A FEMALE FLOGGER.
af Bnrtaltty For
laa Ko Law.
Mr. Labonchere has been compelled
again to expose a horrible scandal, which
there is no law in England to suppress.
It is the work of professional floggers of
girls, boys and men. The establishment
of the woman who advertises her aery.
ices at terms from 5 shillings is described
in Truth as tbe result of a call by pros
pective clients. The flogger showed what
she frankly called the torture room.
There is an iron bedstead, on which, she
explained, the victim is extended across
a pillow. On either side are straps in
tended to meet across the body and hold
tbe victim down, while the arms and
legs are fastened to tbe fonr legs of the
bedstead by contrivances like handcuffs.
Gags and pads used to stifle the cries of
the victim were also produced, the pads
being ns6d for the young girls who are
liable to bite their lips nnder tlio tor
ture, and thus disfigure themselves per
manently. Among the instruments of flagellatta
exhibited by the woman were two cat o'
nine tails, one consisting of thongs of
leather and th9 other of knotted cord.
about 16 inches long. There was also a
cat made of a leather strap slit into
strips about a foot long. Birches of or
dinary pattern were also produced, these
being preserved in brine to keep them
supple. The flogger explained that 6be
no longer received children at ber house,
but treated them at their own homes,
taking her appliances with her. Tbe
torture room was reserved for big girla
Tho last tima Mr. Labouchere ex
nosed this interesting industry he found
it impossible to check it by law. The
neighbors, however, made the place so
hot for the flogger that she had to move
several times. Her latest address is
printed in Truth with tho suggestion
that the same remedy be applied again.
THE THIRTY YEARS TRADITION.
Tbe Death of Mr. O'Neill and Defeat oi
. Mr. Bolman Saved the Record.
It was fate which defeated Represent
ative Holinan. The venerable Indianiau
essayed to do what no ouo before him
bad accomplished. The tradition that
limits scrvico in the house of represent
atives to 30 years will receive increased
respect from Mr. Holman's defoat. At
the beginning of tbe present congress
Mr. Holman and Mr. O'Neill of Phila
delphia had a conversation about this
tradition. Mr. O'Neill asked Mr. Hol
man what ho thought of it Mr. Hol
man smiled at tbe man who was "fa
ther of tbe house" and told bimhwa8
all right for half a dozen terms. Mr.
O'Neill shook his bead and reminded
Mr. Holman of tbe fate that had over
taken Keller, Randall and others just
when it seemed that they were sure to
break tho record. Mr. Holman afterword
told of this conversation and added:
"I guess O'Neill will break the record.
He is strong and hearty."
Before tho year was out Mr. O'Neill
was dead, and tho tradition had received
one more proof of its weird power. Mr.
Holman then became "father of the
house." Had ho been elected this time
he would have exceeded the traditional
SO years limit ns soon as he passed the
3d of next March. But he was defeated.
It will be a long time before tho tra
dition will be tested again. With Mr.
Holman tho last of the members uearing
the limit disappears. Mr. Bland goes
out of congress with 23 years to his
credit. Sir. Cannon of Illinois and Mr.
Culberson of Texas will have served 20
years each on tbe 3d of next March.

A MYSTERIOUS HORSE BLANKET.
It lias a Fine Crop of Hair Already, aad
Growing; la Still Coins; On.
Mr. William H. Forbes of Spencer
Corners, Fulton county, is tho possessor
of a very old horse blanket, which dif
fers from its fellows in that it has a
well defined coat of hair in various
stages of development, alive and grow
ing. While possibly of a finer and silkier
texture, it is an excellent reproduction
of a horse's coat, which the blanket
Mr. Forbes first discovered this pccnl
iarity in October last when ..iking it
down from the peg in the barn, where
it had hnng undisturbed during the sum
mcr. Ho was naturally greatly aston
ished to discover two patches of grow
ing hair, one on either side, where it
had boon exposed to the light and air.
Tbe hair is of a bright bay color and is
now fully an inch in length. Probably
the most peculiar feature of the affair.
however, is the fact that the hair has
spread from the two patches until it has
entirely covered the blanket with a fine
growth, varying in shade and color. It
has not only been subjected to a critical
inspection by several reputable men,
but has undergone a microscopic test by
two prominent physicians, of whom Dr.
Henry C Finch of Brodalbin makes
affidavit, before Judge Gardner, "that
the hair, now growing on tbe blanket is
true hair and that the roots of the same
