when the Exhibition opened, and a num
bcr ol British bur maids were taken over
to attend it. The proprietors used every
means to guard tnem from the tetnnta
lions of the gay city, not allowing them
to go out in tne evening, and driving
them in carriages to their work every
morning, and back to their boarding'
house every evening. But the young
English maidens were not content to be
surrounaed with gayety without enjoy'

trunks and went coma, aud the pn-prta
tors were glad to keep the rest by letting
them do as they pleased, and spend their

Mr. Trevelyao, who lives on Court
street, has had trouble already with bis
garden hose. Since tbe . introduction of
lhe Dolly water system, it has been tbe
delight of Mr. Trevelyau to torn himself
into a pipeman at sunset, and with his
garden hose sprinkle the thirsty street
with the clear, cool waters of the mighty
Mississippi. Miss Norah Donavan, a
young ludy who is connected with the
culinary department of Mr. Trevelyan's

mitories and general overseer of carpets.

permit, this process of cooling down the
streets at even tide, and she had been
heard to wish tbat this duty might be en

When Miss Donavan took the nozzle
from tbe bands of her master, it was
nointed almost directlv at the middle of
the street, and Miss Donavan consnien-.
lously retained it in this position, while
er whole frame was convulsed with de-
ght. Presently there came dashing
own the street, in a light open phaeton
two happy young people. In vain the
male young person shouted, "Hi, there,
say, turn ber off! and in vain the
emale young person shrieked and es
sayed to hide behind a parasol no larger
than a water lily. Miss Donavan otily
stared at them and wondered if perad
venture they might be crazy, and when
hey passed through the torrent they

very silent, and very damp, not to say
in p. lhen tbe gentleman who lives
next door came out and railed to her as
e approached, intending to instruct ber
how to shut off the deluging stream or
urn it asme when any one approached.
But Miss Donavan, hearing him call her
ame, said Sorrf and turned about
nd faced him with the nozzle doing its
level best, wide open and a (ire pressure
on. He turned with the first shot and
fled for his own door, the cooling stream
ollowing bim every inch of bis way, like
an angel of mercy in disgnise. But by
the time he reached his own door, he was
so thoronghly drenched that his sus
penders mildewed. Then a Fourth Hill
street car came rattling down, an open,
summer car, just crowded with people
coming in from a' picnic at Bnnnyside,
aud when they beard the driver shout.
and then dodge, and then swear, they
saw their fate and Miss Donavai, and
just howled and wailed and screamed,
and tried to get behind each other, and
rent under the teats, and some of tbem
even jumped the car, and all of them, by
tbeir trantic gestures, wild shrieks, and
singular behavior, impressed Miss Dona
van with the idea that they were dread
fully drunk. Tbe street car passed on,
and when it was beyond tbe line of Mr.
Trevelyan's garden stream, the dryest
man in that car could bave put ont a
conllagration by simply leaning back
against tbe house that was burning, and
before the car reached the next corner
there were four well-defined suits for
damages fixed up against Mr. Trevelyao.
By this time, Mis Donavan was pretty
thoroughly convinced that the manipu-
alien of a garden bose required tbat
broad judgment and liberal education.
and shrewd insight into mea and mo
tives that belong only to tbe aristocratic
classes, and she determined to resign
her position tortbwitb. she went into
the hall, carryiug the nozzle with her,
aud spreading desolation and dismay
wherever she went. Whisll -she
shouted, as the torrent drenched the hat-
rack " Murtherl" she howled; when it
knocked the globe rff the hall lamp
' Misther Trevelyao!" she shrieked,

We HastUlve np the Bird.
George W. Peck, in his Fourth of Jnlv
oration at LaCrosse, said: It may bav'
been noticed that thus far I have made
no allusion to the American eagle, tha
national trade mark, patent applied for,
but it is not that I do not appreciate tho
position that species of poultv ocenniea
on these occasions. The poet alludine
te the eagle, says:
Bird of the broad smd fleeting wing,
Ihy home is high in heaven.
This is too true. Ha is a hio-h nl.l
bird, and the committee that selected the
eagle as a national emblem should have
been arrested for disorderly conduct. O
great bird! You live on mice. You
mar aloft on pinions airy, until you see
a poor little mouse with one leg broke,
and then yon swoop down like a ward,
constable and run him in. You are n.
nice old bird for a trade-mark, for a na
tion of heroes, yon old coward. You
sit on a rock and watch a pleasant wo.
man hanging out clothes, and wlion .ha
goes in the house to turn the clothes
wringer you, great bird, emblem of free
dom, you representative of tbe land of
the free and the home of the brave, you
swoop down on tke plantation and crush
yonr talons in the quivering flesh of her
little baby, take him to your home high
in neaven, and pick his innocent little
eyes out. The bird that should have
been selected as the emblem of our
country, the bird of patience, forbear
ance, perseverance and the bird ttf terror
wnen aroused, is the mule. There is no
bird that combines more virtue to the
tqnare foot than tBe mule. With the
male emblazoned on our banners, wa
should be a terror to the foe. We are a
nation of uncomplaining bard-workers.
We mean te do tha fair tbinir hv wr'.
body. We plod along doing as we would
be done by. Sa does the mule. We as
a nation are slow to aneer. Rn is th
mule. As a nation we oocasionallv stifle
our ears forward and fan the (lies off our
forehead. 8o does the mule. We allow
parties to get on and ride as long as they
behave themselves. So does the mulo.
But when any nation sticks spurs into
our flnnks and tickles our heels with n,
straw we come down stiff legged in trout,
our ears look beautiful beyond, our voice
is cut loose, and is still for war, and our
subsequent end plays the snare drum on
anything that gets in reach ol us, and
strikes terror to tbe hearts, of all tyrants.
So does tbe mule.
