"COOKED HIS GOOSE."
Bow TVlie Toons; Man Oot the Best of 11. s i.lv.il. It was night, sweet, delicious night, the crisp, clear, moonlit October night of the temperate zone, one of those nights on which all tho poetry in a man's and woman's nature rises to the surface, and on which there is naught but love and calm delight in tho heart, says the New York Press. It was, therefore, strange to behold a young couple facing each other and re garding each other with looks so cold and chillingvthat an iceberg would have seemed like a furnace in their vicinity. "I know why you wish, me to leave you," he said in sharp arid metalie tones,. each syllable of which seemed to fall from his lips with a click. "Why?" she asked, with a toss of her queenly head. "Becaute,"he hissed, "because you expect a visit from my rival." "What If I do?" she said. Then, throwing a colder glitter into her eyes than had previously Illumined them,, he added: "Perhaps he loves me better than you do." "Oh, he loves you," laughed the youth, sardonically; "without doubt he loves you, for I've heard him praising you." "Heard him praising mol" The cold glitter left her eyes. "What did he ay?" "He said you were pretty yes, pret ty. I do not seek to hide tho fact from you." "He said I was prettyP' "Yes, ho said you were pretty al most as pretty as your friend, Miss Somely." Her f oco became deathly white. "Almost as pretty as Miss Somelyl" sne repeated mechanically. She was silent while you could have counted twenty, or perhaps twenty one. v Then she said: "Hadn't we better go in, John, in stead of staying out here at the garden gate?" And as they passed out of the moon light into the house, he said softly tc himself: "I've cooked his goose!" DUTCH APPETITES. Tho Faro laid Before a Stranger In the Land of Excellent Trenuluuen. A stranger dining for the first time in a Dutch tavern sees a few novelties. First of all he is struck by the great siio and thickness of tho plates, propor tionate to the national appetite; and in many places he will find a napkin of fine white paper, folded in a three-cornered shape and stamped with a border of flowers, a little landscape in tho cor ner, and the name of the hotel or cafe, with a bon appctit in large blue letters. The stranger, says the author of Hol land and Its People, to be sure of his facts, will order roast beef and they will bring him half a dozen slices as large as cabbage leaves; or a beefsteak, and he Is presented with a sort of cush ion of raw meat, enough to satisfy a family; or a fish, and there appears a marine animal nearly as long as .the table; and with each of these come a mountain of boiled potatoes and a pot of vigorous mustard. Of bread, a little thin slice about as big as a dollar, most displeasing to, us Latins, whose habit it is to devour bread in quantities, so that in a Dutch tavern one must be con stantly asking for more, to the great amusement of the waiters. W.ch any one of these three dishes, and a glass of Bavarian or Amsterdam beer, an honest man may be said to have dined. As for wine, whoever has the cramp in his purse will not talk of wine in Holland, since it Is extremely dear; but, as purses hero are pretty generally robust, almost all middle-class Dutch men and their betters drink it; and there are certainly few countries where so great a variety and abundance of foreign wines are found as in Holland, French and Rhine wines especially. HATED A REDCOAT. Ben Batler Tell of III lloyUh Enmity for the British. I had as deep-seated a prejudice against a British redcoat as our turkey gobbler exhibited to a red petticoat, when he drove my sister into the house. Thus I was taught that the highest achlevement4n Hie was to get behind a stone wall and shoot a Britisher, and I longed for the time when I should grow up to do it. So thoroughly was this drilled into me that in after life it was a matter for reasoning on my part whether I should treat an Englishman decently, writes Gen. B. F. Butler, in the New England Magazine. The difference between this feeling and that which I had toward the Frenchmen, who fought us with the In dians, and who helped the savages scalp us, was that the French were poor fellows who did not know any bet ter; and, besides, the French had helped us in the revolution against the British, so that we would forgive them, but the Britishers, never! Is the town of Orneville, Me., the au thorities cannot find anyone to collect the town taxes. Thomas Hacksit, of Reed Station, Ind., amused himself by tossing up a silver dollar and catching it in his mouth until the coin lodged in his throat A surgical operation was necessary to remove it. A ietter sent from Mauch Chunk, Pa., to Calcutta, via Queenstown, and Immediately mailed back to Mauch Chunk, via Hong Kong and San Fran cisco, made the circuit of tho globe in alxty-elght days. The little child of Mr. and Mrs. Rus sell, of Flndlay, O., died recently on the day that he predicted would end his life. Ho selected the suit he wished to be buried in, made other arrangements for his funeral and at the appointed time lay back and expired. Aokjjts Wanted. Kreo prepaid outfit to energetic men.

They have passed over the divide and are on the down grade of life's allotment of years. They came hore before we did, and to them we can credit some of our im portance and prosperity. Colossal fortunes have been built upon their efforts of earlier days. Their hope is gone, their sun has set. They are the corner stones of tho great indus tries that we see around us.
