One of the Pack.
I see how it is: I'm one of the pack
A paltrv paying card: nothing more.
You shuim.: and deal, then tak' me back,
Or toss me to lie where I was before.
There are r'yal heads at your mimic court.
But they fare no better; they're in the same
fix:
For you vary the usual order of sport:
You take what you please while you play
your tricks.
No doubt it serves well as a source of fun t
To match your lovers, this one against that:
Though perhaps. when the evening's amuse
ment is done c
And the pack put aside, we seem rather flat.
But suppose that by chance in the dead of the
night. V
When yo, reaun.with disdain of our being
We shouldb yaj~buirepose, rising up in our
might.
Au # tp d uopfface that our feelings
axe hUr?
c
For. watever you fancy we each have a soul, a
And the rules that apply here are oddly so
planned
That while we seem bent to your finger's e
control, . f
And are played withyet we two are takingI
a hand.
Don't you see that a sequence of hearts you
may break.!
While attempting one mean little trump
spot to save.
Or succumb to an equally luokiess mistake V
And lt a king go lor the sake of a knave?
Does Tom's Diamond take you, or Is it my t
heart?
Thadeuoe, after all, will perhaps end the
race:
Then, again, gou mair yilfd to young Alger- c
non Smarte -
Or the oe-ayed old banker's Cylopean aee.
ThegaTis to be Lottery-so you said- d
Or Matrimony? No: both. 1 declare! y
Why, the next thing I kuow you'll take to Old
Maid,
And leave me to sorrow and Solitaire. s
Cress purposes still: This never will do.
You've begun Vingt-et-un; I'm at Thirty
one- -4 d
Just teniyearpap Ah, 'wish I knew
Some smoother way to make matters run!
You change the game like a pantomime;
And now It's Euchre, I really believe, h
For you're trying to cheat me half of the
time.
With a"little joker"-a laugh in your sleeve. n
Let us end this'nonsense! What do you say?
Leave me out, and go on with the rest, t
Or throw the whole heap of cards away,
And stake your all on a man as the best.
You can't manage love according to Hoyle. 9
And your effort to do so you surely would &
re. t
Besides. what's the use "of such Intricate
toil?- .
You; shall w:I.all th6 games if I only win e
you!
-Geo. Parson Lathrop in Editor's Drawer.

A1E WAS ANARTIST.
He had a studio on Chestnut street
before his arrival it er known as an a
attic. It had that trade mark peculiar
to an artist's den, namely, dust and
disorder. But this morning there was
a suspicion of neatness in the arrange
ment' of many unfinished canvases;
some of the dust and dirt had been re
moved. though a few spider-webs lurk- t
ed in the corners. However, taking
all into consideration, it was not so bad e
a place as it might be.
So thought its sole, lord and master,
by name David MarVin, as 'he sat be
f6re his easel, putting in a little darker
backgroundto the lovely face he was
painting. Perhaps you might not call
it lovely, but I assure you that the art
ist thought those deep brown eyes, the
auburn hair, and the firm red lips
something extraordinary.

Miss Lothor'p-had withdrawn into a
corner by the windowv at the panting I
dame's unceremonious arriva:, and was I
now eyeing her gaudy attire withI bad
ly concealed merriment cu her face.

"Well, upon my word, Aunt Eliza, e:
you've taken mc by storm. I did not Ii

at last gaspetd David. i
"Oh. no! I was sarten sure of thatt. el

Aunt Eliza.lIooking-vindictively at .\iss a

a stage whisper'.h
"I beg your pardJon, Auut Ehiza," s
said David, recove~iug his lost eniergy e:
and pulling himself up with a jerk. rt
"Miss Lotnorp, allow me to intr'oduce a

the old lady, with some pride. "ft's a

'Indeed!" Mliss Lothorn murmured, Ie:
endeavoring to appear interested, while b
Mr. Mnrvin inwardiy cursed his fate. Ic:
"I hope that feller hasn't been telling a
ye yarns about his an--a., on, whatev,- n

"Yes; you will please excuse me, but
remember that I have a pressing en
agement that I cannot slight. Good
ye.
"I am sorry, Miss Lothorp," said
)avid, in a husky voice, surprise and
idignation making his naturally stupid
angue dumb. "Good morning. Oh,
unt! What have you done?" he ex
laimed, as he closed the door afterthe
oung lady. "I cn hardly say I thank
ou for airing those spicy anecdotes of
Iy juvenile days," he coutinued, bit
erly, as he busied himself before his
asel. "What will she thin ?" was
ie next, thought. "And she'll never
ome back!" he unluckily nuttered
loud. Alas, poor Dave!
"You blamed foo!, Dave Marvin!"
xclaimed Aunt Eliza, grasping the
rule of her umbrella. "You b-amed
yol!"
"Aunt!"
"Y'are. I s'pose ye'll be bringing
iat proud hussy home ter lledington

"Once for all, aunt-"
One-half hour afterwar.l Aunt Eliza
ame out into the broad daylight,mop
ina her moist brows, and frowning
arlly at the fifth4 floor window, from
rhence her oainter nephew was gaz
ig down stupidly on the crowded
treet.
Another morning two weeks later,
avid was at his easel, working on the
eep brown eyes, with tlie- heavily
:inged lashes. Was it-uo-Lut it
ras the original again. sitting before
im.
"Yes I realiy thought that you would
ever co again. You were so terri
ly put out, you know," he was saying
ie hot blood mounting to his brow.
"Why, what made you think that? I
as very much amused by the old lady;
e is very communicative, don't you
aink?" she asked with a queer gleam
i her eyes that the poor fellow dread
I so much.
"Ah, yes-that is-" .he stammer
3, then quitted his work, and brush
nd palette were thrown down.
"Miss Lothorp!"
"Mr. Marvin!'
He stopped and looked doubtingly
round him.
"Miss Lothorp. don't you-I man
'ould you mind hearing more about
iat little fellow who carried his sisters
-the way she said?"
No answer; the eyes were hidden by
ie long lashes, and a faint, shell-like
nt crept over her face.
"You will not say that you have an
gagement?" he asked, thinking he
d the upper hand, and consequently
eling brave.
"O , will you not believe me? It
as really the truth. Why should I
Lake an excuse when I like-"
A full stop.
"What? Whom?"
"What were you going to say, Mr.
arvin?" she inquired, ignoring his
estion. "Something about yourself,
ou'll remember."
"It was-not until you finish your
mtence," he said.
"Mr. Marvin, yourself or nothing."
"Myself! Do you mean it, Mabel? I
as oing to say that I love you, my
ueen b!"
That incorrigible young man was on
is knees, grasping the two warm
alms of Miss Lothorp. Her dark head
as bent over him, the bonnie brown
res that David both loved and feared
ere looking down in his blue orbs
ith unutterable tenderness. What
ore was needed?
"Darling, your turn now," he whis
ered. "You liked-whom?"
"I! 0, David! I intended to tell
u-not now, but somewhere off in the
agune ao'es--that .I liked to listen to
te 'ladv s chat about--"
A pauso.
"Me! 0 darling of darlings!"
The postures were something artis
e, since their attitudes were struck
ite innocently, somewhat after that
ainting of Romeo and Juliet in Friar
awrence' s cell. The friar alone was
seded.
But lo and behold! Who made an
ppearance at this moment but that
merable gentleman in feminine garb
E-Aunt Eliza!
"David Mlarvin! Ye blamed
skes alive! I'm stwe I beg yer par
n, Miss Lothorp. I---"
"Aunt Eliza, allow me to introduce
y little wife to be," David said,rising
'm his cramped position.
"My soul! Ye don't say! Would
au marry an artist, Miss Lothorp?"
"Yes, indeed, any amount of them,"
t answered, with a fond glance at
avid.
"One at a time, darling, 1 think
ould be best," he suggested. "Tate

Great Men's Feet.
"Rev. Henry-Ward Beecher, the pas
r of Plymouth," continued Dr. Palm
, "has soft, chubby feet. He always
ears a broad-soled, easy-fitting shoe
the finest kid made, and suffers but
ttle from corns or bunions. I bright
up his finger and toe nails about
ace a month. Mr. Beecher is a most
teresting talker. The last time he
'as here he related many pleasant an
~dotes of his home in Peeks kill, whe're
e resides with his family during the
ammer. In speaking of the regimen ts'
acampment at Peaskill, Mr. Bieeher
imarked that the boys in blue greatly
.ded to the income of the shopkeepers
Ethe town, and taken upon the whole
icy improved its social and moral con
ition.
"Rev. D~r. Taimage, who recently
ied for Europe to rejoin his family
iLondon, is also one of my custom
t-s. His feet iu some respects resem
I a canoe, being long and narrow. I
innot say they are free from corns
ad bunions, like Mr. Beecher's, but
evertheless they, are pleasant to look
pon. Dr. Talmiage's tue-nails grow
at perfectly straight, and are as pink
ed white as a woman's. "-cw York

As a curious statistical trifle it may
e nt~uioned that the( United States

A Negro Flogged to Death.
Some time ago George Rouse wa
lynched at Vienna, Ga., for the murde
of Mrs. Doles. Tuesday last, Rouse
cousin arrived and, inquiring th
whereabouts of some of the lvncherc
said he would cut some of their wive!
throats before the week was out. Thi
was reported to these men, whereupo
a party was organized. They seize
the negro, took him to the woods, an
flogged him to death.
Medical Students Amuse Themselves.
After a boisterous procession las
Saturday night in celebration of Ilal
loween the students of Trinity Medics
School at Toronto suspended a mal
corpse from a hook on a butcher'
verandah. A policeman found th
body at three o'clock in the morning
and it was removed to the hospital
Two corpses were also found in th
hospital yard.

SENSIBLE PEOPL
A RE NOT EASILY DECEIVED, FO
they know quite well that good and bE
clothing are alike made to sell; and wl
was ever known to advertise poor clothinj
They know how nearly all clothiers ket
the finest and sell-on paper-at less the
it cost to make them. Honest prices, we
made and nicely fitting clothes, togeth
with a good name (justly deserved), a
bound to tell. *
The above being a fact, 1 state it mere
to enforce the point that I have ready b
inspection the largest and best assort
stock of Fall and Winter Clothing for me
youths and boys. that can be found in tl
State. They are peerless in variety at
honestly good all the way through; eve
the underlinings are shrunk and the trit
mings used are meant to wear, not mere
to help'sell the goods, as every garment
warranted as represented. There are u
assailable ramparts behind which I invi
you to deal. I am not here for a seast
ly; I am l'ere to stay. My stock this se
son is the largest I nave ever carried, at
it embraces every style and fashionab
garment that is made. I am willing i
compare them-with the merchafit taili
work, and it is with real pleasure to .ta
that the business of this EMPORIUM C
FASHION is steadily on the increase. 3
large and constantly increasing patronat
testifies more forcibly than words than ti
values offered by me are not equalled f
any house in the State.
To prove the truth of this I ask buye
to make their own comparisons, as I enjy
then a reputation abo% e that and bevor
that of all clothiers in this vicinity at lea
producing a superior class of regub
Tailor-made Clothing and Genth' Furnis!
ing Goods, Hats and Fine Shoes. This
the headquarters for the correct styles i
men's and boys' attire. All orders sent 1
my care will he promptly attended to.
