cat. Thl'\ ac:'ci.rd that each of the
tour ahlluld own a lparticular leg of
the tat. and c( h aiorned with beads
and otheir nr::',,,nelt: the leg thus ap
portione-l to him. The cat, by an
naee,;,lent, irk-lfred one of its legs. The
owner of that zuembier wound about it
a rag soaked in oil. The cat, going
too near the fire, net the rag on fire,
an-l being in great pain, rushed in
among the cotton Iales where Ath 1
was accustomed to hunt rats. The
cotton thereiv took fire and was
burned. It was a tt:al lass. The three
other p:rt;iers brought an action to
recn'over the value of the cotton against
the fourth partner who owned the
particular leg cf the cat. The judge
examined the cast- and decided thus:
"The leg that had the oil-rag on it
was hurt; the cat could not use that
leg-in fact. it held up that leg and
ran with the other' three legs. The
three unhurt legs therefore earried
the fire to the cotton, andl are alone
culpable. The injured leg is not to
blame. The three partners who owned
the three legs with which the cat ran
to the cotton will pay the whole value
of the bales to the partner who was
proprietor of the injured leg."-La.
Nothing in the Paper.
The following spic.y chapter, of the
subject of newspapers, we clip from
an exchange, eiicited, no doubt, by t
the too freqluent remarks of the in- 1
different reader, after perusing the
news of the day, that "there's nothing
in the paper:"
And mon are always grumbling
about their papers, :and insinuating I
how much better they could do it.
They talk as flippantly about "fine
articles" on every imaginable subject
as if they could effect such a change. I
Let some of tles over-running phi
losophers try it for one hundred and
fifty days in sue,:ossion.
And then they think it is nothing
to select for a newspaper; you have i
merely to run the sciTsors through a
half dozen exchanges, and you have a
got matter enough. Now, this is the
most important and the most difficult
department to fill on a newspaper.
Very few men have the slightest idea
how to do the werk. It requires a
thorough newspaper man, who knows
the public appetite well, who knows
what is going on in the world, who
knows how to write and pack a col
umn into a dozen lines.
Men who skim a newspaper and
toss it aside, little reflect how much
brains and toil have been expended
in serving up the meal. Busy heads
aed busy hands have been toiling all
day to gather and prepare those
viands, and some vast building has
been lit from cellar to garrett, all
night, to get the paper ready for the
newsboy by crack of day.
"'Nothing in the paper!" N'othing

To Prevent Expresa Robberies.
The railroad companies think they
have hit upon a plan to prevent ex
press robberies, and one which is so
simple the wonder is that it was not
thought of before. All the cars are
being supplied with stationary safes
with combination locks, the combina
tion of which is unknown to the mes
senger. When money is shipped a
representative of the company will go
to the train, deposit the money or
raluables, check it with the messenger
and secure the safe. When the train
reaches another point a representa
tive acquainted with the combination
visits the car and ascertoins from the
messenger if there are any valuables
in the safe for that point, and so on.
So, if a ear is attacked by robbers
they can only get into the safe by
blowing it open and thus giving the
alarm, as the messenger himself
knows nothing of the combination.
