The handsomest man I have ovor seen
was a boatman on tho wost of Skyo, tho
calm and serious dignity of whoso faco
seomod moro suggostlve of Loonardo dl
Vinci than of herring fishing; and tbo
handsomest woman I havo over seen was
a young marriod lady, who, somo years
ago, happened to be traveling in the Clans
mau, and whoso gontly modulated English
Indicated an Inverness origin. When a
Highland girl, oven of tho peasant class,
Is pretty (and tho phenomenon is
not of a very raro occurroncol, the
prottlnoss is of a refined and intellectual
typo; tho forehoad high, the eyes clear,
full and contomplativo, tho mouth fine,
and tho expression of the face gentle and
vet firm. Wordsworth nover forgot tho
beauty of tbo Highland girl ho saw at
Inversnald, Indeed, It Is said ho had to
rocur to that fount when ho wished to
pay a poetical compliment to his wile.
For tbo rest, tho way in which an edu
cated Highland young lady speaks En
glish is ono of tbo most delightful things
in tho world, though no doubt sho would
bo vory much surprised, and oven indig
nant, if sho was told that sho had any
accout at all.

A curious carriage caso has Just been
decided In New York. Tho courts holds
It a defense against a bill that plaintiffs
paid a servant of defendants a small per.
centauo every timo au item was added.
Tho bill was brought by llrewster &
Co, against Itufut Hatch, nnd tho servant
"sugared" was Itufus Match's coacbroau,
who took bis laudaulot thero for repairs.
Drowator & Co. pleadod that it was a uni
versal custom. That such Is tho custom,
especially in Now York, cannot bo
doubted, but Its existence is duo entirely
to tho fact that tho people who foot tho
bills aro too lazy to llud out what tbey
pay for.

1-G4 of an inch thick and of an oval
shapo, its greatest dlametor bolng a
quarter of an lnob. It could not bo
found at tho timo of tho accident, and
was supposed to havo boon lost. Throo
weeks ago Mr. Simpson's oyo began to
glvo him Intense pain and became greatly
swollen. For rolief ho applied to it a
bread poultice, which was frequontly
renewed. When ho removed tho poul
tlco yesterday ho was astonished to find
clinging to it tho piece of gold which had
cut his oyo moro than a.quartor of a cen
tury ago. No ono had supposed that tho
missing gold had embedded itself in tbo
oye, and tho discovery was as great a
surnrlso to tho patient as to his friends.
Tho sharp edge of tho gold had cat Its
way downward and catno through tbo
