one of the others was.
By-and-by another guest dropped in,

rest came in, and were likewise mortified.
But the marquis had taught thech all a

Yesterday afternoon a big Paradise
Valley grasshopper strutted into the upper
end of town, and tackled a mule in front
of Ran's blacksmith-shop. The mule had
just been -shod, and realizing his danger,
kicked his adversary full in the head. The
hopper blinked a little, felt of his forehead
with hid fore-claw, and finding it all right,
sprang boldly upon the mule, and throw
.ing his legs itrdund him, proceeded to eat
his head off. The cries of the :oor animal
asttracted a large crowd, and an attempt
wi as made to shoot the grasshopper, but it
was too ite. Leaving the mule dead in
the road, the hopper skipped off toward
the State's Prison to whet his teeth on the
granite quarry. The mule was the prop
erty of John Doe, and vaIiied at $250.-

A ANoble N'ewfoundland Dog.
Ti he first dog of any note that my father
possessed was a black Newfoundland, says
an: English lady. He was a very power
ful and . intelligent animal. Mfy father
trained him well, and taughit him to go
from ur counitry place to the town, with
a basket-fastened around his neck, vith
noastP inside for the different tradespeople,
,who., undersatod tlhat he iwould° readily
give;.thenirup,: and, if required, would
jingti.anything sent, -afely back. He was
pftqgidispatohed for a car to a hotel about
amile distantt Hector would go into the
yarsd, and the hostler -knew :at once what
was wa.ted. One day there was a strange
man in theyard, who Ciould not under

car," which settled the business.
-At thait time it w€s very angerous to
walk at night in the coutr y reae. It was
beft6e thie rufl police were appointed.
Whei ny fathei' was absentiof an eventg
Hector was always ,ent to meat him. A
spiked col.rr was put on to protect hiS1
throat. ief was told to waift at a certain
place, and he never failed to be there. Oie.
evening I w as alking holme withi-ny fathj
er; it was so dark we could scaricely se
anything. My father said, "We ought to
have met George by this time. I told him
to come with the lantern."
We walked on a few yards, and Hector
met us. He wtts half a mile ahead of his
accustomed wa.ing-place. My father was
a strict disciplinarian, and spoke sharply
to the dog, scolding him for coming on.
But I begged him not to do so, thinking
there might be some good reason for his
coming. When we reached the stile to
cross the fields the dog was restless, and
"Back, Hector, back!" said my father;
but the dog would not obey him, and bound
ed over first. "There is something thei
imatter," said my father, as he took out his
clasp-knife and opened it, whispering to
me, "tWie may have a fight. Be sure you
do not lay hold of my. arm." He then
struck a light with his flint and steel,
whereupon a man sprang up and movedl
on before us.
"Mind yourself, father," said I; "Hece
tor will take care of me." The dear crea
ture calme close to my side and put his nose
into my hand. I knew he would fight for
us to the death; for though as gentle !as as
lamb to those he loved, he was as fierce as
a lion in defe"ce of them. My father was
a very powerful and fearless man. lie had
his dlauiohter to protect, and his spirit was
thoroughly aroused;. but he kablv it would
be well to trust to tlh&' sagacity of the dog,
and see what hie would do. When we
reached the stih lie stood still and growl
ed. My father said: 'Come, you fellows,
come It once Over this stile. I know you
are there, Come at once, or I will set my
dog upon you, and he will show voQl no

then another man came grumbling. Ilec

Another came, saying, "That lie had as
much right to the road as we had.'
gtill the dog would not cross the stile.
'There is another of you. If you do not
come at once, my dog will kill you.'
Hie saw the animal's patience was well
nigh exhausted. The last then slunk over
and the dog bounded over the stile alone
into the lane. Then we knew the brave
creature had saved us. When we came to
the public-house, George, our man-ser
vant, was sitting comfortably in the porch,
Iwaiting for us with the lantern. He had
seen two men, and was afraid to come on.
I could tell many interesting stories of
this noble animal. His end was sad. When
we were removing to another house, he
was taken to protect some of the things
that were put in the loft above the stable;
i the stupid man who put him there tied
him up; the poor creature's feet had slip

The Origin of Some Ancient Ex
The word "Hurrah" is pure Slavonian,
and is commonly heard from the coast of
Dalmatia to Behring's Straits when any
one of the population living within those
limits are called on to give proof of cour
age and Valor. The origin of the word
belongs to the primitive idea that every
man who dies heroically for his coun'try
goes straight to heaven-hu-ray (to para-I
dise,) and to the shock and ardor of battle
the combatants utter the cry, as the Turks
do that of "Allah!" each animating him
self by the certitude of immediate recom- i
pense to forget earth and to contemn death.
"Shebang," which sometimes means a
hut, sometimes a low place of immoral re
sort, originated with the pupils of Yale
College, New Haven, who used it to -idi
cate their rooms or a public hall fitted up
for some theatrical or other performance.
It never was English.
"A little bird told me," comes from the
Ecclesiastes x.. 20-"For bird in the air
shall carry the voice, and that which bath
wings shall tell the matter."
Such phrases as 'iHe was beset with
duns," "He was dunned for money that
he owed," are often in use. Horne Tooke
says that dun came from the Anglo Saxon
dynan and the Icelandic dyn, and that "a
dun is one who has dinned another for
money as anything else." Another idea
is that dun comes from the French, where
donney means "give me," and that is a de
mand for something due. Another deriva
tion plainer and more matter of fact is that
in the reign of Henry VIII there was a
noted bailiff in the city of Lincoln, named
Joseph Dunn, so extremely active, so dex
terious in the management of his rough
business, that it became a saying, when a
man refused or neglected to pay his debts,
"Why don't you Dunn him?"--that is,
why don't you send Dunn to arrest him ?
In time the word dun came to have a gen
eral rather than a local acceptation. Fran
cis Bacon used it' about a century after it
originated in Lincoln, as follows: "I shall
be dunning thee every day." And Phil
lips said: "A dun, horrible master! hated
by gods and men,"
"Count their chickens ere (not before)
they're hatched" is taken from Samuel
Butler's "Hudibras," an amusing satirical
poem aimed at the Puritans of the time of
Charles I, by whom was founded the Brit
ish Republic of which Oliver Cromwell
was lord protector for several years until
his death in 1658.

Y "none" the worse) was written by William
