A Swell's plunder.
Swells come in great variety in Bos- j
ton.   There are all sorts and conditions
Of them, but the swell that interests an ■
unsympathetic anti-swell moro than any
other is he who blunders in the darksome paths of etiquette.   A fiendish joy !
is not unnatural when a swell commits a :
betiso without knowing it.   Not many
i evenings since a leading light, a swell,
who is so afraid of being seen in tlie i
: wrong drawing rooms he refuses to go
anywhere, Ventured out into the radiance
■ ol a select circle.   Ho is a handsome
j swell, big, well groomed, of literary hab-
I Its, and, were he not  much married,
would belong to tho rank and file of
mashers.   At all events, one fair stran-
i ger present was much overcome by his
1 many charms and gracefully submitted
j to being "mashed" on this particular oc-
! caslou.
Everything was progressing favorably.
1 Thu swell was swelling with content at
his conquest, tho lady was enjoying a
| view of the immaculate splendor of his
shirt front and the perfect fit of the low
cut moiro waistcoat, when refreshments
wero passed, and conversation for a mo-
! ment gavo wny to ice cream.   Presently
i a wicked littlo macaroon fell from the
: lady's plate to the floor.   The swell gallantly stooped—to brush it aside?   Not •
1 bit.   He carefully picked it up and deposited  it on   his  companion's  plate.
Alack-a-dayl   How   tho magnetic current,  which   had   flowed  so  fast  and
strong before, chilled in that fair lady's
breast at this solecism, can only be appreciated by tho author of a book of etiquette.   In her eyes and In the wandering eyes of others, this swell's reputation
had gone.    To her, at least, lie is no
longer a swell, and if he stays away from
her parties forevermore, she will never
reinstate him In the upper tier of the.
four hundred.—Boston Herald.

from his brother disappeared. The I
nvestigation has progresseal far enough
o show that Graham's speculations may
reach $75,000, not counting the possibilities of a number of country bonds which
he may have disposed of in the east.
During the investigation it became apparent that the treasurer was very
negligent of bis duties in paving such
sums without investigation or was in collusion with Oraham. The committee on
Thursday night decided it was the li tter
and just after midnight C, P. Coleman,
county treasurer, was arrested, charced
with the embezzlement of 113,000. He
was released on a *25.00J bond. It is
quite certain thnt others are guilty of being cognisant of what was going ou and
will be arrested. A competent authority
saial no one will be surprised if. when the
bottom is reached it is fonnd that the
county has been robbed of $260,000. The
Sir Julian Paacufote Sailed for England ; treasurer's office is closed and no taxes
; are being received or bills paid, Graham
has been one of the most popular men in
this section of the state and his plentiful
i supply of money was accounted for by
the success of patent medicines he extensively advertised, and whloh lie claimed
, was making his fortune.

'The time ha= not yet arrived for detail
ing the memorable experience of Parnell for the last ta\o years. I believe
that experience to be unparalleled iu the
history of British statesmen in parliament "for the past two a'entiiries. I consider Parnellites to be, in the best sense,
Conservative, and a restorative force of
great value to the peace of Ireland and
the honor of England, while the tyranny
of the government hac deepened the aversion of Ireland.

A Notable Athlete.
As a horseman, from beginning to end
of his vigorous life, Washington had no
peer. Like nil Virginia boys he took to
the saddle as a duck takes to water.
Once astride his steed, it was all but
impossible to dislodge him. Prom the
day when as a lad he first rode to hounds
after old Lord Fairfax, of Qreenway
Court, across tho county named for that
worthy nobleman, he was a skilled and
dashing fox hunter. In the army, when
on horseback, riding down the line,
cheered to the echo by the soldiers, who
believed, with a superstition worthy of
tho ancients, that here was a being born
to lead them, he was physically tho most
Imposing figure present. In person,
Washington showed in maturity the
fruits of the lifetime he had given to
what athletes nowadays call "training."
His habits at all times were those exacted of a "crew" or "team" of modern
days before the occasions when those
heroes appear in public to fill with despair or exultation the bosoms of their
friends. From thc Indians of the Shenandoah wilderness, among whom he spent
weeks during his first surveying tour, he
learned the swift, elastic tread that distinguished him in walking. His powers
of endurance were worthy of hia extraordinary physical strength, though it
must bo said he had few illnesses to test
his constitution, and, Indeed, was rarely
ailing.—St. Nicholas for March.
Industrial Insurance.
Industrial insurance brings an indemnity against loss by death to those who
most need it. Among the working
classes a man's labor is his only source
of income and gives his life its only value
in an insurable sense to his dependents.
The necessity of providing against loss
by death is greater among the poor than
with thoso who have wealth, much or
little, to leave to their families.
Thefact has been recognized in Germany, where insurance has been made
compulsory. Small sums, reckoned according to the weekly wage, ore taken
from tho pay of the worker by the employer and paid to tho government.
These sums provide for a sick benefit and
an insurance against old age and infirmity. In case of illness thirteen weeks
of free medical attendance and a money
allowance equal to one-half tho wages
are allowed. At death an amount equal
to twenty times the local daily wages of
an ordinary day laborer is paid to tbe
survivors. In old age and infirmity a
yearly stipend is paid. The employers
contribute equally to an accident fund
wbich provides for total or part disability
or death. The state, the employers and
tho employed contribute equally to the
old age and Infirm pension fund. Tbe
sick fund is maintained by the employes.

And   Is   Married   to   a   Former   Rejected
Lover—Given Away by Her Husband.
One of the streets of Florence Is known as
Via del Mortl, tbo streot of the dead. Many
year3 ago a beautiful Italian princess was
'•ought In marriage bv two nobles, Prince
3oudi and Count Aldoorandi, whose palaces
ctand at either end of tlie short and narrow
rtreet. The prince was successful In his suit,
jut in less than a year the beautiful young
woman died, and her body was placed in the
crypt beneath the cathedral, the coffin and
tho iron door of tho vault being left open, as
is still tbo custom in Tuscany, so that if the
person thought dead comes to life he may escape being buried alive. In tbe middle of
the night after the funeral Prince Goudi was
startled by a knock at the outer door. The
porter opened the door and a white figure
gropeal its way in.
The porter fell in a swoon, and the prince
rushed to a chapel in the palace and fell
praying before the altar, beseeching protection against liis dead avife's ghost. For days
all Florenco rang with the story of how
Prince Qoudi was haunted by his wife's ghost,
and tho excitement gradually died away.
When the porter swooned and tho prince
fled to his altar, tho white figure slipped out
of the house and avent to that of her old
suitor, Count Aldobrandi. There she knocked
feebly, but the porter was asleep, and the
master of the house came to open the door.
The princess fell at his feet, and ho lifted
her up and called upon the women of his
household to care for her. After a week had
passed, no one knowing the facts, tho count
applied to the patriarch of tho cathedral,
and asked: "Holy father, if a woman is de
clared dead and receives the sacred office oi
the church, returns to life, is repulsed by her
husband, is but received and taken care of
by a friend of her living days, who may
claim heri"
Tho venerable priest said the question was
so weighty that tho pope must answer it, and
ho repbed that tbe ono who had rescued her
could claim ber. It was soon announced that
the Count Aldobrandi would wed a noble lady
loos a stranger In Fierenzo, and he requested
his friend Goudi to givo away the bride, her
parents not being present. At the appointed
day, before tho altar of a chapel In the
duomo, the marriage took place. Tbe question was asked: "Who gives this woman to
bo the wifo of this mani" Prince Goudi
stepped forward, but not until he had taken
ber hand did he know that he was bestowing
his own bride upon another. But bis knowledge came too late. For years Count Aldo
brandi and his wife lived happily together.
snd at this late day a descendant of Prince
Goudi tells the story ns a historical fact.-

Lebanon. O., July 20.—This place has

I tor Graham had overdrawn his account

j prise and no alarm, aB it was supposed

HONORING PARNELL.
Edinburgh, July 20. — An immense
gathering assembled on the Corn Exchange building to-night in honor of Mr.
Parnell. The edifice was crowded to
overflowing, and the greatest enthusiasm
prevailed, Lord Aberdeen presided. Parnell was repeatedly cheered, the immense audience rising to its leet and yelling like mad. Deputations from all the
Liberal societies of Scotland presented
him with addresses, and a letter from
Gladstone was read hy Lord Aberdeen,
in which the great Liberal lender said i
Tha Day for Doctors.
"Which do you sapp-»as is the busiest day
In tbe week for a physician. I mean by that
the day on which one gets the most new
cases!" asked a disciple of -Escuhpius of a
visitoryesterday afternoon while both were
sitting in the doctor's cozy little office on tht
south side.
"I don't know," was the reply, "but 1
thought the doctors' business wss very
uncertain; In fact 1 never heard that people
aro more apt to become sick on one day in the
week than on another."
"Well, then, listen to me, and I will give
you the benefit of tbe experience which 1
have had during the last thirty years. It
bas been the result of raj observation that
tbe largest number of people tako sick ou a
Monday. Not bocausaa it is a particularly unlucky day, nor because that day is an enemy
to human health and life, but for this reason:
Of course you know that on Sunday tho regular routine kind of existence of every day
life receives a change. The man who usually goes dowu town lo bis oflice stays at
borne on that day, the worklngman anal laborer, who bavo been busily occupied aluriug
the week either at ttie mill, glass bouse or
other places, do not, us a rule, work either.
Now tho mere interruption of tbo muscular
movement would probably not have any bad
effect upon anybody were it not for one
thing, the change of diet.
"The loving, thoughtful   housewife, who
knows that Sunday ia tho only day on which
sho can hnvo all those thut aro dearest to her
around tbo dinner table, always exerts her
culinary abilities more than usual, and sha'
tries to make something out of tho common
—something nicer nnd better to put beforo
i them to eat.   Tbo oonseqasnes is that she
\ makes her cookery rlohor, aud sbe throws in
a few knickknacks hero luul there that taste
I very well, but ns a rule thoso things play
havoc with  a person's aligestiou, especially
avhen tho stomach is nob used to tbem.
"Now, tbnt is the aaholo secret. It is a
well knowu fuct tba! most diseases arise from
a disorder of tho digestive organs, and hence
you havo tho explaiiiiiiun why morepooplo
do not get up on Monday morning as well
and as bright as on any other day."—Pittsburg Dispatch.
Corsets nf Lontlior.
Quite a column bas beeu devoted in tho
leading French papers to tho news that a
fresh material hns been discovered for—corsets.   One would not expect English influence to assert itself iu so delicate a department.   But leather corsets are to be traced
remotely to Iho influence of tho insulars.
French ladies havo takeu up tennis (In a very
dainty way) aud croquet.   They even mention cricket ns within feminine possibilities,
though probably thoy only mean the less active gamo that is played with hoops and mallets.   However, the   Parisian corsetier has
seen his opportunity.    For such robust exercise tbe ordinary fabric is quite insufficient.
j A concession is to bo made to English demands. Thero is to bo givo and take. French
' girls aro to play tennis, and English girls are
to wonr leather corsets.   The change  will
' probably bo greater for tbo French than for
tho English, though neither innovation is
; much more than a revival.   In the days of
I Henry. V— if Shakespeare is any authority—-
tho Parisians played a kind of tennis, aud
! certainly tn tbo days of Cromwo.l, if Eng-
j lish girls did not  wear   kid corsets, tbeir
I fathers put on leather yerkins.—Pall Mall

London, July 20.—The activity at
present being displayed hy the various
army and navy departments ot the Central European powers and the Balkan
States, has again brought lorward the
subject of "Balkan Federation" so dear
to political idealists. Sundry newspaper
paragraphs appear from day to day regarding the alleged alliance between Servia and Greece. Indeed to their friends,
at a distance, nothing seems more natural
and feasible than that the different
States of the Balkan peninsula should
form a league for common defence. In
the present condition of national relatives it is well nigh impossible for the Slavonic elements of the peninsula to
unite for a common object. That Slav
and Greek and Roumanian should form
a league among themselves is ahout ns
probable as a Franco-German alliance.
As to the attitude of the Greek government on this subject, the following information from the fountain-head ought
to satisfy the most skeptical regarding the
matter. In a recent conversation with
your correspondent who ventured to remark what a pity it was that the nearer
one approached the scene of action the
more impracticable appeared any form of
a working agreement among the Balkan
States, M. Trikopsis, a member of the
Grecian parliament, said: "I do not even
sec that it is a pity to form a federation.
There must be something to
gain by it; but what they
gain except from one another, the
Greeks and Bulgarians must fight out
in Macedonia sooner or later. Greece,"
continued M. Trikopsis, "is nt present
the only power in the Balkan peninsula
capable of pursuing an independent
course. Roumania is asking what will
become oi her in the event ol another
great wa-. Servia, since the occupation
of Bosnia, is in the grip of Austria. Why
should we compromise our liberty of
action by allying ourselves with states
that are bound dowu hand nud foot by
their powerful neighbors ? Our own
position is quite different. Supposing
Austria, for instance, wtre to tell us that
she objected to nny action on our part,
we should simply tell her that we suited
ourselves. The only power that can
really interfere with iis is England, but
the English government will not put itself out to harm us. In 1878 they prevented us from joining against the
Turks, but we were not really ready at
tbe time of the Bulgarian annexation of
Eastern Roumelia. Again, England, interfered in conjunction with other
powers, but even had the powers not intervened we never should have acted.
The whole affair of the blockade was a
diplomatic muddle. I myself was opposed
to action then, as it could not have lieen
effective, and it w as better, therefore, to
bide our own time. But foreign coercion
put the opponents of war who would
otherwise have gained the day by themselves, in a very awkward position."
The conversation then turned on
eventualities, and your correspondent remarked that the prospect of English
intervention on behalf of the Turks was
growing more and more remote. "You
are mistaken," rejoined M. Trikopsis:
"Certainly the English government will
not go out of ita wny to lanal an expedi-
tionniy force, but the naval question is
quite different. Action at sea costs you
nothing. You see the fleet must he
somewhere, and it is as easy for it to be
at the Pireus as at Malta, and besides we
know for a fact that an understanding
exists between the British and Italian
governments respecting the balance of
power in the Mediterranean. I am perfectly aware that it was denied in parliament that such nn agreement existed in
writing, but the very dental was made in
such   terms   as only to corroborate the
(act that for practical purposes an agreement doos actually exist. A verbal understanding it may be, but still an
understanding; of that fact Indeed tt
have other evidence."
When askeal if he thought England
would prevent the Greeks from occupying Crete, M. Trikopsis said: "Although
the former coercive action of England
against Greece was uot hy any means
popular in England, the present English
government wns quite prepared to repeat
the coercive policy against Greece if an
occasion nrose."

Thc muilcs of death's approach arc various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Tlnoat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs inlo the
system and where those germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue .heir ravages they extend to the lungs
producing Consuniptiam and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause

weak-kn 1  udvooacy   aaill    serve  our
purpose.      We   see   what   railway   and
steamboat communication has done for
lhe thriving nnd populous Sound cities.
A town of nearly four thousand inhabitants with only :i narrow strip of  water
between   il   and  the C.  I'. R. terminus
may well feel in some soil aggrieved that
nothing has yel been .lone to  procure  n

Representations Irom the proper quarters,
urged    with    sufficient     volume   and
Strength, would surely soon give us this
much needed daily service;  having got
whicli.  n  last  train  to connect would ut

that this route would   take a little longer
time than tlie proposed railroad by  way
of Saanich to New Westminster, but ibe
difference would not be so very great,
while  the  difference in the cost would
mean the difference between  a   heavy
public burden nnd a aliglil impost,     the     weight     of   which    would

OCCIDENTAL
H
Mis' IA.I.ANEOUS NOTES,
A r'ki i.m writer in an English Review
takes inournpinion an exceedingly .sensible view of the l'ussophohisi feeling existing both in England and India, li is
especially noticeable, ill that a certain
amount of moral courage is required now-
a-ihiys tn own that Great Britain may
after all he wrong in following out the
policy of Lord I'ai.mkiiston in endeavor-
lug tn checkmate the Russian Bear nl all
points of ihe game political. He says:
There are still among us those who say,
"Why should not England be friends
with Russia, and pul an end to all these
heartburnings?" Why not, indeed? It
has been often pointed out here that
there is absolutely no reason on England's
side. We want nothing of Russia's: we'
could even be content to leave her the
districts which she has filched during the
last fifteen years in violation of the;
Khiva understanding. It is no business
of ours if the Germans are willing to let
her retain their Baltic provini'es. if Po- i
land chooses to remain iinila'r her yoke,
[f Persia and Turkey acquiesce in her'
Asiatic encroachments or, ii Rou-
innnia is equally coniplaisniii. The condition of Russia would, indeed, nol be
happy if lhe various European nations
were to rise, like the mysterious visitor
in Hickkn's story of Lyon's Inn, and sav,'
"Mine"; inn we should have nothing to
say directly to it. The sole ami single
condition on which Russia anil Knglaii'l
could and might very well come to an
understanding, which hardly nny possible .
Continental coalition could gainsay or
dissolve, is that Russia should keep her
bands irom picking and stealing ill
future, should acknowledge frankly that'
the North of Asia is her sphere, the South
ours, and should set herself lo cultivate
her already pretty extensive garden, in-'
sienil of trying in remove her neighbors'
landmarks, There is no such thing as
RusBophobin now, in the sense in which
Russophobin is sometimes spoken of,
What is called Russonhobia is simply
the very reasonable care of lhe
householder who sees a person well
known tn the police strolling uiioui his,
present's and looking into his kitchen
win.lows. Let Russia purge and live
cleanly, and every reasonable ISnglish-
man aaill he ready in be the hest of
friends with her.

CO-OPERA Tl VE CONGRESSEH
T.A.I.  TALK.
I AT*
-ESTADLISHKn   IN
Tiik utttnl Co-operative Congress recently held at Norwich (England) has occupied a good deal of attention, more
especially as the question of Co-operation
as applied to lhe labor question has been
much mooted of hite. However nt this
Congress like most others there wus a
good deal of very poor stuff ami silly
bombast talked, as well as some very
ihoughti'ul and eloquent speeches made
by men who have been long recognised
as leaders in this particular walk of Social economics.   We suppose that any
and every Congress possesses the pleasing right ol self-luiiilation, so we do not
consider that any abuse was committed
when Professor Maiishai.i. told the world
lhat he regards Co-operation "as the
typical and most representative prodnot
of the age, because It combines high aspirations with calm and strenuous action,
and because it sets itself to develop the
spontaneous energies of the Individual,
while training bim In collective action by
Ihe aid of collective resources and for the
attainment of collective ends." Therefore, the Co-operative Congress mav innocently meet and listen to Professor
Maiisham. or other gentlemen. It may
exercise the common right of congresses
lo give advice to Government, and we are
not amazed lo hear that the Congress was
surprised   at    Ibe   Sugar    Convention.

"Discounting."
In tho old haggling way of tiade which ;
hsi3, In this country, at least, happily gone
cut for tho most part, and beeu replaced by
the moro honest ono prico system, In which a
dealer puts a fair profit upon his goods and
sticks to that, It waa customary to demand a
great deal more than tho asker hoped to get.
Ono time on the Texas frontier a man camo
Into a camp tidin-r. an old mule.
"How much for tho mulof" asked a bystander.
"Jlst a hundenl dollars," answered tho
rider.
"I'll givo you live dollars," said tho other.
The rider stopped short, as if in amazement, and then slowly dismounted.
"Stronger," said he, "I ain'ta-goin' to letn
little matter of ninety-five dollars stand botween mo and n mulo trade. The mule's

Another story, somewhat of tho samo sort,
is related of an old tenant farmer who, on
paying his rent, told his landlord that ho
wanted somo timber to butid a bouso, and
would be much obliged if ho would glvo him
permission to cut down what would answer
for tho purpose.
"Nol" said tlio landlord, sharply.
"Well, theu, sir," tho farmer went on.
"will you give mo enough to build a barn T'
"No."
"To make a pate, tben.''1
"Yes."
"That's all 1 wanted," said the farmer,
"and more than I expected."—Tonth'B Companion. 	
Philanthropy an- Advertising?
"Do good by stealth und blush to find it
fame" may havo been excellent ndvioo avhon
Mr. Popo wrote, but. it would require reshaping to bring it into harmony with modern requirements. A Yorkshire coal denier who
has beeu doing good by stealth on quite an
extensive scale, now has cause to blush at
finding himself lineal by a polico magistrate.
This philanthropic trailer owns a weighing
machine which gives bis customers twenty-
one-pounds overweight on every hundred
aveight. Some timo ago his attention was
officially drawn to tho fact, and ho received
solemn warning that if ho continued hla sinful benevolence ho would bo summoned. A
weighing machine that gives overweight is as
Illegal as ono that does tho other thing, the
law demanding a perfect adjustment ot balance. Ttiiscoally Samaritan refused to believe, however, tliat his stealthy benefactions
wero punishable, nnd so persisted In adding

Kemcily for tho *"v"hlto Grub.
The uso of benzlno has been found effectual
In Franco in destroying the white grubs (the
larva* of tho May or dor bug), which often
do immense damage, especially In dry sea-
sous, to lawns, strawberry plants, seedling
plants and otlier nursery stock. Holes ore
made In tlio ground infested with tho grubs
with one of tho sharp iron dibbles used sometimes in transplanting small plants, and the
benzine is poured into thorn. Fifty grains of
benzine are used to llio '.quaro yard, and caro
is taken to insert it above tho piano of tho
feeding ground of tho grubs. In nn experiment recently mado by ono of the French
forest officers, and reported nt a meeting of
the National Agricultural society, tho grubs
on twelvo acres wero destroyed at n cost of
only $8.30 per acre.—Now York Telegram.

The American hns uo timo to wear gloves

will carry Ills gloves in ono band whon tho

.Men aro careless, too, aud others havo white,
tapering fingers that they want to show, or
tbey wear big rings that will not lot n glovo

"LITTLE  HORACE"   HOVAN   AND   HIS
NUMEROUS  ROBBERIES.
An Allaiblf, Ueiilleiuauly Felou, Who Would
Sol Harm u House— Hundred, of Thousands nl Dollars Stolen From Banks.
Why  He Cannot  ""efnmi.
i'avo genteelly dressed men walked into tho
"*aople*sSovlngsand Deposit bank, in Denver,
Colo. It was shortly after tho noon hour,
nnd most of tho officials were at dinner. Only
the cashier remained, and ho approached the
wicket window to converse with one of tho
callers, avl,o n Ished to mnke arrangements to
lioconio a depositor.
Suddenly u noiso in tho rear of tho bank
caught the cashier's ear. Ho turned to seo tlio
other stranger nt tho door of tho big open
.vault. Quick ns a flash the official ran to the
safo, seizing, aa iio passed tho counter, a revolver.
Throwing tho cockaial weapon into the faco
of tho robber, Iio mado him put up his hands.
The prisoner quietly submitted to arrest,
while hia companion hastily loft by tho street
door.
U'lion turned over to tho police the mnn
pleaded that it wash's first offense and begged
for mercy. His namo was James -Mctz, and
ho was n merchant, broken down hy reverses
and trouble, wlio fell w hen confronted with
tho opportunity to rob tho bank. His address
and appearance seemed to confirm his story.
Adoilt, heavy mustache and full beard nearly
covered his thin, sallow face. Ho was rather
small and slender of stature. Ono feature of
hisattiie, however, deepened tho suspicions
of tbo polico. Ho woro heavy fell shoes, but
theu ho urged lhat he was a consumptive,
and they wero to protect bis feet from dampness.
ir WAB "littj.b uoiiAci:.'
Four days later Robert and William Plait-
erton, the celebrated detectives, happened to
stop over in Denver. The authorities had as
yet been bafileal in discovering tbe identity of
"Mr. Metz," und decided to call on those
chiefs of thief takers.
"Littlo Horace I" exclaimed Bob Puikertou
assoon as ho dapped liis eyes on the prisoner.
Metz was silent for a moment, and then
frankly admitted ho was none otlier than
Horace Hovan, ono of the most celebrated
and successful bank sneaks the world ever
know.
When reminded of bisnrrcst by Mr. Pinker-
ton for the robbery of tho Middletown (Conn.)
bank in 1679, out of which bo secured $100,-
000 in bonds, Littlo Horace admitted tbat
such was tbo fact.
Talking with Detectivo Puikertou, Hovan
gave a brief sketch of bis career, and It Is certainly a most interesting account of tho life
of a criminal.
Little Horaco has been associated with tho
best bank sneaks in tho country, and his lines
have frequently tlirown him with other noted
crooks whoso specialties differed from his. In
appearance bo is very gentlemanly looking,
of slender build nnd of genteel appearance
and dress. Ho ia tho last man whom any one
would suspect of being a dangerous criminal.
He Is possessed of the greatest norvo of any
man in the world, and, up to eight or ten
years ago, was most successful. Unlike most
professional criminals, ho ls very steady in
bis habits-, outsidoof associatiug with thorn hi
his profession ho never associates with them,
nor resorts lo places frequentcal by criminals.
Although Iio lias boon engaged for a number
of years as n professional criminal, ho is very
Uttlo kuowu to polico otliciula. Ho is domestic
iu Ills habits., always selects u quiot residence,
and stops around homo. Ho is in uo way a
desperate criminal, and when cornered he
will endeavor to sneak or run away. Ho
has nover been known to carry weapons of
any kind, and ho not ouly abhors such things,
but will even refuse to work with any one
whom ho thinks would attempt to do any one
an injury. In polico circles this is considered
ono of iho host traits of his character. He
never allows any ono to visit himself or his
family, and never lots nny one know whero
ho Uvea.
ONCE A THU*'" ALWAYS A TlID**".
bi 1870, iu company with a man who has
j siuco reformed, aud who la now living hon-
i estly, and Big Eal Ulce, Littlo Horaco stolo
j $20,000 from u Halifax (N. S.) bank.   Hovan
I and tho man beforo mentioned were arrested,
but Rico got awuy with tho money.   Both
mon were released, ns tho money was returned to tho bunk.   In 187S Hovan was convicted for a sneak job in Pittsburg and sentenced to two years and eleven months in tho
Western penitentiary at Allogbeny City. He
fot away, and Robert Plnkerton arrested
im shortly afterward for the robbery of a
vault of tbo Middlotowu (Conn.) bank, where
he secured over 8100,000 tn government, state
I and county bontls,   Tho bonds wero returned
i and he was released.   In 18S1 bo was arrested
| in Philadelphia with Frank Buck for the lar-
! ceny of SIO.IBO in securities from a broker's
i safo In that city.   Ho was convicted of burglary and sentenced to three yeara In the
' Eastern penitentiary.   Ho was pardoned out
j In 1883 on conalitlon that he would go to
Washington and testify against somo officials
wbo wero on trial.   Ho agreed to do so on
condition that an old case against him in
Charleston, S. C, should be settled, and the
authorities agreed to his terms.   He gavo his
testimony, which was not credited by the
jury, nnd In 18tyl  he  waa discharged.   A
month after his release ho and Buck Taylor
were arrested iu Boston, but asnothing could
bo proved against him he was simply ordered
out of tho city.
in the fall ot 1SS5 bo was detected in abstracting a package of bank notes from a
safo in nn English banker's office and was
sentenced to threo years' Imprisonment.
After ho had served his timo abroad be returned to this country via Canada, aud come
to Chicago aud lived for n whllo at tho Tro-
mont house. Ho then loft, and went went by
way of Kansas City.
The crook then summarized his career as ho
chatted with the dotoctivo: "Why don't you
reform, os I once advised yon t" asked tho do
tectlvc.
"I woulal ouly bo too willing to do so if any
ono would givo mo employment tliat my
health would stand, but whoro could u man
like me get work! You onco advlsc.1 me to
mako an honest living und 1 determined to
accept your adrico. I went to>acit.y to settle
down and got employment. A detectivo camo
aiui..;, Identified ino nud informed tho police.
Although iny family offcrod a bond for my
good behavior, thoy were afraid to let mo livo
there. If they had let mo nlono I'll been an
honest man toalay. I had a family to support
and hoal to do something, Tho detectives
bunted mo ilown so that 1 could get no employment. There's nothing in a criminal's
career but misery for himself and family. 1
knoav that bettor than any one. No matter
what tie gets, be is a pauper in tho entl. It ia
from one prison to another; no sooner out
than back again. I know not a single man of
my associates, all of whom hnvo handled
thousands, that is in a position of comfort today. If I could got honest employment 1
would be only too glad to tako lt. My health
Is broken down from imprisonment, and I

llenellts of Co-Operative Banking.
Speaking of the benefits of the co-operative
bank system, one who is familiar with its
! workings and results says: "The savings of
the mechanic nnd laboring man are necessarily limited, and, In the ordinary way of
laying by a littlo now and then, tbey may get
discouraged on account of tbe length of time
necessary to accumulate sufficient to accomplish their desires, and aro very likely to give
up in despair when year after year passes and
they still see the object far oft But with tho
assistance rendered by the union of indlvld-
• uals exactly in the same condition of life
j with himself, he can command, in tho be-
j ginning of practical life, the means which,
I without this union, would require years of
I toil and self denial; and thon he would oidy
I arrive at tho ideal of his mind when
his capacity for Its enjoyment would
havo passed the meridian, nnd his pathway,
in consequence of yeara of toil, is necessarily
downward. Hero he begins at the end, as it
were, and secures the benefits of years of
saving before ho has mado any accumulation; and In liquidating his engagements
with tho association only returns thereto
what he would hnve to pay a landlord for
rental, whilo feeling that only forn short
time is this necessary, aud then his obligations are ended, renders it a comparatively
easy task; for ho is working to the ond he
wishes to attain, and there is positive, moagl
certainty that he will and can reach it, How
much better, then, for every man who is
within reach of these great and good institutions to connect himself therewith and secure
hia own independence, and thus feel conscious that his energies have not been expended in producing an income for tho support of another to the exclusion of hia own
person nnd family."—Boston Herald.

THE   WISDOM   OF   THE   MULE.
Evidence af the Sagacity of His Cottc
riantittlon Animal.
Working animals, such as horses and mules,
are generally kept on a cottou plantation ia
»large open pen. In the center there is »
feed shed, containing a trough for corn and r.
rafter for fodder overhead Stock is fed
only twice a day, noon and ni^ht. By sun
up on work days the plow hands appear, eact
to catch bis "critter," and the forty or fifty
mules at tbeir sight move in utter confusior
around tbo shed, hiding behind one another.
But how is it on Sundays? There reigns then
an Arcadian peace in tho pen. Each mule is
paired off with liis "chum" (a selective affinity, no aloubti iu an angle of the raU fence
head and luU together. The object is a practical exemplification of tho golden rule. To
enjoy an untroubled siesta, each head secures
Immunity from tho fly pest by a close proximity to ids friend's "perpetual mobile.'
Farm hands may go in and out without producing tho least sign of alarm. But, should
bridlea appear, that disturbs only master's
saddle or carriage horses.
As to the mules, no extra twitch iu tad oi
ear shows tho least suspicion that their owner
j could possibly be the victim of a mistake;
| with eyes drooping and head on a level with
that of hia neighbor's taU, bis somnolent tor*
; por is a picture of trust and  safety.    He
knows- it is Sunday    1 remember well the
amused look of my foreman, Essex, when asking him  for  hia opinion on the subject:
"Why, bi course," said he, "dey knows it's
; Sunday."
I    Pertinent to the above query is tho other:
; Do animals know noontime?   For tho sake of
a lively scene let us somo forenoon go into a
: large field.    Presently we are startled from
; our reverie by an unearthly "Ee-hung, ee-
' hung, ee-hung, hung, hung."   It is the Nes
tor of the four-footers that calls thus: "Time
for refreshments"—a signal simUarly seconded
'■ and approved in succession by forty others.
We look at our timepiece and, sure enough,
i tho large hand is about covering tho smaller.
It is noon.   The mule, however, Is some min-
, utea ahead of time, and there ensues a fearful
contest for the mast n-y between him and the
i driver, which the distant dinner horn only
I ends.
Now, Uow is it that the mule knows noon-
: time?   Does ho rely on the Infallibility of his
! timepiece, that warns him that it needs re-
i winding?   Or bas he noticed his equaUy hungry partner, Snmlio,  who, on reaching the
end of the row, halts a moment, and, turning face  northward,   anxiously  scans   the
shadow at his feet?   Or is the sensitiveness of
his back so delicate that he can discriminate
between oblique and vertical rays?
Wo aro prone to mystify, and because we
are unwilling to grant brute creation the
power of reasoning, we caU their actions that
surprise us "instinct." In the barnyard,
stable and field we never observe this quality of instinct in the young. It is only the
old that become wise by experience.—Scientific American.

They accept invitations from mere boys to
go out to supper after tho performance. You
may say, Well, tbere Is no harm In that No,
there Is not, but tho younsters causo all the
trouble. They think lt smart to go around
lulling their friends on what terms of familiarity they are with such and such a stage
favorite, and by knowing nods and Insinuations la-.'ivo people under false impressions in
regard to the girl's character. If actresses
had any sense they would leave the youngsters alone, for, while the latter mean uo
harm, they think they are doing a smart
trick in parading their intimacy with a foot
light, favorite.—Miss Cora Tennte, of "Th.

Pure American.
Every age, sex and nationality has its own
weakness, whieh is observed and played upon
by the crafty. A certain salesman says that
when ho particularly wishes to dispose of
some article of dress, he states it to be of
French origin.
"These French shoulders are very becoming to you, madam," he exclaims, admiringly, as somo portly dame dons a peculiarly cut
garment. "I don't believe a lady could be
found, out of Paris, who could wear them to
such advantage"
The consequence of such a speech often Is
that the purchaser feels herself to be a worthy
type of Parisian dames, and snaps up the
bargain.
However, humbug of any sort Is likely at
some time to meet with a check. Ono day,
this clever salesman saw a modestly dressed
woman examining somo wraps in his department, and stepping briskly up to her remarked:
"Thirty-five dollars, madam. A new
French design. Tbat plaiting at the back is
the newest invention of a great French
house,"
"Indeed," said the lady, quietly. "That
seems odd.   Are tho garments Imported!"
"No, they aro mado In New York, but as 1
said, tho plaiting which gives them such a
Jaunty look, is copied from a French modal"
"More and more surprising," said the lady.
"It happens that I work In the establishment
where they are made, and I designed that
plaiting myself."—Youth's Companion.
Dacklug nn ti Wheel.
A Yankee sportsman with a very level
head stocked with original Ideas, ls one Chad-
wick, who bas been giving the surviving
ducks of Long Island something to quack
about with saddened surprise. Mr. Chad-
wick's head Is of the kind tbat saves Its possessor's heels. Be fitted ui a bicycle for traveling upon the ice, by placing barbs upon the
periphery of the wheel, and devising out riggers in the form of small steel runners that
steadied the machine, while Its rider waa
using his breech loader with precision and effect When occasion demanded Mr. Chad-
wick would deck his ice bicycle with branches
of evergreen, and therewith pedal silently
and swiftly toward the ducks.
This Birnam wood spectacle being new in
the experience of the birds, tbey gazed at the
sight with surprise unmixed with fear, insomuch that Mr. Chadwick, without tiring his
muscles, could work his will with the fowls
before liim. While other duck hunters were
toiling over rough ice and falling down on
smooth ice, Chadwick and his onewheeled arsenal was speeding among tho open ponds, or
spinning before a stiff breeze, in search of
distant shooting grounds. Duck language
must needs be rich in adjectives in order to
supply tho needs of the surviving ducks of
the coast of Long Island, when they reach a
safe feeding ground and essay to tell of the
awful creature that pursued them among the
Inlets near Montauk Point—Pittsburg Bulletin. 	
Bees and rlgeons.
An amusing experiment was recently made
hi Westphalia todetermln, the relative speed
of flight of iws ami piget'lis. Tho racecourse
through tbo ah* was threo and a half miles In
length. Tbe bees were marked by covering
them with flour, which doubtless in a certain
moasuro retarded their flight, yet the first
bee arrived at tho winning post twenty-flvo
seconds before tbe first pigeon, nnd three
other bees camo in before the second bird arrived. The speed of Qlght is not stated, but
as it is known that pigeons fly at tho rate of
fifty miles or moro an hour, this seems to establish the fact that bees bavo a flight as
speedy as tbat of our swifter birds.—Boston
Herald.        	
Ono on the Drummer.
"I never was bluffed In so pleasant a way
as on my last trip," said Joblots, tho drummer, lately. "I was just about to enter an
office when 1 saw a stairway with a sign,
'This way for commercial salesroom.' I supposed the stairs led to tho counting room, so
I went up, and found myself In a long hall
with walls where pointing boards directed
the way. I passed through the hall and came
to a stairway lending down as another board
pointed. I descended, aud opening the door

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deal
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon lhe wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne'S Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all ovet
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. Thc other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
i native baraars, and judging from their salet
1 we fancy their lojurn there will he" hut
I evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraoralinnry efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, thc Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have otaa.irreai
und-c our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Chulera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used ->ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a lirm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe tai the proj)
fession and the public, as we ire of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
