Hums sung long ago, of "man's inhu.
manity to man," nnd tho world slnco then
has applauded his beautiful sentiment nnd
proved by action its approval of his mo
rality. Yet, in tho wildest flights of tho
poet's Imagination, It did not occur to him
to try his muse's power on tho cognate
subject of "woman's inhumanity to woman;'
poi-ilily for tho reason that in his day
tho claims of the sex to the world's notice
had not advanced to tlio stage which they
now occupy. Nevertheless, tho thcmci
although not now, contains in itself much
that tends to sadden nnd discourago tho
boliovor in tho untarnished sincerity and
goodness of woman, and convico'
him of tho presence of selfishness
and vindlctivoness which ho
would not willingly accept ns n part of
her character. "Wo Imvo been led to tlieso
reflections by tho dally notices which tho
telegraph nnd press forco upon u, in tho
proceedings on the trial of Mrs. Wharton,
now progressing nt Annapolis. Hero is a
woman, n lady, who, until this charge
was brought against her, was nmong tho
mot favored of tho best society of Haltl
moro. Intelligent, refined and hospitnblo,
her houso was tho center of nil that was
bright and gay and sho was tlio cynosure
of tho be nit v and wit which natherod
around her. Of course wearo to pre-
nunc that must of tho bright galaxy which
visited her, professed to ho nnd were In
their own belief her friend', as warmlvnnd
devotedly attached as equality of stand
ing and similarity of sentiment would na
turally induce them to bo. Perhaps all of
tiiem had, at some period or other, sworn
undying lovo and friendship to her and
pledged their lives ns a tost of their earn-
itness. A chiingo has como over her for
tunes, and instead of reigning n queon of
society, siie dwells an inmate of a prison
cell, charged, how unjustly God only
knows ! with the awful crimo of murder.
"Woman's inhumanity to woman" bus
seldom kbcen illustrated with greater force
than in her case. Thoio who wish to think
well o! her case nro not of her own eov.
Tho thoughtlessness with which refined,
intelligent, good, and, in mot of tho rela
tions of life which call for commiseration,
tender-hearted women, pronounce her
guilty mid call down the judgment of
heaven upon her, is ono of tho most pain
ful and ollViisivo Instances of tho Injustice
o! women's impulse). For one nmu who
undertakes to defrtid .Mrs. Wharton 'ten
members of , her own sox will de
nounce her, anu this without even
having followed tho testimony eliclt
J "ii her trial with care, or
having arrived at anything Hint deserves

THOSE OF THE TELEGRAPH.
AMUSING EPISODE AT A HOTEL
from tlioS.m Frnnclrco Chronicle.
Two young men, telegraph operators,
board at ono of our leading third-class
hotels nnd being of a somewhat hilarious
disposition, find great amusement In car
rying on conversation with each other at
tho table, by ticking on their plates with
knife, fork, or spoon. For tho informa
tion of those not acquainted with tele
graphy, ll may bo well to slate that a com
bination of sounds or ticks constitttto tho
telcgrnphical phabet, nnd porsons acquaint
ed with tlieso sounds can converse thereby
as intelligently ns with spoken words.
Tho young lightning-strikers, ns already
stated, weru in tho habit of indulging in
table, talk by this means, whenever tliov
desired to say anything private to each
other. For instance, No. 1 would pick up
his knifo and tick oil' somo ueh remark as
this to Nn. 1! ; "Why is this butter liko
tho offense of Hamlet's uncle ?" No. 'J.
"1 givo it ii-." .o. 1 'Ilecauso its rank
and tmolls to hoaven." Of course the
Joke U not appreciated by tlio landlord,
who sits by, because ho doisn't understand
li'legtnphi'i ticks, and probably ho ,vou!d-
n l appreciate tl nnieli ll lio did ; but the
Jokers enjoy it immensely and laugh Im
moderately, wlnlo tin, oilier kiio'Ih wniider
what I'll 11 be tho occasimi fur lli!. mixri.
ment, and naturally concludu Uiu jor,i
tors must he idiot.
A few davs ngo, while theo fiin-lovin'
youths wero seated at breakfait, a stout
built young man enter.'d tlio dining mom
with a handsome girl on his nrm, wIiosm
bliKlung countenanco showed her to be a
bndo. The couple had, in fact, been mar
ried but a day or two previous) nnd hud
comu to Sin Frunei-co from their homo in
Oakland, or Mud Springs, or somo oilier
rural village, lor tho purpose of spend-
invr mo Honeymoon. 1 lio ti'lfgmpljic
tickers commenced as soon as thu husband
and wifu had seated themselves.
No. 1. op -in-d tho discourse as follows;
" What ii lovely little pigeon this is along
bid" of me ain't sho?
No. 2. ' Perfectly charming looks as if
butler wouldn t melt in her mouth. Just
in irried, I guess; don't you think so? "
No. 1. ' Yos, I should Judge sho was.
What luscious lips she's got I If that coun
try bumpkin beside her was out of the
road, I'd give her u hug and kiss just for
No. li. "Suppose you try it, anvhow.
tilvoliera littlo liud'o under thu tablo
with your knee. "
Thuro is no tolling to what extent thu
impudent rascal iiii''lit havo irone. hut fur
an amazing and entirely unforiccn event.
Tho bridegroom' face Imd flushed and a
dark scowl was on his brow durinc thn
progress of the licking conversation : but
the operators wero too much oecunled with
ivieh other to ptynny attention t i him.
Tho reader may form fomu idea of tho
young man's consternation when the
partner of the ladv n okod on hU knlf.,
nnd ticked oil' the following torso but vig
orous message :
"This lady is my wife, and as soon as
sho gets through with her breakfast 1 pro-

An English woman has sol about claim

protest. She is an unmarried imiy oi good
position, living In a house, tliu relit of
which mo pavs cut oi nor own money, in
l'eerits Park. When tho government
tuxes wero demanded, .ately, tho refused
to pay. Slio sent to tlio collector a formal
protest, announcing mat nor reiusai to pay
was on prlticiplo and not bccaiiso of ina
bilityon the ground that those who would
ml allow her any representation In thn
liiw-inaklng of th'i country, Imd no light to
call on her to pay taxes. She received
uvural other invitations to pay, nnd 1 be
lieve the authorities t ouglit tlio wliolo
atlnir a decided liul-ance, and would Imvo
bee" glad to back out of It and let thu la
dy keep l or money il they could. Hut In
common decency they could not nbandon
their claim in that cao and enforce it in
others. So at last they sent in bailill',
oized somo of her furniture, and sold it.
Of couno tills was uxactly what sho

A JOKE OX A TAILOIt.
In Boston, many years ngo, thero lived
(as there do now, wo venttiro to say,) two
young fellows, rather waggish in their
ways, nnd who were in tho habit of patron
izing rather extensively a tailor by tho
name of Smith. AYoll, ono day, into his
shop tlieso two young blades strolled.
Says ono of them : " Smith, we've been
making a bet. Now wo want you to make
cacli of us a suit of clothes, wait till tho
bet is decided, and tho one that loses will
pay tho whole." " Certainly, gentlemen ;
I shnll be most happy to servo you," says
Smith, nnd forthwith their mcasuro was
taken, nnd indue courso of ti Tie the clothes
wero sent home. A month or two passed
by, nnd yet our friend, tlio tailor, saw
nothing of his customers. Ono day, how
ever, lio met them, nnd thinking it almost
timo tho bet was decided, ho made up to
them and asked them how their clothes
fitted. " Oh I " excellently, says ono ; " bv
tho by, Smith, our bet isn't decided vet.
"Ah I" says Smith, " what is It?'' Why
I bet that when liunkrr Hill Monument
falls it will fall toward the south I Hill
hero took mo up, nnd when tho bet is do
cided we'll call nnd pay you thnt litt'o
bill." Smith's faco stretched to doublo
its usual length, but ho soon recovered
