Advice to V Boy. There, bob, quit kicking the table leg, brash back yoar hair, and tuko that scat by tbe window while I givo yon a little advice. Yon wish to bo come famous and to be known as Billie the Terror of Kenosha, or tbe Boy Aveogor. Now this is not prac ticable outside of books. To be sure you have read of boys becoming bloodthirsty villians, in velvet pants and top boots, in marvelously short time, but as a rule tbe boys who start out to duplicate thoso yellow covered fellows, bring ap in some isolated jail and instead of velvet pants thoy aro adorned in real life with ragged overalls, with tho vitul« worn oat sitting around in lonely places waiting for tho leantifnl mai den to come and fall in lovo with them as they do iu tbe book. But 1 have found a way for you to gratify yonr long cherished desires. I want yon to atm yourself with a double edged grammar and a self-cocking arithmetic and skulk down to the scbool-bouse Monday bright and ear ly. When school culls, conconl your self behind your book, and wheuever you see an opportunity jump onto a difficult problem and probe it through and through. After yon havo to all appearances, mast**rod it, turn it up fiido down and mako it provo itself. By the time yon have followed this npa conple of months you will begin nil r\t IIva ratnMAU crave and will bo looked upon as I Tho Startler, or tho Boy Mathemati cian. By tho end of tbe torin you i will be pointed out to admiring spec-. tutors as Tho Donblo n Etry Wonder j of the Seventh Ward School Yon think now that this will satis fy you, bat it will not. Oh the con trary, it will only spur yon on to attempt still more difficult achiev meuta. An nuoontrollablo dosire to graduate will take possession of yon and before yon realise it, you will bo standing beforo a hall fall of poople with a valedictory in one hand and * cold sweat in the other, trying to carry off tho honors of commence ment day. Thus yoa will go on step by step, until yonr friends would hardly recognizo tho little Willie Brown of to-day in the Red Headed Professor of Poughkeepsie who will be teaching a dead language with one hand while he pulls an astrono mical constellation to pieces with the other, twenty years from now. Of course yon will live longer than you would if you had bocome famous as The Dashing Highwayman of Oeo nomowoc, but you will die in good time, full of years and gout, and the great dailios w ill devote half a col umn under some Qilt Edge Tonic advertisement to yonr obituary no tioe, and aome enterprising cigs* manufacfactnrcr wiil name a brand of cigars after yon, and you will be mourned as The Bald Headed Phil* osopher of tho Nineteenth Century. There, that is all this time. Now run out and tie this ciu Co the tail of that liver colorod dog that wo shut up in the amoke-house this morning, end turn him down this street by the sitting-room window, while 1 get on my spocs and seo if it affects a dog the itmc as it did fifty years ago.—P. Miller-in Peck's Ban. A Mean Husband. St, James' Gazette: Many of the singularities of tho Jewish question in Russia are due to the autonomy in some respeota enjoyed by the Jewish communities there. For example, they have their own marriage laws the marriage laws of the Talmud, that is, and of the anoient Hebrews. In accordance with these laws di vorce is a tery easy matter. Hus band and wife have but to egreo to separate attended before the Rabbi and the thing isdono; the ceremony consisting solely in tho handing ol “bill of divorce’1 to the woman. Under tbo circumstance! strange things somctimos occur. A fovf mouths ago a young Jewish girl, an orphan, armed ip OJessa, intending as maDj yonng Jewesses do, to ob tain a situation as assistant bonne keeper in a Jewish family.' Wbiio looking for a place, she was reoomen ded to stay Vith a respectable mid dle aged married woman, whose young hatband was away for a few weeks. Tbo middle aged Jewess soon found horoolf into the confidence of her guest, and asoSttained tha t the young girl would have a dowry of COO rubles wbenorer she married. Thereupon aho formed a whole design Sho persuaded tho girl to marry, in stead of going into sorvice, promis ing to procure a suitable husband; an undertaking not uncommon among Jews. Wliou hof Jbusbaudft** returned from bis journey she impart ed to him her plan. He was kto di vorce her, marry tho yonng Jewess, ■ecuro her CO) rubles, and, theu di vorcing the now bride, rotnrn to bis first sponsc. Aflor »oeing4tb/prom ised bride, tbo hatband sgreod. Tha divorce was given; the marriage took place; and thou tho husband, per-V fec'Iy content with his new paituer; refused to divorco l.or. Furious at thia breach of promiso, the. divorced wife summoned him boforo the Chief Rabbi, Schabackcr. Uo, however, pronounced the divorco binding and and the marrirge valid. But as a solatium he decidedjthat the dinap pointed woman was entitled to a commission of twenty-five rubles, or 5 per cent of tho dowry, for having acted as scbad-jheu,’ or marriage broker! Women Wanted. Wyoming’s want is woraon. Wo w&ut women hero, partially to oven up tlio population and partially] t<» marry. Our territory i* suffering more now for choice stylos of young and middle-aged women than for an} thing else. Wo need tlum in all department* ot industry whers women may bo ernployod, and also in our homes And by our firesides. There aro hundreds of lonely mon id Wyoming who are doing well financi ally and who would wdlingly-rnsb into matrimony if thoro were enough matrimony to go around. It is the eaddest featnro of our wide Western country at present. The ovor popu lated East, where ay^ung man may pay for ice-croam or oysters for threo girls at a time, ongbt to contribntd «r n* -y-w* rn tnJ* desolate land, whore thero is only one woman to five or six men, and where life is a hollow mocW fy. We sometimes wi*h that nature had designed us for a hired girt in stead of an editor so that.'we could have been independent, lu this conotry “a hired girl’' is only another name for affluence and financial sta bility. Twenty-five dollar* per month and board make the poor, cringing editor green with envy. And yet there are not enough girls in this country to do half the work. A man lives oat half his days and at last secured a wife, only to find that the latter part of his caroer will be devoted to securing a servant girl for her: It's tough, Life is too brief to be trilled away in this manner. One friend of oars who has been reared in luxdry baa been withont a girl for two mon ths, and although be has offered all kinds of inducements, he has been compelled to make the beds and do tbo chamber .work, while his wife did tho washing and cooked the moats. Let tho man who noyer tried it, rise at 6 o'clock, dross five childre d in tho subdued light of early morn ing, then cook breakfast, eat it go down town for a omplo of months, and bo will allow tbe girl that will work for him the nse of his upright piano and take her with him to thb theater. Why, it has arrived at snch a stage here in Laramine that when a man asks one of his neigh bors if be knows of a servant girl that bo can got, the mob turns loose at him and laughs at him till he wishes he was dead. It is an uncommon occnrenco for a girl to come West, work at regular wsgos two or three ^Kars, and tbed os an heiress, marry a bloated capi talist aud settle down. It is a horrible fact that unless something is dona to prevent thti centralisation of capital among the sorvant girls of Wyoming, a rttoln tion cannot be avoided. Thera is not a man within tho tonnd of onr voice that will not ad mit wi'h tears in his ryM and both Htinpondor tattoos troinberling and tottering to tboir vory foundation, that snch is tho case.—Biomorang; The Stafha and Timci-Demoerfl for $2 10 per amnia.
