that nearly stunned him, and asked
him, in a rough tone, what he meant by

nounco to his delighted mother that

Tho staid, quiet portion ot Bucks
county known as Warminster town
ship Is now greatly excited over a
.strange elopement. It seems that a
bout a year slnco a fancy colored man
named Joe Falmer came to Warminster
and engaged with Mr. John Thompson,
ono of the aristocratic, citizens, as a
nian-ot-all-work, ' While thus employ
ed It was noticed that he became quite
intimate with Miss Annlo Thompson,
tho beautiful, refined, and accomplished
daughter of his employer.
Shortly afterward Palmer was takeu

until the family prevented It oy having
him removed elsewhere. But It seems
that Miss Thompson's visits were clan,
drstlnely continued to him. After 'his

said he would be oven with tho Thomp
sons forsendlng him away fiom Jir
residence during his illness.
Miss Thompson's father and mother
did all they could to prevent nny fur
ther intimacy between their daughter
and Palmer, and she seemlnglyconsent
cd completely to their wishes. But
neither they nor tho community wcro
prepared for tho denouement which has
A day or two slnco Joo Palmer stated
to various persons that ho was going
West, and was noticed making exten
slve preparations. About tho same
1 1 mo Miss Thompson persuaded bor
mother to allow a visit to a neighboring
township to mako some purchases. She
went instead to tho railroad depot, and
boarding the Philadelphia train, met
Palmer at the next station.
As tho young lady did not return at
the timo she informed her mother she
would, a search was Instituted and the
trutli learned. Tho terribly distracted
parent at onco went to Philadelphia,
but although a most persistent search
was made, nothing of tho couple could
bo learned further than that Palmer was
seen In the neighborhood of tho hay
market, at Seventh and Columbia ave.,
the day subsequent to the elopement.
Miss Thompson Is a great helress,and
has always been held in tho highest es

parents arc heartbroken at her rash
act. Further endeavors havo bean
made for her recovery, but no traces of

Four prominent capitalists ot this place

Many observations havo been made
lately by our naturalists as to the de
fence which color supplies to animals' :
hares, rabbits, stags, and goats possess
the most favorable shade for concealing
them In the depths of the forest or In
the fields. ItJIs well-known that when
the Volunteer corps were enrolled, and
the most suitable color for riflemen was
discussed, it was'supposedto bo green.
Soldiers dressed In different shades

plains, to try which offered tho best
concealment. CoutraryJ to expecta

zine. A Little Game op Dbaw Poker.
An able statistician has, with Infinite
labor, compiled a table whereby tho
changes and chances which may occur
In a game of poker, may be told at a
glance. For Instance 2,508,000 different
hands can bo dealt with a pack of cards:
1,303,510 will contain less than a pair,
and 1, 200.420 one nair or more. Thn
latter hands divided into 1,098,2-10 ot
ono pair, 34,013 of threes, ;i25,533 of
two pairs, 10,200 strelohts. 5.103 flush
es, 3,774 fulls, 024fours, andObtralght
flushes. With this table In ono hand
and your cards In the other It w'll tako
a very smart man to get the best of you
in a very little name of draw. If in the
course of 04,074 deals your adversary
holds two straight flushes, a look at tho
table will convlco you that some
thing is wrong, and If fours are played
on you more than onco in 4,163. In.
stead ot drawing your cards, "draw"
your revolver and "call"" for tho
police, and when they take him vou
take the pool.
