KSThe late storm in Harris County, Ca.,
struck a building in which were assem?
bled a large number of ladies and gen?
tlemen who had met for the purpose of
spending the evening in dancing. The
awful, appalling roar of the tornado fell
upon the ears of the merry dancers, fear
took possession of their souls, and amidst
the mingled and!terrific sounds of the
tempest went tip many a wailing cry to
the Father of Mercies, and earnest vows
were uttered that if escape from death
were vouchsafed, no more tripping of
the light fantastic toe would ever be in?
dulged by-any of- thatfparty.- We un?
derstand none -were-seriously injured.
'Tis said, strange to relate, that on the
approach of the storm, every man pre?
sent, save two, took flight and sought
safety in a neighboring gully, leaving
the ladies without partners, one of those
who remained ' being a married man.
We think ?h*e brav? bachelor who stood
by the frightened girls, should be the
most favored man in all that region.
We are glad to know that the party in
the gully were not hurt by the storm.
An American clergyman exclaimed to
his hearers: "Eternity! Why you don't
know the meaning of the word, nor I
cither, hardly. It is forever and ever,
and five or six everlasting a-top of that.
You might place a row of figures from
here to sunset, and oypher them all up,
and it wouldn't begin to tell bow many
ages long eternity is. Why, my friends,
after millions and millions of years had
rolled away in eternity, it would be
100,000 vears to breakfast time."
