"You see that woman over there
vgith a blue bow on?"
"Well, she says that no woman
with a red nose can buy anything at

The,Perils or a Npw.YpRK Police
man. —The perils encountered by the
New York police while on ,their- daily
rounds are shown „ by the record of
the past ten .years.. Daring that time
sixteen policemen h*ve been killed ; in
thé discharge of their duty, thirteen of
vÿom were shot, stabbed or beaten to
ath. by desperadoes. Three-hun
dred others were crippled for life or
disabled while on duty, and two hun
dred widows and orphans have been
placed on the pension list These
facts show.the dark side of a police
man's life^eukhtbe importance of pro
tecting these guardians of the peace,
attwelPas the public, by such a Com
mission as has been found to work so
well in New York.
A Legend of the Tinnbhs. —The Tin
neh, thatgreat people stretchinguortli
of the fifty-fifth parallel nearly to the
Arctic Ocean and to the Pacific, do
not seem in any of their various tribes
to have a single expressed idea with
regard to a supreme power. The
Loucheux branch recognize a certain
personage, resident in the moon, whom
they supplicate for success in starting
on a hunting expedition. This being
once lived among them as a poor rag
ged boy that an old woman had found
and was bringing up; and who made
himself ridiculous to his fellows by
making a pair of* very large snow
shoes; for the people could not see
what a starveling like him should want
with shoes of such unusual size. Times
of great scarcity troubled the hunters,
and they would often have fared badly
bad they not invariably on such occa
sions come across a now broad trail
that led to a head or two of fresh kill
ed game. They were glad enough to
get the game and without scruples as
to its appropriation; still they felt cu
rious as to wlience it came and how.
Suspicion at last pointing to the boy
and his groat shoes, as being in some
way implicated in the affair, he was
watched. It soon became evident that
ho was indeed the benefactor of the
Loucheux, and the secret hunter whose
quarry had so often replenished their
empty pots; yet the people were far
from being adequately grateful, and
continued to treat him with little kind
ness or respect. On one occasion they
refused him a certain piece of fat—
him who had so often saved their lives!

He returned to them in a month,.
however, appearing as a man au»i
dressed as a man. He told them that
he had taken up his home in the moon;
that he would always look down with
a kitally eye to their success in hunt
ings Wt he added, that as a punish

Quite a number of fast? Inrses are
arriving from the outside), and lively
times are expected in tuof circles here
this season.
Pony Young arrived from Boise City*
last evening with his famous four^year
old sorrel stallion, "Arnit," and his
three-year old hay mare, "Rose Mans
field." Both of them are thorough
bred race horses, recently import*
cd from Kentucky.
We understand that Mr. Young is
willing to match "Amit" against "Hum
boldt," and the owners of the latter
will undoubtedly accommodate him.
Opinions vary as to which of these
horses would come off victorien* in
a contest.
"Rose Mansfield" is a fine looking
animal and has, what expert* term,
some excellent points.
Charley Brooks arrived this morn
ing from Jordan valley, with "Hum
bolt" and the "Wright Colt" Hum
boldt is in splendid condition, and we
understand that his owners offer to
match him against any horse in the
world fbr a quarter or half-mile race.
Those who pretend to be posted say
that the *Wright Colt" will make a
much better* race this season than he
did last. Ifeianpw owned by Charley
Captain Sam Fly has also corns to

he calls "Flora T$ipple. w ' She is a

Old Maids.— There was a time when,
"old maids* were looked upon with an
eye of pity, if not contempt, and it
was thought that marriage alone gave
woman any claim to consideration. Of
late years, however, there has been a
change of opinioii in this respect, and
unmarried women not only rank as
high in general estimation as their
married sisters, hut bid fair soon to
surpass them. Nor is this to be won
dered at. A very few years ago it was
a rare chance to see a married vv oinan
dancing at any ball given in the Lon
don season, whereas now wives dance
with greater pertinacity than their sis
ters and daughters, and balls are e\ en
given expressly for married women.
The character of the British matron
has, in fact, completely changed; in
stead of being grave and decorous,
she has become a hopping, skipping
creature, delighting every one by her
grace and activity, but at the same
time losing in weight, moral as well as
physical, what she gains in enjoyment.
In the meantime the spinster is rapidly
rising—scorning tlirtatiou, she leaves
vain pursuits to the wife and mother.
The Emperor of China has set a good
example in the encouragement of spin
sters. According to a Shanghai jour
nal, he has just decreed that special
honors Ik* paid to two old maids, one
of whom lately diedk alter a life of de
votion to the memory of her betrothed;
while the other, who is still living, de
clined in her youthful days to make a
most tempting match, on the ground
that she could not leave her home.
Some few old maids in England have
. . .
au #uual claim to recognition of their
# , .
rmt«fits, and it would both elevate and
,nt •
appease them if they were in like man
ner rewarded.
The Will. —Men often speak of
breaking the will of a child; but it
seems to roe that they better break the
neck. The will needs regulation, not
destroying. 1 should as st*»n break
the legs of a horse in training him, as
a child's will. I would discipline and
develop it into harmonious pto|H»rtions.
I never yet heard of a will in itself
too strong, more than an ana too rnigli/
• ., ^ I** I
ty, or a mind too comprehensive in ir> '
grasp, and too powerful in its l»*ld.
The instruction of children should be
such as animate, inspire, strain, but
not to hew, cut and carve; for I would
always treat a child as a live tree,
which was to be helped to grow, never
as dry,, dead timber, to lie carved into
Ahis of that shape, and to have certain
mouldings, grooved upon it. A live
and not dead timber, is every little
child .—Theodore Parker.
Bovs of the Present Age. — A con
templative philosopher, whose heart is
in the right place, says: "Boys, did
you ever think that this world, with
all its wealth and woe, with all its
mines and mountains, oceans, seas and
rivers, with all its shipping, its steam
boats, railroads, and magnetic* tele
graphs, with all its millions of group*
ing men, and all the science and pro
gress of ages—will soon be given over
to boys of the present age—boys like
you? Believe it, and look abroad upon
your inheritance, and; get ready to en r
tcr up0Ili its possession. The presi
dents, kjngs, governors, statesmen,
philosophers, ministers, teaclicrs, men
of the future—all are boys now."
A shrewdish wife, being very ill,
called* her husband to come and sit by
her bedside. "This is a sail world,
my dear," said the wife plaintively.
"Werp iè not for you I should love to
quit* if* "Oh, my dear," eagerly re
sponded the husband, "how could you
think I would interfere with your hap
piness? Go, by a]$j*£aus!" The '
got well.
A Remarkable Bird Anecdote.— "The
myriads of birds that nestle in the

crippled sparrow recently fell to the
ground and fluttered about the sidé
walk in vain efforts to regain a place
of safety. Several of its little com
panions gathered around it; and
seemed greatly concerned for it, and
by their incessant chirping attracted
a swarm of the little-wingfid converts
from the church walls. Efforts were
then made by several of the number
to lift the helpless bird by catching
its wings in their beaks, but there
seemed to be a difficulty in getting
started together, and the effort was
futile, and then the chattering in
creased perceptibly, as if there was a
general scolding going on. Presently
several of the birds flew away, one
shortly returning with a twig about
four inches long and an eight of an
inch thick. Tin's was dropped before
the sick one, and each end was picked
up by a sparrow and help up so that
the sick bird wits enabled to catch
the center of the twig in its beak, and
with the aid of the other two it flew
over the fence into the churchyard,
and from tombstone to tombstone un
til the church was readied, when they
disappeared in the ivy, billowed all
along by the swarm of tlieir compan
ions, chirping as if in great joy. The
whole affair was viewed by several
spectators."—.V cw Rntnstrick (N. J.)
Criminal justice seems to l w huck
stered about at Washington like* com
mon merchandise. Juries are packet!
t«» order, presentments are pigeon-hol
ed. indictments neglected, and convic
tions set aside. The people have lost
confidence b» the courts, aad with
abundant seasons. The Dial riet At
torney biw neither ability, energy, nor
characteu to recommend him; and
since tlie pretended burglary of his
own office and the result of tlie trial of
his associate, lie is fallen into tlie ut
most disrepute and contempt. It is
easy, therefore, to understand why
Gen. Butler is pressing the trial of W.
S. King, indicted for perjury in con
nection with the Pacific Mail investi
gation. The object is to got a white
washing verdict, ami thus, if possible,
to save King from expulsion by the
House of Representatives next winter,

the example of Hinds, but be will not
find it of much value in l>ecember.—

A Suit to Navigate the Aul — Carl
Genzembergcr of Vienna, Austria,
writes to the Post Office Department
that he lias invented an apparatus
which can be used in directing the
course of air balooas, so as to obtain
a speed of ten miles (German) an
hour, which he thinks could be made
available for the forwarding of corres
pondence. He would have the appa
ratus constructed in New York, under
his supervision, by one of our engi
neers, and the trial trip made between
New York and San Francisco by him
telf and some one designated by the
department. The reward to be paid
ou his return from San Francisco. If
the department agrees to this he will
immediately send on his instructions.
