A case in the Berlin police, court reports
Is a remarkable instance of the contagion
of example, ine stories of brigands which

seem to have acted on the imagination of
two boys named Oscar Bcheffner and
George May. They determined to become
t bandits, and they prevailed on several of
' their school fellows to join them. The
average age of the band was thirteen.
They inaugurated their defiance of the law
'by tMtiily pUiying truant, and then they
took reduce in the wilds of the Grunewald,

After a night passed in this fashion they
felt the pangs of hunger, and consequently

Some Funny Newspaper Bulls.
There were some good newspaper bulls
during the session all of the genuine Irish
breed. Mr. lioual Sullivan introduMd to
the house sue from an Irish paper. It was
in the form of an advertisement for a labor
er and a boy, and concluded thus: "With

An Irishman writing In The Times on
the late Baron Dowse concluded his eulo
gium: "A great Irishman has passed away.
God grant that many as great, aud who
shall as wisely love their country, may fol
low him." A Dublin paper heard that
"the health of Mr. Parnell has latterl)
taken a very serious turn, and that fears
of his recovery are entertained by hia
friends." Several English papers quoted
this without detecting Hie hull.
A Cork paper, in describing an interval
of peace in a stormy public meeting, said,

A Vnnt Race for a Bride,
A novel font race took pluce at Clintta
nooga, the prize being nothing less than
the hand uf a mountain maid, Polly An
drews, the belle of Walden'a ridge. Tom
Mitchell and John Vanleet sued for her fa
vor and she was unable to decide between
them. They, being in earnest, proposed a
duel, to wnich the girl demurred, realizing
that if one were killed and tbe other a fugi
tive she would lose both. 1
As the crucial test she decided upon a
foot race from the Tennessee river to i'alr
mouut, on the summit of Walden'a ridge,
a matter of ten miles, much of it a steeo
climb. The men started at 3 p. m.. and at
5:10 Vniileet reached the goal, a country
fifteen miuntea later. The beaten man ac
cepted the situation and Miss Polly accept

The Patter of the fUiinfrle.
Opinions are much divided as to the
eflicacy of "spanking," so called. There
are mothers who pride themselves on
"never laying a hand" upontheirshildren.
and the flat has gone forth among educat
ors that tbe teacher unable to manage her
class without a resort to corporal punish
ment aoes not ueserve to be a teacner.
Well, all can think as they please of
course, out mere are certainly times with
children and moods in children which call
for a genuine old fashioned spanking as a
means of grace. As not a few mothers
can testify from actual experience, bad
tempera and naughty ways have often been
"nipped in the bud" by a little physical
pain administered just at the right time.

Bands Mini Be Biesedtngly Skillful to
Hew the Costly Haequea of Fur.
In the summer and autumn there Is
plenty of work for seal finishers or girls
who know how to sew sealskins and other
furs. The employment of girls in this sort
of work ia comparatively recent. A few
years ago the cutting and sewing of fur
skins were mainly done by men. Some
times a man would teach hia wife or bis
daughter, but the men monopolised the
best work and earned good wages. There
Is a skin cutter now working aa a journey

tld.OUO, and yet works his regular hours.
He lies Introduced several generations of
his family into one or another branch of
Of late years the sharp competition
which has got Into the fur business aa
well as other lines of trade has led to in-,
creased employment of females as sewers.
The work is nice, and requires a good deal
of skill. The smooth, even cult,- of a lady's
new sealskin sacque is not produced with
out a good deal of patient skill aud dex
terity. Of course skina do not come per
fect. There are slight blemishes that need
to be corrected. The skillful cutter takes
a akin aud blows the hair aside until ha
can see the roots all over the akin. If he
finds a spot that Is bare of hair he must
select a piece of skin to tit it, and the hair
must be exactly of the right length to fit
On a seal the hair near the tall is shorter
than the hair near the head. Of course a
piece of fur from near the tall will not fit
in a bare spot near the bead of a skin. The
cutter has a peculiar method of shaping
the pieces to bo set in, ami tlua must be
understood by the glrla who do the sew
ing, so that a girl who baa worked at the
busiuesa becomes an expert, and a girl who
has not served an apprenticeship at sewing
turn la of little use in the shop.
It Is not an unusual thing for one large
establishment to have fifty or sixty girls
sewing furs In the busy season in summer.
The most expert girls readily get employ
ment the year round, while those who are
less expert arc the first to lie discarded, and
go from shop to shop. The wages earned
ia somewhat hlglwr than the prices paid
for ordinary sewing, as tbe business is
somewhat unhealthy and requires consid

Big Partridge Story. I
A western journal relates the following:
A few mornings ago Thomas Trees went
down the creek from his father's house to
examine some traps he hail set. While In
specting the traps he heard his dog mak
ing an unusual noise some distance below
him. On going to the dog he found him
lying on the ground and partridges stick
ing out all around his body. Tbe dog bad
found a dock, aud alighting in the midst
bad pinioned ten, but when he rose up
eight of them escaped, he still holding two
with his paws. Thomas secured the two
partridges the others all escaping. This
is an extraordinary feat for a dog, and only
needed a word from the young man to have
secured the whole of the birds originally
captured by the dog. .

that alligators are very fond of them, and
