A Lnmlnons Tree. j
One of the most remarkable of trees j
about 12 miles north of Tuscarora.
It ia six or seven feet high, with
trunk which at its base is three times
the size of an ordinary man's wrist.
It has numberless branches and
twigs, and resembles somewhat the
barberry. Its truly wonderful char
acteristic is its luminosity, which is
so great that on the darkest night it
can be plainly seen a mile away.

Its foliage is extremely rank, and
its leaves resemble somewhat those

which can be transferred to the hand
by rubbing and with the tranfer the

is thought to be due to a parasitic

superstition and will not come near
it even in daytime. They give it

the Newly Chosen President.
I had quite a chat some time ago
with treneral John Tyler, the son
and private secretary of President
Tyler. Said he: "When my father
succeeded to the presidency, he con
tinued President Harrison's cabinet
in office until he found that thev
were working against him. His first
cabinet meeting was held on the day
eucceedinc: the death of President
Harrison, and it was peihaps the
most remarkable cabinet meeting in
"When all the members were pres
ent and the doors were closed, Dan
iel Webster, the secretary of stte,
arose and addressed my father, say
ing: 'Mr. President, I suppose you
intend to carry out the ideas and
customs of your predecessor and
that this administration inaugurated
by President William Harrison will
continue in the same line of policy
on which it has ltetnin Am T richt?'
"My father, much astonished, nod
ded his head almost involuntarily
and looked at Mr. Webster with
wonder. Daniel Webster straight
ened himself up at this and contin
" 'Mr. President, it was the custom
in our cabinet meetings of President
Harrison that the president should
preside over tneni. All measures re
lating to the administration were to
be brought before the cabinet, and
their settlement was to be decided
by the majority of votes, each mem
ber of the cabinet and the president
having but one vote.
'My father was alwaj-s courteous,
but he was also firm. He rose to
his feet and looking about the cabi
net room he said: 'Gentlemen, I
am very proud to have in my cabi
net such able statesmen as you have
proved yourselves to be. I shall be
pleased to avail myself of your coun
sel and advice, but I can never con
sent to being dictated to as to what I
shall or shall not do. I am the pres
ident, and I shall be held responsible
for my administration. I hope I
shall have your hearty co-operation
m carrying out its measures. So lon;
as you see fit to do this I shall be
glad to have you with me. When
you think otherwise, I will be equal
ly glad to get your resignation.
This," concluded General Tyler,
"settled the question, and there was
no further trouble as to who was the
head of the cabinet." Pittsburg Dis-
Trapping Wolves In France.-
Among other contrivances there is
one that outwits the sagacity of the
wolf with as httle hardship as such a
capture admits. Within a circle of
strong stakes not very closely plant
ed a sheep or a goose is confined.
At a distance ot 10 incnes is an
outer circle of stakes having an en
trance 18 inches wide. The path be
tween the two circles is wYill beaten
down. The door of the outer one,
which folds back against the inner,
is set invitingly open.
In marches the cautious wolf pur
sues the path till he comes to the
back of the open door, pushes against
the yielding obstacle, and by so do
ing closes the entrance against him
self. The latch falls at the impact
of the door against the doorpost, and
he is hopelessly fast, unable to touch
the decoy animal of the mner circle
62 to leap over the strongly planted
pole's of the outer one. Thus inglo
