Dogs Kill a Dog.
A. C. Heffenger tells in ti e American
Field how an old fox hound was done
to death by the pack of which lt was a
member. The hound was called Clay,
and was owned by N. Q. Pope, who kept
it in the White Oak Hill Kennel at Po
land, Me. The dog wa? a prize taker,
and always got a place when lt ran In
the annual trials of the Brunswick Fur
Club. After the annual hunt at Bruns
wick, Me., in which Clay proved better
than all the younger hounds, the dog
was taken back to Poland and put
in the yard, with the rest of the pack.
McGregor, keeper of the hounds, heard
a row in the yard, and coming down,
found that the pack had pitched upon
the champion hound and killed lt by
chewing its throat and chest Wolves
have been known to kill their fellows
In a similar manner. A wolf showing
signs of pain is set upon and killed by
Its comrades. A male fox, when it
finds a female fox in a trap, attacks
and kills it A cow, bellowing with
pain, is set upon by the herd and gored
to death. Whether the attacks are to
ai.d the one In pain or not is not known
by students of natural history.
Buoy Suggested by a Boy.
It is stated in the Boston Post that
the inventor of the whistling buoy,
"that godsend to the sailor," got hie
first idea of the device from seeing a
small boy pushing an ordinary tin horn
mouth downward Into a hogshead of
water. The air thus compressed was
forced rapidly through the small end,
with a whistling noise, and that same
principle is now embodied in all the ap
paratus supplied by the Government,
the rising of the tide or action of the
waves driving the air into the horn.

CIVING OUT THE POTATOES.
An Old Soldier's Reminiscences of an
Event in Army Lifo.
"Sometimes," said the old soldier,
"we got considerable many potatoes,
and then again we wouldn't have any
at all for weeks; very likely nothing
Lut hard bread and coffee and pork,
and maybe corned beef, and perhaps
beans; but whether we got them often
or seldom, potatoes were always more
or less of a luxury.
"When potatoes were issued by the
commissary, when we came to draw
our rations, would of course get a cer
tain quantity, proportioned to the num
ber of men we had on duty in the com
pany. If we had forty men the pota
toes we got, when we came to count
them out, might number sixty. If
there were sixty potatoes for forty men
obviously some of them would have to
be cut in two, or else they would have
to be given out two to some men and
one to others, and that is what waa
done; a man got two small potatoes or
one big one. For myself I preferred
two small ones; but of course I took
whatever was given to me, and said
nothing; but I liked it better to get two
potatoes, so as not to risk everything
in one package. I have known a big
handsome potato that a man had car
ried gravely to his tent, filled with de
lightful anticipations as he went along,
to turn out bad Inside.
"There was no greater test of a cook's
management than the way he gave out
potatoes, and the man who could do
this to the satisfaction of everybody
waa a good deal ot a man. It is im
possible to give everybody exactly the
same quantity, but an effort to get as
near to this as possible, a spirit of fair
ness, was recognized instantly, and no
body expected more. The potato he
got might not be so big by a quarter as
the one he saw put on the plate of the
man ahead of him, but he said nothing;
somebody had got to have tue other
potato, and it might just aa like have
come to him.
"But something more than fairness
was required to give out the potatoes
successfully; a man had got to keep
the run of what he had given out and
the number of men supplied, and have
some idea of the number of potatoes
left and the number of men to come.
He could give himself some margin by
Issuing the big potatoes first; on a
pinch, along at the end, he could give
out to three or four men a single one
of the biggest of the smalled potatoes,
instead of two. But he must know
whether there were any men who had
not come yet and whether they were,
likely to turn up or not, and he must
keep the run of all these things with
out stopping to think, aa he forked up
the potatoes from the camp kettle and
put them on the plates held out to him
by the men as they passed. And gen
erally he came out just right. More
than once I have known him to put
the last potato on the last man's plate.
"But he did not always bring things
out with that nicety. I have known as
many as three men on the end of the
line to be left without any potatoes.
All gone. Well, now, there was a sit
uation. No potatoes issued for a month

Strong in my heart old memories awake,

.HEN first Edith Lor
ing realized the sad
trat h that she was
orphaned, that the
father who had
lavished upon her
all that wealth coald
yield had died a
bankrupt at an unexpected crisis in
the finan?ai world, the doable shock
seemed more than she could bear.
Fer a time it paralyzed ber energies,
bat when at last tho dread question,
What should she do? was put before
her in all its unvarnished plainness,
pride and her own strength of will
came to her rescue, and sho answered,
brushing the tears from her bright
eyes and holding erect the regal head :
"Anything rather than live depen
dent upon others. I will work."
Then, when the weary days merged
into weeks and months, and she finally
sought and obtained a position as
governess in Mrs. Elwood's family,
and bade farewell to her old home,
where she had spent so many happy
hours to enter upon the threshold of
her new life, it seemed as though a
hand of iron had grasped her heart and
clutched it in a vise. She lived two
lives-an outer life, in whioh her sweet
voice never wavered, and where she
wore a smile whose hollowness the
children, her little charges, oould not
fathom ; and au inner life, which
sometimes grew to such agony that
almost it betrayed ber ; but the tears
rarely roso beyond the fountain-head.
And though at times the crown of
thorns sho daily wore pressed hard
upon the tired young brow, she car
ried it unllinchingly. At first, as the
days brought each their fresh burden
and every hour seemed to give birth
to some new and harder duty, a hope,
unbidden, shone ever through the
darkest clouds that Douglas Ballings
would release her ere her thralldom
became unbearable. In bygone days,
though no positive engagement bound
them, his words, his every act were
unmistakably the words and acts of u
lover. At her father's death she had
heard nothing from him, but each day
some fragrant dowers had been sent
her, which she felt assured could come
only from him.
Then followed the announcement of
her loss of fortune, and from that day
she had heard nothing of the recreant

she donned her outer wraps and hast

Before the door stood two sleighs,
ene that belonged to her hostess, the
other a beautiful little cutter, with a
pair of prancing steeds, held by a
groom in full livery, while in tho
drawing-room tat its owner, waiting
for MissElwooJ, the daughter of tho
house, who had this winter made her
debut ia society.
Edith, unconscious of any one's
presence, ran hastily into the room to
fee if Mrs. Elwood awaited her, and
for a moment the blood surged up in
a glad tide, for there before the open
fireplace 6tood Douglas Ballings,
aloue. He had como then at last;
but her outstretched hand drops to
her side, her look of happy surprise
vanishes, ns sho reads in his face only
utter amazement at ber sudden appar
ition. In a moment she realizes it is
not she whom he seeks.
"Pardon me, Mr. Railings. I
thought tho drawing-room deserted,
or expected to find only Mrs. Elwood.
I imagined you were abroad."
"I returned only last week, and this
is a most welcome surprise. May 1

beside Mire. Elwood, aud was whirled
from his sight. As he turns a moment
later to meet Miss Elwood, there is a
perplexed look in his face which ha

But she detects nothing beyond the
seeming delight which he can so well

once more to let him be her friend.
"At least, Edith, let me explain."
"Explaio, Mr. Railings? I cannot
understand, sir, what explanation is
necessary. Allow me to assure you I
consider none due me."
This is all that passed between them
until one morning, when Mrs. Elwood
has given her a holiday and she has
taken advantage of it for a quiet walk,
6he hears behind ber a quick tread,
and io another moment Mr. Railings
had accosted her.
"This is a most unexpected pleas
ure, Miss Edith. Will you allow me
to join you?"
"I came out, Mr. Rallinga, to be
alone, and I should prefer it."
"Edith, lieten to me ; I must speak.
Why do you avoid me? "When I left
this country for Europe I wrote -you a
little note, explaining why I was called
away, leaving you my address and
begging you to write to me. No letter
reached me, and ou my return 1 heard
of your added misfortunes. I could
hear nothing more. When 1 found
you at Last, so bravely earning your
own support, it gave mo a new respect
for you. I know full well how little
worthy I am to ask a favor at your
hand, but at least let me try to win
back some of the friendly feeling I feel
assured you once gave me."
"That I will not deny, Mr. Railings ;
nor will I deny that, for a time, I
missed my friend; bnt I have so
schooled myself that that feeling has
grown into callousness. The rose,
once blighted, cannot reblossom ; the
heart onoe trampled upon bears the
cruel impress forever. I have learned
at least contentment, and let me beg
that this shall be our last interview."
"Have you indeed grown so hard,
Edith? When I knew that you had
lost everything, and was dependent
solely upon the labor of your own
brain and hands, I longed, darling,
oh, so earnestly, to say to you : 'Ooma
to me. Let me share your bnrden, or
lighten it all I can.' You have judged
me cruelly, Edith. I am not so base
as you imagine. I have enough for
both. Let me try to win back at least
a little of tho old feeling, with the
hopo that at a later day I may plead
with you to be my wife."
For a moment Edith wavered. There
was a ring of truth in his words sha
_?u\, un tue wuria was true.
Can you think thut I, living in the
house with Miss Elwood, can be ignor
ant of tho attentions you have paid
her? Nay, do not attribute this to
personal feeling, for, believe mo, it is
a matter of indifference, save that your
conduct ia unworthy a gentleman."
"In visiting Miss Elwood, if I have
erred, it has been through my love for
you. I have gone there hoping to see
you, yearning for the knowledge that
you were well at least, and longing to
break through the crust of ice in which
you infolded yourself. I admire Miss
Elwood only as a friend, and do not
for one moment flatter myself she
entertained a different feeling toward
me. This is folly, dear. Look at me

"Oh, Miss Loring," she says, "Mr.

"Very sad," was the quiet reply, but
as she spoke the words the ice seemed

During all the3e months she had
scarcely heard Douglas Raliings'a
name, and; to her surprise, his
absence from the household had been
but casually mentioned ; and Miss El

seemed to have no time to note that
such was the case. His words were
tjue, then, when he told her he had
been to her only as a friend. Could
it be that it was she who had honored
him, and not ho her !
When consciousness returned, and
with it the memory of their last meet

PLEASANT LITERATURE VOR
DRESSMAKING AN ART.
Writing on the subject of practical
dressmaking .'in the Woman'u Home
Companion, Mary Katharina Howard
"The day has come when dress
makers can and do look upon their
calling as a profession that commands
respeot. They are now, rightfully
termed artists, and are just as much
entitled to the name of artist as the
men and women who create life-like
statues from marble, or who with pen
cil and colors reproduce nature with
master strokes, providing she does the
work conscientiously, with careful
thought and study, with always a re
gard for the eternal fitness of things.
No class of women anywhere has ac
complished as much and made as mnch
progress with so little help as have the
dressmakers. Artists, doctors, law
yers and people in all professions have
recourse to libraries whose shelves aro
filled with books containing valuable
information and assistance in their
lino, but there is a curions dearth of
literature on subjects useful to either
the professional or amateur dress
maker. While wo have raauy Ameri
can and foreign fashion jouruals suf
ficiently versatile-and fetching in thcr
styles of fabric and details of cut in
dress, there is nothing to tell how to
out, fit, baste and sew, or the whys
and wherefores of doing certain things
in certain ways to obtain the best re
sults. Dressmakers are prono to sel
fishness, and keep good points they
may discover in their line to them
selves, while in of.her professions more
liberality is shown in this particular,
and new ideas aro published and spread
broadcast for tho good of all inteiested
in the same lino of thought and study.
"Until this narrow-mindedness is over
come, and dressmakers become more
altruistic, they will labor to a disad
vantage. Many women who have
talent for creating handsome, stylish
and well fitting gowns are denied the
opportunity of showing their ability
in thie line, ali for the want of oppor
tunity to educate thoir propensities,
and a friendly, sympathetic baud of
encouragement from those whose
knowledge is sufficient to lead the less
fortunate. Dressmaking, when not
properly understood,means the hardest
and most wearing drudgery in which
a woman can engage. But properly
Btudied, and practiced accordingly, is
made comparatively easy and very re

In these days when so many young
women look lorward to a career, the
nnobtrusive sphere of the home is of
Passing by all that might, from the
standpoint of sentiment and filial
piety, be said in favor of the old-fasn
ioned, and at present, much despised
occupation of housework, let us look
at it from a purely business point of
Here is a family in moderate cir

and for self-culture. As she has no
board to pay, her inoome of-five huu
dred dollars enables her to dress well,
and though she spends money freely,
?he has already a nice little sum laid by
in the savings bank. Meantime her
mother with the aid of an indifferent
girl, to whom she pays three dollars
and half a week, and whoso board and
waste amount to as much more, cares
for the household, sending out the
washing and ironing.
Suppose the daughter should give up
ker position in the store in order to
help at home, having persuaded her
mother to dismiss the maid of all
work, and to pay her what would thus
be saved, namely, seven dollars a week.
Her duties in this capacity, shared
by her mother as in the past-for in a
family of seven one pair of hunds can
not well do everything-would leave
her free for at least three hours every
afternoon; sho would also havo all her
evenings, and, as a rule, ono or two
mornings in each week, she would find
un hour or more at her own disposal.
In these leisure hours sho would find
time for her own sewing, including
'dressmaking, and thus would be able
to save the amount of her dressmaker's
bills-probably fifty dollars in tho
course of the year. There would still
be ample time for study and for social
duties as well as for benevolent and
charitable work. AU told, her income
above her expenses would be less than
at present by about one hundred dol
lars; and, if she were earning money
in order to aid in the support of the
family, this sum would be worth con
sidering. But, under the circum
stances, she might well regard her loss
in dollars and cents as more than over
balanced by the gain iu freedom from
confining hours, and in leisure for the
cultivation of her mind and for efforts
in behalf of others.
Nor would the advantage b? all on
one side. The mother, relieved of
the worry of inefficient time-serving

service of her daughter, would grow

Historic Trees iu New York.
On West 159th street and St. Nicho
las avenue, Washington Heights,stand
a number of remarkeble trees. They
were formerly the grounds surround
ing the old Jumel mansion, which is
now known as Earle Cliff. They are
Egyptian cypress, and have a history,
like everything pertaining to this re
markable mansion and its grounds.
They were sent as a present to Napo
leon Bonaparte from the Sultan of
Egypt as a gift of honor, but arrived
in Havre, France, after the battle of
Waterloo. Stephen Jumel, who was
in France at the time, and a personal
friend of Napoleon, succeeded in gain
ing an audience with the Emperor the
night before ho was banished to the
Island of St. Helena. Napoleon pre
sented these trees to Jamel, who
brought them to America on the dipper
ship Eliza, which he had chartered
with the hope of aiding Napoleon to
escape to this country. These trees,
when brought here, had their native
earth still clinging to their roots.
They were planted as described above,
where they flourished and grew to a
largo size,spreading out their peculiar
branches wide over their adopted soil
-a mute reminder of the decay of
empires as well as people. I would
recommend that the park Commis
siouers remove them to Central Park,
as they are probably tho only ones in
country, and oertainly none other with
such a unique history.-New York
(hicerest Town in England.
The most curious town in England

Northwich, as everyone knows, is
the centre of tho salt industry. On
nearly all sides of the town aro big
salt works, with their engines pump
ing hundreds of thousands of gallons
of brine every week.

A Shrewd Rat.
A rat was recently caught aliva on

and tho beast was thrown from the
trap into the water without being

ing in the wake of the ship to pick up
scraps of food thrown overboard by
the steward stopped several times, en
deavoring to pick the rat up.
Once the bird got too close to the
rat's jaws and tbe beast grabbed it by

succeeded in killing the bird. When
the gnll was dead the rat scrambled
upon the bird's body, and, hoisting

as a rudder succeeded in steering for

Born Willi Hide Reversed*
Thomas McKinney, a farmer living
in the town of Union, N. Y., has ti
curiosity that would provo attractive
for any mu-eum. Last Wednesday
his cow gave birth to a calf which had
three legs behind uni one in front,
the single limb being of unusual size,
and tapering down from the breast.
The skin of the animal was smooth,
without a Bigu of bair. It lived only
a short time, and ou being dissected it
was found that the uudcr hide ol the
skin was covered with a tino downy fur,
tho hide having the appearance of be

Heal.-Nev lurk World,
Sulking a Deer on the Ice.
Wo had gone up in the groat bay
near the head of the lake, when the
boys and dogs, rummaging around the
woods and along the shore, started a
deer and chased it onto the ice, and
we had the most exciting chase Im
mediately after I ever took part In.
We did not harm the animal, and bad
wo wished to do so we couldn't, for
there wasn't a gun in the crowd; but we
made him "make the effort of his life''
before ho broke the trocha we built
around him and got away. When we
sighted him he was making straight
across the bay, which is five miles wide,
end tie Ice was so slippery that he
could not make anything like the
usual time of his when they throw
their souls into their heels, and scatter
miles behind them with an easy indif
ference most beautiful to witness.
We played wolf on him. "Doc."
Spalding, who was riding the ice bi
cycle, shot straight ahead, and very
soon passed him, and forced him to
turn, and when he did turn there was
a ring of skaters all around him, and
for an hour he .played with us very
much as a four-legged animal might.
We got him running in a circle, but
we were unable to catch him, for every
time any ono tried it, that venture
some individual either failed to get a
hold on him, or, succeeding, was hurled
as from a catapult along the ice, to
tho great delight of all the rest. It
waa the merriest skating party I ever
witnessed, although the deer might not
have seen much matter for merriment
But he was perfectly safe, unless hla
wind played out before ours did, of
which the event proved there was small
danger. One wing of the circular
trocha we had formed In the line got
out of breath and slowed up, a gap was
formed in the line, and the deer went
through it like a Sash, and the last we
saw of him was "hull down," and 20
ing as merrily as If freshly started.
A pearl that was afterwards sold to
a jeweler for $75 was found in the giz
zard of a turkey in London recently.

Woman's Nerves. ^%
Mrs. Platt Talks About Hysteria.
When a nerve or a set of nerves supplying
any organ in the body with Its due nutri
ment grows weak, that organ languishes.
When the nerves become exhausted and
die? so to speak, the organ falls into de
cay; What is to be done? The answer is,
do not allow the weakness to progress;
stop the deteriorating process at once !
Do you experience fits of depression, alter
nating with restlessness? Are your spirits
easily affected, so that one moment you laugh
and the next fall into convulsive weeping?
Again, do you feel something like a ball rising
in your throat and threatening to choke you,
all tho senses perverted, morbidly sensitive to
light and sound, pain in ovary, and pain es
pecially between tho shoulders, sometimes loss
of voice and nervous dj-spepsia ? If so, you are
hysterical, j*our uterine nerves are at fault.
You must do something to restore their tone.
