Senior's father, who Is «6W dead, received the letter from San Frndclnoo which necompnnied tho body, nwd whicli asked that It should be kept by him until Rome of the dertd woman's relatives called for it, The coffin, inclosed in •ft box of California redwood, \vns put into Mr. Senior's private vault tn tho Carmino street house. No one claimed it, and there for four years it remained, until Mr. Senior removed it to the underground vaultof the cellar in Carmine street. From that time tho unburled body was forgotten, and there it lay until n few weeks ago, when Mr. Senior received notice that the building, for which be had no further use, was to bo rented. It became acces- sary to clean out the underground vault. Then the box was found. The workmen at first took it for old lumber, but when the box was opened there was found first n lot of old newspaper clippings giving eulogistic notices of one Mme. nulsley, a dancer, the framed photograph of a family group, find then, underneath these, an Iron coffin. Tho breastplate told whose body Was inside the casket. When a death certificate bad been obtained from San Francisco the New York board of health issued n burial permit, and the body of the long forgotten dancer now rests in consecrated ground. Mr. Senior found n corner for it in tho Lutheran cemetery, Long Island. The Buisley family are now but the faintest memories in the minds of tho older school of playgoers, while to the younger generation their names suggest nothing. Yet 80 years ago the appearance of their names in n playbill was sufficient to pack any house in tho city. M, Octavo Bulsley, tho head of the troop, ami his family came to this country from Paris about 83 years ago and finally settled In San Francisco. Their fume ns acrobats and contortionists had preceded them and at the Olympic theater they drew crowded houses, Among tho troop was a dark eyed, black haired, oval faced damsel whom Buisloy had discovered soon after his arrival in this country, and whom he quickly married. Her stage name was Dody. Her bewitching beauty, no less than her grace as a dancer, was sufficient in Itself to draw to her train the men about town of that day. The body which for S8 years rested in the Carmine street cellar was all that remained of Dody.—New York Tribune. She Han V»v For Gimlets. An ingenious woman has found new uses for thiit common little boring tool called a gimlet. One night, while stopping at a hotel, her room was entered and robbed. Being a traveling woman and realizing that the name thing was likely to again happen, she hit upon the gimlet asa protective measure. Every night thereafter, when fata decreed that she imist put up at a hotel, she produced her gimlets and made windows, doors and transoms no cure by boring the gimlet clean through. One night when she had gimlet eel her room so that she was absolutely safe from midnight marauders the cry of "Firel" was heard. She was up in an instant. She saw through the transom tho reflection of flames in the hallway. Escape was cut off from that quarter. She hastily unscrewed tho gimlets from tho window and looking out saw a low root 80 feet below. So practical a woman must certainly have had a clothesline handy, and such was the fact. In a jilly she had screwed two of her much beloved gimlets into the wooden sill, fastened an end of the ropo to them and dim bed down in safety to tho roof. Tho gimlets were burned up in the fire, but tho ingenious woman laid in another stock, and from that day to this you can always count on finding from a half dozen to a dozen of the gimlets in her satchel.—Now York Advertiser. A Witty Irish Fllust. Father Hcaley of Bray, one of tho very few avowed Unionist priests in tho distressful country, has been in groat form lately. Known for a long while past as one of the greatest Irish wits, he has fairly excelled himself during tho last few weeks. Tho other day an ardent politician nsked his reverence; "What do you think now, father? Mr. Tim Hualy will be in tho first Irish parliament, ]r^< chancellor, attorney general or whiitF'^Shuro, . he will be a very old man," was tho reply. At Corlcss' restaurant the other ilny Father Hculey's attention was drawn by the proud proprietor to tho fact that Miss Corless had gained some groat distinction at the Milan Conservatoire of Music. "And what are you going to do with your daughter after all this?" asked the priest. "Oh, I' shall hope to see her on tho operatic stage soon," replied Mr. Corless, who is the owner of tho most extensive oytitur beds on tho Irish coast. "You want to turn her into an oyster Patti, thon?" said Father Healoy, without a moment's hesitation.—Paris Herald, riuln Duty.

Lot us consider the difficulty in tho light of tho following experiment: Place a bull at ono eldo of tho billiard table, and With tho cuo, not hold in tho ordinary manner but lengthwise from end to end of the table, shovo tho ball across tho cloth. The cuo hero represents the wind, and tho ball thoahip sailing directly before it. Tho ball, of course, travels at tho same rate ns tho cue. Now, suppose a groove in which tho bull may roll bo cut diagonally across the table from ono corner pocket to tho other. If tho ball bo now placed at ono end of tho groove and tho cuo held horizontally, parallel with tho long sides ami moved forward across tho width of the table as before, tho ball will travel n long tho groove and along the cue, diag- ognally across tho table In tho same time as tho cuo takes to move across tho width of the table. This is tho cnso of the ship sailing at an angle with the direction of tho wind. The groove is considerably longer than the width of the table—more than double us long, in fact. Tho ball, therefore, travels, much faster than the cuo which impels It, since it covers more than double the distance in the same time. It is in precisely the same manner that n tacking ship is enabled to sail faster than tho wind.—European Traveler's Book. Sixteen Time* Marriott, Of all the extraordinary stories of female adventuresses, the account of the career of "Golden Hand," a Russian woman recently condemned to Siberia for life, reads most like an effort of fiction. Remarkably attractive and good looking, and spcakingflucntly Russian, Roumanian, German, French and English, she had been married 10 times and in turn ran away from each of her husbands, carrying off everything upon which she could lay her hands. Once before she was condemned to Siberia, but had not been there long before tho chief overseer fell iv victim to her wiles, married her and went off to Constantinople. But after a few months his wife bolted and soon after was recogni/.cd in Moscow by a police official, who proceeded to arrest her. In response to her urgent pleadings, however, ho delayed marching her off upon tho spot, and, like the rest, speedily succumbed to her fascinations, with the result that Hie woman again escaped and lived some two years in Russia unmolested, But her sixteenth husband, after she hud made off with tho bulk of his worldly possessions, finding out who she really was, speedily landed her in jail, where the:lawyer intrusted with her defense had an opportunity o£ appreciating her skill as a pickpocket. When he Went to see her in her cell, she presented him with a gold watch and chain as a token of her gratitude for his efforts in her cause. Feeling in his pocket, he afterward discovered that tho watch and chain were his own.—London Tit-Bits. Tho Sniilte'g Poison Vang. A common belief regarding snakes is that they can spit or project their venom a considerable distance and thus poison any person whoso eyes may bo too intently riveted upon tho animal. Tho poison fang —mark tho singular term, for thereby hangs this tale—is hollowed by a channel in the hinder part of it, Tho edges of this channel are curved and moot so closely us to form a sort of tube, the fang bends backward, nud until erected by tho muscles which move it Hew back against the pal- ato. When tho snako is enraged, the fang is erected. At tho base of the fang is the gland which secretes tho poison. This gland is iu close contact with tho maxillnry bone, to which tho fang is united by aivchyloscd tissue. Tho bono itsolf is movable and may bo rotated ou its transverse axis by muscles. Thus, in tho act of striking, tho snake erects its fang, and tho act of striking, bringing pressure to bear upon tho gland, causes tho fluid poison to bo forced into tho tube, and thus ejected into tho wound. Doubtless tho attempt to oscapo from its enemy onuses tho victim to forco tho fang from its erectile position in a forward direction and thus increase tho pressure on tho gland and add to tho quantity of poison injected.—New York Times. A lliiiluosB That Destroy* Intellect. "A stenographer, by the nature of his business, becomes almost devoid of ideas," said a shorthand writer. "Wo depend so much upon other people to use their brains for us, merely taking down what they say, that wo not only lose any ideas we might have had, but our memory as well. It is said that if an arm or a limb bo not exercised it will soon become useless, "I think to a great degree this is true of that part of tho stenographer's mind that 1$ brought into use in giving ideas and conceptions and retaining impressions of things said and heard, I can go to a lecture and listen attentively, but when I come out my mind is a blank as to what was said unless I've taken notes and refer to them. A stenographer becomes nothing more than a thought recording machine — without aiiy mind except that given to him by other people. "It Is most aggravating to me to bo asked to give my recollection of something and find myself utterly unable to recall the incident, I have found the same difficulty in reading. Anything that is worthy of perusal I must read over three or four times In order to remember it."— Plttsburg Dispatch. _ Auolont Rider and Home, Mrs, Fannie Million, who resides at Million, in the western part of this county, is perhaps the oldest lady horseback rider in the United States, She is 00 years of age.

TnctleM Men, -Of all tactless,mqn; perhaps the man most noted for this., shortcoming was the late Lord Derby,-who, notwithstanding his extraordinary talent, his remarkable common sense" and sagacity, lived and died a soured, disappointed, misunderstood and unpopular man. Lack of tact was likewise tho distinguishing characteristic of that other clever English statesman, Lord Sherbrooke, better known as "Bob Lowe," and It is likewise one of the drawbacks to tho success of Signer Crispi, the present Italian premier. Thus, during tho silver wedding festivities at Rome a year ago, finding himself face to face with tho empress of Germany, who immvdl- atley recognized hi/u and extended hei hand in tho most gracious way, ho showed in such a plain manner that ho had no idea who on earth she could be, and that ho considered her rather foi ward, that SUP was forced to mention her name before he could make up his mind to bow down and kiss tho extended hand. Ou another occasion, when his groom of tho chambers had just announced Lord Dufferin and thrown open tho folding doors leading in to the office of the premier, Crispi, without attempting to rise from tho armchair in which he was lounging, contented himself with airily waving his hand to the ambassador and bade him a negligent good morning, smiling pleasantly as he did so. Tho smilo was not returned, and Lord Dufferiu, with his eyeglass in his eye, stopped short on the threshold and gazed steadfastly at Crispi, with an expression of mingled hauteur and surprise. The premier at last understood, and jumping up in much confusion rushed toward tho most tactful of all Queen Victoria's embassadors,overwhelming him with apologies for his "unintentional discourtesy." —New York Tribune. Mux O'Kell on Women. Whenever Max O'Rell opens his flattering lips on tho subject of woman, feminine curs all over tho world are pricked up. Ho has been lecturing about her lately and makes some pleasing international comparisons. He said that in tho French household woman was queen; she led hei husband, and he did not complain; she knew all his affairs, Ho consulted her about his investments—that was why wealth in Franco was so stablo, because women were not speculative. Sho thoroughly understood the poetry of matrimony. In England a woman knew nothing of her husband's affairs, not as much us his clerk. Tho wife of tho peasant propric tor was tho very fortune of France—hard working, sober, thrifty, always working in tho house, tho fields, tho market. Her daughter did not wear fringes, but when sho went to service every month she paid a visit to the savings bank when sho got her wages—an English servant girl got a new hat and wad-photographed in it. The more ho saw of American women tho moro deeply ho was impressed with the conviction that they, were totally unlike all other women. There were few women to bo compared with them in the drawing room. None with whom men felt more at ease, They hud beauty, but it was not equal to that of English women, but it wus their intellectual qualities that were striking. From the ago of 18 it girl was allowed almost every liberty—she took the rest. In Europe women let tho men do cide what wus proper—in America they did it for themselves. Forcing the Iltfvul Train to Stop, Tho Jato Sir Robert Burnett of Leys hud lived iu seclusion since his health broke down, about three years ngo, just when ho was about to bo married to the eldest daughter of Lord Sempill, Sir Robert} who passed, many years of his life iu America, succeeded to tho family estate, which extends to about 13,000 acres, In 1870, on tho death of his father, Sir James Burnett, lord lieutenant of Kipcardineshire, he took a very prominent part in county business, wus u liberal landlord and presented Q public park to the town of Banchory, which adjoins his estate. Sir Robert cume into notice about 10 years ago by his litigation with the Deo- nido railway respecting the special "messenger" trains which run daily when the queen is residing ut Balmoral, nud ho succeeded in obtaining an order from the court pf session that ull such trains were to stop when required at Crathes station, which is near his place. It hud always been the practice to run these specials between Aberdeen and Utillater without stopping, and Sir Robert Burnett's triumph wus regarded in Deeside as A direct snub to the court. —London Some Copy alight Direct film T|IU«.

"Ono of tho neatest things which I remember is tho sharp trick played upon an English naval officer by a Yankee skipper during the last war with England," said tho old timer. "During the time of actual hostilities a small schooner laden with silk, wines and brandy, and belonging in Stonington, Conn., was hailed on her homeward passage by a British armed brig, when n conversation something like this took plaoo between the commanding officer of tho brig and the captain of the Kchooner: " 'Schooner ahoyl' called tho officer. " 'Hallo I 1 responded the Yankee. " 'Who commands that schooner?' " 'Brother Jonathan used tu, but I due oeaow. ' " 'Brother Jonathan — who tho devil is be?' " 'Why, you must be a darned fool not to know Brother Jonathan — everybody iu taowa knows him.' " 'Send -your boat aboard I' "'Don't know whether I shall or not, for tho boat's all soggy, and I hain't got no now clothes, Brother Jonathan's got a new coat, and if he's mind to go he may, but I am sure I shan't.' " 'Strikol 1 shouted tho Britisher. . " 'Strike? Why, I haven't nobody here to strike but dad. He's cooking, and he's crazy, and if I strike him he'll strike buck again, so it's no use.' '"What ure you louded with?' " 'Bulo goods and hens and hens' hus- bunds and hobgoblins and long faced gentry.' • " 'Where ore yon bound to?' " 'Stoningtuowri. 1 "By this time Brother Jonathan had boarded the brig, where ho was compelled to remain until the schooner was examined by the British officer. The officer, who bud gone aboard the schooner, kept on with his examination. " 'Where's your bnle goods? 1 " 'There they be, 1 suidthe Yankee skipper, pointing to some bundles of chipboards and shiuglea which he bud taken with him on his outward passuge as u covering for his curgo, "'You fool, do you cull them bale goods?' "'Why, sartlu. Don't you?' " 'Where's your hons and hens' husbands?' " 'There they be, in that ar coop there,' " 'Where's your hobgoblins?' " 'There they be, in that ur tother great large coop there.' " 'Where's your long faced gentry?' 11 'There they be, in thut «r pigstye. 1 " 'Have you got anything to drink on board?' '• 'Wo bad some rum when wo came away, but the cag'ii way down under the load; and if you try you can't get it. So it's 110 use.' "The British officer, having received but little satisfaction and having no doubt become disgusted at the seeming ignorance of the Yankee, returned on boaid bis brig in no good humor. Then, after ordering Brother Jonathan » dozen stripes with the 'rope's end,' to teach him wisdom, n hup,he left the poor simple creatures to take care of themselves. That they could do so was evidenced by the fact that the schoou er arrived at Boston with a cargo valued at 1100,000, "—Boston Herald. 4n "loiico aaw, "said Bertram Reynolds of Boston, "an imported farm, the toil as well us the product* being absolutely foreign to the surroundings.
