One evening ho asked her to get her
mountain in Oregon, and come for u walk
when she indignantly rciAied, "I do in t
wear a mountain in Oregon, but u city
on the Caspian Cap."
They wandered silently through the
green lanes, and were standing pensively
under a town in Colorado near which
some swino were disporting themselves
in a pubblc, when she suddenly exclaim
ed, ' See how the hogs a town in Wash
lie had supposed that their mounta;ns
in Germany were filled with love, and to
have the illusion so rudely dispelled by
an allusion to animals that had such an
unpleasant riytr-oi Germany about them
wus too much.
IIo had received her remarks with a
cape in Canada, and as she seemed uu
aware of the mistake she had made, he
auswered hr remark with a contemptu

A few days afterward ho decided to

but she was not a the window as usual,

and a cape on the Atlantis coast took
possession of hi in.
On the sofa sat hi.s adorable with a

that he might go to city of Nova Scotia.
"Yes, do go away," said river of Sibe

My friend d.-clared he would give the

Yet.terclay afternoon wa were passing a
place of worship and we overheard- a
pretty young lady trying to teach souW
boys and girls to sing something t
sounded like: "Riug, ring, ring, merry,
merry, bcils, O, ring sweet E tster bells,
we'll sing the loud hosanna, and wave
pro '.idly our banner, while the bells of
Easter merry, merry ring, while the bells
of Easter ring."
The boys did'ut appear to be siuging
as well as the teacher wished and she was
showing fulsome flattery to encourage
them to do better, but like everything
else it became tedious aud wearisome.
The lady wound up her eulogy of the
boys' abiliti s by saying "Xow, boys. I
know you can do better if you only try.
I am cure you can beat the girls, although
vou ar fond of the girls, and the giris
are fond of " "Oh rats! Givcus a
a rest!" was the cruel, cutting ejaculation
of a three-year-old toddler.

A Youthful Assailant Shot.
Sax Antonio, Tex., March 30. Yes
terday evening Lubbock and Clarence
Cla.ik, sons of prominent stockmen, and
neither over 19 years, quarreled and
fought in the western suburbs. Lubbock
was b idly worsted. To day accompanied
by his father, he met young Clark. The
oltler man declared that the fight must
be resumed, as his son had not had a fail
show. Young Clark was willing, and the
mill was resumed. John Lubbock again
went under, and was being rapidlv
pounded, when his father took a hind,
whereupon young Clark knocked the obi
man down. 'As he rose the elder Lub
bock pulled a pistol ami fired several
shots at his youthful assailant, one bulb t
going through his thigh, making & seri
ous wound. Lubbock was arrjsted and
placed under $2000 bond.
A Mexican Herder H5 Years Old.
El Paso, Tex., April 2. Roman Baca,
one of the wealthiest citizens of New
Mexico, who has held many of the high
est ofiices in that territory, lives at San
Mitco, in Bernalillo county. He is prin
cipally engaged in raising sheep, ami he
sells many thousands of his wool clips in
El Paso. He states that an instance of
remarkable longevity thoroughly nfii n
ticated is found on his estate at San Ma
teo, lie has on the place a sheep herder
who followed that ccSpation under Ro
man Baca'a father. He is hearty and ro
bust, and does a day's wo: k as well as
any herder on the place. Documents ex
isting on thti estate show that this her
der is at least 115 years old. It is thought
that instances of extreme longevity are
more numerous among the lower class of
Mexicans than anv other race.

The ubove conversation occurred one fino
Sunday at Moscow ltctvver n Vnssiii Iwano
viteh PoiK)ir, a middle class "notable" and
merchant, and hi.s wife, Avdotia Iwanowno.
The worthy couple were sitting after mass
at a table, on which stood a gigantic "samo
var" pulling out jets of vapor. Tor tho ten
years preceding tho same conversation,
slightly varied, lint! o-r-v-e.! .- :
Sunday had come round, that being tho only
day of tho week that the Popon"s were able to
ec-o much of each other ou account of the en
croachments of business cares, on tho other
days the husband going to his office promptly
at 7 in the morning, aud not returning until
Avdotia Iwanowna waj a dark little wo
man, strongly resembling a withered olive,
with sharp features and abrupt in her move
ments. Iler shrill voice made her servants
tremble and cut her husband's long speeches
very short. Tho latter was a large, tall man,
with fat cheeks, a heavy beard and C3'es that
were constantly winking. IIo was ns timid
as ho was big, and obeyed his wife as im
plicitly as one of tho enormous 1 arges that
are sometimes seen on the river is responsive
t the slightest motion of the little snorting
tug that is towing it along. Apparently
tiiey were the matrimonial complements of
each other, for they hail lived in this way
twenty years, during which period not a
single cloud had arisen above the family
For tho past ten years, however, an idea
had gradually invaded the circumscribed
brain of Vassili Iwanoviteh, and had at lat
taken complete po.-e.ssioii of that organ.
Ho wanted to see Paris, The narratives of
his friends regarding tho wonders of that as
tonishing city, which they had visited .either
ou business or pleasure, haunted him with
the jK-rthiacity of an oft recurring dream,
mi l hail finally aroused in him an insatiable
curiosity that he was unable, even if ho
w ished, to aiia3".
IIo had bought a "O aide to Paris," which
lie road secretly at Lis warehouse, and be
came so absorbed and absent minded during
its perusal that he made tho most ttUsuid
mistakes. Not 0:3- did ho givo his clerks
wrong directions when under the influe.it o
of his Gallic mania, but ono day, when acus
to::ior had asked him for tho address of a
merchant in St. Petersburg, he actual- re
plied, "Place do la Concorde."
Avdotia Iwanowna, like a good wife, did
e'.l she could to tlisjK.1 what she called her
husband's "madness.'1 Sho kept her "neu
vaincs;" burned candles before the mirc.cl-y
working Virgin of Tvers Ka3'a; cons:ti';cJ
three celebrated fortune tellers c f Lhe city;
made; a pilgrimage to the convent of Troitjca,
not far from Moscow; ;raed, threatened to
do many terrible things, but did nothing.
With tho dogged determination of weak
natures, Vassili Iwanoviteh maintained a
fctoieal silence when, assailed by his wife's re
proaches; but ns soon as tho violence of tho
fclurm waj Sj ent ho would hazr.nl a few timid
observations oa treer general subject.
This journey, ho.would urge, might bo tho
means of oixjning up relations with Franco
for his business. The great exhibition that
v,T.3 about to take place would givo him ia
formation l'iruing a mindier of matters
concerning v. i.ieh Iw was profoundly igno
rant; might, in fact, teach him much as to
many industries, et-
Weary cf dis-euesion, Advotia Iwanowna
had ended by turning a, deaf ear to all her
lnisbiiid's lvfemnces to tho unwelcome sub
ioctra jtjlicy that caused the confiding
Vassili, compelled to make a confidant of
some one, to pour out tho fullness of his
heart into the bosom of his old servant,
Tho day following that on which the above
conversation occurred, that is to say, on
Monday, an unpredentod event took place in
t'no PopoiT- household. Contrar3 to tho cu't'
tom'of vears, Vassili Iwanoviteh eauio rustl
ing home at noon, Jliiohed with excitement,
out of breath, his face covered with perspira
tion, and holding an open letter in his hand.
"Here, read this; it has just come!" he
shouted, as he caught sight of his better half.
Tfie poor woman gazed at hiin in amazement
and alarm. She believed her- husband hot
become suddenly insane.
Th& lei'r boio a forc-Jgn stamp, and was
couched in tho following terms:
"Sir The numerous orders that wo are

"J)o calm, Avdotia Iwanowna," replied
the old man. "Heaven is merciful ; we shall

Our two Muscovites made tho journey to

p. m. on tho "'Id. From Herliu I'opolF lind
tclegraphetl William Spark that he would
seo him the next day.
At tho Gare du Nord an interpreter got
them a carriage, that in due course deposited
them in tho immense court 3'nrd of the Hotel
du Louvre, which, largo as it seemed, was
filled with vociferating travelers and their
In tho midst of tho tumult Fopofi' and
Anissime 03' expressive gestures succeeded in
explaining to tho hot-1 people that thtw were
in want of rooms. After some trouble the3"
were usheretl into an elevator am! carried to
the sixth story with u rapidity that caused
poor Anissime to cry out in fright. Ho be
lieved that he was being carried off hj' the
spirit of evil.
Vassili Iwanoviteh, scarcely less perturbed
than his humble companion, was not at. id:
sorry to get out of tho il ing machine. Tin 3
then went along the corridor, as thev had
been directed there happening to bo no ser
vant disengaged at tho moment to show tint
way aud pushing open a door that closed
again of its own accord, they found them
selves in utter darkness. As Vassili Iwano
viteh stumbled ugainst a bed, and not being
acquainted with the customs of H i.-. hotels,
he undressed himself 113- the sense of fin-ling,
and, nearly dead with fatigue from his long
jonri-.ej', tumbled in and was soon asleep.
How much timo had elapsed since that mo
ment? M3ster3' of Hysterics! Vassili Iwano
viieh first opened 0110 eye, then tho other, I
said, with a yawn:
"Art thou asleep, AnissiuKj?"
";-To, Vassili Iwanoviteh,'' replied tho faith
"Hast thou been awako long;"
"I know not, Vassili Iwanoviteh.'
"Since it is still night, let us t ry to get mire
sleep, Anhisi me. ''
Silence reigned again. Popoff, who had
been following his own advice, wa5awakei-d
1'3' the falling of a piece of fiirnitare.
"Is it thou, A uis:oi-e:" lie cried.
"It is I, Va -ili Iwanoviteh," replied the
servant. "I have been feeling 1113 way
around the room, and have found a window.

"Well, let us sleep again then; it seems to
mo that the nights are of an extraordinaiy
length in this latitude."
Another relapse into the arms of the sleepy
god when Vassili Iwanoviteh was suddenij'
brought to his senses b- a very decided and
not very agreeable feeling of cramps in his
"Anis'mo," Le exclaimed, "knowest thou
thai. 1 am terribly hungry? Ljok again
through the window aad see v. hether there
are 3"ct 3113- signs of the dawn."
"I, too, am hungry, Vassili Iwanoviteh,
hut it stili night, flo-.-.- vtr, one thing sur
prises me greatly. OuU.;tIe the window there
is a most overpowering smell of cheese."
"Ciieoso V.'e must have been lodged over
a creamery, then, Anist-'me. 1 wish we could
get down to it, but there is 110 dwmco of its
being open at this hour,1'
"I am afraid not, axili Iwanoviteh."

Anisshne! Anissime!1' shouted the unfor
tunate Fop:iir, unable longer to disregard
his physical tortures. "I believe I have tho
cholera. Thou must find tho door."
Tho two travelers began to call for help,
pounded or: tho walls, and demeaned them
selves more like lunatics escaped from La
3afitetiere than like ordinary lodgers in a
first class hotel.
At last steps could be heard in the corridor.

the cost of continental traveling, tho Rus
sians di-ieovered that they were occupying a
room used for the storage of wornout trump

large piece of cheese had been stored and for
gotten. The services of an interpreter having Ijf-ea
