THE ENTERPRISE, WEDNESDAY; AUGUST II, 1689.
6 THE STUDY OF SELF. Th Via j to a I'roper Valuation of Our selves ant Out Attalnmaat. It U little injrulur tbat a quality which la really essential to decency, not to say ex cellence, is yet one capable of producing- a deterioration of character, quite ai low in ita descent at ita opposite is lofty in alt, tude, aays Harper's Bazar. For a certain amount of consciousness of ourselves is good and necessary, while too (Treat an amount is debasing and unworthy. With out a proper pride, as it Is called, where are wet We are almost without self-respect For pride of a personal kind keeps one in the observance of those lesser duties, which not to observe would render one recreant ia one's own estimate. It will allow one to do nothing at odds with one's ideal of honor, of honesty, of civility, of kindness, and, where religious props and stays are miss ing, it keeps one from much of the evil that lies In wslu If it is not Rood morals in itself it enforces pood manners, and leads the way to good moraU by such regard of the real reasou and motifs of good manners as springs from the Ooldea Rule, if bav ins; nothing to do with that rule in It self. But, indulged beyond a proper point, this characteristic lm capable of as suming double mask, either aspect of which is hateful It has on the one side ar rogance, an expression of self utterly outof proportion with right and truth, where the claimant gathers to himself all the wisdom and virtue and admirable quality that there may be in question, and if he does not ex claim: "I am Sir Oracle, and when I speak let no dog bark," he thinks it, and therefore bears himself as If he were infallible. It is Into this detestable quality that pride of birth and pride of money merge themselves. Adventitious circumstances as both birth and money are, the person who manifests pride in them, and claims superiority be cause of them, acquires unconsciously a haughtiness of manner that makes him not only unbearable but laughable, the haughti ness being only the external manifestation of the undue estimate of the fact of one's Individuality, and showing, on the whole, leas nobility and worth than there might have been, without either high birth or great wealth, Inasmuch as pride in ma terial and perishable things is less to be esteemed than pride in spiritual ones. A man of proper pride could never arrogate to himself the possession of ths merest trifle that wss not really bis ; he would consider it as allot a piece with any other dishon esty, and he will never drag his name in the dust of assertion, struggle and dissent; but an arrogant man, assuming to be the equal of bis superiors, is sever any thing but a ridiculous ebject to those whose floor senses are not off ondod by him. The other aspect of this double mask is that presented by the activity of vitality and self-conceit. Sot that the presence of vanity always Implies that of an overween ing conceit; It may be that its possessor by no means overestimates a particle of his powers or belonging; be msy bsve all that of which be is vain, and be really a marvel of capacity or beauty, or whatever is the thing most valued in his category. When tbe preacher said: "All is vanity," he meant to nse tbe literal signification of the word all is boliowness; and hence some times we attach to tbe word an Idea of falsity and pretence, which, as tbe word Is now used, is erroneous, as one Is vain only of what one actually possesses, or sincerely thinks he possesses, snd vanity pure and limple is ss much an expression of active bterest In one's self as any thing else. There is, indeed, a certain questionable ranety of vanity which if so spurious and ieploraMe as hardly to be claimed by either pride or vanity, and is to be clsssed undo" the bead of self-righteousness; but kept out of sight it does no special harm to any one, and if it docs not clog his moral endeavor, acts on.'y ss a stimulant to the possessor; always odious in the angelic and superior eyes, it is only when it be comes so overtopping as to obtrude itself upon earthly neighbors that it becomes odious to them; or wben it is founded on next to noth ing that it makes its victim absurd; it is then a form of self-conceit that is aa abomination In all eyes and ears. To the self-centered person tho outer universe is a trifle; the ego is the only univorse; the rest of mankind are mere taotos, or at best parasites; be bia-scll wals with his head In tee clouds, ar. J so loftily tjat be fails to toethepebb.ncs4u,U.L's feet stumble, it the party -cA r .hWL-j his folly has dressed hi:n lllx H.tr'' tiU.Y On the whole, .fin some n lir.. thei j is toy bracing or timulatingqua..: in the possession oft tertala aaiou ;t cf pride, yet its abuse Is so tempting anl so easy that one is led to think it wou.J i better whe. the good fairy giro irU'tn to decline that one alto gether, lnlu.,'.rg no vanity, and running no danger of trampling over the weak and poor-spirited. Tnssafe and wise maxim, i'Kuow thyself," which used to be worked Ly little maidens on their book-marks, in the day of perforated paper, paints out the way to a proper valuation of ourselves and our attainments. Possibly no one ever really acquired lbs knowledge thoroughly W accurately; but be who has endeavored o do so can not help agreeing with the poet wben he writes : " SeU-raversace, ssU-kcewltdje, self-control These three Itsd ma to sovereign power." A KENTUCKY FREAK. It Has a Male's fe-dj, mm AMeu's Face, sail Eats Tubaoea. From out of Taylor's Bottoms, bsck of Ifewport, Ky., bos Lsen brought a living rurtosity much aTovs ths general order of freaks, says tbe Cincinnati Enquirer. It was discovered by Henry Cohen, of Dine A Cotton, bought by him and re moved to this e-.tv. At present It is boosed hi the Arm's sisoles on Liberty street, near Central avenue. In form Its body is that of a mule of diminutive stature, but in every respect a mule all over. It head, however, a curiosity. It is much shorter than the Ordinary, and the ears are the only parte Ibont it in keeping with the body. The face resembles closely that of a full-blooded segro. Tbe forehead is full ever tbe eye and receding. Turn nose is s perfect repro duction of toe African nomas type, though en a mnca larger scale, and the nondescript expands and contracts the nostrils la a manner remarkably manlike. They ar set some distance above the usual location, snaking room for a long upper lip. The mouth, instead of being set in the middle of the muzzle, is more toward the ton. The upper jaw Is abort, the lower projecting ever twe inches beyond it, and the animal when chewing moves it a and down and without the sidewaya, grinding motion used try all grass-eating animals. Tbe hair on the face is of a woojly nature. The animal Is about four years eld, and, having been a household pet, is very tame. There are many visitors at the stable daily, bat admie sioa is generally denied. While being shown yesterday the animal chewed a nand ful of tobacco with much gnete.

THE BITER BITTEN. A Praetloal Joke Which Came Near end ing la a Tragedy, A young physician went to see his cousin, an army officer, out upon the great plains., The officer was given to practical jokes, and tbe young doctor, being a genuine "tender-' foot," was a most promising subject. One) morning, says the Youth's Companion, the1 host gravely proposed an elephant hunt1 "What," said the doctor, "do you have ele phants out herer" "Plenty of them," replied the host. Prep-' rations were at otioe begun, and by nine o'clock a party of youngsters, ripe for the fun, were after elephants. When about five or six miles from the post the doctor was sent through a thicket of "wait-a-bit", thorns, of which he knew nothing. Antici pating rare sport at bis plight on his return the bost sat on his horse waiting, when he heard a shot and was startlod by loud cries for help. He galloped through the glades and ar rived at a small prairie openiug of an acre or two in extent, around which the doctor was frantically urging his pony, while only a few yards behind was a huge wild Texas bull in full charge. All the manliness of the host was aroused by this real and unexpected danger of his friend, and, without a moment's hesitation, he dashed in and fired a pistol shot In an instant the bull turned upon him. His large American bono was unequal to the emer gency, and in turning was met full in the side by the horns of the bcust. i Both horse and rider were lifted for one instant Into tbe i.lr, and than came down in a heap together. The horse was dead with out a struggle, one tjrn being completely through his body, tbe other caught in the bones of tbe chest One log of the rider was between the borns of the bull, pinned fast between his head and tbe body of the horse. Tbe whole hunting puiy soon assembled. They were afraid to shoot the bull, lest his struggles might further injure the man pinned to him. At last his jugular vein was opened and be slowly bled to death. His borns were then cut off, tbe horse lilted and tbe now nearly doad man carried on a litter back to tbe post Though no bones wore bokon, he paid the full penalty of his joke, not only with the loss of a fins horse, but with several weeks of severe suffering. It was bis last 'ele phant" hunt LADIES LOSING WATCHES. An Invosticetlng Reporter Tolls Where They 8b.oa.ld Wear Them. Going into some of the large stores up town one may notice that many of the young women behind the counters who are so fortunate as to possess watches hsve the rings at the stems of their ttme-pieoes drawn through boles in tbelr Jerseys and fastened down securely by a button, so that a watch could not be removed without quite an effort, and certainly not without its wearer knowing about it This is a scheme of wearing a watch that has gone Into fash ion in the stores, and it bas a substantial and sensible basis Recently a great many rratt-kes have been stolen or lost, and in tbe lost, anl totind columns of the Herald a (urg.T number than nstml have been report ed. Fnm the small number reported as force! compared with the large number re p. -tod as lost it is apparent that either the hnr:y of the people who have been finding wn'h?s on t'.ie curbstones lately is at s very low stimlard, or else tbe watches were mal'.y not lost in tlto souse inteuded by ths advert -.sen, but stolen. It bas been quite fashionable for ladies, especially for those engaged In tho stores, to wear their watch es In their bosoms, with fob chains hang ing out of the bu'.rm-noloa of their Jerseys. In most of tbi rates where watches have been lest the weiivrs bad grown careless, and to savo t:ne u.id to Imre the time piies as available aa men have theirs, tbey bad just tucked them in between tbelf corset coven and tbe corse u, instead ol inside tbe corsets as most ladies, it Is be lieved, do. Thus worn, they were an Invi tation to a pickpocket, and in the crowds on tbe horse-can and ferries just after the closing boun of tbe stores it was an easy matter for an expert thief to make "hauL" A lady who lives at the other end of Beacon street bad the misfortune to find a watch on one of the streets down town the other day, and she advertised it in tbe Herald. Tbe applicants who called right away after tbe appearance of the advertise ment were so numerous that it was a per son's work to attend the door. The lady was surprised that so many people could have lost watches. Tbe police will say that there are no thieves in the city they always do but tbe young ladies up town know better. NATURAL COWARDICE. Coloael Dedlev Tells the Btorr of a Sol dier Afflicted with IU Talking about courage and cowardice at the club the other day, says the Washing ton Post, Colonel Dudley remarked that bs always had as much sympathy with a cow ardly man as be had admiration for a bravf one, for be thought serve was a natural at tribute to man, just like a taste for art, the gift of acquiring languages, or musical tal ent One man may have a gift for music, while his next-door neighbor msy not be able to tell one note from another. Bo one man may be a natural coward, while his brother his cousin may be born without tbe sense f fear. "I hadtvae in my own regiment, tbe Nineteen!. 'ndiana," continued Colonel Dudley.

He was a good cam, soldier, but we were never able to get him into a battle. 'Tbesoundofexplosivesorthe sight of blood would throw him Into hyster ics of fear, and when be was placed in a po sition of danger be would become nncon t reliable temporarily insane. Finally be deserted, went" over into tbe rebel lines, and then came back with a suit of gray on, expecting that be would be sent to some northern prison as a Con federate. But be was identified, tried by court-martial, and aentenced to be shot as a deserter. He was shot and, strangely enough, on the dsy of his execution, for tbe tint time in his life, he behaved like a hero. I never saw a man exhibit tbe nerve be did. He refused to hare his eyes bandaged, but stood np beside his coffin and looked straight into tbe barrels of tbe musket that were pointed at his heart He made an ante-mortem statement in which he claimed that his desertion was not due te lack of loyalty, but to bodily fear. He thought he could get out of tbe army that way, and 1 beiiev hie words were true." . ,A Itaaettaa mt aaeeila A woman of enigmatical age, who poses Ma drees reformer, says that "if a young man were tosqueese a woman as hard -a does her corset, she would have him aires ed tor assault with intent to km."

' "Of the dolls sold in America," said a prominent whole! dealer in toy to a New York Time man, "nine-tenth come from Germany. Of the a large propor tion are made in one little place, Bonne berg, a town of about ten thousand Inhabit ant In Thnringnn. Almost the entire in dustry of this place is confined to the man ufacture of dolls. The inhabitant are very poor people and are brought up to doll-making. "Before it is oomploted a doll passe through many hand. The heads, hand and feet are made by one person, the body by another, the hair is fixed on by another, and the face is painted by two other differ ent people, one doing the rough work and tbe second the finishing touches. Tbe oloth ing 1 mode by another person and the dresses are put on by still another. All this labor is done at such starvation prices that American can not compete in the man ufacture, although the duty for Importation is thlrty-flv per cent "To thi town of Bon neberg there come every year a large number of buyer from all over the world. I go there myself and never fall to meet at least a score of Ameri can en (raged in the tame business. There are at least BOO different kinds of dolls, and the variety is remarkable. Tbe French In vent many of tbe most attractive, but the Germans copy them so cheaply that the world's buyera go to the latter for their stock. For the manufacture of fine dress dolls the French still he'd the lead by long odds. It is only in the chonper good that the German outspued thorn. England fur nishes very fow dolls, and I can now recall tnly one kind that 1 distinctly English the English rag doll, which is made wholly of rags, even to the face, the eyes being sewed on. There ere French walking doll, smok ing men and other automatic figures, but these do not really belong to the family of dolls. They an mechanical figures, too in tricate In their mechanism to be classed as mere doll. Of tbe rubber doll fully one half are made in America, whore any thing that la machine mode prospen to the ex Sluslon of imported stuffs. "Tbe price of dolls ranges from 1 cent to 150, but the most popular are those that sell for 25 cent, 80 cents and II, although there has been great run recently on 5 5eut and 10-cent dolls. "As with dolls, so It is with other toys, rhe most of them coma from Gormany, where they an made very cheaply. Thi tame town of Bonneberg furnishes msny of them, but more come from Nuremberg and mall towns in its vicinity. It is in this dis trict that magnetic toys, (word, guns, trumpets, horns, woolly sheep, jumpmg jacks, monkeys on sticks, jocks in the box snd ingenious mechanical toy or made. The carved woodon toy come principally from the Bavarian highland, but they are brought to Nuremberg to be sold. Th cheaper grades of wooden toys are made in poorer Saxony and comprise cheap arks and sets of furniture. "How ohesply they make these thlug you can judge from thi instance. Hera I a toy of furniture consisting of three chairs, a bureau, a table, a sofa and a mirror, care fully dona np In a substantial pasteboard box. Now, after having paid 35 per cent duty and having allowed 30 per cent for freight and other expense, we cell such furniture sets at 75 cent per dozen aud make a reasonable profit Ton can ngure out tbe original cost if you choose. "Porcelain toys tea sots and thing of that sort sre also made very cheaply, tbo waste place in the potteries being filled up with their mold without much additional coat Toy bone, cows, elephant, cat, dog, lion, tlgera and all kind of animal are mode largely In tbo German prisons. Many of these are Ingenious novelties, being so constructed as to be able to move heada and emit a noise resembling more or less the natural cries of each animal The retail price of these toys runs from SO cents to (50, according to size snd perfection. Wo sold a toy horse tbo other duy for (SO about the same time a real racer was disposed of at auction lip-town for a much less sum. "Of the wooden toys fully one-half are made in America. They include ABC blocks, building block snd frames, and are easily turned out by machinery. Iron toys are also made largely here, ncil so are tia toys. The tin for the latter is imported from Europe, snd wben the t.iy nre finished tbey are exported for the Euro; can market Tbe majority of the rubber toys come from France, chiefly from Paris, although the manufacture of thia line of playthings is constantly increasing in America, and the American rubber toys are really the best te be had. The reason that America has not taken tbe lead in tbe manufacture of rubber, toys is found in tbe fact that the demand for other rubber goods is so great a to abut out toys. Toy watches are largely made In France and are remarkably cheap. We sell watches with chains, charm and movable hand for 85 cent per dozen, after having allowed for duty and freight "Of the standard game the best chess men come from England ; backgammon and checkers are made almost altogether in America; bone domino, dice and the cheaper grades of chess come from France; toy printing presses, locomotives and all that line of goods are domestic. Toy print ing presses were furnished formerly al most wholly by tbe Germans, but latterly the Americans bsve superseded their Teu tonic brethren in this Industry.. In educa tional toy America lead tbe world, and ex port large quantities. Bo It does also la tbe manufacture of out-door gomes, lawn tennis, croquet baae-bail, etc" A UTTLE FOREilGHT. .'
