A hunt took place lust Friday, with
D. W. Curtis and A. J. Graves ua captains.
There waa not very much game secured,
but the Curtis side won. and a feast pre
pared by Mrs. Howard Allen on Satur
day evening, was eaten by those who
participated in the hunt . We under
stand that another hunt is to come oil
soon, this lime it is to be a dollar apiece
f.r the losers, and every fellow must
hic a partner to help eat.
A wave from the dehorning idea has
leen wafted this way. Mr. ilenry Calk
ins and Mr. A. M. Holmes have had all of
their cattle dehorned and David Youim
has tried it on one vicious cow. We be
lieve this to be a great improvement in
stock raining and th'nk when the advan
tages and In-nelits arc once thoroughly
understood that everybody will dehorn
their cattle, for the reason that the horn
is used as a wenpon, nnd for no other
We want to shkc hands with those
jurymen who sustained those teachers in
their efforts to maintain good order in
school. In' our opinion that was
a righteous verdict for this modern idea
that teachers should have no authority
whatever to compel obedience to reason
able demands for order and deportment,
is one of the greatest fallacies of the age,
and we are ready to sign a petction to
the legislature asking them to change
the law, so that school teachers may
have the right to require obedience to
reasonable rules. We are in favor of
olebienre any how, even to reasonable
corjMral punishment if necessary.

Instruction m Interpreted. .
H was a night reporter on a daily
paper and it came in his way to inter
view two worthy ladies connected
with ono of our benevolent institutions
on a subject of some importance. Tho
city editor told him to use tact and
make himself agreeable. As tho mat
ter was not wanted for the uext edi
tion he could take his time and not
hurry the ladies in their recital.
Theso were his instructions: at 8 p.
m. he appeared at the institution, the
inmates of which had just been called
to prayers. The rest pf tho story i
fjest told in the words of the elder lady
"He seemed a very nice, agreeable
young man, and we thought ho had
known some of our patients, or had
some idea of adopting an infant from
the children's ward. My assistant,
Miss , she is a young lady, was a
little nervous, as wo have so few calls
from gentlemen. But wo asked him
out to see our house service, and he
sung and read a chapter, and was very
nice. Then we went back to the par
lor and Miss wanted to excuse
herself, but I would not let her leave,
and tho young man I thought would
"I wish you could have heard him
talk I He told us all about himself
and what a checkered career ho had
gone through, and Miss became
quite sympaineiic, uut wo were
both dreadfully worried. Wo did not
know what ho wanted, and he gave us
no chanco to ask. I was so sleepy for
a while that tho smile froze on my
face, and I saw doublo. Then ho made
me tell tho history of the institution,
and that is my weak point. Every
time my assistant. Miss , would
attempt to go I would frown at her. .
"We both knew that everything in the
house was going wrong.- I could seo
the clock, but the young man sat with
his back to it. At last it struck 2! !
Then he asked what time it was. I
told him it was 2 o'clock in the morn
ing, and then ho let the cat out of tho
bag at last. He told mo who ho was.
' 'We fellows just consider this tho
shank of the evening,' ho tsaid. 'You
see, I'm an all night man, but I am
afraid I have been keeping you ladies
"Wo both said: 'Oh, no, no, no,'
for wo were almost stupoiicd, and much
too sleepy (o tell tho truth. Uut we
both wondered what bin business was
with us, and, do you believe it, bo
told us in ess than live minutes 1 Ho
simply wanted to know if a statement
in the evening paper of tlrj night be
fore was true!" Detroit Free Tress.
and" its wars did "not play havoc with
'Jie dukes and tho princes who sprang
up around its head. The harm was
done by the second empire, whoso
ideal was fairo bombance. Tho higher
class Bonapartists ate, drank and were
nearly all guzzlers, and managed to
soak any amount of fiuo wines at their
lunches and dinners. Tho fashion in
their time came in of having us many
wineglasses at each plate as there aro
flues in a great stack of chimneys.
When the apjietite palled, tho sorbet
russe was brought in to act on tho un
fortunate stomach as a tonic, and en
able it to go through as much more as
it had gone through already. One of
the reasons why Marshal Duzaino
could not get quickly out of Metz, to
bar tho way against tho Prussians,
was that tho emperor fctarted before
him, and so the road was blocked with
service de la bouehe and the wagons
carrying the belongings of his im
perial majesty, which were truly im
pediments. When tho Israelites wero
under a theocracy, and the chief
priest's sons ate as do city of London
aldermen, tho Philistines routed them.
Likewise Marshal de Soubise was im
mortalized by his sauce for mutton
chops antl disgraced by his defeat. j

tact only with tho porter and head
waiter. The porter is usually selected
for his intelligence, for his ability as a
linguist and for his sizo height rather.
You make all inquiries of him con
cerning tho hotel, about the arrival
and departure of trains, tho. sights of
the town, etc., and you invariably get
civil and intelligent replies to all your
questions. Tho so called porter (por
tier), howeyer, in no sense corresponds
to the American idea of a porter, nor
is he called upon to do tho slightest
physical labor. He receives guests,
sees them depart and makes himself
very useful in many ways; but as for
lifting a trunk or carrying a satchel,
this is entirely beneath his position
and his dignity, he actual porter
performs this labor, and both of these
officials expect and receive a fee
the guest's departure, Jjx paying your
bill at a German hotel you seo neither
proprietor, manager nor porter; neither
will receive it; you are obliged to pay
the waiter, who thus makes sura of
his fee. Homo Journal,
