and died yesterday from the effects
of the blow.
General John II. Stibbs, the chief
pension examiner at Chicago, has
just unearthed a large pension
fraud. It appears that Dr. John S
Taylor was a surgeon in the Twen
ty-third Illinois volunteer infantry.
He lost his health in the service of
his country and in March, 18G9, made
an application for a pension. Two
months later Dr. Taylor was ad
judged insane and sent to the asy
lum at Jacksonville, Illinois. Since
then he has beec hopelessly insane
and has been by turns confined as
a pauper in the asylums at Dunning
and Kankakee, where he now is, a
man sixty-seven years of age. His
wife, Mrs. Alice L. Taylor, who lives
at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and who has
been prominent as a lecturer and
writer on temperance, has been
drawing her husband's pension of
$72 a month since 187-4, notone penny
of which has been spent for the ben
efit of the insane man. In all she
has received from the government
$16,1564. Mrs. Taylor invested it in
securities and at the advice of Dis
trict Attornev Milchnst. she re
turned $8,1G0 to be spent for the ben
efit of Mr. Taylor.

BEFORE HE THOUGHT.
The Poor Fellow Was Really Hungry aod

Tom De Witt, Jack Fonl and Ed Still-
man had been living on cigars and hoie
for two days and were nearly starved to
They had decided to honor some of
their Vassar friends with a visit, at the
time of the commencement, when the
college discipline is somewhat relaxed;
but a short stay in the place had con
vinced them that the fare of the Pough
keepsie boarding house was inadequate
to satisfy Murray Hill appetites.
So whon, after a morning drive, the
girls announced that they intended to
effectually silence the current feeble
sneer at the cooking abilities of fair col
legians by giving the party a lunch pre
pared by themselves, there was joy in
the hearts of the men. At the word
"lunch" Tom looked at Ed and Ed look
ed at Tom, and" Jack looked straight
into the face of the prettiest girl and
said most felicitously, "Oh, thank you!
It was to be served in one of the rooms
at 2 o'clock; "in" the meantime they
would stroll about the grounds and get
up an appetite."
At last the lunch came. It was a
'pink" one. The table was artistically
and tastefully decorated. Big pink bows
and bunches of roses covered the cloth,
and elaborately painted dinner cards
directed the guests to their seats.
As course succeeded course the men
began to wonder where the substan
tial were coming in, and to realize that
a third disappointment had fallen to
The little tubs of deviled salmon, the
impalpable croquettes with tender as
paragus tips, the tiny dabs of shrimp
salad in the center of eool, green lettuce
leaves, the salted almonds, the olives,
the meringues glace and the strawberry
sherbet were all very dainty and deli
cate, but not particularly satisfying to
earthly mortals whose thoughts were
running on thick, 3uicy English chops
and big pewter mugs the size of an in
And when as a finishing touch cute
little packages of tutti frutti, cunningly
tied up in pink ribbons, were passed
around on a silver plate, the men felt
unequal to further conversational effort.
A few hours after the feast Tom De
Witt remarked that it was time for
them to be starting, as thejT expected to
catch the 7:50 train for New York.
"Oh, you'd better stay over until the
10:10," remonstrated a sweet sophomore;
"you will just spoil your evening. What

"Oh," he said earnestly, "we'll go

since we have been in this town!"
For a moment three girls stared
blankly at each other, and then the
young men gathered their hats and
canes together and, saying hurried "good
nights," sped, with horizontal coat tails,

How the Cobra Gives 'Warning:.
The most dangerous reptiles of India
and Africa are the cobras. No snakes,
not even rattlesnakes, are more dreaded,
and with reason. As the rattlesnake
warns the ear by its significant "rattle,"
so the cobras warn the eye by the mode
in which they expand the upper part of
the body when irritated. This expan
sion is produced by a sudden movement
of the ribs of that region of the body.
Usually they incline backward, but the
animal, when irritated, makes them
stand out at right angles to the body,
nd so, of course, forces outward the
6kin which covers them. Thus the neck,
or part just behind the head, becomes
greatly expanded and flattened, as ib
also does, though in a less degree, in the
Australian blacksnake. This expansion
io called a hood, and so the animals are
called hooded 6nakes. In some of them
there is on the back of the hood a dark
mark, something like a pair of spec
tacles, and they have therefore been
called spectacle snakes. Quarterly Re
view. How Hawthorne Wrote.
We never think of local color in con
nection with Hawthorne. Apparently
he didn't need to put it on. Perhaps he
would not have understood about it.
He might have thought that the coun
terpart of the literary term (local color)
applied socially would refer to the
women who paint, the term has such an
artificial sound. One has an idea of a
colored photograph; the local color is
not a part of the substance, but is im
posed. Hawthorne was not conscious of
any necessity of giving local color to his
creations. He wrote of that into which
he was born, and his creations, even
when they were in foreign settings,
glowed with that internal personality
which is never counterfeited by veneer
ing. Charles Dudley Warner in Har
per's. Definition of a Journalist.
"A man of literature compelled by
circumstances to be also a man of busi
ness." That is the definition of a jour
nalist, given by Mr. Sala. It is a good
enough definition in its way, though it
cannot be considered as invariably ac
curate. There are a good many soi
disant journalists who are certainly not
"men of literature," and a good many
more, whose claim to the title of jour
nalist is unquestioned, who are certainly
not "men of business." London Globe.
Nearly 100.000,000 a Year.
Mr. James Wright, scond vice pre.si
dent of the Innian line, says that when
the end of 192 come at least 100,000
people will have left for Europe from
all parts of this country during the
year. Half of them will sail during the
fifteen weeks of the season, from April
to August. Some travelers will carry
hundreds of dollars in their pocketbooks
to 8end where others carry thousands.
Nine-tenths of those hundreds and thou
sands will be transferred to foreign own
ers before the tourists return.
Even the money spent for passage and
during the vo3ages must be counted in
that which bids goodby to this land of
lilerty, or the great steamship compa
nies are, with one exception, foreign
corjorations. Including tips and fees
these corporations will take an average
of $160 from each passenger for the
round trip. The majority will pay less,
b 't there will be enough rich men who
who pay a good deal more to bring the
mean amount up to that figure.
The money which each tourist carries
with him is harder to estimate. A for
eign exchange clerk 6aid that the letters
of credit issued by them to European
travelers average about 600, or $3,000
each; but this is above the ordinary fig
ure, and of course this in many cases
covers a party of four or five. Eight
hundred dollars is estimated as the aver
age amount taken by each passenger in
the cabin. This makes the total average
expenditure of the average European
traveler $960. When this is multiplied
by the estimated total of these travelers
the result is astounding.
It is $96,000,000.
Ninety-six millions of dollars carried
from America to Europe in a single year
by travelers alone! If this were saved
for a few years Uncle Sam might buy a
good slice of Europe and bring it over
here . for exhibition purposes. New
The Lenten offerings of the Sunday
6chool children of the Protestant Episco
pal church throughout the United States
thus far received in behalf of the gener
al board of missions are largely in excess
of those for the same period in 1891. In
the two weeks immediately succeeding
Easter 1,137 Sunday schools sent in $ J6,
699, and it is believed a total of $100,000
will have been received when all of the
4,000 schools in the country shall have
been heard from. This is double the
gum donated last year.
The Lenten Sunday school offering is
a feature of the work of the lioard of
missions. Just before Lent this year the
board sent a package of folding paste
board savings banks to each Sunday
school superintendent for distribution
among his pupils for the reception of the
children's savings during the fasting sea
son. No sooner had Easter passed than the
little banks legan to arrive at the offices
of the board in the Bible House.
The twenty-five young women in Bish
cp Leonard's school in Reno, Nev., sent
$250. One school sent in 5,000 pennies
and another 10,000 pennies.
It will be July before all the returns
will have been received. New York
Rothley Temple, Lord Macaulay's
birthplace, is for sale by public auction.
It is an old manor house, some six miles
from Leicester, and there the historian
was born at the end of the year 1800. It
cannot be said that Rothley Temple de
rived more than nominal luster from
the association, for Macaulay left Leices
tershire before he had left infancy,
and Birchin Lane, in the city, was the
home of his earliest childhood. Instead
of a manorial park he had Drapers' gar
dens for a playground, until he went tt
live in the old High street at Clapham.
The Leicestershire manor, however,
has many historical interests besides this
one, and a Thirteenth century chapel of
the Knights Templars is attached to the
estate. It is a wealthy manor, too, for
900 acres produce 2,000 of annual rent;
and, moreover, it is at the headquarters
of the famous Quorn Hunt, -and in the
heart of some famous scenery. London
Cost of an Epidemic
Dr. Thresh, the medical officer for the
county of Essex, having obtained full
returns of the late epidemic of influenza,
estimates that no less than 540 persons
died under the immediate attack, and
that no fewer than 1,400 deaths occurred
in the county from its direct or indirect
influence. The monetary loss for th
two months during which the epidemic
prevailed he states at no less than 50,
000, on the basis of the loss of wages of
adults calculated at twelve shillings a
week. He adds: "I am, however, afraid
that had the county suffered from an
epidemic among cattle, causing in the
time the same number of deaths and in
dicating the same pecuniary loss, the
alarm produced would have been greater
and more permanent." British Medical
A 100,000 Pound Chip of a Rock.
A stone quarry company of Bedford,
Ind., has shipped the largest single
block of stone ever quarried and shipped
in the United States. The block was 12
feet 8 inches long, 6 feet 3 inches high
and 6 feet 3 inches wide, containing 500
cubic feet, and weighed 100,000 pounds.
The car on which it was shipped had to
be ordered specially for it, and was the
car that was built for the purpose of
transporting the thirty-foot cannon sent
by the government to the Pacific coast a
few months since. The stone is perfect,
not having a flaw or defect, Indianapo
