A SPLENDID JOKE. Though It Did Not "Wind Up Ac cording' to Programme. Ij- George! it'll bo capital fun!" "But won't they 'smoke' it?" Osot they; the train's too well laid, and only needs touching off." The speakers were Guy Riggs and Seth Norton, two of a knot of hilarious students, so-called a non sliideiulo that is, by the rule of contraries. George Wells and Hiram "West, a couple of their chums, were the theme of discourse. George and Hiram wero both "atten tive" to the same young lady, and wero thought, in consequence, to bo as jeal ous as "the Moor," ii not moro so, and nearly as b'oody-minded. Tho first of April as at hand; and it would bo a rich joke, Guy and Seth and the rest of them thought, if the rival lovers could be hoaxed into call ing ono another out that day, and mak ing themselves ridiculous by firing blank cartridges at each other, all the ivhilo believing they were exchanging bullets. To work the thing up no end of tale bearing was resorted to. Georgo was told that Hiram had cast reflections on his character what they were could not be divulged without a breach of confidence entirely beyond tho palo of Christian forgiveness, while Hiram was given to understand that George had said things of him, which the informer forbore to repeat, lest- bloody conse quences should follow. And so back and forth reports were carried, each moro atrocious than its predecessor, and still more darkly vague and indefinite. It was in tho days when people thought there was a logical connection between wounded honor and wounds of tho flesh, and that however grossly a gentleman insulted you to-day, he made .you amplo reparation if ho shot you through the thorax for it to-morrow. On tho morning of the first, George received a note, purporting to be from Hiram West, inviting him to a hostile meeting at two o'clock that afternoon, naming a place likely to afford security .against interruption. "It -will be unnecessary to reply to this," the note concluded, "as no other satisfaction will "be accepted for the injury you have done me than that usually recognized among gentlemen. ir you are as ready to back your scandalous "words as you have been to utter them, be pres ent at the time appointed, with a friend, and -armed. Yours, etc., Hiram West." About the same timo Hiram received xl similar missive, signed "George Wells." Both notes, wo may add, lad been written by Guy Riggs. who possessed a precocious aptitudo for jfergery, which, unless speedily cor rected, bade fair to land .him in State prison one day. "They'll be sure to chose some of us -as seconds," said Guy; "and we'll keep 1em popping away till the powdergires out, shortening the dislanco every other fire, and in tho end. call them a brace of April-fools, and laugh them off the .ground." "But suppose they chooso other sec onds. not in the secret" suggested one more timid than the rest, "harm may -some of it." "Pshaw! you croaker," retorted Guy; "whom can they get? There's nobody out of the secret but Tom Strait and Stephe Blithers, and they're both Sunday-school teachers. Besides, some of us will be near enough to prevent mis chief." Sure enough, Guy Riggs received an early call from George Wells, who very privately and with many injunctions of secrecy, confided to Guy his engage ment for two o'clock, requesting him to be present as his friend on the occa sion. "We had better go separately." said George; "it will be less likely to at tract attention." "Quite right," answered Guy, grave ly; and the two parted. A like interview, with the like result, took place between Hiram West and Seth Norton. The two seconds then returned to their companions and reported progress; and the fun they were all going to have was "discounted" by laughing over it in ad vance. It was settled that the whole crowd should be on hand all but Guy and Seth keeping out of sight, but near enough to hear and see every thing. "What's this?" exclaimed Guy, his eye glancing over a note placed in his hand. He read: "Having an intimation that suspicions are afloat, and not being able to And you at the mo ment, I have taken in your place Stephe Blith ers through whom I have arranged to have the affair to come off an hour sooner. I shall be off, and probably all will be over before this reaches you. If we never meet again, farewelL" "Confound tho fool!'' broko out Guy, snatching up his hat. "Confound the pair of them!" joined in Seth, when he had torn open and read another note, of which he was the recipient "Here's that donkey Hiram gone off with that j)ke of a Tom Strait, who has no more idea of a joke than tho late Euclid had." "Thero'll bo murder done that's all," lugubriously whined tho timid young man. With one accord, in tho faint hope that they might yet bo in timo to pre vent the diro consequences of their folly, they sallied forth like a flock of frightened sheep, Guy Riggs taking tho lead as bell-wether. Puffing and panting, they came in sight of the place. Thank Heaven, they wero not too late! " Tho combat ants stood in their places, pistols in hand. "Hold! hold! for Heaven's sake!" shouted Guy. "Hold on, I say!" bellowed Seth Nor ton; "it's all a blamed hoa " But before the word was uttered, Blith ers waved his handkerchief, and both pistols went off together. Hiram remained standing, but poor George fell heavily to the ground. The two seconds wore stooping over him whon Guy and his companions reached the spot "Poor fellow! It's all over with him," said Blithers, in the solemn tone he was accustomed to use in addressing his class "shot through the lungs, and bleeding inwardly." "He must bo got to his room without delay, and a doctor summoned," said Tom Strait Tho wounded man, who seemed in sensible to what was passing, was gently raised up and placed in a carriage in waiting, which was driven off. Blithers accompanying his unfortunate friend, whom ho tenderly supported in his arms. "And now, gentlemen." said Tom Strait, "it's my opinion the sooner we get away from here the better. The authorities will be hera in a trice, and every man on tho ground will bo ar rested; and," shaking his head, "I need hardly say it's a bad piece of bus iness." "For a Sunday-school teacher to be engaged in," was tho retort on tho top of moro than one tongue; but Guy and his companions felt that they wero most of all guilty; and were silent "Of course, my friend and myself must leave the country at once," Tom proceeded; "but some of you must break the news to poor Katie King without delay. It would quite kill her if she heard it without preparation." Hiram West stood like one horrified at a deed tho enormity of which ho had boon unable to realize till after he had committed it When his friends took him by tho arm, he suffered himself to be led away, whither ho seemed neither to know nor care. The others had lost no time in quit ting the fatal spot A batch of young Cains they felt themselves, whose brother's blood, while they remained thore, kept crying against them from the ground. Tho task of breaking the news to Katie was voted to Guy Riggs. He would gladly have shirked it; but he was most to blame, tho others said, and it was his duty, and couldn't deny it Though Katie was somewhat of a coquette, and, from time to time, had encouraged, more or less, the advances of both George and Hiram, it was com monly understood that the former was her favorite, and Guy's heart sank as he came into her cheerful presence, the conscious bearer of so fearful tidings. "Why. what's the matter, Mr. Riggs?"said Kate, after a glance at his face. "You look as doleful as a paid mourner at a funeral." The word made him start "I I " he stammered. "You you what?" asked Kate. "I I hare sad news to telL" "Tell it then; it'll not improve by keeping." He could not accuse her of levity, though her words sounded like it for she was yet in ignorance of the sor rowful truth. "Georgo Wells" he began Again. Well, what of him?" "He has met with a serious acci dent" Kate covered her face with her hands, and seemed convulsed with emo tion. "He'a mortally wounded!" Guy blurt ed out Kate became still more convulsed, but it was with laughter, which she rang out silvery peal after peal, whereat Guy stood amazed, till anoth er laugh, louder and less silvery, re called him. It came from the throat of George Wells, who suddenly ap peared on the scene in remarkably good case for a man with a. bullet in his lungs. ' "You see," said George, slapping Guy on tho shoulder, "we -smoked' your little plot Hiram and I. and with the assistance of Kate here, and our two serious friends, Strait and Blithers, did a little counterplotting." The most April-foolish looking man to be seen that day was Guy Riggs. N. Y. Ledger. GENIUS AND CRIME. A Mental Dlieaie Characterized by a Total Absence of Delations. While it is fully recognized by med ical men that genius and insanity are sometimes curiously intertwined in the same person, or are displayed in close ly connected members of the same fam ily, it is not so easy to trace the connec tion between these mental conditions and thoso sinful or criminal acts which are apt to bo committed by persons so or ganized. The medical profession rec ognizes forms of affection or moral in sanity in which the capacity to govern the emotions is in abeyance. In this phase of mental diseaso a marked fea ture is the absence of delusions; hence the conflict of opinion between the med ical and legal aspects which often arises whero the question of criminality has to be taken into consideration. A person is often tried and condemned by the law, but is exonerated and pro tected by medical judgment which is permitted to supesedo legal judgment Thus the condemned criminal escapes tho gallows, becomes an object of pity and commisoration, is protected by and at the expense of tho State, and saved henceforth from further harm to himself- or others. Ho may havo been nay, indeed often is a person of the highest talent or genius.- Rev. William Dodd, a canon of the church, tho unfortunate English divine who was executed on tho 27th of June, 1777, forforgery, after trial at the Old Bailoy, is an instance of' the insuffi ciency of the law acting .apart from medical judgment, which unfortunately in those days had not acquired the authority it now possesses. In our day. where doubt exists, tho law leans to tho side of mercy, that quality which is "twice blessed." . Whero the acts of the subject of mor al mania are criminal, the question of his responsibility is settled with much difficulty, even when, as in such cases, every opportunity of investigation is af forded. How much more difficult then, must it be to arrive at a right judg ment in thoso cases of moral mania whero the acts aro sinful, but not crim inal. The law does not come to his rescue. Ho is not the subject of delu sions, yet his acts are the acts of "mad ness, not badness." He may inflict on himself the punishment of degradation and ruin, and life-long misery on those previously near and dear to him. He bears tho scorn ot former friends, and in his lucid intervals feels it keenly. But when the impulse is on him noth ing but the absolute control of others is sufficient to check his wayward ca reer. The influence of religion may have some weight on him, but unfor tunately it is too frequently tho case that the strongest faith is inadequate to stay the downward course. Men are apt to judge their fellow men uncharitably, and to deal harshly with them, believing them to be capa ble of exercising restraint over them selves, while all the timo nothing short of enforced restraint and medical treat ment can avail. A PECULIAR INDUSTRY. Raisins of Kids for Their Skins by French Mountaineers. Tho raising of kids for their skins is a principal industry among the French mountaineors, and it supplies no smali part of their subsistence. Softness, delicacy of texture and freedom from blemish aro principal factors in the value of kid skins, and to secure these great pains are taken. Diet is the prin cipal thing, and mother's milk is what keeps the kid in perfect condition for the uses of the glover. As soon as the young animal begins to eat grass the value of the skin declines, for with a grass diet its skin immediately begins to grow coarser and harder in texture, and its chief merit vanishes. It is, therefore, kept closely penned, not only to prevent it from eating grass, but also to secure its skin from accidental injury from scratches, bruises, eta, which are fatal to perfection. When the kids have reached a certain age, at which the skins are in the best condi tion for the use of the glover, they are killed, and the skins are sold to travel ing hawkers, through whom they reach the great centers of the tanning indus try at Annonay, Milbau, '.'Paris and Grenoble. The superior quality of these kid skins, due to climatic causes, it is that has given Franco the supremacy in the manufacture of the finest grades of real kid gloves a supremacy that will doubtless be long maintained, inasmuch as foreign manufacturers must in gen eral rest content with second-rate skins, unless they maintain agents on tho ground, a policy that some English and American houses have found neces sary.

For a year or two past the collector for a certain Detroit tailor has boon trying all sorts of pacific ways to get the sum of thirteen dollars out of a young man who has been a debtor for over two years. The collector had been put off a hundred times by prom ises made to be broken, and he has worked every racket known to tho pro fession without avail. The other evening he happened down at the Third street depot and saw his young man buy a ticket for Chicago. "So you aro going West?" he asked. "Only to Chicago. I'll be back in thiee or four days, and then I want to pay you that little bill." "Yes. Going to Chicago on a visit" "Something of a visit going to get married." "No!" "Fact The ceremony takes place at ten o'clock in tho morning." "And you want to be there, of course?" "J should smile!" Tho collector took off his hat, re moved his coat and was peeling off his vest when the other asked him what was up. "I've been biding my time, and my opportunity lias come," he repliod. "How what?" "I'm going to light into you. You aro the bigger man, and I expect to be licked, but the row will certainly cause both of us to be arrested and taken to the station, and you will thus miss your train. Perhaps I can black your eye, and in that case tho marriage can't come off for a week. Put up your dukes!" "Say, man. you wouldn't bo as mean as that?" "Thirteen dollars or a row!'' Til pay you half." "The whole or nothing. It's my first last and only chance. Come down or . put up." The young took out his boodle and counted out the amount of his bill, and while ho skipped for the train the other calmly donned his garments and left the depot whistling.

At present about thirty per cent of the officers of the armv are wAiimtoa r the national 3Iilitary College at Cha- rmlfoYxAs. .i .... f-ir, m;re aoout tnree hundred cadets constantlv are in train" a whence about sixty officers are graduated annually. Tho course pursued here is similar to that at West Point, and the I gradual retirement of the older officers, combined with this constant addition of young olncers who have been thoroughly trained in accordance with the best of modern military theories, is having a very marked effect in raising the moral tone of the army and in increasing its practical efficiency. The cadets, as a rule, are drawn from tho upper classes of Mexican society, but among them and this is a very prominent element in the new army are a number of young fellows whose brown or brownishskins show their nativo Indian blood. It is a notable and hopeful fact that the native Indians more and more are com ing to the front in tho government of their own country. Juarez, who, all things considered, was the greatest statesman that Mexico as yet has pro duced, was an Indian of the pure blood, and President Diaz owes in part to his dash of this fino strain his patient reso lution and his steady courage in con tending with great difficulties. Tho presence of these brown-faced lads among tho cadets, and of brown- faced men in the national Congress and in the various departments of tho government, is a sign of healthy national growth, of which the importance scarcely can bo over estimated. As a wholo, the ca det battalion presents a fine soldierly appearance; and the individual cadet, as seen on tho streets of tho City of Mexico on Sundays and feast-days, when off from Chapultepec on all day leave, is as well set-up, soldierly a young fellow as is to be found anywhere. And even the "cockyness' of these spruco lads in their handsome uniforms, while likely to make an old soldier smile a little in a"kindly way. is a sign of proper pride in an honorable profession that an old soldier best appreciates and is least dis posed seriously to condemn. Prido in the uniform means pride in the service, and is a sign that when the time comes for fighting neither the uniform nor the service will be disgraced. The Chapul tepec boys havo gallant traditions to sustain them, for in tho time of tho American invasion they bore a brave part in defending tho hill on which their college stands against tho assault of Scott's army. At the base of the hill a monument fittingly commemo rates the heroism of these young sol diers and eloquently exhibits how well they fought by tho long list of names graven upon it of those who that day died. Altogether, the Military College is an institution of which the Mexicans, in tho army and out of it, aro justly proud; for both in its processess and in its results it is highly creditable to the nation at large. An important adjunct to tho collego, recently established, is the artillery school, in which officers of that arm take a post-graduate course, and to which officers in the service aro detailed for instruction.
