Ceside her sat her husband, a little, meek, demure looking man, who seemed incapable of boldness of speech or action. Presently a guest at the other end of the table bawled out at the top of his voice: "Waiter! fetch the vinegar cruet." Then the demure looking little man turned to her and said : "Dovey, somebody wants you." A too utterly, too, too young man had his fortune told by a clairvoyant. Her charge was f 5. lie refused to pay It, and she sued him before a justice of, the peace to recover the amount. The defense was that the clairvoy ant was a charlatau and that there was no truth in the story she had told him. Turning to her the justice then asked: "What have you to say on that, madam ?" "I admit," she replied, "that what I told him was purely Im aginary and false." "Then why do you in sist," said the justice, "on collecting the bill ?" "Because," she answered, "it was worth $ j to hold his dirty band." Strictly Temperate, Except (Fall-piny, Col., Flume.) On the sleeper of an L. F. and W. tram re cently a traveler noticed an old, white-bearded gentleman trying to get in a linen duster. The young and spry traveller rushed to his assist ance and in helping him with his garment no ticed a good-sizi'd whisky flask protruding irom one ot the inside pockets ot his coat. Being of a wagiish nature, he appropriated the bottle, got the coat on the stranger, and men puuing out a naak, saui: "Will you take a drink ?" i The old man did not recognize the bottle and, drawing himself up, remarked, rather severely: "No, sir; I never drink." ' ; "It won't hurt you," insisted the wag. "It's the best." "Young man," said the old gentleman, in tended for all in the car to hear, "if you per sist in drinking wmsky you will be a rulucd man at forty. It is the curse ot the land. When I was a boy my mother died, and the last tning sue uiu was to call me to ner bed side and say : 'John, swear to me that you will never loucn a drop oi liquor' " Here the old man clapped his band on his aide pocket, found it empty, and recognizing ine bottle in tue bands ot the otner, be con tinued : ' Except, my dear boy, an occasional 6nifter wnue traveling." And reaching for the flask he pressed it to bis lips, amid a bowl ot laughter which shook the whole car. That Roy ot Gallagher. The circumstances were as follows: Mr. Gallagher bad to take a train that left at six o'clock, so he arose about daylight to breakfast ana thought no had better put on some thick boots instead of the light shoes he wore in the evening. JNow.it seems that Uallagher s son bad worn the old man's boots while roller skating, and had left skates on the boots, and in the darkness Gallagher did not notice this fact as ho pulted the boots on, though he thought they telt heavy. He then groped his way to the head of the stairs, the skates mak ing no trouble on the carpet. Then he started down stairs. Ho got there dreadfully sudden. He was terribly annoyed as he picked himself up, and said very wicked things as he started for the dining room. Breakfast was laid, but only a dim light was burning. Immediately he set toot on the polished floor his feet flew into the air and his head came down with ter rible force. The wild yell that ho gave brought bis wife and mother-in-law in from the kitchen. He rose to his feet, but they im mediately started off in different directions, and after wrenching his spine and knee joints terribly in trying to control them, they got away, and he jarred the spinal column as he went down. "Landot gracious! this floor i. oiled," he roared, as he began to make efforts to rise. "Have you appoplexy or have you been drinking?" asked his wife, as he strove to assist him to get up. '.'You hold your jaw, you idiot!" he replied, and then she let go of nim sort of sudden, and down he went, bruis ing himself in six places. "Gosh," "rnnket," "drat," and "durn," were words called into re quisition to relieve his mind that time, and he told his mother-in law, who had fallen laugn ing into a chair, that he hoped sne would meet cows every time she went out. Then he es sayed to rise once more, and got npon his feet The skates began to slip, but he struggled like hero, and clutched the air wildly to Keep his balance. No use. As he fell forward he wild ly grabbed the table-cloth, and as a result yanked the entire breakfast down upon him. The hot tea scalded him, the pepper got into his eyes, the mustard into nis mouth, and the rgs all over him. ' His cries were fearful. hCS hauled him from the debris and started y put him to bed when they discovered the jllers. Mr. Gallagher was terribly used up, at he started at once to find his son, and the 3 signing over bis great griet was heard mcks away. ai ; . i The Small Hoy. A small boy leaned out of the rear third-story window of hia father's house in Brooklyn, yesterday afternoon, looking at the sky, and at times Dreading out wun ine song, "in tne North Bea lived a whale." His noise attracted his newspaper neighbor, who leaned out and said, "Well, Georgle, how are yon t" "I'se a prisoner locked np on bread and wa ter," Georgie replied, "just 'cause I didn't know it was loaded. You see, father was in the army, and last week when you heard him firm' off his pistols ha was shootln' at a cat. He shot five times, and the cat looked op and smiled when he got frou. Says I, 'Father did you ever kill a man when you was a sol dier?' thinning, you know, that he couldn't "shoot fur a cent, tie says, I a'pose so.' 'Wen,' ays I, 'you muster been close enough to bit him wita an ax;' and he sent me into the house. Well, I seed where he hid his pistol Id his overcoat, and yesterday I rot it out. ah' there was an accident.

They gave i bread n' water tor breakfast and wouldn't let me see a newspaper. So I thought I'd es cape. I tore up the two sneets, tied one end to the burean drawer 'n' was climbin' down like folks do at a fire, when somethin' gave way. I fell about a thousand feet, I thought, I come down so hard. I hit the stone area, 'n' it seemed to me as if it was meht and I was look in' at a million stars. I didn't know noth in' for a minute. Then I come to." "Whatbroke?"

' As the neighbor drew in his head the small bov began tho "uin-nan." and he was playing it when the reporter went away. Nete York A Fainter Incognito. (From "David Cox," by William Hill.) The narrator of this story had made a jour ney to Conway, for the purpose of sketching cottage interiors, ot which lie knew several fine subjects in the place. - Whilst he was sit ting one evening shortly alter his arrival in the parlor of the little inn, at which he had taken up his quarters, a stranger entered the rndtn funb- a ynaf Kir t Im fl m unrl finnn lmrran a conversation with our friend. They talked of art; and the stranger, who said be came from London and painted a little himself, inquired if there were any subjects ot picturesque char acter in that neighborhood on which he could try his hand. His dress was so peculiar and his general appearance so unlike that of a pro fessional artist out on a sketching excursion, tuat the narrator beueyed mm to do an ama teur painter a small tradesman, or clerk per haps in some city establishment taking his holiday, and bent on amusing himself by do ing a little sketching. He even thought it not impossible (tbe costume of the stranger was so odd and unsuitable tor rambling about in, and his manner altogether so remarkable) that the new-comer might be a tailor with artistic ten dcncies, from some West End house, on a trip In search ot health as well as the picturesque. It was not long before the stranger gathered that there were in the place some exceedingly fine cottage-interior subjects which he had come there to paint; and saying that he him- sell was very fond of subjects or the kind, asked if he might bo permitted to go and see them. On the following morning he was in troduced to a "splendid interior," which both agreed to paint ; and taking up their stations a little apart, they very soon began operations. The artist sketched his subject very carefully upon the canvas, laid out his colors, and put on a few tints here and there, just to feel his way ; and after working for about an hour, oc casionally looking over the top of bis picture towards his companion, who was sticking to his task apparently not much disturbed by the difficulties of his subject, he rose from his seat to ascertain how the "tailor" (as be thought him to be) was progressing. What was his astonishment on discovering that the "tailor" had nearly finished his picture, while his own was only a little more than commenced 1 And what a picture it was! Snch splendid color! so masterly in the handling! the drawing of every detail so perfect ! tho figures introduced wun such skin, ana the whole soetlectivei He was rendered quite speechless as he stood gazing at the marvellous work. At length he found words to exclaim, "Well, you hate as tonished met I did not think you could paint anything fit to be seen ! Why, you are a most able artist! May I inquire your name? The person addressed quietly responded, "My name isMuller." "Oh r replied the other, with a groan ot contrition, "why didn't you tell me that before? I took you for a tailor!" Tho New Orleans ricauune give a serious warning to practical jokem. At two o'clock on a recent morning a gentleman left his clnb in that city with a friend, and, tbe latter re turning for hia cane, the former concealed himself in the bottom of tbe big box that holds tbe balancing weight ot tbe elevator ami is called a "lift case." 1 he friend came back and went away disgusted at finding no trace of tho jolly joker.. Ine latter, as be entered the lifucase, had closed the door. - He tried to open it but could not, lor it opened without a key only from the outside, lie laughed heart ily to see the biter bit, until presently he heard a noise which he could not misinterpret The lift was slowly falling down from the fourth Door. He, in groping lor the door, bad pulled the rope which Bet it free. Death stared him in the face, for that immense mass of iron would inevitably crush him as flat as a pan cake, and by a slow torture that would make dying seem an agony of horrors. He became frantic with fear, tie flung himself against the door ot his life-case as only despair could do; he shrieked for help. His shrieks were beard by the Janitor, who fonnd him in a swoon and dragged him ont when the lift was only fifteen feet off. A physician was sum moned. Consciousness was restored. Tbe un fortunate gentleman sprang to his feet, scream ed incoherently with wild gestures. He was crazy. ' .

It appears that be came for fight, .and went down to the depot barroom and there filled up with forty rod whisky." He then, mounted a horse and rode straight into and through the depot. A shopkeeper who tried to stop him was struck over the head with a six shooter. Bond then dismounted, tied up his horse, and began to swagger around with a Winchester rifle in his left hand and a cocked revolver in the right until disarmed by a deputy United States Mar shal. He then drew his ttowie knife and pro posed to fight with that; but at this point bit lighting propensities were stilled forever by a deputy sheriff who appeared on the scene and, being threatened, discharged a load of buck shot into him. A coroner's inquest was held in a freight car, and then, says the IfeadligJU, "he was buried In ' Foot Hill Graveyard, the Rev. Robert Campbell sending him off in the Protestant boat."

Columbia avenue, Philadelphia, has a curi osity in the shape of a white sparrow, which cannot be caught, though a good price is offer cd for it. It was supposed at first to be a ca nary, bnt sparrows do not tolerate aliens. The white sparrow has made peace between two hostile tactions and reigns supreme over them. They seem to regard it as an envoy and pleni potentiary from the sparrow heaven. It usu ally occupies the centre of the feathered tribe while feeding on the ground. Its wings are long and more like those of the genns Chhella, which give it a decided advantage over its sub jects in. flying: It is a pretty sight to see such a large flock of dark-colored birds headed by a white one, and a number ot laaies in the neighborhood while away many pleasant min utes in watching and studying this apparently new member of the finch family.
