Female Jumpist.
The following from the Boston H'raTd, (of
Ihe 8th ult,) convinces us that the woman of
that modern Athena has daring to nndertake
and ability to accomplish anything, if ihe
think that, at the end, she will have gained a,
little masculine fame or notoriety. Already
we liavo found her in the "ring" ; now we find
hpr to "too the mark" and carry off the
stakes:
"Several weeks ago several of the young
people who reside in the vicinity of Savin Hill
cametogethor and on the spur of the moment
improvised a jumping match fpra small puree
between Mike Flynn and a young man named
Murphy. In ibis match Marphy was badly
worsted, whereupon his sister Kate, a bright,
strong and sprightly girl of about twenty sum
mers becatre very indignant and gave out to
her companions that she could ouijump ilike
yiynn if her brother could not. Katie became
very earnest in her asseverations, and to satisfy
bora 'match whs made for a purse of $75
which she won. This greatly shamed the Flymi
jompUt so Mi Kate was challenged to anolh
or contest lor 200 a tide which came off yes
terday afternoon. The arrangements being
all completed the exercises began, Flynn lead
ing of with a leap of ten feet and three inches.
Katie then took her pci-ition, cheeredon by her
frionds, and niado the leap, clearing the dis
tance often feet four and a half inches. The
second leap was called for and Flynn cleared
ten feet seven inches. But Katie was again
introduced, her friends cheering her on and
feeling confident she would beat, Carefully
she placed her littlo gaiter boots qn the line,
and straining every mutcle in her well knit
frame made the leap clearing ten feet nine and
threo quarterlinches. This wa3 too much for
her competitor and amid the plaudit3 of the
whole company Katie retired with her purse of
$100.
Not a marrying man.
A year or two before his death Artemus
Ward visited the Mormons at Salt Lake City.
On hjs return he wrote a book giving an ac
count of what he saw and heard, in which,
among other things, he tells of the narrow es
cape he inada from beinj married to seventeen
joungwidows, as follows:
"1 regret to say that efforts were made to
make a mormon of me while I was in Utah.
It was leap year when 1 was there, and
ceventepn young widow's, the wives cf u de
ceased mormon, offered me their heart and
hands.
I calied on them and taking their soft, white
hands in mine, which made eighteen hands to.
gether, I found them in tears.
And I said, 'why is thus? What is the reaton
of this thusness?'
They hovo a sigh, seventeen sighs of djf
ferentsize. They said: 'Oh! soon thou wilt
be gonested awayl'
I told them wheal got ready to leave a place
I wentett.
They said. 'Doth not like us ?'

I also said, 'I hope your intentions are hon
orable, as I am a lone child, my parents being
far, far away.'
They then said, Wi!ttiotmarry us?'
I said 'Oh ! no ! It cannot wa3.
Again they asked me to roairy them and
again I declined, when they cred :
Uh I L'ruel man ! This is no much 1 Oh !
this is loo much !
