break. No other senator In American his
tory has advocated more measures which
succeeded or fewer that failed than Mr. Ed

more talk of his retirement than of any
others when his letter to Governor Carroll
S. Page, of Vermont, appeared. Ho gave
its n cause, "considerations entirely per
sonal," nnd Indulged In u brief, dlgnllled
sentence of thanks to Vermont and one of
farewell to the senate.

"Caran d'Acho" is tho pen name of tho
most popular caricaturist in Franco today,
who is a new man und half Russian. Ills
assumed name, is
simply a divided
form of tho Rus
sian word "caran
dache," meaning a
lead pencil, and
bis name Is Eman
uel Poire. His
grandfather was
an olllcer In tho
French army that
Invaded Russia
and mi Ho red so
much. Ho fell in
love with a Mus
covite lady, and
man led her after
CAltAN d'aciii:.
tho war closed, but lirought up his son its
a Frenchman, and at tho agu of eighteen
his grandson left Moscow to servo his legal
term in tho French army.
Them ho amused himself and comrades
by drawing free and often satirical sketches
of tho olllcers, ijuarturs, etc., and as It
was not best tho bold artist should Imj
known, these sketches wero simply marked
"Caran d'Aclie." In time, however, they at
tracted the attention of artists, anil when
Edwaid Detaillu saw them ho promptly
sought tho youth and urged hlmtoglvo up
nil else for art. He Is now overwhelmed
with requests for work, and does much for
tho English ami American papers. His
greatest ambition Is to mako tho French
comics at onco as lively as tho best, and as
pure In moral tone as tho English. HLs
home at Pussy, near tho Hols do Boulogne,
Is a perfect museum of oddities, Including
tho military gear of all tho nations.

Mr. .1. A. Browne, of Bloomlngton, Ills.,
Is at present in New York city as tho rep
reventallveof his mother. Hannah Browne,
who has a strange story which she wishes
to prove in court. Tho old lady seeks
possession of the estate of tho lato Charles
Furrar Browne, better known us Artomus
Ward, on thu ground that sho is his widow,
and by him the mother of ten children.
According to all accepted accounts, tho
great humorist was horn in 18.11 and died
in 18(17. Yet tlm claimant says she becamu
his wife in 1KI5, and thai "ho was much
older than ho looked." In 1S55 Mr.
Browne's husband lied, and she never saw
him again. Sho supports her claim by
numerous atlldavits. The most reasonable
theory regarding the ipicor ease Is that
them were two C. F Brow lies, and that
each of them used tlio name "Arteiuus
Ward" on lecture touts.

Mr. McSwat went homo one afternoon a
few wnoks ngo with something wrapped up
In a brown paper. Ho laid It on tho kltch
en table, hut kept hts hand on It, as If it
wero a mystery too momentous to ho tin
folded without taking precautions against
Indicting upon tho sensitive nervous sys
tem of Mrs. McSwat u sudden mid uiiox
pected shock,
"Well, Bllllger, what Is Itf"
"Don't bo in a hurry, Iibeliii. All In
good time. I huvo iiado up my mind to
try a little experiment. I can hardly call
It an o.-.i.rlmont, though. It Is such an
obvloc.j. practical thing that It's 11 wonder
to me It hasn't been done for a hundred
yeara. I am going to show you, Lobelia,
how to save money and add to the com
forts of llfo."
Mr. .McSwat then proceeded with great
dclilcration to open the package. lie took
olT the siting, rolled it Up Into a little cull,
and gave it to Mrs. McSwat.
"It's a good idea, Lobelia," ho said, "to
save every piece of string that mines Into
the house. You may need it some time."
Shu had a bagful of similar coils laid
away somewhere, tangled into an Inextric
able mass und running over nt tho top, und
had no use under the shlnln sun for tin
other Inch of string, but she promised to
take t-itv of this particular wad. Mean
while Mr. McSwat was slowly unrolling
tlie bundle. Ho brought to view tit last a
beef's tongue.
"There it Is, Lobelia," ho exclaimed.
"I ii I't'ce .'iu thing teiuarkable nboiit
It, Lil'i ,. ', ceept that It Isn't sill ,etl."'i just the pilot, madam," ho re
lorled. "I've got tired of plying sixty
centsiipi'i -for snio';ed tongues that look
like as'ction of a dried monkey's foiearm,
and t iste us If they had heju dug up nut of

own beef tongues hereafter."
"Hut liowamyou goliif to do itf We

Mrs. Meu-ut hunted up the desired Im
plement 11, id brought It to him.
"Now ob-ervu."
He thrust t lie poker about half Its length
through the slit in the smaller end of tho
He preceded her up stair?, opened a back
window, sti pped out on the kitchen roof,
mid made his way up by laborious climb
ing to the comb, ami thence along tn the
chimney :.t tho further end. Lifting him
self carefully up he placed tho poker across
tho top of the chimney, thu beef tongue
hanging down inside.
"That's the scheme, Libella," he said,
clambering back to the window. "It'll
smoke the thing all right and save just
forty cents. Catch 1110 buying smuked
tongues any more!"
"But there's no smoko coming up t hut
chimney, Bllllger," said his wife. "Wo
burn hard coal, you know."
"I'll fix that. We'll throw in a slab
occasionally, and If that doesn't make
stroke enough we'll burn a little soft coal.
They'o imth cheaper than hard coil."
They went down stairs, and for the next
twenty-four hours or longer, in eoinp'i
into with Instructions from Billiger, Mr
McSwat atidtlioumiableilomestic, Ophelia

of wood and chunks of soft coal.

Ing to tho coinfott of living, lie climbed
nut to tho chimney again, lifted the tongue
out and brought it down stairs.
"No discount on this job, Lobelia," he
said, holding It tip. "It's smoked till you
can't rest. Ever see a liner looking tongitf

'Doesn't It look a good deal shriveled,

In the good old time, when tho aged of
today were reading their earliest slorv
books, two sort of tales "outthillled" nil
others-tales of llfo among the liidlausaud
tales of shipwrecked sailors. In the latter
linn tho romance of tlm storybooks has
been outdone by I he plain and painful facts
In the life of William Maun, who has Just
returned to his native place In Ksox, Eng
land, after an absence of llftyslx years. In
that time he has been sailor and captive,

the age of fourteen lie got Intosoino trouble,
and tho magistrate, lu kindness, procured
him a place on the Falcon a Paclllc whal-

After many experiences luthesperm wliulo
Hue. ho was with tho Falcon In IB.'M(ho ho
Ing then twenty years old) when she was
wrecked on one of tho Caroline Islands,
The details of tho long contest between the
seamen and the natives am terrible; tlio
captain, mate and several others worn
killed, but Mann and the remainder escaped
to adjacent Islands.
A British man-of-war opportunely ar
rived, took signal vengeance on tho nat Ives,
and rescued all tho sailors hut Maun and
threo others, who wero on 11 remote Island
and weru not found. There thu four men
lived as savages for two years, using cocoa
nut leaves for clothing and tho nut for
food, till tho natives found them. One
was killed, ami Maun received a slash
across the face and neck which would have
killed most men, and hud two lingers cut
on". Being left for dead, the other two
sailors, who had escaped, rescued und re
stored him, sotting ids broken Jaw in rudo
fashion. At Itistuti American whaler picked
them up, and when he readied a regular
surgeon Mann's face was partially restored,
though onu tooth stuck through his cheek.
Thereafter ho engaged lu every sort of
venture to all potts of the Paclllc till ago
rendered him unable to work, and tho
British residents of Hong Kong sent him
home. Strangely enough, the papers of
the murdered captain of tlio Falcon wero
available to corroborate part of Ids story,
and relatives learned for the (lrst tlmo thu
fato of thu four lost seamen.

Anecdotes of tho lato Prlncu Nupoleou
are lluilitig their way to thu light of news
paper publication that are, to say tho
least, of interest. Tlio prince, It is oh

likeness to his great ancestor, Napoleon I,
whom ho always called "the emperor,"
thus Ignoring the Emperor Napoleon III.
Ho kept his face clean shaven to further
the resemblance, nnd arranged his hair in
similar style, while, when ho iccelved a
political deputation, the prjjfci! was inva

On less formal occasions he preferred to
lounge lu an armchair or on some oriental
divan, witU his head thrown hack and his
legs crossed. In this easy position lie would

very fond of billiards, having a largo bill

rooms wero filled with Napoleonic relics,
particularly arms and miniatures, white
portraits of tho great Napoleon covered tho
