A teacher in the Sunday school
Had taught her pohe.ars few
The truths, which scholars ought to know
Who read the Bible through.
But on the day herein set down
A new one had come in —
A little lad with keen bright eyes,
And innocent of sin.
Tho teacher asked them all around
Such questions as she thought
Would tit their minds and bring about
The object that she sought.
They knew of Adam and his sin—
Of Paul and Peter, too;
Of Jacob, Joseph, David, Saul,
And him his brother slew.
And the teacher asked her class
If any one could tell
Who Pliaro was? "Of course,” she said,
• ‘ You known that very well.”
But, strange to say, no hand arose,
And silence with a blow,
Had struck the class, and not one
The answer seemed to know.
At last the new boy’s hand went up—
•• Well, who was Pliaro, lad ?”
The teacher smiled—the new boy said:
" ’Twas him that busted dad.”

“ Can I get a stalking light?”
“A what?” said Col. Spalding.
11A stalking light; one of the kind
you use in stalking deer,” replied the
stranger. “ I am going up to Esca
naba to shoot, and I understand that
it is the proper thing up there to stalk
for deer. ”
” It was last Summer, but it isn't
this,” said the Colonel, as a National
League smile overspread the diamond.
The stalking light is a sore spot
with the big chief of the Chicago Club.
In August last eight mighty Canada
hunters left civilization for Escanaba.
There they hired five guides and
wagons sufficient to transport their
cannon, canoes and provender to a
point 40 miles from human habitation.
They had been in camp two weeks,
playing practical jokes on each other
and hunting a little, and all the time
Col. Spalding had been threatening to
go stalking for deer. Johnny Cole,
the hardware man, kept telling pro
digious stories of the time when fie
stalked deer every night in Elk county,
l’onn. He said he could not do it
now, for carrying the light on his
head made it ache, but fie would go
along, and Col. Spalding thanked him
and promised him an annual pass to
the ball games. The eventful night
came and the big reflector was put on
top of the six-footer’s head. He
looked like the devil in “ Black
Crook," but lie said lie could not see a
thing with it on.
“ Come out to the place where the
horses are grazing,” said Cole, and
with tiis trusty Winchester and 300
rounds in his belt he and the Colonel
sallied forth.
The horses snorted and roared as
tho giant w itti the bull’s-eye helmet
came among them. One patient brute
glared in wonder, and Cole called the
Colonel’s attention to the eyes oi lire.
Then lie told how a deer’s eyes looked
more like balls of fire and that they
would often remain motionless for five
or six shots, so great was the power of
the stalking light.
The Colonel and Cole had not gone
fur when there was a swish of a bush
(with a string tied to it), Cole bring
ing the light to a standstill, while they
both agreed that the “ balls of fire ”
were there. The Colonel was nerv
ous, and the -Winchester went off be
fore he was ready, so he explained to
Cole in a whisper, for the shot had no
visible efTect on the deer.
“ Shoot again,” said Cole, and
Spalding replied that never having
shot at a deer he was blankety nerv
ous, etc., but down wont the lever,
and for five shots the eyeballs gleamed
just the same.
Tho Colonel had been in such a
state of excitement that he sank down
exhausted, and Cole went and fetched
the tomato can with its two holes and
candle in it. There was not a mark
even on tho stump. There is a stalk
ing light for sale cheap.—Chicago

Bald-Headed Men or Old.
Scientific journals continue to ex
plore from time to time for a universal
reason for bald heads, and a writer
in one of them has lately declared
that men are bald only because they
wear stilf and close-fitting hats which
compress the blood vessels of the
scalp and prevent proper nourishment
of the hair roots. It is a theory
marked by the weakness which dis
tinguishes'the bulk of generalizations.
The prophet whom the boys mocked
was before stiff hats were in vogue,
and men are bald in quarters of the
world which the hat of civilization
has never invaded. Doubtless some
men are made bald by their hats, but
all baldness is no more to be charged
to them than it is to be charged to the
North American Indians.—The Epoch.

The stone torture was usually the
first cruelly practiced upon a prisoner,
says the Manchester Courier, describ
ing the judicial punishments of old
Japan. He was forced to prostrate
himself face downward upon the
apexes of live triangular-shaped blocks
of hard wood, the front of his legs be
ing exposed to the sharp edges. While
securely held in this position heavy
stones were placed on the victim’s
thighs, and others were slowly added
to increase the terrible weight—until
he became unconscious or signlicd his
intention to confess.
The box torture was a still more
atrocious contrivance. Bound hand
and foot, the culprit was forced into a
strong box about two feet square, hav
ing a covering made to fit the inside
and callable of being lowered or raised
at will. Heavy weights were placed
upon it, and as these were increased
in number, depressing the lid, the
poor wretch within the box was slowlv
crushed to death.
AH using me water torture it was be
lieved that the torment of thirst
would induce a prisoner to confess his
guilt. After several days’ subsistence
on a salt diet, without rice and water,
the accused was shut in a room where
he could see and hear the dropping of
water on all sides, but out of reach.
The cravings and sufferings became
fearful under the agony, “often ap
proaching the bounds of insanity.
Deprivation of sleep was effected bv
placing the criminal upon a bed or
mat, over which a small stream of
water was continually flowing. At
tendants were in readiness, and at the
slightest indication of slumber they
would rouse their victim by ring ng
bells, beating drums, or the applica
tion of fire to his body. The treat
ment rendered sleep impossible; the
poor wretch’s mind became disordered
under the torture and oftentimes left
him a raving maniac.
The old style of trial in Japan in
cluded only about four persons—the
Judge, the Secretary, the torturer and
the accused. The latter was taken
into the examination room securely
bound, and was forced to kneel dur
ing the investigation of his case. If
he persisted in remaining mute, or ap
peared to equivocate in his reply to
the questions addressed to him, the
“ investigation whip” was usedsmart
ly—an instrument callable of inflict
ing great punishment, made of three
long strips of bamboo cane. Should he
continue stubborn, a much heavier
whip was applied, the torturer repeat
ing the blows until the prisoner either
yielded or faited under the terrible in
fliction. But no fatal injuries were
permitted to be inflicted during these
preliminary investigations; and a
Judge causing the application of tor
ture to innocent persons, or to those of
very advanced or tender years, or to
pregnant females, was himself liable
to severe punishment.

A Detroit, Mich., dispatch Bays:
Eddie McCormick is 7 years old,
bright as the newest silver dollar,
quick at repartee as a polished lawyer,
could give the author of the great
American game of draw poker points
on fine play, sings like a young Cam
panini, and is altogether one of the
most precocious children ever removed
by his own volition from paternal re
straint. Eddie was arrested here re
cently by one of Pinkerton’s sleuths
from Chicago, where the boy had run
away from his father’s house, at No.
77 Dearborn Avenue, six weeks ago to
see the world on his own hook. Mc
Cormfck, pere, is a responsible em

lives in tine style and is the father of
a musical family.
Little Eddie has a remarkable voice
for one so young, and was found de
lighting by his songs a crowd of men
in a well known sporting saloon, lie
objected to going home, saying his
papa was too strict with him for com

fully dodged the detectives, often dis
appearing just in the nick of time,

One clay last week a lady student of
Cornell University discovered that her
name was incorrectly given in the list
of students, and hastened to the lteg
istrar’s office to have the error cor
rected. “ Are you engaged just now?”
was the first question asked the Keg
istrar, in blissful ignorance of the
lady’s mission, and whose mind evi
dently was wandering in matrimonial
channels. “ No, indeed,” replied the
gallant official, with some little em
phasis, his face at the same time be
coming the very embodiment of pleas
ant anticipations of the approaching
leap year. “ Well, then, l should like
to change my name,” said the fair vis
itor. “Oh, you would!” gasped the
young man, his countenance radiant
beyond all expression. And then the
young lady undertook to explain mat
ters more in detail, much to the dis
comfiture of the assistant. The story
got out, and now there is hilarity in
all the college circles.
A Convenience for Tired Men.
One of the recent improvements at
a famous New York uptown hotel
much frequented by Englishmen is
the electric bell indicator. It is in the
form of a dial. You press a button,
and at the same time turn a dial hand
to the point wherever,in writing, is ex
posed the name of the object you de
sire—” brandy and soda,” “ wash
list,” “ porter,” “ ice water,” “ gin
fizz,” etc. It is an ingenious contriv
ance, and gives great delight to the
Englishmen, though queer mistakes
occur, especially late at night, when
the trembling fingers sometimes push
the needle too far, and a scuttle of
coal comes up instead of the wished
for cocktail. _
A Cure for Ruuut.
Young lady (endeavoring to enter

Mr. I’okerdeck (graciously)—Yes,

Brother Blaine Receives Cold Com
tert Irmn the Leading Journals of
the Country.
A New York dispatch of Dec. 9
says: In commenting on the Blaine
interview the Times remarks: This,
then, is the sum of the Blaine pol
icy, and, as he is the leader of
the Republican party • at present, it
must be taken as the policy of the Ite
Upblicans until they repudiate it, and
it would be well for them to hasten to
do it. It is not a policy that .they can
go before the people with.
The Tribune says: Blaine in Eu

land in America speaks as a British
manufacturer, anxious to be admitted
without any charge to a share of the
best and largest market in the world.
The World says: The Maine states
man’s interview is in fact a proclama
tion that Blaine considers himself to
be the chosen champion of protection
and that he is ready to enter the Pres
idential list again as such. President
Cleveland stands for this purpose.
Blaine comes forward as the cham
pion of the opposite idea. The Demo
cratic party could not ask for a better
The Sun says: If Brother Blaine
entertains such loose notions of the
relations between the Federal Gov
ernment and States it strikes us that
he would he a conspicuously unfit per
son to intrust with the management
of the nation’s financial affairs.
The Chicago Tribune, commenting
editorially on Blaine’s message, says:
Blaine, as might have been expected,
has presented high tariff’ protection
from a partisan point of view as an
opposition issue to the President’s
view on tariff reduction. Blaine’s in
terview will have to stand upon its
merits and it will be indorsed or con
demned in accordance with the value
of the arguments set forth, and public
judgment will not bo influenced by
the distinguished name behind them.
It is the weakest ground Blaine has
ever yet occupied, and no national
party can expect to go into a Presiden
tial campaign on that issue, no matter
who may be its leader, and win. The
surplus question must be settled in
some way and in a different way from
what it. has been settled. It cannot
be settled in accordance with the
Blaine idea.
Mrs. Cleveland's Clever Stroke.
A Washington dispatch says: Some
days ago State Senator Hart, of the
Pennsylvania District in Virginia, re
ceived a very pretty and graceful note
from Mrs. Cleveland. The verbatim
report of a speech he had made dur
ing the State campaign, in which he
eulogized the President warmly, got to
Mrs. Cleveland’s hands, and to ex
press her gratitude she wrote him,
thanking him with great feeling. It is
hardly necessary to say that Mr. Hart
is a more rabid Cleveland man than
ever, and that the Pennsylvania Dis
trict will send a Cleveland delegate to
the next National Convention.

“ You are not as strong as you used
to be, John,” said a fond wife to her
husband. “ I think it is about time
you were getting some insurance on
your life.”
“Insurance on my life! What are
you talking about? 1 am as healthy
as I ever was. Insurance, indeed!”
“ Well, my dear, I only mentioned
it out of respect for yourself. I thought
you were failing?”
“ And what in the world put it into
your head that I am failing?”

with an emphasis that nearly par
alyzed him. He returned to the Cap

must be great, as the men were blas

thing; but drink nothing at meals,
and in a few minutes after rising from
the table drink a cup of hot water

The Silver State correctly remarks:
General Alexander baa prepared a
circular letter and addressed it to all
the newspapers and prominent miners,
farmers, stockmen and business men
generally of tbe State, his object be
ing to obtain reliable |pformation as to
the varied resources of Nevada, for
the purpose of inducing capital to in
vest here. His purpose being lauda
ble and designed to benefit every in
terest, everybody should make an
honest endeavor to furnish him the
desired information. Nevada has vast
mining and agricultural resources, but
save in exceptional cases, capital is re
quired to develop them. Tbe hun
dreds of millions produced from its
mines have been invested outside the
State, for, until,within a comparatively
recent date, Nevada was looked upon
as a good place to make money and
then move away from. Now it is dem
onstrated that its soil, which was
looked upon as worthless, is as fertile
as any on the continent, and capable,
where water can be had for irrigation,
of producing in abundance all the ce
reals, fruits and vegetables of the
temperate zone. Its climate is unsur
passed for healthfulness and is rarely
excessively hot or cold. The fevers
so prevalent in many States are un
known here, and the lung diseases of
New England are not generated in
this atmosphere. Its mineral re
sources are unequaled in richness
and extent, and with the improved
methods of reducing ores, now being
invented, many gold and silver bear
ing leads heretofore considered vain
less, can be profitably worked. Capi
tal is abundant in the East and seek
ing investment in less promising en
terprises than Nevada affords, but
that fact must lie made apparent to
the moneyed men of the country. To
do this the products and resources of
every section should be given all the
publicity possible, and as that is the
object of General Alexander’s in
quiry, he should receive all the data
that can be furnished from every min
ing camp, agricultural valley and
stock range in the State.

“ What was the occasion?”
“ I was drunk, and did it on a bet
of i|i5. The bet was that I daren’t walk
out on the platform and take the
jump without picking out my ground.
As it happened, the ground was
pretty clear, but a million dollars
wouldn’t hire me to try it again.”
“ llow did you come out?”
“ Well, it’s hard to describe the
sensation. As I sprung from the step
1 seemed to fly. I sailed along in the
air until my wings grew tired, and
then I dropped down to see the
country. I’ve got a good pair of eyes,
but I didn’t see much. I was too
busy turning cartwheels and hand
springs and somersaults. Sometimes
I beat the professionals all hollow',
and again I made a muss of it. It
was my intention to skip all the mud
puddles and avoid all the stumps, but
you can’t always have your way in
