Last month I thought more out of friend ship than anything else that I would buy a dollar ticket. I did so and won 10. This month I invested the 10 in two one-quarter tickets, one of which as you already know, has drawn 12, 600." Mr. Stadler took his ticket to bis friend, Manager Hoey, of the Adams Express Company, for collection. Yes terday be received the money all right and generously drew his check for a handsome sum in favor of the old gen tlemen that sold him the ticket, and promised to make him a present of 100,- 000 if be draws tbo capital prize of 1300,000. , A feature in recent drawings has been the good fortune that has attended the customers of the Louisiana State Lot tery in this city and vicinity. Not long since two Brooklyn plasterers had the good fortune to draw 115,000 upon an investment of $1 each, they having agreed to go shares on what they won. There was E. Amsden, the printer at 137 8th Btreet., who drew 15,000, and Cassagnac & Vieu, the feather mer chants at 8 West 3rd st., who drew $2, 600, and the restaurant keeper on Bleecker st., who struck a big prize, and whose luck led most of these mentioned into going into the lottery.

Now, for in stance, the other day I overheard my small son call his little sister a 'chippy.' 1 reproved him for so doin;, when he answered, 'AH boys is kids, and all girls is chippies,' as though wondering at my ignorance of the current vernacular. When I awoke the other morning I found the boy wide awake in his crib be side the bed. As I turned to look at him he saw that my eyes were open, and he said to me: Pa, I've got a new one for you,' Of course, I naturally expressed a desire to hear it. nesting himself upon one elbow, he looked me square in the face and recited this: " A big bull pup with a curled up tail, A very small boy with a big tin pail: They tried thin scheme, but it would not do, And they buried the boy where the daises grew.' "Well, of course, I howled. If I had ever had the nerve to spring such an epic on my own father when I was his age I would have been obliged to stand up to my meal's for a week. It only goes to show the precocity of the youth of the preseut day." The Value of a Home. A city which has the largest share ot individual home owners has the smallest share of dangerous classes. A man who owns a home, or who is successfully trying to own a home, can never be turned into an Ishmaelite, a Bohemian or an anarchist In struggling against the tenement house system, and in strug gling for a home, heroes are made out of common clay. No man can rent a home. Let every means which business enterprise can devise to further home owning be encouraged. There was never an age nor a day when it was truer than now that "There's no place like home." Lewiston, Me., Journal, An Injured Veteran, Journalist I would like to get a pen sion.

"Yes, mother," said young Bushy Tall, "I know just how you feel. It nt I've begun to prowl about; I've really learned to steal. The Rabbit runs, the Partridge flies, The Chicken-roosts are high, But I shall wait a chance to pounce; I shall be very sly. -I mean to live upon my wits; I shall be very shy." :i So off they bolb together went And left their den of rocks; And which one of tbe two was worse, The big or little Fox? Jiminy Joyce's Philanthropy, Little Jimmie Joyce has shown a great interest in the Fresh-Air fund ever since it began to be talked about this season. As it happened, last week some of his friends were sent away by means of the fund, and their brilliant accounts of country life set Jimmie's young mind to work. The lad does a good deal of thinking- anyway, for one so young, and this time his active mind hit upon something which seemed to jiiiti very practical. Accordingly, Wednesday morning, when he went to the Daily News boys' room in the rear of the Daily News building, he marched up to Philip O'Connor, the veteran pa- per-uistriDutor, and hem a ten minutes conversation with him. "It strikes me that we fellers might take up a kinder collection," he said, "and we might send some one to the country, too." Phil fell in with the idea, ana, when all the boys came in, before giving them their papers, he made the following, announcement: "Boys, some of the fellows wants to start a subscription among you for the Surpose of sending some of the poor to le country. Now, what do you think I 1W" , . "That's the stuff," "Let 'er go," and a score of like exclamations were given by the boys in answer. So it was that the Daily News boys' fund was started. Jimmie Joyce's name headed the list with 10 cents after it, and by night many names were added and $5.55 was raised, Thursday $1.75 was added to the list, and yesterday 87 cents was handed in by "Shorty," who had spent the previous afternoon on the north side collecting it from the boys. The fund had now grown to $8.17, enough money to send four "kids" to the country for a two weeks' vacation. It now became necessary to appoint a committee to see that the money was disposed of properly and that the right persons were benefited by it Accord ingly, a meeting was held and all the boys attended, regardless of the papers iney mignt nave torn. The alley, through which the little fellows come to get their papers was thronged, Tom Black acted as a chairman and "Reddie" introduced a motion that a committee of four be appointed to attend to the proper disposal oi tne money, The mo tion was carried and Frank Eohlhoff. better known as "Yorkie," James Cot ton, Frank Bremer, and Frank Shultz were appointed. . Now comes a question not easily j . iitrl- . i. 1 1 ,m ueciueu; w no snau we senar "I think 'bout as good as we could do would be to send four poor boys," suggested "Bricktop" John. "No; better send poor girls," said another. "What's the matter with haff and bafT?" asked Bob Jackson. An hour was spent discussing this question, nut no agreement could be reached, so the boys referred it to the committee they had selected, "Yorkie" then proposed that the persons sent to the country by them be called the Daily News boysr boys," or "girls," as the case might be, or both, for that matter, and the motion was unanimously carried. The committee lost no time in dis posing of the duties intrusted to him, and met immediately after the other meeting had adjourned: "Yorkie" acted as spokesman, and re garding the question as to who was to be sent to the country said: "Fellers, I tink we'd belter take the gals out, 'cause yer know they don't nohow git to see much any way. Yer know we kin take the car and go off fer a day list when we wants, but they can't do it It's my opini'n we'd better tend 'em off. What der yer think 'bout itT" "Yorkie't" eloquence was not lost upon the other three, and they finally decided that "the Daily Newt boys' girls" should go for the proposed vacation. The boys then visited the manage ment of the Daily Newt Fresh-Air Fund, and requested four deserving flrls be tent on the newsboys' account he rtfquoet was promptly aooeded to, and four girls will be elected to go to Williamsport, inn., in answer to in vitations from Mrs. R. M. Olaypool and Mrs. Sllfer of that tows, both of whom had previously tent word to the benevolent organisation that they would gladly entertain two young girls during the two weeks' vocation.

Ob the Wide, fcarraa ntaia eauTh f the Yukon Month there once lived a lit tle boy with bis annt They were all aloae. not even-having, any people liv- awue mem in any airecuon to tar a tbey could travel in a day. One sum mer day the boy took his skin canoe, or tyak, and told his aunt that he was go ing away to the Great River (Yukon) to uen people were living. Then away he paddled and came in time to the Great River, up which be steered his course until be came at last to a large village. . . As tbe boy drew his kyak upon the shore tbe people ran down to bim aad smashed his canoe to pieces and then tore bis clothing into rags and beat him almost to death. And here the poor boy, having no kyak, was compelled to stay all through the summer, Ihe object of the spiteful blows and harsh treat ment of the entire village. As tbe autumn moon tilled, one of the men in the village felt pity for the friendless one and made him a little kyak and told him to go and Und his peo ple again. Then the boy paddled away again, and after a long time returned to his aunt's place. When he reached home he was sur prised to find that many people bad come there during his absence and a vil lage now stood about his old borne. Then he drew his kyak upon the rivet bank and went straight to his aunt's house and entered. The old woman was inside, and when the poor boy went in, all ragged and so starved and beaten that he looked like a skeleton, she was very much frightened. When the old aunt's fright passed away she was able to recognize him, and with cries of pity for his suffering and of anger at his cruel enemies, she heard his story. When he had finished, the old woman made him bring her a piece of driftwood, and from it they carved a small wooden image of an an imal with long teeth, and long, sharp claws; and they colored it on the sides, with some white on its neck. Then they took the image to the edge of the water in the little river and the old woman said her magio words to the imnge and told it to go to the place where the bad ones lived who had treated her boy so evilly, and to tear and destroy all the people he could And. The image lay quite still, not etirring. At this the old woman took it out of the water and let her tears drop on its back, while she told it: "Now, go! Kill and tear the bad ones who beat my boy," and put it into the water again. Just when she finished, the imuge moved slowly across the river ami crept up the other bank. By the time it reached the top ot the bunk it had grown to a big animal, and turn ed and looked back at the old woman, who cried out to it: "Qo, tear ana destroy." The animal went away to the bad village, where it found a man getting water from the river, and quickly tore him in pieces. After this, foi a long time, the savage one kept about this place until half of the people had been torn by him and all of the others began to desert it. The savage one then swam across the Great River and wandered far across the earth plain, even beyond the broad river, always raging to destroy everything in which it found life. Here it turned back, and one day came upon the river bank where it had started. He looked, and seeing the people, became at once filled with rage and began to tear up the earth with his sharp claws, and then swam the little river. The villagers ran away crying with fear: "There is the old woman't dog, and now we will all be eaten. Make the old woman go and stop her dog." The old woman heard the cries and went Out, and as soon as she saw the animal she went to meet it The savage one was passing by without trying to touch her, but she caught it by the long fur and said: "Do not hurt these people for they have been good to me and have given me food when I have been Hungry." At this the savage one be came quite gentle and she led it into her house. When thsv were inside she told the animal that he had served her well und done all of her bidding, but that from this time forth he must not hurt people unless they first tried to injure or abuse him in anv wav. She then led it outside and sent him away, and since then there nave always been bears. The Highest Volcano. The highest active volcano in the world is Popocatapetl, thirty-five miles south of Pueblo, Old Mexico. It is 17, 784 feet high, the crater is three miles in circumference and l.uuu leet deep. When Cortez conquered Mexico Popo catapetl was in a state of active erup tion, the smoke being visiuie lor auu miles in every direction. One of Cortez's men, Francisco Mon tano, was the first man to ascend to the summit Up to 1875 but two white women, Mrs. John W. Foster and Mrs, Arthur Terry, had ever gazed into the awful crater. Since that time several lady tourists have made the ascent The figures of General Casper Ochor, the owner of the great smoking moun tain, show it to be 19,523 feet high; 17, 784, the figures given above, are those used by most geographers. The Biggest Town. London, with an area somewhat in definite, it the lamest city in the world. Her postal districts extend over a scope of 144 square miles; that of the police over 690 square miles. The population in 1881 was something over 4,000,000. It stands on four counties, covering the most of each. It tins 1.500.000 foreign ers from every quarter of the globe, and it is said to have more uatnoiics tnan Rome herself and more Jews than all Palestine. Within the limits of the city there is a birth every live minutes and a death every eight minutes, day and night Each year adds 45,000 to the population, mere are 7,uvu nines or streets and 1,200 miles ot street railway within the city limits. Each year an average of 28 miles of new streets are opened. ADogUkblt. It hat been remarked that dogs turn around several times before lying down.

But after all, bow delightful it is to converse with a man who makes hit quotation this way; you are instantly at home with him; yon feel that be doesn't know any more than you do; you know that at your worst you can do at well at he can.

Ex. Brains in Demand. "1 hear a good many young fel lows," said an old New York mer chant, recently, "growling nowadays that the chances to make a fortune in this city are all gone, that is, for men whose only capital is their brains. They look around at the great business houses already established' and con sider the tierce oompotition in every brunch of trade, and their hearts fail them. The truth is that there never were such chances to make money as now for young men of real ability in this city. It is a hard place, of course, for men of mere average talent to get along In, but brains are needed here as never before. Merchants who have built up great trades and want to 'let up' a little in their labors, must have smart men to whom they oan safely entrust details. "The complaint that the 'bosses' re latives are put over the heads ot the more deserving clerks is not true. That scheme is playing out and will not work. No wise man will risk his business in the hands of an incompe tent son or nephew if he can get a bet ter and more faithful employe to at tend to it It would pay him better to pension the relative. These men get salaries that were unheard of in my day, and although the prices of land have risen greatly since then, the op portunities for a young fellow to se cure a home of his own, were never better that they are in New York to day. New xorH Tribune. A Man of Expedients. Of all the dispositions with, which moral man may be born, there is no other that on the whole it so likely to assist him to make his way through life satisfactorily as that ot being born a man of expedients. Whatever gift of wealth one may chance to inherit he is sure sooner or later to come, to grief, unless he inherits also the art of managing them. It is by no meant enough to get a fortune; it It neces sary to use one's wits to preserve It But fortune is, after all, only on of the Innumerable elements of which life it compounded, and as it become! every year necessary to have a large fortune to hold one's own among the wealthy of the land, to does It beoome every year of less Importance whether one does have a fortune, tlnoe there) It constantly a larger proportion ot peo ple who do, not have the enormous amount which goet to make up tho modern fortune, and the majority will assert itself, even to the extent of breaking away from the domination of wealth.

BlackweU, Chicago Times. When Robert Was a Boy. John W. Burdetto, for many years editorial writer and business manager of the Burlington Hawkeye, is a younger brother of the famous humor ist He says: "Bob always bubbled over with fun, and his stock ot stories was exhaustless, even when a child. He could make us a good fairy tale or adventure at a moments notice, and his younger brothers wei-e always after him for 'just one more story, Bob,' whenever we got him alone. At bed-time we were especially annoying to him. After we' were all cuddled up for we slept three In a bed Bob would tell us a tcore of stories, and we constantly begged for one more until he would become weary. I guess that some of Bob's best stories wore told to us In those days. I would not like to say a thousand times (or fear ot exag geration, and if I said less than a thousand times it might not be up to tho number of occasions when Bob was obliged to kick us both out of bad and roll himself up 4n the blankets and go to sleep in spite ot us, for we never tired ot hearing him, no mutter how sleepy and tired he might become. Yes, if one-hundredth part of the fanoies, witticisms and inventions which Bob entertained his little brothers with could be print ed, the world would call him n genius of the most marvelous kind; for the thousand tales of the Arabian Nights were never more interesting than those winter nights' tales of my good brother Bob. There was never a bet ter brother." Clean Milk. When we look upon the boautiful whiteness of milk we are led to believe it is absolutely clean. It seems so natural to believe that anything so white and pure-looking must be clean. When we remember, however, that water that seems perfectly clear and sparkling to the naked eye may con tain the worst impurities, we are pre pared to hear and understand that ap parently .clean white milk may be im pure. We recently had exhibited to us the residuum cleaned out of ap parently pure milk by un ingenious system of centrifugal cleansing em ployed by one of our condensed milk companies. This residuum consists ol blood, putrescent matter, hair, duet and other impurities taken from the bottom of one of these centrifugal cleansers. The question suggests itself, may not the continued use of milk con taining such impurities be the source ot typhoid and other fevers just ae much as Impure water? And if this is so, why should not the same prophy lactic care be exercised In cleansing milk as in distilling water? Here is a fresh apportunity for microscopical and bacteriological investigation, tc which we shall again refer, Ameri can Anatyco. Color of the Hair and Eyes. M. Toplnard has been making a statistical inquiry into the colors of the eyes and hair in France, and from his 180,000 observations he deduces many interesting results, one of the most cu rious being that where tbe race is formed from a mixture of blondes and brunette! the hereditary blood-coloring comes out in the eyes, and the brunette element reappears in the hair. To thlt tendency probably is to be attributed the rarity of a combina tion ot light hair with dark eyes. Sev eral observers have asserted that the American people, who are pre-eml nently a mixed race, are becoming a dark-haired and blue-eyed nation, and It this be true, tuch a development must be owing to the working o) the new law formulated by M. Topl nard. Both Going to Dinner. Business man "I had two urgent engagements to make to-day, one with an Englishman and one with an Ameri can." Friend "Yes."

He did not ask for pardon, but sail in tin letter that he had reduced bis term from seven to five years by good behavior. A lady who waa with Mrs. Harrison in Iodianapolis at the time wrote acknowledging the letter, and later sent a letter asking the prison authorities about John F. Elliott's character. The chaplain, William H.

I hope he may be panioned be fore the expiration of his sentence." Mrs. Harrison became interested in the case, as everything pointed to the fact Elliott was trying to reform. Reason ing that his sentence would expire in November and a pardon two or three months before his time would give him once more a fair standing before the world, she sent copies of the letters in her possession to Senator Stanford, to gether with a request for him to look into the case.
