It w-eame necessary recently for Dr.
Townsend, the physietan in charge of the
Paterson, New Jersey, smallpiox hospital,
end his five assistants, to take oath to their
acconuts in order that the bills might be
presented to the neeting of the allermen.
It was thought imprudent to allow them
to go dowin through the city to the re
coider's office, an(d on the other hand Rte
corder Ureaves did not care to go to the
hospital to adiuister the oath. After

send Assistant City 1hysician hlurd to the
hospital with the bills as his proxy. The
doctor got the hospital physician and his
assistants to sign the allidavits on the end
of their bills, and then hunted ii) a Bible.
When all had put their hands on the
t.ok, Dr. 1Hurd went to the telepihone in

"You and cacti of yoi do solemnly

through the telephone.

"So hel) you God," said the Recorder
through tile telephone.
"So help you (lod,"Irepeated Dr. Hurd.
"Now kiss the book," said the tele
"Kiss the book." repeated the toetor.
The six hospital attaches kissed the bible
"They've all kissed it," said the doctor

Tho chief sporting paper of Vienna
k has published the description of a bear
y hunt in Trausylvaia wbih is gene
railly attributed to the pon of the Crown
Prince Rudolph, aud is perused with
great interest. After relating the Wni
dents of the first unsuccessful cday,
r during which several bears wero met
with and wounded, but not a single on
killed, the Crown Princo continues:
"On the 27th September we still hunted
in the forest, but close to its edge,
s where tilled floids anid houses would be
r likely to prevent the bear from escaping
U out of the wood. The drivers' first
triail was in viain--no bear showed Itself;
but their second march through the
wood was more successful. The row of
I luuiters stood in a deep trench in which
grew splendid old pines (each hunter
11n11. his trenichmanlil and several Young
forest ers behind him, who load the ritles
aiAuld present thon to the huuter). After
waiting for sine tine a powerful owl
flew by me, and inieudiately afterwards
c:iie a two-year old brown boar, who
trottOd -ownl the montain side, making
for the spaco between Count M. and
hiron J. Just as lie was reaching the
rp)lain t he Baron shot him inl the shoil
deIr. lie now changed his direction,
and ran away at great.speied, so that the
Count's ball missed himi. 110 was still
going it a inpi:1 pace, wheni the Count,
while tuning around for his loaded
rlle, Slipped and fell, so that his trench
3 ma was obliged to sendi a shot. after the
lllimll, which caused it to fall an1d roll
forwird, Another shot from the trench
man's rillo at last mado an end to his
life, after lie had risen from the ground,
aid matd2ei a few paces more. The hear
was borne home in trilunph. " Oin the
t. lih of Septembller the Crown Prince
ha an active 81aro in ho hunt., which
3 ho deseribes 1 follows:-"We had
taken cur plaees ()in the broad road used
by the wvoo2d earts. J had stood about
at uarter-of-an-hour at the pliaoo 2as

We did not see hin again. Very soon

candidly owns that lie did not kill a
