GOVERNOR SEWARD'S LOST BET.
- Bte- Falls to Establish His Identity and
Loses Twenty Dollars.
The other af ternoon, when the shadows
werejgrowing longer in the streets and
' the dayiwas taking on a somber hue, a
little group of politicians sat in the city
. hall regaling:each other with | ye stories
of ye oideu time. Among t-Lose reeled
off was the following regarding an ex
'perieiace of Will hm H. Se ward, who was
- then governor of the Empire State. It
seems that while traveling around
through the rural districts and making
sure that his political fences had no very
- hid breaks in them, he came one even
ing to the humble abode of a farmer.
It was too far from the town where
be was stepping to go back that night,
and so he asked permission to stop there.
This was. cheerfully granted, and after
partaking of an old fashioned country
supper the old farmer invited, hi?, un
known gnest to take a ride across the
country, with him? fae having an errand
to do in o neighboring village. With
all the s mi vi ty for which Mr. Siward
"wa? jn?tly famed. be accepted the invi
tation. an<< as they drove along in the
gathering twilight he entertained .the
old farmer wi Ui.'nil manner of campaign

Tbe old farmer's natrve shrewdness
caused him to wonder why ?be stranger
should show ld m sn much attention, and
at last he blurted or:t:

Mr. Seward at once acknowledged the
soft impeachment, and then informed
the inquisitive old fellow that be.'was
the governor of the state of. New York.
This quieted, the old fellow for awhile,1
,bct At h ist he cool d hold in no longer, and
he quietly infonnod Mr. Seward that he
thought he. was a Lar. Mr. Seward,
however, insisted on the truth of his
story, and the dispute finally resulted in
a wager of twenty dollars. The money
was placed in an old lantern that wa?
_ carried In the wagon to be used in eas?
"of emergency, and it was agreed that
the first-person they met was to. decide
as to the J ownership of the money.
Should he fail to recognize Mr. Seward
as governor the former was to win, and
. The test soon came. Driving by the
shop of a wayside blacksmith, the pro
prietor himself stood in the doorway.
Tue farmer stopped his wagon and Mr.
"My friend, my veracity has been
questioned by the gentleman with me,
and I should be pleased to have him con
vinced, as. to who I am. Will yon be
kind enough to tell him?"
The man of brawn and muscle peered
at Mr. Seward long and earnestly. Then
turning to the fan uer he said, in awe
"He's all right, Bill! 1 know him!

and Mr. Seward was poorer by that
amount than when he started out.-Cht

The ?rvement jriginated in the Church
dut, Ml ?ganfcation consisting of about
400 representative Episcopalians.
Instead of an Oxford tutor, a New
.York lawyeivEverett P. Wheeler, con
ceived thc idea of a hospitable home,
with liberal minded-men in residence,
where the workingmen of the east side
might meet. Mr. Wheeler had just re
turned from London when he read his
paper to the Church club, showing the
magnitude and magnificence of the
work accomplished i% Whitechapel by
The laymon were so very favorably
impressed by the strength of the appeal
and the earnestness of their asSociat
that as individuals they agreed to giv?
any project hs* might formulate their
support. That was in March, 1801.
In June Mr. Wheeler had rented
an old frame dwelling house at the
foot of East Seventy-sixth street, once
the country residence of a promi
neut New. York physician, to which he
gave the name of the East Side club.
His family had gone abroad, and when
it was learned that Mr. Wheeler had
closed his house at the corner of Seventy
first street and Park avenue, and taken
up his residence in the club for the sum
mer, his friends in the Lawyers' club,
the (?urch-*lub and society generally
-yere amazed. From chance acquaint
ances he made friends, and the few who
were welcomed Ao the freedom of the
turf and the cool shade about the house
welcomed; others on their dwu-responsi
bflitp. In this simple and cordial way
tho men were drawn to .the East Side
stab every evening, and (on Sundays
they brought their children and their
tanche* and newspapers and picnicked
on the grass.
Mr. Wheeler talked to the people. He
bad every newcomer introduced to him,
and he sat on "the grass with them; he
smoked and.read with thom, and he not
only got their ideas on political, social
and industrial questions, but frankly
gave his own. Some of these friendly
discussions lasted a week, and; news of
them drew new visitors. When one
evening "the club gentleman," as he
. was called, invited two men to dine with
bim, his sincerity of purpose was estab
lished, and since then the work has pros
Associated with Mr. Wheeler were the
Eev. Mr. Theodore F. Bacon and Mr. L
D. Hnghes. graduate and student of di
vinity. Notwithstanding the religious
tendency of these gentlemen and the
I support of the Church club, the work
was conducted on purely nonsectarian
lines. Not a Scripture quotation was
seen on the walls, and neither hymnal
nor book of common prayer was visible,
(The . old- fashioned dining room was
converted into a billiard hall, and here
the men smoke and chat, play billiards,
chess and checkers, whenever they like.
At a small expense the conservatory
was converted into a gymnasium. On
the same floor is' the lavatory and bath
"Every day in the week from 9 a.m.
until 10 p. m. the clubhouse is open and
the attendance in the billiard room and
gymnasium is greater Sunday than at
any other time. ' When exception was
I taken to this unusual plain bf operation
Mr. Wheeler took th? ground that a
gentleman might play a game of bil
liards in his private club Sunday after
noon if-the notion pleased him without
exciting any comment among the mern
bera. Granting this, privilege to a mer
chant, banker or professional man, why
should it be denied his truckman and
clerks? It also occurred to him that a
I game of-eards in a private club was not
' only lass baneful, but less expensive
than ta a saloon or beer garden.
Another innovation is a monthly dance
to -which all the members are invited to
bring their wives, sisters and friends.
Good music is provided, simply printed
dancing cards are distributed and in the
middle of the programme hot chocolate
and cake or corlee and sandwiches are
served. The young clergyman is al
ways present,.and no.group, however
small, is unattended ta the club, and ta
consequence noisy harangues, profanity
and discord are unknown.
Now there are five club residents-Mr.
W. S. Brush, "also, a lawyer; Mr. Paul
Reynolds," editor of a religious, paper,
Mr. Willis B. Holcom, Mrs. Virginia

the school had to be closed Several
deaths resulted from measles and fever.
The work was resumed recently with a
membership of fifty. At the start those
toddlers had to be washed and scrubbed;
I now they present themselves clean and
tidy. , *
Any self respecting man may become
a member .of the club , by paying fifty
cents a month. This fee entitles the
member to all the privileges and advan
tages of a social and f~ vndly organiza
tion. It gives his children the freedom
of the- playgrounds seven days ta the
week and provides kindergarten train
tag for them. It welcomes his wife to
the mothers'meetings and the general
entertainments, and it gives him the use
of a gymnasium, library and reading
room, and a cozy and beautiful place to
spend his holidays. It brings him in
contact with at least three sympathetic
and influential men on whom he can de
pend for many courtesies calulatedto

to the occasion. He rode out through i

Occasionally some person knocks at ?
the door of Jay Gould's office in the :
Western Union building with a copy of i
"The History of Delaware County, New
York, by Jay Gould," to sell. An im
pression exist?' in the minds of many
people that Mr. Gould is desirous of

Thf Unreasoning Crowd.
Speakin;; of thc queer things tobe seen
jn the streets, it is really astonishing
how iustinetively ono person imitates an
other. A man with a passion for i>sy

some experimenta which are, to say the

small party of folk, he suddenly turned
jut into the muddy street, as if avoiding
something in front. ' Unquestioningly
every person behind did the same thing
in spite of tho mire.
It isn't likely that they felt the full
humorous force of the incident in quite
the way he did, however, when they saw
bim face about and walk calmly back in
the beaten path. The sheep went to all
the trouble of jumping over a bar of

. . Antidotes for Snake Poison.
The effect of snakebite depends partly"
on the condition of the snake and partly
on that of the person bitten and the part
attacked. Np effectual antidote has yet
been discovered. Ammonia and per
manganate of potassium will not suffice,
although a solution of thejatter will
take away the poisonous property of the
snake's venom if it be mixed therewith.
Immediate amputation of a bitten toe
or finger is the best course, as the delay
.f a few seconds may suffice to convey
the poison into ibo patient's circulation.
If from the nature of the partjritten
amputation cannot be performed, a very
tight ligature applied after cauterization '
and sucking the part is the best course,
and the administration of stimulants is
generally recommended.-Quai terly Re
Bice and Wheat at Weddings.
Throwing rice and wheat at a wed
ling is a relic of an old Roman custom,
rod has probably been common in Eng
land since Roman, times. Brand gives
jeveral authorities for it. Friend refers
to the case of the bride of Henry VII at
Bristol in 1486, when wheat was thrown
J pon her with the greeting, "Welcome
rod good kick!"
Ric?is used similarly at weddings in
India, and the substitution of this grain
for wheat in our own country of late
rears may be partly due to that fact;
but where wheat cannot readily be come
it rice would naturally suggest itself as
i substitute.-Notes and Queries.

*N INTERESTING QUESTION THAT [
MAY NEVER BE ANSWERED.
Are the Styveinenta of the Head ?nd
Face After Decapitation Involuntary
or Are They Attended with Some Slight'
Action of the Will-Some Experto <mt*.
The question of the duration of >n- !
iciousness in the brain of criminals ? .er (
Bx?cntion by hanging br by the g-~l>
tine is being discussed with greater in
terest than ever since Anastay, the mur
derer of Baroness Dell ard, paid his debt
to society. It ia. said that this remarka
ble criminal sent to his brother a letter
an the subject as follows:
The separation of my body and that which
constitutes ray thinking being cannot so soon
ho accomplished. I believe there is a survival
sf a bon t an hour. Como, then. Leon, be pres
ent at my execution and insist that my head
he givon lo yon. Call me with your voice and
my pye* will reply to you.
This is bnt the repetition of a popular
belief that has prevailed for centuries,
There is a legend of a state execution in
Euglaud at an epoch when the ax and
Mock were in nse, which sets forth that
after (the instrument had fallen the per
son whose head was on the block ex
claimed, "You have missed me!" to
which the executioner replied wit?T a
slight kick that sent the head rolling to
a distance. The story never gained much,
credence, bnt is still worthy of dise?a
rion. Ita tmrh or falsity would depend
Dn the possibility of the instrument
being so thin and sharp that the walls
of the veins would not be displaced, in
which case the circulation of the blood
might continue for a few seconds, and
whether con^cionsness inigbt continue
for a moment af I pr the vertebrae.of the
neck was severed. This last difficulty
would l>e the greatest, since ntter tin
consciousness is supposed to besimul
tancous with the severing of the spinal
cord or the breaking of the neck. In
any event, scientists who have taken tho
trouble to 6tudy the fares of the guillo
tined for a few seconds after %he fr.-ial
stroke, or who have ma do experiments
with decapitated animals, do not favor
Several French physicians, and among
them Dr. Paul Loye, now deceased, but
ouce a professor at the Sorbonne, have
experimented with dogs, using for their
hanging or decapitation machinery like
that employed in public executions,
Tho dog was chosen for the ex
p?riment? as having the most i
bile face and being able to repro
duce the movements which in rare
cases have been observed in human
subjects. Persons whom tins treatment
of dumb animals might re volare lagged
to remember that the suffering is much
less than in vivisection, since these
methods of execution are generally rec
ognized as producing the least pain;
Tho guillotine employed by Dr. Loye
was similar to that used for the cxecu
rion of ordinary criminals in France. It
consisted of a triangular knife or ax,
surmounted by a mass of lead weighing
over twenty pounds and falling over
six feet upon the heck of the animal,
which was severed at the third verte
bra. The phenomena qbserved were
similar to those remarked by other
French and by foreign savants whose
experiments have been less elaborate.
At the moment the li ead was detached
from the body the mouth opened wide,
as if the animal was making an extraor
dinary effort at inhalation. Tie tongiie
was applied to the lower part of th?
mouth and underwent a brief period of
agitation. The eyelids were closed with
light contractions. Then the eyes were
opened and rolled fronrside to side and
top to bottom, tho pupila in the mean
time gradually contracting. At_ihe.
same time the jaws/Were opened' and
violently closed, and the face was rapid
ly convulsed. This was followed by
changes at the corners of the mouth, vi
bration of the nostrils, trembling bf the
lips and erection of the ears. -The'en
semble of these movements constituted
a series of horrible grimaces like those
seen on the face of the guillotined, and
seemed to express the most intense ag
ony If the cornea of the eye was
touched the ej*elids closed, but if an ab
ject, no matter of what kind, was placet"
before the eye there was no movement
Neither did crying nor whistling into
the ears of the dog appear to cause the
slightest sensation. The pinching of
the tongue caused a slight shrinking of
that organ. Although the pupil of the
eye was contracted, the approach of a
light rendered the orifice still smaller.
These phenomena occupy abont ten
seconds, and are followed by a period of
repose continuing to '?be fifteenth or
twentieth second, during which the
month rest? closed and the eyes open
and without movement. At the end of
this time the mouth opens and closes
quickly, the nostrils dilate and contract.
During this time, although the irritation
of the cornea has caused a slight wink
ing, neither whistling in the ear nor
touching the tongue or nostrils with am
monia or cologne has been able to /pro
duce any effect. The opening and clos
ing of the mouth resemble yawning,
and are reproduced a dozen times, after
which the motions gradually cease.
Then the cornea loses its sensibility t?
the touch, though, half a minute having
elapsed, the yawning is still active. The
pupil of the eye dilates at the approach
of light, but does not contract, and the
cornea loses its glistening appearance.
At the end of two minutes the yawning
and other phenomena have ceased, end-1 ]
mg in mere contraction of the fibers,
and the head takes a coipselike look.
