A Fisherman's Meteor.
Tho fall of a meteor in the bay near
Goat Island, from the (Inscription given
to a San Francisco V'tll reorter by
various persons on the witter front,
must have been a sight seldom wiu
nessed by man. Hearing that an old
fisherman hnd been on the bay near
where tho aerolito fell, the reporter
looked him up, and got the following
story: Yes.' said he, "I was near the
place when that meteor fell, and let me
say right here, I don't, want to bo there
when the next one comes down. I tell
you what, young man, I've been in agood
many close places in California, fight
ing gr'izzlion and standing off Mexicans
in 4U, out I never said my prayers as
many times in a second as I did when
that meteor lit out for the bay this
morning. I was going across tho bay
to tho Oakland Hats to sot my nets, as I
do most every morning. Well when I
got almost opposite the island, all of a
sudden it got so light that I thought the
whole cloetriu light business had ex
ploded l ight over my hoad. I pulled
fur the island as hard as I could, for I
always had a holy horror of making
fish-bait of myself. I had not made
two strokes when It got all-tired hot,
and I looked around and was just in
time to see the grandest and terriblest
sight these old eyes ever looked upon.
Not ten feet from in- I ho meteor struck
the water. It looked as large as a
horse. When it struck you could havo
heard the hissing almost a ruilo. I
never board anything liko it before.
Almost as soon as it went under inv
boat was over the spot, and tho water
was bubbling and steaming as though
a young volcano had broken out." "Do
you think you could lined tho exact
place where the meteor struck P" axked
tho reporter. 'I don't know. As soon
as daylight came 1 went back to see
how things looked, and found a num
ber of dead fish floating around. I
think it was about 200 yards from the
island, a little cast of south. I was so
badly scared that I can't say exactly."
"How old are you, and what is your
nanio?" "I was born in Maine in 182H,
and my name is John Small'atiswered
the lone fisherman. The reporter
called upon Prof. Hanks at tho Stato
Mining Bureau. The professor was
out of town, but it had boon reported
by several parties that tho aorolite had
boen seen by quite a number of por
sons. Prof. Davidson was also callud
upon, but was out. This is, without
doubt, one of tho largest aerolites that
has visited tho earth for some time

Charge of the Light. Brigade. .
After we had mounted for the famous
charge, and just before we commenced
our advance. Colonel Shewell, com
manding the Eight Hussars, happened
to rest Ids eyo on oue of his men with
a pipe in his m mill, which so excited
his military ire. that he hallooed to
him that "he was disgracing his reg
iment by smoking in the presence of
the enemy," a gmvo view of the ques
tion which certainly I (his command
ing officer) did not, or at least up to
that time had not reciprocated, inas
much as I at this very moment was en
joying a remarkably good cigar. Tho
question then arose in my mind, "Am
I to S"t this bad example? (in the Col
onel's opinion, at least,) or should I
throw away a good cigar?" no such
common article in those days, be it re
membered. Well, the cigar carried
the day, aud it lasted me tilt we got to
the guns. With shame do I say it.
There was ono, I believe, who,
when he started on this advance, was
insonsible to the desperate undertaking
in which he was about to be engaged.
So we went on. "Right Hank
keep up. Close in to your centre!"

groans, the "ping, ping," whizzing

One incident struck me forcibly about
this time-the bearing of the riderless
horses in such circumstances. I was.
of course, riding by mvself and clear
of the line, and for that reason was a
marked .nhiocl fir the poor, dunib
brutes. They consequently made dash
es at me, some advancing with me a
considerable distance, at. ono tune as
many as five on my right and two ou
my left cringing in on me. and positive
ly squeezing me astliii round shot came
bounding by them. I remarked their
eyes betokening as keen a sonso of the
perils around them as we human beings
experienced, (and that is saying a good
deal). The bearing of the horse I was
riding, in contrast to tlieso, was re
markable. He had been struck, but
showed no signs of fear, thus evincing
the confidence of dumb animals in tho
superior being. Ae Liuht. Vamlry

The Meat Mines of Siberia.
It hasoficn been stated that tho in
habitants of Polar Siberia feed their
dogs on mammoth meal, preserved in
nature's ice bouse, and slice' off at the
convenience of . the dogs. How these
tropical animals come to bo ao near the
Pole is an unsolved problem of the
earth's history. There are various
theories intended to explain the con
ditions, but none of them are quite con
vincing. Tho most reasonable one is
that years ago there must have been
sudden change of temperature at the
Polos from torrid to frigid. Tho animals
were caught out of their latitude,
frozen, and buried in ice.
A recent traveller In Siberia relates
that, happening to drive in a sledge
along the base of one of the monstrous
(co-cliffs that overhang the estuary of
tho river Lena, he came upon a pack
of wolves devouring the frozen flesh of
& mammoth. ,TIm breaking away of a
portion of tho cliff had exposed the
monster pile of preserved meat, and at
the hands of nature the wolves were
helping themselves. So nature brings
recompense for her freaks, and takes
caro of her own. The meat mines of
Siberia have not been developed, and
no ono knows what riches they may
contain; or how they miiy yet bo uti
liz"d in tho economy of the world. Tho
search may discover tho w de mam
moth, warranted fresh from Siberia.

A Remarkable Pony.
A woll-authoutioated and extraordin
ary ease of tho sagacity of tho Shot
land pony has just come under our
notice. A year or two ago, Mr. Win.
Sinclair pupil teacher, Holm, imported
one of these liltlo animals from Shet
land, on which to ride to and from
school, his residents bring ut a consid
erable distance from the school-buildings.
Un to that time, the animal had
been unshod; but some lime afterward
Mr. Sinclair had it shod by Mr. Pratt,
the parish blacksmith. The other day.
Mr. Pratt, whose Miiilhy is a long dis
tance from Mr. Sinclair's house, saw
the pony, without halter or any thiug
upon it, walking up to where ho was
working. Thinking tho animal had
strayed from homo, ho drove it off,
throwing stones after the boost to mnko
it run homeward. This had tho desired
effect for a short time; but Air. Pratt
had only got fairly to work once more
in the' smithy when the pony's hoad
ngain mado Its appearance at the door.
On proceeding a second time outshh
to drive the pony away, Mr. Pratt, with
a blacksmith s iustinct, took a look at
tho pony's feet, whon he observed that
one of its shoes hud been lost. Having
made a shoo, ho put it on, and then
wailed to see what the animal would
do. For a moment It looked at the
blacksmith as If asking whether he was
done, then pawed once or twice to soo
If the newly-shod foot was comfortable,
and finally gave a pleased neigh, erect
ed his hoad, and started home at a
brisk trot. The owner was also exceed
ingly surprised to find the animal at
home, completely shod, tho same even
ing; and it was only on calling at the
mlthy some days afterward that he
learned the full etut of nl Von3
agaolty.--fM"' faUL ,,
