Surgery f>r Piano Players.
“Surgery for piano-forte players,’’ as
recommended by one of the leading
piano-forte teachers of this city, and
now being rushed at in San Francisco to
a degree that will at least make this an
interesting spot for the rest of the mu
sical world to watch, in seeing how such
a large average of the venturesome come
out. The clever physician, with his
knife made expressly for the purpose,
and his cocaine, admits he knows little
about piano-forte playing, but is told
that the results of the operation are sat
isfactory. There then follows something
about liability to “loss of grip,” etc.
During the halcyon era of piano art,
when Liszt was electrifying Europe, and
Mendelssohn and Chopin vying with
each other in the production of composi
tions embodying the utmost artistic per
fection; and when gigantic Beethoven
was astonishing Vienna with a succession
of his sonatas—why was there no kniv
ing then? Surgeons were skilful fifty
years ago, and knew as much of the
mechanism of the hand as to-day. There
were enthusiasts in those days who
would have gone to the bottom of this
method .and as readily yielded them elves
up to a trial of it, and yet we do not
read of any ham-strung artists corning to
the front. Yes, there was one who tried
a royal road to perlcction. Poor Robert
Schumann essayed some expediting
method on his third finger, and ran him
self hopelessly and disastrously out of
the field of executants. He has stood as
a warning monument from those days as
to mechanical contrivances and ail sorts
of extraneous dodges, and it would be
well for every intending victim to the
knife method to first read through his
“Advice to Young Musicians.”— San
180 Whales Ku a Ashore.
As the packet Ospray of Westray, in
the Orkney Islands, was returning to
that place from the Kirkwall Lammas
market, and passing through the West
ray Firth, the crew descried a large
shoal ol whales disporting thcmse’ves in
the eddy of the firth. The boat
shortened sail, and some of the passen
gers took the small boat, and both boats
tried to keep them in toward the land.
Large numbers of boats came off from
the shore. At .a whale hunt the first
boat come to is taken hold of,despite the
ownership, launched and manned, and
every useful weapon is instantly se
cured, such as scythes, knives, spears,
&c. The shoal is cautiously approached
and surrounded, when the crews, by loud
noises drive the whales ashore. A boat
containing some English tourists, who
had been out seal shooting, came on the
scene, and with their guns wounded
some of the monsters, who ran straight
ashore, the whole shoal following. At
this junction the noise of the dying
whales gives a -trangc impression to the
scene. Ropes were produced, and the
monsters, all nearly or over twenty feet,
were dragged abovfi high water mark.
The number found to be landed was
130.— London Standard.
Canines of High Degree.
Dogs of many sorts one sees in New
port, and some very beautiful ones.
Splendid great St. Bernards of tawny
yellow; fat, low-bodied Daschhounds
(or turnspit dogs); ugly bow-legged bull
dogs, etc., meet the eye, and some pet
dogs, but not so many as of old. One
curious little dog looks like' an enlarged
and very fat bat. He has pointed ears,
and all the skin you can sec under his
blanket through his thin black hair has
a smooth, unpleasant look, which is said
to come from his being oiled every morn
ing like a prize-fighter. This dog is the
child—or pup—of luxury, and belongs
to a rich lady of Newport. At one of
the florists’ stores on the avenue is a tiny
Scotch terrier, no larger than a kitten;
but like other small creatures, he is very
pugnacious hence is fastened to a large
chain, at the end of which one faintly
perceives this dinunutive but fierce beast,
whose bark is hardly louder than that of
a mosquito. A man driving in an open
wagon on Thames streef was seen a few j
days since with throe Scotch terriers sit- [
ting on the seat him, and not a >
soul else in the vehicle.— Newport Letter. 1
A Maryland Tradition
now A MINISTER’S WIFE CAME BACK FROM
Whitemarsh Church is located in Tal
bot county, near a cross road village,
known by the singular and noteuphoni
jus title of The Hole in the Wall. The
village name is said to date from the
indent days when Oxford was a port of
entry. The smuggling sailors would
bring their crooked liquors from the
port at night, and deposit the bottles of
cognac and Hollands in a hole in the
wall of the trader’s shop, returning in
the morning for their payment. White
marsh Church dates back beyond 1680,
and hero ministered Commissary Bray,
one of the originators of the famous so
ciety for the Propagation of the Gospel,
through the agency of which the Church
of England has spread its inilnence into
every stronghold of heathenism: A
building used by him as a female semi
nary yet. stands about a mile away to
ward Oxford. In some unexplained
way it long since, with the land on
which it (stands, become alienated from
the church, and is now the county alms
house. In 1711 the Rev. Mr. Mayna
il ier was rector, rcsi ing at the parson
age on a farm a short distance from the
church, and a singular story is told of
his family. The tradition is that his
wife died after a brief illness and was
buried with rather unusual haste. The
worthy man, overcome by grief, retired
early, but was roused from his slumbers
shortly before midnight by a knocking
at the front door. Imagine his feelings
wien, on opening it, there stood his
buried wife, faint, and terrified, but
alive and in the flesh She had been
hastily coffined without the removal of
e valuable ring, and one of the attend
ants, aware of the fact, had exhumed
the body just after night fall for the pur
pose of robbing it But the ring clung
to tlie finger and an effort was made to
sever the joint; blood flowed, the corpse
groaned, moved and recovered con
seriousness The would-be robber of the
! dead fled in terror from the scene, and
| the lady, thus happily saved from the
; grave, made her way through the night
to the desolate Home from which she
bad been carried a few hours before.
She lived to tell the story for many
years afterward —Hnltimore American.
A Lucky Boy.
Johnny Fizz.letop, of Austin, has more
good luck than any other boy in Texas
in finding things; so the old man ap
pointed himself a committee of one to
“Where did you get that knife?”
asked the irate parent.
“I found it, pa.”
‘‘And where did you get that dime,
and the half dollar you had yesterday?”
“I found them, too, pa.”
“Lean o ermy knee. Whack! whack!
whack! Now, sir, what have you got
to ay, you young scoundrel?" exclaimed
the excited parent.
“Please pa," sobbed the culprit,
“please lock up that—strap—or—
you’ll—think I—found it too boo
Johnny hasn’t had any luck finding
things since he sat down on that strap,
and he is glad of it.
