BESSEMER, - COLORADO. • It was nip and tuck between the baggage-smashers and the Zulu sav at Chicago, but of course the latter got only thp tuck. They were out-classed. Burglars broke into the house of the Bradloy-Martins at New York and stolo most of the bric-a-brae. There is. however, something for which to be grateful. They left the hyphen. I Ward McAllister wants a foisfrign mission. He might do well iu Africa, teaching manners to the monkeys, whoso conversational powers are be ing developed under tho coaching of Professor Gamier. The papers which hastened to give tho world an estimate of ex-President Gonzales of Mexico upon tho an nouncement of his death, will be pleased to learn ho isn’t dead nor likely to be for some time. The man who is “too well known to require any introduction to tho public” appears to bo quite numerous «>f late. Fortunately in every case the great public is too well known to require any introduction to him. The old Liberty bell made a noise in tho world once upon a time, but now it has no cause to do anything but take its otium cum dig. Wher ever it goes the people make tho air resound with glad acclamations. This country has showered honor and banquets upon tho duke of Vera gua, whoso remarkable achievement of having descended from Columbus makes him famous. It is not too much to say that the worthy duke’s prospects of carrying a case of dyspepsia back to Spain could not be brighter. A man* turned up at the Ilarlem station. Mount Vernon. N. Y.. the other day boaring a Harlem railway ticket dated 1860, and entitling him to ride from One Hundred and Twen ty-sixth street to Fordhum. He could easily have sold it at tho station for a good many times its original cost. Objection* is being raised by ladies against such street car conductors as chew tobacco. If the conductors will now complain of the passengers who chew gum ostentatiously, and each nuisance shall succeed in abating the other, the portion of the public that holds its collective jaw between meals will be glad. A farmer near San Bernardino was bitten by a rattle snake, and ap plied. so it is said, the usual remedy, lliat was six weeks ago. and no harm appeared to have been done. Now the farmer has taken to having fits when ho sees a snake. Six weeks steady application of tho remedy ha cvidently been too much for him. Since it has been announced that there are 1,000,00 ' square miles of (,'anada yet unexplored, the feeling in favor of annexation in thiseountrv has been growing. That patch of land is just about the right six..* for a reservation for our cranks, and lies mostly In a latitude where the cli mate would assist them to koop cool. Bibles, pocketbooks and many other of the like have all been the m.-ans of saving people's lives from bullet wounds, but probably the first tim« ’• r a i ockage of gum to act in that role, occurred at < arey, Idaho, one day recently, where the life of Dave hvans was saved by a package of gum, the bullet lodging in the package. The California habit of claiming a fortuno consisting of realty in the heart of New York city soems to be both deeply rooted and infectious. At ■ - r ~' tho ft irtt ne wa □ am 160,000.000 but in two weeks it has grown to $500,010,0<n. If the heirs can only wait a few days more it will surely be a round billion and worth striving for. Ik blood tells anything, the striking resemblance of the duke of Veragua to the Jovian fir Florence “Columbus” lends considerable confirmation to the claim that the oldest of the known portraits, and known to have been painted at least in the generation of Columbus, is the most probably truth ful. although it was not from* life, as none of the portraits were. The suggested use of homing pigeons on men-of-war calls to mind the use made of the bird's first cousin by tho captain of the ark in the time of the great freshet. With this new use of tho bird, however, its reputa tion as the emblem of peace will suffer. With a ship seven or eight hundred miles at sea there i« good reason to doubt the ability of a pigeon to make tho journey without getting lost The attorneys who labor under the impression that, a legal charge of fifty per cent or an illegal charge of ninety nine per cent of a big estate in the fashion of the Jessup fortune,is custo mary among attorneys may he sincere in their belief, but they are mistaken. Some mobs hang |ieoplc, to the great scandal of the law. Other mobs merely attend weddings to which they have not been bidden and act like a mobof petticoatod rowdies Contemplation of either variety fails to thrill the American heart with pride. A report, from Servia says the young King Alexander is a cynical youth with a heart as hard as a nether milstone; that he never has known what boyhood is and is tough for pas time and by inheritance. Ho is the right stuff to make a king of,evidently. A LAW has passed the New York legislature to punish newspapers for making false affidavits of circulation for the purpose of deceiving adver tisers. This legislative tinkering with the cherished institutions of our country will yet bear terrible fruit. Right along in line with the smoke less powder and bullet-proof uniforms comes the invention of a powder for us 3 by torpedo boats that will make such a Fittsburglan darkness that the enemy cannot tell whether the little villain is coming on or getting off. • HoPEruL people who of late have been finding themselvos heirs to European estates have generally set their expectations at $40,000,000.

Report* from Washington stele that the hour between 10 o'clock aud the time for the assembling of the cabinet la*t Tuesday was devoted by the President to Interview* with senators and representative*. Unlike former days, these dignitaries came alone and not attended by the following of enthusiastic con stituent* anxious to *ee the President. As a result the congressmen would be ena bled to talk business w ith the President ln | stead of the time being consumed In making I presentations of politicians, recollections of whom faded from the President'* mind a* their forms disappeared from view. Without exception the eongresemen were delighted with the President's new rule and expressed themselves accordingly. Representative Hynum of Indiana added his indorsement of the President's action. “I am in favor of going still further in that direction and widening the scope of the re form Inaugurated by Mr. Cleveland. I think it would be a good plan to reform the whole system of dispensing patronage." •‘What would you suggest!" he was asked. “Simply this: 1 would relieve members of congress of the duty of making recomnie nda | tlons for appointments and require aspirants for position* to present their applications and Indorsements. The papers would be placed on tile in the department, and when it became time to make that particular appointment I 1 would call In the congressmen and ask them what they knew of each candidate on the list. In this way there would be fewer applications for appointments and congressmen would be relieved of the necessity of engaging In local patronage squabbles. “They would not have a club held over them by constituents who demanded indorse ment of their claims, but would be given op portunity to suggest to the cabinet officers i the abilities and Hines* of the various appli cants. There is no reason why a man's term of congressional service should be affected by his success in getting appointments." A GRAND ILLUMINATION. T*ie World's Fair Grounds Made Attrac tive by an Klectrlc Display. The first open evening at the World'* Fair occurred on the Bth and a grand display of electric lights was given. Administration building wa* the first to be electrified ami its interior from base to tip of dome was gilded with rows of lncandesceni lights. At the base of Its dome thirty-two blazing torches on bronze stands were ranged equi-distant around its circumference, adding ! much to its splendid appearance. The peri style soon milled Its row of lights and this was the signal for the triple row of arc lamps along either side of the lagoon to lend their aid. and In an instant they were sending bright rays across the water-way. completing the band encircling the grand plaza. The main lagoon lay under the sheen of thousands of lights like a great mirror. The ' arc and peristyle lights formed its gilded frame aDd around the sides, about a foot from the water, a row of electric bulbs lent the added beauty of a golden bevel to the splendid plate. Its surface was dotted here and there with the electric launches aud the bright gondola*, Guyly bedecked gondoliers ! stood on the stem aud -tern of their craft, and as their oars dipped si.ently iu and out of the water and their bodies swayed to and fro. the romantic-looking boat and Its oarsmen form ed a novel silhouette In the sparkling basin, disappearing a moment later as It passed under the shadow of a bridge. Powerful ! search-lights on top of the manufacturers and agricultural buildings and tnuslc hall brought out new beauties In the scene for the benefit of the spectator. The golden 'Republic,” bolding aloft her 1 torch aud cap, was given such a ■•searching" that her right arm, which had been vaccl-j nated on the bleep last week by a carcles* carpenter dropping a section of scaffolding, lid not escape the notice of tho crowds who ! laughed their approval. “Gilded Diana." perched on the dome of the agricultural building, with arrow pointing directly to the . music hall light, hut the wind against her, and she was forced to bear her ordeal to the finish, which she did nobly. The three search lights were then, by preconcerted sig nal. concentrated on magnificent Mac.Monnles fountain, situated immediately In frout of the administration building. A largo crowd was present and witnessed the display. The Mississippi Rising. The Mississippi river continues to rise at Memphis at tin- rate of two-tenths of an Inch a day, the gauge now being only nine Inches below the highest water mark on record. The 1 water Is rapidly tilling up the .St. Francis Basin and gn at damage lias been done to growing crops. Delaware and Chicot coun ties, Arkansas, are being flooded by back water from the Arkamas river and the Mis souri Pacific tracks have been submerged \ large force of guards has been employed to pamd the levees along the river from the Tennessee line to Maryville, a distance of '2OO miles. The gauge at Memphis has at last registered stationary water, which encourages the planters to hope that the levees will be able to resist the torrents. Blount to be Minister. Officials of the state department confirm the prediction heretofore made that ex-Rep resentatlve Blount would tie appointed minis ter-resident to Hawaii. It has been supposed that Minister Stevens would remain In charge of tho legation until the 24th of this month, at which time he had announced his Intention of sailing for San Francisco. It Is now known that Mr. Stevens was Instructed to forthwith turn over the legation to Commis sioner Blount, who ha* been appointed his successor. There is reason to believe that Mr. Stevens was not allowed to remain in charge of the legation until the 24th instant, because of hi- activity In behalf of annexa tion. Iron and Steel Production. The statistical report of the American Iron and Steel Association for 1892 has juat been Issued. Reviewing the domestic iron trade for 1892, the report Bays that prices utterly failed to respond to the very great demand for con sumption. and it cannot, therefore, be truth fully said that our Iron and steel Industries were profitable In 1892. It was a year of good profits for very few- Iron and steel manufac turers. of small profits for many, and of no profits at all for a very large number. Seek ing for the cause of the depression, the opin ion is advanced that while other influences have hail their part, the principal cause Is to found in our capacity to produce much more iron and steel than the country could con aume, notwithstanding the enormous con sumption the last few years. A somewhat gloomy view of the future Is taken. Chinese Coming in Hordes. Investigation shows that a gigantic con spiracy exist* to flood the country with Chi nese. F.vcry Canadian-Pacific steamer for months has brought a horde of Chinese. It Is found that the number publicly reported to be on the steninera was less than one-half, probably not more than one-third the num ber actually on board. The F'mpress of Ja pan reported 300, and when ahe arrived 1,- 020 were on board. Twelve of tbese came across from Victoria at night on three skiffs, the sklpi*ers receiving $25 a head for landing them. A dozen left on a yawl on the 25th to be landed at Port Townsend. It Is reported they pay $175 to be landed In the United Staies. SOO of w hich goes to somebody who keeps tbelr eyes shut when they are coming in. Many small craft ply between Brltlah Columbia and the United States, whose buat nea* Is supposed to be entirely the handling of Chinese. Settled With Knives. A remarkable duel, that reaulted In the death of one of the prlnclplaa and fatal wounding of the other, waa fought at Frea niol, Mexico, last week. Jacobo Valdez, a prominent and wealthy yonng merchant, aud PluUrco Margro, a rising attorney, had been aultora for the hand of a well-known society yonng lady of that city for aeveral months. The two men quarreled over their love affairs, and mutually agreed to settle their difference in a duel to the death. Knives having blades three Inches long were selected aa weapons. The duel waa fought In a aeoluded spot above the olty. The duelists fought desperately for twenty minutes, when Margro fell mad, pierced to tba heart with the knife.

This hill Is rich. Below there arc walls of mineral. Oh, Lord, we pray for relief. There arc eight of us. “Gicitz Dt he.

I bis locality was known years ago as “Dead Man's Gulch.” It has long l>een reputed to have been the scene of an Indian mussacre. The theory Is that Duke and his companions were besieged by Indians and perished of starvation. F'rcd Bock, who has been In the Black Hills since 1876, says he has heard of prospectors search ing In Dead Man’s Gulch for the Lost Cabin mines, and that there waa particularly men tioned by old-timers a party headed by a “crazy Jew,” whom he believes must have been Duke. The cra/.y Jew disappeared without announcing his departure, but noth ing was thought of such a proceeding In the early days. Daney will continue prospecting. The tablet will be kept In this city.

As soon as tho person affected stopH writing, tho cratup ceases, but re turns as soon as he again attempts it. whereas any other use of the hund fails to bring it baetc. People suffer ing from this trouble try to effect a euro by moving tho wrist and forearm in writing, when it extends to those muscles. Tho left hand is ofton brought into use, but after a short time becomes similarly affected. Strenuous efforts are often made when tho cramp sots in to overcome it by muscular effort, and sometimes the person is nblo to write for a few moments, but the result is amiserablo specimen of penmanship, and is ofton illegible. In u short time, however, even the powor to hold tho pen be comes impossible. Tho disease is unknown in child hood, seldom coming on before tho 25th year, affecting men more fre quently than women. Writing with pencils or tho stylographic pen is not as liablo to produce writers' cramp ns is the sharp-pointed steel pen, the reason being that there is less resis tance. Tobacco and alcohol in ex cess are said to be causative agents. There is also a certain hereditary tondency to the cramp. Injuries to tho fingers and arm sometimes act as predisposing causes. There are two classes of muscular action concerned which are important causes in tho disoase. Tho steady contraction of the muscles that poise the hand and hold tho pen, and the intermittent contractions of tho mus cles concerned in moving it. A cramp of a similar nature some times nttacks pianists, violin play ers, seamstresses, milkmaids, tele graph operators, etc. If the discaso lias existed but a short tiiuo a euro can almost positively bo expected; but whoro it lias been of long stand ing. treatment, though carried out conscientiously and oxtending over a very long period, often yields littlo or no results. As regards prevention, a soft stub pen. smooth paper, a desk of con venient height with ample room to allow tho arm full swing, loose sleeves, using tho muscles of tho arm to form tho letters, changing tho manner of holding the pen, using tho typewriter, etc., all form important factors in preventing the discaso, especially in those who experience such premonitory symptoms as slight weakness of tho muscles, slight pain and sudden contractions and spasm of the fingers. The best and quickest results may be obtained by the use of electricity, massage and gymnastics. Absolute rest, tonic treatment, and clmngo of climate arc advisable. When all mothods fail, the only alternative is to change one's occupation, that tho muscles may have no cause for spas modic contraction. HE KNEW IT ALL. The A«1 veiltnrot of an English Tourist With n Plugged Dollar. lie was an Englishman, just arrived from Australia, on his way around the world. Ho wore tho regulation tweed suit, a fore-and-aft cap, and -aid “clble” for cable. Ho was buto that everybody was trying to Impose upon him. and repeatedly declared that ho was a sharp fellow and didn't propose to bo taken in by any of tho clever Yankees. Ho know tho cus tom officers were all swindlers, but ho told everybody on tho steamer that ho should be prepared, says tho San Francisco Examiner. When he landed, of course his baggage was ex amined and contraband goods discov ered on which tho duty amounted to i forty cents. Perhaps if he lia:l not blustered so | I much the inspector would not have I i said a word. At any rate his luggage | i was hold until he could go to the I custom house and pay tho trille of ! duty. Ho was angry at the delay and ex- ; pressed himself freely on the way up | tho street. ••The idea of putting a man to all i | this trouble for a beggarly forty ! . cents,” he growled, ••liut if these Yankees think they can get ahead ol . ! mo they arc mistaken.” Then he offered tho receiver a 1 plugged Mexican dollar and wanted the change. Of course the cashier declined to accept the mutilated coin, and tho traveler became very indignant. Ho ! demanded to see the collector, ami ! was shown to Mr. Phelps’ office. Of , course the action of tho cashier was upheld l*y his superior. ••My dear sir,''said Mr. Phelps,“wo cannot accept any mutilated money or i foreign coin.” Rut the tourist insisted, and finally Mr. Phelps offered to give him a dol i lar to pay tho duty. Then he became ; insulted and announced his intention i of communicating with tho Rrltlsli ! consul. Ho went to the Palace hotel and laid there threo clays boforo he con : eluded to go down and pay the forty | cents. Coukling’s Bill. . Hoscoe Conkling onco defended a man who was on trial for arson. Conkling, who was rather new at tho bar, called upon Charlos O’Connor and Baid: “There is Johnson. To bo sure, he was convicted, and the con viction was affirmed. But I had a grout deal of trouble, and I only ■ charged him S6OO, and his friends do cline to pay tho bill. Don’t you ■ think the charge is reasonable and fair?” Mr. O’Connor turned in his j chair and said; “Well, Conkling I > have no doubt that you did the best 1 you could. Six hundrod dollars is not a largo bill. But I have no doubt ho could have been convicted for a great deal less money. A Modest Sweep. Mr. Plant, a London chimney sweeper, is said to bo the last living , representative of the English branch of the Plantagenot line. The resßon why ho calls himself Plant and not Plantagenot is because he considers that tho monosyllabic name U more in accordance with his preecnt social position. Circumstantial Evidence.

The *rmy bill was rejected on the 6th In the RclcbsUi; by a vote of 210 against tbe bill to 163 In favor of the bill. Tbe rescript ■lgoed by the kaiser dissolving the Reichstag was Immediately promulgated and tbe Reich stag Is now dissolved. I 1 lion tbe result of the vote belug announced In tbe Reichstag, Chancellor Caprlvl read the Imperial mes sage, decreeing the dissolution of the Reich stag. The Social Democratic members of the Reichstag displayed the wildest enthusiasm orcr the result. They hurrahed repeatedly, following cheer with cheer. Great confusion and uproar prevailed Id tbe House and public excitement was at the highest pitch In Berlin. The emperor Is said to he chagrined and Incensed at tbe result. On the passage of the army hill the kaiser had set his heart. That measure provided for an Increase of 60,- 000 privates and a corresponding number of olllccrs and sub-olticcrs. This Increase would entail an additional expenditure of 914,000,- 000 annually. It would bring Into tbe army practically every adult male In the Father land In a few years, as the men would have finished their allotted time In the active array and dropped Into the reserves, would add several hundred thousand men to Ger many's fighting force. The halt held out to the opponents of the MU was the reduction of the term of service In the active army from three to two years, but certain provisions In the hill left It optional with the government to retain recruits for tho full term of three years In case of emergency. Of that emer gency the ministry, not the Reichstag, would be Judge. The only solid supporters of the govern ment from the start have been the Conserva tive*, who control seventy votes. The Reich stag consists of 379 members and the largest single party is the Center, numbering 110 votes. These were formerly divided Into two groups, one under I)r. I.leber’s leadership, numbering thirty-live, and the other seventy five. AN AWFUL FATE. I’astengera on s Packet lloat Cooked Alive ns is Ilesult of m Boiler Bursting. A frightful catastrophe occurred on the Mississippi below Wolf island on the 7tb. A rear end of one of the hollers of the steamer Ohio, a Cincinnati and Memphis packet, blew out, filllug the deck cabin with steam and boiling water. Six of the deck bands and deck passengers who were eating breakfast at tho time were literally cooked alive and a large number received serious burns. A number of others were badly burned and will die. The wildest consternation reigned on hoard the boat, and tho screams of the passengers ami the groans and appeals of the victims, made the scene a terrible one. The boat could proceed no further, and for several hours It lay at the hank, while the unfortu nato victims lay on the deck writhing In agony and calling aloud for aid. At last the tug Aegeus hove In sight. She was hailed and tbe sufferers, twenty-two In number,were transferred to her deck and then she Im mediately steamed to Cairo. Word had been telegraphed ahead nml every physician In town was on the wharf to meet her. The suf fering of the victims was alleviated us much m possible, but before they could tie removed from tbe boat four of them were dead. Tho remainder of them were transferred to the United States Marine hospital. Another one died soon after rcaehlug there, and the surgeon declares that ten of the sixteen now in the hospital will die. Cyrus Meyers,tbe second mate,was terribly scalded. He was insane with pain and to relieve himself Jumped Into the river, lie went to the bottom ami was seen no more. None of the cabin passengers were Injured. War in Micronesia. News of war among the natives of the Island of Kuk, one of the Mortlock group in the South Pacific, U brought by Chief Officer Duncan, of the ship Morning Star. Many live* have been lost In the fierce conflict*. “When we were there,” said Mr. Duncan, “the excitement had reached such a pitch that no man’s life was safe. The resident missionary, a man named Scanuel, ventured among the men to a-k them to cease fighting. They rushed upon bUn and brandished their knives, and there were loud cries of ‘cut him up,’‘kill him.’ He mananged to get away, however, and made his escape. “At one of the Marshall Islands three Span ish soldiers deserted and escaped. They were secreted and fed at a native's house for a couple of months. One night they arose and butchered every one In the house. No one knew the reason why, hut a little while after that three other Spaniards were surrounded by the natives nnd killed. I heard after wards that the three Spanish murderers were captured and executed." Mr. Duncan says the natives of Ponapc are openly hostile to the Spanish rulers. There lire no white missionaries on l’onape now. the Spanish having driven them all off. The Germans at Juliet have also driven off the native teacher whom the Morning Star took early In the year. The Sunday Fair. The mlo to close the gates of the Wctli's Fair on Sunday was rigidly enforced on last Sunday, at least so far na tho ticket-purchas ing public was concerned. The fortunate hundred* who hold posses were admitted, however, and allowed to wander about ihc grouuds at tlielr will. It wns a beautiful day and thousands of workingmen, some of them with families, went to the fair grounds under the upprehenslon that the gates would bo open, and when these tollers were turned away they left In anything but a good humor. It was highly aggravating to them to see tho fuvored hundreds, even thousands eater the ground* on passes, while they, who worked all week were excluded. Tho validity of the law of Congress dosing the gates Is to be tested In the courts. Charles W. Cllugman who Is a stockholder in the fair, has served notice on Secretary Ed monds that he will appeal to the courts to open the fair on Sunday. In his letter in the Interest of the working people and as a repre sentative of other stockholders, he demanded tbnt the people be admitted Sunday the same as every other day In tho week. President Higlnbotham thinks the suit will amount to nothing. _ Joilet Rolling Mills Closed. The Jodet Rolling Mill, a branch of the Illinois Sled Company. Is closed In nil de partments. The plant bns furnished work for 2.600 men. lu December a portion of the mill was closed, leaving 1,000 men Idle, hut these had expectation of speedy resump tion. Tbe close-down will now let all hands out. They declare It will be Impossible tc resume at the present priced of steel and Iron, which are lower than In the last twenty years. Even If tbe mills were opened the perplexing question of adjusting the card scale of price would arise, aa the old scale expired January 1. The mill’s monthly pay-roll averaged 1130,000. The Monetary Conference Postponed. The International Monetary conference, which adjourned to reassemble In Brussels on tbe thirty-first of May will not assemble on that day. The general feeling was expressed by the representatives of the leading powers that the end of May was not n suitablo time for recommcnclug the labors of tbe confer ence. As the result of a consultation held between the President, (Secretary Gresham and some of tbe delegates of the United (Rates on tbe sth, It was determined to cable tbe announcement that the reassembling of tbe conference would be postponed until some time next November. Governor MeCreary ol Kentucky, who, as well as Senator Jones of Nevada, will oontlnue to serve upon the commission, expresses much gratification »t tbe change of date and believes It will In crease tbe prospect of the conference aocom pllshlng some solid results.

Cats Aro Often Connected With Wltcli eraft. While the Cuckoos Are As sociated With Ideas of Milder C haracter. In tlio bardic logonds and old folk loro of Iroland wo now and then meet with a paragraph or a phraso of na tional character which arrests our thoughts. Much there may bo to feed and stimulate the enthusiasm of tho ardont soarchor after tho mystic and the weird: but tho ordinary mor tal of hard work day life muy bo thankful if chance throw a fow Horns in his way without having first to gloan them out of tho obscuro notes and tho long, dull heavy pagos of prosy compilations. Like some other nations, tho Irish invested even the lowest forms of animal lifo with tho power of oxereislng no small influ ence on tho actions and destinies of man. The darn deil (forficula, oleus, or black devil), an insect of tho ear wig class, used to bo an object of almost universal abhorrence, yet its sorvicos wore sometimes availed of in labor which demunded extraor dinary physical exertion. In creep ing along, whonevor it hears any noiso it always halts, cocks up its tail, and jerks out its sting, which is similar to that of a bee. No roptilo has l>eon so much ab horred and dreaded by the peasantry as tho black devil, as it used to l»o commonly believed that this insect betrayed to His Jewish enemies tho way in which tho Savior went when leaving tho city of Jerusalem. It was no small gain to destroy this in sect; for seven sins, it was said, wore taken off tho soul of tho slayer. Tho people believed tho sting of tho dura devil to l)o vory poisonous, if not mortal, and that it possessed a do moniuc spirit. Under this impres sion, whenever it is seen in a house by tho peasantry, they always de stroy it by placing a coal of firo over it, and. when burned the ashes aro carefully swept out. It is not trodden on by foot as a less formidable Insect would be, nor is it killed by u stick, for it is be lieved that tho poisonous or demon iac cssenco would bo conveyed to the body of tho slayer through leather or wood. It has often been reluted that laborers havo boon enabled to per forin extraordinary feats through the agency of tho black devil, which they insert in some purt of the implements of their lnbor, but tho fow who are so daring as to huve recourse to such means wero regarded as dabblers in tho black art, and wero looked upon as reckless, as "utterly left to them selves,” and almost beyond tho pale of salvation. This insect Is still considered ex ceedingly dangerous, Bays Chambers’ Journal: it is thought to be a kind of scorpion, but very few, indeed, aro now disposed to lift it to the dignity of preternatural influence. Tho cuckoo is associated with ideas of n milder character. When first heard, in whatover quarter you aro looking, in that direction you are to live tbe rest of the year; but the d.istanco is indefinite: it may boa mile or it may bo 100 miles, and there is always a wide margin allowed on either sido tho line, which givos easy fulfillment to tho prediction. This happy ar rangement leaves plenty of space for coincidence, and gives tbe cuckoo a long lease of prestige ut.d importanco. Tho cut, so intimately associated with tho Idolatry of Egypt, was not likely to Is) forgotten in tlio fotiehism of Celtic mythology. Tho preter natural attributes said to be ascribed to it by tho Druids have outlived tho Druids, their rites and their systems and havo eoino down to us refined and mellowed by tbe lupso of cen turies.

He says: "Cats arc supposed to bo but too often connect, ml witu witchcraft, and to lend their outward form to familiar spirits. The timorous respect persons have for them is increased by tho fact of their froquont meetings, to whicli they come from a distance of seven or oight. miles, and from fifty toolxty aro often in the assembly. "Tho parliament is generally on these occasions under a haystack, and, as in another groat house of con gress. their deliberations aro in tho night Their discourse is us loud as it is vehement. What they dobato about is not exactly ascortainod, but no doubt upon matters of gravo im port to feline polity, war and com merce, ways and means, tho falling of followers, tho incroaso of ruts, tho shortening of tails, much arguing, at any rate, about, raising tho wind, for Erris cats aro known to have tho power of creating a storm or causing u calm; and this supposition seems to havo arisen from cats being obsorvod scratching tho leg of a stool or a table, or any up.dght thing within their reach, previous to a gale of wind, looking most knowingly and consciously tho whole time, and fre quently accompanying thoir exoroiso with most melancholy mows. "The storm which succeeds is sup posed to bo tho effect of this feline proceeding, which is looked on os an incantation, insomuch that tho mo ment a cat is observed to commonco tho scratching, it is immediately struck at with a stick or tongs or any other weapon within reach; it is, moreover, assaultod with a clap of curses peculiarly appropriate to cots under those circumstances. As soon as the storm begins to rise all tho available cats are seized and placed under metal pots, and there bold in durance vile until they resort to tho oxorcisc of thoir power In causing a calm. Now, not only is this power universally allowed, but, what is of incalculable importanco, it is often taken advantage of by tho cat’s owner.” Not very long ago a vossol was de tained in Blueksod bay. During tho time of delay tho skipper bocame in timato with and engaged the affec tions of Catty Kano. But when his vossol was ready for sea the roving blade, with all a sailor's inconsis tency, hoisted his sails and put. out to sea, nover intending to soo tho fair one moro. But Catty knew a trick worth two of that, and had rc courso to her cat. And now tho brig is put into all her trim to clear tho bay, but in vain; tho wind blows a hurricane and sho must come back to her old anchorage. In the Same Class.
