A HUGO ISO MATCH.
Among the baggage coming down on a Flint & Pere Marquette train the other day, was a full-grown black bear. Bruin lad been in captivity fur two or three years, end was on liis way East for a zoological garden. His owner was allowed to ride with him in the baggage car, aud be. seemed to think the bear was the greatest animal on earth. He was ready to bet that bruin could out-hug and out bite any thing human, and was rather disap pointed when the railroad men refused to dispute this point with him. He was indulging in his brag when au old man came into the car to see about his trunk. He saw the bear, of course, but the glance of contempt be bestowed on the animal instantly kindled the in dignation of the owner, who called out: "Mebbe you think I'm toting an old byena around the country !" "I guess it's a bear," slowly replied the other, "but I see nothing remarka ble about him." "You don't, eh? Well, I do! Mebbe you'd like to see him hug that trunk of yours? What he can't Bliver when he gets his paws around it has got to have roots forty feet under ground." "I've got a son in the back car reflectively observed the old man and then he stopped and looked at the bear. "Your son ! Egad ! Will yon match your eon agin my bear ?" chuckled the owner as he danced with delight "I guess so." "You do! Bring him in ! Trot him out! I'll give him all the 3how he wants and bet five to one on the bear." The old man slowly took in a chew of tobacco, left the car and when be returned he had his son Martin with him. Martin seemed to be about twenty-seven years of age, and a little taller than a hitching post. He was built on the ground with a back like a writing desk and arms which seemed have been sawed from railroad ties. "Martin, this 'ere man wants to bet five to one that this bear can out-hug yon," quietly explained the father as sat down on a trunk. "Yes, that's it —that's just it!" cackled the owner. I'll muzzle him so he can't bite, and I'll bet five to one he'll make you holler in two minutes." "Muzzle your b'ar!" was all that Martin said as he pulled out a five dol lar note and handed it to the baggage man. The bear man put $25 with it, grinning like a boy in a cherry tree, and in a minute be had the bear ready. Martin removed bis coat and paper col lar, and carelessly inquired : ."Is this to be a squar' hug, with no gouging ?" "Jess so —jes 1" replied the bear man. "You hug the bear, and he will hug you, and the one who squeals first loses his cash. Now, then, all ready !" As Martin approached, the bear rose up with a sinful glare in bis eye, and the two embraced. It was a sort of back hold, with no sell out on the crowd. "Go for him, Hunyado I" yelled the bear man as they closed, and the bear responded. One could see by the set of his eyes that he meant to make jelly of that young man in a York minute, but he failed to do it. Some little trifle stood in the way. For instance, it wasn't ten seconds before he realized that two could play at hugging. Martin's hand sank down in the bear's coat, the shoulder muscles were called on for duty, and at the first hug the bear rolled bis eyes in astonishment. "Go in Hunyado—go in—go in I" screamed the bear man, and bruin laid himself out a? if be meant to pull a railroad water tank down. "You might squeeze a little harder, my son," carelessly suggested the fath er, and he spit from the open door, and Martin called out his reserve muscle. Each had his best grip. There was no tumbling around to waste breath, but it was a stand-up and a stand-still hugging match. Little by little the bear's eyes began to bulge and his mouth to open, and Martin's face slow ly grew to the color of red paint. "Hang to him Hunyado—l've got my last dollar on your head !" shrieked the bear man, as he saw a further bulge of his pet's eyes. But it was no use. All of a sudden the bear began to yell and cough, and strangle. He was a goner. Martin knew it, but he wanted no dispute, and so he gave Hunyado a lift from the floor, a hug which rolled his eyes around like a pin wheel, and then dropped him in a heap on the floor. "Well, may I be shot!" gasped the bear man as he stood over the half-life less heap ot hair and claws. "Martin," said the father as he handed him the thirty dollars, "you'd better go back thar and watch our satchels./ "Yes, I guess so," replied the son as he shoved the bills into his vest pocket and retired without another word or look at the bear. That was the bear they were feeding gruel in a saloon on Randolph street two evenings ago—one man was feed ing him gruel and another feeling along his spine to find the fraeture. somethingYn A NAME. The following circular has been pre pared by the First Assistant Postmas ter General in addressing postmasters relative to changing the names of a number of postoffices throughout the country, the titles of which are too long or similar to others in States where the name when abbreviated is liable to be confounded, such as Ga., La., Pa., and Va "Sir : A great deal of confusion in the transmission of the mails is caused by the unnecessary long names for postoffices; particularly is this the case when the prefixes of East, Centre, New, North, South or West, etc., or such additions as Burgh, Centra, City Corners, Creeks, Cross Roads, Depot, Hill, Hotel, Hollow, Junction, Mill, Mound, Peak, Plain, Point, Port, Prairie, Rock, River, Run, Ridge, Store, Station, Spring, Town, Yale, Village or Valley, etc., etc., are used. The Department proposes to change the name of your office, but before do ing so a reasonable time will be given you to state the wishes of the patrons regarding such change. If you can suggest a short name, more suitable, due consideration and attention will be given to your suggestions." It is believed that the names of at least 5,000 postoffices will be altered, but the change will bo made gradually so as not to cause much embarasmcnt in the mail service. Hooray for Injeany ! MRS.

Ueu'l Tkt. aud I'ass'pr Art., Chicago, lib WHY DOES~ a woman's health rfflen break down at an early age? Put a mail at the wi • h-tub, 1 t !:.m t heated from the hot suds until every pore is opened; then let bins stand o'er tiv: I.it :v c i that comes from scalding and boiling clothes that a;« full of sweat and exhalat. >ns ir •;>. iho skin, aud his liealtli too would break down before long; and yet this most terrible orucal is \\. i A WOMAN ha& to go through with on wash-day; and, besides, with her clothing wot from lerspirirx a the hot work, she has to risk her life by going out in the air to hang up the clothes. J. VOL those not at work are in the unhealthy atmosphere; its smell, so apparent to visitors, shew ing that it finds its way throuxh the house,—the family, however, often becoming v toined to the peculiar odor from its own wash a< not to uotice it. These facts re;. lily « x plain why so many women suffer with colds, rheumatism, weak nerves, or neuralgia, and LOOK OLD while yet young in years, and physicians and boards of health cannot draw nttent.'n t.o strongly to the injurious effects of the usual way of washing, with its necessary, steam and scalding or boiling to get the clothes pure and sweet-smelling, especially as it is without doubt often the direct cause of those dreadful diseases, diphtheria, consumption, and typhoid fever, fortunately this* trouble can be avoided; scalding, boiling, steam and ail disagreeable smell from the wash completely done away with; clothes made sweet and beautifully white; from Vie saving in fuel the wash done at lens cost than even when home-made soap w t i*ert, and very much SOONER THAN by the old way, by using FRANK SIDDAIXS SOAP,—a Soap so purifying and cleans.njr that the dirtiest clothing can be washed in lukewarm water with very little rubbing, an.l clothes, bedding and utensils used by the sick disinfected and cleansed without t-itner peal ding or boiling, while the work is so light that a girl twelve or thirteen years ot i„e can <i« a large wash without being tived; and yet so mild and healing is this fcoap that i> r toil; i and shaving it has no equal, and physicians advise its use in preference to imported < a-tne m a;» on wounds and sores, ami to wash the youngest infants, as well as lor persons with Ut .cate skin. Now that there is a remedy for this, so economical that the JHMJ real can use it, there is not a woman or A MAN who is not directly interested in having used in their homes, in spite of prejudice, THAT WONDERFUL WAY OF WASHING CLOTHES, which does away with the bard work, I !!CIIMVO smell and fearful steam on wash-days, makes the white Pieces whiter, colored pieces bright* r and flannels softer than they can be made by washing the old way, leaves the hands smooth enough to do fine sewing and overy article as clean, as sweet and as pure as il never worn.

My attention was called to FRANK RIDPALLS f'OA P from an advertisement in my own paper, ami its use In my house for nearly a year, according to the directions, has proved that its remarkable properties have not been overstated. For remov ing printing ink it Is Invaluable, while for toilet and shaving il is the best soap I have ever seen. From MRS. 11. L. KENYON, Northfield, VT. I do my wash with FRA NK SIDDALLS SOAP In hair the time and with no expense for Soap, iu the Min ing Infw.l mure IJumpayi/or it. J have no steain or scent from the wash, whlie tho Having hi health, clothes and labor can hardly be estimated. From K. W. STANTON, 1506 N. 30th St., Pliilada. We are confident, from a long experience In nslng and recommending FRANK SIDDALLS BO \l\ that one trial, according to the very easy printed directions, will overcome all pn-judices. It Jti ,o really has wonderful merit for shaving, toilet. The following nrc the Directions for Use, so simple that a child can understand them. Dont (lo anything so ridiculous us to buy the Soup unless you intend following tlicro. UM $ 100 positively forfeited if it injures tin; clothes, or trill not do everything claimed. First, put the white clothes in a tub of water, only made warm enough to be comfortable for the hands. Then take one piece out at a time on the wash-board, rub the Soap lightly over it, roll it up and put it back into the same tub, and so on with each piece until all have the Soap rublwd on them. Then go away and let them soak at least twenty minute*, without touching them, when the dirt will all be loosened, and a very little rubbing on the wash-board, out of that one suds, will make them perfectly clean, being particular to turn each piece while washing so as to get at the seams. Then wash lightly on the wash board, through n lukewarm rinse-water (without any Soap,) so as to get the dirty suds out. Then put through blue-water, and on the line, without scalding or boiling a tiny If piece. Afterward put flannels and colored pieces to soak, and wash them exactly the same way. It is important not to heat the wash-water in a tin, brass or copper kettle. A tea-kettle will heat enough water for a large waah with this Soap. Just Think What You will Save by this Easy Way of Washing 1 No Wash-boiler! No Steam! No Smell of Suds through the House! It has the remarkable Property of keeping the Diih-Cloth, Wash-Rug and Sponge always Sweet, and of Washing Freely in Hard Water. -•—I SOLD BY GROCERSi-*- Get a Cake and Try it for Yourself next Wash-Day.
