"The funniest experience I ever had I with a lunatic," said a newspaper man, I according to the Buffalo Express, "was I Jack Jones' experience, rather than [mine. I was working for tho Hearse [then and Jack was.on the Microphone. I We both had been sent out to the state • asylum on Forest avenue on some com- Imonplaco assignment, and, after wo I had'got what wo wanted, Dr. Granger I offered to show us through the build- lings. In ono of the wards, the doctor I having left us for a moment, we were I approached by an eminently rcspcct- lablo, middle-aged gentleman of evi- Ident intelligence,who, after quietly in- Ifonmnffus that ho was unjustly con- I fined, proceed to say: "Of course, gcn- » i?, I know that every madman •C3 himself to be sane, but listen story before you judge." "The man's manner made an impres- lulon on both of us, but I had run across Ivory cunning lunatics before. Jack, •however, became interested at once.

If a sharp lookout be kept by visitors driving or walking through the Back Bay fens numbers of eats will be noticed, more especially at the leafless season. Some will be seen sunning themselves in protected corners, others scouring the fenny marshes for food, and still others watch in'g in the honeysuckle and among the shrubbery for tho root and. bark-eating field mouse. The great majority, says the Boston Evening Transcript, arc outcasts from happy homes and comfort and plenty. Now they aro homeless, hungry wanderers over a bleak park, with only the comfortless bushes or holes between rocks for shelter and an occasional sparrow or mole or tho little they can otherwise pick up for food.

Quito a largo number took up their residence in tho fens last spring. A fc\v were caught and good homes provided for them. But unless a cat is caught tho first few days it never can be, for it becomes as wild as a hare after leading a wild life awhile. Others may . possibly later have found their way back to old homos, still others may have found homes, not a few have died and quite .a good number have lived a most miserable lifo this past cold winter. And it is also quite possible that a few take up this life of their own volition and forget that they ever had a home. The king of tho park is a six-year-old black and white cat that came as a kitten in May, 1SOO. For quite awhilo he ate crickets and lived without help of human kind. Presently some one rolled a barrel in tho bushes, placed Borne grass in it, and regularly put food near by. Soon tho kitten acknowledged the kindness and allowed its feeder liberties. In time the kitten grew into a large, heavy-coated cat, able and will- Ing to fight cat and dog kind. . One day a lady named him "Booser," from tho peculiarly boosy look when not watching game. Booser is now well known of many, and has been fed, photographed, sketched and petted. Tho nir of proprietorship never leaves Booser for an instant, particularly in his own section about thc Boylston arch, and woe be unto tho cat or clog caught in his dominion. Barring a slight attack of rheumatism now and then, Booser is in good trim. Of course, this is owing to thc best care. Thc Maltese found with the clucks have a small history, too. Three years ago last winter a little Maltese cat took tip her abode in tho fowl house and soon there were three. At first there seemed imich discontent on the part of the dnuk's, bu't, tho weather being so unfavorable, they cither relented or thc Maltese was afraid of the outside cold and persisted. At any rate they remained, and from that day to this every cold or wet night you will find all three Maltese cuddled up in the midst of a group of thirty or more mallards, sh.elldra.kcs and blacks. Although these latter arc not as well off as their more fortunate brethren of warm quarters and regular food, yet they are far in advance of the (alas!) too 'many in thc -fens who get neither food, shelter nor sympathy from man or fellow creature.

PAUL JONES' CAEEER. He Was the First to Hoist American Flag. the DA Had • Peculiarly lMCln»tlne with SaUnrm—A Tlreleu tetter-Writer »oa «n Indlter of Sentimental Verse* to Women. On December 22, 1775, was made the beginning of the American navy; and from this point the true history of PanI Jones begins. He was then twenty- eight years old, of the middle height, his.figure slight, but graceful, and of "a dashing and officer-like appearance." His complexion, writes Miss Molly Elliot Seawell in Century, was dark and weather beaten; his black eyes very expressive, but melancholy. His manners were easy and dignified with, the great, and he was without doubt fascinating to women. He often fancied himself in love, and, like Washington, 'sometimes even wrote bad verses to ladies; but it is unlikely that any woman ever had the real mastery of his heart. He was not deterred by the greatness of "the fair,," as he called them when they pleased him, and made love to very- great ladies quite as boldly as when with the wretched Bon Homme Richard he. laid aboard the stout Serapis. He had a peculiarly persuasive way with sailors as with women; and if he wished to enlist a sailor would walk up rind down the pier with him by the -hour, and he never failed to get his man. Tic was a tireless letter-writer, and when Paul Jones wrote as Paul Jones spoke nothing could exceed the force and simplicity of his style. But he was subject to attacks of the literary devil, and his productions then .were intolerably fine. He wrote and spoke French respectably, and his handwriting, grammar and spelling are all much above the average of his day. Ilis first duty was as first lieutenant of the Alfred, Commodore Hopkins'flag 1 ship. On this vessel he hoisted for the first time the original flag of the revolution—the rattlesnake flag. In a letter to Roburt Morris in 1TS3, Paul Jones says: "It was my fortune, as the -senior of the first lieutenants, to hoist, mjTself, . the flag of America (I chose to do it with my own hands) the first time it •was displayed. Though this was but a light circumstance, yet, I feol for its honor more than I think I should have felt had it not so happened." The services'he was engaged in under Commodore Hopkins were far from brilliant. The commodore had a strong disinclination to go "in harm's way"— to use a favorite expression of Paul Jon os—and within a year was dismissed the navy. Paul Jones' first command was a little "sloop of war, the Providence; and from a memorandum among his papers, in the handwriting of the secretary of the congress, we learn that his uniform was: "Blue cloth with red lappels, slash' cuffs, stand-up collar, flat yellow buttons, blue' britches, red waistcoat .with narrow lace," The uniform for the junior officers was also prescribed, and all were commanded lo wear "blue britches." The marine officers, however, were to wear "britches edged with green, black gaiter and garters." Paul Jones' conduct during the cruise he made in the Providence, and afterward in command of a small squadron in 17TO, won him great credit, especially with Washington. His employment was the conveying of men and stores from Rhode Island to Washington at New York. Long Island sound swarmed with tho cruisers of Lord Howe's fleet, and Paul Jones' address in eluding them, especially the Cerberus frigate, which tracked him for weeks like a bloodhound, marked him as a man of great enterprise. FTis next cruise with a little squadron maintained his reputation, and from that on the requests of oiliccrs who wished to serve under him were frequent. Paul Jones' replies to these arc quaint reading. He always protests a disinclination to "entice" officers away from other commanders, but never fails to note the good points of his own ship, and to give a forecast of his dari/fg schemes very captivating to an ambitious young officer. There was great confusion in the tables of rank first adopted in the navy, and thence proceeded a grievance that Paul Jones never ceased to protest against bitterly, until in 1761, many years afterward, ho became, by the unanimous election of congress, the ranking officer of the American navy.

'When a new one was given him, he found, to his natural indignation, that thirteen of his juniors were ahead of him on the list of cap' tains. Dow infuriatinfr this was to a man as greedy of distinction as Paul Jones, may be imagined. He always •spelled rank with a capital, and wrote of it as "Rank, which opens the door tc Glory." He swore be would never serve under any of the men thus unjustly given precedence of him. Contrress. while negligent in doing him justice, i was wise enough, nevertheless, to give him always a separate command. It . was determined to send him to Europe j in the ,Bangor sloop of war, and in , Europe to give him the finest command then at the disposal of the congress.,' This was a splendid-frigate—the Indien —building at Amsterdam. HOWSHOPPING WOMEN LUNCH. Everyth In* Got*. That T»it«i Good and Dyipepil* If tbe General Penalty. "I suppose no man ought to complain of what puts money in his pocket," remarked a well-known doctor the other day, says a New York Herald writer; "and therefore it is not a matter that I am going to move heaven and earth to reform, but at the same time I don't mind giving anybody the benefit of my opinion that the lunch parlors that have sprung up in the shopping districts have' been productive of much dyspepsia among women, especially that class whom I might call 'chronic shoppers.' But that such is thc case is of course purely the fault of the women themselves, who persist in gorging themselves on pics and cakes and raer- j ingucs and creams and puffs, and all j manner of concoctions that arc prepared with an 1 eyo single to their capacity for tickling the palate, without regard to their digestive qualities. • "It is a fact which lias brought many dollars to my pocket that when it comes to ordering what they call a. light lunch, most women will order the very things that they ought most to avoid. Instead of the plain and wholesome they will choose the variegated and bilious. They aro much .worse sinners than men in this respect. Where a man would .take a ham or a tongue sandwich, a woman, nine times out of ten, would select, by way of a starter, a cream puff or tart, or some indigestible com- • pound with a 'highfaiutin' name, j Though at home they feed with some ; regard to the eternal fitness of tilings, when on these 'luncheon orgies,' as I call them, women seem to abandon themselves to a reckless desire to gratify their tastes, utterly reRardless of thc pains and penalties, which it entails on their stomachs. Everything goes- sweet and sour viands, hot and cold fluids, light and solid compounds, with- 'out any regard to natural order and precedence. "There is something coming, too, that ia going to make matters, worse. That is thc 'rapid transit lunch' for women in the shopping district, as we have it in the downtown business districts for men. ''Then, when women have simply to stretch out their hands to get whatever tempts their appetites most, and in an atmosphere where fast feeding is contagious, many will soon fall to wondering what makes them so cross and irritable, and their husbands will be racking their brains for excuses for staying out late more frequently. But as a doctor with a keen appreciation of thc good things that money will buy, the prospect is one that I can at least regard with philosophical resignation." for Infants and Children.

Curious IIo A GOOD DOG' STORY. Turk IVns Bound to Recover Hli JMsster'i Property. A correspondent of the London Spectator relates a good story of a dog, a smooth-haired retriever, named Turk. JJgjjjjjjporrespondent, then a boy, was walking with his father, with Turk at their heels, when they were joined by the bailiff of the farm.' In the course of the walk Turk discovered tho presence of a rabbit concealed in a dry-stone dike, and after tho men had removed some of the stones it was killed and handed to the bailiff, who put it in his coat pocket. Soon afterward we separated, the bailiff going 1 to his house in one direction, and we to ours in another. , By and by we noticed that Turk was not with us* and spoke of the fact with surprise, as he was always a good follower. "\Vhen we had been at home for perhaps an hour I saw a strange, puzzling- object up the road, It raised a cloud of dust as it moved along-, so that it was some time before I could make it out. It was Turk dragging a man's shooting 1 jacket, which proved to be tho bailiff's with the rabbit still in the pocket. We learned afterward that the dog quietly followed the bailiff home, and lay down near him. Presently thc man took off his coat and threw it on a cHalr. Instantly Turk pounced upon it, and dashed out of. the door with it in his mouth. He was pursued, but in vain, and dragged the coat home, a distance of a milt- and three-quarters. The rabbit belonged to his master, he thoug-ht, and he set himself to recover the stolen goods. Aluminum In Trail'Paper. The uses of aluminum do not seem to have been exhausted yet. It is now comiti^ into use in the decoration of •wall papers, many beautiful conceptions being shown, in which this metal is a conspicuous figure. 'In floral- striped effects the motives are printed on beautifully embossed grounds, which gives a bun>ishcd effect to the aluminum that is very desirable. An effective arrangement of daisies and fern leaves around the metal line is said to make a choice decoration for parlor or bedroom. The use of aluminum with colors, witlj- or without the addition of gold, is spoken of as another special feature of this new class of papers. t ... ow a MBU Feels When wn Ho Xeoil) » Doctor. "It is curious,'' said a ma,n the other day, reports thu Washington Post, "thc various sensations a man experiences when lie goes to sec a doctor-or a dentist. There. is a long, preliminary siege of mental agony, alternately exaggerating and belittling your ailment, until finally in a moment of desperation you decide to go and see what is the matter anyway. P.erhaps you have a cold, which has settled on the lungs and developed a troublesome cough that keeps you awake nights. The cough itself is not so bad as the terrible possibilities it suggests. Visions of swift demise from pneumonia or slow wasting away with consumption rise up before your eyes, and every wheeze and cough confirms these terrible premonitions. If you could, you would go then in a hurry, but in the morning you feel better. "The cough is still there, but the terrors of the imagination have fled before the daylight, you-put it oft anotherday. But finally you decide to go, and, with firmness born of despair, march up to the medical man's' door to learn your fate, In the case of toothache everyone knows how a tooth will hop and jump and smart all day until you get to the dentist's, and then calm down so quiet and painless that you can't tell which one was aching. It is thc same way with a cough or other ailment. As you go up to the door you secretly hope that the doctor is not at home. You pull thc doorbell gently, and half wish that you had not co:nc. Then the funniest part of it all is how mad you will get when you find the doctor, is not at home, and feel as if you had been cheated • out of one of your dearest hopes." _ AN OCULIST'S RUSE. Ctunese courtesy. In contradistinction to American rudeness, Mr. Dennis, of Boston, a man ol wide travel, says the Detroit Free Press tells of the beautiful courtesy of the Chinese. "There is in all the -world nothing more perfectly refined and civilized than the Chinese gentleman,-' he says, "and in your intercourse with him he seems constantly on the alert to show you by xmmberles; ( little graceful acts how much he j appreciates your friendship. A few weeks ago." he remarked while talking j on this subject. "I had occasion to visit ! China, and while at Peking v.-ent to call : on a Chinese gentleman whom I had ' formerly known in Boston. When my • card was .taken 'in to him, instead ol . -rushing out with protestations of delight at seeing, me. as we would dc under the sarce circumstances with Ills Clever Motlo ot Exponlnc » Fraudulent Ctulm. Here is an interosting account of a very clever bit of detective work by ani oculist, says Leonard's Illustrated Med- • icnl Journal. It appears that in a larg-fl factory, in which were employed several hundred persons, one of the workmen, in wielding 1 his hammer, care- lesslv allowed it to slip from his hand... It Hew half way across thc room and- struck a fellow workingman in the left, eye. The man averred that his sight: was blindod by the'blow, although a- careful examination failed to reveal, any injury, there-'-bcing not a scratch visible. He brought a suit in the- courts for compensation for thc loss of" half of his eyesight, and refused all offers of compromise. Under the law, according to tho Shef-' field (England) Telegraph, the owner of the factory was responsible for an. injury resulting* from an accident of this kind, and although he believed that the man was shamming and that, the whole case was an attempt at swindling, he had about made up his- mind that he would be compelled to- pay the claim. The day of thc trial arrived, and in open "court an eminent, oculist, retained for the defense, examined thc alleged in jured member and gave it as his opinion that it was as good as the right eye. Upon the plain- tifTs loud protest of bis inability to see with thc left eyo, the oculist proved hixn a perjurer and satisfied, thc court and jury of the falsity of his claim. And how do you suppose ho did it? Why, simply by knowing that the colors green and red combined make black. . lie procured a black card on which a few words were written with green ink. Then the plaintiff was ordered to put. on a pair of spectacles with two different glasses, thc one for thc right, eyo- being red and the one for the left eyo- consisting of ordinary glass. Then thfr • card v.-as handed him and he was ordered to read the writing on it. This he did without hesitation, and tho cheat was at once exposed. Thc sound right eye. lilted with red glass, was unable to dLstingiii.sh the green writing- on the black surface of the caj-d, while- the left eye. which he protended wa» sightless, was the one with v.-hich tha reading had to bo done. of doilan BEFORE trying yuriou* retncoie fng me perftMJtljr b*3d. 1 HOT SPRIGS hid takentwelve bolfles.1 a huge Boston applo,.which he had presented to me on a silver tray as a sign of welcome before lie greeted me him- ! self.
