Paul Guatave Dore.
The best known artist of modern
times Paul Gnstave Dore, died on the
•23d of January, 1883. He had survived
Ills extraordinary popularity, which was
due rather to fertility and daring origi-
nality of genius than to that superiority
of conception and thorough werk which

To peace, pertlde. in loving you,—

Alas, for me! 'twas true—too true!
That with those sly, magnetic eyes,
A subtle spell you exercise
give enduring value to artistic produc-
tions. During his short life he made
about fifty thousand designs founded on
a remarkable diversity of subjects. He
developed surprising capacity in various
departments of art, but did not attain
an enduring distinction in either. His
work was too lllffiise, his undertakings
too numerous, to give him uiore than an
ample income and an evanescent emi-
nence. That chapter in the history of
art covering Dore's period of activity
will not record his name among the im-
Dore was born at Strasbourg. January
6.1833. He was taken to Paris before
hie school-boy days, and educated In the
capital at the L.v'cee Charlemagne. The
bent of his genius was disclosed early in
life. His tlrst lithographs were pro-
duced when he was only eleven
years of age. When he was fifteen his
eeries of sketches entitled "The Labors
of Hercules" was exhibited in Paris.
His earliest efforts as an artist yielded
him but a precarious income, made
chiefly by illustrating cheap books and
illustrated periodicals. In 1848 certain
qketches made by him in pen and ink,
were exhibited in the Salon. Paris. Six
years later his designs for "The Wander-
ing Jew" gave him a reputation in ether
countries oesides France. In the same
vear, 1854. lie produced the most power-
ful designs originated by him through-
out his whole career, namely, those for
Balzac's "Contcs Drolatlques." His
pictures illustrating Milton's "Paradise
Last" were made iti 18G5; in which and
the subsequent year, he illustrated the
Bible. In 1800 and the two subeequ«nt
rears, he illustrated Tennyson's "Idvls
of the King." "Christ Leaving the
Prajtorlum,'"a gigantic picture, was ex-
hibited at the Salon, l87t>; and in the
same year and place, his "Entrance of
Christ into Jerusalem." His last seven
years of the prodigious activity
which terminated only with his death,
were in part bestowed on the illustra-
tion of Shakespeare. The disease which
carried him on was intlamation of the
throat, the result of a severe cold.
The deceased artist lived a simple,
quiet life with his mother. He was a
bachelor, married, as he expressed it, to
liis mother and his art. He would face-
tiously ask his friends, when they spoke
of his' wifeless condition: "Must a man
be a Turk to prove that he is of a do-
mestic turn?" The two wivss he had
"were enough for him. He was a strong-
ly built, athletic man, and in his youth
excelled in feats of strength and agility.
His complexion and eyes were exceed-
ingly dark, and his hair raven black.
Visitors to his studio, which was the
best provided in all Paris, found him in
one of two contrasting moods—either
the frolicsome, frank, childlike Dore
who was irresistibly amiable, or a sat-
urnine, Aiorbld being, ashamed of him-
self and an atlllction to his friends. In
a review «f his life the necessity is to de-
plore the fact, that Dore's attainments
as an artist were vastly dlsproportioncd
to the originality, versatility and pawer
of his gen ins.

Bade me beware a glance they knew
Aimed hut to pierce hearts through and
To tease, torment and tantalize,—

But yield him to a charmed surprise?
Transfixed and torn this poor heart lies,
Too proud to plead, too scorned to sue :

The Elephant and the Practic al Joker.
The Rev. Mr. Watson gives a very cu-
rious story in illustration of this ani-
mal's wonderful long memery of a
wrong suffered. One of those pests of
' Bker," visited a
ngland fair and
tried his stupid tricks upon an elephant
there. He first doled out to it, one by
on6, some ginger bread nuts; and when
the grateful animal was thrown off Its
guard he suddenly proffered it a large
parcel wrapped in paper. The unsus-
picious creature accepted and swallowed
the lump, but immediately began to ex-
hibit signS of intense 'suffering, and
report on the
row. . Fred Wolffe telegraphs advices as
follows from New York: The reports
from Montgomery do me injustice. All
orders for cotton, either to buy or sell
for account of Vincent, were given to
my office in Montgomery, and from
there transmitted here for execution.
The margins were deposited there, and
my booKB there, whicn are open for in-
spection, will show every transaction.
S. M. Levin, T. L. Glerner and J. T.
Middleton. who have been in charge of
my office, will confirm this and any ad-
ditional Information. I have never had
any joint transactions in cotton or any-
thing else with Vincent, and never had
any money of his on loan in my
possession. Whenever a margin wois
required, he deposited money in Mont-
gomey, but never remitted any exchange
to me direct. I am informed he has
made considerable cotton transactions
through other houses in Montgomery,
and information required by the com-
mittee of Investigation will be cheerfully
tarnished by ay office at Montgomery,
'as well as here. On several occasions ne
bought exchange from banks in Mont-
gomery, In his own favor on New York,
for remittance to banks In New York to
interest on state bonds.
folffe telegraphs the governor In sim-
ilar terms, adding that T. L. Glerner,
who has charge of my office, was in-
structed to give you of the committee
ay information you wish. The books
re open to you and the committee.

stffciety, "a practical joker," visited a
caravan In a west of £i
snatching up a bucket, handed it to the
keeper for water. This being given to
it, it eagerly swallewed quantities of the
fluid. "Ha!" cried the delighted joker,
"I guess those nuts were a trifle hot, old
fellow." "You had better be ott," ex-
claimed the keeper, "unless you wish
the bucket at your head." The fool
took the hint just in time, for the en-
raged animal having finished the sixth
bucketful, hurled the bucket after its
tormentor with such force that, had he
lingered a moment longer, his life might
hnve been forfeited. The afi'air had not,
however, yet concluded. The following
year the snow visited the same town,
and the foolish joker, like men of his
genus. Unable to profit by experience,
thought to repeat his stupid trick on the
elephant. He took two lots of nuts into
the show with him—sweet nuts in the
one pocket and hot in the other. The
elephant had not forgotten the jest
played upon hiui.and therefore accepted
the cakes very cautiously. At last the
joker proffered a hot one, but no sooner
had the injured creature discovered its
pungency'than it seized hold of its per-
secutor by the coat-tails, hoisted hiui
up by theui, and held him until they
gave way, when he fell to the ground.
The elephant now inspected the severed
coat-tails, which, after he had discov-
ered and eaten all the sweet nuts, he
tore to rags and • flung them after their
discomfited owner.—[Chambers' Jour-
jEsthetics in Kentucky.
The trial of the Kentucky school trus-
tee for Incompetency, Immorality and
indecency of dress came efT near Louis
ville last week. The farmers for miles
around came to the trial. Norris is a
long, lank man of about fifty, and was
clad in a battered slouch hat, ragged
coat, dirty and patched trousers, a huge
pair of cowhide shoes, a new "store"
vest and a .tobacco-stained sliirt. Miss
Veazey, tlie school teacher, testified
that the first day she taught in the
school Norris slouched in without socks,
shoes, coat and vest, with trousers all
in rags and rolled te the knee, an old bat-
tered straw hat on, a minnow net on
one shoulder and a bucket of crawfish
in his hand. Squirting copious streams
of tobacco-juice on the floor he said,
pointing to the door: "Here, you get,
I don't want any dog-gone wimmin
teaching in this 'ere deestrick." Sim
"got," and the entire school with her.
I^orris said he hadn't drank any
whisky for six years, but had been
drunk on beer. "I don't swear, gamble
or break the Sabbath, and I can read,
write and calkelate," he said. Here he
was requested to write his name, which
was accomplished alter several minutes'
hard labor. "Now, sir, read that motto
on the wall and then write It," said the
court. "No, sir, I won't: I never got so
far as that. I dress well enough. I put
on a clean shirtevcry month, and I don't
wear store clothes." "How about the
charge that you wear only one suspen-
der?" This made Norris very angry, and
pounding the tabls he said: "It's a dirty
lie. I haint worn a suspender of any
kind fer mor'n twenty years." His
lawver said: "My friends, have you read
the Bible? Doesn't the Good Book say
that Peter and John went fishing bare-
foot, and with only a fig leaf to cover
their nakedness? Why, then, pursue this
poor, but noble-hearted man with your
maledictions?" Decision waB reserved.
Consecration of Dr. Thompson.
The Rev. Hugh Miller Thompson,
D.I)., having been officially notified of
the approval of the joint committees
and bishops of his election as assistant
bishop of Mississippi, has notified
Bishon Green In writing of his accent-
Arrangements have been made for the
consecration services, which will be sol-
emnized on Saturday, the 24th instant,
at Trinity church in this city. The
venerable Bishop Green, of Mississippi,
is expected to officiate. In the event of
bis not being able to do so his place will
be filled by Bishop Gregg, of Texas,
alternate. The consecration sermon
will be delivered by Bishop Wilmer, of
Alabama. Among the bishops who will
also be present are Bishop Galleher, of
Louisiana, and Bishop Pierce, of Arkan-
saw. Bishop Beckwfth, of Georgia,and
Bishop Harris, of Michigan, are also ex-
pected to be present, together with a
number of distinguished clergymen and
laymen of the cnurch. It Is a notable
fact that upon the consecration of Dr.
Thompson, on the day above named, all
the rectors of Trinity church will have
been created bishops, with the single
exception of the Rev. Dr. Dodge, the
tlrst pastor of the church, who fell a

Nothing is truer than the following
from Chambers Journal: "There is no
profession in which a man stands more
supremely on his merits than in that of
journalism. In many others promotion
'is more a question or influence, of good
fortune, or of time, thap of actual work-
ing capacity. In journalism, influence
goes for little or nothing, unless there
be on the part of tlie aspirant real effi-
ciency to perform the work that lias te
be done. There never was 'a greater
competition in the press than there is
at the present day, and that competition
is more likely to become keener than to
diminish. It is becoming more and
more a question of the survival of the
fittest, and special eminence is ever
more difficult to attain. The incompe-
tent und inexperienced, therefore, must
inevitably go to the wall."
In the newspaper business, distinc-
tion is won not by favor but by hard
work and a natural adaptation. In any
lifp which is strictly professional, a
man may be advanced through the
favoritism and by consulting associates
be able to hold his position,but in jour-
nalism no consultation will aid him. It
is the experience of yesterday that
helps him to-day. If he be employed
in the news department, lie must know
which article to condense and which to
extend. Some subjects which a "raw"
though well educated man would dilate
upon can be disposed of in ten lines,
while an occurrence which tlie student
would regard as trivial, a kind of five-
line occasion, would demand two col-
umns of "spread." Every experienced
newspaper man knows that there are
some subjects of which you cannot say
too little, while there are others of
which'too much cannot be said.
Several attempts have been made to
make the newspaper business profes-
sional. Colleges have added journal-
istic courses to their intellectual pro-
grammes, but in every instance failure
has resulted. It astonished the presi-
dents of the colleges that the professors
of Greek literature could not success-
fully instruct the young men how to
write an account of "how Mr. Gitson
knocked the liver out of Captain Slug,"
An Apt Retort.
Gossip at Harrisburg declares that
Adjutant General Guthrie owes his ap-
pointment not only to his fitness for the
pobt, but to his ready wit on one occa-
sion in conversationally outflanking
Governor Pattison. The latter gentle-
man had been expatiating on the high
moral tone that should distinguish his
staff, and then went "on to deplore the
fact that stall' officers were too often
prone to becotno hilarious in slaking
their thirst at social gatherings.
General Guthrie, who abuses the flow-
ing bowl neither by excess or by
abstinence, began to fidget, thinking
the chances of a favorable answer to the
suit lie had just been urging were grow-
ing unbeautifully less. Suddenly Mr.
Pattison wheeled about, fixed his
piercing black eyes upon the would-be
appointee, and demanded: "Do you
drink ?" In a burst of apt inspiration
the other replied, with serious polite-
ness: "Yes, but I don't care for any-
thing now, thank you." The governor
appreciated the point and made out the
coveted commission that very day.

How the Zulu Carries Elections.
An incident that happened lately at
an election in a Queensland sugar dis-
trict throws some light upon the ways
of the sugar kings. The election was a
close one, and tlie planters were doing
their utmost to return their candidate,
who was opposed by a business man,
for the township of the district. "D—n
you. sir," cried and excited planter to a
store keeper who was bold enough to
support the anti-planter candidate^
"didn't 1 bring my niggers to your store
and let you charge them what you liked
for your rubbish? And now you vote
against us!" "And you. sir." retorted
the unabashed store keeper, "what If
you did? Didn't I pay you 25 per cent
i'or doing it?" The accusation was not
denied.—Pall Mall Gazette.

Reproof and Rejoinder.
An elder of the kirk having found a
little boy and his sister playing marbles
on Sunday, put his reproof in tills form,
not a judicious one for a child: "Boy,
do you know where children go to
who"play marbles on the Sabbath uay?"
"Aye," said the boy, "they gang down
to the field by the water below the
brig." "No," roared out the,elder,
"they go to hell and arc burned." The
little fellow, really shocked, called to
his sister, "Come awal Jeanie, here's a
man swearing awfully."—Dean Ramsey.
