A low dnvs nizo Christian's grand jury indicted several dealers of faro, and Saturday afternoon the caso ot Henry Waito was called. J lie judge had heard some ol the testimony. when ho suddenly said to himself, "What, is the came of faro, anyhow? It must, bo verv entieins." and turn ing to Mr. John Nellings, one of the witnesses, said, "Will you show the court and the iury how faro is played?' Mr. Nellinus replied that ho would wii.li ole.asure. "i'hon all the para nhernalia of a faro bank was brought into the eourt-rottiii and set, before t judge. Tho green baize , was spread and the lay-out. The lack, the deck, the dealing, et?., were, carelully ex plained. The uiisophistocated tuclgi and the " intelligent .iury" seemed greatly iuterc.-toJ in the details, uud looked first at each other, then at tho dealer. Mr. Nellings grew enthusi astic in his work, and the lookers-on outside of the bar may have imagined they were in the presence of the tiger. Judge Christian asked the iury if they understood it. They said they did. The table was then withdrawn and tho case continued till Monday. A t omstock Idj 1. Virginia (Nov.) Chronicle. Early this morning one of Virginia's proudest citizens was observed taking some gentle exercise with a bucksaw and a pita of wood. The snow was about two inches deep, and the atmos phere just bracing enough to render exertion enjoyable ; but. strange to say, the expression on his face was anything but of pleasure. He paused for a few moments; rested his elbow on his knee and remarked, thought fully : " Well, 1 don't think Becoher was quite right when he allowed there was no hell. There moughtn't hev bin afore woman kum along, like the valley fever, to play the dashed blanked deuce with us. What cood is a woman anyhow that lays in bed till ten o'clock and makes her husband do Chinaman's work, like this, I'd like to know?" He was evidently getting angry. He wiped his damp forehead with a red handkerchief and cast wistful glances in the direction of the woodshed. " Now, thars Jake Smith next door. What a nice time Jake has a layin' in bed and takin' his comfort like a Christian. Ah! that wife of Jake's is an angel. She's up with the sun gcttin' things ready, a-choppiu' wood and -sweepin' round and a-lixin' up a nice cup ot coffee for Jake, to take to him in bed. Ah, well ! we can't all be happy." And the poor man slowly wiped away a crystal tear that de pended from his nose. " Why, there's Jake's wife now and I'm blest if she ain't starting opposi tion agin me nt the wood sawin'. If I'd met her afore I did the ole woman Good morning, Mrs. Smith," as a mild-eyed little woman cautiously peered over the fence. " Good morning, Mr. Wilson," re sponded the lady in a tone of commis eration. "And how do you feel today?" "Not a doin well at all, Mrs. Smith. The rheumatics is a gettin' worse in my jints and this open-air exercise don't do mo no good nohow. I 'spose I'm not long l"or this world," and he willed away another tear. ' Poor man I " sighed the little wo man, " I brought you something that might, warm you up a little. 1 took it out of Jake's demijohn. If he knew it he d half kill inc. saying whiclr she handed him a small black il.uk. Mr. ilsou s eves crew moist, al. though his throat was dry. liou bless ye, ma am, but vure an angel. If they were all like you there d be no hell, sure enough." A gurgliii'? sound followed and a peaceful calm seemed to have settled upon the neighborhood. dav: .1 . 1 - 11 . n i.t,,,. mis, my larcwcu uiuum i jvm bachelor existence, be cherished as tho true tone of a sinccro heart.

The lady left tho bank convinced that the money was safe, becauso as sho thought, she had seen it. Perhaps tho most ludicrous incident occurred in the Bank of Eng land. A person who had a deposit in the bank became ahirined as to the sol vency of the institution, and "pro tected himself" by draying out tho amount in bank notes! He is prob ably a lineal descendant of one of the Irishmen who, desiring to be revenged on an unpopular banker, bought up and destroyed his notes. Ono very comical incident is reported from Ash ton. A man who had a deposit in tho local branch of a Manchester bank hastily withdrew tho amount anil posted to Manchester, whero he de posited it iu the head office of tho same bank. His explanation was thai, ho thought that the small banks would "go first." , Edison has invented a powder which will prevent a father from hearing the voice of an infant except when it laughs.
