HAVE JIADE THIS UNIQUE ANI.
Tho inulo Is tho animal Noah didn't taka
into the ark with htm. I havo looked over
tho freight-list carefully, and could not sco
ft mtilo way-hilled for nny place. So clear
headed a man ai Noah did not daro to tnko
ono on hoard, as he knew he would kick a
holo through tho craft In less than a week.
I don t know a man on whoso head you could
pour quicksilver and run lean risk of its spill
itig oft than Noah's. Ho was adreadfiil level-headed
man, and heforo tho freshet was
over everyhody on earth realized the fact.
f ho origin of tlio mule is enveloped in a
good deal ol mystery. Tradition iuforms
that when tho Hood had subsided, and thti
ark liau laueleu on Mount Ararat, Noih was
very much surprised in one of his first oh-
servations to find a good healthy mule stand
ing on an atljolnlng mountain. Tho same
tradition informs us that tho mulo it the on
ly auimal that lived through tho flood out
sido of the ark.
The mulo can ho considered In a good
many ways, though tho worst jilaco from
which to consider him is directly from he-
himl,nny where within a radius often feet. I
never consider a mulo from that point, tin
less I am looking through tho fluo of a holl
er. Sea captains and people who havo to do
with mules always pay an extra rate to life
insurance companies. A mule and a belt of
country where yellow fever is indigenous
generally stand tho samo a reganU the
The word mulo comes from the Grcek.and
signifies "tn stop." and tho mule himself
conies ton btop. Like mulhplied by like
produces like. Grasshoppers multiplied by
grashoppers produces famine, nud potato
hugs multiplied by potato bugs produce
a rie in the price of yeast, lint wneiryou
tiy to multiply mules by mules they don't
multiply, and henco tlio word mule. Y'nu
nay study your arithmetic and read through
all of Train's lectures, but you can't discov
er why this is so, any moro than you can
why a woman cannot put on a rubber with
out leaning up against something.
Tho mulo has ono more leg than a milk
ing ttool, nnd he can stand on one. and wave
tho other three around in as many dillerent
directions. He lias only threo cense.", hear
ing, seeing auu smelliug. Ho lias no moro
sense of taste than a stone jug ; and will
cat anything that contains nutriment, and
lie don't care two cents whether it be oue
per cent, or ninety-nine. All he asks is to
pass him along his plate, with whatever
happens to be handy round the pantry, and
ho won't go away and blow how poor the
steak is. Ho just eats whatever is set be
fore him, and asks no questions,
Mules are naturally deaf, but that supreme
wisdom that teaches a little boy to wipe his
iioso on his sleeve, has fitted the mule out
with a pair of ears that counteracts its deaf
ness, so he can hear as readily as a person
when you don't want him to. These ears
answer a double purpose, as tunnels to pour
sound into his head, and also as fans to brush
away tho flies with and keep his head cool.
They aro hung by hinges to the side of his
head, and flap backwards and forwards like
a pair of wet trowsers round a boy's legs. In
cold latitudes quite a tasty business is done
in mule's ears. The cars nro cutoff and
dried, and sold forsnow shoes, and the snubs
are trimmed up and tho mules are sent
South nnd sold for horses. In this way a
great many fine horses were purchased for
the army by the United States.
II I wero to havo a largo pictnre'of'inno
ceuco to hang up In my parlor, and I did
not wish to sit for myself, I should geta cor
rect liken bsh of a mule. There is innocence
enough depicted in a mulo's countenance to
fit out a Sunday-school class. It looks as
guileless as an angle-worm.
A mulo never grows old or dies. Once
brought into existence, lie continues on forr
over. Ihe original mule is now nlivo some
where in tlio South, and is named Robert
Toombs, because ho is so Btubboru.
Mules aro chiefly found in the South and
Wcsf, They have been more abused than
Judas Incariot. A boy who would not throw
a stono at a mule if he got a chanco would
be considered by Ills parents as too mean tn

when amnio strikes, human calculation fails

Down South, when they have a surplus of
small darl'eys on tho plantation, they send
them out into tho barnyard to play where

To fully appreciate tho mule one should
listen to ids voice. You uever can really
know whether you like a mule or not till you
have heard him sing. I attended a mule
concert at Fort SntUiug. The programme
opened with a soprano boIo, then swung In
to a duett, and then pranced off Into a trio,
followed up by a quartette, and ending with
a full chorus by 160 mules. I didn't hear
the wholo thing, for when I came to, tho
regimental surgeon was standing over me.

on an Episcopal church. Mstallwas trim
med down so that it looked like a tar brush
leaning up against him. Ho was striped off
like the American flag, nnd Raphael's cher
ubs never looked more angelio than did that
mule. Ho looked all innocence though ho
was in no sense. The owner sat In his wag
on with his chin resting on his hand and his
elbow resting on his knee. In tho other
hand he held a stick with the brad on the
end of it. I examined tlio mulo and asked
tho man a few questions, nnd out of mere

kicked, ''Kind? Kick?" said tho man, and
those wero tho last words he ever uttered.

of life snap so abruptly as It did on that oc

Outwitting a Tyrant.
It was in tho year ISIS that tho leading
citizens of the chief towns of tho Lombardo
Venetian kiudom avowed openly their de
testation of Austria, and they only awaited a
favorablo opportunity to throw off the yoke.
At one of tlio theatres of Venice, on a cer
tain evening, rt magnificent boquct was
thrown upon tho stago at the feet tf a beau
tiful daiiHuse. It was a raro piece of work
manship, was the boquet, nnd its three col
ors, of red, white and green, were so arrang
ed that the symbol of Italian Independence
could not bo mistaken. The danseusc picked
it up and kissed it repeatedly, and pressed it
rapturously to her bosom, while'the vast au
dlence applauded vociferously.
On the following morning the netrefs was
summoned before the police authorities, and
was sharply questioned touching her absurd
treatment of the boquet which had been
thrown to her on tho previous evening. Shi
tremblingly answered that she had onlydone
as she always did when such beautiful trib
utes were given to her.
"Very well," said tho Austrian chief;
'hereafter, when a boquet is thrown to you
(bus publicly, youw!ll trample upon it with
your foot. Do you understand ?"
She said she understood, and she was suf
fered to depart. She went to some of her
friends and told them what had happened
"Ah," said tlio artist, Antonio Luigi, "and
you will tramplo upon it ?"
"Then I will see that you havo the right
kind.. Ho brave, pretty ono, and wo will

Very recently tho District Commissioners

Its competitors at onco raised th isue that

Finally tho matter was referred to the Uni

against the Sunday paper, basing his decis

In 1723, "in tho ninth year of tho Right
Honorable Charles, Absolute Lord and Fro-

"An Act to punish blasphemers, swearers,
drunkards and Sabbath breakers," and
among its penalties aro the following :

"If any person is found guilty, wittingly,

PRESENT CONDITION OP THE EXCAVATIONS.
A correspondent of tho London Athemcm
writes from Naples ns follows:
"A recent visit to Pompeii after a long in
terval onables mo to givo you new nnd In
teresting details of that remarkable locality.
Let mo caution, however, everyono against
visiting it at midsummer, when the ther

been disinterred, nnd tho excavations aro
now being carried on by an nverage number
of 100 men, toward the cast and norlheast.

tho other parts I whs well acquainted, as aro

passed since I was present at tho first in
gcnlous experiment which was made by tho
present senator Eiorelli to recover the forms
at least of tho dead, bo that it is with no
slight interest that I regard any progress,and
considerable progress has been made in tho
modo of preservation. It often happens that
from the superincumbent weight and other
causes, tho bones havo been displaced
these aro now removed from tho debris as
far as possible, so that tho figure is not do
formed by bones protruding from wrong
places. This was first nttempted in 1873,
and has been continued over since with
great success. Perhaps the most beautiful
figure in tho collection is that of a young
girl, exquisitely formed ; she is lying ou her
face, while her hand was evidently attempt
ing to cover her eyes. The folds of her
dress, tho very texture, and her hair, hro all
sharply defined. Near her lay, and lies, a
man on his back, and by his side was, and
is, an iron rod, four feet long, with which
It is supposed ho was forcing a rod. Gloso

dais attached to ilio feet, the bones of which
are well preserved. Without lingering here
any longer, however, let us pas on to the
house in which un excavation was made in
tho spring, in honor of ourprinccsi. The
objects found there and then, of no great
value, were presented to her ltoyal High
