"He was not a skilled workman, but a fgood, active helmr. and he struck me at the time as beinirono of the mo.st en- tertainiiiK and cheerful liars it had ever neeu my nieasuro to meet. One of Ins favorite tales was to the effect that lie was for three years trainer and boxing partner of the famous nuiMlist Jem Mace and had seconded the one tinin champion in to of 'his most notable battles. Ho rattled off names, places, dates and incidents iu the most offhand manner imaginable, which, as vu had no means of verifying his statements, I he was perfectly safe m doing. Of course we took what ho paid with a large grain of salt and enjoyed thawing him out. I One thins; about thn old fellow struck me as peculiar wo could never induce him under anv consideration to join in any of thy friendly little spar- j ring comers wnicli we occasionally in dulged in at thn little country hotel. after our dav's work was done.

When ho was sober, we knew there was no chance of irettinu the U loves on ! him, but ho usually got moderately full on .Saturday evenings, and wo concocted a scheme to give him an earlier start one Saturday afternoon, so that by the time nupper was over he was consider ably exhilarated. I was just out of a cymnaMuin at tho time, and was con sidered a pretty clever boxer.

'Don't be afraid to hit iue. ' And I winked at the boys and went at him. He was easier than I expected. IJis guard seemed very poor, and several tines I rapped him harder than I should, but it seemed a good plan to teach the old blowhard a good lesson. After awhile I got a bit tired of tho one sidedness of it. I regis tered about every time I found an open ing, while tho Irishman s punches were all wild and of no account. Finally I decided that we had had fun enough and made un my mind to tiive him a good chinchopper, lay him out and quit. S) I watched for an opening, and when I saw one a minute later. I aimed as heavy a blow as I could Mrike) und let "Well, say. I don't know even to this day what became of that punch, for at mat moment something struck me on the neck, and for tho next IjU seconds I experienced all of the sensations of Don Quixote when he had the mix up with tlin windmill, for that little Irishman was dancing around me and delivering undercuts, overeats, chin choppers, e,ido winders, earmutTs, straight drives and long arm body blows faster than I could feel them, whilo I pawed tho air in an attempt at defense. "I think tho boys said it was 42 sec onds before I was villi' in the coiner. limp and entiiely out, but it was three days before I was out at Work again.

That finished, he would jump up and look out to sea over the range and then scamper down from the parapet and follow us into the bomb , proof. I As usual, Uombsiiell was on hand to see the test of the new big gun. He superintended tho loading, und while 1 wan aiming the gun ho looked over the range as carefully as did the lookout, ami from his air of responsibil ity onvi might have supposed that to him had been intrusted the duty of seeing that the range was clear. 1 lint when we started for the bomb proof, instead of following us, as Was his custom, Hombsbell remained on the parapet, looking out to sea and sniffing the air. In a moment lie dashed off through the bushes which covered the narrow beach between the parapet and the sea. 1 Though thinking his actions peculiar, I was sure that he would not remain in front of the gun because he had done so once when quite young and inexperi enced, and the burning grains of powder, which are always thrown out by tho blast of a gun, had buried themselves in his skin, burning him badly. He had never forgotten this. Certain that he would take care of himself, I paid no further attention to him, but went, with the others into the bombproof and took my place by the electric key ready to lire at the com mand of tho captain.. Just as the command "Fire!"waa about to be given liombshell reappeared on the parapet and began to bark fu riously inttthe very muzzle of the gun. I called to him, but he would not come. Annoyed at tho delay of the test, I tried to catch him, but could not do so. As I approached he retreated, still barking and apparently urging me to follow him. Finally, convinced frotn the dog's ac-; tions that something was wrong, tho j electric wire was disconnected from tho j gun, and I followed Bombshell. Wag- ! giug his tail with iov at bavins aceom- I plished his object, be led me through the underbrush to tho beach.

Professor Sully, in an article in Tho Popular Science Monthly, commenting on the jealous regard for ceremony and the proprieties of behavior as seen in the enforcement of rules of politeness by children, cites a delightful instance that fell under his own observation as he was walking on Hampstead heath. "It was a spring day, and the fat buds of the chestnut were bursting into mag nificent green plumes. Two well dressed 'misses,' aged, I should say, about 0 and ll, were taking their correct morn ingwalk. Tho elder called the attention of the younger to one of the trees, point ing to it. Tho younger exclaimed in a highly shocked tone, 'Oh, Maud, you know you shouldn't point!' The notion of pniH't rating a rudeness on the chest nut tree was funny enough. Hut the in cident is instructive as illustrating the childish tendency to stretch and gener alize rules to tho utmost." Tlie Gulf Stream. Remarking upon some of the geo graphical charts now available to thy student of physical science, it is pointed out by a writer that elsewhere in the Aorld there is not so majestic a flow of water as the gulf stream, a remarkable body having its headquarters in tho gulf of Mexico, from thence flowing northeasterly along the shores of the United States to the banks of New foundland. Then, rushing across the Atlantic ocean to the Uritish isles, it is divided into two currents, one flowing northward to the Atlantic ocean, the other southward to the Azores, and the velocity ot this immense rlow being also more rapid than that of the Mississippi at New Orleans or even of the Amazon at 100 miles above its mouth. Phenom enal, too, is the fact that, although its bed and banks are cold water, yet the vast stream is tery warm, and so great is the absence of affinity or commin gling bet ween these waters that their lino of junction is distinctly visible to the eye. Further, the waters of this won-, derful stream do not in any part of their, course touch the bottom of the sea. They are defended at the bottom and sides by what has been termed a trough of cold water, one of the best nonconductors. Consequently very little heat is lost, and the warm water is carried thou sands of miles, losing only four degrees of heat on the journey from the gulf of Mexico to the Uritish isles. , Open Car Window, A correspondent writing of open car windows and the disagreeable draft from the same suggests that screen? similar to those used in sleeping cars be provided for coach windows, and that only trainmen be allowed to place or re move them. A lady writing to the same paper suggests original tactics by the person annoyed : "Simply raise your umbrella or para sol in front of yon, so that tho wind, cinders, dust and smoke blow from your umbrella on the back of the neck of the person who sits by the window in front of yon. A very few minutes huffice to convince this person that the wind is blowing harder than he thought and is very disagreeable and uncomfortable. So down goes the window, and also the umbrella, with a quiet smile of grati tude and content, with the result of self protection." New York Tribune. MI'S. N. C. MILLtlR. ( Tor'. War.'..

One of them last we k accosted a gentleman in this city. He was ragyed, dirty, good naturcd, evidently hungry enough to eat a cow if it were in his way. Hut his foft tdouchiness tjf gait rendered any iictivn xertinn cm his part highly im probable. This impression was strength ened by the dialogue that followed: "fioud morning, sir," said he. "I'd like a job with you, sir. " "Well, there is not much doing just lowhardly anything, in fact, in my line. I couldn't give you much to do. I Couldn't keeji you busy."

I believe that if a pastor of a fashion- 1 able church were to denounce any partic j ular play as positively immoral it would ! very soon disappear from the stage. A very large percentage of the ordinary playgoers ate communicants of the churches, and a well considered con-, demnation of a play would certainly in jure its popularity. "Christian people" would not think' it "respectable" to sit through a play which had been con demned by their smiiiual nastors. All j that is needed is a little more minis terial courage with regard to the stage, and it will very soon be seen that the pulpit really possesses more power in this direction than it ever had in the history of the modern drama. One thing is certain if the stage is left to its ow n devices, it will become a fruitful source of injury to the moral well being of the nation. Kev. Thomas P.

According to his plan, the criminal would be carried to a cell, which can be filled noiselessly with car bolic acid in gaseous form from floor to ceiling. When the gas reaches the.de linquent's mouth and nose it causes in tdant paralysis of the lungs and uncon ciousness, and life departs without pre vious pain. 1 The Whole World tt War. i The whole world is at war not the war of armies or fleets, but none tho less war.

Mr.ititr.i.i,- SaJd to IJ Greatly Superior to th KnglUh Hare For That I'urpone. The pport of rabbit coursing is receiv ing a new iipetfu siuco the Kansas black tailed jack rabbit has entered the arena. Not until quite recently has the coursing fraternity been aware fjf the great superiority of the jack over tho cotton tail rabbit or tho English hare for this purpose. Kansas jack rabbits are now greatly in demand, both in this country and in England, and live ones command a good price. The difficulty in catching them alive is very great, and only one man in Kansas, hi far as known, has given his undivided atteu tion to the work. Charles Payne, familiarly know throughout tho west as u hunter and plainsman, has been a jack rabbit en thusiast for years, and it is largely through his efforts that the merits of the animal for coursing purposes have be come so generally recognized. The cap turo of live jacks involves tho purchase of a great deal of expensive parapher nalia. Mr. Payne has two nets made of fieine twine, o feet in height, which, when both are extended, reach almost I across a section, and made expressly for catching live jacks. His method of en trapping the live jacks is unique. It ia his usual custom, when preparing for tho raid ujkhi the rabbits, to advertise among the farmer boys the day upon ! which the jack rabbit drive is to take place. At tho appointed time hundreds of i country boys, mounted on ponies, flock to the rendezvous, armed with fog horns, drums, bells and anything else that will make discordant music. They are de ployed in a semicircular line tw o mi lei in front of the net, und at a given (sig nal from the marshal of thodaythe line moves toward the net, each man making all the noise possible. If the hunting grounds have been well selected, the horsemen will have no trouble in "bouncing" rabbits innumerable, and as they scamper away toward the net, followed pellmell by tho eager farmer boys, tho scene is one of great anima tion. Tho rabbits, if they do not beoomo confused by tho noise and excitement, bound away toward tho net at almost lightning speed, and many of them strike the net so hard that they break their necks. Those that survive the shock scamper into the pockets which are in geniously arranged for their reception, and for them the jig is up. Kabbits sometimes die of fright, not having suf ficient strength to make the race for life. These rabbit drives are among the most popular sports in which the prairie farmers indulge, and it is customary for the organizer of tho drive to provide a bounteous spread for his gratuitous helpers. Philadelphia Times. Not a Soldier. A certain solicitor general of Eng land visited Herlin on a vacation, and being mistaken for bearing a military title was invited to a review and mount ed on a charger. Heing accustomed to following the hounds, he made an ex cellent equestrian, but when asked opin ions as to some of the maneuvers was obliged to parry the cross examination. A similar incident befell the late Mar hall Indwell, an eminent New York lawyer, in the fifties, who visited Paris in long vacation.
