WM Is one of the beat seaporta on th« Baltic, and during the middle age* was a powerful Hans* town, came under Swedish dominion through the Weat- phaUan peace in 1648. In 1802 the city was pledged^ MecUenbur* for 100 I years, Sweden receiving some $2,000,000, ·ays the New York Time*. The hundred years' mortgage period came to a close on June 26. but the formal cession was not to take place until August 19.

It was due joyment of her ancient rights and privileges. The claim of Sweden, while only of a contingent nature, has caused much confusion and difficulty. On account of it Wismar has oeen without representation in the diet, and Emperor William himself has been compelled to issue all | edicts having reference to Wismar in the name of a foreign monarch, the king of Sweden. Many legal entanglements In connection with property titles and the record of deeds have also resulted from the peculiar situation. Although Wismar was pledged with a right of renewal for another hundred years, there has been no thought of ever taking advantage of this proviso. With the interest which has accrued the sum necessary to redeem the city is far in excess of any amount the Swedish treasury would be in a position to disburse at the present time, especially for a possession from which no commercial or political advantage could be derived. There is no doubt that Emperor William--had the renewal been seriously proposed--would have caused it to be abandoned by bringing pressure to bear which the little kingdom in the north would be in no position to resist The surrender ot Wismar was unconditional and without consideration, although the action of the riksdag was preceded by a heated debate, in the course of which many propositions were made and voted down. One of these ·was to secure in exchange for the surrender certain conc*ssions for Denmark in the territory lost in the Prussian war of 1864. This was purely sentimental and did not commend itself to the more practical members of the legislative body. Then a proposition was made with a view WEaving Germany make Wismar a free harbor for the entry of Swedish products, but this was also negatived. It goes beyond saying that the surrender has aroused a great deal of sentimental regret among all classes In Sweden. Wismar was the last of Sweden's foreign possessions, and vividly recalled to the patriot a gre^t era in the history of the country of * hich every Swede is justly proud. The city was won through the Thirty Years' war. in which Swedish arms were carried to victory against tremendous odds and for a disinterested purpose, and which ended by Sweden holding enough of German territory to be entitled to three seats In the German diet. But to offset this it is generally recognized that the generous action of the BUSINESS COLLEGES. APOTHECARY . CONFECTION Joe Crew ICE CREAM SODA, ICE CREAM BY THE PINT, QUART AND GALLON.

A deputation of citizens from Wismar is now visiting the Swedish capital as the nation's guests. How Wismar came to be pledged is rather an interesting story. Gustavtis Adolphus IV., a namesake of the king through whom the city was won, believed that in a vision he had been intrusted jrith the. awful mission of Mendicants are criminals, nine- tenths of'them with criminal records, is the report of those who have investigated these wretches who are allowed to parade their simulated miseries upon our streets. Those who are in fact legless or armless may have lost those undesired and useless organs as tramps in stealing rides on railroad trains, etc., and even the few really blind of the many that pretend to be so. were made so purposely or are glad they are so, says \merican Medicine. N-ew York city is ridding itself of these impostors bv the simple expedient of showng up their frauds. In the slang of these wort-hies, "New York is jimmied." By taking the good arms out of splints or the sound legs out of casts, exposing the sham blind, and the malingering, paralytic, punishing the frauds, etc., the streets are cleared of them. Other cities are yet to take a lesson. "Chi Slim" made a large income, some $50 a week for years, in an hour or two a day in New York playing the paralytic. "British" was almost as successful. "P. P." is the name given by the fraternity to the plaster-of-paris bandage meiu The "sap" men are the crutch and cripple frauds. The "cane men" are those who go no farther than canes. The "human crab," the "human dog." the "human alligator," are other types. The "crust-thrower" is tte fellow who slyly drops a moldy enrat of farad before the yassey^y aj^ *feen seizes it as if with hiuigtfi.
