The total debt is now $1,398,198,281. The fund for General Hancock's widow has not quite stopped growing, and it now amounts to nearly §50, 000. With decrease of nearly $S0,000, 000 in exports and an increase of $32,000, 000 in imports for the year ending April 30, it does not seem that the trade balances of this country are in a condition to defy criticism. A New York congressman is charged with paying a Washington reporter $1 ,000 for writing him a speech which would have been dear at five dollars. The bright fellows of the newspaper profession add to their regular income from this business.

#7 .| [v. I A MAN OVERBOARD. BY AN OLD MARINER. The truth of my story I can pvovo by the captain and crew of the ship Lo­ tus, sailing out of Liverpool. I was a foremast hand aboard, and along in the sixties we made a voyage around Cape Horn and up the Chilian coast to Valparaiso. That's a long stretch from Liverpool, but all went well, and when we had rounded the Horn wo had not yet lost so much as a square foot of sail, nor had sickness nor death come aboard. We were, as was afterward told me, about thirty-five miles to the west of Chiloe Island, which is about half way from the Horn to Valparaiso, when the wind failed us one morning, and we lay rising and falling on a sea as smooth as your hand. To the south­ west, as I heard the mate say, after he had been aloft with tlic glass, he had made out what he took to be a dismast­ ed hulk, but as she was so far away the captain received the report with little or no interest. The calm lasted until about 6 o'clock in the afternoon, when ...

Business failures continue to in crease slowly, but they are mostly so small and scattered that little uneasi ness is felt because of their number. Most of the railways in Russia fail to do a profitable business, and there is an annual deficit of about $25,000, 000 as the result of operating the 15, 000 miles of road in a country with nearly 100,000,000 people.

Without one word, one act, the khowledgehad this day come to them that they were dearer to each other than the laws of man would allow. He spoke. "You think I am a good man?" "I do—the best, grandest, noblest!" "And you know there never will be any happiness for us together?" "Nor apart!" "After to-day we must never meet again!" She raised her streaming eyes to him..

t) $ A 'V MANHOOD'S YESTERDAY. I'm sad to-day, And so my lay shall be of boyhood—yesterday? When I a child Went romping wild In woodland paths where sunshine smiled. Among the herds And merry birds I wandered with my gladsome words, Aud all day long I warbled song To nature and her kindred throng. With tousled hair And feet all bare I gathered flowers everywhere, And was not shorn For then no thorn Had from my cheeks the dimples torn. I gamboled on The velvet lawn At evening's tide and day's first dawn 1 danced and sang Till household rang With laughter at my bantering. I climbed the trees And chased the bees From stealing honey there with ease 1 planted flowers Through all the hours And watched them nurtured by the showers. Thus in a haze My boyhood days Have passed, and I can only gaze, Hut never see Their rhapsody Save now and then iu memory. For wrinkles now Have plowed my brow, And weighty care has shown me how It leaves a trace On boyish face As age comes on to take its place....
