A Little Lesson
Altar the purchase of Louisiana
much (peculation was rife throughout
ttis country as to the actual extent
and character of
the nowly acquired
Tagueness that en
shrouded tho west
made tbo value of
the purchase un
certain. An expe

ery Pike was ap
pointed to conduct
this expedition to trace th Mlsslislppl
to It sou re. Leaving St Louis on
Aug. 0, 1808, ht returnsd after nearly
nine months of constant hardship and
exposure, of continual danger, having
satisfactorily completed his work.
In 1800-7 ho was engaged In a geo
graphical exploration to tht western
part of the Louisiana territory, In the
course of which he discovered that
mountain In tht Rockies that is namod
after him, "Pike's Teak." His work
carried him to the Rio Grands Elver,
and having been found In Spanish -territory,
he waa captured and Impris
oned. In the war of 1812 Pike was select
ed to command an expedition against
York (now Toronto). Ills own cour
age and the admirable plans that he
had formed led to tho capture of the
first redoubt The advancing column
was baited until preparation could
b made for an attack upon tht next
redoubt The magazine of the fort
exploded, killing General Flkt and
tome of the soldiers, and closing his
career In a moment of victory.

Tht death of Mr. J. F. X. O'Brien.
member of the British Uoust of Com
mons for County Cork, Ireland, recalls
that ht was onco
sentenced by tho
British courts to
be banged, drawn
bad started that
v a s t conspiracy
known as Fenian
lim, one of the
tht British connection which bad been
put on foot since tht great rebellion
In the end of th previous century.
An insurrection broke out In several
counties In the south of Ixoland on
tht night of March S, 1607. Mr.
O'Brien at thla period was engaged In
business In Cork. IIo was already ap
proaching his fortieth year, and
seemed the last man In tht world to
bt called upon to bead a body oC
armed men. But wbtn the forces that
were callod out to meet at th tryst
lng place there was no leader of thost
who had betn expected to takt com
mand, and O'Brien spontaneously and
promptly took up the racant place,
and put himself nt the head of the
headless force. Then they started out
on their expedition, and first made f6r
some police barracks In the neighbor
hood. There was a brisk skirmish at
one of these barracks, and ultimately
the police agreed to surrender, and
O'Brion himself brought tht ladder to
tho wall of the barrack for the pris
oners to come forth. The humanity
with which h treated the connuereA
policemen 'M rometobored IjT
O'Brien's faTOr afterwards. Hla tri
umbp was short-lived! the aoldlera
came up, and O'Urien was arretted,
and transmitted to gaol. In due timer
came a series of Btate trials, and
O'Brien was convicted of treason and
sentenced to be hanged, drawn and
quartered. The aentenct was, how
erer, commuted to one of penal servi
tude for ltfo, and he spent several
years In the convict gaols of England.
When an amnesty camo he waa re
leased and returnod to business, and
likewise to revolutionary propaganda.
He was a member of tht governing
body of tbo Fenian organization. Sub
sequently, when Parnell started the
Iaud League, Mr. O'Brien's views un
dcrwent somo modification, and In
18S5, when the reduction of the fran
chlso In Ireland gave Mr. Parnell bU
first chanco of electing a large party,
O'Brien stood for a division of Mayo
nnd was elected. At a later date ho
became a bitter opponent of the Par
nell faction of tho Irish party.

Yassar girls tell a good one on an
ancient and veuerablo Instructor of
paleontology at that Institution ot
learning. From tlmo Immemorial It
had been his custom at rocltatlon to
call on tho young ladles In alphabetical
order, beginning at tho beginning ot
the alphabet each new term, aud call
lng on three pupils oach day. It did
not take tho girls very long to figuro
out Just when their turn would come,
aud neglect or prepare the lesson ac
cordingly. After many years of this
system tho professor was shocked and
grieved to find out how the young Por
tias wero taking advantage of him,
Ho spoko to tno girls soverely of tho
wickedness and folly ot such conduct
as had come to hla ears,
"Since you nro not to bo trusted,"
he added solomly, "I shall fool you by
abolishing tho old method. Hereaftec
I shall begin at tho end of the alpha,
