Ran On the porch of Mr. Everson's fine residence in.M ,on a beauti ful evening about sunset, stood Juliu Everson,a beautiful young lad, with deep blue, lustrous eyes, and Francis Rowley, a tall handsome young man, his face glowing with health and his de portment that of a perfect gen tleman. "Your father," said Francis, addressing Julia, "is as deter mined as ever, I suppose, about this anair of of marriage?" His look was averted from her while he pronounced the words. "Determined I" Julia Everson 1 TTTi cxciaimeu: "vny papa is so bent upou my becoming Mrs. Upjohn, that he would die of rage, I think, were my resolu tion known to him " "And that resolution is, Ju lia " "To give Mr. Upjohn plainly to understand that the times we live in are not those which tol erate the alliancing of two chil dren in their cradles, merely be cause their pa re n't 8 happen' 'to befriends.

A Heathen Burial. . New York World. The body of Ah Sing, one of the colony of Chinese laundry- men at Belleville, JN. J., was buried with peculiar ceremony last Monday. 1 1 is fellow-coun try men had ordered a hearse with particular instructions that it be decorated with "chickee felle" (chicken feather) plumes. The hearse is an innovation at Chinese funerals. As the bodv was borne into the Chinese quar ters, show money, consisting of pieces of brown paper, bearing Chinese characters, was scatter ed.

Sixteen years ago 1 11.1 1 was bankrupt; and now ne is the owner of the richest silver mine that has ever been discov ered. There is, therefore, hope or all the penniless boys in 'ould Ireland."

Already the capitalized value of his property is set down at 55,000,000 sterling, against the modest 16,000,000 of the Duke.

"Han&Around the Washrag." Cincinnati Gazette. Here is a story vouched for by an estimable lady of Mount Auburn. A few days ago her attention was attracted to the singing of a hymn tune in front of the house by a number of children. Hie words struck her as a little bit out of the ordinary style. She listened and plainly caught this refrain, wThich was repeated ad libitum: "Hand around the washrap, Hand around the washragl" Her curiosity was excited. She asked the tuneful choir whence came the song. "Sun day school," was the answer. Were they positive? Oh yes; they sang it nearly every Sun day. It was an awful nice song. Would they repeat the next line after that describing the per formance with a washrag! They did, and the lady, who is famil iar with Sunday school music, recognized a so-called hymn which, in accordance with the namby pamby style of the Sun day school songs of to-day, has an oft reiterated refrain which runs: "Rally round the watch word!" This, in the minds of the little ones, had been transla ted into "Hand around the wash-j A 1 - ! )ii rag. Ana nowT, query isn 1 there more sense in the children's version than in the original?'

During the administration of Tacon, from 183-1 to 1838, smug gling and piracy had grown so bold in and about Cuba as to defy the Spanish Kavy sent to suppress the outlaws. Their leader was a man named Marti, and for his person, dead or a live, the Governor-General of fered a large reward.

Occasionally a man gets his foot caught in a railway track as a train is nearly due. He doesn't try to save the boot. He takes his knife and cuts it off to release his foot. A woman in Derby caught her dress on the track just as a train was coming along. Did she give the dress a pull and release herself? Xct at all. That would have torn the cloth. She bent down and tried to loosen the place, but not succeeding in time, drew her body back from the rail as far as the dress would permit with out tearing, to wait until after the cars went by. But their speed was so great that the force threw her against a bank, cut ting a deep gash in her head, bruising her hotly, and worse than all, tearing the dress. Turkish Clemency to Vermin. A Turkish family often re move from one set of apartments to another in order to escape the fleas and other vermin. The in sects take up their abode be tween the badly-jointed planks and under the nigs. They in crease and multiply, because the Turks are unwilling to destroy animal life. A lady, familiar with Turkish manners, tells the following story of the. Turk's clemency toward fleas: I was once visiting at the house of a Pasha lately arrived at Adrianople. The Hanoun, a charming woman, was complain ing bitterly to me Of her rest having been much disturbed the previous night by the abundance of these creatures in her apart ment. One of the slaves modestly re marked that she had occupied herself in scalding the floor of the room her mistress had slept in, and expressed a hope that she would not be longer trouDieu m that respect. A general outcry against the slave's want of humanity was raised by all the women present, and a chorus of "YuzukI Gu nah!" (Pity! Sin!) was heard. It is curious that they raised no such outcry when they heard of the frightful destruction of human life that took place a few years later among their Chris tian neighbors in Bulgaria, but a few miles from their own se cure homes. i A clergyman in Pittsburg lately married a lady with whom he received the substantial dow ry of $10,000, and a fair pros pect for more. Soon afterward, while occupying the pulpit, he gave out a hymn, read the first four stanzas, and was reading the fifth, Forever let my grateful heart His boundless grace adore, when he hesitated and exclaim ed, "Ahem! The choir will o mit the fifth verse," and sat down.
