, our city thugs and loafer be trusted
In the prw .a of a work of art or a
'.'thing of beauty T It seems t6 be a sort
t of Instinct with him to throw a stone

', or to pull out a knlro and hack at them,
or to upset or scratch or lnjuro them.
'In ft ccrtnln blind and brute way por

anything useful or beautiful himself,
;-but he cah destroy It. The only vay
' to cure theso vandals appears to bo
cither to educate them early or drown
them. Drowning la the lca9t expen
sive, hut there Is a public prejudice
'against IL to for a few centuries wo
muBt expect to soo our public- buildings
VUstoced. our motal work bent and
Scratched, our plate glass broken, our
' street lights shattered, our pictures
'J.ilibtd with canes nnd umbrellas, our
f nijrrdrs marked with Initials carved by
tilhiribnd rings, our rugs nnd carpets
' Vnrt wood work rpnt' upon, our walls

deppnltorlen of filth and our hooka torn
nnd dog-eared: for It takes n long time
"lo euro n vandal of his vandalism. Ono
"needs to begin wjth his father. There
Is no close a relation between the wan
tonness of tho destroyer nnd tho dark
er deeds of th criminal that perhaps
' wo are Justified In keeping a minplclotis
watch on any man. woman or child who
will destroy plrtntB. books and pictures
or throw, stones tit helpless animals.
Jfl'fi feHslve aggression that mutilates
hhd niaken ugly will trespass on others'
enjoyments, rights and properties with
but little more development. This Is
.Jceen ,partiqtilnrly in the case ot bur-
j&lnra. Theso fellows, not content with
dripping a house of all they can get,
' not Infrequently destroy whnt they
cannot enrry away. Thoy burn papers,
tear paintings from their frames,
pmnnh furniture, break glnuH and other?
' wlso act like Inctirnato Mends. It might
! not bo bad Idea in case of tho cap-
turo ot Ihese hiPn to Impose sentences
; jtrndedfio accord with tho amount of
'damage they had worked. It would
nako others of their tribe a little more
yuiildorate porhops. On general
principles theso wanton destroyers
should go to prison, anyway. Ex.

SURVIVAL OF NEW NOVELS.
tcrcnUKA of Iloottf That" Gain Eodar
Idc Fnm It Exlremefy Bmtll.
It is said that the American publish
ers hare In Dresa over two hundred
ew novots wnicn aro iiKeiy 10 do -
Rued between now nnd the holidays.
The statement Is easily credible. In
1800 thoy Jostled 1.118 hovoIb; In 1S91,
1,105; In 1892, 1,102, nnd In 1893, 1,132.
This average of three novels put on tho
market for ovcry day in tho year In
cludes Imported books Issued by Eng
lish houses and published In Now York
by their resident ngonta, but It docs
not includo tho publications of the
"minor cheap libraries." Tho English
publishers Issue about tho Fame num
ber of novels yearly as tho American.
In 1S33, an average year, they Issued"
933 new novels and 393 reprints.
The Interesting attention of what be
comes of all this mass of "literature"
Is answered only In part by the five
cent counters. Many of theBe books
must fall to obtain tho honorable it
humiliating ueofulitesa the llvo-cent
counters offcra to thoso for whom the
dollar sholu-a aro no longer tonablc.
ihoy do not circulate nt all. A fow
copies nro sont to tho newspapers. Tho
author dlntrlhuten complimentary cop
ies among hlo acquaintances, nnd he
Is fortunato If he flnda even among hl
Intimate friends those who can recall
tho title of hia work within six months
nfter lta publication. That "among
nlno Imd If ono bo good thcro'B still
ono good In ten" in a comforting
thourht. but It hnrdly applies to con
temporaneous fiction, for hardly ono In
a thousand nnd certainly not ono In ft
hundred of tho novels publltdicd stands
the only Buro test of merit aa a novel
that of survival. Only In raro 'In
stances do they outlive their first year.
Tho man wbono book actually Uvea ton
years may sot hlmnolf down as n genius
whother the critics think so or not.
Only onco or twice In n generation do
writers appear whoc stories havo
enough of universal human naturo In
them to survive their generation. Aud
this is all as It should be. it la vroll
enough for the most worthless of all
worthless books to be written If IL real
ly reprcBentK an naplrutlon to produce
something worth tho attention of tho
world, but It is better ntlll that swift
and inorcifiil oblivion ohould cover fail
ure. In novels no In everything else the
fittest should ho the survivors. And
In the long run they nltvnyu are.

Mrao. IJonaparte learned with Intense
sorrow of tho tloterminntion taken by
her husband. In tho main his measures
nnd his convictions had been kept a
secret, but sho confided both to Slute,
do llomusat, and tho first consul him
self hnd told them to Joseph. On the
20th tho decrro for the tluko'n Impris
onment and trial was dictated by tho
first consul from tho Tullerlco, and In
tho early afternoon bn roturnod to Ma.1
mnlfcon, whero at thrco o'clock Joseph
found him atrolllng in tho park, con
versing with Talloyrand, who limped
along at his side. "I'm afraid of that
cripple," was Jrphinc's greeting to
her brothtr-in-lftw. "Interrupt this

memories of lt!s own nnd his brother's
boyhood, among which came and went
the flguro of tho Prince of Condi. But
other feelings prevailed; tho brothers
bad diftered about Luclon's marriage
and tho quostion of descent If tho con
sular power should become horodltary;
the old coolnc&s finally settled down
and chilled tho last hopes in the tender
hearted advocates for clomoncy. To
Josephine's toarful entroatlea for
mercy, hor husband replied: "Go away;
you're a child; you don't understand
publio duties." Dy five It wan known
that the duko had arrived at Vln
conuoB, and at onco Savary was de
spatched to tho city for orders from
Murat, the military commandant. On
his arrival at Murat's office, from
which Talleyrand was In tho very net
of departing, ho was Informed that the
court martial was already convenod,
and that it would be his duty to guard
the prisoner and execute whatever son
tenco was paESed. "Ltfo of Nnpoleon,"

him as guilty of the duke's ruurdor.

his will, wrote in his own hand: "I had
the Interest, and tha honor of the
French people, when by his own con
fession the Cointe d'Artois was sup
porting sixty assasslnc In Paris. Under
similar circumstances I would again
do likewise." Nevertheless he gave
himself the utmost pains on certain oc
casions to unload .tho entire responsi
bility on Talleyrand. To Lord Ebrlng

hail checked his impulses to clemency.

President Cleveland is likely to Ret
Miucli more satisfaction out of the
Venezuelan Iloundarv Commission.
whl h Is being highly commended hy
over body, than out of the result of
he political ecliiMriitig that is now
iriiiK done hy republican senators.
Instead of trying to help thu National
fltianeet) out or the hole Into which
hey havo been put by the adhcrauce

CantfrjSM's, the lopiiblfcau Senators

a vengeance, hut it its note the less
ti ue. There Isn't the slightest prob
thillty thai.' the Srnatu will oiler the
Hlmuiitriitlon any llnaucial iegihi

(insistently accept, and while pre
endlng to thu contrary republican
senitois are purposely delaying ac
ion showing what their intentions
ire, hoping that President 'Cleveland
vili become' impatient ' and Issue
uoie bonds under tlin old law. Then
they will swear that if Mr. Cleveland
had wailed they would havo Jegtslat
fd so as to havo saved the people's
noney, mid more tf the saniu sort of
ot. And they expect this sort ol
t ling to go down with the intelligent
,ieojile. of the country. It. is possible
to admire an open and honorable op-
lonent, but uot suih trickery aa Is
tow being indulged In by the oppo
nents of the adtn nlstratlou. From
ho Hist, President Cleveland has
een open and above board In his
eaiingn with Congress and the coun
ryon this subject. He told them
lulnly that unless Congress provhled
onto other way to maintain the pub
ic credit, lie would do so by issuing
nofo bonds. Llt.t he will not issue
lure bond until he considers the
danger line to have been reached.
