The Paris correspondent of Ixindon
Truth tell an Interesting tory of the
manner In which the Russian government
tested the efficiency of the French de
teotlve police when the czar was about to
visit Paris. The chief of the Russian po
lice went secretly to the French capital,
' with orders to lie quietly by In a hotel and
only to report himself at the embassy
after a stay of a week. Rut ha had not
been three hours In Paris before the pre
fect of police learned of his arrival from a
French detective. At St. Petersburg they
thought this a sailsfactory result, and the
Imperial pair ventured to go to Paris and
drive down the Champa Klysees without
cavalry around their carriage. A similar
test applied In Rome had different conse
quences. The head of the Russian police
remained there for a whole week without
tils arrival being suspected. On the even
ing of the sixth day he called on Count
Nelldoff to report himself, to the great
astonishment of that ambassador. They
both agreed thut If the Roman police had
not scented out the head of the greatest
police force In the world, they could not
be depended upon to know much about the
going on of anarchists and nihilist. This
I alleged to be the true reason why the
car declined to trust himself in the king
or Italy's dominions.
Commenting upon the republican victories
in the recent municipal election In Spain,
a, corresponuent of the London Times
writing from Maori.!, points out that last

Th conservative government had six
month In which to construct its dikes, but,
nevertheless, the republican victory sur
passes even the dreams of the republicans

HO.000 republican votes were cast. Th great
towns Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Se

Catalonia la almost entirely republican.

easily be revealed. Although the country
ha declared Itself republican, it doe not
desire a change of system. The domonstra

Fate of a Coaeera that Did Hot "Leave
Well Baeaab Moae."
Chicago Tribune. ,
First of all there was the George A.
Fuller company of Illinois. It was a
nund, money-making concern. What
money It made It earned by 'putting up
buildings and not by floating; stock. But
that kind of money did not "come easy
enough," and o th Illinois company
turned Itself Into the George A. Fuller
Construction Company of New Jersey,
with a capital of $15,000,009. The change
was marked by the Injection of IIO.POO.OOO
into the capital stock account for "tools
and good will." The tools were worth
about 1200,000, according to the company's
own figures. Therefore the "good will"
was put down a worth $9,800,000.
Fifteen month after the New Jersey
law enabled the Fuller company of Il
linois to swell Itself Into the Fuller Ccn
etructlon Company of New Jersey a still
more startling metamorphosis took place,
The construction 'company Joined with the
New York Realty corporation, and the
two together became known under Cue sin
gle sonorous name of the United States
Realty and Construction company, with a
capital of 6,000,000. Th Fuller Construc
tion company exchanged It $15,00,000 of
capital stock (two-third of which we

Izlng the future with a vengeance. Such
high financing could not last. The 'jndtr-

If he ha no need to be careful of hi

private means, finds it impoaslble to llv
in thi style. Ills thought and nearest
Uh 1 to get a private dwelling. Before
the army of the United States occupied
Manila it was posaibl to hire a mansion
of twenty or mor room for about two
hundred Mexican dollars a month. A
pretty Manila house, mighty comfortable
for three or four, wa rented for (DO and
160. But the resident of Manila never
heard of such prodigality a followed.
The Idea that an enliated man could tip
th driver of hi caramata 20 cent and
an officer hand over a half dollar opened
th eye of the people to the amount of
money we were always able to dispenae.
Th Englishmen and Germans. long resi
dent of Manila, cursed the advent of th

rightly, that they spoiled the native. Be

Junior officer to Uv In Manila much mor

What aorond lieutenant rould keep three

more cheaply by far than he could In the

a month In gold. He can keep two horse

unless he has several wine at hla board,
will not amount o over (40.
And there ' ia a lot of satisfaction In
awakening to find your machaco waiting

been prepared. It is quite comfortable to
be able to summon your cochero to have

The western astronomer wne announce

the contrary, a delightful place to Inhabit,

would have been possible ten year ago.
That the sun Is the source of practically
all the light and heat we receive Is un
doubted, but the nature of these two forces
is not only a mystery to us, but the the
ories which have from time to time been
advanced concerning them have been found
untenable. Although we have Immeasur
ably increased our knowledge conoernlng
the universes and soma of it law In th
last four centuries, we are not much nearer
any appreciation of the causes underlying
The Ignorant talk glibly about the "sub
tle ether," gravitation, light, heat and
electricity, but the wisest admit that
mighty little can be positively asserted
about any of them aside fcom obrvd
phenomena. No reasonable explanation
has ever been given that explain the law
of gravitation, which alone of all tho in

No one can explain how the ray of tha

Very plauxlble theories have been ad

The atomic theory was used for decades
to explain many things, but since thut has
been destroyed or made doubtful through
the discoveries attendant up in the Hertslan
waves and the emanation of Ions, 'scientists
are at sea where one they felt secure.
Radium exhibits phenomena that are thus
far inexplicable, and It Is probable that th
western astronomer has arranged hi theory
of an JnhubltaMe sun largely becaune of
these recent discoveries, which have done
much more to destroy former views than
to construct new ones. He thinks that the

and thut licut and light ar mer effects

but it mean little. It doe not dispose of
