govern the others also. At all the

TOMB OF CONFUCIUS.'
Beached by an Avenue Lined with Bto Be
Flgnree or Animal* and Myth*.
The city of Chufu-hsien, the Mecca
of the believers of Confucianism, is in
the province of Shangtung, one of the
most populous districts of the orient.
Here Confucius was born and here his
sacred bones lie buried. The tomb,
which is located in one of the largest
cemeteries in the province, about
three miles out from the city above
mentioned, is described by the St.
Louis Republic as one of the most im
posing in the whole empire. The grave
itself is surmounted by an earth
mound about twelve feet in height, the
whole surrounded by a cluster of
gnarled oaks and stately cypress trees.
He fore the mound is a tablet about six
feet broad and twenty feet high, upon
which is inscribed the names and deeds
of the great founder of Confucianism,
a religion adhered to by over four hun
dred million human beings. The bur
den of this inscription, according to
reliable translation, is "Perfect One,"
"Absolutely Pure," "Perfect Sage,"
'First Teacher," "Great Philosopher,"
ete. The avenue which leads up to
the philosopher's tomb is even more in
teresting than the actual place of
burial itself. On each side of this
avenue are rows of huge animals cut
in stone—lions, tigers, elephants and
horses, beside numerous mythical
creatures, such as animals half dog
and half frog, beasts with four legs
and twice avmany wings, besides a mul
titude of unnamable monsters that
never lived on the earth, in the water
or in the air. Taken altogether the
burial place of Confucius is one of the
chief snots of interest in the orient.
THE TERM "YANKEE."
Various Theories Which Here Been Ad.
vanced as to Its Origin.
The theories which have been ad
vanced as to the origin of the name
Yankees are numerous. According to
Thierny, it was a corruption of Jakin,
a diminutive of John, which was a
nickname given by the Dutch colo
nists of New York to their neighbors
in the Connecticut settlements.
In a history of the American wax
written by Dr. William Gordon and
published in 1789 was another theory.
Dr. Gordon said that it was a cant
word in Cambridge, Mass., as early as
1713, used to denote especial excellence

was originally a byword in the college,
and being taken by the students into

general currency in New England, ana

parts of the country and applied to
New Englanders as a term of slight re
Auburv, an English writer, says that
it is derived from a Cherokee word—
eankee—which signifies coward and
slave. This epithet was bestowed upon
the inhabitants of New England by
the Virginians for not assisting them
in a war with the Cherokees. The
most probable theory, however, is that
advanced by Mr. lieckewelder—that
the Indiars in endeavoring to pro
nounce the word English, or Anglais,
made it Yengees or Yangees and thii
originated the term.

buiiie of the Appalling boulters That
llsve \Ulteil Japan.
Earthquakes are of so frequent oc
currence in Japan that they are looked
upon as a matter of course, and unless
they are accompanied with a serious
loss of life and destruction of property,
tiie outside world hears little of them.
Some of the earliest Japanese tradi
tions. says Harper's Weekly, are of ex
tremely destructive earthquakes, and
many fanciful tales are told of those
which happened previous to tin* times
of trustworthy historical records. Hut
there are many authentic records ol
earthquakes which destroyed whole
cities. The most serious of these dis
turbances in recent times was that ol
ls'gi, when, in Yedo, which was the
center of the quake, 14.J41 dwelling
houses and 1,64'J fireproof storehouses
were overturned. In the last days of
the past October there was a very serf- j
ous earthquake about Oifu and Nagoya. j
and there was great loss of life and
property. There were slight earth- j
quakes on Sunday, October -sth, j
and these continued with inereas-1
iug severity until the morning of the
following Friday. During the last twe
days of the quake, distinct
shocks were felt and recorded. At (lifu
the houses tumbled down and caught
fire, and those people nut caught in the
ruins lied to the country and the hills:
but in nearly every house it is reported
that one or more unfortunate victim
was caught. How great the loss of life
has been has not yet been reported, but
enough is *» cwn to place the loss at
several thousands. When the firs!
shock was felt at tiifu the up and down
trains on the Takaido railway were
just meeting. The shock was accom
panied by a rumbling sound, and the
people on the train thought that there
had been a collision. On looking outof
the windows, however, they saw the
station in ruins, and the water in s
neighboring pond dashing violently
from side to side. As the shocks con
tinued, cracks in the earth were ob
served two or three feet wide, opening
and closing. The shipping in the vari
ous hi bors was very much injured, anc
one ship which recently arrived at San
Francisco reported that when seventy
miles at sea a violent shock was felt,
the sea was lashed into a foam, the
waves broke over the decks, and th«
maintopmast and crosstrees were lost
These disturbances at sea have beet
very common in previous earthquakes,
and several limes great ships in Japa*
nese ports have had great difficulty it

ANIMALS LOVE THE WEED.
A liar, and Colt That Will Chew All tbi
Tobacco They Can Get.
The claim set forth from time im
memorial by tobacco haters, that nr
animal would touch the weed, thai
even the hog felt above it, seems des
lined to receive a serious setback. Eu
gene Russell, a farmer living on the
Post Bay road near Lake Ontario, it
the owner of a mare and colt that art
extremely fond of tobacco. The marc
formed the habit long before the birtl
of the colt, and in the case of the young
ster the appetite seems to have been in
herited. Three years ago Mr. ltussel
decided that he would cure the mart
of her labit, and to do so he gave hei
two pounds of fine cut which she de
voured with relish. This not fazing
her a bit he tried leaf tobacco, of whicl
he is a producer in a small way. Aftei
stowing away a quantity of this sh<
showed symptoms of distress. Shf
was dizzy, and wanted to lie down ant
think over her sins, about as a smal
boy might have wanted to do undei
similar circumstances. This settlec
her, as far as the plain leaf was con
cerned. She has never tasted it since
though fine cut touches the spot th<
same as ever it did.
This was not long previous to thf
birth of the colt, and the little fellov
exhibited almost from the first the
"hankering" for a chew. It was be
stowed while he was yet at nurse, ant
from that day to this both animals wil
follow any stranger all over the lo'
who has the smell of tobacco about hit
clothes. The colt, strange to say, was
not affected by the mother's aversior
to natural leaf but loves that even bet
ter than fine cut and masticates all o:
either that is forthcoming. Both ani
mals are beauties, and no healthier an
to be found in horseflesh in these parts
Mr. Russell says he thinks the use o?
tobacco has kept them from having in
testinal worms, which so often distres.-
horses and injufe their digestion. Th<
mare is now eleven years old and thi
colt is over two.

A Freak of Nature, Born Earless — HI*
Hair %Vas Piebald.
Ezekiel Eads, who died in Green*
county, N. Y., in thespringof 1885, wai
surely a fit subject for a dime museum
even though he never descended to tha
level, says the Wheeling (W. Va.) Reg
ister. Strictly speaking, Eads was ii
several respects a most remarkabh
creature. He was born without cars
not even having apertures where thi
ears should have been. His deformity
sad as it was, may be said to have beer
partly alleviated by the curious con
struction of the inner portion of hii
head, which enabled him to hear com
mon conversation through his mouth.
When addressed he would instantlj
open his mouth and readily give an
swers to interrogations put to him ii
an ordinary tone of voice. But Ezekiel'i
lack of ears was not his only distinction
He had a heavy crop of black hau
spotted with white, the spots them
selves being in exact shape of humai
cars, feet, hands, etc. When he wa
quite a small boy it was noticed tha
his black hair was interspersed witl
oddly shaped spots of white, which
however, did not take on their dis
tinctive shapes until he had passed hi
W hen Mr. Eads' died he left one son
aged forty-five, whose hair was as blacl
as coal, not a single gray hair being dis
cernible, and another son, thirteei
years of age. whose hair was as gTay a
that of a man of seventy.
Wealth Out of a Poor Farm,
There is a man in Alabama who, ac
cording to the New Orleans States,
takes life very easy for the simple rea
son that his farm extends up and down
the Louisville & Nashville railroad for
a distance of fifty or sixty miles. A
great many persons will be disposed to
doubt this statement, but nevertheless
it is the truth. A short time ago the
old Alabama countryman was a victim
of impecuniosity because his farm was
so poor that the cats would not stay on
it, but one day the engineers of the
road came along and discovered that
his farm was nothing more than a vast
deposit of gravel, the very material
they desired to use as ballast for the
bed of the road. They endeavored tc
buy the farm outright, but the old
countryman stubbornly refusing to
sell the only home he had on earth it
was finally arranged to pay him a roy
alty on every car load of gravel taken
from his land. The royalty has made
him rich, and as the supply of gravel
is practically inexhaustible he will
soon be able to boast that his farm is
the largest in the world and extends
ill the way from New Orleans te Louis-,

POISON FOR APACHE ARROWS;

will not leave to the squaws. lie gath
ers a dozen or more rattlesnake heads
and puts them in a spherical earthen
vessel. With these he puts half a pint
of a species of large red ant that is
found in many parts of Arizona. The
bite of this ant is more poisonous than
that of a bee. Upon these he pours a
bit of water and then seals up with
moist earth the lid of this vessel. He
then digs a hole two feet deep into the
ground, in which he builds a roar
ing fire and puts in some stones.
When the interior of the hole and the
stones are red-hot he makes a place in
the bottom for the earthen vessel and
puts it in. Alxrnt it and upon it he puts
the coals and hot stones, and upon the
top he builds a fierce fire and keeps it
up for twenty-four hours. Then he digs
out his vessel, and, standing off with a
long pole, he disengages the top and lets
the fumes escape. The Indian insists
that if the fumes should come in hia
face they would kill him. The mass
left at the bottom of the vessel is a
dark brown paste. To test the efficacy
of his concoction a recent traveler saw
an Indian with his hunting knife make
a cut in his bare leg just below the
knee and let the blood run down to his
ankle. Then taking a stick he dipped
it into the poison aud touched the de
scending blood at the ankle. It imme
diately began to sizzle, as if it were
cooking the blood, and the poison fol
lowed the blood right up the leg, siz
zling its wav until the Indian scraped
the blood off with the knife. The sav
age assured the pale face that had he
allowed the poison to reach the mouth
of the wound he would have been a
dead man in twenty minutes.
THE GRAND OLD WOMAN.
A Kama to Which Mrs Gladstone Is En.
Sir Andrew Clark has often been
heard to say that Mrs. (Gladstone is
quite as much entitled to the name of
the Grand Old Woman as her evergreen
husband is to that of the Grand Old
Man. On January 13 last, says the
London Telegraph, Mrs. Gladstone's
eightieth birthday came round and she
passed the morning in writing letters to
her friends in England, a task which
she accomplished without wearing
glasses of any kind as aids to her sight.
In fact, she has never yet known what
it is to need spectacles, and yet her eyes
are as bright as those of a young
woman. Every morning passed by Mr.
and Mrs. Gladstone at Hawarden sees
them both at church, nearly three
fourths of a mile from the castle.
Close to the church is the corrugated
iron building in which Mr. Gladstone
has already deposited about twenty
thousand volumes, the overflow of his
own private library at the castle, every
volume of which he has placed with his
own hand on the shelves of the new
library, which he has given to the par
ish of HaWarden. Be the weather what
it may, the prime minister invariably
walks to church and back, taking par
ticular pleasure in this matutinal exer
cise when snow is falling heavily. Mrs.
Gladstone goes thither and back in her
little pony carriage, which Bhe drives
herself. It is said that Mr. Gladstone
does not know what it is to have a head
ache or to suffer from cold feet
WHITE HORSE OF LAMBOURNE.
The Strange Natural Formation Which
Mix Be Seen on nn EngUih HUlilde.
In Berkshire, England, is situated a
hill on the steep sides of which is the
figure of a gigantic horse whose di
mensions are almost an acre in extent.
The head, neck, body and tail of this
wonderful figure consist of wide
white lines, as does also each of its
four legs. The outlines of this mon
strous specimen of the genus equinus
are formed by cutting trenches in the
chalk, of which the hill is mainly com
posed, the ditches being from two to
three feet deep and about ten feet in
width. The chalk of the trenches be
ing of a beautiful white and the sur
roundings the greenest of the green,
makes the figure of the horse plainly
discernible, according to the Philadel
phia Press, at a distance of about
twelve miles. This is the famous
"White Horse of I.ambourne." The
white horse is known to have been the
standard of the Saxons, and some have
supposed that this monster emblem
atic figure was made by liengist, one
of the Saxon kings. Mr. Wise, an an
tiquarian who has written much on
the white horse of Berkshire, brings in
several arguments to prove that this
figure was made by or under orders
from Alfred during the reign of Ethel
red, his brother, and that it is a monu
ment to a victory over the Danes in the
year 871. Other well-known writers
are of the opinion that the celebrated
white horse is a natural freak—one of
nature's oddest oddities. Ashmead-
Burrton thinks that the early tribes
noticed that the outlines of the freak
resembled a horse to a certain extent
and that they worked it into its pres
ent shape-, at least that they gave the
outlines their present graceful sym
metry. However this may be, it has
been the custom since time out of mem-
ory f'>r the neighboring 1 peasants to
assemble on a certain day of each
year, usually about midsummer, to
clear away tiie weeds from around the
white horte and to trim the edges of
the trenches s«» as to preserve the color
and shape. This task is known all
over England as ••scouring' the white
A FIERCE BATTLE WITH GEESE.
I'enillur Koperleiirr of a Tioga Mush
An interesting and rather peculiar
battle, says the Philadelphia Times,
was witnessed the other morning by a
number of persons who were driving
along the old summer road, in the
Twenty-eighth ward. In a field lying
on the north side of the old thorough
fare and east of Harris' Bcllevue truck
farm an aged Herman was gathering
mushrooms, and while peering about
the pasture for the toothsome fungi, in
a stooping attitude, a flock of "Gander
hill" geese strutted under a post and
rail fence from a neighboring jsind and
marched with their necks extended at
full length toward the stranger, who at
first paid no attention to their hissing,
but continued, every now and again to
reaeli down and pick a mushroom.
lie soon learned to his sorrow that
the geese were considerably above the
average flock for bold persistency and
determined fight. One old gander acted
as leader, anil, after .marshaling his
forces into position, led on to the fight
by luridly attacking the intruder and
striking liira a stunning blow on the
nose. Before lie could recover from the
effect two of the geese, one from each
side, flew at his face, each taking hold
of an ear and holding on with bull-dog
tenacity, while they battered his head
and face with their clipped wings.
The sharp points of the cut feather
stems brought the blood from his cheeks
and forehead at every flap, lie jumped
and pranced around like mad. wildly
gesticulating and .muttering cries and
curses in German.
Two others of his feathery assailants
flew upon his hack and began peeking
him on the head and neck, while the
others took hold upon the legs of his
trousers and his coat tails and tugged
till they fairly dragged him to a
swampy part of the field, where one of
poor fellow's feet sank in the 'slippery
mud and he fell backward in the slime.
A man in one of the passing wagons
hurried to his assistance, armed with a
bean pole snatched from the truck gar
dens. 11c arrived just in time to pre
vent the enraged geese from killing
Even the blows from the tough cedar
bean pole for a time had no effect on the
geese, and it was not until five of them,

lie was led out to the old Summer
road, placed in the wagon, and kindly
driven to his home in Tioga. The only
reason that can Ih> given for the unu
sual behavior of the geese is that a rag
picker who resembled the German in
appearance about a week ago carried
away several goslings that belonged to
one of the geese.
PROGRESS IN RAILWAY BUILDING
Advance Made In the United State* and
fe t.reat Krltaln.
Great liritain and Ireland have now
about 20,000 miles of railways, of which
a little over one-half are double
tracked. Their capital stock and debt
amount to the enormous sum of $600,-
000,000. The net earnings were last
year a little over 4 per cent, of the capi
tal invested and the gross earnings
were for last year almost $410,000,000.
The railway system of the Knifed
Kingdom is practically finished, says
the Ihttsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph.
Nothing in the way of new
railroad construction is going on
worth mentioning. A little over
100 miles of new road were added,
and a part of this was an exceptional
matter. The picture presented in these
few figures is that of a finished coun
try, fully developed in all parts and re
Now turn to the United States. Our
mileage now amounts to 171,000 miles,
more than eight times as large as that
of Great Rritain. The gross earnings
last year amounted to over a thousand
millions of dollars. During this time
there were railroads of a total length
of nearly 4,000 miles constructed. In
other words, every three or four years
we build as many miles of railroad as
the total number that suffices the Eng
lish, Scotch and Irish people.
And the American task is not done by
any means. The growth along exist
ing lines can well be imagined when it
is considered that the English railways
serve a population of 39,000,000, or one
mile for every 1,000 inhabitants, while
our 170,000 miles serve for 60,000,000 of
people, or one mile for 360 inhabitants.

Prince Ernst, of the Saxe-Meiningen,
who married Miss Jansen, the daughter
of the German historian, a few days

the second son of the aged reigning
duke of Meiningen and his second wife,
a princess of Hohenlohc-Langenburg.
The eldest son of the duke is married
to Princess Charlotte, of Prussia, eldest
sister of the present emperor of Ger

the "Hohenzollern Venus." Prince
Ernst has lived in Munich, and owing
to his literary and scicnti6c tastes is
extremely popular in the cultivated cir
cles of society in the llavarian capital.
It was in Munich that he met his wife,

Few Words of Counsel, Especially to Democrats.
Olympia, Wash., Sept. 11, 1894.
It is especially desirable that a full representation be present by
delegates at the Democratic County Convention, to be held in Olym
pia, on Saturday, Sept. 22d, to elect delegates to the State Conven
tion, and if deemed advisable at that time, to select a county ticket.
The political conditions seem to be auspicious of success. There is
victory for a bold, determined, aggressive campaign for an adminis
tration of county affairs which will lighten the burden resting upon
the shoulders of the taxpayer. There is a triumph for the principles
which recognize equality before the law and special privileges to
none. For the lirst time in many years we have a divided enemy to
fight. For the first time those who have been giving life and strength
to the Republican party have been relegated to back places—not by
their own consent or of their own volution—but to serve the selfish
purpose of a new element which by " ways that are dark and tricks
that are vain" have begun the arduous task of erecting a new party
fabric on the ruins of the old. To accomplish this, they are com
pelled to show reason why they have deposed their leaders They
admit that the administration of public affairs has been, and still is,
extravagant and profligate. Their platform charges the blame to the
system of public service established by law, which was enacted by
Legislatures largely Republican and which have been administered
almost exclusively by Republican officers, State and county. What
better grounds could we ask for successful warfare?
With a divided foe; with our own ranks united; with the im
perative necessity for a change; with the profligate record of the
enemy to curse and the prestige of Democracy everywhere it has
gained a foothold to bless; with hope aroused and hearts exultant, a
good, enthusiastic beginning will ensure triumphant results.
Mark the prediction! Surely as each Democrat does his full duty
in this contest, just so sure will victory be ours in November. To
begin aright is one great essential for success. That duty is upon us
now. We want a full representation. Come in person. Do not
send proxies. Let every precinct l>e up and doing. The crisis in
public affairs demands that every citizen do his full duty.
By order of the Central Democratic Club.
