Remdnlscences of Henry Clay.
Eli Grant is an aged neo lving I
Lounisville, Ky. Whien Eli was aot
13 years old he went on a trip to New
Orleans with his master, Edward Carter,
a wealthy planter. There he had occa
sion to act for a few days as the valet of
Henry Clay, who was then visiting in
the Crescent City. He was a bright,
sprightly boy, and the statesman be
cane so much attached to him that he
bought him from his master, paying the
rather-stiff price of $1,200. In a short
time he went to his new master's home,
at, Ashland, and lived as the favored ser
vaiit of the man " who would rather be
right than be President " for a number
"I kin remember old Mr. Clay jest
like it wur yisterday," said Eli. "I
allers loved him, and [allers love to talk
about him." Then the old man went on
to talk about some of Mr. Clay's char
acteristics in domestic life. He said that
he was exceedingly fond of his wife, and
in addressing her always called her "my
dear." He was kind and indulgent to
his children and generous in his treat
ient toward his servants. His favorite
child was Anna, the wife of Mr. James
Irvine, whose death was announced to
him while he was at a fashionable din
ner party in Washington. The news
caused a fearful shock, and Eli thinks
that it was the prime caise of his mas
ter's death, which occurred a short time
His hobby at home was his stock.
He was passionately fond of fine horses
and cattle, and would always see per
sonally that they had the best attention.
Eli tolls of a fine Nefoundland dog that'
was presented to his master by an ad
miring friend who lived in Nova Scotia.
The dog was very intelligent, and the
"Sage of Ashland" trained him with
his own hand to perform a number of
wonderful tricks, one of which Eli re
members to be as follows: In one of
the pastures in which Mr. Clay allowed
his finost stock to run was a fine well
with a large trough attached, by means'
of which the cattle were supplied with
water. The water was drawn from the
well by the bucket and spindle system
but it required a great deal of manual
labor to keep it in operation. To avoid
this, Mr. Clay constructed a small tread.
miiill, attached it to the spindle of the
well with an iron crank, and then trained
the dog to walk the treadmill. In this
manner the trough was kept constantly
filled with water, and the clever dog be
came so accustomed to the performance
that, without the necessity of being bid
den, ho made it his duty to watch the
well constantly, and see that the trough
always had in it a sufficient supply of
water to keep the coppers of the blooded
stock cool. Mr. Clay loved the dog,
and was very fond of watching him go
through with the treadmill performance.
In speaking of Mr. Clay's fondness
for horses, EIli tells of a fine race mare
the statesman owned called the Golden
Cup. Upon a certain occasion the mare
was matched to run a four-mile race
against a famous horse owned by Col.
Sidney Burbridge. The race came off
at Lexington, and everybody in that
p~art of the country was p resent. Col.
Abe Buford, old man Shy, and other
distinguished turfmen were backing the
mare, while Col. Burbridge, Gen. War
field, and other well-known horsemen
were playing the horse. "The race
wur run," said Eli, " from eend to eend,
and when dey come out a puffin' and a
snortin' at do end of de four miles de
Golden Cup was just de length of her
mane in do lead. D)e old marse he jest
fell on de mar's neck an' he laughed like
he had gone clean mad. He kissed de
Golden Cup an' sent her home, an' after
dlat nebber allowed her to do another
lick of work. An' I tell you," said old Eli,
growing confidential, "Marse Clay just
won $30,000 on dat race, 'case I seed de
-money all in big bank bills, and de very
next week he went to work hisself and
guy me a pair of brown-lined store shoes
dat cost hum free dollars in Lexington."
Anecdote of Lord Redesdale.
Early one morning he made his way to
the mansion of the Earl of Lucan. He
had started for the races, and was dressed
in sporting garb, his cap put on awry
and a cigar between his lips. He rang
att the front door, and the Earl's best man
-an exqusite of the first water-an
swered the summons.
" Is the Earl at home?"
" No, sir! Trhe Hearl is not at 'ome."
H~e mistook the caller for a sportive ser
vant, very likely seeking hemploy
"1Do you know if he has gone to Wind
sor, my manl"
" No, 1 don't know hif 'e 'as gone to

his lordship went, really enjoy'ng the
thing, and shortly returned wit a tan
kard of foaming hahf-an'-half.
The valet drank it with a keen relish
-emptied the pot-and then offered to
return it, with:
" There, mygood fellow-I'm much-"
But the visitor put the pot back, and
cut the speech short with:
" Return the tankard yourself, my

How She Kept the Secre.
There are peveral people living, in
Tarrytown, N. Y., who rememberthe
captors of Andre. A rather diverting
incident connected with his capture is
related by a New York paper, showg'
the excitable temper of those old war
times. Every movement was critical,
and news traveled too slowly to be kept
long after it was received. ;
rs. See, an old woman livn g on the
Bedford road, about two miles [row the
Tarrytown depot, tells a picturdso*
tale of events succeeding the captthe of
Maj. Andre, as it was told her by t4e.
The men-called "Skinners"-who
captured Andre went directly to " Miu'
Tavern," near White Plains-a hostelry
presided over by Aunt Polly Reed. Aunt
Polly was notorious for her curiosity and
inability to keep a secret.
While the ham and eggs were sizzling
in the pan for the hungry " Skinners,
Aunt Po17y was struggling to ascertain
the identity of the *melancholy young
stranger, who was so handsomely clothed
in a blue overcoat, claret-colored coat,
and nankeen waistcoat and breeches.
Finally Paulding seized her by the wrist
and drew her close to him.
"Can you keep a secret ?"
"Yes!' stammered the old woman,
with hardly suppressed eagerness.
" We've got a British spy."
In three minutes the old wofian had
intrusted household cares to her girl,
saddled her white horse, and was gallop
ing off to the next house, in a place then
called "Twitchings." The " Skinners"
finished their meal, and departed
toward " Twitchings." As they ap
proached the house they caught sight of
Aunt Polly flying up the road on her
white horse, daylight showing between
herself and the saddle at every leap.
Her hair streamed out behind. In one
hand she swung her huge poke-bonnet'
by the strings, while she shrieked in a q
shrill, quavering voice,
" They've got the spy ! They've got
the spy I"
Wanted a Change.
A New York firm daling in pictures,
niottoes, etc., was visited by a small
dealer from a village over in Jersey, and
the man was greatly struck with the
motto: "God Bless Our Home."
"Now, that's something original and
unique," he said, as lie held one at arm's
length. "Down in our town we
just hanker after original designs, and
unique literature, and I believe I can sell
a hundred of these. You may make my
order an even hundred."
He went away well pleased, and his
goods were duly shipped, and nothing
more was heard from him until the other
day. Then he entered the store to make
some new purchases, and he was asked
to look at a new style of mottoes just
"I hain't ino more interest in mottoes,"
lhe sighed, as lhe glanced at "What 'is
home without a miother?''
"You remember I bought a hundred
of you last fall?"
"Yes: and how did they sell?"
"Well, everybody seemed to hanker
after 'em, and they went off like hot
cakes. I sold the whole lot out in two
weeks, and in less than a month there
were three slander suits, twvo applications
for divorce, and a dozen assaul and bat
tery cases in the courts."
"But you don't lay it to the mottoes,
"Well, I dunno. I've lived in Jersy
27 years, and been in this business ove~r
20, and I think a dollar chromo, showing
a pretty fair hill, a glorious sunset, and
a decent sort of pond with a duck in it,
hits our, case a little better than anything
else. I've got to get something for a
change, and if you haven't anything

TIal by Jury.
Sonmc people helieve that this form of
trial is not perfectly free fromi prejudice.
But in our section, St. .Jacob~s Oil has been
tried by that gr; at jury-the pulie-anfd
been judged the infallible cure for Rhieu
matismn anmd all painful diseases.
Tau finest floors are said to be seen in
Russia. For those of the highest grade
tropical woods are exclusively employed.
Fir and pine are never used, as in conse
quence of their sticky character they at
tract and retain dust and dirt, and there
by soon become blackened. Pitch pine,
too, is liable to shrink, even after being
well seasoned. The mosaic wood floors
in Russia are of extraordinary beauty.
Those Vassar Girls.
.This is the way a Vassar girl tella- a
joke : " Girls I I heard the best thing
to-day. It was just too funny. I can't
remember how it came about1 but one of
the girls said to Prof. Mitchell-oh,
dear!i I can't remember )ust what she
said, but Prof. Mitchell s answer was
just too funny for any use. I forget just
exactly what he said, but it was too
grood for any thing I"
(Sparta (Wis.) Heraldl.]
As an exhibition of the intrinsic worth of
St. .Jacobs Oil, we think the ease referred to,
that of Mrs. 0. WV. Hubbard, of this town,
cured of Sciatic Rheumatism of long stand
ing b~y the Oil, is certainly striking, andl, bie
,vondl all doubt, conclusive as to its enficacy.

Ridiqg by the foot o$ lattin, over the
where 700- year ago, Saladin an
nihilated the Crusaders ower in Pales
tine; we at length reached a ridge vbiV
we looked out on the distant hm. of
Bashan, and far below us on a 4ark blue
pear or harp-shaped sheet of Water, ly
ing snugl i a deep irclosure of high
brown * . Though less thml thirteen
miles long and seven miles broad, yetj
measured by the events it has witnes~d,
it in a kind of Pacific ocean. It was the
Sea of Galilee.
Az we moved over the long way down-,
ward to its level-850 feet below the
Mediterranean sea-we had time to
fix and grasp its whole aspect and -sur
roundings. It lacks boldness of outline,.
for its hills slope gradually back from
the shore, or leave a narrow plain, as at
Gennesaret and Buthia. But the lights
and shadows lie sweetly on the hillsde
at night and morning; the northern end
is broken into pleasant little bays and
Hermon looms grandly up beyonA, far
off, yet seemingly near. The whole as
poet of the lake is one that suggests the
thought and the lack of beautiful homes.
It was still a long ride to the lake. The
region we were passing, once brimful of
life and activity, was -utterly forsaken
now. The entire lake lay spread before
us, and nearly the whole of its coast
line, along or near which once lay the
cities of 'larichea, Tiberias, Hippo, Ga
mala, Gergesa, Bethsaida, Ohorazin, Ca
pernaumn, Madala and Beth Arbel. Of
these cities, Tiberias once had its Senate
of 600; Gamala was able to resist and
defeat Vespasian at the head of three
legions, and when captured by Vespa
sian and Titus it lost 400 in the fight,
and 5,000 who hurled -themselves, or
were pushed down the precipices; while
Tarichea, according to Josephus, was
able to furnish 16,500 for slaughter in a
sea fight with the Romans, 1,200 slain
in cold blood in the stadium, 6,000 cap
tive youth to dig for Nero in the isth
mus, and 30,000 to be sold into slavery.
The only existing representatives of this
strength and activity were the little clus
ter of huts called Medjel (Magadala) and
the shrunken Tiberias, with its 2,000 in
habitants. From our path not a ves
tige of the other places could be dis
cerned. It was near sunset when we en
tered Tiberias. We followed the road
through the gate, but could easily have
passed through the rents in the walls.
The now squalid city, mentioned but
once in the New Testament, has been
the chief lome of Jewish learning since
the destruction of Jerusalem, Here the
Jerusalem Talmud was completed, and
here is now what may be called the pres

Novel and Interesting News.
The Boston Globe has made a happy dIeali.
In an extraordinary special edition dlated
January 1, "1981," it presentsq the news of
one hundred years from now, in a highly in
teresting and elating manner. The phono
grap)h in divorce suits; Suniday-school ex
cursion in air ears; terrible aceitlents in m dl
air; invention of a b)urglar bouncer, are re
spectfully treated from the standpoint of the
advanced journalism of that day. News by
the talkogram andl photoph one from all
parts of th~e world is fully presented. To
show the progress of those times, it is only
necessary to state that "Hiram Grant's bay
