Undo Sam Was Taken In for Onco.
"Yes, that is ono of tho old stars and bars,"
said County Register Eamondson, as he held
up a nickel bearing the date of 1866. "Gen
eral W. J. Smith tells with evident pleasure
tho story concerning the design of that coin.
Thero was a call made for a new pattern for
nickels. Among the many was one rather
more attractive than the others. Where, now,
are tho words 'United States of America, 5
cents,' thl6"now design had stars and bars alter
nating, first a star and then four parallel lines.
The designer was an employe of tho mint at
Philadelphia, I think, and was an expert In
his business. His design was accepted, and
sonio 5300,000 worth of nickels coined. Ono
day the artist, who was and is an unrecon
structed rebel, got drunk and said the reason
ho formulated that design was to perpetuate
and keep floating the old flat: of tho Confed
eracy tho stars and bars. Ho lost his job,
and tho nickels were recalled, but a few of
them aro still floating around."

A SWEET REVENGE.
Hotr Two Jealous Snuimor Girls Got Even
With uUut cd Rlvnl.
Tho summor girl is supposed to bo a sweet,
confiding sort of creature, ontlroly devoid of
malice. But ono young man In a trio of sum
mer girls will engondor enough mallco to ren
der his llfo and that of ono of tho girls per
fectly miserable, unless ho is very skillful. At
least such was tho caso with a quartetto who
arrived in Pittsburg on tho fast lino tho othor
evening. Thoy had been up to the mountains
for a couplo of weeks, and, as Is natural, tho
young gentleman In that time had discovered
an affinity In ono of tho fcmlnlno trio, and had
not hesitated to show it. "Whcu thov boarded
the train tho Apollo for such, lndcc'd, ho was
Identified hlmsolf prominently with tho com
fort of tho ono young lady, to tho neglect of
tho othor two, so they thought, and thoy Im
mediately took their rovongo by conversing
loud enough for those in tho adjoining seats
to hoar about tho lovely wedding presents tho
young couplo received. Tho silver service by
Aunt Mary, the punch bowl by Cousin Hattle,
tho china dinner sot by uncle, and tho gener
ous check by the bride's fathor, wore, with
other details about tho wedding, discussed at
length, while tho young folks ahead, uncon
scious of tho whole, were all attention to each
Finally they began to notice queer glances
cast in their direction by tho other passengers,
and in timo tho train employes seemed to be
especially Interested in them. Slowly but
gradually tho truth dawned upon them, inas
much as thoy realized that they wero being
taken forbrldo and groom. It was exceed
ingly embarrassing to both, and tho more thoy
tried to bo circumspect and regain thnir wonted
composure tho more amusing it was to tho
passengers. Tho young lady's faca was the
color of scarlet; the young gentleman's a trlflo
ruddier, if possible, and thoy both spent a
most uncomfortablo time until this city was
reached. Some way it leaked out that tho two
girls had been instrumental in the affair, and
no all communication has ceased between
the opposing parties.
An Odor That "Was Frightful.
An odor has been found so frightful that
the discoverers have been obliged to abandon
Its preparation. MM. Bauman and Fromm,
In experimenting at Freiburg, in Brisgau,
upon tho organic sulphur derivatives, caused
hydrogen sulphide to act upon acetone, and
obtained besides trlthioacotone, small quanti
ties of a definite compound non-violatilo and
crystalline, C15 H2SS4. At tho same time
thero is found a very volatile body, having
such a horrible odor that ethylmercaptan,
ethyleno-mercaptan, aud other volatile sul
phur compounds are perfumes compared
with It. Tho dlscoverers'have not been able
to obtain this compound in a pure state, but
they do not doubt that it is monosulphuretted
acetine, Co H6 S. As they were ono day dis
tilling tho product of the reaction of 100 grams
of acetone with hydrochloric acid and hydro
gen sulphide, with a very perfect arrangement
for Its condensation, and avoiding a sensible
loss of the products of the reaction, the at
mosphere of the whole surrounding district
of the city was contaminated within a radius
of 700 metres. Every effort to obtain this
substance in a pure stni e raised such a tempest
of protestations and complaints against the
laboratory that the experimentor6 were
obliged to discontinue their researches.
From Father to Son.
Color blindness is a condition which is cer
tainly capable of transmission to tho progeny.
In one family the males alono wore affected
through seven generations. Deaf-mutcism is
likewise handed down from parent to child,
while It has been clearly ascertained that the
chances of tho children being deaf Is almost
seven times greater when both parents aro
affected than when only one exhibits the ail
ment. More curious still, perhaps, are thoso
cases In which we find that which haB been
called tho hemorrhagic (or bleeding) habit
transmitted for generations. Here, owing
probably to some structural weakness In tho
blood vessels, bleedlnc, oven of a slight char
acter, is with difficulty arrested. As regards
the appearance of this condition in tho off
spring, it may bo added that in ono case
which was thoroughly Investigated, three out
of four males oxhlblted this condition in ono
generation, thirteen out of fourteen males
showed this constitution in the noxt, whllo
only ono out of nine males was affscted in the
I.OH8 of Sleep Makes Him Stuttor
Thero is a peculiar coincidence about tho
two biggest circuses is in this country Barnum
& Bailey's and Forepauch's. Both have tho
most experienced press agents in the country.
Thoy aro both well known and full of fun.
The coincidence, however, lies in tho fact
that both are addicted to stammering. Davis,
who is with Foropaugh, holds that Porley
who in with Barnum & Bailey, stutters worse
than ho does, while Perloy says that Davis
out-stutters any man on e&rth. Thoy have
plenty of fun over tho defect In their speech,
and aro not at all sensltlvo regarding it. Mr.
Perloy has discovered that an outdoor life
with plenty of sleep helps him materially to
overcome his stuttering. He says that if ho
misses a good night's rest or, for any reason
his slumber is disturbed or cut short, ho will
stammer woefully next day, but if ho gets
eight hours sound sleep each night, his stut
tering is scarcely perceptible.
