SHERIDAN CROWING BETTER.
Favorable Turn in the Condition of
He Says he Feels Splendid A Turn
Washington, Slay 29. The latent re
ports from General Sheridan's sick In-tl
indicate a decidedly favorable turn in his
condition. At i) o'clock last evening the
physicians in attendance report that
the general was looking and feeling bet
ter than he had for forty-eight hours pre
viously. All day yesterday, notwith
standing newspaper reports to the contra'
ry, General Sheridan was delirious. He
turned uneasily in his bed and muttered
unintelligibly. 1 he swelling in his limbs
occasioned by oedema, as the result of
sluggishness of circulation, increased.
Later in the night there was a decided
turn for the worse and for several hours
eirh moment was expected to be his last.
Early this morning the general's pulse be
came more normal, the swelling in his
limbs decreased, and when the consula
tion of the physicians was held it was
universally decided that ft turn for the
better had taken place, During the day
he has been conscious with few excep
tions, has 'recognized friends, and had
absolutely no return of the last sinking
spells. The house has been lesieged to
day with callers and many pedestrians
and carriages have turned into Rhode
Island avenue, passing the general's
house. While there is no expectation that
General Sheridan will recover permanent
ly from the attack from which he has
been suffering, some hopes are held out
tonight that he will rally sufficiently from
the attack under favorable conditions to
be once more up and about. "His carter,
however," said one of the physicians in
attendance, !has ended, and whatever
the present results may be they cannot be
Tery long delayed."
Troops Sent to Oelrichs.
Chadiion, Neb., May 29. The Indian
scare at Oelrichs, Dak., h&3 been made so
much of that today a troop of cavalry
under Cautain Hughes lef: Fort Robinson
en route for that place. Calls had been
been made upon governor of Dakota for
troops but today they were countermand
ed. There is a large emigration pouring
iuto the country expected to be open for
settlement and they are denied admission
to the reservation and if they get into the
reservation are notified to at once depart.
Fort Robinson, Neb., May 29. Two
troops of the ninth cavalry were ordered
out today by the department commander
to go to Oelrichs, Dak., to investigate
the reported Indian outbreak. Every
thing is quiet. The excitement was caus
ed by u hunting party under Little Chief,
of the Cheyennes.
Rapid City, Dak., May 29. The In
dian scare at Oelrichs has subsided, and
settlers who stampeded have returned to
their homes ashamed of the fright they
cxhihted. No danger ever existed, and
the alarming reports sent out from there
were wholly unwarranted by the tacts.
Colonel Thorqby's request for two hun
dred stand of arms from Bismarck
will be disregarded. Not a little sport
has been made of the people who allowed
their timidity to get the better of their
judgement. Parties who have come into
this plate from along the Cheyenne river
bring no news of the Indians whatever.
All is quiet as far as can be learned, apd
no more danger of an outbreak exists
now than at any time for years.
Hurdle pf Amcrica Half IrfcIi-
The experience of the teachers of the
Lincoln institution confirms the viewa
Mre expressed, that the mixed IndjAU i
more exempt from pulmonary disease
than the pure Indian; and, further, that
if the former are attacked by disease,
they offer greater constitutional resist
ance to it than the latter. This view is
also confirmed by the large e:rperience
of Capt. R. II. Pratf, superintendent qt
the Carlisle Indian.6chool, who says in
his last report: "Our experience is that
iUo mixed bloods resist disease and death
from pulmonary troubles better than the
full bloods; and our best health condi
tions are found among those we send out
Into families due, I think, very largely
to the regular occupation ana varied
Similar views have been expressed by
others who have resided among the
mixed or half breed races in the north
western part of Canada. These people
are sajd to be strong and hearty, long
b'ved, and not subject to disease,' so Jong
as they remain in their native climate,
Thoy regard tltemselves as the equal of
the whites, and look in a rjarronizing
way on the Indian. Their families are
usually very large, and the female sex Uj
said to be very handsome. Quite re
cently I had occasion to investigate the
question whether pulmonary consump
tion tends to exterminate the American
Indian, and I then found that nearly all
those Indian agencies whjph. show (he
lowest consumption rate are precisely
those which are shown in the table of
this paper to contain the largest number
of mixed- bloods. Thomas J. Mays, M.
P., in Popular Science Monthly.
A rtuyer of FaU Teeth.
A sharp eyed little man attracted the
writers attention In a Chicago hotel by
the close watch he maintained at the dm
ner table npon the jaws of the other
L A Ma . A ' I I
frueeia. aiier watcuing mem au pruiiy
closely ror a while, he hnally concent rated
his attention npon an elderly gentleman
opposite, who ate his food with some diill
culty. Even a casual observer rould have
noted that he selected only tlio softest
articles on the bill of fare.
"That man has a bad fitt ing set of teeth
and I'll get them," said the little man.
When the elderly gentleman left the table
the little ono followed, and in a few mo
ments was in conversation with him, aud,
as it afterward transpired, had engaged to
buy his false teeth as soon as he had ob
tained a new set.
This little man picks up a great many
nets of false teeth in the course of a year.
Most persons that havo a set before they
reach 80 years of age are obliged to buy
two more sets, at least, before they rcacli
CO years, and the mouth changes so that
teeth that fit well and serve their wearer
well at first after a while do not fit aud
cause the wearer a great deal of discom
fort. The man that makes a living in
this line has acquired a great knack for
discovering 111 fitting teeth, and he scarcely
ever falls to secure a bargain, for notwith
standing false teeth are the only immortal
material about oar bodies, masmuch as
they are said to be capable of resist ing 4,000
dogs, of heat (Fahrenheit), very few people
know that they aro worth anything second
hand, and so the little man gets them at
his own figure.
He told the writer that many sets of
false teeth are found. Owners are more
careless of them than is supposed, and in
stances are more frequent than would be
Imagined In which they have been left in
hotel bedrooms. They have been found in
railroad cars and even in horse cars, and
quite frequently turn up in cabs. As the
cabbies and railroad employes cannot wear
other people's teeth they hunt up the
buyer, and he gets the set for a few shil
lings. The scavengers sometimes rake up
a set in an ash barrel, and sets are some
times picked up in the streets. One set
was found in a magpie's nest in Pennsyl
vania, and another was picked out of a
woman's throat by a surgeon. The patient
would never wear them again, and they
were sold far 'a gong. The little man
picks up a nice living by his purchases,
adding to it now and then bv buying a
second hand wig or two. New York
Hungry Fire Department llones.
Fire department horses in the big cities
are, as a rule, ravenous feeders. There
are certain hours of the day when they
are fed, and the horse soon comes to knqw
the feeding hours as well as the hostlers.
As early aa 5:30 o'clock' in tha morning is
aats feeding tune.' If the feeder happens
to be a little slow in getting down fctairs,
if he is only two minytea late, there is the
Catest tramping of hoofs on the wooden
rs, kicking the sides of the stalls and
the wickedest champing of bridle bits ever
seen or heard in a stable. This sort of
racket is kept up continuously, too, until
the oats are divided out for the meal.
The moment they commence feeding, I?
an alarm comes in, every horse in the
house will leave his oats and take his
placo under the swinging harness, and
will impatiently dance around anxious tq
get off for a run. The firo department
horse i3, I believe, tha only ono that will
leave his oats voluntarily to go to work.
The best hostlers in the department al
ways take the bits out of the mouths of
the horses at feeding time. This is done
to give the animal a chance to thoroughly
masticate his food. The horsa that eats
with the bit in his mouth soon loses his
appetite from indigestion, and will not
last long in the department. Firo Chief
Hind Beached Through the I$o.ty
That mental disorders may iu many in
stances be cured by corporeal measures
ail know. Some sudden shock to the
body has often proved the only means by
which a long standing mania has beea
removed. It is wonderful, for instance,
what a marvelous effect the 6ubinersion
pf the wpuld bo suicide in the cold depths
of the dark river has upon his mind. No
sooner is he rescued and brought to his
senses than all thought of putting an end
to his existence has vanished, and he. pnee
more braces himself up t fight the battle
of life. The disappointed lover who es
pecially if she be a woman is tempora
rily deranged, finds a plunge into, the
nearest pond quickly alters her views as
to her miserable condition. The fires of
Jove are pfteq as effectually quenched by
one rash dip and the troubled mind as.
speedily restored to feealtby PCjudition,
as though the fajsa pna had never be
trayed her, pr thp'treacherqiis yoyr cac

Teaching Humanity In School.
A boy in school was having a very funny
time, by sticking a pin into the legs of tho
boy who sat next him.! and laughing jtfc bt!
antic. The teacher caught sight of the pro
ceeding, and taking a pin, went to the first
mentioned boy and said: "Would you like
to have a pin stuck into you like that f lie
Jaughed as though ho thought (t rqight be a,
capital joke, whereat tha. fc4ier used. tLu
pin father freely, and his jumpiugs and
squirmings, accompanied by his "ows jn and
endeavprs to saye himself by the use of his
hands, attracted the attention of tbe whole
school. The teacher finally asked him what
was the matter and why he did not sit
quietly, and when he said that he couldn't,
"it hurt," so, the teacher said: "Well, that
is just the way it feels to other people. Have
you bad enough of it.p
He was very decidpi in his opinion that he
bad, and the teacher took occasion to say a
few words to the school in regard tq their
treatment, not only of each other, but of
the lower animals. She said: "I saw a toy
kill a toad last night, and wpnderAcJ i
knew the toad, U tt$lp tq us, and it he
thought of the toad's suffering. $ioSt of
tbe boys looked thoughtful, a few laughed,
and tbe very boy that killed the toad raised
his hand and said: "What good can a toad
dof" Upon tbe teacher's inquiry among the
scholars she found that only a few knew any
thing pf (be good that a toad does in the.
garden. It was tbe means of a reforrq in
that direction, and a talk on tbe uses of bird
revealed tbe fact' that very few pf thenj

Of all our sleeiing millions who arise
at sun call with more or less reluctance
or promptness, how many are free from
morning headache? Not a large propor
tion, ko far ns 1 have observed. It is
probable that a majority acquire their
pain from wrong posture during bleep. I
hare asked many bow they lie in 1 ki1; I
find generally they rest upon the side,
with legs drawn up and chin tiion the
chest rolled up like a chicken in an
egg shell. Some few elecp upon the
back, one or two prone, and several with
an arm stretched up beneath tho head;
but the usual posture is, I think, as first

About 500 years ago thcro was a cele
brated pundit of Nudya, who was par
ticularly fond of country spirits, nnd
used to take about a quart of it every day.
People suspecting him of this weakness
watched him. One evening, when ho
was returning from his vesper prayers at
the riverside, he was seen tooomo out on
the sly from a grog shop, with his water
pot full of aniseed ana&k, and he was
taxed by the crowd Jor conduct so dis
reputable in a Brahmin of his learning
and sanctity. He denied the charge, and
placed the-vessel before bis accuser, when
lo! it anneared to contain milk. A
miracle! a miracle! cried the crowd, ruid, I
