Lola Montez's Hair.
John Hull Pennville, who passed
through Virginia (Nev.) rrc»:i ll y from
I'IUUISH county. California, on hi* way to
Esmeralda county, in California, lias in
his possession a curious rtiic o!" timt
strange an<l a 1 venturous * »m*n. Lola
Monter Mr. Pennville U an accom
plished violinist, and at the time »licn
Lola was re-iding in Gra>- Valley. Cal
ifornia, was in the habit of pl aying fur
her in order tha* she might practio-
some new da no- of her own invention
The violiniat had a strong pasMrtu tor
making collection of human hair, | ar-
ticular the long tresaes of w,m> n H»-
had several times hinted to Ixlt hi*
great desire to jM»«4»e«a a tre»s of her
hair, hut she refus< d to take these hint*
howev»r plainly made. At this time
I>l|H had in h»*r possession at h*-r home
in Grass Valley a young hear that sh>-
was training tor sum* purpose, she b
ing at that time about twenty nine
years of age and still fuli of life and
ambition One day when P«».nvill«
again hinted about the tress, L.la said:
"Mr. Pennville, if you wilt go out in
to that back yard, throw that bear to
the ground and hold hitn one minute by
my watch. I will give yon a strand of
ray buir large enough for the bow of
your violin."
"Done !" cried Pennville, ar. heat
once proceeded to the yard for his tus
•le with the bear, Lola following to
time him.
The bear w s:i grizzly iiot yet old
enough to l>e verv dangerous, and Peun
villu proceeding as though at play with
the animal, with very little trouble or
ri'k turjeeied in winning the much
coveted lock of hair. The tre>s w»«
promptly surrendered, and I'cnti*ilie
long kept it auioug the othxr »|iecimens
in liis collection, but when he heard of
Lolit'n death, •uuiewht re in the State of
New York, in 1860 or 1801.hu remem
bered her words at the time he won the
nioueuto, "I will <jive you n ttratid
large enough for the bow ot your vio
lin, and he then li roc ceded to place
the hitir on the handsoiiiett he
could procure, where it remains to this
day.
"Will you play ua something with
the bow, Mr. lVnn»ille v " said we, anx
ious to be able to »ity we hud hoard
even the smallest thing plnyd with so
strange u relic of a now almost forgot
ten woman, and trembling ieat we
should be refused sucli gratification.
"I seldom use the l*>w in playing,"
said Mr. Pennville, "but on this occa
sion 1 will give you u short piece that
was a favorite with Lela. In othor
words, you shall hear n bit of music
that was loved by Lola Monti/, played
with her own hair."
To rur surprise ho tlicn to
|day i» most moiiriiful. tearful lit of
MIINIT IIIIIK, TILUJ, HI lie concluded, In-
Raid, "That wii>i not oiily ii favorite
jiiecM with Lola. I.ut wut ;il-o of lu r
own composition."
I'onuville is now quito an old man,
and <ltH's u*>t M|i|ii'itr to Iki overburdened
with this world's good*, hut it would
take a large sunt of money to purchase
that fiddle-bow.
▲n Anocdoto of Houry Clay.
From the Richmond Whig.
During tlie "Couiproiuiae" ilis<-u*aion
of 1850, K lady from (Jeorgia, Hctempii
nied by her liutlmixl, called uu ilr
t'luy at the Nrttioinil 11 <>t el. Il<> was
extremely busy, ami #<Mit down a note
• pologir.uig himl expresKinj; the hope
that tilt*? woiilil call in the morning
Hut the lady would not put of so
ea*ily. Sim immediately wrote him a
beautiful note, in a beautiful hand, in
which she Haiti that *ho and her hus
band h.id come nut tie hundred uiilca out
of their way to s*>e bini, and begged
the honor of a brief interview, as they
were under the tieces*ity of leaving that
evening. The great Kentucky states
man, of course, uiude a graceful sur
render.
The party were introduced, and a
pleasnut conversation followed, which
Mr. Clay himself seemed to enjoy 110
less than his guests. As it was draw
ing to a close, the lady remarked that
•be had still another f»vor to ask, the
reference to which seemed to give her
•omc little euibarrassuieut. "What is
it, Madame, if you please r" ••Sir,"
Mid she. "before leaving home I toid
luy friends that I would not only see
Mr. Olav, but that 1 would be kissed
by hiiu !" "My dear Madame," said
be. rising, "as Mr. Lowudes said of the
Presidency, that is an honor neither to
lie sought nor declined;" and the lady's
wish was gratified.
HF* It is a little singular that
Christiars will spend hundreds of
dollars in trying to find a din
ner in heatheu lands, when they could,
with a twenty-cent looking-glass, fir.d
missionary work for a lifetime
IT is estimated by authority that in
hurope ooe person in 1,637 it d«»af and
