SOME of the natives of India speak
a very bizarre English. One man
during an examination was told to
write an essay upon the horse, which
ho did in the following brief item:
"The horse is a very noblo animal, but
when irritated ho ceases to do so."
Another had to write upon the differ
ence between riches and poverty, and
he ended by saying: "In short, the
rich man welters on crimson and vel
vet, while the poor man snorts on flint."
From Judge Cunningham, a well
known Anglo-Iudian, came the follow
ing story in illustration of Indian po
liteness: "A Judge, who was a very
bad shot, had been out for a day's
sport and on his return the man who
went with him was asked: 'Well, how
did the Judge shoot to-day?' 'Oh,' he
replied, 'the Judge shoot beautifully,
but heaven was very merciful to the
birds!'"
A WESTERN pastor relates the fol
lowing suggestive incident: When
the lato Dr. Hodge was drawing near
the close of his life he spent two or
three days at my house. He discovered
in my study a piece of furniture he
greatly admired and asked me to buy
fpr him, if I could, a duplicate. Upon
receiving it from my hand he pulled
out of his pocket a purse in order to
reimburse me, bnt there was nothing
in it. I playfully remarked that his
treasures were all laid up in heaven.
He bade me pause to see if ho did not
still have all he needed for earth. He
soon found the change he was in search
of and handed it to me to pay for the
furniture, saying: "I have from boy
hood taken the precaution to have some
treasure at both ends of the journey."
This simple expression contains the
sum and substance of his masterly
ctomes on didatic theology. "r

A Senatorial Episode.
If the police will please look the
other way a.moment wo will slylv slip
in the following communication sent to
us by a youmorist, who appears to have
been marvelouslv inspired by the ma
jestic scene that lay before him as he
sat in the Senate gallery the other
day. He entitles his prose epic "A
-Senatorial Episode." It canters along
thus:
Sitting in the press gallery of the
Senate recently I saw a Moody Sonator
Beck to the Gray Butler, who seemed
to understand the signal, for he prompt
ly proceeded to Call the Stewart, who
hastily procured for the aforesaid Sen
ator a Berry.and a Plumb. Very scoa
thereafter he was seen to. clasp' both
hands over his Vest, from which it was
evident he was suffering great Payne.
Thereupon a Sawyer suggested that
the bestremedy was a little Bate taken
out of a black bottle, which was jjrompt
lv administered, and in a short time the
patient was as Hale as a country Squii-e
dozing in his Pngh during the Sunday
morning service.
"By. George," said he, "that little
Bate was worth a king's Hansom. Now,
when I get the Barbour to give me a
nice shave, and take a stroll on the
grass Piatt and down through the Pad
dock to the Quay, I will foel as happy
as the bank Teller who has escaped to
Canada with his pockets full of boodle.
Then when I get to my. quarters and
Frye any fish caught in'the Quay over
a good Coke fire, I will be ready to go
to bed. and bid Farwell to 'earthly
cares."
Now, he who cannot seo the point of
this story should procure a tallow-dip
from the Chandler, by the light of
which he may be able to Pierce the
darkness that envelops his under
standing.—

In looking over a woman's list of
good resolutions for the now year, we
fail to find the following:

Tlio ClmrKOH Against Illshnp Dubs, on Trial
nt Cleveland.
Bishop Randolph Dubs, of tho Evangel
ical association, was placed on trial at
Salem church, Cleveland, O., for "con
duct unbecoming a Christian." Fifteen
clergymen constitute the trial committee,
and Bishops Esher and Bowman, of Chi
cago, are'present. The charges against
Bishop Dubs are that he accused Bev.
Pfitzinger, of Buffalo, and E. B. Esher, a
son of the bishop, with having falsified a
telegram whioh .he sont several years ago
referring to church matters, and that on
two occasions be was familiar in his con
duet toward two women—nothing criminal
being chargod,-however.
Thj Evangelical association has many
churches in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and
Pennsylvania and the northwest. Dubs
has always been popular and friends de
clare envy to be back of the present tiial.
The investigation is being made behiud
locked doors, an Dubs' request for a cer
tified copy of tho record of eacli session
was refused. Ilis son was denied a
seat.' He entered a protest ugainst
tne admission of written testimony unless
he was given the privilege of the cross
examination of witnesses. That was im
possible,' (is the witness are not hero.
Bishop Dubs then withdrew, declaring the
investigation should proceed without his
presenoe, inasmuch as he had been de
prived of all rights. His friends sav the
charges are false and have no foundation
whatever.

free coinage, etc. Gen. Curtis, of San

ex-Post master-General James was selected
chairman. Many prominent New Yorkers
were on the platform. Gen. Warner, of
Ohio, and ex-Congressman Fitch, of Ne
vada, wero the principal speakers. At ono
portion of Fitch's Bpeech some one in the
audience asked how President Harrison
stood on the question. Fitfih, in reply,
stated that Mr. Harrison had disregarded
tho silver plank in the platform on which
he was elected. He might, however, in
time, give the people justice. It would bo
well for future presidents ot both parties
to turn their eyes weBt. While Now York
might continue to deal the cards, the
United Estates would take a prominent
part in the shuffle.

SOME NEW AND IUBU ARK ABLE STATE
SIEXTS ABOUT IT.
TU AVotil faosecration il is Said to fiavt

to-Entombed—Oilier News:
The Garfield monument at Cleveland,,,
O.i is completed and preparations are now
inaidiig for tbo dedication Whicii is io lake
pinco early in the spring. At that time thd
i-emailis ot President Garfield will be
placed in the permanent sopulchre benfeatli
the monument.
In view of the approaching transfer of
tbeBe remains tiUm Lake View cemetery It
is now possible to relate an astounding
story respecting the disposition which has
been made of the lato president's body for
the last four years. Whon Garfield's
remains were deposited in an elab
orate vault in Lake View oemetery
it wits announced that they wonld be kept
there nntil the time came to make a
permanent disposition of them. After the
funeral Ihb heavy casket was plaoed in the
sarcophagus within the vault, which could
be viewed from the path outBide through a
massive iron grating. The suspicion whioh
the lobbery of the grave of Mr. Stewart
had occasioned respecting the existence
of an organized band of grave robbers in
duced the government to take special meas
ures to prevent any such violation of this
tomb, by direction of secretary Lincoln
a special guard of United States troops
was stationed at the tomb with instruc
tions! never to leave it unprotected. For
fiVe tears this tomb Was constantly Under
the eyes of soldiers, nightand day.
About a year after Secretary Endicott
succeeded Lincoln as secretary of war, ho
decided that it was unnecessary longer to
maintain the guard there. He therefore
caused orders to be issued returning the
soldiers to thoi' regimental head
quarters.' This caused the personal
frionds of the Garfield family in
Cleveland serious apprehension, for
some intimation had been received from
deteotives tbat the possibility of despoil
ing the temporary vault had been suggested
to certain Chicago ghouls. The revelation
of an attempt to steal the body of Abraham
Liuooln in Springfield added to the anxiety
of these friends, and after considerable
consultation they decided they would
do themselves what tho govern
ment had declined longer to under
take. Four prominent citizens sotocted
nn obscure vault In a remote)portion of the
cemetery grounds and one night proceeded
there and themselves removed the casket
to its hiding place. The task was a severe
one and one of the[gentlemen[Btrained him
self so badly that he has never since fully
recovered The work of removal and
obliterating all traces of what they
had done, both at the old and new
vaults, occupied the whole night.
From that time until, this the remains
have lain in this remote nook of tho
cemetery, a tomb utterly neglected and
never glanced at by tho casual observer who
happens to pass by. On the other hand,
thousands of persons iu tho past four years
have visited the temporary resting place of
Gaiiield, and, as they supposed, paid silent
homage to the memory of the president
whose remains they believed to be reposing
within the sarcophagus.
DOM PEDRO'S I'ROl'EUTV.
The Republican Authorities* Disposing of It
—Braxlllan Afl'ulrs.
The following is the latest nev/s from
Itio Janiero: Lieut.-Col. Lassance, a for
mer member of tho imperial staff, who was
asked by the provisional government to as
sume charge of Dom Pedro's property,
having declined to ast, the minister of jus
tice appointed an administrator to do' so.
Jewelry and other valuables wore listed by
the ohief of police as follows: Household
plate, $600,000 jewels of the empress,
$1,500,000 jewels of the emperor, $'20(1,.
000 crown, $500,000 total, $2,800,000.
«They wero deposited in the nam
of Pedro de Secantara with the
treasurer of the republio. Tho
carriage and horses are valued at $150,000
furniture, $15,000 museum and library,
$200,000. Piviz notes editorially that a
syndicate has boen formed with the pur
pose of buying up Petropolis, the real es
tate belonging to Dom Pedro, at low fig
ures, to turn it into a casino. Mr. Ioniu,
Hussion minister to Brazil, who fled to
Peru during the revolution, has returned
to Bio Janiero. He will make no effort to
resume relations witn the Brazilian author
ities for the present, but exprosses the
opinion that as soon as a "legal" govern
ment be placed in power through a popular
election and a constitution adopted by the
new republic he will receive instructions
from the state department at St. Peters
burg to do so.

in civil suit brought by Henry Baxter, of

bt Victoria for fidlatiort df Sealing con
tract Jacob's IS tile owner of tiie stihcJon
bia Mollle Adams and Webster, in iauii
ary, 1889, Jacobs contracted to soil to
Baxter, in Seattle, at a stipulated price,
all the sealskins taken by his two vessels
during that year. The schooner Webster
was lost in a storm, bitt in April, 1889, the'
Mollie Adams delivered her season's clttbh
to Baxter. A verbal agreement was then
eutored into by Jacobs and Baxter to
the effect that the Mollie Adams wjis
to retain and take Beals in Bering
eoa and deliver the skins to Baxtef at the
price stipulated in the ctintratt. The
Adams went to Bering sea and returned
last November, but instead of delivering
the Bkins to Baxter Jacobs sold them in
Victoria. Baxter then brought suit against
Jacobs for damages by broach of contract.

the contract Was valid aud refused to

A CRISIS IN HAWAII.
Tho Natives Show Their Strength ami tile
Ouuook Is Gloomy for tho Ministry.
Tho outlook is gloomy for the Hawniian
ministry and. for all foreigners, as tho
native party under the leadership of Robert
E. Wilcox, who figured as leader of the
recent insurrection, scored a sweeping
victory at tho election on Feb. 5, electing
nineteenths of the representatives in
both houses. This viotory was secured
by stirring up the strong feeling of native
Hawaiians against foreigners. When the
natives vote solid, as they did
thiB
time,
there is no chance for foreigners. Tho
mooting of the legislature will probably bo
the signal for an attack on the ministry.
Wilcox was tried. I®6' October for
high treason, but was acquitted,
the government being afraid to
punish bim. He is the idol of the
natives, and swears he will have the scalps
of all those now in power. Kalakaua is
snspccted of being in sympathy with Wil
cox, as the natives are all loyal to the king,
and he would probably get greater power
wero the present cabinet ouBted. Tbe Na
tives are BO bitter against foreign domina
tion, which is supported by force of arms,
that if they fail in tho legislature they are
expocted to try another insurrection
PROM: OCEAN TO OCEAN.
Work on the Nlcaraugua Cunnl Reported to
lie Mnklng Satisfactory Progress.
Chief Engineer Menocal, of tho Nica
raugua Canal company, who has arrived in
Now York, says that work is progressing
systematically and satisfactorily and as
as rapidly as the nature of the
task and tbe engineering plans will
permit. The telopbone line 19
finished to Castillo Viejo, where it is to
connect with the Nicaraugnau govern-*
ment's wires, which, when completed, will
establish telegraphic communication- be
tween the east and west coasts. Laying
pipe for supplying the line of the works
with pure water, clearing tbe route of the
.caual for ten miles, up to tlie first lock,
and the construction of the breakwater'
at Greytown, including the quarry
ing and transportation of the, rock
and the gatheriog of the other material for
it, furnishes employment to about 1,000
men. The broakwater is to be 1,700 feet
long and about 250 feet of it is now com
pleted and progress is being made at the
rate of eight feet perday, with large quan
tities of piling and material on hand, so
that dredging tho channel will com
mence as soon as tho dredges, already or
dered, arrive at Greytown, and vessels
with heavy material for tho canal work will
soon after be able to enter the harbor.
Mr. Menocal says that the effects of the
breakwater- so far as constructed
aro precisely what he anticipated and
predicted they would be, in arresting
and drifting of the sand and consequent
filling up of the harbor's mouth. The
health of all the men is good.

Improvement on Bamle.
Anew fiber plant bas been discovered
on the Isle of .Trinidad which promises to
be an improvement on ramie. It was
found by an agriculturist named T. 3. St.
Hill/
Who bai called it "maholtine," bnt
whose scientific nomenclatue is Abutilon
periplocifolinm. Tho great thing with
this plant is that the ribbons at nearly all
times of the year aro easily detached from
the wooden portion by Bim pl.t stripping

When it is known how readily the stems
allow themselves to be deprived ot theur
coating of bark and fiber it will be seen
what advantage this simple fact gives the
new product over many of the fllwr pro
duoing plants. AU that is required is to

long,- split thd bark at tho larger end nod
Strip off the bark from ontl to end without

The Frcnch Woman Suffragist.
Slmt?. Olyrnpe Audouard, a famous'
Frenoh chawipion of woman's Tights, has.
just died at Sice. She was fifty-nine
years old, and had been married early in
life to a Marseilles notary, irorn whom she
separated after a few months, and spent
E$m6 time in {raveling about Europe. At
tertfafd ehe wrote a book and started a
review, which became so lively that tho
imperial government interlercd with a
prohibition of any political writing in it.
ijhe then came to America and was some
what conspicuous here, delivered lectiiresr
and wrote a book on Utah and the Mor
mon?. After her return to France she
adopted spiritualism as a hobby.
Shearing by Elcciricity.
Shoep aro JJOW sheared by electricity in
Australia, Frederick Wolseley, a brother
of Lord Wolseley, having inventing a ma
chine for the pnrposo. Tbe method of
using the shonrs is very simple, the oper
ator having merely to throw a friction
wheel into adjustment by means of a
handle, and then push the comb into the
wool, pressing it continuously forward
and keeping it aB closely as possible to the
body of tbe anTmal being operated upon.
From ono to ono hundred shears cau bo
operated at one time. By this mode the
shearing is done more mercifully than
when done by hand shears.
