.r" & & Took Time by tlie Forelock. The funniest after-election story is told by Representative Hopkins, of Illi nois. In his district is the little cross roads post-office of Ivanhoe, over- which In Cleveland's administration, a Ger man democrat presided. When Presi dent Harrison came into power Mr. Hopkins had the democrat succeeded by a Teutonic republican, who died about a year^and a half ago. His wife was thereupon appointed postmistress. On the day after election the German democrat appeared at the postoffice. Cleveland has won," lie said, with ac* cenfs of the fatherland and of triumph delightfully mixed, "The post-office is mine." The widow, knowing that •Cleveland had been elected, and unsus pectingly believing that her official ca reer was ended, did not object when •her predecessor brought a big wagon and carted the entire contents of the post-office over to his store. He has been acting as postmaster ever since. Mr. Hopkins reported the facts to the post-office department, and an inspect or was speedily sent to convince" the -enterprising democrat of the error of his way.

The-business partner of one of the directors of the company formed to build the telegraph line from the Cape to Cairo has given a Pall Mall Gazette reporter some interesting information. Capital has been subscribed to the ex tent of $700,000, which is considered sufficient to carry the line as far as Uganda. The materials are now being ordered in London, and will be shipped shortly. The poles are to be of iron of light construction, in order to outma neuver the white ants, who'would eat away wooden poles. From Salisbury the line is to be carried to Tete, on the Zambesi, and from thence to Blantyre. There Consul Johnson will report the result of his surveys as to the best manner of proceeding on to Uganda, and the constructing party will have to come to terms with the natives and Arabs by subsidizing the chiefs and others of influence. There will be noth ing in the way of impenetrable under growths or rank vegetation to contend with, as the line will avoid the low country and keep to the high plateau the entire distance. Sitting: Down on -Him. A rather loudly-dressed "gentleman stepped into the necktie department the other afternoon and, in a super cilious tone that would have nettled a graven image into anger, uttered the single mandatory word, "Neckties!" and then drew back his head as if the clerk was entirely beneath his notice. MAY CQIAQ* but he quietly displayed a number of late patterns with a deferential air. Twenty-five cents!" haughtily snapped the customer. "Twenty-five cents! Do I look like a man who would wear a twenty-five cent necktie? Say, do I look like a twenty-five cent dude? Is there anything about me to indicate that I "I beg your pardon," meek ly interposed the clerk, but with a snap in, the corner of his cold gray eye, "the ten cent counter is at the other end of the room."—New York Commercial Advertiser. A IIiitie Awakening. He was a dreamy romantic young fellow from Tacoma, and he was doing the fair thoroughly, entering into the spirit of the thing, so to speak, with all his ability. When the purple shades of twilight were falling he stepped gayly into a picturesque gondola, adorned and propelled by a real, live gondolier attired in blue and white, with every detail of the Venetian costume com plete. Our westerner reveled in the charm of the hour and the surround ings. He threw hiniself into the spir it of ancient Venice and fancied he saw the bride of the Adriatic lying ghost like upon the sunlit-tinted waters. With a woman's artifice he tried to tempt the gondolier into song. It was in vain, however, for the solitary boat man at the stern was evidently think ing of his beloved Venice. The young man from Tacoma at last sought terra firma and as he soared, rather than walked away, he heard with horror the mystical gondolier distinctly re mark to his fellow in the bow: "Oi say, Moike, lind me a match, plase."—Chicago Mail.

His satir£ of "John Bull" was originally pub lished anonymously in, 1712 in five pamphlets or parts, which were all cpllected together in the "Miscel lanies in Prose and Verse" brought out by Swift and Pope in 1727. Swift's "Conduct of Allies," Jjeing published in the same year as "John Bull," made the latter easy reading for the public, who needed no further key to it. The war with France to prevent Philip of Anjou from succeeding to the whole Spanish empire, according bo the bequest of Charles II., the last, of the Spanish .Hapsburgs, is rep resented under the guise of a lawsuit commenced by two worthy traders— aamely, John Bull and Nick Frog (the Dutch)—against Louis Baboon (Louis XIV.) to prevent him from persuading young: Philip Baboon to transfer his custom to himself. The late king of Spain figures as Lord Strutt, and the contention set up by Bull and Frog was that con tracts existed between their firms and the Lord Strutts binding the lat ter and their successors to deal ex slusively with the plaintiffs for cloth and linen. Louis Baboon was trying bo induce the young man tosviolate this contract, and hence the action. The case is represented as being car pied from court to court and "tried pver and over again, the verdict be ing always in favor of the plaintiffs, without their getting any nearer to the termination of the suit. This, of sourse, is the doing of their attorney, old Hocus, who is feathering his nest it the expense of his clients, and naturally does all he can in secret to prolong the litigation. ^Hocus is the :luke of Marlborough,- whose numer ous victories, represented as verdicts, brought the allies no nearer to a peace and who certainly had excel lent pecuniary reasons for continuing the war. Many other personages are intro luced, but the above little sketch is sufficient to explain the ground plan Df this famous satire. The allegory, it must be owned4s rather far-fetched. But the fun here- and there is exquis ite, especially where John—herein reminding us of Mr. Saddletree in The Heart of Midlothian"—begins to fancy himself a great lawyer and asks himself why he was brought up tradesman. These aspirations are, Df course, meant to throw ridicule on the new foreign policy introduced at the revolution, when England, accord ing to the lories, instead of minding tier own business as a great naval and commercial state, aspired to take a lead'in continental politics, to fig are as a military power, and to miri* ?le in disputes on questions of inter* aational law. Human Faces Resemble Animals. Physiognomists tell us that the auman face resembles that of some animal. Those who remember the late Henry Bergh will have no diffi culty in recalling the equine profile and expression of his face- It was remarkable. George Eliot was an other blessed with the equine ex pression of her countenance. Dick ns' head and face was often likened to that of a fine dog. In England and America, where dogs and horses are more thought of and better cared Cor than in other civilized countries, we find more men whose faces are strikingly canine and equine in pro file and expression. Among success ful men we often see the piercing eyes and long, bent nose of the eagle. This eagle profile, so seldom found in men of commonplace talents, is much admired by physiognomists, but physiognomists condemn the eagle's face when a woman bears it. The vast majority of men and women of our race resemble sheep, and this accounts for the stupidity and sus ceptibility of the average man and woman. But those who think or have been told that they look like a horse or a dog must remember chat there are "balky" horses and some mighty snappy and miserable dogs. P.'ont/ of Perfume, But no Batktabs. The present craze for sweet sce'nts, like all the other elegances, dates back to the days of courtly luxury in France. Mme. de Pompadour spent $190,000 for this part of her toilet each year, and the court of Louis XY, was known.as the "scented court." Hostesses of the grand entertain ments informed thei^ guests what particular perfume \was to be' em ployed for scenting the rooms, that no other odors might be used by the guests. Apd at court a different per fume was prescribed for every day in the week. In the meantime the gos pel of soap and water was unknown to the finest ladies and the gorgeous palace at Versailles did not contain a single bath-room until one was ar ranged for the use of Marie Antoin ette. ., The Novelist's Hero.' The house "of a well-known lady novelist in London was the other day observed to be shrouded in the gloom of drawn curtains and lowered blinds. Sympathetic friends presently called to inquire what family affliction had taken place. They were admitted into -a darkened drawing room, where, clad in deep mourning and holding a clean pocket handtcerchief in her hand, th^ lady novelist sat w&eping upon the couch. A sympa thetic and inquiring murmur from the visitors elicited a fresh burst of tears aST the lady sobbedif^forth: 4'Affliction? Yes, I should think so.

As in every "gnawer" the beaver's skull is armed with two long,' chisel like teeth in each jaw, say£ a writer in St. Nicholas. These teeth are exceed ingly powerful, and are to a beaver what an ax is to a woodsman. One such tooth taken from the lower Jaw of a medium-sized skull (they can be re moved without difficulty, unlike the most of ours) is bent into nearly a semi-circle and measures five inches along its outer curve. Only one inch of this length projects from the skull. The corresponding ome from the upper jaw is-bent into more than a com plete half circle and measures upon Its outer face four inches, of which less than an inch protrudes from its bone casing. In width each tooth is five eighths of an inch. Examination of one of them reveals the secret of how a beaver can perform such feats as chopping down a birch tree sixteen inches in diameter, not to speak of softer woods like the basswood, of much greater size. The tooth is com posed of two materials. Along the outer face or front of the tooth is a thin plate of exceedingly hard enamel on the inner, forming the body of the tooth, is a substance called dentine, being softer, wears away with use the thin enamel remains comparatively unworn, so that the tooth assumes the shape of a keen chisel that never grows dull. The tooth is hollow at the base for half its length and is filled with- a nourishing substance which keeps it constantly growing. Thus, not only is the natural wearing away provided against, but a certain amount of wear becomes an actual necessity. With such instruments the beaver is admirably fitted for obtaining its natural food,. *he bark of shrubs and trees. TALMAGE IS SERENE. Stories Told About tlie Divine Do Not: Disturb His Equanimity. Probably no man in what may be called public life preserves his equa imity so perfectly when stories about him, with absolutely no foundation whatever, appear in the public prints as does Dr. Talmage. Two weeks ago a dispatch from Massachusetts announced that the rev erend gentleman had purchased a blooded pup, of most approved fight ing qualities, and although the story was entirely erroneous, no one laughed more heartily at the idea of a clergy man's investing iu a canine prizefighter than the pastor of the tabernacle.' Apropos of this story the doctor told of another experience of his, which evi dently amused him greatly, though some men would have been annoved by it, ''I remember," he said, "some years ago when I left home for. the summer one of the Brooklyn newspapers- came out with a long story about how glad the neighbors were to. get me out of the way for a few weeks. According to the story, I had purchased a cornet, and life had been rendered almost un endurable upon my block by the dtole ful sounds which I expelled from the instrument, often until late at highfe I don't remember," added the doctor laUghing heartily, "that I ever had a cornet in my hand. Certainly it never ocourred to me to buy one, or- to- tsy to play one." Brightest Part of My Trip* A New York fashion correspondent of a Southern paper gives out the fol lowing. A lady writes: I have read your letters for a long time,, and have often envied you the opportunity you enjoy of seeing the beautiful things you describe. I used to think when I read of those charming dresses and parasols and hats at Lord & Taylor's, that theirs must be one of those stores where a timid, nervous woman like myself, having but a few dollars to spare for a season's or.cfic, would be of so little account that she would, receive little attention but when you said, in one of your letters a few months ago, that goods of the same quality were really cheaper there than elsewhere, because they sold more foodsin in their two stores than any other rm New York, and that because they sold more they bought more, and consequently bought cheaper, I deter mined, if I ever went to New York, I would go to Lord & Taylor's. "That long-wai^ed-for time came in the early autumn, and I found myself standing before that great entrance, with those wonderful windows at either side. I summoned my courage and entered, as I suppose tens of thousands of just such timid women as I have done before. My fears were gone in an instant. The agreeable attention put me at my ease at once, and I felt as much at home as though I were in the little country store where my people have traded' for nearly a quarter or a century. "And now, as I wear the pretty things I purchased, or see them every day and find them all so satisfactory, I think of my visit to this great store as the hrisrhtest part of my trip to New York." A Sliglit Mi sunder stan dins* He had just received a letter from his son at college and was reading it aloud to his family, when he came to this passage: "I am taking lessons in fencing and as the'fee must be paid in advance will need another remittance." "Wa'al, now, that do beat all," said the old man, "what on airth does any body need to take lessons in fencing lor, I'd like to know? I've been fenc ing for forty years and never had to go to college to learn how." "But times have changed, father," said his .wife "fences ain't made as they used to was when we clim them in Root Hollow." "That's so," said the old man. "Ed don't say ef it's a wire fence or a rail one, but I reckon he'll lam both ways. But I vum, I never expected a boy of mine would hev to go to college to learn fencing.

Those« of the Moorish girls wisoee faces I saw were distinctly handsome they were the women Benjamin Con stant paints in his pictures of Algiers, and about whom Pierre- Loti goes into ecstacies in his book oil Tangier. Their robe or cloak, or whatever tlie thing is that they affect,, covers the head like a hood, and with one hand they hold one of its folds in front of the faee as high as their eyes. The only times that I ever saw the face of any of them was when I occasionally eluded Mo hamed and ran off with a little guide called Isaac, the especial protector of two American women, who farmed him out to me-when they preferred to remain in the hotel. He is a particularly beautiful youth, and I noticed that whenever he was with me the cloaks of the women had a fashion of coming undone, and they would lower them for an instant and look at Isaac, and then replace them severely upon the bridge of the nose. Then Isaae would turn toward me with a shy, conscious smile and blush vio lently. Isaac says that the young men of Tangier can tell whetfeer or not a girl is pretty by looking at her feet. It is true that their feet are bare, but it struck me as being a somewhat reck less-testing for selecting a bride.
