Editor George Van Cohxe, of the
Muscatine Neas-Tribuae, iecen'ly sub
mitted to to a painful operation in the
removal of a tumor from the left limb
which was 8uccessful:y acorop'.ished,
and wi:h the belief that the i a it nt would
soon be ia the enjoyment of bis usual
health. But it was not to be that wiv.
Evidence was noted by the surgeons that
the csus j of the trouble abided, &ad thit
amputation of (be limb would be neces
sary. Mr. Van Hcrne was not informed
of the ordeal which awaited him, until
ifter the Christmas holidays were over.
The operation has been performed, anr
whi'e the outcome is not assured, hi
condition is such as to give the sureoni
and family hopes that the wor?t is over
At a Dinner In Korup.
Upon the three woolen couches which
formed three sidesof a square in the center
of the room there reclined nine Romans,
for the giver of the feast hml borne in mind
the Paying of Varro that those invited
should never be niore in number than the
muses nor le?s than the graces.
The quests wore wreatlis of roses
upon their oiled locks most of them,
although one, whose white tunic bore tho
single dark stripe of a senator, had pre
ferred the crown of ivy leaves. Thecouchw
whereon they reclined were of wood thickly
incrusted with ivory, and made easier by
many cushions covered with light silk.
The guests leaned on their left elbows,
and ate with their right hands only. At
the end of the course silent servants
brought water in silver bowls and proffered
linen napkins that the fingers might be
washed, while Bnother attendant wiped the
low wooden table with a thick cloth.
In the open space before the table and
the couches other slaves were casting
down saffroned dyed sawdust, that it
might absorb the blood which lay ia little
pools upon the pale pavement. There the
gladiators had been fighting but a mo
ment before, to entertain the guests at
the banquet, and having given strong
proofs of their skill and of their courage
they had been dismissed, and were now
behind the house, out of sight, one trying
to stanch Lis wounds, the other stiff in
death and carried by his comrades. Bran
der Matthews in Harper's.
The Origin of "Brother Jonathan."
It seems strange to speak of the United
States as "Brother Jonathan," and the
wonder is how it ever began; but on in
quiring into the matter we find that tba
custom arose from an ordinary remark
made by General Washington at the be
ginning of the Revolutionary war. On
going to Massachusetts to organize the
army he found it scant of ammunition
and all means of defense, and no one could
suggest any way out of the difficulty.
Something must he done at once for the
public safety, and General Washington,
who had great confidence in the judgment
of Governor Jonathan Trumbull, of Con
necticut, said in his dilemma, "We must
consult Brother Jonathan on the subject."
"Brother Jonathan" was equal to the oc
casion, and supplied many of the lacking
necessities, and afterward durirjg the war
it became the custom in any emergency to
say, "We must consult Brother Jonathan."
In time the name became applied to the
whole country, and it is pleasant to know
that the great Washington himself was the
originator of it. Harper's Young People.

"We have far iwtter amusements in the
workhouse than most people think," said
an old inmate to one of our representatives
the other day. I don't mean such things
as cards, domino's and ttie like, but real,
first class, professional affairs. But you

"Now, there's n old fellow in my 'house.'
He was an actor and can still remember
every line of Shakespeare. We often make
up an ounce of tobacco among us, and
he'll give us a w lole act of 'Hamlet.' He
is not above taking half an ounce for the
recital of a scene or two. Only last week
he was in grand form. Twenty of us man

Good Horses and Fairly Treated.
High tide in H jboken, and the floating
bridges h-adin to the ferryboats are pretty
steep hills for horses to climb, especially if
the lo;:d is hea y, and many heavy loads
come from Hobo! en.
Here are two b,g gray horses coming up
the bridge, piill.ng a heavy truck piled
high with .some sort of imported mer
chandise in cases. The bridye is a little
slippery, and niaj be the horses are rather
smooth shod, for .hey slip to a standstill,
but the truck doesn't go back; a watchful
ferryhand slips a block under the off rear
wheel. The driver upon his high seat
now reclines with a slightly blase air, as
though driving w ore rather a bore to him
anyhow, Rnd he i. glad to give it up for a
time. The horses stand at rest. The pro
cession of horses and vehicles coming in
from the street chses up solid and halts.
Passengers comi ig aboard stop at the
rear end of the ferryboat, look at the
stalled team and wonder how and when
the blockade will be raised.
After awhile, St :;cems a long time, though

The Troubles of Bus Conductors.
An old lady ha led a passing omnibus,
which pulled up at her call. "Goodby,
then, my dear," &m she to a female friend
who had accompanied her. "I'll write and
tell you how I jet on directly I've got
there. You've g t my address, haven't
you? No? Why, I thought I gave it to
you. It's in this bag, I suppose, under
my pocket handkerchief and my key and
packet of Rudwi.;hes. Oh, I'll coma o it
directly. I'd bet-er give it to you now,
else when I writ a I may forget to' send
it, That's not it, is it? No, that's (be

you won't forgut to write? If yoa

isn't she? And to think she should be
married to such . brute! But that's the
way of the world all over. It's just like

meek as a lamb never did a bad thing or
said a bad word of anybody that ever I

How Typewriters Differ.
The quality of u liformity is one in which
good typewriters may differ greatly. Some
strike harder with the right hand than
with the left, and thus stamp their work
indelibly. Others occasionally "shadow"
letters that is, blur their outlines, by
holding the key down too long or by strik
ing it sideways. Perhaps the idiosyncra
sies of punctuation are the most trust
worthy earmarks of all. Then force of
habit impels operators never to vary from
their own practice in given cases. Take
the sentence, "When did you go there
Monday?" One mm would put a question
mark after "there;" another a comma;
still another a dt sh or a semicolon. A
comma and a dash, a semicolon and a dash
might also be used. A skilled man always
follows his own usage iu such cases. New

Ju.st why people should expend no end
of time and money on the rearing of horses
and cattle, taking every precaution that
their development is symmetrical and har
monious, and apparently feeling no inter
est in what their own children are to be, is
a question that hilosophers might well
take up and stut y. Evidently there is
something wrong somewhere, and the
sooner the error is discovered and bred out
of the human family the better it will be
for the future of the human race. New

Birds In Indian Legends.
All primitive people regard the bird as
specially wise and favored. Living in the
air he is regarded as exercising control
over atmospheric phenomena, and know
ing so well his own migratory seasons the
Indiaus observe his flights as foreboding
ill or good to themselves.
The Hurons believe that the dove carries
the souls of the departed hence. The Da
kota say the stormbird dwells so high as
to be out of l:ii man vision and carries a
fresh water lake on his back, so that when
he plumes biuiseif it rains, when he winks
his bright eyes it lightens, when he flaps
his wings thunder rolls. The Alaskans
hold much the same idea about the "thuu
derbird." Among them all the eagle is mighty,
brave, aspiriug the symbol of their war
riors for apparent reasons. The kingfisher
