THE EVENING GAZETTE: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY Evening Gazette. •r R BMW : DRI.ITItHBD RT OAltBIBR. SATPKKAY. FEB. 4. 1WW. WE publish a letter from Miss Emily Gait, forwarded to her mother 'by her father; the former being now'in Africa, and the latter in London. She enters into pleasing description of the strange land and people she Is now vlaltlng. WE HAVE beard from several Democratic sources that Judge Grinnell stands no chances of winning the Democratic nomination for Governor, for the reason that he would be scratched by the Anarchist and Socialistic vote of Chicago. In other words, that whatever he might gain outside of Cook county for his prosecution of the Anarchists, he would more than"'lose by the" opposition of these men. It IB reported that Stevenson is the man; that la to say, not only can he have the nomination if he wishes It, but also that his party thinks he would make the best run of any man of bis party. W nether Mr. Stevenson wishes it is another mat- tor; the big Republican majority in the State being such that it offers but little attraction to a man to enter the campaign as leader on the other ticket. It means for him a long campaign of many speeches, much money out of pocket and no show for a victory. —''You've said Bomnthlnff I think, about the pleasures of sleigh riding" eaitla young man to us this morning, as he took our only chair, and threw his feet upon our table, unrt blew a whifT of smoke from a cheap cigar in our face. "Well, it's all .1 matter of last*, as the old woman said as she Kissed her red cow on the nose. 1 read what you said, and I went to a livery stable and hired a dapper looking horse and a stylish looking buggy. And I told the livery man that I was a law- abiding citizen and rather than violate the ordinance I'd sooner have two sets of bells on than one. When I got in, I thought two was better than one and 1 drove around to the houso of'a very nice young lady who thinks a lot of nn% at least I do of her, and readily persuaded her to accompany n.e. I'm twenty live, if J'm a day, but that was the dadbingdest horse I ever pulled reins on. If I held tant the critter would bump right up ag'in' the cutter; if I generously gave him free reins, he'd go along lickety-go-brindle, at a gait that would have delighted KoWt Bonner. Why, I'm blessed if everybody we passed in the clear moonlight didn't turn back to look at us, and some of the remarks they made weren't complimentary,—I mean those of them we were nigh to running over and they were many: for I should have told you that the flabbergasted wretch had a way of working to the right when I pulled to the left, and vice versa. Of course after I got used to his ways, I Nor A day passes but some one is ready to ejaculate, "How can this one do that ?".or, "that one do this T Carlyle, it is said, could read a score of volumes, and take them all in, in a single day. Hugo's Shakspere la a miracle of memory, written while he was on the island of Guernsey, and when books were Inaccessible; the book abounds with quotations, from infinite numbers of authors. Napoleon the Great could dictate to tour different clerks at the same time and to each on a different subject. .These cases are exceptional and can only be done by geniuses. Une Jones, though, scarcely a genius, but a proofreader on the New York Sun, reads six hundred words a minute and that aloud, when the average man will not read seventy-five. Judges of. teas and silks perform feats that appear marvellous, as do jugglers and others. 'Inall these cases, it Is practice and having heart in one's wurk. To excel one must do one thing, be in earnest and let the object pursued be foremost in mind. If one would do much he must learn to think .and 'act quickly. It Is a pretty common delusion that iin order to do a thing well, one must go at it slowly and deliberately. This notion 10 wide spread is disproved in every day observation and in the experience of thousands. All men do not walk fast, but all men may do so. A11 men do not read rapidly, but they may do so by practice and read understandingly, too. At the beginning a child falters over a word of two letters, later on one of six or seven syllables does not stagger it. As one may grasp a long word at a single glance of the eye, so he may grasp "a dozen, or twenty, or thirty, or more. As he can take it iht* his brain slowly, so he can do it rapidly by practice. As It is true and admitted that one can learn to talk rapidly, and . to walk rapidly, so he can learn to think rapidly and recall rapidly, and .to work rapidly. It]is absubr to reason otherwise. It Is a matter of education. managed that thing all right, but not CONDENSED NEWS. Col Mapleson, tha operatic manager, hi* bMQ declared a bankrupt In London.

BETXOVB, Ind., Feb. 4.— Sbermau Hufford, •god '21 years, wbo lived witb bis widowed moUwr a few miles south of this city, was to feftv* man-led a young lady of Austin Thursday night. TLnivlay evening, while aluno IB his bed-room, ho shot himself fatally In tbe bead, dying without giving a reason tor hto rub act. _____.- until I had scratched the paint off two or three cutters and thrown one young- un out upon the snow, and had been called '1'liot,' 'old fool' and several other names anything but pleasant to hear when you are with your best girl. Well, I was beginning to settle down to enjoyment, having learned to turn out the wrong way and hold about so-so on the lines, when, would you believe it, that horse got the most unaccountable freak on him you ever heard of; ha'd settle right down to a stow poke of a creeping walk and not all the hard name's I'd call him, or poundings, with the whip would get him out of it. Then without any apparent cause, he'd.start up and dash along as if he'd break our necks; and suddenly come to n creep as to throw us on the dash.. I forgot to tell you that when he would dash out he took fanc^ touches with his bind heels that would pick up great wads, of snow and throw them back upon our faces, heads and bodies until we were nearly covered with snow, to say nothing of the pain of getting hit on the cheek. Well, I finally got him turned around towards home, thinking we'd got our money's worth, or at least being somewhat aweary of the business and was full of hope that we'd get back without any further unpleasantness; but, let me tell you, that horse was a trick horse in a circus and belonged to a clown,—I Just know he did; for he now cut up more didoes than a set of boys just out of school. Xow he,d shy to the right and now to the left; now he'd rear and then playfully cast his heels against the dash; and just as sure as we met a sleigh he'd do .his mortal best to run Into it,—indeed he would. . Now he'd pace, now trot, now gallop, and now come to a sadden halt, and ever and anon he'd laugh right out loud. Yes, I know, folks call It a whinny, but that horse didn't whinny, sir, he laughed to see my i discomfiture; for the exercise of whipping, scolding and swearing beneath my breath, just set me to perspiring like a harvester when the thermometer is above an hundred. The poetry of sleigh-riding by moonlight with ypur girl is all bosh! I had expected to talk love to my girl'and maybe go as far as engagement; but a fellow couldn't court a girl under circumstances like that If his girl was worth a million and he knew that it was his last chance and that a dangerous rival would be at her home waiting to see her that very even- Ing. Presently I dropped the whip, and, sir, had to leave It, for every time I started to get out that rampagious •horse would give a mighty and desperate lunge and plunge. Then my hat fell off and I had to leave that, too. My girl would have lost hers, but she held on to It with both hands. To cap the climax, when we were about two miles from town, that infamous wretch of a* horse positively turned sharp off Into a snow bank, pitching us completely out, and then after, turning its head around to get a good look at us, again burst out with a laugh and started ofT on a regular tifter.- We had to foot It all the way in. Would you believe it? after I had seen my girl safely home, and had gone to the stable to give my criticism on tbe actions of that horse, the wretch recognized my voice, and again broke out witb a triumphant laugh; for of course he had got back to the stable all right, sound as a dollar. Let me tell you; I've bad an inkling that a trick was playid upon me; that a fellow who likes my girl as well as I do, knew I was going and put a job up on the stable boy to give me that vil- lianous horse. If I find It to be true, I'll mark his face for him, that I will. Poetry In sleigh riding. Where does it come in V" The fellow had much more to eay, but the printer's clamors for copy drowned his voice, and he went off, still sucking at his cigar stump, and wearing a look of Indignation in his large blue eyes.' boil, it marie music whrrpvrr ho went, like t!ie belis of thp old woman upon the cocft horse. While; a trille hoarse possessed volume enough, that bell did. to rail folk* to church. N'ot only did men notice it. bat passing horses, also, Jthe latter, pricking 'thi»ir ears and quickening their gait, as it approached. One chap standing near us. before it hove inisight, asked, "Who in thunder is that driving such a drove of belled cattle this morning, and why does he bell them all?" Its peculiar tones, we should have previously paid, gave out fifteeii or twenty different sounds. Another one standing by as the cutter containing this wonderful bell passed, said, "That bell would do for three chivirari parties a mile apart." Vet another looked around t'or Mike, declaring that the bell would cause an hundred runaways before night. —An accident happened in Sterling a day or two ago, which, had it happened in tbe White House at Washing, would have been telegraphed all over the_countryjks a wonderful _ex^ hibition of bravery on the part of the mistress thereof, etc., ad nauseam, a la napkin. A young lady went to bet room in the early evening and scratched a match to light her lamp. A spark from the parlor match flew onto a canton flannel curtain that closed the entrance to the clothes closet, and the nap flashed up like a train of powder, running all over the curtain and up Inside of the closet full of garments. But almost as quick as the Hash, the lady's bands went over the fiery sur- el Population. face and brushed it /out, without a scream or outcry, and only told her mother of It when her toilet was made and she came down stairs. When asked if she was scared, she said: "No; if the curtain had insisted on burning I would have pulled it down and thrown a blanket ovei it." The mother showed equal coolness some years ago, when her gasoline stove overflowed and blazed up most alarmingly She threw a cloth i.ver her hand, Instantly thrust it Into the - flames and turned off the valve, without alarming other folks in the house.Tliese instances show the great value of that presence of mind in the moment of danger, which should be cultivated by all. The right thing at the right moment is of infinite value. In either of these cases a faint, .a wrong move, or a screaming run for help might haver resulted in great loss or even death, —Born to Mr. and Mrs?

ATTENTION I Invite your attention to the l&st tliat I nave —This morning there was a cutter on the street the driver of which was resolutely determined to fully comply with the spirit and* Intent of the bell ordinance. Ills cutter wasn't much for style, nor was his horse one equal In value to Maud S., or Jay Eye See but not a vehicle that has been in town since the foundations of the .city were laid attracted more notice. Why, not even * circua procewlon with tbe antics of the clown afforded more arcute- taent.

A very alngulnr form of neuralgia Is that affecting the nerves of Amputated limbs.' It not rarely happens that after an amputated Btump lias healed the nerves ot the stump, beiiiR compressed In the scar, become exceedingly painful. Curiously the pain Is not felt lu the stump, but In the extremity of the limb which has been amputated. In one coming under the notice of the writer a man whose arm had been amputated above the elbow referred the exquisite pain ho felt to the little linger of the amputated hand years" after the operation. An old one legged soldier, applying for au Increase ot pension, suld: "He had more pain in the foot wljlch ain't, than In the foot which are," This was a terse may of saying that he continued to have a pain In the foot which he hod lost on the battle field many years, before. The explanation of this consists In the fact that the terminal filaments of a nerve are Its most sensitive parts; they are the "feelers," the points from which the sensations start on their course to the brain, where they give notice that something li wrong with the outlj'ing districts. When the nerve Is injured in its continuity the sensation is often referred to the terminal tmrta. Every one who has struck his' "crazy bone"—the point above the elbow where the ulnar nerve Is very superficial and ea»lly.injured—must have noticed how much the sensation waa affected u) the little linger, the pain being often greater there than at the point where the blow was strnck.—George H.
