XST'lfwe were abundantly supplied with coin
ice should not ask patron to remit, but one of
the very hardest tilings to do in this world, is to
run a printing office on "promises." Our busi
ness is all in small amounts, and it U about as
easy to pay one time as another, hence tee trut
that our patrons will freely respond to our calls
for the sums due en account.
Scraps of Fancy.
Compiled from our Exchanges.
A woman may not be able to shar
pen a pencil or hold an umbrella, but
she can pack more articles into a trunk
than a man can into a one horse wagon.
Blond hair is coming to the front
again as the most fashionable oolor. ;
Ladies who gave their 'blonde -switches
to the grasshopper sufferers will soon)
regret their generosity.
The wifeof( Chief Justice Waite is
credited with having said, when she
heard itTeported that Mars has three
moons, 'Think of .your people living
in a planet where tthere is no shady
side of the street ataiight."
An invalid Frenchman who hired
a horse every evening from a livery
stable, particularly desired the hostler
to see that the horse had nothing to

A couple of young fellows
who pride themselves on their elite
bearing, handsome Dundreary whisk
ers and moustache, called at a house on
Asylum Hill, Wednesday, to look at .a
room which was for rent. "Is the
lady of the house in?" they inquired of
the' servant girl who answered the bell.

mans what's come to fix the sthove?"
Doe3 the young man who persists
in being a loafer, ever reflect how
much less it would cost to be a decent,
respectable .man? Anybody can be a
gentleman if he chooses to be, but it is
mighty expensiye to be a loafer. It
costs time days, month? , year of it

and finally all -.regret and consideration
At a Murphy meeting in Ken
tucky recently Colonel Ben. .Selby
delivered an eloquent address, in the
course of which he gave an illustration
of the suffering of man afflicted with
delirum tremens. A lady in the audi

timonial to his success:
Ben. Selby aptly undertakes
To imitate a man with ".snakes,'
And every mortal son of Adam
Can see at once that Ben. has had 'em.
Col. Robert Ingersoll, in allud
ing to the story concerning his father's
severity, writes: "My father was a
man of great natural tenderness, and
loved his children almost to insanity.
The little severity he had was produced
by his religion. Like most of his time,
he thought Solomon knew something
about raising children. For my part,
I think he should have known better
than tt place the least confidence in
the advice of a man so utterly idiotic
as to imagine he could be hajny with
Sir Isaac Newton, a very wis.e
and godly man, was once examining a
new and very fine globe, when a gentle
man came into his study who did not
believe in God, but declared the world
we live in came by chance. He was
much pleased with the handsome
globe, and asked:
"Who made it?"
"Nobody," said Sir Isaac; "it hap

The United States war steamer
Huron pounded to pieces on rocks
north of Norfolk on the 24th. Out of
134 officers and men but 34 were
saved. The story of those well ac
quainted with the coast is that the
Huron got caught in the height of the
gale, and while trying to hold on head
to the wind, her machinery gave way,
her sails were useless and she drifted
Something is the matter with our
sister city all the time. The Telegram
says that now, since the river has be
come so swift and drift has commenced
running, the steamers find it difficult
to navigate. Tuesday the bark Strath
ern got her anchors fouled, and it was
late in the afternoon before they could
be raised. The ferryboat seem to have
the most trouble, being unable to run
a good part of the time. Some good
sawlogs have floated down, and log
gers are keeping a sharp lookout.
