Another difficulty in tbewavof eat
lag a watermelon artistically is to get
clear of the seeds. It U said that on one
oecasion a guest at one of the parties fa.
elated that it was proper to pick the
aeeds out With the right index finger,
and U by accident one should get into a
gaets mouth it should be swallowed.
A debate followed the proposition, in
which ore man said be did not propose
to make a watmnekm patch of his in
ternal makeup by planting seeds in it.
The party broke up, and the hostess had
a lot of melons and an antipathy to such
parties loft on her hands.
The outcome of thenewfad it poxsling
the people in uppertendom in the cities
and villa res and rural districts. From
what conld be gathered ha the last few
days on the subject, the watermelon
party does not promise to be a pro
nounced sucrem. One of the great ob
jections is thi- uncertainty to what they
uay lead. fr if the watermelon partv

dent occurred in the Champs Dysees
quarter. A man named Haja, empioved
by 1L Marseille, a wild beast tamer,
thenght he bad a right to add to his
wages by exhibiting his master's bear in
the streets. With this object in view
1st installed the bear in an open cab, and
taking his seat beside the animal told
the coachman to drive to the Champa
Hysee. The vehicle reached the Avenae
Victor Hugo, followed by a crowd of
boys and yoang men, who by their de
risrre ahouts attracted the attention of
twosergesta deville. They stopped the
cab, and after ascertaining the truth
one of them got into tbe vehicle and or
dered the cabman to drive to the nearest
police station. Tbe presence of a stranger
beside it ao excited the bear that hy its
swaying backward and forward it very
aoon upset the vehicle. The merriment
caused by the right of the cabman, the
Bergen ta de rille and tbe tamer sprawling
oo the ground, with the bear almost
under the upset cab, can easily be im

A gang of lightning rod sharks made
an attempt to rod a farmer's bouse
against his will Saturday, but got the
worst of the bargain. The farmer is an
old soldier, living 10 miles south of this
city, named John Snyder. On Thurs
day one man called and inquired who
tbe owner was. got a drink of water and
departed. The next day another called
and proied to make tbe farmer a pres
ent of 100 feet of rod, charging him 75
cents a foot for 10 feet and charging Um
extra for tbe necessary points, insisting
that the farmer sign a contract for the
balance. This las rf&iscd to do, and the
fellow k-ft SatnrSy two more men
drove up to his place, threw ont rods
and tools and iiroceeded to put up the
rods. The farmer objected, but they
claimed to have an order to do the work
and laughed him to scorn. Snyder got
bis gun, and corering tbe man in the
wagon, who had drawn a revolver, he
ordered him to elear ont or be would let
daylight through him. Tbe fellow drove
off at a lively rate, leaving his pal at tbe
mercy of tho farmer, who served him in
like manner,' and now the farmer has 40
feet of lightning rods to sell. Warsaw

Several weeks ago one of the boys at
tending tbe Queen Elisabeth grammar
school at Kingston, Logan by name,
wrote privately to tho Duke of York and
suggested that be should use his influ
ence to secure the boys of the royal
school an additional weeks holiday at
midsummer as an appropriate way of
celebrating ha recent auspicious mar
riage. The Duke of York appears to
have approved of the idea, for a few
days ago the governors of the grammar
school were surprised to receive a letter
Xro .1 Sir Francis lc Winton stating that
bis royal highness would be pleased if
they would grant tbe asked for holiday.
Nothing was known by tho masters or
other authorities of the request made by
the boy till the letter was received from
Sandrinsduim. At a meeting of the gov
ernors it was unanimously agreed to ac
cede to tbe request. The announcement
was received with ringing cheers for tbe

Mrs. Jennie Finkin of Eighth and
Spruce streets, Camden, was found wan
dering on tbe streets at 1 o'clock yester
day morning by Officer Frederick
Voight at Broadway and Bridge avenae.
The woman was attired in a wrapper,
and her hair was banging loosely dowa
her back. She was walking slowly, and
when the officer approached her side he
was astonished to hear her snoring,
although her eyes were open. He ad
dressed her in low tones, but received
no answer. He then grabbed ber by tbe
arm. This aroused her, and when she
found that She was on the street she fell
to tbe pavement from astonishment.
She recovered in a few minutes and ac
cepted the protection of the officer to as
sist her borne. Mrs Finkin is said to be
subject to attacks of somnambulism.
When she was found by the officer, she
was nearly two miles from her home,

One of tbe lovely nymphs who was
floating about among tbe sylvan woods
and streams during tbe summer has
among her belongings a gown which tbe
prosy man who pays tbe nymph's bills
considers not a dream, but a very sub
stantial reality, as it cost him .V)0 over
and above the original price. That was
the sum be paid for one of tbe horses
that toffe cold while the carriage waited
at tbe door of tbe modiste when tbe

however, thinks tbe unreasonable man

A Qaory About EloetrawiUaa.
It is a noteworthy fact that post
mortem examinations have been held on
tho bodies of electrocuted criminals ia .
very short time after tbey were shocked.
Who among us all can positively and
certainly declare whether life baa left
the body after a passage through it of
an electric current? 'A shock of 2.000
volta will undoubtedly kill aome men
and may only stun others. Ia there a
competent physician who will stateupon
his honor that the criminals who have
been electrocuted in New York state
were dead when tbey were carried from
the chair? Electrical Review.
