What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The Way» of the Czar. The czar’s daily habits of life are those of a pope rather than of a secular monarch, his relaxations those of a prisoner rather than of a potentate# When residing at Gatcbino he generally rises at seven a. m., whereas few noble men in the capital leave their beds much before midday, and I am personally acquainted with two who rise with the regularity of cluckwoik at three o’clock everyday. He then lakes a quiet stroll in the unteresliug well watched palace park, returns to early breakfast and engages in severe manuel labor as prepara­ tion for the official work of the day. The latter consists mainly in the reading and signing of enor mous piles of edicts, ukases and reports, all of which he consci­ entiously endeavors to under stand. Upon the margins of these documents he writes his decision or his impressions with a frank ness and abandon which laughs prudence and propriety to scorn. Those who maintain that the he is kept in complete or even par tial ignorance of the cruel mens ures adopted in iiis name, or else rhat his boasted love of his pe ople is but the varni.-h of hypocrisy, are as much astray in the matter of fact as in their appreciation. Cold blooded cru« ltv or savage hatred is not the coriect mannei of the motives that inspired the slaugter of the Amalekites by Saul, or the autos da fe ot Aibne.* de Epila, and it shon'd not be for «.o ton that there is a moral ail men! cnlhd a false conscience,the tff< ct of which is lo poison the ac tic n with* ut v tiating its source. •*M. n iu ver do wrong so thor i nghly ,ii'd •«> elmerfuUy.” says u . l L ij „it obi^iug the promptings of a false principle of conscience.” To fancy, therefore, as many English optimists do, that em peror needs only to be informed of the facts iu order to repeal the cruel laws and remodel the system of government which is ruining his people is as reasonable as to delude one’s self with the pleasing notion that an illiterate peasant needs but a pair of spectacles in order to enable him to read his Bible.—The Contemporary Re view. > O » . .......... W h y Dog» Cau’fc l alk. Why oaek in some old book there is a story of how the dogs used to be in those days when they could talk, and wore men’s advisers. One day a great prince metabeauiifu Woman, and de spite the advice ot the dog wh«» was his counsellor, he married her, and he made her cousin, a begger, his prime minister. Amid the festivi ies the dog warned his prince to watch the woman; told him that she was unfaithful; that her cousin was her lover, and that between them they would rob the kingdom and drive the prince trom his throne. He turned on the dog and cuised him; cursed him so that his dog friend, look­ ing at him, said; “ Until men are grateful and women are faithful, I and my kind will sever speak again.” And it came about as predicted, and when the prince was a beggar, his companion and consolation was a dog whose eves told the story of love and fidelity; but who never 8 iid one Word with his lips. And as the world has grown o der the dogs aie al; mutt; for men have grown no more grateful than in the days when they could talk. Til NVw-pap-r ••A*!’*do* - it A l l .

Nothing M o re Nor Jess than the Ordinary Breezes From the West. Iu the event of a ohinook which Borne o f the weather prophets are expecting hereabouts very slioit ly, the following description of that mysterious thawer from th© Seattle Post-Inlelligencer may prove interesting; h There is only ode impression re. spect ing the chi nook wind which I think it would be well to correct, and that is that it is a wind pecul* iar to this part o f the world. It is only characteristic in this region in its greater prevalence and its more distinctly traceable and widespread effects. I might add that it also has a peculiar name here, but it is nothing more and nothing less than the west wind o f the world—the west wiud that Virgifso ofien refers to, ihe wind that Homer describes in the 0 lyssey as blowing soft fiom the ocean upon those fabled islands where winter is not, nor any burn-* ing summer heat. It is also 'no­ ticed by Longfellow as descending upon the coast of Norway, and be and other writers of prose - and poetry have often noted it in de* scriplions of New England. f ’wa* familiar with it in my early life in the Connecticut valley, and when 1 first felt it on the Columbia I recognized it as an old acquaint* ance. Whence it comes or whither it goes is to a certain extent myster­ ious, but it belongs to no onequar* ter of the globe. It is more dis­ tinctive of this region, I believe, than of any otimr. It is many more times more abundant and prevalent here than on the Allan* tic coa-d or in the interior of this country. But I think I am not mi.staken in saying that we are favored beyond many other parti only in having more o f it. Sweep* mg in from ihe west in these lati* ludes, it gives Eastern Washing­ ton ami Montana an earlier spriug limn Minnesota, and it is not ex­ hausted entirely in crossing the continent, but touches the New England hills and valleys to un* lock (lie rigors ol winter still later I here. ____________________ A Knowiutf Lion# A female lion lamer, young and fair, beckoned to the big lion, Nero, aiul it came and took % piece of sugar out of her mouth. “ Why, I could do that trick,M exelaiined a spectator. _ . “ What, you?” retorted the fair performer. ^ ' “ Certainly—just as well ris thf. hold —Revue des &port6.
