Schenectady man's oxDerieuce while coasting in a scoop shovel, making tho lust cut time on record, in thus related : Not many evenings ago, a well known resident of this citv. accompanied bv his ft " wife and a steel bcooii shovel, was iour- k. t neying down town from Pago Hill, when, upon arriving at the summit of the Ham ilton etreet hill which was a glare of ice from summit to foot the man jok ingly remarked to the lady that "it wouldn't be a bad idea to ride in the shovel." "You couldn't," said tho woman. "Pshaw 1" Yes I could. I could go." and to illustrate he straddled the handle, which he grasped with both hands, and carefully seated himself iu the shovel. 'Then raising his feet he showed how ho could "steer himself, and said "I could go just ns easy as anything." "Why, so you could." acauiesced his wife, and then giving him a sudden shove, she added : "aud there you go." Hamilton street hill is the steeliest, the 4 icest and "slipperiest" of all Schenoetady hills, and the way the scoop shovel took that man down was a sight t be hold. The fatuous lightning express trains were slow pokes in comparison to that scoop shovel. So fast did it travel that in less than tu o seconds time both shovel and man had disappeared from view of the wife. Hut a second later she was startled by seeing what appeared to be a ball of fire rushing at a lightning speed toward the toot ot the lull, and although considera bly frightened, the woman managed to descend the hill and instituted a search for her husband. ! She found the shovel, which lav appa rently exhausted in a small puddle of melted snow. A short distance fiirthershe discovered he r poor husband seated in a snow-bank and groaning terribly. Even in the larkness she noted the erpresMou of agony upon his face. , "Maria, he murmured, "my Sunday pants nre ruined." Isot another word was t.nokeu. but ft when the shovel had become Bufliciently cool, they started for home carefully selecting the darker sides of the least frequented streets. The man went directly to bed aud his toes were turned toward the springs. i he shovel has recovered, but the man still stands up during meal time. The latest stvle of neck-wear always on hand at Lowenberg's. A doctor recently restored the speech of a woman w'.m had been dumb for seven years, and the last seen of him he was sitting on a rail fence picking the buckshot out of his head, while tho in furiated husband was hustliug toward home to reload his gun.
