London Punch Thjy stng their songs and thoir and tho gossip to guest from host Is of wreckage wild in tho winter tbno round tho dangerous Cornish coasts There aro plenty of yarns of tho sailor, and of fisherman out at&ca, There aro tales of tho lighthouse keepers, and of woman who bend tho kneo Whon tholr mates are away in tho storm timo, and tho cottage is lift to tho roar Of tho hurricane lashing tho surf, to foam, and bcreaming about tho shores But host of all tales that over I heard to make mo think bettor of men Who fliug in their lives for duty it happened you ask mo when? On a wonderful summer's evening, just as holiday timo began. It had for its 6cono old Cornwall its hero a Constguardmanl A party of "trippers" had ventured to visit tho rocks und caves. Whoro tho soa birds find their housos, and ignorant folks tholr graves; You may search for wild adventure on tho sencoast south and north, But for beauty, travol by Truro to tho villago of Pen anporth. , It was thero on this summer evening, pn tho bench as tho daylight died, That a wandering, thoughtless fellow was caugnc at tno turn or tno tiuo; Up enmo tho sea and trapped him, cutting tho ground from his feet; Ho rushed, but ha couldn't go onward thou back, thero was no rotreat! Up cnino tho sea still closer was it death? Not a second to count Then sotting his teeth at tho danger, to tho cliffs bo began to mount Tearing tho turf and tho grasses, and scaring tho sen birds' nest, Clingiug with feet and fingers, and bruising his arms and breast. At last with a despernto strugglo ho lifted his lifo to a stone. "Where ho held with tt for a second, suspended in air, ftJonol Once moro death baned his passage; and his terrified face turned gray, For tho ledge of the rock ho clung to was crumbling slowly away I "Where is the m n for a rescuof' co tho cry of agony run. "I am that man, God willing I" said Regan, tho Coastguardmau! Then followed a terrible silence, a horror that might bo felt, For tho villago was emptied of womon, who muttered their prayers and knolt; They could too tho eyes of tho shivering man, with the agonized face turned gray, As stone after stone from his kept slowly crumbling away! "Bring inn u rope!" said Regan, "and bind it about my waist; Look at that wretched follow I In a second he'll falll Mnkohr.stol KTeop the conl tight in your hands, mates thero, lighter so, uud stifT; Now, wait till I givo tlio bignall Then haul mo over the chff.

Billy Cripps Good Luck. Ed. Mott in Now York Sun. "Looks to mo 'zif wo mowt bo gointor hov a lootlo sjxjIIo' weather," said tho Old Settler, as ho entered Uio Crissman house and stood his dripping umbrella in a cornor, where it at onco boglns to shod littlo rills of water, which soon collected in a largo and not romarkably pellucid pool on the floor. Frank, tho land lord, nntored. Ho eyod tho umbrella savagely for a moment, and then grabbed it uud rani' mod it lu tho woodbox. Many hot words would doubtless have passed between the landlord nnd tho Old aud thero might have been n scene, but just then Undo Ira cnlled Frank and told him thoro was a man outside with a balky hoiso that ho wanted to sell at a bargain, and ho hurried out to look it over. "Bimoby," said tho Old Settlor to tho ixys, "bimeby, whon a feller comes yor on a rainy day ho'll hof to hang his unib'rel outsido on tho sign post or olso carry a tub long with hlsself to lot it drip in. Evor eenco Frank took to(koopin' city boarders, b'gosh, he's ben a sp'llln', 'Foro long we'll hof to sot on a wagon tonguo out hi tho barn. This barroom's a gittin' too durn high-toned fur us." Then, rotuming to tho weather topic, the Old Settler continued: "Streaks o' wot weather mos' alius fetches bad luck, but I novor seo a wet season sech ez this un s bon but I think o' tho bully luck that Billy Cripps tuniblod into in tho full o' 'CO. That Is, ho was Billy Cripps thou, but ho's old Squiro Cripps now, o' Peenpack. Ef it hadn't fur tho all-fired bigapplo crop in '30, an fur tho spoil o' wot weather they bed tho same timo, 'tain't likely he'd u ben any bettor fixed than tho reat of us. "Unclo John Blllduck had a farm down in Jorsoy. 'Twasn't nono o' yor punkin farms, nuither. Dunied if I don't b'liovo tho apples they raised on that farm of a season would a bought tho hull o' Laclcawack. Billy Cripps was a likely young foller, nn' lived a inilo or bo from Unclo Jouas's. lib wanted to marry Jonas's darter Jemimo, but tho olo man didn't iiko tho notion, though he hadn't nothlu' ngin Billy 'copt that ho wasn't rolllu' very much in wealthy. Billy usety work consld'ablo for Jonas, and Jemimo likol hi.u. Evry chauco ho'd git ho'd try to worry her dad inter to tho match, but Jonas alluz kop' a sayin', b'gosh, that ho couldn't boo it. "Wall, iu '80 tho apple ctop was immense, Folks didn't know what to do with it Thoy ground 'em lutor cider, nnl mudo 'om inter whiskey, an' give 'em nwny, uu fed 'em to tho cattle, but still thoy was mora apples than they was loaves cu tho trees. Unclo Jonas ho'd moro'n his sheer, iiko tho rest on 'cm. Ono day n smart neighbor o' his'n got an Idoo. Ho didn't havo no farm nor no apples, but ho had this idea. He como to Jonas an' urgled that mos' likely tho chances was, b'gosh, that nox' year tho applo crop'd bo a de(td foilur', an' that natVally they'd bo a b!fi. cjill f orjslrted gpplc, 71 ITow, Unclo Jonas,' says he, 'we'll jist kinder go pardnors like, an1 peel nn' dry n snortin' olo pilo o' apples this fall, lay 'cm over, an' ketch tho markot heavy when it gets a haukerin' fur sech goods nex' fall.' "Thoideo struck Unclo Jonas, an' ho sot tho hull family to poolin' apples, an' 'twa'n't long 'foro tho had four or fivo hundred bushol o' dried apples on hand. Unclo Jonas's house wa'n't a very largo un, an' it stood 'bout fifty foot from tho lino o' a lot blongin' to Hoppy Dusonborry. Not mor'n a hundred foot from ono sido o' the houso, wliar they was only ono winder, and that was up stairs, thoy was quite a steep knoll, nn' at tho foot o' this Jonas hod built a high wall. Tho groun' twixt that an' tho houso was stony, an' wa'n't used fur anything, so Jonas concluded to spread his dried apples on boards twixt tho houso and the wall. Ho built a roof over 'em, an' thar he had 'cm stowed snug euough. "Wall, that fall Billy Cripps was pesterin' tho old man moro'n over to lot up an' give him Jemimo. Ono day Jonas got mad. "Sco, yor, Billy,' says ho 'I'm a gittfn, dnrn tired o' this. Thoy ain't no uso. You'm jist oz likely to got Jemimo ez I am to bo u livin' over thar in Hoppy Dusonberry'" pastur 1 Now, tho fus' fino mornin' you come long this way an' find mo a livin' over thar. just walk in toll rao, an' then you kin walk oil with Jemimo. "Ez inn doz ho woro, Jonas had to laugh o' tho joko o' tho thing. Billy ho tol died oir, an' mado up his mind that him anil Jemimo couldn't nover hitch. "Tho 6eason had beon wot all through thr summer, an' was keopin' it up. Ono night, jist nrtor Jonas had givo Billy Cripps his las wnlkln' papers, thoro como up an olo tearei of a rain ono o' them warm fellors that soaks right in. Thoy was a rippiu' wind come 'long with it I rcckomoinber 'twere on Saturday night, fur Unclo Jonas's family alluz took a rest Sunday morniu's, not up foro half -pas' six. or sovon. That Sunday mornin', though, thoy rap at tho door 'foro six o'clock. Jonas got up an, dressed hissolf , an' went down. Thar war Billy Cripps. " 'Mornin', Unclo Jonas,' says ho. "'Mornin',' says Unclo Jonas. 'What in tho name o' tho grizzly king bo you doin' yei this timo o' day.' " 'Wall," says Billy, 'I wore jist goln' by, nr secln' as you'd moved over inter Hopp, Dusonberry's pastur lot, I thort I'd drop i'r an' walk off with Jemimie, jest ez you to,' says ho. 'Sure ez guns, thar wero Jones's houi stnndin' plumb over tho liuo outer Hoppy pastur lot You seo tho high wind o' the night nforo lied lifted tho roof olPn JonnsN shod Tho warm rain had pelted in on 'em, and soaked inter 'om through an' through. Wall, you know dried npples. Thoy jist begun to swell an' swell. Th.y couldn't push tho wall down, butsumpin' had to givo. That bumpln' wero tho houso. Ez them fivo hundred bushels o' apples kep' a doublln' thtirself in size, thoy jist quietly puhbixi that houso along, b'gosh, never a mortal up in it, till thoy landed it safe an' sound over on Hoppy Dusenberry's lot. Wall, o' course Jonas couldn't go back on his word, an' Billy got the gdl. But tho dried apples was sp'ilt." An I tho Old Settler took his umbrella out of the woodbox and went homo beaming. Cnnmta'M Itlniriitflrcnt Territory. Cor. Chicago Herald. "In regard to tho steady and spontaneous growth of tho northwest territory, not in Manitoba alone, but all along tho lino of tho Canada Pacific railway, it can only bo said to Iki boyond precedent in tho history of tho world. Tho soil is inexhaustible Last year over 80,000 emigrants from Ontario and tho states settled on tho free grants of land given to actual settlen These pioneers took over 810,000,000 into that suction, and expended this money in tho development of farm lutuU Thero are, to my poivjnal knowledge, extensive coal districts in tho valloy of tho Saskatchewan and at E hnonton, though as yet almost ontlroly un leveloped.

I havo seen abundant crops of wheat, oats, and barley harvested in less than four months after sood sowing. In tho Manitoba region, as you well know, tho climate changes very rapidly, and tho short but sovero winter thero experienced has beon tho only obstacle to its settlement Yet, for nil that, tho city of Winnipeg has sprung into a prosperous condition, nnd Is now the leading city of southern British America. "Do you know what progress tho Canada Pacific railway is making toward completion" "That road is doing moro to advauco the comtry in industrial wea'th than any othei which tho selfish homo government has projected.

You should have, at tho owning of tlu campaign, besides tho matters already mentioned: Ono dozen kegs of nails, wherowith to nail tho enemy's lies.

Oh! ovory timo arraign tho administration. And a common nnaignmout will not do. If any platform contain not a scathing arraignment of tho ncuninistraiion thosamo is a liar and n bo tho ramo moro or less. If, unfortunately, you aro on tho sido of tho L ministration, then you must arraign the other party. But you labor under a great disadvantage if you aro in with tho administration. It ts so much easier to stand in the street and throw stonos at tho window thnu it is to stand in tho window and throw stones into tho street Blossod bo opposition. Becauso whyi You're liablo to run out of stones.

OVEE A PEE0LPI0E. 1 Team Huns Away VTltUii Coach on a tcop Mountain Hide. 3autn Barbara Press. Tho stago coach which runs daily between 3auta Barbara and Los Alamos wero rrrocked yesterday afternoon whUo coming iown the grado on tho south sido of tho Santa Ynoz mountains, about ton or twelve oiilos'from this city. Soon after leaving a rteep rocky slopo on tho mountain sido, rightly named "Slippery Rock," and whoro tho descent is at an nnglo of, degrees, with a Bhoor fall of precipitous rock of fully 200 feet on ono sido, ono of tho load horses became unmanageable and started to run. tho driver, did. his best to hold hi hla team. Tho brakes wero put on tight, and as tho horses commenced to go ot a reckless, breakneck erieedjlown. tho croaked, rocky, Darrow mclino, tho driver realized "tho impossibility of stopping them. Thoro were loveral miles of a steep grade below, and it was narrow, rocky and crooked, To Btay on tho stage was to go over a precipice and bo dashod to pieces. Having decided that tho stago could not bo saved, Butterfleld shouted to tho two possongors inside to "jump out and save your lives 1" At tho Bamo timo tho driver dropped lines and whip aud spring from his seat upon tho rocky bank on tho off sido of tho team. Mr. Ben Leibcs, who was ono of tho passengers, was tho first to jump out Ho was light aud fell Iiko a feather, right sido up. Tho other passenger was R. Estill. Ho was less fortunate than his companion and in jumping among tho rocks was badly hurt Tho stago, n minute after Estill had jumped off, wont over a precipice into a chasm on tho loft of tho road, about two hundred feet deop. Tho jerk with which it wont over broko tho couplings from tho two lead horses, which went galloping down tho road unhurt Tho wheol horses woro dragged backwnrd by tho stago coach and wont all together to tho bottom of tho precipice Tho stago was badly wrecked and the baggago reduced to small pieces. Singular to relate, the two horses, which wero dragged after tho stage, were found among tho wreck, almost unhurt VHEEE AEE MADE. Turned Out at tho Itnto of Four a Weak for Private Amusements or Tubllc Knlortaliimc'nt, A factory was found on tho top floor of a Chatham street business place by a reporter of Tho Now York Morning Journal Sovon Italian workmen woro busily employed putting tho machine together. Tho propriotor is a stout, good-looking American. "Beon long in this business?" ho was asked. "About years, and I suppose I havo not mado loss than 5,000 organs in that timo, which represents an average of four now hand-organs a week turned out for tho entertainment of an appreciative public." "Aro thoy exponsivo?" "They cost all tho way from $100 to $3,500 apiece. Tho larger ones aro mado principally for tho show business, 'currousels,' or merry-go-rounds and circuses. I do business direct with tho purchaser. Tho professional is my best customer." "And your business season is when?" "Just before fall I havo occassionnlly as many as tlib men working at ono timo, and when I get very hard up I press a fow pianoforte makers into tho service. It is a businoes that requires tho highest kind of skilled lnbor." Taking nn old bnrrel from n disused instrument ho proceeded to illustrate. "You see this barrel with its legion of pins? Well, it takes three pounds of metal to produco ten tunes. I suppose thoro are not less than 2,500 pins in this barrel, all of which are put in separately by hand. Tho pipes aro mado of spruco, chorry, or pino, according to tho quality of tono desired." "Does tho padrono system obtain now?" "No, . that is played out Nearly nil organ-grinders aro their own bosses. I also mako organs for private amusomont for families in tho country instruments that will play danco music for winter ovenings. The list of dnnces is sent to mo and I fill tho bill. Onco in a while I mako hand-organs for country churches, though very rarely. Last year my biggest orders camo from Louisville and Now Orleans In fact, I mako organs for all parts of tho world London, Paris, Italy, Cuba, tho West Indies, everywhere. Tho American woods nro better seasonal than almost any other, and are also cheaper. That is the reason." Cooltiifr Oir a Composing Itooui. Helen Campbell in Tho Continent Tho composing room of Tho Now Orleans Pk'nyuno is situated in tho upper story of it publication house, just under tho roof, nnd in summer is extremely hot Last season an inspiration seems to havo como to ono of tho oppressed occupants, and in accordance with it n vortical wooden box wa3 constructed in tho corner of tho room, with oponings nt tho floor and ceiling, and furnished with a pipe for supplying water at tho top and a pan and drain at tho bottom for receiving and carrying it safely away. The was bent over tho upper end of tho shaft, and fitted with a nose Iiko that of a watering-pot, so as to deliver a shower of spray instead of a solid stream. On connecting it with tho tho movement of tho water was J found to cause an, activo circulation of tho air in that part of tho robin, which was drawn in at tho upper opening of tho shaft and issued again, cool and fresh, at tho floor level Tho most surprising thing about tho experiment seems to have beon tho effect of tho water in cooling tho air to a dogroo much below its own temperature. With Mississippi water, which when drawn from tho indicated a tompcraturo of 84 degrees, tho air of tho room, in which tho thermometer at tho beginning of tho trial stood at 1)0 degrees, was cooled in passing through tho length of the shaft to 74 or about 20 elegroes below tho temperature at which it entered, aud 10 dogroos below that of tho water which was used to cool it. Of course tho absorption of heat by tho evaporation of a portion of tho water accounts for its rofrigoratiug effect, but tho result seems to havo boon so easily and attained, that tho experiment would bo worth repeating.

"Who's ull do kids, Chimraie?" asked an evil-looking shoo black at tho foot of Chr topher street, vestordav of an eoually gr less acquaintance. "Dunno. Guess it's 'scursion by do loolcs of 'em." Certainly thero was a holiday and excursion-like about tho crowds of youngsters decked. ttioir "host" clothes, which in most en wero enouch. but In all scrupu lously clean. Three hundred and ninoty three children had been brought by tlu missionaries and ladies who devote thom Eolvcs to caring for tho poor, to embark on i special steamer and bo convoved to the nur invigorating nir of tho lnko region. Then! wero two distinct parties, ono of them, numl oerlng somo sixty, being destined for West grant lake. Tho other party numbered Sli in nil, their destination beiiiff Au Sable which takes 212, Peru, which takes 75, Vn cour 16, balmon River 11, andForona, whic takes 20. Tho boat wa3 to havo started at 4 p. m.1 but by tliat timo a mere handful onlv of tlij urchins was on board Batch after batchl howovor, straggled in attended bv the ladio who liad gathered them together Jher nnd thoro, or by a parent and a tearfu brother or sister, tho tears being duo to our as much ns bereavement On tho deck al woro bustlo nnd confusion. Cnmp stools wor nt a premium for somo timo, but a hlddeil supply, discovered on tho lower floor, wai exultantly seized and dragged to tho light ol aay and comfort of tho children, who werl soon bivouacking aU bout tho hurricanl deck Most of them, Lcirides tho bundle cor tabling tholr baggage, which is alwayl ciutcnoa with feverish determination and novor lost sight of for a moment, carried sul sidiary packagos hi which was stowed awaj solid refreshments of a heterogenous char tor. Bananas seemed chiefly in supply ,whil ono young Teuton was seen fortifvinc h: inner man with a gigantic sausage, whic wa? disappearing with phenomenal and a most alarming rapiditv. If thero was bustling on boaid the steamer there was coil fusion worso confounded on the pier. Til checking oil of nearly four hundred chlldr split up into numberless 'small parties nn arriving wild with excitement over minute was no easy matter, and it h volved tho necessity of much explai atory shouting nnd pushing into t sltion or diminutive bodies. By d the energetic manager got thint straightened out somewhat Somo of til parties that were oxpected did not arriv but th missionaries had in soveral casl brought down a resorvo to fill up lu case J vacancies and so tho full list was mado uij those of tho reserve forces who wero left tho pier molting into tears. Five o'clock w closo at hand whon the last party of sovej camo iu with a rush and were passed 111 magic over the gang-plank, two littlo txxl dlere who had been nearly loft behind anl whoo cheeks were wet with briny tears wpil lifted on loard after tho gang-plank wd withdrawn, tho whistlo sounded, thopaddld revolved in mat indecisive losiuon poculis to n starting vessel, a thin and wiry chc arose from thoso .of tho children who coull spare the timo from thoir bananas anl cookies, and tho boat steamed out into tl Hudson. It is noticeable that on all theso excursion tho children, poor as thoy may bo. are al neatly, aud in many cases well dressed. Tlnl isoxplaincd by the fact that tho parent! always strugglo haul to provide ono suit ol decent clothes for each child, whUo tbl missionaries invariably supply clothes wheH tho parents absolutely cannot afford to dose! i SOLOMON IN ALL HIS GL0EY. .Extracts From n Jbeeturo leHverci to tho tiroccryman bv tho Had Miol Peck's Sun. "This Solomon is credited with being tl wisest man, nnd yot history says ho hod thousand wives.

Wouldn't threo causo you to stars? How would ten strike you? Whi man nlivo, you do not grasp the magnltudl of tho statement that bolomon had a thou sand wives. A thousand wives, standinl sido by side, would reach nbout four blockil Marching by fours it would tako them tweW ty minutes to pass a gl von point The lar summer resort hotel ouly holds about 500 i plo, so Sol would havo had to hire two hotel! if ho took his wives out for a dayinthl country.
