The old Benedict Arnold bouse is still standing in the Fifth ward, on Water street, near the corner of Olive street. It has fallen Into decay, b\it there aro some- gray haired citizens who remember it when it was ono of the show places of the town. IU orchard was the largest and finest in Now Haven, and tho grounds woro laid out in handsome terraces. Arnold built the house soon after his return from Ticonderoga. Ho must havo been a man of some wealth, for tho house was well built and tho grounds were ample. Arnold was not a popular man. Uo hud a violent and irascible temper, and ''would rather fight than eat," as has been said of him. He always found fault, and tho ferryman who took passengers across the mouth of the Qulu-nipiac river before the bridge was built dreaded to have him for a passenger, for he always swore at them for not rowing faster. Nevertheless, Arnold was a man of affairs. Besides his business as a druggist and bookseller, he, with Adam Babcock, owned three vessels engaged in tho West India trade. They were the brigantino Fortune, forty tons; tho Charming Sally, thirty tons, and the Three Brothel's, twenty-eight tons. Arnold never took particular pains to see that oil custom house dneti were paid; in fact he was very lax in this particular. It is related that onco nn n time u sullnr on board one of his vessels reported some of these laxities to the collector of the |�orr. The report was made on Huuday, and the collator refused to receive iL, and told theKjiilor in como again on Monday, in the nieimtlme Arnold had beard of th*1 Killer's tale bt-.tring. Hefora Monday cum" Arnold adopt''d a cwrv of moral ami physical -mwnu which foiupelb'd the sailor to h-tv.- town with hi.i tide untold. Arnold's laxity iu regard to tin- custom house laws was probably not much greater than that of his neighbors. ludced, to evade the customs was a virtue rather than a fault, for it was regarded na a justifiable method of protest against taxation without representation. Arnold's property was confiscated after his treachery at West Point was discovered. Pierpont Edwards acted on th�* .overnmont administration and sold the pro]*erty to Capt Isaac Prout. Capt. Prout made only a partial payment, and was unable to meet the sutisequeiit payments an they became due. In this way the property came into the hands of Noah Webster, the lexicographer, and ho lived there for wine years, dually selling it to James Hunt, a West India merchant, who devised ft to his daughter, wife of D. Goffe Puipps, of this city. The house still remains in Mrs. Phlpps' possession, although it has l�en almost dismantled. Betsey Arnold, a sister of Benedict Arnold, lived for years and years, after her brother's disgrace, iu Norwich on public charity. When she was 00 years old she whs taken to the almshouse by old Sheriff 12. Q. Thomas. Betsey made a gr'at hov:-da-do about it, and was so grieved that sho lived only a few mouths. She was a strong old woman, and had much of her brother's temper.-New Haven Palladium. How to Die. I was in Oudh at the time when a very rich Hindu-brother to tho famous prime minister or Nepaul, Sir Juug Bahadur-arrived in a dying state at the sacred city of Ajudbia, Though stricken with mortal sickness, he had mado the long and painful journey from Ne-paul in order to die iu the holy city that gave llama birth, and which Is to the Hindu what Mecca is to tho Moslems, and far more than Jeru&alotn is to Christians. On hearing of his arrival the English magistrate at Py&tb&d went to see him, the day before hlr* dritth, as It proved to be. Ha found the rajah lying on a low wooden bed-Hlead, such as la used by the poorest natives, In a bare, mud plastered little room, having neither windows nor a single article of fund* ture except the bedstead iu it, and with his silver dishes and drinking vessels spread about on the mud floor. To English eyes It seemed truly a strange and com fort less deaths bed, but such a view of it would not havo struafc any uf the Hindus present; the dying man, they would have said, hud all h� needed, and God was gracious to have let him live tlU bis journey was accomplished. I know of no western parallel to this scene. -Tumi>l� Ibu* 1 HIGH LIFE IN A'CITY FLAT. PERSONAL CONFESSION OF ONE WHO KNOWS ALL ABOUT IT, t/*��� th� MitiiHe-T*rrrar of Hearing the l>oot Hell. I l.miw coimidorable about high lifo. 1 j havo lived in the nccnnd or third stories \ of diwiriiblo flats or modern houses ftinco | 1 was put into flhorL drpssos. I have j vinwed the world from exalted heights, [ especially when I hung: clothes in tho j garret on wash days, and I am prepared j to say that although eoino people pay I extrn l� live on the first floor front, they 1 miss tho very richness of existence. ; Cream always rises to the top. I have just moved out of apartments on the second otory of a very narrow ; house. I think tho architect who planned the building must have done it with one eye. Its whole width accommodated the width of au apartment of ordinary size, ho, instead of the rooms branching off from ono another in their usual convenient fashion, , they had formed u procesaion in Indian file from the front elevation to the coal house. If you were in the kitchen you had to go through every room in order to get to the front room. You couldn't wander about that house-you could only go through it. The family of which I am a proud and valued member in not a small one. Families in flats never are. You will realize the truth of this if you ever come to live on the floor underneath one of them. I hope- that no girl will ever tell one of my brothers that she will be a pieter to him. There are too many of us now. THE OMNIPRESENT FOLDING BKI>. One of the results of large families living in small flats is the folding bed. They lean against the wall, trying to look like a book case or a cabinet organ, but I can always tell them. When I see a piece of furniture looming up like a monument factory, with a kind of nothing in particular air about it, then I know that it is a bed iu disguise. Our parlor wae situated about midway down the line of rooms bo as to connect with the front stairs. Two of us girla had a folding bed in there. We used to arrnngf vases and photograph holders upon it during the daytime in our endeavors to conceal its identity. Every other room except the dining room and culinary department was the station for a bed. and when we had company to stay all night we used to spread canvas cota in the back hall. I tif�ed to hum a sweet little song about "Oh, put mo in my little cot, mother!" but since affording accommodations foe visiting relatives by spending a few nights out in the back hall on a bier, with a tent roof for a tick, I have refrained from petitioning my mother to do any such thing. It ijcoms natural to those not accustomed to dressing rooms to take off and put on their clothes in the bedroom, consequently we used to dress and undress all over the house. Any one by simply walking once through our flat in the dead of night could have fallen over enough wearing apparel to have set him up in the clothing business. recsivtno callers. There was some inconvenience in this predominance of dressing roouiB, especially if any one called in the daytime before our toilets were complete or in tho night time after any of us had retired. We never heard the outside front door bell ring but its sound smote us with terror. We would fly from all part's of the house and congregate at the head of, the stairs to hear if whut we dreaded was true-that tho caller was ours. It often was. Then the real earnest work began. One of us tore off her apron, tied her shoo, combed out her front hair and scoured her teeth preparatory to opening our then carefully closed door. Others flew down the length of our rooms gathering dress waists, petticoats, bath towels, accordion skirts, nightgowns and the like as they went. We were almost sure to leave a piece of raiment or some toilet article in a conspicuous place, It seemed to be fate. People coming up stairs to see us always heard a loud crashing and sounds of flying feet, but after they knocked upon the cherry stained panelu all was still. We used to skip just where we happened to be when the knock came. ;tueu features. One cr.M winter''a evening 1 stopped in a small clothes press, which opened into the parlor, and 1 was obliged to exit^t there for two hours and a half while my youngest sister talked to a man al>out the likelihood of finding ten varieties of orchids at Portage Falls. One time when my basque was hanging on a door knob iu the kitchen, when I was in the front room, n.nd two callers In seal sacks were awaiting me in the parlor, I had to hail our grocery man's errand boy as he was going by with a sack of flour and Bend him around into the kitchen with an order for my basque. I thought delivering basques would come rather natural to one used to carrying sacks. He brought it around to the front .of the house all right, and I fished it up with a gilt cord of our mantel lambrequin. Owing to the marriage of several of my sisters and the raising of the salaries of several of my brothers, wo have fallen into the position where It Beems incumbent upon us to live in the style which our income demands, and we have concluded to rent an entire house. From my long experience iu flats I know that the ringing of a door bell will always strike terror to my soul, and I know that I shall never entertain company without glancing uneasily at the sofa to see if we threw those stockings clear under, out of sicht,-Buffalo Express.

The long training of the people In verse composing aud verse reciting predisposes them to the composition of poetry of some degree of excellence. Irishmen and Irishwomen as a rule have � knack at writing if they receive any education at all, and are natural journalists and writers at an early age. The last remarkable poet of thejUe kind known in Ireland was Carolan, the blind bard of the last century, whose portrait am1 tome of whose verse*, translated and li the original, were published bx Jame* tnrr-zin; -lie was as ' pCtlpatcXIO - Homer i* said to have been, blind also, and certainly a line if not a great poet. Though the race is not extinct, little except tho most ordinary verso Is published in Irish today, the audience being too Hiimll to tempt the most ardent patriot, With all its inherited shortcomings, and with the evils that befell it owing to circumstances, the poetic ftuild of ancient Ireland did tho world a great service in keeping from destruction historical and national duta lost from other parts of Europe. It also added not a little to tho world's stock of tragic, of noble and of comic fiction.-Charles do Kay in Century. The Country Paper In the City. It would do tho hearts of country editors good to ride up town on the elevated cars in tho afternoon of Friday aud Saturday on any week in the year. On these two days a great many business men give only a hasty glance at tho evening papers and then Immediately draw from a pocket n copy of a paper that is in marked con-trast to the city paper, so far as type and general appearance goes, The type is invariably larger and the displays of advertisements and headings to news articles commonly coarser. The ink is not always spread evenly over tho page. Nevertheless, tho business man opens the paper to the page devoted to village news and reads every lino there. After that he not infrequently reads the village advertisements and gives a brief look at the editorials. The city man used to live in the village where that paper was printed, and he recognizes the names of people there as old acquaintances, and commonly old friends. The village paper comes like a letter from home to the city man who was once a villager.-New York Sun. A New Llft-httiouMi. The new lighthouse at Hoatholm is the most powerful in the world. The beam is of 2.000,000 candle power and shows clearly at Blobhun, a distance of thirty-five miles. It is produced by arc lamps, fed by De Moriten's dynamos, driven by fitcam engines. To prevent the' extinction of the light through an accident to the machinery the latter is duplicated, one set coming into play should the other fail. The light is further supplemented in thick weather by two powerful sirens, or fog trumpets, working with compressed atr. The fascination which a powerful light exercites on wild birds is curiously illustrated by thin lighthouse. It is eaid that baskctfulsof dead snipes, larks, starlings and so forth are picked up in the mornings outside tho tower. They kill themselves in dashing against the windows of the lantern.-Montreal Star TTORXSVB, Attorney* aft Law, Offlce over Wrat Nation*! Baak. Battue* ci Sherman street. Writing on Caat Iron* Mr. John Farrar, foreman of the Q. W. & F. Smith Iron Company, of Boston, has three small cast iron plates, one of which is 81 by 5 inches, on which is cut in sunken letters-etched-tho Lord's prayer in bold handwriting, and the other two, each 5 by 6 inches, containing outline drawings, one with three sketches-a pig in an inclosure, Bwans on water, and a deer, with pyramids in the distance, and the other plate contained an outline drawing of a horse. Referring to these plates. Mr. Farrar said: "What you see on them is done with a common steel peu on a piece of thin paper. The paper, when prepared, is pinned into a wind mold, iron is poured into the mold and the writing is transferred to the casting."-Boston Ilerald. Kh� Furcot Too Soon. Paris officers, going to seize the goods of a woman against whom a judgment had been obtained, found her lying apparently dead and prepared for burial in her rooms. They were about to retire when one of them could not resist the temptation to pinch the plump arm of the woman. The supposed corpse promptly sat upon the bier and gave the impertinent officer a regular dressing down before she remembered that she was dead to her creditors, if not to the world. The execution was made at once and tho goods sold.-New York Sun. _ __ Aa Others See Vs.

Vae for Cost On* Garment*. Who could dream of boiling up soldiers' cast oil troupers? Yet this is what is done with the discarded leg coverings of tho English soldiers, and what do you guess to be th3 use of tho condiment when so cooked? The pulp thus produced is used to stuff balls.
