JUSTICE IN CHINA.
Tha Impartial Way In Which Celaallal •fudges Mete Oat Pnnlahment. A Yun-ch'-i-yu (hereditary offlcor) named Ch'ang-shan. a Manchu belong ing to the Bordered Blue Banner, was ordered two years ago to take up his quarters at a post station called Su-wu yen, for the purpose of patrolling the country against robbers. At the same time special orders were given to him to keep a watch upon the soldiers of the station, who were reported to be In the habit of oppressing the people in its neighborhood. One day when the officer in charge of the station whs away at Kirin, a soldier named Sun Tien-hsiang went to a shop mid tried to buy some drugs on credit. As. how ever, he owed money for previous purchases, the shopkeeper refused to let him have any thing without pay ment. He therefore became very vio lent, upon which the shopkeeper went to complain of him to Ch'ang-shaii. who sent for him, reprimanded him and then let him go. Next day the shopkeeper came again to say that the soldier had gone hack to the shop, knocked over the counter and threat ened to kill the complainant and nil hie family. The officer again called up the soldier, who behaved in a very re fractory and insubordinate manner in court. He therefore ordered him to receive a flogging of twenty blows, which were inflicted with n whip on the back of his leg. As soon as he was released, the man went to the kitchen of the post-station, where he remained for twelve days, at the end of which he died from the injury he had received. A complaint was lodged by his brother, and a thorough inquiry was made Into the case by officers specially deputed for the pur pose by the Memoralists. The Memor allst finds that the officer Ch'ang-shnn acted quite rightly in taking notice of the soldier's misbehavior, more especially ns he had been particularly desired to see to such matters. Also, the soldier's conduct, towards the shopkeepers and in court was such us to merit a flogging, the punishment was inflicted on a proper part of his person, and the number of blows was moderate. Nevertheless the Memor ulist condemns the officer to receive one hundred blows under a statute which awards that penalty for causing a man's death by flogging him improp erly. As the offender in this case is a com missioned officer, his dismissal from the service will take the place of corporal punishment. He will also lose his hereditary post, to which another member of his family is ap pointed to succeed. In accordance with a further clause of the law above quoted the man by whose hand the fatal flogging was actually inflicted has been condemned to receive ninety blows, that being a penalty one degree lighter than the sentence of his supe rior under whose orders he acted. As he is a Manchu, the flogging will be given with the whip instead of th< bamboo .—Pekin Gazelle. ATTENTION TO DETAILS. A Few Illustrations of the Importance ol I.lttla Things. The entire universe is composed of little things. All substances, all mat ter. in whatever form or condition, is au aggregation of atoms or molecules. Absolute perfection is rarely attaina ble. os a defect in a single atom is likely to affect the whole combination. A bridge is no strongei than its weakest point. A machine or implt> ment may be ever so perfect, with a single exception, and that exception may prevent the use of all the balance. How often do we find it the cose that the neglect of some little moment, ho» turned the tide towards failure wheu success was in sight. Manufacturers often become so ab sorbed in some vital principal, that they neglect details, little points are overlooked, and when dependence is placed on these, they full, and the whole work is condemned as a conse quence. A recent invitation to inspect the working of a new machine was a disappointment simply because the manufacturer had neglected to send a single bolt, and loss of time and dis appointment to the party noeding tho machine wus the result. An article for household use, but little liable to get out of order, but requirin'» a wrench to remove certain parts nusn it be came a necessity, was thrown out be cause the wrench was useless. In this case every part was carofully made and fitted, and of good material, hut it required a wrench of special form to adjust certain parts in case of failure to work properly. Although tho arti cle wax an expensive one, the wrench was a common cast iron affair, with jaws beveled and unfinished, except for tiio superfluous japan with which it was coated to hide its imperfections. It would have been next to useless even had it fitted, as it had net suffi cient strength, but it was doubly pro voking to find that, while it was essen tial to the proper working of the arti cle, and instructions how and where it was to be used under certain eircura stances accompanied it, it was per fectly useless when the emergency oc curred. A perfect wrought iron wrench, would have cost but little more and been effective, but it was too smalt a matter to deserve special at tention, apparently, and the neglect resulted, not only in a positive loss to the purchaser, but a condemnation in stead of a recommendation, which pro fluencing them .—Stoves and Hardware. vented sales to others instead of in Clerk —"Mr. X., our rival, has cut prices on coal so as to get some of our trade, nnd is now scllirwr « per cent less nor »«Ô u ' 9 we otiofe " rJ. 1 x| t0D u th °, prlc,) ® ■ ... a ,,, r , llnt "Has lie, VV ell, well beat him at his n game.

The writer was particularly nnxioui > to got I'rof. Proctor's \ ;.-ws tom nne , the relative value of these three gam • and he cheerfully gave them In the following words: "The game of billiards stands first in some respects, in that it afford« physical and mental exercises at once There is not much strain on the mind, however, und I never knew a billiard expert to ho the possessor of u groat intellect. Ho must possess a peculiar ly-organized mind, but he may know nothing of mathematics, and yet may solve, with lightning rapidity, intricate problems in geometry—practical prob lems. A quick and true eye, good nerves and a steady hand, all practiced and disciplined, enable him to make the shots with mathematical precision. As I said, a great billiard-player may be a man of little mentality. As a rule, the billiard champions are men of it low order of intellect. I havo tried billiards, and I know I never could reach the highest rank, because I am wanting in one of the requisites. "Whist may be classed among the scientific games, yet it is not devoid of chance. It affords more pleasure to its votaries than any other game I know. The element of chance gives the excitement. To play a correct game of whist requires brains, or I should, perhaps, say memory. The greatest man living, if he possesses a defective memory, can never become a good whist-player. I believe I have mastered whist, and, not to m ego tistical, I hold myself to be a player of the highest rank. I play whist oftenor than any othor game, for the reason that it is not hard work, and is just ex citing enough to afford me the sort of diversion I noed. "Chess is the greatest of all games. I confess I havo never succeeded in mastering it; havo never fathomed its depths. It is a delightful pastime, and can not be commended too hlghtly as a mental disciplinarian; but if one wishes to enjoy it he must not attempt to become a great player. Nine times out of ton ho would meet disappoint ment, for only a few men nchleve great ness in chess. It is not likely that Paul Morphy will be dupllcntod in the present century. Chess is a purely scientiflc game, wholly devoid of the element of chance. The brain must exercise itself in playing this game. •Icaniseh, the distinguished Russian mathematician, gave it as his opinion that chess is more intricate than the integral calculus. Buckle, the his torian, hold this same opinion. It Is doubtful whether the game will ever be Improved ."—Atlanta Constitution. ! A CHICAGO ROMANCE. Mr. Darn.lie Win» a I.o.ely Girl and Makes a Keaaonable Request. "It i» »o sudden, Mr. Darnelle." "I know it is," responded tho young man, gently. Ho stood before her, with his weight resting cosily on one foot, his loft el bow on tho mantel-piece, his right arm hehind him, and his whole attitude one of careless, unstudied ease and grace acquired only by long and putient prac tice. "I know it is," ho repeated. "Meas ured by ordinary standards and by the cold conventionaltios of society, it is indeed sudden. We have known each othor only twenty-four hours. Until twenty-five minutes after eight o'clock lost night neither of us hod ever heard of tho other. Yet with*the heart one day is as a hundred years. Could we have known one another better, dar ling." ho went on, with a tremor in his cultivated B flat baritone voice, "if Wo had attended tho theater, tho concert, the church, and the oyster pnrlor to gether for a dozen seasons? Does not your heart beat responslvo to mine?" "I will not pretend to deny, Mr. Dar nelle," replied the young lady, with a rich blush mantling her cheek and brow, "that your avowal moves me strangely." "I knew it—I felt it," he responded, eagerly. "Love is not the »low, vege table-like growth of years. It does not move in its course with the meas ured, leisurely step of a man working by the day.

A PREACHER'S STORY. How Gond Mother Wickham Received tha New Circuit Rider. A number of young clergy mon, all , graduates of the Methodist Theological -'em inary at Evanston, mot down town I I a Is the other day and were relating to each other anecdotos of their experience in the various fields to which they had been assigned. "My most amusing experience," said one young brother, "was in a little village in Iowa where the conference sent me to begin my ministerial work. My circuit includ ed throe or four little villages and as many school-houses, and I tried to preach a sermon at each place once every two weeks. In the village of Kdgewood dwelt i good old lady named Mrs. Wickham, an emigrant from the (1 roen mountains and one of the pll lurs of the church. I had just been married before going on the circuit, and the noxt day after our arrival in Kdgewood Mrs. Wickham sent for my wife and myself to come to her house. "In the afternoon wo went and wore warmly greeted by the old lady. *1 am so glad you've come. Brother L-, and brought your wife,' said »ho. T've been waitin' and waitin' you do.-.'t know how anxiously ever since Broth er Jones went away, which is nigh un to three months, and there hasn't bon a preacher In this house since. I've got Homo little things to do that I've ben a-savln' till the minister come, and | now you've brought Sister L get them olfii our hands and then we can sit down und have a good, long talk." Let'» "I confess I was a little puzzled at this reception, not knowing exactly what the people on my circuit had been in the hubit of saving up for the min ister to do. However, I was not long left in the dark. The old lady disap peared Into the kitchen and soon called for us to follow. Wo did so, and found the room littered with two or three old bedsteds that had been taken to pieces and spread about the floor. In the middle of the floor stood Mrs. Wick ham, with a big kettle of boiling water at her side. "Now, Sister L- , jest you take this hero apron of mine, or you'll spoil your dress,' she said to my wife. 'The pesky bugs have been so bad in thuse bedsteads that I havo sometimes felt jest as if I couldn't wait till you come to give 'em a good scalding.' "This, then, was a part of the cir cuit rider's duties in Iowa, thought I; but the old lady seemed to take it so entirely as a matter of course that the preacher should help hur with her work that I couldn't well refuse. My wife laughingly put on the apron and j went to work and I took off my coat ! nnd cuffs and took hold, too. It was a long job and after wo had got the bedsteads thoroughly scalded theyhiid I to bo carried up-stairs, set up, and I corded.' for they were the old fash ioned kind of bedstends in which ropes tlid duty in lieu of springs or slats. But this did not end the work, for on coming down-stairs the old lady remarked that the stove was a little warm yet, but that if I wus careful I could black it without burn ing my hands. This was a littlo too much, nnd 1 was about to rebel, but my wife whispered to mo that we might as well make n day of it. So we went at that stove and polished it till you could jeo your face in it, and then helped the old Udy clean up the kitchen. By that time the sun was down, and our hostess kindly permitted us to withdraw. Did ivo stay to supperP Why, bless you, the i good soul in her joy at getting her house cleaned up forgot to say any thing about supper. We were glad 3notigh to get home without being asked to dig up the potatoes or build a :nlf pen. But ever since that day my wife and I have always had a prior en jugement when asked to visit Mrs. Wickham.
