' I beg your pardon,' ho said, laying a de taining band on hor arm, as ho spoke and re moving the obnoxious crawler, ' I wished to take off this caterpillar which was almost it your neck.' The young woman stared haughtily and with 1111 air of resentment lit tbe caterpillar wan about to pal's on with no woid of thanks ' If I made a mistake, and you would prefer, to havo the caterpillar replaced, I can easily put it back,' said the gentleman, courteously, nu.it iiiK the action to tbo word.

Thone breeches are costly, and have to serve an indefinite term of years because of that fact. If a man leaves tho regiment before bis are worn out, they are passed on to the next reoruit whom they will fit. It happened that Jenkins had a second-hand (or leg) pair of this sort served out to him when he joined.

It stands, or rather reclines, against the face of the clifi at Point Pinos, in vlonterey County, California, and all who have viowed the wonder declare it to be the moat colossal, ns well as the moat marvellous, freak in natural sculpture in existence. All portions of tho ' head,' except the back (which appears to be ' blocked ' into the metamorphio rocks against which it soems to bo bo naturally reclining), are aB perfect as though fresh from the hands of some giant sculptor. The chin, mouth, nose, eyes, nnd brow are all perfect, aB is also the hair, which appears to be gracefully drawn back from tho forehead. The ears are not so ' true to life' as the other features are, but evon in this reBpect no stretch of the imagination is required in order to see tolerably perfect auricular appendages.

This was the first intimation of what waa coming. A little later, when he visited England, her Majesty showed him further murks of regard. At a ball she presented him with a bouquet. The Prince'a uniform coat had no button hole, but he., gallantly pulled out his penknife and ripped a slit in the oloth, where the boquet found a secure resting place for the remainder of the evening. At laat Queen Victoria ' came to the point.' She aaked the Prince how he had enjoyed hia visit to England. 'Very much,' he replied.
