"But thon. " said tbo charming little
nrtlsto , "you know , if they were only to
bang such pictures us would bo accepted by
tlio committee in Boston or Now York , there
would bo no exhibition hero at nil.
"Very true ; and , on the other handIf
thcro were ] ust a little discretion used , and
the unutterably vllo daubs were thrown out ,
the fewer number would afford greater , because -

would not be put to the trouble of hunting

crudest productions of even talented ama
teurs on view under the nuspiccs of an ' 'Art

enough at high school exhibitions and in

part of the pulllo versed in art lias no sym

advanced uge , and that part not so
versed should not be educated to bcliovo

lery In tlio Urown building , Fifteenth and

whether their groupmg witli many inferior

detracts from them by association.

The water color part of tha exhibition , in-

on tlio average foxver undesirable features

ble because painting in water colors is much
more dilllcult than In oils , though less im-
prossitfo to the ordinary o.vo. The modern
methods of directly expressing the natural
tints with the hair pencil , as oi > ) K > sod
to the older practice of work

in color , instead of lining with the pen , huvo
rendered manipulations moro ililHcult and
the result decidedly more artistic. It is

STEALING FROM JUGGERNAUT.
A Curious Vnrn Told of an Indian
The true and tragic tulo which I ara
about to relate was told to mo mixny
years ago by a distinguished officer of
the Madras array , says tv writer in the
India Times , the facts have never ap
peared in any nowbpapor , nor urc they
to bo found in any of the police records
of the prcbiddiioy. For obvious reasons
the names have been altered ; but to
this day by the camp lircs of the great
foativat hold every your is told with
bated breath and listened to with rapt
attontjon the terrible tale of the jewels
of Juggernaut and of the vongenco of
the great god.
"Many years ago , " said my friend , "I
was quartered at Fuzarabad , an import
ant military station about ICO miles
from the Madras const. There was u
largo number of troops there of all de
scriptions , and cnrtiilnly lor half the
year the li/o / wo all led 'was gay and
"Unfortunately , at the time I was
there gambling and hotting were much
in vogue , and many men plunged and
came to grief ever their debts of honor.
Of all that gay company nobody was
more popular and bettor liicod by both
mon and women than young Fltzroy ;
but , unfortunately , ho lost money at thoraces
races , tried to recover himoolf at the
whist table , but failed , gob into the
hands of the Marwaroes , and got deeper
and deeper into the mire of debt. You
could see by his careworn and troubled
expression of face that the poor young
follow was in a real bad way. I was not
surprised , then , when ono day ho came
to mo and said : 'Major , I'm donn for.
I'm utterly broko. I cr.u't pot any moro
money in the bazaar , mid they'll run
mo in unless I can get away for a bit. I
must got to England and see if I can
raise the wind there , but goodness
knows , ' said the young fellow bitterly ,
'how I can dare ask my poor old gover
nor. Major , ' continued ho , 'I must getaway
away ; it's simply killing mo. You were
u great friend of my fnthor and prom
ised to help mo. I wish I had stuck to
your advice , but il'a too Into now. "Will
, you como away with mo'f Give out that
wo have taken ton days' lea\o for 'some
shooting. : .nd see mo down to the coast.
If I go oil alone I shall bo stopped by
thobo oursod Marwaroea. '
"Aftor boino hesitation I agreed. IIo
sent in his application for leave to
Europe on private affairs , and I gave
out that I wus going on a ton days
shooting expedition. A wock later ,
with a couple of tongas , wo had started
on our loner and wearying journey to
the count , where my poor young friend
hoped to pick up a steamer to take him
to Kuropo. On the second day out wo
mot crowds of people trumping along
men , women and children and the
next day still greater crowds. In re
ply to our inquiries wo were told that
they were returning from the great
festival of Juggernaut , hold at IJurl ,
now only BOIIIO thrco days' journey from
where wo woro. The tonga wallah kept
us interested with u graphic description
of the festival and of the great god ,
which was especially remarkable for
the wonderful jewels it possessed two
emerald eyes of inestimable value , Us
lip- , formed of the llncst rubies in the
world , and u nccklnco of priceless
"Two sun was sinking us wo neared
the town of Purl , and wo could eco the
pinnacles of the temples rise above the
trees which surrounded the place.
Half a mile the ether sldd of the town
stood the travelers bungalow , where wo
intended putting up for the night. Dur
ing the lust twenty-four hours my young
companion had Kept silence , and was
moody and almodt sullen whenever I
tried to rouse him. A more uncomfortable - .
able meal I never ate than the dinner
which was served unto us that evening ,
and I was quite thankful when the poor
lad said ho was dead beat and would go
otl to bod. My own room was on the
other side of the bungalow , and I took
my pipe and sat smoking in the vor-
andu. The moon was just rising
when I thought I saw the
liguro of a European stealing along
the wall of the compound. Strange ,
I thought , and wondered what ether
European could bo hero at the sumo
time. An idea struck mo , and I wont
across to my companion's room. There
was nobody in it , the bed wan undis
turbed. I throw down my pipe and
rushed out into the moonlight.
"A few seconds later I was out in the
road , and turned instinctively in the
direction of town. Running down , the
road , I soon came to a sandy lane which
wont outside the village waits in the di
rection of the temples , their pinnacles
standing out clear and distinct in the
moonlight. It the distance I thought J
saw the figure of my poor lad , but soon
the turnings and twistings of the lane
with its thick cactus hedges on ouch
side shut him out from my viow. In a
few minutes I was close by the big temple -
plo compound. Running up to the wall
I looked ever , and this is what I saw :
An enormous courtyard of paved stone ,
on which were lying nnumbcr of oriests ,
their white garments wrapped around
their heads and bodies. In the back
ground was placed temple after temple ,
but in the center stood ono soli
tary shrine raised on three
separate flights of stops , and inside I
could see the great black god raised on
throe other smaller ilights of colored
iniirbio stops. The moonbeams shone
directly on the god and lit up the emer
ald eyes and ruby lips , while the pearl
necklace glowed on his hugo black
bosom. Not a sound was to bo hoard
except some distant tom-tomlng on the
other end of the town. The festival was
ever and Puri had lapsed into solemn
silonco. To my unutterable horror 1
saw my companion walking right across
"Not a living creature moved until a
pariah dog rose up from near the wall ,
gave ono howl , and then slunk away
and crouched down again. Still no ono
stirred. rMy.tonguo clove to the roof of
my moutlr. il dared not shout even if I
could haVb'raisod my voice. A ghastly
horror topic" hold of mo as the idea
struck mo lllmt in his madness my
poor fri 'pw intended to save his
honor in JitUp ] greater dishonor of rob
bing the iddol. Speechless I saw
him mount * * stop after stop , and
the next inqrQout I saw him enter the
Burino notasa'tho threshhold which no
ether foot' bdj , that of Brahmin has ever
passed. Ni stops led up to the god

Hashed out two arms covered with a
hundred nay , two hundred doggers
and clasued the daring youth to the
black god's breast. At the same in-
stunt the sound of a gong broke the
stillness of the night , and in ono mo
ment the priests had cast off their cov
erings and were rushing to the shrino.
Two minutes later I saw the ama/ed and
horrified priests carrying out the life

and I turned and Hod. "
The Mlmlen btnr expresses the hope that
if a cyclone visits Nebraska this year , it will
como in such a shape "that it will lift farm
mortgages without destroying farm build ,

Some Maine lumbermen who were annoyed -
noyod by a bear stealing their molasses
out of the camp store-room put up a job
on bruin. They ( rot an empty molasses
keg , tilled the sides of it full of sharo-
pointed nails , inclined toward the bottom
tom , poured a little molasses into it ,
and set the whole arrangement out in
the buehcs near the pig pen. The
novel traj ) worked nicely. The next
morning it was found some distance
from the camp. The boar's head was
inside. Ho had stuck it in and couldn't
draw it out. A rilie-ball ondcd his
misery and his thieving.
Thomas Connor landed at Castle
garden , the other night. The next
morning ho wrote a letter to his brother
in County Kerry , Ireland , and started
olT to drop it in a latter box , near the
battery. Instead of putting his letter
in the nropor box , he opened lire-alarm
box No. 12. The box is a keyless ono ,
having a small bell on the door which
rings when it is opened. The sharp
whirr startled Connor somewhat , but
"as nothing else happened just then I
thought thnt I was safe enough"Con
nor said afterward. Finding no place
to put his letter , he puilod down the
hook that ho saw inside , thinking tha ;
it would reveal a place for the
letter. It didn't , and while Connor stood
scratching his head and wondering how
ho could post the lottpr , a llro engine
dashed up with clanging gong. Three
or four boctions of hosp were reeled off
the tender. By this lime another en
gine arrived and "a third was close bo-
hind. Then two trucks arrived shortly
after each other , and nt last Connor got
scared and ran awny. Someone told
Foreman Murray th'at Connor had
pulled open the box , and ho was ar
rested and sent to the Tombs court ,
where Justice Power discharged him
after Foreman Murray had told the
story. . The alarm had caused a com
plete blockade of business down town
in that quarter. Connor was fright
ened half to death ever the affair , but
ho said ho thought "those very funny
postmen , witl big hats an' axes. "
Samuel Carter , of Waterloo township ,
an old farmer of Athens county , Ohio ,
was boino time since very sick , and ,
thinking himself nigh unto death , ho
sent for his son , John II. , living in ono
of the western states , to whom ho
deeded his largo and valuable farm.
Unexpectedly recovering from his sick
ness , however , ho wanted hia farm back
and instituted proceedings , which were
determined by the judge deciding that
the docd transferring possession of the
farm was valid and must stand.
Charles Raymond has boon a familiar
figure aroundtNlblo's Garden for many
Raymond did not take kindly to the
ordinary indulgences that inoa usually
employ to ruin their health. Ho did
not use tobacco or drink intoxicating
lluids , but ho had one little specialty
that ho heartily enjoyed.
Ills method of dissipation or relaxa
tion after the trying duties of a night's
performance were over consisted in
eating tacks for the amusement of his
friends. There was no logerdomuin
about it , either. Ho would swallow a
handful of tacks with as muoh greed as
a love-sick maiden would candy. Ho
found out that ho. could swallow tauKs
while working at laying carpets when a
young man. IIo has swallowed several
kegs of tacks in his day , and the only
bad feature noticeable was that his ap
petite always appeared to bo on the in
crease , The explanation of the phe
nomenon is a simple ono. Raymond has
not a copper-lined stomach , as has often
boon suggested to him , but he has a
strong s'omach , into which there Hews
an unusual amount of powerful gastric
juice , which dissolved the iron.
Raymond beeamo ambitious. Tacks
wore'not tiooil enough for him , and ho
got tired of talcing them. Ho swallowed
tv dose of pins to please his admirers , but
ho never sought their admiration again
in the same way. Several of the pins
passer ! from the bowels naturally , out
Raymond began to suffer in a few hours ,
and was taken to the hospital.
The patient being thorough' anrrs-
thotii'.od , an Incision was made in the
abdomen. Thirty-two inches of the intestines -
testinos were removed , and the pins
taken out. The cavity was then thor
oughly washed with a carbolio acid so
lution , and the wound closed with silver
and catgut , sutures.
The operation had boon somewhat
prolonged by the appearance of unfor-
soon dilllculties ; and the patient was in
a low stato. Vigorous treatment pre
vented a collapse , and after the olToct
of the shock passed away , ho showed
marked improvement , being free from
pain entirely. There have been no
drawbacks. The patient has an excel
lent appetite , and the removal of the
bowel does not appear to interfere with
digestion. The immense wound in the
abdominal wall is healing splendidly ,
and most of the sutures have been re
moved. In a few days the patient will
leave the hospital , havlntr made the
record of recovery after the removal of
the largest section of intestine overtaken
taken from a human being.
The Chinese have a custom that
when a woman gives birth to a triplet
she must report the matter to the au
thorities , and on their part will present -
sent her with three little coats , ono rod ,
ono yellow and one green. Those coats
she must put on the infants in the
dark , and the ones who will got the rod
and yellow coats will bo oxaliod , while
the ono with the green coat will bo ig
noble. Such events are , however , of
the rarest occurrence , and arc re
garded as marvels of nature. The
ether day a case still pioro wonderful
occurred in Pokln , where a woman
gave birth to a pair of twins. The
family lived in a village west of Chiang
Yl Gate , and is nurnnmod Yang. Last
spring Yantr hud his son married , and
a woolc ago , to the great astonishment
of the household , the wife gave birth
to a pair of twins. The mother-in-law ,
fearing deficient nourishment , decided
to keep the two boys and cast away the
girls , which was done , but a neighbor ,
out of compassion , picked them up and
took them homo. This affair has
created much gossip in the capital.
HE SPONGED OFF THE TIGER.
And Ilnd n Most Kcmnrknblo Exploit
Which Korttinutrly Knded Happily.
When Poxon , the lion-tamer , was at
Moscow with his monugorio , he had oc
casion to employ a moujik , a fine speci
men of a Cossack , to clean out the cages
of the wild beasts , says the London
Times. The Cossack did not under
stand n word of French , and the terms
of the contract were buttled in dumb
show. By way of instructing him in
his now duties , Pozon wont through a
sort of pantomime with the broom ,
spoirge and water bucket. The moujik
wutchod him closely , and appeared to
fully understand the details of the les
son given. Next morning , armed with
a broom , a bucket and a sponge , ho
opened the first caga ho came to and
quietly blipped in , as he had neon his
master stop on the previous day into
two cages of harmless brutes ; but this
ono happened to bo tenanted by a
splendid but untamed tiger , that lay on
the lloor fast able op. At the noise niado
by the opening and closing of the door ,
the creature raised its houu and turned
its green eyes full on the man , who , all
unconscious of his danger , stood in th
corner dipping his big sponge into '
At that moment Pozon cnmo out ol
his caravan and was struck dumb by the
terrible sight that mot hia pazo. What
could ho do to warn the man of hia
danger ? A sound , a movement on hia
part might onrngo the great boast.and
hasten its attack on the defenseless
Cossack. So Pe/.on stood , awaiting de
velopments , ready to rush to the scene
when the crisis camo. The moujik ,
sponge in hand , cooly approached the
tiger and mudo ready to rub
him down , with the stolidity
of a military bootblack polish
ing 'his captain's hoots. The sudden
application of cold water to its hldo
evidently produced a very agreeable
effect on the tiger , for it began to purr ,
stretched out its paws rolled ever oil Its
back , and complacently offered every
part of Its body to the vigorous treat
ment of the moujik , who wont.on scrub
bing with might and main. All the
while PO/.OII stood there with his eyes
wide open , as if nailed to the spot.
When ho had finished his job the Cos
sack lost the cage as quietly us ho .hud
entered It , and it required the post
onergotie and expressive gestures on
the part of the lion-tamer to prevent
his repeating the experiment on a
second wild beast.
KlngH anil Queens at Dinner.
In Italy the court dines around a
table covered with a magnificent ser
vice in gold ; it is the only luxury , says
the London Globe. There are no flowers ,
and the dishes of the country are inva
riably served above all the fritto , com-
pojicd of a foundation of artichokes ,
liver , brains and cockt , ' combs. At the
Gorman court the Uncut table la that of
grand duchess of Baden. She has an
excellent French cuiHino and a Parlsjah
chief. The queen of Swcdon has a
very templing table and bill of faro
soups , almost always milk , and beef *
bleaks ; one of her favorite dishes is
composed of balls of mincc-mcat cooked
with oil and surrounded with a garnish
ing of poached eggs ; then there is al
most at each repast the national pluto ,
balmon preserved In earth.
Queen Victoria's favorlto wlno is pale
sherry , which she drinks from a beauti
fully carved silver cup inherited from
Queen Anno. The royal dinner is very
complete. The tahlo is lighted with
gold chundolabra furnished with can
dles ; orchids nlacod in oporgnes rise
up to the ceiling. The queer oats a
special bread , square , well cooked and
of a mnstiu color.
