Speaking of the at tacks made upon the government by the press, tiie chancellor exclaimed memorable occasion that as his ad ministration was so exposed to malig nant misrepresentations at the hands of its adversaries, he did not think it tolerable that be should be left unarmed against so power ful and so unscrupulous a foe. "1 must have means, he said, "with which to hunt those reptiles to their holes and destroy them there." Hence the so called reptile fund. which is simply an indefinite amount of secret service money at the disposal of Prince Itismnrck for controlling the press. With itsuid he is Stiidtohave organized a news service for the benefit of the German government, the like of which exists no where outside of the pages of the French novels which describe the spy system of Pouche. At its head stands Heir Hulstem, the ame damnee of Prince Bismarck, who has at his command a disciplined host of con' fldential reporters, who enable him to follow unseeu the movements of all bis adversaries. The great chancellor never neglects any foe, uo matter how insignificant. At the chancellery of the secret intelli gence bureau at Berlin, under Herr Holstcin, are kept the dossiers of every manor woman whom from time to time it thinks necessary to Prince Bismarck to watch with a view to ulterior developments. The minuteness of the information thus stored up for future use is very extraordinary, and suggest many uncomfortable reflections. A friend ot mine resident in Germany once had an opportunity of seeing his own dossier. There in be found set down ail particnlars of him self and his family and his relations. A list was given of all the people whom he was in the habit of receiving, and a detailed report of all the correspondents to whom he was in habit of writing. To this man. it was written. he sends letters every week, to the other every day, to a third he writes sometimes twice a week, and then ceases to write for a week or a month. But the possession of an indefinite amount of secret service money for purposes of cor ruption, and the accumulation from all the unseen channels o uniqni tons secret nonce or, a vast reservoir of information for use if re quired, an- by no means the only instruments by which iT-inee Bismarck keeps his press in good order. "How is it donet" exclaimed a wittv victim of the chancellor's surveillance. It is very simple. Borne -fine day all the editors of Berlin are summoned to the office of the oracle. They are told that the govern ment is in possession of such and such an important piece of information which is eotn- mnniented to them, not for publication, but in confidence, in order that when the oppor tune moment arrives they may be well in formed. A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse, and before very long one or other of the editors discovers in some mysterious wnv thnt the time has arrived when the cat must le let out of the bag. He lets it out ac cordingly, and all his brethern follow suit. and the news, true or false, in launched in due form." But what," I asked, "if an editor refuses to take the hint and obstinately abstains from circulating the official communique Tbpn,n was the reply, "it does not go well with that exceptional newspaper. Misfort unes always attend the journal which is fool- hardly enough to ignore a hint from above hat kind of misfortiinesr "Uh.ell kinds of misfortune. Dormant lawsuits mysteri ously reappear; official advertisements are withdrawn; pnvuegesof sale or of display, which depend upon the good will uf the ad ministration, are suspended. But perhaps the most efficient allies of the chancellor and bis myrmidons are the verniers of quack medicines tor the cure of unmentionable dis- " "How, in the name of wonder, can that be "It is very simple. In the father land the government charges itself with watchful solicitude for the morals of its sub jects. But as even Homer sometimes nods. so the most vigilant administrations some times fail to discover that the columns of German newspapers are defiled by the inser tion of advertisements of immoral pills or by the address of unclean doctors. W hen, how ever, any newspaper continuously opposes itself to the will of the authorities, the cus todian of public morals puts on his spectacles, and woe betide the unfortunate journal If in the obscurest corner of his badly printed page there should be discovered lurking an allusion to the objectionable pill or the dis- remitahle physician. The administration down upon him at once, and punishment is heaped on punishment until the editor con sents to dance to the piping of power. Then the custodian of public morals once more slumbers and sleeps, and the quack adver tises his pills in peace. Add to this that press prosecutions for press offenses are as plentiful as blackberries, that editors are sent to jail as felons for what would tie regarded in England as perfectly justifiable criticism upon the chancellor, that half the cities in Germany are under a state of siegp, and you can form some idea of the facilities which Pnnce Bismarck possesses for manipulating the journals of the father land. -FaU Mall Gazette. Sensations Experienced by remale Pt achat Flyer. I suppose a brief story on the way I jump would be interesting to you," said a female aeronaut. "It's all so simple to me, though, that I cant understand why it should excite people as it does, for I have actually seen women faint away and men tarn deathly pale after 1 had cut the ropes and started heavenward. You see, l always taite a wo downward when I am up a few hundred feet just why, I am sure I cant say. And right here let me tell you that 1 have sometimes singled out from the sea of upturned faces just the ones 1 knew were going to be shaded with disappointment should 1 fail to fall and be smashed to pieces. You may think the notion is all in my brain, but I have it firmly fixed there, at any rate, and I know there are such people in the world. "Where are we! Oh, yes, going upor rather, the earth is dropping away beneath our feet you know that is always tlie sensa tion. The parachute which we are to cut loose at the proper time bangs listlessly downward. The rope which holds it to the balloon passes through a steel ring. A sharp knife blade, worked by a cord, is so arranged that at the proper time a little jerk and we are free. "Now comes the exciting moment, even to the veteran. Above you the balloon, freed of the weight which gave it steadiness, is rock ing and reeling, while the parachute is whis zing downward. You did not feel that you were ascending, but as you shut your eyes and draw in your breath in little gasps a long drawn inspiration would be impossible you are fully aware that you are descend ingthat you are going with such frightful velocity, too, that unless there comes an end, and that end soon, the end of all things will beat hand. Prickly sensations shoot over your frame; and as you gasp for breath it seems as if a knife had been thrust into your vitals. Your thoughts are racing aleng with as great speed as your downward momen tum; your courage, too, commences to leave you, and you are threatened with a total coll apse death 1 "Suddenly the mad rush is checked. The parachute 'has grasped the situation,' so to S)eak. At least It has 'grasped' sufficient air to open it out, and as it gradually expands the motion becomes stead fr, until you are descending so slowly and gently that you ac tually have a sleepy sensation. And after the thrill, the shock of the moment before, the feeling is so dreamily delicious that really you are in danger from it unless you brace up and fiirht it off, for Mother Karto is shov ing her smiling but rugged face close at you am it really appears as if the earth came back to you. just as it seemed to recede and you must remember that you must be on the lookout for a safe landing place, and that more agility is required in this part of the feat than in any other.

Ice cream, cream cake or lemon pii should be eaten within twelve hours after they are made. In the case of a party or picnic where the ice cream is purchased from the confectioner particular inquiry should be made as to its freshness, and if it ts more than twelve hours old it should be unhesi tatingly rejected. Canned meats, and in fact all canned goeds, should be eaten or cooked as soon as opened, and under uo circum stances should they be placed in the refriger ator to be kept Tbey are cheap enough and can be bought in packages of any size, so that jthere is no necessity for opening more than can be used in one day by a family of ordinary numbers. In re gard to canned fruits said jams, if left for any length of time after being opened, fermentation seta in, and it continues in the stomach after tbey have been eaten. The practice of reboiling homemade preserves. which have begun to ferment, or "work," aa it is popularly expressed, cannot be recom mended, for, although frequently this may destroy the organism which causes the fer ment, it is by no means invariably the case. The cheap jellies which come put up in glass tumblers should never be used. Tbey are made from a very poor quality of gelatine, colored and flavored artificially. The color and flavor are harmless in the majority of , but the jelly itself is indigestible, and generally has begun to decompose, as shown by the layer of "moid" on top. Boston Herald.
