A cat four thousand years old is not
altogether a familiar object to English
men, and can scarcely bo regarded as an
ovory-day visitor to these- shores. Tho
arrival, therefore, of tons of such
cats In Liverpool is an incident that can
not but lay a heavy strain upon tho
llrltish capacity for experiencing amaze
monk Not tho least astonishing teaturo
of this unlquo event is that tho con
signment in question, described with
commercial crispness as "a parcel of
embalmed cats," consists exclusively of
fellno mummies, aptly, but accidental
ly, culled from a catacomb in Central
Egypt. Thcro aro no fower than 180,
000 of those swathed and spiced remains
in tho "parcel" that reached this coun
try a fow days ago, and they havo al
ready been sold for fertilizing purposes
to a Liverpool manuro merchant, tho
auctioneer who disposed of them using
ono of tho deceased cat's heads as a
hammer wherewith to knock down tho
According to a correspondent, it has
long been belioved in Egyptological cir
cles that a hugo cat cemetory was in ex
istence "somowhero about" on tho left
bank of tho Nile. Ono day last autumn
a fellah husbandman, while engaged in
the agricultural pursuit of digging at a
placo called Hon! Hassan, discovered
this ancient burial ground by a very
simple process. The soil which ho was
turning into a pit which, on further ex
amination, proved to bo a spacious sub
terranean cave, tonantcd by uncounted
legions of dead cats. Every ono of these
corpses had been sedulously embalmed,
and swaddled so to speak, in cloth cere
ments, in tho very best stylo of tho un
dertaker's craft, as practised in tho land
of tho Pharaohs some twenty centuries
before tho commencement of tho Chris
The news of this strange discovery
spread swiftly through Uciii Hassan and
tho adjoining districts, whence laborers
soon flocked to tho newly-opened cave,
and set to work with might and main to
disinter its venerable occupants. Why
these cats had been mummified, and
when they had come to bo arranged so
systematically in their subterranean
quarters, wore secondary considerations,
naturally enough, to tho iueolio Egyp

fellah could understand," but tho peas

commercial valuo of embalmed "cats
and dogs, and each obscener beast, to
which Egyptian dotards onco did bow,"
oithor as high-class manure or as a
peculiarly quick and fragrant com
bustible. AVith oxomplary promptitude,
and dispatch, therefore, they dug up
somo hundreds of thousands of mum
mies, soveral "lots" of which wero pur
chased on tho spot by local farmers,
whilo others found thoir way down rivor
to tho storehouses of an Alexandria
merchant. This worthy, being of a
speculative turn of mind, shipped them

STORY OF A DIAMOND.
It Cost the I.iro of the Poor Wretch Who
"There's the most beautiful diamond
I havo over soon during an experience
of thirty years with tho sparkling
goms," said a veteran diamond merchant
yostorday, as ho hold up a stono that
i seemed to live in tire. From every
facet radiated brilliant colors, and tho
huo of tho stono was that steely blue
which delights ovory connoisseur oi
the precious gems. Tho diamond did
not weigh over six carats, but it was
easily worth $.".,000.
"That stono has a tragic history,"
continued tho man of jowols as he laid
tho diamonds to rest amid a nest ol
snowy cotton. "It comes from tho Do
Uecrs mines, in South Africa, and was
discovered by a coolie employed by the
company. Ills practised oyo saw that
tho gom was a marvelous ono for beauty
of color, and a dosiro to steal it over
came him. Well, ho did steal it, and to
conceal tho diamond abou t his person
for tho coolies work almost naked in tho
diamond mines cut a holo in his ilesh
under tho arm. Hut tho wound did not
hoal, and tho observant eyo of the foro
man saw what was tho matter. A fow

having stolon a diamond, but tho negro
"When Jack, the foreman, roached
for his soro arm tho thief mado a dash
and ran toward tho outskirts of tho
camp liko a deer. Tho foreman fol

outstripped him. Ho kn)W that a sovoro
punishment awaited him if captured,
and centered all his effort on getting
away with tho stone, whoso valuo would
havo mado him rich for life. Hut Jack
was equal to tho omorgoncy, and draw
ing his pistol shot tho coolio through
tho back just as ho was taking to the
hills. His dead body was dragged back
into camp, his arm cut opon and tho
beautiful gem in tho rough was taken
from tho insertion. It's a tragic story,

WOMEN'S FAMILY NAMES.
Trouble Would ho Saved If They Wero
Not Dropped Altogether.
There is a lawyer who docs a good
deal of real estato conveyancing, ono of
tho chief of whoso grievances in life is
tho scant respect women show toward
thoir names. Tho fact that certain
altoration takes places in tho namo at
marriago destroys, so ho claims, what
ever regard a woman might bo expected
to pay to an exact rendering, and tho
fact that any logal significance can in
any caso attach to tho form seems to bo
quite boyond tho grasp of tho averago
fominino brain. If a girl baby is chris
tened Elizabeth sho will sign herself
whon called on to put hor namo to a
deod after sho is grown, Lizzie, Lisa,
Elise, Lisbot or Lisboth, acgording to
which diminutivo happons to bo hor
favorito for tho year, and will omit hor
middle namo, glvo It In full or by Initial,
or sign instead of hor own her hus
band's namo, according to hor sweot
liking. The task of tho lawyer who
has to trace up half a dozen of theso
signatures to make sure that thoy all
refer to tho same porson is not calcu
lated to make oasy tho task of his wifo
who has to soothe his rullled tempor
with a good dinner. That tho married
woman should in all cases rotaiu her
own family name, preceding it by hor
given namo and following it with her
husband's family name is tho lawyer's
plea if he is to bo saved from insanity

On the 11th of September. 18M I called
upon Dr. Jordan with what tho doctors
said was Inflammatory rhcttiiiulNm. My
risiht hand was the size of four, and I had
not l:ecn able to sleep for several night.
Dr. .Ionian prescribed for me and told me
to obtain some small bottles lu which to
put the medicine. I thereupon went into
a Seattle drug store and asked for some
bottles, remarking that I wanted them to
put Dr. JonHn's medicine Into. A lady
who was present gratuitously remarked
that Dr. .Ionian was a quack, I paid no
attention to this, as I lnd previous expe
rience with the doctor, who relieved tne o'
a misery in which other eminent phyl
cians failed. In just two weeks I coul l
write with my hand, and it has been wt II
ever since. The only object'on I have got
is that I paid 50 for the medicine and got
well before I used one-half of it, anil now
I havo J.'l worth of medicine 1 have no use
for, which is aggravating.

A so-called "Webster's Unabrldflod
Dictionary" is being offered to tho public
at a very lowprlco. Tlio body of tho book,
from A to Z, is a cheap reprint, pago for
pago, of tho edition of 1847, which was in
its day, a valuablo book, but in tho pro
gross oi language for over FORTY YEARS,
has boon completely superseded. It ic
now reproduced, broken typo, errors and
all, by photo-lithograph process, isprintol
on choap paper and lllmslly bound. A
briof comparison, pago by pago, botwoon
tho reprint and tho latest aud enlarged
edition, will show tho great superiority
oi the latter. Theso roprints aro as out
of dato as a last year's almanac. No hon
orablo dcalor will allow tho buyer of such
to suppose, that ho is gottlng tho Webstor
which to-day is occupied as tho Standard
and THE BEST, ovory copy of which,
bears our imprint as givon bolow.
tfif If persons who havo been induced to
purchaso tho " Ancient Edition" by any
misrepresentations will adviso ns of tho
facts, wo will undertake to seo that the
sollor is punished as ho deserves.
