City ok Mkxico, S it. 22. There U n
food leal of uneasinefis in political cir
cles regarding the rumored attempt of
Guatamclii to secure the (support of the
United States government as nguinst
Mexico. It is felt here that Biieh a step
would do much to disturb the pleasant
relations existing between Mexico and
the United States, which nt present arc
inducing heavy investments of Americans
here. Mexico's complaint against Guat
amela is this: Insults have been offered
members of the Mexicau legation there
which, it is said, have not been properly
atoned for, and while the Mexican gov
ernment is not acting offensively toward
Guatamela it is demanding just compen
sation for assaults on officials of the le
gation. The fight in Guatamelr is large
ly a clerical conflict and assumes the as
pect of a religious way. Many politi
cians here say they do not believe the
United States will interfere in so deli
cate a matter.

Sued by the Commission.
Dubuque, la., Sept. 22. The railroad
commissioners entered suit here today
against the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul and the Itlinois Central to compel
these roads to switch cars for other com
peting lines. A decision to that effect
by the commission some days ago has
been ignored by the companies. Notices
of service on the agents of the roads were
placed in the hands of the sheriff, so that
suit may be brought in the October term
of court. The law provides that the vi
olation of an order of the commission
shall be treated as contempt, punishable
by fine and imprisonment.
Left Handed Writing.
'It looks like copperplate," remarked
a prominent teacher of penmanship to a
reporter, as he exhibited a handsome
specimen of chirography from among the
many specimens in his large collection.
"It couldn't have been written very
rapidly," suggested the reporter.
"It was, though as rapidly as the
writer could make his fingers move."
"Probably he is a professional penman;
bookkeeper or teacner, UKeiyr
"Neither, and he only learned to write
four years ago. He was a soldier. Dur
ing the war he lost his right arm. After
the war ho became a traveling salesman.
Five years ago he lost a leg in a railroad
accident, and then took up penmanship.
He had to learn it ail over again, oui
by perseverance you see how much he
lias accomplished." Ho is the secretary of
a mining company down town and draws
10000 a year salary. One odd thing
about this is that ho never was a good
penman when ho had both arms. But
in learning to use his left hand he ac
quired the art of making all of his char
acters plainly. He made them slowly at
first, and now ho can't write badly, no
matter how rapidly he works.".
..r;,i -t-rvn pwr know of a. man's learn
ing to use both hands equally well?"
"There are a few instances on record.
I heard of a man once who not only
wrote with both hands, but wrote with
them at the same time and a different
sentence with each hand, ne was the
wonder of the profession, but he was
more of a freak than anything else. Am
bidexterity is a great accomplishment, but

MARRIED WOMEN'S NICKNAMES.

n,i-atr "nir.tio" nl "n.-ihv" iii)i)ear to
be the pet names most favored by tho hus
bands of mammoth women. In this haven
of conjugal rest, for Saratoga is distinc
tively for married couples and has less
conveniences and attractions for lovers
than any place in America, one gets a
deep knowledge of tho ways of wedded
folk. This matter of nicknames for wives
la twin nf tlm most. Intflrestintr studies. To
pursue this branch of learning It is only
necessary to sit ior an nour or iwo, on unj
afternoon, whilo tho music is playing in
tho Inner garden either of tho United
States hotel or of tho Grand Union. All
the rest the married couples will do for
the student. They will talk unguardedly
in his hearing, and he will soon be able
to classify tho couples and the pet names,
for certain names go with certain sorts of
couples as infallibly as pie goes with sup
per in New England.
The very swell and exquisite young
married men, who dress vainly and seek
to give the impression that they belong to
the F. C. D. C, dance at Delmonico's and
know all the fellows who have yachts,
call their wives witli monosyllables, such
as Puss, Chris, Hen, Fan, Loo, Tot.
There seems to be only one marked ex
ecution in the list. You often hear ono
of these wives called 'Tcpsy." There
are two Popsics at the States and there is
one at tho Union. Oddly enough, Xl.i
fathers of these same fellows, men so well
kept that you can't say whether they are
43 or 03, aro fond of drawling out tho full
names of their helpmeets, as, for instance,
"Come heah, Frarnces," or "Now, my
dealt Eleanor, you must have a wrap."
Equally fixed is tho rule that thiu and
sickly women, dyspeptics, neurnlgics, unc
the like, are addressed by their liege lords
as wife, madame, or Misses Thompson,
Misses Brown, or whatever. The invalid
imcii.indj and all the nrici and precise
ones a3 well, address their better halves
as "my dear." This, by the way, is tho
established custom with the HebreWs,
though they usually are heard to pro
nounce the words "mine teer." The
clergymen seem to have united upon the
word "mother" as a title for their wives,
and the men who are so common here
and who seem to be wrapped up in aa
only girl or boy, call their wives "ma."
Other nicknames resist classification
thus far, though perhaps the key to all can
be found by diligent application. There
is no end to the Dollies a?l the "my
loves," while one hears a misceiianoous
lot of passersby addressing their comrades
as "Pet." One plump littla wife is grad
ually becoming known to everybody in
one of the hotels as "Sugar," tho nick
name her husband calls out assiduously
and loudly all day In th parlors and on
the promenades. Tho temptation for
others to call her Sugar is growing pain
ful. Sho is not the only feminine confec
tion, for, at the States, there is a dimpled
brunette who answers to her husband as
"Sweety," and yesterday a very prim
w.vinn tvif cnmpwhit the shape of a
luuuiiiQ ' - J - .
board, was addressed as "Sxveetness" be
fore all the crowd at the spring in Con
gress park. It may bo an oversight, but
there does not seem to bo a "darling" ia
town. A muddy faced, corpulent man of
40, who looks a3 if ho had been born and
brought up in the Stock Exchange, always
addresses kiswifo as "Precious," and in
the same hotel a husband, who appears to
hail from the west, replies to his wife with
"Yes, Pigeon," "All right, Pigeon," and
so on. As it happens, there is something
about tho wife's appearance or manner, or
perhaps it is her shape, that renders this
oldest of nicknames peculiarly appropri
ate. The young fellows who are spending
their time in pulling the down on their
unper lips are fond of pointing out "Sugar"
to all their acquaintances, and in another
tv will doubtless add "Phreon"
to their stock of fun. Saratoga Cor.

Sleep and Its Counterfeit.
The Frenchman, whose long trance or
sleep attracted extraordinary attention in
the latter part of March and the begin
ning of April, was commonly spoken of
as "the Soho sleeper;" but when we speak
of a man "sleeping" for several days or
weeks consecutively, it is obvious that we
do not use the term in its ordinary Bense.
We all know by experience what sleep is,
i -nro fnnnnt. rnneeive ourselves assleep-
' ' - .
ingforan indefinite time, l et it is aim
cult to draw a bne between normal and
abnormal sleep; the physiological con
dition merges by insensible degrees into
all kinds cf pathological statos, known as
lethargy, trance, stupor, coma. Through
the usual phenomena or areaming, we
pass likewise into those of nightmare,
somnambulism, hypnotism, ecstasy, and
the like. Yet it is important, suarpij io
define typical instances of these condi
tions, so as to avoid hopeless confusion in
an already obscure field of scientific in
quiry, and though wo may for the sake of
.nT,rnn:onii oreasionfll v use the term
sleep in the wider sense, yet the distinc
tion between the various states included
under it must be kept present in our
minds. Popular Science Monthly.
Oil on the Waves.
In a pamphlet issued lately by tb
t-Kt.itoo Vivdrnrrrauhic office. Lieuv
Underwood says that mineral oils are no-,
so effective for use at sea as vegetable oi
animal. A comparatively small amount
of the right kind of oil, say two quart
per hour, properly used, Is sufficient, ho
asserts, to prevent much damage, both to
rcD.k nnri tn Kmall boats, in heavy seas.
The greatest result from oil is obtained in
deep water. In a surf, or where water Is
breaking on a bar, the effect ia not 6o cer
tain; but even in this case oil may be of
benefit, and its use Is recommended by
Lieut. Underwood. He advises that, when
an attempt is about to be made to board a
wreck, the approaching vessel should use
the oil after running as close as possible
ror tiiA lpfl of the wreck. The wreck
will soon drift into the oil, and then a boat
may be sent alongside of her. Scientific
