Then are many households which one
year ago cplebrated .ho festive season
as unbroken families, which have since
been visited by death. There were
then futhi'rs and mothers who rpjoiced
with their children upon thp return of
this holiday, who tilled their stockingR
with gifts and their hearts with gaiety
that have since passed from the family
circle to tlfri family burying place.
Children, too, have passed away to that
place which Santa Claus never visits
and where Christmas trees never bloom.
Seats have been left vacant by Idndred
and loved ones who during the piesent
year havo paased away to "thnt land
from whose bourne no traveler re

not been the only unwelcome visitor iu

mother. I have seen many instances
of his cliarity, One night I was with
him in his private office at the Albany
capitol. It was after ho liaj been
elected President. He was opening his
mail, and many of the letters contained
requests for alms. I saw Governor
Clevpland answer fully half a dozen of
these by enclosing 85, $10, and at one
time a $20 bill In an envelope with a
kind word, and Bending it to the beg
gar. Uno case was especially touching.
It was that of an old man in southern
New York who had lost his horse by
death. Ho had a little garden patch
of a farm, and this horse was the sole
means of making a livelihood upon it.
He had raised some money by contri
butions from his neighbors, but still
lacked enough by $20 to buy the horse
which was to serve as the support of
himself and his gray-haired wife. Some
of the neighbors had heard of Clevp.
land's charity, and had suggested that
he write to him and ask him for help.
from the tenor of the letter you could
see that tile old mari.was very proud
of its composition and handwriting.
He said that he bad written it himself,
wjth his ovu hand, and the appeal
throughout was that of a simplo-mind-ed,
unsophisticated, child like person.
Cleveland's eyes tilled with tears as ho
read it, and he put a $20 bill in an
euvelcpo snJ sent it to him with a few
kind word. I have no doubt, con
eluded this man, but that President
Cleveland is giving away a great deal
of his salary in charity. If he does so
you may be sure that no ono outside of
the White House will know of it."
ill I'rgenl Riqncifl,
A nobby and snobbish milord of
British extraction traveled ,from Big
Horn with us and Abe Idleman on the
stage coach. Milord was exclusively
exclusive. He would not lie sociable,
and spoke to no one pxcept the two
"John Henry servants he had with
him, and was-altogether as unpleasant
as his snobln'shness could make him.
At a dinner station were a loS of jolly
cowlmyir on a lark, and one of them
"ti eating" everybody, asked the Eng
lishman to drink.
Of course milord haughtily refused.
Tho cowboy displayed a dangerot's
looking six-shooter, and very impres
sively insisted on his drinking. "But
I cawn't, you know; I don't drink, you
know," was milord's reply.
Mr. Cowboy Irrought the muzzlo in
close proxi.nity to the knot in which
milord's brains were supposed to lie
hidden somowhere, and then he said
he'd drink he'd take soda water, you
"Soda water nothin'," said Mr. Cow
boy. "You'll take straight whinky.'1
"But, aw, this American whisky, I
cawn't swallow it, you know."
"Well," said the cowboy, "I'll make'
a hole in the side of your head so that
we can pour it in," and he began to
draw on milord, and milord said: "Aw,
that'll do; I'll drink it.''
Then the cowboy invited milord's
servants to drink,' which horrified him.
"They don't drink, you know," be muc!.
"Well, we'll ee whether they do or
not," said Mr. Cowboy. "Tbn chances
are you don't geve 'em an 'lioppurtuni
ty.' Come up here, you fellows, and
guzzle, "and the two John Henrys, with
a little show of reluctance, but reul!y
glad to drink, came up, anil the cow
boy passed a tumblerful of torchlight
procession whisky for milord, and the
servants poured for themselves.
Then' the 'cowboy made the .i'jhuj
Henrys clink glasses with milord anil
all drank, and there was great fun

trifling scratch; the mother' in turn
transmitted tho peculiarity to her son.
Idiosyncrasies belong to the" individ
ual, not to the specie's. Zimrfiorraan
cites the case of a whole family upon
whom coffee acted like opiifrri while l
opium had no sonsible effect whatever
upon thorn. Longovity in &H inherit
ance, it is said of a saddler whose
grandfather died at 112, hid dth'er at
113 and ho himself at 113, when the
father was asked by Louis XIY what
ho had done to prolong life: "Sire,
since I was 50 I have acted on two
principles: I have shut my heart and
opened my wine cellar.'' The phenome'
non of atrtvism, or ancestral influence,
in which the child has a striking re
semblance to the grandfather or grand-'
mother, and none to the father of
mother, is remarkable".
Consumption and insanity may lie
dormant for a generation, but in tho
the next one will be manifested in all
the conditions as the first. In such
cases it is said that both father and
mother transmit their organization, but
they do so in unequal degrees. It'uf
said that the offspring of an old Dialer
and a young female resembles the .
father less than the mother, and that
the reverse if the offspring of an old1
female and a young male. The case is
cited of a lady who in her 'twenty-fifth
year went out of her mind after her
accouchement; her daughter was afflict
ed in the samo way at tho sairo afg 1
and under the same circumstances'.
