriage, her magnificent 03*68 and the superb coronet of lialr which she wore plaited as one sees oven now in her pictures. She spoke most graciously to me, a youngster, and it was then and there that I became her slave and shall be till I die!" "Well," said one of bis listeners, "I never saw the empress of Austria, but 1 have a picture in my mind that I would not like to loan. My beauty was a Brazilian who hod lived in Paris most of her life. She was too perfect in looks to require any wits, I suppose, for I must confess she was rather stupid; but it suited her style to be apathetic and indifferent. One even ing my angel was smoking a cigarette and a spark fell on her light muslin gown. She only said: 'Look, mon ami, my dress is on fire; pray put me out,' and I really felt grateful to her for not jumping up and screaming as most women would, thus shattering my Ideal of the absolute calm and rest fulness of her great beauty." DUELING IS NO JOKE. Eighty Per Cent, of Duets in Europe Re sult In Casualties. It is a great mistake to imagine that casualties are tffe exception to Eu ropean meetings on the field of honor, sayb the St. Louis tlepublio. On the contrary, they constitute the rule, their average amounting to as high as > 80 per cent, of the duels fought in Ger -5 many, Austria, Italy, Russia, Belgium, F Holland and Spain, while in Franco the average is only about 40 per cent. , There were 4,000 duels fought during j the year 1800, in which 700 men were ( killed outright, 1,000 sustained dan gerous wounds which in many cases ' resulted fatally, while no less than 1 4,800 of the remaining combatants ro s coived minor injuries. That is to say, 1 out of 8,000 principals in 4,000 duels j only 1,400 escaped without harm. The 2 average is nearly identical in the other countries above named. From this it will be seen, oxcept, perhaps, in France, the chances of escaping scathe , less from a duel arc relatively very r small. Another disagreeable consideration of tho "iifFulr of honor" is the knowl edge that, instead of getting hurt or killed yourself, you may have the misfortune to inillct a mortal wound upon your adversary, In which case the tribunals of the country will generally sentence you to a term of Beveral months imprisonment and to pay heavy damages to the relatives of the dead man. A SURPRISED HUSBAND. lie ComeM Home In Time to Jolu In Cele brating IIIn Wife's First W<-ildiiig. When I returned from my latest trip, says a drummer, I went home at some thing- after nine o'clock in the evening. There was my house lighted up from top story to basement; carriages were leaving- the door, and alTairs seemed to be going on inside on a grand scale. I let myself into the basement with a latch key and walked into the dining room. Strains of music came from the back part of the hall, and tho minified laughter and conversations indicated a host of guests. Presently my wife came into the diuing-r<*>m dressed like a princess; she ran up to uic, saying: "Oh, Jack! I'm so glad you've come home early." "So*m I," said I; "what's tho racket —surprise party?" "Surprise party?" said she, with a pout; "no, indeed, it's the anniversary j of my wedding." "Tilda," said I, "you're oft; you're way off. This Is the month of March —it was in the summer wo were mar ried 1" She serenely replied: "I know that very well; this is the anniversary of my first marriage. Go put on your dress suit, dear."

Evans in the Pop ular Science Monthly, Jules Richard had occasion to visit a sick friend in a hospital, where ho made the acquaint ance of an old otlicial of the institu tion from the south of France who was exceedingly fond of animals, his love of them being equaled only by his hatred of priests. lie claimed also to j be perfectly familiar with the lan- | gtiage of cats and dogs and to speak the language of apes even better than the apes themselves. Jules Richard received this statement with an in credulous smile, whereupon the old man, whose pride was evidently touched by such skepticism, invited him to come the following morning to the zoological garden. 4, 1 met him at the appointed ploco," says Mr. Richard, "and wo went together to the monkeys' cage, where he leaned on the outer railing and began to utter a suc cession of guttural sounds which al phabetical signs are scarcely ade quate to represent—'Kirruu, kirrikie, kuruki, kirikiu'—repeated with slight variations and differences of accentua tion. In a few minutes the whole company of monkeys, a dozen in num ber, assembled and sat in rows before him with their hands crossed in their laps or resting on their knees, laugh ing, gesticulating and answering." The conversation continued for a full quarter of an hour, to tho intense de light of the monkeys, who took a live ly part in it. As their interlocutor was about to go away they all became intensely excited, climbing up the bal ustrade and uttering cries of lamenta tion. When he finally departed and disappeared more and more from tlieir view they ran up to the top of the cage, and, clinging to the frieze, made motions as if they were bidding him good-by. It seemed, adds Mr. Rich ard, as though they wished to say: "We are sorry to part and hope to meet again, and if you can't come, do drop us a lino!" HANGED THE INTRUDERS. How Home Wise an<l Ingenious Wrons Oot fild of the luqulHltlve HjmrrowH. Tho Uurlington Gazette tolls this in testing bird story, nnd has three men ready to sign anj' number of affidavits that it is true: At the end of Prof. Thomas' big barn are a number of bird houses for the use of the thousands of feathered songsters who keep the air alive in that locality. The place is close enough to the city to be infested with the pugnacious and hoggish English sparrow, and for some years the sparrows and the wrens have fought the season through for the pos session of the little houses. The wrens, being the sinullost, invariably came off second best in tlitf encounter until this year, when the 110109, or doors, were arranged so that a wren could got in, but a sparrow's body could not pass through. Still tho sparrows continued their annoyances by sticking their heads in tho doors as far as possible and worrying the poor little wrens to a state of distraction. Finally the wrens deeided upon a plan of action. They rigged up a horsehair noose directly Inside their little houses in such away that any intruding sparrow would stick his neck into it. As a consecpience the men were surprised one day to find a sparrow hanging by the neck from one of the housos, dead as a country town 011 Sunday, lie was cut down, and for a few days the sparrows let the wrens rest undisturlnid. Then another spar row became inquisitive, and before he knew it he too was dangling in the air, unable to savo himself. These are the only two Instances that came under the observation of the men, though others perhaps have happened. A NOVEL PLAN. How on ICiiqll*h Inn Provided for l'ftrmum with a Cold In the Head. Nothing but travel, and extensive travel at that, will give a person a full idea of the queer ways that there are in the world. An American who was not long since journeying through the midland counties of England relates : that in a small oountrj' town he once entered an itin, rather pretentious for the place, and called for turbot, a fa vorite dish in those parts. The American had had a few days of dense fog and his appearance and man ner perhaps showed that ho hail be come a little wheezy In consequence of the elimato. He was forced to have frequent recourse to his pocket hand kerchief. When the turbot was brought the guest fancied, even before it reached his plate, that it was no longer fresh, and an attempt to eat It confirmed that impression, lie called the proprietor, who at once sent a waiter for fresh turbot and removed the objectionable dish. "I beg your parding, sir," said the inn keeper, "but we got the idee, sir, as you came in, that you had a bad cold in yer 'cad, sir." "And suppose I had? What would that have to do with my being served spoiled fish?" exclaimed tho American, somewhat indignantly. "lie very think, sir. Wo has this rule in this *ouse: Fish as is a leetle doubtful, like that 'ere, sir—them which has lost the savpr of youth, as I may say—them wc serves to parties as appears to 'ave colds in their 'cads sir; and we finds that, heiu' as such parties can't smell nothink, they likes the fish just as well, sir, and hoften they pre fer 'crop' He Could Sympathize. * Mr. and Mrs. Fitts, of whom tho In ! dianapolis Journal tells a story, must bo both of them philosophers, though in different ways. The other day they were out driving, and after an interval ! of silence Mrs. Fitts remarked: "I wonder just what a liorsc thinks when ho is driven in this way. It must be very uncomfortable when lie is driven here and thcref without any idea what it is all for or where you ' are going." • "i think I can appreciate his feel | ings," said Mr. Fitts.

Fang Wore In Vogue In tlio Orient Thon niintlN of Year* Ago-Tliree Pretty NOT cities Outside ll:inKlng Poek et In UrfHt Variety. The origin of the fan can be traced to the most remote antiquity. "It is ascribed by some historians to Ivan-si, daughter of a Chinese mandarin, and by others to the sibyl of Cumea, who is said to have used a fan during 1 the de livery of her oracles." History repeats Itself. llow many of our modern sibyls deliver their oracles while gracefully manipulating their fans. But even long before tho days of the sibyl the fan was commonly used in Egypt, as is evident from its having been painted on the walls of the tombs at Thebes. where the king is represented sur rounded by a group of fan bearers. In Greece traces of the fan have been found as early as 500 B. 0. Fans were always popular among tho women of Home, and were often used by the men. At dinner it was a common custom for slaves to stand behind the chairs of the guests waving long-handled fans. This custom prevailed throughout our south ern states during the days of slavery, as it still does to u certain extent. I have often dined in the south where two or three young ncgresses stood round the table waving long fans mode of peacock feathers. The medieval fan was made of eagle or peacock feathers in a variety of forms, and fastened with handles of gold, silver or ivory, often set with precious stones of great value. Catherine de Medicts is said to have been the first to introduce a fan in Franco, and after her it was generally used. The fan she used could be folded like those of the present day. No court toilet was considered complete without a fan, and during the reign of Henry 11. and of the Louises fans be came objects of such luxury that they often cost hundreds of dollars. In England fans are less used than in almost any other.eountry. In Spain they are so much and so generally used that life would be incomplete to a Spanish woman without her fan. The women oi Spain carry on conversations with their fans; they have a regular code of sig nals which express their ideas, or rather feelings. In "Contarini" Flem ing Disraeli graphically describes the manipulations of tho fan by the fair Spaniard. In Japan and China the fan occupies a most important placo in daily life. The handsome Japanese paper fans arc most in vogue for ordinary use. Very pretty ones may be had for sov cnty-five cents. Feather, lace and r Ibbon fans arc most favored for evening-dress. Three novelties introduced this spring are here given. One is made of rosettes of ribbon fastened on tho sticks, and is u very handsome affair. Another is of ribbon having nino sticks, over which the ribbon seems to be woven like basket work. This called a witch's fan; opened one way, it all falls apart, to tho consternation of the uninitiated, who imagine the fan is wrecked; but opened the other way, presto! it is re stored to a perfect fan. The third fan shown Is one-half lace and the other half flowers. When closed It looks like a bouquet, and at the opera or theater serves the purpose of both fan and nosegay. The outside hanging pockets, which arc a necessity to some women, are made this spring in varied shapes and colors. Those most favored are of the envelope shape, crocheted on ringfc with silk to match the gown with HANGING FOOKBTB* which they are to be worn, and are or namented with little bows or tassels. Others of this shape aro crocheted in the close mitten stitch of black silk with patterns of jet beads. Pretty black and colored velvet bags, with gold and silver tops, are much in favor, as arc the velvet embroidered ones carried on the arm or fastened to the fan by long narrow ribbons. Those are easily made, and have a pretty and stylish appearance.—Julo Do Ityther. in Once a Week. To vVunli Chamois Cloves.

Physicians are often surprised at the ignorance of patients concerning tho use of poultices. Tho trouble arises from a wrong idea as to the curative action of a poultice. In general, poultices aro primarily localizers of inllammation; they act by softening and stimulating the tissues with which they are brought directly in contact. Tho fact that their value lies in the amount of heat and moisture which they radiate to these tissues is tho reason, probably, for their applica tion by the laity in every case where heat and moisture may happen to be indicated as necessary. Take, for example, says the Youth's Companion, two cases—a poisoned wound and a linger swollen by muscu lar strain. It is manifest that these two eases are not parallel, though in both the application of heat is indicated as a remedy. In tho case of the poisoned wound, we have the presence of a foreign sub stance in the tissues. This sets up a local inllammation, which by means of the circulation tends to spread and become general. We place a poultice over the affected part, and immediate ly the application of the heat brings to it a fresh supply of blood containing numerous leucocytes—white corpuscles —whose business it Is to make war upon all foreign matter with which they may come in contact, and pus is formed. This finds a proper means of escape through the softened tissues under the poultice, and with it comes the poison. In tho case of tho swollen finger, on the other hand, we have a simple irri tation, and what wo need in the way of treatment is just enough heat to draw a renewed supply of blood to tho weakened part for its nourishment. But we do not wish, as in the first case, to confine the heat long enough to stim ulate the leucocytes to activity, as in that event we should only have made a bad matter worse, with an abscess to take care of. The desired result may bo obtained by simply plunging tho finger into water as hot as can be borne for a short time, or by rubbing on a stimu lating liniment. The moral of all this Is that wc aro to use poultices only where we wish to localize inflammation. In sprains and the like proper stimulation is all that it required. THERMOMETER FRAME. How to Make an Otherwise Plain Instru ment Attractive. Every room should be furnished with a thermometer, and, in order that this may be ornamental as well as useful, procure a small hoop six inches in di ameter; wind closely with tinsel, and across the middle from top to bottom tack a half-inch ribbon, adding a small bow at each point of contact with the hoop. On the center of tills ribbon tack a small thermometer which you must bo sure to test before buying by J) ORNAMENTED FRAME FOR A TIIKIIMOM KTKR. placing your warm fingers on tho bulb to see if the mercury rises. At tho left of the thermometer stretch three rows of tinsel as shown in tho illustra tion. Fasten ribbon at the top to hang it, by lotting it rest perfectly fiat against the wall. A rectangular strip of birch bark with a thermom eter tacked in the middle and a bow of orange, or deop rod, or golden brown ribbon at the top is also pretty. The ribbons should harmonize with tho furnishings of the room, but these colors contrast prettily with the color of the bark. Another odd way to mount a thermometer is to fasten one in the center of a piece of weather beaten shingle that has Liken on ar tistic tints with ago.

A surprising quantity of dirt will come from the cleanest skin. The ammonia cleanses, and the camphor and the sea salt im part a beneficial effect which cannot be exaggerated.
