I ain't the man what seen the man that saw the ghost, mind you. I saw it myself. The story a:in't very romantic, but it's queer, an' I'll tell it to you." And the man behind the stove re-lit his pipe and started off. " In 1878 I was in the oil regions of Penn. sylvania. I was speculating a little, and had done well, and I knew the country pretty thoroughly. I was on my way from Potrolia, in Butler County, to Fairview. In the party was Sam Shryock, two other experts, and myself. We were going to see a new 300-harrel well near Fairview that had just been struck by Green, the oil king. "'1What wells is them?

Capital Punishment by Electricity. There iV now being exhibited at Leipzig and aplrarltus for putting criminals to death by electricity. So long as it is found necessary to retain capital punishment upon our statne iooks it may well be that the electric method is the most merciful and least repulsive pro ccss that could be devised for carrying the sentlelce into effect. In this apparatus be hind the chair in which the condemned is to take his seat-and by means of which, aswe need not explain in detail, his body is placed in circuit with a powerful coil--theres.tands a conventional figure of Justice with bandaged eyes, holding the balance in her left hand and the sword in her right.

HUMOR. Humors of Examinat.!or.--A ::'?" sttjool examination paperd is often more. amusing than an evening with Mark Twain. The examinations are to a certain extint, parrot-like and mechanical performances. bhe teachecrs get to know by experience the nature of the questions, and the children are ground up nad "coached" accordingly. Tie result is often very funny. "A famine in the land,' accordin r to one brilliant youth, "is what made the Tower oft Pissa lean."

ANOTHER STUDY IN ADVERTISEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 6 July 1894

ANOTHEYR STUDY IN ADVERTIS IIENTS'. SE[AT one finds least often in the pages of the newspapers now is the gush of sentiment. For that we must turn to the leading articles on interesting criminals. Now and again, however, the Agony Column does rise from the sordid to the sentimental, or at least the anmorous. In the following, for instnalce, which appeared the other day in a nlorningl paper, there is quite a mistress's-eyebrow touch : "'TIS STRANGE.-There are only two places in, the world, where you are. ,nd whelre you are not.

The outlaws were surprised at the queer action of the man, but without the least hesitation they followed him into the house. "If this is a plot your life will answer-for it," Howe whispered to him. " There is no plot about it. I want Syou to help me if I help you, that's all," Broadbent replied. Without waiting for further talk he laid out food for the hungry bush rangers, who attacked it in a half savage fashion, but not before they made Broadbent partake of a portion. Their reception was so extraordinary that they suspected treachery, and a suspicion dawned upon them that the food might be poisoned. This was soon to be dispelled, and the reason for the friendly hospitality shown them made plain. " I don't give something for ...

SHORT STORY. *eBCtFfALO BILTLS" FIRST FATAL SHOT. After having for a long period acquiesced - the pictures of the noble red Indian, and his prairie and woodland scenes, with which Fenimore Cooper and his imitators made us familiar, the Old World has grown apt to believe with as much whale-hearted credu lity in the new presentment by present-day tourists in the Western United States. These rightly show the boundless sea of verdure of " The Prairie" cut up into gigantic farms, tilled by steam and electricity, and armies of men; the mystericrs Lone Mountains of Mayne Reid swarming with miners, Chinese, and "Digger" Indians, and burrowed with mines, in the depths of which magnificent mo'dern machinery toils like the buried Cycnops; the great River of Gerstmcker's romances a mere highway for steam tugs towing miles of barges ; the beaten tracks of multitudinons 'uffalo herds raked by the bone-hunter that tnife handles of "the best African ivory" may be sold cheaply in European marts; the...

CASUAL, JOTTINGS. [By FLYAWAY.] Quite a thrill of pleasurable excite ment has pervaded the breasts of the benedicts of the Goulburn Valley this last week or two. It has nothing to do this time with thie brass band, or the gutter, or the swamps, or the fogs, or even the excitement of the approaching shire council election; it is a feeling of genuine unalloyed joy that not even Wednesday week's victory in the foot ball field could approach in tremulous ness of realization-I mean the knowledge that we have now established among us one who by her magic power opens wide to the lady of fashion (and who is there of us that does not wish his daintier and more extravagant half to be considered a lady of fashion ?) the realm of all that is stylish and enchant ing in feminine attire.
