JiB, the Tnap.

Ua was a bad lot I Maftiitrates, jsll

obaplaiDB and polioe had all at varloti*

times told hfm w, and he qaletly aooept-

ed their fudsment, knowing !t to be

pretty near the troth. An ontoast from

his very babyhood, what chance had he

ever bad P Left by an unfeeling mother

to die in a roadside ditch, he had been

taken to the nearest nnion, to be brought

up a workhouse foundling, nutll he was

old enongh to be bound ^prentice and the

guardians eould wash their hands of blm

enUrely. A drunken saddler ooveUftnted

to clothe, board and teach blm his trade;

and at his hands poor Jim had a dog's

life, until, goaded by madness by every

species of ill treatment, be struck bis

master and fled. For a while he tiied

hard to get work in the villages through

which he passed; but no one would take

on the strange friendless lad, and so he

made up his mind to enlist for a soldier.

If only he had reached York an hour

or two earlier her mi^esty^s arm} would

gained a useful recruit, and poor J!m

would have bad a ohanoe to rise and be-

oome a credit to the service. But lU

luck would not let blm go. He was

routed out of ao old stable by a zealous

member of the city police and charged

nextday with sleeping out at night, or

some other equally heinous orlmOf the

result being that he was commuted to

prison for seven days. This broke down

his last shred of self respect; and when

that happens to man or boy, heaven help

him, for his doom ts sealed.

Jim came out of Jail utterly reckless,

with a wild hatred of everybody and

everything. He thought no more of

soldiering or getUog work, but let him­

self drift absolutely to the bad. He soon

got into vicious oompany, and before

many weeks were over was again In the

clutches of the law. The down-hiU road

is an easy one and the pace Is always

rapid, and so, at 30 years of age, he was

pret^ widely known to the authorities

as a oonfirmed rogue and thief, who

would not stick at tiifles when once

be was roused.

Yes, there Is no doubting it, be was an

out.and-out bad lot I And he looked it,

too, as he slonohed along the country

lane with bands deep In bis empty

pockets and his bead bent to meet the

ralo whiob the November wind drove

In his face. But he was too much used

to disoomfon to heed the weather, and

plodded snllenly on through the puddles

In the deepening gloom, half asleep, and

so utterly careless of everything around

that be ttover beard the beat of hoofs

until a o&eery Toi#e^ cried: *>Nnw. mv

good'fellow. If you do not want the

whole road to yourself, perhaps you will

let me pass."

Jim never.looked round, but slunk

closer to the dripping hedgerow, expect­

ing the horseman to ride on without an­

other word, but something unexpected

happened, for the cheery voice said

"Thanks I**

It was the first time any one had ever

thanked the good.for-nothing, and he

stared up in blank amazement and saw a

man of about his own age, in red coat

and top boots plentifully bespattered

with mud, looking down at him from the

back of a weight carryicg hunter with­

out the least gleam of averslpn or sus­

picion on his pleasant, fresh-colored


"Yon look rather done up; been long

on the road ?**

"A week an* more !** The reply was

Buriy enough—not that Jim resented

the question, but simply because he was

so used to Insnlts and rough speaking

that the Idea of a "blooming sweir

speaklDg civilly to such as he look bim

utterly by surprise.

"Going homeP"

Jim gave a contemptuous grunt.

"Never ha yan, guv'oor!"

' 'Poor chap! But you live somewhere

I suppose P"

"Oh yes"—with a chuckle—"I live

Bomewheres—anywheres. r»e not like

fiome folks, most have everything Up-top.

No; that's not my style. YeVe a big

bouse, in course, and lots of slaveys to

wait on ye. I lives just where I can, and

has to fend for mysen, and donH often

get my meals regular."

And the cruel contrast between him­

self and bis oompaoioD filled the tramp*8

heart with bitter thoughts. Why have

some folks all the goods things of

life and others none of them P Uere was

a mao no older than himself with floe

clothes ou his back and a horse to carry

bim; while he, poor fellow, bad to

trudge along ankle deep In mud with

scaroety a whole thread to cover bim.

Why, the horse was a loug way better

oS and more cared for; it at least hod a

warm, dry stable waiting for U, while he

had never a re&tiDg place nor a crust of

bread to eat.

Again the cheery, kind tones startled

him: "But you have friends somewhere

1 suppose P"

"No; not me! There's never a single

soul, guv*nor, in this wide world as cares

a rap for me; and when I lies down

some day and dies in u ditch, iheru'll

Qoao be, man, woman or child, as'll miss

me. None'll be sorry, 'ceplio' the parish

bums as'll have to put me twder ground,

and they'll grudge doing of that even."

Jim gave a short, ugly laugh and

slouched on. the water, squish, squish,

squishing out of the gaping rents of lus

old boots at every step. He quite

expected the 'swell* to ride off now

and leave him to the rapidly deepening

gloom and the wild, cheerless olKht; but

tbo horse was kept steadily alongside of

him, and his rider spoke again-

"CaoH. jou gel into regular work uud

leave this tramp buulucss P*'

"No; there's nonu will have the likes

of ue. 1 don^ look respectable tiuou|;h."

'Nonsense, man. Don*t g«t down on f oreatores bdilnd him and feeed tba bleak

your luck, but ptek yourself up. Now,

look here; I will give you a chance' my­

self, if yon will take It."

Jim could not believe his ears. Some

one actually talking to him as U he wu

an honest man, and not some sort of

vermin or venomous beast. A real 'tip­

top* gentleman, too. He must be mud­

dled. But the brown eyes were looking

oooly enough at blm, and their ^owner

was saying, "Well, what do you •ayP"

**Yer don*t know who I be; Tm n bad

lot! I*ve been In quod oft enough,**

blurted out Jim, feeling somehow be

could not take bis new fonnd patron In.

"I dare say you have, and deserved It,

too. • But I believe yon can pull around

yet It yon like; and, as I said, I will

give yon the chance of regular work and

pay. Will yon take It P"

In the depth of JIm*fl warped nature

there glimmered something like a spark

of gjatitode and a dim longing after a

new life, for a moment; but old habits

were to strong for him, and the clouds

closed darker again as she shook bis

head and said In tones which tried to be

civil: "No, guv*nor; yer mean well;

but its no go now. fm no good for any­

thing but cadging ahd tramping, an* I

doan want to work for any master—ar*

won't, neyther."

He expected an angry lecture and

abuse for refusing; but the other said

quietly, stroking bis boot with the handle

of his hunting crop. "That Is a danger­

ous way of thinking, my friend, and will

get you into trouble again. You are a

fool not to try and puU up a bit; but yon

know your own aflhlrs best. Well, here

is a supper and a bed for you anyway*

Look out.** He tossed a half-crown to

Jim with careless, easy good-nature, and

shaking op bis horse, trotted ofV with a

nod and "good luck."

How costless a word or two of sympa­

thy Bre,.and yet bow priceless they may

become I How easy to be gracious, and

yet how far-reaching the results 1 We

scatter kindly greetings here and there

as we journey on life's roadway, and lo!

they sprang up bright flowers to glad­

den some sad, weary wayfarer. We

perform thoughtlessly now and again

trivial services of oourtesy and forget

them; but they shine in lone loveless

hearts as glittering stars to cheer the

midnight sky.

Hugh Boyntop, smoking bis high-

priced Havana after dinner that evening

in the luxurious ease of bis favorite

lounging chair, had utterly forgoten all

about the few words and the silver coin

Which he Jiad thrown to the tramp whom

he had overtaken as be rode home irom

hounds. Jim, curled up under the lee

of a clover rick, turned the half-crown

over and over in bis hand, and thought

of how for oaoo In his life he bad been

sppken kindly to by a real gentleman.

Five dreary years passed over Jim^

luckless head, their monotony broken by'

police court, prison-cell and vagrant-

ward experiences. Ho had wandered up

and down some dozen counties and seen

the inside of most of their jails, and now

as Christmas drew near, bad drifted to­

wards York; not that he had any parti­

cular reason for getting there, but be­

cause it lay io his way north, and he

happened to be making in that direction;

why, not even he himself knew, for

north, south, east and west were alike to

bim. He had bad a run of bad luck late­

ly. Once or twice be bad found a

casual's welcome and slept under cover;

but he had a rooted objection to its oon-

oommltants, and chose rather the cold

and exposure of the open air. He had

scarcely tasted food for a week and bad

almost forgotten the feel of a oopper

coin; for somehow the near approach of

the festival of peace and good will

seemed to have shut up men's pockets,

and sharp refusals and scornful slleuce

werffallbegotfrom those of whom be

asked help.

The afternoon was closing as he found

himself in the long straggling village of

Marston, footsore and dooe up. The

lights at the grocer's shop threw a broad

band of brlghtuess across the road, and

Jim could sec a man in a white apron

busily piling up a pyramid of loaves

which a boy had just brought in crisp

and hot from the bakebou^. The sight

was too much for the famished fellow.

and he pushed bis way into the shop.

"Now, then, what Is HP" cried the shop­

man sharply, as he scanned Jim's tattered


"Will ye give me yan ov them little

uns. guv'ooi P I'm nigh clemmed.** and

he nodded toward the bread pile.

"No, certatoly not; I '-ever give U)

beggars or tramps.*'

"I've not tasted bit nor sup this blessed

dsy. God knows.*'

"Can't help thai! Come, get out of

the shop, do you hear P—or I'll set the

constable onto you. The likes of you

ought not to be allowed to go about the

country. Come, ofl' with you!"

So the social outcast went forth into

the night hungry and insulted, and the

sleek tradesman rubbed his hands and

stacked his touves, oongralulatlog him­

self the while on his refusal to count­

enance a worthless vagabond, who, re­

garded from the lofty standpoint of

political noooomy, had no right to live on

the earth. And yet Jonathan Binner was

wont to pose on political platforms as

the heuvoo sent champion of the masses-

Then, iodeed, his sympathy flowed out io

such a mighty torrent towards the uni­

versal brotherhood of men that there was

out so much OS a drop left to give a crust

or even u civil word to a starving trump

ut bis door-

Thrut) limes did Jim try bis luck down

the leuictb of the village street, with no

butter buccess; and then he gave it up

aud bitterly left the houses of bis fellow

open eountfy again. Ha dragged him­

self along for a f^w weary mtles, then

opening t gate omwled Into a half-mined

cowshed and flung himself down upon

aome braokan and straw litter In the

tottheat oonar, and dozed off. When

be woke np Ilia moon had risen, and was

ahlnlng In through tiie oblnki In tba roof,

and Jim ooald aae the oonntry side was

white witb anow. He shivered and

buried hlmaalf oompletoly in tba bracken

and.tried to sleep again and fbrget the

oold and his hunger. He had almost

anoceeded, when the sound of voices

came to blm on the still night air, and a

minute later three men entered the abed.

'•Coraa the oold !** growled one as be

drew back Just vrithln the shadow.

"Curse blm, yon mean,** aidd another,

the wall and began to blow upon bis

him the book and pointing out tbe ninth

verso of tbo elghlb chapter of Ksther;

" Then were tbe king's scribes called

writing thereof, and to every people

Master Conceit entered upon bis task

with confidence, but at tbe end of one

hour, to his mortification, could not re­

peat it without slip.—CAmtotn AdvoeaU.


Apple Sauce and Bhenmatism.

There has always been a humorous

kind of association between cider and

champagne, the former being regarded

as a sort of lowly attendant or obsequious

follower of the latter. Cider serves as a

poor man's champagne, and yet it Is

capable of such excellence, and is such

an honest, trustworthy drink, that sensi­

ble persons have often been heard to re

mark that they should much prefer good

cider to inferior champagne. Now it

seems that this parallelism between tbe

two liquors has a Bcieniilio reason, for I

am informed by a rheumatic friend of

mine that the same acid is to be found iu

both. This discovery be made through

the not very agreeable process of getting

severe twinges of palo by eating apple

siuoe, which bis physician told him was

as bud for bis complaint us champagne

itself. Tlie putiem, I believe, upon this

discovery expressed his deep regret, not

that be bad indulged In apple sauce, but

that he had failed to take an equivalent

amount of poison in Ihe more palatable

and inspiring form of champagne. This

properly of upple suuce is iotereaUng,

rProm the ChaUiaro'ltepnbllcfiti.l

Saperrlsor of Census WilUiina C.

Diley of this Ttllaf^e bas completed one

portion of hts preliminar; work—that of

dividing the Tlitrd Snperrisor District of

tbis State Into Enumeration districts.

There are 162 of them, 28 in Oolnmbia

county, 46 in Datcbess. 3 In Fotnam and

80 In Westchester. The several conniiei*

wn snbdlTlded n« follows:

In Oolnmbia conoty Hndson has 5 enn-

meration dlsOHcts; Chatham, Claveraok,

Obent, Kinderhook and Stockport. 2

each; Abcram, AnsterlttB, Canaan, Cler­

mont, Copake, Gallatin, Grermaotown,

Qreenport, Hillsdale. Livingston, New

LetMoon. Stnyvesant and Tnghkanic,

one each.

Dntobess oonoty is sabdlvlded into

emimeratiott districts as follows: Tongb*

keepiie (dty) 12, Fishkill 4; fled Hook

andWappinger, 3 each; Dover. Easi

Fishkill, Hyde Park, Poni^hkeepsie

(tow), Rhinebeok. Stamford and Wash­

ington, 2 each; Amenia, Beekman.

Clinton, LaGrange. Milan, North East,

Pawling, Fine Plains, Pleasant Valley

and Union Vale, one each.

"Little Fotnam*^ county will have its

people conntod by cnumonitors, thus:

Fhililpstown and Southeast, 2 each;

Carmel, Kent, Patterson end Pleasant

Valley, one each.

Nearly one half the onamerators to be

appointed by Snperintendont Daley will

labor in Westchester county. Its sub*

tUvlslons will be as follows: Yonkets,

16 districts; Cortland, 7; Greenbnrgh, 6;

Eaatcbester, fi; Bedford, Lewisboro,

New Rochelle, Ossloing and Rye, 4 each;

Mount Pleasant. New Castle, North

Castlo and Westchester, 3 each; llarrl-

son, Pelhem. Somers, White Plains and

Yorktown, 2 each; Mamaroneck. North

Salem, Poundiidgo and Scarsdale, one


Supervisor Daley will now turn his at­

tention to the Boleotlon of the ennmera-

torsfor the districts. He Is ovorron

with applications. Some of those ap­

plying are dlsqualiOed under* the consue

law because they are already holding

local oOloea that cause them to be Inter­

ested In the assessment or laying of tax*

cs. such as assassors, supervisors, vill­

age trustees, school trustees, or over*

seers of highways.

There isn't mnoh fun in serving as a

oensas enumerator, but there is lots ol

work, and it has to be performed prompt­

ly and squarely. Ample authority it-

vested in the census taker to compel ai

answer to the prescribed quostions, anr

guessing on the part of the enumerate

is punishable by fine and imprisonment

So is a refusal to serve after having re

celved an appointment. Supervism

Daley will probably announce his ap­

pointments sometime during the presen


Advertisements of deaths and marri­

ages take rank with the most important

featnros that can bo devised for the ool'

nmns of a newspaper. With many per­

sons the first thing looked for in the

morning or evening paper Is the list 6f

death notices. Recognizing this fact,

most papers give such advertisements a

position which could not be obtained for

any other style of paid annonncements

at anything like proportionate rates.

The New York Wortd has lately gone a

stop farther, and now runs the mnrrisges

and deaths In the first two oolnmns of Its

first page where no displayed advertise­

ments are allowed. While the appear­

ance of the paper is somewhat Injured

typographically by the Innovation, there

is no doubt but that advertisements are

genuine news, and such are worth the

prominent position given them.

The Tribune thinks "Ooremor Hill

will have another opportunity of con­

gratulating the Republican leaders In the

Legislature on their wisdom in keeping

down expenses. The Supply bill has

now been agreed on, and it Is an excel­

lent companion to the General Appropria­

tion bill, which evoked Mr. IlllPs warm

praise last week. The Snpply bill calls

for a toUl of $1,314,228. which is

9925,872 less thau the similar bill passed

a year ago. To effect a reduction of al­

most a million dollars speaks volumes for

the good judgment and economical dis­

position of tbe Republican majority in

the Legislature. There will be no

ground for charges of extravagance

against our party friends in tbe n^t

State campaign."

A milk war is now on In tbe New-

milk producers branch union ha*

made a stand against tbe creamery mer.

and since April 1 all the creameries bar*

been boycotted except one. where tb*

farmers faltered, but It will probably b<

brought into line also. The creamer*

men refuse to agree to the union lermR

and the farmers are keeping back tbeii

milk. The firmness of the farmers wa^

surprising, as, with the one exoeptioi

named, they have complied with th*

order almost to a man. At a meet

ing of tbe Homer lUmsdell Trans­

portation Union, held recently tbfit-

was adopted a resolution to thi

effect that all sections of that branch

•Ucalil.withhold their milk until furthei

orders from the executive committee of

the branch union, and that tbecommittee

seud a man to New York city to sell all

milk of this branch union. Such cream­

eries as have formed co-operative socie­

ties are excepted from this order, pro­

viding they have disposed of their milk

in oonformity with the union regulations

Ilumitn OrlEin of Bioranijr,

It would api>ear, from the codes of

people fur whom no divine revelation

IS claimed by us, that man by Ills un­

aided clforlfi has como to the knowl­

edge of the best principles and prac­

tices of morality,lias not only made

admirable rules of conduct, but has

perceived that the essence of goodness

lies in the character of the soul. If

this be 60, it is unuecessary to suppose

a supernatural divine revelation to ac­

count for the ethical pbenomeua of so­

ciety. It might beaaid, indeed, that

all this ethical development proceeds

from a primitive divmo ravclation.

But this blatcmcut rests on no histori­

cal pixmf, nor would it explain the

fact that the ethical progress of a na­

tion goes hand iu band witli its

growtli iu civilization. If the ancient

Hebrews received their elhicol codedi-

lycU;^ from God, whence comes itthat

than iu the pre-exiliou prophetio pe­

riod, less luOd in tbo days of David,

and comparatively rude in the period

of the judges? It would bo singular if

the generations which stood nearest

tho revelation were least affected by

it.—Professor C. H. Toy in Popular

Science Monthly.

A party of gentlemen were discuss­

ing the proper place for a napkin

when at dinner. One of tbe group, an

old traveler and diner out, declared

uuhcsitutiugly that the napkin should

bo tucked beneath the chin so as to

protect the scarf of tlie guest as well

us his clothing. He know it would be

uuscrtcd that such a thing is vulgar,

but in any event there should be os

much care token of tho shirt front and

scarf of a diucras the rcstof hisattire.

Some people hold that the proper place

for a napkin is iu the guest's lap;

others tliat it should be tucked between

the second and third vest button, but

he favored the chin idea because it is

sensible and nautical.—Washington

It is as the incarnation of tho govern^

not the simplest way to restrain the

pair of fiquo.iky 1xM>ts? We went into

a confprcnco tho othrr day and you

were there witli those squeaky boota;

squeaky boots. First, you went up to

stop was emphasized by that squeak.

Tho eyes of the nudmnee left the

and you must needs go and sco about

way, Wednesday, March 2C. The new

time card does not effect the connection

made at Boston Corners with the Har­

lem trains for PoughkeepEie. The 8:04

a. m., north bound train on the Harlem

lands one in Pougbkeepaie at 11:10

a. m. The traveler may spend a little

over five hours in that city and return

the same day. The nooo train also

makes coonection.

Charles Washburn, an umbrella men­

der, or gypsy, became hilarious io the

violnliy of D^'kemaos on Wednesday.

Several of Ibe inbabiLaots of that peace­

ful locality were driven from their homes

by the threats of the low rascal made

wild by liquor. Complaint was made

before Justice Barnes, who issued a

warrant for his arrest. He was taken

into custody by Deputy Sheriff Day yes­

wbo issued tbe Bu 01 mons, and was sen-

teoced to Carmel jidl for thirty days.

The Sandford Girls Orchestra has been

giving nightly musical entertainments at

the Town Ball. The programmes have

been changed every evening, and

the entertainments given have been

of a very pleasing and refined class. The

orchestra is accompanied by a so-called

Japanese village. Several Japanese

people have booths about the hall, each

at work at bis or her specialty, and from

them may be purchased cheaply many

unique and fancy articles. These peo­

ple have trimmed the interior of the hall

In a very artistic and elaborate manner,

the exhibition Itself being well worth the

price of admission. Tha hall is open

from 3 o\)look until 5 o'clock In the after­

noon and from 7 o'clock until 10 o'clock

in the evening.

The funeral of Mrs. Emellne A. Den­

Twenty-four cases of scarlet fever have

been reported to the Board of Health this

week. Upon iovestigaiioo it appeared

that nearly all of iho cases reported were

In families receiving thehr daily supply

of milk from J. Oscar Everett's dairy.

Some two weeks ago scarlet fever ap­

peared at Everett's. The house was

quarantined. Airs. Everett was directed

to remain indoors and care for the sick

children. Mr. P^verett and his eldest son

rt-mained outside and cared for the dairy,

and were stricUy charged not to enter

the house or to use anything at all con-

Decled with the house in caring for tbe

pails, strainers or cans employed in the

delivery of milk. So far as can be

learned the Everett's obeyed instructions.

Now it appears that a peddler and junk

dealer oocasloDally puts up at Everett's

and stores rags In the barn. Some of

the rags were clean-looking and Everett

used tham U> wash out his milk palls.

This was on Thursday last. After the

next round of the milk wagon scarlet

fever appeared. Everett had some sur­

plus milk and £otd it to George U.

luiiffeu, another dairyman. Knlflen

delivered it to his customers and speedily

others became ioooculated. Happily

none of the cases are alarming. Everett's

milk route has l>een disoootioued, and all

otluir sources of the village milk supply

have been iuveutigated and orders given

to keep them in goud bacilary condition.

The Interior ot St. Andrew*s church

was redolent with tbe fragrance of the

many beautiful flowers that were ar^

ranged so prettily and tastefnlly all over

the chancel and altar and around the

church. Long before the hour of service

in the morning the church was crowded

to excess, the aisle, vestry-room and

porch being thronged with worshippers

who bad oome to listen to the Easter

music, which waa so excellently rendered

by the quartette choir—Miss Fanny

Crosby, soprano; Mrs. M. H. Hoyt,

alto; Dr. E. P. Strunk, tenor; Richard

MIohell, bass—aod consisted ot solos,

duetts, etc. Among the many present

were some from Somers, Patterson.

Drewvllle and all the adfotnlng villages.

In the evening, the dlflloulty In seating

the people was again apparent. At 6:90

the congregation began to gather and by

7 o\)look, or a few minutes after, there

was hardly room left for breathing

purposes. All the space utilized in the

morning was again full at night and

several had to sit within the chancel,

while many were denied standing room.

About twenty-four persons came down

from Patterson to assist with the singing

and right well did ibey do this. These,

with the Sunday school children, the

female members ot the choir, tenor Dr.

Strunk, and Mrs. L. Q. Storms, contralto,

rendered such a volume of sound as has

not been heard within the walls of St.

Andrew^s tor many years. A pretty solo

was skillfully snng during the evening

by Master Chas. Carlson. The service

closed with the grand old time "corona­

tion" which was sung by the entire oon-

gregation. The Easter offerings amount­

ed to tl88 76. After the service tbe

ringers from Patterson were escorted to

the Southeast House where the genial

proprietor, Mr. Mills Reynolds, had pre­

pared an excellent cold collation of which

all partook heartily before making Ibe

homeward Journey. Conspicuous among

those who had oome to entertain were:

Mr. Frank Wells, Justice Sloan'e and

wife. Mr. and Mrs. Blue and daughter,

Mr. Willis Hlne, Mrs. Turner, Miss

Moore, and Miss Kelley. The day was

a red letter day in the history of the

parish and will ever be remembered by

the members of the two churches repre­

sented. It almost made us regret that

Easter comes but once a year.


The usual Easter programme was

observed In the Presbyterian church.

Flowers In abundance adorned the pulpit

and were arranged tastefully. In addi­

tion to the hymns one or two appropriate

snthems were well rendered and a ser­

mon was delivered on "Tbe resurrection

of man as foreshadowed by the resurree-

tion ot Christ." In tbe evening a service

of song was given by the Sundsy school

consisting of Easter songs and a few

appropriate reoltatlons.


Hundreds of devout worshippers ot

the Catholic faith congregated at St.

Lawrence's church an Sunday morning

to celebrate with special services the

resurrection of .Christ. The church was

crowded to Its utmost cspaclty and was

very neatly decorated and trimmed.

The aervloes, conducted by Rev. Father

Henry, In which the people took active

part, was very impressive. The music

was good.


Kaster was appropriately observed at

tbe Baptist church by special music and

sermons In keeping, with tbe occasion.

Tbe edifice was tastefully decorated with

plants and flowers.

COLD SpmNO. April 10,1890.

Priend Standard i'-Uoniny morning

saw all the sohools ot Patoam oom\y

closed and the teachers making their

way to this place to attend the losUtute.

This is by no means a voluntary matter,

but made compulsory, so that trustees

are prohibited from paying teachers for

their time unless they attend, even sick­

ness not being an excuse. The result Is

that but few teachers are absent any

part ot tbe time.

Cold Spring Is very pleasantly located.

On every aide the sturdy peaks ot the

Highlands keep guard while she bathes

her feet tn tbe Hudson, which a few

miles above and below has a width of

about fire miles bnt Is here crowded into

a space of less than three-quarters of a

mile. So great Is the depth and so rapid

the current here that the boatmen de­

clare there Is no bottom. I heard one

say he had let out 150 patfaoms ot anchor

chain with no signs ot bottom. Directly

opposite is Cro' Nest, as It Is spelled, a

peak over 1700 feet high. Just south,

on tbe west bank of the river but plainly

In Bight Is West Point. A place of much

interest to the teachers Is the foundry

They are now casting there, six ot the

largest guns in the world. They are

said to be tor the fflgllsh government

and It is also said that this foundry Is the

only ono in tbe world which is able to

cast a gun ot tbe size of these In a satis­

factory manner. The guns are 50 teet

long and weigh with the machinery re­

quired to mount them one hundred tons

apiece. They are for tbe navy. Ten

pounds of dynamite Is required for each

charge. One diameter ot the shell when

put Into the gun Is 20 Inches, and so Is

called a 20 Inch shell, bnt is so compres­

sed that when it leaves the mnssle It

measures about 17 Inches. This Is said

to add much to its velocity. Its effective

range is 4 1-2 miles.

Cold Spring Is building a fine new

school building but is making the usual

mistake of making It too small so that In

a tew years an addition will he required.

Tbe Institute Is one of the best ever held

In this county. Prof. Sandford, the con­

ductor, has po superior In the work and

Is an enthusiast on the subject ot educa­

tion. Every period he has occupied, has

been full of interest and profit to the

teachers. A prominent characteristic of

his instruction is "common sense.'* Yes­

terday Milne of the Oneonta Normal

School was with us. He Is considered

ono ot the ablest and most eloquent men

connected with the cause ot education

in the State, and after the experience of

yesterday the Putnam county teachers

think he deserves bis reputation. Mr.

Byington presented his favorite subject

on Monday and Prin. Bamum talked to

us about music In the public school. On

Tuesday, Miss Fay. of the Brewster

school, gave a talk on primary, work and

received many and well deserved oom-

pliinentfl for her masterly presentation

of tile subject.

Monday evening the teachers met in

the Nelsonvllle school and spent some

time sooUUly. renewing old acqualntanoes

and forming new ones. On Tuesday

evening Prof. Sanford gave a fine ex­

hibit of Btereopticon views and last even

ing Dr. Milne gave a lecture on Robert

Bums. This was one of the most master­

ly and scholarly lectures to which it has

ever been our privilege to listen. This

evening we are to be entertained by a

concert by a band from West Point, so

notwithstanding tbe unpleasant weather

we are spending both a pleasant and

profitable week. PUTNAM.

Mr. Lyon was bom in North Castle,

Westchester county. N. Y.. In 1821, and

was a school teacher in his early man­

hood. In 1852 he married Elizabeth

Haines, of this town. After a few years

be accepted a position with the Geo.

Law sy


Tig«n and BcrpcBta in India.

When at Bmares, on the Ganges, in I

1S75,1 recelTeJ a call one day ttttm an

AnMrioan wfaose name was known over

a good share of todta, and whose arrival

in certain localltlei was hailed with more

rejoicing ihan if he had been a prince of

blood. He gave his name as Capt.

White, but his real name was Oeori^o

Foster, and he was a resident of New

Haven. He had gone out to India In

search of a plant said to be a sore care

for cancer, but after searching for a

couple of years without snocess had

tamed his attention to a bitter thing.

He had been a professional serpent and

Uger killer for about four years, and was

in Benares to file his claims to Govern­

ment rewards amounting to about 9700.

After we had visited for a spell as coun­

trymen, the oaptian referred to his

strange calling as follows:

"I went Into the bnslness pnrely as a

financial speculation, the same as I

would out and sell cord wood or raise

cabbages, and I am making more clean

cash than the governors of any fonr states

in America. The rewards patd by the

Government for the dostruclion of dan

gerous wild animals and poisonous scr-

pents are very liberal, but in most dis­

tricts the people are willing to chip in

and make up something extra. India

oonld be divided into 100 districts, each

and every one of them could make

$3,000 per year on the average."

Ha^og nothing to do for a few weeks,

and as the captain was then arranging

h>r a trip to the north. I agreed to make

the jaunt with him. He bad with him.

employn by the month, five natives,

and his camp equipage was transported

by three natives horses. He did not ful­

ly explain his modus operandi to me un-

Ul we made camp about fifty miles north

of Benares. We then came to a village

called Huldah, the head man of which

had sent word for him to come and de­

stroy two man-eallng tigers which in­

fested the neighborhood. When the

packs bad been unloaded and overhani-

cd. Capt. White observed:

•*It is my opinion that the man who

hunts Ugers or the cobra for glory laoks

good bnslness sense. Thcso BrlUsb army

oflSoers are crazy on the subject of tiger

killing, and are bitter against my way of

doing it, but I am consoled by the knowl­

edge that I make all the money and Ihey

run all the danger. I bare several ways

of bagging game, and all are open to

orltlclsm from the regular sportsmen.

This big stool trap I got in London. It

is the only one in India which ever

caught and held a tiger. In that box are

two dozen bottles of poison, and in the

other are some torpedoes, which yon

will see put to use later on. My rifle,

as you see, Is of Knglish make, and the

bullets are explosive on striking. It mat­

ters not to me whether they tear a tiger

in two or only pass through him, so long

as his scalp is preserved as proof of the

killing. Just make youself comfortable

as you can and watch proceedings."

The man-eaters were male and female,

and had made their appearance about

two months previous to our arrival. Oo

the east side of the village was a thick

Jangle, with the ground much broken.

In front of this jungle was a country

road. A quarter of a mile south or the

village the road crossed a creek, the

banks of which were lined with reeds

and bashes. It was at or near this cross­

ing that four or five natives had been

pulled down and carried ofl as they wore

passing to and fro in the early evening.

The last victim was a woman, who was

oaught two days previous lo our arrival.

Capt. White at onoe gave orders that no

one should use the highway after noon,

and that the first four or five buls on

that side of the village bo abandoned.

The center one he strengthened and ar­

ranged for a fort. At noon on the second

day of onr arrival he had a cow killed.

Porticos of her bloody carcass to a point

in front of the hut and about a gallon of

blood was there sprinkled over the


"If we wonH go to the tigers they will

come to us." he observed, as we waited

for the afternoon to wear away. "They

are very hungry by this time, and, un­

less they conclude to take up a now loca­

tion, will be sure to come prowling about


Two hours before sundown the villag­

ers were all shut up in their huts, and

the captain and one of his men and my­

self were In the fort. The native was

armed with a double-barrelled shotgun.

loaded with buckshot, while the captain

had his rifle. I had my revolver, but

did not propose to interfere la the work

unless it became necessary to defend my­

self. From the poriboles on the east

side we could see up and down tbu road

for fifty reds, and the sun wus not yd

hidden when we saw the male tiger in

the edge of the jungle opi>osiLc us. lie

surveyed iUti villugu for a time and tbeu

disappeared, but t^o minutes later both

Ugers appeared on the highway, and

paced up and down, scenting the air and

appearing very restless and uneasy. It

was evident that they were surprised and

suspicious at the tjuieloess prevailing,

but, emboldened by hunger, they soon

decided to investigate. The oighi came

on while they were in the highway, Ijut

a full moon made the locality as ligbt us

day. 1 saw them take one of the bloody

trails and come straight toward the but,

and when they reached the £pot where

the blood had been so plentifully distri­

buted both lapped at it with their heads

close together and kept up a low growl­

ing. The caplaio and his servant both

fired together at pistol range, and both

tigers tiprang full length into the uir, and

then lay quiet.

"There's $60 in cash from the (Jov-

ernmeut, and as much more from the

villagers," bald the captain as he turned

' to me. "It wasn't sporlsuiaullke. us 1

frankly adtuit, but it is a great deal bet­

ter than being clawed or carried oil' by

one oflT by one of the beasts."

The village was rid of Its curse, and

next day when we moved on, tbo puuplu

made up a purse uukoumiug to $OL', uud

also presenicd the cuptaiu with l-vo

oows. We went to ttie ourthea^t uboui

twenty miles, to a villugecalledi^ulubttil.

This was io a section where tigers, pau-

Uiers, hyenas, and poisonous snakes were

plenty, allhougb the villagers had uu

special complaints to make. I ascer­

tained by n talk with the head man that

tn forty days five people had been car­

ried ofT by tigers or psnlhers, a woman

killed by a hyeha, three men bitten to

death by snakos. and two more people

were missing, and wore supposed to have

net their deaths in the jougles. This

was out of a population of 400, and ex­

cited no particular surprise. Kvery na­

tive rcaH?:ed the risks he ran, and ac­

cepted them as a part of his daily life.

Half a mile to the west of the village

were several old huts, abandoned several

years before. One of the natives in­

formed us that he liad seen a cobra in

one of these huts two days before, and

the captain despatched one of his men to

Investigate. He returned in about an

hour, syaing he -had seen at least three

serpents of that species In the biggest

but. This was in the afternoon, find wo

made no move until the next morning.

During the night a villager arose to get

a drink of water, ond looking out of a

window saw a cobra gliding around bis

hot. This window was about twenty

Inches square, entirely unguarded, and

serpent or wild beast could have entered

it and had five people at its mercy.

When I asked the man why ho did not

socnre It, lie shrugged his shoulders and


"If I secure it to-night, I might be

bitten or carried ofT to-morrow as I went

to the fields."

About 9 oVslook in the morning the

oaptain went down to look for the co­

bra. That species of serpent, when un­

disturbed, lies quiet from early morning

until late in the afternoon, lliey search

for their food almost entirely at night,

and never enter a house for any other

purpose than to secure food. The gov­

ernment, in paying a reward for their

destruction, requires the head of the ser­

pent as proof. Captain White returned

to report that three or fonr cobras had

taken up their quarters In the large hut,

and were then asleep, all being coiled

together in a comer on a bed of grass

and leaves. He took from his box a

thin globe or shell of iron alx)ut as large

as a coflce cup, charged It with four

ounce of powder and a handful of swan

and buckshot, and then arranged a fuse

to explode the shell. He bad the shells

cast expressly for him in Calcutta. The

only other preparation was to cut a pole

about fifteen feet long and tie the shell

to the cud of it. When wo got near the

hut the fuse was lighted, and by the aid

of the pole the captain placed the shell

inside and just where he wanted it. The

fuse burned for fifteen seconds, and we

thus had time to retreat to a safe dis­

tance. The bomb exploded with a loud

report, blowing out a portion of one of

the walls and sending out a great pufl* of

flame and smoke. One of the cobras

rolled out of the doorway, hissing,

writhing, and striking at everything

within reach, but it was dead of Its hurts

within five minutes. Then It was found

that there were three dead ones Inside,

and to the captain's great joy their beads

wore intact. These were at once cut off,

a statement of the killing drawn up end

signed and attested, and one of the na­

tives took the four beads in a bag and

started for Benares to turn them over

to the proper oflicial and claim the

bounty. Natives who had come io from

the country gave information of having

come across the half devoured body of a

cow, as they took a short cut across some

broken country to save distance. This

was at a spot about two miles away, and

although they knew that the tiger which

killed the cow the night before and ate

his fill must be lying within rifle shot of

the carcass, Ihey investigated sufllclently

to see that he had dragged the body a

distance of forty rods before beginning

his meal. Later oo It was found that the

cow Iwlonged In the village, and that

she had probably been killed about sun­

down on the evening previous.

"There are two ways in which I can

dispose of that tiger," said the captain,

after be had secured the information.

"I shairpolsou the carcass, and I shall

sot my big trap for him to step into. He

willcomeback to the carcass this even­

ing, and the first move he makes will

bu to drag It ten or fifteen rods. If the

ground admits. No tiger ever eats a

second meal on the same spot, tbough

they will eat of the same carcass.

After dinner a party of natives guided

us to the spot. The cow had been killed

while crossing or drinking at a small

stream. This was on cleared ground.

The tiger hud pulled her out of the mud

and water, dragged her up a bank five

feet high, and bad then drawn the car­

cass over very broken ground to the edge

of the jangle. Four men, provided with

ropes and a tackle, could not have ac-

complisbed tbo work tbat tiger did. He

hud eaten (he neck and shoulder, and

from the fuel that there were no hyenas

or jackals about we knew that he must

bu lying in cloiio by, Tbe captuiu UEcd

aljout two ounces of stiychnlue on the

remains of the carcass, and then set the

trap where he thouebt-tbe tiger must ap­

proach to seize the carcass. I was glad

enough when we were clear of the neigh­

borhood, fur there was no telling at what

moment his royal highness might become

aware of our presence uud come charg­

ing out. We expected nolhioK before

next uioruiug, and we were rather sur­

prised at the g'tod news. We were eat­

ing breakfast when some ol ibe men

came running in with the information

that the tiger was fast in the trap. All

the men in the village turned out to go

with us to tbo spot, and even the oldest

among them saw sumelhlog new that

morning- The Uger had come up to the

iwdy 00 the side opposite Ibo trap, then

he liud jumped over It to take hold, and

had jumped twth fore feet square into

the trap. Tbe jaws had clos^ together

u)>ove the joints, and If he had been ten

times as strong he could not liave re­

leased himself.

As we got our first view of the situa­

tion the tiger was above us on the hill­

side. He was eutuding with the trap on

the body of the euw. bis bind logs firmly

planted, his ears laid buck close to his

heud, and his eyes fulrly bluzod with

muduew. After u bit wc drew nearer,

uud 1 liuully approached within seven

or eight foot. The trap wus ohainttd to

thi- root of a tree, and there was no fear

tUut the beast oould work out of bis fix.

It was a grand opportnnity to study a

devil. He would Mand slrsight np and

roar nt us until one felt his blood run

cold. Then he would maul the trap

against the body and the carih. hoping

to work it loose. This would only add

to the pain, and he v^onld flattenhis oars

and show every tooth in his month, and

spit nt us like an enraged cat. Could he

have broken loose ho would have fought

a crowd ten times as numerous. White

wanted to cage him, as ho conld easily

have been'sold for $500 alive, and so we

returned to the village and set about

making something strong enough to bold

bim. There was no fear that he would

touch the poisoned moat during the

night, and thirst and hanger might take

some of the temper ont of him.

At noon next day we went to the spot

with our cage to meet with a great sur­

prise. During the night a couple of pan­

thers had oome to feast on the remains

of the cow. They bad attacked the tiger

and done for him, though both had been

bitten. They had then feasted on the

cow, and both were lying dead near It.

About a week later than this, while wo

were at a village 25 miles away called

Rahput, tbe natives iu scouring the

jangles to find the lair of a panther

which had committed many depredations

discovered a hole or entrance in the bank

of a ravine Which appeared to lead to

the den of some wild beast.. A well-

defined path led from this hole along the

bank for 200 feet and then dropped Into

the ravine. A party of eight of us

reached the place about midday, and as

soon as tho captain inspected It he pro-

noaoced It a panther^s den. Wo all took

stations on the hillside above tbo hole,

guns held ready to fire, and a i>omb with

a ten second fuse was rolled Into tbe

opening. We beard it rattle against the

rocks, followed by growls, and then

came the explosion... A second later a

bis: panther cleared the hole and rolled

over and over into the ravine, and was

closely followed by a second. We fired

upon both, and soon saw them stretched

out dead, but when we came to examtne

the bodies we saw that we might as well

have saved our bullets. The explosion

of the bomb bad so peppered both beasts

that they could not have lived five min­

utes after making their bolt into tho

ravine.—A\ Y. Sun.
