THE RACKET.
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!”

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

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

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.

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

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’

“ 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
