One of a party of gentlemen lounging In the office of a well^tnown New Orleans physician a few evenimga ago propounded a curious question, apropos of a conversation which had taken a turn' toward the bizarre, says the New Orleans Times-J)emocrat. "Doctor," he said, "wouldn't It be possible for a man' who had committed some crime, for instance, and who had strong motives for concealing his idenr tity, to permanently niter his whole appearance by modern surgical methods?" "Certainly," replied the doctor. "He could easily reduce his height, to begin with, by the removal of a couple of sections of bone from his. legs. The operation is often performed in ordinary surgery, and a man who was, say five feet eight, would look very different when, only five feet six. But he could be changed beyondi work on the face alone. His forehead could be made high and bold by the. electric needle. His ears could be mode to stand out or lie flat, just as he desired, and his nose molded inito any shape from a pug to> a high Roman. The en- tiro expression of the mouth* can D6 altered by putting deep wrinkles in each, corner, and the eyes equally transformed by modif J'ing the general direction of the brows. All the operations would be of a minor character, and 1 two months would be sufficient-for the job. At the end of that time a nmn's own mother wouldn't know him, a.nd he could revisit the seen* of his crime with impunity. The thing' is perfectly feasible, theoretically, but fortunately a few little things stand 1 in the way ol its practical operation—such things ne time and money, and the difficulty oi finding secluded quarters and a skillful surgeon wiling to lend himself to the scheme."

"Gimme it," replied the printer, eagerly, never realizing the ridiculous con trast between his size and that of even the heavy weight jockeys. Armed with the jockey's badge, he presented him self at the racetrack gate and showec his badge. The ticket taker looked at him in astonishment. "For heaven's sake," he finally blurted out, "wot do you ride—the elephant?" "There's one entered in the fifth race," was the reply, and his nerve so paralyzed the gatekeeper that he was admitted.

Her majesty, Queen Victoria, will be the first sovereign of England who ever had any money to leave to her family. All of her predecessors on the tin-one bequeathed a choice ' assortment of debts to their posterity, which parliament was called upon to make tlie. people pay. But while our queen, permitted us to be taxed for the private obligations o! George IV. and William. IV., &he- herself paid ali the debts of her father, the duke of Kent. There is food for much, speculation as to the disposition of her majesty's immense property. The bulk of it will, o course, go to the prince of Wales, ant it has been asserted that the best es tates ore entailed upom the queen's successors with thie. condition that they shall not be mortgaged or alieniated in any way.
