Two Sizes— cents and $1.00 SCOTT & BOWNE, - New York WILD HORSE JERRY. An Int i* row I inn Western Charac ter Who Defied .< Storm. Buffalo Express. "The most interesting character I ever knew 1 me' last summer In Gree ley, Weld county. C 01.." said W. C. Boerner, of Denver, to an Express re porter. "He has caught more wild horses In his day than any other man living. His real name is Jeremiah Smith, but everybody around Greeley knows him as Wild Horse Jerry. He has a little ranch down on the Banks of the Platte about ten miles east of the town, and it was there 1 met him. 1 was riding from Lovelands to Ster ling. I stopped at Jerry's house for the night, and that evening, before we turned Into bed, he told me something about his experiences. He is <<uite an old man now. but he is still very active, and can ride 103 miles In a day easily enough. •'lt was over thirty years ago that he started out as a wild horse catcher. Since that time he has caught over 1,000 horses, and he has broken every one of them to the saddle. He has ridden for three days and nights stead ily after some particularly wary band of horse stopping only to change horses. It takes a man with an iron constitution to do that, and he is one of the most powerful men in the coun ty. He is under medium height, but the muscles stand out all over his body. "Once, he told me, he was far out on the plains in midwinter with a young German. They were miles away from any ranch, when they were caught ii: a snow storm. The only thing to do when a storm like that strikes you way down below zero, is to roll your self in your blankets and lie down and wait until the storm is over and the weather gets warmer. That's what they did. The snow piled over them and kept them warm, but they knew it would be as much as their lives were •worth to get up and try to continue their journey. The snow came down so thick and fast they couldn't see a foot ahead of them. They couldn't see their horses; they couldn't see each other. Jerry held his hand out before his face, but the snow hid it from his sight. He had to hold it close to his eyes before he could see it. Hour after hour passed by, and. the storm still kept on. Finally, after they had lain there six hours, the German said he was going to run the risk of getting up and looking about. He thought he might be able to find a ranch some where near. "In spite of Jerry's remonstrances the man started off. Jerry lay there all through the day and night, and in the morning the storm passed away. Jerry started out to look for him, and only a few rods from where he had been lying he found his dead body. The wind had been blowing such a gale that even If he called for help Jerry would not have heard him. "Jerry would be a rich man today if he had let whisky, alone. He made tens of thousands of dollars out of his horses, but he spent it all in Cheyenne saloons. There is only one band of wild horses left in the state now, and Jerry has made half a dozen Unsuc cessful attempts to catch them. . They wander about in the northwest Corner of the state, and are very often seen by men on the Seven Cross ranch, near Grover. Jerry has chased them for hundreds of miles, but they have al ways eluded him." CUT TO THE QUICK FOR THE QUICK. Maple Leaf Route the Fastest. The Chicago Great Western Railway (Maple Leaf Route) now gets the preferred passenger business to and from Kan.-vs City and points between because of its quick time and superior service.

Petersburg the average yearly death:- are from 2,503 to 3,000 in ex cess of the births in a population of nearly a million. In the years from 38<58 to ISS2 the death rate varied from li9.T per thousand to 38.6, while the b'rtliS were only 31.1 per thousand. In 1883 "5,171 children were born alive, while there were 30,150 deaths, an ex cess in this year of about 5,000. But the'ic figures are opt to be misleading. The workmen who come up to the cap itil almo<?*. Invariably leave their wives ar.d children in the provinces. Thus, many births take place in the provinces which are riot reckoned to the account cf the capital. The fact that about "i per cent of the population are over sixteen years of age testifies to the universality of the practice of leaving ;1,-s children in the country. The same fact is demonstrated by the presence of twelve men to every ten women in. St. Petersburg, whereas in most '.owns this proportion Is exactly rever.-od. . It will thus be seen that though the deaths are in ex cess of the births, there is not likely to be any diminution in the actual pop ulation of the town. In fact, its pop ulation increased 29 per cent between IB6S and 18SL Hadn't Arrived Yet. Truth. A. 1) T. Boy 197— Las' night I dream ed I wus In heaven. A. I>. T.

DISPROOFS ARE FREQUENT, Hut He Goi-N gilt on levin-*. The in. us 11" They Were Truths. Every human being has his pet superstition. It came to him almost in the cradle, and has remained with him. by a strange pertinacity, all his life, says the New York Times. Man is too proud to admit a governing Influence which has no real founda tion and must fall to pieces when its stability is tested, but no matter how silly 'a superstition may be, once imbedded in memory by a sin gle instance when it came true, all its signal failures will generally fail to loosen its grip upon the human being who has been taught it in child hood. A pet superstition will lose not a jot of its influence should it fail every time in a hundred, pro vided it proves true in one instance only. This fact shows how men are joined to their superstitious idols.. "Sing before breakfast, cry before night," is the most .ridiculous of all old bogies, and the most destructive of mirth, laughter and happiness. It is not difficult to prove its fallacy. Let every man, woman and child stand up against it, sing, howl, if they cannot give forth melodious sounds, laugh merrily, and rejoice at the coming of day, like the birds, whose first thought upon waking on the appearance of the first streak of dawn is to sing happily with pure joy for the return of another day. Let each be as happy as the birds, and make everybody else happy, and thus will this detestible superstition retire to the gloom of its inception and be heard of no more. There is an old superstition* that the left limbs should always be dressed first, but not completely at one time. Suppose that the man who manifests his indignation at the as sertion that he is superstitious com mences, cautiously, as it were, with out letting himself know that he is being watched, with the first gar ment he puts on in the morning, and learn what is the result. How sur prised he will be to know, perhaps for the first time, 'that his left arm goes into his shirt first, his left leg in his trousers first, and bis left sock on his left foot 'first, to. say nothing of continuing the observa tion as far as the shoe. There are men who will change a garment which has been put on, unconscious ly, inside out, but there are many men who will not, for their lives, risk the old superstition concerning such an act. Kings have not dared it. . .- ,■■-■■. ■[■ <r. ■-. .** ... ".- Where is the man or boy who, sav ing only in a spirit of bravado, will knowingly walk under a ladder? Even if done in a spirit of definace of the old bogie, how expectantly and sometimes tremblingly he awaits the coming of the penalty. Try it, man, and if the penalty of sorrow or loss, disappointment or accident, does not result before the day has swept by you will not 'tell of it. If it comes to you, the rule will be followed, and you will never cease telling of it, this rare occurrence. When a man returns to the house after once starting out, having, per haps, forgotten to kiss his wife, or something less important, his natural inclination, without special prompt ing, is to sit down before starting again. It is said to be bad luck to omit this. Even death may result if a human being should raise an open umbrella over his head within doors, it is said. Umbrella makers have been known to observe this religiously. People who live in the country must be careful not to have around their homes a white-nosed cow, for, should the window be open and this cow with the white proboscis reach it over the window sill in search of information or something dainty, there will be a death in the family before long. So says the old saw. Why must we give a penny for any sharp instrument presented by a friend? Why do we seek a four leaved clover, and why must- we pick up a dirty horseshoe from the street whenever we see' it there? Why do men nail the horseshoe over their doors, and ends down, too, when the original superstition, of which they seem to be in ignorance, asserts that it should be nailed up the other way, so as to catch within its em brace the luck which descends? There is no longer any use of talk ing about the old bogie concerning one of thirteen sitting at table dying within a year after the feast, for the Thirteen club exploded that fool ish old saw by sitting thus -month in and month out many years, many tables with thirteen at each, and all lived out the dangerous year and more years added, but there are still living men who would not un dertake a journey on. Friday, al though, after coming to sum the mat ter up, multitudes of men have dis covered that Friday, of all days in the week, is the most fortunate day for everything. And it is rarely now that a criminal is executed on Fri day in any part of the world, thanks to that Thirteen club, who laugh at superstition, knife and fork in hand. Yet there is not one of them who has not his pet superstition, either consciously or otherwise. The big gest man in the club carries a horse chestnut In his pocket to ward, off rheumatism, and another is a spirit ualist. They all put on the left sock first, and few of them dare sing be fore breakfast. But they are de serving of great praise for what they have done and must not weary in well-doing. When a valuable vase in the Tuil leries fell to the floor and was shat tered a short time before the great battle of Waterloo, Josephine prophe sied disaster would follow— and it did. Napoleon me.t his fate there, but his "Book of Fate" never told him defeat was near and disaster hovering over him. But this was the first vase broken by many, in the Tuilleries.

' "■■■' It is the negro who Is the most su perstitious being on earth, Superstition rules his every action, and leads him to the performance of the most, ridic ulous things. His. pet superstitions are the hoodoo and the ghost. In both of these he believes as implicitly as he does in a God. The heart, torn out of a living chicken, the tongue of a liv ing frog, a dead man's linger, a silt from a growing ash tree, or the blood of a murdered man, as well as a. few other such things, and a midnight walk of a mile or more, clad only in his night shirt, may serve, in his imagina tion, to quell the hoodoo, but the ghost can never be laid until its own purpose' is completely served. Some years ago there was an elegant mansion in the outskirts of New Orleans which had been occupied by a strong-minded old woman, who owned, together with .the mansion and grounds, a number of slaves. It was said! of this woman that she was accustomed to chain one and another in several rooms of this man sion and beat them terribly, some times even to death. When this hor rible woman died, and ever after, the negroes round about swore that un earthly groans and the rattling of chains were heard nightly "coming from the ghosts of her victims within the house. Consequently, the house re mained untenanted, although the sur rounding round was sold, and the man rounding ground was sold, and the man sion was. valued at $75,000. One day an enterprising Yankee pur chased it for some $3,000, and, after slight preparation, threw open the doors for the admission of the public at so much per head. The "Chamber of Hor rors," and so on, were timorously in spected by the multitude for many months, and the enterprising man from down East retired from the showman's profession with a fortune and the title deed of the house. But the ghosts were too sensible to disgrace themselves to the extent of being shown up for a mere song of admission fee, and were laid then and there, much to the satis faction of the "cullud gentleman." It is human- nature to see in others what we fail to see in ourselves. A very apt caution is sometimes met with, which is, "Man, know thyself!" If every man will watch himself atten tively he will find that more than a sin. gle superstition will, to his utter as tonishment, perhaps, crop out now and again. It is worth trying, just for the fun of the thing and to satisfy a com mendable curiosity. • MADE "HAPPY. His Hobby of Keeping Cl i piling--* Leads to the Recovery of a Diamond, Philadelphia Times. The old adage, "Truth is stranger than fiction," received another exemp lification here a few days ago. Som? three years since a young physician named Pollard, residing in Nashville, Term., was a passenger on a Texas and Pacific train coming from El Paso. Between Ft. Worth and Marshall he discovered the loss of a valuable dia mond, which formed the setting of his scarfpin. A vigorous search was in stituted, but without result, and the loss was advertised in the Marshall papers, a large reward being offered for the recovery of the stone. Several days ago an employe of the car shops, while overhauling a coach which had been run in for repairs, came across a large diamond firmly Wedged in between the cushions of one of the seats. Now it happens that this man, Hagan by name, has a little crip pled son who has a passion for every thing connected with his father's busi ness, and who is in the habit of clip- . ping out of the newspapers notices or advertisements relative to railroad af fairs, and pasting them into an old scrap book. When Mr. Hagan spoke of his find his little boy seemed struck with an idea, and asking for his scrap book he began turning over the leaves. Presently he showed his father Dr. Pollard's advertisement of three years ago. The doctor was communicated with, the diamond was identified by fit ting it into its old setting and the little cripple was made happy by a handsome reward. mm To California Without Change -via "The Milwaukee."

Important buying for London is not looked for in the imme diate future, as the short interest at that center has been practically elim inated and Investors are deterred from this market by misgivings as to our currency outlook. The features of to day's local trading were the purchases by large houses with Washington con nections, duo to expectations of an Im pending issue of government bonds on a basis satisfactory to the treasury department and the gratifying results of the timely action of the clearing house committee in preventing dis tressing rates for money. Although, some call loans were made at 9 per cent, the bulk of the business was done at ii per cent, and transactions were made on good mixed stock - exchange collateral at. s per cent. The market proved superior to a sharp rise in the sterling exchange market, partly owing to the great dis parity betweeen the amount of the actual engagements of gold for ship ment tomorrow and the previous ex traordinary estimates. It was attempt ed to be explained that the exports would have been much larger but for the difficulty experienced by would-be shippers of the yellow metal in se curing legal tenders. This condition prevailed to a moderate extent. As a matter of fact, foreign bankers are disinclined to sell exchange to a large amount where the gold is required to be shipped three or four days ahead, because, in the event of clearing house loan certificates being used, the banks where they deposit their checks would receive for their credit loan certificates instead of legal tender notes. The loan certificates ' could not be paid ' over to foreign bankers, and the banks would not be willing to pay in legal tenders out of their own stock, as their re serve would soon be exhausted. •' The market opened fairly active and firm and soon became generally strong, advances being recorded extending in some instances to- 3 per cent. About 11 o'clock reactions occurred on the sharp advance in actual and posted rates of exchanges. The losses were soon re covered, heavy purchases by the shorts turning the scale. The upward ten dency was thereafter maintained as a rule, the highest figures of the day being reached between 11 and 12 o'clock. The appreciations at the extreme point, as compared with last night's closing prices, are St. Paul & Omaha pre ferred and Wheeling & Lake Erie pre ferred, 4%; Tobacco, Rock Island and Consolidated Gas, 4*4; Delaware & Hudson, 4; Sugar. 3%; Bay State Gas,' 3%; j Chicago Gas and; lowa Central preferred, 3%; Denver & Rio Grande, 3%; St. Paul and C, C, C. & St. L., 3%; Hocking Valley, 3%; ■ Canada Southern, Lake Erie & Western pre ferred, Louisville & Nashville and Lead preferred, 2%; Northwest, 2%; Bur lington, Missouri Pacific, Southern pre ferred and Tennessee Coal, 2\' , and Kansas & Texas preferred, and New Jersey Central, 2*4 per cent.

Around delivery hour there was a disposition on the part of the traders to take profits on the advance and a sharp slump resulted, in which the grangers, Manhattan, Chicago Gas, Tobacco and C, C, C. & St. Louis were most conspicuous. The pressure was soon over and the upward ten dency was resumed, the market clos ing stronger. The appearance of heavy purchasing orders, for Investment caused a sharp advance in the railroad and miscella neous bond market throughout the day. The transactions footed up $2, --376,000.

NEW YORK, Dec. 24.— The Evening Post's financial cablegram from Lon don says: "There was a further mark ed improvement in American shares today on telegrams reporting calmer and more friendly utterances from President Cleveland. The recovery was due to re-purchases and a few speculative orders. The closing was nearly at the best. I understand that financiers in Germany were sounded yesterday as to terms of an American coin and bond loan. The dearness of money there, to say nothing else, is against it. All the markets here clos ed better, in sympathy with the recov ery in Americans and foreigners." Bujtter at New York. NEW YORK, Dec.

MADE RESTITUTION. Awkward Mistake of an Innocent Little Sunday School Scholar. Buffalo Express. Martha is four years old and has just begun her religious education in the Infant class of an uptown Sunday school. It is the custom of the teacher in this particular Infant class to give each of her small pupils a card con taining a short text which the child is expected to memorize during the week. In passing them out she charged each of the children to be sure and keep them carefully and return them the next Sunday, that they might be passed on to the others. Martha is not a very careful little girl, and, though fully Impressed with the duty of re turning the card, she neglected to put it in a place of safety, and even before she reached home she discovered that she had lost It. The thought worvfed her considerably at first until a bright idea came into her head, and, strange to relate, it stayed there all the week. She said nothing to her mother about the lost card, and the next Sunday went off to Sunday school happy ns usual. The lost card was not troubling her innocent little conscience. The in fant class assembled and the teacher called on the children to return (heir cards. When it came Martha's turn she arose and said timidly: '".'air. sor ry, but I lost my card before I got home. I have brought you i.tie of my own, which papa gave me to play with. It is much bigger and prettier than the one I lost," and she placed it •vitri the rest. : v' r -;:■; The young woman who was teaching the infant class stared in mute aston ishment, while several unregenei-.vte adults in different parts of the class room bit their lips to keep from laugh ing. The card which little Martha ten dered was a somewhat dilapidated queen of hearts. .. . Wanted to Be Sure. Judge. * ;'■-■•- .*'.• "Well, sir," said the physician, after examining his patient, "you have a very serious complaint, but I cure It In two cases out of five." "But, doctor," replied the sick man. "have you lost the two out of the class I'd go in?" .:-':* Time Broken to Kansas City. The Chicago Great Western Railway (Maple Leaf Route) again scores a lead.
