One night not long ago the
(laughter of one of our best citi
zens was awakened by a noise in
her room, and, upon sitting up,
discovered a inan, disguised in a
black mask, standing beside her
bed and calmly contemipla-ting her
fcatures by the aid of a )ul1's-eye
'Don't be alarmed, Miss,' he
said; 'I haven't taken anything
'Bless me!' said the girl; 'I do
believe it's a burglar.'
'Of course it is,' said the house
breaker, with an ung ratifying
smile, as he lit a cigarette. 'And
I am proud of it.'
'What do you want?' deiandiled
the young lady'.
'Well, I d(id want to sam ple you r

you looked so all-fired pretty lying
there with your auburn hair-j ust

waking you to see if you also had

'No-no,' she murmured.

are large. Our firm is now run

Su )DEN ItlSE IN BE EF.-When
the Federal General Wilson made
his raid into Alabama his forag
ing parties were out in every di
rection as the column moved on.
One of them called at a farm-house
in search of ment, and finding a
likely steer on the premises the
farmer was offered $3 in greenback
for the animal.
'Gentlemen, . that 'ar steer is
wuth a good deal more'n that,' he
looked the party over; 'but, seein'
it's you, I reckon I shall have to
One.of the Federals was trying
to catch the animal, when the
farmer suddenly cried out:
'Gentlemen, beef has gone up
over 100 per cent. *1 the last five

The Federal hadn't time to ask
why the market had changed so
suddenly, for a troop of Confeder

had been the first to sight, came
cliarging out of the woods, and in

snappishly. Then they had some
words, and she said:
'Well, I'm sure I don't know
how you expect we'll agree in the

'Oh, we'll agree well enough in
the next world.' said 'Mr. Squaggs,
sarcastically; 'we won't see much
of each other there. The Bible
says there's a great gulf fixed be

Having saidl this the old1 gentle

snickered to himself.
Mrs. Squiiaggs was thoughtful
for a moment, then with a twinkle
in her eye, she said:
