Answer to cross- word entema In last week's
Tlmtt i Harry Boule.
AN OFFICE SEEKEIt, traveling In
Texas, on an eleutloneerlng trip,
tells a 1)1 1 of his experience as follows :
" well, I put up with a nrst-rate good
natured fellow that I met at a billiard
table. I went ltl and was introduced to
his wife, a line, fat woman looked as
though she lived on laffin,' her face was
so full of fun. After awhile, In comes
three or four children laughln' and skip
ping as merry as crickets. There was no
candle lit, but I started for my saddlo
bngs, in which I put a lot of sugar candy
for the children as I went along.
"Come hero," said I, "you little
rogue, and tell me what your name is."
The oldest one came to mo and said :
my name's Peter Smith."
" And what's your name :
" Hob Smith."
The next said his name was Dill Smith
and the fourth said his name was
Tommy Smith. I gave 'em sugar candy,
and Mrs. Smith was so tickled that she
laughed all the time. Mr. Smith looked
en, but didn't say muuh.
" "Why," says I," Mrs. Smith,I would
not take a good deal for them four boys,
If I had 'em ; they are so beautiful and
41 No," said she, laffin,' " I set a good
deal on 'em,but we spoil 'ein too much."
" No, no," says I, " they're rale well
behaved children, and by gracious,"
says I, pretending to be startled by a
striking resemblance between the boys
and the father, I looked at Mr. Smith.
41 1 never did see anything equal to it,"
says I, " your own eyes, mouth, fore
head, and perfect picture of hair, sir,"
tapping the oldest on the pate. I thought
Mrs. Smith would have died a laffin' at
that, her arms fell down at her side, and
she shook the whole house, she was so
"Do you think so, Col. Jones," said
she, looking towards Mr. Smith, and I
thogght she'd go off in a fit.
41 Yes," says I, " I do really."
, " Ha, ha, haw 1" says Mr. Smltb,kind
o' half laffin', " you're too hard on me
now, with your jokes."
" I ain't Joking at all," says I, ' they
are handsome children, and do look
wonderfully like you."
Just then' a gal brought a light in and
I'll be darned if the little brats didn't
turn out to be niggers every one of
them 1 and their hair was as curly as the
blackest nigger's'! Mr. and Mrs. Smith
never had any children, and they sort of
petted them niggers as playthings.
I never felt as streaked as I did when
I found nut how things stood. If I
hadn't kissed the nasty things I could
have got over it; but kissing 'em showed
that I was in earnest. Though I was
soft soaping 'em all , the while, how to
get over the scrape I didn't know. Mrs.
Smithlaughed so hard when she saw
how confused I was that she almost suf
focated. A little while afterwards, there was a
whole family of relations arrived from
the city, and turned the matter off; but
the next morning I could see that Mr.
Smith did not like the remembrance of
what I said, and I don't believe he'll
vote for me when election come. I
'spect Mrs. Smith kept the old fellow
under the joke for some time.
. A DUTCHMAN IN TROUBLE.
THERE is a groc up on Varrick
street, whose weight is an even i00
pounds, and he can speak German a
great deal better that he can talk Kng
lish. Across the street lives a boy who
some time since traded off a pair of
skates for an old pistol. He was around,
the grocery with it one day, when the
fat man said :
"Now, my eon, you can't lie to
much careful of dot bistol. , Some day
she will go off and shoot somepody."
"Oh, I'm used to swords and guns
and pistols," replied the boy flourishing
the pistol around.
Veil; j'ou shust look oudt, or I am
no goot," eontinued the grocer, and he
went to put up some sugar.
Next day the boy ' was around there
again, tlw pistol being loaded this time,
lie was pointing it at the grocer's dog,
when the fat man came to the door and
" Toy, whut I tole you, yesterday V"
" You said this pistol would go off
" Yes, I said shust dose words, and
now you look pudt, Somepody can
never tell when anypody'a bistol is
going to shoot off and murder any-
4i She's only loaded with iiowder aud
wheat," protested the boy.
"Dot makes no ' difference In the
world. Nopody aroundt here wants to
be shot mit wheat, and you bad potter
go home and put dot bistol down In dcr
cellar on a nail."
Next day the boy went over to the
grocery after some vegetables. There
was another boy there after milk, and
tho two fell to talking about the Ameri
can rifle team, bull's eyes,plgeon shcots,
etc. The boy with the pistol had nude
some wonderful shots In the back yard,
and had just loaded the pistol up with
beans to kill n cat. N
" She's Jut t.le llghtnln' P ho whis
pered, as he displayed It. '.' What I
want now Is to meet a bear or an In
jln." "Dotplshtol ofer here again ehV"
railed the grocer, as he caught sight of
It. Somepody shall get hurt mlt clot
small gun, and somepody else vill got
put-In shall for ten years!"
He was reaching up for some baking
powder when the boy somehow dis
charged the weapon. A wild yell was
uttered by the boy with the milk, as a
part of the load struck his left hand, but
the fat man just threw himself on a
Centennial howl. He stood up and
howled, and he bent over and howled,
and there was a locomotive screech in
his voice as he addressed the boy with
" Vot I told you so much, eh !"
" You said she'd go off," replied the
"How many peans In -dose gun?"
asked the grocer, as he ceased groaning
for a few minutes.
41 Only eighteen, and I'm very sorry
" Shot eighteen peans Into my potly 1"
groaned the fat man,, wiping his legs
with an old coffee sack.
The boy with the milk had traveled
and the other boy was going, when the
grocer called after him :
" Poy, vhat kind of peans vash dose ?"
" T dun no. Shall I get the doctor V"
" Yes, go right away queek, for some
doctors. I can feel dose beans working
all aroundt my legs, unt I pellef dey
have commenced to sprout 1 Crate
Heavens 1 but did I come over to dis
country to become a peanbole 1"
A surgeon came, and It -was discovered
that one or two of the beans had drawn
blood, while the largest part of the
charge had struck a barrel.
" I can't help dot," replied the grocer
when told that his Injuries were trifling.
" der brinciples off dot bistol Is about
der same as If I vhas in my gralf 1"
The boy who owned the weapon
skulked around until he heard what the
surgeon had to say, and he was greatly
" Looked like ten years at Sing Sing,"
he mused, ' but now I won't even get
licked t If this old pistol made him
howl that way with nothing but beans
how she'd go for a den of robbers with
old nails und buckshot In her!"
The Latest Practical Joke.
TMIE deacon of a church lu a certain
1 town in Barnstable county came to
lioston recently, In order to attend the
revival services at the Moody and San
key tabernacle. Upon his arrival In the
city some of his mischievous friends
conceived tho Idea of playing a practl
cal joke n hlnpjas ho was rather 'green
and matter-of-fact In his ways. They
told him that they would take him with
them to the tabernacle, as they had pro.
cured reserved seats for an evening ser
vice, and he was of course very well sat
isfied with the arrangement. Instead of
procuring tickets for the tabernacle, the
wags bought a choice selection of seats
for the Howard Athenaium ; on tho ap
pointed evening the deacon, whose
knowledgo of Boston was slight, was
escorted to that place of amusement.
As they entered the building the deacon
was shown all the points of interest in
the structure, and was assured that it
had been leased especially for the revival
services. They took their seats aud in
due time the orchestra struck up a lively
march. As tho visitor expressed some
amazement at the worldly character of
the music, he was told that it was " Old
Hundred," with variations as arranged
by Mr. Sankey. When the curtain rose
a " Dutch song and dance mato" made
his appearance in a red shirt, and de
livered himself of a pronunclamento re
garding his boarding bouse. The deacon
was informed that this personage was
Moody, and for a moment he believed it,
but as the performance progressed the
truth began to dawn upon him, and his
friends finally made a clean breast of it,
and told him where he was. The ex
planation was accepted with good grace,
and the party remained throughout the
performance and enjoyed it hugely. The
next day they all went to the Taberna
cle. The facta as stated above are en
tirely without exaggeration, and may be
depended upon as entirely true. Ronton
One Honest, Tramp Discovered.
The Hudson Jteginter says: 44 As a
proof that the tramp is not always the
soulless creature he is generally credited
with being, we note an incideut to his
credit M'hich recently happened. One of
these way-farers culled at the house of a
citizen and begged a pair of panU with
9 hich to cover his nakedness, and re
ceived them with gratitude. Some time
after his departure he returned, saying
that In the fob pocket he had found a
gold ring, Inscribed with Initials, which
he thought might at least be valuable
from association, and he had therefore
found his Way back to restore It. The
ring had been missed some months and
was gladly received by the rightful own
er. Score one for the tramp."
A Sad Case. '
EMIL SCHWEltDTFEGEU, one of
the most brilliant and promising
young men of the pres-senior class at
Cornell university, committed suicide
at Ithaca by shooting himself In tho
head with a small pocket pistol. Some
of the circumstances attending the act
were particularly sad and deplorable.
The young man returned from the in
tercollegiate literary contest in New
York some weeks ago, having secured
the $800 prize for the best examination
in Latin, but with his health broken
down by the hard labor of preparation.
He subsequently became so unwell that
Anally he was obliged to give up his
place in his class,and, this, coupled with
Impaired eye-sight, seems to have led to
the fatal act. Sooti after retiring last
Sunday night some'members of the fam
ily of Trof. Harris, with whom Mr.
Schwerdtfeger lived, heard the report of
a pistol In his room, and on going there
he was found sitting lifeless In a chair
by his table, with the pistol In his hand.
On the table beside him was a kind of
informal will freshly written In which
he explained the cause of tlfo suicide as
"constant slcknesB, and the conviction
that he would never be any better in
this world." He disposed of his per
sonal property to his various university
friends and to Dr. Itodrigue of New
York city, who Was sending him the
university. During his freshman year
Mr. Schwerdtfeger received the prize of
fered by the London Philological society
for the best essay on the English Verb,
and he has been regarded as a prodigy in
the university community for his
A Slight Scare.
A woman living on York stre ac
cidentally filled the sugar bowl WN'h
salt one morning recently, and in about
ten minutes every mouth of that family
was praying and crying,, and drinking
warm water and mustard, and trying to
remember consoling passages of Scrip
ture, while one of the neighbors was
rushing madly down town after a doc

the doctor came with his stomach-pump

salt that was therein, he lifted up his

No Wonder They Failed.
Before the Insurance Committee of
the New York House of Representatives
last week, a sworn statement' of salaries
and expenditures of the Mutual Life In

- Water for Dogs.
A writer in au English newspaper
suys that the great neglect In not provid
ing water for dogs to drink no doubt is
the cause of frequent hydrophobia.
Tbey do not throw off their heart by
perspiration like many other animals,
but from panting and throwing out the
tongue. He says there are many dogs
kept In Portugal, aud there are n.ot
many instances of hydrophobia, al
though the climate is much hotter than
ours. It is there understood to be
niuniciplal regulation to cause troughs
or vessels to be provided near each house
containing u supply of water. There
would be little four of dogs going mad
were tbey regularly supplied with
water, unless bit by some other animal.
ror The Times.
Mr. Editor. Dear Sir : In your paper
of the 6th of March you give an account
of a portion of a sermon preached by a
Itev. Mr. M'Carty, of New York, on tho
subject "Who was Cain's wife?" I
would beg leave to differ with the Rev
erend gentleman for the following rea
sons : First, he says Cain had no sister.
Tradition says he bad a twin sister And
so had Abel. The Bible says Adam had
sons and daughters, born unto himself,
and that he begat sons and daughters
see Genesis 5 4. And again St. Judo
says that Enoch the 7th from Adam .
prophesied. Now St. Jude says that
Enoch was the 7th from Adam, how i
could this be if tradition is not correct ?
We must therefore conclude that Adam
was No. 1 ; Eve, No. 2 ; Cain, 8; his
sister No. 4 ; Abel, No. 5 ; his sister No.
6, and Enoch, Cain's first son, No. 7.
In rio other way would the writings of
Moses, St. Jude and tradition agree.
The Reverend gentleman also places the
building of the city before the getting of
a wife. This Is also a mistake. Tho
city when founded was named after his
first son. Again he thinks that there
was a tribe of people there that possessed
the land of Nod before Cain, and helpeil
to build the city. I would refer the gen
tleman to that great work by Prof. Ham
ilton, of Mobile, Alabama, called " The
Friend of Moses," where he proves
that at the time of building this city
there were many thousands of the de
scendants of Adam and Eve and Caln
in that country. The Rev. gentleman-
seems to Intimate that, that city wa.
built as soon as Cain got Into that land,,
this Is undoubtedly a mistake.
" BEWARE OF MEN."
ASTRANOE CAUTION THISandi(
yet not needless. . A humiliating
truth it is, that there is a necessity for
our being on our guard against our fel
low men, our brethern of tho human
family, those who ought ever to . be
ready to befriend us. What volumes do
these words speak to our shame Y So
depraved, so sinful, so devilish even has
man become, that his brother man must
beware of him. He must even be vig
ilant, lest he bo wronged by him in some
way and by some means.
Let it be said, Indeed, that this caution
is not needful with respect to all. There
are noble exceptions. There are those
in whom we may confide. There are
those who would no sooner wrong us
than they would wrong themselves.
But such are the exceptions, not the
rule. The caution, to beware of men, is
of general, though not of universal ap
plication. O, what an untold amount
of wrong is perpetrated by the race one
upon another ! How true those oft
quoted words of Burns:
" Man's inhumanity to man
Makes countless thonsands mourn ."
To specify all the methods of abuse
and unklndness would be an almost end
less task. In inflicting these,every com
mandment of the second table of the
decalogue is violated in a thousand
forms. Every newspaper that we read
contains a long, sad chapter of man's
misdoings 'towards his fellow man.
And then the thousandth part is not
told. When all shall tie revealed in the
judgment of the great day, what a dis
closure there will be! Alas! that it
should be thus. Alas ! that every man
should not be the friend of his brother
man. Alas ! that instead of going about
doing barm, each and all, like the
Saviour, should not go about doing
Blessed be God, better times are com
ing to our sinful, sorrowing world.
The glorious gospel is to bo preached to
every creature. Its benevolent princi
ples are to gain ascendency in human
hearts tho world over. There is to be a
universal prevalence of this holy re
ligion ; and blessed times those will be.
Universal peace and love will reign.
44 They shall sit every man under his
vine and under his fig tree: and none
shall make them afraid." 44 They shall
not hurt, nor destroy in all God's holy
mountain. Al Y. Observer.
When Peter of Croton was en
gaged on a picture for the royal palace
of Petti, Ferdinand II. particularly ad
mired the representation of a weeping
child. 44 Has your Majesty" said the
painter, 44 a mind to see this child
laugh V" And suiting the action to the
word, the artist merely depressed the
corner of the lips and the inner extremi
ty of the eyebrow, when the little urchin
teemed in danger of bursting his sides
with laughter, who a moment before
seemed breaking bis heart with weeping.
If this be true in the word of living
men, slight, very slight, are the causes
that make or break the happiness of
life. The touch of a brush can dim
heaven with a cloud, or brighten tho
propecta of the fair horizon.
O" The only sin which we never for
give in each other is difference of opinion.
