The CliariwtPr (Generally Drawn Upon It
In t;nni!ktitkMbIe IJuca.
Every ono knows that men's paw;:on.s, jro
len.sitics and j-uliurilies, us well an their
callings, are rellm-ted in their faces, but it i-i
only tho few who have mado the study of
physiognomy an c.sjecial pursuit who uro
gifted with tho power of reading ttmso face.
j Judges who liavo Kcrvod long terms on tho
Ix-iicn, lawyers in large jinua ico und ilM'tors
of ciiiinenco possess tho Kwcr of inU-rjiro'ting
physiognomies moro largely than other
peojdo. Hut any one ca:i uquiro fie riuli
meiils of tho art by dint of study.
It is us iiuj Kjssil do to disguise a faco as a
hand writing. When tho exiort cvunes tho
ilhiguiso is torn olf and the faco tells tho true
story of the spirit insido the ljody. Ono only
needs to vi:it the iienitentiarv to realize how
j umli'iihtbly vice write its sign manual on tho
features. It is not the drunkard oaly whoso
nil nose, lbibby checks and rheumy oyes
betray him; it is the sensualist whose vice is
read in his lips, the knavo whose. proiK-usity
is revealed by tho shajM! of his laoutli, Hie
man of violence who is surrendered by his
eyes. An e.vperiewiil deti-tivo or a trai::-d
jailor seldom nn.'ds to ask tho crime of which
his prisoner was guilty. Ho can tell it by
his face.
It is quite evident that in tho future tho
study of phsiognomy is going to bo pursued
more vigorously than ithaslieen. Asaineans
of preventing crime, it may prove invalua
ble. How constantly do wo hear of men
"falling from grace," as tho phrase, goes!
Yet these men must have carried their crime
in their face for a long time. If uuy one had
hi-en able to read their features tho mischief
might have been averted. Mow often aro wo
assured that this or that criminal en joy til
tho orfect conlideuco of his employers and
the public till the very day of Lis detection;
uu expert physiognomist would probably
have .spotted him long before. Again, faco
reading might be turned to fino account in
business. It is well known that every man's
faeo is moro or less stamped by the pursuit
ho follows. An oyporience d observer can
generally detect u lawyer, or a doctor, or a
merchant, or a clerk, or a mechanic, or a
clergy man, by merely studying his face.
Tho study might be carried much further.
The s-iiiio rule which enables an observer to
distinguish a lawyer from a merchant will,
v.-lu n followed out, enable ki-ii eyes to sepa
rate able lawyers from lawyers who are in
competent, merchants who ure going to make
a fortune from merchants who are going to
fad. Hon often carry their destinies as v.eil
as their character in their faces. Indeed, tho
former ileK-nds so largely upon the latter
that it would be singular if it were otherwise.
Women, too, wiil be able to discriminate
among their lovers, and to pick out the man
who will make a gixjil husband from one who
will have to b.j dragged into c. divorce court.
All the adva'itages which Fowler mistakenly
told us we were going to derive from the
study of phrenology-v.o may possibly gaiu
from tho older and more mysterious science
of face reading. San Francisco Call.
A Story of Jesso J:mes.
''Now that I am on the subjectof trotting,"
said Secretary Hall, of Detroit, in tho rotunda
of the Merchants', "I am reminded of an iu
cident that took place in 1S75 at the Kansas
City meeting. There were several thousand
people congregated in the vicinity of the
ticket olliee, when suddenly a band of men
rode into the iuclosure und began discharging
firearms apparently right into tho crowd.
As they expected, there was a general scatter
ing, and ere the people collected their senses
the ticket man had been overpowered and
Lis cash lox, containing alnnit $1,"00, taken
away by the members of tho shooting party,
who turned out to bo niemlers of the Jesse
James gang. Rewards were offered for tho
letection and arrest of the perpetrators, but
aothiug ever came of it.
"The next summer, ono day while traveling
along the niad toward Independence Mission,
I met a single horseman, and we soou became
engaged iu conversation. We did not ex
change cards or names, but rode along into
the town on pretty good terms, and a few
moments after we separated I learned that
mv companion was none other than the
notorious Jesso James himself. It was his
crowd that liad robbed my ticket seller a year
before, but I did not recognize- him as ouo of
tho participants. Among the people it was
the general impression, aud I have never
heard it contradicted from a reliable source,
that Je:e James scorned to euaet tho role of
a highwayman when a single person was con
cerned, but took a delight in frightening
large crowds when in search of booty. His
men knew that shooting over the heads of
tho spectators would alarm them fully ns
much aud create more of a panic than by
killing people in cold blol, and henco their
foravs were always attended with a great
deal of noise, but little violence toward their
victims. St. 1 aul Oiobe.

Divorces in Paris.
Chicago has a proverbial reputation hero
for the multiidicity of its divorces and the
expedition with which they aro obtained.
Of course, a slow going old -world people
cannot bo expected to compete with you cn
that score. But I doubt if ever divorces
were granted for more grotesque reasons
than hero in Paris. Here, for example, is a
divorce granted to a man for no other reason
than that his wife would not let him read ail
the letters she wrote and received. A com
pan ion case is that of a -woman who got a
divorce from her husband because ho objected
to her having a lover, and made it unpleas
ant for tho latter to visit her at her house.
Apparently theso are considered good and
sufficient reasons, for they excite no comment
on the rart of the public. In Marseilles a
man has just len allowed a divorce because
his wife refused to give him the money sho
earned by taking in sewing. In Lyons a
divorce was based on tho inability of tho
couple to agree as to the training of their
children. Aud so it goes on. Tho number
of divorces granted aud the frivolity of the
grounds on which they aro Iwised increase

Intelligent Coroner's Juries.
"Death from delirium tremens resulting
from accidental causes," was the remarkable
verdict returned by a coroner's jury in this
city the other day. This is not the only hu
morous specimen which Mr. Ashbridge can
2c.hit to o:i the dockets of his office. A young
man in the last stages of pulmonary disease
kiilod himself with prussic acid. Dr. Formad
remarked at the inquest:
"He only accelerated his death, which must
surely- have coma from consumption iu a
very few weeks."
The intelligent six good men and true in
tho jury box astounded the coroner by arriv
ing at tins verdict: "Death from consump
tion, accelerated by prussic acid." Philadel

"May bo you havo It' ll not iced," said a
dealer in feat hers, "that some farmers !: ep
g. year ia and year out, let them ha vet ho
ru.i of the farm, end si-oiu to bkow them all
kinds of consideration, yet are riwuys swear
ing that they ure the biggest nuisance that it
could lo possible to have urouud. If you
Lave noticed tlmt peruliurity ia the daily
rounds of the husbandman, you ha. e doubt
less u!so wondered why in b:av:es the fanner
kept such nuisances around his promisin. 1
used to wonder why it was myself, but I
never, found outthe reason until one day last
summer. I was out on n Jersey farm, KJ lend
ing my vacation. The farmer had it big
flock of gei-se, and he was eternally throwing
the most hefty kind of Jersey cuss words at,
lhcni. One day I sat on the farmer's piazza
talking with hi;n. Tho gn-se ere placidly
(Topping grass down along the road, a great
big gander leading them on. Pence, tran
quility and contentment spoke in every
movement tho lawn destroying bijieils made.
"There wasn't u cloud in the sky. The
fanner's men were working without much
apparent vim at raking aud blading hay
down in a meadow not lar away. Suddenly
t'ae old gander poked up his h;-;;d, gave voice
to a jieculiar squawk, lifted his wings- and
started o!i" o:i a run as fast as his big web
feet would let hiia go. All tin gee:.' poked
up their necks at tho sound of the gander's
voic;, lifted their wings, and with a chorus
of noises that only a Hock of geese -.:: pro
duce, started alur tuo gamh r as tig'.li.s
they could wa hi !e. Tho gander nui i,:;
twenty yards, and then, with a wii l hrk-'.c.
ho t:xk wing and How in the direction of a
pond n short distance from the The
jcoso raised ami Hew after him. filling 1 he
air with their discordant cries, (hinder and
peese alighted in the pond, when; they all
gathenil in a hunch, held a consultation or
congratulatory co::fal iu a subdued chorus
of cackles, ami w.-nt throi'gh ail sorts of
maneuvers on the yoinl for a ti::io. when
they separated and swam about as placidly
as they had boon feeding a few ir.hiut'-s be
fore. "At tho first movement of tin- gander
v.h'n ho broke the 1 ranquiiity of the feeding
flock, my friend, the farmer, arose quickly
to his feet, aud as ho turned toward the
meadow, said:
" 'There's them dinged hayin' hands Work
in' as if they had all the rest o' the year to
get that hay in, an' here wu'w goin1 to ho
ketched in a tearin' old shower in less'n an
hour, or clso there hain't no use in keopin"
"The farmer hurried down to tho m:-adov,
spurred iqi the men, and lent a lieui ty hand
himself at tho hay. Before many minutes
had passed I saw clouds banking themselvts
in tho horizon, und presently tlio mutter of
distant thunder was heard among Hum.
The farnher was right. In an hour's time
one of the hardest thunder storms I ever saw
was raging over that part of X w Jer.-e ,-,
and it caught the last load of tlio old man's
Lay in transit. After .supper that night I
questioned my host t-n the goose, and found
that tho reason he kept them was to kvo
him posted on the weather.
" 'They hain't never felled me yet,' he said.
When I git uj in tho morum' an' see th'-m
Reese out on the poud a-divin' an' a-ilres -.i.i'
down their feathers as if they was goitiu'
ready to go to some party or other, I know
that v.-'re sure of clear, warm, dry weather,
an' I make my calc'lations Vordin'ly. Jf
they hain't a-dressin' of themselves much,
but act kiiider as if it wasn't o' much account
a-spruem' up, then I keep uiy eye on "em.
That's a v.-arniif that we're iu danger of a
spell o' weather. If the geese quits the iout".
an' don't go back much t hrough the day, :
know that the danger holds, an' I git rcacy
for a set rain of a day or so. If th:y teed
along awhile and waddle back to the pond
kinder chipiKT like, and go to drtssin' tin :u
selves ami divia', then I'm pooly s.irt!'i" i!;:.t
they won't lie no set rain comaiencin" that
day. If the geese gits uj all of a suducut
an' tears around like ye see 'eui this alic r
noon, thca there's a sluiwer coniiu', an' it's
a-comin' fast, ye kin bet.'
"So you need never wonder why some
farmers keci geese around, and still v.isti
they were in Halifax. They are their
weather jirognosticator, and they believe iu
'em as firmly as they do in tho making of ap
plejack. This farmer told me another
thing about theso geese weather signals. 11-;
said that whin they prophesy a storm tho
sounds they make are not like their cries j
any other time. Consequently the farmers
aro never fooled by the cries of a flock of j
goose that may rise in tho air from a plato
where they were out of aight, if the rise has
been caused by any fright the geese may
have been sub jocted to. An expert reader of
goose signals can tell tho frightened cry
from the 2roijhetie shriek as far as he can
hear it.
"Never saw a gooso plucking, hoy? Well,
it isn't a sight that would give you much j
pleasure. On tho day set for stripping getsc- !
of their feathers they are enticed into some j
airtight outhouse. The pickers, who aio
always women, go among the geese with
their heads and fact s entirely covered who. j
hoods fastened around the neck with a shii' r i
string. There are holes for the eyes, r;ud
also little holes at the nose for fresh air. j
From tho neck tluwn the picker is covered
with a glazed muslin garment, to which no
feathers or down will adhere. The pickers
sit ou low stools around a large and iicrfe-ctiy
dry tub. There is generally a man or boy in
the neighborhood who is an expert at getting
the gooso ready for picking. F.verylody evn'z
do that. The wings of the goose have to hi.
locked together by a peculiar arrangement
of the two near tho shoulders, and while
they aro not tied cr fastened iu any
other way, the lock is such that no goose can
unlock it without aid. The feet are tied to
gether with broad bands of soft muslin.
When a goose is thus made helpless it is
taken on tho picker's lap, and sho plucks the
feathers out rapidly but with lueh skiii that
she seldom breaks tho skin or causes blood to
follow. The air is koj't full tf feathers dur
ing the process, all ot which settle in tho big
tub at last. Before beginning cu a go;.so the
picker brushes the feathers back tho v.-roug
way, so that she can see the skin. An exj'ert
cau tell at a glance, by tho color of the skin,
whether she must exercise more than ordi
nary care in jduckiag it, or whether it Li not
better to let the goose go without plucking at
that time. In every case the picker mu.-t be
careful and not pluck the feathers tco close in
under ihe wiugs. If a coose has been im
properly picked in that respect tht wings will
di op aud drag on the ground. All through
this process of yanking tho feathers out o a
goose's Wxly, not a gourd cf complaint or cry
of pain is beard from tha goose. They sub
mit with a solemnity which would le laugh
able if it were nct for the evident io: tituJe
Uiat goes with it." New York Sun.

-V Grass raiting Turtle.
We Lave on the Mojavo desert a turtle
that cats grass. It lives in hole-s in th? sand,
which it makes to escape the intense heat
of the sun. Vou may take a stick aud get
them out. They are the Xerobates Agassizii,
just lately named for the great naturalist,
a very pretty turtle that gets on good feed
ing to be alxiut ten inches long and to weigh
six to eight pounels, A woman down on the
desert last summer where I was had eight or
ten of them in an open peu, which she was
fattening to cat. They ate grass like horses.
When these turtles get fat, as they quickly
do on the grass, they beat all the frogs or
roast turkeys you ever ate. An ordinary
one of these is worth 3 or S-L Naturalist iu
