CARI-B-STEH the traveler and journalist, last week delivered an interesting series of lectures in In dlanapolls.- Friday night his subject waa "Korea" and be gave much in formation about thia laud that has receutly been brought into prominence by reason of the Oriental War. S-jOul, the capital of the nation, is about as large as Pittbburg, and Is built principally of one-story build. Ings, all surrounded by a wall twenty five feet high. The flash of dogs Is eaten by the poor. Wives are purchased for about $10, and never see the man chosen for them until after the marrlaeo cfremony is performed WILLIAM C. WHITNEY, ex.Secretary of tho Navy, has been in the background for some ilma and the politicians have been content to allow him to remain there. Tne social goenlps, however, have taken him in hand, and bis namo again appears in print although not in apolitical connection. Tae society writers s<.y that the ex- Secretary will again embark on the too. of matrimony, and namo Mies Joanna Davidge of New York as the lady of hid cbolce. STATISTICS just published by tho Department of Agriculture show that the valuo of iho sbeep in this country IB less by $-19 -135,503 than thr.e years ago. On Jan. 1 1892 sheep were worth $2.60 on an average and as they numbered ii 938 365 the total value was *UG.121.270. On Jan. 1st last the total cumber was 42294006 and tho value $66685.767. The sheep owners of the country are nearly fifty million dollars poorer on account of Democratic tariff tinkering. Tan Mooro bill re enacts the old police regulations and defines tbe power of councils. It was not tbe Intention of the bill as a whole to repeal tbe metrnpolitan police system but opinions differ as to the result of thia later enactment. Judge Hawkins of Indianapolis holds that the metropolitan system Is not changed by the recent enactment and as he is an able lawyer bU opinion is probably correct. TOE legislature did not please everybody. When It tocomes muklng'laws to gover tbe people, no legislature can, and the acts must be viewed from a business standpoint. If a ' legislative body Is conservative, progrestive, just and economical It has served the people well even though it inaugurates no great reform. SPAIN would have oeen much better 0 fftoday If ebe had accepted the offer of $ 100,000,000 made by the United Slates, under Folk's administration for Cuba.

Kind Bub Climb* to the Jtoof of uu IiiKiimtloii of Mercy, nnd Hun a Great Tim* Wl.h Ihe Little One.s. Special Correspondence. NjcTV YOHKiliircll 1-i, 1S90. Most people are getting resady to be married, but we are not. We are cutting out paoer dolls. And when I say ••we," I mean my H't'e J« 1W friend Isadore and your humble servant. When I was a very little girl' paper dollo were esteemed of sonae worth, but not very much. Now they have reached a stage of magnificence that makes them longed for by- all small people, who have a delightful time playing tbat these beautlfulily-tlnted, well-dressed ladies and gentlemen are '•really and rlghty." You can buys paper coach with a gentleman correctly dressed driving a fou::-in-hand, with the Princess of Wales sitting beside him, and various other members of the royal family enjoying themselves getting the fresh air, in their best bibs and tuckers. You can also, if you have money enough, buy a dinner table, properly sprea'd, with a lot of howling swells-sitting around it, and longiiig for the luscious paper dishes. We weren't cutting out that kind. It takes too mu2h money to permit tte snipping into them. But we were having a beautiful time cutting out Individual dolls; puUing their clotbeson them, and seeing that their b*ck hair was properly twisted up. Once Isadore, who was doing tbe pasting, got Poon-bontas's long flowing, black locks on Queen Victoria; but that wasn't as bad a break as putting Buffalo Bill's head on the Daisy Queen o:f Spain's shoulders. However, those little mistakes were rectified, and the large family of paper dolls was-'ready., to start out. CRIPPLED COILDREN'S PLAYGROUND. Where were they going? Uptown on a corner almost In the hee.rt of the city, near where the Eoley trains come io, is a building that was put up by kind hearted people that it might be a home and a resting place for the little children who couldn't run and jump and play Use those of yoars whum you love so dearly. Although ihe elevated road is quite near it, and the great atation just on tbe other side, these little people have a fine garden. It is wav up on top of the house al'. closed in by glass, so that in winter time there is enough warmth, and in the summer the gim«8 top can be rolled back and the rays of sunshine fall on the children, warm and golden. AH the little folks who are not in bed are helptd to the elevator, or are rolled there in CQalrs, and they .go up in squads to the big play ground.....-Toere they have hammocks and swings, and^ i uthey are boys, they play bill, and if they are girls they have whole families o' dolls who have a good time jyith their little mothers. It is true no boy runs after the ball, but It U also true that, among all thess little people there is not a single crutch. The good doctor thinks that If they can, walk at all, they can do it slowly and without the crutch that would distort their •boulders, These are tbe people for whom I*adore and I have been working. We had paper dolls by the hundreds, and, In addition, we had a wonderful book that was to belong to all the children for all time; but for special , limes it was to ba the property of that one who was most unhappy Toe leaves of this book were In color [Ike unto tbe rainbow. The edges were pinlred in tiny points, end on every page were pasted pictures of all sorts and conditions of people, and dogs and cats and ships, and-""BverT- tblngtb-t could possibly Interest a child. Oae psge was great It hud a fierce looking bull.dog In the centre, while up in one corner, so placed that they turned up their aristocratic noses atacberub pup in anotner: corner, was a group of fox terriers. ' Tbetp, too, there »ere pages rich with'flow- ers, ard we believe ifoat unless a- boy was in great pain, he would always find something to amuse bim In that book. .••'••" WHEN "WE GOT UP THERE there WM much merriment |?oing on. Tne little people were havinii? a .treat of Iced crt-am and cake. Th)» .pjeai- ure wat given to them by a lady Jn the West, a ' ' ' '-'^ ' -'-^ ::: - :i i '*-' - r ~-' nary and who«« . wlio.mai|iini 5 h!8r ' ( 'fTn>bf. servant destroyed her letter, and so her address was lost, Her money furnished iced crram for all these little people, and another kind woman gave the cake, so tbat they really bad a party. When one is young, and sick and feverish, there is nothing that tastes quite so good aa iced cream. And when one is young aud feels well, except for that bad leg, why then there Is nothing quite so good as iced cream. After tbe party came the paper dolls. The smallest girl of all had first choice. SHE TOOK QUKEN VICTORIA, a baby in long clothes, and Mr. Cleveland riding a pony. As she was only four years old, her mistake In choosing Mr. Cleveland must be set down to her youth. Timmy bad the next choice. Timmy is a dear friend of mine, who, according to actual time, has been on this earth nine years, counted by pain he has lived a hundred. Always he Is there in his little bed, and tbe pain is very, very bad when Timmy can't smile. Tho other day a lady gave him a pot of primroses. Two of the buds base bios- somed, and Timmy felt himself a rich man today, because, though he couldn't go up on the roof, his flower went Hp. acd all the children looked at it. They knew what were the old flowers and what were the new, and they credited tbe birth of the new entirely to Tlmmy's influence. Timmy chose lady dolls. Hehaen't a very good opinion of men. He wouldn't DO where he now is if his father hadn't kicked him downstairs once whe'n he was too drunk to know whether a baby of three or a piece of wood were not the same. Timmy thinks that moft men get drunk and beat their wives aud are rough with their children because that's ihe style of men he met in the tenement he used to live in. However, he has GKEAT ADMIRATION FOR LADIES, So he chose "Toe Queen of tbe Incas," who bad real spangles on her dress, and who was immediately spoken of as "do Queen of deDinkies." Then he took Mrs. Langtry and a bride, and a distinguished looking lady, riding ts, white horse in a lii'ht- blue habit, described as "The Empress of the E'rench:" If ever tbe Empress of the French sat on a horse in that way, her neck would have been broken at his first step Timmy hadn't been well all day. aud so I stayed with him and let Isaaore teed to the distribution of the dolls. The fox-terrier who had come with me to pay him a visit, laid at the foot of tbe bed, and every now and tben, gave forth an unhappy little whine But Timmy looked at his llowers, stood the dolls up In a row, and was very quiet and happy. After a while, one of. the nurses asked me to come out of the room, and then she looked in my face, and we eald nothing, but each understood. And eoon- all the little children were taken to the extreme end of the room, and those who were not 'in bed were kept up in the play room. All but Maggie. Maggie sits in a chair all the time, and Is as merry as a grig, day ID and day out. A hard-hearted mother brought her there, and left her when she was nothing but a baby, but sha has become tbe child of the bouse, and now, at nineteen, she whirls around in her chair and gives any medicine that Is necessary, and Is a medium for aeklng favors, and doesn't hesitate to promise that the day will come when all pain will stop to those « ho are suffering • So there was just Maggie and the nurse that Timmy always called "Tbe pretty lady," because her eyea are full of tenderness, and her face is LjKE TOE BIESSED MOTHER'S, and tbe doctor and the little dog and me. Holding my hand, be asked, half dreamt!/, "Will they all be well some da}? 1 ' And I only could nnd, "Yes." Tben ho said tbat be liked the paper doils out eomeho* they all feemed to be talking a»ay from him. Tbe nurse asked bim if be had any psin. H- said be didn't think he had, but some'now it seemed to him as If, where there used to be three prim, roses, a great maoy more had come, and tbat somebody war standing near him. holding just such a bunch of lilies as he saw last Easter. Perhaps it was the picture at the foot of bis bad tbat made bim think thin, but be reached out tbe thin, pile lUtle hands to his un- 'seen visitor.' and we all kept quiet And then.

GRACE, will be placed on sale At 8 O'clock. Remembe r the Date and Place. 426 BROADWAY, the words were strange, Timmy said -.'Amen" at tbe right time, and while we looked, tbe little dog gave a long, loud, plaintive moan, and we knew tbat nevermore would we hear Tim^ my speak. And there were the flowers and the paper dolls, and the sot tmiles on their faces never changed. CHILDREN IN DEATH'S PRESENCE, This afternoon the flowers stood beside the little coffin tbat held happy Timmy, and around which were grouped all - his litilo friends in the hospital. Somebody said a kindly prayer and then, all singing altogether, the children made beautiful tbat always beautiful hymn, "Abide With Me." After that they all looked at Timmy for tho last time, And to me it seemed as If there need be said no pitying word for him, but, oh! so'many for them. How can yyu, you who have happy, healthy children, refrain from giving of your plenty, just a little to those whose life js made up of suffering. It moans so much to them—tbe something from the outside world. U may bs only a great golden orange. It may be a basket of sweets. It may be a great gorgeous French doll tbat is to belong to all in turn.-or it msy be a lot of paper dolle to be divided among them. Lot it be something. Nobody ib so poor that she, if she is a mother, cannot give something to those little people wbose life is so sad. AND THEN THEY ARK SO BRAVE. They laugh as merrily when they are playing as if pain were unknown It Is quite possible tbat last night was one Of suffering, but today the pain was gone. Somebody has been good and kind. Some pleasure Is 10 the fore and It brings real joy. Such a little gives so much joy! Sometimes His only a great red rose, but It will be talked about, smelt, looked at until, alas! It has lived its life and given all the pleasure it aan. Some day I hope some kind-hearted woman will give to eaob a tiny puree with a beautiful bright 10-cent piece In it. Do you know what that means to a little child, sick or well? It means an Immense amount of pleasure, and, of course, the money can be spent when It Is wished, because there U always somebody who gets outside. Why a purse that clicks and snaps will be opened and shut a hundred times a day from tbe pure enjoyment tbat comes from having money of one's own. BAB'S APPEAL FOR HELP. Today Timm^ is sleeping where 1- Is quiet, and where there are mao> beautiful flowers. The little pot of primroses belongs to Maggie, who treasures them and cares for ibem in memory of bim. Tbe paper dolls are grinning just as cheerfully in the handsof a lit'le girl, who is posicg them for a wedding, and, horror of horrors! has united tbe Empress of the French to Mr. Cleveland on a pony, and Pocabontas, woe Is me! to Henry Irving. Such are the msicb- milting tendencies of today? Won't you _tblnk of these little people, wherever they may be? And won't you, for your o*n sake for tnelr sake and for God 1 * sake, give them »ome- thing out of your plentj? It will come back to you a hundred fold. It Is ihe least of these you must be generous and then your cup of gladness will be full, and,running over.

The predecessor of the "biff tbe Zoo lived thirty-six yoars in. Ke- p-enfs park, an n^e which is very seldom reached by any creature in captivity, c.xeept the h:ilf-domc.sticated elcphrmt and the Indian rhinoceros. Size and longevity seem closely related in the conditions of animal existence; and the polar bear is far the largest of the frrcut carnivora, and by consequence lives to a much greater age* than the liou or tijj-cr. When iu its I prime Ursn major of this Zoo must have I weighed at least three-quarters of a I ton. and itscompanion. though female, I grows at a rate which promises bcforol lon£ to bring- it to nearly the same I bulk. This is about the weight of a.I large English dray horse. Possibly! the regular food supply and warm I climate which the captive bears en joy J mav increase their size;but Capt. Lyottl mentions tbat he shot one which.! measured eight feet seven inches in I length and weighed no Jess than sixteenl hundred and fifty pounds. I The body of this bear, unlike the! felidsc. is rounded like a, barrel, and I though its limbs arc long and it standsj high, its bulk is more in proportion ' -that of the ox or the elephant than tol the more slender forms of the true car-l nivora. As the average weijrht of al large lion is five hundred pounds, and! of a large tijrer four hundred and fifty| pounds, the offensive power of the polar bear must greatly exceed that of either, if its muscular strength and ae-| tivityare in proportion to its size. IB some respects its powers of movement exceed those of the {front cats. It can| maintain a g-allop at a pace equal 1 that of a fast horse, leap wide gnlf with ease, swim fast enough to catch : salmon and (live like a seal or an ottcr.J The old bear at the Zoo had for some time rarely entered its bath; but_. aquatic feats of its younger parti thus described in a chapter on don Bears," in C. J. Cornish's recently published work, "Life at the Zoo:'' "Fresh water is let into their bath tw<j or three times a week, and as soon the bottom is covered the younger 1 rolls in and 'cuts capers,' to use keeper's phrase. She always prefe to take a 'header,' but not after tl orthodox fashion; for when her nc touches the bottom she turns a somer sault slowly, and then, floats the surface" on her back. Thet she climbs out, shakes hersel and gallops round the edge of tbJ bath. In spite of her bulk, the bear ij as active as a cat and can fro at sj round the circle without pausing missing- a step. Iler next object is i find something to play with in water. Anything-will do; but if noth] icg else is handy she usually produc a nasty bit of stale fish, which s seems to keep hidden in some handij place, and dives for it, coming- np the surface with, tbe fish balanced < her nose, or on all four paws. If tb water is still running- in, she will lil under the spout and let it run thrcrajrn her jaws. But the most amusing garni which the writer lias seen -was playei with a L-ir-je round stone. After knoch ing- it into the water and jumping in fish it out. she took it iu her raout and tried to push it into the hole fron •which the water was still running This was a difficult matter, for thl stone was as lar.re as a'tcnnis ball, i the pipe was not much wider. Sever times the stone dropped out. tlioagl the bear held it delicately between he lips, and tried to push it in with .he ton<rue. At last she sat tip, and holq ing the stone between her put it np to the pipe, and pi with her nose. This was a. . triumph, and she retired and con ten plated the result with much satisfa. tion. Later, being apparently tired i this achievement, she threw water! It with her head, and failing to it down, picked it out with her claw and went on divinar f° r it in, the baC" —London Spectator. —The tnbipora, or .organ-pipe'-.a consists of a large mass of..calc tubes, each tie home, ot » lirinjr.;.e
