While standing in the office of one of our first class hotels, the other day, we noticed a gentleman who came in with his baggage, enter his name on the books, and secure a room. As soon as he had written his name, the clerk looked at it with astonishment.— He called on the other clerks to look, and then he called one of the proprietors, who, on seeing it, appeared amazed. We thought from the fuss that was Wing made over the name, that the man must be some celebrated person. The idea struck i us that it might he Prince Albert, or some of England’s noblemen, but, as his features i were truly American, we concluded it must be some great man, whom we did not know. I belonging to our own country. While thus contemplating the man and his position, the head clerk leaned forward, and called— ‘Mr. Johnson, one moment, if you please!’ The gentleman stepped up to the desk. ‘Will you/ continued the clerk, ‘please ex | plain one thing? We have all tried to deci pher it, but cannot make it out/ # ‘What is it?’asked the gentleman, with a (juiet smile plaving on his face. ! ‘Why, sir, at the end of your name on the book, you have placed three letters, P. L. B., and we are anxious to know the meaning of them, having never before met them in that position/ ‘P. L. B./ said the gentleman, ‘simply Patent Leather Boots. The last time I was here, I wore none other, but I was charged in my bill, at leaving, two dollars for black ing boots, and as I had no time to dispute at leaving, 1 concluded this time to make v«*u j understand that i wore such boots as needed no blacking. _ DRESS. A lady writes as follows:—Speaking of beautv. I wish people would ureas plea* ant!y, benevolently. I saw a lovely girl to-day, looking unlovely and unlovable, because her muslin dress was stitt v starch ed, to keep clean longer. My laundress tries to persuade me into the barbarous cus tom. To my mind, a woman should always look as soft to the touch as the dower, an<l as pure. All her garments should be made of the finest and softest material possible, material that will easily dispose itselfinto j folds, falling gracefully around her, and not, by being liable to be rattled every moment, j compel her to stiff attitudes and starched de meanor, denying her the luxury of lounge ami ' loll; why my very words would grow prim and precise, were I to wear a dress which , depended on Hour or potatoes for its pro ! priety. _ A SKNSIBLK WILL, j The following is the copy of a will left by ' a man who choose to be bis own lawyer: ! “This is the last will and testament of me, John Thomas.
