has got a runnin' hoss. Well, Bill hap
pened to mosey 'round where they was
camped, an' he looks at their poorest
hoss au' kinder grins inwardly an'
keeps down a laugh by tryin' mighty
hard, an' says he: 'Stranger, that air
hoss o' your'n looks 'a if he might have
some speed in him?' 'Ta-es,* says the
man, sorter sleepy and careless like
'he runs some.'
4Y' ever, put him on
the track?' asks Bill. 'Sometimes,
though he's gettin' pretty old,' says
the man. 'Would you mind havin' a
little race with an old horse o' mine?'
goes on Bill. 'greeable,' says the
man. So they went over to the track,
an' all the rest of us went 'long, o'
course. Bill's hoss come on so he
couldn't hardly hold him, head up an'
mouth open. The strange hoss looked
kinder sneakin' an' stood 'round with
one for'ard leg bent an' its head down
eatin' grass. I knowed Bill's hoss was
gom' to beat, an' most ev'rybody else
did. We bet all we could, though
there wa'n't nobody to bet with 'cept
the Granger's partner, an' he didn't
seem overly above anxious, though
he did take a few bots an' kinder *polo

what he would do that day. I'm darned
if he wasn't right, too."
"How was he light?"
"W'y, it was hard to tell what he
would do that day. Old Captain Bings
ley started 'em, an' Bill's hoss led right
off. The stranger pounded way on the
libs o' his'n, but he couldn't git no
motion onto him. Bill came in 'way
ahead, an' I'm a liar if we didn't see

an' set on his hoss an' let him cat

was doing the bettin', acted a sight
diflTrent. He got hoppin' mid, an'
oaid he'd bet anyhow if he did lose.
We heered the man what rode the hoss
tellin' him not to do it, cos' Bill's hoss
were better than they thought, but he
said he didn't give a durn, he'd bet
anyhow. So we all bet with him, givin'
him big odits, so his money would go
urder an' we all could have a whack at
it But he 'peared to have an uncom

an' takin' ev'ry bet offered. I'll be

got ready to start again. The
stranger hadn't been off his hoss at
all, but had set there chowin' terbacker

nobody had another cent. Jos' then

fact that the two eyes of the animal

Bis Dogi Employed to Chase Bunsnvay
i Prisoner* ia Alabama.
There is something besides moral
suasion and good treatment on which
the lessees of the convicts at Pratt
mines rely to maintain the safe-keep
ing of their seven hundred prisoners.
With only a high fence between the
convicts and the woods with all the
chances of escaping the bullets from a
a single rifle in a break for liberty, it
seems strange that more attempts are
not made. The explanation is found
in the presence of the big-legged, long
eared yellow hounds which lie about
the stockade. The Pratt mines people
pride themselves on having the finest
trailers in the State if not In the entire
South. One man's time is taken in
breeding and training, and the strain
is maintained in all its purity. These
dogs loaf about the stockade yard,
mingling with theconvicts. They are
on the best terms in the world with
them. Every one of these men in
stripes might walk out of prison and
the trailers would only beat their tails
approvingly upon the ground and look
a dog's good-bye. There isn't any
thing of the watch-dog instinct about
them. They are utterly worthless,
save for one thing. They are as friend
ly to the stranger as to the man that
feeds them. They lie in the shade and
sleep and eat. They do not even fight
among themselves. But let them be
called out and the trail be given them.
It matters not whose trail it is.
In this connection Mr. Simmons tells
some interesting things about follow
ing the hounds. He has had years of
experience. "The only difficulty," he
says, "is in the first two hundred yards
of the chase. It seems to take that dis
tance for the dogs to get the scent
fixed. If we put the dogs on a trail, and
before they have covered the two hun
dred yards they come to where somebody
has crossed the course of the one we
are following, there is danger that they
will leave the right trail and go after the
wrong person. But when the first two
hundred yards have been covered the
chase is pretty sure. It doesn't matter
then whether many persons have
crossed the path of the prisoner the
dogs follow the scent without any
doubt. As they run their blood warms
up p,nd they grow surer."
Mr. Simmons was asked about the
various devices adopted to throw the
dogs off the scent. "Dogs of pure
breed and good training," he replied,
"it is almost impossible to throw off.
Dragging a brush behind will not do it.
I have trailed men through tunning
water, and even on horseback. Ono of
the very few cases I have known of
getting away was where the prisoner
jumped into a wagon. This threw the
dogs off. We have, trailed prisoners
right into and through the streets oi
Birmingham. That, of course, is hard.
Hundreds of people may have tramped
over the ground after the convict ha8
passed. On the dirt roads of the coun
try the trail is easily followed, and in
the woods it is impossible to get away.
We ran a negro through a big swamp
one time. He got on a mule and rode
nine miles, then got off and ran, but
the dogs followed the trail without a
"The scent which the dogs follow
must be in the feet," Mr. Simmons said
in reply to another question. "Aftsr
that negro I have just spoken of got on
the mule the dogs kept hia trial by
jumping up and smelling the bushes
where his feet touched as he rode along.
Changing shoes doesn't help a man
any. The dogs are not thrown off by
that trick. The bigger ears they have
the truer they are on the trail. When
they have run awhile they get hot and
mad. If they overtake a convict then
they will do him harm."
"It is claimed in some of the Georgia
camps that the hounds don't bitethat
they only bay when they come up with
the convict," was suggested.
"That isn't true with the pure breed
of trailers. They will take hold if they
come on the man while they are hot,
and will tear him. The bites make bad
wounds they are very apt to fester.
When we start the dogs out we follow
them just as hard as we can, to see that
they don't injure the convicts. Usually
he takes to a tree. When we come up
we drive the dogs back. As soon as
they cool off a little they are entirely
Hanging up in the stockade yard is a
queer-looking object. At a little dis
tance it might be taken for a bundle ol
life preservers. It is a heavily padded
suit of clothes. Once a week, or possi
bly a little oftener, a convict is dressed
in the padded suit and told to go. Ho
ia given a two-hours' start usually.
Then the dogs are led out and shown
the trail. Away they go, twelve or
fifteen in the pack, the older hounds in
front and the pups behind, every one
of them yelping. This is dead earnest
work for the dogs, but, of course, a
game of "hare and hounds" for the
trusty in the padded suit, and a farce
for the officials who ride to the point
previously agreed upon for the chase to
end. Practice has reduced the chance
for escape from the dogs to consider
ably less than one in ten, and the
knowledge of this on Jho part of the
convicts renders them little inclined to
make the effort. The dogs at Pratt
mines are more feared*than the guards
"How fast will the dogs get over
ground on the trail?" Mr. Simmons was
"The other day," he "replied, "we
started a convict out and appointed a
place about six miles distant where he
was to take to a tree when the dogs
were uncomfortably near. The negro
traveled for two hours, doubling and
trying various tricks to confuse the
dogs. Then we put the dogs on the
trail and rode direct to the place where
the chase was to end. We went about
as fast as we wanted to ride. When
we got to the tree which the negro had
climbed the dogs were there, having
gone over all the ground he had covered
in the two hours. They must have run
it at less than four minutes to the mile.
When we start out in earnest to trail a
convict it takes hard riding to keep
anywhere near the dogs."S*. Louts

The Noble Womanhood Into Which They

Nice as most girls are, they are not all
of the kind to make matrimony a state
of bliss and husbands content with
their lot. For in this thickly-thronged
field of girlhood are the peevish and the
contradictious, the selfish and the ex
travagant, the idle and the careless, the
jealous and the unloving, the stupid and
the obstinate, the flirts who encourage
unseemly attentions, and the future
mothers who will think their children
so many hindrances to pleasure, and
who will not have in their hearts either
human love or animal instinct for their
young. The heaven is not always all
pure blueflowers are not all perfect
and fragrant and humanity is like the
rest of naturewhen beautiful and love
worthy, then most delightfulwhen
hacked and seamed and marred, then
not by any means delightful! But on
the whole the choice girls far outnum

elders of the generation may not like
this new folly and that fresh affectation
but those elders must remember that
each new generation makes its own
shibboleths, has its own fashions, and
that youth must needs-be foolish, else it

Color Blindness in Germany.
Some interesting results have been
yielded by an extensive investigation
into the prevalence of color blind
ness on German railways. The inquiry
which lasted several yearsthe latest
data having been obtained on July 1,
1886was attended to seventy-nine
railways. Of 104,743 persons tested
from April 1, 1882, to Julyl, 1886, 850,
or .81 per cent, were found to be color
blind. Of 239,726 person* tested up to
July of last year, 1,934, or .81 per cent,
were color blind, while of 145,456 of
ficers and servants employed on the
seventy-nine railways on July 1, 1886
100 were entirely and 441 partially
color blind, a percentage of .37. The
methods of testing were chiefly the Stil
ling method (by means of color plates)
and the Holmgren method (by means
of colored woolen threads) but the
Daae, Cohn, Schmidt and. Simpler
methods were also adopted. In 16,201
cases the test was repeated, and 305
times did the results differ from former
.results. The officials of German rail
ways who are color blind have been
given duties in the discharge of which
their incapacity can have no ill result,
so that there is no danger in their con
tinued employmentPall Matt QazttU.

The origin ol the word cigar is of
some interest and is not to. be found in
the ordinary dictionaries The word,
of course, is Spanish, and Littre in his
French dictionary says that it is derived
from cigarra, the Spanish name for
grasshopper. When the Spaniards first
introduced tobacco into Spain from the
Island of Cuba, in the sixteenth century,
they cultivated the plant in their gar
dens, which in Spanish are called1
cigarrales. Each grew his tobacco in
his cigarral and rolled it up for smoking,
as he had. learned from the Indians in?
the West Indies. When one offered a
smoke to a friend he could say: "Es de
mi ciggaral"It is from my garden.
Soon the expression came to be. "Este
cigarroes de mi cigarral"this cigar,is
from my garden. And from this the
word cigar spread over the world. The
name cigarral for garden comes from
cigarra, a grasshopper, that insect
being very common in Spain, and
cigarral meaning the place where the
cigarra sings. In this way the word
cigar comes from cigarra, the name of
the insect, not because it resembles the
body of the grasshopper, but because it
was grown in the place it frequents.
