IF YOU WANT A KISS, TAKE IT.

That.is pretty much like thus,

But there's danger in delaying
, , . And the sweetness may forsake it ;
So I tell you, bashful lover,
It you want a kiss, wh take it.. '
Never let another fellow
Steal a march on you ia this; ' -
Never let a laughing jnuidon - , .

There's a royal way to kissing,

Have a motto .thai is winning
If you waotjU kiss, why take'tt. ' "
Any fool may face a cann6n; . . . ,

But a man must win a woman, '
If he'd have her for his own;
Would you have the golden Apple, :
- You must find the tree and shake it)
If tho thing is worth the having,
And you want a kins, why tako it.
Who would burn upon a desert,
With 11 forest smiling by?
Who would cive his sunnyfsummer,
For a bleak and wintrekj?
Oh! 1 tell you thore is magic,
1 And you can not, can not broak it;
For tho sweetest' part of loving
Is to want a kiss, and take it.

EXCITING OLD STORY.
4I believe, Captain,' said the doc
tor, 'I never told you my adventure
with a woman at my boarding
house when I . was attending lec
tures.' ". "s
'No; let's have it,' .replied a short
flabby, lat man, about .Itfty, With
nervous temperament and a very
red face. '
'I boarded at a house where there
were no femajes, except the land
lady and an old colored cook.'.
The Captain, by way of request
ing him to go on, said Well?
'I often ielt the want of female
society to soften the severe labors
of deep study, dispSl the ennui to
which I wa& a subject '
'But as 1 feared that forming ac
quaintance with ladies would in
terfere with my studies, I avoided
'One evening after listening to a
long lecture on physical anatomy,
and after dissecting a large negro,
fatigued in body and mind, I went
to my lodgings '
'I went to the hall, took a large
lamp, and went directly to my
room, it being then after ono o'
'I placed tho light upon tho ta
ble and commenced undressing. I
had hardly got my coat off, when
ray attention was attracted to a
frocic and a quantity of petticoats
lying on a chair near the bed '
'And a pair of beautiful small
shoes and stocKings on the floor.
Of course I thought it strange and
was about to retire but then I
thought as it was my room, I Lad
at least a right to Know who was in
'Exactly so,' said the Captain;
So I tooK tho light and went
softly to the bed, and with a tremb
ling hand drew aside the curtain.
Heavens, what a sight! A young
girl I should say an angel of
about eighteen, was in there
As I gazed upon her, I thought
I had never witnessed anything
more beautiful. From underneath
a little night cap, rivalling the
snow in whiteness, fell astray ring

his legs in great excitement, 'how

to gaze upon! A Hebe! Pshaw,
words fail I Just then
'Well 1' shouted the captain, 'I
am in suspense !'

SOMETHING FOR THE ADMIRERS
OF BASE BALL.
Description of It by Brick Pomeroy.
Lopk at that . brace of hands,
onceSoft and pretty, now suffused
withithe Egyptian blushes. Then
lookjinto those optic and tell us
tales' of sympathy. And look at
thaOIount Tom on our right cheek
bone.; Base-ball ! That is the row.
It came about thus. Secondary
deployment is. too shirksome for
tho system. The doctor said we
neeJitd exercise. Doctor knows.
Ho;fld-TJS to join Base-ball. We
joined. Bought a book of instruc
tion and for five days studied it
wisely if not too well. Then we
bought a sugar-scoop cap, a red
belta green shirt, yellow trousers,
pumpkin-colored 6hoes, a paper
collar and purple neck-tic, and,
with it lot of other delegates,moved
gently to tho ground.
There were two nines. These
nines were antagonists. The ball
is a pretty littlo drop of softness,
the size of a goose-pgg, and five
degrees harder than a brick. The
two nines play against each other.
It is. a quiet game, much like chess,
only a little more chase than chess.
Thero was an umpire. His posi
tion is n hard one. He sits on a
box and yells "fowl." His duty is
severe; - :
I took the bat. It is a murder
ous plaything, descended from Po
cahontas to the head of John Smith.
The man in front of me was a pitch
er. He was a nice pitcher, but he
sent the balls hot. The man be
hind me was a catcher. He caught
it too! "
The umpire fsaid "play." It is
the most radical play i' know of,
this base-bali. Saving cord wood
is moonlight rambles beside base
ball. So the pitchers sent a ball
toward me. It looked pretty com
ing, so I let it come. Then ho sent
another. I hit it with the club,and
hove it gently upward. Then I
started to walk to tho first base.
The Jiall lit in the nitcher. or his
hands,and somebody said ha ottWgbt
a fly. Alas, poor fly I I walked
leisurely toward the base. Anoth
er man took the bat. I turned to
see how ho was making ' it, and a
mulo kicked me on the cheek. The
man said it was the ball. It felt
like mule, and I reposed on the
grass. The ball went on!
Pretty soon there were two more
flies, and three ot us flew out. Then
tho other nine canio in, and us nine
went out. This was better. Just
as I was standing on my dignity in
the leit field, a hot ball, as they
oalled it, came skyrocketing to"
ward me. My captain yelled, 'Take
I hastened gently forward to
where the ball was aiming to de
scend. I have a good eye to meas
ure distances, and saw at a glance
where my little rcrolite was to light.
I put up ray hands. How sweetly
the ball descended. Everybody
looked I felt something warm, in
my eye! "Muffin!" yelled ninety
fellers. "'Muffin' bed d! It's
a cannon-ball 1" For three days
I've had two pounds of. raw beef
on that eye, and yet it paineth !
Then I wanted to go home, but
my gentle captain said "nay." So
I nayed and stayed. Pretty soon
it was my strike. "Brick to bat!"
yelled the umpire. I went, but not
all 6erene as was my wont. The
pitcher sent in one hip high. I
missed it. He sent in another
neck high. It struck me in the
gullet. "Fowl," yelled the umpire.
He sent in the ball again. This
time I took it square and sent it
down the right field, through a par
lor windowa kerosene lamp, and
a rip up against the head of an in
fant who was quietly taking its
nap in his or its mother's arms.
Then I slung the bat and meander
ed forth to the first base. I heard
high word3 and looked. When I
slung the bat I had with it broken
the jaw Of the umpire and was fined
ten cents. '
The game went on. Hiked it.
It is so much tun to run from base
to base just in time to be put out,
or to chase a ball three-fourths of
a niile down hill while all the spec
tators yell "muffin!" "go it!" 'home
run!' 'go round again!' or 'go round
a dozen times!' Base-ball is a sweet
little game, When it came my
turn to bat again, 1 noticed every
body moved back about ten rods!
The new umpire retreated twelve
rods, i He' wa? timid. The pitoher
sent 'em in hot. Hot balls in time
of war are good. ' But I don't like
'em. too hot for fan: After a while
I got; a fair clip at it,- and yoa bet
it went, cutting the daisies down
the right field. A fat man and his
dog sat in tho shade of an oak en
joying the game. The ball broke
one leg of the dog and landed like
a runaway .e.ngine in the corporosi
r.y of tho fat man. He was taken
home to die.
Then I went on a double-quick
to the field, and tried to 6top a hot
ball. It came toward me from the
bat at tho rate of nine miles a min
ute. I put up my hands, the ball
went sweetly singing on its way
with all tho skin from my palms
More raw beef!
That was an eventful chap who
first invented base-ball. It's such
fun. I've played live games, and
this is the glowing :.esult:
Twenty-seven dollars paid out
One bunged eye, badly bunged.
One broken littlo finger.
One bump on the head.
Nineteen lame backs.
A sore jaw.
. One thumb dislocated.
Three sprained ankles,
Five swelled legs.
Ono dislocated shoulder, from
trying to throw a ball a thousand
Two hands raw from trying to
stop hot balls.
A lump tho size of a hornet's
nest on my left hip, well back.
A noso sweetly jammed, and five
uniforms spoiled from rolling in tho
dirt at tho bases.
I have played two weeks, and
don't think I liko tho game. There
is not a square inch on, in or under
me but aches. I sleep nights
dreaming of hot balls, 'llys,' fouls?
and descending sky-rockets. I nev
er worked go hard sinco Kuth stole
wheat, uud'never was so lame sinco
tho burning of Luther.
But I am proud of my proficien
cy in tho game. It's fino exercise
a little easier than being run
through a threshing-machine, and
not much either. It's a nice game
for a poet or orator 'twill make
one sore beyoad all accounts.
. . I've Jooked over the scorer's book
and find that in two weeks I've
broken seven bats, made one tally,
broken one umpire's jaw, brokon
ten windows in adjoining houses,
killed a baby, broke the leg of a
dog, and mortally injured the bread
basket of a spectator, knocked five
other players out of time by sling
ing my bat, and knocked the wat
erfall from a school-marm who was
standing twenty rods from the field,
a quiet looker-on.
I've used up fifteen bottles of ar
nica linimentjfive bottles of lotions,
half a raw beef, and am so full of
pain that it seems as if my bones
were but broken bats, and my legs
tho limbs of a dead horse-chestnut,
instead of the onco elegant trotters

A Strono Character. Strength
of character consists of two things:
power of will and power of self-re
strant. . It requires two things,
therefore, for its existence: strong
feelings, and strong command over
them. Now it is here we make a
great mistake ; we-mistake strong
feelings for strong character. A
man who bears all before him, be
fore whose frown domestics tremble
and whose bursts of fury make the
children of the household quake;
because he has his will obeyed,
and his own way in all thing9, we
call him a "strong man." . The
truth ir-, that that ho is the weak
man; it is lii-s passions that are
strong;. he mastered by them is
You must measuro tho strength,
of a man by the power of feelings
he subdues, not by the power of
those which subdue him. And
hence composure is very olten the
highest result of strength. Did wo
never 6eo a man receive a flagrant
insult, and only grow a little pale,
nnd thou reply quietly? That is a
man spiritually strong. Or did we
ever see a man in anguish stand as
if carved out of solid rock, master
ing himself? Or ono bearing a hope
less daily trial remain silent, and
never tell tho world what canker
ed his home-peace? That is
strength, lie, who, keenly sensi
tive, with manly powers of indig
nation in him, can be provoked,
and yet restrain himself, and for
givethese are the strongmen.
Sharp Shooting Between Coun
sel. At a county court, held not a
hundrodrciles from Lynchburg,Va.,
a distinguished member of the bar,
in.ftppealing to tho court for the
dis'chargo of his client, woundup
with the statement that if the court
sent him on 'for further trial "a
stain would bo left on his character
that could not bo washed off by all
the waters of blue ocean, and all the
soap that could be manufactured
from the ponderous carcass of the
Commonwealth's Attorney." To
this the ponderous attorney prompt
ly replied that "while he deemed it
foreign to the case at bar, he de

thought it advisable to boil his body
into soap, that they should look to

The anniversary of our National
Independence was celebrated in
good style at most of the European
capitals where we have diplomatic
representatives. At Paris the fete
which was to tako place at the Bois

There was, however, a festival at
the Grand Hotel. There was no
celebration at Rome.
In tho Senate and Corps Legis

denouncing the execution as a
