Fifty pounds from that old aunt of hia who died last week. Well, it'll help him to pay off his scores and get a fair start,,, "Scores, indeed," said Mrs. Hale, who, with her daughter Maggie, was busied about the supper.

After a moment'fe scrutiny, the young man sprang from his seat with an in­ voluntary exclamation. "Do you know him?" inquired the "bailiff, quickly. "Know him? No!

Little Falls Transcript. W. M. FULLER, Publisher. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. In May the revenues-of the Federal Government exceeded the expenditures by $16,000,000. Since a Buffalo girl married the President of the United States, the ladies of that breezy city are rated very high. A Buffalo man is suing'an other for $100,000 damages Sustain­ ed by the allegation of his wife's af­ fections. According to the latest reports, the fire insurance companies doing busi­ ness in London have at risk in that city more than $3,700,000,000. In spite of the enormous aggregation of capital and a by no means efficient fire department, the average annual fire loss in London is not very much in excess of the annual average fire loss of Boston, one-tenth as large, and with insurance of $300,000,000. About a century' ago there lived in one of the New England States a wom­ an remarkable in a degraded com­ munity for her depravity and great physical vigor.
