The romance surrounding the trial

triot ninety-one years ago is one of
the dearest to the Irish heart. The
eloquence of his reply to his judges
when the death sentence was about to

kind. The passage in that address
which gives it its absolutely unique
character is his request that until his
country takes its place among the na

It may be doubted if a bath-tub iu
Jamaica is a luxury. The bath-houses
make a brave show in a row of low
brick buildings in the rear of the hotels,
each little house with a big stone tank
for a bath-tub. A New York Sun cor
respondent says of them:
I went out to see the baths on my
first day in Kingston, and was sur
prised to see a sign nailed against the
wall bearing these words:
"Gentlemen are requested not to use
soap in the baths."
"Why are gentlemen requested not to
use soap in the baths?" I asked the
hotel clerk, a dignified young woman
of dark complexion.
"Because it soils the water and makes
it unpleasant for the next bather," she
"But do your guests all bathe in the
same water?" I asked.

small. It takes all night to fill the
tanks, and the water has to last all

seventeen years of age, the eldest
daughter in a very poor but well-connected
family, and certainly not a vain
young person, for she blushes crimson
with pride and gratification when her
mother says to her: ' You wouldn't be
bad-looking if you were decently
dressed, and 1 don't think you are de
void of common-sense, or I should't
trust you alone in a modern country
house." In the course of the agreeably
and wittily told story we find her placed
in "a modern country-house" not
alone, but among fashionable people,
and exposed to temptations which fully
nistify the maternal solicitude.
And Molasses Stick to L's.
"The word sugar,-' said Mr. Uiilleby,
"is often usetl in the plural. For exam
ple, we see on a sign, 'Sugars and mo
lasses;' but we never use molasses in
that form, though there are various
kinds and grades of it as there are of
sugar. I suspect that our use of the
plural is dictated to a considerable ex
tent by a desire to make the best possi
ble showing of every tiling. Thus 'teas,
coffees, sugars,' no doubt conveys in a
general way an idea of a larger and
more varied stock than tea, coffee and
sugar would da Hut this effect would
scarcely be produced by the plural af

wrong we should be more inclined to
laugh at 'molasseses' and so, for the

In the character of Napoleon there
was little room for the gentler passion,
but Professor Sloane's Life of the Em
peror, in The Century, brings out the
one element of love there was in his
early days his affection for Mile, du
Colombier. That this could not have
been very deep is shown by the fact
that Napoleon himself laughed at it
five years later. In his "Dialogue on
Love" he says, "I, too, was once in
love," and proceeds, after a few lines,
to decry the sentiment as "harmful to
mankind a something from which God
would do well to emancipate it."
IjuIj- Kosebery's Necklace.
Some years ago an old Frenchwoman
died in a poor part of Dublin, and her
little effects were put up for auction.
Among otheroddsand ends was a neck
lace of dirty looking green stones,
which did not attract much attention.
However, a shrewd pair of Jews thought
there might be "money in it" and de

On taking it to ji well known jeweler
he promptly offered i"l,f00, which sum
they refused, and sold the necklace of
purest emeralds for 7,000 in London,
where Lord Kosebery on his marriage
purchased it for something like .'0,000.
The old Frenchwoman's mother had
been attached to the court of France,
and the emeralds had once formed part

for a moment only. Mrs. Stewart. 1
reflected, was a thorough lady. Besides
had she been dishonest, the amount at
stake was a mere lagatelle to one who
could afford to live in such a house.
She had probably exceeded the limits
of her commission, not an unusual
thing with ladies shopping, as I know
to my 110, to their husbaud's cost,
and she and Mr. Stewart would be hav
ing a little matrimonial "tiff" over the
bill. For a few brief moments I coni-

the train of thought, pictured Ella's fu- j u delusions

slightest possibility of any difference
ever arising. I learned better after

apartment. The windows struck me
as being an unusual height from the
floor. There were no chairs, except
one a library chair near the massive
table, but luxurious seats extended
along three sides of the room. 1
threw myself into the chair and tried
to push it back from the table. Botli
alike refused to stir; they were screwed
fast to the floor.
1 now awoke from my dream to the
conviction that I4fras a well, not ex-

with hands and feet, too. and, after a

proof of my insanity, lie wound up a
long monologue by telling me that Mrs.

"And who may Mrs. Hall ber" I
asked, scarce knowing what I said,
for everything seamed topsy-turvy now.
"Poor man, poor man. a bad case,"
I heard him say, sotto voce; "he has

"Yes. I know. Your good lady has

"But to-morrow is my wedding day."
"Ah, Just what your good lady said.

I looked helplessly at he doctor. My
