Quito a number of odd and amus

ties who visit the Clerk's office for the
purpose of securing the necessary doc

the other day, a young man, about
twenty-one, accompanied by one ofi
the opposite sex, equally as young, as
cended the main steps of the court
house, and then, on being directed to
the Clerk's office, took up the line of
march for its hallowed precincts.
Reaching, he refused to enter.
lhe rustic maiden, who was ex
tremely anxious to see the marriage
prolamine carried to a successful is

eyes, and then taking him by the hand,
in the most tender manner, beseeched
him to go to the court and obtain the

Detecting Counterfeit Notes.
Many of the women engaged in the
redemption bureau, at Washington,
become exceedingly expert in detect
ing counterfeits, matching fragments
of notes, and counting currency. The
ends of their fingers are educated to
such a degree of sensitiveness that they
discover counterfeits by simply feeling.
A gentleman who, I think, must have
been slightly jealous of this competi
tion in the labor market, said: "JNo
wonder they count money rapidly.they
are so light-fingered." But their super
ior officers bear witness to the iiict, not
only that lightness of fingers enables
thein to count money rapidly, but that
they possess a quickness of preceptiou
by 'which they count with lewer mis
takes than men. It seems hard,though
no doubt necessary, that if, in spite of
their carefulness, a counterfeit docs es
cape their facile fingers, or an error
occur iu their reckoning, they are
obliged to make up the loss from their
own pockets. New clerks often lose
considerable sums in cousequenco of

that human loresight can accomplish
to attain absolute safety, is done.

It is well known that, in different
parts of the world, there are people
who eat earth ; among them are some
of the natives of Java, who eat a red
kind of earth as a luxury. This earth,
which is soft and smooth to the touch,
has been analyzed hy a German chem
ist, who finds it very rich in iron, with
a small quantity of potassa and soda.
Some tribes cat eartlk to stay the pangs
of hunger by filling their stomachs,
and because at times they can get
nothicg better; but the people in Java
cut their earth baked iu thin cakes, as
an agreeable variety in their general
diet. Tho cakes, when slightly mois
tened, are rich and unctuous, and the
enjoyment in eating is supposed to
consist in the sensation produced by a
fatty substance. It is a curious fact
iu the history of human habits.
It is singular how the seemingly
most important things will slip a man's
mind unless he is constantly reminded
of them. A Minnesota man, after
living there a year or two and enjoying
himself, had got all ready to get mar
ried; when one day he received a let
ter from Maine, and on opening it
found it was from wife, asking for
money to support the children. All
that time the fact of his having a w ife

A Bitter Sarcasm.
In the Golden City, a gentleman by
the name of Jones recounts his experi
ence of juries, lie lived in the small
'own of Bloodandthundcrvillc, where
oo saw a man brought in "not guilty"
of murder because he had shot the se
ducer of his wife. This gave him an
idea. He remembered that in by-gone
days, one Mr. McMichael had horse
v hipped him with impunity. Thirst
ing for revenge, Jones went ofT and
shot McMi'jhnel ; he was brought to
trial, and told the iury that he once
had a wife who loved hi in till the
spoiler came, and that spoiler's name
was AIcMichacl. Instantly the jury
roared out "not guilty." Then he shot
a man who pulled his nose in days of
yore. When the twelve heard hira
sob, "I bad a sister once who ," they
mndly yelled "not guilty. lhen he
killed a man who had caned him.

Mr. Jones had another enemy who had
cowhided him. He murdered him also,
but by this time all his dssolute rela
tives had been used up, and when he
sobbed, "Ah, gentlemen, I had a cat,"
the jury absurdly refused to render a
verdict of "not guilty," and so his
lawyer had to get a new triul fi.r him,
which he did, and thus cleared him.

verging on three score find ten ; but
he sometimes looks back along the
aisle of lime and sees dimly outlined
in the distance some beautiful flower
that he loved when passing that way,
and recalls the pleasure that it gave
him. Sitting by his lonely fireside, he
often indulges in these reflections, and
one night recently they came trooping
around him like old friends, and the
old man shut his eyes that his mental
vision might become more clear. Just
then soft warm lips were pressed lov
ingly on his brow. It sent a thrill
through him like fire. If it was a de
lusion, he throught it tho sweetest he
had ever known. For fear that the
Bensation would vanish if he opened
his eyes, he persistently closed them,
and ever and anon the soft warmth of
those fresh, sweet lips would caress his
face, brow and neck. It was electrical.
Surely, he had a fairy visitant, for he
heard no footstep, not even the rustle
of a tiress. But the tuspense at last
became intolerable, and he opened his
eyes to see the fair floffef that memo
