HORSE MEAT DAINTIES.
The latest evidence that the public
likes to bo deceived is the enormous
business transacted by a Paris meat
canning establishment. Thu products
of thlB concern put up In neat boxes,
with handsome Inbels, go nil over
Europe for consumption. Tho list of
viands ranges from roast beef to pot
ted venison, including the feather
tribe. Upon overy label Is the ab
breviation CH., In largo red letters,
which means "horse meat," the gov
ernment requiring such distinction
upon the product of roan's futlhful
beast of burden.
It 1b not alone the restaurants and
boarding houses which purchase tho
products of the cannery, but overy
grocer handles the assortment, and
investigation has shown that families
are the largest fmrchasers, and It Is
to bo presumed that their imagination
and the condiments disguise the real

HENRY WARD BEECHER'S GHOST.

host of Henry ward needier lias ap
peared to a furmer friend, and con
fined himself in his message to com
plaining that a certain coin, known
an tho "widow s ruitu, had not been
icturued to him, reminds us of an in
teresting Incident In Mr. Ileecher's
life while he was still in the Uesh.
Tho great preacher was in England,
as the story goes, and was bolng en-
tertnlned by a gentleman who believ

like to tall; with the spirit of his
father, Dr. Lyman Beechor. Mr.
Beecher replied that It would please
him Immensely. After the Bcaucti

Impressed him, nt which, with a twin
klo of his eye, Beecher responded:
Ml I have to say is, that it I de
teriorate as fust for tho first ten
years after I am dead as my father
has I shall be a stark-naked fool."
When one considers tho high and no
ble purposes to which Mr. Beecher
dovoted himself while on. earth, and
the things on which his mind seems
to run now, we are constrained to re
call this Incident. Everybody's Mag

Marriage, no one may escape in
India. It is, as death and birth, inevi

Hnalltles, marriage may como by
choice, caprice, or accident; these aro

wisdom of selection Is loft to parents.
Of course thoro are mistakes, sur

22, a very slight figure, his left eye
entirely blind, his right eye having but
one little transparent point not so big
as the head of a pin, giving him but a
glimmer of the outer world, he was
traveling by Ohio river steamer from
Cincinnati to Wheeling, W. Va. Ho
was then entirely unknown to tho
world except to the little band of cir
cuit riders among whom he had been
preaching In the backwoods for a year.
To his great delight he found on the
steamer a large number of congress

of a session. Mllhurn expected great
profit from their conversation, but
was soon shocked nt their profanity,
their gnmbling .and their drunken

coming on, they wore detained over
Sunday. At breakfast a committee of
