So must I," said Campbell. "We'll
go out shootisg, Ted, and have a day's

Bright and early the next morning
they were up, and loaded with powder
and shot and a double barreled shot gun
they started off.
There wasn't a "gobbler" within 50
miles, and after five or fcix hours' patient

but not a turkey, or for that matter, any
thing else in the shape of game, had
been hit. Ted Seguin's Bight would be
spoiled by his eye glasses tumbling

pull the trigger, and Campbell scorned
anything less than a full grown gobbler

down to the hotel this evening, will
you?" said they to the poultry dealer.

was the answer. The sportsmen went
home in good spirits. -
"Did you shoot any turkeys, Sher?"
asked the ladies when they arrived at

we went out for."
"Where are they?"
"Oh, they'll be here presently we left

"What do you think of them, Zelda?"
said Seguin to Miss Harrison.

looked uj at one another.
"What did you say thote were, Sher?"
asked Fanny Stockton.
"Why turkeys, of course," said Sher,
Certainly, turkeys; we shot them
ourselves," said Ted, gifing a glowing
description of the woodt in which they
were shot and the difficulty they expe

One full-blown, in a white embroid
ered skirt, with a plaited waist, looked
like a Venetian woman of the Renais
sance. Above the divine softness of the
satin you saw her curved and pearly
neck, and on the blond tresses of her
abundant hair a simple band of floating
lace. She seemed tall and straight as
a Diana in the long folds ot her 'o;-W,
dress; her bodice, ornamented wi.
ver embroidery, delicately suggesteM
thought of a dashv hussar. She walk'
rapidly, and her dragging train tremblet
like the drapery of a goddess, while the
bouquets of brilliants in her hair flashed
like sword-blades. Another, frail, slight,
the face projecting, with a thin nose,
trembling lips, pale eyes, and hair all in
disorder beneath her diamonds, seemed
to emit fisBbes and 6parks from every
part of her person. Seated or standing,
she never seemed to touch the ground.
The inward mettle, the irrepressible out
bursts and contortions of her nervous
organization, sent momentary shivers
through her nervous frame. About this
slight neck ripples a row of diamonds
a circle of living eyes, pale as the flam
ing eyes of magic, serpents These
women chat and seem deligtbed with
their conversation. What would you
not give to hear what they are saying?

The West is represented in the list of
U. S. Patents issued 3Iay 11th, by the
Machine for Wiring Blind Slats and
Rods Walter S. Gray, Keokuk, Iowa.
Blind slats and rods are wired together
by means of two wiring heads arranged
at right angles to each other, and op

We think this yarn was spun about
the first day of the fourth mrath of
well, most any year: A mine of liquid
sulphur is now being worked near Pa
lermo, Sicily that is, the sulphur is be
ing lemoved as it runs from the fiseares
in the rock, at the rate of some forty or
filty tons a day. The sulphur proceeds
from a mine in the interior of the moun
tain, which interior is in a molten state.
The laborers, it appears, are often
obliged to stop up the fissures from which
the molten sulphnr runs, so as to give it
time to cool sufficiently to be removed,
after which the fissures are again un
stopped. It seeais that, on a recent oc
casion, on opening one of those fissures,
ao sulphur was found, and the idea en
tered the heads of the workmen to
reopea the hole bj blasting. They sac
ceeded in re-establishing a communica
tion with the interior, bat the pressure
had become so strong daring the ob
struction that the expansion of the gas
prodaced a terrible explosion, iavolving
a serioas lorn of life.

the lady in question, Mle. Latour, lately
brought back the neciiacc and claimed
the 16,000 francs, butdl. Bloch was not

The migratory nature of certain extinct
animals may -afjly be assumed from
their nihilities with living species; but
direct proof of this, of some value, has
lately been obtained in England. In a
quarry near Castleton in Derbyshire is a
fissure, called the Windy Knoll fissure,
which has been ascertained to contain
the bones of a great number of bison,
reindeer, grizzly bear, wolf, fox, hare,
rabbit, aud water rat. These were con
fusedly mingled, and the crevice has
been filled partly with stalagmite, but
mostly with lam. From the relation of
the fissure to the drainage of the sur
rounding country, it has been suggested
that the animals fell into it when they
went to drink and were washed in by
floods. Prof. Ddwkius thinks it tntty
have lain in the path of the bison and
reindeer in their aunual migrations, the
carnivorous animals being caught as they
followed the herds to run down strag
glers. From an examination of the young
teeth of the bison and reindeer, he con
cluded that those animals passed the
crevice at different seasons of the year,
sou.e falling in ou their northwird trip,
and some on the home journey. The
fissure was open in the newest pliocene,
but whether before or-after the glacnu
era, cannot now tc determined.
It is strange that the Mosaic prescrip
tion for man's diet, chiefly taken from
the tabernacle rites, have become, by
common consent, the bill of fare of civ
nized society; with variations, of course.
In the cities, especially, the maiu articles
oi food are those which the laws of Mo
ses recommended. When in former day
peoplu dieted largely on pork, many
leople became hogs themselves, and
many diseases still raging among men
have been conveyed int the hum n sys
tem by the consumption of pork, rabbits,
hares and other animal food which the
luw forbids. Physiologists understand
well enough the importance of diet, and
yet none have gone to the trouble o
giving the Mosaic dietary la5 a thor
ough scientific examination. Here are
the Jews, after 3,000 years, a healthy,
intelligent, energetic, and fertile race.
Much is said about their longevity, tem
perance, charitable disposition, etc.; still
no scientist has taken the trouble to
examine the food on which this race
lived and thrived. The point is cer
tainly, scientifically, very important.
A Folate Joke.
A certain Oregon professor was a very
fatherly sort of a man, particularly
toward his young lady pupils. When
ever a young lady would ask a question
he would place his band lovingly on her
head, address her as though she were a
little child, and make considerable more
fuss than was necessary. Of course the
girls got tired of this, and conspired to
break him of his fatherly proclivities.
One of them hit upon a plan. She fixed
up a nice little pin cushion, had the
pins inserted so that they would stand
on their heads, points upward, and then
adjusted the infernal machine on top of
her head, covering it with just enough of
her hair to bide it from view. This done,
she left her seat during lie session,
walked demurely up to the professor's
desk, stood a moment in his august
presence, and then, in a meek and
plaintive tone of voice, she asked him
for the information as to whether Wash
ington crossed the Delaware on the ice
or on horseback when he left Trenton.
He raised his hand over her head and
soothingly said: Wby, my dear little
child," Well have to end his sen
tence there, tor the balance of the
exclamation was a sort ot half howl, half
whoop, which we can neither write nor
print. Just as be said "child," be low
ered his hand caressingly out lorcibly
npon the crown of the girl's bead, and
the whole sarface of hie extended palm
felt the tickliag aad exhilarating of n

was so thick that we could' hardly see
our hands before our eyes. The bell waa
rung again. Just as the 111 rang, I
heard the ship utrike, and fell her bump
ing on the rocka; then the bumping
increased and the sea began to break in
on the deck. Before she struck a great
many male pa.Hengtr were on the deck,
looking for land. The otficcrs told us
we should see land alout 4 o'clock,
which caused us to look for It. At th
moment the veel struck the women
and children were down below. I did
not hear much noise on deck. I in
stantly ran down to the second cabin.
The women and childcn were creaming
and running out ot their cabins all over
the ship. I noticed one lady clasping
Mr. Morris and exclaiming, "Oh, we are
lost I" He said, "No, it's all right;" and
he turned as pale as a sheet. I then got
frightened myself and ran agaiuondeck,
but there were a lot of people scream
ing. I could hardly sec anybody because
of the fog. I ran then to the firnt cabin
to get a life-preserver, but some of the
men there said they were all gone. I
returned acain to the deck and jumped
into a Itoat, and the men in her drove me
nut ugain. I got in again, but Mr.
Williams, an Kngliahman,from Birming
ham, had a lile-preserver on. He came
to me, and at his lequest I helped him
in, but I jumped out myself, because we
could not get the boat off the deck, and
at this time the ea commenced to break
on the deck and the ship was bouncing,
and men, women and children were run
ning alout screamini;. I ran to the first
cabin again, and there saw a man I
knew from New York, standing there.
I heard another man tell him not to leave
because it would be the best place on
the ship. His wife and his two children
were standing by his side, and each ot
them had a life-preserver on. I think
his name was Roscmblucm. I then ran
to another boat on the quarter-deck, and
there I saw my friend Marks Powcrtee,
a German, with a life-preserver on. I
asked him where he got it, and be said
from under his pi low. I ran to the
stairs of the first cabin to get one from
my berth, but went back again, ran to
the boat where I was leforc, and placed
my hands on it. One man in the boat
said: "If you don't let go I will cut
your hands off" He said this in Ger
man. I then went to another boat and
got into it. There were seven men in it.
At that time the boat was swinging, but
it could not be let down, because the
rope was fast. I think one of the oaa
cers cut one of the ropes, and our boat
fell into the water. At that time a big
