Charles Lamb's IheffedtUal dramas is Called "Mr.'H.," its nbt very entertaining plat turning on' the concealment ef the here's real name, which in the end is found to be Mogsflesh. Headers of Dickens will remember "Mr. £'B aunt," while the riots at Convent Garden theater, familiarly known as the "0. P." riots, live chiefly in the pages of "Rejected Addresses." When members of the same profession - speak of individuals by professionally abbreviated titles, it is generally a sign that the speakers are "talking shop." Army men, for instance, strew their conversation and documents with so many Vowels and consonants that they seem to be making use of a special cipher, unintelligible to outsiders. There is nothing derogatory to a member of parliament or a queen's counsel in being spoken of as "M. P." or "Q. C."; it .is a familiar abbreviation In which all the members of parliament and all the queen's counselors share, and written documents are naturally so addressed, but some of the abbreviations used in conversation have a decidedly colloquial ring about them. As a nation we seem to have a faculty for casting oft superfluous words and phrases and for making use of contractions', and our titles of honor present a perennial source of difficulty to the foreigner. It must puzzle a Frenchman unacquainted , with our social distinctions to discover the meaning of "Bart." or "Kt." or "Esq.," or to unravel the intricacies of VK. C. S. I." or "M. F. H.," though on the part of a Briton such ignorance would mean ignorance of the usages of society. On the other hand, initials may be used in a derogatory sense. If we hear in private conservation a man referred to as "old J.' we may be sure it is hardly intended as a compliment; while the bourgeoise who calls her husband "Mi\ J." at once conveys to her hearers a sense of easy and vulgar familiarity. In our complex civilization symbols have come to be looked upon as integral portions of the system of decorations and awards. A Woman Rides a Vrnko Benin. On the arrival '• of a Burlington freight train at Huntly, Mont., recently, the trainmen discovered a young and handsome woman and a boy riding upon one of the 1 ; brake beams in ap-, proved tramp fashion. The woman gave her name as Mrs, Peterson, and said her husband, a barber, had deserted her and a baby several months ago at Billings. Besides herself and baby, she had a mother and a little .brother; to support. A few days ago she spent her last money to purchase tickets for her mother and baby to .Sheridan, Wy., where they have friends, and one night she took the little brother climbed on the brake beam of an outgoing freight, and had been riding nearly all night when discovered. The trainmen gave them a place in the caboose the remainder of their, journey. Stilt Nearer, .Relationships are very confusing to the juvenile mind, but there'are not many children so delightfully at sea as the small girl of the following story: She appeared with a small brother at a public school, and gave in their names' as "Ralph and Edith Johnson," "Brother and sister, I suppose," said the teacher. "Oh no, ma'am," said the little girl, "we're twins!" NEWSY TRIFUES.

We were eager for the fray, "Just before Grant Invested Donelson we encountered a'scoutlng party of Michiganders. They numbered only about forty, and the colonel took the company to which I belonged and attempted to head them off. They made a hasty scamper for a brush field that was surrounded by a rail fence, and we broke ranks and lit out after them in go-as-you-please order. Every man ol us wanted a yankee and realized that there were not enough to go round. Just as we mounted the fence we, received a volley that laid a score of men out. Before we could recover from our surprise those Mlchiganders were over the fence and at work on us with their sabers and six-shooters. ; We concluded that we had made a mistake—that we didn't want any yankees after all. "The colonel was the first man back tOf camp. Half his left ear had been shot away and he had an ugly saber gash in his shoulder. I helped the surgeon fix him up, arid after we had made him comfortable he turned to the major, who is also an editor,;and said solemnly: 'Yer've been a-tellin' us in yer darned old paper that the yankees wouldn't fight. Dodrat yer measley hide, what do yer call flghtin'?'- The major replied that were westerners, only half yankees. 'Only half yankees!' snorted the colonel. 'Damme if I ain'ti goin' home!
