The other day I was reading a long
newspaper article about the moral im
provement of the heathen in Africa and
the pressing need of more money to carry
on the good work. Having half an hour
to spare I sat down on the postoilice
steps, put my foot on a bootblack's box,
and wliile he used his brush I asked:

into the blacking.

2 -And then I'll rot!"
My boy, did'nt any one ever tell you

He looked at the soles of his dilapidated

"Bully! Where is it?" he exclaimed,
dropping his his brush.
"Kight here here in your bosom."
He pulled open his old ragged vest

suspicious look, picked up his brushes,
and ".set to work on my other boot with

jjotc ITitliam Russell got his Prtf
ent. Everybody in Cincinnati knows Mr.
William Russell, the blacksmith, whose
shop is at the corner of Central avenue
and Oliver street. Mr. Russell probably
knows more about shoeing horses than
any man you can find in a lengthy search,
and lie Mas put that knowledge to such ex
cellent practical ellect during thirty odd
3ears he lias been working at the busi
ness m Cincinnati, that he has accumu
lated a handsome fortune. He has in
vented a horse shoe that he believes to be
superior to any in use, and last week he
went to ashmgton to endeavor to get
a patent on it. lie was accompanied by
Mr. Charles Ij. Ulds, ot bpringtield, who
is interested in getting up a companv to
manufacture the shoe in that city.
The morning they arrived they took a
stroll to the President's strbles to look
at his horses. As they reached vicinity
two horses were being brought in that
had been out for exercise, one the Presi
dent's favorite saddle horse, and the other
Col. Fred Grant's " Rowdy," his favorite
trotter. Mr. Russell observed that both
were lame, and he was satisfied the fault
was in the shoeing. Subsequently they
called to pay their respects to the Pres
ident in due form, like the healthy
American citzens they are, and instead
of boring him with interrogatories about
the third term, Mr. Russell struck upon
the horse queastion at once. He stated
his name and business, and said he knew
what was the matter with those horses
they weren't shod right. Grant was imme
diately interested, lie took Mr. Rnssell's
arm and askf d him to walk right down
to the stables with him, which he did, and
they talked horse and horse-shoeing so
fast that 3Ir. Olds, who was curious to
know whether Grant rcaly wanted a third
term or not, couldn't got a word in edge
ways. Sir Russell explained his method of
shoeing a horse, and it seemed to agree
with the President's idea exactly. He said
he wished heaven had sent him such a
blacksmith, or words of that effect. Then
Mr. Russell offered to shoe those horses
himself, and the President was delighted.
He issued an order permitting him to use
the Government blacksmith shop, and
thither Mr. R. repaired, pulled ptt his
coat fgot some iron, and proceeded to turn
out shoes lor the President s horses ac
cording his own plans. The horses were
shod, and when taken back to the stable
the lami ness was wholly gone, the next
day Mr. Russell made auothcr call on the
President, who shook him by both hands
and expressed his pleasure at having
made his acquaintance. He gave him an
order for shoes for all his horses, to be
sent to Long Branch, and asked how long
before he would go to Cincinnati, so that
he could send them on. He said he had
a little business in Washington that might
detain him for some time. He wanted to
obtain a patent on this very horseshoe,
the excellence of which had just been so
satisfactorily tested. The hint was enough.
The President wrote a line on a card ad
dressed to Mr Delano, Secretary of the
Interior, askinsr him to see that the pat-
cut be issued, if all right, without delay;
ana, to make a long story short, Mr. Rus
sell had his papers in twentj'-fourhours,
and was on his return to Cincinnati, very
happy over the result of shoeing the
Pictures as Story -Tellers,
In a village in India recently it became
necessary in the course of some engineer
ing opeiations to transport an enormous
mass of metal, weighing several hundred
tons, from one part of the town to another.
Ordinary means were out of the question;
and as the engineers found themselves un
able to devise any process, they did the
next best thing, and wrote to other engi
neers in England who were constantly su
pervising such work. The latter, instead
of writing out nice large pages of fools
cap, beautifully embellished with Greek
letter formulas and. red ink, quietly
waited until the next big piece of metal
which they had to transport offered a fa
vorable opportunity. Then they pre
pared a camera, and photographed every
step of the operation, together with all
tools and appurtenances, and forward
ed thejprints from the negatives to India.
These the engineers in the far-off country
followed, and with little difficulty accom
plished their task. Another instance is
that of a bridge, also to be constructed in
India but not yet completed. This work
involves the placing of very heavy
weights and certain difficulties incident
to the rapid changes of the level of the
water to be crossed. At the present time
just such another bridge is in process of
erection m -Lonuoiij and tne assistance oi
photography is again called in. As the
London bridge grows toward completion.
photographs are constantly made; and
so when the Indian engineers begin their
work, they will be in possession of a set
of guides of invaluable assistance to tnem.
A GrassJionner Storv.
One of the most credible stories is to
the effect that, a few weeks ago, a womm
dug up a panful of dirt in which to plant
some fiower-seed. She put the pan un
der the stove and went out to see a
neighbor. Upon her return, after an
hour's absence she found seven thousand
bushels of grasshoppers generated by the
heat, literally eating her out of house and
home. They first attacked the green
shades on the windows, and then a green
Irish servant girl, asleep in on of the
rooms, was the next victim, and not a
vestige of her wa3 left. The stove and
stovejnpe followed, and then the house
was torn down so they could get at the
chimney. Boards, joist, beams, plaster
ing, clothing, nails, hinges, door knobs,
nlatc. tinware, everything, in" fact, the
house contained, was eaten up, and when
she arrived within a mile of the place,
she saw two large grasshoppers sitting
up on end and playing mumble-peg with
with a carving knife for which should
have the cellar. The way matters leak
ed out was in a suit brought against the

picture of Jeff Davis' present life and the
ill-fortune that has dogged him ever since
his downfall began. He came out of
the great struggle, says the writer, with
money enough to enable him to live com
fortably for his remaining days, but an
evil genius seems to have pursued him;
every investment was a failure. He sought
employment and was made president of
a life insurance company; it endured his
administration for a year or two, and then
gave up the ghost. He bought stocks, but
always to sell at less than cost. And now
he h or very soon wilI be. dependent upon
the charity of the people, manv of whom
have an aversion for him. He would
rather work than lay hinself under obliga

persistently follows. Indeed, he has but

numerous family, in a very quiet way,
avoiding publicity. He declined to deliver
the Decoration Day address at Memphis,
saying that he was directly interested and
that he might say something that he
would afterward be sorry for. His pun

Goodness of Gen Zee
The following anecdote is told by that
gallant and genial gentleman, Col. Kane.
On his way on one occasion to visit Gen.
Lee, a country gentlemen informed Col.
Kane that he'had just sent a fine sheep
to Gen. Lee. This was good news to
Col. Kane, who having been living a long
time on bacon, was considerable refresh
ed by the prospect of a dinner of tine
mutton. When the dinner came off
there was nothing but a piece of bacon
andgreens.com bread, and some milk.
After awhile Col. Kane jocularly re
marked to Gen. Lee that Mr. had
told him he had sent him a sheep lately.
"Yes," replied Gen. Lee, "it was very
kind of him, and I am very much
obliged to him, indeed, and I sent it to
the hospital." Col. Kane afterwards
laughingly expressed the opinion to Gen.
Lee that the piece of bacon on the table
must be the same old piece that he dined
off when he was there before. . Here is
an illustration of humanity, self-denial,
and Spartan simplicity.
One of the my raid singular industries
pursued by the ingenious Parisians is
that of fattening snails for the market.
That the demand for this article of diet is
large Is proved by the fact that a great
number of persons find profitable em
ployment in furnishing an adequate sup
ply. Most small breeders who carry on
their business outside " the barriers"
of Paris fatten the molluscs in tanks, but
some prefer to keep the c reatures in the
open air. The preserve in which snails are
fed is divided into eight or ten separate in
closures, each of which is surrounded by a
line of sawdust four inches broad, and
freshl.v laid each morning. This simple
hedge is an effectual barrier to the pass
age of any Helix tempted to indulge
vagabond propensities and stray beyond
the boundaries of its allotted precincts.
Each daily consignment of snails is de
posited in one of the parks or inclosures,
and left to fast for 48 hours. After this
they are removed to another nark, whprp
they are provided witn an abundance of
ioou, consisting oi caouages, lettuce, en
dives, thyme, and vine leaves. Purified
by their prolonged fast, the snails eat
u emu in uiiit ui ieu uays
,are fat enough to satisfy the eye and taste
oi a jrarisian epicure. The tax upon fat
ted snails is very small, but it is estimated
tnar, were me levy to be raised to one
ouarter of that set unon ovsters. and BO
snails to be counted worth one dozen bi
valves, the revenue auuually arising from
their consumntion in T'aris would
amount to 200,000 francs.
It is stated that a diet of snails reduces
a man's fiesh until he becomes a mere
skeleton. The edible snail of the Gold
Coast lias a shell three inches long by
two inches deep. From this he pro
trudes a pair of tentacles four inches in
length. These tentacles are the choice
part of the animal, and are served whole
in that savory compound called snail

Feveral years ago a slab-sided, awk
ward printer boy, from Maine, found his
way to n ashmgton m search of an
" easy place." Tom Ewing was then Sec
retary of the Interior. He was uncle of
our gawky place-hunter. To him the
youngster naturally applied for assist
ance in getting the desired situation.
This was the encouraging answer he got
from Ewing : "I will not get you a place
in any of the departments. Moreover, if
you find a place and go to work I will
use my lnlluence to have you dismissed.
l want you to get out of Washington.
I am not going to have vou made into a
limp and helpless nonemtv, if I can heln
it. Go anywhere else: go to the devil, if
you like, you shan t stay m A ashmg

printer youth back to Maine again.
Had Ewmg lound him the desired place.
he would to-day be tying tape around
bundled documents, or sticking official
stamps on somebody else's letters, in
one of the departments, an inert human
routine machine. But the uncleV sen
sible brusqueness was the nephew's sal
vation. The name of that discouraged
applicant was James G. Blaine.

A Novelty in Surveying,
The delicate chemical balance has been
added to the list of surve'ors' instru
ments. By the aid of this instrument the
number of acres in an irregularl'- shaped
surface may be accurately computed.
The method by which this is applied is
simple enough. The plan of the
desired territory, having been first meas
ured and reduced by scale to paper, is
is then cut out and carefully weighed. A
portion f the same paper that Is, paper
ot tne same weight and thickness is
then cut to a size that will represent one
acre, and its weight recorded. By dividing
the weight of the paper that represents,
in outline, the whole section surveyed.
by the weight of that which represents
one acre, the quotient represents the
number of acres and fractions of an acre
in the whole. This way of Tmeasureing
surface gives less trouble, less calculation,
and less liability to error than any other
