"Confound ihe luck!"- exclaimed Brigg-s, a middle-aged gentleman .vim bnnsts of Detroit as his legal evidence. The exclamation escaped ini as he stood on Broadway at the ^otor street entrance to the elevated ilrnad station. 'Whsit'a the matter, doctor?" asked i friend who chanced to overhear the cmark. Mattor?" growled the doctor. "Matter? Why. here I am down town vithonly a two dollar madian bill irmr pocket, and TcaVt pass it any .vhcre and I've had all manner of rorh'o with it the last hour." -But what are you doing with 0 ia la money here in the States?" "Why, you .see, up in Detroit and fJnll'alo, and those places along the howlin*, Canada money passes as freely i- National bank bills silver certifi ates. and a person never thinks of re cusing it. This morning I started lown town with oney e.nonshtopay iomo bills, and. as I supposed, enough .o can-y me through the day. But an liourago 1 found myself with just this iwo-dollarCanada bill. I staried up town, and handed it in at the elevated nation for my ticket. 'That's no rond, yelled the ticket-seller, and it .lawned upon me that I would have to et it changed before I could get up to the hotel. I went into an Italian's eigar store and bought fif.y cents' worth of cigars and handed out the bill. 4I 'Ucr. no ika iliac moony,' said the cigar man as he pushed th bill b:ick and reached for the cigars that still lay on the counter. I tried to explain to him that it was good money but all he would sav was, *I donna care, I no taka.' I bought live papers from a newsboy and lo'.d him to run and get the bill changed, and I'd give him a quarter. The gamin took one glance a it and Indd it out a* if he was poisoned. 'Yer can't shove none ov er queer on me,' he said 'do yer tink 1 want to be pulled?' I tried to pass it at drug stove where I purchased a dol lar's worth of stuff that I did not want, but tiiey would not have it. 1 tried a restaurant, a saloon. anA a gentle men's furnishing store but in each place 1 was regarded as a suspicions eharaclur when I handed out the bill. And hero I am, stranded and all but branded." His friend laughed at the doctor's trouble and suggested that they step into a Wall olivet banker's office and ?"e, what could be done. A moment later they stood before the banker's counter. "What is Canada money worth?" timidly inquired the doctor. "Do you want to buy or sell?" was the guarded response. "To sell," replied the doctor. "We are paying 99J," sad the banker. "Ninety-nine and a half on the dol lar! Well, give me $1 99 quick and ilie doctor threw down the bill as he Cave a sigh of relief. "I hope never loseea Canada bill again," he ex laimed, as ho pocketed the proceeds f his ox.'lmn'j'G. and hus'led his friend ut to make a purchase for two around lie corner.AT Y. Commercial Adver- An Extraordinary Suggestion. Edward WVs on. the electrician, says: "It is well known that, the nitrate of amyl possesses the power of causing insensibility very quickly in a human being breathing its fume*. The effect is equivalent temporarily to a paralytic stroke. Now, nitrate of amyl is very cheap and plentiful. 1 propose to fire shells filled with this chemical instead of gunpowder. It will not be necessary to penetrate a ship. A few gallons of this nitrate dashed on the deck of a war ship would render her crew helpless The most powerf ironclads would be even more vulnerable than the light crusji's for they would be sucking down great draughts of air through their artificial ventilators, and the odor would thus rapidly penetrate the whole ship. The whole crew being rendered helpless for an hour or two, the ship could, of course, be towed in to a safe spot, while the captors ven tilated her and removed the insensible men."London Times. The people of Syracuse, N. Y., are indignant over General E. W. Leaven worth's will. It ostensibly left to the ty $600,000 for park improvements, public fountains, monuments and seminary for young women, besides bequests to Yale, Hamilton and Syracuse colleges and a number of de pendents. It is said the property is so entailed as to make the bequests prac tically delusive and of no avail. Con sequently many pledges publicly made by ihe deceased are violated. Parks and avenues were named in his honor with the understanding thnt he was to contribute to their beautifieation. The Experience of Some American Glrlji Who Married Italian Noblemen. It is now ten years since a forme: Consul of the United States in ltali said to me: "American parents and guardians ought never to allow theiij^r daughter8 nr wards to nome over an.!.1 or wards to come over and pass one, two or three years, as the^' case may be, in the study of music lor the opera, or other professional sing* ing, without some elderly female rela tive to accompany and protect thern,^ and also that they may appear respect able in the eyes of respectable people^ here." This same Consul told w^oi instances wherV- great- ttialsr'andrro one case, how positive harm had come to those either neglecting or being ignorant of European manners and customers. A young lady might travel from one end of the United States to the other, or might stop any length of time for study or any other purpose wherever she pleased, with perfect impunity, and without any improprie ty but it is different here, and the Consul's word of* caution and warning had reason in it But I wish a word of caution and warning might be raised for the benefit of marriageable young American ladies and widows, who do not come here to study. Many snch come accompanied by a weak maternal relative, who is dazzled by the title and the show of some Baron, Count or Duke, who, ten to one, is an impecunious younger son of some old family run to seed. If lu had money besides titles he would many one of his own country women and ask no favor of the foreigner. Recently a most eminent professor of one of our universities was over here for the purpose of seeing si young lady relative of his, who was on the Continent with her mother, and had been carried away by one of these noble men whose affections had scented money from afar. But no change was made despite the good professor's counsels, and as he left Italy he dropped me a line from Como, saying that "neither advice, common-sense counsel nor any thing else could prevail with an American girl when the 'noble' bee got under her bonnet." All this is too true. Some of youi readers may have seen an account oi thewiiy.oiie.c^omLCansuls in_rIWan#. found, in a madhousB, lady who had truly given her heart and money to one of those impecunious ad venturers, and who then had had her shut up in an asylum, when she was no more insane tban the soundest person in Florence. All Italian husbands are not bad men, I have seen some as happy domestic relations between husband and wife as I have ever seen anywhere, and I should judge that there is greater domestic felicity here than in any other Latin nation but as a whole, the standard of family life and happiness, from the very manner of contracting marriage, is fai below that of Anglo-Saxon countries. The impecunious dandies with a roman tic noble title, have found out the weak ness of the American and the English girl, and they take advantage of it In 1882 I noticed in the bank of Messrs. Turner & Co. an English lady. I should say of twenty-live, who, accompanied by a poor, sickly looking father. was engaged in depositing some money. I could see that she was the stronger character of the two, and a person of determined will. I was informed that she was "dead in love" with an Italian, but that he would not come to terms until he had made it a condition of marriage that all her money should be assigned to him. as he knew how to invest it in Italy to the best advantage! And she turned over every centime to him. Not six months after her marriage this poor lady, from opulence, was turned idrift with only sufficient money to hire a few furnished rooms at Sorrento, md I was applied to to recommend persons to go there for pension, in rnler that she might earn her living. Only this year a respectable widow lady, residing here in Naples, allowed herself to be carried away by the atten tions and the polite bearing'toward her tan Italian gentleman. She consult ed more than one person, and among others Mr. Camphausen, our present American Consul, and they all, in answer to her question"Shall I mar ry him? "responded in the language of Mr. Punch's celebrated letter. "Don't." It was, however, of no use she "went and did it," and in less than a month the scoundrel tried to strangle her, and has since heaped all manner indignities upon her. In one sense she was a little wiser than her English sister and many of her own. She did not assign him her money, and hence the great ire of Mr. Impecunious. Italian Cor.

I performed it-he ceremony myself luss than a year ago. He is a poor man in every thing except wives, for when he came to me to be married he did not have a coat and its place was supplied with a sort of workingman's blouse. His father in-law at that time paid for the mar riage license, and he has failed yet to pay me for performing the ceremony, so you see it was mighty cheap getting married for him. I n't know how /nuch it cost h"m this time, but he has orobubly sponged his wedding oft somebody else. I'll venture to say he did not get his divoree quite *o cheap- ly."
