Xlio Two Ontsides.
The clerical-looking gentleman and
the bearded borderer were the only pas
senders on the Carson stage, seven hours
out, en route to Bodie. They occupied
the upper seat behind the driver, and
the tenor of their conversation indicated
that there was a slight misunderstand
ing between them a misunderstanding
that neither et thera seemed capable of
gathering up the threads ot a 6kein
that was momentarily becoming mdrc
and more tangled as pome new phase
of the' subject under discussion was
"When I was there," the clerical
gentleman was remarking, "the vine
yard was in a deplorable state."
"The vineyard!" interrupted his
"Yes ; the Lord's vineyard, I mean ;
the weeds were "
"Hold on a minute, siranger,'vex
ehiimed the other, hitching in hid seat,
and turning so as to lace his coman
ion "hold yer bosses. I ain't much
on this parable palaver, an' I come
mighty near giving ye the lie on that
vineyard bizainess cause, ye see, there
ain't no sech 'ithin five mile o' the
camp. Maybe there's a few down to
Salt Lake, but nobody wss ever fool
enough . o' speculating in vireyan'a
round my neighborhood. But it's all
right now ; I've cottoned to the right o'
the case, an I'm drawiu' my sights on
to Lord's vineyards."
"As I was saying," resumed the oth
er outside," "I found the field ot
labor in a deplorable condition. The
weeds had long since choked the
wheat, and tares were flourishing with
a luxuriance that might well sadden tbe
heart ot tbe husbandman. Human sac
rifices were frequent in the interior,
and barbarous executions for the most
trivial offenses were ot weekly occur
rence along the coast. I attended one
pt those executions, and it I am not too
tedious in my narration 1 will relate
the circumstances in connection with
the horrible affair. Are you agreeable ?"
"Go ahead, ol' man, I'm listenin.' I
like to hear a man tell a good one while
he's at it," and the bearded passenger
bitched backto his former position and
asked the driver tor "a chaw o' that
nigger" heel "
"Well, it appears that the unfortunate
man was condemned to death for poach
ing on the King's preserves. They had
adjudged him gnilty, and sentenced him
to be beheaded, and a more pitiable
wretch it ha3 never been my misfortune
to contemplate as be passed out of the
prison into the open court where he was
to be executed. He was made to kneel
and bend his neck, after - which the ex-
ecutkuier dipped his hand in a tub of
Watr, 'and drawing bis middle and
forefinger through the sand upon which
the doomed man was kneeling, applied
them to the naked neck of the shivering
wretch, .leaving a broad and distinct
mark at which to strike. lie . then
raised his great double-edged sword,
and ; with one blow the head tell from
the trunk, while the great stream of
blood crimsoned the sand."
" The clerical gentleman paused in as
tonishmctit. Ilia fellow-passenger was
taring at him with a strange expres
sion upon his sun-browned features,
which the narrator at first imagined
was the result of intense interest, but
which he gradually observed was pro
ducedby a disgusting disbelief in the j
statements which he had just beeu mak
ing. He cut himself short for the pur-'
pose ot allowing his hearer an opportu
tnty of relieving his overcharged mind,
knowing full well that if he did not the'
bearded man would explode, and render
tho situation decidedly unpleasant, to
ay -the least. The man of the border
made a great effort to control himself,
and in a tone plaiuly indicating that he
lorced .a calmness he was far from feel
ing, simply to, "clinch" the man who
sat beside Lim, and prove to the grin.
" ning driver thst no -man could with
impunity "put up a josh on him."

truth. . I witnessed the sickening spec
tacle ib 'the broad " glare "4 a tropical
sun, and I did not lose a single move

"What's your line ?" abruptly asked
the man with a beard.
"My profession ?"
"I am an evangelist a missionary."
"Ob, you're preacher, eh ?",
"A minister of the gospel yes."
"Yes ; which track are ye travelin'
how's yer baggage checked ?"-
"I don't believe I understand you "
"No? Well, what church are you
swearin' by ?"
"I am a Baptist."
"Good enough ; Baptist goes. You

"No, I don't doubt yer word ; but

"My friend, I fear you are attempt

you should not take advantage of me
in this abrupt and unceremonious way."
"I thought ye 'lowed ye'd been thar."
"Clieyem e ! Not at all. I never

At An ounaiiiif Discovery.
If the latent discoveries which the
emiiut philologist, Dr. Rudolf Falb,
claims to have made during bis-Tin.
guirtic researches in South America
should prove to be well founded, we
shall have to interchange the titles
which we are gi?ing at present to th
two be mispheTefV America, according
to Dr. Falb's hypothesis, is the "Old
World;" Europe, Africa and Asia
really constitute the "New World."
We learn from his own summary of his
researches, communicated to the Nem
Ju-ete Ire&e of Vienna, that the lan
guages spoken by the Indians in Peru
and Bolivia (especially in Quichua and
Adraara) exhibit the most astounding
affinities with the Semitic languages,
and particularly with the Arabic in
which tongue Dr. Falb himself has
been skilled from his boyhood. Fol
lowing up the lines ot this discovery,
Dr. Falb has found (1) a connecting
link with the Aryan roots, and (2) has
ultimately arrived face to face with the
surprising revelation that "the Sematic
roots are uuivcrsally Aryau." The
common stems ot all the variants are
found in their purest condition in
Vuichua and Almara, from which fact
Dr. Falb derives the conclusion that
high plains of Peru and Bolivia must
be regarded as the point of exit of the
present human race. So Adam was an
Driving; 1 Rats Away Without P.tson.
We know of three methods. First,
the old French plan. This is followed,
chiefly in Paris, by men who make it a
special business. They take a deep
tub, with water on the bottom and a
little elevation in the middle like an
island, on which is only a place for just
one rat to sit. This trap is covered,
and has a large balance valve opening
downwards. On the middle ; of this
valve a piece of fried pork or cheese is
placed, and when the rat walks on to
it to get the cheese the valve goes down,
drops the rat into the water aud moves
back iuto position. A road is made by
means of pieces ot board rubbed with
cheese, so as to make the walk more
attractive for the rats. In the course
of the night some ten, twenty, or even
more Tats may go down, and it the
island was licit there, they would be
alive in the morning,
quietly swimming around ; but the
provision ot the little island saves the
trouble of killing them, because their

We have, however, never tried it. A

whatever. Their craving hunger will
cause them to fight, and the weakest
