It is feared if they come to Wal

made to hold the troops at Mullans

All the mills of the mines where

She Surprised the Youngster.
Two boys, not quite in their teens, got
into a quarrel in Twenty-third street,
near the Fifth Avenue hotel, the other
day, and after exhausting their respec
tive vocabularies they fell to pummeling
each other, viciously.. They were of the
toujjh siecies, lnt h physically and social
ly. Their altercation naturally attract
ed much attention in that thoroughfare,
and a score or more persons stopped to
watch the conflict. Nobody showed any
desire to interfere until along came a
bright and breezy tailor made girl, walk
ing as erect as a soldier and with a
quick, springy step. She took in the
tight at a glance, and stopping within
an arm's length of the combatants she
commanded them to desist. Each hoy,
with scant breath, conveyed to her in a
rude, slangy way his desire that she
should mind her own business.
"What's that you sayV" said the young
woman, as she stretched out two gloved
hands toward tho boys. 'Olind my own
business, eh?" and the next instant the
two hands were drawn back with a
vigorous jerk, Vith a hoy dangling from
each hand. With a firm grip on their
coat collars the athletic girl knocked
the heads of the bellicose boys together
as easily as if she were handling a pair
of three pound dumbbells. Then she
shook out what little breath had re
mained in the lads and threw them
away from her, one toward Fifth avenue
and the other toward Sixth avenue.
The lads gasped and made as much haste
as they possibly could to get away from
the pretty amazon. New York Times,

Tho school board of St. Paul has alol
ished tho distinction of sex in the mat
ter of salaries. Hereafter the women
teachers will receive, equal pay with tho
men. In establishing tin schedules of
future compensation for tho teachers of
tho high school and the manual labor
school no sex distinction is made. Here
after it will bo purely a question of ca
pacity, individuality aud eflieieucy. The
schedule adopted reads:
Grade 3 First year, ifS.lO; second
year, $1,0)0; third year, $1,000; fourth
year, $1,100; fifth year, $1,100; sixth
Grade 2 First year, $1,000; second
year, $1,100; third year, $1J0(5; fourth
year, $1,:!00; filth year, $1,400; sixth
Grade 1 First year, $1,000; second

In moving to a hew place of residence
we found on the premises a large cat
which had been left there by the former
occupant. She was not of the real do
mestic kind, but lived principally in the
barn, occasionally venturing into the
house to obtain her food. On one oc
casion, much to the surprise of my wife,
she came up to her and mowed several
times, turning each time toward tho
door leading to the barn. This she re
peated until Mrs. N was induced by
curiosity to follow her, when she led the
way to a barrel half full of straw, up
the side of which she climbed, all the
time mewing and looking at my wife,
and there were live kittens, cold and
dead. Mrs. N remarked, "They are
cold and dead, pussy," and tho cat went
She would sometimes scratch the chil
dren, and wo were fearful she would

The Tall Hat in England.
No one ever sa-s a good word for the
tall hat. It is reviled and abused on all
sides, and yet it holds its own against
all comers with an immobility worthy
of a better cause. Nearly all the syn
onyms and they are many adopted to
designate the tall hat are of a disrespect
ful character. Men liken it to a stove
pipe or chimney pot; the name "topper"
itself is decidedly lacking in dignity.
But though we are told that nothing
kills like ridicule, ridicule has wholly
failed to overthrow the dominion of the
tall hat. If the last man be an English
man, we can well imagine that his im
pavid front will face the ruin of the
universe beneath the shelter of a silken
tile. London Globe.
Images from Easter Island.
In the etlinological collection in the
University museum are two carved im
ages from Easter island. They are
made of hard native toromiro wood,
with eyes of bone and obsidian and
breastbone and ribs sharply defined.
These figttres have been called house
hold gods, "but it is said they were never
worshiped, although they are regarded
as representations of spirits. It is said
they were meant to represent deceased
chiefs and persons of note, and were
given a place of honor at feasts and cer
emonies. Philadelphia Ledger.
Jonrney of a Italloon.
A Harrisburg boy sent up in a balloon
on the Fourth of July last year a bottle
with his name and address in it, request
ing the finder to return it to him.
About ten days ago the bottle was
picked up by a gentleman on the shore
of Lake Superior, near Duluth, who im
mediately forwarded it to the lad.

Satan's Sign Manual.
A Bates county farmer saw a holt of
lightning strike in the center of one
of his fields, and being curious to see
the effects of the stroke visited the spot.
He found the subtle fluid had left its

that it was the sign manual of the arch
fiend himself. Kansas Citv Journal.

Several weeks ago, while they were
walking home from church one Sunday
night, they ran across a cat that was
wailing piteously on a doorstep. "Do
you hear that, Jim?" she exclaimed.

"1 here s something the matter with that

"Nonsense!" he replied. "Let's go on;
the cat will take care of itself."
"No; let's see what is the trouble."
Without more ado the young woman
ran up to the cat and was horified to
find that the animal had evidently been
run over by a wagon, as its 6pine was
dislocated and it was barely able to
crawl by dragging its hind legs.
"She's done for, sure enough," com
mented the Evanstonian. "She won't
last long. Come on, now."
The girl suddenly straightened up to
her full height. "Do you mean to say
that you would leave any animal to
suffer like this? There is a drugstore
on the next comer. Run over there and
buy an ounce of chloroform. Hurry,
now, there's a dear!"
"Nonsense! You don't suppose I'm
going into the business of doctoring sick
cats on the streets at night, do j-ou? Be
"And you don't suppose I'm going to
let this cat suffer here, do you? Go and
bring me a bottle of chloroform in

"But I insist."
"You certainly can't be in earnest?"
"I certainly am. If you don't do it I
will gq after it myself."
"You want to make me appear ridic
ulous?" "Hurry up, dear!"
For a moment the 3'oung man did not
stir. The blood rushed to his face, and
he began to grow angry. "See here!"
he exclaimed. "This is carrying mat
ters entirely too far. I will permit no
woman to make a fool of me like this.
I'll get your chloroform if you really in
sist, but I warn you you'll never have
a chance to do such a trick again. I will
never have anything to do with you
again. Mark that!"

for the truth, however, compels the ad

A Successful Ruse.
A couple of thirsty fellows who had
been loafing all the forenoon on the
quays at Stockholm were struck with a
brilliant idea. They borrowed an old
brandy keg and half filled it with water.
Then one of them slung it on his shoul
der and took it to the nearest spirit
vault, where he 6tated that he had been
sent by one of the skippers in port to
have the keg filled with brandy.
"The captain is sorry he only got it
half full yesterday and thinks it would
be better to have it filled to the top."
The keg was accordingly held under
the . tap till it was full, and the fellow
hoisted it on his shoulder, but as he was
about to walk off with it he was stop
ped by the clerk, who demanded pay
ment for the spirits.
"Hasn't our skipper a running ac
count?" "Certainly not."
"Bless me! I must have gone to the
wrong shop! There is nothing for it
but to empty half the keg back again."
This was no sooner said than done;
after which our hero merrily went in
search of his companion. Dagblaedt.
The Indian Attendants on the Queen.
The Indian attendants who now inva
riably accompany the queen are a source
of great trouble to the court officials
who have charge of the various arrange
ments. The Indians require to travel
by themselves in a separate saloon, and
their meals and all refreshments must
be served to . them in the train at the
stopping stations instead of their going
to the buffets with the Buite and the
Special arrangements have also to be
made for the Indians at the hotels, which
cause much bother and considerable ex

no duties and are perfectly useless ex

Taking Off a Horse Collar.
It is not always ignorant persons who
fail to observe closely. Coleridge and
Wordsworth took a drive with a friend.
After great difficulty the horse was un
harnessed, except they could not get the
collar off. One of them said it was a
"downright impossibility" and that the
horse's head must have grown since the
collar ova s put on. "La, master," said
a girl, "turn the collar upside down."
