Stories f Frederick the Great.
In the course of some military evolu
tions Frederick the Great of Prussia,
irritated by some mistake of a captain,
ran after him with his stick in order
to strike him. The captain ran away.
The next morning the commanding of
ficer reported to the kins that the offi
cer in quo! ion. one of the most effi
cient hi the regiment, had sent in his
papers. "Tell him to come to me,"
said the king. The ollicer. in great
perturbation, came. "Good morning,
major," he apostrophized the ollicer,
who was speechless with surprise. "I
wanted to tell you of your promotion,
but you ran so fast I could not catch
you up. Good inornin."
Another time an ollicer attempted to
pet :i comrade into bad odor with the
king by telling his majesty that he
was a drunkard. In a subsequent bat
tle the hitter's fitness was conspicu
ous, whereas his slanderer played a
very poor part. When afterward he
defiled past the king at the head of
his regiment his majesty called out to
him in a voice of thunder, "The sooner
you take to drink the better!"
The Old Time Surgeon.
Before anaesthetics were known the
surgeon's only expedient was to abridge
his patient's sufferings by working
rapidly. In this the old time surgeons
did wonders. They had a control and
a surety In their hands that are now
seldom found. One day the celebrated
surgeon Maisonneure had to amputate
the leg of a poor devil, who began to
howl in advance. "I'll give you my
watch," said the surgeon, "if the oper
ation lasts more than a minute." The
man accepted the offer, but was oblig
ed to forego the handsome watch, as
the operation took less time than It re
quires to describe. To amputate an
arm at the shoulder is a most difficult
operation. Dr. Langenbeck of Ger
many did it in two minutes. A young
physician who came to see him per
form the operation adjusted his spec
tacles Jo his nose so as not to lose a
single movement, but when the spec
tach-s were in place the operation was
over and the severed arm lay on the

A. Cole, for many years a resident of
this county, died at his home in the

was past eighty-tire years of age and for
many years baa been very feeble. He
was a soldier, having served through the
war with Sherman as a member of the
Twenty-third Volunteer Infantry.
While bottling pop the lntter pnrt of
last week italph Jiohineon came near
losing the sight of one eye. A bottle ex

entered his left eje. H struck the ball
and made quite a cnt. but mi&ed the
iris about a quarter of an inch. A little
more and the sight would have been in
jured. Bottling is hazardous work and
particularly dangerous to tho eyes.
It's getting dangerous to fool around

Sunday afternoon he went down tospear
a few iish. He wasquite successful and
among the catch was a big gar. He
thfew the tish on the bank along with
the rest but it got to jumping about so
lively that ho had to leave the water and
subdue it. In the tiiHel the gar struck
him in the lleshy part of his leg just
above the knee with the snw-iiko tooth
on its nose. In trying to extrnct the
jagged spear-like tooth a portion was
broken off in the llesh and he was com
pelled to come to town nnd have Dr.
Jones cut it out, a deep incision being
necessary before the piece could lie ex
tracted. Hereafter Mr. Mcllargne will
insist on a gar promising to abide by the
Marquis of Qneensbury rules before he
enters into a bout with one.
