'i •J-.Ck'iSiJ M, Flgr- W •spssieweg SEVERAL PARISIAN DENS RARE COMBINATIONS OF LUXURY, COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE. Sanctnm* of Scientists, Critic* and Wtwary Gtnlnni of World Wide Rep ntatlom—Where the Bright Light* Beto Do Their Chosen Worlt The sanctnm of M. Lotus Pasteur, for is one of the most simple in the high order of truly physical comfort. It is not encumbered with the scientific paraphernalia often met with in the honses of medical men. A large carved oak table stands by the eide of the armchair in which the great scientist often •its in quiet contemplation of his past experience and future hopes. In that high stack of green cases at which he casts an occasional glance stores of valuable notes are classed in perfect order. ®»ey are ready for reference should a Jr®Bh problem arise in the course of his labors in bringing about the prevention or enra of that terrible affliction to the study of which he has devoted so many years of his valuable and successful life. •M. Pasteur usually wears a close fitting •kull cap when in his sanctum. He is grand cross of the Legion of Honor, member of the French academy and perpetual secretary of the Academy of Sciences. THE GREAT TOWER BUILDER. M. Gustavo Eiffel, the engineer whose wonderful popularity has grown so rapidly, is accustomed to ruminate in a quiet looking but very comfortable sor of library. He is fond of walking about when in deep calculation, and frequently makes a halt in front of his admirable chimney piece, the shelf of -which is surmounted by a very chaste and beautiful female bust On each side of the chimney piece is a handsome Venetian mirror. It waa in this sanctum, situated in the Rue de Prony, that M. Gustave Eiffel solved the last few serious difficulties which at one time threatened the completion of his Champ de Mars triumph and there it is that he now meditates over the opposition formed by some of the members of the municipal council to his project for the construction of the Metropolitan railway for Paris. The main objections to the metropolitan scheme are that it would destroy the beauty of the boulevards and ruin the line of omnibuses running from the Madeleine to the Bastile. It is not at all unlikely that the engineer who triumphed so gloriously in the case of his tower will achieve another victory with the railway he proposes to construct. The man of the iron tower is an officer of the Legion of Honor. M. Francisque Sarcey, the well known theatrical critic of The Temps, and one of the brightest of the galaxy of Parisian chroniclers, inhabits during his long working hotirs a library in which he is almost surrounded by his books. M. Sarcey is beyond what is usually considered the prime of life, yet he looks well as, "with spectacles on nose," and wearing a soft and smooth white beard, he poses himself carefully and closely over his table in front of the copy he is carefully preparing. He is reputed to be a model of gallantry toward the ladies but the case might be reversed when it is considered that the lady artists whom it is his duty to criticise not infrequently call at his house to ask a favor or an act of justice for. their professional requirements. There are two places where Sarcey may very often be met with one is his library, and the other is his fautenil d'orchestre, whenever a grand performance or a premiere representation is given at any of the principal Parisian theatres. WEAVERS OF ROMANCE. M. Georges Ohnet, the celebrated romancist and dramatist, still young and handsome, with his smooth dark hair carefully brushed and parted, usually sits in pensive attitude in one of those luxurious armchairs with which his study abounds. The sculptured chimney piece by the side of which he takes his place in winter is a work of art in three stories, surmounted by a beautiful clock and a looking glass out of old or young human reach. The author of the "Maitre de Forges" is one of the most amiable of Parisian litterateurs, as all who have visited him at his charming residence in the Avenue Trudiane can affirm. M. Georges Ohnet is as young in the Order of the Legion of Honor as he ia in his age but with time both may sorely be expected to ripen and advance to a brilliant maturity. M. Emile Zola dwells in the artistic quarter Clichy, where, in the Rue Ballu, he possesses a sumptuously furnished sanctum, provided with sofas, peacock pictures of the greatest beauty, statuettes, evergreens and objects of art in every variety. All these strikingly apparent comforts and delights combine to encourage that inclination for the dolce far niente to which the indefatigable pretender to academical honors does not for one moment yield. With his limpid hair falling in a loose style on each side of his head, after the manner of many popular knights of the palette, he continues to wear the same binocle as when he wrote "L'Assommoir" and "LaTerre." In fact Zola, by his free and easy appearance, looks more like an artiste, peintre than a literary man. He may be considered a painter also, since he writes pictures with his pen almost as vividly as those who paint them with their brashes. M. Emile Zola is a chevalier of the Legion of Honor, and the red ribbon is well placed and well merited as the reward of his profound thought, bold Imagination and vigorous expression that an sometimes severely criticised bat invariably admired.—Gaiigaani's The Phoenicians are amongst the earliest nations which are supposed to have used the saw. The scholar is not surprised to find a very pretty story accounting for the discovery of the saw in Grecian mythology. Here the inventor Is said to have found the jawbone of* which he imitated by jagging an COVES CRAfL. The moon white waters wash and leap, The dark tide floods the coves of Crail Sound, sound he lies in dreamless sleep, Nor hears the sea wind waiL The pale gold of his oozy locks Doth hither drift and thither wave His thin hands plash against the rocks, His white lips nothing crave. Afar away she laughs and sings— A song he loved, a wild sea strain— Of how the mermen weave their rings Upon the reef set main. Sound, sound he lies in dreamless sleep, Nor hears the sea w^d wail, Tho' with the tide his white hands creep Amid the coves of Grail. —William Sharp in New York Independent. Settling a Restaurant Bill. A bluegrass idyl bas been circulating through the Southern society for several days. It is a tale of two Kentuckians— one a major, the other a colonel—who determined to gratify an oft expressed desire to visit New York. They came, and after two days of sightseeing the colonel suggested to the major that a trip to New York would not be complete without a dinner at Delmonico's. The major agreed. It was deemed that it would hardly be considerate to take Mr. Delmonico unawares, and in order to prepare him for so unusual an event as a swell dinner for two the Kentucky gentlemen went to the restaurant early in the day, called for the head waiter and told him what they wanted. "Spare no expense." they said. They dined at 6. It was a splendid dinner. They called for their bill. *The waiter placed a check, face down, on the menu. The gentlemen were toasting each other as the waiter did this, and when they placed their glasses on the table he was gone. They saw what appeared to them to be a scrap of paper on the menu and brushed it off. The old fellows were ignorant of the customs of French restaurants, and they concluded that the menu must be the bilL The colonel began to figure up the prices. It seemed that they had eaten a great deal, but the names of the dishes were in a language unknown to them, and anyway they were not in a mood to bother about trifles. But the colonel gasped when he figured up the total. It was $960. "Great heavens, saht" he exclaimed to the major. "It is $960. If we pay this we can't get back home." "We might," suggested the major faintly, "we might jump out of this window and run." "No, sah," said the colonel, bringing his fist down on the table. "We are Kentucky gentlemen, sah. We will pay this bill, sah, and then, sah, we will shoot the landlord, sah."—New York Times. He Was Not a Canary Bird. They were bride and groom, and she was a guileless thing who had been brought up in the mountains of Pennsylvania. They had come to Atlantic City on their tour, and like everybody else took the trip down to the Inlet, from which all the sailing and fishing boats go out. A party had just come in with a pailful of crabs, and the old grandfather of crabs was on top of the lot. He was chagrined, mad, red hot and he was aching to prove to the world that a crab could die fighting. This guileless bride had never seen an ocean crab before, and she uttered little screams of wonder and delight. Nay, more, she bent over and lifted old grandfather up in her plump, white hand for closer examination. His chance had come. He took hold. In one minute her shrieks had assembled 500 people, and ten seconds later she fainted dead away and upset her husband over a bait box. A fisherman out with his knife and stabbed the crab in the back and then cut him loose, and a carriage was called and the bride with the bleeding finger was borne sobbing away, never, no never, to pick up an old crab again to see whether he was a butterfly or a canary bird.—Cor. Detroit Free Press. The Parson's Substitute. A young clergyman had gone to supply the vacant pulpit of a churoli in a midland village. He was just out of the theological seminary, and had an extremely boyish appearance. A little before the hour the new minister made liis way almost unnoticed into the pulpit, -where he was concealed from view by the reading desk in front of him. But an old lady, who sat close on the right of the pulpit in consideration of her deafness, was much concerned to see a boy in the place of the expected clergyman. So she arose very softly, stepped on tiptoe to the pulpit stairs, and, beckoning with her forefinger, whispered loudly in coaxing accents "Come down, my boy. You mustn't sit there. That's the place for the minister!"—London Tit-Bits. The Transposed Piano* Concert goers to whose lot it may have fallen to listen to a song being delivered in one key -while the accompaniment was played in another will greet with satisfaction the introduction of a transposing piano, by means of which music can be transposed into any key at will. The object in view is accomplished by a movable back, e.: The solid back upon which the strings are strung instead of being rigidly fixed to the case, as in the ordinary way, is fitted on rollers and is moved literally with the greatest ease by means of a iever underneath the keyboard at the side of the performer. In all other re- spects the construction is the same as and his episcopate covers the whole of in the ordinary piano.

Drowsiness That Attacks People Irresistible drowsiness continually weighs down the patient, who can be kept awake only for the few minutes needful to take a little food. When this lethargy has lasted three or four months death comes, but only in the form of deeper slumber. The author of the book mentioned tells of a member of the royal family of Luakaka who was afflicted with this curious disease: "I found the aspect of Queen Maumee's beautiful granddaughter inconceivably affecting. It was strange to see her so quiet, hi a sleep from which it might be supposed she would awake full of youthful vigor, and yet to know that this was no refreshing slumber,' but a spell in which she was fading forever from the eyes that loved her. "This young girl was but 14 years of age. With some difficulty she was aroused, and woke with a frightened cry—a strange, broken murmur—as if she were looking dimly out in the phantasies of a dream. Her eyes were wild and glassy rolled wildly in their sockets for a second, then immediately sunk into the deep and heavy sleep in which we found her. This poor, doomed girl had been suffering for about three months—no, not suffering, for, except when forcibly aroused, there appears to be no uneasiness until after the end of the third month of this unnatural slumber, when the victim becomes wild and constantly rolls his or her head from side to side—never opening the eyes—death ensuing within a few days after these symptoms set in." To Meet Her Lover* At 5:30 in the morning a well dressed young woman arrived in Utica from Castle Garden. She had come all tli6 way from a place in western Russia, and was on her way to meet her lover in Dulutli, Minn., who had left her two years before to find a home for both of them in the New World. He went to Dulutli and became fairly prosperous. As soon as he was able he wrote to his sweetheart and urged her to come to liim, but the age and sickness of her parents kept her in Russia until this year. Both her parents having died, the young man sent her tickets to bring her to America, with what ho supposed was sufficient money for the journey. The young woman began h$r journey more than a month ago, and when she arrived at Castle Garden thought she must be within a few hours' journey of her friend. She came on to Utica, as stated, and was taken to the Central depot, whence she was to proceed on her journey by another train. She waited about the depot all day, and at night in broken German told Leonard Pruey, the baggage master, that she had not had anything to eat all day, and had only twenty cents in her purse. When she had recited the whole story, and Mr. Pruey told her that instead of a few hours she would yet have several days of travel, her distress was pitiful. The kind hearted baggageman promised to do all he could for her, and began his ministrar tions by giving her a square meal. He then interested himself in bettering her financial condition, and told Conductor JohnUnser, of the Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg, about it. Mr. Unser was bound north with his train and made no promises, but early the next morning when he came to Utica again he gave Mr. Pruey a purse of money which he had collected on his train to help the girl on her way. She finally left Utica, after a delay of about twenty-four hours, with a big bag of provisions and many good wishes.—Utica Forcible Language from the Pulpit. The pastor of one of the Babylon (Long Island) churches is quoted as delivering the following brief but pointed discourse at the morning service for the benefit of the gaudily dressed young men who had been in the habit of sauntering into church late and leaving before the services closed: "For the benefit pf the young men who come into this church after service has commenced and leave before the collection plate is passed I wish to say that the hour of service is 11 o'clock and the benediction is pronounced by 12. I would also remark that the style of attire adopted by these young men, while perhaps very becoming, is more suited for tennis court, ball field or bull fight than for the house of God." Bishop Perry's Reminiscences. Bishop Perry, who is about to give the world his reminiscences, is the retired octogenarian first bishop of Melbourne. He has survived to see two successors in that see. He was consecrated in Westminster Abbey in 1847, I ditions. His recollections ought to be I Interesting.—Pall Mall Gazette. KlItBV, President. is Some Climates Months Before Death. An interesting account descriptive of the "sleepy disease," peculiar to Africa, Is given in the "Journal of an African Cruiser." Persons attacked by this singular malady ate those who take little exercise and live principally on vegetables, particularly cassoda and rice. Some observers ascribe it to the cassoila, which is strongly narcotic. Not improbably the climate lias much influence, the disease being most prevalent in low and marshy regions. UKO. II.
