the Judge of Hanover
County speaks.
Tim. Howard suffered for three years
with lung and throat troubles, and last
spring was thought by his neighbors to
be dying. I heard of his condition and
gave him A. B. C. Tonic. Its effect was
magical. In a very short time he was
able to leave his bed, and now regards
himself a well man. Cthers in this
vicinity have taken the " Tonic " with
pronounced benefit.

A BOON TO GRUMBLERS.
They Could Drop a Nlclccl in the- Slot and
Got Kicked Soundly.
"I have a scheme."' said a stock
speculator the other day, "for making
a heap of money. For years and years
I've heard men complain dow n hero
and declare that they ought to be kick?
ed. I don't know how many hundreds
of times, when I've been standing;
near a ticker, I've seen a man drop the
tape and exclaim, angrily, 'I'm an
idiot?I ought to be kicked;'or.per?
haps ho would announce his intention
to kick himself full of holes. Unfor?
tunately?or fortunately?Iiis friends
don't feel like accommodating him,
and as to the other plan nature has
rohibited that My plan is to have
uilt a number of lay figures, with
interior mechanical arrangements,
which would put a wooden Toot into
action upon the dropping of a nickel
into the slot. They could be placed
in convenient localities.
"Thus these grumblers could gratify
their wishes to be kicked. The man
who bought stocks and lost his money
when he knew lie ought to have sold
?and their number is legion?could
go to one of the figures, drop a nickel
in the slot, and get kicked. If one
kick didn't satisfy him he could iuvest
another nickel and get another kick.
The worst grumbler in the street could
gratify himself by the outlay of fifty
cents. It would be a boon to the man
who 'had a straight tip and didn't take
it.'and to the man who "knew Kala
uiazoo preferred was going up, but
didn't buy it.' If all these fellows
down here who are continually talking
about kicking themselves would put
their threats into practical form a com?
pany formed for the manufacture of
the machines would grow rich in no
time."'
"Yes," said another speculator,
"that is a good idea. It would pro
vent a repetition, perhaps, of an un?
fortunate occurrence which I recently
witnessed. One of my friends, ordi?
narily a very peaceable man. lost sev?
eral thousand dollars by the rapid de?
cline of a certain stock. He declared
that he had bought it against Ids judg?
ment. ? He was so upset that he flew
out of the broker's office in a terrible
frame of mind. On the street ho
looked around for some way to ;get
even.' He saw an innocent man hav?
ing his boots polished. He rushed up
to him. kicked tiie bootblack's box into
the middle of the street, and gave the
gentleman a sounding smack on the
cheek.
'* 'Confound you.' he said, 'you're
al ways getting your boots blacked.' '

.Sonu> Pretty Compliments.
When the great Duke of Welling?
ton said "ho always slept well when
Stapleton Cotton was on guard," he
paid a sterling compliment which must
nave gratified that officer?if he heard
it?as much as a promotion in rank
would have don?.
A little absurdity about a compli?
ment often gives it 'point. A Spanish
lover is reported to have said to his
mistress: "Lend me your eyes; I want
to-night to kill a man.''
Mrs. Moore, the wife of the poet,
was noted for her benevolence to the
poor in the vicinity of their country
residence. On one occasion a guest
remarked: "I take it for granted that
no one is dving in our neighborhood!
or we should not be favored with Mrs.
Moore's company."
Not long ago, when a brief matri?
monial engagement was broken otF, a
near relation of the gentleman, one
who fully appreciated tin- high quali?
ties of her from whom the sometime
lover was sundered, said to the young
ladv: "You have only lost an ideal;
he lias lost a reality." A sweet com?
pliment this, under the circumstances.

A Metal Tli?t Melts Easily.
A metal that will melt at such alow
temperature as 1 Do dogs, is certainly a
curiosity, but John E. White, of Syra?
cuse, N. Y.. has succeeded in producing
it. It is an alloy composed of lead,
till, bismuth and cadmium, and in
weight, hardness and color resembles
type metal. So easily does it melt that
it you place it on a comparatively cool
part of the stove with a piece of paper
under it. it will melt without the pa?
per being scorched. Another peculi?
arity about it is that it will not retain
heat, and becomes cold the moment it
melts. It is used in the manufacture
of the little automatic fire alarms for
hotels. They give an electric alarm
when the metal melts owing to the
rising of the temperature by fire.?

KING LEAH ONCE MORE.
How u THwi Who Divided Ills Property
Among Hid Children Macngcd to Live.
The rocentdcath of a Detroit pionocr
came very near being followed by the
skinning and flailing of the attorney
who had faithfully served him for
years.
As a result of early investments and
fortuitous circumstances the old man
had accumulated a handsome fortune.
His wife died and three daughters
were left as the widower's solace. In
the course of timo the young ladies,
bright and handsome, were all married
off, and did well.
They each liked 10 entertain "pa,"
and rather vied with each other in so
curing his presence at their respective
hearthstones. At length one of the
girls suggested the propriety of pa's
dividing Iiis fortune among his chil?
dren. They were to receive it anyhow,
pa could always have a good home
among them, and their husbands
might as well have the aid of his
money in carrying on business.
Pa acquiesced, had his lawyer split
his wealth into three parts, and each
child received her just proportion.
Then things wero different The old
man's welcome was not as warm as
formerly - neither were his meals, lie
overheard one daughter complaining
that she had been keeping pa for about
three months, and she thought it linn;
one of the others should assume the
burden.
The old gentleman hadn't lost his
shrewdness und saw what was coining.
He called on his lawyer, whose ail vice
was to keep quiet and work a scheme.
"If i send any one to you, take up
with what he may propose and decline
to discuss the affair with your chil?
dren."
.Next day the father was hugging a
dismal fire and inwardly suffering
from the cold looks about him. There
was a caller announced to see him.
The man went right to business.
"Mr. -, 1 want to borrow some
money."
J'a saw the point and asked: "How
much V
"Three thousand."
"What security i"
"First mortgage oil city real estate."
"What interest.'''
"Seven per cent"
"If my lawyer approves of the seen
rity have him fix up the papers and
make a check. I'll come down this af?
ternoon and sign it."
Next day another borrower called,
went through the same talk, and ne?
gotiated a loan for $5,000.
The daughters had learned all by
judicious eavesdropping and the clouds
which darkened the old man's skies
gave way to a burst of sunshine. The
best was not good enough for him.
Each family was now as anxious to
have him as it had been to get rid of
him. The best rooms, the best seat by
the fireside ami the daily caresses of
his three girls came to Iiis daily lot.
So it was at the time of Iiis death.
After tiie funeral the lawyer was
seen. From him it was learned that
pa hadn't left a cent. Then there was
a pawing of the air and chain shot de?
nunciations from the daughters, while
the sons-in-law talked seriously of mop?
ping the ground with the faithful at?
torney. Put the lawyer had made tho
old age of his client a pleasant one and

Babies f??r Crocodile Butt.
"Babies wanted for crocodile bait.
Will be returned alive."says a Cevlon
paper. If newspapers abounded in
Ceylon as much as crocodiles do. ad?
vertisements worded like the foregoing
would be common in their want col?
umns.
As it is the English crocodile hunter
has to secure his baby by personal so?
licitation. He is often successful, for
Ceylon parents, as a rule, have un?
bounded confidence in the hunters and
will rent their babies out to be used as
crocodile bait for a small considera?
tion. Ceylon crocodiles suffer greatly
from ennui; they prefer to lie quite
still, soothed by the sun's glittering
rays and while away their lazy lives
in meditation.
But when a dark brown infant with
curling toes sits on a bank and blinks
at them, they throw off their cloak of
laziness and make their preparations
for a delicate morsel of Ceylonese hu?
manity. When the crocodile gets
about half way up the bank, the hun?
ter, concealed behind some reeds, opens
re, and the hungry crocodile has his
appetite and life taken away at thei
same time, the baby being brought
home safely to its loving mamma.?

Seminole Hlorals,
Should a Seinfiiole maiden unwisely
bestow her atlwuions upon any man
outsider of the tribe, her life would be
for',?ted. So certain of this are they
t.fi$.?nio one of the women under 50
.. ears of age will speak to a white man,
save in the presence of her male rela?
tives, and then as curtly as possible.
She will, in fact, hardly look at him,;
so fearful is she of arousing suspicion,
and in consequence of this law there
are no half breeds among the Florida
Seminoles.
So jealous are these Indians of the
purity of their blood that I can learn
of but one family among them in
which there is any admixture. In this
case the man took as his wife a comely
negro woman who was captured by the
Indians during the Seminole war; but
their children are so far from being re?
garded as equals by other members of
the tribe that -no full blooded Indian
will break bread with them. There
are two young men in this family, and
should a young full blood of their
own age visit their camp, he will eat
with the father, but the young half
breeds must wait until he is through.
The Seminole who lies to another has
his nose slit; while he who steals
from a fellow-tribe-man loses an ear.?

Persian Bribery.
A traveler in Persia relates the fol?
lowing incident: "I was on a visit to
a judge when n man was brought in
who stoutly denied the offense with
which he was charged. The beglerbeg
(judge) sent for a whip.
"I vow I am innocent," said the ac?
cused, as ho crossed his hands over
his breast, at the same time stretching
forward one of his fingers. The min?
ion of justice stood ready to strike at a
signal from the judge, who fixed his
eyes on the breast of the prisoner and
exclaimed:
"You are guilty I"
"By thy venerable head, I vow I am
not guilty," protested the accused,
now raising two liugers.
This process was continued until he
at last stretched out live lingers on
each hand, when the beglerbeg re?
marked:
"Good, let him go; he is iuuocent."
I learned afterward that by raising
his finger the prisoner meant the judge
to understand that he offered one to
mau (about ten shillings) for his re?
lease, and had been compelled to raise
tho amount by successive bids to ten
tomans (?5) in order to satisfy the de?
mands, of the Persian justice.- 3?

One hundred dollars will put this house
up in good shape, all shingled and paint?

and uses common boards for the sides

this sum. Hut we want a building

makes feeding quite easy.
Raising Turkeys.
Common hen turkeys crossed with a
good healthy bronze gobbler will pro?
duce good strong t urkeys. Each hen, ii
well cared for, will lay from thirty to
forty eggs. Don't set a. hen turkey on
over sixteen eggs. When the young ones
are hatched, don't givo them any food
for at least one day. Feed the hen wh< >k
com and keep her on her nest. When
you commence feeding the young ones,
feed them very often?as often as every
hour will be all tho better. Make their
rations scant and often. The feed at
first should be coarse corn meal, to which
add a mixture of milk and raw eggs.
Aftex two or three days feed vegetables,
potatoes, onions and egg and milk cooked
together and thicken with/ ground oats
or shorts.
If you haveaour milk make ?'dutch
cheese" for them, putting in some pep?
per. Give them pure water, and a few
drops of tincture of iron in the water
will make them stronger. Never allow
them to get wet or chilled. Keep them
confined with the hen for at least a
week, then allow them out only on dry,
sunny days. When confined, arrange to
have a run for them. Their nature in?
clines them to bo more active than
chicles, her.ee cannot be so closely con?
fined. Always keep the- male away ?r< 'in
them as much as possible and especially
while the hens are sitting, as he will
most likely destroy the nest. ? Ohic

Hawthorne on Hug*.
Nathaniel Hawthorne's Uncle Man?
ning was a horticulturist, and in the
spring of IS32 was much troubled by
an insect which attacked his trees.
Just at this time there appeared in a
newspaper a minute description of the
insect, its origin, progress ami the best
method of exterminating it. Mr. Man?
ning was so pleased with the article
that he ordered several copies of the
paper for distribution among his hor?
ticultural friends. At this lime Haw?
thorne was a student at Bowdoin col?
lege, and happened to arrive home
just when his uncle was receiving the
paper, and commenting freely on the
article. Hawthorne said to a young
friend. "1 wrote that article." * "But
what do you know about bugs?" in?
quired his friend. "Nothing." was the
reply; "I wrote it to pass away an idle
hour, and it was entirely made up from
my imagination. Now, if Uncle Rob?

Some Cses or Artificial Cold.
It seems very probable that the day
is not far distant when brine, cooled
below the freezing point of water, will
be curried under the streets in pipes, as
steam is now, supplying from central
.stations a very convenient substitute
for ice in the domestic household. By
freezing in our own houses water
which has been previously boiled, it
will then ho possible for us to avoid
contagion from diseased germs con?
tained in ice gathered from impure
sources. Tin; maintenance of dwell?
ings at 70(legs. Fahrenheit throughout
the summer will then be as much a
matter of courso as the warming of a
modern house now is in winter.?

I umring the Babies.
One of the industries of New York
is the insurance of babies. The sum
paid usually is five cents a week on
each child. The system is productive
of good in so far that it assures very
poor people against being put to ex?
tremes in the event of a death in the
family. On the other hand, the pos?
sible and even probable abuses are ob?
vious, for it gives heartless parents a
direct personal interest in the death of
one who is entirely at their mercy.?
Chicago Herald.
A Duke's Reverence.
In Russia it is customary for all lay?
men, the emperor himself included, to
show their outward respect for the
church by kissing the hands of its
ministers. On one occasion it is re?
lated that a village priest, receiving a
grand duke at his church door, and
having no experience of such exalted
personages, hesitated to.offer him his
hand; the grand duke, getting impa?
tient, exclaimed: ".Stretch out your
paw. you fool.'"?San Francisco Argo?

Children's Food.
It never seems to occur to an Indian
that there is anything that we should
regard as children's food. Little chil?
dren are seen to cat pieces of meat be?
fore thev have teeth. Some live and
some die* but the mortality is large.?
Philadelphia Ledger.
Jn Paris there is a skating rink
formed of real ice on a circular basin
of water artificially cooled by pipes
containing ammonia gas.

gjA shooting affray occurred Thurs?
day afternoon near Lawyers' roads.in
Campbell count}', in which a negro
man shot a white man named Low.
Several railroad hands, who saw the
shooting, gave chase after the negro,
and he shot several times at them and
made bis escape.
Several Strempts have recently been
made to burn the residence of W. A.
White, in Campbell county. The
first attempt was made by settinR
fire to the woods adjacent to his res?
idence, and the next night the in?
mates were aroused by smoke, and on
investigating found a'large bundle ol
rags saturated with coal oil, under
the house burning fiercely.
A CHILD*KILLED.
