A PonOELIAN FIDDLE.-VOnice is
considerably excited at present over
a very unusual sort of a fiddle, the
only one of its kind, probably, ever
made. The manufacttu'er of this
porcelain fiddle was formerly a
workman in a Saxon porcelain man
ufactory. After his return, old
and feeble, to his old home, he at,
tempted to carry out a long cher..
ished project for making a fiddle,
the box of which should be of
solid china. With the aid of
a boy, it is stated, he has
in fact succeeded in producing
a fiddle of this kind, which has
a tone of rare purity and astonish
ing richness, combined with charm..
ing harmony and extraordinary
power. The box part, or resonator,
is exceedingly light, and the strings
are made of metallic wires, while
the bow, departing from the usual
form, is curved, making: almost a
semi-circle. The success of this
clever Venetian, who had enjoyed
the advantages of the skill acquired
in a German porcelain factory, may
be the means of directing musicianis
to the advantages of the clear,
ringing, but fragile china and glass
for simular uses in acoustics.

SNIP.E SHOOTING EXTHAORDINARY.
The greatest shooting exploit over
perforncd in this country was re
contly achieved by a gentleman long
a resident of this State, and the
owner of some of the largest plan
tations, sugar and cotton. For
years past tho exploits of this gen
tleman have been regarded with the
highest admiration and wonder in
all sporting circles. Leasing out
his splendid sugar estates on the
Techo, he has reserved the privilege
of occupying a shooting box, which
he calls his "snipery," where ho
spends every year a month or so,
to enjoy without disturbances his
favorite amusoment of shooting this
fine and agile bird, which abounds
on his own and the adjoining plan
tations. The results of his sport,and
skill in past years have been fro
quently referred to as wonderful.
To bag three hundred snipe on the
wing, of course, a day has been a
common achievement-common for
him, but never accomplished by any
other sportsman. In his last on,
terprise, however, he surpassed his
previous exploits by devoting six
successive days to this sport. The
result was a bag of nineteen hund
red and sixty snipo. Allowing six
hours per day for the hunt, this
vould give a snipe a minute, which
is about equal to the hog killing
operations of the great slaughter
houses of Chicago. Besides the
pleasure and pride of such an
achievement, the robust appearance
of tho gentleman by whom it was
performed, when we met him yes.

happy effects upon his physical con

AN OUTRAGEoUs AFFAIR.-An un
pleasant story conies from New
York, telling of the arrest in a
popular dry goods store of two re
spectable ladies, sisters, who were
minocently there in due course of
shopping. In this instance the
ladies were, without cause, suspect.
ed of shoplifting by an employee
known as floor-walker, were rudely
ushored into a private office and
subjected to being searched. Noth
ing was found about the ladies to
warrant such a proceeding, reports
say ; but the indignities did not end
there, for the -too officious accusera
had gone too far, though the dry.
goods meIpromised to say nothing.

They could not do that and were.

That the proprietors of the store had
not approved of the acts of their
employees in the matter. Even if
the suit had been successful, no
amount of money could pay for the
wounded feelings and sufferings ex,
porienced by the, much injured
ladies. This affair should prove a
warning to the ladies and clerks of
New York, for we believe it is only
in that city that such things can be
and not excite special wonder.

(Canada) Globe, Rosa and Gertrude
Brockenridge, daughters of Mr. W.
B3reckenridge, of Belmont, while in
theo vicinity of Long Lake, noticed a
large deer madly rush into the
water, evidently pursued and slight
ly wounded. Without a moment'a
hesitation the two girls procured a'
boat, armed themselves with clubs
and set after the deer. They. soon
encountered the aggravated animal,
when tho girls courageously comn.
menced the attack with their clubs,
and after a short contest brought'
his deership to bay, and had him
