As a general thing, however, the thieves in jail are not disuhbed much by the pastoral calls, unleas the thief has salted down enough money to make it an object.

STORIES 0g FISH AND FIS1INS. Fish "Commibmoner Blackford says that ofitbe 1,500,000 mackerel brought to market this season two-thirds were only a lby months old. A party of men digging in the bed of a dry pond near Americas, Ga, found a live alligator at the depth of seven feet. It was eight feet long and was in a tor pid condition. After a heavy rain storm recently the people of Pawtucket were puzzled at finding in a street puddle more Wan 100 little eels. all alive, and from one to three inches in length. The nearest salt water to Floresville, Texas, is 100 miles away, yet Robert eLacey says that after the bail storm ot last Monday he picked up a genuine red sh, yet alive, which weighed ten. poumds. Sprats are so numerous in Scottish waters this season that millions of them have been sold for manure. Sixty tons ofsprats were recently caught in the alver Tay. They avenged 72,000 fish to the ton. Twenty-eight years ago Henry Clark of Hankinsville, (i., put a catish in his well, and it has grown from two inches in length to sixteen. Every year when the well is cleaned the fish is carefully caught, and replaced after the cleaning. The largest bhas ever caught in the Hudson between New York and Albany. was taken by Richard Ward of New Haburg on Thursdy. It weinhed eight-fou pounds Between Milton. and Low Point many fine bass have been taken this season, weighing from twenty to twenty-six pounds. While fy fishing for salmon in a smll river in Devonshire an English angler played a fih down the river, which is very nrrow. On bringing the hook " ithin reach of the gaffa pke and msI mon were found side by side. The pike weighed six poundsand the salmon twenty-one. In rushing down the river the line had passed under the gills of the pike and made him an unwilling -Ulower of the mre active salmon. _ h 1the manag4 to litrin IhM .Qebile hb d "rentda lr '. i ·eattly, (the. gs.side ease, as Mgheh*4, cm4,the kepy shutters of tlje bu144ag, end idome follow~, went up stai. al "You 5ll*Y, mid Iosas the eld.

Well," sM te . Pttabrg Dispatch's informant, "when Phil and Bob struck PittDburg they boarded the limited ea the Fort wayne, bound for the West. 'Nothing happened until the conductor cane around. Shortly after entering, the ticket-puncher reached the quarter of the two traveles and polite ly aeecoted them with: 'Tickets, please.' The little bullet-headed, red-faced gen tlemani, wd sadeiiel to be Mlter 3f cer emonies, produced his wallet, and hand ed the conductor an envelope. The con ductor glanced at the paper he found in side, and quietly remarked: "'No luases are taken on this train.' "'The passes are regular. They are signed by the president,' replied the lit tle fellow, growing redder in the fate. "'I have my orders, and Iam compell ed to obey them,' calmly replied the conductor. "'Perham you don't knew who I am. I'm Gen. Sheridan' "'Well, Gen. Sheridan, I must obey orders. You and your friend must pay your fare before we reach Rochester, or I will be compelled.to stop the train and put you off there.' "By this time the passengers within earshot of the trio had become interest ed, and the word panssed until all knew that the bearers of the pass were none other than Getr. Sheridan and Secretary of War Lincoln. The conductor passed on through the car and the distinguich ed dead-heads probably thought every thing was settled. But for once in his life Little Phil met s man as stubborn as he is. In a short O ne the train slacken ed, and before it came to a dead stop the conductor re-entered the car, walked up to Gen. Sheridan, gently tapped him on the shoulder, and said: "'Well general, we are at Rochester I' "Sherdan was taken back, and Lin col, looked annoyed. The general tried to argue the case with the conductor, but that official cut him short with the curt statenhent: "'We have no time for aument, gen eral ;this train is compelled to be on time. Please pay your fare or leave the car.' "By this time Sheridan's face was crimsoned. He muattered something, but finally produced his wallet and paid the fare. After settling he asked the conductor for his name. The ticket puncher complied with the request, and watched the angered warrior make the I memorandum. "'I'l report the matter to the prel dent, sir.' e'Very well, general,' replied the train plot, as he gave the signal to go ahead I and resumned the duties of his office." "Did Sheridan report the affair? ask ed the companion of the narrator of the above incident. . "Yes, indeed. A few days ago he re- t ceived a letter fkom President Roberts, I who returned the money and probably apologised for the conduetor'a rudenaess. "And what beame of the conductor?"' "Oh, he's all right. He'll probably be promoted." ..he dhave liWek s dwith -se always that up mgamn theinslve' a er*lQI spas hoi 4 m qvh a instaegisers, sbei.i sutedp ies 41 dashes up d tt~,o y e her u. . ishi arss, aus herpfore .hips c $Ae rtb. ,*t*1bciqA.th h. te, h ISio If hee mote ,h e Mbo, which t'he I a stoles the? d~s'i jysbin a ratv int l t days hesh irvshb, a priest of the trie, toelstieb nad the daseof the asg '_ girl, ad beth tribes Jon in the merri ment.

Indeed, it is the rarest thing in the world to hear of conjugal in fidelity. The women mature at eleven and twelve, and are old at thirty-five. When young they are very beautiful. They have soft, dark skin, black, flow ing hair, and soft, languishing eyes. They are passionate in their loves, but after marriage all their affection is cen tered in their husband. If a woman is found to be untrue to her husband, she is instantly killed together with her lover. But this seldom happens.

He managed to )et himself into the and gotto the top of the senad lhiht of stairs when, whether fromu.siing the flights double as well as other tbints, or not thought he had reached his own landing. He therefore opened the first door he came to-it happened to be that of the 'ath-room--and'takfng e his oost, lay down in the tub in almost full panoply. His repose was restless, how ever, and his boots, rattling against the mental lining of the tub, soon awoke everybody in the house. Among those who came to see what was the matter, was the landlady, who gased at the re cumbent Dizzibody with great disgust. "Get up," said this worthy lady, "and go to your room, you drunken brute!" "Thish my room," said Dizzibody, with a placid smile. "Tisn't, either," retorted the landlady. "Tell you 'tis" insisted the culprit as he rattled his boot-heels on the zinc be tom. "Guesh I know m' own bed! I'd be funny, wouldn't 1, 'f I didn't know" m' own mattreesh," and he shook his head wisely. And so they were constrained to leave him there; but in the morning, as above recited, he was sent about his business. The landlady might have forgiven his intoxication, but the slur on her mat tresses drove the iron too deeply into her soul for the salve of pardon to heal the smart_ Women's feet. The fashionable foot of woman has undergone asudden and radical change. Only a few months ago it was wholly artificial in shape and a unnatural in sizeas squeezing could makeit. The toes were brought to a sharp point and the apparent heel was directly under the instep, while the real one projected behind the high support. You are fa miliar enough with that kind of pedal distortion, because it was for several years in fashion and a majority of finely dressed women submitted to its tortutes. It did not permit of natural walking, but gave rise of necessity, to that mincing gait which we have almost come to re gard as characteristic of femininity. But at the point where further remodel ing of the foot would, have nearly ap proached the Chinese kind ofdisligura tion there came a reaction, and the foot of the New York belle to-day is set flatly and squarely on the ground. The reformation has been produced by the vogue into which athletic sports have come with the ordinarily all-too gentle sex. Pedestrianism has struck popularity with our city young women, and lazy ease is for the time in disfavor. Exercise afoot was found to be hardly a diversion in a high-heeled and narrow toed shoe, and, therefore , change was wroughtin a few weeks which physicians at d e rtormers could net have" fl Ac oiihirnw r hs bsheel m eah.

But e what can ward off a young lady who C plays without being asked? The young girl smiled and touched (he keys with a chord or two. The old woman sniffed and consulted semall dark object at her side. It looked like a valise, lbt it l turned outto be a bent, henpecked lit- 1 tle old man.

The little old man get behind her sleeve and made bimpelf also ready. With this, the young d lady dashed off the prelude to a opular n song, but she never reached the end.
