.HIS GIRL.
Her eyes are lovely. I tvon't tell
What hue their loveliness may show
Her braided hair becomes her well,
In color like but ah, no ! no
That is my secret--red or brown,
It is th' prettiest hair in town !
She walks with such a dainity charm
But whether she be short or-tall,
Of rounded liub or sylph-like form.
Her figmuc suits me-that is all !
Nor do I choose the world to know
If silk her dress, or calico.
My precious girl is worth her weight,
Not in rough gold, but diamonds
fine,
And whether that be small or great
I leave the reader to divine.
Ask me to guage her solid worth
She would outweigh the whole ronud
earth!
To rhyme her praise is such delight
That I must keep it to myself,
Lest one should better verses write
And lay me gently on the shelf.
I am not jealous, but you see
This charminig girl-belongs te me.
-M. R. Bridges, in the Continent.
NLsSS PROTEGE.
It was a bright morning in spring,
and the English fleet lay at anchor
in Portsmouth harbor, awaiting the
admiral's signal to start out on a
cruise. The flag ship, a huge, for
midable ship of the line, with its
dark sides bristling with guns, was
all in commotion. The admiral,
the most famous sailor of his day,
was coming off from the shore, and
the ship was ready to receive him.
Already the guns of the squadron
were beginning to thunder forth
their welcome,nd'soon the vessel
was wreathed in smoke, and quiv
ering beneath the discharges of her
heavy ordnance, as Admiral Nelson
touched her deck, surrounded with
a brilliant staff. Standing near
the edge of the quarter-deck, and
watchihg the scene with intense
eagerness, was a young lad of
about eighteen. He was dressed
simply, but neatly, and his cheeks
glowed and his eyes kindled, as he
watched the exciting events that
were 'goingon around him. As he
returned the salute of the officers,
the admiral chanded to observe the
boy.
"Who is this ?" hc asked, turning
to the captain of the vessel,
"Hes a young lad that came on
board a few hours ago," replied the
captain. "He insists oin seeing
you, sir, as he says he has some
thing of importance to say to
you."
"Well, my lad," said the admiral,
kindly, "speak out freely."
"If you please, sir," said the boy,
"I've come to ask you to take me
to sea with you."
"Is that all you have to say,
you young scamp ?" asked the cap
tain sharply.
"Let him alone," said the ad
miral, laughing. "Whet position
do you wvant ?" hie asked, turning
to the boy.
"If you would take me as your
cabin-boy, sir," said the boy, "I
should be very glad."
"That's a poor chance for you, if
you wish to rise above it," said the
admiral, kindly;
"It will be a beginning," relilied
the lad. "If you give me a start
I'll work my way up, sir. You did
it, and I mean to do it, too."
The admiral gazed at him kind
ly, but searchingly, and then said.
with a smile :
"I'll take you with me on this
cruise, and if' you want to rise I'll
give you a chance. What is your
name ?"
"Edward Lee," was the reply.
"Very wcll, then, Edward, I take
you into my service," said the ad
miral. "I shall expect you to prove
yourself worthy of the trust."
"I'll do it, sir," said the boy, ear
nestly. as. he moved aside, respect
fully, to let the.admiral pass.
In two hours the Vanguard stood
out to sea, followed by the squad
ron, to join Earl St.. Vincent at
Gibraltar. The young valet of the
admiral made a decidedly favora
ble impression on the officers of the
ship before the completion of the
voyage.
"'Tis too bad," said the admiral
to Ms fag-captain, one day, "that
thab boy should fill a menial's posi
tion."
The captain agreed with his com
mander, .sand the result of the mat
ter was,,that; in a few days after
the arrival of the~Vanguard. at Gib
ralter, Edward2 Lee wa given. a
v-sti4~ ~ X y lS
Then came the famous cruise in
the Mediterranean, in search of
Bonaparte and his fleet. In the
terrific gale which dismasted the
admiral's ship, young Lee proved
that he merited the kindness his
great commander had shown him,
and won praise from all on board.
Then came the brief halt at Syra
cuse, the a.rrival of the wished-for
re-enforcements. and the departure
for Egypt. As the dawn of the me
morable 1st of August revealed to
the eyes of the English the tricolor
floating ovcr Alexandria, and the
French fleet in the bay of Aboukir,
Edward Lee was standing by his
chief on the deck of the flag-ship.
*There they are," burst from a
score of voices, as the distant ves
sels came in view.
"Yes," muttered the boy; "and
we'll be there too, before night."
Nelson glanced at him approving
ly.
"There's a chance for promotion
for us all in there," he said, smil
ing..
He was rilht. The fearful en
counter which carried such sorrow
and despair to so many English
homes, brought to these two fame
and honor. Th-rough t wLol ae
tion the admiral's eve was on the
young 'middy," and all through
that long and thrilling summer
night it never lost the gleam of sat
isfaction which had illumined it as
he heard the young sailor's words
in the morning. The same dispatch
that greeted him as Lord Nelson in
formed him that his request for a
lieutenancy for young Lee was
granted.
Steady devotion to his profes.
sion and conspicuous bravery in
times of danger soon made the
youthful lieutenant a noted man in
his Majesty's navy. The battle of
the Baltic was a memorable day to
him. It was truly the greatest
battle he had been in. Though
severely wounded, he refused to
go below, and stood at his post un
til the close of the a'ction. When
Sir .lyde Parker gave the signal
for discontinning the fight, Lieu
tenant Lee reported it to Lord Nel
son. The admiral, putting the
glass to his blind eye, said, with
mock gravity, "I really don't see
the signal flag. Keep our closer
battle fiag , still Q11,... Ib ats
the way I - uswe"such signafs;
Nail mine to the mast"
It seemed that the fortunes of
the great ad:niral and his protege
were mysteri:usly united, for this
victory, which made one a viscount,
made the ot:.er a first lieutenant,
though he ha( but just come of age.
He followed his commander, who
had become warmly attached to
him, through all the years that in
bervened, so that. when the great
lay of Trafa gar came, he was the
5eepnd in command to Captain
B-ardy. As the action began Lord
Nelson ,.approached him, and piac
ng his hand on his shoulder, said,
'We are going to have a hard day,
Edward. I hope you may pass
through it safely.'?
"I shall try todo my duty, my
Lord," said Lieut- :mt Lee. "But,"
be added, pointi:. to the uniform
and decorations w.hich the com
mander wore, co: trary to his cus
born, "why does your lordship
eender yourself so conspicuous to
iay ? You will surely draw upon
y'ou the fire of some marksman."
"I have a presentiment," said the
admiral, "that my race is run; so I
bave put on all my harness to-day.
[n honor I gained them," he ex
ylaimed, proudly laying his hand
n the insignia. "and in honor I
will die with then."
The presentiment was realized.
It was the last action of the great
sailor. As he fell on the deck, in
the heart of the battle, the captain
and lieutenant of the ship sprang to
him in an agony of grief.
"Go back to your post, Edward,"
he said, as the lieutenant knelt
down by him. Then he added,
gently: "God bless you, lad."
With a sad heart the young man
returned to his place. The fate
which had seemed to unite his desti
ny with that of his commander was
fully realized on this day; for, just
as the victory was3 gained, a heavy
discharge of grape from a French
ship-of-the line* swept the deck of
Lord Nelson's ship; and when the
smoke cleared away, Captain lHar
dy saw his lieute!:ant lying almost
in the same spot where the con
queror of the Nile had fallen, with
his breast torn op:~ a by the .terrible
discharge.

COURTING IN VARIOUS
LANDS.
Ths Chinese do not do much
courting. The parents save them
the trouble. They believe that
Yue-Laon, the old man of the moon,
unites with a silken cord all pre
destined couples. The parents
arrange, sometimes, for unions as
soon as the child is born. A go
between, or match-inaker, arranges
all the details, and the couple never
see each other until the wedding
day.
Perhaps one of the most novel
modes of courtship ever heard of is
that prevalent among a tribe in
Neilgherry. The- maids and bach
elors who wish to get married erect
a hut inside an inclosed space of I
ground, with a thick fence round it,
and the men without cannot see
each other. The females go -into
the hut, and the males stick long
sticks through the fence. At the
same time the women come out and
each e tch hold of a stick, the
owner of which becomes her hus
band.
At Mocha, in the East Indies, a
main does his courtship by the aid
of mnarriage brokers, to whom a
stipulated sum is paid. In Java
all the courtship is done by pa
rents, the children not being per
mitted to interfere in any way.
In Africa are found many curious
courting customs. In Sierra Leone
the negroes had a house devoted to
the instruction of their daughters,
who 'remain there a year under the
care of an old man. At the end of
this time they are dressed in their
best and assembled before the mar
riabeable young men, dance, and
the latter take.heir pick. On the
west coast, when a girl is of mar
riageable age she is led about the
village by her friends to advertise
the fact, her hands and arms adorn
ed with gold trinkets to allure the
young men. She is sold into matri
mony, the highest price being
twenty dollars, with rum and to
bacco. In Congo, when -a girl is
marriageable, she is put in a tent for
a month and suitors come and make
her preseitis. Then. ~ah,e xakes .her.
pici ehey-'ive together then for
two or three years to see if they are
suited to each other. In New
Zealand and the Feejee islands
courtship is done by capture. When
a man sees a woman he likes he
tells her to follow him.. If she re
fuses he knocks her down and
carries her off.
The method of courtship is
equally brutal. The young lover's
mode of paying his addresses is
efficacious and simple. With a
blow of his nulla-nulla, or war-club.
he stuns she object of his affections,
and drags her insensible body away
to some secluded spot, carrying
her home as soon as she recovers
her senses. "Sometimes two join
in an expedition for the same pur
pose,'' says a *riter, "and then for
several days they watch the move
mnents of., their intended victims,
using the utmost skill in concealing
their presence. When they have
obtained the knowledge they re
(iuire they wait for a dark, windy
night; then, quite naked and carry
ing only their long "jog spears,"
they crawl stealthily through the
bush i.fhtil they reach the camp
fires in front of which the girls are
sleeping. Slowly and silently they
creep close enough to distinguish
the figure- of one of their cnbras;
then one of the intruders stretches
out his spear and inser~fs its barbed
point among her thick, flowing
locks; turning the spear slowly
around, some of her hair speedily
becomes entangled with it; then
with a sudden jerk she is aroused
form her sleep, and as her eyes open
she feels the sharp point of another
weapon against her throat. She
makes a virtue of necessity, and
follows her captor."
At St. Petersburg it was long a
custom to hold a fair on Whitsun
day of the women who wanted
husbands. The women carried in
their hands silver spoons to show
their possessions. Their parents
and friends went with them to
arrange termns. The young men
strolled about, and when they saw
a girl they liked they spoke to her
custodian, and stated their pros
pects. In Bosnia, near the Danube,
young girls of the Mohammedan
faith were permitted to walk about
with their faces uncovered, and if
a man inclined to matrimony fell in
love with one of them as he passed
along he threw an embroidered hand
kerchief or some- other article on
her head or neck. .She then retired
to her home, and appeared no more
in public.
Hie~that wrestles with us strength
ens our nerves and sharpens our
will. Our antagonist is our helper.
In the adversity of our best

BLACKWELL'S IYLiND.
A IEPORTER'S VISIT TO NEW YORK'S
NOTED PRISON-:HOW CON
VICTS ARE RECEIVED.
A Tribune reporter who visited
New York's famous penal institu
tion says: To the summer pleas
ure-seeker who passes up and down
the East river. Blackwell's Island
appears an attractive spot, its natu
ral charms being too many to be
quite spoiled even by its stern and
forhidding edifices. A glimpse of
several gangs of men, clad in the
hideous uniforms of State convicts,
steadily toiling in the hot sun, un
der supervisions of armed patrol
ling keepers, presents the initial idea
to the gaze of the suffering endured
by its population from the hard toil
and iron discipline exacted and en
forced in that penal institution.
It was early morning, and sixteen
newly arrived prisoners were being
put through their preliminary exer
cises in a large chamber on the
ground floor, dignified with the
style and title of "Reception-Room."
At a desk erected in an elevated
position, his book recording admis
sions before him, sat Hall-keeper
Michael Kennedy. On the opposite
side, ranged in rows, were unmerous
large baths and three or four chairs,
such as barbers- invite their clients
to be seated in. A gauge for meas
uring the height of prisoners and a
weighing machine completed the -
list of accessories to the "Reception
Room." Presently a keeper on the
outside thrust his arm. through the
iron bars and, inserting a huge key
in the lock, opened the door. Then
entei-ed the sixteen sinners in
double file and ranged themselves
in a row before Keeper Kennedy.
"Your name ?" shouted that official
to the formost offender. It was
given. Then followed in succession
the question, "Your age ?" "Native
country ?'' "Religion ?" "Occupa- t
tion ?" "Been here before ?" and if t
the answer were in the affirmative,
"How many times ?" "Under what
name or names ?" These questions
being satisfactorily aiswered and
the replies recorded, the prisoner
was handed over to an attendant
who measured his height, and t
weighed him, the result of these
two -operations, -together -with the '
color of his. hair, eyes and complex
ion, being quickly added to the
statement and spread before Keeper
Kennedy. Each man was then
made to strip and enter a bath and, t
under the vigilant eyes of the keeper t
and his satellites, none failed to
escane a thorough washing. This
cleansing process completed, each
prisoner dressed himself in the suit
provided for him by the State
which, whatever may be said of its
utility, canuot by any stretch of the
imagination be considered nsthetic.
The clothes belonging to each pris-e
oner were then collected, neatly
folded, made intopsrcels and labeled
with the owner's names previous to
being put away. Unless a man
were sentenced to a very short term i
and raisid an objection to it, he t
was next shaved, after which he
was considered to be duly prepared j
ror the prison life before him. Dep- i
uty Warden Osborne rapidly scan
ned the column headed "Occupa- c
tion," and assigned every man to t
some particular keeper's gang ;
some to work in the quarry, some
to the blacksmith's and some to the e
carpenter's shop. After this all
that remained to be done was for
Keeper Kennedy to show the pris
oners their cells and explain the
manner of cleaning them. Then
they were marched off, every man
tohis gang. c
The number of prisoners admitted t
daily varies greatly, but approxi- c
mnately, it may be said to average t
ten. At present there are 700 male e
and 15>0 female prisoners in the I
penitentiary, brit, although ott o,ne t
occasion-in January, 1878-it ac
commodated the large number of a
1,184, it is much overcrowded. and
the system of "doubling up," as put- e
ting two prisoners in one cell is 1
termed, is in some cases found to t
be. necessary.
A MORNING SCENE.
t
About eight o'clock one morning
a man smoking plug tobacco in an e
old clay pipe walking out of a 1
Michigan avenue saloon with a rat g
in a trap. -He looked neither to a
the right nor the left until he had c
reached the middle of the street. i
Then he placed the trap on the i
ground and whistled for his dog. I
If he had a dog, the animal did not 1
respond, but the public did. In t
less than two minutes thirty men I
were rushing to the spot.
"Hi. there ! Don't let him out till I
get my dog?" shouted one.i
"Hold on ! Wait for the dogs !"<
yelled half a dozen voices at once. i
"Keep cool and form a circle !"<
commanded a policeman, and he .
took a firmer grip of his baton.
The man with the trap spreada<
large handkerchief over it and
waited. He was not a bit excited
On the contary he was as placid
as a chip sailing in the *ash-dish.
-"Whar' did ye catch him?" in
quired a newsboy.
The placid man did not deign to
"What'll ye take fur him?"
asked another, but his iuquiry was
treated with a silent contempt.
Then four or five men came run
ing up with dogs under their arms,
and ten or fifteen dogs on foot fol
lowing behind. The-re was a figft
between a bull-dog and a Newfound
land, and there would have been a
row between owners had not. a
econd policeman appeared. Order
was finally restored. The dogs
were arranged in a circle and held
by their collars, and the placid man
slowly knocked the ashes from his
pipe, looked carefully around, and
then raised the trap and shrook the
rat out. All the dogs made a rush,
but in ten seconds each and every
,anine walked off on his ear and
seemed to be hurt in his feelings.
A. boy stepped forward and held
,he rat up to view.
"It's a crockery rat !' he yelled
us he whirled it around.
"Yes, it vhas a grogery radt, and
ie cost me den cents!' calmly re
?lied the placid man as he walked
)ff with the trap.-Detroit Free

A DETERMINED SEARCI.
The captain of one of the ocean
ines of steamers, running from
3oston was called upon by a Cus
om House officer a few days ago,
vho said he desired a word pri
ately.
"What is it ?" interrogated. the
:aptain.
"My instructions are to search
rour ship."
"Search my ship," replied the as
orished captain, "what for ?"
"For $10,00 worth of silks -which 1
t is reported at the Custom House
ron have concealed in your ves- I
el. 4
"All right" said the captain, "go
ihead and do your duty."
First the contents of the cap- t
sin's cabin were overhauled, then
hose of the officers, according to
ank, but no silk was found.
"I guess, Captain, that there's no
Leed to continue the search any
urther," suggested the Custom '
louse man.
"Yes, there is," added the cap- f
ain, "you say your orders are to
earch this vessel. an A'm going'to
ee that you do it, or else I shall
nake a formal report of your re
hsal to do so."
Calling the first officer, he said:
"You will please take this gen
leman all through the ship and see
