The Jumbo of Crickets,
Throughout the whole territory of
Utah the cricket is one of the common
objects of the country, but there are
crickets and crickets, and it is just a
well when in search of the best article
to "see that you get it." For a con
sideration, therefore, I will put the
speculator on the track of some of the
grossest locusts that ever devoured
green stuff—locusts, moreover, that
squeak when pursued. Poets (Ameri
can poets especially) are very partia
to what they are pleased to call the
cricket's merry chirp. But the poet's
cricket is the insect of the domestic
hearth, a pale-colored ghost of a thing
all voice, and with an irregular mid
night appetite for the kitchen cloths
that are hung out to dry before the
stove. The Piutes' cricket is very
much otherwise. It is the Jumbo of
crickets, and just as black. It lives on
the slopes of the Utah hills, among the
sage-brush, and when alarmed tries
invariably to jump down-hill. But
being all stomach, and therefore top
heavy, so to speak, the ill-balanced
insect invariably rolls head over heels
and every time it turns a somersault it
squeaks dismally. To walk down the
hill side, driving a whole herd of these
corpulent crickets before me, used to
amuse me immoderately, for the spec,
tacle of so many fat things simultane
ously trying to jump down hill, simul
taneously rolling head over heels, and
simultaneously squeaking, was mirth
ful enough to drive the dullest care
Life in San Francisco.
The people of this city, like those of
Paris, live largely at restaurants, says
a San Francisco letter. The number
and variety of eating houses are re
markable. They are on every street,
and of all grades and finish. The pro
prietor of one of the largest told me
they were furnishing from 4000 to
4500 meals per day. I know of no
American city where one can live so
cheaply so far as eating is concerned
as here. Housekeeping is more ex
pensive than in the east, as rents are
very high. But restaurant living is
reduced to the lowest possible cost.
The result is that hundreds of couples
together with much of the single ele
ment, hire rooms and then take their
meals at an eating-house. At the
"Poodle-Dog," a dining-room patron
ized by wealthy people and those who
desire to be numbered among the
"tony" ones, it is very easy to run a
dinner up to $2 or $3, but at most of
the first-class restaurants a good dinner
can be had for from two to four bits,(a
bit is five cents) according to the vari
ety of dishes desired. A lady told me
her breakfast usually cost her five

Tin* Terrible Fnte of n Brntnl Negro nt the
Hands o! n .Mob.
At tho recent term of the Calcasieu
Parish District Court a white man
named Oscar Martin was convicted of
an attempt to murder his father, whom
lie shot and wounded, and a negro
named Lewis Woods was convicted of
assaulting a negro girl. They were
both young men, not moro than twen
ty-one years of age. While awaiting
sentence they succeeded in escaping
from jail, and took to the woods. A
few days afterward Lewis Woods came
up with a Mrs. Humphries, the wife of
a well connected gentleman, in the
woods at a point near Hear Head Creek,
about thirty miles northwest of Lake
Charles, and assaulted her. Martin
does not appear to have been present
at the outrage.
Tho country was aroused, and the
fugitives, who had kept together, were
tracked and lollowcd, and finally driv
en into Texas, where a wt-t-kugo in
Jasper county, near Cairo, they were
arrested by citizens of that Mate. The
men were held until the arrival of dep
uty sheriffs from Calcasieu, who took
the prisoners and started by rail with
them for Lake Charles.
On arriving at the Kdgerly station
in Calcasieu parish, the train was
hoarded by fifty armed men, who forci
bly took the men oil the train. It was
evident that the mob intended to make
short work of the matter. They start
ed with the two prisoners lor the
woods hack of Edgerlv. Some of them
had ropes and others shotguns, but it
was reserved for the negro not to die
either by the rope or powder and shot.
He seemed to le indifferent to his
fate, and trotted along in the middle
of the mob as if he were the most un
concerned man in the party. Not so
with tho white man. lie seemed to
fear the worst, and it was often neces
sary to push him along in order for
him to keep up with his black com
When the timber was reached tho
negro was quickly lashed to a tree, and
the crowd began to pile fagots about
him. While the work was going on he
begged to exonerate his companion,
the white man, who, ho said, had no
hand in the outrage upon the woman.
"He bogged me not to do it," said
the negro, "and that is all I have to
Those words saved the life of the
white man, and he is now in the jail
at Lake Charles.
When the pile of dry brush was al
most as high as the head of the negro
the match was applied, and soon tho
flames were seething and crackling
around the doomed man. As they be
gan to scorch his tlesh his agonizing
shrieks seem to penetrate the very
heavens. It seemed to be the intention
of the crowd to prolong his sufferings
as much as possible, and some of the
crowd, which had now increased to
about 'J 00, pulled some of the fire away
from the victim. He begged them to
shoot him—anything to relieve him
from his sufferings.
The sufferings of the man did not
cease for fully twenty minutes, and
the agony that he endured in that
short space of time was more than pen
can picture.— Maryland Democrat.
Apples as Food.
From the earliest ages apples have
been in use for the table as a dessert.
The historian Pliny tells us that the cultivated twenty-two varie
ties of the apple. In these latter days
we probably possess over two thou
sand. As an article of food they rank
with the potato, and on account of the
variety of ways in which they may be
served, they are far preferable to the
taste of many persons; and if families
would only substitute ripe, luscious
apples for pies, cakes and candies, and
preserved fruit, there would be much
less sickness among the children, and
the saving of this one item alone would
purchase many barrels of apples.
They have one excellent effect upon
the whole physical system, feeding the
brain, as well as adding to the llesh,
and keeping the Mood pure; also, pre
vent ing eonstipat ion, and correcting a
tendency to acidity, which produces
rheumatism and neuralgia. They will
cool off the feverish condition of the
system ; in fact, they are far better for
these purposes than the many nostrums
which are highly praised in the adver
tisements, and are so constantly pur
chased by sufferers. A ripe, raw apple
is digested in an hour and a half, while
a boiled potato takes twice the time.
"NYhen apples can he purchased at
cheap rates, every family should keep
a dish of them in the dining-room,
where the children can have access to
and eat all they please of them. They
will rarely receive any injury from
them, if they are thoroughly mastica
ted. Baked apples should be as con
stant a dish upon the table as potatoes.
Every breakfast and tea-table should
have a dish of them. Baked sweet
apples are a very pleasant addition to
a saucer of oat-meal pudding, and when
served with sweet cream they are very
They are not so commonly used as
they should be, as they will supply as
much muscular and nervous support as
dishes o£ meat and vegetables. Thous
ands of bushels of sour apples are used
for pies and puddings in hundreds of
families where well-baked, sweet
apples will prove more nourishing
food, and much more economical.
They are also good food for old people,
and are usually greatly relished by
them. In my own family they are
always, when in season, a part of the
meals of the day, and are as commonly
used as a slice of bread.
A Partially Dead Man.
The Mo rainy Herald , Baltimore,
Md., states: Major 15. >S. White, of this
city, describes his miraculous cure as
follows: "I have been a partially dead
man for ten years. Doctors attributed
my sufferings to the enlargement of
certain glands. The quantity of Med
icine 1 took without relief would
be sufficient to set up a first-class apoth
ecary shop. Finally St. Jacobs Oil was
recommended. I had my spinal column
thoroughly rubbed with it. All those
knots, kinks and stiffness have passed
away and I .1% myself again.

Worn, Weary, and WretchecL "
"As weak as a cat" is an expression irequently used by debilitated
sufferers who are trying to tell hojv forlorn they feel. It is an incorrect ex
pression, for a cat is one of the most agile and vigorous animals in exist
ence. It would be more correct to say, "as weak as a limp old rag," for
that gives the idea of utter inability to hold one's self up. The weary per
son who feels thus is generally worn, worried, woeful, and wretched.
Sometimes it is a case of overwork, and sometimes of imperfect nour
ishment. The blood in the system of a person who is "as weak as a rag" is in
a wretchedly thin condition. It needs iron, to impart richness, redness
and strength. This is to be had by taking BROWN'S IRON BITTERS, the
only safe and proper preparation of iron in connection with gentle and
powerful tonics. The physician and the druggist can tell the worn and weary
Low'\aluable a remedy BROWN'S IRON BITTERS has been found in actual
every-day use. U _

The above is * good likeness of Mrs. I.ydla E. Plnla
liam, of Lynn, Mass., who above all other human beings
may bo truthfully called the 'Hear Friend of Woman,"

ii zealously devoted to her work, which is the outcome
c fa life-study, and Is obliged t<v keep six lady
assistants, to help her answer the large correspondence
lrlurh dally |*>urs tn upon her, each bearing its special
Isirden of suffering, or Joy at release from it. Her
Vege table Compound Is a medicine for good and no*
evil p-i-posea I have personally Investigated It and
in satisfied of the truth of this.
On account of its proven merits. It Is recommended
-nd prescribed by the best physicians In the country.
One says: "It works like a charm and saves much
fain. It will cure entirely the worst foan of falling
f the uterus Loucorrhoa, Irregular and painful
liens*.nation,all Ovarian Troubles, Inflammation and
Ulceration, Flooding*, all Disp'accments and the con
sequent epinal weakness, and is especially adapted to
the Change of Life."
It p-nn-atesevery portion of the system, and gives
new life and vigor. It removes faintness, flatulency,
destroys all craving for stimulants, and relieves weak
iiess of the stomach. It cures Bloating, Headaches,
Nervous Prostration, General Debility, Sleeplessness,
liepression and Indlgerl ion. That feeling of bearing
down, causing pain, weight and backache, Is always
permanently cured by its use. It will at all times, and
under all circumstances, act in harmony with the law
that governs the female system.
It costs only sl. per Ijottle or six for s•'>., and la sold by
druggists. Any advice required as to special cases, and
the names of many who have bqpn restored to perfect
health by the use of the Vegetable ComiKiund, can be
obtained by Mrs. P., with .tamp for reply,
at her home in Lynn, Moss.
For Kidney Complaint of either sex this compound Is
unsurpassed as abundant testimonials show,
"Mrs. Jink ham's Liver Pills," says one writer, "tjre
the beat in the trorld for the cure of Constipation,
Biliousness and Torpidity of the liver. Her Blood
Purifier works wonders in Its special line and bids fair
to equal the Compound in its popularity.
All must respect her as an Angel of Mercy whose sols
ambition is to do good to others.
