In the daj'a when our grandmothers
w;ro girls tlicro came occasionally into
the family of a good deacon with uiucj
children a village dressmaker. She had
an iibHorbins intorext in other people's
affairH, and always looked forward with
particular pleasure to the week diirnuj
which fclie cat and fitted for tho deacon's
jrirls, knowing that Lin house wuk in
borne sort a social t enter, where hhe was
likely to hear plenty of fresh news'and
enf ertaininj? anecdotes.
One day she arrived late for her work,
and as she entered the house caught a
plimpse of the six daughters already as
Kemhled in the family eittintf room with
their gowns and patterns, their work
boxes and their new roll of "Injy mus
lin." But none of them were at work, for
one was telling the other a story of such
absorbing interest that they sat breath
less and spellbound, witli hands falhs
in their laps or needles suspended in ti!i
air. The sight was too much for the nc. -comer.
With one mitt on and one ol,
her unfastened pelisse dragging fro.ji
her shoulders, her bonnet askew and it
loosened strings streaming, she ap
peared suddenly among the astonished
girls, crying as she came:
"What? What? What is it? Who did
She was answered, although giving a
full answer involved the retelling of the
whole story, but her comprehensive in
quiry became thereafter a family by
word. Among the deacon's descendants to
this day if one shows signs of too great
inquisitiveness, it is sufficient for any
other member of the family to ask, with
a lift of the eyebrow:
"Who did what?' Youth's Compan
ion. Taking Thackeray Serionaly.
The obscurity in which Thackeray
has left the beginning of Newcome,
Bart., is an instance of his forgetfulness
about his people which, glaring as it is,
has hitherto escaped comment. Thomas
Newcome, the elder, is said to have
been "the-founder" of the Newcome
family. We are given to understand
that he was a foundling. Up to the
time of his demise there was no New
come, Bart. Mr. Newcome "might
have been made" one, but "he eschewed
blood red hands." As he said, "It
wouldn't do; the Quaker connection
wouldn't like it."
But his twin sons by his second wife,
Sophia Alethea Hobson, are stated to
have been called Hobson and Brian, re
spectively, "after their uncle and late
grandfather, whose name and rank they
were destined to perpetuate." The
"rank" is clearly the Newcome baron
etcy, but equally clearly the nncle and
grandfather must have been Hobsons
the founder of the Newcome family be
ing "himself alone." The twins at firs'
take order as above. Then Brian is de
clared to be the elder "by a quarter of
an hour." He is referred to as "Mr.
Brian." All at once he becomes "Sir
Brian," and "perpetuates" a "rank" to
which, for all that appears, he had no
right whatever. Notes and Queries.
Gold Fillings for False Teeth.
"Funny business, this," remarked a
dentist, turning from his workbench
and addressing the reporter. "What?"
"Filling false teeth. Every now and
then, when we make a set of false teeth,
we are asked to till two or three of the
front ones, so that the gold when the
wearer smiles will shine like a darkey's
heel. This takes away the counterfeit
appearance of the teeth to some extent.
It's a counterfeit upon a counterfeit.
"Persons who have this kind of work
done are willing to pay for it, and as
they always want a good showing f
gold, and are very particular as to the
appearance of the work, we have to
charge well for it. Somehow I don
like to do it. When we Lave made the
counterfeit teeth it alwa3's seems to me
that the deception has gone far
.enough." Indianapolis Journal.
The Maine man who cannot turn his
hand to another source of profit when
one fails him is a scarce article. An en
graver and carver of old time repute, in
the palmy days of Maine shipbuilding,
now a resident of Kittery, finding his
occupation gone as a sculptor cf figure
heads for vessels, is engaged in making
idols and graven images for the heathen!
He has a large order that will employ
most of his time for over two years,
from a missionary just returned from
Central Asia to this country. This mis
sionary, by the way, is "evidently some
thing of a Yankee himself. Kennebec
Johnson was a eulogist of the metropo
lis, and it was down Fleet street that ho
took his daily walk, which, owing to the
series of tasks he made compulsory on
himself, was a realty curious perform
ance. First, every post required to be
touched as he passed it; next it was a
point of honor to step exactly in the
middle of each paving slab, and lastly,
as he approached his destination, fv series
of graduated strides had to be employed
in order to reach the door with one par
ticular foot. Hygiene.

metal watch, keyless, and showing xiur.
its face, through sniall apertures, t::--day,

Oarrr Earthquake Effect.
An old sheep herder who dwells in a
ecluded f pot in the Sutter county buttes
made his annual visit to thie city
Wednesday, and from him we learn of
Bonee phenomenal and interesting cir
cumstances as a result of the earthquake
of Tuesday morning.
The lonely camp of the old shepherd
Is far up in the buttes, and is surrounded
with cliffs densely covered with massive
rocks and bowlders, which have with
stood the storms of ages and furnished
mills for the alorigiues to grind their
acorns and manzanita lorries into flour
from the remotest antiquity.
The Id herder had just emerged from
his cabin on this memorable morn, ami
was gathering kindling with which to
prepare his morning meal before turning
hi.-, llock onto the range for their day's
forage, and the wonderful sight he wit
nessed will never be forgotten. When
the treinhling liegan numerous sparks of
a bright blue color legan issuing from
the rocks, caused by the friction as they
were tossed to and fro by the surging
earth. As the tremors increased the
number of sparks did likewise, until at
one time the hillsides appeared as one
sheet of tire with millions of sparks dart
ing here and there as if dancing for joy.
As the trembling subsided the sparks
gradually disappeared, and in a moment
all was total darkness.
Shortly after the sun had started on
its journey in the eastern horizon the
attention of the old shepherd was at
tracted by the great branches of trees
which had fallen to the ground, and
those which remained intact seemed to
horrify the wild birds, as they would
attempt to alight, and then, with a
frightened scream, would pass rapidly
on, only to repeat the caper at the next
tree. An investigation proved that mil
lions of lizards and snakes had taken
refuge in the trees during their fright
and had become so numerous on the
projecting branches that they were
forced to succumb to the immense
weight and fell to the ground. This is
the only instance of damage reported in
Yuba or Sutter county. Marysville
A Useful Collector of Coals.
Perhaps the following anecdote may
be useful to readers whose houses and
gardens abut on railways. An eminent
"menagerist" lives in a suburb where
forty trains pass his garden every hour.
The weather was cold, coals were ex
pensive, for the recent strike was just
then at its height. The "menagerist,"
however, was a man of resource; he
conceived a plan for utilizing the forty
trains an hour.
From his menagerie in town he
brought a large Barbary ape, which un
fortunate animal was chained to the top
of a pole at the end of the garden. The
result was as pleasant as owning a col-,
liery, without any wages to pay or fear
of floods and explosions. Every stoker
and occasionally a driver on every
train that passed had a shot with a
lump of coal at the Barbary ape. The
B. A. was never hit, but the garden was
littered with coal, which the "menager
ist" triumphantly conveyed to his cel
lars. London Tit-Bits.
A Well Traveled Letter.
An old member of a well known Bres
lau institution sent on the 13th of May,
1891, a post card from Cassel, addressed
to "Dr. Emin Pacha, in German East
Africa." The card contained a poetical
allusion to the great traveler, and was
signed by a number of other members
of the institute. It arrived at Zanzibar
on the 14th of June, 1891, and at Baga
moyo on the 16th of that month. The
post card was then sent back to Dar-es-Salaam,
where it arrived on the 12th of
March of this year, and received the fol
lowing official comment: "Aus dein In
nern zuruck. Emin nicht erreichbar."
(Returned from the interior. Emin not
attainable.) On the 5th of May this
same post card found its way back to
Cassel and is now in the hands of the
sender. London News.
More Than a Hundred Fold.
Four years ago Miss Lena Woodard,
living on Thorn creek, Washington,
sowed the seed from one head of
barley. She harvested the crop with
a pair of shears and sowed the amount
received the next year, again har
vesting it with her shears. The third
crop her fathy cut with a grasi-scj-the,
getting enough barley from this
crop to 60w forty acres last spring, which
averaged forty bushels to the acre when
thrashed, making a total j-ield of 1,600
bushels from one head of barley in four
A Boy's Explosive Pocket.
Elias Mellinger, fifteen years old, wa3
in his father's quarry in Lancaster, and
put some powder in his pocket, in which
there were matches. The powder was
ignited by one of the matches taking
fire, and in a moment his clothing was
in a blaze. It was 1,000 feet distant to
his father's home, and the boy ran to it.
By the time he reached there his cloth
ing was entirely burned from his body,
and he was badly burned from his head
to his feet. Cor. Philadelphia Telegraph.
Shipping Live Lobsters to London.
Recently the steamer Inchulva sailed
for London with 3,000 live lobsters.
They are carried in four plate iron
tanks on the main deck, the tanks be

By means of a steam pump connected
with the sea valve in the engine room a

Hunter Bridges' Bear Average.
Nathaniel S. Bridges, who died re
cently in Charlotte, was one of the oldest
men in town, having nearly reached the
age of eighty-nine years. Mr. Bridges
was well known in eastern Washington

number of bears as marked the years of

lovers in Vermont and were engaged.
My parents were Irish emigrants and

was agreed that I should start out to

knew she was single and thinking of
me, though I never heard of her. She
now lives at Colorado Springs and has
been visiting with friends at Helena.
We met in the car at Ogden and recog

pleasant meeting. Before the train had

From the administrative report of the
Andaman Islands for the past official
year, which has recently been issued in
Calcutta, it appears that the aborigines
of the archipelago are disappearing so
rapidly that Mr. Portman states the
present generation may be considered as
the last of the great Andaman tribe. All
the people of Rutland Island and Port
Campbell are now dead and very few
remain in the South Andamans. Apart
from the mortality from infectious
diseases, it is said that the few children
who are now born do not survive.
Mr. Portman is endeavoring to keep
the tribe alive as long as possible, and
he is collecting all the children at his
house, where they are well fed and
cared for; but this can only postpone for
a short time the extinction of the race.
For many centuries the people lived
completely isolated from the rest of the
world, but, like the Pacific Islanders,
they seem unable to withstand contact
with external civilization. Galignani's
Kept General Grant's Horses.
Sixty long years, with their sunshine
and shadow, have passed since Mr.
John T. Price, the well known livery
man, first saw the light of day, and all
day Mondav he was kept busy receiving
congratulations on his golden jubilee.
Mr. Price was born in Alexandria on
April 11, 1832.
Having been in business at his present
stand for twenty-seven years he is full
of reminiscences of great Americans
who patronized his fliers. Among these
was General Grant, who came in one
day and said: "Price, I want to take a
spin over the road today. Let me have
one of your fastest trotters." When the
general returned he was profuse in ";is
praise of the horse he had driven, and
"Price, that fellow was chain light

The Dog Knew Where to Jump.
A very knowing dog got into the train
which was coming down from up river,
at Great Works, recently. The train
started up and the dog still staid
aboard. The train began to move faster
and faster, until it was going at the rate
of twenty miles an hour. The dog did
not dare to jump. The animal got out
on the lowest step. At last the train
reached a swamp. He then gave a
tremendous leap and landed in safety in
the soft mud and water. The dog was
uninjured and ran back. Bangor News.
The Turtle Seed Tree.
Among a collection of curious plants
recently received at the Kew Gardens,
England, is a specimen of a curious tree
from the Solomon islands. It is believed
to be a new genus of the order of Sapo
tacea?, to which the sapodiller of Florida
belongs. The tree is known to the na
tives of the Solomon islands as the ''tur
tle seed tree," on account of the close
resemblance which the seeds bear to a
turtle. London Letter.
