A Singular Itirl!inir.
A well known family of Minneapolis
are distinguished by a singular birt hmark
said to have tw-en borne by everv member
of the family for the past UOO years. How
ever this may Ik? it is certain that the mark
is carried by nil of them now known. It
is a small gash like a kuife wound lit the
base of the neck, narrowly escaping the
spinal cord. This cut, which resembles
a fresh stab with raw lips, refuses
to lie healed, and at. times bleeds profusely
and even alarmingly. It is about three
indies in length and varies in depth from
a quarter of an inch to an iuch and a half,
increasing as t he bearer grows older and
liecomitig more angry and occasioning
greater loss of bloil.
This peculiar birthmark has lieen the
cause of death to nearly all of the family
possessing it, as after 1 he ace or thirty-five
or forty it assumes an exceedingly malig
nant nature, discharging ptis and blood
until mortification ensues. In the chil
dren it seldom amounts to more than a
very deep scratch, causing but slight pains,
but readily inflamed by fever or ot her ill
ness. There is attached to this peculiarity
a romantic story of an ancestor's cowardly
blow nt a brother, and supposed to perpet
uate its memory in this way, but, physi
cians proiionn-.-e it. to be of a cani-eroiis
nature, hereditary and remarkable in the
history of medicine.. Philadelphia Times.
An l:Iurated Fly.
Professor Thomas J. Murray, of New
York, telis a wonderful story of the re
sults of his kindness to a common house
fly: "For two weeks the fly Hew around
my house w it hout much notice beinutaken
of hint; then he liegnu to make advances,
and soon iiermitted tne to handle his wings.
We cniled hiiu 'Dick;' at breakfast every
morning Hick was fed sugar to his heart's
content, and would sit ou my finger iind
corkscrew his legs and rub his head.
'"Present ly I made endeavors to teach him
various tricks, which at first were some
what of a failure. Soon he had advanced
tn the art until he would allow me to lift
him itp on a toothpick. Soon after I
could place two of the little splinters under
him and, by a deal of patience and coax
ing, induce him to stand on his hind Jets.
Then again I could place them on-the table
and have him jumpoverthem successively,
like a circus rider jumps the hurdles.'. Due
of the most singular habits he has is to fly
t my linger like a bantam cock-nt an
enemy whenever he lecomesenraged."-r-Kt.
Louis Republic. ,.,
The ordinary call to horses is "Co-jock!
co-jock!" It is explained that many horses
were formerly named John, which, in
peasant English, is Jock. "Co-jock;" then,
simply means "Come, John." It is said
that the use of the word "jockey," mean
ing a rider or driver of race horses, comes
from the frequency with which horses
were once named Jock, the word passing
in time from the animal to his rider. Boa
