Wanted-A Girl. "I desire to advertise for a girl to do general housework," said a Laramie lady to the manager of an intelligence otlier. "I have had some little trouble and annoyance during the past year, and would like, if I could, to get a good girl who differs in many respects with those I have been wrestling with. Last fall I heard of a good girl who was working for a neighbor of mine, and went to work systematically to get her. I found afterward that it was a put-up job on pme, and the neighbor wanted me to get the girl more out of revenge than anything else. The girl's name was ('leopatra. She wanted twenty-seven dollars per month and tle use of the piano. I was so sure that she was a good girl that I engaged her on th I , out.

I love to have him follow close The onpy I Indite; But bate him, I Imake a slip He does not set it right. I love to help him on to wealth By making copy "fat;" But when he "breaks" a parraph, I must object to that. I love to have him use his brains When working on my "stuff;" But when he guesses I am wrong, And alters, then 't is rough. I love to have him always know Just what I mean to write: It right be guesses, well and good; If wrong, woo to the wight.

Tlresome lasects. The most tiresome insect in existence is probably the ant, although that exas perating pattern of all the virtues is closely rivaled by the coral inseit. Ever since the time of King Solomon, and probably from a still earlier period, solemn and wearisome moralists have urged their fellow-beings to go to the ant, and( learn industry, business habits, an cient and modern languages, and the use of the globes from that wretched little insect. By implication we have all been assured that we are far inferior by nature than the ant, and that we can never become valuable citizens unless we imitate ants. After a few thousand years this sort of thing has become pain fully tiresome. Undoubtedly the ant has its virtues, but after all it is an immense ly overrated insect. It works industri ously, but it also works unaeceassily and in circumstances w hlcprove that it lacks good judgment, 14 cows, or insects to that effect, and mlpplies it self with pure currant-huh co~atry milk, ...

THE, CIIlROMCLE. CriX, - A THE NIGHTT- WIND. Once when the night-wind clapped its wings, And shook the window bars and roof, I hoard the souls of battle kings Drive by in clashing proof? Sometimes, a runic strife it kept, Of winter nights. In eleeted trees; Or underneath the eaves it crept A swarm of murmuring bees. Or, now, wild huntsmen of the air In hollow chase their bugles blew, While swift o'er wood and hill-top bare The shrill-voled quarry liew. Sometimes I heard of lovers lorwn, Safe, under ward of storm and night, To where, in sylvan ldge, there shone A taper kind and bright These things the night-wind used to tell, And still would tell, if I might hear: But sorrow sleeps too sound and well To lend a dreamful ear. -Editis M. Thomas, It Century Mansins, A RATTER OF SENTIENT. Aunt Remember Mordaunt was a queer-looking little body-like a buga boo in the children's nursery-book, "her nose went out and mouth went in."
