band. Every old Calil'ortiian, hnvinjr in

ly cook. He maintains even great
er conceit than thw; he deems himself
cook superior t ntiy woman in the
world, when he chooses to concentrate
his mind on culinary Affairs. On such
man, when : duly married, 'there
breaks out once or twice a year n culin
ary mania. He must cook) he will
cook. He watches "the onnortonitv

He itvades the kitchen. He kindles a
fire In the stove. Before kindling that
fire he leaves open every door iu the
house, from cellar to garret. lie
turns the damper the wrong way. He
draws water in the wrong bucket to
fill the tea-kettle. These things are
terrible to mention, but they are. often
done in California. He throws potato
and other vgetable pnrings ii, the
cleanest pail he can find. Wherever
he waikt' uud wherever lie touches he
leaves a "muss." He leaves kuives,
forks and spoons all over the house;
also, dish-rags; he ceases to be a
rational or accountable being. An
old male California cook, married and
iu his wife's kitchen, is not a well
spring of pleasure.
He brings all the frying-pam ho
can find into use. He sets their sooty
bottoms on the clean piue table. II
contemplates making tea. He reflects
as to the quantity he used in the mines
fur a "making." He cannot recollect
exact!. JJa crams several fwtfuls in
to the teapot. He will have enough,
any way. No one wlut drinks thereof
sleeps that night. Nervous. Heessavs
to make biscuit. He wonders how
much saleratus they used in the minti
to get a good rise on. He uses enough.
He kneads his dough, and wondering
vacantly about the house, leaves tracks
of flour at every, step. It is in the
parlor, on the door knobs, on the ban
nisters. He cau cook. Hn says he
cau cook better than any wofnennthe
world it he "was only a-mind to give his
mind to it." This conceit is never to
be takeu out of him. It is peculiar
to all old Californiaus; for he made
bread in mines. It was gooj bread,
too good to kill. They say two
"parduers" who "eabincd'' with him
died of heavy bread digestion. He as
given twenty-four", hours to leave that
caaip.'-'Now we see him-ravishing hi
wile s kitchen. He has burned up all
the choice newspapers lying about,
which the folks wauted to read. He
is using table-butter to cook with, and
sets the cooking butter on the table.

Iu the midst of all t'lis culinary
riot, chaos, smoke, grease, soot, rags,
and flour, tho wife comes home She
opens the hall door, and is oppressed
by the cloud of 6inoke. She knows
then that the ctilinury fit is on her
husband; She steps into the kitchen.
There he stauds, red lieated, flustered,
caught in the act, with a big spoon in
one hanii; a tormentor iu the other,
spot of black on his nose. The frying
pan is full of hot, smoking lard. It
siziles and sputters all over him, as he
stauds there with buck to the stove,
aud all over everything for many feet
around. There comes from the oven
door a suspicious smell of smoke; his
biscuit are burning. All sorts of
things in pots are boiling over. She
rushes to hia assistance. Both burn
their fingers. He has mislaid half the
covers, and canuot find them. One is
discovered, a fortnight afterward, up
stairs under the bed. How did it git
there? lie says he didu't know he
was carrying it up at the time. Absent-minded.
He was looking for a
cleau towel at the time.
His wie, in despair, goes to her room,
aud trips; and thinks of her happy
girUiood days. She does not come to
sup'per. No one eats much that evening
lie has the table to himself. He hasn't
much of au uppetite, either. He gets
up every half minute for some forgot
ten article for the salt, for a cup, for
a saucer. When he has entirely finish
ed, he fiuds the potatoes forgotten;
the are still on the stove boiling

Next day his wife comes down stairs,
and hires a womau to cleau up. Things
get settled in about a week. It is his
only fault. lie slicks to it that he
can cMik better thuu any woman in
tho world, if he chooses "to give his

er broke out in him until they had

A Murderer on Oratory.
We have received from a good friend
in Virginia the following farther illus
tration ot the extent to which the I
sensibility -of criminals is curried :
line sun a very young man, on
account of his uncommon ability and
legal acquirements, Mr. Kichard Cole
man was made judge of one of th
eastern circuits of Virginia in the
year 18. Having hitherto led the
life of a student aud scholar he had
no extended reputation except among
nis nreinren, and as counected with
the profession, and had never been in
politics. Shortly after he went upon
the bench a most cold-blooded and
cruel murder was perpetrated in his
district by a very notoriously bad
man. The murderer was apprehended,
tried, and convicted of murder in the
first degjoe. Judge C. proceeded to
pronounce sentence, the first he had
ever had to, which he had prepared
with great care, and, as he himself
said, the best of which he was capable,
and which he had afterward, in similar
sentences, been obliged to make the
basis of them all. Such was the sol
emnity of the occasiou and the fervid
eloquence of the judge, that all who
listened to the sentence passed were
moved to tears all except the prison
er at the'bar, who was observed to be
looking at the ceiling, and to pay no
attention whatever, appearing wholly
indifferent to what was going on.- Af
ter he had been remanded to jail, one
of the juuior members of the hur hav
ing hia curiosity excited, and Judge C.
alio" wishing to know what effect his
eloquence hud upon the criminal, went
itito the cell where the prisoner was
and inquired of him how he felt when
Judge C. was passing sentence on him.
"What?" said the criminal, "what do
you mean?" "I mean when the judge
was telling you that you were to be
hung and urging you to prepare for
the awful doom that awaited )uti."
"Yotr moan when he was talking to
me?" "Yes." "Oh! I never paid no
'tention to Dick Colemau ; he sin't uo
public speaker nohow." Galaxy.
A aovel trial is reported to have
taken place in London. ' A ludy went
to a ball, and when preparing to re
turn to her home in the evening, before
going to her carriage, took off her
coiffure and tied it up in a handker
chief, to keep it fresh for a party she
was to attend the following' night, and
that she might the more conveniently
put' warmer wraps on her head, the
evening being cold. When she reach
ed her dwelling the coiffure was not in
tho carriage. She dispatched a tnes
seugcr for it, but it could not be found.
Some days after she met an acquaint
ance, whose hair was the same
color as her own rather a peculiar
hue and was satisfied slio wore her
coiffure. She taxed her with it. Of
course it wus indignantly deDied. So
certain wits the ludy that the hair the
other wus wearing was the article she
lost at the ball she sued !,er tor it.
When the tri;;', came on the defendant
strut.'!; ihe prosecutor dumb, and con
vinced the court by letting down her
tresses aud showing they were her own,
thereby procuring judgement in her
favor. Suhseqt i.tly she quarreled with
her hajr-dresser, when it came out that
the hair she had so dexterously exhib
ited as having grown on her own head,
had grown on some other head, but
had been artfully and artistically ar
ranged for the pulling down process
by the hair-dresser.
A Viennese chemist has succeeded
in making the flimsy material of bal
let dancers' dresses fire proof, and the
Prince of Lichteusein, taking a lively
interest in all that concerns the ballet,
has given the new invention a trial on
the stage of bis own palace. A nu
merous company was invited to wit
utss the experiment. Tho rise f the
curiaiu discovered two dolls dressed
as ballet girls, to both of whom a light
was applied. While one flared up iu
a second and was rapidly reduced to
ashes, the other, impregnated with the
talismanic cnniMieitioii, escaped with
a small hole in her dress. The experi
ment was considered satifactory; but
the prince, designing to turn the dis
covery to a wider use, is having a
wooden theatre erected outside of
Vienna for the purpose of testing once
more the Cre proul composition, with
which the boards are to be saturated.
An Irishman one morning went out
very early in search of game on tho es

enforced. Turning a sharp corner,
whom did he meet but tho gentleman
who owned tho estate. Paddy, seeing
the gufue was up, coolly advanced to
ward the gentleman etui said: 'The
top of the morning to j our honor ; and
what brought your honor out so early
this morning? The gentleman replied
by saying, 'Indeed, Paddy, I just stroll
ed out to see if I could find an appetite
for my breakfast ;' and then eyeing
Paddy rather suspiciously, said : 'And
now, Paddy what bronchi you out so
early this morning ?' Paddy replied,
'Indade, your honor, I just strolled out
to see if I could hud a breakfast for

Is it Her Own.
A special policeman, at the recent
exhibition at the New York artists for
the benefit of their fellows in Chicago,
tells the following story:
When Miss Ream began to model
the bust of Mr. Cooper, there was such
a rush of people to see her work that
we found it necessary to obtain the
constant attendance of a pol iceman,
who was instructed to see that the
crowd kept moving, so that everybody
could get a sight of her. Of course
you know all about her good looks,
her bewitching curls, and so forth, so
that the attraction was twofold to
see the lady ando see the sculptress.
Well, anxious t() fcnow how this moving
on plan worlscd whether it was com
fortable to be in the tide or not and
perhaps a little bit curious to hear the
criticisms of the crowd, I pocketed mv
badge of office the other day and j. lin
ed it. I found myself immediately
behind two ladies who as we approach
ed more nearly opposite Miss Keatr, at
her work, launched immediately into
critioiKtn. Nor did they seem to care
who overheard them ; so, I couldn't
uelp but hear, even if I didn't want
to. But I told you already that I did.

To be an Editor.
Carlton, in his editorial poem, tells
of an old farmer who made bis way in

who being good for nothing else, the

The editor sat in his sanctum, and

The Size of the Union.
It has been said that there is only
one man w ho has a correct idea of the
size of the United States, he is the mau
who drove a yoke of oxen, in 1850.51,
from Maine to California. However
this may be, the newspuprr remark
that "few people realize the immensity
of our territorial area," is true. There
ate in the Great West eleven Territo
ries, two or three ofwhich are twice or
three times ns large as ail New Eng
land; and it is a small Territory that
that is not at least ten times as large
as Massachusetts. Colorado is thir
teen times as large as Massachusetts,
while Dakota and Arizona are half as
large again as Colorado. The eleven
Territories, as accurately as can at
present be ascertained, contained over
one billion and a quarter of acres (1,.
030,385,919), exceeding by nearly
two hundred thousand square miles
tho aggregate territory of ell the pres
ent admitted States of the Union. The

An old manuscript has recently been
discovered ia Westeru New York con
taining the following anecdote ot the
famous i Indian Chief, Red Jacket,
which is new : He was ou a visit to a
house in Canandaiguia, and not arriv
ing uulil after dinner, the girl was or
dered to make preparations for him.
She, through carelessuets, or thinking
it would do well enough forau Indian,
placed on tho table a dish of meat
that had been visited by the flies. Red
Jacket advanced to the table, and see
ing the insects busily engaged in the
meat, took the dish and placed it on
the sill of the door, stepped buck, took
his rifle, deliberately took aim aud dis
charged the contents through the meat.
The report of the gun alarmed all in
the bouse. They rau to inquire the
cause. Red Jacket replied that he
always killed his meat before he ate it.
The joko had its desirtd effect.
