According, to A rchdeacon Wright,
leprosy is being spread ail over trie
world by Chinese emigrants. They
have carried it to California, New
Brunswick, the Cape of Good Hope
and the Sandwich lolands, where it
was previously unknown ; and either
ihey have brought' it into Europe
themselves or it has been brought by
Europeans who have been brought in
contact with them. All the specialists
in skin diseaee in Taris are said to
have lepers among their patient, sol
dierp,- sailors, merchants, sisters . of
charity, missionaries and others. Epi
demies of leprosy have broken out in
more than one of the provinces of
Spain, the disease having been brought
home by sailors. There are lepers in
the hospitals of London, Dublin and
Glasgow. ln fact the two points to be
borne in mind are themselves suffi
ciently tuggeetive of grounds of alarm,
the first being that the disease itself
has of late years increased in activity,
and the second that, in more or less
degree, it is to be found all over the
world. Any accidental circumstance
which might develop its virulence
would at once produce a world-wide
epidamio. The train is laid and needs
nly to be fired.

The chief entrance at Garibaldi's old
home at Caprera lead directly into
the kitchen. A few bare rooms with
white crested walls Join it. and In some
of them beds have been put np for
Garibaldi's family. In the garden
grow only red flowers; it looks as if a
bloody dew had fallen from the sky.
Through the yard the rooms are
reached which Garibaldi inhabited to

traits of Nullo and the two Cai roles
who fell at the Vitla Gloria, and a ateel
engraving of the Prince of Wales hang
on the walla. All have different
frames; the glass of some of them Is
broken. There is also a miserable
little oil painting representing Italia
thrusting her dagger into the heart of
In the small library the few books of
the man who had not read much stands
on two old. rickety bookcases. Some
of the books are turned upside down,
and there is no attempt at arranging
them. Most of the books are English,
among them Cobdea's works snd many
English translations of Italian books.
A volume of Petosi's poems translated
into Knglih attracts attention by iu
worn binding, and next to it stands
enriou and characteriffUe of the bero
of bloody battles with the child-like
heart "Paul et Virginie." Many a
volume on agriculture and "La Roo
ms ine Economlque" show that Gari
baldi was also a student of economie

cobwebs, lie the printed parliamentary
paper, from the library, yon enter

which, on June 2, 1882. Garibaldi died
at the age of seventy-five; near the
Window stands the poor camp-bed, as
it stood at the moment of his death.
From It he could see his beloved set
and the coast of Vorsica. The parish
of Livorno has put a simple bronxa
railing round the bed. Wreaths lie oa
the coverlet. One of them bears the
inscription: "The Italian Free Masons
to Their Grand Master." On a round
table in the midst of the room are three
books, Dante's "Divine Comedy." an
album with the photographs of the
"7honnd." and Michand a "Cru

A Qare Profraalaa Orls1S)t4 by a Taaas
Two young men who spend the day
and a large part of the evening on
Chetnnt street are paid to do so. They
are both well-known figures and gen
erally they travel together. They are
professional window grtzers. The
young men, in common with every
body else, know that to attract a crowd
to a window all one bsp. to do is to
stand and gaze into that window. Ia
a short time ten or si dozen people will
b a-azing with him. They were down
to hard pan on their oppera. so to
speak. Onaof them went to the pro
prietor of a men's furnishing house on
Chestnut street and told him tht for
so mn eh a week he wonld guarantee to
attract more attention to his window
than all the displays that could be laid
out. The proprietor was struck with
the idea and gave it a trial. As a con
sequence there wsts a crowd at his win
dow nearly all the time. The yonng
man wonld walk up to the window with
his friend and stand gazing there until
a crowd of a dozen or fifteen were
standing with them. To keep the
crowd moving he would walk away,
and that started the break in the
crowd. The performance was repeated
every ten or fifteen minutes. The
young man went to other stores along
the street, unfolded his plan and
pointed out the success of it. Ia a
short time he had the whole street from
Ninth to Broad on his beat, and be had
to take his friend into partnership, and
he makes plenty of money.
JI other window-gazers do not rt
onto the idea and get into the business,
these two originators will shortly estab

cities. Philadelphia Kewx.
