Hare , the'HIhwayman.
Hare was the Dick Turpin of hia
day and an associate of Murrell nnd
Mason , the Mississippi bandits. The
principal interest attached to his ca
reer was his connection with thealleg-
cdplot to kidnap President Madison
and deliver him over to Admiral
Cockburn , the commander of the
British fleet. When in August , 1814 ,
the British , under Gen. Ross , entered
Washington and burned the cupitol
and most of the public buildings , it
was evident that they nnust have
been guided by men who knew the
Hare was n soldier in the American
army , and had been released from
jail to enlist in the service. In the
same company was an Irish in un
named Fan-en , who was ti British
deserter. He sounded Hare as to
the possibility of seizing the president
and taking him down the Potomac
to the English fleet.
Two other men were to be secured
and the project carried out. Fan-en
wanted money , and to get it under
took to rob a man on the road near
Washington , but his intended victim
was a powerful , resolute fellow , and
shot Farren , who died the following
day. He had always claimed to Hare
that he had been ofiered a thousand
pounds for securing the president ,
and that Gen. Jtoss was in the
Hearing of Farren's mishap , Hare
got apprehensive that the Irishman
had betrayed him , so he stole his
captain's horse and escaped to Balti
more. After a reckless career in com
pany with his young brother Louis
and a well known criminal named
Alexander , he stopped the mail at
Havre de Grace ana got § 13,700 in
specie and notes. The entire party
were captured in Hunt's clothing
store in Baltimore the next day.
Alexander and Hare were hanged ,
and the brother was given a ten year
sentence. PhiladelDhia Times.
Guarded by Their Subjects ,
One often sees on the streets of
Athens a pleasant looking couple
walking arm jn arm. They are not
past middle age , and have the air of
people whose debts are paid , whose
consciences are clear and whose di
gestions are always good. They are
dressed in ordinary citizen's garb. In
side the collar of his coat is the trade
mark of a famous London tailor , and
the bill for her quiet but stylish walk
ing gown bears the imprint of a Paris
They always seem to be sightseeing ,
gazing into shop windows , looking
into new buildings , observing the
throngs of passers by , or , when all
elsefails , admiring the blue skies and
bright sunshine ot the City of the Vi
olet Crown. No regalia glitters on
their bosoms , no liveried guard attend
them. They make their way through
the crowd , jostling and being jostled
with unfailing good humor. Some
times they may be seen standing on
the curb or on some house step , wait
ing to see a procession pass by or
watching an illumination or other
Again , "the gentleman may be seen
riding on horseback alone or attended
by a comrade , but in civilian dress ;
or the lady may be seen on the prome
nade , escorting or being escorted by
a huge Danish dog. But one notices
that a great many people and all the
officers and soldiers salute them with
precise courtesy , and from this cir
cumstance the conclusion is at last
reached that they must be people of
considerable importance. They are ,
in fact , the kins : and queen of Greece.
Not a Biped ,
The burning of the Whittier school
building , at Fortress Monroe , a short
time since , recalls to mind an amus"
ing incident which occurred there
about the close of the war , says tlie
New York Tribune. At that time
there was a mania among colored
people for education , and the school
was made up ot all sexes and ages.
At the end of a year an exhibition
was given to show what progress Had
been made , to which a number of
prominent people were invited. The
teacher said that if any person in the
audience wished to ask the students
any questions they could do so. A
strapping big fellow who wore only
a shirt , trousers , and a pair of govern
ment shoes , was called on to read.
He got along very well until he reach
ed the word "biped. " Here a gentle
man in the audience interrupted , when
the following dialogue occurred :
"My man , what is the meaning of
the word biped ? "
"A biped is a beast. "
' Why is a beast a biped ? "
"Because it has four feet. "
"Are you a biped ? "
"No. sir. "
"Why ? "
"Because I hasn't got four feet. "
"What are jou then ? "
"I'se a cuped. "
The shout of laughter which greet
ed this almost b'roke up the exhibi
An Irreverent Subject.
That was a queer experience which
Queen Victoria underwent recently
as she was being driven from the
railway station to Windsor castle.
An elderly female broke through ihe
police cordon and rushed after the
royal carriage shrieking out that
she "must speak to the old woman. "
The unfortunate stranger was ar
rested and locked up on a charge of
intoxication , but her majesty's nerves
received a shock frum which they did
not recover for at least twenty-four
A Grateful Legislator.
From th * New York Stnr.
It is related of one of the most rug
ged of the rural Empire State sena
tors that he was in New York City on
Saturday with his wife , shopping.
He did not like the business , and he
stood outside on the sidewalk while
his spouse leisurely turned over all
sorts of wares in one of the biggest
dry-good stores. As usual she lin
gered , and he grew more and more
impatient and angry. He walked
up and down in front of the store ,
and began to swear to himself.
Presently a stalwart policeman laid
his hand on his shoulder. "See here ,
my man , " said the officer , "you'd
better move on. "I've got my eye
on you. "
"What for ? " asked the Senator.
"Don't bandy any questions , "
said the officer. "You are a suspi
cious character ; that's enough. "
"I ? " cried the senator , in amaze
ment , "I ? Why , 1 am senator ,
of County , and here are my cre
dentials , " and he pulled out a bunch
of letters and passes with his name
on them. "And my wife is in there
shopping and I am waiting for her. "
The officer saw at ores that he
was wrong , and was furtl or convinc
ed when the senator's \ \ I . t ame out
and addressed him by nniup.
" 1 see that I was mistaken , " said
fche officer , in apolojry. "and I hope
pou will excuse me. 1 did not know
j'ou , or of course I would not have
applied such an epithet to you. "
"You think I am not a suspicious
character ? "
"Certainly not. "
"I'm glad of it , " said the senator ,
ivith a burst of gratitude. "That's
fche first tribute to my honesty that
t've got since I entered the Legisla
ture , six years ago. "
The Doctor and the Beauty. .

Dn Fifth avenue , New York , prides
himself , says a Boston Herald correspondent
pendent , upon the favor with which
he is rpgarded by women. In this
respect he is decidedly unadmirable ,
but his skill as a physician enables
aim to rank high in his profession
Jespite his conceit. The other day
Je received a summons to call on a
roung woman famed for her beauty ,
bhe was a new patient for him , and ,
as he arranged his cravat with extra
precision before entering his carriage ,
de fancied himself on the brink of an
unusual conquest. Reaching the
bouse , he was shown into the recep
tion room , where , a moment later ,
de was joined by the beautiful girl
ivhom he had been called to attend.
"Ah ! " exclaimed he , rising to greet
tier , "you nre not , then , ill enough to
be in bed. "
"Oh ! I am not ill at all , " cried the
"Some other member of the family ? "
isked the doctor , rather disappoint
"Well , " said the young girl , "we

It is my little fox terrier , 'Dixie. ' He
has a bone in his throat , and 1 thought
7ou might be able to remove it. "
With freezing dignity the doctor

"Hehad expressed a desire to meet
me , " said the beauty , speaking of the
matter afterward to a friend , "and
he did so in a very insulting way. I
tvas told of it , and I decided to give
him an opportunity to form my ac
How the Typewriter was In
In connection with a friend , Sam
uel W. Soule , a printer and inventor ,
C. L. SUoles was engaged in Milwau
kee during the winter of 18G6 and
1867 in develoqing a machine for
printing the numbers of pages on
the leaves of blank books , after the
books were bound , and for printing
the serial numbers on bank notes.
Carlos Glidden , a friend ofSholes
with an inventive fancy , took great
interest in the paging machine and
asked why a similar contrivance
could not be made that would write
letters and words instead of figures
and numbers. The three men work
ed together upon this idea , butSholes-
evolved the main part of the ma
chine. He suggested pivoted types
set in n , circle. The principal con
tribution of Mr. Glidden was his sug
gestion that such a machine ought
to be made. In September , 18G7 , a
machine was finished and letters
written with it. The invention was
far from being a perfect writing ma
chine , but one of the letters , sent to
James Dinsmore , of Meadville , Pa. ,
so interested him that he offered to
pay all ihe expenses up to date for a
one-fourth interest. His offer was
accepted. Soule and Glidden subse
quently dropped out , leaving Sholea
and Dinsmore sole proprietors.

more tban 15 per cent , of the theo
