Madelo.v Lemoixe; a novel, Cy Sirs. Leith
Adams. J, B. Lippincott Company, Philadel
phia; price 25c.
This is one of the Lippincott series of se
lect novels, and a rather interesting one it
is. It fills up an idle hour admirably.
Esther ; a Book for Girls. By Rosa Nouchette
Carey: illustrated. J. B, Lippincott Compa
ny, Philadelphia, publishers; cloth $1 25.
This is a very pretty story and can hardly
fail to be popular with girls, for whom it is
intended. It is not a story full of exciting
and blood-curdling incidents, but it is inter
esting, having a good plot, a lively conver
sational style and a purpose which gradually
reveals itself as the story progresses.
Federal Taxes and State Expenses. By Wil
liam H. Jones, G. P. Putnam & Sons, New
The author in this volume presents some
interesting thoughts on the decay of
separate State power of excise under the
Federal constitution, and the compensation
therein provided for it; and the relation of
the general civil administration under
separate State authority, to the general
welfare of the United States under the
Federal autonomy. He says he was “in
fluenced in the beginning of his work by the
high rate of State taxes on property valua
tions for the State and local expenses of the
civil administration,” and that “his efforts
were long directed to the vain attempt to
secure a remedy for the difficulty by har
monizing State and Federal co-operation
over the subjects of State taxation.”
Ishmael; or, In the Depthß. By Mrs. Emma D.
E. N. Southworth, with portrait of Sirs. South
worth. T. B. Peterson & Bros., Philadelphia,
publishers. Bound in Morocco cloth, black
and gold. Price $1 50.
This is Mrs. Southworth’s last.and by many
considered her best work. The life of
“Ishmael Worth,” as here portrayed, is a
guiding star to youth, to show them that
there is no depth of human misery from
which they may not, by virtue, energy and
perseverence, rise to earthly honors, as well
as eternal glory. " ‘ln the depths’ he was
born indeed—in the very depths of poverty,
misery and humiliation. But through his
aspirations and endeavors, he raised him
self to the summit of fame. He was good
as well as great. His goodness won the love
of all who knew him intimately. His greats
ness gained the homage of the world. His
identity will be recognized by those who
were familiar with his early personal his
tory; but for obvious reasons, says the
author, his real name must be veiled under
a fictitious one in the volume.”

“Boys’ Home Library.’’ Paper, 12mo. Price,
25c. Published by A. L. Burt, 162 William
street, New York.
To write successful stories for the young

has succeeded in doing it as well perhaps as
any living author Two generations of boys

popularity is due to the thoroughly healthy
and sound moral tone of his stories without
lessening their exciting and adventurous in

great variety of themes. Mr. Richard

with a vigorous and trained hand, laying
stress on the poet’s inner life and the growth
of his genius. Mr. H. W. Conn sets forth
clearlv the different scientific theories re

critically their valne and their defects.
Prof. Alexander Johnston does not fall be

himself in his previous historical writing:
his admirable article on “The First Century

States, is a model of clearness and compre

Senator Colquitt, of Georgia, under the
title of “Some Plain Words on Prohibi

are other interesting and valuable articles.

well up to the standard which this maga

THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1887.
A TARANTULA TRAINER.
Mr. Schandley Hopes to Create a Boom
for the Big Spiders.
From the San Franciico Alta.
“That's Tom Schandley, the tarantula
trainer,” said Charley Rhodes. As he spoke
he jiointed to a short, stout man, dressed in
a light suit, who stood at the other end of
the counter. “He makes a specially of train
ing tarantulas and spiders. He was once al
most crazy on snakes, but now he appears to
be wrapped up in the education of spiders.
Talk to him. He can probably tell you au
The reporter acted upon the sug
gestion. An introduction to Mr. Schandley
"Yes’’’said Mr. Schandley. “I must ad
mit that I’m what seme people call me—a
crank on spiders. I like the creatures, and
never tire of studying habits. Solomon of
old advised the lazy man to study the ways
and manners of the out. I don’t care to
pose as the rival of Solomon as a dispenser
of wisdom, but I will maintain that the
spider can tench a bettor idea of industry
than any unt that ever lived. I've watched
the creatures. An ant runs about ail day
and puts hi all its time hunting for the holo
where it lives. In contrast to the actions of
the ant, the spider spins a web and at least
makes a showing as to what it can do. It'
you will come to my room I’ll show you
some of my pets.”
The reporter willingly accepted the in
vitation, and before on hour had expired he
did not regret the time which he devoted to
his new acquaintance.
“Here’s my favorite spider,” said Mr.
Schandley. as he placed a cigar box with
holes bored in the top on the table. He threw
back the lid and disposed the occupant of
the box, which was an ugly hairy tarantula.
As the light was thrown upon the tarantula
it began to move its joints and cavort
around the box in a manner that would have
caused a timid woman to go into hysterics.
The reporter drew back as the savage look
ing creature displayed a tendency to creep
out of the box.
“Oh, don’t be afraid of Tim. I call him
Tim O’Brien, you know,” said Mr. Schand
ley; “it’s onlv a little nickname. He can’t
hurt you. I've drawn the poison from his
nippers. Come, Tim,” and to the horror of
the reporter Mr. Schandley reached his hand
out and allowed the tarantula to crawl upon
it. A tarantula is not a very handsome or
pleasing specimen of an animal under any
circumstances, but it causes a shudder to
come over the ordinary man to see one drag
ging its hairy form' over the hand of a
huinau being. Mr. Schandley allowed
the creature to crawl around his
Ungers and it worked its way up his coat
sleeve. It stopped when near Mr. Sehand
ley’s elbow and cocked its eyes up at the re
porter in what the latter considered a wick
“Go back to your box, Tim,” commanded
Tim’s master in liars!) tones, and to the re
porter's surprise the animal quickly turned,
crawled over the owner’s hand and dropped
into the cigar box.
“I have him well trained, you see,”
laughed, the owner of the tarantulas as he
closed the lid on Mr. O’Brien, “but I’ll show
you another stiecinieu. Here is Jim Blaine,”
Mr. Schandley opened another box
and exposed to view a reddish-brown
tarantula. It was a live customer, and as
soon as the lid of the box was thrown back
it fairly leaped out upon the table. The re
porter sprang back. “Don’t be alarmed,”
said the trainer, and he seized “Jim Blaine”
around the body.
“Jim is a Texas boy, and the dandy of his
kind. Just feel him.” The reporter requested
to be excused from feeling “Jim.” The only
failing that Jim basis that he drinks whisky
and is a confirmed toper.”
“Yes, sirree. I’ll prove it.” Mr. Schand
ley laid Jim back in the box and closed the
lid. He took a bottle of whisky from a
stand and saturated a small sponge with the
alcoholic stimulant. “I’ll put this in with
Jim and let him wrestle with it,” said Mr.
Schandley. And he dropped the sponge in
“A queer business I’m in?” said the taran
tulatminer, in reply to a question thrown
out by the reporter. “Yes, it is. Money in
it? Yes. I was a snake hunter in Bucks
county, Pa., about fifteen years ago. I
made considerable money out of it, but the
rattlers got kind of scarce, and I followed
Horace Greeley's advice and came West.
When I was in Texas I got an idea that
tarantulas could be trained, and I started
in. I was successful, and soon had about
fifty of the ugliest devils of tarantulas, that
would do almost anything. Of course I
drew their poison, so tnsre was no dnnger
to be incurred in handling them. 1 took
’em to New York and sold ’em. Who bought
them? Well, the greater part of them were
purchased by saloon keepers, who wanted
to attract custom bv exhibiting them on
their bars. Some of them I sold to ladies
who had a bent of mind something like
Bernhardt. They made pets of them. I
tell you that there are at least a dozen Mur
ray Hill belles who keep their pet tarantulas
with their pet lapdogs now. I got very good
prices from them for a tarantula that was
well trained and would not betray
any viciousness. Borne of the brutes can
never be trained. They will bite. No; I
don’t exactly make a living out of selling
tarantulas, but I am always willing to ac
commodate any one who wants one of the
animals. I’ve got about eighteen taran
tulas now. I hope to inaugurate a craze
among the ladies for the creatures. If I
can get up a. boom you’ll see wotnou prome
nading on Market street on Saturdays with
their pet tarantulas on their arms. A small
blue ribbon around their waist is what
keeps them in place. The novelty of the
thing is taking. By the way, let u > look at
Jim Blaine.” Mr. Schandley opened the
Blaine box. The sponge and Mr. Blaine
were en rapport. Mr. Blaine was helpless.
The sponge was dry. He haul sucked every
drop of liquor from it. Mr. Schandley
turned Mr. Blaine out upon the table, but he
was like a chunk of wood. Only a spas
modic quivering of his jointed legs showed
that he was alive.
“Ah, he’s royally drunk,” said Mr.
Schandley, laughing. “He’d get this way
every day if I’il lot him. But it’s only about
once a week that I give lam liquor. I al
ways think that it must have been an ani
mal like Jii'.i that gave rise to the name
tarantula juice. He is the only spider that
I ever hail, out of many, that I could get
to touch liquor. How long does it take to
t rain a tarantula? Oh, not over two weeks.
You'd b surprised to know what a compre
hension the ugly brutes have. They can be
trained easier than a dog.”
Mr. Schandley then snowed the reporter
eight other tarantulas that were under
going courses of training. They all seem
ed to recognize certain sounds which he
“Jim Blaine won’t be sober until morn
ing,” said Mr. Schandley, as the reporter
edged toward the door to escape three or
four tarantulas that were running around
loose. “If you know any one who wants a
pet tarantula just refer him to me. I’ll be
in town for several weeks.”
No Beer for Sale Anywhere, but You
May Buy Barley Mead and Water.
From the St. Louie Globe- Pemocrat.
Like most tourists who cross the plains of
Kansas, Mr. Reardon had an encounter with
the modern archangel known as prohibition.
Of course everybody knows there isn’t a
drop of beer or liquor sold in the Cyclone
State outside of the drug stores; at any rate,
everyliody knows that's the law. People
who never think of wetting their lijis with
lager or tempting their appetites with roil
eye, get very thirsty in going through
Kansas. The colored man in charge of the
buffet—if they Implicit to be riding in a
buffet car —shuts and locks the drawer in
which be keeps his gill and half-pint flasks
of fire-water, anil puts away his bottled
beer, and stoically returns a determined
‘‘No. sah," to every plea for either the poison
or the hili* promoter. The sable gi-utle
man proving lrojiervious to bribe or flattery
the tourist next tries the stations along the
“Anywhere here where a fellow can get a
drink f' ho asks.
“Yes, there's a spring np yander about
three miles," a native responded, with a
grin spreading through the rim of liquid to
bacco that surrounded his teeth.
“Oh, I don’t mean water. I mean beer—or
—o>' whisky; I don’t care which.”
“Don’t know what’t is. Guess wo hain’t
“You don’t know what beer is? Merciful
“No, sir; never saw it. This is Kansas.”
After several adventures of this kind some
tourists, more brilliant and daring than the
rest, will penetrate the jungles of the pro
hibitionists and come forth with a bottle,
or maybe half a dozen bottles of beer, lie
discovers the open sesame, and from that
hour forward there is a lager festival on
board the train. Often they buy out the
saloonist’s entire stock, and when the de
mand is heavv the price fluctuates quicker
and further than floes the price of wheat
in the most exciting days on ’Change. Mr.
Reardon’s experience is similar to nearly
everybody else’s. It was short and sweet.
Here it is:
“We got off at a place called Brookville,”
he said, “and went into a saloon at the depot.
It was a good looking country saloon, but
there were not any black bottles in sight—
only bottles of ginger ale and bott'es of bar
ley mead. I asked the barkeeper for a glass
of beer, as I saw others getting it.
“ ‘We have no beer, sir,’ was the quiek
answer that came from behind the bar, ‘but
here’s some good barley mead.’
. “ ‘Take it, it’s beer,’ somebody suggested,
and I asked. ‘How much a bottle? 1 ‘Twenty
five cents,’ the barkeeper replied. I took
two bottles, and do you know that was as
fine Milwaukee beer as I ever tasted any
where? The folks in the train soon got on
to it, and thev cleaned out the Brookville
saloonist of all his ‘barley mead. ’ He begin
by asking 25c. a bottle, but in a few secotn s
it went up to 30c. and then to 30c., and the
last of it sold at 40c. a bottle. I think the
mau sold eight or ten dozen bottles. A"
souvenirs of the affair, I removed the two
labels from one of my bottles. The large
label announces that the contents are a
’nutritious barlev mead for nursing mothers,
invalids, etc.’ The smaller label, which 1
took from the other side of the bottle tells
what the stuff is good for and gives the direc
tions for taking it.”
Mr. Reardon gave me the two labels, and
I forward them to you, as I think they will
lirovoko a wide smile from the people who
inve heard or read about the possibility of
getting beer or whisky in tne State of
Kansas. The smaller label is:
This Admirable Restorative and Health
Promptly Relieves Nervousness, Conquers
Dyspepsia, and is an Excellent Reeup
' erant of Weak Physical Energy.

Mr. S. P. Teasdel, one of the largest Mor
mon merchants here, related a like experi
enee which he had recontly in Kansas. He
wanted a glass of beer and asked somebody
at one of the stations where the lager might
be had. He received the usual reply—there
wasn’t any beer in the whole country. After
awhile, as he still stood on the platform, a
native rolled up to him and asked him if he
wanted a drink real bad. He said he did,
and the native pointed the wny to an under
ground saloon. “Ask for ginger ale,” was
his parting injunction. Mr. Teasdel went
down into a cellar and groped his way to
the bar. He asked the citizen behind the
counter for ginger ale, and that gentleman
coolly drew him a glass of keg beer. Mr.
Teasdel was thirsty and drauk the glass
“Let me have another glass of that beer,”
he skid to the barkeeper, as serenely as he
The barkeeper glanced at him in open in
“We have no beer, sir!” he replied.
“Then give me a glass of water," said Mr.
And forthwith the liar keeper with an
apologetic smile, took hold of his glass and
drew him another beer.

An elm ties and a pine tree
Grew by a castle wall;
The one was strong and full and broad.
The other straight aDd tall—
And the elm tree and the pine tree
Grew by the castle wall.
There came a shipmatj to the shore
And hewed the pine tree down;
There came a woodsman to the wood,
And felled the elm tree's crown.
There came two men who needed both
And marked anti hewed them down.
And now the pine tree sails the sea
A topmast straight and tall;
And now the elm t ree cradle stands
Where little children call;
And the elm tree and the pine tree
Have left the castle wall.
FACE HUMORS 7
Seven Years of Physical and Mental
Suffering Ended by Cuticura.
ABOUT seven yearn ago I had a humor break
out upon my face; it started in a small
blotch and looked like the sting of a tee. then It
spread and looked like a ringworm, and liecame
very painful. I at once went to one of the best
doctors in the city and he could do me uo good.
No less than twelve of the liest doctors have bad
a trial at my face and uli of them failed. I will
not give you a list of their names, but will say
that they were from Boston, New York and
slaine, also from England. France and Canada.
1 have Ijeen a hotel cook and steward for years.
In the summer I cook at watering i laces; that
Is why I have an opportunity of being among
good doctors. They could not cure my face,
and 1 had given up all hupes of ever being any
better. Last June 1 went to Moosehead Lake,
slaine. to cook for the season. My face was so
bad 1 did not like to be seen. At the lake I met
a gentleman from England. He. told me to use
your CrTicniA Remedies and they would cure
me at once. I did so. The result was in three
weeks the sores on my face were healed up. I
used it all the season. My face is all well and
no stairs to be seen. I have recommended it to
a number, and in every case it has cured them.
It would take a great deal of money to put me
buck where I was one year ago. providing I did
not know what your Cvticuhx would do. I
shall recommend It as lung as I live, and shall
ever remain, H. STEVENS

one of my girls, and found it to Is; just what it
is recommended to be. My daughter was all

and the lialr commenced to come
out. Now she is as smooth as ever
she was. and she has only takeu one box of Ct'Tl
cura, one cake of Cuticura Soap, and one bottle
of Cuticura Resolvent. I doctored with quite
