The question was asked in my pres ence by a fair young girl wnosp knowledge of restaurante was ton fined to Dclnionico's and the Savarin. with, perhaps, an occasional dinner ut the Brunswick. Her companion proceed ed to explain. He was u clover writer on a morning paper, and had been do ing newspaper work for a number of years. IIo had experienced the usual ups and downs of such a life, and al though he is now making a haiid.sonio income, ho clings to his bohemian habits, and haunts certain restaurants where lie is sure of linding some con genial friend with whom he can enjoy his dinner and bottle of wine. Some what amused at this unless question from a woman not many years young er than himself, he proceeded to ex plain thut such a restaurant would probably not be found on Fifth avenuo, and his"fuvorite haunts were not even on Broadway. When she had fully di gested this ho further remarked that he had never met any of the so-called "four Hundred" at any of these places. Slio was curious to know in what street such delectable resorts were located, and what class of peoplo frequented them. Ho must havodrawn an attractive picture, for she expressed a desire to penetrate into ono of them a desire so eager that tie was com pelled to prop n so that it should bo gra tilled. And so, a few nights later, the bo hemian habitues of a certain little, basemcut restaurant, in an u ifashkm able street downtown, were startled by the apppearnnco of a group of ten gay men and women, who occupied the Inrgcst tablo and hud the iolliest time of any group assembled there. The men wore even ing dress, and the girls anil their chaperone woro gay dresses and new spring bonnets. Of course, a little something extra was ordered for the dinner by the enterprising newspaper man, anil it wus voted nn exceedingly good dinner. New York Star. Chinese Uorrora. Tho Peking Gazette 'jives a horrible story from ttio olliciul report of tho governor of Yunnan of tiio burningto death of a farmer of that iirovinco for stealing an ear of com. It seems that (luring- tho Yunnan rebellion a law was passed junking thefts of corn fruits in tho field an olfunso puiiish- nblo py burning to death, the vic tim's relatives were required to sign a document declaring they agreed to the penalty, and woro torced to iglt tho lire to oar them from bringing a dum- ago suit. Tins horrible praotico tho authorities havo tried to extirpate, but vuinly. A tew months ago in liar vest tuno, a farmer named Pentf Cltuo Slieng, while going to watch his field, iluckeu an ear oi corn from a neigti lor's field. IIo was seen and being shouted at dropped the corn. The matter was referred to tho owner of tho Held, and he, with his tenant. seized Peng aiitl demanded the death penalty.

Brown, coiled a dead suako in a newspaper, so us to bo easily cupauio oi coming iooso, unu set it on tlio floor of a cago containing a flrreat variety of monkeys. It was instantly carried off by a leading spirit, but in a few seconds tho paper becamo unfolded and tho snake wilscx poscd. Tho monkey instantly dropped Ft and went awny, but with a constant look behind. Thoother monkeys, per coiving tho snake, approached step by step and formed a circle around it six or eicht feet in diameter. None np- proached it except one Macaque, who cautiously mauo some snaicnes ai me paper.
