Tlicre was once a little fairy In, o toy shop In the west, '' 1 Dressed In trarments white and shining With a crown and Hpanplecl vest. And hor eyes were blue and tender, Ami her smile was fflnd and awctt; Bho was wound Inside -with clockwork, So shu danced with tireless ffsot. It chsir.ced thnt to the window Cams a little prince one day, In n dainty suit oC velvet And a ot\p with feathers gay. And he praised her for her hoauty And tho llchtncsa of her dance, Till her foolish heart was fluttered By tho wonder of hla glance. Tho llt'.lo prince was wealthy. So ho bought her for his own, And the fairy and her spanglea And her heart were his alone. Then sho whispered, oh, so gladly, As ho bore her faraway: "Though I'm but a silly fairy He will love me now alway." But he wearied of his plaything, Just ns wiser people do, And ho broke her heart, they tell m«, When she old and faded grew. He had other thlnpe to pleaeo him— Ships and horses too, I trow, Anil you wouldn't know the fairy If you chanced to see her now. —Florence Iloaro, In Pall Mall Gazette. ADVENTURE WITH A LION.

I speak DOW simply from a home experience—from what I have seen of him in zoological pardons, traveling: caravans and menageries; but, judging 1 from these posts of observation, I think T have formed a tolerably fair estimate of his character nnd disposition. The story of the mouse that nibbled the net, set the captive monarch free, and earned, the lattcr's undying 1 gratitude; with thai of." An- droelcs, picking- out the thorn, and discovering an old friend years irTterwards n tho fierce animal who had been commissioned to eat him, are all very well, nnd pretty and picturesque in their ivay, but these were evidently exceptionally good-natured brutes, iui,l modern representatives of the "genus" would. I fear, have exhibited fur less cruple and made short work of both. I have always, from a boy, liked to Btand within a few inches (the bars be- ween us) of one of these ma jcstie creatures, end peer into those huge bronze eyes, -turned scornfully away with that ar-ofT look as though gazing into the lepths of distant forests. I was one- d»y thus interestingly engaged, when a •oung artist came, with crayons nnd ketch-book, in the hope of getting z. food front view ofour tnwny friend's )hysiognomy and transferring it after- vari.7s to canvas; but the lattcr.not in a nood to appreciate the compliment, vheeled deliberately round and sat lown with his back to us. Celling tired >fthesulks,howevcr,byandby he arose nd went to quench his thirst, nt the rough. "Nothing could be. better," ricd the enraptured artist, "I wanted . o catch him at that," nnd he made u pltudid picture with a.few masterly" trokes of a little bit of charcoal, held ig-hlly between his'fingcr and thumb. On another occasion Istood-watch'in.sr very largo lion in (hoL Zoological ardens. Fie had finished his dinner nd was lying half asleep in thefrontof ic cage, with his paws crossed and a uge we!l-]>olished bone between them, •hen a handsome, young sailor .approached, put his hand coolly through, seized the drowsy captive by the mane, nnd shook him a-s one would a tame cat. Tlie lion awoke quickly at the insult, nnd darted forth a paw, butl pulled the daring youth back by the collar just in time to save his arm. I shall not soon forget the rage of the angry hcast behind the bars, the lightning flash of his eyes, and the roar he'sct up at not being able to redress the grievance. Let me now shift the scene from England to » small-settlement in upper Cutiada, 100 miles or more north of Lake Ontario, and not far from one of my old huhting-grtiunds. Hnns Derrick, ftn enterprising show- rrian, by dint of infinite pains and perseverance, had brotig'ht up his fonr car- nvnns of animals into the "bush" on exhibition. Being quite a new thing In thflt out-of-the-way part of tho world; Derrick's collection drew, numbers at people from the neighboring settlements, and there was a full tent of enthusiastic spectators, a wild-benst performance being promised ns part of the show. Next to the elephant, who claimed tho largest share of popular wonder and admiration, the lion— called "Gen. Taylor," in compliment to that military hero who was then earning Laurels in Mexico—enjoyed a fair amount of both. 'He was a prodigiously fine specimen, and, except now and then, when something.ruffled him (on which occasion he thought nothing 1 of eating a keeper or two),, a beast af tolerably amiable deportment end gentlemanly manners. 1 was subsequently informed that'-he had bitten'off .tho head of a young girl who was supposed to be a'particular favorite of his. Derrick, though I detected a little anxiety^ on his countenance at times, was able to walk into his cage, carfrss-him, and do other things that kept the onlook; er.s' hearts in a pleasing state of palpitation. Having 1 gone through these rveryclny ftiits. he now advanced, whip In hand, and invited any person present, to accompany him into the den nm! shake its grim occupant by the paw. . There was a dead silence. No one moved. • : ' •••••'• ...•'.. ;'>-\viil ; any gentleman •' come ''for.- wrirxl?" repeated Ban«. .gazing, round th« .sea o£ faces.

"Have n red-hot iron icudy," whispered Hans to n tn.ll and-powerful negro, who was one of h'is staff, I regarded this "ii«ic!u" ;:s a test for niy nerves, but leani-td urUTwn.rds that Derrick was not joking 1 , the "General's" temper being often' extremely uncertain. Hans now entered the long caravan, desiring me to follow and close the door behind me; to keep my eye slend- ily on "Taylor," nnd when I retired, to walk slowly backwards while he (Derrick) covered my retreat. He then guve the general a smart cut or two with his whip—for which plnyful piece of chastisement I was certainly notable to appreciate the exact necessity at this critical moment. The people in the circus nearly all leaped to their feet us word went round that the "General" lu;d b<-i-n the death of ttvo of his vnlets-dc-ehar.itre, and severely bitten and clapper-clawed another, who was only rescued from his clutch by the application of a kitchen poker at a white" 7 hear, thrust into his flank. I held up my hand to brg fcir quiet, but it was of no use; sonic of the men scrambled over the benches ;:ixl strode forward boisterously. I did not feel encouraged by this impudent display of interest in the proceedings, but I knew that it was best to put a bold front on matters: and walking steadily forward, T placed i*y hand upon the g-igantic beast's shoulder, smoothing' down his mane a.t the same time in a way that I intended to be friendly. "So, ho. General! Soho, old boy!" This was the easiest part of the business, aud my reception (i!Ot having teen honored with an invite) was more gracious than I had any rig 1 !! tor reason to expect. "How do you feel, sir?" inquired Hans. "Pretty calm and collected?" "Oh, quite, thank 'you." "Ever presented before?" "* "Only once that I am able to recollect." "There's a claw for you!" holding it up with an air of pride. "Mind you don't tread on it, for it would take a handsomer apology than you could offer to atone for the ofTcns'i." "I will endeavor not to offend." "Would you like to put your head in the General's month?" ' "Decidedly not. being 1 unprovided with a spa re one." "Will yon geton his ba<!k?" "1 should prefer taking 1 n few riding lessons first. Will you oblige me by keeping that whip of yours quiet." "\VelJ, yes. Open your jaws. General, und show the gentleman your box of ivories. Not a bad set of masticators, sir, are they?" "Very fine, indeed;'and nJl-his owe, T presume?" "Just so," laughing; "he has not troubled ihc dentist much that I am aware, ot." The lion at tJiis juncture of the din-, login; pave me a most malignant look, Was he hurt at what I was insinuating about his teeth? .And there was a sup- • pressed veil triloquia I roar and rumbling 1 , like thunder dying away among- distant hills. •,. • "I was wrong 1 ," muttered. Derrick, with it slight ht-Mtnlion in his'i^anner, '•our friend is not in the best of tempers to-night. T would ' ratlier you didn't stjiy longer. He is displeased at something'.

Jeff McDcrmott, one of the pioneers rf the Black Hills region, is likely to become a millionaire. Some time ago lie went to old Mexico, and in a camp known, as Baborigame met Gad Freeman, un old-time friend who had become a Mexican in mode of life. Freeman had a valuable concession of mineral land from the government, embrae- ; ng a scope of country 30 miles in length and several miles in width. He took McDermott in' as a partner, and the latter at once commenced prospecting for quartz. Re soon discovered a ledge J<) feet wide of high-grade, ore. The ledg-c was stripped for 1,000 feet of its length and samples of the ore sent to St. Louis for a test. The returns were so rich that an expert, accompanied by other interested parties, started at onee for the camp. They made n thorough examination and took a complete sample *i-om the vein to Denver for the purpose of having it assayed. A number of assays were made, all with the pa.me re- Fiilt, the values ranging from $4,000 to $3,000 fTolrl a ton. The final test war, one load of 50 pounds, and this yielded goM to the aroonntof $23.G. r i. A sale was r.1 once made of a sixty-fourth interest in the property to the St. Louis parties In consideration of $200,000 a-iul the erection of a mill on t.he property. The $22.05 button was presented to Mrs. Me- Dermott. who was in Denver at the time the assays' were ma.dc. The certificate shows the metal to be-almost pure. McPcrmott writes to his friends ! n South Dakota that Mex'co is H. great country. The mines have been worked in a slipshod ma.nner by the natives,who have no knowledge of modern methods cf mining.

J. YV. Patrick, now a freight clerk at Cincinnati, 0., said the other day in s-.peaking of the democratic presidential nominee: "I paid Billy Brj'an the first money he ever earned. I used to live in Sa]em, 111., and was well acquainted with the Bryans. I was in the hay business then. North of Judge Bryan's farm were 2'10 acres, which he wanted to get for his boys. Billy, who was the-oldest, he thought might make a lawyer, but he was sure the others would be farmers. Finally the judge backed me nnd I leased tha farm. The first season T had 240 acres of wheat. Just as I _was 'beginning'harvest that year—it was 1S73—Judge Bryan rode ouit vith Billy and told me to make a hand of him arid pay him what he was worth. The boy was just out of school. I needed a water boy, so I took .Tudge Bryan's old buggy horse, tied two gallon water jugs with, a rope and hoisted t.hem and Billy on the horse's back. During that harvest young Bryan followed the machines around the field on the horse's back. Even then that boy would discuss politics at noon time. REIGN, OF TERROR.

On August £0 the Floyd Memorial association of Sioux City, la., will hold its reg-ulnr annual memorial service over thu grave of Sergt. Charles Floyd, a member of tlie Lewis and Clark expedition, who died nc:ir the present site of Sioiix City, while on his way with his c5i:i pan ions to the headwaters of the Missouri river in the autumn of IS04. As Floyd was tha first United Stntes solclicr who died in the Louisiana purchase', his death is invested with historical interest which the memorial cs- soci.itiOTj is sparing nopnins to observe. The organization was formed several Yenrsago,butwns seriously handicapped at the outset by lack of funds. Floyd's grave, which had been changed several times owing to the caving of the bluff on which, it was located, was. finally found with considerable difficulty acd the soldier's Txiiics inclosed in a metal casket and reinter'red in a plot of ground near their original resting place purchased for the purpose;by the association. A marble slab was laid-on the- grave last August and elaborate ceremonies in which prominent historians of the Lewis and Clark expedition from rill over the country participated. Among those present were Dr. Elliott Cones, o£ Washington, D. C., and I'rcf. James Butler, of'the Wisconsin state university, the owner of the original Floyd diary, one of the most interesting relics of the expedition. Dr. Coues prepared a manuscript of tlie proceedings, 'which it is designed to put in pamphlet •form'as'soon•• ay the association is able to command the nccessnry funds: The ceremonies,this year will be less elaborate than thoseof 3805, but.several prominent men have signified their intention to be present.and n most interestirg meeting is anticipated.
