TO HELP EACH OTttEJR CENTRAL AMERICAN REPUBLICS WILL AGf tOGEfHER urn, tinmen, mi tout m 0£ WfiMC'S WGWh In times of Need—A Tt-eaty to That tertect. ttft* Meon Promulgated — Steps lateen To-tvard the* Fofmatlon of ft Cen- tttti Atnetlcati Jfatlon — £o*m6»& toe- dates ttcf Independence, WASHINGTON, May 27.—New treaties of far reaching importance have recently been made between Nicaragua and Honduras, and official copies have jnst been received in Washington. The treaties have been under negotiation for some time and were finally put into effect by proclamation on the 16th of last month. They are the first practical steps toward the formation of a Central American nation out of the several small republics, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Salyador and Costa Bica. The first treaty forms a defensive alliance in case of "foreign war, fan offensive alliance against common enemies. It obliterates commercial frontiers so that foreign goods once admitted to one country are free to enter the other. An express provision is made against the possibility of war between the countries by an article requiring Difference Hetween Them to be adjusted by arbitration by some government on the American continent. Article 53 is the one looking to the union in a single nation, and is as follows: "The high contracting parties sol emuly declare that they cannot and will not consider as foreign the other Central American countries, and that they will labor constantly to maintain the family bonds and the greatest cordiality in their relations, making common cause with them in case war or difficulties with foreign countries and mediating in their interne tional relations. To this end the present treaty will be submitted to their consideration, inviting them to subscribe to it as a common contract American treaty, until the arrival of the day when they shall be incorporated in a single nation." u. FORMOSA A REPUBLIC. «few« of Her Independence Received *t the State Department. WASHINGTON, May 27.—The state department has received a cablegram from Mr. Denby, United States minister to China, stating that the island of Formosa has declared her independence; that the powers have been so notified and that a government, republican in form, has been established in Formosa. This adds a new complication to the situation in the East. Before this government can recognize the Formosan independence it must be shown that a provisional government which can stand has been organized. There are great numbers of Japanese in Formosa, and it remains to be seen what course they will adopt. ] -,, * Not Taken Seriously. The dispatch of Minister Denby announcing the declaration of Formosau independence is not taken seriously at the state department. The United States recognizes Formosa as belonging to Japan, and no matter what may '• J the form of government which the revolutionists of the island may have organized, a recognition of the independence of the island would be distinctly an unfriendly act towards Japan. It is not for the United States minister to China, or to to any other country, to rec- o^nize the independence of any island in revolt. The United States does not recognize the Cuban rebels, and the movement in Formosa cannot be regarded as anything more than a rebellion against Japan. HOARD IS COMMANDER.

The Indian bureau is inclined to take this view, and, further, to hold that it may aid such schools from the fund, out of which it already contributes to some district schools certain sums for each Indian taught by them. Mr, Herrmann has formally presented the matter to the secretary i and it Will likely soon be submitted to the attorney general, as the department says it is the first time the question has come up in this shape before it. Indians on allotments, being uo'iv citizens, assert their right to enjoy a common school education. •. TORE DOWN THE FLAG. An- Canndian Militiaman Displays His tipathy to the United States.

ONE WAY TO LIVE CHEAPLY, A Scheme That Was Developed by Gallant Colonel Wllk. Joseph Tnnski, the Polish refugee, narrates many stories of the shifts to NVhich ho and his fellow exiles were compelled to resort in order to keep soul and body together. None of these is more curious and interesting than one relating to his friend, Colonel Wilk, who had been decorated by the emperor of the French for gallnut service in the French army, but who afterward found himself obliged to live upon 60 francs a mouth, It was pretty tight work, and so Colonel Wilk had to confess, but one day he met with a strange bit of good fortune. He had been out for n walk and was on his way home when a big Newfoundland dog came running down the street, pursued by a gang of boys and men, all armed with sticks. The dog, panting and terrified, ran straight toward Colonel Wilk and took refuge between his feet. The crowd drew near with loud and excited shouts. "It is a mad dog! Kill him!" A policeman, more courageous than the mob, stepped forward. "Halt!" shouted the knight of the Legion of Honor. "The dog belongs to me. It is not mad." His resolute air and perhaps the red ribbon in his buttonhole made an impression upon the policeman. "Very well," ho said, "since the dog is yours, lead him away." So said, so done. Colonel Wilk took the dog home, washed and combed it, and then went with it to the butcher's to buy it some scraps of meat. For 25 centimes the butcher gave him a fine lot, and on his way home Wilk bought a few vegetables. All these bits—bits of meat, bones and vegetables—he put into a pot together with a suitable quantity of water, and out of the pot both he and the dog made a sumptuous dinner. The problem of living was solved. Day after day, as often as his purse ran low, which was pretty often, he bought bits of meat "for his dog." Nobody Aftittfose A. Call, President. D.

Mczzofanti's Memory. Cardinal Mezzofanti had a memory little short of miraculous. Dr. Russell, his biographer, says that the cardinal spoke with the greatest ease 80 languages; that he spoke fairly well 9; that ho used occasionally, but not with any fluency, 11 more; that he spoke imperfectly 8, and that he could read 11 more. Taking, in addition, the number of dialects he used, some so diverse from the mother tongue as to constitute a different language, Dr. Russell says that the cardinal was master of no less than 111 different languages and dialects. His German was so excellent that he was 'taken for a native of Germany, while his French and English were equally pure; Dr/'Tholuok heard him converse in German, Arabic, Spanish, Flemish, English, Latin, Greek, Swedish and Portuguese at one of tho pope's receptions, and afterward Mezzofanti gave him an original poem in Persian and left him to take a lesson in Cornish. ' He knew several of the American Indian languages and nearly all the dialects of India.
