JOHNSTON'S ADVENTURE. I know this story is true, for John­ ston told it to me himself, and he has not imagination enough to invent an untruth. He told me that if you should at­ tempt to enter Into conversation with a fellow-passenger in a Chicago train he probably would present you with the card in question as a delicate hint that he wanted to be left in peace. 'I am going down to Warwickshire tomorrow,' I said"—continued John­ ston—" 'to spend a few days with Sco ble, and I'll take this card with me. If some one insists on talking to me when I'm reading my paper I'll try what handing him the card will do.' "I took the train at Euston, traveling second class. "My fellow-passenger was a fine looking woman of about 30. The heat of the day and the excitement of catch­ ing the train had given her a florid color, and I could see that the desire of condemning the weather and exposing the wickedness of a cabman was strong within her. "Presently the woman caught my eye and said, 'I beg your...

VOLUME Yin. So magnificent a palace is the Paris Opera that the Parisians long ago ceased to consider whether other na­ tions have good music or good artists, tt is a temple for music so surpassing all Dthers,.with such troops of governmen­ tal priests, all decorated with the rib­ bon of the Legion of Honor, with such throngs of worshipers in diamonds, eilks and black dress coats, that good old favorites like "Faust" and "Les Huguenots" suffice it. It is true that lately they have taken up Wagner, so that the tourists of the. summer may hear such novelties as "Tannhauser" and "The Valkyrie but this must be taken as an extraordinary innovation. The Paris Opera is for French com­ posers. And as French composers just now are not making great successes the repertoire is made up from the good old ordinary. Owned and patronized 'by the government, the Paris Opera is administered on well-considered civil service principles. No disloyal rivalry may mar its decent regularity. No unripe enter...

VOLUME VIII. LIQUID AIR FOR SALE PUSH-CART MEN SEE NEW OPENING. .Clie Wonderful Power Will Be Sold for 0 Cents a Gallon—An Immense ^lant Being Established In New York City. Pushcart venders will soon sell liquid air at a nickel a gallon, and every house will have its own cooling ap­ paratus. A plant capable of turning out 1,500 gallons of liquid air daily has been established in West Thirty-third street, and a company expects to put the discovery on the market in a short time as a commercial product. The air io produced with comparative cheap­ ness, and will be sold as a refrigerant and as a source of power. The pro­ moters of this new novelty gave a pub­ lic exhibition yesterday of their ap­ paratus, and demonstrated that they could produce air much cheaper than any one else. The apparatus for pro 'ducing the air is the Ostergren-Burger process. While the system follows Tripler's invention in the main, the insulation used by Ostergren and Burg­ er to prevent the absorption of warmt...

"And my house not let." Petro Peterson was a stout, bald beaded gentleman of some six-and forty years of age, with bright hazel eyes and a neat, compact little figure. MI don't see why Mrs. Parker want­ ed to give up the house," went on Mr. Peterson, in his unsyllabled solilo­ quy. "She says it's because the price of board is falling, and she can't af­ ford to keep up the establishment! A great mistake! She's the only woman I ever knew who could make a real French omelet, or knew what cafe noir ?meant! Dear me, what can all that ringing at the bell mean?" He had just tossed his cigar out of the window, with the intention of him­ self hastening to the rescue, when a red-haired servant girl came up to his apartment, breathless and eager.
