Old Superstition Which lias Powerful In fluence With European Bridal Conples. Tho municipal statistics of tho city of Marsoillca show tho observer that on tho 28th of April, 1891, thcro were regis tered at tho mayor's ofilco in that town no less than 04 marriages. Why this enormous number? Because, according to au ancient tradition, conples that marry in tho month of May cxposo them selves to great danger death will soon Em i to tho unfortunates, or, at tho very loast, their union will not bo blessed with children. Thercforo a largo num ber of Marscillaiso lovors availed them selves of tho last days of April to join themselves in wedlock. This curious superstition is by no moans confined to Marseilles. M. lo Blaut, a French investigator, ascribes to it an origin in Roman antiquity. Tho Roman poet Ovid said that May wa3 no time for widows to marry or for young girls, and adds that tho imprudent woman who braves fato by so doing will dio early. Plutarch agrees to the truth of this. It may bo becauso of this ancient prin ciple that tho Roman Catholio church has mado tho month of May sacred to tho Virgin. However this may be, tho idea has certainly perpetuated itself with singular persistence. Tassoni, writing about thomiddle.of tho seventeenth cen tury, relates that among tho inhabitants of Ferraras many young nobles and princes who wero married in May died only a few days afterward. "It is tho observation of this strango fact," ho ob serves, "that induced tho Fcrrarese, so it is said, to follow tho ancient custom. " At tho present day tho superstition has not ceased to show itself in certain regions of Italy, in Ronmania, in south Germany, Bohemia, Westphalia, Eng land and France, notably in Saintonge and in thu Covennes, whero every ono acknowledges tho truth of tho proverb, "Tho month of flowers is a month of tears." "Perhaps," said Plutarch, "the month of May is regarded as unlucky becauso it comes between April and June, tho months respectively of Venus and Juno, the tutelary goddesses of mar riage, or perhaps it is becauso May is tho month of tho feast of tho Lemurcs, tho souls of tho dead." Paris Letter. TREE PLANTING IN FRANCE Useless Sand Danes Converted Into Tain able Land With Fines. Tho French thoroughly appreciato the advantages to bo derived from systematic treo planting. Tracts of sand havo been covered with pino forests, and tho word lande, borrowed, as it is thought, from tho German, is losinc its meaninc of "waste." Till a century ago a large portion of tho forest of Fontainebleau consisted of baro sand hills, but tho planting of pines -was begun. A variety capablo of standing tho severest win ters was evidently found, and millions of trees now diffusa healthy and agree: ablo odors, besides furnishing timber for f ueL Tho decomposed fir needles, more over, gradually form a crust of vegeta ble mold, permitting tho growth of trees and shrubs less ablo than tho pino to live on air. Tho - department of tho Landcs, onco a barren region, with sand so looso that peoplo had to walk on stilts, is covered with pines, and tho problem of draining tho subsoil has been solved, as described in EdmcndAbout's story of "Maitro Pierre." Tho losses by firo and anxiety to pro duce something inoro remunerative than pmo aro now, however, inducing schemes of artificial fertilization. In many French watering places dunes havo been transformed into woods, -thus holding out to seaside visitors tho at traction of agrccabloshadoanda change from monotonous beach. Shifting sands havo been prevented from extending in land. In some cases dunes havo been aa quired by companies, which, after plant inc them, havo cut them up into build inglots and havo seen them dotted with villas. Elsowhcro municipalities havo taken up tho matter, and m largo operations tho district or tho department has pro vided tuo funds. London Times. Be LoTrs to Work.

This is a chapter of semiofficial, semi- domestio history, and it is vouched for by a granddaughter of tho hero's fam ily line, a Cbicagoan who now lives on Dearborn avenue Prominent in Mr. Madison's cabinet sat, fourscore years ago, Secretary of the Navy Jones, tho son of u famous shipbuilder, a man gallant not only in spirit, but in dress and manner. His fitness for bis ofilco is attested by the naval histories of the war of 1813. But tho successful secretary had moro wit than hair, and a wig was a sine qua non of his political and social life. All went well with this adornment until tho luckless August day in 1814 when tho British marched from Bladensburg upon Washington. It will bo remembered that President Madison and his cabinet stood not upon tho order of their going on that occa sion, but went at once to a very re tired summer resort Every one knows how Lady "Dolly" remained behind long enough to savo some valuable White House portraits from having their eyes put out by English bayonets, but few havo heard how collected Mrs. Sec retary Jones was in this national. crisis. Presence of mind is said to be promot ed by absence of body. This lady dis played in tho faco of danger presence of both mind and body. As tho secretary emerged from his doorway, his hands full of such family valuables as his agi tated condition had allowed him to.col lect, Mrs. Jones confronted him with tho appalling words: "My dear, you have forgotten my slippers. You must go back and get them." General Boss was almost at his door bringing imprisonment or death, but the unhappy man turned back to hunt the slippers, which, it is only fair to Mrs. Jones to add, were adorned with dia mond buckles. In his headlong quest for these treasures which ho secured his wig dropped off in a dark corner, and ho did not dare to take time to hunt for it nor to attempt tho purchase of an other. Tho shorn appearance of the sec retary, hitherto faultless in all appoint ments of dres3, is said to have very much lessened tho melancholy of the cabinet journey. It is further asserted that dur ing tho time of retirement, no matter how depressed any member of tho presi dential party felt over public and pri vate woes, if ho but glanced at Secretary Jones peal upon peal of irresistible laughter was sure to follow and that the despoiled Adonis cordially joined in theso bursts of merriment Chicago Tribune. A Malar Water Slide. In Perak, a state in tho Straits Set tlements, tho Malays have one form of amusement which is probably not to bo enjoyed anywhere else in the wide world. There is a hugo granite slope in the course of a mountain river, down which tho water trickles about two inches deep, tho main stream having carved out a bed by tho sido of the bowlder. This rock, tho faco of which has been rendered as'smooth as glas3 by the con stant flow of water during hundreds of years, the .Malays men, women and children havo turned into a toboggan. Climbing to tho top of tho rock, they sit in the shallow water with their feet straight out and a hand on each side for steering and thenslido down the 60 feet into a pool of water. This is a"j favorite sport on sunny mornings, astmany as 200 folks being engaged at atimo and sliding so quick ly ono after another or forming rows of two, four or even eight persons that they tumble into tho pool a confused mass of scream in g creatures. There is littlo danger in tho game, and, though some choosertosit on a pieco of plantain, most of the tobogganers are content to squat on theirjhaunches. London Lit tlo Folks. TAIo In Japan. "It is a curious, but accepted truth," comments tibe wife of a naval officer who has resided a number of years in Japan, "that .Americans, as a class, do not long stand up against Japan life.

So many naval officers serving a threo or six years' duty there havo como homo with an incurable com plaint that it is common talk in the serv ice Two admirals have died of abcess of tho liver after several years' residence there, and other officers havo had their health seriously impaired under similar conditions.

About 16 miles from Dugort, in Achill island, out to sea, looking like a thin line of sand in tho waves of the Atlan tic, is tho island of Innishkca. One fine morning our party started to visit it in a trusty hooker. As tho hooker cams in sight of tho shore great excitement was visible among tho islanders, and it was very hard to roalize that wo were still but 36 hours' jojrney from London. Tho inhabitants turned out en masse. Tho women and children in their scanty garments of red flannel crouched outside thoir cabins, while numbers of tho men ran down to the beach and put out in their coracles on chanco of rowing us to land. It wa3 a strango scene and curi ously like a picture platoin a boy's book of adventures. We knew there was a king of Innishkca, and boon a tail, bronze faced man was" pointed out to us a3 his majesty. On landing all the party wero introduced and conducted by him to the palace, where tho queen dowager, with her daughter, bado us welcome in truo Irish fashion. Tho old lady was in her picturesque nativo costume red dress and plaid shawl oyer her head. Tho princess, how ever, had evidently on first sight of the hooker arrayed herself in modern fash ion to do us honor, and we were amused on penetrating into tho reception room to find advertisements from shops in Buckingham Palace road and St Paul's churchyard hung up to embellish tho wall, though only by a favored few could they be read. The island was destitute of any school or means of instruction for tho children, a very small proportion either under stood or spoke English, and there was neither watch nor clock among the peo ple, who had a happy go lucky idea of timo and troubled themselves littlo as to Greenwich regulations. There were no church bells to ring, no trains to catch, no office hours requiring punctuality, so when tho sun was high in tho heavens they would get through their not arduous farming duties, and when he sank in tho great waste of waters they could sleep. The king's word settled all disputes. It was a hereditary monarchy, and his people, so far as ho was concerned, were untaxed. Happy thoso states, thought some of the visitors, whero royalty could be main tained with so littlo grandeur! How ever, I am in honesty bound to add wa found King Philip had other means of filling his coffers besides levying taxes on his faithful subjects and learned tho art of making good his opportunity whenever tho Saxon stranger ventured to land on his shore. But Innishkea has an interest altogether apart from its sit uation, surrounded as it is by lovely views of mountain cliff and rocky head land. On this spot, hundreds of years ago, early Christian missionaries land ed, and on top of a shelly mount half a mile from the beach, are Christian remains of great antiquity. W.estoftha island there stand also the ruins-of a church said to havo been built by tho successors of St Columba. Leisure Hours. Jenny lind. Jenny Lind must havo been the most simple, unpretending prima donna that ever lived. When she first came to Eng land she was bound to sing only at the Royal Italian Opera House, and when commanded to sing at tho queen's con cert she was obliged to refuse. Very sorry to bo compelled to notify this, she ordered her carriage and drove straight to Buckingham palace. She handed her card to an official, who, not unnaturally, declined to tako it in. A higher author ity happened to pass and took it upon himself to present it As soon as ner maj esty saw it she said, "Admit her, by all means. Jenny Lind appeared and said simply that she was so very sorry to bo unable to sing at her majesty's concert that she thought it better to call herself and explain. The queen was charmed with her natural manner, gave her a ccrdial reception and promised to bo her friend. Today. A Fine Follsh For Tinware.
