Moreover the photographer was a recognized authority on female Beauty a past grand master of Tho Art of photography a magician of lenses. He was Napoleon Sarony mrs. Bou Kano s first husband. When Sarouy established his photo graph gallery in new York he conceived the idea of advertising his business placing in prominent locations Sam Ples of his work. There were professional beauties and handsome actresses in those Days just As there Are in these Days but Sarony never found a Moro inspiring subject Thau his own wife and he used to Delight to make pictures of her in All sorts of artistic attitudes and in All sorts of garb to which her remarkable figure and charming features Best Lent themselves. So it came about that hundreds if not thousands of photographs were taken of mrs. Bonnano before her first husband died. These photographs extend Over a period of Many years showing mrs. Bonnano in the flush of youth and up to the maturity of her personal charms. They make a remarkable Zeolle Etious that is highly prize members of her family. Not j Only was mrs.

Historically and in the relics of the past which it contains few if any churches in America Are More interest ing Thau old St. John s at Portsmouth n. The founding of the Parish dates from icon but the present edifice is Modem. It was built in 1s0g. And the Good Man who preached the dedication Sermon described iras a work of stupendous magnitude. It is not however the building which attracts us. But its belongings. Here we see the old prayer Book with the prayer for the president pasted Over that for Tho King the vinegar Bible of which Only 40 copies were printed and but live of which Are in the United states. Tho Bell which Calls the Parish to prayers is a capture from Louisburg. And although twice rec ast once Paul a every since its voice was heard in its foreign Home it is yet the same old Bell. An chair which stands behind the altar rail was a gift from Queen Caroline but is now known As the Washington chair having been occupied the first president of the United states when he attended service in the old Church. Admiral Farragut was buried from St. Johns and the Reading table is made of Wood from his flagship.

As far Back As Tho year 1752 Guittard recognized that the Puy Sof Auvergne were volcanic Cones that had poured Forth streams of lava. But it was reserved to Desmarest 12 years later to examine the question in detail and to establish the investigation of former volcanic action upon a bread and firm basis of careful observation and sagacious inference. He discovered that the volcanoes of Central France were not All of one age but had made their appearance in a Long series whereof the individual members became less perfect and distinct in proportion to their Antiquity. While these fruitful researches were in Progress in France others of hardly less moment were advancing in Scotland. Hut ton As a part of his immortal theory of the Earth " had conceived the idea that much Mol ten material had been injected from Lelow into the terrestrial crust and he had found Many proofs of such intrusion among the rocks of his native country. His observations confirmed and extended Playfair and Hail and subsequently Macculloch opened no the investigation of the subterranean phases of ancient volcanic action tir Archibald Geikie. The child tue i the a year old son of a newspaper Man occasionally goes to the matinee with his Mother but the trouble with him is that he becomes greatly excited and is Apt to express his feelings in words to the amusement of the Audi ence but somewhat to the annoyance of the actors. At a recent play one of the actors was in the act of choking an other whom he suspected of being guilty of a crime. As the actor went toward the supposed villain with his hands outstretched the boy became greatly excited and As the men clinched the boy stood up and called out say let him alone he did t do there was a laugh from the audience and a surprised look from the stage. At another time in a play where a husband suspected his wife and she was pleading to taken Home and Given an Opportunity to prove her innocence the boy could not stand the woman s Picas and the husband s cold reception of her entreaties and he called out please mister take her the boy has not been taken to the theater recently Pittsburg chronicle time is also cruel.

A Century cd por that in so Uia Kably Well preserved. Or. Git ii drown the architect has an interesting relic in the Shapo of an old newspaper probably one of to old est publications to he found in this country. It is the Virginia Gazette and Alexandria advertiser published in Alexandria. The copy is dated thurs Day april 25, 1793. The motto of the paper which is printed under the title is As follows 0 thou Whoso a nighty nod the scale of empires rises or alternate fulls Bend Forth the saving Virtues round this land there is no mention Mado of the names of the publishers or editors but a advertisement which is inserted asks for rags old seines fishing not and the like to brought to the office so that paper can inn do from it. From this it would seem that Tho firm manufactured its own paper. In the news columns which form but a Small portion of Tho paper Tho advertisements covering a greater part is a dispatch dated London feb. 25 pre Vious giving an account of an insurrection in Ireland. There Are also published Paige s reasons for preserving Tho life of Louis Capet. The plan of the new French Constitution is Given and a number of dispatches from Paris ap-1 Pear. Our of Tho most interesting advertise ments in the paper is that of a lottery. It states that it will to Given Tho commissioner appointed to prepare Tho Public buildings etc., within the City of Washington for the reception of con Gress Aud for their permanent residence after Tho year 1s00. Samuel Blodgett was the agent for Tho affair in this City. The capital prize was a hotel with All furnishings valued at $50,000. There were Cali prizes of $25,000, the whole amounting to �350,000. Tho lottery the Way was never held As much opposition was developed against it. Samuel Blodgett was the Ono whose heirs claimed a Largo portion of Tho National capital. Tubero Are several advertisements for runaway slaves offering rewards of from $0 to �10. There is an offer of a Reward of $40, which would seem Large compared with those offered for the runaway slaves for Cigut bushels of Clover seed Stolon from mount Vernon Tho advertisement goes on to state that the Clover seed was stolen from Tho granary Aud is supposed to have been taken negroes. It is signed an Thony Whiting who was Washington s overseer.

Thomas Hood. Hood s position in literature has been affected the circumstance that he did two things excellently which in Tho general View Are incompatible in which Case popular opinion generally fixes on the inferior gift As representing the writer s real capacity. To was u funny Man As Well As a Lyric poet of real Quality and Earnest Aims Aud was so admirable and original in the former and More abundant character that it probably caused Many to regard the serious verse As merely a ambitious bid for a reputation it was not in the writer s Power to achieve Hood doubt less helped to strengthen this impression practically ceasing to produce serious poetry for some 15 years of his Short life. But that this was due to a necessity for finding a ready Market for his wares is i think beyond a doubt. Ainger s poems of Thomas to washed with care.

Scandinavians Styly Tukalo Possession of tin limit shh merchant Murine. England is trembling before a second invasion of Tho norsemen. Tho bold sea rovers of Tho scandinavian Peninsula Are not coining Down this time with Battleaxe. They Are going in to Knock out Tho modern briton in a peaceful commercial Way. They Are taking pos session of his merchant Marine insidiously and slowly but As some of Tho British Mario papers declare surely. Tho germans Are next in numbers to Tho scandinavians among the invaders. According to recent statistics More Thau 9,000 norwegians and swedes on Tho seagoing vessels of Commodore John Bull. Many of those Aro potty officers and some Aro commanders. What Tho British Marine papers do not like about Tho matter is that Tho proportion of boys and Young sailors recruited among Tho natives is decreasing. In 1891 there were toss British boys and 10,9-19 British Young sailors in the merchant Mario in 1896 Thero were 4, �1g boys and 9,343 Young sailors. The number of boys of foreign birth increased from 659 in 1891 to 855 in 1896, and Tho Amber of Young sailors of foreign birth mostly scandinavian increased from 51,80? in 1891 to 4,214 in 1890. After lamenting the situation Tho London shipping world suggests a Rem Edy to make the merchant Marine More attractive to boys. It says to must make it easy for decent lads to become and Worth their while to remain seafarers. Some inducement must offered to owners and managers to Cumber their ships with them and some inducement must to offered to the lads to Bravo the Dis agreeableness of life on a tramp it must to seriously faced and without delay whether Tho state will not pay their apprentice ship premiums and give them some preliminary training so that they May not really to and if so Tho state will have Tho right to see that they Are properly fed Clad and treated and that their life is not one dreary round of deck it seems unlikely that any remedy can devised which will prevent the British shipowner and Tho shipping master representing him from getting the Best sailors Young and old for the least Money.
