CANINE FiTxr.-Some ycars
ago a man was buried in the Grey
fri ara Cemetery at E.linburgh,
Scotland. His dog made a bed on
the grave, and fromi that time he
has lived in that yard. At a giv
ed time, on the pealing out of the
clock, the dog goes out for break
fast, which is given to him at one
place. At one o'clock as the time
is struck, he goes to a bakers, who
has given him his dinner all these
vea rs. He consumes about one
hour and a half to refresli himself.
He then comes back, and keep.s
watch. He has done this more
than five years. What is strange,
on Saturdays he will wait for an
extra dinner. This he keeps till
Sunday. ledos not go for din
ner on that day. Thousandls vis
it the yard to see this dog.
-A recent visitor to the battle
fields of King's Mountain and the
Cowpens in South Carolina reports
that the monuments placed there
many years ago are ruined by rel
ic hunters. Thefacin(gofthe Cow
pens monument, "E1i'ected by the
Washington Light Infantry of
Charleston in 1856," is nearly all
gone; the garound ha g n up to
forest and soon there will b~e nmoth
ing to mlark the sp)ot where one of
the most imp~ortanlt events of our
Revolntionary history took place.
-The rains of the pr'esenit sea
son in California have been great
er than .at any time within the
p~ast 34 years. 'For the first ten
days of June the rainfall has been
more than twice the~ amount of
rainfall than for any entire month.
sine 1 850. Crops throughout the
State have been beaten to the
ground b)y the sweping floods.
-Married, in this city, on Momday,
June 2, 1884, by Geo. 11. [me, J. P.'
Mr'. HI. Asher' and Mrs. M. E. Asher',
all of Phelps county. T welve ye'ars~
ago this couple wereC unfited in the holy
bondsb of matrimony, each heart over
flowing with love for the other. But
from some cause the ardlent love grad
umally leaked out until, in 1879, they
thought not a speck as big as a knat's
eye remained. It was torture to live
ton'ether, and a divorce was grantedl.
Ahter fiye years of lonmesomneness, and,
perhaps, uo chance of a better partner
being offered, we are happy to again
chronicle their union, with the hope
that past experience will teach them
true devotion until death.-Rolla (Mo.)
