Hli First Dear,
jerer ia a hanter'i disease the M of wbiob are pretty well 1 bot they have seldom been more f jr described than by a Mar r citizen, whose first experience J ' shooting is related in The Min 1 ijrnal. J spending a few bonrs tramping the woods, feeling tired, be sat i , m a log to rest. Like most hunt- bad taken bis pipe and tobacco y Filling tbe pipe, be smoked for M withont interrnption, when, Hing to turn bia bead a little to -( Jde, be saw a large book coming Jbt toward him. As lnck would I a It, he bad sat down to smoke near aer trail. The) deer came nearer and nearer, on tl k was nearly opposite the place the banter sat concealed. While lit bnnter was watching tbe approaoh of tie deer he forgot that he bad a gun and that tbe deer was "his meat. " He 1 berito tremble and shake in every i: 11" nr joint and it was diflioult for t $o restrain a yell of fright. . watched and trembled nntil the , tyt passed bis biding place and went , teto tbe thicket beyond. Then, feeling ' for ills pipe, he discovered that It lay on tbe gronud near bis feet. By the time be bad picked it up tbe deer was out of range, and then ho discovered that in fall excitement he bad bitten the month ' piece of bis pipe in two. He Was greatly relieved to see the deer novo on, as it seemed to bim that be Iras the game and the deer was the bnnter. ..' A Real Grievance. The young man who had just come into the business office of tbe newspaper ' bad taken his silk hat off to brush the hair back from his brow. "I am a writer of a distinctly mod em school of fiction, "he said to the Urbane gentleman behind tbe counter. "Our advertising rates are" "I don't iutcnd to buy advertising. I - wish to see an editor. " "Tlint can be arranged, of course." "And a compositor. " .Ycs?" 'V, f And a proofreader." , Vludeedl" . , And a representative of each of the Other deportments.

But I desire to be sure of Coding tbe person who is responsible for an attempt to allude to me as a jflecadeut litterateur." . " Well isn't that what you ore?" "Perhaps. I will not discuss that. '3ut I think that I am entitled to an op y;' xirtunity to remonstrate with the indi Idual who put that 'y' in tbe word Jlecaydentl' " Washington Star. i 4 I ,i. Hla Own Spoon. "I I beard a capital story of Charles Zfathews, writes Mr. Joseph Hatton, flrom an old aotor at tbe Lotus club in Jlew York, He was invited, with his 'vtiauager and two others, to dine with a fitizen who carried on the business of " ftawnbrokiog and though well off kept , $ut one assistant. ' $ Mathews was well known among bis friends and admirers for his remarkable powers of rapid imitation and charac terization, off the stage as well as on, (fbut probably be never gave a mora re markablo illustration of those powers Stban on tuip occasion. The host being called out of the din ing room at tbo back of the shop, Ma thewB altered bis hair, turned up bis collar and put on another man's bat. Then, making a suitable change of countenance, he took a large silver gravy spoon from the table, ran into the street, and, entering one of tbe little boxes which universally shield one customer from another at pawnbrokers' counters, pledged to his unsuspecting host his own piece of plate jjud returned to bis placo at table as the pawnbroker re-entered tbe room. Youth's Companion. The Force of Imagination. "I had read, as illustrations of tbe force of the imagination," said Mr Billtops, "tbe stories about people get ting fresh air by opening a window that really opened into an adjoining room, and about their getting up and break ing a window that they discovered in tbe morning was the window of a book caso and all that sort of thing. I felt a terrible draft the other day in a street car, and glancing over my shoul der I saw that a window at my buck was open. I didn't want to shut it my self. I didn't want to take tbo trouble to ask the conductor to shut it. I just simply shifted over to tbe other side of tbe car, and from there I saw that tbe window that I bad thought was open was in reality closed. But I was not chagrined by the discovery. On tbo con trary, 1 was amused enough over it to smile, and that relieved tha tension and dissipated tbe draft." New York Sun. Origin of a Well Preserved Joke. Nasioa, having called at the house of the poet Eunius, and the muidservant having told him, on bis inquiring at tho door, that Eunius was not at borne, saw that she had said so by her master's or der and that be was really witbiu, and when a few days afterward Eunius call ed at Nasica's house and inquired for bim at the gate Nasica cried out that he was not at home. "What!" says Eu nius. "Do I not know your voice?" "You are an impudent fellow," rejoin ed Nasica. " When I inquired for you, I believed your servant when she told me that yon were not at borne, and will not you believe me when I tell you that I am cot at home?"

The Popular Fox Terrier, All terriers are good. Tbey are at snrewd, game, loyal small chaps as ever stood upon canine feet or gazed at their owner with soulful, loving eyes, and oi them all I prefer the fox terrier, either wire haired or smooth coated. These aristocratic, diminutive gentlemen un questionably are today the most popular dogs in the wide, wide world, and there are many excellent reasons why this should be so. From the palace to tho cottage these dogs have proved their sterling qualities to the satisfaction of all concerned, and they are especially well suited to the conditions which govern in crowded centers. When tbe big St. Bernard, mastiff, Dane or other heavy breed is panting in the contracted back yard, howling on chain, pining for exercise and freedom, tbe terrier is merely having fun, busy ing himself about tbo house, warning off doubtful intruders and generally at tending to everything which appears to require supervision. Clever, alert and stout hearted, he never relaxes his guard, and he fears nothing. His clever ness as a rule is a safeguard against bis making mistakes regarding the desir ability of visiting strangers. He seems instinctively to reoognize persons who are not wanted about the promises, and woe to them if their mission be evil and their desire a stealthy invasion. Ha protests promptly and vigorously, and he will not cease until some one of his household has appeared and taken charge of the matter. Ed W. Sandys in Outing. The Lion of Keos. There are lions and lions, but the lion of Ioul is the lion of Hellas, says Professor J. Irving Manuatt in The At lantic. Tbe lions on guard above the gate of Mycelial may be older, but they have lost their heads and therewith their main majesty, The lion sentinel over Leonidas' grave at Thermopylae disappeared ages ago, though wo still possess the inscription written for it by Sinionides: Of beasts the brnvost I, of mortals ho, Upon this mound of stone now watched by me. The lion of Chaaroneia commemorates a great and definite event, but he has been broken to pieces. Better luck has atteued the lion of Keos. Couched here on his flank in tbo living rock, with re verted head, 28 feet from tip to tail, every feature perfect, full of life and majesty, one can hardly think of him as a mere image made with hands. He looks -rather as if in some prehistoric age the colossus of his kind he might have lain down here olive and turned to stone, possibly after clearing the island of its first occupants, for there is a myth handed down to us by an old writer that Keos was originally inhabit ed by the nymphs until they were scared away by a lion and fled to Karystos, leaving to the "jumping off place" the name of Lion point. At all events tho monument and tbe myth make a perfect fit. Cur lion is the very Least to strike terror into nymphs or any other unwel come ueighbors. Horace Greeley's Eccentric Ideas. Even his ecceutrio ideas were made plausible by bis treatment. I heard him say once that what was then thought to be the Great American desert ought to be planted with Canada thistles so as to give nature some sort of a green start, when other vegetation might be made to follow. But tbe trouble is Canada thistles, like any other thing inspired by "pure cussedness, " will only grov and thrive where they ought not to. Find a place where their presence would do some good, and, as in tbe Humpty Dumpty case, "all the king's horses and all the king's men" could not fasten them there. This perverseness suggests in a certain way the small boys' con ception of good and bad his enchiridion of nature and life. "What's fuu," he said, "is always wicked; what we don't want to do is pious." Mr. Greeley would cut down his alders in tho spring. When I mildly sug gested to him that our agricultural au thorities preferred the autumn for that work, when nature could not so well aid their struggle for existence, ho thought this reason was a mere excuse for not cutting them at all. Joel Ben ton iu Harper's Magazine. Lafayette In Maine. "It was during the administration of Governor Albion K. Parris, " says the Kennebec (Me.) Journal, "tbat General Lafayette made his memorable tour of thu United States and paid his visit to Maine. It was on a Sunday that tho general concluded that visit and pro posed leaving the state from Portland. Governor Parris remonstrated with him for taking his departure on that day and said, 'If you will postpone your trip until Monday, I will myself escort you to tbo state line with all the military honors,' But Lafayette, accustomed to the continental Sabbath, insisted ou not altering his plans and left Maine on Sunday, while the Sabbath honoring governor of a God fearing state atteuded bis church service as was his habit. " He Was Csed to It. A young man, faultlessly dressed and not at all ill looking, took a seat in a Broadway car a few days ago, and, with the air of one well satisfied with himself, spread out a morning newspa per and commenced to read. A woman near him glanced out of tbe wiudow, and iu turning her bead caught sight of bis cheek. Instantly she gave a little scream, went to the other side of tbe car and took hold of a strap. "Did you see the mouse?" whispered her friend, who was also standing. "Did I? Well, it nearly frightened metodoath." And tho young man witb the birth mark on his cheek read calmly on. New York Tribune. Old Itoman Women. Among the Roman women at one period there was a morbid ambition to grow beards, and they used to shave tbeir faces and smear tbem witb un guents to produce these inappropriate appendages. Cicero tells us that at one time to such an extent did the mania for beards grow upon women that it was found desirable to pass a law against the "adornment." Force of Habit. "My friend," pleaded the temperance evangelist, laying his band affectionate ly on his shoulder, "we are laboring in a common cause for our own reforma tion and tbe good of mankind. Will you join us?" "Don't care if I do," replied Mr. Jagway, witb tears of contrition in his eves. Chicago Tribune. New Use For Candles. The subjoct of "candles" ha dis turbed the equanimity of more than one American in Europe. To pay for a whole caudle when only a small por tion of it has been burned is sufficient to rouse the ire of tbe meekest and most enduring. One of our American oonsuJs to Belgium tells an amusing story of a New York man who found a new use for this much discussed artiole. A New Yorker was 6hown to a room in a hotel in Brussels, where he found 20 candles stuck in a chandelier in the center. As it was dork the attendant lighted them all, but tbe guest had been, in European hotels before and made bim put them out immediately. This was of no avoil, however. In his bill next day be found them charged, "20 candles, 10 francs" ($9). He went back to the room and took tbem all ont, wrapped them in a bit of paper and slipped them into bis over coat pocket. Wben ho was about to leave the house, he found tbe servants drawn up in two lines in the hall, in the Euro pean style ten menservants on one side, ten maidservants on tbe other, all siniliu and ready for the expected tip. Then he drew out his package and dis tributed tbe candles, one to each. "Allow me, monsieur, " said he, with a bow; "permit me, madam. They are very superior caudles, I assure you. I paid 10 cents apiece for them," and ho left them all staring at the candles like so many altar boys. History of a Brave Bird. A great many misstatements have been mudo about'OId Abe, tho live eagle of the Eighth Wisconsin regiment. Tbo facts of tbe bird's history have been supplied by Ella E Gibson of Bane, Mass., and ore given here for tho infor mation of readers: The Eighth regiment, Wisconsin in fantry, in all its long marches during the first three years of tho civil war, was accompanied by a live bird, which was carried on a perch by a soldier. The bird was in all tbe battles of the regiment, but always escaped unscathed. Old Abe's history is as follows: He was taken from the nest iu 1801 by an Indian in Chippewa county, Wis., oud was subsequently purchased by a citi zen of Eau Claire, who presented him to Captain Perkins, the first commander of Company C. In 1804 he was brought home by the regiment and presented to Governor Lewis, who transferred him to tho state. He was kept iu tho eapitol grounds at Madison as a valuable relic of tho war until ho died, March 20, 1881, aged 20 years. He was often ex hibited at fairs and was a great attrac tion at tho centennial exposition in Philadelphia iu 1870. Boston Globe. German Military Honor. "An officer who permits himself to be insulted by a civilian without im mediately killing him will bo dis missed." This is one of tbe uuwritton clauses in the code of knor obtaining in the corps of German officers. If tbe iusulter is not satisfactiousfahig (ca pable of giving satisfaction) that is to say, if he belong to the classes who are not wont to fight duels, then the officer must immediately draw his sword and cut him down or kill him on the spot with any other weapon. These laws are nowhere to be found written, yet they are strictly obeyed. At Augsburg an offioer in private clothes recently re ceived a blow ou the face, without hav ing given any cause of offense, from an impudent business clerk. It chanced that the officer had a revolver with bim. He, however, made no use of it, nor did he challenge tho clerk, whom ho regard ed as unworthy of meeting in a duel. Instead of taking either of these steps he had recourse to the courts of justice, with the result that his assailant was sentenced to 12 days' imprisonment, Thereupon the regimental officers' court of honor assembled and compelled tbe officer to baud iu his resignation be cause ho had not adequately upheld the dignity cf an officer's rank. Pall Mall Gazotte. Lived to Flxlit Another Day. "By George, toys, I never was In such a hot place in my lifol Every fel low who put his head up so that tho top showed over tbe stone wall was suro to get a bullet through it. Out of 07 men in our company 25 were plunked right squaro iu tho forehead." Tbo battlo scarred vetcrnn, known to bo such because he acknowledged it himself, was entertaining a crov, d of loafers iu a grocery store. Tbey f tood around and listened with respectful awo to his tales of battles and blood. "What company was it that you be longed to? ' inquired a quiet looking man who sat back in the ( einer. "Company K, Eleventh Pennsylvania reserves," answered the narrator brave ly, "and no other comcaiiy was in as many battles or lost as many men as my oompany. By George, boys, you haven't any idea of tbe fun wo went through!" "Might 1 inquire your name.'1' asked the quiet man again. "My name? Sam Smith, of conrso. Ask any of tho boys about Sam mith of Company K, and they will till ycu tbat be was always ready for a love scrape or a brush with tbe Johnnies. Ah, boys, but I was a reckless fellow in my young days." "Yes, that's a fact," assented tho quiet man. "I happened to be captain of tbat company, and I remember you now as the man who deserted from it on tho way to tho front. You were rock 1,S3 of your honor then, and you're a reck less liar yet. You'd better go homo." The quiet man walked out of tho store, and tho silence was broken only by Sara Smith. ''Well, by gum I" Pittsburg Dis npfcoh. Bis Pointer.

When one of the female candidates was dipped back in the water, the cold made her squirm so that she slipped' from the minister's hands and went down the stream under the ice. Look ing up with perfect calmness at tho throng on the bank, the minister said: " 'Brethren, this. sister hath departed. Hand me down another.'" Brooklyn Citiiieu. Mot Huilt That Way.

Cincinnati Enquirer. How She Answered Him, If the average American tourist oan not speak French, the natives can. Nothing will stop tbem. Calling at the bouse of an acquaintance, I was greeted by tbe concierge, a female janitor, soul less as a corporation, and witb no aspi rations to beauty. Carefully reading from my phrasebook, I said as best I could, "Is Mr. Blank at home?" The woman should have said "No" or "Yes." Instead of tbat she said much more, and I missed tho monosyl lables if she uttered them. When order was restored, I repeated my question. Again she was volumi nous. Then I played for safety, which tbe phrasebook suggests. I said in French : "I do not speak much French. Pleaso speak deliberately in order that I may if possible properly understand you." I did not want to say all this, but I did not know what words to leave out. I let it all go. I think tbe woman did ber level best, but to this day I do not know if she said my man was in or out. I could only make her a pro found bow and say in United States, "Heaven bless you for those words. " It was horse and horse. Then I sent my man a letter asking him to call. He told mo that it was curious that two Americans bad called on him the day before, his concierge telling him ono of them seemed half daft, for although the woman bad told him her master was in and requested his name of him he kept repeating bis question and finally left. Paris Letter in Kansas City Times. Nutriments In Malt Liquors. Wines and malt liquors, while con taining a fur less amount of alcohol than the distilled liquors, do contain a definite amount of nutritive material. Perhaps the best definition of beer as brewed today is that of a fermented saccharine infusion to which has been added a wholesome bitter. It consists of water, alcohol, carbonic and acetic acids and bitter principles from tbe hop. Ac cording to Professor Atwater's investi gations, "nle, beer and wine contain small quantities of nutritive material in addition to their alcohol and other con stituents. That of wine consists mainly of compounds akin to carbohydrates and averages a trifle over 3 per cent of the whole weight. That of ale and beer includes, ou the average, a little over one-half of 1 per cent of protein and other nitrogenous compounds and 6 or 7 per cent of carbohydrates and allied substances. A pint (pound) of ale or beer would contain, roughly speaking, about as much of these nutritive sub stances as 1 1-5 ounces of bread, and a pint of wine about as much as three quarters of an ounce of bread." Out look. Dogs Meet the Train. The oriental express, tbe famous train from Paris to Constantinople, ar rives at the Turkish capital three times a week at a certain hour iu the after noon. When the train comes iu, says an exchange, there are always many dogs ready to receive it. Before the passen gers have had time to get out the dogs jump into tho carriages and search ev erywhere under the seats and in corners for the scraps of luncheon left by the passengers, and when ttiey have found all the pieces they go away. The re markable thing is that they never come at any time except when the oriental express is due; that they never make a mistake iu the day, and always remem ber that between Friday aud Monday there are two days aud not one. Tbey pay no attention to local trains, because little or no food is left iu them owing to tho short rides the passengers take. Exactly this same knowledge of the time table and of thu diflereuce be tween local and long distance trains has been noticed at the station of the Asiatic railways in Scutari, across the Bosporus. A Catcli Question. Of Bishop Short, who held tbo see of St. Asaph, many curious stories ore told. Occasionally he put questions to candidates for ordiuatiou tbat apparent ly bad no connection with tbo discbarge of tbeir parochial duties. They tested, probably, their wit or tact, two neces sary qualifications to public men, but nothing more. One such question pro posed by tbo bishop was the following: "Which has tho greatest number of legs a cat or no cat?" As might be expected this created a titter, but tho bishop would not take a laugh ns the answer and consequently he repeated the question aud desired some one to solve the problem. At last one of the candidates, smiling, said, "I should think, my lord, u cat." "No," retorted the bishop; "there you are wrong, for a cat has four legs and no cut has five." London Tele graph. - Dime Novel Cure. "I had hard work to keep tbat boy of mine from reading cheap novels," said the resolute man, "but I finally suc ceeded." "How? By keeping them out of his way?"
