An Obsolete Pronunciation.
Old fashioned folks, afloat and
ashore, still like to pronounce "lieu
tenant" leftenant. Some still older
folks accent the first syllable in ad
dition to pronouncing it "lef. " Tho
pronunciation leftenant, accent on
the second syllable, is now ehielly
confined to tho retired list of tho
navy, though you can find here and
there a young officer who braves

the almost archaic pronunciation.

They Made Eighty-Two Attempts lo tha
First Six Months of 1893.
The Railroad Gazette has collected
statistics of train wrecking and train
robbing for tho first six months of
1S93. which yield some surprising re
sults. One is accustomed to think of
train wreckers and train robbers as
infesting sparsely settled Western
states, but statistics show, on the con
trary, that such crimes are most prev
alent in well-settled states. The Ga
zette's figures show sixty-one attempts
to wreck trains and twenty-one at
tempts to rob them. Massachusetts
and Illinois heads the list in the num
ber of attempts to wreck trains, and
In these three advanced states were
made more than one-half of all the
attempts to wreck trains, and the
state of New York follows. The only
explanation offered for this prepon
derance of train wrecking in well-settled
and, generally speaking, well
governed states is that the mileage of
railroads is greater in those states
than in others, and that tramps, who
are responsible for most attempts to
wreck trains, flourish in thickly set
The geographical distribution of
attempts at train robbing are still
more curious. Iowa heads the list;
Indian Territory and Oklahoma taken
together have the same number; Texas
follows and then conies Kansas and
Nebraska. Sixty-seven per cent of all
the train robberies occurred in these
four states and two territories.
The Woman Who Is as Afraid
trie Cars as of Mice.
The woman who is so '"afraid of
electricity' seems 10 get commoner
every day. She took about five min
utes to board a Boston horse car
lately, just because there was an elec
tric car directly behind it The con
ductor encouraged her all he could
from tho platform, bat after casting
startled glances at the big car stand
ing on the track she would make an
ineffectual attempt t j reach the steps
of the car in front of it. and when
within a few feet of it she always
dodged back with a little squeal, as if
she thought the car would jump the
track, trolley and all. for the sole pur
pose of running her down.
It was not until tlie policeman saw
the dilemma and t.iol; her by the arm
and led her aboard th:it she accom
plished the feat Even then she came
in muttering: "I can't help it. I am
scared to death of electricity.' It goes
withoutsayiugth.it slu was young
and pretty. Otherwise no one would
have bothered to wait for her, and she
might still be dodging out into the
street anil back, lu fact she was so
pretty that the conductor and police
man were patient and it is surprising
that some man on the car did not dart
into the street and fetch her aboard in
his arms. She was so scared t hat she
would not have minded such gallantly.
NO DAMAGE DONE.
The Soup tln'y Needed a Tack Hammer
to Make It I'erfrct.
When a man enters a restaurant he
generally does so in search of fo.xl,
but sometimes finds other things. The
man entered a certain restaurant in
St. Louis and noting on the bill of
fare a rather rich soup called for it
The waiter, after waiting as all wait
ers do until the guest's patience was
exhausted, brought him the delicacy
smoking hot and set it before him.
After imbibing several spoonfuls the
man felt a gritty substance collide
with his grinders, and after several
vain attempts to crush it reached for
it with his fingers. Imagine his as
tonishment to find the refractory sub
stance nothing more or less than a
good sized carpet tack.
Calling the waiter, the man laid the
matter before him, reproaching him
with such useless ferocity and reckless
disregard of human life. The waiter
was astonished, but managed to artic
"Just throw it on the floor; it won't
hurt anything," and( thinking he had
made the amende honorable, he de
parted, whistling "After the Ball."
Boot-Blacks In France.
Women in France support them
selves blackening shoes. Along the
quay of Havre, and especially in the
vicinity of the transatlantic steamship
docks it is a common sight to find a
cheery little femme on her knees, in a
short dress, black blouse and a cap as
white as the crest of the waves, varn
ish'mg a countryman's patent leathers
or staining the russet shoes of a man
from Des Moines. These women
"boots" are usually the wives or
widows of sailors, fishers or longshore
men. They are not bonny, but they
have the sunshine in their hearts, the
news of the harbor at their tongues'
ends and they are deft of touch,
thorough in their work and excessive
ly polite. When asked the price of
their service they invariably answer:
"As you like, sir." There are only
two steamer days a week, but they all
make enough to live on.
