In some of the northwestern cities like St. Paul, Minneapolis nnd Winnipeg, it is an every day sight to see a young Britisher land from the train, with ono eyeglass screwed into his face (in order that ho may not see more than ho can comprehend, �/mo ono has been unkind enough to say), a corduroy suit of blonse nnd knickerbockers, bright yellow leather gaiters buttoned up to tho knee, a fore and aft cap, two guns, that ho mny shoot nil the buffalo lie expects to find just outsido the town, a dog and about 500 pounds of baggage. Ho has come to leai ii fanning. He is a gentleman's son, accustomed to comparative luxury and case all bis life. Arrangements have been made for him by some English firm, of whom there are a good many in this business, lo do "chures" for his board, and to pay �100 down to "lenm farming"-that is, to master the mysteries of harnessing a horse, to milk a cow. to drive a sulky plow, to drive a seeder, to drive a mower, to drive a harvester and, possibly, to drive u bargain. As soon as ho has mastered tlie last accomplishment, he generally sees that ho hus been dnped, leaves his teacher and strikes out for himself. THEY WANT TO OO HOME. The coarse food of the farmer's table and the rough society of lus hired help, who get good wages, while lie gets nothing, generally disgust liim, howovcr, long before he reaches the stage of edi ,-cation last mentioned, and tho young man starts for the nearest town, hoping to find more congenial employment. Ho goes to the hotel, and by the time ho has discovered that thero is no demand for any class of unskilled labor, save on the farm, he is in debt to tho landlord, and great many cases brings up in the hotel kitchen as a waiter or dishwasher, or even a stable boy. One of tho peculiar things about this class of young fellows is the longing all of them have to go home again and their evident inability to gratify that wish, although most of them receive sums of money from their friends in the old country at regular intervals. The fact seems to be that they are not wanted at home. Their parents seem glad, or at least willing, to have their boys undergo considerable hardship, with dangers to morals and health, rather than to have them meet the inevitable evils of idleness in England. For tho prejudice against any form of trade or business outside the professions, is strong there yet, and many an English gentleman would rather have his boy washing dishes in America than standing behind a counter in England. Of course it is not heralded from the housetops that dear Reginald is washing dishes America; oh, no, he is "ranching it in the west." "1 remember the case of two young lads," said a Dakota lawyer, "fresh from a famous boys' college in England. What struck me particnlorly when first I saw them was their cheerfulness and their boots. "Then- boots were amazing. The boys were short for their ages, 15 and 10, but the boots would have reached half way iliovo the knees of the tallest man in tho settlement, and were big in the feet in proportion. Walking was difficult in them. The boys almost seemed to take one step up into the toes first, and then pull the rest of the boots along after them at tho second stride. In answer to questions about the reason for such roominess, they replied that they had been led to believe that the cold was so intense in tho northwest that it was customary for people lo wear all the socks they had ut the same time. Boots' we christened the boys, indiscriminately. 'Then they produced their shoes from their trunks. Splendid shoes they were, but the heels were shod with greut plates of iron, and the soles were full of brass pegs wi th protruding heads as big as peas. The shoes must have weighed five pounds' each. 'Extra hob nailed,' the lads called them, and useful they would bo no doubt on the stony, flinty English roads and holds, but on the soft loamy prairie lands of the west, where you could not find one stone to throw at a bird in a ten acre lot, they srere about, as retarding to locomotion as tho suction boots of those urtisls' who walk on the ceiling. "Well, they went out to the 'teacher' who had secured them and I lost sight of them for a while. Ono day I came across such a thin, sorry, disgusted little chap, sitting on the back steps of a hotel, that 1 barely recognized him as one of the rosy, smiling boys I had laughed at a few months before. " 'What's tho matter, old man?' I said, what aro you doing here? " 'Making the beds and washing the dishes,' he replied sorrowfully.   'I'm boots" now with a vengeance,' he added, with a flickering smile. " 'Didn't they treat you welly I asked, " 'Oh, they did all they agreed to do, he answered; 'but it was not what we expected, you know.  I wish I hud my hundred pounds back.' " 'Where's your brother, and what's ho doing?' *' 'Cooking for a lot of English fellows that have a camp out at tho Forks.' " "Has he, too, thrown over liis teacher and his "comfortable home, with plain but substantial fare," us the circular said?" I asked. " ' Yea,' said the lad, '1 think he'd like lo go back, though, but the farmer will not have him. Wo broke the contract and left him, and I suppose he can refuse to renew it. Ho has our money safe, do you sce'r' "I saw, but what could I  k.rumV Im-rciltble Mennuou. Down in Washington county I heard of nn old fellow, a venerable octogenarian, who had seen his molars depart one by I one, while his canines and incisors followed in mournful procession, until old age found htm bereft of nil his early assistants in mnsticution. Awhile ago he visited a dentist iu a neighboring town mid announced that ho hud concluded to invest in a set of false teetH, and at once began to discuss tho financial points involved. During the discussion he explained why ho was compelled at this late hour to ninko such a venture. "Yer see," said the old man, "wobbling" his toothless jaws, "I ben a-ncedm' sutliin' o' the kind fer a long spell buck, but brother Ephrum, who wins inoro'n ten year older'n I be, he hud a bran new pa'r, reg'lar double deckers they war, 'u'� Ephrum war a-ailin' and likely wouldn't last long, I jest waited erlong for his'n, 'n' I ben waitin' fur them teeth," disgustedly, "seneo 'way back in tho seventies, tell abaont a month ago"-here his voice took ounsarcastic tone-"Ephruin he jest couldn't stick it aout no longer, 'n' he up 'n* died. But, dem it"-indignantly-"ef ho didn't ensist afore he left that them thur teeth should lie buried along with him!-ensisted on it, V whnfi more he jest shct his mouth so taraul solid no mortal man could ha' got 'em V died so!"-Lewiston Journal. Cincinnati Dullitlnf Asuoclatlout. The building association interest this vicinity is at this time more than ever before in need of a central exchange. Many of the savings societies in Hamilton county have necunmlatiolii of money not invested. These idle accumulations vary in amounts from f 1,000 to �!0,000. Of the 840 building associations in this vicinity probably fifty have nt all times idle capital, and a fair average of the amount on liand would be |S,000 for each one, or $100,000 in all which nt 0 per cent, per annum would be $0,000 actual lnsp annually to the building association fraternity by reason of non-invested funds. If there existed au exchange supported by all the associations in this vicinity then the idle capital of the one could be diverted to excess needs of tho other, nnd the profit on tho loan would remain in the building association circle and not go outside to the banks. The cost of supporting such an exchange, including rent, clerk hire, gas, fuel, etc., would not exceed (3,000 a year, or less than $10 for each association, and would accomplish the saving of $4,000 a year for the fraternity. A movement looking forward to the establishment of the central exchange has begun, -Cincinnati Enquirer. A Hove l.uuc-heon. A well known society woman has de-eloped a really new idea in the way ot dove luncheon." It has long been do clared by tho lady's circle of friends that she closely resembles the portraits of Marie Antoinette, and taking this us u suggestion she entertained last week a dozen friends at what she called a Louis Seize luncheon. The hostess herself was dressed in a gown that faithfully copied is of the unfortunate queen's, and each of the guests had chosen some other famous woman of that period of famous women, whom she personated in costume and coiffure. Th* adorning of tho table and the service of the luncheon was made as consonant as possible with the rest of the affair, and the topic chosen for conversation was the women of the French revohition.~-New York Evening Snn.

Venice and Copenhagen possess the two finest equestrian statnes in the world. Critics declare the Leo monument equal if not superior to any equestrian work at Paris. It is forty feet high, forty-one feet across nnd weighs eight tons, and is the result of four years' careful study. The horse alone was a year's labor. The statue was cast in eight sections aud was six months in the foundry. The pedestal is twenty-one feet high, making tho total height sixty-one feet. It is of granite, almost white as marble; four columns of polished blue granite are on either side. Tho base is designed for the statues of six generals who served with Lee. Tho three selected at present are Stonewall Jackson, J. E. B. Stuart and A. P. Hill. Gen. Lee sits erect upon liis favored, war horse, Traveler. His cavalry boots touch tho stirrups lightly, after the manner of southern horsemen. He has just come upon tho field of Gettysburg. His orders havo been miscarried. Horse and rider seem tc feel the stab of an unloyal hand. "Had the committee accepted my llrst design," said tho sculptor to me, "it would have been one of the most original if not the sublimest statue in the world. I wished to represent Gen. Lee as ho passed among bis fallen troops on tho field of Gettysburg-the horse rearing, the dying stretching for a last affectionate glance of their leader. I do not know of another incident in history in which a defeated general was greeted with such affection and confidence in the moment of disaster and defeat. It is sublime." The Confederate troops moved noiselessly exceptiug their yell," explained Col. C. P. E. Burguyn. civil engineer and delegate sent by Virginia to receive the statue. "Tho committee thought tho design too theatrical. They wero business men, not artists." "Ah!" said the sculptor, thoughtfully, "they were urtists-trno artists. They did not wish to revive the past." M. Antonin Mercie is in the prime of life. A typical Frenchman, of medium height, he has churmingly cordiol manners, with the simplicity inseparable from childhood and genins. He was born at Toulouse, and liis parents expected him to follow commerce. "What turned yon to art'r" I'asked him. "Laziness," was tho naive reply. His early life was not without hardship, but success soon crowned it. He came to Paris at twenty and at twenty-three wn-awarded the prize Of tho French school at Rome. "David" was his first important work. His second greatest effort is the "Gloria Vietus" ut tho last exposition. Paris has many of his works. The tomb of Louis XVIII, at St. Denis, is proba-bly tho best known. Mercie is the pupil of the great Fftl-guiere. Together PRINTING Book Making -AMD- Business, ^ SPECIALTIES III THE BOOK DEPHOT.
