'WO CURIOUS COURTSHIPS.
One of the most curious cases of
courtship recorded happened about
the close of the seventeenth centuiy.
The daughter of n Bcikshirc baronet,
who disdained the numerous lovcts
who itttempted to win her affections,
finally fell in love with a poor at
torney,' when she mot him for the first
time, at ti wedding in Heading. She
sent him a challenge, alleging Unit
he, must gic satisfaction for injuiics
received at his hands. She appeared
masked, mid gaye him the choice of
either fighting or marrying her. His
second, who was also unaware of tho
woman's identity or the cause of
her btrange conduct, advised his
piincipal to many her. After the
ccreuipuy. during which she still
woic the mask, ilicy drove to her
lichhouic, and after withdrawing a
few momcius, she lclurncd and at
once captivated her husband by her
beauty and tasteful dress. This
man, Benjamin Child, was afterward
made High Sheriff of the town.
, "Tho - History of Women," an
English work published in, 1779, de
tails various mcihods4 of courtship
then piacticcd.in some of the Euiop
can.oolonios of Ameiica. v Jt has this
curious statement, which bbaux and
belles will find it difficult to believe :
"When two Pennsylvania lovers meet
with! any remarkable opposition from
their fricndb'tbey'go off together on
horseback, the lady tiding before and
the gentleman behind her: In this
situation they present themselves be
foie a magistiate, to whom she de
. rclarcs that she has run away with
her-lover aud has brought him' theio
to be married. So solemn, an avowal
the magistrate is not at liberty to
reject, and they arc married accord
ingly."' " Whistlcis are always good-natured,"
says a philosopher. Kciy
body knew that. It's the folks who
jfhaei to listen to the whistling that
gets ugly '

It'tb-hcr daughter slid said, " Bead

broke his leg and gone to the hospi

brightened. " Thank heaven it is

'Is ,thc lady of the liouso hi?"
asked ntr&np of tho servant, as he
v rang the door-bell of one of the
stateliest mansions ni Austin. "De

Then," said tho tramp, elevating
the remnant of a hat with a grace
Chesterfield might have envied, "tell

An indignant landlord writes de
manding the name of the party who
first suggested putting coils of rope
in sleeping rooms as a protection
against fire. He says he provided
every bed loom in his house with a
coil of rope, and the first night three
of his guests loweicd their baggage
from the sixth-story window and
skipped, leaving several days' boaid
bill unpaid. He allows that being
burned to death is bad enough, but
running u hotel for fun is a good
deal worse. Jloci. Pos-JUx.
Some husbands would bo obliged
to confess, if they told the plain un
varnished truth, that when thoy led
their wives to t'.io altar "their leader
ship came to an end. "Your future

daughter, who was on the point of
being mairicd. "Nevermind mam

wsw already dicsscd for the welding,

a compete ioveral of the rulo laid
down by the old couplet:
