The secretaries are gentlemen ; one of them was formerly a captain In the army, the other a lawyer. The iaticnt is received by one of the secretaries, and an engagement is made for an hour at some future time, for which the fee is 100 franca. Dr. John Kvans is the nephew of Dr. Thomas V,. Kvans, the re puted escort of the Kmpress Eugenie when the escaped from France to England after the fall of the second empire. The nephew was fur several year the assistant of his uncle, receiving u salary of ia,0uu francs a year, Mdien the younger Kvans projKod to set up for himself the undo bitterly opposed it. borne years since the latter obtained from the French courts an order enjoining his nephew from using the name of Kvans professionally, as he had given up hs family name when he was created Marquis D'Uyley. Hut, an appeal being taken, the decision was reversed, and he wai allowed jto retain both his professional and social names. General Fit Henry Warren, of IJurllng lon, la., was the atithor of the famous "On to Richmond" articles, which were published In the New York Tribunt before the first bat tle of Bull Run. General Warren was a man of strong convictions, a ripe scholar and one of the most finished writers of his day. Horace Greeley selected him to become the war correspondent of the Tribunt at "Wash ington, paying him $5,000 a year salary. After the Hull Run disaster, great pressure was brought to bear ujnm Greeley, and he wrote Warren that he must tone down a lit tle. The latter was very sensitive, and believ ing in prosecuting the war with vigor refused to act any longer as the corresjondent of the Tribunt, He returned to Iowa, and was at once elected colonel of the First Iowa Cav alry. Defeat only stimulated him to greater exertions, whilo Greeley became timid alter the Hull Kun defeat and was inclined: toiei the Southern States go in peace. William Winter was only nineteen years old when he came to New York to seek his fortune. He had written a poem on scraps of brown paper from a grocery store. The verses bapjcned to fall into the hands of George Arnold, who was pleased with their KXtical promise, and took them to Henry Clapp, Jr., editor of the &iturdiu Jmi. They were published in the pajer, and the poet received 13 for his poem. The amount, unall as it was, proved more acceptable to Winter then than hundreds of dollars would now. Arnold introduced him at FfalFs, the once famous Bohemian resort on Rroadway, near Dlceckcr street. Ada Clare was the queen of that queer Ilohemlan land, which flowed not with milk and Mioney but with lager beer, and whose odors were not the mists of classic streams, but the fragrance of tobacco smoked in piies of every btyle, from the red-clay to the meerschaum. Mrs. William H. Vanderbilt's bod-room represents the dawn, but the painter, with a graceful originality, has chosen to represent, not the arrival of Aurora, but the departure of the night. Personified by the beauteous Thube, the sister of Allies Nighty with the crescent moon upon her brow, is drawn by two lovely nymphs representing the morning hours in a silvcrv car that rolls over the dis persing mists. The graceful gcxldcss has launched a shado of moonbeams against a rosy cupld, who. hovering in midair, shel ters his laughing face with one dimpled arm. Pehind the goddess the rting clouds show the blue sky of the morning. Tauline Markham, whose blonde beauty onco charmed the gilded youths of New York, and over whom fortune were squan- dereil, is now playing at a cheap east-side 'heatre. In tho first splendor of her glory ohard Grant White saw her at tho Grand 1 ra House, and, carried away by an en Ulasm which was uncommon with him, ...wroto to tho Galaxy that "Pauline Mark s' n possessed the lost arms of the Venus tie and a voice of vocal velvet."

About the only thing that tho editors of then and tho editors of tho present had In common was the prevailing desire to fill a "long felt want." Said "loug-felt want" was then, perhaps, more tangible than now, nearly always existing in the editorial pocketbook. Ono of tho oldest editors, printers and publishers In Kansas to-day is Colonel 8.

The question naturally suggested by this strikingly original story is whether there U not somewhere in nature a po tent iorce whereby life may, at least, bs temporarily prolonged. Mrs. Annie Jenncss Miller, editor cf "Dress," rays: "In every instance War ner's Safe ('ure has the eircet to give new energv ami vitality to all my powers." M meGray, teacher of oratory and phys ical culture at Syracuse, declares: " lis I tried physical culture ami v ar- .i ii :i attached, for the natives cut them oft rfud sold the skins to tho traders, who, no doubt, helped to give circulation to tho story. Another reason probably arose from tho fact that tho birds aro almost constantly on tho wing, and, as their feet aro small and tho legs short, they were hidden by the'gorgcous plumage. Jjcw Guinea is 1,400. miles in length a continent almost. Sepa rated from Australia by Torre strLlt. JV.J'V delightful climate of the tropics, and every where throughout its domain is seen tho wonderful vegetation peculiar to Islands washed by the waters of tho worm seas. Its people, for the most part, arc tho gonuino Papuans, "lino examples of savage humanity," as Dr. Wood' sayp "tall, well-shaped and pow erful." Their color, that of tho body especially, is a Booty brown or black, though it ncrer qulto reaches tho Jetti ness of tho negro races. Tho legs of tho Papuan aro long and thin; his hands aro larger than thoso of tho Malay, and his mouth is large. Ho has a way of wearing his hair which re calls tho headdress of tho "Beautiful Circassian Girl" of the dime museum. This hair is harsh, dry and frizzly. In youth it Is short and compact, but when tho Papuan reaches manhood it forms a frizzled mop, in which ho takes great pride. Sometimes, tho face is partially covered with bunches of hair, and the arms and body aro often similarly clothed. Tho houses of Papua, or New Guinea, aro elevated on posts. They aro simply constructed, but servo to keep out tho rats and snakes which seem to overrun tho island In some places. Kntrancc to tho houses is gained by a hole in tho flooring, and when tho family has retired for tho night the stair-ladder is drawn in side for protection against robbers. Bomo of thcyo houses arc very large and servo for tho abode of a number of families whoso compatibility lets them get along without domestic feuds. Tho natives are wonderful canoo and arrow makers. Their Ingenuity has led them to manufacture knives out of tho bamboo. They have an aver sion to steel that is diverting. "When tho traveler M'tUllivray visited New Guinea ho attempted to show tho natives the superiority of steel over their primi tive cutlery. Taking up a stick tho traveler cut it vigorously with his knife, and handed it to the awed crowd for in xpectiou. Htrango to say, instead of be ing pleased with tho performance, the natives iled to their canoes, aud put oil like people In a fright. Nor could the chief bo prevailed upon to accept tho knlfa as a present, although tho traveler used every inducement in his power. Papuan marriages occupy but little lime. Tho contracting parties scat them selves in front of an idol and opposite each other. The girl then presents her lover with some betel leaf and tobacco. When ho accepts tho presents the young couple Join hands and the ceremony is considered at an end. No priest, no elaborate savago costume In this. The acceptance of a bit of betel leaf, and the twain arc one. Ono of the queer freaks of tho New Guineans is their love for tho pig. The female children of almost every other nation of tho world have dolls with human face ami form. Tho Papuan girl has a doll also, but it is in the form of a pig. Tho Island swine are long-legged, stilf haired animal-, not nt all like the sleek j porkers of our own styes. It is no un ommon sight to pre a Papuan girl c.v , dng a pig and bestowing on it all the 'I I St. fore ner s safe cure, ssv? nconhrmed invalid. oi paiu musenuei uuu mmau ouu j ,e gi e8 nil ol llio IWnaJge JU.ui1 ' olllco rent free for a year, he re- -fvoik to do. tK ox team to Ilurlinr'ind.

In tho accompany ing illustration the artist has, together with the bird of Paradise, depleted several other birds of most beautiful plum age. The uppermost group to tho left represents tho great crested golden pheasant of China; tho central injure Is the bird of Paradise; tho lowest group to tho right represents the silver pheasant and tho wonderful Lyre bird of Australia. It is, however, bo yond the power ofart to do Justice to tho beautiful display of color in tho plumage of these birds, in which respect tho bird of Farad i so is supreme. Tho Papuans derive considerable rev enue from a sale of tho skins, which find their way to China and tho Fast, where tho finest aro bough; up by tho nobility. Thero aro other birds in tho "Land of "Plumes birds of matchless Bong and feathers but they do not create the in tcresr' which from tlmo immemorial has invested tho bird of Paradise.

A curious story, unfortunately having for its sequel tho loss of two lives, comes from Scotland. On Saturday afternoon a small yawl was proceeding from Pha ray island to Fday island, Orkney, a dis tance of about two miles. Thero were four nun on board, and with them was an ox, which they were conveying to Fday. The boat appears to havo had some weak points, for on tho voyage tho ox put ono of his feet through the bot tom. The craft began to till rapidly, and the only apparent salvation for tho men was to turn tho ox out of tho boat. The ox objected, and tho result was a struggle, during which tho boat was capsized. Two of tho men, James and Pobert Allan, saved themselves by hold ing to their boat until assistance arrived; tho other two were, drowned. Tho fato of tho or is not recorded. A 1'lriKlUh We upon.

Justly indig nant, Colonel Frouty hitched up his teams and started out of town. It was his in tention to shake tho dust of Fur lington from his feet forever, and to go into camp near tho creek for tho night. In tho morning ho would start for Lo Hoy, which town had made him a liberal offer to locate there. Just as ho was halting his teams, a delegation of tho citizens of Uurlington, who were In dignant at tho shabby treatment bestowed upon Col. Frouty, rode up. It was only w ith tho greatest dilllculty that they per suaded him to return. A temporary abiding place was found, and, in this ono room, wcro tho olllco of the Uurlington llcgiiU r and tho homo of Col. 8. 8. Frouty and family. A largo Hag, hung on a cord across tho room, divided tho olllco from the residence. Tho Kannat Frontier, established at Junction City, in 1S.T7, dragged out 'a miserable cxistenco till in under tho management of George K. Dummcr, it camo to a sudden If not untimely end. An editorial in reference to tho great questions of thoso stirring times aroused tho iro of tho soldiers nt Fort Hiley, and they went to "teo tho editor." The result of Veelng" him was that they "pied" tho forms, tore up tho paper, put dirt in the ink, threw tho editor out of the win dow and broke tho imposing stone in two. Homo citizens who did not like this modo of handling private property held an Indignation meeting soon after. During this meeting a bitter quarrel as to whether the Frontier was loyal or not arose. A light followed, and what llttlo furniture thero was in tho meeting-place was broken over tho heads of the wranglers. A few days later Bomo of tho citizens who had opposed tho policy of tho paper stirred up tho soldiers again. Tho editor had disap peared when the mob arrived. This time they completely demolished tho presses, threw tho typo Into the river and burned tho building. A stranger who resem bled tho editor arrived and was taken for 31 r. Dummcr.
