"The rie and fall of ihn hustle is far more interesting lo women of the presold day than any topic which can be discussed," sai'l Ihe head of a dressmaking depart meat of a largr store in tin's ci'.y on Sat urday. "My, how the hustle did rise. It grew like a watermelon under a JimI summer sun. Indeed, it was beginr.iii:: to bo a question as to W'h'u li is the bus'lf, A nil which ia the girl T as tJeneral Knickerbocker used to sing in his tropical wim: in the lit tle Tycoon. But the bird cairs is doomed. It trust go. Dolly Var- dens went, (jninesboroiigli huts went, and so does everything that sort, l'eople are continually pnntin; for something; new. Ihe bustle ha. t its uses. It gave thin girls an air of stoutness, audit was ii.se J to make the dresses set well. It was a first rate affair lo take the weight of heavy dresses off a wo man's hips. lint when Ihe girls began to wear the bustles half way "up theii backs, people began to get alarmed. It made the dear crea lures, look like miniature camels. And the way the girls would shake themselves, oh my! Why, they Jooked as if they would fall apart. For years the bustle has been growing smaller. The greatest proportion it ever reached was when it lopped the bushel basket. Now it is a very modest affair, and looks like a small-sized rat-trap. By next fall it will be gone entirely. "Mrs. Cleveland has done one good thing for Ihe women of this country. With a wave of the hand she has wiped Ihe bustle off the fashion plates. Indeed, it is really a blessing. Then it is so odd that the President's wife shoal 1 take the inatler in hand. But she has done so. Bustles are only good for masks lo be ued by the small boys at base ball matches now. " , "What is to take Ihe place of the biiftle ! I will show you. Itis simple, effective and cheap. A set of reeds are to be sewed into the back of the skirt. They are ol graduated sizes, and make the dress s-;t well. It improves the hanging of Ihe skirt, and is very simple. So nature is to have a change again ; the bustle has been banished. Men AVho Get Sirii-Tracked. Yankee lilale. 1'erhaps the most numeronsclass of men who get, side-tracked are those who start in life in an occu palion for which they have no nat ural aptitude. Thereare thousands ol farmer boys who never thould remain on the farm the loud pro testations of the agricultural press to the contrary not withstanding. There are doubt less men who make a life business of stirring the soil lyhen they ought to be stirring the Senate, and, on tho contrary, per haps there are men w ho are trying to stir the Senate who ouijht to be filming Ihe soil. Good business men are frequent ly spoiled to make poor preachers ; and there are , many large and heavy lawyers who would make ideal blacksmiths, and there are some slender ami unsuccessful blacksmiths with the keen logical brain and the shrewd masterful mind of (he lawyer. Such men are side tracked for life unless somo great event crosses their track, sucli as crossed the track of Granf, the teamster, or Cromwell, the country squire. But no doubt there are many Grants who always team, and many Cromwella who never leaye the farm. There ara many men who start out in lile, like hunters, on Ihe wrong trail. They never bring dow n llieir game because their game I as gone in an other direction. They are like fishermen who bob for cod in a trout brook, or start n whaling on an inland pond. Thero are some men who arc side tracked for lite at their verv birth. They are born into aniesh of circumstance from which there is no extrication. Of course it is easy enough to say that a man, like wa!er, will always find his lev el; but it is hard for waler to rise plumb with its fountain head when confined in an underground pipe It would have been difficult for Shakespeare to assert his claim lo immortality if he had been in Pat agonia, and we would never have heard of Plato if he had first seen the light in Seylhia. To sav noth ing ofthe hereditary influence that mold the unborn man, the environ ment ot the young human' intan cy usually shapes' and directs Ins destiny so irrevocably that onlv men of Ihe strongest will and the toughest mental and physical filter can ever counteract Ihe impetus that is given them in childhood. The Moulton Advertiser's editor an entomologist, says of fleas; that, prelerred resort, is "down Ihe stocking lee of some quiet womau or up among ihe flounce and bus tle of a frisky girl. The best iv to treat a flea is lo let it alone and let it get through with its picnic. The more vou disturb it, the more troublesome it become-, and Ihe more sensitive are you to it harm leu frolic.'

Having received sin inquiry con ctriiing llienri;;in of t lie t.pr' ion. I wotiM suv that Ihe trow Iim lung been the emblem of conten tion a Iludibras nays: If not resolve before we go That o;i ami I must pull a crow. Tho same iilea is siistfieted in Comedy ot Eirnr?', act third: Weil pluck a crow together. Ill common parlance.eatinfrcrow, aud an expression of humiliation, is much the same as eating humble pie, but evidently is more express ive. Its origin is too obscure lo be definitely reached, but it citneinlo use uurilig the late rebellion, and evidently was born in the camp Many vears ajro 1 heard the late (i i Disosway, who was a con tinned humorist, tell the following story. which he had received lrom a sol dier, and I also head it, from Cap! lialloti, ol the 115111 Kegiment. A private in ono of Iha l'ennsyl uama resmnenls got Jeave lo "o hunting, and unfortunately shot a tame crow belonging to a planter who happened lo come up just as the bird was killed. 1 he unluckv hunter had rested his mtiskel against Ihe tree, nnd the planter seized it and pointing it at the for mer, exclaimed : "You fan eat that crow or die." There being noes eape Ihe hunter got through with part of his distasteful meal, when tne plainer, relenting, said "You've done pretty well; hero take your gun and get oiF right smart. ' The soldier, as soon as he cot the piece in his hands, immediately turned tne tables by leveling it at the planter, exclaiming, ' Now, yon eat the rest ol that crow or I'll shoot you on the spot." There being no escape the thing was done, In a lew days the planter, had oc casion lo visit the camp, and as the soldier recognized him one of Ihe officers inquired : "Do you know that man ?" 'O yes," replied the planter, "we dined together last week." The Aeic Misiissippian of this week, gives the parrictilnrs of most maturely nnd fiendish treat ment of a wile at tha hands of brutal husband. It stales in sub stance that Koderick Lowrv, nep new ot tlie tiovernor, had mos cruelly mistreated his young wife; a bride ot some tuur months ut Canlon. She sama to Jackson seeking protection among friend and flopped nt the residence ol Capt. Henry, Mayor of that city Un Aloiulay Uod Lnwry called to see his wife. She refused to see him except in the presence of Mrs Henry. In the interview between them she declined lo live with him longer, Lowry then jumped at his wtte and be.un choking her. Mrs Henry interposed, he then seized a slone pilcher of waler nnd struck her over the head and continue! lo beat her over the head and lace an long as any of Ihe pitcher was left. He then seized a quart gla Dot no ol medicine and hrone U over it fiver her face. After idie tell he dealt her several heavy kicks. Lowry then rushed out ol the back door through private lots nnd made his escape into l ean liver bottom. He hail not been captured at last accounts, though a large posse ol men had bectw sent in pursuit of him. '"Then you will not be my wife," he said, bitterly, as he released her hand. icannoi," she sobbed, "1 am pledged lo another " "And this is I lie end," he groaned. "The bitter, bitter end, and hope, like a blighted llower, must fade nnd I die. "No, no," she exclaimed through her tears, "don't sav I IihI. Wait Charles ; be failhlul. You know J may be a widow in lew years." The grasping avarice of a wo man's heart is simply awful. a nine gin was eating green com by gnawing it from the cob, when her teelh got entangled with a corn-silk. "Oh, dear!" she said, impatiently, "I wish whenlhev get ihe corn made they would pull out basting threads." A colored folks wedding in Nor folk closed with Ihe remark by Ihe parson, "Ve will siiij t ho beauti ful hymn, 'Plunged in the Gulf of LarK Uespair. " There is one place in Ventura conntv, California, where there aro 6,000 acres planted in beans. MM) NOTICE. Land Ofpick t Jacksox, Miss., ) June2, tW.
