A conductor oil a Missouri, Kansas and Texas train approached a swell looking colored woman. arrayed in s.ll the glories that ribbons can lend, and asked her for her ticket. "Go way fum y'ah! Don* bodder me with none yo* foolishness!" she ex claimed, bridling with indignation. "Come, give up your ticket !" remon strated tlie conductor. "I tole yo' go way fum y'ah! I done got no ticket, an* I don* want no fool ishness !" "If you don't give me a ticket or pay vour fare, I'll put you off the train!" growled the exasperated functionary. "IV don, put. me off no train, now, I tole yo'for suah !" retorted the darky. I.*se got bizincss down vere datyou can't postpone. Ef you put me off de train, y o' done got in a fuss, snail's y o' bo'n!" "Where are you going anyway? Wliat's your business?" demanded the conductor, rather impressed by her manner. "Ise gwine to do hangin' a piece down yere, and, mo'n dat, Iso gwine, aifd yo* can't stop me!" "Who're they gmng to hang?" askec a passenger, who had become interested, in the discussion. "Dev's gwine fer ter hang my hus band, and Iso ter be de only lady pres ent! Go way fum y'ah! Don' foo with me ! Ef yo' think yo's gwine ter git me off dis train an* beat me out'n da last chance o' lavin' over that nigga'i ruudder and sister, who can't git in ant won't stay out, yo' don' know nothin about de strength of a wife's devotion Go way fum y'ali ! Rudder dan lose da chance of breakin' dem nigga's hearts I done put dis heel under yo' railroad an' lift it over do State line ! Go way fum y'ah !" The conductor let her ride free, but whether to save the railroad or her last opportunity to get square with her mother-in-law, was not apparent on his returns. —Dr a ke's Mag azin e. An Invention for Ladies. Ever since the days of Eve a long drawn wail has gone up from the heart of woman touching her frizzes, and she has passionately yearned for something that would prevent them uncrimping at inopportune times. lu response to this touching popular w ant, behold a scientific American holding up to the delighted eyes of his country women crimp-protector, for preventing tho un crimping of ladies' frizzes." It v/ s Artemus Ward who once saÿ.1 of an il lustrious American that every time an emergency arose he got up and "busted in the emergency's head." Iu view' of this crimp-protector, who shall say that Ward's tribute to Washington is not equally applicable to the variety of scientific American under consideration ? If this protector really protects we have no doubt that its paten tee will * come unto such vealth as to be moved to exclaim: "Let me make the crimp protectors of a nation and I rare not who does its plumbing." Ai.u then, to think of w'omen all over the civilized world speaking his name with gratitude and admiration, down through the ages until time and frizzes shall be no more. ■—JVew York Tribune. rnrssiA gets an income tux of tver? bodv who earns $225 or more..
