Maaa. • CLUBS AND Club Life in Paris," by Edward King, is one of the most striking and interesting articles in the January number of The Cosmopolitan. "A Battle with the Sioux," a beautiful illustrated article by L. B. Platt, describes a savage encounter between the Sioux and the Pawnees. "The Book Auction" contains novel and interesting facts collected by Joel Benton. Viola Koseboro, in a beautifully spntro us the millions of- <••"•'„ it.., uvuutry-, Use pliice of birth has a warm and cosy spot In their hearts. Let adversity come, or bereavement, or distress of any kind, and the heart yearns for the sympathy of olden friends, as Judah at Babylon wept over the memory of Zion. Nor is that all. One unconsciously finds himself defending his home; even though bis Intelligence tells him that it is Inferior to other regions in material wealth and progressing intelligence, he finds points of excellence and rejoices at each fresh discovery. An item of news about his old home is more interesting than any occurrence elsewhere, and ns be is attracted by sight of bis name unywhere, so, too, mention of his olden home causes him to rivet attention upon what Is said, or written, or printed about it. Tierra del Fuego Is one of the most desolate of regions; the savage inhabitants shiver around poor fires in half nude rendition. Frequently famines decimate their numbers, and during, theirj'pre- valence, the people eat up the older r illustrated article oif "The~Italianfn>f . Qnea> gons eren devourlng their par New York."gives picturesque glimpses of a people that are now occupying much attention. The lovers of fine illustrations will find those accompanying Mrs. Elisa W. Peattie's powerful story of "The Crime of Micah Rood" unusually excellent. "An Orphan in Japan" is another po.werful story of Mrs. Katharine B. Foot. "The Ue- markable Courage of Abdias Muller," by T. Comb, is a humorous story. Richard A. Proctor answers in the affirmative the question, "Have Ghosts Been Seen?" Poems arc contributed by Helen Gray Cone, Frank Dempster Sherman and others.' ~ Mns. Jortx A. Logan, it ia.-said, has aged greatly since her husband's death. We never knew a woman so t' oroughly devoted as she to her husband's advancement "" She really possessed the greater ambition, and constantly incited him to aspire higher. She lived for him. Of a sex to whom is forbidden distinction and eminence in politics, she, owning talent that would Qt her for any place. Senator, cabinet officer or President, she consecrated them to her husband's greatness, and became literally a part of himself. She studied law, politics, human nature and was an •host in herself. She transacted a good- Ijfshare'ofhja business and aided him in all his work. Of sanguine temper and most happy in her life, thought of death rarely came to her and if it did she always thought that he would sur- vlve her, he was so strong, so brave, so rugged. When he was taken away she was, not only overcome of inconsolable grief, but she was stunned utterly. Eminent as was her husband the saw ahead of him much greater distinction. The writer recalls a con versation had with this' most distin guished and estimable lady, wherein she revealed in some measure her .as plrations. They were all for him, and in view of the affection in which he was held by the great army of soldiers and the hold he had upon his party and the confidence of all in his integrity her ambition to see him occupy the chair once tilled by Washington • was based upon strong probability of gruti liciition. There was nothing selfish in this: it was all for him whom she loved with rare devotion. When he died there was no mourning over what now could not be; not a thoirgfit. of wha might be to her through the changed condition of things entered her pun •oul. The light of her soul, the joy o her life was gone. Some time la'.er shi was lamed in an accident, and he mourning over the death, of her bus band had so affected her strength tha that which a few short years ago would have cause? but a brief illness, has no yet been overcome and her friends {see with pain that her old strength and en durance that so excited their admira tlon in gone. Love for her children • for she is a devoted mother, causes earth yet to have ties toibind her to it but her thoughts are fixed most and oftenest upon him who when at the very pinnacle of distinction was snatch ed from her, and when In H s time, He shall call her, the summons will no bring terror, because she then will re join the partner of her life. It is no thought that death is to be any means imminent; she may live yet many years but it is that the old-time perfec health, infinite zeal and tireless 'energy no longer marks her. • The incentive is withdrawn, she lives in the love of htr children, and in the memory of ttu days of continuous successes and victor ies and tireless happiness with it all. . THERE is oae thing a man is never ashamed of, and that is bis native land It ia not possible that one could reside in hia native place until hutwrnity-firs* birthday, say, and ever afterwards eith er forget or lose Interest in the home of his early life. He may hall from Po land, or Portugal, Spain or Switzerland - Greenland or Greece, it matters not Never was there man with aoul so dea< that his heart has never within him burned as home his footsteps he has turned from wandering on a foreign strand (Scott, made into prose). Pul>- lio men are spoken of as hailing from this or that State, as they may chance - to be resident at the time. Thus, it is said," Elaine, of Maine; but this distin guished American thinks of himself as & Pennsylvanlan, and the warmes place in his heart is the old Keystone State, Senator Hawley, of Connect! cut, ia moat careful to let* his friends know that North Carolina was bis birthplace and his home until he was tea years old. Whatever a region may be to another, to the man who was born ia it, it has the close and intimate as sedation of life among friends and true friends, too, and friends that seem closer than others because they were made when the receptive bralo was a its tw»t capacity to receive durable an enduring UnprMaiou*.

Si.— Th« civilians raiding on the island upon which is situated Fort Westmoreland, in Quoenstown harbor, haying made Ixmflrn of tar barrels to celebrate, the release ot Mr. O'Brien from Tallamor* Jail, the government has decided upon their eviction! and orders will be, issued for their ejectment forthwith. TTiA Pop* ftaub* Don Carlo*. ROME, Jan. '.13. —The pope has refused to receive Don Jaime, §oa of Don Carlos, either privately or officially, though he i* the bearer of a jubilee gift consisting of a valuable cross of diamonds. The American btahopa now here have advised his holinow not to condemn th« Irish national movemuut. ents. Humane people In England once took a youth from his barren and in- icspitable home and comveyed him to England, where he was placed in a de ightfully pleasant home and afforded 11 the advantages of education. He was an apt student and readily received nstruction. He was petted much, and after ten years, had apparently grown nto forgetfulness of his old home. It was then proposed that he leturn as a missionary to teach them religion and ivilization. He eagerly accepted. After three years, friends called upon lira, and found htm, if possible, more wretched than his family and friends; be had dropped the dress of civilization; and married one of hla acquaintances and hud but a hovel for his home. But indignantly rejected a proposition to go back to England. He was con- ;ented; he was at home; and he loved t far more than Albla's Isle with all ts splendors. So," too, Eblerling and other Eskimo, who have been induced .to visit the United States, have been afflicted greatly of home-sickness, and would not be content until they returned to their land of eternal snow and ice, where their food of flesh of walrus, seal and bear is obtained only by dint of most unremitting quest in air-of iutt'nseat-cold—and for mauy mouths when their portion of earth Is locked in constant darkness. Hut ii was their home, and as Payne has It, There is no place like home." Nothing but desire to get, to have, hold and keep gold induces men to depart their country and make home among strangers; and It Is likely nine in ten who emigrate, comfort themselves In the thought that after a few years, as the Chinese do, they will return again and spend their earnings and the remainder of their days with their people. Of course, few ever do return. In their new homes, other attachments, are formed; the expected fortune does not come, or if it does, it never gets big enough. Still, though away, and still, though, he never return again, away down deep in hia heart is the home feeling, and when In wakeful mood of meditation, it is the childhood home that troops before him, with the vivid scenes of earlier years. E. C. Lewis, of Ottawa, 111., is a Republican candidate for auditor of that state. Another blizzard, tha fourth this winter, is nareering over the prairies of the northwest.

There is no change to note In the situation along the Reading railway. Some observer* profess to see a disposition to weaken cropping out among the miners.

The Public Libraries Doing; Immense Good for Fntttre Generations. To uncertain what the grent army of New York's young folks read, a reporter visited the leading libraries of the metropolis and conversed with the librarians and renders. It la a mistake to suppose that the children, are not critical, and will read everything put before them; on the contrary, they are the most critical and exacting of all readers. "At what age do children ask you for books?" wns asked of a librarian who lias made a study of children's literature. "Well," answered the. lady, smiling, "our rules do not permit the giving of books to children under 12 years of « but so artxtous are the little thlngH to read that many of them come here on the day before their 12th birthday so as to make sure of the reading privilege. Many of the books taken out are actually reud by younger "brothers and sisters not 12 years old." .At the Apprentices' library the writer was informed that a number of children only 10 years old were readers of books. The boys seem to be the greatest devourers of books. Some regularly read one book a day, and would read more if allowed. The boys are especially fond of history, fiction, titles of. travelers and sea stories. One little tot recently asked for a book "where they fight on water." The girls are also very fond of fiction and fairy tales. It Is fount! that the boys not only read much faster tbon_ the girls, bat read more of Hie Boliu"cliS5r of.~llt«Ttt- tnre. The majority of girls read romances, especially sensational ones. Some of them like poetry, for which boys as a rule do not cnre. A small percentage of tbe boys read books of popular science, and works which may be useful in trade and business. This class of reading is almost entirely neglected by the girls. Boys read a good deal of the standard litera. tnre. Dickens is very 'popular among them, but where the taste for higher lie erature is nt all developed American authors like Irving and Cooper come in. for a good share of popularity. Books and magazines containing plct ures are In very much demand by both sexes. Children do not care for so callei religions or Sunday school books. Books which attempt to convey moral lessons o; the goodey goodey kind are given the cold shoulder. One of the librarians as sured the writer that such booki would never be read if .the youth ful readers were not sometimes mis led by the authors. There docs not seem to be any special difference of taste caused by The varying nationalities of the children's parents. Children of German parentage form a large proportion of the readers, and it is noticeable that no matter what the parentage of the children is the latter all prefer books in the Eugllsl language. Colored children are also num bored among the readers. Children 01 Tcvrlsli parentage seem to be especlall; fond of reading books In which thing that may lie useful to them In trade or business are combined with amusemen or set ,J o rth in an attractive, popular form. There is a considerable love of ar among children, not of course' of art a art, but the pictures and woodcuta. .Some boys are careless and soil books but as a rule th<?y are fairly clean wit] them; but girls are far cleaner and neate tban the boys In this respeet. Of cours boys, if permitted, would read the hlghl sensational "blood and thunder" tales and girls would read the highly seasonex sensational romances, but all such book are carefully kept out of the public libra rles. When the taste for good literature Is once awakened the boy and girl find n difficulty In satisfying It.—New Yorl Press. .' 8cene on the Bowery. There was a queer scene on the Bower B day or two ago, when one of theclothin houses gave away 1,000 overcoats to poo boys, demanding a quarte^from each boj for some wise reason not clearly e: plained. The little gamins who sell th papers got most of them. Possibly yo think that was good, and that they woul be snug and warm this winter. Well, don't know. They are, beyond andabov all other, the. strangest part of our popu lation. They are like little rats dr foxes Their origin Is easy to get at; they are th children of love, of paupers, of vaga bonds, and of the squalid tenement tils trlcts. Thousands either have no homes or else don't go to thorn, bat live in lodg ings, newsboys' homes, and in wagons garrets, cellars and tho general poke hole of the city. The bootblacks are thei brothers and chums, and live In the sam way. They all smoke;—either etuinps pinked up, or cigarettes at two for a ceui Their stoves are the gratings over boiler under the streets; their dissipation is attendance of the galleries of the cheapcs variety shows; their best fan is found i: fighting. "They are wild beasts," said the cler in the publication office of a newspape the other day. "They are devoid of affec Mou and gratitude. They swear at you : you speak kindly to them, run away from you if you offer them advice, jeer at yo if you are weH dressed and pass a grou of them. If we take pity on them and In vile them into the press room in col weather they break the-windows, liac the woodwork and even go so far as t< take stones or weights and break th heaviest Iron work. While they wait i the office to bny papers they dig trenchc In the counters with the steel pens an break the holders in two. One day one o the clerks gave one of these boys a good derby hat that he bad tired of. Anothe clerk asked the boy why he did not sa 'Thank you.' 'A-a-»-h,'the boy replied •'go chuck your mother overboard 'What are yon going to do with the hat: the clerk asked. 'Sell It in Baxter gtree for fifteen cents, 1 he replied, 'and pla crnso wld da money.'"—Julian Ralph New York letter.

COK. ON SUBSCRIPTIONS. Tenting Colored Candjr. To test candy with respect to polsononf colors one needs a few ounces of alcohol, about an ounce of bleaching powder in solution (hypochlorlde of calcium), a little white woolen yarn and a- small bottle of aqua ammonia. See first whether the color can be dissolved out by alcohol. If It can, Immerse the woolen yarn in the solution, and should the color adhere to the yarn and dye it, the probabilities are that it Is a coal tar color; If a red, it may contain arsenic. If tho alcohol produces no effect apply a drop of the bleaching powder solution to the surface of the sweetmeat. — If the color fades out, It is probably of vegetable origin and harmless.—New York Tribune.
