CHINESE GOD TO LEASE. How an Enterprising Celestial Stakes & Fat Llrlog Out of an Idol. A new Chinese god has recently made, Ms appearance in Mott street, New, York, and bids fair, if he lives as long«Joss, to knock that powerful deity "into a cocked hat" in the estimation of celestials. His name is Lone ^Yung Sha, and he is by far the most accommodating god who has yet txirned up in this or any other country. One of his most remarkable characteristics is that he allows himself to be hired out and set up at auction and graciously permits the highest bidder to carry him off and set him up wherever he pleases. And wherever his new quarters may be, whether in a little nook in the back of u laundry or on a shelf in an opium joint, he goes on working- miracles and dispensing luck in exact proportion to the gifts of his votaries and allows his keeper to walk off with the profits. His increasing power and importance may be gauged by the fact that on the last occasion when he was axictioned off a few days ago he fetched a price of S4,- 000. Three or four years ago he was unknown, and quietly made his entry into San Francisco in a basket hung on the arm of Yung Lung, his fortunate discoverer and owner. After making Ynng Lung rich he allowed Mm to lease him ont a year ago for §2,000. Now his price has doubled, and at his present rate of increase he bids fair to become a millionaire before the present generation of Chinamen dies out. His fortunate possessor is Ong Hong-Tong, who expects to clear a net profit of 55,000 on him during- the coming year.

TTlie Sltatne Made by Louise iawHon for the Letter Carriers. The letter carriers of New York some •time ago inaugurated a movement to erect a monument in Central park to Samuel S. Cox, the late member of congress, who was a~ great friend of the ipost office employes arid had rendered •them jjreat service. They appealed to flheir larethren throughout the country jand met with grea.t success. From every state in the union subscriptions -poured in on the committee, which was «oon in a position to set about the work practically. It was decided that the •monument should be a simple statue standing on a plain granite pedestal, and the .contract for making the model : was given to Miss Louise Lawson, the ^ sculptor. She has completed her model on clay, and a few days ago gave a private view to the reporters. The statue JwlU be of bronze, will be nine feet high and will stand on a pedestal twelve feet high. The model represents Mr. Cox as in the act of speaking- in congress, his v eye on the speaker,_his right hand raised and his index finger extended, while his left arm hangs by his side. Those who have seen the model differ in their opinion of its artistic merits. Some claim that it is a poor piece of work which can never be accepted by the art experts -who are to pass upon it, while others insist that' it is all right. The letter carriers have accepted it and agreed to pay Miss Lawson 810,000 for " ler work. Her original design was a anonvunent that would portray the his-. STATUE OP THE LATE 9. S.

She is a composer, and many of her productions are now favorites in the music halls. She waa not trained for a public musical career, but got such teaching only as would make her shine in the family circle. It was a case of natural talent asserting Itself and forcing itself to the front. She was born and brought up in Kent, and the proximity of the .family residence to the garrison town of Dover and the camps of Aldershot-and Shorne- MISS HOPE TEMPLE. cliff brought her much into the society of army officers. While a mere girl she composed a waltz for the band of the Twenty-fourth regiment of foot—^afterward annihilated by the Zulus at Isan- dula—and she was adopted as a daughter of the regiment. She developed great proficiency at the pi^-no and her voice was admirable, but her forte was composition from the first. Among her best known songs are "My Lady's Bower," "In Sweet September," and "Thoughts and Tears." She has recently made up her mind to try her hand at an operetta. The story is laid in Spain and is treated by Gilbert Burgess, a promising young librettist. Hits the nail on the head —one of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They do the right thing in the right way. They cleanse and regulate the liver, stomach and bowels —thoroughly and effectively, but mildly and gently. They_ persuade, rather than force. One tiny, sugarcoated Pellet's a gentle laxative; three to four act as a cathartic. They're the smallest, but the best. There's less to take, but there's more good in it, when it's taken. They're the original Little Liver Pill, and they've never been equaled. Sick Headache, Bilious Headache, Constipation, Indigestion, Bilious Attacks, and all derangements of the liver, stomach and bowels, are prevented, relieved, and cured. They're the cheapest pill you can buy, because they're guaranteed to give satisfaction, or your money is returned. HANDLING BALED HAY. A Simplo Iron Hook Which Kctlncos tlie Labor to a Minimum. It is difficult to lift an ordinary bale on to, a wagon more on account of it's tmwieldiness than its weight. The wrought iron hook presented in this illustration will enable a man to handle baled hay with much greater ease. The bale to be lifted should be stood on end, then lean the upper'en J against you. and reach over and place the hook near the other end and bring it up perpendicularly, and then the whole bale may be easily handled. The hook should be made of three-eighths-inch round iron, with a loop for a good grasp by the hand and may be drawn out smaller at the other end.—Orange Judd Farmer. The extent or degree of'the oscillation of tall .chimneys may 15e exactly taken by a close observation of tlie shadows they cast upo'n the ground. An. instance; to the point is thai;, of a chimney one hundred and fifteen feet high and four feet in diameter externally at the top, near Marseilles, Prance,' the oscillations of which were observed by the shadow during a high wind to-obtain a maximum ci over twenty inches. ODDLY SHAPED ROCKS. Popularly Known as the Hootloos of Ycl- iowHtiono Park. One of the wonders of the National park of the Yellowstone are the barren and oddly shaped rocky columns known as the "Koodoos," because of their resemblance at a distance to fantastically dressed human beings. Hoodoo mountain lies about fifty miles to the southeast of the grand canyon of the Yellowstone, and forms a distinct attraction by itself. High up on the side of the mountain, and obscured from view at a short distance, lies a lo-v, flat tract, or basin, containing large numbers of rocky pillars, shafts and 'spires, worn into the most grotesque shapes by the action of the elements. The forms of animals, human beings, churches and a multi- ' KOODOOS OF THE NATIONAL PABK. tude of animate and inanimate objects can be traced in the rocks, the variety being limited only by the imagination of tlie beholder. The storms of ages Rave worn deep .channels among the rocks, through which the visitor wanders as in a bewildering labyrinth. It is a weird spot, and one never tires of. threading its rocky mazes and gazing upon time's sculpturing. Mmi_tlie J.I 1C Boat!

ILl* Is it your fault or the boy's that Young Hopeful doesn't understand the meaning of the word he has encountered, or knows nothing about the man of whose actions he has been reading? The boy comes to you while you are deep in the market reports, and you are annoyed at the interruption. Does not part of your annoyance arise from the fact that you don't know yourself? The whole trouble, both for the boy and yourself, would be avoided if you had an Encyclopaedia in the house—a good one, that is. Like many other people you have not such a work, and you say, with considerable justice, that you have been unable to afford the purchase of one. That was true in the past, but is no longer the case.
