Major ( now Sir P. ) Lumsden
was in Afghanistan the Sardar of Can
dahar expressed a desire one day to see
the rifle practice of the English. In the
course of the shooting he saw some spar
row's heads shot off , and , while express
ing great astonishment at the feat , re
marked that it was much more difficult
to shoot at a hen's egg and smash it
than to knock off any number of spar
rows' heads. The Major and his friends
laughed at this nice difference ; but the
Sardar was determined that his asser
tions should be at once put to the test ,
and accordingly ordered one of his at
tendants to fetch an egg and suspend it
agaipst the opposite wall of the court.
This being done firing was commenced
by the Englishmen , and to their amaze
ment , after some dozen shots , the egg
was unharmed. The Sardar and his at
tendants maintained their gravity and
every moment volunteered some excuse
for the miss , as each bullet failed to
smash the egg. Presentlyby accident ,
a ball happened to sever the thread by
which it was suspended , and down fell
the egg upon the pavement below , but
to the astonishment of Major Lumsden
and his friends , did not smash. The trick
was now apparent , and they joined the
Sardar and his friends in a hearty laugh
at the deception. The trick had been
pre-arranged by the heir-apparent , who
had prepared the egg by having its con
tents blown out through a hole in the
nd. The empty eggshell as light as a
feather , was pushed aside by the wind
of the bullet , and could not be struck.
GEN. LOOAN is credited with the fol-
owing language toward President Cleve-
and and his policy : "It is fashionable
to say that the administration is doing
fairly well. It is fashionable to say he
s coming up to the expectations of the
friends of civil service reform. Yet this
civil service reformer at the head of a
reform administration changed 200 fed
eral officers in a single day to make room
for partisans. History has never heard
of the like before. It may never hear
of the like again. When Lincoln came
nto power he had democrats to deal
with , although he was elected as a re
publican. This man has removed more
o'fficials in a month than Lincoln remov
ed jn a year. We have held Andrew
Jackson up to execration as one of the
_ reat spoilsmen of history. Yet this
man in four months has made more re
movals than Jackson made in his entire
.dministration. "
A VERY offensive partisan democratic
postmaster in the democratic convention
of Iowa in a nominating speech said ,
"The eyes of all the democrats that
sleep in heaven are Upon us to-day. "
This created a great "guffaw" in the
convention. The idea that there were
any democrats in heaven was funny ; the
further fact that they would be asleep
when appointments at the rate of two
hundred per day were being made , was
more funny , and that the eyes of demo
crats that were asleep could be "on"
anybody was too funny. His man. was
beaten. Exchange.
A CINCINNATI heiress recently mar
ried an Italian count , and brought him
to this country with her. When he
reached Cincinnati , he became very de
spondent and melancholy. Her doctor
said he was home-sick , and advised her
to supply him with some of the scenes
of his home. She accordingly bought
him a monkey and a hand-organ , and
since then he has gained over forty
pounds , and is training for a rowing
match.
MOKE than five hundred thousand
cases of bowel complaint have been cur
ed by Chamberlain's Colic , Cholera and
Diarhcea Remedy. Only think of the
pain and suffering it has relieved , the
agony and distress it has prevented ; the
homes it has made happy ; the lives it
has saved , and you will appreciate the
good worfc it has done. 25 cent , 50 cent

SHERMAN , as the apostle of the bloody
shirt , is a good deal like the small boy
who suddenly began to cry without any
apparent provocation , and who , in re
sponse to maternal inquiries , explained
that he had mashed his finger the day
before and didn't cry then because he
was playing and didn't have time.
BOOTS are seldom worn in the even
ing , and undressed kid is the fjivorite
material for slippers , says a i'ashion
journal. It may be added that slippers
are not a favorite with the undressed kid.
MANY a man might have died and
"the innumerable caravan"

teemed as one having mediocre ability
and sense , had his voice not betrayed his
asininity.
