A Young Man Sinol in (lie lace li-rs Tim; II' is Sai.l to Have K( 411 too Familiar. Friday evening on Midway another row occurred that stirred up the deni zens of that locality to a high pitch of excitement. The cause of this flagrant violation of the law, which of late seems to go on unrestrained was about as fol lows: A young man who in a neighborly way granted the request of a married lady friend had presented her with his photograph. The husband did not ap preciate this attention, and as the lire of jealousy burned in his heart, secured the assistance of a young man who is considered an expert in the fistic art, and proceeded to do up this inoffensive young man. The result of the tight is very Uecernable upon the features of the young man. It would bo a paying investment for our city to employ a patrol wagon for Laporte street. r.xriitpt I'roin Taxation. An old law has been brought to the front in New York state, wherein it exempts from taxation any property purchased by pension money. It has created quitea commotion. flow to Select mif! Cook Thi Sr.non- In buying corn seot thoc ear. thnt are thickest and Lo.n filial. Test th corn by piercing a kernel with tlio thumb nail. If the milk Hows freely it is in good condition. Be sure tho husks are green and the corn vxiiite. There are many ways of cooking corn, but the most popular r.nd the best way is to boil it. says Philadelphia Time.-. To do this properly, remove the ont siile husks, turn down the insid - 01:0s, leaving them nn tlip ear, remove every pr.rtiele of silk and cut away any im Prfeetions from the ear; turn ih" in side husks hack, so that they co:n p'.etely envelop tho ear; tie thm to gether with a strip of the husk and lay them in a largf, clean agate kfttle; cover deeply with layers of the outside husks, pour in enough cold water to just cmiio to the edge of the corn, hut not to cover the layer of husks. Xow, coer the kettle with the 1U, stand it on the stove with a quick fire, and after it conies to a boil let it boil just four minutes, then set it off the stove where it will keep hot. Cover a large platter with fresh green husk-, out-standing like a fringe. Lay a lirgo napkin in the center and, removing the "orn from the. kettle, idle it on the nap kin, then foil the four corners of the napkin and stvc. Roast Corn. liemove the husks and silks from each ear nnd lay them in front of a bright coal fire or tinder the tlamo of n ?t:is broiler; turn frequently till each ear is a rieh Irown all over; roll in a napkin and serve at 0:100 with plenty ol fresh butter. Corn Fritters. Urate tho corn from Fix ears into a deep howl: add to this the yelks of three eggs; stir them well with the grated corn; season with half a teaspoonfui of salt and a (b.sh of red. pepper, or blaek pepper if preferred; to this add a pint of cream or rich milk and enough 1'our to make a stif batter; heat the whites of the three eggs to a froth and stir them very quickly into a batter; have a kettle of smoking hci fat veady. and with a large spoon or Idle drop the fritters into the fat. one by one, and. 1 u them fry until a l'rht brown. Vh.v I'lirincrs Are Ntit rroH'Pnu. "Do you ktiov why our farmers nro not. more prosperous?" as'.rcd Jim Ale Cue, the Marin county rancher, poli tician, horse doctor and philosopher. "Well, I'll tell you." ho continued, without waiting an answer. "It is he cause the farmer, rascher and dairy man thinks he mus .'eil everything to the commission m reliant or the re tailer. He drives into town with a wagon load of butter and egirs or water melons, sells them in ten minutes for whatever the storekeeper will pay, plays pedro the rest of the day and goes home with a. couple of plugs of tobacco, a bottl" of whisky and somo tad cigars. Then at the end of the year Ae wonders why he has made nothing. "Once a San Rafael butcher went to a neighbor of mine to buy a steer. " Vh;:t do you want for him?' asked the butcher. " 'Oh, about S'JO.' " Teef is worth only 4 cents 0:1 foot row, and he won't weigh over 100 pounds. I'll give you $10 for him. " 'All right; take him. "'I can't take him right now. lie sides he's too poor to kill. "'All right; leave him here till you get ready to take him away.' "Tho butcher left him till fall an A then he weighed about TOO pounds. When he took him away, the farmer said: " 'When you kill that beef I'd like to have a quarter.' "'All right; I'll send it down.' "A few days later the fanner slopped In at the butcher's siiop to settle up. " 'Oh, yes; glad to see you. Cot your bill all mado,' said tho butcher, aurt ho handed out this statement: 'Mr. Farmer, creditor, by one 4)'.)-pound steer, at 4 cents, $10; debtor, to one hind quarter of beef, 1S.1 pounds, at ID cents, $18.30; balance. $2.50.' "The farmer had given his hoof and $2.r.) for a hind quarter rather than t in a day slaughtering, and then he wonders why there is no money in farming. If he could just raise a crop of brains he would bo all right." Hon- M.-ir.y I'nl T!uy Katr "Can you t;'d me." said Will to Tiob, ""now many rpples Adam and Eve ate in the Garden of Eden?" "That's a chestnut!" Hob answered. "Eve ate ono, and Auam ate, too; that makes three." "You don't add correctiy, Bob. Tho total is 103." "How do you make that out?" "Why, as you said, Eve ate one (SI) and Adam ate, too (S2). Add St and 82 together and you get ICH, don't you?" Bob thought a moment and ex claimed: "I guess they ate more, after all. Eve ato for one (Sil), pnd Adam ate, too (S2); total, 923." "Oh, I can do better than that," said Will. "Eve, for one, ate one (1,181), and Adam, too, ate one (2S1). That makes a total of 4,3(12. Can you beat that?" "Yes, indeed! How is this? Eve ato one, for one (S J 11), and Adam ate ,ono, too (812). That is a total of 8,903. Now it's your turn." "I'll quit," said Will. "They must have eaten the whole crop." Itevival of tho Minuet in London, It looks as if the minuet is destined, for a time, at all events, to resume its graceful sway in the ballrooms of Eu rope. One or two attempted revivals have been fairly successful during the London season.

And b. ttcr may she speed! And W. 1 may tiie boatie row That win-; the bairnies bread!"

I'nforumat. ly, a iomewdiat curious commentary on its prevailin-,' s. ntira. nt is afforded by cer tain actions of the author himself. John Jv.ven was a s. lf-made man and evi dently had a v.-ry good opinion of his ir.ak.-r. IP was a native of Montrose, where h" was born on Oct. 21, 1711. It is said that his father was r.. link"--, and John hims'-lf certainly began life as a packman, for I'.annerman, in his "Aber-'Jei-n . i tlii' s," states that many citi zens remembered him "going about th-i country s Hing buckles, sleeve buttons, cnkniv. s, etc." By the year 17''"!, the worthy packman l ad got together a little money. vc?nt to A l-rd'-eii and Fiart.-.l business a.s it hardware merchant, bettered himself considerably by marriage, and died in ISn, poss. ss.-il of something like 1j,0U) pounds. The obituary writer in the Scots Magazine commends, him for "his i x. rtions ia favor of charitable institu tions." and tells us that "every individ 'ual case of distress that came under hH notice received z- ahuts and tmremit ting att- nti .n." And yet tids was th4 man who willed bis fortune past an r.idy child, a daughter, because she had not married exactly as hy desired! The; magistrates and clergy were to get everything for the founding of a hos pital and the education and mainten ane" of pe.r boys. The b"-iuest was, oif course, challenged by the daughter, and after protracted litigation, in the course of which I'wen appeared in anything but an envialde light, it was finally set aside by the house of lords on Ihe clear legal ground that the deed was void in con?eouonce of its uncertainty and want of precis; m. both as to the sum to b accumulated by the trustees before they were to begin building the hospital, and s to the number of boys to be educated ;n it when it had b.-cn built. Thus va John Bwen's churlish spitcf ulnes de feated. SHE TOOK THE CHANCE. Meitn Advantage Altempte! to 15e Tiikt'ii 1y Her You 11 g Shi 11. "You look pale," said the sharp-imsed girl.

Ihi 111 li ai:iu IIa i Narrow I'snipi from Kein - Hit en by an Angry Keptile. San Francisco Examiner: S. 1 Pax ton, of I'kiah, had an engagement with a hug--- rattlesnake recently, from the eh'ei ts of which ho is not as yet out of dang"1:'. Paxton was on his way to a ranch which he owns about live miles from this en'. Always on the watch for something to add to his already large collection of nests, birds and ani mals, bo discovered what he supposed to be a huge bird's nest. Dismount ing, he crawled on his hands and knees through the chapnaral, and va : about to reach for tho supposed ii".-t whin the thing, giving no warn ing but a hiss, struck at Mr. Taxton, but fell short. Paxton turned and made his way out of the ("liapparal as fast as possible, with the snake after him. On emerging from the chapparal Paxton started on a run for his horse, secured his ri!!o and shot the snake. It was a long timo before the gentleman could calm himself so that he could take measurements.

TYPE-SZTTING MACHINES. How They Arc Worked to and Utilized In (lie London Tim' )!li-. In typesetting machinery the appli cation of mechanics to the art of print ing is reaching a culmination. It is Ft.itod that (hiring the last twenty years upward of ?0.ono,ooo has been ex pended in bringing the art of setting type by machinery up to its present state. Now, for nil plain work, type setting machines ara available. In the Eon d on Times ofih o a curious arrange ment has been adopted for the composi tion of the stenographic notes of the parliamentary reports in the house of commons, in which typesetting ma chines play an important part. The stenographic notes tire rend to the op erators of the machines, instiad of be ing transcribed, as was formerly the case. Men at telephones at the house of commons read these notes to men stationed at receivers in the Times com posing room, who in turn read them to the typesetters. In this way these notes can be txt up in type almost as rapidly as they could be transcribed by an expert typewriter, and it is said that the numlcr of errors that creep in are not fo numerous as to make the werk of correcting proof much greater than by the old system, w hile a considerable saving in time and expense is effected, tlon and toward tho pol.-. Tiie wind never blows with violence. The day light is pr. tty nearly continuous. The distance from some points of Spitzber gen to the pole was about S degrees. In fact, the distance to be run over by the balloon was .about the same as if France had to be traversed. If two or three days were taken by the aerial voyage diat time would j,uite suffice. The children of Mexican Indian princes were carefully educated by tho Spaniards, and several viceroys of Mex ico were descended from the Monte zumas and bore their name. TThe two poLofliees in the United States most widely separated from eaeti other are those at Key West, FJa., and Ounalaska. Alaska. They are 6.271 mile apart, and yet a two-cent stamp wlli carry a letter from the one to the othei as readily as from New York ta Brooklyn.
