IT appears that Miss Cleveland's lit
erary attainments do not cause her to
let house-work "go to the dogs , " a
some blue stockings are said to do. A
short time since she concluded tha
the White House needed cleaningtha
necessary operation having been skip
ped last spring owing to a rush o
company. So she astonished the ladiei
of Washington by appearing one day
out on the lawn in a poke bonnet am
calico dress , and seated on a camp
stool , alternately chewed gum anc
scolded the man who beat the carpets
and the hired girls who dusted the
furniture and bric-a-brac. Then she
went indoors and superintended the
cleaning of the wood work , etc. , anc
naturally a first-class job was the re
sult. Peck's Sun.
GOING UP SALT RIVER The origin
of the common phrase * 'up Salt river'
receives quite an ingenious explana
tion in the current number of the
Magazine of American History. Sal
river , geographically speaking , is i
tributary of the Ohio , having its source
in Kentucky , and is a very crookec
stream and difficult of navigation. In
the early days of Ohio arid Kentucky
it was a stronghold of a band of river
pirates who were in the habit of prey
ing on the commerce of the Ohio , anc
rowing their plunder up Salt river
where it was never recovered. Ilence
it came to be said of anything that was
irrevocably lost , "it's rowed up Sail
river , " and by an easy and natura
transition the phrase came to be ap
plied to unsuccessful candidates for
BEING weary for a moment , he lay
down by the wayside , and using hii
burden for a pillow , fell into tha
dreamless sleep that kisses down his
eyelids still. While yet in love witl
life and raptured with the world , he
passed to silence and pathetic dust
Yet , after all , it may be best , just h
the happiest , sunniest hour of all the
voyage , while eager winds are kissing
every sail , to dash against the unseen
rock , and in an instant hear the bil
lows roar above a sunken .ship. For
whether in mid sea or among the
breakers of the farther shore , a wreck
at last must mark the end of. each anc
all. And every life , no matter if it
every hour is rich with love , and ev
ery moment jeweled with a joy , will
at its close , become a tragedy as sat
and deep and dark as can be woven o
the warp and woof of the mystery anc
death. R. GIhgersoll. .
THE sultan to the new minister :
"Well , Sunset , you've got here at last.
By the beard of the Prophet , I'm glad
to see you. What is the state of the
thermometer in the U. States , Sam ? "
Mr. Cox : "Ab. , as Mr. Beecher once
remarked , its blanked hot. I think
th'at it must be about 704 in New
York. Do the flies bother you much
this Ab ? " Sultan "Well
year , : , no ,
Sam , it's not the flies. It's money mat
ters that worry me. I s'pose you
know Lew Wallace ? Well I have no
further use for Lew. I'm glad he's
ailed. Why , what do you think ?
He got every lady in the harem to
subscribe for 'Ben Hur. ' Darn my
whiskers if I aint ruined. " Mr. Cox :
C0mdeed , then I'm glad Mr. Wallace
has Ben Hurried off to his native home
so soon ! ! ! " [ The sultan faints , and is
promptly carried off to the cooler by
'aithful slaves , who rush in. Mr. Cox ,
filled with remorse , resolves that here
after he will feed Abdul nothing but
hestnuts.J Courier Journal.
THE two following days were occu
pied in going through the necessary
forms of .parole , and our command re
mained in bivouac and on Wednesday
morning , leaving our muskets stacked
n the field , we disbanded. Those go
ng in the same , direction formed
groups , the officers retaining side-
rms and accoutrements , and after a
general hand shaking and good-bye ,
each group took its own way home-
ivard. As I passed the farm house of
, he surrender , we stopped to take
arewell look. Groups of men were
here , with ax and saw and spade.
The apple tree .was down by the roots ,
and men were cutting and digging
, nd scrambling for a remnant as a
ouvenir. This was the appletree of
Appomattox , and is no myth. It is
rue that Gen. Grant never met Gen.
ice under any apple tree. They met
n a private house some distance away ,
ut the surrender was made from un-
er that tree in writing. Cor. New

As the watermelon season approaches
apace , the following instruction from
the Atlantic Constitution , good author
ity on the subject , might be of interest :
Very few people know how to cat a
watermelon , just as not one man in ten
thousand knows how to eat an orange.
To he properly enjoyed the perfect wa
termelon should be pounced upon in the
patch just after sun up. It should he
carefully selected. In response to an
eager thump there should follow a dead
and mealy sound , and the melon should
weigh not less than twenty-five pounds.
After it is pulled itshould be split from
end to end with a short bladed pocket
knife , so that in tearing it open the
glowing and juicy heart , bursting loose
from its confinement , should find lodge
ment on one side only. At this point
the knife is to he flung away. For a
moment the eye should be allowed to
feast itself on the vision thus suddenly
brought to view , then the heart should
be scooped out with the hand and its
nectarious meat thrust upon the hot and
thirsty palate. There ought to be some
thing savage in the enjoyment of a wa
termelon ; it ought to he crushed and
swallowed with avidity. The man who
knows how to enjoy one will come away
from the fray with the sweets in his
beard , in his hair , and on. his clothes.
WHAT you don't know about men
often makes them respectable.
IF anger is not restrained , it is fre
quently more hateful to us than the
injury that provokes it. Seneca.
