May 31, 1889 -**-· -- Gretna Green's Itomance. Gretna Green was said to be "killed" by the act of 1856, a:,d as a place where clopements were le galized no doubt its glories have departed. The legality of Scotch marriages, however, survives. Any person residing in Scotland three weeks can get married after the informal Scotch manner, and the marriage will hold good. In fact, elopements might still be conduct ed in a elrcuit s fashion. The gentleman could go first, reside at Gretna Green for three weeks, then be Joined by his bride, and marry her on the spot. Other things, however, have put an end to this form of r.amntic marriage. In the days of posting the eloping lovers had every advantage. The young gentlemen could arrange before hand for relays of horses; the pursuing sire could not do so, Snot knowing the date of the pre parations for flight. Then it was said that the inn-keepers and post boys always favorel the fugitives. 'r the fathers generally overtook the runaways, is would have been been bad for trade; therefore the old gentleman did not always se cure the freshest or best steeds, and it was surprising how often his post boys found a linch-pin loose. Again and again was the rattle of the pursuer's coach heard when the knot was securely tied, but not until then. Nowadays l there are no coaches, but express trains and the telegraph wires could anticipate the lovers, and possibly secure delay, if not de tenaign. Also marriages in Eng land'nave been made so easy that I sthere are Gretna Greens at your I y doors..Three weeks' notice a registrar and a quarter of an 's absences from home will abo t a marriage without one eing the wiser--above nI, ot the man and woman who wed, In London andt large as also the calling of banns at parish church is very insuli aient publicity when so many fam ~Iies attend favorite preachers else r Where, and may never hear that I their Mary or Ethel or Constance is about to marry in three weeks "that" impecunious young Brown. Thus Gretna Green still virtcally lingerl with us.. Ilagnetic at traction or someth)og else forces young girls, otherwise intelligent, attractive and even intellectual, to fix all the love of their young hearts on the wrong man. Fath ers threaten, mothers weep, broth eas call him, or prove him to be u ,every thing that is unsuitable or , even bad; she will not listen or .efuses to believe. One day the , street door is open, and she leave· d her father's house to fix her own i Idetliy-perhaps to love him al- I ways, In spite of all his faults or ::even vices, or to repent once :Iud that for life. So Gretna '9tFeen, or what it ones signified, :veisr forever in human hearts. " ,-Some time ago, as Miss Ander- P o. * ig was passing through one of a iMgreat dry goods store, the cl "?ih es_ recognized her and I pIl" qaterd to each other: "There I' $:slaiary Anderson!" A little F 2iht'to e . he~ face, exclaimed: 5'h :Wby didn't you let me know `ifOtlU? I haven't got money kto go to see her play, but t' re looksed t her." The a h~Eout passed out of hear ·::*rwisg back abe stooped p "yuomat not? only tr 1l~i Miphe has kiused w ~e Is The Invention of the Cowcat cher. "If you should go to Columbus, 0., any time within the next few years and should drop into the little model littered office of the _ NMvfelty Iron Works in that city, you would see a sharp-eyed, white headed old gentleman who would either be poring over some abstruse work on mechanics or sketching a quaint design for a pattern to be used in fabricating some piece of ornamental iron work. That old gentleman is L. B. Davies, who ran the first locomotive in Ohio, n who was for years a locomotive engineer in that State, and who Is the man who inventel the cow catcher used on every locomotive in this country to day and in oth er countries, too, I 9) pose. That invention, or conception, has sav ed millions of dollars to railroad companies, andt undoubtedly hun dredls of lives; but Davies has never received a penny's benefit from it." "One day I was runing one of my trips, thinking as usual about the cowcatcher. I noticed a tar mer plowing in a field near the railroad. The manner in which the mould board of his plow threw the soil to one side instantly gave me the idea that I had so long l sought. That was the very ac tion I wanted for a cowcatcher, but it was one-sided. Then it struck me that a device that would be virtually a plow with a double mould board would give I the action on both sides, and the modern locomotive pilot was in vented there and then, as I sped through that valley. I did not rest until 1 had constructed a pilot after my plan. I attached it to the locomotive Patterson, and on I e my very first trip with it its suc cess was more than demonstrated. Superintendant Medberry was with me on the trip. While we were going at a stiff rate of speed we rounded a curve and came sud l denly upon a drove of cattly on the track. I could'nt have stop ped if I had wanted to, but I wouldn't have stopped if I could, for I was determined to test the e value of my new pilot let the con sequences be' what they might, t We cut through that drove like a plow going through soil, and threw the cattle to the right and left off away from the track with out disturbing the locomotive a particle. "Every locomotive on that road. was fitted with my cowcatcher at once. Superintendant Medberry advised me to have the device pa tented, but I had so much to at 'tend to that I neglected it, The c neas of my pilot soon spread, a and it was'ht long before every ii road In the country had it on its " locomotive, and is in use to day, n with no deviation whatever from I' my original plan. That idea that r the Buckeye farmer's plow gave t me should have made me more ti than a millionaire, but it never brought me. a single.penny-not b even a free ride ever the road for a which I made the first cowcatcher.

Don't stop to ask him if it is load ed, but knock him down and don't be particular what you do it with. If there is to be a coroner's in quest, let it be over the other fel V. low-hlie won't be missed. "Will the educated woman mar at ry?" is a subject nder discussion in some of the m ~zines. That d depends. If her education makes her bright, pleasant, entertaining is and sensible she will marry, pro vt vided a man worth having is with in reach. But if her education °f makes her critical, dogmatic and pit edantic she will not marry, for r the simple reason that no man 1e will ask her. All women ought h to be well educated.-E-x. e There is a story told of an ol" g Scotch deacon who courted a girl for a good many years, but never found courage enough to ask her it to have him. One day after they t had been "keepin' company" for a about ten ye&rs, he ventured to so .e licit a kiss. "Let me first ask a e blessing," he said, falling upon 1. his knees, he impored the Divine d benediction. He next, with due It circumspection and Scotch delib it eration, possessed himself of the ,n kiss, when, with a sBou~ding smack, n he exclaimed, "Eh! woman, but it was good! Let us roturn thanks!" The Russian physician and pub Sliist, Portugaluff, declares that strychnine in subcutaneous injec tions is an immediate and infalli nble remedy for druinkenn.nss. The cravin; of the inebriate fl'o drink is changed into positive aversion in a day, and after a treatment of eight or ten days the patient may be discharged. Even should the appetite return months afterwards, the first attempt to resume drink.

What an Editor Has to Do. 1. t We apologize fur mistakes made in all former issues and say they are inexcusable, as all an editor has to do is to hunt news, and 1 Sclean the rollers, and set type, and sweep the floor, and pen short items, and fold papers, and write wrappers, and make paste; and mail the papers, and talk to visl tors, and distribute type, and car ry water, and saw wood, and read the proofs, and correct the mis takes, and hunt the shears to write editorials, and dodge the ,bills, and dun the delinquents, and take cussing from the whole E force, and tell our subscribers that we need money. We say that - we've no business making mis-. takes while attending to these Iit. tie matters, and getting a living on gopher-tail soup flavored with imnagination, and wearing old shoes and no collar, and a patch on our pants, obliged to turn a smiling countenance to the man who tells 6 us our paper isn't worth one dol lar anyhow,--Lsman Globe.
