I Alluding 1 to It as a' 'good-natured jolcci at Kiel," tho London Daily Sows Eerily •correspondent tells tho story thus: | Aa Emporor William was stopping 1 !on hoard his yacht tho other day hq jivas met by a sailor naipcd Jocrpr, who Jiad in his hand a mug of beer which hq •was carrying into tho officers' cabin. , Tho emperor was very much amused 'at tho discomfiture of tho poor fellow, ,ivho did not know at first what to do, 'and who finally saluted tho emperor holding tho licor mug convulsively against the sc;im of his brooches. The icmpcror stopped up to tho sailor and addressed him most amiably: "Sco, Jocrg-, you ha-e done that very stupidly, and I will show you liow one "should bchavo in such a situation. Oo up and irnagi.no that you aTC the om- pcror, and I shall bo tho sailor, Joerff." The poor fellow did not dare ivmon- 'strato. II o had to come on board by tho imperial e' all 5'"" ;l y' iiucl Emperor William mot lilm below in his no\v rolo of n. sailor, with a bcor mug 1 . ". When he saw Joerg, the emperor affected some embarrassment, bub ho 'then sot the glass to his lips, emptied 'it completely, put it down on tho ship's; lodge, and then made his salute. "Do you seo, Jocrg? That is the way it must bo done. Now remember. And now go below and toll them to give you .other glass of boe.r, and one for you, If they question you, just toll that I said so and that they should not bo angry, for tho boor was beautifully fresh and tastod very good." Treasurer Cnse County, Ini TRAINING NATURE. Tho Stylish Velvet Wnl^tn. Tho new and fashionable velvet •waists arc very difficult to mako properly, and should not bo attempted by tho nmateur dressmaker. Velvet is the most difficult of all materials to •work on. It secras to fairly crawl away from one's hold, and it takes a tailor who understands his trade to stitch Velvet seams without unsightly puckering. Tho only way to mako a satisfactory velvet waist n.t homo is to have it of the blousu variety and profusely decorated with jet and ribbons to conceal unskilled workmanship.— -Philadelphia T>r«ss. Consumers of diewinjlofaco wlia paij a little more tfei e ordinag trade tobaccos, will find to rand superior to alloAers How the Japanese Aln,k« Slarveli *or tho Market. At Jamraoh's, in London, the other day, some one asked the preat animal- catcher and importer "if he had run out of mermaids?" "\Vo used to keep them," he answered, "when they fetched four pounds apiece, but now we can't get more than one pound for them. Frank Buckland burst up tho trade when he exposed the method of their manufacture by the Japanese from a fish and a monkey skin el overly united; so we no longer make them a 'leading article,' " ho smilinffly added. "Tho Japanese are remarkably Ingenious." "Notonly that, but they posses • Infinite patience. The telescope fish is a case in point. It is a fish of Immense length, with a double, fanilke tail, and produced by breeding on tho principle of artificial selection. However, they are quite common in Germany now." "And do you know how they pet •white Java sparrows?" "They select a pair of grayish birds and keep them in a whito • cage in a •white room, aad they are attended by a person dressed in white. The mental effect on a series of generations of birds results in completely white birds. They breed tho domestic cock with enormously long tails after the same principle. They first select a bird with a good tail, giving him a voi-y high perch to stand on; then with weights they drag''tho tail downward, carrying 1 on the same system with the finest specimens of his descendants till a tail almost as long as a peacock's is produced at last. And how marvelous they are in tho fertilization of plants! Did you cversneoneof their dwarf trees, perhaps fifty years old, and yet not more than an inch or two high?" THE SUMMIT OF PIKE'S PEAK. Wild aod XiOtiGHOiuo Life of tho Service 33m There. The railway- trains run daily to tho top of Pike's Peak four months in the year—from Juno 1 to the last of September; sometimes a few days longer if there is patronage enough to pay expenses. During the rest of the year, eight long months, the signal-service, men stay there alone—two of them—and see nothing of the rest of.mankdnd •until the snow melts in the spring, although they are in constant communication by telegraph. Sometimes, says a correspondent of the Chicago Record, they come down on snowshoes to repair the wires if the storms tear them apart, and in an emergency they have been as far as Jlanitou or Colorado Springs. The railway £rade has made these journeys much easier than they used to be when there was only the mule trail to follow, but it's a long seven miles sad a very steep climb to return to then- eerie. The snow begins to fall early in October. Last year the ground was covered six feet deep by October 11, and the stone huts on the mountain top are buried under the drifts until the sun begins to melt them the last of April or the first of May. The men have hocks and cards and backgammon, and when they need exercise they can shovel the snow from the doorway. But it is a long and dismal imprisonment, and a countryman who went up on the cars with us expressed the universal opinion when, after hearing the story, he exclaimed: "Gosh! I'd rather spend the winter in a good warm jaiL" There'is a report that the station is to be abandoned this fail, as its utility to the weather bureau is doubtful, arid the observers will not be sorry H it turns out to be true. After th» Cbaplmlncj—A Spirited Cont««t I* PromlMd Over the Ors«olzatlon ut the Next Hou»e—The Prominent A0plr»nt3. Icoprarcirr. 1S05.1 HEX the last c o n p r essional election, with the republicans as victor* in the contest, took place, there sprung up all over the country colored candidates for the chaplaincy of the next bouse. These candidates are making aggressive fights for the place, and the colored ministers everywhere seem anxious to invoke Divine blessings upon the sessions oi the ensuing congress. The contest promises to be more spirited than that over any other question lobe settled in connection with the organisation of the Fifty-fourth congress. The colored republicans claim that they contributed a bi^ share to the result of the election, and as tho spesiker- sliip, the sergeant-at-anns aiid tho clerkship will go to the dominant race, the colored contingent is claiming tho chaplaincy. But as the candidates for this place among the colored republicans seem as numberless as the sands upon the sca'shore, and as it is with some of them a question of: "If I don't you shan't," there is a possibility that this contest will end as many contests for offices have among the colored poll ticians—In a victory for the enemy. Washington alone has four aspirants for tho place, including Rev. E. C. O BEY. ALEXAXDEK CEUITMELL. Benjamin, of Alexandria, Va., who is having his candidacy looked after by tho Alexandria Leader, a weekly paper published by the colored element in that city. Then there are Kev. Dr. Alex Crummell, who recently retired from the ministerial work in Washington after fifty years' service; Rev. Dr. Walter Brooks, the pastor of the Nineteenth Street Baptist church, tho largest colored church here; and Rev. Dr. J. T. Jennifer, the able pastor of the Metropolitan A. M. E. church, the leading colored church of that denomination In tho country. In addition to the Washington con j tingcnt, Rov. Dr. William B. Derricks, of Kew York, secretary of the homo and foreign missionary department, has been favorably spoken of in connection with tho chaplaincy, as well as other able divines from various sections of the country. Tho colored press thoroughout tho country is clamoring for this plage as a recognition of service rendered, and as each paper has its own candidate, there is no solidarity among them, and the colored brethren may lose their selected plum. The position of chaplain pays J900 salary with other perquisites. Since the law passed by the Forty-third congress making the office a salaried one, there have been some spirited contests for tho place. It is the duty of the chaplain to open the sessions of the house with prayer each morning. The prayers of the chaplain are usually of two minutes' duration, and frequently other clergymen are designated by the chaplain of the house to officiate. In the earlier days of the house of representatives, divines from all parts of the country were chosen by a ma- REV. B C. O. jority vote to act as chaplains and they were compensated at the dose of the session by joint resolutions of both houses. In those days there were no struggles for the office and frequently those who were selected declined the honor. For instance, in the Ninth congress, during the Van Buren administration, Rev. William Bentley, of Salem, Mass., Avas chosen by a unanimous vote to be chaplain, but he notified the speaker of his refusal to accept the honor. Rev. TfiBiam Parkinson was then selected, but he also .declined, and Eev. James Laurine was chosen and served during the first session of that congress. The fight for the place in the coming congress promises to be the most interesting in the history of the government. The different colored men who are aspirants to the place have becui their canvass already. The colored divines who have churches in Washington are sure that the place will come to one of them. The men here who have been most favorably mentioned for the place include some of the ablest ministers in the city, and, as for that, in the country. Rev. Dr. Alex. Cmmmeli, the former Rector oi the St. Lukes Protestant Episcopal church, is the acknowledged leader of his i-acc from a theological standpoint. He has been fifty years in the ministerial work, and recently celebrated his golden jubilee. He is one of tho most scholarly ineu of the colored race, and is the author of "America and Africa." Ke has traveled extensively KEV. WALTER n. RBOOKS. in Africa and Europe, and has been the guest of the crowned heads of Europe. Ho numbers among his friends tho most able men of both races, and, although past three score years and ten, he is a forceful and eloquent speaker. He has been a priest in Washington for twenty-six years, and his friends have great confidence that he will be the chaplain of the next house. Rev. Dr. J. T. Jennifer, who is also favorably named, is the pastor of the Metropolitan A. M. E. church, of Washing-ton, and he has filled some of the best positions in the gift of his church. The degree of doctor of divinity wo.s conferred upon him by Wilberfaco university, in 1S75, He was secretary of tho Arkansas conference for eight years, .and vsroto a brief history of African Methodism In Arkansas and in the Indian territory. While at Little Rock he was a member of tho examining committee of the public schools, and succeeded in getting colored teachers appointed in those schools. In 1SSI he was transferred to the New England conference by Biship Turner, and was stationed at the Charles Street church in Boston. He served the Boston church for six years. He is an odd fellow and belongs to tho masonic order. He now officiates as the pastor of the Metropolitan A. M. E. church, of "Washing-ton, the largest congregation in the African M. E. connection. Rev. Walter H. Brooks, D. D., pastor of the Nineteenth Street Baptist church, is'also a candidate for the office. He has tho largest congregation among the colored people in Washington. He has among his audience frequently members of congress, and his sermons arc always of a high order. All of the colored Baptist preachers are for him, and ho will be supported by the members of the Baptist Ministers' union, which is composed of all the preachers of that denomination in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. He enjo3"s the personal acquaintance of HEV. J. T. JE>TfIFER, !>• D. manv members of the next house, and starts out in the contest well backed. Born of slave parents at Richmond, Va.. Rev. Dr. Brooks is a graduate of Lincoln university. He has held several federal positions, and in 1S7G was ordained to the ministerial work, and assigned to the pastorate of the Second Baptist church of Richmond. Va. He was subsequently assigned to mis- sionarv .work at New Orleans, La. His health" .failing, he resigned his work there and accepted the pastorate of the Nineteenth Street Baptist church of Washington. Under his pastorate the church has gained a national reputation. .. The degree of doctor of divinity was conferred upon him by the Roger Williams university and the State university of Kentucky. Rev" R. C. 0. Benjamin, latvyer, editor, clorgnnan, is being named by the Virginia" Leader for the place. The history of Rev. R. C. O. Benjamin is a unique one. He has filled many positions in tho gift of his people and has done yeoman service for his party. He is the" author of several books, has taken part in many legal contests, has written poetrr. edited a newspaper and PECULIAR, in combination, proportion and preparation of ingredient*, Hood's Sarsaparilfa possesses great entire wine.

He is now practicing law in Rhode Island, and is the president of a large association which is interested in the amelioration of the cou''ition of the colored people, llis friends are now urging him for the chaplaincy and claim that if party service commands the place ho ought to have it. There are many other ck'rg-ymen of color throughout the country who are hoping to receive the place, but. as one of then) put it, "it isaquestion whether or not any party has the stamina to elect a colored m:in us chaplain of tho house of representatives." HEAT OF THE HAND. An Instrument Which AccuratolT Indicates Its Intensity. An illustration of the marvelous ac- curacv characterizing tools or instruments of measurement now employed as compared with those of former times is given, namely, that, whereas formerly .001 inch marked on a drawing would have been objected to on the ground that it was difficult or impossible to work so closely to measures as that, at the present time .OOOi) inch is measured in every fine workshop, and dimensions given in hundredths or even thousandths of an inch frequently appear on drawings without objection on the part of the workmen. The instruments of measurement are now made with such a degree of refined accuracy that even the warmth of the hand may expand a rod 12 inches long- so that the amount of expansion can be measured. It has thus become important in fine measurements to be careful that the temperature of the piece to be measured or gauged should have the same temperature as that of the instrument by which the size is determined. By first handling- a rod of the length named and measuring it, particularly if the rod be of brass or copper, and then, after allowing-the rod to cool, handling the gauge until the latter expands, it is found that a discrepancy of fi-om 0.007 inch to 0.01 inch may be sometimes made apparent, due entirely to differences of temperature.
