The mysterious end of the daughter
o Aaron Burr is once more the sul
ject of wonder, an old sailor named
Benjamin F. Burdick, who died re
cently in a poorhouse in Hichigan,
having said on his death-b ?d that he was
one of the piratical crew that captured
axessel named the Patriot, and par
ticipated in the murder of Theodosia
Allston at sea; indeed, he declared
that it fell to his lot to pull the plank
from under her. She came forth ar
rayed in white, hold'ng a Bible ia one
hand, and with heroic mien took her
place on the slender instrument of
dea;h, and without a shudder Gr quiver
of a muscle wa3 ,x ..capitated into the
waves. The noble, unblanched face,
erect and airy form, he said, had
haunted him all Iiis subsequent life.
Bravo Women.
A life-saving crew off the coast of
Wales recently had their boa. smashed
by being dashed against the bark they
went out to rescue. The coxswain
succeeded in gaining the shore, and
turning saw two men struggling in the
surf." "He implored three soldiers stand
ing.by fej help the men. They gave no
assistance and 1 e cried to them : "Save
the rifen ;"or shame ! Don't let the
men drown before your eyes." But
two bravo women rushed forward
the daughters of Mr. Ace, the lighthouse-keeper.
"Come back I Come
-jack ! You'll lose jour lives 1" shouted
Ace. "I'll lose my life before
I'll let these men drown," was
Maggie's answer; and tearing off
their shawls the women knotted
them together, and wading into the
furious surf until the sweil of the
surges sometimes rose to the height of
their armpits, and one holding bravely
to the other to support themselves
against the tearing recoil of the sweep
ing wat r, they threw the end of their
shawls toward the outstretched arms
of the perishing men and dragged them
both on to th rocks. The men saved
were about three yards from shore.
The soldiers threw something into the
water resembling a clothesline, but
thtydid not go near enough to allow
the line to rea?h the men. Military

How Judge Davis Won a Race.
A correspondent ssnds the New
Yore Evening Post the following story:
"The genial old senator ( David Davis)
who is now enjoying his honeymoon
takes the jokes of his friends in such
good humor that he will excuse me for
tolling a story that I heard narrated of
him in Washington. It goes that
while he was dining one day at
"Worinley's with some friends, among
whom was Mr. Evarts, the conversa
tion drifted to athletic sports and
foot-races. Mr. Evarts, with a view
to one of his sarcastic jests, turted to
the great 'trunk alongside of him, from
which he himself may be supposed to
have been whittled off as a sliver, and
suggested that suh sports were some
thing entirely out of his line. '"Well
Evarts,' replied Judge Davis, perhaps
you think I can't run? Now, look
here, r 11 1 o. you a Gase of wine I can
b?at you in a hundred yards if you
will let me choose my ground and will
give me five yards start. I'm heavy you
know, and I want solid footing.' Mr.
Evarts was satisfied that he had a
dead sure thing,' and as the evening
hud advanced the dign:fid company
resolved to uibend itself still further
for thespoi t. Come on, then,' shouted
the senator, 'follow me!' So away
they went, down to a narrow alley
that runs between Twelftn and Thir
teenth streets. Marching into it for
the distance of five yards, while his
artnr touched the brickwork on each
side, he quietly observed: 'Now

A LoYdy Little Seed.
A friend has kindly sent to us what
appears to be a seed of some kind, and
which possesses characteristics of a pe
culiar interesting nature.1 This seed held
in the hand or placed on a book or table
appears to be endowed with life, and at
once proceeds to move about, tumble
over, and jump from one side to the
other. Held between the fingers, a
distinct, intermitting throb is felt
proceeding from the interior; and when
placed close to the ear, this throb or
knocking becomes audible, and as many
as sixty distinct knooks have been heard
in forty seconds. Tiie force of these
mysterious blows- given in the interior
is surprising; they jar the whole struct
ure of the seed and knock it about in
a lively way when placed in a free
position. The development of a pro
portional force inside of Barnum's ele
phant Jumbo would render it. unsafe
for any one to occupy a position very
near him. The s'ze of the se3d is that of
a fourth part of a pea divided longitud
inally, and it almost ejcactly resembles
sucha fragment of a dried pea.
The donor of the seed states that it
came from Mexico, and is called the
Mexican bean. Doubtless others have
seen this curious seed and can explain
the causes of its strange antics, but we
cannot. The force is not dependent
upon heat or its absence, for it moves
with eqiud facility upon the surface of
dry ice and a warm plate; neither has
the presence of moisture anything to
do with it, and light or darkness is not
a disturbing agent. Boston Journal

Terrible stories aro told by a corre-

Near Macon, Mis-, is a remarkaVe
pigeon roost. It embraces an area of
forty acres, in a vaHey s.vr rounded by
precipitous hills. A creek spreads
over t, covering most of the surface
with water from one to five feet deep.
There is all over it a thick growth of
cane, vines, bushes and saplings, which,
with the quicksands, muck and water,
constitute it an absolutely impenetra
ble morass. It is a wonderful instinct
that prompted the I irds to select this,
the most secure and safest of all placts
in the whole region, for their lodging

pigeons come in from all quarters in
immense numbers, darkening the
heavens and producing a roaring noise
that can be heard two or three miles.
Comptroller Knox says that the pass
age of the act to redu 'e internal reve

state banks and the private bankers
from a tax on the average of about
1,000,000 a month. The amount of
tax collected from the national banks
on capital and deposits during the last
fiscal year was $5,959,702, of which
$437,774 only was upon capital, the re
mainder being upon deposits. The
tax upon state banks and private
bankers was $5,249,172, of which a
little more than one-fifth was upon
capital. The total tax collected upon
deposits and capital upon all classes of
banks during the last fiscal year was
$11,208,876. The amount annually
collected from the two-cent check
stamp is about $2,500,000, and the act
repealing the use of these stamps takes
effect on July 1, 1883.
The Kev. Dr. Morgan Dix, of New

"What industrial education 'doe is
shown by its effects on the industry
of lawmaking in the island of Burano,
near Venice. In the sixteenth and
seventeenth centuries ib Was cele
brated as a seat for lace man
ufacture, but it had lost all its
prestige and the industry was nearly
extinct in 1860. In recent years, how
ever, by the exertions of philanthro
pists and connoisseurs of art, a self 01
of laceraakers was established there,
and the number grew from eight, in
1872, to upward of 320 in 1881. The
same vigor and evidence of financial
advantage frcm in truction in the art
of designing as app'ied to lacHmaking
are noticed at Bruges, where the man

sixteenth century. There lacemaking
is tau-zht in the convent and parish

It was Gail Hamilton, we believe,
who devoted a whole book to demon
strate the total depravity and useless
ness of small boys, ancl particularly
those who are blessed with older sis
ters; and humorists and satirists have
made the urchin of the family the sub
ject of unlimited and inexhaustible
ridicule and amusement. It is there
fore with joy that younger brothers
throughout the world will welcome an
announcement of their ability and
value, as illustrated by an incident
which recently occurred at Williams
port, Penn. A young lady living in
that town was in the habit of carrying
pins in her mouth, as girls always do,
and swallowed one of them, which
lodged crosswise in her throat. After
the physicians had given up the case as
hopeless, the young lady's little brother
persuaded her to swallow a button, to
which was attached a string. "When
the button was shallowed, the boy
jerked the string and dislodged the pin.
The young woman's throat was some
what torn, but not seriously injured.

Mr. Christie Palmerston, a government
surveyor, Iras just opened up the table
lands between Herberton and the
Queensland coast. He reports that this
highly-favored region possesses a flora
of incredible luxuriance, broad sheets
of water falling over high basaltic
precipice?, and the richest soil in
Australia, and is inhabited by tribe j
exhibiting characteristics whidi dis
tinguish them from the other natives
of Queensland. Some of them are said
to reside in s Tub so dense that they
have never seen open country. They

wooden swords reso ubling in slmpe the
weapons which the Dyaks of Borneo
carry in their heal-hunting expedi
tions. The Amvrkaji Culticator has a per
tinent editorial paragraph on the use
of high-sounding scientific terms in the
reports made for the inforn.a:im of
farmers by the agricultural depart
ment at Washington. " rici mtific men,"
it says, "frequently complain of a lack
of support from the agricultural classes.
The farmers appreciate practical in
formation and are willing to pay for
value received. Many scientists utterly
fail in tl:eir ab lity to impart to the
av rage reader tho res-ills ot their in
vestigations, however vain iblefrom the
laboratory standpoint. Thus the last
report of the department of agricul
ture contains this profound paragraph
in its discussion of the disea es of do
mestic animals: 'It ha I long be.-n
noticed th it the microphyte found in
infusions of old hay (Bacillus subtilis)
was practically ind stingui liable from
the gum of m ilignant anthrax (Bacil
lus anthracis) as seen under the micro
scope. The most appreciable distinc
tion was that the rWdllus subtilis of
old hay could be inoculated on the ani
mal system without any evil result,
while inoculation with the Bacillus
anthracis produoed the deadly malig
nant anthrax or malignant pustule.
And yet the government is asked to
print and distribute 800,000 copies of
such matter for the benefit of the
farming classes! "What advice has the
department, for the farmer who cannot
tell the difference between Bacillus
subtilis and Bacillus anthracis? Shall
he buy a microscope or a Latin dic
tionary?" Strange Stones.
In the s.md of the Ergent moun
tains at Sarepta, Asiatic Bussia, are
found some curious stones. They have
round, cylindrical shaped forms and
range in size from lumps smaller than
walnuts to masses of mora than four
teen inches in length and from two to
seven inches in thickness. Each of the
cylindrical stones which are often
forked and root-like in appearance is
found to contain a brown kernel with
a white spot in the center. These sin
gular formations have perplexed many
persons, including Alexander Hum
boldt, who, while declaring the stones
to be of recent date, could not explain
their origin. Alexander Becker now
believes that he can with certainty as
sert that they have been produced
around the ro )ts of plants containing
milky juice. Several such plants grow
abundantly in the white sand. The
long roots are lacerated by insects, and
the milky fluid flows continually from
the wounds, sticking the chalky sand
firmly around the roots. In time the
roots die and disappear, leaving, in
the r places white often hollow ker
nels, together with the djrcwa color of
the root-cortex. The round and target
shaped stones only few of which have
a brown kernel may have formed
where the miiky fluid ran away into
the sand.
