Davenport Illinois, has just
had a sensation. " it was all
about a pair of pantaloons, and
is to, end in a divorce .suit.' The
case in hand is as follows: lor
instnnce.a Davenport legal gen
tleman went out one evening
last' week to' have a quiet game
of billiards." He stack to his
Cue for several faithful hours,
convivialized with hiri friends
still longer,- and then went
home. ' On retiring to rest, he
was most' - ihgtik4y iwieaay,
Unci loaded about r Voine time
without dropping into' that
peaceful slumber we usually
derive from a clear? conscience.
His lady was annoyed and com
plained kindly. It w as no use
however; something droVe sleep
from' his eyelids. At this juno
ture his lady wa3 suddenly ta
ken ill (how fortunate that he
was awake;) and he was ap
pealed to to hasten to the nearest
drug store in quest of a fe'stors
ative. He hastily attired him
self, double-quicked down
street rushed into a store, ob
tained the articles so urgently
required, and. produced his
pocket-book. : Great Caesar!
what had transpired? He had
never seen that wallet before;
and the pants! they were not
his own.. Conld.it be possible
he was in his right mind? Was
it not rather -all a distempered
dream? lie resolved to see,
and without stopping to take
the remedy with him', he rush
ed back to the wife of his bo
som. He did not flourish a re
volver; He did not smash
furniture, lie did not strike
attidudes like a gladiator. He
simply took part in the follow
ing conversation:
'Yes; dear.' 1
'How are you feeling,,
'Better. Much better. I
think a good sleep is all I now
need. How kind of you to go
to so much trouble. '
'Very kind,' wasn't it?'
'Very kind, honey.'
'Jane, shall I turn on tlie
If you like dear.'
The gas was turned on.
'Yes, dear.'
'Does 'these loot like my
pantaloons' '
'Why, what can you mean,
dear!' . .
'I mean, do these resemble
the trousers I wore home this
evening. ' ..
'Why, how can I tell, dear?'
and Jane raised up with some
surprise- and reluctance, and
gave a quick glauce,and scream
ed outright:
'Husband !' said she with some
embarrassment,1 'you're made a
ri'diculous mistake, somewhere,
while out with your friends.
What on earth have you been
doing to-night?' .
'That's rather thin, Jane; we
do' not usually take off our
pants to play billiards. When
I went to bed. to-night, I laid
my proper pantaloons on that
chair. When I dressed lo go
out, the pair I have on first
fell in my way. I put them
on, and discovered at the store
they were not mine. I return
ed at once, and now I find the
pair I left on the chair are mis
sing.' ;
Jane began to sob, weep-and
protest her innocence, while
the husband paced the floor iu
deep reflection.
'Jane,' nt last he said, "I
guess you can go home to your
parents to-iuofrow. You and
I ..have gotten along very well,
for a year or ' two, but the
thing's played.
And down stairs he went
with a deaf ear to the frenzied
appeals and prayers she': show
ered after him. An investiga
tion on the morrow disclosed
the fact that the mysteriously
procured pantaloons contained
just four hundred dollars more
than the pair bad so myste
riously walked off. J'nne left
on the first train for ber Illinois
home; abill of divorce has been
filed, and no one has called to
exchange pantaloons and pocket-book.
Carl Schurz in Reply to Aspersions
on German-
on German-American Citizens.
Carl Schurz,' in one of his
numerous speeches on tlie
French arras swindle, was in
terrupted by one. of the Grant
Senators with a small sarcasm
in regard to his German nativ
ity. The taunt struck: fire, and
Schurz responded id this bit of
Let me tell the Senator from
Kew Jersey that although
certainly am not ashamed of
having sprung from that great
liermau nation whose monu
ments stand so proudly upon
all the battle -fields of thought;
that great nation which, having
translated her mighty soul in
fo action, seems at this moment
to hold in her hands the desti
nies of the old world; that great
nation which for centuries has
seufc abroad thousands and
thousands of her children upon
foreign shores with their intel
ligence, their industry,"their
spirit of good citizenship; while
1 am by no means ashamed of
being a son of that nation, yet
I may say I am proud to be an
American citizen. This is my
country. Here my children
were born. Here I have spent
the best years of my youth' and
manhood. All the honors I
have gained, all the aims of
my endeavors, and whatever of
hope and piomise the future
has tor me, it is all encompass
ed in this my new fatherland
My devotiou to tins great lie
public will not yield to that "of
the benator from JNfevv Jersey,
nor to that of any. member of
this body, nor to that of any
man born in this country.. I
wo'nid not shrink from it. And,
sir, for this very reason I want,
with every means within our
reach, to have that spot wash
ed off with' which, apparently,
the good name of this Repub
lic has been soiled.
The Senator also intimated
yesterday that the German-
born American citizens could
not entirely forget their old
fatherland. Possibly not; but
I ask him, should they forget
it? Does he not know that
those who would meanly and
coldly forget their old mother
could not be - expected to be
faithful to' their young bride$
Manifestations of applause iu
the galleries. Surely, sir, the
Germau-born citizens of this
country have demonstrated
their lidelity in the hour of
danger. When the President
of the United States called up
on the faithful sons' of the lie-
Eublic to step forward and to
rave death on the field of bat
tle. methinks the German
citizens' were not "among the
last to respond to the summons.
Nay, in some places they were
even among the first, nnd it is
with pride that I point to the
State of Missouri, the key of
the Mississippi Valley, which,
by the prompt action and en
ergetic patriotism of its German-born
citizens, was nt the
commencement of the wav,
saved to the Union. No, sir;
their thought of the old father
land did not stand in the way
of their fidelity to the new; and
even at the time when, by the
great events which were' taking
place on the other side of the
ocean, their sympathies were
so powerfully aroused,- when
their fears and hopes concern
ing those they had left behind
!were worked up to the highest
pitch;1 even then I may say it
with pride there was not a
German in1 this country who,
in all that excitement, for a
moment forgot that he wns an
American citizen, and that his
first duty was the observance
ot the laws of this Republic-
No; sir; let not their patriot
ism be doubted, even in a case
like this they Bhould desire that
friendship is to exist between
the American Republic and
the great tlerman nation on
the other - side f the ocean, a
friendship which may become
so fruitful of good faith mutual
confidence; and untarnished
'Runs Out in Seven Years.'
There is a prevailing opin
ion,1 in certain localities, .that
vaccination will "run out" in
Seven Years; and that persons
who would shield themselves
from the small -pox, should re
peat the process ofrvaccjniitton
once iu every seven years. That
this opinion is erroneous, we
do not enteitain the shadow of
a doubt. As well might we
insist that a person would be
liable to a second attack of
small-pox, or any other con
tagious disease, alter seven
J. he theory of "running out
