To Make a Filter.
The Scientific American gives the following
directions for making a water filter
: To make a filter with a barrel, procure
a piece of fine brass wire cloth of a
size sufficient to make a pattition across
the barrel. Support this wire cloth with
a coarser wire cloth under it and also a
light frame of oak, to keep the wire cloth
from sagging. Fill in upon the wire cloth
about three inches in depth of clear,
sharp sand, then two inches of charcoal
broken up finely, but no dust. Then on
the charcoal four inches of clear, sharp
sand. Fill up the barrel with water, and
draw from the bottom.
A frankfort despatch to the Courier-Journal

The tenor of the argument for the appellant
is that Ellis, who was hanged by the mob,
and was the chief witness against Crntt.if
living would huve boon an Incompetent witness
by reason of his having been convicted
of au infamous crime, and that, therefore,
proof as to his testimony upon the former
trial was incompetent. Ellis, while In (nil at

which the appellant offered to prov, The
lower court oxcluded the testimony, and the
action in so doing is relied upon tig good
grounds tor a reversal of the rasp. It Is claimed

opportunity to explain, and that theretn.ro a
dead witness can not be contradicted. Theso

THE BAD BOY.
Why the Grocery Man Thought he was
a Thoroughbred and Gave him ulltlie
Herrimr lie Wanted.
Strange nml Unaccountable Comliict of
his Pa over a Suit of Clothes.
" Ah, ha, you have got your deserts at
last," said the grocery man to the bad
boy, as ho came in with one eye black,
and his nose peeled on one side, and sat
down on a board ncross the coal scuttle,
and betzan whistling as unconcerned as
possible. " What's the matter with your
"Boy tried to gouge it out without
asking my consent," and the bud boy
took a dried herring out of tho. box anil
began peeling it. " He is in bed now,
and his ma is poulticing him, and she
says he will be out about the last of next
" Oh, you are going to be a prize fighter,
ain't you," said the grocery man, disgusted.
' When a boy leaves a job whore
he is working, and goes to loafing around
he becomes a fighter the first thing.
What your pa ought to do is bind vouout
with a farmer, where you would have to
work all the time. I wish you would go
away from here, becaues "you look like
one of theso fellows that comes up before
the police judge Monday morning, and
gets thirtv days in tho house of correction.
Why don't you go out and loaf
around a slaughter house, whore you
would look appropriate?" and tho grocery
man took a hair-brush and brushed
some loose sugar and tea, that was on the
counter, into the sugar barrel.
" Well, if you have got through with
your sermon, I will toot a little on my
horn," and the boy throw the remains of
the herring over behind a barrel of potatoes,
and wiped his hands on a eoil'ee
sack. " If you had this black eye, and
had got it the way I did, it would boa
more priceless gem in tho crown of glory
you hope to wear, than any gem you can
get by putting quarters in tho collection
plate, with the holes filled with lead, as
you did last Sunday, when I was watching
you. 0, didn't you look pious when
you picked that filled quarter out, and
held your thumb over tho place where
the lead. was. The way of tho black eye
was this. I got a job tending a soda
fountain, and last night, just before wo
closed, there was two or three young
loafers in the place, and a girl came in for
a glass of soday. Fivo years ago she was
ono of tho brightest scholars in tho ward
schools, when I was in tho intermediate
department. Sho was as handsome as a
peach, and everybody liked her. At
recpss sho used to take my part when tho
boys knocked me around, and she lived
near us. She had a heart as big as that
cheese box, and I guess that's what's the
matter. Anyway, sho left school, and
then it was said she was going to be married
to a follow who is now in the dudo
business, but ho wont back on her and
after awhile her ma turned her out doors,
and for a year or two sho was jerking beer
in a concert saloon, until the mayor stopped
tho concerts. She tried hard to net
sewing to do, but they wouldn't have
her, I guess 'causo sho cried so much
when she was sewing, and the tears wet
tho cloth she was sewing on. Once I
asked pa why ma didn't give hor some
sewing to do, and he said tor me to dry
up and never speak to her if I met her
on tho street. It seemed tuff to pass her
on the street, when she had tears in her
eyes as big as marbles, and not speak to
her when I know her so well, and she
had been so kind to me at school, just
cause a dude would't marry her, but I
wanted to obey pa, so I used to walk
around a block "when I saw her coming,
'fause I dtd'nt want to hurt her feelings.
Well, last nitfht she came in the store,
looking pretty shabby, and wanted a
of soda, and I gave it to her. and O.
how her hand trembled when she raised
the glass to her lips, and lmw wet lur
eyes were, and how pale her f ici was. 1
choked up so I couldn't sp mIc when sho
hinded mo the nickel, and when she
looked up at mo and smiled just like sl.e
usod to. and suid I was getting to be almost
a man since we went to at the
old school house and put her handkerchief
tohereyes, by gosh, mv eyes got so full I
could'nt tell whethwr it was a nickel or a
lozcnger she gave me. Just then one of
th'Ke loafers began to laugh at her, and
c.dl her names and say the police ought to
take her up for a stray, and he made fun
of htr until she cried some moiv, and I
got hot and went around to where he was
and told him if he said another unkind
word to her I would maul him. He laughed
and asked if she was mv sister, and I
told him that a poor friendless siirl, who
was sick and in distress, and who was insulted,
ought to be every boy's sister,
for a minute, and any boy who had a
spark of manhood should "protect her,
and then he lauu'lnM and said I oughtto
be one of the Little Sisters of the Poor,
and he took hold uf her faded sh iwl and
pulled the weak girl against the showcase,
and said something mean to her.
and she looked as though hhe wanted to
die, and I mashed that boy one rLdit on
the nose. Well, the air'sHmed to b
full of me for a minute, cuise he wis1
bigger than me, and he got me down nid
got his thumb in my eye.
was going to take my eye out, but I '
turned him over and got on top mid f ,
mauled him until he beguud, lui I
wouldn't let him up till he asked th
girl's pardon, and swore he would wh p
any hoy that insulted her, and t en 1
let him up, and the girl th n'ed m . bu
I told her I couldn't apeak to her, 'c ue
she was tuff, and pa didn't want me to
speak to anybody who was tuff, but if
anybody ever in&ulted her so she had to
cry, that I would whip him if I hail to
take a club. I told pa about it, and I
thought he would be mad at me for la
part of a gi 1 that was tuff, but
by gosh, pa hugged me. and -the tears
come in his eyes, and he srtid I had ot
good blood in me, and he said I did just
eight, and if I would show him the fatln r
of the boy that I whipped, pa sad he
would whip the old man, and mas i I for
me to find the poor girl and send her up
to the house and she would give her a
job makiflg pillow-cases and night shirts
Don't it seem darn queer to you that
everybody goes back on a poor girl 'cause
she makes a mistake, and the blasted
whelp that-is to blame gets a chrom .
It makes ine tired to think of it," and
the boy got up and shook himself, and
looked in the cracked mirror hanging
upon a post, to see how his eye was
"Say, young fellow, you are a thoroughbred,"
said the grocery man, as he
sprinkled some water on the asparagus
and lettuce, "and you can come in here
and get all the herring you want, and
nevor mind the black eye". I wish I had'
it myself. Yes, it does seem tough to
see people never allow a girl to reform.
Now, in Bible times, the Savior forgave
Mary, or somebody, I forget now what
her name was. and sho was n better girl
than ever. What we need is more of the
spirit of Christ, and the world would bo
"What we want is about ten thousand
Christs. We ought to have ten or fifteen
right hero in Milwaukee, and they would
find plenty of business, too. But this
climato scorns to be too rough. Say, did
I tell you about pa and ma having
" Xo, what's the row ?"
" Well, you see ma wants to economize
all she can, and pa has been getting
thinner since ho quit drinkign and reformed,
and I have kept on growing until
I am bigger than he is. Funny, ain't
it, that a boy should bo bigger than his
pa? Pa wanted a new suit of clothes,
and ma said sho would fix him, and so
sho took ono of my old suits and madolit
over for pa, and ho wore them a week
before ho knew it was nn old suit made
over, but one day he found a handful of
dtied up angle worms in tho pistol pocket
that I had forgot when I was fishing,
and pa laid the angle worms to ma, and
ma had to explain that she mado over
ono of my old suits for pa. Ho was mad
and took them off and threw them out
the back window, and swore ho would
never humiliate himself by wearing his
son's old clothes. Ma tried to reason
with him, but he was awlul worked up
up and said ho was no old charity hospital,
and ho stormed around to find his old
suit of clothes, but ma had sold them to
a plaster of pans imago peddler, and pa
hadn't anything to wear, and ho wanted
ma to go out in tho alloy and pick up
the suit ho throw out the window, but a
rag man had picked them up and was
going away, and pa bo grabbed a linen
duster and put it on and went out after
the rag picker, and lie run and pa after
him, and tho rag man told a policeman
there was nn escaped lunatic from the
asylum, and he was chasing people all
over the city, and tho policeman took
na bv the linen ulster and pullid it oil',
'and ho was a sight when they took him
to tho police station. Ma and me Had
to go down and bail him out, and the
police lent us a tarpaulin to put over pa,
and wo got him home, and he is wearing
his summer pants while the tailor'makes
him a new pair of clothes. I think pa
is too excitable, and too particular. I
never kicked on wearing pa sold clothes,
ami I think ho ought to wear mine now.
Well. I must go down to the sweetened
wind factory and jerk soda," and tbe boy L
went out atid hung up a sign in front, of
the store, " Spinnage, for greens, that the cat !
