Many marry to spile someone else,

They Met Again.— A Love Story 

They stood together under the wav-

banks of a singing brook one fair,

joy was in her fair young face — the 
joy that comes to a maiden loving and 
beloved. She lo  kcd up into his hand

Stop My Paper. 

e occasionally meet a man in this 
world who is under the impression 
f he "stops his paper" he will 
"get even" with the editor for 
supposed injury — maybe it is 
a gentle request for subscriptions 

Some business men, or rather men 
some business, are laboring under 
the same apparition. \\ hy, don't 
these blissful fellows know that when 
his paper, it causes no 
commotion with the editor? He is 
used 10 it. It is only a proof that his 
paper is appreciated. 

Aside from lh.it, an editor is very 
much like an ordinary man. He eats, 
he drinks, he wears clothes, {when he 
get them; they may not W the I'm 
but he wears Ihem all the same) 
wears a hat, he eats vegetables, 
eats bread, eats meat, and all olher 
indelicacies" of the seas  

No, the editor does not

.Ily speaking, he is a man 
other man; has feelings

Presentiments. 

A presentiment is an impression on 
the mind that something is going to 
take place, and usually such is the case; 
perhaps we can say without ex- 
aggeration, that something always 
does occur, after a presentiment is 
formed; if such were not the fact, we 
cannot conjecture what would become 
of everybody. Just imagine for a mo 
ment that something did not take place 
in such a large world as this! We 
are told of a young lady at Kinder 
hook who was visited by an apparition 
two years ago, at dead hour of the 
ight, which announced

An almost infallible cure for a pre-

we do not patronize physic, except by- 
proxy. The reason we give medicine 
at all is that people are always in a

Whether justly or unjustly, for

that Senator Heck is eminently selfish

"Michael Strogoff," a spcctacula- 
play which is now causing t'ae country 
to groan, may be a fine affair, but still 
there is a lack of appropriativeness 
about it. It is necessary, in the play, 
to have a Russian army, yet we do not 
believe that the Russian army can be 
appropriately represented by two 
tramps and a lame negro; and again, 
a well equipped army should not be 
armed with two rusty muskets and a 
horse pistol. There is something grand 
a military band, yet a military 
band should consist of something more 
than a battered tuba, a split flageolet, a 
complaining flute, and an ill-used bass 
drum. We have no desire to injure 
the prospects of the "Strogoff" com- 
pany, for we acknowledge that its

Another Confederate War-Hor«e. 

Mr Palmer Sheldon, postmaster at 
Ames, Iowa, says: "It is a mistake to 
say that Stonewall Jackson's old sorrel, 
recently dead, was the sole surviver 
among horses of the tebellion, for Capt. 
J Ri sh Lincoln, professor of Military 
Tactics at State Agricultural College, 
his with him the horse he rode during 
the rebellion in the First Maryland 
Confederate Cavalry, wherein h» 
served as Captain. The old horse 
said to be a thoroughbred. He is dark 
brown, about fifteen hands high. He 
is in good health, and as fat and sleek 
as a colt The Captain rides him to 
all the State encampments and re- 
unions, and when he takes part in 
shim battles the horse seems to enjoy 
the excitement, f.r he is right on his 

:ttle as soon as the firing begins."
