When Dr. W..M. Clark lived with his

County, he owaicd a small nit dog. an
English terrier, named Jack. Jack was
a remarkable dog. On one occasion he
killed one hundred rats, and when he
came out of the pit was hardly recog
nized by his friends. His cars were
gone, and his legs and throat wore as
raw as a picce-of un-ooked beef liver.

manner lighting :tlog was to watch

cars. Once Lis teeth were fastened

until his antagonist squealed enough
and started on a dead run for homo with
his tail stored Jiafoly away lictwecn his
legs. Whenever this would happen
Jack would let up on his enemy and

A youth of Ncxv York stabbed thb

wounded giri requested to be allowed to
refuse to testify against him, but her
request was not granted. The case was
continued and the prisoner was re

went before a priest and were married.
This step was taken on the advice of

Many remarkable tales have been

or other causes, have found that their
hair has turned white in a single night.
Rut there is not anywhere on record a
case where a person went to bed at

soundly until daylight and awoke in the
'morning to find that during sleep his or

such a ease until last week, when hist
this sort of an ncident occurred in Ros

the fineness and beauty of her hair,

indigestible at supper, the lady slepl
pcac -fully during the night and awoke
refreshed in the morning.
Rut on looking towardthc mirror she
saw that her hair, instead of bein

After much discussion, the committee
of a certain clu' in a remote Russian
town has drawn up the following set of
rules for the guManee of its members.
The code seems to be as Draconian as
it is original:
(1) No one shall enter tho club with
dirty boots. (2) No one shall wear his
workaday clothes if they are impreg
nated with unpleasant smells, nuch as a
scent of fish, leather, p t h. etc. (3)
At the club dances black cloth is laid
down as the correct dress. (4) In bad
weather, when tho streets are muddy,
atl members of tho club must wear shp
iiers, so as not to dirty the door. (5)
Whoever shall dare to put in an appear
ancc at a club ball in a velvet waistcoat
or a green cravat renders himself liable
to a tine of a ruble and a half, to be put
aside for the benefit of the musicians.
(6) (A very stringent rule this). It is
expressly forbidden that any member,
in the course of a soiree dansante, shall
use the ball-room curta:ns for a pocket
handkerchief. If he does be will be ig
nominiously kicked out. (7) The man
who smokes (also at a so'rec dansantc)
in the portion of the clnb set aside (or
ladies shall be instantly fined twenty
live kopecks, to go towardthc purchase
of powder or cau do Cologne for the
ladies. (8) No-member who mav han-
pen to be exhilarated, no matter how
late in the evening, shall be allowed to
introduce the can -can in a set of quad
rilles. The other rales prescribe that bo one
whoistipsv "beyond the bounds of de
cency" shall remain ia the ball-room.
The buffctier shall be responsible for
ch persons which seems rather hard
on the buffeticr. Every drankea maa
shall be fined three rabies the prodaci
