"The physical expressions which
animals employ to manifest their pas

emotions," said a naturalist in thc New
York Sun, "aro precisely similar to
man's. They caress with their lips and
limbs; show resentment by facial dis

a tremor; they leap with joy, loll with
thirst, lag with fatigue, and attack for

with their poor, deficient bodies, are
able to manifest many apparent men

fit of such abstraction that no one

showed plainly there was mental im

a setter dog so intelligent that at a cer
tain hour every day he carried a coin,
inclosed in au envelope by his master,
to the butcher's shop, deposited the
money on the conuter, and got in re
turn meat for his diuner. One day
the dog's master, being very busy, did
not put up the coin as usual, and the
dog, after waiting some time and seeing
that there didn't seem to be any chance
of his getting his dinner, went away.
An hour or so later the butcher came
into my friend's store and told him
that there was no money in the enve
lope the dog had brought over that,
day. The dog's master informed the
butcher that he hadn't sent the dog
with au envelope that day, and was
astonished to hear that the dog had
visited the butcher's carrying an en
velope as usual. Tho dog had put
down the envelope, got his meat and
scampered out of the store as if in a
great hurry, something he had never
done before. Every time before that
lie had brought his meat into his mas

time he had not been seen since he
went away. His master looked him
up, and found him lying in the grass
behind the store, and iu response to
his master's call the dog came to him.
a most shame-faced looking animal,
his hanging head and drooping tail
betraying the guilty feeling he had.
The dog, having seen that his master
wasn't inclined that day to give him
his usual envelope iueiosiug the coin,
had picked up one somewhere about
the store, taken it over to tho butch

away before the cheat, could be dis
covered. He knew he ha l done a wrong

"I had a Newfoundland dog once
that one day bravely rescued a child
from thc water at a seaside resort
where I was stopping. Thc act was
rewarded by much caressing aud
petting of the dog, and by his being
fed generously with candy, bf which
he was extremely fond. This ceased
after a ilay or two, and then one day
the news caine to me that a little girl
had fallen from the end pf the pier and
that Ponto had rescued her. Again
t he dog became for a time a great hero,
and the best of bonbons came again.
This in turn hecamo a thing of the
past, and then, the very next week,the
dog rescued another child that had
fallen from thc pier. Petting and
candy followed this third noble act,
and when they again ceased only a
couple of days passed before Ponto
liad brought safely ashore another
child that had tumbled into the Avater
from tho pier. Now, it begau to
strike me as something odd that the
dog should happen to be so oppor
tunely present on these critical occa
sion, and when he ceased being the
petted hero after this fourth life-sav
ing effect I kept a sly eye on him. The
pier was a favorite play spot for the
children, although so many of them
had fallen into thc water, and one day
I saw Ponto strolling down there to
join them. I followed without his
knowing it. He mingled with the
children, and before long I saw him
deliberately, iu apparent play, edge a
little boy toward the side of the pier
and actually pushed him off into the
water. Then he jumped in after the
boy aud easily carried him the short
distance to the shore. The scoundrel
was actually making a practice of
tumbling children from the pier and
magnanimously saving thtm, just to
receive tho homage and praise and
sweetmeats of the grateful and admir
ing guests. I shipped this Jekyll aud
Hyde dog back to New York that very
day. Now, if he hadn't reasoned all
thnt sly business out and acted on his
conclusions, I don't know what it
might be called."
Ore?on .Sends Its Carp East?
At last a market has been found for
carp, and if it only proves adequate to
the supply which can he furnished,
the number of carp in this section will
soon be reduced. Mr. Reeder, of
Sauvie's Island, says there are now
three men fishing for carp in the out- :
let of Sturgeon Lake, and they sell
their catch to a dealer i:i Portland for
two cents per pound, to he frozen and
shipped East. If the fish find a ready ;
market and the sale increases there
will soon be many more persons fish
ing for them.
When the water is rising the carp
rush up the river into fhe lake, and
when the water begins to fall the sa
gacious fish rush ont again. They '
are caught in a bag or purse nets set '
in the outlet of the lake, and by j
turning the nets around as the flow of 1
the water changes they arc caught "a
comin'or a-gwine." !
The lake and sloughs on Sauvie's 1
Island are swarming with carp, and
there is no end to the quantity that 1
can be taken. Carp grow to weigh '
forty pounds or more and it is said 1
that some weighing forty pounds have '
been seen in Sturgeon Lake, but the
largest seen in the market here 1
weighed a little over twenty-five (
pounds. If the Eastern people will 1
eat carp, they can havo all they want 1

Several Instances In Which Patients
The murder of the actor Terries has
directed pul lie attention very strong
ly to the subject of wounds of the
heart, and professional interest is
aroused by the important fact that,
notwithstanding the extent of the
wound, "which pierced the heart
right through," the murdered mari
lived close upon an hour. The caBes'
in which patients suffering from small
wounds of the heart have lived for
some time, and have even recovered,
are by no means rare. A case was re
ported to the Clinical Society last
year in which a man who had been
stabbed over the third left costal carti
lage, and had suffered severely from
hemorrhage, died seventy-nine days
after the injury from general causes,
and after death a scar was found in
the right ventricle, showing that that
the heart had been penetrated. But
much more severe injuries of the
heart may be recovered from.
Muhlig relates the case of a man
who was stabbed with a stiletto on the
left side of the sternum. For a time
his life was despaired of, but, he re
covered, aud returned to his employ
ment; and on his death, from other
causes, ten years later, it was found
that the pericardium was intimately
adherent to the heart, and that there
was a rounded opening on the inner
surface of the right ventricle admit
ting the little fiuger, and a corre
sponding hole in the inter-ventricular
septum leading into the left ventricle.
It is, however, very important from
a medico-legal point of view to remem
ber that after large wounds of the
heart patients have -been known to
walk or run' some considerable dis
tance after the receipt of the injury.
An instance is on record in which a
stag, the auricle of whose heart had
been practically destroyed, ran fifty or
sixty yards. Taylor relates the fol
lowing case: The keeper of a disre
putable house was tried in Glasgow in
the year 1S19 for the murder of a
sailor by shooting him through the
chest. The auricles and part of the
aorta next to the heart were "shat
tered to atoms" by the slugs and
brass nails with which the piece was
charged; and, in the opinion of the
medical witnesses, the deceased must
have dropped down dead on the mo
ment that he received the shot. The
body was found in the street, and the
door of the prisoner's house was
eighteen feet up au entry; so that it
followed, if the medical opinion was
correct, that the prisoner must have
run after the deceased, and shot him
in the street. It was, however, urged
and proved that he had shot the de
ceased through the door of his own
house, while the latter was attempting
to enter by force. There was, in fact,
a stream of blood from the door to
the spot where the body lay. The
prisoner was acquitted. But many
very extraordinary instances of the
persistence of life after injury to the
heart are on record; for example, one
of a man who lived for twenty days
with a skewer traversing the heart
from side to side, and another of a
boy who lived for five weeks with a
piece of wood three inches long in his
right ventricle.-London Hospital.
Siberian Hallway and "Wlicnt.
The United States Consul at Amoy
makes au interesting report to the
State Department as to the effect of
extension of the Transsiberian Bail
road upon the exportation of Russian
wheat, a question of some importance,
as within the last ten years tho expor
tation of flour from the United Sta..s
to China and Japan has assumed en
couraging proportions. Ho is of
opinion that the above railroad exten
sion Avili not be followed by an in
crease of Russian wheat exportation:
First, because the wheat fields in Si
beria are not numerous or extensive,
and where wheat is grown in the larg
est quantities the railroad does not
penetrate; second, because freight by
rail is too expensive to permit the car
rying of wheat from the interior of
Siberia to the frontier, thus enabling
new fields to develop and materially
affecting the world's market; third,
because the surplus in "Wester Siberia
goes only to the rural districts to sup
ply the deficit of that country; fourth,
because that portion of the country
suited to the production of wheat has
long been under cultivation and is oc
cupied by small holdings. Under these
conditions, he argues, it is not likely
there will be auy material change in
the crops grown and no increase in the
surplus need be expected.
A Kine Who IH a Hotelkccner.
According to Le Journal des De
bats of Paris the most prosp?rons
hotelkeeper in the world is tho King
of Wurtemburg. He runs two large
hotels in Stuttgart. These hotels aro
visited by the best of the merchant
class in Germany, and enrich the
King's private purse to tho tune of
SG2.500 a year. Hotelkeeping has
been followed for ueariy two hundred
years by the rulers of Wurtemburg.
It is recorded that at the beginning
of the eighteenth century Peter the
Great paid a visit to the reigniug
Duke at Stuttgart, and, to avoid the I
pomp and ceremony of the Court, he
sent word to the Duke that he would
put ivp at an inn. The Duke wishing
to gratify the Russian's whim and, at
the same time to do him royal honors,
promptly turned his jmlaco into a'
hotel and sent a secret message to
Peter's postillions to bring the Em
peror there without betraying the
identity of the house. To make the
deception complete he stuck up a
sign-board over the grand entrance^
and received Peter with many bows
in the cap and apron of a maitrej
d'hotel of the period. The "Wurtem
bergers were so pleased with the ex-,
p?riment that they have continued in
the business ever since.
An Arrow In Its Breast.

Hock of wild geese aud bagged several
al them, one of which astonished him

The Petrlfled Forest In Arizona.
Steps are now being taken by the
Government to preserve ono of the
greatest wonders of this country froni
destruction for commercial purposes.
This is the petrified forest of Arizona,
which is located in Apacho County.
The largest and finest specimens of
silicified wood in the world are taken
from it. Whole trunks of trees and
stumps with portions of the root aro
found there, converted into stone as
dense and -hard as the finest agate.
Every cell and every fibre of tho
former wood is preserved in stone. A
forest of trees appears to have been
entombed in the rocks and to have
been preserved by a slow process of
replacement by silica from solutions
permeating the bed. Subsequently
the surrounding sediments were
washed away, but tue enduring fossils
of the trees remained. Tona upon
tons of sp?cimens have been taken
away by collectors and dealers. A
compauy has been formed in South
Dakota for cutting and polishing the
stone for architectural and decorative
work. Sections of these trees four
feet in diameter and large enough for
the tops of tables have been cut and
polished. .Many specimens were shown
at the Paris Exposition, where they
were greatly admired for the perfect
preservation of every detail of struc
ture of the wood, for the very high"
polish and for the exquisite iuter
blending of colors in thu mass, due to
thc presence of various oxides in the
original silicifying solutions. No

"Cat Shakes," Not Cake-Walks, Now.
Cake-walks arc now out of date, if
the latest news is to bo trusted, as
"Cat Shakes" will supersede them in
popularity and wild hilnrity. Tho
first one was held at a Baptist Church
in Jeffersonville, Ind., for the pur
pose of raising tho debt, and im
mediately caught on, although there
was some difficulty in catching the
cat. The director of the shake was a
minister, who stood in the pulpit with
a giinnybag in which was a largo,
able-bodied black cat. First he shook
the hag vigorously to arouse the ire
of the cat aud limber him up, aud then
to the music of "Mr. Johnson, Turn
Mo Loose," he turned the cat loose
into the audience, who immediately
joined in a frantic though zealous cat
hunt. A football rush would have
been child's play compared to the
scrimmage which ensued, and every
thing was in order, thero being no
penalties for foul tackling or holding
on the line. The one who catches tho
cat gets fifty cents reward. Now, in

A Strange Love Affair.
A touching romance in the life of
the late Right Hon. Charles Pelham
Villiers, "Father" of the House of
Commons, has been disclosed by his
death. In early life he fell deeply iu
love with a Miss Mellish, and his af
fection was returned ns far as could be
done by a Indy who for some reason
had taken a vow to lead a single life.
Mr. Villiers remained trne to his first
love, and never married, and his con
stancy so touched Miss Mellish that in
her will she left all her fortune-a
considerable one-to him absolutely.
He, however, never touched the
money, leaving it to accumulate with
interest, while he lived very simply
an his own modest revenue, supple
mented by his Cabinet pension. By the
ame of Mr. Villier's death the capital
originally left by Miss Mellish had
jrown to a sum considerably over a
quarter of a million sterling. Of this
total ho, by his will, left ?75,000 to
Rev. Montague Villiers, Vicar of St.
Paul's Knightsbridge, and a somewhat
similar sum to Mr. Ernest Villiers.
The 'Women of Muscat.
The women wear a garb which is
distinctive from that of other East
erns in general effect, though not in
detail. While the men don brilliant
robes, the women put on brilliant
trousers, a sort of compromise be
tween knickerbockers and breeches,
and above is a loose waistcoat of vel
vet with big buttons, but in the
streets this is often hid by a long en
shrofiding black shawl. They do not
cover their faces entirely as the Per
sian women do, nor do they hide the
lower part of the countenance accord
ing to the custom of the Egyptians.
They obey the Koran law of hiding
the features, but the hiding is per
functory. Around the head, and,
consequently, stretched over the face,
is black cloth with holes cut to see
through, another to breathe through,
and a fourth, if necessary, to sneeze
through. These holes are frequently
quite large; and, instead of the woman
being a .mystery, I could always tell
at a glance whether she was young or
old, ugly or beautiful. Around their

~ Watches For Shirt Waists.
Everything seems to point to th?
fact that the shirt-waist girl will be
greatly in evidence next summer. Not
only aro the shops filled with madras,
percale, lawn, gingham, dotted swis.s
and silk shirt waists of all shades,
designs and styles, but the art of the
jeweller is also called into requisition
to beautify these favorites of the up
to-date tailor made girl.
' Recognizing the fact that the long
gold chains now in vogue are entire
ly out of place on the plain bosom of a
stylish shirt waist, and that the stick
ing in and pulling out of watches from
the snug leather, velvet, ribbon .and
jewelled belts which are de riguer
now is not only very troublesome,
but eventually proves to be the de
struction of many dainty Geneva
timekeepers, the manufacturers set
their wits to work to devise something
which would do away with tho long
neckchnin and the inconvenience of
dragging a watch in and out of a tight
belt, with the happiest result imag
Examiuing the novelties made in
one of the leading jewelry stores, I
came across what seemed to be a
rather large sized shirt button. Close
inspection showed that it was a niin
iiturc watch. Its face is no larder
than an ordinary enamelled shirt
stud. At the back, connected by a
short shank, is another button, very
much larger, in which the works of
the watch are contained. The gili
who wears it has only ;to bend her
head down to find out the time.
These little watches come in many
different designs, and range in price
