" 'Tis the carious-cat thing!"
Along in the early spring, when the
plow had turned the moist brown earth
open to the suu, Mother Crinkle's heart
was stirred within her. The oddest lit
tle woman she ! It was as if she hail ex
haled; and all left was a trim, scaut
drees, with a crook in the back, a tidy
neckerchief and a funny stick-up cap.
Only under the cap was a live, sweet
face, and under the kerchief was a live,
sweet heart; else how could it have
stirred within her when the earth was
Por scores of years, every single year,
when this st range old planet had whirled
around into its spring-time. Mother
Crinkle hud dug and hoed and raked
over her beloved garden-patch, and
drawu her seed bags from the topmost
self, and had sown and planted the
seeds in the hills and straight rows wait
ing. And then had watched and cared
for, and weeded and watered, and
gnardeil from bug and beetle, until at
last, wheu the strange old planet had
slipped iuto its autumn, everything was
grown and ripeued, and she gathered
aud garnered the roots and the fruits of

It was an autumn day. Fair upon
the hills in the sunlight stood the
sheaves of cvvru, finished andjwaiting,
Iblea of red-obeekeil apples lay under
the trees; a hundred yellow pumpkins
were tumbled in the fence-corner; pears
dropped now and then from the bent
boughs; purple grapes hong heavily
from the vine; lovely, idle clematis was
ene wreath of plnmes; creeper clung
tenderly to the old wall, its five-fingered
leaves full of scarlet and amber and
crimson anil gold; an army of golden
rod hedged the tone, nodding ita crests
in the wind; the great elm above hung
out a banner or two; while at its feet
the astors stood ready to grieve ont
their starry bine eyes. Everything, like
the com. was finished and waiting.
Even Mother Crinkle's busy hands
were stayed, or she would never have
paused to say, •* Tis the curious-est
Mother Crinkle sat in the door. As
she spoke, Joey, the mottled eat, rubbed
fondly against her; and Shep, the dog,
lazily winked off a fly and looked up
into her face; and the chickens stopped
to listen, and the boy Ned turned from
his Jack-o'-lantern to hear; while the
maiden, leaning against the fence,
turned her graceful young head. For
all wanted to know what was carious to
Mother Crinkle, as she sat looking down
across her garden-beds. And she told
"Last spring. dears, I planted that bed
with seeds—the costliest seed in all the
seed-book, with the greatest, longest
name and the beantifalest picture to
look at. Well, I looked and looked, an'
never a seed of 'em all came up. An' I
said to myself: All my care has been
for naught! But by and bv—what do
you think, dears? Somehow, by hook
or by crook (how the clouds only know
—I don't), one single sqnash seed had
got into my nice ground,and it came np,
and it grew, and it grew, and grew, till
it spread all over everything and went
over the fence-top besides. Then it
blossomed, and the squashes set an' set;
and then they grew, until I thought
they would burst theii selves. And there
I have now a family of twelve squashes,
as big as ever you saw and as yellow as
butter, all sittin' in their green leaves.
An' nobody ever asked 'em to come ! So
you see, my children, how the first is
last and the last first: an' there ain't no
knowin' how things will turn out An'
i: is the curious-est thing in all creation
how the Lord gives an' takes, an' helps
an' hinders; and that is the long and
the short of the whole matter."
And Mother Crinkle laughed a little
mellow laugh, that almost had a tear in
it— The Independent.
Xarrotics and Stimulants.
Some curious statistics as to the con
sumption of narcotics and stimulants by
the world in general are given in a late
report of Mr. Jez Killebrew, the com
missioner of agriculture in Tennessee.
Paraguay tea, it is computed, is used by
i 0,000.000 human beings, coca by 10,-
000,000, chicorv by 40,000,000, oocoa by
50,000,000 and coffee by 100,000,000.
The consumers of betel are set down at
100,000,000, those of hashish at 300,-
000,000, and those of opium in one or
another form at 400,000,000. These
figures are, however, eclpsed by tha
proportions of the demand for Chinese
tea, which is sakl to be used by half a
billion; while the consumers of tobacco
are not only still more widely distribut
ed, but present the astonishing aggregate
of 800,000,000. According to a careful
estimate prepared for this report, tobac
co is more generally nsed than any other
sii rie article of commerce consumed by
ina>\ The United States in 1860 pro
duced more than 430,000,000 pounds of
tobacco, bat ten years afterwards the
yield of the plantations bad dwindled to
about 260,000,000. The report doee not
state the exact quantity grown in any
subsequent year; bnt it seems that the
exports alone in 1875 reached about
220,000,000 pounds, vnlned at more than
525,000,000. According to the United
States Bureau of Statistics, leaf tobacco
valued at nearly $29,000,000 was sent
ont of the country in the year ending
June 30, 1877. These figures woald
make tohacco rank sixth in the list of
exported staples from the United States,
cotton, breadstuff's, petroleum, and the
precious m'efals alone exceeding it in
of the Uasted i States for tobacco was
Germany, which, notwithstanding the
large quantity grown in Prussia, took
56,000,000 pounds, while Great Britain,
which proijnfces none, took only 54,000,-

Quite a remarkable case is reported
in Larue Cbnnty, in the vicinity of
Brush Creek, Ky. One old man named
Henry Mi&tison had for fifteen years

In 1873, "Mulligan's Hail" was a
basement saloon in Broome street It
had been growing worse and worse, and
one evening, hearing a disturbance,
Captain Williams and the officer on that
post went in. There were thirty-eight
persons, men and women, of every
color and nationality, all of the worst
character and some notorious iu crime.
The captain took in the situation at a
glance, and determined with a thought
to arrest the whole party. Placing his
back to the front door, he covered
the back door with his revolver,
and threatened death to the first pers n
who moved. Then he sent the patrol
man to the station for help, and fcr fif
teen long minutes held that crowd of
desperadoes at bay. They glared at
him, squirmed anil twisted in their
places, scowled and grated clenched
teeth, itohed to get at their knives and
tear him to pieces; bnt all the while the
stern month of that revolver looked at
them, and looked them ont of counten
ance, and the steady nerve behind it
held sway over their brutal ferocity. It
was a trial of nerve and endurance.
Captain Williams stood the test and
saved his life. He wonders now why
they did not shoot him a dozen times.
Certainly it was not because they had
any scruples, for the first two prison
ers sent to the station killed Officer
Barns with a paving-stoue before they
had gone two blocks. Oaptaiu Allaire
made an almost precisely similar single
handed raid on the famous "Burnt
Rag" s&ioon in Bleecker street, one

A Montana Wagon Train.
In an article on "Montana," a writer
says: Probably the true menuing of
the words, "A wagon train," as under
stood in those far conn tries, is new to
many. Imagine a team composed of ten
or twelve yoke of oxen,or |>airs of mules
or horses—rarely the latter—drawing
slowly along the road a string of heavy
wagons, at least three in number, canvas
covered, the leading wag< loaded with
ten or twelve thousand pounds, the
others proportionally les; then put
three or four or a dozen of these strings
of wagons, with their teams, upon the
road one after the other, a teamster to
each team—stalwart fellows, profane,
covered with dust from head to feet,
armed with a tremendous black snake
whip; a few led horses following along;
a wagon master, with geaeral snper
vision, who seems capable of oombining
in himself the nnited dirt, profanity and
energy of all his train, bnt almost uni
formlv faithful, hospitable, and, away
from business, kindly; and there is pre
sented an idea of a wagon train of the
mining territories when moving over a
comparatively level and easy stretch of
But when a steep ascent has to be
passed, or a mad h<ne has been develop
ed, or other similar obstacle lies in the
way, all this is changed. The wagous
are detached from each other, the team
conveys them one by one past the diffi
cult spot amid redoubled profanity,
noise an l tumult, increasing geometri
cally with the labor, until the passage
made, the trails re-nnite with the leading
wagon, and all goes on as before.

.Vt iu, wr.tiiig from Paris, saya ; Hero ia
tin last balloon story: Mousiour Gisl
rd, in liia laat journey to theolonda but
one, was acoompanieit bv a single follow
traveler, who had }>aiil one thouaand
franca for the privilege of a place by tho
aide of the celebrated aeronaut, Tho
weather WHS splendid and the balloou
had reached a considerable height.
" What effect hue .1 on tou? iuquired
M. Godard of hia ootnpaiiiou.
" None whatever," wua tlie curt reply.
" 1 must couipluueiit you," said M.
Godard. " You arc the first amateur I
hare ever known to roach tins altitude
without experiencing some emotion."
"(l.i higher," said the amateur oooiy.
M. Godard threw out some ballast and
the lialloon ffew up notuo aixty yards
" Now, how do you feel ?"
" Juat ns usual,'' said the companion,
iu rather a petulant tone,
"By Jove!" exclaimed M. Godard,
" vou are a born aeronaut, air."
The ballot u kept 011 rising, and, when
a few yards higher, M. Godard, for the
third time, questioned his companion as
to hia emotions.
" Emotions ! net a trace of emotion,"
replied he, with the tone of a man who
feels that he has been taken iu.
" Well, so much the worse," said the
aeronaut. " I see 1 shall not be able to
alarm yon; we have risen high enough,
and we shall now descend."
" Descend ?"
"Yes, certainly; it would be danger
ous to go higher."
" I don't care about the danger, aud I
dou't choose to deaoend. I'm going
higher, 1 am. I paid a thousand francs
iu order to experience some emotions,
anil emotions I'll have before going down
M. Oodard burst out laughiug. Ue
thought tlie man was joking.
"Are you going up higher oruot?"
said the companion, at the same time
grasping M. Godard hy the throat and
shaking him violoutly. " I intend to
have mv emotions."
M. Ohtdard saw at a glauce that he
hail to do with a madiuan. Tlie dilated
eyes, the furious grasp, the very tone of
lus voice left no doubt about that.
But what was to be done ? They were
some 3,000 feet high among tlie clouds;
a struggle w(is out of the question, as
oue violent motion of the madman would
be enough to upset the car. AU these
thoughts passed through M. GoJard's
mind in leas than a second. His adver
sary was a powerful man, and without
loosening his grasp he called out: "Ah,
my tiue fellow, you have l>cen playing
the fool with me. You have made me
pay one thousand francs and not given
me a single emotion."
" Well, but what would you have me
do?" asked M. Godard, calmly and
" I'm goiug to throw you over,"
said the madman, with a mild laugh;
" but first an idea strikes me; I'll go up
to the top of the baloou," and suiting
the action to the word, he jumped into
the rigging of the car.
" But, my poor friend," said the wro
aaut, " you'll kill yourself like that " —.
The madman uttered a threat. "At
least," said M. Godard, " let me put a
rope around your waist to prevent an
"Well, be it so," said the madman,
who seemed to see the necessity of some
precautioo; and the rope having been
attached he recommenced climbing the
rigging of the balloon with the agility
of r. squirrel, and in a few moments was
seated on the apex, clappiug his hands
and shouting with joy. All at once he
takes out of his p<x-ket a largo clasp
knife, and, brandishing it above his
head, yells out: " Now, you rascal 1 you
wanted to descend, did you? So yon
shall with a vengeance f" And, before
M. Goddard can utter a word, four out
of the six ropes attaching the car to the
balloon are cut, and the car itself swing
ing helplessly outside. The mailman's
knife was now touching the other two,"
when the aeronaut calls out to him, "Stop,
" No, no; down you go."
" Bnt let me tell you something, my
friend: we are now 3.000 feet high, it is
true, but that is not high enough for s
thorough good fall."
" What do you mean ?" asked the
" I mean this, that a fall of only 3,000
feet m<ght not kill me, and I prefer be
ing only crippled. Oblige me, there
fore, by waiting until we rise 3,000 or
4,000 feet higher."
" Agreed !" said the madman, who
seemed to enjoy the idA of so prodigi
ous a fall.
The leronant keeps to his word; ho
throws ont nearly whole of his bal
last, and the balloon shoots np rmpidlv.
But while the man is attentively watch
ing this operation M. Godard observes
that among the oordages as yet un
touched is the pulley of the gas escape.
He gently draws the cord and the gas
begins to escape immediately under the
spot where the lnuatic is perched. Iu a
few moments the combined effects of the
gas and the uow intensely raritled air arc
apparent, and the madman sicks into a
state of lethargy. The icronaut cau
tiously brings down his balloon and the
crisis is ended.
The Palace of the Itoges of Venice.
We visited the Palace of the Doges,
writes a correspondent from Veuice, and
found it the most interesting historical
structure that we have yet visito 1. Here
are the council chamber and the trial
room of the Conneil of Ten, and the
passages leading to the Bridge of Sighs,
from the trial room, all so perfect and
well planned as to need no explanation.
There is also the auti-chamher of the
three Inquisitors of the Republic nud
the series of cells, or rather stone dun
geons, where political prisoners were
confined anil secretly killed. There are
at least twenty of these dungeons, some
of them underground, narrow passages
leading from one to the other, and there
is also in these dark and dismal holes
the place where prisoners were executed,
with a drain pipe to carry off the blood
ito the canal. What human misery there
must have been in these dungeons!
The various rooms are decorate* 1 very
elegantly and the walls and ceilings
covered "with paintings, by all the great
Venetian artists, most of them repre
senting battles of the republic. The
library in this palace is famous all over
i the world, consisting of 220,000 volumes
and 40,000 mauuscripts. They fill sev
eral immense rooms, and some of them
have marked on their backs the date of
publication as far liack as the twelfth
century. The interior of the pnlace is
immense and the rooms are nil large,
with lofty ceilings and the most elegant
ornamentation. They are evidently just
in the condition that they were left
when the first Napoleon took Venice and
broke np the Inquisition, dismantled
the prisons anil did many other good
things for Venice, tbongh he was not
i generally in the habit of doing well for
those be conquered.
Drinking Ire Water.
There in no more donbt that drinking
ice water arrests digestion than there is
that a refrigerator would arrest perspira
tion. It drives from the stotnnoh its
natural heat, suspends the flow of ffus
tric juice, and shocks and weakens the
delicate organs with which it oomes in
contact. An able writer on human dis
eases says: '• Hahitnal ice water drink
ers are usually very flabby about the
region of the stomach. They complain
that their food lies heavy on that patient
organ. They taste their dinner for hours
after it is bolted. They cultivate the
use of stimulants to Aid digestion. If
they are intelligent they read upon food
anil what the physiologist has to say
about it—how long it takes cabbage and
pork and beef and potatoes and other
meats and esculents to go through the
process of assimilation. They roar at
new bread, hot cakes, fried meat, im
agining these to hnve been the cause of
their maladies. But the ice water goes
down all the same, and finally friends are
called in to take a farewell look at one
whom a mysterious Providence has
called to a clime where, as far as is known,
ice water is not used. The number of
immortal beings who go hence, to return
no more, on acoount of an injudicious
use of ios water, can hardly be estimat

officials of the department of agriculture
that the Southern State# have l<een
much more willing and euterpriaing
with regard to sending article* for ex
hibition bere than have any of the Nor
thern States. If more time bad been
given, I am convinced that the Month

On cases at the pointa of the star sit
vain a illustrating the varioDH marbles of
the United States, and in each vase a
plant which is a staple in America is
growiug. Corn, wheat, cotton, tobacco,
rice and sugar cane are thus illustrated.
In the eases there is a very large collec
tion of insects hurtful to crops; one is
inclined to wonder at the mysteries of
Providence when one sees so many va
rieties of bugs created expressly- to dis-
Siute the frnita of the earth with man.
a the case beneath each vase are speci
mens of the staple product which is
growing above. For example, wheat is
shown growing, then the high milling
and low milling processes are lllnstrated;
then flour, cracked wheat and oaten
grits are exhibited. Corn is showu in
the husk and oat of it; corn meal for
cattle food, and corn hominy and ooru
flour come next. Tobacco is also dis
played in the same ela I tor* to fashion.
The top of the central structure is
crowned with a receptacle in which all
kiuds of domestic fowls are shown. The
ornamentation of the side* of the roof
are very pretty, and extremely appro
priate. It is made entirely of corn cars,
wheat sheaves, cotton and tobacco.
Oregon lias also contributed a few furs,
which are a source of great amusement
to the European visitors. The Oregon
iaDs appear to have taken a very sub
stantial interest in the exhibition, for
they have sent not only specimens of
their grains, bnt a beautiful case made
out of all the kiuds of timlier which are
found in their State. California has
sent some wheat which weighs sixtv
eight pounds to the bushel, which is
fully equal to the Australian piize
wheat, and Oregon has contributed some
which weighs seventy pounds to the
bnahel. The collection of corn from
different sections of the country is very
interesting, and the products, such as
corn starch, excite much interest. New
Orleans has sent a go si show of rice.
Connecticut, Tennessee and Indiana
show the beat lots of corn. The Indian
apolis Board of Trade has shown itself
more enterprising than that of any other
city.ar.d sends some exceedingly interest
ing contributions. Kentucky, Louisiana,
Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and Con
necticut contribute tobacco, aud the ex
hibit of the weed as manufactured is
enormous. The cottons of the New Or
leans and Memphis districts occupy a
large space, aud are very much admired.
Georgia semis the largest quantity of
cotton, and South Carolina is next in
rank. Of fine merino wool,E. J. Hyatt,
of Chester Hill, Ohio, contributes six
fleeces which cannot, I should think, be
matched by any others in the whole ex
hibition. From West Virginia came
some fleeces exhibited during the Cen
tennial year at Philadelphia. An Eng
lish shoep grower, looking at them the
other day, said they were fully equal to
any whirli can bo produced in Australia,
and that were it not for the prohibitory
law in ihe lust-mentioned country, a
huge trade in fine wool sheep could be
established with the Australians.
A collection of patent process flonr
from Fredericksburg, Virginia, and an
other from Minneapolis, attract oansid
erablo attention. Louisiana sugars are j
well represented. Htigars from the oane,
from sorghum, from corn stalks made by 4
Btow-art's process, and from the early
atnlier sugar cane, which can be grown
in all the Northern States, by the way,
are here. A French refiner, who was
looking at the display the other day,
mentioned the fact that for ease and
profit in refining sorglmm ranks first,
cane from Louisiana next, and finally
the beet sugar of France. Ho was curi
ous to know what cane sugar from
Louisiana car. bo set down unrefined in
Paris for. Maple sugars have leen sent
from Ohio, but none from New England,
a neglect, one would think, of which our
section ought to be ashamod.
Of wines, the United States has sent
a large variety, principally from the
Western and Southern States. The ver- j
diet of European judges upon them will
be exceedingly ipteresting. The cham
pagnes from America can be furnished
at prices which would enable them to
enter the European market, provided
they should prove to the taste of the
people.— Edward Kiny in Jio* ton

<'(injuring In India.
The learned class of Huddhists repu
diate ami despise the grosser exhibitions
of common magic ami charlatanism; hut,
an the common people will not diNjieiise
with these marvels, every great monas
tery keepa a conjurer who doe* not be
long to the brotherhood of the convent,
and is allowed t*i marry. The practi- ;
tinners possess no literature, but liaml j
down the secrets of their art by tradi
lion. Iu India, conjuring as well us
snake charming is a henslitnry profes
sion, ami the mvsttc practices are trans
mithsi from father to son.
A very learned friar, who is spoken of
as perfectly truthful, says that among
the Tartars there are certain men whom
; tliey honor alsive all others, who are
idol priest* from India, persons of deep
wisdom, welt conducted, and of the pur
est morals. They are acquainted witii
the magic arta, ami de|mml iijxm the
counsel ami aid of demons. 'I hey can
ait in the air without auv visible support,
first on a trqwxl of three sticks, then .
one stick after another is removed, and
still the tiuin remains, not touching tlie
grotiud. lie further relates that with a
long cane lie fell all under the sun|>eml*d j
individual, ami found nothing U|sin '
which his laxly rested. This last per
formance was profcaocdlv exhibited in
Madras during the present ix-utury, and
is minutely described by writers.
And now cornea the most astonishing
| trick of all, which has a touch of tragedy
to give it a more piquant flavor. 1 shall
tell it in the quaint language of the old
I chronicler, somewhat abbreviated. After
describing very vividly tlie basket mur
der trick, which is well knowu in India,
he says: " 1 am now alvotif to relate a
tiling which surpasses all lielicf, and
winch 1 sin uld scarcely venture to in
sert here had it not lxen witnessed by
thousands under uiv own eyes. One of
the party t<xik a ball of cor.!, and, gra*p
mg one end, threw the other up iu the
air with such force that its extremity
was beyond the reach of our sight. He
then immediately rliuibed up the cord
Willi incredible swiftness, and waa*ts>u
out of sight. I st.ssl full of astonish
ment, not CouCclYlug what was to collie
of this, when, lo! a leg come tumbling
down out of the air. Oueof the conjur
ing company instantly snatched it up
and threw it into a bosket. A moment
after a hand came dos-n, and immediately
on tliat another leg. And in a short
time *ll the uieiulters of the laxly came
thus successively tumbling from the air,
and were cast together into the basket.
The last fragment of all we saw come
down was the he* 1, and no txxmer had
tiiat touched tlie ground than he who
had snatched up oil the limbs ami put
iheui into the basket turned them all
out *g*iu topy tarry. And straightway
I saw with these ey<- all those limbs
creep together again, and, iu * short
, time, form a whole man, who stood up
and walked alxmt without showing the
least damage! Never in my life was I
so astonished as when I beheld this
wonderful |>erformanoe, and I doubted
now no longer that these misguided men
did it with the help of the devil. I had
an attack of palpitation of the heart
like that which overcame tne once before
in the presence of the sultan of India
w heu he /dniwed me -.•Lurthmg of that
kind. They gave me a Cordial, however,
which cured the attack. The K*?.i

he, ' Wallah I 'tis my opinion theie has
beeu mother going up nor coming down,
neither marring nor mending; 'tis all
hocus poctis!' which was a very wise
conclusion to come to."
Ediaou has given to the world several
valuable inventions (facetiously remarks
a New York paper), but he will do well
to make the most of hta fame, l>ecauso
there ia a man in Hackenaark, N. J.,
who will douotleos noon outshine him aa
a benefactor to his race. This philan
thropist long ago decided that mankind
needed notmng ao much as a oolir-proof
cucumber. He bad for years appreci
ated the delicate taste of that watery
vegetable, and had the fullest realization
of it* cooling effect wht-u served, acidu
lated ami iced, with the morning meal.
Bnt his pleasure was always destroyed
by a knowledge that the fesst would be
followed by that abdominal torture,
which the cneumlter is so well fitted to
produce. He therefore concentrated
ins mental powers on the production of
a cucumber which would satisfy the
palate without offending any of the
organs with which it might afterward
come in contact. His plan wa* to apply
to the ungrowu vegetable the remedies
which are found eff.-ctive in allaying the
pain which it cause* to human being*.
He therefore chose Mima perfect seeds
aud wrapped woh seed in a small piece
of warm flannel soaked with camphor.
In the noil where the seeds were de
' posited he put a layer of ground mus
tard and h sprinkling of cayenne pep
per. As soon as tlie plants appeared
above the ground he sprinkled them
daily with laudanum ami brandy, and,
in order that both school* of medicine
might ah are in tlie glorv of hi* scheme,
he suspended over each hill a bottle con
taining mix vomica ami arnica in pel
let*. By this means he propose* to cure
the cuctimliers of the colic winch they
contain instead of waiting to apply the
remedies toHufferiug man after tlie vege
table has doue it* work. It ui too early
for Hackeuiiack eucumliers yet, but
when the new specie* is ready for market
and is proved a success there can lie no
doubt of the demand for them or of
their inventor's glory.
A Tunnel Costing Four Million Dollar*.
The Virginia City (Nov.) Chroniclr
says: Ground was broken for the Hntm
tunnel <>n the lUtli of October. 1889.
The work has, therefore, required eight
years, eight months and ten days to
complete. The progress was very alow
at first, all drilling having lieon by hand;
but in the spring of 1874, experiments
with a Bnrleigb drill having demon
strated the advantages to be derived
from the use of that machine a carriage
capable of supporting six of those drills
while at work was mode, and on the 22 1
day of June, 1874, four were started.
The progress was now much more rapid
than ever before in the history of tun
neling in the world, and ou August 7,
in the same year, two more drills mere
put to work. This made six altogether.
From that date the average progress
was over 300 feet per month up to April,
1877, when, the header having entered
the broad Gomstook mineral oelt, the
heat became so intense that two drills
bail to be tnkeu off the carriage. From
that day the average monthly progress
did not exceed '250 feet. Work lias been
continued uninterruptedly from the
time that grouud was broken until to
day. but at times only two men wore at
work in the tunnel. The greatest pro
gress was in December, 1875, when the
beading was advanced 417 feet, and the
least in October, 1870, when it was only
advanced nineteen feet The total
length of the tunnel, ua stated in the
official chart published last September,
is 20,170 feet. The tunuel being con
nected with the Coinstock workings, the
next move of Mr. Sutro will doubtless
lie to start north aud south drifts to
connect with all the mines on the lode.
The work has cost nearly 84.000,000.

was attacked with croup, ban died in
terrible agony after the bite of a dog.
He lived with hia father in a handaome
villa with a large garden, at 75 Bne de
la Pomp* Paaay. A play of hia, " Cne
Innoeente," waa in the billa for jxufortn
auee Una week: M. -Mouttgny, aeventy
yearn old, waa about to make over the
theatre to him.
A fortnight ago, M. Cheri Muntigny,
coming home late, received, aa usual, a
deep-mouthed welcome from two pet
doga in the courtyard, one a Dauiah
coach dog, the other a large terrier.
He wan wont to encourage them to bark
and jump upon him. On thia occasion
the terrier, pushing hia careeaee only a
little further than usual, alighUy bit bia
noae. He perceived a little blood, and
on going to bed wiped hia face and
thought no mure of it. Next morning
it wan ascertained that the dog had bit
ten several other doga, and be wan taken
to a veterinary surgeon, who did not
•uapeot hydrophobia, but reported hia
death, which took place iu three daya,
from internal inflammation.
M. Cheri Montigny became uneasy
He concealed the matter from his father,
bat bought several medical books, and
waited with anxiety the fifteenth day,
when he revl that hydrophobia would
declare itself. Lust Wednesday he dined
with Madame Jadic, looked well and
gay, spoke of the dog biting him, bat
showed no untwminem. OB Thursday
he went to the review, and returned with
headache and fever. Next dat he was
treated for sunstroke, bnt on Saturdav
he said he knew he waa going mad, and
naked an old servant to kiss him for the
last lime, begged to hsve a straight
waistcoat put on, tbat be might harm no
one, and died soon after in horrible con
It iii very remarkable that he hail no
nrmptom of lllueae before the renew,
and the question arisen whether hit im
agination, net nip on a brain disordered
by sunstroke, did not make him fancy
he had hydrophobia. There is no re
port of mad dope at Ptsay, and nothing
is said about the Danish companion of
tbc terrier. The /Vance indeed reports
t'iat a groom, who was also bitten, is at
death'a door, but this is not confirmed
by the latest |j>ers.
Making Coffee in a Court Room.
A suit was brought lief ore Justice
Green and a jury of three men yester
day which contains many carious ele
ments. Recently the wife of a well
tnown firm on Water street I*night, in a
considerable bill of household goods, s
coffee jwit. paying $1.73. Bnt neither
she n >r her maid could make acceptable
coffee from the pot, and it was returned
to the dealer. lie refowd to receive it,
! and the husband sued him. Messrs.
Adams and Rogers represented the de
< fetid ant, and the plaintiff managed his
own case. The manner of procedure
In unique, to say the least. The
dealer took the eoffep pot and a liberal
supply of coffee, sugar and cream, a
gasoline atove. and a coffee grinding mill
into the ennrt room. The coffee was
ground in the presence of the jury, the
gasoline lit in the stove, water and
ground ooffeo wore put into the pet, and
the same was allowed to boil over the
gasoline blaxe. At leugth the concoc
tion was pronounced complete, and it
was properly mixed with sugar and cream
and paftaed to the jurors and the justice.
What juryman conld withstand such
sweet blandishments ? They called for
more, and as there was plenty and to
spare, their request was granted. At
leugtii the tliree retired for consultation,
and returning rendered a verdict for the
'man who msde the coffee. (Vrrrtarui
