A Brave Russian General.
A war correspondent writes: “In the
dead of night that extraordinary fellow,
Gen. JSkobelofl 1 , the younger, turned up
in Prince Schackosky’s headquarters.
He is the stormy petrel of the Russian
army. If I were riding along a road in
a given direction in expectation of see
ing a fight, and if I chanced to meet the
General riding in an opposite direction,
without any inquiry or any hesitation 1
would wheel my horse and ride in the
General’s tracks, in the full assurance
that 1 was doing the best thing for my
self and your readers. He is in the
thick of everything. In the gray dawn
of the morning of the crossing I shook
hands with him on the edge of the Dan
ube, after the bayonet charge in which
he had taken part. His face was black
with powder, and he, General as he is,
carried a soldier’s rifle with the bayonet
fixed. He was in the fighting at the
Sc ipka, and led the first column which
tra versed that pass. There seemed some
prospect of quietude for some days on
the other side of the Balkans, and the
Plevna expedition offered a prospect of
fighting. The General is unattacned,
and can roam from flower to flower,
from one fighting ground to another.
He is, I sometimes think, a little mad,
but a man of real value in a warfare such
as this. It would be embarrassing if
every General was a Skobeloff; but a
few Skobelofts scattered up and down
through a great army have their uses.
They generally end by getting shot, and
earn a short memoir and a good many
decorations. But 1 hope it will be a
long time before Skobeloff meets his in
evitable doom, for he is a right good
fellow, and a staunch comrade. He
came to us from Baron Krudender’s
headquarters, with instructions that he
should assume a temporary command of
Col. Tutolmin’s brigade of Circassian
who have also been attached
to this expedition, and execute a recon
noissance in the direction of Lovca. He
rode off in the darkness, and after riding
fifty miles, returned with the tidings
that Lovca was held by five battalions
of Turkish infantry, and its rayon in
fested by Circassians and Bashi-Ba
zouks.”
A Singular Family.
From the Calvert Central Texan.
Living near Englewood, in this county,
is a family of father, mother and twelve
children, and remarkable to state, they
count 1128 fingers and toes as naturally
belonging to them. Each of the twelve
children has twenty-four, fully develop
ed, but the parents only have forty be
tween them. Prof. Hungleford, formerly
of Calvert, but recently teaching at
Englewood, had several of these chil
dren as scholars. One day, during,
recitation, one of this family was told to
count his fingers with a view of impress
ing some number upon his mind. The
child announced that the number was
twelve. The teacher said the Returning
Board was endeavoring to practice fraud,
and bull-dozed the little fellow into
another count. The result was the same.
“ Come here,” said the now irate teach
er, “ and let me count your fingers.”
His numbering corresponded with the
child’s for on each hand he found five
fingers and a thumb. This freak is all
well enough to excite the curious to gaze
on, but it appears to us these extra digits
might have been placed on other hands
without additional trouble. The extra
ordinary family hails from Canada.
W hat Women Owe to Men.
From the Omaha Bee.
The success of women upon the
modern forum and in the bureaus of
journalistic correspondence leads us to
wonder why it is that in all the domestic
departments where woman has had such
a tine opportunity to acquaint herself
with its wants and methods, that she lias
never inaugurated any improvement,
and left it to men. Yes, to these inferior
men to invent and perfect them. Our
modern commodious, self-rocking cradles,
fine cooking-stoves, sewing-machines,
knitting-machines and washing-machines
have been invented and improved by
men. The modern baking powder, so
much used in cooking, aye, even the aj>-
pliances which quiet the little ones, viz.,
the soothing milk bottle, with all its
modern rubber patent attachments, are
the inventions of men. In the face of
all this, how women can claim superiority
wc cannot comprehend. Considering
that Eve was such a remarkable talker,
it is strange that even the automation
talking machines which have been in
vented at times have been done by men.
There is only one department which men,
to their credit be it said, have not im
proved upon—that is, Eve’s extensive
patent of “story telling.”
An Auctioneer’s Hits.
Of John Keese, the witty New York ,
book auctioneer, a biographer tells the
following among numerous anecdotes
equally amusing; Knocking down a
“ Hand-book,” he added, for the com
fort of the purchaser, “ You will see
that it is pretty well fingered.” “Dam
aged, you say? yes—a little wet on the
outside—but you will find it dry enough
within.” On another occasion he par
ried this word “damaged” quite hap-1
pily. A young son of a highly respect
able Episcopal clergyman was a privi
leged attendant at the auction room. '
Keese offered a soiled or injured copy of
“ Book of Common Prayer.” “ Isn’t it
damaged?” exclaimed the youth; upon
which Keese turned round to him slowly
and fixing his attention upon him with
great gravity, in a tone of soberness and
solemnity, addressed him, “Has your
father taught you to regard that as a
damaged book?”

A Singular Fact.
A correspondent of the London Note*
and (Juerie* quotes from Burckhardt a
curious fact in connection with Egyptian
art. The author says: Among the in
numerable paintings and sculptures in
the temples and tombs of Egypt, I never
met with a single representation of a
camel, At Thebes, in the highest of the
tombs, on the side of the Diehil Habow,
called AM el Gome, which has not, I
believe, been mentioned by former trav
elers, or by the French in their great
work, I found all the domestic animals
of the Egyptians represented together in
one large painting upon a wall, forming
the most interesting work of the kind
which I saw in Egypt. A .-hepherd con
ducts the whole herd into the presence
of his master, who inspects them, while
a slave is noting them down. Yet even
' here I looked in vain for the camel.
