Aud the lad with his golden curls, blue eyes aud s aristocratic features was certaiuly a pret- * ty sight. He was dressed iu a velvet t Eton jacket aud cocked hat with an os- t trich feather in it, aud his l'oud mama I sitting on the nearest bench, drank iu the l glances of admiration aud words of praise 1 as sweetest incense to her soul. t “Oh, you dear child,” cried another of c the ladies. ( “Come away Fido. He won’t bite you f dear.” Still the lad looked ou the pud* c gy dog doubtfully. 1 “What would you do if you had a nice 1 little dog like that ?” iuquired the lady i at the end of the ribbon, 1 “I’d knock the everlastiu’ stufHu’ out of him,” promptly responded the little « chap. Whereat his fond mamma turned 1 crimson. 8 “Come on Fido,” said the owner of the £ dog stiffly. Hut the rest of the party l looked as if in hearty approval of this a sentiment, especially the solemn young a man who was with them.—Pittsburg Di» patch. j Put Up and Put Down. s 1 want a word to rhyme with ills. c I have it now : I’ll put down pills. Excuse me, though—than put down pills, j I'd rather suffer some big ills.

The lotus, ha*u, is of great importauce u the legends and superstitions, and also lolds a high rank in all the arts of Ja jan. Many centuries ago the lotus was jrought to Japan from China, where, as veil a? India, all water lilies were, from •emote ages, held in a |sort of veuera* ion, beiug accepted as a special symbol if fertility and reproduction. Buddhism took the lotus as a symbol if its teachings, and it occupies a siguifi ant position in the worship of Buddha, vho is often represented seated, upon the otus leaves. According to an old In liau legend, Siva sat upon them aud ooked ou when the world was swallowed ip in the great flood. As the lotus lifts ip its buds out of the slimy water to ;reater or less height, uufolding its beau* ifnl leaves and flowers in matchless pu* ity aud perfection, with no trace of the mpurity whence they have sprung, so the ouls of men, according to Buddhist faith, ise from the slime of sin, by their own, lower and effort, to different heights of ;reatuess and perfection. The lotus is also associated with the piriU of the dead, aud hence is consider* d out of place in scenes of mirth and nerry-making, and is never used for lecoratiou on such occcasions. It holds, owever, high rauk in the floral art, •eiug regarded as the king of flowers.— u all floral arrangements the leaves play ne most imporiaui pari, auu mey »ic fteu selected to express the three Bud Ihisticdivisious of time—present, past and uture.

It grows iu the reatest luxurianoe, thousands of blooms eing seen in small ponds. As its roots re edible, it is cultivated for ornament ud use.—Honored'« Family Magazine. On a property where the rabbit Bhoot ug was strictly preserved, upon the outhern coast of England, a boy was uce caught with two dead rabbits iu his possession, aud nothing else that would ccount for their decease. A search of is pockets revealed nothing but two live rabs of small dimensions, the end of a nudle, aud a box of matches. I uder promise of release the urchiu was per uaded to disclose his method of proce lure. First he selected a likely burrow and hen he stripped off his clothes, putting is coat over one hole, his trousers over nother, and his shirt over the third.— le lit the caudle aud dropped a little of he grease upon a crab’s back aud stuck he lighted candle thereon, and then put he crab at an unoccupied opening.— itraightway the frightened torch-bearer led sideways into the darkness and ex plored the innermost depths, while the •oy, expectant as a terrier, awaited vents outside. Presently a rabbit bolted iuto the coat, ud boy, rabbit aud coat all rolled over ogelher, the boy rising from the fray nth the rabbit iu his clutches.

A certaiu amount of social life is uee-! essary to us all—to the old as well as the young, writes Edward B. Bok iu a per tinent article ou man’s inability to see things as others see them. A woman never grows so old that she ceases to en joy the company of othere, aud geuerally the older she grows the more she enjoys j it. It is always a pity to see a man fall iuto a state which he explaius by saviug : [ “Oh, we’re getting old, aud don't care for so much variety in our lives." In J the pure uuselfishuess of his soul he al ways speaks of “us" and “we" as if it naturally follows that because he is get ting autiquated his wife must keep pace with him in his decline. Men all too often make their wives too old. It is a greater credit to a husband to keep his wife youug than to make her grow old. His actions aud his habits necessarily influ ence those of his wife. Let him keep in touch with the world, aud both he aud his wife will be the better aud younger for it. I like to see a mau proud of his wife because she keeps young. Old age is beautiful and has its advan tages, but a man makes a great mistake wheu he rushes a woman unnecessarily toward it. And he does it most perfect ly when he deprives her of those enjoyments which every man should give his wife. No ecouoruy so false, so nonow aun so uiuguiaea as mat which seeks to withhold one pleasure from the life of a good woman, a true wife or lov ing mother. The best home a man cau give a woman becomes “poky” as one woman I know expresses it, if she is ask ed to live iu it 365 days out of every year. The good Lord knows that wom an’s life iu this world is hard euough.— She travels a |>uth of enduriug and suf fering, to which man, be he ever so heav ily afflicted, is an entire stranger. It was given to mau to make that path as pleasant, aud easy and as bright as jK)seible. Every -dollar which a man spends for the happiues of the woman of his home will come back to him in dou ble, yea, in iourfold measure. Kept ills IVoittfa*. Mr. Samuel Blackwell, of Alabama, the newly appointed third auditor of the treasury, is an instance of what a genuine man can do iu curbing his appetite or shaking off a dangerous habit when he makes up his mind for a long, runuiug tight. He returned to Selma at the close of war, a youug aud very attractive fellow of a strongly social disposition, and promptly fell in love with one of the belles of a town that is noted iu the Southland for its beautiful women. The nffection was mutual, but Blackwell, like so many other youngsters in the ranks, had acquired a thirst which he proceeded to slake whenever the humor seized him. The lady of his heart tiually told him that she would marry him, but upon one condition only. “What is that ?” “That you will not swallow a drop of iutoxicating liquor for ten years.” “That is a long time betweeu drinks," said he. “I know it,” she said, “but-” “Will you wait that long?” he inquir ed. .She replied that she would. He re sponded : “All right,” and went out.— They were faithful during the decade of probation. At the end of the time they were married. .Mr. Blackwell has rig orously refrained ever since the day when he set nis hat squareiy on ms ne»u and walked out of his sweetheart’s par lor.— W*i*l*ington Fo*t. The Chimney Sicallotc. They have come far to rear their broods iu this northern clime; farther perhaps, than almost any of the birds now here, for they eouie from the sunshine of j the far Ceutral America and the Weak Judies—regions which are part of the ; world’s kitchen, always warmed by the kitchen fire—and these happy birds leave it for their chosen breeding places in the ; green spring fields far north, < n the borders of the of the world’s refrige rator. Only they do not seek the greeu fields for their nesting ; they ouild their queer nest in unused chimneys. All the joy, all the life of these remarkable birds is in the air, and iu flight. All their vital functions are performed “on the wing even the dead twigs of which their strange built nests are constructed are snipped off from the tree w thout a pause in their flight. Their happy chirruping voices are heard in the pleasant evening twilight of May and June, as they dash forward in their zigzagging flight in pur suit of swarms of the minute insects in the air. Iu several respects they are peculiar and interesting birds. Pitcher’s Oastorla. .4 Hint'a Eye View of the Derby. It ia one o’clock before you leave the cul* tivated lands behind, and toil slowly up the steep hill to the downs, where the white dust rises suddenly like a mist and shuts out the rest of the world, leaving you in a white cloud which blinds and suffocates you. It makes you understand the mosquito nets in front of the hansoms and the blue and green veils around the men’s hats. It is a dust which conceals everything from view except the rear of the coach just in front and the flashes of light where the sun strikes on a piece^ brass mounting.— It is like moving though a fog at sea. One hears the crack or the whips and the creak* ing of wheels and leather all around, and the half-hearted protest of some guard on his horn, but one can only imagine what the dust hides, and comes out of it on the top of the downs as out of a Turkish bath, gasping and tearful, and wondering if those other people know how white and be draggled and haggard they look. The top of the downs is one vast encampment—an encampment without apparent order or gov* erument, with every dust-covered hedge in sight lined with picketed horses and don keys, and with hundreds more grazing along lines of rope which early risers have stretch ed for your convenience and their possible profit. You must pass through a mile of this impromptu stabling before you reach the race-track proper, and between rows and rows of cart* resting upon their shafts, and hansom-cabs with the driver’s seat pointing skywards, and omnibuses abandoned for the lime to gypsies and hostlers. It is a bivouac as great as that of any army corps. In the centre of these open-air stable* rises the grand stand with its back towards London. It is the highest grand stand in the world, arm irie pcopie on ino iop oi i v* recognized from the ground even with an opera glass. It faces one end of a horseshoe track—a turf track with stout rails on eith er side of it. In the centre of this horseshoe (rack is a valley, and this valley, and the track, aud the downs beyond the horseshoe track, are covered for miles with what looks like a succession of great and little circuses and their accompanying side shows. There is not a row of booths here and a bunch of tents there, but long, irregular avenues aud streets built of booths and flag-covered tents, with canvas pictures for walls, stretching on beyond one another for a mile, like a fight ing line of old battleships with all their cauvas set and all their aiguals flying ; and in aiuougst these are thousands of peo ple pushing and shoving and moving in black blocks and streams tnd currents with & soldier’s scarlet coat or gypsy’s yellow shawl showing for an instant, and then dis appearing again in the ocean of black heada aud white faces.—Harper’t Magazine. - ♦ .— — Odd Thing* About Money. There are 110,000,000 old copper pennies somewhere. Nobody knows what has be come of them, except that once in a while a single specimen turns up in change. A few years ago 4,500,0(10 bronze two cent pieces were set afloat. Three million of them are still outstanding. Three million three cent uickle pieces are scattered over the United States, but it is very rarely that one is seen. Of 800,000 half-ceuts, which correspond in value to English farthings, not one has been returned to the government for recoin* age or is held by the treasury. Congresa appropriates from #100,000 to #150,000 year ly for recoining the uncurreut silver coins now in possession of the treasury. These are mostly half-dollars, and are not circula ted, because there is no demand for them. • Not long ago the stock of them amounted to #26,000,000, but it is only about half that uow. The money set aside for reeoinage is uot intended to pay for the cost of minting but is required to reimburse the treasurer of the United States, on account of the lose of weight which silver pieces have suffered by Tl.iu l/u« inimmtu to #30 OD every *1,000, and it has to be made good, iu order to set the treasurer's accounts straight.

Scull, Gen eral Passenger Agent, Baltimore, Md. - The Chicago Journal makes the deliber ate charge, or, at least, it asserts as some thing "beyond a reasonable doubt,” that over 100,000 persons went to the World’# Fair on the Fourth of July over and above the number accounted for by the bureau of admissions. The revised figures show that the paid admissions on that day were 283,273, and this number was swelled by 41,071 entering as exhibitor*, employe*, etc., to 324,344.— But the Journal has made careful investi gation of the returns of the various trans portation companies, and finds that at the lowest calculation there wera conveyed to Jitks*i-P*rk that day 41&.541 per*™*.
