Writing Lead Penrili.
Tho net of putting a lead pencil to
the tongue to wet it, just More writ
ing, w hich we notice in o many peo
plo is omi of tliu oddities for which it
to hard to give reason unlet it begun
in the days w hen lead pencils were
poorer than now, and wan continued by
example into the next generation.
A lead pencil nhould never be w et.
It hardens tho lead and ruins the pen
cils. Thin fact iu known to newspaper
men and stenographers. But nearly
every one elso does wet & pencil tafore
using it This fuct was definitely set
tled by r newHpaper clerk down east
Being of a mathematical turn of mind
he ascertained by actual count that of
50 persons who came into the office to
write an advertisement or church no
tice, 49 wet a pencil in their mouths bo
fore using it Now, this clerk always
uses tho best pencils, cherishing a good
one w ith sonn'tliiii? of that kind of
prido a soldier feels in his gun or
sword, and it hurts his feelings to have
his pencil Rpoiled. But politeness and
business considerations require him to
loan his pencil scores of times every
day. And often after it had been wet
until it was hard and brittle and refused
to mark, his feelings would overpower
Finally he got some cheap pencils
and sharpened them, and kept them
to lend The first person who took up
the stock pencil was a drayman whose
breath swelled of onions and whisky.
He held tho point iu his mouth and
soaked it for several minutes, while he
was torturing himself in the effort to
write an advertisement for a missing
Then a sweot-looking young lady
came into the office, with kid gloves
that buttoned half the length of her
arm. Mie picked up tne same old
pencil and addressed it to her dainty
lips preparatory to writing an adver
tisement for a lost bracelet. Tho clerk
would have stayed her hand, even at
tho risk of a box of the best pencils Fa
ler catered, but ho was too late.
And thus that pencil passed from
mouth to mouth for a week. It was
sucked by pcoplo of all ranks and sta
tions, and all degress of cleanliness and
unclcanliness. But wo forbear. Sure
ly no one who reads this will ever
again wet a lead pencil.
Being in a toWco store on Oravier
street, New Orleons, Colonel bam.
Boyd fell to praising his bloodod dogs
of the terrier and bull speces, His
extravagance provoked tho remark
from Col. I). A. Wilson, a bystander
that his colored porter owned a coon
which could whip any dog in the city
The talk became a dispute, and the dis
pute grew, and out of it came a wager.
The fight took place at Nelligan s once
the great sporting center in New Or
leans. The rules for tho combat were
drawn up regularly. Boyd led wut a
bull terrier named 8am. Tho dng
weighed thirty-five pounds. Ho was a
terrible thing of bono and teeth. .The
i.L I ..1-
coon was a veteran, witn iohjj
and teeth and heavy fur. Tho bets ran:
$1,000 to $500 that tho coon would
give in in ten minutes: ? 1,000 to $250
in twenty minutes; 81,000 to $100 in
one-half iiour, by the watck Several
buckets of water wero placed in the
ring for Andy's benefit By the time
that all was in reodiuess $54,000 had
been staked on the result, and the let
ters were all men of position and socic
ty. A member of Congress, the Sheriff,
and all the cify officials were present
Tho fight was opened by a dash of the
terrier. For a full minute the beasts
rolled over in deadly embrace over the
arena, and the fur flow. At the end
of the first round the dog wasn t such a
favorite, though lie still led. Round
after round was fought, until forty-five
minutes had Wn consumed. The
coon, with singular cunning, upset the
bucket of water in the sawdust, so that
the dog slipped here and there. The
fight ended in the complete discomfitun
of the dog, which died on the following
day from it wounds.
R.J. Hendricks, Sr., of Elk Head,
Douglas county, in a lit of temporary
insanity, committd suicide.
Died of Medical Etiqaeltt,
A Sir. John Promcy, of the firm of
Doherty A Dramey, booksellers, Cho-
boilei square, died here on Sunday last,
and the conduct of some medical men
in connection with his illness is consid
ered very singular. Dr. Kcld was first
called on to atttend the patient and he
prtseriled for him. Mr. Dromey, get
ting worse, Dr. Cameron was subse
quently sent for and he ordered some
medicine. On Dr. Reid returning and
finding Dr. Cameron had been there
he left the house and refused to have
anything more to do with tha case. Dr.
Cameron came a second time, and learn
ing of Dr. Rcid'a visit he declined as a
matter of etiquetto to act Other med
ical men, it is stated, were called on, but
refused on the same grounds aa Dr.
Cameron. In the meantime Mr. Drom
ey grew rapidly worso, and . died on
Sunday without a medical man seeing
him. Application was made to Dr.
Cameron since the death for a burial
certificate, but he refuse to give it, stat
ing that he had not attondud the de
ceased. Dr. Reid refused at first to
give the certificate, I ut subsequently
granted it. Toronto Globe.

Origin or UiejSlga ?.
"What is tho origin of the sign "$"
for the American dollar!" was the ques
tion propounded at a London dinner
not long ago. The American counsul
did not know, neither did any one else.
An extensive research resulted in this
theory: The American dollar is taken
from tho Spanish dollar, and tha sign
is to be found, of ccurse, in the associa
tions of Spanish dollars. On the re
verso side of a Spanish dollar is a rep
resentation of tho Pillars of Hercules,
and round each pillar is a scroll with
tho inscription, "Plus ultra." This de
vice in the course of time ha degenera
ted into tho sign which stands at pres
ent for American as well as Spanish
dollars "$." Tho scroll , round tho
pillars represents the two serpents sent .
by Juno to destroy Hercules in ; his
