PINKY If THE WITIEM BOX. T. W. Chtten.l.u in sr. NiuliuliiH. A valuable Newfoundland doc, named Major, luteins 8l rayed from Jiis owner's house, was claimed in nil good liiil.i by another enlle man wlio recognized I lie dog as ti is own lostNewfoumlland. Argument and persuasion failing, suit was brought to recover Major, and I he ease was regularly brought into court, and came to (rial about Christmas Jiir.e between a judge uud a jury. Witnesses testified thai it was .Major and that it was not Major the animal ineanwhiji going Ireely to either or his claimants, neeming quite indifferent as to w hich might finally secure him. A week was taken up with conflicting teslimo ' ny, and neither the judge nor jury were the wiser or belter prepared to render a decision. At this point a woman living in the same house with Major's own er declared that her cat could set tle the question, since the cat and Major were on terms cf great friendship, eating and playing to gether, and sleeping on the same rug, while the cat was the sworn foe ol all other canines, and had worsted many in fair tidil. Here was a solution by which all parties lo the controvesy were will ing to abide, ami a formal writ was accordingly issued is the name of I fie people in the Slate, command-' in;i "all ami t-ingulur, tlieownei or owners ot a certain Maltaan cat, to produce the living body of the said animal before the Hon. So-and-so, a justice duly and legally cumuiis-t-ioued by the people of the com mon wealth aforesaid," at a given time and place duly specified in the writ, and "thereof In lail not at I heir own proper peril." At the time appointed the mo mentous cat was dul' produced belore the honorable court. The record does not state whether Puss was dulo sworn to tell "the Irulli, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth," nor whether his owner was required to act a proxy for him in this respect. However this may have been lie proceeded to vindicate his mis tress' assertions fir.-t with regard to his fighting qualities; for, on i he introduction of some strange nnimals of the canine species, brought by direction of the digni fied court, he dilated his lail to most mije.-tic proportions, arched his back in 11111111 mental style, and have battle lo the satisfaction of the spectators, if not lo that of his ndvers tries, clearing the room in line style, and in an exceedingly I brief space ol lime. .Next Major was brought in, whereupon Pussy's warlike mood and demeanor were speedily changed to demonstra tions ol at-miuinlaiice and cood- lellowship, t he animals recognizing eaoe otlier to llie satisfaction ol all concerned, and immediately ter minating by this conclusive evi dence a suit which, except lor (he shrewd thought of a woman, might have dragged on interminably and Jed to rancor and strife.

Tho year 1S(J0 will he a nipiiinrn. ble one in oliicial circles through- ut llie bouth. Ihe tanners are now ituiiuinK for the politicians on every hill and in evory valley, and it i-t no bluff they are niakiuir. Their guns are loaded nud primeil and when they gel within reach of tin ir game they let go both barrel al once. The whole South ix strewn with political corpses and the uir is full I leathers, and the work has but ju-t begun.

The warie-l old i'n- hlical ciow that ever iuiiel tiprouting corn don't seem In smell the powder until they are winjre!. And so the work goes on and spreads from Stale lo Slate. "Talk about mending polilicul fences," said a Georgia Congress man, "'a cyclone has struck mine. Tlie rails are blown across tlw Stale lnif, and even thettakeand rider holes are gone." The philosopher looking on at this wholesale turning out of cials and substitution ol new nen, is compelled to recognize t he fact that some injustice is being dune, but that the result cannot bnt prove benelictal. Hie new men will be closer lo tlie people ami mure considerate of I heir wishes. Alter awhile they will also begin to dodge nnd nhirk, and will wen the same kind of discipline Th larmers nave done come g"u work, and neither Ihe Democrats parly nor Ihe counlrv will suffer from it.
