FRENCH JOURNALS. .
Shares or Several Bought and Sold Dally
on the Stock Exchange.
Most of the French journals havra
salle dc depeches , where bulletins are
displayed and a museum of relics of the
paper is kept French journalism is
much more personal in regard to its literary - •
erary composition thnn that of England '
or America. A largo proportion of the
articles are oigned with the names of j
the writers ; even when the work is
more or less of a routine nature , such
as the sporting or law departments of
the paper. On the other hand , the own
ership of newspapers is less frequently
lodged'in single hands than is the case
in America. Very many of the French
papers are owned by companies or asso
ciations , while the stock of several of
the best known , such as The Figaro and
Petit Journal , is bought and sold daily
on the Stock Exchange , the quotations
appearing as regularly as those of rail
way shares or Government bonds.
The circulation of all but a very few
of the Paris papers varies enormously ,
according to the contents. If a paper
contains a striking article , well adver
tised previously , or if its feuilleton , con
tinued story or memoirs , which most of
the French journals consider an essen
tial part of their daily issue , is by some
well known author , the circulation will
runup 50,000 , or 100,000 in a week
and drop again as soon as the special
feature is discontinued. When Lc Jour
began publishing M. Henri Eochefort's
memoirs , its circulation went up five
fold , although the price , of the paper
had been doubled in order to make hay
while the sun shone.
The French press is much more con
centrated in the capital than that of
other European countries. In Germany ,
for instance , it is not the press of Berlin
that has the largest circulation or the
greatest influence. In this , as in many
other matters , however , the French
press only bears out the saying that
"Paris is France. " Chautauquan.
NEW PUNCTUATION MARK.
A Badly Needed Invention Suggested by
the Caustic Copy Header.
"I shall lie famous. I have an idea
that will send my name thundering
down through the ages , " remarked the
"Humph ! " replied the humorist. "It
will be the first idea you have ever had.
You spend most of your time destroying
the good ideas of others. "
"Well , that may be , although you
never have any idea to destroy , seeing
that you get these which you have from
Joe Miller's jokebook and the old al
"Oh , well , let's have your idea ! "
"To tell the truth , it was suggested
to mo by you. "
"Ah } I thought as much , and yet you
"Don'tTe in too big a hurry. You
haven't heard my idea. "
"What is it ? "
"I have invented a punctuation
mark for humor. It is intended to show
the reader where to laugh. In olden
times , you know , the point of the joke
used to ber printed in italics. Nowadays
there is no way to show the point , and ,
as many of the jokes , such as yours ,
have no point , it is impossible to print
the point in' italics. Now , I suggest that
a punctuation mark be placed at the be
ginning and at the end of everything
supposed to be funny , so that the reader
may be prepared to laugh when he be
gins to read and know when he has
reached the point and it is time to
laugh. I would suggest that the mark
be two little squares placed above the
line , and I shall call it by my name.
What do you think of that for an idea ?
It was suggested by your stuff , as I told
But the humorist had given the copy
reader a look of scorn and had vanished.
Rabbits That Climb.
A correspondent writes to the London
Field that while he was hunting rabbits
with ferrets in January he found rabbits
on three occasions in willow trees which
overhung the water of a mill stream.
The miller said that it was not an un
usual circumstance. Some months ago
The Field told of other rabbits which
had been shot , like raccoons or opossums
sums , out of trees in England. In re
cent years cases of rabbits in trees have
been reported with increasing frequency.
From Australia has come the most re
markable story of rabbits as climbers.
The only way in which rabbits could be
kept out of certain tracts of land in
Australia was-by the building of wire
fences about them , the fences having
meshes so small that the beasts could
not crawl through and being so high
that they could not jump over. The rab
bits have clawed at the wires until their
nails gradually have become hooked.
Some of the rabbits learned to scale the
fences , and then great additional ex
pense was necessary , for the 'top of the
fence had to be bent over like a J up
side down , with the hook out , so that
the rodents could not get over the top.
Australian rabbits are said to be learn
ing to climb trees for the leaves.
He Had Fallen Off.
Patrick was a new man in the light
horse regiment , but his cheerfulness and
witty replies had already established
him as a favorite. He had one draw
back , however , and that was his awk
wardness when on a horse's back. Nat
urally his position required the opposite
of this , and Patrick worked hard and
faithfully to acquire the ease and natu
ralness of his comrades when riding. He
congratulated himself that this was at
last accomplished. But one day when
on parade his horse shied and threw him
with considerable force. When he re
gained consciousness , he found that his '
arm had been broken with the fall. With
his usual characteristic good humor the
poor fellow smiled in his pain as he said :
"Well , well , it's too bad. I thought
I had improved in my riding a great '
deal , but instead I have fallen off. "

HOW TO FIND OUT.
Fill a bottle or common glass with urine and
let it stand twenty-four lionrs ; a sediment or
settling ; indicates an unhealthy condition of the
kidneys. When urine stains linen it is posi
tive evidence of kidney trouble. Too frequent
desire to urinate or pain in the back is also
convincing ; proof that the kidneys and bladder
are out of order.
order.WHAT TO DO.
There is comfort in the knowledge so often
expressed , that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root , the
great kidney remedy , fulfils every wish in re
lieving pain in the back , kindeys , liver , blad
der and every part of the urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold urine and scalding
pain in passing it , or bad effects following use
of liquor , wine or beer , and overcomes that
unpleasant necessity of being compelled to
get up many times during the night to urinate.
The mild and the extraordinary effect of
Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands the
highest for its wonderful cures of the most
distressing cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best. Sold by druggists.pnce
fifty cents and one dollar. You may have a
sample bottle and pamphlet both sent free by
mail. Mention The Tribune and send your
address to Dr. Kilmer & Co. , Binghamton , N.
Y. The proprietor of this paper guarantees
the genuineness of this offer. April 2-1 yr.
