Do yon know you have asked for the costli
est thing
Ever made by the haDd above 7
A woman's heart and a woman's life
And a woman's wonderful love?
Do yon know you have alied for the price
less thing
As a child iniyht ask for a toy 7
Demanding what others have died to win.
With the reckless dash of a boy?
Yon have written my lesson of duty out
Man-like yon have questioned me;
Now stand at the bar of woman's soul.
Until I shall question thee.
You require your mutton shall be always
Your socks and shirts be whole;
I require your heart to be true as a God'
And pure as Heaven your soul.
You require a cook for your mutton and
I require fur greater thing ;
A seamstress you're wanting for socks and
for shirts,
I look for a man and a king
A king for the beautiful realm called home,
And a man that the Maker, God
Shall look upon as He did on the first,
And say, "It Is very good."
I am fair and young, but the rose will fade.
From my soft, young cheek one day-
Will yon love me then 'mid the falling
As you did 'mong the blooms of May 7
Is your heart an ocean so strong and deep
I may launch myall on it tide!
A loving woman finds heaven or hell
On the day she is made a bride.
I require all things that are good and true.
All things that a man should be ;
If you give this all, I would stake my life
To be all you demand of me.
If you cannot be this a laundress and cook
You can hire, with little to pay ;
But a woman's heart and woman's life
Are not to be won that way.
A Night in the Irish Sea.
We were in the English channel,
upward bound, and steering a course
for Tuskar, with the wind S. S. W.,
breezy, fitfnl, and charged with a
dense, drizzly vapor, which, with the
heavy swell heaving in from the At
lantic, we viewed us indicative of a
gale. Eight bells had just struck,
summoning the first watch, when
Captain Howard joiued me on the
quarter-deck, saying:
"In with the light cauvass, and
double-reef the topsails before tLe
watch goes below, Mr. C. This weath
er ain't to be trusted."
"That's so," was my brief response,
as I turned away to issue the neces
sary orders, which had scarce passed
my lips, when a vivid flash of light
ning illuminated the scene for an in
stant, and was succeeded by a crash
of thunder so terrific that every soul
on board crouched, cowering, and sent
an anxious glance aloft, ex;ecting to
witness the fall of our towering spars,
which the shock had shaken from
truck to step.
Almost a minute had elapsed ere a
soul moved from the position in which
that warning crash had arrested them,
and I was on the point of repeating
the order to "let fly 'gallant sheets and
halyards," when the fluttering of the
canvas announced its execution.
"Lay aloft and hand them, some of
you ! Haul down the flyingand outer
jibs!" I shouted, and as the ready
seamen sprang to obey the order, I
turned to my superior, saying:
"Heavy thunder that, sir !"
"Ay! Did you feel the old ship
shiver? I clmost fancied that she
had touched the bottom, so palpable
was the shock."
"And I. Will youhave the canvas
hauled up, sir? I think that bolt was
but the herald of the gale."
"Do ibtless ! Yes ! but reef the top
sails first. Let me know when you
have her snug," and passing forward.
Captain Howard descended the poop
ladder, seeking shelter from the driz
zle in his own cabin.
For some fifteen minutes the task of
shortening sail progressed without in
terruption, when tne breeze Tailed
abruptly, rendering me apprehensive
of a furious and sudden attack by the
storm king from some new quarter.
The topsail yards were on the caps at
the moment, and the men, in the act
of laying out on the main-topsail yard
to reef the sail, and eager to expedite
matters, I shouted:
"Aloft there. Be alive, my lads.
Take two reefs in one."
"Ay, ay, sir. Two in one it is," re
sponded Sam Howard, our third mate
and brother to our captain, as he gain
ed the weather ear'ing and began to
haul up the second reef; when retreat
ing aft a few paces I paused beside the
binnacle to note the position of the
ship's head by compass.
A minute latter I was gazing in
tently at the latter, when a slight
shock in the waist, succeeded by a
heavy splash alongside and a confus
ed hubbub aloft, attracted my atten
tion, when, with the starling cry, "A
man overboard !" ringing in my ears,
I sprang to the rail, but could distin
guish, nothing usual in the water.
"Who's overboard?" I demanded,
hailing the top, into which the crew
were tumbling in wild disorder.
"Third mate, sir," was the answer
returned by at least Lalf a score, as
they came tumbling down rigging and
backstays, and rushed towards the
boats regardless of all orders.
"Avast, all ! Fall back, men, and
wait for orders," shouted Captain
Howard, bounding up the poop-ladder
at an instant. "Where is he, Mr. C?
Can vou see him ?"
"No, sir. Shall I"
"Yes, yes. Clear away a boat by
all means," he exclaimed, anticipat
ing my demand. "The life-boat out
with her at once." And clutching
my arm wildly as I was rushing past
hiin, he added in a hoarse whisper:
"Be alive for God's sake ! The gale
will be on us in less than ten min
utes." ' The solemn adjuration was not lost
upon me, added to which a sincere
friendship for the perilled youth, who
had proved himself a brave and effi
cient officer on several occasions, ren
dered me doubly anxious to effect his
Our life-boats of which we had
two were secure on the beams, one
end of each resting on the poop deck,
to which they were secured by a lash
ing through a deck ring-bolt, added
to which they were bottom up, ren
dering their transfer a task of no small
moment. But our men worked with
a will, and in less than three minutes
accomplished the task, which on auy
ordinary occasion would have occupi
ed full fifteen. In five minutes the
boat was afloat and her crew seated.
when springing over the rail I trrasp-1
ed the main chain-plates, and dropped
into the stern-sheets, exclaiming: I
"Ship oars, and give way for your j
my lads." 1
A moment later the gallantcrewof;
the little "nut-shell" responded to the
order with a pull which urged her full j
six yards from. the ship's side, and out !
into the darkness on her errand of j
mercy, while collecting my energy
for the nurnose. I gave utterance to a
loud and prolonged shout, intended aa I
a herald of rescue to my perilled mess
For half a minute I listened breath
less awaiting the response I scarce
hoped to hear; but which came at
length, a faint "ha, ho!" convincing
us that he whom we sought still lived
to reap the benefit of our endeavors.
With a prolonged and joyous cheer
which was taken up ancl echoed on
board the ship we answered him,
while our light and bouyant craft fair-:
ly flew from swell to swell, under the
impulse imparted by the vigorous ef
fort! of her craw.

"You must be mistaken, Ben. That ,

bears a strange resemblance to her."
Again we heard his voice more di--
et than before, and were about to

our ears , mingled with, as it were, a
deep aud Ions drawn sigh the omi-
' inL'of the teniTt. as it were the cra-h
of a falling ruin, .annihilated the
siitrhte.-t hope of i-eir.s? heard.
Kor Kome two minutes the boat was
fairly buried in a cloud of foam and
spray, which half suffocated while it
deprived us of all management of our
froil rnft Ttnr thp van nf the tem-
frail craft. But the van of the tem
pest being past, we renewed our ex
ertions, the crew rowing while I
made a feeble effort to bail, using my
sou'wester for that purpose.
lhree minutes passed three ases of
agonizing suspense, during which we
made several attempts to raise a cheer
nuicu iuiK.it reuuu tne ear oi our
messmate, but in vain; we could
scarce hear each other, and I was fast
becoming convinced of the impossi-
bility of effecting his rescue, when the
when the after oarsman held water
with his oar, sheering the boat broad-
side on and half filling her.
"Cnrow and toss that oar, Ben," I
shouted, throwing myself to wind
ward on the after thwart,
"I can't, sir. Something foul of it,"
he shouted in reply, with his lips to
my ear.
At that moment a faint bubbling
cry reachtd me as the boat fell off",
when, uttering a joyous shout. I grasp
ed the loom of Ben's entangled oar,
and aided by him soon succeeded in
hauling within reach of my hand the
insensible form of poor Howard. Ben
and I were in the act of hauling him
on board, when the bow-oarsman
shouted :
"See the ship, sir. She'll run us
Obeying the impulse created by his
exclamation, I raised my eyes, and
glancing hurriedly around beheld the
ship less than thirty yards distant,
and on her beam ends, while the par
tial gleam of the signal lantern dis
closed also the astounding fact that
we were driving past her at a fearful
Persevering in tne rescue of our
messmate, when it was accomplished,
we had lost sight of the vessel, and, af
ter a futile attempt to impel the boat
against the terrific gale, were obliged
to desist ana scua oeiore it.
"We may bid farewell to the old
boat. We never can reach her in this
gale. Don't you think so, sir?" de
manded Ben as he tossed his oar out
of the rowlock and laid it inboard.
"I fear not," was the brief response,
adding after a brief pause: "We may
reach Liverpool though, if this gale
don't hold for an age."
"It'll go down 'fore moruin', sure,"
said the old tar. "I on'y wish I'sa as
certain 'bout the old ship's I am 'bout
this yer blow. She's in a bad fix when
we druv past, don't you think so, Mr.
C. ?"
"Yes. I fear her cruise and that of
our gallant messmates is ended by
this time,"said I, sadly; to which my
comrades responded by more than one
long drawn sigh.
But a truce to the description of our
emotions. Sfltice it to say tLey were
such as I do not desire to experience
a second time, and proved so perma
nent that we struggled against them
in vain. During the succeeding hour
we kept but two oars shipped, and
those only to aid in keeping our buoy
ant craft before the wind. But at tho
close of that period the increasing
swell obliged me to come to at all haz
ards, when all our oars and strength
were necessary to keep the boat in a
safe position. Lying to we shipped
but little water, so that slight exer
tion was required to keep the boat
free; but we soon began to suffer thirst
a thirst that was rendered intolera
ble by the knowledge that we were
void of the means of assuaging it.
Another hour dragged slowly by,
during which our torture increased,
when Old Ben leaped from the after
thwart, exclaiming:
"My eyes ! What a precious set o'
ninnies we are. Here we be a dyin'
for water and any quantity fallin'
'round us," and hastily, dotiing his
oiled suit, he resumed his seat, when
his companions, myself excepted,
hastened to follow his example, ex
ulting in the prospect of relief which
the driving rain presented.
The clothing of the thirsty crew
speedily became saturated, when, dof
fing their jackets, they wrung tne
moisture from them, using their sou'
westers as receptacles for the briny
liquid which they gulped down greed
ily, only to exaggerate their torture.
Even while beseeching them to re
frain I could scarcely control my own
cravings, but fortunately the inade
quacy of the supply at theircommand
proved my safety,aud I was obliged to
suffer on--willingly however,as I wit
nessed the increasing torture they en
dured. At length old Ben, assured of
the futility of his efforts,desisted from
further attempts to assuage his thirst,
and donning his oil jacket and joined
me in entreating his messmates to de
sist Urged by our joint entreaties
they at length did so, and resuming
their oars, which had been suffered to
hold water frequently during the last
hour, rendered me ellicient aid in the
management of our frail craft
The gale broke soon after midnight,
and subsiding rapidly exposed us to a
new species of danger; the strong cur
rents peculiar to the channel causing
the sea to break with fearful violence
around and over us, threatening us
momentarily with destruction. How
oft during the remainder of that mo
mentous night, has the approach of
a mountain billow caused me to in
hale a long breath, and, as its tower
ing crest fell into seething ruin around
our tiny craft, close my eyes upon the
scene which was too sublimely awful
for mortal gaze.
A hundred times ere then had I en
countesed the "storm king" upon the
watery waste, and laughed his power
to scorn, wondering in what phase of
his wild career across the waters was
to be found that overwhelming sub
limity which poeU have made their
darling theme. I discovered it then.
On all former occasions I had witness
ed the rise, progress and decrease of
gales from the deck of some staunch
sea-boat, against the sides of which
the fury of the waves was spent in
vain; but now the veil of perfect safe
ty was removed from my eyes, aud I
was obliged to own the existence of
that same sublimity at which I had
scoffed as the creation of prolific

With the sun's advance came
brighter skies, his beams drinking up
the vapors, until he attained an alti
tude of some thirty degrees, when a
change of wind lifted the pall, and
rolling it away to S. W. in vast piles,
disclosed to us a scene supremely
grand a wildly-heaving ocean, spark
ling like silver in the morning sun
light, and on its unquiet bosom with
in full view, at least a score of half
dismantled craft, with some and but
a few, unmarred by the late convul
sions of the elements.
"Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah !" Thrice
joyous was the cheer, and thrice re-!
peated as we made the pleasing ns-,
covery of their presence. !
"The old 'Marion.' as I live!"shout-'
ed old Ben, after a brief scrutiny of a
ship partly dismantled, about a mile
to windward. "There away. Don't

"Right, Ben. Give way, my lads, !
'tis our own shin." I exclaimed as I :
recognized the spare main-topgallant-;

in a previous gale had obliged I
me to send up. '

and none other, to the said pension
Sec. 2. Upon the receipt of such
vouchers, properly executed, and the
establishment of the identity of the
person entitled to the pension, the
Pension agent shall immediately for
ward by mail to the said pensioner
direct, and to no other person, a check
payable solely to the order of said
pensioner, except when the pensioner
is required to appear personally and
receive the pension.
Sec. 3. Xo pension shall, under any
circumstances, be paid to any one but

in persons legally disabled, when pay
ments may be made to guardians;
and in case of persons resident abroad
when payment may be made as pro
vided in'previous acts.
Sec. 4. Pension agents shall re

sioners, including postage, 30 cents,
payable by the United States, and not
more shall be received by them under
penalty of S-flO.
Sec." 5. The Secretary of the Inter
ior shall provide blank vouchers to be
used as above stated, and regulations
Sec. 6. Pension agents and their
authorized clerks shall take and cer
tify affidavits of all pensioners who
may appear beforj them for that pur
pose, and give the check for the pen
sion to the pensioner personally; and
for taking any such affidavit falsely
and corruptly, the affiant shall lie
deemed guilty of perjury the penalty
of which shall be imnrisoment for five
vears or less, and a fine not exceeding
Sec. 7. The fee of an agent or at
torney for the prosecution of a claim

The agent or attorney must file (with
cost to the claimant) with the Com

articles of agreement, duly attested,
setting forth the fee agreed upon. I
When no such agreement is filed or
approved by the Commissioner, the
fee shall be ?10 and no more.
Sec. 8. For contract for demand,
or receipt or retention of any com
pensation greater than above stated
the penalty shall be a fine of S-jOO or
less, or imprisoment for five years or
less, or both.
Sec. 9. The Commissioner of Pen
sions shall forward to the Pension
agents, with the certificates of pension,
one of the articles of agreement, if ap
proved by him. and directions as to
the payments of fees.
Sec. 10. The Pension agents shall
deduct from the amount of pension
due the amount of fee, if any, and
forward the same (less thirty cents)
as directed by the Commissioner.
Indictment by a Greene County Grand
The Grand Jury of Greene county,
at the conclusion of their labors, after
having completed their work of in
dicting numerous persons for offenses
under the law, brought an indictment
against King Alcohol, taking such
joint action as is embodied iu the fol
lowing report:
The Graud Jury, at the close of this
term, wish to express their reflections
during their labors in the jury room.
Facts proven before us, show the
following facts to be trne:
1st. Some of the best men iu society
are now neglecting their families and
business, and wear in their faces the
marks of having been too long at the
2d. Many young men who might be
useful in society, having become dan
gerous elements therein, and are
tending to ruin, through the influence
of strong drink.
3d. Many of the children of this
generation are growing up under the
influence of dram drinking, and are
being schooled in vice and immorali
ty. 4th. Some have been indicted for
crimes committed while under the in
fluence of strong drink.
For all the above, parents, children
and criminals, we wish to express our
sympathy, and make our appeal to all
peace loving citizens, to labor with us
for their reformation.
From the above testimony, we find
the following true bill again t King
A. He i3 guilty of nearly all the
crime in our country.
B. He is blighting the hopes of our
country, by destroying the morals of
the children and youth, who are to
constitute our future citizens. !
C. He destroys the peace and hap-j
piuess of the family, of the neighbor-!
hood, and of society at large. j
D. He ruins hopes of parents, aa J
breaks the heart of dependent wives
aud daughters.
E. He fills our jails, almshousesand '
penitentiaries. i
F. And from well authenticated i
statistics, in the United States alone,
during a period of ouly twelve
months, in one h undrcd thousand in
ttanc.ex, we find him guilty of murder
in the first degree.
In closing our term of service, we
wish to bear our united testimony to
the fidelity and integrity of our pros
ecuting attorney, J. E. Hawes, and
express our enure connoence mat ne
will use all lawful means to bring all
criminals to justice.
We also appeal to the executive of-

ine remainder of tne men. being
down below, and not aware of what
was going on, were startled when the
shots was fired. In an instant all
was conrusion on board. Some in
alarm believed it to be an In-
dian attack, thinking, doubtless, that
Spod Tail & Co., were taking that
means of showing their appreciation
of honors which were so lavishly be
stowed upon them on the occasion of
their recent visit to Washington.
Others imagined the boats to be sink
ing, and were making frantic appeals
to the pilot to have soundings made
so that they could calculate their
chances for a wade. But neither of
the surmises were correct, for the in
nocent cause of all the excitement, as
soon as the first shots were rired,
started on a run toward the boat, as
in the opposite direction the bluffs at
this point were so high that they
could not climb them.
Xow ensued a scene that baffles
description. All hands were armed
and poping away. "Here they
come!" "There they go!" "Whoop,
hurrah !" anil confusion reigned su
preme. Away went the antelopes,
taking a backward direction along the
beach. Back went the boat. Bang,
bang! went the muskets ! Ding, ding,
went the engine's bell, call on the en
gineer to back with all speed, so as
keep within musket shot. "Hurrah !
there goes one," is the shout, and the
cook of the boat, who up to this time
naa preserveu ins wonted dignified
equilibrium, suddenly upset a pitcher
of hot water on a lame dog, who un
aware of the battle without, was sly
ly appropriating a piece of buffalo
steak, to his heirs and assigns forever.
It is needless to say he lost his appe

of the hand, and extended eye-balls

The most singular part of the fun
lies in the fact that there were only

Mysterious People.
Every one has now and then en
countered in society, people who have
no apparent property, real or person
al, yet who seem to "have all the com
forts and luxuries which wealth pro
cures without making any of those
exertions which procure wealth. They
are generally very pleasant, compan
ionable people, who have been
everywhere and seen everything.
They know everybody, and every
body knows them, up to a certain
point. The father drives a neat two-in-hand,
the wife and daughters dress
elegantly, and the son's pocket money
is the allowance of a prince impe
rial. They have the best rooms in the
most fashionable hotel, or if they
keep house, their menage is unex
ceptionable. They have the most
premature lamb aud the earliest peas,
the handsomest landau, and the
choicest seats at the opera. In short,
they feed on the roses and life. But
how do they manage to do it? The
Dores, you see, are charming people;
the ladies are well-bred and bright,
and Dore senior is courtly, not to say
distinguished; but what is the trade,
business, profession of Dore, senior?
what does he do for a living? He is
evidently immensely wealthy, but it
is just as evident that he is not worth
a cent. Xobody can find out that he
owns a square inch of real estate or a
dollar's worth of any kind of stock,
petroleum or other. He is not a spec
ulator, that is certain. Is he a gamb
ler? His habits and associates are be
yond reproach. Is he (and this should
be put in the smallest diamond type
like the whispers in Charles Reade's
novels) a counterfeiter? The suspicion
dies of its own folly. If he were a for
eigner one might suppose him to be
an eccentric nobleman examining the
social institutions or our country, but
unfortunately for so flatteringa hypo- ,
i nesis, ne is American oorn ano ored j
There are just two things known about
him, the rest is mystery. The two
things are, first, that he has no visi
ble means of support; and, secondly,
that he lives like

as to gradually spread th2 foot back to
iLs natural form and n(.i.iion a it

To do this we mu.-t i:rt thoroughly
cut down the heels to within an eiet.t
of an inch or a lirle more of th I e
yielding horn of the sole, trii - l"

j The nest object Vs to . rradi lilv force
j the heels outw ard. There are three
wni-a rl.-.ino. th;a .
First, form the shoe nf an eonal
thickness ail the way round, with nail
; holes punched well back in the heels,
j and fit accurately to the foot, so that
j it wiil come out even with the edge of
into the horn to hold firmlv without
endangering pricking, leaving the
points stick down straight. After all
are driven down, pull them out again.
Heat the shoe and spread it about one
eight of an inch, more or less accord
ing to what the foot will bear,
and put on again. Xow, drive the
nails again, each a little at a time un
til driven home, and clinch firmly.
It is seen that the shoe must now ex
ert an outward pressure upon the heels
equal to r:ie increased breadth of the
shoe. Keep the foot reasonably soft.
In a few days or a week the clinches
can be carefully drawn, the nails pull-
eo out, me snoe made wider and nail
ed as before, which'can be repeated so
long as the nails will hold well.
A simpler method is that of the
convex shoe. The foot is prepared as
before, with the difference of not cut
ting away the bearingsurface so much
at the heels. The shoe, instead of
having the bearing surface level,
should be convex, the outer edge from
an eighth to three-sixteenths of an
inch lower than the inner edge, run
ning out at the toe. This surface
should be filed down carefully, and so
fitted to the foot that the heels will
rest on these inclined surfaces, the
shoe being a little wider than the
heels, and nail on. Xow there is a
continued slipping outward of the
heels when weight is thrown upon the
foot. Remember one point here. Do
not commit the error of cutting down
the heels very close. You must have
horn enough to keep the shoe from
possibly coming in conUet with the
sole. If it does, the inner edge press
ing upon the sole forms a shoulder
which will not only prevent expan
sion, but bring pressure upon the
yielding sole, bruising the sensitive
sole above, and aeuce lameness will
res 'ilt.
The third, and by far the best, is
that of Tyrrel's patent shoe. By this
shoe, if properly fitted and ap'plied,
the foot can be expanded as little or
as much as may be desired. It will
also enable expanding one or both
heels as may be desired, and is un
questionably the be-: form of shoe
ever invented for the cure of contrac
tion. The only difference there i.- in
this shoe from the common is : first,
the inside edges of the heels are turn
ed up into little clips ; second, tin
shoe is so cut out at each side of the
toe as to enable bend;ng the quarters
ouiwaru, i;y putting tne tongs or a
screw lietween the heels and pressing
them outward. The lips atthe heels
extending up inside of the hars at the
extreme of the heels pris the heels
outward just so much as the shoe is
spread, which can be done every few
days at will until the foot is expanded
as much as may be desired. This is
the great consideration in the cit of
contractions so far as mech; nical
pressure is concerned, and of ali the
shoes I have seen for the purpose, this
is the bet, and in my judgmeut is
unrivaled. With its use contraction!
em lie cured in a short time. The
shoe has leen thoroughly tested, and
is shown to be the best for the cure of
contracted feet ever brought into
use. Prof. Magncr on the J-.'dutalion

On Caney Fork.
., ,
borne years ago, when Paducah was
smaller and not so pretentious a place
as it is now, the question of common
schools was up for debate at a meet-
ing of the debating club. A well
known lawyer of the city, who now
nt the ;head of country affairs, ;
being assigned in the debate to the
negative, or opposition to the schools
made an able argument against them
and concluded by stating it was best
for people not to have too much edu
cation any way, as in such cases they
resembled his friend on the affirma
tive, whose great learning rendered
him rather a worthless memlier. Xow
this friend is a well known mechanic
of the city, who has had legislative
honors, and did service as a preacher.
He at once rose to his feet and said,
"his friend, the lawyer, reminded
him of circumstances that occurred
on Caney Fork, in Tennessee. There
was but one man in the settlement
who could read, and that was the
postmaster. Once a week when the
mail arrived, all the neighbors gath
ered at the postofflce to hear the
newspaper read. On one occasion the
postmaster was reading an account of
the great emigration going on from
the old to the new States in the West.
In some places it was so great that
the emigrants had eaten up all the
corn. The postmaster was proceeding
to finish the account when one of his
auditors told him to stop and explain
what emigrant meant. This bother
ed the postmaster and when pressed,
said he did not exactly know what
emigration meant, but he supposed it
must be either a coon or a hog, as

business, at a height of forty feet from
the auditorium floor.
The woman descended passed
through the parquettc, took her place
on the perch at the front of the see
oud tier, and grasped the bar of the
trapeze; the man caught himself, by
a i ist oi nis legs, to tue smaller Dar,
far up above the orchestra and held
the trapeze to which the woman was
to catch by her feet, in the two an
gles made by the ropes and the bar ;
the orchestra 9truek up a faster tune
the woman launched out and sailed
over the heads of the people, threw
her legs out within the ropes held by
tne man, let go tne nying bar and
came down, head first but safe. We
have described this performance thus
minutely that the reader may have
some idea of what followed.
The last and closing feat led the
man to do just what the woman had
done, the bar to which he was to
catch hanging from the ceiling, how
ever, but in the same position as that
he had held for the woman but the
woman was to take the awful voyage
with him fastened to him by wrist
lets. I he woman was on the nerch
ahead the man, leaving him up in his
out position to carefully adjust the
ropes and a very necessary operation
as the reader will understand. He
did his work carefully, descending
and soon joined the woman on the
little platform. The man grasped the
nymg trapeze" nrmiy as the woman
passed her hands through the wrist
lets and clasped them around his
neck, and then, with his own life and
hers depending on his grip of hands
and feetf launched out on the long
swing. It was very pretty and grace
ful as handsome a picture as one can
well imagine, these tine specimens of
masculine and feminine physical
beauty, sailing through the air in a
grand curve, the woman hanging
loosly at the back of the man, whose
h'g- were being thrown forward to
landing place. The distance was
accomplished in, say two seconds; the
man's body had passed between the
two ropes, he had thrown his legs out
to catch as he came back, and trust
all to his feet and those two anglers;
and in another second he would have
been dashed to the pit head first, with
his own weight and the woman's.
In the instant allowed them to see
and know, the audience saw that the
man's right foot, as he came back,
ieai downward, was not caught. One
ould see and feel the great throb of
horror that went through the audience
' nd .bear the painful gulping of its
-;eath as the thought flashed through
overy mind, "Has he lost his grip?"
T: e athlete must have instinctively
felt, as he threw his leg apart, that
he would miss it, for even as he al
most loosened the grasp of his right
hand, he was seen to fix it again with
a convulsive movement that did not
t-s.-.iyu an v iiiai iixintu un)U liiui.
gestive of what might have been. Iu
the next minute, as the trapeze and
its double burden 9wept forward again
with its now helpless burden, about a
dozen hands were raised to catch the
woman's heels and release her. This
was accomplished rather awkwardly,
owing to the delicacy of the men, all
of whom seemed to think that it
would be very improper to grasp the
woman by the hips or thighs and re
lease her, easily and speedily.
An amusing feature in the affair
was the conduct of the leader of the
orchestra. Had their been a fall he
would probably have been crushed. As
he looked up and saw the slip and
heard the jer!i he sprang from his
Eerch and whirled around like a top,
ut he never missed a note. He was
frightened and felt it necessary that
he should know what was going on
but he kept on fiddling ! This trouble
aud excitement over, the Sanyeahs
went back to their stand, started out
again and accomplished their task
successfully, as they have a hundred
times and more.

[From the Cincinnati Catholic Telegraph.]
The Auditor of Ohio Decides They are
In a circular issued by tho Hon. Jas.
IL Godman, Auditor of State, to the
County Auditors and Assessors, we
find the following significent passage:
In using, theu, in the twelfth ar
ticle, the words 'public school houses,'
the framers of the Constitution meant
the hoaxes in which the schools pro
vided for in the sixth article were, aud
are to be, kept. The Legislature has
adopted this idea precisely and defi
nitely, providing that'public school
houses' shall beexempt from taxation.
The word public, as here used, means
the people of the State of Ohio. Xo
other meaning can be adopted, because
the Constitution declares these
schools shall be established and main
tained oy law throughout the Mate.
inereiore.no common school-houses
are exempt from taxation except
those owned by the public authorities
for common school purposes, under
the school laws of the State. AH oth
ers, with the grounds and fixtures an
nexed thereto, must be valued, and
placed on the list of taxable proper
ty." If this decision of the Auditor be
correct, we do not see why churches
should not be taxed. They are not
public churches, and are not under
the control of the State; therefore ac
cording to this extraordinary ruling of
the Auditor, and according to his rea
soning, they oughtto be taxed. Why
is it that this interpretation of the
Constitution did not strike the minds
of our legislators and judges hereto
fore .- -o one suspected that the fram
ers of the Constitution had any such
thought, until now. We attended the
discu.ssion of the Convention when
this common school question was be
fore it, and we heard nothing which
could induce us to suppose that the
members wished to enact a penal law
such as disfigured the Britisn statute
The Constitution guarantees to all
liberty of conscience. We believe that
education without religion is fatal to
Christianity,and now we are told that
we must pay a tax to the State of
Ohio before we can teach our Catho
lic children their catechism. There
were men in the Conventions who
formed the Constitution and they are
still living, whose great object in sup
porting the common school system
was its hostility to Christianity.
They knew that is religion was ex
cluded from the schools, infidelity
would follow. And so it has. It is
only by perpetual and sensational ef
forts and advertising on Saturdays
that theircongregationscan be gather
ed. If Catholic citizens be tax'rd for
having school-houses, we have no lon
ger liberty of conscience. The school
house, the crucifix, the Lord's Prayer,
aud the decalogue, are all parts of our
religious system. If we can not have
these without paying hush-money to
the State, then the boast about every
man being free to worship God ac
cording to the dictates of his con
science, is a contemptible sham. The
law compels us to pay tax for the sup
port of common schools, conscience
imposes a tax on us to build and sup
port Catholic schools, and now the
Mate Auditor gives another turn to
the screw, and tells us that we must
pay tax for having a conscience at
all !
We do not believe that this ruling-
of the Auditor will be enforced. He
no doubt thinks that he is right, and
we have no word of reproach for him;
bat we have an abiding faith in the
honesty and purity of our Judges, in
the patriotism of our Legislators, and
in the honesty ot public opinion.
These will not do us the great wrong
which the ruling of the State Auditor
threatens to inflict on Roman Catho
lic citizens.
How Clara Louise Kellogg Made Nilsson
How Clara Louise Kellogg Made Nilsson Break Her Fan.
A curious little episode diversified
the performance at the Academy of
Music one night. KeKogg.was sing
ing her very best, and looking her
very prettiest, conscious that her
Swedish rival was iu the hou.-e and
that the eyes of Xew York were on
them both. Xilsson, dressed in blue
velvet with an abundance of rich lace
and a profusion ofdiamonds glittering
iu ner ciii irii nuir, uccupieu a promi
nent box and languidly applauded
with her fan on the edge of the box.
In the second part of the programme.
Clara Louise sang "I'm Alone," was
rapturously encored, gave "Home,
Sweet Home" as an encore, and be
ing compelled to return a third time.
dispensed with the pianist, and seat-
ng herself at the piano, poured
forth with the most witching arch-
nesss and point the lover's ballad,
"She's fooling thee." It was noticed
that Xilsson listened to this with
extreme attention, and when the Kel
logg gave the lines:
She has rich hair of irolden hue.
Take care, tiike care,
Whnt she says it is nyt true;
lieware, beware.
She's fooling thee.
Xilsson, with a look of excessive an
ger, struck the box edge with her fan
so angrily ad to break it At this there
was a great laugh and a general clap
ping ot hands, the majority of tiie
people believing that she had done so
in the warmth of her administration
for her sister artist. But her angry
look belied this. The initiated
who were posted were highly amused
for it was evident that Xilsson
thought Kellogg's song was a reflect
ion on the heartless jilting of Gustave
Dore. He brought he into notice, !
made her a public favorite and the
idol of Paris; but when she had reach
ed the height she had sighed for, she
not only broke her marriage engage
ment with him, but even refused to
admit him to the drawing room as an
ordinary visitor. He was, in the complete-it
sense of the term, fo'bidden
the house.
English Spelling.
Often, in writing, a simple word is
required, of the orthography of which
ths writer is not sure. The dictionary
may be referred to, but it is not al
ways convenieht. An easy mode Is to
write tne word on a bit or waste pa
per, in two or three ways of which
you are in doubt Xine times out of
ten, the mode Which looks right is
right. Spelling particularly Engll-h
is so comnlefelv a. work 1

trusted. There is no reason why "re.
ceive" and "believe" should be spelt
differently, yet sounded alike, in tlieir
second syllables. Yet write them "re
cieve" ami "beleive," and the eye
shows jou the mistake at tnee. The
best way for young peoples and in
deed people of any age to learn to
spell, is to practice writing. Cobbett,
the famous English radical, taught
bis children grammar, by requiring
that they should copy their lessons
two or three times. These lessons he
himself gave them in the form of let
ters; and his French and English
grammar are two of the most amus
ing books in the English language.
Of course "learning to spell" came in
Martin Luther.

set "It was a faith of Luther's that
there were devils, npiritual denizens
of the pit, continually besetting men.
Many times, in his writings, this
turns upland almost a small sneer has
been grounded on it by some. In the
room of Wartburg.where he sat trans
lating the Bible, they still show you a
black spot on the wall, the strange
memorial of one of these conflict.
Luther sat translating one of the
Psalms: he was worn down with la-
bor, with sickness, with alwtinence

some hideous, indefinable image,
which he took for the Evil One, to
forbid his work. Luther started up,
