menced last Ka:ardar, fortifving by
pointed and well-elected authorities.
The position heretofore stated as relied
upon by the defendant Judge Brown
st-emed to elabihb the Imprudence of the
order first Issued granting an injunction
and appointing a receiver. Brown at last
satisfied bu associate counsel. He Wat
followed by Judge Waldo in a brief but
eloquent argument for complainant.
Governor Bros n takes tht brad ground
thai the Texas Pacific has an exclusive
charter, and that no other company can
build any road anywhere within the
eibt-u,ile belt between El Paso and tan
D.ego, and that tbe Southern Pacific is a
trespajmer npon their exclusive rights, and
that 1'js charter from New Mexico, being
in conflict with the act of congress under
a hicti tbe Texss Pacific wss organized, is
null and void. Governor Brown alto an
nounced that tney were preparing the
papers to commence a similar suit iu Ore

"I came on bert to get tht authorities to
call off tbt Per who art conspiring
against me. There it a political conspir
acy of spiritualistic mediums who are
trying to obtain possession of my mind.
They ara trying to pnt pbysche in my
brain. They revealed to me in 1575
while I was in San Francisco, that I wss
to shoot brant and the t'nnct or n bales,
the e'.dert m of the Dutch widow, and
they have Wn puruiiig mt ever since
with spiritual exhortation to carry out
their behixts. I have been doing battle
against them ever since. Last month I
came from Sin Francisco to Philadelphia,
and tried to make a settlement in one of
the court. thstju-lic might aid me to fight
the rniisptrary, but I taw no opportunity
to be beard in court unless I committed
some misdemeanor. I got myself arrested.
I split a brick In halves and put tbt
halve in my overcoat pot kels. When I
got to the poetotAce I took one from my
pocket and threw It through one larze

Ia violation of the customs of Broom
fluid society, my children go barefooted

to go barefooted for the lack of money to

XLi faiu, suiu puaniuij, in that case, they
would not be the only ones in tbe fam

privilege. I believe most fixmlj that
thoir health is greatly augmented by tbia
practice. If they wear shoe and stock

A single lightning bolt struck this
city (Norwich, Connecticut) on Thurs-
t afternoon that wrought more havoc
than all the thunder bolts of the last
twenty years. An inky-black cloud
rolled up at 2 o'clock, and without any
warning auddenly discharged a zig-zag
flash of fire directly at tha city. A ter
rific peal of thunder followed instantly.
Nearly every one in the city was bewild
ered for a moment with the impression
that he or she bad been struck. Several
horses in tha atroet fell in their harness
in fright Tbe electrio fluid seems to have
been divided and sent in a hundred (lifer
ent directions. On Laurel Hill the
bouse of Kelson Oalby was entered at
the second story. Its French roof was
demolished, nearly an entire window sill
was torn from its frost and hurled across
tha street. Mrs. Priestly and her 17
year old daughter were thrown en
tirely acrosa the room, and a board
on the outside of house was hurled
through a window across a room within
a foot of a lady's head and driven en
tirely through a partition. The lath and
plaster in the kitchen and pantry were
swept from the walls, the kitchen mat
ting waa torn in shreds, and the floors
wert lifted tip. Several windows were
carried away, and one bed waa taken up
and twisted into varioua shapes, yet no
one in the house waa severely injured.
No one aaw the flash, and no fire fol
lowed the stroke.
In the neighboring house of Mr.
Charles E. Cuse. electrician, twentv
seven feet of telcy wire was entirely
consumed, but U.u cord cable that en
cased it waa not even scorched. A part
of the aame flash passed through the
ttore of Iieid k Hughes, which waa
filled with customers. The bolt entered
tht front door, flashed across tbt
store abort tbe breads of the people, and
passed out of a rear window that was
open. Its appearance is described aa
lice a ball of blue fire. No one was in
jured, and the flash was gone so quickly
that no one felt tht alarm, in tht
Western Union telegraph office the
wiu-h board was scorched and a piece of
paper burned at exactly the aame mo
ment. For an instant tht whole office
seemed to ta filled with flame, and tha
operators received a slight shock. At
the same moment a flash came into every
office and dwelling in which was a tele
phone. The appearance of tht flame
waa tha aame in each case, described aa a
jet of blue fire bursting out of the in-
atrument and filling the room with an
odor likt that of burning brimstone. In
tht Telephone exchange, where all the
wires center, the flame burst out and
filled tht room, and tha clerks left their
posts and ran oat Nearly a dozen tele
phones in tht city wert more or lest
shattered, and tht next day not an instru
ment could ba worked in the city.

The lizard thought a moment. "Does

"Then it is the stopper of the perfume

"That is it," replied the beetle.
"And five questions to spare," said
the lizard. Then he went on.
"I'll help you to find it, and I shall
only ask you to give me a quarter of the

"All right! replied the beetle, who
was afraid the lizard would go and look
for the lost stopper on his own aoconnt,
and get all the reward, if he should not

tha lizard, who now seeiuftd to be very

They now lourneveJ on for some dis
tance, when, passiug a little thicket of
forns, they saw a small dwarf, not much
bigger than either of them, asleep under
a toud-atool. He was an old dwarf, for
he had a long white beard, and ho held
in hia lao a oickax. made of a stronir
twig, with two sharp thorns growing
from one end of it.
Hi!" whispered the lizard. "Here is
one of those digging dwarfs. Let's cap
ture him, and make him look for the
stopper. If it has fallen into any crack,
and been covered up by earth, be can
dig for it"
That ia true, said the beetle. "But
shall we have to give him any of the re
"Oh. we can give him a little." said
the lizard. "He will not expect much."
But how are we to catch him?'' asked
tht beetle. "If he hits one of ns with
that pickax, it will hurt."
' It will not hart you, said the hzaad.
Your shell ia to hard. I am quite soft.
so I will keep ont of his wsv. I will
climb on top of the toad-stool, and you
can cree'p up. and seize him by the ankle
with your pincers. Then, when he
wakes np, ha will see me sticking out my
tongue OTer his head, and be will be
frightened, and will surrender."
It all happened as the - lizard said it
would. The beetle slipped up quietlv to
the dwarf, and, turning over on one side,
so as to get a better hold, he seized him
by the anile. The dwarf woke tin sud
denly, was greatly frightened at seeing
the lizard making terrible facet above
him, and surrendered. His captors then
told him whst they were trying to find.
and ordered him to come and help them.
They all went on together, and the
dwarf said to the beetle:
"If you had pinched a little harder,
you would have taken off my foot."
"If you bad not surrendered," replied
the beetle, "I might have been obliged
to do so; but if vou will help us cheer
fully, no harm will come to you."
For a long time the three searched the
woods diligently. They looked nnder
every leaf, and in every crack; and the
dwarf dug with his pick in many spots
where the lizzard thought the ground
looked as if a cork -st opper were con
cealed beneath it Hat no stopper could
they find. - -
"It is very necessary that it should be

After mora fruitless search tha beetle

So he looked about until he found a
cork-tree. Then with his little ptckax.
he chopped off a small portion of the
rough outer bark from the lower part of
the trunk, and carefully cut out a piece
of toft cork which grew beneath. This
piece was nearlr as big at himself, but
be lifted it easily, for it waa to light.
and carried it to hit own house, which
waa not far away, in' the forest
There he took a sharp knife, and
carved and cut the cork into the
shape of a bottle-stopper; making
it very small at one end and
large at the other, so that it would fit
almost anv bottle. With a small file
he made it smoother than a ny cork stop
per ever seen before. The lower end was
cot off flat, while tbe top waa beautifully
rounded. Then he took some paint and
little brushes, and painted the top in
curious designs of green, and gold and
red. When he had finished it, it waa
the most beautiful cork stopper ever
Then be pot it on his shoulder and ran
with it to the place where he had left
tbe beetle and the lizard, taking their
"Hi I hi 1" cried the two companions,
when they awoke. "Have yoa really
'No." said the truthful dwarf, "there
waa no nse of looking any longer for that
old stopper, and I have made a new one,
which, I am sure, will fit the perfume
bottle of the lady of yon castle. Let as
harry and take it to her. I am sure she
would much rather hare the new stopper
than to find the old one.
"We should think so, indeed!" cried
tbe others. And they all set off for the
When the lizard, the beetle and the
dwarf the latter carrying the stopper on
hia shoulder appeared at the castle,
they were welcomed with great joy. The
stopper was put into the lady's perfume
bottle, and it was found to tit exactly.
Then everybody cheered merrily, espe
cially the maids of honor, with their
'But:" said the lady of the caatle,"my
lost stopper has not been found after
"No," said the dwarf, "it is not found,
bat this one fits just as well, doea it
Yes" said the lady, "bat I wanted
the same one that I lost."
"Bat is not this just as pretty?" asked
the dwarf. ..
It is a great deal prettier, said the
lady, "but it is not the one. It is not
the stopper I lost, and which I hopdd to
get back." . .
"But it keeps the smell in just as well,
does it not!" exclaimed the dwarf a little
"Yes," answered the lady, "but that
does not make it the same stopper, does
"Oh. nshaw!" said the dwarf. I think
that will do just as well as the old one.
It fits just as well, and it is a great deal
prettier; and the old one can't be found.
I think everybody ought to be satisfied
with this new Btopiex, and forget all
about the old one."
So do we," said the lizard and the
beetle. . . . r . ,
"And so do wo," cri d the maids of
honor, and all the courtiers and all the
people who stood about.
"Well," said the lady, "I suppose it
will have to do. It is very pretty, and
it fits, and the reward can be paid to
these little creatures. But it is not the
same stopper, after all." "
The reward was a large golden pitcher
with engraved sides. It was too heavy
for the dwarf, the beetle, and tho lizard
tocarrj away with them, and they had
to leave it on the shelf where it stood.
But they had the satisfaction of knowing
that it was their own.
Let me go ." said the dwarf, as he
hurried away, "to finish my nap under
a toadstool. It may not be the same
toadstool I was sleeping under before;
but, if it is just as good, it will do quite
as well. I have never heard as tuneh
silly talk as I have heard this dar. If a
thing is just as good as another thing,
what difference doss it make whether it
is the same thing or not?"
"It makes no difference at ail," said
the lizard; "but some people are so par
ticular. We ought to be satisfied with
what we can get"
"Yes." said the beetle. "That is true:
and I want yoa to understand that the
handle of the pitcher is vours. The
dwarf can have tho spent, and all the
rest is mine. " Let us be satisfied."
Where shall we go this summer?
To the mountains or the seaside?
Or when shall we shut the house and
How much shall it cost?
Any rooms in which one can take a
square Continental turn round in?
How many trunks?
How many dresses?
How nesr ia the farmhouse kitchen to
voh our bucolic host eat in his shirt
Or smell of the sULle?
"Biled dinner" four times a week?
Butter weak oi strong?
Boating and bathing. Goose pond at
the front door. Twos thus lost summer?
Any other boarders?
Will the coffee cups and saucers be as
heavy and thick as last summer?
And aa badly nicked?
Will tbe beef be as touch as that of
The first great work is that vourself
