. THE QUESTION.
Momentous, at Ieaat, to Young
Men and Maidens now ShfiU
a Man Propose?
St. Louis roct-Dkpatcb.
"How shall a man propose in order to be
snccemful In bis sultT repeated one of our
most Intelligent society ladies, whose silver
locks only serve to enhance the beauty of ber
still youthful face, "In my opinion, though
all men know well enough how to 'make love,
there is not one in a thousand who knows
how to proposo. My husband Fjient six
months protecting and convincing me of bis
love, of which, by the way, I was well aware
from the first, without once asking mo tho
important question, 'Will you marry tnef
and finally one day said to me, with a clia-tinai-tcned
air, 'You are like all the rost. a
perfect enigma. I have sjwnt mouths trying
to win you, and I do not know that I havo
mailo any impression ijxn you ; you are as
hard to uuravol as tho scarf you wear around
your throat' 'This, I exclaimed, in the most
innoreut way, 'why, 'tis no difficult task to
unravel it, if you only get hold of the right
striug.' Ho saw the point, took hold of the
right Ktring, and "HiH arm took the place
of the scarf 1" "Well, neither of ui have ever
ON HIS KNEE9.
Ono lady, tho wife of a learned judge, said:
" Tis eighteen 3'oars since that dear man
made a fool of mo, and after so great a lapse
of tiino you cannot export mo to remember
how he did it. I'll vow bo went down on his
knpos, though you wouldn't think it to look at
bis rotund proportions. And I was silly
enough to believe every word ho said, and
when he drc!ared sole.nnly that he would
shoot himself if I did nol marry him of courso
I consented, just to save his lifo; but I'll not
be so tally another time- if lie only gives mo
"Don't believe a word of tliat," chimed in
thojudgo from behind ids paper. "I was
actually compelled ! -i-k her to marry mo to
get rid of the trouble of taking her or some
other girl nround; 1 s'uo was iu love with
mo, and thought she w..::M do as well as any
other. Now that suuis up the whole history
of this case."
f A brisi:' ) n-.l girl, w ho is a skillful angler for
heart?, tinuks a youn m-n, to ba successful,
Ishould propose af tor a very short acquaiat
ans, take tin; girl by storm, as it were, while
she is pleased w;th a now lieau, and beforo
she has time to tiro of him; then follow the
pro;iosal up with a vigorous courtship, lots of
flowers and bonbons, drivos, theatre urtiest
etc., and, if sho consent--;, insist upon a short
engagement by all means.
Another well-knowu bloada beauty, who
has created sad haviK:, and had much expt
rienco in this lino, snys the ouly successful
way is to propiso wh?:ti least expoctod. Allow
no time for consideration, and then insist
that th ncfcpi.-iiieu mast bv "now or never."
Sho feels sure that ls the only waj' that sho
will ever bo captured, hut sho thinks very
few men are boiJ enough to try that game.
Ono well-known belle and Insauty says that
"sho has had so many makes love to her that
she hardly knows what is the best and most
successful method. She was more occupied in
studying how to prevent an approach to the
subject than in facilitating it. Beaux wore all
lovely until they became lovers, thru they
became bores, for they moved, thought and
talked constantly o" themselves and Ihmr
happiness. Marriage is quite another tlung,
is quite easily settled, when one find-, a
Al'.Ot'ND THE WAIST.
A married lady, in whose household the
lil tie god of love certainly make hisabxxie,
says the only successful p:o;sition of which
she knows anything was nut do without a
word being spoken; "John and I sat looking
in tho fire a long time, without saying any
thing, when all at once ho put- his arm around
me, drew me to him and kissed me. When
father came in a moment- later he said: 'Major,
I'm going to steal your daughter.' "
A riark-oyed girl, with a tangle of soft
brown hair shading her brow, says "If a fel
low is desperately in love with a girl, and
pei-sistent in his efforts to wiu her, he is sure
to gain his suit. Widowers understand this
point, and know exactly how to make love
and propose, and you will oliscrve they are
always successful." Sho knows one case
where a widower wont in and hung up his
hat, announcing his intention of remaining
until he was accepted, and the girl had to
marry him to get rid of him. A widower
beau makes her -nervous about the result.
MARRYING IN HASTE.
? "The quickest courtship on record," said
one old resideut, "wiis that of Dr. Nick Mc
Dowell, who, driving along the street in bis
buggy one day, saw a beautiful girl standing
at the window. He immediately stopped and
hitched his horse, rang the tiell, inquired the
lady's name, was ushered into the parlor, an
nounced his own name', said he was "pleased
with her appearance ami wished to marry
her at once." Nothing but the knowledge
that she was actually in the presence of the
celebrated physician kept her from fainting.
To her plea of Surprise at this unexpected
announcement,' he only replied, 'Now r
never.' When she asked to 'lake a week to
consider,' he said, '1 am going down street to
attend a critical case and liave no tiuiu to
spare right now.'
' 'Give me a dav, then.'
" TU tell you what I'll do. When I cm
through with this professional visit, I'll drive
arouud ana get a preacher; if you've made
up your mind to marry mo by that time, all
right 1' and he left her, breathless and unable
to articulate another word. When be re
turned they were quietly married. 'No
no "pArxon" BEATJ.
A society girl, who evidently has a bead for
business as well as beaux, says: "No 'parlor
bean' need ever propose with any hope of
successs, for after a girl is compelled to bend
her whole en- gies to the task of entertaining
him 'quietly at home' for six months she
would be appalled at the proposition to spend
the baiauoe of her life 'quietly at home.'"
8be explains that a "parlor beau" is that sel
fish, egotistical individual who, being a man,
has as much variety and change as he wants,
and thinks himself sufficiently interesting to
entertain a girl without any assistance in the
way of theatres, paiies and drives, but
leaves the other fellows to amuse her iu that
A Live 31 an iu a Hearse.
A rare form of hospitality was offered and
accepted in Syracuse a few days ago An
undertaker returning from the cemetery over
took a decrepit German, who was toiling
along in manifest weariness, and offered him
a ride in the hearse. The tired pilgrim was
sissisted into the vehicle, s-trc tched himself at
length on the floor, the doors were shut and
the undertaker drove on. Of course a livt
passenger iu such a conveyance attracted a
throng. '.of people. "StopI the rum's uot
dead, cried a horror stricken wittpss, but
the heaire moved on to the Germans destina
tion, set him down in the middle of an excited
crowd aid drove rapidly away.

city of gara.', 'i'Lis famous region, where,
two or three- years ao. Lvrds of buiTalo. .an.
tciope and deer weie to bo necsi on every side--,
is now, to all ap.-ui anccs, stripped of its
game. For tho vi.tiiv distance from Living
ston to Man dun I only saw two or three
small bands of antelope and not a sign of. a
deer or buffalo. The fact is, the slaughter c f
buiTalo and door Las btn immense for the
past two years, and particularly of the fo.'
Bjsr. It is estimated that durintr the oast
winter tnere have bean l.uuo Hunters engaged
in the business of slaughtering buffalo along
the line of the Northern Pacific, between
Marxian and Livingston. An eagle-eyed
hunter got aboard of the train at Glendive,
and be gave mo the following Interesting de
tails as to the modus operandi in slaughter
ing herds of buffalo: In the first place, tba
experienced hunter uses tba Sharp rifle,
40-W caliber. "With this be can kill at 1,000
yards. When be sees a herd of buffalo be
usually slips up to within convenient range,
from J0 to S00 yards, and always select
a cow for bis first victim. He does this
for the reason that the cow is followed by
both her yearling and two-year-old calves,
and they will usually stand by ber
to the last. But under no cir-clrcumi-tanci-s
will the experienced bunUr
kill his buffalo outright. If be does, the herd
will stampede at oiu. Tlic policy is to wound
fatally, but so that tho animal will dash
around in a circle bafore falling. This it al
ways does when mortally wounded, and after
a few moments lies down. The remainder of
the herd are not alarmed at this, but con
tinue to gaze or look on dazed spectators of
the tragedy being enacted. After bis first
shot the hunter pauses until quiet is restored,
and again fires at another cow with similar
results. He always aims to put his ball just
behind the fore shoulder, which will cause
death in five minutes at furthest. "When the
cows have all been slain be turns his atten
tion to the calves, and lustly to the bulls.
The experienced hunter generally bags his en
tire herd, ' unless be is so unfortunate as to
drop his game immediately, when all the sur
vivors stampede at once. The buffalo does
not scare at the crack of a gun. Ho has de
cidedly more courage than discretion. It is
only when the crack is followed by an im
mediate fall that ho realizes its deadly nature
and takes alarm. Tho policy of lulling the
cows first and then the calves has resulted in
the almost utter extinction of the female
buffalo. Herds of melancholy bulls can still
occasionally be seen, sometimes in bands of
twenty or thirty, ami often without a single
cow.. Tha few remaining cows now have
their pick of lovers, and always choose from
the young blood of tho herd.
The buffalo bull after he passes bis fourth
year, loses his attractiveness to the opposite
sex, and tho aversion seems to lie mutual.
Gathering about him his bachelor friends of
equal age, ho sullenly retires into the wilder
ness and forever avoids the female members
of the herd, who mate with younger and
mora uxorious masculines. As I havo said,
tho bulls are aliout all that are now left of
the buffalo. They largely owe their safety
to the fact that their hides are less valuable
than those of tho cows, while at the same
time they aro far more difficult to kilL The
hide of the bull is only worth to tho hunter
from $1.80 to $2, whilo that of the cow
brings $3.25, and that of the 2-year-old calf
is worth from $1 to $1.50. But of late there
has sprung up quits a demand throughout
the east for tho hoad of tha buffalo bulL The
well-preserved head of an aged bull, docked
out with glass eyes and horns intact, will
readily sell for $5 in the eastern markets.
Consequently the buffalo-hunter of the fu
ture will wage a destrtctive war upon the
bull tribe, and these venerable relics of a by
gone era will also pass swiftly away.

Tittsburg Dispatch. - -
John Jarrett always took a decided interest
in what is known in amalgamated parlance
as "solitary cases." These are cases where
the firm or its manager picks out a man in a
mill and discharges him, bis offence usually
being his zealousness for his order. "Whilo
Mr. Jarrett was in Philadelphia one of these
cases was reported to headquarters from the
Bethlehem Iron company's works, at Bethle
hem, Pa. Mr. Jarrett was in the Philadel
phia office when the information came in. He
determined to investigate the matter in per
son. Beaching Bethlehem ho went quietly
among the men, incognito, and gathered after
much effort the true state of affairs. He ap
proached the manager, and after making a
few inquiries, he demanded that the man be
restored to his place. The manager looked,
at the little man dressed in sober blue
and said: "And who are youf
"I'm Jarrett," said the little president
of the big puddlers of America. He
did not say it loud nor with apparent pride.
The manager looked at him, the men took in
the situation and looked with admiration up
on the little labor champion. He did not talk
back, however, but went straightway and
called the company together and told them
that Jarrett was among the men and de
manded the restoration of the last man dis
charged. The big Bethlehem Iron company
were scared at the little Welshman's pres
ence and without further parley ordered a
shut down of a steel mill with an average
annual output of 135,000 tons. Thus the sit
uation rests, and Jarrett told the men to see
that the mill be kept shut until the discharged
man was restored. He then left as quietly as
be came, bis visit producing a good effect up
on t he men.
Congressman Blackburn Prophesies.
"I can name the next Democratic ticket.
Hoadly is going to carry Ohio by 20,000.
That will make him the Democratic candidate
for president, and Cleveland, of New York,
will bo tho Democratic vice presidential
nominee. - The Republicans will abandon
party organization and nominate David
Davis, and they will not carry seven states.
When it was suggested that Hoadly would
not carry Indiana, Blackburn said: "Would
you have the Democrats" go to Indiana and
pick up any on? of three men all three of
whom are fighting each other P When he
suggested Cleveland for the vice presidency,
some one said, "If Sam Cox is elected speaker
it would seem that he would bo the strongest
man for vice president." Blackburn replied:
"There is only one trouble about Cox; he
never plays for high enough stakes. If be
had played for tho p. t.-Mency he might have
amounted to something. He ran for speaker
once, and had four votes."

One of I'arson Brown low Kceentrl
At the mouth of the Cumber kind river in

In the days of her prosperity Parson Brown
low, the eccentric preacher and editor of the
Knoxvlllo, (Tenn-V Whig, accepted an invi
tation to go down to rtmfthland and assist at
a Methodist revival. Tb church being in an
incomplete condition and the pulpit being
filled with bundles of laths, Parson Brownlow
took his seat in the altar, where ba sat pick
ing bis teeth and looking at the congregation,
previous to the morning service. After sing
ing and prayer be announced that he bad
been making a study of the congregation and
thought a temperance lecture would be more
appropriate than a sermon. At this an
nouncement a queer old specimen of humanity,
known as "Live-forever," Jones, jumped up
from a front seat and exclaimed: t
"I came to hear preaching, sir, not to listen
to your experience-. YouTl please excuse me
if Heave." ; ,'',,
."Certainly, sir, you are excused," said
Brownlow, "and now, brethren," he contin
ued, as "Live-forever" inarched out, "as there
is no further necessity for the temperance
lecture I will preach," and a very able ser
mon was the result.
At tho evening service Brother "Live-forever"
Jones was in bis customary seat at the
front, holding in his hand a lath which bo bad
taken from the pulpit at he came in. - During
tho excitement of the revival songs and
prayers another member of tho church
named Jones, wai called upon to pray, to
whioh Brother "Live-forever" - readily re
sponded, and be vigorously accented bis peti
tion to the throne of grace by whacking the
pew with the lath. After the violent -nocking
at the door of grace a song followed, and
then Parson Brownlow led in prayer, at the
beginning of which bo was seen to secure a
half dozen laths from the pulpit, and as he
warmed up in the prayer it was noticed that
he kept edging along toward Brother "Live
forever." At last ho got within striking
reach and began to emphasize his petition by
vigorous whacks of the laths over the head
and shoulders of Brother Jones, while tho
congregation shouted amen and tho proces
sion of Brother "Live-forever" and Parson
Brownlow moved toward the door. The
praj'er earnestly ascended and the latlis de
scended until "Live-forever" had pafely
escaped to the street minus bis hat. Then
the prayer ended, and the congregation real
ized that they hail experienced and enjoyed
another of Parson Brownlow's eccentricitiea.
Winked at Him.

after Miller died, old Dick came walking up
the street one day to where there were several
of his old acquaintances. As they stood in

wliat was new in the world.
"Oh," said Dick, "nothing. I have just
met old Bill Miller and had a talk with

membered that Dick was a believer in trans

asked old Dick where he had seen old Bill.
" 'Right down street. He has come back;
is a Tbus horse; is standing right down there

standing right down there, and there is just

'.Blessed it 1 don t give it up!" said a
western man who was wandering up and
down tho avenues ot Ocean Grove, N. J.f
mopping his brow with a large bandanna.
Deep trouble was outlined on his face. "Yes,
I'm lost!" he exclaimed to a bystander. "I
came up from Philadelphia this morning with
my wife, and took rooms at the North Pole
house. I went to take a walk, and have been
three hours trying to find my way back. I've

What puzzles me is that everybody tells me
that Ocean Grove has no hotel named North
