BEVOLUTION NORMAL, South and Central Americans Never Pleased with Rulers. .Affltatora Flourish aad Often Sets tae Reins of Government Ueyo latloa Result la Sceaia ef Batckery. Revolution is a perennial instituf ion in" Central and "South America. ' The southern republic that does not have its uprising once a year feels that it is losing something. It is not always nec essary that there should be just cause for;- a political upheaval, but only that some general may experience a hanker ing for the executive office, or that ome president may wish to become a dictator. In such cases the agitator gathers a following, issues a proclamation and seizes the reins of government if he can. He kills as many of his nemies as he can, in the name of the republic, andholds sway until some other fellow comes along and ousts him. Or, if un successful after a few skirmishes, flees the country and later is found starting a revolution in some neighboring state. The revolutions are not joking mat ters, however, for those engaged in them. They mean business while they last and are usually attended with scenes of butchery and the utmost tyr anny. They cause a great deal of trouble for the United States govern ment, too, as the upstart revolutionist leaders usually think it is incumbent upon them to tread upon Uncle Sam's coat tails at some stage of the game, says the Chicago Chronicle. Revolutions have been so frequent in Central and South America in recent years that they are looked upon by this government as a matter of course. The United States consul telegraphs the ! state department that a revolution has 1 broken out. The secretary of state, with a. sigh of weariness, walks over to the navy department and asks that a j ship be sent to the port nearest the .' scene of the trouble. The navy depart- j ment complies, and the senior naval officer brushes up on the instructions I made and provided for such cases. He ' knows just what he will ;have to do, s for if he has been long up on the sta tion he has been through many such insurrections. He lands a few marines and then de- j votes the rest of his time to seeing to j it that the belligerents do not ransack j the American legations and consulates j and seize American merchant vessels j in their search for fleeing officials. 1 The weaker parties often make a break for protection under the folds of the American nag wiieu uimirs uecome critical, and it requires a great deal of watchfulness to prevent the pursuers from violating the right of asylum. Thev are not always successful in this, for the victorious generals have a wav of shooting their victims first and then discovering afterward that they have infringed the rights of neutrality. Profuse apologies and a salute to the American flag and damages follow. But that does not help the dead man. It has long been a study with official of this government what it is in the make-up of the Central and South American peoples which renders them so susceptible to the charms of the rev olutionist. Of course, most of the gov ernments are bad enough, but there are few instances where taking up arms has bettered conditions among these fiery little republics. It seems to be from a natural inborn desire to fight and to make trouble. As soon as the killing is over they dwell together again, the opposing sides, in brotherly ( love until the next revolt comes along, ; and likely as not the contending par J ties then swap positions and fight against the men they fought for be j fore. 1 The tendency to such disturbances seems to be inherent in the blood of the Lfitin-American people. This is prob ably in part due to their excitable tem perament. But men who have studied the question are inclined to think it is to a still larger degree attributable to their race history and tradition. Their governments are often republics in name onl-. One difficulty with the South Amer ican peoples is that they have under taken to erect republics upori the civil law of imperial Rome and upon mon archical traditions. They have framed superstructures in the shape of writ- T ein nnnctirnfinne TvikHalaf ii mnnw stan- nft.r fhft fimistl.fjlHnn J ihfX of time because their foundations have been faulty. The list of revolutions might be ex tended almost indefinitely. The his tory of South America consists of little else. They are all of the same general character.

The bottles or flasks used for trans porting quicksilver are generally made of boiler iron and are cylindrical in shape, about 12 inches in height and four inches in diameter, with a screw plug inserted in one end. The capacity of a flask js 76 pounds and its weight about 14 pounds. Such flasks are used by all producers of quicksilver, and pass through the hands of various dealers till they reach the consumer. The total num ber used in this country cannot be very large, as the total product last year of quicksilver in the United States was but 28,879 flasks, and the same flask can be used again and again till it gets too rusty inside. A flask can easily last,25 years. Wo un derstand most of those now in use are made abroad, but an American firm also has made them. Most of the second-hand flasks can be bought for 25 or 30 cents apiece. I Nevr Form of Phoaogrrapa. j Among the exhibits at the Paris exposition was a phonograph, invent ed by Valdemar Poulsen, a Danish en gineer, which uses a wire-wound in stead of a wax-covered cylinder. The ' wire is of steel, and over it, in place ' of the usual stylus, passes a small electro-magnet connected with a tel ephone, transmitter and battery. The sound waves cause a variation in the intensity of the electro-magnet, and the magnet, acting upon the wire passing beneath it, leaves a perma nent impression upon the' latter. Upon reversing the action the wire reacts on the magnet and correspond ing sounds are transmitted by the tel ephone. In order to obliterate the magnetic trace on the cylinder it, is only necessary to revolve it under the magnet while this is subjected to a continuous current. Discontented Tories. The number of discontented Turks must be enormous.

PRONE TO HAVE APOPLEXY- Keeeat Evidences That Clergymen Are Peculiarly Subject to This Fatal Disease. The number of sudden deaths oc curring lately among ministers is worthy of passing note. Why this sTim-ilr? Vip. w 5 Tint, pnsr fr pvnlniii j Certainly none of the penalties per- taining to dissipation and high living that directly invite physical decay applies in their case, says the Chicago Chronicle. It is true, most of them have hard j work and comparatively poor pa-y, I with the attendant overstrain and tire ' of the life struggle, but there seems ; to be no good reason whj- their or j derly lives should not in a great meas , ure counterbalance mental and bodily ! stress. Notwithstanding all this the clergymen wear out comparatively early. . For some reason not equally ex plainable with other brain workers, there appears with them a marked proclivity toward apoplexy. Perhaps this is in part due to continuous and exacting mental drudgery along neces sarily limited lines. But this was hardly the case with the Brooklyn pastor who added to his other qual ifications that of a well-merited repu tation for outside scientific research. Death in his case, as is common in some forms of apoplexy, came to him with startling suddenness. While pre paring to make a call and standing I in his doorway, he merely "straight ' ened up and then slowly sank to the floor." Evidently a blood vessel of large size in the substance of the brain gave way and killed him as in stantly as the bullet from a rifle. The preliminary spasm thus explained it self. There was no warning. In fact, as is often noted in similar. instances, the man had previously said that he felt unusual!- well. v . BABOO ENGLISH. Title Given to Ornate Lmsnaga Partly Educated Natives of India. , of Baboo English is the descriptive title given to the extremely ornate language in which manjr two-thirds educated natives of India express themselves. The magazines and news papers of India are full of it. One pe riodical says of a certain lawyer'n plea: "His childlike simplicity fas cinated all. and was proof against the demoralizing influences of his honor able profession." The late G. W. j Stevons gives an example of baboo t English in his book, "In India." It is : a feeble effort to express admiration for the speech of President Madan i Mohan Malavayya at a native con gress. His speech, is as mellifluous as his name. He has a sweet . voice and is one of the most enthusiastically wel comed of men on the congress plat form. Neither tall nor short, not stout but thin, not dark, cVressed in pure white, with a white robe which goes round his shoulders and ends down below the knees, Mr. Madan Mohan stands like Eiffel's tower when he ad dresses his fellow congressmen. He stands slanting fof-ward, admira bly preserving his center of gravity. His speeches are full of pellucid and sparkling statements and his rolling and interminable sentences travel out of his mouth in quick succession, pro ducing a thrilling impression on the audience. There is music in h.is voice: there is magic in his eye; and he is one of the sweet charmers of the coa gress companj'. AN AMERICAN PEER. Loral FftfrTax Disdained tls Title aad Lived and Died in America. A couple of months ago brief men tion was made of the death of Dr. Fairfax, a prominent citizen of Mary land. Few knew through informa tion gleaned from the doctor that he belonged to one of the most distin ' guished families of England. No man ever bore his title with less ostenta- tion, for neither he nor his' elder brother, from whom he inherited the j peerage, would ever take measures to have it confirmed-. The settlement of the Fairfax family in the United States dates from the time of the sixth baron, although several "niem bers had previously come to .reside, here. . The late peer lived .the life of a gen tleman farmer in the south. The only title by which he was known-was that of doctor, which he obtained as a grad- ! uate of the medical school of the Uni versity of Pennsylvania. When he Was a lad he left Virginia and moved to the heights of Georgetown, where he re ceived his. first education. He grad uated from Princeton, and later be came a doctor oi mecicme ana rejemea his mother at Washington. When the f war of the rebellion began his family, as southern sympathizers, found mat ters so disagreeable for them that they moved to a point near Bellsville, in Maryland. Thenceforth Dr. Fairfax, who had married the daughter of Col. Kirby, of the United States army, re sided on the lands and modest fortune which descended to him. Female Electioneering: Dodge. The Primrose Dames of England re sorted to an artful' dodge on behalf of The conservatives at the recent elec tion. They flooded many cr-iistiiuc-n-cies with circulars that under the four years of Salisbury's administra tion there had- been 33.S3G more mar riages than during the previous four years under the liberal party. If is believed that the circulars had no in considerable 'effect' on the campaign. From London to Paris'. There "are five routes from' London to Paris. ; ' v THE BEITISil EULE. HaV a Knack of Getting Into ' Power in Other Lands. ! Notable Iaataacea of Such Rela la Stmiiavage Countries Dsapotle Coatrol Exercised by Self Made Klngra. Not only does England govern many peoples on her own account, but Eng lishmen seem to have the faculty of ingratiating themselves with still other nations and practically running them. The most conspicuous of these Britons just now is Sir Robert Hart, who controls the customs service of ' China. His name and the story of his rise and achievements have been in the newspapers so much recently that it is all familiar to the public, says the New York Press. In his po sition Sir Robert has' nothing to do with England, yet he has contrived to do a good turn to his native land many times. One time when Russia wanted to advance China a loan and thus get China in her power, Sir Rob ert checkmated the game of "Adam zad, the Bear That Walks Life a Man." Corea, the peninsular country that juts out of China, has been managed for years by McLeavy Brown, who holds immense power in the land. He is a private Briton, like Sir Robert Hart, and has the customs, finances, government and practically the na tion in his hands. He rescued the country from bankruptcy, showed the king how to reform the army, swept away official swindlers and leeches and made a happy and prosperous nation of a country that had been in a bad state. For a case of despotic power wielded by a Briton, there is an instance near er home. John Finlaj-son, who died a short time ago, ruled a large part of Morocco and was by a long way the most useful ruler the country ever had. He was a Scotchman, and had a knowledge of the Moor and) the Arabic language that was unequaled by any man who ever lived except, ! perhaps, the traveler Burton, j He was originally a mining expert, and he opened and worked some tin mines in the back country for the benefit of the sultan. He became a close friend of the monarchy who made I him practically a ruling viceroy,, who ( did the work and took the credit, leav . ing the sultan to amuse himself with 1 out the anxiety of governing, i Finlayson remodeled the army, re-i formed! the revenues, and soon Moi rocco began to flourish. He did what no sultan had ever been able to doJ kept the wild tribes of the interior m something approaching order. Piracy and robbery he weeded out to a large extent, but it was impossi ble to stop them altogether.. He paid off the national debt of $10,000,000 and increased the nation's revenues from $750,000 to $2,500,000. He lived the life of an Arab chief, but kept to the Christian religion. He was obliged, however, to conform to the ceremonies of Mohammedanism, for he was too tactful to excite preju dice. The nation at large really thought him an Arab by birth. He was always traveling about the coun try with his suite, turning up unex pectedly. He held the chief post of justice, and was feared and esteemed as no native subject ever was. When some of his unruly subjects raided Spanish territory and nearly caused a war, he pulled his adopted nation through the fix and paid a small in demnity. Once every year he visited his native town of Aberdeen for a week. Morocco misses him sorely, now that he is gone, and the coun try's prosperity is not what it was. He died of fever caught in the Tetuan swamps, and his funeral was honored even more than a sultan's. Morocco did not know he was the son of Scotch tailor, but so he was, and a a great man into, the bargain. Be re- mained a subject of Victoria up to his death. Kipling's famous story. "The Man; Who Wouldi Be King." is founded on fact. An ex-civil servant, Cowper, who had come to grief in his profession, obtained the powers of a monarch in Kafristan.

The ! Kafris are one of the cruelest and most turbulent racris on earth. Yet this man, who went there without fol lowers ,or money, was actually in stalled as king for a short time. He was master of the Kafri language and manners, and managed to-et himself accepted as a sort of godi ' While he was king he did the thing thoroughly and governed well; also surrounded himself -with mnnpv horses and servants. His reign, which j yvas popular while it lasted, gained for him the reverence of the people, for they believed him to be a genuine deity, and worshiped at a temple he had erected to himself. He estab lished the beginning of a "great horse trade with Afghanistan, which has flourished ever since, and . the coun try certainly prospered under his rule. He held the throne only a year, for a rival chief aroused a faction against him and had him murdered. Not a Wife Beater.

The mysterious disappearance of two valuable hounds owned .by A. W. Combs, of Oakland, has been explained, .and the storj' behind it proves one of the most remarkable cases of canine faith fulness and determination ever record ed. Combs was one of a party of hunt ers who returned a few days ago from ; a week's hunting trip in the mo.untaina . back of Crescent City, Del N,orje coun ty, siys the San Francisco Chrcnicle- The- party had taken along four ' hounds, which ware missed during the. hrst night in the mountains. They had evidently stra3ed away durinsr the night and for the foliowinsr four dava ly given up for lost or stolen. When the hunters were ready to start" for home they .informed Superior Judge Cutler of the mysterious disappearance of the two hounds and requested him to , advertise a reward for their return in his name. One day subsequently Mr. Combs re ; ceived a letter from Judge Cutler con veying the happy news that the hounds had bgen recovered. Judge Cutler writes that they were found in -the mountains several miles from where Oaklanders had been hunting.bj a miner, wno Had' neard them barkingfqr several days.
