"I am not in need of a court musician," he said, smiling' at tho pallid, eager young student, "but. I do \yaut a private secretary. "Will you aeeefir the post?" No need to say what was George Neumark's answer. The situation offoro'l mean comparative wealth ami freedom from care. It meant, more—oven the possession of his beloved instrument.

In a few minutes the room was crowded AvlIJi friends ami neighbors anxious to hear him play again upon his instrument. Bow in hand he stood considering a moment how he could host preach u sermon of trust in a living, loving God. Then soft and low, glad and triumphant, each by turn, swelled out tite words of his own sweet hymn: "Leave God to order all thy ways, by one and tho dishes aro on tho table ono to two hours.

This habit goes far toward establishing, u pleasant memory that clusters the meet ing of the family annual :i festal board when in sifter years the members have been scattered to the four corners of tho globe. The meal enjoyed by all is far more satisfactory than whou laggards come straying i/i nt intervals and petitions for hot, food aro sent out every few minutes to tho loiiy-sun'orhig domestic in the kitchen.

As to the shape of 1he earth the au dents differed. Of rourse in extrciii' 1 antiquity every one \\ho thought about HIP matter nt all believed the world to be flat. Homer ovklently it?garded it as of comparatively little extent and lie thought the-ocean was a mighty stream which flowed aroun;l it. Of course in his time the earth supposed lo be the center of the universe, find Ihe sun, moon and stars were supposed to be large balls of fire, a few miles up in the air, attached in some mysterious manner to tho walls of the sky, wlucn revolved around the earth, taking the stars with ihcm. Tin- universe wns .1 very small affair which tho gods, who dwelt upon tho top ufOyimpus by no means n very lofty mountain— ruled over as thoy thought best. The gods themselves ven. 1 110-; vt-iy exalted beings, and had disgraceful rows amoiiif themselves, and did what seems today like some ver.-* silly a ad imprudent things. A few hundred years later, in the time of Aristotle, a more correct but very far from perfect idea of tho worM had boon obtained. Aristotle thought th:« world was spherical, although several ancient philosophors who succ?i v deil him did not agree with him. But very little was kno\vii with regard to the extent of the world In Aristotle's day. in the fourth century before Christ, and but very little more wsis knoAvu about it 1SOO' years later m the time of Columbus, lu 2,WO years the world had in reality re trograded rather than advanced. It was the popular belief in the time of Columbus that the world was flat though many cautomporaiy scholars thought different. The great «i \-iliza- rions of tho world at that time woro grouped about the .Mediterranean sea. although England was a considerable power and the Scandinavians were a great maratime people But European* at that ti-no knew but little of Asia and but little of Africa, and America of course was undreamed ot". Even a F ter Coliimbus had discovered tlie latt> j i continent he was perfect oblivious ot the fact He' thought Hayti was Ci- pango. oi 1 Japan, and for a long tune regarded Cuba as a part of the uiaii; hind of Asia. Medieval Kuropo knew but very little eastern and northeastern Asia. Man*' of the most learned co&uiographers of the time taught that Asia stretched eastward indefinitely and no one iui aginod that it had an eastern coas- washed by the ocean, it was.seriousl;- taught that Asm wnw a laud of va.v. swajnps inhabited by monster serpents and dragons. This was the opinion thai. still pro /ailed up to within 200 years 0* the time of Columbus. At this time two Venetian oivhaiu< by the name of Polo went, on a vas'. trading expedition to tho uttei'mos'. parts of ^\sia. They wore gone many years. L'pou their return tho son ol; ono of tlu'in, a yomig uiau iiamotl Marc Polo, wrote a full account of their travels, described tho empire oC the yroai Khan— the Chinese cmporor— and re- vealiKl the fact that Asia was bounded on tho oast side by a vast ocean. Ho described this eastern coast minutely. with all its vast cities and its wealth of precious- stones ami spices'. It was from reading this book tha* tho imagination of Columbus was fired aiid l:c coiK-oivc d the bold conception 01' reaching this eastern coast of Asi i by sailing toward' tho west around the earth. So when ho discovered Cuba ho had not a doubt that ho had landed upon the coast of Asia and thnt ho "ookod upon tho samo scenes thac Marco Polo had gazed upon 200 years before. Africa was an unknown continent a; well as Asia. "Tiiti! n. few years iiftc-: tho groat discovery of Columb'is no ono had sailed around it, and it was iiuite generally thought as it had beou previously thought in regard to Asia, that tho African continent extended on and on indoliuitely. It was supposed that far to tho south was the zone of heat, In Mliioh no human being couk'l live. This was by no moans au tia reasonable Inference to the audcuts They knew that the farther they sailed to (lie north the colder it grow, and thai. in the extreme north was a region o!' perpetual ice and snow. They also knew thai the farther they sailed to the south the warmer it grow, and what was more natural than for them to suppose that if they went far enough in that direction they would come upon lauds that wore parched and baned, and upon seas that boiled, whore nothing could live but salamanders. Tho ancients peopled all tho sons with horrors. Unknown and distant count ivs were to their superstition, peop'vd with "gorgons, hydras and chimeras dire." Tho distant seas were tiled with monstrous dragons and serpents, of which the sea serpent is today, perhaps a survival.The unknown oceans wore filled with whirlpools that sucked the mariners that, were sacriligoous enough to approach them into an awful death. Perhaps those superstitions, as luu.'h as any one thing, kept, the world for so many centuries au unexplored and unknown waste. wires tritii the vlndfcsifcr it % 6bse.¥- tlng station.

As soon as the vibrator gives nny Indication of disturbance the land wires are connected with a telephone, and the noise made by the traffic can then be distinctly heard, and the direction in which the movement is taking place can be determined. Tlie cryptophoue is equally effective for naval purposes. For some time difficulty was found in keeping the inside watertight and hi equallizmg the internal and external pressures, so as not to destroy the sensitiveness of the vibrating needle or the tension of the diaphram.

In the experiments in Cherbourg harbor, the regular thud of the screw of a vessel entering or leaving the harbor, over a mile away, was clearly perceptible.

Recently he happened into the office of the assistant postmaster on "Washington street "Want any errands done sir?" The man at the desk turned and looked over his spectacles at tho greasy cap covering a shocky little head which barely reached the railing. Ho saw a smutty little face, and tis, he looked closer''at the juvenile he saw his jacket was several sizes too largo for him and that his knee breche.-s hung in tatters. ""What can you do iny little niau?" inquired the official hi a kindly voice as he loked over him again with sympathetic glances. "O, 1 can run errands sir, I want a job," spoke up the visitor. "What's your name?" "Lester Mason, sir." "And where do pou live?" "Leinme see," and the little fellow put two fingers of his right hand together and surveyed them a moment; that's two, isn't it sir?" "Vos." "Well, I live at second street and Howard—at the corner." "What do you want to nut errands for?" I want to raise 50 cents and buy somo papers an' sell 'em on the streets like tho other boys." By this time a crowd of employes in the office had gathered about tho little fellow. They asked him several questions about himself, all of which hi; answered straight. A collection was taken up and when. the dunes and n'ckcls wore counted they amounted half a dollar. While the money was being raised and 20 cents, were in the- pot Lester Mason said he would come back the next day and pay back. Struck by the boy's apparent honesr. simplicity—those who had hesitated went down into their pockets and threw In their contributions. The- little fellow left tho office in quite a gleful mood. Tho boy did not return, but long bo- fore the timo he had been given up. The painful discovery was made that the good hearted officials had boon victimized, It was ascertained that tho urchin had boon playing the same game exloncively among the down town merchants, several of whom related their experience in providing him with business capital. smap difce and seasoned with pejpper and. saltpeter, and these, ,wheii flUefl into ".to tlie skins, are smoked in^ the chimney for forty-eight hours over, of cotirse. a wood fire. Germany has for centuries been the rival of Italy in the production of these historical viands. From different parts of the fatherland, and especially from Frankfort. Mecklenburg and Hamburg, come a vast variety of sausages, beginning with the "Wurstchen Garn- itiing," which are very Httld sausages used for garnishing vegetables or other dishes. The meat for them must be minced to a pulp, and if the flesh be veal 25 per cent, must be fat bacon and white bread crumbs soaked In milk. Then there are tongue sausages, into the flavoring of which powdered cloves . enter largely. The Germans are undoubted experts in sausage making, and almost every district In the country has its own favorite flavor of spice or herbs, but tho addition of bread is not patronized by German sausage makers and it is considered to detract from their goodness. Sometimes, however, it Is thought de( sirable to use it—first, because it ren- ! ders the sausage less rich, aud next because it increases the bulk. To six ' pounds of meat no more than a pound of grated bread is allowed. In every case the bread must be moistened with ', ccld milk or water and must be added 'before the mincing process is completed.—London Telegraph. (;n»tt>n»u in tjfijirDi. An extraordinary trial, known as the judicial gambling case, has just come to an abortive conclusion at Tokio. I What lent unusual interest to the case was the fact that the defendants ac' cused of illegal gambling were no min| or personages, but the president and the six judges of the supreme court. I The alleged offense with which they I wei;e charged consisted in playing cards hi a tea house with some of the ' dancing girls of the capital for partners. Owing to the high position of the accused and the fondness of the Japanese for euphemisms, the case was known in polite circles as the "ilower play matter," because the game of cards in which the judges are supposed to have been indulging was tho Japanese game of "hana-awase." or "flower-matching," so-called • because. tho cards bear representations of various kinds of flowers, which ' have to be brought Into couples by the players. Owing to the grave scandal occasioned by such charges being preferred against the very administrators and interpreters of the law, strenuous efforts were made to hush the matter up, but the accused judges, especially judge Ivojima Ikon, the president of tho supreme court, declared their resolve to have tho whole matter thoroughly sifted. The most eminent counsel on the Japanese bar were retained, and a special tribunal, called the admonition tribunal, was opened in the administrative court for the purpose of conducting the investigation. The inquiry, which was conducted with closed doors, has resulted in the court pronouncing tho defendants to be beyond the reach of prosecution. As an instance of the extraordinary excitement caused by the whole affair, it may bo mentioned that the recent resignation by Viscount. Tanaka, of the ministry, of justice, was rumored to be in consequence of the ox-minister considering the occurence of such a scandalous incident during his tenure of the portfolio of justice too disgraceful to be consistent with his remaining in office. - > 'J-'ue.lM .lliont NiiiiKiii/i': What is a sausage? The principle of making all sausages is similiar, and consists in simply chopping or mincing tho particular kind of meat employed and seasoning it with spices' or herbs of various sorts, bread crumbs, egg, salt or mustard or any of those ingredients mixed in such proportions as are agreeable. Then the whole mixture is inclosed in portions of the prepared intestines of a hog, sheep or calf, scru- puluously washed and scraped until immaculately clean. Among tho herbs employed for seasoning are shalot, onions, leeks, sago, thyme, garlic, marjoram and parsley,' and in some Idnds of sausages,besides meat, anchovies, oysters and rodhor- rings are added. Finally the blood of various animals, as the ox, pig and goose, is usod, mixed with oatmeal, broad crumbs and seasoning of various kinds. These in England are known as blood puddings, but the Americans as resolutely refuse to eat blood puddings as they do to partake of the haro. Bologua sausages aro shrewdly suspected to be made of the flesh of the ass.but they can be successfully imitated by making a mince of equal parts of pork, \ oal and lean beef. Then there aro the tasty'little Lyons sausages, of- which the oujy fault is that they are too highly flavored with garlic. The Persians-made a very palatable sausage of tho meat of a lion of mutton, chopped up with 'an equal quantity of bacon or tho fat of a sheep's tail. The rnince moat, after being seasoned, is not stuffed into a skin, but rolled into an ovoid form round a small iron skewer and the sausages are then roasted between two banks of hot ashes, the skewer being carefully turned during the operation. The famous sausages of Mayeu.ce, hi Germany, are made of pork cut into J.s tlm Stick is Jtcnt. Walking sticks have their eccentricities, as have their human companions. Sometimes whou the summer is but newly ended, and tho garrison in vase and hatrack have been heavily reinforced, the entire colony will come crashing and rattling down in' the night, and there follows a general evic tion tho next day. Weeks afterward 1 spend my days as a tale that is told a great many times,, seeking to collect the scattered remnant that is left, I onco had on alder stick so crooked that every time anyone walked across the floor, oven in a distant room, this stick would rock and tremble and fidget uneasily in its place. This happening at all hours of the day aud night, drove the whole family into a nervous fever, until at length I labeled the stick and presented to acollego museum. Some of the sticks come home ali right but in the process of domestication slowly shed their bark, so that tho hall carpet is reduced to a state of chrpnic wood yard chippiuess. Others, as they dry cut develop a malodorous odor that loads to the unanimous diagnostication that they were picked before they were ripe, and are straightway ordered forth to cremation. Somo wait until they have boon carefully sea-apod, painted with three or four coats and vanished with infinite painstaking, and then calmly split from end to end, cm-ling up at-tho -edge's of the split.

Vessel Is ftn exact facsimile of the in; which. Columbus made his first •"** age to the new world. Two hunel and twenty-two laborers and 120 Jfl assisted in rendering the opera«!I? successful. At 2 o'clock p. m . the v sel was blessed, and twenty-five m^ utes. later she glided to sea. ^ launching was a complete success tt took place amid loud cries of "i* live Spain," "ong live the king," ^ strains of the Royal march by the Sfj Ine band and enthusiastic applause of the public. The ; dimensions of th vessel are as follows: Length (f roi ! stem to stei-n), 22 meters GO centhn ters; width, 7 meters 80 centimeters- eelpth, amidships, 4.10 meters; at the stem, 8.20; at the forecastle, 4.90. Her mean draught, counting from the tipp™ line of the keel, 1.44 meters; from the lower line, 1.82 meters. The length of the ways or timbers on which the caravel was launched, called in Spanish anguilas (eels), was forty ureters. The weight of tire vessel is 12,757 tons. The Santa Maria stands in striking contrast with tlie cruiser Princess de Asturiaa built next to her, at the same yard, and with all other modern naval constructions. The lack of ornament Is such a» to cause the looker-on even if acquainted with the plans of the vessel, to fomi an incorrect idea of the skips of those days. The keel is small in relation to the length of the vessel. The curvature on the outside of the forecastle Is extremely marked. The hull has sufflcieut width to prevent orer- setting. The poop is elegant In construction, but built In strict accordance with the r;avy regulations of those elays, under which only tiro officer In command could have- a cabin, the rest of the crew being bound to sleep on deck. The greatest simplicity is observed in, the interior arrangements. The forecastle has two stories and li built with elegance and simplicity. Tn e captain's cabin^ the only one in the vessel, is relatively commodious, itg ceiling is rather low. The hold Is not very deep. The interior of the vessel will look much better when decorated according to the character of the time. This work has been intrusted to Senor Monoleon whO'Wlll be assisted bylnbor- ors of the shipyard. The hawse holes, iu the gothic style in use in that country, aro worthy of attention. So are the- fenders, which, more or less In the same shape, have boon preserved In use up to the middle part of the present century.

An account of tho ceremony iu a Cadiz paper, translated, savs: "The act was performed with grout' solemn- ty aud pompous display and attended bj the captain-general of Cadiz, Genera Butler, and many officers of high rank, in the nrrny and navy of Spain.

If you think a woman is any weaker minelcd than a man stop where you are. If you suppose that running the ,'ioust consists in paying the bills, doa't undertake it. • If you have'an idea that you'are to* ge-od for a picked up dinner, remain a bachelor. If you have found it a hard task to be happy yourself don't try to muk* anyone olse happy. Aud ii' you are marrying her for lie- figure it would be wise ou your part to watch her diet very closely. If you have chosen a pretty woman with no regard to her other qualities' halt; you nre ou the wrong road. If you 'incline to the opinion that marriage 1 makes husband and wife on^ and that you are to be made that ono, send in your regrets at once. If you arc one of those; men tlaut think ton per cent, of their income be longs to tho tap room, in heaven's iiainn let marriage alone. To the woman—If you are- oxtrcmoly fond of dancing you would do well to-marry a dancing master. If you don't feel ihat yon are quail- eel to bo a poor man's wifo, don't marry a rich one. If you are marrying for money onlf you must expect to got what money will buy. If you are going to marry a man for his looks you musn't be surprised when he gives you black enes. If you are marrying a man to refora him, it behooves you to exercise all your zeal acel patience of tlie reformer, If you are going into the thing blindly, don't hold up your hands in holy horror when you get your ey» opened. If you only contemplate taking a hut- baud hi order to gain greater freedou elon't be surprised if'he should by your example. If you have been engaged three before this, you had better wait six nientlis; perhaps this engagement iW be followed by still another.
