SOMETHING AS TO SHOES.
Sonic of the Superstitions Wliicli
"conic Plucc Confidence In.
. Upper Sandusky ihoe denier relate
. little saying that he tins heard when
t' tlir g people footwear. Borne people place
considerable confidence in these superstit
ions, while other look oron them as myth.
The dealer quoted from his little note book,
the other day, a few of these amusing nay.
iDga, snch rs: "Worn on the heel spends a
good deal;" "Worn on the ball, spends it
alii" "Worn on the vamp, look oot for
crampj" "Worn on the toea, spends as he
goes;" "Worn on the side, will be a rich
man's bride;" all of which may be taken for
just what they are worth.
When yon bnya pair of new shoes, never
put them on a shelf higher than your head,
unless yon want to bring bad luck, and if
you blacken them before yon have had both
. shoes on, yon may meet with an accident or
even have a sudden death. This is an old
Irish snperstition. The Scottish girls be
lieve that if they drop their shoes before
they are worn trouble will ensne, while a
Frenoh lady losiug her heel is sure of some
disappointment in love, and a German moth
er in the same predicament feels that she
will soon lose one of her children,
' An old sign says that, if a young man is
careless of hh) Bhoe lacing, he will neglect
his wife; but on the contrary, if he laces
them tight ho will be very stingy in his deal
ings with her. By the way, if a young man
is going tires his sweetheart and stubs his
right toe, he may know that he is to be wel
come; but if he' stubs hit left one he may as
well turn around and ge home, because she
does not want to s e him. Again, if his
laoiugj keep coming untied, his lady love is
ttnlklng or thinking abont him.
Au Instance Where a Part y of
That Number Meet With
The following contained in a speoial from
Wellston to a Cincinnati daily will be a grain
of comfort to the superstitious:
"Two years ago, shortly after his reelec
tion to the office of oity marshal, the friends
of Stephen B. Edwards tendered him a ban-
' quest and mada the night memorable by
merriment, mnsio and feasting. Just as the
party was breaking np at daybreak some
one superstitionsly disposed remarked:
' "There are exactly thirtesn guests, and that
is an unlucky number. I hope that no evil
will result from our me etiug tonight."
'There are now only four persons living
out of that party who have not met with some
"Mr. Edwards himself, while performing
his duties, shot and killed a man soon after
his election. A few months later he died of
consumption. Next Emil Krahmer, who
president at the banqnest, was killed by the
cars in Indiana,
"Other deaths followed with astonishing
rapidily. Peter Billingsley, freight oonduot
or, and one of the merriest of the fatal party
was ground to death benea'h the cars. Ome
EesBenger was shot through the heart and
instantly killed by Phillip Sohnff, whose
trial for murder is now in progress before
the Oommon Pleas court. Cans. Morgan,
the genial bartender, and ouoe a business
partner of E. L. Harper, of Fidelity bank
fame, fell from the window of the room in
whioh the banquet was held and received
injuries whioh afterward proved fatal. An
. other, a piano agent, was arrested for em
a7ement and sent to the penitentiary by
, H, Balpwin & Co., of Cincinnati. George
D, Eiawiey, civil engineer, met a like fate,
ksxi ig been convict. d for forgery and given
tea years' sentet.oe. Two other of the
ifuents have since been injured in the mines
and have little hope of recovery.
"It would now be difficult to persuade the
survivors that 13 is not an nnluoky number.

In tho year 1770 a small palisade fort'
was erected upon the site now occupied
by the city of Wheeling. The fort was
surrouuded by tho cabins of tho settlors
and w3 named in honor of the great
Virgiuia orator aud patriot, Patrick
On the morning of tho 1st of Sep
tember, 1777, a scout appeared at tho
fort, announcing the near approach of
tho dreaded Simon Girty with a largo
baud of savages. Having the night be
fore received an intimation of danger
from an Luti.m raid, the families of
tho settlers had removed to tho fort
Tho fort at this time was but lightly
garrisoned, a portion of its forces hav
ing btit-u sent to re-enfotco posts that
were moro exposed, they being in no
apprehension of dnnper from British or
Indian foes. It was" in charge of Colo
The dwelling of Colonel Ebenezer
Znue stood about BO yards distant from
the palisade. In this building wcro stor
ed supplies of various kinds, which it
was very desirable to preserve, and, the
house occupying a favorable position to
aid in resisting the attack, it was decid
ed to niako tho defense from both points.
In the dwelling, when the attack was
made, there were but eight persons,
four men and four women, including
the negro cook and his wife.
The first attack was made span rec-
onuoitering party under the command
of Captain Mason. Tho Indians were
ambushed a short dietaiicwtroia. the fart
and fell upon the little baud without a
moment's warning.. More than: one-half
of thorn perished. Captain Ogle, with
13 men, hurried out to the assistance f
Mason,, and only feus- of has men ever
returned. The others werw ruthlessly
butchered by bullet aud tomahawk. The
garrison was now reduced to. a mere
handful of determined defenders, most
ly young men. They numbered rvboot
12, with the bravo- Colonel Sheppisrit
and Ebenezer and Silas Zane-at (heir
The womea and1 children, were ferrrl-
dled togother iusichv the pickets, over
whelmed with grief and faar,, fnr nil
hope for the safety of tho fort now seem
ed lost. At thia-critical mnmend Simon
Girty appeared' witn a white flag and
demanded: the unconditional snxrendei
of the fort, Although the besiegers out
numbered tho besieged thirtyfold; the
Indians numbering over oTJO, thw belea
guered) garrison uesolved to resist, far
they well, knew what their fate wowM
be' if they fell into the hand of the;
treacherous fiend,. Girty. Colonel' Shep-
pard promptly told the scoundrel that
tho fort would never- be surrendered to
him nor to ' any other man white' tltee
was a person left to defend' it.
Girty became enraged and ordered an
attack. ''Girty,,'said thifitoriatr Leas
ing, "was the offspring of crime. His
father was a 3ettler in. Pennsylvania,
an outlaw aud a sot,, and his-nwrther
was a disgrace to. her sex. " Simon,
with- his two brothers, when yexxths,
were copturod by the Indians. His
brother James was adopted by tbDel
awares and becamo the fiemsest savage
of tho tribe. Simon, was. adapted ly tho
Sonecas, became a great hunter and
finally a powerful leader among the In
dians, exercising his innate wickednss
to the fullest extent and declaring eter
nal enmity toward- his own race. For
many years the name of Simon Girty
was a terror to the-settlers, of tke north
west. He was as bloodthirsty and! unre
lenting as a tiger, excelling the- savages
in the cruelty ha- inflicted npon those
who foil into his clutches. Male and
female old age- audi hulpleas infancy,
The besiegers for several tromrs kept
up an. ineffectual fire against the fort
and dwelling from the cabins in which
they were sheltered. Whenever a red
skin Bhowed himself, the aeveT failing
rift of the- sharpshooter was sure to
brinx him ton. Several times, the In
dians advanced upon th gate of the
palisade, huping to be able to force it,
hot each, time were-compelled to retreat
under a galling fire. The few men in
the fort were enabled to kaep up a con
stant firing, for the women molded thr
bullets aud loaded the guns as fast as;
they conld bo used. Night coming ou,.
the firing ceased. Quiotness now reign
ed, and the darkness became intense
About midnight the attention ot 6n
negro cook, Sam, was attracted by!- a
small stream of light that found! its
way through a crevice in the kitwhen
wall from theoutsida An investigation
revoalod an Indian with a lighted! brand
endeavoring to sot fire to tho kitchen.
Sam, watching his ohance, sent a bullet
through his red hide.
Early tho following moratng the In
dians 'renowed the attack with much
vigor. Having procured a hollow maple
log, thty converted it into .&. cannon,,
binding it around solidjy With ohaW
obtained from tho houses of the set
tlers. -After plaoiu'g a heavy charge of
powder in it and filling it to tho mug
zle with cannon balls, oaptured tho day
before from a flatboat that was passing
down the river from Pittsburg, in great
triumph they conveyed it to within 00
or 70 yards of tho fort and pointed it at
the gate. Jheu.. with shoujis, of, ex.ulta
tion, wnien meant, vre t got yofl
DOW," they touched it off. To thHr nt-tt-r
amazement and coutei nation, tiie
log burst into a thousand fragments,
flying in every direction, killing and
.wounding several of their own number.
During all this time the riflemen in
the tli'i auif dwelling were picking them
off at a rapid rate, and when the smoke
from the explosiou had cleared away
tho ground was fonnd strewn with dead
The disaster and the disappointment
arising from it so exasperated the Indi
ans that they madly threw themselves
against tho gate with heavy battering
rams made of logs, determined to force
an entrance. Above the din and confu
sion tho voice of Girty was heard urging
the savages on, but ho was nowhere to
be soon, being shielded from tho deadly
rifles of the patriots in the fort, who,
he well knew, would rejoice to get a
shot at him. The constant fire ponred
upon tho savages from the fort and'
dwelling forced them to again retire.
At this juncture) it was discovered
that the supply of powder in the fort
was about exhausted. Ebenezer Zane
remembered that he had a keg stowed
away in his house, but how was it to
be obtained? Whoever ventured to pro
euro it was almost certain to be cut
down by the bnllets Of the Indians,
who were so near and always on the
alert. Only ono man coo Id be spared
for tho service from the defense of the
fort Colonel Eheppard, not being will
ing to order aay one to the dtrty, asked
for a volunteer. Every man: present ea
gerly offered to undertake Dhe hazard

A young man -trodo into the Astor
library yesterday afternoon, a rood sized
book under his ' arm, aud was making
straignt lor the staircase to tho reading
room when the old m.-.n who- serves as
hall porter waved him ba,:k by a ges
ture. "Well, what's np with tiie oldl ehap-
anyway; ne remarked to his friend,
"Come back here, " said the porter,
simultaneously pointing a !:::gcr at souls'
"Well. I like that." answered: the
youth, not following the " direction- of
the finger. "I like you' for "ahiee, polite
sort of guide in this building.- Guess
I'll go where I want withonff your as
sistance, my good man. "
"You've got a b6ok,"'sald tho pos
"Yes," replied the young-man, "I
have, and if it hadn't such a respectable
binding on it I'd like to fife it at your
head. There, "and he made a spring
upward, three steps at a time, followed
by the gasping porter, who finally lay
prone on the stone staircase frantically
holding on to the vanishing coattails.
"Come hack," he pleaded, now in
plaintive tones, "come back and read
the notice. You'll see I daren't let you
pass with that book. I'll lose my place
if you're seen with it. Do, sir, please
ccme back. "
The notice is to the effect that all
books carried into the library are to b
left in the porter's charge and called for
on coming out. The idea is to prevent
readers walking off with books of the
library. If without one coining in and
