Waking up a Baby.
M. Quad in New York World.
One of the last passengers to enter
the ladies' cabin of a Hoboken ferry
boat the other afternoon was a middle-aged
woman tiptoeing along with
a sleeping baby in her arms. It was
plain to the initiated that
the baby had just fallen
asleep. It was well wrapped up and
its face covered with n. veil, and the
mother was tosiing it in her arms in
a soothing way as she came in. She
found a seat, backed up to it and sat
down with a:
"Sh! Sh! Sh! There! There! There!"
There were seventy-five people in
the cabin, and the minute that baby
entered all began to exchange looks.
Everybody must keep still or the
kid would wake up and howl. Of
the seventy-five at least 9eventy-four
were mad about it. Those furthest
uway muttered to each other that it
was always that way and that 10,000
New York babies could be pitched
over-board to the benefit of the coun
try at large, while those nearer by
choked back their inclination to
cough or sneeze and almost trembled
with apprehension. For five minutes
the cabin wasasqaiet as the grave.
Then an old woman let her umbrella
fall to the floor, and the way the
others looked at her was enough to
shorten her life by five year.
"Great scots,but look there!" was the
mental exclamation of every passen
ger as the sleeping babe was sudden'
lv seen to eive a vigorous kick be
neath the old gray shawl.
The mother patted and soothed and
rocked, and it was soon seen to be
false alarm. It proved that the kid
was restive, however,and now every
body sat bolt upright' and scarcely
dared to breathe. Just opposite the
mother was a solid old chap with a
'smooth, fat face and a red nose.
Amidst the awful silence he was ob
served to carry his right hand to that
bloorain' nasal organ and gently rub
it. Like a flash of lierhtning the
same thought occurreil to every
"Just suppose that old duffer there
should indulge in a sneeze!"
He dropped his hand and there was
u great sigh of relief, but fifteen
seconds later up went the hands again
and now his eyes began to betray
anxiety. There was a sneeze working
its way up along that nose, and the
juestion with him was, could he sup
press it? He had on heavy-soled
shoes and had he made a break for
the door, forty feet away, he would
have been mobbed.
The baby gave another kick, 'and
now the attention of the passengers
was divided and the silence grew
more awful. The man with the
bloomin' nose held it between his
thumb and linger and looked around,
and the man on his leit sternly whis
pered in his ear:
"If you do sneeze and wake
infernal young'un I'll be hang
we don't pitch you out of the
The mother began tossing the baby
in her arms and whispering "Sh! sh!
h!" and the man with the nose shut
his eyes and hung on for dear life.
Everybody was betting twenty to
one that ho would beat the sneeze,
wht'ii up wmt hi- eyebrow, his ryes
opened with a look of horror in
them, and the sueee tired itself off
with a sound like the explosion of a
keg of gunpowder. Twenty men
sprang to their feet to murder him,
but before a hand could be raised the
baby kicked, turned over, sat up and
pulled the veil off its face, aud be
hold! one of the chubbiest, hand
somest "yearlings" ever seen in New
York looked around with a laugh,
"Goo! Goo! Ah goo! Ah-goo!"
Then everybody laughed and ap
plauded and got up and walked
around, and at least half the crowd
had to pat that kid on the head, and
tickle him under the chin, and tel1
the mother that he was just the sweet.

Sugar-bounty accounts are now
coming in at the Treasury Depart
ment. With the bills for the amount
of the bounty come certificates as to
the weight of the various quantities
of sugar produced signed by the in-
pecting officers .of the internal reve
nue service. J lie amount of the
bounty is two cents a pound. The
Treasury cftieials are, already esti
mating the probable amount which
will be required to satisfy the sugar
bounty provisions for all kinds of su
garcane, beet, and maple. It is
reported that they estimate the total
amount of the bounty at about $10,
000,000. This estimate is regarded as
too low by some, who think that the
out-put of beet-sugar will consider
ably surpass current expectations.
That, of course, is something which
can pnly be determined later on

Surviving Confederate Generals.
Of the more prominent Confeder
ate generals, we believe that three
remain Beauregard, Early and
Longstreet. Beauregard (who was
one of the six full generals,) was
born in 1818, and was graduated at
West Point Military Academy 1838.
Early was born in the same year
(1818,) and was graduated at West
Point in 1837. Longstreet' was born
about 1822, and graduated at West
Point in the year 1842, Father Time,
with his rentless scythe, is rapidly
harvesting the Confederate leaders,
and is also making inroads on their
followers. The "boys" who wore
the "gray" on their backs, nearly
thirty years ago, are now exhibiting
it on their heads and have come to
realize the fact that the battle how
ever protracted is nearing its end.
A sad reflection, but to those con
8cious ot having discharged their
duty, it is not devoid of a measure of

A New Word
It is respectfully suggested to the
learned professors who manage the
literary department of Webster's die
tionary that they have up to date
omitted a word which by reason of
its frequent use in the. newspapers
when referring to American railway
matters, certainly deserves to lie
placed in good orthographical society
The word referred to is a compound
active ejaculative, and is used princi
cipally in the West as a substitute for

A Poisonous Thimble.
Among the numberless causes of
blood poisoning through the skin,
one which was lately recorded is
worth noting on account of its evi
dent simplicity and the ease of its
preventibn. In the case referred to
the sufferer was a seamstress, and the
mischief resulted from Iter using a
dirty metal thimble marked with
verdigris, a little of which appears to
have entered a scratch on the thimble
finger. We can well believe that
this accident was not the first of its
kind. Verdigris, it is true, is a mere
metallic irritant, and not comparable
in virulence to most living germs of
disease. It is quite enough, notwith
standing, to excite local inflamma
tion, which friction, contact with
dyed cloth material, or the entrance
of dirt in any form would quickly
convert into a dangerous and general
disorder. There is really no excuse
tor women who trust their fingers in
these cheap and worse than useless
articles. Steel thimbles are much
safer and cost very little. Another
variety also in common use is en
ameled within, and is, if possible,
even freer from objection. Let us
us not forget to add a caution that
cuts or scratches on the hand should
never be neglected by sewing women
so long as dyes continue to be used in

The new extradition treaty be

Defaulters and embezzlers will here
after find no safety in fleeing from

will doubtless have some effect in
diminishing crime in this country.
