•fmpany. Beit lor and Hastings one day
isited the catacombs of Paris, the great
underground graveyard where thou
sands of corpses repose. While there
Dr. Hastings qtlietly told the superin
tendent that Beitler was the man next
to the mayor in Philadelphia, and that
guide was more than gracious.
“Suppose a fellow was to tuck one of
those under his arm?” asked Beitler sug
gestively, pointing to one of the grin
ning skulls. “If monsieur would like
them we will send him some.” Before
they reached the hotel the keener of the
corpses had wrapped up three moss cov
ered skulls and sent them to the suite of
rooms at the Hotel Continental which
the travelers occupied. When Mr. Gill
entered the room before the return of
the others he saw the package, and
thinking it was a nice present some of
the fellows had bought he opened it
and was horrified at the contents, which
rolled out on the floor. He fled in hot
haste from the room and could not be in
duced to gw back again. lie sent a bell boy
up to the room. Mr. Gill by close associa
tion became reconciled to the newest ac
,< cessions to the party and was finally in
duced to accept one of the skulls, which

When,the Pacific Mail steamer City
of Now xork arrived from Panama, J
A. Magee, a New York sporting man,
was one of the passengers. When he
got up he forgot nine SIOO bills in a
email pocketbook that he had placed
under his pillow the night before, and
when the tug came alongside, while the
I steamer was at anchor in the stream, he
made haste to land. No sooner had he
reached the Baldwin hotel than he dis
covered his loss, and hiring a coupe
made for the Pacific Mail dock, which
he reached just as the steamer was made
fast. An inquiry for the lost bills
proved that they were safe in Captain
Johnston’s hands. Ah Ping, a Chinese
in the steward’s department, while mak
ing up Magee’s berth, had found the
bills aasd taken them to the captain.
M>gee was handed his money, and
called for Ah Ping, to whom he gave
The Chinese had hardly time to appre
ciate his good luck when Chief Steward
Cottrell was angry because the stray
bills had not been given to him to re
turn to the owner, instead of the cap
tain, and ordered that Ah Ping should
be discharged. Unless the wrathy stew

officers of the company Ah Ping will

honest. Had he chosen he could easily
have secreted the valuable paper bills so
that no one could have found them and
made away with the whole gum.—San
A Political Club.
A good story is told on one of the po
litical managers. JJo was approached
*gGveTtil day* Lvloio election by a young
man who stated that he had organized
a, club of eighteen men and would
name it after any prominent man who
would furnish the uniforms. He did
not want much —just cape dusters and
plug hats. The manager studied the
matter over, and finally got the dusters
and hats and threw in some nice canes
for good measure.
This is the last that has been heard of
that club. It has not been named after
any prominent citizen so far as any one
is av/are. It has been learned, however,
that the young men have organized a
minstrel company, and are prepared to
give a nicely dressed street parade when
they start on the road.—lndianapolis
Tbe Chosen People of Chosen.
The announcement that the Cowley
manor estate, Cheltenham, is in the
\ market reminds a correspondent of a
quaint story in connection with Chosen,
a small village lying at the fringe of the
property. A worthy locum tenens
thought to please the good people of the
village, and gave out as his text, “And
make all thy Chosen people joyful.”
A horny handed swain, however, who
had wandered from a distant parish, in
terpolated the ejaculation, to the no
small consternation of the said locum
tenens and the amusement of the Chosen
people themselves, “And what about we
poor Hucklecut folk?” —Pall Mall Ga
Plant Shade Trees.
Again the time of year has rolled
around when deciduous trees shed their
leaves. The best time to transplant de
ciduous trees is during the fall of their
.eaves in the autumn and the bursting
of the buds into leaf in the spring. There
is little choice in many portions of this
country as to what particular time dur
ing the period mentioned trees should
bo transplanted so that the soil is in
proper condition. In this section, where
winter is well defined, the planting
period is divided by cold weather into
fall and spring, and the relative advan
tages of the seasons are less a matter of
moment than the fact that not nearly as
many trees are planted in either as there
ought to be. However, this is an oppor
tune time to remind those who have a
place to plant a tree that fall is a better
time than spring to set out trees.—Mc-

Slavery Still Exists.
A slave dhow, captured recently by
H. M. S. Blanche, has just been con
demned. She was on her way to Pemba
when the attention of the officer of the
watch was attracted by the unusual
number of Arabs in a dhow stand
ing in toward the land. On board
ing her the dhow was found to contain
thirty-three slaves and to have come
from Pangani. Three of the slaves were
selected by chance to be examined in the
Os these two came from the neighbor
hood of Mombasa. One, a male, said that
he had been sold by his brother on ac
count of famine prevailing in the dis
trict; the other, a young woman, said
that a year ago she had been sold by an
Arab of Mombasa, and had eventually
been sold to the captain of the dhow;
the third slave was a little boy, and
when examined he said he came from
Unyamwezi with a caravan. The cap
tain of the dhow said it was the business
of the people on the coast to sell slaves,
and that he had paid for every one of
the thirty-three slaves and had not stolen
or kidnaped any. The slaves were turned
over to the missionaries, and the captain
and Arab crew have been dealt with by
the sultan of Zanzibar. —London Army
and Navy Gazette.
Mr. Locke’s Fortunate Find.
I. N. Locke, of Wayne county, was
formerly an active trader. In May,
1872, he was in Chicago, and bought a lot
for a small sum. He put the deed in an
envelope and placed it in his pocket with
other papers. A few days afterward,
while getting into his buggy, he lost the
envelope and all its contents. He adver
tised for it, but really cared only for the
notes, thinking the lot of little value.
John Ritchey, a victim of softening of
the brain, was wandering aimlessly on
the street the day Locke lost his papers.
He found them and laid them away, and
even after his death no notice was taken
of the supposed worthless papers.
About ten days ago John Ritchey
found the package and gave it to Mr.
Locke, and through his attorneys his
claim has been established. Had the
deed remained concealed a few days
longer the twenty years would have ex
pired and no claim would have been al
lowable. It is a lot in the boulevard ad
dition, and the parties occupying it have
given Mr. Locke $20,000 for a quit claim.
A Berlin chemist claims to have dis
