A VA9T MILITARY CAMP.
Russia StandiiiK Army the I-argeiit In
Kurope Tlio Unserves.
Russia is a vast military camp, and has
been smeo the war with Turkey; l.KuO.OtX)
nlile iKKlied men coiiiikw the statidin-r army.
the lar-st in Ktiroje, supported nt a cost of
nearly Ki.OlK'.OOil a 3'car, whilo tlie work in
the wheat Holds and tho gardens is done by
women a!l girts. I saw women carrying
hodri, dicing stivers,' ilitehes, and doing nil
sorts of niaiiual laiior, which in other coun
tries is done only by tlio strongest men, and
when I asked why it was so, was told
that all tho men were in the army. A few
days after I took a trip to Krasuoe Selo,
ntxmt forty miles from Petersburg, and saw
10,000 idle men in camp.
Until the late war with Turkey, it was the
custom to recruit the army in tho agricultural
district, and in the cities, resorting to con
scription only whenever the ranks needed to
bo iilled; but the late czar reorganized the
military establishment, ami issued a ukase re
quiring every mail citizen of thoempiro to
serve as n soldier for fifteen years, five j-ears
to be spent in actual service, and ten as a
member of tho militia or irnixrial reserves.
At the age of IS every young man, therefore
must enter the service or furnish a substitute
who can.be obtained, usually, by the payment
of a small bounty to some professional sol
dier who has served his own time, but who-
over offers a substitute must serve in the
militia reserves, and is liable to be called into
the Geld at any time. The substitute is merely
a hostage, and does not relievo his principal
from service if the czar needs his arms.
After five years of active service, the young
men, well drilled and having a know ledge of
military duty, are sent homo to serve in the
reserves till they are 33 years of age, being
called upon each year to spend a lew weeks
in camp, so as to keep their hands in. W. E.

Tho water of the Saguenay appears to be

"Ln:j" and "Woniai;."
Shortlv after the war closed the negroes
began to call each other ''lady" and "gen
tleman," but in speaking of the whites,
they generally called them that 'man''
and that "woman." An instance oc
curred a few years ago in which Gen. V.
T. Sherman played a part. The generr.l
was sitting iiWront of his house one f leas
ant evening with some friends, smoking
and talking, when a fellow as black ns
the ace of sp.cles sidled up, ami, address
ing the general, said: "Is de a lady here
earned Johnson?" 4,2,o," said the gen
eral. "Well," said tho darky, "I think
there must be n. lady of that name living
here, because she is my wife, and she is
working for a woman named Sherman."

A correspondent of The Xorth China
Daily News, of Shanghai, describes it
priming establishment which he foiinil in
a vitiate in the interior, about 150 miles
from Shanghai. The printing wus being
temporally carried on iu the village
temple, and movable type only was used.
In the lare central hall ol the temple
were placed about twenty ordinary square
tables, on which the cases of type were
spread out. At the time of the visit one
man was engaged, in setting up tyo. an
other was printing. The former ht'l
le fore it table, on which Wus what may
be called the Chinese "case." It was ti
solid block of hard wood, about twcniy
two inches long by fifteen inches b-Oiid,
and perhaps three inches deep. The in
side was hollowed out to a depth of about
a quarter of an inch, this depression being
still further hollowed out into grooves
about three-quarters of an inch deep. Tho
block had twenty-nine of these groove.-",
each filled to the depth of a quarter of an
inch with ordinary stiff clay.
With his copy before him, armed with
a small pair of iron pincers, the competi
tor began his work; character after char
acter was transfcrcd from the case i.nd
firmly pressed into the clay. When the
form" was complete a Hat. board was
placed on tho t p ;:" ( .: :
pressed perfectly even ami icel with win
surface of the wooden block, the edge of
which was cut to form the border gener
ally found round every Chinese page.
1 he printer now leceived tiie form and
caret' illy brushed his ink over his type.
inking ii sheet of paper, he prosed it
dovu all over the form to that it might
lie brought into contact with every char
acter, lie then removed the sheet anu
examined eac ii character, carefully adjust
ing those whicn were not quite straight
with the pincers, and apparently never
touching the type with his fingers. After
Mdiicieiit copies had been struck off the
type was distributed, each character being
returned to its partic-ularbox. The wri
ter was told that the art of printing in
this way had been handed down in the;
same family since the Sung dynasty, more
than GOO years ago. No strangers were
ever taught, apprentices being always

Interesting Kelics of Liiiet;ln.
The talk about the removal of Llbby
prison to Chicago starts afresh reminis
cences of the war. There is living in
Chicago today a lady to whose house Lin
coln was taken from Ford's theatre on
the night that the president's life was
taken by J. Wilkes Booth. Tho lady was
at that time a child. Her people were
southerners, and hated everything Yan
kee. However, they were the letter class
of southerners, who never permitted any
one beneath their own roof to be treated
otherwise than as guests. When Mr.
Lincoln's body was carried into this
hoii' the family yielded everything to
the comfort of the patient, ami weru
deeply grieved at the misfortune, as they
subsequently showed. The lady in ques
tion has the pillow upon which the mar
tyred president breathed his last. The
piece of candle which was held for the
surgeon as he was dressing the wound is
preserved and in her possession. The
coverlet which was thrown across the suf
ferer, and many of tho little things that
were about the room, and some of which
were used on the fatal night, were all
preserved, and ar.- in the keeping and tiie

A Cook witu Centrifugal Motion.
A well known Paris scientist, Dr. De-
launay, has made some curious discover
ies which show the connection between
little and great things. To ascertain the
qualities of an applicant cook he says it is
sufficient to give her a plate to clean, a
sauce to make, and watch how .she move 3
her hand in either act. If she moves it
from left to Tight, cr in the direction of
the hands of n watch, you ma y trust her;
if the other way. she is certain to be stu
pid and incapable. The intelligence of
people may also be gauged, the doctor
further savs, bv asking .them to make a
circle on paper with a pencil and noting
in which direction the hand is moved.
The good students in a inathemaife.-d
chiss draw; circles from left to right. i'i e
inferiority of the softer sex, as well as
male dunces, is shown by their drawing
from right to le-ft. Asylum patients u-.i
the same. In ii word, says the doctor,
centrifugal movements are characteristic
of intelligence and higher devclopin'.-nr; j
cent ripetal are .t mark of incomplete evo
lution. A person, as Ids faculties arc i"e- 1
vcloncd, may even come to draw circk-s
iua different way from what he did in his
youth. Chambers' Journal.
Enthusiasm Over Scotch Soitjs.
We met with several instances of how
3nthusiastic Scottish feeling exists in the
midst of colonial life, , which, with its
prosaic feature and 5 truggl.? after ma
terial wealth, is not nlwavs the best ton-
server of n.:t;o:ial sentiment. The feeling
is apt t-.i become eccentric, ns was the case
of the Stsman of Kir.:: William's Town
who had a portrait tf Mary, Queen of
Scots, hung in his bedroom, and who
every morning on rising stretched his
hands toward it, crying, "Oh! my mur
dered queen!" Once we overheard an
enthusiast saying. "My Am Iireside,
'Ye Banks an' Braes," "The Land c' tho
Lea!, eh, 11 body could be lit to gang to
heaven hearing thao sangs sung." And
was ever love of country more strongly
expressed than in the case of the Fort
Beaufort Scotsman, who exclaimed:
"Giule 6ave us! I'd rather gang hame
an' be hanged than dee here a natural
death!" New York Times.
A New Kiitd of Dog.
A dog about as big as a rat, with no hair
and pink skin and eyes blue as sapphires
was airing itself on rifth avenue the other
morning. It was in charge of a nurse maid
and a small boy with more buttons 0:1 his
jacket than hairs on his head, and if it had
been a young prince they couia not nave ex
hibited more solicitude ubout it. The small
boy informed me that this prize animal came
from "Honolulu, or souiewueres out there,"
and added that be was "one of them kh:d of
dogs a9 people eats." Whether it is to deck
a Imnqueting board on the avenue and intro
duce society to a new delicacy he did not ex
plain. Alfred Trumble iu New York New
