Anecdote of Jefferson.
A party, Mr. Jefferson, tho Presi
dent, amonc them, went out rldtnir. A
small shower had fallenduringtheattcr-
noon, and when they got back to Moor's
Creek, tho water was running up to tho
saddle girths of tho horse. An ordinary
western looking man was sitting on tho
nans with a saddle In his hands.
Ho waited till all tho party badentor-
ed tho stream but Mr. Jefferson, and
then asked him for a ride across. To
rein up to a stone, suffer him to mount,
en croupe, nnd carry him totheopposlto
bank was a matter of courso. In a few
rolnutos the party In tho rear, who had
witnessed the affair overtook our sad
dled pedestrian stretching his way along
tho foot of Carter's mountain.

That Bad Boy.
Elder Perkins had an appointment at
the Ladles' Missionary Rooms, at fivo
o'clock Friday afternoon, and at 4.50
you might havo seen tho street car com
ing down South Main under a full head
ot one-horse power, and the Elder com
ing up Banks street as fast as 2501tve
welght would permit. Tho bell of a milk
cart had deceived him as to theproxlml.
ty of the car, and if a fresh orange peel
had not caused him to measure his
breadth on the pavement ho would have
had to wait for it. As it was, ho bad
Just time to fish his spectacles from the
gutter, and hts stovo-plpe, together with
his gold-headed cane, 'from an open
hatchway, when the car was on band.
Tom Fills, the butcher's boy, was on
board, and although most of the passen
gers were smiling at the Elder's appear
ance, Tom kept up a very sober look as
he politely offered tho Oust rated Elder his
seat, taking up a position on tho 6teps.
The Elder was a sight as he slowly mov
ed to tho proffered seat, One pantaloon
leg was over tho strap ot his boot, and
his bat looked like the leaning tower of
Pisa. The muddy sidewalk had parti
ally I eclipsed bis nose and painted a
moustache that would havo done credit
to a professor ot burnt cork. The El
der bad got opposite to tho scat offered
him and was preparing to put an end to
his troubles by sinking with a dignified
movement into a "place of rest," when
alurch of tho car sent him down with a
vengcaucc, but ho came up again as it a
mine of torpedoes had oxplodod under
tho car, pitching headlong Into an an
cient maldcn'slap, smashlnganew sum
mer bonnet she was taking homo,
thumping tho prominent buglo ot a
brother D. D., on tho right, with tho
gold-headed cane, and letting off a yell
that could havo been heard a block
away. Tho ono-horso power etartod oft
on a run, encountering the up car, re
sulting in throwing them both from
their tracks and mixing things general
ly. Tho last seen of tho polite boy, was,
around the corner telling tho boys how
well that bent pin had perforated old
Perkins, who, by tho way, was at this
tlmo waddling homo faster than ho came,
and thinking what a glorious preroga
tive Elijah had to punish wicked boys.
A Valuable Recipe.
The Journal ot Chemistry publishes
a reclpo for tho destruction ot insects,
which, if It bo ono.half as efficacious as
it is claimed to bo, will prove Invalu
able: Hot alum water Is a recent suggestion
as an Insecticide. It will destroy red
and and black ants, cockroaches, spi
ders, chintz bugs, and all tho crawling
pests which Infest our houses. Tako
two pounds ot alum and dissolve It in
three or four quarts of boiling water;
let It then stand on tho fire till the alnm
disappears; then apply It with a brush,
while nearly boiling hot, to every joint
andcrevlco In your closets, bedsteads,
pantry-shelves and the like. Brash the
crevices In the floor ot tho skirting, or
mop-boards, It you suspect that they
harbor vermin. If, in whitewashing a
celling, plenty of alum is added to tho
lime, It will also serve to keep insects at
a distance. Cockroaches will floo the
paint which has been washed In cool
alum water. Sugar barrels and boxes can
bo freed from ants by drawing a chalk
mark just around the edge of the top of
them. Tho mark must bo unbroken, or
they will creep over It; but a continuous
chalk mark half an inch In width will
set thelrdepredatlons at naught. Powd
ered alum or borax will keep tho chintz
bugs at a respcctablo distance, and tra
velers should always carry a package
in their hand bags, to scatter over and
nnder their pillows In places whero they
have reason to suspect the presence of
The other day a very pretty young
lady rodo In tho horse-car which dally
conveys us down town; and as sho sat
just within our range of vision, wo could
not help observing tho "handkerchief
flirtation" sho presently commenced
with an exquisite seated opposite. That
both enjoyed the sport was evident; her
faco was so pleasant to look at that ono
would think her secure from ill-natured
romarks, but presently, whon the charm
ing coquetto left the car, my ears ting
led as I heard what her partenern tho
pleasant llttlo gamo audibly whlsperell
to a companion; while tho girl went her
way, her pulses still tingled with grati
fied vanity, never dreaming that ten
minutes; folly had Jeopardized her good
narao. If all young ladies who prido
themselves on their skill and tact In tho
art of flirtation, could only hear all
that is paid ot them, behing their backs,
wo think they would renounce their in
delicate blandishments forever, if not
past that whloosoino Indication ot shame,
for tho false part they had so far play
ed on society. The practical flirt Is look
ed upon by all youug men, savo thoso
green enough to be her victims, merely
as a piece of human trumpery, with
whom It may bo well enough to while
away an hour or two now and then,
when nothing better In the way of am
