A few days ago young Gurlcy, whoso
father lives on Croghan street, organi
zed a theatrical company and purchas

The company consisted of three boya
and a hostler, and Mr, Gurley's hired
girl was to bo tho 'Ghost' if the truopc

Young Q urlcy suddenly bloomed out
aB a professional, and when his moth

replied :
'J hough I am penniless thou canst
not degrade me.'
'You trot out after that wood or I'll
have your father trounce you !' she ex
'The tyraut who lays his baud upon
me shall die/ replied thq'bey, but he
got tho wood. ' '
Ho was out on the step when a man
camo along and asked htm-where Lafay
etto street was, J
'Doomed for a certain time to roam
tho earth !' replied Gurley in a hoarse
voice, and holding his right arm out
straight. ,
'I say?you ! "Where is Lafayette
street ?' called the man.
'Ah?could the dead but speak ah !'
continued Gurley.
Tho mau drove him into the house,
u nd his mother sent him to the grocery
after potatoes.
'I go, most noble duchess,' he said
as he took up the basket, 'but my good
sword shall some day evengo these in
suits.' ' "
Ho knew that the grocer favored the
atricals; and wheu ho got there he ask
'Art thou provided with a storo of

cd the grocer, us be cleaned the cheese

'Thy plebian miud is dull of com pre

'Don't try to got off any of your non

and 'Hamlet' had to como down from
his high horse and ask for a peck of
'What made you so long, asked his
mother as ho returned.
'Thy graye shall be dug In the cy
press glade !' ho haughtily answered.
When his father camo home at noon
Mrs. Gurley told him that she believed
the boy was going crazy and related
what had occurred
'I sec what ails him,' mused the fath
er; 'this explains why he hangs arouud
Johttsou's barn so much.'
At the dinner table young Gurley
spoke of bis father as tho 'illustrious
i mm.' and when his mother asked him
if he would have some butter gravy he
i answered :
'The appetite of a warrior cannot be
satisfied wilh such oonsence.'
When the meal was over his father
went out to his fuvoritc shade trco, cut
a sprout, and the boy was askedjjto step
into tho woodshed and see if the pen
stock was frozen up. He fouud the
old man there and he said.
'Why, most noblo, lord I supposed
thee far away.'
'I'm not so far away but what I'm
going to make you skip,' growled the
father. 'I'll show you how to fool
around with ton cent tragedies ! Como
up here!'
For about ten minutes tho woodshed
was full of dancing feet, flying arms
and moviug bodies, and then tho old
man took a rest and inquired.
?There, your royal highness, dost
thou want any moro V

American Girls.
A French traveler, who has recently
passed some mouths on this side uf tho
Atlantic, furnishes the Hcvuc de* Deux
Mondes quito a lengthy sketch of life
aud manners iu America. Without
comment wo givo that portion of his
sketch in which reference is ninde to
tho manners nud custoiucs of the
average American girl. We ituugioo,
however, that the picture drawu will be
readily reeogoized. Tho writer says :
The young American girls only live
to have tho best,possible time. They
are as free as can be. Fortunately their
exaggerated lovo of pleasure is cheeked
by a calculating temperament, which
saves them from many a fall. Thou
tho laws of tiie country protect them
more ellicieully than ours would against
tho enterprise of the male intriguer.
They do not, however, prevent many
abuses, and fast young ladies are by no
means a rarity iu tho city of New York.
During the day they go With some
friends or with tho escort of hita.who
has the privilege to flirt with theni to
tho Central Turk. In winter thoy go
sleighing and skating, and air their
curiosity in all tho stores of Broadway.
There they get all sorts of goods spread
out before themj they ask tho price of
each aud buy none. The impassive
sale-man dots not show the least sij;n of
discontent. There is a peculiar word
for that singular custom. It is 'shop
ping.' Auother custom which is largely
practiced by American ladies is to outer
oouftotioneiy shops and take ice creams
at every opportunity. * * *

where several times a day they
make a display of dresses which might
ruin a score of husbands; or they cross
the ocean aud astonish European folks
by their merry freaks. * * * .Many
people accustomed to our habits would
uot fancy such girls for wives, au I they
may not bu wrung: but tho truth is th at
these gay, light hearted, and ?lten
dangerously imprudent girls, make in
the end excellent wives and mothers.

There are hearts hard enough to re
