THE LAZY FIRST BASEMAN.
Re Was Favored by Rain Until the Manager
Drowned Him Out.
The retired left fielderwas tolling the
story. "Hank McGinnis , " ho said ,
"was the greatest first baseman 1. aver
seen. Ho could play the bag outer sight
when lie was a mind to , but he was we
laziest man in 27 counties , and he
didn't play no ball when ho could git
outon it. Ho was allays turnin up with
a spiked foot or a split thumb or some-
thin of the kind , an ginerally made out
to lay off more'n half the time. The
summer we were playin in the Western
league we struck a manager who was
onto Hank's curves. Ho took him to
one side when the season begun an tel
him that ho wouldn't stand no grafts.
He marked out to him that if ho didn't
play every day ho would git laid off an
lose his pay. Sore heels an thumbs was i
"Hank , bein lazier than ever that
year , was considerbul stirred up about
this. Ho didn't have no likin to play ,
but he was hot after the long green , an
he kep' playin along an kickin like a
bay sterr all the time. Finally ho got a
couple of days' lay off an went to see
his mother , so he said. ' Ho got back on
time an complained of being sick , but
the manager ton him t' git inter th'
game or lose 20 cold plunks , an ho got
in. Nei' day we couldn't play. There
was a big rain. ' Jus' before the time
t' call the game on the day after that
they was another big rain.
"An it went on like this fer a straight
30 days. It would allays rain jus' before -
fore the game , whether wo was home or
away. Hank he got fat loafin around
an was on first rate terms with hisself.
Finally the manager had to let out some
of the men to reduce expense , an Hank
got the run Then the rains stopped.
Now , what do you think that man done
so's he could git his money without
workin ? Seems he knew somethin about
rainmakin , an when he took that trip
home he got his chemicals together an
didn't do a thing but make rain every

There is in one of the departments
in Washington an old maid whom I
call St. Murphy , not because she is so
saintlike in appearance , for my saint
has a jolly face , and in that woman ,
whose hair is sprinkled with gray and
upon whose cheeks the roses of youth
have ceased to bloom , I see a beauty
that leaves nothing to be desired.
She comes into the dining room accompanied -
companied by a little girl and boy. My
woman's eye soon detects something a
little out of the usual. The children
look too young to be hers , so I make inquiries -
quiries and find that they are hers by
adoption. She found these children with
a dying mother , whom she made happy
by promising to care for them. How
faithfully she is keeping her promise !
She has taken them to her heart. They
show , as children always do , that they (
have not only food and clothes , but love ,
and plenty of it. Do you wonder tha. I
call her saint ? Here is that woman , at
the age when women soonest tire , going
daily to her work , no matter what the
weather , cold or rain , denying herself
that she may make these children com-
fortable. When I see her in the evening ,
weary from her day's work , but her
dear old face beaming with love , I say
to myself , "There is a woman who has
won heaven , and I am glad to have
known her , " and I murmur , "God bless
yon , Miss Murphy -Harriette P.
Crabbe in Minneapolis Housekeeper.
A French chemist has lately made
some investigations in a field nothither-
to so thoroughly explored as many others -
ers , and from them he draws the con-
elnsion that chemical reaction cahh.ot
occur between 125 degrees and 150 ne-
grees. Sulphuric acid and ammoiia
will not react at 80 degrees , while at 00
to 65 degrees the action is sud&n and
violent. Neither caustic soda nor caustic
potash can be made to unite with the
same acid below 125 degrees C. nor
with carbonates below 80 degrees. With
the latter , brisk effervescence sets in
about 30 degrees. If nitric instead of
sulphuric acid is used in such experiments -
ments , the temperature where reaction
begins seems to be lowered in every
case.-New York Sun.
Mrs. Alice N. Lincoln thus describes
her feelings while watching a cremation -

itnal , so elevating in the al soluttrpurity
of the intense heat that it seemed to all
of us who stood there far less appalling
than the blackness of an open grave. '

FELL INTO MILLIONS.
117he Slip or rn Horse Resulted In the Rider
Dh covering a Great Mine.
One of the most productive minas in
California was discovered through an
accidental fall of the discoverer. He
was ono of a hunting party that had
gone out from San Francisco during the
Christmas holidays. While passing
alohrg the side of a steep hill on a narrow -
row trail his horse suddeuly slipped ,
and with his rider went down into the
Happening to be the last in the line
' and some distance behind the others , be
was blot missed for some moments , but
when his absence was noticed the party
turned back to look for him , fearing
some untoward accident. Ho was nowhere -
where to be seen , but the place where
his horse had slipped and fallen over
i the bank , together with the traces of
the fall , was plainly visible. Fallowing
the tracks made by the falling horse and
man , and when near the bottom , the
men suddenly came upon an interesting
spectacle. Just behind a clump of bushes
which the man and his steed had
crashed through on their way down
stood the horse , apparently uninjured ,
while near by , on a slab of rock projecting -
jecting from the snow , the man was
capering like an Indian at a ghost
The first impression of the rescuing
party was that the man had gone suddenly -
denly crazy , but as lie caught sight of
them he suddenly ceased his gyrations
and shouted for them to approach. They
came , when lie showed them several
lumps of almost pure gold ho lead hastily -
tily knocked from the edge with a stone
for a hammer and announced his discovery -
covery of a gold mine. The sliding
horse had brought up against the ledge ,
and the restive animal , kicking vigorously -
ously in the efforts to rise , had struck
off the moss from the stone : aid disclosed -
closed the fact that it was a gold bearing -
ing ledge of unusual riclmess. The find
was appropriately named "The Christmas -
mas Gift , " and avaluablegiftitproved

KYRLE BELLEW'S VANITY.
how It Was Once Sadly Disconcerted byan
There had been lively discussions
some years ago over a then seemingly
important question theatrically , and indeed -
deed socially , "Was or was not Kyrle
Bellew possessed of great vanity ? "
I believe the matter has never been
definitely settled , though in an individual -
ual instance I recall it would seem there
was valid ground for a decision in the
The occasion was an informal "even-
ing" at Mrs. Lester Wallack's. and
gathered about one of the tables were
two or three young ladies , Mr. Bollew.
and other men. Bellew had some bits of
paper in his hands , from which he was
idly fashioning little boats. "I hair , "
he drawled , addressing no one in particular -
ticular , "that your American navy is
badly in need of ships. I propose to
remedy the trouble by presenting you
with a few. " One girl spoke up quickly
in slightly sarcastic vein , "I am sure
we all render sincere thanks in the
name of the American navy. "
The actor favored her by an especially
comprehensive glance , and finishing his
boat penciled a few lines on it and
rather patronizingly tossed it over to
The girl picked the boat up slowly
( this was the first occasion she had met i
Mr. Bellew ) and read : "My love to you.
Kyrle Bellew. " A rather vivid flush
overspread her face , but looking the
young man steadily in the eyes she said
in tones sufficiently clear for comprehension -
hension , "The sentiment inscribed here
indicating the paper boat ) is surely too
much oP an honor for any one woman
to aspire to ; so , with your permission ,
Mr. Bellew , I will take it home , raffle
it and-send you the proceeds. " She
then rose , bowed and left the table , at 1
the same time leaving Mr. Bellow sufficiently -
ciently disconcerted to bite his lips and
permit his brow the shadow of a frown.

A Unique Affidavit.
The following affidavit was filed in
court of common pleas in Dublin in
1822 : "And this deponent further saith
that , on arriving at the house of the
said defendant , situate in the county of
Galway aforesaid , for the purpose of
personally serving him with the said
writ , he , the said deponent , knocked
hero several times at the outer , commonly -
monly called the hall door , but con1d
not obtain admittance , whereupon this
deponent was proceeding to knock a
fourth time , when a man , to this deponent -
nent unknown , holding in his hands a
musket , or blunderbuss , loaded with
balls or slugs , as this deponent has since
heard and verily believes , appeared at rene
ono of the upper windows of the said 1
house , and presenting said musket , or t
blunderbuss , at this deImn'mt , threatened -
ed 'ghat if said deponent ( lid not instantly -
