Gossip and Gleanings. “Glorios, like glow-worms afar off, shine bright; Bat looked to near bave neither heat nor light.” It is said that in the making up of costumes three shades of a color will be very fashiona ble. _ A Western paper speaks of a “maternal grandmother.” Does it know of any other kind ? « A Georgia paper has. for its motto: “It is not rank, nor birth, nor state, but get up and get that makes men great.” Gloves, as they go up in price, increase in buttons. Dame Fashion tells us that five, six, and eight buttons are worn. “Now Johnnie,” says grandma, “I want you to sit as still as a mouse.” “Mouses don’t sit still, grandma.” Sure enough. • 1 New Orleans people sit on their porches, dressed in Summer attire, these evenings. We could do it here it we chose. A Kansas crowd lynched an Eastern man the other day, but finding that they had made a mistake they sent the body home in a very nice coffin. It is a rule of etiquette in Arkansas tbat no true gentleman will eat, with his leg thro wn over the back of his neighbor’s chair it he can help it. A new style of boys’ trowsers has been in vented in Boston, with a copper seat, sheet iron kuees, riveted down the seams, and water-proof pockets to hold broken eggs. As “ the boy is father to the man,” so is the girl mother to the woman; and hence tbe first thing she learns to do well with her doll, is to spank it. It costs a dollar a year to keep a chicken. That is, it costs the man who owns it that much, but the next-door neighbor who has a garden, hasn’t made his estimate yet. We have had almost every shape of para sols, and now we are informed they are to be flat, a la Japanese, and so inexpensive tbat numbers can be owned, to match every cos tume. Hamburg lace and machine embroidery are used exclusively for trimming white dresses and underclothing, instead oi the magic or Cov entry ruffling, so much in vogue for the past eight years. A little gitl asked a minister, “Do you think my father will go to heaven ?” Why yes my child. Why do you ask?” “Well, because if he don’t have his own way there, he wont stay long I was thinking.” It is vain to put your finger in the water and, pulling it out, look for a hole; and equal ly vain to suppose that, however large a space you oocupy, the world will miss you when you die. _ The pupils of a girls’ school in Pittsburg, out for their daily promenade, were retently mistaken for an approaching band of tem perance reformers, and their appearance was the signal for a general closing up of the sa loons. The purest and most beautiful type of pa tience is that suddenly displayed by a young man in a great hurry to purchase a postage stamp, who finds his passage to the window blocked up by a pretty girl, leisurely hunting through her clothes for a three-cent piece. A mud-hole in Bennington, Nebraska, is so deeo that small children are often lost in it, andaloaal paper says: “We don't care anything about it, ’ cause our folks ure ju.t out of cbildrcu but for the sake ofoursut fering neighbors we call attention to the matter.” ___ A young man having put a crown piece into “the plate” in an Edinburgh church by mistake instead of a penny, asked to have it hack, hut was refused. In once, in for ever. “Aweel, rjweel,” grented he; “I will get credit for it in heaven.” “Na. na, said Jeems, the doorkeeper, “ye’ll get credit only for the penny ye meant to gi’e.” Josh Billings’s Sprice-box.—The dog that will phollow every hotly aint worth a kuss.

Me an’ the Kurnel used lobe toy, together, an we wuz as thicn as five kittens in a rag basket. We drunk outen tbe samu goad, an’ we got the lint snatched outen us by tbe same bandy-legged school teacher. I wuz gittiu as lotesom 1 as a rain-crow, afore I struck up with the Kurnel, an’ I wuz glad to see bitn—durned glad. We knocked roun’ town right smarlually, an’ the Kurnel inter iuced me to a whole raft of fellers—mighty nice boys they were too. Arter supper the Kurnel says: •‘Skaggs,’’ says he, “less go to my room ■'bar we kin talk over ole times sorter com fortable an’ ondisturbed like.” “Greeable,” says I, an’ we walked a square >r so. an’ turned into a alley an’ walked up a larrer par of stars. The Kurnel gin a little rap at a green door, an’ a slick lookin’ merlat ter popped out an axed us in. He wuz the ilurndest purlitest nigger you ever seen. He |es’. get up an’ spun aroun’ like a tom cat with her tail afire. The room wuz as fine as a fiddle an’ full ot picturs an’ solys, an’ tbe cheers wuz as saft as lam’s woo!, an’ I thought to meself that the Kuruel wuza lugs urantcuss.

I can’t make no head nor tail outen it.” “I’ll bat I kin qmnage it,” savs Judge Hightower, quite animated like. “I’ll show you how, Jedge, with pleasure,” says the Kurnel, and then he went to a table unlocked a box au’ tuck out a deck of keerds an’ a whole lot of little what you may callenis similarly to horn buttons, some white an’ tome red.” Squii e Skaggs paused and supplied his lireless jaws with a fresh quid of tobaceo. “It aiu’t no use to tell you any more. tVhen them lellars got done lamin’ me that •ame I didn't have money enough to take ne down stairs. I lay I looked a leetle wild, or when the Jedge closed the box he said: “We hev had a pleasant evenin’, Squire. You’ll find the Kurnel waitin’ for you on ;be steps, and he'll give you youi money back.” “I ain’t never laid eyes on the Kurnel sence. an’ when I do that s goin’ to be a case for the Kunner—you mind my words.

If there are any people who think that ar tificial eyes are of recen* invention, let them undeceive themselves, for the ancient Egyp tians. Romans and Venetians, centuries ago, used this means of covering up the ravages ot decease or the blemish of injury.' Glass eyes have been found iD the beads of mummies, staring with an unearthly light. In olden times solid glass eyes were used in some cases but the artificial eye of later days is of a shell like formation, and in its cons ruction re markably nicety lias been attained. So per fect has the imitation of the natural organ become that optists are sometimes deceived themselves, and cases are cited where one or the other of married couples has had a glass eye unbeknown to the respective sharer of tils or her domestic joys and sorrows through years ol matrimonial uii'cd. An artificial eye not only covers up disfigurement, but it strengthens ilie unimpaiied orgau by acting as a screen and preventing irritation ot the maimed eye, with which the healthy one is in such direct sympathy. One would be sur prised to learn >4 the large number ot people who carry these glassy deceptions in thetr heads. At any rate, the trade seems to he a thriving oue. A glass eye well made will last a twelvemonth sometimes longer; but gener ally after a year’s wear the eye offends, at d the wearer is forced to pluck it out. This la owing to the action ol tbe secretions upon tbe material of which the artificial eye is made, a roughness being produced on tbe inner surface which causes irritation and it this iriitionbe allowed, to increase, the result is what is called a ‘‘fun gus growth.” It has been found expedient on the part ot wearers of artificial eyes to re move the eye at night, therebvjsecuiing bene fit to the impaired organ. In the manufacture of aititicial human eyes, Paris for a IcDg time bad the monopoly, and tbe makers adbered to a stereotyped method of manufacturing tbe eyes to patterns, of which the number of graded sizes was about one hundred and for ty. More recently gieat improvements have been made in mateiial, colcr etc., and the sizes are mathematically cwricct, according to measu.ements taken in individual cases. Tbe idea that the introduction of such a foreign body as a glass eye into the ocular cavity must necessarily be a painful one, is incor rect. The extreme sensitiveness of the liv ingeye is liiuited.to the transparent comer,and as this membrane is almost always destroyed at the same time that the ball becomes disor ganized, tl e entire sensitiveness disappears with it. _ An Encounter witii a Gorilla.—He was about twenty yards off when we first saw him. We at once gathered together; and I was about to take aim and bring him down where he stood, when Malaouen stop ped me, saying in a whisper, “Not time yet.” We stood, therefore, in silence, gun in hand. The gorilla looked at us for a minute or so out of his evil gray eyes, then beat hi* breast with his gigantic arms—aud what arms he had! then he gave another howl of defiance, and advanced upon us. How hor rible he looked! 1 shall never forge i it. Again he stopped, not more than fifteen yatds away. Still Malaouen said “n >t yet.” Good gracious 1 what is to become of us if our guns miss fire, or if we only wound the buge beast! Again the gotilla ma.eaii advance upon us, Now be was not twelve yards off. I could see plainly his leroci< us face. It waa distorted with rage; bis huge teeth were ground against each other, so that we could bear the sound; the skin of ibe forehead waa drawn forward and back rapidly, which made his hair move up and down, and pave a tiuly dovelish expression to the hideous face. Once more he gave out a roar which seemed to shake the 'woods like thunder; L could really leel the earth trembling under my feet, Tha gorilla, looking us in the eyes, aud beating his breast, advanced ogain. “Don't fire too soon,” said Malaouen; “if you do not kill him he will kill you.” This time he came within eight yards df us before he stopped. 1 was breathing last with ezc.tement as I watched the huge beast. Malaouen said only “ste: dy,” as the gorilla came up. Then he stopped. Malaouen said “now!” and belcre he could uiter the roar for which he was opening his mouth three musket balls were in his body. He fell dead almost without a struggle. He was a monstrous beast indeed, though not among the tallest. His height was five feet six inches. His arms had a spread ot seven feet two inches. His broad, brawn* chest measured fifty inches round. 1 'S toe of his foot measured five inches and thiee quarters in circumfeience. Hu •n*“.*e.e like immense bunches of muse ’fi|. , his legs and claw-like feet were so well fitted for grabbing aid folding, nbi»J t<> £}lleve tha" their animals, when they couceal them „i..»I in trees and watch for prey, can seize ® I*!JSup with their fcet any living thing, lcnrard. os, or man. that passes beneath. The face of this gorilla was intense!' b’ack. The vast chest, which proved his great power, was bare, and c veied whh parchment like skin. His body was covered with gray hair. While the animal approached in its fieice way, walking on its hind legs, and lacing us as few animals dare face man, it really se»m ed to me to be a horrible lieness of man. — [••Stories of the Gorilla Country,” by 1’aul ‘ Du Cbaillu.]
