NKW YOHK , Nov. 23. The President-
, elect Cleveland left town to-day in
search of rest. Since election he has
been fairly overrun with callers , and
the volume of his correspondence has
been somethingenormous. .
Talking before his departure to-day
with a reporter. Mr. Cleveland .said :
"I fully appreciate the good will and
friendliness which these letters indi
cate , and bliiill not omit , as time al
lows , to read every one of them.
These ( rood friends , of course ,
will not expect any replies
to their communications , for
that would be utterly out of the ques
tion , and the most that 1 can do is to
say through the press that I am not
unmindful of their kindness. Many
of the callers whom I have been
obliged to receive would not , I think ,
have encroached upon my time if they
had given the matter a moment's
reflection. Those who have
called upon me to talk about
otliccs , it seems to me , have boon in
considerate and oremature. I desire
to give as much publicity as possible
to the stutemcut that I do not propose
to consider applications for office prior
to my inauguration and 1 shall avoid
all interviews on that subject. Those
who , under any pretense , gain an op
portunity to present their applications
orally , and those who burden me
at this time with written applications ,
cannot possibly do anything which
would so interfere with their chances
of success. Written applications will
be so little regarded that L doubt if
they ever see the files in Washington ,
for there is no reason or deceny in my
being overwhelmed with such matters
at this time. "
Upon being asked how long he ex-
peeted to be. away on his vacation. Mr.
Cleveland replied : " 1 am not certain ,
it will depend upon various -onditions.
1 expect , however , tu be absent two
weeks , and when 1 ivt.irn , unless I am
somewhat relieved irum the un
necessary dcuuinds upon my
time to which I have been sub
jected here thus far I shall
shut up my city house and liml some
more quiet plaee to spend the winter.
Certainly between now and March 4 I
ought , to have sonu- time to devote to
other matters than receiving callers
and considering- subjects which should
be postponed. "

And BO beside the silent sea
I wait the muffled oar ;
No harm from him can come to ma
On ocean or on shore.
I know not whore his islands lift
Their Trended palms In air ;
I only know I cannot drift
Beyond his love and care.
O brothers ! If my faith Is vain ,
If hopes like these betray.
Pray for mo that my feet may gain
The sure and safer way.
BETSY'S SLIPPERS ,
I was traveling in Irelandswith some
friends. Wo were in the southeastern
part of the island and were traversing
Connemara , the poorest part of that
poor country. If anything can give a
horrible impression of drought and
misery it certainly is Connemara.
A profound dolor seems to rest upon
that corner of the earth. Low plains
destitute of verdure extend at the right
to a chain of mountains , which are bare ,
as though they had been ravaged by lire.
These immense spaces are without a vil
lage , often without even a single dwell
The few which we pass at long inter
vals consist only of four stone walls
piled up without cement , and with a
black roof. From the back of these
dreary cabins issues a thin thread of
In front of them one sees children
from five to twelve years old with naked
feet , ' sun scorched skins and ragged
clothing. They utter uncouth sounds
in a language which is partly Irish ,
partly English. They usually run after
the carriage for several miles. With a
supplicating hand they extend to you
some serb of rude merchandise ; it may
bn ronrrhlv hewn woorlfin simps ; if ; inav
be woolen stockings ; it may be a little
bunch of flowers plucked from the
mountain side. They run shouting ,
hurrying , hustling each other.
"Penny , please ! penny , please ! " they
repeat over and over. A penny is finally
cast to them.
Immediately there is brawling , strug
gling and fist pounding. The conquerer
deserts the ranks of our followers , but
the others still pursue the carriage.
One by one the small flock drop away.
First the youngest become exhausted
and stop. At last there are only three
then two then only one , who in his
turn rolls in the dust raised by the
wheels , uttering a last "Penny , please ! "
with labored and panting breath.
About 11 o'clock we arrived at
Ougterard , near Lake Corrib. This
lake is said to contain as many islands
and also as many inhabitants as there
are days in the year. Here we took
For a long time a little girl of about
twelve followed our carriage. She alone
had persisted of five or six children- , the
rest of whom had dropped away as we
passed along. Tall and slender for her
age , she had a charming face of the
true Irish type of beauty. Her com
plexion was darkly browned and she had
large blue eyes. Her long run had put
roses into her cheeks ; her parted lips
showed her brilliant teeth. A ragged
brown linen waist and skirt composed
her costume. Her naked feet , which
were remarkably small and pretty ,
seemed to fly through the dust. Poor
little one ! Our hearts ached to look at
Suddenly she uttered a cry , extended
her arms and fell forward. We stopped
the carriage , but fortunately nothing
serious had befallen her. A projecting
stone had slightly cut her foot , which
bled a little. We asked her who she
was and from whence she came. She
called herself Betsy and said that she
lived at Ougterard. We told her to
climb into the carriage and we would
carry her to her home. She looked at
us in bewilderment , as though she could
not understand what we were saying.
We repeated our offer. She blushed
with pleasure and gave us a look which ,
although full of inquiry and wonder ,
was yet most grateful. She seemed to
be overjoyed at riding in a carriage. It
was her first experience of that kind.
Ten minutes later we were in Oug-
torard , a poor village of forty houses.
We gave two shillings to the child as a
parting present. She looked at it as
though she could not believe her eyes.
It occurred to me that the wound in her
foot might be inflamed "by a walk in the
dust. I therefore entered a shoemaker's
shop , the only one the place afforded ,
and bought a pair of slippers for the
Betsy watched this operation in pro
found perplexity. When I extended the
slippers toward her , saying they were
for her , she was dumfounded , intox
icated , dazzled. She dared not take
Finally , as I firmly insisted that the
slippers were for her and her alone , she
seized them and fled with a bound of
joy , and without even saying " Thank
you ! "
"Little savage ! " thought I ; "she does
not even know how to thank anybody. "
I rejoined my companions , who were
already seated around the hotel dining-
table , and we had soon finished our
breakfast and were about to climb into
our carriage , when I felt a little hand
within mine which sought to detain me.
"Come , sir ! " she said , "come ! "
"And where do you wish to lead me ? "
"To our house. It is very near. "
I followed her. My companions were
not a little puzzled. She led me to the
bottom of a narrow street. There we
paused before a humble cottage. She
pushed the door open and we entered.
The interior consisted of a single room.
It was without a floor and contained
scarcely any furniture. It was dimly
lighted by the feeble rays which entered
through a paper covered window , near
which sat an old woman spinning. She
was Betsy's grandmother. At our en
trance three little .black pigs scampered
Hnder her bench.gruntingv In the cor
ner stood 4h6j lowly Tied of the grandmother -
mother ; , at its side the little , cot of the
chifyl. yjiEt above " -her pillow Betsy
showed me a kind of roughstaging lean
ing against the wall. Upon the middle
board covered with a very white linen
cloth , beneath an image of St. Patrick ,
and between two bunches of white
flowers , I perceived the little slippers !
The poor child looked at her shrine of
beauty with admiration and even with
religious awe , as upon a precious relic.
"But you should put the slippers on
your feet. They are for you to wear , "
said I. I could not help laughing to see
them set up as sacred objects of devo
She appeared astonished , almost an
gry. "Oh , never ! " she said earnestly.
They are too beautiful ! "
Wo slipped some money into the
pocket of the old grandma and bade
adieu to Betsy ; but she could not bear
to leave us yet , and followed us quite to
the carriage , and looked after it with
eyes full of tears as long as it could be
* * * * * *
'A month later we passed through the
same place on our return trip and made
a halt there as before. We did not see
Betsy. Before quitting that country , to
which I never expected to return , I
wished to see her again , if only for a
I sought out and knocked at the door
of the poor little cabin.
No one opened it.
I lifted the rude latch and entered.
A sad spectacle presented itself to my
eyes. Around the little bed of Betsy ,
lighted by three smoking candles , some
old women were kneeling and reciting
prayers in a monotonous voice. Upon
my entrance the chant stepped and one
of the old women arose and came to me.
It was the grandmother. She recog
nized me immediately , and two large
tears ran over her wrinkled cheeks.
"Betsy , " murmured I ; "where is
Betsy ? "
In a few broken words she explained
to me that Betsy had taken a fever and
had just died.
I approached the cot. The pale face
of'the child wore a peaceful expression.
Her long black hair lay over her shoul
ders in heavy curls , but her beautiful
bright eyes were shut. Clasped in her
thin , blue veined hands and pressed
closely to her heart were the image of
St. Patrick and the two little slippers.
During all the time she had been sick ,
the old dame told me , she had held them
in her hands. I begged the old woman
to bury them with her.
A tear came to my eyes. I leaned over
the poor Irish child and imprinted a kiss
upon her forehead. Translated from the
French of Jacques Normand by Harriet
L. B. Potter for Romance.
Bread Blade of Peanuts.
The imperial German health authori
ties have been engaged in experiments ,
the object of which was to ascertain
whether a healthful bread could be made
of a mixture of rye flour and peanuts.
Incidentally it was discovered that the
refuse left after the oil has been ex
tracted from peanuts contains 50 per
cent , of albuminous matter. Such being
the case , bread made with an admixture
of peanuts or peanut refuse would cer
tainly be highly nutritious , inasmuch as
the nutritive element of any kind of
bread is mainly albuminous.
Wheat and rye flours have only about
11 or 12 per cent , of albuminous matter
in them. When oil has been extracted
by pressure or otherwise from a vegeta
ble substance , the residue is called "oil
cake. " All qilcakes are largely albumi
nous. Flaxseed oilcake contains more
than 40 per cent , of such elements , and
the oilcake of cotton seed is about the
same. It is generally supposed that pea
nuts are very indigestible. Another
question involved is whether they could
be grown more cheaply than wheat ,
which would seem to be very doubtful.
Perhaps , however , peanut bread is to
be looked forward to as a luxury of the
future. Washington Star.
All Hallow Even , or Halloween , the
evening before All Saints' Day , the 1st
of November , has yet another title in the
north of England namely , Nutcrack
Night , the derivation of which is ob
vious enough. Impartially weighed
against the others , it is perhaps the very
best time of the whole year for discov
ering just what sort of husband or wife
one is to be blessed withal.
Of old time , to go back to the usual
source of such things , the Romans had
a feast of Pomona at this time , and it
was then that the stores laid up in the
summer for use in the winter were
opened. The appropriateness of the use
of nuts and apples at this time thus be
comes apparent. But when a festival
flourishing in the British isles has fires
connected with it , look sharp for a
Drnidical origin and it will not usually
be necessary to look far. Now Hallow
een has fires connected with it and a
Druidical connection , if not actual ori
gin , seems highly probable. New York
TVhat "Winkers" Are For.
One of the employments of electricity
just now is to make "winkers , " to hang
from high places. They are incandescent
lights , hoisted on a flagpole or run out
from a window , and the current is inter
rupted and turned on again by clock
work mechanism. A man sees the light ,
then he notices that it is gone. While
wondering what has become of it it re
appears. This is supposed to rouse
his interest to such an extent that he
will ask somebody what it is for , and
the man who displa3s the light will then
get an advertisement if he has luck.

Learning Dentistry in Japan.
A twelve-year-old Japanese boy sat on
the floor in a dentist's office in Japan

thumb and forefinger. As the strength

The time when it makes a man the
maddest to call him a liar is when he
knows you tell the truth.
An honest Swede tells his story in plain but
unmistakable language for the benefit of the
public. One of my children took a severe cokl
and got the croup. I gave her a teaspponful
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and in five
minutes later I gave her one more. By this
time she had to cough up the gathering in her
throat. Then she went to sleep and slept good
for fifteen minutes. Then she got up and vom
ited ; then she went back tobecland slept good
for the remainder of the night. She got the
croup the second night and I gave her the
same remedy with the same good results. I
write this because I thought there might be
some one in the same need and not know the
true merits of this wonderful medicine. Chas.
