At a recitation in ancient history, an

by the assertion that "the Egyptians were

Herman Schuster, of St. Louis, awoke
one morning to find himself dead. That
is to say, the newspapers said he was
dead and that his body was at the morgue.
Mr. Schuster went to the place men
tioned, aDd there, sure enough, found
himself laid out on a slab, dead as any
body couid wish to be. The forehead of
the corpse was exactly like his own. The
moustache likewise. The body wouldn't
vary in weight five pounds from the
weight of his own. The clothes of the
inanimate person were as much his own
as if he had worn them himself. "Vot

of Mr. Ainbaugh. The doctor turned up
the corpse's eyelids and found that the
eyes were blue. "Dot ish petter," said
Herman, with a long sigh of relief. Dot

Minnie Warren's Death.
Minnie Warren, the joungest, bright-!
est aud prittiest of Mr. Barnura's dwarfs,
died in MiddleLoro, Jttass., on luesday
eveniug in childbed. She was the young
est of a family of eight children, all of
whom except herself and her sister La
vinia, now Mrs. Tom Thumb, were of or
dinary size. When Minnie was 11 years
of age she joined the Tom Thumb troupe,
and for 15 years she traveled almost con
tinually, visiting nearly all the civilized
parts ot the globe, bhe was 40 inches in
height, and never attained a weight to
exceed 45 pounds, being considerably
shorter and more slender than Mrs.
Thumb. She was 27 years of aire at the
time of her death. To a pretty face she
added, pleasant disposition and winning
ways, and she became the fast favorite
of Mr. Barnum as well as of the public.
When Tom Thumb was married to La-
vinia Warren the general opinion was
that Commodore Nutt would take Min
nie for his bride; but the little Commo
dore had set his affections on Lavinia,
and his little heart was blighted when
General Thumb won her from him.
"Never mind, Commodore," the jovial
Barnum said, "Minnie Warren is a better
match for you. She is younger than
you, while Lavinia is several years older."
''Thank you, sir," the Commodore said,
stiffly; "I would not marry the best
woman living. I don't believe in women,
anyway." Time lessened Commodore
Nutt't grief, and he partly renewed h
attentions to Miss Minnie. But, after
his first disappointment in love, it is said
he became a fast young man, and Minnie,
like a wise young lady, discouraged his
addresses. A few years ago, Barnum
found another lilliputian, Major Newell,
who was rechristeued General Grant, Jr.,
and added to the Tom Thumb combina
tion. The Major was bright and intelli
gent, aai he and Minnie became great
triends. Aoout a year ago thev were
married, and they lived happily together
with General ihuinb and wile in Mtudle-
boro. Their last tour together was in tl
Western States, from which they recently
When Mr. iiirnum was in this city re
cently he let out the secret, which had
been closely kept by Minnie's family,
but the memory of the spurious Thumb
baby led many to regard the story as a
Barnum hoax. But the New Haven
women soou discovered the purchase ot
little bits of muslin, lace and flannel by
memoers ot tne Warren household, and
secrecy became impossible. A ladv
friend who visited the Warrens described
the little garments as "too comical for
anything." DjIIs' patterns were used
ana uie nuie sups ana wrappers were
made one-sixth of the size of ordinary
oaoies. jvirs. jxeweu is described as
looking forward to maternity with sjreat
anticipations of happiness and no mis
givings. Her husband, however, had
gloomy forebodings, and expressed the
greatest solicitude. Her death was
great shock to her family. The child
died at birth. It weighed five pounds
and tan ounces. Four hcu.-s later the
mother died from exhaustion. Mis
xseweii s aeatn caused aeep sorrow iu
Middleboro, where she and her sister
were much loved. Much sympathy is
expressed for Major Newell, who is over
whelmed with grief. Mrs. Newell is to
be buried in Middleboro this aftrrnoon.
The announcement of Mrs. Newell's
death was received with many express
sions of regret by members of the old
Museum company iu this city. Mr.
Barnum is now with his show in Indiana.
His son-id-law, Mr. Hurd, who is full of
reminiscences of the Lilliputian family,
is in business in this city and is spending
the summer at Barnum's home in Bridge
port. A gentleman who was with Mr.
Barnum for several years says that Mjor
and Mrs. Newell were the smallest wed
ded pair that ever lived. One smaller
couple is mentioned by Marco Polo in
his travels in Tartary. They were each
25 years of age, and 12 and II inches in
tieight respectively. They married by
order of the Khan, and their fourth son
was six feet two inches in height. There
are some doubts as to the correctness of
Polo's figures. General Tom Thumb
and wife have grown corpulent in the
last few years, and neither appears so
diminutive as in their younger days.
The General has been weaLhy, but has
lived extravagantly and spent a forrune
in yachting and other sports, and pos
sesses only a moderate competence. He
is 41 years of age. Jv. Y. Sun.
Home Sickness. So common-place a
disorder as home-sickness has been made
the subject of scientific investigation.
Dr. II. lley gives it a high-sounding
name, "Nostalgia," and regards it as a
form of insanity from which grown men
often suffer severely, and of which they
sometimes die. He gives particulars t!'
his observations among the French sol
diery, where it is of very frequent oc
currence, more particularly among the
infantry. The calvary-man, he thinks,
is less liable to suffer in this way, proba
bly because he has leisure time on his
hands. It is the young foot soldeir who
is prone to pine for his native place. The
young conscript becomes gloomy a d
taciturn, loses his appetite, is fond of
solitude, and often gives way to teais.
He suffers from incessant headache, and
is unable to sleep; and after awhile, un
less he can be aroused and interested in
his surroundings, and distracted from his
dreams of home and friends, gradually
become the victim of general prostration,
followed by delirium and sometimes by
death. Dr. Hey believes that children
do not otten sutler in this way, nor do
very old persons; and women are le33
liable to it than men.
Just before the horses were called on
for the race at Beacon Park, a nasty look
ing tramp, with a pack on his back,
came ambling along among the' stables
in a dogged sort of way, and inquired
the way to Lowell. Some joker oblig
ingly pointed him down the track, along
which he suspiciously began his journey.
In due time he reappeared at the point
from whence he set out, still slouching
along and looking neither to the right
nor left, and started rund the course
again. After "swinging around the cir
cle" in this way three times to the intense
gratification of the spectators, a sudden
thought seemed to strike him. He
looked up, recognized the gate by which
he had entered, and rushed out into the
"wide, wide world"- again accompanied
by the cheers of the crowd.
The Springtield Republican has this
good bit of "experience :" "A good old
deacon in an up-river town was called
on recently by the leader of a prayer
meeting to tell him vhat the Lord Jesus
had done for him during the week pre
vious. ltisinc with extreme reluctance
he replied: 'Nothin' to boast on, broth
er, nothin' to boast on,' which expresses
I the views of a good many cnurcu mem
I bers, if they only dared express them."
Life in London
ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY YEARS AGO.
From Leckv's "History of England in
the Eighteenth Century" we take the fol
lowing interesting extract: Ed. Trans.
"The impunity witii which outrages
.. . , - .i- - :i i:. 1 ill
were committed in tne iii-ut m un
guarded streets of London during the
first half of the eighteenth century can
now hardly be realized. In 1712 a clu
of younir men ot the higher classes, who
assumed the name of Mohocks, were ac
customed, nightly, to sally out, drunk,
into the streets, to hunt tne passer-oy,
and to subject them, in mere wantonness,
to the most atrocious outrages. One of
their favorite amusements, called 'tip
ping the lion,' was to squeeze the nose of
their victim flat upon his face, and to
bore out his eyes with their fingers.
Amontr them were the 'sweaters, who
formed a circle rouna their prisoner, ana
cricked him with their swords till he
sank, exhausted, to the ground, the 'danc-
ing-masters,' so canea irom ineir sum in
making men caper by thrusting swords
into their legs, the 'tumblers,' whose fa
vorite amusement was to set women on
their heads and commit various indecen-

were exposed. Maid servants, as they
opened their masters' doors, were way
laid, beaten ana their laces cut. itairons
inclosed in barrels were rolled down the
steen and stony incline or enow imi.
Watchmen were unmerciiully bcuen,
and their noses slit. Country gentlemen
went to the theater as if in time of war,
accompanied by their armed retainers.
sV bishop's sou was said to be one ot the
fra isr. and a uarouet was umonjj mose
who were arrested.
This atrocious fashion passed away
but other, though comparatively harm
less, rioters were long accustomed to beat
the watch, to break the citizens' win
dows, and to insult the passers-by, while
robberies multiplied to a tearful extent.
Long after the Revolution, the policy
of the Government, was to rely mainly
upon informers for the repression of
crime, but the large rewards that were
offered were in a great degree neutralised
by the popular feeling against the class
The watchmeu, or constables, were, as a
rule, utterly inefficient, were to be tound
much more irequently in beer shops than
in the streets, and were often themselves

Fielding, who knew them well, has left a
crraDhic description of one class, 'lbey

people who are, from their want ot bodi
lv strength, rendered incapable of getting
a livelihood by work. These men, armed
only with a pole, which some of them
are scarcely able to lift, are to secure the
persons and houses of his Majesty's sub
jects from the attacks of gangs of young,
bold, desperate, and well-armed villains.
If the poor old fellows should run away,
no one. I think, can wonder, unless it be
that they are able to make their escape.'
Of others an opinion may be formed from
an incident related by Horace Walpole,
in 1742. 'A parcel of drunkeu consta

The darinjr and the number of robbers
increased till London hardly resembled a
civilized town. 'Thieves and robbers,'
said Smollett, speaking of 1730, 'were
now become more desperate and savage
than they had ever apoeared since man
kind were civilized.' i he Mayor and al
dermen in London, in 1744, drew up and
address to the King, in which they
stated that 'divers confederacies of great
numbers of evil-disposed persons, armed
wi'h bludsreons, pistols, cutlasses, and
other daDcerous weapons, infest not only

A successful business man says there
were two things which he learned when
he was eighteen, which were atterwaras
of great use to him, namely: ".Never to
lose anything, and never to lorgec any
thing." An old lawyer sent him with an
important paper with certain instructions
what to do with it. "But," inquired the
young man, "suppose I lose it what
shall 1 do then?" The answer was, with
the utmost emphasis, "You must not lose
it-" I don't mean to," said the young
man, "but suppose I should happen to?"
"But I eay you must not happen tol I
shall make no provision for any such oc
currence. Tou must not lose it?" This
put a new train of thought into the
young man's mind, and be fouud that if
he was determined to do a thing, he
could do it. He made such provision
against every emergency that he never lost
anything. He found this equally true
about forgetting. If a certain matter of
importance was to be remembered, he
, uned it down in his mind, fastened it
there, and made it stay.
