Tint centennial celebration that 1ms

could be concentrated at New York in
fifteen hours nhouhl the necessity arise.
ianaoers of western railroads have
been summoned before the inter-stat
commerce commission, at Washington, to
answer certain questions as to the niethoi
of paying commissioners on the rale o
tickets. Interesting revelations may be
expected when the commission applies
the thumbscrews to these officials.
The Argentine Republic has announced
its willingness to guarantee interest at 5
pr cent for ten years on a capital o
$"(,000,000, to be invested in packing
houses for the export of beef. The offt
is so liberal anil the trade has proved to
fairly renumerativc that the money wiL
probably be forthcoming, unless some o

"Official calculations of the money
circulation of the Uuited States on Apri
1 of each of three successive years show
the amount of outstanding currency to
be greater now by $37,000,000 than one
year ago, and greater about $55,000,000
than two years ago, the present circula
tion being $1,400,481,000." The actual
circulation or amount of money in the
hands of the people can only be ascer
tained by data largely beyond the reach
of an accountant It is sufficient t
know, and all we can know, that if the
treasury will pay out as it receives ncrl
not allow the surplus to increase, v.e hav

ONE OF THE GUARANTEES.
President Harrison said at the banquet
on Tuesday evening, after watching for
hours the day's parade: "Perhaps never
in the history of our nation have we beeD
so well equipped for war upon the land
as now, and yet we have never seen
tune in our history when our people were
more smitten with the love of peace."
The president doubtless had in mini
both the vast material resources which a"
a moment's notice could be applied t(
the purposes of war on a great scale, and
the host of armed men who stand ready
to serve their country in an emergency
not with the useless zeal of raw recruils
but with tue skill and discipline of vet ¬
erans. Tuesday's parade was a revelatioi
to many practised eyes. General Hani
son is himself a keen and discriminatiii"
observer, and he was deeply impressed
with what he had seen. General Scho
neia, irainea in tne science ot war irom
boyhood, and with the profession?
spirit naturally strong within him, h i
since expressed the most generous admi
ration of the performance of the citiz i
soldiery. He was amazed at the preti
sion and efficiency displayed by mci
who had come together from all parts o!
the country, and who, without th
slightest drill in combination, were fou:i!
entirely equal to all the requirements of
a mammoth review. And he declared
with enthusiasm that no soldier conU
witness such a spectacle without fuli
conviction of the country's safety.
i Here is no possioic tiouoc mar. 1 1-
Centennial celebration has stimulated
loyalty to a wonderful degree, and si
has fulfilled its worthiest purpose. T!ii?
realization is apparent in the columns of
the press, in private conversation and in
the chorus of the streets. The ver y
atmosphere is full of it. Our second
century has made a noble beginning.

VALUE OF OLD MASTERS.
FIGURES OF INTEREST TO THOSE
WHO LOVE FINE PICTURES.
Atuericans Nut So Kaslly lluinbugged as
They Once Were Tbe II lull and Low
Water Marks of Famous Painters Hit-
rlllu'a Range from I8 to 812S.OOO.
The value of pictures has been very
considerably disturbed by tho revelations
recently made. It has thrown suspicion
upon tho method of salo by auction
which baa heretofore been so popular
and suggests the possibility that more
than ono of tho great picture Bales of re
cent years have been in a measure
"cooked" affairs. In which prices have
lx?en made to rise to a height by no
means in accord witli the actual stato of
Americans have not shown quito the
same taste for "old masters" as have the
iieonlo of other countries. Once they
reverenced them on account of their age
and gave high prices for their pictures.
Cut they were innocent then, and when
they awoke- to tho fact that most of the
old masters which they owned were ho
cus, thev made baste to rid themselves
of the same.
Since then Americans have had little
to do with this class of pictures. Now
however, they are beginning again to
EIQ AND LITTLE GEMS.
Following are some extreme and 6ome
a v mure urices of the pictures of men
whoso names are mentioned:
Jan Van Eyck An adoration of the
magi in the Northwick sale in 1S59
fetched $2, ICO. Van Eyck's works are
scarce and much sought after. The pict
ure mentioned must have been an excel
lent example, for another picture of the
same subject was sold in Cologne in 1862
for a little more than o00. Only the
best of liis pictures have sola for more
than S200 or $300.
Guercino His finest works in the Lou
vre are valued at 54,000, $5,000 and
SC.000. tho "Martvr of St. Peter at Mo-
dena" being considered worth $9,000.
Nearly every gallery in Europe has
some specimen of his work. During the
last century the highest price obtained
at auction has been $2,400. Small heads
and less significant works have sold as
low as $10. A few single figure painting!
hare been sold at from $50 to $250.
Hans Holbein His works are abund
autly represented in foreign galleries,
Though one of the greatest German
painters bis pictures have never brought
largo prices at public sale. A portrait of
a lady was sold in 1850 for about $2,000
other portraits in recent years
rarely exceeded $200.
Ciuiuo Keni llis "uapo or Helen in
the Louvro has been assessed at 3,000.
II is works are in all the European gal
leries. They have seldom sold for more
than S2.000. A "St. Jolin" wa3 sold in
1S53 for $3,400.
David Teniei-s More of his pictures
than those of any other painter have
been sold publicly. He is extensively
copied and imitated, but of a list of about
350 different sales of his pictures the
highest prico ever brought for any one
was $5,000 paid in tho van Sassengen
ale. In 1852. for a painting called "The
MCIULLO AND RUBENS.
JIurillo Tho greatest of the Spanish
school in point of value. There are nine
of his pictures in the Louvre, The most
celebrated of these is the "Immaculate
Conception." for which tha French gov
ernment paid $125,000. This is far in
excess of all the others, which are rated
a;' worth everywhere from $1,000 to $12
OCJ, at which figure the "Holy Family"
h:ii been appraised. His pictures figure
in all the principal museums of Europe
and have orten sold at auction at very
high prices. Thero were no les3 than
fourteen of his pictures in the famous
Soult collection, to which the Louvre's
"Immaculate Conception" belonged. The
"Flight into Egypt" brought $10,000; the
"Jesus and St. John as Children," $12
0CJ: the "St. Peter Bound," $30,000; the
"Miracle of San Diepro," $17,000: a
"ISrigand Stopping a Monk," $5,000.
Tha rest of the pictures of the collection
sold for from $1,000 to $5,tt0. The price
brought by tho "Immaculate Concep
tion was tno largest ever paid tor a
picture at the time. It is doubtful wheth
er it would now realize an equal sum,
as Murillo s work has not mcreased in
estimation, while new standards of tastes
have taken possession of picture buyers
A large painting of the very same subject
;n the Eardley collection was put up at
auction in I SOU, but was witliurawn in ue
fault of a bid of $45,000. Since the Soult
sale many of his works have been publicly
6ohL Tho Empress Eugenie gave the
largest price brought by any of his other
pictures. She paid $8,000 for a "Sleep of
the Infant Jesus" at the Patureau sale in
157. Many of his works were sold in
tho Aguado collection in 1843. They
ringed from $18 to $5,000, at which sum
ono of liis Annunciations was disposed
cf. One of liis pictures figured in the
Aspinwal! salo here a few years ago, but
was without a -buyer. It was subse
quently taken to London, where, after
long negotiations, it was sold, presuma

his pictures have naturally commanded
very great prices. Tho fact that he
worked much through his assistants has.
however, made a great dilTerence in
their values. His works in the Louvre
aro estimated at $20,000, $30,000 and
$40,000, some of the famous series in the
life of Mary of Medicis being valued at

about $2,000 to $5,000. The famou
"Chapeau de Paille," one of the most
beautiful portraits ever painted, was sold
in 1S22 for about $15,000. Few of his
best works have sold during the present
ccnturv. The Inchest price brought at
public salo at any time was for an in-
terior with portrait of the family of lial- rcpueu. v ny. cenaimy. Aro mev in

A PHOTOGRAPHER'S TRIALS.
CstraragHn-t Demands oa Ilia Skill,
tienco " Good Nature.
A photograprt. , meet with many
strange charactc?fe.Tid is a witness of
many curious incidents. In a recent in
formal talk before the Society of Amateur
Photographers, Abraham Bogardus, tho
vetera a photographer, told a number of
amusing stories of incidents that hap
pened to him in the course of his forty
one years' experience in the studio and
dark room. He prefaced his talk with a
few sarcastic remarks regarding young
men who write long screeds in photo
graphic papers on how to take photo
graphs, whom tho experiences of a single
day "under the 6kylight" would cause
them to wish they had never leen born.
He then went on to speak of tho un
reasonable demands which many bitters
"At one lime," he 6aid, "a lady
brought three children, two boyB and a
girl, to me, to have their pictures taken.
They came all prepared, with a doll for
tho girl and a gun and a hobby horso for
the boys. Well, there was a row at the
EtarL Both boys wanted to mount the
horse. e got that settled after a time,
but only to strike a new trouble. Of
course you all know tliat the nearer to
gether you group the objects to be photo
graphed the better picture you will get.
Well, this woman was a genius in her way;
she did not want her children grouped
closo together as other people's were, but
she wanted the little girl taken in the
middle of tho room and the boys olT in
opiosito corners. Of course I told her
it could not bo done, whereupon she
said: 'Well, Mr. Bogardus, I have always
leen told that you were very accommo
dating. I have been to three or four
photographers and they all told mo the
same thing. I don't seo as you aro any
more accommodating than tho rest of
them.' At another time a man, an Irish
man, of course, wanted a carte-do-visite,
and ho wanted it 'life size.' Some peo
ok by tho way, never 6eem to under
stand the difference between 'full length'
and 'life size.' I told him that the plate
wouldn't bold it. 'Then take it with the
legs hanging down,' were his instruc
tions. Gen. Logan, who used to sit for
me, did not often joke, but he did occa
sionally. He came in one day and saw
Iianging on tho wall a picture of a man
whom ho greatly disliked. He turned
to mo and said : 'I seo you take pictures
of everybody. ' i e3, was my answer;
'that i3 what I am hero for. 'I suppose
you would take a picture of tho devil if
you could get him to sit for you.' 'Of
course. I suppose I could run off a good
many of them in Washington I' 'Yes,'
he replied ; 'that's the best place in the
world to sell them.'
"An old lady once came to me who
wanted a picture, 'full face, but a little
three cornered.' I once asked Dr. Tynj
if ho would not prefer a side view, and
he replied: 'Kq, sir. I am an upright
man. I don t turn to the right or left
for any man.' But amid all tho fun we
also see some very sad tilings. I remem
ber once a woman came in with a bundle
in her arms wluch when unrolled proved
to be the dead body of her little baby.
wiucli sue wanted pnotograpned. 1 re
member onco one of our venerable
judges came in with his wife. I too!;
both their pictures. He was perfectly
satisneu witn nis, but sue am not see::
exactly pleased with hers, said it way to
old. The judge turned to her and re
marked: 'Well, mother, if you wanted
a handsome picture you should have be
gun thirty years ago.' That settled V:
she had nothing more to say. A lady
came to me onco to make an appoint
ment for a friend who, 6he said, was
very difficult to suit. She had tried
doners of photographers and had never
been suited. Of course I promised to
d- the best I could for her. At tho ap
pjlnted timo the lady came. She was
old, and weighed at least 200 pounds.
Her skin looked like a boiled lobster, and
she was clad in low neck and short
oleeves. I did not wonder she was. never
suited. Well, I did my best, but when
the picture was made 6he agreed with
ru perfectly that it did look horrid. She
did not order any of them." New York
Looking for Her Pocket.
"I see you have been poking fun ai
women's pockets," said a lady friend to
tha Stroller. "I am glad of it. Why, it
lias got so now that a woman has to get
out a search warrant to find the pocket
in r. dress when it comes home from the
ii-essraaker. We had a funny case in
poLat in our women's missionary meeting
at the church. The leader of the meeting
had just finished reading a most affect
ing appeal from our lady missionary in
CafTraria, and there was a solemn pause
or expectant attention till Eome bzttr
should feel ioved to speak. Presently
a wnne naireu oiu xaay a motner in
Israel rose 6lowIy and feebly to ker
feet. All eyes were turned upon her,
and we waited to see whether she wished
to mako a few remarks or lead in prayer.
Ono hand, incased in its wrinkled black
kid glove, went fumbling and gropins
among tne tolas or ner siurt. Alter a
long pause she drew out a clean hand
kerchief still in its folds, and then with
an air of relief, slowly sat down again.
She had only risen to find her pocket."
WiUiucr to Obllee the Jury.
An amusing line wa3 spoken in Judga
Garrison's court, in Camden, the other
gawky Jerseyman was on tho wit-
Et-S3 stand, and, instead of speaking so
that the jury could hear him, he per
sisted in mumbling his answers to his
counscL Finally the judge 6aid:
"Will yon kindly speak bo that these
gentlemen can hear you?" pointing to
The up countryman turned around
