An attempt was made to shoot King Christian, of Denmark, the other day, and the shooter was arrested and brought before the King. Christian told him he could not praise his skill as a marksman, and advised him to practice before he repeated the shot, and then released him.
Rev. T. L. Drury, of Rutland, Vt., a few weeks since preached a sermon on skating rinks and masquerades. He said the skating rinks met with his approval as long as they did not interfere with the church and duties of Christians to attend divine worship. As long as skating rinks remain pure and moral, so long he should stand up for them. - Mirror of American Sports. St Joseph Herald Saint Joseph, Michigan February 21, 1885
A phenomenal spring is said to exist at Kittery, Me. Whenever a drought becomes so severe that other springs go dry, this one bubbles up until rain enough falls to replenish the others, when it immediately subsides.
