A l.lmlt to Ills ratlrnen.
Saturday afternoon, when vehicles
were very thick on Washington street,
an old gentleman in a yellow varnished
straw hnt with a wide curving brim
nnd clothes thnt had a rustic flavor, and
carrying nn old black leather valise, sat
on an electric car from South Boston,
bound to the northern depots. As the
car passed Jordan & Marsh's the con
ductor called out, "Next stop Summer
and Winter!" The old gentleman turned
around, looking very much urprised.
"Yon don't say sol" he murmured tim
idly. The car went about two rods
farther and came to a dead stop.
There was a jam of teams .ahead that
didn't neorn likely to be broken for some
time. People began to getwut and go
on afoot. The old gentleman sat still,
but presently he grew uneasy. In a
minute he grew uneasier still and con
sulted a large, open faced silver watch.
He waited about a minute longer, and
then he got np and began to climb down
off the car.
"Look here!" he called out to the con
ductor, "I'm willin to stay -with ye all

And he went on down ihe street.

Th Yorkshire Penny Stank.
"Take care of the pennies and the
pound will take care of themselves" is
an old maxim of great truth. Exempli
fication is afforded in the ease of the
Yorkshire Penny bank, whose trustees
have trust laid the foundation stone of
magnificent new premises in ILeeds. This
Institution has now in its custody 1,440,
000,00 of pence that is, just 6,000,000
of the savings of the people. In 1872
it had nly 830,000. Meanwhile, that
the managers have found the busi
ness of "taking care of the pence," a
profitable one appears evident from the
fact that their reserve fond lias risen
from 0,706 to 160,000.
The greater part of the money in
trusted to the bank by its depositor la
of course invested, and it is stated that
the bank has now 1,250,000 out on
mortgage and over 4,600400t in ne
gotiable securities, including 300,000
in consols. London Tit-Bita.

Buddhist Ceremonies.
Some Buddhist ceremonies present a
striking analogy to certain Christian
rites. Dr. Medhurst aays: "The very
titles of their intercessions, snob as 'god
dess of mercy,' 'holy mother,' 'queen of
heaven,' with an image of the virgin
having a child in her arms holding a
crescent, are all such striking coinci
dences that the Catholio missionaries
were greatly stumbled at the resem
blances between Chinese worship and
their own when they came over to con
vert the natives to Christianity." Lon

Turpentine (or Corn.
The cheapest and surest remedy for
either hard or soft corns is turpentine.
If a little of this is rubbed on a corn
every evening for about two weeks the
corn and root will both come entirely
out and will not reappear in any form.
If the turpentine runs onto the adjoin
ing skin it will cause a little soreness,
but otherwise the remedy is as painless
as it is efficient. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
f, Bravo Thong-h. Beekleet Hunter's Bo
mnrkable Kieapa from a Bear.
3ome years ago, writes Henry Howe, !
1 110 historian of the western pioneers, a
1'iirty of trappers were on their way to i
the mountains, led, we believe, by old
t'liiblette, a well known captain of such
expeditions. Among them was John
Glass, who had been all his life among
the mountains, and had seen numberless
exciting adventures nnd hairbreadth
escapes. On the present expedition he
and a companion were one day passing
through a cherry thicket in the Black
Hills when Glass descried a large gris
tly feeding on pignuts. He at once
gave the alarm and both men crept
cautiously to the skirt of the thicket
They took careful aim and fired their
guns at the same moment. Both balls
took effect, but not fatally. The bear,
growling with pain and fury, charged
upon his foe.
linn for it, Bill," shouted Glass, "or
we'll be made meat of sure as shootinl"
Both men bolted through the thicket,
bnt the heavy brush obstructed their
progress, while the weight nnd strength
of the grizzly bore him on, and h was
soon close upon the men. They man
aged to get through the thicket, how
ever, and were hurrying across a little
opening toward a bluff when Glass
tripped and fell. Before he could rise
the bear was upon uiml
Glass did not lose his presence of
mind, hnt discharged his pistol in the
brute's fuce. The next moment the bear,
blood streaming from his nose and
mouth, struck the pistol from his ene
my's hand and, fixing his claws deep into
the poor man's flesh, rolled with him to
the ground. The hunter struggled man
fully and drew his knife and plunged it
several times into the body of the furious
animal, which was tearing his face and
body, liaring the bone in many places.
Glass, weak from the Ions of blood, at
length dropped his knife and fell over
in a faint.
Bill, who had watched the conflict up
to this moment too badly dazed and ter
ror stricken to do anything, now thought
Gloss was dead, and ran to the camp
with the awful tale. The captain sent
a man back to the spot with Bill. They
found the bear dead and stiff, lying on
the body of the nnfor.tunate hunter,
whom they likewise called dead. His
body was torn and lacerated in a shock
ing manner, and the bear, besides the
three bullets in his body, bore the marks
of twenty knife stalls, showing how des
perately Glass had fonght.
The two men collected their late com
rade's arms, removed his hnnting shirt
and moccasins, and left him beside the
carcass of the grizzly. They reported at
the camp that they had buried him.
In a few days the hunters moved on,
and soon the fate of poor Glass was in a
measure forgotten. Mouths elapsed, the
hunt was over and the trappers were re
turning with their pelts to the trailing
fort. On toir last evening out, just as
they were"1 making ready to camp, a
horseman was discerned coming toward
them, and when he drew near the bant
ers saw lank, cadaverous form, with a
face se scarred and disfigured that
scarcely at feature was normal.
"Bill, my boy," called .the stranger,
as he rode np, "yon thought I was gone
under that time, did you? Hand over
my horse and gun. I aintt dead yet by
a long shot!"
What was the astonishment of Ihe
L party to hear the well known voice of
John Glass, whom they had supposed
dead and buried. The two men who
had left him for dead, and thus made
their reptsrt, were horrified.
Glass, it appeared, after the lapse of
he knew not how long time, gradual
ly recovered conscionsnesa, He lived
upon the carcass of the bear for several
days, until he had regained sufficient
strength to crawl, when, tearing off aa
much of tha) meat as he could carry, he
crept down the river toward the fort
He had suffered much, but had reached
the fort, eighty miles distant, alive, and
concluded his story by declaring, "I'm
as slick aa a peeled onion."
Short LiTOd Crasoa,
This is a great country for crazes.
They sweep over the conn try like cy
clones. Whence they come and whither
they go man knoweth not A few years
ago the entire country was in the throes
of the pedestrian craze. In every city,
town and village athletes were wearily
tramping around and around a sawdust
circle, while thousands of spectators ap
planded the dreary exhibition. Nobody
walks now that can ride.
Next we had the roller skating craze,
which affected both men and women.
It, too, has gone glimmering, leaving a
trail of broken bones in its wake. The
bicycle craze is now upon us, and bids
fair to become a chronic disease. The
man have bad the red necktie erase and
recovered from it in time to laugh at the
suspender craze of their big sisters.
America soon loves her fads to death.

Driving- Out the Babbit.
When the rabbit, which seems to be
a great mischief maker in the folklore
of most races, is identified by the ab
original Cherokee physician bb the cause
of a disease the "rabbit hawk" is sum
moned to drive the wicked animal out
of the patient. Sometimog after the in
truder has been thus expelled "a small
portion still remains," in the words of
the formula, and accordingly the whirl
wind is summoned from the tree tops to
carry the remnant to tho uplands, and
there scatter it so that it shall never re
appear. Washington Star.

After the rather nnsatisfurtory ex
perience of last season the district com
missioners have decided to experiment
further with the free bathing bench.
This time, however, there is to lie no
risk of life, provided the plans of the
commissioners are successful. Last sea
son the bench was open to all comers,
but in the future none bnt experienced
swimmers will be allowed to enjoy the
privilege. With this end in view the
commissioners have, through their sec
retary, Dr. Tindall, addressed the fol
lowing communication to the superin
tendent of the beach:
"The commissioners direct me to no
tify yon to permit persons who can swim
to use the publio bathing bench till

any one to use the beach unless satisfied 1

A perusal of this order will show that
the commissioners have imposed a rather
complicated nnd important duty on 8u
perintondont Stevens. By a strict com
pliance with the order no candidate for
cleanliness will be nllowed to enter the
water unless ho can swim, and the su
perintendent is first to determine one's
ability in thnt direction by "personal

Dight Thousand Flowers on Uto Table.
It must take nearly half an acre of
glass to cover the flowers of tho White
House conservatory. It keeps two men
busy all the time to take care of it, and
the finest of all kinds of flowers from
orchids to roses are in bloom here. There
are broad indin rubber plants which
are worth from .10 to $100 apiece, and
there are some flowers which are abso
lutely worth their weight in gold. On
the night of a White House dinner or
reception the whole mansion is deco
rated with flowers, and at one state
dinner not long ago there was a floral
piece on the table which used 8,000 flow

A Mixed Up Affair.
Recently on the Marietta and North
Georgia railroad a train ran over and
lulled a cow near Thompson, Tenn. A
day or two afterward, when the train
passed through, an officer arrested the
engineer and took him before a justice
of the peace, where he was tried for
croelty to animals. The passenger train
was held four hours, during which time
the mails were delayed. It seems that
the prosecutors have gotten themselves
in a bad fix.
Warrants have been issued by a judge
for the arrest of the justice of the peace,
the officer who made the arrest, the
sheriff and the lawyer for contempt of
court, as the road is in the hands of a
receiver and permission must be secured
to sue the road. The superintendent of
the mail service is alBO after them.

Aa Invention That Promisee to Make Life
Worth Living for Many.
The win! has long been tempered to
the shorn lamb, bnt the baldhead has
had to take the blasts as they came. No
special dispensations in the matter of
weather have been made on his account
Ho has had to look out for himself, and
the fact that he survives so numerously
is perhaps better evidence of his hustling
ability than of his innate goodness.
Why, no one appears able to tell, bnt
certain it is that from time immemorial
there has been none to do the baldhead
It will be remembered that when the
original baldhead was making his way
inmarti TAftial tlitt lit1ilron litf tlio urev.
,de reque(!ted him to "go up." ThU
expreMion has no place in modern slang,
bnt com,,iiance with the order doubtless
IntrnitrAil niivnav Trt aSiHritlsi mnfc dnorfl
on 0r iigt of desirable habitations. Be
that as it may, the fact remains that the
caput destitue of hairy adornment has
all along been the butt for universal
Bnt it is a long lane which has no
turning, and the bald head's turn bos
come at last. Some enterprising philan
thropist has invented a polish for the
imlri0ss crown which is warranted to
turn u lnto 0 thing of nty ond joy
forever. This blessing comes in the
shape of a polish, which is easily ap
plied by a barber and imparts to the al
ready shining crown a shine so brilliant
that it dazzles tho eyes and so smooth
that upon It no fly can gain a foothold.
Those who hae never experienced
the joys and sorrows of baldness may
not be able to appreciate the value of
this discovery. The value is there just
the same. With a little care the polish
cou be made windtight and mosquito
1 proof, Bd the baldheaded man will no
j longer fall an easy prey to the inlhienza
; ijen breezes, while he con lie down to
1 dreams unbroken by the assaults of
ringed things. 8urely the baldhead
j millennium is at hand.
1 The direct moral influence of this dis-
. covery cannot be overrated. With his
sparsely thntched crown priected from
1 the attacks of envious Cascas the bald
; head will recover from his tendency to
' ward the use of unauthorized expletives,
' and he may even rise to the point of
taking a front seat in the sanctuary in
I fly time. Relieved of the necessity for
: turning his skull into a block upon
1 which to butcher the liiusca domestica,
; etc., he will be able to turn his whole
1 thought to the sermon, thus setting a
1 worthy example to the congregation
; while absorbing truths of which he has
; long stood in need.
If there is justice in all things, the
I liiK i who makes two blades of grass
giw whero one has grown before will
' have to take a buck seat when the in
ventor of the polish for baldhoads comes
in for his reward.
Verily, these bo glorious times, and
the baldhead is one of the chief partici
pators in them. Troy Times.
Three Humomna Titles.
Among the whimsical titles which ap
pear on the pages of national history,
few are more apparently frivolous than
the Duke of Marmalade, the Count of
Lemonade and the Earl of Brandy.
They are, or were, however, real titles,
bestowed by a genuine monarch on
three of the favorites, and that, too,
during the present century. In 1811 a
revolution occurred in Hayti, and Chris
tophe, a negro, declared himself em
peror. Through conspiracy and plot,
his life often attempted, he retained
power till 1820, preserving to the last
the appearance of a royal court and cre
ating a numerous ability.
Among them were the three already
mentioned, and the oddity of the titles
has suggested to many writers the friv
olonsness of the African character. In
fact, however, all three names were
those of places, the first two being origi
nally plantations, but latterly towns of
some importance. This fact not being
generally known, a misapprehension hat
arisen with regard to the titles them
selves, which, however absurd, are
scarcely morogtn than some which were
bestowed in France and Germany dur
ing the Middle Ages. Boston Tran
script. KoglWh Rulers and tha Language.
Unlike most other countries England
has repeatedly been governed by for
eigners, who thought so little of their
people that they did not even take the
trouble to learn the language of their
subjects. Most of the Danish kings
knew no English, and if William the
Conqueror, William Rufus and others
knew tho language they kept the fact to
The early French kings, in fact, re
garded England as a conquest and
France as their home. Richard I, for
instance, spent but a few months of the
ten years of his reign on English soil.

nor cared to learn English, and George
II spoke it very imperfectly, St, Louis

Burns in Bohemian has a enriona

is termed among shoe
dealers as cheap shoes,
' 'for instance, " shoes that
sell for one dollar a pair,
we do not handle, for
the simple reason that
goods of that kind will
not build up our Bhoe de
partment. We buy no
Bhoes from what is called
"Jobbers," but place our
orders three and four
months in advance, with
the best Bhoe manufac
turers in the country.
