[Little Rock Gazette.] The other, night a young man from northern Arkansas and a young lady from the southern part of the state met at a hotel in this city aud were married. After the ceremony the young man went out aud sit in front of the hotel while his wife went to the room assigned as the bridal chamber. "Tliis thing of geiting married is a lifetime buisness," he said, ad dressing a man who had just been divorced from his wife. "I reckon you have foiind it so," he added, turning to a single man. "Wall, I reckon I'll go up. Dinged if I don't sorter hate to go ' tip thar. But I never was afeerd of a man, and I don't see why I should be afeerd ,of a woman." He went np and wrapped at the door. "Who is there?" demanded the girl. "IPs me." "Who is me!" "Don't you recognize my talk, honey?" "No, J dou.t." "It is your own wide-awake and living hn*baud.~ Let me in." "Go away from that door; you shall not come in here. I am not acquainted with you yet." "Bay, let me in. Them fellers down stairs are laughing at me. Open the door, for I'm sleepy," and he yawned like a man waiting for a night train. "Thought you said that you were wide awake." "i was a while ago, hut I'm powerful sleepy now. Say, ain't you going to open this door?" "No, I ain't." "Why did you marry met" "'Cause 1 wanted to." "Wall, wily don't you letmeiut" "Cause I don't want to," "All right, old gal. I'll shall out for home and leave you to pay the hotel hill. I never seed the woman that could puli the wool over my eyes." The latch clicked and the door opened. The hotel hilt had fright ened her. "It won't do for a woman to buck agin me, Jemmy tell you, for I was raised at tire crossroads and w r ent to mill earl; Happy Hours. An actuate observer says: Man kind are always happier for having been happy; so tliat if you make them happy now, you make them happy twelve years henee by tire memory of it. A childhood passed away with a mixture of rational indujgeppe, underi fond and wise parents, diffuses over the whole of life a feeling of calm pleasure; and, in extreme old age, is the last re membrance which time can erase from the mind of man. No enjoy ment, however inconsiderable, is couljned to the present moment. A man is the happier for life for having made once an agreeable tour, or lived for any length of time with plousent people, or en joyed any considerable interval of innocent pleasure, which contrib utes to render old men so inatten tive to the scene before them, aud carries them back to a world that is past, and to scenes never to he renewed aga in. __ They bad been at masquerade; she recognized him at once. "Was it the loud beating of y$ur heart, my darling, that told you I was near?" murmured he, "Oh, no," she replied, "1 recognized your crook ed legs." A French physician says tobacco smoking colors the boucs.. Not when in the form of cigarettes, as the smoker is green at the start, and no change results from the continued use of tobacco in tliis I form. a j 1 ! | I I i Tapping Vesuvius for Oil. [Harrisburg Telegraph.] It lifts been reserved for an Ital ian citizen of Harrisburg, now per fectly Americanized, and therefore imbued with the Yankee genius, to conceive the idea of boring at the side of Vesuvius to ascertain the source of its volcanic fires, aud utilize the tremendous power which has for ages produced this amazing eruption by fire, smoke, and great streams of lava. Angelo Posai Pouti is the name of the gen tleman who has devoted a long time to this subject, and who has now come to the conclusion, after a study of the peculiar phases of the petroleum region of Pennsylva nia, that the causes of the volcanic forces in Vesuvius are the same as those which produce the gases in the oil region, only that those of the volcano are the greater and more powerful in tlieir character. His idea is to have a shaft on the laud side of the mountain, or- a number of them, and by that means reach the bed or beds of oil which he argues flow into a gro'at basin immediately under the crater of the volcano, and thus, by currents of electricity, are made to bnrnj and overflow in great Hoods of lava. By means of the shafts in question, Angelo Possi Pouti ! hopes to attract the oil from the ; source of its flames, thereby pro-1 venting eruptions aud utilizing for mechanical purposes the vast ac cumulation of oil which lias for ages been consumed in the crater. This is a tremendous project, in the pursuit of which the inventive Italian believes the source of earthquakes will be reached and controlled, whereby the human race will be shielded from that engine of destruction that has produced such enormous amounts of loss to mankind. This gives the affair a philanthropic phase highly creditable to the humane feelings of the generous Italian. Arrangements for a stock com pany liave been made to take out a charter with a capital stock of #500,000. Mr. Angelo Possi Pouti has been in consultation for some time with a number of geologists and civil engineers in this city, who, while not able fully to grasp the tremendous subject, still give its projector much encouragement. It is as possible as the Panama Canal, for which #50,000,000 1ms been subscribed, or the excava tions at Pompeii and the search for the wonders of Troy, the dis coveries of which have astounded the arciueolngists of the world. A Selfish Editor. The most short-sighted, selfish editor we know oflivesin Missouri. He talks in this way: A doctor will sit down and write; time, five seconds; paper and ink one fourth of a cent, and t lie patient pays one, two, three, five orten dollars, as the ease may he. A lawyer writes ten or twenty words of advice and gets from ten to twenty from his client. An editor writes a half column puff for a man, pays a man a dollar for putting R > u type, prints it on several dollars worth of paper, sends it to several thou sand people, and then surprises the puffed man if he makes any charge.-—[Exchange. Temperance Item: First gcutlç niaii with nasal flush—"1 tell you, sir, it's this drinking in business hours that's ruinin' our populace. Why, see me. I ain't drunk in bus iness hours in twcuty years. I re member the date because 1 retired permanently from commercial life in 1361, and that kinder fixed it in iny memory." We presume that Arsène Hous sage referred to talk, wheu be said: "Wpiuen always give mure than they receive." ! ; Facts About Women. Moslem ladies can scarcely bo said to have much liberty. By or der of the Sultan and following a formal request of the "Sheikhul Islam," the Ministry of Police, act ing in concert with the Council of State, has drawn up a code of rules prescribing the dress which wo men of the Moslem faith are to wqar, and this general meaner in which they are to conduct them selves. According to these laws, women are prohibited from appear ing in public places and frequented streets wearing only the "tchar sliaf," a narrow veil. They are only allowed to wear this light covering while walking on quiet roads and in paying friendly visits. The officers of police have strict orders to watch the women closely and to report whenever they ob serve one daring to appear in the thin veil under circumstances not sanctioned l>y the regulations. Their report must give the full name and address of the offending lady, and the particulars of the breach of rale, aud is submitted to the Minister of Police. Mussul man. ladies are also forbidden from driving or walking round the ma jority of the thoroughfares and the centres of interest. They are not allowed to promenade in the Great Bazaar, nor to sit down in the shops. In the event of any of these rules being broken, if the of fenders are "carriage people," the drivers of the vehicles are held responsible as well as the ladies. If a party of women gather in a group for a friendly chat they are at once dispersed by an officer of the law, who addresses himself to the oldest lady in the couipauy, and at onoô puts an end to the gossip. The men, too, are under certain restrictions, liujes are set down for their behavior to women,, and any que who should be so iu discreet as to speak to a woman, is punishable, under an article in the criminal code. A Sleeping Tree. . • A tree, was lately brought from Australia to Navada, has been in the habit of going to roost like the chickens. The leaves fold together and the end of the tender twigs coil themselves up like the tail of a well conditioned pig. After one of the twigs has been stroked or handled, the leaves move uneasily and are in a sort of wild commo tion for a minute or more. Indig nant at having been transplanted the other day, it had hardly been placed iu its pow quarters before the leaves began to stand up like the hair ou the tail of an angry cat, and soon the plant was in a quiver, it gave a most pungent odor, which was so scikeiiingthatit was found necessary to open the doors aud windows. It was fully an hour be fore the plant calmed down, It probably would not have given up the fight, even then, hud it not been time for going to roost. The whole household now stands in awe pf that tree. Charity is the winter angel of the world, and about the only one that stayed behind to keep Hupe com pany, when they moved on that sad first of May, from Eden back -to Heaven, llqt it ever any body» human qf divine, was slandered and belied, it is Charity. Her ap propriate altar is not a hat lined with a bandanna, to muffle the fail of coin, but the open, empty palm of Poverty, the cold and brokeu heart of Want—these are the con aeerated places where accepted offerings should be laid. There »re said to bo 2750 lan guages. Could we command them all, we could lack (eau essay on the subject of "The Conteinptibility of the Masher." Iu that case we might, possibly, do him tastier.
