Kill-nine J'» Cotl«-K<> Con ran. Speaking of snobbishness. the Listener ia glad to imve occasion to noto n case of old fashioned manly absence of that unpleasant reality. Spending a Sunday recently with a friend in a very delightful summer rrsort not far away, where a good rrmny pleasant cottages have been built on a cliff commanding a tine view of the summer sea, the Listener happened to be sitting on the veranda with his friend as a milkman's wngon drew up in the street. The milkman, a sturdy young fellow, of pleasant face, dismounted, rang a bell by way of warning to the maids of the vicinity to get their pitchers ready, anil then started around with his cans and his pint measure. As he passed around to tho back door of the cottage, the Listener's friend Baluled him as one gentleman salutes another. And when the milkman had gone the other said: "That young man is a member of the class of '00 at Harvard college." "Indeedr "Yes. He is carrying himself through entirely by his own exertions, and he takes this way of helping himself out. 1 dare say he makes enough money selling milk at a good figure to the people here in tho summer time to pny tho greater part of his expenses for the remainder of the year at Cambridge." "Does ho water his milk?" "Not perceptibly. It is very good milk, and I have no doubt he is as honest as the business allows." There was a young man in the house who belongs to the class below the milkman's in college, and he testified to the excellent standing of the young man at Harvard. Such an Incident is one of a good many which go to prove that Harvard men are by no means all idle swells.' Perhaps there is not nearly so large a proportion of students at Harvard who earn money in the summer time by table waiting nt the mountain and seaside resorts as at Dartmouth or Arnherst, but there are certainly a good many men there who ' -Boston Transcript. A Big Steamer's Twin Screws. When Capt. Watkins, of tho City of Paris, left Queenatown on tho 25th of last month and started on a course fifty- nine miles shorter than his famous run- shorter because he ran northward where the world grows smaller and came down over tho shoulder of "tho great globe _we inhexit,"_taking _any_possiblq chance there might be of fogs and ice in cross- Ing the banks of Newfoundland at this season—tho engines were put at full speed, and for something over four days they were driven at the average rate of ninety revolutions of the screws per minute. There wag a variation from eighty-six to ninety-two revolutions. When the furnaces were-.opened to be cleaned the intensity of tho steam would be diminished for u few minutes and the speed of the screws reduced to eighty? six turns in the minute. It will be noted that the average speed was three revolutions in two seconds, and the screws are twenty feet in diameter. It is astonishing that this velocity can be maintained day and night without a second's waiting and avoid developing excessive and crippling heat. The fact that thirty men are employed to pour oil upon the bearings and all parts where the friction is severe will perhaps account in part for the phenomena, but certainly only the greatest perfection of material, and the most delicate adaptation of one part to the other, could provide for such a strain without disaster. I doubt whether so startling a test of integrity and absolute exactitude In manufacture can be found in any other machinery. During tho late run of tho City of Paris tho wind was so strong from the north one afternoon as to givo tho ship a decided lift, elevating the larlxurd screw so that at each turn the blades threw showers of spray with a dazzling rush far behind the vessel. There are four blades in the screw, revolving three times in two seconds—so there were six white surges per second dashed to the winds, and a tine reminder of the snowy rapids of Niagara.—M. Halstead's "On tho Bounding Billows. 1 ' The New Soltine. A recent issue of The Farmington Register, of Oregon, contains a letter from Andrew Saltise, the head of the Coeur d'Alene Indians, asking the saloon men not to sell his people liquor. He says if any of them are found drunk in town he would like to have the city marshals arrest them and send word to him, and he will go and get them and put them in hia jail. He also talks to the county clerk about estrays, and says hia people lose many horses. He closes by saying: "I want to be at peace with all the whites, and would like to have tho whites use my people as they use one another." It is but a few years since Saltise rode at the head of tho Cceur d'Aleno warriors and was a savage chief ridea around the country taking a fatherly interest in his tribe and keeping them straight. He is thrifty and well to do, and rides into town in a comfortable carriage behind a good pah- of horses. Mew" 8tji«a of Ponta! Card*. The new postal cards soon to be issued will vary in size.

Foot—Compliments That Chinese Etiquette Prescribe!—The \Velrome That Dr.!n£i!one Got from Afr'cnin. Connected with tho . welcoming of guests and tho greeting of friends throughout the world are sonic of society's most singular customs. In scriptural days the usual form of salutation among the Hebrews WHS "Shalom lek- ha," or "Peace bo with thce.", Tlio B.ime expression is in --ogue today among Uio Arabs, who in response to it Ray, "\\ ith thee be peace." The forrual salutations of the orientals are quite profuse, being accompanied with various ceremonies; oftentimes they will embrace and kiss one another, and an inferior will bestow a kiss on tho hand or beard of a superior. To such a degree was formality carried in tho Bible lands that we are told that the prophet who sent his servant in great haste to lay his staff upon the dead child forbade him to salute anybody on the way lest he lose precious time. For a similar reason the Saviour bade tho seventy to salute none while on a journey. One of the prevailing modes of salutation among the Hebrews was the obei- B ance which brought tho person making it to the ground, his beard literally touching tho dust. The Philippine Islanders rub their faces gently with the hand or the foot of the person whom they salute. If the foot is chosen the visitor is put to much personal discomfort, and travelers h.ive found it difficult to maintain their equilibrium during the ceremony. It takes a practical acrobat to submit to tho code of salutations in use among tho people of tho Straits of tho Sound. Wo have it from Houtuian that "they raised his left foot, which they passed gently over hi* right leg and thence overjiis face." This is a little more complex than our universal Yankee method of shaking hands. and not near BO desirable. tS THE FLOWERY KINGDOM. Some Ethiopians rob their acquaintances of their robes, which they coolly tie about their own waists, thus leaving tho saluted individual half naked in his presence. The Japanese, more polite, only take off a slipper, and tho Arracans doff their sandals when they salute in the street, and their stockings when they meet in the house. The ChinpR" T" 1 """' ' ' -nuns wiuoii is zealously adhered to in nearly every part of .the Flowery King dorn. If two persons meet after a long separation they celebrate tho event by falling on their faces to the earth several times in succession. -A Chinaman is apt to indulge in what we would term "putting it on." Ask one how ho find.-) himself in health, and ho is likely to answer, "Very'well, thanks to your abundant felicity." Chinese etiquette pie- scribes the use of salutations and compli ments with-a minuteness that-staggers one who wishes to become perfect in them. It tells where the stranger is to be seated, how many bows ho is to receive, and when the welcome is to be given with the right hand,.and when UK. left. The lower class of Chinese respect these punctilios, and ambassadors must practice them for forty days before they "can present themselves nt court. It is to the wild nations, however, that wo go for the curious in salutation. When two New Zealanders come together they go .through an outlandish ceremony called tangi. They first cover themselves with mats that envelop the whole form, except one eye, squat on the ground facing each other and weep co piously. This is carried on for some little time, when they shorten the distance between them, and at last press their noses together, all tho time giving utterance to expressive grunts. This last performance seems to satisfy New Zealand etiquette, for the parties then give themselves up to lively conversation. Among the people of New Guinea the greeting ceremony consists of pinching. The person who bestows the welcome pinches the tip of the other's nose with the finger and thumb of the right hand, while with the left he pinches the middle of his own stomach, muttering over and over the word "Alagasuka." Tho reader will see from this that while Papuan etiquette is not intricate, the pinching part is not very desirable. BOLLINO IN THE SAND. The Batoka people, who live along the banks of the famed Zambesi, have an odd method of expressing their f eelings in the way of welcoming people to their good graces. The women usually clap their hands and titter a strange sound, and the men stoop and strike their hips with then- palms. But when the Batoka gentlemen wish to show off in the, way of salutation they drop on their backs and roll over in tho eand.slapping their thighs vigorously, and crying out, "Kina-bombal Kina- bombal" at the top of their lungs. Dr. Livingstone was diverted by the unwonted spectacle of a score or more of naked sable giants going through this singular ceremony, and tried to stop them; but the more the explorer protested the heartier grew hia reception, and he had to wait patiently until they announced that he had been thoroughly welcomed to Batoka land.. The Nuehr tribe of the Nile country have a mode of salutation peculiarly their own. When Petherick, the traveler, came among these people he was accorded the reception given to persona of high degree. -The-Nuehr-chief--wha entered, the traveler's tent grasped the white man's hand and deliberately spat in it. After a moment of silence he repeated the process. Petherick's first impulse was to resent the indignity by knocking the fellow down, but, restraining hia indignation, he returned the compliment with considerable emphasis. This seemed to delight the chief, and the traveler was released to gee his attendants subjected to the same barbarous welcome. After all, the most expressive welcome i* given when band meets hand and eye responds to eye.—T. C. Harbaugh hi Rttsburg Bulletin. LUCE O» H LAW HIE r-KOS., M'g'rs. * liliRKB & CO., Ads. "a-orst i K.

"Not only is a bookworm's absorption often injurious to his health, but it is a well authenticated fact that disease may be written between tho lines of books, bo they fiction, poetry or theology. The average patron of a circulating library is a person not overscrupulous as to the care of a borrow-ed volume. lie will allow filth to accumulate rapidly within and without, and, if a member of the household be stricken with measles, or scarlatina, or even diphtheria or smallpox, like as nottho book will find its way hi to tho presence or the lapoi tho invalid, la be transferred thence a little later to the shelves of the library,"and then to the hands of some unsuspecting reader. "The leaves of the book easily absorb the germs of disease that float in the atmosphere.

' - A London Cabby's English. < One does not expect to speak bis mother tongue in tho highways and byways of Paris, Berlin or Vienna, but in London onu hopes at least to be understood, as is often not tho case. A Wash- ingtoniun doing tho sights of this English capital ordered hia cabman to drive to the Alhambra. "Where is it, sir?" asked the cabby. "Well, my man, that's what I don't know and what you ought to know, if you pretend to know your business." Poor cabby was nonplused and asserted with evident mortification that though ho had made his living as a London cabman since boyhood he had never heard of such a place as tho Alhambra. "Why," -said the much disgusted American, "it's a place where Jhey Jiaye_music_and_dancing ,andjplentj_ to drink."
