Monkeys Hexling Corn.
Dr. Hopkins does not seem ever to have
heard of the way in which monkeys prepare
to rob a corn field Let us describe it.
When they get ready to start ou their expe
dition, an old monkey, the leader of the
tribe, with a sta.T in his hand, so as to stand
upright more easily, marches ahead on two
legs, thus beiug mire elevated than the
othtrs, so as to see signs of danger more
readily. The rest ftUow him ou all fours.
The leader advances slowly and cautiously.

the party arrives t.t the corn field. He
then assigns the sent .uels to their respective
IKKts. All being now in readiness, the rest
of tho tribe ravage and eat to their heart's
content When they retire, each oue carries
two or three ears of corn along, and from
this provision tho sentinels are regaled on ar
rival at their lair. Hero we see ability to
rule and a wiliiugue to submit to rule; a
thoughtful preparation of meaus to the end
in view, and a rec ignition of the rights
of tho sentinels to be suitably rewarded
at the close of the ex.wditiou. Wherein does
all this differ from a similar foray of a tribe
of savage men ? The o: Uy diJTerence that really

in cadaverous tones, .f he could give him any
remedy that would d.ive away a nightmare

offered it to the d -spairing patient, who

BUFFALO BILL AS A SWELL.
His Experience lu a Clawhammer Wont
Than Fighting Indians.
I met Buffalo Bill last night at the corner.
He was entertaining a crowd of jolly fellows
by relating his experiences in the wild east It
was not exactly the east, either, but it was
east to him. He told of being with SUeridan
during the war. On his return he was in
vited to visit the general at Chicago. He
was in the Garden City two or three days as
the general's guest, and was asked to attend
a society balL It became w hispered around
that Gen. Sheridan and his scout were to be
present, and society was delighted with the
idea of meeting the terror of the west.
On the afternoon preceding the society
event Mike Sheridan asked Buffalo Bill if he
had brought his full dress suit with him.
This staggered the man of the plains, and he
said he guessed he couldn't attend the ball.
The general's brother rented an evening suit
from a furnishing house, and Buffalo Bill got
into it and started for the ball. "I was never
in such a sweat in my life," said William, as
The nerald man hid his note book and as
sumed an intelligent look; I would rather
have plunged into forty Indian battles than
to have entered that ball room. I felt un
comfortable, but I went in with the general's
brother. I was introduced to about one hun
dred ladies and the same uumlier of gentle
men. My pants or rather the pauts which
Mike Sheridan had rented for me were ter
ribly tight, as were also my gloves, which
came through the same channel. I did not
know which garment would break fu st, but
fortunately neither did. I had one dunce, and
this was at tho solicitation of a lady who was
desirous of dancing with a cowbov. I got on
the floor with her, and the music" started. I
was waiting for some one to call off, but there
was uo call, as I had beeu accustomed to. I
never bad such a dreadful time. After I got
through with the dance 1 started for the door,
and put in the ret of t he night at the nearest
saloon, where I had a racket w ith the settler.
1 had changed my clothes, you know, and had
neglected to change the contents of my
pockets. I hadn't a ceul, and the barkeeper
or, as 1 called him then, the settler, saw me
thero in full dress und asked mo what I would
have. I told him whisky, and then he kicked
because I did not offer to pay him for it.
Mike came in shortly afterward" and Used it
with tho luirman. Before this I was em my
good lielmvior, as the general had told me
that he wanted to show people thnt his scout
was a gentleman. Thut was all I wanted
with full dress evening balls, and I was my
self again when I disroU-d ol' ttwso rented

I he mansion, very spacious on the ground
noor, is architecturally quite pleasing. It
stood ujxiu a smooth green, volvety lawn,
spreading several hundred feet down to the
river, which washed it eastern base. The
prospect it commanded was maguifieeut. The
eminence iu the rear was crowned with a
stately forest. Tho estate of ii,5(t0 acres was
divided into many hiiihlv cultivated farms
Much of tho region was still covered with the
forest which the ax of the settler had never
disturbed. Ganio of evory variety abounded
on the hills. Washington inherited this
property from his brother Lawrence, and the
original mansion honse was built by him, but
when it ctuue into tho possession of Georga
Washington he enlarged the mansion and im
proved the property in every way.
Washington wrote regarding its resources,
"No estate in the United States is more
pleasantly situated. In a high and healthy
country, in a latitude between the extremes
of heat and cold, on one of the linest rivers in
the world; a river well stocked with various
kinds of lish at all seasons or the year, and in

Speculation has recently arisen regard
ing the origin of the term of "Uncle

In the war of 1812. between this coun

by a facetious employe of Mr. Wilson.
V hen asked by fellow workmen the
meaning of the mark (for the letters U.
8., for United States, were then almost
entirely new to them) said ''be did not
know, unless it meant Elbert Anderson
and Uncle Sam," alluding to Uncle Sam
The joke took among the workmen, and
passed currently, and "Uncle Sam" him
self being present, was occasionally ral
lied on the increasing extent of bis pos
sessions. Soon the incident appeared in
print, and the joke gained favor rapidly
till it penetrated and was recogBized in
every part of the country, and, says Jobu
Ifrost, the Boston historian, will no doubt
continue so while the United Stales re
mains a nation.
It is now firmly imbedded in the
Mosaic of our language, like "Tippeca
noe," "Log Cabin," and other short but
expressive phrases, which refer to impor
tant events in the history of the republic.
Both "Tippecanoe" and "Log Cabin"
have taken on renewed force and vitality

of two of his great standard remedies, the
principal one known as Warner's Log

cestors in the cure of the common ail

dered them liable in the good old log
The name of Warner s safe cure, like

roiliar as a household world, while it con
tinues to cure the worst forms of kidney
disease, which the medical profession
confesses itself dnable to do.
