WHY SHE LEFT. ~ Grand Dnchess of Hesse 'Wearied of Her Husband'* Practical Jokeg. All the way from Marienbad comes at last the story of the real inwardness of that mysterious quarrel between the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Hesse. A few weeks ago it was announced that the grand duchess had suddenly left Darmstadt and had traveled with a single attendant to Bucharest to visit her sister, the crown princess of Botunania. Other paragraphs mention ed that the queen of England and the Duke and Duchess of Coburg did not countenance the Grand Duchess of Hesse iu her quarrel with her husband, but nobody seemed to know or have any idea what the quarrel was about All sorts of stories were soon circulated. One in particular suggested jealousy on the part of the grand duke of a handsome young officer of one of his cavalry regiments. Another person who kuew,;every thing insisted that it was owing to tn° conduct of the grand duke and a lady of opera bouffo fame, and now it turns out that it is all on account of a weakness the grand duke has for playing practical jokes. It must not bo forgotten that he and the grand duchess aro first cousins and both grandchildren of Queen Victoria, They have known each other all their lives and so their marriage was more matter of fact than romantic. Both are still almost in the boy and girl stage, as far as age is concerned, and it is said that the grand duke began his married life by treating his wife more as a male boon companion than as a delicately reared and exceptionally haughty princess, with the imperial blood of Russia as well as tho royal blood of England coursing through her veins. He invented a ghost for her especial benefit at Schloss Heiligcnberg and nearly frightened her out of her wits at a time when she was entitled to his very deepest consideration. On another occasion he placed a nest of mice in her embroidery basket, and he indulged in conspicuous, although, as it proved, entirely harmless, flirtations with tho ladies of tho court. Finally at one particular festivity the grand duke suddenly ordered all the lights to be turned out and then he and a couple of young noblemen who are his closest friends kissed every woman that they could come across in the great chamber. It is even whispered that the grand duchess herself was kissed in tho dark, and she insists that it was not by her husband, or she would have recognized the perfume he is in the habit of wearing on his mustache. The result was the flight next morning of the indignant princess to Koumania. It needed no little persuasion qfc the part of illustrious relatives to bring the yocng couple together again, and it was on the distinct understanding that the matter was finally arranged that in future the duke should refrain fronjicon- necting his practical joking in any way with his wife. The brother of the grand duchess, Prince Alfred of Coburg, seems j to be just as lively a young man as his brother-in-law. He point blank refuses to marry until, as he explains it, he has "enjoyed himself a bit," and at every opportunity he paints the capital of his father's little duchy as brilliant a red as he can possibly manage. As he is an only son it would be rather a dreadful thing if he contracted one of those mes- alliances which seem so popular among young royalties of the present day, and a little army of detectives is constantly employed in watching Prince Alfred and hence the knowledge which exists of all his various escapades. —London Letter in New York Mail and Express. * ~ Bur Shoes JFTtr '•' "-"— Like gloves And they •wear ....

According to Law Nores of England, an English judge in sentencing a prisoner recently said: "Are you atvare that for these repeated breaches of the law it is in my power to sentence yon to a term of penal servitude far exceeding your natural life? And, what is more, I feel verv much inclined to do it." S^ashra^ton. 'Xov.' L—At the close d business Saturday, the last business day of the month, the gold reserve in tie treasury amounted to J153.351.S11. -which is by a few thousand dollars the hisrhest point recorded since November, 1S90. The ueflclt for the morMi was $9,322,653. or J1.01S.725 greater than the deficit for the same month last year. Amnsint Ignorance. The written civil service examinations for policemen in New York have been gDeered at as a part of a visiouar? scheme. The ignorance displayed by some of the unsuccessful applicants for appointment might have hud free course in an official position, however, and to the public loss, had' no such test been used. Extracts from what these applicants for polios service wrote about Abraham Lincoln include some extraordinary statements. One wrote: "He has bin a Presented of New York city." Another declared that in 1SG5 .Lincoln was "nomapitcd in place of Buckhanan whoe's term of office expired in that year." "Mr. Liucclu," according to another applicant, "had many engagements in war and was bound to be victorious, especially at the battle of Gettysburg, when he swept all before him." Of Lincoln's tragic death it was variously said that be was killed "at Chicago 1864,"also that he "was a. c sis- ated iu 1ST7 at foards Theater Boston;" shot in "Booth's theater ia Philadelphia;" "died at his home in Long Branch." The assassin is spoken of as "Garfiekl," "Getoay" and "Decora." Oue candidate said Lincoln "let the Dorkey go fred," another that he "fred all the uegrosiu the world." In general the applicants seem to have agreed, as one wrote, that "we have sertiuly had very fiew like unto Lincoln."—Youth's Companion. How to Live Lou£. Fix deeply in ruiud the grand troth that life power rules the body and that it alone can cure disease. Life power lives on air, water and food only. .All else is hurtfnl. Mske cleanliness your motto and watch against filth in both house and grounds. Few starves for food, but many for air. Breathe deeply a hundred times daily. Wear no tight clothing. Above all, ventilate your sleeping room. Beware of gluttony. If the appetite is dull, eat fruit only or eat nothing. Use no fiery condiments, but live chiefly on natural grains, vegetables and fruits. Never ask your stomach to chew your food—employ your teeth. Adorn your table not only with viands, but with flowers and smiles and kindly words. Deformity is not awkwardness only, but danger. A high chest will give freedom to breathing and digestion and help to cure many diseases. Thick blood causes colds and countless other diseases. Keep the lungs active by deep breathing, the skin by baths and friction, the kidneys by free drafts of warm water, tne bowels by correct eating, and the blood will be pure. Spend part of each day in muscular work, part in study and part in good 4geds to men.7—New York Ledger. The United States Government will net buy baking powders containing alum at any price.

One of the curious Cretan customs •which prevail on the eve of every insurrection is known as adelphopoiesis, or fraternization. One of its immediate re- salts is the cessation of all fends, enmity and rancor. It is carried out as follows: A number of individuals choose a young girl, who must be pretty—no difficult matter in Crete. They inform her parents of their intention, and the needful consent is never withheld. Then a priest is sent for and told to begin the ceremony. HG takes a very long girdle and joins all the men with it in a circle in the center of which the young pirl is placed. Then the clergyman recites a number of prayers and winds up by giving bis benediction to all present. The moment he pronounces the hist aaea the circle and its center stitud in the relation of brothers and sister to each other to all religious and social intents and purposes. Each and every oue of the males is bonud in honor—and a Cretan inows no more sacred obligation—to protect that girl throughout .her life, but none of them can ever take .her for ins wife. She is and remains their sister iu (he eyes of the priest and people to the end of her days, but they must also stand by and succor each other, and if needs be at the cost of life itself.—Fortnightly Review. Burglar* nail Matches. "There is this to be said in favor of the sulphur match," said the retired burglar, "that it is noiseless when struck, but its odor is decidedly against it. Mere than once, when I have struck a sulphur match in the hall, I have heard some light sleeper, when the pungent fumes of the sulphur permeated the atmosphere, turn in bed in the adjacent room. I stuck to sulphur matches for a long time—naturally enough, I suppose—but finally I came to use parlor matches altogether. They are noisy, but odorless, and it may be possible to scratch them when teams are passing, or when the wind is blowing, or there is some other noise abroad. At any rate, I came to prefer, from experience, the noisy, odorless match to the silent sulphur. "Of course the ideal match for anybody in my bnsjneFp would be one that should be both silent and odorless. It is a wonder to me that nobody has invented such a match. It is greatly needed, arv" .-nould say that it would be comparatively easy of invention. Now that I have retired, maybe I will devote myself to the invention of such a match and to do something to promote the interests of an arduous and none too remunerative calling."—New York Sun. Aa Indian Snperstftlon. Editor Anson H. Smith of the Mohave (A.

The scared editor tried to mount his horse, but the squaws insisted on his presence till th« charm-was broken, and it -was not broken until they had discarded. all their nTnfl«tng and gone through a weird dance over the remains of the rattlesnake.
