Stockings with red spots ate to be worn with lOtv shoes this summer, so that mosquito bites wen’t show. Call Providence a “slow” city, indeed I Why, an active man was run over by a funer al there last Friday. Salisbury, Conn-, had added ever so many ghost stories to one of its houses, known as the “Tichnor place.” The Norwalk, Cono., gas company hopes to silence the satirical remarks of its custom ers with a new retort. An Illinois man has traveled through Pal estine at d is disgusted because- “he didn’t find a darned buckwheat cake after leaving America.’’ Always shut your bed-room door before re tiring. You may have to get up in the night, and closing a door with your nose is one of the lost arts. The mania for flashy imitation jewelry has broken out anong our belles again with great virulence. There must be a trace of semi-’oarbarism in |American society, to account for this Hottentotish taste. We read in the Herald with patriotic fer vor: “Hold your beads high, citizens of the American republic, who tread the soil where ever waves the blood-red and ycllow-jaundic ed flag of Spain.” H>oray! For full-dress, eentl -men wear instead of a watch chain a fob-ribbon, after tb ■ fashion of their grandfathers, with a seal attached, the older looking the better. This taste for old jeweliy is in opposition to slioddyism, the ob ject being to show that the wea er is not the first of the family who ever possessed any jewelry. The second Sam Patch is named George Watson, and he is a carpenter. He jumped over Passaic falls the other day, a distance of fully eighty feet, “to the boiling flood below,-’ and came up in even better condition than when he went down, for he was frightened and sober. There will not be another per formance, bowerer. until some fine day when George is drunk and ambitious. Apparently a most gt nerons hut very unde sirable sort of a friend one Mr. Poole of St. Louis has in a country town of Missouri. The other day he sent him an ugly, poison ous little lizard, with the caution that great care in handling him was needed, as he woulc dart forward and hit a man in the faco at a distance of nine feel. Jn the same letter he promised to send two young wolves and some rattlesnakes as soon as he could get them. — T One drawback to the enjoyment of a Euro pean trips is the “commission business.” Every Tom, Dick and Harry, and Mary and Jane of your acquaintance has a request for several dozen of gloves, unlimited sc-rfs, and umbrellas without, number, and in no case do they ever advance the money to pav for them. One young lady who sails shortly de clares that twenty “Saratogas” would not suf fice ;o con ain the quantities of things her dear 500 have begged her to bring then. Feeding Different Breeds of Fowls. The (ceding qualities of different breeds of fowls, as compared with each other, have been but little experimented upon. There Is. undoubtedly, as much difference in poultry in this respect as in farm animals. Field and Fictory con’ains an article on poultry raid ing, in which we find the results of feeding several different breeds, the experiment hav ing been instituted last year:— “Ten pullets each, of five breeds, each within a week of being six mouths old, were placed in yards, square, with co i forta ble houses 40 feet. For the next six mo>'tbs an account was kppt of their food and eggs produced, with the following results. The dark brahmas ate 369 1-2 quarts c.f com, o'ts. and wheat screenings, laid 605 f ggs, and weighed 70 pounds; feed cost $5 77; eggs sold frr 810.68; profit $5.41. The buft Cochins ate 400 quarts. laid 591 eggs, and weighed 73 lbs; feed, 86.34; eggs. $9.35; profit $3.21. The gray Dorkins ate 300 quart*, laid 424 eggs, and weighed 59 J-2 pounds; feed $4.87; eggs, $8.73; profit $3.86. The Houdans ate 214 quarts, laid 783 eggs and weighed 45 1-4 pounds; feed, $3.35; eggs, $13.50; profit, $9.70. The Leghorns ate 231 1-2 quarts, laid 807 eggs and weighed 36 12 hounds; feed, $3.62; eggs, $13.55; profit, $9.83. The reader can easily figure for himself the relative va'ue of the different breeds in this case from the results obtained. Tub Battle of Winchester.—During j Gcti. Sheridan’s stay here he was converg ing with a few friends touching his military experiences and campaign*, when he said: “There is a mighty sight of romauco and a great many interesting episodes connected with the war that the historians never got hold of. For instance, there has been a great deal said about the battle of Winches ter, a little affair in which 1 had a band. Well, it was a pretty square fight, but do you know that battle was fought on the strength of information which I • btained trora a young lady in the town of Winches ter, and if the rebels had known she was giv ing it to be they would have hung her in a minute? I was very anxiou* to get inlorma ti m of the rebel strength and movements, so as to know just when and where to st ike them, but I did not know how to get it. Fi nallv, I heard of a Union young lady in Winchester who could be relied upon if I could get word to her. Her name was Miss Wright. I think she is in the treasury de partment at Washington now. But the trouble was to co.nmun cate with her. One day I beard of an old colored man, living out side os my lines, who had a pass to go into Winchester to sell vegetables. I sent for the old man, and on talking with him found him loyal, as all the colored folks were, you know. Finding he could keep a secret, I asked him if he would undertake to deliver a letter to a young lady in Winchester. The old fellow said be would; so I wrote a letter on thir. tissue paper and rolled it up in tin foil. It made a ball about as big as the end of your thumb, and I told the" man t > put it in his mouth and deliver to Miss Wrlgiit in Win chester. He went off, and in about two days came back with an answei rolled up in a piece of tin foil. I found I had struck a mighty good lead, and I followed it carcfi lly till I got all the information I wanted. The girl gave me more important information than I got from all other sources, and I planned the battle of Winchester almost en tirely on what I got from her. Slic was a nice girl and true as steel.”—Indianapolis Journal. Pleasant for Charles.—The landlady of a boarding house on Fifth street, not far from Plum, a few days ago, suddenly opened the door of one of the married lady boarders, and found that lady in a rather curious posi tion. Sitting in a chair was a well-dressed youug man smoking a cigar. His knees were stretched apart, and kneeling on the floor, with one elbow on each of his knees, and, looking laughingly up in his face, was the married lady boarder. The landlady stammered, “Excuse me, I thought, Laura, that you were alone.” She cl ised the door a"d was about to go down stairs, when Laura came out and said, “You’ll exc ;se me, nlease, hut you know Will is an old friend of the family. He wxs my beau before I was married to Charley, and as Charley Is not likely to live long, when he dies 1 am go ing to marry Will.” “Ob, yes, that's all right,” said the ira»e landlady, “but I cau’t have such goings-on under my roof. You’ll have to get out ol here.” And so the land lady informed “Charley” (who is a jeweler working on Fourth street near Walnut) when he came home. Hut the jeweler icfusetl to move, and the landlady applied to a Justice of the Pence for advice in the matter, hearing which Charley and Laura will pack up and leave. Whether “Will” intends to wait, is whV puzzles the friends of the family,—Cin cinnati Enquirer. Emotional Poetry. (From tlio Atlanta Weekly). We’ve made it up witli tlie pCet. He wrote to us the other day, sa; ing that he would overlook the past and would like some money. ITe enclosed a poem, and hoped we would pay for it at the usual rates. So we called in our valuable sub-editor and read him the poem, as follows: The Venn. Pv, and mock us in 11. Inc, »S!fil«tabJth*r con,° and »ra r-no; He weep When spring’s violets are dvln Bio ilf,™1 * r ien ,ll1' "ln er i» flow n— uf. ,!vakc nnt doad florets to living, And s smllcs are fir sadder than Ions; And hope nnd too sunlight, deceiving. j ^ of (he yearn. ' 'Vbat c mbs on tlie morrow," Ana the nights say ‘ Our shallow profound iiuies terror and mystery an* sorrow— »> raps them close as a mantle around—** “That’s enough’’ said our sub editor, glancing dolefully at the mass of remaining manuscript, “if you print al! that, we shau’t have room for the book-notices, or yonr arti cle on the Credit Mobilier; and besides that’s too objectionably dismal.” So wc didn't print that poem, but wrote to the Poet—en closing him tome money and promising more if he would oblige us with some lines of a mote cheetful description. By return mail we received the following: ECSTASY. “The gnld of the mom shall be scattered— And the wild whirling dance of the stars In delirious circles through heaven Shall break down th«* nfght-clond’s black bars. ' Rejoice in mv marvellous madness! The flame that is lit in mv brain Shall hum through the nnconnted cvcloa— And the song that I sing shall remain !M We paused—‘‘the rest of this poem isn't of this mild, rationalistic sort “said we,’ it's evi dently written under considerable cerebral ex citement—too much for our eo'umns.” “It must be very imaginative, then" said the sub editor “an extravagant moon and stars danc ing break-downs is as mnch as I can enjoy at once,” But we printed those two verses— for it wouldn’t do to off nd the Poet again, you know. The next day our Model Subscriber called to see us—with a gentleman that we didn’t know, but who had an expression of slightly e? asperating compassion on his face as he shook hands with us. That man asked us all sorts of questions—sometimes he shook his head and said softly “Bad sign—very,” and then he would ask us another question. We had just concluded that ho was either a census man or slightly crazy, when h i took leave, and wcut into the sub-editor's room. We listened—and heard the stranger say calmly “He has lucid intervals—doesn’t be— pretty quiet to-day?” “He isn't pretty quiet” we shouted as the truth dashed upon us—that man was one of the experts of the Lunatic Asylum. We went for him, and were about to put him out, when the sub-ed itor suggested moral suasi >n. So we told him that that poem was by ro means an ex ponent of our personal views—that wbat brain we had was fireproof, without a man sard, and fully covered by insurance. (The sub-editor murmured “assurance” as the cor rect term, but we ignored him). We said that though calmly cheerful, the subscription list of the Weekly did not warrant such un limited jubilation on our part. Then ho apologized for his mistake, and departe 1, leaving behind him, however, in an elabor ately casual manner, a Httle tract on “Total Abstinence.” How are the Truly Good mls liulged! The Fetish of Society. In the Arcadian there are some sharp ob servations on “the parlor of the period.” Among those fetishes which we worship with slavish idolatry, none is more thorough ly our master than the pailor ot tha period. Coming in from the cheerful glare of day'lgh', the unhappy caller is blindly usherod into the mysterious chamber of horiois. Groping his way to find a seat, he hits his knee against the sharp cornered ottoman which lnrks in ambush on his path, or catches his feet in the iprawllug legs of tbe large easel on which it is now the fashion to display engravings and paintings, or rather the trames which are sup posed to set otf to advantage these works of art. As his eyes become accustomed to tbe ilim twilight, he gradually discerns chairs scattered around at regular distances, mote ottouions. a table or two with knick-knacks, at d, looming -up far away, a grim ptano foite carefully covered with a gloomy pall. It is too dark to read, too dark to examine the kiiick knacks, too datk to do anything but impatiently await tbe tardy hostess. Teti minutes of a life which ought at least to share at will in God's gifts of light and air are lost every time we visit a friend and are kept waiting in the dismal receptacle we call a parlr r. Into what tender spots docs the writer thrust his keen scalpel when be goes on in the following fashion about the thing of blessed memory, the “family album Among the miscellaneous articles is usually to be found that dreary udiction, the photo graphic album, the very apotheosis of family and friendly stupidity.
