The Batcher and tho Lawjer.
A butcher, in a provincial town, called
tho other dav njon his friend, tho law
yer, to consult him njon the following
point: A lady had just been in his shop
buying a choice bit of leef for her
worthy husband's dinner. Her pet dog,
which accompanied her, forgetting his
good manners, had, either in snuffing at
or testing a nice roast, tumbled it among
the hawdust wherewith the floor was
strewn, and soiled it. His question to
tho lawyer was:
"Is this lady bonnd to pay me for and
receivo tho said roast? And if so, how
may jwyment lo enforced?"
The lawyer inquired if tho lady was a
good customor, and being answered in
the affirmative, he said:
".My advice to you, as a frieud, would
be, not to enforce payment of the 81 75
(for that was tho full value of tho roast),
luMiiiks, if vim do. von will most likely
loe tho family's custom, and that of
some of their friendi. Bnt when the
lady's husband looks in, you may take
an opportunity of mentioning tho cir
cumstauco to him in as gentle and polite
u way as you can, ami very prolwbly ho
will pay it at once."
"1 dare suy you're right; I'll just fol
low your advice, aud take tho lierty of
telling you tho lady was your own wife.
Tho lawyer gave a good natiircd laugh,
put his hand (u his jocket and paid tjie
fcl Vo. Tho butcher went awav in gnat
gb-e; for ho was proud of his shrewdness
in dutiuj the lawyer. In his exultation,
he hurried to his noighlwrs, the confec
tioner, the grocor und the ajxthwary, to
tell them of the capital joke, and gn-at
was tho chuckling of these crouie over
it, Tho butcher's dreams that night wore
pleusaut, und on tho morrow his tcmjsir
was placid and serene; ho mused of
spending tho money in treating tho gro

in this delighted mood tho postman
handed him a note. It was from his
friend, the lawyer, and contained an a
co.int: "A. debtor to D To consulta

creature, as her pretty head oiled tho col

Tho Cat's riace. In Science.
When Kcicntillo men meet for tho dis
cussion of purely noionlilW subject,
their essaya generally possess littlo in
terest for the ordinary public. This is
partly owing to tho groat number of
polysyllabic words used Itythnscioulists,
and partly to tho fact that tho subjects
selected aw not in all cases those in
which tho iMJoplo think they have a liv
ing interest. .Few caro about reading
essays on the structure of tho metatarsi
arch of tho megatherium, or listening to
dicusioim concerning tho spots in the
sun, the holes in tho moon or tho lales
style in which Saturn wears his belt. But
when science can stoop to handle such a
common object as tho cat, tho public be
comes an interested stockholder. And
own though science, loth to depart from
her usual stately methods, mav siieak of
this animal as the yWi'.t domnhctu vet
tho public consents to refrain from quar
reling as to tho more matter of termin
ology, and waits with interest to know
what science will make of tho cat.
It was long ago known that black rata
were useful in the development of tho
electric spark. Without black cats
Franklin and Morse might have remain
in a midnight of ignorance as to electri
cal affairs, aud tho network of telegraph
wiroa wiiicii now causes our city oiuoiais
such botheration might never have Won
erected. The yellow cat, tho gray Mal
tese eat, and the speckled cat have jmssod
their lives in comparative uselessness,
except in the capturing of vagabond mice
and tho sending forth of resonant noc
turnal music. But now rrofovtor ilder
brings to the front a large white Thomas
cat. Having etherized this animal and
removed the top of its skull so as to un
cover the brain, tho Pro'cssor proceeds
with a K'rics of experiments compared
with which the exe-reincs of an ordinary
circus are tame ami uninteresting. Tho
naturalists gathered at Saratoga watch
with breathless emotion us the Professor
shows what the cat will dowhoncm.va.s
of electricity are scut through varices
jxirtions of the brain. A chart was ex
hibited showiug what would hapcn when
cvrtaiu organs were thus brought into
activity. When spot number ono was
stirred up the cat unconsciously ad
vanced its hind log as if to kick", and
when tho current was passed through
sj)ot number two similar demonstrations
wore olcrvcl in reference to one of the
front logs. Scleral other evidences of
the connection of the brain with the
kicking aud scratching apparatus wore in
duo course observed with groat pleasure
by the naturalists, the cat being all the
time happily unconscious of tho aid he
was rendering to the cause of science.
But it was not until the scientists came
to the sjot marked nuuiticr nine that
Thomas did his best. On the proper
application of the electric current to this
spot there was a prompt and vicious ojksh
ing of the jaws. The mouth yawned w ide,
like a chasm. Tho tail bunched out to
a diameter greatly in oxcess of that ex
hibited by a restful Thomas cat. With
irritated 'nostril aud flashing eye and
quickened lip, tho cat spit and screamed
and yowled, as lio had doubtless yowled
ami scrcaniisl ami spit many and many a
time when with others of "his race en
gaged in concert jwrformances on some
body's buck shod. It was the work of
onlv a few moments to tnku the other out
of tins cat, tix the top of his skull neatly
on his head and sew up his far. Con
scious by this time that he had paid a
vnlned tribute to science, and at no great
personal inconvenience to himself, ho
walked away and sought refreshment.
Both tho cat and his observers should be
well satisfied with this proceeding. The
fact is now well established that tho mo
tions and practices of cats can 1 regu
lated, and many of the objectionable fea
ture of their midnight prowls modified
to such an extent that the cat will no
longer 1k such an unpopular animal as
in the nights that are past. All that is
necessary is to attach a battery and a
wire to each cat who goes out for the
cvoning. A small battery, which the cat
can wear suspended from a collar around
his neck, will answer every punose, a
only a weak electric current is required.
The wire must terminate at tho part of
tho head which is nearest to tho portion
t the brain to bo uiieruted uiwn. If a
t is desired simply to scratch in the
V "den with one or loth hind logs, th
location of the terminus of tho wire can
bo so arranged. If it is desired to make
a gentlo mowing so as to attract othor
cats, with a view of having soniobodv
shoot them or fire torpedoes at them, tho
projHir shifting of the apparatus will lw
a matter of easy practice. But if some
mischievous inmate of a boarding house
want a nocturnal demonstration of great
jKiwer, lot him rig the wire so as to drive
the current into "number nine." The
yowling and ether warlike ileruoiistrr
tions which will follow will 1m sufilcio
to keep tho neighlwrhood lively t
night, and to fill tho lack yards.in tho
vicinity with lootjacka, ink bottles, soap
cups and other misdirected missiles.
Thus is the cat mado tributary to sci
once. Tho professor further says that
cats will answer for brain experiments
overy purjMso tliat has heretofore been
served by tho nse of human lnxlies. All
that is necessary is to freeze tho cat solid
'and to cnt him up into sections. Tho
nights aro not yet cold enough for this,
but they will bo in a few weeks. Let tho
Iwttery 1)0 adjusted on tho cat so as to
muko him howl. Then let him lw turned
out of doors when tho thermometer is at
zero. It may bo that with the freezing
cat wo shall also have a scries of frozen
howls. These can lx) hung up all winter
and thawed out when wauled for musical
effect, or for further demonstrations in

liurdclt, writing from Canada to the
Jliirlinifton Huuttye, says: One morning
I walked out by myrclf. All along the
marsh roads tho farmers were buiy mow
ing and turninc their hay. A couple of
regularly orduint-d tramps, idle and aim
less as myself, and much better anpntiti

along In tlielr lounging wake. Presently
tho voice of a format camo over tho swcot
Tho tramps halted, "Hallo yourself!"
shouted ono of them.
"Ho you wont to hire?" yelled tho
Judge of my astonishment when both
tramps chorused back :
Wall, I thought, they aren't American
trumps anyhow, or they wouldn't disgrace
the profession In this way. But I stood
still to llslcii mill watch, for it was an un
usual sight two tramps going to work.
"Then come over hero 1" yelled tho
farmer, ami the two fellows sprang over

wanted work mid meant business. Thu
farmer stood still, leaning on his pitch
ork, gazing intently nt my motionless
figure. Presently his voho broke tho
silence oiico more: , ,
"Don't that other fellow want to hire,
too V" he yelled. , ,
Tim two t mini's turned and ghinrod nt
iim for my reply. I shook my hoiidwnlly
but firmly, and moved on, without wait-,

die, but ho novor works.
