THE CLIFTON CLARION.
"WEDNESDAY, DEC. 22, 1SSG. "The Lost Letter" is the title of a new story! No doubt the hus bnnd found it in last winter's ovor cont. A singer named Litnburger is attracting a great deal of attention in Germany. He ought to add great strength to any company he may join. Stockmen on the Northern bord er, especially in Montana, are mak ing complaint that the Indians are stealing their horses and run ning them over the bordor. A doctor at Flint, Mich., sned a citizen for 5111 for professional services. The citizen alleged that he and the doctor agreod to "wrestle it out," the doctor to have double if he won and nothing if he lost. He lost in the match but thj jury gave hini 530. Henry 3J. Stanley the African explorer, is remarkable for a broad head, very thick through the cheek bones. His hair is still dark and thick, covering the temples. He is of middle size, weighing lib ut ISO pounds. He looks like a man of about 50 years of age. The popular will is in no humor to be trifled with at this time. The people of the country have decided that the reign of corpora tion freebooters shall be brought to an end, and J ndge Gresham's decision is only in the line of pop ular verdict. St Paul Globe. The ladies find the newspapers very interesting nowadays. So many weddings, you know. The average woman, especially if she is single, would rather read an ac count of a wedding than wash dishes. This may sound improba ble, but it is true. Baltimore American. It is urged by some that mission schools aud household training schools for girls should be utilized to turn girls to domestic service rather than to the shops and fac tories. That they will not seek this service is largely a matter of caste, which women can do some thing in their homes to remedy. John M. "A'olff, of Martinsburg, AY. Va., died a few days ago aged 91 years. He not only was the oldest man in the town, but had leen aclmrh member sixty years, had never used tobacco, had naver drank whisky or other intoxicants, aud was never heard to utter an oath. P. D. Armour, the Chicago maat monopolist, said in a recant inter view, that although the strikes in Chicago were ended and the sur face indications of trouble were no lnnsjer prominent, he did not con sider the labor strike there as per manently settled. It is smonlder insr under the surface as hotly as ever. Corporal (to 6oldier) Why is the blado of the, sabro curved in stead of straight? Soldier It is curved in order to give more force to the blow. Corporal Humbug! The sabre is curved so as to fit the scabbard If it was straight how would yon g t it into the crooked scabbard, blockhead ? Ex. Capt Shaw of the London Fire Department, who figures so promi nently in the Campbell divorce case, is not popular with the fire men of America. He has made several visits to this country, but Ins egotistical manners and offen sive comparisons have left a bad impression. He is especially out of favor in Cincinnati and Louis ville. Jay Gould's s;iucy comments upon Jnigo Gresham's last decis ion led the New York Post to sug gest that the Judge "should issue ! an attachment against him for j contempt, and lock him np in jail the next time he ;oes to or through the State of Illinois. Such a movement would, we venture to siy, add more to Gould.s stock of kuowledge and to the Judge's popularity than any decision he could possibly make. A more familiar acquaintance with cur best Judges is, in fact, what Mr. Gould most needs." What 1h In a Ton of Coal. From a ton of ordinary gns coal may be produced 1,500 ponrds of coke, 20 gallons of ammonia water, and 110 ponnds of coal tar. By destructive distillation the coal tar will yield 69 G pounds of pitch, 17 ponnds of creosote, 11 pounds heavy oils, 9.5 pounds of naphtha yellow, 6.3 pounds naphthaline, 4.75 pounds naphthol, 225 pounds alnznrin, 2.1 pounds solvent napht ha, 1.5 pounds phenol, 1.2 ponnds anrine, 1.1 ponnds benzine, 1.1 ponnds aniline, 0.77 of a pound toluidine, 0.1(5 of a pound authra oine, and 0.9 of a pound toluene. From tho latter is obtained the new substance known as sacchar ine, which is 23 times ns sweet as luu best cane sugar. Ceience. TheTYxaa Itraltruian. The following story is told about Mr. Hoxie, and in railroad circles is believed to be a true narrative: H. M. Hoxie, of the Missouri Pacific railroad, was noted in rail road circles for his proneness to give his inforiors good, sound lec tures on the slightest provocation. Hoxie wjis a hard worker, and all who have ever seen him know Low roui d shouldered he was. One day a brakeman called on him with a letter request for a pass in his pocket, leaving the door wide open as ho entered the office, aud wear ing his hat on his head in true brakeman stylo. In a loud voice he called out: 'Is Hoxie in?,, At this the general manager looked up from his desk ami re plied: "Yes, sir, Mr. Hoxie is in." Tho brakeman took the letter out of his pocket, grabbed the corner of the envelope between his thumb and forefinger and sent tho missive spinning aud whirling upon his superior's desk. Hoxie looked up in amazement, and said: "Now, young man, would it not look better for yon, when coming into a gentleman's ofii?e, and es pecially when asking a favor, to remove your hat, wipo your feet, and inquire in a quiet voice: 'Is Mr. Hoxie in?" Tho brakeman looked at tho General Manager a moment, asked for hi letter, got it, went out, clos ed the door, and in a moment marched in again, closed the door softly after him, wiped his feet, put his hat under his arm, and in quired, in the most polite manner possible: "Is Mr. Hoxie, the General Manager, inf "I am Mr. Hoxie," replied the General Manager "What can I do for yon?" "You can go to hell, yon round shouldered son of-a-gunl" replied tho brakeman. "I don't want none of your favors I'm from Texas !" Exchange. A Biz Hteer. The Colorado State Board of Agriculture have sold the big Gal loway steer Jumbo, to the Denver Packing company for 250, the hide to go to Mr. Matthews, of Kansas City, who presented the animal to tho International Range association. Jumbo was turned over to the Agricultural college, and there efforts have boen made by Professor Blount to add more weight to the mountain of flesh, but it was found that very little could be done in that direction. Last June J umbo weighed 2,102 pounds. On the 30th of Novem ber he weighed 2.152. Most of this gain was in September, and Octo ber, tho gain in November being only two pouuds. During the five months the animal consumed 1, C30 pouuds of chop feed; 1,783 pounds of hay; 3121 ponnds of roots; a total of 6.838 pounds. I'reniurut levrlandH Fhrascs. No person whose official station has given him opportunities to ad dress the public has added so many memorable phrases to the language as President Cleveland. We do not mean sentences like "Let no guilty man escape," or '"Public office is a public trust," but merely those incomplete but happy combinations of words which, whether for aptitude or od dity, stick in the public mind. Wo believe that Mr. Cleveland's con tributions of this kind are four: "Offensive partisanship.'' "Pernicious activit)-." "Innocuous desuetud?." "Ghoulish Glee." Mr. Cleveland seems to have al most monopolized the faculty for this sort of expression. No other President has approached lii:n Mr. Tilden prod need one remark able phrase only, "Futile dalli ance," but we do not recall any thing similar in the utterances of Lincoln, Grant, Garfield or Arthur. New York Sun. To TnUe (Int ink. To take ink out of linen dip the spot in pnra melted tallow, then wash out the tallow, and the ink will come out with it. This is said to bo unfailing. Milk will re move ink fron linen or colored muslins, when acids would be ruin ous, by soaking tho goods until tho spot is very faint and then rnbbing and riusing in cold water. An inkstand was turned over upon a white tablecloth; a servant threw over it a mixture of salt and pep per plentifully and all traces of it disappeared. Or you may try the following: Take ono ounce of sal-ammoniac, ono ounce salts of tartar, wine bottle of cold soft water. Well mix tho above, wet the linen thoroughly with the mix ture, nnd repeat the process-till tho spots disappear. Dr. Finlay, a physiologist living in the West Indies, reports that the germs of yellow-fever and other contagions diseases aro car ried liv mnsnnitoes. and the lanid spread of such calamities is thus accounted for in his opinion. Current Fun. Every miser should have a chest protector. Tho greatest wag ovef known A woman's tongna Doctors say that diseases can be communicated by kissing. Lovo, for instance. A cyclone is like three school girls walking abreast it don't turn out for anything. It is easier to lug a heavy shot gun ten hours through an iupene trable swamp than to put up a clothes-line. A Michigan woman kicked a bear to death a few days ago, and now her husband never contradicts any thing she says. Talking is said to be conducive to longevity. Silence kills some women. It is the lack of silence which finishes tho men. A vicar's little daughter on visit ing another vicarage, asked, "What does your pa want a study for? He doesn't smoke."
