Then smelt her stnollluK-ialts and Rlept.

Ho swims a pistol on each hip.
Ho Kitthci cd up a preai ox whip
And diot e towaid tho Retting sun.
He croed tho great back bono of earth
He paw tho snowy mountains rolled
I.lko mlRhty billows; saw tho gold
Of awful sunsets; sawthoblitn
Of widen dawn upon tho plain.
And c ery nljrbt would William Brown

The sweetest flowers I hate found

Of 0110 poor cmcd Af-rl-can,
Than win the eyes of every man

At last she nursed a now dehe,

Then stiried his coektidJ -mind and rouna

And told, -'He's hauded in his checks."
Then care fed on ber damaged cheek,
And she grew faint did gallus June,
And smelt ber smelling talis In v aln.
Bho wandered on weary, worn and weak,
At Inst upon a bill alone
She came, and thcio she sat her down;
For on that hill there stood a stone,
And, lol that stone read, "William Drown."
"O. William Brownl O. William Brownl
And here jou ret at last," she said,
"With this lone htone above your head.
And forty miles from any townl
I will plant cvprc trees. I will.
And 1 whl build u fenco aiound.
And I will fertlllzo tho ground
With tears enough to turn n mill."
She went and got a hire! mnn.
She brought him forty miles from town,
And In tho tall grass squatted ilo.ui
And bado him build as she should plan.
Jint sai ago cow-boys with their bands
They saw, and hurriedly they ran
And told a benrded cattle mnn
JJomebody bullded on his lands,
(lie took bis rifle from tho rack,
1 Ho girt himself In battle pelt.
Ho stuck two pistols In bis liMt
.And, mounting on bis horse's back,
lie plunged ahead. But when they shewed
A wornnn fair, about his eves
Ho tulled his hat, and ho llkcwiso
PulIe3 at his beard and chewed and chowod.
(At Inst bo gat him down and spake:
"O, lady dear, what do j ou hero"
"1 build a tomb unto my dear,
,1 plant sweet flowers for Lis sako."
jTno bearded man threw his two bunds
1 Abov e his bead, then brought them dowa
And cried, "Ob, I am William Brown,
And this Is tho coruer-stoiio of my lands t"
Her specs fell off. her head fell back.
Just like somo lifted tea-pot lid;
She screamed, this Rncleut maiden did,
And, fainting, spilt herself, in fact,
Klght in the beard of William Brown,
Then all tho Indians wero amazed;
Thcy-tr-micnt this germo intitdeu oriuad,
And circling round they squatted down.
But William was n gentle man;
Ho bado two Indians call tho priest,
Ho bado two moro prepaio a feast,
Then led ber, blushing, by the hand
X.lko somo sweot maiden In sweet May
He wa9 so good, he was so true.
He did not know what elsoto do.
But led her round and round all day.
At last tbn priest, on spotted maro
Who galloped forty miles or moro.
Ho found them in the grasses soro
And married the m tight thin nnd there

A London cot respondent pushed his

"No, I can not say that I did. I seem

"Oh, I don't know why that should

Two New Oilcans gentlemen thi

Monster again subsided, huge back

l"0trioity not a Form of Magietism.
Professor Hughes has recently art
ijtnced views about magnetism which
'f accepted, will largely modifj the po
sition which science assigns to this
property. He asserts that where thete
is no appaitMit magnetism, or the mag
netism is neutral, there is not as hid
beon supposed, an inditlerent turning
of the molecules in all directions, witn
consentient balancing of influence, but.
on the' contrary, there is a perfect s ra
metrical arrangement, the molecule
(or their polarities) arranging them
selves so as to satisfy their mutual at
traction by tne shortest path, and thus
form a completo closed circuit of attrac
tion. When magnetism becomes evi
dent, the molecules (or their polarities)
have all rotated symmetrically in a
given direction, but the symmetry- of
uirnngcment is such that the circles 0
attraction are not completed except
through an external armaturo joiniug
both poles. Again, ho shows that we
have permanent magnetism when the
molecular rigidity retains the molecules
or their polaiities, in a given direction,
and transient magnetism whenever the
raoliuulos are comparatively freo. Pro
fessor Hughes also shows" that tho in
herent polarity or magnetism of each
moleoulo is, like giavity, a constant
quantity which can neither be generated
nor augmented nor diminished nor de
stroyed. Neither can magnetism bo
changed to any other form of f 01 co or
property of matter. It must be, there
fore, dissociated from electricity, as
ecrtainly as gravitation must be ilisso
elated from heat a.nd light. Electricitj
may bo cenerated by magnetism justa'
light and hea'(as is the case of the sun)
niy be generated by gravitation; but
electricity is not a form of inagnotisre
my more than neat or iig it is a formci
ravity Con'iinpnra 1 Rcviw.

So plentiful and cheap is natural gas

Recently a curious incident happened
fo tho Belgian lion which surmounts

of Wateiloo. Somo Ficuch soldiers

tail of tho lion with their swords. Of
course, tho French Foreign Minister
had to apologis-o for tho act, but, all

had to buy Mr. Lion t new tail and

During my residence there, says the
"Autobiography of Thurlow Weed,"
Mr. Wattles ami fiintly moved into the
neighborhood. He came, I think, from
what was then called tho "Triangle,"
Bomewhcro in Cheinngo County, and
was a sub-land aent. Thoy were, for
that region, rather stylish people, and
became, the subjects of 1 good deal of
retnirk; one thing that excited especial
indignation was, that persons going to
the botiso weto asked to clean tneir
shoes at the door, a scraper having been
placed theie for that purpose.
