time running a "p''i''.v-autrur" (periaua
a Binull ferryboat, carrying two musts
and a lee hoard) between Quarantine
Station and the city, and was becoming
very popular with boatmen and others
who were thrown in his way. Fulton &
Livingston owned an exclusive charter
to run steamboats between New York
and Albany, and the monopoly was pay
ing immensely. Two old Jerseymen
then stiir ted an opposition line, but as
they could not run direct between Kew
York and Albany they got around the
ditllculty by going from New Y'ork to
Jersey City, and making that the start
ing point for Albany. They encounter
ed all sorts of difficulties, however, the
monopolists going so far as to willfully
rum their boats down and otherwise
crippling them, and they were threat
ened with bankruptcy.
One of the proprietors was at New
York one day, when he asked old Mr.
Gulon if he knew of a man who was
competent to take hold of their line and
make a success of it 'Yes,' said Uuion,
'I know such a man. His name is Cor
neel Vanderbllt. He'll take your boats
to the mouth of hell if you wanthimto.'
'That's just the man I want,' was the
response, and in a little while the bar
gain was concluded and Cornelius Van
derbilt took charge of the line. The
monopolists tried every possible means
to prevent the lino from doing business
in New Y'ork, and at last put a sheriff
on board with instructions to arrest
Vanderbllt if he should attempt to move
the steamer from the wharf. Vander

had begun to revolve and there was a
good strain on the hawser he up with

Tlio History of Butter.
Butter, which is almost indispensable
nowadays, was almost unknown to the
ancient Herodotus is the earliest
writer to mention it The Spartans
used butler, but as an ointment, and
Plutarch tells how the wife of Deiotor
ous once received a visit from a Spartan
lady whose presence was intolerable
because she was smeared with butter.
The Greeks learned of butter from the
Scythians, and the Germans showed the
Romans how it was made. The llomans,
however, did not use it for food, but for
anointing their bodies. Louisville
A New York dry-goods merchant
says that frequently some of the sub
ordinate employes receive larger re
muneration than the men in whose
hands rests the main responsibility for
running a business. The men who
usually make the most money in the
ve.y largo firms are not the superin
tendent and his chief assistants, but the
buyers of departments.

BLAUTIES OP ANDALUSIA.
Women Noted for Their Small Feet and
As regards her stature and mold, the
Andalusian girl is almost invariably a
Stite brunette, and although not all are
ump, and many are too stout, the ma
jority have exquisitely symmetrical
tapering limbs, well-developed busts
(fiat-chested women are almost unknown
in Spain), and tho most dainty and re
fined hands and feet Regarding these
feet Gautier makes the most astounding
assertion that without any poetic exag
geration it would be easy here in Seville
to find women whoso feet an infant
might hold in its hands. A French girl
of seven or eight could not wear the
shoes of an Andalusian of twenty." 1
am glad to attest that it the feet of
Sevillian women really wore so mon
strously small fifty years ago, they are
so no longer. It is so discouraging to
see a man like (Jautier fall into the vul
gar error of fancying that, because a
small foot is a thing of beauty, there
fore the smaller the foot the more beau
tiful it must be. Heauty of feet, hands
and wai.sts is a matter of proportion,
not of absolute size, and too small
feet bands and waists are not beautiful,
but ugly. We might as well arguo that
since a mn's foot ought to be larger
than a woman's, therefore the larger bis
foot tho more he has of manly beauty.
If Andalusian women really had feet so
small that a baby might hold them in
its hands, they would not bo able to walk
at all, or, at least not gracefully. Hut
it is precisely their graceful gait and
carriage for which they are most famed
and admired. All Spanish womed are
graceful as compared with tho women
of other nations, but among them all th)
Andalusians are pre-eminent in the poo
try of motion, and this is probably the
reason that although regular facia
beauty is, perhaps, commoner in Madrid
than in Seville, I found that you can not
pay a greater compliment to a girl in
Northern Spain than by asking her if
she is an Andalusian. It would be use-
less to seek among land anim lis for a
gait comparable to that of the women of
Seville, Cadiz, Malaga and Granada; and
when you compare it to the motion of a
swan on the water, a fish in the water,
a bid in the air, it is the birds and the
fishes that must feel complimented.
LAZY AND CUNNING.
How an EugllK.li 4iirl Wounded Hemelf to
M. C , aged seventeen, a plump,
healthy-looking country girl, in service
in a minister's family, was brought to
me by her mistress about the end of
March last complaining of severe prick
ing pains on the dorsal surface of the
left hand. Her mistress informed me
that the girl was not at all fond of work,
and that she had a deal of trouble to get
her to do it; that since the hand had
been bad she would do nothing but sit
down and cry. On examination of the
band I found it puffy and inflamed, and
on asking if she felt the pricking sensa
tion at any particular point was re
ferred to a spot in the center of the
hand. On touching this with my finger
I distinctly felt something sharp and
pointed. 1 used a pair of dressing
forceps and extracted a full-sized
sewing-needle, which had been pushed
obliquely into the flesh until the
whole of it was out of sight. She could
give no account of how it got there.
Three evenings afterward she was again
brought in, and from the same place
and in tLe same manner I extracted an
other needle. About a week after she
came again, and this time I withdrew a
pin (which had been pushed in until the
head was covered) from the same place.
A few days after she came again, with
her hand (of course previously inflamed
from her treatment of it) very a'dema
tous and of a bright-blue color, which I
found she had produced by a liberal use
o! the blue-bag and vinegar. I felt so
disgusted with her that I advised her
mistress to get rid of her at once, which
was done, and the girl returned to the
country. It seems hardly credible that
a person of her ago could be so cunning,
and would inflict so much pain upon her
self to avoid work. London Lancet

Queer Casea of Nightmare Developed la
a WttHhlngton llontelry.
"Among the many queer experiences
gained in a hotel," said the clork of an
uptown hostolry, "are those connected
with guests who are subject to night
mare, which is more common than many
people supfwse. It is not uncommon
tor a night in a large hotel to develop
several cases of this kind. In the still
ness of the early morning hours heavy
groans or a shriek may be heard sound
ing along the corridor. The hall-boy
wakes up, rubs his eyes and awaits to
see what is coming, and if he is a new
one at the business half expects that a
murder is being committed.
"We had a case not lonjr ago of a gen
tleman here who, during the middle of
the night, began pounding on his door,
yelling at the same time: 'Lot me outl
Let me out! Help! Help!' The hall
boy rushed down to the desk, and, with
the night clerk and the porter, hurried
back to tho room whence came the
sounds of distress. All was quiet. They
waited awhile, then knocked. The sub
ject of the nightmare wamo to the door
feeling very much crestfallen. Ho ex
plained that ho had eaten a too liberal
supply of deviled crabs during the
previous evening and that he had
dreamed that he was locked in one of
tho immense money vaults of the Treas
ury, which he hud seen during his visit
to the city. His own cries for help had
caused him to wake. Sueh cases, mere
or less exciting, are of almost nightly
occurrence in a largo hotel, and are
usually greater when the social season
is at its height. The guests who got in
toxicated are not included in this class
of noise-makers. They form a separate
study alone, and make the night lively
very often." Washington Post
