2 ABOUT THE CYCLE. Allen and Sachtleben on the Homestretch. THE SAN JOSE ROAD CLUB. A Heartfelt Tribute to Thomas S. C'< bden - Outlook for the Coming Season. T was with regret that the cyclists of Sin Francisco said g<>od-by to Allen aud Sachtleben on Wednesday. During Ihelt brief stay in this city they made mnr.y friends who will watch their future careers with the interest born of honest admiration. They have already achieved a world-wide reputation as intrepid travelers vet more modest gentlemen were never met." Neatly all of the great papers of the East and England have told the story el their wonderful journey, and the New York Sun's able foreign editor^, honored them with a column leader entitled "The Greatest of Bicycle Rides." All of this adulation lir.s not turned '.heir heads* nor Is it likely to make them nomads or interfere with their success in the practical affairs of life. They should be welcomed by wheelmen everywhere, for their personalities prove that" the true cyclist is not a "sport and that "pushing a safety" is not incompatible with education and refinement. L>st Monday the young tourists, after a run to tie park, were entertained by the California Cycling Club at its rooms in the Mission, where, according tn the loyal members, fogs are unknown end incipient frosts are thawed by the warmth of falling rose leaves. Incidental to the day was a splendid lunch it: the bone ol Henry F. Wynne, secretary of the California Association of Cycling Clubs. The old Mission Dolores was visited, the Fathers kindly granting permission to stack half a score of pneumatics inside the churchyard against the adobe waits on which nung ancient tapestry—a rare conjunction of diverse civilizntlcnF. On Tuesday the Mission was revisited «nd a number of pood photographs obtained, tin ugh the Western Addition was rot neglected. It the boys along the road can only induce tie Wanderers to remove their gloves and will inclose a Columbian stamp for a reply the mystery of those forget-me-not rings will be explained. At the Stanford University, which they visited on Wednesday, they were met by Captain W. EL Lipsott of the Garden City 'cyclers, accompanied by Second Lieutenant Ed Wiiliston and I.W. Needhaiu of the lame erob, who acted as an escort to San Jose. That night they were the guests of the Garden City cyclers and next morning « ere accompanied to Gilrov by a delegation of wheelmen. At this rate of progress Ihev will reach New York about the Fourth •I July. But. then, time's no object' The five-mile handicap road race of the Fan Jo^e Road Club resulted as follows. Tl;e handicaps were: O. Ziegler and O. Captain O, Zityivr. <>-en. scratch; C. Belloli and W.Jamison, T5 m j c, J. Bailey and W. Sutticn, 30 Bee.; 11. Na-h, C. lieppe and A. Berryeasa, 45 sec. Z cglrr came in first, winning the gold medal for the best time, 16:41, and bievcle shoes for first in. O. Csen won the silver medal for the second-best tin 16:47 2-5, coming in third, close to Belloli, who came iv serond in 17 minutes. C. J. Belloli lias been elected serre!ary - treasurer of the ciub. Cantain Ziegier is 18 years of agp, nbout 5% feet tail and of handsome stature, weighing about 150 pounds. In 18r<0 he first appeared on the track in San Jo-e, and again in U92, en Sfptf mber 5. »t, September 9 at San Jose and November 24 st San Jose. At each event he developed considerable speed, but lost each time by •■< me accident or misunderstanding. Profiting by his former experience, he will be a^eious cmipetitor during the coming reason. The well-known Pathfinder Ciub of this city bad its first run since the late stormy weather en Thursday last to the Six-mile House, under the. leadership of President }':?. tagsn, Captain McCord being un avoidably absent. Fifteen members participated. Good progress was made, considering the roughness of the road. Upon reaching their destination an excellent collation was partaken of, which was thoroughly enjoyed. On tho return trip several 'short .-Milts were indulged in, in which the genial treasurer, Mr. Levy, acquitted hiiu-elf with distinction. .On Thursday the Pathfinders will nave a run to Ilayward*, wt-atuer permitting. Tlie Merced Bicycle Ciub cave a grand entartainnieut at the opera-house, Merced, iast Monday evening consisting of vocal and instrumental music, recitations, choruses, songs and readings, concluding with the laughable farce of "Lend Me Five Shillings." A profusion of cut flowers decorated the tables &nd piano, and in very Book : nd corner of the staeet-ould be seen potflovrers ami tropical plants. A fashionable audience filled the bouse to overflowing, evt-ry chair having been secured several days vrevit u?ly. The members of the Merced iJieyele Club have reason to be proud of the results of their first entertainment. This club is made up of the be=t young men in the town and its refining influence is felt i,nii much appreciated in society circles. A Sash-light photograph was taken of the per- Xormers. The cyclists of this city have sustained a ip;il loss by the departure by Thomas 8. Cobden, ex-secretary of the San Francisco Bicycle club, and one of the best-liked men vho ever rode a wheel, lie has been comrpiled by ill health to remove to seek a change of climate, and will seek the more rarified air of Denver. The following resolution, unanimously adopted by th« governing body of the San Francisco Bicycle Club en Thursday night, shows the esteem in which Mr. Cobden is held by those who know him best: Retched, By tie board of directors In regular eesslou that tit the several years of bis connection with the San Francisco Bicycle Club, do member hasdooe more for it* advancement and success t ban Mr. Cobden, ana mat In tits reslgualion find necessary departure our midst ihi* club lias lost a must efficient officer and a most ;.<:iive ainJ energetic member, md this division of the Lexgoe or Am -i lean Wheelmen audtiM cause of wheeling ceuerally on tljiscoa^t a most j.iaeut ■■ nd tntlaui.isiic worker; that in leaving us to take up Ills residence in a distant city he (Mints with him (lie recrets and well wishes of every member ol this club, the earnesi bore thai I c may be speedily restored to health and be M.rcis-lui In all Ins undertakluj,'". ihiw administration i f the Alameda c and Athletic Club is determined ti:at the name ef this pojtfar organization shali Lt- ke?)t to the for* during the ccniiug Already arrangeirents are being made for t tie great race ■»*#< in Mny and all of the best >nen in fe State will doubte inclnded in the list of entries. There '" a regular meeting of the- club a; Park to-niorrow eveuing and a full attendance i- desired. The movement in favor of a separate division of the L. A. W. for Southern California is like'y to prove successful and should not be opposed iv any section, for it is undoubtedly a move in the right direction. Chief Consul Strong has issued a circular lo all ieaauft clubs, the subs:aDce of which is as follows: At the approaching constitutional convention of il)e League of American Wtieenneii oa February 20 ii'it California will oHer an umeudmtnt to tlie national constitution, the efiect of which will be to permit tbe formation of a separate division in Southern California. in a constitutional convention a league club is entitled to as many votes as it has members.

The pneumatic tire problem has not been solved and never will be until bicycle riders thoroughly understand the use for which such tires were designed and learn to put a just limit upon the capability and durability of a sensitive *ir cushion, which is subject to severe and constant pounaing over uneven roads, and smooth surfaces, too, as a matter of fact. FIRE AT THE POTRERO. Supposed Loss of Life by the De- struction of a Hotel. About 1:30 ('dock this morning a fiie broke out, which is supposed to have originated in the kitchen of the Michigan Hotel. at the corner of Shasta and Michigan streets, run by Wester & Rhodes, and owned by Mrs. Hansen, a widow. There were about thirty-five people in the building, and owing to the rapidity with which the fire spread it would not be surprising if tome lives were lost. Some of the lodgers escaped in their night clothe! . The building was a two-story frame structure and was valued at about S3DOO* The place was insured for SI2OO. TOLD BY A DETECTIVE. How lie Protected Baseomb From a Green-Gootis Man. Cleveland Leader. Chief Drummoud of the United States Treasury Secret Service tell a good story. A man named liascorob came up from Tenuessee. Be had teceived a green-goods circular, and determined to trao the swindlers. Di ummond was detailed to go with him. "I put on a flannel shirt," says Drummond, "and an old pair of trousers, a rough pair of shoes and a soft hat and followed Bascomb to the meeting-place. He was accosted by a man who took him into a buildinc. 1 followed and stood upon a stairway where! could watch the door leading into the office of the swindlers. Alter a while the door opened and Fowler, a noted green-goods n>«u who was then employed by the Davis mothers, stepped half-way into the hall. Ha had a valise in his hand and was neither in the office nor out of It, but stood in the door. Bascomb had his eye en Fowler all th* time, as 1 afterward learned. While Fowler was in the door a colored brsydnrted across the hall with a valise in his hand. The exchange whs niaae so deftly that Bascomb didn't see it. In a minute Pa-comb came out and he and Fowler started for an express office. 1 foliowet'. They took a stage and I took "lie, too. Their stage stopped quite often, but mine didn't, and hi times I found I was abreast of them. Fearing that Fowler might recognize rue I would lie down flat upon the floor ol my staee whenever I got near the one I was following. The passengers were amazed, and though. 1 supoow, that I was an escaped lunatic. Fowler and iiascomb left their stage near the Adams Express office, and 1 alighted from mine. Just as Fowier was iv the act of banding the valise to the receiving clerk 1 tapped him on the shoulder and told him that I wanted him, and 'that, too,' pointing to the bag. "Bascomb was delighted. Tvo not him I I've git him !' said he. 'The vatic?,' he continued, 'is full of counterfeit mone>\' " 'My friend,' I replied, 'they grow smart men in Tenn*»«sep, but there are smarter ones in New York.* "Then Fo« ler put in: 'Look here,' said b« tome, 'let the j-iy tsxve th« vahse. "If you do, 1 :im a century ahead, and you will g<-t f;f;> c;<s -.' " "What aid he mean by that?" asked l>ruiun,ond. "He meant that the Davise* were to pay him SIOO for the part he had taken in the swindJp, and that they would give me $50 if I didn't interfere." "1 led Fowler and Bascomb into ft ballway next to the express office," continued Drununond, "and cut open the valise. It was filled with damp paper and a block of wood. Til be tetotaliy eoldarned.' said Bascomb. 'How did you do it?' lie asked Fowler." "And you arrested Fowler?" said I. "No. 1 let him go," Drumrnond replied. "There wasn't a point to be made against him under the law. There was no counterfeit money in the b^c. On the other hand. Fowler could have had me arrested for high•ay robbery, but of course he didn't. lie was glad enough tn make his escape." "And Bascomb?" "Oh, he return?d to Tennessee with his comb cut." PENSION OATHS. Some of Them Are Asserted to Be Really Worthless. Elward F. Wai'e, writing in Harper's, saya tnat g—4 citizens should make it their business to know more than they do about the ways 'n which the Go vt rnment disposes of the $ 11 9. 000,O.!0 annually spent on the pensiea lists. Of the oaths by which the lei.sions *re secured, Mr. Waite says: The question of the sufficiency of evidence la obviously an individual cue in every claim, but this general statement may be ventured, that the requirement* of the Penson Bureau have since the late war undergone a ate&dy reduction. That this bureau has been, on the whole, as honestly and Intelligently conducted as any administrative branch of tne Government, no one who is conversant with the facts will deny: but an effective public sentiment ha« demanded a constant liberalization of the process of adjudicating claims, just as it has by legislation increased rates, removed limitation and increase! groups of pensioners. No course has been open to the officials of the bureau but compliance, and though ail safeguards that tha people will tolerate .-ire still retained, thousands Ol pension claims are annually allowed upon evidence which woultl not draw one dollar from the picket of a prudent business man, however anxious to satisfy all just demands. A prlma-facie case is mad«? out in every instance. to be sure, but there is generally a very high degree of probability that the affidavits exceed the real knowledeeof the witnesses concerning the fact-, in question. It is notorious that n great proportion of the ex-parte affidavits in pension case?, even when made lv men »'lin in ordinary busiuess are distinguished for strict Integrity, are made with shameful lack of care and scruple. Statements are drawn up by the &cents of applicants con turning such averments as the exigencies of the ca»e demand, and in numerous instances are signed by persons who not only have do knowledge of the facts recited, but are not even aware of the contents of the writing; while many magistrates habitually take acknowledgments of pension affidavits without administration of an oath. BIGGEST IN THE WORLD. Artificial Cistern Which Has Never Been Fully Explored. The largest artificial cistern in the world is at Constantinople, and is known as the Yere-B«lan-Serai. The approach to tnis immense subterranean cistern is through a Turkish house. After entering it, a visitor passes through the entrance-hall into a courtyard, and, descending a seeD slope of slippery earth, finds hiii, self »t the op-Mime of the dun ana mysterious Palace ol Water.*.

They secured $30 in coin. G. D. Collins of Oakland has secured the release ef lira. Sarati J. Webster from the Agnovvs Insane Asylum on a writ of habeas corpus. It was shown that she was not insane, but that she ww suffering from cancer of the breast. The Oakland Associated Charities will meet to-night, when a director in place of the late Eli Pluyter will be elected. A permanent. secretary will aho be elected to take the place of W. H. O'Brien, who has become manager of the Hotel Mclropole. Tne association has ordered resolutions of respect to the memory of Mr. Playter engrossed. Seme Improvements are to be made in the Free Public Library. The railings will be removed in order to allow patrons free access to the librarian's desk, and it is also contemplated to allow patrons the free use (f the entire library instead of keeping them outside of the railing. Since taking charge, on January i. Librarian Peterson has had a new office fitted up. A few days ago 300 n«w box) Us were received. Sanitary Inspector SebaftVr complained to tht» Board of Health, Friday night, of & lack of drainage in certain parts of East Oakland, and tha secretary was instructed to report the matter to the Council. Yesterday City Engineer Morgan slated that all had drainage will b«» remedied by a proposed inter' opting sewer, for which he is now preparing plans. li is intended to drain 1300 acres on the eastern shorn of Lake Merritt and to furnish an outlet for the 1400 feet of sewer built last fall on Hanover avenue, an] also for the 3000 leet lately built on Perry street. These, together with several smaller channels, have no outlet at present. The new county liquor license law went into effect last Saturday. The co»t of a license is increased from $20 to $30 per quarter. Some of the outside salcons are said to be doing business without a license, and to bring about a better order of things the Supervisors recently appointed W. 11.

The extension will take the road to the middle ol the Mbraga ranch, and the land will then be divided and plactd on the market. The work of .extension will be completed in about sixty days. The Swedish-American Political Club has been reorganized to take part in the city campaign. The officers are as follows: President, Fred Sand«rliu; presidents, C G. Kiil-t:om and li. Armstrong; secretary, J. Irvinson; treasurer, John Elf. "The Relation of the Church to the Theater" was the topic of the Rev. Dr. Dixon'a sermon at the Tenti -avenue Bap- list . urcii last night. He referred to the effort to hare [he Macdonough Theater closed on Sunday night and sad that the church has do more moral right to demand theclosiugof the theater than the theater to demand the closing of tlio church. "It is the province of the church to combat evil with good and not by force or coercion," he said. "The church does not Keep itself ally» just to tell people what to do. You must via them by the power of your sympathy, love and prayer. You can accomplish nothing by going to your formal services and singing your hymns, but you must hurl the thunderbolt of ri;htfroui God's own standpoint, using trie teachings of love and purity for it. Get your own heart right and then teach others." Max bimunson, the tailor of hou«ebreating tendencies, was brought to Oakland from San Francisco yesterday and charged with burglary. II is suspected of Having had a hand in the safe-cracking at Stewart's butcher-shop in East Oakland several weeks ago. Berkeley. The Society of Kings l>»u;:b.ters of Berkeley is making preparations for an evening of tableaux representing different scenes in th» life of Columbus, suggested, it may be said, by the late issue ot Columbian stamps. Tn* entertainment will b« given during February at Odd Fellows' Hall, ned the proceeds will probably be used to endow cot in the Children's Hospital, San Francisco. An incorporation known as the Surgical Ward Fund, has been organized in Berkeley without capital stock, but with a distinct purpose. Several months ago Mrs. lien Morgan gave a Japanese fete, the proceeds of which she donated to the surgical ward of the Children's Hospital, San Francisco. The proceeds of one of the Olympic- U. C. footbail games went for the same purpose, and now this organization is formed to regularly direct funds from Berkeley to the Children's Hospital: The directors are: Mrs. Ben Morgan. Mrs. James Spiers, Mrs. Charles Blake, Mrs. John Garbrr, Mrs. John Builard. Daring the week Lockout Mountain Post. G. A. EL, elected as the year's officer*: D. S. Waterman, commander; E. P.

Avers, quartermaster. he Southern Pacific Electric Road gives great satisfaction. The cars run regularly at rive and seven-minute intervals, making the trip In. thirty minutes, connect directly with the Oakland local at Broadway end continue the owl cars up to 1 o'cieck at night. There is one compla'nr, however: There is no waiting-room at the Choatestreet end of the road and the ladies may be obliged to stand in the rain for five minutes or more while waiting for a car. Last Friday morning the saloon of Jacob Lehmcuhl, near th? station at Golden Gate, was broken into and $40 taken from the til). University * Notes. The university reopens to-day for the second half year, though Professor liowison held his lecture "Philosophy of Education" for teachers last Saturday. During the vacation various repairs have been made about the buildings, and the new electrical engineering building in process of construction has advanced its wails to the third story. An overhead system of wires will connect the electric bells of the halls with the clockwork in the library, which is controlled from the Lick Observatory, thus doing away with the hand ringing of the old • .North Hall cowbell. The University Glee Club, which made its first tour during the holiday recess/reels rather dissatisfied with the results of the trip. Their manager did not advertise them to any extent, and hence they played to small houses, except in one or. two places i where some resident U. C men interested the town in them, when they received rousing receptions. As it was, they came back to Berkeley with a deficit of about S4OO. What with a football surplus that disappeared, a glee club pile that never was made nnrt a president who failed to materialize, the University of California seems temporarily to have lost its bold on this fleeting show. The local trains run ten minutes to the hour and half-hour, and, as a student can be at the university ten minutes later, the hours for recitation have always been artanged to suit the convenience of the large number of students living out of Berkeley. The only disadvantage in the system lay in the short lunch hour from 12:30 to 1:15, and the late (5 o'clock) last recitation. To obviate these difficulties the faculty has introduced h change of questionable merit, m that, beginning with to-day, the hours run : 8:30, 9:25, 10:20, 11:15; lunch. 12 to 1; 1, 1:55. 2:50,3:45. The last recitation thus doses at 4 o'clock. FOR WEARING PEARLS. It Was a Penal Offense in Venice Once Upon a Time. Hoimii (ilobe. in 1541 the Venetian Senate made it a peual offense to wear more than one siring of pearls, and that had to be of uot higher value than 200 ducats. Even this did not satisfy them. In 1562 they made the law a corollary that no woman, except the doge's wife and daughter, wete to wear any pearls after the tenth year of their marriage, nor were even young wives to we»r more than a single necklace of an outside value of 400 ducats, the same to be duly stamped and appraised by the authorities. The Venetian women revolted acainst certain other restrictions about dress materials. They were, si angry that: they formed an alliance nad petitioned the Popeon. the subject. , It was the best thing they could do, for his holiness, ever anxious to assert himself in Venice, annulled the obnoxious d«-cri'», which bad emanated ftom the Venetian patriarch. l - ■'■>• , Anon, however, they got to despise the various sumptuary Jaws which came upon them thick as autumnal leaves. Nearly every one disregarded them. True, tho executive employed spies, whose business it was to go about "taking stock" of the people, measuring with their eyes the ladies' dresses and gues9ing at their value. Now and then a prosecution occurred. If the gown was at fault for its suruptuousness both the owner and Its maker were fined. If a lady was found with more pearls on her person than was permissible she whs liable tn n penally of no less than 200 ducats, of which half went to the informer. L'ut it was by no means light and easy work — this of professional spy. The times had got so much out of joint that there was, on an average, a homicide daily in the city, without mention of the various disappearances, which often had a sanguiuary sig- Ditk*an;e. A patrician might submit to pay the tino for extravagance, but it would afterward be excusable in the young bloods of the patrician's family if they waylaid the informer and either perforated him with their rapiers or knocked him on the head and tumbled him into the, canal. FOUR BLACK EYES. They Belong to Daughters of Sunny Sicily. Two New Street Mendicants Whose Comely Faces and Sweet Voices Are Their Only Fortunes. Have you seen them? They dre9s in modest black, which Is tin color of their long, wavy hair and witching eyes. One carries a guitar, the other an accordlon. Both luve good contralto voices which only lack cultivation lo fit them for the comic opera stage. Olive is the complexion, and both faces are lair to look upon. They are street mendicants, daughters of sunny Sicily and children of tho streets. Iho Fair Singers. One Is 14; perhaps the other is 16. Both look older and wiser, but that is the way of the Southern damsel. Wherever they stop a crowd quickly gathers, mid when the youngest one passes round her faded hut the nickels and dimes flow into it generously. Il.i you heard them sine ? It is worth a nickel, ?nil the jostling of the crowd about them to hear their Latin version of "Ta-ia-ra-booru-de-By," or "White Wing«," or "1 Dreamt That 1 Dwelt in Marble Halls." Their lips are red without paint and there in the glow of health on their cheeks. From the standpoint of "my lady with three toilets a day" they are hardly beauties, but their dark eyelashes ara seductive find their youth and vivacity though shown through shabbiuess and rags "catch on" Immensely. They remind you of Venice or of Genoa or of II me when you see them ana hear them at their calling in the streets and they are one more evidence of the city's cosmopolitan character. They are San Francisco's lateet acquisition. You can find them in trie downtown thoroughfare* any day. When they play and sing under your window toss them a coin and breathe the with Hint they may never grow older nor more guileless. -•' SHOOTING FROM A STICK. Things Are Not AJways What They Seem Nowadays. .New York Herald. "Let's lake a tramp in the woods," said my fiiend Jim to me last Sunday. The invitation was too tempting to be resisted. The dou— a fine setter— seemed to enjoy It as much as we did, or more, for he wagged his tail, jumped, barked and indulged in every manifestation, of delight known to the canine race. The spirit of the heathen was upon me. ".By Jove," I could not resist exclaiming, "I wish it weren't Sunday and we might have some shooting." ggjjgg "I feel a little that way myself," said Jim with a smile, "but we may get a partridge or two." "How? Do you think they are going to fly right into our hands?" "No, not exactly, but it Is the unexpected that happens sometime!*, you know." I didn't Bee the point, but 1 had observed before that Jim's observations sometimes lacked pertinency. We came to a field of stubble. Suddenly the sett» r, who was decidedly heretical iv hit ways and views, made a point. My storting blood arose. "If I had a gun I'd take a sjiot if it cost me ten years in purgatory," I said, and felt better for having said it. Jim said nothing. That's one of his pro. yoking ways. He never get» excited. He turned his back on me and began monkeyinn with his walking-stick. "Gee whiz!". I exclaimed as the partridge flew up, "what a chance that is missed." Jim w nee tad round and brought his walking-stick up to his shoulder. "Trying some hypnotic"— But befora 1 could finish the sentence there was a flash and a roporr, both proceeding from the walking-stick, and as I'm a living sinner that partridge dropped as dead as a hammer. Then Jim showed rue what tho walking stick was made of. It was a walking stick outsido end a shotgun inside, and the whole business didn't seem to weigh more than a trifle over two pounds. To load it you just gave the handle a turn and a yank and there was a breech exposed. Into that you shoved the cartridge, gave the handle another turn and n yank, and lo! the walking stick was loaded, cocked and ready for business, the handle taking the place of a butt, and by means of a joint, hardly apparent when the tiling was used as a walking stick, nn angle was formed, thus providing a very good substitute for a stock. You preyed a button in lieu of a trigger and the stick did the rest. "I call that my Sunday pun," said Jim. "It cost me only S2O, and I've had twice that amount of fun out nf it already. You see it would never do for me to be seen going through the village with a gun on my shoulders un Sundays. 1 should be mane tup target for no end of hypocritical indignation. But the walking stick Is above suspicion. - "And when I cot into the 0«lds and a partridge comes my way 1 have my, fun. Of course It isn't a3 handy. as a regular shotgun, but it is surprising how well one can get along with it with a little practice. "Take it all in all there's lots of sport to bo had out of a walking-stick shotgun." '■■ ' A Moral for Older Ones in This.

GETTING BEARINGS IN A FOG. How Captain Cristofo Vespucci Maginnis Located Where He Was in the Bay. Tue lights of Uutchertown are the beacous whlcu by night servo to guide the mariners who sail between Third-street wharf and Hunter's Point. They are excellent guides on a dark night when the mariners do not cars to scan the vaulted arch for the location of tho dog star, and answer nil tho purpose of a compass to steer by, but woe betkle the unfortunate skipper who when between shores finds himself suddenly surrounded by one of those dense fogs (feat often drop down ou the bay. In such a contingency the mariner misses the guiding star and the lights of Butcher* town. He puts trust in providence, sincerely hopes that the swift current will not carry him to Hie Alaineda shore or against Mi-si.'ii Rock or some vessel anchored in the fair way. Cristofo Vespucci Maginuis, who has been man and master aboard ship for these thirty years or more, is the owner of a vessel that is a cross between a square-tee schooner and a Chinese junk, a combination, of two models that were destroyed after this vessel had been built In order to prevent any shipbuilder from constructing another like it. Alaginnis runs his vessel between the two points already named and carries passengers who prefer n ride on the wild waves to oue on a buckboard over the mud-covered reads of the southern part of the county. A few nights ago Maginnis, whose manly breast swells with pride when ha is addressed as "Captain," left the wharf with three passengers on the forward deck. It waj* dark, but as he had the tide with him and a fair wind, and had often made the trip by night, he felt safo in starting. "Never a iear, boys," said he, addressing li is passengers; "I'll say" to you as Hank Monks said to the editor of the- Tribune, 'Keep your seat and I'll get you there.' " Captain Maginnis made a tack for Mission Rock anil after passing it was lacking tor tee rolling-mills, when one of those fogs sprang up, and the nondescript vessel was iv it, but out of sight ot guiding lights. "We're in for it now," suggested one of the passengers, who noticed that the bor.t was drifting. "Never a fear," exclaimed the skipper; "we'll pull cut all right as soin as we get sit; til ol th« lights of liutchertown. Then wus silence for a moment. Then the skipper called to his crew, a one-legj;?d naval veteran, vs ho stumps along on a peg leg and perfoiuts all the duties tliat are required of cabin-buy, man before the mast and mate. "Hey, there, forward! cast the lead line." "Aye, aye, sir," answered the crew. "What does she bring up?" "."-ami," answered the crew. The vessel drifted ; the passengers looked at each other, but said not a word. Again the order "cast the lino" was given. "What does she bring up?" asked Skipper Maginnis. "Mud," was the answer that floated from stem to stern and lost itself in the fog bank. There was more silence as the vossel drifted upward with the flood. "Cast the line." "Aye, aye, sir," responded the one-legged crew. There was a splash, a rushing of the lino over the. raii and then the skipper once more asked, "What does she bung up?'' The crew hesitated, held the lead line close to the white light on the port side aud answered, "Tripe." "Saved!" exclaimed Captain Maginnis. "Cast the anchor and we'll lay-to till this fog rises." A chunk of pig-lead that did service for nn anchor went by the board and the vessel swung lazily around. '•What do you "mean by saved?" asked one of the passengers. "Mean— what do 1 mean? 1 mean, sir, that 1 have found my bearings. ' That piece of tripe means that we are off Butchertown and in a littla while we will seethe lights that will guide us on our journey to the point. A little fog don't bother me; all I want la to got my bearings." hrf mf J i.iiT i« rrin- * HUNTING WITH BLOWGUNS. Savages of Guiana Use These Queer Weapons With Poisoned Arrows. Washington Star. The blowpipes used by the savages of Guiana for shooting poisoned* arrows are very wonderful weapons indeed. Th« climate of this equatorial region, being both very hot and very moist, produces a vegetation of astonishing luxuriance. The forests are commonly ankle deep in water for mile after mile, and consequently the animals found there mostly inhabit the trees. Monkeys are exceedingly numerous. For killing tbese tree-dwelling creatures the blowgun is the best possible instrument. It is made from a peculiar kind of reed, and, although eleven or twelve feet its weight is only one and a half pounds. It is provided, like a rifle, with a fore sight and a back sight, the latter being male of the teeth of a small beast called the acouchi. The natives are most careful respecting the straightness of their bluw-guns and never allow them to lean against anything lest they should be warped. Tim arrows employed are made from the leaf-ribs of a kind of palm made to fit the bore of the gun by ii wrapping of wild cotton fastened with a fiber of silkgras*. Great art is required to put on the cotton properly. The arrow is about ten inches long, no thicker than a crow quill, and at one end is brought to a point as sharp m a needle by scraping it. between the kcen-edgpi], saw-like teeth of the pirai fun. One-half of a pirai jaw is always suspended to the quiver. The vegetable poison used for envenoming the arrow* is called "curaii." It is extremely powerful and will kill a man within a few minutes when introduced into the circulation by an arrow-point, though it is harmless when swallowed. It is very difficult to procure the strongest "curari" from the natives, who are most unwilling to part with it. The arrowheads are kept carefully separate from the • halts as a precaution against accidents, the savages themselves being vary much raid of the poisons which they employ. The secret of. preparing .the poison is handed down by the medicine men from generation to generation, and the common people are not permitted to know it. First must be, sought the curaii vine, which is closely allied to the tree which furnishes stryennino aud to l he upas tree, from which the ;Diaks of Borneo get the poison for their arrows. When the poisonmaker has found the curari he looks for two bulbous plants, the items of which yield a glutinous juice. Another vegetable ingredient is the bitter root, commonly used by these savages in poisoning water for the purpose of catching fish. To the mixture composed of these elements the medicine mau adds two kinds of venomous ants and the poison fangs of deadly species of snakes. The whole is allowed to simmer over a tiro, the snakes' fangs and ants being pounded , "nnd thrown into toe pot. Tim boiling is continued until the poison is reduced to a thick brown syrup. Finally a few arrows are dipped experimentally in the poison and its effect is tried upon some animal or bird. If satisfactory the poison is poured into a spherical earthen pot, in which it is kept carefully covered over with leaves to exclude air and moisture. ■■"'.-. NO MORAL IN THIS. Cholera Germs Succumb to Tobacco, so They Say in Hamburg. Boston Ulube. Whatever may be said against the use of tobacco, it appears to be certain that it is a patent destroyer of disease germs, aud the habitual smoker is well protected against various foims of infection. During the Indian mutiny a detachment of troops, consisting of Europeans, native sappers, part of a Sikh regiment and souie companies of sepoy 9, was on the march, when cholera attacked the Sikhs and carried off aud invalided 40 per cent of them, while the Europeans, the sepoys and t lie sappers were scarcely aft'ected, though they were marching under exactly the same conditions. But the Sikhs did nut smoke, while the others smoked incessantly. Ttie Cigar Manufacturers' Association in Hamburg state* that there have been only eight cases of cholera and four deaths among the whole body of 5000 cigannakers in tiiat sorely-stricken city. The results of experiments conducted by Drs. liuuner and Wernocko at Berlin show that only a few minutes' contact with tobneco leaf is enough to shrivel up the cholera bacillus, nnd tobacco smoke Droves f 1 1 Hi to it with equal rapidity.

He Taught The Drunken Lumbermen an Effective Lesson in Manners. St. Louis Globe- Democrat. "I was going from Oshkosii up to Green Bay last spring," said George Bailey, now a guest at the Laclede. "I had for fellowpassengers half a dozen lumbermen, who had just been paid off and bad gone to Oshkosh to have a little fun with the boys. "There were but two coaches on the train, a 'indies' car' and a smoker, and the lumbermen took possession of both and ran th« train to suit themselves. For the first few miles they were good-humored, and the passengers enjoyed their pranks, but the Oshkosh whisky finally began to assert itself and they began looking for a row. 'They went through the coaches smashing the men's hats down over their eyes. This failing to produce the desired result", they began singing ribald songs in the 'ladles' car.' There were a dozen men aboard besides the train crew, but, the. ruffians were big, strapi ing fellow*, and nobody cared to provoke a 'difficulty with them. "Presently a little Boston dude, with a complexion like a tallow candle and a consumptive cough, got up, laid off his overcoat, and then his undercoat and vest. Then he removed his spectacles, wiped the dust from them, put them in a case and tightened up his t>ilk surcingle a notch. The lumbermen, who were spread out over several seat?, with their feet dancing in the aisles, watched his preparations and wanted to know if he was preparing to take a bath. - When he had arranged his affairs to his liking he ram« down the aisle, lie caught thn leader of the gang by tfte~l»-gs, whirled him over in the seat and struck him twice just behind the ear. The blows sounded like the impact of a pile driver. The other toughs rushed to the relief of their leaders aud were knocked sprawling over the seats. Then the tallowfaced dude » ulied the bellcord. The train came to a »top, and he began dragging hi 3 victims out on the platform. "Everybody lent a fund, and two minutes later we were steaming away, six passengers short. The youngsters who did the business so beautifully had just graduated at Harvard, where, among other things of more or less value, he had acquired the science of 'putting up his dukes.'

The Me M.deQuatrafapes, thb French ethnologist, said all mankind came from a central mass In Northern Asia, and that there were three fundamental types— black, white and yellow. These three types scattered over the world and intermingled, forming, in course of time, distinct races of human beings.
