This is particularly unfortunate just at

However, the Journal hopes to meet its
subscribers in a t:ity where the paving is

C rinsed by Shaking Hands.
In spe-aking with an old army officer on
the subject of the frciuent Indian out
breaks within the past few years, ho ad
vanced a singular theory, which, to his
mind, at least, accounted satisfactorily
for much that has heretofore seemed in
explicable. Said my friend: "In old
times, when it was necessary to prove the
assent to a written contract of persona
who could neither read nor write, this
was done by nflixing their seals. When
the Indian makes a contract he does so by
word of mouth, sealing the contract with
that solemnity which, to a redskin, me'iina
all things he shakes hands upon it. This
is a custom with the Indian which is re
served exclusively to ratify his ci.', tract,
and never, as with ns, in salutation.
"When an occasion eif importance de
mands that the chiefs shall come to Wash
ington, before starting they represent to
their tribe's the business in hanel, and state
that they will go and see the Great Father,
with whom they will enter into treaty.
Arrived in Washington, an interpreter
presents their case to the presielent, who,
in good will to show that he is not above
giving a kind reception to the humblest
man in the country, a lvances and proffers
his hand. The chiefs are elelighted, and
return to their tribes, setting forth that
the Great Father has accedeel to their
wishe-s, because, after hearing the case, he
shook hands with them. If, after the ex
ecution tf a contract in the presence tf
witnesses subsequently sworn to and re
corded, we should then break it so that a
suit in court would be the enly remedy to
the party injured thereby, the situation
would not be more serious here, while the
president shakes hands with nn Indian
who afterward does not get er enjoy what
ho understood would be given by that act
of handshaking. All of which goes to
prove, in conclusion, that the president
should never shake hands with an In
tliau." Washington Letter.
In a ls eam.sli Ip's Kninn lloom.
?iy reverie is broken by a touch on the
l.onlder, end looking round I find the
. 1 natured captain, who says: "Would
you b'.e to go down with me? I inspect
the engines every elay." We tlescend to
the main deck, and by an iron eloor enter
the engine compartment. A bunch ef
cotton waste is placed in each hand as a
protection against the omnipresent eal.
Carefully we descend the iron stairs, keep
ing a firm hold of the balustrade, lest a
sudden lurch of the ship should precipi
tate us among the great levers and cranks
that weave with relentless speied. Liko
the huge monsters e.f a nightmare, they
would grind their teeth and tear their vic
tim limb trom limb. At every streke of
the Tiis'ion a cold shenvcr bath thrown
upon the bearings prevents the masses of
metal from becoming heated.
Through a dim alley in the hold runs
the steel shaft, extending from engine to
screw, each of whose sixty revolutions a
minute ilrives the enormous iron ship near
ly thirty feet aheael in the sea. Here in a
side room are the dynamos for electric
lights of the incandescent arc pattern elis
trihnted throughout the ship.
"lie careful," says the captain n.s we
enter a dark passage between the hot fur
naces anel a moment later emerge into the
glare of open lire doors. StokcTs stripped
to the waist, smeared with coal elust and
streal.-'d with sweat, are working furi
ously. Cut they elrag the burning coals
that hiss ns they tlrop on the floeided grat
ings. In they thrust the fiery giants'
food and with a crash of closing eloors it
is sueldenly dark. Back by the hot pass
age and staircase wo regain the deck. It
seems weirel to suddenly lose the tunmlt
of the engine anel finel ourselves in the
cold night air, with misty stars overheael
and wind moaning in the corehige. Albert
II. Muusell in Outing.
Chasing the Sworlfish.
"The pursuit of the swordfish," Pro
fessor Goeide says, "is much more ex
citing than ordinary fishing, for it resem
bles the hunting of large animals upon
the lanel anel partakes more of the nature
of the chase. There is no slow or careful
baiting and patient waiting, and no dis
appointment caused by the accidental
capture of worthless bait stealers. The
game is seen and followed, and outwitted
by wary tactics and killed by strength of
arm anel skill. The swerdfish is a power
ful antagonist, sometimes, and scuds his
pursuers' vessel into harbor leaking, and
almost sinking, from injuries he lias in
flicted. I have known a vessel to bo
struck by wouneletl sworelCsh as many as
twenty times in a season.
"There is even the spice of personal
clanger to give savor to the chase, for the
men are occasionally Injured by the in
furiated fish. One of Capt. Ashby's
crew was severely wounded by a sword
fish, which thrust his beak through the
oak floor of a boat on which he was stand
ing, and penetrated about two inches in
his naked heel. The strange fascination
draws men to this pursuit when they
have once learned its charms. An old
swcrd fisherman, who had followed the
pursuit for twenty years, told me that
when he was on the cruising ground he
fished all night in his dreams, and that
many a time he has bruised his hands
and rubbed the skin off his knuckles by
striking them against the ceiling of his
bunk when he raised his arms to thrust
the harpoons into visionary memstcr
sworellishes." New York Mail and Ex
press. On a Uritisli SZan-of-War.
Anil with regard to this going to quar
ters and clearing for action, it may not
here be out of place to note that while in
the old ships the partitions and wooden
screens were all hooked up and got out of
the way in preparation for battle, so that
the decks were clear, in these days when
"quarters fer action" is soundeil the iron
doors are closed, the ship cut up into ns
many segments as possible, and the crew
inclosed in compartments into which the
captain's commands come by voice tube.
The crew is, as it were, a regiment, with
the lieutenants in charge cf the compa
nies, each with his own division of men
and his own subordinate officers responsi
ble for a certain part of the ship. To the
lieutenant go the commanding officer's
orelers, and he communicates to his subal
terns and petty ofneers, as the soldier cap
tain does to his subalterns and non-commissioned
officers. Nc Vnrt Graphic.

How Art ami Itusiness Are Combined

An artistic conl oltice is in Northamp
ton, Mass., where a young lady is the
proprietor ami manager. The office is a
picturesque little sitting room and the odd
moments of time are devoted to drawing
and designing, for !i;; eoal dealer is ari
artist and carries forward the bnsiii"sa
left by her father. The articles which are
needed for handling coal are, thanks to
enterprising manufacturers, made in an
an artistic and practical manner. Wood
boxes of antique oak are bound with
handsome bands of hand wrought iron or
polished brass, which prove very clTe t 've:
when developed iu proper form. All th:.se
graceful and pract icvl articles iU'e fuuid

The business ofliee of The Decorator and
Furnisher in New York is extremely pic
turesque, practical and t-u.;r:et i ve, to
tiiose who love beauty of furm and crl';-,-,
novel design and exquisite workmanship.
The office is one large room, with broe.d
windows which admit a linod of ttmshiiiO
and plenty of fresh air. Entering from
the hail, yon see a group of light e l'i et,
and Boft, rich color, which fairly pervades
t he atmosphere. The Voo:n is divided
into several nooks, called private offices,
the partitions being made of fancy Japan
ese lattice work set in frames of bamboo;
the open lattice, made in squares, shows
a variety of design and the tiny bits of
wood, most of which are less than an inch
in length, are put together with wonder
ful exactness; the delicacy of tho struc
ture strikes one as not exactly suited to
every clay use, but strength is secured by
perfect construction, and the delicate out
lines gain added beauty frcrm the back
ground of color secured by t lie addition
of soft, bright silken draperie-s put up
very simply on tiny rods. These cozy
offices are filled with eoft, bright rugs,
easy chairs, couches and artistic triiles,
which add to the cozy effect and serve
many times for practical business pur
poses. Mr. Low, the man of tiles, has a pic
turesque offico in Chelsea. The exterior
is made of brick, not polished red brick or
painted brick, but refuse brick, odds and
ends thrown out from the kiln as useless
for building purposes. The bricks, with
their irregular shapes, dashes of black,
brown, yellow and red, have been builded
into one of the most picturesque of Eng
lish cottages, beneath whose portal the
visitor enters into a breezy atmosphere,
where desks of rich dark wood hold any
amount of work; the quiet, artistic sur
roundings do not disturb any one, for it
is a place to rest in. The fittings arc of
dark wood, the railings are of deep, rich
tone, twisted in long, graceful coils,
clasped at intervals by bands of polished
brass; chairs, talfles, book racks, tile
holders, all have frames or supports of
this twisted wood, which Is highly pol
ished and reflects light anel shade in a
very charming fashion. A deep English
window with diamond panes opens toward
the street, and from the roof a deep
shadow is cast along the outer wall from
projecting eaves, while the corners of the
building are strongly defined by clustered
bricks which have been very hot in the
kiln and in cooling run out of shape, pre
senting irregular, elongated forms, which
are quaint and attractive when defined
against a brilliant sky. Boston Art
Emancipation in I'rnzil.
A large number of planters in Brazil
have just been very neatly hoist with their
own petard. Two years ago a law was
passed providing for the gradual emanci
pation of the slaves, of whom the empire
still contains a large number. One of the
provisions of this law was that every
slaveholder should register the number
and individual value of his slaves, and the
perioil allowed for this registration ex
pired at the end of March last. On the
registers being overhauled it appeared that
only a relatively small proportion of the
slaves in the country had been "declared."
The bulk of them had been omitted in
order that their owners might escape the
small registration fee to be paid on each
slave. As many of the planters own large
numbers of slaves the saving to them was
considerable. Every slave not registered,
however, becomes ex post facto free, and
now there is gnashing of teeth in Brazil
over the 200,000 bondsmen who will, it is
feared, be manumitted by reason of this
evasion of the law. The planters had
counted upon the ignorance of the slaves
not to claim their freedom, but the Brazil
ian Sambo has many friends. It appears,
however, that most of the slaves who
have so far become entitled to their liberty
nre voluntarily remaining with their old
masters as hired laborers. St. James'
