ALARIC’S TREASURE. Reason to Believe it May Soon Be Found in Southern Italy. One of the popular stories found In every school history but only half be lieved, if believed at all, Is the ac count of the burial of Alaric the VUi Ooth. As the story goes, his resting place Is In the bed of the River ousen tlnus, now the Busento, In southern Italy, where an Immense treasure was burled with him, but the exact place of Interment was unknown, and through the fourteen centuries that have since elapsed, no one has ever taken any steps to find either his bones or the treasure. Not long ago, however, Professor Ve gas, a German sculptor and a protege of the Emperor William's, while en gaged in the study of ancient art In Rome, accidentally came across a manuscript of the fifth century, by the ■well-known historian Jordanes, in in which this information Is given. So definite Is the description of the site, that Vegas and a body of scien tific men have obtained permission of the Italian minister of public works to Institute a search for this long hid den grave. By the terms of the contract the government is to retain possession of all the coins and precious stones that may be exhumed, and also of two tblrds of the works of art, one-third going to the finders. The explorers are confident that this one-third will be an ample compensation for their la bor. All this serves to call up that long dead epoch and the picturesque figure of Alaric, who with his blue-eyed, golden-haired northerners, swept down over southern Europe and established a sovereignty destined to last three hundred years or more. They were a Teutonic people, these Vlsl-Goths, splendid, large limbed, stalwart men, and Alaric himself Is pictured as one of the handsomest and most striking fig ures among his nation. In the popular mind Alaric exists as a pagan conqueror and a monster of cruelty, but this notion does not seem •to be supported by facts. He was no snore Inhuman than the Romans them selves, with whom he waged war. Nor was he a pagan, though a barbarian. Many of the Goths had been converted Ho Christianity, and Alaric was one of them. According to the best lights of toistory, he was both an astute and a heroic leader of men. It was In A, D. 1396. when Alaric was only a little more than twenty years of age, that he set out upon his con quests. He had been scorned and In sulted by the Romans, and his war was one of vengeance, aa well as of con quest and pillage. With an army of two hundred thousand warriors he overran Greece, taking enormous spoils from the hoarded- wealth of the rich cities of Athens, Sparta and Corinth. Several years were spent In cam paigns against the Eastern Empire, and finally, In 1403, he turned his vic torious arms against Italy and the west. The weak Emperor Honorlus tried to buy him off by promises of rich bribes, hut Alaric could not be In duced to forego his vengeance. At last he and his long-haired, stal wart warriors sat down before Rome, then a city of more than a million In habitants, enriched by the tribute of the world for a thousand years, and the spoils of more than three hundred tri umphs. When the Romans endeavored to treat with him, they found his de mands so extravagant that they threat ened a deaperate resistance, to which the conqueror made the well-known re ply: “The closer hay is pressed, the easier It is mown." Finally Alaric was Induced to retire by the promised payment of five thou sand pounds of gold, thirty thousand of silver, four thousand silken robes, and two thousand pieces of scarlet cloth. But two years later, through the fool ish conduct of Honorlus, the Vlsl-Goth king appeared again before the walls of Rome. This time be took and sacked the city. There were six days of carnage and plunder, and laden with an Incalculable amount of booty, Alaric Withdrew Into southern Italy. That same year, while engaged In the siege of Coscntla (Cosenza), the conqueror was seized with a disease that proved fatal after a short dura tion. He was only In his thirty-fifth year. The victorious Goths were seized with consternation. Alaric bad been their bond of union and their pledge of success, and they had given him undevlatlng devotion. His death would oblige them to leave Italy, but they determined to give their king a sepul cher suited to his rank and expressive of their love—a sepulcher that could not be desecrated or plundered by the enemies in whoso laud they were forced to leave it. It was a grand and terrible concep tion. The River Busentlnus was di verted from its course, and in Its dry channel a great pit was dug. In which was built a tomb of massive stone. There, clothed in golden armor, with his jeweled crown upon his head, a scepter and a sword beside him, they laid their beloved leader down to rest, and around him, with unsparing hands, they placed the costly spoils of the richest city In the world. In order that the secret of his burial place might never be revealed, the host of slaves that had been employed to do the work were chained In the river’s channel, and as the waters were allowed to flow back Into their natural course, all traces and knowl edge of their king’s sepulcher were for ever obliterated. The lately discovered manuscript In dicates that the tomb was near the junction of the Rivers Crall and Bu sento. Near the place burled two hundred feet in the earth, have been found the ruins of the City of Con stantta, which the Goths pillaged and destroyed at the time of the strange entombment of their king. No one can foretell the amount of treasure or the revelation of ancient art that may he opened to the world if the tomb of Alaric the Vlsl-Goth be discovered and the scientific world waits with interest the result of the search. "BEEF AND” GIRL A RINGER. Waited on Table at a Formal Dinner and Created a Sensation. From the Detroit Free Press: When Mrs. Smith decided to give a tea party she made up her mind that it should ibe the event of the season. With that in view she started elaborate prepara tions, promising Mary, her cook, an extra week's wages if she would do her best to make the party a success. Finding that she would need a girl to help serve the tea, she asked Mary If she knew of anyone that she could get. "Sure, mum,” answered Mary. "There’s me sister, what’s used to wait in’ an’ who'll be glad to get the chance, for she’s a poor gurl Just out of a Jolt." As Mary herself was a Jewel, Mrs. Smith did not question her further, and Mary received orders to have her sis ter on baud. Mary's sister reported for duty, and Mrs. Smith gave her minute Instructions how she should act, wishing to give the guests the im pression that she was a regular mem ber of the household. Things went on swimmingly until Mary's sister, seeing that one of the guests was out of lea. came up and wanted to know If the lady would have •'anlther." The guest smilingly answered that she would, whereupon Mary's sister, snatching up ihe cup, bawled acroea the room in the most approved cheap-restaurant code: ‘•Draw one!” A »afa Kola.

A LAVENDER DINNER. A Suggestion for sn Kvenlng Dlnue 1'srljr for Young People. Suggestions for home entertainment may possibly be obtained from a din ner for young people given In the west recently. The table was elaborately decorated In pink and lavender, and dainty china, cut glass and silver were used in effective combination. In the center of the white damask cloth was placed a mirror lake, which was outlined In smllax and roses, to which were attached lavender and pink rib bons radiating to the places of the guests. To these ribbons were fast ened numbers. In addition to the pink roses, and two "lucky” numbers drew dainty prises—a stiver hat brim brush for the man, and a silver neck buckle for the girl. At either end of the table were sliver candelabra tied with lav ender ribbons, and filled with pink can dles, hooded with dainty pink shades. Dinner cards ornamented with the creat of the hostess done in gilt were placed at each plate. When the company were at the table the door bell rang and telegrams were brought In addressed to the several guests. When the yellow envelopes were opened they were found to con tain tingle words and blank telegraph ■ lips. Imter In the evening the gueets were requested to writ# a telegram, using the letters of the Inclosed word In regular order as Initial letters of the words forming the Imaginary mes sages I “rises were given for the best telegrams thus constructed.

LAMPS OP ALL ACES. Grtutd Huah Met In * Hold In » Wooden Block. Tlhe story of lamps from Herodotus lown to 1830 Is not one of develop ment, says Light and Lightmaking. In principle and form they remain the same, whether as the tin cylindrical or boat-shaped cups on candlestick pedestals and the round tin cups with hemispherical lids, or the lldless cups resting on wooden stands such as were recently rescued by the author from the garret rubbish of old Bucks coun ty. And before Herodotus, as we fol low the kimip back Into the tombs of the old world, we find the boat-shaped form of earthenware preceding the boat shaped form of iron, and possibly even that of bronze. The chalk cup lamp found by Canon Greenwell In the neolithic flint mines at Grimes Graves, England, perhaps the oldest wick-floatlng lamp In the world. Is not essentially different from the oyster shell filled with lard and provided with wicks that may lie found among Vir ginia negroes today. The Egyptian, Grecian, Phoenician and Roman lamps, as they have been found in the tombs and as we see them In the museums, are not unlike the lard lamps that were most In use early In the nineteenth century. Then crude grease gave way to sperm oil and lard oil, with especial adaptations of the lumps that made them more convenient and improved the light; and burning fluids that were convenient and dean and gave a bril liant light, but were dangerous; and kerosene, with other Improvements In the lamiMi and refinements In the oil that enabled It to give the most perfect artificial light yet found, and to keep up the flgbt for quality with gas and electricity- all these having come In witnin the lifetime of men still among us. Besides the old lamps our ances tors had candles, molded wh<» the price of tin, the material for the molds, did not forbid tho luxury, and before them tallow dips; a suspended wick was dipped Into a pot of hot tallow, on a cold day, and the operation was re peated till layer after layer of grease hardened, and the oanule was thick enough. These candles were, however, troublesome In hot weather, on account of their propensity to yield to the tem perature and fall over, "Who shall say, however, that candle dipping is older than molding, when we know • * • that they molded candles In County Galway, Ireland, in late years by punching holes In peat and pouring In tallow on the down-hting wlek of twisted flax fibre?" The Irish had, too, as had the negroes, tho rush light, a greased rush set In a hole In a wooden block serving as a candlestick; or rushes Joined In a triple wist which flies apart when lighted, Increasing the blaze. BUYING VOTES WITH PEANUTS New 8<*liool M«‘tlio«fx la Mllwaake Develop Kujcully Children. An experiment has lately been trteo m one of the public schools of Mil waukee and by its opponents pro nounced a failure, says Harper’s Ba zar. The aim of its originate.', Mr. R. J. O’Hanlon, was Hits—to Introduce into the school life of the child a form of training which would equip him for duties of citizenship on bis entrance into the w'orld of grown-up men and women. A form of government was therefore introduced into the school, which was modeled upon that exist ing in the city of Milwaukee itself. A mayor was appointed, aldermen were elected, a constitution adopted. There were Judges, policemen, comptrollers and no end of other officers. The best principles of the best governed were laid down and the boys and girls— there was no distinction of sex—were set about governing themselves. But the amount of chaos and corruption that ensued brought protests from the parents and even the scholars them selves. Studies were neglected and bribes given and taken. Instead of a lesson of self-government being ac quired, all the evils of the most cor rupt form of municipal government were practiced. Mr. O’Hanlon, not dis couraged, says that only the prejudices of a community were against him; that, given a longer time, his system would have proved Itself. “It Is the height of absurdity,** he says, “to make the school an autocracy and to sub stitute an external conscience for the right of self-control." But, with votes bought and sold for peanuts and pen nies. the parents cried halt—time enough to learn how had municipal government might be when necessity for action confronted him! Still, It would have been Interesting to know whether Mr O'Hanlon was right and whether a longer trial would have proved a real success. demonstrating beyond question that, even among chil dren. the principle of self-government has In It all the elements for bring Ing about the eradication of those evils which at first seem always to he eit gendered by it.

VICTORIA KNOWS THE HISTORY OF EVERY GEM. Nothing That Haa Belonged to King* and Uueena la fihe Ignorant Of—Other Crowned El porta—Ono of the Peculiar Prerogative! of Royalty. When the Queen gratifies a London dealer in precious stones by a com mand to attend at Windsor or Osborne lie finds that he has to do with a Bhrewd, Intelligent buyer. She has In her possession a wonderful collection of precious stones, among which Is a marvelous green diamond of great value which haH never been set. Her majesty has at her fingers' end the history of every famous stone which belongs to European royalty. Four beautiful and unrivaled sapphires, equal In size and luster to the one that glows In the crown of England, are the property of the Queen of Saxony. The Comtesse de Paris, too, possesses a magnificent purure of sapphires, cor onet, necklace, bracelets, brooch and earrings. The stones are large and set with exquisite diamonds. The fin est pearl necklace In the world be longs to the Countess Henckel, and Is valued at more than 50,000 pounds. It Is eoni[K>sed of three famous necklaces, each of great value In Itself. One, known as the necklace of the Virgin of Atokha, was bought by the Countess from a Spanish grandee for 12,000 pounds. Another was once owned by Marie Sophie, ex-Queen of Naples, and the third was the Empress Eugenie's state necklace, which was sold for 20,000 pounds. The Queen of Italy also owns a superb necklace, consisting of several rows of pearls, which are s;> costly and so rare that her maids are obliged altvays to wear a part of the collection to aid her majesty in keep ing the beautiful gems, pure, lustrous and healthy by constant contact with warm flesh. King Humbert buys the pearls for bis wife, presenting her with one row each year, and he, like Queen Victoria, is an expert In Jewels. These pearls are excelled only by those once in the possession of Queen Mary of Hanover, now the property of her daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cum berland, which form a string more than six feet long. Every one of these love ly beads is an absolute match In shape und color. The late Empress of Aus tria possessed the best collection of black pearls In existence, as well as the biggest emerald, and a necklace of the same stones which is unrivaled. These emeralds are crown property, an are the pearls of Queen Margherita. The Empress of Russia wears, second to her royal giandmother, the largest diamond, and has also a collection of rubles of surpassing splendor, though the richest and most beautiful aggre gation of precious stones Is owned by the Russian church. All the Queens of Europe do not own Jewels to half the value of those set in the statues, tresses altars and vestments at the Cathedrals of Moscow and St. Peters burg. The favorite wives of the Shah of Persia and the Sultan wear tur quoises the like of which no Western Queen can boast. The Duchess of West minster wears the largest and most perfect turquoise (being flawless) owned by any private person, and the Duchess of Sutherland Is the happy possessor of the only complete neck lace of hlack pearls. VALUABLE JEWELS. Worn In Carious Ways by Several Pecu liar People. Jewels set in teeth are occasionally heard of, but gold and precious stones set in the human body is a fad not extensively popular. A gentleman re siding in Bombay wears a beautiful emerald, which, set in a rim of gold, is stitched by means of gold wire to the breast of the owner. Thus securely fastened, the green gem has rested un der his shirt front for ten years. He considers it his lucky stone. Worn by a certain barrister Is a ring that will not come off. It is a plain gold band of considerable thickness, a rivet of the previous metal piercing the ring and passing through the bone of the finger. Is filed down on the opposite side. Nothing save amputation of the member would release him of the circlet. For sentimental reasons he wishes it to be his life-long and in separable companion. Having a de cayed part of his instep cut away, a wealthy Invalid has had the crevice filled with gold. To appear ornamen tal the metal is shaped like a star, the center boasting a large diamond and a cluster of small rubles. Stitched to the skin of his waist is the gold chain belt sported by another extravagant being. The belt Is two Inches broad and eighteen stitches are necessary to secure It. In front a trio of fine chains dangle to the knees of ths wearer, a ho la »o proud of hla decoration that he occasionally disrobes to reveal the permanent ornament to favored friends.

When planted In new soil the banana does not require any plowing, but It does when the lands have been much used and have, of course, lost their natural state of porosity, says the States’ Duty. When once the soil is ready, holes are made one yard in diameter, two or three yards distant from one another, and about one-half a yard deep. In rich lands and new lands no fertilizer is required, but oth erwise a basketful of some kind 1b use ful; a sprout is then planted, which In three months' time will grow to eight and ten feet high, and, nine months or a year after planting, according to the variety, will yield fruit in the form of n bunch, which will count as many Sometimes us 200 bananas. In the first two years the weeds have to be re moved, but afterward the shade will prevent their growth. In moat places Do water is required, but half a dozen Irrigations a year will he enough in the driest lands. Once the plantation is In full growth and producing condi tion, It does not require more attention than (he ( leaning of the plants of their dry leaves and the keeping of all the detritus from the plants well gathered round the trunk to fertilize It, allowing plenty of space for the new sprouts to come out. Sometimes these come in such profusion that the expert laborer h«s to extirpate them and only nllow a certain number to grow up. When the plantation Is In full growth and production, the collecting of the fruit Is constant, and every week the planta tion can he gone through to collect the ripe bunches.

A mongrel terrier, extensively de voted to his mistress, was very jealous of her love for the kitten. Often when the latter had been caressed by the lady the former would go off and scratch a hole in the garden, and theu, fetching the kitten, would bury It therein. To prevent the kitten forc ing its way out, the terrier would post himself upon the grave, and so, un happily for hig purpose, would guide to the speedy rescue of the latter by itg friends. Once he chose a pail of soot for the death tomb. At other times the dog and the kitten were good friends and playmates. Another dog, this time a spaniel, resentful of the im portation of a tortoise, which her mas ter had bought for his children and given the range of the lawn, deter mined to put her rival to death by the same method. Very shortly after Its coming, both the dog and the tortoise could nowhere be found. Presently the dog returned with her paws cover ed with earth; not so the tortoise. Sus picious of the spaniel, her master coax ed her to come and look for it, when she guiltily drew off to the garden and stopped before a small mound of earth, which, when removed with a stick, re vealed the tortoise. He who hides can find. Perhaps I may add a story of a Skye. He, too, belonged to the owner of the terrier, the culprit of the first story. The Skye's favorite place was, as it should be. at his mistress' feet. He was generally quite well behaved, but would have lost his character one day had he been without excuse. The Skye was running in front of his mis tress and her husband and suddenly surprised them by flying at a poor girl and holding her prisoner. When they came to her rescue they found her to be a child to whom had been given a pair of the Skye’s mistress' shoes. To secure what he deemed to be a thief of his mistress' property, and this the shoes that hud so tenderly rubbed him, was clearly his duty, and he did It.— lAindun Spectator. The Male of telllma.

There I stood—the occasion was too exciting to sit—and for an hour watched the alluring panorama. The place was a blaze of color. The uniform*!, the gar ments of the Indian princes, the flags, the gay decorations, the dreoses of the women—captivated the senses. And all the while a hand played joyously and voices rippled in laughter and talk, and the roar of the multitude outside drummed through all. But It was the eye that captained the senses that day. Never has my vision been so surfeited; and as the place Ailed and the bodyguard ranged them selves on either side of the throne I felt that the appearance of her majesty must form a kind of antl-cllnnx, for the tale was told, the eye could hold no more. Whatever of pride, of birth and splendor, of show and richness the world could produce was there. The ripest stage management could do no more.

Dorothy Drew, Gladstones famous grandchild, whoee loving companion ship added ho much to the happiness of his later years, is the subject of a very Interesting sketch In The Young Woman. Wo learn from It that before her 4th year her political views had become decidedly radical; to her mind the house of lords was a most repre hensible Institution, and the house of commons was the mainstay of the na tion. When the house of lords was spoken of in her presence as the “up per house," she would retort: "You mean the house of commons!” She vlsted the latter during her 3d year, and for a time thought herself in church. The frequent rising and sit ting of the members soon undeceived her, however, ami from these move ments and the oratorical gesticulations of the speakers, she fancied herself In a gymnasium an impression derived from a previous visit to such a place. For some time after this the commons was “the place where granddad goe» to do his ‘nasties,'’ or. on occasions, “the place where granddad goes to d» his lessons.” Har visit to Queen Victoria was a momentous episode in her young life, and from the article above mentioned we quote the narrative of her delight ful experiences: “Dorothy relates how she went down the very long corridor to put on her new white frock and he*r silk gloves, and how a grand servant all dressed In red came to say that the queen was waiting. ‘The Indian man whom the queen likes very much” was at the door, and the next moment Dorothy stood before the great queen whom her grandpapa had served for sixty years. But Dorothy thought nothing of the vaatnesa of the empire, or of the length of the reign which all the world waa celebrating. It was nothing to her that the kindly gray-haired lady before her was mlatresB of one-quarter of the whole humun race, To Dorothy she was Just another woman like grand mamma, with a white cap on her head; and Dorothy courtesied and kissed her and told her her name was “Dorsie.’' that she called Mr Gladstone "grand papa," that they all had pet names at the castle, and so on and so on; and many Interesting pet names were re vealed on both sides. "The queen put on her glasses and asked me to go to the other side of the room, so that sho could see me better," Dorothy ex plains. "ami then she took a little Jewel-case and said, ’This Is for you.' I opened It and saw a darling little brooch, with a diamond V and a dia mond R and a turquoise I, and a little crown at the top made of red enamel. I courtesied and kissed her hand and said, ‘Thank you very much.’ She looked very nice and kind, and I liked her very much.’ Then the queen kissed the little debutante ugaln, and Doro thy and her mother returned to town.” Kipling, who is numbered among the celebrities who have sought Dorothy’s acquaintance, tells an amusing story of their meeting. They had been in the grounds surrounding 11* warden for «>me time together, when Dorothy’s mother appeared, saying; "Now, Dorothy, 1 hope you have nut be«n wearying Mr. Kipling."
