Somebody wi lies about "A Woman's Veil' in tho lloslou 0.t(fr; -nud here nro half a dozen of his verses : II was full many a seaBon since, When I was summering tit Capo May, They had a foolish fashion then Mayhap they have tho unmo lo-day--Thnl ovory lady In the dance, If pleased with any, should not fall I'nto tho pattucr she preferred To glvo her veil. And there was one 1 mind mo of, Whoso name-well, nover mind her name i Uclcn or Allco, Wanchc, or Maude, To yon who rend will bo tho same. Hut that old fa'ihlou of tho veils Haply lecalls tho past, and stirs Memotlis that cluster round tho night She gave mo hers, She flushed, poor child, In giving It, And I, lo, foil my brow grow warm, As liuuhingtyi with lingers dolt, Sho knot let it about my arm And thounh tho color on her chccl; Was IlkH thoHght In morning skies, I thought I saw a ko'.liil' dawn Within her eyes, The daheo was over and we sliolled Out from tbnliall-rooin'sglllterln'ipri s-, To meet tlii brcczo that many armed Clasped each ono lu cool carom ; Aud faunterlng ou wo reached tho sea Tlio far wall?, music's cadeneo sweet, Mixed with the sound ol waves that died About oui leet. Wo talked ol what I now forget, Hut carelessly, or seeming so, Next day I was to leave, but then In town wo'd meet again, you know, Ah,woll-n-dayl tho gods dispose, And ruluod hopes nro worso than vain i Sho laughed good-by I never saw Her faco airatu. Life's sad pitrzle, audom hoaits Grow faint In searching for tho clue ; She went beforoattwcnty-flve. And I live on at fifty-two And wait llio cud ; for well I know That I shall meet her without fall,' On komo Spring mornlng-aud till then 1 keep tho veil. Miscellaneous. AKAISIAN STOKIKS HOWXTHKXIIiE, It is wonilcrful how much plcnsuro Oriontuls manngo to fret out of n trum pery tnlc. As you float tlown tho sa cred river, for example, leaving Nubia and tho cataracts, and tho reaches of Syeno far behind, nnd pass Islets dozing in tho lull of waters, green corn fields, palmy slopes, shadowy dells, and mounds with ruined temples which on a sunny afternoon look like it lnndscapo of Claude, you arc forovcr hearing tho hum of llio story-teller to his p;roup on tlio fore. As tho sun went down, tho sailors would invariably snugglo to gether in tho dusk, Abdallah having no longer n scatt crcd or casual group of list eners, and under tho dewy glimmer of a lantern at tho mast, look nnd movo liko spectres as thoy listen to somo ter rible climax In tlio tratlltlounl story. Liko opium, it seemed to sootho tho nerves and tako off tho deadlier of in dolence. Our dragomen onco translated for us some of these talcs. Thoy were not without point, and wcro thoroughly characteristic of Eastern life. Fancy tho story-teller, hemmed in by bare- chested, open-mouthed, turbanod INton- ers, as intoning and sco sawing, ho nar rates n3 follows: Onco upon a timo thcro lived on tho edgo of tho deaort a Sheik named Ben Achnia. Now this man was a philos opher, who, gathering wisdom from overy passing adversity, as a leech culls simples, had como to possess quite a loard of it. Ho was still in tho prldo of manhood. His renown, however, had waxr.d so great that oven old men from iho neighboring tribes, dlhtant far from us tho sunset oasis camo to sub mit their quarrels to him and abldo by hlii Judgment. Ouo day a caravan from Meshid oueampod near his dwelling. Two Arabs, watering their camols at tho well, discoursed about tho wisdom of tho Kadi or Meshid. "Ho can ropoat tho Koran," said ono, "from thoFattha to tho end without dropping a point." Ho cuts through deceit as with a knife," answered tho other. Ben Achnia, smoking his afternoon chlbouquo under the shadow of ti palm, on hearing this nroso. "Tell mu, O brother," said ho, "who Is this man thou art so eager to praIo'."' "What then, thou dolt V" replied the camel driver. "Hast thou not heard of Haleol, Kadi of Meshid ? Allah !- Even tho Father of tho Faithful him self la a green tree boforohlm." "Dull!" rmitlcrcd the Sheik to him self, a.s ho walked homo musing, "and yot I am called Ben Achmu tho Wiso." Next morning Bon Achnia saddled his horso, and disguising himsolf a3 a merchant, started for Meshid lo soo tho sago himself. As ho Joumoyod, an old man mot him on tho way who said : "-My lord, I, liko thyself ttm traveling to tho next town, but I am weary. Pray permit mo to rldo." Ben Achma mado a sign of absent, and tho pilgrim climbed up behind. Whon thoy had como to tho galea ol Meshid, tho Sholk desired his companion to got dowu. "Nuv." said he, "It Is for theo to alight." 'And whereforoV" asked Ben Ach ma. "To leavo the hoiaowltli mo," re plied the pilgrim. "Bu ." ei ul the Shoik, "tlio norso Umlno." 'I know," answered the old vaga bond, "that woaro now lu tho city of the Just Kudl, and that when ho shall have set eyes on us two thou with thy lusty limbs and bravo looks, aud mo with my Irombllng knees and focblo frame ho will dccldo In slmplo equity that tho horso belongs to him who has tho most need of him." "If ho dccldo contrary to that which Is truo and right," returned tho Sholk, "ho Is not tho Just Kadi thou sayost Novortholess, I will profit by tho evil doing and Judgo his equity. Let us plead beforo him." Tho old managrcod and both started for tho court. They had to wait while two cases took the precedence. Tho first of theso boro upon it quarrel beforo it butcher and nn oil merchant. Both men woro In court standing beforo thoKndl thoono grlmy'wlth oil, tho other bespattored with blood, Tho butcher said, "1 went to buy oil at this kiuwo'rt shop, mid, in order (o pay him, I pulled out a hand fill of money whereof to tako it coin. Tho sight of tho goltl moved his lust, and lio BOlzcd my hand, pretending 1 had robbed him. I kept It closed, how over, notwithstanding that In tho pres ence of an oillcor holald his claim. And hero H Is now." Tho oil merchant do posed : "This rascal camo to buy oil, and, when 1 filled his bottlo, 'Gaztcr,' 3ald ho to mo, 'can you change mo a gold ploco?' I not suspecting him, drew open my drawer, from which ho clutched nhnndfiil nnd would have lied. Tho monoy is mine. I ask but jus tice." "Leavo tho money here," said tho Kadi, "and como back to-morrow. Tlio second caso was it disagreement between n laborer and a Bchool-mnslor touching a woman, Tho latter nlllrmcd that tho great hulking rustic had run r.way with his wife. Tho former de clared that tho woman had been mar ried lo him many n year. Tho Kadi said, "loavo tho woman hero, and como back to-morrow." And now it canio lo the turn of Bon Achma and Uuj ostuto oid pilgrim. "My Lord Kadi," said the Sheik, "I was on my way to your city when tills miscreant came up and craved permis sion to rido. In a moment of weakness I assented, and now ho claims tho horso upon the foregoing conclusion that you will assign hfm to tho ono that needs him moat." Tho Kadi said, "Leavo tho horso and como back lo-morrow." So the gold was put In tho coffer, tho woman in tho harem, and tho horso In Iho Kadi's stables. Early ou tho mor row tho litigants appeared. First tho oil merchant and tho bulchor. "You nfilrm," said tho Kadi to tho former, "that tho butcher stolo tho mo noy from your till, and yet tho coins, when placed in n cup of water, show no sign of oil. You n over handled tho mo noy with your greasy fingers. Iadjudgo tlio monoy to tho butcher, and thirty stripes to you.'1 Tho disputed wifo now camo forward. "Seeing," said tho Kadi, "that two men lay claim to tho samo woman, aud that neither can justify their claim, I directed her to nrrango my desk. Sho has cleaned and filled my ink-horn, nud adjusted my spongo, sorted my peii3, arranged my papers, and placed my chair. Sho evidently belongs to tho school master. Tho laborer will receivo thirty stripes." Now camo tho turn of Bon Achma and tho pilgrim. "Mako theso men fol low mo to tho stable," said tho Kadi. They wcro taken in separately, Bon Achma first. "Pick out tho horso you claim," said his worship, "I havo him hero," said tho Sholk, walking up to a stall. "Good! go out and let the Dsifrrim como "in." Do you recognize your horso, my Iriunti r" "My nortu 1 VTes, I should know him among a hundred!" said tho villain. "There ho Is." Tho magistrate returned, took his place on tho divan, aud forthwith ad- udged the horso to Bon Achma, whllo the old man was condemned to suffer fifty lashes, "May it ploaso your lord ship," said tho Sheik, making a pro found obeisanco after tho session, "upon what did you baso your judgment of tlio ownership of tho horso?" Tho mnglstralo replied, "when you laid your hand upon tho horso tho animal neished in recognition to his friend, but when tho pilgrim laid his hand upon him, he shrank from tho touch of a strangers." During tho three weeks we woro iloat- infr from Thob-M to Caho, every day bro'!"!if ,oine now ibjoct of intorct every niijht s-oinu droning story, to which our swaith companions listened with unabated attention. Ono nlgnt, whon tho rim of the red sun had Just disappeared bohlud tho western hills. Abdallah began a story that seemed to inchain unusual attention. I givo it a3 nearly ns possible, In our dragomah's words, "My friend's,' ' says tho slory-tellor, I am about to rclafo a truo history. In tho reign of Caliph llavouu al Has- chid, of happy memory, lived in tho city of Bagdad a celebrated barber of tho namo of All Saknl. Ho was so fa mous for a steady hand and doxterlty that ho could shavo a head and trim a beard blind-folded without drawing blood. There was not n man of any fushion in Bagdad who did not employ him ; and such a run of business had ho that ho bccAino proud nnd Insolent, and would scarcoly over touch a head whoso owner was not at least a Boy or an Agha. Wood for fuol was always se.ueo and dear at Bagdad, nud, a3 this barber's shop consumed a great deal, tho wood-cullers brought their loads to him in proforonco, almost suro of meet ing a ready salo. It happoncd ono day that a poor wood cuttcr.nowin his busl nos, and Ignorant of tho character of Ali Saknl, wont lo tho shop and offered him a load of wood ho had Just brought into town ou his ass. All Immediately offered a prlco, making uso of thC30 words, "for all tho wood that was upon the ass." Tho wood cutter agreed, unloaded his bcait, and asked for his monoy. "You havo not given mo all tho wood yot," said tho harbor. "I must havo tho pack-saddlo (which Is chlcllly mado of wood) Into tho bargain, that was our agreement." "How!" said tho other Ingreataniazo mcut, "who over hoard of such a bar gain ? It 13 Impossible" In short, after much altercation, tho over-bearing harbor solzod tho pack saddlo, wood and all, and sent away tho peasant In great distress. Ho im mediately ran to tho Kail I, stating his grlof j but, bolng ono ot tins harbor's customers, tho Kodl rofuscd to hoar tho caso. Tho wood cutter thou applied to a higher Judgo i ho also patronized All Sakal, and mado light of tho complolnt Tho poor man then applied to tho Mufti himself, w'ho.hnvlng pondored tho quos lion, said It whs too difficult a caso for him to decide, no provision bolng mado for It In tho Koran. Tho wood-cuttor was not dlshcartoncd, but forthwith got a -cilbo to wrltoa petition to tho Callpl which ho duly pre-xmled on Friday, the d.iv when Ills Highness went to tho 1872. 00L. mosque- In iitato. Hiiroun nl llaschld's punctuality in reading petitions Is well known, and it was not long boforo tho wood-cutter was called into his presence When ho approached tho Caliph ho kneeled and kissed the ground nnd then placed his arms straight beforo him, his hand covered with tho slcovo of his tunic, and his feet close together, await ed the decision. "Filcnd," said the Caliph, "tho bar bcr has words on his sldo, you havo equity on yours. Tho law must bo de fined by words, and agreements must bo mado by words; tho former must have Us course or It is nothing; nnd agreements bo kept, or thoro would bo no faith botwoon man and man ; but i" Then calling tho wood-cuttor close to hlm,lho Caliph whispered something In his car, aud sent him away quito sat isfied. Hero tho story-teller mado n pause In his narrative, and holding up a tin cup, said : "Now, friends, ir you will glvo me something I will toll you what thoCaliphsald to tho wood-cuttor." 'Iho piastres camo in rather plentifully. Well, thou, continued ho, tho Caliph whispered lo tho wood-cutler what to do In order to got satisfaction from tho barber. And what that was 1 will now relate. Tho wood-cultcr having mado his obeisance, returned lo his ass, which was tied without, took It by tho halter, anil proceeded to his home. A fow days after ho applied to tho barber, as if nothing had happened botweon them, requesting that ho and a companion of his from tho country might bo shaved. Tho prlco at which both operations wero lo bo performed was settled. Whon tho wood-cuttor'a crown had been properly shorn, All Sakal asked him whero his companion was. "Ho is just standing without hero," said tho other, "but ho shall como In," Accordingly ho went out, and re turned, leading his ass after him by tho halter. "This is my companion," said ho, "and you must shavo him." "Shavo him 1" exclaimed tho barber, in tho greatest surpriso : "It is enough that I havo condescended to demean myself by touching you and do you in sult mo by asking mo to shavo your boost ? Away with you, or I will thrash you both." And forthwith ho drovo thorn out of tho shop. The wood-cuttor immediately wont lo tho Caliph. '"Tiswcll," said tho Commander of tho Faithful. '"Bring All Sakal with his brushes and razors instantly here," ho exclaimed to his Vizier, and in tho coursoof ten minutes tho barber stood boforo him. "Why do you rofuso to shavo this man's companion ?" asked tho Caliph, "was not that your agreement? All kls'Od llio ground and answered, " 'Tis truo, O Caliph, that such was our igrccment, nut wno over matio a com panion of an ass beforo? Or who over thought of heating an ass ag a true bo Hover ? You may say right j" roplicd tho Caliph, "but who over thought of a pack-saddlo being included In a load of ood? No, no, it is a bargain, and you must keep It. To tho ass Immedi ately !" The barber was then obliged to pro- paro a great quantity of soap, lather tho beast and shave him from head to foot. Tho poor wood-cutter was then dismiss ed, and all Bagdad celebrated tho jus- tico of tho Commander of tho Faithful. A rr.TENn of Dean Swift's ono day sent him a turbot as a pro?out by a sor- ant-lad, who had frequently been on similar errands, but hadnovor received anything from tho Dean for his troublo. Having gained admission , ho opened tho study door, and putting down tho fish on tho floor, cried out, ruddy, Master has sent you t turbot !" "Young man," said the Doan, rising from his easy chair, "is that tho way you deliver a mossago V Let mo teach you better manners. Sit down In tho chair, wo will change places, aud I will show you how to behave in future." Tho boy sal down, and the Doan go ing out, camo up to tho door, and mak ing a low bow, said : "Sir, master pro souls his kind compliments, hopes you aro well, and requests your accoptauco of a small present." "Does ho?" roplicd the boy. "Roturn him my host thanks, and there's half a crown for yoursolf.'' Tho Dean thus caught In his own trap, laughod heartily, und gavo tho boy a crown for ready wit. Thoro Is a good deal of dry humor in tho Amorican press. Tho Sfollowlng extract from tlio Louisvlllo Courier is a gom in Its way : "Tho Now York Sun, which is seldom satisfied with thlng3, objects to tho proportions of arnttlo snako recently scon in Carter county, In this State, and described as reaching from ouo sldo of tho road to tho other, whllo Us body was as big as an ordinary churn. Tho Sun says that was a 'very badly proportioned snake,' aud that it should havo been a good deal longer or clso a good deal thinner.' wo should liko to know who Is running th06nakes of tills Stalo, herself or tho editor of tho Now York Sun. Whon things como to such a pass that Now York arrogates to hersolf tho right to dlclato to Kentucky tho slzo and shape of her scrponls, It is high timo for tho trumpet to sound to arms and for tho sword to leap from Its scabbard."

A Now Yolk paper, spoaklng of tho East lllvcr Brldgo, says that tho prea suro of air in the caisson now building Is thirty pounds to tho equaro Inch, or twlco tho ordinary atmospheric pres sure. Onco in tho lock and tho ontranco closed, it besomes necessary to havo an equal amount of pressure boforo tho door Into tho caisson can bo opened. To this ond air Is forced into tho lock until tho right prcs3tiro is reached. Between twenty and thirty men aro at work in tho chambers. Tho lowest point reached in the excavations is within nlno foot of tho rock. Tho aver ago depth of tho sand, however, la about flftoon foot. Already bouldors of trap rock aro found imbedded In tho quick sand ; theso aro broken up and hoisted out by means of an apparatus similar to it drcdglng-machlno, working in a hugo shaft filled with water. Tho men work In relays or "watches," each "watch" uimaiiiltig in (ho caisson for threo hours. Working In that compressed utmo3 pher lias its disadvantages, and the men complain of cramps sometimes, which, judging from Iholr description, mu3t bo very painful, as ouo of tho men likened It to"lcarin' tho fleehfrom yer leg." Tho low, dim-lighted chambers, filled with mist, tho shining pools of watci, and tho men tolling in tho nam ing gas-light amid tho rushing, rumbling nolso of tho sand syphons, comblno to mako nn Interesting scono not easily forgotten. "Try nud whistlo," suggested tho conductor of tho party, and try they did, but without succesa. Pucker their lips, and blow n3 hard as they could, no sound approaching a whistlo can bo produced. Tho voice, too, had a straugo, unnatural sound, aa though uttered In n high koy, all duo to tho compressed atmosphere. Tho interior of tho sides of tho cais son slopes outward, not unllko tho Hps of an enormous bell. In fact, tho work lug of tho structure Is upon nearly tho samo principlo as that of a diving-bell, tho prcs3uro of tho air kcoplng out thd water. When tho bed rock is reached, and tho caisson fairly settled upon It, tho interior will bo filled with concrete and masonry. Twenty courses of stono havo been laid upon tho caisson, and tho work Is being pushed forward as rapidly as pos sible At pro3ont tho work is somowhat retarded for lack of stono, which can not bo supplied fast onough. Tho Company has expended $1!,200,000. This includes tho amount paid for right of way. They havo on hand material amounting to nearly $300,000. Four hundred thousand dollars has been ex pended for lumber, and $120,000 for ma chlencry. It Is worthy of remark that tho Company having tho stono contract offered $20,000 to bo released from their contract. This offer tho Company de clined, bclloving that thoy could not mako such advantageous terms clso whore. Doubts havo been expros3cd as to tho stability of so huge a structure.. In re gard to this point, tho superintendent states that tho opinions of tho most dis- tlugnished eugineors havo been sought upon tho flubjcct,aud thoy fully indorao tho plans. It has boon thought by somo that it would bo necessary to build a pier In tho middle of tho river. This would bo impossible, from tho fact that Congress would never permit 11, and oven if it were built vessels would bo constantly carried against It by tho force ol the current and injured.and the Company continually involved in suits for damages. A wind traveling at the ralo of sixty miles an hour, which is an extreme case, would not away tho brldgo, even at its great clovatiou. It is expected that steam cars will run across tho bridge at tho rato of twenty mllc3 an hour, Tho entiro cost of tho struc ture, when completed, Is estimated at $12,000,000. This i thought to bo an oittaido figure. Ostrich l'nrms. The raising of tho ostrich In a tamo stale, for lis feathors, is now carried on oxlenslvoly in Africa.

Every eight months thoy nro plucked, somo extracting tho quill at onco, and others cutting tho quill allttlonbovolts Insertion, aud then removing tho roots a couplo of months latter. Tho latter method is said lo givo better results with less Injury to tho bird. Tho yield Is obout fifty dollars per annum foreach bird. In breeding It is found to bo best to allow ono femalo to each malo, though lu tho wild stato five females aro often attached to a slnglo malo. Thcro aro usually two broods in a year, and tho malo aud femalo sit on tho oggs by turns, tho malo generally taking tho largest sharo of this duty. Tho femalo takes chief chargo of tho brood after it is hatched.
