WHISTLER AND THE MILLIONAIRE Ju»t Vt'lKit Ki-iiliy Orcurri'U T.'pon ii Ci-lo- ljl'!it«':l <)IT:V».:OII. Here is a true version of an oft-told Btory of Vv'h!:, Her, the dir.torlion bearing 'only a faint racial likeness to the original: A man from nowhere made a large fortune in London and at ouce proceeded to indulge a genuine, if somewhat crass, love of art. lie sent agents tho length r:nd breadth of Europe to purchase the liighe.st-pi-iced pictures to be had; old masters, if possible; if not, copies by first-class artists, if they could be got to do the worlc. Modern artists were patronized in tho original; in fact, he set Tip a private Luxembourg crossed ivith it spurious Louvre. The home he built him was magnificent. No man in London with leanings toward -art had such a house. Everybody, or nearly everybody, who was Invited went to see it, to remain, to » , even to gaze upon the millionaire s easel, brush in hand, the robes ipun or of Greece flowing about him. But- one crumpled roselcaf had tho millionaire. Whistler would not go to his home. Millais, Tadoma, Sargent ft-nd n hundred lights, only a triQe or so less distinguished, had graced his board, bnt Whistler could not be got through the front door. When he saw tbo millionaire coming ho whisked tiround the corner; his notes of invitation, of adulation, ho did not condescend to open: ho turned n deaf car to importunities of mutual friends. The art millionaire was in despair. ijia wino turned to gall, his palette grinned nt him, his sleep was infected With nightmare, which wore the dis- .dainful smirk of Whistler. Even tho .famous) white lock sccmcil to assume an !'ftlr of lofty unattainableness. , I short, ho was miserable, for until .Whistler, the cxigcant, tho eccentric, tho impossible, set, thccnchet of his approval, tho art millionaire's position in tho world of art was open to dispute. One day Whistler abruptly sent him W$d that he would call upon him tho nox^feoorning at ten »'elock. V/hatac- •'taatccffjjjtjbo great man will never bo known. ^^" simplest explanation is that it -wasfinoof his many freaks.

Whistler permitted his stony stare to roam from one object to another, then swung his host about, led him through tho por- 'tieres. and made for the entrance. As 'they- descended the grand staircase 'the millionaire burst forth: "Great heavens, Mr. Whistler! Ain't you going to say anything?" . ' Whistler turned abruptly and ro- ignrdc/l him. for a moment with a solemn stare. .Then he brought his hand heavily down on the millionaire's bnck and exclaimed hoarsely: "it's amazing!

Heretofore proselyting efforts have been confined to separate localities. The purpose of the new movement is to send missionaries throughout the various States systematically. The leader of tho movement is Ilcrmann Warszawiak, who for bcveral years was in charge of the Jewish work of the City Missionary society.

Christian Science church will not differ widely from that of any other sect, save that it will include the use of Mrs. Eady's book, entitled, "Science and Health," in perhaps equal measure with the Uiblo. The reading will be from the two alternately; tho singing will bo from a compilation called the "Christian Science Uymnal," but its songs are for the most part those devotional hymns from Herbert, Fabcr, Robertson, Wesley, Bowring, with selections from \Vhitticr and Lowell, such as are found in the books of the Unitarian churches. Baptism is not administered, but the Lord's supper will 'be celebrated with silent prayer and without the bread Or the wine. The congregation of this church Jn Boston has steadily increased in membership since it was born, fifteen years ago, until it now numbers about 4,000,of whom SOO a»-e residents ;of the city. Any Christian scientists in any part of the world may become part of the mother church by simply making application and signing the rules aud tenets. The haud of fellowship consists of reading the names from the pulpit. The •creed, if it can be called such, declares the Scriptures to be the guide to eternal life: it acknowledges one supreme God, and also His Son and tho Holy Ghost, and man as the Divine im- ngc'and likeness, it recognizes God's forgiveness of "sin in its. destruction, and declares that siu and suffering arc. not eternal;' the atoncmS.it is declared to bo the efficacy arid evidence of Divine love and of man's unity with God, and in conclusion acknowledges, tho way of salvation, demonstrated by Jesuit, to ba the no-wer of truth OTCT all rr.orosED c before them a plan for the erection of | a Christian syuagofjue. In proposing his plan he said that in his judgment there were thousands of Jews in the United States who would accept tho doctrine of the Christian religion were a Christian synagogue to be erected at a central point. It was finally decided to erect the building in this city. An architect was engaged to draw up the plans and a site has been chosen in the Bowery, between Grand and Uroomo , ntreets. The site is nearly in the heart ; 'of the Jewish quarter, and it is believed that if a handsome building- is erected the. converts will increase by thousands. The synagogue will cost in the neighborhood of $150,000. The synagogue, or training school for Christian Jews, as it will be designated, will be called Christ's synagogue, and will be arranged with the purpose of uniting all the different features of East side missionary work found in the University settlement and other organizations. There will be a library, a well-equipped gymnasium nnd a playroom. It is Mr. Warszawiak's purpose to establish a place which will attract ' young people,, among whom a greater part of the woi-k of proselyting will be carried on. A principal feature of tho movement will be the training of missionaries to be sent to all parts of the country. A short time a-go Mr. Warszawiak converted and baptized a Jewish rabbi at Allentown, Pa. This convert will bo one of the superintendent's chief assistants in the management of the new synagogue. RAILROAD BICYCLE. Clever Invention of u Ciillforiilan on Er- Iilbltion in Cliiciipro. One of the curiosities shown at the bicycle show at Chicago was an invention by a young Californian named J. W. liitchcy. H is a machine for pedul- kig along railway tracks, and the inventor claims for it a speed of from • twenty to twenty-live miles nn hour. The means by which liitchcy has adapted the fiiuiiliar roadster to the gauge of a railway are as follows: lie has attached a four-inch Hanged wheel, shaped exactly like a large spool, to a rod in front of the hind wheel, and a similar one on an arm projecting about three i'eet in front. In addition to this an ciglitcon-inch wheel at the end of a rod so arranged as not to interfere with the working of the pedals, runs on the other rail. In this way the machine is ; perfectly balanced, and all. the rider has to do is to work the pedals iu the usual way. The inventor sccins to !>c- }ieve that before long semi-deserted Th« Fortrew of Gibraltar,mid Hi Vain* ' Gibraltar proper virtually occupies a peninsula which guards the. passage between the Atlantic ocean and the Mudiu-rrunean. says London Temple liar It is a favorito military and oaral station, wherein oliiuers of both services can resign for the season their professional cares for lighter joys Us works of defenses its bomb-proof batteries and lilliput fortresses heavily armed, more resemble the bulwarks of nature than those by the hand of L;an. They are svcll grouped together, even in a small area, because Gibraltar in no case exceeds throe-quarters of a mile in breadth. The rock rises abruptly from the low, sandy, peninsula-like isthmus to about fourteen hundred foot ubovo the level of the sea- From its summit a view ia obtained of unique sublimity It can only bo appreciated when seen. The mighty Mediterranean soa stretches uwiiy ' n the background, aliko shadowy anil grand in see-nit- beauty, stuau-.t-rs and shipping ever traversing its. waters. In another direction the Atlantic ocean .and expanded waters of tin- bay of liiscav. washing tho shores of Spain, arc prominent features. (Jiinillar was known to the tlrceks and Romans as Calpe of A by hi. The strip of In ml near Covica w::s named A'tiyla. For ma::y centuries they formed the renowned Pillars of Hercules, the then limit of oi'onn enterprise and commerce. I'.s strategical value to England is of paramount importance, being really the key of the position along which the isurohants of the world pass upon the st-as on their lawful vocations. If. unfortunately, this country were engaged in war. with 1'Yanec and Russia combined against her, we might find ourselves in "Queer street" without Gibraltar. Of course, the peninsula is much exposed to the destructive energies of the ocean waves. Sometimes the sea is calm and almost motionless, a picture of a vast plain of azure-like glass. At other time* dark clouds chase each oilier over its surface, peals of thunder and forked lightning are heard and seen, and then the waves become lurid-like in their aspect and break with a roar on the peninsula. The ocean's surfy, slew deep, mellow voice, full of awe and mystery, breaks night and tiny against the rocks, moaning, as it wore, over the duad that it holds in its bosom, for the sea is the largest of all ccmuterios, and its slumberei-s sleep without monuments. In other graveyards distinction is shown between' the grave of the peer and that of the peasant, but in the sea and ocean, closely encircling our precious possession. Gibraltar, the same waves roll over all, and the same requiem is sung by the minstrelsy ol t!i« ocean in their honor. The same utorm beats, and the same sun shines over their remains, bnt the graves are UDmarkcd, It is the general and popular belief that Gibraltar is an impregnable fortress, but grave doubts have arisen during the last Uvcnty-Qve years as to whether "the rock" is really l.he impenetrable quadrilateral it is generally supposed to be. All political parties of the state appear to be agreed that if there- arc any defects they should be rectified, hence the action of the government in sending out-the dnke of Cambridge to inspect and report upon the necessary requirements, the absolute accessary strength of the garrison and other material and detail matter.

Sonth Africa is the home of a species .of earthworm, a creature closely related • to our common angltworm, which is not i only a giant among the denizens of tho I Boil, but which is reputed to have a ! taste for human blood. There are two i species of this unco.nny wiggler. one of , a dark- red color and the other almost j black. They are larger than one's finger, and from three to four foot in lenc'th, EXCAVATIONS in Babylon have brought to light a number of bricks, tho stamps on" which .prove them to be at least i 4,000 years old. They appear to be as 1 good now u when they were first j 1 baked. > ARTIFICIALAIDTOTHE MEMORY, Systunm •o Boca In Cx'-stenco Since tbe' ys of AnrlcnC E:rv|»t The art of rendering artificial aid to the memory by associating iu the mind tilings diijjfiilt to remember with those which are easy of recollection is said to have originated with the Egyptians. The first person to reduce it to a system was. according to Cicero, the poet Simonicles, who Li-red 500 years H. C. Flis plan is known as the topical or locality plan, and is outlined by the Philad'elpliia Times as follows: Choose a large house with a number of differ- ently'furnished apartments in it. Impress upon the mind carefully all that is noticeable in the house, so that the mind can readily go over ail its parts. Then place a series of ideas in the house, the first in the hall, the ai'st in the sitting-room, and so on with the rest. Now, when one wishes' to recall these ideas in their proper succession, commence going through the house, and the idea placed in each department will be found to readily recur to the mind in connection with it. -It is related that the mnemonic plan was first suggested to the poet by a tragic occurrence. Having been called from n banquet just before the roof of the house fell and crushed all the rest of the company, he found on returning that the bodies were so mutilated that no individual could be recognized, but bv remembering the places which they had severally occupied at the table, he was able' to identify them. Me was" thus led to notice that the order of places may, by association, suggest the order of things.

For several years experiments have been made ID the Uernjan army in the training of dojs for service in the hospital department. Not long ag-o, saya the Detroit Free Press, the \vcll-known animal painter, Jean Cun^artz, was commissioned, to take up the matter, and his recent report occasioned high praise from the emperor and the army. The Crsl important step v»:is the selection of a breed of do^s possessing all thu cjiuililics neeessaj-y for the purposu, viz.: Obedience, watchfulness, intelligence, fidelity ami uersuvcranec. Thes« qualities \vcr<- found in the Scotch uol- lie in the hi^^at decree, and this breed was, therefore, scieclod by Uun^artx. The equipment of the dog- consists oi a strong collar with a small leather poeketbook for letters, a small w,-it.er- proof blanket for his rest at ni^hl. and two pockets containing a small surgeon's outfit, linen, medicines and o small amount of do^ biscuit. The entire load is less than ten pound* and can be easily carried by the dog- for da_ys. ilis services are most important in the search for the wounded or dead; he often brings first help to a soldier fallen in brush or underbrush and completely hidden from sight; he makes an excellent courier, and runs from hospital to command or vice versa, faithfully delivering 1 messages intrusted to his care as fast as a cavalryman, with much less danger to both courier and message. A large red cross marks each side pocket, and designates his connection with the sanitary and relief corps, lie also carries a small lantern on his back, to enable the litter bearer to follow him in his search for .the wounded or dead at night. -rnc Uc»d Sea of America. Medical lake, so-called on accottnt ol the remedial virtues of its waters, situated on the great Columbian plateau in southern Washington, at an altitude of 2.300 feet above the level of the Pacific, is the Dead sea of America. It is about a mile long- and from a half to three-quarters of a mile in width, and •with a maximum depth of about sixty feot. The composition of the waters of this Alpine lake is almost identical with that of the Dead sea, of Palestine, and, like its oriental count»,rp:Lrt. no plant has yet been found growing in or near its cd'ges. It is all but devoid of animal life, a species of large "boat bug," a queer, liftle terrapin, and the famous ''walking fish" being- its only inhabitants.
