A Man to TIo To.
Detroit Free Press.
He was passing the City Hall on the
Michigan avenue side at 2 o'clock
afternoon, when he struck an icy spot.
TJsiial results :
The ice slipped under him towards
"Woodward avenue, and he slipped ahead
towards Griswold street.
It has heen figured that only one man
in 3,250,807 can save himself under such
He clawed he wobbled he went down.
Hat to the right cane to the left legs
all over pavement unhurt.
Usual number of boys around usual
yells of delight, together with at least fifty
sarcastic inquries as to whether he intended
to have his photograph taken then, or
wait till some dark night.
A few feet away a lone man stood lending
against a post. His ears began to
work, his face grew red, and it was plain
that he wanted to yell right out. But
something restrained him. The victim
arose, picked up his hat and cane, and
with a benign expression on his face walked
up to the man at the post and said :
"Mr. Brown, did you see me tumble?"
"And you want to laugh ?"
"Yes, you do I Don't lie about it, for
I've been 'right there myself! Yon want
to laugh, and yet you know that I hold a
mortgage on your" house and lot and can
foreclose. Now, then, I'll extend the time
a full year, and you go ahead and laugh
all you want io f"
"But, sir ."
" Sliut up ! Laugh, sir laugh ! Good
The citizen walked away with a limp,
gazing straight before him, and the man at
the post let go and laughed until a policeman
came along and rubbed snow on the
back of his neck.
That's the kind of people there are in
Detroit. They don't slip up and claw
around and take a drop without expecting
to make the world brighter and better
for some poor mortal.
Dot Ish all Humbug.
Prof. Zweibeer is a rather dissipated old
man, who gives lessons on the flute for a
living.' Gill ooly, who feels a kindly interest
in the old man, took him aside and
said to him :
" Professor, if you were to quit drinking
and keep BobeK you would be engac:ed
to give lessons in some of the first familes
of Austin and make a good deal of
11 Dot ish all humbug," said the old man,
indignantly. " I give lessons so 1 can get
drunk, and now you vants me to keep sober
so I can give lessons. Dot is all humbug."
The completion of the Elizabethtown,
Lexington and Big Sandy railroad has developed
a large mining interest throughout
Carter county. Four mines are being operated
near Mt. Savage Furnace, and are
turning out an excellent quality of coal.
Good cannel coal is being mined on Little
Sinking creek, seven miles south of Grayson.
A Remaiiwiblo Career.
A remarkable career was that of the
Hon. John Tod, who died recently at
Victoria, B. C, aged n years.
n 1807 lid entered the service of the
Hudson's Bay Company, and within a
few years had almost every portion
pi jlhe vast territory from Hudson's
Bay to the Columbia Kiver He visit-ell
Montreal in 1812, and Astoria, Ore.,
in 18 IS. Afterward in the Peace River
country he spent nine years without
heaving his mother tongue or seeing the
face or a wlvto person. Forty years
ago ho wjis in charge of old Fort
and one day, when almost alone,
was surprised b a large party of
the fqrt for the
ofiphiidor, and, perhaps, murder.
