Origin of the Con cIcnco"Fund.
[ Washington Cor. Philadelphia Record. ]
Every now and then you see an an
nouncement in the papers to the effect
that some anonymous person has for
warded to the treasurer of the United
States at Washington a contribution to
the conscience fund. You suppose from
this that there is somewhere in the treas
ury a fund made up of such contribu
tions , which , by this time , must bo ol
very considerable size. Now , the fact
is , that there is no such thing as a separ
ate fund for the contributions of
the conscience-stricken. Such con
tributions have always been con
veyed into the treasury under
the head of miscellaneous receip's.
The term "Conscience .Fund" was the
invention of old Treasurer Spinner , the
man with an autograph which was auto-
Twenty years ago , during the war , a
letter was one day received at the treas
ury department from a man who , en
closing a cheek for $1,500 , said that that
represented a little misappropriation of
government funds of which ho had boon
guilty when acting as quartermaster m
the army of the United States.
Then came the happy idea into Spin
ner's handsome head. "We'll call that
a contribution to the conscience fund , "
he said , "and have it announced in the
newspapers , and perhaps we'll get some
more. " The contribution to the con
science fund was duly announced all over
the country. The treasury department
promptly got "Lomcmore. " From that
time on for ten years the con
tributions were very numerous' .
During the pist ; ten years they have
been constantly growing more infre
quent. It is a problem whether the
conscience of the country is growing more
callous or more lender. The contribu
tions to the conscience fund have never
been very largo in amount. The largest
ever made was $ -1,000 , forwarded by a
former internal revenue ganger in Chicago
cage as the amount of the bribe ho
took from distillers who desired to de
fraud the government. It will be seen
that none of the big thieves who have
fattened on public plunder have ever
availed themselves of this easy way ot
making partial reparation.
Au Early TVritlng-Paper.
[ St. Nicholas. ]
Many centuries before Christ , .Numa
left writings upon the papyrus , whence
our name , paper , is derived. This plant ,
which was revered as sacred by the old
Egyptians , grows abundantly in shallow
streams and marshes in upper Egypt
and Syria. Bruce found it growing in
the river Jordan , and noticed a curious
fact , that it always presented the sharp ,
angular side of its pear-shaped stem
to the swift current. The stem is eight
or ten feet high , two inches in diameter ,
and crowned with a fringe of
hair-like leaves , which circle a
blossom of slender spikelets. Beneatli
the brown sheath which envelops the
root-stalk of this dark-green plant lie
other sheaths which are very transpar
ent. These , when split into thin leave
and dried in the sun , were glued to
gether , and formed the roll of papyrus
on which many of the ancient writing
have come down to us. This paper \v ; ;
both flexible and durable. Spccim'M
from Pompeii can be seen in the muhL-un
at Naples. In the fifth century papyru
paper , of which many varieties existed
was largely manufactured at Alexandria
and ranked high in the commerce o :
nations. Its use continued until abou
seven or eight centuries ago.
Tlic Hudson's Bay Route.
[ Chicago News. ]
Some time ago we took occasion to
direct the attention of our readers to
the Manitoban project of communication
with Europe via Hudson's bay , and it is
as well , now that the matter has taken
definite shape , that we should acquaint
them with its progress. The scheme is ,
in brief , to construct a railroad from
Y > rinnipeg to Fort Churchill , on Hud
son's bay , whence steamers will convey
freight to Liverpool. As a mat
ter of course , the enterprise
depends upon the settlement of
the question , considered very doubtful
at present , whether the straits forming
the entrance to the bay are free from
ice long enough to permit of its being
conducted with profit. In the mean
time a railway from Winnipeg to Fort
Churchill has been chartered with a land
grant of 12,800 aeres per mile , and the
steamer Neptune , with a scientific expe
dition commanded by Lieut. Gordon , of
the British navy , cither has sailed or is
on the point of sailing from Halifax to
remain in the bay for a year to watch
the straits. That is the state of the case
Suiciding : Gamblers.
[ Exchange. ]
Statistics show that the tendency to sui
cide is much greater among regular gam
blers from losses than among business
men. The sharp strain of the gaining
table , short though it may be , spoils the
nerves and weakens fortitude more than
Lhe strain of business. Cavernoiii'of the
iuost serene of men , was within : in ace
m one great gambling night of throw
ing half his fortune away rather than
call a card , and only called it , as he re
lates himself , because a drop of perspira-
Lion rose on his opponent's forehead.
[ New York World. ]
There is no flag , banner , gonfalon or
jriflamme in existence so beautiful as
; he ensign of the American republic. Its
colors are the most beautiful to be found
n the rainbow. Its combination is
xesthetic. Our Hag is to all other Hags
ivhat the rose is to the botanical king-
loin and the eagle to the ornithological
species. Our bosom not only swells with
) ride when we behold the emblem of our
: ountry , but our artistic sense is lulled
: o sweet repose.

"How-often do you present your bill
