I Wish He'd Mako ?p+Iis Mind.
1 w!sb lie-would intake Up his mind, mu,
For 1 don't care much longer to wait,
I'm sure J have hinted quito strongly
That 1 thought of changing ji\y state;
For a sweetheart he's too backward,
I can't bring him out, thougli 1 tr3*;
I own ihat he's very good tempered,
lint then he's so dreadlully slay !
When I speak about love and a cottage,
Jle gives me a look of surprise;
Amt ii 1 but hint at a marriage;
Ho blushes quite up to his eyes;
1 can't make him jealous?I've tried it?
And 'tis no list? my being unkind.
For ttutt's not the way 1 am certain,
To get him to make up his mind
I've sung him love sonnets hy dozens.
I've worked him slippers and hose.
Ami we've walked by moonlight together
Tct he never attempts to propose!
Yon must really ask his intention.
Or some other beau 1 must find;
For indeed 1 won't tarry much longer
For one who can't make up his mind.
Jhe Alabama Verdict.
The bottomless Weaver, who is nt
present engaged in being the candi
date for president of that?in the lan
guage of a deceased distinguished
the greenback: labor party, was proba
bly subjected to a severe shock yes
terday. By a mysterious and ponder
ous process of reasoning he evolved
from the vast and profound depths of
his inner consciousness an idea. It
was that the abstraction abovo aliud
cd to which he represents, would be
victorious in the election in the state
of Alabama, and he triumphantly pro
claimed two or threo weeks ago that
Jin was going there to sec'and conquer.
Weaver prided himself on Alabama.
The teachings of his "party had been
widely inculcated into, and absorbed
by the eager, populace, nnd'hc, would
either obtain a majority of the vote
cast or scare the democrats so badhj
that they would be completely de
moralized by the time of the general
election. D#a* before yesterday Ala
bama spoke, and Weaver doubtless
heaid her vioce. ? His own party, the
independents and the republicans, are
crushed and buried by a democratic
majority of fifty thousand ! What
has become of Weaver and the.-'green
backers now? If a state they expect
ed to win in defeated their combina
tion (tho strongest they could possi
bly make) by fifty thuusand, what
will South Carolinado with.them?
According to the old song, "Will,
the Weaver" was currently repotted
to be "a gay deceiver," but the Wea
Yer at present under Consideration,
seems to confine his decpMirjfiJ?} Cntjre.

A Sad Tale.
'Flic Bennett family moved in the
most fashionable ?ocjety in Cincin
nati ten years ago; Tho father was
the western manager for several life
insurance companies, was worth about
a milljon dollars, and bad a princely
residence &t Clifton, a suburb of-the
city. His wife was a brilliant beau
ty, and the enter' uinmcnts over
which she presided were notably fine.
His daughter, Blanche, carefully rear
ed and aducated, witty and pretty,
was the light of the lpmsp. A son
was the remaining member'of the
family. Tho first change in tho house
hold wa3 the elopement of the wife.
She went to Chicago, where sho died
in disgrace. The son fell among bad
associates, and finally went to prison
for stealing. In St. Louis, a few
days ago, a ragged, rum-crazed wo
man was arrested. This was Blanche
Bennett. Tho heartbroken father,
having lost his fortune, is a clerk in a
wettern insuranco agency.

How Watches are Made.
IT will ho apparent to any one who will
examine a Solid Gold Watch, that
aside from the necessary thickness for
engraving and polishing, a lurgc propor
tion of the precious metal used, is need
ed only to stiffen and hold the engraved
portions in piace, and supply the neces
sary solidity and strength. The surplus
gold Is actually needless so far us utili
ty nnd beauty are concerned. In .1 AMES
no^s' paten rcior.d watuii casks
this waste of precious metal Is overcome,
and the samk solidity am? stkknotii

of the usual cost of solid eases. Tho pro
