It was after midnight. Alnnit tho
thno when deep sleep fa'lcth upon a
mail, but not upon a woman, for Mrs.
Arp's ears are always nwakc it seems
to me. I felt a gentle dig in my sido
from an elbow and a whispered voice
said: "William, William, don't you
hear that?" "What is it?' said I.
Somebody fs in the front piazza,"
jdie said. "Don't you hear him rocking
in tho rocking-chair?" And euro
enough I did. The chair would rock
awhile ami then stop and then rock
again. "Is the gun loaded?" aid she.
"They are robbers, but don't shoot.
don't make a noise, can't you peep out
of the window? Mercy on us, what do
they want to rob us for? Maybe they
come to steal one of tho children. Slip
in the little room and see if Carl is in
his bed. Don't stumble over a cha r,
may be somebody is under the bed."
The roeker took a start and I had an
other dig in my side, "It is tho wind,"
said I. "No it is not," said she.
"There is no wind, the window is uu
and the curtain, don't move. They are
robbers I tell you. Hadn't vou better
give them some money and tell them to
go?" "I haven't got any money,"
said I. "It's all gone." "Lord have
mercy upon us," said she. "William,
get your gun and be ready."
"i gently slipped out of bed and tin
toed to tho window and cautiously
peeped out and there was the pointer
puppy sitting straight up in my wife's
rocking chair and ever and anon he
would lean forward and backwards and
put it in motion. I whispered to Mrs.
Arp to come and see the four-legged
robber, which she did, and in duo time
all was calm and serene.
Lat night there was another sensa
tion iu the back piazza and it was sure
enough feet this time for they made a
racket on tho floor and moved around
lively, and tho elbow digs in my sido
came thick and fast. It took me a min
ute to get fairlv awake and after list en -
ening awhile I exclaimed in audible
language, "goats, Carl's goats," and I
gathered a broom and mauled 'em
down the back steps. "I told you my
dear," baid I, "that those goats would
give us trouble, but I can stand it if you
can. Mill Arp, n Atlanta ConMlutum.
The "Moonshiner. "
I can give no sufficient reason why
the title "Moonshiner" has been con
ferred on our wayward countryman
who persistently evades the law, de
ludes the exciseman, and bereaves the
Treasury. It seems inexplaiuable.
The moonlit glory of the semi-tropical
night is not accessory to the offense. Its
soft light, while bathing the Blue Ridge
in beauty, can not penetrate the shad
owed cliff or gloomy ravine, where the
"still is "set up, ami if It be sup
posed that the benign influence of the
"harvest moon" allures the moonshiner,
like the fairies, to live and work out of
doorsbe it known that the Hyronie
sentiment, "there's mischief in the
moon," is true for him as for other peo
ple. This mischief in the summer con
fuses his chemistry, sours his "swect
niash" and destroys the virtue of his
highly popular product. It is inexcusa
ble, perhaps, to dispel so pleasant and
general a delusion, but there is nothing
of moonshine In the make-up of the
moonshiner. Not until "jocund morn
stands tiptoe on the misty mountain
top," does he begin to despoil the Gov
ernment of ninety centd a gallon, excise
tax on what that great economist, Mr.
Kelly, calls his "corn brandy and ap
ple whisky." They are a singular and
interesting people, who defy the United
States of America to collect a tax on
spirits. They are out of chronological
order. For twenty-one years the Ex
cise Laws have been of force, and yet
the patriotic red men who, with revo
lutionary ardor emptied the tea in Bos
ton harbor, were not more hostile to
the Stamp tax, or tho tax on tea than
the moonshiner to the revenue on his

The Sage and the Mourners A Modern

to Wisconsin, came upon a crowd one
day and observed a general sadness in
"Why this gloom?" queried the old
man, as he laid down his bundle and

" Sober, upright, charitable and given

looked around him.

A Libel on American Ladies.
So it would seem that forty per cent,
of the cigarettes sold in the United
States are smoked by ladies. In Russia,
I should imagine that tho percentage is
even greater; while in France, tier
many and Italy the percentage con
sumed by the fair sex must bo consider
able And why not? If men lind
pleasure in tobacco why should women
be arbitrarily excluded from tho enjoy
ment of the same pleasure? When,
many years ago, I was living in tho
United States, tho young ladies at Wash
ington were given to what they termed
"dipping," a practice far more objec
tionable than smoking. A dipping
party consisted of a iiumbor of girls
squatting on the ground round a bowl
in which there was a thick mixture of
snufl and water. This they used to put
into their mouths with sticks and rub it
on their teeth, the theory being that it
whitened them; but this, of course, was
a mere excuse for what was equivalent
to chewing. London Iruth.

The Strange Fish an Athlete Could Sot
" You look like a likely hefter," said
an old. Maine fisherman in oil skins,
who was unloading a doryful of mack
erel at Deer Island, to a lusty young man
In knickerbockers and a white flannel
"Yes," replied the vouup: man. 'Tm
called pretty strong in tho Skowhegan
" Did you ever lift much fish?" asked
tho old fellow.
" I never saw the fish I couldn't lift."
The fisherman took out a clean ten-
dollar bill and said: "I'm going on
eighty-one years old next muster day,
but 1 11 bet ten dollars even you can't
lift lish that I can."
"Where's your fish?" asked Skowhe-
" Well, I'll tell you. Here's a Hsb,
and he poked among the mackerel, and
pointed to a large, solid, skate-like fish
in the bottom ofthe dory. "Let's see,
it's about five foot up to the dock. I'll
bet you the ten dollars you can't toss
the tish up there."
The Skowhegan athlete thul called
upon, deposited ten dollars with the
owner of the mackerel canning shop,
who had joined the party, and went
down the ladder into the boat, while the
old fisherman climbed upon the dock to
watch the feat.
"Stand back there!" shouted the fish
tosser, rolling up his sleeve. "This fish
might hit you, old man, and knock some
of the blow out of you."
" Heave away," said the man in oil
skins, tipping a wink at tho crowd in
The young man now stepped into the
dory, and polced away the tinkers (small
mackerel) that were sliding about.
Standing on the edge of the boat, ho
stooped down, grasped tho skate-like
fish and lifted, raising It about a foot.
Then, uttering a yell, he staggered a
moment and fell with a resounding
splash into tho water, nearly capsizing
the boat in accomplishing tho feat, which
was received with shouts of laughter
from the dock, the old fisherman fairly
dancing a hornpipe on the rail.
" What's the matter with you?" ht
shouted, as tho unfortunate athlete
scrambled into the dory again, swearing
like a pirate. "Trying to upset the boat,
"Who struck me? Some one gave me
a knock on the neck just as I was lift
ing." "Nonsense," said some one in the
crowd. "You wasn't touched."
"I'll take my oath I felt something
hit me. If this is a skin game I want
to know it." Bracing himself firmly in
the boat he again grasped the fish in
both hands and raised it three feet, and
then fish, athlete and all went over
backward among the tinkers. Man,
fih, oars and bailers were mixed up fot
a moment. At last tho Skowhegan
lifter made a break for tho dock, and,
once upon it, sank down on a pile of
boards. He was as white as a sheet,
and covered with scales from head to
'Send for the apothecary," he gasp
ed, as tho men crowded around.
Why, what's the matter with'you?"
"I've had a stroke," whispered the
victim. "The minute I stooped to lift I
felt it a-runnin' all over me. It's in our
family, but I've got it bad," and here
he rubbed his arms and legs.
"It knocked me clean off my .feet,"
he added, "and my limbs felt like
sticks. Send ;" but here a
roar of laughter broke from the men,
and one of them, seizing him by the
arm, jerked him to his feet.
"You're all right my lad; only next
time don't go fooling around old Amos.
He's a ham nut."
"Here's yer money, sonny," said the
old man, holding out the bill, "you've
"What do I mean?" he continued.
"Why, jest this: You haven't had a
shock of paralysis. They'll knock a
horse if you take em right.
The athleto looked vacantly ahead,
took back his money, and left amid the
renewed laughter of the crowd.
"tfo'll have a yarn to tell the Skow
hegan folks," said the perpetrator of
the joke, "but I hate to hear a man
'blow,' and-thought I'd take him down.
Injured? No, sir-ee. He'll feel stiff for
an hour or so, but it wont harm him.
"What's the use of the shocks? Why,

The latter assumption is probably
correct. The electric apparatus of the
torpedo is its defense, and certainly is a
good one. The eloctno organs may be
compared, to some extent, to the vol
taic pile, and consist of two series of
layers of hexagonal cells, the interven
ing spaces between the plates being
filled with a trembling, jelly-like sub
stance, so that each cell can be com
pared to a Leyden jar. Each torpedo
carries about four hundred and eighty
of these batteries, the whole being equal
in power to about fifteen Leyden jars,
making 8,500 square Inches charged to
the highest degree. The upper side of
the fish is positive and tho lower nega

The Asiatic Floating Gardens.
Among the most remarkable illustra
tions of human energy are certainly the
floating gardens of Kashmir in Eastern
Asia, the more so that they are the
work of an essentially indolent popula
tion. For their creation an expanse of
water about nino miles in circumfer
ence has been utilized, on which mas
ses of weeds, grasses and aquatic plants
grow and become intertwined and en
tangled. These form the soil, as it
were,, on which cultivation is carried
on. Divisions are made in them, they
are cut level with the surface of the
water and then banked ovor with river
mud, Froperly prepared for tho pur
pose this soil is sown with melons and
cucumber plants, and a crop is raised
which is unoqualed in any country in
quantity and quality. These melons
and cucumbers are sold in a good
season at the rate of ten or twenty for
two cents; in dear seasons they bring
two conts apiece. Floating gardens in
Mexico are upon much tho same plan,,
but are usually devoted to the culture
of flowers. Cor. N. Y. Times.

A lady entered the office of a law
firm on Montaguo street and consulted
Mr. P., tho junior partner, as to how
she should act in a difficulty. Sho had
rented part of her house to Mr. W..who
had cleared out, owing her $200 for
rent. He had removed with the inten
tion of going to Bridgeport, and his
luruuuru was on the way to the boat,
which was to leave shortly for the Con
necticut town. Mr. P. immediately
prepared the necessary papers and got
an attachment. A clerk was dis
patched to Vfvt York with directions to
put tne attachment in the hands of the
Sheriff at once and to search the river
front for the furniture. The lady de
parted, and Mr. P. awaited develop
ments. An hour later Mr. W. entered
the lawyer's office. He wore a non
chalant air. Ho carried his hands in
his pockets and a cigar in his mouth.
"i unuerstanu," said he to Mr. 1.,
"that you are trying to seize my prop

That's about the size of it." Mr. W.
said, "and I thought I would Just step
in and ask whether you had got my
property yot?" Then he laughed gaily,
as one who had made a pleasant Joke.
At tnai moment there came a ring at
the telephone. Mr. P. lumped up and
responded with the usual "Hello."
" Who's that?" came back. "I-P ,"
was the answer, Mr. P. recognizing the
voice of his clerk who had gone over the
river with the attachment.
" e ve hunted everywhere." came
through the telephone, "and can't find
Mr. P. turned to Mr. WT. and said:
"What aro you going to do about it?"
" In the first place, Mr. W. replied,
"I want to know whether you've got
my furniture ha, ha!"
"Toll the Sheriff," said Mr. P., with
his Hps to the telephone, "to take the
furniture off the boat and put it in a
"Hold, there," Mr. Wr. exclaimed,
his tone of jubilant banter changed to
one of genuine alarm; "I don't want
the furniture taken off the boat"
"Well, what shall we do?" Mr. P.
said; "you hear my orders?"
The telephone bell rang violently.
Mr. P. put his ear to the funnel and
heard these words delivered with great
distinctness and emphasis: "I-tell-you-
we - haven't-got-the-furniture-we-can't-find-it."
"I don't care if the sheriff's fees are
$50," Mr. P. shouted in return through
the instrument; "the defendant has to
foot the bill. Store tne furniture at
"Look here, Mr. P.," tho defendant
said in a tone of supplication, "what's
the best I can do?
The bell rang again furiously. Mr,
P. put his ear to the tube and tho
speaker said intones wmenjur. r. recog
nized as those of a clerk in the sheriff s
office: "Blank, blank you, what do
you mean? Are you crazy P Don't you

furniture, and we don't know where it
"Just so," replied Mr. P. "Do the
best you can, and damage it as little as
possible. J he defendant will have to
stand the expenses."
"Now don t be severe." Mr. W. said,
almost in despair; "tell me what you
"Pay the full amount due," replied
Mr. P., "and we'll throw off the costs
The bell rang again with louder tones
than before. Mr. P. listened. The
voice that last answered said: "I'll be
blank blanked if I ever came across
such stupidity Hold on and I'll spell
i out to you.'
And then carefully, letter by letter,
the voice spelled out: "We haven't
been able to find the furniture."
The defendant by this time had got
out his pocket book and was counting
out the bills. When he had paid the
$200 Mr. P. went to the telephone and
called up the sheriff's office once more.
"Now then, stupid, what's the mat
ter?" was the reply. "Give the sheriff
directions to let the furniture go," Mr.
Then he sat down and wrote a re
ceipt. The bell went off again liko
mad. Mr. P. cooly placed his mouth
to the telephone and said: "Say, tell
the sheriff to lot the furniture go and
send on his bill for his fees."
Then Mr. P., with a smile on his face,
listened for a reply. "Blank blank
you, you thick-headed ass," came over
the wiresinto Mr. P.'s ear, "we haven't
got the property."
Then Mr. W. quitted the office. Mr.
P. rang up the sheriff's, and received
a complimentary reply. Then it was
Mr. P.'s turn. "While you were bel
lowing over the wires," he said, "the
defendant was by my side, and I had to
make the proper answers to bring him
to terms. Anything stupid or like an
ass in that? Send ovor your bill, the
suit's settled." Brooklyn Eagle.

Some time ago a young gentleman
was about to be married to a widow
who had had several husbands at one
time or another. They were talking
about their approaching wedding when
it occurred to him to remark that he
proposed renting a pew in a fashiona
ble church for their mutual accommo
dation. " I think it would be a good idea U
rent two pews, my dear."
Why, darling, why should we rent
two pews? We certainly will not need
more than one."

After we are married we will go off on

might think wo were strange and ec

The Deaf and Dumb.
To be deaf it not necessarily and al
ways to be dumb, and to make tho
dumb speak is no longer a work which
only miracle could accomplish. " I see
a voice," says Bottom in the character
of Pyramus; "now will I to tho chink to
spy and I can hear my Thisbe's face"
Hearing a face is not, so far as we
know, a mode of perception yet realized,
though the quick apprehensions of the
blind through other senses seem to sug
gest something liko tactual and audible
vision. But seeing a voice is what al
most any deaf person, trained suf
ficiently soon and sufficiently well, can
be taught to do. He may to all intcuts
and purposes hear by the eye. He can
read words by observing the motions of
the lips, as he can read written or print
ed signs; and as ho can imitate the lat
ter by the hand, so he can roproduce
the former by the tongue. Generations
before the instruction of the deaf and
dumb in oral speech was systematized,
there had been remarkable instances of
it, which were treated as miracles as
sports and marvels of ingenuity to be
wondered at, rather than as examples
to be imitated.
The case of the younger brother of the
constable of Castile, where Sir Kenelm
Digby saw when ho accompanied
Charles I. (then Prince of Wales) to
l pain Is well known, He was and had
ben from birth so deaf that he could
not hear if a gun were shot off close by
his ear, and that he had been dumb un
til he was taken in hand by an intelli
gent and hospitable priest. "Ho would
repeat after anybodie any hard word
whatsoever, which the rrinco tried of
ten, not only in English but by making
some Welchman that servod his high
ness speak words of their language,
when it was so perfectly echoed that I
confesse that I wondered more at that
than at all tho rest, and the master him
self would acknowledge that the rules
of his art reached not to produce that
effect with any certainty." Why it
should be harder for a Spaniard to read
Welsh words than English on the lips
of a foreigner may seem a question of
some difficulty. Sir Kenelm Digby had
probably the feeling that Englisli, after
all, is tho natural language of human
beings, though he does say something
about the guttural sounds of the Welsh
tongue not being obvious in the motions
of hps. He goes on to note that this
young Spanish noblo "could converse
currently in tho light, though they
talked with whispers never so softly,
and I have seen him at the distance of
a large chamber's breadth say words
after one that I, standing closo by tha
speaker, could not hear a syllable of.
But, if ho were in the dark, or if ono
turned one's face out of his sight, ho
was capable of nothing one said." It is
a melancholy thing that this curious
proof of what could be done for the deaf
w as for generations rather viewed with
barren wonder than as an example to
be imitated. For a long time the harsh
maxim, "Surdus natus mutus est, et
plane indiseipliriabilis," ruled in law
and social usage. hen the attempt
was seriously made to instruct the deaf
and dumb tho false track of finger
speaking was entered upon, and until
recently it has been followed. To teach
them to read spoken sounds on the lips
and to enunciate them, thus entering
into the general intercourse of society,
was deemed an impossible task in most
cases and a barren feat in others. The
mistake is now recognized. The con
gress at Milan three years ago decided
in favor of the purely oral system, and
the members the of conference at Brus
sels have chiefly had to consider tho
methods of giving effect to it. London
The Elephant Seal.
Almost the first voyagers who sailed
Into the then unknown seas surround
ing the south pole took back to Europe
stories about a gigantic seal much
larger than the elephant, and, like that
animal, furnished with a trunk. But
the people had begun to doubt the sto
ries of travelers, and consequently not
much reliance was placed on these va
When the real Robinson Crusoe, whose
name was Alexandor Selkirk, was found
on his island of Juan Fernandez and
taken home to England, he also told
about the giant seal, and gave such mi
nute particulars concerning it that its
existence was no longer doubted. Still,
it was not until a century later, w hen
the report of Captain Cook's voyages
was publ'shed, that any real interest
was manifested in the sea-elephant, or
elephant seal. This report said that the
oil and skin furnished by the animal
were valuable, and that statement was
hint enough fat one or two enterprising
merchants. Without more ado they
fitted out a few whaling ships, and sent
them to the southern seas to procure the
oil and skins of tho hapless creatures.
Among these ships the trimmest and
swiftest was the "Mary Ann."
How many elephant-seals were slaugh
tered by the crew of tho "Mary Ann" is
not known; but it is recorded that,
within twenty-five years of her visit to
Georgia Island, there were killed on
that island alone over one million two
hundred thousand animals, or about one
thousand every day during the season.
How many millions were killed alto
gether can never be known, but it is
certain that the killing did not cease
until the elephant-seal was almost ex
terminated. It will interest you to
know that two young elephant-seals are
now to be seen in the Zoological Gar
dens at Philadelphia.
Tho j'oung sea-elephant is as big as a
small man when it is born, and in eight
days it will grow four foet longer and
one hundred pounds heavier. That is
pretty quick growth; but to reach a cir
cumference of eighteen feet and a length
of thirty feet in throe years, it has need
to grow quickly.
Penrose, in nis account of the elephant-seal,
says that his sailors used to
mount upon the backs of the animals
as they were in the water, and race
with each other, making tho animals
swim by spurring them with their knives.
This story is not precisely doubted, but
It is not believed, either. The elephant
seal always comes ashore, if possible,
when about to die, which seems some
what odd, when the water is the ele
ment in which it is most at home. There
it is surprisingly swift and agile, and,
indeed, it is so comfortable there that it
sleeps on tho rocking waves as quietly
