PERSOYAL PraGRAPHS.
-W. S. Gilbert, Mr. Sullivan's col
aborer, is to pass the winter in Egypt.
-KingTheebaw isahandsome young
fellow of twenty-six.
-Col. J. Artroy Knox, of Texas
Siftings, has admitted that he is the
author of "Beautiful Snow."
-George W. Cable, the novelist,
has become a Sunday-school teacher
at his new home in Northampton,
Mass.
-Edwin Booth was fifty-two years
old on November. 20,a nd celebrated
the anniversary in a quiet way in Bal
timore.
-Dr. Albert Thompson, a young
Irish physician, has been presented
with the 'Abell medal for removing
poison in a case of diphtheria by suck
ing it away.
-Lr. Alvarez, the famous French
homceopathist, but who believes in big
doses in the way of bills, sued for
$12.5,000 for medical attendance of a
Princess, but was awarded only $17,
000, though he had refused $30,000 to
compromise the matter.
-Sam Jones managed to keep out
of the way of the cvclone in his North
western tour, but he has met with a
terrible blow in the discovery that a
bogus Sam Jones has been doing en
tireiy successful revival work through
reveral towns in Minnesota.
--A colored citizen of Prince Edward
county, Virginia, ascribes Gen. Lee's
election to the fact that he carried
charms. Ne says he "seed 'em."
When asked what the charms were, he
said, the left hind foot of a graveyard
iabbit, a vial of stumpwater, and a
coon bone toothpick.
-Schofer, the billiardist, when
playing wears full evening dress. He
has a fine diamond stud in his shirt.
Maurice Vignaux also wears a full
dress suit. His diamond stud is worn
in the shirt-collar. Schmfer carries
his cues in a green sack, and a piece
of chalk in one of his vest pockets.
Vignaux carries his jointed stick in a
leather case.
-Jay Gould's father, a staid, honest
old farmer in Deleware eonnty, New
York, bad very little faith in his son's
capacity to get on, because he was not
fond of chopping, ploughing, sowing
or reaping. When the lad decided t
quit his rural home, the elder Gould,
it is said, handed him half a dollar,
and told him be would certainly go to
the devil. And lie is still going there.
-Judge Kelley says that his present
good health is largely due to his mas
tery of the tobacco habit. He burned
the weed five and fifty years and he
actually has slept with the quid in his
mouth. Now he neither touches nor
tastes the staff and the blood feels
r..uch better in his veins than when
the globules bore with them a burden
of nicotine.
-Sir Noel Paton has at present on
his easel, far advanced toward com
pletion, a picture for Queen Victoria,
which deserves some notice on account
of the purpose for which it is designed
as well as for its own sake. The pic
ture is to be the centrepiece in the
private oratory at Osborne. Its sub
ject is Christ in the Garden finding the
three Disciples asleep, and its proper
title is "Vigilate et Orate." It is to
be. plaeed over the prayer desk, be
tween two other pictures by the same
artist, repli:as of larger works, enti
tled resapectively, "The Good Shep
herd" and "The Man of Sorrows."
The three pictdres thus form in effect
a trirtych, though they will not be
affectually joined.
ROW TO GO TO rHamtLETON
The Tdip Shortenesd, and Kade Xore Agree
..able thanl Formerly.
The traveling public are greatly in
debted to the Atlantic Coast Line for
tte making of a new and most agreea
ble route~ from the up-country to
Charleston. This line extends from
Columbin to Sumter~ by the Wilming
ton, Columbia & Augusta Railroad,
thence to Lane's by the Central, and
from Lones to Charleston by the North
eastern. The Coast Line, already con
trolling the W. C. & A. and the N. E.
Rl. R.,~had but to build the Central,
forty-one miles, long, to have this new
route from Columbia to Charleston,
one hundred and thirty-seven miles
long. The work was finished a little
over a year ago, and the new line has
steadily grown in popularity. The
first imp~iovement was in the shorten
ing of the time between the capital and
the metropolis - which, of course,
brought the competing line to do as
well, till now the trip is made in three
hours and twenty minutes. When it
was made, a few years ago, in five
hours, conservative people thought
that progress in rapid transit had
.re' a climax!
~f'toake such good time requires a
irst-rate road-bed, and first-class roll
ing-stock. These the Coast Line has
provided, and the comfort of the trav
eler is infinitely greater than in the
good old days when twenty miles an
hour constituted the height of railroad
ambition.
Of course in making such speed,
there is no such waste as "twenty
minutes [or less] for supper." There
is, therefore, a buffet car, furnished
with comfortable revolving chairs,
whereon the passenger may sit, as at
the table of~ a first-class hotel, and
enjoy his "snack" in peace and at
leisure. The menu is simple, but
nicely prepared and nicely served. It
is all that the traveler wants for sup
per or for breakfast. The prices charg*
ed are very reasonable. The contrast
between a meal (?) at the average
railroad eating-house and the "snack'
on the buffet of the Coast line is very
suggestive of Mark Twain's "Five
minutes for dinner-America," and
"Thirty minutes for dinner-France.'
The price of tickets is the same on
all lines.*
-Frank Ilatton, Assistant Postmas
ter-General, says it makes him sick tc
hear the word "reformer," and tellh
the reason why, thus: "The men whc
called themselves reformers used tc
come up and camp out in the corridors
of the Postoffice Department while
they demanded offices for th~ir rela
tives andI even for their wives' rela
Couldn't Account for It.
Two gentlemen of color, interested
in a living in North Mitneapolis, were
recently overheard having the follow
ini conversation: "Sam, I hear dat
dar's a good many spring chickuns
bein' tuk from de roosts in Hlighlan'
Park. 'Sdat so?"
"Yes, niggah. dat am de sad fac.'
An' Ise berry sorry that such or rep

Growth of H!ir on a Dead Body.
Two years ago William A. Walters
was buried in the Stone Chapel ceme
tery, in Woodcock valley, Huntingdon
county, Md. Tue other day the body
was exhumed to be taken by friends of
the deceased to Williamsport for rein
terment. When the coifin was reached
by di-ggers they discovered that it had
sprung at the joints, and out of the
crevIces the hair on the skull protrud
ed in all directious. On opening the
casket the hair on the head was found
to measure eighteen inches, the whis
kers eht inches, and the growth on
the breast six inches, notwitisu ansiing
the body had been cleauly shaved whon
prepared 2or burial. X similar in
stance occurred in 1882. at tie Casse
ville cemetery, tit teen zuies fron t hore.
Upon exhuming the remains of Jacob
Bressweil the skeleton, whieb had been
buried for ten years. had h;ir on it ten
to twelve inches in le::gth and us firm

Good Work of the Life Saving.Servi e.
The annual report of the superin
tendent of the life saving service shows
that the number of disasters to docu
mented vesssels within the field of sta
tiou operations during the year was
256. There were on board of these
vessels 2,206 persons, of whom 2,196
were saved and only ten lost. The
number of shipwrecked persons who
received succor at stations was 568, to
whom 1,686 days' relief in the aggre
ate was afforded. The estimated
value of the vessels involved in these
disasters was $3,519,550, and of the
cargoes $1,084,905. The total valne of
the property imuerilled was $4,604,455.
Of this amount $3,352,760 was saved
and g1,251,695 lost. The number of
essels totally lost was 59.
The following table gives a summa
ry of the statistics of the service from
the introduction of the present system
in 1871 to the end of the fiscal year.
The loss of life stated below includes
183 lost at the wrecks of the Huron
and the Metropolis, which are really
dot chargeable to the service:

South Carolina at New Orlean..
The New Orleans Times-Demnocrat
says: "In conversing with Mr. A. L.
Rdden, the acting commissioner of
South Carolina, a reporter learned that
he had advices of the shipment of the
following goods for the exhibit
of that State, which are expected
to arrive in a few days: Samples of
fertilizers from sixteen different manu
facturers, a quantity of sheaf rice, min
erals from the celebrated flaile gold
mines, mineral water from the Glenn
Springs, crockery made of kaolin
mined in South Carolina; one block of
this kaolin will be exhitbed, weighing
over 1,600 pounds; cotton seed meal
and cake, samples of cotton goods
from five dlifferent large mills, embrac
ing all ciasses of such goods made in
the State, samples of boots and shoes,
woollen goods, china ware, bent-wood
furniture, and bags and bagging from
the Charleston Bag Manfacuring
Company. There will be ample space
provided in this departm~ent for the
collective colored exhibit, which will
be both educational and industrial. In
the pavilion of South Carolina will be
displayed a full line of the wines and
beer of the State."
-The'armistice between Bulgaria
and Servia closes one of the most bril
liant and satisfactory campaigns ever
fought in war-scarred Europe. Prince
Alexander has achieved a splendid
fame. Instead of a scorned, snubbed
and depreciated princelinig he is ap
proved a natural leader and sovereign.
He cann'ot now be reckoned out in any
settlement which the Powers may make
of the affair. By pursuing the Ser
vians across the border he has gained
the full advantage of his success in a
war wantonly forced upon him. The
bragging King Milan will pay for his
hardihood with his throne, and the
greedy Servians will be assessed all
the damages. It is as fine an example
of retributive justice as war often
affords.

The first timue ti:e mocking-bird's
ioor vas op fned,ihe was not in the least
surprised; no doubt, seeing others at
liberty, 1e had expected it. At any
rate. whatever his emotions,he instant
ly ran out on tiie perch placed in his
doorway, and surveyed his now world
from this positiou. He was in no
pan;c, not even in haste. When fully
ready. he began his tour of inspection.
Firn, to see if he really could reach
the trees without, throughi those large.

ach of the taree, out gently,not bounc
ing agiUSt them so Niolently as to fall
to the flour, as more impetuous or less
intelligeut birds invariably do. Having
proved each to be impassable, he was
satistied. and never tried again. Next,
the ceiling interested him, and he fiew
all around the room, touching it gently
everyw here, to assure himseli of its
ature. Convinced tnus in a short time,
that his bounds were only widened,not
removed, he went on to investigate
losely what he had looked at frou a
distance: every bird-cage, inside as
well as outside, if the owner happened
to be away, every piece of furniture,
pictures, books, and the pincushion.
where he was detained some time try
ing to carry oif the large black heads
of shiawl-pins. The looking-glass ab
orbed him most completely on the
irst day; he 1w against it, he hovered
before it, slowly passing from bottom
to top, aligated on the top and looked
over behind. I think he never solved
that mystery to his own satisfaction, as
he did that of the window-glass, which
must have buen quite as inexplicable.
and it was never without a certain
charm for him. He had no trouble in
finding his way home: standing on a
cage next to his, he saw his own door
perch, recognized it instantly (though
he had been apon it only once), and,
being hungry, dropped to it and ran
into the cage.-Oive Thorne Miller, in
