-who having passed miany years
in A merica, and being no stranger
to England, spoke English witl
much flueney-said: 'I am wel

"I shall, and after dinner I wil

company excepting Skeptic, wh<
laughed and helped himself t<
wine, and congratulated himsel
on being so much eleverer that
The tricks played by Hlermant
are thus described:
'Presently Herr Hermann ring
the bell. and tells the man-servant
who answers it, to fetch som
cards. Thbe man retired, and cam
back with two packs of cards i

himself to Skeptic; -open the cover,

from the pack. Skeptie looked at t
the cards, and we all looked at tle o

him when we were ready. Each V
man took a card and put it. back. s
Then we all had a shufile at the
pacK, excepting Skeptic, who t
thought he knew all about the
trick,and the conjurer was brought li
back in tie time.
'-He took the cards in his hand.
;There are eight of you,' he aid
'Each one has drawn a ( ird and re- v
placed it.: and the eigh t cards,il'you 3
have shuffled them, should be dis. b

cards a sort of flourish, and placing s
the pack on his left pamn, threw C
fromf the top the eight cards which 0
we had drawn. lie then turned r
to Skeptic, and with a good- t
humored smile inquired whether s
he had any idea how the trick was

laughed, and said nothing; bu i!
shortly afterward he was heard to

beast, the appearance of which, I
must confess, caused me to quake
for the first time in many years.
Aside from its strange and unusual
appearance, the unearthly yell it
uttered on perceiving me, which
reverberated and reverberated
through the forest, was enough to
shake the senses of the most dar
ii.g adventurer. The animal was
sone hundred yards distant from
me, and appeared to be a huge
black bear with mane aud head
like a lion, but bad horns like ai
elk upon it. Its tail was long and
busli, with dark rings. Its eyes
gleamned like a panther's, and its
.:ize was that of an ordinary ox but
somewhat longer. Just previous to
making its appearance I had shot
otf my gun at a squirrel, and felt
little prepared to meet such a fero
cious beast without any weapon of
defenSe. I imm diately set about
relxading my rifle, but had scarcely
begun when it started toward me.
I retreated in as good order as
possible, and must say I did some

until I had reached an open spot,
when I found the animal had dis

To THE BAGGAGE SMrAsrES.-A
bill w hich has passed almost unan i

Senate will carry comfort to The
hearts of travelers in that State,
and create consternation among
Ithe army of baggage smaThers
who apparently imbued with feel
ingsagainst all mankind, give ven t
to their malhee bywillfully wreck
ing the baggage of innocent and
inoffensive p)assengers whenever
it comes within their reach. T his
bill provides that if any person en
gag'ved in thcmp;loy of a railroad
company or other common carrier
shall while so engaged wilifully or
negligently break, destroy or injure
any trunk or baggage intrusted
to the custody or care of such comn
pany or carrier. he shall be fined
not less than twenty nor more
han five hundred dollars. or con
tined ini jail not less than one nor
mnore than six months. or be both
tneda and imprsOned. at the discre
tion of the jury; while for any such
injury to baggage, the railroad
Icompany or carrier shall be liable
in double damages to the owner.
If a similar law should be passed
in all the States, the result would
be a great savmgn in the wear and
tear of the temper as wvell as the
baggage of the traveling commun

suffer, and a large p)roportion of the
