At an open window in the top story of the Hood building a group of savants in shirt sleeves were gesticulating and shouting, says the Washington Star. One of them was shaking a glittering coin In his hand. The pianist became slightly excited and with his free hand gesticulated violently to his wife. “Skippa tra loo! He gotta da mon!” he shouted above the tumultuous notes of his Instrument. “I no ciimba da walL \ou make tire- Go getta da monk.” Tha woman looked up despairingly at the shinini'    -n,*.    sórt. —vj might after all be teasing her and put the coin back in bis pocket “Getta da roova.

The hint bore quick fruit A sil-Tory gleam flashed from the window to the asphalt and *a musical ring followed that not even the notes of “Annie Koonej” could drown. “Zip! Biff! Datta granda! O.

The bit of silver was half a dollar and it had finally* roiled into the middle of an English sparrow's dinner under a buggy. Tina hesi* tated. but was not lost A tall, well-dressed old gentleman stepped off the sidewalk, came around to Tina's side, and with his cane poked the half dollar from under the wheels. \\ hoii he straightened up his silk hat fell off. the woman screamed and jumped to pick it upi As ,-hegaveit to him she bowed, and her little yellow black eyes twinkled and snapped with gratitude. The pianist lifted his hat to the savant In shirt sleeves and the polite old man. and started his music factory down the street. **God blessa da rich, da poor taka cara daselves!” An EniplUh Writer Pats It 000,000. Few people, even among professed politicians, have much idea of the wealth of the world, or of the manner in which that wealth is growing, says a writer in the Edinburgh Review. Still fewer have any notion of the potentiality of wealth to increase. AL Jannct quotes the elaborate calculation of an ingenious author to show that 100 francs, accumulating at five per cent compound interest for seven centuries, would bo sufficient to buy the whole surface of the globe, both land and water, at the rate of 1,000,000 francs ($200.000) the hectare. The actual growth of riches has not hitherto assumed such inconvenient proportions. ^L Jannet cites various authorities to show that the wealth of the United Kingdom exceeds $50,-000,000,000; that of Franc®, $40,-000,000.000; that of all Europe. $2.M),000.000,OaO; that of the United States, $70,000,000,000. If we place the wealth of the rest of the world at flSO.OOO.OOaOOO w® shall arrive at' an aggregate of $400.-0«X),000,000. We should have, we may add, to multiply this vast sum 30,000 times before we reachea the total to which according to Mr. Jan-net’s ingenious authority, 100 francs, accumulating at 5 per cent compound interest for 700 years, would grow. The figures we have given are so vast that they convey no appreciable idea to the ordinary reader. It may assist the apprehension if it be added that t ranee, on an average, possesses more than $1,000, the United Kingdom more than 1,250 for each member of the populAttpn;^^    on    fy f 1,260,000,000. Two centuries, therefore, have increased it forty fold, but the chief additions to it hav« been made in the last fifty years, and we believe that we are not far wrong in saying that the sum which is actually added to the capital of the United Kingdom amounts to $1.010,000,000, or in other words, is nearly equal to its entire wealth at the time of the revolution of 168S. DOWN A MOUNTAIN. The l>»rlnc    on    Historio    Lookout Tnken by »n Unknown Coaster. A short, compactly built man with a heavy blonde mustache took a toboggan slido down Lookout mountain the other afternoon. Ho went via the incline and made the trip from the Point hotel to the engine house.a distance of 4,500 feet, in three and one-half minutes, which is just one-third the time that it takes a car to descend, remarks tho Chattanooga Times. Fully 100 people saw him make the lightning-like descent and all were greatly excited. The nervy coaster, however, was as cool ffs the proverbial cucumber, and, upon reaching the foot of the mountain, walked away as coolly as though it had taken him an hour to descend. About 4 o’clock the coaster appeared at the Point hotel with what appeared to be a block of wood about eight inches square under his arm. On one side of the block was a steel horseshoe,in the cur«® of which was a small fianged wheel. The other side of the block was slightly concave. The block was put on the outside rail of the incline, the wheel fitting close,and the horns of the horseshoe were on either side. Then the man put a heavy glove on his right hand, afid sitting down on the block started down the mountain without more ada He held his feet crossed straight and before him, and rested them on the iron rail. For a few feet the little one-wheeled car moved slowly, and then the speed increased until it and its human freight were going down the mountain at a rate that made the spectators hold their breath.

An K»Bler W»y Out of It. Mra Pigg, a very charming and vivacious widow, called recently on a legal friend of hers to consult him on a matter of interest to her. “\ou know, sir.” she said to him, “when the late Mr. Pigg died ho left all his fortune to me, much to my satisfaction, of course, but he handi-cappod me with the name of Pigg, which I must say I don't like.” “Well,” ventured the attorney. “I presume a handsome woman isn’t especially complimented by being loft a Pigg.” “I should say not,” she laughed. ‘•Now, what I came to see you about was whether or not I must apply to the legislature to get it changed.” **Um-er,” he hesitated as if wrestling with a great legal problem, “um —ev—yes; but an easier way is to a parson, and I’ll pay all the expenses myself.” It was sudden, but a widow is never caught napping, and she ap-I>ointed that evening for another consultation. — Detroit Free Press. curve w»p ... ugainst tne rail and steadied himself by touching the cable with his gloved hand. I'inally, when he reached the very heavy grade just above the enginebouse he took off all brakes and cumodown like a shot out of a gun. Arriving at the bottom he put on the “heel” brakes and gently came to a stop just at the depot. Coolly rising from his queer vehicle he placed it under his arm and walked quiotlj' away before any of the astonished spectators had a chance to recover their breath or ask any questions. Not Cr»mp That Drowns Them. The Northwestern Lancet offers a new explanation of the sudden drowning of good swimmers, hitherto attributed to crampu There is nothing in a cramp In the leg to prevent an ordinary swimmer supporting himself in the water by his hands or on his back, nor to cause him to throw up his hands and sink once for all, like a stone. Such cases are attributed to perforation of the eardrum, through which the excess of water pressure occasions vertigo and unconsciousness, and a practical caution results to persons having such perforation to protect their ears with a stopper of cotton when bath»'nor The .Joke on Cmnnon. Representative Cannon of Illinois, tells a good story on himself. It is reminiscent of the days when “Sunset” Cox was in congress. The New York representative had had some things to say about a citizen of Cannon’s state, and the Illinois man wanted to defend his constituent “Will the gentleman from New York yield to me?” said Mr. Cannon. “Certainly,” said Mr. Cox. “For how long?” inquired the speaker. “As long as the gentleman from Illinois will keep his hands in his pockets,” said Mr. Cox, laughingly. Mr. Cannon accepted the terms and proceeded with his remarka He uttered just one sentence and a half, and then his bands, which had been snugly stuck into his pockets, came out and were flying through the air like a couple of windmills. “Time’s up,” said Mr. Cox, who knew his man, and then Mr. Cannon sat down. Anybody who has seen Mr. Cannon gesticulate will appreciate the spirit with which ho tells of his first and only effort to talk without the use of bis arms.—Washington Post tb« Wont Criminals In the World Are Kept. ▲ few weeks ago a convict at Port Blair, in the Andaman islands rushed upon Colonel Horsford with an ax, cut off two fingers of his left hand and wounded him in the head before he could be disarmed. Colonel Horsford, who is the chief ccmmls-sioner of the islands, has since been reported as out of danger. Thirteen thousand convicts are living at Port Blair, which is probably the largest penal settlement in the world, says the New York Sun. The Andaman islands are in the bay of Bengal, and to Port Blair is sent the refuse of 250,000,000 people. The worst criminals of British India and Burma, if they incur long sentences of imprisonment, are sent to Port Blair. Over 8,000 are serving life sentencea The attack upon the chief official of the islands is all the more noteworthy because, since the settlement of Port Blair was started in 1857, with the mutinous Sepoys as first colonists, there have been but two murderous assaults on Europeans by convicts; and yet to guide this army of evildoers only one company of British infantry and several hundred Punjab police are employed, a very small force when it is considered that there are no prison walls, and that the convict barracks are scattered all over the settlement, which is several miles square. The hundred or more boats and canoes required for the work of the settlement are far more carefully guarded than the prisoners themselves. There is no chance to escape, except by capturing these boata Even then there would be little hope of freedom, for the Andamans are far from land and lie in a region of tempests. The only refuge is the forest, where runaways are sure to die of starvation, if they are not shot by the natives. The authorities, therefore, have so little fear of any attempts to escape that as many ad 500 of the convicts are often sent ten miles away without any guards except their own officers Even in this isolated place a remarkable incident occurs now and then to vary the monotony of incessant road making and forest felling. Nearly eleven years ago sounds were heard like the firing of big guns, and it was thought a war ship had gone ashore on South Andaman. The station steamer was sent to carry relief to the crew, but no wreck was found. The noises came from Krakatoa, 1,500 miles away, where the most tremendous volcanic disturbance of modern times was in progress. Years ago the ship Run-nymede sailed from Australia and the ship Briton from England, each having on board a battalion of the Eightieth Foot. * The regiment was to be reunited at Rangoon. One dark night a terrible storm caught both vessels near the Andamans, and a great wave carried them high on the shore. Next morning, the regiment, without a man missing, was reunited on the island. The battalions had traveled around the world to meet, and a stranger meeting never occurred. The administration of this penal colony is a remarkable system of rewards and punishment. Invariable good conduct secures beitef'jf^i!>4ig'érs lor Qays’ work. Twenty years of obedience to the rules secures a pardon for life convicta Pardons are often granted for deeds of gallantry, and murderers, red-handed and with weapons ready, have been seized by their fellows, who risked their lives to gain the coveted freedom. The attempt to assassinate the chief official of the colony may result in restrictions that the convicts have hitherto escaped. A Cjiloomy Outlook. “I am an unlucky devil,” cried the editor. “Whttt’s up now?” “Nothing, only I was thinking that If money grew on trees.

There are to be a great many comforts and conveniences in the now chamber which are lacking in the present one and badly needed. Australian’s Emlgrrate to Parasuaj. Australia is greatly perturbed over the emigration movement to Paraguay. The government of Paraguay has given nearly 500,000 acres of good land for settlement to Australian colonists, or others of suitable standing in means and character who join them, and there is an expectation that 10,000 persons may settle on the landa All who go from old to new Australia are teetotalers and have a considerable amount saved, and .the loss of a few thousand men of that stamp is a serious matter. South Australia has, therefore, passed a village settlement act, under which those who want to cultivate land are very favorably dealt with, ^hen comes the question whether thrf Australian land is as good as that in Paraguay, and it is not But there are disadvantages there as well. Resuscitation. A curious method of resuscitation in vogue among the miners of Scotland in the case of insensibility from exposure to choke-aamp. and which is said to be very efficacious, is as follows:    The    half suffocated man is placed face downward over a hole freshly dug in the earth, and allowed to lie until he shows signs of con-soiotisnesa The idea involved in this proceeding is that the fresh earth draws the foul gas out of the lunera Itettln^r With » W'oman. iara—Now, remember, you have bet mo a box of gloves, aad if I win you must buy roe just the kind I like. George—Yes; and if I win— Clara—If you win, you have the privilege of buying me a cheaper sort--if you are mean enough to do it St. Helena’s Stamp Revenue. In the island of St Helena’s total revenue for 1892 of £7,691 is included the odd item of “£13^ received from dealers throughout the world for postage stampa” The population of the islands is biit about 4,000, and is steadily decreasing. A Cruel Rite That Was Resorted to In India—In Undergronnd Cells. The annals of Eastern nations furnish abundant examples of this custom, which has been resorted to from a variety of motives and under very different ^circumstances. The practico may be employed for the purpose of extinguishing life or maintaining life for a prolonged period without food or drink. There is, therefore, a fatal and non-fatal kind of living inhumation, says the British Medical Journal The common description of burial alive (jamadh) is leper burial, which used to be very frequently resorted to in India, often at the request or urgent entreaty of the victims of this loathsome disease. A pit was dug, by the relatives of the leper or by other lepers, and the unfortunate cast into it and smothered with earth. In some cases the wreck was burned to death before being thrown into the pit. Opium water was freely drunk by executioners and executed on such occasions. This cruel rite lingered in Kashmir and some parts of Rajputana till within very recent years. Indeed, it is questionable whether it is even now altogether extinct Lepers have been known in the extremity of their distress and misery to commit suicide by jumping into the pits. Burial alive has also in India “constituted a mode’’ of suttee, or voluntary sacrifice of life, by widows who have been cast by sympathizing and obliging request, into the same graves as their deceased husbands. Homicidal burial alive has been used as a means of punishment of crime, torture, revenge or murder, and the burial has been in such cases either complete or incomplete. The non-fatal form of living burial has always excited more interest than the fatal, which, however, supplies material for a strange and large chapter in the history of human crime. The phenomenon of hibernation yields some sort of countenance to the idea that the animal organism is capable, under certain circumstances — namely, conservation of body, heat, perfect inaction, and preservation from all external stimuli—of living for weeks, if not months, without food or drink; and records of prolonged fasting, with or without sleep, are forthcoming with the regularity of the announcements of gigantic gooseberries, sea-serpents and eight-legged calvea U he alleged proceedings of Indian fakirs and Persian dervishes are cited in support of the possibility of human hibernation in underground cells. The proceedings of these gentry must, however, be very liberally discounted. They certainly achieve some verv extraordinary feats of endurance and self-abnegation. Their efforts to set at defiance the laws and inclinations of the body, and by contemplation, fasting and neglect of the ordinary usages and requiremibnts of life to mortify the flesh and become absorbed into the divine soul, which is, according to the tenets of pedantism, the spring and essence of existence, surpass phvsiological possibility and necessarily engender imposture, which may be conscious or unconscious, or both. This element of uosignea, enters into all their proceedings, and is seldom either diligently looked for or detected. The love of the marvelous is strongly developed among orientals, and fakir stories must be taken with a liberal grain of salt. Tales of prolonged living burial are common enough in India, but in no case has the proceeding Iwen subjected to scientific observation or systematic watching; and in some instances the grave in which the devotee has proposed nate has been uncovered lapse of a few da3’s and its found dead. stricken Down, He Lay Until Death Came to The ex-lord abbot, sect, who died lately at in Kyoto, was the he Buddhist priests in Jap been suffering since year, when he contrae which appears to have character of influenza, ed with much pain an#, fever, and which finally wibr strength of the old prelatesi He does not, howeveVi*. have been altogether pr on the morning of his las was making his way alo rid or attended by a The latter, seeing him falUiú gave the alarm, and insta ter of women charged wi^ of duties and ceremonis^‘ the house of the prelat^ where>lf^ state of ceremony resembliii|* that a court was observed, ran' to spot.

An exhibition of exceeding interest has just been opened at the Vienna museum. This consists of a collection of upwards of 10.000 I'-g’yptian papyrus documents, which were discovered at El Fayum and purchased by the Austrian Archduke Rainer several years ago. The collection is unique, and the documents which were written in eleven different languages, have all been deciphered and arranged scientifically. They cover a period of 2,500 years and furnish remarkable evidence aa to the culture and public.and private life of the ancient Egyptians and other nations. They are also said to contain evidence that printing from type was known to the Egyptians as far back as the tenth century B. C. Other documents show that a flourishing trade in the manufacture of paper from linen raga existed six centuries before the process was known in Europe. Another interesting feature in the collection is a number of commercial letters, contracts tax records, wills, novels, tailors* bills and even love-letters dating from 1200 R C. A Nagriret of Tin.
