Probably a number of reasons may be assigned. The most respectable is indolent good nature; it is easier to say "yes" than "no;" to have tho tiles in your fireplace described as "Persian," and, at the same time, as the work of an Englishman, than to keep your drawing room for your acquaintances. This is the fairest plea for permitting your person and furnittvre to be exhibited to tho subur ban citizen who, honest man, prob ably never heard of you and cares very little about you. Again tho patient may really liko be ing talked about in public may on joy the idea of permitting all the world to know, as Mr. Allen says, "curious little details which might bo left to your con science, your cook and the commission ers of inland revenue." It is an odd taste, but it is ioss:lle that "the animals enjoy it." The interviewed may pre tend to complain, but may really re joice. The public ckx-s not mind it, tho patient is pleased, the interviewer earns his fee in tho way ho has lecn inspired to choose. All this may be admitted, but the plea of necessity cannot be admitted. Again, probably many of tho patients think an "interview" a g" d advertisement. They are brought before tho public notice; therefore tho public will read their books or buy their pictures. This is a sad mis take. The public which reads interv iews knows nothing about tho interviewed author and his works, cares nothing about them nor about anything of tho sort. "Here is gossip about somebody whose name I havo seen in the papers," eays the reader, so ho reads tho gossip, but there his interest ends. The theory of advertisement, of profit to accrue from a little more of personal notoriety, is a blunder. The public of this kind cares to know that an author squints, weighs 10 stone 10 or has a broken nose, or uses a thick handled pen; but as to what lie writes with that pen this kind of ptiblic is serenely in different. Where, then, U the necessity for admitting tho ' interviewer? Neces sity there is none, but indolence, vanity, love of notoriety, are likely to keep tho author of -".-t'.Tviews in full employ ment. Mr. Dlith-tfsiyt has added to his vol ume a defenso of his tirt, in which ho says practically that "Zenophon" in terviewed "Socrates." An author who talks of "Zenophon" falls a littlo short of tho universal knowledge which it seems is necessary for tho ideal inter viewer. London Saturday Renew. Gibraltar and Spain. It may be objected that, although Gib raltar might 1k5 useless to us as against Spain, it would still, in wartime, bo use ful to us as against any other power. It certainly might be useful to a very mod ified extent. It is nevertheless a matter of notoriety that Spain ardently desires to regain possession of the fortress, and it is scarcely conceivable that, unless we were actually fighting for the protection of Spanish interests, Spain would remain rigidly neutral while another power was attempting to expel us from the rock. In order to secure the more or less ac tive co-operation of Spain the other pow er would merely have to give some se cret pledge that, having enco gained possession of Gibraltar, she would hand it over without charge to its ancient owners. France, there is no doubt, would, with things standing as they do at present, bo very glad to see Spain take our place there, and though Italy might not like it she would not spend a single centesimo to prevent it. Fort nightly Review. Man ami Wolf Surprised. A hunter and a wolf had an interesting mutual surprise party to themselves in the hills near Helena a few days ago, The hunter, arrayed in a heavy wolfskin overcoat, fur side outward, was exam ining some traps set the previous night. He was stooping over one, rearranging the bait, when there was a fierce growl, and a heavy weight fell suddenly on his back, so that he barely missed being caught in his own trap. He managed to shake himself free, and recovering bis feet found facing him a full grown buf falo wolf. Tho wolf seemed quite as much surprised as the hunter, and they looked at each other some seconds be fore the fight, which ended in the death of the wolf, liegan. The brute evidently was fooled by the coat and the hunter's stooping position and mistook him for another wolf. Big Horn Count y Rustler. Curious Mode of Catching Turtles. A curious mode of catching turtles Ta practiced in the West Indies. It consists in attaching a ring and a lino to the tail of a species of sucker fish known as tho remora. The live fish is then thrown overboard and immediately makes for the first turtle ho can spy, to which he attaches himself very firmly by means of a sucking apparatus arranged at the top of his' head. Once attached to the tur tle, so firm is his grip that the fisherman on drawing the line brings home both turtle and tho sucker. Exchange. A Creature From the Fire. Aristotle believed that some creatures were capable of supporting life even though confined to the devouring ele ment. He says: "In Cyprus, when tho manufacturers of chalcitis (lime) bum it many dys in the fire, a winged crea ture something larger than a great fry is seen emerging from the stone and leap ing and walking about in the fire. Tbse creatures perish immediately upon being removed from tho furnace." St. Louis Republic. Good Authority for "lSouhten." "Eoughten" has the authority of age, example and well-considered use by Cole ridge, Southey and others. Still more weighty authority is found in a story told to us by Roscoe Conkling, who was pres ent at a fashionable hotel in Philadel phia thirty years ago, when a lady asked for tea. The reply was, "Will you have sassafras tea or bo lighten tea?" New York Sun. Oayly Decked Immigrants, . A picturesque party of Italian ImTrjfc fTanta landed at the barge office the other day. There were about a dozen men and six or eight women. The men wvre clothing of a rough, buff colored material, with scarfs and caps of bright er hues. The women displayed a variety of gay colors red, yellow, blue and pink predominating. Each woman was bare headed, but each wore ribbons in her hair and a bright colored shawl or apron. The strangers attracted a great deal of atteution as they straggled up Broadway from the Battery with their bundles. They evidently found as much novelty in their surroundings aa the New York ers found in their quaint appearance. The women apparently had the keenest observation and pointed out to their more stolid male comp inions various ob jects as the party moved along. At Rector street they saw a flower stand, and half a dozen of the women gathered about it and gave vent to volu ble expressions of delight. They dragged some of the men before tho stand and gesticulated violently. The men tried to pull away from them, but could not. After awhile some pieces of money came out of the men's pockets, and with much eagerness and chattering the wom en selected one flower apiece. The ven dor took his pay out of the handful of American silver tendered him, and the party moved on, both men and women as joyous as a lot of school children. New York Times. A Friend of the Farmer. The hop growers of Otsego county have discovered what naturalists have long been trying to make farmers under stand that skunks, instead of being their enemies, as they formerly supposed are among their most useful friends. As one hop grower expressed it, "Nowadays we protect skunks as carefully as we do song birds." Hop yards, it appears, are infested by a certain l.ii. l of grub which gnaws off tho tender vines at the root, and this grub is tho favorite food of the skunk. As a general thing the .skunks sally forth at nightfall, li;t now and then tin y are to be seen at work i:i broad daylight. The proceeding is an interesting one to watch. The skiiuk begins liisjuest on the edge of the yard, win re he cocks his head over a hill of hops nd Is.- Jens. If a grab is at work upon one of !;; f.r.ir trailing vines, his qnirk car is sure to hear it. At once he Kgi::.s u paw tip the earth, and presently he is sii-.i to r.ncover the grub and swallow it with unmistakable relish. Then he listens ::gain. and if he hears nothing proceeds to the ne.:t hill. And so lie goes oil till iie has li:ul his fill. Now that the skunks are no longer molested, they have become compara tively fearless. Sometimes, we are tol 1, they keep up their operations even while the. cultivator is driven between the rows.
