Jim Blaine, Of Maine, We remind you that, Fine words hntter no parsnips. Neither your silvery oratory, Nor your rhectorical pyrotech nis, of re and H. Can disguise the damning fact That your St:ite of Maine, Jim Blaine, Is tbe first Northern one to Openly, Audaciously, and Defiantly aliy itself To the dead and stinking car cass of the defunct Confederacy. You may speechify till your glib tongue gets as dry as a bass wood chip, Jitn Blaine, But the "damned spot" will not out That your State is in open re bellion, Jim Blaiue. Politically, Maine ranges along side of Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. Morally, yon, yourself, Jim Blaine, range along side of Hampton, Lamar and Bob Toombs. You represent a rebel State, Jim Blaine, A moral qnagmire, A putrescent slough of poiiti cal cowardice, on th« one hand, or a splendidly audacious horde of constitutional conspirators on the other, Jim Blaine; Take which horn of the dilem ma you will, And yon are still in a bad boat. Now, Jim what are you going to do about it? What? Between ourselves, Jim, is there any heroic timber in your spinal column? Does your heart kick aronnd among your ribs, like a grizzly bear in a cage? Is there a mad, valorious fever tearing along like a locomotive from your big too to the tip of your thumb? If there is, you are all right yet, Jim. You are a hero in the raw." Go straightway to Rutherford Burchard Hayes, and tell him to give you Ten thousand National troops, end then Let you hurry at their head, Hell-bent for Maine, and Take possession of the rebel lions province in the name of the Nation. Fight it oat on that line. Jim, if takes you all winter and sum mer, And we swear to your Jim Blaine, by the great pines that sway on the margin of the Ken nebec, That we will have Grant ap point you military Governor of that insurrectionary province for the balance of yonr natural life. The Nation will not be nn grateful, Jim Blaine.—[Lemars (Iowa) Sentinel In Newport a child was cu riously poisoned by swallowing some green paper in which sugar plums had b «en wrapped. An Ornament to the Profession. A student applied the other day to one of the district courts for admission to practice, and an examination committee of one was appointed by the judge to ascei tain his qualifications. Tbe examination began with: "Do you smoke, eir?" "I do, sir !" "Have you a spare cigar?" "Yes." "Now, sir, what is the first duty of a lawyer?" "To collect fees." "Right. What is the second?" "To increase the number of his clients." "When does yonr position toward your client change?" "When making a bill of costs." "Explain." "We are then antagonistic. I assume the characcer of plaintiff and he becomes the defendant." A suit decided, how do you stand with the lawyer conducting the other side?" "Cheek, byjowi." "Enough, sir; you promise to become an ornament to your pro fession, and I wish you success. Now are you aware of the doty you owe me?" "Perfectly." "Describe it." "It is to invite you to drink." "But suppose I decline?" Candidate scratches his head "There is no instance of the kind on record in the books." "You are right; and the confi dence with which you made the assertion shows you have read the law attentively. Let's take the drink and I'll sign your cer tificate. the he on a A Sad Scene. A man falls from a scaffold The reporter hastens to the spot and pushes his way to tbe man' side. 'My life voyage is nearly ended," whispered the dying man as he held tbe reporter's hand. "My soul, like an unfin ished craft, is being swept from its earthly mooring, and carried out into the great pathless ocean of eternity. Oh, how unpre pared I am for this journey How my spirits shiinks from em barking upon that silent, solemn sea ! I have a wife and beauti ful child who wiil mourn my ab sence; and now that I see no fu ture, nothing but the dark, im penetrable shadow of death which will soon hide me from earthly eyes, the world looks more beautiful, and I long—oh how I long to stay. Good-bye good—farewell." Pre—prepare for this " His head drop ped. "Courage, courage." whis pered the reporter, while tears as big as hickory nuts chased each other down his nose; "but business is business. Courage, he whispered; "how—how do you spell your name?" Over 200 bills and joint resolu tions were passed by the Gener al Assembly of South Carolina at the legular session just closed. Most of them are merely of local importance. Tbe General As semMy was in session jnst thirty days, and tbe whole cost of the session was about $40,000. Met with His Match. The clever Dr. Ritchie of Ed inburg, met with his match while examining a student: He said: "And you attended the class for mathematics?" "Yes.'-' ,: How many sides have a cir cle? "Two," said the student. "What are theyr" What a laugh in the class tb® student's answer produced when he said, "An inside and outside." But this was nothing com pared with what followed. The doctor having said to this stu dent, "And you atttend the moral philosophy class also?" "Yes." "Well, you would hear lectures on various subjects. Did you ever hear one on cause and ef fect?' "Yesi" "Does an effect ever go before a cause?" "Yes." Give me an instance." "A man wheeling a barrow." The doctor then sat down and proposed no more questions. A MARRIED WOMAN'S TRIALS. [Stockton Journal j A lady living in the southern part of the city was sitting up about 11 o'clock a few evenings ago waiting for her husband to come home. Tbe lamp was it her bed-room and she was in the parlor. Hearing a noise outside of the door-yard fence, as if a man who was drunk was trying to find the gate, she went out and sure enough a drunken man was there! She helped him into the parlor, as she had been used to doing, and placed him care fully on the lonnge. After a hard struggle she got his coat and vest off, and then came to his feet. She pulled at least five minutes at tbe boots (as she thought they were) to get Ahem ofl, but they would not come At length she felt up about • the ankles and found that the man bad shoes on—something that her husband never wore. Strik ing a light she discovered that she had a tramp on the lounge who was drunk through and and through. What followed can easily be imagined. A peculiar process has been invented in Germany by which labels are printed on bottles by a simple operation, neither paper nor mucilage being required. The process is an actual printing on the bottles themselves, and the labels can be scraped off with a knife, though they are not af fected by water. The process is said to be inexpensive and cer tainly must be .convenient. 2 loves sat beneath the shade And 1 un2 tbe other said: "How 14 8 that you be9 Have smiled upon this suit of mine; If 5 a heart it palps for you— Thy voice is mu6 melody— 'Tis 7 to be thy loved 1, 2— Say, Oy nymph, wilt marry me? Then lisped she soft: "Why, l31y! " A dentist's sign — Drawing, music and dancing. The Bar Association—A dou ble trapeze performance. Bass- Drum for a Sick Man. [Boston Commercial Bulletion.] Toward the latter part of the war," said the Colonel, "bands became rather scarce in the Con federate service, and we were rarely regaled with the strains of martial mnsic unless it was from the Federal forces. On the re treat from Sharpsburg, duiing a brief halt, the weary soldiers, as was their custom, flung them selves down on either side of the road for what rest they could get. Just at this juncture came trudging down the center of the road a solitary musician with a big bass-drum. His appearance excited tbe liveliest emotions among the boys, which finally found vent through a tall, tal low-faced North Carolinian who, bringing his piece to the ready» halted the astonished musician, at tho same time drawing out: Say, mister, can't you como down here a piece an' play some thing kinder soothing on that air thing—for a sick man?" Cooked Alive .—One of the most sickening affairs, if indeed it is not the most horrible, which it has been our duty to chronicle, says the Huntsville (Ala.) Inde pendent, happened recently on the premises of Mr. Solon Kelly about 8 miles from Huntsville. There was a hog-killing ia pro gress, and two colored men, Robert and Dennis Patrick, brothers got into a dispute about each other's share in the year's crop. A long kettle filled with water was near by: The water in the kettle had been heated to such a degree that they werp waitiog for it to cool a little in order to scald the hogs in it. Tbe water was so hot that they were afraid it would "set" the hair of the bogs.' This was the high temperature of the water when the brothers began to quarrel; Dennis, who was the oldest, told Robert that he would put him in the kettle if be didn't shut up, and Robert, the preacher broth er, told Dennis that if he put him, Robert, in the water, he, Dennis, would have to go with him. Den nis caught Robert and pressed him backward in the direction of the kettle, .depressed him, both having their arms locked mean while, until tbey both went head long into tbe kettle of seething water. Their piteous, awful screams and moans soon attrac ted others to the place, who fin ally extricated them from the white hot cauldron. They re tained their senses when first taken out, and their intense, agonies were simply beyond de cription. They at once co plained of their hot clothes, a when these were taken from their limbs great flakes of boiled flesh went with them, leaving their bones exposed. Their beards fell out and their hair dropped from their heads. They had literally been cooked alive! The sight was such that those who witnessed it were well nigh paralyzed with horror. All pos sible measures] of relief were tried during the night, but Rob ert died next day and Dennis died on Monday.
