. How Gordon Settled It.
The artillery evinced in their disgust
at their removal to Qunisan by refusing
to fall in, and in a proclamation they
threatened to blow the Chinese authori
ties away with the small guns and the
Europeans with the big guns. Their
noncommissioned officers, as usual, all
paraded, and were sent for by Major
Gordon, who asked them the reason why
the men did not fall in, and who wrote
the proclamation. They of course did
cot know: and on Major Gordon telling
them, he would be obliged to shoot one
in every five, they evinced their objec
tion to this proceeding by a groan. The
most prominent in this was a corporal,
who was dragged oat, and a couple of
infantry who were standing by were
. ordered to load, and directed to shoot
the .mutineer, which one did without
the slightest hesitation.
The remainder were marched back
and locked up for an hour, with the
threat that if the name of the writer of
this proclamation was not given, and if
the men did not fall in before an hour
had clupsod. the arrangement of shoot
ing one in five would lie carried out.
'At the expiration of an hour the men
all fell in, and the name of the culprit,
who had run away, was given up.
After that time we had no trouble,
the men were thoroughly cowed and the
noncommissioned officers the real of
fenders dared no longer foster sedition.
It is to be regretted, however, that one
life should have been sacrificed, but this
saved many others which' must have
been lost if a stop had not been put to
the independent way of the men.- Gor
don's "Taeping Rebellion."
Literally Death by Inches.
A Los Angeles physician told us the
other day that the most trying time in
all his experience was during the past
five weeks, when he stood hopelessly by
and saw a poor ranchman near Puente
die by inches of what is known as pro
gressive paralysis. The patient was first
affected in one big toe. . In a short time
the limb was paralyzed to the knee.
Two physicians were called, and all the
known remedies were applied to stay
the progress of the deadening attack,
but in vain. Hour by hour death moved
on its victim. The patient was propped
up in an armchair and fully realized
his condition. He awaited the end with
the coolness and bravery' of a martyr.
As the line of death crept nearer and
nearer his heart he made calculations as
to how much longer he could live. He
said, "liow it has reached the body,1
indicating the exact place . with his.
finger. In a little while he said, "It
has reached the bottom of my - lungs."
Another short wait and he said faintly,
"It has touched my .heart." and he fell
over dead. Pomona Express.
Electricity to Succeed Horses.
An electrical parcels delivery van, con
structed by a London electrical com
pany, is a compactly designed vehicle
upon four rubber tired wheels, and is
driven from a seat similar to that of an
ordinary van.. Switches are used to set
the motor in operation and to apply the
braku, while a vertical wheel and end
less worm tiro revolved to change the in
clination of the front axle and thereby
,:the direction in which the vehicle trav
els. The motor is worked by accumu
lators of suflieierit power to run from
"two to two hours and a half at a time
and at the rate of six miles an hour.
It is claimed that the use of electricity
over horse power will show an economy
as compared with horse traction, and
the company will immediately put the
van to exhaustive experiments upon the
London streets as a parcel cart. It will
carry about half a ton of goods. New
Dow a Name Originated.
About 250 years ago Jonathan Meigs
fell in love with a beautiful Quakeress.
He was repeatedly refused, but he per
severed in his suit, riding seventy miles
every Saturday across a country infested
with hostile Indians in order to pass the
Sunday near the lady at "meeting." On
. the last visit, as he slowly mounted his
horse to ride away, the Bight of his de
jected face touched the young lady, and
lifting her hand she beckoned' to him,
crying, "Return, Jonathan." The phrase
was adopted as a Christian name in the
family that sprang from the subsequent
union, and a man named "Return Jon
athan Meigs" has just died in Washing
ton. Yankee Blade.

Cruel Treatment of a Mother-in-law.
In Dantzio two weeks ago the shop
keeper Gode, from Pasewalde, was sen
tenced to eight days' imprisonment fox
frightening his mother-in-law, . Fran
Weiss, with a telegram. Gode owed
Fran Weiss money and she provoked
him by writing for it. She had once
' warned -Gode never to Bend her a tele
gram, as she "was so nervous that it
would kill her." Immediately after re
ceiving the dun from her, Gode tele
graphed back, "My wife is dead." Frau
Weiss fainted and .was ill for a week be

well, and that Gode had sent the tele
gram out of malice. Then she had him
arrested and punished. New York Sun.'

' A class of persons who hare suffered
greatly by reason of the bomb throwing
tragedy hare hitherto escaped the notice
of the press. Mr. Sage was doing a
large business in options or puts and
calls, spreads and straddles. He was
not so greatly absorbed in this specialty
as he was in 1883. He was caught in
the panic of that year and lost a good
many hundred thousand dollars, and
since then has been more conservative
than he was before. Still, this business
pas amounted to a' good many thousand
hollars some days and has afforded a
number of men an opportunity of . get
ting a living. '
' These men are typical ' Wall . street
creatures. You see them hustling here
and there, buttonholing men and whis
pering in their ears. They are tireless.
They know everybody who is likely to
take a little flier. Sometimes as many
as a score or more of them used to go to
Russell . Sage every day and ask him
what he would charge for options on va
rious stocks and securities. Having got
Sage's terms, they scoured the streets.
professing to give tips, and in the course
of a week would bring in - many cus
tomers to Sage. Their usual commission
Was one-eighth oft. per cent., and the
smartest of them could make from ten
to twenty dollars a day.
They brought Sage a great, deal of
business first and last. But these men
have been sad eyed enough since the ex
plosion. . This part of Sage's" business
life is ended as much as though be had
been killed on that day, and it is a seri
ous question whether' he will ever ro
eunie it. This has thrown these scouts

An imprisoned Whale.
The people around Dark harbor, Grand
Manan, are somewhat excited over a big
whale which got into the harbor and
cannot get out. The whale ran into the
harbor on Friday, it is presumed in pur
suit of a school of herring. At high
water there is only ten feet ' of water at
the entrance, and. as the water runs in
for two hours after high tide, his whale-
ship, when he tries to get out after that,
finds the water too shallow for him.
