Sha thankwl mo wltli n gracious smile.

It was so fiinnll , t'w.ts not worth while ,
To let me take It.
Again I ottered ns before ,
Of that slight burden to relieve her ,

'Twotild really grieve her.

The tliln was small nnu neatly eoidcd ,
And so nlonir our way wo went
To whore shu boarded.
Hut when upon the stoop she stood ,
And ere our last' adieus were uttered ,
She eyed mo In a roguish mood ,
And softly muttered.
As swung tno door to let her through ,
And left me there nil unresisting :
" 1 don't think very much ot you

Qnoen of Iloumanln.
Ne\v York Mnil and Express : Among
tUo presents which Emperor William received
ceivod on liis birthday ono of the most
remarkable ones was a poem by the queen
of Houmanlii. In a hundred short verses
Carman Sylva had described the chief
incidents of the soldier's lifetime , She
had , moreover , copied it out herself in
lior own hand on white parchment ,
beautifully ornamented by corn-flowers.
When there was no kingdom of Uomania
in existence she had laughingly said : "I
do not want to marry unless I can bo
queen of Houmanla"andasso of ton happens -
pens , the caroless.thoughts of youth found
their accomplishment. Kunninp down
the palace stairs at Berlin ono day her
foot slipped , and she would probablv have
boon killed but for 1'rinco Charles , of
Hohenzollorn. who saw hot danger and
caught her in his outstretched arms.
When lloumania chose him for ruler ho
clamed the princess for his bride. Dur
ing the Uttsso-Turkish war she wore the
uniform of the Hed Cross , and as a nurse
helped to soften and asBiweo the milter
ings which war inevitably urines in its
train. At the close of the struggle Plevna
had given a royal throne to the prince
and princess , and their crowns were
made out of cannon captured from the
cneniy. _
j Girls of Honduras.
Atlanta Constitution : On the outside
of the windows are heavy iron bars ,
which have a decidedly prison-liko ap
pcarancc. These servo a dual purpose
licsidcs being a protection in times of
revolution , they are also a protection to
tbo Bcnontas.
"All the lovemaking is done through
-these bars , as the young ladies are very
closely guarded in Honduras. They are
never seen alone , always being in charge
of some elderly chaperone. "
"Aro the girls pretty ? "
"Some of them are , but I don't think
they compare to our American girls.
They are of Spanish descent and have
regular features. Most of them are bru
nottcs. "
"How about the natives , the Indians ? "
"Tho natives are brown-skinned people
with coarse , dark hair and with bettor
features than Ethiopians. The men are
bis , strong follows , rather industrious as a
class , turning their attention to mining
and mechanical work. By industrious , !
lucanthat they work hard enough to
earn a living , but as they can live on 1 ?
cents a day that does not mean very stu-
vendous labor. The climate is delight
ful , enabling them to sleep out of doors
If necessary , and they livd on rice , dried
beans and corn bread. "
Woman In Wall Street.
Eleanor Kirk In Lawrcnco ( Mass. )
American : Thcro was a nice little tilt
in Wall street a few days ago between a
man and his wito , both speculators , who
wore unfortunate enough to have the
name initials. Mrs. E. G. 11. bought some
stock unbeknown to her lord uniimastor ,
but the fact was divulged by a brother
broker. Thinking to help his wife out of
n bad scrape , the gentleman ordered the
account to bo closed by moans of a tolo-
grniu signed E. G. B. The lady ,
cecdingly perspicacious in the matter of
speculation , and who had received some
Valuable" "points" to sustain her rosolu
tlon to hold on , was naturally much dis <
turbcd to receive a notification of closing
from her broker , and immediately ad
vanced upon the bulls1 stronghold.
f The husband and wife met , Greek and
Greek sure enough. The upshot of the
nfl'air was that my lady lost $100 by her
husband's interference , But she im
ft- mediately reinvested and sailed away
I ran * " ' with pennants Hying , having warned
her broker to nay no attention to docu
ments not bearing the prolix Mrs. to the
signature. The mania for speculation
scorns to be increasing among women. A
member of the stock exchange told the
writer that his lady customers were far
* less nervous than men , and while they
A were more cautious about largo invest
ments , they wore seldom troublesome ,
and as n rule their judgment seemed su
perior to that of men.

Women who Get Out a Newspaper.
Park Region Pioneer : Let it co out to
the world just as far as our resources can
send it , that every stroke of work ( with
n slight exception to bo named ) done in
the i'ioncor ollicc last week was done by
f ur women folk ? , namply , Mrs. Hathbun ,
her sister. Mrs. llowo , and the Misses
Mabel and Hirdio Hathbun. The per
formances including Job work on both
presses , the working ofr and rolling for
the paper , the lifting and cleaning of the
forms , otc. The slight exception referred
to was the working of ono copy of the
paper ( for himself ) by Will Day. Wo be-
licvo that no ono will venture to charge
that any of the work was in oll'ect inferior
to the average of country printing ollice.s ,
and , indeed , we think It even nicer in
porno particulars.

asked her how 3. ho , was getting along any
way. She replied that she was getting
along pretty well for an unprotected female -
male of twenty-seven summers. By the
way , any young woman who confesses to
twonty-sovcn birthdays is uapablo of
tolling the truth in otlior directions. Being -
ing further pressed , or rather questioned ,
she said that she had no difliculty in can-
vassinc with men of middle and elderly
age. They generally wore content to
talk straight ousincss. "But how do you
succeed with young fellows who
talk love and nonsense to you. " "Ah ! 1
have a heart ; and when I approach ono
of those susceptible youngsters I put it
on ico. " It was not necessary to ask
whether eho over put her tongue on ico.
Honorific n Woman With Children.
Chicago Journal : When Mmo. do Stael
asked the Emperor Napoleon what kind
of woman ho considered most valuable
to the empire , the little corporal wounded
the sensitive feelings of that distin
guishcd personage by sententiously replying -
plying : "The woman who has the most
children. " Thn spirit which prompted
such a reply has evidently found temporary
ary lodgment in th breast of an Illinois
Central railroad surburban conductor.
The other day , while I was coming into
the city on that thoroughfare , an honest-
looking woman boarded the train at
Forty-third street with seven small chil
dren of various ages. When the conduc
tor , clad in n new suit of blue , mailo resplendent -
splendent with brass buttons , sternly de
manded her ticket , u blush of coufusiqn
swept over lior honest countenance ns
she fumbled vainly m her pocket for her
nurse , which she had left at homo "I
haven't any ticket , sir , " she meekly re
marked , the look of confusion growing
deeper as she observed the glances of the
passengers ; "I loft it homo. " The con
ductor glanced along the row of chubby-
faced boys by her side ana said : "Are
.you the mother of tlioso seven children ? '
"Yes. sir , " she replied. "Well , " contin
ued the conductor , "any woman who has
done ns much for her country as that can
ride on my train for nothing. " And the
conductor loft the car , followed by the
applause of the passengers.
The Apple of Our Eye.
Now York Graphic : And why let me
ask , should a woman take it so seriously
to heart if her brain do weigh live ounces
loss than a man's ? So do her fectl So
do her hands ! Bnt if she makes it up in
her heart nobody thinks the worst of her
for it. Really , I think it is selfish of a
woman to want the best and moat of
everything. She has the majority of the
good looks in the world , and of the good
times , too , I will warrant ; and it is quite
her own fault if she does not get the ma
jority of all the love. She has the pretti
est clothes and she gets thn most candy ,
and she has rot'Aa and violets hcapea
upon her from year's end to year's cud

Ijlko Three Rnsos on a Stem.
Torrington ( Conn. ) Register : There
was born in Foshon , on March 20 , 1789 , a
triplet of girls who made ono of the most
remarkable records known. They wcro
SibylS\rah : and Susan Hurlburt.childrcn
of Gideon and Ann ( Bench ) llurlburt.
For the great period of eighty-seven
years this triplet remained unbroken.
Sibyl dying first at that ace , in Juno , 1875.
Her wedded name was Luddington. In
October of the next year Susan ( Mrs.
Grinucll ) died at the ago of eighty-eight.
Sarah lived to the ago of ninety-live ,
dying on January 11,1833. Hnr wedded
name was Bushnell. These sisters looked
so much alike , particularly Mrs. Grmnoll
and Mrs. Bushnoll , that up to seventy-
five or eighty years of age it was dilUcult
for the most intimate friends to toll them
apart ; oven then they would mistake ono
another among themselves.

Blips up once in itwhilo. Ho took a walk
around SpringUcM ono day last week. A
buxom young lady , holding a baby in
her arms , was leaning over the gate in
front of a largo , flno looklng residence.
"What a lovelychild , " exclaimed Bon-
ntor Sherman , "pray , may I kiss It ? "
"Certainly , " wild-the buxom young
lady , and toe eminent Ohloan gave tut
baby n smack that made it put out Its
under lip and wrinkle iti red face all up
for n howl.
"That's as line a child Rs I over saw ,
madam ! I'll warrant you that it's the
picture of its futhcrl" said the senator.
"In fact , thu child interests mo so much
that I'd like to have its father call on tno

A Widespread Boom.
Dakota Boll : "I thought you wcro
having a boom hero , " said a stranger to a
man in a Dakota town.
"Wo arc having a boom. "
"It doesn't look much that way. "
"Wo'ro having ono , just the same. Lo
cal parties luivo been taking eastern
speculators out to look at lots in thu su
burbs over iinco the 1st of April. Just
wait till they begin to get back and vou'll
sco a boom.1
"Till they begin to get back ? Why
aren't they back by ihls time ? "
"Why , the truth is , stranger , the lots
tire so thundering far out that they
haven't had time yet. "
Two Opinions.
Dakota Boll : Mr. Julius I'lugoff , a
democrat of Gosh City , this territory.was
recently appointed to the ollico of clerk
of the district court. Of the appoint
ment , the Gosh City People's Palladium ,
a democratic paper , says :
"Tho appointment of Colonel Julius
PlugolV. of this city , to the honorable
ofllco of clerk of the district court gives
universal satisfaction. Though Colonel
Plugofl'is comparatively a young man ,
and recently came to Dakoto , it is a re
cognition of the young democracy in the
territory , and declares that the hereto
fore accepted belief that a man
to obtain ollico in Dakoto must
have moved here before the war and slept
uudor a gun-wood and eaten jerked buf
falo meat the first ton years , is dead and
burled beyond the hope of resurrection.
Give the young and vigorous a chance ;
down with the old moss-grown aud driv
eling one-horso politicians whose only
recommendation is that they wcro com
pelled to leave their homes in the cast
twenty-live years ugol"
In Its issue of the same date the Gosh
City Walloper , nlso democratic , prints
the following :
"Julo Plugoir , the dude politician of
this city , has been appointed clerk of the
district court. What is the party coming
to in this tcrritohy ? That man PlugolV is
n tenderfoot arm a carpetbagger. Hu
has not been in Dakota long enough to
know a wheat field from n jackpot. Ho
would still have been back in Wiggle-
ville , Del. , blacking boots if ho had not
first got an appointment in the territory.
Ho is no moro cnitlcd to the ollico
than the man in the moon. Matters have
como to a pretty pass if the old wheel-
horses of the party , those who came hero
in the curly day , endured the hardships
of the pioneer's life.settlcd in the wilder
ness and made it blossom as the rose and
wore democrats when it meant scorn and
derision and no hope of ollico ; if tlicso ,
wo say. nro to bo ignored for such im
portations from the olleto cast as Julo
Plugoir. "
