New York Sun: Since 18C0 Mont BSanc has been a pari of France. The moun tain ia often referred to still as In Swica territory, but no part of Mont Blanc proper 1b within the limits cf that re- j puonc A diplomatic areen:enc in 1P00, however, gave to both Switzerland and Italy a part of Mont Dolent. which is the terminal pyramid of the l.ioct Blanc mass to the northeast. Mr. J. Coreelle says in Ia Nature that while the Swiss have only one foot on the Mant Blanc region, they are ac cused by many of claiming the entire mountain in their books and conversa tion. The people of Geneva, however, protest that tbey know better and make no such claim, and they retort that a great many Frenchmen are wholly ig norant of the fact that Mont Blanc per tains to their country. The Geneva l.ewHpapers are printing conversations with Frenchmen who speak of Mont Blanc as a Swiss mountain. Tbey also quote from the dictionary of the French academy of 1835. which says: "The glacier of Mont Blanc I the most re markable In SwIUerland." Victor Hugo also In his "Legende dea Siecles" gives to the Swiss all the Alps from Pelvonx in the west to the Ortler range in the east, thus including Mont Blane In the Swiss possessions. Madame Micbelet has committed the same blun der. French guide books are also quot ed as saying only a few years ago that "every Journey in Switzerland should laclode Lake Oeneva, Mont Blaac, and the OberUwd." While so many of the French gener ously give the mountain to Switzerland, the Italians err equay by calming the mountain for themselves. A relief map for schools shown in the national expo sition at Turin in 1898 Ipdicates the site of the Jaassen Observatory on the top of the mountain as Italian territory. The inhabitants of the valley of Aosta stoutly assert that most of the moun tain is a part of Italy. They say that Mont Blanc was In the Department of Dolre, and in spite of the treaties of recent yean they still harbor the delu sion that the great mountain pertains to them. They declare this ia all their Journals printed In the French lan guage. The principal Journal bears the name of Mont Blanc and ia printed in Aosta.

Cornhill Magazine: The American Inra.-ion has n-a:hed us through Lady Farringford; and here I must be under stood as indicating the wife of the present peer. The dear old dowager remains unshaken in the convictions of her youth. To her, Americans are a set of people who talk through their nofps, dine with thlr "helps," and drape the legs of their pianos; nor would either argument or eloquence move her from that sure anchorage. But. In spite of theee prepossessions, her son, the present Lord Farringford, having partly ruined himself at New market and completed the process at Monte Carlo, has repaired hie ahatured fortunes by marrying Miss Van Oof of New York, whose father made his mil lions by the famous "corner" In can-ras-backed ducks. And the new Lady Farringford, being young, pretty, rich, and outspoken has had a deserved suc cess In, London. Her intimacy In the highest quarters, reported In the soci ety Journals of New York, provoked from a friend of her youth the sarcas tic exclamation, "What! Sally Van Oof sporting In the lap of royalty? You bet your last biscuit she'll roll off. But the prophecy Is not yet fulfilled. Lost His Sausage Appetite. From the Philadelphia Record: "Another new waiter has come and gone," said the veteran of the 15-cent restaurant as he deposited a bnef stew In front of his favorite customer. "What was the matter with him?" asked the favorite customer. "Well, It wasn't exactly his fault," explained the veteran. "You see, the second day he was here a customer comes In and asks for a brace of frank furters. 'Sausage Is all out.' says the new waiter, 'bot if yon wait awhile I think I can get yon some.' He was so eager to be obliging that be was going to send across the street for 'em. Well, Ir, as he went through the door into the kitchen he happened to tread on the dogs taiL The dog set up a howl and the customer yells: 'Hey, there! Never mind that sausage. I guess I don't want it!" Then he puta on bis hat and goes out "The boas saw the whole thing and that night the new waiter was paid off, and quit Pretty tough, wasn't it?" Hltrata of Soda la Herada.

Manila Paper Eecounts His Varied Career in the Orient Copies of the Manila Times received by the Victoria give reports of the kill ing of the natives in Samar by Major L. W. T. Waller of the United States marine corps, now on trial before a courtmartial at Manila, and tell of his strange career in the Orient After re counting the executions, as have been cabled, the Manila Times says: "Major Waller was before a court of inquiry upon a previous occasion, while stationed at Cavitc, about a year ago. He was accused of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, but was ex onerated. When be went to Samar, in command of the marine corps, he was bent on making a record. "He was of the opinion that all that was necessary was to form a chain of posts across the Islands and drive and bag the insurrectos like rabbits. His plan was a failure, and 20 men lost their lives, while others came out of a nightmare experience In hospital with marks that they will bear to their dying day. It was his failure that irritated blm, and caused him to resort to such drastic measures. "Major Waller's career In the marine corps has been a picturesque blending of 'Dr. Jekyl snd Mr. Hyde,' " says the Manila paper. "In nls varying moods, he has been at times a Prince Bounti ful to his brother officers and others. At other times bis soldiers, subalterns, and even fellow citizens, feared to ap proach him on legitimate business. He exemplified both sides of his nature In the China campaign two years ago. His undaunted courage and devil-may-care manner made him popular with certain of the soldiers, hut others told dark tales. "Among other things, It was said that on the advance from Tong Ku to Tien Tain, where an American and a Russian battalion were enfiladed, Major Waller gave orders to abandon two wounded men, and had It not been for the nerve of a little medical officer and a lieuten ant who stautty protested they would never leave the field as long as a wounded man remained behind, that order would have been obeyed. This matter was hushed up, but those who witnessed it allowed it to be inferred that, had not the order been counter manded, a tragedy such as seldom oc curs la the American service would kare transpired."

Then, produc ing pome cards, he began throwing them clumsily and offering to bet that no one could pick out the "joker." The farm buyer made several wagors and won easily, and then found H easy io persuade the farmer to try his lurk. The manipulator of the cards suddenly grew skillful, ar.d very soon the pro ceeds of Farmer Nearn's last milk check, about 50, was in the drover's pocket. With the loss of his money came the realization that he had been victimized. "I've got some more money In the house," said Nearn, "and I'll get it and try my luck aRain. That dod-gasted Joker can't fool me alius." He made a quick trip to the house, nnd on his return pulled out, not a "roll." but a revolver, which he leveled rt the bunko men snd told them to throw up their hands. They saw determination In the old man's eye, and tip went their hands. His first care was to relieve them of their revolvers. This done, he said: "Now, hand over my money snd all the other cash you've got about your measly carcasses." They handed It over. Then he told them to "git" and they "got." f "Doing bunko men pays a durned eight better and Is a heap more exeltin' than farmln'," he remarked to his neighbors. Patriotic Gardening. Eben E. Rexford In Lipplneott's Magazine: During the last few years a decided change has taken place In an phase of American gardening. The at tention of the home gardeners has been called to the beauty and other good qualities of our native plants, and it Is becoming quite common among those who are setting out scbrubs and hardy plants to give the preference to those of American growth. This Is as it should be. Our national pride ought to Influence us to choose native plants Instead of fon)gn ones whenever equal ly desirable and meritorious specimens can be found at home. That we have many plants quite as desirable aa for eign ones comparatively few Ameri can understand. They have seen the discrimination which has existed so long in favor of imported plants snd lias practically crowded out our native species, and quite naturally tbey have come to the conclusion that this dis crimination must be based on the su periority of the foreign kinds. But such Is really not the case. Jsggles These collecting fads are all expensive aren't they?

Remarkable Engineering Feats on Roads iu Russia and Peru. London Globe: As 4he iron track In bound to force its way into the utmost ornrr8 of the world, it is not surpris ing that some lilies of railway exist which are striking evidence of a singu larly bold conception carried out in the face of obstacles which seemed al most insurmountable. Sometimes the route of the future lines lies across a ilc&ert; then the great law of the "compensation of nature" seem? to make itself felt, for to balance the sav ing of time and money due to the fact that long tunnels will have to be cut through hills or mountains the ong! neers are confronted by the total ab sence of three essential elements of construction, namely, wood, iron, and water, which have to be transported along the newly laid line as It stretches IU slow length across the desert. Rus sia's Transcasplan railway, now known a9 the Central Asian railway, was hull? under these conditions; thous ands of logs of timber were needed, and the region traversed canot boast of a single tree for more than 700 miles. This timber was required for building the long bridge, two miles in length, over the river Amu-Darya. This bridge was always the weak point in that highly important railway, and It has been replaced recently by a stone bridge. Between Mcry snd Cbarjul the line had to be carried over shifting sands 64 feet deep. Wben the work Is being carried out in such regions the ttsins become a little town on wheels. 1'hey are com pocd of two-storied wag ons, which contain sleeping acommo datlon, butchers' stalls, canteens, gro cers' stores and forges. As the Trans siberian railway grew In length It was resolved by the authorities that the workmen should have their own ' church car." A wagon was fitted up acordingly as a church, with a little peal of bells in the alcove above the entrance. The romance of mountain railways by no means ends with their construc tion, and traveling upon railways at a very high altitude Is not a thing to be desired. The Peruvian line run ning from Callao to Oroya has a two fold claim to distinction: It Is built at probably the greatest altitude of any existing railway, neamlr, 1&.60C feet above sea level, and It affords travel ers certainly the most unpleasant "ex perience de voyage" that can be Imag ined, As the result of traveling at such an altitude, the passengers begin by feeling great oppression, accompan ied by pains In the head and limbs; these sre quickly followed by bleeding from the nose snd month, and then by momentary blindness. It la gratifying to know that there Is a certain variety In the effects produced npon passengers at this point Thus, while some per sons are seised with giddiness, others entertain strange hallucinations, and others faint away; tha last class be come so weak that any undue exertion on their part often proves fatal. But this la not all that one has to nndergo on the Callao and Oroya line. Ia doe coarse the skis becomes Irritable and sores break out, while Us Una swell and than crack.

The ino starts from the quay Bide, and the traveler can pass from the boat into the train. Unfortunately the boat can not be brought completely alongside the quay. Disdaining the usual gangway, Peruvian ingenuity hit upon a very lovel idea. Two large uprights, with Ftrong cross-bar, were erected on the quay, and from the crons-bar hangs an ordinary trapeze. The passenger wish ing to land has to selzs the bar of this traneze; a few (sailors surround him, and. wben he gives the word, they unite in hurling ytrn into space over the ship's side. One such "send-off" Is finite enough, tor with ono swing the traveler cornea to land In the out stretched arms of the railway porters. , It is only right to add that both the G&ilors and the porters evince an amount of energy, delight, and dexter ity quite equal to the nervousness of their victims. Getting Even With Bill. Washington Star: "So you sent Bill Smlggins to congress." "We did," answered the keeper of the poiuofflce and general store. "I guess 1 did as much as anyone to get bin elected." "Bill Is a powerful talker. But I didn't know that you were any partic ular friend of his." "No. We bad a difference long years ago; and I always said I was gola' to get even. Bill prides himself on his speech makln', and nothln' makes him so unhappy aa to have aomthlng doln and him not In it I've been reliably informed that wben a man makes his debut In congress the people that have been there for some time previous look down on him kind of supercilious and make him sit quiet and listen. And that'll Jest about kill Bill!", On the Stag. "They are at my heels!" shouted the stage hero aa he rushed on from the wings and struck a beautiful attitude in the center of the spotlight "I must fly at once!" be continued, drawing the lovely heroine to his bosom In a fare well embrace. Behind the scenes could be heard tha hoarse shouting of his angry pursuers, while the hoof-beau of their horses clattered along the Invisible highway, growing louder and louder with omin ous visor. And for one whole act he bade that girl farewell, wnile the horsemen con tinued to approach, and the audience sat In a state of nervous collapse until he existed r. u. e., Just as the loading enemy daahed on to the scene.
