HeNHY t'LiY AND the GOAT.?Tue fol
lowing anecdote of Henry Clay is again gc
irg the round-" of ihe press:
As he came out of the Capito! at Wash?
ington one day, seeing a frightened woman
in the Btreet trying to ward ofl'tho attacks
of a Bportive goat, ne gallantly, in spile of
his year.-and offiju, neiz )d the goat by He
bort s The woinao thanked him nnd sped
hurriedly cn Mr. Clay would hav^ liked
to move on also, but the goat had Us own
views abou: the interference with bis inno?
cent amusement. As soon as the woman's
deliverer loosened his hold on the two horns
the animal rose majestically on bis bind legB
and prepared for a charge. In his own de?
fense Mr. Clay now took the animal as be?
fore by the horns and thus for a lime they
stood, while ? crowd of street boys gathered
about, immensely amused at the unusual
spectacle of a Senator end a goat pitted one
against the other in a public street. As
long as Mr. Clay held the goat by the borns
all was well ; but the moment the quadru?
ped was free, cams a fresh preparation for a
charge. Not a boy ottered assistance, but
after a whi.'e one ventured to make a ?ug
"Throw the billy down, sir."
Mr. Clay at once accepted and adopted
the report of that committee, and tipping
the goat up essayed to pass on. Before he
could fairiy turn away, however, the gjat
was up in a lofty preparation for a new
charge. Mr. Clay gave his enemy the floor
once more and turned to his new adviser.
"What shall I do now?"
"Cut and run like the devil," replied the
Key East's Ghost ?A dispatch from As
hurv Park, N. J., saye : "Tbe identity of
the Key East ghost that has been disturbing
this vicinity for the past two years has at

Phoebe Van Dewa'er, who is at present re?
siding with her uncle, Mr. Lee, at Key East.
During the past two years people travelliag
on tbe road from K>y Eist to As bury Park
have from time to timo seen an object clad
in white on a fence, staring at tbem. Last
Friday night, as a party of young, men were
wending their way homeward, they beheld
the object and became so frightened that
?hey at once took to their heels. Soon they
halted and hurriedly agreed to return and
ascertain the cause of their fright, but when
within a few feet of tbe object it advanced
toward them aud they aeaio fl^d. Another
party returning on the same road were met
by the 'ghost' and being negroes they scat

Latest Trick in Thieving.?The Na
tionul City Bank (if Brooklyn received a (el
ephone message shortly before noon Moo ?
day which they supposed came from Ciapp
Bros., grocers, at 979 Fulton street. Some
one telephoned to the cashier that there was
a check ou the way to the bank: for $750, and
that it would be presented by a reliable dis?
trict telegraph messenger boy. If they
would cash it they would oblige Clapp Bros.
Not long after tbe boy appeared, and as tbe
check appeared to be g- nuine it was cashed.
A man met the boy at Clapp's door, and
when tbe boy returned with the money and
delivered it to the man the latter did not
enter Clapp's, but walked down tbe street.
Tbe boy became suspicious, and, entering
tbe store, explained tbe errand he had been
on, and the firm then learned that a forgery
had been committed. The boy and some
members of the firm then went in pursuit of
tbe forger, but he had disappeared. The
boy furnished a description of- the forger,
and the police were put on his track. Ciapp
Brothers sent to the bank at once and found
two or three other checks there which had
been forged, and they amounted in all to
