WOMEN AS BULL.FIQHTJBllS.
The Brutal Spurt Carried on In Kian? ? tag
Woll a? lu Spain.
(from the Loiulon Telegraph.)
Bull-baiting und lighting fa not yet
over in Franco any moro thun in Spain.
Despite tho outcry that was raised
so tuc months ugo relative to tho dis
graceful scones that occurred in thc
amphitheatre at Nones during a bull
bi.iting carnival, tho samo spectacles
be ve been again witnessed amid the
enthusiasm of ten thousand spectators.
On Monday, May 10, the famous am
phitheatre, a relic, of old itotnan times,
was fol! to repletion with a crowd of
excited beings who had como lo wit
ness tho skill and prowess of tho Mata
dor Frutos and his compeors.
What was more, three toreras were
to appear, this hoing thc first limo that
women have entered tho arenas at
Nimos. At throo o'clock in thc after
noon the performances began with a
grand procession of Spanish bull
fighters, nullo and female, who rode
proudly imo the enclosed spaco to
tho sound of military music. Three
toreras in fancy costumes, all spark
ling with lila ree ami bangles, headed
the procession. Then anno thc quad
rille, composed of live toreadors,
beaded bv thc great Frutos himself in
At thc sound of a bugle a splendid
black bull of crossed Spanish breed
bounded snorting into thc ring. The
women immediately set to work witu
their banderillas, which they Hung at
tho face and body of tho careering
toto. The lips of thc animal's horns
woro covered with round knobs ol
wood or leather while the women were
plying their darts, so us to prevent
accidents, hut these protections wore
afterward removed in some instances
while thc men were performing.
A second bull, a red one, which was
next let loose, made straight ut one of
tho toreras, a young woman, profes
sionally designated as Senorita Bonita
del Anio, and knocked her over in a
second, but not, howoror, before she
had succeeded in planting two lance
headed poultons between his eyes.
Thc woman was disengaged with
surprising deftness by her male com
panions and returned to thc charge
willi courageous persistence. She was
loudly applauded by thc public for her
performance. A fresh bull was intro
duced, which brought out the finer
pluy of Frutos, whose first proceeding
was to clear thc hull with a polo as
easily as it' he were clearing a fence.
He then simulated death by lying still
on thc ground, escaping with marvel
ous adroitness as the hull came nour
him with ferocious intent.
Tho totora Bonita del Anio then sat
on a chair in thc middle of thc arena
and calmly awaited tho onslaught of ii
fresh animal, lu tho twinkling of an
e>e she was caught on thu bull's horns
and was tos-ed high in the air, fulling
stunned lo tho ground. This was thc
mos; deplorable pari of the perform
ance and 110 more serious accidents
Hie quadrille ol' men instantly at
tracted tho bull's at lent ion from bis
prostrate prey and tho woman was
quickly sprinkled with water or vine
gar and rose apparently uninjured
From tho ground. Uer light clothes
were torn to shreds. Fruto-, ropoated
tho chair movement, but, more adroit
lhan (be woman, be nimbly sprang
aside Indore thc bull could bear down
on him and jual escaped a terrible
horn thrust. Six bulls lu all were let
loose. Thc women's performaucos
were great failures.
GUANO A EMT OF TM ti KKI'l'III.U'.
Who Originated tho Iden ami What it lias
Tho Ol'dcr Ol Hie (?rand Army of
the Republic was organized in tho
Slate ol Illinois e.u ly in I he year 1866.
To Dr. B. F. Stephenson, of Spring
field, 111., belongs tho honor of sug
gesting lin* (urination of this union ol'
voteran soldiers and ol' launching the
Organization into existence. The ob
ject of the combination was to afford
assistance to disabled and unemployed
soldiers. Dr. Stephenson had been !
surgeon in a volunteer regiment dur
ing thc war, and was firmly convinced
i ind an organization of thc leturned
volunteers tor mutual benofit was im
peratively needed. A ritual was
drafted under bis supervision, and thc
first post of thc new order was formed
at Decatur, III. Oilier posts were
soon mustered throughout Illinois and
contiguous Slates and thc First De
partment (State) Convention was held
at Springfield, Ul., duly l?, 1866.
General .John M. Palmer was there
olectcd department commander. Oc
tober 81, IMG, Dr. Stephenson, as
.provisional commander-in-chief, sent
out an order to nil tho Posts then
formed, calling for thc first National
Convention of tho Grand Army of the
Republic. This was held in Indian
apolis, ind., on November 20 follow
ing, and representatives wore present
from the Mates of Illinois, Missouri,
Kansas, Wisconsin, New York, Penn
sylvania, Ohio, Iowa, Kentucky, In
diana and thc District of Columbia.
Generai S. A. Hurlbut wae elected as
commander in-chief During thc your
1867 tho order spread rapidly. Tho
various States completed their work of
department organization and Posts
were formed in all the largo towns
and in many counties. Tho second
National Encampment, meeting at
Philadelphia, Pa., January 16, 1808,
found thc order in a most promising
condition. In 1868 thc first observance
of May 80 as a Memorial Day by the
Grand Army was ordered. May ll,
1870, this dato was lixed upon for an
nual observance by an article adopted
as a part of tho rules and regulations
of the order. Unfortunately, during
tho warmly-contested political cam
paign nf 1868, (ho idea that tho army
was intended as a political Organiza
tion gained currency, with thc result
of injuring tho order greatly. A
heavy dccicase of membership fol
lowed, causing almost a total disrup
tion of tue order in thc West. In
May, "1869, a chungo in the ritual wn
made, providing for three grades of
membership, but this met with little
favor, and in 1871 ali sections provid
ing for degrees or ranks among mem
bers were stricken from tho rulos ot
tho order. At the same timon rule
Was adopted prohibiting the usc of the
organization for any partisan purpose
Whatever, a principio which has ever
since boen strictly adhered to.

How to Make a Cigar Dane?on a nut -An
Ka?Uy Performed Trlek.
A hut is borrowed; Hkowiao a cigar.
Tho performer breathes on tho latter
to mesmerize it and declares that when
so mesmerized ho cati compel it to
Stand upright on thc crown or tho hat.
Ho ondcavors to mako it stand up
accordingly, at first without succoss,
hut presently tho cigar does actually
stand upright, eolf-supported, on thc
crown. At command ?t viii bow to
tho company, salute lie adios on the
right, tho ladies on the toft, and so on.
Tho performer thou asks for a little
music, and b *,rin6 to move thc hut
shout, still orown upward, first in ono
hand Hu n in the other. Thc cigar
retains its vertical position, but sways
about, sometimes to one side, some
times tho other, as if endeavoring to
keep timo to tho music. At any
moment tho performer can request a
spectator to tako the cigar from thc
hat and lo satisfy himself that it is not
attached in any way.
Tho seeming mystery rests on tho
uso, of a very simple piece of apparias
-a little rod about the size of a [lead
pencil, hut rather thicker, of ebony or
some oilier heavy wood, and with a
needle-point an inch long projecting
from one end of it. Thc performer
gets this inside tho hat and in Iiis pre
tended ( Hurts to balauce the cigar on
the hat pushes the needle-point up
through thc crown and into tho cud ot
the cigar, which thenceforward sticks
upright Oil tho point. Any inclina
tion given to the ebony rod within tlie
hat will naturally make the cigar bend
in the opposite direction and so to
salute tho company, etc.
Thc hand may now grasp thc brim
of Hie hat only, leaving thc ebony rod
swinging free within tlie hat, und as it
swings it will communicate a swaying
motion to Hie cigar above, as if atl'ectd
by the music.
When the trick is completed you
invite some spectator to take the cigar
from tl?;! hat. Al the same moment
that his lingers touch thc cigar you
withdraw the needle-point from below
when i lie cigar naturally falls and
nothing whatever remains to indicate
thc me.ins that supported it. Tho
performer immediately begins to
brush Iiie lint willi bis handkerchief
and uiidor cover of so doing is enabled
without difficulty to smuggle away
into hid sleeve or pocket the little

A Mohammedan Joke.
It is tho belief among the Mohan

forty mornings in succession at til

the person so doing shall have goo

the picture of bad luck and impi'OV
donee. JSvory morning early he r<
paired to tho groat Mosque of Si
Sophia and invariably found sumo on
ahead of him, thus breaking th
diann, One morning, as usual, li
discovered thc earlier devotee, and, n
he proved to be tho same one all th

am poor and need good luck. Fe
many mornings 1 have come hither t
prav, each time earlier than before
Give mc a chance; tell nie how you gc
herc earlior than I overy day." T
which thc early devotee replied : "
liavo two wives. When I awake i
the morning, one brings mc my sli]
pers, Ihe other n<\ ubi ul ion bowl, un
by those wives at w id ing to my waul
together, I am enabled lo be off carlie
for prayers than if I had only on
