Many are the pitfalls which lie r? ere
path of the man .vho sits down to i. il.e
his will. In a case recently tried in Lhe
probate court the witnesses were stated
in the usual words to have "hereunto
subscribed their names," but it happened
that these witnesses' signatures were
written in the margin and somewhat
higher than these attesting words.
Hence arose the grave question, Could a
P'gnature be said to be subscribed when,
strictly speaking, it was superscrilwiJ?
It is tasy to conceive a judge of rigidly
logical tendencies who would have de
cided that there had been in this case no
Fortunately Sir C. Parker Butt, forti-
feed by a decLsioh of Lord Campbell, de
cided that, though it might seem a
strange interpretation to put upon the
word "subscribe," to hold that writing
the witnesses' names above the testator's
signature in the margins was a com
pliance with the act, yet in the eye of
the law the word "subscribe" "simply
means signing the name without any
reference to its position on the docu
merit." London News.

Two hundred and forty words a min
ute, four words every second, is a rate of
speed which seem. almost beyond tho
power of articulation, yet that was the
measure of the torrent of eloquent ex
position and apieal jKmred forth in St,
Paul'a church Monday by the Rev. Dr.
Phillips Brooks. Try to equal it read
ing from a printed page in a conversa
tional tone, and then imagine the im
mensely increased difficulty of the task
in a large church, before a great congre
gation, and without the gr.idance even
of a written note. The business men,
for whom the service was especially de
signed, had been assured that the dis
course would be short, and so it was in
time, for it was finished in twenty-five
minutes, but the report made by two
stenographic reporters covered 6,000
vords and gave the extraordinary aver
ages with which this paragraph opens.
Norel Bird Storj.
When Mr. Andrew Young returned
from Alaska last fall he went out to his
ranch on Young's river to dig his pota
toes. Passing a hollow tree he noticed
several bushels already gathered. He
looked around the patch, but saw no
signs of anyone having disturbed the
ground, and to solve the mystery watched
-the tree. He was soon rewarded hy see
ing a flock of bluejays alight on the tree,
nd each bird had .1 potato in its bill,
wMch was dropped into an opening in a
lirrb and passed on down to the ground,
lie procured sacks, and as fast as one
was filled another was put at th-3 place,
and in this way tho birds harvested fifty
bushels of potatoes for him from various
patches around the country. Astoria
A Mnttkrat Trap.
Jim Can dee, an old Lyme trapper, has
caugh: an unprecedented number of
Tfluskrats this year. He sinks a half barrel
near tae runs of the rats to the level A
the ground, half fills it with water, and
then c n fixating pieces of boards in the
tub places pmali pieces of carrots. When
the muskrat jumps in after the bait he
can't get out, and he leave3 the trap set
for another victim. Mr. Candee has
caught as many as six rata in a single
barrel in one night. Hartford Times.

A Ledy.ird !xy on Monday diicovered
a woodchnck in a heap of leaves in an
old tree and pulled him out. He waf?
curled up, with loth forepaws pressed
closely over his eyes. When his paws
were pulled off his eyes he did not open
them, but yawned an 1 gaped as a heavy
sleeper might be expected to do. The
animal could not be aroused from hi
dormant condition until he had been in
a warm room for several hours. New

If I had been asked a. few weeks ago to
name the two most interesting men in
America,! should have answered with
out hesitation, "Mr. Lowell and Gen.
rjherman" or "Gen. Sherman and Mr.
Lowell." for tins order of the names would
have- mattered little. The general's
stroi'g yet childlike nature, his varied
and well remcmlered experience, his ex
tensive reading, and his readiness and
slv" in eMnressi n:r himself iei a thousand
topics, made him a fascinating talker,
whether he were addre.-.iing two or
1 ? -
On the other hand, Mr. Lowell's poetic
imagination and keen yet kindly wit, hi:
intimate acquaintance with the bes
thoughts of the best minds of all lime
his familiarity with the history of the
past and his personal connection with
the historic happenings of his own day
combine to make him one of the half
dozen living men whom it were best
worth while to know. Like Gen. Sherman
and George Washington, Mr. Lowell was
a February child, and was 72 years old
on Washington's birthday. Gen. Sher
man reached hi.i seventy-first birthday
on Feb. 8, and died on the 11th. Critic
A Larc 1'rico for a Flower.
I eaw a new variety of plant for pc.rlsr
decoration in a florist's window the other
day, the price being marked at the- mod
it-t ligure of $100. In tho passion for this
sort of display, which is now rampant
here in Boston, I am told that the money
expended is out of all proportion to the
intrinsic value or beauty of the product,
some rare specimens being sought fcr in
preference to one in which the attrac
tions of form and color are conspicuons.
This sort of interest recalls the Dutch
tulip mania, and though there is perhaps
no danger that our Yankee flower fan
ciers will lose their heads, as the old
Hollanders did, yet it is worth remem
bering that the latter were hard headed,
matter of fact people, and it is uch, by
the way, who are apt to be most unset
tled by a gust of excitement. Boston
Lark of Men Who Dance.
The complaint is made that the danc
h g men in society are scarcely beyond
the age of knickerbockers, and a call has
gone out for more men of years, weigh
and discretion who are willing to make
themselves generally useful at the finall
dances of society. There has never been
a year in the hi.-tory of Xew York when
balls occurred in private ho-ises so fre
quently as this season. Two or three
dances a night have been the rule. As a
majority of the men ic society are also
in business, it is difficult to see how they
can be expected to sit up until 4 o'clock
in the morning every night in the week
and still go to their offices at the accus
tomed time. Apparently there is an
other long felt want in society which th&
conditions of New York life make it
impossible for men to fulfill. New York
Wanted to Complete His Trade.
Charles Drum, 20 years of age, wtj
pleaded guilty to snatching a purse from
a lady on Jackson street, got threo years
and a half in the penitentiary. The
judge was about to sentence him to the
reformatory when Drum spoke up and
informed the court that he had once be
fore been coTivicted, the first time fv
burglary. Drum's counsel let the cat
out of the bag by saying tbat his client
preferred Stillwater to St. Cloud be
cause he desired to complete his trad
that of a tinsmith. The court did no
appear to be ranch swayed by the de
fendant's preferences, and made it state
prison on his admission of a former con
Tiction. St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Good Day for Whale.
A Brazilian bark which arrived in
New York the other day reports seeing
eighty-four whales ia one day. Some of
the monsters were two or three miles
away, but others came so close to the
w&sel that the fishy odor made tue
sailors sick. At this season of the jca
we see no reason to doubt the story.
