The Inea's bridge is simply an arch of stratified shingle, cemented, together by deposits and pe trill cations from the hot springs which bubble up all over the neighboring bluff, the river Cuevas having eaten its way through tho shingle and falling in n cascade below. Tho bridge fa 00 feet lilKh, l:i0 wide, and varies from 30 to 30 feet in thickuess, aud seen from below the bridge it is found to be covered with yellowish stalactites, more curious than beautiful. In the sides of tho ravine, ta grot> toes, are bubbling hot springs of crystalline water, which even in winter has a temperature of !M dogs. Fahrenheit. This water contains sulphur, iron and other mineral properties, and is reputed to 1h* of great ellicHcy. Doubtless when the trausandine railway is opened for tralflc a company will buy up Puente del Inco, construct a fine batli tuttablishmcnt, and take in handsome prollts. h'venas it is, although the grottoes are merely enclosed with a few planks, and although neither at the springs nor at the inn is there tho smallest element of comfort or even decency, many people, come every year from Chili and the Argentine in order to lake the baths. Indeed a more miserable and desolate spot oonhl hardly be imagined. It is a stretch uf reddish brown grouud at the loot of the mountains, without a particle of vegetation on it. Toward the river the ground is covered with a yellow or white efflorescence that suggests coral formation, and innumerable little springs of hot water bubble up through cracks in the rock with a hissing sound, and trickle over green or yellow floating IIher toward the e-dge of the rock, where tho liber hangs over and gradually solidifies iuto stalactites, which in turn become converted into projecting ledges, on which other stalactites hang. The whole aspect of the ground Is uncanny; just as Pitnta de las Vucas, the inn ia surrounded with a zone of Illth, bones, bonus, offal and old tins. As for the inn itself, it is an agglomeration of one stoTy building* of pun dried bricks, mud roofs, floors of beaten earth nut even leveled, the walls whitewashed and the doors.painted bright green. In eucb. room are as many trestles and mattresses as it can hold, and iu the summer mouths the traveler mtint expect to sleep in mixed company, aud \ns prepared to dispense with washing and all other conveniences which decency, nut to say comfort, requires. I may say here that experienced travelers strenuously deprecate the use of soap and water during the journey across tho Audes, on the grouud that it renders the skin ten der and susceptible, not so much to the sun, but to the terrible dust and winds that you meet. If you wash, thuy say, your lips and nose will crack and your skin peel oil. For my part, 1 abstained from washing the whole t-imu I was in the mountains, not only because I felt cnnli deuce iu the experienced advice of other travelers, but ulna because, for want of water nnd utensils, I never had an opportunity of washing. On the other hand, 1 must say that I arrived at my journey's end without any hurt or disfigurement other than the loss of the skin on the tip of my nose.-Theodore Child iu Harper's Magazine.

Count von Muwni, of tho German legation at Washington, is a great amateur photographer, and never loses an opportunity to get views of Newport life. Being asked out to luncheon at one of the houses on the buy, where a lovely marine picture lies at your feet, he took his camera along. None of the ladies were down, and us he waited a momcut a passing yacht under .full sail caught his artistic eye. In a mo-tncut his head was under the little veil and the focus was being adjusted, when a stern female voice interrupted with: "Here, you i there! What are you at? Whom do you ' represent?" It was the lady of the house. Count von Mttinm had met only the daughter. He turned to her with n profound bow, "Madam, I haf de honor to rebresent de German empire."-San Francisco Argonaut. John and 3Inry Ana. In one of tho towns of Lincoln county there formerly lived a couple known to the surrounding couptry as John and Mary Ann. Did fortune smile upon their humble birth? It must have been a very sickly smile, if indeed fortune changed countenance at all, for Itfrequentlyhappeuedthat their 1 artier, like that of the venerable Mrs. Hubbard, was bare of anything of an osseous character even, to say nothing of bread and butter. One thiug, however, they always contrived to have on hand- tobacco, and two very black pipes, for Mary Ann shared her husband's joys as well as his sorrows. John would come home at night and interrogate his spouse as to the prospect for internal refreshment. "What yer got ter eat, Mary Ann?" "Nary a crumb, John.'* "Ain't ary 'taters?V "Nary a 'tater, John." Then the man of the house would heave a sigh of resignation uud say, "Wall, Mary Ann, full yer pij* V less hev a smoke." John's spiritual condition was a source of some solicitude to his wife, who one day persuaded him to accompany her to a prayer meeting that-wils to be held in a school hnusu some miles away. Arriving there John, the tunful soul, drew the line at entering the house, aud persisted in sitting down outside under one of the open windows, where he could enjoy a peaceful smoke and get the benefit of the meeting at the same time. The service-within was progressing uneventfully when Mary Ann arose and, after dwelling upon thv lost aud undone condition of her lord and master and the great distress which this condition caused her, asked the prayers of the audience for the uuregenerate Joliu, A hush fell upon the assembly, dtiriug which the head of the gentleman in question slowly appeared above the window sill. Resting his elbows upon this, and holding his pipe in an easy attitude between his thumb and forefinger, he cast a benevolent look upon those within which finally rested upon his wife, to whom he remarked in a deprecatory tone, "Speak for yerseif, Mary Ann, bnt don't say nothin* about Pse!"-Lewiaton Journal. ___ Ituttciilten That Bathe. I In The Victorian Nuturalist G. Lyell, Jr., of South Melbourne, notes that while walking along the edge of a mountain stream in Gippalaud he observed a peculiar habit of the Victorian butterfly, Popilio macleayuuus. One of these butterflies was seen to alight close to the water, Into which it backed till the whole of the body and the lower part of the hind wings were submerged, the two forelegs alone retaining their hold of the dryland. After remaining in this position for something like half a minute it flew away, apparently refreshed, "During the morning," says Mr. Lyell, "I noticed quite a number doing the same thing, lu oue Instance no less than four were seen to be within a space of not more than tluee yavdw, aud to mnke sure that 1 was not deceived 1 captured several as they rose from the water, and found in each ciise the body and lower edge of tho hind wings quite wet. While iu the water the fluttering of the wings, so noticeable at other times, was suspended, and so intent were the butterflies in the enjoyment of their cold both that they would hardly move, even when actually touched by the net. "Apparently the heat of the weather drove them to the water, as immediately they emerge*! they flew up again to the hill aides. I have often noticed butterflies of the Nymphalidit* family settling near the pools, and apparently imbibing the moisture from the damp sand round the edges, but never before have I seen butterflies enter the water. Possibly it may bo a peculiar habit of this particular species or genus. Numbers of the white butterfly, Pieria hor-palyce, were flying about at the same time, but I uotlccd none alight near the water." which in� prisoner n.m iiwn unin-u. , attorney arp>o and said: "Your honor, my clieut is not here.

Just at 1 that moment the door of the court room opened, upd a man entered. A hum ran over the crowd, while "There hols, there he is," could !� heard on every side. It was the prisoner, who looked not a whit aa if he were about to die. The attorney turned, looked at him, grunted aud sat down without a word, whilo the crowd roared with laughter. ~ Columbus Dis patch. _ Must Ue Quiet. Here's a story ultfmt Stanley that Tho j Boston Herald, in telling, says lias never | been in print: "On his lust lecture tour In this country one of the dtguitarles at Amherst wrote to him expressing the hope ] that while in .>�*iherst Stanley would be i bis guest. He was pained and puz-zled nt ' receiving: from Mr. Stanley's secretary a curt reply to the effect that the gentleman need have uo fear, as Mr. Stanley was always a gentleman. The lecturer did nut accept the invitation, and later It came j out that the gvnNeman's invitation to *l� my guest whilo iu Amherst* had been read, 'be very quiet while iu Amherst.' And the worst of it was that Mr. Stanley** reading of the blind chirugraphy was the naV iiral and ordinary one."_ *>eco rati off a Boudoir. Here is an idea for a small withdrawing room or boudoir: Tint the walls with soft china pink, and tone them down with luce hangings. Nottingham curtain stuff looks exceedingly well, and, ns we all know, is. not expensive. Choose a feathery, ferny pattern. You can find lovely designs sometimes in Nottingham*. After tacking them on the wail finish the lop with a don nee about fifteen or sixteen iuches in length. By dividing a curtain you will get tho finished edge tor the bottom of your flounce. The pink thus covered becomes very delicate and forms a very beautiful background for water irol or drawings. The whole room should tie kept as delicate , as possible with softly tin fed china a-* decoration. Let the frames of tho picture* uud the furniture bo white, the latter covered with a cretonne with a wild rose pattern, aud the floor a light sunny yellow (raw sienna stain), with white wolf fur rugs.
