There were .'5,000 barrels of Yankee apjiles shipped to Queen Vitoria" folks last week. . Deaf and dumb parties, are the latest. Anybody who talks is charged five cents a wurd lor charity.

Well, now. shall we go right along and cut down the army a little more, or will lie feel too lonesome i f we discharge the other one. Scientists claim that Miioking injures the eyesight. But this is not so. The boy with a .stump in his mouth can see his father ten streets away. Joseih Miller, of Bochesíer, S. Y., pa'd the most foolish bet of the season by pr mienading the street in the rain, at tired in his wife's night-gown.

"My wife," remarked a prominent manufacturer, "never attend auction , She went once, jus;t before we were mai ried, and seeing a friend on the opposite bide, nodded politely, whereupon the auctioneer knocked down a patent cradl , and asked her where she wished it de livered."

He lias kill, d, since his advent to Antelope, rati le.-uakcs .whose skin bebas retain ed, which, when stretched out will measure sixty yards. The Commo dore has a long stick with a roich on one end, between which he has fixci' a thong, wiih which he captures these little pets by pushing the fork over the neck, holding I he snake secure un til he deeapiiates them. He tells us that after skinning the snake he cuts the meat up into slices three or four inches loug, puts it into salt water for a lew hours, when he takes it out and fries it iu hot lard until it turns to a brown color, when it is ready for the table, aud is unsurpass ed by any meat in the world. A Bit of Romai.ce in Colorado The brigand style of some of the mountaineers is very attractive to the fancy of sonic of the young ladies of of the Eastern States, who aro touting through Colorado or are visiting there.
