There has been an English o h ny in
the 1-Veiicli capital for lii.niy n uliiii.-s,
yet one might search in vi in for a .sifi
ilar Fr inli colony in London. 'Ihe
Leicester ami Soho square diM riefs, al
though owning to a large French popu
lation, possess hardly a trace of the
llavor or mini that distinguishes t ho
quarter the English frequent in Paris,
and it is not a tilth the size.
To speak broadly, Paris haswiihia
its walled borders a little Loudon of
many thousand persons not squilid
and impoverished, hut b lasting splen
did mansions, line simps, hotels,
churches, hospitals and libraries, and
all these to such an extent that it is
difficult to believe one is not m lie
British capital itself.
The inhabitants of this colony mi'.ht
roughly be catalogued as follows: Le-
tiivd people and gentlefolk who have
Keen, better days, those who desire to
have their children educated in the lan
guage, business people, authors, artists,
fctudents, journalists and professional
men, those wlio have the best of private
rcasor.s for living out of England and
cranks, whi h term includes certain in
dividuals who for some cause or other
have developed a feeling of hatred for
the laud of their birth. INcarly ail arc
exiles of their own accord.
G:i Sunday Ihe elite of the English
colony turns out to the Church of the
Embassy in the line d'Agucs.seau. Here
for a number of years Jr. Nayes, who
was formerly a Leytonstono incumbent,
has preached, and here a collection bag
goes regularly round, and is as regular
ly returned hi u condition of compara
tive emptiness. For your Englishman
of tho English colony is either in a con
dition to help largely sujiport the church
aud does or else gives nothing at all.
One thing must l.e said about tho
English and Americans who go to Paris.
They support tho city. Without their
patronage there is scarcely a big shop
oil the boulevards that would not close
its doors within a few months. L-wnlon
SPAIN'S LOSING GAME.
TliingK Which Have Slipix-il From Her
(iraxp lu Three I'tniilred Years.
Macaulay drew this picture of the
power of Spain 'JUO years ago:
The empire of Philip II was undoubt
edly one of the most powerful and
splendid that ever existed in tlie world.
It is no exaggeration to say that during
.several years his power over Europe
was greater than even that of INapoleon.
In America his dominions extended on
both sides of tho equator into the tem
perate zone. There is reason to believe
that his annual revenues amounted, in
the season of his greatest power, to a
sum ton times as large as that which
England yielded to Eli.alr th. He had a
standing army of 50,000 troops when
England did not have a single battalion
in constant pay. He held, what no oth
er i)r i nee in modern times has held, the
dominion both of the land and the sea.
During the greater part of his reign he
was suxirenie on both dements. His sol
diers marched up to the capital of
France; his ships menaced the shores of
England. Spain had what Napohon de
sired in vain ships, colonies and com
merce. She long monopolized tho trade of
America anil of the Indian ocean. All
the gold of the west and all the spices
of the east were received and distribut
ed by her. Even after the defeat of the
armada English statesmen continued
to look with great dread on tlie mari
time power of Philip. Whoever
wishes to be well acquainted with the
morbid anatomy of governments, who
ever wishes to know how great states
may be made feeble and wretched,
should study the history of Spain. Ex
change. A Famous Apple Tree.
The American Cultivator says that
the original greening apple tree is still
standing on the farm of Solon. on
Drowue at Blount llygeia in North
Foster, R. I. The tree was a very old
one when the farm was sold in isoi.
The seller informed the purchast r that
it was a pity the old tree was "iing
into decay, as it produced the best fruit
of any tree in the orchard. The pur
chaser determined to see how long he
could keep it alive, and it still survives,
after almost another century has been
added to its venerable years. But it
shows signs of final decay, and the par
ent of all the famous Rhode Island
greenings, which has set its grafts on
the orchards of almost all the world,
will soon he but a neighborhood memo
ry. It is doubtful if there is a more fa
mous apple tree to be found in all Po
mona's groves from end to end of the
Kfene's Quarter Cigar.
Tom Keene was a good story teller.
"For ten years, " so went one cf his
tales, "I bought all my theatrical cos
tumes from one dealer, and as during
much of that time I was playing many
new parts in the old California theater
stock company of San Fruncisco my
trade was a matter of considerable im
portance. Winn I was about to leave
the slope and come east, I went to make
a final order and bid my c-ostunu-r good
by. 'I'm very sorry you're g .i:ig. ' he
said. 'Here, .Take!' calling to a clerk.
'Run out and get Mr. Keene a good
quarter of a dollar cigar. '
"As Jake started my costumer whis
pered bfchind his hand, 'Two for a quar
ter, Juke; two for a quarter.' "
