They came adown the dusty road, And crossed the velvet green; A manlier figure never strode Beside a maid serene. What was the racket ? She was a light and lithesome lass, With eyes of azure hne; She left no footprint on the grass, Beneath her fairy shoe. What was her racket ? In tennis court they take their place— A net divides the pair; But soon its meshes interlace Their hearts within its snare. Ah, what a raoket! She thought him rich, and of her wealth He’d heard such wondrous tales, That forth by night they steered l.y stealth, And spread their marriage sails. The same old racket! Now both are puffy, poor and proud, With many mouths to fill; And when the children shriek aloud He says with right good will: “ Oh, blow that racket!” —Boston Gazette, THE GAS TREATMENT. A I.nwrcncevllle Consumptive Not Binrllteil by tbe Now Treatment or That Mulatto?. Pittsburg, Oct. 15.—Miss Mary Rivers a widely-known and estimable young lady of Lawrenceville, is now dying at the residence of her mother, on Forty-fourth street, from consump tion. Her case excited much inter est among the medical fraternity and those who are threatened with diseases of the lungs, her partial recovery be ing at one time cited as an example of the effective work of the new cure for consumption known as the gas treat ment. During the Spring months of this year the young lady contracted a severe attack of pneumonia, which gradually developed into consumption. Two of the best physicians in the city were called in and pronounced her in curable. An earnest advocate of this new treatment was called and attended. The cure was said to have benefited her, and all she needed was to gather strength, but after a short period a relapse took place, and she will not re cover. The treatment, of which so much was expected, consists in pass ing carbonic acid gas through a mix ture of water and sulphide of hydro gen, which forms a gas known as sulpheretted hydrogen; this was in jected into the bowels and from thence into the lungs, where it was claimed that it would destroy the germs of the disease, and while the gas was yet in the lungs it would come in contact with the blood and be transmitted by it throughout the entire system. The cure had at first many advocates and was adopted by many of the leading physicians of the city, but many on finding that no cure could be effected and but little relief given, it was grad ually abandoned. She Saved Her Sou’s Life. Much interest has been felt in the little son of Pat Pierce, who was bit ten on the leg by a moccasin last week. As was then stated, as soon as the mother, who was about 20 feet away, heard the child scream she ran to it, picked it up and in less than two minutes had it on the bed and was sucking the wound. There were three little punctures in the skin, each about the size of the head of a pin and formed a triangle. When she had sucked two mouthfuls of blood from the wound she gave the child whisky, and also soaked a lot of tobacco and whisky and applied it to the leg. When the physician arrived he soaked some tobacco in water instead of whisky, and this was the only change he made in the mother’s rem edy. The result has been watched for with considerable interest. An hour after the remedies were applied, with the exception of the effect produced bv taking whisky into the system and the fact that the little punctures re mained in the skin, the child was up and about just as though he was never snake bitten. The tobacco and whisky were necessary, but the main remedy was the prompt sucking of the wound by the mother.—Macon Telegraph. The March or Cullure in the Weal, Ed Scheffelin, who sold out the cele brated Tough nut mine in Arizona for something like $1,000,000, went to Smartsville, Nev., to examine a gravel mine. Mr. Scheffelin wears his hair in long ringlets and is somewhat ec centric in his dress, but he has a big heart. He had determined to have the best of everything going, and reg istered at the Baldwin Hotel. When meal time came lie sought entrance to the dining-room in his shirt sleeves. The sable doorkeeper told him he must put his coat on before going in. Ed got mad at this infringement on his private rights and long-established custom, and exclaimed: “ I guess you don’t know who I am, you black rascal!” “ Hat don’t make no oddB, sir.” The honest miner was riled clear through and sent for Landlord Pearson. The landlord told him he must finish dressing before going to eat, no matter who he was. ABOUT CHEKKFDL HU. A Positive Reverence for H Sml|. In*, Rlnnil.Voiced Hen. If cheerful men were selling for ter cents apiece, and I had a thousand dollars to throw away, I wouldn’t buy one of them. I used to have a positive reverence, for a smiling, grinning, bland-voiced man. Many a time I’ve met Smith or Green or White on my way down town, and it would jump my soul a toot high to hear him call out: ■‘Well, my boy, beautiful morning, eh? Isn’t everything just lovely ? Why, 1 seem to be floating in mid-air! Why sir, I wouldn’t trade this earth for all the heavens ever preached about bv tlie ministers. Have a cigar? No? Then have a drink? No? Dear me! but what can I do to brighten you up and make you feel like an angel on roller-skates? ” And I’d stand off and look at him, and wonder if the land beyond the skies did really contain a hippier soul. All! the old hypocrite! I got to know in after years that his children were afraid of him, his wife trembled as he entered the door, and that it was his daily habit to growl out as he left the door: “ Wood! I bought $2 worth last we . • , that’s gone we’ll go without until Saturday. You are the most ex travagant woman in Detroit. I believe you bum it up to spite me. Soap! Didn’t I get a bar last Saturday ? If you let the children play horse with the soap you must take the conse quences. Go down on the ferry! I’d like to see myself lugging three or four young uns and a limping wife around town! ” Your habitually cheerful man is an old fraud and a liar. He is well dressed, while his children are the rag-bags of the neighborhood. He has a dollar for cigars when his wife wears a bonnet six years old. He passes for a whole-souled fellow with the public, but is a fault-finder at home. You’ll see him taking the cool breezes on the river, while his family are sweltering in a stuffy house on some back street. I want to see a man grin when there’s anything to grin at, but when Green gets up in the morning and declares he hasn’t had a meal fit to eat for the last three months, and that he can’t see why his wife is always groan ing around and his children always whining, he has no business to stop the first man he meets, with a smile clear back to his ears, and shout out: “ Why, old fel, how solemn you do look! Brace up, man—life is worth the living ten times over!” I used to reverence Green. He bad a grip of the hand like a carpenter’s vice—he had a voice as bland as June, he’d make a consumptive believe that nothing more than a sore heel was the matter. I used to lie in ambush for him just to hear his hearty vpico and see his serene countenance, and I’d go about my day’s work wondering what sort of a guardian angel he had. T found out one day when a policeman had to go in and stop him from beating his wife. When you mul a man who can grin over the servant girl’s jumping out at an hour’s notice, with wife flat in bed and children having a scarlet-fever look around the eyes, don’t you go off on a fishing trip with him. When a man can soar among angels with bill collectors ringing his door bell—last week’s grocery bill unpaid—the chil dren wanting shoes—the rent running behind, and his wife coughing the whole night long, lie’s an infernal old iraud, and ought to be kicked. When a chap who has frozen the children, iawedthe cook, and blasted his wife, as a sort of morning tonic before leav ing the house, meets you about a block :rom the gate and is troubled because pou haven’t got your angel harp on (four shoulder, keep your hand on any itray half-dollar you hapjien to have about. He’s mean enough to steal chicken broth from a boy with a aroken back.—M. Quad, in Detroit Free Press. A Turf Gambler’s Calculation. By picking four winners at Saratoga the other day you could have made over $250,000 on a little $10 note. These figures may appear to be a lit tle exaggerated, but I will show you how this amount might have been won. In the first race the odds against Mattie Lauraine were 10 to 1. By placing your $10 on Mattie at these figures you would have had $110 when the race was over. In the next race Miss Motley, who won, was another 10 to 1 chance. Had you put your $110 on Miss Motley you would then have had $1,210. In the Iroquois stakes bookmakers placed 20 to 1 against Branzomarte, who de feated Goliah, the favorite. Your winnings up to this stage had they been on the Branzomarte, would have been increased to $25,440. Warren ton, who won the steeplechase, was another 10 to 1 shot. Twenty-five thousand four hundred and forty dollars on Warrenton would have brought your total winnings on the four races up to $279,510.—Globe Dem ocrat. __ A Modern Diana. Madam Belli, an Italian resident of Humboldt county, is described by a correspondent of the Silver State as a modern Diana. She has a record of slaughtering a score of antlered mon archs of the glen during the past two years and faces undismayed the fiercest carnivora that roam the cattle ranges of Eastern Nevada. She is credited with possessing the beauty of Helen of Troy and a form rivaling that of Pliyrne. Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt's Plan. Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt lately wrote that he was negotiating for a place in southern France. It is understood to be his plan to establish residences in half a dozen attractive regions, so that he can Bhift his family from country to country as their whims may dictate. He will aim for the rest of his life to enjoy himself socially. Patent Brace and Bit. A Urge invoice of the new potent brace and bit, of Oavin A Oromer’a invention ia eipeoted in a few day a by Remington, Jobnaon A Co., they being the local agent, for the aale of them. Parties deairing them should aend in their orders to seonre early attention. * OCH COMING CENTENNIAL. That of the Inangnmllon ol Wash tiiKton, as First President. A reporter for the Mail andExpresB, met Col. E. J. Peyton, of New Jersey, at the Fifth Avenue Hotel on Saturday evening. The Colonel stated that he was in New York on personal busi ness, and whilst here had taken the liberty of calling the attention o( many of our prominent citizens to the importance of an appropriate celebra tion of the centennial of the inaugura tion of George Washington, which oc curred in the city of New York on the 30th of April, 1870, at the corner oi Wall and Nassau streets, where his statue by the Sculptor Ward now stands. He expressed his confidence that all the States will gladly partici pate, and as many of their Legisla tures meet biennially he deems it essential that the citizens of this city take preliminary steps at once. He further thinks that as the relations existing between our own and foreign governments have been both pleasant and profitable during the first century of our national life, it would be appro priate to extend to all foreign govern ments invitations to be represented. The present Congress which is to close the first century of constitutional government should, in respect to the memory of the Congress that opened the century, give the subject due con sideration. If the matter receives early and proper attention by the citizens of New York and the Govern ors of the Colonial States, it will bring together the largest body of citizens that have ever assembled' at any one time since the Government was es tablished. Said the Colonel: I know that the citizens of the Colonial States, one and all, desire to preserve the history of the foundation of this Government as it was estab lished by their forefathers, and it is a natural sentiment. “ What are your views in reference to a programme of ceremonies?” “ I think that the President of the United States should come from Washington in a carriage as Gen. Washington did, and in respect to lus memory, be received as he was at Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Trenton, and other places en route, and on his arrival here by the citizens of New’Yoik.” _ COLONEL OLNEY. He Uot There Jnsi the Name. At the time of the arrest of Judge Terry, by the Vigilance Committee of San Francisco, in 1856, for shooting Marshall Hopkins, Colonel Olney, the commander of the military forces of the Vigilants, was at his boarding house, several blocks distant from the scence. One of his men appeared be fore him almost breathless, informing him of what had taken place. In the discharge of his duty a few days pre vious, he had sprained his ankle so that he could scarcely stand upon his feet. But the thought that his absence might mar that day’s doings was not pleasant to entertain. There was not a moment to lose. To get a horse in that neighborhood was im possible, and he could not walk. What was to be done ? While thus speculating, every second seeming an hour, his eyes fell on the wagon of a kerosene dealer who had driven up and stepped to the side walk just as the alarm sounded. In a moment Olney was in the driver’s seat, and with reins and whip in hand was lashing the horses like a fury — toward the committee rooms. The driver had barely time to scramble up beside him as the horse sprang forward, scatter ing the affrighted people to either side. One glance into the sternly set fea tures of Olney’s face satisfied the driver that expostulation would bo in vain. Away they rattled down the street; the Colonel whipped and the kerosene flew. The empty cans danced out of the vehicle and the full ones overturned and scattered their contents upon the cobblestones. Pres ently the driver mustered courage and said: “ You are spilling my kerosene.” “ Damn your kerosene,” was the reply. Then remembering that thfs poor peddler should not be made to suffer for the daring deeds of chiv alry, the Colonel added, “ I will pay for your kerosene.” Arriving at headquarters, the Col onel called for his horse, a magnificent wliite steed, and was lifted to its back, and within a few minutes lie was in active command of the vigilance army.—Bancroft’s Pacific States. WORSE TUAN BRUTAL. A Little Orphan Chokeil. Beaten anil Tortured to make Her Con fees an Alleareil Lie. Pittsburg, Oct. 15.—A letter was yesterday received by the Humane Society from Levi Cline, of Greens burg, the society’s agent at that place, describing a most brutal case of cru elty to a little girl. He says he was asked by the Dexter Coke Company to investigate the case. The child was an orphan 5 years and 6 months of age, kept by a woman and her hus band, who live at the Donnelly Coke Works, near Scottdalo. The unfor tunate little girl was returned to her mother on September 19, and still bears the marks of her cruel treat ment. It is alleged that she had to get up at 4 o’clock in the morning and go a great distance to the mouth of a shaft and carry coal with which to cook breakfast. One day the woman thought she told a lie about some mat ter, it is said, and tried to make her confess by washing her mouth with soap suds and then scraping her tongue ami putting liniment on it to produce pain. Finally, a rope was placed around her body and thrown over a door, when she' was drawn up and down by her cruel tormentor. The agent placed in the hands of a Scott dale Constable a warrant for the woman’s arrest , and he is thoroughly determined to sift the whole matter. Another young lady has had the marriage ceremony i>erformed ‘‘just for a joke,” and is dissolved in tears, because the way out is not so easy as the way in. She is the daughter of a millionaire Wisconsin lumberman. There seems to be a good job awaiting the fool-killer in Wisconsin. WOOED AMD WDM BY LETTEB. A Young Missouri Merchant Starts for Australia to Marry a Woman He Mover Saw. San Francisco, Oct. 15.—Among the passengers who sailed for the anti podes on the steamer Alameda was William Milan, of St. Joseph, Mo., whose acquaintance with the young woman he hopes to make his wife savors somewhat of the romantic. Several months ago a relative oi Milan’s living in Cheswick, Australia, wrote a letter to the Missouri mer chant, telling him of the many vir tues of a young lady residing in Ches wick, whom the lelative described as being both handsome and wealthy. Mr. Milan immediately wrote to the young lady asking for a correspond ence. He described himself and iiis business outlook as favorably as possi ble and enclosed a photograph, fear ing that she might have a misguided opinion as to the physical appearance of a Missourian. Much to the young merchant’s sur prise the lady accepted his offer of a correspondence, and she in turn for warded a photograph of herself. Her stately and handsome figure, open countenance, large eyes, which she de scribed as being black, and the neat arrangement of her hair, together with the fact that she is an heiress, so pleased the Missourian that he pro posed, and in due time his offer of marriage was accepted. Upon receiv ing a letter notifying him that his suit was favored, Mr. Milan proposed an early marriage. The Australian heiress answered that the ceremony could take place as soon as he reached Cheswick. He immediately purchased an elegant home in St. Joseph and furnished it in first-class style. To a number of his intimate friends Mr. Milan stated that he would return to his Missouri home a Benedict. The groom to be is a man of about 30 years of age, tall, and with features such as are usually denominated handsome. Being rich, he was con sidered by the mothers of St. Joseph, or those of whom possessed marriage able daughters, the best catch in the country. Before leaving on the vessel for Australia, Mr. Milan could not be persuaded to exhibit the photograph of the fair one, although he acknow ledged having it in his valise. Some of Oscnr Wilde’s Vnrns. He told two the other day illustra tive of the disadvantages of the houses in a block being too much alike. A man was asked to dinner, and he went to the house next door to the one where he had been bidden. His name was announced, and his host stepped forward to welcome him. As it chanced, the guest knew the wife and not the husband. “ I am so very sorry,” said the host, “ that my wife is too ill to come down-stairs. But we must get on as well as we can without her.” Still thinking he was in the right place, the guest staid and took a pretty girl to dinner, and had a charm ing evening. Two days afterward he met the lady who was to have enter tained him, and she assailed him with reproaches for spoiling the symmetry of her dinner table, and it came out that he had inadvertently dined next door. The other tale was of a curious look ing old couple who went to an even ing party. They knew no one, and seemed desperately out of place. When the last guests were gone, the husband said to the wife. “ Queer old codgers those two old friends of yours.” “Of mine! Why, they were your friends, surely. I never saw them before.” “ Well, I’m sure I never did!” and inquiry elicited the fact that there was a servants’ ball next door, and that the old couple had meant to go there, and had been as uncomfortable as possible at not find ing any of their acquaintances. When Mr. Wilde told these stories they sounded true, but now I’ve writ ten them down, I really don’t think they do. However, “ I tell the tale ” as I heard it told; and also I’ll tell you another one, widely current in London that a certain ductless invited one of the cowboys of the American exhibi tion to dine, and he arrived at the ap nointed time with his wife and baby. He said there was no one to leave the baby with, so he had to bring him. The’baby was confided to the ducal nursery, and the dinner was served. It’s the fashion to tell this story, so you may as well believe it.—Boston Herald. __ Mrs. Cleveland's Railroad Lunch. They are telling this story which has just crept out about Mrs. Cleve land’s lunch in Philadelphia on her private ear as she was about to leave for Washington. As the train was about to start, the French head waiter from the hotel came in with his face as sad looking as a figure on a tomb stone. “Madam!" he exclaimed: “ Madam, something terrible has hap pened ! Ah, very terrible!” “What?” asked the President’s wife, in alarm, her face becoming pale. “You re member the luncheon?” “Well?” “ Wo came with it here too soon. And so we sent it back to the hotel to keep it warm. My waiters were not informed, and so they have left the luncheon behind.” Oh, it is noth ing,” answered Mrs. Cleveland, with the spirit of a martyr. “ Wo shall thrive; but, dear me, l am hungry. I forgive you now; but is there really nothing to eat on the car!” “Noth ing, madam, but some bread.” “Bread! Then we are all right.” “And some butter, madam.” “ Good!” “ And some tomatoes. We intended them for salad.” “Toma toes? We revel in luxury.” For half an hour afterward the first lady of the land gayly munched bread and butter and raw tomatoes. She expressed only one regret—that there was no salt for the tomatoes. _ A Onc-Armnl Printer. The Los Angeles Herald says: We have a printer working on the case who has only one hand. The left arm is"gone from the very Blioulder. With the right hand this brave fellow sets typo at a remarkably rapid rate, many of the “double-fisted” fellows not pulling out as “ long a string ” at the end of a night’ work. PIRATES AMD PETTICOATS. Clever Female Swindlers “Do” Cincinnati for 83,000. Cincinnati, Oct. 17.—A new and clever swindle has teen brought to light here. An elegantly dressed lady enters a store, selects some choice dress goods and ladies’ lingerie, and when the package is ready the buyer asks that the account be charged, giv ing the name of a good customer of the house who has an account there. The clerk does not see the buyer, but recognizes the name and charges the bill. The purchaser leaves the package at the store and goes away. Half an hour later she returns, says she has concluded not to have the goods sent to the house, but will take them di rectly to the dressmaker. Of course she gets them. The swindle was not discovered until the bills were ren dered the first of this month. When customers disputed their bills and an investigation was made it was discov ered that the thief had in every in stance purchased of clerks of whom the lady personated had never bought. How they found out who weie credit customers is not known. Among the firms victimized are Shillito & Co., Miller Bros. & Co., Pogue & Co., and Weatlierbv & Co. It is estimated that fully ifd.OOO worth of goods were so obtained. Two women were engaged in the swindle. PRESIDENTIAL I. SOCIAL TACT ICS. The Candidates fur (lie Presidency as Social Factors in Washington. Washington, Oct. 15.—Presidential politics is going to cut something of a figure in a social way in Washington this season. The town is going to be full of Presidential possibilities, par ticularly on the Republican side. Of course it is generally conceded that on the Democratic side the President and his wife are to be renominated. On the Republican side, however, there are several gentlemen and their wives who have an ambition in the Presi dential way, and they will all be active. There is Senator Sherman, for instance, who is an old campaigner. He has plenty of money and he will probably spend it freely this season. Senator Hawley, who is spoken of as a possibility and perhaps probability in the Presidential or a Vice Presi dential way, is to have a new wife, and will doubtless be active in the so cial world. General Sheridan, who is being boomed by Jay Hubbell and others, and who is really a more for midable Presidential possibility than many people are willing to admit, has a plentiful home on Rhode Island Avenue and will make it a good deal of a social center this Winter. Gen eral Black, the present Commissioner of Pensions, is strongly suspected of Vice Presidency aspirations, and will doubtless act accordingly. Post master General Vilas is ditto, and will doubtless be ditto in the social efforts, for he has plenty of money and has made a cord of it this Summer in the growth of his iron mines, and will make use of it if he sees it to his ad vantage. __ He was Uronl on Fanlliera. We encountered an old fellow sit ting on the steps of the Northern Pa cific depot at Miles City, Montana. His hair was very gray, and he had a somewhat dejected and foilorn ap pearance. A locomotive whistled shrilly down the track a mile or so, when he gave a start and pricked up his ears as it were, solemnly and ex pectantly. Then he said earnestly: “ Panthers!" He paused a moment and added: “Panthers, by gosh! Panthers, I say! Where's my gun?” “ Are you something of a panther hunter?” Briar asked. “ Pant’er hunter, eh ?” and the old man sank back and grasped his knees with his hands. “Pant’er hunter! I’m a pant'er killer! The only fun I have is pant’ers! I kill ’em, slaughter ’em, walk in ’em, wade in ’em, sleep ’mong their dead and dyin’ carcasses. I began pant’er killin’ back in Maine when I was a boy nigh unto 00 years ago, an’ I’ve got ’em drove back an’ killed off to here. Pant’er, young man, pant’er! I’m their nat’ral enemy—the killin’ an’ stackin’ ’em up is the joy of my declin’ years! An’ when it comes to the smaller members of the Pant’er family, why I kick ’em to death—wildcats, bob-cats, howl cats, hen-roost-cats, prairie-cats, lynxes, mountain lions, an’ reg’ler pant’ers ’fore they’re full growed! There, that critter is yellin’ again!—be here in about a minute—I must go an’ fit my gun! Say, lend me 10 cents, want to git me a box o’ caps for my rifle!” xiie iua.il was xiuguuaiuu auu mu um panther exterminator vanished. “ Is that man whom we were talk ing with over there an old hunter ?” I asked a man who was loading a freight car with buffalo bones. “ That old fellow! Well, he claims to be. lie came out from Connecticut about a year ago, and has been going on about his panther graveyard ever since, but he told me confidentially one day last Winter, after I lent him a bucket of coal, that he never saw a panther and never shot a gun but once m his life, and that was one Fourth of July over 40 years ago, and there wasn’t any bullet in it then.”—Chi cago Tribune.__ A Wild Han Terrorlzlnir de Town. The village of Mountain View, N. J., has a wild man sensation, and the inhabitants aro keeping their children very close to home. The wanderer has been seen on the outskirts of the town and in the w’oods, rushing along and shouting, “ I want grass! I want Srass!” He was captured on Satur ay morning and locked up in a little building near the railway. From this, however, he managed to escape, and has not since been seen.
