Names and ltiislnessFs.
Thcro is at times a jeculiar coin"i

ami his liusim-ss. Sneh an aiproiiiate

quite ace-Mental. "Sexton Brothers,
Undertakers and Upholsterers," is the
wording of a tsign at Long Branch, and
a dressmaker on Clinton street, New
York, bears the name of N. Nadel (the
(Jen nan for needle). To those who un
derstaiKl German, Schneider will seem
an equally appropriate name for a dress
maker, and there are plenty of butchers
in town named Metzger, while at least
one barber glories in the name of Schcc-r-er.
But it seems odd that a Baecker
should deal in meat, or that even an
Avenue A. Barber should sell lieer.
However, when we hear of "Tajlor &
Cutter," a lirm of clothiers, or find that
'Stickwell & Co." are mucilage makers,
there is a strong suspicion of an inten
tional manufacture of appropriate firm
names. And that story about the bro
ker firm of "U. Ketcham & I. Cheatham"
has been told so often that one hardly
knows whether to credit it or not. New
Centralization of Government.
The history of the federal govern
ment is one of growing strength and in
fluence. The difference between the
intention of the founders of tho system
and of the existing fact is nearly as
great as that between the opinions of
Jefferson and moderate Federalists.
From the first organization of the gov
ernment to the present time there has
been almost a steady advance toward
centralization. This advance has been
both aided and retarded by the supreme
court; but in the legislative branch of
the government and in the popular mind
the proportions of the federal govern
ment have constantly grown larger. It
has not been the tendency of the people
of the republic to strengthen the local
government at the expense of the general
government. On the contrary, the gen
eral government has grown at the cost
of the states. Henry L. Nelson in Har
The Nepalese "Konu"
The Nepalese "knliir', or heavj'

weapon, the "kora," the most strangely
shaped sword ever used, which, starting
from the hilt about an inch and a half

The Danger of M-etaphor.
Metaphor and simile, poignant wea

produce disastrous effects in the hands
of tho inexpert. Certain figures, orig

bleak sense of depression from the fre
quency of their employment by halting
speakers, and one who desires to engage
the understanding of an audience ought,
at whatever sacrifice, to take a pledge
of total abstinence from such outworn
phrases as "the thin end of the wedge,"
"oil on the troubled waters," etc. Some
times, it must be confessed, the audience
derives unexpected and lasting enjoy

the course taken by one of his colleagues
in the representation of Ireland will re
member the rich brogue in which he re
ferred to him as "the young sea serpent
from County Clare," and how he was
promptly called to order by the speaker
for using the expression. "Very well,

The Migration of Reindeer.
The annual migration of the reindeer
from Lapland in search of food has now
become a serious matter. In the first
place, it necessitates the migration of
man, for if owners want to keep their
deer and their property they must fol
low them wherever they wander. Sec
ondly, the migrating animals travel in
6uch great herds that they do not a little
damage to the meadows, plowed lands
and forests. There seems to be no stop
ping it. The deer migrate with more or
less regularity, and within a week or
two of the usual time a hundred thou
sand reindeer come to Tromsoe, which is
the meeting point. The owners simply
see that their herds do not get away.
But this invasion of reindeer is viewed
with alarm by Scandinavian farmers.
who have their crops trampled down
The farmer may sue for damages, but if
he obtains a judgment in his favor how
is he to find the defendant? Some seven
or eight years ago a special law was
passed to meet the case. The country
is divided into districts, and if the own
ers of the destructive animals cannot be
found the district is held for the dam
age, each family paying in proportion to
the number of reindeer they possess. J.

Handel, the Composer.
tjeorge a reuencK iianaei, who was a
composer at the age of nine, and had
written three operas before he was
fifteen, was a man of uncommonly large
appetite, and it is told of him that when
ever he stopped at an inn or elsewhere
where the host was not familiar with
the greatness of his hunger he would
order dinner for three.
Upon one occasion he gave his order
for three as usual, and when the hour
for dinner arrived he called to his host:
"Ees de tinner retty?"

HOW THEY CARRY THEIR MONEY.
KeacUiifr the harm ter of I'eopl In the

"1 can tell you tho businessof (six men
out of every ten who coiuo in here, and
the social btandiug of all of them, from
tho way they carry their money," said a
Broadway ticket seller for ono of the
sound steamboat lines to a rejiorter.
"Did you ever think how much of a
person's individuality is expressed in his
method of carrying his money? I see
Ieoplo every day get at their chango

"That man," said the ticket seller, as
an old gentleman who had purchased a
pasteboard good for a trip to Boston
went out, "is a retired banker. Did you
notice that ho carried his money in a
long morocco iocketbook? That pocket
book is always carried in the inside
riocket of his coat, ou the right side. It
contains a number of bright, clean bills,
all neatly smoothed and laid out at full
length and right side up. He novel

"Tho young broker or wholesale mer

"The clubmen invariably carry a roll
of clean five dollar I ills in their vest
pocket, where they can bo easily reached.
Some carry only gold. James Brown
Potter favors gold, and usually carries a
few quarter eagles in a small silver case,
into which the coins lit without rattling.
Lispenard Stewart usually has a roll of
new bills in his vest pocket.
"The man who comes in and fishes
from a deep trousers pocket a lot of ono,
two and five dollar bills that have been
twisted up liko a gun wadding I always
set down as a sporting 'gent.'
"The farmer on an excursion to 'Bos
ting' counts up the price of a ticket in
quarters and halves from a tan colored
leather pouch that is tied up with a
string run through small slits near the
top. The seafaring man on his way to
his home on the Maine coast carries the
proceeds of his last trip in a calfskin
wallet. It has been handed down from
his father, or perhaps his grandfather,
for it is black and shiny with age. It
has a long strap passed through a num
ber of cross straps. The cross sections
seldom have more in them than tobacco
dust or a frayed tax receipt that show
that he owns a house. But in the cen
ter of the wallet is a place where bills
may be laid out straight and covered
with a calfskin flap from either sido.
"The man who carries change in hia
coat pockets has been a car conductor
at some time or other. The fellow who
draws ten cent pieces from every jiocket
in his clothes is a peanut man or vender
of small wares.
"The women, too, have a variety of
ways to carry their money, though their
lack of pockets limits their vagaries in
that direction. Tho young woman with
fluffy hair, who has tho price of her
ticket rolled tightly in her palm, has a
m3'sterious storage place for money
somewhere. When she is not spending
it she puts it where no man will ever go
after it, but the place is accessible to
her slim fingers in a second." New
Reply from the Pew.
"Joe" Jones, one of Sam's numerous
brothers, has enlisted in the ministry.
His first sermon was preached in a coun
try church at Pine Log before a large 1
congregation of farmers, backwoodsmen
and crackers. Sam's methods were fol
lowed with considerable success, but
when Joe branched off on his own hook
he struck a snag. He caused his hearers
to wince when, slapping the Bible nearly
off the pulpit, he exclaimed:
"A man what will cuss a oath'll
There was a lively shifting among the
pews and much cautious looking around
and head shaking. Joe saw, and deter
mined to push his point.
"Brethren and sisters," ho repeated,
"1 want to say to you that a man what
will cuss a oath'll steal! What have
yon got to say to that."
An aged cracker arose at the back of
the church and, fastening his glittering
gray eye on Joe, drawled through hi?
"All I got ter say is it's er gol dern lie!"
Joe was so discouraged that he restea
on his oars two weeks before making
any more bold assertions. New York
