All executions aro looked upon by tho lower J-'p-Tii'tr! as being excellent enter tainment. While torture has been r.omicr.lly abol ished, tho prisons themselves, combined Willi tho Fvstem, aro such that tho npony of tho culprit is continuous and long cn durinp. As far as j os: ible, tho Fnani.-h povern- ment r-etuls all of her prtaier criminals to her pvat convict colonies' in Africa or in the Canary or lialeano islands. Deporta tion to these penal colonies is made in the most shiftless and cruel manner. They aro shipped la antiquated ships. whieh aro overcrowded to tiio ver,zo of positive danger. Herded liko cattlo in pens, beaten liy ignorant and l;rui:U sol diers, they po to a living death in tho col onies, where stripes aro pivea moro often than food and w.'u-ro brutality is looked upon sn.uiititly by tho superior oflictrs.

Most of tho political prisoners aro sent to Ccuta, Africa. Ceuta is an old Moor ish seaport town in Marocco, onposito Gi braltar. It was built by tho Moors about 051, and it is probablo that there is no other ono placo in tho world whero so many devices of torturo aro concentrated. Ceuta is a very Email place, and the Moors constructed a chain of fortresses around it. It is In the cellars of these ancient and decaying fortresses that tho duntjeor.s aro located. They aro hewn out of tho solid rock, and aro in tiers to a depth of 61) or CO foet. Tho approach to them is mailo through narrow openings in the stono Honrs of tho fortresses, and when the horrible hole is opened tho foul odor is overpowering. These dungeons are inhabited almost solely by political prisoners, and many Cubans arrested during tho present rebel lion aro thero. tronio are in solitary con finement. Others aro in dungeons hold ing 3J or 40 men. When a man is placed In solitary con finement, a hole is cut in tho masonry larao cnotiEh to admit tho passage of his body, and be is dropped in. A blacksmith follows and welds on the fetters. Locks and keys are never used. A heavy weight with a chain is welded to tho anklo and an iron band is welded alxmt tho waist A chain attached to tbe latter is welded to r.n iron ring sunk in the wall cf solid nick.

An American variiy company appeared in Cunieas recently, under tho luunapo ment of Ccbaiios is TataiL It included Boverai good uerobalit and gyuinastio per- MISS MKSI3. formers and two sharpshooters, a man and wi.'e, odverii.-.d as Coleman and Mexis, who:;o wors: soon pocamo Hie taiK of tho town. Tho manager, Ceballos, who had a long experienco with B:irnum& Hailcy's circus in the United States, thought that it would iucre.iso tho prestige of his show if ho could have a privato exhibition of shouting in tho presence of tho president. Tho thing was arranged, and on Sunday mornirg Sir. Coleman decked his long lean body ia a dress suit, with a string of medals ia tho lapel of his coat. Miss Mexis dnnned a pretty dress with a skirt reaching to her kuces, a pair of top boots and a military cap. Mr. Ceballos, wear ing a diamond pin as largo p.3 an acorn, escorted them to tlio yard back of Santa Iuez, tho presidential mansion, where the targets wero put and all details at tended lo beioro theprvsirfent, and the per sons who happened to bo visiting him were railed out to sea tho shooting. Tho exhibition began with fancy shots at glass balls. Tim woman, Miss Mexis, broke bells her husband held in his hands. She grasped her rillo in all sorts of posi tions. She stretched backward, forward, r.p and down, and at each crack a bail was shattered. Coleman put a bail on liis head and rosed before tho target. Tin n Miss Mexis turned to Central Crespo and told him that she would deem it tho great est honor of her life if ho would placo the ball on liis head. Tho president we.s amused by tho propr.silion. IIo turned to tho manager and asked: "Js it, a safu thing to do?" "1 wiil unsv.-i r f. r her with my life, dramatically replied Celi.ilios. Very well," s.iid General Crespo. "I'll try it, just to show what ceniidenco I have in .orih Americana." Mrr- Cn-spo did not seem to feel the same eoTiiiileiino in tho woman, as sho tired without ecuing any inoro of the shooting. The president walked forward to tint target, allowed Culanian to arrange tho little black bail on h'u head, and then stood still, awaiting results. Mexis' hand was as suro as was that of tho traditional William Tell. Her rillo was directed to ward tho ball for a moment. Then crack! and shattered part ieles of glass fell about tho president. Tho rest of tho shooting was ot tho conventional order. A GENTLE DULL FIGHTER. Slisa Mae Melbourne Has Won Glory In the Arena.

The food that goes into it represents the fuel, and as it is burned or digest ed ashes or refuse results. Coal ashes arc harmless. roJy ashes are poisonous. Nature keeps the bars of our jrratc (the kidneys) constantly cleared and able to dispose of these ashes cast ing them out of tho body and into the urine. Now, beside the ashes of digestion we have the waste products of the tissues and organs. Every time we move a muscle.tutn our head, hit our hand; every time our heart beats, or our brain thinks a small portion of each organ thus employed is used up in the process. Ihese ashes or waste products are also poisonous. Both kinds clor and discaso the blood, and poison and irritate the various organs. if the kiduevs do not work prop erly these poiEons are not thrown out, but collect and do harm.

In England. ies, thero is undoubtedly a 6trong tasto jnst now for books cf fiction made up of Fhort stories sketches, they might even be culled. It is part of the spirit of tho time, which is foud of brevity in every form. Just see how the newspa tiers have been affected by this modo. In my early days tho London Times used to thunder in leaders a column and a half long ; now half a column often suffices. I think I may claim to bo tho pioneer m cntting down tho length of editorials in England. But in tho mat ter ot hction it Ecenis evident to me i that tho mental processes which pro duce a sustained, complete and logically elaborate novel are very different from thoso employed in the writing of a col lection of episodes, oven though they be of a common typo as regards scene and characters. Somo of your American writers do this sort of work admirably. Hall Caine. Russian Distances. One gets au idea of tlio magnificent distances of tho czar's realm from learn ing that a Russian general who was in a hurry to got to St. Petersburg from Vladivostok found tho time saving ronte was to go to Yokchama by steamer, thence by another steamer across tho Pa cific to San Francisco, by rail to New York and by steamer to Europe. The gap between tha finished sections of the Transdberian railroad is so many hnn drcdsof miles in length that the general would havo lost time in traversing the wilds of that vast country, where horses fonii.-h all tho transport.
