A fellow named MoNully was n coded in Jersey City, and learning that he was' In Norwich, Ct, the chief of polloe aont of ficer Doyle after him, A few mites out of Norwich, M'Nulty asked to be permlUod to get a drink of water. The train was then traveling at the rate of thirty miles an hour. Instead of stopping to drink at the water tank, M'Nulty threw open the door and made a desperate dash for lib erty. Doyle rushed aftor him, and a brakemac who had witnessed the move nient attempted to sloze the prisoner. Tie fore either could reach him, M'Nulty lenped from the train, turning two hand somersaults with the agility of an accom plished athlete, aud alighting on his feet on the ground. The oouduotor refused to bring the train to a stop, and Doyle had to travel to the first station, 12 miles away. There the officer hlrod a coaoh and started In pursuit of the fugitive. lie expeoted to And him near the place of the loap with his neck brokon. llut when ho got there he discovered no trace of him. Inquiries at farm houses for many miles failed to bring any Information concerning him, till at last, sis miles away, the dotectlve met a rag picker who bad seen a hatless and coatlcss man riding In the bottom of a farm wagon. When Doyle reached the house of tho farmer the wagon had been put away. Doyle auspootod that the bur glar had boon oonoealod by the farmer In his dwelling house, and watched thore till he saw the farmer carrying some bread and milk outside. The farmer, oborved that ho was watched, tin ned back to tho house, aud Doylo demanded the surrender of the man. The ' farmer detiied that he was couceallug anyone, but aftorwards led the ofllcor to a charcoal pit, where M'Nulty had hidden himself. The oflloer handcuffed him drove back to the railroad Btation, and at midnight on Saturday ar rived with his prisoner In Jersey City. M'Nulty's leap cost him ouly a slight scratch on his arm. Robbery of a Grave. A Syracuse special, letter of 9th Inst, says : This morning a farmer named Rufus Q. Barnard, living at Warner's, in this county, came to this city for the purposo of invoking'the aid of tho police in finding the remains of his brother, which had been resurrected from a grave in the burying ground attached to the County Poor-house on Onondaga Hill. On Thursday laBt Rufus 1. Barnard, a brother, and an undertaker, preceded to Onondaga Hill to dtsluter the body aud convey it to Warner's for burial in the family lot at that place. The unmarked grave was pointed out ; but what was their consternation on exeavating it to And that the coITln was tenantless. The lid board had been broken off at the centre and the remains removed by drawing thorn up through the opening made in the centre at the head, a hook and rope probably be ing used for the purpose. Nothing re mained but the Bhroud, the suit and the stockings, which had been tossed back into the colli n and the grave closed. There was not the remotest doubt of what had become of the body. It bad beeu removed, probably for medical dissec tion. Chief of Police Harvey, having beard the story, resolved to visit the medi cal college, one of the departments of Syracuso University. No hindrance was offered to the officer, who, upon arriving at the college, proceoded at once up stairs and into the dissecting room, where three or four students were found apparently at work with the scalpel. Upon a slab in the middle of the dimly lighted room lay the nude figure of a man. The dissecting knife had been applied to the cheek and also to the neck, but the face was still lifelike and comparatively natural. The brother of the deceased, Rufus Barnard, easily recognized the re mains. Tbey were this afternoon removed by an undertaker on Mr. Barnard's onier. Dies at Hit Post. The Indianapolis News says :-W. P. McYoy, a freight conductor on the I. B. and W. road had a dog killed yesterday that had seemingly human intelligence, and lost its life in the disoharge of its du ties. At Crawfordsville McVey had re ceived orders to out off six cars at Wayne town, and started the dog over the train from the caboose to the engine with a copy of the message for the engineer. The wind was blowing heavily at the time, the train running at a high rate of speed, and the dog, in endeavoring to Jump the space be tween two cars, missed bis footing, fell un der the train and was out to pieces by the ten cars that passed over his body. The dog was still quite young, but would carry messages, signal trains with either the flag or lantern, was always on the alert, hunt log tramps when the train was not in mo tion, and sat in the " cupola " of the ca boose while in motion, and kept a watch ful eye over things while the train men slept. The dog's name was "Railroad Noble." aud he was a great favorite on the entire line. i tST A 'Fort Bentou, Iowa, Justice who was called npon to marry a couple, ran off with the girl and married ber himself, leaving the lover in bis office to look over law books and spit on the stove. MYSTERY IN MECHANICS. T1IK Boston Journal ttf Commerce Justly observes that there is a class of mechanics who ell'eot great mystery about their work, and appear to Imagine they can convey tho Im pression thalAhere Is something occult or hidden In the prooess they use and the materials they employ.' Inventors are peculiarly sensitive about making known what they Intend to do or the way they Intend to do It, as though the world stood agape, ready to wonder and admire as soon as the letters patent were issued. Perpetual motion mongers were Justified tn keeping secret their experi ments they usually kept secret the re sult. But In nine cases out of ten the Inventor could obtain the money as sistance he requires simply by trusting his proposed Improvements in detail to Judicious friends, and he might with snfety and advantage frequently, take a brother mechanic Into his confidence. A short time ago a carpenter, In ns fisting to move some heavy machinery, had occasion to go Into a room where the Bolderlng of preserving cans was be ing done. He wanted to bore a hole through the floor through which to pass an eyebolt. He was refused admlsHlon until he solemnly promised not to notice the work which, with some handy ap pliances, was performed very rapidly. A visitor to a white lead manufactory was refused admission to a room where the pig load was cast into sheets pre vious to being acted on by the acids. Yet there was absolutely no secret In it. The melted lead was simply thrown Into small quantities on a sort of shovel of sheet Iron, where it congealed to a thin film. The worsted braid used largely for the trimming of ladles' dresses a few years ago is as smooth as Bilk, without fuzzlness, although the yarn is full of projecting fuzz. A certain company kept Its process a great secret, but an ex -amlnatlon of their braid under the mi croscope showed it was simply singed. Borne temperers of steel profess a great mystery lu the preparation of their hardening pickle, a secret as patent as though described on a page. There are very few manipulations or manufacturing processes which are tru ly secrets, and in many of these cases the secret consists in the quality of the material used, a material perhaps not readily obtainable otherwheres. If a se cret involves much mental calculation or expertness of handling a chance vis itor must have rare observing faculties if he can carry it away with him and reproduce it at will from his memory. The laws of the science of mechanics are open to all investigators, and what one man has learned of them may be learned by another man. It is absurd and ridiculous pretension generally that assumes that one man knows alone what many are anxious to learn, that the finished article carries no suggestion of the processes through which it has passed, and that on one man's will and life depends the success of some im portant manufacture. A Two Dollar and a-half Christian. THEIIE are a great many people, in their religion, that remind me of " Uncle Phil," a pious old darky of the old times in Texas. Well, Phil was a fervent Christian, with a great gift of prayer. He attended all the Saturday night prayer-meetings on the neighboring plantations and could pray louder aud longer than any of the brethren. But Phil had one weakness, he dearly loved money, and, different from negroes generally, loved to hoard It. Nearby us lived a man who, not troubled by any scruples, would pay Phil a- dollar to work In his fields on Sunday, One Sunday night Phil came home after dark. I accosted him with , "Where have you been, Phil V" " Oh, Jest knocking about, manga." "You have been working for Mil ler." " Well, you see, massa, the old fellow is In weeds and lie jest showed me a silver dollar and I jest couldn't stand it." " Ain't you afraid the devil will get you for breaking the (Sabbath V" Phil scratched his head a minute and said : " I guess the Lord'U 'souse me, mas sa." " No. He says 'remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.' " Phil went off looking pretty sober, and It was not long before I heard his voice lu fervent prayer back of the barn, so I thought I would slip down near enough to bear. "Oh, Lord!" I heard him say, "I have this day ripped and teared, cussed and sweared at them confounded oxen of Miller's and Jest broke the Sabbath day. Oh,' Lord, please forgive me; please forgive me, for you knows I'se nothing but a miserable heathen any how. If you'll Jest forgive me this time I'll never do it again as long as I live, 'cepten he gives me two dollars and a half a day," At this point I was obliged to retreat, but I am thinking that poor Uncle Phil isn't the only two-dollar-and-a-half Christian lu this world. The Wing Fools of Gotham. There Is In Nottinghamshire, En gland, about a mile south of the village of Qolham.an eminence whereon stands a bush known as the " Cuckoo Bush," and with It the following strange legend Is connected. The bush, however, does not claim to be original one, but was planted on Its site as a memorial. The English monarch King John, as the .story goes was marching towards Not tingham, aud Intended to pass through Gotham meadow. The villagers be licved that the ground over which a king passed became forever afterwards a publlo road, and not being minded to part with their meadow so cheaply, by some means or other they prevented the king from passing that way. Incensed at their proceedings, he sent soon after to Inquire the reason of their rudeness and Incivility, doubtless Intending to punish them by fine or otherwise. When they heard of the approach of the messengers they were as anxious to es cape the consequences of the monarch's displeasure as they had been to save their meadow. What time they had for deliberation, or what counsels they took we are not told, but. when the king's servants arrived, they found some of the inhabitants endeavoripg to drown on eel In the pond, some dragging their carts and wngons to the top f a barn to shade a woods from the sun's rays, some tum bling cheeses down a hill in the expecta tion that they would find their way to Nottingham market, and some employ ed In hedging in a cuckoo that had perched upon a bush. In short, they were all employed in such a manner as to convince the king's officers that they were a village of fools, and consequent ly unworthy of his Majesty's notice. They of course, having outwitted the king, imagined that' they were wise. Hence arose the saying, " The wise fools of Gotham." Wanted to Get In. AT 11 o'clock the other night a Detroit policeman came upon a man pound ing vigorously on the door of a dwelling house, and he asked what he wanted there. The pounder was pretty well set tip. He descended the steps, went close up to the officer and softly whispered in his ear: " It's my my own abode, and I w-want to get In." " But why don't you call out V" asked the blue-coat. "B-because I don't want to g glve myself away. I want to get Into the house b-before the Jawing commences. I want my wife to think It's s-somebody else." " Well, go ahead, but don't arouse the neighbors." The officer sauntered on, but in about ten minutes he encountered the tipsy citizon on the other side of the block. The man was thoroughly drenched with cold water, and had lost his hat. "Hello!. didn't you get iu V" "N-not quite." " Couldn't awaken your'wlfe, eh ?" "The t-trouble was," whispered the man, as a big shiver galloped over him, "the t-trouble was that she was awake a-all the t-tlme." , "And she deluged you from a second story window 1"' " I-Im not 'zactly clear as to whether It was a thunder-shower or only a pitch er of W-water, and I thought I'd h-hunt you up an-aud ask you if th-thunder-showers ever come in the night, and if lightning ev-ever knocks a per-perfect gentleman o-off his own doorsteps V" Too Much "Tick." A country schoolmaster once told his pupils to eay "tick" when they came to a comma in reading; "tick, tick" when they should come to a semicolon ; " tick, tick, tick" for a colon, and tick, tick, tick, tick" for a period, or full point. The parish minister having sent word that he would visit the school the next day, the teacher told the pupils to leave out the "ticks" in reading, but to think of them all the same. Now it so hap pened, that the first boy called up by the minister had beeu absent the pre ceding day, and In the hurry the master had forgotten to give him his iristruc tions how to read. The minister asked the boy to read a chapter in the Old Testament, which he pointed out The boy complied, and in his best accent began "And the Lord spake unto Moaes, saying tick, speak unto the children of Israel, saying tick tick tick, and thus sbalt thou say unto them, tick tick tick tick." This unfortunate exhi bition acted like a shower bath on the poor uiaater, while the minister and bia friends almost died of laughter. , " Tbey cannot all lie," was the obser vation of one while reading the endless testimonials to " Dr. Lindsey's Blood Searcher." Ills infallible. SUNDAY REALI1T3. THE QUEEN OF MADAGASCAR. Ilanovalana, Queen of Madagascar, Is, a lady of color, of whom not enough Is known, notwithstanding the exalted position she occupies. She has sat on a throne for the past eleven years. Her Majesty Is a Christian and encourages ChrlBtlanlty there are consecrated Bishops In her Kingdom ; slavery Is pro hibited there, and a treaty with Great Brltlan has been signed. The truth is, the Queen is a good woman, and thin silence Is really a tribute to her worth. She has preferred quietly to " do her duly In that state of life unto which it has pleased God to call her." Nor Is she to be pitied. This, after all, Is the fortune of the most happy and honora ble. But her lost act merits publicity In Europe. She has Issued a proclamation to the people of Ibonla and Imerlna, congratulating them on the spread of the gospel, and assuring them that rich fruits must come from the knowledge of God. At the same time, she urges them to aid in extending education by send ing their children In large numbers to the schools she has provided. " The in struction they get there," she says, "will be of use even to their parents ; they can keep tally of the cattle, cast up accounts, and take care of property. Educate yourselves," she continues, and you will be sure to advance In life." The education she means is a practical education suited to their position ; the method she uses to recommend It is per suasion. One Drop of Ink. . "I don't fcee why you won't let me play with Will Hunt," pouted Walter Kirk, "I know he does not always mind his mother, and smokes clgars,and once in awhile swears just a little ; but I have been brought up better than that. He won't hurt me, and I should think you could trust me. Perhaps I can do him some good." "Walter," said his mother, "take this glass of pure, cold water, and put Just one drop 6f ink Into it." " Oh, . mother, who would have .1 i , i ,.i . , , , uioiiKuioue urun wouiu uiuckcu a Kiasp so!" . . if Voo (4 lin o olinn nml 41m -v m r f 4 lio T It a f tin f nna rlvnn rt ilco ts In nnrl roatiro Ira liomitv " 1 rl Kirk. " Why, mother, you are laugl me. One drop, or a dozen, oq won't do that." "No, my son; and, therefore not allow one drop of Will Hun! nature to mingle with your training, many drops- of whlcf make no impression on him." Tempted By Degrees. John Newton says Satan seldom comes to christians witlt great tempta tion, or with a temptation to commit ft great sin. You bring a green log and a candle together and they are very safe neighbors; but bring a few shavings and set them alight, and then bring a few small sticks and let them take fire, and the log be In the midst of them, and you will soon get rid of your log. And so it is with little sins. You will be startled with the idea of committing great, iu, uuu bu iuo uevu oriugs you a little temptation, and leaves you to in dulge yourself. "There is Do harm In this ;" " no great peril In that ;" and bo V .kA- IIUU ,.11 .... t I , vj mcBc nine uuipo we are urab ensuy lighted up, and at last the green log is burned. Watch and pray that ye enter not Into temptation. Will You dolt? ' A drunkard at Battle Hill, "Kansas, resolved to reform or die. Putting some deadly polso'n into a glass with whiskey, he locked himself into a room with the mixture. His plan was to conquer his craving for alcohol If possible, and, if his appetite overpowered him kill him self with the drink that satisfied it. He was alone with the poison for six hoursv and then he drank It. His life was saved however, by the timely efforts of a physician, and he was sent to an asy lum for Inebriates. And now young man if you wish to encourage an appe tite that will be strong enough to lead you to death, you have only to com mence as a moderate drinfcer. Will you doity Maryland Forbids Swearing. On February 20th the Senateof Mary land passed a bill, which had previously passed the House, to punish by fine and Imprisonment in jail, at the discretion of the court, any person who shall, by loud and unseemly noises, create dis turbance in any neighborhood in any city or town, or who shall profanely curse and swear or use obscene language on or near any street or highway within the bearing of any person passing. Should the Govenor sign the bill, anil the law be enforced against swearing, a local paper says a number of new jalU I will be required.
