PETeERSBURG. iso RUSSIAs LIPE FROM A CAPE WINDOW. -heDrogsk Driver. and Their Strik g All'Qear--Overcoats seces r91 All the Year-Prevalence of the Toothache. I sat for an hour in the window of a cafe on the famous Nevski Prospekt, St. Petersburg, writes Thomas Stevens in the New York World. It was 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and a fine, sunny day. All the Russian world and his wife seemed to be driving, walking, hurrying, idling peat the window on this Broadway of the Russian capital. The most numerous passers-by, and to the new comer the most Russian and in teresting, are the drosky-drivers, the is voshchics and their "fares." Like Washington, St. Petersburg is a city of magnificient distances. Everybody rides; fares are cheap; and there are 25,000 public drosky-drivers in the city plying for hire. The isvoshchic and his costume are peculiarly Russian. The latter has not changed for ages, and apart from youth and age, whiskers and no whiskers, there is not the splitting of a hair b...

O bird, that lov'st the tree All on a summer day, When the warm breeze Sits free .That makes thy nest to be On its green branch asway Bird, when the sunbeams flee, And green leaves from the tree, What dost thou then?

Having no special interests of my own, and being of a somewhat observant habit of mind, I was last summer a sympathetic spectator of the little domestic experi ence which I have called here the drama of Dunstable Farms. I may even say that I was a humble participant in it. The heroine--but stop! the minor characters should appear first. Now Patty, it must be confessed, is a minor character.

8&1AYATfTN. LOUISIANA. It is interesting to note, remarks the New York Conassereial Advertiser, that American horses can now enter Canada in bond for feeding purposes. In Oregon last winter scrub animals were swept away by the pevere weather, while those bred from pure blooded stock bore the season remarkably well. "Should every dog of every breed is America be killed to-morrow," says a St. Louis statistician, "the real loss to the country would not be $100. On the contrary, the gain would be at least $30,000,000 per year. Nations famed for their thrift and economy do not take to dogs." According to the Detroit Free Fres, a Chinaman who won't raise ducks is looked upon as an enemy of the Empire. What the hen is to America the duck is to China, only a great deal more so. Duck roasted, fried, boiled and baked, ducks' eggs fried, boiled and scrambled, are found on every Chinaman's table at almost every meal. Leaving Boston out, the highest salary paid a mayor in Massachusetts is $3...

GOLD BEATING. A VERY "ANCIENT AND HONORA BLE" TRADE. Processes of Beating Gold Into Extremely Thin Leaves - It Takes 280,000 Leaves to Make a Solid Inch. In a basement on Third street is. the only gold beater's shop in this city. It has been there for eleven years and- every day of those eleven years the bang, bang of the beater's hammer has gone on, yet few people know there is a representative of * the "ancient and honorable" trade in our city. Ancient it is, indeed, having been in ,existence among the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. Whether they used the same processes as those now used or not is not known, but it is thought they were very like those of to-day. The first record of gold beating is that of a German monk named Theopilus in the twelfth century. The gold used. in gold beating is pure gold alloyed with copper and silver to spit the color required. When the gold is any lower than twenty-three carats tne it is alloyed with pure silver, as cop per makes it too harsh to beat...

THE LAFAYETTE ADYERTISEI LAFAYXTTE, LOUISIANA. The latest revelation is that France pays $400,000 out of the public funds to subsidize newspapers for the support of the Government. It is estimated that the Eastern con sumption of canned salmon this coming season will be double that of any other. Its cheapness, together with the scarcity of other kinds of preserved fish, re marks the New York Tribune, has widely enlarged its introduction to families. The Sothern Lumnberman calls atten tioncto the fact that while mills in Iowa and other Northern States have been compelled, by the hot deather, to sus pend operations, the mills of the South have been humming right along every day. "There is no doubt," boasts the Courier Journal, "that our Southern clunmate is superior to anything north of the Ohio."

PATHS3. The paths that'lead to a Loaf of Bread Winds through the Swamp of Toil, And the path that leads to a Suit of Clothes Goes through a flowerless soil. And the paths that lead to the Loaf of Bread And the Suit of Clothes arehard to tread. And the path that leads to a House of Your Own Climbs over the bowldered hills, And the path that leads to a Bank Account Is swept by the blast that kills; But the men who start in the paths to-day In the Lazy Hills may go astray, In the Lazy Hills are trees of-shade By the dreamy Brooks of Sleep, And the rollicking River of Pleasure laughs, I And gambols down the steep; But when the blasts of the winter come, The brooks and the river are frozen dumb. Then woe to those in the Lazy Hills When the blasts of the winter moan, Who strayed from the path to a Bank Ae count, And the path to a House of Their Own; These paths are hard in the summer heat, But in winter they lead to a snug retreat. -S. W. Foss, in Yankee Blade. A WOMAN OF SPIRIT. LY LILY ...
