Everything he touched was found to

Tbs Ee3ult of a ''Personal.'1
A funny story is told of a lady who
was foolish enough to answer a "per
sonal" in a daily paper which stated
that a young man was desirous of mak
ing the acquaintance of a young wo
man, with a view to matrimony. She
carried on a long correspondence with
the advertiser, taking, however, tho
precaution to have her letters copied by
a confidential friend. She always sent
the copies and retained the originals.
Her answ ers came regularly, but her
correspondent was quite as cautious ' as
she was herself, for he always employ
ed a type-writer, and she had no means
of becoming familiar with his bandwii
ting. Finally, after a good deal of
gush, a meeting was agreed upon be
tween the pair, and the lady was some
what surprised when she arrived at the
place appointed, to see her brother
wearing in his buttonhole the flower
which was decided upon as the means
of identification. They both acknowl
edged their follv by indulging in a
hearty laugh and went home together,
fully resolved to have nothing further
to do with these traps to catch the un
wary called "personals." Boston
One of the survivors of the Jeannette,
a sailor, had been ordered to proceed

mediately to the Secretary whom bi
aroused from bed for that purpose.
