The Grave of Columbus.
It is jrenerally supposed that
the bones of Christopher Colum
bus, the great explorer, are at
Havana, in the island of Cuba,
but recent investigations have
brought to light the fact that it
was Columbus son who was re
moved there. Let us go back to
the first resting-place of Columbus,
for death did not end his voyages.
He died in 150G in Valladolid.
north-central part ef Spain, where
lie was buried. Then he was re
moved farther south to Seville,
and a handsome monument erect
ed by Ferdinand and Isabella; on
it were engraved these werds:
To Castile and Leon
Colon pave a new world."
Columbus had made a request
in his will that he should be buried
in his beloved Hispaniola; and now
this idea was brought forward and
his remains deposited in the cathe
dral of Santo Domingo, Hayti
Here also his son Diego and grand
son Luis were interred.
At the close of the war between
France and Spain, in 1 79", it was
stipulated that Spain should cede
to the French "all the Spanish
part of the island of Sun to Do
jningo,' or Ha-ti. Accordingly
Columbus was once more as then
thought exhumed and conveyed
Ns, to Havana with great pomp and
ceremony. And a slab which
marks the plnee has engraved in

n 1SS, while men were working1
in the cathedral of San Domingo,
thev found a metallic casket which
held human remains; on the
cover under the dust and dirt of
three hundred years, were found
the .words. ''Discoverer of Ameri
ca. First Admiral, most illustrious
and renowned personage Don Cris
toval Colon.1' Every one who was
present accepted this proof that
the body of the great discoverer
had not been taken away to
Havana, but was oeiore their
eyes, and Diego's had been
removed by a mistake, oo, now,
the matter rests in this wav.
Learned scholars are thinking- of
erecting a monument which should
belong to the world, ami not
limited to the gratification of
local or national pride. But such
things move slowly, and perhaps
it will never be accomplished.
Here is a funny item from the

LIVINGS AT LIMA.
Some Curious Effects of the Protrac
ted War with Chili.
Inm the ew Yrk miu.
A gentleman who has just arriv
ed in this city from Lima told a
Sun reporter yesterday of the curi
ous effect that the war has produced
upow the price of commodities in
I'eru. The paper currency of the
country has depreciated to such a
degroe that it takes $11 of that
liHMiey to buy one of gold; and
many articles leing purchasable
only with gold coin or its. equiva
lent, their cost has been in conse
quence enormously increasea.
This is the case with all articles
sold by the foreign merchants of
the country, they have determined
to conduct tleir business only upon
a coin basis. A pair of slaves, for
instance, will cost all the way
from S2." to SCO or $?(). The
gentleman who imparted this infor
mation said that the passage for
himself and his wife, from Callao
to New York, cost 8,000 in Peru
vian currency. Ordinarily the pas
sage would cost In gold, for two
persons, something over 700.
With the price of native product-.,
however, and with the wages
of labor, rents, and hotel and res
taurant charges, the case is differ
ent. "While these have advanced
somewhat, the increase has been
more trifling in comparison with
the depreciation In the currency.
Board at the best hotels is not
over S-i a day in paper, restaurant
charges are the same in propor
tion, and rents have advanced but
sliirhtlv. The result of this singu
lar disturbance in the equilibrium
of prices is a condition of things
decidedly favorable to the for
eign mercantile community and to
strangers well provided with coin.
A shopkeeper will sell a hat for
0 in paper, and get two weeks
board for the same amount at a
good hotel, or he will seil a 50
watch for "5), and pay a year's
rent of a good house with it.
The experience of a party of
oflicers of the United States war
vessel Lackawanna, who took an
excellent dinner shortly after their
arrival at the best restaurant in
Lima, was mentioned in illustra
tion of this peculiar discrepancy.
There were six in the party, and j
they had, besides a very good din
ner, several bottles of wine. The
bill for the wliolc entertainment
was 00 p"er, which they ettled
by aying less tlian $0 in gold.
The wine alone would liave cost
more than tliat in New York.
The native jmpulation are com
pelled to yield to the necessity of
the situation, and accept the pa
per currency without changing
their prices in proportion to the
market value of the money, but
tlie foreign population refuse to
do so. A foreigner going to Lima
now with little gold could live
comfortably for a small outlay.
He could board at a first-class
lotel for thirty-five cents a day,
hire a horse for the same amount,
a servant for that much a week,
and rent a house for $3 to 4 a
month. The Peruvian bouse
owners who remain in Lima can
get along for the present, since if
their rents are cut down so is the
cost of food and service; but those
who have tjuit the country in con
sequence of the Chilian invasion
dn not fare so well, with their in
come, reckoned by the gold
standard, reduced to about one-
tenth of whnt they were a vear or

A CLEVSR SCHEME.
How a Detective Persuaded a Fash
ionable Girl to Quit the Stage.
St. IxmK hiMican.
Miss Susie 1? was desirous
of becoming an acttcs. Tliough
not over seventeen summers, she
had for years jmst been or opinion
that she possessed histrionic talent
slightly inferior only to that of the
About a year ago she applied to
Manager for a then vacant
situation, deemed by the profes
sion to be scarcely above that of a
dresser. Tlie manager at first en
deavored to dissuade her from en
tering a stage career, but subse
quently, at the opening of the
present season, gave her a posi
tion, the arduous duties of which,
he imagined, would create in Miss
Susie's mind a distaste for the
In this the clever manager was
mistaken. The young lady's ambi
tion was proof against the call
boy's sneers, and the super's
jokes. "With her talent was its
own fruition. She had neither the
mental or physical ability to quali
fy her for any prominent role, but
out of the ineffable courtesy the
manager allowed her to retain her
situation some six or seven weeks.
By this time the jokes of the dif
ferent members of the stock com
pany and tlni gibes of the under
lings had become so intolerable
that the lady amateur expressed
her complaints. They were re
ceived in a becoming spirit by the
power that is. ami remedied by an
intimation that owing to the dul
ness of the season the complaint's
services would be no longer re
quired. Had the matter ended
here ail would have been well, but
as he saw a small rivulet coursing
down the girl's face the manager
added he would probably be able
to employ her again in a short
time. The maiden wiped her
eyes, picked up her skirts and left.
For a month no one heard of
her. At the end of the month she
tripped into the manager's office
and reminded him of his promise.
That functionary was busy, and
rashly told her to call again. To
his great consternation and the in-
tense amusement of his friends,
she did call again. iut twice only.

several weeks. She became a
ventablo I;urboMr. lc haunted
the stage and bored the aetoi-s.
She was the otic great, constant
trouble of the manager's life.
Some days ng a gentleman, who
had become somewhat familiar
with tle situation, suggested to
Chief Mf-Dotfougli the advisability
of- detailing a detective to deter
mine whether the lady was not
mentally unbalanced. The detec
tive reported a mania for the stage,.
and encouraged by liope of reward,
laid a plan to cure the patient.
He spent much time in forming
the lady's acquaintance. lie gained
het confidciiee. Jle told her tales
of the French drama, where he had
figured as the detective of the
play, and told her of the stage
beauties and leadinjr artistes with
out number. He told her of girls
that had aspired to histrionic fame
and who, because not possessing
such wealth of talent as she was
endowed with, had drifted to a
lower social josition. lie enlisted
her sympathy in behalf of these
dramatic wrecks, and undertook to
show her tlie life of those whom
the stage, as he said, had made
members of the under world. He'
took her to .several variety per-
foriuances, the better mes first,
the worst ones last, and thou by
etsy gnidntiows Jw reached house
where the srirls were deddediy
At each plnee tbey we toUl by
j girls, who liad been previously
s thoroughly drilled by the detec
tive, sad stories of their fall from
grace, due to their pitssiou for the
tinsel ami glare of the stage. The
ruse was successful. As the de
tective led her out of the last
Ikhisc, the girl with eyes full of
tears tremulously but earnestly
framed her renunciation of all de
sire to be an actress or a star. As
tlai blaze of the footlights burned
dimmer she saw higher the light of
iKine. She resolved not to be her
own temptation, and determined
to lead a humble if necessary, but
at all hazards a pure life. The
detective's report concludes with a
statement that although to effect
his task he had wrongfully slander
ed the stage in general, he had re
lieved the theatre of a serious
bore, and perhaps saYed the virtue
of a freakish girl.
