cative Ability In the Management of
the KDonuoui Household The Pnrchae-
Inj Department The Harem.
There- are over 0,000 iiersons fed three
tunes a day at Dolma-Bagcheo palace while
the sultan is there, which makes housekeeping
rather a serious affair, particularly when we
know that these meals are served in nearly
half as many places, there being no regular
dining room nor place which could render
the labor a little lighter. Though there are
tables in some of the departments, the ma
jority prefer to eat from their knees, and
thus their meals are handed around, which
makes an enormous amount of unneceiMary
work. To keep all this great machinery of
supply In perfect order, so that no matter
how many mouths there are to fill nor what
mdden caprice may seize the sultan or any
of his numerous women, it may be instantly

backed by unlimited money or credit. No
matter how unreasonable or almost impossi
ble the demand may be, there is no allow
ance mude for delay in the service.
That there is good executive ability in the
management of this enormous household is
clear, for there is scarcely ever a jar or a
hitch, even under ftie impulse of the most
untimely demands. Every different depart
ment is under the control of a person who is
directly responsible for that, and he has a
corps of servants and slaves under his order
who obey him only, and he is subject to the
treasurer 1 the household. Women have no
voice whatever in the management of any
thing in any department Their sole occupa
tion is to wait upon their respective mis
tresses, or to serve the sultan in some speci
TlIK SULTAN'S CAPRICES.
The chamberlain is mostly occupied in
ministering to the wants and caprices of the
sultan, and is in almost constaut attendance
upon him, so the treasurer of the household
has the burden of the housekeeping on bis
burly shoulders. Ho has an organized force
of buyers, who are each charged with the
purchase of certain supplies for their indi
vidual departments, each having his helpers,
servants and slaves. One man is charged
with the duty of supplying all the llsh, and as
to furnishing fish for certainly 6,000 persons
is no light undertaking in a place where there
nro jio great markets, as there are in all other
largo cities. lie has to have about twenty
men to scour the various small markets and
buy of the fishermen, and each of these men
has two others to carry the fish they buy. It
requires about ten tons of fish a week.
There are nearly 18,000 pounds of bread
eaten daily, for the Turks are Jarge bread,
e&ters, and this ia ail baked in the enormous
ovens situated at some distance from the
palace. The kitchens are detached from all
the palaces and kiosks. It requires a large
force of bakers to make the bread and an
other to bring it to the palace and another
force of buyers who purchase tlw ilour and
fuel. The bringing of the most of the wood
and charcoal is done by the unhappy camels,
who carry it on their backs. There is a cook
for each separate course, and he has his as
sistants and scullions, so that there are in all
nearly 400 men working in the kltphens. Ja.

The lord high chamberlain chooses his
corps of buyers and the chiefs of different
departments to suit himself, usually making
such choice more from some occult reasoning
than fitness for the position. He then trusts

chamberlain, After him Jn importance is
the treasurer of the household, who receives
all the bills, looks them over and then for
wards them to the sublime porte, where they
are paid in time.
THE PURCHASING PSPARTXEXT.
The providing for the material wants of all
these persons, then, really falls upon the
chamberlain. He appoints a phibouk-kiassl
who provides all the pipes used in and about
the palace, both for the men and the women,
including the narghiles. Then there is a
tutuukaiassi, who sees that the whole palaoe
is liberally supplied with tobacco. The
espap-kiassi furnishes the clothes for the sul tan's
wear that is, be buys them. Another
buys the sultan's shoes and slippers. Those
who buy the personal effects of the sultan
have by no means a sinecure, as he never
wears the same garment or pair of shoes
twice, nor does he ever aleep in the same
sheets or bedding a second time. It is sup
posed hat all clothing and bedding which
have touched the sacred person of the sultan
are destroyed immediately after he has dis
The chamberlain has a chief of the buyers
for the kitchen supplies and another f of each
of the household departments, and these
have from ten to twenty aids, and these
again have underlings, who all must be fed
by the royal bounty, and they all receive
their salaries, large or small. The chief of
each department receives and weighs or ap
praises the value of all the articles of food
purchased, and then, attesting to the correct
ness of tho weight or value, hands his ac
counts to the treasurer of the household. In
this way stealing is not so easy as foreigners
The buyers of the furniture, of the carpets,
the glassware, silver and gold plate, the
jewels, the soap, perfumery and cosmetics,
the candies and dried fruits, the kitchen
utensils, and, in short, for every department
are all subject to the same strict system.
The buying for the harem is done by the
samo persons, with the exception of dresses
and other feminine toilet articles, which the
women now buy for themselves generally.
They ride out and shop very much like other
women, only they have no idea as to the
value of money, and they order whatever
strikes their fancy, no matter what it is, and
the bills are sent to the chief eunuch, who
bands them, after supervision, to the treas
urer of the household, who has to get the
high chamberlain's counter signature. The
sewing is done by women who have nothing

port of an enormous addition to Germany's
45,000,000 people. It is inaccurate to say that
any part or i.uroie is overpopulated. When
the most of Germany was a succession of
barren plains, and a largo part of Holland
was under water, those countries could havo
supported only a small part of the people who
now inhabit them. It would havo been a
case, however, not of excessive population,
but almost wholly undeve!oied resources.

productiveness of a country it should not be

the resources of their littlo corner of the

Nature and Treatment of Felons.
The so called felon is an acute inflamma
tion of the sheaths of the tendons or of the
coverings of the bone. It is accompanied
with very severe throbbing pain, creat
tenderness, and often much constitutional
disturbance, as indicated by fever and rapid
pulse. This affection is not only very dis
tressing, but is also attended with some
danger. In pcious debilitated and sickly.

ous absorption. Tho skin covering the
fingers is very thick, so also are the deeper
coverings, especially that which envlttps
the Done. hen pus forms, ip finds an open

tion extends, the danger becomes intensified.
The abscess, if not checked, sometimes pro-

In the meantime the sufferings are terrible.
the parts are enormously swollen, and the
skin seems bursting. If a knife is not used
to make free incisions along the track of the
disease, the pus will probably at last struecle

doing so the muscles will bo broken down,

bone is not uncommon.
A felon is easily recognized; none are so
ignorant they cannot detect it in the early
stage. While 3'et confined to the end of the

physician. If he is competent, the fact will
bo readily apparent, for ho will, even before
there is much swelling, insist upon opening
tho abscess without delay. If the physician
urges this treatment, and the patient through
rear or the knife declines, then the latter
assumes all responsibility, and for what may
happen subsequently can blame no one but
himself. If, on the other hand, the medical
attendant docs not insist upon making an

Before a Chicago Panorama.
The panorama was a revelation to Chicago.
Nobody could understand it, and the explan
ations of the imaginary causes producing the
startling effect were often extremely livli
crous. It looks like "all out doors." Said
one of the first vistiors: "I can understand
how you can have these soldiers painted, and
tho landscape, but what puzzles me is how
you make the landscape fit the sky." He had
noticed the shifting effects of natural sun-
ight on the canvas, and had no doubt that
he was looking at the real sky.
Une night at the closing hour two rough
looking but well dressed men swaggered up
to the box office and called for tickets. -Too
late," said the manager; "come to-morrow.
The lecturer has gone home." With kindly
oaths and quaint persuasion they gained ad
mission, however. The instant they reached
tho platform their hats came off and their
voices sank to whispers. They realized.

were in the presence -of death. Presently.

peared In the foreground. 1 hat peculiar op
tical illusion which increases distance and
magnifies objects on the canvas made that
rat appear several times his real size. "It's
a cat," said one, as he grasped the other by
the arm, trembling as though Satan had
cluthed him. "It's only a mouse" responded
the manager. "Tom, it's time for us to go I"
said the first speaker, pulling his stu pined
companion to the stairway. They spoke not
