The full significance of Senefelder great diecorery, just 100 years ago, wa not BO much that a calcareous ston may be bitten by a weak solution o acid, so that the raised portion when greased (the surrounding parts being wet) may print in a press like a woot out—though with a scraping, not a di root downward, pressure— but it consist edin the demonstration, in the first place, that prints from its surface may be re duplicated in vast numbers Without via< ible deterioration, and in the second, and still more important, that each sue! print is practically an original. Nay, more than this. Aa M. H. P. Dillon reminds me in a panegyric on his favorite art, the greatest merit of this method ol preserving and indefinitely multiplying a drawing lies in the escape of the artisl from the traduttore traditore—from misrepresentations by engraver or by camera, indeed, when the artist has made his design upon the stone itself, each impression from it is as much the original as each and -every photographic print taken from a negative if an original and not a copy of any othei thing. Even when the artist has drawn upon transfer paper instead of on the stone (proceeding for convenience sake, which, in the opinion of some purists, is held in a measure to invalidate the name of lithography as applied to it, though not thereby reflecting in any degree on tho beauty of the work Itself), the impressions taken are still originals, inasmuch as the actual work, the artist'i own lines and dots, have in due course been transferred bodily by mechanical pressure to tho surface of the stone, and this, after it has been inked and printed from, renders each proof then taken o) equal excellence. And the point of it all is this, that until tho stone is inked and a print taken the artist's work is noi complete; so that every print does reallj become a genuine original.—M. H.

Au Episode of Feminine Fairness It Which tho Kallroaa Won. They were two pretty girls, and thej were evidently in high spirits when they entered an almost empty carette tho other day. They carefully inspected the tubes which carry tho fares along the sides of the vehicle to tho box; then each one opened her purse. "Tell you what," said tho tall one. "Let's race our nickel down, and the one that loses pays for both?" "All right, let's," said the short one. "Got your nickel ready? Got" "Mine's first I" cried tho tall one. "Five cents, please." "Why, look," cried the short one, "wo didn't start fairl Tho box is oil your side!" "Why, so it is," said tho tall one. "Funny we didn't notice that before! Let's try it over, and yon stand that much nearer tho box." Again they each put in a nickel, and they dropped into the box simultane' ously. "Who has won, I'd like to know?" said tho tall girl. By this time tha driver as well as the one other passenger was interested, and she spoke impartially to them all. But tho driver turned suddenly to his horses, and the other passenger looked out of the window, with a queer noise in his throat. "I'm sure I don't know who has won," said tho short girl snappishly, ' 'but one thing I do know—wo have each pnid 10 cents for a ride down town!" And, after the driver had been appealed to and assured them that ho could not return the superfluous coins, they rode on to their destination in si- lenoe.—Chicago Tribune. Mtno. Calve Says They Have the Characteristic* of the Conquering Race. Mmo. Emma Calve contributes a paper on tho "Conquering Race In Music" , to Tho Ladies' Homo Journal, in which she specially addresses students of vooal music. She tells of the training required for the operatic and the concert stage, tho impersonation of character, tho value of suggestions, etc., and payi this tribute to Americans: "The Americans have, it seems to me, in the field of music, and especially in the field oi vocal music, all of the characteristics of the conquering race. They are possessed naturally of the most exquisite voices, which, when properly cultivated and trained, are almost unrivaled. Thej have indomitable energy, perseverance and pluck. They stop at nothing and are deterred by no trouble and prevented by no obstacle. "Poverty, weariness, exertion, hard work—none of these living specters 'which affright and terrify the average art worker has terrors for them. Their physique and their temperament seem made for toil and to surmount discouragement, and the success which they are daily achieving, in the field" of both I operatic and concert singing, is testimony to their natural fitness for accomplishment and to their ability to excel. They seem, in fact, to bo most lavishly fitted by nature for the parts they are assuming. To these gifts of voice, energy, pluck and perseverance they frequently add a beauty of face and grace of form and movement which the public recognizes as most important factors in the success of the singer's career. They have, too, the temperament which makes groat artists and great actresses, the artistic feeling which has for its standard perfection and which is sat isfled with nothing less."

FOB ALL WOMEN of 1 all the pain and sickness from which women suffer Is caused by weakness or derangement In the organs of menstruation, Nearly always when a woman Is not well these organs are affected. But when they are strong and healthy a woman is very seldom sick. The Tumble Weed. Tumble weeds spread themselves iu a Wholesale, fashion. Instead of sending the separate seeds out into the world with wings or hairs to carry them, the whole plant breaks off near the root, when these are ripe, and goes rolling along the ground before the wind. The bare, sun scorched deserts of the great west produce several tumble weeds, and there are some in the prairie region. It is natural that they should bo most abundant where there are no hills nor trees to stop them in their course. But we have one tumble weed in the east— the old witch grass, so called maybe because it rides the wiud like an old beldame. In September this grass spreads its head, or panicle, with hair] ike, purple branches, in every sandy field. When the seeds ore ripe, the plants are blown across the field, often piling up in masses along fences and hedgerows. As might be expected, the hair grass, which has so effective a way of spreading itself, is found throughout the United States from ocean to ocean,—Thomas H. Kearney, Jr., in St. Nicholas. His First Story. A certain author, now well known to fame and fortune, once in tho "battle for bread," wroto a wild Indian story for a northern story paper. That was 12 years ago, and to the story he gave his real name. He received a fat cheek for it, but year after year went by and—the story never appeared. It finally passed from his remembrance, until the other day, when ho received a letter from tha publishers informing him that it would shortly put iu an appearance in serial form. That made the author nervous, and he forthwith sent the following telegram : "Suppress story and return manuscript and will pay three times amount of original check." The publishers replied: "Oan't do it. We know a good thing when we have it. The story is in yout best vein. " Letter after letter, telegram after telegram .passed, but no, he didn't have money' enough to buy that story. So he has written to all his friends and critics and has explained the circumstances and now awaits as cheerfully as possible the weekly slaughter of the red Indians of his youthful brain.—Atlanta Constitution.

"Oh, mamma," she exclaimed, "I Ban spell umbrella." ' 'I hardly think so," said her mother. "But I can," she insisted. "Very well. How do you spell it?" "A-h-s," she said promptly"Why, Florence," contended the mother, "that doesn't spell umbrella." "Yes, but jt does," she urged. "I saw it on papa's umbrella, and I'd like to kupw why it would be there if it spelled $onjejhing else.

Robert Chambers told me he was once talking with a man of real, rugged genius, who came to a sorrowful end. He said to the genius: "The population oi this world is about 1,900,000,000 human beings. Tho little religious body to which you belong contains perhaps 800,000. Of that number not 800 could give an intelligent account of its creed. Yet you think its creed sets out vital matters. Is it consistent with your belief that God Almighty would permit just 800 of his creatures to know those things and keep all the millions ignorant of them?" The genius considered for a minute's space, then replied, "Yes, I think it quite right that God should do that." Whereupon the good Robert Chambers said very resolutely, "Then I'm tremendously sorry for you." And he never spoke to the genius save on transient incidents any more.—Long, man's Magazine. Reproachful. "I haven't anything new to sina to you tonight, George." •• "Well, give me something old then," She broke into a refrain that was "a song of the day" 17 years before. "That's very, very old, Clara," »he remarked at the close. "Yes, George, I sang that to you the night we became engaged. "—Bostow Coal Mine Worked by One Man. The smallest coal mine in the world is in the southern province of New Zealand, where, according to the reports of the inspectors of mines for the colony,the Murray Creek colliery is worked by one man, T. Bolitho, a Chinaman, who owns, manages and works this small but to him valuable coal mine. There is another small colliery in the same province worked by one man with the assistance of a donkey. The next smallest colliery is in England, in the village of Nelson, in Lancashire. It is situated near the Colliers' Arms and affords employment for two miners, father and son, who combine in themselves tha positions of proprietors, managers, miners and haulers of the undertaking. The have the assistance of a donkey, and all the output of the mine is sold to the householders who live in the village or its immediate vicinity.—Exchange. An Unexpected Greeting. The gentle Elsie sat drearily in th gloaming in the front room. She was very miserable, for on th previous night she had had words with her own, and now she fears her haughtj Harold will not call. She hears a step, a ring, a voice sh knows, and some one speaking to th servants in the hall. She will not wait until a light i brought, but gently calls, "Come in." The visitor enters, and, with a sigh of awful volume the fair Elsie oasts her self into his arms and softly murmurs "Oh, my darling, I am so glad you have come. I have so wanted to make it up and settle." And he of the embrace remarked: "Well, miss, it's very nice of you, and I'm very glad, too, that you're going to settle up at last." It was the gas col lector.—Spare Moments. TAX SALE NOTICE.
