Her official duties are naturally very;
onerous, and involve, a great deal of

"During the World's Fair in Chi-,

A Lawyer's MeaaoraadBia Book.
"The Green Bag" says that It oc

shortly before his death that it would
be a good idea to purchase a memor

can compare notes from day to day,"
he. said, "find out how much I spend,
and so learn to regulate my expendi
ture here and 'there." So the book
was bought After the great lawyer's
death his executors, while going over
his effects, came across the book. In
terested to know how far successful
McAllister had been in "regulating his
expenditures," they opened the book to
find this, the sole item contained
therein: "To one memorandum book,

Volunteers in the late Spanish war
are not apt to have their pension
claims adjusted for some time to come.
It is stated that the pension bureau
will not be in any hurry to pass upon
their applications, because 'pensions
for young men are apt to make them
lazy." At least this is the reason
given- for the bureau's delay in ad
justing these cases by an attache of
the bureau, who said:
"They are just beginning to come
in. I suppose they will come in rap
idly soon, but it is too early for them
yet We are not pushing the Spanish
war claims very fast. Most of the
applicants are 'young men, and they
do not need the pension very badly.
Of course, they will get their pensions
from the day their applications were
filed, but we are in no hurry to grant
them. It is a feeling at the pension
bureau that it is not a good thing
for the young men to draw pensions.
It makes them lazy, and it is not good
for them morally."
Regarding the' number of applica
tions being made, the attache said:
"The bureau has already on file 30.
000 applications, and they are still
coming in. Over 50 per cent of the
members of the District of 'Columbia
regiment have filed applications for
"How many of these men were
wounded?" was asked.
"Not one." he replied, "as far as I
know. Most of them claim they have
been permanently injured by con
tracting fever or other diseases In
"About what will be the aggregate
sum paid out annually for these 30,000
"I should say that not more than
50 per cent of the applications will
be acted on favorably. But about 15,
000 men will get pensions, and they
will average about $150 a year each,
or, say, $2,250,000 for all of them."
"Do you think that $2,250,000 annu
ally will cover the. Spanish war pen
sions?" "No," he said. "Experience has
shown that the pension list grows for
a number of years after the close of
the war. But lots of men who have
applied for pensions are young men
who have nothing whatever the matter
with them. The examinations of our
surgeons plainly show that"
The Fearless Coward.
Gen. Henry Kyd Douglas was chief
of staff under Stonewall Jackson and
learned the art of war from that great
general. He was called one of the most
fearless and dashing, riders In 'the
whole southern army. Among the stor
ies he tells of his army experience Is
that of the bravest man he ever knew.
He saw a young fellow start to run,
then halt and go forward marching
into what seemed to be the very jaws
of death. He expected, as a matter
of course, that he would be killed and
gave no more thought to him until
after the battle. Riding over the field
he recognized the rash youth. He
asked him what had impelled him to
do such a brave thing. The reply,
after some hesitation, was as follows:
"Well, colonel, It was just this way:
I am the -worst coward on earth, and
I started to run, and I intended to
keep on running till I got home, but
all of a sudden the face of a little girl
rose before me, and when I saw her
eyes I knew I just had to fight, and
then I waded in and did my best"

French Service of SB Tears.
The first thing that distinguishes
the army of France from all others Is
its character of microcosm of the
whole nation, says Paul Bettelheim in
the Nineteenth Century. All classes
are represented, and every French
soldier may hope some day to wield
the marshal's baton which he carries
in his knapsack. France is the only
European country which arms ajl Its
children without distinction, and even
those who choose the army as a ca
reer, and succeed in entering the mili
tary colleges, are bound to enlist for
a period of three years. In accord
ance with the last French army law,
passed in 1889, every Frenchman
serves for twenty-five years. He' en
ters the army at "twenty ae, remains
three years with the colors, and at
twenty-four Joins the first reserve,
where he remains tea years, during
which he is called .out for two train
ings of 'twenty-eight days each. At
thirty-four he enters the territorial
army, where he remains six years, be
ing called out once for a period of
thirteen days. The last six years are
spent with the territorial reserve, a
force specially intended for the de
fense of the country itself.

Cats la Cold Storage.
The effect of cold upon the capillary
properties of certain animals was
strikingly illustrated in .New York
some time ago, says an exchange. A
warehouse man in Jane street was an
noyed by the ravages of hordes ol
mice. He had little trouble in the
main part of his building, where a
couple of well-trained cats kept the
place tolerably free from the pests,
but in- the cold-storage portion the
mice held full sway. They nibbled
Into packages and boxes, and destroyed
such Quantities of fruits that heroic
measures were necessary. It seemed
rather a cruel experiment, but the
nuisance became so unbearable that
he decided at last to install a cat in
tho ld-8torage, warehouse. Provision
to a vertaia extent was made for her
comfort and she was left to her own
devices and the mice.
.Pussy seemed to flourish, notwith
standing the cold, and in the course of
about a week became the mother of a
fine litter of six kittens. After a time
three of the latter were removed, but
the old cat-and her remaining progeny
were left in their arctic quarters.
When allowed'out it was noticed that
she grew weak and listless. She tot
tered about in an aimless way, as
though all energy and interest in life
were lost As soon, however; as she
was returned to her old quarters she
recovered her vigor and became as
bright and active as usual. -A
curious feature was soon observed
In the kittens. They grew to an lra
mense size, their coats became long
and shaggy, and the fur much coarser
than that of an ordinary cat; it had
also a peculiar tendency to curl. The
feelers, or whiskers, too, grew to near
ly double tho lengtn, so that when
they were placed beside the members
of their own immediate family the
difference was so marked that they
might have easily passed for an en
tirely different breed.
The change took place within three
months, giving a curious example of
hew suddenly and completely nature
will adapt itself to the exigencies of
climate with the young.
Met Alwnys Cholera.
A swine breeder says that it Is hb:
observation that very many of the
sicknesses that are called hog cholera
are not that disease at all. As soon
as a man's hogs fall HI with any
trouble remotely resembling hog
cholera the dreaded disease is at once
reported to be present This man
says that In some cases he has observed-it
has been sickness due to
neglect The owner of the swine im
agined that the only protection the
hogs needed was a wire fence and
gave that to them and no more. As
a result, on cold nights the animals
piled up. Some of them would sleep
very comfortably ail night and In fact
would be altogether too warm. Then
In the morning the cold winds would
strike them and the animals, would
become chilled. The inevitable result
was pneumonia and many deaths. It
is certainly true that proper accom
modations for the swine will elimi
nate many cases of sickness that are
now charged up to hog cholera. No

As soon as the pigs are weaned giro
them a food that contains both muscle
forming and fat forming ingredients.
Remember that the food they have
been having np to that time was well

of the ration. But to this should be
added some form of peas, oats, clover,
middlings, bran, and the like, which
will start the pigs in the development
of a good frame and make it possible
for them to form flesh, that will later
be easily finished Into a valuable
