When be van appointed bishop of Anton
by Louis XVI, he considered a fine new
coach to be necessary to the proper main
tenance of the dignity of that office.
Accordingly, a ooach was ordered and
delivered, but not paid for. Some time
after, as the newly appointed bishop was
about to enter bis coach be noticed a
strange man standing near who bowed
continually until the coach was driven

until at length Talleyrand, addressing
the stranger, said:
Well, my good man, who are yon!"
"I am yonr coachmaker, my lord," re

A Dramatist with lnflaeaee.
Queen Elizabeth of Bonmania has
written a play which she is pleased to
describe as a tragedy, bnt which is really
a piece of the most wildly and extrava
gantly sensational Vind. .It is entitled
"Aleister Manolly," and it is to be intro
duced at the Vienna Court theatre. The
piece is of tbe old transpontine order,
with ghosts, murders, a wife walled np
abre, and other sensational episodes, and
it is foil of preposterous situations, ab
surdly stilted dialogue and Bombastee
Fnrioso declamation. Queen Eiiiabeth,
when she was recently at Vienna, in
vited the company of the Court theatre
to partake of a sumptuous dejeuner at
the Hotel Imperial, and the champagne
flowed in rivers at the meal. Her maj
esty read the play to her guests, who
applauded it as a matter of coarse, and
then she went to see the emperor, and in
duced him to command that the piece
should be produced at the Hofborg,
where, an a rule, new plays are not
readily accepted. London Truth.

Scientific investigators assert that
in beginning to sleep the senses do
not unitedly foil into slumber, but
drop off one after another. The
sight ceases in consequence of the
protection of the eyelids to receive
impressions first, while all the other
senses preserve their sensibility en
tire. Tbe sense of taste is the next
which loses its susceptibility to im
pression, and then the sense of smell
ing. The heating is next in order,
and last of all comes the sense of
touch. Furthermore, the senses are
brought to sleep with different de
grees of profoundness. The sense of
touch sleeps the most lightly and is
the most easily awakened; the next
easiest is the hearing, the next is
the sight and the taste and smelling
Another remarkable cirenmetance
deserves notice; certain muscles and
parts of the body begin to sleep be
fore others. Sleep commences at
the extremities, beginning with the
feet and legs and creeping toward
the center of nervous action. The
necessity of keeping the feet warm
and perfectly still as a preliminary
of sleep is well known. From these
explanations it will not appear sur
prising that there should be an im
perfect kind of mental action which
produces the phenomena of dream

If the girls were only as bright
when they grow np as in their chad
hood days what a race of brilliant
women there would be. One espe
cially cute youngster has a way of
saying some unusually clever things,
and great hopes for her future are
entertained by her family. She was
quite ill recently, and her mother
tried to impress upon her tbe de
lights of heaven, even being unor
thodox enough to suggest an un
limited number of tricycles in the
blessed abode, as one of these was
the desire of the small girl's heart
and the devoted mother thought to
make heaven more attractive by the
introduction of these rather mun
dane charms, yet the small invalid
did not seem to be enchanted at the
prospect of a speedy demise, even
with a tricycle as a reward of her
At last her mother inquired why
she didn't want to be a lovely fluffy
angel with a tricycle whenever she
wished to ride out through the gold
en streets, and tbe practical small
maiden rather astonished the ex
pounder of heavenly joys by reply
ing, "Well, yon see, mamma, I'm

All the employees of the elevated

about $00,000 in gold com is used.
It has been the custom of the elevated
railroad managers to pay wages in
gold coin for a long while. Mr. Jay

pressed the opinion that gold was
preferable to paper money for this
purpose, because it was neater and
less likely to result in mistakes.

As to the question of the suicidal
tendencies of alwiiitliedrinktii!;, there
is a striking instance in one of Edgar j
Saltus' novuls "air. InoouTs Misad-1

soliloquy during which suicide was j
detoruiined upon was accompanied
by a free muulgence tn the danger
ous beverage. Lennox Leigh is the
young man who takes his own life
as the only seemly end to a charge
of cheating at cards, of which he is
innocent but which he cannot re
fute. The charge is made by Mr vm
dietive enemy. Mr. Incoul. The viv
id portrayal of the condition o', mind
produced by the absinthe is remark
able., "On reaching his room,'- says
the author, "he put his purchases
(morphine ui tended for suicide) on a
table, poured out a glass of absinthe,
lighted a cigarette and threw him
self down on a lounge. For. awhile
his thoughts roamed among the epi
sodes of the day. but gradually they
drifted into less personal currents.
He began to think of the early
legions: of Charon, the god. renounc
ing his immortality; of the Hyper
borean, the fabled people, famous
for their fidelity, who voluntarily
threw themselves into the sea; of
Juno bringing death to Biton and
Cleobis as the highest recompense of
their piety; of Again edee and Tro
phonius praying Apollo for what
ever gift he deemed most advanta
geous, and in answer to the prayer
receiving eternal sleep He remem
bered how Plato had preached to the
happiest people in the world the
blessedness of ceaseless sleep: how
the Buddha, teaching that life was
but a right to suffer, had found for
the recalcitrant no greater menace
than that of an existence renewed
through kalpas of time.
He mixed himself another glass of
absinthe, holding the caraffe high in
the air, watching the thin stream of
water coalesce with the green drug
and turn with it into on opalescent
milk. The soliloquy was renewed:
After what has happened there is
nothing left. 1 might change my
name. I might go to Brazil or Aus
tralia, but with what object! 1
could not get away from myself.
And yet life is pleasant; ill spent as
mine has been, many times have I
found it grateful After all it is not
life that is short: it is youth. When
that goes, as mine seems to have
gone, outside of solitude there is lit
tle charm in anything, and what is
death but isolation the most perfect
and impenetrable that nature has
devised! And whether that isola
tion came to me tonight or decades
hence, what matters it)'
"He poured out more absinthe and
put the bottle down empty. Before
drinking he undid Die package which
he had bought from the chemist
First be took from it a box about
three inches long. It was a tiny syr
inge and with it two little instru
ments. One of these he adjusted in
the projecting tube and with his fin
gar felt carefully the point He
threw off his coat and rolled np his
sleeve. From the phial he filled the
syringe and with the point pricked
the bare arm and sent the liquid
spurting into the flesh. Three times
he did this. He reached for the ab
sinthe and left it untasted. The
lights turned pale and glowed less
vividly, as though veils were being
drawn between him and them. But
still the languor continued, sweeter
even, and more enveloping, till from
sweetness it was almost pain. The
room grew darker, the colors waned.
the lights behind the falling veils
sank thin, fading one by one; a
single spark lingered; it wavered a
moment and vanished into night"

Kentucky Camp Meeting.
A writer claims that camp meet

year vm at Gasper Kiver church.
in Logan county, and became estab
lished during the great Kentucky
revival early in the century. It is
claimed that both Presbyterians and
Methodists participated in the earlier
meetings, through the camp meeting

tinctly a Methodist institutioa
The great revival is one of the
curious things in Kentucky bis
history, and its effects are still visi
ble in other tilings besides camp
meetings, granting these religious
open air gatherings to have had the
origin attributed to them. Some
thing of the spirit of the old camp
meetings yet survives in the "holi

"1 was surprised to loniii- a few
days ago," mud one gentleman to a
companion, "that the grapes we eat
at dessert, especially the white varie
ties, may have been plucked from the
vines a month before. A few days
ago I went to a fruit store near my
home and asked for two pounds of
white grapes, incidentally remarking
that they were for my little boy, who
' 'Why dont you take one of these
".-pound baskets!' asked the dealer.
They ore somewhat cheaper when
bought in such quantities, and be
sides I will put a preservative on the
grapes that while it will not impair
their appearance or taste and is not
in the least injurious to the stomach,
will keep them for two or three
weeks. Taste one of those grapes,'
and he pointed to a big basket of fine
fruit - -
"The grapes were sound and of
fine flavor. Those grapes you have
eaten,' he said, 'have been kept in
stock two months, and I can prob
ably keep them as much longer. I
do not know what the preservative
is composwl of. I got it from a big
firm of chemists down town, and
they guarantee there is nothing in
jurious in it 1 have never tried it
on any kind of fruit except grapes,
but I guess it would prove just as
efficacious on peaches or plums."1

Lord Ailosbury thinks that just
before Charles died his affairs were
prosperous. "1 will have no more
parliaments," he said, "for, God be
praised, my affairs are in so gooj a
posture that 1 have no occasion to
oak for supplies. A king of England
that is not a slave to 500 kings is
great enough." "His heart was set
to live at ease, and that his subjects
might live under their own vine and
fig tree."' "I will hove by me 100,000
guineas in my strongbox," the long
used to say. and Lord Ailesbrtry
heard that "there was found there
at his death about 00, 000. "
Concerning this Burnet says: "He
left behind him about 90,000 guineas,
which he had gathered either out of
the privy puree or out of the money
which was sent him from France, or
by other methods, and which be had
kept so secretly that no person what

"1 can rememlier," said the old

who was not a professional musician
playing the piano or the violin was s

States in the early years of this cen

instrument upon which a man could
