TABOR AKD THE DRUMMER.
When Senator Taber was on
Animals and Men who Never sec
the Kansas Pacific train going to
"Washington to take his seat, he
met a drummer who had known him
some time by reputation. To pass
the time they engaged in a game
of seyen-up. The play was even
until the close of the second game,
when the drummer received four
kings and an eight spot. A queen
was turned us. "Great God!"
said the drummer; "Mr. Dabor, I
vish it was boker. If ve vas
playin' boker, T vood bet you my
whole bun-dell." "How much is
your bundle?' asked the noble
senator from Colorado. "Dee
hundred and fifty tollars," replied
the drummer. ""Well," replied
Tabor, "If you give me the queen
which is turned, I will go you."
"Tun," said the drummer, and
Tabor picked up the queen. "Dot
ees a shnap," whispered the drum
mer, showing his hand to a man
in the next seat. "I shonld
smile," Answered the man, laconic
ally. "Vood you like to bet some
more, Meester Dabor?" asked the
commercial tourist, with an insinu
ating smile. "Yes," sa'd the
noble senator, "I have a fair hand;
I will make it five hundred dol
lars." "I haf only fifty," said the
drummer, and he made his bet
good for three hundred dollars.
"What haf you got, Meester Da
bor?" "Four aces," answered
Colorado's favorite son, showing
the fatal one-spots. The drummer
was perfectly paralyzed, and was
unable to speak while the noble
senator stowed the pot in his togs.
Slowly drawing a cigar from his
pocket, Colorado's favorite was
about to light up and withdraw,
when the drummer recovered h:s
sense of speech. Leaning for
ward, he said: "Eet ish all right,
Meester Dabor, you haf won de
money square; but Great Godd!
Meester Dabor, vat had the k-veen
to do mit four aces?" Kansas
Tony Pastor owns and runs a
first class theatre on Broadway,
New York City, and has gathered
about liim the "best troupe of var
iety artists that could be obtained
anywhere. The company has just
completed a brilliant engagement
at the Walnut Street Theatre,
Philadelphia, and after the present
tour they will reappear in lony
Pastor's own theatre in New York
City, Mr. Pastor is the originator
of his peculiar school of character
According to the Philadelphia
Record, seventeen hundred mules
employed by the Philadelphia and
Reading Coal andiron Company
in connection with mining opera
tions toil under ground daily. At
many of the mines the mules do
not see the light of day for a year
at a time, and very often a mule
spends ten years of his life under
ground. The effect of daylight
upon mules that have been so long
in darkness is blinding. In many
instances this blindness is perma
nent, the shock of sudden light
being too great for the eyes; but
it is the general rule that the mule
staggers around in blindness lor a
few days, always, however, finding
his way to the feeding bin, and
taking true aim with his heels. At
the end of the week eyesight re
turns, he brays witli all the vigor
of lung for which his kind is cele
brated, elevating his tail as an ac
companicnt. There are, in round numbers
2,300 of these animals employed
in all capacities by the Reading
Coal and'Iron and railroad com
panies. Man-of them arc taken up
and down on the cage at the mines
daily. An officer of the company
said yesterday that, in an economic
point of view, the' are thirty-three
per cent cheaper than horses, but
that is offset by the risk run in
emnlovinir these animals. No
wagon boy has been thoroughly
initiated until he has felt the
weight of a mule's heel.
In the mining region, where dis
putes of almost all kinds arc set
tled by fisticuffs, the mule plays
an important part in the miners
training for battle. lie approaches
the mule, which seems to be sleep
ing, and gives him a few taps on
the rump with his bare knuckles
as a reminder that he is wanted to
take part in a sparring match. The
mule responds, the blows are
parried, and the sturdy miner gets
in one or two from the shoulder
which knocks the animal out. of
timc; the latter retiring with
backed ears and looking deeply
humiliated. A number of gentle
men in this city, prominently
identified with the anthracite coal
trade, who have been practical
miners, relate this as an actual
We want a religion that softens
the step, and tunes the voice to
melody, and fills the eye with sun
shine, and checks ' the impatient
exclamation and harsh rebuke a
religion that is polite, deferential
to superiors, courteous to inferiors,
and considerate to fnends; a re
ligion that goes into the family,
and keeps the husband from being
cross wlifn the dinner is late, and
keeps the wife from fretting when
he soils the newly-washed floor
with his muddy book?, and makes
him mindful of the bcraner and
door-mat; keeps the mother patient
when the baby is cross, and
amuses the children as well as in
structs them; cares for the serv
ants besides paying them prompt
ly; projects the honey-moon into a
harvest-moon, and makes the happy
home like the Eastern fig tree,
bearing in its blossom the glory of
the ripened fruit. We want a re
ligion that shall interpose between
the ruts, and the gullies and high
ways of life, and the sensitive
souls that are traveling over

singing, and has made himself im
mensely popular, having realized
by his talents a large fortune.
The writer of this article met
Mr. Pastor recently at the Bing
ham House, in Philadelphia, and
found him as genial in private as
he is amusing before the public.
Dunne: our conversation I inquir
ed as to his physical health, and he
replied that, notwithstanding the
strain upon him in the discharge
of his professional duties, it was
excellent. He had occasionally
severe pains, either the result of
rheumatic attaeks or colds, but
any complaints of that character
never troubled him long, as he
had found out a remedy for all
1 :h annoying affections. I asked
jim what the remedy was, and he
replied, "St Jacobs Oil." I learn
ed from Mr. rastor that he consid
ered the Great German Remedy an
excellent preparation for the cure
or relief of rheumatibm, and that
it was about the only thing used
among professinal people for that
distressing complaint. He took
bottles of it with him whenever he
.went traveling, and would not be
without it, and knew that it was
very popular with a number of
members ot ins own company, .n.
conversation held subsequently
with various members of the
organization revealed the fact that
St Jacobs Oil had been perrorm
ing most invaluable service for
them in the- way of curing them
oE rheumatism. Nearly every
artist in the troup used it, and was
enthusiastic in its praise, and the
writer was really forced to the
conclusion that Tony Pastor was
certainly in luck in having so Valu
able an article known and em
ployed in his inimitably good
company of performers, for it en
abled every one to be always in
his place, thus insuring comfort to
the management and genuine
satisfaction to the public. Tony
Pastor would certainly be in
trouble without St. Jacobs Oil.
At least, other managers whose
artists have been temporarily un
supplied, have noticed the differ
ence oetween St. Jacobs Oil in
stock and St. Jacobs Oil out of
stock among the mdmbers of
tfewr companies. 2V. T. Clipper.
The heart has memories that
never die; the rough and tumble
of the world can not obliterate
them. Feeble and palsied age,
trembling on the brink of the
grave- has them when everything
else has lieu away and been .or-1
gotten. They arc the memories
of our boyhood's home, the
home where we were born,
the. yard with its wealth of roses
and flower decked vines, the lilac
bushes where the robins made
their nests each spiing, paying
their rent in songs, we have often
dreamed of but never heard of af
terwzrds; the old elm and swing,
where the children used to play;
all the time the mother sat by the
window, her face gleaming out oc
casionally through the folds of the
dainty muslin curtains, and the
old house with its queer corners
and nooks, and the neat, tidy
chambers where we used to dream
of cloudless skies, sunny hours,
moments of bliss and glorious hap
piness, which now only linger in
the memory of them. Neither
changes nor time, neither distance
nor distances, can ever efface or
blot from the heart those memories
of the spring time of our lives.
