"Speaking about balky horses mid the best way to cure them," said Gcorgn Sperry, "I can tell you of a trick that Stephen Lelaud played ono time and it worked like a charm you fellers all know Steve, course you do ne lives down to Bar Harbor. Well lot's seo it was 12 years ago on tho 20th day of January. You remember tho heavy sleet storm same night Liuniko was married when all the troes looked so pretty after the storm. You romein ber Stephen ho had a wood lot out near tho foot of Green mountain, where he cut his wood winters. That ycur ha had as handsome a pair of bay horses as ever roin drew over. The nigh one was all right in every particular, but tho off ono had spells once in awhile whou she would take matters in her own way and throw up her head. Ywi might put rocks iu her ears, twist her tail, pound, whip, swear aud rave as much as yon liked, but she would never move till she got ready. "Ono day I met Lelaud when he was hauling out tho first load for the day. Ho told me how she worked, and I told him then and there that if it was my horse I'd just onhitch tho nigh one and leave her hitched on to tho load iu tho woods. They went into the Harbor with tho first load all right, but when tbo second load was piled on and under way things were different. At a certain placo iu tho road up goes that horso's head again. It was in just the same place where she balked before. Steve was mad as a hatter. Ho took off his ooat aud hat. Ho swore till tbe trees around hhn trembled. Next he took a sapling birch and whipped and pounded till he was all tired out. Then he sat down aud rested. Then he thought he'd coax the critter, so 'ha got a drink of water from a spring. She drank it. Then ho asked her to go, but not a mus cle would the move. Stephen fussed till he became exhausted. "Then, as ho told me afterward, ho took Sperry's advice ouhitcbed tho nigh one, straddled her back aud made for home, leaving tho ugly, contr'y thing alone in tho woods, hitched to a sled with a cord and a half of groen wood to anchor it. Ho never so much as looked round nor said aye, yes, or no, but made direct for home, putting up his horse and eating his supper. Ho had become so disgusted that he nearly dis missed tho thing from his mind. That night began with a little fine rain. It was liko a cold mist, aud wherever it struck it frozo. Then it snowed aud blowed for awhile, then again it turned to rain the queerest storm ever known on Mount Desert island. There was not a minute tofter 7 o'clock that evening till daylight nest morning but it snow ed or raiud, aud the wind was like a doublo edged razor 'long toward morn ing. Every tree was three times its proper size, aud tho ones left standing looked liko the most beautiful plumes vou ever see in your lifo. Lots of trees were broken to the ground. The telo graph wires wero nearly an inch and a half in diameter, covered with solid ice. Littlo limbs of birch and maple wero liko branches of coral. "In the morning Steve took out the old horse and started back for tho woods. When ho got near the place whore ho left the horso and load, he was aston ished. Tho old nag was there just where sho stood all night. Not tho sign of a track did sho make. Her legs wero the sizoof flour barrels, her body surely threo times its proper sizo. Her eye's and ears wero hidden from view by tho snow that had drifted upon her; tho steam from her nostrils formed icicles that reached the ground. All iu all it was tho tough est sight ho ever witnessed. Mr. Lelaud at first supposed tho animal was dead, but after awhilo ho took an ax and broke tho ice aud lot the poor critter out. Sho was liko a chickeu coming out of an egg. Tho coat camo oil in largo flakes. When ho bitched tho nigh one on, ho only had to speak ouco and ho made lively timo over tho icy road that morning. Ho kept that pair till last year, when they both died. "They never balked again. "J-Lewis-ton Journal. Splendid Crystals In California. Somo timo ago John E. Burton of Lako Geneva, Wis., leased the right to prospect for crystals in the old Green Mountain mine, near Mokelumue hill, iu Calaveras county, Cal. Ho found a number of line snecimens, and ono of fliPin is claimed to be the largest group or mass of crystals ever found. As taken out from the drift where it was uncov ered it was 1 1 feet 7 inches iu circum ference. It was 4 feet 2 inches long, 3 feet 6 inches wide aud 8 foot 2 inches high. It weighed 2,200 pounds. Tho mass included ono largo central crystal aud a surrounding group of maller ones. From tho central ono it was esti mated that a perfect sphero 1 i inches in diameter could be cut, while several others from threo to eight inches in diameter could bo obtained from tho mass. Mr. Burton has found in all about 12 tons of crystals. Engineering and Miuiug JouruaL Sho Didn't Say Nay.

Ho had asked her to bo "his'n, " and she had mado up her mind that she had "worked out" long enough anyway. So sho accepted him. Sho was perfectly satisfied with her placo, but sho wanted to have a house of her own. So they were married. It wasn't long afterward that sho came back to seo her former mistress about something, aud tho latter noticed that she was Wearing mourning. Of course she was sorry fur her and was rather surprised that sho mado no men tion of her bereavement. It is, indeed, a grievous thing when u honeymoon is out short. Finally the former mistress brought up tbe subject herself. "You are in mourning, Maggio, " she suggested. "Yes," replied Maygio complacent ly, and with no show of feeling at all. "I fought it was tho least I could do fer 'im." "It is showing no more than proper respect of course. I am very sorry. It must have been a great shock." "Great suockl" exclaimed Maggie iu surprise Then as Rbo grasped the idea sho went ou, "Oh, ho ain't dead," with the accent on "he." "You havcu't lost your husbaud?" Maggie shook her head, "Then why aro you in such d;ep mourning?" "Just to please tho poor lad," an swered Maggie. "You seo, it's this way, "she went on when sho had de cided to tell tho story. "After we was married he comes to mo an ho says, 'Maggio, ' he says, 'the poor woman Div er had anybody to put on mourniu fer her, an I duuno that she's been treated right,' ho says 1 Who?' says I. 'Mo lirst wife,' says be. 'Sho was all aluue iu the world, exceptin fer mo,' ho says. 'She had no wimmen folks to wear mourniu fer her. ' Aud so I says to him, 'I'll do it fer the poor woman,' I says. An here I am." And tbo best of it is that tho story is absolutely truo. Chicago Post. DREW PAY, BUT DID NO WORK And When Discharged Wantrd a Certifi cate For Ability and Honesty. "Fancy a fellow picking your pocket and asking for a 'character, 1 " s iida businessman tho other day. "That's been my experience. I hired a young man about a mouth ago to solicit orders for mo ou commission, with $20 a week guarantee. As ho turned nothing i after a fortnight I began to suspi et that he was working for auother linn and doing uothiug to earn tho $20, so I told him that if no order materialized by tho end of tho week he must not expect to continuo in my employ. "I made inquiries which convinced me that ho was doing what I suspected, but I got no legal proof that he was tak ing my money on false pretenses. So when tho week was up t was forced to pay him a third $20, making S(J0 iu all, which, I felt sure, ho had done lit: lessor nothing to earu. Before doing so I told him of my suspicious, which was fool ish, as I met only with denials which I couldn't disprove, although in answer to the questions of the cross examina tion 1 put him through he mado state meuts which I knew to bo lies. "Iu spito of my accusations ho seem ed to think that my paying him the final $20 was acknowledgment that I be lieved his denials, and afti r receiving the money ho asked if I would give a certificate as to his ability and honesty in caso he found it necessary to call up on mo for one. I answered that I would ut least sign nothing against him, for after paying him to no purpose movy I could ill afford I didn't want to make an enemy of him, but advised him not to put mo to the lest." New York Sun. GREEN BADGES OF COURAGE Kaslim Worn by Army f.urc: cons and Their History. A great many ptopla do net know why army surgeons wear green sashes. It is not so much an insignia of rank as it is a protection to the wearer. Accord ing to the code of war, surgeons are never shot or taken prisoners. To delib erately shoot a surgeon while by in wearing his sash is considered a viola tion of tho curio, puuisuublo Ly d.'ath. Because of this provision Burgeons of one army never refuse to look after the wounded of the other army if it is possi ble for them to do so During tlie civil war it was often tho caso that after u battle tho field hospitals would contain Almost an equal number of met) dressed in bluo and gray. Tho Federal am y had tho best surgeons and the best stores, aud a wounded Confederate con sidered himself in gnat luck if he was removed to a Federal hospital to bo cared for by Federal surgeons and phy sicians, But in tho heat of battle a green sash is not much protection, aud surgeons were often wounded or killed. But this iid not keep the surgeons nt tho rear nutil tho battle was over. They were often found in tho thick cf tho fray, dressing wounds and sending tho wound ed to the rear. Theirs was a perilous as well as a nohlo duty, and they perform ed it well. Omaha World-Herald. Kebnked.

At the beginning of, tho century sev eral interesting though highly danger ous experiments wero mado by different men, chiefly foreigners, with refereuco to this subject. Tho first man who risked his lifo iu this manner was a Spaniard of Andalu sia, near Martenez, aged 43, who gavo an exhibition of tho most extraordinary feats on July 2(1, 1828, at tho New Ti voli, 1'aris. His performance took placo in tho presence of 200 persons, among whom were many professors, savants and physiologists, specially inviti d Ly the physician Holiertscn, the director of tho establishment.

Many of Byron's most charming and tender verses are written to Lady Caro line Lamb, tho novelist, whose life was sadly interest ing. Sho was marrii d be fore the ago of 20 to tho Hon. William Lamb and was long tbo favorite of fashionable circles for her literary ac complishments, her personal attractive ness and her grace. Upon meeting Lord Byron she became the victim of an un fortunate infatuation for the poet which continued three years and was the causo of much comment. The poet is said to havo trifled with her feelings, and a quarrel took place. For many years Lady Caroline led a lifo of cr mparative seclusion at Brocket Hall. While rid ing one day with Mr. Lanih she met ut the park gates the hearse which was conveying the remains of Lord Byron to Newstead abbey. Sho was taken homo insensible and a long and severe illness followed, during which she had spells of insanity From this time hir man ner and habits changed, and threo years before her death a separation took placo between lu r aud her husband, who, how ever, visited her frequently and cor responded with her.
