THE MYSTERIES OF A DxVY.
WTRANGK. CCBIOUS AND STARTLING THINGS OCCURRING ABOUT US. A. Chlcaca Nt Ity-As Large as the Moon A l.ady'a Loner Trip at Sea A Band of Kofcbere-A Werktnaman'e Dianer, Etc. A French vessel arrived at St. Johns, i , from Saint Malo for the purpose f landing Miss Louise Journeaux, who was picked up from an open boat at sea, About 20 miles off the Island of Jersey. Ttie lady, -with a gentleman named frame, went boating on Sundav even ?g April 18, after leaving church. V hale rowh.gr her comnanion lr. nn ear slip, and in attempting to recover it lost the other. Being a good swimmer iusianuy jumped overboard to recov er the oar. The wind meantime was freshening, and there was a strong cur rent setting from the land. The boat fast drifted beytnd his reach, and he was compelled either to swim for the land or sink. Miss Journeaux, alone in the boat, drifted to sea. The boat al most filled with water, and for 40 hours she lived in agony. At length she was rescued by the French vessel, on board of which she was kindly cared for by the Captain and officers. The violent off-shore wind prevented the French man from reaching Jers-ey, and the lady was carried across the Atlantic to New foundland. Fame reached St. Hilaires Harbor safely, but his story was disbe lieved. People from the shore affirmed that they hear cries of murder from sea. Fame was arrested and indicted for hoinocide. His liberation is of course certain, Miss Journeaux having cabled her miraculous escape. The latest novelty in Chicago is the "rainbow party." The young ladies wear little aprons with the bottom left unhemmed. Every young lady has a number, and these numbers are placed in a box The gentlemen buy tickets and draw from the box. After all the young men have found the aprons, or rather their young ladies wearing the proper aprons, the master of ceremonies announces the conditions. The younc men are to hem the aprons, and the one doing the neatest, quickest ana most careful piece of work is to receive a prize. The young ladies supply their escorts with needie and thread, and at the call of time the fun begins with the efforts of the contestants to thread their needles. The prizes are sometimes quite valuable. The aprons are raffled off after the pri.es are awaked, and sometimes fetch big prices. Thk farms of America equal the entire territory of the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Portugal. The corn fields equal the extent of England, Scotland, and Bel gium: while the grain fields generally would overlap Spain. The cotton fields cover an area larger than Holland and twice as large as Eelgium. The rice fields, sugar and tobacco plantations would also form kingdoms of no insig nificant si e, and such is the state of ad vancement reached by American agri culturists that it is estimated that one farmer like Dalrymple, with a field of wneat covering a hundred square miles, can raise as much grain with 4D0 farm servants as 5,000 peasant proprietors in France. At half-past seven o'clock on the evening of May 10th, the sky in and about Havana, Cuba, was illuminated by an aerolite of extraordinary magni tude. It first appeared as a luminous point about fifty degrees above the hori ion. its course being north by west to outh by east. When crossing the i zenith its sizo appeared equal to that of the moon. It left behind it a track of white and blue light, while the nucleus was of a fiery red color. At about 30 degrees above the horizon the meteor burst into small fragments, which took different directions, disappearing into space within two minutes after. A heavy thunder storm then set in, which was of considerable duration. A band of robbers, dressed as- Ital ians, came into tfhe little town of Peto, near Merlda, in Yucatan. A traveliig company were playing in the theatre,' tne best people of the town forming the audience. The robbers surrounded the theatre, a sufficient number of them going in and plundering every one of all the money and valuables on their persons, sometimes with violence. A party went on the stage, ransacked the wardrobe, and finally carried of the handsomest prima donna, Mme. Ruiz, and two good-looking chorus girls. During the tumult a son of Mme. Ruiz was killed, defending his mother, and (3,000 ransom for the ladies had to be paid. A Bordeaux journal describes the dinner usually provided for workmen in that city. A large plate of vegetable soup, costs 2 cents; a large piece of bread, 2 cents; a large plate of red haricot beans, cost 2 cents; half a plate of roast veal (the quantity being ample for an ordinary man', cost 4 cents; a plate of rice, one cent, and half a bottle of via ordinaire, cost 4 cents; so it will be seen a fair dinner was provided, with half a bottle of wine included, for 15 cents. What can be made a successful business in France, where almost every article of diet is taxed, can surely be made to pay here, where food and meat re cheaper. A newspaper in Maine quotes some reports of "deestrick school" commit teemen, which read like those of half a century ago. One such is: "Miss Abrams did not allow the children to make any noise, and made but little herself, moving her pupils around as old Dea Dnnkwater did his oxen by the nap of her finger." Another school "made fair progress, some scholars get ting ahead of their own accord and others being dragged along. Strap oil, properly applied, might have helped the matter' "Birch oil" is the lubri cant which "made things run smooth" at another school. Thirtt-ftve years ago three sisters worked in a cotton factory in Lan cash ire, England. They all married machinists, and one went to Australia, one to New Zealand, and one to Ameri ca. The later was Mrs. William Shear er, whose husband settled in Atlanta. She never heard a word from her New Zealand aister until recently, when a letter informed her that her sister's hus band had made half a million dollars and had died childless, and that hist December the sister had died, leaving $150,000 each to her sisters in Australia and America. Whes Mr. Lincoln, then President elect, passed through Rochester in February, 1861, en rojte to Washing ton, his face was smooth shaven. It is said that on his way from Illinois to Washington a little girl remarked to him, "Mr. Lincoln, your face would not seem so long and you would look better if you wore whiskers." The President laughed, thanked the young miss, and went his way. Thereafter, he let his beard grow. The law recently enacted in Iowa not only requires that every package of but terine or caseine shall bear, in letters an inch and a half long, an c i phalic state ment that it is an imitation ar;icle, but it requires all hotel keepers and restau rant and boarding-house keepers to put a placard on every plate of imitation butter or cheese that is brought on the table, stating that it is not the genuine article. Old Mr. O'Hara, of Reno, knows how sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child. Two months ago his son induced the old man,, who is very infirm, to deed him his property, and then he decamped, leaving his father with only fs. The father is now in the county hospital, and the son is at Butte City comparatively well off. There is a curiosity at the pen at Santa Fe in the shape of a colored man who stands 6 feet 6 inches in height and weighs only 140 pounds. When he walks ; his knees wobble in and out ns if they were jointed stilts. He is tie veritable "daddy longiegs." It is a curious fact that while the names of all onr animals are of Sax n origin, Norman nnmes are given to the flesh they yield. JUSTICE IN TURKEY. A fmi that MinUter Cox in t'eurt. Heard About Taking along our dragoman the other day, I made a call at the Court House in Pera. It is in the centre of the thronging population on the Grand Rue. tv nen 1 entered the court had not con vened, but the Chief Judge, Hilmi Effendi, was upon the bench reading papers. He is a Turk, and had creat judicial and police experience in the in terior before he came here. He is noted for his shrewd know ledge of the kind of characters who come before him a veritable Judge Dowling of the Tombs of twenty years ago. He speaks French, but not English. We passed the time in talking about modes and codes of criminal practice in various countries. We agreed that it was a cruel fate to be imprisoned simply because one hap pened to be an observer of a crime. In fact we agreed that it was one of the ridiculous eccentricities of human order thus to punish the innocent that so ciety might have security. One thing led to another, until our talk took the direction of the whimsies of the elder day of the old Kadis of the Orient, who substituted their own seuse of equity as the rule of right. I related a story of a Hungarian Justice, doubt ess of Oriental origin In the interior of that country a Turkish agent was sent to buy cavalry horses to recruit for the then probable war with Bulgaria and Greece. AVhile there the agent de sired that the proprietor of a village with whom he was contracting should show him a specimen of the Hungarian mode of proceeding. "Wait a few moments," said the pro prietor, who was also a magistrate, "and I will see who is in the. town jail." Calling his constable he was informed by that officer that a goose thief had been apprehended during the night and was in confinement, lie sent lor the criminal." "Are there any witnesses ?" asked the Judge. "Two," was the answer; "the man who owned the goose and a man who saw the theft." After hearing the evidence the Judge, in his fierce and harsh Hungarian (Fin-nish-Tartaric) tongue, called up the cul prit and said: "Vouhave been found guilty, and I fine you ten kreutzers and ten days' imprisonment for stealing the goose." Thereupon he summoned the owner of the bird and said: "I fine you ten kreutzers and ten days' imprisonment for allowing your goose to be stolen!" To the witness he said: "Sirrah! I fine you ten kreutzers aud ten days' imprisonment for not minding your own business I" Ililnia Effendi then remarked that almost as odd a case recently came be fore one of the courts of Stamboul. A creditor came to the Judge to have a note sued. It was for 1,500 piasters, and due three years hence. The Judge ordered the suit, but condemned the creditor to confinement for three years, "For," 'said his Honor, "how do i l Know wnere you win be triree years : hence, so as to pay you over your pias- ters, unless I hold you ?" This was an improvement on the im prisonment of witnesses in criminal cases. Keep Up the Bars. Young girls rarely are conscious of the power they exert over the young men with whom they are brought into con- ! tact. Their standards influence the con duct of vouns: men while they are in their presence, if at no other time. A young lady who will allow loud and boisterous conversation, familiar man ners, inelegant attitudes, careless refer ence to church and church members, takes down the barriers that should be maintained between herself and her gentlemen friends. It may appear that she makes herself more attractive by this freedom, but it is not so. No girl is attractive to a gentleman who docs not maintain a eentle. womanly difjrnitv. and by her attitude prevent a slipping away from the nicest conventionalities of society. In the deeper matters things affecting life in its spiritual and moral side a girl has a greater influence than she dreams. A gentleman, writin&r recently of a collese friend who was of a weak and careless nature, a young man without fixed principles, says: "Then I knocked off drinking and smoking, while he knocked off drink ing. I got one of the girls to stop his smoking, which she did for about three weeks by certain feminine arts of which I am ignorant." And f urther on says : "And as for smoking, he unfortunate ly transferred his allegiance during the winter to another girl, who not only al lowed him to smoke, but didn't mind smoking a cigarette with him herself, when an opportunity presented itself." Not many girls would go to this ex treme, but no girl having a conception of her position as a lady would allow such freedom. A very safe rule governing the rela tions between herself and her gentle men friends for a girl to make is to never permit a word, a subject of con versation, to take place between a gentleman and herself that she would hesitate to have spoken or discussed in the presence of father, mother, or broth er, and this wi'.l be no bar to a pleasant, entertaining, and fun-making inter course, but it will prevent the use of slang, the discussion of silly themes, and the trifling with subjects" that are, and should be, sacred to every young man and woman governed by refined and righteous principles. Christian. Union. What They Do At Xewpo.t. The next day Mr. King made a worse mistake. He remembered that at high noon everybody went down to the first beach, a charming sheltered place at the bottom of the bay, where the rollers tumble in finely from the south, to bathe or see others bathe. The beach used to be lined with carriages at that hour, and the surf, for a quarter of a mile, presented the appearance of a line of picturesquely clad skirmishers going out to battle with the surf. To-day there were not half a doen carriages and omnibuses altogetner, and the bath ers were few nursery maids, fragments of a day excursion, and some of the fair conventionists. Newport was not there. Mr. King had led his party into another social blunder. It has ceased to be fashionable to bathe at Newport. Strangers and servants may do s , but the cottagers have withdrawn their sup port from the ocean. Salt water may be carried to the house and used without loss of caste, but bathing in the surf is vulgar. A gentleman may go down and take a dip alone it had better be at an early hour and tiie ladies of the house may be heard to apologize for his eccen tricity, as if his fondness for the water were abnormal and quite out of experi ence. And the observer is obliged to admit that promiscuous bathing is vul gar, as it is plain enough to be seen when it becomes unfashionable. It is charitable to think also that the cotta gers have made it unfashionable because it is vulgar, and not because it is a cheap and refreshing pleasure accessible to everybody. Nevertheless. Mr. King's ideas of New port were upct. "It's a little oil color to walk much on the cliffs; you lose caste if you bathe in the 6urf. What can you do?" 'V'h," explained Miss Lamont, "you can make calls; goto teas and receptions and dinners; belong to the Casino, but not appear there much ; and you must drive on the Ocean road, and look as English as you can. Didn't you notice that Redfern hr.s an establishment on the avenue? Well, the London girls wear what he tells them to wear much to the improvement of their appearance and so it has become possible for a Nc- Yorker to become pretty En lish without sacrificing her native taste."

STORIES OF THE BAII. la a Locomotive Cab With a Had Engineer - Struggle to the Death. I was in the second yGar of my appren ticeship as a fireman on No. 63 of the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Road, when I got such a set back one night as few firemen ever lived through. The in cident happenend about fifteen years ago, but every feature of it comes to my mind as clear as if the affair occurred last night. My engineer was named L'ob Rip ley. He was a jovial, whole-souled fel low, never going behind a glass of beer, and was known all along the line as a sober and trusty man. Well, all of a sudden, bad luck struck him. He had a little home, which was taken away by a land shark. He left Cincinnati one night for Toledo on his usual run, and returned to find his wife dead. She had the heart trouble, and died without a moment's warning. Within a fortnight his boy baby sickened and died, and that left Bob without home or family. I tell you it made an awful change in him He was off for two or three weeks, and when he came back to the cab I could scarcely recog nize him. He had a wild, queer, look to his eyes', a strange sound to his voice, and he was so sullen and morose that I almost feared to speak to him on mat ters of business. 1 made two or three trips with him, and but for the fear of hurting his feelings I should have made application to be changed. It was the third or fourth trip after he returned to the road when we left Cin cinnati one November night for the north. It was a wild, stormy night, and as we got out into the country I caught Bob smiling and chuckling. The wild ness of the night seemed to strike a re sponsive chord in his soul. Old '03 seemed to be in uncommon spirits, too, for she was sliding right along with a heavy train, and making no fuss over it. I made some remarks about it but Bob made no reply. Indeed, he acted as if he was alone in the cab. I didn't like the situation a bit, for I had a suspicion that he wasn't quite right in his head, and he was also spurting her beyond schedule time We were to pass a side tracked accommodation about thirty miles out of Cincinnati, She ought to be eight minutes ahead of our time, but 03 was overreaching schedule time so fast that I feared a collision. The con ductor had his eyes open, and at a stop about twenty miles out he came forward and cautioned Bob to slow her down. We had overreached five minutes in that short run. Bob answered surly enough, but as we pulled out again he obeyed orders and checked her down to lose the extra minutes gained. We had passed the siding all right when I noticed that his nervousness in creased. He would whistle for crossings where none existed, and he would toot supposititious cattle off the track Once, seeming to ignore my presence alto gether, he opened the furnace door and piled in the fuel, although we were car rying more steam than 1 had ever seen on. At Hamilton I was fully resolved to speak to the conductor if he came for ward and gave me an opportunity, but he did not. It was when I returned to the cab after oiling up that Bob looked up at me with a start, as if surprised to see me, and said: "Jim, I'm thinking of them." "Yes, Bob, but they are better off," I soothingly said. "You must bear up like a man. It's sad enough. God knows, but you must meet it bravely.'' "Did you see ?" "What?" I asked as he suddenly checked himself. He did not answer. He looked at his watch, signalled me to ring the bell, and in a moment more we were off. The night was growing wilder, and we were not ten minutes out of Hamilton when I made up my mind that there was trouble close at hand. Bob turned to look at me now and then in a way to p'ove that he meditated evil, and from the way he kept the whistles going the passengers behind must have supposed the track to be swarming with living obstructions. We were about half way to Dayton and I had iust renlenished. the fire, when Bob suddenly gave her all steam. It seemed to me as if old 63 took a clean jump of ten feet as she felt the extra steam, and I shouted my alarm. The words were hardly uttered before he was upon me. "You've got to die with me?" he screamed as he clutched my arms, and I'm not exaggerating a bit when I tell you his eyes looked like coals of fire. I was by far the stronger man of the two, but in his first rush he dashed me about in a dreadful way, and had almost pulled me to the steps before I called up my muscle. Then I did my best to save him. lie was bound to go off, and I was bound to prevent, and, as we pulled and tugged at each other, the train was running so close to a mile a minute that none of the passengers cared to reduce the fraction. I think our struggle lasted about five minutes. I was gradually drawing him back into the tender, and was wondering how I could secure him, when he suddenly shut his teeth on my right wrist, and bit and tore like a dog. I had to let go my clutch, and as I did so he turned and leaped off, uttering a cry which rang in my ears for weeks after. It was high time the steam was shut off. As I afterward learned, every passenger was hanging on and praying to heaven, for the dullest of them knew that something had happened on the locomotive. I brought her to a stand still as soon as possible, and when the conductor reached the cab we backed up to look for poor Bob's body. We found it about two miles back, and it was a shocking sight. He had struck a stump head first, and head and face were simply a blooiy mass of flesh. I ran the train into Dayton, and we had scarcely come to a standstill before I was seized with a chill, and had to be helped to the hotel. I was just clean broken down under the mental strain, and it was plump six weeks before I crept out of my bed. I was determined never to step foot on an engine, but when health came back I got my nerve again, and the result was that I finished my apprenticeship, and took the other side of the cab. A Horrified Cat. A correspondent writes to 2fature: "Last week, in connection with a study of Carnivora, I obtained a cat from an acquaintance at a distance, snl carefully dissected it in a room above our stable. When I had finished, the cat was, as may be supposed, hardly, to be recca, nized. I cleaned the scalpels, placed them in the case. No sooner had I put them down than I observed our own cat go find sniff all around the case with a peculiar look of intense wonder. I took the instruments away, and thought no more about it; but a short time after I returned to the remains of the dissect ed cat iu order to prepare the skeleton, when I saw our cat standing at a dis tance of about a foot from the dissec tion, and presenting an appearance of most hopeless terror. She was trembling from head to foot, and in such a condi tion of evident horror that my presence had no effect upon her. After some moments she noticed me, and then darted away with a scared look such as 1 have never before seen. She did not return to the house that day a thing quite unusual ; but on the next day she returned and entered the house with a fearful caution, as though realizing the probability that she herself might be come a victim to science, and her whole conduct has changed. This suggests that the country custom of using dead birds, weasels, etc., as a scare to the like is not entirely unreasonable, and it would be interesting to know whether others have noticed similar effects.'- History. The Denver (Col.V Time says: "General Bragg is right. The ten dency so apparent in the House of Rep resentatives of late years to make every item of unusual service by drummer boy, nurse, o'licer or soldier during the civil war the basis of a cash claim against the government ought to be discouraged. It is making history that will react with a vengeance." SrrsACB it n Persian plant. FARM AND GARDEN. A Few Seasonable and Practical Notes About Fruit. Orchard and Fruit Garden. Much may be done in the way of "anticipated pruning," by going anion" newlv plant ed trees and rubbing off all shoots that appear where branches are not wanted. By doing this now, the trouble of saw ing off large branches some years later will be avoided. Grafts that were in serted this spring, and are beginning to grow, should be treated as if they were young trees and brought into propei shape by judicious pruning. If one bud dn a graft takes the lead of all the others, stop it by pinching. In short, treat a graft as if it were a young tree planted in the soil, instead ot bein" planted in another tree. If shoots appear upon grape vines where they are not wanted, remove them. If an old vine has been severely pruned, numerous buds will start upon the old wood. These are generally not wanted and should be broken off as soon as they appear. This will be a lively month with in sects. The curculio attacks the plums soon after the fruit is set. Jarring the trees and catching the fallen insects upon sheets spread upon the ground is the only effective remedy. Plant-lice often appear in great num bers at the ends of the branches of cherry, pear and other fruit trees. If these can be bent down and dipped into strong soap-suds, the insects may be killed. If out of re.ich, syringe them with kerosene emulsion. This is so gen erally useful as an insecticide on plants that we repeat it here: Stir kerosene with half as much milk until no oil is visible; then dilute with twelve times its bulk of water. This will kill almost all insects without injury to the plants. Watch for the currant worm, and as soon as the leaves appear ragged apply white hellebore - a tablespoonful to the pail of water by means of a syringe. Repeat in about a week. Those who would raise fine speci mens of fruit should begin to thin soon after the fruit is set. If strawberries are not already mulch ed, apply straw or other material to keep the fruit from being soiled. Grape vines are grown in so many different ways that only general direc tions can be given. A vine planted last fall or this spring, should bear but a single shoot ; if a year older, two shoots may be borne; upon an old vine each shoot usually bears three clusters. If the stem beyond the last cluster is pinched off at two or three leaves the fruit will be larger and finer and the stem stronger. Kitchen and Market Garden. The main crops should be all sown, and re turns for the table or the market be coming in. Beets, carrots, spinach, lettuce, peas and other early crops, should afford an abundant supply. Do (tot forget in the enjoyment of the first sowings to provide for a succession. Sweet corn, beans, peas, beets and a number of others may be sown to sup ply the table later in the season. Ihis is the great month for weeds. and in destroying them the plants get much needed cultivation. There is often a dry spell in this month. It is well to avoid wateriug as long as possi ble, but when it must be given, apply it copiously. Celery should be planted from the middle of this to the middle of next month. Keep tomatoes tied up to their trellis es, and cut away superfluous shoots. bow cucumbers for pickles in well manured raws thickly enough to secure a final Vtandf a plant to each foot. forward -egg-plants by frequent hoe- ings. - Onions are most liro-table if bunched And sold when half grown or less. Spinach soon now runs to seed in warm weather. Try New Zealand spin ach. Live Stock Notes. On the flush pastures of June the live stock should all be doing well. Work horses need substantial fare, and the less grass the better. Take erne that the cows or sheep do not break through into rank clover, for they will eat enough in an hour sometimes to give them bloat or hoove, a malady often quickly fatal. Keep the pigs in the orchard if possible. They grow well on the clover, pick up the blasted fruit for the grubs it con tains and stir the soil around the trees. Ewes with lambs need regular care, that they are not too much weakened by the flraft upon them, and it is well to in crease their grain as the lambs gain size. Ticks leave the old sheep for the lambs, 10 that it is well to dip the latter this month before the lambs are weaned. Market chickens may be pushed to ad vantage by frequent feeding, besides having a free run, if possible, while they iTe growing and before they are put up to fatten. After ducks have passed the ielicate stage and have their feathers, they maybe given frequent feeds of food to give them rapid growth and size. The earlier they are sold after they be come marketable the greater the profit. American Agriculturist. Airy Berths on a Fnilmaa Car. "Beating one's way on the passenger trains is not an easy thing to do on the Pacific roads," said a traveller trom the West, "but during my last trip I saw a most novel expedient employed by a tramp. Early one morning, when we were pretty well up in the mountains, I got up and dressed and took a chair out on the platform for a breath of fresh air. Presently the train stopped at a water tank and I jumped down to the ground to stretch my legs a moment. As I walked up ahead 1 was surprised to hear a snore. 'Can it be possible,' I thought, 'that there is anybody who can snore loud enough to be heard through the tlouble floor of a sleeping car!' The Bnoring seemed to come from under the coach, and so I resolved on a closer look. Bending down I g!anced under the body of the chair and saw there a scene which struck me as being about the oddest I had ever witnessed. "In a hammock, which he had evi dently stolen from some door-yard in California lay a tramp, sleeping soundly and snoring noisily. The hammock was swung under the chair, close to the floor, and one leg of its occupant huno out and trailed rather close to the ground. In that o.urer bed his tramp ship had been riding all night, without ticket or berth check, and with no fear of being compelled to join in all round for the beneiit of the porter at the end of his journey. "t;e rode some fifty miles further be fore he was discovered and bounced, and tlnn strode off in soarch of food and to wait until night before resuming his journey under another palace car." VhiwQO Herald. Something About Corn. A great many tests, purposely and carefully made, go to show thai the corn crop succeeds better with low planting and level cultivation than by the common practice of plowing the middle and hilling up the rows. This plant is e Iropical one, and requires heat and moisture. It has an enormous root growth, which spreads through the soil near the surface where the warmth can reach it. Thy feeding roots aro broken by the plow and the growth of the plants are checked. This fact has been fully proved by Dr. Sturtevant, the Director of the New York State experiment station, who made the great mistake of advocating what he called root prunin" or cutting the roots by deep plowing in the rows when the cars were beginning to form. The mistake was generously avowed, but the damage done by it is hard to prevent, because error alwavs travels faster than truth. The presciit is, however, a good time to give a cau tion against the deep working of corn after the roots have luade their way into the middle of the rows. "Our rights must not be trampled under foot," shouted a frenzied Social ist "We will flood the country with Socialism, Nihilism, bovcottism, sfrikc ism, and then wh.it will be the result?"

A Washington letter to the Chicago News says : President Buchanan's love story is historic, and reads moro like the con ventional novel of fifty years ago than plain fact. But it happened just as tragedies happen every day that are many times stranger than fiction. When he was a poor young lawyer he became engaged to Miss Coleman, who belonged to one of the richest, staidest and, it may be assumed, narrowest minded and most purblind families in Philadelphia. The Colemans by no means approved of the match, but nevertheless the young couple became engaged. Mr. Buchanan was then prac tising law in a remote part of Pennsyl vania, and in those days of stage coach es and saddle-bags correspondence was liable to interruptions. Miss Coleman's letters became irregular and then stopped altogether. He wrote repeated ly, but got no reply. At last he deter mined to go to Philadelphia, but at Lancaster the stage met with an acci dent and Mr. Buchanan suffered a brok en leg. He wrote again as soon as he was able, but still heard nothing. Laid up in a country tavern, in the midst of a phenomenal snowstorm, for six weeks, embittered him, and he wrote Miss Coleman a letter of fierce reproaches, and then wrote no more. Now for Miss Coleman's part. Her eminently respect able family from the beginning intercep ted all of her letters and all of Mr. Buchanan's. She made all the appeals to him a woman could make, but she never had a line from him after he left Philadelphia, except the last cutting letter and as; unfortunately, it con tained nothing but his renunciation of her, she cou-nf- know nothing of what had preceded It. The eminently re spectable family were satisfied the match was broken off by means that would have landed them all in the pen itentiary in these days. A year or two afterward Mr. Buchanan was in Phila delphia, and at a ball came face to face with Miss Coleman. Neither spoke, and Mr. Buchanan paid marked atten tion to another girl present. That night a young friend who was staving with Miss Coleman said to her, while the two girls were alone in their room : "Did you see Mr. Buchanan's attentions to Miss ? Now they might have been yours had you recognized him." Miss Coleman began to sob violently. She would not be soothed, and her friend, becoming alarmed, called the family. Of what next happened two accounts have been given ; one was that she had taken poison, and her sufferings afterward came from that but those who were near her said that she was simply suffering from uncontrollable mental anguish. Towards morning, when her pulse had got so low that it was scarcely perceptible, and her ner vous excitement had changed into a profound stupor, the doctors were sent for. But she was past help. They never roused her, and she died the next day of what the doctors called nervous ex haustion, but which goes by the name of a broken heart. Then the truth came to Mr. Buchanan's ears, and from that day his bachelorhood was assumed. Washington and Banker Hill. It was on the 15th day of June, 1775 that George Washington was chosen Commander-in-Chief of the American army. The next day he made his an swer to Congress, in which he declared that he accepted the oitfee, but that he would take no pay. He lett Philadel phia on his way to Boston, June 21, es corted by a troop of horsemen, and ac companied by Schuyler and Lee, who had just been made major-generals by Congress. 1 hey had gone about twenty miles when they saw a man on horse back coming rapidly down the road. I was a messenger riding poste-hast to Philadelphia, and carrying to Congress news of the battle of Bunker Hill. Everybody was stirred by the news and wanted to know the particulars. "Why, vre the Provincials com pelled to retreat?" he asked. "It was for want of ammunition," he replied. 'Did they stand the fire of the reg ular troops?" asked Washington anx iously. "That they did, and held their own fire in reserve until the enemy was with in eight rods." "Then the liberties of the country are eafe!" exclaimed Washington. He re membered well the scenes under Brad dock, and he knew what a sight it must have been to those New England far mers when a compact body of uniformed soldiers came marching up from the boats at Charlestown. If they could stand fearlessly, there was stuff in them for soldiers. St. Nicholas for June. Two Blue-Bottle Flies. . A gentleman making a call at the house of a friend, was astonished to find the rooms and passages iu confusion ; and, on inquiring the cause, was an swered: "Oh, we are very much an noyed here ; a rat has come to finish his existence under the floor of our large drawing room. We do not know the exact place, but we cannot endure the stench any longer, so we have removed the furniture, rolled up the carpets and called in the carpenters, who are just beginning to take up the floor." "Now, don't be too hasty," said the visitor; "you need not pull up more than one board. I will show you what I mean presently; and, meanwhile, shut down the drawing-room windows and close the door." He then stepped down into the gar den, walked round to the horse stables, and after a few minutes' absence came back to the drawing-room with both hands tighly clasped. Placing himselj in the centre of the drawing-room, he opened his hands and out flew two large blue- ottle flies, and buzzed around the room for a second or two. But present ly one of them alighted on a certain plank of the floor, and was almost im mediately followed by the other. "Now, then," said the vi.-itor, "take up t at board and I'll engage that the dead rat wiil.be found beneath it." Th? carpenters applied their tools, raised-e board, and atonce found the cuueo cf$V.Cr'4&pieasant smell. The Sanitarian. Q. W. as a Rural Fireman. A Washington letter says that Charles Levi Woodbury says that George Wash ington's last word's were: "Never trust a negro with a gun." That was the air of an adaptation from "Never take a horseshoe from the door," but perhaps it is a correct quotation. When I was down in Alexandria the other day, how ever, I found no one who recognized it, but I heard fome other things about George Washington which were quite as interesting. I learned for the first time that he was a great fireman. lie was one of the founders of the Friendship Fire Company, which still exists, and when he first went to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia he bought a machine for the company for $-100. He used to run to tires with it whenever he happened to be in town, like the public-spirited cit zen that he was. It is remembered that a few months before his death ho was riding through Alexandria, when the fire-bells rang. He rode to the tire and was surprised to find that the machine was poorly manned and very feebly worked, liiditig up to a number of well dressed men standing on the curb stone, he said: "Gentlemen, 1 am suprised to see you standing here; it is your duty to lead" in these matters." With that lie got off his horse and himself mounted the machine. You may be sure it was well worked from that time on.

The Story of George II, Marriage A Woman El u man Wreck. Bntler's Devotion l.n.t to a For a number of years in Washington City, says a local correspondent, there has been a tall, slim, beautiful blonde whom every one called Jo Chesney, and who was to be met at every house where wit and culture were appreci ated. There was a saying among her friends that she simply lodged at home and "took her meals out," because there were so many tables to which she was a welcome guest that the week was not long enough to get around to each in turn. She has lived alone and has al ways calmly followed her own devices in finding her amusements and regulat ing her life, so that Washington has been in a chronic condition of being shocked at hor bland ignoring of all social rules; but, seeing she cared not a fig, society at last grew accustomed to vagaries and, being hers, rather liked them. She received men, as many of them as amused her, dined with them, drove with them, treated them as good and jolly comrades; and not one of all these she chose to call friend would not have fought in a minute any idiot who had dared to say anything disre spectful of handsome, frank, honest Jo Chesney. She had a secret in her life that not even the female newspaper correspond ents could quite unveil. It might be noon or it might be midnight when Jo Chcsney would send to the club for one of her friends, or if he could not be found go alone into the slums or into "the bar-rooms to look for a man who had escaped from the Inebriate asylum. When she found him she carried him back and then let the whole incident drop into silence, and ho one was quite brave enough to insist upon an explana tion. This man, who would be taken home helplessly inebriated to the asy lum from which he had fled, was George II. Butler, one of the most brilliant and talented young men of his generation, who threw away the great career proph esied for him by reason of his fatal passion. He married the actress Rose Eytinge and went as consul to Egypt, but immediately alter their return she secured a divorce from him on the plea of hi3 intemperance. He grew only worse as time went on, and eventually consented to be sent to the asylum as a last hope, but constantly broke away and hid himself in the slums, from which he was patiently rescued by Miss Chesney. She visited him in the asy lum and watched tenderly over him, and if it had been any one but her, society would not have hesitated to say that this was too eccentric to be toler ated, but she was so altogether an unusu al person herself and so many breaches of social usage were to be charged up to her account that one more or less really did not signify. In the Washington papers of the past week appeared the notice of the death of Geo. II. Butler, and immediately be neath it a notice of marriage, which set forth that George Butler had, in the State of Maryland, in the year 1880, been, by the iev. Bryon Sunderland, D. D., married to Josephine Chesney. When Washington read that latter no tice it opened its eyes very wide, drew in its breath and said: "So that was the explanation of it, after all. How strange! ' The woman who had borne and suf fered in secret so long in the vain hope of rescuing the man she loved from his besetting sin was born in Georgia, the daughter of a presbyterian minister. When the civil war began she went to the hospitals, spending those four years in caring for the sick and wounded. Her first appearance in Washington was as the secretary of Senator Patterson, of South Carolina. It was here that she met George Butler, aed as soon as his wife gave him up she secretly married him and undertook the hopeless task of curing him of the disease that had stood in the path of his honor and advance ment. How the struggle of her love and patience, her courage and brave solitary confidence ended those two notices sum up more sadly than pages of eloquence. Cheap Living In Washington. A Washington letter says: I know of a woman in Washington who occupied a small, dark, inside room on the fifth floor of a tolerably fashionable hotel. She, to use a theatrical expiession,faked out her meals that is, she arose at 10 or 12, bought a second-hand newspaper for a cent and wended her way to a small saloon on Pennsylvania avenue whose proprietor has grown rich by making a specialty af delicious colTee and Vienna roils and fine butter. He charges 10 cents for this little lunch. This Mme. Itinerant would breakfast on her cup of co'Tee and roll. Then she went up to Congress, invariably riding in the three cent car. There is a bobtail car running up to the Capital, the fare in which is only three cents, and some folks are so aristocratic they are ashamed to be caught riding in it. Mme. would visit a few of the mem bers, loll for a while in the gallery of the House and sit just long enough in the Senate gallery to secure recognition by a smile or a bow, from such of her Senatorial friends as happened to be on the floor, and after picking up a few choice items of gossippy news, the con versational coin with which she paves and pays her social way, my Mme. Itin erant gets back by two o'clock to her dintry inside room. At 3 she comes out resplendent in a nonpareil velvet dress and, card-case in hand, starts on the round of calls. She goes from house to house and dainitly and deliberately eats her lunch at each place. In the course of ten visits madame has more than sat isfied the cravings of her stomach and has dined and supped for the day. Do you wonder that I call this "faking out one's meals J" Destruction of the Hemlock. The Middlctown N. Y. Press says: The last merchantable tree in the vast hemlock forests that have supplied the mills'on the Dyberry Creek, one of the tributaries of the I.ackawaxen Kivcr, for more than a quarter of a century was cut last week by "bill" Kimble, who drove ;e first log down the stream that was cut in that great forest in It GO. This tract of hemlock was nearly the last of any extent in Wayne County whose for ests 10 years ago were yielding 100,000 000 feet of that lumber a year. Fifteen years ago more leather was tanned in Wayne County than in any other county in the Union. The disappearance of the hemlock has caused all but two or three of the tanneries to be abandoned. All who were engaged in the business made lar:,c fortunes, and nearly all of them are now engaged in me same ousiness in Elk. Forest, Warren, and other west ern counties, where the greatest hem lock forests in the world stilt denseiy cover rue inns, jiieiamnng luuusiry of those counties now supplies almost the entire sole leather product of the world. The cutting away of the hem lock woods in Wayne county has had a disastrous effect on the water courses, many large streams having become almost entirely dry within the past decade. Sent out Cards. An Arizona editor recently sent postal cards to all the prominent citizens of the place requesting them to give an an swer to th:1 question, Why arc you an honest muni Some of the replies which he publishes arc curious. One answers "It must be because of my dern cusscd ness; I ahvay did like to be different from other people." Another says he is honest because he has never held any public ollie. Another indignantly an swers, -'What d'yer take mc fer an angel i" Another sarcastically rental ks, "I suppose you're goin' to start a mu seum and are look in' for freaks. Well, count me out: I'm not one." Another, a professional la! -or agitator, wrote in blood ted ink, on a posial card, "What are e giviu' us?" While the editor of the opposition paper volunteered the answer that he scorned to lav bare the palpitating mainspring of a noble and honest soul at the request of a dishonest reptile and political parasite. OLD-TIME EGYPTIAN JUSTICE. It Seemed to be Terr Bad For tho iunocent l'arlles. In Egypt, long before the Turkish rule in that region, there were struggles between the mamelukes and the Circas sians. A Circassian chief, through the advice of a servant who, though ignor ant, was naturally astute, happened to discover the weak points of the ruling Government in Egypt. Upon these points, as upon the rounds of a ladder, he ascended to the throne. One day the Circassian had promised the servant that if ever he obtained the eminence the servant should receive the appoint ment of Chief Judge. The servant's name was Caracoush, meaning "black bird." So, soon as the chief was en throned he gave Caracoush the promised post. Among the many cases that came before him was the following petition: Being a burglar by profession and compelled by want to rob a house, I select that of a tail or. To enter it I must make my way through the court yard. This is surrounded l.y a high wall. In jumping from this wall I am caught on the spikes the tailor had fixed in the wall to Buspend ropes for the washing. The result is I lose an eye. I now demand that my eye be restored, and that the fellow who drove the spike shall be punished. The Judge reads the petition, and concludes that justice is due the petition er. He summons the tailor, to whom the matter is explained. The tailor argues that the thief has no business to jump into his yard in the night, so that if he has lost an eye it is his own fault. But the Judge says that "the thief is only practising his profession and the law only punishes robbers. "If," he says to the tailor, "you had not driven the spikes in the walls, the thief would not have lost his eye ; there fore your eye must pay the forfeit." The poor tailor begs and cries in vain. The verdict is pronounced. It must be executed. After a long struggle the tailor seizes the knees of the Judge kiss es them vigorously, and with tears in his eyes exclaims; "Oh! mighty Judge. Your decision is sound, but consider. Am I not supporting a large family my old mother, my wife, and my seven young children? They all depend on me, and I myself depend on my two eyes. Am I not a tailor? Do I not need my two eyes? If I lose one, how can I pass the thread into the needle's eye? How can I do my fine sewing? My reputation will suffer, and all of us starve. Now," he resumed, brightening, "I have a neigh bor who is a sportsman. When he aims at tho game he shuts one eye. Why, great Judge, his two eyes are an em barrassment for him. Had he but one, it would save him the trouble of shut ting the other? Moreover, what dif ference does it make to this robber? All he wants is an eye pulled out. Whether it be mine or that of the sportsman's, what matter? It is all one to him." The argument sounds plausible. The Judge considers a moment, and then sends for the sportsman. In spite of protests he decrees the loss of the sports man's superfluous eye. The verdict is carried into execution and judicial logic is vindicated! The Dumfeeder. The dumfeeder is an institution in New York city, ne is a respectable in nocent, who lets himself out to accom pany ladies to respectable public res taurants in the evening. He charges $5 to $10, according to the size of the woman party. He is scrupulously clean, unexceptionally middle-aged, genteelly dressed, and preposterously reticent. When a bevy of girls want to have a modest toot at Delmonico's, and do not want to be under obligations to an es cort or be forced into genteel monosylla bles by the presence of a man, they send for the dumbfteder. He puts on his dress coat and accompanies them, looking not unlike a Baptist uncle of theirs from the country. If he is well up in his business he marches into the restaurant ahead of his charges with his spring coat on his arm, wearing the air of a capitalist. He ortlers the wait ers about, says damn sotto voce, and then asks pardon, and is generally bumptious, but never pays the slightest attention to what the ladies are sa3'ing. They disregard him utterly. lie is, of course, the dummy, but he gets his share of the meal. The first dumfeeder was a slightly de cayed widower wdto had failed. He was recommended by the ladies of one of the art associations, and his business grew so that he died of over eating sometime a year or two ago. Deaf men are pre ferred, and later several middle-aged men went into the business whose hear ing was defective. In fact, the occu pation has during the past winter grown into something like a system, and one or two of the small restaurants, I under stand, keep professional dumfeeders on hand for whom, any party of ladies can make application by card ia ad vance. Of course, now that the thing is pret ty well known among the men, there is a good deal of pique and curiosity. Nothing can be more aggravating than to see a jolly lot of girls having a good time at Delmonico's at night, utterly independent of every masculine consid eration, and defying all the proper es corts with their paid dumfeeder, who quietly puts his spring overcoat on when they get through, takes his pay, and leaves them respectfully on the side walk. The bevy will look round tri umphant at the lonesome young men who saunter in, and every bright eye will flash with the assurance that at last women can have their own toot, and no thanks to the providers. To the honor of the dumfeeder, so far, it must be said that he has not re vealed anything. He is as silent as the tomb, and all the girl secrets that drop into that grave are supposed to perish there. He lives an enviable, luxurious life; sleeps all day and eats all night. All that is required of him is to keep his mouth shut when he is not feeding and to carry a gold-headed cane. Pitts burg Dispatch.
