Watterson a Sweet MiiiKcr.
Several of our exchanges express as
tonishment that Henry Watterson and
Murat Halstead should have been in
vited to meet Christine Nilsson at tho
wbito house in Washington. They evi
dently do not know what they are talk
ing about Watterson is a capital
singer and Halstead used to give in
struction in piano playing and thor
ough bass before ho embarkod in jour
nalism. Mmo. Nilsson was charmed
to moot these gentlomen and renew an
acquaintance she formed with them
during her first visit to this country,
twelve years ago. She reminded Mr.
Watterson that she sang the towor
scene from "Trovatoro" with him at
the Gait House, in Louisville, in the
winter of 1871.
"Come, let us repeat it now, for old
time's sake," said she, cordially.
Mr. Watterson tried to beg off, but
his excuses were in Tain. President
Arthur pleaded, Nilsson insisted and
Mr. Halstead volunteered to play the
accompaniment on the plana He had
to consent, and in all fairness it must
be aaid he sang very well Watterson's
voice is a trifle worn, -but his dramatic
intensity and the power 'of feeling 1 ho
throws into his singing fully compen

once noble organ. Chicago News.

Throw it Out.
"Well," said Conductor Jones to a
G'obe representative, "ono of tho fun
niest things that ever happened on my
train occurred one day at Bethlehem.
An old man whom I hud noticed in tho
ill awing room car as a very lively and
talkative traveler got off at that sta
tion. I was standing at an open win
dow of tho car just as tho train was
starting off, when whom should 1 see

me from tho outside. Ho ponted

"Mv valiso left it thero throw it
Turning quickly I saw a large black
valiso in the scat indicated, and, seiz
ing it, rushed to the rear platform of
the car, whero thero was quite a num
ber of gentlemen. Tossing it to ono of
them, as they blocked the way so I
couldn't get through, I shouted:
1 "Throw it to the old man there."
' Without a moment's hesitation tho
man did as directed. As tho valise
left his hand bo made an ineffectual
effort to regain possession of it, then,
with a muttered exclamation which I
couldn't comprehend, leaped from tho
train, seized tho ill-fatod baggage, and
was just in time to board ono of tho
rear cars. It was all dono in an in

story. In a minute he mado his way
forward and angrily asked:
"What did you toll mo to throw this

"Because tho old man wanted it."
"Well, then, he's a thief. That val

"Then," said I, laughing, for the
wholo situation seemed so perfectly

Hartley Campbell.
While in conversation with a gentle
man who claims to havo known Bart
ley Campbell from boyhood, ho told
tho following story of how tho now
famous dramatist came to take up
journalism and playwriting:
"Bartloy and I wero working to
gether in a brickyard near Pittsburg,
both at tho samo bench. One of the
helpers had just brought a fresh load
of clay and deposited it on the bench
in front of us. Bartloy took up a
handful of cold, moist earth and com
menced to work it in his hands. Pres
ently he stopped and secmod lost in
thought All at once he dashed the
clay no was working down on tho heap
and looking at mo, said: 'If ever I
mold another handful of clay may the
life bo squeezed out of mo,' and going
to whero his coat hung on a nail ho
took it down, put it on, and startod
down hill. 'Hold on, Bartley,' said I,
'If you'ro going to quit, I quit too,'
and 1 took my coat and followed him.
Wo went to tho boss and got our pay,
and that afternoon started for Pitts
burg, whero ho obtained a position on
ono of tho papers. I need not add
that ho never wont back to brick
making." New SlyloH in Revolvers.
"This," said an expert in firearms,
"is tho old-stylo of self-cocking revol
ver, and this is tho new." 'lho first
was a short, stout, clumsy affair of the
pepper-box stylo in vogue thirty years
ago or more. It was loaded with pow
der and ball, sent home with a ramrod,
and the hammer, a flat one, was in view
in tho usual place. You see it took per
cussion caps, and when the owner hap
pened to have any to fit it, and tho
spring was strong enough to make that
cap explode, the weapon was good for
five shots with five pulls of tho trigger.
It was a clumsy ami most unreliable
weapon. It was hard to hit anything
smaller than a barn-door at ordinary
pistol-shot distance, and when tho ob
ject was hit it was not damaged much.
Here is one a litllo more modern and a
littlo more sure. Tho hammer is out of
sight and tho trigger is ring-shaped.
This, too, was heavy, and so compli
cated that it was very liable to got out
of order. Then camo the self-cocker,
which used cartridges, but the tirst ex
periments were failures, and thoy fell
into disuse."
"What was their weak point?" asked
tho reporter.
"The spring. It did not hold its
strongth, and aftor a little use the pis
tol was apt to miss fire. That naturally
drove it out of favor at once, and very
properly. That weakness has been
overcome, and springs are now so ad-
Iusted that the shot is sure every time,
s it dangorous? Well, no, not more so
than any other kind of a pistol; and in
cases where a fraction of a second
counts, one of these is worth a bushel
of hand-cockers. They are a little more
dangerous in the hand of a nervous
man who does not intend to shoot I
have known of several cases in which
persons have escaped conviction for
murder on the ground that in their ex
citement they palled too hard on' the
trigger, and the pistol went off by Occi

Canada's Treatnie.it of the Indian.
Canadian statesmen say that the In
dians in tho States wouM not coNt any
moro than they do if congress boarded
them all at the Fifth Avenuo Hotel,
wheroas in Canada each Indian costs a
littlo loss than would keep a private in
tho army. There aro about a quarter
of a million Indians split up into littlo
bands, whose reserves aro sprinkled
over tho land like tho lakes of Maino.
Tho government keeps an account with
each band, sells for thorn what lamls
aro not wanted, and holds 13,000,000
in trust for them.
It instructs them in farming, pro
vides them with implements, seeds and
cattle, instructs their children, and
feeds all who need food with pork and
grain. Already the home farms, where
the savages were shown how to till the
soil, are rapidly being closed up, and
the rations of food are being with
drawn from one band after anothor as
the Indians manifest ability to store
and preserve their crops through the
winters. Nearly all the Indians do
something toward self-support. Some
make baskets, others make snow shoes
and toboggans, others sell furs, others
make barrels, others catch fish, and so
on. Five years ago the Blackfeet were
on the warpath. Now almost every
family has a house and farm.'
During the present session of Parlia
ment Sir John Macdonald introduced
a bill to complete their civilization and
convert them into politicians by an act
designed to "train them for the exer
cise of municipal powers." The up
shot of the whole thing, as oenator A.
W. Ogilvie put it tho other day, is that
"the United States means well, but her
agents hold that no Indian is a good
Indian except a dead Indian, while
Canada believes they are human be
ings, and that it costs less to treat them
kindly than to fight them." AT. Y. Sun.
Not a Dude.
I saw a groat crowd entering the
door of Coup's Museum, and followed.
I noticed that most of that throng wore
their spring styles, especially the men.
Men seem to have less sense in forcing
the seasons than the opposite sex. I
overheard a hundred remarks on
spring, but this is incidental to this
paragraph. I mot Coup and foil to
chatting with him about some of tho
curiosities in his Congress of Nations.
Ho directed my attention to ono of the
red men whom he had to represent the
race which is growing lazier as it
grows less. This savage seemod to be
dozing like a In zy dog, unmindful of
tho stare of his audience. I ventured
to say something about the indifference
of the chief I supposo he had been a
chief when Coup remarked that he
had never seen him evince any evi
dences of spirit but once. When he
was engaged they tried to make him
wear pants, and he would have acced
ed, perhaps, if they had bought him a
pair of hand-me-downs. "But," said
Coup, "I thought I would do him
proud, so I took him to a fashionable
tailor, who made him a pair of tight
fitting trousers of the dude cut II
never saw as mad an Indian in my life.
He tore thorn off and informed me,
through his Interpreter, that it was
humiliating enough for him to pose as
a curiosity of an almost extinct race
without wearing tight pants." I givo
it in the hope that the taste of even a
wild and untutored specimen of an un
civilized race may have some effect
But I doubt it. lie might mako a re

The Connecting Link Between Ani
mal and Vegetable Life.
Last week some cod fishermen
brought to New York a large specimen
of the actinia, which they found cling
ing to a rock off Barnegat Inlet. Prof.
Rice says it is the finest and largest
specimen he has ever seen. It was at
once placed in a tank, and the Profes
sor has been feeding it with small
pieces of meat and chopped fish. - The
sea anemone is tho connecting link
between animal and vegetable life.
The sea flower in quuatiun consists of a
stalk five inches in diameter and eight
iuches in length when extended. The
stalk is crowned with a largo number
of tentacles in a scries of circles, and
the wholo foliated so as to resemble
tho fine petals of a pink. In color it is
a palo gold. Upon the slightest touch
of the hand the flower draws in its
tentacles, shuts its mouth and flattens
down upon the rock. In the same tank
thero aro several specimens of the yel
lowish fleshy corals, or those which do
not secrete a hard skeleton. New
York Herald.
Sugar in Lumps.
In answer to a correspondent who
asks the difference between the sugar
which is sold in apparently smooth
cut lumps and other whito sugar, the
lumps of which are somewhat rough
on their surface, the New York Sun
says: The difference is considerable,
and the latter, which is pure loaf sugar,
cut into lumps, always commands a
higher price in tho wholesale market,
and cannot be adulterated. It is
called in the market "cut-loaf." The
former quality of surar is what is
known as "cubes." Tho cut-loaf su
gar is made in lunips of fifty pounds
out of cane sugar, then sawed into
slabs, and these slabs are partially cut
through and partially broke. It is
easy to distinguish the marks of cutting
and breaking on each lump. The cube
sugar is made of soft sugar and pressed
in molds, which gives the smooth ap
pearance, and is suitable for shipment
The cube sugar will sometimes on a
sea voyage resume the consistency of
the soft sugar, and the change of
form is due to adulteration.
The safest sugar for anyone to buy is
pure loaf sugar, and it is much sweeter
than any other. The principal sub
stance osed in adulterating sugar is
glucose, which is sugar made from va
rious vegetable substances, chiefly
grain. While glucose is sweet, it is
easily detected oy the expert because it
is not so sweet as cane sugar. It is,
nevertheless, very extensively used to
adulterate cane sugar and produce
cheap sugars which are sold in the
market ' Reputable dealers sell it as
glucose, but there are many, dealers
who sell glucose for sugar. The nature
of the glucose is to make a close, sticky
sugar; It does not produce grains, like
