How Mitchell Got Kven with the The immense financial institution that is a Jar™ portion of the wcnlth loft by Mr. Mitoholl was eliart.orvsd by the territorial legislature of Wisconsin na a inert) irisiirjinou i!cmij)any anil was prohibited from exorcising bunking powers. It did a rpguliir banking businoss under various musks, how- over, from tliu lirst, and never did an Insurance, business. Tho canny Scots by whom it was established took no chances. Fire and marine insurance involved risk; a cunsful banking business does not. As .soon as the chnr- aeter of the new corporation became known, the legislature annually attempted lo repeal its charter. In these recurring disputes with the lawmakers, Mr. Mitchell auijulred that wonderful skill in lobby practices which lie often used in defeating adverse legislation on railroad and other subjects. He learned lo know men and how to persuade or drive them into adlierance with his views. He often paid for lobby assistance, and sometimes paid high prices for poor services, Whether" he knew that his money sometimes went into the hands of a member is doubtful— that is, as to exact knowledge. But lie estimated men at about their value, and generally guessed tho probable destination of the funds that lie had invested. The territorial legislatures were cheaply managed, a fow hundred dollars going father than many thousands would now go. He was always in attendance at, Madison when bills to repeal his charter were pending, and ho was well heeled. Once, however, he fooled the hoys. He waited till late in tho session, when the repeal bill had passed one house and was well under way in the other. Ho then took the stage and made the two days' ride to Madison. I5y accident or design ho readied there, cold and shivering, while the house in which the bill was ponding was acting on it in its iinal stages. Ho walked into the center of the chamber, and squared himself with his back to the big stove with which it was wanned. He then unbuttoned his coat and throw it open across his breast, disclosing as if by the merest accident thu stuiVed end of a long, fat pocket-book, from' which the bank notes protruded as if the sum were a large one. He turned around once or twice so that all saw it, when ho sort of shook his coats again together. Winks and signals passed around tho house, and tho bill was ellbcUially killed and tho nails clinched that held its coflin together, while it was too late to introduce another. Seeing the end Mr. Mitchell quietly buttoned up his coat, made a sweeping, bow, as if to say "I'll sec yon later, gentlemen," and loft tho chamber. When, after tho adjournment, his /colons friends sought him ho was gone — back to Milwaukee. "How much did you leave for tho boysV" ho was asked when lie reached home. "Xot a dom'd cent!" was his chuckling roplv. In 1844 Mr. Mitcheirbecame tired of those annual raids on his business, and refused any longer to incur tho labor .and- expense of defeating them. The legislature then passed a hill vcpcivling his charier, but ho gave it no attention. His business was conducted afterward the same as before till tho state banking aet wont into ciVect, in 1852, when tho Wisconsin Marine and Fire •Insurance Company bank was organized under the now law. • i Fancy Clocks. The old Yankee clock-tinker has drifted into New York, and is making fewer acquaintances but moro money than of yore, writes a correspondent of the Indianapolis News. Ono of tho clock experts of tho city, D. W. Bradley by name, left his route in the country, came to the metropolis, and made fefJOO a year winding and repairing the ten tower-clocks then in this city. An ora of competition in clock- winding, as in everything else, struck Now York, and now a dozen men are at it, and now tho old winders, like Mr. Bradley, have gone into tho scr- vico of tho extensive olookmakers at handsome salaries. Two winders have almost a monopoly in tho care of tho many tower-clocks, which they wind once a week, ami they earn their money, for it is hard labor to raise a twolvo-hundred-poiind weight with a thousand or moro turns of a key. Tiffany & Co. employ a cloekmaker to devise curious timepieces, and ho has under him livo men who are busy all tho time winding clocks in private houses, which they visit oneo a week. Some of tho Fifth avenue mansions have from twenty to thirty clocks, from the $1 clock in the servants' room to the f!5,000 timopieuo in tho grand hall. Ten dollars or more a month is paid for this service, and tho winder, who must bo n clock-tinker as well, and koup tho timepieces in order, has a certain day for visiting each house. To do his work without intruding on privacy requires tact. Mr. Bradley Martin, tho millionaire lawyer of New York, has the finest collection of clocks in llio metropolis, although it dors not equal the famous assortment owned by Kdilor George W. Childs, of the Philadelphia, Ledyar, There aro so many clock- fanciers in the country that one New York llrm. hns special olockmakers turning out unique timepieces that average $1,000 apiece in value. The latcHl wrinkle is a clock with no figures on the dinl, each hour being indicated by a grotesque face of distinctive type. It is .somewhat of a novelty on asking the owner of such a clock the time of day to be lolil: "It Is half-past the Indian" (half past 1:2 o'clock), or "A mwrti-r Must tin- iiegni," t; uVlouk indicated by the laughing Klhiopiaii. A cluck of wliifh tlii'iv is (ID counterpart has just been finished for an eccentric Now Yorker, whose hobby is correct time. He was famous for punctuality ill business; in fact, U proved tho foundation of his wealth, and ho has had Till'any's cloekmaker turn him out a tlmoploco worth a mnall fortune. It Is a very plain hall clock, it-s distinctive- foaturu being four pendulums. TliuMt oquallno thu running of thu clock- works BO thftt It kcops correct time. After Now York, Rhode Island and Connecticut buy tho most expensive clocks. Tho professional winders hnvo to make weekly trips to surrounding towns to wind clocks in the homes of rich patrons. A large amount, of capital is invested in electric-clock corporations in tho metropolis. Thero have been half a do/.en or more styles of electric clocks since their manafaetiiro was begun about 1885, ono of tho latest, being a clock of obliging pattern which winds itself, every twelve hours Uy an electric motor. It conies as near perpetual motion as machinery after a fruitless struggle of many years has been able to got. The six big clock factories of tho United States, all of which are in the same suction of Connecticut,, ship immense quantities of clocks from this city to all lands. The Chinese and Japanese nations took to American clocks with great eagerness after tho Centennial, and the manufacturers had to hire natives to paint the dials wUh Chinese or Japanese, characters. The trade suddenly fell oil'and an Investigation revealed n* the cause tho fact that the ingenious Chinese had begun to counterfeit the clocks, and were turning their product out at prices that the American makers couldn't touch, How to Catch Monkeys. A gentleman who returned recently from Aspinwall tells tho following curious story of the manner in which tho natives of tho interior of the Isthmus of Panama capture monkeys: "Almost all the pot monkeys in this country," said ho, "come from Gov- gona, ii small village halfway on the line of the Panama railroad. The inhabitants aro mostly native negroes, for no white man could live in the village a month unless ho drank whisky and took quinine constantly. The surrounding country is swampy and covered with a dense mass of luxuriant •vegetation. At nightfall a thick miasma rises from tho ground and hangs over the forests like a cloud. This place is the monkeys' paradise. They travel through tho forest in troops, going wherever tho king monkey leads. When the natives have been apprised of the presence of a troop they go about warily to capture them. Their plan is a simple ono. A hole is cut in the shell of a cocoanut just largo enough to admit a monkey's unclosed paw. The cocoanut is scooped out and a lump of sugar placed in tho hollow. A string is then attacked to this novel trap and the negroes conceal themselves until the monkeys pass by. Curiosity is one of the chief characteristics of these little creatures, and when they espy tho cocoanut lying upon the ground they come down from the trees and proceed to inspect it carefully. Tho lump of sugar does not long escape their notice, and one of them thrusts a paw through tho aperture to grasp it. With the lump of sugar clasped in his hand he finds it impossible to withdraw it, nor will his greedy nature allow him to abandon his prize. Tho negroes have no difficulty in drawing him nearer and nearer to their ambush, the whole troop scampering madly about him, chattering and gesticulating as only monkeys can. When they have arrived within easy reach a large net is thrown out and they are made prisoners. Twenty or thirty are often caught at one haul. Tho natives sell them to tho employes of the Panama railroad, who in turn dispose of them in the American market/'— New York Mail and .Express. Enjoy Life. • What a truly beautiful world we live in! Nature gives us grandeur of mountains, glens and oceans, and thousands of means of enjoyment.

Mr. Cavendish Bentinck, whose marriage to Miss Livingston was a Now- port sensation of somo years back, is a bosom friend of Mr. Gordon Bennett. Perhaps tho bosom would not bo as warm to him if Mr. Bonnott know this story: That gentleman on tho occasion of the wedding, purchased at a Newport shop and sent to tho bride and groom two superb umbrella stands. Why bo should regard an umbrella stand as an appropriate wedding gift, is not, exactly elear, but Mr. Bennett has ideas of his own oneo in a while. A conplo *of weeks after the wedding Mr. Cavendish Beutinek stalked into the shop whence Mr. Bennett's gift had come and wanted the. dnalo.r to buy tho stands back. "They are a damned nuisance," ho said, "aVid wo cawn't imxke, any use of them, don't you know. So 1 thawt you might make a cash otVah on them and take them awf our hands." "Well, sir,", replied the urbane shopkeeper, "I'll tell you wluitl' I'll ask Mr. Bennett, and if he has no objections"— "Bless mo soul!" gasped Mr. Cavendish Bentinck, quite aghast. "That'll uovaw do, don't you know. Gad! nevaw." The stands were afterward sold to a second-hand shop.— London Society. Their Business Booming.

Truly n Household Keinedy. 240 Bedford Av., Brooklyn, N. Y., Mar. 12, 1884.—I have used Allcock's Porous Plasters for the last twenty years. They are truly a householc remedy. If one of my children has a cold and wheezes, I put an Allcock's Porous Plaster on the chest and one between the shoulder blades. If any o: the children have croupy coughs, 01 coughs of any kind, I place the Plaster close up around the throat: tho soothing effect is apparent almost always in twc hours. If they have a disorderec stomach, a Plaster placed just below the chest bones makns digestion perfect in half a day. If there is any looseness of .the bowels, accompanied by coldness cf tho skin, two Allcock's Porous Plasters applied over the stomach cure in from two to livo hours. I notice particularly that these Plasters never abrade the skin or cause the slighosl irritation.
