Cupid on Horseback.
Death plays some fantastic tricks
at times, but, compared with tho
other universal conqueror, Love, ho
is tamed indeed. On Thursday
afternoon, in the crowded marts of
this city, under tho clear sun-light,
Cupid vaulted into the saddle of tho
Pale Horse, gave him tho rein, and
.with the . spirit of the wind flew to
Less than a year ago, there came
from Virginia to reside in St. Josejjh,
a highly respectablo widow, whom
the misfortunes of war hud compelled
to emigrate. With her came her two
daughters, one twelve and tho other
nearly eighteen years of age. Annie,
the eldest, was blessed with more
than the usual amount of beauty and
intelligence, and had received an
education suitable to tho affluence
and social standing of her parents
ere war made its inroads. Since ;
April last, the widow has resided on
Third street, and her pleasant family 1
cirole has often been enlarged and
enlivened by the presence of Lewis
Dix, a young man of twenty-four
who married her niece, with whom,
and the three chubby littie ones that
have blessed their uion, he has been
residing, some fifty miles from St.
Joseph. As Dix had formerly lived
in Virginia, and hud always boon on
terms of intimacy with the family,
his visits were looked forward to
with pleasure by all, and not a sus?
picion ever crossed tho mind of the
mother that ho was other than he
seemed-a true friend.
Thus matters stood at the begin?
ning of tho present week, when Dix
arrived iu tho city in a wagon, drawn
by a span of gray horses, ostensibly
for the purpose of purchasing somo
articles for farm use. Ho called at
the widow's as usual, and as usual
was hospitably entertained. On
Thursday Annie carried to her
washer-woman a number of articles,
and about 4 o'clock iu tho afternoon
of the same day, left home with the
excuse that she was going after thom.
5, 6 nnd 7 o'clock came, but not so
Annie. Then it was that the horrible
suspicion flashed upon tho mother
that her daughter had been made a
victim to the wiles of the man whom
they all had esteemed. Inquiry soon
confirmed her worst fears, lt was
ascertained that Dix had procurod
saddles, deserted his wagon, and,
mounting Annie on one horse and
taking the other himself, had hur?
riedly left the city by the Savannah
road, in company with his victim.
Up to present writing nothing has
been heard of tho fugitives.
Tho mother is almost distracted
over this terrible affair, yet she firmly
declares that the wayward daughter
shall never again cross her threshold.
The poor child's infatuation will be
of Bhort duration. She will soon
learn by sad experience that ho who
has been falso to one woman is false
to all. If Annie docs not knock for
admittance under the parental roof in
less than a month, and Dix does not
humbly trudge back to the city and
hitch to his deserted wagon before
the first snow, notwithstanding the
faot that he had $1,200 in his pocket,
just received from his father in Vir?
ginia, then we aro no prophet, nor
the son of a prophet.

lions,_On Going to Church*
I know n good deni about church,
for I go there every Sunday. It is
good to go to church. Good things
uro often very stupid. Tommy
Slabsides is a good boy, nud ho likes
to rend Sunday-school books, and
don't know how to BU im, or to row,
and is afraid of a game of base ball,
and never played hooky in his life.
I am a good boy sometimes; but I
wish it was good to be bad. Thou I
could go birds-nesting, and sit up
lato at night, and not hear sermons.
Sermons are mostly preached iu
church. Yet pa sometimes gives mo
a sermon at home, it is always after I
have been bad. So I suppose people
who go to church are always very
bad, aud go there to get punished.
It's always very hot in church. I
never get so fidgety anywhere else as
I do at church. I'm never fidgety
when I go ont playing, or when I go
to the circus. But Aunt Jorusha says if
I was a real good boy, it wouldu't be
,?o. Sometimes I fall asleep in church.
I used to think this was very bad,
but last Snuday I saw both pa and
ma and Mr. Lougfnce, who passes
round the plate, all fast asleep, too.
Mr. Longfaco snored the loudest.
I sometimes think church would be
a good placo to play hide-and-go
seek in. You can get away under
the pews so nico, and nobody'd ever
think of looking iu the pulpit.
I liko to blow the bellows for the
man who plays tho organ. Charley
Puffer does so now, und gets heap of
money for it-at least half a dollar a
Sunday. Ho lets mo blow some?
times. Don't he have tho chi ney
agates, though! It's hard work to
blow the organ, too, but it's easier
than keeping awake during the ser?
There was once a boy who was
locked up all night in church with
tho ghosts and ghostesses. He went
to school with me. Ho said he'd had
enough of church to last him all his
life. Sometimes I think I've had
enough too, though I never saw a
ghostess. When 1 get to bo good.
Aunt Jorusha says, I'll love to hear
sermons three times a Sunday, lo
say nothing of weekly meetings.
Sometimes it don't seem to me as if
[ ever could be good. I ain't yet;
