the first inventors of beer; they called It
the Feluslan liquor, because it waa first
made in Felusium, a oity near the mouth of
the Nile, about twelve hundred years be.
fore the Christian era. The porter, for
which London has become so distinguished,
was first introduced about the year 1750.
Previous to that time, the malt liquors in
general use were ate, beer, aud two-penny i
or else a pint, or tankard, of three-threads,
meaning a third of ale, beer, and two
peuiiy; Then the publican was obliged to
draw from three casks to serve one cus.
tomer. .To avoid this trouble and waste, a
brewer, whose name was Harwood, con
ceived an idea of making a liquor which
should partnke of the united flavors of ale,
beer and two-penny j this he called entire,
or entire butt beer, meaning that it was
drawn entirely from one cask, or butt. It
was soon discovered to be . a very hearty
nourishing liquor, suitable for porters and
other workiug people, whence it obtained
the name of porter.

a "moonshiner" in the mountains, who,
when her father was arrested recently by
the deputy marshals, clipped out of the
back door, dressed only in the garment in

AN IIXJUHY CVUIiS INSANITY.
A singular case of recovery from insanity
through an injury occurred recently in tha
New York Homceopathio Stato Asylum for
the Insane. A male patient twenty-four
years old, when iu a state of violent irrita
tion, sprang up to the gas fixture, caught
hold of a slender tubing, and swung him.
Keif with considerable force. The fixture
gave way and the patient fell, striking his
hed on tho stone pavement. Instantly he
arose, walked out of the ward aud gave a
clear account of the accident he had met
with. He had, in fact, recovered his mind,
though he suffered greatly from the exter
nal injuries to bis scalp. This case is not
alone of its kind. Some physicians have
tried to raise the question of the application
of sudden aud violent shaking of the head
to the treatment f insanity ; but, as the
question of the , dose is one of great diffl.
oulty, this heroic method remains optional
with the patientB themselves.

A Disappointed Bridegroom.
AIUUDAL couple from one of our
neighboring towns, recently mar
ried, went to the thriving city of Kprlng
fleld, Ohio, on their bridal tour, They
arrived at the Lagomla House, in that
place, about 9 o'clock in the evening.
The bride waited in the Indies' reception
room while her liege lord went to the of
fice to register his name and for the
first time to write with it "and wife."
The polite clerk was notified of the fact
that he was a fresh and newly-married
man, and the bridal chamber waa ac
cordingly assigned them. The groom re
tired from the office accompanied by a
Bervant, and with his bonnle bride retir
ed to the bridal roero. In about half an
hour the agreeable clerk of the 'Logonda'
was surprised to eee the groom walking
Into the office and still more surprised to
Bee that he deliberately walked to an
easy chair In a dark corner, with a dis
appointed but a determined sort of an
Blr. The clerk waited for some minutes,
all the time wondering If there could so
soon have been a family row. He
watched the young husband closely en
deavoring to discover by his actions the
cause of him so soon and suddenly retir
ing from the chamber which contained
his fair young bride. But his watching
was in vain. There eat the groom In
the shadow of a pillar, quiet and calm.
Finally the clerk's curiosity became bo
great that he determined to Interview
the young man about the matter. Ap
proaching In a respectful manner he
said : .
" My friend, pardon me, but I don't
understand why you have so soon left
the bridal chamber. Has anything seri
ous happened V
'iOh, no," said the young fellow;
" Jennie Is an awful modest girl, and
she said she couldn't retire as long as I
was in the room. I told her that she
would have to get used to it sooner or
later, and that Bhe might as well com
mence the first night. But she said
no,' and pleaded so hard and with
such love looks that I couldn't re
fuse her, and at her own request left the
room and came down here."
" Well what are you going to do
said the curious clerk. " You don't pro
pose to sit here all night, do you V"
"Noslieel You bet I don't. Jennie
promised that as Boon as she got un
dressed she would turn the gas low aud
then ring the bell. As soon as I heard
it I was to go to my room. I will sit
here, and If you will please tell me when
the bell to my room rings I will be much
obliged, and I will go up." '
" All right," suld the amused clerk ;
" when your bell rings I will tell you."
Time rolled on and an hour passed.
The young fellow anxiously came to the
desk and inquired over and over again
"If his bell liudn't rung," and when
the auswer came, " No Blr 1" he looked
troubled and anxious. Finally he set
tled himself lu an easy chair, and Boon
the clerk heard his sonorous snores.
The night passed and daylight came but
the bell of the bridal chamber had not
so much as tinkled once all night. At
0 o'clock the daylight clerk came on
duty, and the groom who had been
sleeping soundly was awakened. He
rubbed his eyes yawned and stretched
himself, and in a confused manner, ex
' Where am Ii"'
Then recollecting the condition of af
fairs he angrily said :
" Look here, Mr. Clerk, why in the
devil didn't you waken me up when
that 'ar bell rang V" ,
" Well sir, it didn't ring."
"Didn't ling V"
"No sir, not once."
"What? not once durlmt the whole
" Well, that is dam strange. By
gosh, I don't understand this business.
I'll go to the room and see Jennie, and
find out what in the devil she meant by
keeping me down here all night," and
off he started.
At 12 o'clock be entered the dining
room with the bright-eyed Jennie on
his arm, and they eat down to dinner.
After the repast Jennie went to her
room, and her handsome and now hap
py husband repaired to the office " to
explain things to the clerk."
"Look here," he said, in a confiden
tial tone, "don't say anything about this
to any one, for Jennie feels awful bad
about It; but the truth is, she went to
turn the gas down low and turned it
out. This frightened her bo that she
jumped Into bed and pulled the covers
over her bead, and waa afraid to get up
again to ring the bell ; aud besides, she
didn't know where the bell was. Poor
girl she nearly cried ber eyes out about
it. I didn't like it very much at first,
but then she felt so awfully sorry, and
was bo sweet and nice, and made it all
right, you know ; bo I don't blame her.

would rather stay at home evenings."
"Btayat homeV Why, I think the
evenings are the lonrsomest part of the
day. Father always takes a .newspaper
and sits and rends until he Is ready to go
to bed, and hardly ever speaks a word
unless he tells Johnny and me to shut
up and not make so much noise; Just
because we try to have a little fun,
while mother Bits and darusstocklngs.or

" Yes, I'll come, Just to see what makes
you think it so pleasant at home."

chair towards him, he thought to him

and his eyes bo full of tears, that It made
every one laugh to look at him.

next evening, went home and went to

How Man and Wife met After Twenty Year
ONE of those strange episodes in hu
man life which makes us sometimes
wonder at " the eternal fitness of things"
occurred last night at the Valb jo junc
tion. The tide being low on the arrival
of the Contra Costa, passengers for Val
lejo were compelled to make quite a de
scent from the wharf to the boat, and.
the ladies required the aid of the gentle
men present. A Mr. G., a grain specu
lator was doing the ageeable iu this re
spect, and one of the last ladles to de
scend was overburdened with a few
bundles, which he took charge of, and.
accompanied the lady to the cabin,
where they sat and engaged in conver
sation. The subject finally touched up
on the nativity of each, when It was
found that they were both from the
same town In Kentucky. The fact then
made each other more communicative,
when he enquired her name, which want
given aa Mrs. G. Immediately the mart
grew pale and excited and asked :
" You had a duughter had you not?"
" I did," she responded. " Pray how
did you know that ?"
" Is that daughter living ?"
" Bhe Is, and at present on a visit to a
frlend at Vallejo, where I am now go
ing." " Merciful heavens !" he gasped. "My
"Blr, what do you mean V said the
" Mean V" be excitedly replied. " Mean,
why I mean that that daughter i my
own child, and you are my wife!"
Almost overpowered at this confession
she plied him with questions and to
every one he returned a correct answer,
when she was convinced that the man
was. really ber husband, from whom sho
had been separated twenty years. It
seems that the twain were married at
Paris, Ky., in 185S, and in thirteen
months afterwards he went to Liverpool
on business. The vessel on which bo
took passage was wrecked and all ou
board were supposed to have perished.
The news coming lo the young wife's
ears she was utterly prostrated and was
ordered to California by her physician.
Arriving here she took up her residence
In Los Angeles. The husband waa res
cued from the wreck by a fishing vessel
and taken to some remote foreign port,
where he was thrown upon a bed of
sickness, which lasted some- fifteen
months. In the mean time he bad writ
ten repeatedly to bis wife, but received
In his despair he concluded to risk a
journey across the Atlantio. Feeble a
be was he shipped before the mast on a
sailing vessel, and In due time arrived
In New York. From there he wrote
three times to his wife, but received no
answer. Almost frenzied at the thought
that she might be dead, and being with
out funds, be " faced" his fare to Ken
tucky,and shortly after arri ved In Paris.
Inquiries throughout the town assured
him that his wife bad disappeared a year
or so before, no one knew whither.
Borne said she had gone in search of her
husband, others that ohe might be dead
and others that she bad gone to Califor
nia. He sought the old family physi
cian, but he had left the town some time
before. Mr. G. then went to work as'
Louisville and made enough to bring;
him to California a year after his arrival
In Kentucky. He searched everywhere
for his absent wife, but without success
and finally gave her up as dead, and she
also bad mourned for his death. Neither
however, had married again, and last
evening on board the Contra Costa was
the first intimation either bad that the
other was In existence.
The now happy couple arrived here
last night, and to the surprise of the
friends of the lady she introduced her
husband, from whom she bad been.
separated twenty years. But imagine
his unutterable surprise and joy whe:
the mother led into the parlor a beauti
ful young lady, his own daughter,
whom he bad not seen since she was a
babe. Father,motber and child will leave
to-morrow for Ban Francisco, where Mr.
G. who Is now a comparatively wealthy
man, has his buines-.- ami where they
will liereafter reside. Vallrjn Chro7Mc,
