During last year the collections of Internal revcnuo from cigarettes alone amounted to considerably over a million dollara Tho increase of tho consumption of those deadly small articles since the year before is sufficiently startling The added revenue from them for the year ending Juno 30. 1889, was $144,467.63. Let us look now at the number of cigarettes this increase implies. During last year tho boys, young men and a few women and old men consijmed 2,151,615,860 of theso little paper rolls. As far as that is concerned, there are boys not yet grown who sometimes smoke, as many as sixty cigarettes in a day. The plain fact is that while the population of tho country increased perhaps a million and a half lost year, the consumption of cigarettes increased nearly 300,000,000. It ta shown by the internal revenue report. Now as to the effects of constant cigarette smoking. First, as is sufficiently established, it creates*thirst for what has been called "the Indiscriminate and useless consumption of liquors." Next, all cigarettes contain, according to Profes- aor Laflin, five distinct and separate poisons. Three of these poisons are oils one m the paper wrapper, .another in the nicotine of tho tobacco itself, and a third in the flavoring material. The other poieona are saltpeter and opium. Tho cigarette 'smoker draws tlic smolrc Into hia lungs nnil pufTa it out again through hia nostrils. If he were to blow it through a white handkerchief before inhaling it it would stain tho handkcr chief brown. This brown stain is left continually upon his own throat and lungs, and It is n poison, or rather the essence of all the nvo poisons mixed. In time it stains hia complexion, too. The cigar is not so bud as the cigarette because it contains only one poison, nicotine. The reason, however, that the cigarette obtains so fatal a hold upon boys and young men is on account of the opium In it This must have its effect on the brain and nerves. The little burning taper seems to the boy to soothe and quiet him, while it is destroying the very fountains of his life. A youth who has become a confirmed cigarette smoker in time exhibits tho appearance and actions of on opium eater. Insanity and death follow sometimes. THREE BROTHERS. Royalty's New York Rents.

At • miit:ihlv points along the river electrical stations are placed, and when the batteries on the boats are exhausted they can be ro placed at these stations. Thu system works admirably HO far, and ought to be tried in America. What, indeed, is to hinder the adaptation of electric motors of the HRmo kind to canal boats?

Wom<-n—Mf<- Glre« to Woman the fume rn«all>lllt.'el of Rich ---Fulfillment That ft Afford* R*on. Ju5t why tho epithet strong mlmled should l^> u?<Vl as a form of i t-pronch to a woman has always eliulixl my ooiiipruhi.'ttsion. I suppose?, however, it Is !>«-nii<« tho majority of perions consular strong timulfl ami mannish Fynonymom. The implication is as absurd as it is unjust, 0.1 any onu must reccg- 11170 who for a moment will view the subject from tho proper standpoint. My iJoa of a strong minded woman is anything l>ut uncomplimentary, Sho is a woman endowed by thoK<xtswithan unusual amount of common sense, to becin with; her mind is well poised; sho Is keen witttd, mid, best of all, Is invariably It, is this latter characteristic which lifts her above the common herd, and naturally marks her as th« target for their small shot. W1IKX SIIK IS INDEPENDENT. . A strong minded woman has tho convictions of her own opinions; sho is independent of the small souled criticisms of tho narrow minded people about ber; she will not bo hampered by them. If yon will observe you will find it Is invariably the woman who writes who is spoken of as a strong minded creature, as though it were not a blessing to have mind at all, particularly a forcible one. But, says the world, It Is not thu fuel of a woman's writing tlmt wo object to, but tho knowledge that sho gets money for it, thus placing herself in tho rolo of bread winners. Evidently the world does not know that there are women today who havo entered tho field of journalism who are fur above want or the neccs sity of earning their livelihood, but who enter into tho work, body and Roul,,from pure love of it. The money it brings Is not their object; it Is the natural result and tho best evidence of their ability. But, saya tho skeptical world, what possible pleasure could a woman find in writing nil day, unless sho had it to do) Let mo answer on the part of the liter ary enthusiasts, known as strong minded women, tliut there is no pleasure in life equal to It. Of eoui-se, to tho woman whoso field IP In the land of fiction anil the Imagination, tho delight is of tho highest order. Her world is peopled with, the children of her brain, as real and dear to her ns tho .merry, boisterous group which gntliei-f* in the flesh about fl mother's bl'enst. ,, Most Women liaVo been brought up to believe that life should be spent iu luxurious idleness; that for a woman to exercise her dainty fingers except iii fashioning some useless bit of tawdry fancy work or in running tho scales of a musical instrument was something shocking. And women have been content for a long time to accept the decree of so inane a fate; but, happily, at last anew regime has dawned upon us, and although tho world at first looks askanco at tliem there are those among us who feel that life was given, to woman with tho same possibilities of rlph fulfillment that it was to men. Tho women who despise tho hollowness and insincerity of tho EO called society world, who, though possessing tho birthright which gives thorn the entree into tho best, and having talouta and accomplishments which would make them favorites, scorn Its favors amb its shallowness, and dare to bravo Its sneers by devoting their days to improving their minds, their nights to preserving their health and their morals. SNOBBISH ILL BREEDING. Do we ever find the cultured, the broad minded, refined members of society condemning, a woman because of her mental ability? Ah, no. Are they rather not tho parvenus, the upstarts, who dare not look a generation back in their family tree, and who have now only "tho gold which gives the straitened forehead of tho fool?" Verily, yes. They know not the superiority of mind over mat- tor, because they havo never dealt in the fine article. I write with fooling because of « contemptible ploco of snobbish ill breeding witnessed a few days ago at a fashionable summer resort, when a woman of newly acquired social position turned her back upon a young spoola! correspondent, who, for her own amusement, was writing bright, interesting letters for several of the leading journals of the country, and who, by tho way, had previously declined to bo introduced to the woman who sought to mortify her. I saw the whole thing, and having a warm interest In tho correspondent, being myself a lover of newspaper work, I stepped up to her and sought to make her forget her embarrassment. "0, Beleno," she said, "did you imagine I felt insulted! No, no, mon amio, a lady wonld not insult another, and one less (nodding toward the offender) could not, you know;" and sho laughed merrily. "But," said she, "out of regard for those women who ore driven by stern necessity to wiold the pen as a weapon of defense against chill penury, will you not write an article defending them and showing that a woman may write for tho papers and still:bo unworthy the epithet of strong minded iu Ita objectionable sense of inanuishr" "Yes," said I, "and [ will show thorn that tho fact of a woman exercising her brain does not make her heart womanly or less sensitive, and neither The Story of ttip AV«Tulerl;ic-> of Two ixnd tho Fhmt n<Mmlnn. A fow niglits n^o a Tim°s roporti-r wltr ne.^e'1 a scene that brought tears to tho eyes of strocg men. It was the mentinj; of three brothers, two of whoui had b^en sopnnited from tho other for fifteen years. So intensely Interesting was the event thnt the reporter appro.iched the happy trio and obtained a nhort account of their lives. •- The eldest of th? three nrtrd ns Kpnkesman, »nd it was with great emotion that ho tints replied to the reporter: "\Ve three are brothers, Tho two eldest of us were born on the Ilnck of Gibraltar, where my parents lived for a number of years. Our homo on Giln-nltnr was afterward exchanged for one In Alexninlriii, R^ypt, and there it was tho youngest iu this group first opened his eyes to the light of heaven. In Alexandria we spent the golden hours of our youth. Father was captain of a Spanish bark, and (wldom did ho havo au opportunity of being «.t homo. At an early nge we liegan to manifest sonic desire to go to sea, and well can 1 remember how poor mother remonstrated and pleaded with us that we should banish luch Inclinations from our minds. ^*Ah, too well do I remember how she urged as to follow some other avocation, saying at the time: 'Since your father began his life as ft sailor I have hnd no plejisnro save in my boys, and now it seems that they loo must to. 1 - Boon after this my "father returned from I voyngo of nearly eighteen months, and when mother told.him thnt wo were thinking of going to sea, he, too, attempted to dissuade us from tho undertaking. Ho depicted In tho most thrilling manner the dangers and perils attending a life nt sea; ho reminded us of the toils and hardships incumbent on a sailor. Finding all this of no avail, ho forbade our leaving homo, at the same time threatening us with the severest .punishment In case we disobeyed him. At tbe timo of which I speak I was but 15, while the next eldest was 13. "He and I, in spito of all that had been said, determined to carry out our original designs. We kept quiet, however, until father was called away again. One night after father had been away for a little more than a week, brother and I stole noiselessly out of tho house and hurried down to tho harbor. Arrangements had already been made with the captain of a Norwegian bark «nd we went aboard content to do whatever the captain might demand. At au early hour In the morning tho bark set sail, and as we looked back into the direction of tho old home where a mother and a younger brother were sweetly pluiTilx-rlnp;, unconscious of tbo ntep we talren, tears bedimim-d our eyes ami vain would we have recalled the past fow hours; but tho step had been taken; the bark was DOW awiftly speeding before tho wind, and the only contentment we found was in work. Wo soon grew fond of our employment, and by our careful attention to duty won the esteem and confidence of the captain. Afl we grew older wo were appointed to-better |tosi- tions. Five long years we spent aboard the bark. "Brother and I accumulated somo money and we were contemplating a return homo when a circumstance occurred that changet our plan. Our captain was suddenly takei very ill and, despite all that could bo done for him, he grow rapidly worse, and within week from the'beginning of the attack, he breathed out his existence. Just before dying however, ho made his will bequeathing to mi and my brother tho bark, together with < Tost amount of money. After burying thi dead body of tho lamented captain, I assuin ed command of tho vessel, then on tho way tc Panama. We reached that, place in thi course of three weeks, and having dopositei our cargo again set sail. This time, however we were on a different voyage trom any heretofore made. Brother and I had not seen, an; member of our family for six years, and w were now on our way to Alexandria. It was some weeks before wo reached our destiua tiou. On arrival, brother and 1 hastened U tho old home, but our loved ones were not tx be found. "A neighbor infnnueit us that t.tie\ f hud not i in Alot.'uifh ia for at, l<?i-t tlireo years.

Let us be calm. does the possession of a fortune buy any one the right to bo nuludylike." Those who have never felt "the inspiration of the ink bottle" cannot comprehend that a woman would, for instance, rather write pleasant things of the people around her than whisper unkind, slighting remarks about them to the other women present. They cannot understand bow it is that she can enjoy passing so much of the day alone with her own thoughts, when she might be listening to their gossiping chatter; and so they turn and abuse her as strong minded I But If they only knew It she would rather bo afflicted with a strong mind than a weak ono, or, like some of her neighbors,'with G.OUO at all to speak of. They mean to be uncomplimentary, but she resents tho Implication of the mannish Idea, and (n reality feels flattered at what they intend for a slur. But the man- ulah female—what is she like? Surely a vastly different creature from the brave, talented, strong minded girl who wins the-respect- and admiration of tho cultured and truly refined wherever she goes. We do not and her often at tho literati's desk.' We are more likely to sea her at the races hobnobbing with the men, who in turn hobnob with the bookmakers. Decidedly, the strong minded woman is not the same typo^of tho mannish woman. The former is brave, the latter bold; the flnt is high toned in morals and manners, the latter Is essentially degraded In both particulars; therefore, It Is only natural that the latter should be made much of by tho masses of a certain class of society, while tha small minority appreciate the true woman, for Canon Farror said truly, "Only the remnant Is good."—"Selene" in Baltimore American.

Whnt Murltcrol Feed On. -•• Tho contents of the stomachs of mackerel were preserved on two days only, May 10and May-13,—The- fiiss nt thn fish~ma fi-Tmi eleven to thlrtoon and n half inches in length. On the first day mentioned the quantity of food taken from tho stomach averaged four drams to a stomach; on tho second day It averaged five and a third drams, except in tho caRO of one specimen, which afforded, eight drams. The average quantity of food to a stomach, therefore, agreed very closely with tho aver- ago results of surface organisms when towing with tho twelve inch net These deductions, however, arc based upon too fow observations to havo any Pjx-cial significance. It ia well known that tho surface organisms serving as food for mackerel and other pelagic fishes are very unequally distributed, and are constantly changing their position, appearing and reappearing under the varying conditions of tho water and atmosphere. WhUe sometimes they are apparently absent over wide areas, at others they form dense clouds, plainly distinguishable by their color. Such swarms would readily attract th» schools of rapidly swimming fishes, while thoy might easily escape tho notice of a fishing vcsfiol moving slowly from place to place. It is also probable, from previous observations of the fish commission, that the mackerel feeds to some extent below the surface. As to the character of its food the mackerel probably exercises little discrimination, but swallows all the smaller objects occurring iu ita path. Certain species or groups of species are, however, much more abundant than others, and these are recognized as its common or appropriate food. Such are tho copepods, the pelagic amphipods, somo of the pteropods, and perhaps Sngltta. On the present cruise several species of copepods, Themisto bisplnosa of amphipods, Spirialis, species of pteropods, and SagitUi elegaus wore tho most common and widespread, and thoy were all abundant in the stomachs examined. —Bulletin of the United Statra Fish Commission. * last year's stock, but direct from the manufacturer.
