The most approved fashion for a Quilez driver is to roll his trousers well up above the knee, without shoe or stocking, don a mackintosh, and he is thoroughly equipped for a heavy storm. If he is not lucky enough to own a mackintosh, it doesn't seem to matter much, for he takes the rain as a natural consequence and says nothing.

The following has been often quoted, but it cannot be too widely known. Jl is an account in Coleridge's own words of how he wailed into the fatal habit of using opium: "I wrote a few stanzas twenty-three years ago, soon after my eyes had been opened to the true nature of the habit into which I had been Ignorantly deluded by the seeming magic effects of opium in the sudden removal of a supposed rheumatism attended with swellings in my knees and palpitations of the heart and pains all over me by which I had been bedridden for nearly six months, tfnhapplly among my neighbors and landlord's books were a large parcel of medical reviews and magazines. -I had always a fondness—a common case but most mischievous turn with reading men who are at all dyspeptic—for dabbling n medical writings.and in one of these met a case which. I fancied very like my own, in which a cure had been effected by the Kehdal black drop. In an evil hour I procured it; it worked miracles—the swellings disappeared, he pains vanished; I was all alive, and all around me being as ignorant as my- elf, nothing co'uid exceed my triumph, talked of nothing else, prescribed the lewly discovered panacea for all com- •plalnts and carried a .bottle about with me, not to lose an opportunity of administering instant relief and speedy cure to all complainers simple and gentle. Need I say that my own apparent convalescence was of no long continuance? But what then? The remedy was at hand infallible.

'B weekly review of trade says' ^^ars and not facts made a war in south Africa seem a menace to prosperity here, and a week of conflict has cleared away the fear. British markets for securities have 'been helped by the belief that mining shares would be worth more with no Boer control in mining regions, and large purchases here of ammunition, packed meats and other army food have swelled the balance due this country. Money markets have grown less embarrassing, stocks have gradually advanced, Industries are still supported by a volume of demand for which no precedent can be found, and payments through the principal clearing-houses for the last week have been 36.6 per cent larger than last year and 57.3 per cent larger than in 1892. So great an increase shows the net result of many and potent forces making for public prosperity.

Miss Emery had married a college friend of his. Where did he keep that picture now? "Now, Kitty," said her uncle, "run away and don't worry about Mr. Right. He'll be your ideal, I'll promise you." "Well, well," he said, as she left the room. "I thought she'd see through the joke. Guess I'll let it go now. My experience is that If you want a couple to marry, make them think it impossible and then nothing can prevent them. iBut she'll go and fall in love with the man I want her to, thinking Mr. Right which she balances gracefully on-her head, and this answers a double purpose—keeps her cigarette from being put,put by the rain and also preserves the freshness of the vegetables which are to supply the family for at least 12 hours.

That cod eat young lobsters is a fact established to the satisfaction of a writer in an exchange quoted by the Facts About tho Twelfth Centnry. The nineteenth century closes with the year 1900. Immediately after midnight, therefore, of Dec. 31, 1900, is when the twentieth century begins.' In other words, it begins with the first second of the first hour of the first day of January, 1901. The twentieth century will open on a Tuesday and closes on a Sunday. It will have the greatest number of leap years possible for a century—twenty-four. The year 1904 will be the first one, then every fourth year after that to and including the year 2000. February will three times have five Sundays—in 1920, 1948 and 1976. The twentieth century will contain 36,525 days, which lacks but one day of being exactly 5,218 weeks. The middle day of the century will be Jan. 1, 1951. Several announcements are made of changes to be inaugurated with the opening of the new century. The first of importance is that Russia will adopt the Gregorian calendar. This will be done by omitting thirteen (lays, the amount of error that will have accumulated after the close of February, 1900. The Russians will then write Jan. 1, 1901, instead of Dec. 19, 1900, or rather, instead of both, according to the dual system now in vogue in that country and in Greece. The other important announcement is that it is not at all unlikely that the astronomical day, which now begins at noon of the civil days, will begin with the civil day, at midnight. The present method of having the astronomical beginning of the civil day is apt to be : confusing. On the other hand, to have the former begin at midnight, just when astronomers are often busiest, will be to them somewhat inconven* lent. . ---- week have been 190 in the United States, against 226 last year, and 23 in Canada, against 24 last year." Bradstreet's says: "As regards the current activity in transportation, it may be said that east-bound traffic from Chicago in the last month has been more than double that reported in the same period a year ago, and nearly twice as large as that reported in October of 1892 a record period of good trade. Among leading products decreasing in price, tin and copper, among the metals,' have been most notable, the latter claimed to be due to production approaching more to a parity with demand. The situation of iron and steel is perhaps the most notable one yet presented. The feature of the market is the reported booking by the stee : rail mills of the country of nearly 75 per cent of their capacity for next year's delivery, in all 1,500,000 tons of rails are reported to have been booked.. "Wheat (including flour) shipments for the week aggregate 6,416,495 bushels, against 4,100,618 bushels last week and 5,560,991 bushels in the corresponding week of 1898. Corn exports aggregate 4,525,519 bushels, against 5,058,697 bushels last week and 2,424,376 bushels In this week a year ago." for its location. The plan was sert ously discussed at the meeting of the executive council of the federation la this city last week, and it was announced that offers of land and ol large cash contributions for the buildings had already been made by Chica- goana. The executive council Instructed Samuel Gompers to go to Chicago at once to look over the ground and pre- iare a set of definite recommendations. He will be there next week, and give much time to a careful study )f the possibilities. His report will >e made to the coming convention of he federation in Detroit next Decem- >er, when final action will undoubted- y be taken. The proposal of the federation is broad and will have great Importance for labor interests generally. When executed It will mark a decided advance in the development of labor organization in this country. It is hoped that in time all the national labor union's will be brought into line, and that with their headquarters all placed together they may be helpful to each other in a higher degree than ever before.

It shows 3,483 divorces granted in the year, which was over 10 per cent of the number of marriage licenses issued in the same period. Plans for Kaiser.

A dry dock is to be constructed that will entirely obviate the necessity of using the docking facilities at Hong- Kong, and the accompanying machine shops are to be complete in every particular. The matter will be laid before congress during the next session, and an appropriation asked for that will enable the department to carry out its full plans in this direction. Supports Expansion Policy. Terre Haute, Ind., Oct. 30.—Francis T. Roots of Connersville, a prospective candidate for governor, delivered an address before the Indiana State Normal school Friday, in which he spoke in positive terms in favor of expansion. He said the people showed their approval of this policy when the president was on his recent tour of the west. He declared that the United States could not wisely give up the Philippines. He believed the people were just beginning to realize the vastness of the commercial prospect in that direction. Dewey took after the civil war, in tha Mediterranean^, on the old ship Canandaigua. The war fever had died out, and men frequently deserted. On men- of-war, boats cannot be lowered without an order, except in case of a man overboard. Several malcontents in tha crew one night, therefore, raised tha "man overboard" cry, lowered a boat and scuttled off into the darkness. Dewey was executive officer of the ship] and was called from his berth. Though even then particular as to dress, he didn't care about uniform when tnere was quick work to be done, and he appeared clad only in his night shirt. He rushed up to the quarter-deck in half a gale of wind and promptly took command in spite of his curious appearance. He knew his men thoroughly, and acted promptly in spite of the darkness. "Come back here, Jim Brown, Tom Robinson, and the rest of you," he shouted, and punctuated hii remarks with three shots from his revolver. The shots, the ghostly figure on the quarter-deck, and the sudden use of their names startled the men into obedience, and they came sneaking back to the ship, while Dewey and hia novel uniform retired once more below. All the telegraphs and telephones in Australia, and nearly all the railroads, are controlled by the government. Ask For the Host Reading.
