A PUEZLING PAIK,
Atatral in Augusts the other day,
before Judge Whitehouse, the case being
a family quarrel between disgruntle
heirs, among the witnesses for the de
fense were twins. They were not ordi
nary twins. They had hair of the bri%ht
rest auburn, eycbrows the color of flax,
pink and white complexiens, and dresses
exactly alike, even to the least important
bow. Their names even were exactly
alike, with the single exception that an
“a”’ appeared in one of their names in
stead of an ‘0.”” When the first ap
peared on the stand the jury, judge, and
lawyers regarded her attentively; she
gave her testimony in a modest manner
and stepped down. Another name Wwas
called; it was that of her twin sister. As
her counterfeit presentment quietly took
the stand there was a hush in the court
room. Judge, jury, lawycrs and spce
tators sat transfixed and gazed first at the
witness in the witness in the box and
then atthe place where her sister had
taken her seat. They could hardly be
lieve their cyes; it seemed as if the
last witness had returned to the box
without being recalied. The lawyer con
ducting the cross-examination put the
usual questions; the name and the resi
dence were, to all appearances, the same
in the case of her double just on the
stand, and the voice precisely the same
in tone and inflection. The jury looked
at each other and seemed ready to match
coppers as to whether they were awake
or not. Then the lawyer asked the
witness if she had been on the stand be
fore during tlhie trial, and received a
quict answer in the negative. This
satisfied the court, although if her twin
gister had not sat in plain view at the
other end of the court room it is by no
means certain that she would not have
been indicted for perjury. — Auguita

A VERY RICH MAIDEN.
Newport Letter to Chicago Times.
The richest woman here, the richest
maiden, indeed, in America, it is
said, is Miss Catharine Wolfe. She
is not persecuted by fortune-hunters, be
cause her anti-connubial resolution is
well known and because she is not of an
age to provoke offers of marriage not
visibly mercenary. She is most amiable
and most estimable and has devoted her
life to doing good. A zealous Episco
palian, a member of Grace Church, she
follows to a great extent the counsel of
Rev. Henry C. Potter, in bestowing her
charities. It is she who is paying for
the new spire going up on that edifice.
But her generosity is not confined to any
particular cause. She gives {reely when
ever and whenever she finds a worthy
cause and gives without the slightest
parade and ostentation. Most of her
kind acts are not known beyond the
immediate circle of her friends. Her
fortune is ecstimated at $7,000,000,
to $8,000,000, and was inherited from her
father,she being the sole surviving child.
Most of it is in real estate in New York,
which has increased in value enormously
of l]ate. When she was young she had
the fear that heiresses naturally have—
that her hand would be sought on ac
count of lher wealth, and she announced
her resolution to remainsingle. She had
many offers, notwithstanding, and it is
believed none of them would have been
made had she been in ordinary circum
stances. It seems, tco, that she has seen
a good deal of conjugal unhappiness and
wculd have been, she says, deferred from
matrimony had she been differently
situated. Although she goes into society
she appears to be a devotee by nature.
If she had been a Roman Cathoiic she
wonld doubtless have entered a cloister
and given her money to the mother
Church, which has been the great beggar
of the centuries from its very foundation.
WOBMAN'S SINTH SENSE,
lere is a single instance of the work
ing of that subtle, fine sixth sense which
is apt to aflect women more than men,
and which is so mysterious in character
that we often incline to deny its existence
at all. A lady sat sewing quietly in her
sitting-room, and in aninner chamber
the nurse had just put the baby to sleep
and laid her in her Dbasinette. As the
nurse came out of the chamber Bhe said
10 her mistress;
“The little thing will sleep for three
hours, ma’am, I'll warrant.”” !
The nurse went down stairs, and for
about a minute the mother sewed on.
Suddenly a desire siezed her to go and
take the sleeping chjld from its crib.
“What nonsense!” she said to her
self. “Baby is sound asleep. Nurse
just put her down. I shall not go.”
Instantly, however, some power
stronger c¢ven than the jast, urged the
mether 1o oto her baby, and after a
moment she rose, half vexed with her—
self, and went to her chamber. The
baby was asleep in her little bed, safely
tucked n with soft while and pink
blankets. One small hand was thrown
above the little brown head. It was hall
open, the exquisite fingers slightly curved
and the palm as rosy as the depths of a
lovely shell.
“My baby!” whispered the mother,
adoring the little sleeper as mothers will.
“My own little baby!”
She bent over suddenly a third time,
impelled by that mysterious force which
was controlling her, and for no apparent
reason took the sleeping baby in her arms
and went swiftly into the other room. She
had scarcely crossed the tareshold when
a startling sound caused her to look back.
Through a stifling cloud of thick clay
dust she saw that the ceiling above the
baby’s cradle had fallen, burying the
heaps of rosy blankets, and lying heaviest
of all upon that spot where, but for
mystic wamning, lher litfle child would
even now be lyine.
HE HAD “RUN INTO SOMETHIN’." ‘
From the Chicago Herald.) |
New York Central locomotive stood |
close to the Main street crossing in Buflalo.
The fireman was busy cleaning some
blood and picces of meat off the cow
catcher. “Don’t shudder,” he said,
“nothin’ but beef—a fool cow got on the
track back here by Looneyville. Killed
a man once at the same crossing, It’san
unlucky spot, I guess. Do we have
many such accidents? Yes, afew. Did
you ever hear of old Jerry Drew; lives
up near Rochester? No? Well, we
had a scrimmage with him one day. Ile
gets drunk every time he goes to town,
and that day he was drunker than ever.
He allus seemed to get to the track’bout
time we got to the road,an’ I've seen him
whip up his horses and whoop and yell
and try to get there the same minute we
did many a time. Ife seemed to delight
init. Once he stopped right on the track,
and when we came up slow with brakes
on he dared usto come any closer, and
said he’d run over us. Had to whistle
and scare his horses in order to get him
off. The time'l started out to tell you
about, though, Jerry had had too much
and was sound asleep in his wagon. The
horses went on the track right in front of
us, and the whole institution was busted
all to pieces. 'We stopped as quick as we
could, an’ run back. Both horses were
killed and the wagon all cut up to kind
lin’ wood an’ serap iron. Over by the
fence was old Jerry. I saw he wasn’t
dead right away. The shock had woke
him up, an’ he wastryin’ to drink out of
the neck ofa bottle, the neck being all there
was left of it,
“ ‘What's the matter here ?’ [ shouted.
He looked up, opened his eyes a little,
an’ gazed around him,
*“ ‘I guess—lic,” he said, guess [ must
o’=hic--run into sumthin’."’
A WORD FOR WORKINGMEN,
In & letter to his brother, the editor of
the Lebanon Frez Press, ex-Governor
Cheney, of New Hampshire, reports a
conversation which he lately had with a
manufacturer in Scotland. The Scotch
man at first assumed as a suflicient reason
for lower wages in Great Britain that a
dollar would go further there in the pur
chase of the necessaries of life than in
this country. Forced from this position
by a comparison of actual prices, the
Scotch manufacturer exclaimed : “The
fact is, our workmen do not require so
much and are not accustomed to
living so well as yours do.”
‘“Now,” replied Governor Cheney,
‘‘your answer iscomplete and satisfactory.
This is just the case. Our workmen are
a part of our great Republic, so closely
interwoven with its interests that it is
hard to draw the dividing line between
them and the manufacturer. They fill
places of responsibility in our churches,
our schools, - our benevolent institutions,
our hospitals, all of our secret societies,
as well as all of our political organiza
tions. They are always represented in
our municipal government and in our
State Legislatures, and the employed are
as much respected as the employer—
tested by actual merit.”
HOW IT HAS WIGGLED.
The history of the political course of
flarper’s Weekly shows that recklessness
and malignity not infrequently control it.
Old John Brown was a victim of its
editorial and pictorial abuse. In
the days of Buchanan and Har
per’s Ferry the “‘journal of civilization”’
was an abject toady of the slave power.
Before that time it was a Know Nothing
organ, and one of its proprietors was the
Know Nothing candidate for Mayor of
New York city, and another was anti-
Mason candidate for Presidential elector
when the anti-Masonic party was in ex
istence. In 1861 it fossly caricatured
and libeled Abrabham Lincoln, represent
ing him as a drunken, leering, smutty,
beastly sort of human ape. So outraged
were the loyal people of New York that
a determined mob forced the proprietors
to hoist an American flag over their pub
lishing house.—Fxchange.
THE DEADLY TEAPOT.
From the Waterbury (Conn.) American,
“While good temperance people are
decrying liquor,”” said one of the leading
physicians of the city, ‘“‘they seldom stop
to think how much harm is being done
by the abuse of a beverage to which
many of them are devoted. I just came
from attending the cascof a five-yecar-old
bate who is ruined for life by its parents
indulging it in tea-drinking. The child
became veay nervous and dyspeptic and
they sent for me. I asked them how
much tea the child drank. ‘About two
cups at each meal and several between
meals,” was the reply. Yousee,”’ the
doctor continued, ‘‘they let the tea-pot
stand on the stove all day. Thus the
tannic acid is extracted, which serve to
turn the linings of the stomach into
leather, and brings on dyspepsia and
kindred diseases. Yes, you will find hun
dreds of women, young girls and aged
women, and occasionally a man, who
have completely ruined their nervous sys
tem by the excessive use of common tea.
It will be a Llessing to mankind when a
temperance crusade can spare wind
enough from its attack on alcohol to as
sail tea.’”’
PLATES, BIRDS AND POETRY.
The wife of Senator Harrison, of Indi
ana, has decorated eighteen china dinner
plates in a novel manner, which was
wholly her own idea. On each she has
painted a bird of a different species, and
on the border of the plate a verse in old
English text of poetry written by one
of the best authors about that particular
kind of bird. This not only has the
merit of originality, and so excites the
interest and admiration of those who see
the plates, but bhas the further advantage,
as every verse is one which has been lit
tle quoted, of suggesting topics of con
versation at a dinner party when the
plates are used, which is always an ines
timable boon on such occasions. Mrs.
Harrison says she was surprised to find
how much good poetry had been written
about birds which alluded to or described
so many Cifferent species. She says she
found verses enough to serve for another
dozen plates entirely different from those
she has finished.
AN ASTONISUING CURE.
M. Claretie, in his last ckronique in the
Paris Zemps, mentions a rather sensa
tional case of recovery from cholera dur
ing one of the earlier visits of the epi
demic, due to the skill of Dr. Lorain, a
well-known physician ot the time. The
patient had sunk into the last stage of
collapse, and the hospital pliysicians had
stopped the treatment as useless. Dr.
Lorain, happening to enter the ward, de
termined after ahasty examination of the
sufferer to try an experiment with the
object of restormg the circulation, which
had practically ceased. He first per
formed the operation he contemplated on
a rabbit, into whbose crural vein he in
jected a certain quantit® of warm water.
He then repeated it on the dying inan,
into whose circulatory system he pumped
400 grammes—nearly a pint—of the same
fluid. The heart began to beat at once,
though so faintly as to be hardly percep
tible. The operation was repeated with
still happier effects. The pulse could now
be felt at the wrist; the patient recovered
his sexsibility and his voice. In ten days
he left the hospital perfectly well. As M.
Claretie remarks, the case, which isa wel
authenticated one, illustrates the sound
ness of D, Koch’s advice never to despair
of a chelera patient, and to keep up the
treatment to the very last.
THE TALK OF THE DAY.
Spaxisia and Cuban dances have be
come popular alt many of the summer re

He is probably trying to minister to the
inner wants of the guests,

imposing.— Philadelphia Press. .
Tur Democratic organs are beginning
to breathe more easily now. They have
triumphantly proved the personal purity
of Governor Cleveland by calling the
Rev, Mr. Ball a liar, a buzzard and a
horse-thief.
A MAN got drunk the other day in Lon
don and fell down and broke his neck.
The wise jury that “sat’”” upon him hap
pened to find out that his grandfather had
accidentally broken his neck, and so ren
dered the devout verdict : “Died by the
hereditary visitation of God.”
SOMEHOW or other it seems to have
suddenly and simultaneously occurred to
all the brighter Democratic” papers that
Mr. Blaine is about the best-known pub
lic man there ever was in this country,
and that the people are not likely to
change their opinions of him on account
of anything they see in hostile partisan
papers.
A MAXN who has no club to gc to in Lon
don on Sunday, and cannot procure food
at his lodgings, will probably have to do
without eating anything, as the people
are too religious to countenance the
opening of restaurants on Sunday. But
he can get all the liquor he wants, ex

When I reached Appomattox Court

for some time. All there is of the apple
tree story is this: When I received a
note from Lee askiné to meet me at Ap
pomattox, where hé then was, I sent
him a note saying I would Le there as
soon as possible. There was an old ap
ple orchard on the hill-side, opposite
M’Clean’s house, where the advance of
Lee’s army had halted when the white
flag was exhibited. A farm road ran
diagonally up the hill, through the or
chard. In places where trees were close
to the wheel tracks, on the upper side of
the road, the roots had been cut off by
being continually run over. This left a
low bank between the road and
trees so cut. 'When the oflicer (General
O. E. Babcock) who bore my reply to
General Lee reached him he was seated
on one of these embankments, with his
feet in the road and his back against the
tree. He was then invited to pass through
our lines to a house to await my arrival.

PILING UP THE ARGUMENT.
Denver Tribune.
Dust destroyvs as much property every
year as any natural agency except fire.
In Denver this is especially true, as there
dust is of a peculiarly penetrating quality.
It can get into houses through crevices
that would bar out even those angels, a
hundred thousand of whom can stand on
a point of a pin. Dust is an expensive
luxury, which in these hard times we
cannot afford to indulge in.
It soils the windows.
It injures the furniture.
It ruins the books and the pictures,
It doubles the cost of keeping the home
tidy.
1t wears out clothing.
It dor.bles the wash bill.
It destroys shoe leather.
It increases the expense and trouble of
keeping the person tidy.
It damages all kinds of goods.
It spoils the groceries.
It is deleterious to dry goods.
It is hwurtful to cigargs and tobacco.
It plays the mischiet” with drugs.
It devastates jewelry and watches.
It is hard on hardware.
It is the bane of the furniture dealer.
It spoils the temper of the bank-teller.
It takes away theappetite, and so fleeces
the restaurant.
It represses all the wsthetic aspirations,
and so blights the life of the art dealer.
It drives all music from the sous, and
thus fosters treason’s strategies and hand
organs.
It confuses the doctor, mixes up the
lawyer and lays a terrible burden on the
piety of the minister.
It corrodes the temper of all.
It is bad, baleful, malign, dire, de
structive, detéstable, deadly. It is
lethiferous end ezotic.
Sound economy demands that before
the effects of the recent rains have disap
peared measures be taken for the sprink
ling of the streets.
THE SWEET POTATO CROP JIN A
BAD WAY.
The sweet potato crop, the most im
portant product of the Eastern Shore of
Maryland and Virginia, is said to have
been almost ruined by a disease similar
to the disease which afilicts Irish po
tatoes, and known as phytapthora in
festans. Hundreds of acres in North
ampton county, Virginia, have been
plowed under, to bereplanted in corn, so
as not to lose all the money expended in
fertilizers. Northampton county has al
ready lost $lOO,OOO this year, and the dis
ease is still spreading, causing great
alarm. Close inquiry indicated that slips
obtained from northern regions were
more prone to become diseased ;
some slips from South Carolina
have not up to this time shown any indi
cations of disease. Observant farmers
have iried to overcome the trouble by
growing their slips in new localities, away
from the old hotbeds, but without any
improvement, since these plants also died.
A WRETCHED DUSINESS,
New York Sun, Dem, il
Less than a month has passed since this
available nomination wasmade, and how
is it quoted now ? Has availability gone
up or down in that time? What has the
Democratic party gained by lowering its
standard of public merit, and by sacrific
ing its most splendid names to a pro
moted accident? It has gained, or hopes
it has, some small quantity of votes, the
votes of Republicans who hate itas badly
as the{' hate Mr. Blaine, and who have in
tended to vote for Mr. Cleveland as being
about the same thing as voting for a Re
publican. It has gained, also, the enmity
of great numbers of laboring men who
have hitherto been willing to support it.
It is safe to estimate that for every dissat
isfied Repubiican whom the Demi-Repub
licanism of the Democrati: candidate has
won over, it has turned two Democrats
away disgusted. This is the fruit of put
iing up acandidate whose course, however
sincere may have bcen the motive that
prompted it, has only secured Republican
vetes Dby alienating Democratic. And
now to make this brilliant triumph of
availability still more resplendent, the
Democratic candidate must go throughthe
campaign with the burden of an old
scandal weigking him down. It is a
wretched business. Surely, if mediocrity
was to be honored and cxalted by the
Democrats, there was mediocrity enough
to be found against which, in private life
at least, no shameful accusation would be
brought and in whose defense no painful
confession would have to be made, But
to public abilities of the highest order, to
Brivate lives without a blemish, the
emocrats preferred availibility. The re
sult has been that already there is doubt
where there should have been assured
confidence, and the fatal seeds of division
and disaster may be already springing up
in fields where victory was looked for.

NOT A CUSS WORD.
General Butler Mukes an Amusing Ex
planation.
General Butler gives the following
amusing explanation of the origin of
what is generally accepted as a profane
remark: 5 ok g
The editor of the Boston Herald does
not seem to know enough to be wicked
when he wants to be. Ie closes an ar
ticle upon your humble servant in the
Herala of Sunday as follows: “Can any
body believe that a man with his record
cares a tinker’s malediction for the prin
ciples of any party ?” Now he evidently
thinks that a ““tinker’s dam" is a cuss
word. Will you inform him that in the
olden time, when traveling tinkers went
about the country mending the holes in
the tin kettles and pans he frequently
found one that was ragged and rusty,
so that the soldering iron woufii
not take, and he was obliged to fill it
up with a mass of solder. To keep that
solder en masse over the hole while in
the melted state, he was accustomed to
take some crumbs of bread and moisten
them and make a little ridge around the
hole with the moistened erumbs, to hold
the selder in its place as he melted it in.
This was what was called a “tinker’s
dam,’”’ which he brushed away after he
nad finished, as it was utterly useless.
So that our Pilgrim fathers used the
word ‘‘not worth a tinker’s dam,’’ never
dreaming that they were profane. The
editor of The Herald evidently thinks he
has been swearing all his life, when he
hasp’t, and thot he must soften the word
down to “‘mal. liction.”” Yours traly,
‘ Bexsayixy F. BuTLER.
THE FARMER'S COLUMN,
TRAINING TOMATO VINES
¥rom the New York Observer.
Considerable difference of opinion ex
ists as to the proper method of caring_ fog
tomato vines. The following :suggestioub
from an agricultural paper are timely:
Mcst growers n§ree that keeping tomatoes
off the ground is a great advantage.
Stakes or treliises are now used to great
extent to train them so. A common way
is to train to single stakes of about four
feet in"height, tying the plants to stakes
as they grow. This is little or no
improvement over the old way of let
ting them lie on the ground. A much
better plan is to set the plants in rows
four feet apart, and the plants three in
the row. Before setting the plants dig
out a couple of spits of earth, and set in
three branches of trees—twiggy ones are
the best—in triangular form, with the
tops spreading outwards. Set the plant
in the center of this, and as it grows
keep the shoots inside of the stakes by
passing a string around them. There
is nc better way to get good, clean
fruit from tomatoes. As everything gen
erally has some disadvantage connected
with it, so this way of growing tomatoes
is not perfect. When the plants are al
lowed to run over the ground they keep
the soil cool and moist. It follows
that tying up to stakes produces the op
posite effect, and the plants suffer the
soonper from summer droughts. This
can be easily remedied by mulching
around the plants with something to break
the sun’srays. If nothing else is athand,
cornstalks answer admirably. 'Tomatoes
produce such a mass of foliage thai they
require much moisture, and it is surpris
ing how they tdrive when by mulching or
other means the ground is never allowed
to become too dry.
PROFIT ON CHICKENS.
He who adopts the poultry business as
his principal employment and depends
upon it for a livelihood must not forget
what his business is. If before entering
into it you sat down and carefully
counted the cost, as any wise person
should do, and decided that on a very
few acres of worn-out, worthless land
you could raise $1,500 worth of chickens
more easily than you could raise 500
pounds of hay and twenty bushels of
potatoes, don’t forget the conclusion you
have thus carefully arrived at. Don’t
imagine you area farmer, for you are
not. Don’t leave your chicks to shift for
themselves while you turn those few
spears of hay or hoe thoze few hills of
potatoes. Remember your business is to
raise chicks and fight hawks and crows,
and not to raise potatoes and fight potato
bugs. If you have time to take all
necessary care of your chicks and also
time to hoe potatoes, and if it is settled
that cliicks are more profitable than
potatoes, then the obvious conclusion is
that you have not enough chicks to
employ your time to the best advantage,
and you had better set more hens as soon
as possible.
A FARM NECESSITY
Lvery farmer should keep a can of
the following mixture: Kerosene, two
quarts; linseed oil, one gill; rosin, one
ounce. Melt the rosin in the linsced oil
and add to the kerosene. Coat alt steel
or iton tools, wherever brighr, with this
when they are to lie idle, if for only a few
days. It will not take half a minute or
half a teaspoonful of the mixture to coat a
plough when one has finished usiniit,
and 1t will prevent all rust and save half
a day’s time in cleaning it when it is
again needed. besides saving the team
many thousands of pounds extra pulling.
Coat the iron work of the mowers and
reapers with it when they are put away
for the winter. A little rustis only a
little thing, but it makes much difference
in the aggregate.
WEED EGSILAGE.
It is supposed, as was recently done
by a large French farmer in Algiers,
that all sorts of weeds may be cut and
advactageously put into silos in England.
During a very wet season in Algiers vari
ous rubbish overgrew the soil, such as
big thistles, charlock, yellow chrysan
themum and other beautiful flowers and
weeds. These were cut when green and
juicy and put in the silo with lucern and
other grass, and made about as excellent
fodder as Indian corn passed through the
stalk cutter and then siloed.” This hint
may be applicable here when a wet sea
son gives a large growth of weeds.
MOISTURE FOR YOUNG PLANTS.
Small or newly set garden plants or
vegetables, which need watering in dry
weather, may be more injured or bene
fitted if the operation is not properly per
formed. Merely wetting the surface of
the earth forms a hard crust as soon as it
becomes dry. Covering the surface an
inch and a half deep with fine broken
manure will prevent a crust, and the
carth will remain moist much longer.
Newly transported plants will do much
better with this mulching.
SHADE FOR FOWLS
All species of fowls are warmly clad,
and it should be borne in mind that this
very matter of clothing, while of great
value as a protection against cold, be
comes an eclement of danger when the
fowl is subjected to the heat of summer.
To guard against this it is necessary to
provide a good shale during the day.
Tur number of splendid old trees in
the duchy of Coburg is duec to the
forethought and liberaiity of the father of
the reigning Duke. The old ruler of the
duchy was fond of trees, and whenever
he saw a group or a single one that
ought to be spared as a “‘thing of beauty,”’
he took measures to make the same a
‘“joy forever,”” by purchasing the fee
simple outright from the owner. There
fore there are many grand old monarchs
of the the forest existing, either as monu
ments of his loving care or else enjoy
ing for their lifetime a pension from his
bounty.
It isreported from Bucharest that the
Conservative programme in Roumania
comprises a scheme for dethroning King
Charles and placing the duke of Eden
burg in the vacant and most undesirable
place. This story the correspondent of
the Pall Mall Gazette disbelieved at first,
but its truth has now been established
undeniably by overtures made by the
conspirators (who are Wworking in the
interests of Russia) to intimate friends of
his.
SoME of the Italian papers are crying
out for a return to the death penalty on
the score of economy. ‘‘Lifers”’ have,
it is urged, their lives actually prolonged
by the kind care the Government takes
of them. Such prisoners are not assailed
by the troubles which befall men ming
ling in the battle of life,and have no
other occupation than to eat repasts
which they know will never fail them.
They thus lead a regular life, protected
from the excesses which abridge human
existence, and it has been found that
prisoners for life live to an age far beyond
that of other prisoners.
