Something About the Chinese Language.
Chinese is a queer language. All its
words are only one syllable long. But the
Sounds in the Chinese language are not
very many, some 465 at most, and their
written language contains about 8,000
pictures, each representing a thing or idea.
And these pictures must be committed to
Qigmory. This is hard work, and noteven
the wisest Chinese professor can learn
them all. But now comes a difficulty.
Fqr, of course, where there are so many
words and so few sor.nds, many different
words have to be called by the same
sound. How then are they to tell, when
«vferal different tilings have exactly the
same name, which of them is meant?
We have such words. For instance,
there is Bill, tbe name of a boy; and bill,
tlj> beak of a bird; there is bill, an old
weapon, and bill, a piece of money; there
is bill, an article over which legislatures
debate, and bill, a claim for a payment of
money; besides bills of exchange, bills of
lading, and so forth. But Chinese is full
of such morris of a single syllable, yen, for
instance, which, like bill, means many
very different things. So they choose a
number of little pictures, and agree that
these shall l»e used as “keys.” Each “key”
means that the sign or signs near which it
stood belonged to some large, general set
of things, like the things of the vegetable
mineral, or animal kingdom, forests,
mines; or seas, air, or water, or persons,
like gods or men. It was like the game
called throwing light, in which you guess
the article by narrowing down the field
until certain w hat it is.
But there Chinese writing stopped short,
thousands of years ago. There it is to-day.
There are now 214 of these “keys” and, by
intense application, Chinamen learn to
use their method with surpisingquickness
and success.—St. Nicholas.

It. is no mark of a delicate fine lady ism for
a lady’ to scream or faint or go into hysterics
at some sudden happening. The physical
condition may be such, it is true, as to render
perfect control over the nerves an impossi
bility, but these exhibitions could be pre

may alsoftiave much to do with the matter,
but those persons who know themselves to be

gain control of it, instead of nursing it into
greater weakness by indulgence. I remem

was given to falling into agonizing hysterics
at the slightest provocation, that she was
cured by being left to lie upon the floor
where she had thrown herself, and allowed to

Heroic treatment, it is true, is not always
feasible, but in this case it was effectual.
I do not want it to be understood as hav

they are often terrible sufferers, and their
situation is the result of an overstrained

der. There is not the slightest danger pf soil
ing your < lothes or of encountering the
slightest disagreeable odor. On arriving ut
the foot of the stairs a fine display of fruits
and vegetables was the first thing to greet
our eyes. These products were from Genne-
villiers, and were grown in gardens that are
watered by the sowers. We got into a
wagon, in which were seats for twenty per
sons. Off we went, shoved along by solid
looking fellows, all neatly dressed. Aliove
us was a mass of tubes and pipes. They are
the water pipes, the two largest containing
our drinking water from the Vaune and
the water of the Ourcq, whith is used for
washing the streets ami sidewalks. Then
there are the pneumatic tubes, in which we
can hear the rattle of the dis|>at<*h I Mixes as
they shoot along.
“Suddenly we heard the passengers In the
wagon ahead of us uttering cries of admira
tion. We were under the Rue de Rivoli, but
soon we reached the crossing of the Rue du
Pont Neu f. This tunnel is lighted from end
to end with garlands of colored lamps. The
effect is fairylike. The same effect fa repro
duced under the Rue du Louvre, the Rue de
Richelieu and the Place des Pyrainides, where
precisely under the statue of Joan of A'rc ap
pear in luminous glass the arms of the city of
Paris. We passed along, still following the
Rue de Ilivoli, where each house has its num
ber in the sewer, just as in the street, until we
reached tho Plnve I m . (’<>><« tor« it*. There the
electric lights, crossing their fires with the re
flections of the Venetian lamps, turti the
square into a sort of ball room. Nothing is
wanting, not even the music. Wo all got out
of the wagons to embark in large boats fur
nished with cushioned neats. The itmfcic was
in the first boat, which was decorated with
flags and lunqis. The boats were started.
We followed the entire route of the Rue
Royale by the light of fifty dazzling electrio
“After a quarter of an hour in this boat we
landed at the foot of a staircase, which we
mounted,, and in three minutes we were
above ground at I ji Madeleine. It is much
colder in the street« than it was in the sew
ers, where the temperature, sum-mor and
winter, is always unifdrmly pleasant."—New
Decline In the Onti'k'li Feather Trade.
The ostrich feather trade in Tripoli de
clined so rapidly last year as to eventually
end In a complete collapse, and the consu-
quenoes it entailed proved disastrous to
all connected with tne business and more
or less prejudicially affected other branches
of trade. Asa result, trade with the In
terior of Africa Is said to be suspended,
people hesitating to risk their diminished
capital in enterprises to remote parts ot
the continent before some signs of ameli

selves, and aa yet there are none such —
