The gold and silver head-pieces which
the Friesland women wear so universally
are of two kinds, ono being a skull cap
divided down the middle and closely
covering the hair, the other side pieces j
consisting of little disks, elaborately
chased, and often of really beautiful
work. The skull cap is made of thin
* gold or silver, and tho prices of these
necessary ornaments run very high, a
gold skull cap costing from 1100 to 400
guilders (a guilder being equal to thirty
eight cents), while the silver prices aro
from tifty to seventy guilders. Tho
greater number are heirlooms; and in
cases where this canr.ot be so, tho first
duty of a Frisian woman is to save up
until she can decorate her head as a |

A Kentnekian tells a reporter of the
Louisville Pott that colored women
never kiss each other, and the leporter
adds they seldom shako hands. The
first may be true, bat tho last certainly
is not. Tho Kentnekian says:
In all my life I have never seen two
genuine negro women kiss, and 1 have
often heard my father remark the same
thing. He was over sixty years old, and
frequently told us that it was a tradition
through all bis family the negro women
never kiss d. A friend of mine, who
has been a groat traveler, has visited j
Africa and Hayti, has remarked to mo
the strange fact that uegro women never j
kiss. Why is it ?
In social relations there is less do
~ ception among the blacks than among
the whites. They are too fall of nature to
pretend to what they do not feel. Scan
dals, divorces and other iniquities that
flow on from deception, are of seldom
occurrence among them. Tho subject j
of negro women not kissing has often
been discussed right here Kentucky,
where the customs aud the habits of the
negro should be known and understood,
and old men who have been surrounded
by negroes all their live? declare that
they never beard of negro women kiss

conducting of elections in rude tribes
travelers are silent; probably the meth

Besides conscious selection, there
occurs among rndo people* selection
by lot. The Bamoans, for instance, by
spinning a cocoanut, which on coming
to rest points to one of the surrounding
persons, thereby single him out. Early
historic races supply illustrations; as
the Hebrews in the affair of Baal and
Jonathan, and as the Homeric Greeks
when fixing on a champion to fight
with Hector. In both those last rases
there was a belief in supernatural in

divinely determined. And probably st

< >f the late Lorenzo Delmonioo, the
best known restaurant keeper in the
United States, tlio Now York Herald, in
its obituary notice, says :
Head and front of the entire median
ism, controlling all the business of all
the houses, was Lorenzo Delmonioo,
with a capital of 9500,000 invested,
with an expenditure of over *1, 000,000
a year, and ulways with his balance on
the right side of the ledger. Riro and
Charles wore like the sons of the
Biblical woman, ono on his right, tko
other on his left, forming a trio of res
taurationnry excellence to whom New
York is largely indebted. When Alexia
was here, ho being a sailor, it was
deemed the correct thing to dino him.
The jolly tars of the New York Yacht
club got together and resolved to in
vite him to their quarter deck, sling
the hammock of courtesy in their
fo'castl', and overwhelm him with the
binnacle of their hospitality. They
did it. Ho came, they ate, and the en
tertainment in honor of the Bursian i
grand duke was ono of the most ele
gant of its kind, gotten up in Delmon
ico's best Btyle. For .*5,000 Delmonioo
could make flfty people quito gastro- j
nomically comfortable. When Charles
Dickens was here ho ma le his home
further up town, but was a frequent vis- j
itor at the Fourteenth street honso. He
was a heavy eater aud a heavier drinki i.
Two bottles of champagne at lunch >
were a mere trifle to him, but his favor- j
ite gargle was brandy, "Give me a
thimbleful of brandy," said Dickens,
as he was about driving to the Lecture j
Hall. A bottle and a tumbler were j
produced, and considering the size of
the "thimble" and the fact that it was !
literally " full," it may bo said that he !
took a tolerably good drink. The I'reis
club of New York gave Dickens a din
ner there, presided over by Horace
Greeley, and the speech of the occasion
was made by Henry I Raymond. All
the press nobs were there, and a very
jovial evening was passed. When Grn- 1
oral Crant was general he breakfasted
in the smaller room with Horace Grec
ley, and subseqn ntly A. T. Stewart.
Ed wards l'ierrepont ami other dis
interested patriots gave him a grand
dinner and reception. At the reception,
which was very high-toned, there was a
dais at ono side of the saloon on which
the general stood to welcomo those
who crowded in to do him honor.
On one occasion Mr. Ddmonico
talked freely with a representative of
the Hrrald, who said:
" What wages do you pay, Mr. Del
"Ten thousand dollars and more the
first of every month."
" What rent f
" All told 8101,00*) a yer. You see,
besides our houses we have three great
wine cellars downtown. We get wines
and liquors by the 100, 200, 300 casks
at a time, and can bny direct much
cheaper than any dealers here can afford
to sell us."
" Do hard times affect you any ?"
"Yes, indeed, and mainly in wines.
I remember the time when I walked
through tho rooms and saw from one to
three bottles ot wine on every table.
Now if we hear a cork pop we turn to
see where it is and then it's generally
a bottle of Bass,"
" Rime of your orders aro silly, 1
" Yes, indeed. We often give dinners
that cost 8100 ahead. Why, sometimes
the flowers for each cost 820, and I have
paid as high as S2O for each and every
bill of fare! Yon know tho mottoes
they have for the ladies. Well, there
are people who pay as high as 810 each

Delmonioo got up many a dinner for
i A. T. Stewart, but no matter what
; temptations were prepared for the
■ guest the invariable dish for tbp host
was a simple chop, with possibly a
■ plate of chicken broth. Mr. Btewart
dind many noted people, among them
often General Grant. When the late
Andy Johnson was swinging around tuo
circle he WAS festively din<-d at Del
monico's, and after dinner held a re
ception. He was full of fun, at all
brents, and kept his friends in roars of
merriment. After they were all gone
he called to his servant to " Come to
tied." Mr. Delmonioo told the Presi
dent that after his servant had undressed
him the waiter would show him his
| room. " No, he won't," said Andy;
" I'll undress myself, but that boy
sleeps in my room and nowhere else to
night, and that I tell you." That end
ed it, and the colored attendant shared
with his master the liest room in the
house. Among the regular patrons is
counted "ttorosis." Not that Rorosis
spends any considerable amount of
money at its little Innohea or even at
ita annual festivity; but Sorosis is a
feature of any place it makes its home.
College boys like the hospitality of
Delmonico's, aud at certain seasons of
the year mtny a hardened ear in the
dining-room below is pierced by the
jolly shouts of the undergraduates up
stairs, and many a hardened heart is
tonchel by ths memory of days and
nights—mainly nights—gone by, when
the same songs und tile same hurrah
lioys choruses were the regular thing
with them at Harvard, Yale or Prince
The late Colonel Fisk was not a regu
lar patron of Delmonico's. He went
further uptown, lint now and then he
spilled over from his bowl of bounty
there. On one occasion, at half-past
4 i'. u , ho called at the office.

stand up lunch, witli flowers and all
tliat sort of thing, served in the Erie
building for 150 men at half-post six."
" That's two hours from now."
" Well, a great deal can be done in
" All right, colonel, I'll do it, but it
will be nn expensive job lor you."
" Who said anything about the cost ?

At another time, when Fisk was work
ing up tho Ninth regiment, a ball wo*
given at tho Academy and Fisk was
anxious that Dolruonico should furnish
the supper. They declined on the
ground that there was no profit in it.
" How much guarantee do yon want ?'
said Jim. "A thousand dollars," said
Delmnnico. "All right," replied Fisk,
" I'll take five hundred supper tickets,"
and he did.
The Ring potentates never favored
Delmonico's uptown house much, but

served lie called and paid for it.
" Do you keep your people a long

"Some of them."
" The rooks—how aliont them ?"

A Whale Parent's Itciotinn.
Hporm whales usually travel in
schools, and in going into a body com
posed of "cows and calves" the latter
although yielding but a small amount
■of oil, are " struck" first. By this
method lmth are captured. The mother
will not leave her offspring, neither will
it attack tho boat, but will remain close
to the calf, apparently urging it to
escape by aonnding or by flight. The
"little one" can only remain a short
time nnder water, consequently its
dam is almost constantly a target for
, lances, which she will continue to re
ceive, although not being fast to the
! boat, until life is extinct, when the calf
will lie killed. Mhe will sacrifice her
own lifo in the attempt to assist her
young, and to any one except a whaler
it wonld appear like a cold-blooded and
heartless ranrder. Even they cannot
help admiring the devotion, and wdl
endeavor to make the struggle as brief
as possible. The " calf" exhibits no
sne!i filial affection, for if the mother is
harpooned first he will immediately
! take French leave, leaving the " old
lady" to fight her own battle*. Ex
treme caution is used when striking a
calf to avoid a mortal wound, as his

Home Life for the Blind.
In an oil dress before the College for
tho Blind, at Upper Norwood, Henry
Fawcctt, the blind postmaster-general
of England, said that, speaking of his
own experience, tho greatost service
that could lie rendered to the blind was
to etiablo them to live as far as possible
the same life as if they had not lost
their sight. Thsy shonld not be im.
prisoned in institutions or separated
from their friends. Few who had not
experienced it could imagine the indo
scribable joy to them of home life-
Rome persons hesitated to speak to the
blind about outward objects. There
could be no greater error. The ploasant
est and happiest hours of his life were
those when he was with his friends,
who talked abont everything they raw
just as if he was not present; who in a
room talked about the pictures, when
walking described the scenery they were
passing through, and who described the
people they met. When with the blind
people shonld talk with them about
and describe'everything they saw. The
speaker concluded by remarking that
there was plenty of good-will to assist

until 1877, when the tide turned the
other way. The product last year was
