I call it a street simply out of complimentit being in reality only an alley that hud started out to be a street and finding itself too narrow by half had stopped at the end of two blocks and never gone any furtherlived a shabby old man, called by his neighbors "Mr. Waste Paper," and by rude boys and girls of the neighborhood "Old Miser" and "Queer Eyes." He bought and sold waste paper, and all the four rooms in his househe was the only one in the street that occupied a whole house and was looked upon with great respect on that accountin fact, I think if he had only rented a room or two liKe the rest of the inhabitants he would have been ""Waste Paper Jonn," instead of "Mr. Waste Paper"were almost filled with it.

The Princeton Union. R. C. DUNN, Publisher. Terms$1.50 per year in advance. NEWS OF THE WEEK. KiiSllslt t-Sralii Markets. The Mark Lane Express says: Wheat catting is now becoming general, and, judg ing from recent agricultural advices, -wheat has improved -wonderfully in many parts of the country. The sunshine has repaired the injury caused by the rainfall of May to an un looked for extent, excepting in districts where the drought was severe, causing premature ripening. The prospects for the barley crop are variable and generally unpromising, par ticularly on high lands. The yield "will cer tainly be light. Oats and beans promise fairly. The grain trade in London and the provinces is devoid of any special feature but prices are well maintained considering the proximity of the harvest. There is an under current of steadiness observable and the opin ion generally obtains that whether bought for consumption or speculation, wheat.at present prices cannot do much harm to millers or spec...

Two Poetic Curiosities. By first reading the following lines seperately, as though they were two verses, and then reading all the way across, they express opposite meaning: "I always did Intend Single mv life to spend It much delightcth me To live from woman free The female to my mind, I ne'er expect to tind A bachelor to live. My mind I freely give, To lake to mo a wife Would grieve my very life. To think upon a bride, I can't be satisfied. The joy I can't express, So Rrent in singleness. 1 never could Agree. A mairied man to be." A similar result will follow in the verses below by first reading the Hues in regular order and then coupling the first and third, and second aud fourth lines: 'The man must lead a happy life, Who is directed by a wife Who's free from matrimonial chains, Is sure to sutler from his pains. "Adam could find no real peace Until ho saw a woman's face When Eve was given for a mate, Adam was in a happy state. 'Tis in the female heart appear Unwavering faith and ...

A Bachelor's Apology. Her eyes were bright, her. figure slight. And light as any fairy Her nose was heavenward enclined Her manners sweet an airy. Her mouth was like a rosebud Her voice like any linnet Her head was little, and I fear ad very little in it. But then so artless was her art My heart could not resist her And added to her other charms, 8he had a pretty sister. They bloomed like any double roBO, They blushed a double oink One graced the name of Laura The other, Kate, I think, When left alone witn Laura, Love urged his soft dictate And in sweet Laura's absence, I doted moreon Kate. And thus to choose between them 'Twere treason to decide, Because I had been happiest With either for my bride. To filch one flower, and leave her Companion all alone, To pine in single sadness Would need a heart of stone. And that's the reson, Ladies, I'm still your partisan, For being single-hearted, I rest a single man. Chamber's Journal. Humorous Items. A share-holderA plow. Tho first tannerT...

1 Meadow Talk. A bumble-bee, yellow as gold, Sat perched on a red-elover top, When," a grasshopper, wiry and old. Came along with a skip and a hop. "Good-morrow!" cried he, "Mr. Bumble Bee! You seem to have come to a stop." "We people that work," Said the bee with a jerk, "Find a benefit sometimes in stopping Only insects like you, Who have nothing to do. Can keep up a perpetual hopping." The grasshopper paused on his way, And thoughtfully hunched up his knees "Why trouble this sunshiny day," Quoth he with reflections like these? I follow the trade for which I was made, We all can't be wise bumble-bees. "There's a time to be sad, And a time to be glad A time both for working and stopping For men to make money, For you to make honey, And for me to do nothing but hopping." Caroline Leslie, Si.

The Princeton Union. R. C. DUNN, Publisher. Terms$1.50 per year indvance. NEWS OF THE WEEK. Hark Ian* HMIMV. The Mark Lane .Express, in review of the British corn trade the past week, says: "Wheat cutting has commenced a week earlier this season than last year, thanks to the weather. In spite of complaints of biight and defective ears, the advices iu the main are &at- isfactory, and unless there should be an unex expected deficiency the crop will be a fair average onethat is, about thirty bushels to the aere. Barley has improved a little, owing to recent showers, and where early sown on good mixed soil the crop promises fairly well but in the eastern counties especially the grain has suffered much from blight and pre mature ripening. The yield in these districts will be poor. Roots are doing well but would be better for more rain, particularly in Scotland, where potatoes and turnips are suf fering for want of moisture. There was very little change in the trade for English wheat,...

The Legend of the Crowned Skull.

This was no other than their approach ing marriage. The Princess had reached her twentieth year, and her prospects pre sented no match more brilliant than one with the gay young Baron, whose wealth, purity of blood, popularity, and future premise were standing themes of conver sation throughout the whole Rhine coun try. As was befitting one so beautiful and beloved, the Princess Amalie had extraor dinary attentions shown her on her birth day. The ancient halls of the castle were made gay with banners and armor and lights and music, aud noble guests, who gave themselves up to the epidemic h'lar ity of the occasion. Every thing wore a holiday aspect, and even the servan...

The Tale or the Terrible Fire. I will tell you the tale of the terrible fire It springs from the earthit is dreadful and dire. In the dark Wintry sky, See the spark Upward fly i See it grow In its frame See it glow Into ilame! See it burning and blazing See it spring into life With a vigor amazing How it longs for the strife! Hear the noise and the rattle How it swells how it grows, Like the crash of a battle, Like the clash of the foes! Sec it rushing and rising and roaring, See it trying to touch a tall star It seems in the sky to be soaring Like a flag of fierce flame from afar, See it turning and burning and braving See it streaming and gleaming and red! Ah! the smoke in the airnow is waving Like a winding-sheet of dull lead. Hear it laugh with wild glee at each futile endeavor To quench or to quell its exuberant force Ii is flaming and free and fantastic forever It delights and exults with no pang of re morse, With no pain, with but passionmad pass ion it quivers With its penno...
