A handsome [Hotch colly dog in the 1
olee of Dr. J. C. Corlies, in Market and
Mulberry streets, Newark, bha been
trained by his owner, R. B. Willisas,
Dr. Coliea's young lerk, to do things [
whi :h prove him to be an animal of m- 1
usual intelligence. He spells words,
distinguishes colors, and performs arith- I
metical calculations; or else he and his
owner are among the most clever of liv
ing practicer. o.tegerdemaln. Yeser
day a reporter of The uBn called with a
fri.ed at Dr. OUelie's dae to me thei
dog. The friend's miseon was to assist
the reporter in deteting say poadlle
collsion between Mr. Willimu s ad
coat, a large head, and dark, inteligent
eyes. He is incheshigh and is ten
months ol.
"Dr. Oodlie ve Bos to me when be
was three weeks old," said Mr. Williams.
"It would take me a day to tll you how
I taught him to spell and Igure. It 1161

Bo, get on the so."
The collr Jumped upc.n a lounge and
remained there while has owner sot erv

block was peinteda dileemt color.
"Nw call for colas," said Mr. WI.
The reporter asked bos to pick out

when making hdiaace of coloes, and,
later of letters and Aures, the dog faced
his owner. The vistors therehie watchl I
e3 the latter to sstain if he gave Bos
any algnals, bet were umble to detect1
S any communlatio between the two.
Several times wbhe the dog was doing r

When I left America several friends W
mid to me, "Don't forget to call upon
Heshub Chunder Sen while you are in
Caleutta." It was little thought of then
that the Oriental patriarch would be no
longer numbered with the living when
I reached Calcutta. The old proverb
tlat a prophet is never without honor
save in his own country is partly exem
plified in the present case, for while the t
late Minister of the Brahma-Som j has

It was 4 o'clock in the afternoon when h
the company of apostles and mourners
arraaged themselves in order, took up
the Bowery bedstesd with its precious n
burden and started for the cremation d
ghat in Nimtollah. a suburb to the north, p
on the bank of the Hooghly. Many to
hundreds of grief-stricken people follow
ed, their eyes downcast, their feet with- d
out shoes, and their hair dishevelled. a
There was much difficulty at the outset
to preserve order and to form a line, as
each was eager to have a glimpse of the
benignant smile which still played up
on that beautiful face, cold in death
though it was.
The housetops were fil of gazing men
and women, who frequently took up the
chorus of Jai Sachchidananda Hari in be
uomaoe. piteous lamest. Europeans,
Mohammedans, and aindIos all con- do
spired to render homage to the dead a
leader of the New Dispensation. el
Well, it was just dust as the earthly
remains an4 the lowery cot upon which H
they reposed were laid upon a pile of
sandal wood there. The hand rested io
upon the heart, outside 'of the winding thi
sheet. As the body lay upon the pyre, ,
the vast assemblage shouted: "As the be
true, the intelligent, the infinite, and the er
blissful. He manifests himself He is
the peacoul sad merciful God. He is to
one withouta second. He is holy and hi

The Sondon cable correspondent of pe
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat relates this W
strange story: th
The famous deaf and dumb knicknack wi
peddler, who during the pest fourteen th
years attracted so mach attention on r
London Bridge, is deadnd the subject qu
of the latest sensation. He died at South- fo
wark Work Hoe, n the soutir end
of the brtdge Dss 'Ad s 1nfl jis,
he managed to support himself by his
smallales, and securing official and po- mt
lice favor by the gentleness of his de
meanor and the intelligence of his con
duct, he was allowed to occupy thesame
post on the great thoroughfare from year
to year. t
Before his death the peddler beckon- th
ed to his cot one of the hospital attend
ants and terrified him by speaking to
him. When the attendant recovered
from his astonishment the beggar con
femed that his desfnes and dumbness
had been feigned. He said he was a hi
Swis gentleman of fortune, and belong- li
ed to one of the best families in the re
public.
When in youth he was betrothed to a M
beautiful and accomplished girl. He was ke
possemed with the most violent temper, pe
and in alovers' quarrel over a trifle one pc
day he sn wounded the girl by the bitter- in
ness of his invectives that she fell ilL
The reproaches of his friends for his cru- qt
el conduct stung him so he became mel
ancholy from remorse and left home. (
He then resolved to punish himsel: -
He vowed to become a voluntary exile
for twenty Tears and earn his own liv- d(
ing, leave his fortune untouched, keep ta
his relatives and friends inorant of his
whereabouts, and go barehanded and i
barefooted in all weathers during the d(
entire time, and to listen to no one and de
tospeak to no human being during the ti
last ten years of his exile. If he lived w
to complete his vow he meant to return i
home and use his fortune and the re
mainder of his days in making his be- «
trothed happy. proviled she were alive a
and unmarried ti
He had rigidly kept his vow. '-But" a
I he cried before he expired, "my time is at
not quite up, and I must die before it is.
I have been punished as I deserved."
Investigation, so far as it has gone, has
proven that the peddler's story is entire
slv true, and his family in lwitserland
bave been made acquainted with isa T
death.

Washnagton Ratehet. S
One of the heat old-time unpublished eigl
stories on ex-Governor and Congresman tics
Curtin, of Pennsylvania, occurred during but
the war. Governor Curtin was designat- he I
ed in a convention to make a speech, eil
and desired to make a strong, hot, and littl
pertinent attack on the Cameron faction. as I
What bothered him was how to make mo
the sesault mostpositive. Aleck McClure wel
who was in with Curtin, suggested that tha
the best plan would be to have some rep- J
resentative man in the audience ask a ing
question and thus afford an opportunity Die
for an answer covering the project. Mc- doe
Clure selected a well known sporting the
man and "rounder" of Philadelphis, but
"Bufkey" Neale by name. "Buckey" was the
much elated by the honor and prospec- Thi
tive importance of his position, and prios wit
to the calling of the convention attired oft
himself in his best suit of clothes, par- se
chased a tall silk hat, and located him- t
self in the most prominent portion of cal
the hall. The signal for him to make to
the inquiry was preconcerted-it wass a
when Aleck McClure would wipe his shi
fce with has handkerchief. Governor tar
Curtin commenced his speech, continu- i
ed,and was frequently warmly applaud
ed, the audience being enthusiastically o
his friends. "Buckey" was buried in ob- ba
livion to all things except Aleck Me
Clare, upon whom he had his eye fat- ise
ened intensely as those of an Ancient we
Mariner. At the fitting time the hand
kerchief came out and Aleck mop
ped his face. Up jumped "Buckey" and A
pointing his finger Burke-like to Curtin,
m ringing tones called out:
"Governor Curtin. can I ask you a
question?"
"Certainly, sir," was thegratied reply. cal
"Certainly, sir, as many as you like and wa
n trI
"You blank, blank, blank!" howled a
dozen voices. Wateher mean by trying ens
ta, break up th meetin'" ale
And before "Buckey" could explain, a toe
mob was on him. He was knocked
down, the floor swept up with him, and
despite his prayers and protestations
that "Aleck McClure told him to do it" she
was slugged, kicked, and fired out of the for
hall amidst a most tumultuous uproar.
Several hours later "Buckey," hatless, fo
costless, and covered with blood, mud,
and rase was seen skirmishing around
the Continental hotel looking "for that it
sucker Aleck Mick-Lure which put up
such a snide job on me!"

Secretary Lincoln's bitgest boy, aged pr
eight or nine, is already a skillful poli. sn
tician. His name is said to be Abraham fei
but at the Washinaton Navy Yard, where
he spends meet of his time, he is univer- ho
sally Balled lack. He is a jolly, sturdy a
little fellow, who makes friends as easily
as his grandfather did, and very much he
more easily than his father, and heis as
well known in the Navy Yard asthe beU en
that tolls the hour. sh
Justat present Jack Lincoln is devo'
ing himself to the United States steamer en
Dispatch. He goes at it phrewdly. He 9
does not waste time on the officers, al- q
though be is a great favorite amongthem
but is concentrating his atiimpa
the crew. He has won all their hears
already. He is counted as one of them.
They have chipped in and bought him, v'
with the contents ofa hat which no one
of them neglected as it passed, a complete
seaman's ontft.
Standing on the deck in his neatly fit
ting rig, complete from the jaunty little te
cap labelled "U. S. 8. Dispatch" down ye
tothe bottom of his regulation shoes, he clI
is a perfect ricture of Gilbert'sjolly mid- l
shipmite. The other day the Tallapoosa
was preparing to take his father, Secre
tary Chandler and other public men au
d, wn to Fortress Monroe. so
"Well, Jack," said one of the officers m
on the the Dispatch, "I suppose you'll
leave us, now that the Taulapooa has
been fitted op for you?" to
"No, sir,"said little Jack, "the Dispatch d(
is a better boat than the Tallapoosa. I to
wont go."

"There is a curious sight," said a lady,
pointing out of the parlor window of her
home i Morrisania one day last week; p
"but it is a common enough one in this
neighborhood."
The reporter looked, and saw a ish -
peddler flirting with a servant giI across
the road. He was evidently aprosper
ons peddler, anad the servant i seemed
to appreciate the fact. But t was neith
er t peddler ncr the girl who comti
tated the uricus eht alluded to. The
wages, with the thoulhtfl horse be
tween the shadts, stood in the middle of a
the road. A tarpaulin covered the fsh, d
and at three poi, about equidistant,
three ats' tail were visible above the -
cloth, sad the vibratory motion of each I
indicated that the objct at the other c
end was enjoying itsl.
"It is a mast extraordinary thia," mid
the Morriaaisa lady, "but each sh ped-
dler is ollowed by his own particular
cats. They seem to know the sound of
his horn, and trot out of their homes as v
sooniashe blows it Each wagon has I
usually about three cate following it. I

Mexican-I fear you have dashed your
hopes, then. She now considers you an

trusted with any woman's happines.

A handsome, well-dressed woman eln
tered a Chestnut street apothicary shop
yesterday and asked of the pvescription
clerk, in a stage whisper: "Do you keep
rattlesnake oil?"
"No," replied the compounder, in an
audible toe ; "you will have to go to
some druggist in the slums for that com
modity."
"That's the fourth call we have had
to.day for some one of the various voo.
doo medicines," said the clerk turning
to a reporter, "and that means just four
dollars out of the boss's pocket. I ask
ed him the other day to let me mix
up some of the stuff, but he wouldn't
have it. and stamped out, muttering
something about being an 'honest man'
and running a 'reputable business.' "
"But what is rattlesnake oil and what
is it used for?" asked the reporter.
"The ingredients can be most any
thing, but the compound is usually made
from lard, goose grease sad sometimes a
little olive oil, and it is generally used
for rheumatism, fits or for exercising
devils. Of course therein really no such
thing as rattlesnake oil, but to meet the
heavy demand for it a great many drug
gists keep a harmle compound which
they sell as rattlesnake oiL It is used
as an ointment sad under this name it
is almost invariably callel for by the
negroes, although as you havejust seen,
it is occasionally asked for by white wo
men who look intelligent. I can only
explain this on the ground that they be
come imbued with the superstition from
talking over their ailments with their
ored rvants."
"But rattlesake oil," continued the
clerk. becoming interested in his subject,
"is only one of7a scue of these voodoo
medicines and olntmeats. There is al
so agreat demand among the negroes
for dog's fat, cat's fat, 'pomum oil, rab
