OWNEY. THE DOG.
Hfl Has Traveled Almost Around the
"Owney,"the clever and popular post
office dog, has tiaveled over almost every
postal route in North America, and tags
and "medals, collected from his friends
along the way. amounting to a bushel or
more, are kept in the Postoffice Depart?
ment at Washington.
In 1895 he visited Postmaster A. B.
Case, of Tacotna, Washington, haying
just returned from a trip to Alaska, and
one day it happened that Oney rode down
to the wharf of the Asiatic steamer,
when the great vessel was taking her I
He so plainly expressed a desire to go
aboard thai it was determined to send
him on a flying trip around the world,
and to let him break the record if possi?
ble. So, some days later, on August 19,"
1895, his friends said farewell to Owney,
as he walked up the *ini;\vay of the
good ship Victoria. Owney had his cre?
dentials in a traveling bag. and he carried
also his blanket, brush* and comb, his
medal harness for full dress and" letters
of introduction tu the postal authorities
ui the world.
>?*Owiicy waif soon the pet of the crew,
and after an uneventful voyage he arriv?
ed at Yokohoma on October 8. Here his
baggage was examined, with no little
curiosity, by the officials, as no dignitary
bad before entered Japan who owned SO
many decorations that he was obliged to
carry them about with him in a bag!
It was concluded that Owney must l>e
either a dog of very high rank or the
property of a distinguished person, and
an account of him was promptly forward?
ed for the information of His Imperial
Majesty, the Mikado.
A few days later an official waited
upon Owney and presented bim ~T with a
passport bearing the seal of the Mikado.
It was addressed to the American do,' 1
traveler and in a very flowery language
extended him the freedom of the interior
country. There were some stipulations.
"The bearer is expressly cautioned to ob?
serve in every particular the directions
of the Japanese government printed on
the b:ick of the passport, and he is ex?
pected ?od required to conduct himself
in an orderly and conciliatory manner
toward the Japanese nuthorlties"and i.
pie." The passport aNo forbade him to
"attend a fire on horseback.'' warned
him not. to write "on temples, shrines
or walls."and politely requested him not
to '"drive too fast on narrow roads."
After meeting many officials, Owney
sailed from Yokohoma. arriving at Kobl
on October J, where he received medals
and a new passport from the emperor.
He was at Maji. Shanghai and Foochow,
where also he received more medals and
was the subject of an ovation. His fame
had preceded him, and at the latter port
he received an invitation to vi?it the
United States steamer "Detroit," which
was lying in the harbor.
One day the marine at the irangway of
this line man-of-war was astonished to
see a bemuddled shaggy dog route up the
ladder wagging his tail and showing all
the delight that a patriotic American
should at the sight in foreign lands of the
Stars and Stripe-. The marine almost
laughed as Owney stepped aboard and
ran up to the officer of the deck as
though he had known him all of his life.
Owney dined in the mess room, ate
plumdufT and lobscousc before the mast.
When be bade his countrymen farewell
he was decorated with the ship's ribbon
and he received a letter of ".introduction
to other oilicers of the Asiatic squadron.
From Foo Chow the dog sailed to Hong
Kong, where he was unfortunately de?
layed and prevented from making a speed
record around the world. He visited the
consulate, made a round of visits to the
rich tea anil silk merchants and received
many curious pieces of Chinese money,
which were strung to bis collar. From
the emperor of China Owney received a
passport bearing tlx.' royal crest ami
dragon, permitting him to travel in the
country. But Owney did not go beyond
the city, and Captain Pan ton, of the Vic?
toria, finally took the dog-traveler back
to Kobi. Japan, from which port he final?
ly Bailed to New York, as the guest of
Captain Grant, of the steamer "Port
Owney knew all on board, and, as on
the Victoria, was a member of both star?
board and port watches, and dined in the
cabin atid before the mast with equal
At Singapore Owney enl ashore with
an officer, to the wonderment of the na?
tives, who, noting his decorations, con?
cluded he was a personage of high rank.
On November 80 Owney sailed from
I'ort Said and on the trip he attracted no
little attention from passing vessels and
from postal authorities. Some of the
clerks gave Owney medals. Finally Al?
giers was reached and the shipping port
visited, where Turks. Nubians and others
looked upon Owney with amazement.
They handled his decorations, and some,
though perhaps they did not understand
just why, fastened to his collar medals
which WGTe tints sent to the American
people. On December 13 Owney reached
Sr. Michaels, the beautiful port of the
Azores, spending a few hours there.
The trip from Azores across the Atlan?
tic Was a rough one, but finally the look?
out on the Port Phillips was sighted,
and the custom house officers decided
that Owney's great collection of medals
and tags, though representing a large
amount of metal, was personal baggage
and so passed it.
Owney arrived in Xew York December
28, at noon. He was taken immediately
to the postofilce, and after a short recep?
tion by his many friends, started again
by the Xew York Central for Tacoma,
which he reached five days later, having
completed the circuit of the globe in 182
days?a rapid rate of traveling for a dog
who attracted bo much attention. Owney
was visited by hundreds, young and old,
and so universal was the demand to see
him that Postmaster Case placed him on
exhibition in a public hall, and people for
miles around made his acquaintance.
At the end of his trip Owney had over
200 tags, medals and certificates to add
to his collection, and lie is to-day, in all
probability, the best known ami the
most, universally popular dog in the

Miss Florence Wright, who lives at
Brinckley, Ark., went out for a walk just
outside of the town at in o'clock Monday
night. She took her father's pistol with
her to protect herself from the dogs that
infest the neighborhood, which is thickly
settled. She had gone but a short dis?

Gould, a big neuro. She resisted ami
drew her pistol, with which she threaten?

tlie weapon from her, and taking her in
bis anus, carried her into the woods.
Seeing the butt of the revolver sticking
from her assailant's hip jioeket. the girl
snatcked it and shot him in the bead,
bursting out his right eye. The brute

MAN VERSUS WOMAN
Phsically, men luve the indisputable
superiority in strength, and .women in
beauty." Intellectually, a certain infer?
iority of the female sex can hardly be
denied, when we remember how almost
exclusively the foremost places in every
department of science, literature and art
have been occupied by men. how infini
tesimally small is the number of women
who have shown in any form the highest
order of genius, how many of the great?
est men have achieved their greatness in
defiance of the most adverse circumstan?
ces, and how completely . women have
failed in obtaining the first position, even
in music or painting. for the cultivation
of which their circumstances would ap?
pear most propitious. It is as impossible
to find a female Raphael or a female
Handel a-a female Shakespeare or New?
ton. Morally, the general superiority of
women over men is. I think, unquestion?
able. 11 we take the somewhat coarse
and inadequate criterion of police statis?
tics, we find that while the male and fe?
male populations are nearly the same in
number, the crimes committed by men
are usually rather more than live times
as numerous as those committed by wo?
men. Self-sacrifice is the most con- I
spicuous element of a virtuous ami reli- I
gioUS character, and it is certainly far i
less common among men than among '
women, whose whole lives are usually
s[K.'iit in yielding to the will and consult
ing the pleasures of another. There are
two great departments of virtue?the Im?
pulsive, oi- that which springs spontan?
eously from the emotions, and the de?
liberative, or that which is performed in
obedience to the sense of duty, and in
both of these I "imagine women are su?
perior to men. Their sensibility is great?
er; they are.more chaste, both in thought
and act; more tender to the erring, more
compassionate to the suffering, more
affectionate to all about them,?William

BOGS OF BOTH METALS.
TROPICAL INSECTS THAT TRULY
RESEMBLE SILVER AND GOLD.
Melted by the Ignorant?A Superstitious
Story That Genuine Metal Can Be Ex
traded From the Bugs is Still Current
in Europe?The Golden Rosechafer of I
What is all this talk about golden bugs,
silver hugs, and straddle bugs! Are
there any stich creatures in the insect,
world! The answer is, decidedly, yes.
There are several species of bugs which
are reputed to contain considerable quan?
tities of gold and silver. Ou account of
this belief, people sometimes gather them
and melt them. The most popular gohl
producing insect is the golden rosechafer,
which is known to science as Cetonia
liuratll. It is a very handsome yellow
beetle.with a metallic luster, about as big
as the end of a man's thumb.
Hut the most remarkable gold bugs in
the world are found in Central America.
They belong to the genus Plusiotis, ami
one might easily imagine a specimen to
be the work of some clever artificer in
metal. The head and wing-cases are
brilliantly polished, with a luster as of
gold itself. To sight and touch they have
all the seeming of metal, and it is hard
to realize that the creature is a mere
animal. Oddly enough, there Is another
species of Plusiotis, fri mit he same region,
which has the appearance of being
wrought in solid silver, freshly burnish?
These gold and silver beetles have a
market value. They are worth from $25
to$50each. The finest collection of them
in existence to-day is owned by Walter
Rothschild, of the Rnglisb banking firm.
Though a young man. only twenty-five
years of age. he has already spent $200,
ooo on beetles. Every year he sends two
men to Central America to gather beetles.
One of the most beautiful bugs in the
world is a small beetle known to science
as the "blue lioplia." Its back is an e.\
quisite iridescent sky-blue, and the under
part of its body is of a bright silver hue.
The notion that, it contains silver Is wide?
ly entertained, and attempts have fre?
quently been made to extract silver from
(>ne of Napoleon's marshals,by the way.
\\as a great collector of insects. His
name was Dejean. and he was reputed
the handsomest man of his time. He pro?
vided every soldier in one of bis regi?
ments with a helmet that contained in its
! toil a piece of cork. The men were ins?
tructed, when on the march, to keep a
-harp lookout for beetles, and. whenever
they found one. to stick it in their helmets
with a pin. Dejean made a greater re?
putation as an entomologist than as a
military leader, and, when he died in
1S4!1. he left behind him a collection of
80,000 species of beetles?the largest col?
lection at that time in the world. This
collection was scattered by sale, a consid?
erable part of it being purchased by an
enthusiast in the same line named Ober
thur. Oberthur is still living. He and
his brother, who is a collector of but?
terflies, have a chateau at Reimes filled
In parts of Europe the ignorant people
are confident 4n their belief that the so
called "silversmith" contains more or
less precious metal. It looks like a big
June bug, its color being between silver
and gold. For both of these metals it has
been melted many and many a time. For?
merly it was supposed to lie quite a rari?
ty, so that a specimen was worth $5 or
more. Hut it was discovered a few j ears
ago that this beautiful beetle was very
common in cottonwood trees, on the
leaves of which it feeds, and it' is cheap
enough now. If you know where such
trees are to 1?; found, you may gather
hundreds of the "silversmiths" in a day.
It Used to Ik- Commonly believed that
these insects lived exclusively in chim?
neys, and happy was the householder
who chanced upon one, for it was sup?
posed to bring good luck and the promise
The notion of extracting gold and sil?
ver from insects seems to Ik'of very an?
cient origin. When people fail in the pro?
cess, they are convinced usually that
there was something wrong with the
method employed. In Mexico the na?
tives believe that the surest way to find
a gold or silver mine is to watch a gold or
silver beetle and follow it. Painstaking?
ly pursued, it is almost sure to lead the
seeker to the deposit of precious metal,
or mayhap to a buried treasure.
Thus far only gold bugs and silver
bugs have been discussed; the straddle
bugs remain to be considered. This is
not so easy, because there is an extra?
ordinary number of species. One Euro?
pean collector has succeeded in getting
together 22,000 species of straddle bugs.
The straddle bugs are (lung beetle-: they
are the little fellows who roll balls of
animal excrement and lay their eggs in j
them. When the eggs are hatched the
young larvae feed on the material of tin
ball until they tire able to take care of
themselves. Some of tin- straddle bugs
have huge horns and are very queer
looking creatures indeed.?Washington
