THE IATETTE A I St L.AAYKIITT, LOUISIANA. The public debt of the Australian colo nies amounts to $875,000,000, while the entire population-white, black, Maori and Chinese-numbers four millions. Says the New York Independent: "It Is a matter of fact, as statistics show, that, within the last seventeen years, the currency of the country, including coin and redeemable paper notes, has more than doubled, with nothing like such an increase of population." The experiment of profit sharing has had a thorough test at the Bourne mills, In Fall River, Mass., during the last twelve months, and the results have been so satisfactory as to elicit from the Presi dent of the company the opinion that it is the beginning of the solution to the labor problem. If the cable is to be trusted, some young Parisian brides are to be in luck each year. It is said that a sum of money amounting to $3600 has been be queathed to the City of Paris by one Pascal Favale, the interest of which is to be used annually ...

SCKNES IN JAPAN. WHAT A TRA AWIN THE A W erfuI Feadal Stronghold Orientl Housewarming-.The f+ Use of Seals in Japan The C~oolie Porters. There are many castles in Japan, the strongholds in feudal times of the Sho guns and of the lesser great military lords, writes Frederick Stearns in the Detroit Free Press. Since the revolution of 1868 many are dismantled and going ruin, or have been converted into other military uses. The castle at Osaka, being one of the finest, will answer as an ex ample. The advantage is generally taken of some natural elevation commanding the region all about it, and this is terraced. by sloping walls into two or more heights, which the walls uphold and protect. These walls are fronted by wide moats kept full of water. The gateways of these castles, like those of modern forts, are protected from being carried by an assault by means of walls within each other2 behind which the defenders of the castle may fight. k'Tehi lstie of Osaka was built by Riaeyoshi, and ...

LOVE-MAKING IN HAY-MAKING. Love's time is his own, in frigid or torrid or temperate zone, ca winter or summer or springtide or whether The sunshine is glorious or winds stretch theirtether ro batter a city or play with a feather. Love will have his way, Whatever the weather; And yet in the days that are gone, as to-day, The making of love and the making of hay, Somehow go together. Love's way is his own, In frigid or temlrate zone, And whether at noontide, at eve, or at morn ing, He comes as ha :hooses and comes without warning, Ind prisons and barriers are but his scorn ing. So Love has his way In spite of the weather; But why in the present and past, tell me, pray, Do making of love and the making of hay Always go together? -Zitella Cocke, in the Ccntury.

A GENUINE COMPLIMENT. We have heard of the lady of rare beauty who said, upon a certain occa sion, that the only real, distinguished compliment she ever received was from a coal heaver, who asked per mission to light his pipe in the gleam ing of her eyes. Another compliment, true and gen uine, according to a good old school story, was paid by a sailor who was sent by a captain to carry a letter to the lady of his love. The sailor, hav ing delivered his missive, stood gazing in silent admiration upon the face of the lady, for she was very beautiful. *'WeIl, my good man," said she, "for what do you wait? There is no answer to be returned." "Idy," the sailor returned, with humble deference, "I would like to know your name." "Did you not see it on this letter?" "Pardon, lady, I never learned to read. Mine has been a hard, rough life." "And for what reason, my good man, would you know my name?" "Because," answered the old tar, looking honestly up, "in a storm at sea, with danger of death...

Mr. Justice Norris, in the Calcutta (India) High Court, recently delivered what is understood to be the shortest summing up on record. It was as fol lows: "Gentlemen of the jury, the prisoner has nothing to say, and I have nothing to say; what have you gct to say?" i The New York Tribune replies to a correspondent who asked who first sug gested a World's Fair on the 400th an niversary of the discovery of America that "it is not quite certain who is en titled to the honor, but it was probably the historian, Benson J. Lossing, in an article in the Independent." The extent and resources of the Brit ish Empire may be realized when it is stated that it is nearly three times the size of Europe, and only 1,000,000 acres less than Africa.

BETTER. 1efiner to anile while we live than frown, Better to love than to gain renown. Better to comfort some aching heart Than to do in battle a warrior's part. Better some narrow path to tread Than a highway ending In shame and dread. -Moses Gage Shirley, in Youth's Corn panaon. A Tender Conscience. BY AON S GIFFORD. He went among his friends by the siame of the "Vatican Torso." Benedict Payton rather liked him. In spite of the ponderousness of his sobriquet and the magnificent solidity of build which had earned it, he had found the young man less heavy than he had supposed. The classic suggestiveness of his head and face did not prevent him from being an ap parently simple young Roman of the nine teenth century, with a fine, lambent, open eye, and something ingenuous and almost appealing in all his mien. It has been said that Benedict Payton was inclined rather to like him. But this was before the moment when, like a flash of lightning, it came home to him that the Marchese Sever...
