Eight Thousand Flowers on the Table.
It must take nearly half an acre of
glass to cover the flowers of the White
House conservatory. It keeps two men
busy all the time to take care of it, and
the finest of all kinds of flowers from
orchids to roses are in bloom here. There
are broad india rubber plants which
are worth from $30 to $100 apiece, and
there are some flowers which are abso
lutely worth their weight in gold. On
the night of a White House dinner or
reception the whole mansion is deco
rated with flowers, and at one state
dinner not long ago there was a floral
piece cn the table which tised 8,000 flow
ers in its making.
At a dinner to the supreme court 2,000
flowers were nsed to make a temple of
justice, and at the last diplomatic recep
tion the mantels of the parlors were
banked np with flowers, and at another
time they were covered up with im
mense double tulips rising out of banks

A Mixed Up Affair.
Recently on the Marietta and North
Georgia railroad a train ran over and
killed a cow near Thompson, Tenn. A
day or two afterward, when the train
passed through, an officer arrested the
engineer and took him before a justice
of the peace, where he was tried foi
cruelty to animals. The passenger train
was held four hours, during which time
the mails were delayed. It seems that
the prosecutors have gotten themselves
in a bad fix.
Warrants have been issned by a judg6
for Ihe arrest of the justice of the peace,
the officer who made the arrest, the
sheriff and the lawyer for contempt of
court, as the road is in the hands of a
receiver and permission must be secured
to sue the road. The superintendent r-f
themail service is also after them.
A Japanese Anniversary.
This year being the 1,100th anniver
sary of the Emperor Kwammu's estab

people are busy preparing for a suitable
celebration of the occasion. Kioto ciy
was founded by the Emperor Kwammu.
who took up his abode in Yamashiro
province, which was then unbuilt, and
gradually the city arose around his pal
ace, so that the emperor's memory is
especially honored. There will proba
bly be an exhibition opened in Kioto for
the occasion. San Francisco CalL

What We Want Is Sounds.
We have no symbols to represent the
Bound of a sigh, a kiss, a chirp, a groan,
though characters expressive of these
would be of great service to novelists;
but, on the other hand, wo have three
dihiinct characters f, ff and ph ex
pressing exactly the same sound.
Then how imperfect and arbitary wo
are in the use of those symbols which
we possess; th is all we can eio to ex
press the initial sound of thing and
thine, though a Welsh writer .pan show
the difference by making the former an
aspirated t, the latter an aspirated d;
yet in this repect we are better off than
the French, who cannot employ the as
pirated dental at all. Englishmen are
inclined to wonder why the Chinese,
with all their ancient civilization, have
no sj-mbol for the consonant r, and are
apt to forget that, except at the lx-gin-ning

dundancy. The following sentence, for example,
might be perfectly well expressed in
Chinese characters, "Sour barts are
more alarming than certain earls," for,

Early Railway Traveling.
The first regular train service in Eng
land commenced on the Liverpool and
Manchester railway on Friday, Sept. 17,
1830, two days after the opening' of the
line. It was not on a very ambitious
scale; three trains each way on week
days and two on Sunda3Ts were deemed
quite sufficient. The novelty of the
thing, however, at first and very soon its
proved safety and efficiency, led at once
to a much larger traffic than had been
anticipated, and as soon as the company
could obtain more rolling stock the ser
vice was increased.
For a time people who had ventured
to risk their lives by the new mode of
conveyance were the objects of admira
tion for their courage or of contempt
for their foolhardiness; but one by one
the coaches had to be taken off the road,
and everybody went by rail.
The time occupied in the journey was
at first seldom more than two hours and
often less, the distance being thirty-one
miles; but even this rate was too fast
for some people, for a gentleman, writ
ing about six weeks after the opening of
the line, says the speed was- too great to
be pleasant and caused him to feel some
what giddy. Cornhill Magazine.
The Girdle Is Useful.
A most useful article for ladies to
have in their possession is a girdle, the
like of which a friend of mine has just
brought from Paris. The girdle is made
of gold lace or filigree, substantial, but
not harsh, and is 6tudded all over with
jewels of various colors. The ends are
passed around the waist from the front,
crossing behind, and, again coming for
ward, are allowed to fall in front or on
one side, being fastened loosely shortly
below the waist. The ends are finished
off with gold fringe.
The girdle is most adaptable and can
be worn with a morning wrapper, a tea
gown, or an evening dress. When 1
saw it, it was "associated with a summer
tea gown of pretty design. The material
was a combination of cotton and wool
in pale blue, with white stripes. It had
a sailor collar, with narrow lace edging
and lace cuffs. The garment was de
cidedly loose, and of fair length behind.
The Jews and the Moon.
Dr. Goldziher refers to the occasional
luniolatry of the Jews. "Queen or
princess of heaven," he writes, "is a
very frequent name for the moon. Even
in the latest times the Hebrews called the
moon the 'Queen of Heaven,' and paid
her divine honors in this character at
the time of the captivity. What was
the antiquity of this lunar worship
among the Hebrews is testified (as has
long been known) by the part played by
Mount Sinai in the history of . the He
brew religion. The mountain must in
ancient times have been consecrated to

A Bright tittle Animal.
Taking his size into consideration, the
mole is the strongest animal we know.
Whatever he does, too, he does with all
his might. One can see the reason of
the comparison "blind as a bat;" but
why folks should ever say "blind as a
mole" is incomprehensible to me. Watch
him as he runs about in the bright sun

and tell me whether you think those

Thoso who are middle aged well re

In thoso years colored stockings, except

Duncan Campbell Scott in Youth's Com
panion. A Mine Under the Sea.
There are in England several coal and
metalliferous mines which extend and
are worked at a considerable distance
out to sea. But perhaps the most re
markable stibinarine coal mine is that at
Nanaimo, on Departure bay, beyond
Victoria, B. C. This mine is known a
the Wellington, and its galleries are
situated COO feet below the surface of
the ocean, which here incloses an archi
pelago of islands very similar to the
Thousand islands at the head of the St.
Lawrence river. The galleries of this
pit, which are continually developing,
extend at present a length of six miles
under the bottom of the waters of the
Nearly the whole population of the
town of Nanaimo, amounting to nearly
1,000, is engaged in the mines of the
place, the average daily wages per heael
being from twelve to twenty-three shil

to be the cost of living in that inhos
pitable region is so high that the miners
can after all only just make both ends
Three Humorous Titles.
Among the whimsical titles which ap
pear on the pages of national history,
few are more apparently frivolous than
the Duke of Marmalade, the Count of
Lemonade and the Earl of Brandy.
They are, or were, however, real titles,
bestowed by a genuine monarch on
three of the favorites, and that, too,
during the present century. In 1811 a
revolution occurred in Hayti, and Chris
tophe, a negro, declared himself em
peror. Through conspiracy and plot,
his life often attempted, he retained
power till 1820, preserving to the last
the appearance of a royal court and cre
ating a numerous ability.
Among them were the three already
mentioned, and the oddity of the titles
has suggested to many writers the friv
olousness of the African character. In
fact, however, all three, names were
those of places, the first two being origi
nally plantations, but latterly towns of
some importance. This fact not being
generally known, a misapprehension has
arisen with regard to the titles them
selves, which, however absurd, are
scarcely more so than some which were
bestowed in France and Germany dur
ing the Middle Ages. Boston Tran
script. English Rulers and the Language. -
Unlike most other countries England
has repeatedly been governed by for
eigners, who thought so little of their
people that they did not even take the
trouble to learn the language of their
subjects. Most of the Danish kings
knew no English, and if William the
Conqueror, William Rufus and others
knew the language they kept the fact to
The early French kings, in fact, re
garded England as a conquest and
France as their home. Richard I, for
instance, spent but a few months of the
ten years of his reign on English soil.
In modern times George I neither knew
nor cared to learn English, and George
H spoke it very imperfectly. St. Louis
