A FIRST LESSON FOR DETECTIVES.
It II Not How to Itttrrt, it thr nrt Way
to Avoiil Iteinj; HHot.il.
I had occasion a short time ago to
do sonn work under the direction of
Sujieriutendciit Byrnes ami rtreived
from him some instructions in the
business of becoming a detective.
'To accomplish the ends which we
heck in the case in which you are en
gaged." said the world famed rogue
ca teller, '-it is very imiiortaiit that
no one should suspect what you are
after, and it is of paramount impor
tance that no one shall suspect that
you are m communication with me.
Now let m give you one of the first
lessons that a detective learns. It is
not how to detect, but how to avoid
being detected himself. It very often
hapions that tteoplo who are play
ing a game for a big pot of money,
and who fear the police will spoil
their game, employ detectives to
shadow every one with whom the)
are dealing for fear that they may
lie dealing with some ono who will
expose their schemes. The first thing
a detective learns to do, therefore, is
to find out whether he is being shad
owed by any one else. To do this in
simple and easy, and yet most people
not familiar with how to do it would
say, 'Why, how can I find out if I
am being watched ?'
"All that is necessary is caution
and a little nerve. Keep your eyes
ojien for any ono whom you suspect
of following you and never go any
where where your hand would lie
exposed unless you are sure you are
not followed. If you have an idea
you are followed, pay no attention to
the person you suspect of following
you. Do not try to escape him, for
that will at once arouse his suspi
cions. Let him follow you, and to
make sure that he is really shadow
ing you after walking a block or two
turn quickly and retrace your steps.
As you pass the man you suspect
look him squarely in the eye. Re
peat this cqierution several times, and
you will be bound to make sure
whether or not ho is really following
"Of course when you know you
are being shadowed you will do
nothing to reveal what you are real
ly doing until your follower has
abandoned the chase." New York
Spilling Suit mill IIi-i-hUIiib Mirroro.
At the present day, when salt is
Fpilled at the table, some persons at
once throw some of the spilled arti
cle into the fire in order to avoid a
quarrel. Salt in many nations was
a token of friendship, and when an
Arabian desired to assure you of his
loyalty he handed you some salt and
said, "There is salt U-tween us.1'
Should he spill any of it he would
hasten to burn a jiortion as a sacri
fice to heaven and n prayer to avert
the impending quarrel..
To break a mirror to many persons
indicates the death of the person who
last looked into the mirror, or some
serious injury to that person. The
savage tribes of nearly every country
lieheved that striking either the im
ago or the shadow of any icrsitfi
meant an injury to that person. Tin y
U'lieved that the image or the shadow
represented the spirit of a pci'son.
and many are the tales told of ma
gicians who inflicted the injuries on
persons they inflicted on their im
ages. To drop a stone into water
where the image of a person was re
flected meant death or some dire dis
aster. New York Telegram.
Mamma had taken Fred and Helen
to visit an old school friend whom
she called "Jennie." On returning
homo she heard the children talking
at some length very familiarly about
"Jennie." "Whom are you talking
about" asked mamma of Helen.
"About Jennie," said Helen. "Jen
nie who" "Why, Jennie Gable."
"Well, you must not talk that way.
i You must say Mrs. Gable." "But
' you say 'Jennie,' mamma." "Yes, but
mamma docs not want her little girl
to say it." Just then Fred came for
, ward and said: "Why, of course
mamma is right, Helen. How would
it sound for any one to call grandma
. Tish?" Only people who are well uo
quainted with her, like grandpa,
ought to call her that." Youth's

To the African native the estab

though not very regular labor, and
supplying all nis own wants at tho
very smallest expenditure of toil.
Where he multiplies, however, the
British race begins to consider lalmr
of all but the highest kinds dishonor
able, and from tho moment that a
white population will not work in the
fields, on the roads, in the mines, in
tho factories, its doom is practically
sealed. It is limited to supplying
employees, merchants, contractors,
shopmen and foremen to the commu
nity. Sooner or later the black race will
lie educated to a jKiint at which it
will demand and receive a share in
those employments and in the gov
eminent. Whenever that hapjicns
the white race will either lieabsorlicd
or disappear. The nnuss will gradu
ally depart, but a few who have lost
the sense of sujieriority will remain,
intermarry and be perietuated in
the persons of a few hundred, or, it
may be, a few thousand, mulattoes

There was a debutante as lieanti

dancer as every debutante is or is
supposed to be. But this debutante,
like her sister "debs," was not over
powered with literary knowledge.
Before one of her first dinner parties
she was told that she would lio taken
into dinner by Mr. F.
"Now," said Miss Deb's mother,
"Mr. F. is much interested in histor

think you agreeable, start a discus

At dinner that evening Mr. F.,
bending over, told Miss Deb "he
heard that she had been quite the

A Kurt Mi Slmprd I. Ike n Human Hand.
I have U'fore me at this moment a
portrait of a radish, painted from life
by John Peuoy. which is an exact
counterpart of a human hand, the
leaves at the top strongly reminding
one of tho laces and frills which men
formerly wore at their wrists. The
original of this portrait grew in
sandy soil in a garden at Harlem,
Holland, in the year 1(172, and is now
preserved in spirits nnd kept in the
museum at Glandorp among other
vegetable, mineral and animal curi
osities. If the portrait is true to life,
the resem j:i:i e could not U more

the palm, the nails, etc., are all per
feet. The lingers all stand slightly
apart, just as yours would if you
were to hang your hand down at
your side and straighten them.

a human hand came into possession

Sappho killed herself by jumping
from the Lovers' Leap, a Loucaditui

were in attendance below to pick up

Through our Green boects
One evening not long since us our
reporter was lotermg along Main
street enjoying the sweet fragrence
ol his liiiv.inna, lie noticed some
thing that looked just a lute
"queer" to say tlie lrast. and like
the generous soul that he is. he
wail ts everyooily to read andjiidc
for themselves as to whether every
thing "isguhl that gliilei." or not.
A real nice looking young lady
walked paM him quite hurriedely
and crossed to the opposite side of
the street, and upon arriving in
front of one of the office buildings
on th.it side, she cast hurritd
f iances to all points of the com
pass, but not seeming satisfied she
passed on. In a few minutes she
returned and went through the
name movements. Kvcn this time
she did not seem to find what
she was looking for. The report
er's curiosity became aroused and
he concluded to watch the "pro
ceedings. The young lady saun
tered up the street again about a
block and then turned mid started
back, just as if she had left her
pocket lunik some place. When
she arrived at the building
above mentioned she turned
in and was lost to view. Prob
ably ten minutes afterwards,
"Komeo," as we will call him, pass
ed by and went through similar
maneuvers, but it seemingly did
not take him very long to get his
bearings, for he walked along softly
whistling "They're after me" and
seemed to know exactly where he
was headed for. As be neared the
same dark doorway where "Juliet"
had disappeared, he lookcdl as if
wondering whether he was not a
little too early for some appoint
ment, but seeming to think he
would rather be a little early than
late, he darted out of sight. Neither
appeared for over an hour and

The I'nited States revenue cutter
k'ush arrived at Honolulu last
Thursday morning, having on
board ex-Congressman Blount, of
Georgia who was appointed com
missioner to investigate the exist
ing conditions in Hawaii and re
port as to the expediency of the an
nexation of the islands to the
I'nited States. As soon as the
cutter was sighted off Koko Head,
at II a. in., business men went to
work, and in a short time the street
anil buildings were covered with
flags and bunting. The townspeo
ple turned out en masse. Hy 11
o'clock when the Ruse anchored in
Naval k'cw, the docks and the
streets were crowded. The mail
steamer Austrailia, which was
scheudled to leave at noon, was
held hack, and from her dock the
band of the provisional govern
incut welcomed the new arrivals
with the stiiiins of the "Star Span
gled Banner." A delegation from
the Annexation Club was hastily
formed and welcomed the commis
sioner ;it the boat landing. During
the two weeks preceeding the'ar
rival of Commissioner Blount the
lethargy of the llawaiians has
given way to action. The Civil
Rights League and the Hawaiian
Patriotic League have held fre
quent mass meetings, at which
either annexation or disfranchise
ment were the respective subjects
of denunciation. On the evening
of March L'L the day before the ar
rival of the steamship Australia
with news that the annexation
treaty had been shelved, a meeting
of white residents, numbering
fully I.'hki, was held at the large
drill shed adjoining the armony of
the provisional government, at
which an annexation club was
formed which has 12(h) members,
and speeches were made by some
of the most prominent men in Hon
olulu. Robert Wilcock, editor of
the Liberal, was made one of the
Vice-Presidents ot the club, and
wastheonly Hawaiian who promi
ently allied himself with the meet
ing. During the next week there will
arrive in Chicago all sorts n( peo
ple, from all parts of the world,
and they are all coming to assist in
making the exposition the great
success that it will be.
An entire tribe of giants from
Bolivia will be among the
lirst to arrive. These fellows are
of assorted six.es, ranging from (i
feet S to N feet 0. The giant among
the giants is an Indian named Main
ami, who clainu eight and one
half feet of frame and a weight of
4 1 K pounds. Twelve natives of In
dia iire also expected to find their
way to Jackson Park this evening.
They are strict Mahometans, and
will spend the first three days after
their arrival in giving praise to the
Holy Prophet for keeping them in
safty during their trip. Tne great
est combination that will reach the
city, however, will be the nineteen
Kuopeau maidens, who are now be
ing chaperoned across the contin
ent by Colonels W. T. C. Hyde and
Thomas Ochiltree, who will be wel
comed to Chic ig by W. I Kno.
These young ladies represent the
different types of beauty of mod
ern womanhood. They come from
different countries of Kuropc. and
will during the exposition act as
models for the International Dress
and Customing Company, which
has a "concession" on Midway
Plaisance. The International Kte.
Company was organized by a mini
tier of Chicago gentlemen for the
purpose of displaying the latest
fashions in fjdrcss to the visitors
ill th" exposition. Down it Jackson
Piirk the concern is spoken of as a
"Beauty ,Minw." Ami perhaps it
might as well Jhe called that as
anything else. In fact the central
figures will he two scor lovely
women, of whom the lirst install
ment will uriive soon. The young
ladies are said to be all that is
beautiful, as they took New York
by storm, the ad jective may not be
misused. The three who are call
ed the most beautiful are Miss
Knid Scott, of England, Miss da -rille
Rimont. of France and Miss
Ladi.ok Keihuharf, of Hungary.
Colonel Ochiltree describes Miss
Scott as "u dainty little girl with si
thoughful face, deep violet eves,
wavy blond hair, symmctical fig.
lire, and an inordinate appetite for
mixed ale." Ladi.ok Keihunhai f is
siiid to be beautiful as an huri con
jured by the god of dreams. And
she also has a reputation of be
ing possessed of a temper that is
uncontrollable. Gabrielle Rain

Another Chance tor Alar.
It was Chili dm ing the last ad

that the Cnited States consulate sit
one of the Peruvian ports has been
sacked by a mob with apparant jio
lice sanction. The ollicer i c ing as
consular agent for the United
States was bred upon and wounded
in the foot. The news comes in a
brief telegram from the I'nited
States minister to Peru. He omit
ted such essential details as the
name of the place and thr
name of the wounded ollicer, or
they were dropped from bis dis
patch in the telegraphic transmis
sion. His telegram is as follows:

Inasmuch as the dispatch comes
from Lima the impression prevails
that the scene of the outrage was
one of the interior points. This im
pression is further strengthened by
the knowledge in the department
that in many cases where the na
tives assult the .sub -eon su late, the
trouble is due, not to any antagon
ism to the country represented, but
to prejudice and ill-feeling against
the representative personally. This
is not an uncommon occurrence in
South America, or in other parts of
the world, where the acts of a mer

ed by the people, who would re
spect the acts of a citizen of the
I'nited States duly appointed to a
full consular position.

Meyerbeer has said somewhere thut
certain chords in music are purple.
What meaning can be given to this
expression Lachof tho words taken

tho linking of these terms by the
verb nnd making such a sentence asi
'this chord is purple" conveys no
idea to the mind. As well say vir
