that they be classified according to those
characteristics of the subject which his
ingenuity cannot disguise, as height,
color of the eyes, length of the foot,
shape of the head, etc., thus separating
the vast collection into groups, any one
of which could be easily examined

Ldmund Yates says: "The American
Christmas is purely due to Charles Dick
ens. When he invented, or, rather, re
vived Christmas, the Americans took up
the matter warmly. The celebration
had long been made out in the States to
be the festival of the winter 6olstice and
a purely pagan affair. Dickens infused
new life into it, and the Americans have
taken Christmas at his estimate. Be
fore that they had only three festivals
the Fourth of July, New Year and
Thanksgiving. Christmas became the
fourth and is now very popular among
Americans, who delight in entertaining
any Briton who ma3 be among them."
The last census shows a rapid advance
ment in the growth of cotton and food
products. In 1870 the amount of cotton
produced was 4,352,317 bales; in 1880
more than 6,000,000 bales. In 1870 the
amount of corn raised was 760,940,594
bushels; in 1880, 1,751,449,435 bushels.
During the last decade our agricultural
products were increased nearly 100 per
cent. During the year from 1879 to
1880 our export trade largelv increased.
The cattle export rose from "$13,000,000
to $14,000,000; wheat from $167,698,000
to $190,546,000; flour from $35,000,000
to $45,000,1)00; cotton from $209,852,000
to $245,536,391; and pork from $5,000,
000 to $8,000,000 annually.
A shrewd little female scamp in St.
Louis collected about $50 during the
holidays from benevolent persons in the
following manner: She would get into
a horse-car, nay her fare, ride a long
distance, ami then tell the conductor t
let her out at a street remote from the
point where the car then was. "Why,
you are on the wrong car, three or four
miles from where you want to go," the
conductor would answer. Thereupon
the little shivering wretch would begin
to cry bitterly, and the other passengers,
aglow with seasonable kindness, would
take up a collection for her benefit.
The Vienna Neue Freie lYctse quotes
from Tacitus his de--ription of the col
lapse of the wooden amphitheatre at
Fidenae during the rei-n f Tiberius, by
which, according to the anuals, 50.000
persons were'killed or w ounded. The
immense structure was a flimsy affair,
put up by a certain Ailius, and there is
ruuch comfort after reading about the
horrors of the catastrophe and the meas
ures adopted to prevent their repetition,
in being informed by Tacitus, with
characteristic terseness, that "Atiliu
MEN 01 THE DAY. T
LIEUT. GEO. W. DE LOffQ.
The subject of this sketch, Lieutenan
Geo. W. lie Long was born in New
York City, in 1844. He was appointed
an acting midshipman in 1861, and in
the ordinary course of promotion he
was made lieutenant in 1869. In 1873
he was appointed navigator of the relief
ship Juniata, sent to the arctic seas in
search of the survivors of the Polaris.
The story of the loss of the Jeannette,
and of the safe arrival of a part of her
officers and crew at the mouth of the
Lena River, in Siberia, after a boat and
sledge journey unparalleled in the his
tory of arctic adventure, has been be
fore the public for months. Societies
have eagerly waited, since her depart
ure for tlie frozen seas in 1879, for news
of her whereabouts, and the suspense of
the past year is prominent In the public
mind. . - ,
The Jeannette was crushed in ice on
the 23d of last June, more than six
months ago. For three months the
brave Commander De Long and his
party were struggling with the terrors
and dangers of the frozen seas before
they could reach human habitations,
ana three months more have elapsed
while the news of their escape traversed
the barren wastes of Siberia, and finally
reached St. Petersburg, from whence it
was transmitted in all haste to every
part of the civilized world. But beyond
the mere fact that the Jeannette is lost,
and that most if not all of hor crew ro
saved, nothing is 3et known of the thrill
ing adventures through which this gal
lant ship and her brave company have
passed. The story of nearly two years
of arctic experience is 3et to be told a
story which is awaited with anxious im
patience. No New Jokes
There is absolutely nothing new in
jokes. They never die. The jokes that
are familar to us are those which our
ancestors enjoyed. They are found in
the most ancient literature that re
mains, and in hierogly phics of the ruin
ed monuments of dead empires. Their
unchanged existence through these ages
does not allow that these, like the earth
and man, may have . been created by a
Erocess of development; they must have
een created bsolutely. At some st age
of the work of cffniio tie jokes were
launched into being, and they have con
tinued to revolve by their own gravity,
the same as the planets. None of them
can be annihilated any more than mat
ter, nor can another be added. No per
son who attojnpts originality can get re
cognized as a wit, but jiriy mau can,
who has talent for memorizing the old
stock jokes and funny stories, and for
working them over on all occasions.

The traveler in Sweden and Norway
sees many customs which indicate that
the people are unusually courteous
and honest. At the railway dining sta
tions, a large table is set in the centre
of a spacious room, ' Upon it are dis
played a variety of tempting dishes, and
piles of warm plates with knives, forks,
The passengers enter without confu
sion, walk around the central table, se
lect what dishes they like best, and then
seat themselves at little marble tables
scattered n the room. Every person,
remembering that hii neighbor may like
the dish of which he partakes, helps
himself with moderation. For the din?
ner a fixed sum is charged, about thirty?
nine cents; but wine, beer, and coffee
being extras, the guest tells how much
of each he has drank, Jlis word is taken
without question, as no one watches
On board the steamboats three meals
ft day are served, which, however, are
not included in the price of the passage.
After each meal, the passenger who has
partaken writes his name in a large
book, and records under it what he has
eaten or drank.
When he is ready to go ashore, he
calls one of the waiters a girl who
puts the price against every item, adds
up the amount, and puts the sum she
receives in her pocket- When the
money becomes too heavy, she gives it,
without counting, to the stewardess.
All is left to the honesty of the peo
ple. Instead of this confidence beget
ting laxity, it makes everyone careful to
pty to the uttermost penny. His honor
is. at stake; therefore be feels obliged to
be very particular.

An Arkansaspaper tells a story on
John ArMeeks, a traveling man for
.Weil & Brother, of St. Louis. He had
just stepped off a train at a small town
in the southern part of the State, when
he was accosted by a couutiyman, who
asked, deferentially, "What i your name,
'Well, Brother Meet., I am here with
ft spring-wagon, and am at your service.
Are you readv to go now? Where is
Mecks did not question the man who
had addressed him, supposing bim to be
ft merchant of the village not far distant
He had. been wondering if any means of
transportation would be 'within reach,
and considered himself fortunate in se
curing a spring-wagon. The trip to the.
village was mainly characterized by sil
ence. The driver made one or two al
lusions to religious matters, which
Meeks answered laconically. When the
spring-wagon arrived at the village.
Meeks was driven to the residence of a
prominent citizen, Mr. George Young,
where an excellent supper was waiting.
Mr. Young and his family were de
lighted to see the young man. Young
laughingly alluded to the large trunks
of his guest, remarking that the old saddle-bag
days were over. Meeks smiled
over a chicken bone, and affably agreed
with his host
After supper the party repaired to the
parlor, where miscellaneous conversa
tion, tempered by a religions tone, was
engaged in. Finally Mr. Young, hand
ing Meeks a Bible, requested him to read
a certain chapter, which the young man
did. .Then Young, clearing his throat
at one of his children, andnodding to
"Brother Meggs, lead us in prayer."
"Meggs, thedeuse!" exclaimed Meeks.
"My name is not Meggs. What in
thunder does all this mean, any way? I
am a St. Louis drummer "
"What!" exclaimed Young. "Are you
not the man who was sent here to preach
for us to-morrow?"
"I am sent here to sell you goods, but
hanged if I'll preach for any body."
A rap at the door interrupted the con
versation. A J'oung man, fatigued and
muddy, entered and introduced himself
as Preacher Meggs. The mistake was
then explained. The driver of the
spring-wagon had taken the wrong man.
Poorllej "hoofed" it seven miles.
Aa Iatolligeat Ape.
A man of strict veracity relates these
two facts, of which he was an eye-witness.
He had a very intelligent ape, to
whom he amused himself by giving wal
nuts, of which the animal was extreme
ly fond. One day he placed them at
such a distance from the ape that the
animal, restrained by his chain, could
not reach them. After many useless ef
forts to indulge himself in his favorite
delicacy, he Tiappened to see ft servant
pass by with a napkin under his arm.
lie immediately seized hold of it, whisk
ed it out beyond his arm to beat the nuts
within his reach, and so obtained posses
sion of them. His mode of breaking the
walnuts was a fresh proof of his inven
tive powers. He placed the walnut upon
the ground, let a great stone fall on it,
and so got at its contents. One day the
ground on which he had placed the wal
nut was so much softer than usual that,
instead of breaking the walnut, the ape
only drove it into the earthy "yhatdoes
the animal do? He takes up a piece of
tile, places the walnut ujxn it, and then
lets the 6tone fall while the walnut is in

A Perplexing "Weddug.
'May a man marry his wife's deceas
ed sister?'' was a question which uted
to be put, as a hoax, to college f peshr
men, by "experts in the junior class;
and the tyro would often argue at good
length until a broad Jaugh among by
standers revealed the trick in the query.
"May a man marry his deceased wife's
sister?" is the form in which the inquiry
is raised by late chronicles. ,
A recent story from Long Island ia
that a wife and mother, enfeebled by
disease, and believing that she was soon
to die, sought to assuage her anxiety
for the future of her little ones by pro
moting a match between her husband
and her sister. The invalid no doubt
had read extensively in the cautionary
literature relating to step-mothers, and
cou4d not bear to leave the selection of
one for her babes to chance or, what is
much the same thing, the widower's
choice. Jler sister, the children's lov
ing aunt, would be, she was sure, still
more loving as a mother. She adjured
the sister and the husband to give her
the comfort of seeing them solemnly
married before she should close her eyes
upon the world. They at length acced
ed; a wedding was held; whereupon,
being relieved in mind, she straightway
began to recover in body, and at last ac
pounts was much better than had been
expected. In short, she is getting
welL And the question in the neigh
borhood now is, What about that wed
ding? It "goes without .saying" that this
ceremony was no marriage. The con
sent or request of the wife could not
take the place of a divorce, op dispense
with the law which forbids, a marriage
by one having a wife living. It is not
clear that it would even warrant a
prosecution for bigamy. True, here was
a married man formally taking another
wife. Every outward aspect of bigamy
Is presented. But judges have a maxin
that there is no crime where there is no
criminal intent; and a jurv would per
haps be told that if they believed that
the husband and the sister did not intend
or suppose they were contracting a pres
ent marriage, but only meant by the
ceremony to attest in the most binding
manner to the dying woman that they
were to t9 married as soon as they law
fully might, therptvaa. no bigamy, The
case, though a very earnest one, would
probably be likened in law to a mock
marriage, such as is sometimes per
formed in jest at an evening entertain
ment. What is better worth knowing is thai
serious questions hare arisen whether
engagements to marry,' made while one
of the parties is already married, are of
any effect. Suppose the wife in the
story had died, and the husband had
been disposed to say to th slstars J
only promised to marry you, and went
through the pretence of doing so, to re
lieve my wife's mind.' Could she sue
him for preach of promise? Cases have
occurrred in which a man already wed
ded has courted another woman, and ob
tained her promise to marry him when
he should become free by divorce or
death. And if he has, when that time
came, refii!ed, and she lias brought
suit, lawyers for her have argued that
his engagement was a binding one; it
was like a contract to sell a farm which
one expect3 to buy, and he must perform
it or pay damages. But the current of
thought among judges is that all such
engagements are "contrary to public
policy" and void. A married persom
cannot make a binding promise to mar
ry, not even with reference to a time
when freedom to fultill it is expected.
Whoever, knowing the marriage, trusts
to such 3 promise, does not even gain
a right to sue for breach. But a man
anu in that character engages nimseu to
a woman ignorant of his ties, cannot es
cape damages on this ground. N. T.
