V 1 ft" I' Everybody knows that the Holy Rpirtt which on the day of Pentecost descended on the apostles in tongues of fire, in usually rep resented under the airy and charming form of a whifc) dove. From that came an old gastronomic custom whirh is not without its charm. In some parts of France they oe!e orata Whitsuntide by eatiue with evident relish at the family table a dne pi-reon stew or pie, which they piously sprinkle with the contents of bottles long under seal. Very Battering to the memory of the apostlea, this culinary homage, but doubtless less areea ble to the pigeons. But that is not the point of this sketch, which concerns a story, or EilJOT'a real adventure, which I witnessed In my boyhood. In tier pretty villa on the banks of the Loire, she Baroness Alice de Maifleury, an adorable widow of twenty-five spring had on Whitsnnday a quiet, social dinner party, at which was to figure, with honors, a pigeon pto prepared by her own delicitte hands. Chief among her invited quests was the young Capt de Snbresac, called by the ladies the handsome Rotawi. He was courting, openly and conspicuously, the pretty widow, t whom be was at one the suit and the mend.

This rogue of a handsome captain had as it were a Gascon mirage in his hrain. Dinner is announced, Roland offers his arm to the baroness. They seat themselves at the table. Immediately after the soup my cap tain begins to relate his feats of prowess with all his well known energy. Alice contracts her beautiful and finely arched eyebrows and bites her rosy lips. "So.my dear captain, yon have never known what fear was in your litcf "Never, baronesat except the fear of dis pleasing you. Otherwise I have always re mained as iinpassi ve as this salt cellar.' 'By the way," asks with curiosity the blonde Aliette rle Toisac, "wba- is that story tfboot the wolfr "Oh! a very simple affair. I was fifteen years old at the time. An enorroons wolf, driven from his den by snow and hunger, came one fine day into the court yard of the castle.

Then 1 come forward as though altotit to pick a strawberry, and I fasten a saucepan to the wolfs tail, then stepping back I clap my hands sharply. At the noise the game sets off dragging his tin ware, and he is still running. 'Bravo!n exclaimed the gracious Julia d'Artinsec, "and your wild hoar. It seems, captain, that you almost missed him." "Come now, I had left the military school at Saint Cyr to spend my vacation in the Ardennes with my cousin, Bernard de Haute futail. One morning I went into the woods to gather a bouquet of honeysuckle for my cousin Bertha, who has the prettiest foot in the world. Suddenly I caught siht of a boar asleep in his lair.

A rattle sounds in hia throat, he chokes, he is dead. The goatherd comes. I indemnify him for the lose, of the beast, which I leave there, reserving for myself only the hrns.n "As for me," cries the lively Renee de Puyfera, "I want my bear. I demand my bear." "I serve him to you, madame. I was in Switzerland, climbing a wild mountain in merry company. Boon I find myself quite a distance from my companion climbers, leing belated by my task of gathering roses." "Doubtless for your cousin Bertha," inter rupted the baroness. "No, madame, for my mother, who was kept at the hotel by a slight illness. I con tinue ray story, feuduenly I hear a fright ful growling. I turn and see a magnificent bear about to eat some strawberries. I call him by bis name. 'Good morning, Martin, look smart, my friend.

At the moment when he is about to press me against bis shaggy breast, I skillfully bury a little dag ger in his heart! The next day I invited my friends to breakfast on my adversary. The stakes, ladies, were excellent.11 "So," continued the baroness, "you hove never in your life experienced even a sus picion of fear? I regret it, captain.

What do you think about it?" "I think, madame, that they were much less brave than you are charming and witty." Here comes tho pie!" erica the Countess of BeauBoleil, clapping her bands. In fact, a servant had just placed on the vaDie an enormous pie, ou which was bal anced, according to usage, a branch of flow ering hawthorn.

Gould does not enro for display, though he relishes solid comfort ne lives plainly for a man of bis prodigious wealth. His town house, at Fifth avenne and Forty-eighth street, is a regular, double brown stone, which mirrht be owned and kept by a citizen worth $'J,)00,0(X) to 3,00u,(KM His country seat at Irvington is fine, with a magnificent conservatory and beautiful grounds; but he bonght it for a moderate price only a few years ago. You never hear of his enter tainments, or of hii wife's diamonds, or his assortment of carriages. He is more than indifferent to society, and Mrs. Gould is rig orously domestic. Contrary to the popular impression, be is well read, rather studious. talks intelligently, fluently, correctly, on a diversity of subjects, when in the mood. though temperamentally reticent He spends several hours daily in Ins library, and is ac quainted with works of pure literature that most persons would think him ignorant of. His manners are of the best. Ho speaks in a low, gentle tone; is entirely free from sumption or egotism, and has an air of per fect breeding. Dressed with scrupulous neat ness, usually in black, and with complete simplicity, he would not be observed in crowd. But anyone who studies the sma shguV aark man, dark eyed, dark hairf dark whiskered, will perceive in him unmis takable signs of intellectual power. He has the faculty of dismissing business matters altogether from his mind whenever he chooses. To see him in the family circle, be would never be suspected of being one of the greatest, most original, most daring, most successful of living operators. He is very charitable when properly approached. He makes it a rule to give at least $100 to any case which he has reason to believe genuine. A solitary by constitution, be has outside of his domesticity no companions in a social sense, being sufficient for himself. He has no small talk, and it is always noticeable that with others lie is the listener. His face, away from home, is inscrutable, and much of his achievement is undeniably due to his ability to keep his own counsel The mere making of money for money's sake ceased, years ago, to be an incentive with him. Love of accomplishment is his chief spur. Paul R. Cleveland in 1 ho Cosmopolitan. INWARDNESS OF WHEAT CORNER.

All of the milk that is delivered in the market of New York is at least from twelve to twenty-four hours old, and has undergone rough transportation of from fifteen to thirty miles in not strictly clean vessels. The cans used in bringing the milk to the city ace not cleansed until returned to their owner. By the time the milk has reached the poorer classes it has commonly undergone more or less adulteration, often m spite of the closest watching by the health authorities. In the course of its consumption by the average in fant, it is still further liable to lactic acid fermentation, and, even though boiled, it not unlikely to become scorched or made otherwise unwholesome for the infant Perhaps the most important objection to cow's milk, notwithstanding the fact that it is regarded as the nearest approach to mother's milk, is the difficult digestion of the caserne by the delicate infant whose stomach has been damaged by an attack of summer diarrhoea. 1 ms has necessitated the fawen- tion of numerous means and measures for overcoming the obstacle, the most common of which is the addition of some farinaceous substance, tiucb practice for an infant, pre vious to the eruption of its teeth, is con trary to tho provisions of nature, and, though occasionally successful, cannot be de fended as a general usage upon physiological principles.

Sliding Iown an Alpine Slope. In front of us were a large family of peaks Piz Morteratseh, Ptz Tchierva. the Cresta Aginza, Piz Zupo, Piz Palu, PizCambrena, and, dominating them all in pride and great ness, Piz Kernina, which has an altitude of UvOQ feet atiove i he sea. Tho sea of Ice which encircles it has a circuit of more than fifty miles, and its azure waves, piled up in defiles or crowdod into gorges, run down many steep inclines to the bottom of valleys. In places they pass between two rocky points, and, springing upward, remain sus pended over the abysB for a while. Then they break, their debris freeze into a solid mass and form a new glazier, which pursues its alow but sure onward march toward that point where the ice begins to melt and form the torrents that feed tiie great rivers of cen tral Europe. The Rhone, the Rhine, the Inn and theAar are among those which thus start from Alpine glaciers. The snow was cleared away from a rock and we sat down to eat our luncheon. Thus refreshed, we started for the lower world again. The guides unwound their rope, we tied ourselvis together, and then descended steep and dangerous precipices. By and by we reached a gentle incline covered with enow, and the guide halted us. Would we like some fuu( he asked. We answered that we were game fur anything, and we clustered around him. "Well, we will slide down this slope. There is no danger, and if the lady is not afraid of her skirts' "I am afraid of nothing," she interrupted. "Start as quickly as you please; I am ready." We all sat down on our great coats and wraps, the guides ahead, and Mademoiselle between me and her father, he holding by the legs and she holding mine. Then we started: the soft snow flew over us in cloudy spray; we descended swiftly, and at the bottom of the slope we picked ourselves up, shook the snow out of our eyes, and all declared ourselves delighted. A few minutes later we were down at the Morteratsch restaurant, where we found a carriage in which we rode to Poutresima. Cor. New York Times. The attention of two continents has been recently centered on B. P. Hutchinson "Old Hutch" of Chicago, the man who nas, single handed and unaided, conducted the great wheat corner. The commercial world is fa miliar with "Old Hutch" as speculator and merchant New England claims him as her offspring, taking cognizance of him at the time when he began his career in nortn Heading, Mass., forty-six years ago, when no was in the employ of Edwin Foster, a coun try merchant, at 20 a year. When not otherwise employed it was young Hutchin son's duty to mend children's shoes in the rear of the store. Aa Ben did not receive sufficient salary to satisfy him he obtained permission to open a boot and shoe shop in his employer's shed. Here be first evinced his talent for trading, always managing to get ahead of the boys who started oven with him. In l&Xi he found that there was money in the commission business, and took a hand in it on Pearl street in Boston. He remained there two years and removed to Milwaukee, and from there ho came to Chicago. With his commercial history from that time to the present every Chicagmn is familiar. With his personal characteristics, his peculiarities and his oddities his own city is not entirely familiar, as the subjoined stones will show: "There must be something in the character of B. P. Hutchinson which people do not un derstand," I said to a man who has enjoyed the friendship and known the peculiarities of Mr. Hutchinson for a quarter of a century. "Tell me something about him if yon can that the public doesn't know; something about him as be sees himself, for uo man can be anything, either honest or knave, without knowing in some of the hours of his existence his true character. - - 'P2iiS0XAL CUAuiCTTJlISTICS. "To be brief" said the gentleman, "the character of Mr. Hutchinson U kaleidoscopic. It is difficult to understand such a compound, I admit It requires a personal acquaintance, a business acquaintance, and a cursory ac quaintance to form an opinion of sucn a man." I shall not undertake to quote all the lan guage of the gentleman who talked to me about Mr. Hutchinson. From the conversa tion I make the following estimate: Mr. Hutchinson's foundation characteris tics are untiring activity, scrupulous fidelity to men whom te trusts, fortitude and sleep less determination He is intuitive. Some months ago, when he was confined to his home bv an accident, he made a study of the agricultural condition of the two continents. Most men in the sice room employ tneir time trying to make others about them mis erable. Mr. Hutchinson profited by his mis fortune. That is characteristic of him. The day came for him to get out of the house. He came to the Corn Exchange bank, and on meeting his son "Charlie," said to him: The world is short of wheat" He is al ways sententious, so that this creates, no marked impression. He went over to tho Century club, sat down and sent one thumb whirling over the other, as be often does when he is thinking, and said: "The world is short of wheat" The remark did not create any comment there. He went over on the board and met the breathless confusion of that place. In a fatherly tone, he said: "Boys, tho world is short of wheat The surging sea of speculation kept surg- I ing. The old man's voice bad no effect upon the storm. Let me quote the informant: UNDERSTOOD THE SIT CATION. "He had studied thesituation. He knew he was right He bad sounded the alarm. Strange to say, there were men who knew him as well as I who heard him say this, and they knew he was no alarmist or croaker, and yet they paid no attention to him. It is my opinion that the old man felt piqned at this apparent disregard of his forecast. Ho is one of the most sensitive men I ever knew. That Is something which most men will laugh at But it is a fact. I have known him to be stung by some light allusion in the press to his personal appearance, habits or characteristics. Some of the pictures that have been made of him and printed as cari catures have caused him pain. He was sen sitive, I think, that his remark on the condi tion of the world's wheat crop did not cause bbt efcn-ity. H moped nliont i for x or three days and then repeated the remark with amplification. He said, virtually: 'The crop is short; you had better buy now; I am going to run it up.'" Strange characteristic of the human mine'! It loves to take chances. All men are gam blers. They prefer to take circuitous routes. Mr. Hutchinson showed these men whre they could make fortunes, and they doubted him because he was frank. The informant con tinued: "When the old g.'ntleman saw that they didn't heed him, having given them every opportunity, he went on the stage, rung up the curtain and said, 'Let the play begin.' "The old gentleman is human like other men. He was hurt to think he was doubted. Ho didnt know why he should be, and when the rains came and the winds blew and there a devil of a time he folded his arms and looked on from a secure observatorv. That is all there is to this wheat corner. It is the alpha and omega of the whole business. If you care to look ii,to is you will find plenty of filling, plenty of side shows and branches and all that sort of thing. But you have the start of it and the end, so far as be is con cerned. "Chicago Times. Andtences of South America. How do Sooth American audiences differ from our own?" asked the reporter. "South Amencau audiences are very sensi tive to the good and bad points of a perform ance. W hile they wiii almost go crazy with enthusiasm over a great artist, they are not ashamed, as I have just said, to show their disapproval by vigorous hisses. A peculiar feature of the Brazil audiences is that the ladies have a fashion of promenading in the lobbies during the entr'actes, as men do here, chatting with each other, and criticising the good or bad point of a performance. Bra zil is an empire and Montevideo is a republic, due, singular enougn, you see more soldiers duty at the theatre of the republic than at those of the empire. I sup ose the reason of this is that Santos, the lato president of Montevideo, was shot through the head in the theatre, and this has made the Montevideans guard the theatres very carefully. Every night before the opening of the door a body of 100 soldiers up, and after the performance begins they are distributed throughout the house Fifteen bombeiros, or members of the fire brigade, also appear, and these are placed principally on the stage to guard against danger from lire.

It can be shipped more easily than canvas scenery you can carry dozen palaces m your trunk and still have room for a collar buttonand con be easily replaced if damaged or destroyed. It is pasted on canvas after it gets to tho theatre. It is, of course, very inflammable, and the precaution of having so many firemen con stantly in attendance is by no means an un necessary one.

Now there is but one legitimate way of making the heart strong. That is by taking regular, systematic and sufficient muscular exercise, into which clinibinc heights or stair- ' cases enters as a prominent feature. Let a person who finds his pulse increased fifty to sixty beats in a minute after mounting' a staircase climb a hundred staircases day after day for a month or more and he will find that the exertion does not add ten beats to the normal number of his heart throbs. The exercise has acted upon this vital organ just as it does on the biceps of a prize fighter or a blacksmith, and strength and the capao ity for endurance have leen the result. But this is not all the good that will be gained by climbing a hundred etalrcaaea a day say fifty iu the morning and fifty in the afternoon.
