Why an Indian Rajah "Made a Biff
. Dlnnor.''
Some time ago, I being tlicn an In
tlgnifkant member of tlie army hend
quartern stair ntSinilu, tlio hill-cupitiil
of India, it bi'canio desirable to In
crease tlio number of hill gttttioni fur
the lunimiir accommodation of liritish
troop. Jt was thought thitt the Chor
niountnln, tlio most prominent peak of
which is somo sixty milei from Simla,
would on iU lower ridges afford suit
able site; and accordingly, a commit
too of ollluers was formed for the pur
pose of reconnoltcrlng ami making t
report Thlscommlllco confuted of a
well known General, a Major of Engi
neers, and myself, a humble sub.
Soinowhnl trying work it wiih to get U
tlie Chor, the mad being of tlio most
breakneck description, and the mon
soon rains showing symptoms of burst
ing for our fflpeciiildului'tHtion. How
ever, we trudged ou manfully, climbed
to tlio very topmost peak of the Chor,
which by our aneroid wu made
over twelvo thousand feet, and saw
nothing; for, by evil chunce, one of the
most uinguiliceiit views in Asia was
bared to us by clouds which shut out
very thing except the lirst mile or two
of the hug-backed ridges below us. Dis
appoinlcil, wu descended; and thut
night it was arranged wo Khould sepa
rate mill return to Simla by different
route, so as to nuiko tlie president's
report as comprehensive as possible,
Jn the execution of this idea, I found
myself tlio next dny at it place called
llhairogh, whence 1 proceeded on foot,
for wo bad been obliged to send our
ponies buck, owing to the state of the
road -to a village called Tali. Here at
first I thought of camping, as I had
onto eleven miles up hill and down
dale; but the plucu wiih so bare I was so
anxious to push on, being short of pro
visions, that 1 suddenly determined to
double my march ami make for a fort
failed Itajgmii, and described ss being
twelve miles farther on. Unfortunate
ly, I was dilatory in starling; the
march, as usual, whs longer Hum I had
been led to suppose; the road wan hilly,
and it was not until nine p. m. that I
found in) coif peering through tliedai k
duns in thu vicinity of, my destined
Camp, did I sayf It was very soon
evident that there was to be no camp
forme that evening, unci, what wasstill
more objectionable, nu supper. Slowly
aa i hud walked, my servant with whom
was all niv money, and tlio coolies with
any tent mid kit, were miles behind. It
was too late for such an unkempt ruga
aiullln as I undoubtedly was to disturb
tlie garrison, so 1 shortly made up my
mind to bivouao peacefully under a
true. Just outside the fort, however,
and close to I ho spot 1 had marked out
for my resting place, two natives, bv
the light of a lire, were hammering
onie metal vessel with such animation
aa to w holly preclude the possibility of
leep. To these enthusiasts 1 explained
that I was a snliib, mid suggested tliev
ahould postpone their operations till
next morning. They, naturally enough
Mrhaps, demurred; mid 1 wrangled
and they eouiinued llieir metallic fan
tasia until 1 could stand it no longer.
Thinking, perhaps, 1 could persuade
the local bead man to assist mo in get
ting a night's rest, 1 presented mvelf
at the gate of the fort, a square wiilletl
nelosureuf uoslrength and demanded
admittance. After much palavering
wiih the sleepy sentry, I wss let in
pant the outer wall, hut not into the
Inner part; whereupon, 1 asked that
bead man should bo sent for, and
further clamored for a chair. Seated
sipon this, and curiously scrutinised
by a few promiscuous hill folk, I waited
for some live minutes, wondering whv
sinbody cniito. At Isat a gate ill the
iniirr wall has thrown open, and out
jtotircd a procession, lit with torches
and headed by an evidently high class
alive in flowing while robe.
After the Interchange of salaams,
this iudithlunl, who suUeiiuenlly
turned out U be the tchsiUlar
(administrator of a district), said to
sou with much humility: "Ii your
Honor eut by the government to see if
troops ran be encamped on our hills?"
1 admitted the soft impeschnient;
whcrvu;xm the tehsildsr smiled be
aijrnly, and succession of happy
rtnit and 'lt is lies," ran round the
rest of the assembly, who had grouped
themselves in an admiring circle round
suy chair.
"Ah. jour Honor, we are made very
bappy ly seeing y! The deputy
oommisaiinuT of Simla wrote to our
raluh to say that you and two other
aalulx were coming; but we feared you
bad gone by another war."
This was gratifying, but not to the
pnrpoae. 1 according epUind to
my f.icud my situation.' U'M him to
Uciuiji the nieul-woikers, and
asKcd that my servsnU when tbey
arrived might be directed to my
whereabouts. At this, consternation
reigned on every side, aud the tuhsildul
rieii-lv fainted.
Your Honor sleep under a tree!"
he gssped. "It is not to bo thought
of. I have given orders for a banquet
to be prepared for your Honor; and
your alee ping-room is by this" time
readr. Will your Honor be pleased to
come and see UP"
I followed the obsequious tchsildnr,
and inspected my proposed aleejing
apartment, a small room, with no out
let but the door, and literally stuflud
with carpets, quilt and pillows, evi
dently collected hurriedly for the oc
casion. What pleased me most wa,'
the sight of a bud, which I at once or
dered to be brought oat into a sort ol
inner veranda, not wishing to b
wholly suffocated. I then did Justict
to the "banquet" as a man who bud
trudged gome five-and-twenty milei
over a dillicult country niiirhi
reasonably be expocted to do. Tin
surroundings were rather oppressive,
and the civilities of my host and hh
companions rather overwhelming, bin
I was not in a mood to be critical, aud
it was with considciable self-satisfaction
I eventually sought my couch,
falling asleep almost simultaneously.
The next morning I prepared t
start on another march, -and again I
had an interview with the tehsildai
and the rest of the garrison. I could
rot help noticing that though tlio man
was, perfectely polito and obliginir,
thero wss a change 'In his demeauoi
and in that of nls following. No mon

Whom Shall We Trust In Thru Days ol
DUhoneaty and Crime.
"Whom shall we trustP" Is nn oft
repented question nowadays, and it i
one that is indeed hard to answer.
Men of apparently the most striu'

property than the robber barons of old.
or those desperadoes that sailed upoi,
the high seas in search of plunder.
There indeed seems to be an epidemic
of crimo among men occupying high
positions in corporations ami moneyed
institutions, and the example of one
defaulter meeting with a just punish
ment docs not seem to deter others
from following in his slippery foot
steps. This is, perhaps, because thin
are not looked upon as ordinary crim
inals; a certain air of n spectahiliu
seems to surround them, even in prison
dollies, and Hiey arn regarded as In:
above the majority of their unfortunate
prison associates, when in reality thev
are far beneath them.
It is folly to try and excuse them bv
saying that they d.d not mean to he
dishonest when they began. The)
knew that they were doing wrong
when they took the first dollar, ami
they did not take it almost uncon

would nave us believe. They abused a
solemn trust when they began the pec

ran alter this fact.

these dishonest men have been very
charitable. It is easy to bu liberal
with other pYoplo's money, and some
of the most celebrated highwaymen
have been notoriously free handed in
giving money to the 'needy. "A man
must be just before ho is generous," is
a maxim which many corporation and
bank otllclals should lay seriously al
heart. If this advice is followed it

Pictures by Telegraph,
A Scotchman named W. Gemmil has
Invented a method of sending a picture
by telegraph, by which a photograph
taken atone end of the wire is transmit
ted and reproduced at the other. The
picture is primarily projected on a sel
enium cell placed In the telegraphic cir
cuit which, according to the degree of
Intensity of the light, received, acts up
on thoourrent and through a number of
subsidiary currents connected with an
incandescent lamp, illuminating it with
varied degrees of intensity consonant
wiih the strength of the current.
These successive Illuminations would
give images of corresponding bright
ness to tlio points In the picture thrown
upon the selenium ceil, and the tinal
picture of course would consist of a
series of these points in various depths
of shade. Due can not see what practi
cal use this Invention would be except
as aid to the police departments of the
various cities. '(morel's Monthly.

In the Ceremoiilea.
Few things are more simplo than a
marriage ci remony among the Gypsies,
and a description of a wedding as ro
cently witnessed by the writer, will not,
we believe, prove uninteresting. There
were moro than a score of tents at tho
encampment, whore wa wero tempor
ary guest, and at the opening of each
a tiro was burning, craving and blaz
ing away as early as six o'clock in the
morang of the day which was to wit
ness the marriage of one of the favorite
young girls of the camp. An hour
afterward, and an o!d Gypsy man with
silvery hair and bronzed, wrinkled f reo,
with but one eye, stepped on a little
mound and began playing the violin,
which has but two strings on it. Th
player's opening pieca was the well
known tune, "Haste to the Wed ling,"
to which the young Tgyps es were soon
dancing with great hilarity. Whilo
lomo of tho older worn -n were watch
ing the dancers, othoia were engaged
in culinary preparations. At tho
opening of one of tho tents stood tho
swarthy-looking masculine Gypsy
chief, with his hands in h s pockets,
steadfastly gadug upDn tho dancers.
At a given signal from the ch ef, tho
nr.isio and dancing ceased. Two rows
of Gypsies, with about twelve or
(ift;en in each row, were formed,
stand ng faco to face, being betweon
(our and six foet apart Ilali'-way
down between these rows two Gypsios
hold up a broomstick about eighteen
inches a'lovo tin ground. All being
thus far in readiness, tho chief culled
uut the name of the brllogroom, who
was a very handsome Gyp-y man about
twonty-two years of ago. His hair and
Byes were very dark, and the conforma
tion of his faco strongly indicated the
race to which ho belonged. Ho wore
an olive-colored velveteen coat, red
waistcoat, and a glarinz-colored hand
kiircliii f round his nook. In porson
ho was tall, muscular and well made,
(n obedience to tho chief's command
ho came from a tent nt one side of the
encampment, walked between the rows
of Gypsies stopped over tho broom-
stick, turned round, and then stood
with his arms akimbo wailing the
arrival of his intended wife.
Tho chief then called out tho
namo of tho bride, who came from
a tent at tho opposite sido of ' tho
encampment. She whs about nineteen
years of ago, rather short of stature,
apparently of a healthy and hardy con
stitution, while the pearly luster of hor
eyos and long, dark, glossy hair seemed
to identify Her with the purest remnant
of tho Gypsy race. Sho also walked
between "tlie two rows of Gypsies
trippod very light'y ovor tho broora
st ck, which sho ha I no so inerdono
than tho young Gypsy man, in the most
gentle and gallant m tnnor imaginable,
took her in his anus and completed the
ceremony by giving his new-imulo wifo
s.imo of the to idest kissoi wo ever
hi nrd in our life. Then tho mus'o and
dancing were resumed; tni wnoio or
thu members of tho encampment had
euspende 1 business; preparat'ons for a
good feast werj going on; every faco
looked br ght und every no art scorned
joyous. 1 lio men smoked, the woin-'n
talkod volumes, tho children shouted
nnd frolicked; the old horses gr.t.od
by tho sides of I ho banks, the donkeys
nibbled their coarso food with a self-
satisfied air, and looked as if conscious
that they were to havnthatday'sro-pito
from their weary tils; even the two
or three dogs thjit wore there wuirgo I
their tails as if in ant'eipation of nn
extra feed or of betr-'T and a larger
quantity of rations than usual, even
w thont the trouble of ha ing to hint
before any dinner coold bo allowed
them. Brooklyn Mwjaxiiie.
Why No Mnn In a Position of Trust Khould
lie Allowed to Go I'nnnlcl.ecl.
One of tho reasons for tho numerous
defalcations that have caused such
widespread dismny may bo found in tlie
fact that as a business people wj are
wont to place too much confidence in
men holuing responsible positions. e
are willing to take them at tho valua
tions they put upon themselves, with
out ttopping to inquire whether wo
have any real ground for this or not.
This is a very busy world, and it
seems to grow busier every year. Peo
ple in tha wild rush of competition,
nowadays, have hardly time to think,
and if a man or certain sot of men
assert that an individual is competent
and lion, st we are willing to be) eve
this statement williQiit further exami
nation. It saves time and trouble, we
are apt to think, thou jlt it often does
pettier in thu end, and sometimes loads
to a woful loss of money, and a o m-sc-quenl
deprivation of the peace of mill J
without which life is not very sweet.
No man, however great he may bo.
is above suspicion or temptation, and
he should not bo allowed to go un
watched. Because ho has never yield
ed to the tempter thore is no certainty
that ho may not be overcome in a mo
ment of weakness. Some time the re
gard for human respect, which has for
time kept him upright may prove
his downfall. A fear to face the world
as a poor or an unsucs"ssful man may
lead him to borrow without leave to
save ha name and credit, until he
loses all in the inevitnblo crash.
Though outwardly wo may seem
very different, yet . iuwardly' we all
have the elements of good and evil in
our natures, and no man can say that
the bad may not get tho better of him
in some moment, when the conscience
is stilled by the thought that a tempor
ary difficulty may be bridged over by
a slight deviation from the path of
strict integrity.
There Is no doubt that we throw
temptation in a man's wsy by trusting
him loo implicitly. If we lose by him
under such circumstances we can
blame ourselves in Some degree at
least for the loss, for ire have placed
no checks upon him. Boston Budjci.
