SAM DAVISES BY THE DOZEN.
Christian Names Amount to bat IJttle
In the) Missouri Backwoods.
While passing through the state house
he other dn.y the writer ran across a gen
tleman who ws a conspicuous figure in
western Missouri about the time the war
of the rebellion commenced. lie was
sheriff of one of the back counties and as
such had to deal with bad and dangerous
men. At table the question came up as to
the number of persons who went under as
sumed names and those who had other
names thrust npoo them. He said that in
his part of the state nearly every other per
son had some assumed name.
"But," he continued, "the most laugha
ble exhibition of aliases I ever saw I met
in the fall of 18X. Our grand jury had
made a presentment against one Samuel
Davis for stealing some piers and the pa
pers were placed in my hands for service.
JMvis lived over in the next county, at or
near a town named Jim's Hollow, and to
tins place I went. There were fifteen
houses in the place. After ta'cing a sur
vey of the places, I mad up niv mind that
I bad a curious crowd to deal with and
govert:M myself accordingly. Selecting
the saloon having the largi-st crowd. I
walked up to the bar, call.-d for a cigar
and after smoking a few : linun-s took the
proprietor aside and inquired if lie knew a
man living there named Samuel Davis.
'"Samuel Davis? It me see, what
other name did he go by There are six
Samuel Davises living in this town, and
unless you can tell the name the boys gave
him you minht as well look for oranges on
an icelx-rg. Now there is old Sam Davis.
who atone time lived in Texas, and who
has been pounded up in so many lights
that his back stands up like the hump on
4 camel. The boys call him Old Hump
Davis. Then there is Sam Davis, who
used to be an overseer of a plantation in
South Carolina. Well, one day. as the
story go-s. he attempted to maul arold
slave, and the fellow turn-d on him and
like to "chawed" all the skin off his face,
ami ever since that time he has been
known as Skin Davis.
" 'You see that little old man over there
with one ear gone? In NO lie was one of
I he most prosperous farmers in these part s,
but one day a circus came this way and i:e
fell in love with a little dancer, sold his
farm, went after her, spent all his money,
then attempted to kill her, but the little
heel kicker would not have it that way
and send the keen edge of a carving knife
through his ear. Now the boys call him
I-op Kared Davis. That tall fellow leaning
against the counter with one-half of his
nose gone used to have a wart on the end
of it as big as a goose egg. One day a big
fellow from the mountains came down
here, and when that nose and wart got in
his way he pulled out an old navy and shot
the wart and part of the nose off, and now
in four counties he is known as Short Nose
'"You see that corpulent man at the
third table playing cards, with no hair on
bis head? In 159 lie went across the plains
to California in search of gold. He didn't
find much gold, but struck an Indian trail,
and several old bucks struck him, and
when they parted the bucks had ail his
hair and he had some knowledge of the
Indians. Since that time he has been
known as Duldiiead Davis. That little man
sleeping on the bench makes his living
gathering hucklelK-rries, and we call him
HuckellK-rry Davis. So you see, stranger,
if you want to find Samuel Davis you must
first know his nickname.'
"I remained around this place five days
ami made the acquaintance of the entire
Davis trile and their families, but failed
to get my man, ami afterward the county
commissioner of my county secured the
services of the lest local detective, anil he
remained in Jim's Hollow for over a month,
but failed to locate t he Samuel Davis who
stole sow and pigs." Columbus (O.) Cor.
The Hanks of Newfoundland.
The finest codfish in the world are caught
on the banks of Newfoundland. These
banks have no connection with the shores
of the islands, from which indeed the
nearest is almost 100 miles distant. They
are really great rocky heights rising from
the bottom of the sea. The great bank
measures 540 miles from north to south,
and from east to west it measures in places
300 miles. On this bank the depth of
water varies from 50 to 300 feet, but the
depth around it is from 10,000 to 150,000
The fishing grounds or "cod meadow,"
as they are called do not cover the whole
bank, but are about 200 miles long by C7
brottd. Though these have lieen fished for
400 years the coil are as plentiful as ever.
To the east of the great bank lies the
outer or false bank, where the sea is from
300 to 000 feet deep. The cod caught on
the banks are finer and larger than the fish
taken off the Labrador coast. This is sup
posed to 1 due to the fact that they have
reached the age of four yenrs and upward,
at which age their habits lead them to feed
on the banks in preference to the shore,
whTethe younger fish remain all the year.

Where Hurley Is Cultivated.
Barley extends over a wider climatic
range than any of the other grains, and is
successfully cultivated over a greater
breadth of the globe than any other cereal.
It flourishes under the heat and drought
of the borders of the torrid rone, and
grows sturdily and maturely on the north
ern verge of the temperate zone, ripening
and thriving under various adverse cir
cumstances which wheat is wholly unable
to resist. Barley is found in the Faroe
islands, near Cape North, the extreme
point of Norway; near Archangel on the
White sea, and in central Siberia, lietween
58 decs, and 59 degs. north latitude. In
genial climates, such as those of Egypt,
Barbary and the south of Spain, two cro;s
of barley may be reaped in the same year,
one in spring from seed sowed the previous
autumn and one in autumn from a spring
sowing. Brooklyn Eagle.
A well known citizen yesterday said, "In
West Philadelphia there is a colored artist
of no mean fame, whose landscapes are o
the highest order of painting." At the
Centennial exhibition in 1S76 a young col
ored woman astonished the visitors with
her art figures and molding in plastic,
and among the first artisans in wood carv
ing, jewelry, drafting and penmanship
work some of the colored people of this
city aro in the front rank. Philadelphia
From a Little Start.
Thirty years ago a kindly German pas
tor, moved to pity by the condition of the
homeless orphans In the city in which he
lived, took three of them into his own
home, appealing to Christians for aid to
feed and clothe them, and to educate them
into useful, good citizens.
Three great orphan asylums in different
cities of the west are the result of this lit

Mr. Albert Owens is a prominent

Minn. He spent hundreds of dollars in
endeavoring to recover from nervous
prostration, and a year ago was so low
that a report of his death reached the
editor of the Winnebago Press News.
An obituary of Mi. Owens appeared in
that paper, and was read by him. While
in this condition he began taking Dr.
Miles' Re'torative Remedies, and in a
