. My niece, Emeline Hawley, was,
taken with spitting blood, and she
became very much alarmed, fearing
that dreaded disease, Consumption.
She tried nearly all kinds of medi
cine but nothing did her any good.
Finally she took German Syrup and
she told me it did her more good
than anything she ever tried. It
stooped the blood, gave her strength
and case, and a good appetite. I

Weston, a faro dealer rooming
° n Kearney street, near Washington,
Bsn Francisco, la tho possessor of two
silky Bcotch terriers. He has had tbs
little animals for several years, and In
that time tho prlilo of possession deep
ened Into ftonulno affection. Tho little
i dogs, Mac and Minnie, were brought to
; this country when puppies by one ot
Weston’s friends. Every morning Wes
ton takes his dogs on a short ramble
through tho streets, and the other
morning entered Union square. While
the owner was pacing up and dowb the
gravel walk enjoying a cigar the dogs
; rnn around In tho grass. Weston no
ticed a suspicious-looking stranger pnt
"Mac”’ on tho head and then walk
away, looking back at intervals with a
beguiling smile, ns though to coax the
dog to follow him. “Mac," however,
did not budge. About fifteen minutes
after the stranger went away a big
Newfoundland dog came bounding into
the park and commenced snitting about
the terriers. Suddenly the big dog
seized “Mac" In hts mouth and darted
away. Weston gave chase, and, being
somewhat of a sprinter, he pressed so
hard upon tho Newfoundland that the
animal dropped tho terrier within halt
a block of the park and got away.
After assuring himself that "Mac’’ was
uninjured and that “Minnie" was not
stolen in tho excitement of the pursuit
of the thief, Weston went home. Luter
he said to an Examiner man: "I think
that It was a new plan for stenllng
valuable dogs. That man entered tho
: park, sighted out the dog ho wanted,
patted it on the head and body so ns
; to give It his ‘murk,’ ns it is called, and
; then sent his big bruto nfter. The
! Newfoundland was guided by scent, ns
; he would have been If n lint or a linnd
r kerchief or anything of tha» k-lud had

Ft. Louis. June P. —The Furniture
Manufacturers Convention lias proved
a great success and has added another
. link to the chain of successful commer
cial conventions held in St. Lou's.
Trade after trade has met in this city
■ in convention and almost without ex
ception delegates have gone away en
thusiastic as to their treatment and as
to the success of tho gathering, lint
although St. I.ouis is the third manu
facturing city in the country and Is
equally prominent as a furniture jo' -
bfng center this is the first time the
■ manufacturers in this line have met in
tho Convention City. The proceedings
. were marked by harmony and prompt
ness and although no vexed questions
of importance were taken up and do
- cided there was still enough matter of
interest to provide lively sessions and
well sustained debates.
The national headquarters of the
Travelers’ Protective Association, hav
- iug been for some time located in St.
Louis.in wmen city tue .National Pres
ident lives, a crowd of unuaual aimeu
' tlons left for Peoria on Monday to at
-1 tend the annual convention, and a
■ large percentage of the crowd has re
mained to go on to Chicago to take
. part in the T. P. A. celebrations at the
■' World's Fair on Saturday. Tho ques
] tion of the two commercial travelers’
. days at the Fair, June 10 and July 3d.
i having been canvassed very fully.local
1 sentiment proved unanimously in favor
-of the former day, and hence while
there will be some 2,000 St. Louisians
in Jackson Park on Saturday, there
: will be few, if any, on Jnly 2(5.
The builders of the new Union Do
-1 pot are ahead of time in their work,
and.the largest Union depot in Amer
ica will be open for traffic this sum
mer. The main building is in a very
forward condition and the sheds with
their thirty-two parallel tracks and
| the two and a half acres of glass in
u the roof are nearly ready for business,
i The depot covers nn arex of twenty
r acres, but already there nro rumors of
Eroposed enlargements. Expert critics
ave noticed that the front is bo
planned as to allow for the aoDroach
f aud entrance of tracks from the north
. and it is rumored that the Burlington
road, which is about to construct a
passenger depot north of the Union
d -not will seek powers to run a con
; nectimr line. Tin* Hound Top Market
. uaseuger ucpoi, to accoininooate
railroads using the Merchants' Terini
- nals, is about lo be constructed and
is already conftnenced on tho
- Belt Line of the latter terminal sys
tem, which will ski;t the city a few
miles beyoud the limits and take care
of the immense amount of through
traffic without passing through the
tenter of the city at all.
'Jhe popularity of cycling in this
1 section is growing rapidly. Annual
meets take place on fixed dates, among
i them being the ride to De Soto on the
first Sunday in June. Seventy-five
uniformed liders mode this very diffl
’ cult trip over the mountains last Sun
-1 dav. among their number being four
gold medal men from Chicago, who
came specially for the purpose. Tho
I distance is ouly fifty miles, but it is
, believed to be the most difficult fifty
' miles to cover within sovoral hundred
- miles of this place, and even the best
I trained and oldest riders find it a mat
ter of considerable difficulty. The
proceedings took quite the nature of a
triumphal procession nnd tho trip was
marred with but very few mishaps.
Although it rained hard for an h( ur
the elements were so obliging that all
the rain came during the dinner hour
| and not a drop fell while the men were
. on the road. Ihe party returned to
t St Louis by special car and of the long
• line of riders only one missed connec

Keep Toads Out of the Well.
The only way to keep frog spawn out
of a well Is to keep it closed so that
the frogs cannot get Into It. It Is most
probable that theso eggs are those of
: toads and not frogs, ns these two kinds
of ntnphlblous animate resemble each
other In the manner of laying eggs,
with tills difference only, viz., that
toads’ eggs are laid In strings having a
double row of ovn, adherent to the
gelatinous envelopes, while frogs’ eggs
are laid In masses of Irregular shape.
Toads aro more apt to get Into wells
than froga, and extreme care must be
taken to prevent It. The well should
be cleaned out to the bottom If the
eggs cannot be dipped out as they float
on the surface, and the top of the well
should be closely sealed by brickwork
and a flagstone laid in mortar on the
bricks. It Is a popular error that wells
are not wholesome unless tliev are
open to the air and ventilated. On the
contrary, they are far safer If thor
oughly closed and If every opening by
which any kind of animal can get into
them is perfectly sealed. If the well
Is nn open one it may be protected by
a tight curb three feet high.
Remedics for Foot-rot.
1 The Sheep Breeder says: In regard
to foot-rot the flockraaster ought to
keep a few facts distinctly In mind and
act on them. 1. Blue vitriol (sulphate
of copper) Is the one recognised, In
fallible core for it If It does not cure,
the riiepberd may set It down that it
was the fhnlt of the manner and mode
of application and not of the medicine.
2. The vitriol cannot penetrate to all
the remote larking places of the vlma
tmlees It Is applied In the form of an
active eolation, as in water, and not
mtied with any each viscid, gammy
seheteacs as white lend or tar. 8. It

Charlotte Pendleton tn L’ippincott'a
tn one of the larger towns of Wor
dstar county, Massachusetts, usod to

KitlewelL 110 was of tho Baptist per- !
suasion, and very rigid in his ideas
of moral propriety. Ho had in his !
employ an old negro, named Pompey, ;
and if this latter individual was not
*0 strict in his morals as his master,
he wns ut least a very cunning dog,
and passed in tho reverend household
fora pattern of propriety. Pomp, wns
a useful servant, und the old clergy
man never hesitated to trust him
with the most important business.
Now it so happened that there
were, dwelling in and about tho town,
sundry individuals who had not tho
fear of tho dreudful penalties which
Mr. Kidowell preached about bofore
tliofr eyes, for it was tho wont of
thcro people to congregate on Sab
bath evenings upon n level piece of
land in the outskirts of the town
and tlioro race horses. This spot
wa« hidden from view by a dense
ploi'.e of woods, and for a long wliiio
tho Sunday evening races wore car
ried on thero without detection
by tho officers, or others who might
hn*estopped them.
I', also huppenod that the old
clergyman owned ono of tho best
horses in tho county. This horse
wat of the old Morgan stock, with a
mixturo of the Arabian blood in his
vo’ns, und it was generally known
tliAt few beasts could pass him on the
road. Mr. Kidowell, with a dignity
besoming his calling, declared that
Lira llectness of his horso never af
forded him any gratification, and
that, for his own part, bo would as
lief have any other. Yet money
cculd not buy his Morgan, nor could
ary amount of argument persuade
’ lii in to swap.
Tho church was so near to tho good
i clergyman’s dwelling that ho always
, walked to meeting, and his horso was
t consequently allowed to remain in
tho pasturo.
Pompey discovered that tliesc races
wire on the tapis, und ho resolved to
\ enter his master’s horse on his own
account, for ho felt sure that old
. Morgan could bout anything in the
. shape of horse flesh that could be pro
duced in that quarter. So on the
> very next Sunday evening he hid the
bridle under his jaeket, went out into
tho pasture and caught the horse, aud
, then rode off toward tho spot whero
I the wicked ones were congregated.
; Hero ho found some dozen horses us-
Bcmblod, and tho racing was about to
) commence. Pomp, mounted his beast,
f acid at the signal ho started. Old
Morgan entered into the spirit of the
thing, and came out two rods ahead
of everything. So Pomp, won quite
a pile, and before dark lie was well
initiated in horse-racing.
l’oinp, succeeded in getting home
without oxciting any suspicions, and
ho now longed for the Sabbath after
noon to come, for bo was determined
to try it again. Ho did go again,
and again ho won; and this course of
wickedness ho followed up for two
1 months, making his appearanoo upon
tho racing ground every Sunday
, aftornOon. us soon us lie could aftor
“meeting was out.” And during this
. tlmo Pompey was not the only ono
who hud learned to love tho racing.
No. for old Morgan himself had come
lo love tho excitement of tho thing,
too. und his every motion when upon
tho track showed how zealously ho
Dutcrod into tho spirit of the game.
But those things wore not always
to remain secret. Ono Sunday a
pious deacon boliold this racing from
a distance, and straightway went to
tho parson with tho alarming in
tolligonco. Tho Rev. Mr. Ridowoll
was utterly shocked. His moral
feelings were outraged, and ho re
solved at oneo to put u stop to tho
wickedness. Dflring the week he
tnado many inquiries, and he learned
that this thing had been practised
all summer on every Sabbath after
noon. Ho bade his parishionors koop
quiet, and ho told them that on tho
noxt Sunday ho would make his up
poarunco on tho very spot and catch
them in thoir deeds of iniquity.
On the following Sabbath, after
dinner, Mr. Ridowoll ordered Pomp
to bring up old Morgan and put him
lin tho stable. Tho order was obeyod,
though not without many misgivings
on tho part of tho old negro. As
soon as tho afternoon services were
closed, tho two deacons nnd Homo
others of tho members of tho church
uceompanied tho minister homo, with
their horses.
••It is the most flagrant pieco of
abomination that over came to iny
knowledge,” said the indignunt cler
gyman, as they rode on.
•‘lt is. most assuredly," answered
one of the dcncons.
••Horse-racing on tho Sabbath!”
uttered tho minister.
"Dreadful!” echoed tho second
And so tho conversation wont on
until they reachod the top of a gentle
eminence which overlooked tho plain
whore the racing was carried on. und
whore somo dozen horsemen, with a
score of lookers-on, were assembled.
Tho sight was ono which chillod tho
good parson to Ills soul. Ho re
mained motionloss until ho had made
out the wLjlo alarming truth, thon
turning to his companions:
"Now, my brothers,” said ho. "let
us rido down and confront the wicked
wretches, and if they will down upon
their knocs, and implore God’s mercy,
and promise to do so no more, wo
will not tako legal notion against
thorn. Oh, that my own land should ;
be deseerated thus!” for it was indeed
a flection of his own farm.
As the good clergyman thus spoke,
ho started on toward tho scono. Tho
horses of tho wicked mon were just
drawing up for a start as the minister
approached, and somo of tho riders
who at once recognized "old Morgan.”
did not rocognizo tho reverend indi
vidual who rode him.
"Wicked mon!” commenced tho
parson, as ho came near one ugh for
his voice to be heard, "children of
■in a. id shame” •
"Cotuu on, old hoss,” cried ono of
tho jockeys, turning toward the min
ister. "If yon are In for the first
raoe, you must stir your stump*. Now
"Alas! Ob, my wicked”
"AU re«4y!” sfeouted ho who led in
A* the minister shoht.
his ears than he stuck out his now,
and with one wild snort ho started,
and the rest of the racers, twelve in
number, kept him company.
"Who-oft! who-oa-oa!” cried the
parson at the top of his voice.
"By the powr.rs, old fellow, you’re
a keen ono!" shouted btiii bf tho
wicked men, who had thus far man
aged to koop close by the side of the
parson. "You ride well.”
"Who-ho-ho-o-o! who-a-oa!” yelled j
tho clergyman, tugging at tho reins |
with all his might
But it was all of no avail. Old (
! Morgan had now reachod ahead of all j
i competitors, and ho came up to the !
J judge’s stand three rods ahead, whero *
: the pet rifled deacons were standing, :
with eyes and mtilt Ihi ttide open,
j "Don’t stop,” cried the jtidge, wllo j
now recognized Parson Ridowoll, and j
j suspected his business, and who also I
| saw at once into tlio secret of old 1
Morgan’s joining the race. "Don’t j
stop,” ho shouted again; "it is a two- j
mile heat this time. Keep right on, |
parson. You are good for another j
mile. Now you go—and off it is!”
Theso last words were of course I
known to tho horso, and no soonor l
did Morgan hoar them, than he stuck '
his nose out again, anil again started j
off. Tho poor parson did his utmost
to stop the bowitched animal, but it
could not bo done. Tho more he I
struggled nnd yelled, the faster tho
animal wont on, nnd ere many nio
ments ho wan agafn at the starting
point, where Morgan now stopped of
his own uccord. 'J hero was a hurried
whispering among the wiekod ones,
und a succession of very curious
winks and knowing nods seem to in
dicate that they understood.
"Upon my soul, parson,” said the
leader of tho abomination, approach
ing tho spot whore tho minister still
sat in his saddle, ho having not yet
sufficiently recovered his presence of
mind to dismount, "you rido well.
We had not looked for this honor."
"Honor, sir!” gasped Ridewell,
looking blankly into tho speaker’s
"Ay—for ’tis an honor. You are
the first clergyman who has evor
joined us in our Sabbath evening en
tertainments. ”
"I—l, sir! joined you?”
"Ila, ha, ha! O, you did it well.
Your good deacons really think you
tried to stop your horse; but I saw
through it; I saw how slyly you put
your liorse up. But I don’t blame
you for fooling proud of old Morgan,
for I should fool so myself if I owned
him. But you need not fear; I will
tell all who may ask mo about it that
you did your best to stop your beast;
for I would rather stretch the truth
a little than have such a good jockey
us you are suffer.”
This hud been spoken so loudly that
tho deacons had heard every word
nnd tho poor pastor was bewildered;
but he soon came to himself, and with
a flashing eye, he cried:
“Villains, wliat mean you? ’Why
do ye thus”—
“Hold on,” interrupted one of tho 1
party, and as ho spoko, the rest of
the racing mon had all mounted thoir
horses, “hold on a moment, parson.
\Ve aro willing to allow you to carry
off tho palm, but wo won’t stand your
abuse. When we heard that you had
determined to try if your horso
would not beat us all, wo agreed
among ourselves that if you came we
would lot you in. Wo have done so,
and you won the race in a two-mile
heat. Now let that satisfy you. By \
the hokey. but you did it well. When j
you want to try it again, just send us
word, and wo’ll be ready for you
As tho wrotcli thus spoke, lie
turned his horso’s bead, and be
fore tho astounded preacher could
utter a word, tho whole party hud
ridden away out of hearing. It was
somo time before one of the church
men could speak. Tlioy know not
what to say. Why should their min
ister's horse have joined in the raco
without some permission from his
master? They knew how much he
set by the animal, and at length they
shook thoir heads with doubt.
••It is very strange,” said ono.
"Very,” answered a second.
“Remarkable,” suggested a third.
"On my soul, brethren,” spoke
Ridowoll, "I ean’t make it out.”
Tho brethren looked nt eaeli other,
and tho deacons shook their heads
in a very solemn and impressive
So tho party rode back to tho cler
gyman’s house, but none of tho breth
ren would enter, nor would they
stop at all. Bofore Monday had
drawn to a close, it was generally
known that Parson Ridowoll raced
his horso on the Sabbath, and a
meeting of tho church was appointed
for Thursday.
Poor Ridewell was almost crazy
with vexation, but before Thursday
came, Pompey found out how mutters
stood, nnd lie assured his master that
ho would clear the “matter up; nnd
after a day’s search, ho discovered
tho astounding fact that somo of
those wiekod mon had been in tho
habit of stealing old Morgan from
the pasturo, and racing him on Sab
bath afternoons! Pomp found out
this mueh —but he could not find who
did it!”
As soon as this became known to
tho church, the members conferred
together, and they soon concluded
that under such circumstuncos a high
mettled horso would ho very apt to
run away with his rider whon ho
found himself directly upon the track.
So Parson Ridewell was cleared,
but it was a long while before ho got
over tho blow, for many were the
wicked wags who delightod to pester
him by offering to "ride a raco” with
him, to "hot on his head,” or to "put
him against tho world on a raco.”
But Ridowoll grow older, his heart
grew warmer, und Anally ho could
laugh with right good will when he
spoko of his unexpected raco. Be
sure thero was no more Sabbath
racing in that town.—N. Y. Journal.
Breeding Two-Tailed Goldfish.
It is the general belief of many
I leading iehthologists that tho gold
! fish really belongs to no gonera or
species; in fact, they bolievo it to bo
a monster brought about through
brooding. This belief lias been
strengthened by tho fact that it is
now well known that the ingenious
Celestial has actually bred a wholo
colony of goldfish, each having two
well-devolopod tails and two setß of
anal fins. Biologists of national rep
utation in this country say that, it
would bo equally as easy a task to
breed quadrupeds with eight logs.
Why Clergymen Are Selfish.
A philosophic observer professes
to have noted a touch of selfishness
in clergymen when traveling, and
that, too, without regard to denomi

lie wont into a restaurant and sat
himself down at a table. T *l the
young woman who came to learn h(s
wants ho observed:
'•Giro me bam and eggs, broad and
butter and a cup of coffee.”
; The food was brought in duo time.
I and when it was nearly consumed
tho waitress approached and laid a
check by the eater’s plate.
"What might that be?” he asked.
'■Check, sir,” she replied.
I “A check, oh?” he went on, taking
j it between his thumb ami forefinger
and inspecting it. "What is it for?”
"it is to tell you Jjyw much to pay
ll*o cashier.” she replied, wondering
al tho inquirer’s Ignorance.
“Pay the cashier? I pay tho cash
ier?” he repeated interrogatively.
“Yes, of course.”
"Thorc is no ‘Of course’ about it. I
don’t intend to pay the Cflsbior. Why
should 1?”
"For the food you have eaten.”
"My dear young woman. I have no
intention of paying for that.
"Hut you ordered it.”
"True, but you misapprehended
tho terms in which I made my wants
known, or else you are ignorant of
the moaning of soino of the most
common words of tho English lan
j guage. I will proceed to enlighten

Now tho word ‘give’ as defined by

means ‘ld bestow without receiving

ponsation. ’ Yet after I asked you 111
plain English, to givo me such edi
blos as I felt I needed, you show your
lack of knowledge of the EriglisJi
tongue by intimating an expectation
thut I should pay—”
He did not continue. His discourse
on language met with an it!t-rrnp
tion at this point; Tho cashier
thought an unnecessary amount of
talking was going on at that particu
lar table, and ho came to see what
it was abotlt. When bo ascertained
the subject of tho lecture he grasped
tho speaker by the coat collar and
escorted him to tho door, with some
remarks of his own which, while not
particularly noted for their elegance,
wore decidedly forcible.
I.mi.ir Influence on I lie Landlocked Sou
Is of .‘-mull Dimensions.
It is not correct to say, although
sUcli d remark is frequently made,
that the Mediterranean lias no tide,
as thore is a daily rise and fall of the’
water duo to the action of the moon,
but it is of very small dimensions.
It is not entirely owing to the land
locked position of this sea that its
tide is so small (although, according
| to tho Brooklyn Eagle, this circuin
j stance has much to do with it); fnr
| Hudson and Baffin's bays und the Bed
sea lmvo well marked tides, due to
tho fact that thoir mouths are open
in the direction of the tidal current,
while tho entrance to the Mediter
ranean at Gibraltar is at right angles
to it; thus but a small portion of tho
tide passes through from the Atlan
tic, not sufficient to produce any
j marked difference in its level. Be
sides this, its dimensions are too
limited to allow of the moon’s action
being e jually exerted upon it, when
in the direct line of her attractions,
so that the equilibrium of the
surface is not greatly disturbed. The
highest tidal tise in the Mediterra
nean occurs to tho east of Sicily,
whore a wave flows up the Adriatic,
olovating tho water nearly four feet,
at new and full moon and half that
amount at neap tides. At Antium
regular tides have boon found, in tho
summer, rising to fourteen inches,
and a tide was observed at Toulon
rising a foot abouff three and a hair
hours after tho moon had passed the
meridian. In tho east of the son
tides are folt, and also slightly in tho
Grecian archipelago, but. tho general
level only fluctuates a few inches.
The soldiers of Alexander wero
alarmed on beholding tho high tide
at tho mouth of tho Indus and the
troops cf Ctesnr wore similarly af
fected by a light spectacle on the
English coasts, their provious knowl
edge of tho oceanic phenomena hav
ing been confined to the compara
tively tideless seas of Italy and
I Origin of tlio Fount of Lanterns Ole
liratPil In tho KlHt Month.
! Of the many feasts of the Chineso
tho most remarkable is known as
••Tho Feast of Lanterns. ” It is eolo
bratod on tho 15th day of the first
month of the year. On this occasion
every person is obligod to set out lan
terns ut his doors and windows, tho
size, number and colors of which de
pend on the financial standing or the
fanaticism of the devotee. During
this festival they spend thoir time in
attending all sorts of entertainments,
such as balls, plays, fan-tan assem
blies, dancing halls, otc. Tho mil
lions of different-colored lanterns are
each provided with from two to a
dozen, and some of the largest—which
are in some instances as big as a
,-mall house—are provided with 107
candles, never more, and surrounded
with bonfires.
Tho Chinoso ascribe the origin of
this festival to tho following melon*
choly oceurrcneo: One evening as tho
daughter of an old mandarin was
walking by the side of a river, she
fell in und was drowned. Tho dis
consolate father, in order to recover
tho body, which had boon observed
to float out into tho ocean at the
mouth of tho river, put to sea, at
tended by nil tho peoplo of the noigh
j borhood, each carrying a lantern; but.
| after a fruitless search, they wore
forced to return without tho body of
the girl. The old mandarin was a
! man much beloved by the people, and
over since, upon the annual occur
rence of the day whon the child was
drownod. the people of that vicinity
take lanterns and stroll up and down
tho seashore and back away from the
mouth of tho river, each lantern
beare • pretendipg to bo in search for
somot'iiing. Tho custom of lighting
the lanterns gradually spread all over
Chino. Tho peoplo outside of the
| immediate neighborhood of whoro
I the gi d was drowned, however, do
I not go to the trouble of doing mors
j than light and set out their lanterns.

was called as a witness.
