WENT HOME TO DIE.
Old Mn' Face TVa Wreathed in
gmllN When They Found Him.
They told me in the dining car of a
train on the Louisville & Xashvillo
road that in the smoking car -was an
old colored man who was going south
to see his old plantation home again
before death claimed him. By and
by I went in to have a talk with him.
He was wrinkled and white haired, and
wonder that his friends in Kentucky
should have let him set out on such a
long journey he replied:
"Dey just couldn't help delrselves,
Bah. I tole de chill'en I was bound to
cum, an' dey jes had to let mc."

Three or four of us chipped in to I
get his mealn and make him comfort
able, but we saw that the journey was
telling on his strength. On the morn
ing of the day we were to reach Selma
I could see that he was weak and ner

"Ize feelin' sort o' skeart 'boat my

I told him that dreams did not sig
nify, and after a bit had. him quite
chirped up. I got him some tobacco
for his pipe, saw that he had breakfast,
and as I left him he smiled all over with
happiness, as he said:
"Only two hours mo to Selmal Ize

Thirty minutes later the conductor "
beckoned to three or four of ns -to
come into the smoker. The old man '
sat in his chair, leaning against the

Before the coming of the whites
to America the Mississippi river was
known by a different name every few
miles in its course. Each tribe that
dwelt along its banks gave it n name
and more than 30 of these local designations-ore
preserved in the narratives
of the early travelers.
A late official report shows that,
contrary to common belief, cases of
religious mania ore rare in the British
isles. It also discloses the strange fact
that more mental aberration is devel
oped among the tribe of peddlers than
among any other class, physicians and
druggists coming next. Melancholia
prevails most in Ireland.
Sportsmen's enthusiasm is not al
ways contagious. It worked distinctly
the other way in the case of a resident
of JJayside, Me who recently was
stopped on the highway by a party of
sportsmen and made to wait with them
an hour and a half, so that he would not
scare away a deer which others of the
hunting pa-ty were trying to drhe out
of the bordering wood.
The archer fish has a natural blow
gen. This unimai possesses tne curious
property of being able to shoot drops
of water from its mouth.with' extraor
dinary accuracy to considerable dis
tances. This singular faculty is of use
to the animal in securing its food. A
fly or small insect passing over the
water has very little chance of escape
from the deadly aim of the archer fish.
The drop of water brings down the in
sect, which is then incontinently de
voured. Experiments ore being made in
Arizona in the establishment of carrier
pigeon messenger Ferviee between re
mote mining camps and the nearest
town or railway shipping points. So
far as tried the service has proved suc
cessful and very valuable. The trails
out from some of the large camps are
long and difficult to traverse at times,
and the carrier pigeons insure a great
'saving of time in exchanging com
munications. Five thousand horses in one bunch
were rounded up on the Flathead In
dian reservation in Montana a rrreE or
so since. So large a bond of horses I
seldom seen now except on a few of
the Indian reservations where there is
an unrestricted range. For almost a
week before the bunch was gathered
in the Indians and half-breeds were
scouring the valleys, canyons and
mountain sides, driving every .horse
they found toward the common center,

ROMANCE OF A WIG.
A Very Simple Trick That Ended In a
A tragic ending' to a comic scene re
sult'tl in the heroine of the adventure
being conveyed to the hospital in a very
precarious state, while the hero was se
curely under lock and key at the
depot of the prefecture of police In
Paris. The whole affair turned on some
fiilly fun and stupid horseplay about a
wig. A young man had been fascinat
ed by the attractions of a girl a few
yean, his junior and had asked to be
permitted to pay his attentions to her,
but she was by no menns disposed to
return the compliment, as he had be
come very bald through illness, and,
ns the object of bis affections concise
ly put it, she would never dream of
marrying anyone with no harr on his
The youth meditated 01 er his dis
comfiture, and then a happy thought
flashed upon him. He would repair
the ravages of uukind nature by a re
course to art, and forthwith he wended
his way to a hairdresser's shop and
became the delighted possessor of a
wig with curls and love locks and elab
orate partings in front and behind,
which, as he fondly hoped, would pro
duce the desired impression on the
heart of the obdurate young woman.
Thus adorned, he proceeded that
evening to a restaurant where she was
dining with some friends, but to his
horror she not only burst out laughing
when he appeared on the scene, but
presently made a dash at his wig, which
she tore off, revealing his denuded head
to the astonished gaze of the party.
The youth endeavored to 'wrest the wig
from her grasp, and so, finding herself
hard pressed, the fair maiden passed it
over to one of her companions, who
tossed it to the other side of the room
and then as, ignorant of the fact, he
still struggled, she dealt him a slap in
Beside himself with disapppointment
and wrath, the young man snatched a
knife from the table and, ere the spec
tators of the scene could interpose,
he stabbed the girl in the neck. Cries
of d is.may now resounded, instead of the
peals of laughter which had hitherto
rent the air, as the young woman fell
fainting to the floor. The police were
summoned, and while the youth was
led off in custody the girl was taken
to the shop of a neighboring druggist,
pending her removal to the hospital.
It was feareil that she would not re
