New Yob'k, April 22. Ex-President
Cleveland, who has had an opportunity
to read his views given yesterday on the
silver question, said to the reporters
on the subject' this morning:"''"! have
just read the report and it seems to me
it has been generally embellished and ex
pressions put into my mouth that were
neer uttered -by me. While some
opinions may be regarded as partly my
views upon the subject of silver coinage,
yet there are so many other expressions
credited to me that it would require
considerable weeding out before the sup
posed conversation could' be strictly
termed an accurate report."

April 22. Wheat,
Whales and Barnaetea.
Lighthouse Keeper Israel, - who was in
town a few days ago, says that the beet
exhibition of , whales occurred right in
front of the lighthouse the other day.
Half a dozen whales of from thirty-five
to forty feet in length were playing for
an hour, or breaenmg, as whalers call it.
This is running oat of the water exactly
as a fish does and falling back heavily
on the ocean, so as to thrash off tbe bar
nacles that cover their under side. It is
a flat barnacle, rayed in the gray and
White streaks from a small central hole.
The variety of barnacle coming from
colder northern waters "gets sick," in
nautical phrase, in the warm southern
waters where the whales come to breed,
and are easily shaken off by a little ef
fort. The captain said that the rights
whale never ventured into these waters:
unless heavily loaded with barnacles,
when they would be shaken ' off by
breaching. In the old whaling camp,
opposite Ballast Point, on North Island,
whales have been found so thickly in
crusted with barnacles that they have
had to be skinned on the underside be
fore a knife or spade could safely be
used to cut up the blubber. San Diega
Pussy's Way of Catching Birds.
. A lady in Cincinnati has a wonderful
cat named Dick, well known for its
sagacity. She has been in the habit of
taking crumbs from the table and shak
ing them on the ground outride, so that
the birds could feast therefrom. The
cat, meanwhile, would ambush itself,
and, at the opportune moment, pounce
upon the bird and secure a seasonable
meaL The good lady tried to break the
cat of the habit, but her efforts were of
no avail. She then resorted to other
means, but with no success. At last
she discontinued the practice of throw
ing out the crumbs for the birds. Tha
cat, seeing that its daily meal was not
forthcoming, entered the house, pur
loined a piece of bread from the table
scattered it over the ground at the ac
customed feeding place, and awaited re
sults behind a tree. Soon the birds ap
peared and the cat secured one of the
sparrows. Cincinnati Enquirer.
Gray Hair Honorable.
Next to baldness the loss of color in
the hair is dreaded, but of late years
'gray hair has become so fashionable that
this is not considered a detriment. The
fact is many put poison on their hair '
to make it change in color, and then
when gray hair goes out of fashion they
have to resort to hair dress to give it any
other color. If the hair once gets gray
it always remains so, and if this occurs
through the natural process of nature,
there is no reason to regret it, or any
thing to be ashamed of. A fine head of
gray hair is always a crown not to be
despised. If it is obtained through hard
work, mental study and thinking, it is
nof to be regretted; but if caused by
premature decay, disease or carelessness,
the owner may well regret it. Yaftkee
