MIS SUPERIOR FOR THE FOLLOWING REASOSSl Its yearly Bales are larger than those of all other Sewing Machines combined. This fact alone is the surest test of its merit and superiority. It is an instrument of great versatility in its operations. It will hem, fell, braid, cord, gather, tuck more beautifully than any other machine in use, without bast ing or any preparation of the work. ; The " I.OCK STITCH ' which it makes is more durable and beautiful than any other, presenting the same appear ance on both sides of the fabric and will not ravel. It is also more economical,' requiring one-third i.kbs cotton than any otVer kind of stitch. Being thesame on both sides, it is not necessary to use tUeextremely fine sewing cotton required by ' those machines which make a stitch with a ridge on the under Bide, which can only be concealed by using thread Uo delicate and fine to bear ordinary wear. Its simplicity renders iU movements so easy that a. child can work it. It w almost noiseless in operation, and for speed and rapidity of motion excels all others, as has been demonstrated a thou sand times by competition. It possesses the very great advantage of carrying the work in the natural way from left to right which enables the operator to handle thewerk more readily and to sit upright; while machines which .1 1. 4Vr,M tio nnorutnrreflUll'e carry me - r , , ' an inclination of the body forward (detri mental to health) and are hard and tire some to use. 6 The prices are within reach of every one.

The Boston Transcript says the Knick erbockers, simple-minded, odd burghers, tradition says, were not over fond ol their Yankee neighbors, whose tricks of trade bothered them; and the Btorjr goes that the stockade, once extending from river to river, giving Wall street its name, was erected to keep off the cheat ing whites as well as the murderous In dians. However much of history or fic tion there may be in these tales, there is one instance on record of a ery decided prejudice against the neighboring col ony. A recent allusion in a New York etiurt 'to a curious testamentary provi sion led a gentleman to hunt up the doc ument. The prohibitory clause, though it may have been published before, will bear re-printing: Extract from th Will of Lewis Morria. Re corded in the Surrogate's office. New lork, .

"It is my wish that my son Gouver neur shall nave the best education that can be furnished him in England or America; but my express will and direc tion are, that under no circumstances shall he be sent to the colony of Con necticut for that pnrpose, lest in his youth he should imbibe that low craft and cunning so incident to the people of that country, and which are so interwo ven in their constitution that they can hot conceal it from the world, thoagh many of them, nnder the sancti6ed garb of religion, hava attempted to impose themselves npon the world a koaeat ues." 1 Pl'H'IVV''- MEMPHIS, TENN.;' MARK TWAljr.a I'I'St 4 111 Mil.

This was tny first meetihg' with Mark Twain. 1 had seen big portrait in tho Galaxy, and it gave me an insane idea of the humorist. recollect, when - 1 was . a boy, that'the enterprising Mon sieur Dorluille in bin muueum at Cincin nati, had the head of a murderer named HooreR, who had been Tery ' properly banged, preserved in a Jar ot alcohol, and on exhibition., , Thia woodcut of Mark. Twain looked to me mora . like Hoover's head than anything else, and was entirely unlike the countenance that beamed on us last night. Ooe would not pick Mark out from a crowd as a humorist ; indeed one would not venture to tuck him out as a literary character at all. He looks more like a member of the ' Ohio Legislature (if you know what that is) than anything else.' Thut is a sort.-' of man, ,' who? had narrowly escaped being made a County Commissioner, and ao was re turned Ho ! the Legislature. - 1IA il not only careless about his clothes, but he is positively ignorant on the subject, and LiborR under the impression that the gar ment that hangs so loosely upon his shoulders is a coat. ' From under his bushy hair, bit face peers out. presenting a square, well-proportioned forvhead, keen gray eyes and hooked nose, a well developed mouth, exhibiting a good deal VI UVUIfllUII, UMU VUIU Hi., tuwtiua muu. supporting the whole, iu no part of which will you find.' a particle ot the humor for' which be is distinguished. His face, on the contrary, is a sad one, and when all are in roars about him he continues in a state of deuse solemnity. His voice is the most extraordinary voice I ever heard. It ia a cross between Horace Greeley and Tim Lincoln. He drawls his words out in the most prepos terous manner, that gives a drollery to what he says utterly beyond description. It is Quite imnossible tor mm to pro duce in his conversation a serious efiect. The exceedingly droll quaintness of his solemn countenance, added to the drawl of his voice, makes one laugh when the speaker is really striving to be serious. For example: I had said to him that a contract to be funny at regular intervals struck me as rather heavy, and he replied by say ai that wag so; while he might bo lufliciently interested to raise a laugh, when left to himBclf, it became dreary stuff when brought out in that manner on contract. '."Only think," said he, "I knew that confounded thiDg had to be done, and, with a Hear friend lying dead before me, and my wife half distracted over the loss, I had to get off my articles so as not to disappoint my publishers, and when I sat down with a board and a knife, to engrave that map of IariR, I did so with a heuvy heart, and in a house of amentation. Mow this was rather a sad picture, and he meant to impress me with the sorrow he had felt, but yet it required the greatest struggle on my part to refraiu from laughing as I heard it. 1 felt ashamed of myself afterward, for God knows there is no wit or humor in that unhappy story, nor did Mr. Clements mean there Should be, and yet like the L'homme qui rit, the effect is always there. , I am told by those who know him well that he is a very kind-hearted fel low. , He hns generous impulses, and a irentle.- patient nature. We i had an illustration of his affection, for unfor tunately in the midst of the dinner he received a telegram 'telling him of the sickness of his wife, and he was forced to leave upon the next train. Mr, Barry Gray,' a gentleman who has written some of the most beautiful and quaintest poems of the day, left with him. This blank at the table brought our dinner to an abrupt termination. ' I was very sorry, not only On account of the cause for Mr. Clement's leaving, but the lost opportunity for becoming 1 better ac quainted with him,. Regarding Mark Twain as a man equal to Hood, and one whose humor is producing so marked an effect upon our literature, I was anxious to know him personally. He and Bret Harte are the two men of all others one would go the greatest distance to look into and study. .... .,' . i i aa 11 THE ; DIPLOMATIC COMMISSION Tba Hen Who Are t Nettlo til Ala- ....

Tha Social KQiitlua la Waahlng;ton. - A recent Washington letter says ; So ciety here is on the rampage. No ad equate idea can be given to your steady going, sane Cincinnati people of the wild social excitement and insanity now dom inant here. Balls, receptions, private theatricals, Germans, dinners, suppers, banish, apparently, all sleep. How these fair delicate girls go through it all, and live, I do not understand. A beautiful young girl from Philadelphia, who is spending the winter here, stated to us, last evening, that she had been to two or three receptions or parties every night during the week, and had never retired before four o'clock in the morn ing; that she always got up between nine and ten o'clock, so as to get her breakfnst and be ready to receive by eleven o'clock in the morning. And this, she said, was a fair averago of her life during the winter. How little sense the parents and guardians of these grown children have I What, think you, is the legitimate and natural result of all this dissipation, this wild excitement, these late suppers of indigestible food, this rushing from warm rooms into the oold night air, with neck exposed or thinly covered, with bare arms and paper-slippered feet T Following in the wake of it all are the gaunt specters of lingering disease or sudden death. Hay Chrlatlaaa aja to tba Theater? Rer. J. F. W. Ware, pastor of the Church of Our Savior, Baltimore, de livered a very sensible and broad-spirited sermon recently on the subject, " May I go to the Theater?" Among other things he said: "The more Christians go to the theater the more Christian will it be. If we all endeavor to raise the social tone, to encourage a grand art, and make its noblest impersonations wel come and desirable, we shall be doing the best thing we oan, for it, for our selves, for the public make it sure that in the incoming future the theater shall stand side by side, hand in hand with the press and the pulpit in the elevation of popular taste and the teaching of Christian morality." tiilly Kauine should make a note ot such excellent views ol the stage. There is at present in Montreal a widow of twenty-two who is the mother of nine children. She was married at sixteen, and before her seventeenth birth dny presented her lord with twins; the following year she produced at one birth three boys; the next year she had twins, and repeated the performance the fol lowing year making sine children, the oldest being barely roar. The children are all living and doing well. "i-"i 1 8TOVES. Great Excitement ' ..t- .!. , :.t , ' OVBB TUB WOXDBRTOt SOCCISS Oa r , BUCK'S BRILLIANT Cookin Stoves !
