Tha followiDR amusing reminiscenca connected with the history of a famous Naahvillo hotd that was numborcd among the institution! of th pait, long fears before tbe war, is told by tbe Franklin llevtew. which says that tho irincipal actors are still living, ono in laury and, tbe othsr in "Williamson : While the old inn stood on the square in Nashville, it was the favorito hotel of the traveling public. Un one occasion among tho many guests thero assembled were Harvey 11 , from Williamson county, and John O , from Maury county, intimate friends and both con vi vial in their temperament. Tney had imbibed freely of spirits, and were in that happy condition in which they con sidered tho world all their own, and were rather noisy in their demonstrations. Some of the visitors complained of their noise, and the proprietor, nftor some per suasion, induced the gentlemen to retire to bed. Ho conducted them to thoir room, saw thorn safely lodged in bed, wailed patiently until thoy alopt.-and then drew the bed, which, as was then to some extent fashionable, was attached to tho celing by cords, up nearly to the celing, raising them somo nino or ten feet from the floor. Everything passed off quietly, the gentlemen sleeping soundly until 1 or 2 o'clock in tho morning, when John O., who was sleeping behind, called out to bis friend, "tlarvoy. get me the water ; tho pitcher is on tbe table ia the corner." llurvcy domurred a little, but, finally yielding to earnest solicitations, ho threw himself out of bed, in tho pitch darknefs ol the room, to the floor bensalh. lie was unprepared for a leap, and the shock of the fall surprised him. Instantly he conjectured that he had fallen down stairs, perhaps through a trap door ; so ho got down on his hands and knees and commenced groping about to find somo means ot ascent to tho room above The delay occasioned by theso niovo roents was tortuo to .John, who was parched up with thirst. So ho culled out, in language more profane than po lite: "tlarvl what in the d I aro you doing?" Tho answer camo from the depths below : "John I I fell down stairs, and can't find tho steps to get up there again." "Well, must I come down there, to show you tho way up? "I wish you would, John, for I in d d if I can hod tho steps." John, thoroughly vexed at the stupidity of his friend, sprang out ot bed, wncn lo I he, too, went whirling through tho air into the distance below, and soun found himself sprauling on the floor hesido his companion. "By G d I ilarv ! I fell down Htnirs myself," was his first exclamation. Then thu two commenced a search for tho staircase, Iiddcr, anything to enable them tn get out of this deep abyss. Round and round they went, upon their hands and knees. 1 bey found a table, upon which they discovered a pitcher of water, Quenching their thirst they resutnei their search. Their clothing had been deposited on the foot of tho bed, so this was beyond their reach, and tbo weather was intensely cold. They must keep moving or trccze. I ho weary round waa kept up until the gray dawn began to streak tho east, when they ascertained their true condition. Stealthily they lowered the bed, hastily donned the clothing and only remained long enough lo pay tbeir bill to tbe night olerk, when mounting tbeir horses thoy made tracks lor their homes. The Two Bootblacks. During a slight lull in business tho other day two little bootblacks, ono wbito and ono black, were standing on a corner doing nothing, when the white bootblack agreed to black the black bootblack's boots. The black bootblack was of course willing to have bis boots blaokod by his fellow bootblack, and the bootblack nho bad agreed to black the black bootblack boots went to work. When the white bootblack had blacked ono of tho black bootblack's boots till it shone in a man ncr that would make any bootblack proud, this bootblaok who had agrcod to black tbe black bootblack s boots ra fused to black tbe other boot of th black bootblack until tho black bootblack who bad oonsented to have the white boot black black his boots, should add five cents to the amount tbe white bootblack had made blacking other men's boots This tho bootblaok whose boot had been blacked refused to do, saying that it was good enough for a black bootblaok to have one boot blacked, and he dido t care whether tbe boot that tbe bootblack hsdn't blaoked was blacked or not. This made the bootblack who had blacked the blaok bootblack's boot as angry as a boot black often gets, and he vented his black wrath by spitting upon tho blaoked boot of the black bootblack. This roused tbe latent passions of the black bootblack, and ho proceeded to boot tho white bootblack with the boot whioh the white bootblaok had blacked. A fight then ensued, in whioh the white bootblaok, wbo had refused to black tbe unblocked boot of tho black bootblack, blaoked the black bootblack's visionary organ, and in which the black bootblack wore all the blacking off bis blackod boot in booting the white bootblack. The fraternity of bootblacks afterwards convened and denounced 'the aotion of the white and black bcotblaok as one of the blackest in tbe pages of bootblack history. Cleve land Leader. In tha Galaxv. a cood atnrv ia told of j , D j " a college president, who, meeting on the cars a student whose character for so briety was not good, and whose then ap pearance evidencod a recent debauch, ip proached him and solmnly and regret fully said, "Been on a drunk?" "So 1ivo 1," was tbo immediate rejjily. Mark Twain as Edllor-lu-Chirf. Mark Twain, in his new volume, 'Roughing It," gives his experience as local editor of the Virginia City (Novada) Daily Enterpriso, and incidently credit's the "leading writers" of a daily journal In a manner as rare as it usually is deserved. In the caso mentioned Mark had tired of his labor as local editor, He says : I wanted variety of rome kind. It came. Mr. Goodman went away for a week and left me tho post of chici editor. It destroyed tue. llio first day I wrote my Icadsr in tho forenoon. The second ay 1 bad no subject, and put it oil till owning, and then copied an elaborate editorial out of the American Cyclopedia, tbat ateadlatt iriendot the editor all over the land. The fourth day I "fooled around" till midnight, nnd then fell back on tho Cyclopedia again. The fifth day I cudgeled ray brain till midnight, and then kept tbo press waiting while I penned some bitter personalities on six liferent people 1 he sixth day I labored ntil tar into tho nigbt and brougbt forth -nothing. 'J ho panor wont to Dress without an editorial. The soventh day I resigned. On tho eighth day Mr. Good man roturned and found six dueln on his hands my persunalities had borne fruit. Nobody, except bo wbo baa tried it, knows what it is to be an editor. It is easy to scribble local rubbub, with the facts all belorc you; it is easy to string out a correspondence from any locality; but it 19 unspeakablo hardship to write dttoriaU. bubjects aro tbe troubles- he dreary lack of them, I mean. Every day it is a drag, drau', drag think and worry and suffer all the world is u'dcad blank, and yet the editorial column must be filled. Duly give the editor a subject, and his work is done it is no trouble lo write it up, but fancy bow you would feel if you had to pump your brains dry every day in a week, fifty two weeks in the year. It makes one low spirited to think of it. The matter that each editor of a daily newspaper writes in the cotme of a year would till from lour to eight bulky volumes liko this book. Fancy what a library an editor's work would mako after wenty or thirty years service lot people often wonder that Dickens, Scott, liulwcr, Dumas, etc , havo been ublo lo produco so many books. If theso au- hors had wrnugbt ts voluminously as newspaper editors do, the result would be something to marvel at indeed. How editors can constitute this tre mendous labor, this exhausting consump tion of brain fibre (tor their work is creative, and not a mere mechanical lay ing up of facts like rcpurttng), day after day and year after year, is incomprehen sible. Preachers tako two months' holi day in midsummer, for they find that to produco two sermons a week is wearing in the long run. In truth it must be so, and it is so; and therefore how an editor can take from ten to twenty texts and build upon them from ten to twenty pains tak inc editorials a wcok , and keep it up all the year round, is further beyond com prehension than ever. Ever since 1 have survived my week as editor I have found at least one pleaauro in any newspaper that comes to my hand ; it is in admir ng tbe long columns of editorials, and wondering to myself how in tho mischief ho did it. Alexis as a Hero. Tho Emperor's third son, Alexis, is in tho naval service Somewhat more than a year ago, when holding tho rank of midshipman, the nagship in wtucn he was serving was wrecked on tho coast of Denmark. Tho Admiral ordered tho lifeboats to be low ercd, and directed Alexis to take chargo of tho first boat. 1 ho royal midebip man declined to oboy the order. It was peremptorily repeated: "I, your com mandtng othcer, order you in the boat. "Admiral, I cannot oboy you," said the young prince. "It would not become tho son ot the Emperor to be tbo brst lo leavo the ship. I shall remain with you to tho last. "Mut I shall put you un der arrest for disobedience of orders as soon as circumstances will allow me to do so." "I mean no disobedienco, but cannot obey," replied tbe youthful hero In time almost the entire crew reached the shoro in safety, only some four or fivo having perished in tbe transit Irom the ship. Among tha last to land wero the Admiral and the Grand Duke Alexin, Tents were lustily erected from tbe sails and spars saved from the wreck, and the rigid discipline of ship life was promptly resumed. I he young prince was placed under arrest for his previous diaobeui ence of orders. As soon as possible the uuestan Minister at uopconagen was informed of tho facts, and telegraphed them to tbo hmporor, from whom ho received tho following reply : "I approve ot tho act of tho admiral in placing iho midshipman under arrost for dtsobedt enco of orders, and I bless and kiss my son for disobeying tbem." A few months ago, a man married lady of New York for her monoy. Whe he got the money, he loved somebody else, and departed for tho "rolling prairies of tho West." His earthly possessions were burnt up in tho Chicago fire ; and then he camo back to new York and put up at tue Astor nouse without a cent I bis pookKt. Kemorso sened him (it most have been remorse), and ascertain ing tbe address of his lawful partner, he thus wroto to hor : "I am here, and penniless. Forgive tho past, and come to my arms again." Tbis is what she wrote back : "I'll come as noon u 1 can. Excuse delay, I've gono to have loaded head put on Iho caoo you left." Ho didn't wnit. HemorVi loiset. bim again, aad carried Aim of. Sen Him tip Another. The Toledo Blade tells the following good story of bow Mark Twain and Gris, the Fat Contributor, attempted to play a practical joke on John B. Gough, tho rooowned temperance lecturer, and how they didn't do it : "Keep your seat," said I, as my friend rose to go ; "I cannot help repealing that old boomerang joke attempted lo be played upon Gough by everybody's pet humorist, Mark Twain, and that Fal- stuffiun jokist, the Fat Contributor. It has been told beforo, but I should like to repeat it. stripping tho story from the falsehoods by which it was formerly em bellished." One evening Twain and Gris found themselves together at the Sherman House, in Chicago, B. F. (before the fire.) Driting about in search of the pictur esque, tbey followed the human stream 1 11 (to wear tho metaphor threadbare) thoy htranded on a bar Mr. Gough was staying at the house at tbo time, and be ing unwoll, had retired early. A bright tdCJ struck Twain' reallege tuiod. "Let's send htm up a cocktail I" Idea voted good and acted upon Waiter arrived at Mr. Gough's room : "Some mistake; never touch liquor." Waiter positive ; Mr. Gough more so. On tbo way down it occutred to the darkey that it was a pity tho cocktail should be wasted so he drank it and re potted "all right" at the bar. Twain and Gris, intensely delighted, thought they had caught tho lecturer napping. "Let's send him up another," said Oris. Same result ; cocktail receipted home by darkey. Excitement at lever heat. "(jivo bim a whiskey strong. Btrong. houted Twain. Disappearance of darkey, ditto cock tail. Report satisfactory, and the pre- ious pair tut their heads together and wero coococttng a plan lo mix liquors on tho temperance man, when Mr. Gough utcred the bar room, approached our eroes and said : I am afraid you rest under a misap- rchension. Seeing that I was being made the victim of somo practical joke, I followed the waiter down, and saw him rink tho liquor that I suppose you thought 1 had used. You wtll please ra frain from sending any more up, as I avc not felt tbe need of such drinks for years When tbe subject is brought up now to Iwain, be says tbat the fat Uonlrib tor "retired witnin nimsoit nice a greased telescope," but further says that he (I wain) "was never in Chicago; didn't know there was a Sherman Houso," etc. Well tako caro of yourself. Girls who Win. Tho time has passed away when a woman must be pale nd dclicato to bo called interesting when she must bo totally ignorant of all practical knowledge to bo called high bred whon she must know nothing ol the current political news ot the day, or bo called masculino and strong-minded. It is not a sign of high birth to be sickly or ignorant. Thoso who affect anything of the kind are bohind the times, and must skako up and air them selves mentally and physically, or drop under tho firm strides of common sense ideas, and bo crushed into utter insigni ficanco. In these days, an active, rosy faced girl, with brain quick and clear, warm, light heart, a temper quickly heated at intended insult or injury, and just as quick to forgive ; whose feet can run ih fast as her tongue and not put ber out ot breath; wbo is not afraid or freckles or to breathe the puro air of heaven, unre strained by the drawn curtains of a close carriage ; and, above all, who can speak her mind and give ber opinion on import ant topics which interest intelligent people, Is tho true girl wbo will mako good woman. The long, narrow, arched eyebrow is the prettiest, as we all know, but it is rare. It would not be so rare, however, if a littlo more care were taken in its cultivation during early youth. For instance, if a child's eyebrows should threaten to be thin, brush them softly every night with a little cocoanut oil, in order to pivo thorn a curve, pross them gontly between the thumb and forefinger after every ablution of tbe fuco or hands. Simple as this may seem, I havo known the most wonderful effects result Irom it. I have seen girls with wido straggling eyebrows, reduce them into in arch like shape within a year, solely by these meaus, and surely all will allow that tbey are permissible. About Juos. Somebody has been writing a chapter about ju6a. Worse paragraphs "by a jug full" bavo been published I The jug is a most singular utensil. A pail, tumbler or decanter may be rinsed, and you may satisfy your self by optical proof Ithat tho things aro clean ; but a jug has a little hole in the top and the interior is all darkness. No eye penetrates it no hand oan trove over its surface. You can clean it only by putting water into it and shaping it up and pouring it out. If tho water comes out clean, you Judge you have succeeded in purifying tho jug, and vice versa. It is so of the human noart. No mortal eye can look into its recess, but you can judge of its purity coly by what comes out of it. A iaday wished seat.

Staple Clerk H ailed la a Drug sure, Jem 15 U a wag. A pood joke to Jem ia both food and raiment, and when ever iberc is on opening for fun he "goos into" it. Jem was recently in a drug store, when a youth, apparently fresh from tlio "mountings," entered the store, and at once accosted Jem, stating that be was In t enroll of a job. "What kindtf a job?" inquired the wag. "O 1 a'mo-t .inything. I want to pet a kind of a genteel job ; l m tired o farm ing and con turn my hand to almost any- thinir " "Well, we want a man a good, strong, healthy man as samplo clerk." "What s the wages ( "Wages arc good ; tie pay S1,000 to a man in that situation. " "What's a feller got to do." ' Oh I merely to test mcdicinei, that's all. It requires a stout man and after ho gets used to it he doesn't mind it. You scewcoro very particular about the quulity of our medicines, ond before no nil nnv nn lent rvprv nnrrol. Von would be required to tako tay six or seven ounces of castor oil some days, with a dose of rhubarb, aloes, crotoo oil, and similar preparation. Some days you would. qot have to do anything ; but as a general thing you can count upon say from six to ten dopes or something daily. As to tho work, that docs not amount to much. Tho testing department simply would bo tho principal labor required of you, and, as 1 said before, it requires a person of very healthy organisation to endure it. Hut you look hearty, and I gucsa you would suit us. That yount; man (pointing to a very pale-faced, slim- looking youth who happened to bo pres ent,) has fillod tho place two weeks, but he is hardly stout enough to stand it ; wo should like to have you tako right hold, if you aro ready ; and if you say so, we II begin to-day.

We have heard a great deal of highway outrages of late, but did not docm tbat we should be called upon to ohroniole one, but such is the case. A physician living on Brooklyn Heights was recently hurrying homeward, quilo lato in tha evening, whun a man, apparently drunk, staggered out of a tavern and jostled bim. The good doctor did not wish to mike a disturbance, so he stepped asido and let the drunken man pass on. Tbo man's condition, however, did not prevent him from walking quiie fast, and he soon left tho doctor behind. The latter suddenly bethought himself to feel for bis watch. It was gone 1 But ho was equal to the occaeion. Taking his pistol from bis pocket, he ran after tho man, overtook and collared him.
