Hydrophobia From a Calf's Bit.
Atlanta, Ga., April 8. On a farm a
few miles from Atlanta a Jersey calf,
owned by a man named Milling, today
developed signs of hydrophobia and bit
several other calves, also sheep and
swine. A young son of the farmer.
while attempting to keep a pet lamb
from the mad calf, was severely bitten
on the arm, and from latest accounts his
injuries are fatal. The anisaals bitten
by the calf have since died of hydro
phobia. This is the first instance of the
kind known in Georgia.
Des Moines, la., April G. The senate
today passed the house bill forbidding
railroads from blacklisting their employ
es. It makes an exception in the case of
employes discharged for gross negligence
or drunkenness, but provides a stern pen
alty for attempting to prevent employes
discharged for other reasons from obtain
ing situations elsewhere. It is designed
especially to cover the ease of railroad
employes who are blacklisted for engag
ing in strikes or who for aay reason in
cur the disfavor of their superintendent.

WILKE5HARRE. Pa., April 3. A start
ling story was told in the mayor's office
l:ist night. Charles Engel, a reputable
citizen, swore that at a meeting of Hun
garians held tho night before it was re
solved by them that three men who bore
evidence against the Hungarians for par
ticipating in the recent riots should be
put to death. The meeting was a secret
one, but one of the conspirators became
frightened and gave the scheme away.
The plan adopted was to go to the
houses of the doomed men on a certain
night, a la Mollie McGuire, and kill
them in bed. Warrants have been issued
for the arrest of all whose names could
Tornado at Sioux City.
Siocx City, la., April 6. During a
violent electric storm early last night, a
tornado passed over the city from the
southwest to the northeast. The funnel
cloud was seen by many and was accom
panied by a roaring noise. It only struck
in one place in the extreme northwest
part of tho city, passing rapidly over
the western suburbs. At the place where
the cloud struck it picked p the resi
dence of Mark Modlin and hurled it to
the ground in the rear of the lot. Mrs.
Modlin was severely injured. The
neighboring house of Mr. Richmond was
wrecked and a barn near by knocked to
kindling wood. Mr. Hodjia says that
he saw two clouds form and meet to
gether, aud in a moment his house was
hurled from its foundation.
Efforts to Remove a General.
Matamokos, Mex., April 5 A strong
effort is be'ug mmle here by the state
party, acting through Gan. Pedro Ilino
josa, minister of war, to secure the re
moval of Gen. Eulalio Vela, in command
here, and replace on this frontier some of
their partisans, among whom is Col. Vil
lareal, commander of the 4th infantry,
who is extremely unpopular with the
people, being a Texan by birth and also
an officer whoso relations with the Amer
ican side of the river are exceedingly
bad, who is a desperate American hater.
It was usiiler t;e practical rule of Villa
real that the Martinez revolution was al

somewhat alarming proportions, which
was put down by V, The latter gen

FAITH'S VISTA. '
When from the vaulted wonder of the sky
The curtain of tho light is drawn aside.
And I behold the stars in all their wide
filgnlflcance and glorious mystery.
Assured that those more distant orbs are suns
Round which Innumerable worlds revolve,
My faith grows strong, my day born doubts dis
solve, And death, that dread annulment which life shuns,
Or fain would shun, becomes to life tho way.
The thoroughfare to greater worlds on high.
The bridge from star to star. Seek how we may.
There is no other road across the sky;
And, looking up, I bear star voices say: ,

Clrcns Man Ilefore King Umbandlnl.
It is not often that circus "artistes" find
their way into the realms of a South African
chief; but when they do it would seem that
their reoeption is likely to be very enthusias
tic. A "strong man" from a Cape Town cir
cus, recently journeyed to the far off regions
of Aiua Swaziland, and there gave a display
of his skill and power before Chief Umban
dini at his "great place." So pleased waa
Umbandini at the j.erf ormancc that he forth
with dictated a testimonial gratis. Here it
is: "We gladly certify that you have per
formed at our Royal Kraal, Swaziland, on
rings, poles, chairs and sticks; that you hav
also plaj'ed with an iron tree, and also car
ried a large cannon on your back, and fired
it off your back in our presence. We wer
astonished and gratified at the wonderful acti
that you and your little son performed. We
do not believe that you will ever die. Given
at our Royal Kraal this J)th day of Decem
ber, 1887. TJmbandini (his mark), King

A Gypsy Rand from Russia.
One result of Lord Randolph's visit to Rus
sia, may be the advent in this country of tho
famous gypsy band which is known by the
name of its- leader and conductor, Nikolai
Shishkin. This Bohemian hand has long been
one of the chief musical sensations of the St.
Petersburg season, and Lord Randolph had
several chances of hearing it play during his
visit. Ho first heard it at the French ambas
sador's ball, and was so struck by tho unique
character of both performers and music that
his curiosity was aroused. Ho sought and
gained an introduction to Nikolai Shishkin
himself, and took subsequently tho greatest
interest in him and his band. The most curi
ous feature of this gypsy band is the presence
in it of a number of female gypsies, some of
whom arc typical beauties. The more hand
some of these musical gypsy damsels make
excellent marriages. London Figaro.

But wo cannot afford to imitate England
in the matter of education. We have no
leisure class. Everybody works. And boys
rush through school and the higher schools
which we, by courtesy, call colleges to
plunge into invoice books, to make briefs of
titles, to gulp down as much law as they can
before beginning the practice of what they
will learn by their experience and that of
their clients'. As to the law which ought
to be a learned profession a long and sound
preparation in the classics is almost a neces
sity. Few young lawyers and few young
doctors have the time for it. But for tho
aspirants for success in the various form of
business one of two modern languages are
absolutely necessary. New York Freeman's
A Bad Bit of Territory.
The little, old fashioned village on tho
crescent shore that marks the water lino on
t-h.0 southern end of Mackinac Island has
been the scene of more robbery, debauchery
and ruin worked upon the trusting, ignorant
and helpless reds of this upper lake land than
was ever known in any equal bit of territory
on the globe. A very old and squatty but
amply whitewashed building may yet be
seen there, in which one can buy rum or
Elay billiards, and which was the headquar
rs of the Fur company. Ever since jt was
built poison has been dealt out in it--to tho
Indians, rum for furs; to tho Americans,
rum for cash. Visitors even now are bled
quite freely. Rich furs were then bought by
the pound( and it js said tha$ wh;te men had
a way of giving an Indian a deep drink of
rum, and then persuading him that "white
man's hand jist pound." Then white man
laid his hand on one scale, and drunk Indian
piled beaver skins on the other until white
man's arm could holij down no more, and
that was pound' worth"S3.80." Money waa
of no use to the reds, and what they got in
its stead cost them fabulous prices. The In
dians went away poorer and poorer every
time they came.
Beside the traffic in f urs, the island was tho
place where for many years the Indians gath
ered annually to receive their ntoney from
tho United States for ceded lands. Hero
many thousands of dollars were paid over to
the unprotected reds, who were f 10 poorer
for every 1 paid them. The crescent beach,
has Itcen seen covered with Jndian canoes,
and the old village crowded with men and
women drunk from day to day until their
money had all passed into the bands of white
traders," God save the mark! and then they
would gradually get starved into the neces
sity of going back to th wxis to hunt for a
living. Charles Ellis in American Magazine.

iTIIE SCOTCH OIL MINES.
A PETROLEUM FIELD THAT IS WAIT
ING FOR A CHANCE.
When American Well Run Dry the
Shal Mines Can Be Worked at m rroUU
Tbe Lubricant, the Ammonia and the
Wax the Moat Valuable Products.
William Findlay, of West Calder, Scot
land, which is in the ancient oil shale re
gion of that country, has been making a
tour of the Pennsylvania petroleum llclda,
and was in New York recently.
"I am more than amazed," said he, "at
what I have seen. The petroleum of
Scotland is mined like coal, and although
I had read of the oil wells of America, I
was not prepared for such a vast differ
ence in the methods of oil production.
The Scotch petroleum is not in the fluid
state, but in a shale formation. The ex
tracting of the products of this shalo was
for many years a most important In
dustry, and is quite an extensive one yet;
but the America:: c'A, Loia i.laui.i.:j
and lubricating, is now set down in our
markets cheaper than the Scotch oil can
be produced, and how long our oil pro
duction will last is only a question of how
Ion 5 national pride will resist considera
tions of economy.
"The Scotch oil shale is black, and lies
at a depth of about 400 feet beneath Iho
surface. The shale producing regions are
all between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and
are known as the oil fields of West Calder.
They are very extensive, and literally in
exhaustible. Tha- is one hope we have.
Tho fluid oil of this couutry will undoubt
edly become exhausted or greatly cur
tailed in production some time in the
future. When your fields cease to pour
out a quantity of oil that enables you to
refine it, export it, and sell it in Scotland
at a less figure than it cost us to ext met
the oil from the shales at the very thresh
old of Scotch markets, we will come to
tbe front with our oil mines again, and
know that whatever happens they can't
"When the oil fields of West Calder
were being operated to n full capacity tho
shale refinery there, known as the Addis
well Oil works, and which cover seventy
five acres of ground, gave employment to
over 2,000 men. In various parts of the
field there were shale crushing works, not
unlike your coal breakers, whero the
shale is run on being taken from tho
mines. It is broken tip into small pieces
and tbe crude oil extracted at the
crushers. What we call crude oil
you would call tar over here. The re
finers take it and from it extract illumin
ating and lubricating oil, ammonia and
wax. The latter Is called parafinie in the
oil trade of this country. The tar from a
ton of shale will yield fourteen gallons of
illuminating oil. This is subjected to four
different acid distillations, each one much
heavier than any the American fluid pe
troleum requires. The result is a clear,
white high flash illuminaut, as good as
American kerosene, but four times as ex
pensive. If the American product simply
came in competition with our illuminat
ing oil, the effect on our trade would not
bo of much consequence, as in that branch
of the Scotch oil business is not where the
profit lies. The lubricant, the ammonia,
and the wax are the products which make
the shale mines valuable. The American
lubricating oil is cheaper, and those who
use it say better than any. The latter
altogether I can't agree with. Of "course
the American oil does not interfere with
our ammonia products nor with oui wax
trade, but we can't afford to produce'
kerosene and lubricating oil to throw
away in order that we may get at the
ammonia aud wax that tho shale contains.
I am forced to say, therefore, to use an
Americanism, that the Scotch oil business
is not booming at the present time."

When .Emerson's Library Burud
Those who are fortunate enough to have
the entree to Theodore Parker's famous re
ceptions in Boston, where congregated a gal
axy of brilliant men and women, such as
Emerson, Sumner, Phillips, Garrison, Mrs.
Howe, may remember the tall, vigorous girl,
with a mass of dark soft hair, framing a
strong, resolute, frank, earnest face, with,
bright, eager gray blue eye and. firm, tender
lips, sitting quietly in somo corner listening
with animation and interest. Her would the
host invariably seek out, and, with a hearty
hand shake and kindly smile, would ask,
"Well, how goes it, my child? Keep your
heart up, Louisa;" and tbe Concord dreamer,
Emerson, would eventually find himself
drifting into the retired corner for a little
chat with this, shy girj, fop the friendship be
tween them was beautiful and touching, no
it was who helped her find Goethe, her life
long admired author. "When Emersoa'
library was burning in Concord," relates
Miss Alcott, 4I went to him as he stood
with the firelight on his strong, sweet face,
and endeavored to express my sympathy for
the loss of his most valued possessions, but
he answered cheerily, 'Never mind, Iouisat
see what a beautiful blaze, the; make! We
will enjoy that now.' The lesson was never
forgotten, and in tho varied losses that have
come to me I have learned to look for some
thing beautiful and bright." New York Sur.
Tfcp TaU of Blood,
We gave a day to Cawnpoor, thirty miles

has a large native leather industry and somo
fine rice mills, aud a jute manufactory whjch
was very Interesting.
We drove eyop tUa vast military canton
ment, admired its comfortable officers' bun
galows, and its long line of large two story
barracks, arranged en echelon on one side of
the great parade ground. Here the fury of
the mutiny was unrelenting, and. the tiger
like heart of Nan.a. gahb had n opportunity
to exhibit its ferocious quality. I stood by
the monument which covers the great well
into which he hurled 700 men. women and
children nnoff ending noncombatants. butch
ered in cold blood and many thrown in
while yet alive; some of the children as yet
unhurt. J then ceased to wonder at tbe bit
ter feeling so many English here have for tho
natives. Tbe memory of the butcheries of
'57 is yet fresh in their hearts. A colossal
winged angel in pure white stands over tho
spot and in marble beauty looks down ith
touching pity, which, every one must feel
