The editor of a prominent periodical had among his contributors one bright but er ratic genius, who always seasoned his mat ter with the spice of humor. One day the editor called him in and told him he want ed him to bring in several articles without any fun ahout them. "But how can I doit v. pleaded the con tributor. "I don't know how, but I know you can, replied the editor. , "Well, will you take my judgment on the articles?" "If you promise to be serious, I will." "All right, I think I may be able to sat isfy you that they are serious." Then he went away, and the next day returned and placed a bundle of papers on the editor's desk, which that worthy im mediately proceeded to examine. After a minute or two, he looked up and said in amazement : ""Why, what's all this? Haven't you given me the wrong stuff?" "I guess not. What s wrong? "Why, here's a bill of $15 for board, an other of $5 for washing, another of $50 for clothes, another of $10 for pew rent, and heaven only knows what's in the rest of the pile." "Well, what's wrong? There ain't any of them receipted, is there ?" "No, not as far as I ve seen : but 1 don t understand why you should bring them here." "Didn't you say you wanted some arti cles without any fun in them, and didn't you say you d take my judgment on their being serious, and could I have found any thing with less fun in it than what I have brought you? If you don't accept my judgment in this matter, I want to quit light now. "I catch on. But don t quit. 1 ve been there myself, and I can see clearly that you have an excellent sense of the serious. I've got a few old manuscripts of the same sentiment on file, and I've not been able to see anything funny in them these many years !" Then they went out and looked through a glass darkly. , New Bloomfield, Miss., Jan. t, 1880. I wish to say to you that I have been suffer ing for the last five years with a severe itch ing all over. I have heard of Hop Bitters and have tried it. I have used up four bot tles, and it has done me more good than all the doctors and medicines that they could use on or with me- I am old and poor but feel to bless you for such a relief by your medi cine and from torment of the doctors. I have had fifteen doctors at me. One gave me seven ounces of solution of arsenic ; another took four quarts of blood from me. All they could tell was that it was skin sickness. Now, after these four bottles of your medicine, my skin is well, clean and smooth as ever. HENRH KNOCHE. When a pickpocket gets out . of practice, it takes a long while for him to get his hand in.

If you, reader, have dyspep sia, constipation, biliousness, or any disorder arising from impure blood, begin taking Wheat Bitters.

All Druggists. 6 "Get up like a man, and take care of your self." Get a bottle of Wheat Bitters, it will make a new man of you, no matter what your trouble may be. No such remedy was ever before offered to the public. $1. Didn't Want a Girl. Last summer my wife's health was all run down, and she want ed me to hire a girl to do the work.

Geaman paper. , . No matter whether it was Julius Caesar or some later sovereign who put these piles in the Rhine, the objctf the piano mak ers in securing them is japparent. It is found that worm-eaten .and partly decayed logs make the best sounding-boards for pi anos. Within a few years piano firms have sent agents through Connecticut to find, fallen and partly decayed chestnut logs, and such timber jhas been sold at good prices, after the owners had consider ed it entirely useless.

TIIE GERMAN CARP. In answer to an inquiry with regard to the German carp, the food fish about which much has been written of late, we would say that although public attention has but recently been called to it in this country as a valuable food fish, yet it was bred and well known in China many cent uries ago. By careful culture the Chinese have greatly improved the fish, both in re spect to its size and quality, and it was from the. Chinese stock that thoae sprung which have been brought to this country. The Carp family of fish, embraces many varieties characterized especially by having soft fins. .The gold fish belongs to thia family, but the more common species is the cyprinus carpio, a native of the east, introduced into Europe in the fourteenth century, and from there introduced into this country. How the species under con sideration happens to be called the Ger man carp, we have not the means of know ing. The national fish and game commission ers have a large number of yearling carp which are to be distributed to those having suitable facilities in the way of ponds, and rne nsn so cusinDutea win oe unaer gov ernment protection for the space of three years, j lhey; will be furnished tree ot cost, the commissioners only charging the first cost of the tin cans containing them. The German carp will thrive the best in warm, stagnant, muddy water, where most other and choicer food nsh cannot live at all ;, in fact it is essential to the existence of ! the carp that the water be of that temperature which will produce grass in its muddy bot tom upon which the nsh feeds. It is a vegetable eater and does not destroy the young of its own or any other species. .Each medium-sized female carp will de posit from June to August, on the weeds, grass and sticks, from four to six hundred thousand eggs annually, and if not too much imbedded in the mud, these eggs will hatch in about two weeks after they are deposited. If there is plenty of food, the young fry, if they hatch in June, will be three or four inches long in September, when its season of growth ceases. , i i In' this latitude, the caTp will go into winter quarters and remain in a hibernated state through the winter. Before this happens,; they exeayate a"place in the mild wnipn .is. caueu , a. iteme i ww mis xney place themselves, with the tan elevated a little aboye; the head, go to. sleep and ire main so uhtil the advent of warm weather recalls them to life; In warmer countries, where the season is long and food abund ant,- the yearling carp grows . yefy.rapidly, and at the end ; of its second seasons' growth attains a length of a foot and a half to two feet, and weighs from three to four pounds. All its : growth is made in about tour months, and while J it gams nothing during its winter lethargy , "it loses nothing. The carp haB'not the nne flavor ot many of iur food fishes, nor could this be expect ed when we consider that its. natural habit is k mud hole, put as if is a purely vegeta ble feeder; it is 'muck-better than would naturally1 b6 expected from its situation, and is nutritious and wholesome. ," Its great merit .is in its, fecundity and rapid growth. :j Fronj: Vhat1. has been , said, the situation; where the carp will thrive "will Be readily understood. ' It will not survive in cold, rapidly running water; and"' will not ao at ail well in ponds havingia"i.sandy or gravelly bottom, or even common loam. It requires, mud from which its foodt'&t grase and weeds will sprmg up. As a, "Veg etable feeder, it will not take .readily to any bait, though they are frequently caught on a hook which has-been baited svithr a bread . paste ball sweetened;with hoheyor some vegetable food winch ha been' feet to it, such as green peas, lettuce, etot.

' - The death of Bev; Charles T. Brooks, says tne uroomyn unronicie, reminds us of a little anecdote. At a ted party enven by a member of Kev. Dr. Thayer's church. the leading Orthodox church of Newport, one summer evening, some 15 years ago, a lady remarked to Dr. Thayer that she had a great mind to chide him for his intimacy with that Unitarian, Rev. Mr. Brooks. "I must admit," said the reverend gentleman, that Mr. iirooks and 1 are very good friends, and that I am really very fond of him. He is a most delightful oompanion, and . we often go a fishing together. - To day, however, while we were on the fishing ground he shocked me toy a little' exhibi tion of profanity." "Profanity 1" exclaim ed the Orthodox sister, "yoU don't really mean that Mr. 1 Brooks is profane ?" "I must confess that he was somewhat' to- day," said good. Dr. Thayer. "You see it happened thus we were at anchor with our lines out, Brother Brooks, the skipper and'I, when, after some tedious waiting, the skipper cried out, 'I had a d d good bite then,' whereupon Brother Brooks, quickly responded, So did II'" . Sif tings : ; One of , our acquaintances from the Del .Valle settlement does not comei to Austin . very often, but not long since he attended a theatrical performance for the second time in his life. He : was very indignaut next day, and we asked him what was the matter. "I'll never go to another theater as long as I live." . - ' ,"" "Why what's occurred to prejudice you against the theaters ?" , "Well, I hked the first act first-rate','but when it was nearly through I read on the play bill that the next act would take place in New York, and I just got . up and left.

They played pretty , much the same crame on jme down., in. -New- Orleans five years ago. I had already paid my ad mission when I found out by the play bill that the last act of the show was ten years afterward and when I kicked they refused to -pay me my money back and fired me out. Some years - ago a gentleman, in Hart ford :on re-furnishing ' nis " house gave - or ders to a well-known designer, to have & set of furniture made for his sitting' room.

A few weeks ago the gentleman moved, and after havingjaffered -the .chair i to- several 1 pdor parishes, to be used as a bishop's chair, was finally compelled to sell it to a second hand dealer at whose store it may now- be seen with the naked eye. - n . ; " ' i ' ,, '' '" , Dr, "John .Brown, of .

Obedient f to- tire injunction, the patient presented "lnmself at the fortnight's end, with a clean' tongue and a happy faoe. Proud of , the fulfill ment of his promise, Dr. Brown said "ijet me see what l gave you.'

In sfche year .1839 a phenomenon appear ed in the musical world which attracted considerable., Mtentipni in, Germany. A gentleman well known as an enthusiastic musical amateur of Darmstadt,in the Grand Duchy of Hesse, hadv female- spaniel, called Poodle." By striking the animal whenever musio was played, and a false note struck,- she was made 1 to howl. At lsst the threat of the upraised stick was equally effective, presently a mere glance oi tne master s eye, produced tne same howl, and at last tne false not itself. A German paper of the- period says : "At , the present time there is not a concert ; or an opera at Darmstadt to which Mr. Fred erick S. and his wonderful dog are not in vited, or, at least, the dog. The voice of the prima donna, the instruments of the hand, whether . violin, clarionet, hautbois or bugle all of them must execute their parts' in' perfect ' harmony;' otherwise Poo dle looks at his master; "erects : its ears, shows its grinders and howls outwright. Old or new pieces, known or unknown to the dog, produce the same effect." It must not be supposed that the discrimina tion of the creature was confined to the mere execution of 'musical compositions. Whatever may have been the case at the outset of its musical career, towards its close a vicious modulation or a false rela tion of parts produced the same result. "Sometimes to tease the dog," says our German authority, "Mr. S. and his friends take a pleasure in, annoying the canine critic by emitting all . sorts of discordant sounds, from instrument and voice. On such occasions the creature loses all self command,its eves shoot forth fiery flashes, and long and frightful howls respond to the inharmonious concert of the mischiev ous bipeds. But the latter must be care ful not to go too far, because when the dog's patience is much tried it "becomes savage, and endeavors to bite both its per secutors and their instruments. -London Society.

Mr. Topnoody and his wife were warmly discussing, the woman question Wednesday evening after tea, and Mr. Topnoody was defending the man.

' Can't they make mistakes the same as men do ?" "Oh, yes ; , they; can make even fools of themselves sometimes." "You don't mean it ! I'm surprised that you would acknowledge it, my dear, after whatyou have said." ; ""Well, I do acknowledge it, and will go further and say that I have done as much myself." ; "Ha, ha," laughed Topnoody, "you of all women, to say that ! I'd like to ask, my dear, wherein you ever made such a fool of yourself as to own up to it?" "You needn't laugh, Topnoody. I did it when I married r you, and I've had it thrown at me forty times and I ain't in a position to deny it very successfully either. " Topnoody stopped laughing. Drum mer. : i: . A gentleman making a tour of South Carolina with the purpose of ascertaining the true condition of affairs, relates that at every depot and railway station he found a number of white men, the greater part of them carrying shot guns and accompanied by dogs,, sitting idly around. On inquiry as to the general condition of the country, he was invariably told that ''things were in a bad .way," . While all acknowledged that the soil was fertile and the climate de. lightful, they insisted that , there was no growth, progress or prosperity. On press ing for a reason for this paradoxical state of affairs, he was told, "the dr-d niggers won't work." , While the negro race has its average amount of lazy and trifling peo ple, it struck the inquirer as a proper conundrum for the South Carolina grum blers to ask why the d d white folks did -not set the example ?
