A BACHELOR OF MAINE.
Heiekiah Bettlo was a bachelor of Maine,
Box one morning he departed by a very early
"F'it foel W bo costly," said the frugal Beze
klah. "I inn forced to find a dwelling where I need
not pay lor nre."
Be look a bee line southward till to Mexren he
Be fonnd there a volcano with a most eccen
Anl he built him there a cottage, did tola
Be built it near the summit of Mount Popo-
Wl enever he desired to cook a mutton chop
ne a nang 11 oy a lengtny string right over
from the top;
Frc m the top of the volcano he would hang it
by a string.
An 1 there, until twos nicely cooked, he'd let
nu ainner swing.
To et his boiling water he would lower down
a nettle '
Right down into the crater of Mount Popocat
epetl: Frcm the ashes of the mountain he would
ngnt nis meeracbaum pine.
And be felt as truly happy as a Jolly little
But one evening, as It happened, there came

And he was much astonished to see Uesekiah
So he tapped him on the shoulder, this poor

Beating Time by Cable.
How he once "beat time," or rather, ap
parent time, in a remarkable fashion is
told by Mr. Archibald Forbes. It is a
to-y of a telegraphic dispatch from the
battlefield. In the early mornine of the
22d of November, 1878, a British division
under General Sir Samuel Browne occu
pied the Afghan fortress of AH Musjid, up
In the Kbyber Pass. Mr. Forbes rode
back ten miles to Jumrood, where the field
tele graph was, and sent the news to Eng-
lan l in a snort message bearing date 10
a. t i.
There is five hours' difference of time
bet .veen India and England in favor of the
latter, and the London papers containing
this telegram dated 10 a. m. were selling in
Fle-;t street at 9 a. m., one hour of appar
ent time before it was dispatched. Its an
tici mtion of time, however, did not end
hen. Owing to the five hours' difference
bet veen the clocks of London and New
Yoi k the message was in time for the reg
ular editions of the New York papers that
san e morni::.'.
It was then immediately wired across the
American continent, and owing again to
the difference in time between the Atlan
tic coast ami the Pacific slope the early
rising citizen of San Francisco, purchasing
bis morning paper at 6 a. m., was able to
read the announcement of an event which
actually occ.n red over two hours later in
apparent time some 13,000 miles away on
the other side of the globe.
Puck, as Mr. Forbes says, professed him
self able to put a girdle around the earth
In forty minutes, but this telegram sped
hall' around the globe in two hours less
tbaa no time at all. London News.
The Influence of Mind on Mind.
T lat the influence of mind on mind is
brd.narily imperceptible does not prove
thar, it 'can not be universal. These are
well ascertained material influences which
are of universal operation, yet too feeble to
be felt ; and in some cases these, even if
more powerful, would still be ordinarily
unf ;lt because they act in many directions
at once, and tend, therefore, to neutralize
T.iat matter has weight has always been
known, but never till within the last few
cent uries could it have beensuspected that,
gra -itatiou Iwing universal, every human
body must exert an influence upon for it
has an attraction for every other human
body, however distant an influence which
woe Id in certain cases be felt if the mass of
the earth and the inertia of matter were
very greatly less than they are. Black
Marriage as a Life Preserver.
A certain set of philosophers, incapable
of I deling affection for any one but them
selves, has delighted in sneering at love
and marriage, and has argued that bach
elorhood is the only conservative state.
But their theory is not liorne out by the
stat sties of married and single life in
mocern times, so far at least as the mas
culine gender is concerned. If longevity
is disirable, then it is better that we should
marry than remain bachelors: for it ap
peals that at every age, fro:n twenty to
eigLty-fJve, the death rate of tliu Benedicts
is very much smaller than that of their
Gentlemen who prefer n short life and a
mer-y one to a prolonsed lease of matri
morial placidity will probably agree in
opinion with the cynical philosophers.

Where Sea Ink In Cap Are Made.
The fur cap trade is centered in the
French quarter. Sealskin caps are less
popular than they once were, but some
thoi. sands of tbem are annually made in
this city. They are made from portions of
skin too small to be used in the best
sacaues. The trade is highly subdivided
It requires a knowledge of furs, and many
of those engaged in the business are for
eigners. Much of the trade is carried on
in comparatively small shops sueb as are
usu: 1 in the French quarter. Often the
cost iest aud most beautiful goods are pro
duct d in shabby little shops where one
wouid expect to find no more important
industry than that of the cobbler. New
