account of the fahlure of .. . ,r loes of
an animal which mighl have been pre

worst croaker in the category. These
long-ahod gentry are pretty thick this
spribg. Even some well-to-do farmers
go about their work nost lugubriously,
as though attending a family funeral was
the painful duty of the day-whereas
they should go forth cheerfully to plow,
plant and cultivate, with full faith in
the promised seed time and harvest.
The man who does hua duty promptly
and properly, and adapts himself to sea
son and circumstances, will usually have
little ocesuion for fault-finding when his
cropj are gathered. Therefoie go afield
consdently and manfully, leading and
directing m person, and thus prove your

Visitors who, from curicsity or busi
ness, have called at the White House
must have been impressed by the cour
teous yet systematic manner with which
they were received and escorted through
the mansion. The gentlemen whos
duty it is to receiveall persons coming k
the White House are ColonelE. S. Dens
more. Mr.John T. Rickard and Mr. T
F. Pendel, and they have cccupied their
present positions through the various
administrations since and even during
the war. Mr. Pendel was President Lin
coln's body-guard; saw him to his car
riage the fatal night on which he visiteo
Ford's theatre, and he now has in his
possee*ion the blood-stained coat which
M Lincoln wore on that memorabl
occasion. There is not a public man it
America to-day who does not know, ant
who is not known by, these gentlemen
and the reminiscences of public and so
coal life which they can recount wouk

weary yet exciting years of the war

stood in the executive mansion, welcom

During that long, hot and never to Ib
forgotten summer when President Gar

tion became aware of the deadly mala

White House. Butall through that peri

"I should think he was. Why, time

laid him on the mantel, here in the ves

"Yes," exclaimed Mr. Rickard, "I was
so weak I could not rise alter lying down
without help, and could only walk with
the aid of two canes, and then in a stoop
ing position. Oh, we have been in a
pretty bad condition here, all of us."

"Oh, yes," said Mr. Rickard, "we have

"Have you some secret way of over

"I think we have a most certain way,"
replied Colonel Densmore, "but it is no
secret. You see, about two years ago
my wife besan to grow blind, and I was
alarmed at her condition. She finally
became so she could not tell whether a
person were white or black at a distance
of ten feet. One of hcr lady friends ad
vised her to try a certain treatment that
had done wonders for her, and to make
a onstory shortshe did so and was
completely cured. This induced me to
try the same means for my own restora

me good I recommended it to my aa

Red Rain that Pro.ed Upo Analysis to be
some dart of Animal Liquid.
Raleigh News and Observer.
A few weeks ago there was a shower
of some red liquid in Chatham. The
lace where the phenomenon was seen
is in New Hope township. The fall
came from a cloudless sky, when the
wind was so slight as to be almost im
perceptible. The position of the drops
seen on the fence indicated a very slight
wind from the south or southwest, across
some plowed land. A woman was stand
ing on this Iplowed land near a fence;
along which small pine bushes were
growing. She noticed something falling
between her and tihe ground, saw it
leave a red splash on the sand, heard a
pattering like rain around her, looked
up. but it was all over and she could see
nothing. She was a good deal fright
ened and affected, taking it as a portent
of death or evil of some kind. S. A.
Holleman visited the spot the next
morning (the fall took place about mid
day) and has kindly given the follow
ing facts observed: The space covered
was about fifty by seventy feet and near
ly in a rectangular form. The srops
were of sizes varying from ti-at of a
small pea to that of a man's finger and
averaged about one to the square foot.
Smaller drops were instontly absorlbed
larger ones, with those on the wood,
coagulate J. Some fell in the bushes and
coagulated upon the limbs. Dr. Robin
son, living near, collected some of tle
freshly-fallen material and made certain
simple tests, which satietied him that it
was blood. It even had the smell, he
says, of fresh blood.
Tests were also made by Professor
Venables at the University of North
Carolhna. The sand placed in cold wa
ter gave a brown red solution, which
coagulated on heating. The coagulum,
a ,drty brown, was soluble in caustic al
kalis, giving an indistinct green solution
-treated with an acid solution of mer
cury nitrat', it gave a brick.-red color.
Nitric acid also caused the formation of
this coagulum and gave the character
istic yellow tint on heating. The orig
inal solution in water was brightened in
color, not turning green or crimson on
adding ammonia. On lea vinthe solu
tion two or three days it readily pltri
fled, showing under the microscope a
great swarm of bacteria. Examined by
the micrescope the appearance of small

A lady of Huntington, Pa., dreamed
that her mother, who died thirteen years
ago, came to her bedside, shook her by
.he arm, and told her to get up at once
and open the door. She did so and
found the room filled with coal gas. The
timely apparition saved her life.
