In a fresh breeze the respect ivr speeds were seven and s'"i knots; ami in a strong wind they were eip-lit ami ten knots mt hour.

On the broad, brown salt meadows that skirt the Ilousatonio river, jus: above its mouth, is a vujst colony of marsh wrens, relates the St. l'au' Dis patch. In the acres of tailzied tide.- and cat-tails the nests, which are as larre as one's head, are so compactly const r acted and so thoroughly t hatched as to le entirely weat her-t ipht. As a rule the thrifty little cluitteriii-; wrens prefer not to occupy u last year'?: nest, R) there are every season hun dreds of empty ones. '1 hey ure not al lowed to remain vacant lout?, for there are too many creatures seeking1 just such simi- quarters. One Set "mieii of field or meadow mice tale xissessiot' of a great many of them. 15ig spider, too, love to nest in the abandoned basket-like alxxles and live for many sea sons in them. The most, desirable ten ants of all are the big black unci v hit--hornets, lty far the greater iiumlier of the old nests are inhabited by these fiery fellows, and. h1i1 to rehite, they are the liest of friends with the land lords. As if by agreement with the wrens, they keep a perx-ttiul guard over the new nests, as well as t hose w here t hey live. I.-t a dog. an unconscious rail or s tiijic-shootcr, a bird-egging boy or auy creature whatever approach the i.est.- without warning, a cohort of winged warriors will fall on the intruder, auu (light is the only safe course. The wrens seem full conscious, of the value of such sentinels, for they take care to build their nests always very near to the old. The birds are themselves entirely defenseless, -ind, their nests lx'ing easily located on account of size and the noi.se made by the wrens, they have lcen in some loca'ities entirely wiped out by egg collectors. The boys have learned to give this colony a wide berth. THE SULTAN'S SUNDAY OUT. Ilamia It's ClMllaot Show When Abdul liie to l'rayera.

PHRASES THAT STICK TO US. t'nriou Fluure of tsp-eei-h That HaTO Be come IncorMrtcl in Our I -a.il -.I outre. The ueer phrase "My friend and pitcher" was still sometimes heard in Maryland and Virginia also, I am tolk in Pennsylvania, until within re-t-iit vears, but would seem now 'olie obsolete hercalHiuts. Is it still in use elsewhere? "Pitcher" had the mean ing of churn, crony or familiar acipiain tanee preferably, Krluijs. said of, or to. one of the opiwsite sex. The say ing "Little pitchershaveIongears,"and the briefer Shakespearean "Pitchers have cars" furnish possibly some anal ogy. ilere in Maryland a long lease of life, or at all events of memory, was secured for the phrase by its use in the name of a patent of land in Italtimore county granted in IT'.i'.l.the full name of which, "My Sweet (Jirl, My Friend and Pitch er," has met the amused glance of many a conveyancer searching the indices of our land records. The same day when this patent was issued out of the land ollicc of Maryland the pat entee received patents for five other tracts, anil the cheerful spirit of an ex lectant or recent bridegroom is per haps reflected in the names he chose for them, for three of the others are: "Here is Life Without Care and Love Without Fear." "With Little Am I Con tent." and "II ug Me Snug." One re grets to learn that within the year our piitciitee sold all six of the parcels (nearly roo acres) for "200 current money', $5.1'5.r5'l. For some years in the earlier part of this century the indices of the land records of P.altiniore county give not only the names of granter ancl grantee, but the names of the tracts conveyed, smd very vt liimsicsil these often are. Pesidcs many" such names as "Meg's IiccomiH-iise," or "John's Iast Chance," or "IJc-ientance." or "Folly," we come across such curious titles as the fol lowing: "Pad Koads sit Midnight." "Come by Chance," "Cuckold Maker's Palace." "Firgal and Ossin." "Hannah (hobnob) at a Venture." "Harry's De light in Army Ciarden." "Poor Jamaica. Mau's Plague." "Silent Cyphers of Af rica." "Seek Xo Further, for Pctter Can't lie Found" and "(Jen. Rocham bcau. the Friend of Washington, and. Therefore, the Friend of Universal Lilierty." I returning to the phrase "My friend and pitcher." it is interesting to note that although the word "pitcher" in the sense in which it is here used is not to lie found so far as I know in any dictionary, the expression was certain ly not unknown in Kngland some .15 years ago. for it is introduced in one of Uarhnm's Ir.goldsby lxgends, 'The House Warming," in the following characteristic passsige: Room for my lord, prom! Leicester's earl. Fit-tires awhile from courtly cares. Who took his wife, poor hapless girl. And pitched her neck and heels down stairs. Provine. in hopes to wed a richer. If not her "friend," at least her 'pitcher." Baltimore News. The Nomlirr of Incineration. Ia (irowlnf Steadily front Year to Year. The advocates in this country of cre mating dead bodies will be somewhat eueoursiged by the reports that come from Paris of the number of incinera tions that took phiee there during the first four months of 1S93, says the New York World. The number of incinera tions that occur, either in accordance with a previous request of the person whose body is dis-iosed of or at the instance of the representatives, in creases every year with great regu larity, though not rapidly. According to the stiitistics published by the pre fect of )olice, the numlier of crema tions that took place at the Pere la Chaise cemetery from August, lftS'j, to the end of April, ISjj, were as follows: LSVJ, 4j; :syo, 121; :StM, 134; ls2, lS'll!, ISO; 1SJ4,21j, and 1S95 (four months), 75. The furnace would consequently often be idle were it not for the remains from the hospitals, which amount to from 2.IMKI to 2.5IMI Ixxlies ier annum. The apparatus employed is that of MM. Toisoul and Fradet and works by means of gas with a recujierator. In cinerations arc accomplished in an hour or, at most, an hour and a quarter, and the cost of the combustible never ex mils three francs per operation. Another apparatus, invented by M. Fichet. has recently been inaugurated. The difference lietween the two inven tions lies chiefly in the application of oxide of carlion. In the contrivance devised by M. Fichet the liody is con sumed by hot air alone and does rot come into contact with gases. Accord ing to this method, incineration taes place a little more rapidly than in the Toisoul furnace, but the exiensc is greater by nearly a quarter as much. WEBSTER GAVE HIM THE APPLE. Oov. Doty Planted the S-1 and from Them Ursw a II Intorle Tree. There is an old apple tree back of the old Doty homestesul on Doty is land, in NcclhIi, which ha, a hKtory, vays the Milwaukee Sitmel. It is a t ;ce. w hich p rew from apph seeds plant ed by ex-(ov. .laitn .i Duane Doty. Wncn Mr. Doty was lirst apito uted territorial judge of Wisconsin by President Fil! inoie, and was alioiit to lea.e Washing ton, the great Daniel Webster shooK hands with him and bade him good by, at the same time handing hini a large red apple. Webster then split the tipple in ino and he took one-half and Ihty the other. The seeds from F'Oiy's half were brought to this place and planted, and all there is left now is an old, withered tree, almost ready to fall. The IVity homestead across the river still remains, and is in a good state of preservation. It is an .old log house, ami Wfore the new Polierts summer re sort was built it was used as a sum mer hotel. An old registry which was used in this hostelry is still preserved by Mrs. Kolierts, and on its title jKitre are the autographs of some of the iiotd men of the count ly who used to come here to catch fish iu ljike Winnc bsigo. Among them were the nanus of ien. Philip H. Sheridan, Cen. Anson Stager, (Jen. W. T. Sherman. Walter Q. . re .sham. William Pitt Kellogg. (Jeorge Jay (Jould. llmmons Iilaine, John It. Foraker, Perry If. Smith, and a score of others not quite so prominent. RED TABBY CATS IN LONDON. Entertainingly Oem-rlbed by a Milwaukee Lady Who Saw Them. A Milwaukee lady who has recently returned from sibroad says that one ot the most interestiug exhibits which she saw in Europe was the National Cat show of Kngland, which was held at the Crystal jialace, I-oiidon, in which aliout 7u0 cats were showu, says the Milwaukee Sentinel. "The tlecldt d fea ture of the exhibition," she said, "was the numlier of suiierb red tabbis, to gether with a fine assortment of pure blacks, smoke-eolored cats smd cats with that iieculiar toue of glossy coat known as cat blue. The efforts of the English car breeders this last year have lieen blue and black cats. In the opin ion of many exjierts a black cat w it hout auy markings whatever of white is the most perfect variety thsit is known, and it is proof of the appreciation of this that certain dishonest ieople pluck the white hairs out of a cat one by tine. It has I een noticed that the clsisses that are open to workingmen in this national exhibition are particularly strong in fine black cats. Plue-cyed, white-coated cats are getting to lie highly valued in England now, and one of these bore off the other d:ty a sub stantial money prize that was offered by Louis Wain, the grestt cat artist. Another prize-winner of the show was a brown tabby torn. Champion Xeuo phon, w hich its owner values at $5,000." THE WORLD OF TRADE. Chicago is the center of the windmill industry of the country real wind mills. "Carosine, eight cents ier gallon" is a sign on a West side store in Chicago where some mysterious commodity is for ssile. Celluloid is lieing used for eyelets iu shoes instead of Jsiauned brass.

The builders of depots and other large blocks for the convenience of the pul lic arc having more regard for harmony in ilceoratiou than they used to have, since the jxople have lieeome educated up to it by the world's fair? A big glass joblier says that whiting is rubbed over the plate glass windows of buildings under construction to pre vent workmen from running a scant ling through the sheet of trsinsparent glass. When it is opaque he can see it and avoid it. The whiting is left on only so long as necessary for protec t ion, as it injures the polish. Sometimes soap is used to render the glass opaque. Mast Not Criticise the Fmperor. Not long ago a Leipsic editor w as sen tenced to five months imprisonrtent for criticising one of Emperor Wit barn's siieeches. The confiscation of newspapers commenting unfavorably o.i the sayings aud doings of the young potentate, or of his obedient servants. occurs rather often, too. MISCELLANEOUS In both Egyptand Assyria porcelain rings were iu common use. They were often painted with great delicacy, the painting being burned into the en amel. When Alaric besieged Home, A. D. 408, and was on the jioiiitof taking the city, he demanded as its ransom from pillage an immense quantity of gold, silver and jewels, and, among other things, 3.0OO pounds of pepper. Perhaps the most strikingevidence of thrift since that referred to by Ham let is furnished by a Maine tow n, where apple trees are to be planted in a grave yard and the proceeds from the sale of the fruit are to be devoted to the re pairing of the fences and the cutting of weeds. As far as recorded, the loss of life by shipwreck in 1S95 was 4,250; by rsiil way siccidents, 3,f32, aud by otherca.su alities over 24,000. Add to these dis mal figures the 5,759 reiorted murders in tho Cnited States alone, and we have a total of 37,641 violent deatlis, or an average of over 100 for every day in the 3'ear. The. fox's reputation for smartness wits well sustained by :i meiulier of the tribe near Falmouh, Me., the other day. A couple of hounds and a hunter were sifter it, and the fox led the hounds to a frozen pond, and out on ice so thiu that it just supported the fox. which es caped, while the hounds went through and were drowned. Passniore Edwards, editor of the London Echo, a pajier which the Sjiec tator describes as "the njost honest a nd most faddy in the world," gives away thousands of pounds every month to philanthropic undertakings of vari ous kinds. These he is said to select with great judgment, but he always takes care to exploit his good deeds at great length in his own paper, and per sistently asks other journalists to do the same in their own publications. A $150 lawsuit over a $1.25 pig ha just lieen ended in Michigantown. Ind.. and the town treasury is out the former amount. A month ago the city mar shal impounded a pig lielonging to a farmer named Hillis. The farmer re fused to Jiay the$1.50 Kiund chargeand replevined the pig. The town sui r. him. and after three trials the circuit court gave a verdict for Hillis, with $1.01 damages. More than half the peo ple in town were summoned fs wit nesses, and the total amount of money lost over the pig runs to a pretty higli figure. Edison believes that he can solve the problem of air shiiis either by using balloons or aeroplanes; but, to use his (n words: "I would construct actual shijis of the air yachts, schooners and hrigantines which would tack and jibe, and sail In-fore the wind. My idea is that the lifting jiower for these air ships should lie gas stored in the sails. In other words, you apply the tialloon principle in such away that the gsis liair. instead of lieing an impediment, as it at present, would lie the actual means of propuUUon. I would construct gas bags shajied like the saHsof a yacht." FASHIONS IN RINGS. In Nero's time there was a fashion prevalent of wearing large rings, the setting of which was carved with the bust of the special divinity who was the wearer's patron. Paradise rings were greatly worn in Italy three centuries aco. They were very wide and bore on the circumfer ence representations of Adam and Eve in the (Jarden of Eden. When the tomb of the great. Em peror Frederick, w ho died in 1250, was ojiened in 17S0, his coronation ring, set with a lieautiful emerald, was still found upon his finger. The ring of Edward the Confes.-or is preserved among the royal regalia of (Jreat Eritain. For several centuries it was used in the coronation cere monies of the Emrlish kings. In the Etruscan tombs of northern Italy gold rings have lieen found made in the shape of a cord, sv large knot of intricate fiattern forming the princi pal part of the ornament. Mourning rings were greatly used in Europe during the 17th century. After the execution of Charles I. his sym pathizers in England wore mourning rings in token of their grief. The scarabaeus, or sacred beetle of the Egyptians, was a favorite. subject for a setting in the early Egyptian rings. It was carved in stone, the work often being exquisitely done. INGENIOUS BIRD. Queer Performance of Feat hered Resident of Somali land. The honey bird, of which we saw sev eral driug our travels in Somali Land, is well worthy of mention as a natural curiosity, says a writer in the Nine teenth Century. It is a little gray common-looking bin! about the size of a thrush. It first forces itself upon the notice of the traveler by flying across bus path tittering a shrill, unlovcly cry. It will then sit on a neighbor ing tree, still calling and waiting for him to follow. Hy short, rapid Sights the bird will lead its guest on and on. till after awhile the traveler notices that the bird has stopped its onward course and is hanging about among a certain half-dozen trees. These I ei rig visited one after another, and careful ly examined, the search will be re warded by finding a nest of bees in one of them. The proliability is that there will be honey in it. I have never known the bird mistaken. It is a mat ter of honor with the natives to set aside a pood ortioti of honey for the bird. . Although this action of the honey bird is an established fact of natural hTstory, it is none the less un accountable, and it would be interesting- to know- whether he ever tries to entice qtiadruiieds also to assist him in obtaining his much-loved honey. Australia Meat Supply. The flocks and herds of Australia are numbered by many millions, and dur ing the last 15 years the carcasses of some 21.000,000 of sheep alone have found their way into this country from Australia and New Zealand. This does not include over 1,000,000 hundred weight of beef imported from the same sources within the last seven years. For the commencement of this trade was in 1SS0, when the total shipments amounted to 400 carcasses. iEXAS RANGERS. They Gtwe Short shift to the Wicked People. There are at preseut about 200 ifagers in Texas. They are separated intocom anies aud are kept on the borders for the most part, ssiys the St. Ixmis iloW Democrat. They live in the ojcii air the year round. Nearly every night in the year, rain or shine, they have on ly the sky for a roof and the bare ground for a bed. Their pillows are thcie sad dles. They are made up of the tlowcrof. Texas mauhood. A w ild, yelling, curs ing cowlioy is looked u'hui with con tempt by them. They depend ttxin their six-shooters and cat bines, their coolness and marksmanship, the know n courage of their comrades. The gov ernor of Texsis is the chief oflicer of the rangers. What he says is law t. them. The sheriff, the iiolicc. the militia, must not stand in their way if the rangers have orders from the jrov trnor. The rangers hold individ usilly ns much iiower as any sheriff in Texas. They hold more. They are not lioundcd by county lines. Whenever a sheriff is unable to coje with lawlessness he calls on the gov ernor and the rangers sire sent to take charge. The section which the rangers police is larger in area than all of New England, and it is of such a character thsit were it not for their work it would lie given over to lawlessness and dis order. They are paid $4U a month and their rations and arms and ammunition are furnished by the state. They pro vide their own horses, the state jiayiiiir for them if they are killed. They will take the ssiddle at a moment's notice to go on a scout of a month's duration. They have no uniform. They have no military discipline, as discipline is jrcn eraily understood, but they oliey their oflicers and will go with them to cer tain death without a murmur. QUAIL WERE DRUNK. Experience of a California Pot Hunter la a Vineyard. "I was out huntii'g quail in a big vineyard near Sjuitij. liosa a few days ago," remarks! Superior J udge Dough erty, of Sonoma county, according to the San Francisco Post, "aud ! got the finest bag of birds I ever shot in i.iy life. When I first went into the vi.ie yard 1 thought I was shoot iug at tame quail, for they wouldn't fly until I came near stepping on them, and th-'ii they would wobble off throiiirh the siir in the most erratic way. Tie',- would only fly a short distance uu-il they would drop into a gracvine as if tleh wintrs hud given out. "My dog kept bringing me live quail which 1 thought I hail wounded, but finally, when 1 had thre do.eu birds and had fired only aliout si dozen shols, I knew there was something wrong somewhere. "Finally I came uj-on quail lyinir on its back and kickiutr its feet iu the air in the most ecu!iar way. I picked it up and found it uninjured, so far sis I could see. Then I set it on its lejis aud it went staggering and floundeni.g over the clods a few feet further till it fell on its back, again and lay kit-king helplessly. "For the Irst time it occurred to me that the quail was drunk. They hail lieeu feeding ou the frost-bitten graies that had fermented on the vines, s.ml were enjoying the wildest, kind of a jsig. Some could not move, while the soberest couldn't fly fast enough to get out of the way of a clod. RARE DOLLARS OF 1804, The Die Was Made I'.nt None w Coined Till the Year 1S5B. I was talking to a w ell-know n numis matic the other tlay about the dollar of 104. for got h1 sjiecimens of w hich such fabulous prices are jiaid by collectors, and he gave me some interesting infor mation, says a Washington corrcsion dent of the New York Commercial Ad vertiser. The reason the dol hi rs of 1-n-l are so scarce is that none were coined that year, there licingan excess of coins of that denomination in circtilat ion. In 1U3, as is silways done, ihe dies were made for the succeeding year, but mine were, coined until 15(. when Director Pollock of the mint found the old die of 1S04 at Philadelphia, ami in order to complete his own collection offered to exchange with numismatics. How many were struck off is not known, but one of these ln-longing to cx Dlrector Lindemsui was sold at auction in New York for $ ITU. I" pon the early dollars coined around the rim of the coin was cut the worths: "I'nit. one hundred cents." This is termed the "collar" by numismsitics. and there is iio collar upon these restrikes. I!c!:ce. t is useless to look among the old dol lsirs that were in circulation for one liearing the date of ls(4. A HISTORY LESSON. The New Testament in its revised form appeared in IsSl, and the OKI Tes tament came out in Is5. Wall street, in New York, was so named because about 1C50 a stockade was built there as protection from ihe natives. The American Colonization society did not originate in the slave states, as has been recently stated. The idea was first conceived in 1773 by Hcv. Sam uel Hopkins anil Kev. Ezra Stiles of Rhode Island. Hut the actual founder of the society was Kev. IUlert Finlcy, of New Jersey. One of the historical old houses of Philadelphia has just been given to the American Catholic Historical society.

Common Caae. TheScotchman'sdisiiosition to regard his own judgment, as the liest thsit ran be found is well illustrated in a story once told of the moderator of a Scotch presbytery. This man's opinion dif fered widely on a certain question re lating to church discipline from that of the associates with whom he was ostensibly consulting. At last he said that he would lay the matter 1 wfore the Ixird in prayer and then wait for His guidance. "O Lord," said the mod erator, fervently and with perfect sin cerity of purjiose, "O Ixml, grant that we may lie right in this matter, for Thou knowest we are very decided." INTERESTING MISCELLANY.

The legs and tentacles of the com mon barnacle form an effective net. by which all small animals and insects suf ficiently near are entangled. The principle of the hinge is seen in almost every joint in the animal king dom. No animal is without a hinge joint somewhere or other in its anat oiiiy. The first cloth maker was the weaver bird, which, from threads and vegeta ble filaments, manufactures a fa uric quite water-proof and of very dense strut t ure. Several secies of sea anemone can form their jelly-like liodies into Ixtats and float on the surface of the water, pro;-eIliiig themselves with their an tennsie.

Sir John Herschel proved that ar icicle 45 miles in diameter and SOtiax miles long would melt in one minute should it fall into the sun. The skin t urns blue w hen exposed to cold liecause, by a low temperature, the circulation is impeded at the sur face, the arterial blood is Uirtially pre vented from flowing beneath the skin, and the venous blood, which is almost purple, gives color to the skin. Experiments made last summer in Europe show that the amount of radi ation received from the sun on the surface of the earth in a clear day is greater with a dark blue than with a light blue sky. In the latter case there is a higher'tension of the water vapor in the air. Keen Sense la Loasr Anil Exieriments indicate that spiders have a long range of vision. It is not always possible to tell, however, whether the lower animals perceive by sight or hearing, or by the action air in motion has on their bodies. It is asserted that miae are sensitive to mo tions of the air which to human ears create no sound w hatever. ir ii inr-
