Then the night grew dark and awful; On his brow the dew tell fast. He gasped at the fatal forget fulness “She's discovered ail at last. The tender eyes grew blacker, out a fiery flash; She spake: "I'm onto you, mister; I’m onto the accent on cash. “Yon giddy, cruel deceiver, 1 would scorn to be your mate; You're getting it dead straight, young feller; I’m a gurl, but I’m up to date. “So you take that castle in England, With your title of English earl.

A clergyman well known to Buffalo peo ple says that when the Lord made him he forgot to put any pegs in his mind on which to bang the names of acquaintances. He can remember faces, but not names. He became pastor of a large church a few months ago, and after discharging his duties long enough to know his sheep by right, he was visited one evening by a lady whom he knew well, but whose name he could net, for the life of him, recall. Wish ing to be reminded of it without exposing his ignorance, he said: “Let me see, ah—how do you spell your name?” To which she replied, with reproachful dignity: “Sro-i-t-h.” Fora moment the clergyman was floored, but he rallied quickly and escaped rebuke by rejoining: “Oh. then you don't spell it with a y?”— Buffalo Courier.
