THAT UNFORTUNATE BOY. [Brooklyn Eagle.] The marvelous capacity of the small boy for breaking himself up is strik ingly illustrated in the case of Alex ander Chambers, son of T. W. Cham bers, of this town, whose twelve years of life have been made exhilarating by the following incidents: 1. Broke his nose falling off a plank, seven feet on the flagging of an alleyway. 2. Sprained one of his arms. 3. Fell on the sidewalk and broke his nose; sec ond calamity of the kind. 4. Run over by a truck; left thigh byken. 5. Fell between the wheel and body of a truck, lacerating left leg and crushing anklebone, causing an abscess to form. 6. Shot in the foot by a playmate who had shapped a pistol at him sixteen times, and at last succeeded on saying: "Here she goes, Ally." 7. Broke a finger while at play. 8. Cut in the head by being knocked down in a skirmish. 9. Left arm bruised by a similar difficulty. 10. Long gash in the skull, acquired by being tripped up and whacked on the head by an other...

"RE FMAETTE MDERTISBI L &F7yBT 1. LOUISUN~A. An engine ariver of the Central Asian railway, who sustained concussion of the brain in a serious accident some time ago, sued the railway officials for damages in a court at Samarcand, and obtained very satisfactory and somewhat original com pensation. The court decreed that he should be paid 7000 roubles down at once, and in addition should receive thirty roubles, or $15 a month, with an extra ten roubles for every child which might be born to him. F Hardly any accidents are more dread. ful than those which occur in collieries It is hard enough for the poor miners tc go down into the dark cold earth and delve in its black veins. They love th' bright sunshine and pure air. But the worst of their lot is the dreadful possi bility of fire or a cave-in. To die like rats in a hole, the flames roasting their unfortunate bodies is a ghastly fate. Yet It is only too common. A mine in Eng land, which was considered a model one for ventilation...

THE LAND OF THE LIVING. "Are you still in theand of the living*" daired a man of an aged friend. "No, but jam going there," was the reply.] 0 land, so full of breaking hearts, O'erhung with shadows blinding. Where half the worll the other half In sheet and shroud are winding. We stretch our eyes away-away Past this domain of sorrow, And catch the tintings on the clouds Of an auroral morrow. Each year we see the brighest leaves In autumn's hand the serest; Each year the bird-notes die away, Which rang for us the clearest; Each day the cruel mouth of Death The lie to life is giving, And yet we call this fading land The region of the living! 0 angel man, whose silver hair Is like the ring of glory: God bless you for that precious truth Our hearts repeat the story; And while we sit in vacant homes Heaven's golden bells are pealing Along the darkness of the night, Making the same revealing. -Eaina lood Taille.

WASiIlNGTON LETTER. (From otur Regular Correspondent.l WAsHINGTON, April 17, 1b90. Editor Adecrtiser: Secretary Blaine having sent for the United States minister to Brazil has been holding long conferences with him this week in order to concoct a plausible statement, which is to be made public, to account for the slow bess on the part of this Government in recognizing the Republic of Brazil. He may make any statement he pleas es, but the fact will remain that the re cognition did not take place until the Democrats in Congress had introduced a resolution to compel its being done. The tariff bill, which after many hitches and delays was finally reported to the House late Wednesday after noon, is not the measure it was when first made public by a good deal. The committee could not stand the press ures and were compelled to make many changes, among the most im portant of which were the placing of hides and sugar on the free list. To conciliate the sugar producers of this country a bount...

THE LAFATETTE ADVERTISEI S&PATETFE, LOUISIANA. The proposition to abolish the use of French as an official language in the northwest territory is likely to solidify the race elements in Canada and bring about a test of strength. The antago nism of blood and religion has existed for years, but here is a distinct issue, upon which the fight may come on. Paris morals are getting even worse Last year out of 26,000 malefactors 16,. 000 were under twenty years of age. TFhe corruption in this wholesale way of the youth of a great city is the most un favorable sign of the many unfavorable signs given lby the French capital. The moral reliance of France has long been in the provinces. Probably 1000 steers are shipped alive out of New York every day. Their landing place on the other side, as a rule, is Deptford, London. Ships carry all the way from fifty or sixty head up to 600 each. If a hundred or two are carried they are kept on the upper deck. if from 400 to 600 are carried, then twc ...

Stanley's journey from Mpwapwn to l1agamoyo, writes Thomas Stevens in the New York World, was an interesting arld picturesque one. The explorer was quar tered in a green water-proof tent about eighteen or twenty feet square. This was not the tent with which he started up the Congo, but which he was event ually obliged to leave behind because it required so many carriers to convey it from camp to camp. This tent waS a gorgeous canvas villa containing no less than six apartments-parlor, bedroom, dining-room, kitchen, bathroom, etc., with every convenience that could be provided in a movable dwelling. It is well known that Stanley considers a comfortable, waterproof, roomy tent a very necessary thing to have in Africa and there is no doubt that the six-roomed tent was a sensible idea. It seemed to the writer, however, ...

BREATH OF SONG., 'From the minister's organ-loft, Floating down the shadowed navo, Comes a strain of masic soft, Falling as a weavy wave Falls upon the beach of sand, Murmurous and sweet and bland, Bearing from the mighty sea Messages of melody. There, alone, the organist Lets his listless fingers go Lost in a melodious mist O'er the key board, to and fro; There, half-dreaming, in the gloom Sits the weaver at his loom, Weaving with the threads of sound Music-woof the warp around. All unconsciously he hides Strains familiar in his theme When a master-spirit glides Through the doorway of his dream Mozart, Handel, Chopin, or Harmony's great conjurer Rapt Beethoven!-each is part Of the dreaming player's heart. So the poet dreams, nor heels Who may listen, who may hear; Following where fancy leads, She alone to him is dear; Omar, Keats, Theocritus, In his voice may speak to us From the realm of ages dirn These are in the heart of him! Poets in the fields of time, Since the world began, h...
