Probasco, art connoisseur, blblionhlle and philanthropist, who retired from Dullness over a quarter of a century ago worth easily $1,000,000. Ho gave Cincinnati the magnificent Tyler-Da vidson fountain, an art treasure which has added to the fame of tho Queen City the wide world over: ha made public and private donations to every kind of cause until It Is estimated that his gifts and benefactions aggregated over $7uo.0oo and now, In his old age, he finds himself a hopeless bankrunt. homeless and practically penniless In me city wuich he so lastlncly enriched by his munificence. He is credited with having been a remarkablv irood business man and everv transaction down to the present time exhibits the man of most careful and methodical habits, for his accounts are models of book keep in;,', iiccuracv and Dreclslon. but giving grew to be a nassion with him and he literally gave his all away. Liquidation in Wall Street. If somebody buys, then somebody must sell, and whenever everybody has all the stocks he can carrv some body will begin to discover that the time to unload has come, and Just as soon as this discovery becomes nubile everybody will follow the example of somebody until the equipoise of an oversold market Is again destored. says Leslie's Weekly. This is what we call liquidation, and it has been sroiner on of late to a considerable extent and may go on for a little time longer- how lontr will depend upon circum stances, a great bear leader might make much of such a situation, but the general prosperity of the country makes bear leadership extremely haz ardous. As long as the iron market. which Is the best determinative factor in the Industrial situation, is on the boom, with mills, furnaces and foun dries running overtime, advancing wages and refusing orders, and as long as prosperity In other lines of business seems naturally to follow, with rail road earnings maintained at the high est figures, with money plentiful and the speculative spirit active, the bulls will have decidedly the better of the situation. Of course, a failure of the crops, unexpected foreign complica tions or a bad smash of some specula tive corner or pool might give things a decided set-back, but the resiliency of th market Is great, and the ablest men on Wall street are thoroughly impressed with the belief that the best is yet to (me." Nevertheless, I repeat my injunction to every reader that he put up .ample margins, arid, better yet, that he pay outright and In full for whatever he may purchase. He may lose many a chance for profit able speculation, but he will miss also every chance for disastrous failure Home Copious UnruMrrt. Among the Kuropean languages the jangnsn is me richest so far . number of words Is concerned and It is aiso the one which has added to Its vocabulary the largest number r words within the hist half-century. says tne .-now York Herald. The latest English dictionaries contain not than 2G0.00O different words. Next in rant comes the German language, with fco.wu words, and then come in snwu Bion the Italian, with 35,000; the rencn, with 0,000. and tho Hnnj, with 20,000 words.

The bones have been found to be in an excellent state of preser vation und In the grave tt ir t'i.v also found other remains, among these being tne rrouiai uouo or a large skull cut open by a battle ax or shato sword.

Most people suppose," said a down town pawnbroker, the other evening, according to the Baltimore News, "that when a man 'goes broke' the first thing he thinks of is pawning his dress suit, but that's not so. While there might be soane that do this, they are few and far between. By long odds, the great majority of those in distress first 'put up their wathes. In a big city like this, with clocks on every hand, a watch i almost an unnecessary luxury on the street, and so this Is the first ar ticle pawned. Watches are, so to speak, a drug in the pawnshop. We gt so many of them that we often wonder where they come from. "You might think that we never would have occasion to lend monev on wedding rings, but you would be wrong, for we have several of them now. A woman must be in distress to pledge her wedding ring, and yet it Is often done. We have engagement lings, too. but not so many In nunitier as wedding rings. Sometimes men pawn engagement rings. We simply take that as a sign that they have broken an engagement, but when a woman comes to us with one of them we know she needs money. "I've made quite a study of pawn shops," continued the broker, "and I find that In the majority of cases the dress of the person asking for a loan on some article has a great deal to do with the amount received. If the pawnbroker sees a well-dressed person la front of him will naturally argue that he or she Is a little short of funds for the time being, but will return and take the article out of pledge In a few days. If, on the contra ry, the person asking a loan be poorly dressed, there Is little chance that he ur she will get a fair amount on it. In the latter case the pawnbroker usually oilers ouly what he thinks the article will briug at private or public sale, with the amount of his Interest deducted." OOINO KAMI. t.v. llowurd City LV.

GET YOUR PraUe Due Mlioiioiiariit. The commercial development of Ha waii was tiegun by the sons of the first missionaries, and has Ik en to a very large extent carried on by their de scendants. Other white settlers have married into these families, and so to day those who are connected with these pioneers of Hawaiian civiliza tion, either through direct descent ur by marriage, collectively are called the missionary element, and represent at least three-fourths of Hawaii's indus trial and commercial strength. And this element In its full strength has been literally the salvation of Ha waii. It has lieen the upbuilding and the cleansing of the islands during times of extreme Individual peril and uncertain governmental existence. It Is the element which furnished the ministry whose llrst otlicial act was to vote down their respective salaries a couple of thousand dollars each. And there Is not an Intelligent antl-mis-slonary man on the Islands who docs not know this, and realizes how weak Is the platform on which his clan stand.

When our thoughts turn toward the Parsees, that strange sect of sun wor shipers that has retained almost In tact Its ancient practices and beliefs, it never occurs to us that there are traces of that form of old-time relig ion In the commonest actions of our daily life. We wind a watch and turn a screw from left to right, and we think we do it because It is the only right and proper way, but If we wish to extract a screw we find the reverse process Just as efficacious and easy. We read from left to right and when we sit down to Indite an epistle to our friends our pen goes In the same di rection. We open a book and a fold of note paper at the left side: that Is because we read In the same direction as the sun moves, and of course we must write in a corresponding way. Uut there are two tioints to be noted in this connection. We turn tho leaves over from right to left, whereas It Is realty easier to do as the Jews do begin at what we call the end turn the leaves with the sun. And th second point is, that In writing we make the o, the tops of the e ami us well as certain other curves, from rigut to left, and find it very easy.
