FIRST COAL OIL LAMPS. \
Some Raro Heirloom? In Possession
of a Georgetown Family;
A family living in Georgetown,
vho have taken care of old heir
looms left them by a long line of
ancestors, have in their possession
a number that,aro exceedingly rare
&n,\ curious. The objects in.ques
tion are specimens of the two^?arli
est coal oil lamps invented. fThe
mind of man runs very much' in a
groove, and,) although he appears
anxious for change and progress,
there are few things that annoy him
inore. . .
The first ?oal ou lamp, of %which
this family has a specimen, was
made of brjiss, in imitation of a
candle and ' candlestick, even to
painting the upper part white in
imitation ofi the former. The in
terior o? this imitation candie held
the oil, the wick-a small affair;
thc same, in fact, that was used in
candles-emerging from ail aper
ture in the head of the metal can
dle, just as in the real one. Such a
thing as a chimney or shade was
A short time after thia lamp ap
peared some other person invented
a coal oil lamp made of glass, in im
itation of a very largo candlestick.
Thc middle part swelled out into
something like a globe, in which tho
oil was placed. It took some five or
six inventions before the coal oil
lamp became what it is today. Tho
Georgetown family has a specimen
of thc second lamp invented as well
as the first.
These first coal oil lamps are to
day rarer even than candlesticks,
for the reason that only a few were
made, the improvement being so
rapid that the first awkward imita
tion of a candle had hardly reached
the market before some other per
son began inventing lamps, each a
little more like the coal oil lamp of
today than the first, until the in
vention was perfected. The spec'.
mens in question are some cf tho
first ever brought to America at a.
time when they were a curiosity and
when every one used candles.

A Story About the Pansy.
A pretty fable about the pansy is
current among French and German
children. The flower has five petals
?nd five sepals. In most pansies,
especially of the earlier and less
highly developed varieties, two of
the petals are plain in color and
three are gay. Tho two plain pet
als have a single sepal, two of the
gay petals have a sepal each, and
the third, which is the largest of all,*
has two sepals. The ^able is that
the pansy represents a family con
sisting of husband, wife ana four
daughters, two of the latter being
stepchildren of the wife.
The plain petals are the stepchil
dren, with only one choir;.the two
small gay petals''are the daughters,
with a chair each, and the.large gay
petal is the wife,- with tiro choirs.
To find the father one must strip
away the petals until _the stamens
and pistils are bare. They have a
fanciful resemblance to an old man
with a flannel wrap about his neck,
his shoulders upraised and his feet
in a bathtub.
The pride of the Scotchman in his
native land is well known, and man 7
stories have been told of his ingen
ious appropriation of the wit and
wisdom of other nationalities. Per
haps no more amusing? instance of
this gift of transference has ever
been recorded than one said to have
occurred at a dinner given in Lon
don by members of the Highland so
Shakespeare, Milton and all the
most important poets and prose
writers of present and past times
were found to have the saving strain
of Scottish ancestry, the proof of
fered in each case being entirely sat
isfactory to the company.
At lost there rose a man who
struck a still more daring note.
'There's the Emperor Macrinus
and the great philosopher, Macro
bius, when you come to clear evi
dence," he said calmly, "and why
has nobody mentioned Alexander
the Great, who waa on#of tho Mac
Edons, was he^not?"
Animal "Freight Car" In Mexico.
In several, parta of. Mexico sil
freight is carried on the backs of
burros. Heavy seems the burden
which is resting on this patient an
imal's back, yet he bears it stolidly
and doubtless never murmurs at luis
hard fate. For many generations
his ancestors have borne equally
heavy burdens in this fashion, and
?presumably bia; deeoendnnts will
continue to bear similarly heavy
burdens until that golden tim? ar
"rives when all freight will ,be car
ried by railroads. Mexico, however,
is a large country, and some time
must elapse before it ia thoror vMy
honeycombed with railroads. Mean
while these patient freight carriers
will continue to form one of tho pic
turesque flights of th&oountry.

. "It ls a corl?os fact," said a mem*
ber of Company A, Third Maryland,
"that military execution had a peculiar
fascination for men who wore dally
accustomed to see hundreds slain in
hattie. Men who shovel a breastwork
In on a trench full of slain comrades
and chew hardtack or eat salt pork
while at the job with a callousness
which only such frequent scenes or oc
currences would make possible In the
human heart Locarno peculiarly sensi
tive and alive to the solemn parade
and formalities of a military execution.
"In our regiment we had a private
soldier bcnteneed io be shot tor desert
ing to the enemy. His name was
Thompson, and he belonged to Com
pany K. This man Thompson had de
serted oC vedette post one night and
Gomo two months afterward came Into
our lines, where members of his own
company happened to bo on picket
duty. Thompson did not calculate on
this. His Idea In coming; in was to sur
render as a Confederate soldier and bo
sent north. It happened near to the
Weldon railroad, where our division of
the Ninth corps was then posted. Of
course, on being recognized, he was
taken to headquarters, and a court
martial was Immediately convened. It
leaked ont somehow that Thompson
was not the humble soldier he seemed,
but a Confederate officer and spy. He
bad been an officer In the United States
navy before the war. He resigned and
went south, where he secured the com
mission of colonel of Infantry.
"Being a Marylander of family, ef
forts were made to save his life, but in
a quiet way, as his relatives feared to
disclose his real identity for fear he
would be hanged as a spy Instead of
shot as a deserter. Friday, the day
set for execution in the Army of the
Potomac, came around too soon for
Thompson and his relatives. The night
previous be had been Informed that all
efforts bad failed at Washington. I
was on guard duty over bim, and my
brother was one of the detail of twelve
men selected as the firing squad. My
brother didn't like the job, and came
to the tent where I was on guard to
consult with me how to get out of it
Thompson overheard our conversation,
and, knowing my brothel* by name, he
broke in: 'Say, Tip, you must not back
ont. I want you hi the squad, as I
know you are a dead shot and will
save me from the sergeant.'
"It was the practice for the sergeant
If tbe firing squad failed to kill the
doomed man with a volley to place the
muzzle of his rifle against the temple
of the prisoner and blow out his brains.
"After Tip bad consented the officer
of the guard permitted us to play cards
with the prisoner. He bad a roll of
bills, and we were soon in a stiff poker
game. Two guards, including myself,
my brother Tip and* Thompson, com
posed the quartet. We played until
gray daylight, and Thompson skinned
the party of every dollar. He had
phenomenal luck and watched the
"In the afternoon be was to die, and
about noon he asked to see the lieuten
ant of the firing squad. Handing the
officer $600, he asked him to divide it
equally among the men detailed to
"The division was' drawn np and
formed three sides of a square, the
fourth side being open, where the grave
of Thompson was freshly dug. The
band played the dead march in "Saul/
and Thompson, at the head of tho fir
ing squad, marched around tba three
sides of the square, with the coffin in
which he was to be inclosed carried Im
mediately behind him. Beaching tho
oen space, tho coffin was set down.
' nompson seated himself on tho end of

paces distant. Th? death warrant was
read, and the chaplain tied bis hand
kerchief over the p*-isoner'a eyes, I
watched Thompson, curious to note If
he would hear the reports of the mus
kets that killed him. Presently I heard
the lieutenant's low voice: 'Beady!
"In the next instant Thompson top
pled back into his coffin a dead man.
Tho reports of the muskets he never
beard, as I saw bim swiftly fall over
before I heard the guns crack, and so
I settled this disputed point to my own

Lynchburg, Ya., special to Rich
mond Dispatch: A traveling man from
Lynchburg was recently on a Southern
train going to Charlotte, N. C. Near
him was seated a lady with several
packages and a small baby. The lady
was young and pretty, and aa she had
to get off at a small station this side
of Charlotte, the gentleman from the
Hill City politely offered his services
in assisting her to get off. Picking
up the packages, she requested him to
follow with the baby, which, having
committed himself, he had to do.
Slowly he desoended the oar steps
with bis precious burden and care
fully adjusted its coverings so that
no rude blasr should chill its inno

been met by friends and was so busy
exchanging greetings that she seemed
to have forgotten all about the baby
and its new protector until just as the
train pulled out she relieved him of
his bundle of humanity. Then it
was too late; the train had gone, and

man has avowed to be more careful as

Two Tory Wicked Cities.
Geo. William Booth, head of the
Salvation Army, and author of "ID
Darkest England," expresses the fol
lowing gloomy views regarding Chicago
and New York. "Chicago and New
York are the two wiokedest cities in
tue world. They are swamped in vice
and pleasure, and tho ohurohes aro
powerless to stem tho tide of sin.
They are growing worse and worse.
'Neither Chicago nor New York has
any hypocritical pretensions of being
good," he said. "They tolerate vioe
without blushing. The Sabbath they
desecrate and little more than one
tenth of the people attend the church
es. A great wave of an engulfing
ocean of pleasure, recreation, case and
idleness is drowning out the good and
dampening the consciences of men and ]
women. In tho fulness of wealth they
are forgetting the dangers that beset
their homes, their children and them
"Vice stalks through the streets.
In both New York and Chicago its
flagrance is unchecked. Thc young
men and young women of tho higher
order of society are growing up in lux
ury and idlep.dcs.
"Is vioe centralized in these cities?
It is not, it is widespread. It is found
in the sections where the wealthy livo
and hovers over nearly the entire area
of each metropolis. Wickedness has
spread to the fashionable sections of
the cities, and once there has not been
driven out. Instead of being combat
ed it was at first tolerated and now it
Medical Men Amazed.
Niagara Falls, N. Y., Nov. 23.
Medical men of this city are amazed at
a most remarkable case that has come
to their attention. It is believed to be
the only one of the kind recorded.
Yesterday a negro of tho name of Al
len dropped dead at the home of Farm
er Halliday. Allen had been driving
a kicking horse and when he reaohed
the Halliday house he was exoited.
Within a few mir ute s he complained
of not feeling well and almost without
warning fell over dead.
Coroner Slocum directed an autopsy
and when this was performed the doc
tors found that Allen's heart and left
lung were conneoted by a growth over
three inches long. Allen was 60years
old and to all appearances the organs
had been in this condition all his lifo.
His heart was large and in good con
dition, but his lungs showed that ho
was suffering from pneumonia. It is
understood that the heart and lung
have been preserved and that the oase
will be fully treated in medioal Jour
nals, so remarkable is it considered.

spiration, but with a slow drawl, "but
I would like to know what the devil
you've done with that dog."
Tho stranger was astonished, but
laughed heartily, and the two had a

Dreamed of Gold and Then Found lt.
Charlotte, N. C., Nov. 27.-A well
known Cabarrus county farmer named
Sternes, has found gold as the result
of a dream in whioh he says his wife,
v?ho has been dead 27 years, toM him
where to look for it.
"Last Monday night," he said, "I
could not sleep, and while 1 lay awake,
my wife, who has been dead for 27
years, came and stood by mo, and talk
ed to me. She asked mo many ques
tions, and told mc that if I would go
to a certain spot on my farm I would
find gold-plenty of gold. She indi
cated tho spot very clearly, and left
me. I soarcely waited for it to become
light," he continued, "to start for the
spot my wife had indicated, taking my
boy with me, and as soon as we oould
see, began searohing for gold. And
found this," he said, showing a rough
lump of virgin gold about as largo as a
man's thumb-"and I believe there ?B
plenty of it there." His son also ex
