A St. Louis girl dislocated her neck in kissing another girl. A Texas paper publishes marriage notices under the head of " Lost." A rural paper remarks: " Cold nights have put a stop to gate sparking. If she doesn't ask you to come in now, you had better quit." A French Abbe apostrophizes as his ideal of perfect bliss, "one of your charming sinecures, with nothing to do but believe in God." Over the door of a cobbler's .shop in Savannah, Ga., appears this legend: " Boots and shoes is made hear ladies and gentlomens repaired." A Tennessee editor named Figures has subtracted himself from the staff df his paper, and his late patrons cipher bis departure from the town. The Golden Age newspaper referring to the increased call for school books in Brazil since emancipation, says that liberty and the spelling book are " one and inseparable." A certain Edinburgh professor once pronounced upon a student his severe opinion: "Dunce you are, and dunce you will ever remain." That student was Sir Walter Scott A clergyman at Council Bluffs charges by weight in marrying couples, the rate being four cents a pound for the groom and two for the bride. Why this distinc tion on account of sex? IJie following notice is stuck up on a bridge at Denver, Colorado: "No vehicle drawn by more than one animal is al lowed to cross this bridge in opposite directions at the same time." A country editor's sole editorial in one week's issue was that " If anything will make a man feel juicy about the heart, it is to talk velvet to a pair of sky colored eyes, by moonlight, in a clover field." A fellow feeling: Indignant Old Lady "Guard, do you allow smoking in this compartment f Ubliging Guard " Haw, weel, if nane o' the gen tleman object, ye can take a bit draw o' the pipe" Punch. New York belles fear their new ball dresses will be out of Rtyle before they Alexis. N. B. TLe French pronunci ation is necessary: Aleck tee, the same as Parree. All who have been to Yur rup will understand it. " You have lost your right arm," said George the III. to Lord Nelson, at his first interview after the accident. " But not my right hand," replied his lordship "as I have the honor of presenting Captain Berry to your Majesty." E. II. Morgan, jr., thus addresses Miss Mollie, in the New Orleans Times of the 5th inst.: And thou art mine! I never could have dr?amed That one so Door could win so rich a rem : For in my wild imaLriniDys 1 seemed loo mean to even kiss thy garment s nem. Miss Mollie ought to be ashamed of herself. Brigham Young thus interprets the Chicago fire: "We are God's chosen people. Be is working. A few weeks ago Chicago was destroyed. This is but as a drop of water to what will soon happen. We were driven from that State, and God, through his prophet, said they should not live there." One of the Amherst sophomores hxis devised a new way of telling bad news. lie writes to his father: "I came near losing thirty-seven dollars last week." Anxious parent writes back that he is thankful that the money was not lost, and wants to know " how near." By return mall, " Came within one of it lost thirty-six." AnEnglishman writes home to his news paper that in hight the Australian gum trees are confessedly pre-eminent beside their American rivals in California. He also slates that i.i the Yo-Semita "boots are not cleaned, and it is difficult to get the means of cleaning them." The Royal Geographical should keep this man traveling. In Belfast, Maine, Judge Kent, at the recent opening of the term of court, said that " the abominable practice of wearing hair on the upper lip is repre hensible." Whereupon the Belfast Jour nal remarks that " there are a great many ladies who agree with the learned Judge, and set their faces against them constantly." " Grant," said George Francis Tiain on Tuesday night, " is a small man, take him as you may. Approach him on the subject of tan-yards, and you caa't get him above a sheen-skin; try him on to bacco, and he may have something to say of short sticks; take him on stock, and all he knows is something about common plug horses." It is said that a Detroit girl, standing up to be married the other day, had to have her corset strings cut before she could " take this man to be her wedded husband " in the articulate terms neces sary to the completion of the ceremony. She was laced np to the last hole, and when the knife was applied, the crack of the parted lace was like the explosion of a kerosene lamp. A doctor lately informed his friends in a large company, that he had been eight days in the country. " Yes," said one of the party, "it has been an nounced in the papera." " Ah," said the doctor, stretching his neck importantly, "pray, in what terms?" "Well, as well as I can remember, in the follow ing: ' There were last week seventy-five deaths leas than the week before! Prentice Mulford, who is lecturing on the " Coming Woman," at San Fran cisco, says: "The comiDg collectreas of this port will own the best yacht in the club, and as she sits in her oOice, ia the female maritime costume cf the pe riod, arill command the respect and at tention of all around her. 8he will be the object of political cabals and in trigues, and will fight fire with fire. The coming woman will aim at position, and perhaps wealth, but will never be contented as the simple unnoticed mari tal appendage of man. She will be muscular, and will take her part against the street-corner loafers who now molest and offend her." M. Jules Richard, in a remarkable ar ticle in the Gaulois on the state of public opinion, asserts that the majority of Frenchmen don t seem to care what be comes of Frauce. "If the ex-Emperor," he br vs. " were to make another coup d'etat to-night, and dissolve the Chamber and issue one of his seductive proclama tions to morrow, what would be the an swer? Eh, dame! After all, we may as well have htm as any body else. At leant hn will civo ns order. I dare say he is not so bad as he is painted." Such is the reply M. Richard believes twenty nine ou, of every thirty Frenchmen would make. The Ritual Committee at the recent EoiscoDal Convention at Baltimore re commended, it may be remembered that no cross should be carried by cnil dren or others before the procession of choir or clerev entering the church at choral service. Crosses of any lasinou .nil in anv number might be used in or about the church, provided they were stationary; and they might be freely carried in nrocession outside the ctiurcti and to the door of the church; but into the church, or in the church, thoy should not he carried. On this recommenda tion a rittht reverend gentleman sug zests the processional hymn, which rparla: Onward. Christian soldiers, marching- as With the cross of Jesus coins on before," Ka ftltpMHl thus: ' "Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as Wlththeo'ross of Jesus left behind the door I' Alexander Dumas' play, La Visite des Noces, is being ventilated by the Puria nress on account of its shameless immorality. The France declares that if the public does not damn the play it ill ha comnelled to acknowledge that obscenity has conquered the stage of Pnris. The Patne calls it the most scandalous and cynical the author has over written. The Union says there is enoneh immorality in the one act of the nl.v in make a Zouave blush.' But the Figaro reasons thus: "You will say it :.:.n,,;u.iitiisi wife, a daughter a mother or a sister to see La Visite des Noces. T which I reply, do what is easier than taking them there don't do it! Hut how many books one would not allow bis wife to read I How many pic tures one could not show to bis daugh ter! And yet they are not less master pieces." Decline or Polysrasny. Salt Lake cor. New York Tribune.

The most wealthy and intelligent among the Mor mons) are quietly shirking the "religious Ai,tv" nf adilinir wives to the flock, and are seemingly inclined to risk their souls' salvation with only one wife. The voung people of both sexes are not u mna in .Hvinir that thpv don't believe in polygamy, and the more sensible of all classes concede that it is jar oeuer to have a small family and care for and it th.n to hrino into heinir a vast heard of boys and girls whose-j very numbers prectuae tne possiDiniy of parental direction and oversight.

Arrest Decay. When a plant or a tree be gins te decay it must die. It eannot be re vitalised. But it is not so with human beings. A human ruin can ba repaired, strengthened, restored, though a brown leaf or a withered bLade of grass eaa never be made green again. In the autumn of life, or even in its winter- when nature seems to be giving way under the pressure of years, it is still possible to re tard the progress of decay, and to lend to age mora than its wonted rigor. As a means of promoting this object, Hostetter'e Stomach Bitters is omiuestionably the most potent of all restoratives. It will not make" the old young, but it will prevent, lessen, or sooth the infirmities which are the usual accom paniments of the decline of life.. For debili'-y and a lack of nervous power, from whatever causa aieing, it Is the medicine that of all others before the world, best deserves the name of a sixct'aV. In purity, in invigorating properties, la iu adaptation to weak stomachs and fueble organisations, it has nooompetitor among the tonics of the pharmacopeia, nor among proprietory remedies. Besides its strengthening principle, it possesses altera tive and regulating properties of the highest Older, and as an anti-bilious medicine is far preferable to any of the preparations contain ing mercury. Time has shown that for physi cal dece,r. nervous debility, dyspepsia, bilious disorders, and intermittent fever, liostetler's Bitters is a remedy without a rival. T-is is the season of the fall of the leaf; let It re mind the old. the feeble, the sickly, to invig orate and regulate their systems with this great vegetable tonic and alterative.
