No. 1. A Virginian said to his
wife the other day that he would
like to have some rabbits. A pointer
dog overheard the remark and start
ed out. In a little while he return
ed, bringing a rabbit he had caught,
and laid it at his master's feet.
This operation was repeated until the
sagacious animal had brought in four
rabbits. The next day the dog was
ordered to go for more rabbits and
did so, catching three.
No. 2. The Louisville Courier
Journal saya a boy by the name of
Sharp was crossing North Elkhorn
on the ice near Georgetown when he
broke through and was unable to
get out. His dog, a large St. Ber
nard, attempted to rescue him, but
failing vent up on the bank and
set up such a continued howling
that some workmen in an adjoining
field were attracted to the spot.
They procured a long pole and
helped the boy out, although he was
In almost a senseless stupor.
No. 3. A valuable hound attempt
ed to run the gauntlet of the swing
ing doors in the Bradford, Pa., oil
exchange, which resulted in the lyss
of three inches of the end of his
;ail. Being a great favorite among
the members they nearly all gathered
around the dog and paid no atten
tion to business. By the time tho
doctor got the wound dressed a few
bulls, who remained at their posts,
had the price up two cents and suc
ceeded in unloading before the others
had realized the situation.
No. 4. Last "Monday evening,
3ays a Georgia paper, a stranger
came into a saloon in Montague and
called for a drink, which was handed
him. He raised the glass to his lips,
when a large dog took him by the
collar and tried to pull him out of the
door. A crowd collected around and
attempted to take the dog off, sup
posing it would hurt him, but the
stranger said: "Let him alone he is
my dog. I have been on a spree at
Bowlie, and th dog pulled me out of
the saloon there and made me sober
up." The stranger left without his
drink accompanied by his faithful
No. 5. Lovers of superstition, ac
cording to the Chicago Herald, are
revelling in a singular thing which
happened at Quincy during the ill
ness of the late Samuel Medill, the
journalist. When he went there to
the house of his father-in-law, Mr.
Tohn B. Carson, the family took to a
country house a considerable dis
tance from the town a little dog of
Mrs. Medill's, thinking that its bark
ing might disturb the invalid. The
dog was only once brought back and
then in a buggy and only for a few
short hours, but on the day of Mr.
Medill's death, the family in Quincy
were astonished to hear the dog howl
ing in front of their door. The door
was opened and the dog rushed pell
mell into the parlor and scampered
up stairs to the sick-room, bolted in
through the door and sprang upon
the bed. The dying man fondled the
dog, but when the family attempted
to remove the brute it entrenched
Itself underneath the bed, from
whence it was taken with great diffi
culty by the coachman. Mr. Medill
died that night.
No. 6. The other day some Wis
consin people were astonished to see
their dog come into the house with a
piece of paper tied to his tail. They
paid no further attention to it, ex
cept to laugh at his comical appear
ance, until he began going around to
different members of the family,
always tail first, and sticking it at
them. This ludicrous action at last
made them see there was writing on
the paper, which proved to be as
follows: "My legs are broken. Please
help me." They carefully examined
his legs, but found them all right,
when somebody recognized the writ
ing of a woman who lived half a
mile away. They went to her house
and found her helpless from a fall
which broke her legs. She could not
stir nor attract anybody's attention,
and she might have starved or frozen
to death,-but luckily the dog came
in, and crawling to a table she man
aged to write the note and fasten it
to his tail.
Won't Eat Weeds.
A very nobby swell from the city
was passing a few days in the country,
and made himself generally obnoxious
by his highfalutin manners. One
morning he wanted to go out into a
field where a number of cattle were
standing areund, but before he started
he said to the lady of the house:
"Aw, madam, can I gaw out into
"Yes, in course you can; them

GtkUwi of ihe VasU
lit. John B, XleHasto, is hla now
ly published work, a "History of the
Poopio of tho United States from th
Revolution to tho Civil War," says thai
"A Philadelphia gentleman of the lasi
century, If he were a gentleman oi
fashion or means, wore a three-cornered
cocked hat heavily laced. His hair
was done up in a cue, and its natural
shade concealed by a profusion of pow
der. His coat was light-colored, with
diminutive cape, marvellously long
back, and silver buttons engraved with
the letters of his name. His small
clothes came scarcely to his knees : his
long stockings were striped, his shoes
pointed and adorned with huge-buckles;
his vest had flap pockets, his cuffs
were loaded with lead. When he bow
ed to the damsels that passed him, he
took half the sidewalk as he flourished
his cane and scraped his foot." The
historian proceeds to convince us that
the dress of the lady, as she gravely re
turned his salutation and curtesied
nearly to the earth, would seem no less
strange to us. "Those were the days
of gorgeous brocades and taffetas lux
uriantly displayed over cumbrous
hoops, which, flattened before and be
hind, stood out for two feet on each
side ; of tower-built hats, adorned with
tall feathers ; of calash and muskmelon
bonnets, of high wooden heels fanci
fully cut, of gowns without fronts, of
fine satin petticoats, and of implanted
teeth." It appears that in 1784 this
curious custom of transferring teeth
from one woman's jaw to another's
had been lately introduced in Philadel
phia. In an advertisement yet extant,
ono La Mayeur announces to his fair
but presumably mature patrons that
his business is to transplant teeth, and
that he has within the six months just
preceding successfully transplanted
123 ; and he asuires those having front
teeth for sale that he will give two
guineas for every sound one brought
In the city of Philadelphia the drear
iness of winter evenings was relieved
by assemblies and plays. "The assem
blies were of fortnightly occurrence
and very select. The price of a season
t.iPkfit TV-IS thrPft pon3 fifteen. oKil
lings." Married women and refined
men of the world seem to have enjoyed
complete ascendancy, for "it was
thought highly improper that diverse
ments of this kind should be attended
by young men under twenty or by
young women under eighteen. Eight
een was then for women the marriage
able age. Nor did such damsels as
found admittance reap any benefit from
beauty, from wit, or from the posses
sion of any of those charms now so
highly prized. The plainest and fair
est were treated alike. For partners
were chosen by lot, and remained
partners throughout the evening.
They danced, walked, and flirted with
no one else, and when the dancing was
over partook together of rusks and tea."
On the following evening the young
man went to sup with the parents of
the young woman who had fallen to
his lot at the assembly, an event which
was made the occasion of a great dis
play of plate, of china, and of cere
mony. The Drinks of all Nations.
"Drinks of All Nations" was the
subject of one of President Cotten'a
lectures before the Trenor Hall tern-
perance meeting in New York. "Brit

000,000 in drink, an average of $19
each. This does not include the sum
paid for imported Prench wines. I

porting large quantities of whisky to,

In Russia, the common people drink'
enormous quantities of strong beer.;
The nobility consume a great amount

in close proximity one shop must doj

consumed in Russia. Hollander
drink gin and beer. Germans use
beer and wine as beverages. In 1878.
official reports show that there were,
11,800 breweries in the German speak

reduce the 1,350 beer shops to eight.
