is a sort of "Little Sally "Water" game,

(,'ovvly revolves, its individual members

ti.mo, slow and piping compared to tho lusty
song which "Little Bally 'Waters" parties
sing iu America, und tho circling around is

of the dash and remp about it which rightly
belongs there, lic&idcs playing this game,

ono day to sco a crowd of childi-en ou tho

silent wonder tho iutneato ovolution3 of two
hoop-rolling lioys. Ono of them was about
7 and tho cither 10 years old. Tho
older 0:10 had a largo hoop ami thu
younger cno a smaller one. And tho
way they managed thosy hoops wa3
1 .ally n treat. The largo boy would drive
his hoop us fait a3 he could run and tho
smaller boy would como up at right angles,
drive his hoop through thn larger ononnd
follow it himself, all without a single in
stant's interruption of tho rat-tnt of both
sticks upon tho hoops. Then ono boy u ouM
take both hoops and go racing up tho streets,
a stick in each baud, driving tho two hoops
in front of him like a span of horsos. Then
each v? uld drive Lis hoop at the slowest
paced walk, would make it turn somersaults
sidowiso, jump into the air. turn thort around
and go through a gnat number of difilcult
maneuvers; and tho crowd of children stool
by in open mouthed wond-)r, v.hilo I began
to thiuk tht pei lupsl hid been doing tho
(j-innan children an injustice by thinking
that they can play no skillful gnmes.

A funny scene occurro.1 in tho seuato of
tlielTnitotl Stales on tho day that AVillnrd
KauKbiir"' I51 tc'nu cxpircil. Just licforo
12 o'clock on that day, at which hour his
tiiuo was up, ho took tho floor to speak to
BOino question in which he was deeply inter-
stc.1. Vitss I'nisident Colfax pcrniitte.1 him
to run nlong till Ilftccn inmutes past time,
nnd then tho V. I. began to hitch nnd fidget
in his chair. Finally Colfax, rapping, said:
"The senator from Delaware is out of order
und will plcaso take his seat."
"I nm not out of order, Mr. l'naideutP
thuuJora 1 the bibulous Willard iu response.
"Do you think I do not know- w hen 1 am out
And thou he plunged into his subject
Colfax turned and twisted, aud then rapped
"Tho senator from Delaware is out cf order,
nnd ho w ill tako his seat."
This was too much for the now irate sen
ator, ami he wns about launching one of the
scorching phillipics he was so capable of ut
tering nt tho devoted head of tho vico presi
dent, when tho latter interposed with:
-Ono minute tlio senator from Dilawnio

TLe cntio do not seem to have noticed
nt least they have not commented npou
the natural" way iu which Henry Irving
counterfeits the death struggle upon tho
stage. Tho American actors invariably fall
Imckwanl when they come to thedeath scene
in their tragedies, Mr. Irving falls forward
full upon his face, and this, wo are told by
phvs-cians and soldiers, is the natural way
w itli tlux-e suddenly overtaken by death.
In a recent conversation, Cnpt. U-e, of -tho
regular army, said that Irving's death in
"lAjuisXP was the most natural bit of act
ing bo ha J ever Men. He hai boon a w itncas
of numerous shooting afTairsuivn the bonier,
an I lie had noticed that when a. mm was
shot his head fell forward upon hU lircast,
and his loJy fell iu tho direction indicated
by the head. Capt. Lee vi'itcd the field of
Gettysburg the elay after the tattle and bo
found the dead ninety-nine out of one hun
dred ca-s lying flat upon their faces.
Anii-ricaa ivuutcrs invariably represent the
dead upon tho battle-field, ns lying upon their
luik. l'erhaps tliey do this for the purpose
of .'eliueating death upon tha countenances.
The French painters as invariably repre
sent the dead with their faces downward,
preferring to more subtly convey the idea cf
death by an ouutretcbeJ arm, a convuls
ively clutched hand, or soino other small but
kidecusly artistic detail of the phenomenon
of tlcatli Irving is the only actor we. knon
vl who has defied every -." trn Jition and
custom, and dies on the stage as people oil
the stag. die. The innovation is n plearins
one, and should pass into custom

TEACHING A DOG TO READ.
Retail of MrJoIui Lubbock's Course
New York Sun.J
Sir John LuLbock, tho distinguished phys
icist, a3 wo not long ago explained, is trying
to teach his dog to converse.
It seems from a letter which Sir John send3
to the last number of Nature, that Vau, the
dog, is making very satisfactory progress in
his studies. Ho is, in leed, displaying such
aptitude for learning teat his master iutc 11 Is
soon to put him into arithmetic.
The method of Instruction adopted is a
very riinp'o cue. Sir John prints on pieces
of canl-board, nliout ten inches long by thrco
inches broad; such words as 'food," "bone,"
"water," "out," etc A number of theso
carls are placed on tha floor sido by side, so
fiat tho dog has several cards to Fclect from,
each bearing n difiereiitword. Van has now
learned to distinguish between thoso card;1,
nnd to 10npl tlio bringing of a card as a re
cmest. For instance, "When ho is hungry he will
bring a 'food' card tima after time," says Sii
John Lubbock, "until ho has had enough, and
then ho lies dow n quietly for n nap." AVlien
ever he is thirsty ho picks up the "water'
car.l without any suggestion from his master,
nud brings it with icifect gravity. When
ho is invited to tako a walk ho "gladly io
sponds by picking up tho 'out' curd and run
ning triumphantly with it befoio mo to the
front door. If through inad vei tenco ho
brings n card for something ho does not
want, when tho corresponding object is
shown to him he seizes the card, takes it
back again, and fetches tho 1 ight one." Sir
John therefore concludes, after much obser
vation, that tho dog "cannot only distinguish
between ono word und another, but alo as
sociate tho word and tho object."
Van has mada this progress in conversa
tion, too, depito many interruptions iu tho
courso of tho instruction duo to his master's
frequent absences from homo nnd inability
togivo mora than n little ntteut ion to tho
dog's tuitiou. As it ir, in tho opinion of Sir
John Lubbock, it seems to be demonstrated
that "this method of instruction opens out
a menus by which dos and other animals
nmy bo enabled to communicato with uf
more satisfactorily than hitherto."
Sir John Lubbock, indeed, repeats his re
quest that others w ill co-operato in this work
of canine instruction, for, as wo have said,
ha wants to ovtend tho course. "I am now
considering," ho writes, "tho liest modo of
testing Van in very simple arithmetic"
Hcie, too, in nil probability, ha will like
wise In successful, and wo await with in
terest tho rc'HirU of Van's progress in learn
ing to cipher.
A r.ntloiuil Wlml-ls-It.
"My il'iughtcr camo homo from school
yesterday," said tho colonel to tho avenue
man of Tho Republican, "ami asktd
mo what kind cf a government existed in
tho District of Columbia. Sha goes to tho
Jefferson school, ami her teacher had asked
tho question of tho wholo roomful of half
grown girls. Not one of them could answer,
anil tho teacher told them to find out before
tho next day. That's tho way my girl camo
to ask tho question. When I tried to answer
her I was badly puzzled. It isn't either
kingdom, empire, republic, nor democracy.
It has neither czar, emperor, king, nor j.resi
deut, but appears to bo nn institution with
three heads and ono body.
The name of tho girl's sebool reminded me
that Jefferson said: "Governments derive
their just powers from tho consent of tho
governed,' but that proposition didn't fit, for
w o never consented to nuy such thing. It
ceitiiinly wasn't a 'government of tho peo
ple, for the people, and by the people,' for ns
n matter of fact tho people I uvo mighty little
to do with it. 3Iy gill asked if it was 11
monarchy, cither absolute) or limited, and I
pointed out the nlr-eneo of loyal families to
prove that it couldn't be. I finally told her
to tell tho teacher that this district wns a
small protcctorato of tho United States,
chiefly used as a city of ivfugo for surplus
statesmen that vvei e slightly run dow 11 at the
heel at home."
A Illiiid .'bin'. Touch.
They were in tho groeoiy stoie. Slid
Brown (scoing a blind man nliout to enter),
"Weioyon aware how delicate tha touch of
of a blind man isi When nature deprives .is

tho other senses to extraordinary acutcnes.--.
IiCt mo illustrata by this gentloman. I'll
tako a scoop of sugar and let him feel of it,
and you soo how quickly ho'Jl tell what it is."
Tho blind man having entered, ho was put to
tho test. Ho put his thumb and finger into
the scoop, and without hesitation said, "Tnal
is sand" l'vcrj body laughed but the gro
cer. Ho made threo several attempts at
blushing, nnd then went into tho back shop
nnd kicked hisdog.

The "lilac K Hole'' of Calcutta.
The read.r is familiar with the story of tha
Ulack Hole outrage, cr can at least look it
up in any comprehensive English history. It
may bo of interest, however, to state that
all traces of this tragedy nro now covered
up, so that tho scene w here it was enacted is
the heart now of this busy metropolitan city;
so complete has been the triumph of western
civilization. The postoflice is a huge building,
surmounted with a splendid dome, and tho
other buildings that mark the site of tho old
fort aro lofty and suhstantiil structures. Dal
bouVie square opposite-, where tha ravelin
