Philadelphia, April 22. Lieutenant
Thackeray says, while Miss Elizabeth

the $100,000 fund, because it was to be
iven as a token of the subscribers' love
?or Sherman, the publication in the New

an improvident man, has caused the
family much annoyance. He was just
"At the lowest estimate," remarked
Thackeray, "Miss Elizabeth Sherman
ana ner sister and brother Tecum sen,
have an income of $3000 a year. - This is
sufficient to live comfortable on. Be
sides, General Sherman left a great mass
of war correspondence of historical value.
Many publishers recently asked access
to them. In this way the estate will be
very valuable. Then, too, there will be
a good income from the general's mem
oirs. Miss Elizabeth Sherman and sis
ter are sorry so large a fund as $100,000
should be raised.
THE POSITION OF RUSSIA.

Secretary iiiaine snouid make no mis
take about the position of Russia in the
coming arbitration ot the ttennng sea
Question. I know the views of the gov

to hold it responsible lor my words, in
JY J . 1 " . 1 " 1
me nrsi pi ace mere is noimng on record
to show that Russia intended to convev
to the United States any special rights
in the open waters of ienring sea.
Alaska was the result of private negotia
tions between Baron Edward DeStockf
and Secretary Seward. , Russia purposly
left the question of special jurisdiction or
special privileges in the sea out ol the
bargain. The whole matter, so far as I
can ascertain, was intentionally put side,
and any attempt to draw Russia out of
this vague and reserved position would
have been evaded or resisted.

An Englishman Coului n.
Little Marshall P. Wilder, tbe famous
merrymaker, is perennial, and has a hu
morous skit for every hour of the day.
This is one of his latest, illustrative of
an Englishman's appreciation of humor:
I have been in England, and I have
studied English humor. Its fundamen
tal principles are not related to the
American article that raises a cyclone of
laughter. An Englishman was dining
at a swell hotel out west, and after he
finished his regular, dinner he asked for
sweets. A waiter from the Bowery had
gone west for employment, and wa
waiting on the particular table at which
the Englishman sat. "
"And phwat ia sweets, euri asked the
The Englishman finally explained that
he meant dessert, padding, etc.
"We 'ave apple and mince Fie," said
the Bowery man. J
"Gave me mince pie."
"What's der matter wid der apple"
pie?" asked the waiter in a hard, I-don't-care-a-continental
tone of voice. Many
heard the remark and laughed. An hour
later I happened to meet the English
man, and he asked me if I heard the
waiter ask him what was the matter
with the apple pie. I said 'Yes.' Then '
the Englishman naively asked me:
"Well, what was the matter with the .
apple pie?" New York World. '
Many Roman and Greek epicures were
very fond of dog's flesh. Before Chris-.
tianity was established among the Danes,
on every ninth year ninety-nine dogs
were sacrificed. In Sweden each ninth
day ninety-nine dogs were destroyed.
But later on dogs were not thought good
enough, and every ninth year ninety
nine human beings were immolated, the
sons of the reigning tyrant among the
rest, in order that the life of the monarch
might be prolonged.
It has been concluded that whatever
preservative is to be applied, the timber '
for piles subjected to the action of sea
worms should first be charred, so as to
kill any germs near the surface, open the
pores of the wood for the antiseptic, and
destroy the nutritive matter upon which
the worm lives while beginning its ac
tion. . ' .
A Scotch writer gives a list of instances
which tend to prove thatluscoontrymeo
are willing to suffer great extremity for
learning. He mentions one young man
who, though of fine manners and aristo
cratic appearance, dined bnt three times
a week, and men upon a hot twopenny
pie. . . . -. " '
Lord Eldon introduced a bill into the
British 'parliament for restraining tha
liberty of the press, and one of the honor
able members moved as an amendment
that all anonymous works should have
