A well-known sporting iiinn was toll?
ing a group of friends rocoeMy of lllO
strange people lib bail encountered lato
at night in tho stroots whon the ordin?
ary routine of lifo seems to ho reversed.
"Tho strangest of thorn till," said ho,
"'was littlo Hilly Sprogue. billy was
tbo funniest littlo ehaj) you over saw.
Uo weighed not less than two hundred
pounds, al I hough ho was scarcely Ilvo
feet high. Literally, be was almost as
broad as lie was long. His face.cortain
ly was wider than its length. The most
singular effect was caused by tin' fact
that billy had not n single wisp of hair
on either his head or face not ovi u an
fyelash. or e\ohrow. lie \\:is awfully
sensitive about his not having any hair,
but couldn't-seem to gel used to wear
ing a wig. Ills pale was like an exag?
gerated billiard hall, and Hilly used to
?say the wig made him want to scratch [
tit all the time.
??When ho was about Lwonty-flveyears
old Hilly fell in love with a pretty girl
who worked in a big candy store in
Sixth avenue, and he straightway scr,
out to win hor. lie went, to the host
wig-maker in town and had a line brown
??urly wig made. It cost u heap of
money, but Hilly would have it. Ho
paid diligent court to the girl, who
toyed with him awhile and then sent
hi in about his business. Hilly look it
Rorcly to heart and began to drink
heavily. In a short lime he had spent
nil his money, and lost, his situation,
and was very much of a loafer. The
only valuable thing ho had left was his
-wig. Finally, he could not. got. along
without his liquor, and liquor In- could
not, got without money.
"One night, Hilly started a beautiful
?eherne for getting all tho ruin he want- 1
?d. doing into a saloon ho confidon- :
tiaUy told the bar-koopor that he had j
no money to pay for a drink, but- that if .
lie wero supplied ho would leave his j
wig as security for its payment. Tho !
wig was taken and Hilly got his drink. I
"No bar-keeper could have doubted that
"this was good security after seeing IUI- I
ly's bnld head, (ioing out, Hilly strolled
to another saloon in which ho told a sad i
tale of having had his wig stolen. His
shining scalp was tho host kind of evi?
dence thathu needed a wig.aml everybody
felt sorry for him, he looked so forlorn.
Tho hat went around and Hilly raised
about, three dollars Tor another wig, be?
sides being asked to drink twice. Re?
turning to the first saloon Hilly redeem- j
?)d his wig and went his way rejoicing.
"By selecting his basis of operations
carefully Hilly lived for two years on j
that wig?lived too well, in fact, for at i
the end of that, time; he died on the I
island from an attack of delirium tro
tuens." N. V. Tribune.

Dni's Hot Water Injure tli*- Teeth?
The question is often asked: Does hot
water drinking injure the enamel of the
tooth? This old notion regarding hot
drinks and hot foods is one of the argu?
ments brought up against drinking hot
water before meals for indigestion. Hut
actual experiment, proves that heat and
sold have no effect upon the enamel of
Ihn teeth. A dentist who wanted tomako
sure, subjected teeth which had been ex?
tracted to the notion of water much hot?
ter than if could be drank, and then
j plunged them into ice-water without af
I feeling the enamel at all. Dr. J. II.

FACTS ABOUT DIAMONDS.
Tliry Differ Among riirmselvct, us Mars
l)lfl>r in (.lory.
There are diamonds and diamonds.
To tho average, reader It stands as
above; white diamonds and t hose that
are olT color. Hut lo the miner, sorter,
dealer, cutter and connoisseur there aro
diamonds and diamonds, and again dia?
monds and diamonds almost inlinitiim.
Beginning with the variouseelors with
which these morsels of carbon are tint?
ed, i here are to be found on Stile at. the
shops of dealers in tllOSO goods the fol?
lowing vnrioties: White, yellow, brown,
blue, black, green and pink. The tirst
meiitioned, whito, are tho most plenti?
ful, and al the same lime noxl to the
highest priced sort, and are the kind re?
ferred to. :e. a rule, when diamonds nro
spoken of. Tho prices are graded, al I
else being equal, in the following man?
ner, thO first being tllO cheapest: Yel?
low, brown, pink ami blue, while, blank
The yellow diamond is to he had in
many shades, from the faintest tinge
from steel while to a bountifully bril?
liant canary color. There are also two
shades of yellow, which mighl be de?
nominated side shades or colors; tho
greenish yellow and the brownish yel?
low, both of w hich are very beautiful.
The. white diamond is hard to describe
in regard to its shadings, and experts,
when questioned regarding the matter,
say: "One stone ia whiter than an?
other only hy comparison, and the differ?
ence is to bo seen only by placing them
side hy side." The brown diamond is
next, in the Hat. ami is to ho found in
varying shades from a more haziness to
a walnut wood color. Tho blue diamond
is blue, and not, as some might imag?
ine, simply a blue white. It also runs a
scale of shades, although not dipping so
deep as .some. The pink-tinted diamond
is a very beautiful stone, and is to bo
had in shades from the palest to rose
pink. The green diamond is an aqua
green, and also is multiple in shades.
The black diamond is left to the last
for description of color, because it has a
peculiarity not obtained hy any of tho
others. The range of shades exhibited
by these stones is not so extensive as in
tho previously mentioned. The black
diamonds aro till opaque, tho blacker
the SlOllO the greater the opacity, and
Ibis is an oddity whichiioothor diamond
The rarity of the several varieties of
diamonds Is about as follows, tho most
plentiful coming first: Yellow, white,
brown, blue, black-, green and pink. Tho
yellow diamond is to ho had of much
larger size than any kind excepting the
white. It is softer than any hut tho
brown, with which it stands on a level
in that respect. There Is a peculiarity
to hi' met with among tho groon dia?
monds, which is suggested by the men?
tion .'>f the yellow stone, und is Ibis:
