WHAT A VOMAX EATS AND DKIisK.
It is Often Something That Would Make
an Ostrtcb Pale.
(From the New York Times.)
"The ordinary woman must have a
digestive apparatus similar to that sup
posed to be enjoyed by the ostrich," wah
the suggestive comment made yesterday
by the proprietor of a fashionable restau
ant in the shopping district up-town.
He was checking off the day's orders
as be spoke, and a Times reporter hear
ing the remark naturally followed it up.
"Why?" repeatedthe caterer. "Well,
rl just show you. All orders here are
written, you know, consequently the
ladies have put their testimony in black
and white. Here are some of their
liaehes: 'Bouillon and pistache ice
cream.' Fancy aman puttingthatcombi
nation in his stomach to nourish him for
a day's tramp. Here's another: 'Straw
berry short cake and a cup of chocolate;
that was the first course, followed by
cream matingue and a lemon ice.' l'd

bandwriting for a goblet of iced milk and
an extra porterhouse steak. Nothing
else. Enough tokillher? Ishould say so.
This extraordinary female relished a
chicken salad and a cap of tea; this one
reveled in fried Little Necks and pine
ple ice cream; and a third went from

If the latter, the young woman orders in
a lavish, generous way that is most
to my esonal taste; but
contents herself with amodest luncheon.
Thatis the time the husband is reckless,
and spring lamb, early strawberries, and
other expensive delicaies just about fill
the bill for him.

A Bad sign.
An old fellow who was running a saw
mill down in the southern part of Tea
nesseehad considerable trouble in getting
a man who understood the business of
sawyer. Finally, when the owner of the
mill had become wholly discouraged, a
respectible fellow came along and asked
for a situation. He showed a paper from
oneof theleading millmenin the country,
stating that the applicant was one of the
best of sawyers. He was engaged, and
when he had been at work about three
weeks the proprietor called him one
morning, and said:
"Mr Collier, you needn't go to work
"Are you going to shut down?"
"Yes, so fur ez you are consarned."
"What, you don't want me any longer?"
"Yes, that's it."
"Why haven't I been giving satisfac
"0 yas, so far ez yo' work goes."
"Then what is the matter?"
"Well, I have noticed that you put on
too many shirts."
"I don't understand you."
"Wall, you change yo shirts too often.
You have been workin' here now three
weeks, an' I notice that you put on a
clean shirt about every eight days."
"But, my gracious, is there anything
wrong in that?"
"To some folks thar mouten't be, bat
thar is to me. A feller came along here
once and changed his shirt every twelve
"Well," said the sawyer, "what else
did he do?"
"Run away and married my daughter,
that's what he done. Then thar come
along a feller that changed his shirt 'bout
ever' ten days. He run away with my
wife. Then another feller that changed
his shirt about ever' niae days run away
with my pocket-book containing fifteen
dollar3; so I find that the of'ner a man
changes his shirts the worse he is, an'
fearin' that you moat run away with my

Some Queer Verdicts.
The duties of those who serve on
coroner's juries do not ordinarily suggest
anything very funny, and yetsomelaugh
able results come from their work, par
ticularly if they do notexactly understand
what was expected of them.
An amusing story is told of a verdict
brought by a Western jury impaneled to
inquire into the cause of the death of a
man supposed to have committed suicide.
The verdict was brief and to the point,
the foreman saying simply:
"We, the jury, find the deceased guilty
Another jury exmined a great many
witnesses in the case of a man run over
by a railroad engine. The verdict was:
"We find him to havecometo his death
by being cut in twoby a railroad engine,
whereby he could not breathe, hence he
choked to death."
A coroner's jury in the backwoods of
Missouri heard all the evidence in the
case of a man killed by a runaway team,
and brought in the following verdict:
"The jury Ends the deceased to have
come to his death at the hands of a run
away team, the horses therefore being
blameless, they being frightened by a
it is told of an old German that he sat
stolidly and stupidly on a coroner's jury
and listened to all the evidence, after
which he walked over toward the corpse
with some degree of curiosity. Lifting
the cloth, he started back, turned to the
other rmenin amazement and affright,

A jury in a Missouri rural community
deliberated three hours over the corpse
of a woman burned by the explosion of
a kerosene lamp. The following verdict
was then announced in writing:

A man supposed to be a tramp was
found dead 'nthe woods out West. A
jury inquired into the canus of his death,
and reported as follows.
"The jury does not find that the dead

the opinion that he died simply because

Society's Latest Toy.
"What is the bandurria?" was asked of
a well-known musical authority to-day.
"Well," he answered, "the name is of
Italian origin, and not Spanish, as is
gnrlysuppse. The correct name
for this iittle instrument is the baudora,
or in Spanish, again, the bandolon. It
is of the same family as the mandolin,
which it is destained to succeed as the
favorite musical instrument among
-oie people. Here and there names
were 'ved from the East, where inthe
heydey of the ceaiasthey becamne
generally used to accompany the voice
and support the recitals of improvisatore
as well as solo performances. Although
'Panduro' appeare in the Greek, it is not
a true Greek instrument, but an exotic.
Pythagoras, writing about the Red Sea,
states that the Troglodytes made the
Pandoura of daphne or laurel, which
grer near the seashore. The idea of
tension would seem to be inherent in the
first syllable of names of the bandora or
tamboura family, preserving in each in
stance so remarkable an identity. The
large Turkish tamboura has a circular
body, the open strings producing four
tones; it has thirt-five frets of thin cat
gut bound around the neck and disposed1
for the intervals, smaller than half tones,
belonging to the Arabic scale."
The banidurria has bounded in popu- 1
larity along the Pacific Coast. In San
Francisco it has developed as a fashion

The Oldest Tree on Earth.
The Timber Trades' Journal is credited
with a statement of this effeet4: The "Bo"
tree, inthe city of Amarapoorsa, Burnmah,
is the oldest on earth. It was planted
288 B. C.,sandia accordingly 2,176 years
old. Its great age is proved by historic,
documents, according to Sir Jam a Em
merson Tennet. who says: "To it kings
have dedicated their dominions in testi

relined at Urumela when he underwent<

A Man Proud of His naby.
There was a baby on board the train

I was a baby with a big B.
Tae baby had its mother along.

The baby was very good for nine

The baby's papa then seized the baby,

The baby's mamma evidently placed
so confidence in the threat of the baby's
papa. She leaned back with a sigh of
relief and ate a banana.
But there was a desperate, dangerous
light in papa's eyes, as he picked his
way between jerks of the car.
He was gone about five minutes. He
returned alone. The desperate light
was gone from his eyes and he looked

She detected the guilty look he

And she remembered his threat.

He certainly looked guilty. The pas
sengers gathered around to prevent the
escape of the monster-the man who
threw his first born from a rapidly
moving railway car.
"Oh, John Henry," shrieked the po r
mother, "where is my baby?"
This time she waited for a reply, and
"I left it with a lady in the back seat,
who said she could quiet it."
Silence reigned for three minutes, and
nothing was heard but the mocking rails
of the track.
Then the baby broke loose again.
Curiosities of Magnetism.
Most well-informed people are doubt
less aware that the globe on which their
life is a great ball of magnetism, but
comparatively few have an adequate idea
of the influence this propety is continu
ally exerting on all sides, that many
common but inexplicable phenomena
can be traced directly to the source.
Statistics go to show that in the matter
of steel rails, as many as thirteen will be
come crystallized and break where they
go to make up e railroad track running
east and west, before one of those on a
north and south track is similarly affect
ed. This is entirely due to the magnet
ism generated by friction, and the fact
that the polarity of the magnetic current
is in the the former instance resisted in
the headlong rush of the train, whereas
in the latter case it is undisturbed.
Another strange effect of this peculiar
and occult force is that exerted on the
watches of trainmen. A timepiece car
ried by the conductor running a train
twenty miles an hour, however accurate
it may be, will, if the speed of the train
is increased to, say.fifty miles, become
useless until regulated. The magnetism
generated by the flight of a train may be
said to be in propotion to the speed with
which it is propelled, and the delicate
parts of a watch, numbering all the way
from four hundred to ten hundred pieces,
and peculiarly susceptible to this influ
ence by reason of hammering and polish
ing they have received, are not elow to
fell the effect.

Edmunds on the Political Situation.
In an elaborate article in the Forum
or July, Senator George F. Edmunds f
willreview the present political situation. a
3e points out the reasons why he is a
Etepublican, and in effect constructs a
)olitical platform for this campaign. He
goes over the history of the two parties,
ind shows that the two principal facts
n Democratic history are a tendency to :
ree trade and responsibility for the re
Dellion; and he recalls the criticism
nade of Republican government by the
Democrats four years ago-that Repub- f
lioan administrations had been corrupt; t
md the chief promise of the Democrats
-that there should be honest civil ser- l
vice reform. The Republican service
lias not been found corrupt, and practi
ially all Republican office have been re- I
placed by Democrats.
The principles and aims of the Re
publican party are thus put by Senator
(1) "The fullest defense and promo
tion at all times and in all places of
equal political and civil rights of citi
rens of the United States."
(2) "To aid in the increase of public
education by generous grants of money
from the common treasury."
(3) "To revise the details and correct i
the inequalities that may exist in the
custom laws upon the broad and funda- i
mental basis always of the constant pro- i
tection and encouragement of every 1
American production, every American I
industry and every American laborer."
(4) To diminish exuberant revenues I
by the reduction or abolition of internal
(5) "To suppress and eradicate the
debaucheries of the civil service."
The Harrison family can date their
history back to the middle of the seven
teenth century, when Major-General
John Harrison sat as one of the judges
in the trial of Charles I., and as such
signed the warrant that consigned that
unfortunate monarch to the gibbet.
Upon the accession of Charles II. to the
throne he in turn executed the judges
and executioners of his predecessor,
John Harrison among the rest, the execu
tions being signalized by their brutal
The descendants of two of these, the
Harrisons and the Okeys, contributed
largely to the great names which grace
the pages of Ohio's history. The imme
diate descendants of the unlucky Crom
wellian general hied themselves from
England to America, settling in Virginia.
The war of the revolution found Benja
min Harrison taking an active part in
the affairs of the times, and he became
one of the signers of the De -laration of
Independence, holding many important
official positions in addition to being
chcsen governor of the Old Dominion for
three successive terms.
The son of this Benjamin Harrison
was William Henry Harrison, the
ninth president of the United States,
whom the office-seekers killed in
the short space of thirty daye from the
date of his inauguration, The president's
son. John Scott Harrison, was the father
of General Ben Harrison.
He differed from the republican party
and from his son in politics. He was
elected as aKnownothing, and acted with
the Democrats; but he was an honorable
man, and pure as his ancestors. He
was respected by all his fellow-citizens,
and by one more than those who differed
with him politically.
