CHINESE LUCK STICKS.

"Chinaman, uim no flaideo; him gotta no
That was tb authoritative statement mad
by "Sheriff" Tom Lee, the wary old leader of
the Mott stneef Celestials.
Tom Lee bad been asked about the nrrete
rioaa domon of the elements to whom every
orthodox Chinaman offers daily propitiatory
The heri(T himself shortly after daylight
the other morning wended his way to the
Jon house at No. Id Mott street and made
numerous offerings, and then shook the "luck
That isn't what the Celestials call them,
bat that is tbe meaning. There are 100 of
them, about tbo size of lead pencils, tapering
to a blunt point at either end. Each stick
has a number on it. AU are held in a little
rnorrnns on a stick.
The hopeful Chinaman takes the case in
both hands and shakes it vigorously until one
of the sticks drops out. This sometime means
a shake of forrr or fivo minutes and beads of
perspiration stand on tbe shaven forehead of
the son of Cathay before luck comes. And
he dont look upon it as chance, either, butju
the personal feeling of tbn gods toward him.
When the stick drops out be seizes it eagerly
and goes to the wall where hang a great num
ber of red rice paper circulars. Each bears a
number and a proverb from Confucius or
some other pig tail philosopher of the olden
The Inscription on the paper bearing tbe

socially, financially, etc., of the holder until
the next anniversary of Fang Yo Wong.
Secretary Huio kin, of the Presbyterian
Chinese mission, who, in addition to a large
amount of native intelligence, hold a hard
earned college diploma, told a reporter many
curious superstitions of the common people
in China, most of which their Mott street
"Chinamen," he Mid, "see the work of a
good or evil spirit in almost every occur
rence. Tbt-y also txlieve that thnee innumer
able gods, mysterious and otherwim, can be
Influenced or rropitmtM by various sacrifices
"They burn prayer pHpers and Joss sticks
and food almost every day, and scatter rice
and do various other things as foolish as
your peoplewbo throw salt in the fire when
they upset the cellar, to avoid a quarrel"
The reporter hail to admit the similarity,
and Iluie Kui, having scored on poiut, con
tinued: "Chinamen believe that one eod rules the
thunder and a different god take it iu charge
each year. Their almanac shows which irod
is on duty in the thunder department, and at
in nrsc launder storm of the season every
on offers a sacrifice. If tho thunder is very
heavy, they say that (be thundur god is very

and kill their pigs in the i i-ht tune of the
The secretary had scored another good
natural point, but he wasnt through.
TOM LIE 19 a 0I36KSTEB.
He stated that tbe Chinese caloudar is full
of unlucky days, and every Chinaman about
to make a journey, or commence any busi
ness undertaking, or get married, consults bis
almanac about the day, and if it is ruled by a
bad god he changes his date.
"It la very much like the belief in unlucky
Friday of your people," said tho bland secre
tary, "except there it is general and no one
hides his belief in it
"When a man is sick," he continued, "it is
because some bad spirit haw control of him,
or else he lias offended the greater gods. So
they doee him with stuff to drive out the bad
spirit and sacrifice chickens and rice and
other things to the good, and if the man has a
pretty good constitution he may live through
it, and that is more than be does sometimes
with your doctors."
Again Mr. Huio Kin's almond eyes twin
kled with merriment at bis point, and then
"Tbe Chinamen in this city nearly all re
tain these superstitions. Even when they
embrace Christianity tbo old, fearful super
stitious feeling remains, and involuntarily
some time they will perform some propitia
Mr. Huio Kin said that the Chinese are the
most superstitious pso;le in the world, as
they must naturally be, believing, as they do,
that each one of their 3,000 gods take a per
sonal interest in each individual Chinaman,
and rewards or punishes him according to his
own varying mood or whim.
But Sheriff Tom Lee wouldn't admit thlT

"I am not prepared to say whether mar
riage in general is a failure, but runaway
marriages certainly are In one sense," said an
old physician yesterday. "They are a suc
cess in being imitated by several generations
mat follow. .Many years ago an elopement
was a matter of great publio interest, and
was usually accompanied by soma thrilling
incidents, such as a pursuit by the angry
father and possibly a pitched battle between
the young men and the girl's male relatives.
In this way some of the old time runaway
matches were impressed on my mind. You
would be surprised if I were to show you
the record of the descendants of some of these
gay old couples. It seems to be a family
trait in many instances, and the mania runs
through several generations. I know one
gentleman who has never forgiven one of his
children for eloping, and yet be ran off with
his bride thirty years ago, and there have
been three or four similar escapades In the
same family. His descendants will keep on
running away until the mania wears itself
out; It seems hereditary, and toe children
can no more help running away than they
can beip looking like their parent." Louis
Saved by Lying Down.
A Kenans paper relates that a cattle raiser
near Bevery went out into his feed lot re
cently on foot. The cattle became Infuriated
and made a rush at him. He fell flat on tbe
ground and remain od perfectly quiet. The
mad, bellowing herd came up and tramped
round and round, often smelling of bis body,
but never attempting to injure it After
four hours in this position some men noticed
the peculiar action of the herd and went in
and rescued him. Chicago Uoraid.
Victoria's will was made In 187C, engrossed

others are distributed among the members of

The Examination Grind.
Some of the papers made a great ado about
the death of a young lady attending the high
school, which, it was alleged, was doe to
overwork incident to examinations. Prompt
denials of this allegation were sent in. I am
not prepared to say which was which, but 2
do think It is strange that half the scholars,
and teachers, too, are not killed by the ex
amination grind. St Paul Pioueer Press.
A Kew Ce for Ladle Hate.
A trade journal states that a now use is
being made of the high crowns of ladies' Lata.
"Ladle who dont mind being considered
eccentric lift up the back of their hata when
out shopping, and shove into the crown such
trifles as hairpins, lace, needles, gloves and
thread." The idea may be oommended to the
lady kelptomaniao and the lady smuggler.

The question is inspired as much by
affection as curiosity, since through his
instrumentality hundreds of thousands,
in both hemispheres, have been restored
to health and happiness.
Hon. H. H. Warner, then, is a leading
and honored resident of Rochester, not
only, but a prominent and influential cit
izen of the United States. On several
occasions chosen by his party as a na
tional delegate to nominate a president of
tbe republic, be has been a member of
tbe republican state committee and of its
executive committee. He is a member of
the American Institution for the Ad
vancement of Hcieuce; president of the
Rochester chamber of commerce; a suc
cessful and upright business man. He
has given away fortunes in charities.
The celebrated and costly Warner ob
servatory of Rochester was conceived,
endowed, and is maintained by him. His
munificent prizes for the discovery of
comets has been at once the wonder and
delight of the scientific world.
The yellow fever scourge in the South,
tbe Ohio floods, the fire disasters of
Rochester and other cities awakened his
profoundest sympathies and in each in

An incident led bim into the manufac

years ago with what the obleat physicians
termed fatal kidney disease, he was
miraculously restored to health by what

merits of so potent a remedy, .and the
consequence is that to-day he has im

At the Theatre.
Miss Kate Caslleton and company gave
to a large representation of the Rnrk
Island theatre going public.a most excel
lent performance at Harper's theatre 8t
urdsy evening. "A Paper Doll" is much
more interesting than most of the light
comedy productions of the day, in that
there is in it a faint idea of a plot, and
though one may often lose sight of it, it
chases along after some laughable inci
dents, some entertaining music and a deal
of harmless but genuine original fan. It
is much to say in praise of Miss Castleton
that she has gathered about her a much
better company of frolickers than she
formerly thought necessary to ber suc
cess with tbe public. In Bertie Coote,
who is as nimble aa a jumping jack and
very much more flexible, she ha a valua
ble assistant, his songs and capers provok
ing do small proportion of tbe laughter
throughout the evening. Miss DeaveB.
who represents tbe extreme dudine with
a multiplicity of outre signs and antics, is
a right merry burlesquer, and contributes
much to the entertainment of the audi
ence. Miss Castleton has returned
wisely to the demure dress of tbe Qua-,
keress, and the bewildering kick of the
coquette that first gave her popularity,
when she sang the song she has revived,

A Des Moines woman complains that
her pastor never looks at her when he
preaches, but devotes all his attention to
tbe sinners on the other side of the church.
For this reason she says that bis sermons
do not have the moral effect on her which
tbey ought to have. On the other hand,
a Chicago woman recently complained
that her pastor invariable looked at her
when he was preaching, especially when
he denounced humbugs and hypocrites,
and she wanted to know if it wasn't an
outrage to treat respectable pew holders
in this way. When the clergyman finally
heard of. her grievance ,he laughingly ex
plained that he wasn't looking at the
woman at all whin she thought he was,
but at a certain pillar behind her, the
sight of which, for. some mysterious
reason, always seemed to clarify his
Barring on a Jury.
If there is anything that makes the ordin
ary citizen, a business man with a regular
line of daties to attend to every day in the
weak, disgusted, it is to be summoned to
serve on a Jury. To be sure, there are quan
tities of people who jump at the chance, but
unfortunately they are the ones who are not
wanted. But the people who are wanted,
and are mad about it, make all sorta of ex
cuses, good and bad, to get out of serving.
The way Judge Hicks gets around them Is
peculiar, but effective in the extreme. "Gen
tlemen,'1 he will say, "you are just the kind
of men we want, solid citizens, with hard
common sense, leading men of the commun
ity," etc. And with further kindly blandish
ments he proceeds to work upon their self
esteem until they are only too glad to sacri
fice any interests whatever to the good of the
publio. There is just everything in knowing
how to manage men. St. Paul Pioneer Press.
