"Gin Me Dot Word Agin."
Little Hock Ouzptto.
Old Zeb Wilson came to the city yes
terday, and entering a book store, said:
"Is yer got any Injun books heahV"
The clerk handed him down several
yellow covered collections of thrilling
escapes. The old man examined them
"I want one ob deso licali pizen books.
Gimmy one what tells ob blood from de
fust word 1"
"Here's a bad one," said tho clerk, as
he handed down "Savage Eyed Nat, or
tho Slasher of the Prairies."
"Do hit tell 'bout men hab been tore
all ter pieces?", asked the old man.
"Yes, together with wolves and
"Gib me one wid a hornet's sting in
every word. Do dc champion in dis
book get cotched an' den get away ?"
"Yes, his escapes are marvelous."
"Yas; well, jist gin me one what de
champion gits snake bit, steals a gal,
chokes a wolf to death an' hits his
school teacher with a rotten aig. Yer
can't get nuthin' too pizen for a nigger
ob my understandin'!"
"Why do you want such poison books,
old man ? If you have a family I should
think that you would like to spread a
better class of literature before them."
"Bar's wliar you miss hit. Bar's

series of observations on the manner in
which various drinks act on different
parts of the cerebrospinal system which
preside over locomotion. He says that
"if a man partake of too large a quan
tity of good sound wine or malt liquor
he usually staggers about from side to
side, his gait is very unsteady, and if he
comes to grief or to mother earth he
generally Vails from one side or the
other. If he takes too much whisky,
especially the abomination which gees
by the name of Irish whisky, he is al
most certain to be seized with an irre
sistible impulse to fall forward on his
face. If he get drunk on cider oi per
ry, the latter especially, he is certain to
fall down suddenly on his back and ap
parently without any previous warning.
He once saw a number of men who
had made too merry at a harvest feast,
all fall down again and again in the
same manner. He had never witnessed
anything of the kind before, and was;
not a little amazed as well as amused.
The farmer, who was a very shrew t
Herefordshire man, told him that was
the effect invariably produced by perry,
of which his men had that day partaken
liberally. He has since that time seen
several isolated cases which have cor
roborated the farmer's version of the
action of the overdose of perry or ci
der." Mr. Shortjiouse's researches, unhap
pily, have not been conducted with suf
ficient precision, nor have they extended
over a sufficiently wide field. American
investigators could have informed him
that not only do different drinks affect
men in various ways, but the effects
differ according to the quantity of tho
beverage imbibed. Thus, while four
fingers of the whisky peculiar to cheap
saloons will cause tlte subject violently
to invert other people, a dose of four
teen fingers will lead him peacefully to
invert himself. The gin of similar re
sorts, which is not distinguishable
from the ordinary turpentine of com
merce, produces pedal entanglements
and precipitations upon the bridge of
the nose, a fact observed by the psalm
ist, who made allusion to the relation to
the feet to the gin. The rum of these
places invariably induces pedestrian ex
ercise upon the ear, the white Medford
variety leading 'the subject invariably
to walk off on tho ear, while old Jamacia
as invariably inspires his right ear with
locomotive powers. The brandy of
these resorts is as instantaneous and
overwhelming in its effects as a thunder-bolt,
and the victim avIio partakes
of it at once sinks down on every por
tion of himself simultaneously. As for
the wines, their action is quite differ
ent. Instead of flooring the subject,
they impel him to wander over the face
of the earth and never sit or fall
down, though his path be strewn with
banana-peels and lie along string-pieces
of dock. Altogether, Dr. Shorthouso
can find a far more fertile field for in
vestigation in these United States than
is open to him in England, even with
out making inquiry into the more ab
struse and complicated beverages of
the Great West, like the far-famed
shepherd's delight of Nevada, one drink
of which fascinating fluid moves the as
similator to steal his own sheep and
hide them in the remote sage brush
from his own pursuit.

Mr. Gladstone on the Irish Troubles.
A London telegram of the 9th says:
Some 900 guests were present at the
lord mayor's banquet to-night. Mr.
Gladstone, who was among the number,
was looking very poorly. Tho Duke
of Argyle, Mr. John Bright, Mr. Child
ers, secretary, Mr. Chamberlin, presi
dent of the board of trade, and Hon.
Win. 13. Forslor, chief secretary for
Ireland, were present. Considerable
comment was indulged in on the ab
sence of the German and Austrian
ambassadors. Mr. Gladstone was en
thusiastically applauded on rising to
reply to the toast, "Her Majesty's
Ministers." After a review of past
events he said he was disappointed
that the bountiful harvest had not im
proved the circumstances of Ireland.
Tlje belief that the Irish land leaguers
required further amendments he said
was by no means confined to the agi
tators, and like minded persons of the
government found the act of 1870 in
sufficient. It would not hesitate to ask
parliament to deal with the subject in
a spirit of equity and justice. Land
league agitation, he said, was almost
entirely illegitimate and totally in
eompalible'wilh the concerns of a "well
constituted society. The agitation
punishes, not England, but Ireland,
where not only the landlords, but the
occupants of the soil are injured in
their rights appertaining to full citizen
ship by menace, intimidation, and
crime. The maintenance of the exist
ing law must precede reform. The
government recognized the duty of en
forcing the laws above all other duties,
and would not hesitate to ask for an
increase of power if the present was
A clockmaker of Copenhagen, named
Louis Soenderberg, who for some time
past has had charge of the city's electric
time-keepers, has just invented an in
genious appliance which obviates the
necessity of winding up the regulator,
from which the clocks in question "take
their time." By a mechanical contriv
ance which periodically cuts off the
stream of electric fluid emahating from
the battery, and brings an electric mag
net lo bear upon the relaxed main
spring in such a way as to renew its
tension instantaneously, perpetual mo
tion is practically imparted to the works
of the regulator that is to say.as long as
the batteries connected with it are kept
properly supplied with acids. The dis
coverer of this important improvement
has satisfied himself, by six months'
successful experiments in his own work
shops, that his system works faultless
ly, and has applied for permission to
adopt it to the electric clock's set up by
the municipality in different parts of
the Danish capital. Electricity, under
Mr. Soenberg's compulsion, is destined
not only to make the Copenhagen clocks
go, but to wind them up, with never
ending recurrence, until the "crack of
