TRUSTI N G.
We stood on the shore of the ocean, Parting--my love and I- And he placed on my finger a token Of love, as he kisse. mc 'good-bye.' The little boat broke fronm its mooring And leaped in the dark. rolling main ; And from over the sea His voice camie to me- "i'll come to my sweetheart again." The sun went to sleep in the waters, And the little stars peeped from their nest, And the boat came home in the evening And brought me the one I loved best. tt. my lover was trun to his promise. And my heart had not trusal inh vain, When from over the sea Ilis voice came to me-- ;1 .corn to my swe.theart again." A i'ha*e tolr a +,'ife. Si.:ion Pacific express train was delayed at Sidney, Nebr:aska, the other day by a broken sw rcl. Among the pssengers were a young woman and a young mian bound for the PIacitic coast on their wedding trip. The bridegroom, Good wi:n by name, got out to kick up his heels and look around, and while he was absorbing the beauties of nature and other thinzs in Sidney, the train passed on without him. There was consternation at Sidney and on board the Pullman. The bride was in a state bordering on distraction because of her lost liege, and vainly, though frantically, did the groom put in his best lo comotion to catch the retreating train. As he and the bride were one, with a very clear case of "a passenger on board who was left behind," it was fun to everybody else except the two most deeply interested. Failing to catch the train on toot, heclambered into the cab ot a locomotive which happened to be puffing about the place, and earnestly solicit ed assistance. The engineer, a tender-heart ed man with a tender, saw how it was, and proceeded to obtain proper authority as soon as possible, and started with Mr. Goodwin on a stern chase for the flying train which was trying to make up an hour of lost time, and which w.as proud of a new pair of wheels. Away the extra locomotive speed on the wings of love and sympathy and steam, Goodwin petted the engineer and fireman and helped to shovel coal, and at Antelope, 37 miles away, the wild-eyed, pursueing hus hand overtook the heartless cars, and the young couple immediately retired to their stateroom to congratulate each other.- Ex. A . Affect.lonate H nusbansl. it was the Empress Euigenie who found in Adelina Patti, the rich wife for whom the Merquis of Caux had long been in search. He was very poor, his mother geting part of her income by making beautifying powders for the Court ladies. But he was a Marquis and that seemed to be enough for Patti. He was double her age, and unfaithful from the moment of their marri ge. Their quarrels began almost immediately after the ceremony. In less than a week the servants had to save her from his blows. He soon began to bring his mistresses into her very presence. A million or more of her money went to pay his gambling debts. Another to the restora tion of his Chateaux. He made trouble by demanding her salary in advance of her management. He even tried to steal her jew elry, and when at last he accused her ot in fidelity with the tenor Nicolini, she asked him sarcastically how he could wonder if she thought more of Nicolini than of him-a gambler, a thief, a wife-beater and a pro curer ? He struck her, and Nicolini rushing in gave him a sound thrashing. When he crawled from the room his wife was in the tenor's arms, treating him to a tableaux, not unlike the mimic scenes she had acted for years. When finally a divorce was obtained It was granted to the Marquis and she is obliged to divide her earnings with him. She does not think as much of Marquises as she did, or even as much as some American girls, in spite of such examples, are still re puted to do. Opinions on ara Srh Bernharat's Possible Marriage.

Not" ten days had elapsed when the mule brayed his last bray and kicked his last kick. The former owner refused to be held responsible, and the result was was a law suit which was concluded yesterday in Jus tice Alley. When the plaintiff had told what he knew and thought and suspected, his wif~e was put on the stand, and on the cross-exam ination the defendant's lawyer said: "Mrs. Smith, what did that mule die ofT?" "Botts," was her prompt reply. "Are you sure ?" "Yes, sir." Wasn't the beast choked to death with some fishbones you gave him along with his alop ?" ; amn . munnmlu|I I l lm~lim ~llll l N H H I / "No, sir. We haven't had a fish in the house tor a year." "Wasn't it possible that he might have swallowed a hair pin ?" "No, sir. I've counted my hair pins and none are missing." "Do you ever buy poison to kill rats ?" "Never." "Were you home when the r~ule was first taken ?" "I w:!s." "And you knew his ailment was botts ?" "Yes, sir." "And you told your husband so ?" "I did." "Mrs. Smith, do you call yourself a horse or a mule doctor ?" "''No. sir." "Well, how are you so certain that this mule died of botts ?" 'Because I am.', "I want a plain answer. flow are you so cer:ain ihat the mube died of botts ?" "Well, I looked him all over, and he didn't have the measles, chicken-pox, whooping conugh. or dumb ague. My husband looked him all over, and he didn't have poll-evil, colic, sweeny or blind staggers, then we knew it must be bolts." "How did you know ?" "Hflow did I know ?" she echoed in an in dignant voice. "Do you suppose i've kept house for thirty-two years and been the mother of eleven children and not know what the botts are ? Why, I've had 'em a dozen times myself, and the old man here would have died with 'em in March if I hadn't put on mustard poultices and ]rawn em out of his system by way of his feet! Botts! why I know 'em from Dan to Bersheeby !" Insgru-aced their Race. CIIEYENNE,June 10.-The famous miscege nation case wherein a Chinaman and a white woman were indicted for intermar riage, the ceremony having been performed in Colorado, was decided to-day by Chief Justice 8enor. The court held that the mar riage being legalized, it was legal under the statutes. The defendants were finally dis charged. A curious outgrowth of the case is that the Chinamen here have ostracised the bold groom, Lee Chin, and claim that he dis graced their race by marrying a white wo man. A 'Telescope Story. The San Francisco Call tells an extraordi nary story respecting a monster telescope made by Professor Lefevre and Longtour, French scientists, and erected at San Fran cisco. The lenses ar 20 feet in diameter and this is what happeued when the astrono mers and their friends turned the instrument to the heavens : "M. Dufrere was the ficast to apply his eye to the eye-piece of the teles cope. For fully five minutes he looked on in speechless amazement, then, without a word, turned away to hide his emotion. One by one the gentleman present tested the teles cope, exhituting their astonishment in vari ous ways. The planet which happened to cast its beams upon the great speculum was Mars and the revelation is too wonderful for cred it. The eye piece of the lowest m ,gaifying power was first placed on, when the planet presented a most astounding sight. The pow erful lens brought the surface of the planet nearer than that of the moon has ever been brought out by the most powerful telescope. The green of the sea was brought out in un mistakable color, and one could almost imag ine that he could see the waves upon the sur fac-'. There before the eye was sprtad out a splendid panorama of hill and dale, dark patches that must be covered by forests, great yellow patches that looked like autumn fields, silvery threads that must be rivers, and several unmistakable volcanoes.
