The Mailing of a Lettor.
Tbo Newbury (Mann.,) lfcrald relate
(ho following atory of the mailing of a
letter which many persons, in part At
least will take to themselves. Last Satur
day night ft Newbury port gentleman, com
lug to thla city, was risked by a follow
passenger if he would be kind enough to
drop a lottM' in a box when he arrived in
town. Of course, he willingly agreed to
do do, took the letter and placid It In a
pocket. On Tuesday morning he put hi
hand into that pocket and brought to light
the missive, lie had returned to New
buryport and forgotten his errand. Wish
ing in part to atone he carried it to the
depot aud gave it to the baggage matter
with the request that the latter would
baud it to some Boston-bound passenger, ,
that it might be forwarded. The baggage
master took it and banded it to the first
man going to Uoston whom he met, a
perfect stranger. This gentleman read
the superscription, and looked surprised,
lie tried to smile, but was dumbfounded.
At Inst, however, he said : "Why I gave
this letter myself to a gentleman on the
train Inst Haturday night to post. How
on earth came you by it !'" The explana
tion was glveu, when he remarked that
the letter bad a history. It was written
last week on Thursday by a lady and giv
en to a gentleman with the request that he
would post it in Boston, lie courteously
acquiesced, put it in his pocket and car
tied it till Saturday morning, lie then
turned it over to the narrator of the story
who carried it till evening, and, as he was
not then going to Boston, turned it over to
No. 1 of our tale, with the results above
described. That young lady anxiously
watches the mails, in blissful ignorance of
iter letter's wanderings.
Saved by Sawdust.
The Philadelphia Jiecord says :
Tbo utility of a pair of patent sawdust
calves was strikingly illustrated on Sat
urday. Shortly after four o'clock iu the
afternoon a mad cur, pursued by two per
spiring policemen, dashed into Eighth
street from Walnut aud caused auch a
flutter among the petticoats as that local
ity has seldom witnessed. Among the
feminity that was flouncing along was
a nymph who flings ber shapely leg be
fore the footlights of the Grand Central
theatre. This female could not faoe a
rabid caulue, so she buudled up ber petti
coats and made a dash with others for
safety. Her legs which bad served her so
well before, did not go back on her this
time, (or the mad dog, probably attracted
by the development below the knee, drove
his poisonous fangs into her stocking and
went bowling on. The ballet dancer, more
dead than alive, was dragged into a drug
store, where an eager and anxious crowd
of men carefully examined her leg.
Their fears were allayed, however, when
the discovery was made that the canine
Lad only destroyed the sawdust padding
which the young lady had tied to a lean
shank to give it roundness and attractive
ness. The eager, anxious and solicitous
men departed much sadder and a heap
An Easter Surprise,
IIazleton, Pa.,. April 10. Yesterday
there came to town a man and wife from
Hollywood Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Thomas.
The wife is about 82 years old, and has
during ber wedded life given birth to five
children, singly. They came to do Bbop
ping, and while tbey were making pur
chases the woman complained of feeling
unwell. The husband said they would
conclude their purchases aud then ride
home. While standing at a store counter
n hour or more later Mrs, Thomas was
suddenly taken ill and before aid could be
given gave birth to two babes. She was
immediately cared for and two doctors
summoned. They bad barely arrived
when two more babes were ushered into
4be world. All were still-born. The moth
er is doing well.
A Strange Case.
A few days ago at Waterton, N. Y.,
Louis Jarvis, a sober and industrious man
was called to his door at twelve o'clock at
night by two meu named Cummings and
Orining, both of whom were Intoxicated.
They had Jarvis' dinner pail in their pos
session and demanded that he come out
and drink. Jarvis stepped out and indulg
ed in a small portion. He was gone but a
few moments when he staggered Into the
room aud fell into a ' stupor. The physi
cians think be was drugged. Jarvis died
next morning. The dinner pail with part
-of its contents has been secured and are
being analyzed. Both men were arrested.
A Soared Youth.
Recently a young man named Flinch
baugb, while driving from York to his
borne, some miles distant, discovered the
buggy to be on fire. Losing bis presence
of mind he lashed the horse to the top of
bis speed and went flying; down the road
yelling fire. When stopped by a party
of men, the top of the buggy bad been
burned oft', the box badly scorched and
the young man's hands burned. A spark
from a cigar oaused the Are.
