young man from one of the interior >?
tillagee ol the State spent last week in A
thii city seeing the sights. He stopped ke
at the Central Hotel, and proposed to W<
"take in" all that wu worth bis atten- ?f|
tion. On the rery tin I day ol his ?t?y he *
sauntered up 14th street, and started up 01
Market ^street. He bad proceeded J1
but a short distance in that direction St
when his gize, mind and Terr life were L>
completelr eclipsed by what his eyes
beheld. Had he been of poetic turn, he tei
could not hared [ailed to use the words P"
of tho poet: d?
"Do I iltep, do I drtatn,
Do I wonder and doubt? *ti
It thing* what I her area, r ,
Or la vliloni about?" .!
But he was not thus poetical, and being SJ
a practical sort of young man, allowed ?
himself to be drawn after the comet of hU
soul's "love at flrat night." She wends ,j
lier poetic way to the unpoetic Market .
House; he follows in enraptured admira- .
tion. She halts before a stall where ,fl
horse-radish in offered for sale; he beholds mj
with admiring eyes; she buys and
passes on again; he takes up the ,
train of hie admiring adoration,
and shadows her as she goes. Hhe turns
and retraces her stew; he follows; she
proceeds to Centre Wheeling, and enters at
a residence on Main street. He beholds
nil, and watching for a weary time con- 0
elude* that he has discovered the spot Bl
which in blessed with the habitation of 0
his tailored, nnd returning to his hotel

The letter, with this curious direction'
was received by the good people who live
at tho number designated, in blank astonishment.
It bo happened that theee peo- ?

After a due amount of study, such as

it was remembered that a young married ?l.

ninga since a certain prominent citizen 01
of considerable corporosity was out in n'

in all the saloons along Market street, ?
and our corpulent friend swore by all the 11
gods and goddesses that he wouldn't patronize
any saloon where there was music 11
in the air. "Come on," he said to his *

Wiiarfuoat.?A pleasant family party
assembled at Mr. Henry Seamon's new
wharfboat last evening, in answer to an 2i
invitation extended by that gentleman.
There were present Mr.Seamou's family
and a number of personal friends, who 9!
enjoyed the "house warming" in a quiet
way. Among those present we noticed
Uncle Joe Forsythe, the Wharfmaster, o;
Mrs. Seamon and daughter, Mrs. Hop* u.
kins, MIsh Meek, Mr. Cal Stevens and
lady and Mr. John Day. The occasion
was enlivened by music furnished by

Representatives of the different boat
clubs of the city, who were invited by
the managers of the festival for the benefit
of the Orpbana of St. Joseph to agree
upon the style of a boat which they propose
to purchase and present to the boat
club receiving the highest number of r
votes, met at the Union Restaurant last
night. A single scull, thirty-ono feet
long and eleven inches wide, was agreed b
upon. The boat will bo built by John 8]
Maxwell, and will cost about $12o. The
festival is to be held about the middle of
June, in the St. Alphonsus school build- fl|

M.ksnebchor Picnic. ?The Mn-nner- p

of the Reason. The evening was pleasant, ei
the attendance unusually large, and
everything passed oft'pleasantly. Kra- g
mer furnished the music. vr
a team belonging to Arbenz'a furniture
factory ran off in Centre Wheeling p
last evening, and threw the boy who was
driving them out of the wagon. The boy
escaped uninjured, and the horses were C
stopped in a few moments, before any ai
damage was done.
