Kissing at the Church Door. We have no objection to the ladies kissing each other as mruch as they please when it does not discommtode others, because we know they love to kiss or be kissed; Lut we do object to three or four planting themselves in the church door on Sunday morning and kissing, hugging and giggling for ten or fifteen minutes, whilst the balance of the eogregation are compelled to wait and look on. Do try and wait until you get outside the door, or keep your seats until the balance of the congregation pass out, and then kiss as much as you please. We may be mistaken, but we sometimes think you do it just to show the young men how sweetly you can kiss and make them wish they were the hap py recipients of yonr favors. We are very found of kissing pretty Girls with clean faces, but we prefer it a little more private. We don't like to kiss a pair of lips that have been slobbered over by twenty other persons ii as many as conds; but give us a pair of pouting rose tinted li...

THE CREOLES OF LOUISIANA; Or, Reminiscences of an Old Acadian. BY FELIX VOORIIIES. ClIAPTER L It seems but yesterday-and, yet, sixty years have passed away since the days of my boyhool. How flee tng ime! How rapidly does old age creep upon us with its infirmities! The curling smoke dispelled by the paseingwind; the waters that run by, murnauring softly in the gentle stream, leave as deep a mark of teir passage as do the fleeting days of man. I was then twelve years old, and I can yet picture in my mind the noble sim plicity of my father's house, so neatly built, so capacious and airy. The style of architecture in those days was not as gandy and as showy as that in our pro gresive age, but it was in accord with the plainness of measure of our Acadian fathers. Their dwellings had a smiling and inviting appearance no longer to be tound nowadays in our houses so quaint and extravagant in their build. They were as large and as grand as their hos pitality was boundless; for no people were...

FATE OF A MORMON GIRL THE STORY OF MARY LEE AND OF HlER TWO LOVERS. She Wanted the Gentile, but the Mormon Charch Deslgned Her for Elder ('ratty. Jeant'no VALLar, Utsh.-Sixteen years ago Samuel Bates, a Mormon, then the pe aitir of two wives, Ann and Jane, tile latter being childless, took Mary Lee, an orphan, to bring up accordingu to the rites of the Church of the Latter Day Saints. As Ann had many children to comfort her the babe was placed in charge of Jane, a devout Mormon, her self born in the faith. Mary Lee's Imrents were from England. Her mother was a delicate little woman, well remem berel by many here as a tearful and un happy penmm. Times were hard with them wlhen they first appeared here, and they grew harder for some reason. Just as her husbalnd was about to take a second wife, evidently against the wishes of the comlanion of his youth, he was killed in a snow slide, and three months after that his widow died, some said of a broken heart, leaving little Mary alone in t...

T"HECEOLE8OF LOUISIANA; Or, Reminiscences of an Old Acadian. BY FELIX VOORHIIES. CIlHAPTER I. When ehe spoke of Acadia her face brightened, her eyes beamed with a strange brilliancy, and she kept us spell bound, so eloquent and yet so sad were her words and then tears ran down her aged cheeks and her voice trembled with emotion. We wondered at her sadness as we knew that she lived happy under our father's root and lacked none of the comforts of life; we knew that the least of her wishes was attended to, and that her children vied with each other in their endeavors to please her. Ah! we were then mere children, without any knowledge of the human heart. Grim experlenee had not yet taught us its sor rowful lessons, and we knew not that a remembrance has sometimes the bitter nses of gall! and that tear alone will wash away that bitterness. How well I remember-seated in her rocking chair, she clasped her hands on her knee and leaned her body slightly forward. Her hair slivered with age c...
