If one interferes with two dogs that fire lighting and is bitten by one of them he cannot recover damages unb Bs he shows that he in the exercise of due care the full bench of the supreme court lately so held, according to the Bo tun fYangcript, in the ease ot Arte lUUh Hodgson against Charles H. Hndjcf-ou and William T. Tat»l> y The three parties live in Ded-> ham. The plaintiff’ was out riding accompanied by his two dogs. A shepherd dog owned by the defen dant followed the carriage and got into a tight with one of the plain tiffs dogs. Tie went up to the dogs and seized the defendant’s dog when it turned on him and bit his hand The suit was brought und r public statutes, chapter 102, section 03, and the plaiutiff claimed he was not obliged to prove at tin tiial that he was in the exercise of due cure. The court holds that he was und says : “In the case at bar the plaintiff’ voluntarily submitted himself to danger and we have no doubt that the ruling of the court below was right. Another dog-bite case to call forth an expounding of the law is t hat of Jesse O Boulester, of Rock ville, against Charles W. Parsons, of Walpole. The bite in this case vas inflicted upon a horse, which which died in consequence and the plaintiff sued for his loss. jTlu plaintiff’s brother was driving an express wagon, drawn by a pair of horses, along a country road; and m- -th« rear of this w&gou was another horse attached to a singh wagon. The defendant's dog ra.i out of his master’s yard and bit the horse attached to the tingle vehicle. The defendant contended it was negligence on the part of the plaintiff to lead a horse harnessed in a wagon behind as was this one, and thereupon the plaintiff re quested the court to instruct the jury in substance as follows: “A man has a right to lead a horse in the way and mannej described, and the mere fact that he was so lead ing a horse is not such evidence of negligence as would preclude the plaiutiff from recovering in this action for the bite of the dog.” The judge at the trial refused so to rule, and submitted the question to the jury whether the method of traveling adopted was negligent and was such as to induce an at tack by the dog The jury found for the defendant, and to the re fusal of the court to rule as above the plaintiff excepted. The full court sustains the plain tiffs exceptions and sava: “We are of opinion that the ruling requested should have been given in substance. While the doctrine of contriubting negligence has been often said to apply to an action on the public statutes, chapter 102, section 93, and we have no doubt it does apply where the plaintiff’ incites or pro vokes a dog, and it may be in other cases, the doctrine has no applica tion. to the case at bar. The lead ing of a horse behind a wagon was simply a condition and not in any sense a contributing oausedf the injury. * * * To hold that the question whether leading a horse behind a wagon should be sub mitted to tno jury as evidence of negligence on the part of the plaintiff in inducing an.attack by a dog, would render it to submit to the jury £he whether the color 0£ the h*rse or of Ihe wagon, or of the clothes of th% driver might not have induced an attack The law does not pay this renp ct to the oh iracteris ics or p -ejudicfS of dogs.” All for a Postage Stamp. Thv rule of the Dead Letter of ti e is to mak* extraordinary effor o return all missent letters which are found to contain money. But b ind obedience to this rule is the basis of an entertaining s’ory. A boy in Skokomisu reservation, which is about three miles from the poscof rice of Union City, State of Wash ington, wrote a letter to his brother at Sea beck some time ago, inclos ing in it a small auui of money. He also wrote on the envelope hat if it should not be delivered in P’opor tiaas it wax to bn returned m the writer. His brother did not call for it and it returned to U mon City. The Postmaster there had not heard of the boy, and on inquiry f illed te find him. Accord ingly he eerrt the letter to the Dead Let ter office. On arrival hero it was ope..ed, and it hid money in it; it was re turned to Union City with a long letter of instructions to find th*s writer if possible. After inquiry the boy was at 1 ist found, and was requested to go in person, claim the letter and receipt for if, and the Postmaster had to go through as much red tape as if the letter con sumed SI,OOO.

On the wall of the south aisle of Hereford Cathedral, accessible to the visitor at all times, is preserved the celebrated “Mappa Mundi” (date circa 1282-1300.) This is tbt work of an ecclesiastic, who is •supposed to be represented in the right-hand corner on horseback, at tended by his page and greyhounds This is said to be one of the most remarkable monument of its kind in existence, b ung the largest and most interesting of all the old maps duawn on a single sheet of stout vellum. The world is here repre sented as round, surrounded by th* ocean. At the top of tho map (the east) is represented Paradise, with its river and tree; also the eating of the forbidden fruit and the expul sion of our first parents. Above is a remarkable representation 'of the day of judgment, with the Virgin Vlary interceding for the faithful, who arc seen rising from their graves and beiug led within the walls of heaven. The map is chiefly tilled with ideas taken from ancient historians. I here are .numerous figures of towns, animals, birds and tish, with grotesque creatures.

President Juillery congratulated the committee upon th* large num ber of acceptances that bad been received in response to its invita—. ti..*n and laid stress upon the feci that this would be the first inter national congress of the newspapi r press that has been held in Europe. The decision of the organization committee to exclude all discussion in reg ird to race, nationality, re- , ligion and politics had, he said,been received with especial favor, and he wan sangnine that the main ob ject of the gathering that of dis— cussing methods whereby the status of the press generally might be im proved—would be materially ad vanced. He referred in apprecia tive terms to the fact that a num- her of editors from the United St» tes who are now touring. Europe as a part of editorial excursions would participate in the proceeding of the Congress. It was decided to make the question of a formation of a union between the press asso ciations of every country repre sented in the conference the special order for the opening day.
