An Indian Dauco.
Referring to the shooting of cattle by
the Indians at Standing Rock Agency,
Dakota, Harper's Weekly says: The animals
belonging to the government are
corralled and then shot down by a selected
party, after which there is an exciting
rush for the tongues of the slaughtered
beasts, each man being allowed to take
as many as he can cut out and carry
away. This takes place every ten days,
ana is renamed as line spun. i>ui me
meiry - making ? the "high time," as
they call it ? comes afterward. The
Indians assemble in a log-house, and
hold a general jollification meeting. The;
chief feature of the entertainment is the t
dance. Onlv the younger men take an
active part in this, the older ones sitting
in a circle about them and enjoying '
the fun. The women are not admitted.
The dancers are dressed?so far as they
are dressed at all?iu tue most fantastic
manner, and each one carries in his hand
his pipe or tomahawk. They boh up
and down, leap, run and skip, and cut up 1
all manner of queer antics. At times they
break out into sharp discordant barkings,
which are answered by veins and grunts
from those who look on. The orchestra
sits in one corner, and furnishes its share j
of the noise.bv thumping incessantly on
a big drum. This is the only instrument j
used, but our artist is inclined to think
that no others are necessary. During the
dance the stewed tongue is served out
from buckets, and it may be that sonicthing
a little stronger also finds its way
to the months of the merry-makers. The
snort, beginning in the afternoon, lasts
nil night.
A Novel Jail.
In the primitive days of Missouri, the.
only buildings at Mt. Sterling, the county- ,
seat of Gasconade, were a log store and '
a log courthouse with one room. Pur-!
ingcourt week, accommodations for man \
and beast were found at Aunt Beckie's, j
in whose house of three rooms, a quar- !
ter of a mile from the courthouse, sixty (
or seventy persons would lodge anilj
Her bill of fare included coffee sweet-1
ened with molasses, biscuits made from |
coarse, dark flour, and baked until as j
hard as billiard-balls, bacon, venison and !
wild turkev. Those whose teeth could J
not crack the biscuits were supplied with
" corn-dodgers."
# The penalties imposed for crime were I
light, except in the case of horse-stealing,!
which, being the greatest of crimes, was i
punished by forty lashes on the bare i
On one occasion, a man was convicted I
for some slight offence. The judge sen- j
tertced him to pay a line of five dollars
and imprisonment in the county jail for j
two hours.
The man at once paid the fine, but. |
as there was no county jail, the sheriff i
was at a loss how to execute the rest
of the sentence. His invention, however,
found out a method. Seeing an old crate,
in which crockery had been brought |
from St. Louis, lie placed it in front of i
the courthouse. Then making the cul- j
prit get under it, he summoned a posse j
of four fat men to sit upon it, and in ;
this style carried out the sentence.
The "bystanders were much amused,
and so quizzed the poor prisoner that,
as soon as he was released, he tied from
the county.
Wrinkles are as inevitable as old age. I
' They cannot be wiped ont. In man they
are often honorable evidence of hard j
mental labor; in women they are usually
the evidence of coming a^e, although
(rare and suffering have much to do with
them. Sometime? fair foreheads sire
prematurely wrinkled fj;oni a nervous
habit of raising the eyebrows, and from
. a too great and a too constant pressure
of the pillow on one or both sides of the
head while sleeping. And just here comes
a fact worth remembering. If the fore0
. head has escaped wrinkles, crow's feet
are prematurely seen about the eyes. We
all see these crow's feet in men and
women whose brows are smooth and
young-looking. They are the results of
sleeping on the right and left sides. The j
pressure upon the temple and cheeks
leaves wrinkles at the corners and under-j
neath the eyes, which disappear in a few
hours, but finally become* so fixed that .
neither hours nor ablutions will abate
them. If girl children were compelled
to sleep on theft backs, and continued
the habit when they reached woman.hood
and afterward, they would arrive
at middle life without crow's feet gath- j
ering in the neighborhood of the eyes, I
and in most cases their foreheads would j
be free from even shallow furrows.

Coffee as an Invigorator.
A correspondent of the London I.ancct,
who owns a water-power mi 11, says: 441
am frequently compelled, during this season
of the year, to have men working in
water, even in frosty weather. I find the
following allowance gives great satisfaction
to the men, and we never have a
case of cold or injury to them in any way:
Kettle of coffee, made with half sweet
milk, half water, three or four eggs,
whipped, poured into it when off the
boil; hot toasted bread with plenty of
butter the finest quality. Serve up
this e^?1 two and a half hours. The I
expense is much loss than the usual
amount of whisky, and the men work far
better, ancl if cafe is taken to hav the
milk (cream is hotter), bread and batter
of the fment quality, the men are del limited
with it. 1 am persuaded it would* be
worth while to try this allowance instead
of grog. Furnishing the men with grog
gives the men the notion that it is good
for them and perpetuates the belief in
stimulants among workmen.
Cutting Off the Quarrel.
Of the late Louis A. (iodev, who wan a
ready-witted man, Colonel Forney relates
the following:
On one occasion, at an evening entertainment
at GodeyV house, two angry
disputants were facing each other, almost
ready to resort to blows, when
Godey picked up a huge carving-knife
ffom the simper table and handed it to
the most violent of the two. The latter
unconsciously received it, at.the same
time demanding of (iodev, '* What do
you mean by this, sir?'1
" I mean," said the jolly editor of the
Lady's Booh?" I mean that you ahould
cut off .the quarrel right here."
The general expression of merriment
made the controversy so ridiculous tnat
it was stopped at once, the excited adversaries
tnemse 1 ves joining in the laugh,
as they shook hands and begged pardon
of the host.?Harper's "'Drawer.''''
' The Empress of Austria was filled
with wonder on meeting Mr. Kavanagh,
M. P. for county of Carlow, Ireland,
with the Kildare hounds. lie was born
without legs or arms. In place of legs he
has six inches of muscular thigh stumps,
on-'; being about an inch shorter tlian its
el.ow; while his arms are dwarfed to
perhaps four inches of the upper portion
of these members, and are unfurnished
with any termination apnroaclung to
hands. Yet he is a beautiful caligraphist,
a dashing huntsman, and artistic
draughtsman, an unerring shot, an exfert
yachtsman, and drives four-in-hand,
n writing he holds the pen or pencil in
his mouth and guides its course by the
arm stumps, which are sufficiently long
ts* meet across the chest. When hunting
he sits in a kind of saddle basket, and
his reins are managed with surprising
expertness and ease.
The Lancaster (Kv.) Visitor says: "Mr'.
Sally Davis, a venerable woman over sevtnty
yeare of age, is (he possessor of a suit of hair,
that might awaken envy in the breast of
many a fair maiden cf "sweet sixt/ei."
Soft and brown and silky, with no suspicion
of silver among the glistening threads, it
falls in luxuriant profosion far below her
waist, a marvel to all beholders."
Time Runs On.
We see the blossoms brightly glow,
We listen to the brooklet's flow,
We hear the guy bird's merry call,
We note the blue sky over all;
Lo ! while we say " The world is sweet,"
The white trost chills our waiting lect.
The babe, now cradled in our arms,
To-morrow wakes to girlhood's charms;
Anou, ii cuptive maiden stands,
A willing captive in love's bands;
Ere long, a world-worn train await
Their summons through death's somber gate.
From flower to linit is but a day;
r'roin youth to age a swilt, briet way;
Vet, il we garner last and well.
The ripening harvest who can tell ?
For time runs on; yet every hour
Is rich with some God-given power.
All up and down the world we see
lie's royal gilts are scattered free;
!lie patient, hand luir. but to bind
The bounteous sheaves, each year to And
north's green and gold will turn to wheat;
.Though time runs 011, the world is sweet.
We may not find the autumn way
Has just the glory <>! the May,
And silver head and waning sight
May leel " life's summer was so bright;"
And yet a chastened beauty glows
Where full rich lives grow near their close.
The world is sweet, yet time runs on;
And when our songs, our flowers are gone.
Lo ! others will the sickle wield
AdowH the same bright liarvcst-lleld;
And others watch, on sunny eves.
The reapers bringing home their sheaves.
1 was stationed at Agra during the
Cabul disaster in 1811, one of a mere Handful
of British troops, left in charge of the
wives, sisters and daughters of the actors
in that unhappy expedition. And a
weary, heart-breaking time it was. The
lieutenant-governor, who had prayed
and besought the Calcutta authorities
not to risk the adventure, had the worst
forebodings for its fate; and although he
did all an able, kindly and well-mannered
man could do to maintain the spirits of
the circle, those who knew him could
read too well what his fears were. Words
20uld not describe?indeed it is painlul
for me even now to recall?the dreary
wretchedness of that fatal month, during
which no tidings c.^hie of the devoted
army. Evening after evening saw the
roads crowded by anxious women, sitting
there for hours, that they might hear
the first news of those who were dear to
them, and evening after evening saw
them return in despair. And then, at
last, the news came that the sole survivor
had staggered, half alive, back to
his countrymen with the tidings of the
great disaster, the wail that ascended
from those heart-broken creatures I shall
never, while I live, forget.
ml ,._.l i ?_ ?
a nun? 11:111 u^fii it uij^unii in ulic \jx mo
native regiments, an old acquaintance of
mine, of the name of Donnelly?Jerry
Donnelly, as he was called by every one.
He was careful to explain to all his
friends that his name was Jerome, and
not Jeremiah, although why he so unduly
preferred the saint to the prophet. 1
never understood. Jeurv Donnelly, however,
he was, and as strange and eccentric
a creature as ever breathed.
He was a very good-looking fellow
and a first-rate officer, but a careless, rollicking,
half-insane .mad ap of a man,
with an amazing flow of spirits, little
education or culture, a great?almost
miraculous?talent for languages, with a
soft heart and easy temper. It was impossible
to make him angry; and in all
circumstances, however unpleasant, he
maintained a placid serenity, which
seemed to imply that he was on intimate
terms with fortune and knew the
very worst that she could do.
Among the other tricks which the
fickle goddess had played him was that
she had married him. Why lie ever
married as he did no one could imagine.
The lady was ieither handsome, clever
nor rich. She was simply passable as
to looks, with the livelirttess of good
health and youth?a quality not inapt
to develop itself in vivacity of temper
when those other attributes disappear.

li:icl asked her the momentous question,
and been favorably answered.
A most uncomfortable couple were
they. .Jerry, from the very first, neglected
her?not intentionally, I believe, but
simply because for the moment lie forgot
her existence. It never seemed to
him necessary to alter his former bachelor
round in any respect; and, as the
lady had no notion of being neglectcd,
she resented the indifference, and chalked
out a line for herself. They never quarreled
outwardly, but were hardly ever
So stood the domestic circle, if such
it could be called, of Captain Donnelly,
when he was ordered on General Elphinstone's
expedition. His wife would fain
have remained at'.Calcutta, but, as all
the wives were going to Algra, she for
very shame was obliged to go there also.
On "the first rumors of the disaster she
was very indifferent?said she was sure
Jerry would turn up at the most inconvenient
time; and if he was happy, she
was. When, however, the tidings were
confirmed, and it was certain that Jerry
had perished with his comrades, a great
change came over her. She shut "herself
up for months, saw no one and went
nowhere. And when, at the end of a
year, she began once more to look at the
world, she was a grave, thoughtful, softened
woman. Sh<5 went up to Calcutta
after that, and I never saw her again
until I came home on a furlough in
18-17. She was then living in a pretty
place in Somersetshire, and was known
as Mrs. Courtnay, of Branley Hall.
I met her accidentally, but she was
very glad to see me, and Explained to
me wliat I had not heard, that when
she arrived at Calcutta she found that
poor .Jerry had, four months before ho
a rrv.i cticcppilpd tn tliix nlape nf Rr:m.
icy Haii by the death of a distant relative.
He had previously made a will,
leaving her all his worluly goods, then
slender enough, so that in the end this
tine estate had come to her, and a new
name with it. She asked me come
down and see her, which I did, and
learned more of the history.
Sorrow and prosperity greatly changed
her for the better. Even her looks had
improved, and she was a pleasant,
thoughtful, agreeable woman. She had
remained four years in Calcutta before
she returned, aiid had at onee assumed
the name of Courtnay, which was one
of the conditions on which the bequest
was made.
"You know. Colonel Hastings, I could
not have lost the estate, for what would
poor Jerry have said when he came
I thought the woman's head must have
been affected by her troubles, and said
" I see you think me deranged, but I
knew.he wasaliv?all the time."
"Why,'what could have induced you
to think so?"
"I knew him. Colonel Hastings. It
was in your bungalow at Calcutta,
about, two years after I had gone back.
Late in the evening I heard a footstep
outside which stramrelv affected me. I
was lying half asleep, and, starting up
in a drowsy state, I heard a voice at
the veranda, and, a* I thought, inquiring
of my stupid old servant whether I
lived there. The steps then turned
away. I darted to the casement, and although
the figure was clad in the most
extraordinary compound of European
and Asiatic garments, I am sure it was
Jerry. I darted down stairs and rushed
out, but he had disappeared. The servant
said he was a bad fakir and wished
to get in the bungalow, but he could or
would tell me nothing of what he had
said. But I am quite sure it was Jerry.
So I am quite certain he will come
back?but you remember lie neveij was
punctual,'1 she added, with a faint smile.
I did not say if Jerry was alive she
must have heard of him some other way;
but I took leave of her and shortly afterward
returned to-India.
In 18331 was appointed to an embassy
to Nepaul, a very "striking country, gov*
erned by a powerful, warlike race. J?hfirst
minister or vizier of the country met
us, as in the Xenaulcze fashion, outside of
the capital, ana we had a very courteous
and gratifying reception. He was a tall,
handsome man, with a flowing, black
beard, and conversed with me in Perc-ion
nrliich T cmnlro fliifinHv. After mir
interview, one of the attendants informed
me the vizer wished to see me alone, and
he accordingly conducted me to an inner
apartment. He ordered the attendant to
withdraw, and then, in tones only too familiar,
he exclaimed:
"Well,Hastings,my boy, how go on
the Plungers?"
It was Jerry Donnelly, by all that was
miraculous. I had observed him staring
earnestly at me during the interview, an
something in his gestures seemed not ui
familiar to me, but his flowing bean
solemn air and Oriental dress so muc
disguised him, that even when I hear
the well-remembered voice coul
scarcely realize his identity.
'"But what on earth are you clom
| here, Jerry?" said I, "why don't yo
j go home to your wife like a Christian?
j " My wife! well, that's the whole a
i fair. You see, she's somebody else
I wife, so I'm better out of the way; ;
j would be a pity that poor Sophie shoul
j commit bigamy."
" I assure you that you are entirel
I mistaken. Mrs. jjonneny is noiinarruj
; "Hasn't she, though," said h<
"Don't I know better? Didn't I g
I back to ray bungalow and find out thr
1 she had married that starched foo
; Courtnay, when she knew I never coul
j endure him!"
To his intense astonishment I told hit
; how the truth was and in turn he r(
i lated to me his own adventures. II
! had been carried into Tartary, and ther
j detained for three years, when lie w.i
allowed to accompany a caravan or bod
of pilgrims to Nepaul. Being by th:i
time a proficient in the language, li
was taken notice of at court, bu
very strictly watched. He effected hi
escape, however, disguised asa.fakii
and made his way to Calcutta, bu
j finding, as he thought, his wife mai
ried again to a man in his old regi
raent, he returned, was taken into favo
and had risen to his present distinctioY
" Well, I always was a blunderin
fool, but I went home with a heart s
ore to Sophie and avowing that I woul
never vex her any more with my vag:i
ries, that when I heard her called Mrs
Courtnay I was turned to stone, an
did not care a rap what became of m<
* J- ? 1-5-1. T _
even to oe mane a vizier, which, i at
sure you, Charlie, is no joke in its way.
44 Well, at all events you must com
home now and enjoy your good foi
i tune."
" I am not sure about that," said h<
i " Recollect, she has grown aceustome
to be mistress, and I have grown ac
customed to be a vizier. She won
like to be contradicted, and it's a thin
I never could bear, and what 1 nev(
I allow on any account. Now, if I wer
home, she would not be mistress, an
as sure as fate she would contradit
i me. Maybe it is better as it is."
Next morning he sent for me agair
i 441 have been thinking," he said, " <
all the strange stories you told me. I ai
; all changed since Ave parted. I hardl
know myseifto be the same man I use
i to be, and am not sure I should tre:
j Sophie well. But ask her to come 01
| here and then she can try. If she like
me in this outlandish place, I will g
home with her; if we quarrel here no or
will be the wiser, and I can continue t
be dead."
" But," said I, " have you no incun
branccs? Perhaps she might object t
the details of vour establishment,

of your Eastern prejudices; let hereon:
' and she will iind nobody to disturb her.
So she did come, ami after living i
Nepaul for two years, brought Jerr
back in triumph to Branley Hall; an
such is the true version of a tale whic
made some noise in the newspapers a fe1
years ago.

" Cetywayo had never seen a revolver

c, lired it at a calabash. The chief
is much surprised at the power of so
jail a weapon. ' How destructive it
ill be,'he said,when it has grown
i and become a mother,' which must
understood as meaning a cannon.
"In Zululand it is considered a great
ivilege to be made a soldier. All the
ns of Cetywayo are made soldiers at
e a?0 of six years or thereabouts, and
the children who - are born in the j
nc year are also made soldiers at the
ne time as the dignity is conferred
on the prince, of whom they are eonnnoraries.
'Wives are very valuable property^
Zululand, partly, of course, for the*
uson that the greatest reward of a

'The lot of a native wife is often a |

the caprice of her husband, she not
freabentlv attemptstto escape.
' The Zulu laws to prevent these espes
are most barbarous. If any
iman runs away, either to Natal or j
y neighboring tribe, G'etywayo orders ,

ifiscates the women, and bestows 1

' They are reported to be ready to'

ihrubs that had concealed him, witli his
evolver already drawn, and instantly
jegan firing. The assassin was respectibly
dressed, and wore a military cap
vith a cockade. He fired at the emperor
within two paces. After the first shot
;he emperor approached his assassin, wjio
ired again and then ran. An officer of
;he gendarmerie, with drawn sword,
pursued the man. Three more men then
oined in the pursuit.
The assassin fired at them, shattering
;he jaw of a detective. Finally a gentlenan
knocked the man down ana held
lim until he was secured by the officers.
Lt is supposed that he took poison before
lis attempt, as he vomited immediately
ifter his 'arrest. It is said that poison
ivns found uner his finger nails. Antilotes
were administered. The Emperor's
issailant gave the name of Skolof. He is
i retired functionary of jthe Ministry of
Finance, and is about thirty years old.
The great throng of people which had
issembled enthusiastically cheered and
congratulated the Empetor, who thanked
;liem for their proofs of fidelity on such a
painful occasion. He said he knew he
liad the support of all respectable people.
He hoped that God would grant that he
might complete his task, which consisted
in promoting the welfare of Russia. The
Emperor, after the foregoing speech,
drove to the palace without ese#rt.
He did not suffer the least ill effect
from the attempt upon his life Afterward
he drove, still without escort, to
the Casan Cathedral, to return thanks
for the preservation of his life. When
receiving the congratulations of the officials
of the empire, at noon, the Czar was
so much overcome by his enthusiastic
reception as to be unable to speak for
some minutes. On recovering from his
emotion he said: "This is the third
time God has saved me."

States Minister to Russia, Mr. Stoughton,
directing him to convey to the Czar
the President's congratulations upon his
marvelous escape. Telegrams of conSratulation
were also received by the
zar from all the European sovereigns
and the Sultan of Turkey.
This attempt to kill the Czar is the
third to which he has been exposed since
1855, when he succeeded to the throne.
The first occurred April 16,1866, when
he was fired at on entering his carriage
at St. Petersburg. 'On this occasion the
pistol was turned by a workman, who
was generously rewarded for the act.
The secon# attempt was madttat Paris,
June 6,1867, by Berezowski, a role, who
fired into the carriage in which the Czar
was seated with his two sons and the
Emperor Napoleon. The imperial party
escaped unhurt, but the horse of one of
the escort was wounded. The assassin
was about to fire another shot when the
Eistol barrel burst, destroying the use of
is right hand.
Words of Wisdom.
To be able to teach others one must
first earn for himself.
Hurry is the mark of a weak mind
dispatch of a strong one.
Ridicule is the weapon of weak minds
invective of shalkriv ones.
Conceived in a passion, great ideas
themselves fructify in a calm.
Absence destroys trifling intimacies,
but it invigorates strong ones.
In a controversy, the less a man has to
say the hotter he grows ip saying it.
Truth which uncovers a cherished
vice is more hated than the vice itself.
The life which has borne no love is a
garden which had brought forth no.flowers.
The very best and kindest way i
which to look at ^ie faults of your friend3
is to shut your eyes.
"As Siam."?General Grant quietly
asked the King of Siam if he would resign
and accept a position in his next cabinet.
The king rolled his eyes round toward the
general in an incredulous manner, and,
changing his "Jackson's Best" to the
other side of his mouth, said, "I guess I
am well enough as Siam."? Lewiston
Gazette. .
Wrenched and Racked
By the pangs of rheumatism, the joints eventually
become grevioualy distorted, and sometimes
assume an almost grotesque deformity.
To prevent such result* by a nimplo and agreeable
means is certainly the part of wisdom. A
tendency to rheumatic ailments may be successfully
combatted with Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters, a medicine with the prestige of a loug
and succ<*sful career, of unbounded popularity,
and of emphatic professional indorsement. It
removes from the blood those inflammatory
impurities which pathologists assign as tlio
cause of rheumatism, and not only purifies the
life current, but enriches it, promoting Vigor
by fertilizing its source. Digestion, the action
of the bowels and the secretion of the bile, are
aided by it, and it impels the kidneys and bladder
to a regular and active performance ol
their functions. It is besides a thoroughly
reliable remedy for, and means of preventing,
periodic fevers.
It is astonishing with what' rapidity ulcerous
sores and eruptive maladies are cured by
Honry's Carbolic Salve, an external antidote
to unhealthy conditions ol the skin, which is
preferred by physicians to every #her preparation
containing the carbolio element. It is
unuuuuiuuiy mc nuai luuiacj'i'iu uuu pmutui
extant. It acta like a chanu on purulent eruptions,
and has also been successfully used for
rheumatism and sore throat. All druggists
sell it.
