MILL JER. THE PRESS. WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 2,1873. Gonslp and meanings. The new redingotes are not popular with unmarried ladies. Black straw hats are worn by ladies for country equestrianism. Reseda color is more fashionable than ever this summer. No other color but blue should be worn bv a lady on a yacht. ' A Rochester man had a fit iu eight iuehes of water and it drowned him. Dry land is the proper place for fits. Young men with a disposition to “burgle” will be interested in knowing that a lull set of burglar’s tools, including revolvers and slung sliots, costs about $1000. All the chickens in the neighborhood of Long Branch are homeless; their winter quarters have been carted down to the beach and called “bathing houses.” A piece of glass an inch long was taken from the skull of a Rochester man recently, in whose head it had been imbedded for twen ty years. lie had complained occasionally of a pane in bis bead. An Iowa matron who, after languishing in the bonds of matrimony for thirty-five years, reieutly came into an unexpected inherit ance of $500 immediately invested it in a di vorce. An Atlanta physician advises patients who in these cholera times feel “upside down” to rectify that condition by standing on their heads for a minute at a time thrice a day. Which is a simple way to “heel up” their dif ficulty. “Point Russe” is the favorite summer morning work, it is so simple. A girl of the most ordinary talent can work at this and, at the same time, flirt with ease and precis ion. It is just the thing for mornings on the piazza. If a second Joshua, to-morrow, command the sun to stand still, and it obeyed him, and he, therefore, claimed credit as a miracle worker, I am at aid that I should answer: What! a miracle that the sun stands still? Not at all. I was always expecting it would. The only wonder to me ,vas its going on.— [Buskin. The plersantest thing in the world is chas ing a horse round to mount him while he steadily revolves away from you, using his fore feet as a pivot; especially if the scene is in front of a hotel piazza, whereon all the feminine inmates of the house are congre gated to gaze upon you. _ A Poughkeepsie paper says that a farmer's daughter in that vicinity lately received a hairy poodle dog from a friend in New York. The unsophisticated damsel wrote back thanking her friend for the present, and say ing that she found it very handy, when tied to a stick, to clean windows with. A family in the town of Lake, Mich., is haunted by a ghost, ard every time the spec tre comes, one of the children falls into a trance and remains so till it depart. There are familipq that U’A liana lmewTl that ought always to have such a ghost ou hand. It Is the only thing that could keep the children quiet o’ nights. Charles Reade, interviewed by Henry Wat terson of the Louisville Courier-Journal, re marked that he shouldn’t come to America, because he didn’t drink or smoke, and lie couldn’t see how he was to get along with the natives. But if he could be induced to join in the convivial chew he might do very well; and if he would be contented to discuss toe slavery question with some old Hunker he might even be perfectly happy—if he lived. “Bulling’ a Diplomat. An Irvington gentleman, who is withal something ol a diplomatist, says the Newark Advertiser, had occasion, an evening or two since, to cross a field occupied by a fine, high spirited male cow. Rightly inferring that any intrusion upon the premises would be reserted by tie occupant, the gentleman leaned upon the fence and planned a ma noeuvre. His method consisted of an ad vance into the field; a pursuit and partial retreat until the bull should gaiu considerable headway; a sudden step to one side, leaving the bull in the luich, and finally, a successful run across the lot before the ast uiished pur suer could recover himself. It was an ad mirably conceived thing. Of course the bull went for the gentleman. Then came a par tial retreat, as regular as clock wora; ihen the calculation of distance previous to the step aside. Just at this point ibe bull under cook to alter the programme, and got the whole thing mixed up fearfully. Instead of behaving as though he entertained some re gaid for diplomacy and order and clothes, be seemed to thiuk the main object in life was to toss gentlemen as far and high and vigor ously. and with as much display and as little tenderness as if the salvation of the whole bovine race depended upou his individual effqrts. The genii man descended into the adjoining field with a conviction that states manship is thrown away on bulb, and a prej udice complimentary to the efficacy ol shot guns in some particularly instances. New Orleans Thnet An Arithmetical Marvel. The Hebrew educational society school in this city, has been the scene of a very rare, if Dot wholly unexampled, performance in arithmetic. The priblem was to multiply nine by nine,and eighty-one by eighty-one,and so on, us in a each succeeding product as its own multiplier, until the operation should be performed nine times. How stupendous and discouraging the work becomes after a few steps are taken in the process, any one will find who makes the trial. For several years a handsome premium has been offered by the patron of the school just nair -d for the pupil who should first succeed in accomplishing th's feat of muitiplication At last the task was completed, and the prize, a splendid silk dreis won by Mis? Sallie E. Solomon, after a patient labor of three months. The woik comprises 262 numeral compounds and 90,000 figures, and the whole covers four or five square yards of paper. It is deserving of remark in this connection, that the boys have made le«s progress and shown less perseverance in working at this problem than the girls. How Winchester was Won.—General Sheridan has recently avowed, in an attrac tive little speech at Indianapolis, that he gained the battle of Winchester “almost en tirely” in consequence of information fur nished by the “Union” young lady. Miss Wright, of Winchester, itis great difficulty was to communicate with her. Finally he wrote her a letter on tissue paper, which be ' rolled and compressed to the size of his thumb end, and then enveloped It in tin-toil. This weighty package was then consigned to the capacious mouth of a colossal African, who had a confederate pass to sell vegetables in Winchester. He delivered the message and returned with the answer, rolled in the the same tin-foil, within two days. “She was a nice girl and true as steel.” said the Lieut enant General the other day. and he fought the battle >y her reply and won it. Miss Wrigiit is now in the Treasury Department, Washington—and Phil Sheridan is still a bachelor 1 ______ About Marshal MacMahon’s Wife.— The Paris correspondent of the London Daily Weics writes that Marshal MacMabon long hesitated to accept the Pr sidency, mainly on account of 'lie tacit allegiance ami deference alwavs shown by him lor M. Niters, and it was only the influerce ol his wife that turn ed the scales. Madame MacMahon is describ ed to he both ambitions and devout. By birth connections, and sympathy she is a royalist. Sim is very wealthy and a grand daughter ol the Due de Castris. As the pat ronist of several societies for the advance ment of the Culte de Marie she took a lead ing part In the famous Lourdes pilgrimage movement.
