A gas bill lay on a table green the Dretueat gas bill ever was seen ; patri cian was It, puffed with pride ;it reooeed with ease on its paper side, a pink young thlDg with a margin wide. IhehVures on it in row make a stunningly haad some little show;they were four In cum ber, small and sweet, the coat of many a thousand feet. You may wager your ail tbey were mere complete. ii. A plumber's bill on a mantel near looked down on the sheet with a covert sneer ; it dryly said :u You look so queer, panel out in your pride wane I am here! Real) j, now, were it worth my while, I'm not quite sure but I'll try to smile I am away above you can't yon see you are ne account by tbe side of me?" A wrangle ensued between the two, as troubles from pride will otten brew. in. An Ice bill grinned ss it watched the fun, not seeming to care for either one ; it glanced at botn as tbey fierce ly swelled, and then remarked that it felt compelled to lnterlere in the quarrel there, and frowned on each with a sav- sge glare. "You quarrel for the fore most place," it said, with a sneer on its clammy lace: "Ine summer's coming and then you'll see wnere beta ot you stand by the side oi me." . "Lampasas Jake," the cowboy evan gelist, who Is holding revivals iu New Mexico, can beat 8am Jones as a vernac ular preacher. Here is an extract from one of his sermons : "IIow many of yau'a ready to die now with your boots on t Wbere'd you be to breaKfast t Don't any of you drunken, swearing, fighting. blaspheming, gambling, thieving, tin horn, coffin-paint, exterminating galoots look at me ugly, because 1 know ve I've been there.

The following item is going the rounds of tbe state press, publishers talc. Ing it for granted that it is the truth : "Waldo Wooster of Emporia has been convicted of burglary and sentenced to two years In tne penitentiary." Mr. Wooster la the popular deputy sbentt ot this county and frequently bandies bur glars, but doesn't do anything in the burglary line himself. "Egg sociables" are now popular in the east. Each young lady attending the sociable brings an egg along, writing her name on it. Each young man draws one of the egga out of a bag and must act as an escort tor tbe yonng lady whose name la inscribed on the egg he draws Particular care is taken to have the egg boiled hard. The difference between the eastern and west ern "egg sociable," judging from this account of the former, is striking. In the west tbe first requisite to an "egg sociable" is some man who will make a speech and take the intense ly unpopular side of tne Question. No young ladies are necessary, bnt the men attending a sociable each take an egg along. Tbe egga are never boiled, and never new, and do not haye the names of the donors written on them. Tbey are not drawn from a bag, but from tbe pocket, each man drawing his own egg. He then presents it for tbe orator, generally letting It go at an angle of about 45S. The popularity of these "egg sociables" has long been main tained in some localities. A young married lady, who moved into this country from a city home, con sidered keeping bens a profitable duty. As she became more absorbed in the pursuit her entuhsiasm increased, and "neea" made a favorite subject of her thoughts and conversation. During one of her animated descriptions of success a friend inquired : "Are your hens good bene?" "O, yes," she replied in a de. lighted tone, "they haven't laid a bad egg yet." . - - Parents should not blame their boys for not being able to answer simple Questions in business calcula'ions, be cause they are not included in the text book, and consequently not taught la the school. -It is a deplorable fact that a teacher's only duty, and a scholar's only strife, ia to pass examination for promo tion, regardless of what is required after school days are ended.

Our reporter in company with the couutv commissioner, county clerk. mayor and other prominent gentleme witnessed an exhibition of Moore's Pa tent Road Grader on Monday afternoon. The machine is very simple in construc tion and needs only to be seen to be un derstood. Tbe spot ... selected ' fo the exhibition was Logan avenue, in the suburbs of the . city, the soil ot which, is rumorel to be very tough gumbo. The work commenced about 9 a. m and the first thing done was cutting a ditch on the side of the road, the blade being set at the angle to act as a plow, cutting about three times as much dirt as an ordinary 14 inch plow and throwing the same towards the center of tbe road. Alter sufficient ditching was done, the blade was then adjusted to such an aDgle as to act as a road grader; still moving the dirt to the center of the road, and in five hours completed a well-graded road a fourth of a mile long, twenty-seven feet wide with a grade of eighteen inches. Six farm horses were used to draw tbe machine, two persons to drive and one to manage the grader. The gentlemanly agent, Allen (i. Lamson, spared no pains to describe the machine to the visitors present, and for the benefit of those who had not seen tbe first ot the work, ordered a ditch cut in ordinary soil. He took but moment to ad j usl tbe blade, and tbe team walked off, leaving behind a deep straight ditch, ). E.

MONEY TO LOAN ON REAL ESTATE SECURITY, WITn OR WITHOUT COMMISSION A larmer had sixty eggs, thirty of the largest of whichhe placed in one basket and sold at the rate ot two for a cent, while the remaining thirty he sold from the other basket at the rate of three for a cent From the first basket he realized fifteen cents and Irom the second ten cents, a total ot twenty-fiyecenta. When he next went to market be thought as three eggs for a cent and two eggs for a cent was the same as five eggs f o two cents, he would not bother to sort his eggs over, but would put tbe sixty eggs in one basket and would sell them at the rate of five for two cents, as he assumed he had done on his previous trip. He did so, but found when he came to reckon up bis reecipis that he had realized only twenty-fnur cents Irom them instead of twenty-five cents, the amount received when he sorted them oyer and sold them twa tor a cent and three for a cent.

In competition for a prize an English' lad offered the following essay on Co lumbos: "Columbus was a man who could make an egg stand on end without breaking it. The king of Spain said to Columbus: 'Can you discover America V 'Yes,' said Columbus, 'if you will give me a ship. So be had a ship, and sailed over the sea in the direction where hel thoeght America might be found. The sailors quarrelled and sard they believed there was no such place. But after many days tbe pilot came to him and said, 'Columbus, I see land.' 'Then that is America,' said Columbus. When tne ship got near, the land waa full ol black men. Columbus said, 'Is this Amer ica r 'Yes, it is,' said they. Then he said, I suppose you are the niggers T 'Yea,' they said, 'we are.' The chief said, 'Isuppoeayoo are Columbus?

PoatAge Sixty Years Ago- "Walton's Register" for the year 1828 shows that there were 163 post-offices in Vermont at that time, and that about $20,000 was annually paid on the pos tage of letters, papers, and pamphlets by the citizens of Vermont. The com pensation of the postmasters was on the basis of 30 per cent on the first $100 of receipts and 25 per cent on the next $100. Brattleborough was then the largest office in the State. The salary of Asa Green, the postmaster, was b 30.8a. The rates of postage were: For a single letter of one piece ox paper lor any dis tance not exceeding 30 miles, $ cents; over SO and not exceeding 80 miles, 10 cents: over 80 miles and not exceeding 150 miles, 12 cents; over 150 and not exceeding 400 miles, 18 cents; over 400 miles, io cents, letters composed oi two pieces of paper were charged triple rates, and more than three pieces quad ruple postage. The highest salary paid any of tbe 4,uuu postmasters in tne United States was then $2,000. and there were only 10 who were paid that sum, while 27 received f 1,000 and up ward. The population of the State was about 235,749, an increase of 17,835 in 10 years, of which 50,951 persons were engaged in agriculture. 776 in com merce, and 4.484 in manufactures.

Are We Losing Our Teeth? j.ne alternative as to wnetber man was created or developed can no longer be raised, now tbat we are exercising the free use of our reason. Man's den tition baa to be judged from our ex periences made in tbe mammalian group. Hence, first of all, it is a re duced dentition. True, we do not know tbe definite stages by which it was attained in man, any more than we do in the case of the anthropomorphoids, and all tne other apes ol tne Old World. but we shall not hesitate to maintain to at tne ancestors 01 man possessed a fuller number of teeth, as long as deduc tions are justined troni tne observation of facts. Our teeth have decreased in number during the course of our geo-logico-zoological development; we have lost on either side, above and below, two incisors, two premolars, and one molar. By this we transfer ourselves back to those periods from which the jaw of the otocvon has boen preserved.

This trick or vice is generally the effect of nervous timidity, resulting from an excitable temperament. It is aggravated by improper handling. To punish a horse for shying Introduces a new cause 01 rear, xne norse will be more alarmed and show more tokens of sear at the prospect of a whipping than at the imaginary object of daneer in the road. - Hence one bad habit is con firmed by the introcdoction of another. It is impossible to whip terror out of 1 horse or pound courage into one. Kind ness ana gentle persuasion are the best weapons to correct tne Dermeious habit of shying. Tbe less fear exhibited by tne anTer, ana tbe less notice taken of the shying by using harsh means, the sooner it will be given up. A careful. experienced norse man can generally detect an object likely to cause a ner vous horse to shy. and by word or touch will encourage him to pass it un noticed. When this fails, give him time to look at the object of fear; pat him ana coax mm up to it. then take him past it two or three times, till he takes no notice 01 it.
