PUKING Bishop Warren's attendance at tho conference here he told a story of one of his experiences wkloh the Journal used. Some of the newspapers have assumed that the Inoiden referred to one church and eome to another, and have commented upon it in that way. The story was told with out reference to any conference or church, and was so used by the Jour ; nal. There Is no authority for any one to designate the church It applied to and all such reference is pure guess work. IIIE recent decision of ibe United Statoa Supreme Court as to Income tax law is regarded as not sustaining any part of the act and leaves the constitutionality of the law as a whole undecided, Senator Gray of Delaware, one of tho ablest lawyers In -the Senate, sums up tho decision as follows: "The court reverses the decree of the court below, declares two of the salient features of the law unconstltu. tlonal and declines to commit itself as to the other points Involved." This specimen of Democratic legislation Is thus left in very indefinite shape. IN previous issues of the Journal it has been shown that the Gorman tariff la* has been most injurious to farm, era, by its disastrous effect on the prices of wheat, corn, wool, hogs, etc. That the prices for tobacco have also been affected is shown by the following from tbe American Economist: The growers of tobacco and tho tubaooo trade generally are Interested In watching the effect of the Gorman Tariff upon tbe Imports of tobacco. This we give, by request, for five months of the new Tariff period, ending January 31. 1895, in compar.

Tbe Island Is the Woaltniest of Spanish Possessions. Revolution! Have Keen Frequent for Mom Tliun Sevinty-Five Yc»r«—Havana, the Capital, If n Great unU 1'rosporous City. Cuba is about as large as England proper, without the principality of Wales. Its greatest length is 800 miles, its narrowest part 20 miles, audits average width ^bout 40 miles. The circumference of the island is 2,000 miles, and is supposed to contain 35.000 square miles. The nearest port to this continent is Matanzas, lying due south from Cape Sable, Fla,., a distance of only 130 miles. Havana is CO miles west of Matanzas. The climate is variable, but snow never falls in Cuba. In the cities and near the swamps yellow fever prevails from the middle of June to the last o> October, but in-the interior of the island it is no more unhealthy than in American cities in summer. The average tcm- teratnre at Havana is 77, the maximum 89 and the minimum 50 degrees. The population of the island is about 2,000,000, of which 300,000 are Spaniards. Havana, the eighth commercial capital of the world, with a population of 400,000, has a harbor populous with the ships of all nations. Moro Castle, with its big guns peering out through the yellow stones and its sentinel lighthouse, stands guard over the narrow entrance, with the battery of La Punta opposite. The citv is rich in public buildings, cathedrals and venerable churches. Tho dwelling-houses are universally so constructed as to form an open square in the center, which constitutes the only yard or court attached. Tho house is divided into a living-room, a storeroom, chambers and stable— these all upon on e floor—w bile the family vehicle blocks up in part the only entrance, which is used in common by horses, ladies, slaves and gentleman callers. This rooms are lofty and the floors stuccoed or tiled in marble, while the walls and ceilings are frequently ornamented in fresco. The most striking peculiarity of the town-house in Cuba is tho precaution taken to render it safe against sudden attack, each ac- crssible window being secured with stout iron bars from top to bottom, while bullet-proof doors bar tho en- 1 ortne Kilrei tdwer or 'any other of the old exhibition buildings, with the notable exception, however, of the Troeadero. Everything will be done ; on an immense scale and if the ideas i which at present prevail among ! its promoters are carried • out the ] exhibition of 1000 will gradually absorb the whole of Paris, and even far off Vincennes will be utilized for all that concerns athletic sports, interna- tional'matches and Olympian games. As is natural, a great point will bo made of anything relating to the past century, and the exhibition will be in moro senses than one a centennial exposition. The army and navy sections will be of , very great interest. ; After a period of four months those ' who had entered their names as being wDling and anxious to enter the exhi~ bition plan competition were told to send in their schemes. No one competitor fulfilled all. the conditions, so something will be taken from each of the eighteen best sets of plans and suggestions sent in. The Seine will play a prominent role in the esthetic side of the exhibition, for it is proposed to reconstitute on its left bank a portion of the ' Grand canal, Venice.

The Cuban ladies rarely stir abroad'except in a vehicle, and in con-, sequence the feet of the senoritas are marvels of smalluess and delicacy. Their voices are sweet and low, while the subdued tone of their complexion is relieved by the arch vivacity of night- black eyes. Cut tho domestic alllcc- tions are not cultivated—in fact, home to the average Cuban is only a place to sleep. ! The first attempt of the Cubans to throw off the Spanish yoke was made in 1S28, when Simon Bolivar offered to aid the disaffected party by putting an invading; force into the island. Another v.-ns made in 1820, imd a third in. 1S2S. Under the leadership of Gen. Lopez a conspiracy was developed at Clonfucfros and Trinidad in 1S4S to establish Cuban independence, but tho natives were timid, and after two years of desultory fighting- Lopez was overpowered and executed ia 1SDO. The island was in a chronic state of civil war from 1808 to 1870, a fact which so attracted the attention of President Grant that, in the interest of American and Cuban commerce, he proposed annexation. These outbreaks were led by Cespedes, an able lawyer • and wealthy planter of Bayamo, and during 1 the eight years of hostilities Spain actually sent to Cuba 145,000' enlisted men, of whom only a few hundred ever returned. Since 1S70 roving bands at insurgents have caused the authorities more'or Jess serious trouble, and the mountains and half-inaccessible forests of the eastern shore still serve to secrete many armed and disaffected people. In the revolutions of 1S7S the commanders of tho little guard costa gunboats, probably in utter ignorance of international law, interfered with American shipping, and the Spanish government had to pay for their rashness. THE PARIS EXHIBITION OF 1900. Evcrj-thlDE- TTUl Be Done Cpon *. Grand and Immense Scale. In the Revue des Deux Mondes is a preliminary survey of the forthcoming cosmopolitan exhibition of 1000. It will be held on the Champs da Mars, a great open space on the southwest extremity of Paris, already consecrated by the presence of many similar fairs. The French government sent out their first announcement of the scheme on July IS, 1S02, and last summer the chamber of deputies voted a prelim- inarv grant for the expenses connected with a "best plan competition." The Champs Elvsees will be considered part of the exhibition, and there is even a talk "of including the immense square in front of the Invalides. Indeed, the scheme of construction provides for a broad bridge which will join in permanent fashion the Champs Elysees to the quay which runs on the river side of Napoleon's historic resting- place. Architects, artists and builders -were invited to send in plans and ideas. Every kind of liberty, in theory, -was allowed to those who took part in this cnrious competition. Thus the best scheme did not necessarily require the .retention Dlckend 1 \Vork» Plentifully Sprinkl»«l with Situations Suitable for stiico. It is curious what a penchant Dickens bad for certain melodramatic situations, which seemed to his fancy so telling 1 that he repeated nnd reproduced them many times over. He had a lively dramatic turn, suj'S a writer in the Gen- 1 tlemen's Magazine, nnd I always ! thought would have had extraordinary j success as a dramatist. I onuo asked him why he had not taken up this "line" seriously, and I think he made tho excuse—it was long ago. many years before his death—that he had not time, taste or patience. Tho real ren- son, no doubt, was that he could not work without expanding 1 , and could not | "carve heads -upon a cherry jtone." A ; literary friend, who has his "Boz" at \ his fingers' ends, has with great^acute- 1 ness pointed out to me that Nicholas ! Nicklebv was a genuine -'Adelphi walking 1 gentleman;'' his manner, heroic : bursts, protection of his sister, bearding- of Ralph, etc., were all.olemcE.ts in the Adelphi melodrama, Ralph was a \ regular stage viilo.in. That his works ' are all dramatic and conceived in tbe true spirit of the stage is plain from the vast list of adaptations. Each story has been adapted again and again, and will bear the process admirably. One method for winding up his plot, to which he was excessively partial, was the unmasking of the villain owing to the betrayal o£ soma confederate. The parties arc generally brought together in a room by the more virtuous mem bers; the confederate then emerges from his concealment and tells a long story of villainy. We have this denouement first in "Oliver Twist," where Monks makes his revelations. In "Nicklcby" Ralph is confronted with the man Snawley and Squeers. In tho "Old Curiosity Shop" Quilp is similarly exposed. In "Barnaby Rudge," Hare- dalo forces' his hcrditary enemy to make revelations. In "Chuzzlewit," Jonas is confronted with another betrayer. In "CopperJield," Uriah Ileep is denounced and exposed by Mr. Micawber. In "Bleak House," Lady Ded- lock is similarly tracked. In nearly all the cases the guilty person goes of! and commits suicide. *' C s. *- ARE BIRDS GUIDED BY STARS? An Attempt to Solve the Great Mystery of Bird Migration. In an article on "Birds of Passage" the Cbautauquan says if one desires an explanation for the great mystery of bird migration, there being nothing- else that will answer, he will have to accept the theory of hereditary knowledge, a knowledge of the xmfailmg stars. The Great Bear and Orion _ appeared at the same time in our region, even when the divisions of land and water wore very different than they arc to-day. That the stars are the guides for birds agrees with the fact that they fly at remarkable heights, 'often above the clouds, and that wanderers lose their way when they stray into clouds and mists. On starlight nights straggling birds are seldom noticed. When the sky is overcast, when the night is dark, but especially when a fine rain is falling, multitudes of traveling birds are heard. Then they call often, doubtless for the purpose of keeping near each other; and often great niimbers of them bound against the windows of lighthouses. Thus Gatke has observed that on October 28,18S3, from ten o'clock at night till the nest morning golden- crested wrens bumped like snotvflakes against the lighthouse of Heligoland, and that on the following day golden- crested wrens sat on every square foot of Heligoland. Toward the end of the summer, along into the fall, it was not a. rare occurrence on dark nights to see, through the light of street lamps, birds flying over inland cities. The experienced observer recognizes by its call the curlew and the strand-snipe, sea-swallow and seagull, occasionally hears even the.flap of their wings. But no bird is visible in the darkness. On dark nights no stars appear; then it is that the straying bird loses his way. The stars arc the most plausible guides to birds in their migrations. But only the future can tell us whether they' really serve in that capacity. Few people realize the necessity of varying the clothing according to the temperature, and many a woman wears a sealskin sacque or a heavy wrap in •weathtjr which demands nothing wann- er than a coat of light cloth. It was the duke of Wellington who was credited with possessing fourteen overcoats, .from which he selected each day the one best suited to the prevailing temperature, and perhaps his carefulness 'in this matter had mnch to do with the fact that he lived to the advance-1 afe if eighty-four. Their Liven « ">"-^ f Match Making: an About t heir Dlverilon- The life of a young girl in ; re-land, if she be' in a provincial town or in the country, is as sluggish as that of her English sisters, with fewer resource* than the English girl has. It is in the country that ennui dry rots. The Irish maiden of whatever class has few resources, says the New York Independent. If she be of the Protestant and gentlo class —the term is nearly synonymous- fcho is reared in fi drowsy and gentle conservatism that excludes, as a rule, books, except of the most goodly sort, art, politics, and any interest iiTher neighbors. She is generally wrapped in love or in cotton wool, is gentle, and most innocent of the world and all appertaining thereto. Irish girls have not the training of the fingers that the English girl usually has; they have not the resource of needlework or fancy work except to a slight extent. Any departure, such as literary inclination, would be little short of scandal- The wings of homo brood over such a girl, and in the shadow of them she is likely to have dreams of discontent if she be of the imaginative kind. There arc not even the poor to visit .is there would be in England. Of course for a score of families such as this there is one which enjoys itself, whereof the young women follow the hounds and the mother rides- to the meet in her pony phaeton. This is the class which gives its daughters a season in town and has relays of visitors, and entertains the officers .from the nearest garrison towns. But as a rule the lives of Irish gentlewomen arc narrower, more colorless, and far more conservative than those of their English sisters. The dearth of young men in every place but the metropolis is a melancholy feature of social life in Ireland. Families cannot afford to keep their sons at home idle, while in all classes except the most humble it is a tradition that the daughters should stay at home and go white-handed. I have heard of evening parties whore half a dozen cavaliers, ranging from eighteen to eighty, were apportioned to thirty or forty ladies. True, I have seen nearly as much disproportion at a Norfolk tennis party, but there one did not so pity the maids, who were in many cases birds of passage, and in other places had many opportunities for pleasure. The higher education has scarcely reached the Irish country homes. In Dublin there is an excellent women's coHe^c the Alexandra, but its pupils are mainly drawn from the professional and mercantile classes of Dublin itself. In the country places women are leadin^ very much the stagnant lives of the women of the SO's. They have the "-cutler virtues and are not numerous enough-if that be not an unfair and ignoble explanation—to form the little coteries which in other lonely places are apt to degenerate into tattlers and gossips. They have little outdoor life. There is no reason why Kathleen and Eily should not be amateur gardeners, for instance, and assist the old gardener, who is rather handicapped for help; but there is the old tradition of the helplessness and softr handedness of the young ladies, often enough they pine and fret in the lonely and lovely country. For, if you will observe, the beauty of a place becomes meaningless to the blunted senses of people lonely for their kind. In this class match-making is, no doubt, going out of fashion. It yet prevaUs in the smaller fanning class and among the shop keepers of the country towns. It demolishes honest sentiment where it exists as a custom. A girl said to me one day in a country- shop, a handsome, clever girl: "V> hat for should I save my money? If I stinted and scraped year in and year out, what good would it do me? There's nobody in this town to marry only ould shows of widowers, an' they're lookin' for a girl with three hundred dollars." I had said nothing of marriage, and her non sequitur meant that in her mind, the possession of money was closely connected with getting a husband. She only sniffed a scornful disbelief when one hinted at the existence of such a thing as love. The match-making customs have been too often described for me to go over them here. My father has often assisted at them when cattle-buying in Monster, and has even brought one or the other to terms by "splitting the difference" in the number of pounds or cattle or sheep that were to moke the dowry. There is generally a convenient intermediary of this sort present, though it -is with outward reluctance • the parties give in, and "only because they wouldn't go ag'm Mr. 's word." All the time the boy and girl aregazingsbyly and awkwardly at each other in an adjoining room, not know- i ing whether they are to be husband ! and wile, or if the "ba.Tfra.in" will be broken off. The strange thing is that the system works welL Irish, women are of all women most faithful to the marriage i TOW. Domestic ties in Ireland are very J cjpse and tender.
