Nevada OLD RACHEL'S UMl LLA. Uow tlio Frugal tudy Made lier Husband J tin loo the Murk. Hare you ever goon one of tb cH fash ioned umbrellas of cotton that tur grand k1vo3 or some of them used to carry with immense pride? An old character, says tlio Pittsburgh Dis paie'.i, who was well known in theSewickley valley for I don't know how many years olio isn't dead or forgoiten yet had on um brella of this sort by which she Bet great store. It wa3 of bluo cotton with broad, white, circular stripes, and to what era it belonged old Kauhol did not know. Tliev sav she nnlr lrnt. it score of years ago, her husband, who was a irum-waiuer on tao jj ort ayne railway, screwed up his courapo enough to ask her to Wild mm tlin unpi-nrl ,iml, ci ummiij, OUU brought out the bluo and whito treasure irom tne corner of the little station-house where thev lived, and with t.,n t-t,,.,.. liuns to bo sure and bring it back, gave it to UilU. He bad to wall? tin- miino ,nt-n try that day. and when ho had reached bis wauuuuun 11, naa sioppca raimng. Tao sky , uwixiu, uuu X suppose that was why be forgot the bluo and w iiiiaj uuiuruua. He never thourrht.nf it. rrmin m fc the threshold of his homo, and there his no cumronioQ mm wita her two hundred pounds of muscle and bono. "Where is it?" she said, iu a low and om inous tone. "Where is what, Rachel?" was her hus band's meek reply. "Where's that umbrel'?" -Sakes alive ! I left it behind 1" "Before you git Into this house you'll fetch that umbrel'." Jim that was her husband's name knew that Rachel would do as she said everv time, and he walked back three miles, and then retraced his stcp3, bearing the "umbrel'." BOUGHT FOR A SONG. An Oltl Phrnse Which Has Outlived Iti Days of Usefulness. This phrase, so long used in a contemptu ous, or at loast off-hand, sort of a way, ought now to fail into disuso, says the Lon don Globe. It has no reason for existing; the idea contained in it is exploded. Time was when the best of songs had little pecuniary value, and when to say 'I havo bought such and such tor a mere song," implied a purchase of exceeding cheapness. Now all is changed. A fortune can be made, and sometimes is made, out of a single ditty.. If it catch the publio ear, prosperity follows as a matter of course. Some sonps yield a handsome regular in come to their owners. Wa know, for ex. uraple, how enormous is the circulation of some of Sir Arthur Sullivan's drawing room melodies. Who shall say what has been netted by "The Lost Chord?" An American musical paper has just recorded that the woll-kuown ballad ; "Listen to the Mocking. Bird," has brought in a profit of tlOO.OOO. Our contemporary contrasts this sum with tho sums realized by certain works of tho "old masters," but the com parison, of course, does not hold good. It is a question, not of intrinsic value, but of popularity. Everything that is popular pays; that Is irrefragable. And the fact is the outcome, mainly, of tho great growth of the population. When any thing suc ceeds nowadays, its success is usually very crcat, simply because there are so many different persons to whom to appeal "Listen to tho Mjckiug Bird" must have commended is self to tho great majority, and hence Us monetary triumph. It would be pleasant if the million would go into rapt, urcs over sonss of a hlh caliber, but that la hardly to bo expected. Abolition of Jutlns. Judas has boon officially abolished In the island of Maderia. n . has been a time honored custom of the natives to exhibit in ono of their numerous religious processions ou effigy of Judas, upon which the oppro brium of the populace was duly heaped, and at tho olose of the day Judas was burned with vociferous expressions ot triumph and joy Of late years it has hap pened that tho effigy of Judas has borne a striking resemblance to some person upon whom the general public had ceased to smile, and thus the Governor of iho island, the mayor of Funchol, and a foreign Con sul htvo keen caricatured In the procession and burned iu efligy. The powers that be have deciiled that the admixture of politics and religion is not wholesome, and so the edict hag gone forth that hereafter the peo ple must get along without Judas. Papur.O.rgun 'pos.. . Anovol uppiicntion of paper pulp has re cently been discovered, and consists in the production of- organ pines from that ma terial. Tho origin of tho industry is some whu ourioira,' Crespi K'kiaiko, the curate of a little, Italian, villuf'-, was. desirous ol supplying his chapel wall au organ, but US tne comniuno vvus too poor to flud the neces sary .funiis,, ho und an engiuwr of the name ol Colombon hit upou the idea of making the Pipes of paper puip, which gave such satis factory results that, tnetfaieutuas bees sold Germany Us 2,51.
