most of this copper colored patronage to
a reporter. "Hanging over there on the

series of portraits illustrating the evolu

observe, represents him in aboriginal

pair of pantaloons always the first white
man's garment adopted by the Indian.

shown in the third photograph, it occurs

at this staje, and Mr. Lo goes about in
his skirt sleeveB, feeling very enlightened
for some time before the coat is put on.

Perforated blades for band and circu
lar saws are just now attracting attention
in Germany, and are apparently giving
general satisfaction. Blades of this
character are not entire novelties, but
have been known in modified forms for
some years, says The American Machin
ist As a general thing, however, their
use has been much decried. Still they
appear to have some advantages worth
considering, and many claims of superi
ority are made for them. Among them
is that of reduced blade friction, due to
reduced area of rubbing surface, less
tendency to heat, because of the circula
tion of air through the holes, and econo
my in power. The holes further prevent
the dangerous extension of cracks in saw
blades, and in general make it a com
paratively easy matter to keep the saws
in good running order. New York Tele

Some Feoullarltlea of a Few of Kurope'
To the Odyssey of Prince Joseph Sul
koffjld, who was imprisoned in a Wnatio
asylum at Vionna, escaped to Switzer
land, and once again imprisoned in an
asylum at Brun, has now been added
another chapter. A board of nwdical
men who have been "sitting on" the
eccentric Austrian niil"onaire'uvv de
clared that he is perfeotly saae, and
that what in his case has i pro
nounced insanity was nothing rilfl
nality and eoeentricity, and consequent
ly his Highness the Prince is once again
at liberty and able to pursue Vie uneven
tenor of his ways.
Apropos of Prince SulkuflaWa release,
the Paris Figaro publishes an account of
I number. of other eooerUfln xtewvuwea

Kin? Louis II. of Bavaria naturally
takes the flrst place. Duke TVeodore
of Uavaria, who has recently performed
his thousandth successful operation as
an oculist, is mentioned as the one
member of the Bavarian house whoso
eccentricity is of a useful and laudable
kind. His two august sisters, tho Em
press of Austria and the Queen of
Naples, have also many traits in their
character which mark them at once as
belonging to the eccentric bavarian ace.
In the Ilohenzullern this "particular
ism" has, ever since Frederick William
I. and Frederick the Great, shown itself
in a brutal and cynical t ait. An excep
tion to this rule is Prince Frederick, the
owner of the charming Castle of Rhen
etein, on the banks of the Rhine, who
often shows visitors over his beautiful
residence and explains the treasures of
Lis museum of antiquities.
But the best and most frequent speci
mens of an eccentric nation hail from
the land of John Bull. Among them is
mentioned Mr. Cecil S. (the Figaro
warily suppresses the surname), who,
for many years, made Paris ring with
storit s of his wild doings. Finally gout
attacked him, and he was doomed to
perpetual confinement at home. The
ballet having always been specially pat
ronized by him, Mr. S. started a ballet
in his own four walls, where he kept an
entire stage with all that belongs to it
including costumes of every possible
variety. Five or six spectators were in
vited to the choreographic spectacles,
the artists in which were paid wlt.i more
than princely liberality. Although Mr.
S. could never set a foot outside his
house he always retained his ten horses
and four carriages, which were regularly
driven about in the Bois and on the
boulevards, somewhat like the empty
carriages seen behind a hearse.
Russia, too, has always had her eccen
trie representatives at Paris, but has
now accepted the social law of France,
according to which, among the inhab
itants of the most revolutionary country
in Europe, it is considered extremely
iU-brod to show any eccentricity. The
last Russian of the old school who made
Paris the scene of his exploits was M.
Dimitrl D., whose fame was chiefly ac
quired by bis marvelous capacity for
drinking champagne. In gratitude to
the bottles out of which had come the
chief enjoyment of his life, he collected
the lead papers with which the ctvks of
champagne bottles are covered, and out
of those which he and his friends had
consumed a lead coffin was made in
which the Russian was carried to hi
grave. Pall Mall Gazette. ,
A SILLY PROPOSITION.
An EnglLh Marriage-Reformer Strike!
The suggestion of a marriage reformer
in England that the marriageable age of
both sexes be restricted to twenty-five
years or less has created a sensation and
Las started a discussion that bids fair to
rival the contention over Mrs. Mona
Caird's question, "Ismarriage a failure?"
It should be stated that the proposition
is made in good faith, and also that its
author is a married mqm himself.
Just wby this reformer advances a
theory which he must have known be
forehand was sure to be condemned on
all sides does not appear. Perhaps he is
seeking notoriety, or possibly thinks,
like many other apostles of reform, that
he has found a truth and is willing to
sow seed amidst difficulties which shall
bear fruit generations to come, when his
present appellation of crank will be
changed to that of martyr.
But the discussion is going on in Eu
gland with great earnestness, if that
be called a discussion which Is argued
on one side only. It is quite interesting
to see how the nation rises in arms
against any restrictions being placed
upon marriage. Bachelors hopelessly
wedded to celibacy denounce the plan
with the ardor of a youth about to lead
his bride to the altar. They don't want
to get married, would die of apoplexy at
such a prospect, but like true Britons
they decline to give up any liberty, even
if it is useless to them.
The fair sex, of course, is justly exct
ted over the proposal, and those whose
chances of entering the married state
are least are loudest in denouncing it.
One might suppose that the sex which
suffers most from ill-assorted marriages
might look with some favor on a scheme
devised to lessen the evils arising out
of the matrimonial state, but this is not
the case. The only change that they
want is that the deceased wife's sister
bill become a law.
There is no likelihood of any such
restrictive legislation being passed. The
marriage reformer has struck the wrong
lead. A law requiring every one to be
married before attaining twenty-five
years would be much more popular,
Human experience has shown that al
legislation of this kind has been at
tended with the worst possible results,
Marriage, the most important step of
every person's life, is beyond legislative
control, and although the world can fur
nish many examples of ill-assorted mar
riages, it can point with grea t satisfao'
lion- to STleiaci mat mosio'i tnem result

Two Incident. Which Furnlah Considerable
tf Food for Thonght.
A few davs ago a party of some five or
six school-boys, on their way home,
stopped In front of the homo of one of
their number. The conversation went
from one study to another until it
reached the subject of algobra; here It
stopped; one of the boys declared himself
unable to perform a difficult problem in
quadratics which had been assigned to
him. His companions tried to help him,
but after all hands had failed It was
given up as a bad job.
An old and besotted-looking individual
who was shoveling coaJ a few doors,
away had boon watching the boys for
some time with a look of amusement on
his grimy face. After each one had tried
and failed, he slowly laid down his
shovel, picked up a piece of coal, and,
walking quietly up to the boys, request
ed permission to look at the problem.
After a good deal of laughing it wa3
shown to him, and without saying a
word he quietly set to work, and in a
few moments had correctly completed
the example, writing it out on the pave
ment with the bit of coal. The boys
looked on In wonderment and could
hardly believe their eyes, but were not
slow to take advantage of the stjte of
affairs, and In a few moments the work
on the sidewalk had been transferred to
The coal heaver In the meantime hac
resumed his work, which was soon com
pleted, and the last seen of him he was
disappearing in the side door of a saloon.
On another occasion a party ot lour
men and one woman were seated in the
parlor of a hotel not far from this city.
Adjoining the parlor was a bar-room.
Leaning against the bar, leisurely ttrinkr
Ing, were several countrymen. At one
of the tables sat a tramp half asleep. His
arm was curled up, forming a support
for his shaggy head, which was covered
with a tattered slouch hat of ancient
manufacture. Suddenly, through the
half open door, there came the sound of
music; the loungers stopped drinking for
a moment but almost immediately re
sumed their occupation. Nobody noticed
the tramp. At the first sound he had
raised his head trotn the table, and his
eyes seemed glued to the door through
which the music ime. As it proceeded
he arose and tottered toward it but just '
as he entered the room the musio
stopped. All eyes turned on the tramp,
who was making straight for the piano,
which he reached a moment later.
Lightly running his dirty fingers over
the keys, suddenly he began to play
Mendelssohn's "Wedding March." For
nearly half an hour the tramp sat thus,
playing nothing but the choicest clas
sical music, with a touch and execution
that was itself a marveL The listeners
sat astonished and in silence that was
not broken until the tramp, rising from
the piano, took his hat, and, going
through the bar-room to the door, dis
appeared down the muddy road. N. Y.
VENTILATION IN WINTER.
The Icelandio IMan Used by Soma Amer
Some house-mothers complain of a
large increase of headache as soon aa
the house is shut up and the fires lighted
for winter. One reason is that they
pursue the Icelandic plan of ventilation.
A gentleman spending a night in an
Icelandic house, slept in a room with a
number of Icelanders. During the night
he awoke up almost suffocated for a
breath of air. He awakened his host
and asked if some air could not be ob
tained. The man reluctantly arose, and
going to a keyhole in the side of the
house, pulled out a cork and held It Inhla
nana a minute or two, then with a shiver,
he put It back and pounded it down, say.
Ing they should "all freeze to death,"
and returned to his pillow.
A warm house is an excellent thing in
wintev So are warm sleeping rooms,
despite the old prejudice 6ome still hold
against them. There is nothing health
giving in children shivering half the
night In cold beds trying to get warm.
Many a delicate little one has gone to
Its grave by such a hardening process.
No doubt one great cause for the in
creased longevity of the race in our land,
is because of the warmer houses in win
ter. My children have slept in well
warmed rooms all their lives, and are
never under the doctor's care; often fox
a half dozen years at a time never have
to consult one, an uncommon thing
among village children of my acquaint
ance. Depend upon it there is a fallacy
In this theorg of toughening children,
and harden"? their constitutions by ex
posure to cold. Dr. William Hall says
he "would as soon think of improving a
new hat by banking ' it around." The
only way to harden the constitution is
by taking good care of it.
VVoll-warmed sleeping rooms in win
ter are a blessing, indeed, and a stove in
an upper hall cau often secure this. But
the rooms should also ue weU aired Borne
