If the goodness and purity of anything is to be judged

A portion of tho Freshio Howl Club happened to bo go
iug home over the samo road, vacation, and amused
those on the train by singing some of their so called
"nigger" songs. One old lady more especially, who was
sitting in close proximity, was so highly gratified with

A Fresh ie was taking a stroll u few days ago in the
south part of tlio city, when an ugly cur ran out and
seized him by tho north side of his coal, that ho might
