Tbo Appearance of the Auricalar Appendage
Indicative of Character.
"I used to notice when 3 l^d," said
a successful business man lately to a
reporter, "that in making the final
OTC-Jtvle nmm+rr fairs nn the QlialitV
of all sorts of blooded stock, the judges
universally examined the ears of the
animals. Whether it were a thorough
bred horse, a Berkshire hog, a dog of
any special breed, from a toy terrier to ;
a bull or a pointer, or whether it were ;
a Cotswold or Southdown sheep, the ;
car was always one of the chief points,
and if that were faulty, all the other .
good qualities went for naught. This
set me thinking that, as men represent
every quality known to the brute creation,
the ears of men would bo likely to
serve as pretty sure indices of character.
I then commenced studying.
First of all I procured a good specimen
of what we will call the normal human
ear, one tasen irom me neaa oi s man
of good character and in whom all the
various qualities and propensitiss had
been about evenly balanced, a levelheaded,
practical man of the world.
This ear I studiod until I had thoroughly
mastered all the convolutions and
surfaces that it presented. I've bought
hundreds of them and now have
ABOUT 200 TYPICAL EAltS
that I'll show you." Wijh this the old
gentleman unlocked his ^afe and produced
two packages tied up in oiled '
silk, soft and flexible as kid, and semitransparent
Untying one of theso
packages, there fell out on the table a
number of nondescript fragments of
mummified-looking stuff, which, on
examination, proved to be dried, or
rather partially tanned, human ears,
all in a perfect state of preservation, so
far as the retention of shape is concerned.
"Why, where did you get all
these?* "bought'emof course. "Of

would be of no use to me. They would
serve no purpose in the way of study;

marked-that one type is sufficient to
know all by, while paupers have no

people stare if they should exhume
their deceased relatives and find that
they are sleeping the last sleep with

last trump. The most obstinate fool I
ever had to deal with was a half-starving
artist whose ear I wanted to get on
account of its remarkable formation.
He was a man of extraordinary business
affairs, but a genius. I offered that
$500 FOR ONE OF HIS EARS,
and the stupid fellow refused it. He
wis poor, hatf starved; didn't I believe,
know where to get the next meal
for himself and his wife and children,
and one would have thought ihat he
would have jumped at the chance to
get $500 for such a trifling inconvenience.
1 offered to supply him with a
false ear, so as to keep up appearances,
but he would not listen to me, and I
missed one of the lincst opportunities
of my life. I opened this particular
package to show you one very remarkable
example. Hero are all sorts of
ears; ears of men who are greatly im^
ear, lor instance, of a revivalist; ears
of pronounced atheists, cars of honest
men and ears of rogues; ears of cute
lawyers and ears of duH money-grab^
bers, whose only study in life has been
how to hold on to a doilar. Here's the
ear of a somewhat noted newspaper
man. Now, just see how the lobe of
that ear goes down into the check; in*

I don't say, mark you, that every one
who has an ear o; that formation is a
thief, but I do say that he has the propensities
o? one, and only needs opportunity
or temptation to develop them.
This ear., in its principal characteristic,
is almost the counterpart of a pair
that are worn by a man of former high
standing in the business world, bat
who is now serving a term in the penitentiary.

bave robbed me in some way had he

ear. You see this thin cartilage,
with the roll disappearing in the' northeast
corner and the ear itself coming
almost to a point, somewhat like a
fox's. That is the ear of a keen, unscrupulous,
one of those who seem to take a
positive delight in oppressing the unfortunate
and in wringing from them
extortionate interest for small accommodations.
Some of these ears set weU
back like a fox's when it is snarling;
they are the worst cases. In others

cunning than cruel, but they are not
very pleasant folks at the best Others
of this sort, again, are movable at the
will of their owners. These chaps add
to their other amiable qualities a quarrelsome
disposition that will make
them snap and snarl at everything and
everybody. The only way is to select
a few noteworthy specimens. Study
the ears of .some, men whose character
you are well acquainted With,and mark
their respective peculiarities. Then
compare those of men of similar characteristics,
and see where their strong
est resemblances are; the first discovery
of a principle for yourself is the only
difficulty. If any one is abont to get
married, I conld tell him whether the
woman he is about to wed is likely to
agree with him or not. Oh, you may
set it down for a fact that the ear is the"
true index of character. Tell me before
you print anything about this, and

Dr. Holmes on His Poems. i
At a recent session of the BostonWomen's
Educational and Industrial
Union Dr. Holmes was greeted with
perfect ovation by his audience. The'
first selection was "Old Ironsides,'*
that piece dear to the heart of every
school-boy orator and almost as fami-<
liar as a household word. It is one of
Dr. Holmes5 earliest productions, but
from the manner in which it was rendAriiVJ
if. ksij pvidprit that the fire and?
spirit which originally inspired the
writer were not yet extinguished. "The'
next .piece. 1 will read," said the doctor,
"was composed at a time whea".
physicians were not so much given to4
teetotalism as at present It wast,
written for a gathering at the residence
6f Dr. Reynolds when I loaned him my
3iTver punch bowl.**"" "Dr. Holmes thenread
his poem, "On -Lending a Punch
Bowl." The-foilowiaglines, read with
that unctuous humor characteristic ot
Or. Holmes, caused great merriment:
Tlrat night affrighted from hl6 acrt the
6creainkig eo^le flew:
He beard the Pequot'a ringing whoop, the
soldier's wild halloo;
And there the sachem learned theiulehe
taught to kith sad Ida;
"-Run from the-white man when you And he
saieJis of lloH&ad ?ia."
The liext solectfon was tfie wellknown
poem entitled "Contentment"
John Quincy Adams;'1 said Dr.
Holmes, "wrote- a p<>em somewhat
similar to this, though i&ariy years
previous to my production.;; Like my
self, he borrowed a Iia&lrom unver
Goldsmkfe, but we arrived at rather
different results." The audience laughed
heartily on the reading of this poem,
and the modest requirements of the
man who wished to be contented.
"Bill and Jo" was then read. "This
poem," the doctor said, "was a particular
favorite of John G. Whittier." It
was followed by "Brother Jonathan's
Lament for Sister Caroline." "This
poem," said Dr. Holmes, "I am very
frvnH nf for even amon? his own writ
in^s a person has a preference. It was
written before the war, when South
Carolina first seceded, and I received a
number of letters from gentlemen residing
in that State which showed that
even during the war there was some
kindly feeling towards the Northerners.
1' That exceedingly comical poem,
"A Farewell to Agassiz," written when
the professor started on his trip of in
i.; ? A
YCSU^UtlUIl W tliC A.UUVO AIAVUUVUIUOf
was next read, followed by "The September
Gale" and "An Old Man's
Dreams." 4This last poem," said the
doctor, "was written in 1854, when I
considered myself a very old man,
much older than I do now." By special
request, Dr. Holmes read his wellknown
poem, "Dorothy Q." He gave
a brief description of the portrait on
which the piece was written, and stated
that the picture had undergone repairs
which would tend to preserve it for a
long time. The original canvas had
been removed from the back and new
cloth had been applied. It was at
nrosemt- hft saiil. in his library, where
he would be happy to show it to
any who might desire to see it. The
familiar lines gathered fresh beauty
from the lips of the author, particularly
the oft-quoted verse:
Soft Is the breath of maiden's Yes.
Not the light gossamer stirs vrith less,"
P ~ leger a cable that hokla ? ty|
rn.ll tho battj<JHBtei?voUUWttjH
And never i?n ocbo ofspeecnT>r s
That lives in the babbling air so long1.
The last selection was "The Chambered
Nautilus," which, Dr. Holmes
said, was the most carefully-prepared
of all his poems.
At the close of the readings the doctor
was thanked by Mrs. Gordon in
behalf of* the ladies. Mrs. Isabel
Hooker then stated that she wished to
say a word before the assembly dispersed.
She said that she remembered
one morning when she met Dr. Holmes,
and he was not in the. genial frame of
mind that he was at present. Sho
asked him what was the trouble, and
he replied that three things annoyed
him. First, he had consented to write
for the Atlantic Monthly once more;
second, that he had so much correspondence
on hand, and third, that
people would still persist in coming to
him for advice. "I told him," said
Mrs. Hooker, *'tnat ne snouia give up
writing for the Atlantic. He had fnr*
nished its columns with 'The Autoorat
of the Breakfast Table,1 and that was
quite enough. His correspondence
contained nothing but flattery, and ho
had had enough of that, and lastly
that having passed all his life in killing
people, he should not give any more
pills or advice. I think that he ought
to devote the rost of his existence to
reading his excellent poems to delighted
listeners. We all sincerely hope that
he can favor us again."
His Last Absent-Mindedness.
A friend sends us th<* following incident
as having happened in a neighboring
village: "I would like to tell
you of an incident of absent-mindedness
that cured a scbool-master entirely
of this often-comical mental defectiveness.
The bell was ringing for
school and the master's wife wanted a
pail of water and a hod of coal. To
save time the master strove to get both
the water and the coal at. the same
time. -He drew the water from an oldfAeh5r>ned
well, and ^ettin? his hod
filled with coal entere<f the house with
bis hands full. He walked up to the
sink and placed the hod of coal * where
the water-pail was usually kept, and
taking the pail of water into the sitting-room
poured it into the. stove.
The hissing steam blew open the stove
doors, issued from the coal-chamber
and every seam in the stove, scorched
the master, put out the fire, and filled
the house with steam.
"Amid it all issued the agonized
shout of the schoolmaster: 'Blast my
eyes! I've made another mistake!' He
never made another one. In the week
that he was done up in linen bandages
and goose grease his mind as well as
his body was restored to a healthy condition,
and now he says: 'Absence of
mind is a phase of idiocy of which a
sensible man ought to "be heartily
ash amed.' 1'?Norwich Bulletin.
A new order of physicians in Boston
holds that mind has control over matter,
and that all diseases will yield to
mental force in the physician. It is
uoDularlv called the "mind cure." and
marvelous stories are told of the working
of this new process in eradicating
the most obstinate diseases. A scientific
training is said to be needed for effective,
work along this line, and its
advocates have little sympathy with
Christianity or its supernatural forces.
But there is another party who aim to
combine science and Christianity, holdin
or that all disease is unnatural and
the result of sin. No Christian who
attains the true standard of piety need.

Porter o?i the Pa.11-Ha.mlle.
"Yes, we do have some peculiar experiences,'1
said an intelligent Pullman
car porter on the Pan-Handle
road to a Pittsburg Dispatch reporter.
"We run up against all sorts of people,
I nan tell vou. I remember one case
which left an impression on my mind
i which will not soon leave it It was on
this same train, Pan-Handle Xo. 4, and
r we had just run into the station at
Mingo Jnnction. A well-dressed young
: man, who looked as if he was sick or
j in trouble, came up to me and wanted
' to know if he could get a berth. Well,

} ?ull. So I told him that every-berth
was taken, and that it would be impossibly
for him to'get a place. He turned
around and walked away about fifteen
j feet, stopped suddenly:-and pulled a irei
Volver from his bip-pocket, and before
?'any one could siop him sl?t himself
J through., the- head. *He lived a few
[minutes. He was out of his mind,
! evidently, for he kept moaning: 'I
i didn't murder him! I didn't murder
jihimr We found out afterward that his
; name was Frank Leighton, and that he
i.lived in St. Louis, where he had relailtives
of hi^h social standing. He had
become dissipated, and in some club
quarrel a man was killed'. He was never
j charged with the crime, but he got the
< idea that suspicion rested on him, and
he disappeared from his home, and his
friends did not know where be had
gone until they heard of his suicide.
"Another case I shall remember as
long- as I live. A young New York
Hebrew, named Nathan, died in my
car. He was broken down in health
and went south to get well He spent
the winter down in New Orleans and
Galveston. He didn't get any better,
and in the spring started home. He
. knew he was going to die, and was terjribly
down-hearted. 1 had to be with
J him most of the time on the way up. I
rmade up his berth early in the evening,
rand he went to bed. I helped to undress
him and tucked him in. Two
hours later, when we got in Pittsburg
here, I looked into his berth, and he
was dead. Well, he was taken out
, here, but we didn't know any of his
friends and could not telegraph them.
They were waiting; for him, though,
when we got to Jersey City. They
didn't know he was dead. His father,
' a white-haired old man, and his sister,
a beautiful girl not more than 18 years
old, were at the depot, and were almost
the first people I saw when I
stepped down from the car. I had an
idea that they were his friends as soon
as I saw them, and It made me feel
shaky, I can tell you. 'Is Mr. Nathan
with you, porter?' asked the young
lady, looking kind and anxious Well,
1 just looked at her and then at the old
srentleraan, and I couldn't say a word.
I couldn't bear to tell them that be
was dead, and so I just said: 'No,
ma'am, be got off at Pittsburg.' Sbe
turned as white as a sheet, and said:
- Why, was he worse?' The oidman
;^:was so nervous that he just clung to
; - the lady as"if-he was afraid of falling.
A*I dpr1' Dettx'tsra.-' I managed to
' Just then: a young man came up,
I who I took to.be her brother. I called
I him to one side. I thought it would be
better for him to let them know than
for me. Well, sir, he was so badly
broke up that he just blurted out: *My
God, brother is dead.' It was the hardest
thing 1 ever saw. 1 thought the
girl wouid just go wild. They could
hardly get her away to the carriage.
The brother came back to Pittsbnrg
and took the body on home. 1 never
heard from them agaiu.

out and pottered up to the water-cooler
after a drink. When she started DacK
she forgot her berth, and her bashfulness
only made it worse. She got back
to what she supposed was her berth and
piled in. Well, I heard a swear and a
scream, and then the littlo woman,
frightened half to death, shot out of
the curtains and up the aisle to the
state-room, when I met her. You see
she had climbed in with an old gentleman
and lady from down in Texas,
whose berth was next to hers. The old
man was a cattle-dealer and a rough

and yelled 'thieves, murder,' till every
passenger in the car had his head out
of the curtains. The young husband
had been woke up and missed his wife
and he was almost wild, and came
running up the car to where his wife
was crying in the state-room. She just
fell in his arms and pretty near fainted.

go back to their berth for about an
hour?until they were again 3ure every
one had gone to sleep. I managed
everything so that no one but the old

^ A Big "Weir' In Arizona.
In some sections of the northern portion
of Arizona the question of water
supply, even for domestic purposes, is
a very serious one. This is particular
ly the case at Ash Jb'ork, a station on
the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad. A
series of very lovely and fertile valleys
surround the place, and plenty of grass
grows for the support of large herds of
cattle, but no water can be had except
from an occasional "tank" during the
winter season. At Ash Fork the railroad
company attempted to sink an artesian
well, but after reaching a depth
of 900 feet the drill became fastened
and could not be removed. Many futile
attempts were made to extract it,
but at last it was abandoned in despair.
All water now used at that station and
by the residents of the town is brought
by rail from Pach Springs, sixty-hve
miles to the westward, and is sold at
60 cents per barrel.
A short time ago a prospector, stimulated
by the inquiry for water, reported
that he had discovered a huge well,
about eight miles from Ash Fork, sunk
in a level plain. Parties at once repaired
thither with ropes and other
paraphernalia to explore the wondrous
discovery. They found the locality,
but to this day they do not know the
exact nature of the curious cavern that
met their gaze. It is located on a level
plain and cannot be seen until it is approached
very near. There is no evidence
of earth or rock having been removed
from the pit, which was found
to be 150 feet in diameter and 320 feet
deep, with perpendicular walls. No

descend and explore the "weH," when
the rope had been lowered, and the explorers
returned to Ash Fork scarcely
wiser than they were before their trip.
It is certainly a great curiosity, and
there possibly exists a supply of water

caverns or tunnels that apparently

An Astonishing Invention That Threatens
to Supersede All Others.
An invention has recently been perfected
at Philadelphia that bids fair to
revolutionize all existing systems of
electrical communication, both telegraphic
and telephonic. The secret
of it has been carefully guarded by the
inventors and the. small company of
large capitalists who control it while
it was being folly covered by patents,
both. American and foreign. Isow that
all is secure, it is to be suddenly sprung
upon the public by an exhibition at the
Continental hotel, probably during the
present week, as one of the gigantic
scientific surprises ui tut: uuutuiry. iu
state in. brief what it is, it is nothing
less than making telegraphy as simple,
rapid, and easily within the command
of everybody as is the operating of the
caligraph or type-writer. Effecting
what is claimed for it, it will be the
means of greatly reducing the cost of
telegraphy, of enabling the opening of
some lorry tnonsancr new texegrapn
stations in railroad and express offices
throughout the United States where
there have hitherto been none, and of
taking the place generally of the telephone.
Any person who can pick ont
a word on the keys of a type-writer
can transmit a message bs the system
accurately and with rapiaity, only restricted
by the speed of the picking,
! while, as for receiving messages, the
! instrument, does that automatically,
I whether there is anybody superintending
its operations or not There was
a private exhibition of the system recently,
the results attained at which
seemed to folly sustain all thut is
claimed for this most remarkable invention.
The instrument used is boih a transmitter
and a receiver. The two instruments
used in this exhibition were
connected Dy aoout one nunarea miies
of wire coiled about the offices. Each
appeared in its front part to be simply
an ordinary type-writer, with the letters,
numerals,- etc., on raised keys.
Behind this rises a small column with
blank paper wrapped around it and
moved np line by-line as required 1^ a
simple device. Inside that column is a
small hammer that strikes outwardly,
so as to? whenever a key is touched,
press the paper against the periphery
of a horizontal wheel that lies between
the keyboard and the column. On
that periphery, in high relief, are the
letters of the alphabet, numerals, and
points for punctuation. The wheel
spins around with lightning-like* rapidity
as the keys are successively touched
by an expert. When it has to recede
in the alphabetical order it flies back
v to a fixed, point, as does the wheel of a
gold and stock indicator, but mnch
more swiftly. All the delicate and
intricate electrical attachments necessarv
are below. and. when understood
are much less complicated than they
seem, their apparent complication being
caused by their multiplicity. A
separate "wire leads from each key to a
single common wire, and each of "those
key-connected wires serves either for
transmission or reception of messages.
The sending or receiving of a particu
Jar letter or figure is governed by the
strength, of current required for just
that individual -one, and for uo other.
It seems very strange that all those various
impulses should be flashed along
a wire?even in opposite directions at
the same time?without jostling each
other or getting mixed up, but they do.
Many messages were sent during tests
by non-experts at a speed of from forty
to fifty words per minute with greater
accuracy than is usually shown by expert
"sound" operators, and that speed,
it was affirmed, could be very greatly
increased. A noticeable and' valuable
feature of the system is that it prints
clearly in the sight of the person transmitting
a message just vrhat is being
sent to the receiver, so that errors are
avoided, or if committed are readily
corrected. The messages sent over a
wire by this instrument cannot be read
by sound, so that it is much more favorable
to the privacy often desirable in
business than either the Morse system
or the telephone. Inasmuch as the instrument
can be adjusted to any system
of wire communication and will "work
to as great distances as is required in
telegraphy it will be of inestimable value-to
railroad and express companies,
bankers, brokers, mechanics and the
general public. There are no formidable
complications in its construction,
and expert electricians who have examined
it pronounce it ono of the most
wonderful achievements of the age.

for it, and that it shows it can do, it

The Standard Oil Company is a big
thing on wheels when you get talking
about oil, but it is just as big relatively
speaking when you get into the province
of chewing gum. They control
.nearly all of the refineries, and it is
from that the gum is evolved, so to
speak. The refiners take the residuum
from the crude oil after the refined article
has been made and-work it in an
agitator, producing a certain grade of
paraffine, a wax-like substance. This
is sent to two firms located in Boston
and New York, who put k through another
refining process and then scent

through the second process, its cost is

that the General was very neat* to

the room where the sick "man
was,lyiug, and approached his side.
Instantly upon scanning the patieut's
face Dr. Douglas ordered the &mily to
be summoned to the bedside. Haste
was made, and Mrs. Grant, Mr. Jesse
Grant and wile, U. S. Grant, Jr., and
wife and Mrs. Col. Grant were quickly

had followed the doctors in from the ^
piazza, and the entire family was pressent,
except Col.- Fred. Grant. A
hasty, summons was seut for him, but
he entered the sick room while the
messenger was searching for him. The
Colonel seated himself~at the head of
the bed, with his left arm resting upon
the pillow above the head of the General,
who was breathing rapidly and
with siightlv gasping respirations.
Mrs. Grant, calm, but with intense
agitation bravely suppressed, took a
seat close by the* bedside. She leaned
slightly upon the cot, resting upon her
right "elbow and gazing with tearblinded
eyes into the General's face.
She found there, however, no tokeu of
recognition, for the sick raau was

shoulder witnessed the close of the life
in which she had constituted so strong

of the closing life which their efforts
and counsel had so prolonged. On the

The doctors noted, on entering
the room and pressing to the bedside,
that already the purplish tinge, which
is one of nature's signals of final dissolution,
had settled beneath the finger
nails. The hand that Dr. Douglas v
lifted was fast growing colder than it \
had been through the night, the pulse
had fluttered beyond the point where
the physician could distinguish it from

but happily the approach!ng v
end was becoming clear of the rattling
fulness of the throat and lungs, and as
the respirations grew rapid and more v
rapid at the close they also became less
labored and almost noiseless. This
fact was a comfort to the watchers by

sight of an agonizing or other than
peaceful death. The wife almost constantly

hands of the dying General, and at
times, as a passio'nate longing. to prevent

I)r. Shrady also drew near. It was
live minutes of 8 o'clock and the eyes
of the General were closing, his breathing
grew more hushed and the last
functions of the heart and longs were
hastened to the ending of the er-President's
life. The peaceful expression
seemed to be deepening in the firm and
strong lined face, and it was reflected
as a closing comfort in the sad hearts
that beat quickly under the stress of
loving suspense. A minute more
passed and was closing as the General
drew a deeper breath. There was an
exhalation like that of one relieved of
a long and anxious tension. Members
of the group were impelled each to
step nearer the bed and each awaited
another respiration, but it never came.

nurse closed the eyelids and composed
