Tho light of investigation has irradiated
many things that have long been Bhnmded
tn doubt and darkness. Medical science
has shown that rheumatism ami neuralgia
are duo to an impure condition of tho

thoso dreadful maladies, operates upon tho
blond, muse'es and joints, dissolves tho
acids that cause disease, and by driving
them from tho system brings relief to tho

depot, soon caught tho negro iu an attempt
to rob him. The German gave -the alarm
and Several men rushed in to the rescue.

for the back window and jumped cut down

Tho veteran corps of river boys havo
madothemsrlyes scarce lately at their usual
place of assembly, which is at the Waverly
House. They will he on hand, though in
a short time then look out for soma tough
- loin Tim mil's Widow.
Tho little Widow Thumb is casually
a resident of New York, and a wel
come visitor in a considerable number
of rather wealthy .and fashionable fam
ilies. She is a lady now, so mature
nnd digriilied, notwithstanding her di
niinulivo si.e, that nobody in the way
of social intercourse dares, or is imieli
inclined, to treat her as a liuuiau trill..
To see her iu the midst of a round
of calls is to get tho Impression, at lirst
sight, that your eyes havo somehow
suddenly become telescopie inversely,
so exactly is she a miniature of the
conventional dames of ceremonious: so
ciety. She dresses for au afternoon or
formal visiting in a toilet of semi
mourning, suitable in stylo for a quiet
woman of 45 which age she acknow
ledges ami orders from a livery -stable
one of thoso coupes that, as to liv
eried driver ami general appearances
are scarcely distinguishable from pri
vato equipages. Provided with a visit
ing list, and easily commanding an air
of well-bred balance, she lacks only iu
stature to be tho ideal of a middle
aged millionaire's wife. Of course
she attracts staring attention whenever
sho alights, but her manner of silent
reproof is usually effective as a euro
for impudence, and she is able to go
about with far less annoyaueo than
might be supposed. She is now 3 feet
G inches in height, or a foot more than
when she was lirst put 011 exhibition by
Barnuni, and it was only within a few
years that she stopped growing.
"It would not surprise me," she
lately said, "if I should take to grow
ing again tit any time. My case is one
of retarded development, you know,
and 1 may yet catch up with the rest
of you. The majority of the dwarfs
exhibited are really children, phenom
enally small, but by no means the
adult midgets that they are represented
to be, and consequently they grow out
of the profession. That has been tho
ease with many a 'freak,' as tho show
men call them."
The pertinence of the fair, fat, and
forty-inch widow as a topic hero is the
fact that sho has a suitor for her baud.
Tho account current iu her circle ot
acquaintance says that a mino opera
tor, who came eastward a year ago
with a comfortable fortune, began to
seriously woo her soon after making
her acquaintance in this city, lie is a
handsome man of no more than 40,
with cultured taste, good morals, and
about a hundred pounds, his stature
being limited to aa inch or so nroro
than live feet. That lie is deeply in
love with Mrs. Thumb is not doubted
by any of their mutual friends, hut ho
does not seem to have made much pro
gress in capturing the cstiiuablo dwarf.

marry again. Xcio Yvrk Cor. Aew Or-

"Two days before tho unveiling of
tho Perry monument" said Robert Me
Wade to a Cleveland Pram reporter, "I
catno to Cleveland and lirst met Arte
runs Ward. At that timo his reputa
tion was not as extended as it after
ward became, and I was puzzled to de
termine when tho man was joking and
when he was iu earnest. 'Now,' said
Artemus, 'the Academy of Music is
closed, but wo'll go around to the
opera house,' and he led mo a devious
route through streets and alloys to a
store in which somo itinerant side
showman had temporarily located. He
never smiled as ho inquired tho prieo
of reserved seat3 and gravely paid his
10 cents. As wo stepped uisido a
young man was playing a wheezy or
gan. Artemus stopped him, and in a
tone of surpriso asked: 'Y'ou have not
always been engaged in this menial
occupation, surely? llavo I not soon
you in a more exalted position, ono
more befitting your merits?' The
young man was delighted, nnd candid
ly told its that ho had been connected
with a circus, but that it had become
stranded, and that lie was forced for a
time to accept anything that offered.
Artemus gave him a solid chunk of
encouragement, and wo passed on to
w here a flashily-dressed young lady
was coiling snakes around her neck.
It was a most disgusting exhibition.
Artemus immediately doffed his hat
and stood before tho girl in an atti
tude of tho most reverential nston
ishment. Then ho slowly tjaculated:
'Sublime! And I am informed my
dear young lady, that you really insert
tho head of one of those serpents in
your mouth?' Tliojirl proudly replied
that she did. 'Would you kindly
oblige ns?' asked Artemus with a bow.
She" did, and turning to tho crowd
Ward asked: 'Is that not sublime?
Can nnyone now doubt tho superiority
of tho human over tho lower order of
beings? Wonderful! Wonderful!' Tho
girl retired highly elated, and Artemus
Ward turnod his attention to tho mon
key cago. 'That,' said ho, taking my
arm aud pointing to a common monkey,
is a species of jackal. It is a raro
specimen, nnd was specially imported
nt o-roat expense.' This was said loud
enough for the showman to hoar, and
that worthy walked over nnd lcarnodly
coi-rectod Artomua by Baying that tho
littlo monkey was a speoies of ouranr
outang from tho Island of Sumatra, tho
1 only 0110 on exhibition, otc. Artomua
I thanked him kindly nnd yet doubtingly
I for tho correction, nnd as wo passed
out ho extolled tho merits of tho show

A Triio Story. .
Wo were encamped for tho night
near a small creek, with soma low,
stunted under-brush along its banks.
Fa.sturago for our stock was so acarco
that we had to drivo our oxen soma
three-fourths of a milo to get feed suf
ficient for them. Threo of us were de
tailed to guard them for tho first haU
of tho night I being ono of tha three.
I did not much liko my part 0! the
10b. Tho idoa seememed to run In my
icad that thero wero Indians not far
off, and I could not divest my mind of it .
My fellow-sontinols seemed to make
light of my fears, and tried to laugh
me out of thorn. But they did not suc
ceed. For my part I resolved to keep
a strict watch on anything that might
At dusk wo had our suppers eaten,
and, seeing that our guns and pistols
wero in good condition for service, we
repaired to our respective stations,
having tho stock surrounded In a space
sullicient for them to feed upon for the
night, some fifteen or twenty acres in
The placo assigned to me was cover
ed with very rank grass, so that In sit
ting down I was completely concealed
from any eyes that might bo watching.
Tho night was dark except when the
young moon shono out between passing
clouds. I had got tired of pacing
backward and forward, and seated my
self upon a small gopher hllL A pass
ing breeze rustling tho grass aroused
me from a dozo I had fallen into.
Springing to my foot and peering
cautiously around, my eyes wero rivet
cd upon an object that caused my heart
to thump and my hair to nearly raise
my hat off my hoad, for facing me,
not thirty paces distant, was an Indian
yes, suroly, avoritablo Indian, stand
ing iu a half-bent position, with his
right elbow at right angles with his
body and apparently his gun leveled at
In loss timo than it takos to relate it
I had my gun to my shoulder, but be
fore I could liro a dark cloud obscured
tho bright moonlight, and I dared
not pull tho trigger for foar of missing
him, and, lest ho might not miss me, I
squatted quietly down.
In a few seconds, that scorned hours
to me, tho moon shono out bright again.
Then cautiously rising, until I could
see him plainly in tho samo position, I
took a deadly aim and firod.
At the crack of tho gun down he foil.
Surely I havo killed him, I thought,
and sat down to await tho denouement,
which speedily came.
The firing had aroused tho camp,
and soon they came, ready for tho fray.
Explaining tho causo to them, wo all
went forward to seo tho slain Indian
whero he lay, aud oh, horror ot horrors!
1 had shot ono of tho ends oft' tho bow
of an ox-yoko that had boon left stand
ing up to mark tho spot whero tho bal
nnco of the yokes wero we had taken
off from the oxon. I was perfectly
dumbfounded, and I never heard such
screaming and laughing as was Indulg
ed in at my expeuso. I rapidly lost
faith in suspicious ot Indians, and
never heard tho last of Has long as we
wero together, 'i'hoy would not put
mo on guard again, thoy said, for fear
1 might shoot all their yokes to pieces;
and even now, at this distant day, I
have to indulge in a hearty laugh
whenever I think of tho timo that I
killed tho ox-yoko.
Dullish And American Snobs.
There aro hundreds of English snobs
to-day, of recently acquired wealth and
title now baronets mostly who, by
tho giving of grand and lavish entertain
ments, strive to gain notico from and
admission among tho inner circlo who
occupy tho topmost piano. But they
do not seem to know that it is this Very
needless expondituro of money, this
vulgar exhibition of tho length of their
purses, that koeps them out It is
therefore uot to bo wondered at that
when American snobs como over such
people as tho Chamborlaines and tho
Vanderbilts they nover soo tho insido
of a great country-houso, unless it bo
to go through tho plcturo-gallerios,
open to tho public on cortain days of
the woek, liko any other Itinerant In
quest of sights. Nobody invltos them,'
for tho reason that nobody wants them.
Of course, in saying this, I am leaving
out tho prince of Wales and his
satellites. Tho princo associates with
people who amuse him, and he asks no
other credentials than an ability to do
that. But ho is no criterion. Peoplo
who think so mako a great mistake.
As princo of Walos, of course, ho can't
be kept out of any placo, but wero ho
gauged by his behavior and his
morals, his breeding and his habits,
ho would have many a door closed In
his face that must now stay open to'
receive him, should ho chooso to enter.
But overyono isn't tho princo of Wales.
What he does aud survives nobody elso
could do and survive. Peoplo in quot
ing him, seem to forgot this. London
