Enos, of this city, had a narrow escape from drowning in Otter Creek yesterday. The creek was swollen by rain, and as the Doctor entered the'ford the current: carried the horses off their feet, dragging the top buggy with them till the top of the buggy was below the water. Dr Enos swam to the shore and caught the overhanging limb, of a tree, when he saw the horses ;fapidly going down stream. He'sawjboth horses sink and then saw one come to .the surface. This horse was. saved. The other was was found a quarter of a mile below, dead. It belonged to Mr. Robert Morehouse. of Fort Worth, Tex. The Presidency. NEW YOUK, April 28.—Several weeks ago Hon. Smith M. Weed, the Democratic sage of Plattsburg, Jtold a reporter that President Cleveland would not accept a renomiuation f or the Presidency. To-day Mr. AVeed reiterated his statement and indorsed fully the dispatch from Washington publishedsin tthe St. Louis Republican to-day, in which tho President says he will not again be a candidate for that high oflice. Mr. Weed has unusual sources of information. He is on intimate terras with the President. He has never sought office, and in tup .inner circles of politics it is known that Mr. Weed was offered but declined to accept the secretary- ship of the treasury. The body is more susceptible to benefit from Hood's Sarsapanlla now than at any other season. Therefore, take it uow. \\ A Mexican Boudoir. The room in thi« cnsa which la my especial sanctum is daintily orienta enough for any caliph or piwlm to oc ojiipy, writes Fannie Ward. Its tnas slvo door, elaborately carved by hautli that have boon dust these many yoars wus never spoiled by "paint or varnish It is' garnished with '(mormons ivoi hinges and staples, like the fastenings of a barn, and opens of course into tin udper corridor facing tho court, Thi one window looking.upon tho street ii indeed "a thing of beauty avid a jo; forever," the soft gray of its woodoi bars (in lieu of tho customary iron) enlivened by tho scarlet blossoms o tho vino clambering up outside, whili its deep ledge-serves me for a book case, writing desk and curiosity shol in general.- There are neither shade nor glnss in this window, and its dakoi shutters are seldom closed. Doubtless its tiny balcony has been used many times a la Juliel by generations of pro vious occupants,' who have been wooei and won by serenading liomeos, ac cording to the Mexican coslttmbrc. My room is floored with square tiles of I'ompeian red, with a rug ot braidec straw, and a goatskin before the bet —which my soul appreciates, I assure you—between my slippers and these pld bricks, which feel like tombstones in the early mornings. Hero are chairs enough to seat the whole Mexican army, almost, ranged in funeral rows straight around the four walls. The usual triangular tables are fitted into each corner, and there are severa qiiaint articles of 'furniture of solic mahogany, claw-footed and brass bound, brought from France or Spain by the grandparents of riiy hostess, every one of which would delight the eyes of an antiquarian. But the chief treasures that would shine in any col lection of ceramics in the land are the great water jar and bowl of native pottery—dark red, with strange figures painted upon them—which it would be no sin to worship, since they are not "in the likeness of anything in the heavens above, or the earth beneath, or the waters under the earth." My little brass bedstead, whose slender frame-work is kept so polished that it glitters like gold, is draped, curtained and berufiled like a French woman's, but has no manner of springs, and its adamantine mattress I frould gladly exchange for a good, soft board! Wo have no "quilts'. 1 and seldom any use for blankets in this portion of Mexico; and the single counterpane : of damask, gorgeously flowered in crim- ,aon and green, fringed all around and tassoled at the corners, is carefully disposed so as not to conceal the fine linen sheets which trail far below it. The latter are edged on all sides with lace and garnished with much "d.rawn work" of exceeding fineness and elaborate pattern. Mexican pillows are not fat and squava, like ours, but arc narrow, flat, and each exactly as long as the bed is wide, like our bolsters. Their pink or crimson "ticks" are stuffed with cotton or Spanish moss (never with'feathers) and their cases are tho special pride of the housewife. They are of finest liiien, with broad stripes of crocheted or lace insertion set in at the sides. ; Over the various species of animals which occupy that couch conjointly with myself, disputing its possession, and often gaining the day—or rather the night—it is well to discreetly draw the-veil, mei'cly remarking that in this tropical climate other creatures aliound than the wicked flea—especially when "no'man pursucth." Very sensibly, in this vermin-infested country, trunks are never set flat upon the floor and their contents left to the tender mercies of mice, cockroaches el al., but are elevated upon rocks made for the purpose. Closets and ' : wardrobes nro'uiikt'ioWn in Mexican houses, but chests, bureaus and wooden pegs answer all purposes.— N, Y.
