A METROPOLITAN WILDCAT.
A Cltjr Woman's Remarkable EijicrlcnM
with a Strauge l'uasy.
A New York woman had an experi
ence a few nights ago which she will
not soon forget one which, considering
her environment, was very surprising.
Her home is a ground apartment, occu
pying two floors, however, in ono of the
high class apartment houses in Fifty
ninth street overlooking the park. The
library is on the second floor, and in
this room she was seated one night
when a peculiar noise from the family
parrot, who was in his cage in an oppo
site room, attracted her attention.
Thinking the bird was merely rest
less and wanted his cage covered, she
picked up a soft woolen couch cover
and started across the hall. At the
threshold of the second room she saw
crouching on the top of the parrot's
cage a gray cat, which had succeeded
by his weight and clawing in inclining
the cage almost to the tipping angle,
poor Poll meanwhile traveling up and
down the upper side in a frenzy of
fright. The unequal struggle could not
have lasted many seconds 'longer, and,
urged by the crisis, though really
alarmed at the unusual size and fierce
appearance of the cat, Poll's mistress
advanced into the room shaking the
couch cover and attempting, after the
manner of women, to "6hoo" the cat
She had half crossed the apartment
when the animal made a spring at her,
and but ' for her quick movement in
covering her head with the couch cover
which she held her face would have re
ceived the brunt of the attack. As it
was, the cat clawed violently for an in
stant at the mass of woolly material in
which he was enmeshed; then, aided by
the desperate push which the now ter
rified woman gave him, leaped to the"
floor and dashed into the library.
Mrs. recovered her senses and
closed the door between herself and the
cat, then violently rang the bell for as
sistance. The. maids responded and,
after carrying Poll to a place of safety
in a remote room, an attempt was made
to dislodge the cat from the library. At
sight of her pursuers the creature began
to rush about, jumping through a brass
screen with force enough to break it,
knocking over bric-a-brac and loose'
books, and ending by scaling the win
dow casing as if it were a tree and run
ning out on the bare curtain pole. From
this high perch he glared down at those
beneath him until Mr. 's arrival
shortly afterward. He was then prod
ded down and leaped through a window
opened for him to the pavement below,
darting off to the park as soon as he
reached the ground.
Policemen and others familiar with
Central park say that 6tray city cats
often find homes in its sequestered
nooks, growing wild and raising prog
eny that become almost as fierce and
terrible as a genuine wildcat. In this
instance the animal was doubtless driven
from its haunts by hunger, and, getting
in on the ground, floor, was attracted up
stairs to the parrot's cage by the scent
of the bird and its food. Her Point of
View in New York Times.
A Lucky Clerk.
Half a century ago a clerk in New
York city was wont to take down the
shutters of the store at precisely 6 o'clock
in the morning. While he was taking
them down, rain or shine, a certain old
gentleman almost always passed by on
his way to his place of business. The
old gentleman smiled so benignantly
upon the young man that a hearty and
familiar "good morning" became nat
ural to both.
Month after month this mutual greet
ing continued, until one morning the old
gentleman was missed and he never ap
peared again. He was dead. Not long
afterward the enterprising and faithful
clerk was waited upon by the adminis
trator of the old man's estate and in
formed that his store and stock of goods
had been willed to him.
Attracted by the youth's promptness
and fidelity, the old gentleman had in
quired into his character and circum
stances and was satisfied that he could
leave his property to no one so likely to
make good use of it as the clerk whe
took down the shutters at just G o'clock,
summer and winter.
Through this legacy the clerk was in
troduced into a profitable business at
once and he afterward became one oi
the most wealthy, benevolent and re
spected merchants of the city. Youth's

think how much of the language I un
derstood. At any rate, I grew fond oi

folio in which I read, my heart warm-,

With Marlowe it was otherwise. With
him I grew acquainted during the mosl
impressible and receptive period of my
youth. He was the first man of genius

they said he was a deboshed fellow? nay.

Iefiniiig Cocktail in 'ourt.
A witness in a case-recently 011 trial
in one of the courts in liosloii testified
that the defendant was not a drinking
man "and only txk cocktails." Judge
Blank, who presided, is a teetotaler.
Ho noticed among the Hpectators a well
known physician, a loiivivaut, and at
the recess called him up to the 1ench
'iiid asked him to define a cocktail.
"A cocktail," resixmded the doctor,
"is a feather dipped "in an emollient j
which is applied to a dry or irritated
throat for the removal of dryness or ir

DuHtstornis on the Atlantic.
Ships crossing the Atlantic in the lati
tude of the Cape Verde islands often en
counter duststorins of longer or shortei
duration. One of the most remarkable
of these paradoxical storms swept down
on the German steamer Argentine in
the summer of 188'J. It lasted for foui
days, during which time the air was so
full of dust particles as to make high
noonday almost as dark as the darkest
midnight. When the "storm" was at its
height the sailoi-s were kept busy shov
eling the dust from the steamer's decks.
The machinery was made to work with
great difficulty, and at one time the cap
tain, J. G. Scheon, had grave apprehen
sions that they would bo dashed upon
the Cape Verde reefs. St. Louis lie
public. Aurieut Superstition.
The ancients peopled all distant lands
with monsters and all distant seas with
horrors. Unknown and distant coun
tries were, to their superstition, peopled
with "gorgons, hydras and chimeras
dire." The distant seas were filled with
monstrous dragons and sei-pents, of
which the sea serpent is today, perhaps,
a survival. The unknown oceans were
filled with whirlpools that sucked in
mariners, who were sacrilegious enough
to approach them, to an awful death.
Perhaps tliese superstitions, as much
as any one thing, kept the world for so
many centuries an unexplored and un
known waste. Yankee Blade.
A Heady Keply.
Foote's ready reply to the caution,
"Your handkerchief, sir, is hanging out
of your pocket," was of high merit, both
from the surprise and for the cordial
way in which the caution was accepted,
"Thank you, sir; you know the company
better than I do." Gentleman's Maga

Many a deed of heroism is performed
by the light keepers in Uncle Sam's em
ploy. Scores of people have been saved
from the wreck's by the hardy mariners
of the New South shoal lightship, who
never hesitate to launch a boat in the
most violent storm for the purpose of a
rescue. On one occasion twent3-seven
persons were snatched by them from a
watery grave when the City of Newcas
tle ran upon the Nantucket banks and
sank stern foremost.
On another day they caught sight of a
black object driven before the gale, and
putting forth in pursuit of it rescued a
man on a raft, whom they found seated
upon the corpse of a fellow castaway,
his headburied in his hands and hope
less of the aid which came at last.
Lettuce fritters are a delicate break

make a moderately stiff batter. Drop
by the spoonful in hot lard, or fry in
olive oil, just enough to keep the skillet
