He has appointed roost of his bolp. and so far bis selections aro unexcep tionable. Some enthusiast lit a bonfire on Division Btieot last night, and displayed a ttansparoncy with the following inscription: '* Charley bounced. Le Moyne and honesty triumphant. Tbe Third District redeemed from corruption, bribery, aod ballot-box stuffing." Silver coin to tho amount of $50,000 was re ceived Yesterday by Sub-Treasurer Bangs. Ho paid oot no specie except on Treasury ebooks and orders from tbe country. Tbe latter are now so numerous that it will take tho clerical fores of tbe office all this week to fill them. Tbe Barbers’ Association held a meeting at tbe Sherman House last evening, tho President, Mr. Holtlck, presiding, and listened to reports of two committees appointed at a previous meeting to inquire into violations of the rules of the organization by some of tbo members. The Tremont House office is undergoing Us annual cleansing, wbicbooasists of washing and rocalcimining the walls and ceiling. Tbo im provement is marked. For housekeepers It might bo interesting to know that a general bonso-eloaniog was begun there abont Jan. 1. U is not yet over. A paragraph wan published yesterday to the effect that Mark Hughes, BODg-and-dooce man. bad assaulted Mibb Annie Fox. of the Adolphi company. and boon ejected from her room therefor. It appears that the poison furnishing the information had a grudge against both thr.ee psrsona, which ho sought to satisfy by securing the publication of something which was utterly destitute of truth. Iho work of canvassing for tbe petition for abolishing township organization is noaaly com pleted. Tho legal requirement is 10,COO signa tures, being a number ennal to one-fifth of tbo vole cast at the last Presidential election— £o,3oo; tbe requisite number has been obtained, but the canvassers were directed to continue their work until Wednesday. Tbo number of petitioners will be from 12,000 to 15,000. It was stated Saturday that Mary Thrichka bad been struck by Eogtns No. 37 of tbo Pan- Handle Road, at the Madison street crossing, bat escaped uninjured. It ia stated, however, by her parents that tbo young lady, who ia stud ying to be a school-teacher, waa knocked into the ditch by tbo engine, was carried home by tbs neighbors, and, according to her doctor, re ceived serious injuries of an internal nature. Ehe ia not German, aa has been stated, but an American, of Bohemian parentage. TUB LABORERS* ACADEMY. Tbe following circular has been issued by the Laborers' Academy of Chicago, established by the Ltboreis' Educational Association : This Educational Assoclatio.l was started under the general Incorporation laws of tbe State of Illinois In October, 1875, to the following persons, m.: Mips Olivia Olsen, J. C. Crooker, Dr. It. W, Piper. Mr*. Ann Duncan, W. Bodemtnn, A. Isbcrg, and Dr. E. Bert, Trustees. Tbe special purpose of tbis Association by its pro jectors, is not one to obtain pecuniary profit, but simply to furnish to tbe laboring dieses of both aexe* and all nationalities, regardless of sect, in struction, free or nearly to, in all such branches, ts will enable them to engage profitably in tbe duties and pursuits of every-day life. To the laboring classes there Is left but little time for thought or study. YU there are some hours ■very day which may be devoted to mental improve ment; and by proper guidance and systematic In struction it cannot fail that they, by tbe elevation of Ibelr faculties, must become belter citizens and more worthy representatives of tbe country than they coula by remaining In ignorance. To supply a place where those boars of leisure may be utilized, bis been sod is the object and desid eratum of tho Laborers* Educational Association. December last this Association established au Institu tion under the name ** Tbe Laborers* Academy," and from the beginning of li.fl the average number of pupils attending has been about twenty, who, highly delighted with the opportunity to improve Ihctr minds, have devoted ail tbur spare time to study, and made the most satisfactory progress. Tbe prlmsrj branches taught this winter have been the English language, in cluding reading, writing, sreliiug, grammar, also geography and arithmetic. Hence It is tbe intention of the Board of Managers to divide the school into seven! grudes, and give Its students tbe advantage of gaining a thorough knowledge, not only of the prima ry branches mentioned, but also of the history of the country, bookkeeping, singing, drawing, etc. By contribution and tuition fee there bos thus lar been collected money enough to provide the necessary famishing of one school-room; there is no fund to rely upon, thus the Institution appeal* strongly to tLo public for aid to carry out its object. Any contribu tion wtU be Uiinkfully received by tbo Treasurer, Mr. A, Isberg. at bis othce, No. 2 boutb CUrk street Tbe Academy la conducted by Mias Olsen, who has years of experience in teaching as well In this country u m Euroj e, and at her parlors, at No, 17J West ludt ana street, the school ta held every evening during tie week, elaascM < ommencing on difl erent evenings. Tui tion is free to all who are unable to pay; those who can, are expected to contribute f 1 per term of twelve weeks. Mus Ouvu Owxn, President. W. ItiDEUAHN, Secretary. A. Isbebo, Treasurer. PIOLOROPUT VINDICATED. Tbe old German philosophers claimed that tbo doer particles of blood ascending to tbe brain create a species of aura or fiame. wnicb tbe vulgar call animal spirits. Canytog their theories ntill farther, they contended toat the absence of .food etimnlates the blood, and. fol lowing their conclusions to a legitimate result, it follows that an empty stomach exalts the ner vous system and spirits of mankind, and affords incentive and activity to the brain. Tbe only known modern illustration of these theories was recently developed at the Owens boro Junction ou tbo Elizabethtown A l’a oucah Railroad. Air. William Plows, trav eler for Roelle A Junker's old house, and Capt. Jack Trigg, of Cunningham A Co., tbe Louisville whisky boose, arrived at the Junction from Owensboro, a few days ago, to find that tbef last train had cleaned out tbe hotel and left not a crust for their craving entrails. “Botry. Madame,*’ said Capt. Jack, “very sorry, but my friend is a nephew of Tom Scott, and be is laying out an air-line road from New Brunswick to tbe City of Mexico, and he pro poses to make this a dinner station. At least that was bn proposition, but, from tbe appear ance of things, I am afraid now, very much afraid." Whereat tbe landlady bustled in and out. The girls were ordered to dress op, and in half an hour a spread was laid out aucb as Bill Plows has not enjoyed since he was weaned. Capt. Jsck treated bis friend with marked deference, and before they left tbe Junction the solid men for miles around bad been summoned, and lone and windy were tbe speeches made upon that auspicious occa sion. And the Jonctionitee are waiting for (be "air Una," and Bill and Capt. Jack axe atill wonder* log wby it was that their modoitly proffered BL6O for that dinner waa never accepted, and wby they were not allowed to pay for tbe wine aolUed while they were waiting for tba Louis* Tills train. THZOiBDE.H CITY. Looking over tba books at tbe Recorder's of* flee yesterday, a Taiausa reporter found tbe following facts in regard to tbe Garden City Railway Company, wbtcb baa bceu brought prominently before ibe public of late by certain of our city fathers : Tbe charter was applied for March 8 by Henry T. Glover, Alonzo A. Row ley, and George Willard, tbe capital atock being fixed at 825,000, tbe number of ebares being 250. at 8100 each, and tbe duration of tbe Com pany is, according to tbe record, to be ninety-nine years. Tbe whole stock was sub scribed for by H. T. Glover, who is credited with 150 share*; Alooto A. Rowley, nioety-nioe ■bares: and Frank J. Loeacb, one share. On lbs 7tb March a meeting of tbosa gentlemen was held, at which they were elected Directors of the Company for one year. •• 250 totes being cast for each.** All tbe gentlemen named are lawyers by profession, nut only two of them figure in the Directory as having offices, and oos of those is a resident of Hyde Park. WHST POBS IT Mias ? Yesterday evening’s Journal publishes tbe following enigma, Isolations to he aent to tbs otyeditor's office: TUT UOTTBST TICSCT.

Tit* Tjubchb from time to time has otUod the attention of tbe publle to the fact that the Poor-House at Jefferson is furnished with poor food,—food that is not even fit for a dog to cat, lot alone a bnraah being. Saturday last Mr. Wilbur P. Storey, foreman of the Grand Jury, presented a statement of tbo manner to which county contracts wore lot, and gsva a scathing review of a man named Clom F. Periolat, who, according to the report, as a blackmailer and perjmer, guards tho door of tbo County lloaid. and influences certain mem bers by moans only known to themselves. This C. P. I*. Is a contractor ; ho furnishes the food which unfortunate panoora and tho county sick and poor have to consume. He was award ed a contract at outrageously high prices, and according to it was to furnish good and accept* able articles. How has this man kept his word? Lot tho facts given boiow show. Previous to going into details, it might be stated that a Trio* ,vnb ronortor took occasion to look in on Coun ty Agont Dioden. several months ago, and the two wont through tho food cellar. Tbo flour was uioety and tbo ooffeo was a mingling of floor scrapings, chicory to give it a flavor, and al together, apparently, a mass ot colored dust and rubbish. BUT TO TUB PBBSEHT FACTS S A gentleman named A. J. Bell, who resides at Oak Park, aod who has an office in the Bryan Block, takes occasion on many a Sumlav to visit tbe Poor-House and do whatever bo can to alleviate tho sufferings of God’s unfortunates by ministering to the wants of the aged ond crippled. At No. 208 Wabsh avenue resides a reputable physician named Dr. K. D. Dodge, who, In com pany with Mr, Hell, visited the Poor-Houeo on Sunday Inst. They wont to the bedside of an apod lady, who served three years as a Union army nut so. From excessive labor while caring for tho wounded and suffering soldiers, she was rendered a cripple, having become afflicted with varicose veins. Tho lady was at sup per and the vistor took and brought away wiih them (bo tea and bread woicb consti tuted that meal. It should bo stated that this aatno lady iout all she possessed in tbe two groat fires which scourged Chicago, and she is now poor and friendless, except that she lias an only son in tbo navy, on board tbo man-of-war Pe nobscot. THIS FOOD was taken possosalon of by the two gentlemen, the tea being ponrod into a pop-bottle. Yester day morning a Tribune reporter and a number of Presbyterian clergymen wero Invited to look at it in the rooms ot the interior in the McCor mick Block, as a aaraolo of Christian public chanty as doled out by corrupt and rotten oill cial scoundrels. There was also shown a pioco of moat served at a pauper's dinner-table. The moat waa reeking; it stunk to that extent that it waa almost unbearable. Ttio animal from which it was taken most have starved to death, for poorer or worse moat could not be found anywhere. It waa partially corned to bide the rottenness. Libby prison, in its worst days even, famished fairer food than thin. The broad waa bad, and waa so sour that it made one sick to taste it. The tea—to call it by that name seems almost an outrage noon the plant which bears the title—wob simply damnable. The odor that waa sent forth from tho bottle was sickening. Stmk woed is wholesome smelling io com parison with tbis vile decoction. And this was the food served out to patients In the sick wards. It is hardly necessary to say that the gentlemen who brought down this food were indignant. Dr, Dodge said it would bo an outrage to offer Uto a dog, let alone a member of the human family. At the time that these two gentlemen visited the institution the Warden’s table wa* supplied with lino viands. Warden Kimberly, of the Poor-Hoose, bolds bis place because he is on good terms with the King and Perl olaL A worse phase of humanity can not be pictured than that shown in the conduct of these men Kimberlv and Ponolat. The lat ter la not only charged with roboing the pnblio and levying blackmail upon contractors sod .utters, but eNrvos the unfortunates of the County Poor-House, and tbe scanty faro which ia doled oat to tnom is rotten and reeking. Yesterday Messrs. Bell and Dodge appeared at the County Building to present the matter be fore the Grand Jury, but that body bad ad journed. They will be there again to-day and ebow tbe food. And yet, after all. PerioUt may bo criminally as well as morally indicted. THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. TUB STONE QUESTION. A few minutoa hoforo the meeting of tbe County Board yesterday, a number of tbe Com miesiooera assembled in tbe committee-room. Tbs question under discussion was tbe selection of stone for tbo Court-House, and the propriety of so hedging tbe nature of tbo stone in as to permit one quarry to furnish all at such rates as tbe quarrymen and Commissioners might agree upon. It was hotly argued. Once or twloe the newspapers wore alluded to as efficient detect ives upon tbo trail of tbe modern swindle, and Uoally Commissioner Lonergan climbed to his fcfrfr and defied any pater or any eoitor in tbo city Wi point out a single action of tbo Board that had been characterized by dishonest*. It was evident that the Commissioners were all ont of sorts, for when a contractor approached Schmidt upon the subject of a little bill, that functionary warned him off with objurgations, remarking that he had become tirod and sick of contractors. The Board mot at 2 o’clock. Present, all tbo Commissioners. COirSfCNIOATIONB. Tbo Coroner sent in a communication stating that he ts short, and ashing for three months’ salary overdue. Referred to tbo Committee on finance. A communication wae received from N. 8. Bouton, Mortimer Tanpan, Amos Grannie. Car ter Brothers, and William W. Boyington, inviting the Commissioners to call at the rooms over tbe United States Express office to exam ing tbo plans for a new Court-House to cost $2,100,000. Mbs invitation was accepted, and the time for tbe visit fixed at 2 p. m. to-day. The cellmate of Farmer Harms for work to datoon the Court-House foundations, $11,677.60. was referred to the joint Committee on Public Buildings and Bervtco. A number of bills were referred to appropri ate committees. Commissioner Holden asked that tbo vote on the resolution previously passed adopting gas and gas tanks for use in public buildings, be re considered, and he hoped that tome gentleman who voted for tbe resolution would move for tbe reconsideration. He said he thought the machine dangerous, either in the use of tins gas or the location of the tank, and ha urged fur ther against the expense the patent arrange ment would entail. Commissioner Herllng moved tbe reconsider ation. Commissioner Schmidt said the machine bad always worked well, and tne insurance com panies did not ask any greater rates where it was used. Tbe resolution was reconsidered, and recom mitted to tbe Committee on Jail and Jail Ac counts, with instructions to eea if the use of the machine is against the city ordinance. A communication was received from T. C. Boyd. stating tbit the Timet bid accused him of offering to do tbe plumbing for 50 per cent Im« tb&u tbe city waa paying. He admitted writing a letter offering aometbing of tbe Lind, and said be stands ready to give bonds. His letter was written ayear ago. hut perhaps was not “0. K. with tbe Committee." Commissioner McCaffrey thought tbe letter an insult, and, on bla motion, it waa placed on file. Upon report of tbe various Committees, n number of bills were ordered paid. Tbe Committee on Printing, and Stationery and Printing, reported tbe followiog bids for printing debnquent tax*Usta : Daily Courier, each town or city lot, C cents; all (raota of laud, 12 centsj Koeninq Toil ami Mail 15 cents for each description and 8 cents for each lot, or 75 per osnt of tbe fees formerly paid. Referred to tbe County Collector. Tbe Committee ou Public Buildings and Ser vice reported ou Commissioner Basse's resolu tion, banting tbe selection of stone for tbe new Court-House to tbe Counties of Will and Guos, and recommended that all action taken hereto fore relating to tbe designation of tne atone or tbe locality from which u most bo furnished be rescinded. Tbe report was unanimously concurred in.

Tbe Coiumiaeionor wondered if Egan's testimony that he bought hie way Into the County Hoard was an indication of hie boo* estv, aod then called attention to (he fact that £gao was the architect who bntlt tbe Asylum, from which bo dodneed that the Times was oot famous for consistency. A motion was made to refer the investigation of the printing perquisites of Julian o. Rumssy and 11. D. Miller, formerly County Treasurers, to the Grand Jury, aod It was adopted.

ITS MEMBERS. A new Grand Jury was Impaneled in the Criminal Court yesterday morulug. The neg lect of the County Hoard to draw Jurors fortlio term loft the matter of selection with the Sher iff. and it is duo to him to say that ho has exer cised more than ordinary good judgment, as will appear from the composition of that body. In tbo matter of impaneling there was nothing out of the ordinary lino. Tbo usual number aakod to be excused, and a few of the requests wore granted where tbe excuses appeared satis factory to tbe Court. The list completed was as follows: L. B. Otis, 0. R. Corblo, Georus Buckley, W, 0. Mot timer, B. cdUghau, Nstbm Corwtlh, .Units tV. Bbe&han, C. B. Waller, K. T. Watkins, T. T. OvUtt, J. V. CUrk, >l.l>.

J.IU Gunns, JUDGE MOORE scanned tbe body cloaelv after it had been se lected, and appointed Judge L. B. Otis as fore man. He then proceeded to charge the jurors as to their duties. The law, ho said, undertook to protect every citizen, and it was every citi zen’s duty to uphold tbo law. Ho cautioned tbo jury to carefully inquire Into every matter Drought before it, to the end that tuo malice uf individuals should have no weight in thoir deliberations. They should only indict whoro there was a probable chance to convict, and should not depend for conviction upon auv ad ditional evidence that might bo brought out on trial, tor such a course weakened the influence of tbo Court, Toe Court then spoke with groat earnestness of the necessity of the jury keeping Us proceedings from the outside world. It was the law that tbo secrets of tbo jury-room should be kept sacred, and here bo referred to tbe fact that tbo proceedings of tbo last jury bad boon published in Tub Tbicdne every day. No one should know, bo said, what transpired m their secret chamber, which was not only tbs law. but a doty owed to tbe witness as well as tbe parties teslitled against. Ho bod road tbe rei>ort of tbe last jury, and uuder the circumstances felt that it was proper that the work of in vestigating alleged frauds in the management of county affaire should bo continued. to the cod that if there bad been any public thievery the tnteves might be punished. He next called attention to tbe late Jail escape, sod said that, too, was a proper subject for in quiry. If some one was to blame, it should be kuowo. In concliHloD, tbe Court spoke of tbe peculiar statutes of (be Btate which excused persons from punishment by their turning Htate’s evidence, having bis mind, doubtless, on tbe re cent investigations which bad beer* retarded be cause witucases would not commit themselves, tod could not testify without doing it. If the Grand Jury found each men,tbe discovery should be made known, that they migbt be excused from prosecution, and protected in giving their evidence. At tbe conclusion of tbe charge tbe jury wended its way to tbe eky-parlor. but did noth* log during tbu day beyond organizing. THE MORAL INDICTMENT. WDAT TUB COMKIBSIONBUa TUINIX. The member* of the County Board were atill ins feverish condition yesterday, growing out of tbe recent report of the Grand Jury reject ing upon them. In tbe forenoon each as were around were reasoning and curbing among themselves as to wbat course to pursue. They felt that they bad been much abused, but uot one of them could see the way out of tbe trouble. At one moment they were consulting tbe County Attorney, whose ••opinions" have been so nu merous of late as to call their value into ques tion, and at soother they wore insulting and repelling tbe most cautious contractor in bis inquiries for tboir health. In the afternoon, and Ju«( In advance of tbe hour for tbe meeting of tbe Board, tbe »c«ne was inteusifled. Wbeio there had been one to greet a visitor with an angry scowl, there were a dozen, and the spirit of in* dtguatiou was general. The condition was mu unusual as to excite attention and cause among tbe old lobbyists MIST rBUTINXNT QDBSICS. "Wbat causes all this auger?" said ouo, tod tbe reply was, ••the Grand Jury has called these ItUows thieves“ls that ail ?" put in a third, with s smile which signified that be bad baen of tba same opinion for some time. Tbs bustle drowned tbs answer, and the tap of the Chair- man's gavel seated the Commlsilonars and eod od tbolr conversation. After the adjournment of tbe Board another scene followed, but far lessexoltiog. While the Board had been grinding money out of Ibe pub* Ho treasury, their over-faithful attorney bad been fixing up some consolation for them la the shape of AFFIDAVITS from persons more or less connected with (be report of tho late Grand Jury. Tho affidavit of ono Wilkinson was ono of the lot, in which bo had been made to go on and say that bo had never named certain Commissioner* who could bo bonght for 6100 apieoe to carry out a certain job, eto. The missing link in tbo document— It wss doubtless an oversight^was its failure to say anything about Wilkinson’s receiving a certified check for 6600. with the understanding that bo was to use it with the Board, and the further failure to say anything about McCaffrey's knowledge of the chock, ami of McCaffrey and Wilkinson subsequently forcing tho man who had given the check into a vault and demanding of him that ho should make certain retractions. Notwithstanding those omissions, tbe several members of tho Board appeared delighted at tbo work Bonntrce had accomplished, and tho re- E oners, too. felt Jovlul, for tho clerk *to tho card Committees had found onongb time to make copies of tho affidavits for all tho papers lu tho oitv. Another of the affidavits was by a man named Handley, who came before tho public some months ago in answer to au Indictment in the Criminal Court charging him with tampering with tho ballot-boxes of bis ward. Ho was made to denv a part of what the Grand Jury had re ported. and Bountroo erred lb not making him deny It all. Ho could have done it with equal facility. OTUCn AFFIDAVITS of a similar nature wore In course of prepara tion at a late hour In tbo afternoon. They will all roaou tbo public gaze in due time, doubtless, and after all the threatening oaths and bullying on the pari of certain members, tbe whole thing promises to end in this way. Ibo •* Bing " have about concluded that to procure affidavits is tbo cheapest defense that can bo mado. The draw ing of the documents will cost tho Bing men nothing, inasmuch as the county pays an attor ney to do their bidding, whether le be for or against tbo public interest, and tho; imagine that the press will bo only too glad to publish them as a matter of nows. THE FRUITS OF ADVERTISING) OS, TUB DOCBIEB CONVINCED} 0 DIUIIA IN FITS " Pshaw 1" said the old man testily, as ho imote sharply on tho aidewaik with bis gold headed stick, M suppose there Is sixty-nine col umns of advertising in Tub Thidunb and 2,035 advortlsmonts. What does it prove ? Why, Just that there is 2,085 fools in tbo city; that's all, No ono ovor roads tbo advertisements. J never do, except the * personals.’ ” “But,” said his interlocutor, timidly, 11 tbo advertisements ate road." “Pooh I nonsense, stuff and nonsense! " re torted tbo old man ; “ why, I'd put half a col umn m Tub Tbiuone and nobndy’d ovor answer the notice.

There wore from live to fifteen oa each car. and tho streets wore black with them. . . . The old man who thought there was nothing In advertising was at breakfast, with tho wife of his bosom, when there came a tremendous tug at tho door-boll. Presently tbo servant girl en tered and said: "There's a lady up-stairs wanto to see you, sir." “ Didn't she give her name ?" Inquired tbo old man's wife, who has nn aquiline uoso, ovor which tbo skiu is tightly drawn, aud weats nor hair in ringlets an big—or as small— as slate-pencils. "No. m'm," replied tbo servant. "Whatis she like?" questioned tbo woman, with a sharp look over her spectacles. "A young woman, m'm, dressed in black, with red hair." "O, ono of tbo Sunday-School teach ers, I a'poso," said tho old man, carelessly. "O, I s'poEO so," replied his helpmeet, with a sniff. Tbo belt rang again. . . . The old mao in terviewed ono widow in tbo front parlor; there woro four more iu the back parlor, two in tho hall, and seven roosting on tho sloes, while down tbo street, oa fur as tho oyo, aided by tho most powerful spectacles, could roach, mote . young American widows could be soon. Whar tho vultures is, thar will tho carc&ncs bo gathered together," said tho old man. Then bo added, reflective ly, "What'n Jerusalem ray happy homo does all this mean ?" bo saying, ho stopped into tho bock parlor, whoa his oars woro saluted ;wllU a volley of cries as four young American widows pressed towards him : "I was hero llrtt,” "Hhe pushed mo down the front stops just as I whs going to ring the boll." “Her name’s Jemima Stubbs, though she calls herself Kllso Auna&olla Do Courcy." "Look whore tho bran's leaked out of her calves." "Shopaints." "Tbem’a Cads." •• That’s & sweet widow; her husband's carding with Felton for2o3dava." Thou tho four widows pitched in for a free tight, during which, while tbo air was thick with false tooth, crimps, hair-pins, slander, palpitators. bustles, bran, jute switches, and things, tho old man escaped, saving to his wife that it was all a horrid Uroam. "O. yes, a homd dream si’ll horrid droam them,” said the old man’s wife. iv. Presently a young American widow called, hat tho masior was not at homo, and tbo servant showed her into the presence of too master's wife. Tbo master’s wife was at flrsfe inclined to repel her oa an intruder, but when the young American widow showed her an extract from Tub Sunday Tuiounb sbo changed the currout of her wralb. "The old bald-headed reprobate," sbo remarked; " he’s * wealthy,' is ho ? 1 Middle aged?' Tbo bald-headed old coot 'll never seo 70 again; time he was thinking on worms, sud sextons, and golden harps, anil things. * Childless,’ eh ? With thirteen children alive and nine laid under the sods of tho valley. I’ll childless him. 'Widower,' ob? That’s what he wants, is it ? I’ll bo a lively widow. * Young American widow,' oh .*" Here there was another ring at tho boll, and. seizing a fire ebovol, the devoted wife sallied forth into the midst of a raging sea of young American widows, and laid them out right and loft. "I'll young American widow ’om,” said she reflectively, as aho returned. "O, the ecoundrel!" The old raio spent a very unpleasant day at bis office (Including a reataurant diouor), and about 10:15 returned home cautiously. "Who would have thought," bo said, thoughtful!/, “ that the old advertisement bad so much life In it ? " Quietly ho mole up'tho front steps, noiselessly he opened the door, when a white gowned figure appeared, and a broomstick do* eceuded on bis baldest spot, while a shrill femi nine voice was hoard : •• X 9011, how's that for a midie-sged widower ? 0, ain't 1 a nice dead widow ?
