WHAT THEY EAT AT XENIA.—The "fax

rience of endeavoring to get dinner at
Xenia, on the Little Miami railroad :
"Twenty minutes for dinner," shouted
the brakeman as we approached Xenia.
Arrived there I entered the dining
room and inquired for a waiter,
"What do you have for dinner ?"
"Twenty minutes," was the hurried
I told him I would try half a dozen
minutes, raw, on the half shell, just to
see how they went. Told him to make
a minute of it on his books. He scratch
ed his head, trying to comprehend the
order, but finally gave it up and waited
upon some one else.
I approached a man who stood by the
door with a roll of, money in his hand.
"What do you have for dinner?"
"Half a dollar," said he.
I told him I would take a half& dollar
well done. I asked him if he couldn't
send me, in addition, a boiled pocket

seven thirties, garnished with postage
stamps and ten cent scrip. Also a COB.

The . Evils 'of Intemperance.
“How like-anew existence.to,his heart,
Uprose that living flower beneath hie eyes,
Dear sa-she"was from cherub infancy, •
From hour; when she would round his garden
To time as when the ripening years went by,
tier lovely mind would culture well repay
And moretogeging grow from day to day.”
Mary was an only child of re
spectable parents, who, although they
were not in opulent circumstances,
brought her up with all the care and
fondness that affectionate parents could
bestow upon an only dear, interesting
and obedient child:
Here was a forth of life and light.
That soon became a'-part cd eight,
And rose where'er turn'd mine eyes,
The morning Star of memory.
At an• early age she was placed at a
boarding school in a handsome and flour
ishing town near where her parents re
sided. Here by. assiduity and fondness
for literary entertainments, her improve.
went soon realized the fondest hopes of
her parents and tutor. While here sbe
became acquainted with a young man
by the name of W—. He became
more and more attached to her, and,
pleased with his deportment and the
many kind favors bestowed upon her,
I she unconsciously became in love with
him. She soon after left school and
returned to her Introits. He followed
and ventured to visit her at . her own
home, she was not yet seventeen ; her
parents became alarmed and remonstra
ted with her ; told her she was too young
to indulge a serious affection (or any
young man, and besides this Mr. W—.
was a stranger. But the earnest en
treaties of her parents were in vain.
They were scion married. For a while
nothing could exceed the happiness of
the young couple ; her parents became
-reconciled to •the union. They could not
but censure themselves for their oppo
sition to their marriage. There seemed
throughout the whole little circle a
perfection of bliss. But alas 1 the de
stroyer was on their march, those bless
ings were like the autumnal flowers
which bloom forth in that maturity of
loveliness which is ever the harbinger of
decay. In a short time W—'s affec
tions became weaker. He became at
tached to a' company of intemperate
young men, who frequented taverns and
gambling' houses. At home be became
sullen and morose ; he seldom returned
home before midnight, and often re
maining, out until day break. Mary .sat
lonely and melancholy night after night,
weeping, by the :flickering lamp, eagerly
...catching the sound of every foot step in
iiiipes it might be her husband. But• in •
temperance steels the heart equally
against tenderness and reproach ; it is
listless of the song of -sorrow or the
warning voice of admonition. Her aged
and venerable father, unable to with
stand the shock, soon descended to the
tomb, and left her broken hearted moth
er tottering on its brink. Mary was not
calculated to withstand this severity;
long, but still " There was a brilliant
flash of youth about her ; and her kind
ling eye poured such unearthly light
that he would hang e'en on the archer's
arrow While its dropped deep poison.
Many a restless night she toiled, for that
slight breath which held her from the
tomb, still wasting 'like a snow' wreath
which the eau marks for his own on
some cold mountain breast, yet spares
and tinges long with rosy light." One
evening a sudden change took , place in
her disease and she was considered dan
gerously ill. Her husband being absent
was sent for, but could not be found.
She grew worse every
breath grew shorterand shorter and she
was not expected to live another hour.
She was resigned to her fate. "But my
husband ! my dear husband !!' she sighed
in broken accents, " how can I die with
out seeing thee I feel that I cannot
live long ; oh, that my husband were
here-) one last farewell toy him." Her
voice here, failed, and she was -heard to
whisper a short prayer in which her -line
band's name was' mentioned. At, her
request her mother sang a .fiymn of
which the following ice verse
"Jesus-can make-a dying bed,
*Feel soft as downy pillows are ;
. hie breast I lean my head,
And breathe my life out. sweetly
The night Inks passed in the_ stillness
of the grave. In -the morning her hus
band arrived, after spending the night
in dis sipation and ri o t some wretched
place •of vice. Be wept. as be looked
upon his wife, she tenderly looked'hins
in the face and said, I' say husband; You
Uwe. some towitnesetnylisettnoniente."
TtrEe, m. 7 Very, yes) caner,
you shall not die:" Placing one head in
her husband's and the other in her moth:
er's, Bile was just heard to say, " I die
happy=farewell— my mother—farewell
—dear husband—uty the Lord favor thy
end as he does mine ; repent, repent,
farewell, farewell," and expired. His
conscience told him he was the cause of
her death. Flow many thousands of
similar cases could be told. And still
runi is drank, at the expense of broken
hearts, crashed hopes and sorrowful
deaths. God have mercy on the Rum

The following from one of the old
British poets is exquisite. It is the very
essence of fancy, It is addressed to a
young lady upon whose bosom a flake of
snow fell and melted :
The envious snow comes down in haste,
To prove thy breast lees fair;
But grieves to see itself surpassed,
And melts into a tear.
"PShiiw !" says Major Noah, "we
can beat that any time." Look here :
DOwo her white bosonrrolled the tear,
We know it hadn't ()tighter,
Until at last—at last—oh, dear,
Her shirt is wet as water.
A youngster came home after having
a glorious time in the puddles, his face
all aglow, and his rubber boots full of
water. The punishment of staying in
the house for the remainder of the day
did not seem very hard at first; but as
hie little heart warmed up with the re
collection of the triumphs of the morn
ing, when he had waded deeper than any
of his playmates dared to, he could bear
the restraint no longer, and went to his
mother saying.: "Please, mother,..whip
me and tet me go out again 14'

The Japanese have long had a custom
among them that when any official makee
a signal failure in the administration of
public affairs he is required to atone for
his error by a process of disembowling
himself, called the harri•karri It ap
pears that the mode , of death: has been
lately modified, but suicide, in cases of
failure, is btill a duty incumbent on the
official. Dr. McGowan, Ws lecture on
4itan, recently delivered at San Fran_
cieco, gives the following account of the
" The Emperor is of too sacred an or
igin to busy himself with the cares of
State, which are left with the Generaliar,
simo or Tycoon; who, with a legislative
body of thirteen nobles, similar to our .
Congress, governs the country.. The
Tycoon has the right of veto, and if his
veto is-sustained-by Congress, the fram
er-of the bill is compelled to 'commit
suicide, but if the bill is passed over the
veto, then it beeomes the duty of the
Tycoon to perish by his own hands.
The day of suicide is one of great pomp ,
and parade. The Tycoon or Congress
man, as the ease may be, issues cards of
invitation, and receives his friends in
grand style, and after treating them to a
sumptuous feast, makes them a speech,
bidding them adieu, and then prepares
for death. The old mode used - to be by
making an incision in the stomach and
disembowling himself. Of late years,
however, the elder son, or some sear
relative, gets behind the condemned and
with a sudden jerk dislocates his neck.
This mode of death is only reserved for
the elegant and refined, ,and the lower
°lessee are not permitted to indulge in
such high toned luxuries."
It is fortunate for Andy Johnson and
the bread-and-butter party, that such ~ a
sacrifice is not required in the 'United
States. Imagine the consternation
which would pervade the ranks of the
party, if, after the - verdict
, of Congress
and the people against him, he were re
quired to take himself off after the Jap
anese manner ! What mourning there
would be among the office holders, not
only for, the anticipated loss of their
great Tycoon bat for their own official
heads, so soon to follow I And then the
assemblage at the solemn feast, with
Seward and Randall and Cowan and
Doolittle, et id erane genus, as the chief

arises to make his farewell speech. He
recounts to his friends how he has filled
every office from that of alderman in th
village of Greenville, up to >the Pres -
.dency. He asks them to point out any
pledge he, has ever violated ; says he has
been slandered and-villifiedi by a body
hanging .on theverge of the Government
but is ready to pow oat his- blood as a
libation , on the altar of his country. He
had fought traitors at: the South, . and
now, swinging around the circle, he had
been fighting the men who had.put down
the traitors. He asked why Wendell
Philips and Thad. Stevens have not
been hanged. Burt he does not intend
making a speech ; he only desires to
thank them, to bid them adieu, and to
leave in their hands the Constitution of
the Union of thirty-six States, and the
flag with thirty-six
At this point, his dutiful privateaec•
rotary, knowing that any farther remarks
of the Tycoon would only be &repetition
of those already made, "goes behind the
condemned and with a sudden jerk dis
locates his neck."
According to strict Japanese etiquette
perhaps Seward, as the Presidential ad
viser,-and Cowan, Randall and Co., as
the getters-op of thit miserable failure,
the new party inaugurated at the Phila
delphia Convention, would be required
to follow the example of their dear chief.
