They wanted everything from a square meal to a first-class ticket to Niagara Falls or Chicago, } aad as such expense must be borne by the consul, I should have been stripped had I met even a fraction of the demand.

The government Is too close ID its relations with Its consular officers to succeed In extending the sphere of American trade. The British can teach us some things in this line.

Something Abint the Shrub Beseath Which Lath and Lasses Meet, During? the joyous yuletide much is said of the mistletoe and holly, and frequent questions are asked con cerning these two holiday decorative plants. Briefly, the mistletoe, according to an exchange, is a parasitic sbrub. with sessile, oblong leaves and small, yellowish-green flowers, the whole forming a pendant bush, which is covered in winter with small, white berries containing a glutinous substance. It Is found on a gret*| variety of trees, especially the apple tree. The mistletoe was consecrated to religious purposes by the ancient Celtic cations, and was held in special veneration by the Druids. The American holly is an evergreen tree that in some instances attains a height of forty-five feet. It differ from the European holly in having less glossy, deep green foliage, less bright red berries, and the nutlets are Dot &* veiny. It is distributed generally from Massachusetts south, and west to the valley of the Colorado river, attaining Its greatest de velopment in the rich bottoms of Arkansas and eastern Texas. The flowers grow in clusters and are succeed ed by roundish berries, which turn to a beautiful red about September. The plant is a, haansome evergreen suitable for hedges.

Boniface, jr., George Ober, Wm. Bernard, Beuben Fax, J. W, Cope, Cecil Kingston, Harry Rose, Anna Belmont, Kathryn Oaterman, Mattie Ferguson, Florence Robinson, Mrs. E. A. Bbeile and Rose Staart. "Jones" was played at the Bijou theatre, New York, for three months, and could easily have remained there the entire winter were it not for other engagements made by the management of the house. There Is nothing in the world likelaughter.lt Is moreover contagious. "The man who cannot laugh," says Carlyle, "is not only fit for treason, nstratagems and spoils, bat h),s wfiole'llfe is already a treason and a stratagem." The beauty about "What Happened to Jones" Is that it makes you laugh in spite of yourself.
