It is terriblo to think of tho agonies
of a woman of cultivation and refine?
ment when suffering under an attack of
that dread diseuse, kleptomania. Au
instance of heart-rending intensity took
placo the other day in Bouton. An ele?
gantly dressed woman was detected in \
tho very oct of plagiarizing a pnir of j
silk stockings. She started, turned pale
and burst into tears, suddenly conscious
of her guilt, and then in the most ago-1
nizod manner besought tho proprietor
to release her, and offered him a twenty
dollar note for the stockings. The gen?
tleman kindly reasoned with tho ofilicted
woman, and then, taking tho priae of
the stockings, returned her the change
from the twenty dollar note. The poor
woman then disappeared and was heard
of no more, although her bank note
was, as it was counterfeit.

Some Tory ac tito me ru hera ol the Pro?

been assailing many of the theories of
the Catholio Church, and eBpeoialiy that
which, relat?e to lim primacy of St.
Peter. They aaaeY ted that os a historical
faot St. Peter never put foot in Rome.
These statements were repeated to the
Pope, who,,.ip conservation, undertook,
their refutation. But his own friends
were not content with that limited refu?
tation, and they prevailed on the Holy
Father to authorize u public discussion
of the subject by olia m pious, chosen by
the respective churches. The prelimina?
ries being arranged, a meeting was held
at the Academy of tho Tiber, presided
over by two Catholics and two Protest?
ants. Three orators on each side ad?
dressed the audience, composed of about
300 Catholics and ?00 Protestants. Tho
greatest courtesy wits displayed by the
several ?peakerE, anti.when the contest
was over they shook bauds iu testimony
of their respect for ' each other. The I
traditional doctrine is that St. Peter I
came to Romo in the year 42, under
Claudio?, und wrns martyred in CG, under]
The Protestants ussertcd that this
could Dot be truo; that according to tho
Aots of tho Apostles, St. Peter wus at

Papias, the first reporter of. the false]
tradition of St. Peter's, sojourn ut Rome,
was a writer unworthy of credit. The'
Catholics replied, relying mainly upou
aertain Germau roHeurchos, not yet in
general circulation. .
Tho impression left by tho discussion
was that ul though St. Petnr'a residence
at Rome was not aa long as tradition
ussertH, there is nothing improbable iu
it, aud there ure reasons to believe it |
was a reality. Tho speeches were steno?

Center, in Wisconsin, took a lady fruin
Porter, ulao near-sighted, to church ou
a recent Sunday eveuiug. He drove a
blind horee. This unsightly combina?
tion wan disastrous. The eyeless equine
couldn't keep the road, sud the close
visioned couplo knew not whither to
guide tho beast. After numerous mis
aps, they reached the scene of worship,
with one of the tires missing, and the
buggy-box badly bruised, and drove
triumphantly into the yard which sur
I rounded the church. But, unfortu
t o at ely, a clothes-line was stretched ]
. across the lot, aud under this the mis?
guided brute took his course. There
was u sudden emptying of the buggy, in
a back summersaultio manner, which
would have dune credit to a first class
oirous tumbler, and Center and Porter I
were heaped up promiscuously in tho
mud beneath the vehicle. They didn't
go into the chu rob, but returned home, as
solemn as a funeral procession, with the
Porter lady in tho boggy and the Center
delegate leading the blind horse. It was
a gloomy, cheerless trip, and the school?
teacher vowed, as he trudged along with
the bridle-rein over his shoulder, that ho
would never be cuught out again with?

in th? oase of the infatuated young peo?

conversation until ah approaching train
struck thom, and brought their court?
ship to an abrupt close. It would
bardly be just to say that in death they
were not divided, for in point of fact,
they were both very much divided, in?

evidently, that lovers, like deaf and
