A MATRIMONIAL LOTTERY. J TnnitRjjis an alleged literary tveel jt.abliehefl in Massachusetts wbi My which for one of its objects the promo h of platonic friendships between nan. 4e of alleged literary tastes and, of &nrse. of different sexes. For one COrr ispondence' that is productive ot(SQ A results, it is safe to say that ttiere are three which end in harm, and not always do the "young ladies who Ac corresppndents" who affect tSrorks of Tupper or Holland come out as luckily as the three "Heroines of a recent adventure. They .had advertised after the usual fash ion a? d had been mace happy with letter in the most approved Claude Meln' tte vein from a romantic young man i 1 an adjacent territory. In due ime friendship ripened to love and wclL a few days ago each of the three ladies leceived the following letter: " "Your letter to M. C. W , r, has been received here and. according to custom, opened by me. violently assuming that you are a lady, though an unsophisticated one, I write to inform von that W was until (he past few days a private in he -rnril army stationed here.

RID.VY, Foa the past two months an effort has been made to bring about a rec onciliation between Blaine and Grant and Conkling, looking to, the next presidential campaign.. An 'inkling of this has 'already reachedthe pub lic, but as between Blaine and Grant the statements have been premature. "What was most desired, but was still unaccomplished, was stated as an al ready existing fact This reconcilia tion has been sought in the interests of ex-Senator Chaffee, of Colorado, who is known to be the leader of the Blaine forces in that section, and whose daughter is married to G,en. Grant's son. The original scheme con templated the nomination of Blnine for the presidency, with the induce mentof secretary of state held out to Grant, and "the senate to be hand ed back to Mr. Conkling. It was thought that under this scheme, if it could be carried out, the Republican party would enter upon the next cam paign with a spirit of unbounded en thusiosm. it is now certain that a reconciliation letween Blaine and Grant lias been. effected.. Tnus gently doth theN. Y. Journal let Yillard drop: It may be interesting and possibly consoling to those who have suffered by the wholesale depreciation of the Yillard stocks to know that Mr. Yillard himself ap pears to feel bereaved. While no profession of disappointment on his part can offset the losses of his as sociates and following, proof that he has suffered with them because of his enthusiasm, and that they are not the victims of duplicity, would serve to mitigate the prevailing feeling regard ing Mr. Yillard and his enterprises. The insanity plea was successfully interposed in a horse-stealing case at Los Angeles, CaL, whereupon the San Francisco Post observes: "Any man who would steal a Los Angeles 'bronco,' knowing that it is a greater crime in that country to steal a 6 plug than to lall a houseful of China men for the fun of seeing them kick must necessarily be insane." Tire first United States land olhce was opened at Ckillicothe, 0., in 1800. It was one of four ordered by con gress to be located at Marietta, Cin cinnati, Chillicothe and Steubenville, respectively. Land had formerly been sold in tracts of 1,000 and 2,000 acres. Finally it was possible to pnr chase small tracts of land at $2 an acre on five years' credit. A max in Duluth, Minn., has been fined $li for kissing a pretty girl" against her will. If a maiden is eo handsome that a man cannot resist tho temptation to kiss her. she should consider the buss a tribute to her beauty -provided thec'SLhIuior iiiLi- self is psrsonally attractive. Tjie Chattanooga Times thinks the newspapers are principally to blame for the notoriety attained by the weather prophets and almanac makers. But who is io blame for the newspapers? A Baitimobb astronomer Bays the indications are that tho.nevr comet has been around the sun, and not liking the sun's looks is going off into space like a dissatisfied tom-cat. A young woman in Illinois, crazed by religion, imagines herself an angel. It is usually crazed young men -who imagine young women to bo angels.
