Notice to the Afflicted and Unfortunate. An Amusing Story.
"The rmn in Ihe gallerj
writes to tbe Albany Times:
A gentleman who now occu
pies a seat iu the upper branch,
but at the time wM a member
of the 'Assembly, jrelates the
following:
Perkins wai'as hpnest a roan
as ever set foot lin Albany.
Money wouldn't bay him, and
I knew it, but I thought I
would have a littlje fun with
him so I went down, to liia room
one evening and laid: "Fer
kina, what do you think ot that
underground railroad bill! Are
you going to vote for ill"
'Well," said reruns, "I have
not made up my mfud yet, ex
actly. I am inclined to think
it is a good, Lili, but why do
you ask?"
"I thought you were in favor
of it, said 1, "and as long as you
have concluded to vote lor it, I
just want to say that the men
interested in it are paying five
hundred dollars for votes, and
as it is coming up on its final
passage to morrow, you cau
just as well have the money as
not, you will vote for the bill
anyway."
'Vote for the bill! I'll bo
hanged first,' exclaimed the
irate Terkins. Wo, sir. If im
proper means are being adopt
ed to pass this thing,as yu'i say,
I, fur one, shall vote against it
evtry time. You can't put me
down no!"
"Oh, I don't caro anything
about it, I tho't lo do you a ia
vor, ana I think I can yet, lor,
to tell you the troth, the rival
companies are here ia full
force and are moving heaven
and earth to deieat it. They
are paying the same amount
ior "noes," and as long as you
are bound to vote that way, Til
get you the five hundred all the
same."
"Can such things be?" ex
claimed Perkins rising from bis
seat, and tearing up and down
the room in a whirlwind ol
righteous wrath and virtuous
indignation. ''What a state of
things this iI A plague on
both our houses. I won't vote
at a.l."
'All right," said I, as I laid
my hanJs on the handle of the
door, 'Til gel you five hundred
dollars for being absent.
Game Laws.
The came laws oi Ohio make
a staple article ot local litera
ture about this time, when so
many sportsmen are scouring
up their pieces lor the fall
snooting. The following is the
subi- ance of the game laws ot
this State:
All kinds of wild duck may
be killed any time from the
first day of September until
the 15: h of April Wild geese
are not protected by law.
Meadow larks and kiMdeers
may be killed from October 1
until February 1.
Woodcock may be killed
Irom the 4lh of July until the
1st of February.
Quail, phesants and wild lur
keys may be killed Irom the
15th of October until the 1st
day of February.
Doves and rabbits may be
killed from November 1 until
February 1.
It is unlawful to catch, or at
tempt to catch, with a net,
snare or trap, any quail or Vir
ginia partridge.
It is unlawiul to kill the fol
lowing birds at any time: Spar

or finch.
The fine for violating the law
is not less than two dollars nor
more than twenty dollars, or
imprisonment ia the county
jail not more than twenty days,

or both, at the discrtUon .of
An Odd Pet.
A writer in speaking of sail
ors' pets, tells us ol Jock, a seal
of tender years, who for many
months retained the affections
of all hands, until washed over
board in a gale of wind. This
creature's time on board was
fully occupied in a round of
duty, pleasure and labor. 11 is
dutv consisted in eating seven
meals a day, and bathing in a
tub after each; his pleasure to
lie on his side to lie on the
quarter-deck and be scratched
and petted; while his labor
consisted ia ceaselessly en
deavoring to enlarge a certain
scupper hole sufficiently to
permit his escape to his native
ocean, liow indefatigably he
used to work day after day and
hour alter hour, scraping on the
the iron first with one dipper,
then another, then poking his
nose in to measure the result
with his whiskered facet lie
kept the whole bright and
clear, but bid not sensibly en
large it, at least to human
ken."
A Safe Lock.
An invention has been pat
ented which will prevent the
recurrence of robberies like
that at the Waterford bank, by
rendering the unlocking of the
bank vault at any unusual
time, even by the officers, an
impossibility. The invention
consists in attaching a clock
to a combiuation lock, which,
previous to locking a safe, may
be set at any hour, aud until
that hour comes, unlocking or
pickin the safe is absolutely
impossible. A bank, ior in
stance, is to be opened at 10
o'clock in tbe morning. The
clock if set so as to permit the
lock to be turned at 10 o'clock
and the cashier himself can
not open the bank, unlil that
hour, for the clock is set from
tbe inside, and can not be tarn
pered with after the door is
closed. When 10 o'clock ar
rives, any one having knowl
edge ot the numbers indicat
ing tbe combination can un
lock the vault in tbe usual
manner.
Tiierk are in actual opera
tion in this country 67,104
milps ol railroad, ol which 6,
429 miles have been completed
since 1872, and over 30,000
miles since 1863. Of this to
tal ol mileage there are com
plete ntatistics Irom only 57,
231 miles, the balance oi 9,
871 miles being so nearly com
pleted as to have yet made no
reliable returns. The cost of
construction of the roads
whose figures are given was 4,
159,423,057, and is represent
ed by $1,511,578 944 oi capital
shares and 81,323,844,113 ol
bouded and other indebtedness
Their total earnings for the
year amounted to $473 241,055,
of which $132,309,370 was
Irom transportation of passen
gers. The earnings weie over
15 per cent, on the money in
vested. The cost of running
for the year was $307 484,362,
and the net profit $165,743,705.
Their earnings averaged $11 76
per head of the entire popula
tion of the United States.
The editor of tbe Knoxville
(Iowa) Democrat thus jokes
over the condition ot ihe peel
ed and scattered parly in that
State:
There is Hot enough left of
the old banner under which we
have been fighting lor years, to
patch the seat of tbe trowsers
of a Court House rat. We are
scattered; and in the race
through tbe brush, the devil
will not only get tbe hindmost,
but may gobble the whole lot.
Which will be a good joke on
the deviil"
"Fixcf, you needn't wait any
longer; it is star-light over
head. "Yes, but we ain't goin'
that way."

ing when it becomes much

who was always subject to the

in that way since we used the

he has gone to his crib so
hoarse he could hardly speak.

Selected
Laura Cuppv Smitu, the spir.
itualist and free lover, writes:
"The lover of my girlhood now
walks the viewless causeways
of the air, and inasmuch as he
was cultured, lofty-souled and
large hearted, he doubtless
loves and is beloved by many
a fair and queenly woman, in
'that land of light and song;'
yet he finds time to return to
earths turbulent scenes and
bathe my toil worn spirits in
the deep waters of his passion
ate and intense affection, and
those chords in my inmost be
ing that first responded to his
touch, remaining mute in pres
ence of all others, thrill and
vibrate as of yore, in ectasy of
rapture when swept by his
spirit touch.'' Which, says the
editor in commenting upon
this poetic effusion, is blissful
but unjatisfactorv.
Is Sullivan county, N. Y.,
there is published the Liberty
Register, and of those who en
rich its advertising Columns is
one Dusenberry. Ilis notice
thus begins: "It is admitted
that we not only love our
wives, but also our children,
brothers and sisters. They die
We want a suitable coltin or
casket lor the jewel and a ten
der and careful hand to take
it up and bear it to its last
resting place. Who will do it
lor us?" Dusenberry answers
this by saying he will, and he
further remarks: "A good
hearse and peerless team ol
horses in wa ting, at all times,
to receive or deliver a corpse
at the railroad station, or go
elsewhere as far as human
voice is heard or human track
is run."
BisiiuP imi'son u laithful to
his committals on "Woman's
Rights," though be has been
somewhat quiet on the ques
tion since it was taken in hand
by an exceptional class) of wo
men. Recently at South Bend
he said: ''Pardon a digression.
I want the day to come when
women will vote. Without
their vote I tear we will never
be able lo put down the houses
of infamy and liquor saloons
of our country. N thing is so
ruinous to the country, it is
true, and it is my opinion that
we can't get along without the
women voting. It is not good
for man to be alone "
A paragraph: is going the
rounds ot the press to the ef
fect that at Lafayette, Ind., the
papers are complaining in
right down earnest because
troops of girls go in swimming
in conspicuous places in the
river. It is a device of tbo
newspapers to draw the atten
tion of rest-seekers lo the
charms of Lafayette as a wa
tering place.
The "mention" with which
the Omaha editors take pleas
ure in honoring their friends
is illustrated hy the following
choice morsel of recent dale:
"W. M. Madden, commonl
known as 'Fatty, the grea
American traveler,' arrived in
this city recently, And sampled
forty kegs of beer, besides at
tending the circus, and eating
eight straight meals at the Wy
