It is now many years since I first visit ed Paris, but if I live to be a centenarian 1 am certain 1 shall not forget that first journey from London while 1 remember anything. 1 was then young and inex perienced, but sufficiently vain to think myself a paragon of wisdom. Like most Londoners. I thought that wonderful city the very heart of the world, and all outside of it mere suburbs. Well, ono fine morning, which hap pened to be the twenty-first anniversary of my existence, finding myself the lord ly proprietor of £1,000, 1 concluded to celebrate my freedom by running over to Paris and astonishing the natives. Fit ting myself out in a style that would have made me the envy of a Pawnee chief. 1 procured my passport and em barked for Calais. There were a great many more persons going over than I had expected to see, but 1 consoled my self with the probability that very few of them were destined for Paris, and that not a single one of them was q uite as well dressed as myself. 1 was pacing the deck of the steamer some two hours later when 1 felt a light tap on my shoulder and heard a very pleasant voice say: “Pardon me, my lord, but may 1 ven ture to ask if you are destined for Paris?” Now. 1 was in reality very f^r from being a lord, or even the kin of a lord, but there was something so very agree able in the title that 1 felt no special anxiety to disown it. 1 turned to the speaker and beheld a rather handsome, well dressed young man of perhaps 25, who smiled and held out his hand, ad ding: “I’ll wager a champagne supper, vis count, you are at ono of your old tricks again, traveling incognito. Well,” lie continued, heartily shaking my hand, “well met, I trust, and how are my Lord and Lady Albyn?" Drawing myself up with an air in tended to show a noble breeding, I said very stiffly: “ You are mistaken, sir—Albyn is not my family name." “A thousand pardons, my lord!” ex claimed the other in surprise. “1 see my mistake now; you are not my old friend, the viscount, but so like him that better eyes than mine have been deceived. Par don me again if I seem to trespass upon your good nature by introducing myself to your notice as the Hon. Robert Beau fort, youngest son of Lord Cawdale.” “Very happy, sir, to make your ac quaintance," returned 1, with a very stiff bow. “But why,” I pursued, feeling in ternally more flattered than I wished to have appear, and really delighted that I had come in contact with one of Eng land’s proud aristocracy, “why do you address me as if you knew me to be one of the nobility?” “Because, my lord,” your whole man ner shows to an experienced eye you are not a commoner.’’ “You are right,” said 1, with a smile intended to convey the impression that his shrewdness had penetrated my dis guise. “1 knew it, my lord!" he triumphantly exclaimed, “I knew it!” 1 did not caution him against address ing me according to my supposed rank, for besides the fact that the flattering sound was very agreeable to my ears I counted on its being disclosed to or over heard by others, and thus being myste riously elevated in their estimation. Long before we had crossed the chan nel the Hon. Mr. Beaufort and myself had become very intimate. He had trav eled a great deal, and of course 1 was in luck to fall in with him on this account, to say nothing of his being a son of a lord. Ho was going to show me Paris and French life, and 1 must leave all to him. He would look at my passport and also overhaul my trunk and tell me the exact amount of duty I should have to pay. This he did and then observed: “Oh. a matter of 10 guineas will see you through all right, my lord! Yours is a mere trifle—I wish mine was as lit tle—it will cost me a cool 100. but 1 sup pose you left at home all except absolute necessaries, as I ought to have done. By the way. as we are nearing Calais now, you may just hand me the amount, and 1 will arrange it without giving your lordship any trouble whatever. Yet stay!” he immediately added, with a vexed expression. “What am I thinking about, talking money affairs to your lord ship. 1 understand these things, and Fll arrange all. Put your baggage with mine, and we’ll make it all right at the end of the journey.” 1 began to think it was going to cost me something to keep up my title. As we drew near Calais all was excite ment and bustle on board our steamer, each one anxious to look out and get possession of his baggage and otherwise arrange for getting ashore at the earliest possible moment. As my friend had so kindly volunteered to take all trouble and responsibility off my hands. I felt very easy and contented and was amus ing myself with the fleet of little boats that had gathers d around ns when the Hon. Mr. Beaufort came hurrying up and drew me apart from the others. “1 find,” he said, “1 have not gold enough to pay the duties and get us to Paris. Could you oblige me with change for a £500 note?’ “Unfortunately,” 1 replied, “I have not more than 50 guineas in my posses sion, the rest of my funds being in i draft on Delessert & Co., Paris.” “How unfortunate! What is to bt done? By the bye, will you let me set your draft, my lord?” 1 produced it. "Stay a minute till I speak to the cap tain.” he said. “I think I can arrange it.” He hurried away with the draft in hi.1 hand. For the first time I felt a little suspicion of some trick and awaited hit return with some anxiety. He came back, however, in about 10 minutes and asked me for my passport, saying he thought he could get through without any trouble. As we had not yet reached the pier, 1 handed him that, but witl the resolve to have it back before going ashore. When some 10 minutes later he re turned with a cheerful smile, and fold ing up my papers put them in my hand, with the remark that all was right, I was so ashamed of my late suspicions that 1 felt myself blush. “The clerk,” he said, “has changed my note at a fair discount, giving mo hall gold and the rest in bills on the Bank ol France. By the bye, my lord, suppose you take a few. You may want to use them beforo you get your small draff cashed.” 1 declined at first, but he insisted sc strongly on my taking and carrying them, even though 1 thought I might not want to use them, that at first, fearing longer refusal would hurt his feelings, I consented to put them in my pocketbook. Under the management of my friend, who spoke French as fluently as English, everything got on smoothly, and I soon found myself transferred from the steamer to a fine hotel—without, as he had said, having any trouble whatever. Our passports meantime had been given up and sent on to Paris, and temporary ones, as is the custom, had been fur nished us in place of them. 1 will pass over the remainder of the journey with the simple remark that every moment more and more endeared me to my agreeable and aristocratic friend, and the only regret I had was in the fact of being in a false position, which sooner or later he might discover, to my grief and shame. On finally arriving at Paris our pass ports were again demanded, and no sooner was mine examined than the offi cer informed me that 1 was under arrest and must come with him. My French was none of the best, but in my surprise and consternation I made the best use of it 1 could and demanded what was meant by such proceedings. “Y7ou will find that out at your exam ination,” was his sharp reply. Then we were whirled to the office of a magistrate, and 1 was unceremoniously hurried into a small, close room, half filled with police officers, secret agents and lawyers. On tho bench sat a small, withered specimen of humanity, with a wig on his head and spectacles on his forehead. “Well,” he said, jerking down his spec tacles and taking a good stare at me, as did all the others, “what now?” As l could understand French much better than 1 could speak it, I was able to make out what was said, and to my utter astonishment I now heard myself accused of being a notorious swindler and counterfeiter. “What is your name?” demanded the commissary. “Ralph Hodge,” said I. “An alias,” said one of the police offi cers. “On his passport is Robert Beau fort.’' “A mistake, then!” cried 1. “That is the name of the gentleman that came over from London with me. He took my passport and must have changed it by mistake.” The officers smiled incredulously and exchanged glances with each other and the magistrate, and the latter shaking his head said it wouldn’t do. “My draft on Delessert & Co. will prove it!” exclaimed I, bethinking my self of that and producing it with trem bling eagerness. The commissary glanced over it and frowned. “Another mistake perhaps,” he said with ironical bitterness, pointing to the name of Robert Beaufort. The truth now flashed upon me. My companion then was no other than a pro fessional villain, who had played upon my foolish vanity and made me his dupe and scapegoat. I tried to make the mag istrate comprehend the true state of the case, but he either did not or would not understand me. After a good deal of trouble and delay, however, I managed to get the British embassy interested in my case, and in course of time the truth came out, and I was set at liberty. My money had all been drawn through long before, and the villain who had robbed and gulled me was safe across the frontier chuck ling over the arts by which he had de frauded a fool.—E. B. in New York News. Old Time Christmas. 1 cannot but sigh sometimes for the simplicity of the original Christmas or that of the middle age, when the yule log blazed on the hearth and the boar's head graced the board. There is some thing very attractive about all this, in theory, but I do not fancy the reality where the rushes on the floor caught the refuse for the rats and dogs to eat, even while the dinner *was going on. And, while I would not go back to this in its entirety, I would be glad to see some of its simplicity infused into our social life of today with its artificiality and its petty jealousies and bickerings.—Boston Home Journal. A familiar Experience. You lose things—things that you have put away so very carefully that you can not track them yourself. You search and search until you could cheerfully howl, so deep is your despair. It’s of no use. They are nowhere. You get more like them if you can, or make some misera ble substitute do, or suffer for want of them. And then some time you come across them, put away, oh, so neatly, so wisely, where no one, not even you, wonld ever think of looking.—Boston Commonwealth. The California Orange Crop. The orange market of southern Cali fornia is in a peculiar condition. The largest crop on record is on the trees ; awaiting shipment, amounting probably ; to 6,500 carloads, against 2,800 last year and 4,000 for the previous season. Only j a few hundred carloads have been shipped ! so far. It has been reported that there is a 1 combine among southern California orange growers to hold their crop for $3 a box. This is only true to a limited ex tent. There is no general combination among growers. Local unions have been formed in several localities to maintain prices and facilitate shipments, but these j only represent a portion of the crop and I do not work in unison. The most im portant of these unions is that of River side, which represents seven-eighths of the crop of that place, or about 1,700 boxes. The rest of the crop controlled by local organizations will probably bring up the aggregate so held to about 2,500 boxes, or less than half the total crop. Buyers are holding off, being unwill ing to consign while the eastern pur chasers are not inclined to risk buying. The weather in the east has been very cold, and there is still a large quantity of good Florida fruit to be shipped; hence there is at present a sort of dead lock. Local firms are offering for choic est Riverside navels $3 per box at the shipping point and lower, according to quality, and for ordinary San Gabriel valley navels $1.75 is about the best price obtainable, which does not satisfy the growers.—Cor. San Francisco Chron icle. Admission Tickets For the World’s Fair. For a week the bank note factories at Dalton, Mass., have been making pecu liarly distinctive paper that is to he used for tickets of admission to the World's fair. The first order, which was for 5,000.000 tickets, has been shipped to New York so that the American Bank Note company may have time for the elabo rate engraving on the ticket. It is ex pected that many will he sold as sou venirs. To guard against counterfeits it has been decided that between the sheets of paper of which the card is composed there shall be scattered planchets of tis sue paper. These planchets are of differ ent sizes, the largest as big as a pin head. The}’ are of three colors, blue, pink and salmon, the shades being plainly dis cernible through the thin paper on both sides. The planchets are not scattered all over the card, but simply in a row less than an inch wide across from top to bottom. The tissue cut in these little disks is expensive, and considerable will be saved by using them only in the cen ter of the ticket. The chief reason for placing them in this way is the increased difficulty in counterfeiting. The size of the tickets will be 24 by 44 inches. Mr. W. W. Astor In Englnml. What can have induced Mr. W. W Astor to buy the Liberal Pall Mall Ga zette in order to convert it into a Unionist organ? This seems to me to bo as strange as it would be for the Duke of Westminster or some such English magnate to buy up an antiadministra tion newspaper at Washington in order to change it into an administration or gan. What would the Americans say if this were done? Would there not be somewhat of an outcry and would it not be suggested to the duke that, if he wished to engage in politics, it might be well if he were to confine himself to those of his own country? If Mr. W. W. Astor intended to naturalize himself as an Englishman, I could understand the purchase. This, however, is improb able, for his property mainly consists of land and houses in New York, where no alien can hold real estate. — London Truth. A Substitute For Sleighing. 1 saw a good suggestion last week for the impecunious young man who wants to give his best beloved a sleigh ride without the necessity of braving the livery stable keeper for credit. A mes senger boy mounted on his bicycle was making very fair time towing a hand sled on which his best girl perched in perfect comfort and evident satisfaction. The arrangement lacks some of the ad vantages of the single cutter and the 2:30 road horse, but it is so cheap and handy that it deserves consideration. Picture0 of this device in the advertising pages of newspapers would do a good deal to boom the sale of the bicycle in the win ter montlis, when business naturally be comes a little slack.—Kate Field’s Wash ington. 1-biglaml Suggests a Dicker. England is the only power which has any substantial motive or any technical claim to oppose annexation of Hawaii by the states. We have treaty rights which the Union could not ignore. The Canadians are showing themselves some what touchy on the subject of the fate of the islands. But it will perhaps be found on consideration that, if the United States is really anxious to set up a pro tectorate, the best use to which we can put our rights will be to swop them for a thorough settlement of the endless fish ery difficulties.—Loudon Saturday Re view. Crape on the Door For a Marriage. Charles Simons is a proprietor of a millinery store on Reed street, and his only daughter was his chief assistant until Friday, when she married a man named Goldberg of Marion, Wis. The marriage so enraged Simons that he pur chased a crape rosette, which he nailed to the door of his store, and announced to all comers that his daughter was dead, lie is apparently beside himself with anger at the marriage. He threw his daughter's trunk and all her apparel into the street.—Milwaukee Cor. Chicago In ter Ocean. New York has had 5 secretaries of state, 6 of the treasury.
