The Boston Young Lady.
she comes, sees' and conquer km
The Boston young lady has arrived at
Saratoga. I mean the,real literary young
lady?the Siege of Ttpy girl She grew
np in Boston and graduated at Vassar
College last year. She" wears eye glasses,
and full of wisdom. vBhe scans Homer,
rattles tho verb ' lipo'' like the mult;
plication table sings Anacreon to the
uid melodies, and puff up her hair after
the statue of the Venns of Milo. There
is no end to her knowledge of Iheclaasi
eal dictionary and when it comes to
Charles Lamb or Sydney Smith?South
eiPA&iJilej^ur^thos^jhn never wrote
but got the credit of every good joke in
England?she can say their jokes as a
TJatholic says his beads, If you ask her
how she likes babies, she answer:
"How ?' Well, as Charles Limb re
marked, 'I like 'em b?b?boiled."
A*k her anything, and she will always
lug in a quotabinn fro'u sotno pcdinlic
old fool like Dr. Johnson or Swift or.
Jack Buosby, just to show you that she
is up in iife, -iuru, and that you arc?
green. Not a single original idea, but
one constant 'as Socrates said,' or 'as
Pinto remarked,' or 'as Diogenes obser
ved.' Yesterday, some sharp, shrewd,
original New York young ladies got hold
of the pedantio business, and iutrodueed
a funny paraphase on Miss Boston's

'Well, 'yes,' as tho poot observed.'

"No,' as the Lord Mayor of London

The Boston girl is so well posted that
she wins triumphs over you by a sort
of literary "bluff" game. She attributes
sharp quotations to distinguished men,
and, conscious that you dare not question
their authenticity, of course she "bluffs"
you right down. When you go to your
room, and read up, and fiud she has real
ly "bluffed* you of courseyouarcti>o gentle
to mention it, and so this Boston girl goes
on plumming herself at the expenses of
New Yerk gallantry.
Yesterday the Boston girl was at it
again. Somebody asked hor who was
.the oldest, Mcthuscla or Dcutcrono
"Why, Barns, tho ooinnentator says
Deuteronomy came bofore Numbers'?
of course ho b too old to be computed.
Now, I know she lied, but still I had
a doubt about it. I didn't want to break
out and say Deuteronomy came after
Nombers, and then have those miserable
Boston fellows say with that terrible
upward inflection, How aro you, Eli
Perkins ! 01 no. But when I did go
up to my room I sent out to a gentleman
in Saratoga who hss severel bibles to
lend, and got the Pentateuch?and sure

On The Shoemaker's Ponies.
BY EDWARD EOOLESTON.
The Germans have a periphr&se for
walking?they "ride on the shoemaker's
ponies." In the early West it by no
means followed that a maxi who had feet
had shoes so that the Iloosicr equivalent
for traveling afoot is "riding on shank's
marcs." Now these circumlocutions
have an air of slightiug the feet as means
of locomotion, as if one would affect to
have ridden when ho had walked. It
is like the device of the negro dandy
wflo used to buekcl a spur upen each
heel, taking a riding whip in hand to
walk to. meeting.
We have no more legs. There is now
going on an atrophy of tho lower extrc
mi ies. I once heard a witty lady,
mocking at popular mock modesty apeaks
of her pedestals. We aro all coming to
this. There will soon be nothing but
pedestals, and those of the slenderest
sort. Vi hether the next stage will see
us developed into legless ebeings is a
speculation more curious than practical,
There is no exercise so fine as walking
if one knows how to take it. When a dis
ease in one part of tho body 'becomes in
curable & physician will sometimes nt
tack it by revulsion"?that is, attacking
some other part, and thas diverting the
sickucss from its stronghold. So a man
uses his head until the brain is weary,
needs to tire his lego.
You complain that you cannot walk.
Because you do do not observe the
rules. Walk easily. Take time. Do
not hurry yoursdf in- o exhaustion, lie
gin by walking as you can bear it.
Every now and thcu I backslide, get
nervous, think the sun hurts me aud
take to riding in street cars. Threo
months ago a mile wearied me. The
circulation tended to the brain. Sleep
was difficult. I determined to seek ro
lief as before in walking. By'walking
at first two milcss. and afterward iocrcu
?ing the distance, I was soon able to
trudge off ten miles in an afternoon
without regard to heat. Sunstroke I It
is not people who live right and oxer
eise frcoly that suffer from the sun.
Did you ever sit in a Turkish bath?
The first throe minutes you were ready
to fuiut, to burst, to die, to blow up
with the intolerable dry heat. But
when onco tho petspi ration had started
and all tho little safety valves were open
you were able to take with pleasure
thirty or forty degrees moce of heat than
yon had when an explosion seemed imcci
nent. To when you are nervous about
walking, aud the heat seems daogorous,
you havo only to start off in a steady,
easy gait. At the eud of a mile walking
is delightful. You wouldn't ride if you
could.?Hearth and Home.
Glimpses of Comnilng Prosperity.
Newspaper correspondents who are
making tours of the Southern States re
ports that new manufacturing schemes
of all sorts are much talked of, and that
there is a fair prospect of a revival of
industry. Revival is hardly tho word,
however. It is a rather a creation.
The district which before the war wore
destitute of the slightest trace of tm.nu.
factoring enterprise are those which are
now indicated as the Lowe'Is sod Mao
chcetersof the future, and the only
drawback to the accomplishment of the
desired results is the waut of capital.
Yet the statistics of the experiments
slready made show that tho promise of
a good return for investments U not
without foundation. One correspondent
writes thai "the past fivo years have
witnessed a great revival of the old year*
ning after maohinery, that the land is
half secretly overrun with surveyors and
speculators in mill property, who are
prospecting /or 'advantageous situations
for future factories, and that those mills
which are ready at work, cotton twills I
especially, pay dividends which are 1
almost beyond belief. Dividends of
twenty five per cent, per annum aro said
to be common among the few mills now
in operation, and in one Instance a profit
of fifty per cent has been obtained. The
same correspondent dwells upon the ad
vantages of Southern mills over those of
the North, arising from the facts that
th^y use the cotton fresh from the field,
before its staple has been sudjected to the
pressure of baling, that the cost of bag
ging and hooping and transportation is
saved and that tho development of the
new coal field of the South will make
luel cheap and so reduce the outlay for
motivo power. These strong points and
if thoughtful and sensiblo Southerners
can be brought to see that the use of
their own resources and the application
of their own hard labor are thereal pro
cesses through which wholesome reha
bilitation must come, tho next census
will axhibit a striking contrast to that
of 1870.?N. Y. Com. Advertiter.
The Squire's Visitors.
HOW RURAL RELATIYES ARK TREATED
Squire Blinks, a retired old gentle
man, lives away down on Seventh street.
1'he other morning three old ladies from
Macon county came to his house on a
visit. They used to know his wife be
fore she was married. The Squire wel
comed them to his mansion, and then
went eut to the barn and swore for half an
hour. While he wr? soothing himself
thus his wifo called him into the house.
Shu handed him an umbrelai to keep off
the sun, and said the ladies had walked
up from the depot and* left some things
there for him to bring np. So he
brought them up, making two round
trips for tho basfets, band boxes, and
uo black oil cl^frtra^rttatjbags, allot
which the Squire discourteously sailed
'infernal old trops.'
As he sat in the back kitchen wiping
his brow, his wife brought out the mar
ket basket and said tbore was not a bit
of sugar or tea iu the house, and sho re
marked that while he was going down
tow.i he might as well get the molasscs
jug filled. The Squire aksed her how
long thoso old migratory pelicans were
going to stay. And she asked him if
he thought she would be so rude as to
ask them. Then the Squire wont down
and laid in the groceries. When he
got back his wife said she hid forgotten
something and thought of it just when
it was too lato? She must have- some
corn-starch. The Squire asked her if
any of the old scarce-crows had dropped
the least hint as to the duration of their
visit. She said not. The Squire looked
sad and disconted.
When he had the paper of corn-starch
on the table, his wife said they must
have a cod fish for dinner. One of the
ladies said in the course of conversation,
that sho wss fond of codfish. The
Squire asked if the old buzzards hed yet
committed themselves on the extent of
thoir present roost. She said he ought
to be ashamod of himself
When he slapped the cod fish down
on the table with a whang his wife got
him to bring in some water and wood:
said Mr. SpooStugjr said she never
-dine 1 without ale, and tho Squire was
asked if he would go down and bring
up a bottle. He asked if be shouldn't
go into the parlor and get thoso old
cormorants to make out a list of what
they did like, and furthermore asked if
they were yet silent as to when they
thought they could go away
He tot the ale, and for fear ho would
have to trot down tejsn again, ho hirod
an express wagon and Ibaded it with all
sorts of garden truok, a bottle of whis
key, a box of sardines, a pound of snuff,
some eove oysters, dried apples, beans,
smoked tongue, out and dried tobacco,
..pickled walnuts, caunod corn, mack oral,
split peas-, eto.
She next day the Squire was sent
down town only oight times.
Early the next morning ho started out
into the country to see a. man. When
he got home he asked his wife if any
time had qeen set for the departure. On
the evening of the following Monday
one of the ladies said she thought they
ought to start on the next Friday, so as
to reach home before Sunday. -Mr*.
Biuks said they oughtn't to bo in a hnx
ry. The Squire groaned and said they
ought to stay and make thoir visit out.
On. Friday morning the Squire 'had an
express wagon before the doof. Bus the
wife said the ladies had concluded to
stay until after the Fourth. Then sat
Squire went out to saw wood and eon
verso with himself.
How Hans Got Even.
Once on a time there lived a jovial
Dutchman, whose name was Hans Von
Shrimpetifiel. He had a wife. He had
a little grocery, where beer and such
personal property were sold. He gave
credit to a parcel of day customers, andk
kept his book with a piece of white
chalk on the head-board of the bedstead.
One day Mrs. Shrimpetifiel, during a
neat fit, took uyoo herself to olean the
house aud things. So she did, and she
cleaned tho head boad, and with soap
aud water settled the old man's accounts
by wiping away every ohalk mark.
Pretty soon, before long, the old Ten?
der of things came into his house and
saw what a ruin bis frau had wrought*
Then ho said : . .
"Meio Gott, Fran Shrimpetifiel, what
for you make a ruined man of me 7 I
guess not ? You make wipe away all
dem names and figures what I ova them
feller's what's goin^ to pay before the*
get ready, and I loose mores zwio hund
His frau left the room in fear sb4
disgust. When she returned he had
recovered the head-board with chalk
marks. Then she said:
"Hans, you have make them all right,
"Well, mein tearer frau, 1 make the
figures all right, but I put downsaome
petter names as dem old fellers rot yon

Tai Deacon's Doo.?tt wo* a greet *
many years ago, at a camp meeting, that
Brother Higgins, a good man but
nnssionatelv fond cf dogs, earns in one
day necompanicd by a black aad tea
hound. Somebody asked him to addreaa
the congregation, and he mounted the
stand for the purpose, while his dog sat
down upon his haunches immediately im
front, looking at his mas'er. -lathe
midst of the discourse, which entertain
ed us much, another dog came up, and
after a few social whiffs at Brother Hlg
gins' dog, began to examine the hind
leg of the latter rrith his teeth k apparent
ly for the purpose of asccrtaiaing if it
was tender. An animated. coeu)fjl?jeA
sued, and one of the congregation came for
ward for the purpose of separating the
animals. His efforts were not wholly
successful. He would snatch at the' leg
of Higgins' dog, but before his hand got
thero the yellow dog would be on that
side, and would probably take an in
cidental and cursory bite at the deacon's
hand. Brother Higgles paused In his
discourse and watched the deacon. Then
he exclaimed, "Spit in his eye, Brother
Thompson, spit in the hound's eye H*
Brother Thompson did, and the fight
ended. "But I just want to say," eon
tinued Mr. Higgins, "that outside of the
sanctuary that dog of mine can cat up
any salmon colored animal in the State,
and then ehaw up the bones of its aneea
tors for four generali?.ns, without turn
ing a hair! You understand me?"
Then the services proceeded.
A Sad Situation*.?A short tisae
since a gentleman with long, fair
whiskers, and dressed in the height of
fashion, entered a hosiers in Vienna,
and requested the shop-woman, who
happened to be alone, to show him some
colored shitts. Every variety waa
brought out,, when ho made his choice,
and requested that a parcel might be
made for him. This being done, "what
an idiot I am/' said he; "1 have not
seen how tho shirts look when on.
Would you oblige me, mademoiselle, by
putting en one over your dress V The
shop-woman having complied with his
request, "be so good," he continued, "as
to button the collar and wristbands, that,
I may get a thoroughly good idea of
the effect And now," he added, taking
up his parcel, "allow me to wish you a
very good morning I" and in an instant
he was outside the door and had disap
peared, the unhappy girl appansatly
stupified, not daring to follow him into
the street on account ofbersing iar
