TELEPHONE No. 58 WEDNESDAY EVENING. DEC 1, 189S. Great Shooter* of Bnrop*. In Europe, where the question of a game supply does not enter into consideration, killing for count is recognized as legitimate and sportsmanlike. He is considered to bnve made a record of honor who has bagged the largest numbers of birds or other game. Thus we read of ouo Trnuttmansdorff — Prh.^e Carl Trauttrnausdorff—who has to bis credit |or n single day's shooting the slaughter if 8C2 head of game, with the best bag of pheasnute, 803; of partridges, 033; of hnres, 416; of rabbits, 638; of roebuck, 12; of fallow deer, 20, and of blackcock, 14, and a best year's count of 10,833 head of assorted game. Another rcroTil smasher is Earl de Gray, whoso exploits have been dnly tabulated for a series of years, from 1867 to 1895. His pheasants score waa 111,119, with 89,401 partridges, 47,403 grouse, 26,747 rabbits, »nd as many hares, 2,735 snipe, 2,077 woodcock, 1,393 wild duck, 567 deer, 13 buSalo, 11 tigers, a couple of rhinoceroses, and 9,000 assorted, making a total of 316,699 for the entire period, or about 11,000 annually. This is a record which the moat industrious market shooter in this country would needs work hard to equal. In very truth the noble sportsman must have been a mon- omaiiiac in the field. Yet for all hia slaughter the game supply where he shot has uot been permanently diminished.— Forest and Stream. How Indians Svrca.r Pionsly. It is said that a certain tribe of Indians have a useful divinity which they call a swearing god. It is very small, equally ugly and even more convenient. It generally stands on a pedestal or ia nailed to the wall of tbe living room, and the uso of the picturesque language in its presence- is accounted not a sin, but a pious duty. Thus if an. Indian bruises bis finger,or hia caynse steps into a prairie dog's hole and wickedly breaks bis leg, he confines himself to general remarks on the weather'until he reaches home and sees again the comforting face of tho grinning devil. Then he becomes suddenly possessed of the eloquence of a mule driver, and the things that he saya would make any ordinary effigy shrivel up with horror, but the swearing god ia used to it. After all, so called civilized beings are not so far beyond the Indian. When we get angry at a man we burn him in effigy, or hang np a doll whose distorted features convey our impressions of his unworth. auJ throw stones at it—New York World. Sf ILL QUIBBLING. Dons Will Save All They Can From the Wreck. JUDGE DAY'S TERSE STATEMENT. Development. above- th»« ._ general way white children exhibit more diversity in their measurements and the negro more uniformity, thia becoming even more marked with age. Thus, the negro children are taller at the same age than the whites, but thero are no marked differences up to the age of about 14. The size of tbe head is somewhat smaller in the negro, teeth are stronger and healthier arid more regular, and the cutting period more strongly defued. There is a decided negro ear, which ia smaller and has a drooping upper lobe, often with an angle. Tbe negro body ia less fat and baa relatively more muscular development in both sexes. The arm spread is greater and hands and feet both average longer The thighs are more prominent in the middle, and the legs are smaller.—New Fork Tribnne. A \oble Critic. When Pope was first introduced Lord Halifax, to read his "Iliad," the noble critic generously criticised this pasage and that word at frequent intervals. The poet was string with vexation, for tbe parts that most pleased him were the ones mos; criticised. As he returned home with Sir Samuel Garth, he revealed his displeasure. "Oh," said Garth, "you are not acquainted with his lordship; be mnat criticise. At the uext visit, read him the same passages and tell him you recollected his criticisms. " Pope made use of this stratagem. Lord Halifax waa delighted and exclaimed, "Pope, they are now inimitable!" It Not Only CortinVd to the FaMtnc of the Oldest Power on Eurth and tho Advent of tlia Newest, but 1'ut an Euil to I'titty and Senseless Bickering. Paris, Dec. 6. — The history of the document which will certify the passing of the oldest colonial power in the •world and the advent of the newest was epitomized by Judge Day in a single sentence: "A peace treaty can contain anything which the victors put into it." The Americans listened for four hours with their customary patience to the technicalities convoked by the Spaniards with their customary shrewdness and persistency against every proposal making for the dis- membermeut of their empire. The burden of the Spanish arguments was that matteis outside the bare cession and evacuation of the conquered territories, which the Americans proposed to cover by the treaty, were beyond the legitimate and customary scope of a peace treaty. Behind this bulwark Senor Montei* Rios, president of the Spanish commission, fortified himself, bombarding his opponents with a supply of arguments and precedents whir-h inspired the freely expressed admiration of the Americans. Judge Day summarized the American position in the foregoing memorable uttera- ?e. It was given and taken iu good spirit, and from that moment the proceedings were entirely friendly. The session accomplished much. Eight open questions were canvassed, seven being practically settled without noteworthy friction. The bargain for a coaling station in the Carolines was not cement-d, and according to present prospects it is likely to fail. The Spanish commissioners continue fighting with tooth and nail to procure every possible pecuniary and other concession. The Americans had already promised to guarantee the return of Spanish prisoners in the hands of the Filipinos. Now Seiior Montero Rios proposes that the United States pay the expenses of shipping them to Spain, arguing with his customary ingenuity that this vvas tie duty of the Americans as a matter of course. The Americans thought the request unreasonable and a good deal of time was consumed in discussion of the question. Another problem entailing long de- hate was the disposition to he made of the Spanish munitions of war in a number of military posts outside ot Manilla which the Americans have not captured. The Spanish commissioners contended that Spain should be permitted to ship such munitions home. The Americans replied that as the United States had conquered the Philippines these munitions were spoils of war. The Spaniards finally waived their quibble. Knded In Blood.

A* Otber* Do It. Washington, Dec. 6. — Lieutenant Colonel R. M. O'Reilly, chief surgeon, and Lieutenant Watson will start in a day or two on the hospital steamer Bay State from New York -for Kingston, Jamaica, to make a thorough investigation of the British method of caring for troops in tropical climates. Surgeon O'Reilly is to be the chief su.- geon at Havana under the temporary occupation. From Porto Rico. New York, Dec. 6.—The United States transport Mississippi arrived in quarantine. She sailed from San Juan, Porto Rico, on Nov. 30, where she \\ i detained some days on a suspected case of yellow fever from Santiago de Cuba, the patient being removed to tha lazaretto there. Too Hasty. "Raggles, I am in some embarrassment. I want to make a present of a jewel box, appropriately inscribed, to a young lady"— "Corbus, I'm sorry, but I haven't a cent"— "Confound yon, rlid yon think I was asking yon for money?

"CorbnH, you interrupted me. 1 was about to t-iiy that I hadn't a sentiment iu my mind that would be appropriate to the occasions. "—Chicago Tribune. Gomez tu Move. Havana, Dec. 6.—General Maximo Gomez, the commander in chief of the insurgent forces, has ordered that apartmentf be prepared for him at his residence in Guanabacao, now ^c- cupied by his niece. The general will come here after the completion of the evacuation. Siot Exac In cue of Miss Mnlock's stories she says that "a cheerful heart seeth cheerful things, ' uud gives this incident iu proof of it: A lady ami gentleman were in a lumber yard situated by a dirty, foul smelling river.

Chicago, Dec. 6.—As a result of friction between the Chicago board of education and Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews, superintendent of the Chicago public schools Dr. Andrews has tendered hia j resignation. When Dr. Andrews came to Chicago from the east it was with the understanding on his part, it is claimed, that he was to have full ">i- thority as to the appointment of principals and teachers. But nominations made by him have not been confirmed by the hoard and there has been a decided lack of harmony between the board and Superintendent Andrew- The Woman and (b* Olree<«»r. "I have been amused ninny a time," eaid a clerk in a drug store, "to note tbe way women consult the directory. They never turn swiftly to a name like a man, skipping down through the alphabetical snbclassificatiou, but pore over it by sectious. as if it were a novel. If a man doesn't find a name exactly where It ought to be, he etops instantly and walks off, but a wornau will examine everything under (hat letter before she gives up. Moreover, she is sure to be reminded of other people in the course of the search and never fails to look them np also. "A lady came in one morning, sat down and opened the book. She would linger over ouo part for awhile and then turn to another, keeping tbe places with her fingers and bent apparently on reading the whole thing. Meanwhile at least half a dozen men collected behind her, all waiting impatiently to get a chance at the volume. Ac last she turned around and was startled to see the crowd. 'Ar you quite through, madam?' asked one of the men. 'Ob, yes,' she replied, 'I was just running through it to §ee who wat> there.' It's an everyday occurrence for women to come in to wait for a car and get so interested in the directory that they miss a dozen or so. The book seems to have a weird faa- ciuatiou for the ees."—New Orleans Times-Democrat. "A Dangerous Man." Here is a story illustrative of the ignorance of the colonies that once prevailed in the colonial office and is not yet entirely banished from Downing street. As we all know, the late Lord Carnarvon, when colonial secretary, officially recorded hie opinion of S. : Gorge Grey as "a dangerous man." Sir Charles Gavan Duffy, on one of his visits from Victoria, called upon Lord Carnarvon in Downing street, and in conversation chanced to introduce a reference to Sir George Grey. "A very strange and comprehensible character," said Lord Carnarvon, with a shake of the head. "I hear ho has now withdrawn to an island off the coast of New Zealand and surrounded himself with a number of wallabies." "Oh, yes; I tbiiik that is not at all improbable," replied Sir Charles. "Yon surprise me," rejoined Lord Carnarvon. "What must be the state of morality in a country where yon make light of such a proceeding?" "Why, my lord, what do yon suppose a wallaby to be?" "A half caste female, of course. Is that not so?" "Certainly not; a wallaby is simply a small kangaroo."—London Chronicle. StatiBticti of Marriage. The chances at birth that baby •will eventually marry are 9 in 20, or rather less than one half. This result may seem surprising, but it is largely accounted for by the great mortality of persons under marriageable age, especially of infants up to the age of 5. No fewer than 38 per cent of babies die before they are 6 years old, and 44 per ceut of the whole population before the age of 18. In England, as in this country, according to belief, the females outnumber the males. Out of every ]00 persons now living, 60 are single, 85 are married and 5 are widowed. So that on the average 1 person in every 20 you meet in the streets, in the train, or wherever it may be, will be either a widow or a widower, and 3 out of 5 will be unmarried. In England an average husband and wife on their wedding day may expect (4» l, together for 27 years, in France only 28, in Holland and Belgium 23, but in Russia 30.—New York Home Journal. The Hebrew One of the results of the Zionist congress at Basel is the reappearance of the Hebrew flag. At the meeting place of the delegates a flag was hoisted which bad two blue stripes on a white field, and between these the sis pointed star, or sign of David. It was explained at that time that a similar flag was USL. as the standard of (he Hebrews in the days of the Hebrew nation. Picture 0 and descriptions of the flag came to the United States with accounts of the proceedings of the congress, and dwellers in tbe New York Grhetto began to look for Hebrew flags. The consequence was that the American Flag company turned out a quantity, for which there was ready sale.—New York Tribune. For Fish. The natives of Kottiar, in Africa, are in the habit of digging every year, in the summer, the dry banks of the Vergel river fo* fish, which they dig oat by hundreds, just as they would potatoes. The mud 1'irnps are broken open and the fish, perhaps 8 or 10 inches long, will alwayt be found alive, and often frisky, as if just removed irom its supposedly native element—the water. In the dry beds of several African rivers a similar practice is often pursued. A kiud of mud fish buries itself while the bottom is still moist, and remains tk-are all the summer, waking up when the rains commence aguiu.

"I'd like something to eat," said the frazzled pilgrim at the kitchen door. "I'm that tired and hungry I don't know which way to turn." "I'll show you how to do that," encouragingly replied Farmer Haycraft, picking up a dull ax and leading him in the direction of the grindstone.—Chicago Tribune.

Detroit .Shut Oat. Detroit, Dec. 6.—The greatest snow and wind atorm ever known here ha3 kept communication by wire from this city practically at a standstill for '4 hours.

Dean Monahau relates an incident which illustrates the absence of small change in the early days of Kansas. In 18G8 be went into the postoffice at Hays 3ity, threw down a quarter and asked for a postage stamp. "Want only one?" queried the postmaster. "Only one," replied the novelist, whereupon the postmaster handed him a stamp and raked in the quarter. "Don't I get any change?" demanded Mouaban. "Change, ti—11" replied the government official ' We have no change in these parts smaller than a quarter!" And this was strictly true. In Hays C/ity the smallest coin known was the 25 cent piece. A glass of beer sold for a quarter, and the same charge was made for a pound of crackers or a cigar. It ia related in the early annals of the town QOW the saloon and dance hall keepers tield an indignation meeting to take action in the case of a new man who advertised to sell two glasses of beer for a quarter. Tbe meeting resulted in the departure of tbe innovator for pastures new. As late as 1878 there was a store in Hays City which never gave any hange smaller than the 25 cent piece, [f the customer had, say, "15 cents coming, he was at liberty to help himself to a glass of whisky from a barrel wbkh stood in the corner, bat he need not expect his dnea in money.—Kansas City Journal. ' Why tbe Uffht Went Oat. In front of the high altar in the cathedral at Salzburg there is a great lamp that is supposed to burn "forever and a day." One morning, years ago, worshipers were surprised to see it go out, and this was repeated morning after morning, always about the came time. It was thought the attendant bad neglected to give it sufficient oil, and though he declared his innocence, he was told that he would be discharged if the oversight were repeated. Unwilling to deal unjustly with the man, tbe dean of tbe cathedral hid himself one night to aee if be could solve tbe myatery. He bad net long to wait. About 10 o'clock a big rat was seen descending tbe rope by which the lamp was suspended. Having reached tbe oil, it fed freely, and then went away by the way it came. Needless is it to say that tbe attendant held his place. Farraent'n Opinion of Detrey. Rear Admiral Dewey as a young officer impressed one as a self contained man with powerful native force. 1 often think of the remark made by Admiral Goldsborough to Farragut on tbe occasion of the visit of the latter to our ship. The two admirals were standing within a few feet of my table, and Dewey had stepped back to give an order to the orderly. "Farragot," said Goldsborough, "Dewey will make bis mark in the world if he ever gets an opportunity." "Aye," auswered Parragut, with the pleasant smile so becoming to his homely face, "and he will make the opportunity." And Farragut was a true prophet — Harper's Round Table. Revenge. "Hurry up, there!" yelled the conductor to a man who had cbawd the car about a quarter of a mile. " We can't wait all day for you." "Is this a Woodward aveuue car? asked the tc.ll, thin man, who was punting like a tugboat after his loug run. "Yes," was the curt reply. "That's right," said tbe thin man, "always s^ak the truth, and your neighbors will respect you." And BO Euying be hurried around the corner, while the conductor came down from the car to look for a brick.—Deer oit Journal. The Tobacco Flower. "There is one flower," says a writer in a Loudo- paper, "which has apparently been overlooked by Americans in their search foraeuitable floral emblem which, I thiuk, is worthy of their at teutiou. I refer to that of the tobacco plant (nicotiaua) in its many, varieties. It is handsome. The plant is, I believe, indigenous to America, and its importance, as the solace of the human race, is indisputable." A Picture Which, It In Said, Hsus Yet to Be Discovered. There is one picture in America which, for convenience's anke, may be designated "Fata Morgana." It ia frequently alluded to and alwaya in a tone of reverent admiration. When one ia in Sew York one heara of it aa in Boston. When one ia in Boston ona heart of it as either in New York or Philadelphia, if the qnekt be pnrauftd in them citiea ihe picture is said to be located in Ballimore and BO forth* Wbat ia tbla mya- erioua work which would appear to be considered aa the chief treasure of art in America? It ia a wholly imaginary Raphael. I found the moat rooted conviction in all ao called "art circle*" that America ia tbe happy poaaesRor not only of a Raphael, but of a superbly fine example of that mailer, and, aa already Indicated, tbe picture ia not only alluded to with pride, but with an admiration that ia akin to awe. It ia unfortunate that the picture does not exiat, except in the fervent transatlantic imagination. In • word, here ia no Raphael in America. Dtrangely enough, there are very few orgeriee even, the one or two oanvaiea with any approach to tbe manner of the great Italian master being ao obvionaly imitative that no one with any adequate knowledge of his work oould possibly be deceived. It is, however, a pleasant fiction, and enables patriotic Americans in Europe to enlarge upon tbe superb masterpieces oversea.—Nineteenth Gen- iury. Woe to That Dreaamalcer! Yon may talk about naval heroes and rough riders all you like, but for an per- nurnan nerve and colossal daring commend me to a woman I saw in a dry goods shop here in town only last Monday morning. I had_ an excellent opportunity to observe her carefully, for she stood precisely where I desired to stand while she—well, thia ia what she did: She asked the salesman to show her a certain piece of red cashmere. Then she produced from ber pocket tbe cut paper pattern of a obild'a dress and calmy pinned the piecea to the cloth. The salesman stood politely by, think ing, if a salesman ever bad time to think, that sbe desired to aioertain the quantity required for the garment ehe intended- to make, but ihe didn't intend to make any garment at all. • After she bad pinned the whole pattern carefully in place, IL3 took it off and rolled it up. There waa a gleam of triumph in her eye. "Thank you," she said. "That's all I wanted. .1 know it didn't" take four yards. That dressmaker baa just kept that extra yard and a balf, tbat'a what she'E done." But my, my 1 Think of a dressmaker reckless enough to try to deceive a woman like that!—Washington Post. AM Cnibryo Genius. Lord Orewe, at an educational meeting at Liverpool recently, told an amus ing story of tbe little sou of a friend of his who refused to say his lesson to his governess. He admitted that he know it well; but, said he: "If I say my lea eon, what's the use? You will only make me learn something else." That child will probably be heard of again. Struck on th* Bonk*.

Saya be one day: 'Boys, I must have closer attention to books. The first one of you that sees another boy idle I want you to inform me and I will attend tothecaae.' 'Ah,' thougbt I to myself, 'tbere'a Joe Simmons, that I don't like. I'll watch him, and if I see bim look off bia book I'll tell on him.'
