in the streets of Valpariaso led to
the trouble with Chille a little- more

were to be devoted to the moulding
of three statuettes, to be presented
one each to President Harrison,

There were over Uii.tXH) subscribers

The kitchen was across the ter
race a small building by itself. It
had a very wide Dutch window that
would have suited a painter. Into
the squares of the grating that pro
tected the window all Verona was
wroth like a vivid pattern of tapes
try. The cooking here was done by
means of a crane and tripods, over
fagots of wood, upon a broad
hearth of precisely the kind that
Cinderella huddles before in the
picture. Contrary to all expecta
tions, S , the housekeeper, was
able to find much good in these
primitive appliances, and to say
that the wood made a readier and
hotter lire than coal.
The se-vent question was natur
ally one sort of dame in a Spanish
mantilla, who had been employed
by the Franceseliine nuns, below,
to us, but was totally incapable of
comprehending that we colli I not
wait for her ten days. What was to
become of us in the meantime was
no alfair of hers; the only impor
tant fact was that the place suited
her, and she would be glad to take
it in ten days. A certain (Wacinta
was secured to come in by the day
forthe cooking and other heavier
work. She was a stout, smilling,
willing girl, faithful uncording to
light, but easy going shiftless in
her methods. She had a most ex
traordinary equadimity of temper;
with her everything went always
well. The question of wages gave
her no great concern; no rivalry
upset her; no extra demand, no tug
ging of heavy supplies up the steep
from the market, ever appearing to
her inconvenient or iuopportuc.
Then we got for a nurse-maid a
thin, very blonde, and German
looking girl from the province of
I Mantua, inclined to be cross-gained
and moody, but much mor efficient.
Upon her trunk was neatly lettered,
by some friend, probably a clerk.
j "I, a gentilissima Sognorina Mela-
nia So-and So." Melania's pay was
10 frances a month with board, and
(iiaciuta's was 'JO frances without.
These were the Italian prices;
there was nothing excptable about
them; strange as it ma)- seem, they
were even liberal. We know of well
to-do families were where more
work - heavy washing and the like
and the pay was less. The ladies
of Verona complain of their ser
vants, like their sex the world over,
so that it appears paragons are not
produced even under these prime
val rates. The custom was, if either
side were dissatisfied, to give c-ght
days' notice; or this might be com
muted, on the employer's side, in
eight days' pay.
Keeping house again in a new
language was a considerable part
of the opening trials; and, as usual,
it was not even a language, but a
dialect, and even two dialects, one
of each province represented. We
got a sausage some-times for salad,
and cheese for ice. Once Malania
quarreled violently in the kichen,
and came to us and gave in her
resignation. We were serenely un
conscious of what she said, and
she, nonplused by such a situation,
seeing day after day that we had
no idea she was going, felt obliged,
in sheerdispair, to remain.

The Columbian Fair.
The .Nebraska state board of agri
culture, at its late annual meeting,
determined to hold a state fair at
J.incoln.Septeinber 8th to lath, W.l,
to lie called the "Columbian Year
State Fair." Maintaining their place
"in the procession" and imbued
with the Columbian spirit of the
day. the managers are making ef
forts to have this fair sur
pass in all respects anything of
the kind ever presented the public.
The premiun list has been
throughly revised. Unimportant
and fully served fatures have been
stricken out and the more impor
tant, with new ones, enlarged. The
aim is to present such an arry of
products, resources and possibili
ties of the state as will surprise
even the most enthusisstic Nebras
Arrangements will be made to
have excursion trains from the
world's fair at Chicago, to encour
age eastern visitors and foreigners
who wish to study the west, to
come and see the west, to come and
see this state display, examine our
fertile acres.and become acquainted
with our people and surroundings
At this date all indications are

A young drummer from Holly
Spring, who travels for a San An
tonio house, the following story of
how he helped to make Mr. Robert
Peel of Kyle, Texas, happy by
uniting him with his sweetheart,
Miss Carrie Meyer of Seguin, fi oin
whom Mr. IV el had been separated
by a lovers' quarrel.
"(was sitting in my room in a
small Texas town," said the drum
mer, "when Mr. Peel, whom Iliad
not seen for some time, burst ex
citedly in and, without giving any
explanation told me to pack up my
traps. I saw from his manner th.it
I could offer no satisfactory excuse,
and, as I would do anything for
him, I at once got my things to
gether oud set out with him. We
boardad a train, as he directed, and
as soon as it had started he pulled
a telegram from his pocket and
showed it to me. It read:
"'I inn Koiny In lie married at X oYloi It
Weiluemliiy ninlit. I Mill love ymi. Sae
"The message was signed Carrie
Meyers. Mr. Peel said that he and
the young lady had long been in
love with each other and were en
gaged to lie married, when a lovers'
quarrel took place and they sepa
" 'Soon after our quarrel,' he con
tinued, 'she, promised to marry an
other man, and their wedding is to
occur tonight. I just received the
telegram 1 tdiowcd you, and, of
course, I had to try and stop the
wedding. I want to marry her my
self, and knowing that I would be
obliged to Mieal her away from the
intended bridegroom, I thought I
had better get some assistance.'
"This explanation was satisfac
tory, and I resolved to do all in my
power to help them. We only'ar
rived in Seguin an hour before the
ceremony was to take place, audi
set out to the home of the bride-to-be.
1 was cordially received by her
father, and soon had an opportun
ity of seeing Miss Meyers. I told
her of Mr. Peel's presence in town,
and his wish to marry her at once.
With a woman's ready wit she in
structed me to bring hiiu to the
summer house in her yard at once
and she would meet us there.
"I found the impatient lover as
quickly as possible, and, hiring a
carriage, we were soon on the ap
pointed spot. Miss Meyers met us
as she promised she would, and we
three at once got into the carriage
and drove to a hotel. A magistrate
was secured and tin lovers were
soon united in the bonds of matri
mony. After the ceremony had
been performed we caught a train
and left fceguin.
"The greatest confusion reigned
in the house when Miss Meyers' ab
sence was discovered. Her father
knew of her love for Mr. Peel, ami
thought, when he found out that
she was missing, that she had ended
her life rather than marry another
man. He finally learned the truth,
andasihe preacher who had been
engaged to perform the riles which
had been so unexpectedly broken
off by the absence of the expected
bride interceded for the runaway
couple he forgave them.
"The would-be bridegroom was
also brought to lend his forgiveness
to his missing sweet heart, and a
marriage feast was turned into a
banquet. The day after the mar
riage was to have been performed
the disapdointed bridegroom met
Mr. Peel and his bride at the town
in which they were stopping and
magnanimously forgave them.

The superintendent of motive
power of Russian government
railroads has been sent to the
United States to study the rail
roads xvith a view to introducing
American methods in the imperial
transportation systems. The officer
repeats what has already been
knoxvn before.that famine in Rus
sia has caused less by a general
scarcity of food than by the lack of
means of carry inggrain quickly to
certain remote provinces that had
been sorely striken with thedroiigh
It is now the purpose of the czar to
remove this danger by building an
adequate system of railroads, and
the superintendent is confident
that he was sent to the right coun
try for his models. "I think," he
ays, "Hint your American railways
have made stub colossal strides
that you have distanced the re
mainder of the civilized xvorld. I lie
reason of it I believe, is mainly in
fact that you build your roads on a
different principle than we do in
Kurope. You here build a road
and create both passenger and
freight trallicand thus helpdevclop
your country. We build a road
when freight and passenger
traffic demands it." The American
plan is to be tried in the construc
tion of the Trans-Siberian road
xvhich will be I0.IHHI miles long and
xvill give direct access to some of
the most fertile laud of all Asia.

Sioux City, "the corn palace city
of the world," is arranging to hold
another of its unique and peculiar
festivals this year. The date of
opening is fixed for September JOth
continuing until October ISth, IV.l.l,
ami the management promises at
tractions that shall far surpass
anything heietofore presented. It is
expected that many thousands xvho
xvill attend the World's Fair can be
induced to extend their visit to
Sioux City and view the marvels in
cereal decoration which xvill be so
perfectly shown, and at the same
time gain a correct idea of the
greatest corn producing territory,
on the globe.
The New York Sun says: '.When
the immigrants xvho arrive in this
port are registered at Kllis Island,
they are asked to tell their occupa

ord. We have looked over the rec
ord of the o'l.Tll xvho came here
from foreign shores during the past
year. The great majority of them
were common laborers, miners, me
chanics, and farming men, but a
good production of them were de
votees of the higher arts. Thus
there were among them IKK) musi
cians, mostly from Italy: IHKI florists
and gardners, 7J architects, 4.(1 pro
fessional cooks, and no less than MM
barbers. These are surely people
xvho deserve to be welcomed to this
country in the interest of art, sci
ence and the general xvelfare. While
we have some room yet, for earth
diggers and other horny handed
immigrants, xve have vacant space
of incalculable magnitude for first
claes architects and for musicians
(if they are not organ grinders) for
florists, for the best cooks, ami for
really skilled barbers from France.
Atlanta Constitution: Rev. Father
Kelly tells a good one on a man
xvho brought his sou to a Roman
Catholic school. The priest in
charge remarked to the old gentle
man: "It sometimes happens that
young men in the school desire to
become members of our church,
but xve always consult their par
ents or guardians. If your boy
should have such a desire, what is
your pleasure?" "Well,'' the old man
replied, "his mammy is a Methodis"
an' f ain't nuthin' much. She go'-s
ter church once ti month an' I go
twice a year. If the boy wants to
join your church I reckon it xvon't
hurt him," and the old fellow's eyes
Hashed ominously, "if he goes home
any thing else but a democrat
I'll break his neck!" The boy went
home both a devout Catholic and a
true bine Jeffersynian.
