An Indiana man has invented a ‘‘spark ar rester.” It is presumed he has a f?.m 'y ot daughters. The jude of a Kentucky court has decided that a newspaper reporter has a right, under the statute, to carry arms at all times. Fort Scott, Kansas, is to have a eastor-oil factory, and already the corners of youthful mouth3 are drooping. Girls under ten years of age are not re quired to work more than fifteen hours and a half per diem in the mills of Lawrence, Mass* The Ohio Legislature adjourned last Tues day to go to a circus, not having a ring of their own convenient. It will take four entire evenings to produce Waguer’s new opera, ‘‘The Ki g of the Kibc luugen,” which is to appear next year. Scotlsborough Ala., encourages pedestrian Ism by ordaining that no liar shall be set up within live miles of its corporate limits. The murderous Modocs should be extermi Iuatcd in the lava beds, and remembered here after only as the extinct craters. The suicidal modification of Indiana’s di vorce laws is reported to have already neatly doubled the nominal population of Connecti cut.

When asked what her qualifications were, she answered that she had had consid erable experience in soliciting contributions from tradesmen for fancy fairs. She was en gaged. Mr. Somers, of Newbern, having read that we are going to have a spell of frightful warm Summers, concluded he would rather face the ills he knew not of, than go through another blistering season like the last sum mer was. Mr. Somers, ere thus, lias doubt less discovered thi truth of that aphorism a-ont jumping from the fiyiug pan into the fire. The bridge disaster at Dixcn, says the De troit Post, promise? a career and sphere of usefulness for the elephant beyond the wild est dreams ot [his vagrant and indolent an cestors. The “safety” instinct of this animal is notorious;and by careful breeding on the principle ol natural selection, herds of them might be trained into beasts wish infallible judgment upon architecture of all descrip tions, and employed as “sediles,” as the Ro man building inspectors were called. A Rochester man got into trouble the oth er day, by being an Odd Fellow. He met a Mrs. Scott in a butcher’s shop, and mistaking some motion she made for a sign used in the order of Reliecca, a woman’s degree in Odd went to her, and offered his as sistance ifslio needed it.
