What a curious language ! A man is late'when lie is dead and gone, and a train is late when it hasn't come. Tfe census proves that the number of persons in a family in the United States is a small fraction over live. L some families the husband is the smaL fraction over. Ajfteii all, there is a vast deal of common sense in the remark of tiie <10 sorter when he said : "I'd rather be a coward all my life than be a corpse ioi fifteen minutes. * At a medical examination a young aspirant for a physician's diploma \\a> asked: "When does mortiiication en sue?" "When you propose and are re jected," was the rqply. The telephone is in the Sandwich Islands, and, »as "hello" in file native di alecfc is "kalakaihoikauhailioUmukoi," you can imagine what kind of a lime they have at the "central." It is now necessary for »an inventor tc have witnesses to his work, in order t > secure his rights. The witnesses mud be brought iu at the moment the ventor feels like inventing something.

The other day she slung her arm around him and warbled, in a low, tremulous voice: "Do you realize, Adolphus, that now we are married we r*re only one ?" "Ko, " replied the brute, "I can't realize it. I have just paid a $75 millinery bill and a lot mere of your bills, with several outside precincts to hear from, so I am beginning to real ize that, as far as expense goes,instead of being one we are about half a dozen. I can't take in that idea cf our being cne just yet, not by a large majority." The late Bishop of Oxford prided himself on being able to identify indi vidually all the clergy of his diocese. But on one occasion when Dr. Wilber force was dining with a number of them, he observed one clerical brother whose name he did not know. Unwill ing to confess his ignorance, and too cautious to make inquiry, the good Bishop approached the unknown, and, by way of a feeler, remarked to lorn : "I forgot how you exactly spell your name;" to which the somewhat discern fitincr renlv wax.
