M PLANE'S CELEBRATED u LIVER PILLS, FOR THB CURB OP Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint, DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACIII. S-mptoms of a Diseased Liver. PAIN in the right side, under the edge of the ribs, increases on pressure ; sometimes the pain is in the left side ; the patient israrelyabletolieon the left side ; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder-blade, and it frequently extends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for a rheuma tism in the arm. The stomach is affect ed with loss of appetite and sickness ; the bowels in general are costive, sometimes alternative with lax ; the head is troubled with pain, accompan ied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a con siderable loss of memory, accompan ied with a painful sensation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. A slight, dry cough is sometimes an attendant.The pa tient complains of weariness and de bility ; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensationof the skin ; his spir its are low: and although he is satis fied that exercise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon tip fortitude enough to try it. In fact he distrusts every remedy. Several o the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them existed, yet examination of the body,after death, has shown the liveii to have been extensively deranged. 'AGUE AND FEVER." Dr. C. Mf Lane's Liver Pills, in cases of Ague and Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results. No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or after taking Quinine. We would advise all who are afflicted with this disease to give them a fair trial. For aU Bilious derangements and as asimple purgative they areunequaled. BEWARE OF IMITATIONS. Q The genuine Dr. C. MVLane's Liver Pills are never sugar coated.

AIDay'i Mport 1st tb Mwamps) of lavtalst BBI There is a mystery attending the move ments of the beaver which invests it with peculiar interest. The indomitable in dustry, ingenuity and silence in con structing ita habitation and dams render this animal an object of much interest to the hunter. Iweuty-nre years ago it was quite rare in Louisiana ; now hundredsof acres of woodland are destroyed, and drainage ia wrioufly a fleeted by beaver dams. . The highlands of east Baton Rouge commence at the Mississippi at Baton Rouge, inn in a diagonal direction from the river, and are loot in the flats border ing on lake Maurepaa. A Ehort distance below the town the highland is intersected by a low piece called a "bottom," which debouches into a swamp, varying in width, and of considerable length. 3iany nnall branches empty into it, and it is a dull, sluggish stream a home for ' alligators, loggerheads, turtles, beaver, otters, mink, etc. This swamp has never been dry within the memory of the oldest in habitant until the past 'summer and fall. In every hollow log there was either an animal or a reptile, the growth of a swampjsincelthe Mississippi found a chan nel elsewhere. The news of this field of "varmints" soon attracted the attention of siwrtsmen, and like Sir Samuel Baker at the atbara, they prepared to reap a full harvest. They soon began a slaughter, and beavers, otters ' and mink enough to stock the market and make hats lor a generation were bagged. The methods resorted t for killing beavers were very simple. They had made their ledges on the margin of the swamp. The hunter would dig with a spade over the channel leading to the cell or lodge, and drop a rope with a noose into the hole thus made, thensending in a don to start the game, he would noose it as it became entangled in the rope. Many were caught in traps. Several sportsmen, armed with guns and lances, and having a good pack of bounds started lor a dav s hunt. "1 II tell the tale as it was told to me." Soon the busy pack are on a beaver trail. Tne dams having previously been cut, the water had leit all the dens high and dry, and an occasional alligator hole deep dug into the basin ot the morass, was the only refuge for this "subtle pillage." The huntsmen urge on the already too eager pack. They overrun the trail, and scattering far and wide in wild confus- ion, the young hounds bounce a "cotton tail," and in lull cry call off the young and inexperienced hunters: but the old sportsmen stand and list-en for the voice ot some reliable veterans gone to test the veracity of the babbling stragglers. It is not long ere they return to the spot where the trail had been lost, and the tenacious eld hounds bang on the "spoor," following its intricate winding across a dry plastered flat into some dry grass, and begin to gibe tongue so Ireely that they are soon followed by their more reckless companions. ow several wild hogs start out of a thicket, and draw off the voung hunters and dogs as before. Away all go through brier and brake, and now the beaver is up, making his way to a'deep alligatorjhole, he plunges in ana is followed by tne dogs. (Jne bolder than the rest seizes hold of the beaver and down they both go to the bottom Uut this pool lias an owner, with a tremendous snort huge alligator rises to the top of the water as it to inquire who had dared to intrude into his domain. This frightens beaver and dogs, and they all beat a nasty retreat out on dry land, but not far can the beaver go, lor, wounded and tried, it drags into some marsh grass and is soon surrounded bv men and dogs.. It is a large one and weighs ninety-six pounds. A telling shot in the eye turns the al ligator on his back. Tha dog is also badly wounded in the fight with the beaver. The wandering stragglers who had been allured by the wild hogs and cot tontails now return, each bringing some trophy o) his chase. Eight beavers, eight otters, six wild hogs, four rabbits and one alligator ten feet long are the ref-ult of the day's hunt. Turf, Field and Fan.i. The Foreign Trade Returns for Jan uary and What They Indicate. A summary of the returns to the bu reau of statistics of the foreign trade of the United States for the month of Jan uary is just published. The returns ishow that the imports continue to fall away and the exports to advance, as they have done now for more than a year. The imports of merchandise were $37, 056,000, against $42,099,000 for the month of January, 1876. Specie - was brought in to the amount of $2,139,307 against $759,293 a year ago, and the to tal decrease of imports was $3,064,401. The exports for January, mixed values, were $68,302,756, against $57,912,424 for for 1876 ; export of specie were $2,932, 629, against $2,352,624 ; and the total in crease for the month was $11,000,237. What is generally called the balance of trade was, therefore, increased in our favor to the extent of $14,063,638. We have not as yet compared the items of export and import, in which noticeable changes have taken place. Previous to doing so we invite our readers' attention to some faets in connection with the trade of 1876, which will not be. without value. During the last calendar year, the im ports of merchandise into the United States fell off $76,376,000. Of this de cline the largest single item was in wools and manufactures of wool, of which we took less $15 630,000 than the previous year. The next largest item, being al most the same in amount, was .coffee, of which we took less by $15,012,000 than in 1875. In silks the falling off was $9, 193,000. I flax and its manufactures it was $1,755,000. In earthen and china ware it was $2,922,000. In cotton, bleached and unbleached, and in prints and jeans, etc., it was $3,254,000. In steel rails it was $1,140,000. In tin it was $2,682,000. In flax-seed, $3,162,000, In precious stones, $919,000. These arti-1 cles include those in which tbe decrease was'the most considerableand in these it amounted to $55 669,000, or about three- j fourths of the whole. The significance of the decline as above described is only too plain. It shows not a lessened abili ty to indulge in luxuries only, as in the case of silks and precious stones ; but an inability to com mand some articles which, like coffee, are comforts approximating to necessi ties, and some which are nearly al ways necessities, as woelen goods and earthenware and crockery. In the case of woolen goods, the foreign article was partially replaced by home manufactures, and this was true of cotton goods as well, but in the items of steel rails, flax seed, foreign wools and tin, which are raw ma terials of American manufacture, the de crease was due to a stagnation of Ameri can industry. . If, now, we turn to our ex-ports, we find that the total increase over the pre vious year was $70,440,000. The most important items of increase were as fol lows: In Indian corn, $17,283,000; in mineral oils, $18,423,000 ; in bacon and hams, 15,703,000, and in lard, $4,365, 000 : in leaf tobocco, 13,636,000 ; in cop per. $1,817,000; in uncolored cottons, $2 410,000; in clover eeed, etc., $1,760, 00'; in beef, $1,304,000; iu butter, $1, 701,000; -in hops, $1,027,000, arid in metal cartridges, $1,167,000. These items account for an increase of $80, 603,000, which was offset by a falling off j:a wheat, $2,153,000; in cotton, $6,481 000; in furs, $1,219,000; in hides, 893,000; in firearms, f 2,1 30,000, and in tallow, $2,159,000. It will be seen that with some important exceptions, the in crease in our exports is in provisions or in products in a low state of preparation, and intended as the raw material of other industries. The most remarkable items of increase are in Indian corn, il luminating oil, leaf tobacco and bacon, hams and lard. These include all but a few millions of the net increase in ex ports. The items which show the fruit of American industry carried beyond the primary stages of manufacture are cait ridges, uncolored cottons, illuminating oils, bacon, hams and lard. These cover something more than one-half of the net increase. Tnese facts indicate a healthful process eoinir on An our commercial relations with the rest of the world. We are buy- inir less, which, though not a sign of prosperity, is a condition ot it, especially where a country or an individual has Dreviouslv been buvineron a lanre credit, We are also payine our debts with the products of industry, and, in the case of colored cottons and ot illuminating ons, we are showing resources as vet compara tively undeveloped. There is no reason to doubt that this process will continue Necessity is the mother of invention, and if our European friends will not sell us goods or lend us money on our corporate securities, we shall certainly contrive some way of getting joods and money on other terms. SOMNAMBULISTIC CAPERS. Bemarkable Arrobatiie Perfsrmaaee ofi Y.a.Ud;la HerM- ea. One of the most remarkable exhibi tions ef somnambulism ever given in this city took place about one o'clock Satur day near the corner f High and Sixth streets. The principal actor in the serio comic drama was an eighteen year-old miss, named Annie Barton, and she was first discovered by C. W. Hodges. He was on his way home when his attention was attracted by a queer-looking object seated upon the top of a grapevine arbor lust over the fence. btoppinsr, JVIr. Hodges looked at the figure until be saw it move, when he spoke to it, but received no answer. At this juncture, Capt. C. C. Starkweather, of the Trum bull avenue police station, came alone oixtn street on his way Dome. lie was BtODoed bv Mr. Hodges, who tiointed out the queer figure, and they were not long in daubt as to the nature of the ar- pari t ion. "It's a woman," said Capt. Starkweather, and "she must be asleep I" continued Mr. Hodges. Arriving at that conclusion, the men opened tho gate, and, walkinff to the arbor, called to the sleeping' girl, but received no reply. C aptain Starkweather then began climb ing up the arbor, at which the eirl started n a lively ru, and coiner the whole length of the arbor roof, made a jump, clearing a space of about eight feet, alighting on the roof of a woodshed. This manoeuver astonished the men. who awakened Mr. Thompson and his family and told them that there was a sleep-walker upon their woodshed. Soon Mr. Thompson and his wife and son joined Mr. Hodges and the captain in the cnase. What was their surprise to find Miss Barton had clambered from the shed to the wins, and thence in the aoex of the roof ot tbe main building, where she stood quietly leaning auainst the chimney. Finally a ladder was procured and young Thompson climbed to the side of the roof, but, getting there, found it so covered with snow and ice that it was impossible for him to reach the girl. hk down he came, and the ladder was carried to the front of the house, where it was put in position with one end asrainst the roof peak. This time captian Starkweather took off his boots and climbed up. The eirl stood quietly until he was within a few feet of her, when she ran down toward the wing, and sliding went from one roof to the other ; thence she jumped back to the grape arbor, and before auy of tha men could get to her she jumped to the ground, and, dashing through a back gate, ran up High street. The chase was continued .to the Crawford street park, where she was captured. Then it was found that she was completely dressed, with the exception of a hat and shawl, and that during all of ber haz ardous midnipht ramble had not received the slightest injury. She was taken to the 1 rum bull avenue police station until her relatives, being notified, put in appearance and took her in charge. This is the second escapade, her friends as sert, of the kind in which Miss Barton has taken part. Detroit Free Frets. Japanese Superstitions. Japanese people are very superstitious, and have innumerable t-igns and tokens by which to regulate their conduct and belief's. They never sweep the room of a house immediately after ene of the in mates has set out upon a journey this would sweep out all the luck with him. At a marriage ceremony neither bride nor bridegroom wears any clothing of a purple color, lest their marriage-tie be soon loosed, as purple is the color most liable to fade. They have some curious ideas in regard to finger nails, which are cut only at certain times. When a per son losses a tooth, either artificially or at the hands of a dentist Japanese "tooth carpenter' or by forceps, or by acci dent, in order that another may grow in the empty socket, the tooth, if from the upper jaw, is buried under the founda tion of the house ; if Jfrom the lower jaw, it is thrown upon the roof a house. Of hundred of their superstitions, here area few: If a woman steps over an egg-shell she will go mad ; if over a ra zor, it will become dull ; if ever a whet stone, it will be broken. If a man should set his hair on fire, he will go mad. Children are told if they tell a lie an ont or an imp called the (cnfu will pull out their tongues. Many a Japanese urchin has spoken the truth from fear of an oni supposed to be standing by, ready to run away with his tongue. No such watch man seems to be set before the unruly member of the scolding wife. Of these " edged tools that grow sharper by con stant use" there is a goodly number in Japan. When a husband and wife are quarreling, a devil is belived to be stand ing between, them, encouraging them to go on from bad to worse. Northern Manufacturers In (ievrgla. Two prominent manufacturing capi talists of Massachusetts arrived in Au gusta during the first part of tho week. The result oi their visit and of the co operationjof a number of business menjind capitalists of our own city, has been the organization of the "Enterprise manu facturing company." The company has purchased the "Granite millsfrom George T. Jackson & Co. for $19,000. The capital stock is fixed at $150,000. Tbe full amount has been subscribed and work will begin at once. The present mill will be put in first claas condition and extensive additions and improve ments made. It is proposed to start with three thousand seven hundred spindles which will be increased to twenty thou sand in a shoV time. The company proposes to manufacture silesia goods, a species tf lining, and, also, we under stand, goods like those now made by the Augusta factory. The machinery is now boxed at a northern point and will be shipped to Augusta as soon as the mill is ready tb receive it. It"i8 rumored that a much larger mill is soon to be erected on the power mills tract by a company a large part of whose capital will be furnished oy northern parties. It ib said that this mill will be twi-e the capacity of the -Augusta fac torv, or about i-ixty thousand spindles. Avqvtta Chronicle and 6mtinel. VOL. XXII. NO. ."38. HOT SPRINGS. Tfcetlr Frv-la fftnl as. mm Rs:alaiea at tl Adtat tieaata atf CuagrrH. A reporter ef the Commercial'had a conversation with Mr. Walsh, of Hot Springs, who wfs on his way back from Washington, where he went to assist in getting through the law to redeem the springs. Mr. Walsh, who has been a prominent citizen of " the springs" for many years, was formerly of this city. During the administration of Mayor Hatch he was on the police force. He is now practing law, and is also in the real estate business. In the course of his talk about the springs yesterday he said: The original adventures three who, in 1832, settled there and laid squatter- claim to "the lands were Hale, Gaines and Hector. These men took in the lauds immediately adjoining the springs, and held possession. Anybody coming after them, and proposing to settle there, had to pay them tribute at the muzzle ot the shot-gun. You've heard a great deal about the troubles and complica tions, and legislature and attempts at legislation in congress and out of con gress, and in the supreme court of the United States, about this Hot Spring reservation, that have kept back progress there. The act of 1871 seemed to arrive at something definite in the way of the col lection of rents by the United States. But this new act, which became a law by President Grant's signature, in his last day in office, settles everything on jl definite and enduring basis. There are 2,640 acres in the Hot Spring reserva tion. This includes the village, which bas a population now of four thousand persons. There is to be an appraisement of this projierty embraced in this 2,640 acres, and every occupant must pay his price, as appraised, to the general gov ernment, and thus become absolute owners. Uut the springs are to be re served for the ue of all, subjected to the management of a government officer, forever. A commission of three persons is to be appointed to appraise the property claim- d now by the owners of the buildings. who shall have the privilege of purchace at the assessed price. Any claimant failing to pay the assessed price shall have the privilege of removing his im provement. The commission shall fix the amount of land to be purchased by each claimant, after having properly platted the ground for a suitable arrange ment of streets and alleys. The lands appraised and not taken by claimants shall be sold at auction, at not less than the appraised price. The springs will be under the control of the department of the interior, and all taxea for the ui-e of the water shall go to that depart ment, under the direction of a superin tendent. All this means a new day for the Hot Springs of Arkansas. Already the hotels there are improving, and you can land at the village by rail, twenty-three hours from St. Louis. Cincinnati CommTcial. DIPSOMANIA. Bebulldlar the Victim Alter Polsoailais; by Too 9Ia-3i Bad Wbl.ky. While it is true that there is no absolute cure ibr dipsomania or tbe dis eased appetite for ardent spirits, save in the dipsomaniac's strength to resist temptation, there are valuable assistants to his physical weaknesses in the form of animal and vegetable stimulant, whicb he should not despise in fighting the bat tle against the insidious foe. All who have been sufferers from the diseased pas sion for liquor bear iestimenyjto the lact that the craving for alcholic stimulants is invariably preceded by a depression of the nervous system that is actually in supportable, accompanied almost invari ably with distate for solid food. What a man is to resort to at this period of his ailment is a most important question. Ammonia in small doses, taken every thirty minutes, has been recommended ; but ammonia is not nourishment, nor will it restore the desire for food. It is the testimony of many who have tried it under the circumstances stated that ex tract of beef, made palatable with celery salt and a moderate quantity of black or red pepper, will afford the required stimulus, with no bad effects, and at the same time aid in restoring the tone of tbe stomach. 'Quassia, calisaya, and iron should all be brought to assist in toning up the system and aiding the digestive and nervous functions, but for diet nutriment, which will certainly he at once digested and assimilated, there is nothing to compare to the beef extract. It is nothing but a solution of Liebig's extract ot beet, witu celery palt, tuken in hot soda water. - Ex-President (.rant's European Tour. General and Mrs. Grant will leave Washington during the present week for a visit to the west. Accompanied by their youngest son, now in college, they will sail for Europe in Mav. They ex pect to be absent from the country at least two years, and it is general Grant's desire to travel as any other private citizen of the United States without public demonstrations from the govern ment authorities of the countries be will visit. He recalls the embarrassment of Franklin Pierce during his tour abroad after the expiration ot his presidential term. Afttr a profusion of nublic at tention he at last found refuge in a secluded village in the Swiss mountain., where he enjoyed himself for about three days before his identity was descovered. Then the people turned out en inaxe, and gave him so cordial a reception that he was again forced to move along. Gen eral Grant desires to avoid this. Tweed's Mansion. While William M. Tweed occupies his stone quarters in Ludiow Street jail, his family -dwell in an eiegant mansion at Greenwich. The place is superb in its appointments and location. The estate lies on tne bound, on a slope ot land, with about three acres of land closely shaved and walled in with a handsome stone fence. The entrance is through massive iron gates, on which are em bossed the monogram T. The house is castellated, and the tall tower is con spicuous on the land and and on tbe sea. The house is occupied by Mrs. Tweed, a married daughter, and her husband, and two unmarried girls. The family maintain no special retirement. They live like any well-to do household. The girls are very popular in the neighbor hood, and are spoken of as being talented and very noble young women. They generally attend tbe Episcopal service, although thev are often seen in. the Con gregational church. The famed Ameri cus club house is now a hotel. Vp York Letter. Do Snake Catch Fish Z A. W. Chase, of the United States coast survey, describes, in a note to the editor of the Popular Science Monthly, a contest which he and a brother officer witnessed in 1867 on the Purissima, a small trout stream about twenty-Jour miles south of San Francisco: Wc had been fishing on the stream, and came to a high bank which overlook ed a transparent pool of water about ten feet in diameter and four feet in depth. This pool was lringed with willows, and had ou one side a small gravel bank. The trout at first sight was lying in mid water", heading up stream. It was, ss afterward ascertained, fully nine inches in length a very desirable prize for an angler. While studying bow to cast our flies to secure .bim. a new novel fi.n erman appeared, and quick was bis ac tions that we suspended ou' own to wit nen thera. Tbia enrmy of the trout was a large water snake of the common variety, stripeJ bl and yeUw. He swam up the poe-1 on the surface until over the trout, when he macte a dive, and by a dexterous movement seized the trout in such a manner that the jaws of he make closed its siouth. The fight then commenced. The trout had the use of iU tail and fins, and onuld drsg the snake from the surface; when near the bottom, however, the snake made use of its tail by winding it around every stone or root that it cmnd roach. After secuung this tml hold it could drag the trdut toward thebank.but, on letting go, the trout would have a new advantage. The battle was continued for full twentv minutes, when tbe snake managed to get its tail out of the water and clasped around the root of on of the wi lows mentioned as overnangine tne poni. j lie battle wasthen up.fortheHnake gradually put coil after coil around tht, root, with each one dragging the fish toward the land. When half its body wa coiled it unloosened its first hold and stretched tae end ot its tail out in every direction. and finding another root, made last and now, using both, dragtred tie tr.ut out on the gravel bank. ' It now had it under control, and, uncoiling, the snake drag ged the firth fully ten leet up on the bank, and I suppose would have eorged him. We killed the snake and replaced the trout in the water, as we th night that he deserved liberty. He was ap parently unhurt, and io a fe w moments darted off. . That the water snake of California brooks will prey upon fhe young of the trout, and also smaller arid less active, fishes, I have noticed, but never have seen an attack on a fish so large oront more hotly contested. INTO IHE STREET. A Maal Nfry .fa O.rr Wealthy IVobdsb's Dissipation. On the first floor ot the tenement house No. 337 Kast Thirtieth street, lives Mrs. Marie Cullen with four of her children, the eldest sixteen the youngest about four years old. She is now a hab itual drunkard, and is likely to be shortly turned int the street. Her father was a proserous wine mer chant in Ireland. lie died when she was quite young, leaving his estate in such a condition that his family got nothing, and having no friuids who would take care ot her, she came to America and. tried to earn her living as a seamstress. She was very pretty as may be seen even now and she soon mar ried a rich marbledenler, whose name she now bears. They lived happily together for some time, but fashionable dissipation into which she plunged was too much fiirher, aud she began to drink badly after the birth of her firot child, now dead. She nearly ruined her husband by ,her recklessness, and when he died a year ago he left her nothing but the tenement house in which she now lives. It is encumbered by a mortgage of $11, 0O0. and instead of paying her taxes and the interest on the mortgage, die spent everything for drink. She pawned her children's clothing and her own until all were half naked. " Walk in, sir," said Mrs. Cullen to the World reporter, who called on hex yesterday. "There is our front parlor. Step in. Thore's no carpet on it ; there is no furniture in it; tbe windows are dusty ; but it was different once. I can't ask you to take a seat, because there is none for you, but you are wel come.'' Mrs. Cullen is forty years old, and quite stout. She was drwed in a long flowing wrapper, and wore a long scarf about her neck. Her children came into the room and listened as she spoke, her son, a boy fourteen years old, frequently interrupting her with such reraHrks as, " Stah it, old womnn 1 Don't tell such d d lies,"and "Shut up, yer lu-her I" At this the smaller ones laughed out right. One of them, a little boy about five years old, had nothing on him but a ragged shirt and a pair of drawers. A pretty little girl, not more than two years his senior, had scarcely more than he, but she did have a new pair of shoes. "I won't have 'em long though," said she; "Mother'Il put 'em in the pawn shop." Mrs. Cullen has a daughter sixteen years old who has had to leave ber. Her t-on had a position as mesnenger, but his mother kept him awake so much niuhts, that he had to give it up. The mortgage on the bouso was foreclosed yesterday, and nothing remains for tbe family but the streets. How Many Pounds to the Ton. The suit of Frederick Ilecht against the Pbrrnix insurance company was brought in the Buprcme court, New York, recently, to recover on a policy of marine insurance. The policy contained the fol- lowing clause concerning the vessel in which the insured goods were to be shinped: "Warranted not to carry more than her registered tonnage in marble, lead, coal, or iron." Hie vessel iu which the goods were shipped was registered in this port at nine hundred and sixteen tons. She carried a load of coal consist ing of nine hundred and two tons, of 2,240 Kiunds each. This quantity would make over 1,000 tons of 2.0(H) pounds eaeh. The vessel was lost at sea. The insurance company claimed that the warranty in the policy related to loading the vessel with tons of 2,000 pounds eaeh. and the vessel being overloaded in carrying more than 1,000 tons, they were discharged from liability on the olicy. The cae was tried before Judge Van Brunt, and the plaintiff asked leave to show a custom at this port of making tbe tons of coal, etc., each of 2,240 pounds.. Judge Van Brunt, however, held that as the contract of insurance had been made in this state and was to be performed in this state, the laws of this state regulating the number of. pounds to the ton should govern. The number of pounds here is 2,000. The vessel, therefore, was loaded to more tban her registered tonnage, and tbe company is not liable. The complaint was, there fore, dismissed. Xew York Pajer. A ISen Story About Henri Monnier. L'Evenement tells it. In a company half bourgeois, half artistic, some one begged Monnier to repeat a scene from one of bis plays. Monnier vainly en deavored to plead a cold, but the compa ny insisted to such an extent that he consented to give them something. There was a call for a screen, but Mon nier told them that he did not mind it; be would content himself by imitating the cry of several animal. This every one agreed to, and having gathered them about him he began. "I will first imitate," said be, "the roaring of the lion : Ileuh!" Everybody applauded this rearing as wonderfully like; some ladies shud dered. "Now I will imitate the bellowing of the hull: Heuhl" The same enthusiasm; meanwhile the bellowing of the bull was precisely like the roaring of the lion; but in salon one does not look too closely. Henri Monnier continued: " The howl of the wolf : Heuh '." Always the same thing. " The bleating of the sheep: Heuh I" They began to look at him with some astonishment. Henri Monnier went on: "The neighing of the horse: Heuh! "The clucking of the hen: Heuhl" " The mewing of the cat : Heuh !" "Tbe striking of the clock: Heuh! And catching bis breath, he added, in finishing, with a voice of thunder: "The noise of tbe grass growing: Heuh!" Thirty-Six Attitudes. Twelve boys, by count, were grouped around a toy cannon on Miami avenue to fire a national salute, says the Detroit Free Press. One bov t an fire a national salute as well as twelve boys, but it is well to have eleven eatra boys squatted around to give advice. A tin box con taining four ounces of powder was cen trally situated, and, at a proper moment, a spaik of fire was communicated to it by some careless hand. The. cannon didn't go off, but the bov did. Each of the twelve lac's struck an average of three different attitudes, making thirty si t different "poses" in all. Some went over a femx, mine around a corner, others started -,for home to tew " things naa changed any, and one lad horpei around on one foot and called out : l' I'll sell toy sheeT ef fourth of July for fifteen cent.
