The panel nf Juron colled, with Mr. C. Burlew. as fore nun. bad ma le a record of four conviction* and ooe diMficmeiit. The other panel, with Mr. A. Archer aa foreman, bad a record of seven acquit, tal* out ot ten case*. The defense then-lore NMWht to get some of the latter panel on the case ??d Mr. Clklli challenged Messrs Burlew, u ?! Wilson, and D. Mccaturan. Mr. Padgett chal lenged Mr. stanr >rd nwen Kelly, E. White. l?enl Evenon. <?eo. Ucodacre, and Montgomery Keyesl nil boys, testified that they had obtained liquor air Butler's place. Mr. cahill said that he prowwed to ?how that these lads were precocious youngsters who had banded ti>geih.er In a secret organization known as the "Seven Knights," with Its grips, psssnui?. etc.. with the purpo-te of Imitating tne exploits of the robber heroes of Juvenile fiction. He ibougbt this fact would discredit ihelr testl MJ. This morning Mr. Butler teamed that he had kept the store for seven or eight years, and he had never sold liquor to minors, and l.ls order* were to sell no 'lquor to boy a or to men under the lulu ?5S?2Ll'4,?or- '*orge Reed, a clerk in the store, testified that be had not sold liquor tot be boy Kelly, Wlilt lory, another clerk, ttistined tli.it he was at the store on the day lu question and did not see the boy in the store. The counsel argued the case, the question being simply one of fact. Mr. Cahill, In his argument, ypoke ot the alleged offense as a most atrocious oue and asserted that the penalty was not severe enough, a iu?u who would sell or give a boy of twelve years liquor to drink should be execrate.!. It was the tight only of the physician or the parent to pith a rhlld I quor, and then the irreatest care should be exercised. He, however, argued that his client, Butler, was not the man to commit such an offense, and cialm*-d that the evidence given by tne defendant disproved that given by the boys, and he asked a verdict of acquittal. The Jury found a verdict of guilty. The court said that It bad not been contended T Ir< t the pro prietor had sold the liquor, and he desired to say the clerk should receive attention. He Imposed a sentence, with the costs. amounting to f-?o. Hl|b-Srhiml liiamlnatlono. A 1IW M_4S PROVIDING FOR rXAVtNATIONS ONLT IN CASKS WBBKI NEEDED. The second quarter of the High School year was completed yesterday, and was marked by an lm l?>rtant change lu the work of examinations. Heretofore the plan at this school has been to sub ject every pupil to a written examination in one or two studies at the end of each quarter, the pro gram being *, arranged that at the end of the year t here had been two of these tests in each study of i the ('iHirse. There were formerly no exceptions made in the way 0f exemption from this ordeal, ? xo pt perhajS In cases or Illness. The new plan 1~ a r.idlc il change. All pupils are caretully marked throughout the quarter In their dally ' vork of recitations *c.. and the whole Is averaged ut the end. Those pupils whose average In any study is 75 per cent or over are exempt from any examination in that particular study, while all who fall to obtain such an average are compelled to pass the written test in all ol the subjects In which they have failed during the quarter. This Is a new move here, tending, as It does, to mini- I mlze tne examination work for studt nt.-. of course lor some it means a great deal more, but as these are pupils who need to work the l?;inlest?namely, the ones who are i>oorest In their studies?It Is thought that the new arrangement will prove benen. laL The examinations of those who did not reach the line will take place next Friday, in case one falls there will be an investigation Into' lils .>r her abilities in the particular line In which the deficiency occurs, and If thought advisable und for the best interests of the pupil, the parents win be advised of the fact and the study discon tinued.

At j o'clock in the evening, when t he men who had t**m working at the Shenandoah City and West Shenandoah collieries started home, they were attacked with stones by some tTMawiers. Four coal and Iron policemen lnter ferred and ciptured one Poiander and tried to hustle hlrn off to a Justice office. The police were over-powered and their prisoner taken from them however, the officers, who had been roughly handled, started back for the Shenandoah city mine, followed by the crowd, now numlierlng over a thousand. The latter continued beating the workmen and boys as well, when the omcers in a body again sprang to the rescue. It was a brave act, six men against a cr wd of such proportions, but for live minutes It was successful. Then, as the officers were going off, Moyer andDieberf . with one, and Krelger and Shane with anoiher, the s"rg''d on them again. Krelger got away w ltn his man, and ilnally landed him In -Squire shoemaker s ofTlee. Moyer arid Diebcrt were not so fortunate.

AN IXCTTlNtl DEBATE tN THE FRENCH LUAMBER OV DEITTIES. In the French chamber of deputies, yesterday M. Paul de cassagnac asked leave to interpellate the government in relation to the Legion of Honor decoration vandalsi M. Fallleres, minister of jus tice, expressed his willingness and also agreed to an Immediate debate on t he Interpellation. M. de Launay in a speech declared that the chief culprit In the scandals had not yet been reached. In the course of the debate M. de Cassagnac declared that Justice had not been allowed to take Its course, but had been paralyzed by political Inter vention. The governm-nt ought to produce all the evidence iq ih*-lr possession. M. FIoqu?t president of J he chamber, protested against the disclosure of judicial documents. M. de cassagnac called upon M.

This advice occasioned applause M. ile Cassagnac rejoined: "Such language Is only nt for a pothouse." M.

From the Albany Fair Journal. In the dreamland ot Cuba, where every bonne has barred windows and fortress-like doors, I re alized that the women were prisoners, though I doubt whether they would have valued compas sion Once, like canaries, they have been In duress so many generations as to have lost the stand point from which to Judge between freedom and thraldom. Though I visited towns that had scarcely Known any change, except what earth quakes had brought them, since Cortex rested In them on his way to conquer Mex ico, I Raw no sight so strange as that ot the women lolling In the bench-like sills of the trreat windows, dressed for public view an<l look ing lazily out of their great black orbs at who ever passed along the street. Those who were young were nearly an beautiful, but their elders hail lost their good looks in a superabundance of flesh. They could not go out of doors in the day time except tn their carriages and accom panied by a parent or guardian. And when tiiev went shopolng the clerks attended tliem In their carriages, the ladles sending tor what they wanted to look at and the clerks staggering out tinder great, burdens of goods. \ou can tmaglr.e that shopping there Is neither u pas sion nor a vie, as it Is said to be In Parts. Isn't it In Parts that the women are so fond of It? So, after the morning was spent at housework and a velle-1 visit to cliurjh, the Cuban ladles dressed to loll in t he windows, and t heir sweethearts crept along close to the walls and chatted with them. If no old woman was by to prevent them and If they had proceeded so lar In t heir love-making as to be abl'j to converse with their hearts' delights. Before they could do that t hey had to walk along the streets ever so many tlme3, past their sweet hearts windows, waiting to bo noticed and flirted with, and then came a long period of ogling and ? the exchanging of swift glances and peeping be hind fans and waving ct handkerchiefs?ail ex tremely silly In the eyes of American girl-". One day I was making my way through a (lla mal i>l>:ce of woodland in Canada, on the outskirts of Montreal. B-r-r-r: how cold it was, and how the snow lay piled up all over the country! Sud denly 1 heard merry voices and the crackling of twigs and rustling of brush. Just as suddenly the llgure of a young man in the uniform of the Tuque Bleue Bnowshow Club appeared, ascending aknolL Three girls were at his heels, followed by other young men and women. There was a new view of the possibilities of womanhood, our Yankee girls, best ot all In the best or the sexes, have liberty enougti, but how re w use It to place themselves side by side with the men in their athletic sports: llow ruddy and bright-eyed and wholesome were these Canadian maidens! How superbly tbey were framed and how overflowing wltli animal spirits they were! Afterward 1 saw them skating for hours and covering miles of ice hand In hand with their brothers (and the brothers of other lolks), and at tobogganing, driving, and all the other sports that interested t hem, they were al most, If not quite, the equals of the men. When it came to dancing, as I was Informed, the nierry ones among them took a delight in lin ing the young gentlemen from the states olf their feet, once In a while, and swing ing around with them, as a New York girl might do with a child?II it was small enough. Far over on the Pacific coast of the same coun try and on Vancouver Inland I found auother race of women?squaws of some tribes allied to the Eskimos. They were so ignorant and homely, and belong'-d to such a rude order of civilization, that 1 could scarcely expect to interest any young lady readers In them. But they possessed an interest lor the married ladles and might even arouse envy in the breasts of some fair matrons, for their customs allow each wife to have "an assistant husband." Better yet, their husbands do not se lect their own assistants; this Is lert to the fair ladies themselves. Theseusslstant husbands have to do what the New England lolks call "chores" for the women?get kindling wood, run on errands and make themselves useful In all menial ways. Their only reward and recompense is that If the real husband dies In any ease, or disappears, or goes away for any unconslderable length of time, they marry the woman for whom they have been N On the plains, In Asslnlbola, I found a little lady In the larger of the only two stores In the place, who told me that the lndlansonareservallonclo.se by had begun to grow restless, and were manifest ing the fact by unusual insolence, only the day before a dozen ot the braves had come Into the store, when she was stark alone In It, and had de manded whisky, a commodity they were not al lowed to touch and no one was permitted to sell. She told them she had none, and they sat, as In dians will, for a long time, as If to show her they would not go away until they got It. curiously enough, no one came to the store from the set tlement. By and by the Indians proposed to search for the whlskr. She laughed at them and told them they could search. 1 ney did so, peeping and poking every whert: that they could tnlnk oi. When i hey ottered to go upstairs to her living apartments she stood in the doorway and told them they must not venture there. She tlatteued her back against the door and defled them. She was less than the ordinary height, and did not weigh over 100 pounds, but she quailed them with the eye of a brave and determined woman, and vvuen, presently, some white men came to make some purchases, the Indians too* themselves off. Only a few nights before that this same woman had seen a wolf in her bank yard and had gone out and "shooed" It away with her apron and her scolding. Just as one ot our girls might do with a cat 1 never saw a man that I thought more plucky than she. Perhaps,though, what noludlan or w olf could do might be done by a mouse. But u is beyond all reason to expect the bravest not to fear a mouse. In our southern states one gets still another view of woman. 1 went through the Virginia mountains and learned that south of Mason and Dlxun's line every white woman is a queen. Idol ized by brothers, lius'oand, sons and lathers; re spected as It sainted by her neighbors. When a poor oid woman entered a railroad depot that was crowded by men at a time when It was not ex , ected that any woman would be traveling, every man in that assemblage rose to his feet in order that she lnlirht select what- seat she wished, and those men who were smoking went out and sio-xi in the rain rather than chance to offend her. one of the men who did this was Fltz Hugh Lee, now governor of tne state. That was only one Illustra tion of a chlvalnc deference toward women every where observable and every where reflecting honor on the men who maintained It. The Silent Wife. From the Olncairo Tribune. "Maria," said Mr. Blilus to his wife, in a tone of grave reproach, "for tho last hour or more you have done nothing but find fault with tne neigh bors. It's a bad habit to get into. It you can't say a good word for other folks It is best to keep silent, and say nothlug at alL.

A gentleman stood looking at a horse-car team the other day. One of the horses was a beautiful black, a high stepper, fiery and evidently of fine pedigree. While tho gentlemen were admiring the animal a friend came by and remarked: "l>o you know whose horse that Is?" "No," said the gentleman. "Well," said the mend, "that black colt is the property of Mr. . naming a well known horse fancier. His l*se ran away with him the oilier day. It has I inline so spirited that I be determined to break him down to hard worK. Kvery time he gets a horse t hat worries him Use that he lets the street car company lake hliu and! Use him for a few wee Vs. That takes the life and spirit right out of him and he becomes perfectly tractable. After two w ;eks in a street car busl- I le ss he doesn't run away any more." It is said that other horse fanciers In this and other cities have a similar w ay of breaking in their fiery steeds.

A shocking death I from hydrophobia has Just occurred near Atlanta, tia. Two months ago VViu. Bowen, twenty years old. was met by a large dog, which sprang upon i him. A des|>erate fight ensued between the man and the brute. In which lioweu's clothes were lit- I er.illjr torn to shreds. He finally succeeded in de- I spatchlng the dog, but not until he had lacerated 1 lils hand and ana terribly, the flesh being toru open to the bone. He had the wouud dressed and It healed rapidly. No thoughts uf further trouble wtra entertained until last Saturday, when he complained of nausea, and soon after was taken with spasms aud became delirious. Tneoaroxysms contiuued up to the last moment, and when water or a light was brought near him he would howl and wuine, while he foamed at the mouth and ex hibited every sign of hydrophobia In lis most ag gravated form. For twenty-six hours this horrible suffering continued, when be died. All the neigh borhood is in a terrible state of excitement over the occurrence, and a war upon dogs is In progress. Mrs. Carnks' Foca-LEUoin Esuauement Kims.? An amusing decision has been rendered by the County court of Webster, Ga. Elijah Carnes was selling out for the purpose of moving to Texas, and among his stock was a fine herd of cattle. Mr. carnes owed considerable to the merchants In Preston, and one ot them attached the cattle. It was here that Mrs. Carnes appeared as the claim ant ot the cattle. She said that while Mr. Carnes was paying court to her he was not able to present her-with an engagement ring, and in lieu thereof he presented her with a yearling heifer. This en gagement offering grew and multiplied, and the result Is the herd of cattle, which Is the bona ot contention, is hers. The Judge awarded the cattle to the lady.

This morning a young lady was passing a resi dence on whose steps was a young man and In front of which was a dog. In a flash her feet went out from under her and she went down on the icy walk. The dog in a playful mood rushed to her assistance, while the young man, not at all em barrassed, askeu: ??Did you fall?" "Well, I should think I had," said the young lady, rising and rearranging her head gear. "Yes,'1 responded the youth; "1 thought It must be funny if you sat down to play with the dog." <>i ?? Arc There Other Habitable World* ? From Good Words. Here, again, we have only conjecture to guide us. With respect to the bodies constituting the solar system, which from their comparative prox imity to the earth might be supposed to furnish a solution to this problem, earefui;observatlons have heretofore offered no indication whatever of the existence of life upon their surfaces. But life in some form or another may, notwithstanding, exist on those bodies. We must bnar In mind that the planets are in all probability in various stages of development. It inav be reasonably presumed that the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Nep tune. in consequence of their enormous bulk, have cooled down more slowly than the earth and the other smaller planets of the solar system, and are therefore less advanced as abodes of animated ex istence than the latter are. But even In the case of the earth It uifcst be admitted to have revolved millions of years round the sun merely a3 a flery orb before life appeared on Its surface, and even after it had cooled down and become the abode of animated existence it produced, during countless millions of years more, life only In Its lowest forms. The existence ot man is but of yesterday. This Is un instructive lesson. It teaches us that, although mac exists on the earth's surface It does not follow that beings of the same order of intelligence as man exists upon all the other planets or even upon any or them. Upon some of the planets lite may not have yet come Into existence; upon others life may exist, but In a less advanced stage than upon the earth; and the same remark Is obviously applicable to the numberless bodies of the starry firmament. The state of the question then is tills: We cannot pro nounce positively upon the existence of life any where beyoud t he planet upon which we dwell. But reasoning from analogy, we may suppose that certain, 11 not all, of the other bodies ol the plan etary system, which In so many respect* bear a strong affinity to our own planet, are in like man ner the abodes ot life In some form or another, and that similarly there are countless bodies in the stellar regions, which may also be the abodes of lite. This Is a question, however, upon which the noble science of astronomy, so distinguished ror the exactitude of Its conclusions, does not venture to pronounce a positive opinion, seeing that there exists no sure basis of facts available for its con sideration. In these circumstances It Is left lor each individual inquirer to form his own opinions Independently of any support deilved from scien tific authority. nn. Hendricks Complains. SUE THINKS snK IS AT LEAST ENTITLED TO 1IER HC8 11 AN U S SALARY KOR KOUR YEARS. The Indianapolis Sentinel publishes an interview wi'li Mrs. Hendricks. Recently a Cincinnati news paper gave a brief conversation with her, In winch she was represented as reflecting on congress for not voting her the .entire salary of the deceased Vice-President. ??It is true," ssld Mrs. Hendricks, "that I made some statements In regard to the matter, but It was not at iny own solicitation. I was accosted by a reporter as I was getting on the train, and he broached the subject wltn the question whether I knew that Mrs. Blair and Mrs. Logan had just received substantial pensions. Tne subject is exceedingly distasteful to me, but now that It has been entered upon I may as well express my views on the mat ter. In brlet, I will say that I do not think I have been treated Just right. Fortunately, I am In such circumstances that I do not require assistance at the hands pf the nation, but it would be absurd for me to assert that such would not be welcome If It should be proffered freely. The republican party seem to have taken better care of Its fallen leaders tuan the democratic party has done. Mr. Hendricks gave the wholo of his life to the service of the democratic party, and freely poured out his best energy and strength In its behalf. Its call was his 1 duty, and what la the reward?" Mrs. Hendricks spoke with a good deal of feeling and with a slight tinge of bitterness. She eon continued: "Yes, I ask, what was the reward? At the death of the man whom tne whole democratic party and the country delighted to honor, they proffered the pitiful sum of one year's salary to his bereaved widow. Loud were the acclamations of the democratic party leaders that here had died a man who had been the means of saving his party from defeat, who had been the means ot putting the party in power tor the first time in a long period ot years. But what has the nation done? I do not want to pose as seek ing eleemosynary offerings from the Gov ernment, but it looks to me as It there Is being an Injustice done. The money for my husband's four years' term Is lying lu the Treasury at Washing ton. There has been no one appointed to fill his va cated position. Then why be so niggardly In with holding that which is only a trifle to the country, and Is at the same time so palpably due to Mr. Hen dricks' widow ob a partial recognition ol the serv ices he had rendered the democratic party and the country, which no one will deny to him." Referring to the model for a statue o( her hus band, recently selected, she said: "Mr. Parks' de sign was a beautiful creation as a work ot art, but as a/ae simile of my husband it was a failure. I cannot understand the obstinacy of the committee in persisting In the acceptance ot this design against my strong reluctance to give it my ap proval. i have seen the statues of Sumner and others In Mew York, and, as I was personally ac aualnted with some ot them, as I looked at them ley almost seemed to speak to me.

The Berlin Rriehtanxriger says the governments of Germany and Austria have deckled to publish the treaty of alliance concluded between them on October 7,1879, in order to end the doubts enter tained regarding the purely defensive intention of the treaty. The terms of the treaty follow: Arti cle flrst stipulates that should either of the two countries, contrary to the hope and wish of the contracting parties, be attacked by Russia, each Is pledged to assist the other with Its enure mili tary force, and only to conclude peace upon such terms as both agree to accept. Article second provides that should either country be attacked by any other power the other pledges itself not to support the aggressor, but to maintain an atti tude of neutrality. Should Russia assist the ag gressor, however, article one comes into force, and war operations will then be carried on in com mon. The Vienna Abendpott of Friday also gives the terms of the Austro-German treaty. The publica tion of the treaty Is considered as a warning to Russia and those who have been trying to divide Germany and Austria. It Is stated that Italy in 1HW7 accepted all the stipulations of the treaty, both in an active and passive sense. ??? The Cheeaeanaker'a Bride.

Hound to (Jet There* From the Albany Artfiu. Late on Thursday afternoon a solitary horseman drew rein in front of the Medberry Hotel in Balls ton Spa, and In chilly tones called for the landlord to take his horse, which when done by the hostler gave the stranger a chance to enter the house, lie 1 stated that he was en route for Gloversvllle, and had driven a few miles west of oalway village when he became snowbound. Leaving his cutter i at a farm house he mounted his horse and rode to Ilailston Spa, where he intended to take the Sche nectady train. He was informed that all trains had been abandoned. "But," he exclaimed in agonized tones, "I'vo got to gel to Gloversvllle to-night, as I am going to be married." He was told he could not go by rail, and to make himself at home. Seating himself at the writing desk he called lor paper and envelopes, saying he would write, but was told, of course, that the inall could not go any more than he could. Tliestranger, thinking over the disappointment of the wouiJ-be bride, ordered his horse, and, wrapping himself in blankets, left for Gloversvllle on horseback, a ride of miles. ?0? ; The Doll Dor tor of I.eipslc. From the Paris American Rorlater. The denizens of Lelpslc, young and old, mourn the loss of one of the most modest and retiring, yet most skillful operators, Frau Emma Frlederlke Schneider, oetter known as the "doll doctor,'* who died there last week. For more than half a cen tury, every since the death of her husband and child, this quaint, quiet, and indefatigable woman has devoted her life and skill to the repairing and freshening up of dolls. In which occupation she had attained not only an Incredible dexterity, out also won the hearts of the growing as well as the grown generations of lelpslc. A visit to her atelier was one ol the sights of the city. Those who were permitted to enter the sacred precincts could only do so standlng?chalrs, tables, the floor, the walls. In fact every available place, was cov ered with "cripples" or both sexes, boys and girls in rags or entirely without habiliments, that lacked one or both eyes, one or both arms, or legs or reet, the "'Innards," a nose, a wig, or the halt ?<r whole ot a head, Sc., and that were turned out as good as new by the quiet, almost dwarfed little woman, to the delight ot the juvenile possessors. Her sphere or usetulness was conllned to Lelpslc only?no outsiders needed apply. Her loss will Indeed be "irreparable" tor a long time to come. The latest In Stationery* From the N. O. Time*- Democrat. The very latest thing out In the way ot station ery Is an envelope ot leather, which can be locked and sent through the malls without being tam pered with. It will doubtless come into general use as a sate covering tor lovers' epistles. The locked envelope Is thus described: It is ot leather, alligator skin or morocco. Upon the back or the envelope Is a tiny staple ot gold or silver, over which ilts snugly a link ot similar material at tached to the flap, and this Is secured by a dainty little padlock with a Yale lock. Upon the lace la nn open pocket ror the insertion or a card bearing the address and the necessary postage stamp. Two tiny keys accompany each envelope. Having furnished Phyllis with one or these, corydon may pour rorth his heart s tenderest devotion to her upon paper, lock It up and send It on its way re joicing In the certainty that she only to whom It is directed will be able to scan Its sacred pages. That the envelope will supply a long-relt want in the world ot courtship cannot be doubted. ??? An Enthusiastic Supe. From the Troy Times. | once when Edwin Forrest went to Detroit he produced "Metatnora." Supers were engaged to personate warriors, and among them was a bright Irish lad who had a lurid admiration tor the great tragedian. At that point in the play where M?ta mora asks: "Am I not the great chlet ot the Pot tawatomies?" the supers are supposed to grunt: "1'gh' I'gh'." The stage manager had carefully drilled them In what they were expected to do, but on the night ot the performance our young rnend was so transported by Forrest's acting as to quite rorget that, he was Impersonating an In dian. When Forrest turned to the assembled w.irrlorsand thundered rorth: "Am I not the great chlet of tne Pottawatomles?" the Irish boy s enthusiasm broke all restraint. He leaped Into the air with a wild shout, and, twirling his toma hawk about his head, replied: "Yees air! yees air."' To Keep Plant* In Winter. From the Popular Science Monthly. A new principle for keeping plants through the winter without artlflclal heat was recently shown at Regent s Park, London, with the plants grown In them, last winter. The essence of the invention is that all light and heat shall previously pass through a shallow layer of water. Tho water Is found to exercise a great control over tempera ture, protecting plants entirely from trost In win ter and trorn excessive direct heat In summer. The application involves no difficulty. In the case ol a garden trame a sliding "water light," about three inches deep, Is rnaue to lit over the rrame containing tho plants, the only difference rroni a glass light being that It holds water and is always placed in a flat position. The depth ot water generally kept In the tank Is about two Inches lu summer and winter, and halt the depth In spring and autumn. Chaperone Catrcw at Toboggan Slide*. From the Chlcatro Herald. When the entire north sldo upper-tendom Joined the Toboggan Club they did not at the same mo ment torget all the proprieties. It was generally agreed among the venerable "patrons and patron esses" ot the club that young and unmarried wo men Just as much required to be chaperoned while flying down an Icy slide In the dark, clasped In the arms or a youug man, as they did at a ball In a neighbor's house. The Idea, however, was tor a while full or difficulties. It was not to be sup posed, tor instance, that the most self-sacrtflclug ot the dueanas would go to the length ot putting on shOrt blanket dresses and leggings and tobog gan caps, especially not t he short and fat ones. Neither was It reasonable to suppose that the old ladles would stand out patleutly at the top ot the sUde, with the thermometer 10 degrees below zero, and good naturedly stamp around tor two hours on the boards while the young ones were having their fun. . . . . In this crisis a bright mind, who saw the peril of the situation, hit upon the pretty conceit of build ing a house directly over the slide and Just In the middle of It. It solved the whole question and saved the club. Now nightly the chaperones ensconce themselves In this Utile block house and watch their charges lrorn this coign of vantage. They are helped to torgettulness by a Are which is kept red hot all the while by the more thoughtful and diplomatic among the young men. It any ?ood soul, however, cares to be especially watch ul, she can, by springing actively trom one win dow to another, watch her charge every moment of the time, and even, by a code of signals, signify her displeasure, if she feels any.

Uncle Sam s representative, however, was not to be shaken off, and he hung on. The ladder was again swung into position. He climbed up --till further, and got lils hand on the rail. It was pushed off and 1 he ladder let go. Hut for the fact that the steamer, which was underway, sucked the yawlboat close to her side, he would have gone overboard. As It was, he fell a distance of M feet or more down Into the yawl, ;,nd at the same time the bell In the steamship's engine-room was heard to ring tot more steam. The Nortu Erin then steamed out of the cap?s, taking ihe uilot. Mr Face, with her. He will probably be sent back by the nrst steamer the fleeing Kngllsliman meets. Deputy Marshal Sullivan returned to the plioiboat Graves and took a passing English cotton-laden steamer, she being on her way to Newport News for coal, she ancuored cff Thimble Light, and re mained all night. Mr. sgliivan got off at old Point this morning, and look the tug commodore for Norfolk. On Ills arrival here he reported the fact*) to Judge Hughes. This will make a case lor the state Department. Canada Does tbe Square Thing. 8BE A 1.1.0WM THE V'-TRESSED YANKEE SCHOONERS TO LAND ?.,J SELL TUEIK HSU. Collector ltoss at Halifax, N. s., Thursday re ceived inquiries from Minister of customs Howell In regard to the circumstances of the arrival of the American schooners Moonlight and Whlttler and the possibility of freezing or curing their fresh fares pending necessary repairs. The col lector replied, showing the Impossibility of doing eithei. They had no facility to salt thensli, and halibut were too thick to freeze. The \ -ssels could not go on the marine railway till that con cern thawed out, and meanwhile the 10,000 pounds of halibut were certainly spoiling, l uoti receipt of these assurauces from the collector Minister Bowell ga\e permission for the lauding and sale of the fares upon payment of the regular duty of halt a cent per pound, but distinctly sui> ulated that this action uuder these exceptional circumstances should not be regarded as a prece dent. The Bright Idea of Two Chicago Wo* men. From the Chicafto Mail. The ladles' down-town toUet room will probably be the next t hlng. Some weeks ago a lady who has been so^ournlnj In Paris many months had occasion to visit Chicago. Being down town one day, she desired what comes to all women?to uso her chamois and its companion, she could rind no place that was not more public than accorded with her notions. She made complaint to 1 lady friend, and the two rell to scheming, as wotaen do when aloce. I have been permitted to overhear enough to say that the plants to secure a central location and outtlt the room with all those little things which make a woman's happiness com plete?easy chalrydivans, and every conceivable artl le In the tfillet line. Private apartments where a lady may put ou the rouge or pencil to her heart's ease, or. if necessary, rearrange her entire dress accoutermtnt. A light lunch will be In readiness. The place will be for the fair sex exclusively, it Is not designed to be- a meeting place. Men will have no occasion to go there, and if one should happen In by mistake he will get such a reception as will not lead him to try again This scheme will be the only one of the kind In this country. Her l.aat l.nllab). A MOTHER DIES WHILE SING I NO HER BABIES TO SLEEP. Mrs. Julia Sophia Walker, of San Francisco, died at her home on Friday night under peculiar cir cumstances. She was a handsome, vigorous woman, not yet thirty years old, and mother of two children, one a baby and the other about four years old. Save for their company she was alone In the evening. She was busy with her household cares, and the children climbed about her until shortly after 8 o'clock, when it came their bed time. she tucked them In their cribs by the tire and, klsslag them good-mght, turned dowu the light that they might sleep the better. (;olnir then Into the parlor adjoining, she left the door ajar, and, sitting at the piano, played lor a time In u sort strata as a lullaby. Alter a time the music ceased abruptly, and the elder child was aroused by a sound from the parlor like a heavy falL Call ing its mamma repeatedly and receiving no reply tho Utile one arose, went into the parlor, and there, by the piano, on the door. Just as she had fallen from tbe stool, lay the inotuer, dead Mr Walker reached home within a lew minutes' therel after and was overwhelm ,-d at the spectacle which greeted his entrance. His wife lay dead and his children were crying with frtght. The coroner was informed, but, as death plainly resulted from heart disease, no lnqaest will be held. The Lady, tbe Burglar, and the Dog. From the Kansas City Tlmea. A dog fancier declares that a watch-dog is of no use to a lady, because If he barks and arouses her she is more frightened than Is the burglar; while a dog that will attack without barking is sure not to be a social companion, such as a lady likes to have in her boudoir. "I once sold a fine boll terrier to an elderly lady who, distrusting servants, and living all alone in her house, thought she needed such a protector, coming down to light the fire one morning, she was horrified to And her dog grimly watching > burly rufflan In the kitchen. '? 'If you please, marm,' said the man, touching his cap as she entered, 'I ain't took notnln' yeu That 'ere wild beast o' yourn would a tore me to small bits if I had. He's been a-keepln' his eye 00 me, marm, and If I'd stirred a step he'd a ben at me. Pve put in a moat uncommon nasty nif ht. marm, and I do hopes you wont be bard on me.' *sne was not hard upon him. She gave him Ms breakfast and allowed him to go unmolested. Then she came round to my place with the dog and sold him back to me at half-price, saying that if 1 had told her be was so remorseless a brute she would never have allowed him In her house at all." Sauouby condoles wm thb Landlords.?a deputation of Irish landlords waited upon Lord Salisbury yesterday and urged that they might be compensated for the tosses they had suffered through recent legislation. They denounced the r -Stilts of the land commission's work. Lord Salis bury congratulated them that they had at last awakened to tbe importance of a umn?i.wil energetic policy of self-defense, if tho promised fully ty consider thstr proposals.
