her proportions, viewed in corn-t

THE CHEERFUL GOAT.
The town goat has the run of
the town. He is not domestic in
his habits. He is seldom ever
seen asleep. The goat is composed
mainly of horns, hair and diges.
tive orgons. When not engaged
in butting the breath Out of some
member of his own famiiy, or
peeling -the bark off the neigh
bors' fruit trees, he may be found
standing on an empty beer keg,
iu fronL ot the corner grocery,
gleefully cbewing wrapping paper
and empty sardine boxes. The 1
towc goat is respected and feared
by all who are acquainted with
bis eccentrieities of character. He
is a very reliable animal. He can
be relied on to eat a week's wash
ing, break several windows, and
pursue tbirty-seven dogs in the ad.
joining yard all in one day, and
not work halt the time. Police
men shoot at him, boys try to dis
courage him with stones, and
housekeepers empty kettles of
hot water ~on him. As a result of
these assaults, he usually bas chips
and splinters broken off him at
every curve and angle of his anat,.
omy, yet withal he is heeriul and
froliusome*. His jaunty tail gives
him a delouair aad i2Lll4l" "ap
pearance, that Causes some people
to surmise that te isn't all that
he should be, but they judge him
too hastily, as people of strong
prejudices are prone to do.
These remarks about the goat
are suggested-by a 'incider3 that
happeied last week to an old
party . named MuWbirter,. who
lives in Wiseonstn, and who ow-na
a-goat. Old man McWhirter lives
on an ot'mial diet and th in
terst of his money. On Monday
evening of last, weAk, Mr. Mc.
Whirter was out in the yard feed
ing the cow. He had taken off
his coat and laid it Ou the ence.
In the pocket of. his coat was a
morocco pocket book containing
governimelt bonds Lu thieamto)unt
of $2,000. W1hy.. Mr. MeWiAirter
carried tile bonds in ii-- 1weket
instead of piacing tbel; inl the
safe, we wer' not ita- When he
had attemt-u to i hu'waLts of the
cow and turied Lio.i,eL bli- cuL, be
found that gannet LAying in t,he
mud. The goat had ptlled it
off the fencee, and niow stood
balanucin.g himself on the roof
of the chicken coop. As he
came within the range of Mc
Whirter's vision, andl a rock that
the old mn.z propeiled in his di
.rection, he w n in the act, of mnas
ticating what was evidently tbe
remnant of a red morocco pocket
As the awful and disastrous
character of the misfortune dawn
ed on -MuWhirter, and he realized
that big two thousand dollars in
bonds were Jied away in the di
gestivye machinery of a four dol
lar- goat, he gave vent, to his feel.
ings in a yell that soundled like
tbv wail of a b'agpip)e leading a
funeral procession ; anda with dis
may in every feature and a three
tinted hay-fork in his hand, he
went for that goat. *The goat de
cided not to wait for him. He
did not tarry but proceeded
with a celerity and buoyancy that
was miraculous in a four legged
animal-to put a large area of the
landscape between himself and his
owner. The goat went streaking
down the street, the irrascible old
man, coatless and hat.less, in full cry
in his wake. Xs the pageant camne
tearing along, the goat blea,ting
a derisive defiance and old Mc
Whirter waving the hay fork in
the ambient gloaming and calling
on the populace to 'head off that
$2,000 bond,' pedestrians crawled
up on the fences, hack-drivers
drove into alleys, unt,il the pro.
cession passed. MeWhirter fell
over two baby buggies, entangled
his hay fork in, an alderman's ear,
and was s.ev'eral times tripped up
by po'uce.ne". whoe thought he
was a crazy uman, for they couldn't
understand why' any one could
take so much absorbing interest
in an ordinary goat thate could
be bought any day at $30 a dozen.
McWbirter stopped not, neither
did he stay his footsteps, but after
each delay increased his speed,
aad renewed his imnortunate peti-1
thief!' etc., etc. Over sbrubberq
in front gardens, and out througl
back-yard gates, they keit o
their mad career, until at last th4
goat was corralled in a stable. A
butcher was sent for, and, undei
instructions from MRr. McWhirter
cut the goat's throat and thez
pried him open with an-axe. In
side him was found an assortt;eu
of clothes-pins, manilla paper
hay, undeilothing, a child's sboe
and a piece of a broken mirror
but their was no trace of the U
S. bond-i. McWhirter tried t(
swear, but emotion choked -hit
utterance. He directed the 4atch
er togive-the remains to the poor
and went bore in-a back, to finc
his pocket-book and the bondt it
the pocket of coat where be had

tests,.drew public attention to the
outrages, and the people gave
their opinion of them very freel~
at the polls.
The ~Democrats in the nexi
House have great responsibilitiei
to meet, and important duties tc
discharge. They canpnot afford te
redr-ess per-sonal griefs or to stoop~
to personal revenge. The time
has come when contested electionm

allowances for alleged expenses.
Both parties have countenanced

Te saie. questions asked by our '

At the commercial centres, where

For females of superior accomplish.

'Piaally :found- refuge in a Department
at Washington, whera.her wonderful C
linguistic acquirements were useful a

rest many. Americaoewomen is that i
they are too proud to become subject I
to those who are- more fortunate than.
themselves, and,- in the South, there..
is. arace condition-that makes this an
almost. impassable -barrier. A New 4
York contemporary, who has been g
confronted- with this dilemma, as we
are, advises a elever young woman to
keep her:accomplishments weli out of
sight, and- eqra aa good a salarykas

familiar illustration of .the dancing0
master in Gil Blas who wgs. incensed
that he was offered only four times thed
pay given. :toe the. philosopher. If. I

had this wits about him he wouldn
have turned, dancing master.
Taoo many women are taught to be
teachers,. and the :market, to fuse aa

What the girls, we dare say, is such
practical training as may fit them for
just such oceupaions as French

where young women could be taughte

God knowys we wish all the girls who
aspire to earn their living had a bet
