He declares, with much show of virtuous indigna tion that it was-a large bribe. It will be remembered that the monkey used the oat's paw to pull the ches* nuts out of the tire. This is the earliest recorded instance where the chestnut in tho ease was not regarded as a joke. Kaiskk Wilhelm has relented, and so we shall have at the world's fair one of the crack military bands of Germany. Being under severe dis cipline, it will undoubtedly excel in effectiveness some of our local or chestras; and the fact that its horns gire tooted in Moesogothie will have no detractive effect, as.music, heavenly maid, is panlinguul. The difference, in culpability be tween a Chinaman who s tin of opium and the merchant who smuggles in a trainload of silk is a question so delicate that adjudication of it might tax the ordinary mind. But to the federal representatives in California the problem is simplicity itself, much to the discomfiture of the Chinaman and the elation of the mer chant. _ Tub suit of a Poughkeepsie woman to recover heavy damages from a rail road company for killing a man to whom she was engaged to be married may set a precedent of great import ance to bachelors.

The second conclusion could probably be applied with equal force to the smashup of a train running K.O miles an hour. It would require a micro scope to determine the difference be tween the wrecked passengers and the wrecked amperes, volts and ohms. aggies in a Tire end of s -hool is not or should ^ not be the end of education or culture The man in his life learns to under stand and apply what came to his mind but dimly as a school boy. The subjects that bore the bay interest the man. It is therefore well that he should be introduced to as many linos of thought as possible while a child, that he may select the one that inter ests him when he comes to his mature years. It has been remarked that a man rarely enlarges his field after ha Jeaves school. He may cultivate the ground he has gone over or choose some patch of it to which to give his special attention, but he rarely adds to it It is thus we'll that the ground should be as extensive as possible. A i^w years ago when the Lick ob servatory was being planned it was confidently announced that the thirty six inch aperture planned for in the Lick telescope would have reached the maximum size, that insurmountable physical obstacles would prevent any larger lens ever being constructed. The new observatory presented to the Chicago university by Charles T. Yerkes is to have a telescope with a forty-five inch lens, and the genius has already been engaged to grind it. Bight on the heels of this comes the confident assertion of the French as tronomer, M. Delnocle, that for the world's fair in 11100 he will have ready a telescope equipped with a lens nine feet ten inches in diameter, nineteen inches thick,to weigh about nine tons, which will renfler visible surface ob jects on the moon not less than five feet square.

Neither he nor the tailor had any idea of the distinguished badges of rank so impor tant in the outer makeup of a soldier, and an old print of Gen.

One old Sergeant spent almost the entire day in a charitable donation of information on company movements. ' When the next morning came the "Captain-General" marshalled'his host, and footed it eighteen miles to Harris burg, where, at high noon, to spirited music, the company, with its glittering leader, tramped into the city. For two days the Captain strutted about, won dering at the salaams that greeted him from all quarters, until an acquaint ance met him and said: ,,, ,, I will tell you what you are," said the aequamtance. "You are the great est sensation in the camp, and the sooner you take off that Major-Gen eralscoat the better; the boys think you are a Drum-Major."
