It is admitted to be the largest struc ture on the globe reared by human hands. For ages it has been described by travelers and all imaginable uses have been assigned to it, but in these latter days men of science begin to con fess the object is still a mystery. No doubt Cheops intended to be entombed in it somewhere, but Herodotus had the testimony of the priests and the tradi tions of antiquity that the hard-hearted old Pharaoh's mummy was tucked away where he never intended his royal body should repose to the day of judg ment. Suggestions respecting the ex act purpose contemplated in the build ing of that monster of ancient stone masonry might be quite as unsatisfac tory as any that have been discarded. Therefore, without troubling readers with notions based on our own person al examination, it is quite enough to show its actual dimensions to as tonish those who have not seen it. The original dimensions were 764 feet square at the base, 408 feet high, cover ing 13 acres, I rood, and 22 perches of limestone, at Gizeh, on the margin of the Libyan Desert, now about 8 miles from the right bank of the River Nile. It contains 79,023,000 cubic feet of rough split blocks of limestone. To build another like it now, iu the United States, would cost one hundred and six ty millions of dollars, provided the commissioners were honest men. Man aged like a court house job in New York, it would remain unfinished after the expenditure of two hundred and fifty million s of gold ! Opinions about Love. The following is what some of the old authors have to say about love : Love seldom haunts the breast where learning lies. Pope. Hate makes us vehement partisans but love still more so. Goethe. In love we are all fools alike. Gay. Love, one time iayeth burdens; an other time, giveth wings. Sir P. Sid ney. Love is the virtne of women. Dude van t. In love the deceit generally outstrips the distrust. Rochefoucauld. Love is an affair of credulity. Ovid. " Love at twentv-and-two is a terrible intoxicating draught. Ruhini. Where love dwells is paradise. Rich- ler. Love is precisely to nature what the sun is to tiie earth. Balzac. I could not love thee, dear, so much, loved I not honor more. Lovelace. Words of love are works of love. Alger. Love as if vou should hereafter hate, and hate as if you should hereafter love. Chilo. When we love we live. Congreve. Gold does not satisfy love; it must be paid in its own coin. Madam Celazy, She that is loved is safe. Jeremy Taylor. Love is an egotism of two. A. de La Salle. A Much-Married Woman. There is a woman in Washington who has buried live husbands. Recently she married a sixth. Upon the day of the wedding, a man called at the house of the groom, asked for that gentleman, and then proceeded to measure his body with a tape-line. The infatuated groom entertained an idea that this might, per haps, be a man sent around by his tailor After the ceremony iu church, how ever, the husband was surprised to ob serve this same jicrson in the vestibule and winking furiously at the bride as the party came out to the carriages. Just as they were starting off the mys terious being put his head into the car riage window, and whispered to the bride : "Got ready-made one that'll jnst suit him ! Beautiful fit beautiful Wheu the happy man demanded the name of the intruder, the bride blushed and said she believed he was some kind of an undertaker. Then the man was not so happy at all, and a certain gloom seemed to overcast the honeymoon. Per haps the undertaker was too prompt- But still, wo like to see a man take an interest iu his business.

There has transpired in this city du ring the past two weeks, says the Kan sas City Times of December 24, one of the most remarkable cases on record, being no more nor less than the extrac tion, root and branch, without pain, and by the simplest of means, of large cancer, from the left cheek ef Mr. C. A. Chace, freight agent at Kansas City of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. Mr. Chace discovered about six years ago a small red spot growing upon his left cheek, immediately below the eye. This red spot increased in size, and soon developed one of those dangerous and most unpleasant of bodily afflictions a cancer, tor about two years air. Chace has tried every medical advice and treatment, and still the horrible protuberance continued to grow, and threaten ultimately to eat away the face and cause him to lose one eye. A coun cil of physicians, each of them promi nent in his practice, was held a few weeks ago, when it was proposed to cut the cancer from the face. This proposi tion, had it been carried out, would have endangered the life of the patient, hence it was not adopted. About two weeks ago Mr. Chace called upon Prof. Kell ogg, proprietor of tbe Turkish Baths, on Walnut street, who boldly announced big ability to cure the cancer within fif teen days, if his directions were strictly complied with. Mr. Chace, glad to avail himself of any resource for get ting rid of the cancer, consented, and at once went under Dr. Kellogg's treat ment. He was placed in the Turkish bath for two hours each day, for seven days, with a temperature of 170, when it was found that the cancer was dropping out, root and fangs entire. Mr. Cbace ap plied, by Professor Kellogg's advice, a poultice, which aided ia. drawing the cancer from the cheats It first became red on one side, asttlSieB burst the skin. During the last week his family, who reside in West Kansas City, have watch ed with great anxiety the cure being effected. On Sunday the, anxiety was so great thatv notwithstanding the in tense cold weatber,Mrs. Chace called at the Baths to inform Professor Kellogg, that the cancer was about to drop out. Yesterday morning the patient himself brought the cancer in a small vial to Professor Kellogg, and it had fallen out clean, and with all its roots and fangs attached, leaving nothing except the ngly indentation in the face where the cancer had been. He will now continue to take the baths until the cheek is heal ed. The cancer, as extracted, is about the size of a hazel-nut. It is preserved at the bath, for the inspection of the curious. Mr. Cbace and family are, of course, much delighted at this almost miracu lous case, which Is as surprising as it is Important to the public. . It has hereto fore been considered almost impossible to cure cancers except by cutting them out by the roots. The discovery made aud the cure performed by Prof. Kell ogg by means of his vapor bath is one of the most useful as well as the most remarkable on record. A Very Large Job of Whitewashing— The Innocent Darkey Who Wanted to Take it. A Washington paper tells the follow ing: A good story Ls iu circulation at the expense of our able friend, Speak er Blaine. Old Job Saldkell, a colored man, had been in the whitewashing business since the days of Washington. He is a lively old darkey, and he drop ped in to say "dat some dem fellers fooled him like de dcbble." And it seems that some wags, soon after Speak er Blaine had made his dramatic de mand for an investigating committee, told old Job, always in search of work, that Speaker Blaine had the biggest sort of a job of whitewashing on hand, and he, J. S., had better see him. Duly armed with bucket and brush, the old man took a pull at the bell of the Speak er's palatial residence, and, on being an swered, said, "I want to see the Speak ah." He was shown into the library where parliamentry law and gavel relaxed in gown and slippers. "Well, my man, what's wanted ?" "I heard, sah, dat you had a mighty big job ob wbitewashiu' on hand, an' I jes' drop along to see ef I could git it." "Whitewashing ?" repeating each sep arate letter, as if dropping the words from a vial Into a spoon. "Yes, sah. Dey do say you is a gwine to whitewash de whole House ob Rep resentatives." "You infernal old scoundrel,' cried the Speaker; but he could not refrain from laughing at the amazed look of the venerable African. "Lord, sah, I'se no scoundrel. I only axed you for your job ob white-washin dat's all. Xow now now look ye heah," he continued, in some trepida tion, as he saw the Speaker rise to a question of order. "I do'no what you mean. An' you jist tell me ef you want that whitewashin' or not h?" "Look here, old man," exclaimed the Speaker, 'some stupid ass has been im posing on you." "An' den, sah," said old Job, "he 'sphiined de matter, an' "here the old fellow's countenance opened in the most alarmiug manner, and from its cavern ous depths came a "Yah, yah, yah," of the heartiest sort. This Side Up. We saw Jake nailing np a box the other day, containing sonie articles which he intended to send by express. From the nature of the contents, we knew it was essential that Vie box should not be inverted on the paasage, so we ventured the suggestion to Jwke to place the much abused, "This sidsi up," etc., conspicuously upon the cover. A few days after, we met Jake. "neard from your goods, Jake? Did they go there safely ?" "Kvery one broke ! replied Jake, sud denly. "Lost the whole hull lot ! Hang the Express Company !" "Did you put 'this side up,' as we told you?" "Yes I did, and fur fear they should not see It ou tbe kiver, I put it on the bottom to, coufound 'em."
