So, you see, when they tell you that some worthless or dangerous •/ashing-powder is "the same — " or "as good as" Pearline, that s because it pays a larger profit. Too large, altogether, if clerks can be hired on purpose to make people take°things they don't want and know nothing of, instead of a tried and proved article like Pearline.

H. PORTER •BE?" 1 LINCOLN PARDONED HIM. I»in rroAldcnt Took the Klik on the Side of Mercy. ' Hon. II. L. Dawes. in some recollec- jtioDS of Lincoln and Stanton, relates ton experience of his own in dealing with these two men, who, "so wholly »nljkr in ways of work and thought, iraiked together arm in arm, each sus- taSiH-d in the load he carried by the '»rm he leaned on, and helped on his Uray by the caution and counsel of him Mrbo walked by his side." A quarter- Boaster of a Massachusetts regiment fcad been caught gambling with government money, and had been sen- (fenced to five years' imprisonment in the Albany penitentiary. Says Mr. "I had received a petition to the president, signed'by many leading citi- •tns of tho neighborhood of 'the offender's home, indorsed and certified to •fcy ibe physician of the penitentiary, • HD<] also by a loading physician of ray . lOmrn town, tasking for his pardon on "the ground of failing health, and repre- •entiag him to be in a sad condition of ; ieelino, with every prospect of a jjxwjdy death unless he were released. •i "I took this petition to Mr. Lincoln, •'. -wbos after carefully reading it, turned to mre and said : " 'Do you believe that statement?' * " 'Certainly I do, Mr, President, or I (fcould not have brought it to you.' •• 'Please say so here on tho back of it, tinder these doctors.' "I did as requested,- adding: 'And be. ewnw T believe it to be true I join in • thin petition.' • ; "As I signed my name Mr. Lincoln .remarked, 'We can't permit the man to dJe in prison after that statement,' and immediately wrote under Hull: ..'J " 'Let this man be discharged. A. L.' ;•.' "He handed the paper back to me, '.;sad told me to take it to the war office • W»d give it to Mr. Stanton. He saw at something in my countenance i led him to think that I had al• encountered some rough weather K'.'I» that quarter, and had little relish §»,'Jbr more. Mr. Lincoln took back the !;'j»por, and smiling, remarked that ho £t»Mjroing over there pretty soon, and |.«ould take It himself. "The next day, on going to the I was met by two Michigan s with tho inquiry: •havn you been doing at the l&WIrit* House? We wentthere to get a p Michigan soldier pardoned who beou sentenced to death for deser- but we couldn't do anything with president He told tt« that yon there reatardftT. and irot him to pardon a man out of the penitentiary, and when he took the paper to Mr. Stanton he wouldn't discharge Him. " ' "He told me," said the president, "that it was a sham, and that Dawos had got me to pardon the biggest rascal in the army, and that I had made gambling with the funds perfectly safe. I couldn't get him to let the roan off. The truth is, I have been doing so much of this thing lately that I have lost all influence with this administration, and have got to stop. "I went immediately to the White House, with my hair on end, but was greeted by tho president in the mildest manner. I inquired if the pardon hud gone out. He replied thut it had not, nnd then recounted, in his quaint way, the scene in the war office. "j. said to him that I could not afford t<- 1-ave this matter rest on any uncertainty. 'Retain this pardon, send a message to Albany, and make cr-rtain the truth or falsity of this statement— at my expense, if we have been imposed upon.' Mr. Lincoln's reply was: " 'J' think, if yon believe, it, I will. At any rate, I will take the risk on tho side of mercy.' "So the pardon went out. And yet tho sequel proved that Mr. Stunton was the nearest right of the^three; for, on my return to Massachusetts, almost, tho first man who greeted mo in the street was the same 'dying' quartermaster, apparently as hale and robust as the best of the people around him.',' —Atlantic Monthly.

[Special ChluiiKo Lotter.l "I wonder who that particularly fine looking woman is who is coming jn here?" asked one gentleman of anoth-j or as they sat chatting at their club. "That," said the gentleman of whom the question was asked, -"is the aristocratic washerwoman of the new dispensation." "What do you mean?" said the first speaker, leaning forward and regarding interestedly the dignified, graceful, fashiomibly-drussGd woman who had halted to greet an acquaintance. "Only this," said the gentleman, smiling 1 , "that Mrs. .Tudd is conducting, in a way so unprecedented as to make the undertaking unique, a high- class laundry. While, on account of these trying times, music teachers, Delsarte instructors, and in fact all xvomen who make their living- by uny- I thing which inay bo classed a luxury, j which can, when, occasion requires, be dispensed with, are finding the strug- gla lor existence unprecedentedly difficult, this woman is making an income which many a first-class business man Is unable to command. She is'one of the first to demonstrate what a wellborn, well-bred, well-informed-woman can do in tills line, and although / presume that in time she will have imitators I do not think they will very soon bo a numerous company, for but few women are possessed of her acquirements, are as independent as she is. She has the contract for keeping the table linen of our club in order, and laughingly declares herself a 'washerwoman;' yet .one meets her at the opera and also at some handsome functions. So, you see, in these last days of the old century when women vote and are elected to office, one meets his laundress in the drawing-room as his social e.qual." The story of "the aristocratic washerwoman of the now dispensation," as this gentleman styled Mrs. Isabel Judd, is an interesting one, although in many respects it is not exceptional. Liko her, many women have been reared in luxury and lived for years with every wish gratified to suddenly find themselves without the means of subsistence. When misfortune comes they, as did Mrs, J udrt, usually try to make such accomplishments as they stand possessed of bring them some pecuniary return. They do not, however, as did this woman, even after much bitter experience, piit aside all false standards and proceed to dignify a common-place, lucrative occupation b3' bringing to it all that makes any one thing more desirable than another. It was not until she had eked out a precarious living by giving instruction in physical training and other things, and even had tried a clerkship, which she obtained by assuming that although she had never boon behind counter her long experience as a pu chaser had given her :i knowledge < what shoppers demand, only to fin herself unequal to the work, that sh quite accidentally determined to ur> dertake the laundry work of wliich sh has made a pronounced success. In speaking of it she says that when after a life of opulence, she was con fronted with the necessity of making living for herself and daughter sh could not have, at first, been induce to consider work of this kind. Afte years of contact with the world as slble for her to teach those in her employ how to accomplish their work witb the least possible expenditure of strength. In this way she made it possible for her helpers to do the work with no more physical labor than IB required to sew in a factory, while both the pay and the surroundings are much better. Mrs. Judd makes a point of having the rooms in which her work is done neat, attractive and thoroughly comfortable. A place is provided where the women and girls can get themselves a warm lunch, and there is no work clone after half-yast five o'clock. Tho result of all this is that exceptionally intelligent and refined women are glad to enter Mrs. Judd's employ. Thoy arc neatly and tastefully dressed while doinff their work; in fact, Mrs. Judd insists that they shall be so dressed. There is, indeed, no reason why they should not, as everything is so arranged that there is none of the soil and slop which has Jong been supposed to be a, nccesdury accompaniment of work of this kind. Mrs. Judd is now working on a design for a costume especially suited to the needs of her employes during their hours of work, aud soon the women in the "Isabella laundry"—only women are employed—will be uniformly dressed in tasteful costumes oi blue and white. The forewoman who takes entire charge when Mrs. Judd is attending to outside business is a, refined young American woman who, until she identified herself with this business, was a professional nurse. She says that nothing would induce her to exchange her present for her former occupation, as homesteaded by white men, after the Indians had tilled the soil for years, The women are dressed nentlv—I was told that many own sewing machines—and 'they show a degree of taste in the fashioning of their garments. Although a Seininole of cither sex has little love for a camera, Mrs. Dodge was able to secure nearly a dozen fine negatives, chiefly of Indian women. THE MILLIONAIRES^CLUB.

In conspicuous places about the recently opened Millionaires' club may be found fastened to the wall handsome gold frames studded with ten- carat diamonds.

"No millionaire is permitted under any circumstances to float among his fellow members any issue of bunko bonds exceeding five million dollars in amount "Under no circumstances will nny conversation about art, literature or science be permitted on the premises.

Snake Nat of llrltliti One of the most wonderful produc- | tions of the vegetable kingdom is the | "snake nut" of British Guiana. It is found growinc 1 in preat confusion in that country and specimens of it can occasionally be purchased through the regular curiosity dealers of our larfre cities. Up to within the past dozen . years this vegetable oddity was scarce- . ly known to the botanists of thU eoun- , try and Europe. These wonderful^ nuts vary In size, some being as large" as a big apple, others about the size of an average walnut. The.shapo of the (hell or outside portion of the nut p'ves no hint of what the karnel is like, for It is the form of that part of the nut which gives it its name. If the nut be cracked and the meat carefully removed, It will be found to bo a miniature boa constrictor in every detail, the mimic creature appearing to bo coiled up and asleep.

ISABEL JL-DD. dowerlcss widow she learned to look at life from many points of view and to BOB that any work well done may be made a credit to tho doer. Ono clay the clothing which she had sent to tho laundry, an 1 :! which was never very satisfactorily done, was returned in a worse condition than usual. She was constantly hearing complaints among 1 her pupils in regard to work of this kind, nnd suddenly it dawned upon her that hero was a field white for tho harvest, and she determined to enter it auft sec what she could gather. She began at first in a small way with the work of such friends as were not too disgusted with her undertaking work of this sort to patronize her. From tho first she made a specialty of table linen of the finer kind, which it is so difficult to got well laundered, and in this way secured her most valuable putromige. Jt wns Renan who Bald that the day WUH not far distant when Invention would make it possible to do the work of the world with so little labor that those who toil would have leisure for both recreation and self-improvement, and thus machinery would prove a. sper cial blessing to those to whom at first It seemed u, menace. Mrs. Judd, believing that the fulfillment of this prophecy oould be realized here and now In the. line of work she had undertaken, proceeded .as rapidly as possible to avail herself of all the machinery whioh could be successfully used, •More than thto, In her »tudy for t**chlng physical training ih« bad •rained * knowledsr* which a»dt it pofr she not only finds it more profitable but less arduous and in every way pleasantcr. It is her ambition, after a time, to haven, laundry of her own. In this she is encouraged by Mrs. Judd, who makes the best interest of her help her care and its so enthusiastic a believer in this busine.ss as one whioh can be successfully undertaken by women of reflnemen' and intelligence that she is always ready to make plain the way to any such as are disposed to follow her example. That a correct standard of taste is as valuable in laundry work ns in other thiugs in life the success of Mrs. J"udd's undertaking clearly proves. She aims to do as nearly perfect work as it is possible to accomplish, and to this end gives it the most careful and painstaking attention. 'Although in filling her contracts with the various Chicago clubs she washes and delivers napkins daily by the thousand and tablecloths by the score nothing is done after the job lot fashion. She discusses the work with her helpers, and each one is made to feel both responsibility for her share of it and pride in doing It well. Being possessed of the spirit of Abou Ben Adhem. famed for his love for his fellow men, Mrs. Judd teaches the girls in her employ many things that broaden and deepen their lives. Euskin says that there is a best way of doing a thing which Is not accidental but is eternally right.. Mrs. Judd is ever seeking this right way and is therefore in the line of progress. Among other'things she has rented a small flat and furnished it in a tasteful way for a home for those of her helpers who have no homes of their own. Her own home is dainty and elegant io all its appointments. More than this the loading periodicals and the most talked-of books are always to be found on her library table, and, better still, she knows what is in them. ASTOINETTK VAN HoESBN. THE SEMINOLES.

In late years they are pushing deeper Into the glades, as the footsteps of the white man encroach upon their domain. They live upon game, fruits and the products of their agriculture, though many wants must bo supplied at the trading-posts or stores in the settlements, with money or through barter. For many years the trade it alliga- *>r skins and the plumage of birds has >een a great source of revenue to them, >ut the alligators are almost exterminated, and the bird laws are now so rttictly enforced that the trader no onger dares to buy their .plume* and wlngi, at leasi la paying quantity.

From the earliest times Mohammedan historians, except when in subjection, in describing the death of a Christian, do not say "He died" or "He was killed," bat "He went to Jahanna." They do not say of a Christian that he was drowned, but they say: "The dog wont through tho water to fire." Not that these elegant phrases are confined to Christians. It is sufficient for a man to bo not a Mohammedan to entitle him to "pursue the road to the realms of perdition," or to have his head "struck -from his filthy body, so that the world may be gladdened by being cleansed from his polluting existence." When the army of Islam (roes to war with the Sikhs, it is called "Extermination of the hellish good-for-nothing Guru." The faithful, when they die, drink the sharab (which they ought not to do), or sherbet o£ martyrdom; sometimes thev pluck fruit from the fig tree of immortality. On the contrary, their enemies (may their mouths bo crammed with mud!) are sent in swarms to hell, and there purified of their foul existenco.
