The Feat* n Showmnn In England Ha.

A showman in England, Clarke by

number of cuts to perform riwnarkable
tricks. One of those is to walk over u

the fluttering little bodies of birds and
mice and harming none of them. An

Mr. Clarke repeats what is well
known—that the cat is the most difficult
of animals to train to the performance
of tricks. He Ims trained bears, lions,
leopards, tigers mid other wild animals
and finds them teachable and submissive
when compared with cats. The cat in

her performances may be depended on.

The difficulty in the cat’s training

but in her disposition. She is as clever
in her tricks, if she likes to do them, as
a dog, but she does not wish to subor

It Make, a More Profitable Crop and Rave,
The next essential thing after yon
have got your fruit started, says Mr. J.
*l. Hale, the Connecticut fruit grower,
is a judicious thinning of it. I believe
the thinning of apples should begin
when they first begin to bear. A well
planted and well fed tree will begin to
boar eurly. Only let it bear a little. Al
low some of the strength to go into the
development of the frnit buds for next
year. Next year thin pretty closely; then
by and by you will build up an orchard
that will have no off years in it. There
isn’t an off year. It is because tho ap
ples are in the hands of an off man.
Thinning constantly would bring it into
It is seed growing that exhausts the
vitality. There are no more seeds in a
large fruit than in a small one, and a
large one doesn’t take any more vitality
out of a tree. If a Keiffer pear tree has
on it a thousand pears, and you take off
500 of them, tho balance will weigh as
much us the whole of them and bring
more money, weakening the tree only
half as much. Our rule for thin
ning peaches is not to leave one within
four inches of another. This covers the
ground with green frnit and looks like
destruction, but at the end of the season
there are more bushels than there would
Thin by hand. Put stepladders under
the trees and put boys on them whoso
bump of destructiveness is large, and
tell thorn to go ahoad. We begin when
tho peaches are three-quarters of an inch
in diameter, and take everything that is
enreulio stiuig and diseased. These we
cart away and burn. Tho rest that are
taken off are dropped on tho ground and
loft there. In future our three or four
year old peach trees shall not bear over
250 poaches; onr four or five year old
trees not over 300, and full grown trees
not over 500. That means six inches
apart; 500 peaches on a tree will make
six to eight baskets of fancy fruit. Throe
thousand peaches to a tree won't make
more, nor sell for more money, and the
trees are ruined.—Hartford Times.
AN EXPRESSMAN’S HARVEST.
Qnccr Things the Northern Roldlerw Sent
Home From the War.
The greatest harvest reaped by tho
principal express companies was during
the late war of tho rebellion, when ev
erything was sent and received by ex
press, no matter what the cost The
writer of this sketch had a varied and
somewhat tedious experience in the busi
ness during that protracted disturbance,
and was witness to many scenes of som
ber and many of a humorous character.
These were mostly seen in tho returns
from the seat of war just after a battle.
Sometimes after a victorious Federal
action, or tho capture of a rebel town,
the officers, as well as the men, made a
practice of sending home trophies they
hud captured. These often wore house
hold effects of comparatively little val
ue, and oust the recipients at home a
large tex for express transportation.
Sometimes live stock was sent, consist
ing largely of dogs and donkeys, some
times a singing bird, or fowls of pecul
iar breed. On one occasion a stalwart
negro follow was received at the Boston
office, sunt by an officer who fonnd he
oould do nothing else with him and
thought he might be of use on his farm
at home. The grinning darky had a card
firmly fastened about his neck, giving
tho address where to land him, with this
direction: “Feed and grub this nigger
all that ho needs. ”
It was sad, however, to see the
rough boxes often piled up outside tho
office containing the remains of the
boys in blue sent home for bnrial among
the scenes which they had left a short
time before for the southern battlefields.
These relics often proved a burdensome
cost to their bereaved families at home.
We were always glnd to forward remit
tances of money to the oftentimes dis
tressed ones at home. The business
transacted by some of tho big expresses,
Adams & Co., for instance, was of enor
mous proportions, and added largely to
the wealth of many proprietors, the ter
rible war proving a godsend to them at

How Boy Crtmlnut. Are Punished by
Thrashing In England.
Boys who are found gnilty of minor
offenses in England are sentenced by the
judges to a sound thrashing at the hands
of Here is a description
of it taken from an English paper:
The birch is a very different instru
ment of torture from the cat. Tho for
mer is made up of a number of
birch twigs, while the latter is reaWfa
whip with nine knotted small cord
lashes When tho cat is administered,
the prison doctor mnst be present, but
when the birch is put on it is only nec
essary for tho inspector or superintend
ent of police to witness it, although the
parents or near relatives of a boy sen
tenced to be flogged may be present at
the castigation. When a dose of the cat
is dealt out, none but those connected
with the prison are allowed to bo there.
Like the cat the birch may be made a
very severe punishment or a compara
tively trivial affair, not merely accord
ing to the number of strokes, bnt from
thc’instructicps given the constable who
is.told off to do the flogging. I have
seen a boy after six strokes resemble
nothing so much as a pieee of raw beef
and bleeding fearfully, while 1 have
also seen a boy after six strokes merely
a trifle red.
Borne policemen dread tho duty of
flogging, nnd after the first two strokes
get a sharp order to “hit tho boy and
not play with him. ” Other constables
delight in the work and boast of their
ability to draw blood at the first stroke.
Various modes of administering the
punishment obtain in different parts of
the country. In some places boys arc
placed face downward on a form. One
constable holds his arms and head firm
ly, while another does him the same
service with his legs, and the third ad
ministers the punishment.
In other prisons the culprit is placed
on a constable's back, and as he sits
there with his arms around tho officer's
beck, awaiting “theevent,” his attitude
strikes a spectator more as one of affec
tion than discomfort. Another way is to
compel a boy to lean over a chair as if
he wore praying, then run a strap right
around his legs and the legs of the chair,
a constable holding his head and arms
from the other side.—Brooklyn Eagle.
THROUGH OTHER EYES.
Life at Harvard College From the English
Point of View.
The student life of America is emi
nently an American institution. It has
grown up in an odd compound of native
manners and foreign influences, which
form an essentially new product. It is a
good deal more complex in its organiza
tion than anything known on tho Isis or
the Cam. There i,s more details in it,
and consequently less breadth of effect.
The university organizations aro in
numerable. Men aro banded together in
college clubs for every conceivable pur
pose of study or amusement. Their bond
of union may bo (heir attempt to talk
Greek with tho accent of modern Attica,
or it may te only a passion for domi
nos, but it has all the notes of institu
tion in its machinery of committee,
president pndjiecretarics. Great variety
of life comes from the differences in for
tune among the students, but of late
years there has been a laudable attempt
on the part of the university and college
authorities to introduce a more uniform
simplicity. Plain living is the cry, and
with this secured it is believed the
thinking will take caro of itself.
At Harvard some time ago Professor
Palmer tried to discover how far tho liv
ing had departed from the philosophic
standard by asking some hundreds of
students for a return of their annual ex
penditure. Tho answers showed that
Harvard at least had nothing to be
ashamed of. Many of the students, less
than a fourth, spent less than £l3O a
year: some less than £IOO. Tho average
probably did not amount to the £2OO a
year which the professor regards as an
entirely adequate allowance for both
ease and renflement. Yale is less costly
than Harvard, so these institutions at
least are not open to the reproach that
they hove introduced the millionaire in
to American university life.—London
Animal. Understand Hygiene.
Enough is now known of the nature
of animal materia medics to excite in
terest aud curiosity. There is abundant
evidence that many species know and
constantly make use of simple remedies
for definite disorders, and at the same
time observe rules of health to which
only the highest civilization or tho sanc
tion of religious proscription compels
man to conform.
It has been noted that the general
condition of animal health, especially
in the case of the herbivorous creatures,
corresponds not inexactly with that of
such tribes as the Somalis, men feeding
almost solely on grain, milk, dates and
water, living constantly in the open air,
moderate in all things and cleanly, be
cause their religion enjoins constant
ablutions. Like them, wild animals
have no induced diseases. The greater
number do not eat to excess. They take
regular exercise in seeking their food
and drink only at fixed hours. .Many of
them secure change of climate, one of
the greatest factors in health, by mi

Howell Ordinance is Adopted But the Bar
Men Ssy They Will Continue to
Close at Ten O’Ulock
Unless Mayor King vetoes the ordi
nance passed at yesterday’s meeting of
the gensral council the saloon men with
in the fire limits can keep open bars un
til 12 o'clock at night.
That is those saloon keepers who wish
to deposit $63 a month for hiring extra
police can keep open but not otherwise.
This the bar men refuse to do.
At a meeting of the council just pre
vious to yesterday’s meeting Mr, Howell
introduced tho same ordinance and it
was voted down. The members of the
police board were however pleased with
the idea as a larger police force is a ne
cessity and succeeded in having a spec
ial meeting called for yesterday.
After motions almost jjjiruberless and
a lengthy and somewhat heated discus
sion, the Howell ordinance was adopted
with several amendments, by the follow
Aye—Howell, Harrelson, Colvin, Tol
bert. Ilirsch, Camp, Dav, Campbel), In
man, Welch of the fifth, and Sims—ll.
Nays—Mayson, Welch of the second,

As the law now stands any saloon
keeper who wishes to keep open doors
until 12 o’clock must pay into the city
treasury enough money to cover the full
term ot the exposition at the rate of $65
a month, the hire of a policeman; aud
even then he cannot keep open unless
enough money is put in to employ fifty
officers. Another amendment provides
that an officer shall be stationed at each

for his approval, but he has not yet sig
nified whether or not he will sign it.

hibit ever made.
One of the most attractive exhibits,
in the Machinery building, and of the
most instructive to the lovers of the
beautiful, is Anderson Bros’. Silk
Loom. These gentlemen, whose home
is in Paterson, N. J., are the patentees
and proprietors. Their superiority
over all competitors, is evidenced by
the premiums they have won. Messrs.
Anderson have presented the claims of
these Looms at all of the Amercan ex
positions, for the past fifteen years,
and at Antwerp, Belgium, and have in
every instance, been awarded the high
est premium. They are in full opera
tiontoday and will continue the manu
facture of silk souveneirs during the
A NEW AND WONDERFUL INVENTION.
The Dry Kalsomine and Fresco Paint
Works of 25 and 27 John street, Brook
lyn, N. Y., makes a very handsome and
attractive display demonstrative of the
new and wonderful invention, Johnson’s
Fibrous Distemper Paint, which will
prove a formidable competitor in the
world of colors, The beauty of tbe Fi
brous over other paints is very decided
and commends itself to tbe discrimina
ting eye at a glance. The booth is orna
mented with panels showing the Fibrous
Paint worked in relief accomplishing the
greatly desired textile effects and of an
almost indestructible material. The
panels present a variety of different
styles to which this Fibrous Paint is
adapted, notably the rococo, renaissance,
colonial, empire and modern styles, not
to mention the solid body of pleasant
colors and tints interspersed therewith.
The toughness, easy preparation and low
price of this paint will commend it to all
who delight in artistic effects in decora
tion. Mr. John J. Hasselman, a most
affable gentleman, is the inventor, and
invites the public to call and examine
into tbe merits of this latest and best
decorating material. The exhibit is in
the east wing, section A, of Manufactur
ers and Liberal Aris building:
TJIE GENUINE GEORGIA BARBECUE
and jolly Jack Callaway are at the expo
sition “in great shape” and exquisite per
fection. Georgia is famed for its barbe
cue feasts aud the work of no man has
conspired as much toward making it fa
mous as has that of Sheriff Callaway. He
is an artistic genius around the pits and
the man who fails of enjoyment at the
Georgia Barbecue .would complain if
sumptuously dined in heaven. Bruns
wick Stew with needful trimmings, bar
becued lamb, shoat, and beef, vegeta
bles, bread, coffee and butter milk will
be served, cooked “to the queen’s taste”
and is yours for a half dollar. Every
body who has been initiated once, craves
for another experience, while those who
have never “rubbed up against” a Geor
gia Barbecue will avail themselves of
this golden opportunity. This Mecca for
the hungry millions is located near tbe
Manufacturers and Liberal Arts Build

ARKANSAS AT THE EXPOSITION.
There is no exhibit in Agricultural
hall that can cope with the Arkansas
exhibit in the fruit display.
Between 600 and 800 plates of deli
cious, large and luscious grapes, apples,
pears,‘peaches, quinces, etc., are shown
which cannot be surpassed on the
Mr. W. G. Vinctnbelles has charge
of the exhibit and there is none better
in the land to arrange as artistically
as he has done this picture of the Re
sources of his state.
Mr. Vincinbeller has labored untir
ingly for many years to show what the
advantages of Arkansas are, and as a
synonym of his success tbe exhibit in
tiie centre of the building speaks for
AN IDEAL EXHIBIT.
One es tbe most attractive exhibits
on the grounds is that of L. E. Water
man Co., of 157 Broadway, New York,
manufacturers of Waterman’s Ideal
Fountain Pens. A reliable fountain
pen is now regarded everywhere by
progressive people as the most practi
cal and convenient writing instrument
—a grateful relief from the drudgery of
“dip” pens and untidy inkstands. The
seeker after the “best” will find Wa
terman's the “ideal” in fact as well as
in name. In the Waterman the philo
sophical feature, "the split,” which
has not been improved upon since the
days of tbe Egyptian scribes, is re
tained. and the gold pens—which
alone are used—are the very best that
money can buy or human ingenuity
can conceive. The “bolder” is made of
bard rubber in the most convenient
shape, while the "feed” conducts tbe
ink from the reservoir to the pen point
with absolute uniformity and certain
ty. Recent United States patent office
decisions render all but two fountain
pens unsaleable, of which the Water
man is easily tbe best, hnd its reputa-
tion extends over two continents. This
very creditable display is located in the
west wing of the Manufacturers and
I iberal Arts Building and is presided
over by Mr. F. D. Waterman, than
whom a more genial gentleman can
not be found. The public,and especially
the stationery trade, is invited to call
and examine into the merits ot this fa

A K. HAWKES.
Possibly there ’* no one in thia country
wl has gained the reputation and fame
in rhe manufacrare of spectacles, and as
a practical optician, as Mr. Hawkes. His
inventions and improvements in this line
have given him a name that extends over
the -utire country. Millions of people
arc familiar with the name Hawkes. He
began in a very small way 28 years ago,
until now 30,000,000 of people are fami
liar with his work. There are eight
thousand cities from New York to Cali
fornia, where his glasses can be bought
but are never peddled. His headquart

A TRIO OF WONDERS.
The Little World, Battle of Atlanta
and Magic city are three ingenious and
wonderful productions of an Atlanta
man. Mr. J. W. Vaughn. The mechani
cal knowledge and ability displayed by
the builder of these wonders is as m.ir-
I velotis as the wonders themselves and
they must be seen to be i; preciated.
Imagination can conceive many things
bin rhe mind which can form even a
feeble idea of the beauties which clus
ter around either of these wonderful
contrivances must be vivid beyond na
TIIE LITTLE WORLD
is composed of a group of mechanical
figures representing almost every con- •
ceivable occupation in life and all in
action. A ininaturetrain, electric car,
steam boat, a man and a mule, a brass
band and a blacksmith, a woman and a
windmill, and a thousand and one oth
er figures are operated with life-like
! precision and regularity. The devices
j are too numerous to mention while
their movements are realistic in the
extreme. The entire mechanical de
vice is most intricate and will prove ot
interest to the young and old alike.
This attraction will prove one of the
most popular on the grounds.
THE BATTLE' OF ATLANTA
is a most unique idea which depicts
with minature figures one of the
fiercest contests of t he war bet ween the
states. This realistic production will
cause many to revert to the dark and
bloo ly scenes enacted dn that memor
able July day while the younger gen
eration will witness the struggle as it
was fought. The cannon and guns act
in reality, the soldiers charge and re
treat and days and doings of the “long
ago” are re-enacted. The Battle of At
lanta must be seen to be appreciated.
It is located next to the Little World.
THE MAGIC CITY
Is a city in ininature complete in all
of its appointments and filled with an
eager, energetic people. This attrac
tion ad joins the Battle of Atlanta and
is worthy the liberal patronage it is
sure to receive. Music will be furnish
ed at all of these attractions by a plana
invented by Mr. Vaughn.
THE ILLINOIS CANNING CO.
Something New in Canned Beani, Their
exhibit In Agricultural Building.
Manager W. B. Cheatham of the
above concern is very proud of his most
artl’ti? and well arranged display of
canned goods. French red kidney
bc-.uis as prepared by the Illinois Can
ning company are a delicious and most
toothsome morsel and stand pre-emi
nently at the head of the list in the
way of canned products.
The sale of this bean ail over ths
South has been very large and is stead
ily growing. Do not fail to look this
i exhibit up and you will be served with
J a dish of this food that you may judge.
To Sapplant Tin Can.,
Cans made of paper pulp are being in
troduced to take the place of tin cans
for containing all kinds of preserved
products, says the New York Snn. The
occasional cases of poisoning from can
ned goods are due to the contents be
coming tainted through the cans not be
ing airtight. Many millions of tin cans
j are used annually by canned goods fac
tories in this country, and such cases of
injury from tainted goods are compara
tively rare, but because it is possible,
through slight defects in the solder or
minute breaks in the cans, for such dan
ger to result, the canners have been
looking for a satisfactory substitute for
tin. It is believed that this has at last
teen found in the paper pulp cans. They
are oilproof as well as waterproof, will
not expand or contract, and will stand
as much rough usage in shipment as tin
cans, and perhaps more.
The Wheel a Test of Character,
j Certain disgruntled philosophers have
I contended that the woman you see is
seldom the woman you think you see.

have to tell the truth about themselves.
One can distinguish at a glance the dar
. ing, willful beauty from the timid, ten

moment to the plane of a boy, whose
good looks or lack of them, health, vig
or of mind and body are apparent. I
will even go so far as to advise a man
not to get married until he has seen tha
object of his choice disport herself upon
a bicycle.—Philadelphia Times.
