He Knew the Corpse. Here Is a little story that is told by one of the men In charge of the elec tric lighting on the train which car ried President and Mrs. Cleveland on their recent trip as a fact Early one morning the train stopped for water at a little way station in Ohio. At the depot was an elderly farmer who showed great curiosity to see the Presi dent "Can't I see Mr. Cleveland?" he asked. "No, he's asleep, and no one can see him," was the response. "I would like so much to see Mr. Cleve land," persisted the old man. Some thing in his tons struck his interlocutor and he asked: "Do you know Mr. Cleveland?" "No," responded the farmer, 'tut I was well aeqainted with a gentleman he hung la Buffalo some years ago." The story was afterwards told to the President who enjoyed It heartily. Sathvdlt American, .--(.- A WOMAN'S FREAKS. Is She a Kleptomaniac or Chronic frhopllfler. There has been much nowspapoi space devotod to tho freaks of Flon Trumbull during the past twentj months, says The Detroit Free Press. She has been subjoctod to many examin ations In the police court for shoplifting by the authorities of justice, and wai once convicted and served tlmo for thai crime. Sho has repeatedly been detect ed in the act of stealing goods from the counters of retail dry-goods establish ments in this and other cities. Mrs. Trumbull's habit has been to walk into a dry-goods establishment, ask to bo shown articles, and while, tho clerk was engaged in search of the goods she would conceal what ever took her fancy under her garments. Occas ionally she would bo so successful that tho clerk who waited upon hor would only suspect that sho had been sneak thelving. At other times the clerk would be morally certain that she had taken goods surreptitiously from tho ap pearance of her cloak when sho left the store, On ono or two occasions it trans pired that Mrs. Trumbull was detocled in tho mancr of tho man who attempted to leave a grocery store in a southern town with the tall of -a codfish protrud ing from under his coat On ono o! these occasions Mrs. Trumbull escaped through tho svmpathy of tho Jury, and on another sh'o was forced to undorgo imprisonment for her folly. But re cently sho has boon complained of to the police for this strange and unaccount able habit, and her trail has been camp ed upon by sovcral detectives. Posi tive evidence has been procured againsl hor which neither she nor hor attorneys could contradict with any.show of succ ess. Her case seemed to bo ono whict called for spocial attention, and conse quently a petition was filed In the pro bate court yesterday by Detoctivo Mann ing, setting up that Mrs. Trumbull is insano and asking for her admission to tho Pontiao Insane asylum. It is tho most charitable construction of Mrs. Trumbull's mania, and was suggested to tho probato court out of sympathy for her. Tho case come before Judge Diirfeo, and he resolved to order a liearlug in the case forthwith. Accordingly at 8 o'clock Mrs. Trumbull, a mildeyed nnd disconsolate-looking woman, shabbilj dressed, accompanied by her husband, as poorly dressed as herself, appeared in the probate court Tho last act of the unfortunate woman m.

And with this the conrt-room CARE OF THE TEETH. A Dsntlat Advises tha Use of Only Water with the Bruab. "Wlmt should a man use to cloan hii tenth?" was tho Question asked of a well-known dentist reoontly by Tin Boston Saturday Evening Oazette. Tin dentist replied at once: "Nothing but wRtnr. Thero are more good tootn ruined by so-callod dontifrlces than by all other causes In the world put to gether. The object of tho makers ol thoso dontlfrices is, of courso, to pro duco a preparation that will, with vory liltlo rubbing of tho brush, make the teeth look perfoctly clean and whlto. To accomplish this they put pumico stone, and sometimes strong alkalis, in their preparations. Pumloe-stone win unrmostionablv take all tho tarter oil the tooth, and will also, just as unques tionably, take all tho enamel with it. An nlknll will mako a vollow tooth look white In a fow seconds, but before a wnnk hns nassod it will havo eaten nwnv nonrlv all the ononiel and uttorly destroyed tho tooth. In walking the street you often soe a 'fakir.' by way oi Bilvnrtisinir his patent dcnPfrlcc, can a small boy from the crowd near by, and, opening the boy's mouth, rub the dentifrice on his dirty teeth, and in a minuto, almost, take oft" all the tartar and make the teotu look perfoctly pure n,l white. Now. a man like that fakir ought to be arrested, for he has for- evor destroyed that boy's teeth, ins nrnnm-ntion. COmDOSCd Ol a pOWeriUl alkali, is eating away the onamol of tho boy's tooth, and in a lew monins t)i nnor vouncstcr will not havo a sound tooth in his head. Tho dentifrices composed chiefly of pumlco-stono are nnt. hi lmrl ns those containing an alkali, because they will not dostroy the teeth no onicklv: but if used habitually tncy will ns certainly destroy them in mo 1 tr " end. I should advise a man by all means to use no dentifrice of any description, unless it bo prepared chalk. If this is used not oftenor than once a week it will not injure tho teeth, and may help to cleanso thorn, but it shouiu on no Account be used every day. Orris root does the toeth no harm, and gives a a 11 pleasant odor to tho breath; anu u an our dfitifiices wero composed simply of orris root and prepared chalk they i a. would be liarmless enougn, ii ov hnnnHeluL Mv own plan is to use a moderately hard brush and plenty of cold water, and nothing eiso, anu my tooth are in excollcnt condition. 11 peo ple would only pick their teeth care fully after each meal, making sure that not the si ehtest particle ol iooa re mained near tho gums or between the teeth, aud would also, boioro retiring at. nltrht. run a niece of soft thread through their tooth, they would not have any necessity for a aoniurice. ui courso sweots and candies are bad for the tooth; so is smoking, or taking cither very cold or hot drinks; but, bad as all theso undoubtedly aro. I ronlly think that the worst enemy tho tooth has Is the so-called? dentifrice. Take the advice of a dentist, and never uso anything for your tooth but a brush and good cold water." Mao. Man Is a mammal, though not half as much as he ought to be. Man is largoly "physio"al, and would be morn so if doctors had their say. Man is made after a formula which calls for jiinoty parts water and the re mainder of almost anything else, Man, like a gun, sometimes goos oil half cocked, but it is generally becauso be can't get trusted for any more "med icine." One of the chief industries of man is corn raising, some on his own foot, some from the feet of othors and some In a liquid form at ten cents a drink. The ninety per cent of water con tained in the primitive mnn is oftou adulterated with the juice of bugs to such an unmerciful extent that he be comes a nomadlo cosspool of loathe somenoss. Man, in his best estate, is but a bundle of incongruities, a heterogenous commingling of good and evil, joys and rheumatism, sorrows and phosphorus, with bunions on his toes, tartar on his teoth and dandrnil on bis coat collar.

Man begins his earthly career with out a tooth in his bead. This is wise, for his occupation during the first year of his existence needs no such appurt enances.
