Cleveland arrived at Gray Cables with her children to spend the BUinmer there, she found that iu th winter many changes iiud improvement had been, made about the extensive property. A heavy storm last winter tore a great hole in the sea wail tha.t protects the house and its immediate grounds, and t.his has been replaced by a stronger and more hand- tome embankment of stone. The big lily pond had been emptied nnd cleaned and then refilled. Thera are now growing aquatic plants of thi> rarest and most beautiful kinds. Mrs. Cleveland is especially fond of the \vatev lilies, and,the president had this pond made a year or two ago for her benefit. On the shore of the Monument river side of the estate there is an oystur- inan's cabin, the only building on the 100-acre tract that the president doe-5 not own. The oystormnn built his cabin before Mr. Cleveland bought the property, oad it is s'aM that the president did not know it was there for two or three years.

Work on the new steel vault for th-j •storage-of 'silver coin in the basement of the United States subtreasxiry in Wall street is progressing- rapidly, and <he contractor expects to Lave itrendy for use in about two weeks. There ar; now SO.OOO.OOO silver dollars and more than $5,000.000 in subsidiary silver coin stored in the subtrcasury basement, and the necessity for additional vault room has of late become pressing. •• •• T-he new vault is a box 13 feet square and ten feet high, made of steel plates two inches, thick. It is firmly set in the corridor adjoining- the old steel vault, and it will hold about $0,000,000 in silver coin. Inasmuch as there is comparatively little silver coinage go-, ing ou in this country at present, it is not expected that the new vault will fill up very rapidly. The silver dollars that arc now In storag-e, however, are likely to remain there indefinitely. The experience of i:ian,y yea rs has proved that it is impossible to keep them in circulation.

He was the best horseman in Hungary and managed many bands of brigands whose work never conflicted. Twenty-five years ago he and Czouka were captured and charged with many murders anci robberies. Czouka.so.id he was willing to confess to the murders nnd robberies were too trifling to, tall about. He was given 20 years. The leader wa-s sentenced for life and diet In prison.

She •.VHS a .slender girl, with Titian frizes and calm blue eyes. They were returning from a four o'clock tea and they were fortunate enough to get, a ear which v.-:is net so overcrowded as to preclude the possibility of a seat for the young lady. As tin- young man held to his strap and bent in the direction of the girl, he sa.id: "You remember we were discussing heredity at Mrs. Gildersleeve's?" The young- lady nodded. , "Xow, across yonder is a case in point. Do you see the woman with n chikl on her lap?" She looked and saw and announced —jit she did.

They v. ill lose their roundness nod gradually assume the expressionless characteristic \ou noiii.-e in the woman who is holding it." The cnr went around a sharp bend jusi then, and the young man's mind was diverted temporarily from the doctrine of heredity to a practical application of the doctrine which says that bodies continue to go in t.he direction in which tier gcr, started until that direction is ch.-i.nged by a superior force. I forget what the doctrine is called. But when he regained his equilibrium he began nga.in. "The child wears a tasteful coat, but that is accidental rather than c. matter of selection. I ha.ve no doubt that its mother picked it off a bargain counter End made it presentable by cleansing the shopworn spots. My conclusion as to her lack of natural taste is strength- j?n?<l by the fact that with the Blue coat the child is wearing a pair of green mittens much too large for it." 'Then there is but little hope for the future of the poor little thing-, I suppos^r" said the j'ou'ng ladj". "Xbnc whatever, the laws'of heredity- being what they are,'"'replied the young- man, with unshakable confidence. "I am very sorry to hear you say that, Jfr.

What ho thought may be imagined M-hen it is noted that the young lady's father is worth-Sl,000,000, nnd this was really the young man's first opportunity to malje an inipres- sion upon her, and that he was cherishing the delusion that he was succeeding in his effort.—N.

If you value your life it is wise to promptly obey the orders of a bandit that has got the drop on you and is showing you the interior of his gun., ..My experience has taught me this. I rtjnoinber the close call I had in Arizona. I was hunting alone one day when a bad man hove in sight, and befoi-e I could realize his intention requested me to hold up my hands and keep them up while I dismounted from my horse. I knew if I attempted to reach for my rifle or revolver that would be the signal for hostilities to begin, and as the other fellow would get the firstshotmy chances would be slim. So I meekly erected my arms in a pcrpedio.ular position and got off my horse with as much alacrity as ivas possible under the circumstances. In trying to release my foot from the stirrup I frightened the horse and he started off on a run. Before he knew what had happened the animal had upset the bandit, and his pistol flew out of his hand. This is where I came in, and the persuasive eloquence of my gun induced the outlaw to march ahead of me all the way to our camp, and there we dcta.ined him until we could turn him Over to the officers of the law. Xow, you sec, if I ha<J parleyed with that Arizona desperado I probably wouldn't be here to tell this story."— Philadelphia Times. Saluting: Che Flair.
