The waves were shining with the golden dints That sunbeams make, when on foam crests each glints In showered gold: And wide unrolled The carpet, flower decked, by nature spread. And silver arrows held with azure thread Glanced o’er the sea: But all was gray and cold, fair love was dead. And spring a frozen waste to you and me. —Ruth Ramay in New Orleans Times-Democrat. Girls and the Violin. The world will hear something of woman in art before the Twentieth century comes in. I have been listening to a singular con cert, improvised by the damsels who car ried off the prizes for violin playing this au tumn at the Conservatoire. There were eight of them. The flower of the flock wm a chit of fifteen. Paganini never bad a more accoin polished disciple. She looks a mere gamin. All of them acquitted themselves brilliantly. Is it not curious that girls wore so long in finding out how well the violin suits them? If they have talent and good figures, they are, as violinists, simply irresistible. The outline of the bust, when the fiddle is against the shoulder, is given its fullest value; the forearm emerges from a nest of lace, the head gracefully bends down towards the instrument, and, if the frock is not very long, the feet, which of course are in neat shoes and stockings, uro well in view. The drawbacks are that the violin wants an accompaniment and that girlish beauty is fleeting. Very ripe beauty does not go so well with the instrument. But skill and soul in the playing will make amends.—English Journalist. Exactness In Commercial Statistics. INDIANS’ MEDICINAL LORE. Space writing makes uewspajier work a vast gamble; there is always the alluriDg vision of a “big story” to-morrow, which justifies the extravagant expenditure of today. There is nothiug more calculated to demoralize a man thuu a constantly varying income. It is all very well for moralists to claim that the worker should calculate upon the miuimum, it Is uot in human nature to do so. The cases where a space worker man ages to save any money are very rare, while the salaried man, whose weekly pay may not be so large as the average of the space worker, in nine cases out of ten has a snug t>ank ac count. Besides demoralizing the men, the space system directly injures the paj»ers them selves. A salaried man has very little tempta tion to enlarge upon the facts, his effort is not to make a long story in order to lengthen his string, but only to make a g<xxl one, that he may strengthen his hold upon the paper. The salaried man is rarely a “fakir,” the space worker has every temptation to be. Of the padded stories and sloppy writing which the space system encourages, there is no need to speak; we have to suffer more and more from it every day. The vast injustice of the space system is that it makes no distinction as to quality, but only regañís quantity. One result is that every live newspaper has each duy pre- Ifared as much again copy as can bo used, and in every office one or more men ave em ployed for the sole purpose of destroying the labor of other men. For obvious reasons it is almost impossible for a man in tho office to understand thoroughly every 6tory which passes under his blue pencil, and as a uutural result “ copy chopping ” is rarely done very judiciously. Again, there is very little in ducement for a man to make a story good, unless at the same time he can make it long. A column ¡3 a column whether it be brilliant or dull. If, as many editors claim, it is impractica ble to do away with the space system, signa ture could be brought in with good effect to modify it and lessen its injustice. If the copy reader was empowered to attach the signature of the writer to a meritorious article, it would furnish an inducement for better writing and more accurate work. It would enable a conscientious man to build up u reputation for himself outside of the paper on which ho is employed. It would Ite, at least, a recognition of good work. There aro very few men who would be willing to see their signatures [appended to statements which they know to be false or to writing which they know to be sloppy. The benefit would be mutual to the paper and the writer. —The Journalist.

Herb, by Which They Cure Formidable DUease» iu Mexico. Without doubt men of a money making turn might, with perseverance, acquire from the Indians knowledge of the mysterious herbs with which they cure, radically, some of those formula! le diseases which buffi© the greatest physicians of the world. From Chiajtas and Tabasco up to Sonora and Chi huahua, the Indians make good use of the herbs of the field and forest. The Indians who live around the little hill called the Fenol, near this city, can cure intermittent fevers much more eusily than our physicians, and, iu the state of Queretaro, the Indians have a remedy, known only to themselves, and the secret of which they most jealously guard, which cures the worst forms of blood diseases, as many foreigners here can testify. Bo cunning are these Indians that they employ, as 1 am told, a medicine which has the property of puralyzing temporarily the sense of taste, and thus their ¡tatients can get no clew to the nature of the herbs they are taking. Malaria yields quickly to the poworful remedies of the Indians, and these same rude practitioners will cure bad cases of typhus fever. In the treatment of the smallpox tho Indians are very successful, placing their patients in dark rooms, but ¡lermitting currents of air to be continually ¡Missing over the body of the patient, while some herbal remedy is continually adminis tered. That the Indians of the country towns and of the little hamlets up in ths Sierras are healthy is plainly to bo seen. They live often to an incredible age, and say themselves that the white man is a sickly fellow who has gray hair while their own is still coal black. A recent patient of tho Queretaro Indians said the remedy administered to him by the Indians Beemed to take hold of him in every part of his body, and that for twenty days he was kept .covered up and sweating pro fusely. It seemed to him that they were getting his blood “washed out” and every organ of his body cleansed. At. the end of the prescribed time he was told that he was cured, and so found himself beyond any doubt. Many of the herbs used by the In dians are declared by them to be of great value owing to their scarcity, and it is cer tain that they cherish them and will not part with them for a song. Even educated physicians here employ remedies not known in the United States. The homoeopaths use the poison of certain venomous snakes and the active principle of poisonous native plants. It is possible that science will yet make good use of the weed with which In dian poisoners take away tho wits of their enemies. A little of this powder in your roup, and away goes your intellect and rea son. On the principle that “like cures like” it may be that in this baleful weed there is u remedy for some forms of insanity, for we know very well that the treatment of brain trouble is in its infancy, so to say.—Mexico Cor. Boston Herald. Temptations of the Teller. The big banks down town with which ex tensive brokers and merchants deal do an enormous amount of business every day. A great deal of this business is by checks and drafts and the balances to be paid to settle the debits and credits are fixed every morning at the clearing house. But with all the checks and drafts, the paying tellers in these banks handle fortunes in cash every day that they are at their windows attending to business. Aside from the amounts which they pay out between 10 and 3 o’clock, there is always a large cash fund held in reserve for contin gencies that may arise suddenly and unex pectedly. It is nothing extraordinary for a ¡laying teller to handle from $1,000,000 to $2,(XX),(XX) of cash in a day. When the doors of the bank closed the paying teller counts his cash to see that the amount on hand corresponds with the amount called for by the books. He puts his cash balance in the vault and quits work until next morning. From the time he leaves the bank until the hour for him to reappear no one of the officers of the bunk knows where he is. He may, in fact, stay away a couple of days on the plea of illness, and if, as is usually the case, he has the con fidence of his superiors, his absence arouses no suspicions. Express trains leave for Montreal at 7 and 11:15 every evening. A paying teller can put a million dollars in greenbacks in his pockets, walk out of his bank when the busi ness of the day is over, and be in Montreal before he or the money is missed. Paying tellers are considered well paid when they gets salary of $3,500 a year. They know that their chance of becoming cashier or president is very slim, and that the prob abilities are they will go to the grave paying tellers, or elso be bounced because of old age, or because a change in the officers or board of directors has brought into power some rich and influential man wit)’ a poor rela tive whom he wants to support without cost to himself. Consider for a moment the terrible temptar tions some of these tellers suffer. They see men making money by methods which are neither exactly dishonest nor exactly fair, and that nobody inter feres with them. They also see and feel enough money day after day to make them so independent of work that they could live on the fat of the land while life lasts and not turn a hand.—New York Cor.
