M’MINNYILLE NATIONAL ADULTERATION OF TKA. “How do they adulterate tea in the pro iuciug countries P “We have uo accurate knowledge upon which to base an intelligent reply. The al eged methods are various, but sufficiently veil authenticated to repeat.” “Do they not pack a mixture of good an«l >ad teas in the same chest P “Wide variations in the quality of leaves found iu the same ‘chest’ or ‘chop’ are often »bservetl This may be the result either of iccident or design. It may and doubtless Iocs occur by plucking the earlier leaves vith those that are matured, neglecting to xsort properly tbe different qualities—per ups intending to increase the bulk at tbe ■xpense of the quality." “How much tea is confiscatedP * “During my service ouly one instance oi ■onflscatiou has occurred, which consisted of . few package« damaged by salt water and milt for use.” “Why do you not draw samples yourselfP “In exceptional cases I do. This duty, ¡owever, is assigned to the ‘sampler* specifi •ally selected for the purpose.” “How much tea is rejected each yearP “During my term of service—about three years—tbe total rejections are about 28,000 packages, or say about 1,250,000 pounds. About half of these were subsequently ad milted upon re-examination by arbitration committees, as provided by ‘the act.’" “Do you swallow the tea in the process o' examination P “Very rarely, and then in very small quan title«." “How do you know that importers do not adulterate after their consignment has been released by you or the customs officials P “Ofucially we have no knowledge. Pre sumably, however, the importer sells his im- ¡»ortations in the original packages; and adulterations or admixtures which do or may occur would be traceable, if at all, to the re tailer, or one who breaks up the original package.” “What do you do with the samplesP “After the examination of tbe samples is completed they are held subject to tbe order of the importers, and if not called for within a reasonable period are turned over to tbe custody of the collector, an«i are sold at pub lic auction for the benefit of tbe government.

There is nothing to correspond with th* feelings experienced by a soldier under fire. Take, for instance, the average man, tho man who is neither very brave nor a great coward. In all his life he could scarcely have had any seiisatioii to com|>are with that of hearing tho ping of th* first bullet of an approaching fight There is a spiteful sound as the ball sings by the ear, or a spitting sound as it cuts a twig above the soldier s head. Tiieu there is a disagrwable searching sound as the shell comes in spirals, as if to twist itself into bis vitals. No man know until he bus once been under tire whether be can dejiend upon himself or not. With the majority it at once becomes a struggle be tween pride, will, a natural desire to stand up and be a man, and a natural temptatio. to flinch. There is a wonderful readjustment of the standing of officers and men in a command after the first fight. A number who havi been regarded the best men lose their high places ill a twinkling, anil hero and there some one of whom not ing was expecte-i steps right up to the front. Home men who will face any amount'd musketry tiriug can’t stand the sound of a shell; and vice vei-sa. It is a mistake to sup pose that a soldier gets used to ‘ ‘fire'’ by being exposed in a number of battles. With each battle he becomes more timid. Yet veterans are more to be depended upon tliun raw troo,«. This is partly be cause they are better disciplined, [lartly lie cause they have gone through similar scenes, and [>artly because they are more reliant on each other and their officers. It is true, men will in a measure get us«, to fire by being long ex|xme<l to it, as a V icksburg.

In other words, they became in i measure accustomed to Mie bomlm. Bravery, as it is usually understood, is largely dependent upon physical conditions, md is supposed by some physicians to come from the action of the heart. It is said el Napoleon I that under the most profound ex citement, on the eve of battle, his pulse never run above some forty to fifty beats to th. minute, whereas the average pulse of adult, is about seventy. Whether bravery is the result of physical condition or no, it is certain that it is much ■usier for some mon to be brave than others, iml many hold that all men are cowards at icart. At any rate Frederick the Great onci -aid that a mail who has never felt feur lu» never snuffed a candle with bis fingers. Character of the Cowboy. There is no eight hour law in cowboy land luring round up time we often count our »Ives lucky if we get off with much less than sixteen hours; but the work is done in the addle, and the men are spurred on all the ¡me by the desire to outdo one another in tats of daring and skillful horsemanship, ¡'here is very little quarreling or fighting; nd though the fun often takes the form of •ather rough horse ¡»lay, yet the practice of urrying dangerous weapons makes cowboys how far more rough courtesy to each other nd far less rudeness to strangers than is the use among, for instance, eastern miners, or .’on lumbermen. When a quarrel may very robably result fatally, a man thinks twice of ore going into it: warlike people or classes 11 ways treat one another with a certain mount of consideration and politeness. The moral tone of a cow camp, indeed, is ather hig\ than otherwise. Meann««s. •owardice and dishonesty are not tolerated. There is a high regard for truthfulness and ¿eoping one’s word, intense contempt for any ;ind of hypocrisy, and a hearty dislike «or a man who shirks his work. Many >f the men gamble and drink, but nany do neither; and the conversation s not worse than in most bodies composed of nale human beings. A cowboy will not sub nit tamely to an insult, and is very ready to ivenge his own wrongs; nor has he an over wrought fear of shedding blood. Ho pos sesses, in fact, few of the emasculated, milk -md water moralities admired by the pseudo philanthropists; but he does ¡«»ssess to a very high degree, the stern, manly qualities that are so valuable to a nation. —Theodore Rooaevelt in The Century. A Plea for «College Athletic«. Professor Richards make« a new plea for col lege athletics. He argue« that two essentially new forces are at work in these days, des tined to sap the physical strength out of young men, and thus emasculating charac ter. These influences are concentration of ¡xjpulation in cities and the increased de mands made by knowledge on brains and nerves. To show how population is concen trating he gives the following figures: In Yale in 1857, of every 100 students, 21 1-5 came from cities of 30,000 inhabitants or over. In 1871, of every 100 students, 44 came from such cities. In 1887, 55 out of every 100. This is a remarkable showing. But the proportion in Hbeffleld Scientific school has risen still more rapidly. He main tains that the system of athletics in colleges and elsewhere hel|M to counteract the disin tegrating forces of city life, to strengthen the young men against ill health, against the forces of low living, and keep them out of crimes against self and society. It is well known that l»fwe habits are associated with local physical disorders, and a course of physical culture invariably is responded to by moral gain. It is the one most important lesson in morals our age has to» learn.—Globe- Democrat The Change In Cigars. “What makes tbe style in cigars?” a cigar dealer was asked. “Now, I hardly know how to answer you,” was the reply, “for you are asking me almost to»» much.

From these three or four distinct patterns are made thousands of fancy style« and still there are but three varieties of tobacco and but three prime grades of each variety.
