Within the niche, at the piano there.

a Y01111? Lady's foot Blocked a
j From the SanFrancisco Chronicle.
j A young lady took a car which
j brought her to the foot of California
street, ami there took a seat on the
dummy car, which bore her to the
vicinity of her home on Octavia street.
As she left the car and was crossing
t lie track on the southern side her foot
slipped and turned and was caught
fast in the track where the wire cable
passes. Some imperfection in the
roadbed had caused the narrow aper
ture to expand, and the young girl's
narrow foot became entrapped. The
engineer of the east-bound uuraruy
saw the obstacle on the r.ad in season
to check his swift approaching car
and alighted, with the conductor and
several passengers of investigating
mind, who endeavored to rc!ea'-e t!ip
slender foot, but' their it' its wen
vain. Another car and another
brought up in the funeral low, and
constant reinforcements in the way
of passing pedestrians cheeked and en
livened the scene. An attempt was j
made to pry tii? iron rails forming the j
ruble channel further anarf. Imt tlipv I

firmly resisted all efforts. Everybody
had a suggestion: "Push your foot for
ward;" "pull it back;" "tip it side
ways;" "Lift your heel higher." The
unhappy girl was almost fainling, but
she persevered in her t Hurts to extri
cate the offending member. By this
time travel on the road had virtually
ceased. The last car had long ago
passed, and was steadily approaching
to fall in line at the end of the .singu
lar procession. J)own-town passen
gers fretted and fumed or lowl
climbed the hill in disgust. On every
street corner groups of waiting people
berated the laxity of street car man
agement. Reporters from all the
down-town dailies were proceeding
westward to learn the meaning of the
large crowd reported to have assem
bled in the Western Addition. From
the scene of the accident envoys had
been despatched to the railroad shops
to bring appliances for taking up a
section of the road. At this juncture,
a tall, brawny Eeglishnian, iu the
dress of a mechanic, forced his way
through the throng, and in a cheery
voice marked by the D erbyshire dia

High Prices for Jersej Cattle.
At the first day's combination sale
of Jersey cattle by Peter C Kellogg &
Co. in American Institute yesterday,
Leda, 71W, a cow 12 years old, by Jupi
ter 93, dam Europa, was sold to Mr.
W.Simpson ot New York, for 3,000.
This is said to be the highest price
ever paid for a Jersey cow at auction.
The imported cow Queen of the Farm
was purchased for 1,300 by Mr. John
G. Holly of Plaintield. N. J. Daisy
Maid of Bloomfield, 8,352, was pur
chased by Mr. T. A. Ilavemeyer of
New York, for 1,200. The same gen
tleman also bought the cow Malita
and heifer calf for 1,300 as well as
several other lower priced animals.
Mr. P. S. Gobel of Xevv Yoik paid
1,00 for a bull calf of the Situate
strain. A dozen others fetched above
$400 each. Sixty-five lots brought aa
average of 290 each.
Some of our Congressmen and Sena
tors, who have been detected of late
years only too frequently lingering the
profits that come out of fat Govern
ment contracts, must frequently sigh
to think how "them fellers of the
press" are treated in ather countries
and wish for similar good times here.
Some twelve months ago, when the
German census was bing taken, an
obscure "paper published in Souih
G iinany referred to the
an: ti.-it oi paper that was uscii m tak
ing the census, and quietly hinted that
Prinze iiismarck was the owner ol
large paper manufactories and might
be making a handsome thing of it.
The paragraph escaped the notice of
the authorities, but was copied into
other papers, and finally g-t into the
Strasburg Union. Here it was observ
ed, and the editor of the Union was
pounced upon and made to pay a
heavy fine, besides giving the name of
the other editor who wa3 guilty of
originating the enormity. That other
editor will probably get it hot.

Prohibition iu The South.
The soutiment in favor of prohibi
ting the sale of intoxicating liquors
appears to be developing with consid
erable vigor in some of the Southern
Slates. It is organizing itself, in true
American fashion, into a political
party, and proposing to exercise its in
fluence upon elections as the only way
of reaching legislation. This kind of
movement is new to the South, but it
is indicative of a healthy tendency.
While the prohibitory policy is itself
founded on a wrong principle, and is
not likely to be long upheld in an en
lightened community, the sentiment
which demands it springs from the
recognition of certain very serious
evils, and the effort to secure it is
pretty sure to result in restructions
upon the liquor traffic which are alto
gather salutary. The temperance re
form movement which began in the
States of the North-east from thirty to
forty years ago ran into many extrav
agances, not the least of which was
the "Maine law" and its imitations,
but it was nevertheless productive of
good effects, not only on the habits of
society, but on the standard of legisla
tion. It has probabiy pretty much
run its course in ikis part of the coun
try, and tin-very substantial distinc

and understood. The relation between
the lights of the individual and the
rights of the community is also some
what clea er to the popular mind than
it used to be, and it is more readily ad
mitted that citizens have personal
rights which even the majority is
bound to respect. N. Y. Times.

most remarkable horses perhaps ever
seen in this vicinity. A Mr. Town-

ance of the hors. The color was
chestnut brown, the limbs ' rit.ely
formed, and the animal stood nine

tossed his hfad tip, it seemed to rech

ImersoM's reference to Hume's death
and Adam Smith's letter gives interest
to the following note by Scott to Bos
well's entry in the diary of the trip to
"Mr, Bros well has chosen to omit
that Johnson and Adam Smith met at
Glasgow; but I have been assured by
Prof. John Miller that they did so, and
that Smith, leavinsr the party in which
he had met Johnson, happened to come
to another company where Miller was.
Knowing that Smith had been in
Johnson's society, they were anxious
to know what had passed, and the
more so as Smith's temper seemed
much rufllud. At first Smith would
only unswer: "He's a bru; lie's a
brute;" but on closer examination it
appeared that Johnson no soon- r saw
Smith than lie attacked him far some,
point of his famous letter on the death
of Hume. Smith vindicated the ti t.th
of his statement. "What did Johnson
say ?" was the universal inquiry. "Why,
he said," replied Smith with the ''eep
est impression of resentment; "he said.
You lie!" "And what did you reply?"
"I said You are a son of a!" On such
terms did these two great moralists
meet and part, and such was the classi
cal dialogue between two great teach
ers of philosophy."

Anecdote of Jackson.
Gen. Andrew Jackson, during the
latter part of his life, was in the habit
of visiting New Orleans to see his old
friends and comrades in arms and par
ticipate in the celebration of the glo
rious 8th of January. It happened on
one of these visits that the 8th occured
on Sunday. Gen. Plauche called upon
the old hero and requested him to ac
company the military to the battle
ground on the anniversary of the great
day. "I am going to church to-morrow,"
mildly observed the General.
The military preparations for the cel
ebration went on, and Sunday morning
dawned bright and beautiful, At 10
o'clock Gen. Plauche called at the St.
Chailes and informed Gen. Jackson
that the military and civic processions
were ready to accompany him to the
scene of his glory. "Gen. Plauche,"
responded Old Hickory, turning upon
him the glance of his kindlmg eye, "I
told you I was going to church to-day."
Gen. Piaucho withdrew, muttering to
himself, "I might haves known better."
The celebration was postponed till the
next day, aud Gen. Jackson listeued on
that day to one of the most eloquent
disourses of Dr. Scott iu the church on

"There is a lady living in this county
who has had five husbands. She lives
on the old Hightower trail, aud married
four widowers in succession. Tho re
markable coincidence connected with
tho good lady's matrimonial ventures
is that each one of her husbands lived
on the same road, and just one mile
and a half from each other. Tho first
widower lived one and a half miles
from the lady, who was a widow; the
second, third, and fourth, lived about
the same distance from each other, so
she has in turn had charge of each of
the resiliences, and is now living hap
pily with her fifth husband wit du seven
miles of her original home."

A touno lady in Richland Precinct
named Rowin. has been for some time
prostrated with inflammatoiy rheu
matism. Thursday last the family
sent to town for medicine. Dr. B.tl
lou put up six grains of morphine
powders, putting up one grain in one
paper as representing one dose, and
gave instructions accordingly. Tho
bearer of the medicine loft it with the
family as he passed by and probably
was not very explicit in the instruc-
tions. Anyway, the two papers being
j of about the same size the five grains
were given ner in one dose, and it was
not long until the patient showed un
mistakable signs of the mistake. On
examining the remaining powder the
family became convinced of the error,
and set about giving such emetics as
were at hand. Although the young
lady had been so sorely afflicted as to
be scarcely able to I e turned in her
bed, she was taken up aud compelled
to walk the floor all night to keep her
from sinking into total oblivion. In
the morning the doctor was sent for,
when it was ascertained the crisis was
passed, but it had been at a fearful
risk. It is in place to add that the
ordeal knocked the rheumatism "high
er than a kite," not a vestige of it be
ing left in the patient's system. S.
