Ha Thlnki the Principle of PerverltJ
Govern All Departments of lUfe.
It baa been observed from time im
memorial that a curious perversity of
olimate so we have been accustomed
to consider it generally provides one
sort of weather to match a precisely op
posite sort of clothing. Thus a walking
stick will generally attract rain and an
umbrella will produce sunshine.
Indeed the principle of perversity
governs every department of life.
Should sunshine be necessary it will be
wet. Documents of no importance are
never mislaid. We invariably meet the
people whom we are anxious to avoid
and miss those we especially wish to
meet. A woman generally loses her
heart to the wrong man ; a man gener
illy marries the wrong woman. Every
ne will be able to add to these exam
pies almost indefinitely from personal
There are no aocidents whatever in
life. Modern science has established
that every incident is governed by an in'
variable law. Careful observation and
the study of statistics prove beyond the
possibility of doubt that clothes do very
materially influence weather, a discov'
ery which should be invaluable not only
to. the farmer, but to every member of
the community.
Recent science, moreover, has erro
neously adopted the theory of the surviv
al of the fittest. The primal law which
governs every circumstance of life is
the survival of the unfittest. For in
stance, if a man is to inherit a fortune
from a relative, the latter will survive
to extreme old age. In literature and in
.art the man of talent fails, the charlatan
attains fame. In finance and in com
merce the swindler makes a fortune and
becomes fashionable, the honest man is
driven into bankruptcy. An enemy is
sure to flourish. - The pattern Sunday
school boy is cut off in his youth ; the
truant grows to manhood, marries hap
pily and dies respected and regretted by
all. The worthy youth never marries
the woman he loves ; she marries his
utterly worthless rival. London Truth.
The Metalllo Splendor of the Diplomatic
Corps on New Tear's Morning;.
Washington 's most picturesque f ea
ture, the diplomatic corps, never gets in
to action until the reception at the
White House on New Year's day, al
though the individual members will be
seen out in society for a month or more
before the recognized social season. At
the New Year's reception, however, the
diplomats come out strong, and the pro
cession of the members of the foreign
legations and embassies from the White
Houso to the home or hotel of the secre
tary of. state, where the diplomatio
breakfast is served, is one of the gala
sights of the year. Many of the popula
tion of Washington stay up all night in
arder to get a place on the White House
fence where they may see the procession
pass as soon as it has been received and
properly attended to by the president.
After this reception the entire organi
sation lines up and puts out on foot for
the home of the secretary of state. As
they pass from the White House grounds
in their glittering raiment they are the
showiest things in Washington and
worth coming miles to see. The lowli
est attache in the crowd will give cards
and spades to the most showily dressed
drum major in the country and will win
out with ease. They have gold lace and
bullion strung all over them, while the
aigrets, plumes, epaulets, cords, tassels
and ribbons of any one legation would
stock a millinery store. Snch is the ef
fect of this aggregation of beauty and
valor on the great American crowd
gathered without the gates that every
man in it utters at some time while the
procession is passing, with contemptu
ous emphasis, the remark which occurs
oftenest in the narrative of the adven
tures of Chimmie Padden. Indianapo

Running the Gantlope.
The following extraota give further
Information concerning this punish
ment :
"In running the gantlope, the regi
ment was formed six deep, and the ranks
opened and faced inward. Each man be
ing furnished with a switch, the offend
er, naked to the waist, was led through
the ranks, preceded by a sergeant, the
point of whose reversed halbert was pre
sented to his breast to prevent his run
ning too fast. As be thus passed through
the ranks every soldier gave him a
stroke." Grose's "Military Antiqui
ties," Volume 3, Page 108.
. But the oldest notice I have seen is
given in "Monro: His Expedition with
the Worthy Scots Regiment (called
Mackoyes Regiment), levied in August,
1628, etc London: Printed by William
Jones in Red-Crosse-Streete, 1637:"
"Other slight punishments we en-,
joyne for slight faults, put in execution
by their camarades ; as the loupegarthe
(running the gantlet; Swedish gantu
lopp, to run through a hedge made by
soldiers), when a souldier is stripped
naked above the waste, and is made
to runne a furlong betwixt 200 soul
diers, ranged alike opposite to others,
leaving a space in the midst for the
souldier to runne through, where his
camarades whip him with small rods
ordained and cut for the purpose by the
Gavilliger . (provost marshal), and all
to keepe good order and discipline. "
Notes and Queries.
A Sentence Overheard In the Street A
. ewers the Old Conundrum.
Tired by a long day's work and feel
ing a bit "blue" over some matters
which had gone counter to my hopes, I
was walking down Broadway one night
last week, on my way home. It was
after 10 o'clock and the down town
streets were almost deserted.
As I turned through Sixteenth street
I noticed an old lady and an older gen
tleman walking slowly, arm in arm,
evidently husband and wife. He was
apparently about 70, she perhaps five
years younger.
They seemed vory fond of each other.
There was just the least little inclina
tion of the head of each toward the oth
er, and they were strolling along so
slowly as to suggest the thought that
thoir pace was regulated not so much by
the infirmities of age as by the desire
and pleasure of being alone together.
They were talking earnestly.
It had rained earlier in the evening
and the sidewalks were still wet, so
that I had put on my rubbers before
leaving the office. Consequently my ap
proach was noiseless. Just as I overtook
and passed the old people the man turn
ed to his wife aud said, as 1 in answer
to some remark she had made, "But,
my dear, I like to think God sent you to
From a lover to his sweetheart or
from a young husband to a young wife
the words might have sounded senti
mental, and would certainly have seem
ed commonplace, but from a husband of
three score and ten to a wife of 65 they
had a weight and dignity which made
them sweet to hear and wholesome to
recall. . . -
Here was the whole story of two lives
told in a sentence. Here was the answer
to the old question about marriage. For
them it was surely a divine success.
Here at least was proof that the writers
of fairy tales and of old time novels
spoke truly when they said that "they
were married and lived happy ever aft
er." New York Herald.
All the Tools Made by Hand and Native
,, Iron Used. ,
Frank G. Carpenter, writing about
the peculiarities of Korea, says among
other things:
"One of our ponies had to be shod,
and another time we put shoes on the
bull which carried' the baggage. The
pony was first thrown to the ground, and
his four legs were tied together so that
he couldn t possibly kick.
"Then the blacksmith pounded hoop
iron shoes on his feet with a rude iron
hammer. It was the same with the bull,
though one man had to sit on his head
while he was being shod. The iron
seemed to be very good, and it comes
from the mines in the northern part of
the country. The tools of the country
are made of it, and the farming tools
are very ingenious, the three and four
pronged hoes being quite as good as
anything we have in America. They
were making tools in this blacksmith s
shop, and all the tools and plows are
made by hand.
"The blacksmith had a rude bellows,
which was worked by a boy who stood
on a seesaw and by moving up and
down pumped the fire into a blaze. In
other places I saw bellows which boys
Worked by pulling a stick in and out
like that of a squirtgun: and everything
is rude in the extreme.
"Sometimes horses are shod by being
strapped up to poles, so that only two
of their feet can rest on the ground,
and the band ' which goes around the
belly holds the horse up while he is
shod." Roxbury Gazette.
A Lake of Boiling Lava.
Mauna Loa, the gigantio Hawaiian
voloano, has two craters or openings,
one of which, Eilauea, is the largest
active volcanio crater in the world. The
mountain is 14,100 feet high, and Ki
lauea is situated on the eastern side,
about 4,000 feet above the level of the
sea. This marvelous crater is really a
vast lake of boiling lava which rises and
falls continually by the action of sub
terranean fires. In tossing to and fro
like a troubled sea of molten metal the
lava is dashed against the cliffs and
hardens there in the form of long, glassy
filaments, .gigantio knobs, miniature
trees, and in imitation of grass, leaves,
etc . -
Another form of glassy filament to
be found along the shores of this fiery
lake is m the shape of queer bunches
and tufts of lava made up of an aggre
gation of vitreous threads which the na
tives call "Pele's hair," Pele being the
goddess to whom the mountain is dedi
cated. These glassy threads appear to
be caused by the passage of -steam
through the molten lava. In so doing
small particles in the shape of bubble
like balloons are thrown into the air,
leaving a tail behind like a comet.
When the scene of these miniature steam
eruptions is near a rock or the shore all
solid and oool surfaces are found cover
ed with bunches of "Pele's hair. " This
hair" was formerly used in mystio
native ceremonies, and of late years
has been gathered in large quantities
by curiosity seekers. St. Louis Repub-

President Hayes and the Farmer.
President Hayes had for one of his
Ohio neighbors a testy old fellow who
kept a small truck farm.' During Mr.
Hayes' four years in the White House,
on one of his visits home, he passed this
eld man's farm and found him planting
potatoes. The president, being some
what of a farmer himself, notieed some
eccentricity in his neighbor's style of
planting, and after a little chat called
attention to it. The old man defended
his method, and finally Mr. Hayes said
as he started along, "Well, I don't think
you will get the best kind of a crop if
you plant in that manner." The farmer
rested his elbows on the ifcnce. "They
ain't neither one of us above havin fault
found with us," he said, "but if you
jest go on presi dentin the United States
your way and I go on plantin pertaters
my way I guess we won't be no wnss off
