An English periodical, reviewing
General Grant's Memoirs, says that
“Grant was the son of a farmer, who
gave him a much better education than
he had himself received;” that “the
civil war obliged Grant to become a
soldier, in which capacity he served for
fourteen years, when he again took to
farming, which he had to relinquish on
account of ill health;” that “he then be
camo successively estate agent, clerk in a
store, Senator ar.d President.” It is a
little strange that the English reviewer
should have overlooked the fact that
Grant was also a steamboat captain,
manager of a comic opera opera company,
pitcher of a baseball nine, and Governor
ol Brooklyn.—.Vrr 18$'?wn Herald,

The Übiquitous Thistle,

quitous than the common thistle. In
paradise, it is true, if we may trust John 1
Milton apd the Sunday school books—

I there were no thorns or thistles: the cre
-1 ation and introduction of the noxious
tribe upon this once nnocent and thorn?
i less earth being a direct consequence of
the fall of man and astern retribution for
‘| Adam’s delinquency. But since then
the thistle has manag 'd so to diffuse it
self over the habitable globe that there
hardiy now remains a spot on earth
without its own local representative of
that cver-intrusive and conquering gen- ,
i us. Wherever civilised man goes, there
the thistle accompanies him as a matter
j of course in hjs various wandering-?? It :

Close up to the arctic circ.ie you find it

prickly wings. Under an equatorial sky
you may observe it accommodating it
| self most complacently with a sardonic
smile to tropical existence, and
with the prickly cactuses and the thorny
acacias, to the manner born, for its fait
share of the dry and arid uplands, liven '
' nettles are nowhere in competition with I
it; in spite of its valuable and irritatirfg
sting, the nettle has not the plasticity
and adaptability of .constitution that
mark the stout and sturdy thistle tribe.

A Flue Family of Daughters.* " ,
A gentleman travelling through the
mountainous and thinly settled-districts '
I of North Carolina was overtaken by a
' storm. As he was on horseback, and ■
I therefore quite unprotected, lie beheld
with delight a log cabin in the distance, !
I and speedily betook himself thither.

; Southern hospitality, and he soon found
I himself seated at the dinner-table beside
j “the old ’ooman,” as his host designa-
I ted his wife, while one by one a seem
ingly endless file of daughters entered I
I the room. Turning to 'the farmer, he ;
' mildly observed: “You have a fine

In the village of Meyriu (canton ot i
: Geneva) Switzerland, some disused |
wells, it is said, have been hermetically
scaled to serve as barometers to the
people. An orifice about an inch in di- i
ameter is made in the cover of the well,
by which the internal air is put in com- '
munication with the external. When
the air pressure outside diminishes on
the approach of a storm, the air in the ,
well escapes and blows a whistle in con- 1
nectiou with the orifice, and in this way
notice of a storm’s approach is given to i
the inhabitants. If, on the contrary,
the pressure increases, a different sound
• is produced by the cbtry of the air into
the well, ami the probability of fine ;
j weather is announced.— Scientific Ameri

I saw the other day, says a writer in
the Washington Herald, two of the most
curious and interesting relics of the
; greatest tragedy in American history.
They are the pistol with which .John
Wilkes Booth shot President Lincoln
ami the dagger he held in his hand when
\ he leaped from the box to the stage of
the theatre, crying "Sic.semper tyrannic.’’
These relics are preserved in a bureau of
one of the great departments Os the gov
ernment, and with them is the bullet
that struck Mr. Lincoln down. The pis
tol is the most interesting of the lot. It
is one of the kind known as the derrin
ger, made in Philadelphia, which was
very famous all through the South ami
Southwest thirty years ago. The one
in question is of beautiful workmanship.
Ils barrel is only two inches in length,
and the bullet weighs about a quarter of
an ounce. 'Pho entire length of the
weapon is but four inches. Its mount
ing is of silver, and the lock is one of
the finest and most perfect pieces of
1 have ever seen, even in
•these weapons, which are very expensive,
ami elaborate. The bullet is much bat
i tered, and was evidently driven into the
muzzle (for the pistol i.s a muzzle-loader)
by the use of a mallet and iron loading
rod. Considering the heavy charge of
j powder under the bullet before it was
fired, the latter must have been only half i
an inch from the muzzle, and could cast- t
ly have been touched with one’s little *
I finger inserted Mito the barrel. The I
i marks of the rifling in the barrel are
clearly visible on the bullet, which was ;
very much flattened from striking the j
skull. Altogether, a more interesting I
and ghastly curio I have never seen, i
While handling the pistol I looked al

The Famous Eureka Springs.
The Eureka Spring are hidden t
among the Ozark mountains, in the
northwestern corner of Arkansas. A
writer for the Boston 'Trawler says: At
Eureka it was my good fortune to meet
Col. Bondi not, whose father was an
Indian chief of the Cherokees, and in !
conversation with him he related the in
cident that led to the discovery of the
springs. For a long time their virtues
had been known to the Indians, but
they kept the knowledge a profound
secret. It was left for the Yankee
mind to discover and appropriate their
commercial value. An Eastern man
afflicted with sore eyes visited the land
of the Cherokees, and one day chanced
to bathe his eyes in the cooling water of
a spring. It seemed to give him relief,
and for several days the process was re
peated.’ He found after a few weeks of
the treatment that his eyes were com
pletely cured. Then followed the Yan
kee acuteness. He bottled up the spring
water and sold it to the whites for miles
around. His eye-water became famous,
and he realized quite a sum from its dis
posal. But finally his secret wai dis
covered, and the springs became com
mon property. The afflicted of all kinds
flocked there, and since that time there
has been a continuous influx of health

eyes, according to the Chicago Tribune:
“A young widow in Waukesha, whose
busband had been dea l for a month, and
whom she had always supposed to be
free from small vices, was overhauling
his clothes the other day. She found a
large plug of tobacco in a coat pocket.
“Oh, George! George!” she exclaimed
despairingly, “you and I will never meet
in the good world!” In another pocket
she found a life insurance policy for $5,-
000, of which she had before known
' nothing, and she burst forth exultantly:
