Next rvenin tlio King received
tho Doctor affably, and thy sat down
to dinner with a ilozsn oonvivrs, all
bl.izing with decorations and uniforms
but constrained in manner and con-vt-rsatiou.
"Doctor," said the King;, at tha
conclusion of the repast, "Pray let us
see something ot your wondurftil
skill. Examine thuso gentlemen's
heads and tell me frankly what you
think of their characters and disposi
tions from t! e indications ntl'orded
by their cranial developments."
Gall arose and felt tho head of his
neighbor on the right, a stout, pow
friul man in n resplendent uniform
who had been addressed as "Grant."
"Speak frankly." said the king, see
ing that the phrenologist seemed u
little embarassed.
"His Excellency," said Gall, "must

sports and exciting pleasures; ho has

phrenologist to tl.e other neighbor a

" This gentleman;" said tho Doctor,
" hum is iui expert in gymnast c
exercises, an accomplished pedestrian;
very neat and graceful in all opera

" Enough," said tho King, rapping
on tho tables, and, as a score ot sol
dieis entered, ho continued to the
stupefaction of Dr. Gall, ''Remove

With a party ol friends, including
several ladies, General Ulysses ts.
Grant dined, the other evening, in
the public dining hall cf the Palmer
House. Ol course, when bis pres
ence b. cainu known, the guests ol
the hotel made a point to dine at the
same hour. The room was full ol
fashionably dressed men and woman.
Grant'- demeanor at the table was
watched with i -Mural curiosity, iu or
der to a.-ceilain how lar his manners
had been improved by travel and in
tercourse wiih the upper circles of
European society.

and his liien Js were seated waB re

looked upon this proceeding with tin

of Graut's party wore somewhat em
barrassed, aud hastily made prtpara
lions to depart. Grant, howtTir,
exhibited perfect unconcern. He got
up when lriends arose, and slowly
walked the length of the room,
puffing vigorously away.
As soon as the ex-Piesident'a parly
had disappeared, and the murmur of
disgust had subsided, a commercial
traveler, who had been sitting uot far
Ironi Grant, drew a cigar from his
pocket, lighted it, an I sauntered
down the room. "'Ihis is a frco

SuicKlnt Insanity.
Geneva, Deo. 8, Cort Rochester Democrat.
An attempt at suicido at llobart
College, Geneva, was made Saturday
night, the circuinsinueca concerning
which were not made public until
Monday morning. During Saturday
evening a strong smell ot escaping
gas pervaded the apartments ot the
students in one ot the building at
llobart College, and at last the smell
became so unbearable that nn investi
gation was made, and upon opening
the door of a room occupied by- a
young man named Ilutohinsoii the
gas poured out so as to almost lutl'o
cat the investigators. Upon titer
ing the gas waa lound turned on and
the burner or tip broken off, and
upon tho floor lay the occupant,
Hutchinson, In an unconscious state.
He was remove I at onco and medical
aid summoned. Upon examination
it was found that tho iuside of bis
mouth and throat were badly burned.
Everything was done to make him
comfortable, but he was iu a very
daugeruiis condition. It is feared
that the burning will aflect his taste
and speech. There is no doubt that
he whs out of his mind when he did
this act. Ho has acted very pecii
Marly tor some time past, and many
have doubted his sanity and spoken
ot it. Tli theory is that he got

Ex Senator Goldwaithe of Ala
U ma. was noted for his absent mind
edness, and he was occasionally seen
running about the Senate trying to
cot out and not being able to find the
door. He would have hall the page
boys in the Senate hunting his cane,
which would be all the whi'.t firmly
clasped iu his hand. He was inucb
given to walking up ana uowu me
lobby, plunged iu deep thought, of
ten smoking a flagrant Havaua, and
entirely oblivious of all things about
htm. Often some cneeay page
ot the Senate would walk up and ask
the Senator for a light. Mr. Gold
waithe would mechanically hand
over his cigar, the boy would lake a
light, put the choice weed in his
mouth and hand over the stump to
the old gentleman, who would con
tinue his stroll iu blissful ignoranoe.
It is related on good authority that,
iu one ot his fits ot abstraction, he
walked into the Senate elevator,
dropped a nickel into a hole back ol
the mirror and calralv requested lo

Tho Uev Henrv Ward HJeecher't
eclaration of his belief that there It
no "eternal punishment" for tho
wicked, and that there aro no lost
souls, has created much exoitement
in orthodox circles.
To a friend who apoke to him
about it this week, he said. "Wo be
hove much concerning tho future,
but we know nothing whatever. 1
lo not believo there is a bell, where
luinan buings are to bo enchained
forever, because the conception is
devilish not divine. I would not de
vise or construct a place or condition
ot endless ptini limeut of any kind,
and, as my God is infinitely bettor
and kinder than auy human being, I
know he has uot. We must inter-
prelGod by the highest and better
that is within ourselves, apd tt our
conception talis below that, wo must,
conclude we are mistaken in the por
traiture, and try again."
This is only one ot the JJeccntrian
heresies, but it is enough to explain
the alleged anxiety of the devout Ad-
ward Iieeober,wno, it is said, has beea
for many years greatly distressed
about "the slats of lloury's soul." I
heard, by the way, that all the
Seedier family make each other the
objects of special prayer each
