FELINE LEVITATION. J The Simple Truth About the Puzzling Con duct of Some Brooklyn Cats. The rear yards in the neighbor hood of Ninth 6treet and Sixth ave nue, Brooklyn, aro a favorito resort for an astonishing number of cats. It is a residence locality, and so quiet that the cats have no difficulty in hearing themselves and one another when they lift up their voicee. The fences aro usually picketed with cats, and nobody paid much attention to them until a doctor looking out of his rear office window the other day saw a thing that surprised him. A well behaved tabby was picking her way daintily along the fejee of tho adjoining yard when she sudden ly floated upward with all four legs extended horizontally. She rose per hajw a yard or a little more, came to a stop, and then fell out of sight on the farther side of the fence. The doctor had been casually observing cats whenever ho glanced out of the window, but he never before had seen a cat levitate just as this one had. He put it down as a manifesta tion of feline eccentricity and thought no more about it until, glancing out of the window a few minutes later, he saw a cut of another color poised in tho air with outstretched legs di rectly over the spot from which the other cat lied ascended. His eye had canglit the cat at tho moment of equipoise, and he saw her descend out of sight as did the first cat. The doctor was interested. The usual processions of cats were mov ing along the fences, and he remained at tho window. As often as a cat came to the spot to which his atten tion was directed the animal arose from all fours simultaneously, as each of the others had done, and the doo tor abandoned his hastily formed the ory of individual feline eccentricity. He saw cat after cat perform this lev itation act, some falling on one side of tho fence and 301110 on the other, . and then ho put on his hat and start ed out to investigate. Thero really was no mystery about it. Mr. Harry Pierce lives next to tho doctor, and when he is not buy ing goods in Europe or selling them in America ho becomes an amateur electrician for recreation only. He has an arrangement of wires leading to tho backyaiS fence, ?*nd when he wants to turn on the fountain of cats I he presses tho button.?New York Sun. A Lubricating Composition. A new process has been patented for making a lubricating composi tion. This substance is designed few use with bearings, commutator brushes, projectile covers, ete., and is prepared by mixing plumbago in excess with wood or other vegetable fiber. Tho materials are mixed with water and then molded under pres sure. The special point of the com position is that the mold is arranged so that the-water in escaping tends to set the fibers on end with regard to the bearing surface. After being molded the articla, is dried and im pregnated with linseed oil, and the oil is finally hardened in by the ap plication of heat.?New York Tele gram. Judging bj- Appearances. Brierton railway station was the scene of busy activity. The train waa all ready to start. The bag gagemaster was busy with his checks, the men were hurrying to and fro with chests and valises, packages and trunks. Men, women and children were rushing for the cars, hastily securing seats, while tho locomotive snorted and puffed, says the Louisville Home and Farm. A man, carelessly dressed, was standing on the platform of tho de pot. He was looking around him and seemingly paid little attention to what was passing. It was easy to see that he was lamo, and at a hasty glance one might have sup posed that he was a man neither of wealth nor influence. The conductor gave him a con temptuous look, and slapping him familiarly on the shoulder, cried out: "Hello, Limpy, better get aboard or the cars will leare you behind. "Time enough, I reckon," re plied the individual, and he resumed his seemingly listless air. "All aboard!" cried the conductor. "Get on, Limpy," said be, passing tho carelessly-dressed man. The layie man made no reply. Just as tho train was slowly moving away the lamo man stepped upon the platform of tho last car, walked quietly in, and took a seat. Tho train had gone a few miles when I lie conductor- appeared at tho door of the car whero our friend was sit ting. Passing along he soon dis covered the stranger whom ho had scon at tho station. "Your ticket, quick!" "I don't pay," replied the lame man, quietly. "Don't pay?" "No, sir." "We'll seo about that. I shall put you off at tho next station, and he seized a valise that was over the head of our friend. "Bettor not be so rough, young man," replied the stranger. The couductor released the carpet bag for a moment, and seeing that ho could do no more then, passed on to collect the fare from the other passengers. As ho stopped at a seat a few paces away, a gentleman who had heard the conversation just men tioned, lookod up to tho conductor und asked: "Do you know whom you were speaking to now?" "No, sir." "That is Peter Wharburton, the presidont of the road." "Are you sure?" asked the con ductor, trj ing to conceal his agita tion. "1 know him." The color rose a little in the young man's face, but with a strong effort he controlled himself and went on collecting fares as usual. Meanwhile Mr. Wharburton sat quietly in his seat. None of those near him could unravel the expres sion of his face or toll what the next movement in the scene would be. And lie?what thought he? He had been rudely treated, bo had been unkindly taunted with tho in firmity which, perhaps, bad come through no fault of bis. lie could revenge himself if bo choose, lie could toll the directors the simple truth and tho young man would be deprived of his place in short order. Should he do it? Presently the conductor camo back. With steady energy he walk ed up to Mr. Wharburton's side; then taking his book from his pucket the money and tickets ho had col lected he laid them in Mr. Whar burton's hand. "I resign my place, sir," ho said. The President looked over the money and tickets for a moment, then, motioning him to a vacant seat, said: '?Sit down, sir; I would like to talk to you." As tho young man sat down the President turned to him a face in which there was no angry feeling and spoke to him in an undertone: "My young friend, I have no re vengeful feeling to gratify in this matter; but you have been impru dent. Your manner, had it been thus to a stranger, would have been injurious to the company. I might tell the directors of this, but I will not; but in future remember to be polite to all you meet. You cannot judge a man by the coat he wears, and even the poorest should be treated with civility. Take np your book, sir. I shall tell no one of what has happened. Your situa tion is continued. Good morning. Jno. Bailey, a Tennessee farmer in bard luck, has just been made happy by the receipt of $685 from F. K. Waldron, of Beading, Pa , being in full payment with 6 per cent, inter est for a horse which Wtldttn, then a soldier, appropriated from Bailey s stable in 1864.

Try tho following prescription; taken hourly each day, it will make you a sound, sensible, lovable per son: Don't worry. Don't hurry. "Two swift arrives as tardily as too slow." Sleep and rest abundantly. Spend less nervous energy each day than you make. Be cheerful. "A light heart lives long." Think only healthful thoughts. "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." "Seek peace and pursue it." "Work like a man, but don't bo worked to death." Avoid passion and excitement. A moment's anger may be fatal. Associate with healthy people. Health is contagious as well as dis ease. Don't carry tho whole world on your shoulders, far less the universe. Never despair. '?Lost hope is a fatal disease." Don't bo mean, near, close, penu rious. There arc other people in the World besides you. Don't catch the know-all disease; it is worse than tho cholera. Wanted to he a Hoy A train. The following has a true ring: "I'd like to be a boy again, without a woo or care, with freckles scat tered on my face, aud bay seed in my hair; I'd like to rise at 4 o'clock and do a hundred chores, and saw the wood and feed tho hogs and lock the stable doors; and herd the hens and watch the bees and take the mules to drink, and teach the turk eys how to swim so that they wouldn t sink; and milk about one hundred cows and bring in wood to burn, and stand out in tho sun all day and churn and churn; and wear brother's cast-off* clothes and walk four miles to school, and get a lick ing every day for breaking 6ome old rule, and then get home again at night and do the chores once more, and milk the cows and feed the hogs and curry mules galore; and then crawl wearily up stairs to seek my little bed and hear dad say: 'That worthless boy! He isn't worth his bread! I d like to be a boy again, a boy has so much fun; his life is just a round of mirth from rise to set of suu; I guess there's nothing pleasanter than closing stable doors and herding hens and chasing bees and doing evening chores." What Old Maid* Are. A recent writer thus gracefully defines maiden ladies: "The unde livered package at the express of fice. They were originally intend ed for somebody; bnt the parties to whom they were addressed have never appeared, or else they had the wrong address, or the ad dress somehow got oblit erated. _ Often very valaable par cels, which would have given great ioy if they had been delivered to consignee. An Incident Recalled. Mr. Frank English, wife and two childron, of Bloomington, Ills., ar rived in Hinton Friday eveniBgb**" and spent several days at Mr. Jake A. Rifle 8. Mrs. English is a daugh ter of the late David M. Riffe and is I well known in this community. Mrs. English's present visit recalls an in cident of her last visit to this connty. Mrs. English'8 mother was nponher death-bod, in February, 1891, and the absent daughter made a hurried trip from Bloomington hero to see her. The train upon which she came was to stop at Riffe's Switch, which was within a stone's throw of tho then residence of Mrs. English's brother, J. A. Riffe, and passed that point early in tho night. When tho train arrived friends wore at the switch to receive Mrs. English, but L the train did not stop. One mile ' mile further on tho train stopped and put Mrs. English off. Tho night was very dark, and Mrs. English supposing that she was near her brother's house began to look about, but having come out of a well light ed car, it was impossible to soo any thing in the extreme darkness. She had a young baby and the night was cold and damp. She became somewhat alarmed at her predica ment, and grave fears for tho infant in her arms, took possession of her. However, she was of a brave dispo sition and knew that it would not do to become frightened. She there fore remained, as calmly as her un pleasant plight would permit, near the railroad track. After a whilo the intense darkness was relieved, by having remained in it, and she began to look about for shelter. Sho climbed the bank, with valise and baby, and discovered that she was near a house and she made her way to it and discovered that it was a school-house. Fortunately it was unlocked and school having been in session that day, a little fire still remained in the stove and tho room r was warm. Having thus found comfortable shelter, Mrs. English contented herself to slay there lor the night. Her little one slept sweetly and was comfortable. As the night waned tho mGon came up and she being acquainted with tho countrj', discovered that sho was about a mile and a half from hor father's residenco. Her first idea was to undertake tho trip home with her baby in her arms, but finally she came to the conclusion that as sho was not strong enough to carry the babe, it would not bo prudent to do so and ^she wrapped tho little one up nicely and left it upon one of tho benches in tho warm school-house, and on foot sho made her way through the mud and water to her father's house. Sho arroused tho family and her brother caught up a horse and buggy and together they went back to the school house and got tho littlo ono, who had evidently slept sweetly during its mother's absence, and Mrs. English's baggage, and she was soon safely landed, baby, bag gage and all, at her father's homo. 1 his incident goes to show a bra very and presence of mind in the lady, which many women and somo men, would not have shown under similar circumstances.?llinton In dependent Herald. Burned With Fire From IleaTPn. Among the relics at tho capitol is an old book in the office of the Sec retary of Stato. It contains the original laws framed by tho Legislature in 1786, when it was in session at .Louisville, then the capital of Georgia. The pages from 002 to C22 have been cut from the book, and in tho vacant place a resolution ordering them removed is pasted. These missing pages were the records of 4bo acts of the House and Senate in the famous Yazoo fraud matter, and when tbey were thrown out they were burned with fire drawn down from heaven thro' a sun glass by Governor Jackson.
