The Swift-Winged Messenger Per form Good service In the British Provinces A Unique Con trivance. In the economy of an evening news paper, in the British provinces at all events, the carrier pigeon plays an im portant role as messtnger. For newspaper purposes there is not much advantage in Hying birds from great distances. The Edinburgh Even ing Dispatch has some notable birds. Except on rare occasions, these are never flown further than 20 or 25 miles. Their work, as a rule, lies nearer home in carrying to the office in Cockburn street reporters' copy from the many cricket, golf, football and sporting fields that encircle the city, and which, with one or two exceptions, are not in connection with either the telegraph or telephone systems. Every Satur day, which is the great day for sports in the Edinburgh district, as many as 3l) or 40 birds are requisitioned as mes sengers. On the morning of the days when they are to be worked the pig eons are sparingly fed. Like school boys liberated from school, pigeons, if they are hungry, will likely hurry home, and when they do arrive there is always a good feed of peas or maize awaiting them. The reporter writes his copy on what is known as "flimsy" a light oiled paper, and uses carbonized paper to obtain a duplicate. The "flimsy" is attached to the leg or legs of the pig eon by means of elastic bands; and at football and cricket matches the toss ing of the birds from time to time is always watched by the crowd with great interest. The arrangement at the newspaper office for trapping the birds and taking the copy from them is rather ingenious. In the Dispatch ofit?e, for example, there is a clear fly in for the pigeons, through the cus tomary arched opening, into a small, well-lighted compartment of - their loft. The floor of this small chamber 1a a movable plate, nicely adjusted so that the moment the pigeon, alights upon it two things occur. The weight of the bird liberates a catch and a wire portcullis noiselessy falls and closes the entrance. At the same time, an "electric circuit is formed, and a bell riiipi in the subeditor's room to pive notice of the arrival of the lird. The pip-eon is thus its own jailor and he r- aitl. Un neartng the bell, a boy in at ti cdance runs to the loft trap, takes the copy from the bird, and, through en inner door, allovis it to enter the loft proper, where it is at liberty to regale itself after its labors. Birds do not always come straight home, and even when they do so, they do not al ways hurry into the trap. If the day is fine they will sit upon the roof in the sunshine and dress their plumage, and occasionally they will amuse them selves by picking the "flimsy" from their legs, that being done when it has been carelessly put on. In these cir cumstances, when the subeditor is waiting a racing or football result, his remarks on carrier pigeons and their playful ways are apt not tobe of a com plimentary character. It is then that the duplicate comes in handy, for, aft er the pigeon has been dispatched, the reporter endeavors to send' the copy of the message that it carries to the nearest railway, car or telegraph sta tion by hand messenger. In Edin burgh, good newspaper work has been cone by using carriers in connection with events occurring on the Firth of lorth. It is obviously of great im portance for an evening newspaper to receive messages from a reporter who may be several miles from land. 'When the czar recently came to Leith, a re porter went down the- Firth to meet him, and sent intimation of the ap proach of the imperial yaeht by car rier pigeon. London Sketch. ON HANDSHAKING. It I Hot the Proper Thing; to Invart- sMr Orasp Person's Band. When to shake hands and when not to shake hands are questions frequent ly asked. The subject is a many-sided one, and cannot be disposed of by a yea or a nay, or by a hard and fast rule. It is a trite saying that circumstances al ter cases, and yet this adage exactly ap plies to the matter in hand, as it entire ly depends upon, the circumstances of the moment whether a hand is extended or a bow given. Thedifliculty of not knowing whether to shake hands or not arises when first introductions are made, and again at subsequent meetings between women but recently introduced to each other and on many like occasions, such as when strangers are brought in contact with each other when staying in a coun try house together, or at afternooapar ties, dinner parties, and so on. This question of when to shake hands wholly relates to the foregoing situa tions, and is outside of the handshak ing customary between friends, to which no reference need be made, as they shake hand with each other on meeting as a matter of course, and again on parting, with this reservation, that at a second meeting on the same day the act of shaking hands is not re peated. The term "shaking hands" is still ia r fnfA n E iv w Makes the food more delicious and wholesome SCVAt SAKINQ POWWS CO., NFW VORK. use for want of a better one, but as far as the word "shaking" is concerned it is almost a misnomer, and "taking the hand" would be a more explicit expres sion to apply to the fashion of the pres ent day. When an introduction is mode between two women, whether they shake hands or not is determined by side issues. Generally speaking, the re ceived rule is not to do so, but only to bow, but then follow all the various ex ceptions that induce women introduced to do otherwise that is to say, to shake hands at once. r AVhen a girl is introduced to a mar ried woman, for instance, by a mutual friend, tho married woman may or may not shake hands with the girl; she prob ably will do so if she is good-natured, but she is not certain to evince this amount of cordiality. But if the intro duction is made by a relative of the girl the married woman dees net hesitate to shake hands, but in neither ease would the girl take the initiative of shaking hands. When a man is introduced to a wom an, again the exceptions in favor of shaking hands come in as against not doing so. For instance, if the mr.n in troduced is the husband or brother of the woman making the introduction it would be natural to shake hands with him, almost imperatively so; but were he a mere acquaintance it would be most unusual to shake hands with him on first introduction. After a little short and desultory eonvc.f alien has taken place between two women or be tween a woman and a man just intro duced to each other, the doubt arises whether they are expected to shake hands on taking their departure; neith er do they shake hands at future chnnce meetings, should they occur, unless meetings under exception.".!!- favora ble circumstances for promoting ac quaintance at the houses of mutual friends and at social functions, etc. On the other hand, the hostess shakes hands with any and every guest brought to her house by her friends. She does ko on their arrival nnt on their departure, and again at any subf-quent t;uet;r.r if t.he happens to reeoll'.'Ct tl'em, which is Bet -always certain "O be the case. As regards dinner guests, when a man is introduced to a woman for the purpose of takiefr her in to dinner she f.0f:s not shake hands with him. but Eerely bows, and. however weii they may have got on together during din ner, she does not shake hands with him later on in the evening, when taking her departure. Indeed, the rppcrtunity seldom occurs for even bowing to him. At a second roeet'mr: bows only are in terchanged, and it much depends upon circumstances whether the acquain tance ripens into shaking hands one or teases altogether. Little handshaking occurs between guests staying at a country house, they do not do so on first introduction by their hostess, neither when separating on the first evening when "Good night" is said, nor on coming down to break fast. They shake hands with their hos tess each morning and evening, oc casionally with their host in the morn ing, and generally so in the evening. and if they become interested in each ether and are inclined to be friendly they shake hands when before men tioned "Good nights' are said.

A Little Queen'a Ixniellnes. Although the queen regent of Hol land has brought up her daughter as simply as possible, yet there is always a certain- amount of .ceremony and royal etiquette, which must need be considered. The life of a queen is not all that can be desired. A little story is told which pathetically illustrates the loneliness of this little queen's early childhood. Wilbelmina when a small child was once overheard by her gov erness while scolding a favorite doll as follows: "Iow, be good and quiet; be cause, if you dont, I will turn yon into a queen, and then youll not have any one to play with at all!"

Fancy Fireworks Were Made Two Centuries Asa Oat the More Artistic Kinds Are of Recent Origin Kngland la the Greacaat Prodacer of AU Nation, The day on, which the Declaration of! American Independence was signed it is likely that in all Philadelphia there was not one timid torpedo or one fix zing firecracker and that the clumsy flintlock pistols of the day were too un safe for anyone to use who was not forced to. The celebrating was done by the "grown folks." In 1097 $60,000 was expended by the English in celebrating the peace of Ryswick and in 1748 the treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle was occasion for a demon stration which equaled the previous one. The centennial anniversary of the reigning family of Britain was cel ebrated in 1814 by a great blaze of fire works. Still further baek, several cen turies before Christ, Greek fire was a common weapon of warfare, vessels be ing equipped with a contrivance for throwing barrels full of this almost un quenchable flame at antagonists and it being also employed in the storming of fortifications. This is believed to be the germ from which the pyrotechnics of the Europeans have sprung, for al though the Chinese thousands of years ago burned their fingers with fireworks credit is not due them for the thousand and one rattle-ti-bang whirring sizzing devices that wake us at early dawn oa Independence day, drive dogs into the quiet and seclusion of the cellar and cause nervous prostration among timid mammas and horses. Two hundred years ago .European ingenuity had surpassed the mildly ex hilarating popping toys which in China make their appearance in such profu sion t tlit new year. Cae John Bab-' insrtou, an English "gunner and stu rient in niiitiienititic.s," os he sub srrilwd himse'f in the bock he wrote on the art of pyrotechnics, planned und e.couti.-fi some very creiiitAblc rockets and pinwheels. In his book he de scribes ia glowing phrase the possi bilities of the fiery thing's, and though imagination went fartht-r on the Bufbject than did, his skill his prophe sies are much more than fulfilled, for such an array of improved "nigger"-' chasers," sophisticated fire pots and superrefined Roman candles was never spread out, hung and stacked up be fore the wistful eyes of the insatiable small boy as ia this year. Notwith standing that fireworks by no means' primitive were used 200 years ago, the art of coloring the flames in rainbow hues is but 30 or 40 years old. Charcoal and zinc in the explosive compounds; produce the glowing sparks; antimony and tin, white flame; mercury and cop per, blue; soda, yellow; strontium, red,' and chlorates, green. England remains the greatest manu facturer of fireworks, notwithstanding; the strides which the United States has made in late years. The masiufactuiv" ing is done, not in great factory build-" ings, but for safety in small houses SO feet apart, and the greatest care ia exercised to prevent smoking or the carrying of matches about the prem-! ises, there being a statutory penalty of ten pounds sterling for any such of fense; and no more material is issued from the magazine to each crew than is needed for each day'B needs. The en tire world is the buyer from John Bull and Uncle Sam of these noisy jimcracks and umptarrarra toys even the Chi nese, for when they want any really" fine fineworks they send to England or" to the home of the American small boy" and Hland of the free" for them. ChK cago News. Woman's Rights tn Australia. In western Australia they prnsh the) equality of the sexes to a conclusion that would satisfy even very ardent equal righters. There the men folks act on the principle that if women de mand men's privileges they must take with them men's responsibilities. Ac cordingly, a bench of magistrates have charged a woman with deserting her husband, and what is more, they have sent her to prison for a month because1 she steadfastly refused to contribute toi the domestic comfort of her life part ner. A philosopher once remarked that human beings should have a care for what they wished, for that thing would surely come to them. The equal rights sisterhood had better take warning1' from their Australian cousin's plight or they may get more than they desire in the way of equality. N. Y. Sun.
