Unappreciated Shakespeare.
A few days ago young Gurloy, whose
father lives on Croghau street, organ i-,
zed a theatrical company and purchas

The company consisted of three boys
and a hostler, and Mr, Gurley's hired
girl was to bo the 'Ghost' if the truope

Young <3 urlcy suddenly bloomed out
as a professional, and when his moth

replied :

'Yon trot out after that wood or I'll

claimed.

continued Gurley.
Tho man drove him into the house,

after potatoes.

as he took up tho basket, 'but my good

'Thy plcbian miud is dull of com pre

'Don't try to get off any of your non
scusc on me, or I'll crack your empty
pate iu a minute,' roared the grocer,
and 'Hamlet' had to come down from
his high horse and ask for a peck uf
potatoes.
'What made you so long, asked his
mother as he returned.
'Thy grave shall be dug in the cy
press glade"!' he haughtily answered.
Whon his father came home at noon
Mrs. Gurley told him that she believed
the boy was going crazy and related
what had occurred
'I see what ails him,' mused the fath
er; 'this explains why he hangs around
Johnson's burn 60 much.'
At the dinner table young Gurley
spoke of his father as tho 'illustrious
i ourt,' aud whon his mother asked hiui
if be would have some butter gravy ho
answered :
'The appetite of a warrior cannot bo
satisiicd wilh such nonscuce.'
When tho meal was ovor his father
wont out to his favorite sliado treo, cut
a sprout, and tho boy was askedjjto step
into the woodshed and seo if the pen
stock wns frozen up. He found the
old man there and he said.
'Why, most noblo, lord I supposed
thee far away.'
'I'm not so far away but what I'm
going to make you skip,' growled the
father. 'I'll show you how to fool
around with ten cent tragedies ! Gome
up here !'
For about ten minutes tho woodshed
was full of dancing foot, flying arms
and moving bodies, and then tho old
man took-a rest and inquired.
'Trioic, your royal highness, dosi

'Oh I no, dad?not a darned bit!'

the father started for down town he

American Girls.
A French traveler, who has recently

Atlantic, furnishes the Revue des Deux
Monties quito a lengthy sketch of life
aud manners in America. Without

tho manners aud custoiucs of the
average American girl. We imagine,
however, that the picture drawu will be
readily recognized. The writer says :
The young American girls only Ii vo

There they get all sorts of goods spread
out before them; they ask the price of

salesman dots not show the least sign of
discontent. There is a peculiar word
for that singular custom. It is 'shop

A Virginia City (Nov.) paper has
this little 'paragraph : 'Little Ed'lio
Nye, who was run over by a flat ear last
evening, auu was ho badly injured tint
ho died next'morning, was a rare bright
child, and 'one of tho best children in
tho city. Just before he died he sang
?The Beautiful River,'with a voice as
sweet as though ho had caught the tones
from the softer shore, ou the brink of
which his .spirit was thou trembling.
After tho sung he repeated a little
prayer wliiqh bis mother had taught
him. 'The child all bis life had a lisp,
but his last prayer fell from his tongue
without a halt or quaver, but ratlici
steady and clear, and yet with a far utl'
tone, as though another's voice of
infinite sweotuoss had seized upon his
lips iu the supreme moment, to leave an
echo iu his uuguished mother's cars
which should hist as long as life. Short
ly after the little prayer, tho sunny eyes
closed and little Kddie was gone. On
Sunday his funeral attracted the whole
city, and there was not a dry eye
around the dear child's bier.'
