Ex-Mayor John A. Boche, of Chicago
There js no sense, no satisfaction, no inde
pendence in politics, and to nearly every
young man it is a snare and a delusion. I
confess that I took a flyer in politics and
have had enough. I have a business that
keeps me engaged and employs a number of
young men. As soon as 1 was elected Mayor
two young men in my employ wanted to get
sm.aU offices. I knew the uncertainties of a
Jong tenure of office and advised them sot to
quit positions, that, although they did not
pay as much as the offices, "would be more
secure and more remunerative in the long
run. One clerk agreed to remain and is now
getting a much larger salary, is rising and
is practically independent. The other took
office. I "was not re-elected and he was asked
toresign his office. To-day he is looking for
work; Do not thint of politics, young men,
as a pursuit; ;t is the road to poverty.

them, and instead of going to work to earn

to say that young men shonld not take an
interest in politics, for they should, in order
toyote intelligently and understand the
questions at issue "before the people. If
'civil service is perpetuated a professional

oT the Treasur.y A man cannot be honest
and.be a professional politician unless he is
wealthy. No man should ever accept an ap
pointive office unless he is rich enough to
afford it. As to elective offices only, I
think they can well be accepted. For a
Toung man to think of adopting politics for a
profession, unless he is independent, is moral
suicide. If young men could see the old
men in the departments at "Washington
theywould -take warning and not wish to
meet ;a similar fate. It is a great problem
with" ns to know "what to do with the old
men who have been in service so long and
are now physically incapable of discharging
tbeir duties. "We cannot pension them off,
because the Government has made no pro
, vision, and they have not saved enough to
keep them alive witbont work. In England
they are pensioned, and so young men there
entering the Government service do not run
any risks.
Time-Worn Traditions That Originated In

It seems that most of onr popular deities
are "crockery gods after all. Throw a few
facts at them and ther fall in fragments.
A French historian has just demolished
Joan of Arc He has proved that she didn't
amount to much anyway, and did the French
more harm than good.
It would seem that historians have very
often drawn from the inexhaustible foun
tains, of their own imaginations. Thomas
Jefferson never rode up to the Capitol on the
morning of his inauguration and hitched
his horse to the trout fence with his own
hand, which would doubtless have been a
very picturesque thing for him to do if
there had been any fence there. Homer
never wrote his own poems, which would
have been a very credible piece of work for
. "him if he had ever existed. Alexander
-never wept for more worlds to conquer, for
Alexander wasn't in the habit of playing
'the baby act, and would have been ashamed
to cry in public anyway. Arnold Winkel
reid never cried, "Make way for liberty!"
which would have been a very pretty thing
for him to say, only it didn't occur to him
at the time.
Shakespeare never wrote his own plays,
iforhe never doubted for a moment that
'Bacon could write them well enough with
out his assistance. Grant never took Lee's
sword under the apple tree, for by some
strange oversight the apple tree wasn't there.
"William Tell never shot the apple off his
son's head, a teat which he might have
done well enough if he had been at all de
sirous of establishing a reputation as a
marksman, for Captain Bogardus in ottr
day would consider it an easy matter. And
there never was any "William Tell any
way. t Someone has said that history is a series
of lies which mankind has agreed to be-
Jieve. Perhaps the reason that truth is
stranger than action is that a large propor
tion of what people accept as truth is fiction
,in disguise.

Ingenious Trick Played Upon a Spec
tacular Audience.
Gilbert's Fantastic Philosophy Adopted by
tcoBBxsroxsxircs or the DisrATcn.:
New Yobk, December 27.
OMIOAL is the
trick played upon
ihe spectators of one
of the current thea
trical ballets. A
dance by Alsatian
villagers is intro
duced in the specta
cle. Pirst, a line of
eight danscuses am
ble out from the
wings and trot down
toward the footlights.
They are a happy
medium as to faces
and figures, they are
costumed neatly and
their motions are
eraceful. After cut-
tlug up their allotted capers, they separate
into 'fours and retire to the sides of the
scene. Then eight more Alsatians emerge
into view, and come forward in the manner
of their predecessors, except that each holds
a bared right arm la front of her face, as
though shielding her eyes from the sndden
glare of the footlights. Thus they dance
forward, with their visages hidden, until
they are now close to the front of the
stage. They are as spry and as
symmetrical as the eight who haye
come beiore. But when they suddenly
lower their right arm and disclose their
countenances it is seen that a good joke has
been played on the assemblage. They are
all women of BO years or more, with un
commonly ugly features. It is an old
maxim in the theater business, I believe,
that an audience shonld never be fooled.
But the oddity and success of this trick is
so great that I doubt if there is any resent
ment over it Anyhow, it is immediately
followed by an atonement. A third octet of
danseuses quickly come into view: Their
right arms are before their faces, too, and
as they patter down the stage to the place
jnst vacated by the old women, the specta
tors wonder how mnch further they will be
shocked by visual ugliness.
"Probably these will turn onttobeboys,"
was one surmise.
"These will be centenarians," was an
other gness.
"We have had the daughters and
mothers," a third opined, 'fend now they
will show us the grandmothers."
Down went the arms, and into view came
eight of the youngest and prettiest faces in
the whole ballet.
Xou may have read a line or two an
nouncing the death of Harvey Kennedy,
and telling yon that be was a very rich old
Wall street broker. But nothing has been
printed as to the'Friday night sight which
his demise will take away from the Metro
politan Opera House. Mr. Kennedy was a
widower. He showed no inclination to re
marry, yet he was very fond of young la
dies, and his method of getting their society
without paying particular attention to any
single one was ingenious and genial. He
had a carriage built to hold eight persons.
It was a cross between a fine private coupe
and a big public stage Two big, prancing
horses drew it, and a liveried coachman sat
high on the front seat. The other portion
ot Mr. Kennedy's outfit was a box for one
night a week at the opera. He hired it
from Cyrus W. Field at $175 a night, and
was a sub-tenant at that price all through
last winter and during the present
season until his sndden death. For each
Friday night he invited six young ladies to
go with him to the opera. His guests were
chosen from among all his acquaintances,and
not often was the same girl entertained twice.
For each party he also secured a matron as
a chaperone, and he himself made the
eighth person in the party- To every lady
he sent a huge bouquet of the costliest roses,
tied with a very longand wide satin ribbon
exactly matching her dress, or at least har
monizing with it in color. To be exact
about this he usually obtained a scrap of
the chief material in each instance, and
these samples were delivered to the florist,
who obtained ribbons for the eight bouquets
to suit
Every Friday night the Kennedy barouche
would start out from his own quarters he
had lately lodged in the Union Leagne
Club with the host alone within it His
first call would be at the honse of the chape
rone, and thence they would go the round of
six honored domiciles, finally bringing up
at the Metropolitan with the always envied
loaa. Mr. Kennedy was a handsome old
man, large of stature, with a ruddy, beam
ing face and $ now white hair. It was an odd
spectacle to see him in his box surrounded
by a bevy of vivacions girls, handsomely
costumed and profusely bedecked with the
roses of his providing. After the opera was
over he always took the party to one or an
other of the most fashionable .restaurants,
where he treated them to a magnificent sup
per. The cost of this weekly entertainment
conld not have been less than $500. Mr.
Kennedy died of heart disease. Now, how
many of my readers .will fail to remark that
of course no old widower's heart conld stand
such a complex strain as that?
"When a roan's arraid,
A beautiful maid
Is a charming sight to see."
That is what you heard the maiden sing
in "The Mikado." She was telling about a
capital punishment -which she had wit
nessed, and ber declaration that the doomed
man, just before losing his head, gazed upon
her pretty face for courage, -was always taken
as a Gilbert phantasy. Bnt the idea is
actually put into practical use in the largest
of New York establishments where teeth are
extracted under laughing gas. I have been
there two or three times, and have watched
this feature ot the business with amused in
terest "Now. as von mav already know, laugh
ing gas renders the patient oblivious bnt not
insensible. Ho feels all that is done to him,
and often make a lot of fuss about it, but
upon awakening he can recall nothing that
has happened. It is when the "man's
afraid" that the "beautiful maid" is placed
before him as "a. cheering sight to see." In
other words, while the strong-armed dentist
stands at one side of the victim's chair, with
the gasbag ready for him to breathe out ot
a girl with an amiably pretty lace takes a
position close to the opposite arm. She
gazes sympathetically yet smilinglv into his
face. She isn't coqeettish about it It may be
described as a sort of cousinly smile that
is, somewhere between a sisterly grin and
an ogle with no tie of consanguinitv about
it As the man breathes in the cas and loses
his senses, the last fading vision is that of
the girl's encouraging face. The practical
value of this device lies in the fact and I
have this on the authority of the boss of the
place that a goodly proportion of the pa
tients would become obstreperous and vio
lent while under the influence of the gas
but for the effect ot the girl's, presence.
That may seem like nonsense, bnt in prac
tice it proves to be good sense. When the
man awakes he finds tbat his guardian an
gel is still there, and he departs feeling. I
suppose, that she has taken a deep and poig
nant interest in his particular case.
In Filth avenue I chanced to walk just
behind a medium-sized gentleman, who wore
a nigu nat, a ratner roagn and not entirely
new gray overcoat and well-wrinkled troae-
en. His hair was slightly tinge with the

the rear he looked add, for alL the pockets
of his coat were staffed oat to their full limit
with envelopes, while his arms .were held
akimbo to allow for two boxes that he car
ried beneath them. He looked not unlike a
latter-day Santa Clans, bnt instead of filling
stockings it seemed to be his duty to fill the
post-boxes that are fastened to the lamp
posts. He would upon reaching a post de
posit a large share of his envelopes, and
then pass on until he reached another box,
where he would resume his work. This
performance was kept up all the way down
to the Union Club, at Twentieth street, and
by that time the modem Santa Claus bad
shrunk into the fairly veil-proportioned
man for which nature had intended him.
At the corner he turned with an. air of
pride at having done so much so cleyerly.and
in another moment he was sitting in the
club window, looking somewhat iatigued,
bnt satisfied. The modern Santa Clans was
Ward McAllister, and "he was sending on
invitations to something or other, probably
the famous New Tear's ball.
Just to show that there is a fact in the
adage, "Truth is stranger than fiction," let
me tell what was told the other evening in
a circle of friends who are very much given
to discussing literature and art In their
little symposium everyone had to pay an
admission fee in the only coin which is cur
rent mere mat is, in wii. Aucr iwuiug
judgment on recent literary efforts, they be
gan to discuss "Camille," and all agreed
that it was pre-eminently the model at its
wicked kind. The most enthusiastic ad
mirer of the play was a woman whose name
is well known in literature, bnt which I
am not privileged to give.
"When I was 20," she said,. "I began to
teach languages 'to earn my living. This
did not succeed, and one fine morning my
l&3t pupil turned me adrift what to dc
next I didn't know. All the forenoon -I
wandered abont in search of an idea. I
was all worn ont, physically and. mentally.
A cold, fine rain began to fall, chilling me
to the bone, and rousing me from my
dismal reflections, so that I began to
look about for a place of shelter.
While so doing I came upon a crowd of
people, an interminable line, pushing,
jostling, scolding, crying out all because
they were getting wet. and because the
doors of the theater which they were be
sieging did not see fit. to open for the mati
nee of "Camille" earlier than usual. I
took refuge in a neighboring doorway and
watched the people enter. Then the idea
occurred to me to do likewise. Now, my
judgment was not backward in telling me
that this pleasure vras scarcely in keeping
with my finances; but I reasoned to myself
that it was the highest kind of economy to
get under shelter, for the rain, by damag
ing my clothes, would cost me more than
the price of tr modest seat. So I went to the
box-office and asked lor what I wanted.
" 'None left here,r responded a voice that
seemed to come from the depths of the

fitted, when I was accosted on the sidewalk
by an amiable person, who offered me, for a
modest compensation, an excellent seat in a
box. He was so persuasive, and my desire
to see the play was so great, tbat we came to
terms, and armed with his ticket I re-entered
the theater.
" 'Better leave your cloak in the dressing
room, ma'am,' said the usher. 'It is wet,
and there are already five in the box.'
"It was with much reluctance I confided
the garment to his care, because I feared he
would expect a fee. The door of the box
was opened for me, and its five occupants,
already in bad humor from waiting too long,
looked decidedly askance at me. In spite
of this unsympathetic reception X estab
lished myself in my seat, feeling that it was
well paid for, and settled down to a delight
ful atternoon. Just before the closing-scene
the usher came around with mv elbafe. All
at once a rumor was started that caused a
panic The gas jets were extinguished at
once; somebody shouted fire; the confused,
struggling, shrieking mass surged and
swayed in the darkness, their senses para
lyzed by fear. It was horrible! Amid this
universal panic I was fortunate enongh to
retain some slight intelligence, and despite
the horror or the situation my hand had
been extended in the direction of my prop
erty. I seized it as 1 thought
and held it above my head for
safe keeping. Before long the em-
E loves of the theater restored order. There
ad been no fire only a new gasman had
turned off the gas by mistake. Every one
was entreated to be calm and to go out
quietly. This, however, "was easier to say
than to do, and for my part I -was glad to
find myself once more out on the sidewalk
in the rain. Imagine my astonishment at
finding on my arm a man's overcoat I
searched the pockets. They were empty. I
examined it carefully, and superior as it
was to my own feminine garment, X failed
to rejoice at the acquisition. All at once I
felt a hard object between my fingers in the
side pocket I took it out and discovered
a wallet It contained .5200 and several
cards inscribed with the name of a million
aire. I hastened to the address, and, after
prolonged argnment with the hall boy and
considerable parleying with the valet I was
at last permitted to see the Croesus. He
thanked me for my trouble, and declared
that he would order a new cloak for me at
"'But how did you know the coat was
mine?' he asked.
"I learned it from your card in this
wallet," I answered.
"How careless I am said the rich man. 'I
might have looked for that money for a long
time witbont remembering where it was. I
am extremely obliged to you." Then look
ing at me keenly, he went on: 'If I could
be of any use to you, it would give me great
"His face showed such a kind interest that
before long I had put him in possession of
all the facts of my history. He listened
with attention, and as I rose to go he prom
ised to keep me in mind. A week later I
became a well paid tutor to his grand
children, and from that time on I have had
no financial troubles. It was the wicked
'Camille' that gave me a start in life."
The names would add interest to that
true story, but I must not give them.

The Bev. Dr. Morgan Dix has addressed
a letter to the Churchman in correction of
an exaggerated "statement of ihe value of
the property owned by Trinity Church. He
"It is said in the item referred to that our
property is -worth $160,000,000. This is an
astonishing exaggeration. It far surpasses
statements on the same subject which I
have again and again corrected in our Year
Book and in the secular journals of this
country. Let me give your readers a de
monstration of the wildness of the estimate.
"The income oi $160,000,000 at 6 per cent
-would be $7,500,000. Our property is man
aged on strict business principles and with
tne earnest desire to mate it available to
the fullest extent for the purpose of onr
trust but the entire income from that pro
perty for the year ending Jnly 31, 1889,
hardly, if at all, exceeded $580,000. The
difference between $580,000 and $7,500,000

Remarkable Escapades of a 'Slaye
Trader Who Was Known as
Stealing a Yessel and AssaKlsg Ike Sole of
a Bishop.
Some years ago the state of affairs in Poly
nesia was such a scandal to civilization
that the attention of the European powers
was called to it, with very important re
sults. The Fiji Islands, one of the finest
groups in the Pacific, had become an AI
satia for all the vagabonds and desperadoes
in what has been called the fifth quarter of
the globe. Thither resorted every fugitive
from justice and every broken adventurer
from all the British colonies or the French
penal settlements, certain to find there J
plenty of kindred spirits among the reckless
characters who at that time carried on the
island trade. Under the pretense of estab
lishing law and order, a number of these
worthies had banded themselves together
under a native chief named Thakombau,
whom they had proclaimed King of Fiji,
and established what they were pleased to
call a government The only effect of this
was to subject honest traders to extortion
under the form of dnes and taxes, while en
abling the lowest ruffians afloat to evade all
national responsibilities by flying the Fijian
The great development of the sugar trade
in Queensland and of tne cotton, coffee and
copra industry in many of the islands,
necessitating the employment of colored
hands, had, about the same time, given a
sudden impulse to the labor traffic, more
commonly known as "black birding" and
in many instances not distinguishable from
slavery. The ordinary practice among the
more regular traders, was to make arrange
ments with the tribal chiefs in the groups
wnere tne Dest laDorers are tonna, to supply
a certain number on a fixed scale of pay
ment, with an undertaking to return them
by a certain date, when they had completed
their engagement This was regarded as
legal, if anything could be legal where no
defined authority of any sort existed. But
there were numbers of traders, or so-called
traders, who cut things short by landing an
armed party and captnring all the people
in a village, or else enticing them on board
their vessel by one device or another, and
having got them down below, sailing away
with them. These raids were often accom
panied by blood-cnrdling cruelties, and the
men who were guilty ofthem were among
the most depraved and callous wretches
that ever disgraced the human form divine.
About this time news reached the great
German trading house of Goddefroi, at
Apia, that1 the Karl, one of their vessels,
was engaged in slave-stealing and piracy.
The Goddefrois were thunderstruck. They
had been established atSamoa for many
years, and had the highest standing in the
Pacific for fair dealing with both whites and
natives. Moreover, they were in no way
concerned in the labor traffic, and the mas
ters of all their vessels had instructions, not
only to carry no labor on account of the
firm, but never to have any dealing, how
ever profitable, with tbat unsavory trade.
The captain of the Karl was an old and
trusted servant oi the company, and a man
of excellent judgment and of unswerving
Afterward it appeared that the Karl,
while on her crnise, had been hailed by a
Fiji vessel flying signals of distress. The
captain of the Karl answered the signal,
and promised to stand by the disabled vessel
dnring the night, bnt darkness had hardly
fallen when the Karl was boarded and
captured by the men from the 'Fiji vessel,
headed by -Bully Hayes, the pirate of the
Pacific. The captain and crew of the Karl
were put ashore on a small island.
A few weeks later, the Kail, with her
well-known white hull and trim rigging,
came to an anchor one day off one of the
most populous villages in the island of Mai
licollo. The natives having often seen her
beiore and had no occasion to regret ber
visits, soon swarmed round her in their
canoes. They were all the more confident
by seeing on her deck several men in the
biack silk coat and soft black felt hat which
are commonly worn by the missionaries in
those seas. Hayes was always well pro
vided with these disguises, and on this oc
casion he chose to wear one himself and to
play the role of a new bishop coming to es
tablish a mission station, on the island.
Meanwhile, his mate, who wai acting as.
captain, appealed to the enpidity of the na
tives by offering to buy all the produce and
curiosities they could get together at a
price which seemed fabulous to their simple
He had no inducement to be economical,
as he was never going to pay. The next
day but one was fixed for a great gathering
in the village, both to meet the missionaries
and for purposes of trade, the "Bishop" es
pecially requesting that all the young men
and women might be present to hear him
preach to them in their own language.
At the appointed hour the largest build
ing in the village, an immense shed built of
light timbers and the leaves of the cocoa
nut, was crowded with the very flower of
the population, only the old people and the
children being left in the neighboring set
tlements or the other houses of the village.
The produce which had been brought for
sale had already been taken on board the
brigantine, and payment for it was to have
been made at the meeting.
Billy Hayes' money, however, was on a
par with his religion. The fitfet thing the
unhappy natives knew, a volley of bullets
and slugs was fired through the fragile
walls of the building, killing and wound
ing a great many and striking terror into
the rest Taken entirely by surprise, and
being quite unarmed, they were unable to
offer any effective resistance, and though
the people in the village made a gallant
struggle, wounding several of Hayes' men
and killing more than one of them, fully a
hundred of the finest youngmen and women
were driven or dragged down to the boats
and carried off to the Karl, while probably
double that number were left dead or man
gled by the murderous fire and cruel blows
of their assailants. The prisoners were im
mediately placed under hatches, and the
Karl was away before the terrified natives
conld gather in sufficient numbers to sur
round her in their canoes with bows and
When the news of this atrocious deed
reacned tne uommodore, he commissioned a
young officer named Freemantle, who had
already distinguished himself by his activity
against the slavers, to take the swiftest
cowatta on the station and go in pursuit of
the Karl, which, it was surmised, would
make for some port on the coast of Queens
land, where alone so large a number of
laborers conld safely be disposed of. Cap
tain Freemantle accordingly kept a course
which he calculated would bring him on the
track of the brigantine somewhere among
the islands of the Aralnra Sea; feeling
easy abont overtaking her by his steam
power, if once he could ascertain which way
she had gone.
On the evening of the third day of the
chase, when among the islands off the coast
ot New Guinea approaching Torres Straits,
became in sight of a craft sailing to the
northwest with everything she conld carry.
As he overhauled her, he saw she was a
brigantine with a white hull, flying the
German flag, and sunk very deep in the
water. She conld be no other than the
Karl, and the commander of I the Botario
already felt his post captain' cossaiiseion

Wind and was boldlv steering close to the
edge of the reef, where the Uosarfo, with
her iron plates and ber heavy draught, did
not dare to go. Captain Freemantle tried
xthe effect of a shot from the Armstrong
fivot gun which served for a bow chaser j
nt the only response the Karl made to that
was to dip her German ensign, three times in,
derision. When nieht came On. the brie'
antme vanished among the islands, where
the corvette could not follow her in the
dark. Captain Freemantle, however,
thought nothing of that being certain of
picking her up a very few hours after day
light next morning.
When dawn came, the Eosario -was still
in the channel between the islands, and it
was impossible for any vessel to pass her
without being seen, or to escape her as she
steamed ahead. She no sooner cleared tbe
group of islands among which the Karl had
been lost sight oi the night before, than she
descried a vessel standing to the eastward,
crossing the course previously taken by the
Captain Freemantle, thinking the enemy
had doubled on him, in the hope of leading
him astray among the perilous reels which
abound in those waters, cautionsly changed
his course to cnt him off. studying the chart
closely and keeping the lead line constantly
going. -The way seemed clear enongh and the
Eosario was soon under a full head of steam
once more. By 10 o'clock she was near
enongh to tbe tailing vessel to see that she
was a brigantine of much the same size and
build as the Karl, bnt painted black and liv
ing the detested black and white rag of the
kingdom of Fiji.
These were tricks which every naval
officer was quite prepared for, and Captain
Freemantle bore down on the brigantine as
hard as he conld go, convinced that her liv
ing freight would prove her to be ihe Karl.
He was rather surprised, however, to see
that she made no effort to get away; bnt
kept on an easterly course, as if she were
sailing from Townsyille or some North
Queensland port to the islands of the Pa
He signalled to her to heave to, and she
hove to immediately, at the same time
saluting the British flag. Captain Free
mantle lowered his launch and, taking a
Lieutenant and 24 men, be went off himself
to tne ongantine, wnirn now lay right un
der the guns of the Jtosario. The com
mander was received in the gangway by a
fine-looking, gray-haired man, who sainted
him respectfully and welcomed him on
board. He placed his men in charge of the
deck, and ordered the other to produce his
papers. These showed that the vessel was
the Annie Woods, of Levnka, bound from
Townsville to Tonga. Everything seemed
quite in order, but that proved nothing, for
lorged ships' papers were a very common de
vice. Captain Freemantle asked how manv
men were on board, and was told that there
were 30, inclnding 14 men who had been
taken at their own wish from Thursday Is
land, where their ship had been left dis
abled. The crw wero mustered on deck
and answered all questions satisfactorily.
Captain Freem.ntle was not at all de
ceived. He mjrely admired the way in
which the thing was done. He now sent
the crew of the brigantine to the forecastle
and ordered his men to open the hatches of
the main hold. The captain of tbe Annie
Woods made not the least objection, and tor
a very good reason. The hold contained
nothing but barrels of water and a quantity
of bananas and pineapples. The bulkheads
were newly whitew ashed and the deck
scrubbed down, and there was( not a sign
throughout the ship of her having carried
labor for months.
What was a naval officer, bound by rules
and regulations and the decisions of vice
admiralty courts, to do? The law said tbat
slavers were only liable to be seized on the
high seas when v actually found with un
licensed labor on board. Here there was
not a trace of a laborer, licensed or un
licensed. If Captain Freemantle seized the
brigantine and was unable to prove any
thing against her, he would be liable to
heavy damages, and would certainly be
reprimanded by the Commodore for excess
of zeal. .
Mdst reluctantly, but most politely, he
handed the ship's "papers back to the Cap
tain of the Annie "Woods, together with a
certificate from himself of having boarded
her and fonnd her all in order. The Eosario
steamed her way, and the Annie Woods
sailed hers. .
When the Commodore received Captain
Freemantle's report in his own stateroom on
board the Challenger, at Sydney, he asked
him what he thought of the affair.
"I'm as certain as that I'm sitting here,
sir," replied Captain Freemantle, "that the
Annie Woods was the Karl, painted black
in the night"
"But how about the 150 laborers?"
"That sanguinary scoundrel consigned
every one of them to the sharks between the
time when I lost him in the evening and the
time when I found him again next morn
ing." "I've no doubt you're right," said the
Commodore kindly, "bnt you only did your
duty in letting him go."
He was right; and many a time afterward

A Trait In Yankee Character That Seems
Qaeer to the English.
New York TrUmne.l
There is a streak of good nature in V the
American character which is not found in
that of the English, for instance. People
here seem to take an interest in everyone
whether they know him or not The writer
was riding uptown with a friend on the
elevated road a few days ago when he
noticed a man across the Car looking at a
friend with a worried, almost painfnl ex
pression on his face. He stirred uneasily in
bis seat as if not wholly decided what to do
-until finally he came over with an apologetic
air and said:
"Excuse me, sir, your watch-chain locket
is open."
When the writer's friend had thanked the
man for his kindness, he said with an
amused smile on his lace:
"Isn't it remarkable that Americans
should be continually doing such things?
Three or fonr days ago I weakened the
spring of the locket and since that time the
case has been coming open. I have had
people call my attention to it on the trains,
in the street, at the theater everywhere. It
really seems to exercise them terribly. I
have even had women stop me and' warn me
that it was open. Not the least amusing
part of the tning is the fact that when any
one domes up to trie he seems half-ashamed
of his weakness, but he can't resist the im
pulse. Now when I see anyone fretting or
looking disturbed in a car, I examine my
locket. When I close it I seem to restore
the person's peace of mind at once. I get
so mnch amusement out of the fractious
little locket that I am loath to have it re
paired." Checkers nt Spilt Canon.

Disclosing ,tbe Secrets of Belig Lovely All
One's Life.
The world so far has been content with
making a good living combined with more
or less moral improvement during life. But
with real progress ws cannot always be sat
isfied with so little.
The good we must insist upon enjoying
longer, and since life without vigor is ajnere
penalty, we must have freshness and at
traction to go with it The looks' of women
have improved greatly within the last 20
years, in which the arts of dress and physi
cal culture haye received new impulse.
Pretty women at 35 do not feel obliged to
lay aside their queenship, and, when a
woman of over 40 who looks and is the
incarnation of youth and vitality, no one
thinks to question her age or mutter the
odious syllable: "well-preserved." There
is such a thing as a life of constant work,
simple habits, generous feeling and intel
lectual activity, keeping mind and body In
such harmonious play that failure has no
chance to mar its working. The springs of
such a liie are incessant activity, with close
physical attention, and not too much over
work. It is not work that kills people, but
mental worry and unhealthful surround
ings. The overcharged heart and taxed
hands wonld bear their strain nobly to the
end if it were not for the close office, the
overheated house with air drawn from the
cellar, the vitiated food at restaurant, or
poorly-kept home, which poison hearts and
paralvze brain..
The conditions of beauty are threefold,
the culture of bodv. mind and the affections.
We cannot neglect one of these and look for
satisfaction from tbe others. Sne care and
opportunity must be given to soul and in
tellect alike if we would have the full per
fection of the physical.
The cultivation of beauty is the cant of
the day; bnt gymnasinms, reform dress and
cosmetics can never give allurements which
will stand one hour against the same looks
which add a measure ot keen wits. These
in turn go down against the dainty lip,
which takes the curve of pride and tender
ness at a thought, the brilliant eyes keen
with discernment, and full of passionate af
fection as they are pure, fit' for heaven's
se trolling, the roseblooming face which can be
arch with coquetry or soft with unutterable
devotion, yet always generous, always sin
cere, from tbe very nature and fiber of its
sonl. Thank heaven, such women, though
incredible, are not impossibilities. Such
natures had the historic beauties, who drew
hearts after them as long as they could
smile. Great generosity and keen mind
seem inseparable from this lasting loveliness,
and when we come to look into it scientific
ally, they are the very rise and causes of its
being. Acute feeling stimulates the nerves
and quickens circulation, which actively
carries away dead particles of the skin, leav
ing it fine and clear. I qnote from the ad
vance sheets of Mrs. Stanton's most able and
suggestive work on phvsiognomv:
"A fine thin skin willgive a corresponding
bright solerotio and retina to the eve. A
bright eye is never seen in combination
with a coarse, thick skin. The second
cause of brightness is the quality- and
expansion of the optio nerve. The nerves of
sense of high quality and activity, in con
nection with tbe thin covering of the eye,
give the brightness and vivacity observed in
the mentally gifted person, and. absent in
the dull and stupid-" "
This quick circulation also gives color to
tbe cheek and fairness the general com
plexion, besides favoring the muscnlar ac
tivity which gives fine limbs, freedom and
grace of movement The nearest approach
to these conditions is to be fonnd among
actresses, who study tbe art of self-repair,
who are under continual artistio stimnlus,
and if they do not throw themselves away
by dissipation, of all women preserve their
charms longest
I lately paid a call npon a well-known
actress, whose trim, elegant figure, glossy
black hair and fair vivacions face, coupled
with faultless taste in dress, defied any idea
ot being over 36. I ought to know women,
and yet I sat within a yard of her without
suspicion of her real age, and was taken
aback at hearing one cry out afterward,
"That womanl She must be 60, and she has
been a grandmother I don't know how long."
It may be, yet I shall always think of her
as one of the most fascinating of women,
wim mo eeuuuent anu vivacity or yomn
about her, as it will be until she dies. I
know one New Xork grandmamma
with the most snperb roseleaf com
plexion, melting dark eyes and pliant
figure, without a redundant line, with
arms one feels like kissing for their
lovely taper and velvety skin, yet this
bellemere, as tbe gracious French term fitly
expresses it, is one of the keenest business
- women in New York. A life which keeps
a woman's activities on the alert, giving
her contact wi(h the world, while feeding
her sentiments and affections and leaving
time for personal cares, is the ideal life for
the preservation of beauty. Women who
marry and settle down, as it is phrased,
give themselves too often to monotonous
cares, grow plump, padded and expression
less. Wrinkles come easy to snch women's
faces. Sentiment, not sentimentalism by
the way, is after all the great beautifier of
women, and yet they rule it out of their
lives as contemptible, if not dangerous. But
sentiment, alasl is not perhaps in fancy
packages, sold at the pharmacy. One can
only indicate its worth, as doctors say, and
go on to the care of the cuticle.
One would imaginetbat all had been said
upon this subject Science shows how mnch
there is to discover in the search for the lost
spring of youth.
That spring is vitality. If this is active
in supply, tbe system readily throws off its
old, worn-out matter and creates new, the
waste and repair are so nearly equal day by
day tbat age comes slowly and impercep
tibly. The reason people have not this
vigor is principally food.
In an institution for elderly people of the
better class, near one orour largest cities, is
or was a man of 96, who was a most remark
able specimen of vigor at that age. Up
mornings at 4 o'clock, playing his flute tor
diversion, studying hard and gardening or
walking far, he spent as active alifeasmost
men ot 65, and did not look much'past that
age, exoent tbe change in the cornea of the
eyes. His signt was seen, nis hearing gooa
and his memory of events and dates phe
nomenal. Our food shonld be our tonic and medi
cine, and it is either that or our poison. Its
work in eliminating old matter from the
system must be carefully secured, as this
tells most strikingly upon "the cleanness of
the skin.
This skin of ours, which the Japanese say,
keeps us from seeing our souls, is a horny
film, in the outer layers pierced by minnte
sweat glands, protecting the lymph vessels
and juices below. If not cleansed frequently
it takes additional thickness. The magnify,
lug-glass shows a coat of dead skin, watery
and oily exudations which serve to hold
dnst and fibers from clothing. Water will
not remove nor pass through this layer en
tirely, alcohol will not Immediately cleaBje
it Steam and spray, or mist dissolve this
coating, and alkalis and soaps clear it away
Only the scouring processes of the blood,
aided by warm alkaline baths will keep the
skin, in its parity, velvet to- the eye, soft t
the touch. This regime, pure feed,, pur

aaeties to be denoaaeed are tboee palate and

any degree.
The latest practice makes a revolution in
cosmetics and skin medicines. Glycerine is
foand almost noa-absorbable bv the skin.
and produces so much irritation that it falls
into disuse by dermatologists. Like all ir
ritating applications it tends to produce
down on the face. Glycerine jelly is the
jelly of starch combined with glycerine,and
forms a nice fixative for the hair, but is not
highly serviceable to tbe skin. Dr. TJnna,
the distinguished German authority shows
that the sole office of fats on the skin or
body is to prevent evaporation of sweat and
retain animal warmth. The laver of fat
serves as a layer of clothing, and nations
who annoint themselves do it as a protection
from heat or cold alike. Olive and almond
oil are i slowly absorbed, lard passes mora
quickly and is considered superior to ban
doline for promoting absorption of drngs,
while vaseline pot only is not absorbed, bnt
contains irritating qualities which discolor
the skin and produce growth of down if
continued. Numbers of private letters the
last year complain of this result from using
vaseline on the face. Its value for the hair,
however, cannot be too highly urged.
Tbe safe cosmetics for the skin must be
without fatty matters as far as possible,
rather alkaline and cleansing, while protect
ing the face from tbe air. Old cosmetic for
mulas renew their significance, for the
makers might not have our glycites and
obites to compund, bnt they knew better
than we the practical value of mucilaginous
pastes and lotions. Foppaa, wife of Nero,
nightly plastered her facewith a paste of
barley flour and asses' milk, and she could
hardly improve on Her practice to-day, bar
ley being mucilaginous and the milk pe
culiarly softening to the skin. Still, the
newest cosmetic,, which is a paste, forming a
pearly film over the face, is rather more ele
gant in looks, than Poppaa's poulticing.
This new preparation, which has hardly leit
the laboratory, is an ideal cosmetic, without
a fatty baso or irritant qualities, protecting
tue a&m 10 iu jeasirioia, aa a mass cannot
do unless fitted to each particular face, and
and hardly then. X do not decry the use of

One of the best ways of freshening the
complexion is to expose it freely to the
rain. A long walk, with the soft rain play
ing in one's face, is a thorough beautifier,
which umbrellas have robbed us of long
enough. Equipped in waterproof cloak
and cap of -storm serge, leaving the face
quite bare, one should walk hours at least
to get the full benefit of the rain. Not
only the rain bnt the vapor-laden air soaks
the tissues, washing the skin more thor
oughly than a Turkish bath, filling out the
shrunken skin, parched by house heat, and
obliterating fine wrinkles. Sleep and walk
ing in the rain are two great aids to beauty
which preserved the charms of Diana of
Poitiers, who never allowed weathertokeep
her indoors, and who never lost an um
brella because she never had one.
Spraying tbe face with water from an
atomizer every nicht for 15 minutes will
soften the complexion withering by indoor
dryness. It is a fact that within a month
after the steam is turned on, or the furnace
going, fine lines and wrinkles begin to show
in faces which the coast fogs had sent home
fair and fresh. The furnace is best, it tbe
air supply is pure and not taken from the
cellar, and the water pan is kept full. But
steam pipes are the unkmdest things to
women's faces known. The only way to
endure them is to keep a pan of water or
-vet towels evaporating constantly on the
register. If we are to have any beautiful
women left the dealers mnst give us some
way of securing moist heat for nouses. Our
women grow aged by their very comforts.

So I go on where I left off last week, and
speak again of the meaning of Christmas in
th6 family. The holy family is the abode
of Christian charity. The father and mother
are always reaching out a helping hand for
the love of Christ and in His name. Ther
are always helping somebody, or planning-'
to help somebody. They are always think
ing abont others; the sick, the afflicted, the
poor, they are always remembering, in that
spirit which, according to St James, makes
up a considerable part of pure and unde
fined religion. They are always about that
kind of gracious ministry which hastha
emphatic promise of our Lord that will be
blessed at tbe last Indeed, it is blessed at
the first, and all the way through the doing
is the blessing. The light in the face of the
helped flashes into the face of the helper.
la such a family it is ablessing for a child
to be brought up. The child catches thoT

child's name. In the presence of snch.a'
Kcuumcipr vurisnaa spirit, 11 is a privilege
tor a child to live. All the unselfishness
which is natural to unspoiled childhood ii
nurtured and strengthened in bim. i
The need of every age is for men and
women who have this fine instinct of help
ing. It is such men and women who make
tbe world habitable and worth living in. It
is snch as these who are following in His
blessed steps who went about doing good.
Boys and girls grow up into such men and,
women out of the training of holy families.1
Another quality which enters into house
hold holiness is Christian consecration. By
this I mean the more directly religious side
of life. By Christian courtesy, or which" I
spoke last week, I intended the love of the
members of tbe family for each other; by
Christian charity I meant the widening out
of this love to take in all that family in
which all men are brothers. And now, by
Christian consecration, I mean the reaching
ont of this lov? upward. -
Daily remembrance of God is made in the
ideal family by the gathering of father and
mother and children to the hearing of the
message of God's word, the utterance of the
common faith, the o Serin ? of the rnmmrm
(prayer. Few influences can bring-religion
scroioie. to cSIIdreh and mako.it to real tol
them as the daily family devotion. It pre
sents religion in'' its best war, as an Inflai "
ence which touches the home and enters,
into daily life, and as
Without it religion is apt to be considered
as a set of teachings meant principally for
Sunday, as something which is shut up ia
a dark church six days of the week and
guarded by the minister. This is aa 1
wrong as it can be. The mis
sion of the Christian religion is the
sanctification of common life. The repre
sentation of the Christian religion to every
boy ought to be his father; and to every girl,
her mother- There they shonld look for
their ideal Christian. There they should
turn for religious guidance and instruction.,
That father and mother know not how much
they lo(e, whose children, coming to the
age when great thoughts begin to crowd
upon the soul, and great questions begin to
clamor for answer, and the spiritual self
comes to be conscious of its being, have to
turn to some one else for sympathy for satis
faction. In tbe holy family Sunday is a sacred
day. Sunday-is not the Sabbath. The let
ter of the fourth commandment does not'
touch it It ia not a weekly-recurring op-t
portunity for scaring and torturing chil
dren. The whole meaning of the Christian!:
Sunday is in the name which St John
gives it The Lord's Day. And the spirit of
it is indicated in the words of the psalter:
"This is the day which the Lord hath made,
let us be glad and rejoice in it" Sunday
is a day to rejoice and be glad. Itjix a day in'
which to make children happy. But it la
the Lord's day. It is a distinctively re
ligious day. He who knows what the'!
Christian religion, is sees no incongruity "
here. Tbat a religious day should be an
uncommonly- happy and delightful day

The day may be made notable and desira

which shall be brought out on Sunday.
In the holy family Snnday is made a resi-ff
day by a distinct change of occupation.''
People do not get rested by laziness. Best-'i
comes by t change of scene, of thought, ot'
work. Different books and. papers to readfi
mark the day; all chosen with the remem-S
brance that Sunday is the Lord's day, andg
yet with tbat wide and true interpretations ;
