Lost and RccnvereA
The reporter was told an aete-bellum
stury, or two of them, twin incidents, that
al hough true and can be proved, are
well, wonderful, to say the least. It was
to d by the captain of the firs,t passenger
stoamer that ever plied the turbid waters
of the Ocklawaha. The vessel only had
ore stateroom, the captain's room and the
pilothouse. On this trip up was an old
nt rthern gentleman and his wife. The
husband was sitting forward reading
uMng an elegant pair of gold rimmed, gen
uine pebble spectacles. All at once a limb
blushed alongside and the spectacles dia
He said nothing of his loss until his re
turn, supposing them gone, and useless to
trouble the captain to stop the boat. Well,
tie trip was made, the parties returning,
and the boat laid up a week and started
out on another trip, but this time with an
other couple a3 passengers. Just before
u;ght the lady and husband were sitting
in the same seat occupied by the gentleman
when he lost his spectacles on the former
trip. Alongcarae a limb and caught a fine
si ik net and carried it away. The lady was
bi moaning her loss when, looking down
ir to her lap, and lo! there were the lo:-t
gold rimmed spectacles. They had become
ftstened to the limb, and the last brush
rubbed them off. So much for the spec-tjc-les.
They were sent to the owner, and
the captain still has his letter of thanks, in
w hich was a five dollar bill
Now comes the other part. The lady who

common one as a makeshift lrom the
country store kept at Silver Springs, until

o i the same lat, the same place was

knowing or noticing it, liovever, when her
n-;t and switch were ubotit to become eu
tiiugled in the limb again. She frantically
clutched both, .-mil beyond a scratch or so
pissed in safety; but lo! again, on lookinu
Hi her lap, there lay her tine silk net lost

How Louisa Got Her Slio.
The revival meeting at the First Metho
d st church was called a want meeting, and
was conducted by Ale Mulkev. The
preacher said in the course of his talk:
"My wife s shoes were worn out and she
s: iid, "Abe, I ought to have some shoes; I
"a. n ashamed of my feet.' 1 answered.
'Iiouisa.jou shall have them.' I hadn't a
cent, but I crawled up in the stable loft
a id said, 'Oh, Lord, Louisa needs some
siioes; please give them to her. Don't you
know you sain, "Seek first the kingdom of
and all t Lings shall be added." Now,
Lord, we have sought; please give Louisa
"I went out on the street awl met Del
I ichardson, and he said, "Why, hello,
.Abe, I've got religion sixteen ounces to t he
piund.' And I said, 'Thank God, Dei, I
h ive got it thirty-six inches to the yard

when you were in the grocery business 1
It ft owing you thirty-live dollars.' 1 whis

'Jut I ain't got a cent.' I sorter swunk
up. I said, 'Del, what have you got ? He
s iid, A bully crop of wheat growing.' I
Hiked, "Will you give me a mortgage on
t-iat? He said, 'I will.' We walked up to
t le lawyer's office and fixed tip the papers.
1 hen I stepped into C. D. Pickett's and
siid, 'C. D., what is that worth?" He an
s.vered, 'One hundred cents on the dollar.'
I said, 'Give me some shoes for Louisa.'
"Did you ever notice how a fellow will
march home about Christmas with the
s rings of a pair of shoes hanging over his
finger? They arc for his wife, about num
J.er fives. That's the way I we'nt, and
Lonisa hasn't been out of shoes since. Ask

In a small town of northern Vermont
the inhabitants are noted for their earlv
Liarriages. An unmarried young woman
vho has passed her twenty-fifth birthday
universally regarded as un old maid.
and a 3-oung man who has reached the
s ime age in an unwedded state is pro
tounced a confirmed bachelor, and the
young people t hemselves appear to accept
the enrreut opinion.
One handsome young fellow, twenty-six
j ears old, was a great trial to his mother,
a bustling, energetic farmer's wife. As
she lamented to a summer boarder, "it did
s;em as n mram was possesseu to stay
single," no matter what she could say.
'An' 'taint likely," she would add fret-
f ally, "that any girl will be takin' up with
1 im after a year or two, when he s settled
cown an tjeginnin to iook. old:
Hiram himself was not given to.senti-
j lent, and furthermore wascjuite uncon
scious of his own attractions. He showed
the summer boarder some dreadful photo
graphs of himself which had been taken
the previous winter to please his mother,
eud remarked gravely:
"Mother was set on havm' 'em, an 1
nly waited to see if I wa'n't likely to get
( ny lietter lookiu'. Dut come last winter
1 see I was lieginniu to fade, so I had em

The Fata Morgana.
The Fata Morgaua is a singular aerial
phenomenon, akin to the mirage. It is
feen in many parts of the world, but most
frequently and in greatest perfection at the
Straits of Messina, lietweeu Sicily and
Italy. So many conditions must coincide,
however, t hat even there it is of compara-
tively rare occurrence, lo allow of its
production the sun must be at an angle of 45
degs. with the water, both sky and sea must
lie calm, and the tidal current sufficiently
strong to cause the water in the center
to rise higher than on the edges of the
htrait. When these conditions are fully
met the observer on the heights of Cala
bria, looking toward Messina, will behold
a series of rapidly changing pictures, some-
limes of most exquisite beauty.
Castles, colonnades, successions of beau-
tlful arches, palaces, cities, with houses
and streets and church domes, mountains,
lorests, grottoes will appear and vanish.

sometimes placidly sailing over the deep,
sometimes inverted, while a naio
rainbow surrounds every image. It is sup-
;osed that the images are due to the irreg
ular refractive powers of the different lay
ers of air above the sea, which magnify, re-
lent and distort the objects on the Sicilian
shore beyond; but to the Italians these
utmmlar anncarances are the castles of the
Princess Morgana, and the view of them is
supiosed to briug good fortune to the be
holder. St. IjOUIS Uioue-uemocrau
