Wba'. did the spider do when he came out eaik. He took a fly and went home. A Utica paper declines to publish a little ryanSah0&tW‘hfea-J«« A fossil ham, discovered i„ the pleUtocen. deposits of California, is adduced to prove the existence of pre-Adamite boarding houses. M'lle Schneider is no longerquesn of Opera bouffe, in Paris. She has been displaced by Nidue Judic, who has set naughty Paris wild with enthusiasm. It is Mr. Cariye who remarks that men who can have communion in nothing else can still commune at dinner and still “rise into some glow of brotherhood over food and wine.” “What time is it, my dear?” asked a wife of her husband, whom she suspected of be ing drunk, but who was doing his best to look sober. “Well, my darling, I can’t tell; ’cause you see, there are two hands on my watch, and each points to a different figure, and I don’t know which to believe.” A commendably neat Massachusetts man having occasion to cut his throat last week, considerately went out on the back piazza with a pail, over which he held his head dur ing the operation, in order to avoid making a muss. A young lady ot this city wa3 recently struck with the uselessness of her life, and immediately went to work to learn plain sewing. At latest dates she had hemmed one side of a towel, which the proud parents have framed and hung in a conspicuous posi tion.—New York Mall. The student e litors of a small Western col lege having printed some remarks in ridicule of a woman lecturer, have been sued by her for $20,000, which sum, remarks the Detroit Tribune, “is an easy thiag to get out cf al mpst any college paper.” The story is told, illustrative of the effects of Concord atmosphere,that a little chap who lived next door to Emerson was engaged one day in digging a hole by the roadside. A worldly trifler, passing by, asked him, “What are you digging after, little boy?’, With gravity he answered, “After the Infinite.” A Pittsburg firm claims to have discovered a process by which it can make the famous Russia sheet iron. The latter is made in Si beria by a secret process which no other na tion has hitherto been able to obtain. The British government has offered £50,000 for its discovery, but even the stimulus of that large sum has failed to achieve the result. The Vindicator, published at Boggy depot, Choctaw Nation, contains the following start* ling and thrilling paragraph: “Nahullo miko iivppr vtti ehatuk vt ilikohchi na inia hosh vihtoba tok. Yhomi tuk osh miko himonr Albert Parsons vt ant falamvt ia kyt nitak chekosi falamvt via chi hosh ia tok o himonasi ka miko vt ikshoshke.” We ars very sorry that Albert Parsons should have been mixed up in this affair, but people who will do sush things must suffer the consequences. There is nothing so true, so sincere, so downright and forthright as genius. It is always truer than the man himselt is, greater than he. If Shakespeare the man bau been as marvelous a creature as the genius that wrote the plays, that genius i o comprehen sive )u its iu’elligence, so wise even in Us play, that its clowns are moralists and philos phers, so penetrative that a single one of its phrases reveals to us the secret of our own character, would his contemporaries have left us so wholly without reco/d of him as they have done, distinguishing him in no wise from his fellow-players?—James Russell Low ell. An eminent London oculist w s recently requested to operate upon two grizzly bears at the Zoological Gardens, for cataract Chloroform was administered, and the oper ations wero successful, but unluckily one of the patients recovered from the anaesthesia too quickly, and considerably mauled his keeper. Some time after ward the tame oc ulist was asked to operate on one of the tigers, but he respectfully declined the proposal, saying that he must draw the line some where and he drew it at a grizzly bear. The London Calcraft is about to suspend his profession instead of criminals, and pass the rest of bis life in seclusion, sweetened by the cultivation of roses, dahlias and tulips. When he hanged Mrs. Cotton, at Durham, he remarked she was the last on which he should “put a night cap,” though he would like to have ended his official life with apply ing his “noble art” to a newspaper reporter. His successor is to be Robert Pickard Evans a well-to-do Welsh farmer, who, out of the pure love for the “art” of banging, has as sisted Calcraft for fourteen years. The Poet Tesntsox at Home.—A gen tleman who recently had the pleasure of meeting Tennyson, at his own home, in com pany with a few bright people and hearing him read, describes his manner and style of talking as quiet and gentlemanly, with a slight dash of what looks like indolence, and, especially at first, a stiffness and reserve that repel strangers. His eyes have a dreamy ex pression, and his face, when seen c'osely, is full of lines that suggest by-gone sorrow and care. His elocution was somewhat labored, and he seemed not. to try to throw any varie ty into the reading by marked change of ac cent. It was, in short, a little monotonous, and perhaps over refined. But he threw a good deal ol subdued expression into his tones, aDd his voice was low and “musical ss Apollo’s lute.’’ Du/ ing the conversation the name of Emerson was introduced, at which he exclamcd, “Emerson! my favorite author. I can hardly tell you how much I owe that most brilliant of writers!” Hawthorne and Longfellow were also the subjects of his ad miration. To “Cotton To/7 The origin of the popular expression “to cotton to” is rather a peculiar and interest ing one. On the first institution of an J£m bassy to China* in 1703, from the Court of St. James, it was required of the Anibassa^or that he should approach His Imperial Majes ty of China on his hands and knees,more like an oriental slave than a Minister Plenipoten tiary of Great Britain. This homage is called the Kotow, and he* always been deemed too humiliating to be ac ceded to by any foreign minister either from England or the United S'ates; and conse quently they have always been refused the right of audience. To Kotow or not to Ko tow has been the grand cause of our trouble wilh China for the last eighty years. In Eng land the expression became a housahcld won! lor shameful humiliation, and in this country the transition was easy from “to Kotow to ’ to “to cotton to,” especially as cotton was considered King there about the time the expression came to us.
