The Old (;eittlemanS Mistake.
'Nice child, very nice child," ob
served an old gentleman, crossing the
aisle and addressing the mother of the
buy who had just hit him in the eye
with a wad of paper. "How old are
you, mv son?'' "None of your biiinesv"
replied the youngster, taking aim at an
other pa-enger. "Fine boy,'" stniied
the old man. as the parent regarded her
oll'-pring with pride. "A reinarkablv
line boy. What isyourname, my son?''
'T'uddin' Tame!'' 'shouted the "young
ster, with a giggle at his own wit. "I
thought so,'' continuod the old man,
pleasantly. "If you had given mo
three cnicsses at "it, that would have
been the lirst one I would have struck
on. Now l'uddin', you can blow those
tilings pretty straight, can't von?"'
"You bet:" s'jtiea'ed the boy, delfghted
at the compliment. "ee tiie take that
old fellow ever there!" "No.no'.'' ex
claimed tin; old gentleman, hastily.
"Try it on the old woman I was sitting
w'th. Mie has hoys of her own, and
she won't mind." " " Can't you hit the
la iy for the gentleman, 'johnny?''
ak' d the fund parent. Johnnv drew a
bead and landed the pellet riglit on the
end of t ic old woman's nose. But .he
did mind it, and rising in her wraih
soared down on the small boy like a
hlivanl. she put him over the line,
reversed him, ran him backward till ho
didn't know which end of him was
front, and finally dropped him into the
lap of the seaivil mother, with a bene
diction whereof the purport was that
she'd be back in a moment and skin
him alive. "She didn't seem to like it,
I'uddin'," smiled the old gentleman
softly, "She's a perfect stranger to mo,
tint 1 understand she is matron of ti
truants' home, and I thought she would
like a little fun; but I was mistaken."
And the old gentleman sighed sweetly
as he went back to his seat. iivc
min. The English Mile.
FM.Fnyehna explained why it tnkes
sixty-nine and a half English miles to
make a degree instead of sixty, as was
probably intended when the mile was
established. The English geographers
deduced their mile from Ptolemy, and
I'toh iny refers to Eratosthenes. " Era
tosthenes measured the arc of tho mer
idian on the basis of the distance be
tween Svenne and Aloxandria, in
Egypt, which gave 700 stadia to the
degree. Ptolemy says that he verified
the measurements of Eratosthenes ami
found the same result, which ho jrives,
however, as ,rdO stadia, to the degree
The discrepancy arises from a change
which took place in the st mdard of the
foot of which lino went to the stadium
during the -100 years between Eratos
thenes and Ptolemy. Eratosthenes used
the ancient Egyptian foot, which is
shorter than ours, while Ptolemy used
the Phileterian foot, which is longer
than ours. Making allowauco for this
difference, tho two measurements
agree. Tho English geographers, in
making their calculation, believed that
Ptolemy had used still another foot, tho
Creek foot, which is one and a half hun
dredths longer than ours, but shorter
than the one ho did actually use. If
the English geographers of the sixteenth
century had strained this valuation ever
so little, and had carried it to five ono
hundredths, they would have found (i.'iO
English feet for the stadium, which they
believed to bo GOO Creek feet, ttnd these
G.'lo feet, or '10 yards, multiplied by otii),
would give them 10.".oiii) yards for tho
degree and exactly 1,700 yards for tho
mile.-.V. T. raid.

Tho kind word that turneth awny
wrath has no practical effect in turuin r
away a book agent. Cleveland Leauer,
Some time ago, Judge Ciaphram,
while holding court at aii obscure town
on his circuit, was troubled by an old
squatter. The old fellow wits so evasive,
showing such a disposition to shield ono
of his friends, that the Judge lined him
for contempt and sent him to jail. Sev
eral days ago, the Judge, while en rotilo
in a buggy to hold court at the same
place, lost the road and wandered around
in the woods. Night came on. and to
increase the perplexity of tho situation,
a heavy rain began to fall. After wan
dering around for an indelinite length of
time, the Judge discovered a light glim
mering among tho distant trees. 'J lim
ing his horse in that direction, ho soon
reached a small opening in the forest
and then, stopping when the wheels of
his buggy grated against a fence, he
"All riglit," answered aman opening
the door of a cabin and coming out to
the rude suggestion of agate.
"Havo you got enough room in your
house for a man to stay all night,"
asked tho Judge.
"I'm Very glad to hear it. I am lost
in tho woods and any accommodation
that you may oiler will be thaukfully
"Yus. but I ain't said nothin' 'bout
"Didn't you say that I could stay all
night with you?"
"You said that you had room for a
man to stay all night."
"Yas, but I didn't say two men. I've
got plenty o' room fur "one man, but I
am tho man myself, stranger."
"Look here, my friend, 1"
"It'ssodark I kain'tsee ycr, sowhnt's
the usen lookin' thar?"
"I know whut yer say."
"Well, now, my goo! man "
"Jes' ez wall now as, any time."
"You evidently don't understand me.
I have lost the road ami am in a pitia
"Whar did ver lo-e it?"
"I don't know."
"Better go back and find out."
"It's too dark now to tell where I lost
"Then it's too dark ter tell when
you'd li ml it."
How far is it to Blakeville?"
"Do yer wanter go thar?"
"Yes, but, as 1 tell you, I've lost my
way. Is there a straight road from here
"Wall, part o' it is an' part o' it
"But you can direct mo so that I will
not lose tho way?"
"I mout ef it'wa'n't for one thing."
"It's too dark."
"Do you think, however, that I can
find my way there?"
"You can find it if it's thar."
"I mean will I havo any trouble in
finding my way?"
"I don't know whether ver will or
not. Don't wanter ter lling no ou
st ieklos in yer way."
"Come, my good man"
"I'm er good man but I can't come."
"Well, as I am not likely to find my
wav, can you let me stay all ni'ht
"Well, I'll unhitch my horse and
"Yer may unhitch yer boss, but yer
needn't come in."
"You said I could stay all night."
"Said ycr could stay here, but didn't
say yer could stay in thar."
"I see you have no accommodation
alio, it vou. Tell mo which way to drive
and I'll leave you."
The old fellow gave minute directions
and tho Judge drove on. Pretty soon
his horse stopped, and despite persist
ant urging, refused to go forward. Fi
nally the buggy became tangled in un
derbrush and could not be backed.
Tho .Judge got out, and was tugging at
a hind wheel when some ono called:
"Say, over thar!"
"Hello! That vou?"
"Heckin it is.'
"Glad to see you, for I am stuck."
"Yer mout bo stuck, but yer kain't
"I mean that I am glad to know you
"An' I'm glad ter know yer air
"Kain't see ycr if I do look."
"I want to got out of hero."
"Wall, git then."
"You are a miserable hound, that's
what you are."
"That's all right, poduer. I am the
Judge in this hero case, an' I'll sock it
tor yer fur contempt. Don't recolleck
me, I reckon. Never mitio payiu' tho
fine. Jos' stay in jail awhile. Good
night. Ef yer want anything, call fur
it. Jailer may be hard "ter wake, but
call him, Cap n, call him. May not liko

Skating Made Easy.
For tho benefit of amateur skaters,
the following advice is given:
1. Never try to skato in two direc
tions at one time. It always ends in
-'. Eat a few apples for refreshment's
sake while skating, and be sure to throw
the cores on tho ice.
8. Sit down occasionally, no matter
where. There is no law to prevent a
new beginner from sitting down when
ever he has an inclination to do so.
4. When you meet a particularly
handsome lady try to skato on both
sides of her at once, and thereby croato
C OC IflH
T. Skate over all tho small boys at
(!. If you skate into a holo in the ico
tako it coolly. Think how you would

7. If your skates nro too slippery
buy a new pair. Keep buying new
pairs till you tind a pair that is not slip
pery. . In sitting down do it gradually.
Don't bo too sudden. You mkrbt break
!). When you fall headlong ox-nmino
tho strap of your skates very carefully
before you get up.
10. Wear a heavy overcoat or clonk
till you get thoroughly wnrmod up, and
then throw it off aud lot tho wind cool

One Widow's Great Woe.
There is nothing remarkable about
ln;r. She is a shriveled, pinched little
willow, whoso thin, rusty bhi' k gar
ments and faded veil of era po have
wiih -lood the slo; ins ami sunshine of
the six i iirs that have passed by since
she put on mourning for her lost hus
band. He hud been it generous, dash
ing sailor, who spent his little earnings
to make his family comfortable, and
when he went down at sea she dropped
nil her old luxurious ways and went
forth to earn a living for the two littlo
gii'N that were left to her. By going
out to nurse the sick and by taking in
sewing when not otherwise employed,
she managed to keep the children with
her, and last fall, when tho younger
one began to go to school and "brought
home little words of praise and encour
agement from her teacher, there was
not a happier mother in Boston than
the one w ho occupied tho modest tene
ment on Northampton street. Work
and the responsibility of supporting her
children respectably had dulled her
great sorrow, and tho desire to rear
them to honest womanhood was some
thing to keep up her Flagging spirits
and cause hope to spring and grow
from what had at one timo seemed tho
depths of despair. Merry Christmas
was not celebrated with inoro joyful-ne-s
anyw here than in this little family;
the turkey was small ami tho dolls were
inexpensive, but they were as much to
these two children and their hearts were
as grateful for tho gifts as though the
treasures of Aladdin had been showered
upon them. It was the last Christmas
tle y were ever destined to see. On New
Yi a; 's day the eldest she of the curly
hair and eyes that were black and mer
ry, like her father's died of scarlatina,
and in one week from her death tho
other one, who was so tall and demure,
and who looked like a little woman in
spiio of herliifantile years, was laid bo
side her sister in forest Hills.
Th widowed mother went through it
all, watched at their sides by night and
lav, saw them L ss and moan iu de
lirium, gave them soothing medicines,
smoothed their feverish pillows, ever
whispering words of comfort and cheer,
and when all hope was gone still held
their pallid hands nudclosedtheirsight
les.s e. es without a tear. On the day
after the last one was buried she bought
two simple i oinpiets of pinks ami ferns,
and taking them to tho cemetery placed
them on tho graves of her "babies,"
as she was in the habit of calling them.
'1 ho following day her pilgrimage was
repeated, and the next and the next and
the next. Her habits were so regular
that no matter how cold or how warm
it was, or how many stayed at home on
account of tho weather, tho conductors
of the Egleston Square lino of horse
cars felt sure of having at least one
passenger every day. These visits were
made early in the forenoon, and after
she had finished this duty she would
wander around on the various streets of
the Highlands, looking at the children
as they romped and played, and asking
every ono she met if they had seen any
thing of her babies. After removing
the old bouquets and replacing them
with fresh ones, she would make a cir
cuit of the burying-place. and then walk
down Washington street as far as Dud
ley street. Then instead of going home
she would turn up Warren street to
Grove Hall anil return by tho way of
Blue Hill avenue, peering anxiously in
to tho face of every little girl she saw,
and asking her if she had seen her Hat
tie and Mamie. "My Mamie had hair
like yours," she said to a child in Win
throp street, curling her tresses fondly
on her fingers and matching them with
a lock which she held in her hand;
"but hers was nicer than yours; see, it
is as line and yellow as threads of gold.
I have lost her somewhere; she and my
other baby went away a week ago anil
more, ami I want them to come home.
You looked liko her when I first saw
you: but your ej-cs are not so bright,
nor your hair so fine. I don't want to
trouble you any, but if you see my ba
bies anywhere "will you tell them that
their mother is at" home waiting for
them? Their books arc on the stand,
and their supper is growing cold; tell
them to como at once, for I know they
will catch cold. Thank you, dear, I
know you w ill not break a poor moth
er's heart." And, kissing the surprised
child, she went on as earnest as ever' in
her fruitless search.
When the City of Columbus disaster
occurred she appeared deeply affected,
and followed tho newspaper accounts
of its horrors with an interest that
seemed strange for a person who had
no friends among the passenger-; or
crew. In addition to her usual peram
bulation of streets and daily visits to
tho cemetery she called at ail the un
dertakers' rooms and at the morgue on
Grove street, asking if they had found
the body of her husband.
"1 know ho is dead," she would say,
"but, I want to see his face and know
that ho has a decent burial. If my ba
bies only knew that their papa was dead,
they would como homo and comfort
their poor mother and never run away
It was after the disaster that she be
gan to buy three lloral offerings and
tako them to Forest Hills instead of tho
two she had been wont to carry, and,
although she never gave any explana
tion for her conduct, cvervbodv knew
that the extra bouipiet was'for her hus
band, w hose loss at sea six years ago this
last disaster had newly impivssei upon
her shattered intellect, causing her to
believe him among ihoso w ho were on
the City of Columbus.
When she began U meander tho
streets, looking in at tho school houses
and questioning the girls she met in her
mild, earnest manner, residonts along
her rotilo were afraid of her. and sotno
talk was made of having her arrested
and sent away for insanity; but when
the story of her sorrows became known
this idea was at once abandoned, and
those who were most suspicious are now
her pitying friends and vie with ono
auother In deeds of kindness to herwho
is so anxiously searching for thoso sho
will never limlL'ostun Ulobc.

"1 am looking for a stray horse,"
said a man stopping nt tho houso of an
Arkansawyor and addressing a nativu
w ho came out and leaned on the foneo.
"Whut sorter horse?"
"Sorrel, with u white star in his foro
head." "How long's he been gone?"
"About a day and a half."
"Good wo k uag?"
"Wanter swop him fur a betfcronoP''
"No. I believe not."
"White star in his forehead, ycr say?"
"An' yer don't wanter swop bini?"
"No, 1 believo not."
"Certa'n he's a good work nag?"
"Of t ourso I am."
"An' yer don't wanter swan him fur
a better one?"
"Here, my friend, I haven't timo to
talk such nonsense. 1 want to know
if you have seen anything of tho kind of
horse I described "
"Why didn't you say so?"
"Yer didn't. Said that's tho kind o'
boss yer w as lookin' fur, but yer didn't
ax ef I'd seed him."
"Excuse mo, for I intended to. Ilo
got loose and 1 havo looked for him
"Good worK nag?"
"Splendid, the best I ever saw."
"Don't want ter swap him for a let
"I told you n."
"But that was before you axed ef I'd
?cc I him."
'1 ho searcher after information looked
at the squatter with a hard staro, but
the squatter, undaunted, leaned on tho
fence, whilo tobacco juice showed a dis-
tosition to trickle from tho corners of
ds mouth "I thought that I had soon
thfl biggest fool in tho country, but you
tako tho lead," said tho inquirer, with
a deliberation that left no room for mis
take "I thought that my wife's fathor

"Wa'l, tell mo 'zactly what sorter

" Sorrel, with a white star in bis fore

" As good as I ever saw, and "
" Don't wanter trade h'm for a better

just in time to avoid a blow which tho
stranger leveled at him. So far as tho
Arkans tw man is concerned, tho sor

stranger did not care to swap for a bet

The best evidence in the world of the
purity and eicellence of lllackwell's Bidl
Durham Smoking Tobacco is found in the
fact that the fame of this tobacco increases
from year to year. This could not be the
cae if it were merely " K"tten up to sell,"
or had any dubious or dangerous ingre
dients lu it. Among millions of uers of
all nationalities, surely soma one would
find out if it were Impure, injurious or
unpalatable. For 18 years Uiistobacco has
been acknowledged to be the but in iht
world, and every year the Hull Durham
brand grows more popular, the demand for
it wider, and tmoiers
delicious natural flavor.
