HE rtt. WORKS EASILY, WORKS
SUCCESSFULLY." CLEAN HOUSE WITH
A Bright Little Canine Was Befriended by
an Athletle Yonnjr Woman.
The other day a well dressed man
and woman were walking in one of
the up town streets. Attention was
attracted to them by the antics of a
blue Skye which capered from one
side to the other, leaping at their
heels in the most extravagant ispirit.
Not long after some boys were teas
ing a dog in an area. A young wo
man, whose heart goes out to all the
things that have four legs and cannot
talk, put on her hat and jacket and
went to the reocue. It was the same
dog, now lying in an evident stupor.
The young woman picked up the dog
and carried it to the apple woman at
the corner, whom she bribed to take
care of it.
The dog revived and won the apple
woman's heart. She took him to tho
stand every day, where he kept sen
try and warned off the boys. His
funny capers and cheerful spirits
made him known to everybody in the
neighborhood. He became the espe
cial friend of the athletic young men
whose training ground is back of the
old woman's apple stand, where they
let him in for a line run.
On Sunday evening he darted across
the street with a bark of joy to an
approach g couple. Ho leaped at
their sides, he tuggid at their clothes
with every expression of a dog's de
light. " 'Why, it's Bruno :" they ex
claimed, and at the sound cf his name
the dog leaped higher than before.
'Yoti see," said the woman, "he was
our dog. Ye were fond of him, but
he would chew up things." "When
he chewed up a young lady s $7 lxn
net and we had to pay for it," added
the man, "we felt wo must get rid of
him," resumed the woman, "so we
fed him on biscuit soaked in whisky
until he was drunk ; then we took
him out to walk so we could lose him "
"No, we don't want him any more, "
said the man. "Yes, he is very fond
of us; goodby, Bruno," and this
couple of amiable heathens passed
on. Bruno has been stolen now, and
the apple woman, the athletes and
the neighborhood mourn. New York
A Coal Mine In China.
The coal mines at Wang-san-shih
are very interesting. There are here
three seams of 24 feet, 3 feet and 14
feet, which are at an angle of 50 de
grees, nearly due south. A perpen
dicular shaft has been sunk 106 feet
with no fault. The first 25 feet were
through alluvium, thence through
quart zite and a few bands of 6halo in
quartzite. Hie shaft is being deep
ened at the rate of four inches per
hour. Wang-sanshih is only three
miles from the line of railway and
six miles from the iron mines. In
summer a creek comes within half a
mile of the works, and it was up this
that the heavy machinery was
brought to the mines by the follow
ing ingenious process :
A raft drawing only an inch to the
ton was constructed, and, the ma
chinery being shipped, was dragged
up the creek till it grounded. Then
a dam was built behind which caused
it to float, and this was successively
and successfully done until the ma
chinery was got to within a half a
mile of the mines. Hand porterage
took it the rest of the way. Inven
tion. A Mother's Lore.
When the late General Butler was
in command in New Orleans, a wom
an of that city applied to him for a
pass througli the Union lines that
she might see her son, who was lying
wounded in a house in the suburbs.
The general told her she could have
one if she would take the oath of al
legiance. This she refused to do and
argued long anil earnestly against it,
breaking into a flood of tears at
length and exc laiming, "You do not
know how I love iny son." "Ah!"
cried Butler, with scathing emphasis,
"but you love secession better."

Men of peace! No, we are nothing

others fight. His boys learn to dou
ble their fists almost as soon as to

are of David's fight with tho Philis

of Samson. They e;o to school to le
taught to venerate the classic deeds
of the fleet footed Achilles and tho
masterful Herakles, and to regard as
the modem successor of those an

his schoolmates has the quickest eye

Explanation of a Snoril Trick.
A trick in which a sword is appar
ently passed through a person's ab
domen is explained as follows : The
sword employed is a thin, flexi
ble, dull blade. The prestidigitator,
whose body the sword will simply
pass around, but not pierce, carries
concealed beneath his vest a sheath
that consists of a hollow tube, semi
circular in shape, the two extremities
of which are bent in contrary direc
tions in such a way that they are
situated in tho same straight line, the
two orifices opening m front and be
hind at right angles with the abdo
men. This tube runs around the
farther side of the man, who, appear
ing instinctively to grasp the point
of the sword as if to protect himself,
directs it into the metallic tube. The
flexible sword makes its exit between
the tails of the coat. It is necessary
to operate rapidly, so that the spec
tators shall not have time to see that
the length of tho sword has dimin
ished, tho curved line that it follows .
not being the shortest passage from
one point to another. Cincinnati En

Dr. G. C Osoood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I tra acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
Miem to premature graves."
Da. J. F. KmcHEXOB,
" Castoria is so well adapted to children tha
I recommend it as superior to any proscription
known to me."
H. A. Archer, 3C D.,
Hi So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. T.
" Our physicians in the children's depart
incut have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that th
merits of Castoria has won us to took with
favor upon it."
