Little Jack Front wont up the htlL
Watching the stars bo oold and oliill.
Watching the stara and the moon bo bright,
And Ungking aloud like crazy wight.
Little Jack Frost ran down the hill.
Late in the night, when the winds were still,
Late in the fall, when the leaves (ell down,

Little Jack Froet walked through the trees,
"Ah," tighed the noers, "we freeze, we

Little Jack Frost tripped round and round,
Spreading white snow on the frosen ground ;
nipping toe Dreaee, icing tne streams,

Hose-biting, prank-playing, everywhere ;
All throwgh the houses, out in the street,
Capering wildly through storm and sleet.
But when Eame Nature brought back
Brought back the bird to chirp and Blng,

Little Jack Frost went pouting by.
The flowers opened their eyes of blue.
Green buds ereeped oat and grasses grew,
And it got so warm and scorched him so,
Little Jack Frost was glad to go.

liook in with me at the waiting-room
ef this little village railway station,
children. It don t look a bit like your i
errand dity deixt- a room no larger than
your nursery at home. Two little win
dows, -about a dozen seats along the ,
sides, and a rusty coal-stove I believe
that is all the furniture it contains.
Two or three men and as nany boys
stand aronnd the stove, some talking,
others eating apples. Near one of the
windows sits a fat, rosy-cheeked mar
ket woman, with a great pile of bun
dles, baskets and bags on one side of
her, and on the other a little boy. The
little boy ha a big red comforter round
his neck, gray yarn mittens on his
hands, and a long, thick overcoat near
ly to his knees. Ah! you think that is
little Jake. No, indeed, it isn't. His
mother Baid to him, just a little while
Near them, on the other side of the
door, is a long, lean countryman, with
a big basket tied "over with a blue cot
ton cloth, and something alive under
the cover. We know that big fellow
isn't like Jake. Then away from the
rest, quite on the other side of the
room sits an important-looking city
" Drummer" (ask your papa what that
means). He has a large black valise,
and I reckon it is full of " Yankee no
tions" as samples to show to the
country merchants.- On the outside, in
big white painted letters, ' Mr. James

knows who he is. Then I am only

Whew ! w-h-e-w ! Ah ! the train is
coming. What a stir ! The tall country
man rushes out of the door, saying,"
" Them docks must go to-day." The
fat woman gathers up her baskets, bags,
and bundles, and leans back and puffs
under the load as she hurries to the
platform. Little Charlie has enough to
do to carry himself and his load of

as the engine comes around the curve.
A black object sticks its head from the
window. There is a !wild excitement
among the boys even little Charlie
manages to dance a lie under ins over
coat and comforter, and to scream with
the rest, "There's Jake !"
A minute more and the train is here.
The black object in the window is a
dog ! He is little Jake. As the en
gineer lays his hand on the throttle, the
dog turns and watches the movement,
glances in the man's kindly face, and
leaps froir the window.
The boys caress him, even the fussy
station-agent says a kind word to him.
He runs quickly around among the
crowd as though he wanted to see all
he coold in a few minutes, and noto the
changes since yesterday. Then, as the
- last passenger gets into the cars, the
conductor sings out, "All aboard," the
warning bell rings, and Jake springs on
the rear platform. He trots into .he
car at the conductor's heels, stops at
the stove a moment, then off down the

exertion and mother's help, takes the
dog on his lap, hugs and pats him,
looks at his teeth and funny little
tongue. IJut Jake peeps Inquisitively
toward the countryman's basket, runs
and tries to put his nose under the
cover, at which the ducks give a flutter
and quack,' and Jake a low growl.
Then off again, watching the conductor
take up the tickets, and receiving pats
and kind words from the passengers.
Presently he stops, with such a queer
look, and really stares into the city
clerk's face. Perhaps Jake admires his
fine clothes. He smells at the big va
lise, then licks the toe of the man's
shiny boot. Funny Jake ! And ' what
do yon suppose the cross fellow .-does ?

"Aw, aw, quite amusing to the conn

nuisance to me."
"Dear little fellow I nice doggie !"
the passengers say, looking kindly at
Jake and crossly at the city man. Then,
as - the brakeman comes in to fix the
stove, and sees the hanging tail and
downcast looks of his little favorite, he
calls him off into the baggage car. - :
How fond the train men all are of
him ! Often, when overworked , and
tired, Jake's mute sympathy brings a
smile to their lips. There isn't a 'man
among them who wouldn't share his
dinner with Jake. .
I remember last summer, one hot
day, some boys detained him until after
the train started. How he ran to over
take the cars, leaping from tie . to tie on
the track ! What an eagerly excited
crowd gathered on the back platform to

Fire Hundred Thousand Years Ago.
The Nation condenses from an Eng
lish scientific periodical some interest
ing speculat'o is from Dr. Alfred Rus
sell Wallace of the probable ant qnity
of the human species. They may well
startle, it says, even those who have long
since come to the conclusion that 6,000
years carry us but a small way back to
the original home. In fact, Dr. Wal
lace's 6,000 years are but as a day. He
reviews the carious attempt to de
termine the antiquity of human remains
or works of art, and finds the bronze
age in Europe to have been accurately
fixed at 3.000 or 4,000 years ago, the
stone age of the Swiss lake dwellings
at 5,000 to 7,000 years, "and an
indefinite anterior period." The
burnt brick found sixty feet deep in the
fine alluvium indicates an antiquity of
au.wo years ; anotuer iragment as seven-
I ty-two feet gives 30,000 years. . A human
.ki.i. v. .it, r .
feet j, haried forests superposed
upon each other has been calculated by
ur. Dawel to nave an antiquity of oU,
000 years. But all these estimates are
pale before those which Kent's Cavern
at Torquay legitimates. Here the drip
of the stalagmite is the chief factor of
our commutations, giving us an upper
floor which divides the relics of the last
2,000 or 3,000 years from a deposit of
the bone of an extinct mammalia and
glutton, indicating an arctic climate.
Names out in the stalagmite more than
2,000 years ago are legible in
other words, where the stalag
mite is twelve inches thick and
the drip very copious, not more than a
hundredth of a foot has been deposited
in two centuries a rate of five feet in
10,000 years. Below this, however, we
have thick, much older and crystalline
(l e. more slowly formed) stalagmite,
beneath which again, "in a solid orecia
very different from the cave earth, un
doubted works of art have Iteen found.
Mr. Wallace assumes only 100,000 years
for the upper noor, zou.uuu for the im
mediate cave earth; by which he arriv
ed at the "sum of 500,000 years that
have probably elapsed since human

An Ingenious Robbery.
A few mornings since, writes the
Paris correspondent of the London
Daily Telegraph on March 26, a sen
sational robbery was committed, of that
bold but patient and thoughtful type
which we are beginning to recognize as
the American style. A. M. Delapierre,
money-changer on the Boulevard de la
Madeleine, joins to this business a trade
in expensive nick-nacks. Nearly each
day for the last six months an Ameri
can has made small purchases in the
shop. With the ease and volubility of
his pleasant race, this gentleman had
fallen into tbe habit of exchanging long
gossips with M- Delapierre, who looked
on him as one of bis best custo
mers. The other morning the Ameri
can arrived as usual with a friend.
M. Delapierre had just taken out a bag
of money and valuables, which he
placed in the window while talking.
There is, of course, a money-changer's
trrating between it and the shop. Pres
ently entered a third person, who
bought a silver teapot, which the as
sistant packed up and carried to the
address given. When he had gone the
American produced a claw, such as ga
globea are set upon, and said carelessly
to tho money-changer: "I wish you
would see if you Lave a glass to fit this
claw." M. Delapierre went with him
into the back shop and sought a globe
to match, leaving the friend alone. It
appears that he immediately
opened the grating, seized the
little bag of valuables, and called
out, " Haven't you found a glass yet ?"
The American came back; chose some
small articles to be sent home, and then
went off quietly with his companion.
Not for half an hour .afterward did M.
Delapierre discover - his loss, which
amounted to 12,000, half of it in bank
notes and gold, and the rest in checks
and negotiablo paper. A theft so pa
tiently concocted, so audaciously car
ried out, is worthy of notice. Like our
own bank forgers, these men had plainly
some capital, besides shrewd brain and
cold resolution They could afford to
wait six months, and to bny silver tea
pots and trifles of that sort. .-:
An Extraordinary Crime in Washington.
A very extraordinary attempt at mur
der was made in Washington, Tuesday
April loth. The parties are uen. button
and Gan. Boss, old citizens of Wash
ington, and companions in arms in the
Mexican war. Sutton and Boss were
about to open a large billiard room.
According - to Button s ante-mortem
statement, Boss came to him Tuesday
afternoon and took him to the fourth
story of the building they were to oc
cupy, to consult with him about some
improvements. While there, Boss at
tacked him with a heavy hammer and a
sharp instrument. After that everything
was a blank' to Sutton for two hours.
He revived, - crawled down two pairs
of stairs to where there were work
raeny - who vsaw- that' be "ws coy
covered with blood and nearly dead.
The oolice. surgeons, and the District
AUirnn vera mimmoned. The physi
cians said Sutton must die. In his
ante-mortem statement : he- said , Boss
was his murderer. Boss was found in
his room at the Metropolitan Hotel, ad
joining the scene 3 of the murder. He
was changing hia clothes. A bloody
handkerchief was found in. his room,
and his hand was cut Boss was brought
to th dvinc man. and declared that the

begged Sutton not to go to eternity with
a lie on his lips. Tbe affair is very mys

The only dansrerons National bank
counterfeits of the denomination of five
dollars in circulation, are the issue of
the Traders' National Bank, the Third
National Bank, and the Merchants Na

First National Banks of Chicago have
been retired, and the notes of all four
of these of this denomination are being
rapidly redeemed in the redemption of

notes of tlda denomination will be issued
by these- banks. The public generally
should refuse notes of the denomination

A Short Dip Into Natural History.
From Old and New.
Que sunny morning in summer, down
the pathway, still sparkling with the
dewy moisture, came stealthily moving
the long, iitne iorm ox a nuns. iter fur
looked worn and rusty when the sun
light struck her as she shulked between
the tussocks of grass. Occasionally she
halted to look about her, alert ior any
thing eye could see or ear could hear;
but, hearing nothing but the sweet
notes of a song-sparrow and the com
plaining cry of a cat-bird among the
alders, she again moved on. , As she
reached the muddy edge of the brook,
she trod more daintily: then, windins
among the pickerel-weeds, swam down
stream, hardly disturbing the water,
only making a long, wedge-shaped wake
as she stole into the shadowy edge
of the brook. Suddenly she dis
appeared under the water, but
soon came np, struggling with
something that swayed and pulled her
about, disturbing the quiet stream, and
sending a muddiness down with the
current. But she bore the almost un
manageable wriggling eel (for this it
was) to the stone wall and drawing her
self and burden up out of the water on
the large stone, re-ad usted her hold.
and seised the creature back of the head.
Then, bracing herself to draw the biood,
the thrashing, struggling eel grew grad
ually weaker ar-d weaker, until it looked
perfectly limp and lifeless. Then she
jumped from the wall, dragging this
eel, longer than herself, np through the
grass, taking a uinerent and more con
cealed way than the one by which she
came, and soon disappeared altogether
In the thick-banked wall of the barn
on the'nillside she had her young; and
after they grew large enough to require
something more substantial than na
ture's first provision, the a other used
to bring them fish of different kinds
eels, ducks and like prey. So slyly and
stealthily did she keep herself, that she
was not seen until the young were half
grown, and looked like little fawn-color
ed weasels, when she betrayed herself
by bringing this food which impeded
her movements. By traveling the same
way so many times she grew bold.
These minks are very destructive to
fish, and when the brook is low they
can be tracked for a long distance by
the dead eels, pickerel, shiners, and
sometimes trout, lying along the bank,
the mink only sucking the blood and
leaving the fish unmntilated. One
autumn some small shiners, meant for
a bait in pickerel fishing though the ice,
were kept in an old tub, set in a spring
near the brook, and one night all these
fish v ere killed by a mink, who left
them laid in a row on tbe ground.
They looked precisely as if some per
son bad so arranged them. But through
the back of each hsh, near the head,
were four tooth-marks, this being fre
quently the only mark the mink makes
on its victim.
A Baltiinorean Selling Out in Paris.
From the New Tork Times.
Two very interesting auction sales
are going on at this time, one being
that of Mr. lihany, of .Baltimore. ,Mr.
Tiffany was a warm personal friend of
Norman Story, who was killed at Pan,
and both members of the Washington
Club of Paris. Some time lest summer
they took down a lot of English hunters
and pack of hounds, and established a
spleudid hunt at Pau. They had about
twenty very fine hunters in their
Some two months, ago Norman Story
was killed, and ' 1 can only give the
popular version of the affair. While
following the hounds, btory came to a
crate upon which a peasant was leaning.
and asked him to throw it open, lhe
man said he should not do so unless he
was paid for it, and demanded a piece
f money. Being in hasto Storey
turned back a few yards and put his
hunter at the gate. It would have been
carried easily enough, bnt just as the
horse rose the malicious brute of a man
threw the gate wide open, and tbe horse
and rider came crashing down upon it.
The horse being a very heavy animal,
Mr. Storey was badly injured, and had
his canteen driven into his liver. He
died in a day or two.
Mr. Tiffany was deeply affected by
the death of bis friend. He at once
bought the ground on which the acci
dent occurred (it was little better than
a murder), and intends erecting a mem
orial chapel upon it. He sold out his
stables and then announced his inten
tion of selling out his hotel in Paris and
of leaving Europe forever. The Bale
has been a curious one, for dnring bis
residence in V.enna, where he was Sec
retary of Legation, if I remember
rightly, and ia Paris, Mr. Tif
fany has made a rare collection
of works of art. The hotel was
crowded and the bidding exceedingly
animated, most of the things selling
for more than they cost. For instance,
there was a curious lot of American pis
tols that brought more than the manu
facturers' prices, and all the hunting
cups and other objects of art brought
their full value. The four-in hand
drag sold for about 4,500 francs; a
coupe badly used, for 2,200 francs; a
Victoria for 1,900 francs, and so 'on,
nearly every article fetching more than
it was worth in its present condition.
To-day the furniture is to be sold, in
cluding a solid silver bath tub.
A iUll-ClImbing Locomotive.
. The Leviathan, a new hill-climbing
locomotive, which is intended to run up
and down the Ithaca Hill, on the U. X
& B. K., is described as follows: There
are laid down the Ithaca Hill four rails
besides the cogged one; when the en
gine starts up hill it rests upon a pair ,
of rails just within the usual' track and
upon a set of double-flanged small
driving wheels, which are upon the
same axles, with the big drivers they
being only thirty inches in diameter:
this inside track is raised about fifteen
or eighteen inches above the outer one,
and nigh enough so that the big drivers
do not touch the track at all; the engine
rests now upon the small drivers and
are independent of the other ones;
then in the centre of the track is placed
a wide cogged rail, which exactly
"smashes" into the cog-wheel, which is
between these small drivers, directly
under the locomotive. Thus it will be
seen that by applying power to the big
drivers xn 'ihe ordinary .way the power
is thus applied to the cogged wheel,
which does the climbing. ; The cogs are
about three inches from tip to tip, and
the wheel is eight inches wide. The
locomotive and tender are very heavy,
and are made so that they can hug the
track more closely. It ia arranged for
ordinary rood purposes, as well as for
hill climbing, and until the hill track is
completed will be used on the Scipo
train. The engine cost $11,200. and
weighs sixty-three tons, with coal and
water. The manufacturer says it is of
sufficient power to draw one hundred
and one cars of ten ton each up a grade
of one foot in nine, with 180 pounds of

A JAPANESE STORY.
now An Old Connie's Utile Trensare
Kroaht Grief ! Several Avaricious
The following curious story, savs the
Japan Gazette, though savoring of the
improbable, is vouched for by a n itive
journal: wear Kawagoye. m Kama-
gaya Ken, lived an old couple, man and
wife, who had worked hard for many
years farming, and had put by
200 yens for a rainy day. One day dur
ing the course of last year the old man
remarked to his better-half that they
were over sixty years of age and must
die soon, and asked wh it they should do
with their earnings. Neither of them
liked the idea of leaving the money they
had earned by the sweat of their brows
for other people to spend, so it was
agreed that when one of them should
die the survivor should place the money
m the coma with the boo.y, to pay the
expenses of the journey of both to tbe
other world, the one on demand and the
other in advance.
The husband was the first to succumb
to the tyrant death, and was placed in
his coffin, not with the 200 yen though.
for the old woman, with the Jailing of
her sex, changed her mind, and retained
the money, thinking it would be far
more sensible to spend it in procuring
masses,, requiems, and offerings of
flowers and perfumes for the departed.
She therefore intrusted the money to a
Kocho of the village,' with instructions
to use it as above stated. But this
Kocho, tempted by the filthy lucre, did
not have masses sung, sacrifices offered,
&c, but kept the money, in the hope of
the old lady following her husband.
This, however, she flatly refused to do,
and continued robust and healthy,
month after month, until a
short time ago, when the Kocho.
weary of the delays of King Death;
thought to assist the aged female in her
journey to a better (or worse) world,
and sut her, with touching inquires s
to her health, a few tempting cakes,
well dosed with poison. The old wo
man, after conveying her thanks to the
Kocho, offered the cakes to her "la
mented" husband that is, she placed
them on the shelf, for he also was "on
the shelf and had )een for some time.
Just then a ghost-like form appeared
before her, with face red as beet-root.
body of immense size, a large, gro
tesque ornament, in the shape of
a pair of horns, protruding from his
head, and , a huge sword girt about
his loins. Moreover, this strange
obiect was clothed in a priest s coat,
and when he had remained sufficiently
iong for the old lady to recover from
the alarm which tbe first sight cf him
created, he thus addressed her: "lam
Yanma Dalo, (judge of criminals in the
place of darkness.) You did not place
the 200 yen in the coffin of your dead
husband, according to promise; where
fore he is distressed, and is suffering
intensely on account of the extreme
difficulty of his journey. I could not
bearsto hear his groans and mut ered
imprecations, so 1 have come to xe
ceive the money fur him. Give it me
The astonished woman, after confess
ing that she had broken her promise,
explained that she had kept the money
for sacrifices and ocrings, adding that
she would go immediately and. bring
the money; it was till in cuarge of the
Kocho. The Yepma, however, stopped
her, saying, " I' am the King of hell,
and have come here secretly, and
would not like the people of this world
to see me. I must hide myself while I
am waiting. " The woman, taking in
the situation at a glance, put
him in a large box which had been kept
at one time for clothing, telliatg him
that if he should feel hungry he would
find tome cakes on the shelf. Sfce then
went to the Kocho axl told hint what
had taken plaee. Koaho, being suspic
ions that it was some trick of the old
woman's, said he would go back with
her and see who this wonderful person
age was, and would then give her the
money. 1 On reaching home the woman
pointed to the large box, which Kocho
opened, but started back with horror on
seeing the Yeuma Daio lying nearly
dead, vomiting blood, his. body being
quite blue! The old woman ran to the

Tub Queen of all Sewing Machines.
In speaking of the merits of the Wilson
euuttle sewing machine, it is sufficient fur us
to say that we think the invention of this ma
chine marks one of the most important eras in
the history of this country; and when we con
sider the influence it has upon the social well
being of tbe masses, it is difficult to conceive
of an invention of more importance. It has a
Deantiiiu. noiseless movement; it mases tne
Genuine lock-stitch" alike on both sides, and
oes to perfection all kinds of plain and fine
sewing; it needs no commendation; its rapid
sales, the increasing demand, and the many
flattering testimonials from those who, have
used it, is Btifhcient proof of ' its -merits: The
want of a t-ewing machine is deeply felt in
every hoasehold, aud as tho Wiieon shuttle
sewing machine, on account of its extreme
simplicity and less cost of manufacture, is Bold
it a much lower price than all other first-class
machines, it is meeting wivh the extensive
patronage that it so juBtly deseives. Machines
will be delivered at any railroad station in this
county, free of transportation charges, if or

Davis' Pain Killeb. This article
needs no comments from us, but the real
worth of so valuable a compound compels us
