TIGERS AND TELEGRAPHS.
Tlie Remarkable Report of a Clerk in an Indian Railroad Ofliee. London Telegraph. The Hindoo clerk of a railroad office in India, has made a remarkable offi cial report. He begins the communi cation with a formal petition for “two guns, required for our protec tion from tigers, one of which was killed in ray telegraph office at 3 o’clock,” and then goes on to explain: “I have the honor to inform you that no sooner had No. 2 down mixed train from Calcutta crossed the point No. 1 than we saw a tiger about three yards in length and two yards in height come running from the north to outh along the fencing and enter a thick bush just opposite the point No. 1 ” This breezy definition of a tiger’s dimensions in which the length and height is given in yards, is a delightful touch, but the clerk was not daunted by its size, for “ with great difficulty and research I found the village gun, and after a gang of men had amassed I tried to turn him out of the bush and kill him. I suc ceeded in turning him out, but missed the aim of gun at half pasi 8.” That the sportsman should have thought it necessary to consult the office clock to see the exact time when the gun went off would make it seem as if its going off at all were considered a great feat. However, the tiger did not seem to regard it with much attention, for we read that it went into another hush “about twenty-five yards off the front of mv office.” Business now called me off the assailants. “No. 1 up train” came along and had to be attended to. after which office details kept the ste ff busy “till the departure of No, 4 down goods.” But the tiger all this time remained in his bush, cooly waiting, as it were, for the com mencement of the second inning. The game was reopened by our Hindoo sending some of the villagers to recon noiter the bush and holding a council of war. Before this was concluded up came “No. 3 mixed train,” and the noises that the engine made when drawing up at the station upset the tigers equanimity, and it tried to make off down the line. But unfor tunately for it, there were now three Englishmen on the spot—the guard and driver of the train and the post office superintendent, who happened to be that way. On learning what was the matter, they cut off the ani mal’s retreat, which the clerk and villagers had apparently been at tempting to do, and made it turn. With men oh one side and a train on the oilier, the tiger was for a moment puzzled, but—to continue the native’s letter—“he all of a sudden jumped over t he fencing wire and entered my office, and jumping over the ticket cupboard and look a seat thereupon. I got the doors locked up immediate ly, not allowing him to came outside again. The country gun was ready again, and the postoffice superintend ent took it; and since there were no bullets here at the time, four copper c*>ins, broken into sixteen pieces, were all loaded into the gun, with gun powder, During the interval the tiger twice took a walk over the office counter, but seeing no way out he again took his seat on the same- cup board.” And here he was shot “by the postoffice superintendent with the gun prepared as aforesaid.” The let ter concludes with a repetition of the original petition: “ This is a regular jungle, where we have nothing to pro tect ourselves from such wild beasts generally frequenting any office. I tnerefore hope you will kindly ar range to send me the two guns and oblige,” Vil lard’s Change of Residence. Troy Times. One of the most remarkable per sonal movements of the present day is Henry Yillard’s resumption of a residence in his native land. It is now said that he will make Berlin his future home, and it is probable that he will, to a partial degree at least, enter the government service. His knowledge of American affairs would render him of the highest use to Bis marck, while he could add to this a luera ive banking business—having the confidence of both continents. This prospective change shows how easily the best calculation yields to circumstances. A year ago Yillard was at the head of one of the grandest American enterprises, and felt so as sured of success that he gave that splendid excursion which must long stand unrivaled. He was then esti mated at five millions, and was build ing a house whose cost was figured at a half million. His name was daily paragraphed, and went the rounds of the press with all the applause due to one who had conquered the greatest obstacles and given success to an en terprise which in the hands of Jay Cooke had proved so great a failure. How rapidly this brilliant display was followed by misfortune! Then came the sad news of a general col lapse, and Henry Yillard soon sank beyond hope of recovery. He was the first of that remarkable series of failures which has given such fearful distinctness to the present season. More cases of the superstition which wraps the masses of Italians and French come f o light as the cholera epidemic continues. Doctors are pre vented from visiting patients or are even attacked with knives, under the supposition that they are bent on thinning the population by poison. The peasants, who see so many victims die under medical treatment, imagine that with the entrance of the doctor, as with the celebration of the last sac rament, all hope of life must be given up, and so ihey prefer to fight the dis ease in their crude superstitious fash ion. Medical enlightenment is sadly needed everywhere, but nowhere more than in those countries where religion Uas for ages been the ally of ignorance. Mr. H. Meyer, the archaeologist, writes to the New York Evening Post from Nicaragua: “I have, in my archaeological excavations on the island of Zapatera, made a rather in teresting discovery. About forty-two feet under the surface of an ancient cemetery (four feet vegetable soil, fifteen feet volcanic ashes, seven feet vegetable soil, sixteen feet volcanic ashes) I discovered a rock which, judging from the figures it contains, has served in remote times for astrono mical observations. On this rock I found two stone tablets, one of which contains a representation of the world; part of Africa and Asia united Europe and this Continent; a large continent is situated in the At lantic Ocean, which I consider to b* the mythical lost Atlantis, mentioned in some of the ancient authors. The other tablet contains inscriptions of which part is undoubtedly Phoenician. Owing to the rainy season I have for the present suspended work on Zaoa tera, and am engaged on the island of Ometepe, where it is possible to exca vate on account of the soil. . . The volcano of Ometepe, which open ed last year, is continually working; its thunder and roaring is sometimes frightful; yet part of the people, who last year left the island, have returned to GEMS OF THOUGHT. The best and most important part of a man’s education is that which he gives himself. Scholars are frequently to be met with who are ignorant of nothing save their own ignorance. If you are determined to live and die slave to a custom, see that it is at least a good one. In the literary as well as military world, most powerful abilities will often be found concealed under a rus tic garb. “In the sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat thy bread. ” This is a curse which has proved a blessing in dis guise. He that, to the best of his power, has secured the final stake,has a peren nial fountain of joy within him A plain, genteel dress is more ad mired, and obtains more credit, than lace and embroidery in the eyes of the judicious and sensible. The beauty of the face is a frail possession, a short-lived flower, only attached to the mere epidermis, but that of the mind is innate and un changeable. There is a key that will open every lock, if he knows how to forget it; and, so with life, there is a right path for every one if they will only search to find it. The memory ought to be a store room; many turn theirs, rather, to a lumber room. Even stores grow moldy, and spoil, unless aired and used betimes, and then they, too, be come lumber. Flowers and fruits are always fit presents; flowers, because they are proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. These gay natures contract with the somber countenance of ordinary nature ; they are like music heard out of a work-house. The superstition connected with the horseshoe is supposed to have ils rße in the hal> which is made to surround the heads of saints in pictures hung upon the walls of churches. The halos were often made of shiny metal, in the form in which one may see in old engravings. In the course of time the colors of the picture faded, leav ing the metal, which, was shaped al most exactly like a horseshoe. it L E ' M N(iS. • Coons have been ravaging the chicken coops and corn-fields in Lolland and Fairfield counties, Ct.

A nice, fresh young dude was in vited into the country to spend a few days at a plain farmer’s to secure a needed relaxation without excitement. He was aesthetic and accomplished, but his friends watched him the first morning of his arrival and the cows didn’t eat him. He was safe at din ner time (12 o’clock), and taking his place at the table he watched the lady of the house carving a chicken. She noticed h ; m, and to relieve the embarrassment inquired: “Um, Mr. Fitzclarence, do you carve?” “Aw, I beg yeah pahdon,” he re plied, startled from hisrevery, “I didn't do anything. I only asked if you carved.” “Beg pahdon, no, I never ac quiahed the accomplishment, you knaw, but I paint rawthaw well, you knaw, on chinaw, faw an amatah, and I pwopwse taking cahving lessons at the auihdemy this wintaw, you knaw,” The poor lady let the knife slip, and Mr. Fitzclarence had to be taken out to the horse-t rough to get the gravy off his clothes. A FRUITLESS SEARCH. A Lous; and Unavailing Hunt for Hidden Treasure, A queer character known as “Old John” Eberhardt was found dead re cently on the ferry road, near the cemetery, in Camden, N. J. He had spent his life in searching for money, which he ffiarmed had been hidden somewhere by his mother. His story, told in The Philadelphia Times, is as follows: For some weeks after his mother's death Eberhardt said nothing about his fortune, but appeared uneasy and drank heavily. One morning, about two months after her death, he was seen closely examining the ground of the garden in front of the Linden Street house where he and his mother had lived. Tiie lease ran out shortly afterward, and the landlord found to his surprise, that it could not be re newed, as his tenants could not pay the rent. Soon afterward in his cups he told his story, which has since been common property in Camden: “Mother had queer notions,” he ssid, “about money. Although she had plenty, which was left her by my father, who kent a general store in Herkimer, N. Y. She was always afraid of becoming poor. On this ac count she kept a little piece of land in the outskirts of Oriskany until near the year of her death, it was wholly unproductive and the taxes were an annual drain, but she said that if we lost everything besides we could go there and raise enough from the soil to live on. “Finally the year before she died she lost all faith in investments and securities of all kinds, and, as I believe, converted all she had, amounting to about $63,000, into cash. She hid that somewhere and drew from it for our household expenses and what monsy 1 wanted, but where she did hide it I never knew, although she tried to tell me when she died—she vtas taken very suddenly with apoplexy and never spoke—l believe I never will know. Of course, I looked all through the house, in every closet and desk and cupboard, not only for the money but for any paper that might give a clew ro its investment if it were not hid den about the house, but it was gone,” Eberhardt’s story was so naturally and forcibly told that at first many people believed it. The owner of the house, Geo. Q. Sears, permitted the digging up of the garden flower-beds, gravel walks, grass plats, and all in the search for the huned treasure. The new tenants of the place also let a long-haired seventh son with a divin ing-rod loose over the place at Eber hardt’s request. It was no use. the hazel rod wouldn’t turn down. Some one else lent him the $lO necessary for the divining-rod experiment. After this, which was half a year after bis mother’s death, the man seemed to loose his mental hold on the gr.at belief of his life. His search was extended from the garden into the street, and once it is said, though it is so long ago that no one vouches positively for the story, he was arrest ed and loc up, aflei a week’s feeble excavation with a stick, for digging a hole in which a butcher’s horse had broken his knee, His small means, his scant credit and most of the charity called forth by his story, were ex hausted in a year’s time, and since then he has been regarded, generally in Camden, as a pauper idiot. That there has been much light on his mind, clnuded by his great mis fortune or hallucination, no one whe has seen him of late years could be lieve. He was ragged and stooped, wivh. a frowsy gray beard, and went a bout on a continual poke with a knot ted stick, that forever scratched in dust, mud, or snow, for the buried treasure. His research had led him as far out of town as Riverside. How or where he has lived of late no one seems clearly to know. Domestic Habits of China. China is the country of long 1 tresses and short feet; a country where tea is drank without miik or sugar and where two iittle ivory sticks, skill fully bandied between the finger and thumb, replace the fork and spoon; a country where you call the first man you meet your elder brother; where to ask a shoemaker his address it is necessary to inquire “what noble palace” he inhabits; a country where the creditor has the right to make an insolvent debtor pay his bill with a piece of his flesh, and where the debtor, by way of revenge, hangs himself at his creditor’s door; a coun try where the son ruins himself to buy a coffin for his dead father, and, covered with a hempen garment, walks backwark as he follows his sumptuous funeral; a country where people work for their rice instead of working for their bread, but which is of earth and not of lacquer-work and porcelain; and where, as in other countries, the husband loves his wife and the orange colored mother loves her slant-eyed children. It is a country, moreover, wher the bride attaches great importance to the personal appearance of the bridesgroom, and the bridesgroom equal importance to the moral quali ties of the bride; and the basis of many Chinese dramas, as of dramas in other parts of the world, is the pas sion of love. Women have been for bidden to appear on the stage since the days when a celebrated actress in spired the Emperor with a fatal cap rice. The men who undertake female xs well as male parts, play with good expression, and use a superabundance of gestures, some of which, though derived from the observation of real ity, have at last acquired a purely conventional value. An actor who, pivoting on his left foot, makes a cir cular movement with his right, is un derstood to be getting on horseback. To cut the air with a riding whip is to indicate, through the connection o: cause with effect, a galloping pace. The exhibition of pieces of gold cloth with wheels painted on them has almost an arbitrary meaning, and signifies that the Emperor is com ing. Etiquette is rigidly observed. A young girl walking in the street must not turn her head round; nor at home is she to glance slyly at visitors. She is to remember, moreover, that girls Nho are always laughing and talking are not esteemed, and tfiat virtuous women have been honored from the earliest times. The philosopner Mendze grieved when he saw ~his mother break her shuttle; the woman Tsoun threw herself on to the sword in order to save her husband's life; the mother of Ao, being so poor that she could not buy writing materials, taught her son to read by tracing characters in tne sand. Women should be able to road, write and use the counting machine, so as to be in a position to direct a household. They should read books of piety and stories of morality in action, while avoiding lovcpoelry, songs and anecdotes. Women should be reserved; and they are cruelly enjoyed never *o occupy themselves with other people’s affairs. Men ought never to talk of domestic matters, while women should never talk of anything else. When a visitor is in the drawing room the lady of the house shou'd n-. ver be heard raising her voice in the kitchen. Women are not to paint their faces ad wear striking colors, for the insufficient reason that if they do men will look at them. Young women, as well as young men, are to be dutiful to their parents, and always in a good humor, even when their father and mother are not. China is, in short, a country of primitive manners and morals, very simple, tranquil and pictures que. Milwaukee Sl Northern RAILROAD.
