covered with decorations earned for
meritorious services in their country's
interest. The ceremony always takes
place in the grand hall of the palace, a
room built expressly fur the purpose,
which, upon the occasion of yesterday,
was tilled with as brilliant a gathering
of ladies and gentlemen as a must
formal and ceremonious court could
. bring together. There was nothing
simple about it, but, upon the cou
1 trary, it was as imposing and impress
ive as human display could make it,
presenting a spectacle at Mice novel
At eleven o'clock in the morning the
two Chambers attended church in a
body, and upon the conclusion of di-
' vine service repaired to the hall, where
they awaited the coming of the King.
, My invitation reuuired me to bo pres
ent at twelve o clock, and knowing
that an Invitation from a King means a
command, I was prompt in my attend
ance, although it was a full iiiilf hour
before' the trumpets sounded the ap
proach of his Majesty, and we re
paired to the gallery mi the hall re
erved for our accommodation. The
evidences of the coming event were to
, be seen by the great crowds of people
tm the streets leading to the palace,
and in and about the court.. I have
often been impressed with the orderly
conduct of a Swedish crowd. They
are a piict, well-behaved and orderly
people, making no sign of approval or
disapproval, but ipiielly satisfying
their inordinate curiosity by silently
' standing and looking at w hat may he
seen. If there is any enthusiasm it is
nil pent up and never permitted to un
cork itself alter the fashion of Ameri
cans. The stairw ay leading from the court
to the room in which f was received is
' a broad, winding one, and on this oc
casion contained two rows of uni
formed guards, with crested helmets,
at a present arms. Through this line
of soldiery the visitors passed to a
spacious reception room adjoining the
great hall. In this room were sta
tioned the gentlcmen-in-wailiiig, in
brilliant colored uniforms, who waited
the approach of the roy al procession,
and preceded it to the hall. Kvcry or
der is by rank and precedent, and as
every one knows his or her plaVe there
is no confusion or scrambling for van
tage places. The hall is about sixty
by two hundred feet, with a small gal
lery on either side. It displays a very
commendable economy in ' its in
terior. It is- severely plain and
unpretentious. Aside from two
heroic statutes in marble - one of (!us

from the open space to the rear of the
room. In the gallery opposite to the
one it was mv privilege to occupy sat
the Crown lVn ss and the ladies of
the court. She is ft most gracious ami
amiable woman, greatly admired by all
classes for the extreme sweetness and
benignity of her disposition. As each
member" of the court passed into the
hall and took his appointed place, he
paused for a moment, looked up at the
Princess, and saluted her after the mil
itary fashion, which was recognized by
a gentle inclination of the head. After
all of the Ministers, ollicers, etc., had
filed in a detachment of guards, known
as Charles XII. satalites, inarched in
and were placed in the aisle spoken of
above. They wore dark-blue frock
uniforms, surfaced with yellow, with
ye.low-trimmed hats and gauntlet
gloves of the fame sall'ron hue. Fol
lowing these came the pages, bare
headed, dressed ill green silk uniforms,
with white stockings, elasned by a blue
ribbon at the knee. Two heralds camo
next, bearing maces, followed by the
attendants on Prince Eugenie, the
youngest son, who headed the royal
procession. The Prince wore around
big shoulders a long robe of blue vel
vet, ornamented with crowns, and a
crown upon his head. His -three elder
brothers came next in order, wearing
similar mantles, the tails of which were
borne by the chamberlains, the
Crown Prince being distinguished
by having two, while but one
performed this ollice for the other
princes. They took their seats on
either side oftlie. throne, and as soon
as they were seated the grand master
of ceremonies, with his mace, came in,
followed by the King and his attend
ants. Ilis Majesly wore a scarlet vel
vet robe trimmed w ith ermine, with a
large ermine collar about his shoulders;
upon his head was a crown set in bril
liants, rubies and sapphires, while in
his right hand he carried a scepter, and
in his left a roll of manuscript. Three
chamberlains bore up his robe while
others accompanied him on either side.
As soon as he had taken his scat upon
the throne the mace-bearer struck the
lloor once, turned to the King, made a
low bow, when his Majesty without
further formality unfolded his manu
script ami commenced to read his ad
dress. The King has a niagniliecnt
voice, and brought some little dra
matic ell'ect into his reading, which,
from the opening sentence of "(iood
(ienlleinen and Swedish men," to its
close was listened to with marked at
tention. The reading did not occupy
more than fifteen minutes, after w hich
the respective presidents of the two
Chambers made brief responses, the
grand master of ceremonies again sa
luted the King, tinned to the members
of the liet, struck the lloor with his
mace, and the ceremony was sit an end.
The order of departure was the same
as observed in entering the hall each

A story they tell about Andrew Jock,
the veteran railway mail clerk, routes in
well at this time, when they are making
no many changes in the postal service,
leek is the oldest railway clerk in
Maine, and there are few, if any, on the
postal cars anywhere as old us he; yet
he is active, efficient and sharp. Years
ago another fellow succeeded in getting
himself appointed to till Jeck'a place.
Of course Jeck consented to make one
or two trips with him to show him the
ropes. It happened that on the first
trip they made together there was an
accident and the car was thrown from
the track. Jeck caught firmly hold of
the table when he felt the first jar and
came out of the accident unscratched
and not thn least disconcerted. The
novice was flung in a heap into one cor
ner and badly bruised.
"Does this sort of thing happen very
ol ten?" he asked Jeck.
"Oh, yes;" said Jeck. "And I forgot
to tell you that we all have a place to
cling to when it comes. You must have
a holding place purposely fixed to get a
stiff grip on with your hands."
The top of the car was much battered
by time and the new man asked, befryy,
they had gone nfuch further on the
route. "Mr. Jeck, what has made all
these scars in the ton of this car?" .
"That's nothing, said Jeck. "It's
only where my lieels have struck when
I've been tossed into the air by acci
dents such as we have had this morn

appointee said he guessed he had
enough of it, and would go back to sell

The I.fwiston Journal gives a Huston
drummer's experience with a high
priced dog, which he had purchased on
one Of his trips to Maine. The animal
had become suflleiently familiar with
his delighted owner to follow him. so
the young man started to drive to Kead

team, jumping fences ami scouring
among the im-lies. The drummer had
not gone far when the dog played the
mischief wilh a farmer's sheep, 'and the
drummer cheerfully settled for the mut
ton, greatly admiring the prowess of
his dog. A few miles further on, the
animal made a raid on a flock of hens,
and killed several of litem. The drum
mer pulled his w allet again, and paid
the cost of damage.
Well, he had hardly got under way
once more, when that dog saw another
Hock of sheep. The drummer had
bought all the spring lambhccoiild u-e,
so he got out of the huggv and started
for his dog with the whip. Tne horses
became frightened and sprang. Ray

He had no further adventures, but
when he reached Kcadlield. he saw for
the first time that only a small piece of
chain dangled from his vest. When he
jumped into the back of the wagon. the

' WOMEN AND BIRDS.
Faxlilou Which U Inworlhy of
Women wen; once taunted with their
devotion to their canaries. A more se
rious accusation can now be brought
orainst them. The alarming decrease
of American song and shoro birds litis
been deplored by lovers of nut urn for
many years. It has been due in part to
unavoidable causes, such as the drain
ago of marshes, the conversion of wood
lands into farms, the destruction of for
ests and rapid settlement of the country;;
but a much larger share of the extermi
nation of bird-life is directly attributable
to feminine folly. An interesting and
val.iaole supplement of Science discloses
the magnitude of the evil and suggests
legislative remedies. It is plain, how
ever, that the friends of the birds can not
hope to accomplish their purpose by
means of legislation unless they
can appeal successfully to pub
lie sentiment for adequate sup
port and encouragement. Sin
gularly enough, they must begin by de
claring war upon modern fashions
and enlisting the sympathies of sensible
American women. Wanton ami im
provident as is the destruction of birds
for snort, fond and scientific and aina-
.Jciir collections, the slaughter is mainly
conducted tor tne millinery iraoe.
Some of the details of this wholesale
sacrifice of bird-life on the altar of
fashion are of startling significance.
At Cape Cod 40,000 terns have been
killed in the season by a single agent
of the hat trade. At Cobb's Island, on
the Virginia coast, an enterprising
business woman of New York has re
cently succeeded in tilling a contract
with a Paris millinery firm for 40,0oo
bird-skins of gulls, sea-swallows and
terns, at 40 cents apiece. The demand
for egret and heron plumes has ex
tended the linn of slaughter from Flor
ida all along the Gulf coast. In Texas
sportsmen receive orders from New
lork for the plumes of white egrets
in lots of 10,000. The prairie
and mountain vales of the far
West are scoured for birds of
small sizes and every variety of plum
age, and from the Pacilie coa-t hun
dreds of thousands of bird-skins are
shipped annually. Nearer home the
coast line of Long Island, once one of
the favorite haunts of sea-birds, litis been
the scene of indi-crimatu butchery.
Terns and sea-swallows have well-nigh
disappeared from the marshes between
Coney Island nnd Fire Island, which ten
years ago were their breeding-ground.
At Seat'ord, Moriches, Grcenport and
many other towns the slaughter of birds
for t he millinery trade is a lucrative
means of livelihood; and the New Jer
sey coast is ravaged in the most merci
less manner. The land-birds sutler in
'the same way. Robins, gold-winged
woodpeckers, humming-birds, thrushes,
orioles, cedar wax-wings, blue-birds and
meadow larks are shot by the thousand
and the skins and plumage sent to the
shops to be used in frivolous ornitho
logical displays in female head-dress.

can hide the fact of disturbed feeling,
though a strong will and habit of -elf-control
can steady the voice when else it
would be failing and tremulous. Cer
tain voices grate on the nerves
and set our teein on edge, anil
others are just as calming as thev
are irritating, quieting, or like a coin

tone and musical in quality, is one of t In
essentials for a physician the "bed-ide
voice." which is nothing if it is not sym
pathetic by constitution. Whatever its
original quality niav be, the orator's
voice bears the uiiiulstakablo stamp of
art and becomes artilieiality; as such it
may be admirable telling in a crowd,
impressive in address but overwhelming
and chilling at home, partially because
it is always conscious and never -elf-forgetting.
An orator's voice, with its
careful intonations and accurate accent,
would be as much out of place beside a
sick bed as a brocaded silk for a
kitchen girl. The voice is much
more indicative of the stale
of the mind than many people know or
allow. One of the lir-t symptoms of
failing brain power is indistinct ami
confu-eil utterance; no idiot ha- a clear
ol melodious voice; the harsh scream of
mania is proverbial, and no person of
prompt and decisive thought was ever
known to hesitate nnd stutter. A thick,
loose, thirty voice does not belong to the
crisp character of mind which does the

nintiv cathedrals can boast of having
been built in one lifetime, but there are
Russians still living who saw the
Vreneh armv denart from Moscow, to
commemorate which event the Church
of St. Saviour has been erected. In
less than three months after the retreat
of the foe a decree went from Alex
dcr I. that a memorial temple should
be built, and five years later the foun
dations were laid. But not on thn
present site. The Emperor accepted
plans winch, had tnev oeen cnun u

feet, on the Sparrow Hills, between
the routes of the entrance and depart

for a while collapsed, and the architect
and building committee, auer ex

years upwards of 4,000,000 rubles,
were banished and tneir estates con

adopted new plans, and chose
the present site, which has cost, with
embankment, terrace, etc., upwards
of $1100,000, and where, at the out
set, a nunnery had to be r -moved and
70,000 feet of earth displaced, before,
on the 27th of July, 1838, the lay

The building continued slowly to rise
for twenty years, and in 1858 the scaf
folding vvits removed, this latter item
alone having cost 277.0IX) rubles, or
upwards of $200,000 (reckoning the
ruble, that is, at seventy-live cents, as
throughout this letter.) A quarter of
a century more has been expended on
fittings and decorations. The style is
ancient Russian or rather (Iru-co-Byzantine,
the most striking features
of which, to a Western eye, are the live
coppcrcupolas, for the gilding of which
required !H0 pounds of gold, their total

Union Pacific with the snow blockade,
a newly-appointed ollicial in tin- iue
chanictll department of the road found
occasion to make of himself a first
class butt for ridicule. The t,tory as
told by one of his subordinates is this,
in brief: Hitherto it had been the cus
tom to send out heavy trains which
had to break the snow, with four or
live engines coupled together in the
ordinary fashion. The unequal motion
of the locomotives when "bucking" at
heavy drift served to lesson the power
of the attack, because the force could
not be brought into a single impetus,
this circumstance being due to the fact
that the engines were loosely coupled
together. The officials in quest ion, af.
ter studying the problem, decided that
it would be a line scheme to have, the
engines coupled together by mean's of
long timbers placed on cither side, and
riveted strongly to each locomotive.
In this way all the engines would
move at once against i!u. drill and
scatter it to the four winds of heaven.
The thing was tried. F.verv thing
went swimmingly until a sharp cim o
was met. The engines Ix-ing coupled
together in a manner which bfi no
play of net ion. it was impossible to
round the curve. Ilefore the danger
