Joseph Cook calls himself a ''pan

"Wattersox has made a new word
liripoop. A liripoop is a Democrat

M. E. Lewis, of Idaho, is a very
particular man. He has written to
the superintendent of Castle Garden,
N. Y., for a wife, saying that lie has
searched the country for 300 miles,

A quantity of liquified carbonic
acid is kept in the steam fire engines
in Berlin. On arriving at a fire it is
allowed to escape into the steam cyl
inder, when its expansion drives the
engine until a sufficient steam pres
sure can be obtained. A gain of four
or five minutes in setting the pumps
at work is thus effected.
Sugar, perhaps, has never been so
cheap since it was first produced as it
is to-day. The reason assigned for it
is the unprecedented yield of beet
sugar in Europe far in excess of the
demand there. The United States
is therefore the only market for
cane sugar, and the increased
supply has beu followed by a re
duction of prices. The effect on
Cuba has been very disastrous. The
total value of the crop, it is reported,
will not pay the government taxes.
'Quakantixe"' is a Venetian inven

Under the law then enacted all mer
chants or travelers from the East
were obliged to remain forty days in
the Lazarette, or house of St. Laza
rus, before entering the city. The
regulation was speedily adopted in
every European country; and al
though tho time has been much
shortened being now no longer
than is found necessary for assurance
that no contagious disease is brought
the old name, derived from the
forty days of detention, is still re
tained. The year so far has been a tolerably
fortunate one for the crowned heads
There have been many explosions and
assassinations on paper and in the

and the rest are as usnal. The at
tempt recently made to wreck a train
in which Francis Joseph of Austria
was supposed to be in proved happily
abortive. It was the wrong train. It
is better to be "sat upon" rnetaphori

Chicago, than to be blown up like
Alexander II. at St. Petersburg. Tho

The practice of giving prizes for
excellence in the ordinary studies of
a college curriculum has been super
seded by a western seminary with
view of impressing upon the minds
of the maidens the importance of
practical knowledge. The girl who
makes the best loaf of bread is pre
sented with a miniature loaf made of
gold. The wisdom of such a course
is apparent to the most superficial
observer. Good bread-maVprc n
scarce and their efforts in that line
are always appreciated. While beau
ty, grace and learning are potent fac
tors in winning a man's heart, the art
of bread-making invariably proves a
greater attraction. The fair maiden
who can transform a mass of quiver
ing dough into a light and airy loaf
of bread is worth her weight in gold
to the man who wins her for a wife.
Bread-making should take the lead
ing place among the arts and sciences
taught in seminaries for the fair sex.
Englieh papers are prone to blun
der when they write about American
affairs. The London Times talks of
the "inelasticity" of American parties
as if hard and fast lines were kept
hero from decade to decade. It is no
more true of America than of Eng
land. There somo boroughs and
counties havo been counted on for
one party or the other with as much
certainty as Vermont has been reli
able for the Republicans or Maryland
for the Democrats. In England, as
here, there are closely balanced
states and constituencies that never
can be counted on in advance for any
party. The elasticity of American
parties has been very marked during
the last twenty years. It is true that
at each presidential election during
that period the result has been a Re
publican president, but once the
Democratic candidate got a majority
of the popular vote, and twice during
that period the Democrats have had
control of the house of represent
atives, and have been very close to a
control of the senate, while state
governments have changed all round
the Union. The few Tory interludes
in the history of British politics
during the same period do not give
the Times much high ground to
preach about elasticity.
