"Blue and gray" mixed makes a sky
blue color, very much like the monkey
painted his tall; and the freaks of the blue
boys and the gray boys, when they meet
and mix, especially when they mix, have
a good deal of "monkey-shine in them.
The blue boys speak the finest pieces that
were ever heard-nothing to compare with
them in the "Columbian Orator" or
'"American Speaker"-but they no sooner
speak them than they forget all about it,
and go straight away to Washington and
ilud an old, crippled rebel in gray in some
small office, or a rebel widow or orphan
filling some insignificant place under the
Government, and demand that he or she
be turned out to make place for some "boy
in blue" who served his country well and
draws a handsome pension, which the
crippled rebel has to help pay. Plenty of
good words come from that side, but the
actions "which speak louder than words,"
are all the other way. The thing is be
coming so monotonous that we are getting
tired of the "blue and the gray."--Pich

Humors of the Strike.
Among the striking operators a constant
source of amusement is the alleged "bulls"
of the new operators. Of course, the finer
points are only understood by those with a
full knowledge of the alphabet; but these
are among the stories told.
"John H. Henry, Chicago.--Burnett
House to-night; send word to my resi
dence. Leave to-morrow. W. H. I."
It reached its destination: "Burned
house to-night; send Ford to my resi
dence. Leave to-morrow." The recip
ient, thinking his brother "W. H. H."
had suddenly been bereft of reason, and
not knowing who"Ford" was, came on to
Cincinnati on the first train to prevent
further incendiarisms, where he was en
abled, after much trouble, to find out what
the matter was.
A prominent clothing merchant tele
graphed a firm in New York, from this
city, to "Express the thirty-five coats at
once," referring to part of an order re
maining unfilled for coats, size thirty-five.
The New York firm was perplexed at re
ceiving a demand to "Express the thirty
five cows at once," and replied that "they
(lid not deal in cattle."
A leading broker's never-too-legible fist
wrote on a blank: "Use your discretion
in closing my deals." The Chicago house
to whom the telegram was directed are
still cudgeling their brains with: "Use
four directions in chasing my dogs." The
Chicago house wittily responded: "We
are willing to chase your dogs, but we
haven't agents enough to send to all the
cardinal points of01' the compass. Please be
more explicit as to direction."
A wealthy bachelor, resident of Walnut
Hills, who is slunmering at Swampsecott,
telegraphed to some of his fellow batche
lors here: 'Open my house and circulate my
wine." their consternation could not have
been augmented had he been a benedict,
for the message reached them; "Open
horse and circulate may wife.,'
One of the early morning messages sent
by a broker to one of his country dealers
read: "Showing up West better than
our fondest hopes." The country dealer
read: Snowing up West. Bitter then our
fondest hopes !"
A young Cincinnatian who has at some
unprotected nioment lost his heart to a
winsome damsel in the neighboring city
of Louisville, bids fair to regain once more
that palpitating muscle, all on account of
the following telegraphic peace-destroyer:
"To Miss -- ,Luusville, Ky.:
"Mlay the silvered beams,
Alnld golden I ght,
Wash the brow o. my love, to-night,
And keep her lutlre ever bright."
It was evidently the birthday of the fair
one; but the maudlin doggerel or her
Chawlie was born to blush unseen. It
died an early death at the hand of the
"loyal" telegrapher; and when the sweet
recipient pictured tui descending be.wm,
full of silver, cauing her to tee stars, or as
the wretch expressed it "Golden lights,"
than and there Charlie's hcase and fond
hopes became a total wreck.
Witness the Lousville rendition:
"To Miss3 ---- , Lousville, Ky."
"May the silvered beamis, Amid golden
Wash the brow of my love to-night'
And teep ner leature ever bright.
A Starved Opera Company.
No doubt thle operatic stage offers as
great contrasts in respect to remuneration
as can be found in any walk of life. Dur
ing a recent performance in Algeria of an
tlalian company there was such a weari
some delay after the second act that the
audience made loud demonstrations of dis
gust. Thereupon one of the actors ap
peared before the scene and explained that
the company felt physically unable to go on
with the performance. 'rThe manager, he
he said, haid run a way with all the re
ceipts, leaving the singers in abject mis
ery. The only member of the company
who had tastedl food that day was the prima
donna, and she had brea:kfasted on a slice
of bread and an onion. This statement
aroused the ildignation of the audience to
a high pitch, and several men jumped up
on the stage in the hope of tinding the
manager concealed somewhere and admin
istering to him a lesson which he would
have rcrimcbered the lest of his life.
It Was the Last.
The most humble of the civil function
aries of the French republic are the naval
eats. There are some hundreds of them,
and their importance is duly recognized
by the state, which supports them in such
comfort and dignity as benefits their of
ficial position. The French naval cat
enters the service in his kittenhood, and
spends the first year or two of his active
career on board a man-of-war, where he
is berthed in the hold and permitted, to
devour whatever he can catch. Having
thus passed through apprenticeship, he "N
sent ashore and quartered at one of the
five naval ports as a terror to the rats and
mice that swarm in the victualling yards
and store sheds. He is then entitled to an
allowance of 5 centimes a day, and this
sum is regularly paid on his behalf to the
director of cats, who lays it out in horse
flesh for use of his forces.
Sartoris and Gen. Grant.
An announcement in a Green Bay pa
per, this week, of the sale of fractional city
lots by "Mr. A. Sartoris" serves as a re
minder of the Bush scandal, in which this
scion of English nobility figured a few
weeks ago. It also tempted an. officer of
the law to mention the fact that while the
newspapers occupied their columns in air
ing the lady and gentleman the officials
were engaged in obtaining ilnfioratio.n
and proof connecting Sartoris with the ad
venturess beyond the shadow of a doubt.
This information, the officer stted, was
promptly forwarded to Gen. Grant, and is
now in his possession lor use hereafter,
when in his opinion occasionl demands.
The scandal continues fresh in the minds
at the people here, many of whom mani
a a mortid. desire to learn= the pradlt
#hereabouts eofrs. Bush. An ipreesa
ion has gained with them th.kt the lady
did not go directly to Eugland from
:Oh i.go, but still lingers in the United
States. Hence thikr curiosity.
