Oute Tricks of Mormon Women.
On last Sunday morning, an old Mor
mon whoso wifo wits sick, attoniptod to
tiook a breakfast on his own hook. He
found sonif! eggs iu tlwt pantry, whie'i
ho proceeded to fry. It was pretty hard
work to fry tlio.so eggs, but a good deal
more of a j'fo to eat thoni. One mouth
ful was enough, and tho old follow
rushed up stain with:
'Iletsy, what in thunder's the matter
with them eggs?"
"Did you get 'em in that earthen
crock on tho top sholf, just alongsido
tho sassengers? '
'That's tho place."
"Oh, John, those eggs have boen un
der the red hen two weeks. They aint
for table use. Them's titbin eggs, John.
When I can't hutch eggs I turn 'em
over to tho Lord."
The old man then laughed inordinate
ly and said that would bo a good joke
on tho collectors. In connection with
tho above melancholy exposure of tho
lukcwaiTOticss in Israel, it is said that
of lato nearly all of the eggs which
come into tho tithing house are looked
upon with suspicion. Halt Lake 'Trib
une. Dr. Tuttle, of Naugatuck, Conn., lost
a valuable horso in tho most singular
manner. His two horses stood side by
sido in tho stablo, as thoy had done for
years; but the other morning ono of
thetu was found bleeding at tho mouth
and the manger and stablo floor wore
covered with goro. Investigation
showed that in somo way tho other
horso had gotten hold of tho wounded
animal's tongue and literally pulled it
out by the roots. Tho touguo was
found in tho other horso's mangor with
plain teeth marks upon it. The horses
were wont to nip at each other in play,
and it is supposed that ono got hold of
tho other's tonguo as if it had been a
bit of rojio or otiior inanimate sub
stance. Tho injured horso was killed
to end i's sufferings.
The Colored Element aud Esthetic Lunacy-
Tho president of tho Limo Kiln Club
slatod that ho had boen asked on sever
al different occasions if tho aisthetio
lunacy had visibly i fT ctod the colored
people of tho North. His own personal
observation had not furnished any evi
dence in tho affirmative, but ho would
liko to hear members express them
selves. Kyhavon Johnson said that a neigh
bor of his had run all over town to pur
chase a second-hand bedstead and that
she bad finally socurod ono twenty
three years old; but ho thought from the
hot-water treatment given it that she
did not prize tbo rolic.
Trustee Fullback know of a case
whero a colored man bad paid sovou
dollars for a coat supposed to bo twenty-eight
years old; but it afterward
came out that ho expected to find money
in tho lining.
Eldor Toots siiid that his third wifo
had cvincod a desire to pay soventy-fivo
cents for an old earthen platter that
had come over iu tho Muyllower: but,
when informed that if nho did she
would iro without shoes all win tor, sho
had suiil no moro on tho subject.
As far as could bo ascertained from
tho best postod membors, tho colored
olemeut are enliroly free from lunacy
and not likely to bo nffuctod this year.
Trying to dorner an "Oldost Inhabitant."
Thoro is nothing will kcop tho atten

fixed on this cud of the century longer
t ban it will take him to respond to a
"what'll you take" invitation. Ho drifts
into unreliable history tho moment ho

to bol with a stranger that ho, tbo
stranger, could not propound any ques
tion to "an oMest inhabitant" that would
not bo directly or indirectly answer
ed by a referonco to souio incident cor
roded with tho rust of antiquity. Tho
stranger, on bolng introduced to tho
old goutlemau said: "Colonel who is
going to bu our next GovernorP" The
stranger thought he was doing a smart
thing by asking tho old mau a question
that 'would naturally project his Tni.id
into tho futuro, as it were. Tho "oldost
inhabitant" caught the stranger by tbo
sleevo, lo t him over to a seat, and re
p. I'd: "My friend, when I camo to
Texas, In tho Spring of '87, I didn't

remarkablo theories have boon advanc
ed regarding the tides. Many of theso
are truly ho absurd that it is hardly
worth whilo to rofor to them. Persous
find it diilioult to understand why tho
tides aro higher at one time than an
other, and why they riso to the height
of sixty foot in the Bav of Fundy. forty
feet in tho porta of Bristol, England,
and St. Malo, France, and only riso to
a fow foot in hoight at Now York and
other places, whilo thoy aro scarcely

lescartes was the first philosopher who
advanced the thoory that tho ti le wero
due to tho influence of tho moon, but
Newton was tho first who worked nut
tho problem and discovered the true
ciuso. Descartes beliovcd tha', tho
moon actod on tho waters of the ocean
by pressure; Newton denioustrittod that
it acted on tho ocoan by attraction;
that instead of pressing the waters it
rolled them up dlrootly under it, aud
also at its antipodes at the same time, ,
thus producing tho two tides everv day.
Tho tides aro attractions of both tlu)
bud and moon. If the earth had no
moon tho attraction of tho sun would
produce) two tides every day, but their
ebb aud flow would take place at the
saum hours, not varying as thoy do.
Theso thles would nlso bo much smaller
than those of tho moon. Although tho
mass of tho sua is far grantor than that
of the moon, aud though attract bit is
in proportion to the mass, yet it is also
inversely as tho square of tho dlstnnoo. ?,
As the sun, thoroloro, is four hundred
tiiuos moro distant than tho moon the
attraction of the waters of tho sea to
ward the sun is found to bo about three
times less than those of tho moon. ,
There are really two ocean tides, tho
luuarand solar, but the lattor is ab
sorbed by tho former, which Is wholly
observable In respect to the timo, the
solar only as it Influences tho hoight of '
the tidal wave. That causod by the
moon is three times greater than that
of the sun, aud it follows the moon's
motion around the earth, rising and
falling twelve hours, and each succeed
ing tide later by thro-qnarters ot an
hour than the preceding one, exacUy
