I.lka Mrs. Langtry II* Has Hail Matri

I’rniwlaant Sportsman Whose llorwi

HINCE Esterhazy
dn (lalanthu, who,
It la announc >d,
will soon lead Mrs.
Langtry to the al
tar, ’ la a noted
character in Km
ope, although not
well known in
America. He l»
prominent In Aus
tria and Is very
favorably known at the court of bin
totintry. Tho Jeratty Lily la prover
bial for her partiality to sporting men,
and It will lit! no surprise, therefore,
to suy that the prince la one of the
foremost horsemen of Europe. Ilia
racing stock Is well known on the
tracks of the continent, and his Income
Is suflli’iently large to make the heat
bloods of I’arls Jealous. Prince Paul,
for that is his Christian name, la de
scended, by an odd dispensation of
fate, from the earls of Jersey. Ills
mother wus a daughter of the fifth earl
of the Island of which Mrs. Langtry
has been Justly called the Illy. Both
parties to the proposed match have
rot been without experience In the
way of matrimony. Mrs. Langtry's his
tory and adventures In that respect are
very well known. It Is different, how
ever, with Prince Paul. It Is not
known, In America, at least, that he
has been twice married. Both of his
wives are dead. The second was a prin
cess of Croy, who passed away lu 1889.
Prince Paul's son by his (lrst wife Is
now fin officer in (he Austrian army.
Mrs. Langtry's prospective husband is
M years old but it Is said that he does
not look or fee) his age by twenty
years. His marriage, like that of his
namesake In the comic opera may pro
voke no end of comment in continental
journals, but, with his coveted prize
won, It Is highly probable that this
veritable Prince Paul will care little
what the "confounded Journals’’ say
about him. Mrs. Langtry's recent di
vorce leaves her free to wed.
Whi«tl«r ami Irving.
Many of the pictures of Whistler, the
artist, are vague, both In treatment
and subject. The public may be par
doned for not understanding some of
these pictures after hearing the fol
lowing amusing anecdote of the paint
er: One night Whistler dropped Into
Sir Henry Irving's rooms to dinner.
Other guests were present, but Whist
ler alone was silent. Two of his land
scapes adorned the walls, and appar
ertly he wanted no further entertain
ment. Every few minutes he would

"What's the matter?" Inquired Ir
ving, calmly walking up to the pic
"Matter," thundered Whistler. "Why,
the matter Is that these pictures have
been hung upside down, and you have
never notices! It. I suppose they have
been like this for months?”
"I suppose they have." replied Ir
ving. "But I think I might be excused,
since It has taken you—the man who
painted them over an hour to dis
cover that they are upside down.”

"You see (hat I haven't a particle of
rheumatism," said the man with a
florid face and a voice that was Intend
ed by nature for campaign purposes,
j says the Detroit Free Press. "I feel
like a 2-year-old. Never have an ache
or pain. Don't pay a particle of alien
lion to east winds, rains or changes In
the temperature. Kat three meals a
day and sleep like a top. A year ago
I went around smelling like a bottle of
home liniment. One time I'd he on
criltehes. Then I'd have an arm drawn
all oul of shape or a shoulder that waa
! of no earthly use. The last spell I had
was with my hack, and I was about
ready to throw up the sponge. What
, did 1 do for It? Everything under the
: sun. I had horse chestnuts In every

j petrified. 1 ate lemons until I was an
Hour aa I looked. I took more klnda
of medicine than you can find In any
one drug store. I was In a boiled state
for six months from hot baths. I was
massaged Into a pulp. I traveled 300
miles to have the disease charmed away
and had It worse coming hack than I
did going. One day I met a little old
man that must have been 100. lie was
as spry as a kitten, yet assured me that
from the time he was 50 to 70 there was
nothing of him but rheumatism. Even
his hair ached, lie advised me to steal
a dlshrag and rub myself thoroughly
with It every morning There was no
virtue In the treatment unless I stole
the rag. I would have robbed a hank
to get relief. One afternoon I slipped
through the back door of a house Into
the kitchen, grabbed a dlshrag and
started to limp away. A 200 pound
hired girl let out a Tipperary screech
and took after me with a mop stick. By
the time she had clouted me once or
twice I wan running like a professional
and at the end of half a block I was out
of reach of her weapon. I've never had
a twinge since. I don't know whether
the hired girl, the pounding, the run
ning or the dlshrag cured me. I'm
rather disposed to think that the rheu
matism was scared out of me,"

Kills Henry‘Roberts, the new United
States ti easurer, began life au a com
positor in the office of a ci/untry news
paper. The various steps which he
took upward from the "devilshlp" tc
Uncle Sam's counting room were made
wholly by his own personal effort. In
his early youth he entered a printing
office and while learning his trade not
only supported himself but secured a
thorough education. He fitted for col
lege and was graduated with the sec
ond highest honors in the class of 185b
at Yale. In 1851 he became editor and
part owner of the Utica Herald and
for thirty-five years controlled the
policy of that paper, having in the
meantime become the sole proprietor.
During all this time he had been
more or less active in politics. He
served as delegate to the Republican
national conventions In 1864, 1868 and
1876. In 1866 he was elected repre
sentative to the state legislature. Four
years later he was elected congress
man and served two terms. In 1889
he was appointed by Harrison as as
sistant United States treasurer at New
York and during the subsequent four
years he directed the subtreasury at
that city. Mr. Roberts has found time
to write several books. He has been
honored by Yale and Hamilton, both
of which institutions have conferred
upon hint honorary degrees.

A remarkable engineering feat was
recently performed In California In i
providing a bulwark for a great
dam being built to Impouud water
(or Man Francisco. By a single
blast a section of a mountain was torn
off and burled Into a gorge below. Two
months were required in preparation
for the blast In tunnels rut Into the
mountain of rock great dorrs of black
powder were placed, while deposits of
giant powder were treated under the
mass to t*e moved The black powder
ignites slower than the granite pow
der. and the effort, when rlertrlrity
waa applied to both at once, was first
to lift up the mass and then pueh It
over the edge into the gorge. A mass

incut toned a a a
probable mu censor
to Ibe late Isham G,
Harris In the senate ,
of the United Males
Is one of the most
popular of Ten ties
scans, lie Is south
rrn to the core.
There is in u < h j
lomhust about the man, but he Is as
ionest as politicians get to be the/.e
lays, During all of his life he lias
itood up straight as a trivet for Item- -
XTary, He has never been a ba< k
illder. Kven when bis party's candl
late did not conform to his Ideas In
884, 1888 and 1892, he swallowed It iin
'omplalnliigly. He Is an Inimitable
itory teller. He loves fried ehieken
letter than a hound dog loves pot II- j
I nor. He drinks his whisky straight 1
tnd he pulls off his hat to every lady
hat he meets. He run play the fiddle,
te can ride a horse bareback, and he
an follow the hounds until the horn
ilows for breakfast the next morning.
He knows the difference between a
horoughbred and fetlock stock, and be
worships a blue eyed baby with a de
votion characteristic of the mountain
rtan. He ran talk, he ran sing, he
•an fiddle, and he can cut the pigeon's
wing. He is breezy and he Is bright.
By a peculiar accident Taylor was
•lected to the forty-sixth congress. He
was then to fame and fortune unknown
He beat Pettlbone, a carpet bagger from
Michigan, not by his own strength or
he strength of his party, but because
ils brother Alf took the stump for him.
n congress Taylor was a general fa
vorite. When he spoke the galleries
fstened. He got more notoriety be
muse of a speech made by Genera)
•tragg of Wisconsin one night when
lome pension bill that bad been fath
ered by Taylor was up for discussion
Ilob was clef'.’101 two year* later by
Pettlbone. Then he returned home
and wan nominated by the Democrats
for governor. Ilia opponent on the Re
publican ticket wax no other than hi*
dtHtlnguiahed brother Alf. It wa»
called the war of the rosea, and had the
contest occurred a half century ago It
would have been the most picturesque
event In American politics. Alf made
a great race, but waa defeated. Then
he went to congress and made a better
reputation there than his brother who
had preceded him had made It |* hi*
ambition now to be a prosperous farm
er In Hast Tennessee.
For fifteen year* It has been Hob'*
desire to go to tbe senate. One- ho was
elected senator. That was In IKK).
Hut before the result could be an
nounced a vote that he could not spare
waa changed and Hob retired to one of
the cloakrooms and spent the balance
of the day In tears. The successful
man waa Jackson. H< has had the
senatorial fever ever since that day.
It waa for this that he ran for governor
the Ural time. It was for this that lie
took the nomination for the same office
last year when he really did not want
It. As a word painter be has no equal
In Tcnrieas"'. Had he Isen contempo
raneous with William H. Haskell be
would have rivaled that prodigy of tra

VV'u Ting Kang, the Chlm.c mini -

the American capital to Tokyo a*
Chinese representative In Japan, Is «
gentleman of 'ducat Ion, culture ami
modern l<!"a*. He is perhaps the ablest
man that has ever represented the
Chinese government In the United
States. He speaks English freely, and
Is well Informed on current affairs and
the politics of the world The minister
Is an English barrister. He Is a grad
uate of Lincoln’s Inn, London, where
he lived for several years. When he
went to Hong Kong he practiced law
In the English courts there for five
years. Ills rally education was ac
quired In Uhlna, when he held several
high positions In the Chinese govern
ment. This Is his first mission abroad,
although he was In this country about
twenty years ago on a prlvute errand,
. He Is a courtly, affable Chinaman,
and represents the very best class of
his countrymen, He lias a wife and i
' if f
hau anything else that he ever did
vhile in the house. Bragg gave Bob
i cruel blow, and it took the Tenues

n the course of his remarks General

luty as a congressman requires that 1
ippose the passage of this act granting
i pension to this poor soldier who was
ihot to death with chronic diarrhea in
.861 and never found it out until 1881."
As a declaimer his friend Bryan is
lot a marker to him. While In con
tress Bob got the floor as often aa the
ipeaker would allow him. When he
'ouldn't make a speech to his fellow

As to the question of a lunar at
mosphere the eminent astronomers It
charge of the Paris observatory. M
Loewy and M. Pusieux, appear to hold
a somewhat different opinion from
that commonly entertained by scien
tists. Admitting that the determina
tion as to whether there is a very lit
tle or none at all la not really neces
sary, there are evidences, they con
clude. that it must be very rare—not
more than one nine-hundredth of the
density of our own, the reasons why
this must be so being as follows, name
ly: That when the moon detached itself
from the equatorial regions of the
earth, it must have taken with it as a
portion of its materials some of tha
material chemical elements of the
earth, or at least those lighter ones
that lay near the surface at the time,
It being probable, however, that our
