Paper and Canvas.
Ill a book entitled "Stories of the
Knglish Artists." H. Da vies and C.
Hunt tell au interesting anecdote of
Turner, the gnat landscape painter.
He disliked to part with his pictures,
I it nil whin he sold one, Invariably wore
I a look of dejection ami oppression. If
u friend asked him what was the mut
' ter, he would scornfully explain: "I've
I lost one of my children this week,"
Once a rich Hirmlnghani inanurac
I Mirer, Gillott by name, Introduced hiiu
1 self to the painter, and stated that he
, had come to buy.
1 "Don't want to sell," or some such
laconic rebuff, with the answer.
The manufacturer then drew from
Ids pocket a bundle of bank-notes,
about Xfi.OOO worth.
"Mete paper," observed Turner, with
grim humor, a little softened, however,
and evidently enjoying his joke.
"To be bartered for mere canvas,"
replied Gillott, waving his hand at the
"Itulldlng of Carthage" and its com
panions. This tone of cool depreciation
seemed to have a happy effect, and
finally Gillott departed with some
5,000 worth of Turner's pictures.
Cleanliness of Amsterdam.
Amsterdam enjoys an enviable repu
tation for its cleanness. Owen Felt
ham, who visited Holland In the sev
enteenth century, was particularly im
pressed by the spotlessness of its
streets and houses. "Whatsoever their
j estates be," he wriU'S, "their houses
.mist he fair. Therefore from Amsler
I .lain they have banlsht seacole, lest it

Town of Many Vicissitudes.
Caitaro, the Austrian sea gate of
Montenegro, which was recently be
leved to be threatened by Prince N'ich-
jlas' guns, was held by Montenegro i
.nice for a time. Montenegro ac- !
jnlied it In 1 S 1 3 with the aid of a llrlt- !
ish squadron. Any Inhabitant of Cat-
laro who was contemporary with the i
rise and fall of Napoleon must often i
nave had to pause and think what i
country he belonged to. For, having
been Venetian for centuries, Cattaro !
became Austrian by the treaty of '
Cainpo Fin tiilo, and Italian in 10." by
Ihe peace of I'resshutg. It was ah- '
sorbed In the French empire in IS 10. '
and wrested from It In 1S13, and
finally, In 1M4, Russia compelled Mon- '
tenegro to give it up to Austriu.

cf Shot Thit Could Ee
Pcured cn It.
"All elie:;.y's fleet c: u!d be sent to
the bottom in tell minutes before gel
ling within five nubs if Gibraltar;'
not even a tin p. , lo boat could succeed i
In entering the bay unobserved on the!
blackest night!" That sums up the!
opinions ot the mint eminent naval!
experts as to the impregnability of'
(he worrld's greatest fortress.
Hut disappointment awaits the
sightseeing isltor. The rock, though
barren, is enured with luxuriant veg
etation; not u fort prominent; not a
gull to he seen even with the most
powerful glasses; no discernible am
munition magazines; no strongholds;
only a peaceful, prosperous harbor
and a sleepy, straggling town.
It Is night and the n,'aneiivers are
3ti. Swift -play lug searchlights trans
form the bay Into a sheet of shimmer
ing silver, upon which are seen ma
jestic Ilrltlsb warships ami elongated
Hying shadow h the torpedoes. Guns
answer guns out of every conceivable
crevice and corner, blending In one
deafening uproar, while scores of
shells plow the water for miles
Sentries are everi where; Infantry
parties crunch In the shadows; hun
dreds of gunners stand ready behind
hundreds of guns lit these mysterious
labyrinths hewn out of the solid rock
"the galleries;" the vicious barking
of tlie Mavlm guns gives contrast to
tlie deeptoned baying of these mam
moth pieces of ordnance, the mere
report of which cracks stone roofs
and bursts doors and whole windows.
Could any fleet live through the mur
derous hail of gigantic shells?
Gibraltar never sleeps. l!y day nml
night two perfectly equipped signal
stations, proudly flaunting llritain's
Has of ownership, unceasingly sweep
the seas around to a distance of fif
teen miles on a clear day, instantly
reporting the coming ami going of
each vessel. Sentries guard all the
prominent forts, magazines ami gate
ways; gunners sleep beside their
gttlis; engineers are ever ready beside
the powerful searchlights.
Modern "needle" guns, the finest In
Kurope, are installed on all the most
prominent points. They are unreach
able from the sea. even as they nr
iindiscernibb', owing to tlie skill with
which they are painted and draped
to match the surrounding vegetation,
while huge screens drop automatically
before them as each shell is fired.
They have a range of fifteen miles
and could drop shells on Ceuta, In
Africa, opposite, tpilte comfortably!
Une gun weighs 110 tons and Is capa
ble oflhrowlng a shell weighing three
quarters of a ton! In that marvel of
engineering under great difficulties,
the galleries, are concealed guns for
every day In the year!
These galleries nre divided Into
three sections, entry to which Is
guarded, while one Is closed even to
high officers, containing preserved
stores, munitions of war, rain water
(for Gibraltar lias no springs! and a
complete condensing plant all calcu
lated to outlast a siege of seven years.
The firing Is the most mathemat
ically perfect imaginable. The sur
rounding waters are mapped out Into
squares, upon which certain guns are
kept ready trained, so that it Is al
most Impossible to miss, during prac
tice targets are towed across the bay,
the object being to hit the water a
few yards In advance of them.
Making Change in New York.
A thin little man with a long beard
and a big bundle boarded a Second
avenue car nt Fifth street the other
day. and when Ihe conductor came
around handed up a $1 bill and asked
for a transfer to the Fourteenth street
The conductor handed tlie passen
ger a half dollar, a quarter and three
dltnes. The thin little man saw the
three dimes and quickly thrust his
change In bis picket. Me didn't wait
until the car got to Fourteenth street,
but alighted at Klghth street. When
he had gone a passenger said to tlie
"You gave that man three dimes In
stead of two."
The conductor did not smile, but
"Ulil I? Well, he'll have a devil of
a time getting rid of tlie half dollar."
