Miami is the healthiest and most promising

months old, the town has a population of 2,000,

BUYING TITLES ON COMMISSION
The American people are not easily shocked,
save in spots. They are so used especially to
the eccentricities of the rich, that it takes an
extreme case to excite even their passing atten
tion. They have blushed so much at the acts of
their aristocracy of wealth, that tho national
complexion seems weather beaten.
But when our ambassador at "the court of
Pome permits himself to be sued for $5,000 com
mission for securing a titled husband for his
daughter, there is an added glow that no ex
posure to nature's sun could cause. It was in
1904 that the daughter became the Countess do
For three years the count swam in American
money and extravagance. Then he had the grace
to die. Now the Frenchman who says he ar
ranged the marriage on a commission of which
ho was paid a part, but has been unable to col
lect the balance, has brought suit.
Nor is this an unusual case, except .in its get
ting to the courts". Tt is not a thing unknown
that matrimonial agents have found titles in
Europe for American families, who did no.t have
the social standing to bring them in personal
contact with fortune seeking nobility.
America has known this in a general way and
newspapers have at intervals told of particu
lars. But these wore the cases of private citi
zens and not of official representatives at for
eign courts. Nor have any of the""ben'eficiaries
had to bo'sucd to make good their contracts.
Of course in the present instance, the ambas
sador, even if the case is as stated, which has
stilllo be proved, may be justified in contend
ing that the balance was forfeited when the
count died, and that he had already paid enough
for a title that only lasted three years. Again
it may be pure blackmail.
Yet even at that the public will wish the $5,000
had been paid and a receipt taken in full, even
if it had been put in a consular deficiency appro
priation. It is one thing for a private citizen to
have such a contract charged against him and
quite another for the United States, as it were,
to be sued on such an account.
Even that such a suit could be brought is a
national disgrace. But it is tho national result
of these little bargains and sales, which are but
purely mercenary and most vulgar transactions,
whether made direct or through some agency.

Easter Myths and Customs.
Many and varied are the supersti
tions. Ideas and customs which cluster
around Easter. Ono of the best known
is that it is unlucky to neglect the
wearing of new attire on Easter day.
This widely prevalent custom originat
ed. It is said, with tho young people
of Yorkshire, England, who never fall,
to provide for themselves some new
article of dress or of personal adorn
ment, firmly believing that unless'they
do the crakes or rooks will avengo
tho neglect by damaging their cloth

Tho weather on Easter day is also
specially significant. This is a point
for forecasters. If the sun .blazes out
on Easter day, that is very good au
gury, for It is sure to shine again on
Whitsunday in May. An old couplet
tells us that
A good deal of rain on Easter day
Gives a good crop of grass, but little good
The direction from which the wind
blows should also bo carefully noted.
If the wind Is in the cast It Is said
that there Is great virtue in the water
used on Easter day.
A curious fable connected with Eas
ter day is that on that day the sun
could be seen to dance, a superstition
which has readily been traced to hea
then origin. It was the custom during
the ancient pagan spring festivals, of
which the modern Easter is an adapta
tion, for the suu worshipers who held
these ceremonies to dance at a festival
in honor of tho sun after tho vernal
equinox. Leslie's Weekly.
