In order to emphasize the importance of
the cultivation of the soil and to encourage
bis subjects to follow agricultural pursuits,
the emperor of Cbinu sometimes performs
certain rites at the "emperor's field" and
goes through the form of plowing and other
work of the husbandman. One day recent
ly the emperor set out nt daybreak from
his palace with a numerous and magnifi
cent train of courtiers mid others. Before
breakfast the emperor arrived ut the shrines
of the deity presiding over agriculture, and
his majesty stopped to offer up his thanks
giving and sacrifices. After changing his
dress, the mornlng.rcpast was served, nt the
end of which the emperor proceeded to the
field, at the four corners of whioh wore
erected four pavilions, where tbo seeds of
wheat and other cereals were placed.
In the center were numbers of magnifi
cently attired courtiers, each holding aloft
a many colored flag, while on the side of
the passage were scores of aged and white
haired farmers, each having in bis hand
some agricultural implement. Placing his
left hand on the plow and holding the whip
in bis right hand, the emperor began the
ceremony of the occasion. By prearrange
ment the officers did their allotted share,
some wielding the agricultural implements,
while others scattered seeds out of the
baskets as if sowing, while the emperor
was busied with the plow, which was
btched to a richly caparisoned bullock
draped in yellow and led by two of the em
peror's bodyguards. On the emperor fin
ishing his round at the plow the three
princes were ordered to go through the per
formance, and after them nine hiRb court

An Odd Occupation.
The class of men who" live by waking up
the toilers of Paris during the early morn
lng In time for work have now a prototype
or two in New York. There is un old crip
ple living In William street who gets up at
8 a. m. each day and begins a tour of the
Bowery and its vicinity, knocking at occa
sional shutters and windows to arouse his
customers. lie is a Frenchman himself
and was able to drum up a good trade in
almost no time. Elevated train bands,
watchmen, stevedores and other timed
workers patronize him, and his rates are
cent a day. He has nearly GO customers,
and this novel work is dono in about three
hours. The rest of the time ha presumably
puts in at another occupation.
When be first started, the policemen on
the various beats bo traversed eyed bim
with suspicion, but after he had explained
matters there was no further interference
with bitn. The number of his clients grew
to rapidly that the cripple's wife left her
wasbtub and the pair doubled their rates.
Now many a working girl, who once lived
In daily dread of a line (or lateness at the
shop or factory, rests undisturbed, know
ing that "granny" will not fall with her
knock at the right time. There are regret
table evidences now that the worthy pair's
vocation will be soon done to death. rew
How Two Vires Started.
The feed pipe of a boiler, which was
placed at the back, burst, allowing water
to escape Into the fire. The steam fiener
ftted blew open the furnace door and forced
the flames out into the boiler room. The
doors and windows and the ventilator in
the roof were sot on fi re, but the ever watch
ful automatic sprinklers opened and held
the flames In check until two hydrant
streams could be turned on. A somewhat
similar accident took place In a mill where
havings were blown under the boiler for
fuel. The shaving blower was stopped for
a moment, causing a back draft in the
boiler furnace, which sent flames through
the furnace doors, setting Are to the shav
ings In the boiler room. Here, as before,
the automatic sprinklers promptly opened,
keeping the Are In check until a stream
from a hose could be applied. American

There was a quick interchange of amazed

Biieepsiiead BAY,Aug.80. Domino
proved himself a worthy son of a noble
sire by winning tbo great futurity from
the field of nineteen competitors. He
carried a top weight, too, and was de
layed at the starting post noarly half an
hour. Besides this the track was heavy
andetloky.lt waJu the day fora light
weight but he vanquished all of them,
though one, Galilee, gave him a hard
fight for over a furlong and was only
a head behind at tbe finish. The value
of the stakes Is $05,600, divided as fol
lews: $49,715 to Domino, and (4000 to
bip breeder, $5334 to Galileo; 2500 to
his breeder. The fear of a oyclone de
terred many from going to the track.
Eight thousand would be a liberal esti
mate of the number of peoplo who saw
tbe great event.
Tbe field was the largest over started
in a futurity race. Domino was the
publlo favorite. Tbougb nearly every-
horse In the race was well backed, he
carried tho bulk of tbe publlo money
and as much as seven to five was laid
against bis chances.
Tbe start was a good one. Tarral
took Domino to tbe front at once and
led at tbe first clump of tries, hotly
pressed by Galilee. At tho turn at tbe
head of tbe homestretch Galilee took
tbe lead and Dobbins held bis head on
a line with Domino's saddle girth. It
looked desperate for tbe favorite for a
moment, but tbe greatest Jockey
in Amerlea was on bis bick and he be
gan riding aim with all his power and
skill. In another moment Domino
was wearing the leader down and re
gaining lost ground. Tbe Instant be
poked his nose In frost of Galilee a
bout went up. Tarral drove tbe gal
lant Domino home undera ball of pun
ishment and be won by a nose at tbe
very post. Griffin, by one last dlspalr

Dobbins. The time was 1:12 4-6.

young woman who ought to believe lu the
transmigration of eouls, and who has prob
ably been a thrush, a bobolink or a night
Ingalo in some previous stage ot her exist

calls "the greatest surprlsaof my life." "It
was three years ago," she says, "before I
went to Kurope, and I was traveling way
out west with my mother to keep an en
gagement. The train stopped at a little
prnlrle station, and to rest ourselves my
mother and I got off the oar to walk along
tho platform. As I stepped down I noticed
that my foot rested on a handbill, and
glancing casually at It, I read in bold let

bird warbler, Miss Mabel Stephenson, Just
homo from triumphs abroad.'
"You may fancy my amazement and my
mother's. We hurried down to tho station

Naturally we were curious to see that, and
taking us Into tho waiting room ho pointed

Tho ear tbat Darwin illustrates In his

Imagine. It is my observation that this

to be observed in women, and In many ot
these cases the persistence of the wisdom
teeth Is also a characteristic. I have in
mind two cases of this sort, one of a man,
the other of a woman, both residents ot
one of our leading cities aud among their
social and intellectual forces.
The latter Is a remarkable reversion to aii
earlier type lu ?ur, In teeth, in length of
