Croizctte, the celebrated actress of
the Co.'ncilie Francais and rival of Bern-
haedt's, has been havino- affairs prettv
inufli as she wills since the departure ol
the latter. She has a salary from tho
jrovernmeut of 25,mxj francs per an
num. It keeps her in fr'.oves, bottines,
and bonbons. She ha three very beau
tiful children, and, though she is mad
emoiselle, thev accompany her everv-
wliere, and are well cared for by their
respective fathers. One or them, a bo-,
is the acknowleged child of the Duke
d'Aumale, son of Louis Phillipne, and
is the exact image of his grandfather.
In Croizette' s more beautiful days sho
sat as a model for the hgure of "lruth,
now on exhibition in the Luxumburg,
and which represents a perfectly nude
woman with a lamp in her hand. It is
said that when this picture was com
pleted, the actress went to see it with a
number of friends, among them a rich
but very stupid young marquis, who.
after examing the paintings, inquired:
"Mademoiselle, why do you carry a
lamp?" To which Croizette naively,
mid to the horror of the artist, respond
ed: "Mon Dieu. monsieur, je cherehe
nies habits." (I am looking for my
cl.'thes.) Croizt-Ue is no longer beauti
ful. She looks like an exceedingly fat
Modjeska, if one can imagine such an
anomaly, and scarcely opens her large,
dark eyes in talking. She is very pop
ular, and gives elegant receptions week
ly at her residence. '
A 'Western Derivation for Ellzzard.
Thederivation of the word "blizzard'.'
is not generally known. We will eluci
date: When one of those superior crear
tures who inhabit Boston enters his
testhetio home on a cold night he re
moves his cultured muffler from his re
lined throat, and remarks, "The atmos
pheric exuberance is antagonistic to the
preservation of caloric in the physiolog
ical structure," which, translated,
rneans, "It blows hard." When a de
generated Chicago man returns home
at 3. a. m., from a chicken tight, after
having observed the fall of the mercury
and several other things in liquid form,
he explains the state of the atmosphero
to the angry partner of his joys as fol
lows: "M'dearsh. bl'sh'ard bl'zzard,"
after which he encounters a blizzard
from his indignant spouse.
A little English work, "Sleep, and
How to Obtain It," saj's that insomnia
is not so dangerous as is commonly sup
posed, for tho author knows an eminent
man of letters who has suffered front it
for many years without injury. When
a man begins to dream of his work ho
may know that he is under too great a
mental strain. The author's plan of
inducing sleep is to reckon up friends
and acquaintances whose names begin
with, a certain letter.
A tenant has been dancing all night

all night," wai the answer. "Neither
haveI." says the tenant; "and yet I
doji't make any fuus about it."

It is remarkable that tho working-

fled from the house in which their child
had died of diphtheria, and the health
authorities took the body away and
buried it, and could not find the child's
parents. Subsequently it was ascer
tained that Brand had a chi.d who died
a few davs before of diphtheria. Then
the second child contracted the disease
and died, and Mr. Brand was also
taken ill. Brand was too poor to bury
the child, and he thought it best to get
his wife out of the house.

newspaper writers dogged my heels;
and so I had a happv tr-ininir-ground.
in which, by constant practice, 1 attain

As the steamship Labrador was on her
way from Havre to .New lork, an im
migrant passenger named Jacob Ncick
Oerthy committed suicide by jumping
overboard in mid-ocean. The sailors
made every possible effort to rescue the
man, but the weather at the time Mas

Oerthy leii in his truhk two letters, one
of which was addressed to his sister,
and the other lo a girl who was his af
fiance!. These notes were couched in
rambling incoherent language, indica
ting tu.-it the writer was of unsound

The authorities of the postofllce la
Glasgow, Si-otiand, are about to make
arrangements for the permanent light
ing of the main departments of tho

system. Satisfactory experiments had
been made with that system for some
time in the sorting room and iu the tel

If alo9 a.u Lcljeycd to be present in
cordials, elixirs, Hquorn, i- beer, Hugo
Borntrager gives this rapid method o
testing the question: A portion of the
liquid is well shaken with twice its
Volume of benzine, anil the behavior of
the mixture with ammonia is observed.
If no red coloration is apparent, aloes
can only be pr -sent in very iusignilieant
quantity or not there at alL
With the view of approximately as
certaining how long after death phos
phorus can be detected in cases of poi
soning, Dr. L. Medicus killed a hon

The digestive organs were observed to
be quite luminous, and the presence of

Opium is harvested in this manner in

ecured in a bamboo tube. When the
i'uicu is dried in the sun and turns
ilack it is considered lit for market.
According to the experiments of M,
Grehant, air containing l-.' of its
volume of carb m dioxide proved fatal
to a dog which inhaled it for fifty niin
ntcs. With another dog of the same
size the fatal dose was l-2oO. A rabbit
resisted various proportions of mixtures
of air and carbou dioxide until tha lat
ter rose to 1-60 of the volume of air;
while a sparrow died with 1-500
A new method of producing light
from electricity has been patented in
England. Small balis of platinum or
irridium are arranged at the ends of
small platinum rods enclosed in pairs
in the center of a suitable globe, and a
rapid succession of sparks is passed bo
tween them, whereby they are raised to
incandescent heat. A disadvantage ;s
the noise attendant ou tho rapid sparks.
An easy method for showing whether
butter is adulterated with beef fat has
been submitted by Hager. He satu
rates a cotton wick with a suspected
sample, which is tirst incite-1. He then
lights the wick and permits it to burn
for about two minutes. At the end of
that time, when the wick is extinguish
ed, an odor like that given by a tallow
candle when its flame Ls blown out is
readily perceived if the butter is artificial.
