c The Crmay Ball.
Street peddlers have a new catch
penny device on their tracks that is
quits an amusing thing lor oia as weti
as yoonff folks. Tliey call it the "crazy
ball." and it is well named. For ten
cents yon tun bay one of these things
and see the laws of trravity defied. It
looks like an ordinary wooden ball, about
the size of a tennis Imll. but yon can't
roll it in a straight line to save you. Of
oonrse the secret of the thing's qneer
actions Lie in the fact that it is loaded
on one side. This makes every move
ment of the ball eccentric. It will mil
tip lull of its own accord, and it will re
fuse to roll down hill If yon try to roll
it from yon it will perhaps start out all
right, and then turn around and roll
back, or may tie it will go off sidewiw
and describe a wobbly circle arouud
yon. All its movements are jerky and
spasmodic. Give it to a kitten to play
with and the chances are that the kitten
will go mad, while a baby will cry with
Texationoveritsetwntrif itiea. A grown
person who is not up in spherical geom
etry will assure yon that it is wonderful
It is not ft is only some sharp fellow's
way of gathering in the dimes. Never
theless, ere long the city will be flooded
with these "crazy balls. New York

1 met a gentleman at the Union depot
tbe other night who hud just returned
from Kearney county. Me said. Itook

taken with them. 1 built a bedstead of
boards in the corner and bid in a stock
of canned goods and dried meat 'Hie
first night after it was completed 1
crawled into bed and feM into a deep
sleep. About midnight I was awakened
by a half dozen rude jolts, some one
cracked ft whip, yelled 'Git upfand I
straightway felt the motion of a heavy
wagon. I was but half awake, but 1 re
alized that my bed was tipped to an
angle of 45 degs. and that everything
was moving. I realized that my shanty,
snpposed to be unoccupied, was being
stolen with me in it I grasped my re
volver and emptied it nt the walls and
in answer beard the auund of scattering
feet I crawled out of the small win
dow and drove back about 100 yards to
the site of the house, where I made the
horses fast and posted myself uuder tbe
wugon. The next day 1 drove two mile
to my nearest neighbor and soon had his
opinion and that of several other farm

A SurnaMor of Newton.
Sir George Gabriel Stokes, who is till
he retires senior member for Cambridge
university, is one of the most distin
guished mathematicians of the day. He
is an old man in tbe "seventies," below
the medium height, with snow white
hair and ft very high forehead. Sir
George is president of the Royal society,
an office which was held by the famous
Sir Isaac Newton, who was also member
for the University of Cambridge, These
two positions, which have never been
held by oue individual since tbe time of
Newton, are now, after the lapse of up
ward of two centuries, happily combined
in Sir George.
To carry the analogy further, Newton
never once spoke in parliament, while
Sir George, although an assiduous sitter
out of debates, has during his five years
of parliamentary life addressed the
house on two or three occasions only.
It is not generally known that Sir George
Stokes is an Irishman, llis father, a
distinguished graduate of Trinity col
lege, was rector of Screen, about seven
miles from the tuwo of Sligo. London
How Ualtw Firemen Managed
The firemen of Caribou, Me., were
called upon to perform a feat rather out
of the usual line of duty. The bridge
across the Aroostook river connecting
the two sections of the village burned,
and although the adjacent buildings in
the main village were saved those ou
the opposite side of tbe river, near the I
end of the bridge, took fire and were
threatened with destruction. All of the
fire apparatus was in the main village,
the bridge was destroyed and there
were no boats at hand. Accordingly
the best swimmers in the fire company
were selected to swim the river with
a line of hose. They accomplished the
feat and got across just in time to pre
vent the destruction of $.10,000 worth of
property. Philadelphia Ledger.
Some people begrudge the little money
that so AUiCOCK's PoaonR Plastib costs,
and then when they are racked with pain !
from a lame back, or from the soreness
arising from a cold, tbey will spend any
amount of money to relieve the pain. If
they only had one of these world renowned
piasters on nana, mey wouiu ne saven a
vast amount of suffering and be consider
ably richer. At the first sign of stiffness
of ihe joints apply one of these plasters
without any delay. The soreness will be
greatly relieved at once and soon disappear
entirely. It will be money saved to have
them on hand, to say nothing of the com
fort they bring.

A lu,t atom In Simla.
A curious phenomenon occurred in
Simla recently on two successive nights.
This was nothing less than a dust storm
in the midst of a downpour of rain, or
rather, to speak more correctly, a shower
cf mud. .A column of dust seems to
bare been carried up iuto the higher at
mosphere from the plains and to have
been caught and forced down by the
Jieavy rain. In the morning, as a result,
all the plants and flowers in Simla were
found to have received a thick coating
f mud. There could be no donbt that
the mud had been rained down, for it
was freely sprinkled on plants away
from the hillside and at a great height
from the ground. Moreover a deposit
ot mud was found tn the rain gauges in
various parts 'of the station. It la a
common thing to see tbe atmosphere In
the hills during the hot season thick with
taxi from the plains, carried aloft ty a
.strong wiud. But the conjunction of
ruin and dust Is an accident of which,
it is stated, there la no owvious rocord.
