Only a woman?waiting alone,
Icily cold, on nn ice-cold throne,
What do they care for her?
Mumbling a prayer for her,
Giving not bread but a stone:
Under oTd laces their haughty, ncarpi beat,
Mocking the woes of their kin in the street.
Only a woman ! in the old days
Hope carolled to her the happiest lays; '
Somebody missed her,
Somebody kissed her,
Somebody crowned her with praise;
Somebody faced up the battles of life .
Strong for her sake who was mother or wjfo.
Somebody lies with a tress of her hair
Light on his heart where the death shadows
arc;
Somebody waits for her,
Opening tho gates for her,
Giving delight for despair.
Only a woman?Nevermore poor?
Dead in the snow at the bronze church

Those Circus Dills.
An old lady who had been out shop
ping procured a few circus bills, and
on her return home she had one in
her hand as she came up the steps,
aud she didn't say a word until after
she had wiped off her spectacles,
placed them on her nose, unfolded
the bill and read a few of the head
lines.
She was old-fashioned in look.
There were strings to her bonnet,she
wore no bustle* her gray hair was
combed down smoothl^jajJit^therc.
alpaca dress.
Young man, don't you know th?'
circuses area wful liars and 1K~*nt>Ags ?
she finally inquired
The man mCi ^xc table leaned ou the
hook of his chair and refused to ex
press his opinion.
Well, I know it, she continued in a
positive tone, and I believe they get
wuss everyday. Now,see hero listen
to this;
A5' goorgeous panorama of amnzing
wonders?a gigantic combination of
astonishing acrobatic talent.
That's all right on the poster, but
have they got (hem ? I'd like to see
one of them animals.
You're laboring under a mistake,
madam, it means a grand display-of
natural curiosities, and informs the
public tli at the1 proprietor has secured*
many first-class acrobats?the chaps
who . stand on their heads, turn heels
over head, and cut ijp'eo many mon
key shines.
jit', does, eh? she musecL Well, do
you suppose it takes asmatt person to
keel over ?
Well, one has to have a good deal
af training^
. They do, eh ? she remarked, as she
put her' umbrella iu the corner and
spit in her hands; I'll show you tbat
you are deceived ! I'm an old woman,
but if I cannot?I
Madam, hold on?don't do it lex?
claimed the man behind the tablo,
fearing that the old' woman would
turn over. i '
. I can flop right over there aud
never shake my bonnet 1 she said as
she rose up.
I know you can, madam, but don't.
I am here alone, and I?I don't want
you to. I'd rather you wouldn't. If
you are determined on it, I shall leave
the room.
Well, you know I can do it, and
that's enough. You may he right
about what that means, but sec here
?hear this :?
Tho highways ablazo with resplend
ent chariots?tho grandest pagoant

I've been to lots of circus s iu my
tiine, young man, fftid never saw a
pageant yet. If they had one, tho
door of hiBcago wasn't open.
You are also in error there. Tho
bill refers to the fact that the great
number of wagons, chariots, etc., make
a sight worth seeing as they pass along
the streets.

could 'not say so then. Now see titfii^j

enough, and so they put hini down td.

jumps off a rope, turns over twice, and)
come down all right.
He is, eh ? Well, if he's got an idea
that he's tho smartest man

try to turn over twice, bu
right here and now, or break my
neck! Take those things off'n that

Stay, madam?don't. I wouldn't
have you to try it for $50.
Just once!
For heaven's sake, madam, get

I don't want your money and I
won't try it if you're so scared; but I
don't want no circus going around

She sat down, the young man wiped
the sweat off his brow, and presently
she remarked : , .
AuiJ here's another thing right
here:
A sparkling asterisk flashing across
the field of the cloth of gold. M?ns.

blow about? Make up faces?sec
here.
And she shut her eyes, run out her
tongue, and looked like the bottom of |
a brass kettle which had been kicked
in by a mule.
They are humbugs, sir, she said, as
she drew her tongue in, and d'ya
s'pose I'd pay fifty cents to go to one
of them.
They arc qaite entertaining ns a
general thing.
They are, eh 1 Entertaining, eh
Well, ,if I can't do more entertaining
in five minutes than a circus cau in
all day I'll leave my bonnet up here!
Here, hold on to this chair I(
Madam, I earnestly hope that you
are not going to perform any tricks.
I ain't, eh ! You just hold on to tho
legs of this chair.
I can't, madam?I wouldn't doit
for all the diamond rings in-Syracuse
Go away, madam do go home!, I'm
in on awful hurry j
Weih I won't then, but when I say
circuses are humbugs, I can prove it.
I don't keer two cents for their, big
words, their panoplies, pageants,
asterisks, giraffes, aryals, gtorgeouees

She took off her spectacles, picked
up her uuibrellar, and left.
Some ladies, iu Marion, S. Gi,
formed themselves into a society the
other day, known a3 the '-Sisters of
Economy." Each member took an
oath on a copy of Webster's unabridg
ed dictionary, that she would never
henceforward forever wear apparel
that cost over 28 cents per yard. The
other day a rich bachelor came up
from Charleston, on the morning train,
aud that evening the president and
eight of the sisters were seen on the
Streets, decked cut in summer robes'
that cost their papas three .dollars and
a half per yard.
"A Missouri judge has decided that
a mother has no legal right to thnuh
her daughter after the girl has passed
her eighteenth birthday," Thatjudgo
is quite right. When a girl reaches
I her eighteenth year ihc legal right to
thrash her becomes dormant, and re
mains so until she marries, when it
revivos and roverts to her husband.

ing of Girls.]]
v It Was Sam.
Tho other day a tall, thin w( man
from over the river hunted around
Vicksburg until sho found Corouer
Blessiug, whose, retiring disposition
and, prompt attention to business are
:certain to make him famour all over
the .state within the coming year, and
when sho was certain of her man ahe
inquired:
"Business ain't driving now, is it?"
"Well nothing to brag of, I get a
floater or a nigger now and then, but
iL isn't anything like old times."
She heaved a sigh and continued:
"Sara is missing."
"Sam, Sam," he repeated.
"Yes, my old man, It's nigh on to
twelve weeks since he started '-o cross
>the river about six miles above here,
land I'm getting anxious. I thought
II'd drop down and see if you remem
bered of having sot on such a man."
"Aoout twelve weeks ago?less see?
[Li believe I did pull in a floater some
ten or eleven weeks since."
: "Was he a tall man ?"
- *'Yes, I think he was."
' "Have a long nose and brick-color

,\ "Yes?I remember now."
> "Cow hide shoes and a yaller coat
on?"
Ijj "Yes?I got that very man."
I i "He riz to the surface and was pull
f d in here, sot on according to law,
and duly buried."
; "He .was; madam. And do you be
lieve that the body was that of vour
pissing husband ?"

"Was he put down to stay ?"
"He was well buried, madam."
"Well, its 'bout as well, to let him
stay there. He's probably fell away
so that I wouldn't know him, and I
don't feel like having my narves
strung up."
"Well, I'm very sorry for you, mad- 1
am. If I could have identified the
body, I would have sent you word
right away.1'
"It's all right. I've felt it in my
bones for moro'u two months that 1
wag a widder, and th shock don't
stagger me like it would at first. I'm;
sorry, for Sam was kind."
"But he ought a knowed better,
when he couldn't swim. I told him
and told him and told him, and that
day I told him again, aud he hollered
back, "shut-up 1''
"lie did f?
"Yes, he did, and n^xv he's under
tho silo and 1'ni here I I'm 'blcoged,
Mr.-; I know where he is now,
and when I wake up in the night I
shan't worry so much. Is thorc any
thing to pay ?"
"No?nothing.''
"Well, I'll go.home feeling bettor.
It's kinder hard to have the old man
go under that way, but I 'spojc the
Lord knovs best. The Bible says we
oonieth up to bocut down, and I sup
pose that means drowning as well as
shoo ting.''
And she felt to seo if her spectacle
caso was all wife, and started lor home.
"Got any medicine," asked a boy,
entering a drug store the other day.
"Yes, lots of it. What do you want?"
inquired the clerk. "Ob, it don't
makoany difference, so that it's some
thing lively. Dad is fearful bad."
"What ails him?" asked the clerk.
''Dnpno," Baid the boy; "but he's run
down orful. He just sits around the
stove all day and mopes; ho hasn't
walloped mother sinco Christmas. I
gues3 he's going to die!"

A few days since n.seody person ap

The Auckland tlerald furnishes
some interesting information respec^'
ing the manner in which pnn^hmont
is meted out to convicts in New Zea
land. A visitor to the prison des
cribes tho executioner as a powerful
fellow, stripped to his shirt, which was
tolled up on his arms'and displayed an
extraordinary mass of sinew and
strenth. Bcsido him was a box in
which were ' ranged the instruments
of punishment?the "cnt-o'-nine-tnils."
The first of the victims to suffer pun
ishment was a middle-aged, hard-fea
tured fellow, who on being led through
an iron gate, was ordered by the exe
cutioner to strip. Di vesting himself of
his clothes he was led to the triangles
and the straps passed round his wrists,
ankles 'aud waist; it was impossible to
move. The executioner took up one of
the heaviest "cats," passed hia fingers
through the niue tails of the whip and
then brought it ?down upon the cul
prit's back. There was a shriek of
agony, and in livid blue lines iho flesh
stood out upon the poor wretch's
shoulders. "One 1" cried the warden,
and again the cat swung high up in
the air to descend a second time. The
dfeep blue lines turned red,"the blood
oozed through a dozen different cuts
and the skin began to pell in strips
along his back. Shriek after shriek
rent the air. The sight was sickening.
As each blow was dealt the prisoner
writhed in agony, and when the lash
fell for the last time and the straps
wore loosened that held htm he turn
ed away, faint, weak, scarcely rccog
uizable as a human being, marked
and disgraced for life. Two otner
prisoners were then led out and the

'?Your wife is a good washerwoman,
isn't she?" said the young bachelor to
the polite and obsequious man.
"Yaas, sir, ehe commonly always
givesati'faction," replied the husband
of the laundress. - ??i
"Well," resumed tho young bache
lor in his blandest and most insinuat
ing manner, "You can tell your wife
that I esteem her very highly as one
possessing ninny womanly and Christ
inn virtues, a domestic gem and house
hold ornament, a social luminary and
moi nl beacon, nn exemplary Christian,
a gentle loving wife, a washerwoman
among ten thousaud, aud altogether
lovely, but there's oiw objection."
"What's dat, sar?" inquired the
smiling African, who had been show
ing two rows of spotless ivory and a
cavernous opening of tho bead, whilo
his wife was being bo extravagantly
eulogized. k i >
"What's dat, boss?*'
"She puts a1! the stnrch in my soclw,
and uono in my shiru; she washes or
irons all the buttons off and forgets to
replace them; exchanges hiy clothes
for those of some other patron, aud if
you'll look at this (holding up a gar
ment,) you'll sec how inconvenient it
would bo to wear either pantaloons,
curls or collars with such a shirt as
she sometimes jends me. It may be
that sho cuts off the arms and collar
to make tho tail longer, but I can't
I sco what the deuce sho should want to
i ruflle the edges for."
