On (jlmlo mountain. West Virginia, resides the "coincident Franklins," a family which �h, in one respect ut least, the most rnxuliar of nny in tlio whole country. Tho Franklins are n family of coiiK'id'.nc'l's. The father and mother were married on the Mtu of October. They have had nine children, all of whom were born on tlw Mth of October. Five of the nine are dead, and, atrannetoBay, every single one of them breathed his last on the fateful lHh day of October. The name of the head of the family is Joshua Franklin. He was a Confe.d.erato soldier, and was captured twice and had two brothers killed in the war between theMatis. All four of these mishaps and misfortlines of war occurred on the memorable 1-lth day of October. In the neighborhood where tho Franklin family live, and, in fact, for miles outside of their immediate latitude, tho Franklins of Glade mountain" aro looked upon with superstitious awe. It ia said that not a single human being who knows of the mystery surrounding the family can be prevailed upon to stay in the houso or about the premises on either the day or night of Oct. 14.-St. Louis Republic.

What do you think of a woman who can run a factory and turn out 1,000 cigar boxes a day? Think sho is a myth? Well, she is not, hut a tall, fair and forty specimen of womanhood who can balance 200 pounds and manage a force of twenty people. Her name ia Mrs, Mary Bleffert, her factory ia ou Attorney street, and her husband is tho head assistant of her establishment. Not very many years ago this majestic merchant was employed in a box factory with hundreds of other little women. She was quick wilted, ambitious and restless. A young fellow named Bluffert had charge of her division. He admired her skill, lovo followed admiration and marriage love. There wiu no wedding tour, no kalsuimiu'd pastry, no satin ribbons and no foolish expenditures. There was a honeymoon, though, and it has not waned, either. There was a toy savings bank, 1hen a bank account, ;i lot of dreaming and planning and then the iJlcflort box factory. It is light that the strong should lead, and that's what Mary BleftVrt has been doing for the last live years, and that's why she is mistress of a prosperous business.-New York World.

Peter Cannon, tho Swift ami Tlreteii S)ii'iiiti>r from Scotland. A rapid and seemingly tireless runner is the Scutch athlete Peter Cannon, who recently crossed the big pond to try and show Americans a thing or two a bout sprint running. Cannon was born in the city of Sterling Jan. U, 1S57, anil measures 5 ft. 8 in. from the top of his head to the soles of his feet. In condition his weight is 140 pounds. His Jlrst public appearance as a sprinter was n ea r Ala n Chester, England, in Sep-tcmber.lSSS, where -he met and easily defeated William C u m m i n gs. As Cannon was corn-par a t i v e 1 y unknown Cuimnings was handicapped 200 yards in the race of four miles, 1-nt Cannon won by yards in lUm. 2t;,s.

On May 14, lbSS, Cannon broke the famous and long standing three mile record of Jack White at Govan by defeating Hunter, who was given a start by 350 yards, in 14m. 10J 4's. On Aug. 4,1888, Cannon won a mile race from the scratch, leaving McDerraott, Smith and Young in the rear. Atthe Lush Highland gathering two weeks later he captured a two mile handicap from tho scratch, defeating Smith 300 yards, Ferguson 135 yards.

W. E. Mains, who is at prcsout with the St. Paul Baseball club, is a splendid specimen of athletic manhood. lie was born In North Windham, Me., July 7, 1SG8. ne stands 0 ft. 3)� in, and weighs 190 pounds. Ho niado his debut as a professional with the Portland, Me., club, of the New England league, in August, 1837, and ho performed so well on his initial effort that ho was retained for tho remainder of tho season, Sext season ho sighed with the Davenport, la., club, and his work was simply phenomenal. Me pitched in twenty-five games, winning twenty-one of them, and it was chiefly owing to his good work Colored Sculpture* It may not bo generally known that much of tho sculpture of ancient Athens was originally painted in bright colors. Until recently archaeologists maintained the theory that the refined art of the Greeks had found its expression in tho pure form of the marble, disregarding color; and any evidences to the contrary were destroyed, us only giving riso to troublesome theories, subversive of the true worship of Greek art.

The American critics have for a long time waxed enthusiastic whenever the name of Car mem u;i, the Spanish danseuse, has been mentiom-.l. Before long she will have a rival in America, and it remains to be seen how thi- second claimant for honor and dollars will bo received. Carmericitais very beautiful, but Itlssaid that Senorita Otvro, who is coming, is more lovely still; Carmencita is sinuous, graceful nnd Impassioned, hut those who have seen Carolina Otero say that to compare to her wonderful glides and Bkips and wriggles the glides and skips and wriggles of Carmenclta is profanation. It is certain that whatever Otero's powers as a dancer are, she haa two advantages over Carmenclta. One is thnt she is the daughter of a general and is well edu- pitchkr w. e. maiss. .in the box that the Davenports retired at the end of the season as champions of tho Interstate league. In August Anson secured him for the Chicago club; but after pitching in only ono game, which ho won, Mains was taken ill and was released Oct. 1. Last year he donned a St. Paul uniform, and his record was a good one. He pitched In forty-uiuo games, winning thirty-eight, and stood ninth on the hatting list of the Western Association with an average oi .323. The St. Paul management retained his services for tho present season, btu though playing better than ever this year ho has received poor support from a very weak team. His record up to date Is thirty-four games played, seventeen games won. He is recognized as one of the bv^t batters iu the Western Association, and he is a close second wit h an average of .aoo. This season he has made fifteen two-base hits, threefhrec-liase hits ami three home runs. Mains, in addition to being a first, elrvw Iwtor and pitcher, is an excellent first baseman.
