"In publishing a song its" success depends a great deal on the reputation of the comioser and the title of his composition," said Louis lierge, the composer of the Herald's march ':On Time," to me yesterday. "There is magic in a name with all due apologies to Shakespeare, and even if a song amounts to nothing a reputation can go to make it a financial if not an ar tistic success." "Do publishers pay for a good piece of new music?" I asked. "Very rarely, and then only if the composer is a man or woman well known. In such cases from $100 to $500 are paid for a song, and the com poser gets ten per cent, ol the royalties." "Do publishers take songs by un-i known writers if the latter pay for the expense of printing, etc?" "Certainly. That is done every day in the week. If the song is not a suc cess the publisher loses nothing and the composer has had some experience for his money. Now the Herald' march 'On Time' I am delighted to sav, is proving a great success. I am at present getting out a second edition and the composition is only three months old. And here is a song by a lady whose name is only known to her friends. It is a pretty, sentimental composition, and her first attemnt. It has caught the town and orders are coming lor it by the dozens. She gets three cents royalty on every copy sold and I think she's going to make a snug little sum oiu of it. "I understand that many composers of songs can not read a note of music. Is that so?" "Yes," replied Mr. Beige, "some of the most popular songs were written by men with no knowledge of compo sition. It is not absolutely necessary to le a musician in order to write a song. If you have talent enough to conceive a melody and can't write it down according to the rules of harmony, all 3-011 have to do is to goto one of the many musicians in this city who earn money by writing scores. You whistle or hum jour tune to him, ard he puts it in writing, ready for the publisher." "How do you push a song in order to make it popular, if there is any popularity in it?" "Well, before we put the song on eale we distribute nearly a thousand copies of it among singers and orches tra leaders. These people, you know, are alwaj-s on the lookout for something new. If they find the melody good and catchy, they sing or play it to their audiences. The success of the song then lies with the public."

One abode is built over and under the - other and to the right and lc It, giving them a strange and motley appearance, not unlike the recesses inhabited by bald eagles. There are narrow caves excavated into the side of the crumb ling volcanic rock, and in the bottom of each is some short, native grass, forming a bed in which to sleep. At the mouth of the cave and just in the interior fires are lighted, and here they warm themselves m the winter. Skins of diilercnt kinds are also suspended outside to keen out the snow and cold. ! In the summer the hardy natives leave their holes and live in odd houses made of poles, constructed near at liana on the edge of the cliff. rhese strange people are usually as ong and vigorous as can be found anvw here. Moreover, they are cm i rely contented nnd happy. They have no government, no chief, and no need of laws. Living m families and setting forth every day in their kinks lor the w hale, seal and walrus, they return each night to their caves, or pole tents, caring nothing for the outside world. Odd to relate, however, the prestige of the native is determined by the clothes he wears. As these consist of skins and constitute the wealth of the islanders, it will bo seen that they are not in this respect so much unlike civ ilized people. But the man with more clothes than anybody else has no more authority. He is respected for his sagacity, but thct is all. : er. O. Ii A JUS JU I 9 PHOIOGK Al'li EI!, KXhARHI.V; AN!

So you see a com poser does not risk much if his compo sition is a failure ; and if it proves a success, he is apt to make a fortune. Cat and Wolf. Work Delivered at Any Depot. JIKXTION THIS r. riai. JOHN SKIPWITH, 10GT and SHOE-MAKER, Youth's Comjxinion. An eastern gentleman travelling in northwestern Iowa had occasion to visit the stable of a hotel, says the New York Sun. In the yard he ran upon a furry ball which suddenly came apart dis closing a cat and another larger animal. The larger animal was a wild-looking creature, and snapped viciously to the stranger as he passed. "What under the sun have we here?" asked the traveller of his host. "Oh, that's Minny and her kid," was the careless reply. "Yes, I recognize Minny well enough, but what is the other thing?" "Why, didn't you ever see a young wolf before? This fellow is six weeics old. We caught him with three others over on the river bottom about a month ago. They had lost their mother, and Minny had just lost her kittens, and we took a notion to see if she wouldn't bring up the wolves. Four were almost too many for her, so we killed three of them, and since then everything has gone first-rate. Watch 'em now." The wolf, already twice as large as its foster-mother, was bent upon play, running and snapping at the cat and rolling her over and over on the ground. Finally, w hen she grew tired of this rough sport, she sat upright and gave the wolf's ear a cuff that drew blood. The young fellow snarled and snapped, but was still a little afraid to come to close quarters. "How long do you suppose it will bo before be eats her up?' asked the stranger. "Oh, he'll never do that," said the hotel keeper. "Ho gets a little cross now and then, but at bottom he is very foud of her." Something more than a month later the traveller was back at the hotel, and again went out to the stables. "Where are Minny and her kid?" he asked. The hostler pointed to a wolfskin nailed upon the door. Groceries AND CONFECTIONERIES. One Door North of Stem's, Main St. 7 O lv KC'TLAXD Nsck- N. C & j3 i M 1 P&r4 - - , f 4 PjMMi Isiilversily ! !
