fire recently at Gainesville Fla and among the houses destroyed was one belonging to Judge King In the excitement of the occasion a valuable trunk belonging to King was left in the house and was consumed and the lady mourned especially the loss of one thing which chanced to be in the trunk a valuable cluster diamond ring A few days after tbc fire some members of the family were inspecting the ruins and chancing to remember location of the trunk in the burned house resolved to tain if any trace of its contents could be discovered among the ashts They poked around among the cinders and found a diamond Thus encouraged the search continued and four more dia- were discovered The missing ring contained seven stones On the day after discovery search was re- and the two remaining diamonds found as well as a small lot of gold representing the melted ring Mrs Judge King doubtless thinks fires not such terrible afflictions as they might be but as a rule diamonds are not found in the ashes even when there's been a dia- mond ring in a burned house It was a wonderfully lucky find apparently enjoying it above all others on the premises It was here it would gambol root and sleep On the 5th ol February last it seems the Captain purchased a load of straw and that day the straw was pitched upon the ing hay making a huge stack Now the pig was under that stack just right there and there he remained until day April 2 By that day the Captain's cow had consumed the straw down to the remains of the hay that was left when a neighbor living near by in passing alone discovered the pig rising up from the midst of the hay and straw and ly showing a by his long confinement in the midst of the stack The news being communicated to the Captain he hastened to the place where the pig lay he carefully examined Piggy ruminated upon the circumstances of the case and then made preparations to restore the dilapidated pig to his pris tine power The was at the time of its disappearance but ment in the stack so many weeks had taken probably forty pounds and the der is that it is alive at all considering the fact that it was so long deprived of nourishment The day on which the pig was found the Captain administered to his pet a portion of a quart of milk mixed with a pint of whisky and also placed it in a tub of hot water con- room Mamma tell him to come up here Why don't you come Papa John The prisoner scowled and looked down and the mother in wiping away her tears raised the veil and the Judge caught sight of her eyes badly bruised and disfigured Did that man do demanded with some severity He was the tearful reply but I'd rather you would him go Judge He don't always know what he's doing He's kind when he knows Papa John come up here at the child's voice rang out again as if the child had been permitted to command The Judge evidently thought there must be a kind streak somewhere under the forbidding exterior of the prisoner else the child bad not been so familiar If I grant your wife's request and let yon go will you promise not to come here he demanded sternly Never again said the oner As he left the bar a free man his little boy ran down the steps of the witness

paralysis siad stupor yet visible in the pig Now we have to attempt to explain the natural philosophy connected with the case of this pig It has dently lived as we have narrated from the of February down to its ery on the 2d of April cut off in a great measure from the chances of air out water food or any nourishing stance and yet it has survived and lives to-day And this is what we know about Queen's now famous Berkshire a plain fact tale of a pig in simple common language without ornamentation and true to the best of our knowledge and belief It is the story of a a fish Mo Record National Debts of the TT oriel We endeavored nearly two years ago to give in these columns an approximate estimate of the national debts of the world We concluded on that occasion that the indebtedness of the world be placed at about ing the two years that have since passed there is good reason to believe that a large addition has been made to this sum New countries and old countries vie with each other in the money markets of Europe and even China has within the last few commenced a national debt There is considerable difficulty in ascertaining the liabilities of the nations which are thus heavily in- The annual almanacs give us some assistance in the subject and the careful information which the Economist publishes in the Investor's Manual fords also considerable help in the The following are the best estimates which we can form of the principal national debts at the present Country Interest England vO United Italy i Austria.........j Russia India Brazil Holland Portugal Australasia Peru Belgium Canada 4 -2 10 3 ti 6 5 Tale of a Fig A and Berkshire pig full-blooded in fine order belonging to Capt Queen of this city has been the cause of much conversation of late among zans There is an inexplicable mystery associated with the aforesaid pig and a history tbat few if any pigs and as Capt Queen's pig has made itself mous in a late adventure it is meet in our opinion that his should re- tbe consideration in our columns that is due a character that has become celebrated in this community So we proceed to tell a little tale no sion to a tail concerning this pig On the 5th of February last Mr Queen's pig was missed Being a pet pig sleek fat and good natured its disappearance excited regret and anxiety as to its fate on the part of Mr Q and his family Every nook and corner of the premises upon which this pig fed and roamed was searched hunt after hunt was ed the neighborhood was explored but nothing was seen or heard of the pig The mystery was complete theory was and conjecture useless What be- came of the That was the question but it failed of a satisfactory answer Tune passed on and still no news of the pig Last changed darkness of the past A discovery mane the missing pig was found It Appears that Capt Queen htd a stack of hay in his yard which was in the course of time eaten down by his cow within a foot or two of the ground The pig made this resort Jts favorite The twenty largest national debts in the world amount therefore in the regate to If we add for the smaller debts the national indebtedness of the world is figured up to TltC debts of twenty

Fourth Ward rum exhaled from every pore in John Mead's body when he at the bar of the Special Session to answer for beating his wife The rum had evidently beaten John for his face was bloated and his naturally kind eyes were flecked with blood spots His clothes were the worse for gutter mud His wife Vinnie Mead bore many marks of privation Her not be Friday however the scene and from ght emerged from Bixby asked seen through the thick veil which she wore She led a little four-year-old boy to the stand with reluctance Judge her kindly whether she wished to prosecute her husband Be- fore she could reply her little boy rather proud to stand so high and look over so many people glanced around until his eye fell upon the prisoner Oh there's Papa he cried in joyous tones that were audible nil over tbe EVER since Rebecca the prime actor in maternal deception played off her successful plot upon her aged husband the patriarch Isaac the world has not been destitute of mothers who intrigue with their sons against the band and the father Sometimes the plot is to secure a greater portion of the ternal estate for a favorite son but more frequently in matters of smaller amounts The son wants more money to spend than the father is willing to furnish and the mother plots to obtain it She may estly think the father is too close-fisted with the boy and does not give him the amount which true paternal regard would dictate and so impelled by her maternal love she seeks to make up the deficiency by some scheme which will outwit the father and get the money out of him by deception Such a course is detrimental in the greatest degree It tends directly to in- jure the object of her maternal love by breaking down all nice distinctions of honor and honesty If a boy may de- a father for selfish father whom he bound to respect love reverence and obey above all other does this with the approbation and assistance of his own mother can that boy be expected to have any fine sense of honor and honesty toward other The inevitable result of all such practice of deception will be to destroy in the mind of that boy all high respect for the truth and lead him to seek to obtain his end by any means however justifiable which seem to promise success And thus he grows to manhood with a character noticeable for being tricky dishonest and able it is not necessary to wait until he arrives at manhood to ing learned by maternal assistance to deceive his father he contrives like plots against his mother After a time she is greatly surprised to find that boy ing off the grossest deceptions upon self At first she is astonished above measure and grieved beyond expression She cannot conceive it possible that the son for whom she has done so much should turn against her with such tude She does not stop to think that he is only practicing on her the very sons she has taught him that she herself has been one of the chief means of de- with in himall nice sense of or and all true parental respect And yet such are the exact facts in the case nor is it anything uncommon to hear boys justify the deceptions they practice upon their mothers by saying she cheats the old man and I cheat all on the Too great care cannot be observed in maintaining the strictest honor and esty in all home transactions thing done and said should be the very soul of truth More girls too morally ruined in their homes and by home influence and example than anywhere else or in any other way It is done by the false lessons there taught them by the loose ideas there dered in their minds by the deceptions there practiced and by the white lies there spoken and enacted Under the influence of these they crow up with no high sense of honor with no staunch ad- herence of integrity with no firm ciple sufficient to bind them to the right and to barricade them against the saults of temptation And this must be the cuse when is not the soul of honor in all its correct tice of truth and of integrity in all its acts If the father deals by trickery and seeks gain by fraud and wins by in- trigue how can the son reasonably be expected to do any If the mother deceives neighbors is glad be- yond expression to see visitors when speaking to their faces but berates them scandalously as soon as they have de- parted from the doorstep and thus tices the thousand and one enacted lies of social and domestic life how can it be expected that her daughters will be guileless and In view of these facts we feel that it is of the greatest importance that ers should be brought to consider the danger to their children which grows out of those maternal deceptions which prevalent in many homes There is another point on which we should like to say a few words in ing and mothers It is to enjoin them to check any tendency which they may observe on the part of their children toward cruelty Children are not born with an instinct of cruelty They are gentle as angels and it is the of their parents if they become monsters when men From sheer thoughtlessness and before they begin to reflect it is common for them to do many cruel tear off the wings of insects or to transfix them with a pin when a little older to kill small birds for pleasure or to put small mals to grief These short steps toward ACTS OP GENERAL CHA AN ACT to provide for of certain expenses of District people of the Stale
