i: What's pretty warm? growled
the man in the corner.
cWhy, the -weather.'
"What weather? more ruflly
'Why," the man with thin
clothes said, looking as though he
wished he hadn't begun it. 'lhis
"Well," aid the man in the cor
ner, -'how's this weather any dif
ferent from any other?"
The man with the thin clothes
looked nervously at the dumb mule
and said, "t was warmer.'
"How do yon know it is?" asked
the man in the corner.
The other man began to wish he
was well out of it, and said he sup
posed it was; he hadn't heard how
-'Isn't the weather the .same
cvciywhere?" savagely demanded
the man In the coiner.
" "Why no,' the man with the
thin clothes replied, wishing to
goodness he had a newspaper to
hide behind: "no, it's warmer in
somo places and in some places it's
"What makes it wanner in some
places than it's colder in others?"
i emorselessly pursued the man in
"Why,' the man with the thin
clothes said piteously, "the sun,
with the effect ol the sun's heat.'
"Makes it colder in somo places
than it's wanner in others?" roared
the man in the corner, iudignantly.
"Xever heard of such a thing."
"Xo," the man in the thin clothes
hastened to explain. "I didn't
mean that. The sun makes it
"Then what makes it colder?'
pursued the remorseless man in the
The man irf the thin clothes
wiped the beaded perspiration from
his pallid brow, and said slowly he
guessed, "'it was the ice."
"What ice?" demanded the in
quisitor. "Why, the victim said, with
all symptoms of approaching dis
solution apparent in his tremulous
voice, "the ice that was frozen
frozen by the frost."
"Did you over see any ice that
wasn't frozen?" howled the man in
the corner in a burst of derision.
The man in the thin clothes
huskily whispered that he wished
he was dead, and said: "Xo, that
is, he believed ho didn't.
"Then," thundered the man in
man in the corner, "What are you
The man in thin clothes then j
made an effort to brace up, and
spicily replied that he was
"trying to talk about the weath-
"'And what do you know about
it?" triumphantly roared the man
in the corner. "What do you know
about the weather?"
The man in the thin clothes lost
his grip again, and feebly said he
didn't know very much about it,
that was a fact." And when he
tried to be cheerful and work in a
little joke about nobody being able
to know much about the weath-
er, the man jn the corner sat
down on linn with a tremendous
"Xo, sir! I should sa- rou
didn't. You come In this car and
force yoursell on the attention of a
Granger, and begin to talk to me
about tho weather, just as though
you owned it, and I find that you
don't know a solitary thing about

your topic of conversation; j-ou

December: 3-011 don't know why
icicles form fater m the sunlight
than they do in the shade; you don't
know why the earth giows colder
as it comes near the sun: von can't
tell why a man can be miii stiuck
in the shade; you can?r tell me
how a cyclone is formed nor how
tho trade winds blew: you couldn't
find the calm center of a storm if
your life depended on it; you
don't know what a sirrocco is, nor
where the soutlr.veit monsoon
blows; you don't know the aver
age rainfall in the Cnitd States
for the past and current 3'ear;
you don't understand the formation
of fog, and 3-011 can't explain why
the dew falls at night and dries up
in the day; 3011 don't know why a

they do about anything else in the
And the man in iho corner glared
at the timid passengers in the
South Hill car, but no man durst
answer him. And as for the man
in thin clothes, he didn't know for
the life of him whether he had a
sunstroke or an ague chill. He
only knew that it seemed about

Whenever Gerge Peck, of the
Milwaukee Sun, sees a girl kissing
her pet dog, he thinks of the
dreadful places where the dog's
nose has been during the da3',
and it makes him sick. This is a
view of it that perhaps has not
occurred to the woman who kisses
her dog, but it is certainly woithy

to the Great Western Gun Works
and put chased a smail parlor rifle,
with one thous-md cartiidges of
the smallest size, the bullets being J
about the size of a ductahoi. lie?
went to 13enon- mill pond, fr-'g.
hunting, and found a very large'
frog of the masculine gender sil-'
ting on a log just above the water.,
He shot twenty-seven times at him,
when his frogship lost his balance
and dropped over into the shallow
water. Upon taking the frog out
it was found he had swallowed
twenty-six of the bullets, catching
them in his mouth, supposing them
flies. When he went to move, the
weight of the lead carried him
overboard and when taken out he
was not dead but awful sullen.

Trsco.s, Aug. oO. A band of
unknown Apaches raided the val
ley paily last evening and is re
ported to have killed quite a number
of men, women and children,
amounting to twenty in all. They
have taken all the ranches from
Calabasas to the line and the peo
ple are coming into Calabasas for
safety. Joe's band have crossed
the line into Arizona. Tt is be
lieved it is he who is 'raiding
the settlements. Capr. Madden,
commanding at Kort Ilauachuca is
in pursuit of the fndians raiding
Santa Cruz valley. The killing of
Marlinos and family yesterday oc
curred only fifteen miles south of
the tragedies reported from Cala- j
Washington, Aug. 29. Tele
graphic advices from Brownsville
report seveniN cases of -ellow fe

commodate 00 patients with suffi
cient supplies to last two weeks.
The official icport of General
Lowe, regarding the action of tho
cavalry at Kassassin, confirms the
details already printed, lie says
that after the charge the ground
was strewn with the bodies of dead
Egyptian infantry. After praising
the gallantry of the household
cavalry, Gen. 1 .owe add: their ex
cellent behavior at all times was
on a par with it. Gen. Woiseloy
states that the enemy are now

The Theater Royal, Victoria,
was torn lown lately. This is the
last of the old Hudson fiav com

here and there and a map was pre

Hudson Hay company began to

to 100. Early fn 1S5S came, the
discovery of gold on the Fraser
