Charles D. and Frank Boydston, of this city, think they have discovered a method of turn ing human bodies to stone and preserv ing them forever. In the basement I of their establishment there is the body 1 of a young woman who died July 18 I last. This body sinoe it was treated by them has turned to stone, or to a sub- stance resembling it, and appears to be imperishable. In an upper room ol the establishment is another body of a woman who died August 22, wbioh appears also to have become petrified. The brothers have been experiment ing for years, but the disoovery of a process of petriflcaiton was in some respects an accident. Eight or ten months ago they began to treat bodies with a preparation which haa petrify ing properites with such encouraging resulta that they kept up their experi ments. Veteran to Have 1'reference, Washington, Deo, 18. Senator Mitchell of Oreogn, today introduced a bill to amend section 1764 of the re vised statutes.

Tbe amendment gives tho preference to all honorably dHohargert persons from tbe military or naval service without regard to reason for such dis charge, provided they have served 80 days or more iu the war of the reblelion or Hny Indian war. Mitchell support ed his bill with a brief speech on bis motion. It was referred to the commit tee on civil service retreuohmert. Sternberg's Iluudimen Withdrew.

John (ia.zollo, the night engineer at tho City Hall, has been suffering from toothache for some time, and has been telling his friends that he intended to have the acher jerked out as soon as he could screw his courage up to the point. Ou the night in question his tooth ached so badly that be could hardly hear the wind blow. He was desperate. Itor rowing a gum overcoat from one of the policemen about the police station, he started Just as u funnel-shaped cloud was scudding along. He reached the corner of Sixth and Jefferson streets and was about to turn the cor ner, when a gust of wind struck him and lifted hlni off bis feet. Ho might have been carried over to the court house yard and drowned in the foun tain but for his presence of inliid in grabbing the Iron railing that runs around the steps leading down into the basement. He clung there for a mo ment with the wind right 111. bis face. He turned his head, and as he did so there was a sudden Jerk that dislodged his hat and fairly unraveled bis neck tie. Then there was a lull, and when he crept back into tlie station-house he made the startling discovery that the aching tooth was gone. The wind had pulled it. He tells the story him self, and If it is not true Mr. (iiiz.ollo has grossly deceived mo. Louisville Commercial. To See Them Is to Covet Them, Major Worden San Franoisoo, Deo. 17.

The resolution, after reait ing Maceo's assassination and Spanish cruelties iu Cuba, says the president having failed to carry out the wishes of the people, the honor of the United States ia at stake, and history gives no precedent on which to base a hope that the Spaniards will consent to compli ance with civilized warfare. The president is directed to express severe condemnation of Spanish meth ods of warfare, especially the murder of Maceo; recognize the independence of Cuba and demand of Spain the with drawal of all troops from Cuban soil. money without hindraueo frcm war rant holders.

A Los Angeled correspondent of the Chicago Tribune furnishes a lively de scription of a wildcat bunt, as he says the sport Is followed 111 southern Cali fornia. A company of people, men and women, with a pack of eager dogs, have chased a cat till It has taken refuge in ti sycamore tree. One after another the hunters come up, on horseback, of course, while the dogs sit in n circle about tlie tree, making iniksle. Now and then one of the younger dogs makes n frantic nttempt to climb the tree. The cat, meantime, Is sixty feet perhaps above the ground, crouching on n big limb, his cyi-s bla.ing green anil yel low, his ears twitching, and his short tail moving back and forth. "Now, ladles and gentlemen," says the huntsman, 'form yourselves In a circle about tlu tree and give the dogs full play, and don't shoot. The lioiinil.i have worked for the cat, and they' de serve it. Again, it Is the most humane way of looking at It; the dogs will kill the cat sooner than a bullet " With this little hpoei h delivered for the benefit of the exc';able tenderfoots in the hunt, the ho!"es are arranged in a big circle about the sycamore, and a young mail who wishes to leard the lion in his den crawls slowly up. As he draws nearer, the cat looks around In desperation. The tnil twitches more nervously. Glancing down at the opeii-niouthed dogs, then nt the approaching human enemy, the xior animal is evidently considering the chances. Nearer the climber conic, until man and cat ga.c Into each other's eyes scarce three feet apart. I-nr a moment the pusot hesitates; then, turning quickly, he Hteadics him self, and with u mighty spring Is In the air. Down he goes fifty feet, bounce among the bush, a mass of springs, steel and rubber, and Is away. He has landed just beyond the circle, anil a horse has dashed aside to let lilin puss. followed by the pack ln full cry. They go like a Hash of light, a roaring, crash Ing sound. A scream, and puss Is again visible, perched upon the limb of nnoth er big syi-iimore. The same thing Is repeated ngnln and again, till the women repent, and cries of "Let him go!" "Poor puss!" are heard above the baying of the dogs that an' growing fairly mad with unappeased ferociousness. Again the young man faces the cat this time fully sixty feet from the ground. Surely If ever nn animal had won Its liberty this one has. lint the game Is up. The dogs are spreading, and as out Into the air the cat leu iu magnificent form they collect. Down he comes like a gigantic flying squirrel, with legs spread fur opart, the soft, cushion-like pads ready for a re bound. Like a flash he cuts the nlr, strikes the ground nt the writer's feet, and la enveloped lu a whirlwind of fero cious hounds. The agony of the cat Is over In a sec ond, but tbe dogs fight, wnr and strug gle until each has vented his rage upon the Inanimate skin that Is now borne aloft as a trophy. Not a few of the dogs Keeping a Weathercock.

"Swallowed the east wind?" said the squire. "Why so, Samson V" Why, how else could he go on as bo do? From morning to night, from one week's end to another.

And with that, squire. away he goes out of the place like a mad .March hare!" "Well done, Samson!" said the squire; "well done!
