An interesting question has recently
Veen raised in Hie navy department
and the comptroller for 'he uvasury
has been called upon 10 decide the
same. Officers of the navy are v.nde-
cided whether, under the naval person-
nel act, they are still allowed the priv-
ilege of having enlisted men of the
navy act as their servants. Secretary
l^ong has written the comptroller a
long letter, in which he argues that
there is nothing in the act which pro-
hibits such service being accepted from
enlisted men The subject has not yet
been decided in the treausry depart-
It is not always possible to account
for the fluctuations in the world of
finance. Not long ago. without any
apparent cause, the stringency of the
foreign money market was so great
that there was danger of disaster to
some of the largest moneyed institu-
tions of Europe. But as suddenly as
the danger threatened, it disappeared
and the rate of interest was lowered in
(ireat Britain. France and Germany.
These c hanges were inexplicable, but
for the time being the American gold
balance was drawn upon, and in fact
the outward flow of gold has not en-
tirely ceased yet. But this country is
in a financial condition to sustain any
drafts that Europe may make upon it.
In an article in the Comptes Ren-
dus MM. Prevost and Ilattelli describe
270 experiments which were made up-
on dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs, the
animals being inserted in a condenser |
circuit, charged by a RuhmUorff. The :
number of fatal cases decreased with |
increasing weight and age; two con- |
secutive discharges of 1.000 joules did
not kill a dog of seven kilograms
weight. Quickly consecutive dis-
charges have an accumulative effect,
but are comparatively less fatal than
single discharges. Five phases are
distinguished in the effects; general
muscular contraction, convulsions,
spasms, general inhibitions of the ner-
vous system, stoppage of the heart's
action; young guinea pigs cannot be
revived even after the second phase by
One of the Midiva Islands visited
by the United States expedition mak-
ing surveys for the Pacific- cable, '.s
fiescribed as inhabitJd ay an almost
incredible number of sea birds. Upon
fully one-half of the surface of the
island the sand was literally covered
with them, and the noise of the wind-
ed host astonished the visitor.-. A few
land-birds were mingled here and
there among them. The picture of
abundant bird life will attract tiie no-
tice of the ruthless destroyers who
seem bent on exterminating our con-
temporaries of the air. and who soon
will be sighing for more bird worlds
to conquer. The Midway albatross
it seems, refused to retreat before the
. vader. and bravely faced the fo-. if
the power of defence were once giv< u
to the birds in fuller measure, theii
revolt against plumage-hunters might
stop the threatened massacre.
That there is much room for civil
service refc rm in Turkey is newly em-
phasized by a recent experience there.
An American traveler. wishing to mail
a magazine, was told by a head post-
master that while a good Mussulman
might mail it as a periodical for eight
cents, a heretic would be charged book
post, seventy-five cents. Just outside
the door a clerk whispered. ' Do not ^
mind him' He is an as-! Give me i
your paper, and 1 will send it off when J
he is not looking.'' While this was i
service, il could hardly be called civil,
and surely teere is ne?d of reform.
The cost >^f constru ting a cable sys-
tem is about 12.000 i. r mile and the
total amount invested in sub-aiarine
lines at present is upward of $200,000.-

As Lillie Gordon stood in her pretty

"I mean, madam. I know you suffi-
ciently well to feel sure you would
have hesitated to ally yourself to one
whom you would feel it not worthy to
breathe the same air with you if you
knew what I know concerning him."
Lillie drew up her small person to
its full height, and, in her indignation,
laid aside the air of deference which
usually marked her demeanor towards
her royal visitor.

she was trembling between annoyance

with a little burst of passion. "I de-

Prince covered the distance between

for, despite her calm exterior, her heart
beat high with unknown terror in the
clutch of this fanatic, with whom re-

me to retire," she said, with a
coolness she was far from feel-
