"Ah," said tho mai,nstrato trying tho
enso, "yon should think of tho honor."
Tho defendant sturdily replied, to tho
limazement of tho court, that thero
wasn't much honor to bo got out of 10
shillings a week.
It would seem from this caso that tho
queen pays her farm laborers and work
men generally on her privnto estate from
2 to 4 shillings a week less than tho aver
age wnges in tho district, which is not nt
nil surprising to those who know her
frugal, not to say parsimonious mind.
She would not in nny case read tho in
dignant comments of tho radical press,
because she reads only the Tory Times,
Morning Tost and Whig Daily Telegraph
when nt home, nnd not one of these
would venture to hurt her feelings by
referring to such a mntter. During her
stay abroad sho sees only Tho Times,

swers no thnt is, ho strongly advises
yonng men not to adopt politics as a ca

conditions upon the low estate in which
we find American politics today. How

this passage from Mr. Dcpew's article is
"Every young man should be inter
ested in politics and take as active a
part in the political affairs of his neigh

his business will permit. He should lie
long to some party and understand its
principles. Ho should attend its cau
cuses and do such party service as he
can. He should never fail to vote on
election dny; when there are movements
on foot for reforms necessitated by cor
ruption or to put bad men out of office,
he should be on hand and ready to fight

Tho Iligifest Fresh Water Cargo.
Tho now stoamor Solwyn Eddy, the
largest freight carrier in the world float
ing on fresh wntor, was loaded recently
for her initial trip. She curries the larg
est cargo of wheut evor shipped on the
lakes. A close estimate places her exact
capacity at 150,000 bushels or about US,
000 bushols more than the largest cargo
ever carried on the lukes.
An ordinary f roight car carries about
SOO bushels of whoat, and the Sulwyn
Eddy's cargo is equal to 800 carloads.
A truin containing 800 cars would be
about two miles long. Twelve engines
would be required to draw snob a train.
The cargo of the Eddy, if ground into
flour and mode into bread, would feed
80,000 people for one year. Dotroit Tribune.

tle things? It is a roniarknblo fact in con
nection with the holiday season that at a
large placo of London entertainment the
receipts in the refreshment departmeut
on Easter Mouday were lower than in
previous years by about 20 per cent. The
demennor of tho visitors to this estab
lishment left nothing to bedesired. They
were orderly, sober and in every wnv
well behnved. Yet, for some reason or
other, they or their families did not an.
pear to stand in ns much need of solid
and liquid nourishment as iu times gone
by. This fulling off, it may bo remarked,
was not only or chiefly in alcoholic
drinks. It extended with equal severity
to the nonintoxicntiug cup of tea and

Tillndfoldod For the Wedding Ceremony,
Some unusual evidence was adduced
before Judge Collins in tho divorce case
of Nathan Laborich against Sarah La-
borich. The complainant testified that
he married the defendant in Russia; that
according to tho laws of that country he
was not permitted to see his wife, and
that both of the contracting parties were
blindfolded when the ceremony, which
took pluce in a dark room, was ier
formed. Tho marriago, he said, was ar
ranged by the parents of his wife and
himself, and his parents wore imposed
upon, as he discovered thut his wife was
of unsound mind. Ho came to this conn'
try and placed her in an asylum. Later
she was removed to Elgin, where she is

Would Die RnthcrThan Testify.
Mrs. Cnrrie E. Welch, about S3 years
of age, entered station 2, Cambriilgeport,
late Tuesday night and dropped a note
on the captain's desk. It was an an
nouncement that tho writer intended to
tnko her lifo rather than testify in the
divorce caso of her parents, which was
to bo called the following day. "You
will find my body," said the note, "in
tho Charles river near the Western ave
nuo bridge." A policeman was sent aft
er the woman, who had hurried away,
and in a short time he overtook her and
carried her back. When they reached
the station, physicians were sent for, and
it was discovered that she had taken
poison. She was finally pronounced ont
of danger and was placed in charge of
the matron of station 1 for the night,
and the next day was taken to her home.

nnd lastly theoflicor took from nn inside
pocket a book issued by the Provident

"What is tho cause? Why, tiffico seek'

Faints at the Mention of llluod.
The district court is somewhat unde

the use of gory details. That is prae
tically impossible. The court cannot re

Tho "lliisln" of an Apple.
One end of the applo bears the name
of "basin" and contains the remnants
of tho blossom sometimes called the
eye of the fruit This part of the apple
is deep in some varieties and shallow ami
open in others. This Ib the weakest point
in the wholo applo as concerns tho ques
tion of the keeping quality of the fruit.
If tho basin is shallow and the canal to
tho coro firmly closed, thore is much less
likelihood of the fruit decaying than
when it is doep, and the evident opening
connects the center of tho fruit with the
surface. Professor B. D. Halsted in

Sunday morning when a boy some 8 or

electrolysis In Water Pipes.
A considerable amount of anxiety hns
recent ly been caused, esjiecially among
corporations controlling waterworks, by
tho discovery that the passage of electric
cars has a tendency to seriously injure
tho water pipes of a city by causing elec
trolysis. At a meeting of a waterworks
association an electrical engineer stated
thnt in some cases under his observation
lend pipe had entirely disnppenred by tho
action of the electric current, and a like
result had nttended tho uso of iron, gal
vanized iron, brass and "rustless" pijies.
The corrosive action takes place whoro
the current leaves the pipe and not
where it enters it, and the phenomena
mentioned were undoubtedly owing to
the operation of electric cars. It is sat
isfactory to know that should the eleti-'
trolysis of water pipes become so serious
a question ns it is thought by some it
may, a certain remedy, although it
would Incrense the cost of wnter instal

Mot Vp In American Ceoeraphy.
The congenitul inability of tho British
mind to muster tho trivial details of
American geography was never mow
strikingly illustrated than in the Londoc
Lancet's recent report upon tho Chicngc
wnter supply. This wns a long and vor
carefully prepared paper, whose uiui
conclusions aro doubtless us accurate at
human skill can nniko them, yet iu the
opening paragraph we nre gravely in
formed that a portion of tho sowugo "is
pumped over a lock into a canal, which
carries it fur south into tho Missouri and
eventually into tho Mississippi river."
Evidently Tho Lancet man is blissfully
ignorant of the fact that tho Missouri) a

comes from the other sido of tho MissU
