TUESDAY KTKNINO, JAN. 81, 1871.
The last fish story comes from New
Jersey. Lately in the ititerior of that
State", a mild-looking couDtrymau entered
a railroad car, bearing a Dirndlo tied up in
a handkerchief, which Le placed under his
seat at the end of the cur. After travel
ing along for about a half an hour a lady
sitting in front of tbe countryman was
observed to move uneasily in her seat, and
to cast savage glances at a seemingly res
pectable man sitting by hor side.
In ■ few moments afterwards anothor
lady, still further to the front, became un
easy, and at last, rising in her seat, re
quested that some gentleman in the car
would protect her from an eldeily looking
gentleman by her side, and whom she
stated had insulted her.
A dozou persons offered their assistance,
and before tho accused could speak in his
uv.ii defence his hat was jammed over his
eyes, and he was dragged to the rear of the
While there, aud carrying on with the
avengers a war of words as to what the
indignity meant, still another lady rose,
also seated further up tbe car, and accused
a gentleman sitting behind her with im
proper conduct. A rush was made for
insulter number two, but that gentleman
vigorously defended himself with a large
walking stick %hich he happened to have
und which, by tha way, was one cause of
the last trouble, his accuser stating that he
had indecorously been rapping her ankles
under tl.o seat with the same),aud while tbe
struggle to got at him was still in progress,
somebody in the front of the car shouted
there's a "snake on the floor." A scene
then ensued. The ladies in the car clam
bered up on to the seats, and many got on
the arms and backs of the same. One
elderly maiden managed to stand on the ,
hacks of two scats, in the best circus man
ner possible under the circumstances, while
a young mother threw her baby into a |
parcel-rack, and then hung convulsively
to a ventilator.
The confusion awoke the countryman,
who. on being told ol the snake, first felt
in his bundle, aud then exclaimed, "I'm
blamed, if that old eel haint got loose,"
started for the front, and soon returned
grasping firmly an immense ell, which ha
had first caught while out fishing, but
which, when brought into tho car, had
managed to get out of the bundle, and had
wended its way to tho front, lovingly ca
ressing the different varieties of ladies'
garters which he had encountered on the
way. Apologies given and received
straightened everything in that car, but the
lat that was j-immed down, and tho coun
tryman .leaving at the next station, no
blood was drawn.
gklnncr'a silver Wedding,
The following narrative will bo sugges
tive to married folks generally :
" It being just twenty-five years since
mv first wife died, I thought I could not
better celebrate the event than by having
a grand silver wedding. Alasl twenty
five brief summers, and it seems but the
day before yesterday since I returned from
her funeral, au altered mau, and told the
undertaker to call round for hia pay in the
" Tho great trouble in silver weddings
is that you are apt to get two or three
presents alike ; but I flatter myself that I
fixed 'em here. In tho first place, Mrs.
Skinner and I boked over our stock of
silverware to see what we were out of, and
found that we could take about twenty
five squire presents without getting bilious, |
and then we invited a few children, in
reference to nut-crackers, butter-knives
and other small fry. I issued my iuvita
tions two weeks beforehand, to give every
body a chance to buy a present, and in |
addition hinted in a delicate manner what 1
I should like each one to bring. So the
invitation read very much like this :
"Mrs. Charity Phleabottorn and Husband, .
Yon are both asked
To lit, and Mrs. Mose Skinner's Silver Wed
ding, January 17th.
*»*Please bring silver castor, with extra mus
" Mrs. John Beezum and Husband,
To Mr. and Mrs. Mose Skinner's Silver Wed
ding, January 17 th.
*»»We cherish tond hopes in jour direction in
reference to a silver teapot.
" On the back of each invitation was a
ueat gilt scroll, enclosing the words,
'Please avoid dollar stores.'
" To say the affair was a success, would
be defrauding the dictionary. I have
looked that ventrablo pamphlet through,
but fail to find a word that meets the case.
Nothing short of seven syllables and a
'French root' will do, so I give it up.
"Ou the arrival of tho guests I took
charge of the presents with as much emo
tion as the value of the present called for.
A nilver pie-knife I received with a husky
tremor in my voice, while au elegant silver
teapot caused me to entirely break down
with emotion. But I recovered and went
through the trying ordeal with unflinching
bravery. Those who didn't bring presents
were told that we were not at home, which
of course, made the gathering more select.
We received sorno very fine presents, in
cluding a share in a silver mine, a lock of
gray, hair streaked with silver, some silver
tones from a maiden's voice, a silvery beam
from the moon, and Eomo castor-oil made
from a silver castor.
" Then my wife and I stood up and re
ceived the silver-tongued congratulations
of our guests on our happy married life.
Out I didn't need 'em; no, I should say
not. When I see a man utterly crushed
iv spirit and bald-headed at the premature
age of fifty, with a black eye constantly
on hand, with a wife who is ready to fur
uish him with more black eyes at the low
est market price, I pause ere I congratu- I
late him on matrimonial bliss. Not that j
I would insinuate that Mrs. Skinner is not
as gentle as a dove in the olive branch bu
siuess. Not at all. I simply say that in
a case like this I should probably pause to
the extent of a semicolon and a comma ere
I congratulated him."
