Saw No Reason For Swearing.
General Grant waa asked why
e never swore. He replied:
Well, when a boy I had an
/ersion to swearing. It seemed
aeless, an unnecessary habit,
id besides I saw that swearing
sually aroused a man's anger,
early had a desire to have

CHINESE MAGIC LANTERNS.
How Their Inn trunienta Differ From
Thone In Voe In Thia Country.
The magic lantern, Hke porcelain,
gunpowder and printing, may have
been an invention of tbe Chinese. For
more than twenty centurlos it bna beon
a staple amusement In the Celestial
empire and has been developed into
ninny forms unknown to the occident.
Thc Middle Kingdom, "which has been
well termed Topsy Turvy Land, uses
the magic lantern in just thc opposite
manner from what we do, having the
light and picture behind the screen,
thc same ns lu our parlor amusement
of shadowgraphs. The commonest form
of the magic lantorn in the extreme ori
ent ls a large box supported on a tri
pod or four legged table. The box is
about 4 feet wide by 2 high, and its
front ls made of grouud glasB, oiled
silk or oiled white pnper.
Over the box 1B a light framework of
bamboo and cloth, which reaches to the
ground and conceals tho operator from
the audience, but leaves the glass ex
posed to view. A powerful lamp in
front of a concave reflector throwH a
strong light upon the glass or screen,
ns thc case may be. Thc top of the box
and the Bides are half open to permit
thc introduction of numil figures. This
nrraugemont gives four distinct clnssos
of instruments. With all four instru

to Americans, but in a land whore an
ablcbodied man can bo hired for 0 cents
a day the owner of a successful magic
lantern is looked upon OB a very well
to do individual.
The little plays wbich_ are written
about tho magic figures arc as c^f?ven
tlonnl as our own immortal Punch and
Judy. The "wicked tiger" depicts the
career of a diasolute animal who from
tilling pigs, dogs and buffaloes finally
?ats a beautiful malden and is slain by
i Mongolian chief in full armor on
tiorseback. "The wicked wife" forms
i compact with thc devil, squanders
jor husband's substance in riotous liv
ing and, in tho last scene, hangs ker
jr'f in a blaze of red fire, while the
?vii one expresses wild Joy in extraor
llnary oriental gesticulations. "The
;ruel magician," "the grateful dragon,"
'the fairy foxes" and other bits of
?aBtern folklore afford brief sketches,
ivhlch arc as familiar as. household
words.-New York Tost.
To Give thc Suck.
Two noblemen in the reign of Maxi
nillnn ll.-1D04-15??-one a German,
:he other a Spaniard, who had each
.ondaroo, a great service to the em
peror, asked the limul of his daughter
n marriage. Maximilian said that as
do esteemed them both alike lt was lm
?OBBlble to choose between them, and
.kerefore their own prowess must de
cide it; but, being unwilling to riBk tho
oss of either by engaging them in
Icadly combat, he ordored a large sack
0 be brought and declared that ho who
ihould put his rival into it should have
ils fair Ilelenn. And this whimsical
?oinbnt was actually performed in the
iresenco of the imperial court nud
asted au hour. The unhappy Spanish
loblemnn was first overcome, and tho
icrman succeeded In enveloping him
n the Bnck, took him upon his bnck
md laid him at thc emperor's feet.
This comical combat ls suki to be thc
righi of Gie phrnse "give him the
