Interesting Episodes in the Life of Mrs. Jessie Bartlett-Davis. Like most singers born to achieve t distinction and success, MIrs. Jessie Bartlett-Davis who made herself such a favorite in this city, as one of the leading artistes of the Carleton Opera Company, has had a most curious and interesting history. Born early in 1800, she began in childhood to evince a fondness for music, and her voice charmed and pleased the schoolmates at the private schools she attended in her girlhood. She was always sing ing and romping, and her lively viva cious manners made her a general fa vorito with her companions. One day in April, 1870, she suddenly disap peared from home and although search was made for her in the large city of Chicago, where her parents then re sided, no trace or clinue of her where abouts could be found. The Italian padrones with their hand organs and monkeys then infested the city and it was known that they had no scruples in kidnapping children, whom they trained as singers and beggars for the purpose of earning a livelihood for themselves. Seoarch was made in the Italian quarters without success, and a week passed by before the young girl was found. Finally the alert do tectives captured her in the suburbs of town, where one of the lazzaroni was training her in a small hut in the art of mendicancy and song, intend ing to ship her to Philadelphia to a partner padrone after her "education" was completed. When found she was in rags and tatters, her hair had been cut off close, she was dressed in boy's clothes, and had it not been for cer tain distinctive peculiarities, would have been almost unrecognizable. Her parents who were almost heart broken with grief, were overpowered with joy when their darling was re turned to their arms and they then began to give her voice the special training of which it was in need. In 1873, her father who had up to that time been in comfortable circium stances, lost everything in the panic that swept the entire country. He was compelled to withdraw from his daughter the advantages of a first class musical education, to the accom plishment of which purpose he had long looked forward to as the one great object of his life. But Miss Jessie was not to be daunted and with that pluck and enegy which has char actorized her every effort through life, she applied for, and obtained a clerk ship in the money-order department of the Chicago postolhice. Her salary was between ~j00 and $S0t) a year and with that she helped .sulpport the fan ily and pay for the services of ia vocal teacher. Finally she obtained a posi tion in one of the leading church choirs of Chicango, and with the re eeipts from that source and by giving occasional concerts, inllllged to llake quite a smug smltu atnnully. Colonel 3Maplestoin heard of her while in Chi cago and offered to take h(er abroad and give her a tIhre years couriso in one of the best conservatories in Eu rope if she would consent to give hill three years of her service free of charge, after her course had been completed. She cogitated over the matter and began a course of study looking towards the acceptance of the proposition, but sho finally com cluded that six years of her life spent in that way would not be a sutlicient conopeinistioii for the results to be at tained. Abou-t 187) sthe joined the Chicago Church Choir Pinafore Com pany, making her first appearance at Haverly's. She then travelled all through the Northwest, playing "BUlt torcups" for 300 nights and then tak up the operas, of Iolanthe, Patience, Fatinitz, &c. After throe years hard work sIhe went to Neow York City where she placed herself under the tutorship of a distinguished maestro. Beilig an apt student, by dilligent llap pilication she managed to make rapid strides in 'her profession, and 31Mine. Patti, to whom she was introduced, took great interest in her and fro quontly spoke words of cheer and oncouragement. One night Maple son called upon her to sing the part of "Siaobl" to 1Mine. Patti's Maurgneo rite in the opera of Faust, iand the romanza which she sang to "Margue rite" was so touchingly rendered, that Mine. PIutti then and there kissedher, amid the wildest applause and enthu siasm on the part of the audietnce. A Qa,.cer-l losltoi M.irlhailt. A .uttu IIOreuLd who li ved and died on Summer street, tas a curious inistance of one who had bccn an in valid from childhood, always cxtrnme ly hypochrondriac, who never imag ined himself ill whlen ho was not, nor exaggerat.ed his zatual illhness, nor faroed, unduly, sickness or pain, or death itself. lint it wau tihe business of his life to take care of his health; and he devoted himself to this work with wonderful assiduity. He rode just so far each day, when the weath er was fair, and at such an hour. He had a great variety of clothing, which he regulated with precision by the thermometer, sometimes changing his dress many times in a day; and se lected for his over-clothes, when he rode out, the very garments which the morcury indicated. He had a weathercock put on his stable, within fair view from his bed room and sitting room; a:td that and his thermometer, and possible or im p)Ossible signs of the weather, he was watching constantly, and found in these occupations a very agreeable way of employing all his day and all his days. How far his long life is to be attributed to this excessive care it is hard to tell: but he outlived every brother and sister, every brother's wife and every sister's husband, and his own wife, and died in 1837 at the age of 81. One of the Professions. The most successful voudon doctor in Washington half fills a skillet with water and into it drops two silver coins. He then directs the dupe to choose one to represent himself and the other his enemy. While the water is made to boil, thus making the pieces dance, the conjuror drops in the feathers of a black chicken, repeating at the same time a mysterious form of words. By slyly manipulating the vessel, he finally brings the client atop of his ene my, as represented by the coins, thus satisfying him so well that he willing ly pays the $5 charged for the good omen. Living on "Cheek." There are thousands of men in New York who have the reputation of liv ing at first-class hotels and who hold such a reputation for years by virtue of pure, undaunted and copper rivet ed cheek. They live in cheap rooms, or rather a room, for few men enjoy the luxury of more than one apart ment in New York, though they usu ally speak of their abode in the plural number, eat at cheap restaurants, but always wear a high hat and a frock cont. They seldom visit a theatre, spend little money for drinks and doe vote all their evenings to the hotel which they honor with their "patron age." They reciove their letters there, pick up a bowing acquaintance with the clerk and occuy a cozy seat all the year round. They know by ex perience exactly whenre it is coolest in summer and warmest in winter, and they really have more enjoyment of I he corridors, writing rooms and other conveniences of the hotel than many of tilh, gues(ts who pay the highest prices for hoard.- Brooklyn Eagle. (iaitaell (i'srse. "Guitanu's curso is very active now adays," remarked a imrblid citizen to a Critic reporter. "The murder of O(licer IFoiwler, one of the three lnoullntel 11men who guarded the assas sin's van, is a striking atddition to the long list of tragic deaths and misfor tues that havoe overtken jurors, doie tors, deitectives, bailiffs, jailers, police men, attorneys, and atliiost every kind of individual conlm('cted directly or imidirectly with the issassiin's imnpris Ollllollnt, conlvictionI, itand execution. "1'he list of misfortunes as publish edl from time to time began almost as soon Its thei' Issassin had uttered his tragic erus e, tand hais included delathis, sicknllss, insanity, loss of position, prosoeution and pl(ersecultion, scandal, etc. Amomng the latest entries in the list iare the mmunder of Officer Fowler, thel tragic death of Dr. Woodward, and the United States hotel disaster, for whi .h Judge Cox, who sentonced (luiteou, has been found partially re spjonsible by a coroner's jury. "I canl remember the evening the verdict was rendered, when the ap proaching night and the blinding snow had d(arkeined the court room, and the lanmps and candles placed on the beinch and counsel tables threw fitful shadows across the room. The verdict was rendered amid the most intense silence. A spontaneous mur mur of something like applause greeted it, and then the assassin, glar ing like a wild beast swaying to and fro in an agony of fear and anger, in voked the awful curse upon all who raised ia finger against him, or by any word or deed aided in his confinoment and conviction. "It was a very impressive minute. The assassin's actions then were much more horrible and thrilling than in the moment of his death upon the scaffold." The two tiny satellites of Mars, which were discovered by Professor Asay: Hall in 1877, have diameters of loss than ten miles each, and are the smallest celestial bodies known. The Richest Redskins. Of all the Indians in the United States, says a corrospondent, the Crows are perhaps the richest, as they certainly are the laziest. According to their own estimate they number 1,100 women, 900 men, 770 boys and 670 girls-8,500 in all, about 800 in excess of what the interior depart ment at Washington has it. The Crows have 4,718,000 acres re served to them, which comprises some of the very best agricultural and graz ing lands in the United States. Their reservation is in Custer county, Mon tana, and contains more land than some of the States of our Union. It is situated on the south bank of the Yellowstone River, with a frontage of nearly one hundred miles on that stream, and takes in complete the beautiful valleys of the Little and Big Horn rivers, besides many other rich meadow lands made fertile by the numerous streams which take their rise in the Big Horn mountains. It is indeed a beautiful country, and the Indians know it as well as the whites do; for it was in the same beautiful valley of the Little Horn, eight years ago, that Sitting Bull and his thous and warriors, rather than give up their birthright to the pale faces, fought General Custer and his soldiers until the last cavalryman lay dead on the field. Ever since that memorable day in 1870 the Sioux have had no home. They were hunted by the United States and renegades of their own tribe, were driven about from point to point all over Northern Montana, and final ly compelled to capitulate to Colonel Ilges and the military at Poplin river on June 7, 1880. As soon as the last Sioux Indian was made a prisoner, Congress took in hand the matter of their inheritanct and by an agree ment made with the Crows on June 12, 1880 (five days after the surrender), and approved by Congress on June 11, 1872, the Crow Indians fell heir to the very lands the Sioux Indians had forfeited for reason of being at war with the United States government. This was the bitterest pill the Sioux had ever been forced to swallow. It distressed them more to see their hated foes established in their own beloved home than all the losses they had sustained in the Little Horn fight. But the Crows are there, free to roam at will over four million acres of beautiful mountain and river lands, while their ancient enemies, the un fortunate Sioux, are penned up at Pino Ridge, Standing Rock and other agencies, under the survoilance of the military, virtually prisoners of war. Of these four million seven hundred and thirteen acres belonging to the Crows at least one million acres are capable of the highest cultivation. Yet, during all of last year and up to the present date, there were but ten acres cultivated by the government for the Indians, and one hundred and twenty-live acres tilled by the Crows themselves without the assistance of anybody. From the one hundred and twenty-five acres handled by the red men were obtained about one thous and five hundred bushels of vegeta bles, which were consumed entirely by themselves. Last youear the Crows put up thirty-five tons of hay and cut over three hundrod cords of wood. The winter months, as is the custom among all tribes, were spent in hunt ing for game among the mountains and on the plains. But the Crows. with a keener in sight than is possessed by ordinary redskins, have always kept an eye to business as well as to pleasure, and in conseqennce they returned from their last winter'; hunt with not only a goodly supply of meat for their squaws and papooses, but also with nine thousand dollars worth of robes, furs, peltries and skins. The princi pal wuealth of the Crows lies in their large and fine herds of ponies, which are unequalled on the continent for mottle and endurance. Cuss Hiam. Mr. B3ranner was president of the East Tennessee & Virginia Railroad twenty years ago. Of haughty disposi tion, he was rated overbearing and hard to got along. Alock Whalen, an engineer, run ning from Knoxvillo to Bristol, a jolly good follow of some three hundred pounds, always seemed to got along with the "boss." One day a brother engineer came to Alock and told of some grievance for which he hold the president responsible, and asked what he should do. "Cuss him," said Aleck, "Cuss him." "You don't care to do that, do you, AleckI" "Yes, whenever old Brannor cusses you; cuss back, that's the way I do." The engineer went away, and Aleck laughed. In a few days he came back, the perfect picture of despair he had followed the advice to "cuss" Branner, and had been discharged. Ho told Aleck of his woes. "Where was Branner when you cussed him?" asked Aleck. "Why, here in Knoxville." "Where was yout" "I was here, of course. "Oh, that won't do; when Branner begins to cuss in Knoxville, I wait till I get to Brist ristol before I begin. You must never cuss when you are at the same end of the line with Brannor." ----.---~-- A Masher Pays the Fare. "I think I rather'got the best of a young masher the other day," said the gentlemanly and efficient conduc tor No. 40,050, of the iMelrose horse railroad, to a Boston Globe reporter. "He was one of that kind that makes you sick, a fellow that's always imag ining he's paralyzing some girl's heart, no matter where he is, and makes a nuisance of himself by grin ning at every young lady he sees. This particular spider-legged young gentleman got on my car last Sunday, and just a minute later three women, from the 'Crystal Palace,' I guess, or some such locality, *crowded them selves on to the same seat. The dude was all broke up by their being on the same seat with them, but just thou a pretty girl came in and took the only seat there was- on the other side and next in front-and the young sap head turned his attention to her. She was just little goose enough to smile at him, and he thought he was getting along first rate when I came around to take the fares. The dude hauled out four in a strip, and reached 'em out for me to pull off one. Then I saw my chance and grabbed the four, punched 'em quick, and went along. Well, sir, that girl just cast one look of horror at the dade and another at the three creatures he had paid for, and she sat herself around aud never looked back again. The dude was too paralyzed to open his head; he just dropped off the car and made his escape." Red Cloud to the Sioux Scholars. Red Cloud, the well-known Sioux chief, visited the government school for Indians at Carlisle, Pa., and ad dressed the scholars in his own lan guage. A prize of $8 was offered for the best translation of this speech. We give agportion of the successful report, made by Luther Standing Bear. "You seem like my grandchildren; and now I went pass through the shops and saw what you can be done. I saw the shoemaker, harnessmaker, tailor, carpenter, tinner, blacksmith, and they all doing well. Here you see I wear a boots which is you make it. I,was surprise that the blacksmith doing very good. Also the girls can washing clothes and soewing. Also I went pass through the school rooms and I saw some of you can write very fast and read, and I was glad. Now, this is the thing what we send you here for, to learn white mon's ways. There is two roads, one is good and one is what we call a devil road.

A man who has passed much time trapping and hunting in Alaska says; Although the Yukon Indians have abandoned many of their old customs, under the teaching of occasional mis sionaries, all of them still keep to the queer habit of tattooing. The way they do this is different from any I ever saw or heard of. Instead of pricking the stuff in with sharpened bones or needles, they make a paste out of charcoal and grease, soak a thread in it, punch a noodle through the flesh, and then draw the thread through under the skin. The opera ration is painful, for the flesh swells up and looks very much inflamed. Mon tattoo only their hands and wrists, with pictures of the nobler an imals, or fish, but the women tattoo their faces also. These latter begin the procoss when they are very young, making birds, turtles, or some other insigniffcant things on their hands and wrists, while they draw lines of different kinds on their ,chins and the lower part of the cheeks. As a rule, this tattooing is done entirely in blue, but now and then there is an Indian who has dotted rod spots through the blue.

On this rock I have found two stone tablets, one of which contains a representation of the world, part of Africa and Asia, united to Europe, and this continent.

Mr. Graham, an Englishman, with the help of two Swiss mountain guides, has recently made an attempt to ascend some of the lofty peaks of the Himalayas. Starting from Nyuge Tal, he found his first difficulty, and not an insignificant one, to be to get to the mountains. They stand. far back, and are approachable only through valleys occupied by large streams. The first attack was made upon Dunnagiri, which is 28,184 Pet high. In order to reach it they hdii to climb over, two peake 17,000 and 18,000 feet high, and then, after. lRre days' march, they camped on a g.g cier at the height of 18,400 feet,. On the sixth day they reached the height of 22,500 feet, when, a snow storm coming on, they were compelled to retreat, after they were come in 'ght of their goal. Mr. Graham obse.e. that the peaks of the ~yrlalsysJ, h. a rule, are considerably steeper. thb those of the Alps, and he is coqvince that breathing is no more digie1 at the height he reached than at.
