There is said to be an expeit arch
cry player in England who is absolute
ly blind. A boy behind the target
"rings the bell, and his sense of hear

where to aim his shaft.
Nicholas Murphy, watch on the Bos

day with a gold-headed cane by his
employers for his bravery in having
saved 100 persons from drowning dur

By the naval manoeuvres now fin
ished in the Irish Sea it appears that
"the average speed of even the best
ships w as much below the figure given
m any authoritative naval work." A
Cunard steamer ran by them as though
they were anchored.
The French government is said to
have ordered 20,000 portable cooking
stoves for camp use for the army.
The inventor, on a test, served up a
dinner of three courses for thirty per
sons at a cost for heating and cook
ing of les than four cents. He usei
steam as the basis of his heat.
"Trusts are private affairs," says
Mr. Blaine. God forbid! Trust are
public diseases. Organizarions of
men for coercion or boycotting are
condemned by the law as criminal
ban-lings. Organizations of capital to
coerce public opinion natural prices
and common laws are trebly criminal.
Mr. Blaine has enunciated a principle
under which he will be buried.

Flora Paulsam, of Boston, was re
lieved of her .purse contamgn $180
the other evening by a highwayman.
Unworaanlike, though she darted after
the scoundrels caught him severals
squares distant and, no twithstanding
he and several pals then set upon and
beat her, the gritty Flora held on to
the thief until assistance arrived in
the person of a police captain. The
latter, with the aid of another officer,
landed the prisoner in jail, but not un
til after a seere struggle in which the
pals took an active part.
Ten years ago a Mrs. Beasly, of
Philadelphia, stood looking at a num
ber of coopers making barrels. She
saw the .wist amount ot labor entailed,
the great cost of production, and the
number.of hands that a barrel passed
.through before completion. The idea
occurred to her then that she could
lmprovempon the tedious and expen
sive process she had carefully noted,
and a machine recently invented and
patented by her, which is now in suc
cessful operation at Camden, N. T.
proves that she had not mistaken her
powers. Mhis machine, which the
Philadelnhia Record announces is
distincd to revolutionize the barrel
manufacturing business, can with the
help of six men, turn out as many
barrels in in a day as sixty men can
make by the old process, and ot one-
quarter of the cost.

Friday morning for home. Friday
afternoon tho proprietors ol tho hotel
received a telegram stating that Bal,
lingsloy had lost $1000 in tho hotol.
The clerk made a careful search, and
the tuonoy was Anally found between
tho slats of tho bod and mattress.
It was done up in a strange fashion.
Around a long leather purso that con
tained tho ruonoy a pieco of a coA'eo
sack had been sowed tightly, nround
this was wrappod a towol, which was
also tightly sewed, and the whole was
bound up In another towol, loosely
stitched together. Mr. Billlngsley
arrived this morning and got his
money. Ho explained that his wife had
done it in that manner so that she
could wear it for a bustle.

A Demagogue got among the Bees
and Alarmed them by the Statement
that the Peasant who had long cared

This was in the Spring. A Dele
gation of Bees at once waited upon
the peasant and made a Vigorous
Kick. He had litte to say in replj,
but as the summer came on there was
great Excitement in the Hives.
"I have been all over the Farm,"
announced one, "and there's not a
leaf of CIoer!"
"And not a stalk of Buckwheat!"
added a second.
"Not a thing from which we can
extract Honey!" put in a third.
It was therefore Resolved to call
upon the Peasant and Inquire why
those thing were thus. He received
the Delegation Kindly and replied:
"MyJFriends, I Furnished the Hives
and planted the Clover and Buck
wheat, and you worked the stock up.
While I took a part of your store to
Requite me, I always left you plenty
to Live on. As you were dissatisfied
I have withdrawn my clover seed and
buckwheat and planted corn and shall
deal no more in in Honey."
"But we can't eat Corn!" cried the
"Ah! no; bat that is not my con
cern. Go t6 the Demagogue."

He had gone to the Fowls to warn
them than in laying Eggs for their

FIRST START RtGHT.
Theii Yon May Occupy tho Presidential
r.rerv Ainprtcon routh has been told rc-
pcatlly by his parxnto anil Ills teachers that
he mint be a good boy and an oxomplory
young man In order to bocomo tho president
of tho United States. Thero is nothing new
in thli statement, and I do not print it be
cause 1 regard it In tho light ot a "scoop."
But I deslro to go a trlflo further, and call
the attention of the American youth to tho
fact that ho must begin ot a much earlier
dato to prepare himself for tho presidency
than has been generally taught. He must
not only acquire all tho knowledge within
reach, but guard his moral character night
and day through life, or at least up to tho
tlnlo of his election, but ho must bo ft self
mode wan, Bnd ho should also uo tho utmost
care and dtscretlou in tho seleUion of hU
In the first place, a boy may thoughtlewly
e'ect tho wrong state or even a foreign
country as a site for bis birthplace, and then
the most exemplary life will not avail him.
But hardest of all, perhaps, for one who as
pires to tho highest ofllce withli the gift of
the people Is the selection of a houim in
which to be born.
Take, for Instance, tho residence of An
drew Jackson. His name appears more fre
quently today In papers for which ho never
subscribed than that of any otter president
who has passed away.
Andrew Jackson was a poor boy whose
father was a farm laborer who died before
Andrew's birth, thus leaving tlio toy per
fectly free to choose the site of his birth
place. ne did not caro much nbout books, but fojt
confident on the start that ho had chosen a
good birthplace, and thorefore could not bo
dofeated in Ills race for tho presidency. Hero
in this house A. Jackson first saw the light
Here, 6n tlio back stoop, was where ho was
ei)t sorrowing at night to wash his chapped
feet with soft soap lf ore his mother would
allow lilm to go to led. Here Andrew turned
tho grindstone In the shed, while a large,
heavy neighbor got on and rode for an hour
or two. Hero tho future president sprouted
potatoes In tho dark and nolsomo cellar,
wliile,other boys, who cared nothing for the
presidency, drowned out woodchucl.s and
sncKed eggs in open defiance of the pulpit
nnd press of tho country.
And ybtjWhSt a quiet, peaceful, unosten
tatious home, with Its little windows opening
out upon tho snow In w inter and to I nro
ground in summer! How peaceful It looks!
Who would believe that up In the dark cor
ners of the gable end it harbors a large iron
gray hornets' nest w 1th brocaded hornets in
It) And still It is so quiet that, on hot sum
mer afternoons, while- tlio bees aro buzzing
around the petunias nnd tho regulir'brcatli

Into a deep nnd oppre'sivo repose, tho old
hen, lulled iuto a ben-o of falso security,

out of several ov crlastmg flowers, samples a
few aruislied aoorns on an ornamental pho
tograph framo in tho corner, and then goes
out to tho kitchen, here sho bites into tho
dough that is set' behind tho stov e to raise.
Hero in this quiet homo, far from ffco en
ervating pousso cafo and corto blanche,
where ho had pork rind tied on the outside of
bw neck for sore throat, and pepper, New Or
leans molasses nnd vinegar, together with
other groceries calculated to discourage Ill
ness, were put inside, he laid tho foundations
of his future greatnet
Later on tho fever of ambition camo upon
him, and ho taught I school, where tho girls
snickered at him ami' the big boys went so
far away at noon that tbgy couldn't hear tho
bell, nnd were glad of ft, and came back an
bour later with water In boih ears and craw
fish in their pockets.
After that ho learned to bo a saddler,

way and showing how it happened that most

An Ancient Roll.
Strange tlfengs frequently happen lght at
homo whilo wo are looking in every direction
for novelties. A few days ago a Lincoln
citizen opened a roll of butter wblch bad been
purchased at a grocery, and discovered
therein a small tin box which was found to
contain a pieco of paper bearing the follow
ing written in a neat feminine band: "I am
a girL18 years of age, good looking and an
exceflentJioasekeeper. Should this be found
by some unmarried Christian gentleman, ho
