Something About Skates and
There is no m'ore graceful and
healthful exercise than skating. A
skillful skater makes one almost look
tor the wings th;it the ancients fixed
to the ankles of .Mercury, Perseus and
Minerva. In one thing can the birds
be rivaled ly humans,
"A they sweep,
Ou soiiiidinjj okates a thousand different
In circling oie, swift as the wind along,
The boy who has never learned to
skate has lost a pleasure that is dear
to boy's heart, but there are few who
have not tried skating, however limit
ed the streams, pond or icy place for
practice may have been,
Skates are very old; Jiun-
dreds, nay, perhaps thousand's
of years before this crisp win
ter, skatin2 was a merry sport.
Perhaps too many in this age of in
vention think that more ideas are
new than really are so. If we remem
ber that everything we see around us
grew up, then we caa begin the inquiry
about skates that came before the
keen edged "club," with all the ardor
of hist orians. It is certain that skates
would be of no use in the tropics; we
must look for their home in the land
of long winters, of crusty snow and
lo,w, ice-bound rivers.
We would not envy the boy of long
go, as he bound the shin-bones of
some nnininl to his feet and went
t hrough a k i nd of sprawling gy mnast ics
that was the skating of the period.
In Iceland skates are called lsleegir,
"ice bones," the shin-bones of a sheep.
If sheep shin-bones were the first
skates, then the boy who lived befbre
iron or bronze were known, back in
the stone and bone age, could enjoy
himself with this cheery sport. The
boys of London in the 12th century,
Fitt Stephen tells us, in winter bind
undtr their feet a pair of shin-bones,
take in their hands poles shod with
iron, which at times they strike
against the ice, and are thus carried
along with the rapidity of a bird on
the wing or a bolt discharged from a
crossbow. The generous Holland boy,
Hans Drinker, was forced to go back
to the ' primitive way," when he
had given his skates to a
poor friend and had forgotten his
chances in the race for the "silver
It ia thought that skates came into
use in Northern Europe, perhaps in
Holland, where it is cold and there is
plenty of smooth water, because
where the rivers are swift there is no
skat ina. The wooden skates with
iron rnnners curling up into a wonder
ful spiral terminated with a brass
acorn at the point, were introduced
into England from the Low Countries.
Gossipy Pepys, in his diary of Dec. 1 ,
1001, records, "To my Lord Sand
wich's, to Mr. Moore and then
. over to the Parke, where I first in my
life, it being a great frost, did see peo
ple sliding with their skates, which is a
very pretty art."
The Scotch have the reputation of
being good skaters both in the "fen,"
or straight swift skating, and the
"fancy" skating. Our country has
the champion, I think, at present.
A Touching Scene From a Russian
Po o Game.
A pathetic story of brute pity is
told in the following extract from the
letter of a visitor inBussia,to a friend,
describing a game of polo:
Ilorse and rider stiU lay motionless.
Was it possible that the shock could
have killed them both? The man lay
just as he had been sitting,, turned to
one side in readiness to strike the
ball; so that, while his feet were still
in the stirrups' hisliead and shoulders
had fallen backward on the ground.
At this dcath-liko stillness a shud
der passed through all the vast as
sembly; and in the carriage next to
us a la-dy fell suddenly back against
the cushions, fainting. Then two or
three officers sprang forjvard to
see what had happened, while
the players leaped from their
horses to assist tneir fall
en comrade. Never haye I seen a sight
of higher intelligence in a brute than
was then exhibited by that little Cos
As two or three of the officers,
stooping, took him by the bend to
raise him, he looked up at them with
pleading, pathetic eyes, as though en
treating them to be very careful. Then
slowly, cautiously, he allowed himself
to be drawn away from that prostrato
figure, raising himself as much as pos
sible, that he miglit not crush or in
jure his beloved master.
No sooner was this weight removed
than the officer's body turned with a
quick, convulsive itldvernent, and the
next moment stiffened as though sud
denly changed to stone. It mndeevery
one shiver to 6ee that ominous, ghast
ly motion. The horse was no sooner on
his feet, than, shaking his head free
from the hand that held hisbridle,and
stepping, oh, so carefully, he passed
around to where his master's head
lay. The great fur cap had fallen
backward, leaving the bronzed fore
head bared. Then, the bystanders all
the while looking on in pitying silence,
the poor beast came close up, and
putting out his tengne, touched the
officer's face lovingly, licking the tem
ples and brow and miming his nose
caressingly under his chin, as though
he would force his master to rniso his
head and speak to him. Finding this
to be of no avail, he lifted his own
head sorrowfully, and, looking around
at the mute observers of this touch
ing scene, gave a low whinny, which
said as plainly as any words could
"Can no one here Ijelp him?"
A choking sensation came into my
throat and in the carriages close
around there were scarcely any eyes
without tears. But there was no
help. He had injiired his spinal column
and snapped some ligament connect
ing with the brain, so that although
he was taken to the hospital and did
not cease to breathe for several days
-he was virtually a dead man.
' A Wise Toad.
A lady used to sit after tea almost
very evening on a stone" step at the
head of a flight of terraces which led
from a bay window down into the
garden. As this wind? was not
overlooked by any neighbor's win
dow, it was the family ctistcn to
leave the curtains up in the evening,
and let the cheery liht of the student
lamp which stood on the large reading
table shine out.
One evening, ns the lady sat on the
stop, she saw a large toad hopping on
the grass toward her. When he had
come within about eight inches of the
window, he suddenly settled himself
into the long grass, having selected as
hiit resting pi are a little hollow, so
that only the very top of hishealand
his gleaming eyes showed above the
There he sat, without moving, until
the dampness sent his observer into
the house. The next evening she found
that the toad had already taken his
place when she seated herself on the
step; and on several successive even
ings he was sitting in exactly the same
spot by the time the suu had fairly
The lady's curiosity was by this
time around to such a degree that she
determined to defy the dampness, and
stay in her positon on the step until
she saw what the toad accomplished
in his hiding place. The next evening,
therefore, she provided herself with a
thick shawl, and took her accustomed
seat, a little later than usual.
As the light faded the toad rose
from his position and hopped towards
her a little way; then, after solemnly
and anxiously regarding her for some
moseents, he returned to his hollow,
evidently deciding that she was a
harmless person, not bent on making
trouble for him; as he had at first
When the lamp in the window was
lighted, it seemed to her that the
toad raised his head a little and
took on an attitude of great vig
ilance. The cause was soon appar
ent. After a few moments a large moth,
attracted by the light, dashed against
the window in a vain endeavor to
gain entrance. After fluttering wildly
against the glass, it suddenly dropped,
blinded to the ground, and the toad
sprang forward and secured it.
This was only his first victim, and
at the end of half an hour the watch
er went into the house with her curi
osity fully satisfied. Some one to
whom she told the story suggested
that the toad might have happened
on the favorable position the first
night; but his friend persisted that he
had discovered it by his own unaided
T he Size of Alligators,
I have seen numerous specimens of
our saurian no longer than an ordi
nary lead-pencil; this was in' the sea
son of their hatching. I have also
seen a few living specimens about six
teen feet in length. In the autumn of
1875 I obtained for the late Effing
ham Lawrence, Member of Congress,
and Commissioner from Louisiana to
tin Centennial Exhibition, the dried
skiu of an alligator which, after at
least fifteen inches had been cut from
the snout and skull, and ten inches
from the end of the tail, still measured
seventeen feet ten inches in length.
Allowing more than six inches for
shrinkage in drying, this monster of
his kind, alive, must have measured
more than twenty feet. He was killed
in the lower part of Bayou Lafour
che. Probably the largest alligator ever
seen in Louisiana was krfled in a small
lake on the plantation of H. J. Feltus
in Concordia Parish. ' According to
the statement of Mr. Feltus, now
of Baton Rouge, this specimen meas
ured twenty-two feet in length. The
great reptile had long been famous for
miles arouad having destroyed num
bers of hogs and hounds owned in the
neighborhood of his retreat. He had
become so wary, from the number of
ineffectual shots fired at him, as to be
almost unapproachable. Finally he
fell a victim toa long ehot fired from
a Mississippi rifle in the hands of Mr.
Feltus, who had persevered in hunting
him, having been the greatest loser by
his depredations. The huge carcass
of this reptile was towed to the bank
by a boat. It required the strength
of a pair of mules and a stout rope to
haul it ashore, where the measurement
was made with the result noted above.
A Story of a Flood.
A pathetic story is associated with
the Uttle village of Suss, in the Lower
Engadine, a wild bleak valley of Switz
erland. Oue day a flood caused by
the melting of many glaciers, came
roarinffdown the valley. Thepastor's
duties had taken him into the village,
and his wife, fearing that he might be
oyer taken by the terrible flood, hur
ried down to the bridge that separated
them from the village, iust as her hus
band reached the opposite side.
Without a thought of her own dan
ger, she called out: "Stay, ' Ulridi; I
will come and help yon to crossover!"
Just as she reached the middle pier
the flood came rushing down the gorge
in great force, and in a moment swept
away the two side piers, leaving her
standing alone on the tottering bridge.
The brave woman clasped her hands
for a moment in prayer, and then
those on tke mountain side percoived
an expression pass over her face as
though she had suddenly remembered
something. .They saw her hurriedly
tear away the keys from her girdle and
fling them ashore to her children, who
followed her down to the bridge; and
they heard her voice sound above the
had roarof the-rushing water, "There's
the keys children!"
A second later, and the devoted
mother had disappeared down the
ravine. Even in her own terrible dan
ger she had recollected that the keys
of the cupboard were in her girdle, and
she knewtltat thechildren would want
their evening meal. Little Folks.
A Dangerous Guest.
During a dreadful snow storm and
inundation in Bengal, the estate of a
Mr. Campbell, situated on the island of
Snngar, suffered so greatly, that out
of three thousand people living on
his grounds, only six or seven hundred
escaped, and these principally by cling
ing to the roof of the house. While
Mr. Campbell'shouse was crammed so
close as scarcely to admit, another
individual, what should come squeez
ing and pushing its way into the inter
ior but an immense tiger. Having
reached the room in which Mr. Camp
bell was sitting, he nestled himself
down m one ot Vho corners, like a
Newfoundland dog. Mr. Campbell
then loaded his gun in a very quiet
manner, and shot the dangerous guest
dead upon the spot.

We are In receipt of a pamphlet
entitled. "The Eleventh Census," by
lion. Hubert 1. Porter, superintendent
of cenkus for the United Mates, says
the Okolona Messenger of Mississippi,
from which we gather that the com
ber of mortgages recorded during the
ten years preceding the 1st of Jan
uary. 1830, in tive states, wero as fol
lows: Alabama, 98. -'. Iowa, 520,-45-t;
Kansas, . 213; Tounossce, 93,
282; Illinois. 612.249. These mort
gages covered an aggregate indebted
ness of about $2.00.IAM.000, and
there were due and unpaid January 1,
18U0. more than (900.000,0.11; 137.
0X1. CO J acres of land and
more than 1,609,000 town lots in
these five states were encumbered.
The amount duo on mortgage indent-edne-s
for every man, wowau and
child in these slates Jauary 1, 18'JO,
is a follows: Alabama $20; Iowa.
$104: Kansas $170; Tennesson, 23.
and Illinois, $ 100. It will be ob
served that the two Southern state)
are in better condition than the
Northwestern states, and yet the bur
den of the former is more than they
cun bear. What, then, must be the
fate of the agriculturists ot IhU coun
try if no relief is accorded them in
the direction indicated by the Uoala
demands in the near future? The
superintendent of the census com
menting on ths table from which the
above r.gures are taken, says:
The result ot the direct inquiry as
to the debt on farms and homes is not
yet complete. T he average farm and
home debt shown by tabulation of
partial returns from counties distrib
uted throughout the Union, is f 1, 288
for farms and 1924 for homes. If
these averages hold good for the
United States there is an existing
debt in force of (2.600,000,000 on tho
farms and homes of the United States
occupied by owners and incumbered.
Only some rough results of this in
quiry are now known, it is probable
that tho number of families occupying
and owning mortgaged farms and
homes does not exceed 2,2C0,0'J0,
leaning perhaps 10,1.60,000 families
u.at hire their farms and homes or
occupy and own them free of incum
brance. The total number of fami
lies occupying farms is supposod to
be about 4, 760, 0J0, so that about
7,750,000 families occupy homes"
The reader should remember that
these figures are made for free Amer
ica and not for down-trodden Ireland.
And yet we are told by the plutocratic
prass and speakers. "The Farmers'
Alliance is a very good in fact, a
most excellent institution, if Its mom
bers would only keep out of politics."
And the Messenger can toll them fur
ther, that if they take the advice so
freely tendered by the. bosses and neg
lect their duties as citizens, it won't
be Ion? until they will be serfs and
slaves of the money power. The rem
edy, therefore, is for the industrial
classes to stand shoulder to shoulder
in defense of their rights and inter
ests, attend the political primaries and
conventions, and instead of voting at
the dictation of the machine, vote for
Mary and the babies.
Paying Off the Debt.
Contraction of tho currency has
been going on from year to year for
twenty years. It has mode money
more and more valuable year by year.
The money sharks have not only
reaped usury but they harvest larger
dollars than the ones they planted
measured in labor's products. Those
who have money to loan and those
upon fixed salaries are interested in
contraction. A congressman's salary
of $o,000 a year is equal to a salary
of $ 20, 003 twenty years ago that is.
as much can be bought with the
$6,000 to-day as with the 20.000
twenty years ago. The man in
debt (and the majority are in
debt) is interested in an expansion of
currency volume, and it would but be
justice were the psr capita volume to
remain the same. The man who is
In debt and is compelled to pay from
150 to 200 bushels of wheat more for
every hundred bushels of wheat that
he borrowed, besides interest, is
surely robbed and that's the way
our finances have been run. The na
tion's debt , to-day, notwithstanding
the billions paid upon it Is as great
to-day as at tho cloe of tho war
measured in labor s products. That's
the way the g. o. p. has been paying
off the debt! The Sentinel.
Only h Blind,
Ever since the Alliance started its
business efforts some people have at
tempt d to array Alliance papers
against AUliance business enterprises
by the foolish argument that it would
injura' their advertising patron je.
It is only a blind: that class of men
would not patronize reform papers
anyway. They failed to do anything
fit Indianapolis. The Economist will
fight for every Alliance enterprise, and
if its advertisers do not like it they
can let it alone. And when advertis
ing money becomes a bribe to make
re orm papers quiet on reform meas
ures they had better stop taking ad
vertisements, even it they bo com
