On the other hand it is almost impossible to scare a really intelligent horse. He may be disconcerted or alarmed, but he won't lose his head. It is, however, astonishing how little interest in this all important question ol intellect the usual horse dealer takes. The reason probably is that he feels perfectly competent to manage any horse, no matter what the animal's character dred men had gathered. "Throw water on 'em!" "Call the police!" "Who's uot a cane?" "Kick that yallerone!" All these and a dozen other exclamations flew from mouth to mouth. Seven or eight men rush ed in to cane the dogs, and three or four others to kick them, and then fresh voices cried; "Letup oneml" "It's a shame !" "Knock that red faced man down !" "Let go there or may be, and tie. regards him simply I'll smash your nose !" There were as a beast of burden, and not in the four wrangles, two fights, six "dare least as a companion and friend.

But any body who had studied horses' eyes would have seen at a glance that the high-priced "saddler" was a fool, and so he turned out to be, for he was easily frightened, and finally ran away and had to be sold in disgrace. Jealously Guarded Gems. We do not make the assertion rashly, but after thirty years' ex perience, when we say there is only one known Antidote for Malaria. Other remedies will hold its power in check for a time, but Shallenber ger's Pills destroy it in the system, and will not injure an infant. The Bank of England is the most When the French crown jewels extensive banking institute in the were sold by auction last season it is well known that the finest and most historical of the gems, including the famous "Ilegent" diamond, were reserved, and these may now be seen in the Louvre in the gallery called after the well known statue of Apollo, which is such a prominent object in it. Before these priceless gems were exposed, however, a committee of skilled officials and experts was ap pointed in order to decide on some plan for rendering their loss by theft virtually, impossible, and this is what the committee decided upon : The jewels are exhibited in a .showcase, glass plates of which are exceptionally thick, and Ihe iron framework of which is ab normally strong, and an attendant has been appointed to specially keep watch over the precious exhibit all day long.

He leaves four brothers. To the first he bequeaths his left hand and arm ; to the second, his right hand and r.rm ; to the third, his right leg and foot, and to the fourth his left leg and foot. To his nephew his nose ; to one niece his left ear, and to another niece his right ear; to one cousin his teeth and to another cousin his gums.

Slips ot the Tongue. True Living. Metathesis the transposition of letters in a word is a source of many olprirnl mishans. A writer in a late number of the Spectator adduced some curious examples of this perni cious habit. He cites the case of a clergyman who, wishing to say that "we all knew what it was to have a half-formed wish in our hearts," as tonished his hearers by announcing that "we all knew what it was to have a half-warmed fish in our hearts," and of another, who, having "started out" to say that "we would not bow the knee to an idol," arrived at the conclusion "that we should not bow the eye to a needle."

"It did?" "Yes; Noah came out of the ansaw land, you know." L. Gove. The noblest life to live is with na ture ; the highest aspirations of the soul are more nearly satisfied in com muning with nature than in the rush and whirl of the city. The city cul tivates the sordid side of man's na ture. It is a constant strife for exist ence or in grasping the shadowy form of fortune. It is a rare nature that can pass unscathed through the mul titudinous temptations that environ city life. Young man or young wo man, think twice, ponder well, ere you forsake country life for the ex citements of the city. Rural enjoy ments are unstained with evil. The workings of nature as spread out be fore the vision, draw the soul nearer to the great Architect, the One who fashioned the earth for a dwelling place for man. FISHING FOR WOLVES. The Adventure ot Threw Irishmen la Wild Cenadlnn Woods. It wns their fourth day in camp ami they had not boon disturbed by any thing unusnl, but tho night following the shooting of tho door waa made dreadfully api rohonsivo by tho howl ing ot what soeniod to them at loast half a hundrod half-famishod wolves. Thoy seemed to bo concentrating toward a given point, and that was tho spot where thoy had bled tho buck. Their quick instincts did not deceive them. Tho voracious whelps camo down from the woods in swarms, and their terrific 6narling9 and yelpings sont terror to the hearts of thoao three poor landlubber Irish men. Tho weather being only moder ately cold the- had neglected to get together only a small amount of wood for Iheir camp fire?. There is nothing wolves are so rfraid of as a blazing fire, and no matter how hungry they may bo a pack will not attack a camp which is well lighted up on two or throe sidos of it. Hence ex perienced woodsmen always havo in camp a good supply of pitch wood to bo used as necessity may require. Our vounff Irishmen had ncclected tills precaution, while fortunately they had a larso supply of ammunition, and what to them wasmoro fortunate still, they had with them somo hooks used by trappers of foxos, coons and other small gamo, as clogs to pro vent them from making away with tho traps, They had also a long and vory tougli rope. Dennis McGinty had suggested taking along these hooks as possibly useful in fishing. They were a cluster of three hooks welded together, mnk ing a tripod, with an Iron ring into which could bo attached a chain or ropo, as tho case seemed to require, So when tho wolves cnlerod the camp Putrick Kyan said to . Dennis: 'Dinnis. me bov. if vou 'avo no objection I'll jist troy and kitch oneo' them varmints wr one o your new tangled fishhooks. I'll jist troy trol lin' on tho land, uv you plazo." S. taking out his pocket-knife he cut out a liberal hunk of a cutlet from tho haunch of tho buck, and, after tying it securely to tho triple hook, aimed it at what appeared to be tho center of tho pack, having first securely fastened the lino to a sapling which stood at the camp door. In far less time than it requires mo to tell the story the swaying of the bush told what was going on at tho other end of the line. "Begorro," says Pat, "wo'vo got a bite. Now, ail hands togithcr and we'll haul in tho catch. All togithcr; he-o ho! hc-o ho! he-o! But don't ho backwater, tho'? Ile-o ho! Wo gain on him! All togithcr; but he's comin'. Howld on, bo jabbers! What shall we do wi' him when wo git him in? Then tho wit of Lafferty came in pat, as it always did on a pinch. Says he: ' "Whon we git Mm up so's tho light will show nw where to lodge a ball in tho haste s profile, 111 do for Mm. Just pull in, bys, till you git Mm furninstthe light, and I'll show Mm how not to attom))i to capture a pad d)'-camp in time of profound peace, when ther's bin no declaration of war. He'o. ho! he'o! Howly Mosos, there ho comes," and such a terror of noisos as came from the throat of that capturod wolf sent consternation to tho whole camp. But Lafferty was a good shot, and soon the trusty riflo had done its work, and tho terrible beast lay dead at their feet. THey wero so woll-pleased with up land fishing that they kept at it all night, and by daylight next morning they had a pile of nineteen wolves stacked in front of their camp. Cleveland Leader. REFUGE FOR CATS. How Philadelphia llun Provided for Her Decrepit Fellurl. One of the most unique of Philadel phia's institutions is tho Rcfugo for Lost and Suffering AnimVs, more commonly called the "Cat Homo," at No. 1212 Lombard street. . The refuge" doos an extensive business in providing easy mortuary honors for old, decrepit and vagrant felines, who are daily dispatched by the fumes of charcoal. It Is a feature of tho wom an's branch of tho Society for the Pre vention of Cruelty to Animals, and is in charge of Superintendent John C. West. Superintendent West's report for 1887 shows that 11.371 cats met a painless doath, together wilh 2,159 dogs, 4 rats, 3 rabbits. 3 canary birds and 2 chickens. All the latter were killed at tho request of tho owners. Boarders are also taken in the shapo of pet cats, whoso owners leave the city, or who desiro that they should have good care in their declining days. The charge per week is fifty cents. and tho menu consists of milk, fish and bread twice oach day. Thoy are kept in a latticed inclosuro, and. bar ring the occasional differences that arise between them, seem to enjoy tholr quarters. When an animal is received as a boarder its name, if it has one, is registered, as is that of its owner, and all the personal marks and peculiari ties it may possess. No responsibili ty, however, is assumed in case of sickness or doath of tho animal in , charge. Any ono having a cat they wish mercifully put to doath has but to send word to the refuge and Frank Ryan, who rejoices in tho title of "cat messenger," will call and remove tho cat. carrying it awav in a large bas ket, divided within by partitions each large enough for ono animal. This is done to prevent family jars and in ternal conflicts, which would render Mr. Ryan's position irksome. No chargo is made, hut an established custom is tho payment of car faro. "We don't kill all the cats." explained Superintendent West. "Wo often come ncross very good animals In some of tho batches of kittens wo re ceive. These wo nlwavs pick out and experience no dilll-nlty in finding them good homes. We are frequently consulted as to remedies for sick ani mals and aro of.cn asked to recoivo them at tho refuge, but that responsi bility we have to decline. This want has been supplied bv tho generous gift of $70,000 by the lato Mrs. R. W. Ryerss, who bequeathed that amount to establish an infirmary for animals, which is entirely distinct from the refuge." I'hilade'phia Luuirer. THE AMERICAN COWBOY. No Universal Remedy hat yet been discovered ; but, as at least four-fifths of human diseases have their source in Impure Blood, a medicine which restores that fluid from a de prayed to a healthy condition comes as near being a universal cure as any that enii bo produced. Ajer'a Sarsaparilla ullucts the blood in each stage of Its formation, and is, therefore, adopted to a greater variety of complaints, than any oilier known medicine. Boils and Carbuncles, which defy ordinary treatment, yield to Ayer'ti SarMaparilla after a comparative ly brief trial. "' '" ' - Mr. C. K. Murray, of Charlottesville, Va.; writes that for years he was af flicted with .bolls which canscd him much suffering. These were succeeded by carbuncles, of which he had several at ono time. He then began the use ot Ayer's Snrsapavllla, and after taking three bottles, the carbuncles disap peared, and for six years ho has not had even a pimple. That insidious disease, Scrofula, is the fruitful cause of innumerable com plaints, Consumption being only one of many equally fatal. Eruptions, ulcers, sore eyes, glandular swellings, weak and wasted muscles, a capricious appe tite, and the like, are pretty sure indi cations of a scrofulous taint in the system. Many otherwise beautiful faces nre disfigured by pimples, eruptions, and unsightly blotches, which arise from Impure blood, showing the need of Ayer's Sarsaparilla to remedy the eviL All sufferers from blood disorders should give Ayer's SarHaparilla a fair trial, avoiding all powders, ointments, mitl washes, and especially cheap and worthless compounds, which not only fail to effect a cure, but more frequently aggravate and confirm the diseases they are fraudulently advertised to remedy.

She says a girl may caress a conic section, but let her see the man to whom her heart goes out, and she will drop the conic section and caress the man. Ed ucation may better the mind, but it has nothing to do with the heart. If it had you would not find educated women stoping sometimes to marry the men they do, nor would you find educated men marrying mere pretti ness, when there was still some edu cated womanhood left. HE APPRECIATED HER. A Little Story W hlch Caused a General Clearing of Throats. "We were married thirty-seven years," said Mr. Gardner Andrews, "and in all that time my wifo never gavo mo a cross word. But I shall never forget tho first time I eluded her. It was on a Sunday morning when wo had been married about two years. I found a button off my shirt, and throw it ncross tho room. 'Sow a button on,' I said, in a brutal voice. She was a good Christian woman, and was preparing for church; but she got tho button and sowed it on." "And what did she say?" asked a little, bristling woman, with suapping eyes. "She said: 'Forgive me, husband; 1 had a great deal to do yesterday and forgot it, but it. shall never happen again.' "Oh," said tho man, fixing his eyes on tho picture of his dead wife, "licr gcntlo words almost broke my heart I could havo gone down on my knees to ask her forgiveness, fcno made a different man of me, and the world has boen a different place since she died." Thero was a silence as ho finished speaking, Interrupted by a goneral clearing of throats and a confused snuffling, as wo all had bad colds, and the little woman s snapping eyes looked suspiciously dim.
