I heard of u kiik m it li hunko patno that
waaworked on a temlerfuot from tho east
who tamo to Kentucky to huyahtock farm
and hto tho breeding of trotters upon
an extensive scale. Ho hud nioru money
than brains, but could not bo Instructed In
the horse) business. Ho taught ft bluo
grass farm and t lun looked around for
stallion to put at the head of his stud. Ho
sought tho advice uf an expert. Tho ex
pert told him ho knew of ft very finely bred
son of tho great Hambletonlau that could
Ihj bought for ". It was a raro bar
gain, and tho tenderfoot thought o too,
Tho expert thought so much of tho animal
that ho would go halves with tho young
breeder. Tho expert left the tenderfoot to
study over tho matter, seeing that tho
game was landed. Then lie proceeded to buy
tlio liorso in question, set-ret ly, for fS.OOO
Tho t ratio was made between tho tender
foot and tho ostensible owner of tho stal
Hon on a basis of :.1.000, tho tenderfoot
putting up fi:,fii0 and tho expert also
putting up $12,500 (so tho tenderfoot be
lieved). Tho result was that tho expert
mado $4,500 clear and still owned one-half
of tho stallion, which he finally disposed of
to bis partner for flo.OOO, leaving him a
clean $19,500 tin the deal. This Is as truo
as gospel, and were I to mention tho name
of tho horse it would bo recognized by ev
ery man who knows tho trotter.
A great many of tho fancy saddlers and
coach horses seen in tho parks in rsew York
and Philadelphia are boutrht tin at the
Kentucky wiles bv shrewd dealers, who
dock their tails, train them a few months
and then ship them east to sell to million
aires. Tho Kentucky horse, however, does
not thrive In tho cities and is soon worn
out. Hobbed of his native bluo grass, ho
gets thin In llesh and unpleasant to look
upon. 1 hen perhaps the same dealer who
took him rast will buy him again at an
enormous reduction, oritur him back to
Kentucky, fatten him up and sell him
again at a profit. A certain Kentucky
dealer sold a fancy gelding in New York a
year ago last fall lor $1.5oo. Tho animal
was ridden to death and broken down by
bad c-aro and a few months later was sold
to tho same dealer for $.'500. The dealer
brought tho horse to Kentucky, turned it
out in a blue grass pasture for several
months, and soon it was fat and sleek
again. Then the hor.-o was shipped back
to New York and sold for $1.200. Cincin

A man who makes a practice of irlving

him on the street has a unique explanation
for his action.

"A woman crouching all day over a

"You'lls(Kn come tothoconclusion that

A Tea Sorting: Machine.
Some Interest has been created by the
announcement that a tea sorting machine
has iH-en invented in India. From tho de
scription given this machine consists of
two angular steel frames measuring 8 feet
long at tho top and l3a fi-et at tho base,
fetanding 2l2 feet, high, placed opposite
each other and staid together two foot
apart. Pot ween tlieso operate with aro
clprocatlng motion two long licht steel
frames, which aro tho sifters, placed ono
alMivo the other, those working on four
oscillating levers, securely fastened to tho
angle steel frame inside at four points by
strong ease hardened pins, upon which
they net from the center. The upper sifter
M firmly secured by trunnion brackets on
tho side to the levers at tho top. and the
lower one in the same way underneath.
Doth sifters have an independent action
and work in oppito directions at 100 to
HO revolutions per minute. The upper
sifter inclines toward tho crank and the
lower one from the crank, ami these aro
fitted with four sizes of meshes, two in
each, the trays being interchangeable slid

Among specialties ruga rdlng birds may
ho mentioned the capon of .Surrey and Sus
sex and the turkey and geeso of Norfolk
and Suffolk. Passing through Kssex, ono
may see whole "herds" of geeso and ducks
in the liUds there fattening without
thought of the future. .Most of these birds,
writes Dr. Doran, are ' foreigners." They
aro Irish by biith, but they aro brought
over by 6teani, in order to bo perfectod by
an English education, and when tho duo
Btato of perfection lias been attained they
are transferred to London.
Dunstable larks aro a dainty much cov
eted liy epicures, and London is annually
supplied from tho country about Dunsta
bio alono with not fewer than 4. 000 dozen
Hut tho enthusiasm with which tho gour
mets speak of these birds Is far exceeded
by tho Germans, who travel many hun
dred miles to Lelpslo niiroly to eat a din
ner of larks. Such is tho slaughter of larks
at tho Leipslc fair that as many as half a
million aro annually eaten, principally by
tho booksellers frequenting that city.
Whittlesey mere, in Huntingdonshire,
now drained, once produced tho finest ruffs
and reeves, a delicacy of which Princu
Talleyrand was extremely fond, his regu
lar allowance during tho season being fvvo
a day. An amusing anecdote is told of a
young curate who had coiuo lip to bo ex
amined for priest's orders and was asked
to dinner at Hishopthorpe by Archbishop
Alarkham. Out of modesty ho eon lined
himself exclusively to tho dish beforo him
till ono of the resident dignitariesobserved
liim. Hut it was too late. The ruffs nml
reeves had vanished to a bird.
A similar talo has been told of another
Jelicato morsel, tho wheat car, popularly
Joslgnatod "tho English ortolan." A
rscotch ofliecr was dinlni! with a certain
I-iord (.icorgo Lennox, then commandant
at Portsmouth, and was placed near a dish
of wheatcars, which was rapidly disappear
ing under his repeated attentions to it.
Lady Louisa Lennox tried to divert his
notico to another dish, but "Na, iia, mil-
leddy, ' was tho reply. 'These weo birdio

The Iteuutiful I Incsse With Which
Kehuked Their Impertinence.
Mrs. .1. .1. Mill, wife of tho now million
airo railroad magnate, Is a person of a
great deal of keenness, and nobody knows
it better than a Washington woman who
fpent a summer out in St. Paul once up
cn a time. This YVashlnaton woman had
met Mrs. Hill and choso to consider her
one of tho newly rich and not to be naniet
In tho same afternoon with tho people of
her set.
Hie Washington woman had a friend
with her for a few days, and In showing
her the Mghts gl the town too?" her to
Hill house. Mrs. Hill was very gracious,
though the Washington woman scarcely
concealed the tact that curiosity alono
prompted lwr visit. She and her friend
were shown all over tho houso and asked
questions that would have been really In
excusable in any ono butn woman of so
! inally she asked to bo shown Mrs. Hill's
jewels. Mrs. Hill's jewels, by tho way,
aro among the finest in tho country, and
Mrs lllll is fond of them with a connois
seur's prido and not with tho vanity of n
woman fond of adornment. Mrs. Hill left
tho room, and in a few moments the jew
els wero shown, hut it was a maid who
shovvid them. Tho hostess did not appear
again, and as the two women went away
the maid asked them politely if they wished
to see anything else.
I'crsonally I think congress ought to
vote Mrs. Hill a medal. Washington Post.
i:nglifth Weavers 1820.
I am SI years of ago and can remember
hand loom wcavirs and weaving ns far
hack ;u liC'O in East Lancashire. I have
n painful recollection of the poverty and
dLstn ss ainoTig hand loom weavers. Our
family consisted of father and mother and
eight children, all dependent upon hand
looms. Urcakfast in our homo was oaten
meal porridgo sweetened with treacle,
eaten with small beer; dinner, meat only
on Sunday, and that chiefly bones boiled
into soup; tho rest of tho week's dinners,
potatoes and oaten cakes, seldom butter
and never cheese; supper, similar to
breakfast. The quantity of theso was stint
ed, so that wo often hail not enough to eat.
As to wages, an ordinary man could not
earn inoro than 10 shillings jht week, and
often he could not procuro enough warp
and weft even to earn that The Idea of
' putting 1 r.otes U-tween slices of bread
and butter" is simply monstrous. In re
spect to tho statement of kindness and
sympathy between employers and em
ployed, 1 cm only recollect grinding pov
erty and cringing dependence, which had
tho effect cf taking away a man's self ro-
