J. M E L V I N , STEELE . JOHNSON. E D I T O R S A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING," APRIL 2, 189S. CHRISTOPHER WICKFIN. One of ColAnel Calliper's Old Time Fricmis In Storkvillo Center. "After he had lost one umbrella in that way,'" said Colonel Calliper, "my old friend Christopher Wick- fln, who formerly resided iu Stork- ville Center, Vt., made up his mind that he'd never lose another---that is, by having it turned inside out-- ami he rigged up an arrangemen to prevent it. This was a prettj elaborate sort of thing in its de tails, but in operation it was extremely simple. "In those days almost ovcry mai in Storkvillo Center--and for tha matter many men iu larger places too--wore boots. Mr. "Wickiin "s um Lrella was of stout" cotton, with whalebone ribs; that was when whalebone was cheap and befor the advent of the modern ninbrelh rib of channel steel. To tho tip o: every rib of his umbrella Mr. Wick fin attached a ring. He wore aromu his body a belt, to which were at tached as many cords as there were ribs to his umbrella. At the end o each cord was a snap hook wind he snapped into its ring at Ihe em of nil umbrella rib. From the bel on each side of the body a stout coix was carried down and rim througl the boot strap on that side and thei brought up and fastened to the belt, at a little distance from tbe othei end, so as to distribute the strain Thus equipped, Mr. Wickiin was, prepared to keep his umbrella fro a being blown inside out by tiny stom: that might come along. The ide; ? that the wind might pick him up and carry him and the umbrella am everything off together never occurred to him, but that was just what happened on the very first day he tried it. "It was a tremendous rainy clay, with -the wind blowing a gale anc with gusts now and then that it seemed would blow the roofs off the houses. But that was the sort oi day Mr. Wickfiu wanted, and he set out for the postoffice with till his rigging in place, feeling secure and easy and proud of tne victory that he had gained over the elements. As he walked along Main street, carrying his umbrella with the ropes coming down all around and converging at his waist, he presented a queer sight, but a moment later he presented a sight far more re markable. A great gust that came roaring down the street doubled under Mr. "Wickfin's umbrella and lifted him off tbe earth and carried him skyward. Storkville Center at one time and another had seen many- strange sights, l.ut never any quite so strange as that. "Mr. Wickfiu let go of his umbrella, but the-umbrella wouldn't let go of him. It carried him up on the wings of the wind, while, all Stork- ville Center looked on at him swaying helpless beneath it. But the wind was merciful to him. After carrying him up and down and round about for a minute or two it dropped him through the ton oi' a grcunhcusu. He smashed more glass nnd fiance than' tour um broil us would h«:ve cost, but he escaped without injury to Liinaclt, and for that he \v;::s thaulilul. "\Ycli, fci'ier ihtit expedience Air. Wichlin miidc ii[i hi.s mind that, wlnlo I'uo thiujf \viiy Jill right in principle, it uct'icd LC:I;U improve- nieut, :.:.«! !:e h.\cl ;i:i attachment to iLe l\Jr by i-ians of which he could, wlicii bo k i t t L e \\ind lifting him, c;j-.-t uir' all li.u ropes and let the uiulnelli: go., 'ihwjietiually this was all r i ^ h t ; iu practice, when the .test came, ;lic lie ropes jammed on both fcidffc 1/tforo lie could get them loose, and up u-j v.-cnt again. Then he hit upon n pun t h a t would no doubt h;ive \\orki-d pericctly: His own \veight was ICO pounds; he adjusted all thu roped ID a breaking strain ot ISO, tu t h a t under that pressure the u m L i u I J a would fret 1 itself from him auloiiiKlicully, but he never put this plan in operation. By t h e liino he had worked this out he h:ui rh.-cos ti«.d tlu.t there are many thir::;s that could be done that arc not v/orili the doing."--New York buu. A 1'ropcr Sort of 1'lay. A Chinese company produced a 3,000-year-old comic opera in Sydney. A loc-al paper observes this is like no other entertainment 011 earth, except, possibly, 1,000,000 iron tanks falling into a rocky gully fall of wildcats. There is no scenery--this is left to the imagination of the audience-- a.nd tha orchestra, in its shirt sleeves, occ;i;,ies the back of th« stage. \Vticu any player's back buir gets udrit'c oving to excessive exertion, one of t b t band rises, fixes it and-then goc.-s hack w i t h an air of "calm uncoEscio'isncha to his instru- incni. Tho orchestra consists partly of n Cbi?i:iii;au chopiii;;g wood, partly of mini her ('nlet-lial blowing with a horrible iuceiihily ;f dGvotiou on a bull's horn, p a r t l y of a curious Ktrfngcd instr;ui;ont which makes a cry like an i n f a n t -10 yards high, and KO on.--Exchange. Keligion's In Cliina. The three religions of China are Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Buddhists and Tnoists worship idols; Confucius revived siud fixed ancestor worship. The people make ancestor tables, on which they write the names of .tho spirits they wish to keep in the tables, and then, before them, they burn incense and a kind of paper money which is supposed to be the money of the spirit 'world. They also burn clothes and beautiful paper houses, oil some of which they spend a year's work. A former United States cousul at Shanghai, who had been a missionary many years, estimated that the value of tho offerings burned to ancestors amounted to $200,000,000 yearly,--Chicago Inter Ocean. The Dog XAW III Norway. We do not believe that tho coun try will ever be tree from rabie until far moro stringent measure have been adopted. Tho djinge . arises mainly from stray curs of mi certain ownership aiul from dog which, although they might bi claimed by somebody, aro not prop erly cared for by their proprietor: Wo should like to see the (log tax iu creased in amount, with duo iiulul I gcnco to person who require dog i for purposes or persons who requir I dogs for the issue of receipts in the | form of collar badges, the color o which might be varied every year and which would enable a policemai to see at a glance whether the tni for aiij' particular dog had beoi paid. If it had not, the dog shoulc be summarily destroyed. By the strict enforcement of sucl a system we should obtain a state o things analogous to thtit which ex i.sts in Norway, whore not only it. rabies unknown, but where the dog eeii in the street are handsome well bred and well cared for am mals, not sufficiently numerous to be the nuisances they often are ii London. The Norwegians adop very stringent precautions with re gard to dogs imported into their ter ritory, insisting upon ample certifi cation of health, and also, wo be lieve, upon a period of quarantine and, even in that most democratic country, we have never heard thai the control of canine hygiene is vest ed in local authorities, which would be liable, iu this matter, as in many others, to oscillate between unren soning indulgence and unreasoning panic.--London Hospital. A Korean Procession. The procession of the king was let by the general of the vanguard, su perbly dressed, supported by retainers on his led pony and followed by crowds of dignitaries, each with his train, soldiers, men carrying aloft frames of arrows reaching nearly across tho road, and huge flags crt silk brocade surmounted by plumes of pheaauts; servants in rows of 100 in the most delicate shades of blue, green or mauve silk gauze ovei white; halberdiers, grandees, each with a retinue of banner men; row of royal banuer men, carrying yellow and blue eilk flags emblazoned; cavalrymen in imitation gold helmets and mediaeval armor, and tigoi hunters wearing coarse felt black hats with conical crowns and dark blue coats, trailing long guns. With scarcely u pause followed the president of the foreign office, high above the crowd on a monocycle, a black wheel supporting on two uprights a black platform carrying a black chair decorated with a leopard's skin, the occupant of which was carried by eight men at a height of 8 feet from the ground. * * After this, borne high aloft by 40 bearers clothed in red, in a superb chair of red lacquer, richly tasseled and canopied, and with wings to keep off the sun, came the king, whose pale, languid face never changed its expression as he passed with all the dignity and splendor of his position through the silent crowd.--"Korea and Her Neighbors," by Mrs. Bishop. Dandet, Ilcoclat, David. My name seems to indicate that I descend from the Moorish settlers of Provence,for as you know Provencal people are largely of Moorish extraction. Indeed it is from that circumstance that I have drawn much of the humor of my books, such as 'Tartarin." It is funny, you know, :o hear of men with bushy black beards and flaring eyes--like bandits mcl wild warriors--who are, tho ono a peaceful baker, the other the east offensive of apothecaries. I myself have the Moorish type, and iiy name, "Daudet," according to :he version which I like best, is the Moorish for "David." Half my family is called "David." Others say that "Daudet" means "Deodat," which is a very common name in' Provence, and which, derived from 3eo datus, means given to God.-Outlook. Playful Weat India Senls. The water in the pool containing the West India seals at the aquarium runs off through a pipo ·! or 5 inches n diameter whose opening is in the loor oi the pool, at one end. When :he valve below has been opened. :he seals take delight in stopping the flow of water. The smaller seal particularly finds pleasure in this, plugging up the opening with its nose. It fairly humps itself in its jflforts to do this, and it holds on as oug as it can hold its breath. Then t comes up to breathe, a-iid then lown it goes again, once more to jlug up the pipe. Occasionally the bigger seal plugs up the intake opening at the other end of the pool n the same manner.--New York Sun. Ready Remedy.

Why don't you get up and read portions Traveler- I'lau For Hotbed. A hotbed built on the following plnu from The Farm Jonrual "will not require heat this spring if it is used for starting early vegetables, but it would require heat to grow them through the winter."
