UNDER A MOVING TRAIN.
Sensations of a Bfan YFlio Thought flla
Iat Hour f I ad Come.
To fall unflpr a running railroad train,
to Ho on the rail and ee death approach
ing one at the rate of fifteen miles or so
an hour and only a few feet distant, Is
an experience not given to many to lo
able to relate. Yet thia Ls what hap
pened to a Chicago man.
IIow did it happen? What were yon
thinking about?" he was asked the other
"Well," he replied, "I had no time to
find out how it happened, but I do re
member a good many things that 1
thought of while it was hapiening.
Now it seems utterly im08sible to me
that snch a flood of thorghta could flash
through my brain and leave their indi
vidual and distinct impressions as did
in the almost immeasurable fthort space
of time that I lay on the rail in front of
those wheels. It is said that just at the
moment of one's death the whole doings
of a lifetime are held up for review in
less time than it takes to wink one's
eye. I can readily believe it.
"In less than a Beeond I thought of
the many railroad accidents of which 1
had read. It flashed through my mind
that I had often seen men credited with
willful negligence or reckless intention
in allowing themselves to be killed or
maimed, and there I was on the track
ready to furnish another illustration.
Yes, nir; there I lay, flat on my back on
the rail and saw the wheels of the after
truck of the car come rolling along and
only a few feet away. It almost seemed
as if I felt them crushing and grinding
my bones, yet I had, it seems, time to
think also of how easuy a fellow gets
"I thought how foolish it was to ac
cuse others of foolhardiness in getting
run over when I myself was about to
become a horrible example. I thought
of how often I had 'let up lightly en
gineers and conductors and helped to
take the blame from them and put it on
fthe fellow who got killed. 13ut my
greatest regret, m the time 1 had to
think, was that I had so often adversely
criticised the man who got run over.
"Strange as it may seem, however,
these were not half my thoughts. I
realized that 1 was yet alive, in the best
of good health, every bone and limb
sound, so to seak, and the next instant
I would, I felt, bo ground iirto pieces
and my flesh and bones spattered over
the railroad track. There was no power
in the world to help me, so it seemed;
not all that the engineers or conductors
or brakemen could do would be of any
avail. Then it flashed through my mind
that I was on the brink of the other
world and I had not even a chance to
make one repentant prayer. I wondered
what it would mean for me.
"Wiule tnese ideas were running
through my mind I must have made
some sort of an effort to escape. I have
no knowledge of how I did it, but I did
roll off the rail outward. The wheel
caught my heel, though at first it seemed
as if my foot was cut off above the
ankle and I was powerless to move it
I managed to get onto my right foot
and balance inyself on that for a second,
to get my thoughts together as to what
I shoud next do. It has taken me ten
or fifteen minutes to tell this thing, but
it did not, I should judge, from the rate
the train was going, take anything like
a second of time for it all to happen."

At the battle of Seven Pines or Fair
Oaks the Fifth New Jersey, in conrec-
tion with the regiments of the Second
brigade, and others, ably attested the
universal confidence reposed in them by
their commanders. Senator Wade, at
Bull Run, said, "Give us a brigade of
these Jerseymen and we'll beat the en
During the engagement of June 1 a
Union soldier had his leg shot off by a
ball from the enemy s artillery.
Captain Ramsey ordered one of his
men (an Irishman from New Jerse7) to
assist the wounded man to the rear.
Pat, while giving the necessary assist
ance, asked the man how and where he
had been wounded.
"My leg was shattered by a cannon
ball during the last attack," was the re

Upon arriving at the temporary hospi
tal one of the surgeons, after looking at
tne man, said: "What did you bring
tms man here for?
"Sure, Captain Ramsey tould me to,"
"Why, the man is dead; his head is
completely shattered from his body," re-
puea ine aoctor.

How Chinamen Are Shaved.
The Chinese of San Francisco shave
nearly every day. A queer little razor
it is that they use, too. It is in no re
spect like our razor, except in the matter
of the keenness of its edge. It is a wee
bit of a blade, nicely curved into a semi
circle. With this tool the Chinese bar
ber scrapes the almost hirsuteless face
of his customer and then shaves him
around the ears and down the neck to
the first bone of the spinal column. The
rounded point of the razor is also insert
ed into the Celestial ear, and every am
bitious hair that dares to show itself in
the aricular lobe is clipped before it pro
ceeds very far. The Chinaman, you
know, is scrupulously cleanly about his
ears. A growth of hair in them is con
sidered a mark of low birth or of care
lessness or ungeuteel habits. St. Louis

Such old cities aro still to be seen in In

Closely akin tt them are those walled
towns standing on the canals of mid
China, passing through which, say at
the close of day, when every tower and
every roof stands out clearly cut against
the brilliant western sky and we are
challenged by a grotesque figure, armed
with a spear and probably wearing
armor, the illusion is complete, and for
the moment we find it hard to realize
that we are traveling at the end of tho
Even in much changed Japan there
are old cities which still retain their walls
of the age of feudalism, and in the very
heart of the capital the imperial palace
is surrounded by the same quaint forti
fications which in old troublous times
made it an imperium in imperio, al
though the walls are crumbling and tho
gates are never shut, and the moats have
been abandon ?d to the lotus and to carp

Cor. Chicago Herald.
In 15S0 the Azores came under the
power of Spain, and in the history of
the next twenty years their name is fre
quent as the favorite battleground of
the English and Spanish fleets. Tho
partiality was, indeed, mainly on the
side of the former, and for a good rea
son. These islands lay right in tho
track of all vessels sailing to and from
that enchanted region known then to
all men as the Spanish Main. On the
highest peak of Terceira, whence in
clear weather the sea could be scanned
for leagues around, were raised two col
umns, and by them a man watched
night and day. When ho saw any sails
approaching from the west ho set a flag
upon the western column, one for each
sail; if they came from the east a simi
lar sign was set up on the eastern col
umn. Hither in thoso days came up oxit of
the mysterious western seas the great
argosies laden with gold and silver and
jewels, with silks and spices and rare
woods, wrung at the cost of thousands
of harmless lives and cruelties unspeak
able from the fair lands which lie be
tween the waters cf the Caribbean ,-ea
and the giant wall of the Andes. And
hither, when England too began to turn
her eyes to El Dorado, came the great
war galleons of Spain and Portugal u
meet these precious cargoes and convoy
them safe into Lisbon or Cadiz beforo
those terrible English sea wolves could
get scent of the prize. Macmillan'a
A gentleian who believed that to aa
important extent clothes made the man,
even when the man is a royal personage,
visited the Comte de Chambord at Frohs
dorf a few years ago. The Comte do
Chambord was the grandson of Charle3
X, the last Bourbon king of France, and
the French Roj alists called him Henri
V, and hoped, until his death, in 1883, to
restore him to the throne. The mar
quis, of whom this story is told, was a
Parisian, a man of fashion and an ar
dent Royalist. The Comte de Chambord
was glad cf an opportunity to talk over
political affairs with a man who must
know what was going on in Paris; so
after a few minutes' chat he said: "Mar
quis, it is not often that I have a chance
to talk with any one so well informed
ou the signs of the times in Paris as
yourself. Now in case I return to Psris.
what would you advise me to do?"
He waited for a bit of profound io-
litical philosophy. The marquis looked
at "Henri the Fifth" and hesitated.
Should he venture on a great liberty
But his advice had been asked; as a
loyal subject he would give it frankly.
"Sire monseigneur," he stammered, "I
think jrou had better give up your Ger
man tailor and have your trousers mada
in Paris." "My trousers!" "Yes, sire;
pardon me, but your trousers are out of
fashion." San Francisco Argonaut.
Strange Effects of Extreme Cold.
Dr. Moss, of the English polar expe
dition of 1875-7, among many other
things, tells of the Etrange effects of the
extreme cold upon the candles they
burned. The temperature was from 35
to 50 degs. below zero, and the doctor
says he wan considerably discouraged
when upon looking at his candle he dis
covered that the flame "had all it could
do to keep warm." Tt was so cold that
the flame could not melt all of the tallow
of the candle, but was forced to eat its
way down, leaving a sort of skeleton
candle standing. There was heat enough,
however, to melt odd shaped holes in
the thin walls of tallow, the result be
ing a beautiful lacelike cylinder of white
with a narrow tongue of yellow flame
burning on the inside and sending out
many streaks of light into the darknes.

HOW THEY CARRY THEIR MONEY.
Heading: the Character of IVuple In the
1'orkrt hooks They Use.
"I can tell you tho business of hix men
out of every ten who comu in hero, and
tho social standing of all of them, from
the way they carry their money," said a
Broadway ticket seller for one of the
Bound steamboat lines to a reporter.
"Did you ever think how much of a
person's individuality is expressed in his
method of carrying his money? I seo
people every day get at their change
and have made a study of it.
"That man," said tho ticket 6eller, ns
an old gentleman who had purchased a
pasteboard good for a trip to Boston
went out, "is a retired banker.- Did yon
notice that ho carried his money in a
long morocco pocketbook? That iocket
book is always carried in the inside
pocket of his coat, on the right side. It
contains a numlier of bright, clean bills,
all neatly smoothed and laid out at full
length and right side up. Ho nevoi
folds a bill, I will venture a cigar.
"Tho young broker or wholesale mer
chant carries his money in a small case
made of seal or lizard skin. He folda
the bills twice. His roll is never large,
but he has enough ou hand to meet any
"The clubmen invariably carry a roll
of clean five dollar bills in their vest
pocket, where they can bo easily reached.
Some carry only gold. James Brown
Potter f avors gold, and usually carries a
few quarter eagles in a small silver case,
into which tho coins fit without rattling.
Lispeuard Stewart usually has a roll of
new bills in his vest iocket.
"The man who conies in and fishes
from a deep trousers pocket a lot of one,
two and five dollar bills that have been
twisted up like a gun wadding I always
set down as a sporting gent.'
"The farmer on an excursion to 'Bos
ting' counts up the prico of a ticket in
quarters and halves from a tan colored
leal her pouc h that is tied up with a
string run through small slits near the
top. The seafaring man on his way to
his hnjne on tho Maine coast carries th
proceeds of his last trip in a calfskin
wallet. It has been handed down from
his father, or perhaps his grandfather,
for it is black and shiny with age. It
has a long strap passed through a num
ber of cross straps. The cross sections
seldom have more in them than tobacco
dust or a frayed tax receipt that shows
that ho owns a house. But in the cen
ter of the wallet is a place where bills
may be laid out straight ami covered
witli a calfskin flap from either sido.
"Tho man who carries change in his
coat pockets has been a car conductor
at some time or other. The fellow who
draws ten cent piece.1) from every pocket
in his clothes is a peanut man or vender
of small wares.
"Tho women, too, have a variety of
ways to carry their money, though their
lack of pockets limits their vagaries in
that direction. The young woman with
fluffy hair, who has the prico of her
ticket rolled tightly in her palm, has a
mysterious storage place for money
somewhere. WLcn she is not spending
it she puts it whsre no man will ever go
after it, but the place is accessible to
her slim fingers in a second." New
Reply from the Pew.
"Joe" Jones, one of Sam's numerous
brothers, has enlisted in tho ministry.
His first sermon was preached in a coun
try church at Pine Log beforo a largo
congregation of farmers, backwoodsmen
and crackers. Sam's methods were fol
lowed with considerable success, but
when Joe branched off on his own hook
he struck a snag. He caused his hearers
to wince when, slapping tho Bible nearly
off the pulpit, ho exclaimed:
"A mau what will cuss a oath'll
There was a lively shifting among tho
pews and much cautious looking around
and head shaking. Joe saw, and deter
mined to push his point.
"Brethren and sisters," ho repeated,
"I want to say to you that a man what
will cuss a oath'll steal! What have
you got to say to that."
An aged cracker arose at the back of
the church and, fastening hiB glittering
gray eye on Joe, drawled through hi?
"All I got ter say i3 it's er gol dern lie!"
Joe was so discouraged that he rested
on his oars two weeks before making
any more bold assertions. New York
Registration In Germany.
In Germany the exigencies of compul
sory military service require that a man
should be registered from tho day of his
birth to that of his death. The govern
ment must be able to lay hands upon
him at any time. A man can accom
plish no civil act without producing his
papers of identity. He cannot cet up in
business, nor buy land, nor obtain a
situation, nor marry, nor get out of any
ecrapo with the judicial authorities, nor
leave the country without satisfying
the police as to who he is, where he was
born, who were his parents, etc. Lon
