THEY WERE ALL PATRIOTS.
Seventeen Members of One Family Sorve
Their Country In Its Xeed.
A revolutionary tradition of Rhode
Island, long currently believed but
only on tradition, has just been
verified by the collection of a number
of scattered bits of evidence. It
would be difficult to find another
instance of an equal amount of
patriotism in a single family.
Caleb Arnold and his excellent wife,
Patience, were, at the time of the
revolution, the parents of eleven
grown childrea eight sons and threo
daughters. Caleb and his eight
boyaLsek, William, Nehemiah.
Edward, Oliver, Ephraim, Jabez and
Othniel all entered a patriotic army.
His throe sons-in-law became soldiers
His wife and her threo daughters.
Fatience, Anna and Achsa, together
with a daughter-in-law, Isceah, re
mained at home and managed the
farm in the men's absence, finding
time and strength to perform, in
addition to these labors, the duty of
nursing the sick and wounded among
the soldiers of the slate.
It is related, says the Youth's Com
panion, of the two sons, Jabez and
Othniel, that as they were marching
with Gen. Greene's brigade to Bunker
Hill Othniel was seized with the pre
sentiment of death which so many
young soldiers have experienced.
"Jabez," he said, turning to his
brother, 'if I am killed in this battle
will you marry my sweetheart, Rachel
Jabez did not hesitate to give the
required promise, and Othniel. though
he survived the glorious disaster of
the day. received a wound which
eventually proved mortal; but either
because Jaboz felt that his word had
been too hastily given, or because
Rachel had not boen consulted as to
her views upon the question, he did
not then marry her, but shortly after
was wedded instead to the Widow
Being within a few years loft a
widower, he came courting to Rachel,
who was still unwedded, married her,
and so kept his word.
Counting sons-in-law with sons and
daughters-in-law with daughters, we
find that in this one large family of
little Rhode Island there wore seven
teen persons and perhaps more who
served their country in her need. It
is a fine record for their descendants
to remember. -
Where la the Rnzz ?
It ha been found that horseflies,
bees, bumblebees and other insects of
thai ilk can be held by the 'legs and
made to produce the humming or
buzzing noises so characteristic of the
two-winged insect family, even though
their wings be " entirely removed and

half or two-thirds of each wing) re

IN ST. PETERSBURG.
Sight Along the Principal Street of jthe
By day or by night, in winter or
summer, it is a puro delight to stand
on the Anitchkolf bridge and survey
the scene on either hand, writes Isa
bel Hapgood In Scribner. If wo gaze
to the north toward what is one of the
oldest parts settled on the rivulet
riddled, so-called "mainland. " in
thl3 northern Venice, we see the long,
plain facade of the Katherine insti
tute for the education of the daugh
ters of officers, originally built by
Feter the Great for his daughter Anna
as the Italian palace." but used only
for the palace servants until it was
built over and converted to its pres
ent purpose. Beyond we catch a
glimpse of the yellow wings of Count
Scheremelieffs ancient house and its
great Iron railing, behind which, in
a spacious court-yard, after the
Moscow fashion so rare In thrifty
Petersburg. the main building
lies invisible to us. If we look to the
south, we find tholong ochre mass of
the Anitchkoff palace, facing on the
Nevsky. upon the right shoro; on the
left, beyond the palace of Serigei
Alexandrovitch. the branch of the
Alexander Neusky Monastrey, in old
Russian style, with highly colored
saints and heads of seraphim on the
outer walls, and a perspective of
light, stuccoed buildings dwellings,
markets, churches until the eye
halts with pleasure on the distant
blue dome of the Troitzky cathedral,
studded with goldon stars. Indeed,
it is difficult to discover a vista in
St Petersburg which does not charm
us with a glimpse of one or more of
those cross-crowned domes, floating
bubble-like, in the pale azure of the
sky. Though they are far from be
ing a3 beautiful in form or coloring
as those of Moscow, they satisfy us at
If it is on a winter night that we
may take up our stand hero, we may
catch a glimpse of the numerous
skating gardens," laid out upon
the ice cleared on the snowy surface
of the canal. The ice-hills will be
black with forms flitting swiftly down
the shining roads on sledges or
skates, illuminated by the electric
light; a band will be braying blithely
regardless of the piercing cold, and
the skaters will dance on in their
fancy dress ball or prize races, or
otherwise, clad so thinly as to amaze
the shivering foreigner as he hugs
his furs. - -; -
They JLIve Very VTelf.
The Maine fishermen spread a
table on board their vessels that
would surprise the average person.
Barrels of cabbage, turnip,, sweet
corn, fish, meats, canned gooda etc.,
are included in the outfit In fact all
the articles necessary for a first-class
hotel are found in the pantry. Though
they handle immense quantities of
fish, neither on board nor at their
homes dees it often appear.
A mitigating Circumstance.
Pastor Is it a fact that you throw
your boots at your wife, and that she
pounds you with the broom-stick?
Husband Yes; but sometimes we
change about, and I pound her with
the broom-handle, and she bounces
the boots on me. Texas Sif tings.
