The Many Friends oi the I.ate General 
W. T. Withers Pay their Last Tribute 
ot Love and Esteem, to the Great 
General. 



SCORE ONE 



The fnnerRl serviced of the late Gen. W. 
T. Withers took place at 2 o'clock yester- 
day afternoon at Fairlawn. The services 
were conducted by Elder Matthews, pas- 
tor of the Main Street Christian Church. 
Mrs. Groom, Mrs. Headley, Mr. Amy 
DeLong and Mr. Rodgers Clay rendered 
the mu3io and the following selections 
were rendered in BOlemn tones; ''Jesus 
Lover of my Soul,” "Safe in the Arms of 
Jesus,” "Asleep in Jesus,” “My Faith 
Looks op to Thee.” All appropriate and 
touching to those who knew the character 
and faith of the departed Christian, citi- 
zen and distinguished soldier. 

Mr. Matthews read appropriate pas- 
sages from tue Scriptures, and 
made a brief address on the 
religions character of General 
Withers, which was followed 
by an impressive prayer by Rev. 
Mr. Shonse, of the Broadway church. At 
the grove the services were closed by a 
song by the choir and prayer by Rev. Mr. 
MoGarvey. We give below the substance 
of Mr. Matthew’s address : 

This was a Christian home in which had 
lain dead for three days a ChnstiaUitnaD, 
the bead of the family, a husband, fslther, 
grandfather and brother. By his llody, 
as it awaited bnrial, had sat his widow and 
children, the fragrance of flowers enauud 
the bier, mingling with the fragrant 
affections and memories of the hear* of 
these qmet watchers. Many friend] in- 



ThP Industrial Vnion Entertainment 
a Nnrce*», 

The entertainment given the boys of 
this oity Monday evening by the ladies of 
the Industrial Union at their rooms was a 
very successful affair, although great dis- 
appointment prevailed at the non-appear- 
ance of Ool. Swope and Mr. George Bain, 
eBoh of whom was expeoted to deliver an 
address bat who through some misunder- 
standing were out of the oity. 

Eleven bright faced boys were enrolled 
Monday night as members of the organi- 
zation, and many more are ooming in. A 
great many ladies and' gentlemen were 
present at the opening evening adding all 
in their power to the general entertain- 
ment. Lemonade and eake were served 
bountifully, and Mrs. Roszelle the newly 
appointed superintendent of the work, 
after a pleasant vigorous little talk fa- 
vored the company with one of her charm- 
ing recitations which was heartily en- 
ohored. 

This work for elevating and improving 
the busy boys of our towu mentally 
morally and physically the little fread 
wiunt-rs who have few hours to devote to 
schord during the day is a noble and com* 
mendable one, which every thinking citi- 
zen will find worthy of encouragement. 
It is an independent, self-sustaining in- 
stitution, which asks no charity yet it is 
earnestly hoped that the interest and co- 
operation of the people will not be with- 
held. Mrs. Roszelle will preside at the 
room every evening. There will be 
bright lights and books and games and a 
general ensemble of attractiveness, and 
tnstrnotion will be imparted in the most 
palatable guise by the energetic aDd 
efficient superintendent who is thoroughly 
constituted to fill the various demands of 
fche position. Reoreation and iu 
struction will go hand in 
hand in the most taotful 
manner and the boys will become inter- 
ested in spite of themselves. Various 
gantJetn*n yrill drop in from time to time 
to lend a hand, ami as often as possible 
minis ter-ijbf the city will make pleasant 
little infernal talks to the boys. It is a 
most admirable scheme beyond n donbt. 
Mrs. MoFarlane. a leading spirit in the 
work, bas already .J50 reserved to be de- 
voted entirely to panics for the amuse- 
ment of the boys. Calisthenics and gym 
nastios will be introduced to soma extent. 
Those sodesirieg may at any time con- 
tribute to the enterprise, wholesome, 
young folk.-’ books and periodicals, old or 
new, games, picture^, or anything cal- 
culated to interest a lot of wide awake 
bright boys, and the superintendent will 
be mnchgrutitied. The rooms will be 
open regularly every night, summer and 
winter, and auv friend is always welcome.

Whst. he was thu¥mnst be left as ajHr 
and soften,ng mimory in the hecrrW' of 
those that knew Jhim best of alrfTThe 
simple lesson of me boor was to motion 
and to emphasize the home life of 4 m de- 
parted in its spiritual aApeots. j The 
life of this publio man, this affec- 
tionate and wise husband and fltber, 
was to be looked at in the li^ht of his 
Christian faith, atW especially bs this 
shone forth in his happy home. One in- 
cident thespeaker would tell, so strikingly 
did it illustrate the religious taste an 
toueof the man. Battling with the fatal 3 
ity of his wound in the midst of suffering 
he hsd ordered frimthe publishers the 
new translation of the Psalms by the 
scholarly De Witt, and has made 
it his daily companion for the last lour 
years. He bad taken great delight' in 
the fresh niceties of this oritioal 
revision, and dwelt on the comforts of 
the old, familiar selections, “Jehovah is 
my shepherd,” and the like. 

He read it often with bis youngest child 
by his side, and fonnd anew how sweet is 
the union of a tree human love and a 
spiritual faith and hope. It was bat one 
simple incident; but from it. so natural 
and healthy, oould be read the heart of 
the man’s whole life. The faot, reveal- 
ing the inner-life of ‘General Withers, 
carried its lesson to the living present, 
and especially sanotified the sorrow 
of the large, stricken family. 
While they sorrowd, they wonld sorrow, as 
the preaoher knew, in the light of the 
Gospel of grace and of immortality. Their 
deep affection for snob a husband, father, 
grandfather, brother, and man of affairs, 
wonld be all the stronger and more sacred, 
for while memory’s ohord wonld thrill 
every day with what he was in hia earthly 
home, the beautiful spirit of hope would 
Bing that he is now “absent from the body, 
and at homo with the Lord” — in lieaveu.

“It may be that after a time I shall get

a contented frame of mind. I don’t like 
the White House as a residenoe. I detest 
the publicity whioh pertains to our home 
life, and I regret that I am obliged to see 
so little of my husband. Is it not absurd 
that my father and the babies should be 
gossiped about all over the country? My

LOVE’S ATTRIBUTES.

Fair, 1 am fair, with cheeks where blushes fly 
For thought of being fair in love's decree, 

And eyes that spa title deeper when they spy 
Their brightest image In another's eye: 

If love be joy, I am too fully blessed; 

If love be pain I am o’er cursed for sins; 

And which It Is 1 know not, for they be 
Bo Inter mingled that, I pray of thee 
Const tell me where joy ends or pain begins! 

Hast thou not followed in a Master's song, 

A passing strain that seemed from heaven to 
float; 

Hast thou not lost and sought It with a strong 
Desire, and found It chained with some low note 
That stole one half Its gladness, and returned 
A half of pain, till each from each had learned 
The beauty and the burden of the song— 

Then in the falling silence, didst thou know 
Which gave thee rapture or which gave thee woe?

At present interest in England is aroused 
by the preponderance of women artists in the 
lists of cuccereful candidates for admission to 
the Royal Academy schools According to 
the offi. ial reports for the first quarter of 
1888, ter of the twelve now probatious were 
women. Thu year, ten out of sixteen was the 
proportion in favor of the gentler sex. At 
the same time, official records show that the 
vast majority of successful female students 
aro utterly swamped before arriving at the 
gold medaJ stage, and that, of those who pass 
successfully through ’the schools, few ever 
ever achieve anything above “damning medi- 
ocrity." What is true in the mother country 
is destined to hold good in the United States. 
Yet the number of women artists here, who 
do attain excellence and recognition of their 
abilities, Is most gratifyingly on the increase. 

Since Rosa Ronheur placed herself in the 
front rank of living painters, the number of 
her sex who have attained fame with the 
brush has grown steadily and surely, until 
no exhibit of canvases in the Old World or 
the New World can be held that does not 
show among the best paintings displayed the 
work of a woman artist. In oil, .in water 
colors, In black ami white, the fair workers 
in the ateliers of America are conquering all 
before them, and not a few have won fame 
and wealto. That the number of these suc- 
cessful ones does not Increase in proportion 
to the growth in the number of art pupils 
passing through the schools of the land is a 
result bused upon natural causes. The male 
artist is such for life. The wornau artist is 
such— in nine cases ont of teu— until she 
marries. Rosa Boubeur was content to wed 
art ouly, but bar example i9 followed by very 
few of her sex. The majority infinitely pre- 
fer to wed a home, to ally themselves to rest, 
to wed a man able to lift tho burden of life’s 
cares from their slender shoulders. Then 
come family cares, and she must bean excep- 
tional woman indeed who does not put aside 
the palette for the cradle and sketch l ox for 
the accessories of the uursery. 

And still, daspito the barriers raised by hor 
own nature, the number of eminent, success- 
ful, even famous, women artists grows stead- 
fastly. The multiplication of art schools for 
woma»; the widened field for women artists 
opened by the makers of Christmas, Now 
Year’s and Easter cards — these and other 
causes are coustantly at work developing 
femlrine talent that, under favorable condi- 
tions in after life, brings its possessor from 
comjjprativa obscurity into the full light of 
pub* , recognition and public patronage. • 
The women students in tho schools of Europe’s 
art cJfters are among the most zealous and 
pumsSuig. Tuey possess none of their male 
Codaj^Keur’s fondness for detrimental

as she gave her horse the spur. The animal 
plunged frantically, but the major held him 
fast. 

“Mount, you fool!” I cried, in my rage and 
excitement. 

With his disengaged hand tho major struck 
me in the mouth. 

As I received the blow I heard the re- 
port of a weapon and I saw the major 
fall; I saw that the bullet had struck -him in 
the forehead; I saw him fall like a stone, 
flinging up his arms as he did so, and I saw 
that he was dead. 

To snatch the revolver from the major’s 
belt, and to mount and follow Rosa’s horse, 
which was still wildly plunging, but edging 
off from the infuriated mob, which hail now 
reached the moss tent, was the work of an 
instant. 

“Keep ca!” I shouted t fruy companion, as 
we got beyond the immediate circle of lights. 
We went straight for the road, aud Rosa ut- 
tered not a sound. There was hope for us 
yet; we might get clear off m the darkness. 
My duty was plain— to save the helpless 
woman at my side. A few yarils brought us 
to the road. On we went at headlong speed, 
but the Mussulman devils had fired the mess 
tent. In an instant the great dry tent was 
one sheet of flame; it lighted up the white 
road,-' on which we were galloping for dear 
life. The sound of musket shots rung out; 
the brutes were evidently potting at us. 
“Stoop!" I cried to my companion, but tco 
late. A dull thud told me she was hit. She 
gave me one look of agony, a look that will 
haunt me to my dying day. 

But we tore on, and a few seconds more 
brought us out of the light of the still blaz- 
ing tent. She had ceased to urge her horse, 
os she had done, with whip and spur. 

"Don’t give in,” I cried; “in a few minutes 
we shall be safe from pursuit.” 

“Leave me, Jack,” she said; “my horse is 
wounded, and so am I." 

As she said the words the poor beast fell 
with a crash — fell to rise no more. I sprang 
to the ground ; desperation lent me strength. 
How I managed it I don’t know ; but I suc- 
ceeded in getting her on to my own fright- 
ened beast. She was apparently fainting; in 
her right hand she still clutched the revol- 
ver. 

“Take it," she said. I thrust it into my 
holster. 

"Don’t let me fall into their hands alive, 
Jack.” She never spoke again. 

When she passod away I cannot tell, but 
she was dead ere I reached Murgliab. I 
handed bar body over to the women. I made 
my report to the officer In command. I told 
how sudden had been the rising, aud bow 
brave Maj. Cross fell pierced by the bullet of 
some skulking mutineer; and then I thought 
of poor dead Rosa, and wondered if she and I 
had been so very much to blame. No, my 
conscience was fairly clear; and it was with 
so no satisfaction that I bucldti my sword 
belt to accompany the party that was t ? 
wreak retribution on the mutineers of the 
— th regiment, who, we heard, had intrenched 
themselves at Kerimabad. As I ru le along 
with the others, thirsting for revenge, I 
thought of poor murdered Rosa aud her 
wrecked young life. I thought of her as an 
angel in heaven looking down on mo, and in 
my heart 1 sworo to give no quarter to the 
ruffians who had caused her death. As I lid 
so 1 mechanically opened my holster, took 
out my revolver and drew back the little 
safety bolt that holds the chamber. 

“Good heavens' what's this?" 

One of the cartridges had been discharged. 
You can fancy my feelings when I discov- 
ered that hors was the hand that fired the 
shot — the shot that had slain bar husband! 

I don’t tell you how we wiped out the ruf- 
fians at Kerimabad. If ever vengeance was 
sudden and sure, that was the day. The bulk 
of them had intrenched themselves, aud were 
slain to a man.

opment so long as the body is undergoing the 
process of %rowth. According to Dress, 
mothers often unwittingly violate this prin- 
ciple in the dressing of their children by com- 
pelling them to wear clothing which they 
have partially outgrown, but which is not 
sufficiently worn to be discarded. Tight 
sleeves, tight bands, tight waists, etc., which 
have become such from the child’s increased 
size, are certainly quite as harmful as those 
purposely so constructed; and added to this 
Is the fact that the bones and muscles of the 
tender little ones are far raoro susceptible to 
the constriction of tight clothing than are 
those of persons of older growth. 

The clothing of children should always be 
so made that it can readily be enlarged to 
accoinmo.latc the growing form, and should 
never fit so snugly as not to allow perfect 
freedom of movement to every organ. What- 
ever garments are worn about the chest and 
waist should always permit of an unre- 
strained, full inspiration, and it would be an 
excellent plan If mothers would frequently 
test the chilli’s breathing capacity by placing 
a tape measure around its waist when in its 
night clothing, and allowing it to take a full 
inspiration, noting the number of inches’ ex- 
pansion, and then adjusting its clothing tc 
correspond with the measure of tho full In- 
spiration. allowing one inch or two for

“Jack," she said, “we must be careful. 
There Is no time to lose. Who can tell 
whether the grooms that follow us may not 
have seen that kiss?” 

She was cool, calculating and reasoned ad- 
mirably. As tor me, the blood rushed through 
my veins like liquid fire, and my heart palpi- 
tated to an abnost painful extent. 

“Jack,” she said, once more, “it i3 for to- 
night. He knows it; he has told me so. We 
must fly together.” 

I am not a coward. To make love to an- 
other man’s wife is one thing, J to rim away 
with her auotber; but to desert one’s colors, 
to desert one’s brother officer, to leave him tc 
certain death in the hour of his need, and at 
the same time to run away with Ills wife, is a 
piece of villainy too monstrous for the mind 
of any man to concieve or execute. 

I explained, I argued, I pleaded for time; I 
swore that I loved her; I told her that by an 
act such as this I should become on outcast. 
All to uo purpose. 

“If you love me, Jack,” she said, “surely 
you would not have me handed over to the 
tender mercies of wretches such as those?” 

And with hor little cutting whip she indi- 
cated the two native grooms. 

Her kiss wns burning on my lips, but I was 
not the man to desert my colors in the hour 
of danger under the excuse of an intrigue. 

I said to her: 

’It’s a bad business, Rosa; it seems to me he 
ought to put you in safety, somehow or an- 
other." 

"Jack,” she said, with a savage determina- 
tion, “I’ll give him a chance. Hecausave 
me to-night, if he will It Is only a four 
hours’ ride, after all. But promise m3 one 
thing. Jack; if he should refuso, you will 
save me You can be back before dawn, to 
be butchered here with him, since you pre- 
fer it.” 

I shook my head. 

“Do you refuse me still?" she cried. “Then, 
by heavens,” she screamed, as she shook her 
little fist at the blue sky, “I’ll go by myself, 
for yo i are both of you cowards, you would 
be paladins I" 

I did not answer hor, but woman like she 
pestered me into making her a promise. I 
agreed that her horse and the colonel’8 should 
be brought round, u3 If for a mooulight 
ride, after dinner. Then, and not till then, 
did her tears, her piteous tears, cease to flow. 

“Forgive me, dear old Jack.” she said; “I 
knew you would save me after all.” 

Ah me! I did save her, but at what a price! 

Dinner was over, and we stood in the com- 
pound outside the mess room, the major, his 
wife and I. Some sort of attempt at floral 
ornament had been made in tho so called gar 
den by a few rows of stramonium plants, 
whose large white flowers, which open ouly 
at night, gave their heavy perfume to the 
tepid air. VTe smoked our “Triohys,” better 
ones than they gave us here (said Fowler, 
with a sigh). Then there was a horrid scone 
between the pair. She implored him on her 
knees, in the dust, as a woman might plead 
with an executioner for her wretched life; 
but she did not move the major 

“My dear,” he said grimly, "you didn’t 
marry me for my good looks; you married 
me, Rosa, for my position. My position, my 
dear, has its duties, aud one of them is to 
take my chance of death in this hole. My 
wife has thrown in her lot with mo. I l.ike 
it that that’s so, Fowler?” said the major, 
turning to me. 

“I could run across with her, if you liked, 
you know, as fur as Murgliab; it’s ouly 
twenty-five miles, and the roads are gbod." 

Now, at Murgliab was a large cantonment 
— English families, ladies mid children; and 
what was more important, an English regi- 
ment and somo guns. 

“Fowler," said the major, "I cau trust 
you, my boy, but I can’t trust her; she'll 
have to stay and take her chance with the 
old man, after all.” 

I saw that there was no use arguing with 
him. There was only one chance — to try an 1 
shame him into it. I left the pair, sh ; plead- 
ing and entreating, but tbu man was not to 
be moved. 

From tho regimental lines came the sounds 
of music and song, but the men were loss

Keep Warm and lie Happy. 

“If you want to be happy keep warm,” says 
Rose Terry Cooke. “Women are oaten up 
with neuralgia, say the doctors. No wonder. 
They sit all the morning by a hot register, 
then tie the five or six inch bonnet over their 
back hair, a bit of lace film over their bangs, 
put on kid boots, with silk or thread stock- 
ings underneath, and dawdle along the pave 
with bitter winds of winter smiting their 
temples, their delicate ears, their throats and 
the bases of what should be their brain. 
Their outward nervesshrink and quiver under 
this barbarous exposure. But no matter; 
their chests are well covered with fur cloaks 
and sacques, but cold feet, the numb ears, 
the reddened temples, the exposed neck, will 
have their own story to toLL Then you won't 
wear flannel next the skin. Why? Because 
your waists will look too large, and it is the 
the style to be as near in shapeliness to that 
delightful and lovely insect, the wasp, as 
humanity can be forced. Do you really like 
to ache and groan and to be laid aside every 
few days with agonizing headaches, or pant- 
ing, laboring hearts? Strange, if truel” 



Ho was a melancholy man. I met him at 
my fogy club. I did not know his uaiue. In 
my own mind 1 looked on him as the man 
who always sat in the same corner, smoking 
Trioliiiiopoli ckeroots. He was very neat as 
to his dress, ami I detected at once that at 
somo time or other he had been in the ser- 
vice. His hair was perfectly white, and the 
man appeared worn out with some secret 
grief, some mysterious trouble. I made Maj. 
Fowler’s acquaintance on one Christmas eve, 
after having dined a little better than usual, 
and I was correspondingly elated, and felt I 
must talk to somebody; so, faut de mieux, I 
talked to him. Generally at the Rice and 
Curry, when a member whom we have not 
been introduced to addresses us, we put on a 
wronged and indignant air— as a rule,, we 
don’t answer ; if wo do wo make the man who 
has thus daringly addressed us understand 
his mistake. It is thus we assert our superi- 
ority. Perhaps this is why we have tho 
reputation of being cliquey. 

Why it was I do not know. There is no 
other word for it— we “chummed," literally 
chummed, at once. We had b ah served in 
the same presidency, we had mot the same 
people, but Maj Fowler was senior to me. 
Ee had been through the mutiny, I had not. 
It was a rather ghastly aff air, and I cannot 
sco why ho should have confided it to me. At 
any rate, this is what lie told me: 



A Urave Woman. 

Rare presence of mind and courage under 
trying circumstanccsare frequently displayed 
by women. An Akron, 0. , correspondent of 
Tho Cincinnati Enquirer relates an incident 
which well Illustrates this. Miss Lucy 
Beighl9, a pretty dressmaker, with her sister 
and Mrs. S. Hard, were returning from a fu- 
neral, riding in a close carriage. The driver 
dismounted, whereupon the horses made a 
dash aud ran away at a furious rate of speed. 
Two men Jumped into a buggy and tried to 
overtake the team as it dashed on through 
the streets. Tho cries of the women In the 
carriage brought out crowds of poople, and 
all expected to see tho ladies dashed to death 
In collisions that appeared to be unavoidable. 
When the horses were in tho maddest of their 
flight Miss Beigble opened the carriage door, 
and, stepping on a splasher over the front 
wheol of the carriage, swung herself onto 
the driver’s seat, where she secured tho lines 
and guided the horses safely along the street 
until they were tired out and overtaken by 
the men in pursuit. 



Handling Fire. 

A governess residing at Lee, England, died 
from burns resulting from an explosion 
caused by blowing down the chimney of an 
oil lamp for the pur| oso of extinguishing the 
light The occurrence is such a common one 
that it would not be worth noticing except 
for tho purpose of impressing upon persons 
who use tho ordinary petroleum lamps the 
extreme dauger of this habit. It Is so quick 
and apparently an easy a way to extinguish 
a light that nine parsons out of ten resort to 
it, although it is fraught with danger. When 
the reservoir is full there Is comparatively lit- 
tle risk of fin explosion; but when the oil is 
nearly exhausted the reservoir becomes filled 
with gas, and as the flame is blown down- 
ward an explosion at once results. The 
carelessness with which petroleum is used 
is absolutely astounding. 

People who would be filled with alarm did 
they know that a canister of gunpowder was 
In the room, will place a petroleum lamp upon 
a table that the slightest touch will overturn, 
or Li u position where it can be upset by 
children, although the consequences of a fall 
are nearly as disastrous as those of the explo- 
sion of gunpowder. Careless housewives will 
even go the length of pouring petroleum upon 
on expiring fire, regardless of the fact that 
that they are endangering their own lives 
and risking the confl agratio n of the |iouse. 
It w amimi in vo nm now sucll feckless COtlCmct 
as thi cau ba made ponal; bat something 
might be duns at laast ware the teachers in 
board schools to instruct children as to the 
dangerous properties of petroleum and the 
risks incurred by the reckless handling of it, 
or by the habit of extinguishing the light by 
blowing down tho chimney of a lamp.— Lon- 
don Standard. 

Color iu Furnishing;. 

Iu furnishing, the matter of coloring is a 
point that should bo carefully studied. A 
confusion of colors will spoil any room, and 
this holds good oven to the smallest appoint- 
ment aud decoration. A chair covering or 
even a cushion can prove almost os complete 
a disfigurement os a carpet which does not 
accord with the paper, curtains or wood 
work. 

Colors possess character, and that of tho 
most divers sorts. Some huessuggest warmth 
aud cheer, while others breathe of coolness 
and repose. Blue, gray, drab and fawn are 
the proper colors for sunny chambers, while 
red, pink aud buff belong to north rooms or 
any into which the light comes in a stinted 
way. Even gloomy places can be made 
cheerful by employing right colors, especially 
when there can be added on open fire with a 
bright brass fender. 

There is one rule in furnishing which people 
of moderate means ought always to obey, yot 
they are usually the least inclined to carry it 
into practice. This rule is, not to be ham- 
pered by the fashion of the moment or afraid 
of making one’s rooms look unlike those of 
one’s friends. 

Tho fact that several ladies in one’s narrow 
visiting circle possess a certain style of car- 
pets, chairs, tables, etc., ought to prove a 
good reasou for buying articles entirely differ- 
ent in shape or color. Furniture not so 
pretty is far preferable to having one’s house 
so like that of the right and left band neigh- 
bor that a new acquaintance can scarcely tell 
which of the three domiciles ho has entered.

I was only a lieutenant then— a lieutenant 
in the —lb Bengal native infantry. The 
mutiny hn ! already broken out in our presi- 
dency, but our regiment was supposed to be 
particularly well affected. Kerimabad was 
a wretched place; it was oue of the dullest 
and hottest stations in the presidency. We 
were voi-y hard up for European officers; 
some were on leave — of course, they were 
hurrying back as fast as the P. & 0. boats 
could carry them; 6ome were on detachment 
duty, others away on special employment, 
but the bulk of them were on #the sick list, 
for Kerim;. bad wns an unhealthy holo, al- 
though its strategic importance was too great 
to allow of its being unoccupied, and to our 
regiment bad fallen the duty of occupying 
it. From tho circumstances I have men- 
tioned Maj. Cross, who was in command, 
and myailf were the only two men on the 
effective list. Cross was a martinet ; he had 
risen from the ranks, and was oxtromely re- 
ligious. We naturally saw a great deal of 
efich other. 

Maj. Cross was married, aud his wife was 
the only white woman on the station. Not 
six months before Maj. Cross returned from 
furlough with his bride. Of coure*. we all 
fell in love with her. What she could liave 
.seen in Cross I cannot make out; why she 
married him, heaven knows. Cross, though 
a most des  rving officer, was perhaps hardly 
■what would be called a gentiemau, but bis 
wife was a lady and very lieautiiul. She 
must have been iu her 21st year then. She 
was blonde and [ietite, with dreamy blue 
eyes and masses of curling hair, which gave 
her girlish beauty an air of recklessness, 
which was but an additional charm. Her 
greatest delight was horse exercise. At early 
morning Mrs. Cross was certain to be in the 
saddle; iu the afternoon, as soon as ever the 
sun was low enough, the major’s wife might 
have been seen on her dapple gray Gulf Arab, 
flying across the country, attended by one or 
more of her husband’s subordinates. 

I had been iu love with her trom the first; 
but I am not an excitable man, aud perhaps 
it wasn’t genuine love, after all. I know 
that there was not the faintest shadow of im- 
propriety in the love, if we must call it so, 
that I felt for the major’s wife. True, I was 
her willing slave, her constant cavalier. Per- 
haps I pitied the girl married to a mau twice 
her age, a man with but two ideas in his 
head — drill and discipline. They say that

Women Here and in Europe. 

America is the paradise of women. No- 
where else are they made so much of and so 
deferred to. In Holland, not long ago, was a 
woman, and with her a mule dragging a canal 
boat, on the deck of which stood a man busily 
engaged in holding a chair down and smoking 
a long clay pipe. Would a canal conducted 
on that plan pay in tho United States? Ask 
your mother or your wi. e— and then dodge 
behind tho door. 

The women abroad monopolize lb.’ brawn. 
In Germany and Italy they till the ground. 
In Switzerland they fasten the lake steamers 
to the wharf, aud lug tho baggago cn and off 
the boats. In France they are the shopkeep- 
ers. The men are tho array and play the rola 
of Capt. Jinks. “By jingo” is a masculine 
phrase with a masculine reference. Yonder 
is a good field for the woman suffragists. Ths 
missionary societies ought to send Susan B. 
.Anthony to Europe.— Clergyman in St. Louli

Poultices for the Complexion. 

A young woman of Pittsburg, who has 
enough good looks, if she only lmew it, to 
make her way In the world, has been trying 
ail sorts of queer and quack recipes for beauty. 
Before retiring for the night, mademolseUa 
applied to her lace, nock and hands poultices 
of bread and milk. She slept all night through 
—how she did it I don’t know— with thees 
sloppy embrucements upon her. In the morn- 
ing she arose aud ran to the glass tho first 
thing to see the wonders worked by the poul- 
tloea There were wonders, Indeed! But not 
what she expected. Her skin had shriveled 
up; it looked like a piece of corrugated cam 
vos, or zino roofing painted white. In {act 
sho reminded herself of “She” after the final 
passage through the fountain of fire.— Pitts- 
burg Dispatch. 

Mrs. Ward McAllister was a Miss Gibbons, 
of Madison, N. J., and the Gibbons home- 
stead is now the main building of Drew semi- 
nary. It is a venerabfe mansion, built in co- 
lonial style, with a wide hall tiled with mar* 
hie running through the center. All the doori 
are of solid mahogany, black with age and 
polished os glass.

I thanked Maj. Fowler for his story. I.sup- 
pose it was all true, for I had heard of the 
death of Cross at Kerimabad— I had evey 
seeu his grave; but till now I certainly did 
uot know that it was his wife who had mur- 
dered him.— London World. 



Blind Beggars of Canton. 

There are thousands of blind beggars here 
in Canton, and in going through the city to- 
day I saw at least 300 of all ages and sexes. 
They went in groups of six and eight in sin- 
gle file, and the leader could see just enough 
to get along. The others hold ou to oue an- 
other’s clothes, and all from decrepit old 
women to little blind boys hold out little flat 
round baskets, and turning up their sightless 
eyes, asked for alms iu piteous tonos. Those 
blind beggars come from the blind asylum of 
Canton. They go out daily to beg through 
the city, and they stand in front of the shop 
until its owner pay6 them to go away. They 
barely get more than tho tenth of a cent 
from a single man, aud inasmuch as the asy- 
lum furnishes them but little food, they aro 
pale, thin aud pitifully ragged. The sack- 
cloth in which the beggar of China is usually 
clad Is of the coarsest coffee sacking. He is 
dirty and loathsome to an extreme, and I 
would as soon tliinu of touching a small pox 
patient or a leper us oue of these beggars.—

pity is akin to love — perhaps it is 
not the least idea of running away with Rosa 
Cross, not the remotest; my affection tor her 
was purely platonic— at least it wa3 till the 
fatal afternoon when we rode out together 
for the last time at Kerimabad. 

Our horses were walking, their bridles on 
their necks, our native grooms some fifty 
yards behind us on the sandy plain. 

“Jack," sho said to me (unfortunately we 
were Jack and Rosa now), “I shan't be able 
to bear it much longer. Tho mail was iu 
again this morning; all my friends are urging 
me to go down to Calcutta at once. I don’t 
think it’s fair of tno major to make a poor 
little woman live with hor heart always in 
her mouth. Oh, Jack!” she sobbed, and the 
tears run down her face, "1 am so afraid of 
the nasty blacks!" 

Now, this ; irticular remark was peculiarly 
Irritating to Maj. Crosa Coalman ling, as ho 
did, a native regiment, ho naturally disliked 
the expression. So angry hud he become tbat 
Rosa never dared to use her favorite expres- 
sion in her husband’s presence. 

“Of course it’s very rough on you, but I 
don't see any way out of it. You are the only 
European in the station, Cross and I are the 
only two men here; we can’t leave the place. 
But you shouldn’t lot It worry you; the regi- 
ment Is well affected enough." 

“It’s not true, Jack. Only this morning my 
husband told me that the regiment is on the 
point of mutiny.” 

The brute 1 No doubt lie had told her. 

“Then he was a fool for his pains!” I re- 
plied. 

“It’s very hard!” sobbed the girl; for she 
was but a girl, though she was my command- 
ing officer’s wife. 

Perhaps I remembered the first fact and 
'faygot the second when I took her hand, and, 
IkJking into her eyes, swore that I would 
lqok after hor, and that there was no danger. 

She returned the pressure; she was but act- 

I as I found out afterward. All women 
dresses, I suppose; but I did not dream 
tho pressure of hor finger tips, tho trust 
loving glance which she flung upon me 
igh her tears, was but the cursed bait

ib, if he would only let me gol” she said,

too young to die here, Jack, and to die 
ihouid have to diet” she added with a 
der. 

ere was a great deal In what she said, 
major trusted her just as far as you 
1 swing a tiger by the tail, and never let 
her out of his sight save when I took her out 
as 1 was doing now; he was but a 
pclfvffi ruffian, after all It didn’t much mat- 
tar J? fie and J were hacked to pieces, or 
worse, by the Sepoys; It was in the ordinary 



usual, and, to ray mind, that 
boded mischief, 

I had made her a promise. I suppose It 
was her only chance of escape If the major 
choose to take her out again, and she bolted 
to Murgliab, so much the bettor for her, aud 
it could do him no harm; for at the pass we 
were, scandal, even the scandal of an Indian 
station, was dead. 



woman is picturesque enough, but in one 
feature, at least, it seemed to mo rather want- 
ing in gracefulness. Oa her head is worn 
either a gaudily colored silk kerchief or a 
small iap, elaborately embroidered or strung 
with cpias. A short, rakish looking jacket of 
greeu or bluo cloth is profusely trimmed with 
gold braid. Down the back, and often falling 
within r. foot of the ground, ora long, luxuri- 
ant black trusses, usually in two braids. 
From the waist down her costume is highly 
suggestive of an Inverted balloou. Whether 
to call the garment skirt or pantaloons was 
always a questiou with me. From the waist 
downward it gets fuller and fuller until it ter- 
minates in the “bulge of the balloou,” with a 
hole iu either side at the bottom, through 
which the leet appoar. When walking, the 
“baggintss" of this garment waggles about 
like the fail of a duck, which few, I believe, 
have ever thought to be the poetry of mo- 
tion. lue Greek female, charming though 
shots, and, moreover, a devoted wife and 
mother, has her weaknesses.— Thomas Ste- 
vens— 1 ‘V oman. ” 



Of course he couldn’t 
leave, but lie might easily Uavo scut her off 
with a sergeant's guard; he could do It this 
very night even, if ha chose. But ho didn’t. 
To my mind he knew that things hod come 
to a crisis, and 1 felt that he had treated 
me badly in not taking me Into his confidence. 
3ut why should he have done so' Perhaps 
he looked ou me as Ills wife’s lover; so I was, 
In one sense. Perhaps he thought he was 
revenging himself on us both in dooming us 
to a certain aud horrid death; so 1 pondered 
as 1 entered the mess tent. Not a servant in 
tho place! 

Perhaps I was too late, after aii I ran out 
of the me^tent; as I did so, I come upon 
my own sy^-a little old man, who had been 
with me since my griffin days. He had 
nothing to do with the regiment, aud I could 
trust lnm, for he had been my confidant in 
many a stablo secret, my trainer for many an 
up country race; the man had never yet sold 
me, and he would not, I felt, betray me now. 

“Mortizza,” said I, “saddle my horse and 
the Mem Sahib’s, and bring them round to 
the front of the mess tent at once. Run!" 
I said, as tho mah hesitated. 

He disappeared without a word. 

As I returned through the mess tent I felt 
that mischief was brewing. The songs in the 
lines had ceased, and I heard a portentous 
hum of confused voices. There was no doubt 
about the matter. But my rage against the 
men, whom I felt in a few minutes would be 
In open mutiny, was as nothing to my indig- 
nation againt the major for deliberately sac- 
rificing his wife and not taking me into his 
confidence. 

‘Major," I cried as I joined the pair, 
“there’s something serious on foot; there’s 
not a'soul In the mess tent” 

He calmly looked at his watch, and smiled. 
As he did so the sound of clattering hoofs 
fell opon our oars, and Mortazza, riding my 
horse and leading Mrs. Cross’ Golf Arab, 
suddenly appeared. 

Light os a bird, Rosa sprang into the sad- 
dle. At that moment the report of a single 
musket rang In our ears, and shouts and cries, 
with the noise of a strugglo, were heard 
from the linea 

“Take my horse, major I" I cried, as I urged 
him to mount 

We were both armed. I drew my revol- 
ver, »nd forced it intojftosa’i hand.. 



The Biggest Bass ou Becord. 

There arrived In the city from Peters’ lake, 
near Cottonwood Point, in Pemiscot county, 
Mo. , the two largest block bass ever token In 
western waters. They were part of a ship- 
ment to J. W. Peters & Co., fish dealers in 
the French market, and were caught in the 
private lako with which that firm insures a 
supply of fresh fish at all seasons. The 
smaller, which weighed ten pounds and four 
ounces, was sold to a Third street caterer; 
tho larger was sent to The Globe-Democrat 
office. Capt. II C. West, state fish commis- 
sioner, in company with Mr. D. J. Blanke, 
had tho fish photographed and weighed. It 
tipped the beam at exactly eleven pounds and 
ten ounces. Both gentlemen then went be- 
fore Simon J. Arnold, the notary in Collector 
Sexton's office, and made affidavit to the 
weight. The head will be preserved In the 
museum of the fish commissioner os that of 
the largest bass on record.— St. Louis Globe-

Clilvalrio Maxims. 

Tho sacred books of Idffia contain the fol- 
lowing maxims: 

“He who despises women despises his 
mother." 

“Who i3 cursed by a woman is cursed by 
God.” 

“The tears of a woman call down to fire of 
heaven on those who make them flow.” 

“Evil to him who laughs at woman’s suffer- 
ings; God shall laugh at his prayers.” 

“It was at the prayer of a woman that the 
Creator pardoned man. Cursed be he who 
forgets it" 

“Who shall forget the sufferings of his 
mother at his birth shall be reborn in tbs 
body of an owl during three successive trans- 
migrations." 

“There is no crime more odious than to per- 
secute a woman." 

“When women ore honored the divinities 
are content; but when they are not honored 
all undertakings fail.” 

“The households cursed by women to whom 
they have not rendered tjjo homage due them 
find themselves weighed down with ruin anfi 
destroyed as if they had been struck by a0mS 
secret power." 

‘‘it is time to appreciate all things at their 
true value.”

A Merciful Judge. 

One of the keenest things ever said on the 
bench Is attributed to Judge Walton, of 
Georgia. While holding a term of the su- 
preme court at Augusta he sentenced a man 
to seven years In prison fora grave crime. 
The prisoner's counsel asked for a mitigation 
of the sentence on the ground that the pris- 
oner’s health was very poor. 

“Your honor,” said he, “lam satisfied that 
my client cannot live out half that term, and 
I beg of you to change the sentence." 

“Well, under those circumstances,'’ said 
the Jodge, “1 will change the sentenoe. I 
will make It for life Instead of seven years.” 
The prisoner chose to abide by the original 
sentence, which the judge permitted him to 
elaot— Chicago Herald.

SOCIETY NOTES. 



THE JOHNSTOWN DEBRIS- 

It Will Have to Be Laboriously Palled 
Apart and Carried Away. 

Johnstown, Pa., June 13 — Capt. Sears, 
of the U. 8- A. Engineers Corps, aooom- 
panied General Hastings on a general 
ronnd of inspection this morning- He 
saps that the massof wreckage embedded 
in the river at the raft, covering 
several placee cannot be burned and 
dynamite will not do the work, The only 
way it can be done is to put 1,000 
men to puil it apart, cart it away and bury 
the bodies as soon as they are found. It 
can be done in no other way. 

Five bodies were recovered and taken to 
the First Ward Sohool house morgue this 
morning. Two were identified — Mrs- Alioe 
Jones and Mrs. Lyon. They were found 
in the ruins at the Cambria Iron Compa- 
ny’s works and were in an advanced state 
of decomposition and will be buried 
mmed iately .

through the air. It is a common superstition 
with them that the left eye of every chief 
after his death oecomes a star. Shungie, a 
celebrated New Zealand king, said be had on 
one occasion eaten the left eye of a great 
chief whom he had killed in battle for the 
purpose of thus increasing the glory of his 
own eye. Sometimes, apparently, it was 
thought that these was a separate immor- 
tality for each of the eyes of the dead — the 
left ascending to heaven as a star, the right, 
in the form of a spirit, taking flight for 
Reinga. 

The people of the Sandwich Islands held a 
confused medley of notions as to another 
life. Tho current fancy was that the souls of 
tho chiefs were led by a god whose name de- 
notes the ‘‘eyeball of the sun,” to a life in the 
heavens, while plebeian souls went down to 
Akta, a lugubrious underground abode. i 

The Kamchatkans send all the dead alike 
to a subterranean elysium, where they shell 
find again their wives, clothes, tools, huts and 
where they shall fish and hunt. 

The Druids' conception of the future life is 
that tho soul, on being divested of its earthly 
envelope, is borne aloft The clouds are com- 
posed of tho souls of lately deceased men. 
They fly over the heads of armies, inspiring 
courage or striking terror. Not yet freed 
from terrestrial n Sections, they mingle in 
the passions and affairs of men. Vainly they 
try to soar above the atmosphere; an im- 
xi -sable wall of sapphire resists their wings. 

In the iu  -on millions of souls traverse tre- 
mendous plains of ice, losing all perception 
but that of simple existence, forgetting the 
adventures they have passed through and ore 
about to recommence. 

The Scandinavians ljc-lidVed that “high up 
in the 6ky is Odin’s hell, the magnificent Val- 
halla, or 'tern ,de ot tho slain. No women 
being ever mentioned as gaining admission to 
Valhalla or joining in tho joys of tho Ein- 
heriar, some winters have affirmed that ac- 
cording to Scandinavian faith women had no 
immortal souls, or at all events were ex- 
cluded from heaven. The charge is baseless. 
* * * Valhalla was the exclusive abode of 
the most daring champions, but Valhalla was 
not the whole of heaven." 

The Egyptian idea of the abode cf the soul 
is not very alluring. It is “led by the god 
Shoth into Amenthe, the infernal world, the 
entrance to w'hich lies in the extreme west on 
the further side of the sea, where the sun

town, in a small schooner called the Patriot*.

of CoL Burr, went on by land to accompanj

with his daughter and Mr. Green on board! 
was communicated by letter from Governor 
Alston to CoL Burr, and he looked forworn

following statements; 

Thirty hands are engaged in the work 
of removing the deiid bodies from the odd 
Presbyterian burial grounds to other 
cemeteries, aud up to date nearly nine hun- 
dred have been removed. Several of the 
bodies, buried for more than a quarter of

state of preservation. In one instance, 
that of the body of a lady, buried thirty- 
two years ago in a costly silk robe, noth- 
ing was 1-ft but tne hair, bones, and a few 
ashes, wtrle the dress was as good as the 
day it wrs bought, the fold3 lying as 
smoothly and perfect as when placed in 
the coffin. Iu another casket the body of 
a beautifnl girl was found, cot yet identi- 
fied, and has been termed the “bride.”

It then comes to the final trial in the hall of 
the Two Truths, the approving and the con-

hall of tho Double Justice, tho rewarding and

The most ancient Hindoo doctrine of tho

ono of the Orientals. .And again, “A hun-

To say that one person in this city de-

rise to the myth of Elysium.” 

Tho Mahometan paradise is found as soon 
ns the righteous have passed Sirat, or 
the bridge of the world. They obtain 
their first taste of their approcching felicity 
by a refre-iiing draught from “Mahomet’s 
Pond.” Then comes paradise, an ecstatic 
dream of pleasure, filled with sparkling 
streams, honeyed fountains, shady groves, 
precious stones, all flowers and fruits, bloom- 
ing youths. circulating goblets, black eyed 
houris, incense, brilliant birds, delightsouio 
music, unbroken peace. A Sher.h tradition 
makes the prophet promise to Ali twelve pal- 
aces in paradise, built of gold and 6ilver 
bricks, laid in a cement of musk and amber. 

The Mexican idea was that souls neither 
good nor bad, or whose virtues and vices 
balanced each other, were to enter medium 
state of idleness and empty content. Tho 
wicked, or those dying in any of certain 
enumerated modes cf death, went to Mietlau, 
a dismul ball within the earth. The souls of 
those struck by lightning or dying by any of 
a given list cf lUseaies, also the souls of chil- 
dren, war*, transformed to a remote elysium, 
Tlalocan. 

The ultimate heaven was reserved for war- 
riors who bravely fell in battle, for women 
who died in Labor, for those offered in the 
temples of the gods and for a few others. 
Those passed immediately to the house of the 
sun, their chief god, whom they accompanied 
for a term of years with songs, dances aud 
revelry in his circuit around tho sky. Then 
animating tho forms of birds of plumage they 
lire- as beautiful songsters among tho flow- 
ers, now bp earth, now in hoaven, at their 
pTufs&re. 

Tho belief the best established among our 
American Indians is that of the immortality 
of the soul. There is only one well authenti- 
cated instants where all notion of a future 
state appears to have been entirely wanting 
—a small clan, tho Lower Pcndal Oreilles. 
This people had no burial ceremonies, no no- 
tion of a. life hereafter, no word for soul. 

Some Dakota tribes Imagined four souls, 
with separate destinies, one to wander about 
tho world, ono to watch the body, the tim'd 
to hover around the village aud the highest 
to go to the spirit land. The seat of the soul 
vas variously located. The Costa Ricans 
plcoe to this day the powers of thought and 
memory in tho liver. Most usually the head 
was regarded as the vital member. The 
stoicism of tbe Indian, especially the Northern 
tribes. In the face of death has often been tbe 
topic of poets, and has often been interpreted 
to be a fearlessness of that event This is by 
no incans true. Savages have an nwful hor-

Can Women be Seal lo the Workhouse 
for Belli Larceny? 

Probably one of tbe most important 
points ever raised in the law reoords of 
this city, was tried hefore Judge Morton 
yesterday. Nelms Brothers, attorneys for 
Mattie Mack, a c*-gro woman, who was 
Bent to the Workhouse by Recorder Wal- 
ton, one day this week, on a charge of 
petit larceny, swore out a writ of habeas 
corpns. claiming that she was unlawfully 
impritoned. The question whs presented 
to Judge Morton, who took it under ad- 
visement. The point raised was one that 
had been passed upon by the Court of 
Appeals, which decidtd that a woman 
cannot be sentenced to hard labor for 
petit larceny, and upon this 
the writ of habeas oorpns whb 6worn out. 
Tie Recorder’s Court in the past few 
years has sent away any nurabr-r of n -- 
gro women to *he workhouse for ped* 
larcenv and if Judge Merton rules that 
they are illegally bold it will present h 
new point in law, and the question trill 
naturally arise as to what will become of 
this class of offenders woen they find that 
there is no law in the oity oonrt to reach 
them.

soldier and impliedly reprimanding Pem-

incident, and When visiting Lexington 
went ont to Fajtlawn to call on its owner. 

The incidents related by Dt. Hnnt and 
General Withers doting the visit referred 
to areas fresh in memory as if related yes- 
terday; hot alas, about ». year-ago Dr. 
Hnnt was called to the silent majority. 
whioH General Withers has just joined — 
Dr. Boyd is also dead. - * ^ 7 : • 

Before the war General Withers was a 
wealthy man, but the fiery tide that s wept 
over the Sonny Booth bereft him of all 
except the caked lands of his plantations. 
To recover from snob otter rnin was ap- 
parently a hopeless task. Coming to 

Kentucky be met his brother at Cynthiana 
who said to him: “Yon fonght for the 

canse which I believed was right, and have 
lost all. I stayed at home and 
have made some money; I have ten then 
sand dollars in gold which I want yon to 
take and if yon ever pay me it ie all right, 
if not, all right.” Such timely assistance 
may have been the foundation on whiob 
Gen. Withers has bnilt his splendid fortune, 
bnt bis plock and indomitable courage 
would have won onder any circumstances. 

As to the value of his estate we can 
form no idea. It will consist of Fairlawn, 
and  ts fine trotting stock; plantations in 
Lonisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Yir 
ginia, and a gold mine in either Colorado 
or California which he regarded as of 
great value. 

Gen. Withers was among the first to 
recognize the fntore of the Trotter, and 
showed his faith by his works. When he 
purchased Almont' of Richard West, pay- 
ing $15,nco for him, many people shook 
their heads and thought it a vary injndi- 
oions trade. With high bred brood-mares 
in his paddooks, the produce of the great 
horse gave Fairlswo a reputation wnioh 
contributed greatly to the success of the 
breeding farm. Aberdeen added to the 
feme of the stock farm. We believe that 
Almont was General Withers' favorite; 
possibly Aberdeen was next, bnt he re- 
garded Happy Medium with great favor. 

Fairlawn was kept in magnifioant style. 
Its fine barn with stained glass windows, 
the stalls and walls inside being wain- 
sootted with various colored woods was 
the wonder of visitors who came to Lex- 
ington. The woodland was the peaceful 
abode of sqnirrels and wild birds, and 
woe to the boy or dog that disturbed 
them. 

Probably the only time General With- 
ers was ever in politios was when he ran 
W delegate to the Constitutional Con- 
tention from Harrison connty, being de- 
feated by only a few votes. As a lawyer

When a Sensational Turn ot the fuse 
Is Htd In a Cincinnati Court. 

Cincinnati, Jane 16. — A sensational 
scene ^as enacted this mciiiug in Judge 
Ontoalt’s Court, thb Common Pleas. He 
has had in hearing and onder considera- 
tion for several months an. unusual habeas 
oorpns case, where two women ; 
claim to be the mother of tbe 
ohild for whom the writ was issued. 
Miss Katie Sohaller avared that she 
gave birth to an illegitimate child and 
placed it in the hands of Mrs. Bnmbsor, 
the midwife, and that Mrs. Bnmbsor 
plaoed it in the hands of Mr. W. J. White 
to be adopted. Subsequently Miss

accompanied by compulsory silence all 
the house, which is the rest of infants. In- 
somnia is sleeping wide awake in a state of 
irritable imbecility. It is the common lot of 
actresses and literary people who are in need 
of rest or advertising. 

A “nap" is the passing rest of a school 
teacher who is just far enough “gone” to ap- 
pear deceitful, and wide enough awake to 
catch the smart boy who thinks that all 
things are what they seem. A “doze” is the j 
hideous sleep of a man who goes to sleep with , 
his eyes wide open while you are talking to 
him , fixing upon you n glassy stare that cur- I 
dies your blood and makes you forget what I 
you were trying to say. Then he wakes up i 
and says, idiotically: “Yes, yes; just so; 
served him quite right; and then?” 

To “just drop off for a secorfl" is the term 
applied by the offender to the act of going | 
sound asleep in church with one’s head hang- | 
ing over the back of the pew, the mouth wide j 
open and the operator snoring like a house 
afire until the deacon hits him on the bead 
with a collection basket, or the choir rises to 
sing the hat hy mn. “Nodding" in church is 
sleeping clear through the entire sermon, but 
without snoring, and with head bowed ou the 
back of the pew in front, as though in prayer. 
Nobody in the whole church, by tho way, 
thinks it remotely resembles the attitude of 
prayer except the person who is “nodding.” 
To jam yourself up against your father’s 
back, kick him black and blue from withers 
to hock, crowd him out of bed twice or thrice 
i during the night, and to lie habitually across 
the middle of the bed, is the “sound sleep” of 
I boyhood. To make terrific noises with the 
nose all night long while lying like a log in 
one position is the “sweet sleep” of tho labor- 
ing man, who never gives his nose a holiday. 
To punctuate one’s slumber by sudden blood 
curdling yells in the middle of the night is 
called “Seeping” by people who quaff a flagon 
of the New England national drink called pie 
for a nightcap just before going to sleep. To 
'lose sound of the voice of the person address- 
ing you, to have the room pass in a misty 
blur before your eyes, and to sink into utter 
oblivion for about ten minutes, is called 
“yawning” by very polite people. 

To fall off the chair and rouse yourself by 
knocking your head against a corner of and- 
irons is what some people call just “closing 
the eyes.” “To feel a little drowsy” is the 
term applied to his condition by tho man 
who sleeps seven stations past tbe place 
where he wants to get off. If he doesn’t 
wake till some time the next day he admits 
that he was “sleepy.” To fold tho hands 
upon the breast, nestle the head in the folds of 
a snowy pillow, straighten the shapely limbs 
and arrange the figure gracefully, with 
lightly closed eyes to pass the night in a mist 
of pleasant dreams and entrancing visions, 
with an accompaniment of soft, regular 
breathing, scarce audible to people on the 
next block, is to sleep like a Christian, as I 
do.— Burdette in Brooklyn Eagle,

AUGUST ELECTION. x88«. 



It was a genuine shook to tbe entire 
oommanity when the announcement 
of Gen. W. T. Withers’ death 
was read in Sunday’s Tbansobipt. 
Gen. Withers was one of the be«t 
known men in Central Kentuoky, and he 
commanded the universal esteem and res- 
peat of all. 

His oharacter may be summed np in 
this: He wa3 a sincere, Christian gentle- 
man, in whom God endowed the best heart 
and brain known to human kind; he was 
a most affectionate and true hnaband and 
father, and a citizen du whose fair name 
no breath of evil-speaking was ever made; 
always honorable and fair in all his deal- 
ings, he was the embodiment of all that 
can be oonoeived as completing the model 
man and perfect gentleman. When we 
have said this there remains nothing that 
it is possible to say by way of encomium. 

Gen. Withers was bom in Oyntbiana 
abont the year 1825, and consequently at

that lady informed her that the baby she 
had was not an adopted child, 

bat was her own. The testimony 
before the court was most conflicting, bnt 
Mr. and Mrs. White brought many wit- 
nesses to show that the dispnted 
baby was theirs. They bsve had it in 
charge daring the trial. Today the Judfee 
was to render the decision, bnt Mrs. 
White ap neared in court without the 
child When asked by the oonrtwhere it 
was, Mrs. White in a determined manner 
answered : 

“Judge Ou'oalt, I was submitted to a 
severe examination the other day and f 
understood yon were going to decide 
against me and I have protected the 
child. I know the consequences and I am 
hore to abide by them, aDd if I have to 
stay in prison ten years Tam satisfied, if 
at the end of that time I have my dar-,.

lowed her till noon to consider. The reso- 
lute mother for two hours was urged by 
her attorney and friends to produce the

mained firm and went bravely to jail un-

Invention of tho Microscope. 

The invention of the compound microscope^ 
consisting of two convex lenses placed one 
above tho other, naturally soon followed the 
Invention of the telescope The simple micro- 
scope was very early known, a convex lens of 
rock crystal having been found in the ruins 
of Nineveh. The idea of the more perfect 
form of this instrument is said to have oc- 
curred to Hans Zansz, or to his son Zacharias, 
spectacle makers in Holland, about 1590. 

It is very probable, however, that the same 
idea was suggested, either accidentally or by 
way of experiment, to others. Galileo, for 
instance, tbe great Italian astronomer, it is 
saiii, had, before 1610, directed a tube fitted 
with lenses to tbe observation of small, near 
objects. He stated, shortly after this date, 
that be had been able to observe through a 
lens tbe movements of minute nnimols and 
their organs of sense. 

In a letter written in 1614 ho says that ho 
has with his microscope “seen and observed 
flies as large as sheep, and that their bodies 
were covered with hairs, and they had sharp 
claws.”— Youth’s Companion. 



A pabtx of lynchers hanged a man in 
Jefferson connty, Kan., last week, because 
they suspected him of stealing a gold 
watch and ring, whioh he denied. But 
they are horrified when people of the 
South lynch murderers and perpetrators 
of other great outrages. 



The Philadelphia Telegraph comfortg 
itself with the hope that another term o 
six years in the senate will enable \Ym.,E. 
OnANDLEB “to add to his notoriety, aud 
possibly to his wisdom and usefulness in 
public life.” Of course all things are 
“possible,” but we don’t think that Wil- 
liam is “bnilt that wav.” 



Triplets In China. 

The Chinese have a custom that when a 
woman gives birth to a triplet she must re- 
port the matter to the authorities, and they 
on their part will present her with three 
little coats, one red, one yellow and one 
green. These coats she must put on the in- 
fants in the dark, and the ones who will got 
the red and yellow coats will be exalted, 
while tbe one with the green coat will be 
ignoble. Such events are, however, of the 
rarest occurrence, and are regarded as mar- 
vels of nature. The other day a case still 
more wonderful occurred at Pekin, where a 
woman gave birth to a pair of twins The 
family lives in a village west of Chiang Yi 
Gate, anil U surnamed Yang. Yang had his 
son married, and to the great astonishment 
of the household, the wife gave birth to a 
pair of twins The mother-in-law, fearing 
deficient nourishment, decided to keep the 
two boys and cast away the girls, which was 
done, but a neighbor, ont of compassion, 
picked them up and took them home. This 
affair created much gossip in the capital.— 
Chinese Times. 



□ Thebe is oomplaint among Republicans 
that “original Habbison men” are riot suf- 
ficiently “reoognized” by the administra-

had to be made to them to secure their 
support. They had better not be so “pre- 
vious” in committing themselves next 

time.

A WIm Mother Bird. 

Birds sometimes seem to have more than 
instinct — it looks like reason. A young girl 
writes to St. Nicholas the following pretty 
story abou t a Uttl e phoebe bird;. It built its 
nwrotl'-a leugG'&Vcr the door of A Louse In 
this neighborhood. When the little birds 
were still quite small, the lady of the house 
was standing on the porch, and seeing one of 
them fall to the ground she picked it up and 
put it back into the nest. A few days later 
she saw one of the little birds fall again; bui 
this time it fell only ten or twelve inches, 
where it stopped and hung in the air. The 
lady climbed (ip to the nest, and found that 
every one of the baby birds had a horse hair 
tied around its leg and then fastened to the 
nest. 

Was this the mother's way of keeping them 
safe at home when she was gone? 



t.'.iit n pTOTTTTTrttRl had been left in the 
wound, which became euoysted as the 1. 
wound healed. For some reason, not : 
known, this euoysted protection must 
have given away and suppuration was set 
up. At the time General Withers' life 
was dtepaired of. His old physician, Dr. 
Boyd, ot Jackson, Miss., came tb Lexing- 
ton and nursed the invalid back to con- 
valescence. Dr Boyd camp purely as a 
friend, and refused to accept iuij compen- 
sation. . 

Although Gen. Withers beonme nearly 
well the disposition of this wouno to 
again suppurate was kept np; each suc- 
oeediug attaok reducing his vitality. The 
last attack was brought on by exposure 
in Florida. Gen. Withers was in fair 
bealtn, for him, but one day he went with 
a gentleman a few miles from his planta- 
tion to attend a public meeting While 
there a "Noither” sprang np and he wts 
completely chilled, getting home in an 
exhaasteu condition. 

Arriving at Lexington he was for a few 
days somewhat better, but the suppurat- 
ing continued and gradually exhausted 
his vitality. Saturday night hia sufferings, 
which had been inteuse all along, some- 
what abated; and he lay on the oonoii 
quietly. A little res: was snoh a luxury to 
him that he wasi not disturbed, and by 
midnight the lamp of life was burnt ont. 
hie death occurring so quietly and pain- 
lessly that it was scarcely known when 
the end came. 

When quite a young man Gen. Withers 
was married to the daughter of Governor 
Sharkey of Mississippi. His home as 
well as tha f of his father being in Jackson. 
His father William Withers was murdered 
in Jackson during the war by some Fed- 
eral soldiers. 

When the war broke ont Gen. Withers 
espoused the cause of the South entering 
the artillery service, aud rising to the 
rank of Brigadier General. He was a 
trusted offioer who always did the doty of 
a soldier. We have heard him reoonnt 
the very interesting events of his military 
oareer, that ooonrred dating the war of 
tbe rebellion. A few years ago Dr. James 
M. Hnnt, of Vioksbnrg, who had been 
division surgeon in the same command 
with Gen. Withers, visited his brother-in- 
law the Editor of the TaAnsoBirr, in 
Lexington, and they went bnt .to see the 
General at his elegant home, Fairlawn. 
To hear General Withers and Dootor 
Hnnt reoonnt the -incidents of the war in 
whioh they took pert was a treat. 

Among other things we reoall . an inci- 
dent whioh shouted Gen. Withers’ charac- 
ter as a soldier. , At The siege of Yioks-

artillery inside :the works. When Gen.

A Shrewd Widow. 

A veteran correspondent recalls an amus- 
ing incident of his early years. Ho r cmem- 
bers going to a man’s funeral with his grand- 
father, the parson. Tho poor widow seemed 
to mourn the loss of her husband very much, 
and tho minister vainly tried to comfort her. 
She said she had “got to live a poor lone 
widow all the days of her life." The boy 
cried to see her cry. After returning from 
the grave she called his grandfather aside 
and said: “Parson Eaton, I hope you won't 
say anything about my telling you that I 
should live a poor lone widow all tho rest of 
my life, for I may change my mind.” Like 
a 6hrowd general, she left a way open for re- 
treat, and she soon found occasion to use it.

The last issue of the University Tablet 
has an artiole in whioh occurs the declara- 
tion that “Murder is a fine art.” The 
Tablot denounces tbe lax administration 
of laws which lets the rich and influential 
murderer go free while it severely pun- 
ishes the poor devil who imitates their 
example by taking a homau life. To get 
a murderer off from the oonsequenoes of 
his crime is tbe greatest of the fine arts 
of the present day. Here are two things 
for publio sentiment to most severely 
condemn: One ie the “fine art of mur- 

dering” and the other is the “fine art of 
setting murderers at liberty." The need 
of reform is most keenly felt here in Fay- 
ette oonnty. Take the files of the Tbau- 
eoBiri for a year commencing June 1st, 
1888, and the number of “killings” is 
appalling. It will not lack much of 
averaging one for every fortnight. And 
yet the last hanging in Fayette connty 
was poor Tuck Aoee. By .the way Tuck 
did not have the backing of wealth or 
family. 

One peculiarity notioed in the examina 
tion of nearly 300 oitizens at to their 
competency to sit on the O'Brien trial, 
only two expressed any sornples against 
the administration of oapital punishment. 
In other words 298 of the 800 believed in 
it, and it is fair to presume there are not 
ten men in Fayette oonnty who are op- 
posed to the death penalty. Yet the state 
of pnblio sentiment is eaoh that with all 
onr murderers we do not have any hang- 
ings. It is time to begin the proper en- 
forcement of the law. 

C Kentucky is inviting immigration from 
ithe North and East. The State has every 
/ohanoe for a great era of progress, bnt 
'citizens of other States are not going to 
come here if we oannot assure reasonable 
protection to life. Each prospective im- 
migrant will stndy the situation before 
leoiding to oome here. If he reads of 
■ie destruction of human life and sees no 
Kcoonnts of commensurate punishment, he 
will not feel disposed to oome here. And 
the failnre to pnnish orime will stand in 
the way, an insurmountable barrier to 
progress. 

There Is every reason to demand the 
etriot execution of the law, and none 
avorable to injuring it.

’Hour They Traveled Long Ago. 

In the reign of tho Emperor Theodosius 
(who died A. D. 376), a magistrate of high 
rank had to go on important business from 
Antioch to Constantinople. He began bis 
journey one evening about sunset, mid by 
the time the sun went down the next day he 
was in Cappadocia, 165 miles from Antioch. 
On the sixth day, about noon, he was at his 
journey’s end. Tho whole distance traveled 
was 065 miles. Houses were erected on the 
great highways at intervals of about six 
miles, and each was provided with forty 
horses. Those only who had an Imperial 
mandate might use these horses, bnt with 
their help it was easy to travel a hundred 
miles a day with comfort. 

Supposing, now, a great general stationed 
at Newcastle had been obliged to repair to 
Jerusalem, he would have found an excellent 
road tho whole way, except where it was in- 
terrupted by the English channel, the Alp* 
and the Adriatic. He would go thus: New- 
castle, York, London, Sandwich, Boulogne, 
Rheims, Lyons, Milan, Romo, Brunduslum, 
Dyrrachium, and so across the Adriatic to 
Constantinople, thence to Ancyra, Tarsus, 
Antioch, Tyre and Jerusalem In all 4,060 
Roman, or 3,740 English miles.— Chatterbox. 



pneumonia usually strikes the healthy, ro-

As a general rule, the healthy people pay tho 
least attention to tho condition of their health, 
believing that their constitution is sufficiently 
strong to withstand all ordinary exposure. 
On the other hand, the weakly person or in- 
valid takes more than the usual precaution 
against even the most ordinary exposure.

Just one year ago last Thursday, Tom 
O’Brien was acquitted in the Cirouit Conrt 
for the murder of Henry Metoalf, and 
today his life is in jeopardy on a charge 
more horrible than harnan mind oan im- 
agine. 

Alter two days of tedious work m se- 
lecting a jury to try the oase, the labor 
was huallj'. accomplished, aud the oase is 
now ready; for trial. At 2 o’olook yester- 
day the Court met, after selecting the 
jnry, and the Commonwealth an- 
nounced"^ themselves as prepared 
to '-progress with the oase. The 
oourt room was fairly paoked with per- 
sons anxious to hear what would be the 
line of - proaeoution. When prosecutor 
Bronston arose to present the oase in be- 
half of the commonwealth, a hush fell 
upon the orowd and every one extended 
their necks to hear what was said, and the 
by Mr. Bronston fairly oar- 
he orowd all through the address, 
and be faifly roasted the aooused in ,a 
manner that fairly couvinoed every  Jn8* 
-^f the goRt of the aooused. While the at- 
torney was delivering the address the de- 
fendant trembled and for the first time 
siuoe the terrible charge has been plaoed 
against him, 

O’uaiEN BUNO HIS HEAD 

And with every sentence seemed to be- 
come paier and betray muoh emotion. 
Mr. Bronston opened the oase by a review 
of the murder. He stated that on the 
morning of April lat, the community was 
horrified,to hear that a young g;irl had 
been murdered in her room daring the 
nig()inil a most horrible manner. The 
young girl that had met such an awful 
fate was Betty Shea, a domestic in the 
family of Mr. John H. Woolfork, whose 
residehoe is at the corner of Limestone 
and Third streets. 

The morning was olondv and wet, mak- 
ing the entire surroundings of the scene 
of the murder quite gloomy. At first the 
community oould not be made to believe 
that such a crime oould b» committed in 
a civilized community like ours, but soon 
their doubts were dispelled by the arrest 
of Tom O’Brien, charged with the orime. 
The ofllcers when notified of the murder 
went to the house aud in the pooket of a 
dress worn by the deceased found a letter 
signed “Tom,” and upon this clew they 
arrested Tom O’Brien. When he was 
placed in the stationhouse, the first per- 
son to oall upon him was a 

particular friend, to whom he said there 
was no use denying the faot 
that he was with the girl that night, bat 
that he knew nothing of the murder. 
When first arrested his first snquiry was 
upon whnt charge, and when told by the 
officials that it was for the murder of Betty 
Hhea he replied “there’s nothing in that.” 
The officials having the matter in charge 
a few days after went to the houBe of Lil- 
lie Moberly on Dewees stteet, itfhere 
O’Brine was when arrested, and after 
making a search of the premises finally 
suooeeded in finding a pair of deadly 
“knuoks” stored away in a bureau-drawer. 
After finding the “knnoka” they were 
plaoed in the hands of a dootor who went 
to the honse where the dead body lay and 
compared the wounds of the head with 
the “knuoks,” and found them to oorrea- 
pond. The ooila at pnoe began to tighten 
about the neck of the acoused, and soon 
it was discovered that a secret marriage 
had taken place in September previous, 
between the deceased and O’Brien. The 
defendant at first made light of the oharge 

I ially when proof waa produoed he 
ted that anoh was the faot. In the 
time, after being married to the de- 
1 he waa in correspondence with a 
; girl by the name of Mattie Laugh- 
10 resides near Rnsbville, Indiana, 
as engaged to be married to her in 
Letters that had been written by 
fendant to the girl were in the pos- 
n of the Commonwealth, in one of 
the defendant said that “even 
wonld not separate them.” He 
rard wrote to Maggie Langhlin, sis • 
his betrothed, in whioh he oalled 
lear sister,” stating that he and 
e were to be married in May. 
it enrnmer he said to one of his most 
ate friends that he was playing for a 
nt did not think he oonld make it. 
nnary last he oame to this same 
friend and told him that the girl he had 
told him about some time ago he had got 
in a delicate condition and wanted to 
know of his friend if he knew how to get 
rid of the kid. When told no be replied: 
“I hav e either got to get rid of the kid or 
marry, the girl, and d— n me If I’ll do that.”

TH E# LEXIN G TON TE^SBCRIPT. THURSDAY* JUNE 20 



SHOWING THE BOY, 



WEEKLY TRANSCRIPT, 



DCNKARDS AT WORSHIP, 



THE CITY TIMEKEEPER, 



Be Didn't Know How to Manage the Heller, 
So tbe Owner Demonstrated. 

On ft balmy spring morning, just as the 
robins, which were ont arrangin'; to nest 
again, were caroling joyous carols in the leaf- 
less tress and all nature was answering tbe 
breakfast bell, a singular or rather a double 
sight might have been witnessed on tbe outer 
confines of Seventeenth street. In double, 
side-by-side-two-souls-with-but-a-single- 
thought-six-legs-that-beat-like-one style, there 
went cavorting down the street a small, mouse 
colored heifer, and with her a well known and 
exceedingly popular ticket agent of the city, 
whom I shall not particularize farther than 
to say that he is called Charlie for short, and 
that everybody, including his wife, likes him. 

It seems that Charlie possesses a 3-year-old 
Jersey cow, a gentle creature with large, pa- 
tient eyes, a quiet disposition and a most 
lovable cow on general principles. The win- 
ter being over and gone and tbe grass that 
greens in tbe spring having arrived, Charlie 
thought he would bring the Jersey out into 
society, and arranged for pasture privileges 
for her down on Franklin avenue. Having 
thus provided for her summer vacation, he 
ticketed her through by means of a small 
boy, who for a suitable cash remuneration 
agreed to hie with her to the pastures green 
each morning, and then to hie her home at 
night. But the attempt was a failure, and 
the boy reported that she would neither lead 
nor follow, and that he could not run such 
excursion train as that. 

Charlie knew— did not guess— that the boy 
lied; that the gentle Jersey could bo relied 
on to calmly follow any reasonable schedule, 
and so notified the boy that the next morn- 
ing he would lead her himself and show the 
youth how the thing was done. Thus it was 
that on the morning in question the procession 
started, the Jersey and her owner in the van, 
and the small boy bringing up the rear, a 
silent but interested spectator. 

Confident that all would go well, Charlie 
attached the rope, one end of which was 
around the cow’s horns, to his own good 
right arm. This, he informs me, was not 
because he had any suspicions of the cow’s 
docility, but in order that he might walk 
calmly along and enjoy the beautiful morn- 
ing time without fear of dropping the bell 
rope. 

He enjoyed it. 

The birds sang sweetly, the Jersey ambled 
placidly, and ail was serene for about half 
the distance when the small boy came up to 
congratulate Charlie on his success. 

He congratulated. 

So did the cow. 

TTith a wild toss of her gentle head, and an 
exclamation of pained surprise at the boy’s 
presence, she broke away. 

So did Charlie. 

But the rope held. , 

And as the procession went whltlihg down 
the erstwhije peaceful avenue, jt presented 
golden gleams and dun colored j hades; man 
and cow; ticket agent and heifer larne mad, 
tumultuous onward rush. 

The train was running wild ! 

In vain did the conductor tuj^ML'Ie bell 
rope, in vain signal to the enginj^^t'slow 
down." The Jersey’s blood ond^^H^up, 



Living in a Honse Full of Clocks, Old 
New, Curious awl Unique. 

Like the driftwood scattered along the 
bants of a river, there are many curious 
characters to bo found in the nooks and 
comers of this great city. Amoug these is 
the city timekeeper, whose duty it is to see that 
all of the corporation clock* keep good time. 
Tall anil spare in frame, with scanty locks 
whitened by the lapse of years, this old man 
winds up the big clock in the cupola of the 
olty hall, and climbs up into the high tower 
of Jofferson market for the same purpose. He 
also looks after Mayor Grant's clock and 
those in the aldennanic chamber. It is by 
one of his clocks that the precise hour, min- 
ute and second of adopting the tax levy is 
determined. 

The city timekeeper has also charge of all 
the clocks in tbe finance department, the 
street and park departments, the courts of 
sessions, all of the district, civil and the po- 
lice courts. He is very seldom seen, even by 
those governed by his clocks, as ha makes his 
rounds at a very early hour. Few who do 
meet tbe old man imagine that be is a city 
official. 

John McCarten is a native of Dunpatrick, 
In the north of Ireland, where he was bom in 
the year 1817, when the battle of Waterloo 
was still fresh in the minds of men. Though 
now over 70, be is quite active and has been 
the city timekeeper for nearly fifteen years. 
He learned the trade of watch and clock 
making in his native town, and has passed all 
his life among clocks, and is a walking ency- 
clopedia on the history and progress of clock 
making. Coming to New York some forty 
yeare ago, be has been in business ever since, 
but uow his principal revenue is derived from 
the core of the city’s clocks and those of pri- 
vate Individuals. 

A World reporter visited the old man at 
his home, No. 302 West Thirty -seventh street, 
and at once found himself in clock land. On 
entering the hallway the visitor is confronted 
by an old and evidently valuable time piece, 
while another looms up from the top of the 
basement stairs. Looking up, the eye en- 
counters more clocks, and, as the hour of 3 
Is trembling on the verge of eternity, a mul- 
titude of unseen clocks begin tolling tbe 
strokes. But it is in the parlor that John 
McCarten keeps his chiefest and choicest 
treasures. In one corner stands a large 
“grandfather” clock of Holland manufacture 
and belonging to the time of the First Em- 
pire, when Bonaparte upset and gave away 
thrones. This one strikes the hours aud half 
hours on separate bells, and the dial contains 
a monthly calendar. Over the silver faced 
dial stands a figure of old Father Time, mow- 
ing away with his scythe, while the pendu- 
lum movement is indicated by a group of 
dancers. In an opposite cornel - stands an- 
other of these tall Dutch clocks, and it bears 
the name of a famous Amsterdam house. 
There are three silver bells amoug its mech- 
anism to indicate tbe hour, half aud quarter 
hours, with a weekly and monthly calendar, 
a dial showing the phases of tbe moon and 
many other quaint devices. The cases of 
these two clocks are of rare woods, richly in- 
laid and decorated with gilt carved figures 
and tracery. 

On the mantel beside a bust of Daniel 
O’Connell is an English clock, and beside it 
another over 100 years old. On the wall near 
the piano hongs an old Flemish painting, the 
steeple of the church in tbe village scene hav- 
ing a niiniatdre dock In active movement. 
On brackets in the corners, between the win- 
dows, over the doors, standing on the tables 
and piano aud even on chairs, are more clocks, 
all of them rare ana valuable. Down stairs 
In the basement, where Mr. McCarten has his 
workshop, tbore ire more clocks, English, 
French, German, Italian and Swiss. Some 
of thesd are very old, others comparatively 
new and fresh, but they are all considered 
Measures by this old clockmaker. 

“Yes, I have plenty of clocks,” said John 
McCarlen, as he lifted a clock from a chair 
for his visitor. “I don't know how many 
there are, for they ore scattered all over the 
house. Being all of foreign make they are not 
very marketable, because American clocks 
are so cheap; but these clocks of mine are 
fine time keepers and very curious in their 
make. Cloclis are a good deal like children. 
If you take good care of them aud use them 
gently they will respond to your touch and 
be on their best behavior. Neglect them end 
they soon grow irregular and get dissipated 
and nnreiiabla I get $750 a year for attend- 
ing to the corporation clocks, and liesides 
that, have regular routes to look after clocks 
for private customers. There is no telling 
how many clocks there are in Now York city, 
but I don't doubt that there is over oue mill- 
ion running, for some families keep as many 
as a dozen. One of my customers has three 
In his parlor, two in the library, two more in 
the dining room, and there-isn’t a room in the 
house without one. As I keep them going 
correctly it is like listening to a chime of bells 
when they negin striking the hour of uoou.”

STRANGE AND SIMPLE RITES OF THIS 
MEEK AND DEVOTED SECT. 



MR. GEORGE KIEFER’S FIND IN THE 
GRAVES OF AN EXTINCT RACE. 



Evin if the southern people had, as 
falsely charged, bulldozed a few negroes 
cut of their votes on speoial occasions, is 
that as bad as the government bulldozing 
a tribe of Indians into the surrender cf 
tbeir laud? 



CHARMING AND GROTESQUE ICE- 
LANDIC TRADITIONS. 



Tlir Follower* of  1 mk U-taMi-h * Society 

in Chicago - Tin. Wu-.hiug of Feet and 

Other Peculiar Observances — A Demure 

Choir Leader. 

In the plain, one story meeting house on 
Oakley avenue, just oft' Jack. so a street, there 
met a small congregation of that peculiar re- 
ligious sect known os the Dunkards. A soci- 
ety of them was formed Sunday, and meet- 
ings to knit the membership more closely to- 
gether are being held. The congregation 
numbered twenty-five or thirty persons, 
all apparently from the common walks of 
life. An exceeding plainness of dress and 
speech prevailed among them. The women 
wore dresses of dark stuffs and black sun 
bonnets, and the elderly women, In some 
cases, white caps. Their dress was unrelieved 
by ornament or jewelry of any kind, though 
two or three wore bonnets of more conven- 
tional fashion. 

The men had no distinctive dress. jL few 
wore broad brimmed hats. Op a front bench 
demurely sat a fresh cheeked girl clad in a 
garment of somber brown, her sunny curls 
peeping out from the shadows of a black 
satin sun bonnet. She now and then stole a 
coquettish glance in tbe direction of the 
“amen” corner, where sat a robust young 
man with his wide brimmed hat outspread 
upon his knees. There were several young 
women and two or three young men in the 
audience. The pretty girl on the front bench 
led the singing in good old fashioned tunes in 
a shrill treble voice. 

SIMPLE BUT IMPRESSIVE SERVICES. 

The services were simple in character. 
They were initiated by tbe singing of “Jesus, 
Lover of My Soul.” The leader then prayed, 
while every one in the room knelt in sup- 
pliance. After another hymn, tbe Rev. D. 
L. Miller, of Mount Morris colony, preached 
from the text: “Now abideth faith, hope and 
charity, but the greatest of these is charity.” 
No references were made to tbe peculiar 
practices of the church. The sermon was 
such un exposition of the doctrine of Cliristian 
love as might fall from the lips of any orthodox 
Protestant clergyman. It was delivered di- 
dactically and without any of the pious fer- 
vor and ecstasy common to the extreme 
sects of diss.n.ers. Another hymn and prayer 
after tbe sermon closed tho services. The 
preacher came down from the pulpit and 
mingled with the members of his little flock. 
He saluted the brethren with a kiss and a 
hand shake. The men also kissed each other, 
and so did tho sisters among themselves. 

“You see we are uot so very different from 
other peopb,” said the Rev. Mr. Miller. 
“There is a great deal of ridiculo indulged in 
on our account. The reportei-3 who come to 
our meetings treat us pretty roughly some- 
times, and there are many wrong notions 
about us current among those who ought to 
know better. George Alfred Townsend has 
written a novel in which the scene of the 
story is laid in one of our communities. He 
was very inaccurate in what be said of us. 
Most people think we are a sect of commun- 



The Reward Which Awaits tbe Valorous 

Warrior— Literal Translations That Rob 

tbe Toet of His Fet Themes— Beer and 

Fork, Instead of Nectar and Ambrosia. 

An old Icelandic romance tells us that 
there is a rock in Iceland where people who 
were sick or otherwise wretched used to be- 
take themselves, and thence leap down to cer- 
tain death, and as certain a reception into 
the halls of joy prepared for the brave, add- 
ing: “It is useless, therefore, to give our- 
selves up to groans and complaints, or to put 
our relatives to needless expense, Bince wq 
can easily follow the example of our fathers, 
who have gone by the way of this rock.” In 
Sweden there ore several of these rocks, threel 
of which bear the name of Valhalla, the war- 
rior’s heaven, because they were used aifl a 
sort of a vestibule to that glorious hall of 
Odin. 

One of these rocks, called Stafva Hall, used 1 
to be tbe scene of remarkable annual festi- 
vals. A number of people, after singing and' 
feasting, and entering fully into tbe dancing 
and general merriment, would throw them-! 
selves from the cliff Into the lake below, in 
the same manner as the classic writers tell 
that the Scythians and Hypoboreans used to 
do. But if noneof these reliefs wereat hand, 
and a natural death was unavoidable, as was 
frequently the case after Christianity bad 
put an end to these practices, heroes generally: 
consoled themselves by putting on their com-- 
plete armor, thus meeting their end fully 
equipped for battle, as a sort of protest againstl 
the ignominious death farced upon them 
against their will. 

THE HOUSE OF GLADNESS. 

The reward of all this valor awaits tho 
warrior in the dwelling of Odin and Glad-| 
sheim (house of gladness), where in the glit- 
tering hall, Valhalla, Allfather gathers the: 
souls of all who died the death of heroes. 
Over the field of battle hover the Valkyrie*, 
maids of Odin, who choose the champions to 
be honored by death, and conduct them to' 
this abode of perpetual joy. Here the ceiling,! 
splendid with shields, rests on columns of 
spears, while over the benches hang glisten- 
ing coats of mail. This dwelling stands ini 
the shining grove of Glaser, where every leaf 
is of pui-o red gold. That is why gold i* 
sometimes called Glaser’s leaves. 

On the roof of Valhalla, feeding on the 
leaves of tho tree Lerad (the protector) J 
stands a goat which yields an abundance of 
mead for gods and heroes; and feeding from 1 
the same tree is the stag Eikthyrnor (knotty; 
homed), from whose antlers drips so much 
water that it fills thirty-six rivers, twelve of; 
which water the celestial plains; twelve the 
abodes of men and twelve the chill regions of 
Niflheim, where reigns Hela or Hel, who takes 
charge of all souls not having made their 
exit from the body by the prescribed route.j 
In Valhalla swords serve to warn the inhabi- 
tants, and the whole palace la resplendent 
with gold 

The amusements of the blest are quite ini 
accord with the viows they entertained in 
life, for we are told that every day, os soon 
as they are dressed, they ride out to the field 
of battle and there cut each other to pieced 
until near meal time, when, presto I they put 
their various fragments together again in 1 
proper order, like so many animated puzzlej 
cards, don their armor, mount their steeds' 
,fod prance amicably tack to Valhalla, ini 
time for dinner. There they are served atf 
table by the Valkyries, the same fair ones* 
who, hovering over tho earthly field of fray,| 
first choose them to enter this Paradise of the 
brave. As fast as the dishes are emptied! 
these maidens fill them again with meat or 
with mead, for neither the food nor the drink 
ever gives out J 

But to say, ns some writers do, that thoy| 
drink from the skulls of tbeir enemies Is 
neither truth nor reason;, for their enemies, 1 
if they died honorably, are in Valhalla, and 
of course using their skulls for normal pur-! 
poseo. If they died ingloriously, thej arei 
wearing all their bones in Niflheim. Tho lit- 
eral translation of King Ragnar Lodbrok’s 
dying utterance, which has caused the curi-j 
ous mistake, is “Soon shall we drink ale out 
of the curved branches of the skull,” refer- 
ring, no doubt, to tbe horns of anlmalsj 
which were the common drinking cups of tho 
Oilinic worshipers. 

Now, 1 am afraid that literal translation 
has let out a fact dangerous to the project* 
of any poet lying in wait for an illustration! 
I have uot only robbed him of a pet horror 
in depriving him of tho use of the traditional 
gruesome beaker, but have mentioned ole a* 
the drink of gods aud heroes 1 Neverthele«sJ 
like little Goorge, I cannot tell a He, and ale 
is the word— the veritable “wine of barley’} 
described of old by Aristotle, Theophrastus; 
Herodotus et al, and perpetuated to this day) 
under the musical names of London porter! 
German lager, and various other names 
which will be readily recalled by those ac- 
quainted with the mundane article. Let thel 
fact be what comfort it may tp those who 
love i‘ net wisely but too well that it is thel 
delight of such a numerous and brilliant c»j 
lestial company. 

BOILED PORK AND BEER. 

Another shock which truth compels me tc 
infli ct tender literary nerves, turning Uuj 
ruminator into the ruminant, so to speak, M 
thestatemontthat the meat of tho Valballlans 
is pork I Think of it— boiled pork washed 
down with beer I Farts are stubborn thing* 
—what shall the poet do with this one! New 
tar and ambrosia ore so much better because,' 
perhaps, you do uot know what they are! 
One writer of repute makes the pork and 
beer much easier to swallow by explaining 
that the wore.-i from which they are derived 
signify “air, fire and water” (which may be 
freely tranBlutod air and firowater if you de- 
sire), with “nothing earthly in them. "and 
transformed by' Asgordlin alchemy intd 
“the purest aud most delicate biyath of the 
air”— less uutrious, no doubt, than the pork 
and beer, but then more poetic, too, and we 
are grateful. | 

T..j boor, Ssehrimuer, whose flesh is food 
for the heroes, has, like each of his devourees/ 
the happy propensity to put himself together! 
again os fast as he is cut to pieces, so that m 
the close of the battle every day they 
him ou the table ready for business. 

Valhalla, delightful though you petvei^J . 
to bo, is not, however, the ultimate par® ;- 
of tbe brave: for we are told that the allH: 
of tbe Asa* shall not endure forever, but tS 
at tho south there is a dwelling place deoH^ 
Gimle, which at the twilight of the gods H 
final upheaval of all things) shall escape 
fire, though almost all of even the Asas slH 
perish.

A Field White with Skulls In Sight ol 

the City of Lima — Buried Three Hun- 
dred and Sixty-five Tears— Copper Tem- 
pered to the Hardness of Steel. 

“Having seen specimens of Peruvian an- 
tiquities in the Louvre of Paris and the Brit- 
ish museum, of London,” says Mr. Kiefer, 
“my impressions obtained then were fully 
awakened when 1 engaged to take service 
with the Peruvian government during the 
war with Chile. My first venture into the 
burying grounds of the Incas was accidental 
After onr arrival in Lima we presented our- 
selves to Don Nicholas de Pierola, who was 
then supreme chief, and a few days later we 
were requested to give an exhibition of our 
torpedo practice in the open sea, near a town 
twenty-seven miles from T , 1 m* named An - 
con. A pleasant engine, called the Favorita, 
belonging to the Oroya railroad, was plaoed 
at onr service. Pierola and a few aides-de- 
camp, myself included, made up the party. 
We reached Ancon without adventure, ex- 
hibited our apparatus with satisfaction and 
success, and started in return to Lima. 

AMONG THE MTT VMTTB 

"I took a stroll around the pampa on the 
aide of the track, and was startled by finding 
a human skull I climbed over the bank to 
the north of the track and beheld a wonder- 
fnl sight As far as the eye could reach north- 
ward the ground was almost white with 
skulls. 

‘ ‘I found bones mingled with pieces of cloth, 
pottery, wickerwork, netting, weed rope and 
wood. The ground bore evidence of immense 
excavations. We picked up a few relics in 
the 1 shape of mummified hands and arms and 
the mummy of a child. After the entrance 
of the Chilians into Lima the war was con- 
sidered at an end, and I took advantage of 
the occasion to run down to Ancon for a more 
thorough investigation of the ground. As 
there is nothing on the surface to indicate the 
presence of a grave, it was with a shovel and 
an improvised steel rod that I began prospect- 
ing. I found that the nature of the graves 
varied in different localities. In some places 
under the loose sand I would come to a hard 
stratum of earth, through which my shovel 
would break, and then on using the rod it 
would go down to a depth of four or five feet 
or more, marking tbe spot as a grave In 
ether places I could sound a grave from the 
surface, as there was nothing between me and 
its occupant but sand. At another place the 
rod would strike against some reed or wood, 
thus indicating a roofed grave, in which the 
occupants are revealed surrounded with all 
their worldly goods. 

DANGEROUS DIGGING. 

“It was only by liberal pay and perquisites 
that I induced the natives to work. The 
digging of graves there is certainly the 
hardest work imaginable, besides being a dan- 
ger to health and a risk of life. The graves 
cave in, and when tbe wind blows tbe sand is 
choking and blinding and produces a peculiar 
coughing disease. All the Inca burying 
grounds west of the Cordillera are of arid 
soil, while those of Ancon are of clear sand, 
which when stirred two or three feet below 
tbe surface, rises and floats like smoke in the 
air. The sandy graves sometimes go down 
to the depth of fifteen feet. Occasionally 
you will find a^atoeoompletely liafd an*|

Off tbe Lofoden Islands. 

The finest scenery which burst upon us as 
we proceeded northward was as wo neared 
the Lofoden Isles and passed along the line of 
their strangely serrated mountains; fine as 
needles, their hundreds of points pisree the 
blue sky, and the glaciers on their sides, catch- 
ing the sunlight at different points, glitter so 
that the eye can scarcely bear to rest upon 
them. The islands are particularly remark- 
able for abounding in eider ducks, who make 
their nests among the rocks of the gatherings 
from marine plants, lined with exquisitely 
soft down, which the femalo plucks from her 
own bosom, and when she has stripped her- 
self the male comes in aid. 

This down is so elastic and firm and of such 
beautiful quality that tbe same quantity 
which can be compressed between the two 
hands will serve to stuff a whole quilt, and 
has more warmth than the finest blanket 
Sometimes these strange birds repair to the 
mainland and build their nests under the very 
doors of the farm houses and fishermen’s huts, 
much to the delight of tho inmates, who look 
upon them as harbingers of good. A dey 
after passing the arctic circle, and while 
sitting quietly at breakfast one fine morning, 
tbe captain sent for us in hot haste to come 
on deck, when, to our great excitement, we 
saw a stream of water, betokening presence 
of a whale, spouting up into the air, and in 
another moment the huge form showed itself 
above the surface of tho water. As we sailed 
along porpoises, too, would appear snorting 
and puffing as they raised their beads, aud 
sometimes soft, doglike t yes and almost hu- 
man faces would peep up through the water, 
and a seal, with a sea trout in his mouth, 
would toss his head out of a wave.— Temple

ropes or hide and wrapped hi suet artlcfeTof 
512% M the individual possessed in life. 
Above the body would be a layer of weeds 
covered with llama’s hides and made secure 
by rope netting. I found an average of three 
pieces of pottery to every mummy, consisting 
of a cooking pot, containing remnants* of 
cooked food; a chica jug and a water croft 
I also found earthenware in tbe shape of 
whistles, bowls, cups and idols. 

“No matter how deep the grave the occu- 
pant is no richer in relics than the occupant 
of the average six foot grave. Sometimes I 
found a mummy only two feet below the sur- 
face, but these seldom possessed more than 
their ordinary wrappings. Sometimes, again, 
mummies were found with their legs tied 
backward from the knee joint The object 
of bundling the bodies into such small space 
was undoubtedly to save space, as the Incas 
utilized every available inch of ground for 
agricultural pursuits. Another theory pre- 
vails that the bodies were carried first to a 
rarefied air on tbe heights of the Andes and 
preserved, after which they were again 
brought to tho coast for burial, the packages 
being necessarily small for the journey on 
tbe backs of llamas, those animals then being 
the only beasts of burden in Peru. Articles 
of gold and silver are frequently found in 
the graves and mounds along the coast, but 
generally so oxidized as to have lost their 
shape. I found some well preserved speci- 
mens of necklaces, hair bands, bracelets, ear- 
rings, finger rings, breast ornaments, ear 
picks, tweezers, cups and idols. These vers 
of gold. I also found many vessels of silver. 
Gold and silver were much used, and the 
metals were beat out so thin and the edges 
joined so closely together that they baffled 
the naked eye to detect tbe workmanship. 
Silver idols of gigantic mold aud small ob- 
jects of heavy gold were found but rarely. 

LOST ARTS. 

“Copper was most extensively used in orna- 
menting the person and for household uten- 
sils, but its principal use was for battle axus, 
idols and tools. I found a copper chisel iu a 
mound near Cullao which proved to be te,i  
pered to the hardness of steel. It was tested 
on a railroad rail of iron and could have cut 
it in two. The tempering of copper U a lot; 
art, however, and was known to tho Incas 

uly. Humboldt analyzed one of these 
chisels and found it to oontain W per cent 
copper and 0 per cent, silica. Despite the 
discovery of these component parts all ex- 
periments have failed to reproduce a similar 
I hardness. It l  strange that tho Inca9 knew 
nothing of iron, as it abounds all over Peru. 
Glass was likewise unknown to them. They 
used quartz crystal in surgery, as the tre- 
phined skulls 1 have found showed traces oi 
thut materiaL They maile looking glasses 
by polishing stone containing pyrites of iron. 
Lead was used Cor sinkers on their fish nets 
and for personal adornment. Their cloths, 
made of vicuna wool (an animal of the llama 
family running wild and hunted), is exquis- 
itely line and oi a yellow color. Their prints 
represented animals and everything pertain- 
ing to nature. In the graves I found also the 
mummies of chJdren, birds, wttuels, rats, 
llamas and the dog original with tho Inca*. 
Thu children and animals boro evidence of 
having been burieirtUive." 

Mr. Kieter told me he had dug up 2,000 
graves and handled 5,000 skulls. Everything 
he found had been buried at least three hun- 
dred aud sixty-five years, but exactly how 
long no one could tell— New York Herald. 



It iB worthy of note that while churobea 
generally suffer most in a path of a oy- 
elone, the church edifices in Johnstown 
appear to have suffered less from the flood 
than other buildings. Their misfortune 
in tbe one case and their immunity in tbe 
other are probably due to the same cause — 
their large auditoriums and few partitions 
allowing the concentration of a large vol- 
ume of the oyolonio winds, and at tbe 
same time allowing the freer passage of a 
torrent of water.

Uncle Sam a Patron S.iint. 

A Minneapolis lady who was for a few day* 
with the V est-De Loitti-c party on the con- 
tinent tells an amusing story of her visit to 
Munich. She says; 

“I, like other tourists, was notified to ap- 
pear before the officials to state my business 
In the city, how long I intended to remain, 
•uid many other, as I thought, impertinent 
questions. When I told them that my given 
lamo was Donizetti they stormed aud took 
an dreadfully. They would not believe ihet 
2 iy father had named his daughter after the 
celebrated Italian musician. 

The uext question which astonished me 
was, ‘Who is your patron sainti’ 

“ ‘We are not accustomed to having pa- 
tron saints in America,’ said I, which state- 
ment I i-ould not persuade them to believe. 
Their persistency was so annoying that I con- 
cluded to uaveapuU’ou *amt for the occasion, 
so 1 finally said: 

“ ‘My patron saint is Uncle Sam.’ 

“This was quite satisfactory, and it was 
solemnly recorded opposite my uame. 

“A few days afterward some one well 
versed in American affairs was looking over 
these records, and he laughed so immoderate- 
ly at my patron saint that it upset the offi- 
cials, who demanded on explanation, which 
was finally given. 

-My most singular saint and my peculiar 
uarno were too much for the Germans, who 
sent for me and ordered me out of tbe city.”

Danger in Water. 

It Is generally conceded by the medical 
profession that polluted drinking water pro- 
duces more typhoid fever -than any other 
cause, yet tbero is scarcely any ono thing 
about which peoplo are more careless and In- 
different. The pollutlou commonly comes 
from the drainage of barnyards, privies, Fink 
drains, stagnant, pools and the like into wells. 
The water fr-'m these nuisances being filtered 
through tbe soil, the pollution is seldom de- 
tected by the sight, taste or smell. The board 
of health of one of the eastern states, in a 
late annual report, gives on account of a well 
of water containing 40.2 grains of solids per 
gallon, yet the pollution could not be recog- 
nized by the senses, and several persons lost 
tholr lives by its use before the cause was die- 
covered.— Chicago Sanitary News.

ACTED BY THE LADIES. 



Wives of the Orient Hold . the Purses tuid 
Manage Their Husbands — Burmese Belles 
and Their Big Cigars — Equal in All Things 
Save Religion. 

The women of Burmah are tho most ad- 
vanced women of the east. The Japanese 
wife is addressed as slave by her husband, 
and she never appears to help him entertain 
his guests. The Coreon madam has no right to 
go on the streets except after dark, and the 
small footed Chinese girl is the slave of her 
mother-in-law. She has no rights that her hus- 
band is bound to respect, and he cau sell her 
when he is tired of her. 



At weddings in “the Forties” each bride* 
maid had a groomsman to look after herflnf 
see that she had what she liked at the elabo- 
rate breakfasts of the matrimonial functMf 
of that day. Now there is only a “best man,!’ 
though how he comes by the superlative aft* 
jective when be is sole groomsman it is dsB* 
cult to say. 

Among other changes of custom is that 
concerned with the bridesmaids’ drduesy 
which used to be given by the bride. J JfiJ 
our authoress might have added that it £n«t 
longer fashionable, as it then was, fonJJsf 
bride to cry. All weddings nowaday* 
dry eyed. Crying has “gone out.” It 
the very height of the fashion in the 
1827. When Sir Edward Bulwer LyttOtt 
married Mlss Rosina Wheeler, an eye witOSM 
of the ceremony describes both bride an f 
bridegroom as being “overcome with sen- 
sibility,” pale, tottering and tearful. Not 
one totters to the altar now. It wouldgxo# 
be “good form.” But the bride must no Watt 
the other hand, romp up the aisle in the fjfr" 
ultatiou of her heart. The correct pac oiil* 
perhaps, best described as resembling thafinC 
a policeman ou his beat. It is slow nod 1 
stately. 

Another marked change in social customs’ 
is mentioned iu connection with the etiquette! 
of “small and early" parties. No longer do(jl 
a hostess ask her guests to sing or pluy. Thid 
ordeal, so dreaded by the girl of a couple CB 
decades ago, is no longer to be feared. Iw 
i hope you have brought some music, Ada 
Smith." was frequently tho prelude to a 
' tractmg performance that gave pleasure to 
no oue, least of all to the player. And, 
strange to say, now that music is always pro- 
fessional, ami generally worth listening’ tp, 
it is difficult to persuade people to nenJia 
silent while it is going on; whereas when ama- 
teurs were singing it would have been coflr

The Siamese girl 
though a step higher in tho order of human 
rights, has to support the family, and she is, 
according to the law, the property of the 
king. The Malay woman is secluded in the 
harem of her husband, and the millions of 
women of India, Egypt and Turkey are never 
seen upon the streets. The Burmese girls are 
the brightest characters of the country, and 
their gay silks, bright eyes and graceful figures 
fill every place with color and beauty. They 
mix with tho men and they have equal rights 
in property and social standing with their 
husbands. 

THE BUSINESS WOMAN. 

During the first years of the marriage tho 
man must live with and help support his mo- 
ther-in-law, and he is by no means the master 
df the hoqse. The woman holds the purse. 
She is the business man of the family, and 
though at times it is said that wife beating 
takes place in Burmah. such instances are 
few and far between. I hoard of one today 
in which a man, enraged by a shrewish wife, 
attempted to strike her. A crowd gathered 
around aud she taunted him, saying: “Beat 
me! beat me!” The man raised his stick and 
brought it down again and again within an 
inch of the woman’s back, but did not daro 
to strike her. 

The business of Burmah is managed by the 
women as much as is the business of France. 
The city of Rangoon has about 140,000 peo- 
ple, and it is the center of trade of Lower 
Burmah. Much of the native business is 
done in immense bazars covering many 
acres. These bazars are roofed with heavy 
wood or iron to keep out the sun, aud some of 
them cover several blocks. Their interiors 
are divided up into streets, which cut one 
another at right angles. 

These streets are walled with cases of goods 
of all kinds, which rise from the back of a 
ledge five feet wide and as high as a chair 
seat. Upon these ledges the bazar’s sellers 
sit with their goods piled around and behind 
them, and in these bazars the Burmese 
women compete with merchants from all 
over the east. They are as sharp at a bar- 
gain as the Parsec merchants and the tur- 
baned Mahometans who have stalls adjacent 
to them, and the Burmese manufactures 
of all kinds aro sold by them. Without edu- 
cation in arithmetic and without knowing

THEORIGINOFTHE VINE 



BY EDITH MCOUIOAN. 

The fiery rays of the noon-day's sun 
Were shed on a s’ene of woe, 

And brightly they shone on the silver 
wave 

Nor recked for the dead below. 

They seemed to be mocking the empty 
world, 

As with light and joyful ray 
They tried to pieroe through the fig tree's 
shade, 

Where our father Noah lay. 

Little he knew what was passing aronad; 

Little he oared for tehir mirth, 

TIU ronsed from his revery he beheld 
An angel dececd upon earth. 

Then straight to our father the ang-l 
went, 

And in aooents low he said: 

“Why sorrowing thus ? rejoice, rejoice, 
That you were saved from thedt^l^' , 
“What matters to me that Iw^flMBHM 
Onr father made reply, 

“What matters to rue that JtjM !. ;/ •

Hoar you not the rippling waters, • J f 
O’er which the light breeze sighs? Afl 
Yet you say with thirst yon perish 4^ 
Drink and live, I say arise.” 

“Oh augel bright,” our Father said 
How can I drink of the tide, 

In which so many s rove for life, 

In which so many died? 

Loathing I shrink, when to my lips 
The chrystal draught I hold, 

It is the life blood of the young, 

The middle-aged, the old. 

Thun the angel spread his silvery wings, 
And raised himself on high, 

Oar father followed long his flight 
With weary aohing eye, 

Until among the fleecy clouds 
He was no longer seen. 

And for a time, from mortal eye 
Had vanished all his eheen, 

But, anon the watoher’s weary heart 
Was brightened for a time 
For the angel kind had re-appeared 
With outtings of the vine. 

“Noah approaoh” ’he angel cried, 

With thirst you shall not die, 

Behold! behold! the fruitful vine 
Whioh gods drink of on high, 

I’ll show you how to plant the shoot, 

To tend the yonthfol vine 
The fruit I’ll teach you how to care, 

And how to press the wine.” 

So from that time wine always has 
The heart of man made glad, 

And if ’tis used and not abased 
T’will never make ns sad.

dred voioes- Tbe little singers in each 
of their five choruses did credit to the 
fine training of Mr. Croxton, who has had 
bat a short time iu whioh to accomplish 
so gratifying a resnlt. Misa Lena Hoeing 
played the accompaniments in her usual 
beautiful manner. As too mnch time 
would have been occupied had each of tbe 
thirty-six graduates read an essay, only 
fifteen were pat ou duty. Miss Inez 
Graves come first with a thoughtful and 
praotieal pap r ou “Never too Old to 
Learn.” Miss Lonise Davis, whose 
name came next, was absent, to 
the disappointment of her many 
friends being kept away by the death of a 
relative. Miss Graves was followed by 
Miss Blanohe Moore, who read a well- 
written essay, entitled “The Path of Life.” 
The beautifol chorns “Listen to the Old 
Church Bell,” was followed by "SucoeBS or 
Failure’’ by Mr. Frank Smith, the first 
word of the title of whose essay well ex- 
presses his first appearanoe on the ros- 
trum. Mr. Smitn’s popularity must be 
something phenomenal, jadging by the 
namber of tributes of appreciation he re- 
ceived. Among them was a hnge hunch 
of banauas, whose passage across the 
stage between two bearers was accom- 
panied by loud applause. Aseoondpaper 
on “Success” was read by Mr. Calvert 
Roszell, who handled the subject exceed- 
ingly well, but in so different a manner 
trom his predecessor that it was made all 
the more interesting by having been pre- 
viously presented in other lightB. 

Miss Ellen aaunders in “My Ideals” was 
bright, sensible and taking. Tbe audience 
listened with peouliar interest to the de- 
scription of the ideal man of so charming 
a little maid. 

"The End Not Yet,” by Miss Susie El- 
der, showed a cultivation and beauty of 
expression that was mnch commented on. 

“Auld Lang Syne” was exquisitely ren- 
dered by the noble three hundred. 

Mr. John Cozine foroibly presented the 
kind of “Men Wanted.” 

Miss Katherine Ford’s “Sunset” was 
full of thought and well-read.

orowd about the doors not being able to

Miss Emmie Grffing’s “Good-bye,” in 
the nature of a valedictory, was rendered 
peonliary agreeable by her good and dis- 
tinct enunciation- 

Miss Katie Joohnm’s thoughtful essay 
on “Time” was only one of many things 
in her sohool career for whioh she de- 
serves high oommendation. Her stand- 
ing in every respeot in her olasses has 
been for years almost above orltioism. 

Mr, Lawrenoe Fitzhngh’s true story of 
“The Meeting on Eagle Creek,” was of a

tended to business. Pulling down oue pieJW 
of bright silk after another, she spread them 
out on the mat before me and chatted and 
laughed while she sold. Girls mature here at 
13 and 14, and this bazar daisy was perhaps 
16 years old. She was as straight os a post 
and as plump as a partridge, and her rich 
Burmese dress was well fitted to show out her 
beauties. 

DRESS AND RELIGION. 

The Burmese woman are clad in two gar- 
ments. One of these is a jacket of silk or 
cotton which reaches to the hips, and tho 
other is tho tamelrn. This is a wide strip of 
bright silk about five feet square, which is 
wrapped around tho waist and the limbs and 
fastened with a twist at the front. It has the 
effect of a tight American pull-back without 
tho bustle, put on without underskirts. The 
opening of the skirt is at the front, but the 
women walk with a throwing out of tho baro 
heels, which prevents tho folds opening to an 
immodest degree. The wealthier ladies wear 
their drosses so long that they trail upon the 
gyound. The colofs ore those of the rainbow, 
and the most delicate of yellows, of pinks and 
of blues are used. 

Burmese women aro treated well in the 
family, aud they are the equals of the men 
in family affairs. They have their say in all 
business matters, and the only place in which 
their inferiority is noticeable is iu religion. 
The Burmese are Buddhists, aud a Buddhist 
woman has no chance to go to heaven save 
by her soul at death passing into the body of 
a man. If she is wonderfully pious during 
this life such a transmigration may take 
place, and I note that tbe chief worshipers at 
the pagodas here are women. Buddhist 
teachers put women much lower in the scale 
of morality than man, aud they maintain 
that tbe sins of one woman ore equal to tbe 
sins of 3,000 of the worst men that ever lived. 
There ore about two hundred million Budd- 
hist women in tho world, and none of them 
have any other hope of immortality than this. 

Living as they do, the Burmese cannot 
have much of home life. The houses of the 
great majority are more like tents than any- 
thing else. They are made of plaited bamboo 
walls thatchod with palm leaves, which ore 
pinned to rafters of bamboo the size of fish- 
ing poles. The most of the houses are of one 
story, aud this is built upon piles so high 
above tbe ground that you can walk under 
the floor without stooping. Under the house 
the live stock of the family is kept, and there 
is sometimes a work room inside this lower 
foundation. The house has no furniture in 
an Am erican sense

rule. Now, it is worth noticing that that 
ha vo known the use of tea much longer ; thafe' 
they drink a purer and stronger beveraga,, 
and that they indulge in it oftener than, 
English women. Tho children take after til* 
mothers, and in the men the characteristic^ 
become more pronounced and mora brutu. 
Scratch Russian "nervousness” aud you wul 
find a good deal of Tartar brutality under- 
neath it. 

Here. then, are four well marked stages. 
First, the healthy stage — the condition of 
England before the introduction of tea, when 
nervous diseases were unknown, tier v ®s at- 
tacks very rare, and the possession of “nerves” 
a ground for practical joking, rather than a 
claim for sympathy. Secondly, there is the 
period of the gradual growth of the consurpp- 
tion of tea, and the simultaneous development 
of nervous disorders and diseases, accomf-uqied 
by certain pronounced mental and psycho- 
logical characteristics. Thirdly, the stpta df 
society existing at present in Russia, which u 
practically a period of further development. 
Here we find that an historically longer Ac- 
quaintance with toa as a beverage is accom- 
panied by a greater subjection to nerves and 
a more marked development of tlie mental 
characteristics noted above. 

The final stage is the present condition o t 
China, where tho consumption of tea d&^e* 
back to time immemorial, where the people 
appear to be free from nervous systems en- 
tirely, aud where tho characteristics super- 
induced by tea poisoning have suffered a 
more decided developmont, and appear in 
their barest aud roughest form, without any 
of the veneer with which they are faintly 
clothed in the English or Russian femifie 
nervouse. If it were possible to imagine that 
in time the nervous system in England and 
Russia should by over excitement grow cal- 
lous and unresponsive, tho series would t^in 
be complete in those countries also; the final 
stage of tho nervous malady would Ije it» 
own defeasance through excess of irritatibn, 
the final development of the inconsidefp.t«

sounds, who has taken up. his Abode for 
many years amid these surroundings of soli- 
tary grandeur, far from any inhabited por- 
tion of the country, in a part of New Zea- 
land still inaccessible except fronf tho coast 
Here he llyes alone with nature in all her 
pristine splendor, receiving news only from 
an occasional passing ship, unless, perchance, 
another pioneering spirit’ come across him in 
his wanderings in this picturesque region of 
magnificent solitude. 

A small party of gentlemen of scientific 
tastes started on an expedition, not free from 
danger, with the object of reaching and, if 
possible, measuring and fixing the [ oeition of 
the Sutherland waterfall, so called after its 
discoverer, who up to then was the only hu- 
man being known to have accomplished the 
feat. The first step on their journey, Milford 
sound, was reached, and here were landed all 
the necessafy swags (the colonial term for a 
knapsack) and provisions, together with ma- 
terial for a canvas boat for use inland in 
crossing Lake Ada. The following account 
of their adventure is taken from notes by ono 
of [the party, Mr. Mackenzie, M. EL R., and 
published in The Otago Daily Times: 

In passing, we must mention that the gran- 
deur of this sport can hardly be. realized by 
those who ore not acquainted with the New 
Zealand bays. Lovely as is the peculiar 
beauty of the Swiss Alps, and reminded, as 
one constantly, is in this country, of the un- 
speakable ebaxin of its picturesque valleys, 
and snow laden mountains, yet there is an 
immeasurably awe inspiring grandeur in this 
unknown region, whero the footfall of man is 
unheard, and the only sounds are the songs 
of strange pnd beautiful birds, and the rip- 
pling or,roar of waterfalls andcofrses.

tnciit from Master and Mlstren*— A Hide 

Pp the River In a Cypress Canoe. 

While delving into the volumes pf the Astor 
library, the travels in this coudtry by Sir 
Charles LvelL the eminent English geologist, 
who visited here in the interest of his favored 
pursuit and was amply rewarded, Was exam- 
ined, and in it was found a description of a 
typical southern home, on a plantation, in 
which he does justice to the period now pass- 
ed into history. The upheaval in the south 
has obliterated many of the evidences of the 
prevailing, it not universal, refinement and 
culture which made many of the homes of 
those ante-bellum days the rivals of the coun- 
try houses of England. 

Sir Charles Lyell in his second visit de- 
scribes one of those plantations in Georgia in 
1847. He had arrived at Darien, Ga., and 
was there met by Mr. James Hamilton Cou- 
per, with whom he had corresponded on geo- 
logical matters and whom he bad already 
mentioned in his previous work as the donor 
of a splendid collection of fossil remains to 
the museum at Washington and of other like 
treasures to that of Philadelphia. 

A CANOE OF CTPRESS. 

He says: “Mr. Couper comedown the river 
to meet us In a large canoe, hollowed out of a 
trunk of a single cypress, rowed by six ne- 
groes, who were singing loudly and keeping 
time to the stroke of their oars. We then be- 
gan to ascend the Altamaha. For many a 
mile we saw no habitation— the solitude was 
profound, but our black oarsmen made the 
woods echo to their song. Fifteen miles above 
Darien we came to Hopeton, the residence of 
Mr. Hamilton Couper, having first passed 
from the river into a canal which traversed 
the low rice fields. 

“•Much has been laid in praise of the hospi- 
tality of the southern planter, but they alone 
who have traveled In the southern states can 
appreciate the perfect ease and politeness 
with which a stranger is made to feel himself 
at hqme. Horses, carriages, boats, servants, 
ail ore at his disposal. Even his little com- 
forts are thought of, and everything is done 
as heartily and naturally as if no obligation 
was conferred. These sacrifices made by the 
planter are comparatively small, since his 
habitual style of living is so free and liberal 
that the expense of a few additional inmates 
In the family is scarcely felt. Still, there is

read, xr you can put the thoughts into 
words and speak them aloud, two things are 
bound to result: Improvement of mind and 
Improvement of memory. Pleasure thus be- 
comes intellectually profitable. This sbonld 
ever be adopted in reading poetry, for the 
word painting here is so beautifully varied 
that ofttimes the meaning must be searched 
for seriously, ofttimes the style itself renders 
the exquisite thought obscure. The practice 
of memorizing passages of poetry will stxm 
become mere pliiy, if reading, good reading, 
is always done in this way. Wo cannot train 
the body to our will unless wo give it exer- 
cise; nor can wo expect different results in 
mind or memory. 

The power of concentrated attention, it is 
claimed, is more apparent in man than in wo- 
man, and it cannot be denied that this is the 
case. But the average man trains his mind 
to this end by hourly practice; the average 
woman, perhaps once a month, attempts -to 
concentrate her thoughts on one subject. 

. If In these days of culture we could all 
learn the definition of reading and know ex- 
actly what the phrase means when the word 
“reading” is qualified by tbe adverb “well," 
it would be of untold worth to us. A good 
memory is such a help to self confidence, a 
good understanding to self improvement; a 
good mind, well cultivated, such a treasure. 
An individual possessing all three is a delight 
unto himself and tothe world.— Chicago Her- 
ald.

Nerve. 

A restaurant man of Lincoln was looking 
gloomy yesterday as he gazed from the win- 
dow at the dusty landscape. Being sur- 
rounded by a representative of the lever 
which moves the world he commenced te 
unbosom himself. “There came In here this 
morning,” he said, “a stranger of distin- 
guished appearance. He was haughty in his 
bearing; yes, very haughty. The days of the 
years of my journey in the land taava been 
many, but 1 don’t think I ever struck amors 
commanding looking man. He took a s^P 
at a table and glanced over tbe bill of fare 
vary critically f Finally he ordered a porter- 
house steak; with innumerable vegetables. 
He asked me if 1 had any new cucumbers. I 
hadn’t any. 

“ ‘Well,’ said this haughty gentleman, ‘send 
out and get some. And tell your infernal 
waiter that I don’t waut to become a centena- 
rian before the meal is brought me.’ 

“I was deeply impressed by his Imperious 
manner and I rustled around and hurried the 
cook, and in a very short time the meal was 
placed before him, and it was a nice one. He 
seemed to enjoy it. He ate slowly, sipped 
three cups of coffee and repeated several of 
his vegetable orders Finally he concluded 
the repast, and came to the cashier’s desk 
where I wa3 on duty. He picked his teeth 
calmly and then said: 

“ ‘I am ready.’ 

“ ‘Ready for what?’ I inquired. 

“ ‘Ready to be fired. I haven’t a red cent.’ 

“Now how was that for unlaundered, 
double and twist, fast dyed gall? How does 
It strike you as a sample of nerve, with a 
wire edge and brass tip? I was too paralyzed 
to fire him. I just invited him to go and 
told him that if he ever came to my fashion- 
able rendezvous again I would sweeten his 
coffee with sulphuric acid. He smiled bland- 
ly and went his tortuous way.” And the

DESCftfl’tKjri OF THE LAKE. 

The lake is abqqt four and a half miles 
long by a mile to 4 mile and a half wide. On 
either hand huge mountains rise almost per- 
pendicularly from the water’s edge, covered 
with snow and ice, and waterfalls come tum- 
bling down on all sides. On the right, Ter- 
ror's Peaks and Giant’s Gates (7,000 feet) 
are the most remarkable feature. Ducks of 
every variety skim upon the surface of the 
lake, such os paradise, blue mountain, gray 
and teal. These abound and pay little heed 
to str^igers. Several gigantic mountains— 
among tljem the Castle, the Danger, Mount 
Hall and Mount Daniel— surround us, rising 
from, six to seven thousand feet high, and we 
saw some fine avalanches coming down the 
Barron slopes with a thundering roar. Sev- 
eral rivers fall into the head of the lake. We 
selected the center one, which turned out to 
be the Poseidon, and after rowing about two 
miles up, nigbt coming on, we camped. 

“I must leave to some able writer," Mr. 
Mackenzie says, “the work of picturing to 
the world in suitable language tbe grandeur 
of what will soon lie known as the highest 
waterfall in the world. It consists of three 
leaps in an almost direct line; but when 
standing about a quarter of a mile away, it 
has the appearance of a straight leap with 
two breaks, —

CONPmOH or. THE SLAVES. 

“During a fortnight’s stay at Hopeton . we 
had an opportunity of seeing how the plant- 
ers live in tbe south and the condition and 
prospects of tbe negro on a well managed' es- 
tate. The relatioaof tho slaves to' their own- 
ers resembles nothing in the northern spates. 
There is a hereditary regard and often at- 
tachment on both sides, more like that for- 
merly existing between lords and their re- 
tainers in the old feudal times of Europe 
than anything now found in America. The 
responsibility of the owner is felt to be great, 
and to manage a plantation with profit is no 
easy task, so much judgment is required and 
such a mixture of firmness, forbearance and 
kindness. 

“Tbe evils of the system of slavery are said 
to be exhibited in their worst light when 
new settlers come from free states; northern 
men who are full of activity, and who strive 
to make a rapid fortune, willing to risk then- 
own lives in nn unhealthy climate, and who 
cannot make allowance for the repugnance to 
continuous labor by the negro race. 

“There are 500 negroes on the Hopeton es- 
tate, a great many of whom are children and 
some old and superannuated. The latter 
class, ho would be supported in a poor- 
bouse in England, enjoy here to tbe end of 
their days the society of their neighbors and 
kinfolks and live in largo, separate houses 
assigned to them. The uegroes have a hos- 
pital assigned to them containing three wards 
—one for men, one for women and a third for 
lying-in women. The latter ore always al- 
lowej a month’s rest after their confinement, 
on advantage rarely enjoyed by the hard 
working. English peasants. 

“the negro mothers are often so ignorant 
or so indolent that they cannot be trusted to 
keep awake and administer medicine to their 
owu cliildren, so the mistress has often to sit 
up all night with a sick negro child. In snB- 
mitting to this they are actuated by mixed 
motives—a feeling of kindness and a fear of 
losing the services of a slave; but these at- 
tentious greatly attach the uegroes to their 
owners. 

“In general they refuse to take medicine 
from any other hands but those of their mas- 
ter or mistress. The day’s work consists of a 
task, which, when disposed to exert them- 
selves, they can get through in five hours, 
nnd then amuse, themselves in fishing, and 
sell the fish they take, or In making canoes 
out of the large cypress trees, and these they 
sell for their own profit. 

“Tbe most severe punishment required 
within, the last forty years tor a body of $00 
negroes at Hopeton was for the theft ot one 
negro from another. In that period there 
was no criminal act of the highest grade.— 
New York Telegram.: 



How Site Looks. 

Grace Greenwood is ono of the few women 
who look like their pictures. Anybody who 
has ever seen a counterfeit presentment of 
the high, rather pointed forehead, the promi- 
nent nose, the strong, kindly mouth, the 
friendly eyes and tho heavy black hair drawn 
down almost to cover the tips of the ears, in 
the old fashion, would recognize the rather 
short figure and matronly proportions of the 
brilliant writer whose' pen has not by any 
means lost its point and sparkle. Mrs. Lip- 
pincott has one grace rare among women or

The two upper leaps are equi- 
distant, and the lower one shorter." 

From a more detailed account we tako the 
following: “The water issues from a narrow 
defile jn the rock at the top of tho precipice; 
it then makes one grand lea p of 815 feet into 
a rocky basin on the face of the cliff; issuing 
forth.once more; it makes another fine leap 
of  51- feet; and then goes tumbling headlong 
in one wild dash of 338 feet into the pool 
right at the foot of the precipice. It wiil 
thqs be seen that the total height of the fall

mound of stones and debris projected over in 
times of flood— at the expense, however, of 
getting drenched with the spray, a Splendid

sun li shining the effect is enhanced by a 
beautiful rainbhw of colors of tho most brill- 
iant kind conceivable. This bow is nearly a 
•full circle; and the closer you get to it the 
smaller it grows, till it is right in front of 
your face— a brilliant hued ring a yard in 
diameter.” 

Many uncommon ferns and plants as well 
rare birds were met with in this solitary 
region; among the latter was a lovely bird, 
the scarlet wattlecrow, also the New Zealand 
thrush and the saddleback Kiwis, rowas 
(the wingless birds) and kakapo (tho ground 
parrot) wero fairly plentiful, we are told.—

Sympathy Properly Directed. 

The youthful heir to a Walnut Hills ances- 
tral establishment is of an inquiring turn of 
mind, and directs his attention specially to 
tbe elucidation of religious problems. Last 
Week he heard a Sunday school address on 
“The Prodigal Son." Just what the smell 
boy thought of tbe address his father- was 
curious to learn, and so he said to him that 
night at supper: “My son, tell me which of 
tbe characters In the parable of the prodigal 
son you sympathize with.” “Well, papa,” 
replied the cherub with perfect nonchalance, 
“I think I’d foal disposed to sympathize most 
w ith the calf."— Cincinnati Commercial Ga-

For the Public Weal. 

“H you wish to live to any ags at all,” 
Bid., the doctor, “you must give up those 
abominable cigarettes.” 

“But, doctor,” argued tbe patient, “If you 
are so opposed to tbe use of tobacco, why 
are you always smoking yourself 1” 

"You see, my young friend," returned the 
doctor, “I so flilly comprehend tbe great evil 
caused by tobacco that in my endeavor to 
benefit mankind I have made it my aim to 
smoke up as much of tbe vile weed as I pos- 
sibly can."— The Epoch. •
