been stated that

not to mention the fact tliat anything
like intrigue is quite beyond Cockran.
He is an orator, a gentleman and a
democrat. Anybody who expects, there

obstructive tactics inaugurated by Mr.
Cockran, of New York, will be disap
pointed. Never, perhaps, did a con

Tammanj-'s policy, it can be stated on
Ike authority of Mayor Gilroy, is to
repeal the silver law, to fight for tariff

If young Elliott F.Shcpard is really to
bc put into Uncle Sam's navy, as rc-
porte'd the other day, many friends of
the Shepard famity will be intensely
astonished. Certainly there is nothing
in the life and surroundings of this
millionaire in his teens to warrant any
such statement, and a near friend of
the family says Elliott will not bo
made a sailor, and no one ever thought
of doing so. The young man pursues
Jiis studies in a disjointed way now,
owing to the holidays, butthisautumn
there will be work cut out for him.
His education is planned on an elabor
ate t.cale. Languages, music, mathe
matics and art are all to be mastered,
t rather studied, by this heir to
a great name. nis pleasures are
horseback rides, boating and sports.
His health is a trifle delicato and his
pergonal appearance would not com
mand much attention were it not for a
quiet, gentlemanly manner beyond his
yars and a pleasant, deft way of say
ipg clever things. Tho boy promises
o grow into a clever man, with all his
father's good, generous qualities, but
without his headstrong will and rugged
obstinacy. Young Shepard is surpris
ingly well educated, for very few of
Jfew York's upper ten are educated in
the senso that poorer people under
stand the term. The wealthy and
pocially prominent New Yorkers spend
too much money in educating their
children to achieve satisfactory results,
cut fortunately for young Elliott lie
lias the benefit of George W. Vander
bilt's counsel and supervision. Mr.
"Vanderbilt has nothing of tho peda
gogue or pedant about him and his
easy way of swinging a heavy dumb
bell and handling an intricate aorist as
if both were mere feathers, would fire
the (emulation of youth. Altogether
no one has reason to think that Elliott
P. Shepard will become a United States

some paragraph raking up the past ap
pears and is sent, marked, to friends
of Gebhard. The dirty trick is more
annoying because the perpetrator of it
is careful to preserve anon3mity. As
a matter of fact there exists a great
misapprehension in the public mind
regarding Mr. Gebhard. A man of
great physical strength, he is very gen
tle. Well educated and aristocratic,
he never puts on airs and is affable
with everybody. He is a temperate,
quiet, good-humored fellow now,
whatever he may have been, and pos
sessed of great shrewdness. When
ever he invests his own money the re
sult is highly advantageous to him
self pecuniarily, and, considering his
means, he is not an extravagant liver.
Perhaps time alone can tell how true is
the report that Gebhard will adopt a
public career that is, not necessarily
seek public office, but help along such
political reforms as are needed. As an
orator Gebhard, with his strong, agree
able voice and splendid address, would
be a success.

This unique project, he says, is quite
feasible. A special train would cost
very little, and New York could send

certainly be one of the oddest train
loads of passengers that ever journeyed
between the two cities. It is highly
unlikely, however, that the scheme
will be carried out. From a purely su

This Vroz Welshed a Ton.
The labyrinthodon, a huge creature
resembling a toad or frog, and which
lived in tho earlier periods of our
planet's history, has recently been
found in a surprising state of preser
vation in the marl beds of lluezel
weitz, Hungar All species of this
gigantic frog are now extinct and are
known to the naturalists only through
the investigations of the geologists,
who have often found parts or entire
fossils of the monster in strata of the
trlassie portion of the mesozoic period.
Southwick mentions in a three-line
entry in his "Quizzism and Key," un
der the head "A Frog as Largo as an
Ox," and in Burnett's "Geological
Epochs" it is considered in a chapter
on "Huge Frog-Like Creatures of the
Mcsozotic Age." Tho specimen un
earthed in the Hungarian marl bed is
entire, with tho exception of the left
fore-arm and the lower jaw. The
skull measures eighteen inches be
tween the eye sockets and weighs ex
clusive of the missing under jaw, threo
hundred and twelve pounds. The
bones which have been discovered up
to date (and there is still hopes of
finding the missing parts), with the
adhering matrix, weigh eighteen hun

THE WORD "ROORBACK."
Carious History of Its Introduction Into
Oar Political Vocabulary.
The word "roorback," which bobs
np toward the end of most political
campaigns in connection with the nail
ing of opposition lies, has a curious
origin. Nathan Guilford, once a well
known citizen of Cincinnati, was an
active whig politician and editor of an
energetic whig paper. On April 1 of a
certain year he published a circum
stantial account of experiments by a
German chemist named Roorback.
Roorback had been examining the
chemical constituents of eggs of differ
ent birds, supposing it might bo possi
ble at last to compound a hatchable
egg. According to the story, after
putting many of his manufactured
eggs to the animal heat of different
patient mothers, he at last happily suc
ceeded in hatching ono egg, and pro
duced a living bird. The story then
goes on to describe very minutely the
strange creature, anatomically, physi
ologically, and every other way, imi
tating the scientific stylo used in simi
lar cases. The story read very well,
and was copied into many other pa
pers, and after going the rounds of the
press in all parts of the United States
it was at last (after three or four
months) discovered to have been first
published on the 1st of April. The
Enquirer of that city immediately
fixed upon Father Guilford the name
of Roorback, which was thereafter
held to mean a political liar, although
the story had nothing to do with poli
tics. Being well stuck to, tho name
became at last pretty well fixed, and
Mr. Guilford was for many years well
known in the political field as Old
FROM THE "PACIFIC JOURNAL."
"A great invention lias been made by Dr.
Tutt. Tliat eminent chemist has produced
which imitates nature to perfection; it acta

JTost people suppose that those luck
less wretches who take refuge in the
casual wards of workhouses have a
rather good time of it at the expense
of the rate payers. Nothing could be
further removed from fact. Some
unions and their officials treat "casu
als" better than do others, but "bad is
the best.' and, as a rule, London
unions rank worse than country ones,
St. Giles being the very worst of all,

poor, but of the rates in that parish im
pose upon casuals a task of stone break
ing which no able-bodied man. no mat
ter how powerful or skillful and there
is skill or "knack" in stone breaking,
as in other things could possibly per
form in the time allotted, says the Pall
Mall Gazette. Hence, as failure to
perform the task means being charged
at Bow street as a "refractory pauper,"
and as magistrates never, or hardly
ever, believe aught the accused
"casual" says, a night's lodging in the
Macklin street. Drury Lane, "Bastille,"
usually means a month's hard labor in
Pentonville prison to follow. The
casual ward of the parish of St. Ursula
is not far from a main thoroughfare
and is not open until eight p. ra. On
the occasion when fate caused me to
seek its shelter I had about thirty com
panions in misery all ragged, all
dirty and all down at heel. We were
hustled into a large room, which had,
of course, that harsh and chilling
aspect common to all workhouses.

"So I should think," grunted Bully,
and made an entry of some kind.
"Where did you sleep last night?"
"Nowhere!" repeated Bully. "Ain't
you a-going back to ther same place?"
"Where are you going to?"
"Anywhere! Here, that won't do for
me. You must say where you're going,

wit. Snooks muttered something and
Bully wrote it down.
"Have yer got any money?"
"Then take everything out of yer
pockets and pitch 'em into that basket,"
pointing to one close by. And so went
on the examination.
At last came my turn. Bully, who
was evidently not a bad judge of men,
at once discovered that I did not be
long to the habitual tramp brigade;
and accordingly, in order to aggravate
me. put an additional question viz:
"Arc you a good hand at picking
"Well, that's all right. You'll have
a good spell of it to-morrow."
Now came the food. A regular
pauper, or inmate, entered, carrying
a wooden tray upon which were slices
of bread, and each casual was ordered
to take one slice. This was our sup
per. Having eaten it, we were marched
into a shed and were told to undress.
Then each man had to walk across a
courtyard and plunge into a bath of
water. The one supply of water did
for the whole crowd (at some provin
cial unions, notably ilelton Mowbray
and Northampton, the same uncleanly
kind of cleanliness prevails), and soap
there was not. Next we were marched
into the dormitorv. which is simply a
brick-floored shed like a barn, along j
the sides of which were ranged rows i
of what looked like shallow cofnns, j
bnt which I, from previous experience j
gained at the Salvation Army sal rage J
wharf at Battersea, knew to be sleep- j

Quickly we dressed and then marched
out into the yard. Some of the men
were selected as cleaners, others ag
stone breakers and others as oakum
pickers. I was among the last. Each
man was handed a bundle of short
pieces of tarry rope, almost as hard as
iron. These were to be unraveled into
spun yarn almost as fine as iloss sillc
There was a time when such a task
would have seemed to me impossible.
But practice and experience, if they do
not make perfect, at least teach one
even to pick oakum, and by the aid of
the worn heel tip of my boot I man
aged to achieve my task in the course
of the day.
For dinner wc were served out six
ounces of bread and one and a quarter
ounces of moldy cheese; for supper,
the same as for breakfast. Then wo
were marched off to "bed" (?). At six

The Chinese I'crttal System.
The Chinese have no governmental
postal system, and letters arc trans
ported by means of so-called "letter
shops." These arc somewhat like our
express business, as packages are alio
sent, and both letters and packages
are insured and registered, and charges
are in proportion to the distance to be
carried. There are said to be nearly
200 of these letter-shops in Shanghai
alone, which send out employ to
work up custom. TorcigTi letters aro
conveyed from China to other countries,
by the postal system of the latter, con
suls being considered as postmasters
for their own countries.
rnnl.hlnr a Murderer.
If a man commits a murder in Tun
gora none of the natives will deSle
their hands or weapons by killing him.
He is supposed to be haunted by the
spirit of his victim until he goes mad
and kills himself, but as a matter of
fact the priests capture and strangle
him unknown to the rest of the com
munity. The thongs with which the
wretch's life is squeezed oatofhis body
are then burnt before the image of Kali
and the ashes crammed into the dead
man's mouth, by this means purifying

In rome villages in Japan robber

ruler of tho hamlet summons the cn-t
tire male population and request4
them to write on a slip of paper tha
name of the person they suspect aV
having committed the crime. The on
receiving the largest number of ballots
is declared duly "elected," and is ac
cordingly hung. This system, Iflces all
others, has Its peculiar advantages. Itf
insures the punishment of &ornolodj'
for every crime committed, whcrean
under the syfitem in vogue in most civ
ilized countries in nine carcs out of
ten no punishment is inflicted on any
body for tho crime. Of course, they,
may not "elect" the guilty person, bub
dispose of some other charactf-r equally,
as bad. There is much in the tytuV
to commend it to other nations.
