Btrauga Spirit Manifestations.
One of the bent authenticated in
stances of phoHtly visitation ib connected
with Dr. K-riier'8bocalleJ Seeroof I'ro
voet. Dr. Keruer for many yenra con
ducted an asylum for the insane at
Weinsburg. in Southern Uermauy
There came to hiin frr treatment a Mrs.
llauffe, a lady in delicate health, of
great nervous irritability, and with u
mind which was, to say the least, not too
well balanced. Wherever Wiia afilicted
woman went, and Dr. Jnstinns Kerner
is authority, she was pursued by a
variety of strange noises. Chiuawure
and glassware, tables and chairs were
my6teriously moved in the presence of
witnesses. A medicine vial rose slowiy
into the air and had to be brought back
by one of the bystanders.
On several occasions an easy chair wt
lifted np to the ceiling by unseen power
and then returned slowly to the floor
On one occasion the great skeptic. Dr
Strausz, was one of her visitors, and
during his stay Mrs. ilanffe fell al--;
on her sofa when there immediate ly
arose long, fearful groanings close by
the doctor's side and in the vicinity of
tiis amiable but remarkable hostess
The strange siuTerinjjf woman was the
only one who knew the cause of
these phenomena. She ascribed them
all to a dark spirit who appeared to h-r
as a black column of smoke with a hil
ous head, whose unseen approach ot
pressed even the bystanders.
Dr. Keruer relates countless mysteri
ous phenomena which occurred iu this
patient's bedroom. He beheld Mrs
llaufTe's shoes pulled oil by invisible
hands while she was lying almost iiiain
mate in a trance on her bed. She re
vealed secrets which, upon writing to
utterly unknown persons at a great dis
tance. Dr. Kerner proved to be correctly
stated. Philadelphia Press.
Helping the MaMs.
During the War of the Revolution,
while the American and British armies
were contending in Pennsylvania, Gen
eral Washington was in the neighbor
hood of Marietta, Lancaster county
General Lee. with two or three aides-de-camp,
rode in advance, and stopping
at a wayside inn, informed the landlord
that General Washington and his staff
officers would quarter at his houe f- r
This news, of course, caused great cor
fusion among the inmates of the estab
lishment They wanted to do honor to
the beloved conimander, and bustled
about to have all things in readiness
upon his arrival.
"Here, you," said the genius who
presided in the kitchen to General Lee,
ignorant of his rank in the army, "just
go out to that woodpile and pplit u n
armful for me. I must hurry up this
fire, or 1 cannot get a good supper for
The officer, enjoying the joke, obedi
ently took up the ax, and soon the chips
were flying in all directions. He wad
busily working away when Washington
and his staff rode up to the tavern.
"Why, General Lee," said the coin-inander-in-chief.
"what in the world are
"Oh," replied Lee, lifting his head.
"1 am helping the maids in the kitchen.
General Washington and his officers are
coming here for supper to-night."
Both generals burst into a hearty
laugh, in which their companions joined;
and even the landlady, who had set the
general at work, enjoyed the joke after
she had recovered somewhat from her
mortification. Youth's Companion.
The Bridegroom Had a Dog License.
People who have lived in cities where
marriage licenses are required often
have great difficulty in understanding
the system in vogue here. They cannot
realize that the services of a minister or
alderman are all that is necessary when
the parties have reached the proper age.
A German whose knowledge of the Eng
lish language is limited wished to gt-t
married not long ago, and being under
the impression that a license was neces
sary he started out to secure one. He
wandered around the postoffice and the
various municipal and county buildings
for an hour or two, nnable to "find the
place where licenses were to be had.
Finally he managed to explain to a
policeman that he wanted a license, al
though he was unable to make it clear
what kind of a one he was after. The
officer directed him to the place where
dog licenses are issued, and the happy
suitor paid his fee and received the
That evening the German and his
blushing affianced went to the house of
a minister to have the Gordian knot tied.
When the bridegroom proudly handed
over his dog license the worthy pastor
could hardly perform the ceremony for
suppressed laughter. The couple, how
ever, were none the less firmly married
because the paper allowed the husband
to keep a dog instead of to wed a wife.
New York Tribune.
London as It Was.
Haydn's "Dictionary of Dates" makes
the statement that the old name of the
city of London was written Lynden or
Llyndin, meaning "the city on the lake."
An old tradition gives us to understand
that London was founded by Brute, a
descendant of Eneas, and called New
Troy, or Troynovant, until the time of
Xud, who surrounded the town with
walls and named it Caer-Lud, or Lud's
town. This latter is probably the cor
rect version of the story, if for no
other reason because it is an easy mat
ter to detect a similarity between the ex
pression Lud's town and London. It is
claimed by some writers that there was
a city on the same spot 1,107 years B. C.
and it is known that the Romans found
ed a city there called Londinium A. D.

How a New York Boy Got a It!
Whn Times Were Different from Tu.l c

incident in the history of one of the iv
successful merchants shows a dt-v. :
uieut of this trait early in his busim
Coming to New York from the cor.n
try. without friends and with very litti.
money, he found his way to "lowtr
Wall street." and walking into the store
of W. & Co., passed back into the count
ing room and waited modestly and pa
tiently till he should divert the attention
of Mr W . who was at the moment
busily engaged with some friend. At
last the frank, open face of the boy ft'
tracted his notice, and he addressed him
"What can 1 do for you, sonny?"
"1 want a place, sir."
"Well, what can yon do?"
The boy answered eagerly:
"Most anything, Kir."
Mr. W , partly for a joke and part
ly to rid himself of the almost too confi
dent boy, said:
"Ah, ah! Well, just go out and nor
row me a couple of thousand dollars."
The lad placed his hat on his head,
walked out of the store, then passed
slowly down Front street till he came i
another large store in the same -line of
business, our friends of the past, Messr
S. C. & C, then, with a bold but hoiK-M
look, he walked up to the head of the
house and said:
"Mr. W , of W. & Oo., sent me
down to borrow $2,000."
"He did, my son? How ia business u;
at your place?"
The boy, having seen the appearanc e
of large shipments, answered quickly
"Very good, sir."
"Two thousand dollars did you say'
Will that be enough?"
"Well, $3,000 is all he told me, but A
you have plenty I think he would like it
if you sent him $3,000."
"Just give this boy a check for 3.000
for W. & Co.." remarked Mr. S to
The boy took the check and with it re
turned to Mr. W , walking back into
the office with an air of successful pride
"Here it is. sir."
Mr. W , taking one look at the
check and then at the boy, said:
"Young man, come in here; you a-re
just the one I have been, looking for."
And giving him a desk he set him to
work. New York Recorder.
While strolling in the fields near a
Email hamlet not thirty miles from
Rochester I came across an antiquated
graveyard overgrown with ivy and
mosses, the stones of which bore dates
between 1796 and 1820. 1 scraped the
mold from a few of the stones and
brought to light these inscriptions. Thi.

A belt connects the mjtor with the
shaft which operates the drums, the
