THE JOUBNAI* IN A NEW HOLE. Emperor William's Gallant Work at a Fire, The Kaiser Chops Away Roofs, Helps the Bucket Brigade and Aids in Saving a Village. A HOVAL F1HK FIOHTKIt. POTS:>A.M, May 7.—It isn't often that the pi-oplu of lititow have an emperor for 11 tireimin, but they had one just before noon when limperor Williiim vied with the humbleht citizen of tho town to see which could do the most work la saving tlio property of tlie people. Uutow id a village near this city, surrounded by a number of prosperous farmers. "The fire started in one of the dwellings in the town, and. there be- in£ no means of checking it, soon made fj-reat, hea J way. Word that Oatow was in flames was soon conveyed to William, whu was at the now" palace- Ho called for his horse and while it was belnpr prepared for him he alarmed the Spandau garrison and summoned assistance from the fire department of Uerlin, ordering engines to be dispatched at once. Then he rode at full gullop to Gatow. Tb« SoYorr>lKti'» Noblo Work. Onco there he minfflcd with the men of the village who were fighting tho fire, and his extraordinary daring and apparent recklessness thrilled and dazzled the people. The emperor seized an ax and led the villagers on a new line of defense. He boldly entered housa after house from which the smoke was pouring- and came out only after having do'no good worlc within. The flames from one building were threatening another, when the emperor climbed to tho roof and amid the smoke chopped away at a projecting portion of the structure until he hod cut it off and so saved the adjoining 1 building- from taking fire. A shower of sparks fell around him, and he cut a noble figure as he swunjf his ax OTCI- his head and lopped off tho dangerous boam. Initplrocl OtL«r». His courage and his high bearing incited the villagers to great performance, and they now began to give battle 'to the flames with renewed vigor. When tho emperor came down from his fiery field he helped the women to carry buckets of watrr and In many other ways assisted in subduing the flames. His presence and his work went far toward saving the village from total destruction, afutc it would surely have met had he not come. Helped tho llomeloii. When the worst was passed his majesty was foremost in organizing parties for the succor of those who had been rendered homeless by the flrn. Entire command of the whole work was, of course, at once surrendered to him, and the soldierly and prompt fashion in which he laid out plans and executed them won for him the admiration of everybody who suvr him work. A SERIOUS CHARGE. Saut'lirrn G. A. K. Posts Said to Have MUupproprlilted Uonnttonft. MILWAUKEE, May 7.—Commander J. A, Watrous, of the Wisconsin department G, A. K., has raado the sensational statement that of tens of thousands of dollai-s sent to two southern grand army posts during recent years by northern veterans ouly a small portion was ever devoted to tho purpose for which it was given, namely: The decoration of the graves of union soldiers buried in the south. Most of the money, said Col. Watrous, has apparently been put into a new memorial hall at Richmond. One of the posts that is accused of thus misappropriating funds Is located at Richmond, the location of the other is not stated. Veterans are warned against giving any further aid to those posts who have heretofore solicited money for the work of decorating graves. Col. Watrous says hundreds of women's relief corps have boon swindled out of small sums by these posts since the alarm was lirst raised in the G. A. posts some time ago. Tlio Totirixtn AIIVC.

Such In tlio Cunt to < olli.rt IIncl« Siiro'N Ilitvuimt! nt Coriiiln Poliil- According to the ropurl of tho supervising special agont of the treasury ilu- partment, :is contained in tho finance report, of thu socrcl.ury of the treasury, there are certainly a number of ollices in the customs service of tho country that ought to bo abolished. Thosu arc the ports or alleged ports of entry :it which the exix;ns«s of collecting duties greatly exceed the receipts, or where there arc no receipts at all. There are a number of such, B.nd though there is no revenue from thorn there is of course expense more or loss considerable. Now York actually collects seven tenths of the entire customs revenue of the country, and with but one exception docs it at a lower average cost than any port in the country. Last year it collected 8138,032,031. IS at an expense of $2,70:2,300,57, There were employed 1,73,'i persons, and the proportionate cost of collecting one dollar was one and nine-tenth cents. Des Moines, la., operated under the lowest expenses. One man is employed there, and he collected ?0,!j-M.00 at an outlay of $105.43. or one and six-tenths cents per dollar. This is an exceedingly good showing, particularly when contrasted with r.ho expenses elsewhere. The most out ragx'ous exhibition of extravagance is observed at tho port of Tuquina, Ore., where it costs proportionately $4,415.04 to collect one dollar. Tlioy have a collector there who drew during tho fiscal .year of 18(W a compensation of $1,002.05, and in return for this handed over to tho revenue tho sum of twenty-live cents, Natchez, Mass., comes next on tho list, the proportionate cost of collecting a dollar there being $1,001, Tho collector of Natchez turned in last year fifty cents to the treasury 'and was compensated to tho extent of $SOO. DO for his vast labor. Annapolis, Md., stands rather high in tho list of unproductive ports, it costing there f.'!93.r>:! to collect a dollar. Tho expenses were PJ34.SO and the aggregate receipts S- :i.j. Other high cost places and the proportionate amount of expense for the collection of one dollar of revenue are: Tooho, La., $3-14.88; Cedar Keys, Flo., $±;0.r>S; Kenncbunk.'Me., $1">7.84; Kock Island, 111., $37.S3; Nowbcrne, K. C-, S71.04; Cape Charles City, Va., SCO.SS; Burlington, la., $31.91; Castine, Me., 833.41; Georgetown, S. C.,S:i4.10, and La Crosse, Wis., &!•}. There are quite a number of sinecures in the service, >vhero men arc retained and remunerated for their services without collecting a penny of revenue. In this category, with the amount paid to the customs otliccr in charge, are the following: Coos Day, Ore., S1.S32; Beaufort, N. C., SI, 132; Crisficld, Md., 52,.W8.38; Tappahannock. Va., S533.U4; ^ng Harbor, N. Y., S41H.GO; York, Mo.. ?2",0.02; Paducah, Ky., JK">0; Galena, 111., $:!.">0; Chattanooga, 'lonn., 5402.30, and Bristol and Warren, Iv. I., S1SO. The expenses o.f collecting- the revenue at certain offices, while not proportionately largo per dollar, run into largo amounts and consume the entire proceeds and instances cause deficits in the receipts of tho office. Thus, at Corpus Christ!, Tex., it costs S20.0TS to collect $10,903; at Gloucester, Mass., $13,201 to collect $12,204; at Norfolk and Portsmouth, Va., 513,603 to collect S13,OB1; at Wuldoboro, Me., fS,-I01 to collect 55,832, and at Wilmington, N. C., $10,577 to collect $10,514.—N. Y. Herald. —A destitute author is said to have gone to Dumas pens once (says Life's Calendar) and threatened to suffocate himself and his three children unless Dumas could let him have three hundred francs at once. Dumas rummaged his coffers thoroughly, but could only find two hundred francs. "But I must have three, or I and the little loves are lost." "Suppose you only suffocate yourself and one of them, then," said Dumas. _____ --Shady—"The rascal called mo a liar!" Bright--"And so he has got onto it? And a stranger, too!
