They didn't call him Tom, or Jack, or
Harry, but always spoke of him as "Joseph's
Brother." And it was just as singular that
they didn't say "Joe,''' instead of "Joseph"
when speaking of or to the man,
The two had a wagon in the band, drag'
ging itself towards the Black Hills, day by

Some said that Joseph was a fugitive from
justice, and that b: wouldn t fraternize with
them for fear of betraying himself when in
terrogated. Others thought he felt too proud
to mix with such society, and between the
two theories ho had nearly all the men think

at a small fire a few feet from the hind

their frugal supper. As the crowd came near
the boy sprang up and climbed into the
covered wagon, and Joseph Blowly rose up
and looked at them anxiously and inquiring'

A gentleman has just died in Paris who
owed most of his celebrity to tho quaint
manner in which he managed to disembar
rass himself of his creditors. No sooner did
a dun present himself thau ho was ushered
into a room hung round with a variety of
mirrors, some-convex, others concave, Ac.
In one the unfortunate creditor beheld him'
self with a head as flat as a flounder, in an
other his features were nearly aa sharp as a
knife, in a third ho had several heads, and
n a fourth he was upside down. Here ho
had tho broad grin of a clown, there the
long-drawn visago of an undertaker. On
one sldo of uho room he saw himself all head
and no body ; on tho other side it seemed
aa if a dwarf had put on tho boots of a giant.
No applicuut, however pressing, was known
to resist this chamber of horrors for more
than a quarter of an hour.

away down tho eastern coast of tho finger-
like peninsula, you may sco n spot
marked "Jupiter" or "Jupiter Inlet." Some
maps mako il "Juniper." This is wrong,
Its namesake was old Jupiter, the slavo of
an army officer, who was stationed at this
point during tho first Scminolo war. Jupi
ter is between latitude 20 and 27. Al
though only 120 miles north of Key West,
it bulges to the cast nearly a degree of Ion-
gitudo beyond Cape Canaveral. It Is proba
bly tho most inaccesslblo and barren nook
on tho whole Floridlan coast, and can bo
reached only in light-draught boats, sailing
the whole length of tho Indian rivtr. Sharp
coral reefs fringo itsshoro.and high hillocks
of white sand sprinkled with thick clumps
of scrub and cactus, rear their heads above
the inlet. The lively sand-crab catches
fireflies on tho beach, and huge turtles de
posit their eggs in tho sand. This attracts
scores of bears from tho swamps and ham
mocks bordering tho everglades; for to
them tho turtle and its eggs are a toothsome
delicacy. Spotted tiger-cats play amng
tho sand-hills by moonlight, and the fierce
puma prowls along the shore in quest of
king crabs or more substantial diet. The
largest puma ever seen in the State was shot
in this region by the keeper of tho light
house. It was ns formidable as a roval Ben-
gal tiger, and measured over thirteen feet
from snout to tip.
Tho shallow salt water swarms with fish,
Schools of mullet and pompino flash in the
sunlight, and cavallo, lionefish, bluefish, red
bass, drum, snappers nnd groupers aro hero
in myriads. Jcwfish have been caught
weighing over COO pounds. Sawfish the size
of young whales surge through the narrow
cnanneis, ana ravenous sharks trom 12 to lil)
feet in length keep a rigid blockade outside
As tho title rises they come within the inlet
in search of prey. The bass and other fish
that have been feeding upon the mullet be-
como in turn the victims of the shark. The
smaller fish dart to and fro, making the
water boil in their efforts tn escape. Mil-
lions aro slowly but surely driven into a
small bay by the sharks, who whip tho
waves into foam in theirhungry fury. Pen
ned at last, the doomed fish leap into tho air
with terror, and shoals of them run ashore,
Tho sharks charge with a rush. Tlieir
jaws snap like pistol shots, and mutilated
fish aro scattered over the water. Schools
of porpoises join in the slaughter, and oc
casionally an old alligator shoves oft" from
the shore, sinks himself like a submarine
battery, and steals a bounteous meal.
Nor is an alligator the only free-feeder.
Tho air is filled with thousands of lilac-
feathered terns and gulls. Full well do they
understand tho situation. The rush of their
wings is liko a breeze in the forest of pines,
and their screams are deafening. By pla
toons they dash into the agitated water, and
soar off above the roaring surf, each with a
fish in its bill. The very air sparkles with
fish, for the gulls toss their victims up until
they catch them by the head. Then they
aro easily bolted. High abovo the tern
float flocks nf grey pelicans, larger than
geese, and grnvo and formal as judges. The
wind whistles beneath I heir great wings, but
they make no audible expression of satisfac
tlon. Dropping into the waves with a great
splash, after a few lubberly manoeuvres they
fill their pouches, and sail away as though
the whole affair was arranged for their own
exclusive benefit. A party of stalwart herons
pace the strand In their Austrian uniforms
and pick up tho tiny silver fish slopping
ashore during tho general commotion. And
last and least, nur little Northern kingfisher,
clad in a sky-blue suit, springs hia little rat-
tie and hangs on the outskirts of tho battle,
picking up the choicest tid-bits. Such is
an everv day scene at Jupiter during the
uumer and fall.
The inlet is very shallow. Its bed is de-1
tached coral rocks, covered with sea.green
moss. This moss hides that peculiar shell
known as "bleeding teeth." At low tide the
water rushes over these rocks, forming rapids
like those on some Canadian streams. Banks
f sand appear at tho foot ot the raplda, and
aro washed by tho breakers of the Atlantic.
Tbo tide sets in with wonderful force. The
current la very strong, and the banks and
flats inside are quickly flooded. Immense
eddies are formed, and, strange as it may
seem, these eddies offer some of the finest
fly-fishing in the world. The bone or lady
sh, bluefish, snapper, and cavallo take a
fly with the voracity of a brook trout. Gam-
cy as is the bluefish the ladyfish is his supe-
rior. The latter is very long and slender,
covered with small silvery scales. It has a
broad head, a large and expressive eye, fine
sharp teeth, and a mouth like that of a trout,
It reaches ten pounds in weight. Tho lady

When struck it is a marvel of nerve and

high tide. Tho alligators of tho Kvcrglades
got wind of what was going on. They came
down tho Allokchatchto nnd Lako Worth
creek In scores, and attacked the fish dam
med in the bight. Tho slaughter was aston
ishing. The water turned to blood and was car-
peted with dead fish. The alligators were
reinforced until their number was estimated
at five hundred. They gorged themselves
with fish, and dozed away their days on the
hot sand beneath tho scorching rays of the
sun. The beach was black with their mailed
bodies. At night their muttered thunder
fairly shook the foundations of tho light
house. Ono day a north wind arose. It gathered
in strength day by day until its fury was that
of a gale. It began to back up the waters
in tho 'inlet.. Rain fell, and the water in-
creased in depth. The wind shifted to
the northwest. A high neap tide followed.
As It began to fall, a thread of fresh water
found its way over tho 'Sandy barrier. With
in twenty minutes tho dam was burst, and
tho pent-up waters were roaring and rushing
to tho sea. Tho army of alligators was
caught In tho flood and carried outside. A
terrific fight ensued. Tho neap tide had
brought hundreds of enormous sharks to tho
coat. They scented tho fresh water and
made for the inlet. Frantic after their en
forced fasting during the storm, they attack
ed the alligators. Tho noise of tho combat
was heard above the roar of tho ocean. A
son of Judge Paine, of Fort Capron, who
was an eye-witness of the scene, tella mo
that ho saw sharks and alligators rise on the
crest of the waves nnd fight like dsgs.
Many of tho killed floated belly upward,
and were afterward rocked ashore by tho
waves. For days their bodies drifted to the
beach. Tho dead alligators had lost their
legs and tails. The sh arts In some cases
were nearly bitten into two pieces. The
current of the Gulf Stream strewed tho shore
as far north as Cape Malabar with their car
cases. Clouds of buzzards, and oven tho Ba
hama vultures were drawn to the beach by
the off.il, Mr. Paino fancies that the sharks
were too active for the alligators, but others
say that the percentage of bodies on the
beach indicated that tho weight of metal was
in favor ot tho iron clad reptiles. A.
HOW CLARA MOr.KIS WAS AnrtAYKn AS "CA'
iltLLi:" IN A BOSTON TIIEATRll.
Clara Morris appeared as Camille, in Bos
ton, recently. In tho first act she appeared
in a dress of heavy creamy silk with a long
train, the basquo of the same being cut low
in tho neck and with short sleeves. The
most striking featuro of this costume was tho
overskirt, which was formed of a very cle
gant China crepe shawl of creamy white, to
match the silk beneath, and very heavily
embroidered : it opened up the left side, but
the entire space was filled in by over lapping
rows of the deep Bilken fringe which had
been cut from the shawl's edges, limbroi
dered white silken hose and white satin
slippers completed the toilet. In her blonde
wig and at her throat wero singlewhite cam
elias, and she carried a magnificent bouquet
of tho same. Her jewelry comprised a pearl
necklace, tho Btringa of which were confined
with turquoise clasps, brilliant earrings aud
broad gold bracelets. In tho second act her
dress was equally elegant, being of heaviest
black satin, with long fan train, and the
over-dress was of rich black Spanish lac,
thrrugh tho meshes of which the satin
gleamed with wonderful effectiveness. Upon
a black velvet ribbon at her throat waa a jet
locket, set with diamonds. Solitaires of the
same brilliant stones wero in her ears, and
her feet wero encased m scarlet hoso and
sandal shoes, each strap caught by steel
buckles The third costume, worn in tho
beautiful country scene, was of simple whlto
dotted muslin, with blue ribbons at throat,
waist, sleeves and slippers, and at tho
throat was also a cluster of dark-hued pan-
sies. I he ball dress in the lourth act was
most brilliantly beautiful of all. It was of
apple green satin of a lovely shade, cut prin'
cess, around tho bottom being a deep flounce
cut in blocks at the edgo with a pleating of
white crepe lisse peeping beneath. Tho
overdress was a low necked polonaise of
magnificent white point lace, very long be.
hind and draped with long garnitures of wa
ter lilllea in all stages of bloom, from tbo
tluiest bud to the full blossom, relieved by
rich-hued pads. A garland of the blossoms
outlined the neck of the dress, and a cluster
was in the long tresses of golden hair. Her
jewelry was very valuable, consisting of a
locket of diamonds surrounding a monster
emerald ; diamond ear rings, and a glitter
ing band of diamonds worn as a shoulder
bracelet thero being no sleeves in the
dress and a butierflyof diamonda and emo-
ralda quivering in her hair. In the final
act Miss Morris wore a wrapper of fine cam-
brie simply trimmed with tucks and bands

Av Omental llscULArius. Mr. Oscan-
yan, In his book The Sultan and hit People,
tells tho following anccdoto ot a Turkish
physician, whoso prescriptions and method
of treatment will Interest practitioners In
New York :
A. person exceedingly ill of typhus fever
called in ono of theso medical gentlemen,
who, although he considered the case quite
hopeless, prescribed for his patient, and
took hia leave. The next day, In passing
by, ho inquired of a servant at tho door If
his muster was not dead. "Dead 1 No; ho
is much better." Whereupon the doctor
proceeded up stalra to obtain the solution of
this miracle. "Why," said tho convalescent
"I was consumed with thirst, and I drauk a
pailful of tho juice of pickled cabbage."
"Wonderfull" quoth tho doctor. And
out camo the tablets, on which tho physician
made this inscription, "Cured of typhus
fever, Mehemed Aghaan, upholsterer, by
drinkiug a pailful of pickled cabbago juice,"
Soon after, tho doctor was called to an
other patient, a yaghllkgce, or dealer In em
broidered handkerchiefs, suffering from tho
same malady. He forthwith prescribed "a
pailful of pickled cabbage juice."
On calling the next day to congratulate
his patient on his recovery, ho was aston
ished to bo told tho man was dead. Tho
Oriental JKsculaplus, in his bewilderment
at these phenomena, came to the Bato con
clusion, and duly noted it in his memoran
da, that "although incases of typhus fover
pickled cabbage juke is an efficient remedy,
it la not, however, to bo used unlets the pa
tient be by profession an vpltolstercr." En
rroii's Drawer, in Harncrs's Mayazinc
Somo twelve or fiteen years ago a queer
character, nicknamed "Jersey Bill," lived at
Otisville, N. Y. During the races at Goshen
or Middletown ho used to visit tho coursea
for tiio purpose of peddliug whips, which
were made of reeds, and which ho sold for
five or six cents apiece. When Bill had ac-
cumlated a little money he abandoned hia
itinerant pursuits, settled down at Hamp
ton, and became proprietor of the tavern
there. He had many acquaintances among
tho farmers in Sussex county, N. J., and
when business was slack he would take a run
across the line to visit them. Oil ono of these
occasions Bill chanced to seee a mare which
ho admired greatly, ?nd which, after some
dickering, ho purchased for $150 and
brought her back with .him to Hampton.
She stood about fifteen hands high, was a
sprightly, neat-limbed creature,and attracted
considerable attention from tho connoisseurs
iu horseflesh who frequented Bill's tavern.
Not long after ho received an offer of $750
and finally accepted it. The maro waa taken
in charge by her new owner, removed to
Newburgh, placed in the care of a careful
trainer, and In due time regularly introduced
upon the trotting turf. Her history from
that time forward was marked by a series of
triumphs. Last week she made the fast
est time on record (2:14) ever known on the
trotting course in the State of California,
The gentleman who purchased her from
Jersey Bill waa Mr. Alexander Goldsmith,
and the mare's name is Goldsmith Maid.
"Henry V."was played in Atlanta recent
ly, and one fiddler constituted the entire or
chestra. "In tho furious battle scencs,"says
the Constitution, "his bow flashed across the
strings like shining strokes of swords." Tho
climax of the lone orchestra's performance
is thus described : "Then when tho charge
rested and the King stopped for breath,, the
fiddler stood by his post. Tho wounded
groaned on the A string, begged for water
on the K catgut, and cursed their luck on
the G cord. Andante and adagio, piano
and pianissimo, all tbo confused, pathetic
and terrible scenes of tho fight were produc
ed by the orchestra with painstaking labor,
sudorific suffering and sublime skill. He
crescended on the crescendo with crescend-
ing crescendation, and diminished on the
diminuendo with diminishing diminution."

A Frenchman brought to a well-known
Parisian jeweler a diamond necklace which
ho recognized aa having been ono of hia
wifos wedding presents. The Frenchman
had with him ita counterpart in paste, and
ho proposed to Bell the genuine necklace
for $50,000 francs and let hia wife still
think she had the real diamonds. The jew
eller then asked for a few hours' time. He
then called on tbo wife's grandmother who
gavehira the 50,000 francs for tho husband.
The money and the necklace wero h,. Jed
to tho husband who believed he was receiv
ing tho paste diamonds. "That ia well ' said
tho grandmother ; "her husband will think
the diamonda aro false, and will never try
sell them again." A few months passed,
and the wife embarrassed by a huge dru
maker's bill, brought the necklace to the
