PARIS* NEW SLANG WORD.
THE TABLE IN SUMMER.
RVTH BRYAN S ENGAGEMENT TO

LONG SUFFERING OF “VNHAFP1
CARLOTTA” WILL SOON BE ENDED •
Called Into Being by tfle Death of
Tbe death nf the pope ha* enriched
the arsot of Paris with a new word.
A policeman is a ‘ ramerlenKO.” The
first constable who heard himself ad-
dreaded by that epithet was indeed
nonplussed, quite as much as the gen-
darme who was called ‘centurion.’*
But the motto of the Paris police is
"When in doubt, arrest your man."
And in this case the innovator spent
a few hours at the police station be-
fore being released. According to one
authority, tho connection between a
policeman and a camerlengo is to be
found in the silver hammer used to
thrice strike the deceased pope's brow.
A policeman is a "cogne," i. e., he
who strikes and this furnishes the
connecting link. However that may
be, the fact remains that the word is
now in common use, and in every
street squabble at present some one
is sure to shout, *'Kh, va dono, earner*
linguc!*’—New York Tribune.

HOW LONG MOSQUITOES LIVE.
'Hammering Clerk’s Explanation Wai
a Good One.
In a certain law office in this city
there is a clerk who 1* afflicted with
oceanional fits of stammering. Re-
cently he was sent to serve some j>a
pers on another lawyer. Upon pre-
senting himself before the man he
had to soe he drew out the papers
and tried to make a few explanatory
remarks, but for all hlB gagging anil
coughing not a word could he utter.
The lawyer who was to be Horved was
of an irascible temperament, and he
stood the clerk’s sputtering as long
as he could. "Come, come!" he finally
exclaimed, “are you a process server,
or what?" "N-n-n-o,” gasped the
wretched clerk, "i'm-haw ah—I'm-I‘m-

through the winter, hibernating or

AND KILLS TARANTULA.
Venomous Insect Had Terrorized Fam-
ily for Six Months.
An ugly, venomous tarantula from
the tropics was dispatched at the
home of William Zink, in Gloucester
City, after it had terrorized the family
for six months, says a Philadelphia
dispatch. Zink was a former fruit
dealer, and one day half a year ago,
while he was handling a bunch of
bananas, the huge spider hopped out
and stretched itself. Zink and mem
bers of his family searched for the in
sect for some time, without avail, arid
then concluded that it had escaped.
Not long after, however, the tarantula
was discovered in the house, and again
chase was given it, but once more it
escaped by hiding.
At intervals ever since the taran-
tula had been seen at various places
through the dwelling, but in every in-
stance it managed to elude its pur-
suers. It soon got to be a reign of ter-
ror in the house, and the inmates
shivered at tne slightest sound.
Just as he anil his wife were aris-
ing this morning Zink once more
caught sight of the tarantula as it
clung to a picture frame in his bed-
“Ha!" cried Zink. "I have you at
last," and he leaped wildly toward the
The huge insect dropped behind the
picture frame and mysteriously dis-
appeared. Sure that he was on Che
trail. Zink determined to rid the house
of the creature, and continued tho
search. Finally, after two hours of
unceasing scrutiny, he came upon the
tarantula crouched in a crevice in the
wall, where it may have hidden all
these months. After a terrible battle
Zink killed it and proudly exhibits the
hairy body at his home. It measures
over five inches across its legs.

Warning Against Celibacy.
At Cherry Point, Northumberland
county, Virginia, is the grave of Izatis
Anderson, who died Aug. 11, 1823,
ege 44 years 6 months and 12 days.
His epitaph states that: “He was s
worthy and estimable man, n kind
neighbor, a faithful friend and a good
citizen. In other relations of life he
might have been equally praise-
worthy, but he died a bachelor, hav
lng never experienced the comfort of
being a husband and father. This sit
nation he found so comfortless that
in his last will he directed this stone
to be placed over his remains, with an
inscription warning all young men
from imitating an example of celibacy
which yielded no other eventful fruits
but disappointment and remorse. In-
scribed at his request by his friends."

LEAVE THE FEUD DISTRICT.
Fgmous Hatfield Family to Live in the
The Hatfields, famous in Kentucky
and West Virginia for their feud with
the McCoys, have deserted the old
battleground and gone to the far west.
About fifty strong, they have bought
land near Chehalis, Wash., whore they
will settle. It is nearly half a century
since the feud began between these
two families. Ever since then the
trouble has been more or less of a
terror in the mountain border land of
Kentucky and West Virginia, scores
of lives having been wiped out on each
side. For some time there has been
comparative peace. The present, exo-

Apropos of the humorous reference
to the somnolence of judges made by
James M. Beck, formerly assistant at-
torney general of the United States,
at the dinner of the Hardwicke soci-
ety in London, an English paper re-
calls that during the protracted ses-
sions of the Parnell commission Jus-
Ike Day habitually sat with closed
eyes, it was commonly supposed that
his lordship was sleeping, and the
late Sir Frank Istckwood, observing
that the learned Judge was very much
awakened by a little tiff between the
president and Sir Charles Russell, ex-
claimed quite audibly: "This is the
dawn of Day!’’—Omaha Bee.
The Change* of lime.

clergyman whose views when he took
Ills present charge were far In ad
vanco of those about him. By de-
grees new’ ideas crept In and a young
minister, thoroughly Imbued with
these advanced notions, was called
In to assist him. Said the young man
one day: "Doctor. I have always
teen told that, you were a high
churchman, but I don’t think you are
high church at all." The elder
preacher replied: “My dear young
brother, when I first took up my real
dence in New York 1 lived ’way up
town. Now 1 live ’way downtown
and yet I have been living In exactly
the same house all the time "

Undaunted by the difficulty which
Bishop Potter of New York is having
in getting money to carry on con-
struction of the great catnedral there,
Bishop Olmsted of the Colorado Epis-
copal diocese is planning a similarly
notable structure in Denver. It will
be begun in November next and his
plan is that only a small portion that
can be used be now erected and ad-
ditions made in subsequent years. His
idea is similar to that of Bishop Pot-
ter and Bishop Doans of Albany to
erect a building which it may take 150
years to complete, not to be a parish
church, but a center of congregation
for the whole diocese.

Heligoland in Winter.
During the winter there are no vis-
itors at Heligoland, and life is very
dull on the Island. Nearly all the
shops are shut and, if you want to buy
anything, you have to ring or knock
before you can attract attention. The
lodging housese are also closed, and
the fishing boats are drawn up on the
beach above high water mark. At
night the Heligolanders gather in the
public halls, the men to drink beer,
smoke and play cards, and the women
to dance. There are no formalities,
as all the islanders have known each

permit even the customs officials who
visit the Breldablik to slight him.
Boarding Officer Rauch, who exam-
ined the steamer’s manifest yesterday
on her arrival from Samar, was called
to account by the rodent, which forced
its way to the. front, obliging the of-
ficial to stop work and make terms
with the pet of all on board. The

Eulogy of Queen Alexandra.
President Loubet of France says
that in the presence of Queen Alexan-
dra one forgets to look at other wom-
en “who may be twice as beautiful and
not half her age. As for her grace, it
is astonishing. She makes mo think
of a queen of old France. Where did
she learn that superb graciousness of
bearing which clothes her as with a
garment? Surely not in that sleepy
little Danish court she came from! We
have women in France w’ho are proba-
bly better dressed, but we have none
who possess her supreme elegance.
She is royal from top to toe."

Pronunciation of Maeterlinck.
The correct way to pronounce the

"Mah ter link,” not Mayterlink, or Met-

French pronounce it Mayterlink be-
cause the sound of ae in French Is "a,”
