J FACTS AJiD FANCIES. It is awkward to make a mistake in kicking a fellow who is down, and find he isn't down at all. At a recent sale of rare coins an American dollar of the year 1804 is said to have been sold for $700. A Chicago man, just elected to the Legislature, has absconded. The pros pect was too horrible for him to contem plate. Perry Carson, all dressed up in bis new clothes, yesterday called at Esch's for a "ten cent cigar, sahl" "Would yon have it strong or mild?" "Well, boss," said Perry, " not too strong or too mild; one dat's about pro rata." If you girls really must make Christ mas presents to your bachelor friends, give them something else than slippers. A flannel bag that will hold a hot flat iron, and won't be kicked off easily after a fellow gets in bed, isn't a bad idea. " Is your intended husband in bis con versation and carnage a consistent Christian?" asked a clergyman of a young lady who was soon to be married. In bis conversation he is very pious in deed, but I never saw him in his carri age," wag the innocent reply. A lady teacher inquired of the mem- bers of a class of juveniles, if any of them could name the four seasons. . In stantly the chubby hand of a Ave year old was raised and promptly came the answer, "pepper, salt, vinegar and mus tard." A weekly paper in Illinois describes the editor of the other paper as a "blear eyed hitching post, a goat-faced gunny sack, a wart-eared bung-hole for a cider btrrel, and a plaster cast for the poop deck of a canal boat." There must have been a dearth of society news that week. The other day a drove of one thou sand turkeys passed through Barre, Vt., driven like so many sheep. When night fell, all would, by general consent, leave the road and take to the fences, and their drivers had to wait till morning, for they could get them no further. The easiest and simplest remedy for chapped hands is found in every one's kitchen, and is nothing more than com mon starch. Reduce it to an impalbable ponder, put it in a muslin bag, and keep it in the table drawer. Whenever you take your hands out of the dish-water or suds wipe them dry with a soft towel, and while yet damp, shake the starch bag all over them and rub it in. The effect is most agreeable. For a highly original method oj punishing young lady pupils commend us to Herman Summers, of Peekskill. He has been arretted for violently bit ing the ear of one of his girls, and he is said to have been in the habit ot biting his pupils' ears after scolding them, for some time. If remonstrated with, he would laugh and say that he would as soon eat a good square meal of girls ears as of anything else. The "bell punch," invented to keep car conductors honest, has been beaten. Two kinds of spurious bells have been made and sold to imitate the " true ring." One of these is carried in the palm of the left hand, and the other up the sleeve. Several conductors have been found using these articles, one of whom confessed that he kept two bank accounts. The companies will have to try again ingrained or confirmed dis honesty is bard to beat. - When, more over, men with two or three aliases are found as conductors in the New York Third avenue cars, it is a pretty good sign that there is something wrong. Brooklyn Argus. The dead letter office in Washington and every large city office collects the mobt curious museum of miscellanies, for the postoffice is a kind of parcel ex press, as well as a carrier of correspond ence. The visitor will see yarn stock ings and littie shoes, and small boxes, and even little fruit trees, with myriads of other things, retained for want of proper postage. The postal rates are such that dead weight can be sent by mail for just half the rate at which you can tend a book. Almost the entire bullion of the Pacific passes through the mails. Mr. Dawes, who tells us these facts, says that a friend of his was in a postal car when the mail bag was opened, and out rolled from it a huge bolt. It was on its way from Springfield, in Massachusetts, to some large machine works in Ohio, and its passage in the mail cost only ten cents. . . Evening Papers. From the New York Star, 27th alt. The Brooklyn Union has suspended its morning paper and will herealter rely on its afternoon editions. Every itep in the facilities forgathering and transmitting news works to the advantage of the afternoon as against the morning paper. If people can read the history of the day in the evening, they will not wait till next morning to do so. All advances in mechanics and science that mcke it possible to do more in the same iparje of lime, is that much towards the day when the afternoon will entirely supersede the morning paper. Anothur reason for the greater success of after noon papers, when they are up with the requirements of the ace, is that the op portunity for reading them is much t'.-U ...1 . .r,. !.. rreat ' ... ..""T"l"' -"." it is fresh, or not at all.
