Such a Mother Wouldn't Answer in thii Country, Qikcn Victoria allows nonoof lier children to K8 ker without special wwlo, ami it takes ai much red tape fee stie of her children to got au oudleseo with hr w it does for a to tal stranger. Wo don't sco how ho can raUo a family that way. What would, a boy do If ho had a stono bruIteTeri his heel, add wanted to go to hi? ma, or suppose oae of tho princeaj should eat grees apples and get the colic, he wouldn't want to sit down on tho doorstep with his depart merit of tho interior tied up in a double bow knot, wailing to get an audience with his mother, to get some peppermint sling. Thcro are times when a loy wants to see his ma real ijulck whether sho is a queen or a nine spot, and to stand him oil for any red tape is dangerous. Suppose ono of her girls goes out to an ico cream saloon with a tellow, and ho proposes to her, and is going right away on a trrin and wants an answer right oil. If tho girl has to wait till her turn comes to soo her ma, sho u liable to loso ncr chanco of getting married. A mother should bo ready at all times to sco her children. A nowstvancr to bo successful must consider the tastes and wants of many kinds of people Its field, therefore, is a broad oue. It is not expected that every one who takes a nowipaper will read or bo interested in every thing that is published, and tho only limit to tho publisher of a general newspaper, is that of decency. It is due to cvey rospectablo person who takes a paper that its columns shall nol be, in part or largely, filled with nastiiiMit; but oulsido of this the field is a broad one, and over) part of it must havo attention. To mako up a paper for any sjvecial class of readers would Iw an eii-y task; hut to prepnro it fur tho various classes rIkjvo tho level ofthoso who prefer filth to any Ihiftg eko, is a far inoro difficult un dertaking; yet this is what tho mana ger?, rtf first class paper nro expect ed to ilo, niul what they aim to nc couiplMi. The bravest loys aro not alwaje thoeo that aro ready to fight. Hero is tho .story of ono who showed tho righV spirit when provoked by his comrades: A.J6oT boy was attending school one day with a large patch on the knee ot one of his trousers. One of tho schoolmates made fun of him for this, and called him '-Old Patch." "Why don't you fight him?" cried ono of the boys. ''I'd give it to him it ho called mo so." "Oh," said tho boy, "you don't suppose I'm ashamed of my patch, do you? For my part, I'm thankful for a good mother to keep mo out of rags. I'm proud of my patch for her sake" This was uoblo. That !oy had tho courage that would mako him success ful in tho struggle ot lifo. Wo must havo courago in our strugglo if we hopo to come out right. 'The crew of the life-saving station at Spring Lako recently discovered in the undertow near tho station houso n huge fish, which thoy succeeded in killing. The fish which measured over U feet and weighed 800 pounds, was seut to tho Smithsonian Iustitu tion. Prof, liaird states that tho fish represents a specimen novcr beforo seen in the United States or even in tho Atlantic Ocean. It bclougs, tho Professor says, to u group of small sperm whales characterized by tho ab sence ot permanent teeth in tho upper jaw, and is ouo of tho greatest acquis, tions to tho National Museum. Hampton Institute for the instruc tion of negroes and Indians opened fifteen years ago with 15 scholars and 2 teachers. Thcro aro now GOO color ed studonts, 100 Indians and GO teach ers. Their school property, at Hamp ton Holds, Vu., includes wort wpe and farm, and is valued at 8350,000. The boys and girls receive a good edu cation, aro taught trades and are fitted for teachers.

For rale I.7 M (MIcAllattr. Hearr Cnglne. Tho monster locomotivo, "Jumbo," from tho Cook Works, Trenton, N. J., ii now nt tho exposition building, Chicago, and will bo on oxlhition in tho main hnll during tho railway ex position there. Tho locomotivo is tho largest in tho world, weighing just 79 tons. So massivo and grand is this machioo that to look upon it impress es ono with awo nnd amazement. By t!io sido of this monster, resting on a solid silver disc, will bo exhibited tho smallest perfect cngino in tho world, being but six inches in length, coin plcto and perfect in ovcry detail. An other miniature locomotivo to bo ex hibited is that niado by J. D. Denton, a cripplo, of Providcnco, II. I. This littlo beauty, (the cngino) of solid gold and silver, eighteen inches in length, is fixed stationary to its track and has a perfect motion. It has a concealed music box and plays twelve tunes when in motion. Aside from six of the oldest locomotives in the world, including the "Rocket," tho very old est, thero will ho on exhibition tho first locomotive that ever pulled a train out of Chicago, which was over tho Chicago . Galena Union Hall way, now a division of the Chicago it Northwestern. This machino is being put in shape for exhibition at the Northwestern company's shop. The "Old Tolm Hull" which U without a doubt tho first locomotivo over run in this country, now an attraction of the Smithsonian Institute, has also been secured lor tho exposition. Milwau kee Scntcnel. Accepted the Loan, A bcnovolcnt-lookinc ecntloman stood on tho steps of tho Continental Hotel tho other day, chowing a tooth pick in a contemplative manner. A small boy, attired in a pair of trousers turned up at tho bottoms, a very dingy shirt and a pair of shoes that were ev idently made for tho Chinoso giant, approached him, and with a piteous whine besought thobeuovolent-Ioakiug man to buy a nowspaper from a small bundlo ho carried, alleging that he Was "stuck wid 'em," Tho gentleman ro moved his toothpick, nnd remarked in n voice full of human kindness, "I should ho glad to relievo your embar rassment, but I haven't a cent about me." "If )ou haven't n cent," respouded tho ragged Iwy, with incfl'abla scorn in his tone, "I'll lend you one;" at tho s.-uno timo extending the coin in 'his dirty paw. Tholwncvolcnt gentleman reached for it, looking nt it a moment, nnd then rcinnrking: 'Thank you, my lad," drnpticd it into his pocket nnd disapjcared within tho hotel, leaving tho newsboy a prey to rago and Htuiicfuction. Phila. Press. Thcro nro a great many times, truth fully says ono of our contemporaries, when a gluo pot in tho houso is a "well spring of pleasuie,"and is au economical investment, especially when one of tho kind here described: liuy nt a tin shop ouo small tin cup, costing five cents, and a larger ono, costing about ten, in which tho small er ono can bo set; five or six cents-' worth of gluo will mend a great ma ny broken articles, or will fasten tho things thnt have become uuglued. Put tho glue iu tho small cup with a littlo water; put boiling water iu the larger ono, and set tho glue pot in it; iu n fow minutes tho gluo will melt and bo ready for uso. Wo read now and then of cases in which burglars are supposed to havo rendered their victims unconscious by holding cloths wet with chloroform to keyholes beforo entering an apart ment. Of coureo tho absurdity of such n fiction is sufficiently apparent. W bother sleepers cau bo made to pass from natural to chloroform sleep, if the chloroform is hold near to the faco is still a question. Sometimes tho ex periment has succeeded, but in iivo experiments recently mado to deter mine tho fact, ovcry ouo of the sleep ers experimented upon woke at tho expiration of three minutes, before thoy Imd como under tho iuflueuco of tho drug. Tho Young Women's Christian Tomperanco Uuion of Providence has obtained statistics showing that the clergy costs tho country annually SO, 000,000; criminals, 81,900,000; to- bacco, $10,000,000, und rum, 8100, 000,000. Now York city spends dai ly 810,000 for cigars und 88,600 for bread. A nmu chowing two inches of a plug of tobacco daily will in fifty years consume moro than half a milo of tobacco ono inch thick and two wide aud costing 82,000. One of our beat citiiena would say to the public that he lias tried Hall's C'atarrhCure aud It Is all that U claimed fur it. Price 75c I ar Utile, at I .tiny A Mr AlUler'd OiJered Paid. A few necks ago an amusing rceno occurred in a Providcnco bank. An uncompromising-looking man walked into tho bank and presented a check at tho cashier'a counter. Tho cashier said to him as politely as pos sible: "I don't know you, 'sir. You must get identified." "That's my name thnr." replied tho stranger, curtly, "Jonathan Windham.'' "Yes, hut I don't know you." "No, I didn't supposo you did, young man; I novcr was introduced to you. Hut, if I havo como from tho country, I hain't goin' to bo sass ed by any such littlo feller as you!" The cAshier, restraining a smilo, said gravely: "You must provo your identity, sir, before I can cash this check." "Hut" (this in a tone of triumph), "it says 'payable to my order,' and I order it paid. You can't get around that, young man! I order it paidl" Just then some ono who knew him came in, and the old farmer departed with his money. Luther said that ho had learned moro about himself from his worst en- imics than from his best friends. That U all very well for Luther, but it is no pleasant task to sit down by tho sido of u man who hates you because you got the tatter of him in a bargain aud invito him to free his mind nnd tell you just what ho thick, of you, becauso you want to improve yourself. In tho warm summer days tho temper is nol at tho freezing point when it might bo safe fur any ono to tell you just exactly what kind of a fool ho has always thought you to be. When you become a corpse your worst enemy may, with impunity, sit up all night with you mid say what he pleases, but for tho present ho had better keep still, or he will suddenly feel ns though ho had fallen ofl tho Hrooklvn bridgo. Tho Yale Iltcord has the following umbrella vocabulary: "To leavo your umbrella in tho hall means 'I don't want it any more.' To purchaso an umbrella indie tea 'I am not smart but honest.' To trail your umbrella on tho sidewalk means that tho man be hind you thirsts for your blood. To lend an umhrolla indicates 'I nm n fool.' To put n cotton umbrella by tho sido of n nice silk ono means 'Ex chaugo is no rohliery.' To urgo a friend to tako an umbrella, saying, 'Oh! do tako it; I'd much rather you would than not,' signifies that you nro lying. To return au umbrella mentis never mind whnt it means. No one ever docs that." Sir Hoyio Roche's flight of oratory in tho Irish Houso of Commons "I smell a rat, I seo him floating in the air; hut I will nip him in the bud" has been nearly approached by an English legislator declaiming against tlio camo laws. "What," said he, "could be more iniquitous than that tenants should not only bo obliged to keep tho rabbits for their landlords, but even to prescrvo their eggs?" An oviparous rabbit must bo a strango beast. Aliayincj a Wife's Anxiety. A lady whose husband had been elected to Congress and who was much dis turbed by tho stories she had read of the malarious atmosphero of the Capi tol, asked ono of his constituents if ho thought it was safo for her husband to livo in Washington. "Safe?" ho re joined, "well, I should say so. It's about the only placo in tho country whero a man can steal with positively 110 risk of being sent to Stato Prison for it." N. Y. Star. In Georgia thero aro sixty-fivo thousand negro votors; in Virginia the number reaches ouo hundred nnd thirty thousand. Iu vlow of tho fact that Georgia's population is quito 11s largo as that of Virgiuia, aud in ad dition that it is a cottou State, this discrepancy in tho negro population, as proportionate by tho ballot cast, $ difficult to 1)0 accounted for. Lawyer "You say yoa mado nn examination of tho premises. What did you fiud?" Wituess "Oh, noth ing of consequence; n beggarly ac count of empty boxes, as Sbakspcuro says." Lawyer "Never mind what Shaksiienro says. Ho will be sum moned and can testify for himself if ho knows anything about tho case." At tho bank: Cashier: "Kxcusome, midam, but your account is rather overdrawn." Mrs. Mai tra vers (whose husband is off ou business and has left her a check-book): "Ob, Mr. Cash iorl that can't Impossible; I've got lots of checks left yet." Adam and En out in Kan tat. A special from Crowley county, this State, give an account of tho location of a vcritablo garden of Eden. Last Sunday a man and wifo, named Pal mer, whllo laboring under a delusion stripped themselves, nnd not being adorned by even tho historical fig leaf, wandered altout thoir coral and orch ard nil day and night, imagining they were in EJen and obeying tho bohests of Jehovah. As tho husband Is a ve ry strong and powerful man, tho neighbors were afraid to go near them but on Monday morning some of them coaxed up courago enough to go to thorn and persuade them to clothe themselves. Their children wero in tho house, but wero unable to do any thing with their parents. Tho couple aro now quiet, but still out of their minds. Tho woman, who is very well educated, was bitten by a rattlesnake a few days before the above occur rence, but, trusting solely in prayer, refused to allow anything to be done for her to cure the bite. Leaven worth Times. Half a Dollak Worth One Thousand. When Mr. Oscar Taylor was in town a few weeks ago ho show ed mo a silver half dollar for which he has already been offered 81,000. It is ono of four halves cast by the Southern Confederacy when tho mint was seized in Now Orleans. On the Liberty side tho die is tho same as on tho present halt dollar, but on the re versed side was substituted seven bars and seven stars, surmounted by a pole with the cap of Liberty. A -stalk of sugar cane and a stalk of cotton are shown, around which are the words "Confederate States of America." On ly four of these coins were issued. Mr. Taylor purchased it from a man in Ozark, who parted with it for the extremely low price of 8100. Merri- weather Weekly. New Style op Beauty-. There is to be an entirely new style of beauty. The girls with tho ruddy locks or the golden hair and the Saxon skin that havo held their sway so long will have to alxlicate their throno to their dark haired sisters. So fashion has de creed, and whon fashion (toes decree a thing tho result is as unnlterablo as a general election. To 1k in tho fash ion to day you must havo dark hair, dark bluo eyes, not a particlo of color, nnd lips as red as the cherry. These rather varied requirements are to be mot with art. London Court Jour nal. One of tho forthcoming June wed dings will Ito up on tho lordly Hudson at a rural church not far from a his toric locality. The rector's residenco is near tho church, with a sort of lit tlo garden lawn between. Tho bridal procession will form in the rectory and will walk to tho church. The groom and best men will meet tho bride at the altar. Harper's Bazar. The portraits on tho now postage stamps are as follows: 1-cent, Frank lin; 2-cent, Jackson; 3-cent, Wash ington; 5-cent, Taylor (old) and Gar field (now); 6-cent, Lincoln; 7-cent, Stanton; 10-cent, Jefferson; 12-cent, Clay; 15-cent, Webster; 24-cent, Scott; 30-cent, Hamilton; 90-cent, Perry. At a fashionable wedding in New York the other day the ceremony was performed under a floral umbrel la. This was probably a little sugges tion of tho brido's mother, who want ed tho groom to understand by the emblem that he ought to put up some thing for a rainy day. About 4J00O boats and 25,000 fish ormen are engaged in the sard ine in dustry on tho r reuch coast. There are about 200 factories, in which 10,' 000 to 17,000 women aro employed, A good catch for a boat would be 25, 000 fish a day, for which they get about thirty-five francs. Virginia drinks up her entiro wheat crop nuuually, and it is stated that tho liquor consumed in Louisiaua costs 817,000,000, or 82,000,000 more than its combined cotton, sugar aud rice crop. Church Union. It is said that tho income ot Sena tor Joseph E. Hrowu, of Georgia, is $1,000 a day, and that it is exceeded by the incomo of 110 other Southern er. It comes mainly from iron and coal. A tramp was shot through the atom ach by u Texas bar-keeper, and the poor follow said tho sonsatiou, though brief was pleasant, this bullet being the first thing bo had bad in his stom ach for several days. A man breathes, about eighteen timed a miuiito, aud uses 3,000 cubla feet of air per hour. Another Electrical Wonder, Tho most astonishing claim yet made in behalf of electricity is thnt it has been proven possible to convoy by it vibrations of light, so that it is practicable not only to speak with a distant friend, but to sco him. Ac cording to the Otago Times, Dr. Quid rah, of Victoria, has invented nn ap paratus, called by him tho electro, ecopo, which accomplishes this. Tho pa per in question says thatapublictcstof this instrument was mado in Mel bourne in tho presence of some forty scientific and public men. "Sitting in a dark room, thoy saw projected on a largo diskofwbito burnished metal, tho raco course at Ffemington with its my raid hosts of activo beings. Each minute detail stood out with perfect fidelity to tho original, and as they looked at tho wonderful picture thro' binocular glasses it was difficult to im agine that they were not on the course itself and moving among those whose actions they could so completely scan." Good Vinegar. As many house keepers find it difficult to make or get good vinegar, I will send my re cipe: Take a gallon of good sorghum molasses, pour over it enough hot wa ter to dissolve it, stir well, then add enough cold, soft water to mako five gallons of liquid. Take two table spoonfuls of flour, make it into a thin pasto and add it to tho liquid; also two tablespoonfuls of good yeast; set in a warm placo in winter; any place in the houso is warm enough in tho sum mer, as it must uot be kept too hot. An open cask or jar is tho best to mako it in. It will bo fit for use in about three weeks and improves with age. Tie a piece of mosquito netting-over tho jar or cask, to keep out intruders. The late Bishop of Oxford prided himself on being able to identify in dividually all tho clergy of his diocese. But on one occasion, when Dr. Wil berforce was dining with a number of them, he observed one clerical brother whose name he did not know. Un willing to confess his ignorance, and too cautious to make inquiry, tho good Bishop approached the unknown, and by way of a feeler, remarked to him: "I forget how you exactly spell your name;" to which tho somewhat dis comfiting reply was "J-o-n-es." The Paris Newt, is responsible for tho following item: "Thero aro twin boys in this city named Richardson who are so much aliko that it is hard to tell '.other from which. One of them joined the Baptist church hero a days ago, aud a rumor on tho town saya that ho gave tho oilier a dime to bo baptized ill his place."
