"Here !" and Jim walked out of the pen, smiling. "1 understand you wish to pUad guilty to both charges," said the judge. "Yes, sir." and Jim looked up anxiously. "Jim. the Dayton work-house is nearly full, but there Is room for one more. You will pay a line or SlOand go to the work house for ninety days."

The lluncer's Knee TwUt. Just as famous old songs take in the strange surroundings of a burlesque, so do w 1 11 know n dances Thus, a sailor's hornpipe is generally encored in panto mime, and a spirited "Highland fling" scuds the average audience into ecstasies. And so these dances are still taught in the theatrical iiancing academies, with others in which the "steps" aro exceedingly dif ficult and intricate. Each step has its technical name, and for pantomime many dancers merely learn a certain number of them and subsequently work them into elances for themselves. There is a curious twirl of the leg, known as the "knee twist," which every actor or actress in the burlesque aims at mastering The knee twist is like a figure in skating It may appear easy to do it liefore )ou tr), but not after Pall Slall Gazette.

Grant on the Terms of tlie Icka burg Surrender. The following letter, dated New York, Nov. HO, lb4, wus addressed to Gen. Marcus J Wright, agent of the war de partment for the collection of Confederate records, by whose permission it is printed from the original manuscript: "Di vu tii.M-i:AL Herewith I send )0U Gen I'emlierton's account of the surren der of Vicksburg As the written matter is 'copy,' nnd supping )nu have what it has been copied from, I do not return it, though I will if )ou inform me that )oti want it "A gentleman from Philadelphia sent me the same matter I return herewith, last summer I probably left the paper at Idling llr.inch, but do not know cer tainly. All tin re is of importance in tho matter of the siirronde- of Vicksburg is contained in the corresjiondence lietween Gen l'emlMTfon und myself The fact is, I Gen Pemlierton, leing a northern man i commanding a southern army, was not at 1 the same lilvrty to surrender an arm) that a man of southern birth would lie. In adversit) or iltfr.it he liecame an ob ject of suspicion, and felt It. Howell was asotitloru man all over, and knew the garrison of Vicksburg h ut to surrender or lie captnrid, and knew it was liest to stop furtht r effusion of blood by surrendering. He did all he could to bring about that result 'l'emlKTlon is mistaken In several points It was ltoweu that propo-ed that he and A J Smith should talk over the ninth r of the surrender and submit their ' views Niither Pemlierton nor I objected, but we were not willing to commit our selves to mceptuig such terms as they might propose In a short time those otli , cers returned How en actcsl as spokes man What he said was sulistantially this- The Confederate army was to lie kt mittcd to march out witli tho honors of I war, carr) lug with them their arms, col I ors and field batteries The national troops were then to march in and occupy the cit), and retain the siege guns, small arms not in the hands of the men, all pub i lie proiiert) remaining. Of course I re jected the terms at once. I did agree, however, liefore we separated to write Pemlierton what terms I would give. , The corresiHiiidenco is public and speaks I for itself. I held no council of w ar. Hos- tilities having ceased, officers and men soon became acquainted with the rea- son vv hy. Curiosity led officers of I rank most all the general officers to , visit my headquarters with the hope of ' getting some news. I talked with them very freely about the meeting between Gen I'emberton and m)self, our corre I spondence, etc. But In no sense vv as it a j council of war. I was very glad to give the garrison of Vicksburg the terms I did. There was a cartel in existence ut that time which requested either party to ex change or parole ail prisoners either at Vicksburg or at a tiolut on the James river within ten da)s after capture or as soon thereafter as practicable. This w oultl hav e Used all the trunsjiort atiun vv e had for a month The men had behav ed so well that I did not want to humiliate them.

' One source of sudden deuthj is accidents, but many events uss under the head of accidents which might have been foreseen , mid guarded against. Americans, articu larly, are apt to take great risks; for ex ample, in theircating, their clothing, their building, in crossing railway tracks, and in many other wn)s. No staging need ev er fall, and it would net if proper care I were taken in the choice of material and in construction. Think of the frightful list of deaths resulting from the use of oil jiourcd upon a lighted fire to cause it to kindle more qilicklyt With many other causes of sudden 1 death, our own personal ills seem at first sight to hav e almost nothing to do. There may lie n fatal break iti the ph) steal ma chinery at a point w here weakness has not been suspected. The heart, perhaps, be comes unnaturally enlarged, or its tough, muscular fiber turns to fat, and sudden!) there is a mortal rupture. Or the en feeblest heart fails to send blood to tho brain, and the man drops dead in the street, or at his business, or, more fortu nately perhaps. In the midst of his family. In other cases there may be a degenern- I tion of tho cerebral artery," and high liv ing, or a glass of w ine, or an excite ment of passion, may arouse the heart to send the blood to the bruin with a force I too great for the weakened arterial walls to withstand. These walls give way at one or more jioints, the outiwured blood presses against the nerve centers, and thus is cut off the necessary supply of nerve force to vital organs The man falls unconscious, and within a few days dies. . Wo hav e not space to speak of other causes somewhat similar, but in most of them the weakness of the link at which the chain breaks is duo to over exertion, to too continuous brain work, to excesses in eating and drinking, to passion, to ' worry The weak sjot beiu ascertained, the fatal result may lie prevented for )ears, perhaps indefinitely by a carefully regulated life. Youth's Companion. Fine Fibers of Class. By the method adopted by Mr. C. V. Bovs, the British ph)sicist, glass rods are quickly drawn Into very tine fibers by straw arrows shot from a cross bow. One end of the rod is attached to the arrow and the other is held in the lingers, the required temperature being given the cen ter of the rod lieforo the bow is released. Glass is thus extended into fibers less than one ten thousandth of an inch in diameter, and quartz into threads below one hundred thousandth of an inch In thickness which is less than one-third as thick as the spider's vv eb, and only one-twentieth as thick ns the silkworm's liber. Tho process is also quite successful vv it h aug ite, feldspar and other minerals, garnet yielding threads of most beautiful colors w hen treated at a low temperature. At the reading of his recent most interesting taper concerning these tine libers, Mr. Uo)s exhibited to the Indon Physical society an annealed glass spiral capable of quite accurately weighing the millionth of a grain.

Twenty or more ladies and gentlemen, enough clay pipes so each will have one, three or four bowls of soap-suds, and, say, half a dozen trifles, for prizes, are all that is required, the prizes to be awarded to those who blow the largest bubbles, one of the party to act as referee. The suds should be of Ivory Soap, as it gives a clean, white, and abundant lather, with an entire freedom from oil or grease; and as the materials of which it is made are so clean and pure, it is not at all offensive to the smell or taste, like ordinary soap. A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be " just as good as the ' Ivory ;" they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it. Copyright lssC, by Inicter X ddmble M.AJiSHALL Sc CO., pnopniwTon. mr vVrmi i a i IkinnvPsa! P 10 W.HIGH ST. -- I HOME TOWEL SUPPLY CO.
