n Accident That lie fell tho Protector

C. H. Firth, in an artielo on Oliver
Cromwell's association with horses, says
in Mnomillan's Magazine:
'As Cromwell roso in power and rault
his lovo of horses began to bo more con
spicuous. When ho started from Lon
don in 1040 to reconquer Iroland, ho
went forth in that stato and cquipago as

tho Spanish embassador took his Jcavo
of tho lord protector, Cromwoll sont

horses'" to convoy him to and from
WhitehalL "Certain it is," adds tho
narrator, "that uono of tho English
kings had over any such."
Tho protector- was not mnch or a
whip, however. In 1C54 tho Count of
Oldenburg sent Cromwell a present or
six horses, and tho protector's anxiety
to make trial of their quality led to his
well known pdventuro in Hydo park.
On Friday, Sept. 29, ho went -with Sec
retary Thnrloo and soma of his gentle
men to tako air in tho park, ordered tho
six horses to bo harnessed to his coach,
put Thnrloo insido of it and undertook
to drivo himsolf. "His highness," said
letter from tho Dutch embassador,

time, but at last, provoking those horses
too much with, tho whip, they grew un
ruly, whereby his highness va3 flung
out ef tho coach box upon tho ground.
His foot getting hold in tho tackling,
ho was carried away a good whilo in
that posture, but at last ho got his foot
clear, and so camo to escape. Ho was
presently brought home, and let blood,

Tom Fitch of Nevada wa3 a bright

would resort to almost any means to

ilr. Sharon was in his private office.
Breaking the seal of tho envelope, he
found the speech and read it through,
together with a note from Fitch, in
forming him that unless ho was paid
$o,000 ho would deliver that speech in

Onco upon a timo tho daughters ol
Thackeray saw that good man thorough
ly and heartily angry angry to the
point of profanity. It was during theii
Italian journey, when they wero re
turning to tho, ship in Genoa harbor aft
er a day on tho shore.
"Wo had to bo on board at a certain
time," Mrs. Ritchio says in her Mac
millan paper, "so that we engaged a
carriage and drovo quickly to tho quay,
whoro tho convicts, clanking in their
chains, wero still at work. A boat was
found, rowed by somo sailors, who cer
tainly did not wear chains, but who
wero otherwise not vory unliko those
industrious convicts in appearance. The
bargain was made, wo all fivo entered
tho boat, and a3 wo wwro getting in "we'
could sco our great snip in tho twilight,

" 'They aro signaling for us,' said
ono of our companions. 'Wo shall soon

"Wo had pulled somo 20 strokes from
tho shoro by this timo when suddenly
tho boatmen left off rowing. They put
down their oars, and one of them began
talking volubly, though I could not un
derstand what ho said. 'What's fo bo
done?' said ono of tho young men to my
father. They say they won't go on un
less wo givo them CO francs more, ' and
ho began shaking his head, and remon
strating in broken Italian. Tho boat
men paid no attention, shrugging their
shoulders and waiting a3 if they were
determined never to row another stroke.
Then tho steamer sent up two more
rockets, which roso through tho twi

relief, tho men seemed frightened; they
took to their oars again and began to

it was a well known trick tho Genoese
boatmen wero in tho habit of playing

A Bad Beginning..
Hero is a story told by a city curate,
to whom the experience happened on
tho occasion of his first wedding. The
rector had told him to bo careful to fill
up tho register with the correct ages of
the bride and bridegroom. The cere
mony having been gono through, tho
happy couple, who wero of. mature- age,
adjourned to Jho y entry to dgnfthojjjM:-;
istex. a. - "-
fgavuisFBi occ3 as uy, uat xiui uriuu,
with tho moucsty natural to tee sax,
merely said she was of fall age, while
when remonstrated with she pertly told
tho curate that it was not tho first time
she had gono through tho ceremony, and
sho meant to insist upon her rights.
Finally, as tho brido remained ob
duratc, the bridegroom, thinking to put
matters straight, told tho curate tho age.
Far from serving as tho oil on tho wa
ter?, tliis only made matters worse, for
the brido flew into a passion and insist
ed upon tho bridegroom telling her how
he knew her age.
"I looked at year family Bible, my
dear," was tho quiet rejoinder,
"And what right had yen, pray, to
tako such a liberty before we wero mar
ried;" And tho two, who had came to
church as affectionate as a pair of turtle
doves, left in a pet. Tho curato who
was responsible is still wondering what
was tho final upshot of this unfortunate
incident. London Tit-Bits.
Not So Easily Deceived.
It is laughable and sometimes sad,
too to sco tho devices adopted by the
peoplo who tako a pitcher or a can to
tho saloon for beer.
A man has no way to hido it, and ho
is generally tho most sensitive on tho
subject. Sometimes ho will put it in a
paper. Often ho will tako out a largo
bcttlo and stuff it in his pocket, and I
saw oao man hido a pitcher with his
broad brimmed hat and saunter away
from a saloon bareheaded.
Women uso their aprons as covers,
though I never observed ono yet who
didn't make her errand all tho mcro
conspicuous by this means.
Ouo servant girl placed a can of beer
at tho foot of a baby's perambulator and
covered it with a shawl, and I expected
tho amber fluid to scatter in all direc
tions. I knew of ono woman who used tc
send oat a tin can marked "milk"
often tho stage fashion of laboliug poi
cons, liquors, etc but I don't think it
over deceived any one. New York Re

BUYING 'PRECIOUS STONES.
Somo of the Valuable Genu and What
They Axe -Hade Of.
Buying jewels is as hazardous as bay
ing horses, and could anything possibly
bo morb risky than tho latter? White
sapphires have occasionally been sold as
diamonds, and as proof that white topaz
may easily bo confused with them ona
has only to recall tho fact that tho lar
gest diamond in tho world, tho Bragan
za, belonging to tho crown of Portugal
and valued at 58,000,000, is by many
considered to bo only a topaz. Carbon, .
in a pure crystallized state, is in every
color of the rainbow, red, orange, green, ,
blue and even black, and occasionally
the colored arc as valuable as a brilliant
of tho samo size.
Tho jewels next in hardness to the
diamond are tho sapphire and the ruby,
called by experts corundum, or crystal
