sceptres, royal bracelets, which were uses

bracelets are especially interesting. The3

sections of huge elephant tusks, and, until

ORDERIN(G A WIFE.

To every appearance the fish belonged to
the trout family, and was judged to be a
freak in size.
One of the curious lookers-on measured
the length of the monster and found it to

A drummer for a certain paper mill met
a sentimental young woman on a Grand
Trunk train going up to Port Huron, and it
was not long before his modest diffidence
so impressed her that she let him sit beside
her and divide the charming landscape with
her through the same window. After a der
lightful talk of half an hour, says the i)e
troit Free Press, he began to refer to him
self and his labor.
"What bhusiness are you in?" she in
"The newspaper business," he said.
