O. SOVEY, fe5ua taLi5a'4i a 62331 TUTS & BE Varieties. Dinner-might Strong butter. Young lovers don't mind addition, but they daspise the rule of three. ''Information -wanted by the editor of this paper," is a suggestive head ing of an advertisement in an Arkan sas exchange. A Boston clergyman is lecturing on "A Business Man's Conscience." For obvious reasons no ''horrible ex ample" accompanies the lecture. It may safely be set down that every republican who holds an office worth more than $12 per annum, is an "offensive partisan." Boston papers make rather light of the dynamite explosions. Sullivan's sprees have made the Ilub regardless of slight disturbances. The latest wrinkle according to fashion's authorities is a smooth face for men. The hard, glossj' cheek of the newspaper reporter is beginning to be appreciated. A debutante is reported to have signalized her advent in New York societv bv calling men bv their first names immediately upon being in troduced. These arc indeed "hard times." Obituary of a Chicago editer: "Ho rose gradually from an obscure posi tion until he could mark off more credits in a day than any other man in the office, which rare ability won for him deserved distinction." 'It goes against my constitution," said Air. Closepenny to his wife, "for you to spend so much money." "Aw you constitution be hanged," replied Mrs. (J , "it's my buy laws 1 don't want you to interfere with." "Did you enjoy the party, Emma?" Ever so much, mamma." "I Iiodq you were a good little girl and lis tened to what was said to you?" "I did, mamma, I listened all the even ing to one person talk." "Who was talking?" "1 was." Prince Henry of Battenberg will be made a Knight of the Garter on the day he is married to Princess Beatrice. A ridiculous title, indeed. Henry would doubtless rather be known as a Knight of the Patent Suspender. Proprietor of German restaurant to new waiter: "Dot letter for j'ou, eh? You was der Baron von Schinkel berg?" New waiter "(meekly) "Yes, Mein Herr." Proprieter: "Den you wasn't no reckular waiter, eh ? Veil, I dake a dollar a veek off your wages." An Aiizona editor having got his rival in jail for a3Bault and batten', thus gloats oyer him : "Our quondam contemporary is lying as usual this time in jail. We understand that the saloon keepers are movinc heaven and earth to get him out,asflieir busi ness has fallen off since he has been cooped. When he gets out what a thirst he will have !" Bobby begged his mamma to buy him a drum. 'I am afraid, Bobby," she replied, "that if I were to buy a drum grandpa might not like it very much. "Tliat wouldn't make any difference, mamma," Bobby argued, "cos, you see, the drum ain't for grandpa; it's for me." This conver sation occurred a good many years ago, and Bobb', who is now :i man, is practicing law successfully in Phil adelphia. Poor young artist (displaying a pic ture) "That is an exact copy, Madame, of Raphael's "Madonna," which you will remember sold for $123,000." Madame " And how much do you ask for this picture?" Poor Young Artist "Two dollars and a quarter." "What is the cause of such a wide difference in price?" Poor young artist " Competition, Madame. The business is not what it used to be." j use listen to this, Martha v ex claimed Mr. Jarphly, who was read ing his evening paper. "One of the dogs in the London prize show is valued at $50,000! Good gracious! That's more money than 1 ever ex pect to be worth in my life. "Some dogs are worth more than others, Jeremiah," quietly remarked Mrs. Jarphly, and Mr. "Jarphly eyed her for a moment and said she need not sit up for him that evening. "Rejoice with me, my beloved wife," he cried as he entered the house, "rejoice with me ; I have se cured the position!" "What, as cashier of the Ninety-ninth National bank?" "Yes, my love. I enter upon my duties to-morrow morning." "How nice 1" she exclaimed, as she kissed him. "I will start to-morrow morning." "Start! Start where?" he cried in amazement. "For Mon treal, of course. I mean to look out for a nice house. I'm not going to stay in any hotel when we go there." "We want a broken pillar of white flowers. Somethin' pure and. con solin',,' remarked a customer to the florist. "How would this white dove suit you 1" "First rate. Give us a couple. Perch 'em on the coffin and ?oint their bills up, religious like. rou know how." "It must be ter rible to lose an innocent child," re marked the florist sympathetically. "Who's lost a child?" replied the customer savagely. "If Bill Scrap heard you call him an innocent child he'd smash your eye. Bill wasn't innocent enough to hurt him any,and don't you forgit it." Colonel Yerger meeting the Rev. Whangdoodle on Austin avenue, asked him: "How is your congrega tion coming on?" "We are going right ahead, salt. Since we has quit passing de hat we has taken in lots ob money. De Jjerlecslmns b.3?.ih- creased wonderfully, sah, wonder i fully." "I can't understand how ou i can" take up collections if you don't pass the hat." We pass de plate now." Weil, that's the same tning as passing the hat, isn't it?" "No, sah ; hit ain't de saine thing. Deacon Webster passed de hat for jinoah den a year and de kerlecshuns was mighty small; but now I passes de plate myself and de money just rolls in. De plate am much more reliable den de hat." "How is thot?" "Deacon Webster put tar in de top ob his hat." Fashion and Common Sonso If there is one locality more than another where the voice of common sense is never listened to it is in that very extensive one where fashion reigns. Who over thinks of listening to the suggestions of the former, when the decree of the latter potentate has gone forth? Tight sleeves for the ladies, and tight continuations for the gentlemen is the fashion, supposing. Tlie advocates of common sense pro test, saying, it is impossible to move one's limbs in them ; I cannot bend the knee before the portrait of my fondest hopes, says one; I cannot get my hands to the back of my head, says another, which is far more im portant. And fashion replies, I can not satisfy all tastes. My laws are mostly made for the unreflecting; if you reflect 3ou will never be satisfied. That which yon complain of now is only a temporary inconvenience; when I can no longer tighten in your limbs, sleeves and leggings will take such ample proportions that the real size of an arm or a leg will be a sub ject for divination. Fashion has no respect of person ; if high heels are introduced for the benefit of short people, low heels are never intro duced at the same time for people who are already taller than they care to be. The latter must wait their turn for the opposite fashion, and then unusually short persons must havo their boots made to order if the' wish to reach up to the elbow of their superior in height, or Bubmit to be looked upon as dwarf by tall people, if they prefer to keep in the fashion. Fashion pretends to have an eye for beaut j' ; if this be true, she enacts at least that all her followers be modelled after the same fashion. They must hae heads and faces of a uniform size and shape, that the hat or bonnet of the season may become them all, and they must have a uni form tint of complexion, that the color a la.mode may suit "it. Those who study fashion in dres3 at the ex pense of their personal comfort are surely wanting in common sense, yet we most of us do so, and it seems as though we like doing so, since the fashionable and uncomfortable article is preferred to the unfashionable and comfortable one, though it may cost more than double the price of the latter. Common sense suggests that in hot weather clothing for both sexes should be light in texture -and color; but if fashion ordains that ladies' dresses be heavily trimmed, and if she refuses to give her consent to gar ments of a summon nature being in troduced for gentlemen, no one has the courage to pay attention to per sonal comfort. When ladies' skirts are made so narrow as to be incon venient for walking, and liable to as sist the wearer to an awkward fall in descending from a carriage, or when they are widened to a ludicrous width to admit of unmanageable crinolines, or burdened with useless trains, to be draggled in the streets or trodden on in the ball-room, who ever thinks of refusing to obey the nonsensical mandate? Even the most obdurate end by giving in, believing that they are more ridiculous to hold out than to stand alone with common sense. Nothing, for instance, could indicate more plainly the folly of making long trained dresses the fashion, than to see a year or two ago how tho latter was necessarily bunched up in the most ungraceful manner, or the wearer was compelled to have one hand always engaged with holding up the superfluous yard or two of stuff, making her invariably wish that artificial hands had come into fashion with the trains, to allow of her using her natural ones in some more profitable way. Here, There. Everyuherr, Malaria is found. Even where the disease is not prevalent here tlie general condition of tlie surrounding locality may dc favorable to health, i-o!ated cases may eist. Bad drainage, a damp cllar, the escape of sewer gas, tiie e.itance of masked cess pools, prox imity to stagnant water all these are frc qtunt muses, and what town or city of any magnitude is free from them. Hostctter.s Stomach Hitters, whether in town or country whether the germs of the disease develops either the bilious remittent or tlie intermit tent fom, or that mgativc. sluggish, lint not less obstinate type called dumb ague, is equally efficient, botli as a preventltive and a remedy. Bad digestion, biliousness, con stipation, a want of vitality, arc also reme died by It, and the happiest results may be surely anticipated from its use. for tlie re lief of rheumatism, kidney and bladdercom iilalnts, and nervousness, accompanied by a lack of appetite and sound repose. It is botanic ami agreeable. One day last week we accompanied a friend to supper at the Barnes House, and, when about to enter the dining-room, the old handle who pre sides over that hostelry, objected to our eating, and we forgot our religion and smote him on the cheek, which resulted in a case before justice Mc Murry, entitled the State of Texas vs. Deed H. Meyer. Jury trial, and fined $1 and costs. Instantaneous nhotocranhv is one of the discoveries of the age. So is that instantaneous pain cure, at Jacobs Oil, A Man of Titles. I heard a funny story the other day about a young nobleman, a member of Diplomatic" Corps at Washington. It seems that the young man had a military title of considerable length, beside " having another title, and when he got all his titles engraved on his visiting cards, the bits of paste board were well covered and looked most imposing. The cards greatly impressed all the Washington girls, and the young foreigner became a great favorite. One of his friends, however, in a joking mood one day, told him that he must add the word "bachelor" to his card, as that was the custom here. So the poor fellow had "bachelor" engraved with the rest of his titles. Paris generally leads in the fash ions, but Niagara cannot be equalled for fall st3'le. Belter than She L'sptctei!.
