Outputs my garret window there's a root. And there tho lively sparrows love to com In w imry days, eager to get a crumb. Though feathered warm. In brown and gray, not proof Are they 'gainst hanger. From a ledge aloof They flurry down, alert and frolicsome. And then again they're sober eyed aud glum. Anxious that I should give for Iheir bshoof. They are abused by some, I freely own; And when I gave food 1 have seen them Bare Away awhile, as if they. bad. a.fear. Of unexpected harm, but ne'er a stone Would I throw at these (rossl; of the air That the dull weather fills with chatty cheer. Edward S. Creamer In New York Sua. The Modern Shave. "The nose pulling barber is hard to find now unless one goes into the cheap shops," said George D. Hamilton of Memphis. "Thero was a time not so many year ago when a barber wonld take you by the nose -if he had to shwe yonr upix lip aad almost pull the pro tuberance np by the roots. A friend of mine told me he went into a shop once, and the barber asked him if he would have a thumb or a spoon shave, meaning thereby that if my friend was fastidious about having the barber jab his thumb in the corner of his mouth to extend his jaw- he would use a spoon for that pur pose. But those days are gone. Even the talking barber is a missing link be tween the new and the old tonsorial schools. All the disagreeable features of a shave have disappeared, and the opera tion is now smooth and pleasant. The only people who find anything disagree able in the - process are those who shave themselves or who get a shave in a 5-cent hop." St. Louis Glebe-Democrat. A Texan's Perplexity. "See here," said Mr. Jefferson T. Short of Carrizo, Tex., as ho dived into his pocket and brought up 100 neatly en graved visiting cards done up in a pack' Abraham' Ark. Abrahian Martin, tin old colored man living in Atchison, Kan., believes that thero is going to be another flood. He claims to have had a revelation in ago. "What'll I do with these things ! dream, in which he was instructed to Minnie's Yearly Expenses. "Minnie can afford to marry a poor man," said a friend of Minnie's mother, speaking of the daughter's evident liking for an impecunious young lawyer. . "That is just where you are mistak en," answered Minnie's mamma. "She has $6,000 a year of her own, and she spends every penny of it upon her clothes. Her' dresses last year cost about 4,000,her hats and bonnets about $500, her lingerie another $500, and besides there are her jackets, gloves and all the other acces sories of the toilet. And she is no ex ception in her' world ; most of her friends spend quite M much and many a great d il more. ,JTo wonder that young men cannot afford to marry nowadays and only rich girls are in demand, though if men did but know it it is more ex pensive to marry an heiress than a girl 'who has been accustomed to manage with very little." New York Tribune, " i' ' ": - A Queer Ituslnesa In China, In' China a baldheaded man of almost any age can within tho space of 43 hours be transformed into u blooinfhg" youth, as far as the hair U concerned i or beardless youth of 18 can be made to look like 60 within the same length of time by having planted upon hU face a genuine gray beard four feet long; or an old maid without eyebrows can be trans formed into a girl of sweet 10 by being fitted out with a beautiful pair of brand new eyebrows or eyelashes of any color. It ;U not a very costly operation in any case; although it is a little painful, but then as it is only temporary, what mat ter dpes.it make to have beauty restored to you if you' do 'haveto' suffer a little pain for only 84 hours or even 48 hours. Without it you may have to be poor and homely all your life. Wong Chin Foo in St. Louis Post-Dispatch. when I get home? If I offered one to a man, he'd shoot me. But I find up here if I want to see the eighty-fourth assistant secretary to the twenty-third assistant secretary of the secretary I've got to give one of the pasteboards to a colored gen tleman who wears better clothes than I do and kick around for an hour in the hall outside befere I can get inside. Judging by the time it takes I will be able to make not more than four calls a week. . "WhatH I do with these? I know the printer won't take them back, because I have been to see him. I can't give them to anybody, because they cost too much" money. If I put .'em in tny trunk, m jr wife will raise troubjpover my extrava gance, and I couldn't explain to her in 40 weeks. If this is what you call a democratic government, I'd like to see a return to federalism. I used to think that these fellows in the departments, being hired by the public and getting their wages from the public, could be reached by the public." Washington Post. Nitroglycerin In a Runaway. W. W. Walters, the venturesome young man who travels over the gas belt shooting gas wells with nitroglycerin, had a frightful experience in Muncie Thursday, and several people had close calls for their lives. Walters travels in a spring wagon, in which he transports the deadly explosive. He was approach ing a gas well on Henry Martin's prop erty, and a large crowd had assembled to see Miss Rose Martin drop the "go devil," which she did. The horses pulling the dangerous stuff got frightened and started to run off. Walters staid with them and pulled his revolver to shoot them if they could not be stopped any other way. Fortunately the neck yokeA on the tongue came loose,- letting the tongue down, and stopped the team. The wagon was loaded with 100 quarts of the explosive at the time, and the result of an explosion would have made a catas trophe. Cor. Indianapolis Journal, The Population of the Moon. There is plenty of authority for be lieving that there is a man in the moon; in fact,- there is, authority for believiag that there are women and other animals there. Dante declares that Cain was banished to the moon, and that he can be seen thereat 'any time.; - Chaucer de- clares that the man in the moon was guilty of larceny, and that he carries a thornbush.' Shakespeare loads him with thorns and gives him a dog. Accord ing to the general version, he was . ban ished there for gathering sticks bit Sun day, and the Germans have amplified, this theory-by- giving him a woman who had " been 'cau ght' churning butter 6a Sunday. New York Telegram, Disgusted With Chicken Raising. A Frenchman living in this city has been jm. enthusinstic poultryman, but this season finds him disgusted with the business.. Meeting a friend the other day, he said! "Yen know dot Schcohin pullet wat t: buy some day las' week? she's a rooster; she crow like every ting dis morning. I cut his head off and have her for my supper next Sunday morn ing. "pringUGrhic ; , . Ointments' from Whales. Spermaceti, which is often used in ternally in catarrh and other affections, as well as in the form of ointments for wounds and excoriations of the skin, is obtained from the- head of a monster of thw whale kind which abounds in the south seas, while the highly esteemed ambergris is only a condition of disease in the same animal. London Tit-Bits. prepare an ark like Noah's of old. The size of tho ark was designated in the dream, and although the quarters are too small for the elephants and giraffes the old man has confidence that the Lord will squeeze them inside in some way. Martin has figured it out by the Bible that the flood will come next August. He expects the menagerie, however, to begin arriving in June, when animals, fowls, etc., will present themselves at the ark in pairs. The old colored man be lieves implicitly in the "revelations" he has had and has moved his family into the ark. "The Lord wants the earth peopled en tirely With black men," be said recently," "ana bo white people will be taken on the boat. Only a few very black negroes will be admitted." The ark is built of old pieces of boards picked iip about town. Martin has been over a year building the craft. Cor. St. Louis Chronicle, : At Italian Woman's Earrings. Some persons profess to be able to guess approximately from what part of Italy a woman comes by the length r.f her earrings."- Italian Airings lengtheu as one goes southward, and in the ex treme south of Italy the earrings of the women reach almost to the shoulders. Exchange. " ' A manifest bit of wisdom is to refrain from criticism of food. Thesaube ma not be quite piquant enough, the salad may be wilted, but in the name of de cency say nothing about it in either Antonio Astora, an Italian living 'in Johnstown, Pa., attempted to remove his trunk and valise from one boarding house to another on Sunday and Was ar retted and flntfl $4 for desecration of the Liability af Chicago Hotel Men. ; " " Travelers may be interested .in the news to the effect that Theodore Bendit, a New York drummer, has recovered a judgment of $40 against the Palmer House of Chicago for a coat and over coat which were stolen from his room. Mr. Bendit brought his suit as a test case for the benefit of commercial trav elers who have to stay in Chicago. -It has been a well settled principle of law in most of the states for a long time that hotel keepers were liable for the loss or theft of a guest's wearing apparel, provided tho guest himself was not at fault or guilty of negligence which led to the loss or theft. Indeed, in New York state this principle has been so broad that the legislature has seen fit to restrict it, presumably on account of the heavy damages several times recovered against hotel keepers prior to 1883, .. Commotion In the Car. "On a trip to Washington a few days ago," said Colonel W. F. Cody, "I had for a companion Sousa, the band leader. We had berths opposito each other. Early one morning as we approached the cap ital I got a morning paper, and after rustling it a few minutes I said to Sousa: 'That's the greatest orde' Cleveland has just issued.' " 'What's that?" came from the oppo site berth. " 'Why, he's ordered all the office seek ers rounded up at the depot and sent home.' ' ' - "You should have seen the consterna tion. From almost every berth on the car a head came out from between the curtains, and with one accord nearly every man shouted: "'What's that?" Chicago Inter Ocean. I: Third Term -Talk : The most astounding report which is brought hero, and Mr. Benedict was au thority for it, is tho suggestion contained in the flattering remarks made by many of the office seekers to the president. A large proportion of them, certainly more than one-half, say to him that they expect to have the privilege of voting for him again in 1890.'- Some of "them try to ex plain why by asserting that party lines will be so changed, and he will have built up so strong a personal following, and it will be so necessary to be sure that his policy wil be carried out, that the coun try will simply demand that he serve another term. 8otne of those who are not officeholders suggest this to him. He never makes any reply to these sugges tions, and what he thinks of them no onn knows. New York Cor. Philadelphia Press. . :--...-'-- The Washington Memorial Association. An association has been formed in Washington for the purpose of preserv ing the most noteworthy houses at the capital that have been made historic by the residence of the nation's greatest men, and also to suitably mark by tab let or otherwise the houses and places that are of chief interest to residents and strangers. It is called the Memorial association and was incorporated last year. Chief Justice Fuller is president. Washington Letter. Hs Growing la England.

Light trousers, black frock coat, white tie, pearl gray gloves, form the correct costume for groom and tubers for a Job wedding. . t Wealthy and Lavish Mr. Crow. About one coming marriage there Is a flavor of romance. A bridesmaid had been bespoken for a wedding. She was taken ill before the time set, and at the last moment was replaced by Miss Louise Doelger, a pretty girl, but un known in society. At the ceremony she met Mr. Moses Rockwell Crow, a gen tleman whose name would not reveal the fact that he is the possessor of $3, 000,000 and a sort of Monte Cristo in his way. It was a case of love at first sight. Moses was captured by the fair Louise, and she, after a suitable period spent in meditation and prayer, con sented to become Mrs. Crow. No one could resist so lavish an adorer. Mr. Crow lives among the swells of Great Barrington, Mass., and gives din ners and dances. He is in the habit of supplying watches set with diamonds as favors in the german. He took his fiancee out to ride the other day in the finest brougham which money could buy, drawn by a pair of priceless horses. When she admired them at the end of the drive, he told her they were hers. New York Cor. San Francisco Argonaut Twin of Mixed Breed, A cow belonging to Mr. Weatherby, a well to do stockman of Manhattan, re cently gave birth to a pair of singular animals. They resemble colts more than calves, although both possess rudi mentary horns ana the hoofs of cattle, but in all other respects they seem to be young horses, having long, ..flowing. manes ano, me iuus or coits, only tnese latter are unusually long and bushy. One is a male, and the other is a female, and both are well developed, well shaped animals. The mother, however, seems to know that there is something abnor mal about them and has declined to al low them natural nourishment so that they are to bo brought up by hand. Philadelphia Times. ttaclc to Ills Farm Again, Ex-Secretary Husk said to a Washing ton reporter: "Yes, I shall go back on my farm in western Wisconsin and re sume just where I left off four years ago. I follow farming not for sentiment or pastime, but to make it pay, and sol shall start to raiding hay and grass and breeding swine and cattle as of old. But I shall always look back with intense satisfaction to my four years of official life, for on the whole the time has been pent pleasantly and profitably." Mrs. J. H. IIORSNYDEE, 152 P&clflo Ave., Santa Cruz, Cal.,' writes: " When a girl at school, la Beading, Ohio, I had severe attack-of brain fever. On my recovery, I found myself perfectly bald, and, for a long time, I. feared I should be permanently so. Friends urged me to use Ayer's Hair Vigor, and, on doing so, my liair Began to Grow, and I now have as fine a head of hair as one could wish for, being changed, how. ever, from blonde to dark brown." . " After a fit ot sickness, my hair came out in comuf tills. I used two bottles of Ayer's Hair Vigor and now my hair is over a yard long and very full and heavy. I have recom mended this preparation to others with like good effect." Mrs. 8ldney Can, 1460 Regins St., Harrlsbtirg, Pa.
