Nr.w YOIIK , July 4. Tbo anniversary of
American independence was elaborately celo-
liratca by the Tammany society in the Tam
many wigwam this niornlng. The
urcat hall was crowded with people -
plo and the private boxes were occu
pied with ladles. Among the prominent
men present to deliver addresses were Con
gressman Bryan of Nobrasna , and Owen
Kirk of Illinois. The Interior was beautifully
decorated with flags , coats-of-arms of differ
ent states and lloral designs. Grand Sachem
Thomas Oilroy delivered tbo address of wel
come , and the Declaration of Independence )
The secretary then read letters of regret
from prominent democrats. Orovor Cleve
land wrote :
"No man. nor woman , nor child should
forget or outgrow the aontimonts rotating to
the observance of tbo fourth day of July.
Ilcciui3o there are Influences and tendencies
abroad which tend to tha neglect of this an
niversary , the valuable and patriotic effort
of Tammany to rcscuo it from indifference
ought to bo universally applauded. I

Governor Holes of lown wrote : "Occupy

The OIIU of I.cKiitrcH to I'ulillo Institu
The will of Sidney Dillon was offered
for probate in Now York a few days
ago. It provides that all his estate
shall bo divided into two parts , the first
to consist of two-thirds of the value of
the estate , and the second one-third the
value. The first part IB to bo divided
equally among Mrs. .lulla D. lUploy
and Mrs. Cora D. WyekolT , the two
daughters , aim Sidney Dillon Hlploy
nnd Harry Dillon Hlpley , the two
oldest grandsons of the testator. One-
half of the share of each is to bo paid
over , nnd one-half is to bo hold in
trust for the legatee. Of the Bocond
part one-third each of the throe
olhoi1 grandchildren of the testator , Ju
lian , Ashton Uiploy , LouiH Arthur Rip-
ley and Florence Dillon WyekolT , is to
receive $100,000. ono-lialf to bo paid

The will , which was made In 1885 ,
contained a charitable bequest of $160-
000. This was revoked , but during Mr.
Dillon's last sickness ho was prop.iring
to alter his will with a view of providing
for certain charities. The legatees have
united in yreoing to sot aside $100,000
for religious , charitable and educational
purposes , in order to carry out Mr.
Dillon's Intention. The most important.
of these gifts will bo $25,000 to the
Young Men's Christian association for
employes on the Union Pacific railway ,
and $25,000 to Amherst college. The
estate has been valued nt 810,000,000.

It is barely fifty years since this con

States , says Kate Field's Washington.
The stamp is a little older in Knglann.
When first introduced postage stamps
were sold in solid sheets. Of course a
great many wore wasted in the elTort to
tear them apart when there were no
perforations. Indeed , the loss and in

ernment offered a liberal reward for a

The number of postage stamns used in
a year is bomothing enormous. For
instance , the ordinary postal revenue
for the year ending Juno SO , 1891 , ex
clusive of the money order business ,
was $03,00j,2j.87. : ) Of this S41,432,120.5J
came from letter postage. The bulk of
this is , of course , in 2-cont stamps , and
it is safe to put the whole number of this
denomination used at more than two
billions per annum.
ThoiBsuingof postage stamps , stamped
envelopes and newspaper wrappers all
belong to ono of the divisions under the
care of the third assistant postmaster
general. There is another division of
the same bureau which looks after
registered letters and still another
which attends to the system for the
special delivery of lettciu The classifi
cation of mail matter belongs to this
bureau and it is with the third assistant
postmaster general or his elorks that
newspapers and periodicals have to
quarrel over their rights to olllcial entry
as second class matter.
A lu cent special delivery stamp on a
letter is supposed to keep it in constant
motion from the time the letter is deposited - -
posited in the main or branch postofllco
until it is delivered to the addressee.
Thorp is liable to bo a little delay in the
starting of n letter when it is deposited
in a letter box instead of a postofllco ,
but everything must make way for spe
cial delivery letters after they once got
into the vicinity of a mail bag. The
clerk hustles them out with the llrst
mail leaving the ofllco nnd puts
them on the ojtsido of pack
ages , or in n bundle by
themselves , so that the next oflicinl
can see them nt once. If the special
delivery stamp is put on a package of
second , third or fourth class matter it
has to be treated in a lirst-clnss manner
that is , It gou into n pouch instead of a
sack , and is pushed through just as nip-
idly as a letter bearing the sumo stamp.
Lust year there were over two and a
half millions of pieces soul by bpocial
delivery , and it is interesting to note
that the average time consumed in the

hall of Genoa is a mosaic portrait of the

of Columbus , and perhaps we have
created one. If the duke of Voragun Is

likely to causa the price to drop 'way below

Among the travelers who arrived
from the Orient by a recent steamer ,
says the San Francisco Examiner , was
one Clark Kussoll , u namesake but no
relative of the famous novelist of the
sea. Mr. Russell , made rich by the pru
dent care and acquisitiveness of his
father , a manufacturer of cutlery at
Sholllold , has spoilt the last four years
in wandering about the continent of
Asia picking up odds and ends , scienti
fic and curious , which it is his intention
to embody in u book , lie lists been
through Thibet , the dominions of the
great Lama , traversed Manchuria and
Mongolia , tlio entra-mural possessions
of China , made excursions into the un
frequented wilds of Siberia , nnd latterly
has boon touring the southern regions
of the continent , Cochin-Chlna , Tonkin
and Slum. Ho paused for a time at
Bangkok , the capital of the kingdom of
Shim , and picked up much interesting
information thero. There is ono story
that ho tolls that will especially com
mend Itself to the Beckers after the
strange and the novel.
"I was surprifica , " ho said at the
Palace the other day , "at the size and appearance -
pearanco of Bangkok. It is the Venice
of the east. Tlio city lies on both sides
of the river Monatn. About twenty
miles from the east and on each side ,
branching out from the stream , are a
great number of canals , upon which the
dwellings and public buildings are built.
The houses , constructed of wood as in
most eastern cities , stands upon piles ,
and the wash of the waters around these
supports in night rnaltcs a most unique
and pleasurable sensation. It is as
though you were borne along on a gently
moving river , for the city is as silent as
n necropolis ana there Are no sounds , no
clanging of street car bolls , no hideous
shouting of Salvation hymns , to break
the spell. Further down tlio river you
see tier upon tier of floating botibcs
moored to the bank , in which a largo
part of the population of 300,000 dwell.
"But that part of Bangkok which in
terests the tourists most ia the section
sot apart for the king. The palace Is
enclosed in high white walls which are
n mile in circumlorencc. Within them
nro contained temples , public ofllcos ,
seraglios , stables for the biicrcd ele
phant , accommodations for 1,000 troops ,
cavalry , artillery , war elephants , an ar
senal and a theater. The palace of the
king is equipped in true oriental mag
nificence. Hunginas of the costliest
tapestry and mats made of woven silver
catch the eye at every turn. His pres
ent majesty a luxurious follow had
lately erected a structure , of which the
like docs not exist in the world. In
summer Bangkok is a steaming sweat
room , and any contrivance to escape
from the heat is eagerly entertained.
"Some Chinesn architect suggested to
the king that ho have erected a glass
pavilion in the great reservoir tliat oc
cupies part of the palace grounds , lie
drew the plans and the scheme captured
the fancy of the king. The pavilion is
built entirely of glass walls , floor , coil
ing and all joined by an indissoluble
cement. The plates or slabs o ? dill'or-
cnt sorts and thicknesses and of
vat legated colors were obtained in
Franco , whither an agent had been sent
for the purpose. When put together
they formed tlio prettiest and most
unique structure that imagination can
picture. The Chinese architect , true
to the genius of his race , had orna
mented it with quaint turrets and gables
that made it sooiu a toy house.
"By mechanical means it was so ar
ranged that , when empty , the pavilion
would rise to the surface of the minia
ture hike. At a little distance it re
sembles nothing so much as a pretty
conservatory , such as might bo been in
the Jtirdin dcs Plants at Paris or in the
gardens at London. Happening along
a little later you might wonder what
had become of the pavilion. An atten
dant would toll you that the king was
taking recreation with his harem at the
bottom of the lake and point to tlio
spireliko ventilators , rising nbovo tlio
level of the placid surface ns evidence
cf the truth of what ho tolls you.
"By ono door only can the king enter ,
and this closes hermetically after him.
At once the edifice begins to sink , the
valves in the tall pipes in the roof open
and in a few minutes it is resting
beneath the placid waters. There lii
his cool and perfectly dry habitation ,
with tlio softened light trickling
through the panes of colored and fig
ured glass , the king spends the hot
summer days singing , smoking , eating
anil drinking , with his Imrem and
favorites about him. "

And Christmas , up to ten or a dozen years ago.were recognized among
business men , as sort of dividing lines between the dull and busy sea
sons. "After the Fourth" seemed to bs the time for the merchant of
that period to get "two kinds of bait" and go "fishin. ' " Times have
changed. Progressive merchants ( that's us ) , have discovered the fact
that men will buy goods in July as well as in any other month , if the
inducements held out ai ° e strong enough. Our recent great special
sales sales that have crowded our store fr.om basement to roof sales
that have not only been "town talk" in every corner of our city--but
which have been heard of in every city and town and hunTlet in the
whole west have left our stock oCsuits in a somewhat demoralized con
dition. Here we have left half a dozen suits at eighteen dollars forty at
fourteen dollars twenty at twelve-fifty maybe a dozen lots of from
ten to twenty-five each at fifteen dollars several lots at thirteen-fifty
a few lots at seventeen dollars and so on making in all an aggregate
of several hundred'
These suits are in sacks and frocks , they are in all wool and sill <
and wool cassimeres and worsteds ; some are bound some are
not bound ; some are dark some are medium some are light ; there
are plain colors , plaids , stripes checks ; in fact , there is a better line
of suits to .select from than most houses can show you at from twelve
-fifty to twenty dollars. We have sorted all these odd suits into two
grand and distinct lots , placed them on separate tables and from now
until Saturday night , you can choose as you like from the two lots at
The inducements arc strong -nicht ?

The bill presented to the estate was
for thrco days' testimony euch at $200 n
day , making the total amount 81,200.
"I don't think I can allow that
amount , " observed the court , as the
figures loomed up from the desk.
"It is the regular charge fixed by our
association , " protested Dr Browor.
"I can't help that. I deem the bill
oxorbinto and "
"But " interrupted the doctor.
"No , sir ; I can't do it. 1 have been n
professional man all my life and such n
fco is entirely wrong. How long did
you actually testify , Doctor ? "
"Well , the actual testimony only
lasted a few hoti'-s , but "
"Nevermind that. I can't allow you
$200 a day for sitting around listening to
other tesiiniuny. 1 will allow you just
S200 each for the entire timo. "

Thousands of people have no choice
whatever nboqt their hour of rising In
Lho morning , says Harper's Ba/.uar.
Later or earlier , that hour is fixed for
them by the requirements of the olllcc ,
Llie bhop or the class-room ; by the time
table of the railroad ; by thu arbitration
of their employers or the necessities of
their employees. But in the cases mani
fold were personal liberty is enjoyed , it
should not bo thoughtlessly restricted
simply because of the domestic traditiou
that early rihing deserves praise nnd late
rising blame. Bicakfast may often bo a
movable feast without materially dis
turbing the routine of an orderly house
keeping day. Invalids , mothers whoo
rest has been broken by teething babies
and , above all , rapidly growing chil
dren , should have Iheir sleep out. Na
ture demands this , and violence is done
to her when sleepy people are rudely
aroused from their buds. Early to bed
is the single safe proscription to insure
early to riso.
