MADAME MODJESKA, the famous actress, who has for years charmed the American people with her high dramatic art, has been expelled by the Russian government from Wariaw. The Czar of Russia bad ordered that Madame Mod'jeska should not again appear on tho stage under the Russian jurisdiction on account of a speech she delivered on tbe subject ol 1 "Polish Womon" to the World's Congress of Representative Women, held at Chicago during the World's Fair. The great actress, although notified that she would not be allowed to act in her native land, went there and her expulsion has resulted. It is needless to say that the sympathy of the people of the United States is with the talented actress and noble woman. The day may arrive during the life of the present Czar, if the lovers of liberty do not put an end to H soon, when the actress will be received in Poland aa the masses of the people would like to receive her, and when there Is DO despotic ruler todrlveheraway.

M in thej^cue of Edgar Allen Poe Jor iniUnca, jet aa »rule literary men of great ability h»Te not been allowed to •uffer by the public. prcssion that Chancellor Prince Hohenlohe affects the style of the "grand seignior," living in luxury and pomp quite unknown in Wilhelmstrasse during the days of Bismarck and Caprivi. Count von Schoenborn-Wicsenthied, chief of the chancellor's special bureau, rives a few details of Prince Eolen- lohe's daily life, which throw light on his personal tastes and inner character The chancellor rises in winter at 1 and in summer much earlier. After coffee with a buttered roll he smokes a cigarette. At 7:30 he begins his work over the morning-mail. ... He often scans his letters as he walks in the garden, at the same time scattering crumbs among the birds in the path Pigeons, sparrows and blackbirds gather round him when he sits down. They are quite tame, as he has made them his pets ever since he moved into Wilhelmstrasse. Sun or rain, cold or warm, he has not forgotten for a single day his engagement to feed them. \t 9 o'clock he goes to his workroom, the one from which Bismarck and Caprivi directed the affairs of the empire. The furniture has not been changed. It is the same as in the days of the iron chancellor and the old emperor. At 9'UO the daily official routine opens with the reports from the aids and the coun- cillors of the foreign office. The chief of the press bureau brings in foreign and domestic newspaper clippings pasted on official foolscap and so arranged as to convey the most information with th*lcast weariness of spirit. About 12:30 the ministers' half-hour for consultation with their chiefs begins A minister whose business is not finished at 1 is invited to eat luncheon with the chancellor, who usually has at the table also the princes or other families of the Hohenlohe family. The meal consists of cold meats, eggs and tea. With his tea the chancellor takes another cigarette, after which he drives Chicago engineers, as a matter ol course. , Prof. G. Frederick Wright, of Oberlin college, who has perhaps made a more careful study of the geology and geography of the lake region than any ether man in the United States, does not agree with the Clucago engineers, however. Prof. Wright shows that the quantity of \vater required to be turned Into the drainage canal when it is first opened will be equal to about five per cent, of the quantity that now flows over Niagara. When the population of Chicago reaches two millions, the law •under which the canal was constructed provides that the quantity of water passing through it shall be doubled. That means that at least ten per cent. as much water as now passes over Niagara will be diverted from the lakes to the Mississippi.... Maj. RufEner, of the corps of engineers of the United States army, estimates that when the drainage canal is ; 'first-/opened the re- gult will be to lower the level of Lakes Michigan. Huron and Erie and the connecting rivers at' least nine inches, and that when the canal is operated to its lull capacity the fall in the water level will be eighteen inches. This, Prof. Wright says, may have but little effect in the rainy season, but during the late summer and autumn he is certain that it will seriously interfere with navigation. He declares that the vessel owners tind all who are interested in the commerce of the lakes should realize the danger and do all they can to avert Jt. As a preventive measure he suggests that a dam be constructed across the lower end of Lake Superior at the "Soo." which will raise the level of that lake two feet and store enough water during the rainy season to supply the lower lakes during the late summer and fall. Prof. Wright says that the level of the lake's is such that if the continent were to dip fifty feet to tho west, all the water which now goes over Niagara would flow over Illinois and into the Mississippi, and if the dip were one hundred feet to the north the water of the lakes would go through Lake Nipissing- into the Ottawa river, and tho Niagara would become dry. Certainly his suggestions are worthy the attention of lake men and vessel owners, and an investigation should be started to determine what the actual effect of the opening of the Chicago canal will be. Chicago ought not to be deprived of this means of disposing of its sewage, but if there is any way of preventing such a serious interference with the navigation of the lower lakes, as is threatened, action should be taken at once to avert it.

He passes only a small part of his time with the deputies, however. He works in liis office, quite ] brance remote from the house, usually talking. •'- r over state business with conspicuous officials and politicians. He walks back to the chancellery, receives a fresh batch of official reports, and at 7:!30 goes to the family dinner. The hill of fare is far from elaborate. After soup and fish comes the familiar -Jish known as "Bayrisehc rindfleiscti und geinucsc," plain boiled beef with vegetables. Sweets and cheese complete the meal. Various wines are served, but the chancellor drinks very sparingly of only one sort, usually limiting 1 himself to a sing-le glass of light Alsatian. A glass of beer after dinner and a cup of coffee with a big Havana cigar are the last items of his menu. At ten o'clock he retires to his workroom and resumes his labors with his interminable correspondence. At inid- Statlstlcn Gathered Dnrlnc the Cennon Tnkcn Five Yearn Ago. The compilation of farms, homes and mortgages statistics made by the last census is interesting in view of the decision of the supreme court. These statistics do not, however, give details 'concerning rents paid. A summary.of the statistics shows that there arc 12,000 152 families in the United States and of these families 52 per cent, hire their farms or homes and 4S per cent. own them, while 2S per cent, of the owning families own subject to incum- and 72 per cent, own free of incumbrancc. Among 100 families, on an average, 52 hire their farms or homes, 18 per cent, own with mcnm- branccs and 35 without incumbrance. On the owned farms and homes there are liens amounting to 82,133,040,508, which is 37 per cent, of the value of the incumbercd farms and homes, and this debt bears interest at the average rate of 0.05 per cent. Each owned and in- cumbered farm or home, on the average, is worth «3,S52 and is subject to a debt of 51,257. In regard to the families occupying farms, the conclusion is that 34 per cent. of the families hire and 00 per cent. own the farms cultivated by them; that 2S per cent, of the owning families own subject to incumbrance, and 72 per cent, own free of incumbrance. Among 100 farm families, on the average, S-l farms, 19 per cent, nin-ht he goes to bed". per cent, hire the farms, 1U per cenL.

Tho repuuation of the Hohenlohes as entertainers is preserved by tho princess, whose grand balls and receptions maintain the traditions of an open and hospitable house On the'owned farms there are liens amounting to 51,085,995,000, which is 35 per cent, of the value of the incumbered farms, and this debt bears interest at the average rate of 7.07 per cent.

WATER LEVEL IN THE LAKES, j Speculation ni to the Kcnult of Opening tho Chicago Llrainaco CanaL ; The probable effect of the opening of the Chicago drainage canal upon the water level of the great lakes has been the subject of discussion ever since that tremendous project took shape, says the Cleveland Leader. A cry of alarm was raised several years ago when it •was announced that the diversion of • water from Lake Michigan in anything ; ]ike the quantity required to fill the : canal then being constructed across : Illinois to the Mississippi valley would j seriously interfere with the navigation; of the St. Clair and Detroit rivers and j render it impossible for heavy-draught i vessels to enter most of the harbors on , the lower lakes. The Chicago engin- eershave done their best ever since to-1 dispel that belief. They have main-.) tained that the taking from the lakes- •, of all the water that will ever b« re-., quired for the canal will not lower the lake level more than three inches, and , the Chicago newspapers have all .indorsed the ODinions expressed by the PLEA FOR NERVOUS Amber 8aj« Th»r« Are Heroen There Ari> Others There arc more who die on battlefields; more martyrs than those the world's memory embalms; more saints names are told courage does marches into over une ireiiis tnat loving nanas prepare? But when you find the lily blooming on the dusty highway and the rose budding above the homely hut of poverty, then take notice of ltd beauty, for angels might honor it and God Himself consent to wear it next Ilis heart. When I see healthy men and women condemning the nervous weakness ol some poor woman made querulous by battles hotter than Gettysburg 01 Waterloo, I fancy I see a lot of blacksmith hammers sitting in judgment upon the vibratory instincts of a watch spring. Care and trouble that would pass over your heads as the winds pass over mountain pines, only bending the topmost boughs a little, while the roots take hold in the strength of the hills, would sweep the delicate mechanism of other natures into chaos. 17 , What do«s your flesh-and-blood lie be know of nerves? Her blood is elixir, her sinews are strung cords, and all her goings out and comings in are attuned to the motion of buoyant life. She is a splendid physical development, a master mechanism that runs as smoothly as a feather drawn through oil. Of course she carries electric cheer wherever she goes. She is never out of sorts—why should she be? A harp kept always in tune gives forth no discords, tine is never despondent, cast down, lost iu the shadows—why should she be? An eagle in the face of tho sun is far above all shadows, out of range of hunters with their cowardly ambush and deadly aim. For her to be bonny and Dlitno and sweet forever is delightful to be sure, yet of no especial credit, to either her heart or her disposition. But take the woman who has hosts of babies and a shattered vitality, who was made a frail and -delicate creature at the first, and by chance and circumstance has been gradually reduced until her body is little more than an astral vase that holds the flower of life, and let her be sunshiny and cheerful one-fourth of her time, and the other three-fourths querulous and tearful, and as blue as indigo, I tell you that poor little miserable one-fourth redeems the whole, and makes her life a surprise, I think, to the angcla who keep watch over and know her baffling limitations. She shall pass through life with no song of deliverance, no need of glory, such as conquerors 'know; she shall be found fault with and despised by souls that cannot understand her any more than they understand why tbe mimosa shrinks at a breath, or tho harp responds to the touch of the troubadour wind. She shall lie down in death at last as upon a couch of perfect peace, meekly wondering, perhaps, or timidly questioning the welcome her spent and weary soul shall "receive from the Master. Her shattered body shall be laid away with tears and soon forgotten, but oh. I love to think of the surprise that awaits the dear heart there! She shall find that every prayer for strength, every yearning for enduring grace, every heart-throb and tear has been remembered by'the heart of infinite love. She shall find the music, and the brightness, and the peace earth fulled to bestow, garnered there like golden sheaves in an autumn of plenty. She shall at last be understood and enter into the sympathy of that great company who. like her, have come up through tribulation unto the perfect peace, the unclouded joy of Heaven.

It is not tbe sea that makes a sailor o vulgar animal, but the vices he takes to it. The life of the sea is bitter and hard but it is not .so bitterly hard as oi itself to vulgarize a man. "The spirit of the Creator is never so close to one as at sea," says Mr. W. Clark Russell, the writer of sea romances, and he teas this anecdote to illustrate how a rough seaman maybe subdued by a feeling of reverence: A sailor, a rough, hectoring, swearing THE LOST SHEEP. B Pl<*""> °f th. Beautiful Biblical Parable. The traveler in Palestine sees not infrequently a parable of the Gospels ac«d out'before hini. One of these luring pictures passed before France, Pow£ Cobbc, as she was riding: through the low hill* which bound tho blighted flats of the Dead sea. Inner "Life, bv Herself," she describes the beautiful sight and the impression It riding alone, a few hundred yards ahead of the caravan, she met ft. inan, the only one she had seen since passing a few black tents eig it or ten miles away. He was a noble-looking: young shepherd, dressed in tho camel* hair robe, and with the powerful limbs. and elastic step of the children of the P Utners. 2\ s>u,ijiui » u- * vw fe ~i — •_• heroes than those fellow, a,kcd one of the ship boys to . . i.,,,1 ., ^ !.:.„ K;= TOWo.

There is an exalted enthusiasm that carries the martyr to his doom, but in the prosaic lot of many women what enthusiasm can clothe the barren life with anything worthy the crown and the palm that lie beyond the martyr's suffering? The samtly lives that cast the whiteness of their bloom in secluded cloisters, apart from the world's allurements, folded from its temptations as lambs are folded from the preying wolf and the wtter storm, leave fair and lovely records, it is true, of tender ministrations and sweet self-abnegation; of prayers as pure as snow that falls- on mountain peaks, or stars that wing their way Sieve them; .but why should it be otherwise? Should not lilies spring in sheltered gardens and roses clamber lend him his Bible, will make fun of it," answered the boy. "So, no. my lad," quickly replied the sailor, "I don't ridicule God Almighty. The sailor, in common with many landsmen, has a schoolboy fear of dcnsion. He cannot endure bcir.g laughed at, and therefore hides even the crude religious feeling which may be in him. When, however, he stands by his colors ?nd shows that a man may be a good sailor and a good Christian, he is not likely to encounter derision from his shipmates. „ "I remember being a shipmate vrrites Sir. Russell, "with a fine, intellectual sailor, a man with .as retin«u a face and as gentle and expressvc an eye as ever I met, who during the voy- a-e made a practice in one of the^ dogwatches in toe weather to read the Bible in the forecastle to such as chose to listen to him. He could get no hearers for a 'good while, but I do not know that the roughest, most unfeeling fellow in the ship ever veatered to whisper so much as a jest at the man's struggle to be of service to his fellows. ^ "He was universally known as a smart and a sure hand, an excellent seaman in all senses, quiet, gentle, unobtrusive, with a hearty laugh, a man that a shipmate would go to in trouble, sure or sympathy and of such help as the poor fellow's slender resources admitted. his neck, and with its little- limbs held gently by his hand, hiy a lamb he had rescued and was carrying home. The little creature lay as if perfectlr contented and happy, and the- man looked pleased as he strode along- lightly with his burden. As MissCobbo sauted him with the usual gesture of pointing to heart and head and the ••Salaam alik!" (Peace wiUi you!) he responded with a smile and a kindly glance at the lamb, to which he saw her eves were directed. -It was actually," "-rites the delighV ed witness, "the beautiful parable of the Gospel acted out before my sight. Every particular was true to the story; the shepherd had doubtless left his. •ninetv-and-nine' in the wilderness. rouncUhe black tents we had seen so far away, and had sought for the lost lamb 'till he found it,' where it must quickly have perished without his help. Literally, too, 'when ho had found it, be laid it on his shoulders, rejoicing. THE NEGRO VOICE. it i. Not Ad»pt«a to tb« smsm* of Whit* Man'i Munlo. Owing to personal idiosyncrasies tho vocal apparatus of the negro differs from that of the white man. Ihc arch of the roof of the mouth, the nasal sounding board of the colored man, has another conformation. If a true colored man were to paint his face like a white man's and sing an English, Italian or German aria it is his voice which would at once give him away, says an exchange. The imitative faculty is, however, very strong in the negro so he cannot help himself in following the white man's music and the white man s words. The true, pure African song is probably the "Juba." It is hardly a song, but a chant, abounding in spoken words. As to rhythm, the native negro, or the one born in the United States, has that to a marked degree. If now and then there lias been an occasional negro vocalist of merit' since their period of freedom, why has there not been an instrumentalist? The reason isplam. lo have a fine voice is an accident of nature. To play an instrument well, so as to gain a reputation as a violinist or pianist, means, in addition to natural talent, to devote to the violin or piano many years of study. The race instinct in the negro docs not incline toward persistency, of purpose. With rhythm alone, as \Yallaschek shows, primitive music began. mint! Bridle* GolnR Oct.
