"Wlio is this man with the long, thin
less, the .stooping shoulders and the yellow
flowing hair? His name is Oscar Wilde.
One day when the superintendent of a
lunatic asylum was on a hunting expedition
in London he picked up Oscar and
took lu'm before a magistrate who asked
him his name.
" By the misty eyelids of the sleepy
moon I cannot tell you," answered tl e
prisoner. " Mamma would not like it."
From that moment. he became famous.
For breakfast he sips the dew from the
honeysuckles, and his dinner consists of
roast HI v bugs flavored with lavenderwater.
Half a dozen sachet-bags and ten trunks
constitute his baggage.
The trunks contain locks of hair which
he purchased cheap at a Surrey ropewalk.
No fashionable American girl will be long
without one. His soul yearns after sunflowers.

sunflower and a greenback and he will
take the greenback. In Chicago he is

so large. V"011 ne returns to hts native
land loaded with rock his " mamma" will
say to him:
" Oskie, the fortunes" of the family are
much imprroved. I want a new sealskin
saque and a dog cart." But the lilly
worshipper will depart from her saying.
" Well, I should smile. What does the
old woman take me for?"
After that, no Englishman will eat more
beef with his lillies, or drink more beer
with his sunflowers than Oscar.
Xo Women at the White House.
N. Y. Presp.
The ushrrs at the White House say that
they are very glad that there is no lady
living there. They liked Mrs. Hayes and
Mrs. Garfield wellenough, but they we're
bothered by who went to obtain
the influence of the President's wife.
Mrs. Hayes received almost as many applications
for office as her husband, and
finally a kind-hearted door keeper opened
the letters he knew were from applicants
for place in order to save Mrs. Hayes annoyance
and real grief. Often and often
again the usher would offer to get rid of a
horde of Hungry applicants for whom
she could do nothing. Mrs. Hayes always
very grateful for the promised relief, but
she was always careful to impress upon
the usher the necessity of not offending
the people to whom she" was refused. Mrs.
Garfield was of sterner stuff. She was not
annoyed so often, for Mrs. Hayes was really
looked upon by a large number of people
as the head of the family, but she was
annoyed a good deal more than she should
have been. She did not hesitate to dis
miss them very summarily, however,
simply telling the usher: " No ; no, I cannot
see these people, and I will not." The
fact that there is no ladv at the White
House not only relieves the ushers and
doorkeepers of these calls for office, but
of a great number of other little duties.
"Sir," began a creditor, who met one
of his victims on Grand River street yesterday,
" I sent you a bill in June." "Yes,
sir." " And again in September." "Yes,
sir." " And again in December?" "Yes,
sir." "And presume vou received one
the other day ?" " I did sir." " Well, sir,
well, sir ?" flustered the creditor. "Well,
you needn't feel so stuck-up over it," replied
the other, as he lighted a twenty
cent cigar, " there are firms in this town
who send me bills every two weeks in the
year, and they never stop me on the street
to brag about it, either ! I detest, such egotism,
sir! Good morning!"
Tommy was a little rogue, whom his

Mrs. Sergeant Mason made her appearance
in the court room for the first time
this morning. She sat down by the stove
and held her baby on her lap. Here the
junior Mason stretched out his limbs toward
the heat and occasionally crooned
out a note of satisfaction. Mrs. Mason
was attired in black, wearing a black straw
hat adorned on the side with a white rose
and wound around with a voluminous
It has been noticeable that about two-thirds
of the people from the outside
world, whose cuiiosity has attracted them
to the court-room, have been ladies.
These ladies have always stopped in the
ante-room to dandle Mason's baby. As a
rule they have appeared to have much
sympathy with Mason and his wife. Recently
a party of ladies richly dressed, after
leaving the court-room, stopped to
fondle the baby, and before they left held
a consultation, "which resulted intheleader
of the party secretly handing to Mrs. Mason
a package supposed to contain substantial
evidence of their sympathy. The babe,
which is the object of much attention,
was born in the barracks fifteen months
The Secret orUcnfiis.
"They talk," said Tom Marshall to an
intimate friend, " of my astonishing burst
of eloquence, and doubtless imagine it is
my genius bubbling over. It is nothing
of the sort. I'll tell you how I do it:
" I select a subject, and study it from
the ground up. When T have mastered it
fully, I write a speech on it. Then I take
a walk, and come back and revise and and
correct. In a few days I -subject it to
another prunning, and then recopy it.
Next I add the finishing touches, round it
with graceful periods, and commit it to
emorv. Then I speak it in the fields, in
my father's lawn and before my mirror,
until gesture and delivery are perfect.
J It sometimes hikes me six weeks or two
months to get up a speecn. when 1 nave
one prepared, I come to town. I generally
select a court day, when there is sure
to be a crowd. I am called on for a speech
and am permitted to select my own subject.
I speak my piece. It astonishes the
people, as I intended it should, and they
go away marveling at my powor of oratory.
They call it genius, but it is the
hardest Kind of work."
The postoflice existed in America from
its earliest settlement. At the beginning
it was merely a receptacle in the coffee
house. Tlxjrc letters that arrived from
abroad were deposited, and then taken by
to whom they were addressed, or
delivered by neighbors. In the records of
the General Court of Massachusetts for
1G39 wo find that notice " be given that
Richard Fairbanks, his house in Boston,
the place appointed for all letters which
are brought beyond the seas, or are to be
sent thither, to be left with him ; and ho
is to take care that they are to be delivered
or sent according to the directions,
and he is allowed for every letter a penny,
and must answer all miscarriages through
his own neglect in this kind."
Casper Mueth, an old German farmer
about sixty-five years of ago, residing at
Padderborn, or Prairie Du Long, about
twelve south of Belleville, Mo., died from
injuries received from a vicious ram. The
old man ono morning went out to the
barn premises to feed the stock. The ram
attacked Mueth as soon as he entered the
oarnyard, and butting him in the stomach
knocked him to the ground. The ram
continued his butting until the old man
was unconscious and nearlvdead, when he
was rescued by mejnbers of the family. lie
was taken to the house and a physician
called, but his injuries were of such a
character that they proved fatal.
