James Wilson of the Fifth ifl- fantry, United Slates Army, is under treatment in a Government asylum for Insanity. His wifo appealed to the war dCD&rtmenl to have pftrl o! her husband's salary given her for the support of herself and children. This the department decided, after H, court had been »ppointed to investigate Mr. Wilson's condition, could- not be done, and Mr?. Wilson has eince appealed her case to tbe courts. The department's decision in the matter is based on a strange theory. It recognizes that Lieut. Wilson is insane, and should he held at St. Elizabeth's, but it further holds that he "is mentally competent to handle his own salary, and that if he does not provide for his family the department cannot compel him to do so.'j Made from highly refined pensive ingredients, and leaves neither acid nor alkali in the food.

It Isn't so much that money i« scarcer, although that Is true, but that tastes and standards have changed for the better. Young men'd dissipations take milder, or at least less conspicuous forms.

Lumjiiis in Harper's Magazine. It is largely a barricade of abrupt brown ridges, springing' almost from the surf to hide the real California from inquisitive eyes and winds. Nature has spent toe much on the garden to have capital left for painting 1 the fence, and it stands the primal pattern which humanity has unconsciously followed in nil such lands—Eden hidden behind an adobe wall. Here and there through a craok in the weathered fence a green tendril of a valley creeps. Yonder is a bit of shore with its dark citrus patch; a barren candlestick of a headland, with the white shaft of its lighthouse; a roadstead flecked with fishers' sails; clouds of sea-birds that snow upon a smelt-ruffled reach of sea. With dawn of the third day we are at the beginning of the wayside—tying- up, at San Diego, to the last wharf with which our steamer will -venture upon such familiarities in live weeks, with time to visit that Arabian Nights hotel whose site I knew first as sandspit dear at ten dollars the mile; then as sands- pit plus auctioneer and buyers of lota to a million dollars; and now as sands- pit turned garden, whose chief fruit is one of the finest hotels in America. San Diego is the last of the United States, but not the least. It is already characteristic as New England—more so, for the New Englancler rules hero as not at home, Spain has gone to the wall; and the Yankee, with new wings and room for them, pervades all. One may half guess the patron saint of Spain set down now in. the lap of his namesake daughter, to rub his eyes at the changed faco of her, and at her sons, who know not a saddle from a santo, and whose only saints ring their own mass. It is the last anachronism. The Spanish spirit is as far to-day from the twenty-five-foot-frout idea as in the golden age of Cortes. To its bonighte understanding still, money is good fo what it will buy, and the object of lif is to live. Faco and form are new, but the olc names are cherished— : with the distor tion which is the peculiar Sa>:on priv ilege and joy. Four-fifths of all the place names in California are Spanish and four-fifths of them a Spaniard would not recognize in the mouth o the intruder. A few hours' stay, and then the city etched on its tilted sheet of sand, th the peninsula and its great hotel, the blue islets of Coronada, fall behind, anc our land is the first profile of Baja California—gray-brown arid peaks, featured like those northward, but more careworn and more inhospitable. Presently the Pacific blue overflows them, and we arc quite at sea. Two days thus; and on the sixth the mountainous desert wades out again to greet us, and •with the last ray of red, the striking front of Cape St. Lucas, southernmost tip of the great peninsula, and outpost sentinel of the Vermilion sea. With sunrise of the seventh morning we waken ungrateful to the blankets of bedtime. The step across the gulf's mouth ia from the temperate to the tropics—a change of worlds overnight. We are anchoring off Mazatlan. Its turquoise scmilune of a bay, symmetrically set between three tall abrupt islands to the north, and three to tho south, cuts the very edge of the town, •whose adobe turns marble with dis; tanc«iandthesun. On its northern outer islaml—once stronghold of countless runaway slaves—perches the lighthouse, three hundred feet aloft- This outpost of the tropics — she leagues south of the tropic of Cancer, and already in sight of the Southern Cross—is the commercialJy first port of the Pacific coast of Mexico, and the second of the whole republic. It is key to the Gulf of California—or Gulf of Cortes, .for its discoverer; or Mar Bermejo, for the tinging of its waters by ferruginous rivers—and to an extensive interior of vast potentiality. It was port not only for Sinaloa, but ior Sonora, Chihuahua, Dnraugo and even to Zacatecas, until the opening of ports at San Bias and Manzanillo cut it down at home, and San Francisco put a knee in its direct China trade. especially,prized an old gobbler wh'ch had been loug in his possosuioii. From one cruise, says Ihirper's Young People, he brought home :L mischievous young monkey, which raado as much trouble as the proverbial "white elephant." One day, hearing a tcn-ible commotion in the hennery, the captain entered and found Jodco with the gobbler under his arm, while he was deliberately pulling out the poor bird's last tail-feather. The captain rescued the turkey and punished the monkey severely, who knew very well why he was chastised. The next day, again, hearing a commotion among the feathered tribe, the captain went to tho scene of action, and there sat Jocko with tho much persecuted gobbler between his knees, while he was trying to put the feathers back. Uis intentions were good, but the turkey seemed unable to appreciate them. LANGUAGE OF THE HEN. Trying to.Atone. " A sea captain who.lived in Washing* ton during his stays on land had a oreat fancv for fowls of all Borta.- miu) Notes oil Vfnrnliic, Call* to Dlonnr and (Hber Methods of Communication. The ordinary domestic fowl affords the most positive evidence of the possession of a language that is understood, says a writer in the Pittsburgh Dispatch. There aro many decidedly different; calls, which if taken down in a phonograph and repeated in a henhouse or yard would produce interesting results. I need but mention a few calls to illustrate the range of sounds in tho domestic fowls." On a. warm day, •when hens are released from their coop, when their minds are undisturbed and all nature looks bright and inviting, they sing as they feed—a continuous repetition of kerr-kerr-kerr, with various modulations. Tho rooster never utters it, nor the mother hen; it is the song of the happy-go-lucky of hen creation. : Now let a hawk appear in tho sky'or an.y disturbing clement; an entirely different sound is heard. Tho hen stops, stretches her head upward, and, with the cock, utters a decided note of warning in a high falsetto, k-a-r-r-r-o! And if the enemy still comes on it is repeated, and every bird in tho vicinity lowers its head and runs to cover. The sound says in the gallus language: "An enemy is coming, run!" and run they do, the kerr-kerr-kerr being discontinued only when all dange is past. Note the joyous call of the hen that has laid an egg. Cut-cut, ca-da cut! comes oft repeated | from the hen house, and other envious hens are in formed beyond any question or mis take that Mrs. Gallus has laid an egg. Now, when the eggs are hatched w have other and maternal notes. Ther is a deep, monotonous cluck! cluck that is a warning to others and a gen eral admonition of the chicks to re main near, but it ia not a call. Note the difference when the mother or proud cock finds a worm. The cock appears to bo greatly exeited, and ho pretends to peek at it, make the guileless hens believe that he is about to devour the bonne t*uche himself; all the tune he is saying cut, cut, cut—come, come, come—rapidly, which causes the hens to rush pell-mell in his direction, to find in many instances nothing, being merely a device to call the flock away from some rival. But in the case of the mother the little ones always find some tidbit which she has discovered. I will not attempt to produce the baby talk of tho old hen to her chicks, but it exists in great variety and is suggestive of tenderness, affection and solicitude. When the hen has her brood beneath her ample fold she often utters a sound like c-r-a-w-z-z-e of half warning and contentment. And when an intruder enters the coop after dark she utters a high, prolonged whistling note like w-h-o-o-e, softly repeated, indicative of wonder and slight alarm. H now the fox or coyote or other enemy seize her how quickly comes an entirely different cry—a scream of terror and alarm, c-i-a-i-a-i-o-u, repeated again and again, and so full of moaning that the owner, some distance aivay, reaches for his shotgun and answers the signal of distress. tho same pose by the gray dawn of the morning had not something int erveneO. That something was round a.ml bright, and it came out of a sixth-story window. It descended slowly, the moonlight shimmering on its silvery surface antl making it conspicuous. Soon it could be seen that it was on a string and was being lowered by an elderly woman. When it dangled over the portico there was a sudden liur-r-r-r-r- r-r-r-r-rinpf and the young man and 3'Oung woman parted like an overstrained hawser. The young man seized the round and bright object, which was still ringing, and held its face to the electric light. The hands 011 the alarm clock weredasped at midnight. He raised his hnt to the young woman, murmured two words in a low tone and disappeared. The alarm clock was hoisted up, but the young woman was upstairs before it finally reached the open window. NEWUSE FOR AN ALARM CLOCK. Emplorprl by tho Old Man to Send HI* Daufrutcr'4 ISenn Home. A young man stood in the portico of an apartment house in Washington park, Brooklyn, the other evening-, and on the step above him stood a pretty rfa-1, says the New York Sun. It %vas ate and the street was deserted. Despite the darkness it was apparent to the occasional pas*er-by that the young man had the daintily gloved right hand of thb young woman within his own, Ue his left hand rested over it like a raver to keep it guarded. The young n-nyri was apparently trying to say good night and tho young woman evidently xrald not hear him, for she was bend-, ng her head dose to his. They stood n that attitude for nearly fifteen min- tc» and might have been discovered in FOOD OF THE FUTURE. gome Ways In Which tho Snpply Will B« Affected by Electricity. Edison made his prediction several years ago that animal matter will or may be dispensed with as an article of diet by and by, because the fixation of nitrogen in vegetable growths may be accomplished. Nitrogen is one of the chief elements in animal tissue. If it can be infused into vegetables it wDl give them tho nutritive quality of meat in endless variety. Just while I am writing this article, says a writer in Youth's Companion, the famous chemist Berthelot announces to the French academy that, one hundred years from now, the chief food supply of mankind will consist of nitrogenous vegetables. He comes along N considci'ably behind Edison. It has long been the habit of foreseeing men to predict that some grcut change would occur within twenty-five, fifty or one hundred years, and that the change is apt to. come very much sooner. Ofter/tho prophet of it achieves the result himself. Another element of progress in this direction would be the extraction from wood fiber of sitarch, sugar and protein substances, i. e., those which are regarded as the basis of animal tissues and of some vegetable growths. This work has already been broached. If it could be carried out successful!}' on a large scale men could produce these substances in immense quantities at factories situo.ted in large forest regions. Electric cur-routs and artificial licrht c,uison expects, can oe nppuea xo all edible or fruit-bearing plants, so that apples and oranges, for example, may ultimately be grown a foot in diameter. It would seem, then, that ia time the exact amount of sustenance required by the human race could bo calculated in nlrvonce and supplied with almost mathematical accuracy. If the forests are to be eaten -up by people for the sake of the food contained in them there might bo some- danger of losing our woodlands, the groat safeguard of our water supply-, just as tht-y are now Uircatened by tho rapacity of those who cut them do\vn wholesale for lumber. But the destruction of forest* on this score will be somewhat, counteracted by the nitrojronous vi-gvuible supply; and for builuiugs ami fumitura l^lison pro- post's that artificial wood shall be made, cOD^i.slin;-;'' of coiajin-ssod ohloro-ceUu- loso. and talcs, with a solvent, worked like wood liber when dihintojrnitod un- dor w::tor prossv.ro. If. then, people should restrain their appi-titi; for edible Iniubor, our forests could still bo preserved, especially since it is proposed to cheapen tho use of brick for building by milking bricks of much larger .size, (trying thorn rapidly in groat iron chambers, with a, hu-jo peivenlage of sand in thorn to prevent shrinkage, and then laying thorn in a cement of lime, clay, and nitre., producing immense heat and fusing the wall into one solid mass. AMERICA'S ARMY OF TRAMPS. An Army of 1'ooplo Who Co»t tho Country Million* of Bollard Annually. An interesting lecture on "The Tramp" was given by Prof. J. J. McCook, of Trinity college, the other evening in Parker Memorial hall, Boston. In part he said: "The army of tramps in thi» country numbers about forty-six thousand- mole persons, eleven-twelfths of them under fifty years old, that is, in the prime of life. Five -sixths of them arc able- bodied, three-fifths have trades or occupations requiring skill, :iud more than nine-tenths of them can read and write. Tho political economist marks that this body of adult males beai-s no public burdens, while it costs tho ixmn- try, by the most careful and conservative "computation, from eight to ten million doll.-jrs; not so very much in a country like ours; but it is one-half more than our Indian department costs us, nearly one-half the cost of our navy and more than one-fifth that of our army. These idle men are withdrawn from family tics and have a i::ost demoralizing- effect upon the communities that they infest. They arc a source of tho spread of two contagious diseases, which should be checked a-, fcr as possible by the vegulu.Uo-.is cf Irv.v. Only nineteen of the forty-four olatcs of the union have tramp laws. There is not a tramp law west of the first tier of trans-Mississippi stiites, nor in any southern state errcept North Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi. The penalty for being a tramp ranges from three days in jail to live years in state's prison, and there is an endless variety of fines. Opinions arc divided as to the advantagcousuess of offering lodgings to tramps at the public expense. In many instances it has been" found practically impossible to get any work out rf tramps. As to the remedy •for the tramp evil opinions are di-, vidcd. The labor colony is certainly one of the foremost in the opinion of the authorities of many foreign coun- trios. I would recommend a definite decision whether we shall continue In. our present way. If we do, then, for all public lodgings given the tramp, re- • quire labor in return. Let the differ- • ent counties and towns work together as much as possible. Call upon individual initiative and private bo- nevolence as far as possible." iler OF BOYS Overcoats and Ulsters.
