How to Make Your Canary Happy,
A lady of our acqualnrance, suspect
lug her canary might have lice, took
it. In the early evening, after it had
fone to roost, and sprinkled It well
with the Insect powder usually sold at
bird stores. She then covered the top
t the cage with a towel. In the
course of the evening she picked one
hundred and fifteen Uee from the
towel. She made that bird happy by
killing one hundred and fifteen lice
that were living upon it. We have
found by experience that nothing adds
more to the hapi.ncss of our canaries

The fresh, dainty-looking girl or wo

discrepancy between outward fineness
of raiment and underneath coarseness
of texture gives the discoverer a dis

of handkerchiefs as well as lingerie.

Few things disgust a refined hostess'

occasionally found in drawing rooms

Russia Is not generally looked upon
as a progressive country, but, so far

ly do keep abreast, If not a little
ahead, of the times. The latest step
forward taken by Hussion women is
to become railway guard a With the
female porter or signal woman France
hns already made us acquainted, and
a very quaint figure she cuts. The
new field of labor upon which more or
loss fair Russian has entered seems a
little odd at the first glance, but a mo
ment's consideration will show It to
be a not Inappropriate calling after
all, since the duties of the female
guard are confined to attendance upon
the compartments reserved for ladles.

Bernhardt Say. She Wa. Horn To Be a
Fainter and Nothing EDo.
It seems to be given to few mortals
to succeed In the line of life which
they most love. Even the greatest act
ress of her time, Bernhardt, named of
the public the divine, says: '-I have
never -thought that I was born to be
an actress. I was born to be a [winter

world I love painting best. Circum

because the little, thin, red haired girl
made up her young mind to do tile
best she could with a profession not
wholly congenial, Mme. Bernhardt is
such a Camille, a Theodora, Fedora,
Cleopatra, Adrienne, Izeyl, Donna Sol,
Marie de Neuberg and Lorenzeccio as
the world never saw before. The story
of Bernhardt is familiar—how she
trembled before the tribunal of the
Comedie Francalse, and afterward be
came tts chief glory and la grande

violent outbursts of temper, her brus

her moral peccadillos, her artistic
achievements and -her extravagances,

world. She is upward of 50 and a
grandmother, but age has not even
lined her face. It has been said that
great as Bernhardt is, she has only
two notes—a feline caressingness.

disputes her place ns the first of liv

Wanted Her Papa Who Had Killed the
Spanish Men, To Come Home.
Marguerite, when she learned that
her father was at Camp Wlkoff and
that she could not see him, wrote a
letter to Fresident Mc-Kinley. This
letter was written and mailed without
the knowledge of any member of her
family. She says that It was her let
ter which brought her father home.
The letter reads:
"Mr. President: Please send ray papa

A Responsive Hesrer.
Guests had arrived unexpectedly at
the country pnrsonage on Suuday
morning. The weekly supply of but

host dispatched old Joe, the colored
man, to his neighbor, Mr. Paul, whose
dairy always boasted a surplus. The
parson proceeded to the church with
his well-prepared sermon on some of
the best sayings of the great apostle,
and was well under way with it when
old Joe, returning empty-handed, con
cluded he would quietly slip In and
hear his master preach. Just as he
entered, the preacher stretched forth
his hand In a most impressive inter
rogation of voice and manner, and
called out: "And what did Paul say?"
Distinctly sounded through the church

WASHINGTON, Oct. 10, 189 S.
The covert threat to re-open the
war by sending a strong fleet to the
coast of Spam, sent out from Wash
ington last week, was ostensibly in
tended to scare - the Spanish Govern
ment into directing the Peace Com
missioners, at Paris, to speedily ac
cept the propositions made by the
American Peace Commissioners, but
its real object is to try to make votes
for Republican candidates for Con
gress by stirring up the war spirit
among the people, and asking them
to stand by the administration, be
cause the war isn't over. It is a
queer sort of voter that this sort of
thing will influence. That the Span
ish Peace Commissioners will quibble
and delay as long as possible is the
natural thing to expect from Span
iards, but every fairly-well informed
person knows that Spain is just as
much bound to accept the terms of
peace imposed by this Government as
Greece was bound to accept the
terms imposed by Turkey last year.
The war with Spain will not be re
opened, and it there is any bluster in
that direction, it will be solely for po
litical effect. "

War Department officials are un
duly elated because the testimony of
Gens. Joseph Wheeler, H. V. Boyn
ton, and Fitz Lee, taken by Mr. Mc-
Kinley's Commission, this week, has
been of the not proven order. That
is to say, neither of the Generals
named were personally cognizant of
any mismanagement or neglect. It
is beginning to be pretty well under
stood in Washington that the work of
the to be so managed
that no damaging testimony is to be
taken until after the Congressional
elections, unless it shall be given by
some witness who gets marked " all
right" by mistake.

Representative Dockery, of Mis
souri, who has been making speeches
in more than thirty counties, outside
of his own Congressional district, was
in Washington long enough this week
to say that Missouri would give one
of her old-time Democratic majori
ties next month, and that the Legis
lature to be elected would certainly
re elect Senator Cockrell.

-In a long reply to questions asked
him concerning his branch of the
War Department, by Mr. McKmley's
Commission, Adjutant General Cor
bin attempts, by implication, to throw
all the blame upon Admiral Sampson
for the troubles the army had in con
nection with the movement against
Santiago. He doesn't, of course,
charge that Simpson was responsible
for Shafter's making the movement
before arrangements for the welfare
of his men was completed, but his
reproduction of the following dts-
Bean the _y? Tha Kind You Have Always Baugfrt
! patches from Sampson, dated July 7,
implies jusi iliiu. I'iie first dispatch
reads : "If ten thousand men were
here the City of Santiago would be
ours in 48 hours," and the second:
" Only await arrival of troops to re
duce Santiago." By the same sort of
implication Sampson is made to ap
pear responsible for the cooping up
of our troops on the transports dur
ing the week they were delayed in
Florida waters by reports of danger
Irom a spook Spanish fleet. Whether
correct or not, the impression is now
growing that Gen. Corbin in writing
his answers tried to make Sampson
the scapegoat for all the mistakes
made in the Santiago campaign, tak
ing it for granted that Sampson's un
popularity would make the public
take kindly to the scheme. It may
stir up enmity between the War and
the Navy Department that may lead
to uncovering some things which
were thought to be safely buried.
The public does not need to be in
formed that Sampson is a pet of the
Navy Department.

Aguinaldo's man, Agoncillo, who
has just left Washington, is as good
at concealing his disappointment as a
professional gambler. Although he
received from the administration
neither promise nor recognition, he is
out with a published statement de
claring himself pleased with what he
has accomplished in Washington, and
announcing his intention to go to
Paris to lay the claims of the insur
gents before the Peace Commission,
and his belief that the independence
of the Philippines is assured. If he
doesn't succeed in getting more at
tention paid to Aguinaldo's claims in
Paris than they have received in
Washington, he is wasting his own
time and somebody's money by go
ing over there, and there isn't the
slightest probability that he will. The
American Commission will have their
orders from Washington long before
he gets there.

Another very decided difference of
opinion between the War Department
and General Miles, commander of
the army, has become known. Sec
retary Alger has repeatedly said that
the volunteers who have not been or
dered mustered out would be kept in
i service to do garrison duty in Cuba,
i Porto Rico and the Philippines for an
indefinite period. Senator Berry, of
Arkansas, who has been trying to get
some Arkansas volunteers mustered
1 out, was also told that by Alger.
1 Senator Berry then went to see Gen
-1 eral Miles, and was told by him that
Jit was not intended that volunteers
j should do garrison duty to any ex
j tent, and that was absolutely cer
tain that all of the volunteers would,
be mustered out shortly after the
treaty of peace was signed.
