NAMING THE BABY.
iAwanlt to Decide Whether tne Itlsrht
Belonsi to tbe Father or Mother.
The question as to whether the nam
ing1 o the baby belongs, as a matter of
right, to the baby's father or to the
baby's mother is raised in a queer lawsuit-originating'
in EastkLU, in the
heart of the Catskill mountains, re
ports the Albany Law Journal. The
plaintiff is Ole Halverson, a Swede, who
cultivates a small farm on the moun
. tain side. He has sued for damages
Eev. J. G. Kemerton, a German Luth
eran minister of the same place, and the
pleadings set forth the following- state
of facts: Mr. and Mrs. Halverson have
a son of tender years. The former de
sired that the boy should be called Os
car, after the present monarch of Mr.
Halverson's fatherland. Mrs. Halver
son dislikes the -name Oscar and was
determined that the baby should not
be burdened therewith. Mr. and Mrs.
Halverson took the baby to the clergy
man to be christened. -
Mr. Halverson requested the minister
to name the child Oscar, but Mrs. Hal
verson had already talked the reverend
gentleman over, and to Mr. Halverson's
surprise and indignation the boy was
not christened Oscar, but something
else, whereby Mr. Halverson suffered
serious disappointment, loss of author
ity in his household, laceration of feel
ings, etc., for which he prays damages.
The clergyman's defense is that he
christened the child in accordance with
the wishes of the mother, whose rights
in the premises he considered para
mount. The case brings up a novel
question in jurisprudence, the decision
of which will be regarded with interest
in thousands of families -- throughout
the land. ... ,v.
IN LAMPPdST LETTER BOXES.
Hot Many Th'tnaa of Value Found
There Dead Mice Dropped In.
"Ever find things in the boxes?" was
asked of a post office collector who was
taking the letters from a lamppost let
"Some,but not such an everlasting-lot.
either," was the reply, says the New
York Sun. "A thief fleeing from
his pursuers once dropped a watch
in a lamppost letter box, so that it
would not be found irpon his person nor
.along the line of his flight; but watches
are riot commonly found in lamppost
' "Once when I came up to a letter box
I found standing by it a policeman and
a woman. The policeman said that the
woman had dropped a doliar bill into
the box between some letters and she
wanted to get it back. The rules of the
post office require that anything that
may be found in the boxes shall be
turned in at the post office; the loser
-must apply for it there. If I had found
any money in this box I should have
been compelled to turn it in. But there
wasn't any money there; the lady must
Tiave lost it or have left it somewhere
"As a matter of fact not many things
of value are dropped into lamppost let
ter boxes. Uptown you find a dead
mouse in a box occasioallj', but that's
about all. Children put the mice in tlie
box they And a dead mouse in the
street and think it's funny to put it in
a lamppost letter box."
CAN SEW UP HEART WOUNDS.
They Are Not the Ivind Made ly a
Maiden's Glcncco, Cither.
Can prompt surgical aid pave the life
of a man stabbed through the heart?
It has always been held that any at
tempt to operate directly upon the
heart was worse than foolish, and that
to sew up a lesion in the heart prop
er without killing the patient would be
an absolute impossibility, says an ex
change. Yet Dr. Rene, of Frankfort, Germany,
at a meeting- of the surgical congress
in Berlin recently, reported a success
ful operation of the kind the first in
the history of surgery and produced
his patient living and well before the
assembled scientists to attest its truth.
Describing the case, Dr. Itehe said
the man had been stabbed in the right
side of the heart. He was conveyed with
great haste to a hospital and taken di
rectly to the operating room. The sur
geon laid bare the heart in a few 6ee
onds and found a wound in the right
side of the organ. He sewed up the or
ifice and applied general treatment for
arrestinpr hemorrhage. The heart
worked violently during the operation,
but the commotion of the organ grad
ually subsided, and in due time the
wound healed and the patieat re

Penates were the gods who attended to
the welfare and prosperity of the family.
They were worshipped as household

A NEW WESTERN IDEA.
Glrls Who Give Gold Model of Their
l.tttle Fingrera to Their Betrothed.
"Do girls here give gold models of
their little fingers to their fiances?"
asked the western girl of the Gotham-
lte, reports the New "iork Sun.
"Heavens, no!" answered the Goth-
amite.' "It seems to me that that is
rather a grewsome souvenir."
"Not at all." . answered the western
girl; "it is decidedly dainty, and I'm a
little surprised that New York is so far
behind the times. The fad started in
this way. When the daughter of one
of our big western politicians was 6ix.
months old he had a model of her little
finger cast in gold. Around the little
dimpled digit is a ring of turquoise,
which is her birth stone, and it makes
alovelycharmforher betrothed's watch
chain. He valued it so much that it
set other men to thinking, and the re
sult is that as soon as a girl wraps' one
of these chaps around her own little
finger sufheiently for a proposal to fol
low he immediately insists upon a gold
facsimile of the flesh and blood orig
inal. It is a pretty conceit, and is be
ing followed by every westerner who
is in subjection to somebody 2ttle
