Name and ltu!nes8e.
I Tlicro is at times a peculiar coinci
I deuce as regards the name ot a man
and his business. Such an appropriate
ness of name to calling is frequently
quite accidental. "Sexton Brothers,
Undertakers and Upholsterers," is the
wording of a sign at Long Branch, and
a dressmaker on Clinton 6treet, New
York, bears the name of N. Nadel (the
German for needle). To those who un
derstand German, bchneider will seem
an equally appropriate name for a dress
maker, and there are plenty of butchers
in town named Metzirer, while at least
one barber glories in the name of Scheer
er. But it seems odd that a Baecker
should deal in meat, or that even an
Avenue A. Barber Bhould 6ell beer.
However, when we hear of "Taylor &
Cutter," a firm of clothiers, or find that
"Stickwell & Co." are mucilage makers,
there is a strong suspicion of an inten
tional manufacture of appropriate firm
names. And that story about the bro
ker firm of "U. Ketcham & I. Cheatham
has been told so often that one hardly
knows whether to credit it or not. New

Centralization of Government.
The history of the federal govern
ment is one of growing strength and in
fluence. The difference between the
intention of the founders of the system
and of the existing fact is nearly as
great as that between the opinions of
Jefferson and moderate Federalists,
From the first organization of the gov
ernment to the present time there has
been almost a steady advance toward
centralization. This advance has been
both aided and retarded by the snpreine
court; but in the legislative branch of
the government and in the popular mind
me proportions or tne ieuerai govern
ment have constantly grown larger. It
has not been the tendency of the people
of the republic to strengthen the local
government at the expense of the general
government. On the contrary, the gen
eral government has grown at the cost
of the states. Henry L. Nelson in Har
The Nepalese "Kors."
The Nepalese "knkri", or heavy
curved knife, with the edge on the inner
side, is familiar by name to readers of
the accounts of our "little wars," in
which the Ghoorka infantry have taken
part. But there is another Nepalese
weapon, the "kora," the most strangely
shaped sword ever used, which, starting
from the hilt about an inch and a half
wide, when near the end turns at right
angles and expands to six inches. The
late Jung Bahadur, a noted expert at all
eastern arms and exercises, was able tc
decapitate a bullock with one blow of
the kora. Chambers' Journal.
Carvings on Easter Island.
The hard volcanic rock of Easter
island is covered with carvings intended
to represent human faces, birds, fishes
and mythical animals. Fishes and tur
tles appear common among these sculp
tures, but the most common figure is a
mythical animal, half human in form,
with bowed back and long, clawlike
legs and arms. According to the na
tives this symbol was intended to rep
resent the god "Meke-Meke,"' the great
spirit of the sea. Philadelphia Ledger.
They All Dodged.
A quaint minister once said, "Now,
brethren, I propose to throw this hymn

of something other than the sermon."
He made the necessary gesture, as
though he would hurl the bock, and,
curiously enough, every man in the con
gregation ducked his head. London Tit-

WELLINGTON S FAMOUS BALL.
llt-llcH ard ISratix AVlio Itt-itlljr Ianc
the Daiirv f ln-atli.
Th! I)ike and Durheps of Richmond
were living in a lino hotel on the liuo d
la BlaiichiKsre, which stood on its own
grounds and hud a fruit and flower
garden extending to the city ramparts.
Their graces moved in all the society of
Brussels, and entertained a great deal.
The diu liess, who had issned 220 invita
tions for the ball, promised to recall
them wheu r-he heard that Naioleon'a
army was advancing. But the Dnko of
Wellington, to prevent alarm, requested
that the ball might take place.
Nevertheless, many English families
were frightened away from Brussels,
and iMj.st horses were kept harnessed in
the Duke of liic-hmond's stable, in case
bad news from the scene of the conflict
should make it advisable for his chil
dren to Ixj sent to Antwerp. The ma
jority of the jwoplo of Brussels were
violent Bonapartists, and were prepared
to entertain Nucleoli in great- style
should he force the British army to re
treat and enter their city in triumph.
So it was that the Duke of Wellington
and many of his officers went to the ball
after the business of the day had leen
attended to. While the merry couples
were flying around a dispatch from the
front was handed to Wellington. He
asked tho Dnke of Richmond for a pri-
vato room where he might consult with
some of his generals who were present,
The duchess' dressing room was the only
convenient room safe from intrusion.
Candles were hastily lighted on tho
dressing table, at which Wellington sat
with a map before him, and having ex
plained certain points to his staff they
all rejoined the company. They left the
house before 10 o'clock and succeeded
in doing so without attracting any at
tention. Very few, if any, of the
dancers guessed how near at hand was
tho crisis which was to decide the fate
of Europe, and it never entered the
heads of the young girls that some of
their partners were dancing the "dance
of death." Manchester Timea.
The Spider Hawk.
The miners of Colorado who have
built cabins on tho mountain sides know
what a iest the small, brown wood
spider proves to be. They throw their
webs over your best clothes, cooking
utensils and in every corner where you
can get them m your .eyes and mouth.
Not only that, but they will drop into the
frying pan, water bucket or upon the
table when you are eating. But nature
furnished us a remedy and a friend when
she gave us the spider hawk.
J.ne name is given by miners to a
small, steel blue wasp about three-
iourtns or an incn ia lengtn. lie can
easily be recognized by the quick, ner
vous stroke of his wings. The wasps build
a nest up among the rafters of your cabin
of wood pulp or furze from the outei
coating of old dead trees. Then they
are ready for business. Every few min
utes you can see your hawk climbing up
the rafters with a spider, sometimes car
rying one tour or nve times nis own
Sometimes they get a spider so heavy
that they will fall many times before
they succeed in reaching their net.
They never give up, but keep on trying
till they succeed. When the spider is
Bafely placed in the nest the female
hawk deposits her egg in the dead body.
The hawks lives only in pairs, as far a
my observation goes. They become
rather tame. Great Divide.
The national Malay weapon, the kria.
is said to have been invented by a Java
nese monarch of the Fourteenth cen
tury. Its varieties are said to exceed u
hundred, and there are in Javanese no
fewer than fifty names for them. It
varies in size, from the two feet wavy
blade of Sum down to a mere tooth
pick. But the peculiarity is that the
weapon is never ground, but kept rough
and sawlike in edge, by scouring with
lime juice or the juice of an unripe pint
apple, sometimes niixetl with arsensic,
and it is on this account that kri
wounds are so dangerous.
Old specimens are so eaen away by
tins practice tnat tne blade seeraft
formed from a bunch of wires roughly
welded up. Such krises are highly
valued, and some of the ancient ones,
heirlooms of chiefs, with grotesquely
carved and inlaid hilts and sheaths, are
almost unpurchasable. Chambers' Joor
It Often Depends.
A certain prelate had among his sub
ordinates an honest and simple minded
clergyman, who was in the habit of pre
fixing to nearly all his replies the Latin
word "distinguo." One day the prelate.
wishing to divert himself at the expense
of the said clergyman, in the midst cf a
large social gathering, gravely said to
"Mr. Thaddeus, would it be right, in
a case of emergency, to baptize an in -
fant with broth?"
"Distinguo" (that depends), replied th
ecclesiastic. "With broth from yotu
kitchen, it would be very wrong indeed,
but the broth served in the hospital
under your management might very
properly be used for the purpose, as if it
is not pure water, it is not very far off."

"There was a very mad conductor on

said John D. Pattrson, a Kansas City
man. "Tho car was crowded, and I
shared my seat with a St. Louis drum
mer, who was bent on having a good
time at tho expense of his fellow pas
sengers. As tho conductor came along
a dog under our seat began to snarl
viciously. Tho conductor looked hard
at the drummer. 'No dogs allowed in
the coaches; take him into the baggage
car,' he said. 'Not my dog,' replied tho
drummer, as ho made a vicious kick.
The cur went howling under tho seats
the full length of the car. The passen
gers became interested. The conductor,
porter and brakeman made search
him. lie continued to run and ho
The passengers joined in the search,
no dog could be found, and tho qu .
was finally given up.
"Just as the passengers had settled
into a doze tho dog set up a heart
breaking, ear piercing howl. Ths
search was renewed, but without suc
cess. As wo pulled into Dunker Hill the
dog got under the wheels, and his death
song was something apialling. The
conductor was overjoyed. Ho got oil
and looked for fragments of the dog.
The drummer had alighted, and as the
conductor called all aboard, he put
iown his grips and filled that train from

was a ventriloquist. The conductor was
so mad that ho forgot to take up tickets

Doctored Its Own Tail.
A small boy gave a lesson in natural
history the other day. He brought into
the office a species of lizard popularly
known as the "swift." Holding the lit
tle reptile above his head ho let it fall
to the floor, with the result that a sec
tion of its tail was broken off. Noticing
that it was minus a part of its prehen
sile organ, the swift, after discovering
the piece of tail lost, backed slowly up
to it, and placing the stub against tho
piece, held it in contact for a few sec
onds, and then ran swiftly away with
his tail glued together, apparently aa
sound as ever.
The experiment was re
tunes, with the same result. Swift gl
could doubtless be used successfully in
sticking dismembered limbs, fingers,
etc., together, and we throw out this
suggestion to local surgeons for what it
is worth. Ontario Observer.

Muscular Exercise and Health.
As many diseases, prominent amon;
which are these of the abdominal and

congestion, and as good circulation does
much for the prevention of such coa

creasing the activity of the heart and
aiding in the venous return, will do
much to prevent a large class of dis
