A story of personal heroism has coino tc
our knowledge which certainly deserves to 1m)
told, nlthongh, for excellent reasons which
cannot hero Iks htated, tho names nml precise
location cannot 1 given. The other day, on
ono of tho streets of Ilostou devoted to resi
dences, n young lady a cultured, wealthy
and "society" girl looking from n second
story front window, saw n servant girl rim
from tho opposite house, with her clothing
all ablaze. It was tho work of nn instant to
sclzo a largo sofn blanket and run down tho
stairs, out into tho stivct, jiursuo tho fright
ened girl, and wrap her in tho big red
blanket, llomemlierlng tho furious wind, it
was ono of thoso times when ft mluuto
counts. To tho young lady's bravery tho
poor girl owes her life, as tho street was
almost deserted, and investigation afterward
showed that tho clothing was nearly all
burned from her body. Of her skirts nothing
was loft hut tho bindings and a ragged
fringe; her hair was singed and tho exposed
flesh badly burned. It is a. pleasure to bo
nblo to say that tho young lady did net ro
cclvo tho least injury, If a slight strain of tho
wrist bo excepted. Huston Transcript.
(Inrgenusness of n Itojnl Nurse.
It is somowhnt singular that tho most gor
geously dressed person In all tho Spanish
court should bo tho mirao of tho infant king,
a comely person in face nnd form. Ordlnn
rily sho wears n rich velvet skirt, with two
broad bands of gold round it, n bluo velvet
apron, also trimmed with gold, and a lxxllco
of black velvet, fastened with lovely silver
buttons, wh Icli ojiensonan inner bodlco of
lino lawn with laco. Itound her neck aro
flvo or six rows of coral beads, and sho wears
long earrings of tho sumo material. A rich
silk handkerchief is fastened over her dark
hair, which she arranges Madonna fashion in
front. For occasions of stnto thero aro other
costumes more huuiLsomo as hundsomc, says
tho chronicler, as any tho nobility wear.
Wedding I'reMeiits In I'ranee.
Wedding presents hnvolicconio so gorgeous
that people) of moderate menus aro afraid to
send what thoy can iiflord. This fashion,
started among tho frugal Dutch, of giving
tho young couplo their household furniture
and h sum of money to begin life with, hoi
degenerated into a vulgar display of wealth.
Tho French have a w Iser plan. Tho relatives
mnko up a sum of money as n wedding gift
and send it to tho irido's mother, who spends
it for her daughter In jewels, laces or what
ovcr wjems liest. Wo hivo had tho good
sonso to nbjuro tho English wedding favors

Ono of tho largest graves in which a slnglo

thero. Ono day tho old man went into tho
pit nlono to iusjiect it. Whilo ho was in a ro
mote gallery tho roof of the mine caved in
and tho waters of a subterrnncau stream
flooded the mine, It was, of course, im'ossi
bio to recover tho body of tho drowned
miner, so his sons simply closed up tho shaft
and erected tho headstone sacred to their
