Sf/ie Woman's Journal gives a very interesting 'account, of the experience gttincd In Washington territory, where women, sit regularly as' jurors. The writer says; "Some features of the .now departure were sometimes slightly comical. Once, when the jurors reported in attendance at the opening of the term, one among them, summoned from a distant, point of the county, was H woman somewhat lank in person and unfashionable in attiro, who held by the hand a small boy, very round and rosy,! of about 8 or 1 suminors. Nobody supposed she would bo allowed to remain with that small iticurabratice, but the judge told her if the child be- havod well slie imight : keep. <him.:with her. So, when she was drawn - (which was frequently), she/ always took the end chair of the bnok row of ;seats, und the round little boy, took a tiny rocking-chair which the shorilT had kindly sent, down from his own home, and here the little fellow would sit thropgh .the. long hours, calmly, rocking and his thumb, or -looking at a pic- turn-book,!seldom sleeping, apparently attentive 1 to .what- was. going, pn, and never; once trQnbling,bi8 mother or distracting her< attention.

The city of Cleveland, for example, which was largely Republican iast year, is now Democratic-, and Toledo, which was Democratic last year, now goes overwhelmingly Republican. Election H.

In an uvliolo on "Tkc Profits ol Novel-Writing," in The Cosmopolitan, William Westiill, the English novelist, says: It will thus ho seen that novel- writing nowadays' is a precarious and not very profitable calling. A very fair price, as things go, is $2,000 for the serial rights of a full-length story, and assuming that tho author mukes $400 by tlio.throu-vohimc! edition and as much more by a cheap edition, his total profit would amount to $ii,800— not a groat deal, considering the labor and tho time that tho writing of a novel involves. It should' also be boruo in mind that unless a m.iu strikes oil at the first venture he may have to peg away for years before his reputation justifies him in asking threo or four hundred pounds for the serial- right, or n third of the smaller sunn for tho other rights. Ho may, indeed,'-' never obtain anything like these prices; and after one or two attempts, retire discomfited from tho field. On the other hand,. there arc undoubtedly prizes, and if a writer ,reaehea tho top of the tree and is as prolific as Miss Braddon, he can make, if not a great fortune, at' any rate a handsome income, by his pen. Miss Braddon, I should think, makes more money by fiction than any other writer of the day. Hei- fertility is prodigious. She obtains high prices for her serial rights. She has kept her copyrights in her own hands, and her books are always selling. Novels that shu wrote twenty and more years ago are still bringing grist to her mill, and if she were to stop writing to-morrow her two shilling novels would continue to yield her a revenue for as many years to come. I believe Miss Braddon gets abouf $5,000 for the serial rights of a new story, and as she writes something like two a year, or at any rote three in two years, her takings from this source alone must be considerable. There may be two or three other writers who command as high a price.but none who is equally popular and prolific.— ' Whether her works will live is another question. i am speaking of the present. When General Mantetiffel, in 1800, levied a contribution of 20,000,000 florins ($10,000,000) on Frankfort-on- thc-Main, Baron Mayer Karl von Rothschild WAS indignant, am\ demanded: "Does your Excellency realize the full meaning of the word million? Has your Excellency ever seen a million of money?" The general was nonplussed, as, indeed, he had never seen such a sum at once, and to get out of the pickle he altogether remitted the con tribution. Frankfort thereafter always considered Rothschild "a bigger man" than Manteuflel. Before that General Vogel von FalkRiistein made an assessment of 6,700,000 florins ($2,280,000) upon tho city, and sent "two soldiers with a wheelbarrow" to fetch it. Ho was much surprised to learu that the BUinof money weighed about fifty tons. BROWN'S Combining IUON with PUKE YFXIBTABIE TONICS, quickly ana completely CUUN8K8 und KKUICIIKS TUB I1LOOD.
