Paris, like all capitals, has its pecul
iar types of character unknown to the
ordinary visitor who, having "done"
the Boulevards and the Champs
Ely sees, thinks he has seen everything.
That this is a mistake need hardly be
said. Paris is full of human curios
ities. One is the raraasseur des bouts
de cigars, who may be seen at work at
all hours of the day and night. He
begins at two o'clock in the morning,
after the closing of the fashionable
cafes and brasseries and before the
street sweepers arrive. At noon after
luncheon he makes another tour
round the drinking and smoking es
tablishments. He now reposes him
self, and sifts his cigarette and cigar
ends. His third and last tour is made
at nine o'clock round the doors of the
restaurants and theatres, where
he reaps his best harvest. On
an average he picks un half a pound
of ends per day, which, after sifting,
drying, and cutting up, he sells to the
rag pickers and other smokers who
cannot afford to have their tobacco
first hand. His earnings range from a
franc to two francs -a day, according
to the weather. When it is wet he
does not gain more than half a franc.
Attentive observers must have seen
him darting in and out under the cafe
tables on the pavements picking up
the remnants thrown away by the
smokers. Legally speaking, his little
commerce is prohibited, but the po
licemen kindly shut their eyes, and in
terfere with him only when he shows
too much zeal and annoys the custom
ers. He is generally a youth or an
old man, too lazy or too feeble to do
other work. It is estimated that
600,000 cigars and cigarettes are
smoked daily in Paris, one-third of
which finds its way into the little sack
of the ramasseur.
Next there is the reveilleur. This is
invariably an old man who has work
' ed long, but who, like too many
toilers, lms reached the last days of
his life without having saved a penny.
He corresponds to the "knocker up"
in Lancaster towns. His occupation
is simplicity itself. The reveilleur
rises at two in the mori ing, whatever
be the season or weather, and pro
ceeds to patrol the working quarters.
His duty is to wako up the workmen,
lest they should ovei sleep themselves
and thereby arrive at the shops too
lateto be admitted without afine. He
has a book in which all the names and
addresses of his clients are written
down. He follows his itineary with
the punctuality of a postman, raises
a cry before each house and does not
move on until he sees the
window open and ' has re
ceived an answer. , For every
every workman thus woke up he gets
a halfpenny per day; most of the
workmen, however, pay him by the
week or month. His best season is,
of course, the winter, when the nights
are long and his services most re
quired. Taking the year round, he
manages to earn a franc daily, which
keeps him from starving or the work
house. Our next type is also a ramasseur,
but of a moro agreeable nature. His
task consists in collecting all the
broken bread ho can iind. It must
not be thought that he gathers the
crusts and crumbs for his own con
sumption. His principle is that noth
ing should be lost; and moreover, he
knows that a piece of stale bread,
hoivever dirty, added to another piece,
helps to fill a sack which, when replen
ished, lie can sell to the rearer of
rabbits for a franc.
A Boy's Essay On Girl's.
The following may be some "liter
ary fellow's" invent ion; if so, it certain
ly hits oil the average boy's notion of
his gill associates: Girls is great on
leaking bleeve. She will make bleeve
a doll is a live baby. She will make
, bleeve she is orful sweet on another
girl or a feller if they come to see her,
and when they are gone she will say:
"Horrid old thing!" Girls is always
fooling a feller. She can't lick yer, so
she gets the best of yer that way. If
yer don't do what a girls says yer
horrid. I drather be horrid than
soft. If yer do what a girl tells you
you will do all sorts of foolish things.
Girls can be good in school every day
if vhey feel like it. I shud think they
would get tired and have to do sum
thing wonce in a while; I know a fellow
does. Girls say fellers act orfull; but
when a girl gets a-going it she acts
S Drfler than any feller darst.
, jThey don't care for nuthing.
If a girl wants a feller to carry
her books home she ain't satisfied un
less she gets the same feller the other
girls want, whether she likes him or
not. Girls is grate on having secrets
I mean telling secrets. They make
secret out of nuthing at all, and then
tell it round to all the other girls, orful
quiet, just as if it was swathing dred
full. I bleeve a girl likes to make bleeve
they are doing sumthing dredfull.
Girls olways gets their joguerfry lesson
better than a feller; but if they are go
ing anywhere they don't know their
way a bit, and they are sure to get
lost. If two fellers has a fight the girls
all go for the feller what lic ks, no mat
ter whether he is good for anything
else or not. If a girl don't feel like do
ing nnythina you can't make her, no
matter whether she had orter or not.
If she won't she won't, and she will get
out of it somehow. That is all I kno
about girls this time. Exchange.
There was once a man who was
deathly afraid of ghosts. A neighbor
resolved to play ghost and haunt him
until he was cured of his foolish idea.
One night, Mr. Wilton (the name of
the man who believed in ghosts) came
home later than usual, and going up
to his room was met by an object all
in white with a hideous grin, whom he
naturally took for a ghost, who said
not a word, but followed him where
ever he went. Mr. Wilton was so
frightened that his teeth chattered,
and he shook violently, and when the
ghost gave hiin a tap on the back and
another grin, he fell down onthetloor.
Tresently he got up and tried to bribe
the ghost to leave him and not plague
him any longer, but theghost answered
him, saying, "You believed in immor
tal things, to I came from my haunts
to visit you until you are willing to
lead a sensible life and cease believing
in or fearing ghosts, then I will
return to my former abode and
never come back more, but if you say
that you do not fear ghosts when you
really do I will haunt you to the grave."
The man suddenly threw himself
across his bed overcome with fright,
but he resolved to not fear ghosts, and
every night for a whole week the ghost
visited the wretched man, but as soon
as the clock struck twelve, the ghost
with a parting grin left the room. The
second week things were no better
than the first, and finally the man re
solved to cure and to rid himself of
the pesterous fellow. So at the next
call Mr. Wilton .welcomed him and
talked to him ascordially as if he had
been his best friend. The ghost could
not stand this, so the next night
when the same cordiality con
tinued, he took off his ghost clothes
and showed Mr. Wilton thas he was
no ghost, but his friend Mr. Treke.
Mr. Wilton and Mr. Treke both had a
good laugh over Mr. Wilton's foolish
fears, and he was cured of it too, Ever
after that they always told that story
as the beat one they knew.

Dear Aunt Belle Did you know I
had lots of toes right on the end of
my feet? They are little, soft, round
things, and they are not on very
tight, but I can't pull them off, for
I've tried and tried.

The Play Corner.
Into a basin of water throw a piece
of money, a ring, or any object, and
propose to take it out without web
ting your hands.
All that you have to do is to sprinkle
the surface of the liquid with a powder
that has no cohension with the water,
and consequently that the water does
not wet. Lycopodium powder, which
may be found in any drug store, have
After having thrown a little of this
powder on the waterplungeyourhand

the ring, and show it to the audience
that you hand is perfectly dry. The
reason of this is that the lycopodium
has formed a perfect glove on your
hand, thus preventing any contact
with the liquid, the same as, for in
stance, ducks plunge their bodies into
the water, and come out perfectly dry,
on account of the oil which is secreted
in their feathers.
A Neat Little Nut Trick.
Take an English walnut and hold it
between the thumb and. middle finger
with tho index finger resting on the
point of the nut.
By pressing hard against the ridge
of the nut with the thumb and middle

it where there is no pressure..

Going Around the World.
There are 1,100 steamers travers
ing the four great ocean routes. The
first is that across the Atlantic, an
other by Suez to, India, China and
Australia. To go around the world
that way takes 80 to 00 days, and
covers 20,000 miles. The passage
money is $1,000, and the traveler who
wishes to go in comfort and ease should
have another 1,000 with him. An
other sea route described i that by
which you start from San Francisco
and sail around the American contin
ent to New York. The journey is 16,
500 miles long, it takes 100 days to
rover it, and the fare is about the
same as that around the world. To go
around the Cape of Good Hope to
Australia nnd back around Cape Horn
is about 23,000 miles, nnd can be
covered in 81 days. The cost is only

Tfcere Arm Ka tfletntes That Are Not
1'ateratl r Cleu.
The very word defines Itself. Pater,
fiat, parent-like, directing and caring
for as would a parent. Therefore
when legislation is of a paternal na
ture It is that species' of legislation
which causes the government to as
sume the oversight as would a father.
There is but two species of legisla
tion, says the Toiler. One is where
the government grants its service, and
the other is where it forces obedience.
It may force obedience where it grants
its service, or may grant its service
where it forces obedience. These two
elements enter into all legislation.
The government grants its service and
compels obedience in our postal sys
tem. It grants its service in the life
saving system along our coast. What
can be more paternal than the systems
named? Take our protective tariff sys
tem, in it the policy ot our govern
ment is to force obedience; this species
is class and yet paternul; it is class
because tho paternal powor is
not extended to all the people. It is
paternal, because the government's
service is extended to certain bene
ficiaries. At this moment we do not
think of any legislation that is not
paternal in its relation to the people,
except the laying and collecting of
revenues. Even our penal system is
paternal in its nature to the public
which it seeks to protect. There are
no statutes but what are paternal or
class in their application, and some are
both. We challenge a contradiction
of this assertion which has been de
ducted from the reasoning just given.
Of the two classes, which is prefer
able? Paternalism, when unadulter
ated with class preferment, ha always
dealtout justice and never monopolies.
Class legislation has never failed to
father combines. : It is paternal for
our government to issue money. It is
class to make preferred receivers ot
this government's service, but it is not
always possible to receive the benefits
of the government's service without a
system which in its nature would
seem class. For instance, suppose the
bogus protective tariff argument was
true, that it was best) for the whole
country that a bounty be paid manu
facturer. then the system would be
paternal in its nature but class in its
application. Class legislation is never
safe unless it is to carry out a paternal
policy which applies alike to all The
tariff Bystem does not do this. The
national banking plan does not do it,
and they were both intended to extend
a paternal hand to the whole country.
The trouble lies in the fact that class
preferment was given too much prom
inence in the two policies cited above.
If the reader has carefully caught the
deductions above, he is ready for this
affirmation. There has never been a
law repealed since our's has been a
government, because of its paternal
nature. Sometimes laws of a paternal
nature have been repealed because of
the special privilege granted in the
application as in the case of the old
United States bank.
It is entirely too late in the day to
begin insisting that the monetary re
form asked for by the Alliance is
paternal It has always been a
paternal duty of the government to
issue money, . The paternal feature
cannot be complained at; if so, where
do you propose to have our money
come from? It is paternal and our
constitution protides for paternalism
because it gives our government abso
lute control of our money.
The Alliance idea . is to secure this
paternal service by a method as void
of class preferment as possible. We
insist that one great argument in favor
of our plan as against the banking
system is that ours will bring so many
thousands yes millions in close
touch with the government, while the
present system brings only hundreds.
The difference is, that hundreds can
combine for selfish purposes while
millions cannot, A combine always
distracts tho parental effort of our leg
islation. We object to the present
banking system on the same grounds
that Andrew Jackson vetoed tho ro
chartering bill for the old United
States bank, viz. : that it puts the cir
culating medium in tho hands of a
sellish combine, or in other words, the
paternal feature is defacadby the class
President Polk's Tribute.
At the meeting of the Maryland
State Alliance, President Polk gave
the following beautiful tributo to the
farmers: "For twenty-five years 1
have been in public life. I never found
myself fighting in the front rank of
(iod's noblemen ' until I struck the
Farmers' Alliance. Let us stand by
our principles until the last man falls
in the light, and then volunteers will
come up and take our places. Men,
citizens, farmers, stand together for
every principle ot our organization,
and a glorious triumph awaits us.
They told us there would bo a division
in tho ranks at tho polls. They who
proclaim divisions did not know us.
There is no i division. Wo do not
know what they are, thank God, and
in that spirit wo will proclaim and
tight for the triumph of our princi
ples." "How Long, Catalinr?"
Cataline was the arch conspirator of
Cicero's time against tho peace, pros

Cicero faced him with some of his
most famous orations, one beginning

"How long. O Cataiino, wilt thou

The People Will Be Free.
It will be time enough ten years
hence to determine whether the re
forms demanded by the people at the
present time are impracticable or not.
Many of our own people who have en
listed in the cause do not seem to re
alize the power and strength of the
enemies of the people. Many of our
own peoplo are expecting immediate
results, and whoa victory is not at
once attained they becomo discour
aged and socle of them give up. We
are facing to-day the imperialism of
capital more formidable and power
ful than all the monarchies of the
world. No reform in the world's his
tory was ever freighted with so many
responsibilities, ever encountered so
great an undertaking, the accomplish
ment of which would be so far reach
ing in results a) the present financial
and political reforms now demanded
by the producing classes of the United
States, and no great reform ever made
more rapid progress. All great re
forms, to bo lasting and permanent,
should move slowly. The groat Amer
ican people move slowly but surely.'
They have always been equal to every
emergency and the great common peo
ple can be trusted. The hope of the
country is in the intelligence of
tho masses. The people are awaken
ing to a realizing sense of their pow
er. This is an age of newspapers
and the rapid dissemination of
thought, and this accounts for the
rapid progress we are making in this
age over other eras. Think of the
great armies of men and womon who
are thinking and studying the great
problems of self government, and
then dare to say they will fail!" Think
of the more than fifteen hundred pa
pers devoted to the caus?, the books,
the pamphlets, folders and leaflets
that are being scattered by the mil
lions and and then talk about failure!
Look at the great labor and industrial
organizations traveling on parallel
lines but gradually converging towards
a general amalgamation, and then say
their demands will go unheeded! For
midable as the money power may bo
intrenched, and difficult as the task
may seem, it will nevertheless be ac
complished and the people will be
free. We must patiently endure to
the end, allowing no obstacles what
ever to obstruct our onward progress.

The Alliance land-loan scheme is
not of recent origin. It has been
practiced beforo aud is now being npi
tated in England. What England is
doing to enable Irish tenant farmers
to purchase their holdings by lending
them the necessary funds from tho na
tional treasury, at a low rate of inter
est, on the security of the land, was
done by Prus.da as long ago as 1850,
with excellent results. The State es
tablished numerous land banks, which
advanced to the peasants the sum nec
essary for tho purchase of the old
landlord rights which were in each
case commuted for a definite sum. The
advance thus made constituted a first
charge on tho land, and was repre
sented by debenture bonds for small
amounts. Tho owner of the land had
tho right to pay to their credit at
whatever time in whatever sums he
was able, installments towards their
redemption, but was bound to redeem
them all fully inside of fifty years.
Withii. a generation similar re
forms have been carried out
in other German states, and by their
means large estates In eiUnire sec
tions of the country have been trans
ferred from reckieu nobles who wrung
from them the means of profligate ex
travagance by oppressing the wretched
tenantry, to thrifty peasant proprie
tors who draw from their small hold
ings the means of virtuous comfort by
the cheerful labor of their own hands.
Between national loans of this kind
and those sought by Senator Stanford's
land-loan scheme is the radical differ
ence that in the former case the total
loan was moderate in amount and
made for the purchase of land which
remained as security for the advance;
while in the latter the money to be
lent would bo almost illimitable in
amount and could be used for any pur
pose for which the borrowers might
choose to employ It ,Mm
