BIG LOSS TO GOVERNMENT. Bemeunrement of French Shlpi *t San Franclico RaUe» TolU on the Foreign Veiieli. The work of the deputy surveyor of San Francisco in measuring the French vessels in the harbor has shown that all tne ships have been under- measured and the government nas thereby been cheated out of its Just dues m pilot fees and dockage and Custom tolls. In the case of several French ships it has been found that their tonnage lias been underestimated by several hundred tons. This government has in the past permitted rench vessels to register their tonnage according to their own measurements, but a recent order has been ecelved from Washington by which 'rench ships are to be placed on the ame basis of measurement as the American vessels. Ten vessels flying ae French flag have been measured nd in every instance It has been ound that the net tonnage has been ·ncreased under the laws of this ountry. -- suppose . , snoring Ward, Boiler Lies on Water Main " A Cleveland diver employed by the waterworks department at Lorain to investigate the condition of the water main under the river, which was crippled by the flood in January has reported that a boiler weighing 'a ton lies on the top of the pipe.

They had bright eyes and rosy cheeks, and they were all talking at once, as is characteristic of their type. A Greek florist poked a bunch of violets under the nose of the prettiest, says the New York Times. "Fina violet," he cooed. "Looka nice on lady dress." "They are pretty," said the young thing. "How much?" The Greek smiled with courtly grace "To lofely lady a-twenta cent" "Three for 75?" asked the girl with lightning calculation. "Three for a-seventy-flve if my lady say so," said the Greek with humility. The bargain was clinched, and the three young things were arranging the blossoms among their furs when one, who had been wearing a rather puzzled expression lor a few minutes, suddenly said: * "Ruth, It oughtn't to have amounted to 75 cents.
