A Joke on Future Scientists.
[From the New York Times.]
There is a town iv Ireland which af
fronts common sense and the language
ofthe tyrannical Saxon by calling It
self "Haulbowline." Recently it has
added to its original offense by perpe
trating a gross and malignant attack
upon the Mosaic cosmogony. Toe
Haulbowline authorities have for a
long period been engaged in the con
struction of a dock of such magnif
icent proportions that were Ireland a
free and happy Republic, any Haul
bowline statesman would, by this
time, have saved at least a million
dollars out of the annual dock appro
priation. A week or two ago the
workmen were lowing a heavy gran
ite block upon the bed of concrete
which forms the foundation of the
dock, when a reckless Haulbowliner
deliberately threw himself in its way.
The block descended, and the man was
slowly but thoroughly flattened out.
The concrete yielded to receive him,
and by the time that it occurred to a
bystander to mention to the workmen
that they had deposited their block on
a layer of flattened Irishman, the lat
ter had accomplished his suicidal pur
pose. As there was no active demaud
for his remains, no attempt was made
to exhume them,and accordingly they
will remain imbedded ln the rock un
til, at some future day, the dock crum
bles into pieces and the flattened skel
eton is brought and exhibited by emi
nent scientific men as a conclusive
proof of the vast antiquity of man.
The Nevada Transcript truthfully
says: It has always been claimed by
those who oppose Chinese labor, that
it does not pay. They claim that the
same money paid for two Chinamen,
will more than pay one white man,
aud that the average white man will
do more work than two Chinamen.
The Superintendentof the Bald Moun
tain Gravel Mine, which is located at
Forest city, Sierra county, has always
been one of those who think China
men a nuisance. In this mine there
are 160 meu employed. About a year
ago the San Francisco owners sent up
word to have Chinamen worked as an
experiment. The Superintendent se
lected 60 out of a band of 300 laborers,
and started them in. He tried tbe
whole band, one after the other, to
get one that could run the cur into the
tunnel, which is 4000 feet in length,
and found only one who cm Id do it,
• and it would take him twice as long
as it did a white man. 'I'm \ all want

man easily performed. It was the
same way with the other workmen,
and after two months trial, the Mon
golians were discharged, and white
men put back in their places. There
are no Chinese employed there any
longer, and Forest city is one of the
most flourishing camps in the State
to-day. If other employers will ex
amine the matter, they will find that
they make nothing by hiring Mongo
lians instead of their own country
Another Shower of Flesh Reported.
The Columbus, Georgia, Enquirer
recently had the following statement:
A few days ago Messrs. Dick and Ad.
Kervin were standing in the hack
yard or the latter when quite a show
er of flesh fell upon aud around them.
It *t first seemed as a miracle to them
as they had often heard of flesh 'rain
ing' from above. They cast up their
eyes and discovered several buzzards
about 100 feet above theni,flyingabout
and this explained to them the mys
tery, and one, too, which has so often
occurred but yet unexplained. As a
Louisyille Professor has suggested,
this may account for the famous
shower in Kentucky. The particles
of the Columbus shower were not
gathered or analysed as were those ot

A MUCH-MARRIED MAN.
Hurry D. Wakefield aad Hie Kit.hi
[From the 8. F. Chronicle.]
It is probably true that Harry D.
Wakefield believed that the institu
tion of marriage was founded on the
requirements of man's uature, and
that he al-o possibly considered his
nature of such peculiar texture as to
frequently require an actual partici
pation in, the solemnity of taking up
on himself tbe marriage vows. Harry
Morse, the ever alert Sheriff of Ala
meda county, also has views on this
marriage question which do not tally
in every particular with Wakefield's;
but all this cuts no figure iv the whys
and wherefores that caused Harry
Morse to pounce upon aud cast into
jail Harry Wakefield yesterday after
noon. Tiie doughty Sheriff has want
ed to perform that same proceeding
for more than a year, but the wily
Wakefield remained absent on the
eighth wedding tour accredited to bis
experience within the last two years.
Harry D. Wakefield first appeared in
Oakland about two years ago. and,
from information at hand, has always
had a mania for getting married, thus
giving his love advances an honorable
intention. So far as known be was
always a plausible
AND SUCCESSFUL. HOMES,
But be waa inconstant and Aw In ev
ery fair new face bis Juliet, and want
ed to be tbe glove upon ber hand.
About eighteen months since be
wooed and wedded in this city Miss
Emma Grabe, a young, pretty and
lusty dressmaker, whose parents re
side iv Ban Jose, Ktnina thought she
had won the first love of a paragon of
a husband, and for a few months this
world to Emma was as lovely as a big
sunflower. The tables soon turned,
however. Harry began to neglect his
Emma, and finally deserted her. She
applied to Harry's mother, Mrs. Mary
E. Beman, a clairvoyant on East Fif
teenth street, East Oakland, but Mrs.
Beman would not be a mother to her;
so, after a few more weeks of hopeless
waiting for a reconciliation, Emma
applied to H. A. Leake, an Oakland
attorney*,to procure for her a divorce.
In tbe mean time, the polygamist
Harry had found his Mary Jane and
wedded her in this city. She was
comely to look upon, and ber busi
ness was also that of dressmaker. Her
name was Mary Jane Hall, and for a
time she thought her Harry was all
MRS. WHITING PAINTED JONES.
Harry had been partially truthful
in his dealings with Mary Jane, for he
told her before their marriage that he
had bean twice married before in the
East, she thinks at Chicago, but that
his first wife had died and from his
second he had procured a divorce. But
Mary Jane soon learned of Emma
Grabe, when a rupture occurred and
Harry was dischargeC. Attorney
Leake was also consulted by dress
maker No. 2, and retained to make
void her marriage with Harry Wake
man. This was about a year ago, and
the two dressmakers appeared before
tbe Alameda county grand jurors,who
heard their story and indicted the fes
tive Harry. Search was made for the
much-married man, but he could not
be found. About three months after
his departure his mother went East,
and it has since been learned that
mother and son traveled throughout
the East giving seanceß at Cincinnati,
Indianapolis, Louisville, Chicago,
Philadelphia, New York and other
cities. That Sneriff Morse kept track
of them and knew their intentions of
returning is not to be questioned.
About one month since the mother
returned, aud within the last week
Harry also, with a little fresh-looklug
fifteen-year-old wife. Of course there
was a scene at Mrs. Beman's house
yesterday afternoon when Harry
Morse put in an appearance and found
Mrs. 8., her adorable son Harry and
his new baby-wife seated around the
two o'clock dining table. As above
stated, Harry Wakefield, who is forty
eight years of age, though in appear
ance twelve years younger, and who
is reputed to be the husband of eight
living wives, was incarcerated yes
terday afternoon in the Alameda
Fatal Duel in Brussels.
[From the London Dally News, May SOtb.]
Tbe more unsatisfactory side of the
custom of duelling has been displayed
iv the result of a recent combat at
Brussels. The oppoueuts were Cap
tain Van Heeck and M. Marchal, and
the "donna" in the case was not far to
seek. She was the wife of the Cap
tain, a very young lady of great beau
ty, and it was bis opinion of her con
duct which drove the martial and un
fortunate officer to demand and re
ceive satisfaction. The Captains
Ceusvort and Boxo on the part of M.
Van Heeck, consulted Lieutenants
Zerezo de la Tejada and De Wetter,
the friends of M. Marchal, and decld
e I that their principals "must see
each other." The riding school of the
Ecole de Guerre was fixed on as a nice
solitary place, as no doubt it is at half
past four on a May morning, and
there the duellists appeared, and, by
the choice of Mr. Van Heeck, fought
with pistols. They were put up at
thirty-five paces and the first fire pro
duced no results. M. Marchal sol
emnly declared his innocence, took
Van Heeck's shot, and discharged bis
pistol in the air. Both meu missed
at the second and third fires, and then
the five o'clock bell rang to awaken
the boys in the school. There was no
more time to waste and the distance
was shortened by ten yards. On the
first fire at twenty-five yards M. Van
Heeck was mortally wouuded in the
Yesterday about half past one
o'clock John Lathrop, a well known
hack driver, was cowhided by an ac
tress of Wood's Opera House. The
cowhide was laid on with brawn y
muscle and John took it like a man.
The actress' husband was at hand and
when Lathrop attempted to strike his
assailant the husband gave him sev
eral blows with a cane which assisted
in hisdemoralization. The cause of
the assault was an alleged insult at
the Opera House last night.
