average there are about 42,000
in Buffalo. 'Now a cat that is
at all heavy will weigh t pounds,
which wouljl make in the ag
gregate 150,000 pounds of. cat.
When this cat is manufactured
into sausages, allowing for tho
addition of seasoning, and so
forth, it will yield, say 200,000
pounds. Good j square North
American sausages are worth
16 cents per pound. From this
we find that in the simple arti
cle pf cat sausages alone, the
city of Buffalo does a business
of $32,000. ; The manufacture
of, dog, liver, blood, , and other
sausages, which is here carried
on to a considerable extent, we
have not taken into account.
Had we poae so, the grand to
tal would doubtless have been
much larger. Enough has been
given to show that one branch
of business, at least is a flour

The Bad Little Boy—A California
Mark Twain, the California homon
ist,' tells the following story of the
'bad little boy ' , ' " ..
Onoa there was a bad little boy whose
lame was Jim though if you will no
tice, you will find that bad little boys are
nearly all called James in your Sunday
School books, It was very strange, but
still it was true, that this one was called
Jim. He didn't have any siok mother
either a sick mother who was pious and
had the consumption, and would be glad
to lie down in the grave and be at rest,
but for the strong love she bore her boy,
and the anxiety she felt that the world
would be harsh and cold toward him,
when she was gone. Most of the bad
boys in the Sunday School books are
oainod James, and have siok mothers to
teach them to say, 'Now I lay me down
to sleep,' etc., ana sing them to sleep with
sweet plaintive voices, and kiss them
good night, and kneel down by the bed
side and prey. But it was different with
this fellow. He was named Jim, and
there wasn't anything the matter with
his mother ho consumption or anything
of that kind. She was rather stout than
otherwise, and she was not pious; more
over, Bhe was not anxious on Jim's ao
oount; she said if be were to break his
neck, it wouldn't bo much loss ; she
always spanked him to sleep, and she
never kissed him good night; oo the
oontrary. she boxed his cars when she
was ready to leave him.
Once this little bad boy stole the key
to the pantry, and slipped in there and
helped himself to . some jam, and filled
the vessel with tar,' so that his mother
wouldn't know the difference ; but all at
onoe a terrible feeling didn't come over
him, and something didn t seem to whis
per to him, 'is n ngnt to disobey my
moiuer t uu i riuiui tu uu mm i
.1 q I :i i.. r - a M, . i
Where do little boys go to who gobble up
their good, kind mother's' jam?' And
than he didn't kneel down all alone and
promise never to be wibked , any more,
and use up witn. a lignt, nappy Heart,
and go and tell his mother all about it,
ana oeg ner lorgivinecs, tuu uiesseu uy
her with tears of pride and thankfulness
in her eyes. No; that is the way with
all other bad boys in " the books, but it
happened otherwise" with this Jim.
strangely enough. fla ate the jam, ana
said it was bully,' in his sinful,' vulgar
way ; and he put in the tar, and said that
was bully too, and laughed, and observed
that the 'old woman would get up and
snort,'' when she found it out, and when
she did find it out he denied knowing
anything about it, and she whipped him
severely, and he . did the crying himself.
Everything about this boy was curious
everything turned out differently with
him from the. way it does with the bad
Jameses in the books. Once he climed
up Farmer Acorn's apple tree to steal
apples, and the limb didn't break, and he
didn't fall down and break his arm, and
get torn by the farmer's great dog, and
then' languish on a siok bed for Weeks
and repent and become good,. .Oh, no ;
he stole as many apples as He wsnted, and
same down all right, and he was all ready
for the dog, too, and knooked him end- j
ways with a rocs: wnen ne came to tear
him;:'' " ; " :";: t ;
v It was very strange nothing like it
ever happened in those mild little books
with marbled backs, and with pictures
in them of men with swallow-tailed coats
and bell-crowned hats', and pantaloons
that are short in the lege, and women
with, the waists of their dresses under
their arms and no boops on.' Nothing
like it in any of the Sunday sohoof books.
Onoe he stole, the teaohers'a penknife,
and when he was afraid it would be found
out, and he would got whipped, he slip
ped it into George Wilson's eap poor
widow Wilson's son, the moral boy, the
good little boy of the village, who always
obeyed his mother, and never told an
untruth, and was fond of his lessons,
and infatuated with Sunday Schools.
And when the knife- dropped from the
cap, and poor Goorge hung his head and
blushed, as If in conscious guilt, and the
grieved teaoher charged the theft Upon
him, and was just in the very ' act of
bringing the switch down upon his trems
bling Bhoulders, a white haired Improba
ble justice of the peace did not suddenly
appear in their midst and strike an atti
tude and say, 'Spare this noble boy
there stands the cowering culprit I I
was passing the school door at recess,
and, unseen myself, I saw the theft com
mitted.': (And then Jim didn't get
whaled, and the venerable justice didn't
read the tearful school a homily, and take
George by, the band and say such a boy
deserved to.be exalted, and then tell. him
to. come and make his borne with hjm,
and sweep out the office, and make fires,
and run errands, and chop wood,, ana
study law, and help his wife to do house,
hold labors, and have all tbe balance ot
the time to play. .
' "No, it would have happened that way
in the books, but it dida't happen that
way to Jim. No meddling old clam of a
justice dropped in to make trouble, and
so the model boy, George, got thrashed,
and Jim was glad of it. Because,- you
know, Jim hated moral boys. - Jim said
he was 'down on them milksops. Such
was the ooarse ; language . 6f this bad,
neglected boy. - But the strangest things
that ever happened to Jim was the time
when he went boating on Sunday and
didn't get drowned, and that other time
that he got caught out in the storm when
he was fishing on Sunday, and didn't
get struok by lightning. Why. you
might look, and look, through the Sun.
day School books from now till next
Christmas, and you would never come
across anything like this. Oh, no you
would find all the bad boys who go boat
ing on Sunday Invariably get drowned,
and all the bad boys who get caught out
in storms, when they are fishing on Sun
day, invariably get struok by lightning.
Boats with bad boys in them always up
set on Sunday, and it always storms when
bad boys go fishing on the Sabbath, How
this Jim ever escaped is a mystery to me.
This J im bore a charmed life that must
have been tbe way of it. Nothing oould
hurt him. He even gave the elephant
in the menagerie a plug of tobaooo, and
the elephant didn't knock the top of his
head off withhis trunk. He browsed
around the cupboard alter essence of
peppermint, and , dida't make a mistake
and drink aqua fortis.
He stole hie father's gun and went
hunting on the Sabbath, and didn't shoot
three or four fioeors off. He struok his
little sister on the temple with his fist
when he was angry, and she didn't linger
in pain through long summer days and
die with sweet words of forgiviness upon
her lips that redoubled the anguish of
his breaking heart. , No she got over
it. He ran off and went to sea at last,
and didn't come back and find 'himself
sad and alone in tbe world, bis loved
ones asleep in the quiet ohurohyard, and
the vine embowerod home of his boyhood
tumbled down and gone to . decay. Ah,
no; he came home drunk as a piper, and
got into tbe station-house the first thing.
And he grew up, and married and raised
a large family, and brained them all with
fhe ax one nighty and got wealthy by aH
manner of cheating and rascality, and
now he is the infernalist wiokedest scoun
drel in his native viliage, and is univer
sally respected, and belongs to the Legis
lature. So. you see there never was a
bad James in the Sunday Sohool. books
that had suoh a streak of luck as this
sinful Jim with the oharmed life.' ' .'.',',',

Eying Women.
Tut eyeing of women bv womon is
of the most offensive manifestations of
superciliousness ; now to be met with ia
Bociety. Few . observant persons can
have failed to notice the manner in whioh
one Woman, who is not perfectly well
bred or perfectly kind hearted, will eye
ovor another woman wbo she thinks ia
not in good society, and above all. not at
the time being in so costly a dress as she
herself is in. It is done every where at
parties, at church, in the street.. It is
done by' women in all conditions in life.
The very servant girls learn it of their
mistress. It is done in an instant''
Who cannot recall hundreds of in
stances of that sweep of the eye which
takes. jn at a glance the .whole .woman
and what . she has on. from topknot to
shoe tie ? It cannot be fashion of be
havior; bat the daily increasing pretense
to superiority, which some people have,
because tbey can afford to spend more
money upon their backs than others can.
makea it at once more oommon and re
markable even than it was ten or fifteen
years ago. .: ....,'
Wen are never guilty of it. or witn
such extreme rarity, and then in such
feeble and small souled specimens of their
sex, that it may be set down as sin not
masculine, or at least epicene. But wo
men of sense, of some breeding and even
oi some Kindliness ot nature, will thus
endeavor to assert a superiority upon the
meanest of all pretences, and inflict a
wound in a manner the most cowardly,
because it cannot be resented, and ad
mits of no retort. If they only knew
bow unlovely, how positively offensive
they make themselves in so doing, tsot
only to their silent victim-, but to every
generous-hearted man who observes their
manoeuvre, they would give up a triumph
at onoe so mean and so cruel, which is
obtained at suoh saorifioe on their part.
No other evidence than this eyeing; ia
needed that, a woman, t whatever be her
berth or breeding, has a email and .vul
