First the Indians scrape the horns with
a knife until the surface is comparatively
smooth. Then they file them for a lnn
time, until they are smoother yet. Finally
they take a stone and begin to polish, and
keep up the process until the horns are as
smooth as glass and as black and shiny as
a well polished boot. Some travelers think
the product is very pretty, and so the In

The physician in charge of an insane asy
lum in Ohio prescriled a large dose of cas
tor oil for one of the inmates, a man of
great strength and wild, unmanageable
temper. Itie attendant who had been
commissioned to administer the nauseous
dose foresaw that he was likely to find the
task more or less difficult, and therefore
took vith him several assistants.
On reaching the lunatic'scell the attend
ant pet on a matter of fact air and. cup in
hand, stepped inside the door. The mad
man divined his purpose instantly, and
rushed furiously upon him. The assist
ants were too quick for him, however, and
after a severe straggle threw him down
and attempted to pinion his arms.
The man fought like a tiger, but fonnd
himself overmatched. Suddenly he be
came jierfec-r l y quiet, and putting his hand
to his mouth said in a whisper to the chief
attendant, '"Call it oysters."

the lunatic's meaning. Directing the won

took t he cup from the shelf on which it
had been set, approached the crazy man,

cerenunious politeness: "Good morning.

One cay, the first anniversary of the

closing a check for fifty doll-rs. which he
wished the pastor to accept us his proper

of tbe original compensation, and tbe
clergyiran was left to construe it as best
be could. He was, however, inclined to

time of the ceremony, and (tnough why
one cent was chosen remains a mystery)
