THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 10, 1880.
Farmer Hendersen came in from the
barn one morning with hands and clothes
wet and covered with mud,- his face red
and his eyes Hashing.
"Ned !" he shouted, as he entered the
kitchen, " Where's Ned ?"
" Here I am !" came a cheery voice in
reply ; and an instant after a bright,
strong boy of some sixteen years entered
the old fashioned country kitchen from the
adjoining woodshed, where he had been
cutting potatoes for the day's planting.
"De you want anything?''
"I want te tell you this," said Mr.
Hendersen, as be washed himself at the
sink, and rubbed his weather-beaten face
with the coarse towel until it was even
mere red than before. "Old Dan must
be killed ! Just see the state I am in, and
all from that worthless old t d.-cal ! I won't
have him about the house another day.
He's geed for nothing but te make trou
ble, and he must be shot before night !"
added the farmer, wrathfully.
Ned was about te plead for his pet.
when his little sister came into the room,
" Why, papa, what is the matter ?" she
cried, running te him in astonishment.
" Did you fall into the creek ?"
"I might as well," he replied, half
laughing. "Old Dan butted me into the
There was a shout of laughter from both
children, in which the mother joined.
"Well, Jedediah," said Mrs. Hendersen,
coming into the kitchen, and shaking with
mil th, "what could you have been think
ing about te let an old ram, most twenty
years old, knock you into the watering
"But," explained her husband, "he took
me unawares. I had just filled one pail te
carry te the barn, and was steeping te dip
I the ether, when the old rascal came at me
I like the wind, and knocked me completely
into the water ! lie scampered, 1 tell you,
before I could get out. lie knew he had
done mischief. Anyhow, he's get te be
killed te-day, sure. He's en'y a nuisance,
and I'll sheet him te-night, when wc come
back from town, if he's en the farm ?"
Twe hours later Mr. and Mrs. Hender Hender
eon drove away te be absent from home
until night. As they rattled out of the
yard Old Dan suddenly appeared close te
the gate, and, wagging his tail as if in de
rision, gave utterance te a hearse
" Ba-a-a !"
The farmer turned, shook his whip at
the old fellow, and cried, "This is your last
day. my boy, make the best of it."
Ned and Canie were the only children.
Leaving Carrie in the house alone, after
they had consulted a while whether there
was any way of evading Old Hans sau
fate, Ned shouldered his hoe and marched
off te his work, planting potatoes with
Biensen, the hired man, in the " back
But the little girl of thirteen had no
thought of being afraid. She had the
breakfast dishes te wash, some sweeping te
de, and the dinner te get, all before 12
Time fled. The dishes steed in shining
rows upon the pantry shelves, the broom
had performed its work, and Carrie was
preparing the vegetables te be boiled when
there came a faint knock at the deer. Sup
posing it te hi one of the neighbors, the
little girl did net rise, but called :
" Come in !"
The deer slowly opened, and a man step
He were a long black coat, buttoned te
the chin and very threadbare. His trou
sers, tee, were black and shiny, and much
tee short for him. On one feet was a beet
while the ether was graced by a ragged
shoe. He carried a battered silk hat in
his hand. His face was long and solemn,
but (juite red, his eyes bleared, his hands
very dirty, and altogether he was a queer
"Is your ma at home, miss ?" said he,
in a half whine, as he glanced sharply
about the room.
"Ne, sir." tcplied, Carrie wondering
why lie asked ; " she has gene te Under
bill. Did you wish te see her ?"
"Oh, no," the man replied. " I only
asked out of politeness, you knew," and
he smiled solemnly at the little girl,
aud winked ene eye. " Ne, I came en
business, with your pa particular urgent
busitiess. S'pese lie's around, is he
" Ne, sir, he went te town with my
mother," said Carrie.
" New, that's tee bad !" exclaimed the
visitor, as he seated himself ; " and I've
come se far te see him. But perhaps your
brother or sister would de as well '."'
" I haven't any sister," said the little
hostess, laughing ; " and my brother's
ever in the back let. He'll be in by and
by, though, if he'll de."
" Well, I don't hardly believe he will,
after all," said the man, shaking his heart
thoughtfully, "and I can't wait te-day,
anyway ; I hain't the time. But I am
terribly hungry. If I could I stay te din
ner, miss. However, under the circum
stances, perhaps you had better give me a
light lunch before I go ; a piece of pic and
a cup of tea. and a little cold meat, or
something of that sort."
"Oh, certainly, only I ain't give you
the meat, for wc" haven't it in the house,"
said Carrie, rising ; "but I will find some
thins." And she breusht from the pantry
"a whole apple pie which she placed before
htm, with a knife and fork.
" If you will help yourself I'll have the
tea' ready in three minutes."
"All right, my dear," said the man,
seizing the knife and drawing the pie to te
waid him, " I will act upon your advice.
The last time I took dinner with General
Grant," he continued, as he cut a great
piece aud began te eat, " he said te me,
'Governer, governor,' said he, 'never dis
regard a lady's advice,' and I have always
remembered what lie said," and he
chuckled merrily, and nodded his head at
the delicious-looking pastry befere him.
Carrie wondered a little at the table
manners of the man who had dined with
Grant, but she steeped his tea, ilavered it
with rich cream and sugar and passed it te
"lam net much of a hand for tea,"
said the man, as he drained the cup, "but
my doctor says that I must drink it for
my digestion. Ruined my digestion while
I was in the army, you sec ; " and he wink
ed solemnly. " By the by," he continual,
picking up the silver teaspoon from the
saucer, "have you any mere of these"?
They are as neat a pattern as I ever saw
and odd, tee. I should like te see the rest
of the dozen if you have them."
"Mether has only eleven," said Carrie,
in her innocence, " and she is very proud
of them ; but I will show them te you."
Then she brought the little box with
the precious table silver eleven teaspoons
and an ancient cream jug all pure silver
and shining brightly and placed them
before her inquisitive visitor te admire.
He finished his " lirfit lunch." That is,
the pie was demolished and the teapot
empty. As the little girl handed him the
treasures he arose, took the box te the
window, examined its contents with a
critical eye for a moment, and then, as if
in joyful surprise, cried :
1 "1 am right? They are the very
spoons. The very same identical spoons
that my friend lest when he was a boy !
Hew luckv it is that I have found them at
"With these words, aud a very low bow,
the rascal opened the deer aud slipped
away with the spoons and silver cream
pitcher down the path toward the gate.
Fer an instant Carrie steed motionless ;
then, rushing after him, she shrieked :
" Give me these spoons ! They are my
mother's spoons, aud you arc trying te
steal them ! Yeu are a thief ! Bring them
back ! bring them back !"
The man paid no attention te the child's
cries, but ran rapidly down the path,carry
injr the box in his arms ; and the spoons
and pitcher would have been lest forever
if a new party had net appeared upon the
Old Dan was quietly uibbliug the grass
near the gateway. Hearing his little mis
tress's voice, he looked up at the very" in
stant that the tramp passed. What he saw
about the man that disturbed him I don't
knew ; but, erecting his head with a hearse
"Ba-a-a !" he shot alter him like a cannon
The man turned te receive him and de

at his enemy, began together up his stolen
He bad partially completed his task when
Old Dan, who had all this time been watch
ing the proceeding from beneath bis shaggy
eyebrows, shook his long beard, and with
another tremendous " Ba-a-a !" dashed at
him again, and ever he went a second time,
his tte.isures Hying from his hands.
And new began a strange battle with
cries of rage aud pain, the man recovered
his feet and turned upon the ram, kicking
and striking at him furiously, while Dan.
accustomed te such warfare from ycais of
experience with the boys of the country
side, easily eluded him, and in return
butted him te eaith again and again.
The spoons and cream pitcher were
knocked hither and thither, as the com
batants struggled, and the read was
trampled into something like a race-course,
aud the air was filled with very bad lan
guage, very angry "baas," and a great
cloud of dust.
But in some five minutes victory de
clared itself upon the side of the quad
ruped ; and bruised and bleeding, with
clothes in rags, minus hat aud shoes, the
vanquished man suddenly turned away
and ran limping down the read, leaving his
antagonist in full possession of the field
and the stolen silver.
Old Dan remain&d motionless, gazing af
ter his enemy utiffl he disappeared around
a distant turn in the read ; then, shaking
the dust from his coarse wool, he gave ut
terance te a low grumble of satisfaction,
and, wagging his tail, returned te his din
ner in front of the house.
Half an hour later, as Canie washed the
coveted snoens and the bright little pitcher
and laid them carefully away once mere,
she told her brother the story, and hew
the robber was foiled ; and Ned, full of
enthusiasm, cried :
"We will net kill Old Dan at all, for I
de net believe that father would sheet
him new for a hundred dollars !"
Aud the boy was right. The old ram
wen mere than he knew when he fought
the tramp aud conquered him. He wen
his master's regard, and a free, happy life
for the remainder of his days.
The Weakness of the Nomination.
New Yerk Herald.
The weakness of Mr. Garfield's liemiua-1
tien lies in the fact that it is net calcu
lated te strengthen the Republican party
in the doubtful states. It is generally
conceded that the vote of New Yerk will
decide the presidential election ; but the
selection of Mr. Garfield as the Republi
can standard bearer has no tendency te
strengthen the Republican party in this
pivotal state. He is deservedly admired
in Ohie and the West, but he has ac
quired no strong held en the confidence
of New Yerk Republicans.
The Republican ticket, being obviously
weak and second rate, including no name
which had been seriously presented or dis
cussed previous te the Chicago convention,
the Democrats have an opportunity te cer
front it with a ticket bearing the names of
their most distinguished statesmen. We
de notjaiew whether they will be wise
enough te make the most of such an
oppeituuity. If they also should make
up a ticket of men never thought
of for the highest stations, setting
aside the great Democratic states
men as the Republicans have set aside
theirs, the election will be a mere party
tussle. But if they put one of their ablest
statesmen iu the front they will have ex
cellent chances of electing him. Any Dem
ocratic candidate who is strong in New
Yerk and strong in Ohie, would defeat
Mr. Garfield, who is a mere alternate or
substitute for one of the great and accred
ited leaders of his own party. Conspicuous
ability tells, and it will be the fault of the
Democrats if they de net present a strong
er ticket than the one which has been
nominated at Chicago.
A Lightning Calculater.
New Yerk Evening Pest.
Jacques Inaudi is advertised in Paris as
a little prodigy. He is 11 years old and a
lightning calculator. The first task that
he was asked te perform was a subtraction
sum, and when eight figures had been
given out some of the audience, fearing
that his brain would be tee heavily bur
dened, called out, "That is enough!"
Inaudi, hewever,immcdiateIy replied, " It
does net matter. Give me some mere,"
and he had accordingly te subtract one
line of fifteen figures from another of the
same number, giving the result of
the operation without any appreci
able delay. One of the spec
tators, advanced in years, put the
following query te the "calculating boy":
I am twenty days less than 80 years old.
Hew many hours have I lived?" After
devoting about a minute te the mental
calculator, Inaudi gave the answer as
753,306 hours, which proved correct. He
was then made te de multiplication and
division sums, with lines of figures te tril
liens and quadrillions, and always worked
them out " in his head " without the
slightest mistake or stumble. Among his
ether trials was the solution of a sim
ple equation. A irentlcman asked, " If
te my present age 1 added a third of my
age and six years mere I should be a hun
dred and twenty-six years old ; what is
my age?" Inaudi replied, "Oh, that is
easy enough ; you are ninety." Some
body else asked him the cube root of 39,
304, and, with scarcely a moment's hesita
tien, he answered, "thirty-four." Four
months age he was one of these long-haired
little Italian vagabonds who make a
tour around Europe and eke out a preca
rious existence by means of the coppers
thrown them for their amusing antics.

Origin of the Horse-Shee Superstition.
In very early times, says a writer in
Baldwin's Monthly, among the Celtic race
an efiigy of the patron saint, se common
iu churches and temples, was much used
in the dwellings and workshops of the peo
ple as a se-called "protection " against ill
fortune. The "glory" above the head of
these figures which latter were often
rudely carved in weed and painted was
represented by a circular piece of polish
cd metal, te convey the ctrect of
the shining hale, or nimbus, fre
quently seen in illustrations of the Virgin
and ether scripture subjects. Ofte'n this
metal nimbus was or semi-circular form ;
and, as the figure itself had disappeared,
by reason of decay, the nimbus remained
and was suspended in some prominent
place at the entrance deer, or ether point
commanding view. The eflijncs in ques
tien were net uncommonly seen by the side
of the doorway. In course of time, the
nimbus was much used as a substitute for
the latter and was sold in the shops for
The tradition of " geed luck," as em
bodied iu the horse-shoe theory, may thus
be easily traced, since it became a common
occurrence, in due course of time, for the
faithful adherent of the belief in charms
and symbols te adept the horse-shoe worn
te brightness, in the absence of any ether,
which he nailed ever his cottage deer.
Hence a piece of metal of this sliae be
came associated in the common mind with
supernatural presence aud care, in keeping
with the belief attaching te the original
figure of the patron saint.
