Courbet’s pictures are excluded from tha Vienna Exhibition because he is a Com munist, but some Vienna students are about to repair that wrong by providing a private place for their exhibition. A memorial window, commemorative of Sir John Franklin, has been placed in a church in London, of which Sir John was one of the founders, and which is attended chiefly by sailors. A young lady at Troy, while engaged in a conversation with a gentleman, spoke of hav ing resided in St. Louis. “Was St. Louis your native place?” Well, yes, part of the time,” answered the lady. ' A Chicago personal—“A brick fell from a scaffold on Dearborn street yesterday, and crushed through a bridge underneath. What Jim Stevens has the doctor for this morning is because it was the bridge of his nose.” Another “unknown man"’ while walking on the track of the Hudson River Railroad, baa been run over and killed. We have sug gested once, in the interest of humanity, that all strangers approachiug that road should be required to produce tetters of introduction to the officers of trains, or keep off the track, and we hope we shall not be forced to do it again.—Louisville Courier-Journal. A Southern paper has these among its per sonals: “St. Paul is away out West with Minne sota; St. John will spend the summer in New Brunswick; Elmira is in New Tork; Elizabeth is in New Jersey; Marietta is iu Ohio; Charlotte is in North Carolina; an 1 Augusta is down here in Georgia. They don’t intend visiting each other this season. Sothern, the actor, doesn’t like to have his dog form new acquaintances, so he fastens two very sharp needles to his nose, leaving the ends projecting about an inch. When a strange dog rushes up to “shake noses” with him, he gets a thrust that sends him off howl ing, and the effect is such that Sothem’s dog can’t get within gun-shot of any other that knows how the thing works. A number of admirers of Mario at St. Pe tersburg have formed a fund, the interest of which is to be devoted to a Mario scholarship for young tenors at the Conservatoire de Mu sique, and Mario, being touched by this com pliment, has presented to the founders two original full-size paintings, one of himself as Don Juan, the other of Julia Grisi as Donna Anna. Not long since at a Sunday School not a thousand miles from here, the teacher, alter trying hard to impress on the minds o( a class of small boys tbe sin of Sabbath-breaking, asked: “Is Sunday any better than any oth er day?’’ When the smallest boy in (the class answered promptly: “You bet your boots it is.” The answer seemed satisfac tory. A well-known English divine, opposed to reform in spelling as in everything else, once declared that the fearful orthography of En glish formed the best psychological founda tion of English orthodoxy, because a child that had once been brought to believe that t-h-r-o-u-g-h sounded like “through,” t-h-o-u-g-h like “though,” r-o-u-g-h like “rough, would afterward believe anything. The Fitchburg (Mass.) Sentinel, an excel lent paper, is going to start a daily. We are glad of it. We started a daily once. We ran it nearly four months and then paused. Since then we take lively interest in such en terprises. Ws5 have no doubt the Sentinel people will make the daily work, and we are quite positive it will make them work. A man who goes through life without having started a daily paper misses a rare and valua ble experience. Falling down stairs with a cook-stove will hardly compensate him.—Dan bury News. A few days ago the Newport News was ex ultant over a cat, in to at city, that daily washes its face in a basin. Its exchanges took up the item and added such improve ments that the editor is wrathful at the stu pidity that hindered him from seeing his chance to tell a good story, and says that he soon expects to read that the cat wipes irs face on a towel, puts on Lubin’s powder with a puff, and cleans its claws with a nail brush. Automatic lawn-mowers are the latest thing out. They cost about $120, and one will operate through a whole neighborhood. You have only to leave a gate open over night, and you will find the grass cut in patches here and there next morning. The oii?v drawback is that it is jnst as likely to LAe the top off a favorite plant as anything elee, and will hoof hole a garden bed till it looks as if it was afflicted with magnified small-pox. But it may also be said in its fa vor that it gives a couple of quarts of milk for a few days, and will scare the life out of every squalling baby in the vicinity, besides hooking dogs and small boys. Level-Headed Lovers.—A singular marriage was recently made by a fascinating lady school-teacher in a Kentucky country town. First she rejected him, but he behav ed with so much dignity under the mortifica lion of her refusal, neither getting drunk nor hating her, and he manifested so many signs of earnest affection, that she relented and wrote him a note informing him that she had reconsidered. The young man, all aglow with happiness, hastened to her side, and in sisted on immediate marriage. But here an unlooked-for obstacle intervened. Her school term was but half out, and the stone-hearted directors refused to cancel her engagement except at the expense of forfeiture of the half term. Lover was importunate. Finally the lady eonsented to compromise. She bounced ] into th^ young man’s buggy and was driven to Danville, where the knot was hastily tied. Then she went bo«k to her school and the groom went about his business, with the un derstanding that he was not to see her or “pester” her in any way until next July* when her term will be finished. Modes for Masculines. SPRING FASHIONS FOB GENTLEMEN IN NEW YORK. From tho Now York Commercial. The reclierclie toilet for mon elegant to wear promenading consists of a handsome °'lt'.rCi°?t’ made of Scotch mohair cloth, “a3 pretty ribbed stripes of the same breast’. 1 'e £?’lar ant* cutis are plain, tingle n.v, . , c overcoat comes in dark and aRywTr^’ ’ tllc ,atter 13 the most gener iteTsiVcialw^ih-tbn041 uSvUquite alavor the wrinkled rlUu who bave filided into younger brothers. The* with,th,° French diagonal cloth, eube/ul - uaed U dark navy blue. These shad.. c,: or vor7 ingly convenient, as they hannordze S' most any kind of light-tinted pants th * The vest is made of the same material as the coat. Light vests are not fashionable but will be very much worn during the sum mer season. Light pantaloons are the mode for the Promenade, and also for evening wear. 'here is no particular leading tint; the range in shades is very liberal; perhaps the most delicate and refined hues are those of pale gray, misty lavender and shadowy Lon don smoke. These colors are not “loud”, and are so subdued in tone that they cannot fail to please the most artistic taste. The fashionable collars are confined to two styles —the short standing and the medium wide turn-down; the former has the comets slightly bent, while the latter has rather long and sharp points, wide apart, leaving ample room for the scarf or tie, both of which are f.shionable. The first style hails from Lon don, and is worn carelessly around the neck, crossed near the throat, and held in place by a fancy ring. These rings come in a variety of styles ; the mest popular design is the oxy dize of silver, quite a unique and rustic orna ment. The tic is tbe Frenchman's own little toi let “fixing,” and the charming bow is univer sally liked by old and young Messieurs. The shirt bosom should be made very plain to be called fashionable. White and light-tinted silk pocket-handker chiefs “are all the rage.” Business suits for the wealthy Messieurs are quite different in style from those worn by the really working men. Mr. Millionaire and brokers, ton merchants, publishers and professionals can wear suits made of fine mix tures ; those shot with gold and red are the most recherche. The coat is cut double breasted, skirt of medium length, square fronts and side pockets. The pants of the same material, made Bomewbat fuller from the knee to the instep than those of last sea son. Ihevesfcis also made of same material. The gray mixtures are not so fashionable, except for trave'ing. Fashion has decided that her noble ions need not appear in a full black suit at parties and other festive occasions; but black is the mode style for weddings and funerals. The “steel-pen coat” is the vogue. Pants, close-fitting over the hips, gradually growing more easy until they finish with a handsome spring over the instep. Gaiters, not boots, faro the mode; square toes, calf-mate finish tops, with cat-skin fox ings. The wide strap is a very handsome low shoe, and will be very much worn at our summer resorts. The Congress shoe is still a favorite. The hunting shoe is made exactly like the above, only having the eolea much wider than the uppers, which gives eaae and comfort to the feet while on a Tong ramble. Gaiter tops, will be extensively worn this summer. These “tops” prevent the light pants from being soiled with the blaci.ing on the shoes. nilCELLANEOia aoxicbi.
