SAFETY ON THE WATER.
Tho Inspector's Department' Claim of 1
Undent Work. j
Nearly 700,000,000 peoplo carried on i
American steamers dnring tho last fiscal
year and only 255 lives lost, of -whom
but 00 wcro passengers, is tho promi
nent fcatnro of tho now annual report
of Supervising Inspector General Dn
mont of steam vessel inspection servico.
This is n smaller mortality among tho
sanio number of people, wo havo no
doubt, than if thoy had all staid at
homo and went regularly to bed, to say
nothing of traveling by rail. It proves
again what wo havo often remarked
that travol by American steamers nndor
tho system of inspection now enforced
is tho safest that could possibly bo de
vised. Thirty-fivo of tho 0G passengers
abovo referred to lost their lives in ono
disaster tho sinking of tho tugboat
James D. Nicol off Sandy Hook on a
Sunday in Jnno last, and General Du
mont states that this disasterwas solely
-duo to tho fact that tho tug was being
navigated by a person wholly inexpe
rienced. It is fnrthcr stated in tho report that
of tho nearly 11,000 boilers inspected
accidents causing tho loss of lifo havi
occurred to but 15 of them, defects in
upward of 700 being detected and reme
died; also that of 100,274 nowlifo pro
servers examined only G-i wero found
deficient. This statement shows that as
great caro is taken in tho inspection of
equipments to prevent disaster as in the
machinery omployed to run them and
tho men who man them. In regard to
tho latter no less than 88 applicant? for
master's and pilot's licensed wcro ro
jeeted dnring tho year on account of
color blindness, although 1,544 passed
tho tests. All of which goes to show
that tho traveling public and tho steam
vessel fraternity as well liavo every rea
son to rcposo confidenco in tho inspec
tion system as at present managed.

DANGER IN PERFECTION.
A Prince and a Baron Imitated a'Staj
Tip to tho KllUn? Point.
It would bo difficult to find onjrecord
a stranger hunting adventure than that
experienced by Princo Hohenlohc, son
of tho German chancellor, and Baron
Vietinghoff recently. They wept ont
together to shoot stags and agreed to
decoy tho animals by imitating their
call on a special horn. The hunters
separated, each accompanied by a game
keeper, and went in differentdirections.
During tiio courso of tho day they ap
proached each other, and each heard
the other's decoy call and believed a
stately stag was before him. Imitating
tho heavy steps of tho animal, they
noisily drew still nearer. Tho imitation
of tho steps and call was so well done
that they finally arrived within ten
races of each other without 1 perceiving
their mistake.
Tho thicket was so denso that they
ccnldnotsce through it. Both stood
still, repeating tho challenge from timo
to time; f aoh stoll ihrmlv Delioved that
real
ing, nreelthnco rapidly in the direction
of tho supposed game. Tho first millet
glurxcd off tho cartridgo belt of Baron
Vietinghoff, tho second struck-his-watch
and sprang off, tho third fell dead from
his pocietbook well filled with papers.
Tho yonag baron, though hit three
times, stood nnwonntled. Ho was sc con
vinced that not his fellow hunter, bat
a stag, was before himlhat ho attrlbnt
eel tho shots to tho explosion of car
tridges in his belt and brsictl himself
unfastening his belt for tho parposo of
throwing it away. Tho astonishment of
both when they at last found out what
had happened was great. Berlin Spe

Norway MaUns Arrangements to Suppf?
London Willi Mutton.
London will shortly havo tho advan
tage of another meat supply this timo
from Norway which, according to tho
London Telegraph, is perfecting ar
rangements for supplying tho English
metropolis with as much mutton, alivo
or dead, as it can sparo for exportation.
Systematic experiments wero mado re
cently under the supervision of the
SUvanger Agricultural society, and tho
results wero so satisfactory that in tho
approaching cold season it is to be re
peated on a larger scale.
It appears that SO sheep, each weigh
ing about 100 pounds, too fattened
for a week or so until they turned tho
scale at from 115 pounds to 123 pounds.
They wero then shipped to London,
where they realized an average price,
after deducting commission, of about
$7.50, and as tho total outlay had only
been about G.50 per head there was a
net profit of nearly $1 on each animal.
Forty wero also sent over with tho
skins, hoofs and interior intact, but on
theso threo was an average loss' of 10
shillings per head, partly cxplainotl by
tho skins being damaged through! bad
packing.
Nevertheless tho Stavaugcr socuety
has conio to the conclusion that ,tho
business promises to bo rcmuaierari,e,
and tho English peoplo havo' thus an
additional guarantee of an t adequa to
supply of mutton.
A Tyrannical Landlord.
According to Air. Labouchore in fton
don Truth, tho Duko of Beaufort, ono
of tho most tyrannous of tho landlords
of England, assumes to dictato all tho
affairs of tho town of Stoke-GitToid.
His graco took objection to th'o election
of Admiral Closo as a chnrchwcattou
and served notices to quit on tho tenant
farmers who voted for him. Tho duko
afterward 'announce:! that ho wrould
withdraw tho notices only on coucStiou
that tho admiral resigned. In ordorthat
tho farmers should not suffer, tho . idmi
ral did resign. It now appears tliEjt Ad
miral Closo himself was a tenant of tho
dnke, and ho alfo received a noticolo
quit his house, which has just expired.
Ho h:n practically been evicted becauso
he was chosen churchwarden without
ducal approval.

General Cassias 31. Clay's Wcddlnff to His
riftccn-ycnr-old Word.
Tho only witnesses- to tho niarriago
wcro JlcClellaud Eichardson and Dr.
Cassius Clay Smith, tho latter a physi
cian of Richmond, Ky. Dr. Smith re
fused to say anything about tho wed
ding, explaining that ho had promised
General Clay not to do so.
It was learned that tho ccromony took
placo in tho sitting room. Tho brido
was not dressed as brides usually are.
Sho woro a plain dark dress, was bare
headed, her long black tresses hanging
in an almost disheveled mas3 down
her back. Sho woro no gloves, had no
orango blossoms and carried no brido's
roses in her hand. It was asimplo cere
mony. Tho girl, who had remained sit
ting until General Clay and tho magis
trate arose, got np from tho dtvan and
took her placo besido lftr whito headed
bridegroom. It was a touching scene.
Tho man who had led admiring thou
sands in a crusado for human liberty,
who in his youth was a perfect Apollo
Bolvidero in appearance, if not a Na
poleon in the canso of abolition, stood
as meekly as a littlo child, with an ex
pression of nnspeakable happiness npon
his timo worn but still fresh and almost
yonthful features, and by his sido that
simple, trusting country girl, a3sbys3
a gazelle, knowing as httlo of tho groat
world in which her venerablo husband
had played so conspicuous a part as tho
most untutored daughter of nature.
Tho ceremony was very brief, and when
it was over tho bashfnl child went back
to tho kitchen, and General Clay and
his family physician sat talking by the
largo open fireplace, in which glowed
two bushels of burning coals.
And thus was celebrated ono of tho
most remarkable, weddings that ever
took placo in tho United States. Lon

HIGH TREASON.
Paris Greatly Esclted Over the Disclosures
rollowlns the Arrest of Captain Dreyfas.
Tho excitement over tbo spy mania
is still high in Paris. The case of Cap
tain Dreyfus, who is awaiting court
martial, causes extraordinary comment
It is said to bo tho intention of tho gov
ernment to insist npon the extreme pen
alty of death in case ho is found gnilty.
Thero 13 apparently good authority for
tho statement that prcciso particulars
respecting tho transport and concen
tration of the French forces in tho
event of mobilization after a decla
ration of war were placed in the
hands of agents of tho triplo alli
ance. Tho hours of the departure and
rnnninc of trains with rroop3 cn the
main railway lines and also tho branch
lines wero set forth, together with de
tails of tho places at which stores would
bo procured en route. It is asserted that
even tho original documents wero sup
plied to tho intelligence department of
tho triplo alliance at Berlin.
Another story relates that tho disap
,pcaranco of some important paper from
a pigeonhole at tho "war office was fre
quently noticed..- After-diligent search
precise placa txoia:.whicbJiiQMileen
abstractetl. The general staff "also is
said to have been aware that tho Ger
man war office prided itself on its ini
tiation into many of the secrets cf the
plan of mobilization. For a long time
tho French military authorities wero
puzzled, but eventually succeeded in
unraveling the mystery. It will be
quite another thing to prove who has
been gnilty of these acts of high treason.

tions. Her body was found in a lone
soiaio spot, and there was no direct evi
dence to connect Read with the crime.
It was principally his reckless, unsup
ported denials and tho extraordinary
stcxy of his depravity in many direc
tions that finally resulted in his convic
tion. and sentence to death.
It was proved that ho was in the
neighborhood of tho murder when he
asserted he was 50 miles away. It was
also shown that ho had similar relations
with several other women, and that tho
murdered girl was about to become the
mother of his child. Nevertheless tho
evidence was not sufficient to convict in
an American court, and tho prisoner
reaffirmed his innocence in strong lan
guage before the death sentence was pro
nounced npon him. He will be hanged.

BIG PAY FOR TEA TASTERS.
Ono Expert Is Kcportcd to Kecelve a Sal-
cry of 90,000 a Year.
"Since tho Canadian Pacific railroad
was completed and a lino of steamers
established from tho orient," said a tea
stcr to a reporter, "immense cargoes
of tea havo been going thero from Chi
na, Japan ana otner countries, it has
been my business to cxaxmno and tasto
various samples from theso cargoes. I
havo also visited Ceylon and nearly all
of tho tea growing countries of tho ori
ent to observe tho mode of putting up
tho tea. It i3 astonishing tho way they
man ago it adulterate it over there. Tho
packers are so skillful that they slip in
a great deal of inferior tea and work it
off under good brands. This makes tho
merchants who afterward handlo it
complain. Packages of tea of a certain
brand will bo found all that could bo
desired, while other packages bearing
the samo brand and in the same cargo
will be highly adulterated. Ab this tea
is very costly, thero is need of experts to
cxamiho it. They must bo good ones,
for everything depends for the time be
ing on their judgment A taster can
onlj; tasto a fow hours at a time, when
he is weakened and has to take a rest.
Besides this, when ho begins a job of
tasting, ho must tako special pains to get
himself in shapo for it. I was about six
weeks getting myself ready for exam
ining Eonio cargoes in tho warehouses
hero for tho government. Before I be
gan I did not taste intoxicants in any
form and did not even smoke. At the
samo time I was careful not to eat strong
peppers or spices, or, in fact, anything
that could distort the taste. Ono must
bo in as perfect condition, in order to
properly judgo of the teas ho tastes, a3
a horse is when prepared for the Derby.
Ho must be at his best and must feel
that lie is. Tho best tea tasters of tha
country make enormous sums, consider
ing the time employed; 10,000 a year
is a low sum, and oftentimes from $20,-
000 to 530,000 is made, and even more.
1 know a man in the business who made
$50,000. It all depends on his standing,
tho number of times ho is called as a
taster and what ho can endure." San

HE BATTERED HIS OWN CLOTHES.
His Bright Cook Succeeded Ia Gettlns the
Better of Him.
A citizen of Kiev, Russia, found
fault with the dinner prepared by his
new cook anil rashly embodied his crit
icism in catting sarcasms. Tho young
woman heard him in silence. In tha
evening he knocked np against a man
in a deserted little street, and when he
ventured to remonstrate ho was vigor-
ously assaulted. Unable to get the bet
ter cf his adversary, he determined to
do what he could at least to identify
him later on, and with this object in
view tore his assailant's fashionable
clothes into shreds. On his return home,
some few hours later, he found the cook
standing at the door, ready to shako the
dast of his house off her feet Tho gen
tleman, whose wounds and bruises left -

On tho following morning ho discov
ered thai his best clothes in tho ward
robe wero in tatters and his glossy silk
hat an unsigntly wreck. Hastily sum
moning the other servants to tho room,
he angrily asked them what they knew
about tho matter, whereupon the nurse
replied that the cook, in ono of her
freaks of fun, had denned her master's
garments and gone out to walk in them
tho evening before, sticking on an arti
ficial mustache to help to keep up tha
illusion. Then it- dawned urion tha
vrctched man that his assailant of the
day before was tho touchy, turbulent
cook. Less than a fortnight later he re
ceived a letter through the city pest in
forming him, in somewhat Tin grammat
ical but unmistakable language, "You
lied about the place, resTKctedsir, when

Speed of Electricity.
Tho fact is generally Imown that, ac
cording to tho experiments of the late
Professor Heinrich Hertz at Bonn, tho
velocity with which electricity is prop
agated is nearly identical with the ve
locity of light. The identity may be per
fect, but experiments have as yet failed
to prove it so.
la a recent communication to th9
French Academy of Sciences, IT. ilas
cart has shown that tho mean velocity
of electricity, as deduced from experi
ments, is 1SS, 1S5 miles per second.
This is about 1 per cent greater than
the velocity of light, which is 1SG.300
miles per second.
It is believed that if light and elec
tricity do move with exactly tha samo
speed the velocity ascribed to light more
closely represents that speed than the
velocity ascribed to electricity, becauso
the experiments aro most satisfactory
and probably more accurate in tho casa
of light. Youth's Companion.
A Curious Belief.
There is a curious belief among seme
of tho colored peoplo of this city, Mary
land and Virginia. It is no uncommon
sight to see them with a little knot of
kinky hair right on top of tho head, tied
up tightly with a bit cf string cr rib
bon. If you ask any of theso old uncles
or aunties the meaning of the strango
hairdresaiug, they will say, "Why, bun
ny. I does dat to keep my pallet from
falling down my throat and cliokin me. "
