The Lover's Coat.
A tale of disaster toa young business
saan's pride and spring overcoat was
told at the Midland the other night by a
friend of the victim. This young man
is the personification of modesty, or hash
fulness, but he has by diligent and heroic
-efforts managed to lead a young lady of
Troost avenue to the understanding that
she is to be his. Twice a week or more
he has gone to her home to impress upon
her the existence and importance of the
contract. Sunday evening the young
man went to the home of the young wo
man to have a reiteration of the whole
matter, and the session was .not com
pleted until 10:30 p. m. by pa's watch.
As young ladies will sometimes do, this
one followed the receding form of the
senior partner of the "steady company"
organization to the front door, and after
' a series of dilatory motions an adjourn
ment was agreed upon. He stood on the
threshold to fasten his gloves, and she
swung the front door shut.
As the spring lock snapped the door
nipped the skirt of his; coat and held it
against his greatest strength. He was a
prisoner, and she who was to be his had
floated up the stairway unmindful that
he who was to be hers was impaled by
his coat tail on the veranda. This bash
ful young man had no inclination to
ring the bell, for pa would answer it and
he and the old gentleman were not on
particularly sociable terms. He knew
the only recourse, and he slid from the
coat and left it fanning in the wind
like a scarecrow in a corn field. Then
came the family's favorite young dog
and had a few rounds with the garment.
When the maid servant answered the
mflkmaa's bell Monday morning she be
held a wreck that caused her to arouse
the family with the information that a
tragedy had been enacted at the front
door. Pa's immediate examination and
diagnosis partially explained matter8,and
cost the young man, besides the loss of
his coat, a serious backset in that family.
All would liave been well asVough, aside
from the coat, had not the young man
forgotten to unload a pocket half full of
useless baseball pool tickets, which lay
spread out on the floor, and which he
should have torn up in disgust, as base
ball enthusiasts do, instead of harboring
them to bring ruin to his cause. Kansas
Chnacea of life.
These life insurance tables that show
the expectation, the average, the proba
bility of life are very curious and inter
esting. In a million births the males
outnumber the females 22,000, but the
girls don't die so fast, and by the time
they reach SO years the females begin to
outnumber the men and outlive them.
Nine thousand more women live to see
70 years than men, taking a million as
the basis. Two thousand more women
than men live to see 00. At 100 years
there are 79 men to 144 women. The
males start out most numerous, and this
is right, for it gives every girl a fair
chance for a lover and a husband and
it certainly was intended by a kind
Providence that she should have one.
She is entitled to one,and if I had my way
I would make every old bachelor marry
or support one.
If he wouldn't marry according to
nature, I would make him work for one.
In youth and middle age the males out
number the females, because it takes a
good number to defend the country and
do the fighting. But the Md women out
live the old men because Hey are needed
to Burse us and raise the grandchildren.
They have no had habits that shorten
life. They dp not drink nor chew to
bacco, nor smoke, nor expose themselves,
nor eat in a hurry. They take life calm
and serene. One hundred and twenty
five thousand children' are born every
day. What a squalling and rejoicing if
one could hear it all at once. Just think
of it 45,000,000 of brand new human
beings in a year. But they don't stay
long, not many of them. One-fourth of
them die before they are six years old.
While 125,000 are born in a day there
are 100,000 funerals going on at the same
tiane. WrtLt weeping and wailing, what
grief and sorrow if we could hear and

man family is mixed with great tribula

"The Silver King," with a well known
actor in the leading role, was played on
the east side some time in the beginning
of the season. My neighbor was a lad of
14 years, who answered to the name of
Rocksey. His-chum arrived at the close

Of Adelina Patti's latest acquisition,
the famous Chateau de Chenonceaux,
correspondent writes from Paris: "It
was hero that Francis I conversed with
Bayard on the happiness and glory of
France, and it was in the sitting room
that the monarch, the friend of letters,
received into his friendship Bousard and
Clement Marot; it was under these trees
that Marie Stuart and Anne Boleyn, then
brilliant in youth and beauty, walked in
then sweet dreams of happiness; it was
in this mysterious oratory that Claude of
France, daughter of Louis TTT, had so
often prayed. Here are also the subter
ranean passages where, at the time of
the conspiracy of Amboise, Diane of
Poictiers, concealed the chief of the
French nobles from the rage of Cather

beautiful banks of theKiver Cher that

politician. "I had a choice seat in a
Brooklyn elevated car a few nights ago.
A big crowd got in at one of the stations,
and I reluctantly surrendered my seat to
a healthy looking woman. I was dead
tired, and I hung on to a strap for sev
eral stations. Then the manwhocccu
Eied a seat next to the woman who had
enefited by my courtesy vacated his
place. Before I could wink, this woman,
for whose sake I had stood up in a jerky

who was evidently her son, into the va

Whenever a man comes into my shop
and asks for a clean shave, I wish that I
knew him well enough to.showhima
piece of his skin under a microscope
after he has had his shave and is feeling
his smooth face in a satisfied way while
the boy brushes him off. The hair of
the beard, in growing, raises little hills
of flesh around each root, and in shav
ing a man smoothly the razor cuts these
off, leaving the blood vessels exposed.
Under the microscope these Mtg
vessels can be distinctly seen, and the
flesh is seen to be entirely without the
covering of skin hh should have. The
natural result is that the close shaver is
always troubled with colds and affec
tions of the throat. Close shaving is so
much a western habit" that eastern bar
ben say they can tell a western man by

THE WORLD'S LARGE BELLS.
One The Wilaha m,M gi nana, Oth
ere Vet be Be ana mi At.
For 900 years after the Bishop of NoU
first set up hfa church bail fa Campania,
no attempts were made at casting large
ones. The bell presented to the church
at Orleans in the Eleventh century
weighed but 9,900 pounds, being then
the largest in the world. In the thir
teenth century bells of one, two and
three tons weight were not ran. In the
year 1400 the Jacqueline was cast at
Paris, the first of the great bells, weigh
ing, without the hammer, 15,000 pounds,
or seven and one half tons.
The rage for big balls soon became a
pension. Seventy-two yean later Paris
almost doubled her first effort in the big
bell line by casting one of twelve and a
half tons. The big bell of Rouen was
castinlSOL It weighed 99,994 pounds.
The largest bell in the world at the
present time, or that ever has been, is
the famous King of Bells, now at Mos
cow, Russia. It was cast in the year
1782, partly from fragments of another
great bell called the Giant, which was
broken in the early part of the Seven
teenth century by falling from its sup
port The Giant, although not as large as the
one of which its fragments now form a
part, was, nevertheless, no pigmy, as the
reader may infer upon being informed
that its weight was not leas than 286,000
bined strength of twenty-four men to
ring the Giant in his palmy days. The
King of Bells, like the Giant, has had the
misfortune to get broken. Flveyearsaf
teritwas cast, in 1737, during a great
fire, a heavy timber fell againsttheKing
and broke an immense three cornered
piece from its side, leaving a gap wide
enough to admit two menwalking abreast.
It is now on the ground and is said to have
been used about ten years ago as a place
of worship, the gap in the aide serving as
a means of ingress and egress. The wri
ter is aware that this sounds like a fairy
story, but surely there is nothing about
it in the least improbable, inasmuch as
the monster is 19 feet 9 inches in height
and 00 feet 9 inches around the mar
gin! The weight of this colossal folly has
been variously given, but never leas than
448,000 pounds! Think of it, 220 tons. By
some gross carelessness several-hundred
pounds of gold were said to have been
incorporated in its composition. Russia
leads the world in the matter of great
bells, Moscow also claiming second place
in the world's championship in its St
Ivan's, which weighs 127,890 pounds. It
is 18 inches in thickness, and 40 feet 9
inches in circumference.
China has several large bells, for, ac
cording to Father Le Compte, Pekin has
seven bells, each of which weighs 120,000
The great bell at Vienna, Austria,
weighs 40,200 pounds. The largest bell
in Bohemia, that at Oimutz, weighs ex
actly 40,000 pounds. "Big Ben," the
pride of London, would look like a farm
house dinner bell compared with the
monster of Moscow above mentioned,
weighing but fifteen tons. "Big Ben"
is not the largest bell of London, how
ever, St. Paul's cathedral having one
which weighs 88,470 pounds. The larg
est bell on that wonderful piece of archi
tecture, St Peter's cathedral at Rome,
weighs but 18,600 pounds; hardly two
thirds the sire of the largest bell in
America, that at MontreaLwhich weighs

Oaa of the most common caases of
dyspepsia is eantng heartily when the
system is tired and jaded. When ex
hausted by either mental or physical
work we are usually ravenously hungry,
and, of course, turn to food as the means
of restoration. The fact is seldom ap
preciated that the stomach shares fa the
depression caused by overwork, and
hence at such times is unable to perform
its ordinary duty. The food taken then
is but very slowly digested, and before
the process is completed fermentation
often takes place. If it does the conse
quence is that we are fa a worse state
than if the food had not been taken, for
the fermentation generates acids and
gas, which fa turn not only interfere
with digestion, but excite other disturb
aaces. In a very strong and healthy
person the ill effects of eating when the
system is much fatigued would not be ao
ipnrirari as fa one below the standard of
health. Very nervous individuals invari
ably suffer from the habit, and. if dehwjk
tated they are quite sure to grow' mere
so if it is persisted in. When very "tired
and hungry" it is always best to rest for
a time before eating, or to take some
such simple "pick up" as hot milk,
which should be slowly sipped. That is
very refreshing, indeed, and usually
meets the requirements quite as well as
an alcoholic stimulant Boston Herald.
There is fa the United States treasury
vault a brown wooden box, 8 inches
long, a foot wide and 18 inches deep;
which contains paper money of the nom
inal value of several hundred thousand
dollars. It is not worth a dollar. The
queer thing about it is the manner fa
which it was collected. Every bit of it
came from the dead letter office of the
postoffice department Some portion of
it is counterfeit, but the most of it was
genuine money many years ago. The
banks which issued it and the officers
who signed It are goneand forgotten. It
was all sent over to the treasury depart
ment several years ago, and Assistant
Treasurer Whelpley undertook to trace
up the various banks and get as much as
possible of it redeemed. Occasionally he
found descendants of some of these old
bank officials, themselves bankers, who
were willing to redeem someof the notes
for the sake of the signatures of their
fathers, and in this way he succeeded fa
getting several hundred dollars' worth of
it redeemed. A little of it is Confederate
money, but most of It is of bunks, state
and private, tliat went out of existence
many years ago. The oldest notes are
dated lack as far as 1812. American
A Considerate Governor.
There is a well authenticated old story
of a governor at one of our penal settle
ments, who, having fixed the date when
two of his convicts were to be hanged
for stealing, remembered, a few days be-'
fore the date named for the execution,
that he had an important social engage
ment for that same afternoon. He seat
for the men and explained to them, his
difficulty. "It cannot matter much to
you," said he, "whether you are hanged
on Tuesday or Wednesday next It is,
however, a matter of some moment to
me, and you would greatly oblige me if
you would consent to be hanged on Tues
day instead of Wednesday, as named in
The Gazette." The men were inclined
to stand on their rights, ao he told them
to think over the matter. They came to
him the next morning and agreedMhis
wish on certain terms, which he UpiX
accepted. The conditions were so much
rum and so much tobacco for each day
previous to their execution. A- few days
thus rendered happy were better to them
than one more day of dreary existence on
prison fare. Gen. Wolseley in The Fort

Durfagthe last thirty-three yearsaboat
a million and a half faunigraata have
reached the Argentine provfacea Of
these, 65.25 per cent are officially set
down as Italians. These figures, how
ever, do not sufficiently indicate their
real preponderance. fathefiiwtplace,a
fourth of the total Immigrants are not
classified except as entering the state by
way of Montevideo, where it is very
common for transshipments of pasiin.WB
from Europe to take place. Probably
if the Montevideo returns were analysed,
the percentage of Italians would work
oat as not less than 75 per cent of the
whole But there k another and still
more important fact to be borne fa mind.
The Italians in South America increase
with remarkable rapidity, the marriages
made between them and the natives
proving peculiarly fruitful a circum
stance not observed fa such a high de
gree among the other immigrants.
In 1885 the Italian chamber of com
merce of Buenos Ayres calculated that
the inhabitants of Italian birth and pa
rentage then residing in the republic
numbered over a million, while at the
present moment it is estimated that per
sons in whom Italian blood or Italian
race influence predominates, constitute
more than half the existing population,
now reckoned to be over three millions
and a half. Under such circumstances
can it be doubted that fa a very few
years the Italianization of the Valley of
the Plate will be complete?
The only fact that tells against such a
supposition is the newly adopted immi
gration policy of the Argentine govern
ment which has lately instructed its
agents fa Europe to do all fa their power
to attract immigration from among the
northern races. The danger of being
swamped by the most vigorous of the
Latin peoples k fully realised at Buenos
Ayres, and considerable numbers of Bel
gians, Hollanders, North Germans and
Swedes have already been attracted by
almost free ps sonata and generous grants
of land. We doubt, however, the con
tinued success of such a policy. Emi
gration flows with difficulty in new
channels. The Spectator.
When Dickens was remonstrated with
by hosts of London ladies for killing
"Little Paul Dombey," a critic said, "If
Dickens don't kill Paul, Paul will kill
Dickens.". The critic thought that if
Dickens had allowed Paul to grow up
into manhood, he, the author, would
have failed fa fitting him to hk sur
roundings, and thwat injured hk own
While Anthony Trollops was writing
"The Last Chronicle of Barest," he sur
prised a friend one day by saying to
him, "There's the end of Mrs. Proudie!"
"Why?" asked the friend.
Mr. Trollope replied that he was writ
ing one day fa the club, while a
group of young clergymen, gathered
around the fireplace, were talking about
the novel, which was appearing as a
seriaL He could not help overhearing
them, as they praised the work, but
agreed that Mrs. Proudie was becoming
an intolerable nuisance.
"What did you do?" asked the friend.
"Well," replied Trollope, "I hesitated
a good deal what to do; but I finally
made up my mind and went up to them
and explained that I couldn't help hear
ing what they were saying, and I added,
'I am very much obliged to you. I am
Anthony Trollope, and Fll go home and
kill Mrs. Proudie."
