unaccustomed to travel, to human nature, to
using money judiciously and to keeping an ac
count of tho eamo, ought not to join in tho
undertaking. When four suitablo persons

A Dade's Mishap.
Cor. Albany Journal.
The happiost efforts of stago performers to

whom we have taken to calling "dude's," oa
tho last night of the grand opera
season In the Academy or inusio. 110
was exquisito as to tho sweet bang
of his hair, ear-crowding hight of his collar,
and especially the extreme f ashionableness of
his raiment His thin overcoat was shown, as
he Btrodo with haughty languor down the
aisle, to bo in the approved degree shorter than
the swallow-tail underneath. On reaching his
seat, he stood and leisurely surveyed the im
mense audience, as is tno custom or
the dude before divesting himself of
what he would have called his top
coat. It was in this operation that he mado his
impression, rorhaps it was tho light weight
of a new spring garment that deceived him.
Anyhow, he inadvertently took off the over
coat and the undercoat together, folded them
slowly and gracefully, and laid them over the
back of his chair. The sight of the dandy in
his shirt sleeves and vest (he would say waist
coat) seemed to catch the eyes of everybody
in the house instantly, and a gen
eral triecle doonened ouioklv into unan
imous haw-haws. So much of shirt bosom is
exposed in the prevailing style of evenir
dress that he naturally did not at once disco' V Or
his undue exhibition of linen, and he waa
seated before he was aware that he w'a8 the
cause of all the noise. Then hia studied
equanimity was for once destroyed. fa strug
gling haste to pull his swallow -fc'd, ' coat ont of
tho other, and to put it on, was. comical as
the rest of his mishap.
Don't He Afraid of. Work.
Don't bo afraid of killing yourself with over
work, son, is the facetious Way. The Borling
toa Hawkeye has of counseling young men to
thrift Men seldom work so hard as that on
the Bunny side of thirty. They dio sometimes,
but it is because they quit work at 0 p. m., and
don't get home until 2 a. ra. It's tho intervals
that kill, my son. The work givos you an ap
petite for your meals; it lends solidity to your
slumber; it gives you a perfect and grateful
appreciation of a holiday. Thero rTe young
men who do not work, my son young men
who make a living by sucking the end of
a pane, and who can tie a necktio in eleven
different knots, and never lay a wrinkle in it;
who can spend more money in a uay than you
can earn in a month, son ; and who will go to
the sheriff's to buy a postal card, and apply at
the office of tho commissioners for a marriage
license. So find out what you want to be and
do, son, and take off your coat and make a
success in the world. The busier you are, the
less evil you will be apt to get into, "the sweeter
will be your sleep, the brighter and happier
your holiday and the better satisfied will the
world be with you.

C'entni KLraree Concerning tne Pop
ulation of the District r Colombia.
Kew York Son.
Tho latest census contains some interesting
figuros concerning the population of that ano
malous division of tho union, the District of
Columbia. It says that the population of the
district at the timo of tho enumeration 1880
was OC.02-1. Those are classified under four
heads, tho majority of them being comprised
under tho head of "professional and personal
services." Of the 89,975 persons thus classi
fied, 7,W6 aro civil officials anj lesser em
ployes of the government They are baroly
outnumbered by thoso enumerated as "labor,
ers," but aro outnumbered In noarly' tho pro
portion of two or threo by tho domostio ser
vants, who constitute tho most numorous class
in the district Tho cluster of officers and
men of tho army and navy numbers 010, and
is L'oO loss thau tho army of lawyers. There
aro oS5 barbers, "0 preachers, 4'm doctors,and
Hl'i private watchmen and detectives. The
number of lobbyists is not stated. As they
would properly come under the head of "pro
fessional and personal," they aro probably
among tho LOlY persons whse professional
and iicrsonal services aie not furthtr cassifierl.
".Manufacturing, mechanical and mining"
induat ics give employment to 15,.'i37 persons,
whose occupation cover a wido range of pur
suits. Tho'number of miners Is 12. Of tailors,
"tailoresses," milliners, and dressmakers
thore aro ,S27, while there are only " hat
and cap makers. The industries that havo to
do with the erection of buildings are tho most
numerously represented. A solitary glass
work operative is enumerated.
Iu "trado and transportation" 9,843 persons
aro employod. Thero aro nearly 3,000 clerks,
salesmen, and accountants in stores. The
"tradors and dealers" numbor 2107, the com
mercial travelers, hucksters, and peddlors list,
and tho bar-tenders 'J. VI not counting those
who are enumerated elsewhere with the l,.r05
hotel and restaurant keepers and employes.
Tho tolograph companies employ 161 persons.
Only 1 ,401 persons are classified as being en
gaged in agriculture, and of those 42 are com
prised uuder the bead of gardenors, nursery
men, and vine-growers. The numbor of farm
ers is agricultural laborers 410, and
"others in agriculture" 2SL
I'robably thero is no other tract of equal size
on the surface of tho earth in which so small a
percentage of people is engaged in the produc
tion of anything which has a market value.
Illiteracy Xot u Source of Anarchism
Thoro is a disposition in manyjquartcrs to
charge the growth of anarchism aud other
social heresies to illiteracy, and to suppose
that a few years schooling for every
child would render tho development of this
kind of fanatics impossible. It has not a
vestige of evidenco in its favor. It is of a
piece with the philosophy which expects to put
an end to crimo by a more general diffusion of
auciout history and cube root The facta do
not show it Tho convicts in our state prisons
can nearly all road and write, and most of
thorn havo been Sunday-school scholars. They
have gone wrong in spite of these restraints.
So it is with socialists, communists, nihilists
and the like.
So far from being an aggregato of evil
mindod individuals, to whom schooling has
been denied, we find them widely organizod
into socioties, carrying on correspondence with
distant countries, nrintintr in nno cnnntrv
manifestos for circulation in others, and main
taining mcir newspapers or magazines, in
which the most difficult problems of gorern
meut are tackled with a confidence which

Cor. Cincinnati Enquirer.
I had ono funny experionoo during the
cholera epidemic. Thero was a man named
Miller who kept a sort of hotol and saloon
near tho old gas works. Ho was a rough sort
of a follow, and his p:trons wero roustabouts
and the roughest river clement One night I
was summoned to attoud a patient at his house.
I found the mau puttering from a violent at
tack of cholera, and believed his case hope'oss.
at regular half-hour intervals. I told the man
Miller my fears, but cautionod him to give him
his medicine regularly. I called the next
morning and foviud the patient sitting up.
Miller, in response to my inquiry as to wheth
er ho had followed my instructions in regard
to the medicine, said: 'No, I though the poor
devil was a goner any way, and I did not think
there was any use of wasting time' on him, so
I mixed the whole dozen viowdors ud at once
and gave them to him, aud d d if he diun't
get uettor right away.' After that 1 was a firm
believer in heavy doses as an effectual way of
AVouldn't flop Oat.
The Cheyenne Sun tells a story about two
men from somewhere who dropped ir.to a
store in that city, and a conversation about
electric lamps ensued. One wished Po know
how tho lamps were extinguished when the
store was closed, and a oAerk replied that the
ngnts were mown our, but said me ciern -u
takes a strong pair of lungs." A long tin
tube used to extinguish oil lamps was procured,
and one of the men proceeded to ex
hibit his Iup Dower. He pointed the muzzle
of the tub'j at the lamp and blew out his
brains, DUt the lamp was too much for him,
oro apon his companion saia, -vny, you
"'nmntive littlo cuss, you couldn't blow out

Peddling Electricity in Paris.
It is not uncommon to meet in our streets
peddlers of keroseno going from house to
house vending their illuminating fluid from a
can. In Paris the electric stored light id
carried about tho streets like kerosene here,
and it is said to have become a favorite way of
illuminating houses on social and official oc
casions. The accumulators are carried in a
vehicle, wliich is stationed in front of tho
houso, and electric wires are conducted into
the building through tho windows. Incandes
cent lamps are placed in the ordinary candel
abras, and the fitting of the most complex
light is an affair of but a very short time.

overgrofa timber trees, tha cypress and rod
woo-, aro gonorally cut at a distanco up the
runk high enough to overcome the bulbous
nature of tho baso. In regard to the tompora
ture iu the timbers, it is a curious fact that
whilo a chopper would hardly ever think of
building a firo near hie work to keep him
warm, he frequently builds no to keep his
axe warm. A oold, frost-filled axe-head
has a positivo dislike for entoring wood
that cau only bo pvorcomo by coax
ing aud koeping the frost out of it
The dexterity and procislon with which a first
class choppor handles his axe are remarkable.
Trees three feet in diameter are often cut en.
tiro!y through and still retain their perpendic
ular position until a broozo, or some alight
shock topples them over. The two gaps ou
either sido moot in a straight lino. To the
uovico thero aro many etrange things within
tho province of an axe. In clearing a piece of
farm laud it is frequently a stipulation that the
choppor shall "buckot his stumps to hold a
pail of water; in other words, loavo a concave
bowl on thoir tops to catch rainwater ami rot
them. In the piuerios the ax is used for noarly
cvory purpose for which a cutting tool is re
quired. With it the choppor trims his "boot
pack," cuts lacings thongs, "buckets," horse
aud cattle feed-boxos, pins up his sheds, shan
ties and out-houses, constructs his bobs, and
"go-duvils," and ev on whittles his tooth-picks.
Ho gutters chips for drinking cups, fixes to
bacco for hia pipo, throws flying bridgos ovor
wiuter streams, whittles out tho oheckors for
his evcainc's amusement and carves tho
checker board. In a word, it is a part and
parc-dl of himself, and its song is the music of
to tug ear.
After leaving the pineries tho axe has a long
ramble to a .uow life upon tho Pacific elope.
In California,, on tho coast range, it enters tho
famous redwoods, and then indeod another
existence is fo und. In fact its position in so
ciety is elevateit 1 hose noolo trees, tno uo-
liaths of tho f oreet, aN fast disappeariug.
But thoir gigant Jc stumps still remain to tell
of their depart- bd greatness. And enormous
stumps thoy tru Jy aro. So much so, indeed,
that the axe hf a to climb in tho world to
overcome them, and tho chopper assumos a
position which 1 10 is not compelled to attempt
anywhere else. To surmount tho enormous
swell at tho base- of tho treo and commence
operations where tho averago diamoter of the
11 unit may ne eajj to begin, lie puuus a plat
form mado of stakes ivith cross-pieces of rails,
sometimes six or ton feet high around his
victim, and chops from that, cutting above the

simply "bucket" a holo i in the trunk, and driv
ing a stout stake into it, . stands perched upon
that slender foothold as LW dextrously swings
his blade. Tho size of thi .redwood giants is
if world-famous, and it is A legend of tho
coast that a woodsman ha.9' chopped tor a
week on one side of a trrnii'lr around it
and found another chopiTvlui had worked
for a month on the other side. .Hngo they are,

inquisitive blade to tho mysterie '3 of untolu

the death-bellow of the forest colo ssus, as, in
his final agony, he plunges down some dark,
wooded canon, crushing all before him, may
be heard reverberating in dull thunt1er through
the cloaked hills at all seasons of the year.
But it is not until the cypress swan ips of the
southland are reached that the axe takes to
water. Ba those dark-shadowed and mess
draped lagoona the chopper becomes r.mphib
ious,and performs his work whale skilfully bal

son, not an inexpert hand wiWi an axe, 1A't a
novice at swinging, one, whilo teetering in a
canoe, did so, and mourned. Once on ths Bayots
Teeche he paddled up to a big t.tee, whoso
great, bulbous stem reached far un der water,
and fastening his dug-out to the tio victim,
seized his axa and boldly stood erect in tho
prow. Balancing himself for a mon.out. until
a true equilibrium was attained, h e swung
back his axe and made a bold strok o at tho
tree. Tho dug-out attempted a somer. tault in
stantly. It shot out of water at the
stern; the cutter ehot under water
at the bow; and, whero tho axe w( mt is a
mystery to this day. Tho eou.th has
a world of wealth in tho cypress, ana' it has
been comparatively lightly drawn upon. It is
a soft, fino-grained wood, very freo from knots
and blemishes, and easily worked. Without
question the most easily manipulated wood in
tho world is tho sott, smooth, glossy-gr. lined
mahogany pino of California, the famous red
wood. Its grain is so straight and bo dolic.ito
ly woven that, to use a chopper's expression,
"it splits if you shaka an axe it"
Of the axe in the oak lands of the south
west, where it labors for France and Spain,
sending them annually thousands! of dollars'
worth of Btaves, and also of its desultory ex
istence in cordwood, chopping -grubbing,"
charcoal-stacking, hoop-pole-cuttlii;, and kin
dred, industries, little need be said, save that
it does its share of the work honestly, and has
a settled policy that no man shall hold inter
course with it with his coat on. This defer
ence it exacta from all with whom it enters into
business relations, whether among tho ice
locked lakes and rivers of tho white pine, the
laurel-scented canons of the coast range, or the
magnolia-haunted lagoons of the mournful,
moss-draped cypress. Thoro is no healthier,
cleaner and more enjoyable exercise in the world
than Bwinging an axo. In handling one noarly
every muscle or tho body is brought into active
play. In fact the axo is "a whole gymnasium in
itself. A torpid liver, dyspeptic stomach or
malaria-haunted system it seizes upon merci
lessly, chops out the trouble, mangles it, hurls
it. away, and fills the laudable vacancy with
the appetite of a wolf and the digestion of an
ostrich. As a mental, moral and religious in
structor it occupies an exalted position. In the
first placo it instructs whero there is plenty of
elbow-room and fresh air, and while the eye
and hand are occupied, the mind, prompted
and reinforced from a body well attuned to
healthy exercise, finds new fields of meditation
and cogitation in which to ramble, investigate
improve itself and invent And as a healthy
body generates a healthy brain, tho latter re
turns the courtesy by supplying the former
with honest physical desires. Thero is hardly
another physical labor affording tho independ
ence of the axeman. Iu timbered lauds ho ia
always in domand, and his workshop is from
ocean to ocean and from Hudson Bay to tho
Gulf. In the woods thero is always room for

Among the legislators who assemble at Aus
tin, thore are quite a number of as intelligent
and excellent gentlemen as can be scared up
anywhero in tho Uuitod States, but the major
ity of them are somewhat like Confederate
bonds below par. Tho sentiment of the
Austinites on this subject may be illustrated
from the following little story: "An old peas
ant on the seashore was telling his visitor how
peasant it was. 'But,' asked his friend, slap
ping his face with his handkerchief, 'don t
youhave a great nianv mosquitoes and sand
dies' Ya-as,' said the man, "but then we
sorter liko 'em.' 'How can that be?' 'Wa-aL
you see, they don't stay all the time and we feel
so kinder good when they go away.'

A little Austin bootblack picked up a very
short eigar stump, and.holding it up.'romarked
to a companion :
"You can see by that cigar stump that the
members of tho legislature have done loft Aus

"What do you mean?"
T mean you can tell thoy havo left because
the cigar stumps have got shorter. AVhen them
