There is a great difference in hogs. The form, contout and face of the rounded, sleek sided, short legged Berkshire and other hogs of high degree do not much resemble tho angular, razor backed hog common throughout the south. The countenance of the Well bred, well cared for species is chubby and contented looking, the ears small, the suout inclined to turn up rather than down. His less fortunate cousin has a Jong* narrow face, immense, flopping ears that hang disconsolately over his eyes, and an elongated, pointed snout "that seems providentially formed to aid his earthy explorations. "Boot, hog, or die," is a common saying in the country of which this hog is a native, and tho swine seem to realize the situation. They have long legs aud always ran with their snouts close to the ground, convenient for unearthing anything eatable Which may come in their way They diligently root up tho promising morsel of food aud gulp it down, without stopping to enjoy it, aud run ou apparently faster than ever, grunting ns they go, in search of something more—some favorite acorn or juicy bit of grnsa or berry root, upon whoh they largely depend for subsistence. Naturally tho vast amount of imperative exorcise they take ranging through the woods effectually prevents their taking on much superfluous flesh, and the hair on their narrow backs is as rough and coarse as that of the well bred hog is smooth and glossy. The majority ot them are of a dingy white color, perhaps spotted with black, and when a white coated one, scantily covered with hair, has pale eyes, bound around with pink, and very light eyelashes, protrud- jing beneath his drooping ears, he is as ugly a living object as can bo imagined. The little pigs are moderately pretty when young, but not in the least like the plump, little, chubby faced baby Berkshire, and long before they have arrived at the ago when they are called "shotes" they have become ungainly and common looking. The negroes have great faith in the ability of tho hog to survive any amount of neglect and still live to provide sausages and pork stow for the winter season. At certain seasons, when the "shotes" can do no damage to the maturing crops, it is necessary to confine them until tho fields are bare ouco more and will admit of their ranging at will. In the course of a walk once, a small negro boy and girl were found seated on top of the fence which surrounded^a pen, flinging corn to two hogs-within the inclosure. The rude feeding trough •was as dry as if no liquid had ever dampened it, and this on a hot summer afternoon. Inquiry as to when the prisoners had last had water given them elicited no response from the shy little "shote minders." After some inquiry aud explanation that the pigs would 1 like water the' boy consented to go to the'house, soim0"distanceoffi'for,<i-buck-, et, after "bringing which the children went to the spring, in a little hollow in- the woods behind the pen, and procured water for the thirsty creatures. It is needless to say that they drank it with avidity. This pen was in an open field, with not a single bit of shade near. _ It bad belonged to an humble establishment, the house and barn of which had been moved to some other tract of land, and the owner of the hogs had utilized , the pen just where it was, the distance from his dwelling, which was plentifully supplied with well water, rendering it most inconvenient to attend to the wants of the animals. The peii could easily have been moved, as tho fence around it was made of movable rails placed zigzag fashion on purpose that it might bo changed from place to place,, but evidently the comfort of the "shotes" was not regarded as of much importance. Later, a small, slim figure, in a scant, homespun dress, faded and torn, suddenly emerged from a narrow path which opened upon tne road, and a childish voice said timidly, "Do you want some headache blossom, ma'amr a little black hand holding out a bunch of delicate pink, flowers, with perfume more powerful than sweet. The acceptance qf this offering seemed to thaw out her reserve, and the little girl volunteered the information that she and Yankee, her brother, "aimed to dash water to de hog ebery ebenin In the days of the old regime the crops were all fenced in, and the hogs, and cattle as well, were allowed to roam at will through the fastnesses of the swamps and timbered tracts. Oftentimes the animals were not seen for months. When the time drew near for hog killing, parties were made up to "drive" the swamp and capture the half wild creatures, as it was desired to fatten them in pens before killing. W was not infrequently the case that the swine became quite ferooioug, having Jt ijj Cffi»*6tis liWiT S know* tec fcteda n "It Id curious," said a roan yssterday, "tho vftricna aensr.tionss a man experiences When ho goes to ECO a doctor or a dentist. There is a long, preliminary eiegoof muntnl rmonv, alternately exaggerating and belittling your ailment, until filially in a moment of desperation you decide to go and see what is the matter anyway. Perhaps you have a cold, Which has settled on the Itinga and developed a troublesome cough that keeps you r.walco nights. The cough itself is not so bad as tho 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 tho morning you feel better. "The cough is still there, but tho terrors of tho imagination have fled before the daylight, so you put it off auotho:: day. 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 case of toothache every ouo knows how a tooth will hop and jump and smart all day until you get to tho dentist's and then calm down so quie.- and painless that you can't toll which ono was aching. It is the same way With a cough or other ailment. As you go up to the door you secretly hope that the doctor in not at home. You pull the doorbell gently and half Wish you bad not come. Then tho funniest part of it all is how mad you will get when you find tho doctor is not 'at homo and feel as if you had been cheated out of ouo of your dearest hopes."—Washington Post. O. r. M. r.

A TTORNEY A T LA W, Money to PIHH. Altsuna. Strange Story of the Scuttling of a Great Steamship hy I'lrates. What a strange story is that communicated by the Duke of Newcastle to The Globe concerning the loss of the President! He says that a trustworthy informant in tho United States assured him that a sailor, dying in an American port, had confessed to having formed one of the crow of a pirato vessel which captured the great steamship. ' Every soul on board was made to walk tho plank, and the ship was scuttled. The story socuis incredible, yet it may be true, anil the possibility of it gives one quite a shock. It is 50 years ago and rnoro since tho President disappeared from human sight, without, I believe, leaving a trace. Tho loss of no other vessel—for it was tho first of tho great passenger ships to go—has caused so great an excitement. How those at home clung to hope, some of them for years—for the notion of the crew being wrecked on some out of the way island •was eagerly adopted—and how many a heart was broken by tho intolerable suspense! At last it was generally concluded that tho ship had collided with an iceberg and foundered. And now comes this terrible story, which, it is fortunate, was not conceived of when it would have had tho power to make those at home more miserable. It is not to be forgotten, however, that more than one story has been recently written upon this subject—the capture^ and'scuttling of ^ -passenger steamer—and it seems more likely that they have suggested the idea being adapted to the loss of the President than that a solitary pirate should have revealed such a long kept secret of the seag. —.London News. Mystified by an Abbreviation. Among tho stories told about the experiences of police telegraph operators by the attaches of tho electrical bureau is one which relates to an ex-special officer, who is now a regular operator at a substation up town. While acting as "sub" in a West Philadelphia district he received a call from the central, which he promptly wrote on his slate as he received it. At the close of the message he found that it read: "Send wagon to Phil. Ahosp. and learn condition of Hen. Coop." He was completely stalled. He could not .imagine •who Phil. Ahosp was, nor where he was to be found, nor what particular hencoop the central was interested in. He felt that there was a mistake somewhere, but waa satisfied that it must be at the other end of the wire. As the hour was near relieving time, he decided to wait and consult his relief before sending the wagon on a wild goose chase or asking the central to repeat.
