Ue was n. I'rcmt Operator fur a Vory Tatf
This recalls to our mind, says the
Washington Post, an experience of a
young Iriend whom we will call Snipkins.
He was about VJ years old, and undertook
to learn telegraphy because he was fasci
nated by it. He thought that to be a tel
cjrraph operator va- to lo the mo?t en
viable creature on earth. So he obtained
pemiiSMon to practice in a little way
oflice where not more than one or two
message were ueeiced in a day. Thomas
Cle-.eland, who was the station agent, the
cxpres agent, the operator, and every
thing c1h showed the young man how tc
make Ihe alphabet, and Snipkins s-ct about
the tak of learning with a proud heart.
For an hour or more huprckc.il away at
the key, mastering one letter after an
other. "Von are iiiakin;; line progress," said
Mr. Cleveland, encouragingly: "and say,
Snipkins, whcnc-era.i body "conies in to
scud a message you just pretend that you
are the operator, tai.e the message aud
the pay for it. j-a.tle the key so as to
make believe you are ending it, and then
hang the message, on the hook. When I
get around to it, I will send it.''
This pleaded the young man vary
ninth. It was tin; height of his ambi
tion to be deemed an operator, and he
rattled the key very el. i-uciitly wheiieer
any white-cye.l villager hap'ieiieJ to be
looking. Pretty soon a gentleman came
in with a message u Iiicii he said must bo
sent right away.
'I will send it at once," said Snipkins,
and with a glad heart he sat down aud rat
tled away for iierhaps two seconds. Then
lie hung the menage on the hook and
leaned back with an air that said: "What
do you think of me V"
"Why don't you send my message?"
asked the man.
"I have; it is gone," said Snipkins,
sorry for the poor, ignorant layman.
'Gone I What do you mean? There
it is on that hook.'
"You don't suppose we send the paper
that the messa-rcjis written on, do your"
said Snipkins lot lily.
"Don't you V" asked the customer.
-.'Certainly not,"' aud Snipkins laughed
a little at the poor fellow's ignorance.
'Well,'' said the man, "that's news to
me. How on earth do you send it, then r"
"You saw me send it. That's all there
is to it."
"Well, well," said the astonished cus
tomer. "And how long before it will be
"It's there now."
"Isniim, is that so? Well, well, tele
graphing is pretty quick business, isn't
"Yes sir;" s-tid Snipkins, condescend
ing to be jocular for the moment; "it's as
quick as lightning."
The man came around ins-da the railing
and llattercd Snipkins by a-king him
please to explain how the tiling worked
a hat made the message go aud how it
eame to get tlicie so quickly.
What Snipkins didn't know about this
part or it w ould have made a coverlet for
all time with some few square miles
left to to lap over into eternity. He had
no sort of an idea how the 'electric cur
rent was created. He had never been in
troduced to a batten and was not on
speaking terms with even a ground wire,
ltut lie had a splendid imagination and
with it he created a scheme of telegraphy
quite as wonderful as anything Prof.
Morse had ever dicamed of." He laid the
v.iivle thing open to the be wildcrcd listen
er and made au explanation as clear as
' Well, sir." said tire easterner when
everything had 'been explained at great
length and with lofty condescension,
"that N the most wonderful thing I ever
heard of. My shirs, what a revolution
has been made in telegraphy in the last
s.x months! Xmr, when I quit opera
ting. l.vstXovember. it was all done in
quite another way. When we wanted to
send a message we opened the key this
way, called up the other oflice this' way,
and (after all the other cilices had an
swered) sent the massage this way."
The customer was It. X. Woleott, otn
of the oldest telegraph operators in II.
When young Snipkins returned to cok
3ciouuess he saw Tom Cleveland stand,
ing behind the freight desk laughing
himself blue in the face. That is the way
old telegraphers sometimes treat the cubs
in their oiliecs. Clevelaud had arranged
the whole thing with his friend Woleott.

THE DRUMMER'S LATEST.
Da Catcft-1 now Ton rick a Thread rrom
The drummer always brings the latest
trick. Here it is :
Take a spool of white basting cotton.
Drop it into your inside coat pocket and,
threading a "needle with it, pass it up
through the shoulder of your coat. Leave
the cud an inch or so long on the outside
of your coat and take off the needle.
Four men out of five will try to pick Ui.it
white thread off your shoulder, aud will
pull on the spool until it actually does
teem as though your clothes arc all bast
ings, and that they were uiinn cling not
only your clothes, but yourself.
'I was in to sec Wilson Barrett in
Claudiau in Boston last week," said Hie
trai cling man. "It wasintliemostiiitcr
ing and pathetic portion of the play.
Ei cry body was rapt. 1 was sitting bolt
upright, and didn't know or care to know
a soul around me, when suddenly I felt
some one tugging at that basting cotton
that I myselt liad clean forgotten. I
did r.t say a word and did not inoie. Foot
by foot it unrolled. Half glancing around
I saw a man a total stranger yanking
at that thread. His face was scarlet. He
had pulled out about 10 yards and was
now hauling in hand oicr hand. He
didn't dare to stop because ho had deco
rated my back and the whole aisle with
basting cotton. He hardly dared to go
ahead," for he didn't know w hat porUon of
my domestic interior economy he was
trilling with. Itip! ltip! went the
thread. Hand oier hand he yanked it in.
Thca'sle ias full of it. 'For heaven's
sake! will it never end V said he aboie
hi3 breath. I sat perfectly still and ran
the spool while he pulled. How I wanted
to i ell. I ncier saw anything in my life
half so funny. The whole section of the
hoiiKj got on to it. They didn't know
whether to laugh at me or hlin, ami some
looked on amazed at the spectacle. At
last the stranger behind me gaie one
frantx rip and yanked out about 11 yards
in one bunch", and as the cotton got
twisted around his watch cliain, over his
eye-glas5cs, in his very hair, and lilled his
lap, I turned around and. producing the
spool from my pocket, said: 'lam icry
much obliged for your interest and wry
sorry that I misled you. You see that I
have about 124 yards left, but 1 presume
that vou don't care for any more to-night.
I ani hone-try sorry, but I can't help
"The man was a modest sort of a gen
tleman in appearance. His face was red
as tire even to his cars. He looked at me
and then at the spool. He changed color
once or twice, and then as the crowd
caught on a big laugh went up right in
one of the painful pa-sages in Claudian,
and the gentleman who had intended to
pull that thread off, joined in the laugh
and said, ! will square that up on my
wife when I get home; but, my menu, i
swear to heaieii that 1 did think at one
time that I was going to undress you
where vou sat.
"It catches every time, and my own
wife has been fooled twice on it."
PROGRESS IN SURGERY.
Wonderful IuiproipuiBiits Withiu the Lull
Formerly one of the most dangerous
operations known was the removal ol
goitres, writes a distinguished surgeon in
HarpciS Magazine. Hemorrhage, in
flammation and blood-poisoningdeslroj ed
a erv large number of such cases, and
when ICocher of Berns, in 1SS2, reported
fitty-cight oiierations with a mortality of
1 1.:; jx-r cent, it was deemed a triumph.
But improved methods of operation re
duced the mortality until, in 1SSI. here
ported fortv-three more operations, with
only a mortality of li.O per cent, and in
1SW) he has just reported 250 additional
oiierations and all but six patients recov
ered a mortality of but 2. J percent, or,
if we exclude the twenty-live cases of
cancer, which gave four of the deaths
we have i.'." caes and only two deaths, a
mortality of but 0.S per cent.
We see few casps of seieie knock-knee
and bow-legs in this country, but among
the lower eias-cs of Europe they are com
mon. Formerly almo-t nothing could be
done; but a few years ago surgeons be
gan to operate upon tlit.ni in this way:
a Miu'll cut is made through the s-kin and
muscle? down to the bone, and by a saw
or a chisel the bone is divided. The limb
is straightened and the cac Heated ex
actly as if it were an oi dinar fracture.
It heals without fever or sciious pain,
and the patient is v. ell. With modern
methods this is not a dangerous operation,
as will be .-ten by the remarkable paper
read by Macewcn, of Glasgow, at the
International Medical Congre-s of 1SSI in
Copenhagen, when he repot tc-d lSOOope
rationsou 1207 limbs in 701 patents, and
only live died, in spite of the fact, too,
that most of them, from deformity in
several limbs, luid to have multiple oiie
rations. Even these deaths were not due
to the operation, but followed from pneu
monia, typhoid fever, consumption and
Wc; have learned, too, that a portion of
the body can be entirely severed, and if
suitably preserved, can be icplaccd, and
tiicv will adhere and grow as it nothing
had happened- When a wound is slow in
healing we now take bits of skin, cither
from the patient'1" own body or prov ided
by generous friends, or even from dogs,
and "graft" them on the surface of the
wound. They usually adhere, and
as they enlarge at their margins
they abridge by one-half the
time required for healing. Even a
large disk of bone, one or two inches in
diameter, when removed from the skull,
can be so treated. It is placed in a cup
tilled with with a warm anti-septic solu
tion. This cup is placed in a ha-in of
warm water, and it is the duty of one
assistant to see that the thermometer in
thi ua-in shall always mark 100 degrees
to 103 degrees Fahrenheit. The bone
may be -eparatcd from the skull so long
as cine or two hours, but if properly eared
for can be replaced, and will grow fat
and fulfill its accustomed but Interrupted
duty of protecting the brain.
l'ooil Needed to Sastain Life.
It is a curious fact, brought out by the
New York commissioners of labor sta
tistics, that prison estimates of the
amount of food needed to sustain life arc
more liberal than estimates for persons
dependent on public charities.
Tiie r.ilftnnous Cigarette.
A Selina (Cal.) man went into a store
last week and put a lighted cigarette on
the edge of an aquarium. A gold fish
seized it and took a puff. For several
days the ioor thing lay at the bottom of
the tank and pauttd like a tired dog. Its
color cliangcd to jet black, and the owner
of that cigarette lias sworn off for '..caps.
A Great power. More than thirty
two thousand public schools of the Uni
ted States have each been supplied with
a copy of Webstcrs Unabridged Diction
ary. Think what that means. If there
is an average of 30 scholars to each
school, il means that a million and a hslf
of the American youth have the pnvi
lege of consulting and studying this
great work in the course fcf their educa
tion. Who can guess the power for in
tellectual stimulation and development
which is actively at work all the time?

How Farmers Are Taxed.
It is not uncommon to hear our farmers
complain of the taxes they have to pay.
Sometimes they are too high and the pay
ment of them could be largely lessened by
increasing the productive power of an
acre of ground. For instance: A farmer
who sows poor seed, raises scrub stock,
or buys antiquated or imperfect imple
ments, must certainly pay proportionate
ly high taxes. Not to mcnUon the im
provement be might make by getting the
best seed and life stock, be could by a
Dccring binder or Mower, and save
money in the harvesting of his grain and
grass crops. 2

The Shade of Columbus.
Rebuffed by every potentate beforc
whom he laid bis plains, and jeered at by
the populance before setting sail for the
new world, Columbus upon bis return
was listened to with open mouthed as
tonishment by the king, queen and peo
ple. Think of the utter unbelief with which
even Columbus would have listened to
