instructions to the naval and revenue

from last year's in three important par
ticulars : 1. Any vessel found sealing
in Behring Sea is to be seized, whether
she has been previously served with a
notice or not. 2. The mere presence of
a vessel in Behring Sea, having on board
a sealing outfit, is cause for seizure. 3.
Persons on board the vessels seized will
be sent as prisoners with the vessel to
suffer the penalty of the law. Under
the British law all persons killing or
aiding or abetting in the killing of fur
seals in the Behring Sea. are punishable
by a fine of $500 and imprisonment at
hard labor for six monthB. Under the
American law they are subject to six
months' imprisonment and a fine of

A Story About How the Rnsslan General
Returned the zar' Inault.
During the Russo-Turkish war, the
day after the passage of the Danube
had been made good, the emperor of
Russia crossed the river to congratulate
and thank bis gallant soldiers. In front
of the long, massive line formed on the
slope below Sistova, awaiting the com
ing of the great white czar, stood Drago
miroff, Yolchine and Skobeleff the
three generals who had been the lead
ers of the successful attempt.
Dragomiroff, the divisional com
mander, the emperor embraced and
gave him the cross of St. George; he
shook hands warmly with Yolchine, the
brigade commander, and gave him, too,
a St. George to add to the decorations
which this cheery little warrior had
been gathering from boyhood in the
Caucasus and Central Asia. Then the
emperor Btrode to where Skobeleff
stood, and men watched the little scene
with interest, for it was notorious that
Skobeleff was in disfavor with bis sov
ereign, and yet of hhu the camps were
ringing with the story of his conduct of
the previous morning.
Would Alexander maintain his um
brage, or would he make it manifest
that it had been displaced by Skobe
IefFs heroism? For at least a minute
the czar hesitated as the two tall, proud,
soldierly men confronted each other.
You could trace in his countenance the
struggle between disapproval and ap-
It waspon over, and the wrong way
for Skobeleff. The emperor frowned,
turned short on his heel and strode ab
ruptly away with-it a'word or a ges
ture of greeting or recognition. A man
of strong prejudices-he was not yet
able to exercise from hiSinind the cal
umnies that had blackeneJkto him the
character of SkobelelT. X
That officer, for his part, flushed
scarlet, then grew deadly paleXnd
seeded to conquer an impulse as he
his tetsth hard and maintained his dis-
ciplinedV immobility. It was a flagrant
insult, in eJie very face of the army,
and a gross njustice, but Skobeleff en
dured it in a froud silence that seemed
to me very granvd, nor did I ever hear
him allude to theNslur.
The time soon oWie to that gallant
and brilliant soldier hen he could af
ford to be magnanimouV As the cam
paign progressed he distinguished him
self again and again, so that his name
became a synonym in the army for
splendid daring as well as forppor-
tune skill.
