-THE BLUE SAilN BOOTS.
There was a chnrch fair and
festival on band at Waynesville,
and all th3 young ladies were in a
state of feminine flutter.
Pretty brown-eyed Jenny Car
son bad one of the fancy tables.
She had also a now dress for the
~' occasion. The soft, shining folds
of dark blue silk were draped over
-'-the bed, and Jenny was kneeling
upon the floor, arranging the loops
of satin ribbon to her taste, when
Miss Bell Dorsey, who was
Jenny's most intimate friend, burstt
into the room.
'Oh, what;a pretty dress, Jenny I
You'll look ravishing in it. You
only need a pair of blue satin
boots t,o match it, and then you'll
be the best-dressed girl at the
'But-satin boots are very ex
pensive,' said Jenny, hesitatingly.
'Oh, well, yes, somewhat. But
there's nothing sets off a lady's
a1ppearance like nice shoes and I
oves. I heard Dr. Chester say

vs"d if she wore ill fitting boots

teently crossed her own pretty
-ench kids, while Jenny ner
usly put away the pretty silk.
What Dr. Chester said was be

Miss Bell presently took her i

-Yes, I do need some new shoes,

'You do, eh ? Well, what must

'Whatever you can spare, papa.'
'Well, here's a $10 bill. I guess r
at will be enough. Get a good, '

ep you warm this cold weather,

'Yes, sir. Thank you, papa.
I do the best I can,' said Jenny;
it she blushed, for in her heart
e felt very guilty.
However, she did mean to buy
pair of warm kid boots for
eryday wear. She hoped to

bich would leave her enough for

But when she stood in Turner's

'ne beauties, recalled what Dr
hester said, and, silly little puss,
r once let her vanity run away

'I'll take thorn,' she said. After
le boots were paid for, there was
irely enough left to buy her
loves and a ribbon or two.
The next day, the great one,

Jenny presided at one of the
ncy tables. She made a lovely
icture in the beautiful blue silk ;
er throat and wrists shaded with

lue boots fluttering in and out
elow the plaiting of her skirt.
Bell Dorsey was already at her
ost, and as Jenny came up she
pened her eyes wide and ex
laimed : 'Oh, my, you blue angel!
id you drop from the clouds?'
Jenny laughed, and, happening
ast then to catch a glance from
)r. Chester, who stood near,
lsbed with pleasure, while the
entle heart in her bosom throb.
Jenny had a very busy day of it.

loing this, heard her name spoken
n tbe narrow passage without.
'It's all settled, I suppose, Doc
or, between you and Miss Car

'No, Fred. I've seen the folly
of that, to-day.' The tones, which

'You astonish me ' replied!

Poor Jenny I Fortunately, there

6fter a brief struggle, she rallied.

it were a matter ot course: 'Miss
Ienny, please put t bese on ; it is too
cold a night for such thin shoes as
I see you wear.'
Poor Jenny!1 Her face was
scarlet with mortification. She
made out to utter a confused
'Thank you,' and put on the
offending overshoes without ano

doctor's arm, and they went out
Jenny's heart was beating so
fast that it almnost choked her,
but she was as determined as
ever. Before ten steps had been
taken, she said :
'Dr. Chester, do you think it
right to condemn a person for a
single fault ?'
'Certainly not,' said the doctor,
'Then, why do you condemn

'I heard every word you said to

'Miss Jenny?' He stopped,
'I did. I dion't blame you, Doc

me only a vain, silly girl. But
please hear my defence and how
sorry and ashamed I am, won't

penitent, little confession,.ending
with, 'I don't know gat you

'I think you the dearest, bravest
little girl in the world, and 'tis I
who am the fool,' cried the doctor,

Many astronomers have held [
the opinion that Alcyone, the chief
star of the Pleiades, is the centre r
about which our solar system re
volves. Very curiously, an ex

many savage and semi-civilized
tribes, who have peculiar beliefs
concering it, apparently handed
down to them from antiquity.

Numerous cases of fire from the
spontaneous ignition of coal have
been recorded. After considera
ble experimenting, Mr. W. M.
Williams has concluded that spon
taneous combustion takes place in
some degree in all cases where
coal is exposed to the atmosphere,
although the combustion may pro

temperature will amount to only
a few degrees.
Granular vegetable. carbon, sat
urated with sulphuric acid, of
which it holds about seventy
times its own volume, is now
being tested as a destroyer of
phylloxera. Buried amongst roots,
it gradually gives off sulphurous
acid gas, and this being heavier
than air, not only permeates the
soil, but hangs about the sirflace
and aspbyxiates the phylloxera.

Icebergs are of.en of enormous

Hayes saw one reaching an alti

most of the Arctic explorers have

more in height. .Pyer has esti
mated that in an iceberg 200 feet
above the water a total height of
600 to 800 feet may, as a rule, be
inferred. An exception to this
rule must be the bergs Capt. Ross
saw aground in 1500 feet of water.

In a recent address in justifica-.
tion of compulsory vaccination,
Dr. Wv. B. Carpenter, the eminent
British physiologist, presented
some interesting statistics show
ing the decrease of smnall-pox in
Great Britain with the adoption
of modern protective measures.
From 1660 to the commencement
of the present century the average
annual number of deaths from
small-pox was upwards of 4,000
for each million of inhabitants.
For the decade 1801-10 the year
ly small-pox mortality was 2,040
per million inhabitants: In 1831
-35 it had fallen to 830. In 1840
means for vaccination were po
vided by the government, and the
annual rate fell to 400 per million.
Then came compulsory vaccina
tion in 1853, and in the decade
1851-60 there were each year
but 278 deaths from small-pox in
each million inhabitants, in 1861
70 the number was 276. In 1871
80 the rate was greatly increased,
but the circumstances were so
decidedly exceptional that these
years can afford no basim' for an
argument against vaccination.
Archeological researches have

rROUBLE IN & SILVERMINE.
BY BILL NYE.
A few nights ago a well organ
zed effort was made to jump the
Jen tennial mine, which came very
)car being a success. The parties
who undertook to jump the mine
were two Rocky Mountain pole
,ats with a bad record. Almost
is soon as they entered the tun
,el from the east the men in the
mine began to.be suspicious that
somebody with a bad breath was
in the lower level. The suspicion
grew until it assumed about the
iize of a bale of hay. Maj. Dow
ney went down and threw a
chunk of free milling quartz at
the enemy. Then the Maj. went
back to the rest of the party to
hold a consultation. The rest of
the party didn't seem so tickled
to see him as his presence wasn't
agreeable under the circumstances.
Although the mine is a very val
uable one, it was almost decided at
one time to abandon it to the
jumpers. At last, however, every.
body made a grand rush for the
tunnel and demolished the enemy
with long-handled shovels. Maj.
Downey handed the above infor
mation into the office with a long
pole. He also told a friend that
he would go out of town this
forenoon to a quiet spot beyond
the graveyard and change his
clothes. The Rocky Mountain
polecat, before it is domesticated,
is not prized as a songster very
much, but he has a way of mak
ing his presence felt wherever he
goes, and even in death you can
not forget him. Tfhere was one~

How To DisiosE OF TROUBLE
SOME POLITICIANS. - Republican
politicians seem to be devoting
all their talents and skill toward
tapping the national till in as
many directions as possible and at
the same time continuing their
policy of centralization. The dis
position evinced by the party
managers at the present session
of Congress indicates that a polit

less material in the shape of par
tisans who have gone to seed, is
to be cast and paid to stay there
in blissful indolence for the bal

man becomes troublesome and
bandicaps his friends too heavily,
he will be given a sinecure posi
tion like that which General G.
bas just received, and each year
will draw his bribe and keep out
of the way of the younger aspi
rants. In fine, the surplus in the
treasury is entirely too large to
suit the theories of Republicans,
as it is an argument against a high'
protection tariff, that cannot be
successfully met. Every con
ceivable scheme is therefore be
ing adopted which will render a
larger expenditure of money ne
cessary, and necessitate the re
tention of heavy taxation and the
exhorbitant tariff. We may next
expect to see a bill passed retir
