ci.lelit Maine's Big Meteor.
Xi:w Yoiik, Sept. 20. Pros. J. S. Har
vey, of the agricultural and mechanical
college1. Orono, Me., has made a special
investigation concerning the meteor
which passed over Maine September 15.
ile writes as follows: "It was seen by a
great many persons widely separated and
must have illuminated a belt of country
several hundred miles in width. It was
distinctly seen at Bangor, Me., at the
Maine state college, by a party of astron
omers, by many persons of Vanceboro,
Calais and other towns in Maine ami by
citizens of St. Johns, ZIc Adams Halifax
md other points in the province's. The
meteor probably entered our atmosphere
near the boundary of the states and prov
inces and moved in a southeasterly
ourse, crossed the Bay of Fundy and
.leninsula of X'ova Scotia and landed inthc
Ulantie ocean. The time was estimated
by various observers as from two to three
seconds and the size that of a full moon
or small wash tub. Several believe they
heard a hissing or rushing sound. Most
f the observers say it was a round body
of a deep red color like the sun. It had
i S;i.oky atmosphere and from this the
.-eutral position extended. Purplish,
star-like scintiltations were continually
given off. Some competent observers
regard the body as oblong and one be
lieved the oblong m.-iss was divided into
two portions, separated by a space of
:;ivat;r brilliancy. The light given to the
..t:nos:.lure was ccr.sideied purplish in
color. Manv were badlv frightened.

Captain Black's Motion Overruled.
Attawa. 111., Sept. 20. Captain Blac k
counsel for the anarchists, asked the su
preme court to-day for leave to withdraw
the original record in the anarchist case
for thirty days, wishing to submit it to
his associate counsel iu New York and
then, if so advised, to submit the record
to the United States supreme court upon
application for a writ of error. After
consultation the court overruled the
motion. Chief Justice Sheldon said
similar motions had always been denied,
inel cited a case where an ex-judgeof the
court had asked and had been denied
leave to take the record to a hotel toloolc
it over during the night. Captain Black
appeared very much discouraged and
after court adjourned remarked that "he
would not have tho responsibility of
'lelavir. " that motion on his head for
the world," That the couit had only
,ivcn thein sixty days of life to work on
ami i'lis decision would give the impres
sion that the court did not desire to aid
the sevt n men in getting justice. One
of the judges, being told of this, said
that no matter what impression went
abroad, they proposed to do what was
in accordance with the rules
of the court. The record contains
2,000,000 words. Captain Black has
asked the clerk of the court to make an
estimate of what it would cost to make
a copy :;t once and advise him to-morrrw.

A Donkey Hide to A boa Seer.
Tho donkey ride to Abou Seer Is the
hardest on tho tour. It is through deep
eand, and often tho tiny donkeys sink
until your feet so drag as to impede your
progress. You cannot walk. In mercy
to your donkey you wish you could.
Your study of tho poor animal convinces
yoxi that he has great patience. The
driver is a, model of forbearance; there is
always, however, a perfect understanding
between donkey and driver. Although
the poor beast is continually goadod and
his tail twisted to make him go, or elso is
pushed bodily to right and left, and even
seized by the head and lifted to suit the
inclination of the master he liears it
blandly and cecms to feci that he must
deserve it or he never would be so tort
ured, lie is a fatalist, and believes
that, after all, ho is always a "good don
key" to his driver. For does he not hear
his driver te ll the howadji so, a hundred
times each day?
There are nearly a thousand synonyms
in Arabic for donkey, all tender and en
dearing. And then do I not know that
when the noon muezzin sounds the don
key and driver retire to some quiet shade
and have their loving make ups? I have
watched the human member of tho firm
as he came with tho meal of chopped
straw for his pet. I never saw such
mutual coddling and love signaling and
tender understanding in all my experi
ence. It is melting. The boy's face beams
with smiles wlnlo he calls his donkey pet
names in the softest tones; and the
homely animal so shakes Ids head, snaps
his eyes, and oscillates his neck as to
brighten his humble physiognomy into a
new expression. Edward L. Yv'ilson in
Scribner's.
rcrslan Wo jion Out of Doors.
The veil, which is habitually worn out
of doors even by the very poor in all
great towns in Persia, though its use is
unknown among the tribes who form at
least a third of the whole population, Is
clung to by the women as a privilege; it
is in fact a domino. The Persian woman
out of doors is unrecognizable even by
her husband. Sho sees without being
seen, and in the veil it is impossible to
detect the age of the wearer. As the
Persian lady is nearly alway s married at
1 i, she begins to fade at 27 at latest, at
80 she appears 50, and there are only two
dentists in the whole of Persia.
Polygamy is tho luxury of the rich;
with the upper and middle classes bigamy
is the rule. A man's first allianco is a
mariage de convenance, the second
either a marriage for love or for the grati
fication cf vanity. When your Persian
brings home a second wife there is usually
a scene which lasts for a week or two;
there is a struggle for supremacy, but it
is soon over. Both wives do their best
to please the master of the house, but
they do not attempt to poison each other,
unless in very exceptional circumstances.
But Persian ladies still believe in tho
efficacy of love philters, and many an
abomination is secretly administered to
unfortunate husbands. Happily, the
love philter, though usually composed of
horrible ingredint3, is quite harmless:
