his information came to him on unim

hunt in one of the llujpoot states an ex

His captors then proceeded to noose hie
feet and draw them through holes bored
in the floor of the cage, and a black
smith was directed to draw his claws.

ropes, the royal sportsmen had a sliding
door in the cage opened, and when the
captive put his head out they shut the
door down on his neck while the black
smith, with mallet and chisel, broke off
his teeth. Preparations wero concluded
by muzzling the poor brute with strong
wire in somo iuhunrau fashion. Tho
tiger was then released, to be baited by

The Long Journey.
In a certain township not many miles
from Cleveland the good man of a local
household was laid away in the little
churchyard on the hill. After the fu
neral the relatives, both near and dis

tho officiating pastor came with them.
There thi y enjoyed a good dinner and

Naturally their talk turned upon tho
serious event of the day, and presently
the good pastor, drawing a deep sigh,
"Well, our departed brother has gone
a loug journey. "
There was a brief silence, and then a
cousin cf the deceased, a fussy little wo
man with an intense desire to bear a
sharo in the conversation, suddenly re
marked in a tone of profound wisdom:
"Well, you know, brother, thct they
all say thet travel is such an eddicator!"

Romance of a Diamond,
At the beginning of the eighteenth,
century n soldier belonging to ouo of
tho Freuob garrisons iu India became
enamored of tho eyes of Erahma in the
temple of Scrringham. These eyes wero
diamonds, more brilliant than ever
shone under tho eyebrows of Crapaud's
European divinities. Thoir luster cap
tivated his soul. He haunted the torn
filo and, yielding to tho might of the
god, became a convert to his worship,
At least sp ho persuaded the priests,
who went so far as to admit him to
lomo care of (he temple, doubtless
trusting Bra lima to protect his own.
But on a stormy night the convert dis
appeared, and with him one of tho
idol's eyes, the other having resisted
all his efforts to dislodguit. So Brahma
was left squinting, and tho perfidious
Frenchman sold his prize to a captain
iu tuo English navy for about $10,000.
Later it was bought by the Armenian
merchant Schaffras for cioro than five
times this 6uni and shown by him to
Catboriuo of Russia, who offered for it
about $400, COO, a lifo pension of $18,
000 and a patent of nobility. Schaffras
refused this offer and subsequently sold
the diamond to Gregory Orloff for the
same sum without tho patent of uobili
ty. Orloff, part author of Catherine's
greatness and raised by her to the steps
of the throne, for whom sho struck
medals, raised triumphal arches und
dedicated palaces "par l'amitio recon
naissanto, " to whom sho offered secret
marriage and whom iu another caprice
she banished Count Gregory, being .re
instated in favor, offered his imperial
mistress two tokens of reconciliation,
tho St. Petersburg arsenal and tho Or
loff diamond. Neith Doyco iu Lippiu

If we do not soon see salmpn at Lon
don bridgo, there is a fair prospect of
our catching sea trout there before long.
Tho main cause is tho gradual cleans
ing of the Thames water, largely
through the action of the county council
iu securing better treatment of tho Lou
don sewage; whiloamiuor contribution
is made by the efforts of the Thames
conservancy to make the Thames not
only a navigable waterway, but a clean
one. The sure and ccrtaiu indexes of
this improvement have been the succes
sive reappearances of certain kinds of
fish, creeping up annually higher and
higher from tho sea.
The writer has noted this process for
soico 11 years, with increasing satisfac
tion. The first indication emveyed to
his mind that Ecn.e change vas taking
place was the appearance of a couple of
porpoises at Hammersmith bridge early
on tho morning of tho fateful day when
Mr. Gladstone's home rule bill was re
jected. Walking back toChiswick, after
witnessing the memorable scene in tho
lobby of tho houso of commons at 2 :30
that morning, he saw tho porpoises, and
though Reman annalists would have en
tered this as an incident full t.f political
omen moustra maritima in TiLerivisa
ho guessed that they bad cc n:e up in
pursuit of fish. So they had, for shortly
after it was announced that the tubes of
ccrtaiu torpedo boats had Leiu choked
with whitebait on their way down to
run the mile at Lower Hope. A few
years later tho whitebait and Furimps
were swarming at Gravescud. Cornhill
"Dressed Dp to the Nines."
I beg to offer a pure guess as to this
expression. Perhaps others will guess
something better. I think that it is
merely a variety of the braso "dressed
up to the eyes." This is a well Known
expression. The "II. E. D. "gives an
example of "mortgaged up to tho eyes."
We frequently find tho plural cyno. In
fact, it occurs in Shakespeare and Spen
ser. Wo also find neve for eye. I give a
quotatien for neyes (i. e., eyes) in "A
Student's Pastime," page 21. Tho "II.
E. D. " gives tho plural nyen (i.e.,
neyne), but without a reference. Halli
well gives a still more extraordinary
plural form viz, nynou, with a refer
ence to the "Chronicou Vilodunenso. "
The form neyne arose from the use of
my neyno or thy neyne instead of myn
eyue or thyn eyne. Lut it could also be
used with tho dative of the article, cf
which the Mid. Eng. form was then.
This occurs in such phrases as at then
ale (also atteu ale, iitto uule), at then
ende (also at the neiule), for then ones
(also for the nones), Mod. E. for tho
nonce). Hence to then eyue is a pi rfect
ly correct phrase, and to thu neyne is a
perfectly admissible variant of it. If
this be spelled to tho nine, thu sense is
lost, and the addition of "s" becomes
neoes; ary for suggesting the plural of the
numeral nine, for tho populace always
insists on an etymology and prefers an
obvious one, even if it gives no sense.
Walter W. Skeat iu Notes and Queries.
United States Mall I'roteetors.
The United States government is
sometimes served for years by valuable
servants who ure not even boarded at
tho expense of the government. These
servants are eats. Rats are one of the
persistent dangers that threaten the
Uuitul Slates mail. The y destroy the
bags and the mail mattt r. The postoflice
building in New York city is a largo
building and now many years old. It is
said that there are 00 cats iu tho build

cats have never lived uuywhero else ;
others have conio in from the neighbor
hood. Tho eats who have known only
this homo are very shy cf strangers t;L(l
will come only to the clerks in tbo
building. So you see that the govern

faithful servants who prevent tho de

A Duel In (he Dark.
Perhaps tho most laughablo French
duel ever fought took place on Nov. 21,
1878, at Plessis-I'iquet and was
"fought" between two no less person
ages than (Jambctta, who was then
practically tho dictator of Frunca, and
M. do Fourtou.
Some heated words had passed be
tween the two in tho chamber of depu
ties, for which, according to tho Freuch
idea of bonoi1, nothing could atone ex
cept a duel. The two men met, there
fore, on the field, attended by their sec
onds and tho surgeons.
A look over tho Held was enough to
convince any one prcsout that tbero
would bo no occasion for tho doctors'
services. A thick November fog over
hung tho scene sc thick that ono could
hardly see his hand beforo his face. Tho
arrangements for the duel required that
it should bo fought at 85 paces.
Nor was the fog the only thing which
tended to put tho combatants out of
sight of each other. On tho way to the
field M. do Fourtou said :
"M. Gambetta has but ono eye, and I
am shortsighted, so the game will be
about even." '
It was rendered still more "even" by
the fog. Neither man could seo tho oth
er, and tho solo danger wus to tho sec
onds and tho doctors.
Almost miraculously tho two bullets
which wero exchanged missed tho per
sons iu attendance. Everybody's honor
was satistied, und the wholo party went
"That," said I.I. Gambetta on the
way, "was as near to being a eikirmish
in the daik eh anything I ever saw."
A Bowery Iioy In rhllaIelrliia.
One of tho guests cf the Hotel Lafa
yette, a young man who was evidently
very much bored by something cr other,
sauntered up to the clerk's desk last
evening and asked, " What time is tho
first train in tho morning?"
"The first train?" repeated the nffa
blo clerk, somewhat staggered at the
broadness cf the inquiry. "In which di
rection?" "Tho first train out," replied the
young man impatiently.
"But to what point do you wish to
go? They run in all directions, you
know," suggested tho hotel man.
"To Now York, of course," said tho
other, and upon receiving the desired
information he left orders to Le called

for a pitcher of ice water. "He thinks

An English IJoy's Reading.
When you have to play football and
go in for houso runs anil do prep., to
say nothing of spending some hours u
day in form, you don't get very much
time for reading. Besides, it's rather
sniugpish to read much out of school.
Tho thing to do is to read in form,,
which is quite easy when your form
master is shortsighted. Just stick your
book in tho lid of your desk, under
your construe, and you can read away
ns much as you like. Only it has to bo
a thin book. Tho best for this purposo
is tho "Red Rovers of Mexico," becauso
it is printed on very thin paper and bas
a paper cover. Besides, it only costs a
penny, and even this cxpeuso may be
diminished by tearing out tho pages and
passing them round as you read them.
Every chap iu the upper fourth lias read

Fishes Iu Uuc.
It is not unusual ut tho aquarium to
seo in a tank the fishes all together side
by sido and heads in a line, liko a pla
toon or section of men. They remain
thus for a considerable time. Most fishes
are gregarious, they keep together iu
schools iu tho water, and hero they
seem to keep togethir f r company's
sake. Sometimes all thu lights in a, tank
but ouo will bo lined up in this way
sido by sido and headed in one direction,
while the single lish will bo back of
tho others anil headed tho other way.
Then the suggestion of soldiers conveyed
to tho mind by tho fishes in lino is
strengthened. For the single fish seems
to be a rear guard, looking out for tho
enemy in that dirtctiou. New York

The lata Montagu Williams, In hia
"Leaves of a Life," relates how ho was
engaged with Sir Ilardiuge Gill'ard
now Lord Halsbury iu an important
election petition at Shrewsbury, At
their lodgings Mr. Williams began to
feinoko. Sir Ilardiuge protested, lie Eaid
ho "never smoked," and eventually his
eminent junior had to put ou a mackin
tosh and smoke his cigar in a snow

I'ave to wait long for an opportunity to

of punctuality to a height that was only
equaled by his politeness. 11a would
have breakfast ready to a moment,
but would never commence without his
junior. That morning Mr. Montagu
Williams tarried so long over his toilet
that he did not enter the breakfast room
until three minutes beforo tho hour at
which tho court sat. Ho writes :
"I found Giffurd seated in an arm
chair before ail enormous fire. Tho
breakfast grilled fish and other delica
cies was placed on tho fender. Tho tea
had not yet been brewed. My leader
looked in a rage. Ho must only have
been acting, however, for in all my lifo

that ho had been waiting breakfast for

and make tho tea, and in tonsequenco
of my laziness ho would havo to go to
