( ' Oh, the sinse av itl"—Life. Wolfe Tone. A desultory and enormous reader of plays and novels, with an impish hu- , mbr and a facility and felicity of quotation which never deserted him under , the most terrific circumstances, Tone's \ style is throughout literary and in that \sense artificial, bat he had a passion for facts and a healthy determination to see ' things as they really were. He is per" J'eotly free from every kind of illusion, i . 4elnsJon an,d humbug. , Hp is very much alive to the humor. , ous sjde of all things, including him- l , self, The diaries are full of entries like , thjg; /% , "I cannot hejp this morning thinking 1 p,f Gil Bias when he was secretary to Pake of Lerma, Yesterday I dined Carnpt, Today I should be puz- to raise 9 guinea."

Landlord Allan is always looking for a good thing and always recognizes it when he seel 'it. This he found in a Washington paper, and the local application makes it the tnore interesting! If there is a good story born in Washington, it is a two to one shot that its cradle wilt He in the back parlor of John Chamberlin's, Dr, Edward Bed* loe camo over from Philadelphia one night and sat therein entertaining a choice group of friends With tales of the far east. In the edge of the group sat a man from Pennsylvania, who had come over from Pottsville on some government contracting business. He was all ears and eagerness. His name was Strati EH. Finally the restraint became too intense, and he broke loose. "Toctor," said he, "what is dot new relichun I beers off about China? My wife has got it ferry bad, und I don't understand it." "Tell me the name," said Bedloe. "Is it Mohammedanism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Taoism, Confucianism or ; whatV" "Oh, it is no isms, but dor name is like a tramp's migrashun of der soul, am'd it?" "Oh, you doubtless mean transmigration of the soul." "Yah, dot's it. Yon dell me about dot." "Certainly. Transmigration of the soul is a very pretty poetic doctrine of metempsycliosis which our friends of the Theosophical society have borrowed from the far east"—— "Here, here, toctorl Tell me vot dot means, so I can understand what you vos talking ahoud." "All right, I will tell you in plain language. Take yourself, for instance. You livo to the allotted age of threescore years and ten, and then you pass away. Your soul goes into the body of a bird—a canary, we'll say—and from your gilded cage you fill a lady's boudoir with the melody, living a life "of luxury and fed from the dainty fingers of beauty" "Oh, dot is peautiful, peautiful! 1 likedotl" "And then you die again, and your soul goes into a lovely flower in a garden, and you fill all the air with fragrance and delight the eye with your exquisite color and delicacy of petals"— "Ah, dot is fine! I like dot reliohun." "As I was saying when you interrupted me, you live the life of a flower, until one day a donkey gets into the garden, and attracted by your loveliness he eats you, and your soul passes into the donkey" "i r ah, yah." "When some former acquaintance comes along, strokes your long ears and says:'Why, Strauss, is it you? How little you have changed!' "—Pottsville (Pa.) Republican. Know When They Are Hungry. Pigeons must have the credit of possessing some intelligence. A curious and very interesting sight may be seen each day, Sundays excepted, at one of the windows of the office of Henry W. Williams, in the Eialto building, opposite the postofflce. For the past few years some 80 or 40 pigeons have been there regularly fed at 11 o'clock. A bushel of cracked grain is purchased at a time for the purpose. The birds gather on the west side of the postofflce and watch for the window to open. They know perfectly well when that hour arrives. If there should chance to be any delay in opening the window, they will often fly over to the other windows of the same office and tap on the glass to remind the clerks who may be sitting there that it is time for their breakfast. The minute the window opens they land on and about the sill and push and crowd and stand on each other's backs and sometimes fight, so eager are they to pick up the grain which is spread all about the outside. They soon become quite tame and readily eat out of the hand.—Boston Transcript. Discovered. Mr. Flathouse—What did you kick ma Under the table fof when I asked Gorge' leigh to have some more terrapin? Mrs. Flathouse (severely) — For tw< reasons. There was no terrapin, anc Mot being a skirt dancer I couldn't kick OVef iti^- Excursions, On Sept. ]1 and 25 and Oct. 9, 1894, the Northwestern line will sell home- seekers' excursion tickets to points in northwestern Iowa, western Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota^ Manitoba, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, and Montana fit exceedingly low rates for the round trip. .These tickets will be good for return passage within twenty days of the day of sale, and will allow stop-over privileges on going: trip in territory to which tickets are sold.
