A family mansion means reunion
Some of your families are very much
scattered. The children married, and
went off to St. Losis, or Chicago, or
Charleston; but, perhaps, once a year
you come together at the old place
How yon wake up the old piano thai
has been silent for years!
But how will we act at the reunion in
(he old family mansion of heaven? It
is a good while since yo-i parted at the
door of the grave. There will be Grace,
and Mary, and Martha, and Charlie,
and Lizzie, and all the darlings of your
household not pale and sick and gasp
ing for breath, as when you saw them
last, but their eye bright with the lust
er of heaven, and their cheek roseate
with the flush of celestial summer.
What clasping of hands! What em
bracings! What coming together of lip
to lip! What tears of joy! You say; "I
thought there were no tears iu heaven."
Tliere must be, for the bible says that
"God shall wipe them away," and if
there were no tears tliere, how could he
wipe them away ? '1 hey cannot be tears
of grief or tears of disappointment.
They must be tears of gladness. Christ
will come and say: "What! Child of
heaven, is it too much for thee? Dost
thou break down under the gladness of
this reunion V Then I will help thee."
And, with his one arm around us and
the other around our loved one, he shall
hold us up in the eternal jubilee.
While I speak some of you, with
broken hearts, can hardly hold your
peace. You feel as if you would 8xak

Toward thee I press with blistered feet
over the desert way. My eyes fail for
their weeping. I faint from listening
for feet that will not come, and the

A Young Woman's Tact.
There was a pretty (ouch of courtsev
in Brooklyn church on a recent Sun
day. After the. bervice began some
lato comers, evidently strangers wero
shown ot'ier seats being occupied to
the very front iw. There were four
of them and they scrupiously followed
the routine of worship, rising and re
maining seated, as they noticed those
arouud them doing. At the hymn be
fore the sermon, having stood during
the singing of all the others they rose
as well. It is the custom of the con
gregation however, to sit for this
hymn, and the four stood alone when
the first note was struck.
Only for a few seconds, for a young
woman, a church member, who saw
the mistake, rose to her feet to Bhare
tho situation with them. An old
gentleman just behind her followed
suit, another at his side joi ed the
slanders, and in less than a minute the
entire congregation was on its feet, put
there by the quick tact of one young
woman. And the strangers never
knew they had blundered.-Her 1'oint

A Possible Telephone Between
IMi ladelphia aa J l.omUii.
A distinguished authority on the
telephone says that it is rot imnrob-
able that telephanic communication
may be established between Philadel
phia and Liverpool in a few vears. It
is admitted that some obstac:es are iu
the way, but the success of the tele
phone 1 ne between Paris and London
has given the promoters of the inter-
oceamc scheme new confidence.
the successful ernerimpnts nhicli
have been tried on the cable across the
isntish channel are regarded as an al
most certain presaej of what may noon
be accomplished between this city and
an J-.nglish port. 1 xperiments have
already been tried on the Mackey
fiei nett cable with telephonic connec
tions, and, although something of a
failure, has not discouratred new ad
ventures which are soon to be made.
the experiments will be very expen
sive, and may reouire some time in de
veloping, but there ii no doubt that
both capital and the brains will be
found. A moveme t in this direction
is already afoot, and the future of the
promoter s plans wiU be watched with
intense interest by the scientific world.
Xew York capital and management
will no doubt be united, and the first
experiment will be attempted from
the Newfoundland end of the trans

Snake stories are always in order,
and it matters little how long a bow
the story teller draws, everybody be
lieves him. It is a rule long established
that it shall be so. Xow here is one
that comes from an Indianan:
About the middle of June, SIX), says
he, a gas-well contractor, contracted
for a well to be drilled in South Amer
ica, on the Uruguay river, a few miles
below the city of Assumption Mr.
Freeman's contract called for SlOnwo
at the completion of the well, s.j he im
mediately shipped his tools and rig to
San Francisco. They were then loaded
on a steamer and sent to their desti
nation. After everything was in run
ning order for drilling, it was a great
sight to see the derrick, 500 feet high
and covering three-quarters of an acre
We got along all right for a
while, when at the depth of
1,800 feet the cable broke
and loft all the tools in the bottom of
the well. AVe worked for several days
and nights, but without any success.
The cable was all broken to pieces,
with the exception of about 500 feet of
good cable, that was lett on th shaft
We had pulled some forty or fifty feet
of that over the derrick and piled it on
the tloor. I do not know why we did
this, but it was done. We did not Have
cable enough to do anything with, so
we finally all sat down to talk the m it
ter over and come to some conclusion
as to what to do, when to our astonish
ment, we saw a monstrous snake
crawling into the derrick. Mr. Steward
the driller that worked on the opposite
tower from me, threw the anvil at it.
No sooner was this done than the huge
monster started down the well. It suc
ceeded in getting in, all but about 500
feet of its tail. AVe immediately took
a rope, hitched it onto its tail, turned
on the steam and then wound the
loose cable that was laying on the
floor around the shaft. Presently il
began to raise the snake's tail. On, on
went the engine, pulling Mr. Snake
higher and higher in the derrick, till,
filially the end of the tail went over the
crown, within 103 feet of the shaft,
when, all at once everything stopped
for the belt was slipping. AVe doubled
the cable from the snake.s tail to the
shaft, then put plenty of resin on the
belt, slacked back a little, took a run
and shoot, turned on all the steam,
and presently something gave way.
AVe kept on pulling and winding the
shaft, when at last the head of the
snake made its appearance at the top
of the well, but to our astonishment it
had hold of tho end of the tools. AVe
tried everyway possible to get it loose
We hammered it with sledge hammers
burnt it with red-hot irons, but did not
succeed in getting it loose. AVe finally
eave it up and went ahead and finished
the well, using the snake for a cable
It had bucb a death hold on the tools
that we had to burn its head off after
irettlng the tools out of the derrick,
yet it should be said that we did not
get a superabundance or natural gas.
The- snake was shipped to America.
Tlie sfesleton is now on exhibition at
Noblesville, Jnd, and the hide is used
for a gas main in Hartford City.
V. T. Barnum, after making his will

A St. I ouls Woman Says She Ii
Yi-t-ia' 1 laughter,
Xow St. Louis has a woman who
claims to be a near relative of ( Jueen
Yictoria. Her name is Madame Chari
pot, aud she lives with her husband and
two children in a neat little cottage
surrounded by a well-cultivated garden
of flowers and plants. It is a queer
tale that she unfolds, and is best told
in her own words as addressed to a
Chicago reporter, who visited St. Louis
for the purpose of obtaining an inter
view. "My history," she began, "is well
known among my countrymen, espe
cially at the French village where I
was raised, and any Frenchman, includ
ing Imile Korst, the former consul
could have given you the facts. My
birth is recorded at the mayor's ollice
iu the city of Toulouse on the 2;th day
of April, 18 7, under the name of
Jeannie Melanie Palisse. The residence
of my parents is mentioned as La
Lorade, Xo. 4. This was done to com
ply with the French law, I was reared
by a gentleman named Jean Carrichou,
until three years old, when Mr. Palisse
took me away and brought me to the
United States. The oi.lv recollection I
have of my early days is that I was
carried very often to the Castle of Pan,
where M. Carrichou's first cousin was
superintendent. The ladies ot the
royal family residing there were very
kiud to me and 1 was not treated at all
like the daughter of a country peasant
AVhen M. Palisse brought ine to this
counlry I understand that he received
a round sum of money to raise me, but
witn the understanding that lie wmld
be assassinated if he would divulge the
secret of my birth. Since then I found
out also that he was paid at tlie be
gining to give me his name. lie
never treated me like his daughter and
always told me that I would know all
about my parents when I was M years
old. lie died seven years ago, and left
all his property to his two children. I
received 85 by his will, but did not
expect anything as I ws positive that
he was not my father. It has always
been my belief that M. Palisse's death
was very suspicious, He never gave
me positive information, but from
what he said I surmised that my mother
was no other than Queen A'ictoria of
England, and I suppose my foster-
father was too well posted on the
matter to live longer. 1 did not attempt
to solve the mystery until t was 40
years old, and 1 was so anxious at that
time that I was taken sick with nervous
prostration. Somebody came to my
house and gave me a voluminous en
velope with the royal seal of England.
1 was delirious with fever and burned
the package. Several years ago a
stranger sent from ICngland especially
to visit me told me that this envelope
contained 25,000. At intervals I
received similar visits and once my life
has been threatened. This is . the
reason I have constantly a revolver
near at hand."
The woman repeats the same
story in a straightforward manner to
all who question her. The dates are
in accordance with English history.
Princess Victoria, daughter of the
Duke of Kent, succeeded to AVilliam
iv, in June, 1837. The Princess, ex
plained Mine. Charpiot, spent a season
in Biarritz in the spring of 1837, before
she was called to the throne of Eng
land. It is not impossible for an interna
tional dispute to arise over her sweep
ing claim. A remarkable feature of
her claim is that she resembles the
Queen iu many ways.

AVe can "perceive'' light without the
smallest aid from the retina. If the
optic nerve is sufficiently evcited to
reach the sensorium and create a dis
turbance at that center of the brain
where the optic nerve terminates we
shall then see light and sjOrks. If
moreover, the optic nerve is cut or
mutilated in any way we sliould see a
brilliant flash of light, through with
out any sensation of pain. And so it
is with the other nerves, the auditory
nerve has only to be excited, not
necessarily by sound, so as to reach it
center, the brain, and we shall hear u

A firm on Fourteenth street, in the
busiest shopping neighborhood, has in
troduced a novel advertisement. A
painted theatrical ocean is constructed
on the roof of one house while the roof,
of the adjoining building, being a little
higher, serves as the shore. On this
shore a man attired as the lone fisher
man sits and iudust riously goes through
the pantomime of lishing. Now and
then he works the lines of a miniature
sailboat, causing the latter to skim tlie
mimic sea.' All of this attracts the at
