A FICKLE IMMIGRANT.
Her Experience With Two Lovers at
Uncle Sum's Barge Offlce.
"There seem to be manifold oppor
tunities among the imiigrants coauing
to America on shipboard for falling in
love, particularly on the slower steam
ers, when people are thrown togetler
for a period of from 12 to 18 days."
says John Gilmer Speed in iisl'e's.
"In this case a worthy your; R.ussian
was cheated out of a very pretty bride
by a likely Italian fellow traveler of
the maiden. Strangely enough, she
knew not one word of Italian nor lie
a word of Russian, yet the bride's
countryman was jilted, and the panto
mime lovers were married and set
forth gayly and confidently to learn
each other and the great new world
they had entered at one and the same
"Another case was equally ludicrous.
A Swedish maiden of somewhat fickle
mind fell In love with a fellow voy
ager without apprising him of the fact
that she was betrothed to another man
whom she was to meet at the barge
office and marry. It was her intention
to hurry ashore with her new lover
and outwit the former by a prior cere
mony, but the red tape of the office
prevented that, and the first lover came
to welcome his bride. She then as
promptly fell in love with No. 1. But
when No. 2 pleaded and threatened,
she could not decide which one she
loved the better, so she was detained
while the two men haunted the barge
office, glaring at each other.
"When the detention time had elaps
ed, the bride, still not knowing her
mind, was sent unceremoniously back
on the same steamer that brought her
over, both jilted lovers abandoning the
field In despair. But on arriving on
her native soil once more the maiden
dared not face her people. so back she
came. having just money enough to
pay her passage, and sent for lover No.
1, declaring that she loved him the bet
ter. He replied that he was very much
obliged, but as he had already married
a handsomer girl in the interval he was
compelled to decline to come for her.
The maiden then sent word to No. 2 to
like effect, but he declared that he had
had enough of the fickle feminine, and
thus in defeat the maiden was trans
ported back again to face the leers and
jeers of her native hamlet."
Why tie Wanted a Receipt.
There was a lawyer in the Indian

One of the aborigines employed him

done to the client's satisfaction, the
fee duly paid and a receipt for it duly

relied the red man. There was some
argument. and the attorney finally de

a Christian I have been very careful

Why It Is Called Dutch Gar.
When Ben Butler was endeavoring
to get the Union gunboats up the
James, he found the water in the bend
at Dutch Gap too shallow to let them
pass, to say nothing of the fact that
the Confederates had erected two or
three batteries along the bend'In order
to give him a warm reception. So he
went ahead and cut a canal across the
neck and suddenly. instead of being
13 miles from IRichmond, he was only
six. Ever since that time the canal
has been used, and the government
now considers it the channel of the
river and keeps it in shape.. The plin
tations along the land were thus sutd
denly drained of their very lifeblood
and have naturally fallen into decay.
