Onoof Disraeli's favorite, ideas was
that London ought to be mode the
most magnificent city in the world a
real Kaiserotadt or imperial town, a
model to all other cities in the character
cf-ite public buildings, the sanitary per
fection and outer picturesquenees of its
private houses, the width of its streets,
tc When Napoleon IIL commence
the re-ediiication of Paris he used to
cay: "Is it not pitiful that the Emperor
should be doing by force what we could
do so much better of our own free will
If we bad a proper pride, to say nothing
of good sense, in the matterP" Ha
found many congenial listeners, and on
in particular, Mr. Baillie Cochrane, now
Lord Lamington (the Buckhurst of
Coningaby, ) whose artistic tastes are
well known. But he was generally net
by some such theories as satisfied the
Aylesbury tradesman, or by talk about
that eternal want of peace which vexes
public men. Once when he was staying
at Knole he launched ou( into a parody
of Macaulay's idea of the New Zea
fander meditating over the ruins of
London Bridge. He imagined this per
sonage reconstructing a row of villas at
Brixton: "What a picture he would
make of H: he would naturally suppose
that knowing how to build, and having
Just awoken to a knowledge of sanita
tion, we had built according to the best
Ideas in our heads." Then he took his
New Zealander among the rains of the
stately commercial palaces crowded
in narrow lanes all round the Bank and
the Exchange: "He would conclude
that there must after all have been
some tyrannical laws which prevented
our merchants from combining their re
sources to make their streets spacious
and effective, for it would seem absurd
to him that intelligent men should, at a
great cost, have built palaces for them
selves in holes and corners where nobody
could admire them properly, when, by
acting in concert, they might at much
less expense have set much finer palaces
in noble avenues, courts and squares."
Then Disraeli broke out into an ani
mated description of his regenerate
London, with Wren's four grand ap
proaches to St. Paul's, boulevards tran
secting the metropolis in all directions,
and the palace of Whitehall rebalH
after Inigo Jones' designs to make new
Government offices. Ho would have
covered the embankment pedestals
with statues of Admirals set in colossal
groups recalling great naval achieve
ments, and he thought Stepney ought
to have its cathedral of St. Peter the
church of a sea-faring nation, dedicated
to the fisherman saint and containing
memorials to aM the humble heroes,
sailors or fishermen, who lost their lives
performing acts of courage on the wa
ter. "The names of such men ought
not to perish," he used to say. When
lie had finished speaking somebody ob
served that his plan would cost 200,
tWO.OOO, and convert every rate-payer
into a porcupine. "We may have to
pay 500,000,000 in the end for doing
things in the present way," he answered;
"and as to the porcupine, ho is manage
able enough if you handle him in the
right way. Temple Bar.

An- unfortunate clerk tells the story of
lis experiences with this advertiser, sad
from other sources it has been learned
that there are many persoas engaged in
the nefarious business.
"I am a clerk, with a salary of twelve
dollars a week. Recently I was in want
of a lump sum of money, and the adver
tisement of a man who wants to lend
anonny on salaries caught my eyo. I
wrote to him, and by the next mail re
ceived bis name and address. It was

streets. I called at bis office, and after
some difficulty succeeded in borrowing
fiftv dollars. I was asked how long I
had been in my position (I am a elerk
on NaAsua street), then what I was get
ing in the way of salary, and finally
whether the cashier of the firm would
agree to pay my weekly orders from my
salary. I answered these questions, ana
said I would make the arrangements for
the payments. On the nextday I called
again,'and found the papers drawn up,
Undor these I was to pay six dollars a
week for seven weeks, and eight dollars
for the eighth week. But what do you
rthinkthe charges were' First, I paid
twenty-five cents for drawing the articles
of agreement, then I had to pay twenty
.11 ve cents more for a Notary's certficate,
snd then forty-three cents interest on
the money for two months. But the
crowning charge was a premium of ten
dollars for the accommodation. My
account then stood thus:
Paid for premium. ...
Vnltl for agreement...
1'iUd for notary
l'aid for interest.. .M,
ReoelTJfn cash 39 07
"Thus, when I paid interest, premium
and fees (which I did at the very start,
and had to do tinder the articles of agree
ment), I had thirty-nine dollars and seven
-ent. and was under engagement to
lay fifty dollars in eight weeks. This,
! estimated, is borrowing money at the
rnte of two hundred and fifty per cent
or annum. To tell you the straggle I
had for those eigh weeks to make both
nds meet at my little home would be
impossible. But I went through with it
.nd was finally free from the blood
sucker." "Are there many clerks. who patron
ise these usurers?"
"Hundreds of them. You see the ad-
-ortifiements are alluring, and most men
re willing to pay well for accommoda-
rons of this kind. Of course, they feel
-.re when they find that they are pav-
ijj that ten dollars premium, bat they
ru in debt to the usurer, for one reason
.- r another, at all times, and in the course
- " a year pay him one-half or perhaps
.- ore. of their salaries." N. r. Cor.
