HOW SHE MADE IT PAT.
bharp Practice by a Shrewd Manipulator ef the Typewriter. Clara Bell, in a letter, says : Amazed at certain disclosures, I sought out a poor girl who had been a type-v-;er and whom I had often bcfrieuded, and asked her whether all that I had learned about (he business had come within her experience also. You may imagine my astonishment at her reply: "Well, Jliss Clara," she said, "lam one of the oldest hands in the business, and I used to wonder, as I saw the turn things were taking, how .long it would be before I would suffer from the de moralization of my calliDg. The trouble came, but I found it to profit. My em ployer saw the same danger in the busi ness that I did, and began to lose re spect for me and for himself, so that after keeping me at work here in the office late at night for several nights he suddenly kissed me. I sprang to my feet and fared him. 'I hav3 expected this,' said I, 'and I have been prepared. You can now take your choice of ex plaining your conduct to my brother or paying me $Z0 a week down for a year in advance, with a written apology and a promise to respect yourself and treat me with the utmost repect as long as I remain here.' He was thoroughly frightened and ashamed, and obeyed my command. I had been getting twelve dollars before that. He treated me with frigid respect, and turned over all his business with me to his chief clerk. The chief clerk in turn caught the general infection, and one evening made love to me. The next day I noti fied the lawyer that I had been affront ed and demanded the chief clerk's dis missal. His reply was: 'Miss .Tenks, I cannot discharge him, but I will pro tect you. Your salary is now twenty five dollars a week. Stop a moment. please.' He then rang the bell, called in the chief clerk, and said: " 'You have forgotten yourself, sir, and the character I bear, i ou must apologize to Miss Jenksor leave my em ploy. After that yon can arrange in my presence whether Miss Jenks shall call you to an accounting with her brother or whether the matter shall be buried and forgotten.' "The chief e'erk ate humble pie as you never saw a man do it in your life, and I promised not to speak to my brother, so that all bow goes swimming ly, and I am wearing silk every day in stead of Sunda s. The best joke of it is that the only brother I ever had died when I was a babv, and I am all a'one in New York, without a relative nearer than Kentucky." The Trobleni Solved. There is a "character" connected with on of the livery stables in tins city who has on more than one occasion been the subject of anathemas from the Dcseret News. His offense consists in driving tourists about the town to show them the sights of Zion, point out the double households, and in his own inimitable way tell the history of not a few of the chief polygamists whose conduct render Utah odoriferous in the nostrils of Christendom. "Now, 'ere," he remarks to the atten tive tourists, "is where Helder lives with two sisters-for his wives." Various comments from the strangers follow, when one generally makes the observation that the only redeeming feature of the th'ng is that the polyga mist in that case manages to ho'd two wives with only one mother-in-law to make things interesting, Then the driver chips in with the soothing infor mation that the possibilities of matri mony in Zion without the element of mother-in-law cutting tiny figure, is an accomplished fact, and place Zion on a plane far above the civilized world in its dealings with the question of "What shall we do with our mother-in-law ?" "Now, in our church," he proceeds, "we get rid of 'er in many cases by marryinsr of 'er. 'Ere is where Helder lives. 'E married mother and daughter, and solved the problem. 'Er is where Helder used to live. 'E married one old ooman with two daugh ters, "and when they got to be thirteen bV SHeeu years 'e married them. too. Poor man, 'e fell off a load of 'ay a few years ago and died. They are widdies now." He remarked recently: "Oh, it's a fact, I don't tell these tourists all I know, but I gives 'em enough to chew, , and I could give the hofficers some on it, but I won't, it might spoil my stock in trade I knows 'em all." And then he proceeded with a list as long as a hoe-handle, of this fellow who married his step-daughter, and that fellow who married his wife's grandmother, and the other one who married three generations of females in one family. "You see they wants to cut me otf, is why the priesthood has paid $30,000 for a livery stable. It is the tourists they are after." Salt Lais t ribune. Tickled the Colonel's Vanity. 'Of the late M. Labiche, one of the authors of the comedy "Le Voyage de M. Perrichon," it is related that while he was its mayor in 1870 the village of Sauvigny was entered by a Prussian cavalry "regiment, the colonel of which demanded rations and a levy of $30,000. Labiehe refused to give either. "Then have you a carriage?" "Yes." "Get it ready and follow me to the com mandant." "What for?" "To be judged, condemned, and shot! Hurry up." The carriage was brought, and they set out. Labiche was smoking a cigar. As they . drove he offered the colonel another, and then said: "31. le colonel, if any one five years ago had told me you would do this, I would have been incredulous." "Why, man." said the colonel, "you are dreamins. 1 now se you for the first time." "Pardon, for the second time. I had the pleasure of dining with you, and pouring out wine foi you too!" "Where?" At the German embassy. I had the honor of sitting at your right. We conversed like friends. Your amia bility charmed me. I exclaimed to mj gelf: 'What a fine fellow! He will make a mark in Berlin society!" "But it was not I." "No! Then it must have been your brother. You have the same beautiful mustache, the elegance, the same dis tinction, the same Greek profile. Come mv dear colonel! no false modestv; wasn't it youj" The Prussian mused. "And you say your town cannot support my regiment?'' "Alas, no!" "Your word of honor?" "The most sacred," Back went the carriage, and the regi ment marched on, and the colonel, press ing Labiche's hand in friendly faiewcll said : "It was I. But devil a bit of you should I have remembered." Chicago Timet. A Pitiful Appeal. The Prison Press of Waupun, Wis., whose editr.rs are convi ts, makes the following appeal and gives advice like this : Some very bad reports come to us frequently, concerning some of the "boys" who have been discharged, to the etlect that the first place wnicn tney visit in the city, is a saloon where they "fill up"' with whisky and other "slush, " and proceed, within an hour after their discharge, to make a disgusting show of themselves upon the city streets. Such conduct on the part of those who have had such a bitter lesson in the imme diate pist, is most, shameful, and a dis grace even to their already blighted character, and the weight which hunga upon, and helps to hold down the lives of th' se who have a desire and aims toward a higher and better life. We hope to hear of fewer of these shameful scenes in the future. Boys, when you leave here, shun the dram shop; or if you ti ust and will drink, tet a bottle or jug and go out in the woods somewhere, aloDC, out of sight, and drink your fill; but in the name of the "shadow of decency'-do not follow the example of 'hose of whom we (speak above, and liiia cast even a darker cloud up n the names and lives of those whom you leave behind. Hew1io tumbles from the pinnacle of lofty ideas ha a severs fall, THE OLD WOMAN'S WARNING. An Old Story in Real Life Retold. In 1875 there lived in central Iowa a family by the name of Robinson, con sisting of father, mother, and two chil dren, the latter being boys nine and twelve years old respectivelv. Robin son was a well-to-do farmer, well thought of by the- neighbors, and a Christian man. There was, therefore, no one who questioned the truth of the incident he related. He had a brother in Des Moines who was taken very ill, and sent for him, and he left home ex pecting to be gone at least a week. He had no hired man, but the boys were old enough to care for the stock, and the wife was not a woman to borrow trouble. Robinson was in perfect health when he left home, and there was no reason to feel anxious for those he left behind. He reached Des 3Ioines of a Saturday night. His brother was very low, but it was believed that the crisis had passed and that he was mending. On Sunday night, at midnight, ths watcher who n d been at the bedside during the first part of the night called Robinson ana retired, ine patient was resting easily, and the watchers had only to give him medicine once every hour. He gave it at 1 o'clock, and fifteen minutes later, while he was spemingly as wide awake as ever in his life, a little, old woman suddenly entered the room. The sick man was in the parlor bed room, and the woman came from the sitting room, the door of which stood open. Robinson bowed to her, and while somewhat surprised at her rjres ence, he supposed it was all right, tak ing ner lor a neighDor wno had come in She looked to be 55 years old, was very small lor a woman, and years afterward he could describe her dress and features. She stopped in the centre of the room, and Robinson tip toed over to her ana said : "The doctor thinks he is much bet ter." "You must go home," she brusquely remarKea in answer. "Who me?" "Yes.". "But I came to help take care of James. " "lou must be home bv ten o'clock to-morrow night?" said the old woman. "Why?" She beckoned him further awav from the bed and then whispered: "To-morrow night, before midnight, three bad men will enter your house to roo ana murder. iou must go nome . "How did you learn this?" he asked. knowing well enough that she would not joke him at such a time, but unable to credit her with all seriousness. 'They poisoned vour do? to-niedit." she answered, and they are now sleeping in ine Darn. There are two of theni now; to-morrow night there will be three. If you love your wife and child reu do not tarry here," "5ut but " Go go!"8he commanded, backing out of the room. "Charles, who is that woman?" asked the sick man, and Robinson turned to the bed to find his brother wide awake. I do not know." I saw her in the room just before you came in. She came and leaned over me. She must be a stranarer." Robinson passed into the sittinsroom. and from thence to the kitchen, but the woman had disppeared. He called his brother's wife, but she had no such person on her list of acquaintances. The doors were all locked and the windows down, and it did not seem possible that she could have left the house, though a thorough search failed to find the least trace of her presence. It was two o'clock when the search was abandoned, and at that hour the sick man was amazinarlv better. He not only declared that he had seen the woman and heard all she said, but he stoutly insisted that his brother should go home as soon as pos sible. At teu o'clock in the forenoon Robinson left for home. The nearest railroad point to his farm was seven miles, and as he had to wait at a junction for several hours he could not reach home before teu o'clock in the e vcmn?. hen he reached the station at which he must leave the railroad he told the story to the Sheriff, and a team was hired and six well-armed men went out with him. It was half-past 10 when they reached the house. They approached it across the fields, and came up just as two men had entered by an open kitchen window, while the tnird was on guard outside. The trio were speedily captured, and then several points corroborative of the little old woman's declaration were picked up. The family dog had died suddenly, with every evidence of having been poisoned. Two strange tramps had been noticed hanging about the p'ace the day before, and two of the arrested parties were identified as the fellows. They had slept in the barn, and they had been joined by a third. They intended to rob the house and steal a horse and buggy to get away with. In hopes of shortening his term of imprisonment at the expense of his comrades, one of the trio turned States evidence. He said it was understood between them that of 3Irs. Robinson and the children awoke thev were to be killed. " - Now comes another singular feature of the case. At 11 o'clock of the night on which Robinson reached home, his wife was sitting up with him, and, as he was resting very easy, she fell asleep. The little old woman reappeared, sat down, and said to the patient: "You i brother reached home in time. I am glad to see you getting better so fast." With that she was gone, and none of the parties I have be n sp?aking of ever saw her again. People who know the brothers well are firmly convinced that they saw and heard just what they al lege, and those who scoff at the story find it hard to explain why Robinson started for home as he did, and arrived just in time to arrest three hardened fellows who were promptly sent to State prison. lie Made His Bugle Talk. "There were some of your people," said an ex Confederate, who made a bugle talk. There was one bugler with a cavalry regiment of Sherman's advance column that had a way of making his bugle give a sort of exultant whoop af ter he would give the regular call or order, and we of the rear guard on the other side heard that so often that it be came as familiar almost as a cradle song. On one occasion in 1804 a lot of us entered a stalwart Confederate neighborhood, ;We had been there before, and Kad' found everybody en thusiastic in our support. When we came in this time the old grocery keep er treated us a little coolly. Each one of us had from $20,000 to I-jO.OOO in Confederate money, and we decided to make a good many purchases. Wc bought fri ely, but when we came to pay for the articles the old gentleman in formed us that he would take nothing but gold, silver, or greenbacks. This was good evidence to us that the Con federacy was on its last legs. We tried to argue the old fellow out of it, but it was always gold, silver or greenbacks. We retired for consultation, and finally determined to pronounce him a traitor to the cause and confiscate all his things. We announced our purpose to him and offered to make payment at high prices in Confederate money for whatever we appropriated. His reply was that he would take nothing but gold, silver, or greenbacks, and we proceeded to con fiscate. Wo found under the floor of his grocery surface indications of a buried treasure, and digging down we unearthed quite a number of hams. We were in the act of parceling these out to the men at $50 a ham when there came upon our cars the sound of our Tankee friend with the bugle. Af ter he had sounded the regulation call he gave that playful, exultant whoop I speak of. We dropped the hams and broke for the woods. The worst of it was we left all our Confederate money piled up on the table, and we judged by the way that the old fellow made his bugle jingle that nitr'ht that he had the most of it in his pot kcW'Vhicagn Inter Ocean, THE ASPINWALL SriDEKS. Big and Pugnacious Insects Which Some times Come to America. "Look out for the tramps!" said a iruit dealer. The Telegraph manwas admiring the bright buff color of a bunch of bananas. when a big ugly spider crawled out and ambLed along on the counter. He was a bundle of dark brown fuzz about the size of your thumb, into which were stuck several long, black legs. He was a tramp all the way from As- pinwati. And like a tramp who had stolen i ride under a freight car on a brake beam, his legs seemed cramped from tne long -journey in the crevices ot a bunch of bananas, was at a loss where thousands of miles friendless, for people The poor fellow to go. lie was from home and do not take kind ly to big, ugly spiders.

They come otten in bananas, but we generally man age to kill them. L p at the old store one made his escape and made his home under the counter. Then another es caped, and for a long time we lost sight of them. One day we found a web un der the counter, and on looking closer wc found the home of the two tramps. They had raised a large family of spiders. and they were the cutest little things you would care to see. They ran nimbly into the web if you made a motion to strike them, and 'many a day we have watched them simply for the amusement. They caught every fly that came within range, and now and then a bug happened within their reach and varied their bill of fare. Although we knew they were dangerous pets we did not disturb them, for the reason that they seemed to be in dustrious fly-catchers and were never in clined to sting. One afternooa a new clerk saw one big fellow run around a corner of the counter, and as he had never seen a spider of such enormous size, he imagined that to allow it to go at large was equivalent to turning a titier loose, and he killed the pet. The others ran out, and for about an hour the new clerk had about as much as he could stand up to killing spiders." "Do they ever bite?" "Yes, but it is a rare occurrence. They fight like wildcats and they are high-tempered, but they never trouble anybody unless aroused and teased. Although there are millions of bunches of bananas brought to, this country every season, and many a thousand spi ders steal their way across with them, you never heard of anyone being stung. They are very peculiar things and differ widely in their habits from the common spider of this country, which makes a web like the centrepiece of a rising-sun crazy quilt. They make a kind of nest and then spread out lines of web in every direction. On this single line, which is as small as a silken thread, they run with ease, hanging to it with their long, flexible legs. When danger threatens they have a way of drawing in the line, and, huddling together, await the attack of the foe. When thus disturbed they make prodigious leaps and arrange in a circle around the nest, which they seem to guard with jealous care. Then, when provoked, they run all over the attacking party. They are game, and put up an ugly fight." MiKon Tel-egraph. Com 3 Easy, Go Easy. J ames D. Walker ten years ago was a member of the bonanza firm, and his check was good for $500,000, or a mil lion, at any bank in the country. Then Flood and Fair bought him out, and Walker opened a broker's office under the Nevada Bank, in San Francisco, and did all the business of his former part ners. In these times Flood, Fair and 3Iackey were on the top notch of specu lation. They were swinging the market at their own sweet will, and making or breaking the thousands who were bat tling with the fierce tide of stock gam bling. Alexander Austin, or "Sandy," as his friends used to call him, had just served his term as Tax Collector, and went in with Walker. How thev did mike thiners boom! The bookkeeper cot $400 a month, and had a sumptuous lunch served every day in a large room in the rear of the office at the expense of the firm. Their expenses were enor mous, but so was their business. The partners were clearing $20,000 a month, but they were standing on the brink of a precipice. Flood remarked that other and outside brokers were manipulating certain stocks precisely as his own brokers. This would never do, so he called a consultation, and informed the Walker firm that this sort of thing would not do, Jhat there was a traitor in the camp somewhere, and that unless he was detected and fired their relations could not continue. Close and earnest investigation was made, but without avail. Then came a transaction of more than ordinary importance, but to the intense disgust of the bonanza firm it was apparently foreseen and anticipated by these same outside brokers, kept posted, apparently, by some traitor in the Walker-Austin camp. Then the bonanza people changed their broker, and from that hour the fortunes of Walker & Co. began to decline. Mat ters grew worse and worse. Austin committed suicide. Walker sold a magnificent mansion in Oakland, which cost him close on $500,000, to prop up the waning glory of the swell firm. At last it was a clean case of bust, and I don't believe 3Ir. Walker to-day could put his hand on $200. He discovered, when too late, that the- high-priced bookkeeper was the traitor. He sold his employers, but no luck ever came of his treachery, and he is to-day keeping books at $50 a month for a Hebrew clothes dealer in Portland, Oregon. The Strawberry Boycotted.

Gardner of Poquonnoc Ridge, who dwells at the Poquonnoc estuary, in which oysters are raised on poles stuck in the mud, is try' ing hard to do a paying business catch ing porpoises. All fishermen try to catch a porpoise if chance offers, because it is a valuable fish, but no one ever tried to make porpoise catching a vocation until Gardner undertook to do it. Hi9 neigh bors laugh at mm. A year ago or more Capt. Gardner htted out a couple of saiiDoais, nireu a crew ot eleven men. had a coarse seine made a half mile in lengtu or longer. Ana sailed away to the porpoise grounds. Nearly all salt water harbors and estuaries are frequent ed oy tne nsn, wnicn come putung and tumbling into them in chase of their prey all kinds of small fish. But the best ground is Coecles Harbor at Shelter Island. In the waters of this harbor hundreds of porpoises are sometimes seen, and a wild and rolling scene it is, with acres of the sleek, black animals tipping over and over like floating carboys, as they plunge after their food. To a landsman they seem to be doing it for fun, but it is serious fun to them and to smaller fish. Shoals of mackerel, herring, bony fish, and, in the season, porgies, are their game, and the sharp jaws of the porpoise, each armed with forty-five or fifty teeth, do murderous work that stains the sea with crimson. Often mackerel and herring shoals are driven nearly on the beaches by their remorse less pursuers, or up broad rivers almost to the head of tide water. Porpoises have been seen in the Thames River as far north as Kitemaug, seven or eight miles above the city, in pursuit of flying bony hsh. Capt. Gardner sailed into Coecles harbor one day last summer, dropped his big seine overboard, and next morning his men rolled half a dozen fat porpoises upon the beach. Several other casts were made, but none were as successful as Capt. Gardner had antici pated that they would be. All through the summer he fished for porpoises, but with only partial success. The big fel lows broke through his stout netting and away the whole shoal rushed out through the opening. They toppled over his seine and wound themselves up in it, and so made it practically useless to stop the escape of the other fish until the snarl was straightened. Capt. Gardner lost money trying to catch porpoises last season, but he went to work again this spring with redoubled energv. He has not been successful vet; the catches have not remunerated him for the expenses of the trip. A week or more ago his crew had two days of fine luck, taking nine porpoises on one day and twenty-five on the next. So not yet have Capt. Gardner's efforts decided the question whether it will pay to syste matically hunt porpoises, but he means to continue the business. The biggest porpoise he has caught weighed 800 pounds. The little ones weigh not more than 50 or 100 pounds. Not a particle of the porpoise is wast ed in preparing it for the market. First the skin is taken off, which is superior even to aligator hide for carriage leather and for shoes. The skin is nearly an inch thick, but it is planed down until it becomes nearly translucent. The blubber is tried out, yielding an oil equal to the best sperm oil for lubricat ing, and two other grades are made from the head ana jaw, both being superior to that from the blubber. The jaw oil is used by jewelers and watchmakers, who pay at the rate of $15 a gallon for it. 1 he meat is cut out and sold to those who are fond of it. There is a tradition that anciently it was so highly esteemed that it was in demand for the table of royalty. In the times of Queen Elizabeth it was served to the nobles of England with bread crumbs and vine gar. It is a chief dainty to the Green landers. It is dark colored and bloody. The carcass of the porpoise is thrown in with menhaden, and a little more oil is tried out of it, after which it becomes a fertilizer. An average porpoise is worth in all about $40. The trap commonly used to catch them with is a large net of strong rope which is stretched over a large area of water, lnr beer barrels being at tached to the edes at interval. liy nn nppara tus worked from the hore the barrels are forcibly submerged while the por poises are coming into the feeding grounds, and when a number of them are directly over the net the strain on the barrels is relaxed and they rise to the surface behind the fish, which find themselves imprisoned in a pen. It costs about $3,000 to equip a first class trap. The Negro as a I'Ishi rman. The recipients daily of a varied and bountiful, if not dainty, supply of food, the catfish in the St. John's River in Forida, says a local correspondent, grow to immense size, and attain a weight of from ten to fifty pounds. The average along the wharves is about fifteen pounds. After Sambo has caught one of these large dandies of the deep he is not par ticular as to whether he catches another one that day or not. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof, also the good to him. The day's quota is provided. The sun is warm and inviting. He feels its genial rays penetrating all the nerves and tissues of his being. The monoton ous lap of the waves against the piers invites to slumber. So, tying the line to his big toe, which looks like the head of a loggerhead turtle, he falls over on his back and is soon fast asleep. Gradually his slumber becomes more profound. His mouth opens and remains in that position. It is invaded by an army of flies, green, blue and black. . urious flies they are, too. They ex amine each separate tooth carefully and leisurely. Some take observations from the upper tongue, others venture as far as the palate. One more reckless than his brethren, becomes entangled in the tonsils, and, wrapping the drapery of his couch about him, he Ides down to pleasant dreams. Meantime, under the turbid waves of the mighty river a strange scene is be ing enacted. An immense catfish is out for a stroll on the watery boulevard. He moves gently along. His tail vibrates to and fro. His fins make gentle ripples in the deep. Suddenly he stops and backs water. There are traces of inde cision on his expressive countenance. Right before him is a curved something which may or may or may not be good to eat. Curiosity gets the better of him. He draws near. He touches it with his nose. It smells good. He tastes it. It tastes good. He gulphs it down, feels the cruel barb, and away he goes. There is a wild scramble on the wharf. Overboard goes Sambo thus rudely awakened from his slumber. He is a fine swimmer, as nearly all the negroes are, and soon reaches the wharf again. He hauls in his line, and grins raptur ously as he sees the huge fish. A half an hour in the sun dries his clothes, and home he goes with two days' rations dangling by his side. Interviewing an Editor. How docs an editor like to have an article commence? Commonly in this way: "Havingafew moments to spare, I have dashed oil these few lines in the hope that whit I have ground out may interest your readers. I have not said on this subject all I could or all I can; but if it should prove interesting, as I hope it -will, I trust I shall be able to say more on this and other topics," etc., etc. The longer you can keep on this strain the more will the editor be delighted with your article. In what style docs he like to have it written. He likes to have it written in a very fine, obscure, hand, with lots of inter lineations and letters sprawled across each other, and, if possible on both sides; of the paper; and then you should call for a proof of your article, and when you get' it conclude to strike out every third sentence and put another in it place, and when you get a "revise" yo I might rewrite the entire article ovei no'liin. This will make the entire orhc! hnppy and cheerful. Like is but a drop in the bucket, and everybody it anxioui to buck it. PAY AS YOU GO. Good Advice to Men Women, but Espe. eialljr Valuable to Housewives. From the Philadelphia Record. One of the most serious and insidious obstacles in the way of thrift, of ease of mind, and of true household comfort, is the "running account." Doubtless the credit system originated in a benevolent intention to do good, and, in its wider application, it is uecessaiy to carry on the great commercial, social and finan cial undertakings of the world, but it is a great enemy to home economy. It is the foundation for debt and all the dis tressing formula for indebtedness, duns, notes of hand, liens, mortgages, and a thousand and one of the miseries and incumbrances known to legal phraseol ogy and practice which are the bane of life. Jack Falstaff, who got all the good out of the credit system there was in it, declared: "If I had a thousand sons the first human principle I would teach them should be to forswear their pota tions and addict themselves to sack." But Jack was the prince of scapegraces and only remembered one-half of the mcum et tuum division of property. His debts never bothered him except he had difficulty in making them. If the writer had a thousand sons and daughters the first human principle taught them would be never to establish a running account. No one can live within his or her income who spends money in advance of earning it. Persons who live in this way, in fact, never have any income; they have an outgo that eats up income before it gets inside the door. The "running account," however, is more dangerous for the housewife, be cause she is not usually either the wage earner or the paymaster in the house hold. She gets what she wants on credit, because there is no particular trouble in getting it and without the ap preciation of the trouble cf paying for it which grows out of the necessity of scraping the dollars together in what ever way the husband comes by his money, whether it be in swinging a blacksmith's hammer, in throwing a weaver's shuttle, in measuring tape and molasses or in guiding the handles of his plow. She does the multifarious and never-ending work of her house hold, keeps the table well-spread, the house tidy, the beds aired, and the bread well" baked and nutritious, and it is not at all to be wondered at that she thinks this enough. The mistake is in the beginning, in having things that are not paid for. The housekeeper who spends only what money she has to spend, is not only re lieved of the worry of debt for what worries the husband will worry the good wife but she is made a conscious power in the pay and provender depart ment of her establishment. Instead of being a drag upon her husband's ener gies, she is made to understand for her self the limitations of the fund which she draws upon, and how much may be paid out and how much laid up for emergencies. Young couples who start out by run ning in debt, should remember that they cannot, in the long run, get an inch the start of the world in that way. They can only live up to their earnings after all is said and done. By running an account with the butcher, the baker and candlestick-maker, they give these several dealers an opportunity to charge them high prices for their purchases. The storekeeper who sells his wares on credit is always obliged to make good the accounts of his bad customers by taking larger profits from those who get credit and pay. Beside, it is a rule, which acute business men thoroughly understand, that money is worth and will usually fetch some rate of interest or an equivalent sum being frequently turned over. It is not fair to suppose that the shopkeeper looks to his credit customer to make good the deficit in his bank account brought about by the sys tem of "running accounts?" On the contraiy, the buyer who buys for cash can choose where she will buy, which is a great advantage, and she can buy for lower prices. The cash price is always the lowest and the cash customer is al ways the preferred customer. It too often happens that no check is kept upon the running account. t?et 1 1 i ri a: lav is always a day of surprise for the debtor, and big store bills are a per petual source of broils and discomfort. People who pay "some other day" nine times out of ten carry the improvidence of their getting into an improvidence of use. 1 nose wno are accustomed to get without care use without stint. There is no rule in the world for large affairs or small ones like the rule of Pay as you go." It is the foundation not only of good finance, but of good temper and of good fortune as well. And especially the housewife who is wise enough to give the matter a little serious thought and determination enough to stand by her convictions will need no monitor to warn her of the folly and dangnr of "running accounts." A Marriage Mart. A remarkable custom exists among the Roumanians living in the westerly Car pathians. Every year, at the Feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul, a market is held on the crest of the Gaina, from 5,000 to 0,000 feet above the level of the sea, and here all the marriageable girls of the entire district assemble with their parents in order to be viewed and claimed. Mothers, nunts, grandmothers, and various female friends contribute to the dowry, and this completed it is car ried to the market on the Gaina in neatly made trunks, decorated with flowers, and carried by the families best horses. Cattle, bees and other household requis ites are also added to the dowry. On the Gaina every family which has a mar riageable daughter occupies a distinct tent, in which the dowry is exhibited, and in which the bride-viewers are ex pected. The bachelors, too, are accom panied by parents or relative?, in whose company they inspect the girls who are eligible. The young men bring the best they possess, and each must particularly come with a girdle of gold or silver. Af ter the brides are chosen the public be trothal takes place, being conducted by a hermit who lives in this lonely spot. The mark of betrothal is not a ring, but a beautifully embroidered handkerchief. The betrothal is in many cases prear ranged, but the ceremony must be gone through all the same. If a girl goes to market knowing beforehand that an adairer will be there to claim her, so much the better for her. Still she must take her dowry and occupy her tent and place herself on view like the rest. What Lead Pencils Arj. There is no lead pencil in existence to-day, and there have been none for more than forty years past. There was a time when a spiracle of lead cut from the bar or sheet sufficed to make marks on white paper or some roughed abrad ing material. The name lead pencil comes from the old notion that the pro ducts of the Cumberland mines in Eng land are lead, in tead of being plumba go or graphite, a carbonate of iron, ca pable of leaving a lead-coloied mark. With the original lead pencil or strip, and with the earlier styles of the "lead pencil" made direct from the Cumber land mines, the wetting of the pencil was a necessary preliminary of writing. But since it has become a manufacture, the lead pencil is adapted by numbers or letters to each particular design. There are all grades of hardness, from the pencil that can bo sharpened down to a needle point to the one which can not make other than broad mark. Be tween these two extremes are a number of gradations which cover all the uses of the lead pencil. These gradations are made by taking the original carbon ate and grinding and mixing it with a fine quality of clay, in different propor tions, according to the quality of the pencil required to be produced. Tho mixture is made thoroughly, and then squeezed through dic to form and size it, after which it is dred and incased in its wooden envelope. ; Last year the expenses of India ex ceeded the revenuoi by $15,000,000, owing mainly to the Vr la Burmah, CHICAGO'S BOMB THROWERS, Twenty Blen Selected by Iot to do tbe Terrible Work William Weber,' a German machinist, who organized several socialistic socie ties in Cleveland and then went to Chicago, is trying to raise money for the defence of Chicago Anarchists. He makes the following statement with re gard to the throwing of the bombs in Haymarket square; "After the trouble at McCormick's works on Monday afternoon, a special meeting of our club was called to take action. Spies, wh is our President, called the meeting to order, and a com mittee, consisting of Parsons and two others, was appointed to draw up a manifesto. This was the one headed 'Revenue Workingmen to Arms.' The advisability of using dynamite if the police interfered with any other meet ings was discussed, and it was decided that twenty bombs should be prepared for the next night, Tuesday. "Volunteers were called for to throw the bombs, but no one wished to speak up, fearing arrest should it become known who had offered to act. It was then suggested that 500 ballots be dis tributed, and that a skull and crossbones be inscribed upon twenty of them. The persons who drew the latter ballots were expected to procure bombs and be on hand. This was done, and the chief, Spies, is the only man who knows who were drawn. I know that the twenty men received their bombs. 'To arms!' was the signal for the throwing tf the bombs. "The meeting was almost through on Tuesday night when the police ordered the Anarchists to disperse, and it is pre sumed that the other nineteen men had started for home, or were injured by the discharge of the police revolvers, which immediately followed the 'throwing of the first bomb. If the police had ap peared an hour sooner there would have been terrible havoc, and mighty few of the blue coats would have escaped. The Anarchists are not subdued yet, and you needn't be surprised if another out break occurs." Baby Tigers. In Forepaugh's menagerie there are six as lithe and brightly marked tigers as anybody ever saw. One morning at daylight, the keepers were surprised by an unusual commotion among the cat animals. The men got out strong ropes lassoes, and nets, believing that some of the more formidable of the wild beasts were out of their dens. They approached the wide stairs with caution and entered the room. The tiger den was the scene of fierce con fusion, and the other animals shared the excitement. The men advanced to the front of the den, and were met with demonstrations of anger. Lying close to the wall in the corner was a huge Bengal tiger, and at her side a pair of beautifully marked cubs, . with eyes closed like a little kitten's. WTith cries of wonder the men gazed at the treas ure which had been born during the night. Still they eould not understand why all the wild beasts seemed so rest less. On!; of the keepers, following the oye of a huge panther, shouted: "Boys, look! One has got out and is on the floor !" One cub had crept through the bars of the cage and tum bled out and wandered around until it had tired out and gone to sleep. When one of the men carefully picked it up it uttered a feeble cry. The scene that followed made those men, used to dan ger as they are, white with fear. The tigers bent, the bars of their cages, and the lions roared in unison with the shrieks of the 'other animals. It was a little pandemonium. To attempt to put the cub through the bars into the cage from which it had fallen was certain death to whoever un dertook it, for with their long forearms and their curved claws the tigers would have torn to shreads whatever had been in reach. Finally one of the cooler headed keepers took the little speckled, sightless beast and climbing up the end of the den, opened a small hole left for ventilation and dropped the cause of all the trouble at the feet of its mother. She tenderly placed it beside, her other offsprings, lay down herself, and in two minutes the cunning looking kitten was taking its nourishment and everything soon quieted down. rtiiladelphia Times. Uovr He Won Promotion. A distinguished officer in an Illinois regiment tells this story: "I was the senior captain in our regiment, and was acting us .Major in a certain battle when the brigade was ordered to carry by storm a position in which the rebels were strongly fortified. The regiment went forward, but when it came under fire the centre wavered, while the wings n ade a dash to reach the stone wall in front. The minute when it seemed that the flanking companies would reach the stone wall the centre was well to the rear, and the regiment line was bent like a rainbow. I was in the rear of the centre urging the men to push for ward, when my horse, which was new in the business, took the bit in his teeth and dashed at a gallop ahead of the men and up to the stone wall. I tried to control him anil hold him back, but could not. I was as helpless as a baby, and I was carried far in advance of our own line on to the very bayonets of the rebel line. When the horse reached the wa'l I made the best of an awkward sit uation, raised in my stirrups, waved my sword, and called upon the men to push forward. Believing that I had gone willingly into danger they dashed for ward to my rescue, and. after a furious fight we drove the rebels from their po sition, went over the wall, and were soon in full possession of the ground that we had been directed to occupy. I was credited, of course, with extreme brav ery. There was a great deal of talk about the gallant manner in which I rode up to the very bayonets of the reb els. In the end I was promoted to Col onel at one jump, and ever after that I endeavored to maintain the standard of bravery fixed by that stubborn old horse. I was no more responsible for that daring ride than if I had been carried there by a hurricane. My credita . le part in the performance was in the fact that I was not too badly scared to take advantage of the position in which the horse's stub bornness had placed me. As I could not get back I urged the men to come to me. Boston Traveler. The Red Apple Days of Life. As I gaze across the narrow school room I can locate the scenes of the red apple period of my life. This was the boy's side, that was the girl's side. Hero I sat, there she sat. Then it was that the tremendous revelation came to my awakened soul that across the narrow space of that aisle was the most won derful creation of nature. A creation which dawned upon my startled vision in red calico, curls and a majestic lace collar. A creation worthy of the big gest red apple fortune or superior craft could secure. O how large seemed my ordinary boots, and how short my trousers which enforced economy made me wear until the red tops of my boots came into view below their fringed fron tiers. Patches placed on them with a view more to warmth than ornament were enlarged by heated imaginations to the size of Texas on our early maps. In conspicuous places before the school in recitation, 1 seemed to have more joints than a patent camp stool, and all of them had worn breathing holes in my garments. When attention was called to myself personally, I blushed so that snow would melt on my ears all the rest of the winter. But woman, true to her gentle nature, even iu her undeveloped state, shone down refulgcntly on my boyish admiration, and my handsled was the favorite with her, and my red apple was concealed beneath her desk, and I could discern her red mittens as far as Dr. Peters can sec a new star. Ah! we may ridicule the red apple period, but we never, never feel in after life the pure love which thrills us when we are new Adams and find our brand new Eves in the Eden of youth. Albany Journal. BE HARD YANKS. ON THE flow Uncle Jonathan Peale Received tbe News of Lee's Surrender. Speaking of Mr. Davis's reception in the South, Judge Har is of Virginia tcll a story which shows how enthu siasm may triumph over adverse facts. Old Jonathan Peale lived on his farm, about six miles from Harrisburg, Va., during the war, and rode into town twice a week on his old white horse to hear the news and commeut on it after his fashion, which was abominably through his nose. He was one of those thorough Southerners in whose head there never was room for a doubt. He had such a steadfast confidence that the South would whip the North, and was doing so daily, that nobody ever ven tured to hint the contrary to him. He would stride into the office of the weekly newspaper on his semi-weekly visits, throw himself down in a chair, and in quire : "Well, editor, what's the news?" "Oh, Gen. Lee has had another battle with the enemy," the accommodating editor would reply," and drove them off in confusion." "I knew he would do it. I knew he would scatter 'em," the old man would respond, with much nasal enthusiasm, and trot back home to tell the family how the war was soing. But at length there came a time when such pleasing fictions would no longer do. It came to be the second week of April, 1865 the week of Appomattox. When Uncle Jonathan came in with his usual inquiry, he found quite an earnest group of men in the newspaper office. "The news is very bad, Mr. Peale, very bad," the editor acknowledged, with considerable hesitation, for he couldn't see how he was ever going to get the old man down to the level of facts without something breaking. "What's wrong?" inquired Mr. Peale. "Well," said the editor, desperately, "everything is wrong. Gen. Lee has surrendered." "It's an infernal Ab'llishun lie!" snorted Uncle Jonathan, his nostrils fairly ringing with confidence. "No, Uncle, I'm afraid it's too true. Here we have Gen. Lee's address to his troops, advising them to go home. Jim Dalton got there this morning with his horse and gun. and says our infantry boys will be along about to-morrow." The old man looked piteonsly from one to another, as though beseeching them to contradict the overwhelming tidings. Nobody spoke. Then he took ap Gen. Lee's address and read it care fully through twice. He laid it down with a mighty sigh, and taking up his hat to go, he said : "Well, niebbe Gen'rl Lee knows best. Mebbe it's best to give them another try. It does'nt do for Christians to be hard and unforgiven. But if the darned Yankees don't behave, we'll just have to turn in and wallop 'em again." And so philosophically accepting tho results of the war, Uncle Jonathan trotted off home in infinite content at having participated in Gen. Lee's gener osity. Women Cigar Smoterg. A Cincinnati tobacconist told a report er: "Some of my very best trade comes from women. You would be astonished if I gave you names, but I would ruin my business with them. Do they use the tobacco openly? By no means. They all smoke in secret and their dear hub bies never guess the vile practice of the wives of whom they are so proud. Often several women assemble at one house, shut out the outside world, put on their hubbards and enjoy a regular old fashioned smoke, just like the men at a club-room. Most of the women smoke only cigarettes, but after awhile these are not strong enough, and they must have cigars. One customer in par ticular I have, a wealthy widow, who would be deeply offended did any gen tleman smoke in her presence, and yet I venture to say no boy, man or woman enjoys a good cigar better than she.

A. few days before Easter a gentleman directed by bis bet ter half called upon a well knosva mil liner for his wife s new bonnet "Really," said the milliner, ''it isn't ready yet. We are so crowded with work I don't know what we will do. Can't your wife wait until the rush is overs' "Wait." said the gentleman, "of course she can. She has four or five hats home now." The next morning the store had hardly opened before the same gentleman rushed in. "lor good nesB sake," he exclaimed, "get that hat ready right off. I have been married twenty three years, and I never before knew mv wife had a temper. Whew !" At a drum tap 9,000,000 soldiers could take arms in i.urope. We Appeal to Experience. For a long time we steadily refused to pub lish testimonials, believing that, in the opinion of the public generally, the great majority were manufactured to order by unprincipled parties as a means of disposing of their worth less preparations. That this view of the case is to a certain ex tent true, there can be no doubt. At last, several years ago, we came to the conclusion that every intelligent person can readily discriminate between spurious and bona fide testimonials, and determined to use as advertisements a few of the many hun dreds of unsolicited certificates in our posses sion. In doing this, we published them as nearly as possible in the exact language used by our cor respondents, only changing the phraseology, in some cases, so as to compress them into a smaller space than they would otherwise occupy, but without in the least exaggerating va uooiiujuiB uio meaning 01 ine writers. We are glad to say that our final concluot was a correct one that a letter recommend ing an article having true merit finds favoi with the people. The orierinal of everv tpitiinoTiinl nuliltahnri by us is on file in our office, an inspection of which will prove to the most skeptical that oui assertion made above, that only the facts are given as iney appear Herein, is true. But as it would be very inconvenient, if not impossible, for all of our friends to call on us for that purpose, we invite those who doubt (il there be such), to correspond with any of tho I'tiiiica ui names are sii?ncu to our testi monials, and ask them if we have made any misstatements, so far as their knowledge ex tends, in this article. In other words, if we nave not puDiisned their letters as nearly vcr batim as possible. Very respectfully, E. T. HAZELTIXE. Proprietor Piso's Cure for Consumption and Piso's Remedy for Catarrh.

You may add my testimony as to the meritt of Piso's Cure for Consumption. I took & severe cold last February, which settled on my lungs. They became ulcerated and were so painful that I had no rest for two days and nights. I got a bottle of Piso's Cure for Con sumption, and was relieved by the time I had taken half of It. Since that time I have kept Piso's Cure in the house, and use it as a pre ventive, both for lung troubles and croup, for which I can recommend it as the best medi cine I ever used: and that is saying a great deal, for I have used at least twenty others, besides about as many physicians' prescriptions.
