A TALE OF A SHIRT.
The Length or Time ilio Great Iowa
Apropos of General Sherman's visit to
Denver, a story is told of the Generic's
experience with Henry Clay Dean. The
two had been friends for years, and when
Sherman became General and Dean
happened to bein Washington, the later,
naturally enough, felt a desire to renew
the old acquaintance.
He called at Sherman's house and was
received with open arms. They talked
over old times, and nothing would do
but Dean must stay to dinner.
" But, General," remonstrated Mrs.
Sherman in her husband's ear, " I can't
have such a dirty looking man at my
table ; can't you spruce him up a little?"
The General said lie'd fix thpt, and so
at an opportune moment he hustled Mr.
Dean up stairs, ransacked a bureau, and
produced a clean shirt for him to put on.
Mrs. Sherman was mollified, aud the
dinner was really a charming affair, for
there is no more delightful, entertaining
and instructive conversationalist than
Henry Clay Dean.
One year after this event General
Sherman was at the Lindell Hotel, St.
Louis, with his family. A card was
brought up bearing Henry Clay Dean's
Mrs. Sherman was much pleased,
"He is such a charming talker, we
must have him to dinner. Only you
must see that he looks presentable."
These were madam's words to the
So Sherman welcomed Dean, and,
just before going to dinner, slipped him
into a side room and gave him a clean
shirt to wear. Dean doffed his coat and
vest, and, after several desperate efforts,
succeeded in divesting himself of the
shirt he had on a soiled, grimy, black
thing, that looked as if it had seen long
and hard service. Then they all went
down to dinner, and Mr. Dean was more
charming than ever, and Mr. Sherman
was in ecstacies.
The next day, as Mrs. Sherman was
getting her husband's duds and clothes
together, preparatory to packing them
for the onward march, she gave a sort
of a wild, hunted scream.
"What is it, my dear," called the
General from the next room.
"Just come in here for a minute,"
replied Mrs. Sherman, between faint
The General went in. There stood
Mrs. Sherman holding in her left hand
the begrimed shirt Henry Clay Dean
had left. With her right hand she
pointed to certain initials on the lower
edge of the bosom. The initials read
"W. S. T."
It was the identical shirt General
Sherman had loaned Henry Clay Dean
in Washington twelve months before !

Insect Life in Brazil. -
Mr. Ernest Morris, the young traveler
and naturalist, who has just returned
from Brazil, repeats the general observation
of explorers that the exuberance of
insect life is the principal obstacle to
the enjoyment of a sojourn in that part
of the world. Cockroaches swarm in
every house despite the inroads of an
army of spiders which sally forth from
every chink to prey upon them, scorpions
are intrusive and dangerous ; a small red
insect called the " mecuim " is an intolerable
annoyance; at certain hours of
the day the air is black with flies and
mosquitoes, and ants are a universal
plague. To baffle these last-named foes
of peace Mr. Morris vas obliged to
keep his entire collections on hanging
shelves, the cords of which were soaked
in the oil of copaiba. "The most destructive
ant in Brazil," says Mr. Morris,
"is the sanba. It will strip trees of
their folage m a single night, and in
many places orange trees can not be
grown for this reason. The tocandeira
is a very small ant, the bite of which is
poisonous and makes a painful sore. I
was once rendered unable to work for a
week from a bite received from one of
these ants. Some species travel in large
bodies, marching in a straight line, and
never turning to the right or left. If a
house lies in the track of one of-these
marching bodies, unless they are completely
exterminated they pass through.
Nothing will be injured, but every crack
and cranny will be explored, and not a
cockroach or spider will survive the
visitation. They are, therefore, regarded
as friends, and their advent is
welcomed. Go where you will in Brazil,
you will meet ants. You live, sleep,
and eat with them and eat them, too."
"Now," said the Justice to the witness,
"you will please tell precisely
how it happened." "Yes, sir; I'll try.
The prisoner and that man were eating
dinner at the same table and they got to
quarreling, when the prisoner just up
with a dab of Irish mashed potatoes and
hit that other man on the .head with it."
"Do you, sir," said the Justice sternly,
"pretend to 'tell the Court that a dab of
mashed potatoes, even when thrown with
the greatest violence, can make a gdsli
five inches long 'otf a man's head and
knock him senseless ? If you trifle with
the Court you will ba 'locked up;'V
