Fun with a Spider.
Spielers, in many respects, arc just
like other animals, and can be tamed
and petted, and taught a great many
lessons, and which they will learn as
readily as a dog or cat, But you
must take the trouble to study their
ways, and get on the good side of
them. One day 1 had been reading
in a book how spiders managed to get
their webs across streams and roads,
and from the top of a till tree to
another. I went out and caught a
large garden spider?one ot tho?e
blue graw sprawling fellows, and fixed
hi in up for my experiment. 1 took a
stick about eighteen inches in length,
and fastened a piece ol iron to one
end of it, so that the stick would
stand upon that end of itself. Then I
put this in the center of a huge tub
half full of wator, and placed the
spider on top of the stick. I wauled
to see if it could get to "land," which
was the edge of the tub, without any
help, lie ran down first one side the
stick and then the other. Fach time
he would stop when he touched ihe
wator, and shaking bis foot as the cat
docs would run upagam. A t last he
came to the conclusion that ho was
entirely surrounded by water?on an
island in fact. After remaining pnr
feetly quiet for a long while, during
which, 1 have no doubt, he was arra'.ig
ing his plans, he began running
around to the top of the stick, and
throwing out gicat coils of web with I
his hind feet. In a few minutes little ?
fine strings id'web were floating in the H
.-lignt hree/.e mat was blowing. After
a li'tle, one of these threads touched
the edge of tlie tub, and stuck fast, as
all spider webs will do. This was just
what Mr. Spider was looking for, and
the next minute, be too k hold of his
web, and gave n jerk as a sailor dues
with a rope when he wishes to see how
strong it is, or make it fast. Having
satisfied himself that it was fust at the
other end, he gathered it in till it was
tight and straight, and then ran on it
to the shore?a rescued castaway.?

The Bennett?May Dud.

New York, January 0.?Tho
latest report8 regarding the Bennett
May duel are as follows : Mr. Ben
nett ieft here Thursday and went to
[Boston. This was n ruse to draw off
the attention of the public. He did
,not know where tho combat would be
fought, the arrangements being left
.to his friends, Mr. S. II. Robertson.
Mr. Fred. May, of Baltimore in the
moan time arrived as second, und
with Mr- Robertson, the terms of
meeting or details ol time and place,
and weapons, e'e, were arranged.
Tho place selected was Slaughter

region is very sparely settled. M r:

On Friday night Mr. Bennett,
effectually disguised, returned from
Boston, passed hurriedly through
-New York, nnd took the night train
on the Pennsylvania Railroad, hav
ing been joined by his second and by
Dr. Charles Phclps, who went in the
capacity surgeon. They went to Balti
more, where they received a letter
from Mr. Pied May, of that city,
containing formal announcement to
the second of the Bennett party of the
preciso time and place. The parties
arrived at Slaughter Station yester
day morning, and the duel was fought
at two o'clock in an open space in the

the two men turned mid fired almost
simultaneously. May staggered, hut
Menuett stood for a 'oment holding
his still smoking pistol almost in the
position in which he. had fired. Dr.
Tighlaman ran forward to Mr. May
and examined his wound. Lie thought
it would not prove fatal, hut was of
such a nature as to prevent him from
having an equal chance with his
antagonist at a second shot.* T he
wound was in the leg. Mr. Bennett
and his party immediately returned
to Philadelphia, and May was carried
to vhe house of a relative.
Later?Bexnett't Surgeon in
New York, January 10.?Dr.
Charles P helps, who was connected
with the May-Bennett duel, was snb
puMiaed before the grand jury to-day
by the district attorney to testify con
cerning it. He refused to answer
any questions, on the ground that he
would criminate himself, and being
brought before Judge Gihlcrslcevo in
the Court of General Sessions*and
still refusing, he was committed to the
city prison for thirty days for con
tempt of court.
The counsel for Dr. C. Phclps ap
plied to Judge Donahue of the
Supreme Court for a writ of habeas
corpus. The petitioner says he was
subpoenaed before the grand jury and
asked to answer certain questions
tending to show that be was cogniz
ant of pome alleged crime which had
occurred out of the jurisdiction of this
court, which he refused to answer,
and was committed for alleged con
tempt of court. That the grand jury
had no jurisdiction to inquire it to tho
matter, because the answer to their
questions would tend to expose him
to prosecutions in another State lor
felony, wherefore he prays for a writ
of habeas corpus, Ac. Judge Dona
hue granted the writ and made it re
turnable in the Supreme Court Th?rs
day morning. The following are the
questions asked by the grand jury :
"On leaving New York on Sunday
did you sec James Gordon Bennett?"
"Whcro did you last see him ?'' "Did
you know of auy hostile meeting hav
ing occurred between Mr. Bennett
and Mi*. May ?" "After leaving Now
York Sunday, when and where did
you see Mr. Bennett?" "At whose
request or intervention did yon leave
New York on Sunday?"
How Ben Hill Looks.
Mr. Hill is now fifty-three years of
I age, is a Georgian by birth, and a
man of fine personal apearance, being
above the average height, lithe and
sinewy, without any appearance ol
leanness. He has a squnrc face, large,
steady glancing, blue-eye?, a thin
lippcd, firm set mouth, the upper lip
cleanly shaven always, with a full,
clipped beard. His hair is rather
brist .ig and slightly wavy, standing
up and back from his forehead, and
is, together with his whiskers, of a
yellowish brown color, with a small
bald spot on the crown. 1 le possesses
an exceedingly pleasant almost musi
cal voice, and is graceful and easy in
gesticulation. The most character
istic point connected with his personal
bearing in the peculiar manner in
which he habitually carries his head,
which he does by dtopping his chin
almcst upon his breast, and looking
up and out from under his eyebrows.
This he does alike iu walking and sit
ting, but when speaking he throws his
head up and square; Mr. Hill is one
of the most scholarly men in congress
and is a great lover of books and
home. He is never seen about the
hotel lobbies or roiling around as the
common run of congressmen do, and
he is never absent from the house
w henever any matter of importance
is under discussion, for his peculiar
attitude will always arrest the eye of
the observer as lib sits somewhere
near the man who may bespeaking,
so that he hears clearly what is giin g
on iu the noi y chamber.
