A Michigan widow who jumped down off a load of Hay and knocked down a tramp who made fun of her sun-bonnet, had three oilers of marriage within a week. A Weasteru paper informs its readers that its candidate for Congress slings the most eloquent lip of any man in the State. "Good morning," remarked tw-- gentlemen as they stepped up to the bar. "Homin', gen tlemen, what'll it be?" asked the bar-keeper. "Well, I'll take a Han-cocktail," said one. "Give me a ci-Gar-field," and they both laughed and said it was a very good joke— Albany Journal. A boat can sail on a tack and not make a fuss about it, but when a man sails on a tack he—well it is different-- Pittsburg Tele graph. Mother—"Now, Gerty, be a good girl, and give Aunt Julia a kiss and say good night." Gerty—"No, no ! if I kiss her she'll box my ears, like she did papa's last night. The Sun prints a poem every morning and always puts directlv under it the advertise ment of a patent medi-ine which cures cramps and colic, ft is such careful care for the health and convenience or its readers that makes the Sun so invaluable.— Puck. Grandpa—"Now, Tommy, can you teli me where port comes from?" Tommy—"No, sir; but I know where it goes to." The question is not pressed. At a recent marriage, the bride was a young damsel who had beeu a great flirt. When the clergyman asked the usual question, "Who gives this woman away ?" a young man present exclaimed, "1 can, but I won't. Last week a Bible agent sat down at a farmer's table out west, played euchre with the old man and won a yoke of four-year-old steers from him, aud then made him buy eight dozen Bibles and sixteen pounds of tracts to redeem his steers. "What is meant by the power behind the throne?" asked the teacher. "The ace," re plied the smart, bad boy, "which is greater than the king." Baby, new to earth and sky, .Soon as born begins to cry, Day and night does babv yell. And makes its dady mad as— well. Mad as anything. The vowels: Why is i the happiest of vow els?

It took the l'rince of Wales a whole year to learn to waltz, and even now he holds his legs as stiff as pokers. What sort ot a king will such a man make ? It is said that a woman's voice can he heard for two miles by a man in a balloon. That may be til ■ reason whv so few men go up in balloons.— Peck's Sun. An old salt when asked liow far north he had ever been, replied that he had been so far north that, "the cows, when milked beside a red hot stove, gave ice cream." The older a sparkling coquette or fashion able belle grows the more matchless she be comes. It is a mistake to tliiuk there is no rest for the wicked. The wicked man loads himself tolerably full of beer and sleeps like a log, while the good man is wakeful and mourns because iie is but a worm.—-Yen' Orleans Picayune. "My umbrella is getting decidedly shabby." said a young man about, town one night last week. "1 believe I will have to strike another prayer-meeting on a rainy night ."—Elmira Advertiser. How a Father was Staved "My early practice," said a doctor, "was successful, and I so on attained an enviable position. I married a lovely girl ; two chil dren were horn to us and my domestic hap piness was complete. But i was invited of ten tosocia 1 parties where wine was lredy circulated, and soon 1 became a slave to its power. Before I was aware of it I was a drunkard. My noble wife never forsook me, never taunted me with a bitter word, never ceased to pray for my reformation. We were wretchedly poor, so that my family became pinched for daily bread. One beautiful Sab bath my wife went to church and left me on a louuge sleeping oft' my previous night's do bauch. I was aroused by hearing something fall heavily on the floor. I opined my eyes and saw my lit'le boy of six years tumbling on the floor. Ilia older brother said to him, 'Now get up and fall aga,n. That's the way papa does. Let's play we'ie drunk.' I watch ed the child as he persona'ed by beastly movements in a way that would have done eredit to any actor. 1 arose and left the house groaning in agony and remorse. I walked oft', miles into the country—thinking over my abominable sin, and the example I was set ting before my children. 1 solemnly resolv ed that with God's help I would quit the cup, and i did. No lecture 1 ever heard from Gough moved my soul like the spectacle of my own sweet boys, 'playing drunk as papa does. ' " a Mrs. Graut In Public I.tfe. "Were you with Gen. Grant much during the war?" " I was part of the time with him, but not as the newspapers have represented. I had a paper sent me the other day with an article marked, in which I was represented as being much better than I am, and as doing many things which were impossible. For instance, it waS stated that after a battle in which the general was engaged I invariably hurried to the front to he ot what service L might. Now that was not true at ail. The General would ifst have put up with it at all. He would hayc been very angry if I had appeared at such a time, ami 1 knew it. I was also stated that I had busied myself in hunting out poor people i 1 I i ' i upon whom to besiow- alms. That was also incorreet. Enough of such people always found me ; L did not have to seek them out. Then I was reported as busying mysell in seeking positions for wealthy young ladies in the treasury department, and for other appli cants in other places. Now my husband would not allow that. I did nothing of the kind to influence him. 1 don't think—in fact, terms more than two appointmen's. oo. you sec, the newspapers were wrong." " I remember to have seen it stated that long before the war you often predicted that ! your husband would be president," interrupt ed some one. "Yes, I know such statements have been tu , ..... I'm «in« i riirin't »hat in tho whnlp kn sin which he was president I obtained . than t wo annoiotme,.'«. von see. I made, but they wery utterly without fouuda- ; lion. I did not dream of my husband becom- ; ing President any length of time before lie was actually called to tlie position. In fact, 1 was not ambitious to have him fill the posi tion until they began to abuse him. I was perfectly satisfied to have him remain Gener al of the Army. About two weeks before the convention which noinjnated him, t spoke to j him about the reports that were being circu latec that lie would receive the nomination, and asked him if be thought lie would be nominated, and he said be thought lie would be, and that if be were chosen he would be elected. I asked him if he thought he could SI! the office, and be replied that he thought lie could do as well as most others."— Mrs. Grant's Interview, in Denver Tribune. THE TEBRITOHT. ■«•flier County. [Husbandman.] Thus far only about $300 lias been sub scribed towards our town halL Fully $1,000 more Is needed to put up sucli a building as is contemplated. There will be more ranches taken up and Improved on the Judith and Musselshell be tween this and cold weather than there have beeu during the past spring and summer. The fall season at the health resort promis es to excel anything the place has ever before experienced. Guests from all parts of the Territory are expected. Sheep from the Pacific coast have com menced to arrive, aud those contemplating investment have their eyes open for bargains. The cowboys are getting numerous once more. The round-up commences at Martins dale on the 15th, and stockmen are mustering their forces and moving in that direction. The most of them expect to brand more calves this fall than they did last spring. Madison County. [Madisonian.] E. F. Johnson went down to Silver Star last Saturday, aud on his return brought with him 201 ounces of bright gold bullion, the re sult of a run on 50 Ions of ore from the Sil ver Star lode. Four ounces of gold to the ton is pretty good medicine to take, and we understand there is plenty more of the same kind in sight in the mine. We learn that several experts have been examining the mineral legion round about Pony this'sumrner, and it is likely that works suitable for the treatment of the ores, which are too base for reduction by stamp-mill pro cess, will he erected there at an early day. A man named McAllister, who had written several insulting note. to the wife of a prom lient Virginian, was captured by the latter, tied up and soundly whipped with a black snake. The miscreant was then ordered to leave the town, which he did with all possible haste. Mfsiffiilit Comity. [Missoulian.] Dan Hash has again got the Marshal grade in running order, and teams are no longer compelled to climb the heavy hill to get into town. The military detachment which have been at woik at Nine Mile have completed theii work at that place aud have removed to St. Kegis. John Fredline got a hard fall from a scaf fold where he was at work on Friday last. IIis feet slipped out from under him and he slid off the scaffold, striking upon his left shoulder, disjointing it.
