death rate is, at the very lowest estimate,
400 a day. Since 1858 there has been no
hot season so fatal as the present to Enro

At Gwalior the deaths are. frpm sixty to a
hundred a day mid Sepree, BhopaThftrl 8c

seems, indeed, to be steadily inarching
along the Agra'road to Bombay.« At Indore
the native ltajab has mado tbo goqpje^ffer

Au Astonished Court
A few days ago, says the New Orleans
Picayune, an old lady and a young bne
/ouud themsdlves in Court, charged with
disturbing the,peace... The officers state
ment was clearly given,-and certainly dis
closed, an equal culpability in both. It was
evident, however, that the Court inclined a
favorable judgment to the youngest, and
the, scales of justico were rapidly tipping in
li6r favor:
"Wiiy .didyon abuse this young lady?"
.the .magistrate demautlcd of the old one.
"I had right to!" was tbo calm reply.
"What was she eloing?"
,, f'iteepmg compauy with a very improper
character."
"Anel what is that to you?"
"Sho'smydanghter."
"Oh, indeed! and you thiiuwihe {totaqn
was an improper character?"
"I elo, sirf"
(^•"Do yon know who he was?''
"I dou't know nis name. I've seen him
frequently prowling around after night."
And then, as if actuated by a sudden im
pulse, tbe old lady adjusted her spectacles,
peered cautiously at tho Court from under
her fieat sundioilnot, and then exclaimed:
"Good lack good luck Why, you're
tUo-i man I"
"Alo!,inc'" cvlaimed tho astonished
Court.T "Me, womau did you say me?"
Again the spectacles wore adjusted, and
tho curious gaze prolonged, while the old
lady nodded her head at iutervars.
"Yes, yes( it's the same ugly face. I'm
sure of it but I'll forgive you this time—
I'll forgive yon." And the old lady hobbled
away, leaving tho Court gasping with as
tonii.luneiit, and unable to interpose an ob
jection to her departure.
