A short time since the London Tele
graph, which is always saying somn-
tlniig to get somebody into trouble, pub
lished' an article relative to the engross
ing partiality which the domestic cat
leels lor its home, its vehement yearning
return thither when circumstances
over which it 1ms no control have resul
ted in its transfer to unfamiliar localities,
mid all that sort of tiling, winding up by
giving an interesting account ot how cer-
ain eminent Dutch naturalisls had util
ized Grimalkin as a letter carrier made
sort of carrier-pigeon of tho cat in fact.
Of thirty-seven cats carried miles from
their native village and turned loose
with letters tied around their necks not
011c tailed to get back to the starting
point in time.
Well, young .Mr. 1 illmgliastt, out on
West Hill, read this article, and a ro
mantic conception occurred to him right
on the spot. While ho was burning a
limited ipiantily of old .fudge Dieflien
baugh's g.is and just ruining Miss HieiT-
eiibatiglis bangs that evening, he told
Mil - DielTenbatigh all ab mt it. Happy
scheme! born 01 loves emergencies.
Mr. Tillinghast would carry Klfrida's
beloved maltese homo with him that
night. The next evening, when the
stars were shining, and the presence of
the old .Judge, returned from circuit,for-
bado (Jliirence about tho premises, the
maltose home returning would bear,bound
to its neck by a silken cord, a memo-
nudum of Clarence, his undying affec
tion, and one thing another
Clarence loved thu maltese for its mis
tress sake; but it 1 11st e.illed for all
the love he had in the warehouse before
ho got it home, Tho maltese was one of
the fiery, untamed Ukraine breed ; blue
is smoke, with a tail liken second growth
bologna sausage, and weighed about
twenty three pounds. Its name was
Uleopatra. It was really a Mark Antony
cat, but -Miss 1 'Hteubaugh called it Uleo
patru because it was such a pretty name.
ou can never tell whether a cat has
a right to vote or not by tho name a girl
Air. I illiiighii-.l tucked the cat under
his coat a well as ho could, but the cat
stuck out fore and aft. Vainly ho strug
gled with it, bowsprit or spanker would
stand out 111 spite ot him. And when
lie was about halt way homo ho met a
group of friends, ladies and gentlemen,
returning from some festive and cxpon
hive ice cream saloon. They accosted
him, and ho had to let go with onu hand
to lilt his hat, and as ho did so Uleopatra

in a tone that blighted the lilacs and
threw one of the ladies into hysterics,
Appalled by tho fearful sound and its
terrible conseiiiieni'i', -Mr. Tillinghast
was burning on, when one of tho gen
tleinau collared him and told him that
in his opinion it was a verv biutakcow
ardly trick, and one that no gentleman
would bo guilty ol, and I10 believed Mr,
Tillinghast never would havo done it had
he not been intoxicated, and ho would
expect an explanation and apoloiiv from
I. .. ...1 , 1
mm wneii lie was souer.
(neatly depressed in spirit, Mr. Till
ini'iiast pursued ins homeward way,
Cleopntia occasionally clawing his ribs
in a maniier that indicated an early
grave. Often the eiratiu eccentricities of
Cleopatra compelled tho young man to
weep aloud, but thev reached homo at
hist. Cleopatra curled up on tho foot of
tho bed and purred Inmsell to sleep with
thu calm content of a cat that had made
a substantial lunch of thu human ribs.
and Mr. Tilliuglnst sat tip tho gieater
part 01 tho night writing a letter lull ot
poetry, and bathing his lacerated body.
Next evening ho mado ready to sen'd

nothing during tho day, and Cleopatra
in tho frenzy of hunger, Ind chased im
aginary rats about the room until there
wasut lutt in it aplee.'of fragile furiii
tuio big enough to break attain. Tho
only thing that wasn't scratched was tho
coiling, mid tho only thing that wau
broken was the hammer.
"If," said Mr. Tillinghast, holding his
lacerated hands in a bath of water and
sodn, after tying his letter caiefully
aioiind Cleopatra's neck with a blue lib-
bon, "if your 'yearning' to return home is
one half so vehement as initio is to have
you return thither, you will bo in the lap
of your angelic mistress beforo 1 can

Anil so he opened tho door. Clo jp.i
tru went out into the gloaming with tho
nir of a cat who was just going to say
something like that anyhow when he
suggestcdit. Mr. Tillinghast did not
appear to notice this peculiar expression
011 Cleopatra's countenance. lie was
looking nt the Bky.
"l he stars arc shining, lie saui, "she
looking for my message and she is
thinking of me."
And Miss lJiffenbaugh t
She was sitting in her lonely bower,
looking out into the star-lit nig!it,sayiiig,
His messenger, with leet ot silence, is
oven now on its way to tell me he loves
me yet. I ieel his presence near me.
in the meantime Cleopatra was car
rying out his contract after the approved
manner of a veteran Star routo contrao
tor. Ho got along very well for a ciuar
tor of amiie,aud was makingprettygood
tune, when, while streaking down a
loiiesomo alley, ho suddenly paused nnd
"I hope to die if I don't smell fish."
And while hu was exploring the ash
ile, hu was suddenly accosted by a
onesome cat on tho woodshed.
"Say, old indigo blue, shinny on vour
own sido I"
"Watchuci.iuus f growled Cleopatra,
just glancing up long enough from tho
old mackerel to tako the woodsiieddem

The strange cat reached out to take
tho savory fish aud Cleopatra smote
him, In less time than it takes to tell it
he stood that cat in the corner of the
fence and whipped enough hair off him
to stuff a sofa cushion. And tho wailing
cat dragged its lacerated body down
the drain, Cleopatra resumed his fish, rc-

marking, as uu tiuugeu a pa3iug uiauit-
uig brush, that he Loiieved, as long as
ho was out, he'd sit up a little while and
havo some fun with thu bovs.
And ho had it. He went down the
alleys and danced to everything he met.
He nearly tore the ear oil a smart kitten
that got up on a woodpilo and sassed
him and asked him "where ho picked up
that paper collar." Ho prowled through
back yards, and almost horrified the lite
out ot a most highly respectable elderly
tortoise-shelled tabby, sitting in the
kitchen window, by creeping up close
under the windoA', and then roaring out
to know if "she danced tho lancers.
He scalped a harmless Mexican dog all
the way down the bare back, in six red,
raw lines, nnd shouted after the anguish
stricken animal to "run "lotne and put
on his hair !" Ho was hit once with an
old kerosene torch that perfumed up like
political procession, and hu crawled
through an old drain back of the soap
!:s, and canio out smelling worse
than an Indian pio nic. At last hu heard
music over in "Stony Lonesome," and
went there and found tho boys were hav
ing a littlu dance, and thu first thing ho

Zacli Cliniitllrr on Hayes,
"Zach" Chandler was a profane man,
and in his own forceful phrase, "the
Hayes crowd was pizen" to him. It is
unnecessary to make uny further r.lltislon
to tins ipiestionablo habit, evenpt to
nay that when he is unfiled the leader
may lard the conversation at his pleas
ure. The listener to whom Air. Chand
ler made proclamation of his hopes and
intentions had brought a message to tho
Senator from Mr. Hayes. The message
was to the efFect that Air. Hayes desired
closer communion with tho Stalwarts,
lie had announced to a fiiend who hnd
given tho message to him, who now de
livered it to Mr. Chandler, that he saw
no reason for any difference between the
Stalwarts and himself! while lie recog
nized the fact that the satnu forces in the
Kepublican party which put them out
put him in, he had never used the power
of his administration ntrainst them.
Sincu hu had been elected President, Lo
gan and Carpenter and Chandler had all
comu back into public life without any
opposition from him or his adniinistra
tieii. He hoped they could bo friends.
Tlio messauc was delivered. Then the
old man broke forth. He was almost
whito witli rage, as he walked back and
forth in the littlu room. When hu found
his voice he shouted out; "Hayes is the
most wonderful liar I ever saw." He lies
all the time and on every subject."
Then, loosening his necktie, and L'alh-
eriug himself up for a disclosure that ho
intended should go down to poster it v.
he told tho story of how Hayes oneetried
to use him, on the pretence that lie
wanted to bo friends with thu Stalwarts.
somewhat as follows: "Don't tell mu
anything iuore that comes from tlmtliar.
I know him as no oneeKe knows him: I
know him through and through. Whv
I made him President of the lnited
States, and every man, woman and child
in the L nitcd btates.except Ilaves.knows
that. He is an ungrateful, cowardly
liar!" and the old man's wrath almost
choked him. He went on: "Why, when
his administration began I went to him
and told him that if hu would send
Cluistiancy down to Peru, nothing in
God's world could stop my joining flack
to the Semite, and I wanted to be on at
least equal terms with a Hepublican Pre
sident as a Confederate Senator would
be. 'Oh, my dear Air. Chandler.' said
Hayes, 'is that what you want?! How ex
cellent thing it is that you have comu
to me in this friendly may I say broth
erly? way. I love" the Stalwarts as I
do my own people; and nothing
would so fill my heait with gladness as
to have in ;the Senate some such Stal
wart as you are for a fiiend. Vou could
do so much toward making the factions
comu together into a more fraternal
union.' 'Is that all you want!' said I;
and tho old man roared bluflly after his
wont "Well, I'll fix that right oil'."
How can you fix it; said Mr. Haves.
'I'll fix it vou leave it to me.'
" 'Hut how can you' said he. 'Givo
i dinner party,' said I. 'Vou invite
twenty and I'll invito twenty and we'll
arrange it over a glass of wine. Oh, you
needn t be afraid. Ill pay all thu bills.
It won't cost you anything. Vou just
invite your twenty, and I'll givo you a
list of my twenty.'
"Well, I went away and Haves never
had that dinner party. I was elected Sen
ator, aud Confederate Senators had a
good deal more influence at thu White
House than I ever did. Once only 1
heard from that dinner. One night I
was sitting in my room and ISvarts came
in. I didn't exactly know what business
he could have with me and I waited to
hear. We talked about the weather
and passed thu timu of day, and the
chat got nther dull.when Kva'rts cleared
his throat once or twice and finally stam
mered out: 'We' those fellows always
saui we, as though they were afraid to
stand alone 'We have come to the con
elusion not to have that dinner as you
suggested, but I'll give one at my house.'
'Well, I don't care low itV given, all
I care for is to do it. Vou can give
the dinner or I will, I don't care o long
as it is given.'
"Kvarts went away.aud I never heard
of thu dinner again. Hayes thought he
could keep us along and make us'stand
by him by lying to us and pretending
that he wanted to bu fiicnds to us."

interesting occasion. Among other
things ho told how Hayes came to veto
the Army bill. Chandler had taken Air.

ineasures that had been put on the stat
ute books during the war and during
tho period of reconstruction. Hu was
then, as always, thu incarnation of stal
wart licptiblicuni.stn. And then, as al-
:iys, Hayes was very weak, and very
untrustworthy, it was generally believed
up to the last moment that he would
sign the bill restricting, a it did, the
usu ot troops at thu polls. The Stalwarts
were in a tronzv. I hey looked upon
such a cour.-o as a biw surrender to the
Democrats. They regarded it as giving

sign the bill spread, until on the night of
thu L'Oth of Apiil, Chandler made up his
mind that he would compel the Presi

Science is a big thing, but there may
sometimes bu too much of it. Thn
Rtrflrotul Advertiser relates a casein
point. A certain scientist learned that a
young man had engaged a buggy at the
livery stable and bribed the liveryman to
allow him to experiment on the 'buggy.
The following was the result;
'i'he young scientist put a small elec
tric lamp on the lower part of the dash
board, out of sight of the driver, and ran
small copper wires to the back of the
seat. It is well known to the student of
nature that when a brunette young man

uUirst until, after dark, there is a cer
tain electric current established, small in
itself, but of great power it carefully
husbanded. Vou have all felt it. It is
like your arm getting asleep or hitting
your funny bone on the arm of a rocking
chair. Well, this wire was placed so that
the arms of the young peojilo would
touch it. Just as they wero passing
Fitzgerald's, there b the toll gate, they
began to snug up, and before they got
to Linderniaii's the little lamp began to
throw out light. It went under the horse's
feet and lit up tho road for several
rods, aud the young people were alinsst
a much astonished as the horse was.
They thought I here was somebody fol
lowing them with a lantern, and they
straightened up ami the light went out.
ivery little while they would get to
gether and kiss eaeli other slyly, and im
mediately the light would blaze up. The
girl was really frightened, and insisted
on tho young man sitting on his side of
the buggy, and ho was a littlu frightened
the first few times the light flared up ;
but as he came out to hug, he was going
to hug if it turned night Into dav : so he
went to lying to her about the horse be-

that when tlivv got wanned un a little

igain appeared, and for an hour they
ode along in thu evening by the bright

itient that he will apply for a natent.
