Cb ad well, Or. ffes ve Ms "THE SAME AaAItf." Sflne statistics Regarding 'the Habit of DrInklsr. There are 999,930 persons, adnlt males for the greater part, employe 1 In the manufacture and sale of liq uors in the United States. This is one to every sixty of the entire pop ulation. These men, mostly able bodied, are taken from productive, that is to say, wealth-producing em ployments. They are a tar on the workers, adding no one element ot prosperity to the common wealth of the nation. At the low wages which all of them could earn they would receive for the 300 working davs of the -year $272,994,000. Who" e:i: estimate the loss of permanent weal l i that this aggregate of wages impli and suggests ? The Federal statistics show that there are in the United States "C0-J. 000 persons daily incapacitated i' labor by reason of liquor." Tin number includes the drunkards, t!u insane, the criminals, and paupen d ragged down to these classes In the direct and recognized influence of using intoxicating drinks. At $1 a day in a year of 300 days the.-f 600,000 persons, placed hors du travail by the drinking habit, could have earned $180,000,000, which, added to the other totals of money cost, and the loss of the service of the army of makers and sellers, estimating these services on the wage basis only, amounttotheaggregateof $1,171,291, r18 per annum. "This vast sum," writes Mrs. Thompson, "is $23 per capita for every man, woman and child in the country. It is nearly equal to our entire gold, silver, and paper circula tion combined. It would build and equip 30,000 miles of railroad; pay the cost of the public schools for fif teen years ; erect and maintain 12, 000 colleges; send out and support 1,200,000 missionaries; pay the en tire national debt of the country, national, State and municipal, in less than four years; construct GOO first-class ocean steamers; erect and maintain 3,750 hospitals, libraries, or homes for the aged; provide one third of the people in the United States with homesteads of 100 acres each ; run the Post- office Department for thirty-four years; support the navy for seventy-five years ; pay our foreign consular service for 1,723 years; purchase at $7 a barrel, 107, 327,359 barrels of flour, and pay the salary of the President of the United States for 23,425 vears !" Tiie a Fellow's Wife. Eat-h man about town knows the good fellow, but how many ever see the good fellow's wife? Come, sur prise her on some Wednesday when a club dinner has taken tlie good fellow away from home to enliven the "Jolly lioys" reunion. Her din ner consists of sandwiches left over from lunch, for it is "cook's after noon out," and better is a cold sand wich and quiet than a hot roast .with additional backache tired woman's constant companion. The good fel low's wife must scrimp herself at home that champagne may flow where the "Jolly Boys" dine. "One must not be called stingy, my dear, it would be ruin," reiterates tlie good fellow, until his helpmeet be comes indeed the biblical spare-rib in her well-meaning efforts to assist her lord's interests. Perhaps you would rather surprise her when the good fellow has tele graphed ten minutes before his arri val that he intends bringing half a dozen strangers home to dinner. Dazed with hurried preparations, her servants more hinderance than help, red with table setting and culinary endeavors, she sits silent at the foot of the table, eating little and often inattentive to her guests from a too sensible solicitude for their comfort. "What a dummy poor Tom has raar rried," says his laughing friend. "Bnt brilliant men usually wed fools," he thinks, as he smooths his silk hat when going away. Tom is a good fellow. There's no mistake about that down town, where he dines nnd wines, and shows his strong white teeth in hearty laugh ter. His wife was a good fellow, too, the boys nt'home used to think, before Tom married her, Of course she is peevish, she has no club dinners, nothing but a succession of worrying servants and encounters with huck sters and teething children, to vary tlie monotony .of her sunless days. She is a good fellow's wife, and tlie glory of possessing a rollicking hus band should be her universal pana cea. Tom does not maltreat his wife. He is simply careless and thought less, reserving his brilliancy for down town and his headaches for home. He knows that George Eliot says: "The best pillow for the head of ge nius is soft, yielding female medioc rity," and therefore because he wants his pillow soft he reduces his wife to that most subservient condition. The good fellow makes 'his companions laugh, but the good fellow's wife provokes a sigh and sometimes a tear from those of her own sex who fiause to consider her too common ot. Philadelphia News.

Young Widows. j As the custom of early marriage, , or rather infant marriage, is widely j prevalent in inaia,tnere is seen a vast number ot virgin widows nere. You might frequently see girls of two or three years married to boys of seven or eight, and many of them becoming widows soon after their marriage. So the number of virgin widows under fifteen is very large. In the last census taken in 1831 the number of such widows in India was estimated to be about two-thirds of the whole number of widows. It is the presence of this large number of infant and girl widows that make the custom of perpetual widowhood the more appalling. The life a widow leads is very mis erable. She is not allowed to wear ornaments or put on fine clothing. She must not take fish or flesh. She has to cook her own food, which generally consists, in middle-class families, of a small quantity of boil ed rice and vegetables and milk. Twice every month she has to fast the whole day, taking no food or drink. A widow in most cases de pends for her subsistence on her brother or some other near relative, at whose house she resides and where she has to perform all the work of a housewife. In many a Hindoo home the widow is both the cook and maid-servant. In certain homes she is subjected to hard treat ment, but in many others, be it noted, her sad lot is most sincerely sympathized with, and care is taken not to hurt her feelings. Exchange. ill ray's Inn. For more than five hundred years a little fraternity of lawyers has nestled within the shadows of the sloping roofs of Gray's Inn. Here at the "box of a shop" under the gateway, Jacob Tonson, the famous publisher, issued Addison's "Cam paign." Also within its courts Lord Bacon wrote his "Novum Organum," which King James declared as being "like the peace of God, which pass eth all understanding." At the gate way also at one time dwelt Thomas Osborne, the bookseller, who gave 13,000 for the books from the Har leian library. The men of Gray's Inn, in times now passed, wero fa mous for masks and revels and for f;orgeous interludes. Hawthorne oved the place, Dickens fitted it into his "Uncommercial Traveler," Pepys wrote about the fashions that were flaunted by the promenade rs orr Sunday after church, and Charles Lamb has embalmed its beauties in an epitaph by saying: "Those are the best gardens of any of the Inns of court. Bacon has left the impress of his foot upon the gravel walks." TPall Mali Gazette.
