A third time the order was repeated, accompanied with the threat that if the obstinate sinner did not obey* he would be handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. The strangej took no more heed than before, so at last the official, completely losing hiB temper, 'pulled the cigar out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away. This violent act produced no...

The morale of the New York Bit, seem to be about like the morals of Colonel Byrne, no better and no wor#?. Colonel Byrne, a Kentuckian, de fended a man for murder. It was te«- '• tifled that this man murdered a w» man on the night of August 20. Two or three witnesses saw the deed. It' was committed under the milky lisfet of a full moon. The witnesses were able to iden-' . tify the defendant on account of the brilliance of the moohlight. The de fendant could not prove an alibi, and things looked pretty 'bad for him. But, at this point Colonel Bjh'ne pro- _ duced an almanac showing that oa - the night in question there had been no moon whatever. Thereupon a great laugh resounded through the court room, and the defendant was speedily acquitted. "Colonel," said tho defendant, after wards, "how much do I owe you?" "You owe me," the Colonel an...

MARRYING RECORDS. Women, as a rule, are more given to the marrying habit than men, though no woman has reached the world's marrying record made by George Vitzoff, the notorious bigam ist, whose marriages totalled over 100. In one week he went through eight ceremonies. Almost as strange a case was that' of a Russian woman condemned to Siberia not long ago. She had been married to twenty husbands and had treated' them all alike, running away trom each in turn and taking all their portable property with her: She was a most attractive woman, and highly educated. A woman named Schmeyer, of ennsylvania, was sent to prison not long ago for bigamy. Though she was only twenty-seven years old, she had married twelve men in ten years. Her only comment in court was that she liked them all. A IJoer woman named De Beers, whose sixth husband died recently, is the prqud mother and stepmother of forty-nine children, while her grand children number 270. Four of her six husbands were widowers, all wit...
