Maine Man Thought lie Had ThcrJ
When He Uidn't,
"I seo by The Herald that a New
York restaurateur is going to Man-
ciiester, in. ii., wun uie liiienuon 01
raisitia: frogs for the Boston market,' '
said a Maine man to a reporter yester
day. "Now, I'll bet the best pair of
boots lve got, he continued, that ue
will be disappointed. Why? Simply
because ho can't do it, that's all. Let
me tell you of an experiment of thi3
sort that was tried away down in Ban
gor some years ago. - ihere was a
prominent Bangorian, a bank presi
dent, wealthy, and holding a tip top
position in the business world, but a
triile eccentric. He made lots of money
in Jiis rt-gular business, but he was
forever inventing something which
he believed woulu make him a million
aire, and into these schemes lie put a
good deal of cash which never came
out again. He didn't know discour
agement, though, and would come up
smiling with something new every
time one of his pet projects was
knocked into a cocked hat. Well, he
got the idea which has seized the New
York man, that there was au immense
profit to be made by raising frogs for
the Boston market. He had a charm
inbitof lawn adjoining his residence,
and this ho decided to, make the hatch
ing groutivi. He had a big, round
shallow pit dug, and the bottom of it
stoned and cemented, so it wouldn't
leak. The dirt taken out was made
into a circular embankment around
the pool, and about the edges he set
out rushes and other fresh water
plants, to givo the frogs a nice hiding
place. Ho had water turned in
through a special line of pipes, at a
great cost, and the 'pond' thus formed
was to all appearance just the place
that a frog with ' luxurious tastes
would' delight to inhabit Then he
enlisted the services of all the small
boys in the neighborhood to catch tad
poles and little frogs, paying them
liberally, and in a shoreline his 'pond'
was populous with tho Bquirmers and
Junipers. ' To be sure they would
lave plenty to eat, he supplied his. pets
with frequent and geneious repasts of
mjneed liver, Whito bread crumbs and
pther delicacies he thought they
coiouy in rove wor- u th tod
po - ICTveloped into little frogs, and
the little frogs fast grew to fat 'bull
paddocks.' The air in the vicinity
fairly throbbed with their shrill songs
and dolorous grunts of an evening,
and people camo from far and near to
see tlio wonderful sight. One night a
New York friend of the frog culturist
came iu on the late train and was
taken to his house. Tho newcomer
noticed the unusual sounds and asked
their meaning, whereupon his host re
vealed to him the wholo scheme, and
received his congratulations on the
romising look of the enterprise, lie-
ore the two separated for- the night
they agreed, to go in the early morn
ing aiia inspect the pool. They kept
their agreement, and, not long after
dawn, sallied out, each carrying a
quota of food for the croakers. All
was silent when they reached the
'pond.' 'Never mind, said the frog
farmer, 'just you wait until I throw
in this chopped liver and you'll see
plenty of them. He cast his panful
of the dainty far out, and it fell into
the water with a tremendous splash.
But thero was no response ; no angular
head with goggle eyes appeared in the
vicinity ; no sprawling legs were seen
kicking under the surface ; there was
not a single 'ker-chug' to denote the
E lunge of a croaker from, tho rushy
anks. 'Throw yours iu now,' said
the host, and the guest complied. But
when this splash nad died away the
placid pool was disturbed by no move
ment. 'Well, this is singular,' ex
claimed tho puzzled cultivator; 'there's
enough of 'em about here, and 1 never
knew em to hide like tins before.
So the two walked around and aro.unq
tho 'DoncL intently watching. They
saw nothinff, however, and when at
last the how nettled bank president
seized a pole and threshed the weeds
and rushes, ho did not scaro up any
thing. Panting and perspiring with
his exertions he was a portly man

For breakfast. That disposed of, the
quest was resumed, but neither then
nor ever since has a frog been seen in

A Man of Crent Weight.
Sam Eldredge, cf t!u- I ...; t f tiudc,
took a trip to Europe, and when he came
jack he naturally ft It a little more iru
'Kirtant, as all men doafter their first trip
ic ross the water. lie was forever telling
ibout what ho saw abroad, and these
stories became tiresome to his associates
on 'change. One morning Andy Shaw
came on the floor looking very rocky.
Andy is a good deal of a wag when he
reels in the mood, and, when some of his
friends inquired as to his unhealthy aj
earanco, he said: "You see, it's just like
this. Yesterday afternoon when I left
ilie office 1 had a dull thumping head
ache, so I thought I would try to walk it
off. Accordingly I started to walk home.
Just after I had crossed the bridge I ex
perienced a peculiar feeling. It was aa
though I was walking up hill. The far
ther I walked the steeper the hill seemed.
When I reached home I was utterly ex
hausted. I was at a los? to explain this
peculiar feeling until I came down this
morning and learned what caused it. I
couldn't sleep all night, as I was so ex
hausted, but I find that Sam Elcircdge
was on the south side as I was walking
homo and that ' he north side tipped up."
Caught by a Monkey,
A murder is reported to have been
committed some way off Wynaad, in
which a monkey detected the murderers.
It appears that a juggler with his wife,
a goat and two monkeys were attacked
by two Moplahs. who killed all except
the male monkey, wliich escaped, and
buried the bodies in the jungle, "tie
male monkey took its static-it vpoit a big
tree, watched evyythhig and when a
constabje passed by the animal made
after him, laid hold on the man's leg and
dragged him o the place where the
bodies were buried. The bodies, were ex
humed, after which th.6 monkey Bhowed
the way tp a hu which the murderers
had entered. Not finding them, the
animal took the constable a another di
rection and suddenly ran at full speed
and seized a MopJah, who was going to
bathe, near a tank, by tho neck
waited till the tKmstaU Thrived. This
led to the d-ctjon of tho murderers,
v,v2 uave been brought to Calicut.

In reply to the query, "Of all the dif
ferent kinds of stable lloors, particularly
for cattle, which kind do you say is
best?" Country Gentleman replies:
You will liave to decide partly accord
ing to circumstances, between earth
floors, or paved with cobble stones, flag
stones, cement, durable plank, or plank
and iron grating. Earth will answer
only where there is perfect natural
drainage or careful artificial drainage,
with enough litter or bedding at hand to
absorb all the liquid manure; otherwise
the stable will become muddy. Stones
or flagging will answer only where there
will always be plenty of straw litter to
make the floor soft and warm. Cement
has partly the same objection, and i3
liable, if in horse stables, to be more or
less broken up by tho sharp horseshoes;
but with plenty of litter this objection is
obviated. Plank has several advantages;
it is less hard and cold than stone and
cement; it ia easily kept clean; and if
well soaked, when made, with crude
petroleum, and with a coat of gas tai
between the two layers of plank, it will
be quite durable. The manure gutter is
easily mado and managed.
Her Errand Boy.
Tho story comes from Washington that
Jie other day a gentleman called upon
Zlhief Justice Fuller and was shown into
the parlor. Very soon one of his daugh
ters, Pauline by name, a young lady in
her earl 7 teens, came in to explain that
there had been a mistake by the servant.
"Jly papa, said she, "has gone on an
errand for me, and I am expecting him
back very soon. You might wait for
lum if you wish." Fancy the chief jus
tice of the United States running errands
for a parcel of girls! Chicago Herald.
Five Bally Ijoya.
A etorv was told the other day of
prominent lawyer of St. Paul, who.se
handwriting is none the best, that
amused me. It seems that he had just
become the happy father of a bouncing
.baby boy, and hi his joy he rushed to a
telegraph offlce and sent the following
messa're to his brother: "Fine baby boy,
Mother sind bov doinc well." His bro
ther immediately telegraphed back
'Your message reads: 1 ive baby boys.
Is there any mistake in the count?'St.
