A number of cases of relics, toys, musical instruments, models of houses and facial masks were recently deliv ered to the American Museum of Nat ural History in Washington. They were collected by the Jessup expedi tion in northeastern Siberia. Among the boxes was one which contained several dozen phonograph cylinders on which the natives had been induced to record their speech and songs. That Is certainly exploration up to date. The appropriateness of Indian corn as a national emblem Is urged by mem bers of various women's clubs who think that thecountry should have a botanical symbol, so that Uncle Sam may wear a posy In his bonnet and at tract attention in the tournaments of the world, as the first I'lantagenet did with his sprig of broom. But if corn should be selected It would be neces sary to decide what kind. We certain ly should not want It to be popcorn, which goes off with a bang when heat ed. Some quieter and more digniiled grade would be more suitable. 'Working one's way through college Is to be commended; yet It Is possible that aonie persons desiring to appear as "self-made" do an injustice to the parental aid which was actually theirs. The new Secretary of the Navy, Mr. Moody, whose parents were known to be New England fanners of slender means, was recently asked if he had "worked his way through college." "No," was the prompt reply. "My pa rents sent me to school and through college, decently and In order." How gratifying to the father, who at the age of SI, watches his son's career with Interest, must be such an acknowledg ment: ' Instead of buying outright the acres over which famous battles have been fought, the government is adopting the policy of arranging with the landowners, on payment of a small rental, to keep things exactly as they were on the day wbich made the spot famous. The woods are to cover the same area, the plowed lauds, orchards and lields to cor respond, and as far as possible build ings to retain their relative positions. This preserves the naturalness of the scene much more than would its con version into a great park, and the cost to the government is much less. Many an aged man grieves that the scenes of his youth, with their days of abounding pleasure, cannot be preserved against the changes of time and the so-called march of improvements. No braid-minded observer will over look the significance of the interest with which the people of German birth or descent regarded the recent visit of Trince Henry. They have made their home here, yet they still look lck with fondness to the fatherland. The sentiment is altogether admirable and praiseworthy. It assumes an objec tionable form only when the foreigu born citizens become clannish, when they set themselves in groups apart from the general body of the people among whom they live, and transfer the politics of the old country to the new. The love for the laud of their nativity which persists in the breasts of the foreign-born does not differ from the sentiment that has made success ful the reunions In various parts of the country in Old Home Week.

It Is stated by IT. Alfred Hilller In an article In The Fortnightly Iteview that the deaths from consumption throughout Europe are estimated at more than a million annually. In Hug land and Wales alone more thau 00,i00 people die of the disease every year, aud this annual mortality exceeds by KUhp all the ravages of the "Black Death" during the time of the Vireat I'lague which is so terribly celebrated in English history. Tuberculosis Is In fact the I'lague of to-day, and the doc tor speaks of it as a "classic" disease along with the leprosy of the middle ages aid the smallpox of the time be fore Jenner. It is thus ranked as one of three great scourges of the race, but the very classification is a source of encouragement. Leprosy has practi cally disappeared from Europe owing to improved conditions of living and tiie incidental assistance rendered by the isolated leper houses. Smallpox, most contagious of diseases, has be come but the shadow of Its former self owing to vaccination. "Were vaccina tion and revacciuatiou practiced with the persistence and regularity which nearly a century's experience lias shown to be desirable. It is probable that It would be practically extinguish ed." So, too, tuberculosis may yield to sanitation aud other branches of medi cal science, aud the method of preven tion Is exceedingly simple. Taking the figure of seed, soil and plant to repre sent the disease germ, mankind aud the disease, the writer differentiates as follows: "In leprosy, the mere sowing of the seed, the exposure to coutagiou, has rarely any result except under most favorable conditions of soil. In tuberculosis the exposure to Infection Is usually but by no means so certain ly as In the ease of leprosy, without result except where predisposing con ditions exist, that is in favorable con ditions of soil. Iu smallpox almost any unprotected, uuvaccinated person ex posed to Infection ruus the greatest risk of contracting the disease." Like leprosy tuberculosis has beeu affected by the Improved conditions of life, the British death rate having declined from 3..V") iu the million in 1S3S to 1.305 iu IV.hj. but though the soil is more resistant the seed is found every where, aud prevention can be secured only through Its control. That means the control of the expectoration of In fected persons which contain the tu bercle bacilli, and though the task seems a large one the co-operatlou of the patieuts aud the public would make It easy. The patients themselves might solve the difficulty by regulating ex pectorations, and their Ignorance and carelessness might be corrected by no tification of the disease to the health authorities, which is made compulsory in Norway. With a public educated to the necessities of the case and proper treatment of patients in Sanatoria Dr. Ilillior thinks that not only the pre vention but the absolute suppression of tuberculosis would be possible. MANY SPIES OF THE SULTAN. Turkey Growing lieiuoralized Under the Present Vicious System. In no country aud at no time of the world's history has the spy system been developed to the point It has attained In Turkey to-day. It is a most elaborate organization and costs an immense amount of money. There are spies aud counter-spies, and counter-counterspies to the fourth or fifth degree. Their number is legion, and they are to be found in all classes of society, from the highest to the lowest. Be sides the minister of police, almost ev ery high dignitary has his own service of spies, says the London Chronicle. These are all rival organizations, aud spend most of their time In spying and denouncing each other. AH prominent persons are closely watched, and fol lowed even while shopping, and should they meet another person of note and exchange a few words, the fact is care fully noted. Turks no longer dare as semble in parties of five or six for the purpose of spending their evenings to gether. It Is impossible for three or four of them to sit down at a table In a coffee house without having a spy at the next. On such occasions they al ways speak very loud, so that every body may hear them. Should a Euro pean converse with a Turk iu the street, a spy will follow them and try to find out what they are saying. , The result of all this is that the Turks avoid one another's company as much as possible, and whenever they do come together the conversation is on the most futile subjects, and quite childish. The Turkish nation Is grow ing more and more demoralized under the present system. Protecting Bridge Draws. To prevent trolley cars and trains from running through open draw bridges a rod is placed close to one rail and ends In a lever at the outer end, which is displaced by the bridge as It swings open, drawing the rod toward the opening aud throwing one of the rails In connection with a switch to turn the car off the trade. YOUTHFUL GRAY HAIR. A Ilairdmwr Give Hr View of lta Cause. "Have you noticed that so many young women have gray hair nowa days" "Have I noticed It?" repeated the woman hairdresser in a scornful voice. "Maybe I haven't any eyes. And let me tell .you," she continued, "it .It wasn't for the enormous sale pf hair dyes. I actually believe there'd be'tn times as many gray-haired wrfraen as we see nuw. I laugh often over the regular announcements that women have quit uslug hair restorers (which are usually dyes) and have decided that gray hair is becoming. "It is my ex perience, In a pretty extensive obser vation, that nine women'' out Of ten dread gray hair, and fight its approach as they would a plague,-, Gray hair makes anybody look older, and we all know it. I admit. It rs often1 'charming, and softens a face wonderfully; but It adds years, all the same., When you see a fresh-faced. -white-haired woman what do you think? Why, -naturally, what n young face that old lady has. Not one observer in twenty-five reflects that there is a young :woman with white hair." "But there are a great many?" "Oh, dear, yes! I have plenty of pat rons whose hair is gray at 25. The reason of It is plain enough. Nervous prostration, overwork, overexcltement. worry, all those things are prime hair bleachers. Women now try to learn everything. And they are crowding Into professions, where they overtax themselves. There isn't any need of it, either. A woman can work every day in the week, moderately, eat a whole some luncheon, leave her cares at the down-town office, and grow young on It. as I do. Nerves are the cause of wrin kles, mind you, ami gray hair, and about everything that destroys beauty. If a woman discovers that she Is get ting gray or hair is falling out she must use her hair brush vigorously. The scalp must be kept healthy and full of blood by friction. Then she ought to have a tonic, something from the doctor, to put her system In order, and some local treatment from her hair dresser. There are plenty of good, re liable hair tonics, which do not contain a particle of coloring. Hair grows, you know, from delicate bulbs or roots. It Is perfect nonsense to talk of doing any thing for the hair as long as these are not In an absolutely healthy state. "Oh. well," said the doctor, "one rea son that so many young-faced, gray haired women are seen Is that it is a peculiarity of some nervous diseases that they make people look younger. It's a fact. One of my patients, who is suffering from nervous prostration, ap pears ten years younger than she real ly Is. The face is relaxed, the muscles are not tense, and the mind Is unim paired. The least exertion brings a spark to the eye and a bright color to the cheeks. At the same time the hair becomes quite gray. In fact, the wom an is old enough to have gray hair nat urally, but she doesn't look It. In the main, I think that women are becom ing gray earlier than they used to. and I think It is caused by nervous strain." Chicago Inter Ocean. DECLINED TO BE KING. Monument Murks the Bpot Where Washington Spurned a Crown. Perched upon the brow of a hill, about two miles southeast of Newburg, N. Y., stands a plain, unpretentious rubble monument, erected by the His torical Society of Newburg Bay, which marks the site of a building withiu whose walls occurred one of the most dramatic events of American history. In lTSl'-ftf a large part of the revolu tionary army was encamped iu the NEWBURO MONUMENT. fields around this hill, uuder the com mand of Gen. Washington, who had his headquarters for a time in the Elli son bouse, at New Windsor, and later in the Hasbrouck house at Newburg. The building whose site is now marked by the monument was a sort of meet ing ball, or public building, for the use of the officers and soldiers, called the Temple. In ITS'-', owing to lack of pay, etc., discontent with their lot. distrust of a republican form of government had gained a formidable foothold among the rauk and tile of the army. Matters had reached such a pass. Indeed, that a secret meeting was called, urging the army to appeal from the Justice to the fears of the government, make demon strations of power and determination, arouse the fears of the people, and so obtain justice for themselves. The outcome was a letter addressed to Gen. Washington by Col. Nicola, an officer of the army, which, after a re cital of fulsome praise of the commander-in-chief, said, in part: "Owing to the prejudice of the people it might not at first be prudent to assume the title of royalty, but if all things were once adjusted we believe strong argu ments might be produced for admitting the title of king." Of what avail would have been Bun ker II ill. Concord. Yorktown. Valley Forge and the long., weary years of strife had there been a less determined man than Washington In command? Thus forewarned, Wasniug'ton issued an order for a meeting of the officers at the Temple. Gen. Gates presided, and amid great solemnity the com-inanderdu-cliief arose and rtvid bis ad dress, which was a masterly and elo quent plea for faith In the Justice or their country, terming those who would overturn the government trai tors, and finally emphatically declining to be made a king. WORLD POWSB. The Moral and the Intellectual a Well aa the Material. Whenever the little American Pessi mist begins to weep fresh tears over the gross materialism and vulgarity of his country's prominence as a world power because Congress does not agree with his own economic' views, two or three of those troublesome' things call ed facts rise up to dam his tears into stagnation. American scientists are found to command the same attention In the London, Paris and Berlin circles of savants that American statesmen and financiers are commanding In Lombard street slid In the bourse. In fact, they have been receiving this de gree of respect for many moie years than the statesmen and financiers have, only the newspapers do not say as much about them. American art, es pecially in landscape painting, appeal ed to European connoisseurs before the Chicago Fair of lSOo. and the Paris exhibition of Uxxt compelled the world to recognize us as a first-class power in that realm also, including the prov inces of sculpture and architecture, as well as painting. Now it Is announced that the exhibition of the Vienna Acad emy of Arts, which is the largest held there for twenty years, contains forty ranvases by sixteen American artists. The world-wide recognition which is accorded to American learning is shown by the fact that our universities receive inbltatious even to such far away functions as the fiftieth anniver sary of the University of Sydney, New South Wales. These details are not to be gloated over In any spirit of jingo bumptious ness, for it Is quite as true that he who says. "What a brave boy I am'." is only a Little Jack Horner as it is true that he who excuses, accuses, or that he who belittles America belittles himself. But it is worth while to gain hope and courage from the fact that our moral and Intellectual Influence, wnich can not be forced Into being undeserved, grows apace with our material and commercial influence, which alone might be credited only to bigness and the fear of It, but which when so ac companied Is a means to the usefulness and uplifting value of American excel lence to the world. New Yoric Press. Sam's Choice of Brides. Former Lieutenant Governor John C. Underwood, of Kentucky, told a story at the Canadian Society dinner at the Arkwright Club Tuesday night about a negro in his employ who was married four or five times, every time receiving as a gift $5 from his employer. The sixth time the servant appeared Mr. Underwood said: "This thing has gone too far, Sam; this time you have got to get married In the regular form. I will get you a license from the County Clerk which will cost $1.50, which sum I will deduct from the $3 I am going to give you." Sam demurred, but finally consented to have the license procured. He came to Mr. Underwood's bouse in the even ind and when the certificate was read to him It contained the name "Mary Ann Jones," the name of a woman to whom Sam had been paying attention. "Land s sakes, Marser, Mary Ann Jones ain't de woman. It's Sarah Jeu kins 1 wants to marry." Colonel Underwood replied that he would arrange it all right, says the New York Times, and would take out another license, costing S1.5U, which sum he would deduct also from the So. "This is getting too expensive," cried Sam. "I think you better leave de pa per like It am. I did wanter marry Sarah Jenkins, but dere aiu't $1.30 dif ference 'tween dem, so I reckon I'll take Mary Ann Jones dis time." Burmese Women and Girls. Not long ago Lord Dufferin remarked that the Burmese are the only Eastern nation amoug whom women are public ly respected, honored and obeyed. Woman in Burma has always bad fair play; she has been bound by no ties, and she has bad perfect freedom to make for herself just such a life as she thinks best fitted for her. She has been allowed to "change as her world changed, and she has lived in a very real world a world of stern facts, not fancies. Boys and girls grow up to gether, but with the school dayscomesa division. In great towns there are reg ular schools for girls; but in the villages, while the boys are in the monasteries! the girls are learning to weave and herd cattle, and drawing water and col lecting firewood. The daughters of bet ter class people, such as merchants and clerks, and advocates, do not, of course work at field labor. An Irish Whisper.

They Actually Kxist in Modern Life as Well as in Ancient Kufole. Men and women endowed with horns are not by any means unknown In the world we live In to-day. A short time ago Surgeon Lamprey of the army medical staff met with and studied three horned meu In Af rica, each having a horn on either side of his uose. "While serving on the Gold Coast," said he. "1 had opportunities of mak ing drawings of these people. The first horned mau I had an opportunity of observing was a Fiiutee named Cofea, aged about 32 years, from the little village of Aiuuquautu. in Wasau terri tory. "The second horned man was a long faced youth, aged about 18, named tjuassie Jabia, from the Gamin terri tory, and not a kinsman of the first one. "From a statement made by him through n Fautee Interpreter, I gath ered that this hornlike growth had beeu lu existence as long as he could remember. The third case was that of Cudjo Danso. aged about -0. He stated, through an Interpreter, that so far as he was aware this hornlike knob had grown of itself. It certainly had grown larger as he had grown older. It gave him no Inconvenience. He could see aud smell perfectly." Hundreds of cases more remarkable have recently beeu collected in nu in teresting report by Drs. George Gould and Walter Pyle, both well-known pathologists. "Human horns." say they, "are far more frequent than ordinarily sup posed. Nearly all the older writers cite examples. Many mention horns on the head. "Iu the ancient times horns were symbolical of wisdom and power. Michael Angelo. In his famous sculp ture of Moses, has given the patriarch a pair of horns." There Is a greater frequency of horns among women thau among men, ac cording to these authorities. The combination of horns and tall on a human being would naturally give rise to extravagant superstition. There is a description of such a case lu a recent medical report. The crea ture, said to have been dubbed the "Hoodoo of Plato," was boru eight years ago iu Minnesota. He was a boy 5 weeks old when de scribed. He had hair two Inches long all over the body; bis features were fiendish and his eyes shone like beads beneath his shaggy brows. He hud a tail eighteen inches long, horns from the skull, n full set of teeth and claw like hands. He snapped like a dog, crawled on all fours and refused the natural sustenance of a normal child. The country people considered this devil-child a punishment for a rebuff that the mother gave to a Jewish ped dler selling crucifixion pictures. Fabrleius, the famous Italian anato mist of the fourteenth century, records that be saw a man with boms on his head and who chewed the cud. Human rumination, or cud chewing, has been recoguized as a fact by med ical men for years, according to Drs. Gould and Pyle. A Swede of 35. living in Germany and apparently healthy, was observed, they say, by a Dr. Wluthier to retire after meals to some remote place where he might enjoy his bovine habit. Dr. Chatard some years ago, says the Loudon Express, reported that be had seen in Baltimore au old woman with a horn on her uose. It was "more than au inch long and nearly shaped like that of the rhinoceros." Dr. Saxtou reports that lie has cut several horns from the eats of pa tieuts. There are further reports of such protuberances found on the eye lid, the nape of the neck, the lower lip and the chin. On the Firing Line.

It seems that after all the religious novel Is the one that retains its hold on the public, and Is therefore the best investment for a publisher. Quite like ly the reason Is, that many people who have doubts about reading a regular novel have no scruples as to stories of a religious nature. Figures show this. The "Prince of the House of David," by Bishop J. II. Ingruham, has had an enormous sale, and so has "Ben Bur," with Its sales still Increasing. Dr. Van Dyke's "The Other Wise Man" sold bet ter last year thnn It has lu any year since Its publication. "In Tales of the Cloister," by Mist Elizabeth G. Jordan, there is oue story, "The Girl thnt Was," in which the Catholic "Cross of Honor" figures prominently. The significance of this Is very Interesting. Miss Jordan, who Is a graduate of Notre Dame, Milwau kee, received this much-prized order. Its possessor is entitled to special priv ileges all over the land. Wherever the may find herself, the Cross of Honor will permit her to enter any American convent, however strictly guarded. Wherever this cross Is shown the wear er Is greeted as a sister. Miss Jordan was for ten years on the editorial staff of the New York World, and Is now editor of Harper's Bazar. HER I I ITH BIRTHDAY. Aged Brooklyn Colored Woman Wh Saw Washington. Sitting in a rocking chnir, puffing at an old clay pipe, Mary Ann Van Dyke, familiarly known as "Aunty" Van Dyke, of Brooklyn, recently celebrated her 111th birthday. Friends, white and black, visited the venerable old woman and extended their congratulations at her home, 1WSV., Atlantic avenue, Brooklyn. She is enjoying excellent health, and was delighted at the thought that she was entering on another year. She told her friends that she attributed her loug life to the kindness of her good old master. Isaac Cortelyou. on whose farm she was born mid reared iu the old village of New Utrecht, near the site of Fort Hamilton. When a child, "Aunty" says she saw General Washington ride up to Master Cortelyou's house. In New Utrecht, on a line gray horse. General Washing- . ton she said, dined with her master. She described him as a handsome man, of dignified and courtly bearing. Since 1875 she has lived with Mrs. Sarah Brown, at her present home, and her declining yenrs have been made as comfortable as possible. She is still able to walk about, but Is somewhat feeble, nnd the sight of her left eye 1 impaired. She tottered downstairs the other afternoon, says the New York Herald, to pose for her picture at tie front door of her home, and several times insisted that her position be changed, so she could be photographed at her best. Of the few presents re ceived, "Aunty" was pleased most by pouch of good tobacco. Japanese Growing Taller. The increase of stature amoug t"e Japanese Is very perceptible, and the subject of tepid and even cold water for the hot baths among many of the people Is responsible for an increasing floridlty of the complexion. Athletic development during the past twenty years has also added greater avoirdu pois, inasmuch as a more generous diet and abstention from parboiling ' bringing Its reward In an accumulation of muscle and tissue.
