The girl with the blue mnckintosh was sitting pensively in the corner of a Niag ara street car late one afternoon, says the Buffalo Express. At the square a girl with a puffed sleeved coat got on, and the girl with the blue mackintosh wel comed her effusively. “Where have you been?" asked the girl with the puffed sleeves. “To u funeral,” replied the girl with the blue mackintosh. “I didn't know anybody was dead.” “\obody is. That is, nobody who is anybody to us, but Charley and I went to a funeral just the same.” “Tell me," said the girl with the puff- ck sleeves imperatively. The girl in blue mackintosh snuggled up to her companion and said: “You know, since papa found out that Charley only gets 810 a week be won't allow me to have anything more to do with him, but I don't intend to give him up just because papa says so. He and I have been meeting eaob other aiVernoons for a month and taking lovely long walks on the side streets. “We took a walk this afternoon and we went on a lot of little streets over on the west side. We were strolling along by a house that had a lot of carriages standing in front, when Charley caught sight of papa coming round tho corner in a buggy. He is awfully smart, you know, and he didn't propose to get caught, so be just pulled me into one of the car- risges, and we sat there until papa got by. Before we thought it safe to get out the funeral services were over and some body got up on the carriage and started, off. “ We stayed in and were drivun to the cemetery and played as mourners. Then the man drove us back to town and we had a lovely time. It was so much bet ter than walking, for he could put his arm around me, and there wasn't any chance of anyone hearing what we said. I never had a nicer afternoon. “Whose funeral was it?" asked the girl in the puffed sleeves. “Oh,” said the girl with the blue mack intosh, “I haven't any idea, but it was perfectly lovely, and I'm awfully obliged to the corpse.” FUOOBED HIM. The merchants who sell dry goods and what not in the country stores have some odd experiences. One of them, a live fellow, was buying stock in Richmond and he told a good many stories of the flow of trade up there. “A bright, healthy and somewhat fleshy woman came into my store t’other day,” he ‘ said, “and asked for garter elastic. ‘How much ?’ I asked. ‘How much will it take ?’ says she. I was floored. I didn’t know what to say to get out of the dilemma. I had to say something in a hurry, and blurted out: ‘How should I know ?’ ‘Why, to be sure,’ says she, and I'll be banged if she didn’t step to the rear and measure right there, and she bought a yard and a quarter.”—Richmond State. IN GLASS. That's the way Dr. Pierccs Pleasant Pellets come. And it’s a more impor tant point than you think. It keeps them always fresh and reliable, unlike the ordinary pills in cheofki wooden or pasteboard boxes. They’re put up in a better way, and tbey act in a better >»ay, than the huge old fashioned pills. No griping, no violence, no reaction afterward that sometimes leaves you worse off than before. In that way they cure perma nently. Siok headache, bilious headache, constipation, indig’st!on, billious attacks, and all derangements of the liver atonaoh and bowels, are prevented, relieved and ouied. They’re tiny, sugar coated granuals, a compound of refined and vegetable extracts—the smallest in size, the easiest to take, and the cheapest pill yon fhr they’re t^iraateed tn give eatit- ftetiub, ut yuur laoD^ is reiurned.

A learned German who has devoted himself to the study of physiology, an thropology, and allied sciences, makes tho rather startling assertion that mustaches are becoming commoner among the wo men of the present day than in the past. He tells us that in Constantinople among the unveiled women that are to be met with one out of ten possesses an unmis takable covering of down on the upper lip. In the capital of Spain, again, the proportion of ladies with this masculine characteristic is said to be quite equal to that observable in the Golden Horn. An American medical man states that in Philadelphia fully 3 per cent, of the adult fair sex are similarly adorned, and probably the proportion would be still larger, but that many women take the trouble to eradicate theunwelcomegrowth by the application of debilatory prepara tions. Is this increase in the number of women with hair on their faces to be regarded as a sign that the human race is improving? Very few men, at all events, will be disposed to consider that « mustache adds to the charms of the opposite sex. En glishmen, indeed, only a generation ago, had such a detestation oi mustaches and beards that the practice of shaving all hair off the face down to tbeir mutton- chop whiskers was all but universal. From one extreme our clean-shaven fathers plunged into the other, and beards and mustaches rapidly became tho fashion. The fashion has of late years again been modified. Beards are less common, but the mustacho is cultivated in England as widely as on the continent. But why should the fair sex be visited by this infliction? Some writers on ethnology bold that the higher races of mankind are always the harrier, and Mr. Mott thinks that in a few centuries men and women will all be clothed with hair. But we do not believe Mr. Mott, and we certainly should not care to live to see the day of bearded beauty.—London Standard. CHBWINC GUM IN FBVEH8. “The salivary glands play quite an important part in continued fevers, yet tbey are not considered in the treatment of the case. “One of the first and most important restrictions in the patient’s dietary is to drop all solid fuod from the list at the physician’s first request, and just then the salivary glands begin to lapse into a torpid condition which.very often results in an inflammation, and, finally suppuration, and that disagreeable dryness of tongue and fauces so uncomfortable to the patient. “For the relief of this trouble 1 have found nothing of so much importance as some nice form of aromatic chewing gum, which relieves the thirst and dry mouth, improves the appetite and digestion, and restrains nausea, if any.”—Medical lle- cird. SEVEKAL COMPARISONS. “Money is like women in one respect,” said Mr. Darley to his wife. “That's so,” she replied. “It’s a good thing to have about the house." “That wasn’t the resemblance I had in mind,” Mr, Darley went on. “I suppose not.” “No; money is like women because money talks.” “Well, money has some well known masculine chaiaeteristict, too, retorted Mrs. Darley. “It gets tight. More than that, it requires the same remedy as its human exempUr in that ease." “Aod what is that?” “The gold cure.”—Puck.

SUBSCRIBE AT ONCE. THE FAMILY THAT DON T TAKE NEWS PAPERS. R. P. Hackney, one of the pupils at the Durham Male Academy, made a speech at the Academy about a month ago, and selected for his subject the following: “The man that don’t take newspapers was in town the other day. He brought his family in an ox wagon. He still believed that Milliard Fillmore was President, and wanted to know if the “Kamchatkians” had taken Cuba, and if so, where they had taken it. He had sold his pork for six cents, when he might have got ten. One of his boys went to a blacksmith shop to be meas ured for a pair of shoes and another mistook tho market house for a church. He hung his h»t on a meet book, and patiently waited one hour for “meeting” to begiu. One of the girls took a lot of “seed onions” to the postoffice to trade off for a letter. She had a baby which she carried in a “sugar trough,” stopping occasionally to rock it on the sidewalk; when it cricd she filled its mouth with a a cotton handkerchief, and sung “Barbara Allen.” The oldest boy lad sold two “coon skins,” and was on a bust. When last seen, he had called for a ‘sody and water,’ and stood soaking ginger bread in It, and making wry faces. The shop keeper mistaking his meaning had given him a mixture of sal soda and water, and it tasted strongly of soap. But he'd “beam tell of sody water,” and was bound to give it a fair trial “puke ur no puke.” The old man had, a tea kettle he wanted “fixed up” and he carried it to the millioner shop. . The clerk thought he was crazy, but noticing the hole in tho kettle, politely told him that Charley Taylor could mend it for him. He then took an o!d plough to the jew eler's to have it “pinted aod sharpened.” We told the old fellow he ought to read papers, but he would not listen to it. He was opposed to “internal improvements,” and he thought “larnin” was a wicked invention. HE WAS A COMFORTER. It was in an English hospital. The chaplain was making his morning rounds when he met a porter, “How's Robinson, this morning ?” he asked, “Ee's dead, sor,” answered the porter. “Dead I” “Yes, sor,” “But why didn’t you call me ? I might have been able to comfort the poor fellow a little in his last moments, “Hi comforted ’im myself, sor,” “You ? Indeed. And what did you say to comfort him ?" ' Hi said to 'im, ‘llobiosoo, Hisnppoce you know you're very siok ?' “ ‘Yes,’ says ’ee,” “ ‘Robinson, Hi suppose you know you can't last long ?” “ ‘Yes,’ says ’ee,” “ ‘Robinson, Hi suppose you know you’ve been werry wicked ?” “ ‘Yes,’ says ’ee.” “ ‘Robinson, Hi suppose you know yon can't go to heaven 7” “ ‘Yes,’ says ’ee.” “ ‘Well, Robinson,’ snys Hi, ‘you ought to be werry thankful that there’s a place provided for you fellows to go to.’ “ ‘Yes,’ says ’ee.” “An’ then 'ee tvras ’is face to the wall an’ died Titbout even thanking me for comforting ’ii«."

Amid all the grandeur of tho Colum bian celebration, religion is destined to play a mighty part, and Chicago is to be the seat of the first religious gathering of its kind known to history. Considering tho time, place, and occasion it is much to be deplored that the coming parlia ments of religions is not better under stood than it is. But some people will not see anything in ita right light, there by justifying tho time-worn saying that there are none so blind as those who won't see. A brief explantion, then, of the aims and purposes of the religious congresses of the World's Fair will no doubt bo acceptable to many as a mean.t of acquainting themselves with a move ment which promises to be the most phe nomenal event in modern history. When tho Columbian Exposition wns first mooted, it thought that a valualn- accessory would be the holding of various congresses for the consideration of those questions which were of the greatest im portance to the welfare of the whole hu man family. And of all the congressei- which will meet in their turn, none are o such universal interest as those which will treat of religion. Nearly all of the great church bodies in the United States have on foot arrangements for the hold ing of individual denominational gather ings, and the whole series will culminate in a world's parliament of religions, to which have Leen invited representatives of the great historic faiths of the world. For this occasion Christianity—the broad minded and liberal Christianity of Amer ica—will assume the part of hostess, and under her patronago will bo welcomed with open arms those who worship at the shrine o f Buddab, Mahomet, or any sect known to history. While Christianity assumes for the time being this all important and very human roll, it is not to be supposed thai she abates one jot of her own faith in Christ. Neither is it to be supposed that because she consents to sit in relig ious equality with the representative of other faiths that her own purity is be smirched. Not so, for if Christianity cannot withstand the searchlight of com parison wherein lies the claim for her ever repeated superiority. This parlia ment, then, is for the purpose of discuss ing in a friendly spirit that questions which have particular reference to man’s welfare here upon earth, aud his condi tion in the great hereafter. There is plenty of authority for such a gathering, for man is but man, and God is God, whether He be so styled by one name or by a hundred. The governing body of the parliament is a general committee comprising the representatives of the worshipping bodies in Chicago, In connection with the parliament of religions, and a part of it, will be the presentation by the various Chris'tian and other denominations of their history, doc trine, outlook, ctc. The programme for the parliament is still in a tentative form, and must remain so until it is definitely known what part will bo taken by the representatives of the non-Chrisliun faiths, many of whom are purposely making this visit to Chica go to attend the parliament. ■0*8 IM) all sick watcbea to OmADY’a HoROLoaiOAL Samitabiitm, Halifax, N.

THE building IN WHICH LINCOLN WAS SHOT FALLS IN RUINS. With a crash and grinding roar a section of three floors of tho old Ford's Theatre building, at Wasbington, occupied by QUO clerks of the record and pension division of the War Department, fell through to the cellar at 9:40 o'clock last Friday morning, carrying down to a horrible death over a score of men, and maiming or otherwise injuring at least seventy-five more. Careless excavating under the insecure foundations of tho old building was the immediate cause of the catastrophe. By a strange coincidence this frightful disaster in the building where John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln occurred on the day and at tho hour when the friends of the dead tragedian, Edwin Booth, were bearing his body to its last resting place. One hundred and fifty clerks occupied the sections of the three floors that gave way. They were busily engaged with their daily tasks when without warning the crash came. Tho third floor fell to the second, the combined weight of the two carried way the first, and the whole mass thundered down into the excavation that had undermined the building. The tremendous shock was felt for blocks around, and in less than a minute the street in front of the building was filled with horrified men and women, who, though unable to appreciate the extent of the disaster, knew by the cries of the injured and the great clouds of dust that burst from the windows that there had been a frightful accident. The work of rescue began almost before the people outside the building understood what had happened. Indeed, tho clerks who occu pied the sections of the fioor that still remained in place ran to the aid of their comrades, without regard to tho imminent danger of being buried beneath the tottering walls that threatened to fall at tho slightest shock. The firemen, the police and volunteer workers quickly burst in the doors and windows and came to their assistance. The work of rescue was speedily systematized and all day long they toiled in the stifling atmosphere, pulling away the debris and tenderly carrying out the dead and injured. Repeatedly, within the past ten years, Congress has been urged to come to the relief of the 500 hard working clerks confined in a space inadequate for half that number, and just such a catastrophe as that has been prophesied repeatedly, Tho extent to which the almost price less records of the War Department have suffered cannot now be estimated. Com pared with the awful loss of life this matter seems of little moment. Yet it may involve the providing of thousands of pensions due deserving veterans whose service and disabililies cannot otherwise be shown. The total casualties as near as can he ascertained arc i.s follows: Twenty-one dead bodies are at the morgue and the o'nergency hospital. Four more persons are repotted dead, whose names were probably confused with those of tho victims or their identity confused with some of the bodies through physical re semblance. Two persons whose names were included in the earlier list of victims taken from the ruins escaped uninjured. The number of injured reported is about fifty but many others who were able to proceed to their home were hurt more or less badly. Years of study, experiment and scien tific investigation have given the world Hill's Chloride of Gold Tablets, the only sure cure for the tobacco habit known.. They have proven a great blessing to the thousands who have found health and new life through them, and the testimo nials received Wathe the sentiments of grateful thanks.
