A SPLENDID JOKE.
Though It Did Not "Wind Up Ac
cording' to Programme.
Ij- George! it'll bo capital fun!"
"But won't they 'smoke' it?"
Osot they; the train's too well laid,
and only needs touching off."
The speakers were Guy Riggs and
Seth Norton, two of a knot of hilarious
students, so-called a non sliideiulo
that is, by the rule of contraries.
George Wells and Hiram "West, a couple
of their chums, were the theme of
George and Hiram wero both "atten
tive" to the same young lady, and wero
thought, in consequence, to bo as jeal
ous as "the Moor," ii not moro so, and
nearly as b'oody-minded.
Tho first of April as at hand; and
it would bo a rich joke, Guy and Seth
and the rest of them thought, if the
rival lovers could be hoaxed into call
ing ono another out that day, and mak
ing themselves ridiculous by firing
blank cartridges at each other, all the
ivhilo believing they were exchanging
To work the thing up no end of tale
bearing was resorted to. Georgo was
told that Hiram had cast reflections on
his character what they were could
not be divulged without a breach of
confidence entirely beyond tho palo of
Christian forgiveness, while Hiram was
given to understand that George had
said things of him, which the informer
forbore to repeat, lest- bloody conse
quences should follow.
And so back and forth reports were
carried, each moro atrocious than its
predecessor, and still more darkly
vague and indefinite.
It was in tho days when people
thought there was a logical connection
between wounded honor and wounds of
tho flesh, and that however grossly a
gentleman insulted you to-day, he made
.you amplo reparation if ho shot you
through the thorax for it to-morrow.
On tho morning of the first, George
received a note, purporting to be from
Hiram West, inviting him to a hostile
meeting at two o'clock that afternoon,
naming a place likely to afford security
"It -will be unnecessary to reply to this," the
note concluded, "as no other satisfaction will
"be accepted for the injury you have done me
than that usually recognized among gentlemen.
ir you are as ready to back your scandalous
"words as you have been to utter them, be pres
ent at the time appointed, with a friend, and
-armed. Yours, etc.,
About the same timo Hiram received
xl similar missive, signed "George
Wells." Both notes, wo may add,
lad been written by Guy Riggs. who
possessed a precocious aptitudo for
jfergery, which, unless speedily cor
rected, bade fair to land .him in State
prison one day.
"They'll be sure to chose some of us
-as seconds," said Guy; "and we'll keep
1em popping away till the powdergires
out, shortening the dislanco every other
fire, and in tho end. call them a brace
of April-fools, and laugh them off the
"But suppose they chooso other sec
onds. not in the secret" suggested one
more timid than the rest, "harm may
-some of it."
"Pshaw! you croaker," retorted Guy;
"whom can they get? There's nobody
out of the secret but Tom Strait and
Stephe Blithers, and they're both Sunday-school
teachers. Besides, some of
us will be near enough to prevent mis
chief." Sure enough, Guy Riggs received an
early call from George Wells, who very
privately and with many injunctions of
secrecy, confided to Guy his engage
ment for two o'clock, requesting him to
be present as his friend on the occa
sion. "We had better go separately." said
George; "it will be less likely to at
"Quite right," answered Guy, grave
ly; and the two parted.
A like interview, with the like result,
took place between Hiram West and
The two seconds then returned to their
companions and reported progress; and
the fun they were all going to have was
"discounted" by laughing over it in ad
vance. It was settled that the whole
crowd should be on hand all but Guy
and Seth keeping out of sight, but near
enough to hear and see every thing.
"What's this?" exclaimed Guy, his
eye glancing over a note placed in his
hand. He read:
"Having an intimation that suspicions are
afloat, and not being able to And you at the mo
ment, I have taken in your place Stephe Blith
ers through whom I have arranged to have the
affair to come off an hour sooner. I shall be off,
and probably all will be over before this reaches
you. If we never meet again, farewelL"
"Confound tho fool!'' broko out Guy,
snatching up his hat.
"Confound the pair of them!" joined
in Seth, when he had torn open and
read another note, of which he was the
recipient "Here's that donkey Hiram
gone off with that j)ke of a Tom
Strait, who has no more idea of a joke
than tho late Euclid had."
"Thero'll bo murder done that's
all," lugubriously whined tho timid
With one accord, in tho faint hope
that they might yet bo in timo to pre
vent the diro consequences of their
folly, they sallied forth like a flock of
frightened sheep, Guy Riggs taking tho
lead as bell-wether.
Puffing and panting, they came
in sight of the place. Thank Heaven,
they wero not too late! " Tho combat
ants stood in their places, pistols in
"Hold! hold! for Heaven's sake!"
"Hold on, I say!" bellowed Seth Nor
ton; "it's all a blamed hoa "
But before the word was uttered, Blith
ers waved his handkerchief, and both
pistols went off together.
Hiram remained standing, but poor
George fell heavily to the ground.
The two seconds wore stooping over
him whon Guy and his companions
reached the spot
"Poor fellow! It's all over with
him," said Blithers, in the solemn tone
he was accustomed to use in addressing
his class "shot through the lungs, and
"He must bo got to his room without
delay, and a doctor summoned," said
Tho wounded man, who seemed in
sensible to what was passing, was gently
raised up and placed in a carriage in
waiting, which was driven off. Blithers
accompanying his unfortunate friend,
whom ho tenderly supported in his
"And now, gentlemen." said Tom
Strait, "it's my opinion the sooner we
get away from here the better. The
authorities will be hera in a trice, and
every man on tho ground will bo ar
rested; and," shaking his head, "I need
hardly say it's a bad piece of bus
iness." "For a Sunday-school teacher to be
engaged in," was tho retort on tho top
of moro than one tongue; but Guy and
his companions felt that they wero most
of all guilty; and were silent
"Of course, my friend and myself
must leave the country at once," Tom
proceeded; "but some of you must
break the news to poor Katie King
without delay. It would quite kill her
if she heard it without preparation."
Hiram West stood like one horrified
at a deed tho enormity of which ho had
boon unable to realize till after he had
committed it When his friends took
him by tho arm, he suffered himself to
be led away, whither ho seemed neither
to know nor care.
The others had lost no time in quit
ting the fatal spot A batch of young
Cains they felt themselves, whose
brother's blood, while they remained
thore, kept crying against them from
Tho task of breaking the news to
Katie was voted to Guy Riggs. He
would gladly have shirked it; but he
was most to blame, tho others said, and
it was his duty, and couldn't deny it
Though Katie was somewhat of a
coquette, and, from time to time, had
encouraged, more or less, the advances
of both George and Hiram, it was com
monly understood that the former was
her favorite, and Guy's heart sank as
he came into her cheerful presence, the
conscious bearer of so fearful tidings.
"Why. what's the matter, Mr.
Riggs?"said Kate, after a glance at his
face. "You look as doleful as a paid
mourner at a funeral."
The word made him start
"I I " he stammered.
"You you what?" asked Kate.
"I I hare sad news to telL"
"Tell it then; it'll not improve by

Well, what of him?"
"He has met with a serious acci

hands, and seemed convulsed with emo
tion. "He'a mortally wounded!" Guy blurt
Kate became still more convulsed,
but it was with laughter, which she
rang out silvery peal after peal,
whereat Guy stood amazed, till anoth
er laugh, louder and less silvery, re
called him. It came from the throat
of George Wells, who suddenly ap
peared on the scene in remarkably
good case for a man with a. bullet in his
"You see," said George, slapping
Guy on tho shoulder, "we -smoked'
your little plot Hiram and I. and with
the assistance of Kate here, and our two
serious friends, Strait and Blithers, did
a little counterplotting."
The most April-foolish looking man
to be seen that day was Guy Riggs.

GENIUS AND CRIME.
A Mental Dlieaie Characterized by a Total
Absence of Delations.
While it is fully recognized by med
ical men that genius and insanity are
sometimes curiously intertwined in the
same person, or are displayed in close
ly connected members of the same fam
ily, it is not so easy to trace the connec
tion between these mental conditions and
thoso sinful or criminal acts which are
apt to bo committed by persons so or
ganized. The medical profession rec
ognizes forms of affection or moral in
sanity in which the capacity to govern
the emotions is in abeyance. In this
phase of mental diseaso a marked fea
ture is the absence of delusions; hence
the conflict of opinion between the med
ical and legal aspects which often arises
whero the question of criminality has
to be taken into consideration.
A person is often tried and condemned
by the law, but is exonerated and pro
tected by medical judgment which is
permitted to supesedo legal judgment
Thus the condemned criminal escapes
tho gallows, becomes an object of pity
and commisoration, is protected by and
at the expense of tho State, and saved
henceforth from further harm to himself-
or others. Ho may havo been
nay, indeed often is a person of the
highest talent or genius.-
Rev. William Dodd, a canon of the
church, tho unfortunate English divine
who was executed on tho 27th of June,
1777, forforgery, after trial at the Old
Bailoy, is an instance of' the insuffi
ciency of the law acting .apart from
medical judgment, which unfortunately
in those days had not acquired the
authority it now possesses. In our
day. where doubt exists, tho law leans
to tho side of mercy, that quality which
is "twice blessed." .
Whero the acts of the subject of mor
al mania are criminal, the question of
his responsibility is settled with much
difficulty, even when, as in such cases,
every opportunity of investigation is af
forded. How much more difficult then,
must it be to arrive at a right judg
ment in thoso cases of moral mania
whero the acts aro sinful, but not crim
inal. The law does not come to his
rescue. Ho is not the subject of delu
sions, yet his acts are the acts of "mad
ness, not badness." He may inflict on
himself the punishment of degradation
and ruin, and life-long misery on those
previously near and dear to him. He
bears tho scorn ot former friends, and
in his lucid intervals feels it keenly.
But when the impulse is on him noth
ing but the absolute control of others
is sufficient to check his wayward ca
reer. The influence of religion may
have some weight on him, but unfor
tunately it is too frequently tho case
that the strongest faith is inadequate
to stay the downward course.
Men are apt to judge their fellow
men uncharitably, and to deal harshly
with them, believing them to be capa
ble of exercising restraint over them
selves, while all the timo nothing short
of enforced restraint and medical treat
ment can avail.
A PECULIAR INDUSTRY.
Raisins of Kids for Their Skins by French
Tho raising of kids for their skins is
a principal industry among the French
mountaineors, and it supplies no smali
part of their subsistence. Softness,
delicacy of texture and freedom from
blemish aro principal factors in the
value of kid skins, and to secure these
great pains are taken. Diet is the prin
cipal thing, and mother's milk is what
keeps the kid in perfect condition for
the uses of the glover. As soon as the
young animal begins to eat grass the
value of the skin declines, for with a
grass diet its skin immediately begins
to grow coarser and harder in texture,
and its chief merit vanishes. It is,
therefore, kept closely penned, not only
to prevent it from eating grass, but
also to secure its skin from accidental
injury from scratches, bruises, eta,
which are fatal to perfection. When
the kids have reached a certain age, at
which the skins are in the best condi
tion for the use of the glover, they are
killed, and the skins are sold to travel
ing hawkers, through whom they reach
the great centers of the tanning indus
try at Annonay, Milbau, '.'Paris and
The superior quality of these kid
skins, due to climatic causes, it is that
has given Franco the supremacy in the
manufacture of the finest grades of real
kid gloves a supremacy that will
doubtless be long maintained, inasmuch
as foreign manufacturers must in gen
eral rest content with second-rate skins,
unless they maintain agents on tho
ground, a policy that some English and
American houses have found neces

For a year or two past the collector
for a certain Detroit tailor has boon
trying all sorts of pacific ways to get
the sum of thirteen dollars out of a
young man who has been a debtor for
over two years. The collector had
been put off a hundred times by prom

worked every racket known to tho pro
fession without avail. The other
evening he happened down at the
Third street depot and saw his young
man buy a ticket for Chicago.

MEXICO'S WEST POINT.
How Cadets Are Trained la the Military
At present about thirty per cent of
the officers of the armv are wAiimtoa r
the national 3Iilitary College at Cha-
rmlfoYxAs. .i ....
f-ir, m;re aoout tnree hundred
cadets constantlv are in train" a
whence about sixty officers are graduated
annually. Tho course pursued here is
similar to that at West Point, and the
I gradual retirement of the older officers,
combined with this constant addition of
young olncers who have been thoroughly
trained in accordance with the best of
modern military theories, is having a
very marked effect in raising the moral
tone of the army and in increasing its
practical efficiency. The cadets, as a
rule, are drawn from tho upper classes
of Mexican society, but among them
and this is a very prominent element in
the new army are a number of young
fellows whose brown or brownishskins
show their nativo Indian blood. It is a
notable and hopeful fact that the
native Indians more and more are com
ing to the front in tho government of
their own country. Juarez, who, all
things considered, was the greatest
statesman that Mexico as yet has pro
duced, was an Indian of the pure blood,
and President Diaz owes in part to his
dash of this fino strain his patient reso
lution and his steady courage in con
tending with great difficulties. Tho
presence of these brown-faced lads
among tho cadets, and of brown-
faced men in the national Congress and
in the various departments of tho
government, is a sign of healthy
national growth, of which the
importance scarcely can bo over
estimated. As a wholo, the ca
det battalion presents a fine soldierly
appearance; and the individual cadet,
as seen on tho streets of tho City of
Mexico on Sundays and feast-days, when
off from Chapultepec on all day leave,
is as well set-up, soldierly a young fellow
as is to be found anywhere. And even
the "cockyness' of these spruco lads in
their handsome uniforms, while likely
to make an old soldier smile a little in
a"kindly way. is a sign of proper pride
in an honorable profession that an old
soldier best appreciates and is least dis
posed seriously to condemn. Prido in
the uniform means pride in the service,
and is a sign that when the time comes
for fighting neither the uniform nor the
service will be disgraced. The Chapul
tepec boys havo gallant traditions to
sustain them, for in tho time of tho
American invasion they bore a brave
part in defending tho hill on which
their college stands against tho assault
of Scott's army. At the base of the
hill a monument fittingly commemo
rates the heroism of these young sol
diers and eloquently exhibits how well
they fought by tho long list of names
graven upon it of those who that day
died. Altogether, the Military College
is an institution of which the Mexicans,
in tho army and out of it, aro justly
proud; for both in its processess and in
its results it is highly creditable to the
nation at large. An important adjunct
to tho collego, recently established, is
the artillery school, in which officers of
that arm take a post-graduate course,
and to which officers in the service aro
detailed for instruction. Thomas A.
Janvier, in Harper's Magazine.
