The spoken word, so soon forgot
By thee; but It haa perished not;
In other hearts 't is Hrlng still.

Those three will never more return.

I do not know that any one hast over
refwred publicly to the average stage
hand a wo 11 nd him at the on night
stands. I di not me-an the professional
stage hand, hut tln yung and pimply
party who acts as Unor walker for a
livery stable during the day and shifts
the scenery ut the theatre at night.
He Is a self made young man, who is
not afraid to appear before any audience
n a pair of high top rubber boot which
he has used all day to wash l
and light the footlights amid thunders of
applause. We had 0M of these gentle
men the other night. He brought nine
others to help him. I think that the
most of them sleep on the stage nights.
They were playing "old sledgfe" behind
the drop curtain when we came.
I do not know what tiny wi re there
for. We did not want them. W. did
not need them. They joyfully stood
aroi"id in the way and spat down a large
knothole near the curtain rope, although
it waa a hopeless task, for it dried up
before the next one could get ready, and
so they are no nearer to floating the
stage away than when they first began.
1 asked the head man if he would get
me a glass of water. He said he had to
remain in order to attend to the curtain.
As we do not use anv curtain or scenery or
properties, except a glass of water and
a stick of hoarhound candy, I thought
he couhl lie spared, but he did not seem
to think so, and I got a small boy to
bring roe the water, while the head boy,
now stage Napoleon, went to reading
once more the thrilling tale, "Married in
Haste, to Repent at CUtMgO; or. How I
Won Her.'" by A. Oner, Esq.
He was the tiredest voting nmn for one
who waa just in tin- tliitT and bloom and
heyday of life that I ever saw. He had
a rery retreating chin. Otherwise he
would not have had the strength of pur
pose to spit over it. His forehead also
naked to be excused and went back into
his hair in search of ideas and one
tiling and another, I judge
One of his front teeth had disapfteared.
Doubtless kicked out by an infuriated
horse while the two were sleeping in the
same stall, the horse teing tied, howev. i ,
and unable to get away, using his onlv
means of discouraging a bed fellow with
whom he could certainly hnve nothing in
common. The Ions of this tooth gave him
greater scope as an expectorator, and
would have assisted his smile if he had
ever smiled, but he never smiled. It is
very rare that such a man laughs. His
dignity and a set of liverwurst thought
works in a poor state of preservation, are
all he has. Life is a serious manor with
an ass. I do not say this in order to be
euphonious, but from the rich and over
flowing treasures of a ripo experience.
(I thought I would say that before some
one else did it for me.)
The ass is always sad and dignitied.
He is profound and mournful. If you
desire to see solemnity, dignity and men
tal obliquity, go to th- penitentiary and
to the corral when the deep voiced ass
with the low, retreating forehead trills
bis tremendous notes in the hush of the
My dead friend, Mr Shaw, once said
that dignity was no more the sign of
wisdom thrm tl- p:i t collar was the
aign of a shirt, and I can put my hand
on my heart and say he waa right.
I once knew a man who had a good
deal of dignity anil a beard that he
could part in the middle like a skye ter
rier's. With these rare gifts of mind
and heart he married a sweet voung girl
and got u reading notice of forty lines
in exchange for a wedge of linde cake,
which was afterward used in thin strijw
for double leading the editorials. He
advanced rapidly, until he had obtained
the confidence of all who knew him.
Cashing this confidence one Saturday
evening, he parted with his parted u lin
kers, his flowing hair became tied, and
in the morning, as a dignitied man who
had never Us;n known to smile, wrote
his name on the register at Montreal.

Of course slight reductions could be
made on this, say if you use field grasses
with powdered ulum on them and pressed
autumn leaves instead of the orchids,
you can save from $7,000 to $6,000. Or
If you want to trim your hail with fes-
toons' of seed corn and dried apples in
stead of palms, you may cut down this
bill $8,000 or $8,500.

A dinner in New Vork may also be ar
ranged nine 1 1 cheaper t ban $10 a plate,
by having several 'bright conversation
alists at each end of the table and skip
ping the horse doovers, arriving at once
at the removes of say a broiled pig's foot
on toast, a bottle of Ann Hizer Sec and
ice cream. A bright conversationalist
or a good humorist who is willing to give
a fair equivalent for his food can save
you at such a meal hundreds of dollars.
You might have to take the conversa
tionalist and humorist out into the wood
shed and give them something extra
before the meal, in order to keep them
up to where they would be willing to
sparkle and be the life of the party, but
even then it would be a great saving to
you. I once went to a delightful dinner
of this kind, but was not told to sparkle,
so talked entirely with a young lady
near me all the evening regarding Mr.
Russell and the Delsarte theory.
The host was so mad that he did not
pass me the pie at all. and ate my dried
prunes with the rich umbrella juice that
went with them, while I was looking the
other way. When he gave me my hat
and overcoat at last, in the hall, he hissed
in my oar:
"You have wont Iwtck on me and have
came to my house for the last time. If
you bad of done the square thing you
would have had as good u time as you
was ever at, and got your little old $5
besides, but now you can be excused. 1
didn't ast you to come here and stuff
yourself full of my victuals and then
talk art to a mere stripling of a girl. If
you want to get ahead y.ai want to do it
some other way."
1 tol i him trm when I found out
where to get ahead 1 would le sure to
give him the address. I thru selected a
good pair of overshoes, took what I
thought to bt a fresh cigar from the
stand and wont away. It did not smell
so fresh, however, after I lighted it as I
thought it would.
He was a coarse, vulgar man, with a
great deal of money, but too mean to
give his wife money enough to build her
dress sufficiently high to protect her
chest from the biting blast. Little do we
know, Mrs. Pennypacker, of the suffer
ing there is from exosuro even in the
homes of wealth.
"Bright Alfarata," San Jose, Gil., asks
what to do for an ingrowing nail and
how to make salt rising bread. I do not
know what to do. I never had c-vether.
"Theological Student." No, you are
wrong about that. At Guttenberg. on

passenger steamships of the Uuited

with England in the matter of iiassonor
steamers. Aside from tho Ilotxjfce-n
ferry and a naphtha launch our keels
are not found plowing the waters very
much. Buffalo Bill g'es over to London
with his Indians and scouting clothes in
a foreign steamship, and then foreign
steamships take 800,000 people over there
to see him. Then, when they got
through, foreign steamships bring them
home, also the fleecy William and his
band. Then be gies to i'uris in a for

When we get the World's fair it will
be the same way. The American is not
an aquatic, bird, but rather a hewer of
wood and vender of town lots. He
riseth up in the morning while it bj vet
night, and saith unto himself, I will
buy a farm in Anoka county, and I
will lay it out in lots, ami I will also
lay out the gentle a-s that buyeth the
same, and I will make him for to bray be

shall call for a room at an inn and he
shall record his name thereat, and the
name wherewithal he shall record him

"Birdie," Booth Broottra, N. Y., asks.
Who was Wild Bill, and how did bedieV
Wild Bill was a gentleman named Hick
ock, ami he did not reck aught for any
one It was said that ho had a most pecul
iar thorax. All bis ribs and breast bones
wen hu closely united that his heart and
side lights were encased in a bony pan-
pij almost impervious to u bullet, and
he was frequently spoken of as the man
with the hunting case thorax and Bes
wimer works. He could drink, or be
could let it alone, so he divided up the
time in such u way that he would let it
alone mostly while engaged in slumber.
He was shot in the back of the bead by
a brave but cross eyed man at Dead
wood in the spring of '70, us he sat at a
card table in one of the social centers of
that city, playing projjressive euchre.
Wild Bill wore profuse hair, in which
at early spring time the swallows were
wont to build their nests and rear their
The murderer of Wild Bill, after his
crime, came at once on horseback from
Duadwood to my town, where through
strong political influence I got an intro
duction to him. He talked pleasantly
and even kindly to mo, although he had
denied himself to all other reporters and
held himself aloof from the general pub
lic. He was rather plain in appeurance,
and yet I can truthfully say that among
all the murderers I have known, and who
have written im my autograph album, be
was the most unostentatious a-el least
puffed up by his sudden elevation. He
told me that he only regretted that he
had not fitted himself for the position to
which he found himself so suddenly ele
vated. On the day of his execution he ate a
hearty breakfast of bam and eggs, angel
food, pork sausage, blanc mange, calves'
liver, custard pie. mackerel, snow pud
ding and codfish bails. I e then wrote
in a steady hand the fol owing senti
ment in an album for a le ititiful young
lady who tried to get him ardoned:
"Dkar One I hope yo i willtry to

During tbe discussion incidental to the

Southwell made a statement of tbe
methods of meat inspection in Germany
which he described as follows: The ani
mal is first inspected alive, and if satis
factory, it is killed snd specimens taken
of five different parts of the beef and each
section is marked with a number. Then
an inspeetor Is obliged to give ach sam

in this connection bis belief that when
American beef is as carefully inspected
it will be admitted to Germany.

Mr. Southwell's assertion and from this
he branched out into a general talk on
