best course to 'be pursued utnder the
'aircumstances :

1peop)lo of CollOton burned Grant in

"do not and will not recognize his
infamous order .to disregard our
right to celebrate Washington's
birthday with becoming honor."
Mr. Brown's Matrimonial Method.
"Brown, I don't soc how it is that
your girls all marry off so soon as
they got old enough, while none of
mine can marry."
"Oh! flint's simple enough. I
marry my girls off on the buckwheat
straw principle."
"But what is that principle? I
never heard of it before."
"Well, I used to raise a good deal
of buckwheat, and it puzzled me how
to get rid of the straw. Nothing
would eat it, and it was a great
bother to me. At last I thought of
a plan. I stacked my buckwheat
str tw Nicely and built a high rail
fence arond it. My cattle of course
concluded that it was something
good, and at once tore down the
fence and began to eat tho straw.
I dogged them away and put up the
fence a few times, but the more I
drove them away the more anxious
they became to eat the straw.
After this had been repeated a few
times, the cattle determined to eat
the straw, and eat it they did, every
bit of it."
"As I said, I marry my girls off on
the sifme principle. When a young
man that I do not like begins calling
on my girls, I encourage him in
every way I can. I tell him to come
often and stay as long as ho pleases,
and I take pains to hint to the girls
that I think they'd better set their
caps for him It works first rate.
He don't make many calls, for the
girls treat him as coolly as they can.
But when a young fellow that I like
comes around, a man that I think
would suit me for a son-in-law, I
don't let hin make many calls be
fore he is given to understand that
he isn't wanted around ny house.
I tell the girls, too, that they shall
not h; ve aiything to do with him
again. The plan always works first
rate. The young folks begin to
pity each other, and the riext thing I
know they are engaged to be mar
riod. - When I see that they are de.
termined ito marry. I always give in
and pretend to m:ike the best of it.
'Il it's the way I nanage it "
A Coun-T S:ENE.-T'ie Baltimore
American s tys : "During the tri. 1
of a case in the criminal court in
incident occuarre(i the't almost pro
duce 1 a pahic. The courtroom was
crowded with spectitors, several of
whom wore standing on a raised
platform near a stove with an open
grate. One id vi lutl got so near
the st-ve that his coat tails took
fire from the bmrning coals. As socn
as he felt the fire in his rear lie gave
one look behind, took in the -situa..
tion at a glance, and made a spring
that would have (lone honor to an
acr'obat. The consequence was that
a number of persons were knocked
down, while others, thinking that
th~e floor had given awvay, or some
other serious accident had occurred,
madec for the door. The confusion
wvas general for a few seconds, but
when the real nature of the occur
rence became known, quiet was re
stored. The man with the burning
coat nevor stop pod until he reached
a snow pile, into which lhe plunged.
He wvent in in a frock coat, but came
out with a short sack."
Timi SPRAoUES.-TheO fate of the
Spragues, who tried to avoid bank'..
ruptcy b~y a composition with their
creditors, is thus told by the New
port. Rhode Island, News:
"It scomns to be conceded that the
firm of A. & WV. Sprague are unable
to retrieve their fallen fortunes. It
will be remembered that they gave
16,000 notes on which they were to
pay interest. The business de
pr'ession is such that they cannot
meet this interest as it becomes due,
and there is now little hope that the
great house will recoyer from its
embar'rassmen ts."
CAnnrovs C.ARiPENTE.--hen David
Spryv (the colored man who robbed
ox-Senator Owens) was sen tenced
by Judge Carpenter to five years'
inprisonment in the penitentiary, ho
burst out crying, drew a knife and
cut a terrible gash in his neck, but
without doing serious injury. The
Judge, who is a very matter-of-fact
somebody, said that the Court was
not often treated to such dramatie
scenes--doubtless; it would be bet,
ter for the community if some of
them were more successful.--C'o
lumbia .Phwni.
A BurntrAIT BoN MOT.-While
Senator Howe was singing his
bloody-shirt song bekore the Electo
tal . mmnnission , to-day, George
Bancro 4, who was one of the speta
ters, drppped into a slhum lg. Bep

A Magntfioen% Usurer.
An extraordinary case of usury is
now being tried by the Correctional.
Tribunal of the ,Seine. ' The cul
prit is a rich Englishman named
Edwards. The total azhount of
money lent by him during the past
two or three years is put down at
about 2,000,000 francs, for which he
charged an interest of 1,000,000, or
at the rate of fifty per cent. Among
the number of peroons who have
had re'ourse to the obliging purse
of Mr. Edwards figures Prince Taher.
By-ben-Alad, who is described as "a
Turk of importance, and son-in-law
to Mustapha Fazyl-Pacha." Having,
like most of his countrymen, run
through his fortune in Paris in 1874,
our Eastern Prince, it appears,
waited one morning on Mr. Ed"
wards and said, ':My dear sir, my
wife has just presented me with an
heir, and I desire to reward her
with a gift worthy of our rank.
Will you oblige me t" Of course he
was happy to do so, and forthwith
lent him 50,000 francs at his usual
rate of interest. But the birth. of
an heir was only a ruse to get
money. Prince Talier had succeed
ed in finding a jeweler Willing to let
him have 200.000 francs' worth of
diamonds if lie could pay a quarter
down, and as soon as he got the
diamonds he pawned them to Ed
wards for another 50,000 francs.
The case is -likely to lead to furthor
piquant disclosures.
A little boy said to his mother the
other morning : "Ma, I had the
beautifulest dream last night you
over saw. I dreampt that I wouldn't
go to school, and that you went out
into the yard and cut a good long
switch, but just as you were going
to give me an awful dressin' the
world came to an end I Didn't I
get out of it easy, though-i"
Mary: "Why don't you road, Tom,
instead of lolling about 7"
Tom: "Got nothing to read."
Aunt Mary : "There's your first
prize in Monsieur Jolivet's French
class--a most delightful book!"
Tom: "How can I read that t It's
in French. "-Punch.
Bald-headed gentleman in the
pirquet, to young lady in dress
circle, during an affecting passage
in the play : "I respect your emo

tears on my head."

daughter)-"Now, then, m'um,
jump in if you're goin'. This ain't
a kissin' train ! 'F you want to ki a
