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.

Dark Waters of Canadian Iiivers. Tho water of the Saguenay appears to be as black as tar until air bubbles are mixed with it, as in breaking seas or the wake of a steamboat; it then shows its real color to be that of brandy. It receives its color from inland rivers, which pass through swan: s filled with moss and other highly colored roots and vegetablo matter. Nearly ell the rivers and lakes noith of the fc?t. Jawrenco present tho same appearance. A waterfall in the sunshine seems to le a sheet of liquid amber. In addling about tho shallower bays and reefs tho bunches of olive green seaweed, the reddish rocks, the gray pcboles, now and then suggested a painter's palette lying in a basin Df golden wine; and the air bubbles drawn downward at the end of thepac?dle m to fringe it with andier colored gems. In tho shadows ami the reflections of rocks and trees :ho water has a remarkably black surface; a hen a ripple there catches tho light of tho ;ky it is inteuscly luminous by contrast; and f a smoky air hapjK?ns to gio the sunset a Uiliiy hue while a bn-oze blows, then tho sullen current looks like a dark molten metal stirred into ripples of Came. C. II. FamLaiu in Harper's JJagazine. "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." Washington Critic.

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 taken rroni the same cum. fall -Mali Gazette. 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 ownership c- Mrs. Charles lice tor, a north tide lady cf Chicago. Chicago Mail. 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 Tho Sh'jiigl't Stoic.
