rho Chihuahua Chiquita Dog?A BearottfBl
Creature?A Scared Traveler. |i
Every Mexican owns at. least one Ch>
auahua chiquita dog. They are beautiful
little creatures and of two varieties?ona
svith long, sdky hair, the other with a
? ibort smooth coat that is soft as velvet
go the touch. I have seen full grown
specimens that weighed a trifle over a
pound and young puppies about the size
of field mice. They have large, ex
pressive eyes and the best of dispositions.
A fashionable Philadelpliia lady, with
one of these diminutive creatures as her
companion on a promenade down Chest
nut street, would attract as much atten
tion as did Barnum's Jumbo,
My first introduction to the Chihuahua
chiquita was in Presidio del Norte, Texas,
a little town on the bank of the Rio
Grande. I reached - there late in the
afternoon, with a letter of introduction
to the principal merchant, an American
named Russell. He received me very
cordially and gave me the keys to his
corral and feed box.
"Put up your horse," he said, "butlook
out for the dog. I'd send one of the
Mexicans around, but they're all busy
I was bitten by a dog once and have a
wholesome respect for the smallest and
? most inoffensive of the race. As I led
my horse around to the corral gate I
examined my six shooter to see if it was
properly loaded and when I entered the
enclosure my trepidation was not |
diminished when I saw staring me in the
face an enormous sign with the legend,
"Beware of the dog!" painted on it in
great black characters.
A cold perspiration began to ooze from
every pore of my body and if the som
brero that I wore hadn't been so heavy I
believe that my rising hair would have
lifted it off my head. I walked on the
lee side of my horse, my cocked six
shooter in my hand, with every sense
alert to warn me of the approach of the
ferocious monster, who was no doubt
sleeping in one corner of the corral. With
trembling fingers I unsaddled my horse
and my knees knocked together as I
measured out his feed. So far I had
escaped the notice of the dog, and I was
backing toward the corral gate, inwardly
congratulating myself on my fortunate
escape, when I heard a yelping bark,
about as loud as the chirp of an English
sparrow, and on?) of these Chihuahua
chiquitas came bounding across the yard,
moving leaps that measured at least six
inches in length. He looked so ridiculous
that I burst out laughing, whereat he
stopped barking and began to wag his
?t?iputian tail and frisk about like a rat.
I learned afterward that he was the only
canine about the place, and his owner
has the reputation all along the frontier
of being a confirmed practical joker.?

Endangering: a Clerk's Position.
If the women who spend so much, of
their time in shopping day after day only
knew how muoh they jeopardize the po
sitions of the clerks by not buying per
hapa they would not spend so much time
in overruling box after box of goods
simply to see the latest fashions and with
out the least intention of buying.
The employer or floor-walker is sup
posed to know if the lady, who has been
for the last hah? hour looking over a box
of laces, intends buying or not. He does
not know that the laces are only being
looked at, to see the newest patterns, or
to consume time while waiting for a
friend. The same thing has ocourred
during the day, and, perhaps, on several
days previous?ladies leaving the counter
without buying. The proprietor then
gets the idea that the clerk is not smart;
he has seen a number during the past
week leave her counter, ana when tjie
clerk receives her pay envelope on Satur
day night she finds in it a short note Bay
ing her "services arc no longer required."
The Costliest Wine in tho World.
It costs only $273 a drop. The wine I
refer to is kept in the ancient cellar
under the Hotel de Ville in the city of
Bremen, and was deposited there over
350 years ago. There wore twelve large
cases, each having a name of one of the
Apostles, and, strange to say, that
having the name of Judas is the most
highly esteemed. One case of the wine,
containing five oxhoft of 204 bottles,
cost 500 rix dollars in 1624.
Including the expenses of keeping up
the cellar, and of the contributions and
interest, an oxhoft costs at the present
time 505,657,640 rix dollars, and conse
quently a bottle is worth 2,723,812 rix
dollars; a glass or the eighth part of a
bottle is worth 340,476 rix dollars or
$373,380, or $373 per drop. A burgo
master of Bremen is privileged to have
one bottle whenever he entertains a
distinguished guest who enjoys a Ger
man or European roputation.?Foreign
Health of the Cities of China.
The popular notion that the inhabitants
of Chinese cities are given to unwhole
some habits does not seem to be well
founded. Dr. Dodgeon, in a recent work
on the diet, dress, and dwellings of the
Chinese, says that the people have admir
ingly adapted themselves to their sur
roundings, and enjoy a maximum of com
fort. "They have a good many lessons
yet to teach us in respect of Jiving and
practical health." After an experience
of over twenty years with them, he says
that "they are subject to fewer diseases,
their diseases are more amenable to treat
ment, and they possess a greater freedom
from acute and inflammatory affeotions
of all kinds, if, indeed, these can be said
to exist at all," than obtains among west
em nations.?New York Sun.

MOTHER SEALS AND THEIR BABIES.
Taking a Swimming Lesion?Self-Sacri
Oeing Affection?Touching Grief'.
A Newfoundland law forbids sailing
vessels to depart for the seal hunt before
the 1st of March, and the steamers are
not allowed to leave until the 10th of that
month. This handicap acts as a protec
tion to the vessels which are dependent
upon the wind alone. The vessels arrive
when the baby seals, or "white-coats,"
are three or four weeks old, still depend
ent upon their mothers for subsistence,
and unable to escape from the hunters.
Their bodies are covered with a very
thick layer of fat, and they are far pre
ferable, for tliis reason, to the older seals.
When the baby is six weeks old it drops
its yellowish white coat, and becomes a
"ragged coat," and at this stage they be
gin to "dip," or take to the water. It is
very amusing to watch a mother seal try
ing to teach a young one to swim prop
erly. Just as the eagle stirs up her
young and encourages them to use their
wings, so the mother seals tumble the
babies into the water and give them
The old seal pushes the little one along
toward the edge of the ice, the baby all
the while whimpering and sobbing and
vainly trying to resist the steady pressure
from behind. When at last it falls into
the water it sobs so piteously that even
the mother is ashamed of herself and
helps her dear offspring back upon the ice.
Every few hours this is repeated, and
soon the young can swim and dive, and
then tho vast nursery disappears. When
they are in danger from rafting ice or
fragments of floes dashed about by the
wind and likely to crush them, the self
sacrificing affection of the mothers leads
them to brave all dangers, and they are
seen helping their young to places of
safety in the unbroken ice, sometimes
clasping them in their fore flippers and
swimming with them, or pushing them
forward with their noses.
The material instinct appears to be pe
culiarly strong in the female seal, and
the tenderness with which the mothers
watch their offspring is most touching.
When the young seals are cradled on the
ice the mothers remain in the neighbor
hood, going off each morning to fish, and
returning at intervals to give them Buck.
It is an extraordinary fact tho old seals
manage to keep holes in tho ice open
and prevent them freezing over. On re
turning from a fishing excursion extend
ing over fifty or a hundred miles, each
mother seal manages to find the hole
by which she took her departure, an * to
discover her own anow-whito cub, v. :i:
she proceeds to fondle and suckle. Tin's
is certainly one of the most remarkable
achievements of animal instinct. The
young "white-coats" are scattered in
myriads over tho ice field. During the
absence of the mother the ice field has
shifted in position, perhaps many miles
being borne on the current. Yet each
mother seal is able to pick out her own
hole and to pick out her own cub from
the immense herd with unerring accu
racy. It is quite touching to witness their
signs of distress and grief when they re
turn to find only a pool of blood and a
skinless carcass instead of their whim
pering little ones.?New York Sun.
Disastrous Results of Persecution.
A writer in The Journal des Debats
points out that enormous fields of cereals
in Russia in every stage of cultivation
have been left untouched during the past
year, solely because of the partial exclu
sion of the Jews from the cereal trade,
brought about by the recent presecutions.
A calculation made on the basis of pre
vious harvests, compared with the
splendid harvests that Russia was prom
ised year before last, shows that in con
sequence of the mactivity of the Jews
not mote than a fifth of the produce has
been garnered and brought to the Rus
"The reason for this is," says the
writer, "that the Jews have ceased to ex
ploit the Russian population, will lend
the farmers and landlords no more
money, will buy no more grain of them,
will not use their carrying and mercan
tile machinery for the shipping of corn,"
eta The consequence is that considera
ble quantities of cereal produce are left
to rot in the fields or to be eaten up by
The article concludes with the observa
tion that if some very - stringent reform
is not soon introduced into the civil and
political condition of the Russian Jews
the withdrawal of their capital, activity
and intelligence from the empire will
have the result of seriously affecting the
grain markets of Europe. This should
be of particular interest to the United
States as the greatest corn exporting
country in the world.?Brooklyn Eagle.
English Pictorial Electioneering.
At the recent parliamentary election
in Great Britain many of the candidates
sent "voting cards" to the electors in the
districts they desired to represent, with
directions how to mark them so as to
designate their preference. A few who
were sjjecially good looking, or who
thought they were, bad their portraits
printed on the cards they sent out. On
Bome of the cards a view of tho home of
the candidate was presented, and a brief
[ account of his life and public services.
One paper expresses the opinion that
these illustrated cards exerted a power
ful influence on the election in certain
districts and resulted in returning to
parliament quite a number of men more
distinguished for their fino looks than
for their ability, scholarship, political ex
perience, or statesmanship.
Where London Gets Her Butter.
It is stated upon good authority that
more than one-half of the fresh butter
consumed in the fashionable quarters of
London is imported from France. Dairy
ing in both England and Ireland is not a

future outlook Ls far from encouraging.

THE CARE OF FINE H?RSES.
?- '.''J ?
vffhe Trouble Is that Many Klch Owners
Treat their Horses Unwisely.
"The great trouble," said Mr. Robert
Bonner "is that so many men who are
able to buy fine stock do not know how
their horses should be taken care of, and
are unable to watch and see whether
those whom they employ thoroughly
understand their business. There is a
great deal in what is said there about the
feeding of horses. Nothing is more im
portant at this season of the year. Their
eating should be looked after as carefully
as you would after the feeding of a man
unable to care for himself.
"If a man sits oil day at a de3k and
writes, without taking exercise, he can
not cat half as much as a laborer who
handles a pick and shovel. It is just the
same with horses. You take the hack
horses that run around up at Tarrytown,
going half a mile in one direction, two
miles in another, and using up then
strength in climbing over those hills.
They need from twenty to twenty-rfour
quarts of oats a day, and they would eat
even more if they could get it. But trot
ting horses, even in the trotting season,
wiU not eat on an average more than
twelve quarts a day; you can't make
them, because the work they do does not
wear away their strength as does the
alow plodding of the hack horse, In this
season of the year the trotting horses do
almost nothing, and if allowed to eat
what they want to, they take on fat and
get themselves into a very bad condition.
"Now, taking Maud S., for example.
Well, she is a glutton, if ever there was
one. As Bair said to me the other day,
she was never known to leave around a
mouthful of anything to cat. She would
eat twelve quarts of oats a day now if I
would let her, but I give her barely six
quarts, and let her grumble to herself
about my stinginess if she wants to. As
it is, she keeps in fine condition, just nice
and right. If I let her eat her fill she
would get as fat as a porpoise; and even
if nothing worse happened, I should have
the hardest kind of work to get her back
into condition when spring came around
again. Of course economy or an idea as
that has nothing to do with it. When I
give $40,000 for a mare I don't care how
much she eats. If 100 quarts of oats a
day would do her any good I'd only be
too glad ir give it to her. That is the
great trouble with a man who has a fine
animal; he is likely to be too indulgent
and kill the horse with kindness. Firm
ness is what a man must have, no matter
how much he may think of his horse.
"Of course, there are exceptions to
every rule; some horses wfil not get fat,
no matter how much you feed them.
There is Keene Jim, ahorse that I bought
of Mr. Paul Dana for $4.000; you can't
get that horse fat, no matter how much
you may feed him. He is a kind of
horse that won't fatten, just Jiko some
men who are always lean and lank, no
matter how good a cook they have.
"One thing that may cause the lossnf
many valuable horses at this time of the
year is ignorance, or carelessness, that
results in their catching, cold. Horses
are exercised too violently, perhaps, Mid
then allowed to stop and grow coIdjSd
denly. - That is all wrong; such^W?tf
ment is likely to kill a man, and it is just
as dangerous for a horse. After my
horses are exercised they are warmly
blanketed and my boys lead them around
my stables more and more slowly. A
horse wants to cool off gradually and
slowly, as the air does when the sun sets,
not like a bottle of wine stuck into a
freezer. And thon, too, you can't be too
careful in exercising and drivin, rses
at this time of the year. They Aild
be taken out every day without fail
when the weather permits, but be very
careful. H you speed your horse in the
face of a cold wind, all that cold air
pouring into his lungs is likely to injure
him very much, and give him lung fever,
"And even when it is fine you can't be
too careful about the surface on which
your horse is trotting. I wouldn't for
for $10,000 let Maud S. go out and hy for
half a mile at top speed on the hard roads
of Central park, and yet lots of men send
their best stock flying over such roads
daily. A man who knew anything and
saw such a thing done would take the
horse away from the driver and say he
was crazy. The best chance you can get
to drive in winter is on the soft snow.
That won't hurt any horse. Only be care
ful and not drive them too much at first.
The slipping of their feet before they
become accustomed to the icy surface is
very painful to the legs, and they should
be worked up to it graduaRy."?New
Fidelity of the King's Terrier.
Th? deepest mourner of any since King
Alfonso's death has been Ugly, his Skye
terrier. The poor animal howled to be
allowed to go with him to El Pardo, but
was not allowed. She got there notwith
standing, but how nobody knows. When
the king was dead she was found lying
under his L2d in a state of depression.
Ugly certainly knew that she had lost
her royal master. Ever since that loss
she has been altogether off her food, and
to prevent her dying from inanition milk
and soup have to be forced down her
throat. The queen was greatly distressed
at having to allow the poor little dog to
be turned out of the mortuary chamber
when the religious cremonios were tak
ing place.?Chicago Tribune.
The Daily Papers in China.
There are many newspapers in China,
but they are stale, always. Their circu
lation is small, because the people, as a
rule, don't like to read. The news of the
day is circulated at the tea-drinking
shops in all the cities where the people
congregate in the evening. A few who
havo read the daily papers do the talk
ing, the others gathering around to hear
the news, and all commenting upon
whatever is of interest.
Fursnits That Injure tbo Eyesight.
An eminent German oculist?Dr. H.
Cohn?has made extensive researches
into the effects of study and microscopic
labor on the eyes, and he concludes that
reading and writing are much more
likely to produce shortsightedness and
otherwise impair the sight than watch
making and other minute industries.
WHAT WE SMOKE AND CHEW.
Not Always Puro Tobacco, bat Sometime*
Sweelened and Medicated Preparations.
It is rather late in the day to enter a
protest against the use of tobacco. What
ever the faculty may say on the point of
its injurious qualities, however much the
clergy may point out the possibility of
its leading to intemperance, the fact re
mains that a large proportion of the
world uses tobacco in some form or
other. In spite of all that has been said
against it by fervid anti-tobacconists,
pure tobacco is an excellent remedial
agent; but it must be absolutely pure.
No poisonous decoctions must eat into its
substance or change its nature. Used in
a proper way, to relieve neuralgic pains,
or applied in various affections, under
the advice of a skilled physician, it is a
The adulteration of tobacco, very com
mon both in this country and abroad,
arises from two considerations. The
pure, natural leaf, in its yellow hue, is
undoubtedly the finest tobacco in the
market. But so many accidents con
spire to render the finest leaves scarce
that even the natural leaf itself is im
itated. Coarse leaves are bleached by
the use of chlorine to the bright yellow
color of the natural leaf, and sulphuric
acid, properly diluted, is used to make
the little "freckles," which are supposed
by connoisseurs to indicate a superior
quality of leaf.
But the "natural leaf," somehow,
doesn't seem to suit the taste of the aver
age chewer of tobacco. He asks a cer
tain degree of sweetness in his plug. To
fill this bill and create a special flavor
which shall give a kind of identity to a
particular brand, and cause it to be
eagerly sought for is the object of the
When the bundles of steamed leaves
are fully dried they are ready for the ap
plication of the syrup and licorice, which
imparts to the chewing tobacco of com
merce its sweetness and flavor. The
leaves must be as dry as a bone when
subjected to this licorice bath, for the
least dampness will render them white
with mould in a few hours. This mould
is removed (one of the adulterations) by
a dip into diluted muriatic acidr and in
too many cases forms part of the solid
cake of a better quality. The heat of the
mixture causes the pores of the leaf to
expand, and the sweet syrup, penetrat
ing every fiber, impregnates it thor
oughly. From the vat the dripping bun
dles are carried out on the flat roof of
the factory and exposed to the sun, for
one day's sunshine is worth more than
can be told in the manufacture. After
this the leaves are taken into a drying
room, where the thermometer during the
day is at 90 degrees. At night the whole
power of the fhrnace is ? turned on, and
the heat is so intense that in the morning
the room has to be cooled off before the
operators can enter it. When the
tobacco has, under this powerful heat,
become perfectly dry, the adulterator
gets in his work.
One factory sprinkles it with New
England rum, another uses Jamaica
rum, a third moistens it with the rankest
corn whiskj- he can find, and each
brand has its own peculiar essential oil.
Some use fennel, others ginseng, while
the acrid sumach, abounding in tannin,
cheap and plenty, gives that peculiar
burning of the tongue wrhich character
izes much "fine cut." Astringent barks,
wormwood, the refuse of the cinchona,
and others, give the bitter taste which
some consumers like, and the twist or

to tropical climates, gets a special ab

Uniform Method of Cut Coupling.
There is an imperative n ecessity that the
railways adopt some uniform method of
car couple for freight, such as is in service
on through passenger cars. The multiplic
ity of kinds and conditions of links, pins
and bumpers, and the constant sacrifice of
life through these means, is bringing the
public to a sense of the situation, and the
railways ought to move before aggressive
legislation is prompted by public clamor.
A tram of thirty-one freight-cars hauled
out of a northern yard a short time ago,
on which the conductor pointed out
eighteen different styles of links, pins
and bumpers, and stated that it was in
attempting to coupled these extremes of
styles that men were killed.
It is the experienced men who are
slaughtered, seldom from carelessness,
but from a miscalculation of the differ

have been produced by the typographical
department of that empire, under the
supervision of Dr. Naumann, a German
engineer of high attainments, who has
been succeeded as director, however, by
a recently appointed native officer. Some
apprehension is expressed by those
acquainted with the circumstances that
the map-making work may deteriorate
in consequence of the change; but it is
not strange that so intelligent a people

wholly into their own hands as soon as
they felt themselves capable of conduct
