A FLOODED DISTRICT.
“Do you attend to out of town mat ters?” asked a tall, carelessly dressed individual, walking into the city edi tor's room and assuming a “stained glass” attitude against one of the tap estry hung walls. “Now and then,"’said the city editor. “What is your trouble?” “Well, you see, I just arrived from the South,” said the visitor, helping himself to an Eastlake chair, and stretching his feet out comfortably on one of the Turkish rugs. “I own— that is, I used to own—a plantation not far from New Orleans. Now, I own a lake”— “Then you come from the flooded districts?” said the editor, growing in terested. “Right from the very middle of 'em,” said the visitor, curling one long, thin limb over the other, and proceeding to shave off a chew of tobacco from a very black looking piece of plug. “I tell you, sir, it’s dreadful down there, and the timer came on 11s wn mi,1,1,,,, like. Why, 1 woke up one morning and found ducks sailing around my bed and our pet hog perched on the mantlepiece, puffing like a steamboat on a mud bank. How that hog ever got up there lays ’em out. Well, the water was a rising and a rising, and before long we had to take to the roof, and there we staid for fifteen days.” “Fifteen days!” said the editor, in surprise. “Yes, sir, fifteen days, and we could not get anything to eat for the last five, except the moss that sprouted up atween the shingles. Well, my wife got awful thin like and so did the chil dren, and I kinder fell away myself.” “Well, I should remark,” said the editor, grimly. “Yes, you see a moss diet a’n’t no way fillin’,” said the visitor. “Why didn’t you swim out?” asked the editor. “There was the trouble,” said the visitor. “You see there a’n’t no plan tation nigh onto ten mile from ours, and I calculate that would be too much of a pull for me. I reckon I’m a good swimmer, but I didn't care to tackel that ten mile. Well, we’d got down to our last shingle, and there wasn’t a smitch o' moss on that roof big ’nough to wad a shotgun with. Our youngest had been given the last bit, and he set there on the chimney chewing it up and lookin’ like a hand organ monkey down on his luck, when I see a little cloud way across the water. I didn't say noinin tor a moment, but I knew pretty well what that cloud meant, and I watched it like a nigger would a coon. Well, she grew larger, and I made sure it were a steamboat. Then I kinder whispered it quiet like to the old woman. Well, she took one look, and then flopped over in a dead faint, and afore I could grab her she rolled down the roof into the water. Well, that was the last of her.” “You don't mean to say you let her drown?” said the editor. "Well, you see, boss,” said the visi tor, “I was so weak I knew it was death for both on us for me to go after her, and to make matters worse she pulled in our youngster with her. I tell you we're having tough times down our way. At last somebody on the steamboat saw us and they took us aboard, but I lost everything, not to say nothin’ about part of my family. Well, they took us up to New Orleans and I scraped up cash enough to come North, and here I am.” "Hut what did you come North for!” asked the editor. "Well, you see they put me on a belief Committee, and I'm on here to raise funds for the sufferers.” “Oh, you are,” said the editor, edg ing his chair back and looking sharp at the visitor. “Yes, I see you newspapers fellows was throwin’ out lots of sympathy for us; and I just thought I’d tackle the press first, and then work down through tlio __f r . - V/JVOOIWUC. "Y7ery thoughtful in you,” said the editor. "Yes, after I've got your contribu tions I 11 just see whether the churches are good for anything,” said the visitor. “Wait a moment,” said the editor, walking over to the telephone, and then he called the instrument, “Con nect with police headquarters,” but the relief committee didn’t wait for the reply. Probably the only persons in this country who attended Napoleon’s funeral at St. Helena are two men now living within 100 miles of each other in Michigan: Francis Martin of Detroit, and William J. Palmer of Hattie Creek. Palmer was a British soldier on duty there, and supposes himself to be the sole survivor of the party. He is now 84 years old, and quite deaf, but has his memory un impaired. Martin happened to visit the island with his uncle, who com manded a ship, a few hours after Na poleon died, and as a gale blew the vessel out to sea while they were on shore, both were compelled to stay until after the funeral. He who seduously attends, pointedly asks, calmly speaks, cooly answers, and ceases when he has no more to say, is in possession of some of the best requisites of men. VERY OLD PEOPLE. W. J.

PRETTY SPRING COSTUMES. — A pretty spring costume is of dove gray serge. The skirt is trimmed j round with iifteen rows of chined gray woolen braid, and finished round the ! foot with two very narrow flutings. j A sort of double skirt of the same ma terial forms a deep limp puffing in j front and a draped tournure at the | back. The bodice is made cuirass fashion, with a pleated plastron, in the j shape of a diamond, peaked at the i neck and waist, and broader in the | middle of the chest. The coat sleeves are striped lengthways with braid. Another spring costume is of blue cashmere, brocaded with a pattern of small red dots and plain blue cashmere. The skirt is trimmed with five gath ered flounces of the plain cash mere, each trimmed with a narrow i band of the brocaded. The bodice is | of the plain, with a plastron of the j brocaded, made fulh and fastened down the lower part, with plain band across. Panier draperies of the bro caded cashmere, rounded off on each side, and losing themselves under the short puff, which is composed of both materials combined. Plain sleeves. 1 withjbrocaded reveres. A visiting dress j is of plain ribbed Ottoman silk and a j light, wooled material, brocaded with ; a silk pattern of intersected circles. Jacket-bodice of Ottoman, with full pleated basque behind, trimmed with passementerie ornaments; the front is of the brocaded material. The under | skirt is also of the latter; it is put on | in full pleats at the back. A drapery of Ottoman is thrown across the front, and puffed into a torture at the back.

FREAKS OF IMAGINATION. In an early part of my practice I was called into a neighboring town to visit a patient. It being about the middle of the day, the old gentleman of the house (over sixty years of age), invited me to stop and dine. While at dinner he said,— “1 don’t know as you like my dinner.” “Why, yes,” said I, ”1 do. I like it very well; it is very good.” “I guess,” said he. “you don’t know what you are eating.” “Why, yes,” said I, “I do. It is some new corned beef.” “Ah!” said the old gentleman, “it is horse beef.” 1 replied: “I don’t believe it.” “Tti is.” said be “T rlenlnre itic ueme of my old mare.” I was not much acquainted with him at the time. I looked at him suppos ing him to be joking, but could not discover a muscle of the face to alter or change. I had just taken another piece on my plate, and a mouthful of the second slice in my mouth, and, in fact, it was horse meat sure enough. I could taste it plainly as my olfactory nerves could discover the scent of an old horse. The more 1 chewed it the more disagreeable it tasted. I contin ued picking and tasting a little sauce which I could swallow, but the meat, as the negro said, ‘‘would not go.” I at last gave a swallow, as 1 do with a dose of physic. I afterward tasted a little sauce, but took good care not to put any more meat in my mouth, and kept time with the family, (tlad was I when dinner was over. It being cold weather, the old gen tleman went to smoking and telling stories. At last he said: “I won't leave vou in the dark about your dinner. I told you we had horse meat for dinner, and so it was. I told you it was some of my old mare, and so it was, for I swopped her away for a steer, and that was some of her beef.’’ I have ever since been glad*the old gentleman put the joke on me, for I never should otherwise have known how far imagination would have car ried me. Many very queer letters from would be-pensioners of the Government are received at the Pension Office, says a Wuclu’nrrfrtn hnf #1, n .1 . upon which pensions can be granted are pretty well settled by law. The Commissioner was, therefore, surprised the other day to receive a letter from an ex-soldier, who had discovered an entirely new ground for relief. He stated that he had no wounds and was not disabled by disease. He wrote that he had been in the Union army, and was fighting in the ranks at the battle of Antietam. Early in the engagement he had lost his coat, vest, and one suspender. “The other suspender” he wrote, “was my only stay and support. Imagine my dis may when a bullet came along, and, slightly scorching my skin as it passed, cut the last precious suspender clean in two. There I stood in the presence of many thousands of men. My emo tions cannot be described. You, Mr. Commissioner can imagine them. I am certainly entitled to a pension for the wounds given to my feelings on that occasion. Possibly you may not decide that a large pension should be given me, but at least I ought to have enough to keep me in strong reliable suspenders all my life.” "Are you the rector?” said a gentle- I man calling at the rectory of a little ! Episcopal church in a country town. “Yes,” replied the meelc-looking gen HPTIinn wllA Pilinn trv tlin (Iaax .‘f you’ll step in I’ll introduce you to my wife. She’s the di-rector.” New Orleans lias just had a baby show, with ninety-nine infants on ex liibitition. The first prize was won by a seven months-old baby that weighed thirty-one pounds. --- The science of life may thus be epi I tomized—to know well the price of time, the value of things, and the worth of people. These tlnee things—smoke, raining into the house and a scolding wife_ will make man run out of doors. “Why men drink is what staggers us,” says a woman’s journal. What men drink is what staggers them. -—THE MILD POWER CURES.— UMPHREYS’ omeopathic - i SPECIFICS. fcuniiU*. Safe and bare Medicines for the people LIST PRINCIPAL NOS. CURES. PRICE 1.
