TOO MUCH FOR THE CANE RACKET.
A Mail's Knowledge of the Use of Hl?
Flats Serves ?Ilm ?i Good Turn.
Two gentlemen were chatting to?
gether ?bt?t many things in u club.
One was a tall, well built man, whose
chief business in life it was to keep him?
self in good form. The other was an
admiring friend from the. country, who
was listening to the former's tales of
metropolitan experiences.
"Did you ever hear," asked the city
man, "about the 'cane racket V No!
Well, then. I will tell you about one oi
the closest calls I suppose that 1 ever
had. It was 1 o'clock in the morning.
After-the theatre I dropped in here at
thedub for an hour or two. When I
left the club I had only a little small
clump" in my pocl; ?:.
?"It was a mild evening in early au?
tumn, and I walk along up town at a
swinging gait. My overcoat was thrown
open showing my dress suit, and in my
right hand I carried a fairly heavy
stick. 1 did not keep to the avenues,
but to vary the uionoiony took occa?
sionally a block on the cross streets in
working my way east. I noticed that
there was a man following a short dis?
tance behind inc who was very gradu?
ally overtaking me, but I did not think
much of it. As I turned into Thirty
sixth str-.vt ho brushed by me. knock?
ing my cane out of my hand. Il fell a
loot or so in front.
??Despite his muttered 'Excuse me,'
it passed through my mind in a minute
that if was done purposely. 1 did not
wait for a second thought. I turned
upon him and let him have a left
bander right under the jaw. Ho was
evidently taken by surprise and oil his
guard, for he fell sprawling into the
gutter.
"Before he had ti^io to recover him?
self I stood over him with my right
hand clinched and Idled. 'Crawlalong
on your hands and knees,' said I, 'un?
til you get opposite where thai cano ia
lying,' He .did so. 'Now.' said 1,
'while you keep your left hand on tin
ground, reach out with your right, pick
up that cane and hand it to me.' lie
did that. too. 'Once more,' 1 sai l,
'get on to your foot, clasp your hands,
and hold them out in front of you.'
He obeyed sheepishly. 'Now.' 1 added,
'walk straight along, anil if you dare
change or make a movement to change
from the position winch I have given
you I will brain you.'
"A child could not have been more]
obedient than was this supposed ruf-'
flan. He walked along with his clasp?
ed hands held in front of him. slowly,
like a blind man feeling his way, while
I walked behind him gripping 'with,
both hands the upraised cane, in {he
attitude of Ajax defying the lightning,
ready to let it descend with all my
strength and crack his skull, if be
showed the least disposition for funny
business. We advanced this way a
little more than a block when we met
a policeman. To him I delivered ovei
my captive. I accompanied them to
the station house.
" 'Hello.' said the sergeant at the
desk, 'isthar you, Jim? What brought
you here.''
"I told the sergeant my ? tory, .? i i hie
seemed very much amused. He b tgan
to poke fun at Jim for being s ? easily
run in by a dud-' hi a dress suit. Jim's
reply was very c?mplhm atary, 'Me
ain't no chump.'
"When i!:e .>fl":?.vrs went through
Jim's clothes they found a slung.-!:'it in
one of his pockets, as well as a revol?
ver. Had I stooped to pick up that
cane I should no doubt have r ?? ived a
playful tap on my head that would
have left me sleeping on the sidewalk.
"The sergeant warmly congratulated
me on my escape and on my rendering
valuable service to the police depart/
ment. It seems that '.Jim.' otherwise

graduate of Sing Sing. He celebrated
his return to freedom by committing a

An Honest Man.
At one of Dr. John M. Wicting's lec?
tures in Boston he saw in the audience
a tall. lank, awkward looking man.

in Philadelphia?*'made himself known
to Dr. Wieting, and requested a loan of {
$1,000 with which to go to California
It was in the gold fever times ?agreeing
to send the doctor half his earnings.
The doctor consented. After a while
came $1.000 back, and then in differ?
ent installments ?9,000 more, where?
upon the doctor cried: ''Hold!'7 but the,
stranger wrote that he did not propose
to break his bond.
Soon, however, he wrote requesting a ' -
fresh loan of $20.000. The doctor's!;
friends protested that the 810,000 was j
only a decoy, mid that if the doctor
sent the $20.000 he would never hear of
it again. Nevertheless, he sent the
money, and there was an awful pause;
but after a time the returns began, and ]
finally mounted up to $50,000, after!]

Fish That Are Sensitiv? to the Cold.
There is no doubt that fish, particu?
larly many of those which inhabit
fresh water, feel the cold, and that this
accounts for their moving in winter to
deep water, when they have the oppor?
tunity of doing so. Some fish are much
more affected than others by cold.
Swainson mentions an instance of a
number of fine tench having been
found dead hi a pond after the break
up of a frost; and, as a;,: ." of vital?
ity in other fish, he states that in north?
ern latitudes eels and perch have re?
tained their vitality when frozen into
solid blocks of ice, and that advantage
has been taken of the fact to remove
them from -one locality to another.?

All lit Once.
The falling of a big tree under tue
woodman's ax is always an impressive
sight?und au impressive sound?as
all country bred readers will testify.
The historian of the '?Seventy-ninth
Highlanders," of New York, desoribes
the cutting down of a whole hillside
of trees under circumstances that must
have made it a memorable spectacle.
It was during the advance of the
Army of the Potomao after the defeat
at Bull Run. Fortifications wero or?
dered thrown up, and the men of the
Maine and Wisconsin regiments were
set to work at tree foiling, a work with
which they proved themselves perfect?
ly faun liar.
It was an interesting sight to witness
the simultaneous fall of a whole hill?
side of timber.
The choppers began at tho foot of
the hill, the line extending for per?
haps hall' a mile. They cut only part
way through the tree, and in this way
worked up to the crest, leaving the
trees iu the top row in such a condition
that a single blow would bring theiu
down. 9
Then, when all was ready, the bugle
sounded, and the last strokes were
given. Down came the upper tier of
trees. Theso brought down those be?
low them, and, like the billow on the
surface of the ocean, the entire forest
fell with a crash like mighty thunder.
An oiil Won of Insulation.
.After all, these insulated coll'ce pots
do but represent the application of a
device familiar centuries ago to the
Gshcrmcn of south Normandy and the
Brittany coast. It has been for an in?
definite period the Custom there for
these toilers of the sea to start out with
their nets iu the afternoon, carrying
with them a warm meal for the day
following. The pot containing the
stow or heated delicacy is wrapped iu
a mattress stuffed with feathers or in?
closed in a box with feather lined
cushions, and after lifleeu hours the
dinner is spread as hot as if it had just
come oil' the fire, not more than three
or four degrees being lost at all events.
1 know a man who made a little
feather stuffed box on that idea and
put his newly boiled shaving water iu
it just before ho went to bed every
night, in the morning, when he got
up early and shaving water would not
have been easy to get off hand, he
opened the box and took out the water

Governmental Thermometers.
"The United States government

Suicides Want Solitude.
Dr. Cushing, a retired physician on
the West side, gave me an interesting
fact a day or so ago about suicide*.
'"Not once in a thousand times,"
said he. "do either men or women kill
themselves while in the presence of
another person. The tendency of the
suicidal mania is always toward soli?
tude. This is why, in all the asylums
of tin; land, people who have a dispo?
sition to kill themselves are always

then."?New York Star.

A Hoi* Through ills Bo?y.
"Lieut. Muncio, of the Sixty-first
Georgia regiment," said Capt. Tip,
"was one of the most remarkable men
I ever knew. He was a slender, ca?
daverous lookiugman, with apparent?
ly no physical strength, yet he lived
through what would havo killed a
dozen ordinary men, and is alive to?
day. In the early part of the war he
was shot through and tlirough. The
ball struck tho breast bone and shat?
tered it, I through his body
and aune out within an inch
of his spino between two ribs.
After a desperate strugglo for
life he recovered aud joined his
regiment. At the battle of Monaccasie
creek ho was again wounded, the boll
entering between the corresponding
ribs on the other side of his spine and
issuing from the same hole that the
first ball entered at. The second shot
must havo taken the passage inside
Muncio's body that the first ball made
in going in the opposite direction. He
was in prison with me later and ap?
peared to suffer no unusual pain."?

An all night clerk: There i3 one
thing you ought Lo take into consider?
ation when you talk about us?wo
have never struck. I read that state?
ment of one of the proprietors that ho
could go out in the street and whistle
and get all the clerks he wanted. I
don't doubt it. But I fancy thai if you
were sick you would rather not have
your medicine put up by a clerk who
had been whistled in like a dog. And
there is another fact about drug clerks
?they are about the onlyf clerks that
I know of who have not some sort of
protective union. Do you know why
that is; You never saw a drug clerk
in your life who didn't expect that
at some time or other he would have a
store of his own.
This is not true of all clerks in other
lines of business. The drug clerk must
therefore' take as much interest in his
employer's business as the employer
himself. The clerk knows that his
employer is doing well. I need not
tell you that there is money in thedrug
business. The clerk wants toget where
the employer is, some day. And when
he does ho will make his clerk work as
long as he works now. Now, if tho
carpenters and other fellows would
take this bit of policy or philosophy01"

Sllll Waiting for the Boy.
A -ail reminder of the great blizzard
is tho mental condition of a New York
man living in the fashionable part of
Lexington avenue not far from Thirty
seventh streoC^This man had an only
son, who wont out in a boat the day
before the blizzard came for a sail
down the bay. The boat was never
heard of after that ami the young
man very probably was lost. Vet the
father did not lose hope. Day after
day he waited for news of) his son's
rescue. Ho hoped that sot o vessel
had picked the little boat ill or that
by some other means the r, ly's life
was saved.
The body not having been found the
man could not believe the boy dead.
For weeks ho waited to hear some
news, but none came. Under the load
of grief his mind almost gave way,
and to this day the old man, whose
mind is now almost a wreck, expects
at tho least noise in the block to hear
that his son has been found.
If there is a sound of "hurrying feet
on tho pavement outside he will get up
to see if 11 ere is not a messenger boy
coming with news from his son. All
through the night he awakes at the
slightest noise, and his first inquiry
is whether tho news of his son's rescue
has come.?Cor. Baltimore American.
The rrigld Bostonlan.
It would be pleasant if Boston men
displayed a trifle more cordiality to
each other when they meet in society.
It is only too apt to be tho case that
intimate friends will meet in a draw?
ing room with hardly a nod of recog?
nition. So intent arc the men on mak
ing.a good impression on the hostess
or any other women who may bo pres?
ent that they ignore, perhaps uncon?
sciously, their male friends. If they
knew how ill bred such conduct ap?
pears to strangers, they would try to
reform it. There is every reason why
men who move in the same circle and
meet each other constantlyshould greet
each other with civility in society.
Even when thero may bo enmity be?
tween them a nod and a decent recog?
nition are demanded by tho usage of
polite life. To cause a scene or to al?
low tho hostess to" feel that there is
anything uncomfortable in the air is a
breach of good breeding.?Boston Sat?

Thu Deceased Wife's .Si.ilcr.

Secret of Sleep Is Regularity.
The experience of a night worker
has led to some philosophical and logi?
cal conclusions. It seems that his
duties were of a nature to keep him
awake until tho. joy and freshness and
exhilaration of tho dawn banished all
desire for sleep. Ho.tried-to read him?
self to sleep, to count himself to sleep,
to think himself to sleep, and to use
a little Christian science and imagine
he was asleep, all to no purpose. Ho
deflected his eyes downward until ha
was nearly crosseyed. He darkened
the room, and lie dimly lighted it. He
put his poor head on the pillow and
under the pillow, on the loungoand on
the floor. He tried and wore out every
sleep producing drug known. Finally
he became really ill, and was bundled
oil to the country to recuperate.
He went to bed at 10 o'clock because
every one else did. He rose at 7 for
the same reason, when lo! the desired
cure was brought about when he least
expected it. Aftor a little he went to
sleep and wakened with the regularity
of clockwork. In accordance with
his experience he advises every one to
go to bed at a certain hour every night,
whether they are sleepy or not, and to
arise at a certain hour in the morning,
whether they feel refreshed and wake?
ful or not. Nature is a creature of
habit, and after his harrowing experi?
ence With drugs and nostrums he has
decided that nature is the only ph'ysn
ciku whb can cure insomnia.--*'
