Soitie Stray Notes from the Chautau- qnft Meeting—BHef Synopsis of the Addresses- Large Crowds Gather to Heat Sam. Jones, Ignatius Donnelly, and Other Noted Speakers. Rev. Sam Jones is unique in his Way; he impresses his audience not more by what he says than by his manner of saying it; his language is not classical, but he has the power to move his audience to laughter and tears at will; he tells you nothing very new, but he tells it in a new way and you feel that his beliefs are genuine. The auditorium would not hold the vast audience that gathered to hear his famous lecture on July 13, entitled, "Get There." A great many people would like to jret there socially, a great many wish to get there politically, and a great many wish to get there financially; but because they do not wish to get there manfully, they are left and do not get there. The greatest failure is to fail in manhood. Mr. Jones assured the audience that he was a Christian minister, but his Christianity is not of the kind that would always be singing about the good bye and bye; better bo up and doing in the now and now!' The little ministers who talk of this world as a howling wilderness know nothing about religion. I want the good opinion of people nowl I want to be recognized here! When I get to heaven and wear my golden crown and carry my harp, why then, people can do as they please! Patience, charity, goodness are the great virtues to cultivate here and now. Dr. A. A. Willits of Philadelphia delivered a sermon of great power on Sunday morning. His theme was "The Value of the Bible." Dr. Willits is now seventy three-years of age and for forty years ho has been active in the ministry. His face is radiant and youthful and his step firm and elastic, and he, too, preaches the gospel of hope and good cheer. We doubt whether a Chautauqua audience would listen to one of the old-fashioned, doleful sermonsi The Chautauqua idea is, the world is a good world, and our Heavenly Father is in the midst. The songs are songs of cheer, and nothing is said or sung that is out of harmony with the peaceful murmuring of the waters and the whispering 1 anthems of the grand old trees. Hon. Ignatius Donnelly drew a vast audience to listen to his lecture upon ''The A. P. A. and the Public Schools." Mr. Donnelly is a cultured and impressive speaker. He thinks there is nothing to fear from Catholicism. There is no demand for any person to join a secret society and take an oath that he will give no work to a Catholic. The oath itself is unconstitutional and against the laws of the government. Our public school epstem is the pride and glory of both Protestants and Catholics, and we need to cultivate the feeling of friendship and brotherly good-will. Thore is a new Catholicism as well as a new Methodism and a new Presbyterianism, and since the days of the Inquisition we have had Quaker persecution and witch burning in New England and slave holding in the south. We need to grow away from narrowness and bitterness and out into the broad field of Christian brotherhood and charity. Dr. A. I. Palmer of New York City was one of the speakers whose silvery tones will long 1 be remembered. Company D and the "Die-No-Mores," how they live again under his magic touch! We see a brave band of college boys with their eager faces -turned toward the foe; we hear their ready step when the command is to go forward; we watch in vain for their home coming, for they fell with their banner uplifted and facing for march; but we glory in a free country because they lived and died. We doubt whether a more patriotic lecture could be given than that given by Dr. Palmer, who was himself a member of Company D of 45th New York regiment. He was a prisoner in Lilpby. He says: I think I was spared to keep green the memory of my comrades. To show how prone we all are to become forgetful of the finest and best lessons Dr. Palmer related this incident: "A few years ago I happened to be in the town where a brother of one of this brave band— the Die-No- Mores — was residing; he was a man of wealth, a farmer; it was the anniversary day of his brother's death, and I thought I would call and see him. I came to the house; no flag was flying; nothing to show that this was a memorial day. I met the brother and asked him if he remembered this was an anniversary day, the anniversary of bis brother's death i Ah, yes, he said; I do remember now, it happened in beet time! One of the brightest heroes of the war to be remembered because his death happened in beet timel For the glory of our country, said Dr. Palmer, with emphasis, let us remember the lessons of patriotism in some other wayl" Dr. Palmer, who is a Methodist minister, paid a beautiful tribute to the Sisters of Charity who visited the soldiers in the hospitals and were SQ kind to them. In closing he said: " I ask nothing better for the order of deaconesses, which has been instituted in the Methodist cburob, than that they should emulate the Sisters of Charity in their noble work and go about, as did the Master, doing good." o.

Horrible Uantli of ft Prtrrt»«r'« in Otottln. tt was about the middle of May, 18D3, and Mrs. fiichafd Smith,the wife of a farmer, had gone to the field With hef husband, who was replanting corn that had fatted to cornr* up regularly. While they were at work Mrs. Smith wandered off to one aide of the field where there was a thicket of dewberry vines. While picking the berries she stood upon a ptle of rocks had been picked up from the field and thrown in a heap and the vines had covered them. ' When she finally started to step down some of the st nes were dislodged and rutted noisily down. Instantly the pile swarmed with furious serpents, that hissed and writhed about the frightened woman like so many demons. The sight was so terrible that Mrs. Smith stood horror-stricken white the venomous creatures twisted and twined about her limbs and glided over her person, striking and biting her furiously. At last fear gave way and she screamed for help. The men soon • came to her rescue and were nearly overcome by the siglit The wretched woman was now fighting with all her strength for life. She grappled the writhing things and attempted to tear them away. Acting on the direction of her friends, she stumbled to the open field, where the/ could assist her, and in a few minutes seventeen copperheads and four rattlesnakes had been killed. Several of them had followed her from the stone-pile, hissing and writhing in anger. As soon as possible Mrs Smith was taken to her home and assistance summoned, but there was not the slightest chance of saving her life. Her body became quickly swollen to an enormous extent, and the skin assumed hideous colors. She had benn bitten a dozen times in the face, and her features became one mass of bloated green and black. Sight fled and speech left her. The pain soon drove her into delirium, and in the most horrible agony life passed away. FLORAL CURIOSITIES. Violet PlanU Thiit Cost Over Sixty Dollars Euoli. Few people would want to pay 32,000 for thirty-two violet plants. Yet that is what a San Francisco florist sold that man-/ roots for, and he does not think ho was overpaid either. As may be supposed, the violets are curiosities. They are the outcome of years of patient hybridizing. Only violets of one gender grow on a plant. This renders them capable of being experimented with siiccessfully. The big, bold double violet is the male flower. The demure single blossom is the female. From the double flower the pollen is carefully cub and placed in the cup of the single blossom. Only one blossom in a hundred of those artificially treated will produce seed. This seed is then planted, and the resultant violet is a?ain hybridized with some other remarkable specimen. Sometimes odd colors are obtained. Sometimes odd form. A year ago a nurseryman produced a violet giant. It was four times larger than the ordinary flower, and grew on a stein from twelve to fifteen inches long. The plant on which these remarkable blossoms grew sprang up from one of the seeds resulting from a long series of hybridizing. It was subdivided and now there are thirty-two plants. These' were purchased by a city florist for 83,000. An iron-bound contract prevents the propagator from giving away, selling or keeping a single rootlet. A nursery will be started to be devoted to multiplying the peculiar plant, None of the plants or blossoms will be sold for two years, by which time the thirty- two roots will have grown to 4,000,000 or 5,000,000. The violet has been named the "Tiburcio Parrott," after the well-known capitalist. A Thing of Snares and Pitfalls, What an elusive thing a new language is, to be sure. A lovely old German lady, showing me her wonderfully trained birds, ordered one of them to sing, and as it prettily obeyed she lovingly said: "Poor creature! he is blind all over," meaning totally blind. Old Mr. Scanner, the German merchant, well versed in his own language, but always in hot water with ours, once writing an English letter fell into controversy with the word "before," and not satisfied as to its final letter, he sung out to his partner in the other room: "Oh, Benham, is there behind an e in before?" Jimmy Wasn't Converted, The story is told of a parent who bad become a recent convert to hypnotism. His small son, who had heard him discussing the subject, asked what hypnotism was. He did not answer, but with the imperative manner of a professional mesmerist, said: Now, Jimmy, do you hear? That Is not a clock, but a dickey-bird, chip, chip!" Jimmie turned and fled pre* cipitately, prying: ''Mammal Mammal Papa's got the Artumus and the floopiklrt.

Uncle Sam has gone somewhat extensively into the business of buying reindeer, and the first consignment is now in San Francisco, very much the worse for wear. The animals have been here for three weeks, and are second of the kind ever brought to the city, Some time ago two were obtained for Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, but due has since died. The animals were bought by the government agent, H. Bruce, in Siberia. The purpose of the purchase is to introduce the reindeer in Alaska, where they Will be used instead of dogs, it is impossible to use horses, and dogs do not serve the purpose as well as they might. Some time ago there was a season of the greatest distress among the Es |uiinos in Alaska. The report of it led to a congressional investigation it:id the appropriation of several thousand dollars, part of which was to buy reindeer in Siberia and have them brought to Alaska. An agent was dispatched to Siberia, and his first consignment is now stationed in San Francisco in a lot adjacent to the Lick paths. The animals will be used to great advantage at the North. They are small but very swift and powerful. In Siberia they cost 85 apiece. The natives have a peculiar way of harnessing and driving the animals. The harness is simply a band over the shoulders and between the legs. The deer is fastened to the center and left of the sled, but not to the right. It is steered by the horns and covers the ground as rabidly as a good horse. TOO MUCH FOR THE THIEF. A Sennlblo Sorvttit Who Kept Her Eyes ou u Strange Visitor. The other day a man of gentlemanly appearance called at a house in a well-known suburb of Now York. In answer to his icnoclc the housemaid came 10 i.ho 'lour. "Is Mr. !'• — in?" said the gentleman. "He's just gone out, sir." "Is Mrs. P at home?" "Xo, sir; she went out with master." "Dear me, how unfortunate! I wanted particularly to see one of them. Can I leave a note?" "Oh, yes, sir. Come in please," replied the girl, ushering tho visitor into the dining room. But instead of leaving him alone she rang for another servant, whom she desired to bring writing materials. Tho gentleman wrote his note, in- closed it in an envelope, addressed it and left it on the table. This being done he departed with a profusion of thanks to the maid, who escorted him to the door. On returning homa Mr P— found the note awaiting him. It ran thus: "Your servant is no fool!" The comp'iment was fully justified by a paragraph in the next day's paper, giving an account of the plunder of a neighboring 1 mansion by a similar visitor. THOUGH MARRYING A TITLE. Gilts From Titled Amor-loans to Aclele Grant. The presents to the new countess of Essex, who was Miss Adele Grant, on the occasion of her wedding are curiously instructive. Among the noble .relatives and friends of the earl o'f Essex who contributed gifts I notice that the countess Cairns sent a silver photograph frame; the duchess of Manchester, an American woman, an eagle feather fan; Lady Randolph Churchill, who was Leonard Jerome's daughter, a jeweled matchbox; and the duchess of Marlborough, who used to be Miss Lily Post, of Troy, a diamond and tortoise shell hairpin. American women certainly have the quality of assimilation strongly developed, and it's very very funny to see how quickly those American-born ladies of the English aristocracy have fallen into the habit of wasting as little money as possible on wedding v gifts. It may bo interesting to point "out that the gifts from the unpretending and untitled American friends of the countess of Essex exceed in almost every case in value the sum total of those contributed by her expatriated countrywomen. Winning Over the Boy*. When the lata Lucy Stone started out to lecture for equal laws she had no co-operation and no backing, and started out absolutely alone. So far as she knew there were only a few persons in the country who had any sympathy with the idea of equal rights. She put up the posters for her own meetings with a little package of tacks and a stone picked up from the street. Sometimes the boys followed her hooting and preparing to tear the posters, down. Then she would stop and call the boys about her and hold a preliminary meeting in the street, until she bad won them all over and persuaded them to let her posters alone. . ^ The Notation of the Planet* The rotatiop of the planets on their ajtjs is oeptaiuly caused, by that elec- trjo force which makes them magnets, and the revolution of the planets around the sun ty the rotation of the BUR on its axis.
