DESCENDANTS OF PILGRIMS.
Walter Mount riguree That
Are 10,000 la Am arte.
Many people in America claim descent
ronl the pilgrim fathers. There niiht
be a very considerable number, if we
come to thiuk of it For instance, let
ns assume the number of married peo
ple among the first hundred who sur
vived the first winter as SO couples. We
will allow them three children apiece.
We will give to each of these children
two a large allowance, it la true, Tbou
we have for each married cooplo, for
the first generation, 8 descendants; for
the second, 6; for the third, 13; for the
fourth, 24; for the fifth, 48; for the
sixth, 96; for the seventh, 193; for the
eighth, 884; for the ninth and the pres
ent generation, 7C8, and for the orig
inal 30 married couples, 10,300. So
that the living desceudauts of the May
flower pilgrims can hardly be more than
boot 15,000. Out of these a great many
have probably ckan forgotten their de
scent. Probably there are not anything
If I were an American, I should cor-
tainlv like to be one of that 10,000.
Not that I feel the least attraction to a
narrow ana run a no religion, nni De
cause the pilgrim fathers made so fierce
a fight for existence and a place wbere
they could think aa they pleased aud
allow no one else to thiuk aa be might
please. Ancestry in this country at
least, ia chiefly a matter of selection.
The people who keep np their geneal
ogies drop out aa they go along num
berless branches. People who wish to
recover their genealogies have got to
"hitch on" at one of the dropped
branches. Every marriage in a geneal
ogy ia a kind of junction, wbere many
lines may meet Now, the business of
the genealogist is to look np all the jono
tions, to follow up each one and to
choose the line which offers the mot
desirable alliances. Some years ago an
ingenious gentleman offered to find roy
al descent for any one for 70 down.
He did it, too, quite honestly. Ho said
that if you could only get back 100
years or so it was perfectly easy to con
nect with Edward I or Edward IIL

Up to the time of Cleveland's election
it was a popular superstition with poli
ticians that no candidate whose name
began with the letter C could be elected
to the presidency. The idea arose from
the fact that no man whose surname
presented this peculiarity, no matter
how strong he was witb the people, had
ever been successful at tbe polls. Tlicro
were two Clintons, Georgo aud DeWitt,
William H. Crawford, Henry Clay,
Lewis Cass and a number of others,
who, though their prospucts seemed
bright indeed, met with a defeat when
, it cam9 to the tegt gcveral of the C's,
George Clinton and Henry Clay, for in
stance, were strong candidates several
times, but never could "make the
riffle." Pittsburg Dispatch.

Bob Jolly of Cave City has a hand
saw porcbasod in 1796 in Virginia. It
was bought in that year by the grand
father of the Otter brothers, the well
known Louisville merchants, who are
no spring chickens at this writing
themselves. Mr. Otter, tbe grandfather,
shortly after moved to Kentucky and
brought the saw witb him. Mi. Jolly
has owned the saw for 48 years. The

Otter made bis trip to Kentucky froc
Virginia are still to be seen on tbe place

It is not infrequently that an officer
is found who can do all this and more
too. At olio of tho most prominent cross
streets there is a policeman who is a
close second to tho caliph that decided
the ownership of au infant iu his owu
highly original way. Among umuy in
stances where his acumen has played a
particular part is one that hap!encd a
day or so ago. It concerned a bicycle.
The latter was left by its rider aguiiibt
tho curb. A few minutes later a young
muu approached it The policeman in
question hud not seen tho owner get off
tho machine, but ho thought tho new
comer looked a triflo suspicions. Tbe
chain and sprocket wheel of the bicycle
had been secured together by a padlock.
When the young man iu question began
to carry the wheel off insteud of unlock

"Do you owu that bicycle?" bo said
to the young man."
"Yes," was the reply.
"Whore's your key, thou?" was bis
"I've lost it" That settled it
"Say, now," contiuued the police

The young man seemingly did not
want to maki any trouble. He hesitated
for a moment and then said, "Why, yes,
if you want it"
"Aud now," contiuued the police
man, after he had it, "you know the
case looks strange, and yon kuow we
have so many bikes lost, would you
mind waitiug 15 minutes to see if any
one else should come after that w heel?"
"Xo, I guess nut," said the young
man. Theu he leaned buck on a railing
and began to wait After ho had been
there three cr fonr minutes the police

You can go." And then, turning to a

Tna Cat Rvnad, bat tha Stool Woman
Waa Mot KaUaOed.
It was a damp day. but tbe crowd
stood and watched the thick cat as it
mewed plaintively and clung to the
trailing vine three stories above the
street in front of a four story brown
stone dwelling. A long wire supported
the viue, nearly reaching tho roof. Tbe
cat, in a sportive mood evidently, hud
climbed the luig viue and at tho third
story stopped, as if fright had paralyzed
further efforts. Every minute it mewed,
and its appeal for help collected a crowd.
A largo woman bald :
"Why dou't some cue climb up there
and release that cat?"
"Suppose you try it, madam, " chirped
a dapper little man, who looked npou
the uttuir as a joke.
"Well, if I had your small heft I
would climb that vine. Men never do
anything dangerous theso days."
"Oh, yes, they do, uiuduml They
catch cold, driuk too much and stay out
lute ut their lodges. "
She gave the little man a look and
ejaculuted: "You think you uro smart,
don't you? You can tulk, but you cuu't
rescue even a cat."
"You do uie wrong. Watch mo rescue
that cut even ut the peril of being in
sulted. Do not be frightened. I go, but
I will return. " He ran across the street
as tbe large woman sbonted, "He is go
ing to climb I" He rang the doorbell of
the house, and when the servant girl
appeared he pointed to the cat above.
The door closed, and a few minutes
later a window in the third story opened,
and the girl, reaching her arm out,
caught tbe cat aud took it iu. The
crowd cheered, aud the duppor inun
bowed, but tbe large woman said con
