The decision of tho United States court wiiii handed down something over a year ago in the Fiske will case against the Cornell university. In this case the nniversity lost $1,7.j0,000, and tho law firm of Hill & Bacon is said to have re ceived $400, (HX as their honorarimn from the successful heirs. The Mr. Hill in this firm is none other than Senator David Bennett Hill. The fee which John E. Parsons, the New York lawyer, received for organiz ing the Sugar trust is believed to be the largest ever paid to one New York at torney. The amount was f 100,000, the same enm received by Messrs. Hill & Bacon in tho FLske case. And yet, not withstanding this large fee, it did not take the courts long, once they got at it, to destroy the apparently invincible legal structure which the able and high priced lawyer had reared. John A. Cockerill in New York Recorder. A California Sculptor's Work. Douglas Tilden, the deaf and .dumb California sculptor, has completed in clay at his Paris studio a group of heroic size which he proposes to cast in bronze and send to the World's fair. One of this sculptor's works is now to be seen in Golden Gate park, at San Francisco. The subject of the last is a struggle be tween two Indians and a she bear (griz zly), whose cubs the Indians are trying to make off with. A Parisian critic says of the group: "It is broad in treat ment and daring in execution without exaggeration. The figure modeling of the two Indians is of high power, strong and harmonious at the same time. He has succeeded in showing not the muti lation of the two Indians by a ferocious brute, but a fine realization of a struggle for mastery and life which thrills with interest." This sculptor has been work ing in Paris four years, and was the first American to receive "honorable mention'" at a Paris salon. San Fran cisco Chronicle. An Unlucky Locomotive. Engineer Knowblow, of the Erie, has finally agreed to preside at the throttle of engine No. 670 of that road. This is the machine that passed through the two terrible wrecks on that road at Ra venna on July 3 and at Kent on Sept. 30. When it came out of the Meadville shops recently none of the boys wanted to sit at the right hand side of the cab in the unlucky engine, and it was only after considerable persuasion that Engi neer Knowblow was persuaded to take charge of the hoodooed locomotive. Railroaders are like sailors they have their superstitions, and an eugineman no more likes to run an unlucky ma chine than does an old tar to sail on certain unfoi-tunate vessels. Pittsburg Post. From London to Cliirajjo for 8135. Tours suitable to all pockets are being arranged by the London Polytechnic Young Men's Christian institute. A yachting trip to Norway, lasting threo weeks, and including a visit to the land of the midnight sun, is to cost only 12 15s.; the island of Madeira can be visited for 12, while 7 5s. will cover the ex pense of sixteen days in the Bernese Highlands. There is also to be a trip to tho Chicago World's fair, costing only twenty-live guineas from Liverpool. London Tit-Bits. A Maine Woodpile. The most wonderful woodpile on rec ord is owned by a man in Oxford county, Me. In ihe pile of eight cords, all cut from one piece of forest, are no fewer than twentj different kinds of wood, viz., white birch, yellow birch, white maple, rock maple, white ash, brown ash. black cherry, wild cherry, apple tree, elder, beech, moosewood, willow, fir, dogwood, spruce, sugar plum, elm, poplar and hemlock. The Joker Is at Large. J. C. Young, of Albany, has two wood en legs. A fool friend, who could think of no other way to be funny, tried to throw a knife into one of his legs. He succeeded, but it struck above the knee where the leg was flesh and blood. Mr. Young is now nursing an ugly and pain ful wound. The fool friend isn't in jail. but he ought to be. nian. Portland Orego- Maitie Soldiers Going to the Capital. Heath post, G. A. R., of Gardiner. Me., will go in style to the national en campment in Washington in September. The members have chartered the steam boat Kennebec, a seagoing side wheele of 1,653 tons, to take them and their friends to the number of 400 on a ten days trip, allowing four days at Wash ington. aEinerel Poison Kills Cattle. In Fayette county, Ida., a peculiar mineral poison exudes from the ground and contaminates the grass, upon which a herd of cattle fed. This caused greai losses to stockmen, who at first though the poison had been administered by vicious people. kti ASTONfOHEO 0OOTM SO MsMO. M'Hora f Jttitaritarl R-a Many Won derful Things in Kun I'ruiit'i'Mso. King MTJora of Buturitaj-i tpeut two by urn at the Olympic club, iuid was liroliiJy iim4'c nmuaed and surriscd than by anything ele he hart -eeii in San Francisco. The meiiilx-rs who were pr-oitt practicing in tho gymnasium gave an iinjromjtu exhibition. v.iil !i interested his South Sea majesty very much, and In gave evidence of thi in grunts and by c.-tures of Kuriri.e, auu almost of fe.tr, at Miue of the fiats:' the athletes. The tumbling was it M:r prise to him, and Ik could not under stand, while Professors Troncla t au! Chapins were fwicing, how it was that they did not drop dead when struck by the foil. A burktiquo Uixing cojuest ending in a well "faked" knockout was arranged fur the king and his party. Profef-sor L)o Witt Van Court and Philip B011I0 were tike boxers, and the" k'l! an exhibition which interested his i:-.la.id uiajeMy more than tho genuine liht he saw at tho California club. At the end Boulo wu apparently knocked out, and he was carried it of tho room limp and motionless. Of course he immediately returned, ami as he appeared tho king allowed a sigh of relief to escape hiin, and remarked through the interpreter that he wan glad the little fellow had not lieen killed, as he wa so plucky. After the exhibition King M'Bora find his lrty were shown tlu-ough tlie Olym pic clnb building. Lu the billiard room he had his first meeting with a piece of ice. His dusky majesty was given a ghiatt of ice water in resjonae to a re quest for a drink, lie saw the piece of ice floating in the water and could not understand what it was. He put hi royal right hand into the glar a! seized the cube of ice, but immediate) y dropped it and jumped back severely frightened. After an explanation he picked up the ice again and watched it slowly melt in his hand. He seemed to partially understand the philosophy of the thing and gave an order for an ice making machin, which he will take to Butaritari with him to cool his roy.J throat on hot summer days. f- In the ladies' parlor the glass chandt tier was lighted by eieetricity, and tu king immediataly wanted to know wher the oil tank was. He had had some ex peri en oe with gas before. The first night at his hotel, after having seen the ga turned on and lighted, he nearly termi nated his royal career by playiDg the Farmer Wayback act. He turned on the gas and lay down waiting' for the gas to light itself. One of the members of the Olympic dub who was going through the rooms with the party wanted the king to talk through the telephone. His majctty had already had an experience and waw so shocked that he did not care foi another. It was at Sutro Heights on his Visit Saturday. W. Laaterbach: who spent some time on the Gilbert islands, went to the stables on the place while the king was in Mr. Sutro's house. When the telephone connection was made King M'Bora was asked to put the receiver to his ear. As he did so Le heard words in his native language, and he dropped the instrument as if struck by lightning. A long explanation could not fully satisfy his mystified majesty. The king and his party remained at the rooms of the club until nearly midnight. San Francisco Chronicle. The Secret of Happiness. Not long ago Professor Black ie had oc casion to be in the Fair City Perth. He was waiting for a certain train, and was marching up and down the platform whistling gayly, and for all the world like a schoolboy en route home for his holidays. A gentleman near by, at onca recognizing the picturesque figure and wishing to enter into conversation with him, went up to him and asked him: "Professor, may I ask the secret of your happiness?" The genial professor smiled and an swered: "Well, here is the secret of my happi ness: 1 have no vain regrets for thepas-t, I look forward with hope to the future and 1 always strive to do my duty. There," he ended emphatically, "you have it." And he straightway set to and walked up and down again, whistlicg as before. London Tit-Bits. An Antediluvian Joke. A hardware drummer is responsible for the story that a clerk in one of oui hardware houses was informed that the last tailor's goose was sold and to order a dozen more. After puzzling over the matter for some time he wrote on a piece of paper as follows: 12 tailor geese. 12 tailor's geese. 12 tailor gooses. 12 tailor goose. 12 tail Then he got rattled, scratched hia head, looked in the dictionary and final ly formulated the following: "Gents please send at once one tailor's goose and eleven others." Burlington Hawkeye. Monkeys Slight Be Hade Useful. Monkeys could be used in certain case of fire, where expert climbing might be required; they could be used as messen gers to some extent, and to do many light chores for man. They could be taught to destroy many vicious insects, such as tobacco worms, cutworms, cabbage worms and many others. They could be taught to do many things on a farm, and I think long domestication would develop many fields of usefulness for them. New York Independent. A Stroke of Economy. The height of economy was that re cently practiced by a woman who will move to the suburbs, and who effected the sale of her address die which she has used for her stationary to the incoming tenant of the house she will leave. New York Times. Bather Literal. "That's an angel of a house'" said shel "Not quite," he rephed. ' "It only has one wing." Harper's Bazar. Tm M rehired Mtco PolVs "Travels" giers a cmi on aoconnt of Vivo inland, "dialant from Ketmecoran about C00 milM to ward the swuth, and about thirty miles from each other, the one lieing inhab ited by a company of nten without a hin gle woman among them, the other by women without the company of men. They are called, respectively, tho Island t.f Males and rlio Island of Females." Geographers and other interested in the Hirioities of history and navigation have made many attempts to ascertain the exact location of those fantastically named little Fiocks in tho great ocea::; but even after so much research ami etudy the Euroix-an as well as tho Amer ican geographical societies have been forced to admit that their wherealxiut is doubtful in the extreme. Some believe them to to identical with the Footnote islands, near Soeot a. but these last named are now too small for human habitation, besides In-ing too near the shure,s of the Red sea to cor respond with those mentioned by Marco Polo. The most proUable conclusion that h:w yet been arrived at is that So rodah, a small island on the west c oast of India, is the celebrated "Island of IV malea!, it being tho resort of dancing girls and women who retire to tlie place for a summer's outing after a hard wio ter's work on tho continent. As far as Marco Polo's "Island of Males" is concerned it is irretrievably lost, tho combined efforts of the geog raphers, the historians and tlie travelers not being equal to the task of bringing it from the mysterious mists which have hidden it for centuries. St. Louis Re public. Hoards ef Trade in Western Cities. The novelty in western life is tho in evitable combination of leading citizens pledged to promote the best interests of their town. Such a body is variously called a board of trade, a chamber of commerce or a commercial club. It is the burning glass which focuses the public spirit of the community. Its most competent officer is usually the highly salaried secretary. He does for his town what a railroad passenger agent or a commercial traveler does for his employers, that is to say, he secures business. He invites manufacturers to set up workshops in his city, offering a gift of land or of land and money or of exemption from taxation for a term of years. The merchants, and perhaps the city officials also, support his promiaes. In a South Dakota city I have known a fine brick warehouse to be built and given, with the land under it, to a wholesale grocery firm for doing busi ness there. In, a far northwestern city there was talk of sending a man east on salary to stay away until he could bring back capital to found a smeltery. These boards of trade often organize local companies to give a city what it needs. They urge the people to sub scribe for stock in associations that are to build electric railways, opera houses, hotels, convention halls, water supply and illuminating companies, often divid ing an acknowledged financial loss for the sake of a public gain. Thus thes boards provide the machinery by which the most ambitious, forward and enter prising communities in the world ex pend and utilize their energy. Julian Ralph in Harper's. Salamander from Artesian Wells. Mr. H. G. Zimmerman, of Albion, Ind., recQtly discovered in a trench leading from an artesian well a good sized and very lively mud puppy or wa ter dog. This well is eight miles noi th of Huron, S. D., and is 1,250 feet deep. Everybody was confident that the rep tile came from the well, as there is no other water for miles and miles, ii head was shaped like that of our com mon catfish, its color was similar to thai of the catfish, and it had bushy external gills, besides four legs. Many conjectures as to what the anl mal could be were made; some persons thought it principally fish, others lizard, and the most general conclusion was that the thing was a mongrel between the two. A genius (Proteus) belonging to the same family as the above (which we take to be Necturus), and found in caves in southwestern Austria, is blind and colorless. Mr. Zimmerman states specifi cally that the puppy found by him had u good pair of eyes and was dark in color. Lake Byron, twelve miles north of where this batrachian was found, is said to fur nish good fishing. Forest and Stream. Where Artists lit under. "I never saw an artist yet who could correctly paint a horseshoe," remarked a friend of mine, pausing before a Broad way picture store. "They invariably paint it with an equal number of nails on each side sometimes three, some times four, and even five nails. As a matter of fact, there are four on one 6ide and three on the other, the extra nail being on the inside of the foot, where the greatest strain comes." Which reminds me of the lines of a distinguished American poet in which he sweetly depicts the drowsy cattle op a summer's day lazily lapping the cool ing waters of the crystal stream. Tlie same peculiarity is also poetically at tributed to the horse and other animals, the model of the poet having probably been the house cat. New York Herald. Livery of Parlor Maids. English parlor maids wear a distinct livery, not often, though occasionally, seen in New York houses. This consists usually of a plain, long, black or dark woolen skirt, a loose, open jacket of the same material, and either a white vest with gilt or ornamented buttons or a vest made of livery stripes. With this are worn cap and apron. New Yori Times. A Puzzled Yankee. A story is told of Lord Grosvenor, who, while traveling in this country, was asked by a Yankee how he got his living. My lord replied that he did not work, as his father supported him. "What a dear old gentleman," said the Yankee; "how will you ever manage to live when he dies?"- Jtkm FraJicisco Argonaut. The Nitrate Fiatfls of Chill. The caliche, or raw nitrate of soda, 1s Dot equally distributed over tho pampai of Chili. The uiot abundant deposits wo KitiUfcUsl on the hIojm'h of tho hills, which probably formed the shores of t he jld lagoons. An exix-rt can tell from the external api aranc) of tho ground wlwro tho richest deposits are likely to ho found. The caliche itself is not found on the surface of the plain, but is cov ered up by two layers. The nppcnr.o. f. known technically as chiica, is of a f : i 1 blo . . ire, and consists of sand and ' !'" Hum, ". iilo the lower tho costra is a rocky conglomerate of clay, gravel and fragments of feldspar. Thecalicho varies in thickness from a few inches to ten or twelve fet, and rests on a soft htratum of earth called cova. The mode in which tho caliche is ex cavated is as follows: A hole is bored through the rhuca, costra and caliche layers till tho cova or soft earth is reached lielow. It is then enlarged un til it is wide enough to admit of a small boy being let down, who scrapea away tlw worth 1m -low the caliche so as to ; form a little hollovrcup. Into this a j charge of gnnpowder is introduced and nultsoquenUy expltxled. The caliche is 1 t hcii sejKirated by means of picks from1 the overlying co;tra and carried to the! refinerj'. Both in appearance and com- position it varies very much. In color it may lo snow whito, sulphur, lemon, orange, violet, bine and sometimes brvwn, like raw sugar. Blackwood's I Magazine. I The Age of Fresh KkC- As to just how okl the eggs may bo j when they get into tlie lutnds of tho con ! sumsr in this town is a matter for con I jecture, and a task that would cause : pleasant thrills in one inclined to mat he- ' matics. Any one who uaa ever spent any time in the country and mado a proper use of his eyes knows it is the habit of farmers to keep their eggs un til they have a certain quantity before disposing of them. The farmers may collect the eggs for an entire week and then dispose of them, or thoy may keep them for two weeks before tlie huckster gets them. That de ponds entirely upon the number of eggs which that particular farmer's hens will lay in a given period. The hucksters go about the country one or twice a week the dealers say. They gather the eggs here and there, and when they have gathered a certain quantity turn them over to the shippers. The shippers, in turn, hold the eggs until they, too, obtain a certain quantity and then consign them to the dealers in this city. When the eggs get here final ly the dealers say they have received a shipment of fresh eggs, and mean it too. The dealers maintain that an egg two weeks old in ordinary weather is just as good as an egg that is not more than twenty-four hours old. In fact, they make bold to say they would eat an egg two weeks old just as soon as one two hours old, and relish it just as much. New York Evening Sun. The Tear 1881. The year 1881 was a chronological oddity of the oddest kind, besides being a mathematical curiosity seldom equaled. From right to left and left to right it reads the same. Eighteen divided by 2 gives 9 as a quotient; 81 divided by 9 gives 9; if divided by 9 the quotient con tains a 9; if multiplied by 9 the product contains two 9s; 1 and 8 are 9; 8 and 1 ai e 9. If the 18 bo placed under the 81 and added the sum is 99; if the figures Ixj added thus 1 , 8, 8, 1 it wil 1 gi ve 1 8 as the result. Reading from tho middle from right to left or from left to right it is 1H. and 18 is two-ninths of 81. By adding, dividing and multiplying, 10 9s are pro duced, being one 9 for each year to th beginning of the last decade of the Nine teenth century. No wonder the fortune tellers, the as trologers and the mathematicians weave so many strange fancies around that curious combination of figures. It may have been what induced Mother Shipton to end her prophetic jingle with, "And at last the world to an end shall come in eighteen hundred and eighty-one." St. Louis Republic. A Very Old English Cloth. Fustian is a species of cotton clotL" j much used by the Normans, particularly by the clergy, and appropriated to ..ou.t orders for their cashubles. The Ci cians were forbidden to wear them made I of any material but linen or fustian. A stronger description was first manufac tured in England, at Norwicli, temp. Edward VI. It was much used for doublets and ) jackets in the Fifteenth century, at which time it appears to have been im ported from Italy. "Fustians of Naples" are named in a petition to parliament from the manufacturers of Norwich, 1 Philip and Mary, 1554. The name wa corrupted in England into "f ustianapes" and "fustian and apes," i. e., "fustian a Naples." Notes and Queries. Seared Burglars by Ills Voice. The ventriloquist, Fred Maccabe, has Dut his snecial eift to cood use. Retir- ing late one night he tossed about for ' some time unable to fall asleep, and j then, hearing footsteps down stairs, he j felt convinced that thieves had got into j the house. Crawling down stealthily close to where they were at work he. by means of ventriloquism, began a con versation and hullaballoo in many voices: "Here they are! Bring the lights! There they go! Shoot, shoot them quick!" Th. whole gang of burglars thereupon bolted in panic, leaving all their intended plun der behind. London Tit-Bits. A Sufficient Recommendation.
