dress should be one of utility

moreover, that the practice o.

Liability of Common Carries
for to Persons traveling
The Supreme Oourt of the
United States affirmed ihe de
cision ol the Circuit Court of
the Suu'hern District of New
York, awarding damages lo a
drover named Lncluvood, who
received injuries while riding
on a drover's pass. The court
directs the payment ol interest
at the usual rates in such cases
in New York, sustaining tne
rulings below, that the contract
made by the delendant and the
pass issued to him were no im
pedimenta in the way of recov
ering, if he was not guilty ol
neglect of ordinary care aud
prudence. Which contributed to
his injury, and that there was
no such negligence on his part
in leaving the car and proceed
ing to look alter his cattle in
the matter as would debar re
covery. Justice Bradley de
livered the opinion.
After being taken 'to Black-

Protestants. lie was eutered
as Protestant. He was taken
lo the bath, then had his head
shaved, beard taken off, and
was arrayed in a full striped
uniform. lie had two letters
from New York city physicians
recommending that he be plac
ed in the hospital, but after ex-
aimnatiou by the penitentiary
physicians be was remanded to
a common cell like all other
lelons. The jacket given him
to wear is known at. the peni
tentiary as the "larceny jack

he was led away to his cell
when he and a lew frieudd and
reporters left the island.

A Big Blow.
Last evening, while the
Chief engineer of a lung-tester
was expatiating upon the ben
efits to be derived from the
free use of his instrument, a
cadaverous individual stepped
outol the crowd and remaiked
"Mister do you think it
would help mo any to blow in
to that can?"
'Yes, sir, certainly; it would
expand your thesf, give elas ,
ticity toyour lungs, and length
en your lite. Why, you'd soon
be able to blow 500 pounds
aud win the S5 prize."
"Why, does a iellow get 3

Yes, sir, wouldn't you like
to make a trial?'' with a know
innr wink to the crowd.
'1 don't care if 1 do," said
Greens, walking around and
plauking down a dime of the
greasy shinplaster sort.
Then taking the mouth pice J
in his hand, he made ready.
He opened his mrtuth until the
hole in his face looked like a
drydock for ocean steamers,
and began to lat;e in wind.
The inflation was like that ot
the Oraphic baloon, but not so
disastrous. That fellow's chest
began to grow and distend un
lil he resembled a pouter pig

point he put tho mouth piece
to his lips and blew with such
iorce that his eyes ennie out

matter but that ran top went
up like a 11 isli, and Ihe needle
ot the indicator spun around
like the button on a coun'ry
school house door, until it
stood still at 500 pounds! The
crowd cheered, and the keeper
of the can paid over the 5 in
stamps, with a mutter of as
tonishment. But Greens pock
eted them coolly, and turning
to the spectators, said:
"Look here, gen's, that ain't
nothing to do at all for a man
who has been a bugler in a

"LIVELY DEMOCRATIC CAUCt'3.
"The Democratic caucus Sat

strong indorsement by the ma

drawal of Coi, of New York,
Ilolmnn, Of Indiana, and Mil

troduced a resolution con
demning the back pav and all

Mr. Cox as an anti-salary can

demagogue, and applied bitter
epithets of a personal chsrac.

bid fair to become general, bui
was quietpd by the 1 eU of the
above named member!. 1h
caucus then proceeded to show
its appreciation of Holman's
motion by nominating Fernan

when the salary bill was about
to fail when on its final pass
