BLUE GROTTO OP CAPRI.
Nothine Uke tt Itlaenhero In the World.
An Indewrlbable Seen.
Tlie inhabitants of Capri say that their
inland is built upon grottoutatid supported by
natural arc-lnn like tbe Ktructurui of nieu.
Tliis is perliai an exaggeration, but all
along the rocky aliorcs there are beautiful
crottovA, ami in tlie center oftbe inland a lo-
ront may te mode for hundreds of foot into
tho bowels of tlio earth in the U rot to of the
Stalactites. The sea crottoes we visit la
making the "giro, or circuit of the inland,
which is nn excursion thnt brings the traveler
into contact with some of the rarest effect of
natural scenery known. Howhere in the
world is tlicre uught resembling the famous
Blue grotto of the inland of Capri.
The entrance to tbe lilue grotto, situated In
the rocky cliiT which faces the north at tbe
western extremity of tho island, is perhaps
three feet in height and not more than live in
width. When tho sea is high it cannot bo en
tered at all. Tiie luariuaro who conducts the
party through this aperture aud there must
be but three in tbe boat has all that he can
do to effect an entrance without having his
frail craft dabhod in pieces. Tbe visitors are
obliged to lie upon their backs in the bottom
of the boat, wbjlo the tnarinaro, taking ad
vantage of the wave a3 it ri-sea, and holding
on to tho rock, guides her by a dexterous
shove into the cavern. Here for a moment
the eyes are dazzled by a strange light, but
soon they accommodate themselves to it, and
then the vUitor finds himself in a lake of lim
pid water, whose blue is that of the sky, and
whose sheen is that of molten silver, lue ef
fect is indescribablo. Object dipped in tbe
water, the boat and oars are covered with
this sil.-ery t'hppn, 'bile tbd murlruiro, vvbi
plunges in for the antuaement of visitors,
rises clod in a garment of (lashing light - The
whole extent of the grotto is 100 feet by 175,
and the roof of ribbed and groined natural
arches shares the blue effulgence of the water
Eesides the Dluo grotto of Capri there are
along its coasts a series of others, each of
which seems to take the blue waters of tho
Mediterranean and convert ibcin nlq a tiut
peculiar to itself. Tlie Urcen grotto, on the
south side of the island, with its waters of the
purest emerald hue, ranks noit in beauty to
tho liluo grotto. It can, however, be entered
without diflloulty through a lo.ty archway.
and tho effect, though grand and beautiful.
is not marvelous. There is tlie White grotto,
where tlie water seems Uke milk, and the Red
grotto, where the roof is spangled with red
crystals in tbe limestone rock. There is also
the Urotto of Forua, and along tuo shore as
well a? )n thp'pciitar pi th'p island are grottoes
where in somo places the crystal stalactites
hang like great pointed columns and in
others like a delicate fringe above the vis
itor's head. Mary K. Vandyue in Harper's
Prices Paid. for Magazine Work.
Speaking a few evenings ago with the ed
itor of one of the great New York magazines,
I chanced to ask him as to the 'present rates
paid to authors for their work. -His anSf
was not uniptertsting.
"The present average rato for magazine
work is $10 per thousand words. This, j pp.w
paid to a large number of what is termed
average writers that is, writers whose repu
tations have yet to be made. Of course, this
price does not apply to known and tried
writers. Where articles aro solicited they
always command higher prices. Work of
famous writers commands different pries;
some gome very high. Fpr example, -ye haVlj
paid as high as $f, 000 for a singlp poein.

"But ratta fluctuate, and I am frank to
confess that a great deal depends upon repu
tation. Tins must, of necessity, be so, for
the public will read a story pr poem very

A STRANGE WAR DUEL
HOW A FEDERAL AND A CONFEDER
ATE SCOUT SETTLED MATTERS.
Guarding; a Bridge In East Tennessee.
How the Question of Possession Was
Decided Navy Pistols at Twenty Tarda.
The Results Peace.
On the 12th of June. 1SG3, I witnessed a
duel between Capt. Jones, commanding a
Federal scout, and Capt. Fry, commanding a
Confederate scout, in Green county. Erst Ten
nessee. These two men had been fighting
each other for six mouths, with the fortunes
of battle in favor of one and then the other.
Their commands were encamped ou either
side of Lick creek, a large and sluggish
stream, too deep to ford and too shallow for
a ferry boat, but there a bridge sjiannod tho
stream for the convenience of the traveling
public Each of them guarded this bridge,
that communication should go neither north
nor south, as the railroad track had been
broken up months before. After fighting
enoh other several months and contesting
tbe point as to which should bold the bridge,
they agreed to fight a duel, the conqueror to
bold the bridge undisputed for the time being.
Jones gave the challenge and Fry accepted.
Tbe terms were that they should fight with
navy pistols at twenty yards apart, deliber
ately walking toward each other and firing
until the last chamber of their pistols was
discharged, unless one or the, other fell before
all tho discharges were made. They chose
their seoonds and agreed upon a Confederate
surgeon (as ho was theouly one in either com
mand) to attend them in case of danger.

Fry was a man fully six feet high, slender,
with, long, wavy, em'ling hair, jet UlacU eyes,
wearing a slouch bat and gray suit, and
looked rather the demon than the man.
There was nothing ferocious about him, but
he had that self sufllcient nonchalance that
said, "I will kill you." Without a doubt he
was brave, cool and collected, and although
suffering from a terrible flesh wound in his

fested no symptom of distress, but seemed
ready for the figh$.
The ground was stepped pit by the seconds,
pistols loaded and exchanged, aud tbe princi

They turned, arpuud and walked back to

There is a certain young student at the
Boston School of Technology whose method
of regulating his personal expenditures is sc
strikingly original as to he worthy of de
scription, Like many another youth of salad
age, he finds it imporjsible to refrain fro:r
squandering his money. It simply bums a
hole in his pocket. No matter bow much be
is supplied with, it is all expended in f rivol
ousuess as soou as be gets it. ,rhi weakness
of his has given nch pain to the young
gentlevnan" relatives, and to himself lai
been a source of no little, embarriment.
So, to get over the difficulty, he has hit upon
the following plan,:
Upon rpoiving the check for a fortnight's
allowance, intended to cover his Hving ex
penses, be first liquidates any indebtedness
that may be crMtsnding to his lodging house
keppe? and washerwoman and converts the
whole of the balance into 50 cent silver
pieces. Then going to hia room and closing
the door, be takes the coins by handf uls and
scatters them broadcast about the floor. A
few of those which remain in plain sight ho
puts into his pockets. When they are spent
he picks up a few more, and so or, s neces
sity requires. Af$er 4 w'ts-k; or SO has passed
he is eaupelled to hunt about pretty sharply
for the cash, and the last days of the fort
night find him grubbing under, the wash
stand and ts bureau, poking beneath the
bed and sqiunting down the register in the
hope pf discovering a stray half dollar that
has eluded previous search. But, though
occasionally impoverished, ho is seldom re
duced to absolute pennilessness. The landlady
looks out for bis money, lest a dishonest
chambermaid absorb the current two weeks'
allowance, and thus his pecuniary affairs ad
minister themselves on a thoroughly sysj
tematic basts. Chicago Tribute.
A Profession for Toanj Men,
The profession of veterinary surgvon is an
excellent one for young men. It is a profes
sion that is Ret overcrowded, and the youajr
man who has the necessary capabilities and
the requisite amount of push needed in any
vocation will almost always find plenty to
da Our government is, however, slower
thou it s'lould be in recognizing the value of
this, clas i of professional men. In the regu
lar army veterinary surgeons are classed as
farriers and taken in tbe ranks as enlisted
men. Their pay is from $73 to $100 a month
In private practice the rates of the veteri
nary surgeon are the same as those of the
medical practitioner. The need of skillful
men who know bow to treat intelligently the
disease of animals is shown by a few statis
tics giving the number and value cf some of
the domestic animals in the United States.
These statistics were taken four years ago.
There were then in the United States 10,fc3,
111 horses, valued at 7o6041.3uS; l.S71,07i
mules, valued at H8,7o2,:jy0; i:J,lj,GoS
