How the Chat Ran About the “Hear Lit tle I’reclou* " Darling* ltem* About the ling Show—“ What Can't Be Cured,” Etc. INew York Cor Chfowffo New*.] You have heard much of the great “dog craxc" affected here by manv ladies Well. I am glad to have witnessed a scene the other morning illustrative of it I wa* calling on a triend in the pa. tors of the fifth A venue hotel Mrs. b.. who has a lovely home up on the Hudson, but is (pending a few da.s here, was receiving a caller at the same time. She is very pretty and attractive in feature, and wore the most exquisite reception dress Every thing about ber bespoke good taste uud refinement. Her visitor was a stylish little lady of the most sparkling brur~tte tvpe. in the arm-* of each wa* clasjn-d a little dog, with tinkling jewels and silk embroidered blankets Mrs. It’s d>ggiv actually wore a *lO gold piece, sel in a rim of*tiny diamonds, that dangled from his collar. What first so impressed me with these ladies was that I never remembered to have seen two prettier, brighter, and mdre attractive faces so close t gellier. Each was of different and yet fairly beaming with intelligence an I ’ culture, and promised the listener nothing but the the imst intellectual conversation, spiced with br.lliant reiwrtee or pretty, womanly sentiment, iso 1 jiermitted my friend to do all the talking, while I lent eye and car to the e two attractive strangers, but if they conversed on any topic, or alluded to anything that was not in some way (no matter how remote) connected with “dog. " then my ears are ali wrong, and not to be credited at all. I will repeat it exactly, without exaggeration, word for word, from a faithful memory.

You see, a man comes in and get into the chair, and the bat ber commences shaving him without saying a word.

INDIA THE EXCITING CAUSE Ot Almost Kvorytklag Waiitk* Whlek Hm Talma Placs Uialj. r*Oath” la « tectnamtl Eaqiilrrr.) The prince of Wales has been to India on a tour, and India b at this moment the exciting cause of almost every tiling which has taken place everywhere. The revolt on the isthmus of 1 anama, which burnt the town of Aspinwall the other day, was occasioned by nothing but dbplacemcnts and rivalries over the 1 anama canal, which has been attempted by the French in imitation of the British canal to India in 1 gypt. The civil war in Central America, where Barrios was killed, was caused by the disturbance of an American treaty to make a canal through to the Pacific ocean and get another route to India. The fight in the Saskatchewan country of Canada arises from nothing but the build ing of a railroad through that wilderness to the Pacific with the object of doing trade with Asia and India, for ail Asia was the India of C olumbus, China and Japau included. The fights in various parts of Africa is for nothing but a rail road or other means of communication across Africa to India. The battle be tween the Kussians and the Afghans is nothing but British and liussian intrigue in Asia to get the advantage of each other. Unquestionably the time is not far off when India will be a still greater question than it is at present, aud will absorb the attention of the whole world, for the rea son that India is used by Eu rope as a make weight against the United States. If we monopolize cotton they begin to raise cotton in India; if we made too much profit on wheat and corn they begin to raise wheat and corn in India, if our railroads absorb British money they begiu to lay railrords in In dia. tin the other hand the Russians are the only people who are opening communica tions directly from the north of Europe toward India The Russians built by American enterprise much of their rail road system, which now extends to the Caspian soa. and they have incipient roads beyond it orrying them far toward India overland by a route which must ul timately Ire pr;ferable to the Suez route, because grain a.ul many other things by the water route have to pass through the tropics and must spoil.

I pou the afternoon of the second day after the surrender people in that vicinity were surprised to see come riding up the street from the south a company of Confederate horsemen. They were un armed.

Our lent wa* built for permanent quarters. In one end we made a door eighteen inches wide by three feet high. On the opposite side was a fireplace built outside of small sticks, like stone work, and covered in side with clay mortar The bovs, as usual were at their cards. I took a frii nd into my counsels, and we procured a shell w hich had blown the load out without bursting. We fastened into this shell a long fuse 1 then told my friend to g > away several rods toau empty dry goods box. aud strike upon it so as to mal e it sound like the booming of distaut cannon, “llark!” said one, “a you hear that? Thats from Lee's battery on the left We may have other business than card playing by daylight " •lust then “boom " went the old dry goods box, and instantly 1 dropped the shell, with the burning fuse, down the chimney. The shell fell upou the fire and rolled under the bunk on which the boys were sitting. “Tch— tch—tch—" went tbc burning fuse. The boys thought it a message direct from Lee’s batter}'. Two tried to jump through the door at the -auie time, and blocked up the narrow door so that neither was able to gei out. A full evacuation of the tent was finally effected and a retreat made — not. however, iu good order No one was killed; but the boys waited behind distant trees for more than thirty mortal minutes momentarily exjiecting to see the tent blown to atoms* After a while these heroes came together, and in the council of war they held on the field of fright it was decided that they had Iteen the vic tims of fraud But there was no more card-playing in my tent Tho I’ostofflt'PA of the World. ! Brooklyn Eagle ] A small volume of statistics, showing the work doue by the postothces of the w orld, has just been published in Flor ence. From this it appears that in 1883, the latest year for which complete returns are available, there were in Lurope 65,500 receiving officers, 41,500 telegraph offices and 225,00 J letter boxes. The total num ber of persons employed by the various jK»stoftiies was 356,000. and in the twelve months there were transmitted 683,000,000 letters. 546.000.000 post cards. 1,046.000 books and parcels, 1.672,000,000 news papers and 117,000.000 telegrams, the gr<«' weight of the matter sent through the post being estimated at about 800,000 tons. The lowest charge for the conveyance of any letter or post card was one fifth of a cent, the highest $25. The total receipts of the various offices amounted to *IOO, 750,000 and their expenditures to $159,- 700.0' 0. These figures are surprising when one renumbers that less than half a century ago the nuinlier of |>ackages of all kinds that pa>s through the postoffiees of the world was well under 100,000,000. Biting at the >ak.-d Hook. (Brooklyn Eagle.] Some little time ago there appeared an advertisement in a weekly journal in which the writer affected to make an oiler to the reader, which he assumed no one would answer, simply on account of incredulity. His profesition was made as a test tosh w if there was any faith left iu munkiuil He didn't expect any reply, but lie simply made the experiment The oiler was to the effect that if any of the readers would send him five 3 cent stamps ho would return them a present suitable to their wishes. Nine people out of ten would have saiu that no man or woman could be gull enough to lie takeu in by such a bait as this; nevertheless sev eral parties sent the stamps. entered into particulars of the station of life iu which they moved, and indicated the kind of presents that would lie acceptable. One young lady stated that she was about to go to u baV, and no doubt believed that she would either get a silk dress or a |»air of diumotui bracelets by return post. In the II iWfU of tho Kart It.

'National Car-Builder ] A writer in a recent number of The Age of Steel, published in 8t Louis, de scribes from personal observation the cruel treatment to which cattle are sub jected while being driven from Texas to Kansas City, and from thence transported by rail to the eastern seaboard cities The description, although written apparently in the refrigerator car t»eef traffic luterest, is no doubt substantially true, if, indeed, it does not fall short of the truth in de picting the abuses practiced in live stock transportation. Tbe details need not be recapitulates It is enough to say that they are revolting to every humane in stinct. and a reproach to civilization. The trouble is not because suitable cars cannot be built, or that cattle cannot be fe»l, watered, and rested while on their journey; but it results from the neces sity of chea|>cuing the cost of transporta tion ’ carrying as many cattle as possi ble .a ear. and bv continuous running, so as to make tbe trip in the quickest pos sible time. This will do very well for short distances that can be made in from twelve to eighteen hours, but when cattle are driven long distances *o points of shipment, and are then packed into cars to remain there from fifty to lUO hours, with imperfect feeding and no outside rest, the case is very pifferent. If cars could be made so as to give the animals plenty of room to lie down, and at the same time be supplied with feed and water, without increasing the cost of car rying them, it wouid have been done long •fia. “Palace” cattle cars were invented and patented a dozen years ago, with ample provision for making the cattle comfort able and saving them from the protracted misery which they have now to endure. One of these cart was thirty-six feet long and nine and one-half wide, which is tea feet louger and one foot wider than stock cars usually are. It would carry sixteen cattle of ordinary size and give them plenty of room, but no such cars are run ning on the roads now, because com petition will not admit of it. No road is going to carry cattle in palace cars, packed in as loosely as hyenas and tigers in a traveling menagerie, while a rival road, by prodding and tail twisting, car ries twice as many in the same number of cars of the common kind. The best car, from a shipper s and transporter's point of view, is one that will carry the great est weight of Texas steers to the square foot without killing the steers before reaching their destination.
