Mastering Yicioos Horses.
Yesterday afternoon an exhibition
was given at the corner of Ninth and
Howard Streets of a new and very sim
ple method of taming vicions horses,
which is claimed to be superior to any
in tise. The first trial was with a kick
ing and bucking mare, which, her
owner says, has allowed no rider on
her back for five years. She became
tame and gentle in as many minutes,
and allowed herself to be ridden about
without a sign of her former
wildness. The means by which
this- result was accomplished con
sists of a piece of light rope,
-swhich is passed around the front jaw
of the mare, just above the upper teeth,
crossed in her mouth, and then secured
back of her neck. It is claimed that
no horse will kick or jump when thus
secured, and that a bucking horse after
receiving this treatment a few times
will abandon his vicious ways forever.
A very simple method was" also shown
by which a kicking horse can be shod.
It consists in connecting the animal's
head and tail by means of a rope fast
ened to the tail and then to the bit, and
drawn tightly enough to incline the
horse's head to one side. It is claimed
that it is absolutely impossible for the
horse to kick on the side of the rope.
At the trial yesterday a horse which for
years had to be bound on tho ground to
be shod, suffered the blacksmith to
operate upon him without attempting
to kick while secured in the manner
described. Ban Francisco Chronicle.
A Wild-Goose Story.
The large flocks of geese that are
constantly passing over the town are
frequently shot at, but they generally
fly at too high an altitude to be reached
by the leaden missiles. Sometimes,
however, the shots take effect. The
other day we were watching a flock fly
ing southward, when the report of a
gun was heard, and we saw one of the
geese begin to fall slowly. The others,
perceiving that their comrade was
wounded, uttered shrill cries of distress,
and about a dozen of them flew under
the wounded bird, huddling together so
that their backs formed a sort of bed,
on which the wounded one rested. They
buoyed it up for some time, the others
looking on and manifesting their con
cern by uttering loud, discordant
shrieks. Finding that their companion
was unable longer to accompany them
in their flight, they abandoned him to
his fate, and he fell into the arms of an
expectant Chinaman. Anaheim (Cal.)
AstoBighing Feat at Beer-Drinking.
On Christmas Day an aspiring Ger
man won for himself fame as an indus
trious beer-drinker. Some time since a
question having arisen as to the capac
ity of this individual, he set all doubts
forever at rest by drinking the contents
of a lager-beer keg within the pre
scribed time of three hours. Prior to
undertaking this feat he ate a half
pound of newly made butter, and while
engaged in the act of drinking was re
clining in a bath tub filled with luke
warm water. After drinking the last
glass he was to appearance as sober as
when he commenced the task. There
are one hundred glasses of lager in a
keg. The saloon of Mr. Jaeger in Par k
ville was the scene of the contest be
tween man and malt. Hartford Even
Poison Ib Flavoring Extracts.
Misses Minnie and Alice Wattell, of
Alcuenry btreet, near Monroe, obtained
a small bottle of essence of bitter al
monds, for flavoring cakes, and, instead
of a few drops, they used two or three
teaspoonfuls. On Monday last the sis
ters ate it, and were seized with severe
vomiting and cramps in their limbs and
pains in the soles of their feet. Mr.
Adams, druggist, pronounced it at once
a case of poisoning by prussic acid.
The extract of bitter almonds, which is
usually made by the maceration of
peach kernels in alcohol, is 'little else
than diluted prussic acid. Baltimore

The Atlantic Monthly for February pub
lishes an article on "The Political Condi
tion of South Carolina," written by a South
Carolinian, whose name is withheld. The
writer is certainly not a partisan; he is dis
posed to dwell on the weaknesses and f -suits
of the two parties rather than on their good
deeds, and personally he seems equally
friendly to Chamberlain and Hampton. But,
contemplating the situation from this non
partisan standpoint, his description of how
the Democrats carried the State shows that
the stories of intimidation and fraud on the
part of the'Democrats were not overdrawn.
Terrorism reigned supreme previous to the
election, and for election day a. coup d'etat
was contemplated. The members, of the
rifle clubs were to guard the polls and sys
tematically patrol the public roads in a
menacing manner, so as to frighten off the
negroes and keep them at home. The ac
tion of Governor Chamberlain and Presi
dent Grant in ordering the rifle clubs to
disband interfered somewhat with this
plan. The deliberate purp ise of the Dem
ocrats to prevent the negroes from voting or
to compel them to vote for Democratic can
didates is clearly shown, and the writer as
serts that the white population was arou-ed
to a secession or nullification madness. The
determination to carry the State by the
method known as the Mississippi plan was
Should the Democrats triumph, it is ar
gued that certain results are inevitable.
Whenever they dare, the whites in the
Southern vStates will dlstracuise the negro
outright, and by law, and in the meanwhile
they will, in the States they control, prac
tically disfranchise them. The negroes will
resist re-enslavement to the death, so this
is deemed not wrong, but inexpedient; but
the whites will go as far as they dare in re
stricting colored liberty bv black codes or
detached laws; by prohibiting the negroes
rrom stirring from borne alter some cunew
hour; by prohibiting all colored assem
blages; by placing their churches under po
lice espionage, to prevent tbe discussion of
political themes; by enacting laws as to
schools, education, and contracts that will
deny tbe colored man any right as a citi
zen, and reduc3 him as near as may be to
bis old condition of ignorance and servi
tude. These are numerated as the logical re
sults of Democratic rule in South Carolina;
and yet such men as Judge Trumbull, who
claim to be the friends of the freedmen,
favor the return of the Democrats to power.
The Atlantic article is written by a man
not friendly to the colored people; by a man
who believes '-the colored men have no
more camcitv for government-than a crowd
of Irish roughs, picked up promiscuously
in the streets of a Northern city;" and yet,
Dy bis own admission, tne soutn uaronna
whites are worse than the negroes, and his
whole effort is, in effect, a plea for Justice
to the colored man. While he does not so
declare, yet the facts he elves lead to the
conclusion that the Democrats are deter
mined to undo all that has been done for
the colored people, and that in biding their
time they have the patience only of diplo
mats, aestring to De sure oi accompnsning
Both Legal and Just.
From the Washington Republic. J
The Louisiana Returning Board was a
leal body with powers more clearly defined
than any court in the land. It rendered its
decision according to the law and facts . It
decided that the Republicans had fairly car-
rieu me state, ana tnts aecison must De re
spected by all who favor submission to the
legally constituted authorities of the State.
No man or men can set up his or their pri
vate opinions in defiance of the decision of
the Returning Board. To admit their right
to do so would be to admit the right of any
citizen to defy the decision of any court be
cause it did not agree with his idea of what
was right and just. It the Board had been
Democratic and had overlooked all the evi
dence of fraud and intimidation presented
and had decided that Tilden had carried the
State, every Republican aware of the facts
might question the Justice of the decision,
but they could go no further. While they
might regret the result, their opposition
could take no other form than simple
expression. The legality of the decision
would not be questioned simply because it
could not be. But fortunately for the State
ana tne nation tne memDers oi tne lsoara
were Republicans; men of sufficient char
acter and courage to do their duty and de
cide according to the evidence before them.
The decision rendered may be regretted
by the Democrats for the reason that it
keeps them out of a power which they have
long struggled to obtain, but its legality is
beyond question, while its Justness would
carry conviction to nine hundred and
ninety-nine out of every thousand impartial
The assumption of the White-league lead
ers in seizing offices and undertaking to
wield power is nothing but revolution, and
unless stamped out, not only by power,but
by public opinion, it will lead to the over
throw of our whole system of self-government.
K a certain class of politicians are
to override the law and set up government
on their own account after being defeated
by the people, the deplorable condition of
Mexico will soon be ours.
Tilden as" a Manipalator.
From the St. Louis Journal.
The most lingular political development
of the past few months is the quiet control
which Mr. Tilden exercises over the Demo
cratic party. When any measure of im
portance is under consideration, in any
State, a representative of Mr. Tilden puts
in an appearance and puts a finger in the pie .
Recently, however, there are signs of revolt
among Western Democrats. It is now stated
that Mr. Tilden's representative left Spring
field hugely disgusted over the election of
David Davis to the United States Senate.
His master desired the election of McOor
mick, "who has for years put up money
for the party. ' ' This is not unnatural, as
Mr. Tilden believes in "putting up
up money." Perhaps, also, he would
have preferred David Davis as a final
arbitrator of the contested election
case. The report also comes from Wash
ington that tbe Southern Democrats are
furious since it has become known that Mr.
Tilden instructed his Northern friends in
Congress to kill the Texas Pacific bill for
this session. This action of Mr. Tilden is
characteristic of the man, and is simply a
sample of what the country may expect from
his administration if the Hieh Joint Com
mission should count him in. He Is andf or

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT.
Washington, D. C, January 22. In
reply to the resolution of the House of Repre
sentatives, passed early in December, 1876, re
questing the President to transmit to that
body copies of all orders, or directions, emanat
inr from him. or from eithtr of the Executive
L Departments, to any military commander, or
civil onicer, relating to tne service oi tne army
in Virginia, South Carolina, Louisiana and
Florida, since the first of August last, together
with all reports from any of said military or civil
officers, the President to-day sent to the House
of Representatives a message, accompanied by a
large mass of official documents called
for by the resolution. In reference to
the Bending of troops to the States
mentioned, the President says, after
enumerating some of the sources from which he
derived information as to the necessity of Fed
eral aid in preserving the peace: It is enough to
say that these different kinds and sources of evi
dence have left no doubt whatever in my mind
that intimidation has been used, and actual vio
lence to an extent requiring the aid el the United
States where it was practicable to furnish such
aid. In South Carolina and Florida, and in
Louisiana, as well as in Mississippi, Alabama
and Georgia, troops of tbe United States have
been but sparingly used, and in no case so as to
interfere with tne full exercise of the right of
suffrage. In no case, except that of South Caro
lina, was the number of soldiers in any State
increased in anticipation ot Uic election, saving
that twenty-four men and an officer were sent
f r.,ra Fort Foote to Petersburg, Va. , where dis
turbances were threatened prior to the election.
No troops were stationed at voting -places in
Florida and Louisiana respectively. Small
numbers of soldiers in said States were station
ed at such points in each State as were most
threatened with violence, where they might be
available as a posse for the officer whose duty it
was to preserve the peace and prevent intimida
tion of voters. Such a disposition of troops
seemed to me reasonable, and Justified by law
and precedent, while its omission would have
been inconsistent with the constitutional duty of
the President of the United 8tates, to take care
that tbe laws be faithfully executed I have
not employed troops on slight occasions, nor in
any case where It has not been necessary to tbe
enforcement ot laws ot the United States. In this
I have been guided by tbe Constitution and the
laws which have been formed under it I de
sire to assure both Houses of Congress and the
country that it has been my purpose to adminis
ter the executive powers of the Government
fairly, and in no instance to disregard or tran
scend tbe limits ot the Constitution.

Executive Mansion , January 22, 1877.
A gentleman who has watched the
grasshoppers with an interest born of
an earnest desire to understand their
habits, with a view of benefiting hu
manity in this part of the world, de
clares that the "orthop" is superior in
intelligence to most of the families of
the ammal'kingdom, and in proof of the
assertion gives the following as the re
sults of his personal observations: Last
summer, in order to preserve his wheat
field from their ravages, he flooded his
ditches with oil. It had a good effect
for some time, destroying millions of
the newly hatched hoppers, and he
went about congratulating himself on
his success, when he discovered that
they were not coming over as usual,
and on examination found that they
were moving along the ditch in a dense
column. Following the direction taken
by the column he found that they
were crossing at a point where the rail
road crosses over the ditch, three mile3
from his wheat, covering the sleep
ers and rails, and moving up on
the other side, thus avoiding the
oily tide. The bridge was besmeared
with oil, and again the hoppers were
flanked. Batlike Mary's lamb, they
waited patiently about " until a train
came along. The friction of the wheels
left a space on the rails less than an
inch in width entirely clear of oil, and
the hoppers, retiring to a point where
the track had not been smeared, would
mount the rails and proceed carefully
along the center of the iron, carefully
avoiding the oil on the edges.and it there
fore became necessary to station a boy
at the bridge to carefully smear the track
with oil after the passage of every
train. Thus far the story has every
appearance of probability to one ac
quainted with the unparalleled cunning
of the insect, but when a veteran re
porter present at the narration took up
the thread and asserted that, when thus
finally foiled, the hoppers changed their
line of march, proceed to the nearest
station, and took possession of a train,
waving the conductor aside with all the
cheek of the oldest veteran excursionist
of the Indiana editorial fraternity, we
were convinced that there was some
mistake about the matter. New York

SEVENTY TEiSS A SOLDIER.
The Milltaurr Career of the Cta
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
On the first day of the new year
William I., the Emperor of Germany,
celebrated the 70th anniversary day of
his entrance into the Prussian army. In
1807 the Prussian army was small and
in poor condition, but the young Prince
entered the army and he grew with it;
and he is now the chief commander of
the greatest and best disciplined arm?
in the world. The military coarse of
the German Emperor is closely con
nected with the history of the Prussian
army, and therefore it may be of some
interest to review the single moments
and facts of his military life.
King Frederick William III., the father
of the Emperor, was a very earnest and
strongman, and gave his children a
careful but rigorous education. In the
education of the young princes, the
military character prevailed, and Prince
William was only a boy, 7 years old,
when his training as a soldier commenc
ed His first masters were Sergt. Benn
stein of the Garde battalion.and Sergt.
Moj. Clery of the regiment Moellen
dorf . On the 4th of January, 1807,
during the New Year's gratulatiun in
Koenigsberg, Prince William, then 10
years old, was made Ensign, and on
tbe Christmas eve of the same year he re
ceived as a Christmas present the patent
as a Lieutenant. His military instructor
was Maj. Von Pirch, and the young
Prince was very zealous and diligent
in studying and practicing all the the
oretic and practical branches of the
military exercises and tactics. In 1813
he followed the royal family to Bres
lau, but as in March of the same year
the King, with the Crown Prince, the
late King Frederick William IV., took
tbe field, the young Prince William
had, in consequence of his weak health,
to stay at home, and only titer the bat
tle of Leipzig hewas allowed -to -join
the army, in the' month of November,
1813, he entered the field army as Cap
tain, and participated in person in all
the military actions of tbe following
campaigns. In the battle of Bar-sur-Aube,
Feb. 27, 1814, the young Prince
distinguished himself by personal
bravery, and he received from the Em
peror Alexander of Russia the high or
der of St. George, and from his father
the order of the Iron Cross. During
the skirmishes around Paris the young
Prince always was at1 the side of his
father, and he participated, as a twice
decorated young Captain of the Guards,
in. the entrance of the allies in the
French capital. A few. days slater he
got his patent as Major, and partici
pated afterwards, on the 9th day of
August, with his father, the Crown
Prince, Blueeher, Tauenszien, Bulow,
Scharnhorst and the other heroes of
the great "campaigns of liberty," in
the celebi ated entrance of the victorious
army into Berlin.
In the beginning of the new cam-
Eaign of 1815 he commanded the third
attalion of the First Regiment de
Garde, and he and his battalion took
part in all the actions of the short but
bloody campaign. The victorious army
ertered Paris the second time, and
Prince William stayed there until the
great festival of victory, on the 21st day
of October. Then followed a protract
ed time of peace, and Prince William
climbed step after step the very long
and tediousladder of the army to the
highest honors and places, and finally
to the top of the ladder, where he now
stands the chief commander of the
Prussian army and the Obersle Kriegs
herr" of all the armies of the German
Empire, the greatest and most formida
ble army oi the whole worm, in loss
he was made Commander of the Garde
du Corps, and in 1810, after the death
of his celebrated father, he got tbe
title "Prince of Prussia," and the
governorship of the province of Pom
merania. In the exciting time of the
revolution in 1848 he favored very
strong measures against the revolution
ists, and in consequence of his order to
clear the streets of Berlin with' grape
shot, he was called the " Kartaetschen
Prim" (the prince of grape-shot), and
the population was so indignant that
he had to leave the country awhile.
During the revolution in the Grand
Duchy of Baden, in 1849, he was the
Chief Commander of the Prussian Ar
my of operation, and after the capitu
lation of the fortress of Rastadt, on
July 31, 1849, he got the 'highest
military order, the "Ordrepourle Me
rite," and in 1854 the highest military
rank as General Colonel of the Infan
try and Field Marshal. Durirjjr the
year3 1857 and 1861 he had to perform,
as Prince Regent, the royal duties lor
hij sick brother, and during those years
the great reorganization of the Prussian
army was commenced and finished un
der the continuous control of the Prince
Regent, and, since January, 1861, King
William I. of Prussia. In ascending thy
throne he made the solemn promise
that he would "guarantee and strength
en the kingdom of Prussia in that posi
tion to which it was entitled in conse
quence of its glorious history and the
highly developed organization of its
army." The history of the past 12
years has confirmed this proud word.
But it is not necessary to repeat here
the history of the Prussian and German
army since that time. We mention on
ly the names Koeniggraetz, Sadowa,
rardubitz, woertn, spicheron, Mars la
Tour, Gravelotte, Metz, Sedan, Stras
bourg, Belford, Pans, and so on; and
in adaine tne fact that the emperor
William was present at the most of
these battles and sieges, we can close
this review of the long military life of
the German Emperor. William I. will
finish in two months (March 22) his
80th year, and he celebrated two weeks
ago his military jubilee in full health
ana in best spirits.

At a grand battue, just as the day's
sport has begun, an unhappy hunter
blows off a sufficiency of the head of
his companion on the right. The
wounded man dies without a cry, and
the hunter, as no one has noticed the
accident, silently inters him and re
loads. At dark the company reassembles at
the given rendezvous. Smith is miss
" Where is Smith?" is the cry.
"Oh, I killed Smith accidentally,"
remarks the murderer; "you will find
most of him under the big beech tree
General stupefaction, and the slayer
of Smith is severely censured for not
having sooner given notice that help
might have been extended to the wound
" Of course I might have done so,"
ho protests, "but I didn't want to spoil
your day's fun." Paw Paper.

The Incompatibles .
The Rev. W. H. H. Murray, in a re
cent sermon, says: Now and then you
run across a personality whose temper
ament to you is terrible. It may be
bright to some one else. Now and than
I know that I run across a person that
I have to flee from for self-protection.
I won't trust myself in that person's
presence more than about twice in a
year for any consideration, for I should
certainly get mad, and I should expect
the other person to get mad, too, be
cause we are built differently. As a
sensible and a Christian man, I propose
to recognize the great fact that that
person is disqualified for making me'
happy, and I am disqualified for mak
ing him happy. And so the great path
of peace lies, for us, along divergent
ways. Now, that is true as gospel. You
know some ladies, friends, who are
good ladies, good neighbors, and all
that, but you have to oe on guard all
the time when you are in their compa
ny, for fear that you will say something
to hurt their feelings, or they will "sav
something to hurt yours. And though
you may take care of your side,
you can not guard them from
saying things which you will be
hurt by. Now and then, gentle
men, you run across a man, who is all
claws, who scratches you, who bristles
at you, and the old Adam rises as you
see him bristle, and it is really only by
stern endurance that yon can tolerate
doing business with him, even at arm's
length. No wand then partnerships are
formed between men who never ought
to have come together at all. Both may
be men, perhaps, of fine head and fine
heart, and fine business habits, but they
were never intended to pull in the same
yoke together, as the farmers say.
Well, now, in these matters of detail, I
say yon can change the structure of
things in which you live. If you know
a lady, good woman, who hurts you,
keep away from her house. If you
know a man, gentlemen, whom you can
not meet easily, keep away from him
and tell him to keep away "from you, or
there will be war. Do any thing in
reason to protect yourselves from the
terrible friction these things put upon
A True Mnle Story.
The rescue of a mule in Bienville
Parish, La., from a well 60 feet deep,
caused so much surprise and interest
here lately that I send an account to
you. It is vouched for by some of the
best citizens of this place, who witness
ed it, and I assure you it is every word
fre. This mule fell hind-feet back
ward into an old dry well 60 feet deep;
it is supposed that the edge of the well
caved in with him. All efforts to rescue
him were fruitless, as he was complete
ly wedged in. Finally, the owner of the
mule, supposing mat tne poor creature
was severely injured by the fall, decid
ed tnat it would ne more mercuui to
have him killed than to allow him to
starve to death. Not knowing any other
way of dispatching him, he had a cart
load of dirt thrown upon him. But, in
stead of allowing himself to be buried
alive, his muleship quietly shook off the
dirt and pressed it down with his feet;
thus raising himself several inches above
his original position. Another load was
thrown in, with the same result; and
then some one said that, if the mule
would continue trampling down the
dirt, it was possible that ne might be
extricated; it would be no harm to try,
anyway. Acting on this suggestion, all
the farm-hands went to work filling the
well, carefully pouring the dirt in on
the sides, so as not to hurt the mule. It
was slow work filling that deep well,
but a hearty interest was awakened by
the perseverance with which the poor
animal tramped down the dirt, and all
worked-with willing hands. Slowly bnt
surely, inch by inch, did he ascend, un
til the great well was filled within a few
ieetol tne top; men, as complacently
as if nothing strange had happened,
his mulseship stepped ont safe and
sound! I think, if he could have then
been blessed with the gift of speech,
he would have said, "All's well that
ends well!" Wasn't he a plucky old
fellow ? St. Nicholas for February.
