After harmony had been established
between Gladys and the cat, peace
seemed to have been declared on her
part with all the feline race. She began
to cultivate a gaunt tomcat that came
growling into the yard, but Tom didn't
reciprocate her friendly approaches. He
had known bitter experiences, and his
instincts were pessimistic and aggressive.
He made a dive at Gladys, wbo was all
unprepared for the onslaught, and, of
course, she got the worst of k. In a lull
in the proceedings I put a bullet through
Tom's back and finished the fray. I in

with the usual perversity of his kind, be
continued to spring just enough, to take
it in the back. He crawled up a tree in
a sickening and writhing way, kicking
out his quivering hind legs, and my wife
began to cry and get white, and say she
knew she was going to faint. I begged
of her not to until I could bury my dead,
before the neighbors rushed in, and just
then the cat gave one last wiggle and
dropped out of the tree. I put my wife
on the bed with the Pond's extract bottle,
as I couldn't find the cologne, and rushed
down to Ixxry the cat under a rose bush.
Gladys looked on approvingly, and when
the grave waa smoothed over she snuffed
around it in a satfafled sort of way,
which intimated that the interment waa
all correct and proper.
The. next night when I got temMthat
cat lay under the rose bush without a
hair on its carcass, and beside it sat
Gladys triumphant, radiant and expect
ant, waiting my commendation. Some
of the dirt from that grave waa on the
parlor windows, some in the pan of let
tuce set out on the door step, and a lot
more waa over the fence in the next
yard. Well, I licked the dog as aortal,
as scientifically and handsomely as I
knew how, Tubbed her nose on the cat,
on the spade in the grave, explaining
meantime that I wanted the cat left
alone. Then I buried k again, Gladys
capering about the yard, catrnmg the
various fluttering pendant garments on
the clothes line in her teeth, aad swing
iag round and round in great glee until
the clothes tore or the pins came out.
The next night when I want home my
wife waa gone. I didst have to inquire.
I knew- without. A heavy tiger akin

room and turned upside down, wkh a

that a swollen prominence of the upper
part of the ear occurs often in crazy
people, and is an invariable indication
of hopeless lunacy. Among prize fight

Down on Main street the other day two

other had lost both his legs below the

the public heart, and but few who
dropped small coins for him had any

Professor Hartley, of London, has been
trying to find out why the sky is blue.
His experiments show that the color
arises from the action of ozone upon the
rays of light. The results of his exami
nation of ozonized air go to prove tliat it
is impossible for rays of light to pass
through so little as five miles of air with
out the rays being colored sky blue by
the oaone commonly present, and "that
the bhse of objects viewed on a clear day
at greater distances up to thirty-five to
fifty miles must be almost entirely the

laboratory experiments he observed that

A. W. Sogers has just returned from

ia rejoicing in what ia to him compara
tively coo. weather. He said: "They
don't make mnlaam for export in Ja
maica, any more. Everything they can
get for the purpose is put into rum. Rum
brings more than sugar, and anything
that will decay or ferment is put into it.
If you knew the stuff they put into rum
you would confine your drink if you
drink to potato whisky. Why, sticks,
straw, any decayed vegetable substance
seems good enough in the eyes of the
planters of Jamaica to put into their
ram. The natives of the island and the
operatives in the mill don't drink it.
Their chief drink is sugar and water."
