A FAIRY STORY OF CINCINNATI
LIFE IN THE SPRING OF '49.
How a Desperado Terrorized the "Worthy
Citizens of Porkopolls?A Bad Tarty
and No Mistake? The Little ?rammer
from the East?Nemesis.
"Why, bless your heart," the colonel
. went on to say, "I have seen thirty stal
wart men engaged in conversation on
matters of public import, and, would you
believe it? although the subject under dis
cussion was pursued for eighteen hours,
not a man in the crowd dared utter a word
but Silence Jordou! The way he terror
ized the worthy citizens of this good city
was something marvelous beyond com
pare. He would enter the most palatial
residence in town, and, after kicking the
elegant a.nd costly chandeliers to pieces,
he would compel the inmates of the house
to prepare him the' most elaborate meal
that money and industry could devise.
Then he would kick the top off all the
pianos in the house, and he down in the di
lapidated instruments for an after-dinner
nap with Ms boots on. When he walked
down the street the horse-cars had to leave
the tracks and travel on the opposite side
of the street selected by him for a prome
"He was a bad party, and no mistake.
But what I started to teU you was this:
An effeminate-looking young fellow em
ployed as a traveling salesman for an east
ern house reached town one day. He met
Silence Jordan, the riproaring terror of the
Mississippi valley, and the terror asked
him what his name was. The drummer
replied that it was Willie PhiUips. A look
of ineffable disgust swept over the entire
physiognomical contour of the bully.
"What arc you doing here, sonny?"
growled the hideous wretch.
*Kone of your infernal -? business!"
was the astounding reply, and the little
drummer at the same moment nonchal
antly struck an old-fashioned lucifer
match. The crowd assembled stood para
lyzed with fear as the gigantic rullian
began to gather himself up for a spring
at his helpless prey. As the flame
spluttered on the end of the match
held by the diminutive drummer he
flipped the stick with one of his deli
cate lily-white fingers, and a tiny globule
of the brimstone shot fairly and squarely
into the left eye of the ponderous
rowdy, who was on the point of sweeping
the Lilliputian from the face of the earth.
ANOTHER SPARK OF FIERY BRIMSTONE.
"As the burly bummer clapped both
hands upon the optic that received the ter
rible shock the little drummer flipped?the
match once more, and another spark of
the fiery brimstone flew with merciless
precision slap-dab into the other eye of the
murderous fiend, who now, instead of
seeking to devour tbe puny boy that stood
before him coolly lighting a cigare e, was
rolling on the .sidewalk writhing in the
most painful agony, yelping with all the
power of his tremendous lungs the while
he endeavored, but futilely, to allay the
-agonizing misery that was racking his
very soul aud dethroning his reason itself.
I never witnessed a more terrible specta
cle In all my varied experience as a trav
eler and observer of men and things. His
powerful frame shivered and swayed, and
his ponderous limbs threshed about like
unto the wild gyrations of the hideous cut
tle fish in mortal combat. His
piercing screams resounded afar, and
and soon the entire population
gathered to witness the mad ravings and
violent contortions of the erstwhile mon
arch of heU. But there was none so poor
to do him reverence, and soon it was dis
covered that the proud vulture of a few
minutes before was blind?stone blind. |
"When the joyous tidings of the awful
fate of the autocratic enemy of the citizens
of our beautiful burg were spread around
a glad shout of victory rent the air, and
the bonfires were lighted and the bells
pealed in token of the happy deliverance
from the. plague 1 that bad blighted the
whole city. For, finding that his" vocifer
ous plwdlngs for aid and assistance in the
shape of an eye-wash were unheeded, Si
lence Jordan staggered to his feet, and,
quaking In his frightful agony, remarked
that it was bridge time with him, and,
striding to the Suspension, flung himself

The Persians' Fear of Nicht Travel.
The Persians have an exaggerated fear
of night travel, partly from the bands of
robbers who infest the northern boundary
of the. country and partly from a super
stitious inherited dread of a singular sect
of religionists, who, like the Thugs of India
regarded a deed of murder under certain
circumstances, as a religious duty. This
sect, known as Assassins, has been lung
extinct, but such dread did their members
inspire by murders, always committed at
night, that all infantile Persia, and not a
few of the grown population, retain an
unwillingness to go out at night, for fear
of the Assassins.?Land of the Imams.
A Kat Cremated by Electricity.
A rat while attempting to.escape from
human enemies in the electric-light station
in Reading. Pa., a few weeks ago jumped
directly from the flour into one of the
brushes und was thrown back to the
ground. He laid motionless apparently
and certainly dead but without even a
hair turned. One of the employes was
sent with a shovel to gather it up, but as
soon, as the shovel touched it the rat feU

seemingly lain. There was no vestige of
hair, flesh, or bones remaining.?Electrical
New Diseases in the Menagerie.
Several kinds of quadrupeds in the Lon

due to the hard floors, and these produce
boring ulcers, which may extend clear
through the foot. Hernia occasionaUy

Valued It Just as Much.
One of her friends, not very well off in a
worldly way had brought her a simple
but pretty gift at her birthday, "it's only

apologies, T beg. I shall value it just as
much as the presents I have received
which are really worth something."?

THE VANDERBILTS OUT RIDING.
A Hundred and Fifty Millions Galloping
Through Central Park.
The 4 o'clock hour in the afternoon is
selected by those who go out more for
show and because it is fashionable. At
that time the track is too crowded for any
thing like a bracing gallop. In the early
hours of the morning, however, the drives
are quite deserted, and it- is the time pre
ferred by beginners and those who really
enjoy the exercise. jTs Vanderbilts
choose this time. One of the park police
men said: "I have never seen one of the
Vanderbilt boys in here in the afternoon.
They always come out early in the morn
ing, and generally ride together. Occa
sionally the ladies accompany them, but
they don't appear anxious to have them
along as a rule. But there they come
now. They are pretty riders, as you can
see for yourself?"
The party wve coming along at an easyi
gallop. Cornelius and W. K were in
front, while George and Fred, the young
est, brought up the rear. Probably they
are .the four richest young men in the
world, representating together over $150,
000,000. While each one showed careful
training and experience in riding, they
could hardly pass as experts. Their riding
is far above the average, but it is a little
stiff and awkard. Each one had a style of
his own. Cornelius held his rein up taut,
his feet were pressed firmly against the
stirrups and his whole demeanor indicated
that he thought horseback riding was ex
ceedingly serious business. He rode a
large bay and was dressed in the most ap
proved fashion, consisting of light trousers
buttoned close up around the ankles,
dark top coat, plain waiscoat, brown derby
hat and gloves. W. K. sat back in
the saddle, braced up as if to repel an
enemy. He held the bridle carelessly in
his left hand, but from the stern expres
sion of his face one might have been
deceived into the impression that he .was
about to lead a desperate battle charge.
He was dressed as faultlessly as his
brother, the only material change being in
a lighter top coat. The two younger men
did not appear to be weighted down with
so much dignity, and for that reason were
more natural George wore a light suit
throughout, with hat and gloves to match
He rose and fell with the motion of his
horse, but held himself in position very
well. Fred wore a rough-looking suit of
brown that set off his compact figure very
well. He looked the most at home in the
saddle of any of the boys. "They rarely
remain in the park longer than hulf an
hour," said the policeman. "I suppose
they are compelled to work bard to keep
their millions together."
The ladies in the Vanderbilt family oc
casionally join the male members on their
early morning ride, but as a rule do not
come out until later in the day. Mrs. Cor
nelius and Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt are
quite expert riders.?New York World.
The Contents of a Sailor's Chest.
"What is a sailor's kit for a long voy
age?" repeated a weather beaten old tar
recently, as he munched a piece of old
navy and gazed respectively into his glass
of grog in a Front street saloon. "Why,
as for that matter, no two sailors are
alike. One will go to sea with a nice out
lit of long togs for nights ashore and a sea
rig large enough to start a second hand
clothing store ou South street; and an
other will fire all his boodle away in a
night's jollification, and away to sea the
next day for a voyage around the Horn
with the suit he stands in and. a ragged
suit of oilskins that have weathered both
capes and the storms of three seasons."
"Well, take the average sailor, and give
me an inventory of the contents of his

headlong overboard by the parting of a

by the angry waves before any effort could
be made to save him. As is the custom,
hi3 chest was brought aft, opened, and an
inventory made of his effects, that might
be forwarded to his friends. In addition
to the heavy clothes for bad weather and
the light ones for uses under sunny skies,
were found many little presents which the
dead man had picked up and was taking
to his friends at home. . There were dress
patterns of rich China silks, pretty toilet
boxes, and bits of fancy carving. Each
was wrapped up and the address of the in
, tended recipient written upon it. From
letters which were found In the till of
Jack's chest we learned that he hailed
from an inland town of Pennsylvania, and
the gifts were intended for a mother and
sisters there who will wait long for the re
turn of their sailor boy."?New York Mail
Dissipated Women ou the Stago.
There are women on the stage who
drink like men. There aro also some who
swear like men. Of the swearing women
it is unnecessary to speak. One night the
leading lady, who no longer occupies the
position, appeared at a theatre famed for
its fine audiences in such a state that she
could scarcely move across the stage. Tho
habitues of the cafe saw instantly that she
had been drinking brandy. When she
opened her mouth to speak the remainder
of the audieuce saw that she had been
drinking something. The fashionable
gathering murmured. The actress knew
that her weakness was discovered. She
was a strong woman physically, and she
summoned all her powers to .throw off
the influence that oppressed her. People
who knew her state said she never acted
so well as on that night. Her acting de
ceived her auditors. They were led by it
to disbelieve what they had seen, and she
retained her popularity. Some time she
will probably find herself in the same po
sition as Mr. Booth.?Brooklyn Union.

HOW A COW WAS MURDERED
At an Uptown Abattoir?Scene Witnessed
by a TendVr-Kearted Reporter.
There were nix or eight meek-looking
brown cows or bullocks in a pen when we
got into the slaughter-house of the Butch
er's Hide and Melting association the
other afternoon. In the corner of the pen
a little pile of hoofs and feet of animals
lay, just where they had been thrown. A
man with the sleeves of his check shirt
rolled above his elbows stood for a mo
ment in an open doorway looking at the
animals. His arms were white where
they were exposed, except for little bands
of crimson that streaked them in criss
cross lines and dripped down upon his rub
ber apron. His trousers were tucked into
his high boots, and the little wrinkles in
the legs held tho prettiest crimson fluid
imaginable?not the dark red we are ac
customed to see in blood?but a beautiful
Magenta color. In a little haversack
slung across his shoulder he carried an as
sortment of knives, and his right hand
held a blade that looked big as a sword.
He came out, patted a young cow on the
back with one hand in a friendly way, and
with the other snapped a clamp attached
to a rope on her hind leg. The rope, ran
around a pulley-wheel, and another man
inside began to puU the animal slowly
towards the open door. The victim
struggled a little, fell on its knees and
turned its eyes appealingly to its compan
ions. Did you ever notice how deep and
soft and brown a cow's eyes are? The
Persian poets, when they rave about their
loves, always compare a lady's eyes to a
cow's. Well, this one turned to its com
panions, and as the rope, remorseless as
fate, pulled it toward the fatal door It
actuaUy cried. The tears ran over its eye
lids, making ' the pretty eyes softer and
deeper than ever. The butcher said, in a
business-bike tone, that it was an old trick
?they always did cry. A bi?lock that had
evidently made the long journey from the
west in company with the doomed one
came up and with a low moo put its
rough lips against the mouth of the other,
as if to say "good-bye," and then the cow
disappeared through the door.
There it hung by. its hind leg, pulled
clear of the floor. The big man with bare,
red-streaked arms, turned the brown
neck towards him. For a moment the
space between the head and shoulder was
brown like the rest of the body. There
came a swift gleam of the blade, and the
next minute a bright flash of red lighted
up and stained the dull color of the throat.
A long sigh from the victim, a patter of
blood on the floor, and the reporter
hurried out white in the face and clung to
an iron rail for support. He had seen men
killed, six or eight of them, and in every
way without emotion, but the common
slaughter of a cow with pretty eyes made
him feel queer somehow. Of course he
laughed at the weakness when the next
victim was strung up, but for the time it
was very real?F. A. Duneka in New
"Wales at Kothchild'u Table.
No longer than last week the prince of
Wales was invited to breakfast with the
Baron de Rothschild. The prince re

as good, as was served at his own table in
"Nothing astonishing in that," said
Mme. de Rothschild, smiling. "It was the
butcher of your royal highness who sent

"So it ought to be," replied the master
of the house, "since I telegraphed for the

A Surgeon in the Navy.
The position of surgeon in the navy ia
not an enviable one. The examination that
appRcants are required to undergo Is very
rigid, and as a rule physicians who are ca
pable of passing the ordeal can And fields
for their usefulness more congeiial to
their tastes and very profitable to them by
engaging In private practice. When a
physician obtains a position in the navy he
is assigned to the steerage, without rank,
and is given an ordinary salary. In tho
army it is the reverse. When a physician
joins that branch of the service he is com
missioned a second lieutenant and is paid
accordingly, and commands all the respect
the position is entitled to. Tho result is
that there are no vacancies in the army,,
while there are over 300 candidates for
positions. In tho navy there are fifteen
vacancies with no applications to nil them.
Claims of a Sanguine Aeronaut.
An Indiana aeronaut says that a balloon
can be made to carry an elephant as easily
as a mouse, 100 men as easily as one man.
IIo proposes to construct a cylinder-shaped
balloon 1?0 or 200 feet long, with which to
make captive and free ascents. He is a
believer in the theory that the north pole
may be reached by a balloon, and in no
other way. His plan for this project
would be to employ a screw, operated by
an engine to be carried in the ear. By
means of this screw the balloon's course
could be controlled, as already demon
strated by French experiments.?Chicago

squire one day, "I cxinhot understand how

"I will illustrate it," said the squire. "My

'Squire, I know that is pure milk, for I

thoroughly, strained it into the can, and no
body else has handled it' Now when I take
the stopper from the can out leaps a bull

than the man."

that his old colored gardener was still burn

the servant's department, Mr. Hunter came
upon Uncle Eli solemnly playing on his

lamp which had been forbidden. Pro
voked at the old man's obstinacy, Mr.
