How They Slipped.
[Detroit Free Press.]
At eleven o'clock yesterday fore
noon a couple of excursionists took
«eats on the east portico of the
City Hall, difeetly under the win
dow of the chief of Police. He
was a bean-pole looking chap of
twenty-three, with dust an inch
deep on his back, and she was an
auburn-haired angel of twenty,
wearing a solid shoe, and chewing
three quids of gum rolled into one.
For a long time they sat and look
ed at the fountains and sighed and
were silent. Then he trtnderly
queried:
"Hanner, isn't it dreamy!"
"Yum," she answered.
"I could sit here forever," he
whispered.
"I don't believe I could—I'd be
hungry."
More silence and sighs, and then
he took her elbow in his hand and
said:
"Hanner, I'm hungry now."
"Didn't yon bring a biscuit
'along!"
"Hungry for your love, Hanner
—not for biscuits. Hanner, 'spo
seu we 'sposen a case."
"Well!"
" 'Sposen I knew a Justice of the
Peace who would marry us!"
"How much!"
"Two dollars."
"Have you got the money!"
"Hanner, do you doubt my love!
I've got seventy-five cents, and
I'll hunt up the Harker boys and
borrow the rest."
"I'm afraid."
"Now, Hanner."
"Oh, I can't; you know my folks
don't like you."
"Hanner, hitch this way till I
talk to you. 'Sposen I bought you
peanuts and candy and watermel
oub! 'Sposen you reali/.ed my great
love, and concluded to hitch to me
before some other girl captured
the prise! We'd geutly slip down
these steps, turn the corner of this
stately edifice, walk to the shop of
a justice, and you'd have me and
I'd have you."
"Oh dear, but pa would rave,"
"Hold on, Hanner. Your par
needn't know it—no one will know
it. We'd keep it as silent as the
I grave until 1 had made your old
man respect pie for what I are.
i Giuiute half a show, and I'll make
j your par fuller me round like a
calf within a year, and your mar
will fairly love the ground I walk
on. Gotne, Hanner, let's slip."
"Oh, Oawge!"
"Haulier—Hanner! Think of the
romance—the love—the mystery—
the tenderness—the gold watches,
and diamond rings, and silk
dresses."
"Where!"
"Why, next year, when wool
comes oft. Don't I own forty acres
of land! Don't I dote on you!
Would I ask you to slip around if
I did't love you above the best
boss iu our county. Hanner let
us slip."
"And you really love—"
Then they slipped.
They caught sight of a six-foot
farmer coming up the walk, with
a big cane ou one arm and his wife
ou the other, and the girl slid for
Michigan avenue apd the lover for
Griswold street, the latter whis
pering to himself, us he dodged
through the City Rail :
"That's her old dad, and he
knocks oxen down with that club.
Ah exchange say« : "A man lives
iH this vicinity who states that he
first met his wife iu a storm, took
her to the first bail in a storm, pop
ped the question in a storm, aud
has lived in a storm oyer since."
That must have been Mr. and Mrs.
Gy Cl one.
"I've an idea," hs exclaimed as
he briskly stepped into the saue

A RACE WITH A TORRE.M.
How a Train Crossed a Bridge Just
in the Mck of Tine.
[El Paso (Texas) Times ]
Saturday last a terrible rain
storm visited the section just above
Albuquerque, and the arroyas and
creeks were suddenly filled with a
large volume of water, which raced
down in the shape of a huge wave
four to six feet high. The south
bound passenger train on the San
ta Fe was booming along in the
midst of the storm and was ap
proaching the long bridge just be
low Wallace when the engineer ob
served the huge wave rushing and
roaring in the large arroya along
which the track runs for some dis
tance before it crosses the bridge.
The engineer appreciated the ter
rible force of the torrent and also
knew that when it reached the
long bridge the structure would
be swept away like a straw. They
were both at a furious pace, but
the torrent rolled swifter than the
express train and threatened to
reach the bridge before the latter.
The passengers were aware of the
mighty race in progress and the
wildest excitement prevailed on
board. Just as it seemed a losiug
game for the express train and the
engineer was prepared to slacken
speed a curve showed ahead just
approaching the bridge, iu which
the train held the inside track by
100 feet. With unchecked rein
and urged by a fiery energy, the
iron horse quivered with new liope
and dashing around the short curve
leaped upon aud across the bridge
just as the defeated element reach
ed the structure. Within a second
after the train passed over the
bridge was borne away on the tor
rent's crest and a gap of 1000 feet
was made in the roadway.
Drowning n Chinese Hidow.
[From thu North Chinn Ituvinw.j
On the evening of the 30th of
June, while the steamer Peking
was lying alongside the hulk at
Hankow, the ofticerB witnessed an
attempt to drowu a woman from a
Hampati, close to the landing steps,
on the part of two men, one of
whom was seen to push her into
the water. Mr. Morguu, of the
custom service, who saw the oc-
currence from the shore, ran down
the steps and rescued the woman
the water there being only about
six feet deep. When he pulled her
out of the water it was found that
her hands i were tied behind her,
and that a large stone was fastened
around her neck. Hhe said to her
rescuer, ''Maskee, more better 1
die 1" When she recovered from
the effects of her bath she went
home. At 4:3« the next day she
was "suocessfuily" drowned by
her two tqothers-in-luw, the men
whose attempt had been frustrated
on the previous day. They took
her out this time into the middle
of the river, and, having attached
a line to her waist» as well as pin
ioued luu arms and fixed a stone
around her neck, they pushed her
into the water as before. After
life was extinct they pulled the
hotly up by the line around the
waist, took it ashore and buried it
with the usual funeral rites. The
crime of the deceased was stated
to bp that "she refused to marry
an old man ; she, being a line,
blooming widow, wanted some-
thing better." The details of the
actual murder were given to Mr.
Morgan by some Chinese who wit-
nessed both events, aud the mur-
derers themselves told him that it
would have Jieen better if be had
not interfered with the first at-
tempt.

Prc-Hlst«fffc Arizona.
[Prescott Miner.]
Right here where Prescott now
stands can be traced the walls of
an ancient city, and if we %re tot
judge from the wearing down of
mountains and the covering of
earth that has always hidden the
buildings from being traced, we
should say that many thousands of
years have passed and gone since
the people who once inhabited a
prosperous city where now stands
Prescott, the most beautiful village
in Arizona, took their departure
or became extinct. That a large
and flourishing erty once existed
here, there cast he no doubt, as the
evidences are proof positive, and
defy contradiction. Very often
relics are taken from excavations
of great depth, and we are inclined
to believe that the former inhabit
ants of Arizona were a curious but
a somewhat civilized race. Again,
the geologist and antiquarians
have a rich field for study in Ari
zona, for go where you may you
are continually treading on the
homes and graves of a race of
whom nothing is known, other
than that they lived in houses and
had large buildings of worship.
A Rattler of a Match.
[Virginia (Nev.) Enterprise.]
A man of Gapt. Guttle build and
general tone was yesterday at
work in front of the regulator *t
Frederick's jewelry store with »
old silver watch of warming-pan
dimensions. As he turned the
hands of his watch about with a
big brass key, a gentleman said to
him iu a jokiug way : "That's aine,
healtby-looking watch you've got
there, Commodore." "Well, yes,"
said the owner of the watch, "I
don't know that she keeps any
better time than this here big oioek,
with all tlyt hands and flxins to R,
but she keeps more ef it. She'll a
rattler to go. You H«e me setliu'
of her now, and givin' of her an
even start with the big olook ; well,
now, before that big old bumaier
up there on the wall has waded
through twelve hours she will spiu
off from fourteen to sixteen, just
as she happens to be in the humor.
Hhe ain't handsome, but I tell you
she's just a rattler to go,"
The Human Figure.
The proportions pf the human
figure are strictly matAttuaatiuaL
The whole figure is six times the
length of die foot. Whether the
form be slender or plump, the rule
holds good and deviation from it
is a departure from the highest
beauty iu proportion. The Greek«
made all their statues according to
this rule, The taee, from the high
est point of the forehead, where
the hair begins, to the «hin, is 1-1®
of the whole structure. The hand,
from the wrist to the tip of the
middle finger, is the same. From
the top of the chest to the highest
point in the forehead is a seventh.
If tlie length of the taee from the
roots of the hair to the obin, be
divided into equal parts, the first
division determines the plaoe
where the eyebrows meet, and the
second tlie place of the nostrils
The height, fr om the feet to the
top of the Iicgd is the same as the
extremity of the fingers when the
arms are extended,
