It is like a rapidly moving panorama the mind has not time to ..grasp the thought or situation before ihe eye is attracted to something else, .nd the former thought is lost. And herein lies one of the greatest argu ments in favor of Sunday papers. They come at a time when the reader aia more leisure to devote to their con sideration. They look over, weigh and digest its contents carefully. There are no waiting customers at ihe store no employes to ba looked after to see if they are on time.

Mr. Carlyle gave the lately discov ered manuscript of his Irish diary to a friend who is now dead, and who pre served it as a kind of secret treasure so carefully that its existence was long unknown. The style is described as racy, and it contains many frank ob servations on such points of national character as are of the highest inte r est at the present political juncture. Mr. Froude is greatly impressed with its importance, and intends to write an introduction to it. Here is a real adventure in the far west for bovs to read: Christian Alfson, aged 12, wandered into Utah. He was employed awhile on a sheep ranch, but was too small to do the work, and was discharged. For twenty days the poor little fellow trudged aimlessly about, in bitterly cold weather, scantily clothed and fed. One day he was found insensible in a snow drift, with a little flour in a tin pail as his entire stock of provisions, ; and so badly frozen that, on being sent to Salt Lake for treatment, his feet were amputated.

Some mouths ago a voung gentleman named C. II. Burke gave up his busmes , planted climate the graduallv became worse, until at last he was too weak to even walk. Before leav ing his northern home, he had won the heart of a young lady, the daughter of the Rev. J. Peirce, of Clinton, Mo., and when he at last perceived that his end was drawing rapidly near, he telegraphed her that he was dying, but wished to make her his wife before the world had entirely slipped away from him. "I am coming," was the response flashed over the wires, and wistfully young Burke waited for the coming of his loved one, who so nobly proved the truth of those world famed words of Scott. 'O, woman in our hours of ease. Uncertain, coy and hard to please; Bui when toll and anguish wring the brow, A ministering angel then art thon." As he lay in his room at Hord's hotel, many who saw how pale and emaciated he was doubted if he could live even a few days, but hoje buoyed him up, and when his fiance arrived on the late train Monday evening in company with her father, he was well enough to receive them. But the excitement and joy of meeting proved too great a test for him, and brought on a pro fuse hemorrhage, which many thought might end in death. But the use of stim ulants judiciously administered gave him sufficient strength to go through the mar riage ceremony yesterday morning, at ten o'clock. This unusually impressive cere mony was performed in the room of the bridegroom, who lay white and still on his bed, by the father of the bride, Rev. J. N Pierce. There were but two witnesses to this deathbed marriage, and they say that all passed oif smoothly and quietly, though the bride could hardly keep back her tears. in uuyam. came io icu,, noping 10 j thejr m:islodoll leeth. ne picked the ,iccoci inu n au.iuWiMucoi con- llbbcr out of their s,ls.,enders ; he was ll-, sumption But he came too late, thejatal niL,ek he wag mj,d hc wouJ het he germs oi mis ureau disease were loo iirniiy : i.r ronfi ti cl ,.irL. nn,i ilMv. tt,ttM, to be eradicated by even the genial hi hcp than their seIH mark Tfiey bet aud balmy air that sweeps over u p . fc. vu u.i prairies of Western Texas, and he U fv, ' flil- i,:n, i' ' MASHING A MASHER.

No sooner had Hubbard followed the usher to the corridor than the angry husband, a much smaller man, confronted him and planted his clenched list with tremendous force just beneath his eye. The blow started the blood, loosened half a dozen teeth, aud left marks which weeks will not efface. It was accompanied bv languageof the most stinginc kind, the al- leged indecent conduct of the lawver bein'gi characterised with great Jreedom. The ushers and police rushed up and sepa- rated Hall and his victim, but were uu- able to make an arrest,as the latter stoutly refused to enter a complaint. Mr. Hall - ill was very anxious to be arrested, and de- clared that he should take supreme satis-1 faction in showing Hubbard up in court, but the latter was of the opinion that the a flair did not require further airing, and, summoning his wife from her seat, got away from the hall as quickly as possible.

"What did vou sav, sir?" replied the law editor in an interrogative manner, as he i..iz.d fixedly into the surrounding atmos phere. cMy remark resumed the personal friend of St. Ju lien, "was intended to con vey the idea that when it comes to writing anything about a horse race the average Jaw editor is as certain to fail at the first hurdle as Maud S. is to beat an omnibus with eighteen passengers in it. Fin not an editor myself nothing but a simple, blue eyed deck hand but if I ever made such breaks as some people do when they tackle a subject so completely interwoven with our social fabric as is horse racing, I would at once curb my journalistic pro pensities and start a peanut fake on some prominent street corner." "I presume you refer," said the law edi tor, still regarding the atmosphere with great attention, "to an item which I hasti ly tossed ofl" for to-day's paper about a suit before Judge Blodgett, relative to a race which took place last summer, in which the animals respectively designated as Belle of Nelson aud Wolverton were among the contestants?" "That's the item," said the horse re porter. "You tossed that off, did you ?" The law editor nodded. "AVell," remarked the authority on curby hocks, "if you had only tossed it so far that it would have landed somewhere else except in the Tribune office, the hot blood of shame would not now be mantling the editor's brow. That was a little the sickest item that I ever got mv peepers on, and the next time you feel like tossing oft another one vou will greatlv subserve the i 1 i. a f 1 I 1 esi iniereMs oi jouruaiihiu o going ou io me i;iKt'-uu!iL iiiiu lituiiig cum. lilt. 1 ?'! t t. .1 ?. ; ! l ernans vmi win ue miki emui'Mi "Perhaps vmi will point out where that item Was incorrect.! point out where that item Was it very bad V ' 'Well, I should mutter. It reads like you got the word on a break and never struck vour ralt again until the heat was over. In the first place, it calls Wolverton i a trotting hose, doesn't it.' The law editor glanced at a copy of the paper and nodded assent. "Now everybody." resumed the compiler of the 2:.0 list, "except perhaps a China man or two in Wyoming, knows that Wolverton was a thoroughbred runner and couldn't trot a lick. There's a fine send oft to give an item" and the yon ng man's upper lip curled haughtily. "Then after trvinff to tell what kind of a race it was that the horse was in, and not stating whether it was on the flat, over hurdles or a steeplechase, you calmly allude to Belle of Nelson as a stallion! Now, if I had a seven year old boy that didn't know that old yellow mare I would send him to an asy lum for incurables. The idea of referring to Belle of Nelson a3 'him' makes me tired, and causes the dim vista of the fntnre to assume a dull, cheerless hue." "Well," said the law editor, "when I was on the Rockford Gazette " "Oh, you came from Rockford, did you ? That was all right Rockford is a good place to leave but you were headed the wrong way whan you started. You should have steered for Kenosha." By this time the elevator had whizzed through the air to the fourth story, and both gifted journalists got out. The horse reporter went straight to the managing ed itor's room. ' "You ought to put a new man on the law reporting," he said. "Yes," replied the managing editor, "I know I had. There are a lot of chumps like you around here every day telling me what to do.
