NO FULLBACKS IHT HEAVEN.
A little Pullback sought one day
The gates of paradise ;
St. Peter wiped his spectacles
Aud rubbed his ancient eyes.
And throngs of female angels came,
With curious gaze the while,
Intent, as ladies always are,
To see the latest style.
The Saint put on his glasses then
An observation took :
"What! what!" hesaid, "this traverses
The laws of 'inusn't look.'
"Tied back in front ' Piled up behind !
'Twill never do, I fear !
The thing is too ridiculous
You cannot enter here."
What did she do ? My curious friend,
She got behind a tree :
And in a jiffy she was dressed
As angels ought to be.
St. Peter kissed her then, and said,
"Pass in, my little dear ;
But mind, you musn't introduce
Such naughty fashions here."

A gentleman of autobiographic
turn relates how he was instruct
ed in the custom of taking toll,
by a sprightly widow, during a
moonlight sleigh - ride with a
merry party. He says :
The lively widow L. sat in the
same sleigh, under the same buf
falo robe, with me.
'Oh! oh! don't, don't!" she ex
claimed, as we came to the first
bridge, at the same time catching
mo by the arm and turning her
veiled face towards me. while her
little eyes twinkled through the
'Don't what?" Tasked. "I'm
not doing anything."
"Well, but 1 thought you wpre
going to take to" " roplied th
Toll!" I reic. " What'?
"Well, I dech-r, l" ene-l tl,f
widow, her clea: i tut :i ringing
out above the muir wf rhe hlis, (
"you pretend y cl-m't know
what toll is!"
"Indeed I don't, then," T said,
laughing; "explain, if you please."
"You never heard, then," said
the widow, most provokingly,
"you never heard that when we
are on a sleigh-ride the gentle
man always that is, sometimes
when they cross a bridge, claim a
kiss, and call it toll. But I never
I said that I never heard of it
before: but when we came to the
next bridge I claimed the toll and
the widow's struggles to hold the
veil over her face were not enough
to tear it At last the veil was
removed, her round rosy face was
turned directly towards'mine, and
in the clear night of a frosty moon
the toll was taken, for the first
time in my experience. Soon we
came to a long bridge, with sev
eral arches; the widow said it was
no use to resist a man who would
have his own way, so she paid
the toll without a murmur.
"But you won't take toll for
every arch, will you?" she said
so archly that I could not fail to
exact all ray dues; and that was
the beginning of my courtship.

How He Wanted His Picture Taken
Recently a young man with a
wart on his nose, dropped in at a
photograph gallery, and remark
ed that he wanted some pictrus
"Will you have it standing or a
bust?" queried the artist.
"Bust!" exclaimed the fellow as
he picked up his hat. "Bust?
Mister, do I look like a man who
would come into a picture gallery
to get on a bust?"
They explained to him and fi
nally persuaded him to sit long
enough for a negative. The pic
ture was a good one, and the nose
stood out like a black cat in a bay
The fellow looked at it and as
he handed it back said, "Shoot
again, old pard, and see if you
can't make the wart look like a
piece of chewing gum,"
They told him that it couldn't
"Well, see here, now, pard,"
he pleaded, "my name's Truffles,
and I'm engaged to a girl back in
Injiana, and she wants my pic
ture. She don't know I've got
this wart; it's growed siuce I left
there, and if you could just rub it
out of the picture or make it look
like something she's familiar with
-a slice of bacon for instance I'd
They fixed it up for him, and
when he went out he chuckled :
"That'll fetch 'er; she'll just na
turally think I'm floatin' round
in solid comforts, like bacon, and
string beans, and sich."

DARING HIGHWAY ROBBERY.
From the Silver City Herald, N. M.
The Eastern Bound Coacli Stopped
by Three OTon and All the Bul

Believed of tlieir Money and
Valuables. Probable Loss $30,

The mail coach, which left this
place for the East Tuesday even
ing, was taKen m by three road
agents in Cook's canon about three
a. m. the following morning and
robbed of all the treasure it con
Two passengers, Messrs. Thorn
as F. Conway (lawyer) and John
S. C'hisum (cattle king) also suf
fered by the depletion of their
pockets to the last nickle, and had
the robbers caused them to slip
their wind they never could nave
crossed the river Styx, for the
reason that the legal tender would
have been wanting to pay Charon
the ferriage fee. Their watches
were taken and everything else
of value except a photograph of
Don Thomas' sweetheart, which
we "presume they rejected as va
lueiess on account of the squint
in the lett eye.
The robbers after completing
the job ordered the coach and its
inmates to the right about and
travel in the direction whence
they came, which they did with
about the same alacrity as a weav
er's shuttle, whilst the highway
men went east.
The stage, after traveling a mile
ami a half or perhaps a mile and

The reason why the sheriff and
other civil officers have not taken
hold of the matter is explained
by the fact that there is no fund
provided by law to repay them
the necessary outlay for a chase
after fugitives from justice. The
governer has it in his power to
offer a reward, but where's the
money to come from ? The ma
jor part of the revenue goes to
pay district attorneys for prose
cuting John Doe and Richard Roe
for the crime of playing "seven

what little is left to pay interest
on bonded indebtedness there is
'one wherewith to apprehend
.riminals, and consequently no
one is secure from the red-handed
assassin and robber.
Valuable, if True. The
Fincastle Herald has been inform
ed that a piece of iron hung in
fruit trees will effectually prevent
the ravages of frost. The infor
mant states that the night before
the freeze in April last, he hung
several pieces of old iron in ten of
his peach trees, and the trees were
loaded with peaches, the yield
being not less than 75 bushels.
The fruit of the remaining trees
(sixty-five in number) in the or
chard were all killed. A piece of
horse-shoe was hung in a cherry
tree in the same orchard, and the
yield, was abundant, whiie on
three adjacent trees the fruit was
entirely killed. He says that the
idea originated with his mother,
that he by her instructions when
a boy he tried the same thing fre
quently, and with the same re
sult. This is important if true,
and it will cost but little to test
the truth of it.
On Christmas night a citizen of
Fresno, Cal., while in a state of
mental abstraction, entered a
drug store and poured himself
out a copious draught from a jar
containing an assortment of pre
served snakes, tarantulas, scor
pions, etc. The infusion had no
unusual effect upon his system.
