Vt hallo Captain.
We had been in New Bed ford ten or
twelve days, and had selected our par
ticular sea captain and listened to half
a dozen of his yarns without betraying
the slightest evidence of doubt of any
statement, when a stranger from the
far West arrived and rather forced hU
presence upon our coterie. We were
on the back veranda of the hotel, five
or six of ns and the old whaler, and
the latter had just started in on a story,
when the Westerner came out of the
smoking room and drew up a chair.
Now go ahead. Captain," he
brusquely observed, as he lighted a

after an uneasy loo.' around. "I was

"Then I am with you. 1 didn't know
but you were whaling on the lakes.

"It was off the coast of Brazil, " re

"That will do. but it is a long coast.
Go ahead, and never mind which waj
the wind blew."
"We were drifting, as I snid." con

lump in his throat, "when the man at
the masthead called "

stranger, "but if all hands were trying

Goethe and His Doppelganger.
Goethe, when a young man, was
resting by the roadside on one occa
sion when he observed the figure of a
middle-aged gentleman approaching
him on horseback. 1 here was some
thing in the features and general ap
pearance of the stranger that attracted
his attention in a marked degree, for
the face and figure seemed to be his
own, although older and more devel
oped. In their costume, however,
there was no similarity whatever, for
while the stranger wore the robes of a
councilor of state, the young poet
wore the ordinary dress of civil life.

A LARGE PENDULUM.

it Atlanta, G;u It is a heavy, pcar-
snapeo. piece oi iron, auacnea to a
brass wire forty-two feet long. The
upper end of the wire is pivoted in a
steel point, w hich rests on the centre
of a steel plate, so as to cause the least
possible friction. The swinging of the
pendulum gradually describes a circle
an the floor in a direction following the
Jim, showing in this that "the earth do
move." Directly under the pendulum
is a large circle divided into twenty-
tour parts, ot fifteen degrees each, to
sorrespond with the hours of the day.
The north pole fa placed directly under
the pond uium, and the meridians of
longitude meet there. The parallels of
latitude make smaller circles inside
the first. Dr. J. S. Hopkins, president
A the school, who made and put up
the pendulum, performs the experiment
is follows: The iron is brought to the
idgeof the circle in the meridian of
Atlanta and let swing across. Appar

jnlly it traverses the circle in the di
rection taken by the sun and opposite

pendulum, not being directly ovr the
ixis of the earth, does not move- in
jxactly the same time as the sun, but
falls behind some hours a day. It
is said that if it were at the north pole,
where it would be immediately over
the axis, it would traverse the circle in
exactly twenty-four hours, and at the
the equator it would not traverse it at
all, for gravity would operate to pre

THE ARIZONA KICKER.
A l'roa;relv Journnl Whom Motto 1st
"Live and Let Live."
The lust issue of the Arizona Kicker
contains tho following interesting items:
Can't Do Tr. We have been offered
twenty-five dollars in cash and a barrel
of wild plum vinegar to publish the
record of the man who runs tho weekly
further down the street. While ther
is no doubt in our mind that he is a
bigamist, horse thief, barn-burner and
anarchist sympathizer, we know what
belongs to decency and we positively
refuse the bribe. There is too much
mud-throwing among the editors of the
West, any how. They seem to have
forgotten what is due to the position.
If one of our doctors bills a patient by
some mistake, the rest are always ready
to swear him clear. If one of the edi
torial fraternity makes a trip, the rest
a re eager to pitch into him. Itshouldn't
be so. There should be more of the
fraternal spirit more of the pride of
profession. Therefore, while we are
perfectly satisfied that the bald-headed, .
bow-legged, squint-eyed old coyote
who calls himself the editor of the
moribund dis'i-rag, eleven doors be
low, ought to be in State prison for
life, we are not going to forgot what
belongs to the amenities of editorial
Passf-d Away. "Injun Joe." as he
was familiarly called, has finally passed
in his checks, although he bung on for a
year longor than any one thought he
could. Afteraspree, lasting four weeks,
he crept into one of the A. & T. stage
coachos and surrendered to the grim de
stroyer. We always looked upon Joe as
half-wilted, but we beg to acknowledge
our mistake. In his last hours he
wrote down the fact on a bit of paper
that we owed him seven dollars bor
rowed money and that bit of paper
was left where it could not help but be
seen. The first we knew of his deatb
was w hen the coroner brought in the
note. We borrowed the money a year
ago. and as Joe had never dunned ur
we supposed it had slipped his miid.
We shall probably have to pay it, but
whether we shall do so before appeal
ing to the law remains to be seen.
Dkskkving ok Patronage. It ir
over seven months since the A. & T.
coaches were put on to connect our
town with the outside world. The
Kicker has not before mentioned the
fact, for the reason that no pass was
sent to us.r If a stage coach or a rail
road company starts' out with tho idea
that it can paddle its canoe with
out the aid of tho press, the best way
Is to give them rope. We have been
giving the A. & T. Line rope. Yester
day it threw up its hands and sent us
beautiful annual puss. The Kicker
now takes pleasure in calling public at
tention to the fact that tho A. & T.
Stage-Line Company, Limited, has
three roomy and com.)rtable vehicles
running from the post-office to Topknot
Station, on the U. P. Hood, nine miles
away, lne tare is very low, the
drivers safe men, and the speed satis
factory. It is an enterprise which de
serves patronage, and we hope the
company will iiave the support and
good wishes of every citizen of the
Don't Blamk Us. If Major Jones,
he of the taw uy hair and purple nose,
will let us tilono we shall never cross
his path. If he persists in lying about
us if ho continues to scandalize our
private character and throw mud at
our earnest efforts lo build up the
town, ho will hoar something drop with
an awful thud some day.
We want no quarrel with Major
Jones or any other citizen. We want
to live in peace, publish the Kicker at
2 per year, strictly in advance, and
feel that wo are welcomo wheuever we
drop in i.o a saloon to recuperate our
strength after exhaustive editorial
Call Us "Genf.ual." We under
stand that there is considerable dissat
isfaction around town with a certain
class because the general public has
dubbed us with the title of "General."
We refer to those "Captains," "Ma
jors." "Colonels" and "Judges" who
spend four-lifths of their time in the
grog shops and poker rooms, and the
other fifth in abusing decent citizens.
If tho public desires to call us "Gen
eral," so be it; and tha class referred
to can take it out in bitting their noses.
We have hunted up the records of
twenty-two of them, and not one
mother's son of the gang is entitled to
any thing except tho very plainest and
cheapest and meanest "Bill'' or "Tom."
They want to let our title of "General"
alone or something will occur to pain
their leeiiuffs. Uetroit t m iv.a
