AN ENCLISH PAPER.
Crgae the British la He relr Teatard
The Dutch stock t. we know, sturdy
tad enduring so sturdy and so endur
ing that to tbla hour the descendants
of the Dutch who wttW In New York
ire conscious of shade of difference
between them and New Englanders and
regard that difference with certain self
esteem, says the Spectator.
They are. they think, not only more
solid but better principled than the
families around them. Nevertheless,
the eitraordinary, to us we will frank
ly confess unaccountable, absorbing
force of the English has given them the
tontrolling power in New York, as In
ill America north of Mexico, and In
ipite of the vastness of modern emigra
tions that power will probably always
emaln In their hands. A new type of
man arises, dlstlntively American, but
It is as aln to say that he Is not In
til essentials English as to say that tha
Baxon at home has not prevailed over
every other element In the population.
We expect to see the process repeated
In South Africa, but we can see no
reason why It should not be peaceful
or Vhy, when the united dominion Is
formed, as it will be formed, the differ
ent states should all enter It on exactly
the same conditions. Scotland does not
live under our laws nor in Germany
have Bavaria and Wurtemberg precise
ly the same position. What the British"
people have to do is to see that the
history of the new people which Is be
ing born and which Is already tainted
by the presence of a black race and the
Oerceness which is generated in the
dominant caste by black resistance,
should not be further tainted either
by militarism or by pecuniary corrup
tion. There has been too much vlo
ISJjce, sometimes Just, sometimes un
ust, in the history of South Africa;
and if the British people is to extend
Its sovereign protection over the whole
region as It did virtually when it re
solved to forbid German troops to land
In Delagoa bay it must extend also
ths Pax Britannlca, the regime of law,
Instead of willfulness, under which na
tions grow serenely up to their destined
height. The Boers must be persuaded
pr compelled to accept that regime Just
as much as the English and the natives
but they do not seem unwilling; they
have behaved during the recent occur
rences in a more than civilised manner,1
and If they are willing there Is no rea
son why, within the regions given them
by treaty, they should be prematurely
or roughly deprived of their ascend
ency. It will depart in good time, as
the ascendency of the ten-pounders
within these islands did.

"Dear one," he whispered.
The young wife looked up into her
husband's face tremulously but expect
ant. "What la It?" she asked, as her white
arms stole around his turndown collar.
"Tell me," he answered, straining her
to his breast and forgetting for the mo
ment two imported perfectos in his
pocket. "Tell me that you will think
of me sometimes when I am gone!"
Once more the pale, sweet face was
upturned toward him.
"You are always, and ever will be, la
my thoughts," she said, simply.
"Then swear you will be true to me
while I am away from your side," he
continued, with a tone of almost com
mand In hla voice.
"I swear It!" she repeated, solemnly.
With one more pasionate, frenzied
kiss upon the parted, trembling lips he
wrenched himself away. He was not
quite happy but he was comforted by
the assurance of her love. He felt that
neither time nor absence could kill it.
With unfaltering step he turned his
back upon hla home and went to get
his Sunday shave. New York World.
An Eaatarn Woman's Club Affair.
The Colonial Dames of New Haven,
Conn., have Just closed a most inter
esting colonial exhibit. The three days
of exhibition had each their distinct
ive "afternoon tea." On Wednesday
the table and service were distinctly
puritan In decoration and dress. On
Thursday the revolutionary period,
with Its colors of old blue and white,
was honored, and on Friday the table
and attendants were gorgeous in the
colonial colors of red, blue, and buff.
Many interesting articles were exhibit
ed, representing not only the old fam
ilies of Connecticut, but of other New
England states and of New York,
Delaware and Virginia, No article
shown represented a later date than
1783. There were several autograph
letters of Washington, handsome old
silver and china, some of It once used
at Mount Vernon, and miniatures,
laces, fans and gowns. A goodly sum
was realized, which will be used in
founding a "genealogical corner" In the
Connecticut Historical library.
Famous Hermit's Death.
Dr. Lazarus, the famous hermit, who
has for years lived on the top of Sand
mountain, in Marshall county, Ala.,
died the other day. Twenty years ago
he was a prosperous physician In New
York, and his father was a wealthy
merchant. In Wilmington, N. C. Be
coming imbued with socialistic teach
ings, he Joined several communistic as
sociations, which failed, and this made
him morbid. He adopted peculiar
views, banished himself from society,
and for years lived like a hermit, with
goats as his only companions.
Animal That Buries Itself.
The only animal known in the world
which, on the approach of dissolution,
eeeks out the general burying ground
of Its species, and there digs Us own
grr.e and lies down to die, is the
fuanaco, of wild llama. It is peculiar
in other respects, too. These ani.nals,
In fact, have a regular sanitary sys
tem, which they respect like human
AFRICA. ENGLAND. GERMANY.
Latter Waete the t'arvat In tha Itaala
r tha I nper Conga.
The object of Germany at the present
moment is to connect her eastern and
outhwetern African possessions, save
the Quarterly Review. To do this she
desires to possess (he forest in the
basin of the Tpper Congoa region
which is rich in copper. If she could
obtain this territory from the Congo
itate and a narrow strip of land from
Portugal she would realize her aim;
nl If ghe gets possession of the forest
on the Lualaba and the Katanga cop
per mines ber colonies may become to
her a great source of wealth. England
should definitely make up her mind as
to the attitude she will assume toward
this policy. If she opposes It Germany
will become a persitrtent enemy. On
the other hand, if she supports it Ger
many should agree not in any way to
Interfere with England south of the
Zambesi and support her heartily In
Egypt. The increase of German pros
perity at home is also an advantage
to ua. As Germany becomes richer she
will become a better customer and less
(ealous of the political position. The
wages of German artisans must go up
and consequently Germany will be less
able to undersell us in the open mar
kets of the world. We have now come
to a state of things as regards the
German empire when we must either
come to terms with it or drift Into a
position which will certainly lead to
danger. The Germans, If they are to
maintain their possesions beyond the
sea. must either be sure of the friend
ship and good will of England or else
Ihey will endeavor to break down her
power on the ocean. Since the begin
ning of this year every corner of the
empire has rung with the most violent
denunciation of this country. The
newspapers, with the almost solUary
exception of the Weser Zeltung, have
given expression to feelings of bitter
hostility. Organs of opinion usually
the most opposed have vied with
each other in their violence of lan
guage. This ill feeling to Great Brit
ain, as we have said, has not been a
growth of recent times. It is now
strengthened by a growing conviction
that the position of England in tha
world Is undeserved, artificial and
cannot be maintained If it is a-rlously
menacefl. This view has been fostered
by distinguished historians and men of
letters, who exercise a powerful influ
ence on the youth of the country, on
the guides of public opinion, on writers
in the principal periodicals and Jour
nals who indirectly shape the policy of
the cheap newspaper, which Is the gos
pel of the village Inn.
Tha Carman Emperor's Children.
How the German emperor will bring
up his only daughter is no subject
of wonderment to the Berliners. They
know that, princess as she Is, she will
be taught to be a good housewife, to
sew, to cook perhaps, and to order din
ner certainly. For the sovereign's ideal
woman Is a strictly domestic person,
as his Ideal man Is a stout soldier. His
little boys haven't much fun in their
dally lives. Concerning these lives the
Sketch says: In the Spartan upbring
ing of Ms children the kalstr rivals his
tncestor, Frledrlch Wilhelm of Prussia.
According to Klausmann's "Leben in
Deutseb.cn Kalserhaus," the life of the
royal cl Udren of Berlin Is not sweet
ened by hours of Inactivity. In their
years of infancy the kaiserln ministers
to almost all their wants, spends a
good pp.rt of the day with them and
enters Into all their amusements, When
the princes arrive at the age of 9 things
are all changed and it is all work.
They are then a' lowed about an hour
and a half out of their waking hours to
themselves; all the rest of their day
Is spent In study and physical training.
Even in holiday time their tutors ac
company them to superintend their
studies. Philadelphia Ledger.
Afraid to Wear Their Jewel.
A curious fact concerning the festiv
ities over the coronation of the czar
is the enormous Impetus given to the
manufacture of paste gems. Russians,
It appears, even of rank and status,
are prone to the weakness known as
kleptonrnla, and wise women prepared
for possible loss by substituting sham
Jewels for real. A pageant and display
such as has been described must in
evitably call for the wearing of such
gems as are seldom seen. It Is rather
amusing to learn that much of the
splendor Is pretense and that, too, be
cause the grand dames do not dare
trust their treasures in a crush, even
though the crowd be composed of their
own kind. Among the Muscovites, how
ever, the sin is said to be held a trifling
one, and the story is told that one lady
of high rank was caught appropriating
her cousin's emeralds, and that the vic
tim declined to prosecute, mcrMy say
ing: "Poor Sophie! It is a very pain
ul and nervous disorder." New York
A Speaking Gown.
A well-known club woman the jther
day went to her dressmaker to order a
gown. The woman asked at once:
"Shall you wear It to the club meet
ings?" The reply was in the affirma
tive. "And to make speeches in?"
was the next question. Again she
said yes. "Then I must have it
trimmed accordingly," said the dress
maker. "It will be eyed closely and
for long periods of time at once by
women at leisure to observe. Such a
gown must be absolutely perfect."
In That Day.
Shade of the Period "In your day,
as I understand it, there was no glori
ous death except in battle." Shade of
Achilles "That is substantially cor
rect. They did not operate for appen-
dicitis then." Detroit Tribune.
If the armies of Europe should
march at an eight-mile gait, Ave

require nine and one-half days for
them to pass a given point.
THIS GIRL WANTrO A WHEEL.

Matching a hall.
She was a pretty girl and when h
entered the bicycle store she wore a
plcmaed. Inuocent expression a she
gated round at the machine with the
gentle air of one who has found a new
chamber of horrors or curiosities, says
the New York Herald.
The salesman was unsuspecting and
smiled his best.
"I want to buy a bicycle, please."
she said casually, in the mime lone- the
would have used to buy a spool of
thread. This unbusinesslike method
of hers left him gaspinn If he had
been wise he would have dragged out
his pencil and order book and said:
"Yea'ni. What number, please? It
will be put up tomorrow," and llnlshed
the sale on the spot. Hut he was not
wise. He scrambled to get back on
the beaten path of sales methods. "Do
you ride?" he asked, as she waited
"Oh, no." she answered, "I Just
thought today It would be nice, so I
came after the wheel.
"Do you want a drop frame or a dia
mond?" be ventured, mildly.
The pretty girl looked punled. "I
didn't say anything about diamonds."
she corrected, a trifle severely. "And I
should think a frame that dropped
would be convenient can't you fasten
The salesman coughed softly and
scowled at the man In the gallery who
was sympathizing dramatically with
him. "We can fix It for you," he mur
mured. "No," as he observed her eye
light on a dark-blue wheel, "that
wouldn't do for you. The gear Is too
"Why don't you let it down, then?"
she asked. Interestedly. "Where Is ItT
I don't see It."
the salesman retired behind a pile
of sheltering machines and had It out
with himself. When he emerged he
led two wheels and talked black In the
face, explaining their excellencies and

all this time, and when he stopped to
recover breath she smiled courteously.

me any more, because it might Just aa
well be Sanscrit. I can't see a bit of
difference in wheels they all look
alike to me as do boats. Why do they
have so many different names?
The salesman looked Into her deep-!
blue eyes and calmed bis turbulent
mind. "I really don't know," he said.
"It seems to be a fad of the manufac
turers." "And I suppose It gives some onef
employment, thinking up names, she
put In charitably.
The salesman grew desperate and
fingered his pencil. "Which one shall
I send up?" be asked, as a gentle re
minder. She was plunged In thought "I
had no Idea they painted them in so
many different colors," she said, half
to herself. "I'll have to think it over.
You see. I haven't decided what I'll
get for a bicycle suit, and, of course
the wheel must match it. I'll let you

Dn Manrler and Clara Hoichele
In 1858 my father came on a visit
to Antwerp with my mother and my
youngest sister, Clara. Wherever my
father took up his abode, even tem
porarily, a grand piano In the natural
course of events would gravitate to
ward him and a select circle of art lov
ers would soon be grouped around it.
Among the friends In the Antwerp
circle were Van Lerlus, Tadema, Baron
Leys, Huysmans and Bource. My sis

py creature, not long out of her teens,
full of hopes, alas! never to be real
