Cnyoa of tk» Cclers)** CmagwnC. The Justly famous Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is, like the Colorado. gorgeously colored and abruptly countersunk In a plateau, and both are mainly the work of water. But the Colorado's canyon is more than 1,000 time* larger, and aa a score or two new buildings of ordinary alee would not appreciably cbango the general view of a great city so hundreds of Yellowstone* might be eroded In the side* of the Colorado canyon without noticeably augmenting It* slie or the richness of it* sculpture. But It Is not true that the great Yoeetnlte rocks would be thus lost or hidden. Nothing of their kind In the world, so far as I know, rivals El Capltan and Tlsslack, much lew dwarfs or In any way belittle* tbem. None of the sandstone or limestone precipices of the canyon that I have peen or heard of approaches in smooth. flawless strength and grandeur the granite face of El Capltan or the Te- naya side of Cloud's Beat These colossal cliffs, types of permanence, are About 8,000 and 6,000 feet high; tboa* of the canyon that are sheer are about half as high and are types of fleeting change, while glorious domed Tlsslack, noblest of mountain buildings, far from being overshadowed or lost in this rosy, splry canyon company, would draw every rye and in serene majesty "aboon them a'" she would take her place-- castle, temple, palace or tower. ·Nevertheless a noted writer, comparing the Grand canyon in a general way .with the glacial Yospinlte, says: "And the Yosemltc-- ah, the lovely Yosemitel pumped down into the wilderness of gorges and! mountains, it would take a guide who knew of its existence a long tune to find it." This Is striking and shows up well above the levels of commonplace description, but It Is confusing and hag the fatal fault of not being true.-- John Molr In Century.

Rabelais compiled n curious Hit ot Inks of a sympathetic nature, which ·were largely In vogue In bis dayi. In bin book entitled "Pantngruel" he | make* his readers acquainted with 1 'Parmrguc's exploits In trying to decipher the Invisible characters of a letter which a Parisian female had ' (Written to Pnntagruel. "He held It up 'before a fire," says Rabelais, "to gee If It wns written with spirits of ammonia mixed with water. Then he placed It In water to discover If the hWritlng bad not been done with sirup of tltbymal. When tills would not ·work, he held It over a candle, which (would have brought out the characters bad they been written with the juice of white onions. By rubbing a part of it with nut oil he tried to nnd whether H bad not been written with the sap of a fig tree. And if frog** blood had ibcen used In the place of ink the milk Ifrom the breast of n woman suckling her firstborn daughter would have betrayed the secrets of tlmt letter." : Two of a Kind. An old woman recently entered an Optician's shop and asked to look at some spectacles. Cbooxing a pair, she asked the price. "Five shillings," was the answer. "And bow much are they without tho case?" "I could not noil tbem for less than 4s. Itkl." salil the tradesman, who was determined to get all he could. "Do you tnko off twopence for the case7" queried tlio woman. "That is all. The case Is worth no more than twopence," was the reply. "Tlmt Is good news!" ejaculated thf old lady, with a sigh of relief. "It's the caso for mine which I have lost." Bo saying she laid down the two- pence and marched off with the coveted case before the astonished shopkeeper had time to Interfere.--London An- Origin of «he lied Cap of Liberty. The red cap of liberty bad a very pro- aalc origin. Instead of being the 'Phrygian bonnet" it Is Just tho galley slave's headgear. The Swiss of the CbateaurouK regiment sent to the galleys for their share In the Nancy riots were released and came Into Paris with the red caps still on their heads, "They are the victims of despotism," said th» people, forgetting the circumstances of the riot, and so tho red cap became the favorite with the extreme party. Toothache. If one hag a toothache and can't reach the dentist, try this method of temporarily allaying the pain: Cleanse' and dry the hollow tooth with a bit of cotton. Then put in a small cotton plug dipped In creosote or oil of cloves. Cover this with another bit of dry cotton, or, still better, a !lttle beeswax and cotton kneaded together. Tola keeps out the air and downs the "misery" until a dentiat can be reached. "That Englishman Shaking Is very well fixed, Isn't her' Inquired Polk. "Well," replied Jolk, "gome people think so, hot I know he hasn't a bit ot property he can call big own." "Nonsense! He lives in hi* own house." ·That may be, but he calls it "to town.'

Chicago, Dec. 29.--Ins|iectlon of the ·weekly quotations of dressed beef prices UK chronicled In the files of the National Provlsloncr, a trade paper devoted te the Interests of the meat trade, shown that thp present lowcost of beef has come about In the lust three month*, though previously there was a gradual decline from the maximum of price* reached In May or June. The packer* attribute the present favorable condition of things for tho consumer to the lower prices of live stock. Witch are «a1d to be much mote plentiful. It Is worthy of noto that the United States charges alleging a beef combination were filea In May, and that Jtw ot the charges was that tho packers controlled the live stock supply. The. assertion that the drop In the price of beef to the rentiers ha* been about 4 cents per pound do«K not *eem borne out by the quotations, which indicate a decline ot about 3 cent* from the maximum to the present market.
