comiHe andbin grimly hnmorons b:il
lada in honor of the eaillotine wheu in
their cups. Theno ix'ojilo will hardly,
however, go o far as to celebrate the
hundreltli anniversary of the tirst execii
tion in Paris by the instrument of de
capitation which the "Constituante"
adopted on the motion or Dr. Gnillotin,
who had Keen the machine at w-rk in
Italy. The doctor's idea in introducing
the lM)is de justice was purely philan
thropise, for he wanted to do away with
the blow tortures inllicted ujK.n crim
inals. On May 27. lT'Ji, the hrtit crim
inal, a highwayman, was executed 011
the Place do Greve, now the Place
de THotel tie Ville. This is the date
given by Larousse, but other authorities
htat that Monday, April 2.", was the
ItHUh amiiver.-iary of tho first executim
by the guillotine in Paris.
In any case the terrible instrument
was destined to Iks busy during 170:1 on
the heads of jK-rsons more illustrious
than the common highwayman named
Peletier. For this reason some of the
modern sympathizers with the Terror
ists. Huowsiiitr them to have the blood-
i thirsty intention of celebrating the cen
tenary or tho guillotine, wouia no
inclined to fix the date of their com
memorative ceremony on Jan. 21 next.
There can he no doubt about that day,
as it would be tho 100th anniversary of
the execution of Louis XVI on the Fpot
marked by the obelisk in the Place de la
Concorde, as the spacious plot of ground
once termed the Place Louis XV, and
afterward the Place de la Revolution, is
nowadays known. Paris Cor. Loudon

Mr. John Older and partner were fish
ing with their large net on the beach
five miles lelow Pablo when they saw
an immense dark object about 100 feet
ahead come slowly out of the ocean and
walk leisurely up on tho beach.
They at once started to capture the
monster, which proved to be a turtle,
tho li!;e of which was never seen on tho
lieach before. It measured 7 feet 0
inches in length and 2 feet 10 inches
across the back. It had a beautiful
black color on the back. The belly is
spotted like a rattlesnake, and it will
weigh at leaet 800 pounds. 1 he monster
was .Vaulod up by JUr. unttona team,
and can be seen at the Arcade.
This no fit-li story, as will bo seen by
the following affidavits:
"We, the undersigned citizens of
Pablo, do certify that the above account
of the capture of the said turtle, or
whatever it may be, is true. II. M.

Challearloc st Critical JoarmaJlat.
A very slight and polite criticism in
dulged in at the expense of a cavalry of
ficer who was riding about a week ago
at the horw bhow ha assumed the pro
ixa tions of a serious event. The ofiicer
in q.ier'.iou sent a letter to the writer
sayiug that he could understand the
criticising the horsemanship of jockeys
and grooms, but that he had no business
it p;t-s any remarks on that of "gentle
men or officers." lie forbade tho jour
nalist to mention his inline, ami wound
up by adding vhat his sole right was
that of the stronger and that he would
prove it if the offense were repeated.
Tho journalist in a second paragraph re
marked that he did not think ho had
acted improperly in criticising tho per
formances of horsemen who rode iu ;
public place to which admission was ob
tained by payment, and, ref erring to the I
letter, said he could not ladieve that it :
had been penned by a French ofiicer, i
and was convinced that it was a forgery. !
Thereupon the cavalry ofiicer sent two i
of his friends to the journalist with a
hostile message, and in the duel that ;
followed he wounded him in the arm.
He thus proved that he was "Le plus
fort." But the affair is creating a great
sensation, the prevailing opinion being
that the argument employed by the ofii-
cer was. to say the least, utterly illogi
cal in fact, this unlucky episode has
brought once more on tho tapis tho
vexed question of the exjedieiicy of
military men displaying their prowess
at races and horse shows. Paris Cor.
Will Live In GIumm House.
At the city of Dinard, in the depart
ment of Ille-et-Vilaine, France, there
lives a man distinguished both for his
originality of ideas and for tho fullness
of his money bags. He has been speak
ing and teaching for a long time ujon
the necessity of men beginning to lead
lives of greater purity, so that they need
not be afraid of having all their deeds
under the incessant supervision of so
ciety. He is himself willing to submit
to the trial aud wants to hnd others to
do the same, lie has determined to
have a three story house built all of
glass. A dwelling of such transparency
would not not only allow its inhabitants
at all times a splendid prospect in every
direction upon the beautiful country
surrounding the place, but also expose
the minutest details of the daily life of
the people in the house to tho inspection
of the entire city.
The originator of the idea has found
an architect willing to build tho house on
condition that ho receives payment in
advance. But there is 110 renting agent
that will take the agency for it. If it is
to bo a lodging house for bachelors, they
say, thev may be ablo to do somethin;
with it, but they cannot hnd a temale,
thev think, that would consent to live
in a glass house. Nevertheless tho old
crentleman is determined to realize his
idea. Chicago Herald.

Slavery in the Pacific.
That slavery still exists in the Pacific
ia evidenced by the fact that the steamer
Jloneserrat is fitting out for a blackbird
cruise, and will sail shortly for Gilbert
island, whence it will carry a hold full
of natives o work on the Guatemala
All this is to be done under the guise
of an equitable contract.
Last September the bn; Tahite, load
ed with 100 Gilbert islanders, and noto
riously a slaver, was blown off its course
and put in at Duke's bay. Learning that
it was likely -to bo seized, its captain
put hurriedly to sea and the next that
was heard of it was when sighted bot-
torn up Oil tlie coast, an its crew ana
carco havinsr perished. The same have
planned the Moneserrat's slaving cruise,
hoping to recoup themselves.
There will be no dimculty in getting
a cargo, as agents at the island are now
at work inducing the natives to sign
contracts. Washington Star.

Lovers of the beautiful, the beautiful

To say that it is a blaze of color is to

Woodchoppers on Dr. Price's Lenape
farm report that squirrels are very
numerous among the trees. When the
choppers began last fall there were
several acre3 of trees standing and the
squirrels were not numerous, but as the
trees were cut, a few at a time, the
little animals were driven from one
place of refuge to another until all were
gathered into a small space, and the lew
remaining trees are filled with them. A
man who had been working among
them says some of the hollow trees are
packed so full of squirrels that the tim
bers creak every time the animals draw
a deep breath.
. In the morning when the men go out
to work they are met at the railway
tracks by the knowing little animals,
which feel secure because tbe game
laws protect them at this season. A
gentleman who has seen them says that
they do not offer to carry the kettles of
the men, although they do not object to
sharini? the contents. West Chester
A Sad Story.
A contemporary relates that there was
a tragedy in the composing room of a
Philadelphia paper the other day. The
compositors were busy at their cases
when one of their number, a young
woman, fainted away, and she was con
veyed to her home. Another compositor
finished her "take,' which proved to be
an account of a suicide in another city.
There were forty compositors in the
room, but this particular copy fell to
this particular young woman, and the
suicide was her affianced sweetheart.
A Tame lii-kliii.
Tlie extraordinary right of a duckling
that has just shed its Hlull following a
young woman about the house with all
the alFection of a pet dog is a domestic
wonder in the family of Mrs. Carr. Ever
since Easter morn the neighbors have
been dropping in to witness the spec
tacle, and the fame of the Mti-iiihir at
tachment has attracted attention nnong
people who are interested m natural
phenomena of every description.
The little duckling has been m tne
family since Easter Sunday, when u
was brought as a gift to Mrs. Carr's
baby daughter, Strena, aged four year.--,
who was delighted with her new pet.
The duck at once struck up a long
friendship for the domestic, Mary Mc
Cullough, and has been the young wom
an's constant companion ever since.
Whenever Mary speaks the duck re
sponds with the piping salutation and
waddles after the young woman wher
ever she goes. The most astonishing
thing about this freak of nature is that
if any other inmate of the household
attempts to induce it to answer, the
webfooted prodigy maintains a solemn
silence, but Mary has only to utter a
word w'aen the quacking begins and is
kept up until she has ceased speaking.

of the frontier to acts of admirable sympathy.

him and that the homestead shall al

the story of the death of a Long Island
physician from blood poisoning result
ing from an ingrowing toe nail. A well
known surgeon chiropodist said the
other day to the reporter: "The death of
that Long Island doctor is not the first I
have heard of from the same cause.
"The cause of the disease is comnfon
and painful and usually directly trace
able to narrow toed shoes. It causes
pain as severe as a toothache and not
infrequently, when neglected, results in
blood poisoning. I know of an opera
tion for ingrowing toe nail in an English
hospital where the patient suffered so
much pain that they gave him a-mixture
of ether and chloroform. The operation
was successful, but when it was finished
the physicians found that their patient
had died from the chloroform." New

threatened with extinction in the Aus
trian Alps. In the Salzburg district the
success of this legislation is, unfortu
