A pointer dog overheard the remark and start ed out. In a little while he return ed, bringing a rabbit he had caught, and laid it at his master's feet. This operation was repeated until the sagacious animal had brought in four rabbits. The next day the dog was ordered to go for more rabbits and did so, catching three. No. 2. The Louisville Courier Journal saya a boy by the name of Sharp was crossing North Elkhorn on the ice near Georgetown when he broke through and was unable to get out. His dog, a large St. Ber nard, attempted to rescue him, but failing vent up on the bank and set up such a continued howling that some workmen in an adjoining field were attracted to the spot. They procured a long pole and helped the boy out, although he was In almost a senseless stupor. No. 3. A valuable hound attempt ed to run the gauntlet of the swing ing doors in the Bradford, Pa., oil exchange, which resulted in the lyss of three inches of the end of his ;ail. Being a great favorite among the members they nearly all gathered around the dog and paid no atten tion to business. By the time tho doctor got the wound dressed a few bulls, who remained at their posts, had the price up two cents and suc ceeded in unloading before the others had realized the situation. No. 4. Last "Monday evening, 3ays a Georgia paper, a stranger came into a saloon in Montague and called for a drink, which was handed him. He raised the glass to his lips, when a large dog took him by the collar and tried to pull him out of the door. A crowd collected around and attempted to take the dog off, sup posing it would hurt him, but the stranger said: "Let him alone he is my dog. I have been on a spree at Bowlie, and th dog pulled me out of the saloon there and made me sober up." The stranger left without his drink accompanied by his faithful dog. No. 5. Lovers of superstition, ac cording to the Chicago Herald, are revelling in a singular thing which happened at Quincy during the ill ness of the late Samuel Medill, the journalist. When he went there to the house of his father-in-law, Mr. Tohn B. Carson, the family took to a country house a considerable dis tance from the town a little dog of Mrs. Medill's, thinking that its bark ing might disturb the invalid. The dog was only once brought back and then in a buggy and only for a few short hours, but on the day of Mr. Medill's death, the family in Quincy were astonished to hear the dog howl ing in front of their door. The door was opened and the dog rushed pell mell into the parlor and scampered up stairs to the sick-room, bolted in through the door and sprang upon the bed. The dying man fondled the dog, but when the family attempted to remove the brute it entrenched Itself underneath the bed, from whence it was taken with great diffi culty by the coachman. Mr. Medill died that night. No. 6. The other day some Wis consin people were astonished to see their dog come into the house with a piece of paper tied to his tail. They paid no further attention to it, ex cept to laugh at his comical appear ance, until he began going around to different members of the family, always tail first, and sticking it at them. This ludicrous action at last made them see there was writing on the paper, which proved to be as follows: "My legs are broken. Please help me." They carefully examined his legs, but found them all right, when somebody recognized the writ ing of a woman who lived half a mile away. They went to her house and found her helpless from a fall which broke her legs. She could not stir nor attract anybody's attention, and she might have starved or frozen to death,-but luckily the dog came in, and crawling to a table she man aged to write the note and fasten it to his tail. Won't Eat Weeds. A very nobby swell from the city was passing a few days in the country, and made himself generally obnoxious by his highfalutin manners. One morning he wanted to go out into a field where a number of cattle were standing areund, but before he started he said to the lady of the house: "Aw, madam, can I gaw out into thfctpahstuah?" "Yes, in course you can; them cattle won't eat weeds n Drummer. GtkUwi of ihe VasU lit. John B, XleHasto, is hla now ly published work, a "History of the Poopio of tho United States from th Revolution to tho Civil War," says thai "A Philadelphia gentleman of the lasi century, If he were a gentleman oi fashion or means, wore a three-cornered cocked hat heavily laced. His hair was done up in a cue, and its natural shade concealed by a profusion of pow der. His coat was light-colored, with diminutive cape, marvellously long back, and silver buttons engraved with the letters of his name. His small clothes came scarcely to his knees : his long stockings were striped, his shoes pointed and adorned with huge-buckles; his vest had flap pockets, his cuffs were loaded with lead. When he bow ed to the damsels that passed him, he took half the sidewalk as he flourished his cane and scraped his foot." The historian proceeds to convince us that the dress of the lady, as she gravely re turned his salutation and curtesied nearly to the earth, would seem no less strange to us. "Those were the days of gorgeous brocades and taffetas lux uriantly displayed over cumbrous hoops, which, flattened before and be hind, stood out for two feet on each side ; of tower-built hats, adorned with tall feathers ; of calash and muskmelon bonnets, of high wooden heels fanci fully cut, of gowns without fronts, of fine satin petticoats, and of implanted teeth." It appears that in 1784 this curious custom of transferring teeth from one woman's jaw to another's had been lately introduced in Philadel phia. In an advertisement yet extant, ono La Mayeur announces to his fair but presumably mature patrons that his business is to transplant teeth, and that he has within the six months just preceding successfully transplanted 123 ; and he asuires those having front teeth for sale that he will give two guineas for every sound one brought to him. In the city of Philadelphia the drear iness of winter evenings was relieved by assemblies and plays. "The assem blies were of fortnightly occurrence and very select. The price of a season t.iPkfit TV-IS thrPft pon3 fifteen. oKil lings." Married women and refined men of the world seem to have enjoyed complete ascendancy, for "it was thought highly improper that diverse ments of this kind should be attended by young men under twenty or by young women under eighteen. Eight een was then for women the marriage able age. Nor did such damsels as found admittance reap any benefit from beauty, from wit, or from the posses sion of any of those charms now so highly prized. The plainest and fair est were treated alike. For partners were chosen by lot, and remained partners throughout the evening. They danced, walked, and flirted with no one else, and when the dancing was over partook together of rusks and tea." On the following evening the young man went to sup with the parents of the young woman who had fallen to his lot at the assembly, an event which was made the occasion of a great dis play of plate, of china, and of cere mony. The Drinks of all Nations. "Drinks of All Nations" was the subject of one of President Cotten'a lectures before the Trenor Hall tern- perance meeting in New York. "Brit ons," he said, "spend annually 140,-! 000,000 in drink, an average of $19 each. This does not include the sum paid for imported Prench wines. I have learned that America is now ex porting large quantities of whisky to, England. If. so, God help England. In Russia, the common people drink' enormous quantities of strong beer.; The nobility consume a great amount of brandy. The government has re-' cently appointed a commissioner to de-j vise a scheme of national reformation., But one dram shop is to be allowed ini each village, and where two towns are in close proximity one shop must doj for both. At present, 8,000,000 gal-j Ions of wine and brandy are annually consumed in Russia. Hollander drink gin and beer. Germans use beer and wine as beverages. In 1878. official reports show that there were, 11,800 breweries in the German speak ing countries, turning out 846,000,000 imperial gallons of beer. In Copen hagen the authorities have decided to reduce the 1,350 beer shops to eight. No pretty barmaids are to be allowed to serve liquor, and the drunken man must be carried home in a cab at the expense of the last man who sold him beer. The Turks are the only temper ate race of all civilized nations. No good Mohammedan touches distilled or malt liquors." on In the Khoyra district, India, which comprises a considerable portion of the Sunderbunds, more than fifty people timber cutting and collecting in the jungle were killed by tigers during fh lost nffinial rnar AMUSEMENTS.
