"UARRIEL, BLOW TOUUTBUiMrE 1
Ad Old bnl Maori Stoi y ot I.orrrno Dow,
Lorenzo Dow, Ilia lmted" eccentric
tr.ivelinjr prcnclicr of days long gone
by, wis very exact in the niipointnients
lio iiiiulo to uproar and jtreiU'li, anil
sometimes had them arranged a long
ways ahead. lie once approached
near one. of tho small towns in the
vicinity of Atlanta, (la., and told his
congregation that on that dav, one
year, he would preach to them again.
The next season, on the Saturday af
ternoon preceding the Sunday of tho
appointed time, the old man was jog
ging along the main road In the direc
tion of the congregation, lie noticed
before him a stout little negro bov, of
peculiarly active step and manncr'.who
carried in his hand a small t in horn,
. such as is used to call the people to
The custom among many In the
South (previous to the war) ' wa.s to
allow married men to g to their
wives' houses, and children t visit
their parents, on Saturday evening, to
stay with them on Sunday; and n-i the
negroes are musically inclined, thev
carry a life, a horn or a banjo, to give
notice of their approach and to be
guile tho way; while in other cases
they whistle, sing or shout. Dow, ac
cording to his usual Inanner, entered
into conversation with the boy, and
found he was about to visit the con
gregation he was ul unit to meet. If
the truth must be told, Lorenzo had
an idea that the character of his llo-k
was that of a reckless, frolicsome,
kind, careless people, upon whom it
was necessary to make u verv decided
impression, or his time would lie thrown
away among them.
"What is your name, mv. lad?"
' Ciabriel, sir," replied the bov, lift
ing a new straw hat, and showing his
ivory, while he actually stopped along
to keep pace with the preacher's horse!
" Can you blow upon that horn ?"
" Oil, yes, masler, I can toot a little."
" Well, let me hear you."
So the negro inflated his cheeks and
made the pine woods resound.
" Do you know a tall pine tree near
the stand at Sharon V" said Dow.
" Yes, that I do. very well, master."
Lorenzo tiien put his hand into his
pocket, and pulling out a silver dollar
showed it to the negro, and told him
that if he would climb into the pine
tree before the people met at the meet
ing, and keep there quiet until he
called out his name, and then blow on
his horn as he had just done, he would
give him the silver dollar jf he did not
tell anybody about it.
The negro expressed himself liighlv
delighted at such an offer, and prom
ised punctuality and secrecy.
On Sunday a large meeting assem
bled at Sharon to hear the famous Lo
renzo Dow. Serious old men and
their wives, wild boys and their sweet
hearts, almost all on horseback, some
times by twos and threes, beside ne
groes from a great distance on foot,
being readily captivated by the natural
eccentric, for they love anything that
lias a laugh attached to it, and they
knew that Lorenzo was good fur sa
joke, even if it did hit hard.'
D:iw selected rather of a brimstone
text, and made the application a
.strong as possible, but he forced his
way slowly among the mercurial,
healthy, honest-hearted people, who
were hard to frighten, lie enumerated
the enormity of the vices lie thought
to prevail, but they wers so used to
them that the words slid like water
over a duck's back.
At length he boldly described, in the
plainest language, the appearance and
character of the "last great day," and
what would bp their condition when
that day came.
" Suppose," exclaimed the preacher
suddenly, and then he pau:-ed, " that
1 his were the day !"
lie saw that some of the women be
came a little fidgeted, and that thev
nudged the fellows into silence and
"Suppose," repeated he, elevatimg
his voice, "that Gabriel should sound
his trumpet !"
At this moment the little negro
showed he was a "trump," and from the
top of the lofty pinealoud and clamor
ous blast overwhelmed the audience.
The women shrieked, the men rose in
the greatest surprise, the horses tied
around the cam) neighed, reared and
kicked, while the terrified negroes
changed their complexion to a dull
purple color. Never was alarm, sur
prise and astonishment more promptly
Lorenzo Dow looked with grave, but
pleased attention upon the successful
result of his experiment, until the
lirst clamor had subsided, and some
began to estimate' the character of the
artilicial angel, and were about to ap
ply a little hickory after the pine.
15ut this suggestion was arrested by
the loud and solemn tones of the
preacher, who, looking very firmly into
the faces of his disturbed audience,
leaned grandly over them to iinish his
discourse, and impressively remarked:
" And now if a little negro boy, with
a tin horn, on the top of a pine bush,
can make you feel so, how will you
feel when that day does come?"
The Streets or Venice.
, Many persons are under a great mis
apprehension as to the means of transit
or locomotion in Venice. It is a mis
take to suppose that there are no
streets, and' that it is absolute ly nec
essary to go from place to place by
gondola. It is true that three bridges
the Rialto bridge of the middle ages,
and the two modern iron bridges
span the Grand canal which divides
. the city in equal halves; it is true that
the city is built upon 117 islands, inter
sected by 150 small canals and 12,4ttO
passages; but almost every one of the
water streets have a quay or footpath
bordering it, while 400 bridges unite
island to island, so that it is quite pos
sible to go to every part of the city on
foot, although few perhaps would care
to do si, for there is not in all the
world a more difficult place for the
traveler, guided only by the "light of
nature," to find a given spot. That
spot may be only a few hundred yards
' away, but to reach it he may have to
cross a half dozen bridges, some lead
ing to the right and some to the left,
and traverse as many squares, of
which there are 3, 127 largersquares
and 269 smaller squa'es.
No one knows the danger of travel
ing more than the trainp. At least
3'JO of them have been killed withjn a I
year while stealing rides, '

The transit of the planet Venus across the

with an observation of one or more of the
contacts, .tlio results, on the whole, were
