Use of the Paragraph.
It is easily possible to overdo paragraph
ing. The more experienced writers are
especially liable to this sin, mainly because
they imagine that it adds to the effectiveness
of their compositions. Certainly it does at
tract attention for a time. Tho trick of the
types deceives us into tho belief that in the
multitude of paragraphs a multitude of sub
jects, or new views of subjects, will be
brought out. We turn to this kind of writ
ing against spaeo with the space coming out
a good deal ahead with lively interest; but
it turns to speody disgust when we find tho
lines even more empty of ideas than of let
ters. Paragraphing every sentence gives the
thought, where there is any, much such a
jerky motion as a rider would get on a horse
afflicted with springhalt, or stringhalt, as it
is often called.
Tho proper use of a paragraph is to make
thought go forward. The springhalt style
simply makes it liob up anil down and go for
ward very slowly. Iso reasonable being can
long write rational fought in this manner
without danger of losing what reasoning
faculties he had. This jerky style of mak
ing paragraphs of every sentence we have
borrowed from the French. Perhaps it may
be in that people one of tho fearful results of
a too exclusive diet on frogs' hind legs. It
has certainly increased in this country much
in the same proportion that eating frogs has
become fashionable. Villiani J. Fowler in

The death of Gen. Phil Kearny at Chan

circumstances which led to his death have
hitherto been kept very quiet. Gen. Pierce
Young, of Georgia, has just returned from
St. Petersburg, where he was United States
consul general. He was a Confederate officer
during the war, and says that at Chantilly
he and his command unexpectedly sur
rounded Kearny and his stall. Young, who
hod been a classmate and friend of Kearny,
motioned K tle Union general to escape.
Kearny saw the Mgnal, but before he could

A Primitive I?ar..ln.iigo Among tho Tala
muiicas liellea and Iteaux.
It was a clear, beautiful night, when tho
strains of music with which tho entertain
ment began summoned the belles and beaux
to the dance. Beyond stood the mountains,
dark and immulable. Torches lit up the
scene with their wavering glow, and the
stranger's Ctger involuntarily sought his
ears to shut out sounds which his uneducated
sense prevented his considering musical.
The native drum was a primitive instru
ment of torture, consisting of tho skiu of a
snake stretched ocross sticks and beaten with
a vigor rather unwelcome to tho unfortunate
pilgrim, considering it was his first experi
ence. At a given signal tho participants in
tho dance formed a circlo of men and women
alternately, tho women clasping hands over
tho shoulders of the men. Then to tho hide
ous discord the dancers went through i:;uri
after figure, Iir:t in a rather s.low styl i:o
altogether unsuggestivo of the graca mi;.
posed to bo inherent with tho lithe and r:-'
ewy dwellers in tho forest; but as their rpii-i!
roso, assuming a rapid motion ahiios i.i:p;;:,
sible to follow with the eye.
T.'tt'o by little t::o excitement i;-epe!i!-d.
until tho circle was broken and each indi
vidual becamo a fantastic figure, leaping
and shouting in a manner quite worthy oi
pandemonium. Tho light of many toreLe.
flamed upon tho dusky faces, upon the
elders seated in solemn sileneo without
tho circle, upon the forlorn traveler, who
felt that ho was in very deed n poor,
wretched castaway. Tho costumes, as be
came a ball honored by tho preseneo of the
elite of society, were in the highest stylo of
art. many of the young men wearing feathers
in their heads and tho most approved Roman
togas; the girl3, as was suitable with debu
tantes, ljeing attired simply and elegantly,
some in robes made by a simple incision in a
canvas bag, others in toilets to which fully
two yards of "fruit of the loom" cotton had
been devoted, the brand forming a unique
species of embroidery across the front drap
ery. Ouo maiden woro exquisite family
jewels, consisting of tho teeth of the moun
tain tiger strung together; it is almost un
necessary to add that she was tho envied of
her young companions and the recipient of
much attention from the men ; another had
heightened the already extreme beauty of
her rounded cheeks by laying on a thick
coating of suspiciously red paint the real
war rouge of her valiant ancestors.
The belles of tho ball comported themselves
with a conscious dignity, not by any means a
bad imitation of their cultured sisters in
civilised ball rooms; and the attendance of
some promising young cacique aroused the
old feelings of envy known all the world over
from timo immemorial. Costa Rica.Cor. San
Francisco Chronicle.
Ladles of San Francisco.
I think I have spoken about the good looks
of tho San Francisco Indies, but I must once
mora refer to tho subject. They have the
healthiest, happiest faces, finest figures and
best fitting dresses I have ever seen. English
women have good figures of the hour glass
shape and their tailor mado gowns fit ex
quisitely. New York ladies have better
figures, for they are not laced quite so tightly,
thus giving the fifth ribs a better chance, and
their dresses fit well, too, but tho San Fran
eisco ladies carry off the palm; they have far
and away better figures, and their dresses are
Iietter fitting than those of London or New
York ladies. Dressmakers hero are artists iu
one way at least, if nature has not given to
their customers tho required amount of adi
pose tissue to make them flno figures, they
the dressmakers know how to upholster
artistically in tho right places, and only a
careful and experienced eye can discorn
where nature ends and art begins.
The dressmakers spend all their energies on
tho fit of tho garment, evidently, leaving
nothing for originality of design or for drap
ing. A second class New York modiste will
discount tho best of them here when it comes
to draping, and tho average New York
woman has ideas of her own which she insists
upon having her dressmaker carry out, even
though she stand over her, club in hand.
You remember tho w itty Parisian who said
"It isn't so much what your clothes are as it
is tho way you swing 'em." The San Fran
cisco ladies have a way of swinging them
right stylishly. How handsome they are,
too, if only they wouldn't use so much paint
and powder. When will women learn that
theso aro not necessary adjuncts to the toilet,
and that they but prove a blotch on the fair
work of nature? San Francisco Cor. Cleve
land Leader.
A Lively Imagination.
Some years ago a newspaper man with a
lively imagination went upon a trip. I think
he paid his way, wildly improbable as that
may seem to he, becauso either tho newspaper
business must have fallen off in its emolu
ments lately, or he must bo lying liko all who
go there. There were not so many people
about the place then, und it was not so easy a
trip. In the party was a bright young mar
ried lady, who bad also a great deal of fun in
her. The two put up a job that what either
of them saw iu tho shapes or the crags and
peaks in the clouds, or anything else, tho other
was to indorse it and say "How lovely!" or
-Isn't it weird.'" or something like that. The
charm worked.
"Do you see that rock? Isn't it the exact
picture of an immense chariot? And just look
if that doesn't look like a horso of gigantic
proportions drawing it?"
"it is. now grand it is."
"Where is it?" from all the passengers.
"There; why, don't you see it? You see it,
Mrs. Smith, don't you?"
"Very plainly. It's exactly like it"
Then one by one the others would begin to
recognize it, or swear they did. The number
of. taoso singular resemblances kept growing
until the two begau really to see things that
could not by any possibility be distorted out
of the landscape, and finally the joke got thin,

How a Young Shorthand lteporter dot
Ahead of the Judge Advocate.
"All thi:i talk aliout speed," said a short
hand writer, "reminds 1110 of a little exix-ri-enco
that I had away back in lSlKi I was
then located iu Now York, and was a mero
lad and comparatively new in the business.
I had never been in a court room and knew
absolutely nothing about tho for in of trials. I
could write shorthand, however. There was
a big murder trial going on in North Caro
lina, and they sent to Now York in hot has to
for a stenographer. I happened to bo tho
only one at tho timo available, and Graham
sent mo down.
"I shall never forget that experience.
About tho first man I came in contact with
was tho judge advocate He was as gruff
and sarcastic as a cro&i cut saw half a mile
from an oil can. He looked mo over in a
sneering way that I shall nevtr forget, and
seemed to bo sadly disapjiointod over the fact
that thero was not more of me.
" 'The man whose shoes you have leen sent
to fill could write 200 words a minute,' lie
said gruffly. IIow many can you write?
' 'I don't know exactly, sir,' I stammered.
"Well, I'll drop into your room in tho
morning before court ojxjns and put you
through your paces,' ho said sarcastically.
"When I got to my room I was about the
worst frightened loy you ever saw. This
was a nice sort of man for 0110 who knew
nothing whatever about courts to encounter.
About tho first thing I saw when I entered
my room was an old volume of Webster's
speeches. An idea at onco struck me. I
picked out one of theso and practiced on it
most all night. The consequence was that I
had committed it to memory and had it right
at my finger ends. All that remained was to
deviso some scheme to get tho judgo advocate
to select that particular speech for tho text.
Bright and early the next morning ho camo
into my room.
"'Have you got anything hero that 1 can
read to Jou from?' ho askoiL
" 'I don't know,' I replied, as carelessly as
possible. 'IaI's see. Ah, here's a book which
seems to belong to the room. It's Webster's
speeches. Mchbe this might do.'
"I opened it carelessly at tho particular
speech which I had practiced upon and
banded it to him. no examined it carefully,
and all tho time my heart was in my mouth.
I was afraid he would turn the Jpages and
pick out some other speech. But he didn't.
" 'I should think this would do,' ho said,
and proceeded to count off 200 words.
"Well, at it we went, and when the 200
were written I still had fifteen seconds of the
minute to spare. Ho timed mo with one of
those old stop watches, and I can see it yet.
" 'Hum !' he said, 'I guess you'll do,' and
after that he seemed to think I was more of a
man than I looked." Chicago Times.
Cads and Cowboys In London.
Tho cowboys in Buffalo Bill's camp object
to tho manner in which the visiting crowd
beguilo an hour or two by forming groups
around tho doors of tho tents and studying
the inner lives of the occupants. Many of
tho cowboys aro married and have theif
srives and children living with them in camp,
and they do not much enjoy having the path
outside their homes besieged by a staring
mob, who, perhaps, under the impression
that the English language is not spoken in
Texas, make tho loudest and freest comments
on the fittings and the inhabitants of the
tent. The cowboys in general aro very good
tempered and civil. Lately one of them of
fered mild remonstrance to a thoroughly
typical ead, who was making his female com
panion very merry with his comments as
they stood in tho middle of a little mob of
"Why do you stand there all the time and
tare and jeer like that?" tho cowboy asked.
"Surely you ought to have more sense."
"Dare say you Yankees have come over to
teach us sense," was the cad's smart reply.
The cowboy looked at him calmly and said:
"Jf you were a foot or so nearer to my size I
juess I would try to knock some sense into
j-ou;" and then the young Texan giant turned
and stalked back into the recesses of his tent,
murmuring to somo friends who were there:
:'If I stayed any longer where I could see
these folks I might lose my temper." London
Cure of the Opium ITabit.
Varied factors affect the cure. Much de
pends upon individual constitution and en
vironment. Recurrence of the original dis
ease must bo carefully watched lest it bo mado
the pretext for an occasional taking, which
will incur large risk of confirmed re-use.
Alcoholic taking greatly lessons the prospect
of permanent recovery. Tho ex-opium
habitue must, if ho values his future good,
entirely abstain from alcohol.
Tho heroic plan of abrupt, complete disuso
deserves the severest condemnation. No phy
sician is warranted, save under circumstances
peculiar and beyond control, in subjecting his
patient to the torturing ordeal of such with
drawal. This plau has tho sanction of men
otherwise eminent iu tho profession, but I
venture to suggest, with 110 lack of respect to
them, that like a somewhat famous nautical
individual, "they mean well, but they don't
Theory is one thing, practice another, and
I am quite certain were they compelled to
undergo tho trial thero would be a rapid and
radical change of opinion. I regard tho plan
as cruel and barbarous utterly unworthy a
healing art. J. B. Mattison, M. D., in Tho
Newport's Gilded Bachelors.
The single man at Newport, unblessed with
n invitation from some cottage resident,
goes into quarters quite as does hi3 ideal in
London, in his chambers in Piccadilly or
Half Moon street The Berkeley, the White
Hail and the Casino, with others of lesser
fame, have their rooms all engaged months
before the season fairly opens, and here the
society man puts up with valet and boxes and
buckhorn handled sticks and umbrellas and
has his polo pony near by, gets his caf o au
lait and chop at Gunther's and trusts to his
desirable presence being needed to fill up a
dinner table to eke out the vulgar fact that
ho must eat to live. He has shown up a new
garment in his collection of necessities for
Newport wear. This is an opera cloak,
needed after tho warmth of tho ballroom,
but is a contradiction to the white mantle of
a lady. As he steps out of the glare and heat
ne has his man ready with a long black cash
mere cloak, most voluminous in material and
lolds, quite like that in which Mephistopheles
slinks on the first time he appears in "Faust"
It is of the finest cloth, patterned much as
the old woman's garment of the peasantry in
