Tbo latest English novel iat to aspire for a seat in parliamen Is tbe brilliant wrher of that exlrava gant and famous romance "She." The press reports state that B Rider Haggard has been selected by large meeting of land owners am farmers to nontest tbe East Norfol constituency for the Conservative? e the next general -election. Hagtfar claimed to belong to tho party of bus baodry. Ho says that he had bee: brought up in Conservative principle and that he had not seen the sllghtes reason for changing- his opinions dur ing- rococt years. THE New England States are making a move toward catching up with tb tlmea. An exchange says: "Nex month Rhode Island will vote on tbe propriety of the Legislature submitting tothepeopleforbiennlal elections. Al ready this state has adopted plurality elections and If It also indorses bien nlal election it will leavo Matsachus etts as the only State in the Union holding annual Gubernatorial elec tlons. The Connecticut Legislatur is likewise considering the pro prioty of submitting to a popular vot> amendments to its Constitution authorizing plurality elections and making the representation In the Legislature more equitable. All these oonstUutional changes are necessary to bring tbeso States up to the advanced political thought of the day.

THE victory or the Japs over tbe Chinese has been one of the most remarkable in the recent history of tho world. It is astounding consider Ing tbo relative population of the two countries and the fact that the fighting was done in Chinese waters and on the soil of that empire. The superior education, organization and bravery of the Japs caused the utter riot of tbe hordes of Chinese who were scattered as chaff before tho wind. China's humiliation is Indeed great. ^ HOWEVER u may prove In the con test for the Presidency there is EO question that Thos. B, Reed will be the speaker ;;of the next House of Representatives. The candidate who would oppose him could not muster a corporal's guard to his support. Reed proved one of tbe most masterly men who ever occupied the speaker's chair which has been graced with the presence of Henry Clay, James G Blaino and other great men who have aided laigely in making the history of the Nation.

Erb. at Heidelberg, jrave an address sonic time ago which demand: more than .1 passing notice. • i'rof. Erl t:ikes it for granted tiuit lln:re is; m:irki:J increase, of functional nervou cli:-.or<lei-s, and ho believes thut the events of the present century linv naturally led to this iv-juH. Tb niuotoi.'nth oentuiy, says the Britisl Medical Journal, began in disord and commotion. France; bad pnssi through a bloody revolution \vbiel was to be followed by the excite incnt and exhaustion of Napolconi adventxires; restlessness, political anc social, was followed bv a period oi' calm, but, with tho advanc ing- years, labor-saving inventions rapidly replaced man and increased wealth, and rendered communication easy—as our author says, time ant space seemed to bo annihilated. In science, in literature, all were develop ing, and with it there appeared in capacity for restful pleasure; rushing from change to change seeming to be tbe only alternative work. With over work- there was overcrowding and ovorstiruulation; alcohol and tobacco were used in greatly increased quantities; railway traveling and its nerve- jarring motion still further tended to nervousness; and, so Prof. Erb o vinccs himself, with all this there bas been a clear loss of nerve tone to the whole of the highly civilized nations. Nothing could have been more brilliantly put than th»; contrast between tbe normal reaction to work and worry and tbe neurasthenic and abnormal reaction to the same conditions, and it will be for us to see whether we agree with all that Prof. Erb says. According to him, all this rapid, restless movement has left an irritable and slow-recovering nervous system, which must bo considered as neurasthenic. The .essentials of this disorder, which has not been recognized twenty years, are increased sensitiveness, with weakness, 'weariness, lack of power of endurance, and defective recuperative power,- This disorder is a rcfineinentof hysteria and hypocbondriasis, and it is tho outcome of the conditions of life, lie thinks it ought to be found in all periods of ex- Icitemcnt and of luxury, but owns that /there is no evidence of its existence in Greece or in Rome. Tbo disorder is to be recognized and to be met by chiftiging conditions, and nerve hygiene is to be considered as much as sanitation. From school days to pvof essional life tbe human being is to be tended and brought up, his mental, moral arid physical education is to be regulated, his holidays are to bo methodized, his business is to be conducted in healthy surroundings and his cities are to be made healthy and beautiful, with fresh air and beautiful surrounding's. Thus, the professor is a preacher of hygienic socialism. As wo said before, we. have been charmed with the address, but not convinced. The old question reappears in another form. Is increased insanity and nervous disorder in necessary correlation to developing complexity of society? It must be recognized that the more complex the rules of society the more frequent will be breaches of these rules; at all events, for a time. In developing, civilization, too, wo have a very perplexing factor added in the survival and the propagation of tbe nonfittest, and tbis doubtless adds to tbe increasing number of tbe nervous. We are inclined to believe that there is some slight in- :reaso of nervousness,.but that there is a much greater knowledge of the subject, and with knowledge comes subdivision and classification. We remember the time when hysteria, in its present connotation, was looked upon is a new and increasing 1 danger to society. This disorder is now recognized as no longer a defect of will for which ;he patient is to be blamed, and has jeen subdivided. Hypochondriasis in the same war is no longer considered to bo a maladie imaginairc, but is recognized as having some organic basis, and with, tbis progress the so-called 'unetional disorders have to be studied mart and are now placed under tbo iead neurasthenia. We dp not believe more women, at all events in England, lave "nerves" now than they had fifty years ago. With tbe increase of excitement there has been a still greater endeney to more freedom of exercise, more freedom from conventionalism incl much healthier home surroundings.

"I have never desired," said he. "to associate with any man, white or black, unless mv company is acceptable. However, if "a white-man is well educated, clever 'respectable I would just as soon 5C caught in his company as in the com>any of a negro," While speaking on miscegenation another time bis eyeglasses bothered him by sliding 1 from lis nose. "I wish," he broke out, "^v.e ould get up some.sort of an alloy .for tbe nejrro which would assure; him a CHINESE DINING-OUT GIRL.S. They Arc Employe:! to Amuse Men »t When, for instance, a Chinese gentleman intends giving a dinner to three friends be will arrange for it to be provided on a flower boat at a certain hour, and also for the company of eight dining-oat girls—two for each gentleman, says a. writer in Ontui-y. I call them dining-out jrirls. as it best describes to me their calling. They will come prettily dressed, their hah- done up in most wonderful shapes and brushed over with a sort of varnish which innkus it appear like a fantastic heail-dre.js. carvoil in ebony. They will ornament this structure with bright ll:)wors, Miou.;':! the wreaths will be as .stiiVus llu-ii- hair: or they will souie- tiiat.-s add ja.dc, gold or fealher-inhid orrui-.iiL-nts. Their fuws will be painted in white and pink—vory artistically painted, smooth ami soft-looking, delicately traced; sharp black crescents will mark their eyebrows. Dainty, demure dolls they will ;:pppur and pretty to look upon; but seemingly one toueh would destroy their artistic effects, a.sa rough hand the radiance of a butterfly's wing. Two of these youn.? ladies will attend to each gentleman, sitting slightly back from the table at each side of the entertained. They will (ill his liquor cups, sip from them and pass them on; pick out dainty pieces of "chow" (food) with chopsticks and hand them to him; crack jokes, Gil and light his pips and all the while chat gayly and cat dried watermelon seeds. That is all I ever saw them cat. Behind each group of three a solemn-looking coolie, or waiter, will stand to fan them ali tho while. Other waiters bring- in food, wine and ten,, change the dishes and attend to their wants. The meal will last for a long time. Eventually all will rise and retire to an outer room furnished with broad couches covered with matting. Opium pipes will be there for those who care for them and tobacco and cigars in plenty. The girls will sic on the couches, laugh, fill the pipes and still eat watermelon seeds, while the fi-entlcjr.cn will recline at their ease, enjoying their society. SOME POINTED QUESTIONS. They Wore Put to American Travelers by tlio Viceroy of Chlun, When Mr. Allen and Mr. Sachtleben reached Tien Tsin, after their long bicycle ride from Constantinople across Asia, they had a protracted interview with the viceroy—Li Jiang- Chang—tho man whom Gen. Grant included among the three greatest statesmen of his day. He asked tbe young American travelers a multitude of questions about tbe countries they had ridden through, and at last came down to personalities. The following were a few of bis Inquiries: "About bow much did the trip cost you?" "Do you expect to get back all or more than you spent'?'.' "Will you write a book?" "Did you find any gold or silver do- posits on your route?" ' "Do you like the Chinese diet?" "How much did one meal cost you?" "How old are yotiV" "Arc you married?" "What is the trade or profession of your parents?" "Do they own much land?" "Are you democrats or republicans?" "Will you run for any political office in America?" "Do you expect ever to get into congress?" "Do you have to buy offices in America?" The young men hesitated a little over this last question, and the viceroy was good enoug-h to say that they would become so well known as the result of their long journey that they might get into office without paying for it. "You arc both young," he added, "and may hope for anything." Spring Suitings, Spring Overcoatings, Spring Trouseringsgf Novelties all in waiting for you to come and select them.

Those pretty little seaweed flowers that unfold from seeming- y dry sticks when dropped into a finger bowl with water are imported into this country in gray paper envelopes, sometimes lablcd thus: "Water flowers for the amusement after dinner." To believe a French writer, there are no fewer than four thousand women caught every year in stealing during their shonpinj* expeditions, a habit euphoniously styled kleptomania. The number of titled ladies seized with the | strange malady while examining the j fashions of Paris, be tells us. is almost j incredible. Among the most recent :ulprits were a Russian princess, a French countess, an English duchess the daughter of a reigning .sovereign. As a rule, these more distinguished offenders are let off on the payment of a round sum for tbe relief | 31 the poor, and when tbe shoplifter 1 ;s known to be rich the sum ex-acted . rises to as much as ton thousand francs.

Probably no Indian who ever visi'iofl Washington to counsel with the great father returned to his tribe better sat- Ced with the results of his trip than the Sisseton Sioux Two Star, says the St. Paul Pioneer Press, He not only accomplished the object of his mission, but he was entertained in a style that falls to the lot of few of the nation's wards. Agent Keller was with him, as well as the interpreter, .Toe Brown. The latter, by the way, is a somewhat notable fig-urc, ITe is a son of that Moj. Brown who commanded the troops at the battle of Birch Cooloy during the Sioux outbreak. He has lived all his life among 1 these Indians and now keeps a large store on the reservation. Two Star was sent to Washington by his tribe to ask the immediate payment to them of ?19P,000 of their principal now in the custody of the United States. This sum now amounts to 51,609,000. The Indians arc in very destitute circumstances this winter, owing to an almost complete failure of their crops, and the interest due them is not sufficient to carry them over until next fall. The impairment of the principal is a matter which by law rests entirely witli the president. In this case he has promised to follow the recommendation of the commissioner of Indian affairs, which is to the effect that the grant bo made. It is a somewhat singular fact that, although Two Star was one of Gen. Silbey's scouts and lias always associated with the whites upon terms oil the friendliest intimacy, he cannot speak a word of English. Ills enjoyment of the white man's amusement is, however, none the less keen. Senator Kyle's clerk, Duncan McFarland, took him to sec the kinetoscope. As ho looked in upon the picture in motion a look of amazement, not unmixed with a degree of consternation, crept over his face. He stepped back and looked around, above and below the case to find out what caused the exhibition- It was some time before he could be persuaded to again apply tlie eye to the aperture, and when the machine stopped with a click the noble red man jumped as Lf ho had heard the warwhoop of some of his tribal enemies. He was equally amazed, but none the less pleased, with the phonograph, and insisted upon having a selection by the Marine band repeated. He was taken to an amateur athletic and gymnasium performance at the Columbia Athletic club, and witnessed the exhibition of skill and endurance with a delight that was almost childlike. Just before his departure for the west. Two Star said to a correspondent: "I was here in ISO", but no one- paid any attention to me then. I think Washington is a much nicer place now. It will be no use for me to tell my people about tho tilings I have seen and heard (referring to the kinetoscope and phonograph), .Cor no one would believe me. They would say I was not speaking the truth." that tne siftiijcn vessel nnas its way quickly to the foundations of the sea. In a few hours at most it readies ita «verlnsling- grave ;vud is ready for the swift destruction which awaits its form. At the stroke of its fall it must in part sink iuio the ooze, which everywhere is deep. Quickly the creatures of the sea, who by long existence in JJclds where food is scanty have Icarnc4 to avail themselves of every chance of subsistence, seize upon all the organic matter which fortune has sent to them. Even the masts and the other woodwork will shortly be honeycombed by living species and weighed down by encrusting forms. Thus before long the masts will fall and the decks will share in the ruin. If the reader could traverse tho field tvherennto cu.me the shot-riddled ships of Trafalgar, he would probably, says a writer in Youth's Companion, be surprised at the slight effect they would make on the landscape. Each wreck would most likelj 7 appear as a low mound of debris, in which, it would bo difiicult to trace the semblance of the stout craft which waged the greatest sea-fight of all time. Ships of European people have been for centuries finding their way to the floors of the ocean. Probably over a hundred thousand vessels have met thig fate since the time when our race began to find its way around the world. Yet by far the greater part of these have fallen upon the shallows near the shore, where the swift currents and rapidly moving debris are likely to aid in their destruction and buriaJ. How swiftly they disappear in tin conditions may be judged by the cxpcrj- cnce of a diver who has sought for sunken treasures. Almost invariably, after a hundred years or so has passed, they find that the craft is quite lost to sight. Far more money has been spent in'these explorations than has been won from them. Curiously enough, the most permanent records of man's empire of the seas are being written in the ashes from the ; coal-fed fires of tho steamships. This waste is in its nature indestructible, and the mass of material contributed in any one year to the ocean floors is to be reckoned by the million tons. In time all the great ship routes will be paved. with this debris, which will be'built into the rocks, to remain as the- most enduring physical monument of man's, ivray upon this sphere.

In looking nt the oceans, the tnind almost instinctively turns to the fate of the ships which fo-ond their resting place v.pon their floors. If tjie reader were appointed to inspect the bottom of the drained sea, he ivonld be sure to look at once for some remnants of his kind, overwhelmed by storm, or battle.
