It was exactly 10 00 when the Cepheus
arrived at the Hcotland Lightship, and
the appearance of the bay at that time
was sufficient to enthuse the heart of the
most sluggish yachtsman. Defender,
with main sail, Jib, club topsail and stay

cjnosure of all rns and the admiration
of ever) body A hundred glasses were
levelled at her and tho one exclamation
was heard on every side:
"Oh, what beautiful sails."
llefore the exclamations of admiration
died away a dozen sailors ran out on the
lwwsprlt renily to hoist the balloon Jib
at u moment's notice. She seemed to
move through the water as easily as a
swan, cutting the water as If with a
knife.
Vigilant also looked at her best, and
those who remembered the hitter's rn-.

change In her. Tho referee's boat,

"Ttio bravest act 1 saw during my
residence In Icartllle," said Mr. Pey
ton It. Hull, who spent upward of ten
years In tho carbomttn camp, "was on
one occasion when a mob tried to
lynch a man and the Hherlft protected
him.
"A lawyer named Enrly was trj Ing
a rase beforo Justice of the l'eaco Dn
Long. A dispute arose hetween him and
the counsel on tin optrustte side, and
tho latter nulled his gun and uttempted
to shoot Early. llefore ho could pull
the trigger- or. nt least, before he
could hit Early the lutter. whose
marksmanship was somowhat better,
fired across the table and killed his
opponent The shouting was altogether
Justifiable, but pi-oplc were sick of
such tragedies, and In less time than It
takes to tell It a mob formed nnd an
attempt was made to lynch tho lawjer.
Among the crowd were several poltco
men, who, lnsteud of trying to quiet the
outbreak, weie as loud as the rest In
shouting for Uarlj's blood, and the
situation was critical to a line point.
"Early had not yet left the court-room,
and nothing on earth apparently stood
between htm and a horrible doAth, when
a man npix-arod on the scene whose
nerve was suitlclent to paralyze the
clamorous mob and save the lawyer's
life. The court-room was but a short
distance from the county Jail, and the
outbreak had lieen witnessed almust
from Its starting by the Sheriff. This
olllt'lal was a big (lermaii named Peter
Htcker, who, before ho was elected
hherlff, ran a saddltry shop on Chestnut
sit eel. Itecker, as soon as he saw the
mob forming, run oer to see what the
trouble wax, and darted upstairs Into
the court-room, where he found Early
and the deud man, and waa briefly In
formed what had trnnsplred and the
danger to which Eaily was exposed.
" 'Do as I tell you,' said Becker to
Ilurly. 'imd I'll take you to Jail and no
mother's son shall touch you.'
"Tho mob was Just about to rush up
stairs when the saw Early nnd the
Sheriff coming 'j meet them Early wa

while at the same time he was protect

reached the foot of the stairs Decker
told the mob to fall bnrk
" Tm going to take this mm to Jail!"
he cried out above the confusion, 'lie Is
my prisoner, and Is going to be pro
tected If It takes my life. You can't
kill him without killing me. and If any
man las a hand on him while he is In
my custody I'll drop htm In his tracks I
Now clear the wayl'
"He pushed Early before him, and
passed Into the crowd, the Sheriff walk

the two moving like one man Tlie

gun-barrels frowning them right In the

Stuttering la a' widely spread com

It In ancient history, and at the present
day It Is prevalent In all parts ot the
world. It Is met with among the negro
races of Africa and Is common among
the Mongolian Inhabitants of China,
where It has been given the suggestive
namo of "kchl-ko." For some unex
plained reason It Is twice as frequent
among mates as females. Although
stuttering Is often met with In Indi
viduals whose mental capacity Is far
above the averuge, yet there Is reason
to believe that the proportion of suffer
ers Is higher among epileptics and
nmong thoie of defective mental devel
opment than among ordinary people,
nnd that the prognosis In these subjects
Is less hopeful. The affection Is rarely
congenital. It usually comes on either

such as the first going to school, period
of second detention, and so forth. Caijes
are not infrequently met with In which
a child 1ms been a stutterer and re
covered relapses on going to a boarding

hnd almost completely mastered the de

degree on going to live abroad, where
he had to converse In an unfamiliar

a slight natural tendency to spontane

expedited and years of discomfort avoid

On listening to the conversation of a
stutterer you at once observe that ,he

one of his stumbling blocks he makes
evident attempt to pronounce It, but In
the majority of cases remains silent.
Occasionally he manages to pronounce
the consonant, and then keeps on re
peating It, talking, for example, of a
b-b-b-bath b-b-bun. This form, although
so frequently met with In fiction nd In

the silent form. When once the difficult

A Vr.rtMOT SOLDIER'S MEDAL.
Fonnd In the Field Where McClel.
Innd's Army Camped In 1862.
(From the Washington Post,)
A gold medal was found on the farm
of I)r Oustavus Brown. Dlckerson
Station, Mil., yesterday, which would
seem to have been lost while McClel
land's army was encamped at that
place In 1802. Some laborers engaged
in digging postholes unearthed a bright
object about eighteen Inches below tho
surface, und on examination It was
seen to be u medal about the slxe of a
ten-dollur gold piece. On one side Is a
vignette of Gen. McClelland, encircled
by tho letters of his name. On the re
verre side, standing out plain and dis
tinct, appoars the name of "Franklin
O. Pullslpher, Co. I, Twelfth Vermont
Volunteers."
Cannon halls and other relies of a
hnttlelleld are frequently found on the
Brown farm and as there was fighting
at Dickinson Station during the war.
It Is not Impossible that the medal waa
lost In battle by the man who had won
It by some brave exploit In another en
gagement, and that he himself fell on
the spot where the mark of honor has
lain for more than thirty years, but the
finders are inclined to think that It was
lost while the army was In camp, local
" THE EVENINQ WORLD'S" BALLOON AND THE RADIUS OF POSSIBLE COURSES. I
tradition having It that the place where
the medal was found was within the
limits of the camp, and that perhaps
Franklin G, Pullslpher still lives. The
1 medal Is In the possession of Mr. Jaml
1 son, the superintendent of the farm.

Culling Servants with a Pole.
IFrom Ihs Montreal Star )
A quaint practice exists at the Bishop
of London's palace at Fulham, and this
consists In what appears to be a time
honored custom of waking up the epis
copal domestics by means of a Ions;
pole. At Fulham the Palace lodgs
' keeper has a regular morning duly ko
I perform In arousing certain of th ser
I vants at successive hours, beginning at
i 5 30. The polo he uses Is not employed,
however, like the old church "rousing
staves," which came In handy In
churches In the case of Inattentive or
dozing members of the congregation to
bring them to a proper sensa of their
position. The venerable map la pro
vided with a slender rod some fifteen
feet In length, and with this he raps
on the antique casements of the ser
vants' bedrooms In the quadranglo
within the massive wooden gates of the
large western archway, and he contin

a more or less grateful answer.
Eskimo Superstition Is Ruinous.
For many year furriers have noticed
that all the skins of polar bears which
they have received have .been mutilated
by the loss of thv nose. A Parlsan fur
rier has discovered that this Is a re
mit of a superstitious belief prevalent
among the Eskimo, that whenever a
polar bear Is killed his nose must be
cut off and thrown upin the lot, or bad
luck will follow lbs bupttr.
