Notwithstanding the very inclement
weathsr, a good audience
heard the inimitable poet laureate of
Kentucky at College Hall Friday
night. Major Stanton's poems are
models in all that is beautiful in
language and noble in sentiment.
The most intense interest was mani
fested throughout the reading, and
the Major responded gracefully and
happily to the repeated encores.
The people of Hartford will hope tor
another opportunity to hear the gifted
Kentuckian, and we understand
the Societies and Faculty of tho
College will have him return in the
spring. He will ever havo a royal
welcome among us.
A aitEATmany people think, or
seem to think, that a rich man a
millionaire is a soulless human, with
no feelings whatever in common with
his fellowman. In short, a man who
hates all humanity and whom all humanity
sheuld hate as a common enemy
but a glance at the acts ot philanthropy
of many of our rich citizens
will convince any one but an ignoramus
filled with prejudice that theso
men not only possess the same brotherly
love, but that for tbo great cause
of education and morality they are
willing to give of their means. Phil.

The New York Frets says: Rev.
Henry Preserved Smith, having been
convicted of heresy before tho Cincinnati
Presbytery, has been suspended

as he renounces his heretical opinions.
Dr. Smith may bo thankful that tho
spirit of the ago has made impossible
the penalties with which offenses like
his were punished in the earlier times.
Nowadays heretics aro suspended
from the pulpit, whoreas in tho oldon
times they were frequently suspended
from the scaffold.

Dick Tate wasn't a circumstanco

tho Legislature, not only gets its

The town of Greenwich, Conn,,
has just decided to settlo a number of
claims which have been pending
nearly thirty years. In 1863. whon
volunteers for tho armies in tho field
were very few, tho town agreed to
pay 800. to each man from that town
giving his servicos to the country.
On one pretext or another payment
has been avoided and deferred by tho
town authorities until now. At a
town meeting Monday, it was voted
to pay the claims in full. This means
an expenditure of about 815,000.
Dec. 20. Our town is still improving.

INVENTOR OF THE BAQQAGE CHECK.'
A Device That Mails IU War napldly to
Tho alleged origin of tho decidedly
useful baggago checks has bcu told
by Mr. D. Morrell, of Union City,
Mich., as follows:
John Pahnor, of my town, is tho
Inventor of tho baggago checking
Bystcm. I will toll you his story as
ho told it to mo. John Palmor was
born in England somo eighty-two
years ago, nnd camo to tho United
States in 1829, and to Union City in
1835. In thoso early days ho was in
great domand, for his violin enlivened
many and many a winter night.
Ono great annoyance ho experienced
was tho constant trouble peoplo had
in finding their coats, hats, wraps,
obos, etc., after tho party broko up.
Well, it was announced that thoro
was to bo a big danco at Burlington
on Thanksgiving evening about I860,
and Mr. Palmor was to havo chargo
of tho music. Ho know that thoro
would bo a terriblo crowd there, and
that thore would bo lots of trouble
with tho clothing, and ho went to
work to doviso a plan to obviato it
Well, after studying on it for a
long timo ho hod solved tho mystery.
Ho got out eight cards and
marked them in pairs 1 1, S 2, 8 8,
4 4 and ono of the greatest blessings
to tho business world was born.
Now for the first test Ho had four
children, ho took their shoes and
Btockings, tied each up by them-solves,
put taa 1, 2, 3, 4, on each lot
and put them away. Whon tho
children got up thoy inquired for
their shoes. Ho gavo each ono tho
check that corresponded with tho
check on their shoes, and told them
to go into tho other room and pick
out their own by comparing tho
numbers. Each child got its own.
Now for a trial on a larger scale.
Ho prepared a lot of checks in tho
samo way for tho guests at tho party.
About tho first to arrlvowero tho
four railroad men from Marshall.
Throo took their checks; ono would
not have tho tiling and throw it on
tho floor. When they called for their
clothes thoy had forgotten all about
tho checks and demanded their
clothes. Mr. Palmor asked thorn for
their checks. After hunting some
time tho three produced thoir checks
and at onco received thoir goods.
Thoy had to identify tho goods for
the fourth man.
Shortly after that thoro was another
party at Burlington, and among
tho first to nrrivo wero six railroad
mon from Marshall, including tho
first four. Thoy said thoy wanted
their things checked tho samo as before.
They watched tho plan tho
whole evening, and went away convinced
that they had found a grand
idea. Insido of threo months it was
adopted by tho railroads of tho United
States. Chicago Tribune.
IIow a lll.hop Received Treipauer.
Tho bishop of Exeter it scorns was
constantly annoyed by tho intrusion
of strangers into his grounds, and
ho had put up very stringent notices
forbidding trespassers. Ono morning
ho was walking along in a meditative
mood when suddenly two ladies
broko through tho shrubs and
stood awkwardly enough confronting
him. They stammered out somo
excuse, saying they did not know
they wero in private grounds.
His lordship mado them a profound
bow, pointed to tho printed notice,
adding, "But perhaps you do not
read; however; as you seem to havo
no scruples, pray go on, go along tho
path's, into tho flower garden, across
tho lawn, enter tho house, visit tho
drawing room, dining room and
study, but let mo recommend you not
to penetrate into tho bedrooms at
this early hour, as tho housemaids
may not havo dono their work." Tho

The Talne of Great Tcl.tcopes.
I should liko to call attention to tho
fact that tho history of tho great telescopes

which wo wed to hear ropeated overy

theso two great telescopes (not to
2eak of many others) has
shown their great superiority
over less powerful instruments in
every field of astronomy, in tho observations
of planets, nebula;, stars,
comets, satellites, in spectroscopy,
and also in thoso departments of
astronomical photography for which
they aro adapted.
Smaller instruments havo their appropriate

To his friends Tennyson's door and

testimony to this effect is given by
Theodoro Watts, who says: "What

entirely mythical. Ho was tho most

indeed for him to part from a friend
at his hall door or at tho railway station
without urging him to return as
soon as possible, and generally with
tho words, 'Como whenever you liko.'
