Still, it is debilitating enough. It killed

A number of gentUmen met the other evening
at the Stuben House, in the Bowery, New
York, for the purpose of organizing a Society
of "Fools." The members composing this
foolish society belonged to a German Glee
Club, called the "Oalonla," and It teems all
the members are determined to turn tha "Ca
laoia't into a colony of "Fools" for the ensuing
carnival season. There never ha been a So
eiety of "Fools" In New York before; but there
has been at Cologne for some ' time. The
"Fools" were attired in peeuliar costume,
wearing trl-oolored Fool's'1 caps with bells.
In the rear of the saloon was a tribune erected,
wherf the German tri-oolor, the banner if tha
"Colon la," and the American flag was dis
played. In front of the tribune was a red
pulpit, made out of an empty wine oask, turned

Nino TO SI ill Last or tbi Pnr-ia
Apropos of the Pope, there is, and has been
for years, a ourloua tradition in Italy that
Plus the Ninth would be the last Pope, and,
in illustration of this, I will reseat an anee
dote related to me by a friend of mine. - Sev
eral years ago, in the Pontificate of Gregory
XVI, this gentleman was in the Cathedral
of Siena, looking at the . busts of tbe Popes,
whloh are placed after deaths, in a niche de
voted to that purpose. Two empty nlohes
tben alone remained. ''Why," said my friend,
"there is only room for two more busts,- yon
will have to make some niohes for those of the
futore Pope." "Ob, no, eignore," replied
thecioerone, i'fthey say after these two we
shall never have any more Popes." Gregory's
bust now stands in one of these niches; the
other is, I believe, still empty.
Niw aid InoMion RisoiLitv. An Eng
lishman named Samuel Smith, in New York,
being thrown out of employment as a coaoh
mae, resorted to the following plan to raise
the wind: Glanoing his eyes over tbe papers
he would carefully note the applicants for
positions as housekeepers, chambermaids, and
the like, drop, in at the assigned plaoe for
calling, engage the applioant forthwith, get
her to pack up her effects, accompany him to
a ear depot or steamboat landing, and prepare
to enter upon her duties at onoe as a house
keeper or chambermaid at his residence in a
suburb town. Arrived at the depot or steam
brat landing, as the oaae may be, he would
send the engaged party with a note to some
person doing business, near by, and in the
meantime dodge off with tbe absentee's trunk
and other baggage.

AitasL Wohsh. Angel is one of the most
extravagant words whloh love applies to
woman; and the mad kind of love whioh nses
suoh strong epithet, generally la the soonest
to cool down into a chilling indifference.
Erasmus almost inhumanly says, "The angel
that we have loved with the most amorous
folly, becomes in time an old devil that we
detest." But still the Idea is not to be ridi
culed that tbe fondest, intensest love sees in
its dear object ail the graoes and charms of
angels; and it depends upon the purity and
truth of the one that loves, as muoh as the
one that is loved, to say how long the sweet
religion of the passion shall last.
' Lcckrow Diamonds. A recent letter from
Pari says: By the arrival of the Bombay mail
oame hither a Mr. Amunn, having for sale a
considerable parool of diamonds, some of them
quite extraordinary for size and importance.
He has disposed of a few, the price ranging
from 1,000 to 15,000. An uncut brilliant
or unusual magnitude he hai, refused to cart
with for seven million francs, and stands out
tor ozu,ouo, which ir be can't get in Pari he
carries the gem to Amsterdam or St. Peters

Thi Orioir or Pianos. The piano-forte,
that favorite parlor instrument, now consid
ered an almost Indispensable artiole in every

J. 0. Sohroder, of Dresden, In 1717. The
square piano was made first by Frederloa, an
organ builder of Saxony, about 1758. ' Piano
fortes were made in London by M. Zempio, a
German, in 1780. The manufacture of this
instrument was commenced in this country
sinoe the opening of the present century. .
Slavs La bob im tbi Sosth. It is a com
mon practice for tbe planters at the South, by
way of rewarding the industry of their slaves,
to parcel off to them small portions of land on
their plantations, and give them (the slaves)
the privilege of cultivating these grounds,
after they have performed a reasonable day's
work for their masters, who, in many eases,
purchase from, them their little crops at the
market prises.
