THE HOLIDAYS IN EUROPE.
Bismarck and His Love of Christmas— The Chancellor's Kit
tens and His Glass of Wine at Bed Time on
the Eve of the Feast Day.
Natalie, the. Ex-Queen of Servia, and Her Wardrobe—
Fondness for Amelie Rives' Writing's and the
Blood-Hot Passion of Ella Wheeler.
"Special Cable to the •Rio!'*'-'. ,
Berlin, Germany. Dec. •22.— the
hospital for the maintenance of the de- i
serted offspring of free lovers, I saw a
child look up at a portrait of Bismarck,
which hung on the wall, and say:
"Blessed man!"
So singular was it that a toddling
youngster of five summers should call
the man of iron "blessed," 1 inquired as
to the cause, and . as told that for
twenty years Prince Bismarck has sup
plied this hospital, and all others of J
this kind iv Germany, with kittens for
the children and cats for the mice, free
of cost. lii fact, that in the suburbs of
the city the chancellor maintained a
large feline breeding house, which was
one of the prides of his life.
Whither 1 went, and there I saw a
sight that would have made all Europe i
laugh— Bismarck, the dictator, gravely
engaged in administering loud w*>th*_f
spoon to a very young kitten, whose
mother and lather had been shot on the
border of the fatal Alsace-Lorraine ter
ritory.
iii- prince smiled when I showed
him my card, and asked that for Ameri
can readers lie say something of his
Christmas habits and his precious cater
waul
"1 shall be pleased," he replied,
"Christmas is to me a good day— wine,
a pipe, the children all sick, noise all
over the house, too much to eat — Aclili
1 come here, and my pets cheer me. See, I
they can sing."
He spoke in German to half a dozen
Maltese cats, and gave a command.
Lo! and. behold, each cat spoken to sat
upon its haunches, elevated its head,
and, with distended mouth, and quite
correctly as to time, sang the "Marseil
laise." •
When they had finished, Bismarck
looticd at me with his big grave eyes
and remarked:
"It, is thus that I remember that there
is a France somewhere."
"What will you do on Christmas?" I
ventured to ask.
A map of Europe was painted on the
ceiling of the cattery. To that small
portion of it known as Bulgaria the
chancellor pointed.
"1 shall give that to my good friend,
the czar, but he must yet Constantino
ple as best lie can."
"And when you have done that?" I
timidly continued.
"My dear young lady, what will come
after that 1 cannot say. The czar wears
a No. 12 stocking. Bulgaria tills but a
small part of the toe. Should all Tur
key be dropped in, you may have occa
sion next Christmas to ask me to give
you a map of Europe as she now is for
a curiosity."
The interview then terminated. On
my return to the city I learned thai
on each Christmas eve it is the habit of
this j.. terrific man and joker with can
nons to drink a glass of wine into which
a grape from every vineyard on the
Rhine has been pressed, and that as it
goes slipping down his throat he says
quite audibly, with his lace towards
France and nightcap pointing in the di
rection of St. Petersburg:
"Until yon can make men such as
this does— wail wait— wait.*'
THE S\l» NATALIE,
Ami the Costumes That Cheer
Not Her Soul.
"The swishing winds swash over my I
head and the swashing waves swish
against my soul.'* said Natalie, ex
queen of Servia, to me in Paris lately.
1 recognized the sentiment littered as
one taken from our famous American
authoress, Amelie [live**. The queen
smiled a sweet, sad Bulgarian smile as j
1 uttered my recognition.
"The blood of Europe is old and thin,"
she said. "Mere physical charms no
longer warm it. We need something
stronger, and 1 found it in the work- of
your Miss I lives. They tell me she i- a
fire-eater. And your Ella Wheeler Wil
cox. Is it true that she sleeps on a red
hot stove as the Eskimo do';"'
1 replied that such was common rumor
In the land of the free.
NATALIE CONTINUED.

JACK THE KIPPER.
The London Detective Who
Thought He Had Met Him.
I ran over to London last week, and
while there met one of the brightest of
the Scotland Yard detectives.
"We shall have the Whitechapel mur
derer on Christmas day," he said, at
which 1 laughed and told him that we
were within a block of him at the pres
ent moment.
1 took him by the arm and led him
to a side street and up to a quiet little
dwelling house, into which we were ad
mitted without difficulty.
Mr. Detective looked very startled
when, on my calling tor Dr. Scott Jones,
a plain-looking gentleman came into
the waiting room and smiled blandly as
1 introduced him as Jack the Kipper.
lie threw himself gracefully upon a
a seta, and. eyeing the officer, said:
"Ye.-, my coming has bothered you
gentlemen of the law some, but if you
are ever in Chicago I will make
amends."
"You doubtless know of the Snell
murder there and other crimes, so far
unfathomed. The skill of our detect
ive- was unquestionable, but lor some
time not a criminal has been deleted
by them. Our best citizens became
alarmed, and finally a resolution was
passed in the common council authoriz
ing the mayor to send a commission of
experts abroad for the purpose of study
ing European detective methods and
Utility. „ . ,
"This commission was given unlimited
powers and money, and full authority
to carry out any experiments desired.

Mv detective friend was ready to fal 1
off his seat. His hair stood on end and
the blood had fled from his face.
When we were outside, he gasped:
"His this a hoax?*'
1 shook my head and handed him a
card of the doctor's which 1 happened
to have.

GREAT RETAILERS TESTIFY.
Messrs. Browning and King, when
here ami in consultation with members
of the chamber of commerce, were much
impressed as to the value of St. Paul as
a great retail and wholesale point. They
regard a magnificent future as lying be
fore the Capital city that only time is
required to make a certainly. Their
own retail business, they find, has
doubled beyond their expectations, not
withstanding the backwardness of the
season. They are much pleased and
well satisfied with their new venture.
As to their eventually making St. Paul
one of their wholesaling points, it de
pends upon their being able to secure a
credit man of the proper ability— a ne
cessity that must be considered before
other plans take shape. They are posi
tive, though, as to the great value of St.
Paul's trade position, and to parties
holding real estate at the present time
say, "Hold on to it. St, Paul's becoming
the Chicago of the Northwest is only a
matter of a few years." They are so
confident of this that.in a short time
the proportions of their retail busiuess
will be enlarged.

PROSPERITY IX TRADE.
In my opinion the jobbing trade of
St. Paul has increased 15 per cent over
that of last year. I know in the case of
our own firm that for the eleven months
past of ISBB the total amount of our
transactions amounted to within ***-50
--odd dollars as much as it. was for the
entire twelve months of 1887. Such an
increase of- business has probably not
been kept up in all lines, but it has
been a good year, and the St. Paul job
bers have enjoyed an enviable degree
of prosperity." The opening of the
Sauk Ste. Marie road has given them
greater advantages in the transporta
tion of their stocks from the East, and
the lake connections have remained as
valuable as in the past. The prospects
for next year's trade are very good.

Addresses an Editorial to the
Public, in Which He Ex- j
plains,
-. '*-':;• \
And Then Signs the Decree of
Separation With a Smith j
& Wesson.
HE story opens in
1877, when, on an
April morning, the
yellow- haired
"devil" arrived at
the ofiice of the Jack
Creek Pizenweed at
7 o'clock, and found
the editor in. It
was so unusual to
find the editor in at
that hour that the boy whistled in a low
contralto voice and passed ou into the
"news rooms," leaving the gentlemanly,
genial and urbane editor of the Pizen
week as he found him, sitting in his
foundered chair with his head im
mersed in a pile of exchanges on the
table and his venerable 'Smith & Wesson
nearby acting as a paper-weight. The
gentlemanly, genial and urbane editor
of the Pizeweed presented the appear
ance of a man engaged in sleeping off
a long and aggravated case of drunk.
His hat was on the back of his head,
and his features were entirely obscured
by the loose papers in which they
nestled.
Later on, Elijah P. Beckwith, the
foreman, came in, and found the fol
lowing cony on the hook, marked
'•Leaded Editorial," and divided up
into "takes'* for the yellow-haired devil
and himself:
"In another volume of this issue
will be found, among the legal no
tices, the first publication of a sum
mons in an action for d'vorce, in
which our wife is plaintiff and
we are made defendant. While gen
erally deprecating the practice of bring
ing private matters into public notice
through the medium of the press, we
feel justified in this instance, inasmuch
as the summons sets forth, as a cause of
action, that we aie, and have been for
the space of ten years, a confirmed
drunkard, without' hope of recovery,
totally unwilling to provide for and
maintain our said wife.
"That we have been given to drink,
we do not at this time undertake to
deny or in any way controvert, but that
we cannot quit at any time, we do most
earnestly contend.
"In 1807, on the 4th day of July, we
married our wife. It was a joyful day,
and earth bad never looked to us so fair
or so desirable as a summer resort as it
did that day. The flowers bloomed, the
air was fresh and exhilarating, the little
birds and the hens poured forth their
respective lays. It was a day long to
be remembered. it seemed as though
we had never seen Nature tret up and
hump herself to be so attractive as she
did on this special morning— tne morn
ing of all mornings— the morning on
which we married our wife.
"Little did we dream that after ten
years of varying fortune we would to
day give utterance to this editorial, or
that the steam power press of the Pizen
weed
worm squat
this legal notice for divorce, a vinculo
et thoro. Into the virgin page of our
paper. But such is the case. Our wife
has abandoned us to our fate, and has
seen fit to publish the notice in what
we believe to be the spiciest paper
published west of the Missouri river.
It was not necessary that the notice
should be published. We were ready,
at any time, to admit service, provided
that plaintiff would serve it while we
were sober. We can not agree to remain
sober after 10 o'clock a. m., in order to
give people a chance to serve indices
on us. But in this case plaintiff knew
the value of advertising, and she se
lected a paper that goes to the better
classes all over the Union. When our
wife does anything she does it right.
"For ten years our wife and we have
trudged along together. It has been a
reeoid of errors and failures on our
part; a record of heroic devotion and
forbearance on the part ot our wife. It
is over now, and with nothing to re
member that is not soaked full of bitter
ness and wrapped up in red flannel re
morse. We go forth to-day and herald
our shame by publishing to the world
the fact, that as a husband we are a de
pressing failure, while as a red-eyes
and a rum-soaked ruin and all-round
drunkard we are a tropical triumph.
We print this without egotism, and we
point to it absolutely without vainglory.
Ah, why were we made the custodian
of this fatal gift, while others were de
nied-" It was about all the talent we
had, but we have not wrapped it up in
a napkin. .Sometimes we have put a
cold, wet towel on; but we have never
hidden it under a "bushel. We have put
ii out at 3 per cent a month, and it has
grown to be a thirSt that is worth com
ing all the way from Omaha to see.
We do not gloat over it. We do not say
all this to the disparagement of other
bright, young drinkers, who came here
at the same time and had equal advan
tages with us. We do not wish to speak
lightly of those whose prospects for fill
ing a drunkard's grave were at one
time even brignter than ours. We have
simply sought to hold our position here
in the grandest galaxy of extempora
neous inebriates in the wild ami woolly
West. We do not wish to vaunt our
own powers, but we say, without fear
of successful contradiction, that we
have done what we could.
"On the fourth page of this number
will be found, among other announce
ments, the advertisement of our wife,
who is about to open up the old laundry
at the corner of Third and Cottenwood
streets, in the Briggs building. We
hope that our citizens will accord her a
generous patronage, not so much on her
husband's account, but because she is a
deserving woman and a good laundress.
We wish that we could as safely recom
mend every advertiser who patronizes
these columns as we can our wife.
"Unkind critics will make cold and
unfeeling remarks because
OUR WIFE
has decided to take in washing, and
they will look down on her, no doubt,
but she will not mind it, for it will be a
pleasing relaxation to wash, after the
ten years of torchlight processions and
Mardi Gras frolic she has had with us.
It is tiresome, of course, to chase a pil
low case up and down the wash-board
alldav.butitiseasierandpleasanterthan
it is to run a one-horse inebriate home
for ten years on credit.
"Those who have read" the Pizen
weed for the past three years will re
member that it has not been regarded
as an outspoken temperance organ.
We have never claimed that for it. We
have simply claimed that, so tar as we
are personally concerned, we could take
liquor or we" could let it alone. That
has always been our theory. We still
make that claim. Others have said the
same thing, but were unable to do as
they advertised. We have been taking
it right along between meals for ten
years. We now propose, and so state in
the prospectus, that we will let it alone.
We leave the public to judge whether
or not we can do what we claim."
After the foreman had set up the
above editorial, he went in to speak to
the editor, but he was still slumbering.
He shook him mildly, but he did not
wake. Then Elijah took him by the
collar and lifted him up so that he could
see the editor's face.
It was a pale, still face, firm in its
new resolution to forever "let it alone."
On the temple and under the heavy
sweep of brown hair, there ; was a pow
der-burnt spot, and the cruel affidavit
of the "Smith & Wesson" that our wife
had obtained her decree.
The editor of the Pizenweed had

DRAMATIC GROWTH.
In my opinion, from a long residence
in St. Paul, I am certain, for the size of
the Saintly City, that her growth in the
direction of popular amusements has
been well up with her needs. The
stranger within her gates need not
lack for entertainmeut in the line of
theatricals.
THEY HAVE PROSPERED.
The Lombord Company, Though
Here Less Than Two Months,
Has Become a Recognized Fi
nancial Leader.
When the Lombard Investment com
pany decided to locate a branch office in
St. Paul and completed its arrange
ments for headquarters in the Globe
building it was apparent to those
familiar with the history of the large
financial corporations of this and other
countries that St. Paul had become the
Northwestern business center for the
largest loan agency within the limits
of the United States. Knowing full
well the business capacity and methods
of the Lombard company, the Glohe
predicted for them such success
as comes only from long experi
ence and the building up of
such a reputation as the Lombard com
pany has made for itself, not only
in the West, but the Eastern states as
well, during the past half-century. Go
to any part of the United States or
Great Britain and ask who the Lombard
company is, the universal answer will
be that it is* one of the largest and best
conducted financial institutions in the
world. Before an employe is placed in
a position of trust lie is known through
out as to ability and reliability, and that
same course was pursued in establish
ing the St. Paul office when Mr. 11. J.
Deuell was placed in his pres
ent position of general manager.
No employe is more familiar
with the working methods of the com
pany and none possesses more marked
ability.
While only established in St. Paul
since Nov. 1, the Lombard Company
lias already taken its place alongside of
the oldest and best known loan agen
cies in the city, all of which is a most
gratifying result, not only to the man
agement themselves, but also to the citi
zens of this prosperous city, who appre
ciate energy and enterprise as it is ap
preciated nowhere else in the world.
Tho Abiding Place of Busy Men.
A modern building represents in an
other form the same general organism
as a human body. The body has sys
tems of nerves, circulation and respira
tion. The beautiful building which the
Globe occupies in St. Paul, and the
still more beautiful one which it is to
occupy in Minneapolis, have features
which completely correspond to these
systems. In the first place, the electric
wires correspond to the nerves of the hu
man body. There is the annunciator sys
tem, telephone system, telegraphic sys
tem and heat regulator system of wires,
each having its own special function.
In the second place, the circulatory sys
tem is represented by water pipes,
steam pipes and compressed air pipes,
the latter serving, with the aid of the
electrical system, to regulate the steam
valves. By the way, the Globe build
ings are the first office buildings in Min
nesota to introduce the latest improve
ment in the perfecting of buildings.
This improvement consists in fitting the
building throughout with electric wires
and compressed air pipes, so related to
each other and to the steam valves that
a •'thermostat" on the wall of each office
controls the steam heating of the room.
By setting the thermostat at any cer
tain degree the steam will be automati
cally shut off from the room
when the temperature reaches the
desired point. It is likewise let
on the steam when the temper
ature falls below that point. Thus, with
out attention, the office is kept at a uni
form temperature. No attention is re
quired and the occupant ceases to think
of the heating apparatus, instead of be
ing obliged, as in the old way, frequently
to torn the steam on or off. The time
will come when not only first-class
blocks, like those built by the Globe.
but all others will use this device. The
invention is a Western one, emanating
from Milwaukee, and is cal led the .John
son system. The respiratory organs of
tin* body are represented in our best
buildings by the ventilating system.
The transoms and grates are the lungs
and bronchi! through which fresh air is
supplied to the army of dwellers in the
business hive. Instant communication,
swiftly running elevators, abundance
of light, pure air and a uniform temper
ature are the essentials of a modern
building. HUH
