The Smart Station Agent.
There is something about the agent
tit a country railway station that ex
sites both "my admiration and iny
When I go to the station for the
purpose of taking a train and find him
sitting with heels cocked up on the
table by the telegraph instrument
and his head bowed down upon his
breast with the great weight of res
ponsibility that rests upon him
when hestarts, as if he had been
shocked by some of the current
events that are flashing along the
wires and looks pained because lie is
not privileged to communicate them
to an anxious world when he rises
and yawns and goe.s to the ticket
window to communicate to some
waiting wayfarer the burdensome
knowledge with which he is supposed
to be full to overflowing, I admire
When a boarding school comes in
to cmbaik for home at vacation time,
I pity him. About forty girls chatter
ing like magpies and drowning the
voice of the telegraph with their gab
ble, is more than any station agent
c:m bear when he is getting train or
ders, and 1 pity him from the pro
foundest aorta of my heart.'
1 once knew a fair "young man whose
life was one great gob of good promise.
He had lied himself into prominence
in the community, and the people iiad
come to believe that one day, he
would be one of the most highly re
spected advocates at the bar or occu
pants of the sanctum. When he was
a mere babe, the old ladies said the
Lord had evidently intended him for
the ministry, but when he got to wan
dering away with other people's
horses and playing poker, they reluc
tantly admitted their error and ceased
to anticipate that his life would be de
voted to piloting sinners to the skies.
They then unanimously decided that
he was destined to be foremost among
the barristers and other law-evading
things, but in the very prime of his
promise he became a stipe in a rail
way station and began learning tele
graphy. His'lluent and graceful style of pre
varication soon won for him the es
teem and confidence of his superior,
and in due time, the latter could go
out on a vacant lot near the depot and
pitch horse-shoes with full assurance
that the business of the oHice would
be properly attended to and the con
fiding public kept waiting seven
hours after supper-tim-j when the
train was ten hours late, under the
impression that it would be ou hand
in twenty minutes. The young man
applied himself assiduously to his
work of self-education and "soon be
came proficient. One day, when he
had acquired the requisite knowledge
and confidence to run the road, which
was about four months after he first
entered the olliee, he sent the follow
ing message to the train dispatcher,
who called his station to give erders:
'Agent playing mumble-peg four
blocks away. Shall 1 receive? 1. U.
0." Of course he was instructed to
receive, as if there were any delay a
train would soon rush by the station
and go crashing into the" rear end of
another which had broken down be
tween that station and the next. He
did well, and that evening he re
ceived an order dismissing his supe
rior and appointing him to fill the
vacancy. I Ic was young and inex
perienced, however, and in due time
lie arose to the sublime height of
utter contempt for the public. He
strutted about like a sultan and
laughed at the anxiety of the people
to know when they might expect to
get away from the village he seemed
to own. When knowledge was want
ed, he was more ignorant than Gala
tea before Pygmalion got mashed on
her, and when no flood of intellectual
effervescence was desired, knowledge
seemed to fall from his lips like bricks
from an overturned hod. He seemed
to be master of the situation, and all
the complaints of indignant shippers
and the pleadings of a long-suffering
people could not shake him from his
impregnable abode in the heart of the
One day, a gentleman who was
managing editor of a cattle ranch in
Colorado came to the station. He
made certain inquiries concerning the
running of trains which the agent
was not prompt and obliging in an
swering, and the cow-general spoke
of him in terms that were not remark
able for their freedom from inuendo.
The young man replied in his custom
arily concise style, and in about a
fraction of a second, the atmosphere
of the room was saturated with smoke,
noise and an odor of burned powder.
The next day, his perforated rex
mains were placed in a black walnut
box and hauled away to the village
burvinj- ground, and there thev now
lie, joining their kindred dust and en
joying the other privileges and com
pliments of the season, while there m
a meek and lowly young man with
four revolvers and" a look of unutter
able woe concealed about his person
looking after the affairs of the rail
road in that village. The cow-commander
has been acquitted of any
evil intent, and carries in his hip
pocket a set of handsomely engrossed
resolutions of condolence and pro
While workmen were engaged on

and the scales, of the figure of Justice

llovr to KeducH Weight.
Do not try it. The London Field is
anxious to induce hunting men to
adopt measures to reduce their weight
for the saddle. This is our advice on
the subject. Rest assured no meas
ure will suffice which is not injurious
to health. One man will put on
weight with very little food, while
another will undermine his stability
by a reduction which appears to be
moderate. The simple but golden
rule is to cat slowly and masticate
the food taken thoroughly, so that
there may be time for the organism to
make known its satisfaction with the
supply placed at its disposal before
the stomach is overloaded. The mis
take made by hunting men and others
who, to use" a common expression,
"arc as hungry as hunters," is that
of coming home exhausted and eating
ravenously. By this haste no time is
allowed for the organic needs of the
eater to cry: "Hold enough!" It
is like emptying a whole scuttleful of
coal on the fire when it is only in
need of a few deifterously placed
lumps. The digestive organs "being
in fairly good working order, the re
pletion is not resented as it would be
by a weakly "dyspeptic," and mus
cle and fat are laid on in excess. If
we only ate more deliberately, we
should iind half ournccustomed quan
tity of food sufficient to satisfy the
most eager cravings of hunger. What
we call "appetite" ia a most mislead
ing sensation. It is only remotely re
lated to the actual demands of tho
organism. Let hunting men, and
men of all classes who lead healthy,
active lives, resolve to eat and drink
slowly. "With this single precaution
they will soon find that their tend
ency to "weigh" diminishes, while
the appetite being disciplined uncon
sciously by the formation of tho habit,
it will be needless, as it is useless, to
live by rule as regards the nature or
the quality of the food taken.
Power of Dvnamlto Shells.
Some very interesting experiments
with dynamite projectiles were made
near Washington recently, under the
auspices of tho Senate Military com
mittee. Four shots were fired with
six-inch shells with a range of 1,000
yards. The target was a perpendicu
lar ledge of solid trap rock on the
south bank of the river. The first
shell struck near the eastern margin
of the ledge, and exploded by con
cussion, shattering tho face of the
rock for a radius of boXit 30 feet, and
carrying away several tons of debris,
which were hurled for hundreds of
yards up and down stream. The sec
ond shell struck nearly in the center
of the ledge, exploding as before. It
opened a cavity ix the face of the
ledge about 2") "feet in diameter; ex
cavated a pit six feet deep. Some of
the fragments of rocks from this ex
plosion were hurled half a mile, one
piece weighing nearly twelve pounds
being thrown clear across the canal
and lodging near a farm house ad
joining the Georgetown reservoir.
The other shots were similar in their
effects. The trial is regarded as suc
cessful in every particular, and the
safety of the system of firing seems to
be assured, since the shell leaves tho
gun as safely as an ordinary powder
charged shell would do. It is not
impossible that this destructive agent
of dynamite is destined to revolution
ize naval warfare, and it is noteworthy
that the representatives of the foreign
governments havo manifested the
greatest interest in the experiments.
One of the most remarkable people
with whom missionaries have to do
are the Falashas of Ethiopia. They
are black Hebrews, about 200,000 in
number, living west of Jordan, who
have as their holy wri tings tho Old
Testament in an Ethiopic version,
and who still rigidly adhere to the
Mosaic ceremonies and laws. They
