Missouri river, with office at Chicago, in

of the ladder. He entered the rail

years be was a clerk in the general ticket
office; seven years chief clerk in the gen
eral passenger and ticket agent's office,

the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, it is
no more than just that be should become

Tomorrow evening the great modern
spectacular drama, "Passion's Slave,"
with its superb scenery and splendid cast
of characters is to he presented at Har
per's theatre. Tbe Rochester Democrat
"Passion's Slave" is a strong melodrama
with much of the peculiar interest attach
ing to that class of productions. Some of
the tableaux are exceedingly effective,
notably tbe rescue of the hero from the
sea after his escape from prison at the
close of tbe second act.
On Saturday evening Little'a "World"
combination is to appear. Of it the
Pittsburg Commercial-Gazette says:
"The World" is the cleanest and most
easily comprehended of all spectacular
dramas, and the scenerv and mechanical
effects are most wonderful and realistic,
in fact it has reached that condition of
success that renders criticism superflu
ous. Tbe Mrhool Board.

In Town and Hamlet
The-seeds of intermittent and bilious re
mittent fever germinate and bear evil
fruit. No community has altogether es
caped it. In populous wards of large
cities bad sewage causes it, and in their
suburbs stagnant pools in sunken lots
breed it. There is at once a rem
edy and a means of prevention. Its
name is Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters, which is, without preadven
tare, the most potent antidote in exis
tence to the malarial virus. Fortified
with this incomparable, saving specific,
miasmatic influences may be encountered
with absolute impunity. Disorders of
the stomach, liver and bowels, begotten
by miasma-tainted water, or any other
cause, succumb to the beneficent correc
tive named, and rheumatic, kidney and
bladder troubles are surely removable by
its use when it is given a persistent trial.
The cattle in tbe vicinitv of West
phalia, Kan ., are "dying of brain fe
ver." In the pursuit of the gooa things of
'his world we anticipate too much; we
eat out tbe heart and sweetness of world
ly pleasures by delightful forethought of
them. The results obtained from the use
of Dr. Jones' Red Clover Tonic far exceed
stomach, liver, kidney and bladder
troubles. It ia a perfect tonic, appetizer,
blood purifier, a sure cure for ague and
malarial dlseaaee. Price, 60 cents, of

Who Was Robert Adair?
Robert Adair was a young Irishman, known
in 1-ondon in the early part of the lust ccu
tury as "tlio fashionable Irishman." Ho was
brought up us a surgoon, but at an early
periixl wont to Eugland to push hU fortunes.
Near Holyhead, jicrceiving a earriuge over
turned, ho run to render asmstaui-e. The
occupiuit of tbe carriage was a huiy of
fashion, who hearing that Aduir was a sur
goou, invited liiin to accompany her to Lon
don. On arriving at her house she gave
Aduir a fee of ouo hundred guineas and a
general invitation to call. It was during one
of these visits that he met Lady Caroline Kop
pel, daughter of the second Earl of Albemarle
aud of Lady Anne Lenox, daughter of the
first Duke of Richmond. Lady Caroline at
the first sight of the Irish surgeon foil desper
ately in lovo wit h him, and her emotions were
so violent aud so sudden as to attract tbe at
tention of the whole company.
Everything was done to divert, her mind
from her love travels, suitors ami amuse
ments of all kind but in vain. Finally the
parents seeing thoir daughter's health yield
ing to the strain consented to the marriage.
When Lady Caroline was taken from London
to Bath that she might 1 serrated from her
lover, sho wrote, it is said the song of "Robin
Adair," and set it to a ilaintive Irfc.li time
she had heard him sing. Her married life
was short, but happy; she died of consump
tion after giving birth to threo children. On
her deathbed she requested Adair to wear
mouruing as long as be lived, and ho scrupu
lously did so, except ou the king's nnd queen's
birthdays, when his duly to his sovereign re
quired him to uppear at court in full dress.

A Fair Proposal.
A business man in Tortland, Oro., prinU
the following notice in The Oregnnian:
"AVe would like to inform the gentlemen of
tho light fingered persuasion, us our safe lias
now been drilled four times, that o never
leave a cent in it, as wo deposit all money
taken in after 3 p. in. with a tlrm in this city.
tVe would lie quito willing to give the
larttos iu question the combination of the
safe, to save them tho trouble of drilling any
ruoro holes, as, now having four, we do not
know bow long it will bo water proof, to say
nothing regarding burglars or fire.
"Wo do not bear the aforesaid gentlemen
any ill will, as all men should love ouo an
other; hut the writer will bo happy to meet
them at any time they may appoint after 9
p. m., when they are on the 'burgle,' ami will
open the safe and donate ull cash therein to
tho 'Burglars' home,' nnd pledge his word of
honor to protect them during the meeting
from the stern eyo of tho law totholiest of
his ability. "New York Sun.
The OrHM.-linpper and the Ants.
A Colony of Ants, not being exactly Satis
fied with their leader, cast aliout to find an
other, and when tho duy of Election came a
Grasshopper was Elevated to the place by a
Large Majority. Tho Old Ones shook their
heads, but the Young Ones Enthusiastically
"His Uncle left him a Hundred Thousand
Dollars, and he must bo all right."
Iu about three months, however, the Grass
hopper had so ilismanged Affairs that the
Ante were compelled to Bounce hum or go
out of the Industry Business. Tho Deposed
leader went to tho Sago for Consolation, but
was promptly answered:
"The roeuesbion of Money doesn't always

A Close Relation.
It is related that Sir Nicholas Bacon was
about to pass judgment upon a man who had
been guilty of robbery, at that time punish
able by death; but tho culprit pleaded for
mercy on the ground that he was related to
the judge. "How is thatf" he was asked.
"My lord," was the reply, "your name is
Bacon, niiao is Hogg, and hog and bacon
havo always been considered akin." "That
is true," answered Sir Nicholas; "but as hog
is not bacon until it has hung, until you are
hanged you are no relation of mine." San
Toys Made of Old Corks.
Curious toys may be made of cork One of
those is tbe well known little tumbler, such
as is generally constructed of pith ; but cork,
especially if it be hollowed, will answer the
purpose. Make the puppet of three or four
corks; shape and point it as skillfully as you
can, aud gluo to the feet, or under them, a
hemisphere of lead. When thrown into auy
position the figure of course rights itself and,
like a cat, always falls ou its feet. It is quite
possible to mako a cat also of pith or cork
which will, indeed, always fall tijxm its feet.
Her New Kunilay School Song.
A very little girl in tho infant class of one
of our city Sunday schools came home last
Sunday and told her mother that the teacher
had taught them a new song. On expressing
a wish to hear it, tho mother was much as
tonished at the following sentence, which was
all the child' could rcmomlier; "I'm a little
greenhorn among a half acheeso." The words
which had been misunderstood by tho chi'.d
woro these: "I'm a little gleaner among the
harvest sheaves." Hartford Courunt.
A Case of Conscience.
A Boston confectioner the other day re
ceived the fallowing note: "Sir When I was
a child, over thirty years ago, I took off your
counter in Brattle street a little sugar man,
price prolmbly one cent, and it has troubled
my conscience oil and on ever siuce; and
ouce I sent money to you by a friend, and
she was ashamed to deliver it, so I inclose it
by mail (fifty cents) aud beg that you will
acknowledge it." Chicago Times.
In Germany after a girl graduates she is
sent into the country to the house of some
notable housewife, where she remains a year,
learning tbe most approved methods of
household work. Some towns havo started
schools for this work, notably Hamburg. In
England there is a training college for Eng
lish housewives at "Goodrest," near Renil
worth. How to dress to go to a luncheon is decided
by the statement that luncheon is a midday
meal and it should be eaten in midday cos
tume. No wise woman will don evening
dress at such an hour.
Mistakes of Parisian Experts.
Tho annals of the Hotel Drouot abound in
stories of queer mistakes made by so called
experts, writes Theodore Child. How one
mistook tho titlo of a picture, "Salvator
Mundi," for tho name of a "Venetian painter,
rival of Salvator Rosa;" how another at
tributed to Velasquez, " who died in 1660, a
portrait of Louis XV, who was born in 1710;
how another offered a picture of a woman
washing dishes as a "Portrait of Rubens'
Wife," by himself, and volunteered the ex
planation, that "as everybody knew, Rubens
married bis cook." The men who are at tbe
head of their profession are incapable of such
gross ignorance as this; nevertheless, even
experts of the highest grades are fallible.
Thus quite recently an eminent Parisian
dealer offered without hesitation 30,000 francs
for an antique Persian mosque lamp, fabri
cated a few years' ago at Vaugirard by the
famou. Brocart; and still more recently the
most eminent expert in Paris asked In a sale
the modest sum of 100 francs for a hawthorn
pot, which, to his astonishment, sold for 4,600
francs, and afterward went to England,
where it was resold to a New York collector
for 12,000. Nw York Star.
INTERESTING GUESSING MATCH.
A Few Simple Tc ta Which Illustrate Com
mill Em-n of Judgment.
A crank who is an occasional visitor to a
down town office entered the place the other
day when nobody appeared to bo very busy.
Some one was telling a story in which he
made mention of me object "about the size
of a silver dollar" then the crank Interrupted
the speaker with tl e remark:
"111 bet $5 ther isnt a man In this office
who can tell without measuring what the
exact size of a silver dollar is."
Tbe bet was not taken, for nobody knew.
The crank went on:
"I am also willing to give $3 to the man
who will take his pen or pencil and draw a
line which shall represent the exact diameter
of a silver dollar."
Upon this all ha ids made the attempt A
piece of paper was taken, and each took his
turn at drawing a line upon it. When all
had finished the cr ink took a dollar from his
pocket and placed it successively over each
of the marks. Some of them were too long
by half an Inch, an 1 some lacked almost tbat
much in length. There wasn't one which was
not as much as an eighth of an Inch out of
the way.' The eccentric visitor said:
"For men who handle as much money as
you do, It is atrai ge you are not more fa
miliar with its shape and appearance. Now
let me test your judgment in another matter.
Here is a long sheet of white paper, which I
will place upright against the wall back of
this table. Now take your pencils and mark
on the paper what you think is the height of
an ordinary silk ha-. Some of you have a silk
hat here, I suppose P
"Mine is in the o .her room," answered ouo
of the clerks.
"Well, let it star there until we want it
Now try to guess how tall the hat is, and
mark the paper accordingly."
The estimates a! forded a curious illustra
tion of the way tien's opinions will differ
even about a snu.Il matter. Between the
shortest and the longest mark there was a dif
ference of nearly four inches. When the hat
was brought out and sot upon the tab,e
against the paper, all the marks, with two ex
ceptions, wore from one to three inches too
long. Tbe nearest guess was made by a mat.
who made a mark about throe-quarters or an
inch too short. Tb to the crank asked for at.
estimate of the diffc rence in the height of his
derby and the silk hat The guessers didn't
come as near as before.
"That is the way it is," said the crank.
"People have an idea that a high hat is ever
so much higher thaa a common one, yet you
will find if you measure both that the differ
ence is very little. The eye that is not trained
in measuring distaiices will lead its possessor
into some serious errors of judgment"- -Pittsburg
An Early Architect of Hlch Towers.
Tbe construction of tbe tower SO0 meters
high for tbe rariserposition of 18S9has again
brought to light the project of the English
man, Trevithick. It appears that in lsSii be
submitted to the king of England plans for
tho erection of a monumeut 1,000 feet high
(.T0.1 meters), destined to recall to tbe
minds of his fellow citizens the vote on
the reform bill. Nothing come of the idea,
however, and its promoter died shortly
after having presonted the plans. Trevi
thick was the invtutor of a number of re
markable and usoful inventions, among
others the piston pjnip, steam dredge, ma
chine for producing low temperature by tbe
expansion of compressed! air, etc. He occu
pied himself also w.tb a screw propeller, and
in IS04 constructed a ten ton locomotive, and
in 1808 operated in public on a circular rail
way in England tho locomotive, "Catch Me
Who Can," at a speed of twelve miles an hour.
The labors of Trevi Juck seem to hove been
singularly unappreciated, and be died poor
and unknown. The Builder.
Composition of Quicksand.
Quicksand is found in nearly all parts of
the country, but in very great quantity along
the Platte river in Nebraska. It is composed
principally of mica, or small particles of
rock disintegrated from large bodies of rock
and subjected to a continuous washing pro
cess. The water ra noves all the raggedness
or angular shape from the particles. Tbe
fragments become smooth and slimy and
slip upon each other with the greatest facil
ity, so that any heavy weight resting upon
this sand causes the particles to be displaced.
They separate from the center, allowing tho
weight to sink until a solid basis is reached.
When particles of hand are ragged and an
gular any weight pressing on them wUl
crowd them together until they are com
pacted into a solid mass. A sand composed
of mica or soaps ton a mixed with water seem
incapable of such consolidation. St Louis

Everybody needs and should
spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body is now more susceptible tc
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
2d, The impurities which have accumulated
In tbe blood should be expelled, and the sj
torn given tone and strength, before the pros
trating effects of warm weather are felt.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best spring medi
cine. A single trial will convince you of Its
superiorii y. Take it before it is too late.
Tlie Jlest Spring Medicine
"1 tako Hood's Sarsaparilla for a spring
medicine, and I And it just the thing. It tones
up my system and makes me feel like a differ
ent man. My wife takes it fi
she derives great benefit from it. She says it
e uesi medicine she ever took." F. C.
TcitNEK, Hook & Ladder No. 1, Boston, Mass.
"Last spring I was troubled with hnii.
caused by my Mood being out of order. Two
bottles of Hood's Sarsanarilla
can recommend it to all trouble! with affec-
ranns 01 tne blood." J. Schoch, Teoria, 111.
