Why She Did It. Marriages between rich old men and young ladies of the '.'sweet sixteen" order are not remarkable events in the Eas tern States, but in the far West the-case is widely different. An affair of this kind took place recently, and the Rocky Moun tam-JMews sent a reporter to interview the young lady, with tne iollowinff result: f How came it,"- the reporter asked,-"that you wed a man so much "older than yourself?" W V ecause i love mm, was the. pert reply. "that is a reason, certainly. JJUt l Should have thought a la V . V - . . w dr ."so v beautiful would have chosen a youmrer mate." . .. .'jWould you?

Then I don't think there is any thing in the whole world so charming as a young widow, and such a thing is possible for me." , 'Ihen you are already count ing on the old man's death ?" "No, I am not counting on it exactly, but I live in hopcs,"and with a radiant smile the guile less thing went off to join the dancers. '- ' It is not necessary to pursue the subject further. Any one can see that there is something very bewitching about sweet sixteen. The Question of Age. The Mtthodist says in reply to a correspondent who asked the editor how he wrould like his daughter of 20 to marry a man of 40: "Well, in the first place, this is. the age of obedient par ents, and we may not have much to say about it If we do have word, we shall begin by ob jecting to her marrying at all, unless -unless this Rachel of ours loves her Jacob a great deal. We are not referring to pretty scntimentalism, but to the genuine, personal attachment which is the only safe reason for -. ' . m m -m -m marrying. - Alter that,we should prefer her husband to be at least 30 years old. Before that asre few young men have either a de fined character or an ascertained career; we should like our per fect girl to know whom and what she is marrying. As to her marrying that man when she is only 20, we should prefer her to.be older, say 25. Soberly, however, we" cannot cross the river until we get to it." .

There is one element in the home instruction of boys to which, says a Boston paper, too little attention has been given and that is the cultivation of habits of punctuality, system, order and responsibility. In too many fam ilies boys from twelve to seven teen are too much administered to by loving mothers or other female members of the family. Boys' lives during these years are the halcyon daysof their exis tence.'

A Village Sexton's Singular Expe rience While Digging a Grave. Toledo, July 2 From the village of Tecumseh, Michigan, are received the particulars of one of the most peculiar freaks of lightning lately recor ded. The village sexton, John O'Connelj, who has relatives in his city, was engaged in dig- ging a grave when one oi yes terday's thunder-storms1 came over. There was a blinding flash of lightning accompanied by an instantaneous report, as it seem ed, directly in the grave, and Mr. O'Connell found himself prostrated in the bottom of the .a grave, which was nearly com pleted. The whole surtace and 6ides of tho grave were plowed up, and he himself half buried in loose earth. He tried to rise, and was unable, and thought at first his lower limbs xvere sever ed from his body. They were completely bereft of feeling, and he had lost all use of the mus cles. Gradually, however, feel ing was restored, and he was a ble to rise, when he found both boots completely shattered and the lower parts of his trousers torn, but the rest of himself un injured. A general feeling of lassitude and weakness follow ed, but this soon passed off, and, equipped in new boots and pantaloons, he was soon as well a 9 lf ,he d "ever b,ee,n Snd trough a thunder and licrhtnin": machine.
