Both Hands Rusy.
- A negro in Alabama was brought up for
stealing a pair of chickens, but declared, sol
emnly, that ho "didn't steal dern or fowls,"
declaring on the other hand, that the com
plainant had beaten him brutally with a
"Cut," said tho judge, "you're twice as
large and fctrong as he is, why didn't you
defend yourself f"
"Why, jedge, see hyar; I had a chicken in
each hand, an' what's two raw chickens agin'
a club?" Lifo.
A Splendid Fata Morgana.
In Vidovcc, a Hungarian village near
Warasdin, the belief of an approaching
war has seized hold of the entire popula
tion. A splendid fata morgana was ob
served during three successive, days on
the wide plains around the village. Enor
mous divisions of infantry with scarlet
caps could be distinctly seen moving in
the plains and performing exercises to
the word3 of command of a colossal chief,
whose sword was seen Hashing in the air.
The phenomenon lasted several hours,
and finally tho soldiers disappeared in
midair. Tho people stood awestruck in
great crowds, and observed every move
ment of the phantom soldiers with breath
less attention. Two gendarmes after
ward went in tho direction of the scene
of action to see if any traces could be
found, but of eourso in vain. The phe
nomenon is believed to have been a re
flection of some infantry divisions man
euvering at some miles' tlistance. Boston
Skeleton of a "Giant."
Not longer ago than 184G a mastodon
skeleton was exhibited in New Orleans rs
that of a giant. The cranium was made
of rawliide, fantastic wooden teeth were
fitted in the jaws, all missing parts were
restoi'ed after the human model, and the
whole raised upon the hind legs. It cer
tainly conveyed the notion of "a hideous,
diabolical giant, ' ' and was no doubt re
sponsible for many nightmares. As a
sad commentary on the state of the med
ical profession in the southwest at that
time, it may le added that the exhibitor
was perfectly honest in his belief, and to
support his l?lief lie had a trunk full of
physicians' certificates that these were
human bones. Prof. W. B. Scott in
Mr. Crowley's Awful Habit.
Two members of the Union club went
to the Central Park menagerie the other
day, and by sxx-ial favor were permitted
to watch Mr. Crowley, the chimpanzee,
eat his dinner. Mr. Crowley, as every
body knows, sits at his own little table
and uses a knife, fork and napkin. After
watching the monkey for some time, one
of the club men turned to the other and
said in tones of horror:
"Baw Jawve. he spw.eads his napkin
on both knees, ye know."
Thexi they left ih disgust. New York
"As lale as Death."
Here is a passage taken from a feuil
leton now running in The Temps of
Paris: "A great tumult was heard near
them. Ewuia was seized with emotion,
and her heart &hrobled within her. Mine.
Bauge had thrown herself into the arms
of the negro, who kissed her ardently.
He was as pale as death!" This deserves
a place in the same collection as Ponsoii
du Ten-all's famous line: Ah! Ah!J he
exclaimed in Portuguese." New York
An Interesting iHscovery.
Mr. J. "W. AValker has discovered on
tho south side of Pine mountain, Georgia,
nearly 200 feet alove the famous corun
dum mine, a site where the ancient in
habitants of that region manufactured
their talc vessels for cooking. Evidences
of the use of stone implements in the
work are indubitable. The vessels were
blocked out and hollowed before leing
broken from the ledge. Boston Herald.
