maids of that town, rich in dollars, had
liv*d together for nenrly a generation in
their aucient, gable end mansion, bolted
and barred from all intercouso with the
outside world, lest they should be robbed
of the treasure they hoarded so carefully,
and mailing only occasional sallies from
the looked and darkened house to pur
chase the scant necessaries which they
begrudged themselves. Kot long since
the strange sisters, then nearly eighty
years of age, purchased a. house upon a
dindent street and moved their goods
into it. Days uil'.l weeks passed, and
the neighbors, discovering no ts\gi-S of
living inhabitants about the place, deter
mined to fathom the mystery, and with
that purpose took police aid and effected
an entrance, when a fearful .scene met
their astonished gu7.e. In a sitting pos

the sisters stark and cold in death, while
in the opposite corner crouched, mutter

the other, wko, with the ruling passion

The Dollar.?The w^rd dollar, so
familiar to ^is all, and so important to
most of us, conies from the German
"Thai," which means "valley" Now
by what process can you imagine this
word has been made to mean a piece, or
sum of money, worth iuour currency one
hundred cents? The dictionary clears
up the mystery. "Thai," meaning valley
is pronounced in German much like our
word Uill. From the year 1547 to 1526.
the counts of Schlick, an old German
family, were accustomed to coin peiecs
of money of about an ounce in weight,
and worth SI.13 cents of our money, in
the small town of Jonchimisthnl, (valley
of Joachim,) in Bohcmin. The pieces
were called, from tho place where they
were, "Joaohimisthnlcr." Thi.r word ?.va*
afterwards shortened into "thaler," and

A Singular Character.
An old member of Louis XVIII'a
body guard died tho other day Lea Batig
noIlcs. and was interred at the cemetery
of Montmartre. He wai one of those
characters that are mere often met with
in uotoIs than in real life. His accom
plishments were various, lib execution
on the violin was only surpassed by his
skill in drawing, and both by his talent
for versification. This universal genius,
Who was nicknamed ''the artist" by his
comrades was onepf the best swoixhmen
in P iris. His lovo of dueling was such
that, notwithstanding all his science, he
received many a rapier thrust. One day
in particular he fought three duels for
the following cogent reasons: the first
was with a gentleman who looked at him
askew, tho second with an individual
who looked Urn in the fucc, the third
with a passing stranger who had not
looked at him at all. On meeting a cit
izen who had the week before lodged his
rapier in his ribs, tho indomitable duel
list observed to a friend who was support
ing him: "Npw, there's a fellow to
whom I must administer auothcr good

A Vanished Illusion.

confessed that the Jewish quarter of the

A Threatened Evil.
The Philadelphia Commercial List is
alarmed at the prospect of the future of
the American youth. It says that in
nearly every trade there is an organiza
tion, generally called a Union, which
says that only a certain number of youths
shall be intruded in that trado; that
when instructed they shall work in strict
accordance with the rules of the associa
tion, and that no matter how great their
skill or natural aptitude for the business,
they shall have no greater wages than
any idle dissolute bunglers who has been
admitted into the organization. Here,
in the very centre of free government,
we see an organization whose purpose is
to destroy freedom of choieu of business
in our youth, who restrain skill and tal
ent, whose purpose is despotism nnd
whose practice is tyranny of the harshest
anu most depressing character. 'Coder

iha editor cf tne "Courier," Louis

thereabouts because, in common with too

oflgrbwing less cotton and more corn.
Tmswduld fill their barns with yellow
galin, their fields with cattle and flocks

tenders at home, and give them a feeling
of independence which cannot well exist
when they have to rely upon strangers
and.speculators for their support. The
"Courier" points out that their is as much
bfiney and considerable more profit in
fewer cotton bales ; that every pound of |

The credulity on ?romau on the sub

often mistake.a common liking for a par

build up castles in the air and fill them

hopes and confiding love, and when some
startling fact destroys the visions, they
feel as if the whole creation were a blank

Senator Sawyer will soon introduce a

homesteads of two hundred acres more or
less and erect thereon such buildings as

further grants usual authority to issue
bonds, sell stock, &c, and prescribes a
manner in which its business shall be
