i 1883 :
As to the discrimination between

There is much to be said upon this sub
ject, both for and against the carrier
As against him, it may be said that if
the competitive point is situated one
hundred miles away from a possible des
tination, and he can afford to move mer
chandise, or it is moved, over that one
hundred miles at a given rate, be ought

fornia, but almost every other rdaee J
country in which a railroad is operated
H would seem at first glance to be onlj
reasonable that the carrier should not
be allowed to charge for the lesser dis

In my humble judgment, when you de

proposition, be vested with the power
to determine anu nave me ... j.

Iowa Homestead.
I am led to write this article from

I "My two eunichs," resumed the Jew,
j "can be of no service in this affair; 1
will therefore marry'.her myself, if you
j have no objection, and you shall give
; the usual marriage benediction." "I
! had ahundred times rather be embowelled
1 hv the Roman soldiers," said the al-
! moner, '-than to be instrumental to your
committing incest; were she your sister
by the father's side only the law would
allow your marriage, because there is no
certainty about a child's father: but
as she is your sister by the same mother,
such a marriage would be abominable.
"lean readily admits returned the young
man, "that it would be a crime at jerus
lem, where I might see many other
young women, one of whom I might
marry; but in the isle of Padrabanca,
where I see nothing but cocoas, pineap
ples, and oysters, I consider the case to
be very allowable. After the expiration
of fourteen years the mother died; and
the father sdd to the almoner, "have
you at length got rid of your old preju
dices? Will you mary my daughter?"
"God preserve me from it," said the Es
aMsiati. "Then." said the father, "I
will marry her myself, come what will of
it; fori cannot bear that the seed of
Abraham should be totally annihilated.
The Essenian, struck with inex
pressible horror at such a proposition,
would dwell no longer with a man who
thus violated and defiled the law, and

the suffering cousin. One of the soldiers

they galloped to head-quarters, believing
the negro had told them a lie. The sick
girl bounced out of bed booted and

did not stop until he had reached a

indescribable beauty. I had taken my
seat on the box with the driver that i
might the better enjoy the view aDcl at
the same time escape the learnca jargon
of the professor, who having no other
audience was focusing his learning upon
our friend of the checkered shirt. In
making a steep ascent we passed along
a very narrow ledge overlooking a chasm
so deep that the light of the moon failed
to penetrate the cavernous darkness.
We paused to admire the awful gran
duer of the scene, and while the profes
sor's head was stuck out of the window in
silent admiration of the surroundings,
his silk hat fell off, struck the ground
and bouncing over the brink, disappeared
from -iew in the darkness below. He
jumped out as though inclined to follow
it and begged us in the most excited ana
pitiful manner to get it for him. Con
sidering the loss of so trivial matter as a
hat, his anxiety appeared extremly ridic

precipice lodged in some bushes, entirely
beyond reach. Upon the professors
offering ten dollars for its recovery the
driver took the reins from the horses,
tied them together, securing one end to
a tree and the other around his body,
lowered himself and presently reappear
a with the hat to the great iov of the
owner, who cheerfully handed him the
reward promised. He then explained
that he had been hoarding up two years
s ilar y in anticipation of this sum me i 'a
excursion and, as we all seemed houest
friends, he did not mind telling us that
he had eleven hundred dollars secured
in the lining of the hat . This little in-
I aidant nroved of oositive benefit to us,
for it seemed to act as a quietus upon
the professor, who relapsed into a pro
found meditation and ceased to bore ns
with accounts of his learned investiga
