They Bad Fallen Oat Dnr a wife gaia iih and a cant Harder. "The queerest feud I ever heard of," said il. C Allen, the well known sportsman, "is one that I encountered while fauuting in southern Humboldt county. I noticed our guide carried a repeating rifle, a big revolver and a 1 ; x i , , .. juine nan as long as ma leg. lie pro ceeded with the greatest caution and appeared to be on guard continually. I knew there were no hostile Indians in that country, and my curiosity was aroused. Finally I asked him what the trouble was. " 'Oh, I yoost look out for some fel low,' he replied in his Swedish dialect " 'What's the trouble, anyway? I in quired. " 'Oh, nnttin much. MayUo a pig man mit'a goon watch me pretty close too.' "'Who is he? " 'Oh, din is my brudder. Las' time I fix him plenty, you bet. He come back now, und maybe he fix me. ' "Inquiry developed the fact that the brothers had settled in Humboldt some years ago, and our guide, who was mar ried, had left a pretty sister-in-law in Sweden. The brothers talked the matter over, and finally agreed that the mar ried one should send for the girl, and when she reached this country be would give nra om wile to his brother and take his sister-in-law. "The girl arrived in due time, but she was so much prettier than the un married brother had expected that he was loath to accept his brother's cast off wife. Finally he married the girl, and then refused to compromise the breach of contract by paying what his brother had expended in getting her to this coast. A quarrel followed, and the guide pinked liis brother in, the shoul der with a rifle ball and lauded him in the hospital for three mouths. The oth er vowed vengeance, and they do little now but watch the mountain trails, fully prepared to renew hostilities at a second's notice.' San Francisco Post What la a Parody? Tho essential conditions of parody are commonly understood to be brevity and wit It must also closely follow its original, and that original iunst be fair ly familiar. That it must dispover oc cult resemblances in things apparently unlike ; that it must depend for its suc cess upon contrast aud surprise ; that it must be ablo to leap lightly over that little chasm which separates the ridicu lous from tho sublime ; that there must be in it what Dr. Johnson calls a dis cord in ccccors, is but to say that its au thor must be a wit. A witty distortion or displacement of ideas or words con-' stitntes the common merit of parody in verse or proso. "The Epi.stolas Obscurorum Viro rum," "Don Quixote," Fielding's "Jo seph Andrews," in"-which that pious footman is modeled on the insufferably tedious "Pamela" of Richardson; Thackeray's "Codlingsby," by D. Shrowsborry, Esq., and his "George de Barnwell," by Sir E. L. B. L., Bart. ; Bret Harte's "Condensed Novels," Ber naud'fl "Strapmore" and "The New Sandford and 3ierton" all these are as undoubtedly parodies as the parodies of chivalry iu tho"Ricciardetto" of Forti gorri aud the "Secchia Rapita" of Tas soni; of ancient mythology iu the "Scheruo degli Dei" of Braociolini ; of heathen and Christian gods alike in the "Guerre des Dienx"of Parny ; of Virgil's JEueid iu Holberg's "Pierre Pors" and Langcndyke's "Eneas in zyn Zoudags Pak;" of Milton in "The Splendid Shilling" of Philips, which said Steele, without perhaps the necessary knowl edge to support his averment, is the "finest burlesque in any language," and of many other poots in the "Reject ed Addresses," -which, said Jeffrey, with more exact judgment, "indicate talent to whkh I do not know where to look for a parallel." Quarterly Re view. The Largeat Oak Board. " The largest oak board ever sawed was ripped from the body of a mammoth tree which formerly stood near Scotts burg, Ind. The tree was 27 feet in cir cumference, and was said to be the largest perfectly ronnd oak in the state. It was purchased by H. Hermann, the New York lumlwr dealer, for the sum of $75, and was cut down aud sawed into boards. The largest of these boards was 10 inches thick, 5'feet 2, inches wide at the butt aud 5 feet exactly at the top. It was 85 feet long, and re quired the combined strength of two yoke of oxen and eight horses a whole day to move it 1 miles on a "broad tread" wagon from the sawmill to the depot. Lumbermen say that this was the largest oak board ever sawed in America. St. Louis Republic. Dae to Imagination. Some writers of sea songs were poor sailors. "I'm on the Sea! I'm on the Sea !" wrote Barry Cornwall as if life on the oceau wave wero a joy. But it was his imagination that wrote the scng, for he was tho sickest of sailors and detested the sea. "I had it from Mrs. Proctor," 6ays SuntU-y, the singer, "who told me that she used to tease him, humming a strain of his jovial sea song as he lay, a very log, huddled in shawls and a tar paulin, crossing the channel, with bare ly sufficient animation left to utter, My dear, don't!' " No place is tunneled so much as the rock of Gibraltar, where there are up ward of TO miles of underground pas sages. . When a man has not a good reason for doing a thing, he has one good reason for letting it alone. -Thomas Scott Eppiug forest is the largest public recreation ground in the world. In Egypt the natives believe . that crocodiles cry and moan like men in distress in order to attract and make a prey ox the unwary. - WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20. 1895. SONG FOR THE GUITART I grieve to Bee these tears Ixjng strangers to thine eye These jewels that fond years For me could never buy. 1 Weep, weep and give thy heart relief. . I grieve, but 'tis not for thy grief. Not for these tears they were Another's ere they fell Bat those that never stir The fountain where they dwell. " I'd, smile though thou shouldst weep a sea . Were but a single tear for me! Robert U. Johnson in Century. Weight of Our Atmosphere. It has been ronghly calculated that the weight of our atmosphere is about one ton to every square foot of the earth's surface; 25,000,000 tons per square mile, or C, 000,000,000,000,000 tons on the total of 200,000,000 square miles which go to make the total of the earth's ara. Again, according to the estimates of the authority for the above, a cubic mile of air weighs about 10,000,000,000 pounds. This mass when electrified, or put in motion by other forces, develops cyclonic power equal to 4,000,000,000,000 "foot tons" of energy. If you wish to know why the tornado (cyclone) is usually so de structive, figure on the fact that the force of such storms is generally equiv alent to more than 2,000,000,000,000, 000 horsepower t The total horsepower of all the engines now working in the world is only 49,000,000, and of all those in America, both locomotives and stationary engines, only 7,500,000. Compare 7,500,000 with 2,000,000, 000,000,000 and see how insignificant it looks ! Is it any wonder that the cv- clono, "the rushing demon of the air," leaves ruin and destruction in its path? St Louis Republic Poetry and Mnsic It must be remembered that snntr is n combination of two arts, in which each must exercise its own f miction nnH mud respect the office of the other. In the ideal lyric, sucn as tliose of Heine and Schnmann, the poet draws an outline which tho musician colors, and whpr they are in perfect sympathy there will De periect unity or result ilut if the one goes on to complete the picture, if he prescribes every nuance and everv do- tail, there is no collaboration possible, for nothing is left to the other but com plete subservience. There will never be an adequate setting of the "Bugle Song" in - i ne raucess, not because the verse is too musical, for such a nloa is a con tradiction in terms, but beuansn thn poem is too full. What is the composer to ao witn sucn a consummate line as : Clow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, Shall he follow the snscestion of tlin words? He is but echoing the echoes. Shall he disregard it? He lias misaod the poet's meaning. The whole field has ucen occupied already, aud if he claim a share of the tillage he must take sta tion as a serf. Macniillau's Magazine. . .An Effective ile. A young French advocate in the course of his address to the court flourished about his hand in such a manner as to show off a magnifioent diamond ring. He was young, good looking and was pleading for a lady of quality who de manded a separation from her husband. The husband, who happened to be pres ent, interrupted him in the middle of a period and turning to tho indues ex claimed theatrically, "'My lords, you win appreciate tne zeal winch JJ. JC is displaying against me and the sin cerity of bis argument when yon are . ..... . iniormeu mat the diamond ring he wears is the very one that I placed on my wife's finger on the day of that un ion he is so anxious to dissolve!" The court was struck with astonishment and rose immediately. The cause was lost, and the advocate never had another. To add to the poignancy of the catastrophe, the husband's insinuation had no foun dation whatever in fact. San Francisco Argonaut Combination Wouldn't Work.
