I wheeled my horse round, I hardly know why, Fulled him up and waited The death that was nigh What mad tossing manes, What light in their eyes, What plunges, what swiftness, What terrible cries!

[From the Daily Graphie.} Latest Folly in Fashion. How to Dress the Hair—Bonnets and Jockeys—How to Put Them On— How to Build Panniers—'JL'Ue late Styles for Funerals, It now takes the annual production ot sixteen canal horses to furnish ma terial for a faohiouable young lady to build her upper story with. On top of a belle, the sky-scrapor is called a boll-fry. The hair is worn pretty snarly about tho face. Tho best way to get jtist tho right curl of tho hair is to fill it full of corn meal and let the chickens scratch it out. Bonnets arid jockeys aro suspended at some distance ovor the wearer's head. It is necessary for a lady to have her top covering put on from a third story window, unless sho has pulleys and ropos arranged overhead to draw up her bonnet with. It is no uncommon thing for bead gear to be carried away by coming in contact with telegraph wires, as the fair ones pass underneath them. As nature has not furnished every lady with a broken back, a good im itation can be built with six months back numbers of some prosperous daily paper's exchanges.

This, however, isn't tho stylo when gentleman acquaintances meet each other. When ono gontleman bows to another, it's stylo to ask him "round tho corner,,' when they can both emile with thoir mouths.

Mr. Geikie, director of tho Goo logical Survey of Ireland, in a loc ture recently dclivcrod upon the an tiquity of man in Britain, calls atten tion to tho differences between tho paloolithic and neolithic stono pori' ods of that country, marked by tho occurrence of rudo stono implements in tho former, and polished ones in tiio latter. IIo estimates a wide In terval of time between these two pe priods, the paleolithic being charac terized by tho occurrence of tho im plements referred to iu caves aud in river gravels, associated with tho re mains of animals which aro now eith er extinct, or which have retreated far to tho north, and aro only to bo found in an arctic climate—the for mer including tho cave boar, tho Irish deer, several species of rhinoceros, elephant, etc. tho latter tho reindeer the glutton and tho musk-ox. IIo concludes that the paleolithic man mnst have entered on tho stage ages before tho valleys of tho south of England wero hollowed out to thoir present depth, that during his long occupation tlio rivers succeeded in cutting out theso valleys, and that not until after this was eifeotod did paleolithic man-d'sappoar, and neo lithic man take his place, no neolithic remains occurring in the anoient gravels. Mr. Geikio then inquires into tho naturo of this break, and tho causes which produced tho Bimultaueous disappearance of paloolithic man and tho old pachyderms, and tho subse pient introduction of neolithic man, and tho animals ot an almost totally different form. This ho explains by tho intervention of tho glacial epoch and concludes that during tho paleo lithic period man experienced two kinds of climate, ono almost arctic, tho other mild and gonial, tho two tpresentod by tho preglacial and in tcrglacial periods. After tho unknown period of time which tho last glacial changes were complete'] and tho surface of tho land was again exposed, neolithic man made his appearance. Mr. Croll estimates tho commencement of the glacial epoch as being at least 210, 000 years ago, and the period it self as lasting for 1,000 centuries. If man bo of preglacial ago, his antiqui ty in Britain is therefore '200,000 years. While Great Britain was joined to tho contineut neolithic man aud his associated animals mado their ap pearance (the wiutors being severe enough to freeze over tho rivers in tho south of England,) coming in from the east and south, or from re gions whence they had been previ ously displaced by these climatolog ical changes. However, the inter vals indicated may havo been brigod over for them elsewhere, Mr. Geikie is quite satisfied that they wero en tirely absent from Great Britain for a very long period of years.—Edit ors Scientifio Record, ilarpw's Magazine for June.

Tho facts narrated herein wero told us yesterday by a gentleman who declared ho would vouch lcr their authenticity. A few days ago a man dressed in plain but neat clothes presented himaolf at the office of tho cashier of the United States Branch Mint, and said he would liko to make a draft on tho institution. "Does the Mint owo you any thing asked tho cashier. "A small sum. I believe I have on deposit somewhere in tho neigh- tached to their leg, but whiteWai^bwtuwd O1160 ounces of gold dast." had tho most admirers and friends, and sho won. "I don't remomber having received*1 any such stun recently." 'i No, I reckon not for yon seo I don't think you wero hero when I made the deposit,' and tho stanger produced from his pockot-book a brown, ago-begrimmed looking pieoo of paper, which ho handed to tho gentlemanly cashior. The latter took the paper and road Received of in 1854, ono hundred and sixty ounces of gold dust,' etc., and then exclaimed— Why, this has been hero for nine* tccu years 1' I guess its about that time. You see, I eamo down from tho mines in 1854, bringing with mo some gold dust. A little dab 1 deposited hero while a good deal moro was gam* bled and fooled away—drinking and sich. Then I really don't remember much moro about what happened un til I found myself at sea, in tho foro castlo of a ship. I was told that I had shipped as a sailor, and mnybo I did at any rate there was no holp for it, and I did my duly a? well as I know how until I was discharged in Australia, when I went off to tho mines in that country, and havo been trying my luck in almost overy quar ter of tho globe. But times havo changed a great deal from the Hush days of California. I could spin you an interesting life yarn, but this id not tin time or place, so if tho docu-.. niouts aro all right I will trouble you for that httlo sum." An examination of tho books re vealed tho fact that the amount had been deposited and never callod for, but was always kept in readinoss for tho depositor. The man was inform ed that the government did not pay interest on deposits, but was always ready to pay tho principal. A few moments more, and the equivalent of the dust deposited ninotoen years foro was handed across tho countor and gathered up by tho visitor, who, bidding tho cashier "good-day," went ou his way rejoicing.—Alta Califor nian.
