A Short Story in Figures.
The ordinary annual expenditures of the Government averaged in President
Harrison's term 5'!iit,2!)l, 33.
They average-! in President Cleveland's second terms ?300,41S,5-l6.
They have averaged in President McKinl'oys term g,)14,4:J0,251.
The cost of running the Government is liius Reeo to have been increassable bv
nearly $154,000,000 a year ever since MrMcKlnley was inaugurated. pAnd this is
not accounted for by the extraordinary disbursements of the war, which are not
iacluded in these "ordinary expenditures."
The outlay for war is a separate matter, and it accounts for the increase of the
public debt by 200,000,000 since Mr. M.-Kinloys, luaugcration.
The financial record of the Administration npay therefore be summed up in a
sentence. H has added nearly 13,000,000 a month to the regular running expen
ses of the Government and added $1.79 per capita to the national burden of debt

PAfROH SAINT OF LAWYERS
How many readers know the naum of te patron saint of the lawyer? Very
few, Mr. Croake James, in his book of 'Curiif.ities of Law and Lawyers," tells us.
It at pa s that in the fourteenth century St. Jivona, or Ives, of Brittany, a famous
Lawyer of his time, was lamenting that his 'profl'ession had .no patron saint to
look up to. So he went to Rome and asked the Pope to set the matter straight.
The Pope was puzzeled. Finally be told the lawyer to go blindfolded around the
church of San Giovanni, anil after he had said it certain number of Ave Maria's the
first saiut be took hold of should be bis patrons, fct. Evona followed directions,
and at the proper moment, laying his hands oh an image, proclaimed with joy.
"This is our saint this be our patron." liut when the bandage was taken from
bis eyes he round that he had stopped at the ajtar of St. Michael, and instead of
taking hold of St. Michael himself he had griped the figure beneath St. Michael
feet the devil! It is said in an old legend Unit St. Evona was so dejected over the
outcome of his enterprise that in a few months he died. When at St. Peters gate
ha knocked for admittance and explained thatflia was St. Evona, the advocate, he
was told thai there was no room in heaven for lawyers. "Oh, but" said St. Ev-
oua, ''I am that hone.-.t lawyer who never toojfiees on both sides, nor pleaded in a
bad cause; nor did I ever set my neighbors together by the ears, nor live by the
sins of the people." St. Peter's fa art was moved and he let the suppliant in,
whereupon the pood advocate of Brittany became the patron saint of lawyers hiirv

The saying that Paris is France con
tains, of course, only half a truth. No
metropolis can fully exibit the life of a
people. But, on the other hand, it is
doubtless true that no other capital city
is so representative as Paris of all that
characterizes the nation; and this over
shadowing importance of the . French
capital has never been so marked as in
the last years of our closing century.
But, during the Exposition period, Paris
becomes also a rendezvous and center of
ideas for the whole world. The Exposi

City of Paris occupying itself with the
entertainment of a sort of congress of
