Fifteen poor school children have jest returned from a two months' vacation at the idyllic Lake Ann in the backwoods of Jemtland. The public homage paid to the'queen at Hook by the temperance people was (evidently very pleasing to her majesty. MShe shook hands with many of the leaders, and had K-Rcind word for*everyone. The spokesman of the temper-iance people was Rev. Eriksson, of Byarum, and, isi thanking him for his • address the queen said:    “I am glad to know that your ^association is based on ; a Christian foundation, and that your work has been a blessing to many.'’ The governoaent has authorized the managers of the Stockholm exposition in 1897 to collect nearly $2,(000,OOO by a public lottery. Nearly onedialf this amount will be paid out as premiums, and the whole number of tickets will be 350,000. 7'his seems an unobjectionable way of raising money; but it will appear esicusable in the light of the fact that the governments of Germany, Austria and other Christian nations are stillin’the habit of encouraging public lotteries. The politicians are trying hard to stir up an excitement during the present campaign. But as far as we are able to judge at this distance, they are far from successful. The chief reason for their failure is no doubt to be found in the fact that the Swedish peeple has entered upon an era of general prosperity and g»rd feeling which always means an off year to the political sensation monger. An unusually large number of clergymen are running for members of the riksdag this year. The reveres from the tariff, the liquor taxesaind the railroads amounted to 51,446,920 .for the month of July. This is an increase of $280,000 on the corresponding income for the month of July last year, which goes a good wars to prove thai tike hard times must have left Sweden. The leading fishermen of Lorby have made a contract with.aGerman firm by which the latter are to buy all eels caught by tfce former until the year 1900, at a price of about ll cents a pound live waight. This is the highest price ever paul for live eels on the coast , of lilekinge. frcm century to century, tbs long as the Dovre mountains arc standing. Let Fridtjof Nansen and his men have three times three cheers.''’ lei the midst of the Nansen festivities, the aged mother-cf Mrs. Eva Nansen said to one of her friends:    “All of it is a great dream. I am only afraid of waking up suddenly.” B. Bjornson has expressed as his opinion that the ’radicals have made altogether too much fuss about the king removing the hat from the head of a workingman at Storen. The king, Bjornsen says, on his recent tour of Norway was received with astounding enthusiasm by the people, “his figure actually seemed to be beaming in the eyes of the people.” The city cf Stay anger has had seme fun poked at her of late. The party which is really to blame for it is the police. Seale weeks ago a number of gun clubs marching through the streets of the city^aw fit to sing the national hymn, and the leaders were ordered to pay fines. Instead of paying tire fines, howeyer, they decided to fight the police to & finish, and the latter have backed water. Prof. iBang, D. I)., was c«mseerated bishop -of ‘ Christiania, Sept.‘6, Bishop Skaar, •cf Trondhjem, officiating. Ver&ens Gang offered a prize of 50 kroner ($13.50) for the best dhort verse on Nansen’s expedition, and ivhen the time -expired the paper had received over 900 productions. A mountain side at Kram in Gud-brandsdalen has the appearance of the profile-of B. Bjornson. Many doubled the existence «df this which formerly was called “Kvam's Guardian;” but Verdens I aug has just settled the matter by giving a faithful cut of the mountain as it appears from the most favorable point of view. Not only the profile of the great poet is marvelously correct, but on the top ol this rests an immense flat rock which looks like a cap. Nature has even supplied this with a tassel - or button—a lone’tree in the middle >cf it. Below the chin are also a few trees which look like flowers pmned to the poet's vest. The majority of a storthing committee proposes the complete abolishment of'capital punishment. Un one sense the proposed change woald not mean much, inasmuch as no'execution has taken place in Norway for 20 years past. The Norwegians are -using the success* of Nansen as a means of advertising the individual existence of the Norwegian people. Jt has been proposed to appoint Nansen'to a professorship iv .the university of Norway. WHITE HOUSE GOSSIP. Perquisites and Pleasures of 'Our Chief Magistrate. Usirle 8am Pays for Dis Ilutlcr uni!

The latter spent A farmer living in Vesterbotten tried | soothing like SI OO.

Passers-by noticed that a woman seated by theiside.of ^sidewalk in one of the thoroughfares of Stockholm, indicated by lier .looks that she was not well. No one seemed to take in situation, however, until ti lusty scream announced the arrival of ti new citizen. Neither of the two parties seemed to be seriously iEaconvcnienced by the unusual surprise.

The attendance art the famous Naas Sloyd normal school for the summer term was 112, of whom:7 were Americans, and 15 Englishmen. The whole number of foreign attendants was 40.

The closing word* of King Oscar’s address to Nansen and his followers at the reception given by the king and queen at the royal palace in Christiania:    “Now- you are standing in the royal castle of Norway, and the king of Norway regards it as his duty, but also as his indisputable right, to express the feelings of the Norwegian people at this moment. Accept, therefore, the sincere, fervent thanks of the whole people for what yon have done, for the joy you have prepared for Norwegian hearts, for the honor and glory which you have shed upon your country. This gratitude will not die away with the mighty waves of temporary enthusiasm, It will survive us who are here now, it will remain with posterity [Special Washington Letter I Although considerable was recently told in u special letter concerning the routine life, the salary <«nd expenses of the president of the United St atees, there are many other interesting details concerning the chief magistracy, and the perquisites ard pleasures of high official position. In the first place, »the president is given a handsome residence called the executive mansion, bvt more commonly known as the Whitehouse. It ie really a white house, constructed cd pure marble. Moreover, the grounds surrounding the presidential residence are ample and beautiful!. The lawns, trees, flowers, fountains, conservatory and house furnishings sr resuppliedand cared for at the expense of the government. One of the funny things during the taking o£ the census of 1890 was the official return made by President Harrison. Ile filled out I he regular blank, declaring that he was a citizen cfiThe United I States, ;a lawyer by profession, that he was temporarily residing in Washington, that his income was $50,000 per annum, and that it w as -sufficient to have support his family. He also certified face | that the house in w hich he resided was “not mortgaged.’* Although the expenses of state dinners are paid out of the president's salary, all of the table equipments, including the silver, glassware, china, mirrors and floral decorations are furnished by tile government. Congress provides appropriations to replace wornout or broken furniture, linen and other liousehold nceessities. During the Hayes administration a china dinner set was paid for by the government, and it cost $5,000. The white house butler and housekeeper are paid for by the government, but the president is obliged PP hire his-own cook acid other household servants. The buller is usually called the steward, «nd he receives a regular salary for looking after the domestic affairs of the -executive mansion. He buys the ice, coakum! groceries, and also attends to the marketing. He sees to it thnrt the gas and electric lights are alwa;*e in order,‘so that tk president is thereby relieved of many little household details which were "originally looked artier by Presidents Washington, Jeffenwai, I J ack »o*! and tk«r successors down to the tisne of President Polk, who first j induced the congress to make an appro-priatkxVfor a white house butler.

Of course Baby McKee was there, too. In compliance with the request of the employes at the navy yard, President Harrison came on deck and began to make a little speech to the men, when Baby McKee inside tire yacht began to cry and howl over some baby trouble. He yelled and yowled and howled, until he broke up the speech-of his grandfather, who went inside.! pacified tin* kid, and then came back tc conclude his speech ten the workingmen. When he. went on bis speech-making tour in 1891, President Harrison did nol take Baby McKee with him. He consequently did not have his oratory dis turbed by competition with the erratic lungs of his precocious grandchild During the present administration the secretary of the navy has made wse OI the Dispatch for his own pleasure trip* because President Cleveland preferrer the Violet and tfhe Oneida.

Th* Female Volunteer Corp* Not th* tint Example of Feminine Soldering. During the recent campaign in Mada^ gasc&r we heard a good deal about the Dahomey Amazons and their prowess in war; and a few months ago a daily paper asserted that a female volunteer corps was in the process of being formed, to lie officered,of course, by some extreme disciples of the “New Woman” 3 cult. In the latter instance the idea of a woman usurping man's place on the battlefield was looked upon as being something quite original; whereas it would simply be a case of history repeating itself, for that there have been many such heroines the follow ing particulars will prove:    Mrs. Christine Davies, commonly called “Mother Ross,” s a well-known example, she having served as a foot soldier and dragoon in several campaigns under William III. and the duke of Marlborough, acting as a squadron leader of the Scots greys at Blenheim and Ram ii lies. She died July 9, 1739. Hannah Snell was another female worthy, who, having been deserted by her husband, adopted male attire, and travelled to Coventry in search of t ho runaway. She there enlisted in Col. Guise’s regiment of foot, and marched with them to Carlisle at the time of the Scotch rebellion of 1745. She afterward enlisted in Fraser’s regiment of marine*, wild proceeded to Portsmouth, whence she sailed in Admiral Boscawen® squadron for th** East Indies.

Its .walls consisted of stone and earth, and its general plan and construction were such that at might have been boult by Icelanders.of the Saga age. But, unfortunately, lamps of burnt brick there and there spoke against a Scandinavian origin, aud the house seems to date from the fiimes of the early English settlements. Some eight or ten feet under the ground was found a wery primitive path leading from this house to the landing place; but here, too, were found chips of brick. There still remains, of course, (the hypothesis: The house and the path were built by tthe Norsemen, but they were repaired and use by the English settlers.

I sin ce knew a president wbooe policy proved do la* unpopular during his in-wwitency of office, and very few senators i»r representative* called upon him. Wh*-,1 'thinking of his lonelin^*®® in his high position, and contrasting the lives of «<T*her presidents who daily receive the erffieial and social calls of upwards of 50 of-the leading men of this nation, it ha*•occurred to me that the friendship and admiration of the people is a perquisite of tile president which k? attainable'by no other American «*itizen in any other position, or under any other circumstances. Undoubtedly the president who was shunned by his own party leaders aud ignored by the leaders of tin* opposition, would gladly fefcve counted the friendship of the people a greater perquisite of his office than the salary’ and all other emol’.imelts combined.

I assure those ortho only imagine they are ill that they frailly are ill. while thore who are really iii I assure that they are quite well.”— Flsegende Blaettcr. The Reason They Are Dinappolnted. He— Few men marry the women they really want. Sh©—I suppose not. They rarely know that they want a partioular woman until she is married to some other man.—Brooklyn Life. itnate granddaughter of a Scotch earl. I is surmised to have adopted male attire and the medical profession from attachment to an army surgeon. Never in her lifetime had anyone the slightest sus-picion of her sex. While-staff surgeon I to the cape garrmon, ©he most suce-iessfully treated the governor, Lord iCharles Somerset, fought a duel, and was considered to be of a most quarrelsome disposition. The doctor was frequently guilty of flagrant breaches of discipline, and on more than one occasion was sent home under arrest, but somehow or other, the offejwic® were always condoned at headquarters. The late earl of Albemarle relates in his reminisccnses. that on sitting next to he.r ut mess, he noticed “a certain effeminacy in his manner, which he seemed to be always st rn ing to over come. while his style of conversation wa* greatly superior to that one usually heard ut a mess-table in the days of non comjietitive examinations.” In Tis rf'n Army List for 1865, the name ot James Berry, M. I)., stands at the head of the list of inspectors general of hospitals. In the July of the same year. her death was announced, and the next day it win-officially reported to the horse guards that the doctor was a woman. It is singular that neither the landlady of her lodging, nor the black valet, who had lh cd w ith her for years, had the vaguest notion of her secret.—Admiralty and Horae Guard’s Gazette.

These gentlemen will visit Blue Hill and trials will be made during the week to eclipse even the already noteworthy record.” Bath Money. Among the Turks bath money forma an item in every marriage contract, the husband engaging to allow his wife a certain sum for bathing purposes. Should it be withheld she has only to go before the cadi and turn her slipper upside down, and if the complaint be not redressed then it is a ground for divorce. ' and bayous where good hunting abounds. President Arthur and President Harrison often used tho Dispatch for cruises around Chesapeake bay, and occasionally for trips to New" York and the New England coast. The Tallapoosa was a swift sloop which was often used by President Hayes; but the Tallapoosa was sunk in collision with a Yankee fishing smack off the Massachusetts coast, and the Dispatch has been the official yacht for the presidents ever since. Do you remember that when Harrison was president he had a grandson named Benny McKee?

A floating barrier of pumice stone, IO miles long, over 1,000 yards wide and 15 feet deep, cloning a seaport to all venae Is os effectually as a boom could do, is not the sort of thing one is likely lo forget. And yet that was one of the results of the Krakatoa eruption, the port being Telok Retoung, in banda straits. Formed in a few hours, it would almost seem to Ik* in supreme effort of nature in the pumice-making line were it not that such immense quantities are found at the bottom of the sea. A queer place for pumice stone; but pumice stone when produced is really heavy; it is only the air cavities in it that make it light, and as it float© it becomes waterlogged and dow n it goes. Most of the pumice we use in Europe comes from the Lipari islands, north of Sicily, “the home of Vulcan,” whence Volcano as the name of one of them, and our “volcano” as descriptive of the natural feature of which it is the t\ pc. Here are the pumice quarries— at Monte (’hirica and its craters. Monte Pel a ta and Forgia Yecchia—where over a thousand men are at work in the narrow tununels and galleries, lighted by clay lam])© of antique form. The w’hole hillside is perforated with groups of ihese tunnels, which number between 290 and 300, and are so narrow that the men can hardly peas each other in them. And. just as coal is found in beds alternated with sandstone and shale, so the pumice is in layers between harder lavas and ashes.—Leisure Hours. •tinrMiium Itjtr.*’ The Monon has put us a fast fiver for Indiaaup 'a* und Cuuttnnati.
