MARK TWAIN ON MILITARY SCIENCE Response to a Toast. To the regular toast, "The benefit of ju dicious training," Mr. Samuel L. Clemens, (Mark Twain,) responded as follows : "Let but the thoughtful civilian instruct the soldier in his duties, and the victory is sure. "-Martin Farquhar Tupper on the Art of War. MR. CHAIRMAN : I gladly join with my fellow townsmen in extending a hearty wel come to these illustrious Generals and war scarred soldiers of the Republic. This is a proud day for us, and, if the sincere desire of our hearts has been fulfilled, it has not been an unpleasant day for them. I am in full accord, Sir, with the sentiments of the toast, for I have always maintained with en thusiasm that the only wise and true way is for the soldier to fight the battle and the un prejudiced civilian to tell him how to do it. Yet when I was invited to respond to this toast, and furnish this advice and instruction I was almost as much embarrassed as I was gratified, for I could bring to t...

GOOD ADVICE. It thou dost bid thy girl farewell But for une hour though that farewell may be, Press thou her palm, old man; how canst thou tell ltow far from thee F ate or caprice may lead her feet, Ere thy next interview. Girls have been known To lightly turn the corner of the street, And days have grown To months, and months to lagging years, Before they looked into loving eyes again That is in yours-and we have other fears, But can't explain.

CHRiISI' SENTENCE OF DEATH. An Alleged Copy of the Most Memorable Judicial Sentence Ever Pronounced. The following is a copy of the most me morable judicial sentence which has ever been pronounced in the annals of the world, namely, that of death against the Savior, with the remarks which the Journal LeDroit has collected, and the knowledge of which must be interesting in the highest degree to every Christian. It is word for word as fol lows : Sentence pronounced by Pontius Pilate, intendant of the Lower Province of Galilee, that Jesus of Nazareth shall suffer death by the cross. In the,;sventeenth year of the reign of the Emleror Tiberius, and on the twenty fourth day of the month of March, in the most holy City of Jerusalem, during the pon tificate of Annas and Caiaphas.

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. At the last census of the German Empire, taken December 1, 1880, the population was 45,149,172, an increase of five millions since the census of 1871. The Republicans of the Second Congres sional District nominated ex-Governor Nel son Dingley, Sr., for Congress, in place of Frye chosen United States Senator. The Czar still keeps himself a close pris oner at Tatschina. Sappers and miners have dug up every rod of ground within a mile of the palace in search for the mines. The water used is brought from St. Petersburg. The Navy Department decides to substi tute shoulder-straps for the shoulder-knots worn by all officers of the grade of ensign. Officers of this grade will also be allowed to wear chapeaux and epaulettes rn dress oc casions. All roads lead to Rime. It was discovered in the Cleveland Convent on the other day that Secretary Windom, whose financial achievements were the subject of a eulogy from J, hn Sherman,- was an Ohio boy.

The little boat broke fronm its mooring And leaped in the dark. rolling main ; And from over the sea His voice camie to me- "i'll come to my sweetheart again."

FLOATING FANCIES. A grass widow isn't green by any means. A western editor wrote an article on "Rhu barb," and the compositor made pi of it. "Will the coming man fly ?" He probably will when the coming woman gets after him. Adam carried the vote of the first ward, city of Eden, in his vest pocket.-Ex. And where did he carry his vest pocket? "Is your daughter at home, Mr. Brusk ?" "Yes, sir; and so is her mother." Callow said he'd "call some other day," but he never' did. Cucumbers are only thirty-five cents each in Yonkers. That's cheap enough for the ucumber, but it's the funeral that costs like hunder. Drinking beer may quench the thirst, but it will not refresh the memory. That deli cate matter is one of the unpleasant duties of the bar-tender. It, is stated by eminent naturalists that the very rats come creeping out of the woodpile and laugh like demons when a woman tries to saw a stick of wood.

A STORY OF THE OLDEN TIME. An ancient manuscript, damp and mold (Found in the ruins of Troy, I'm told;, Contains in its pages yellow and old The curious tale which I now unfold. 'Tis written in language quaint, unique, A mixture of Hebrew, Gaelic and Greek, With a smattering here and a sprinkling there Of Turkey Gobbler and Russian Bear, The work of translating it was immense, Involving unlimited care and expense, But well and faithfully was it done, And here, of the many strange tales is one: About three thousand years ago (As the date of the manuscript goes to show), There dwelt in the village of Hoptoki A. beautiful maiden, Miss Ososhy. Fair she was as the radiant dawn; Lithe and graceful as bounding fawn; Eyes of blue and teeth like pearls, A wealth of lovely golden curls In fact, a paragon of girls. Perfection was barely out of her reach, For she'd an impediment in her speeeh Not a stammer or stutter, but stranger still, Her tongue ran loosely against her will. Whatever she sai...

STAR ROUTES., Puck Explains the Dorsey Combinations by a Few Abstracts, So much curiosity has been expressed in regard to the actual terms and conditions of the Star Route Contracts that we feel we shall be doing our readers a favor by giving them a brief abstract of some of the more important contracts supposed to have been sublet by the "Dorsey Combination." We therefore present, in condensed form, the facts in several interesting cases. A brief examtiination of these will conclusively prove to the unbiased reader that Messrs. Dorsey and Brady are much maligned men, whose services in behalf of the country have met only with the inadequate reward of contume ly and slander. The following condensed statements may be relied upon implictly. They have been carefully edited by a distinguished politician, who has omitted all irrelevant matter which might tend to prejudice the public mind against the distinguished patriots in charge of the Star Service."

GREEK BRI4G.AR DS. SuperstltIon and Heartlesness of the Band of Aristides. The band of Greek brigands by whom b' r. Suter was recently captured were Christ ians, that is, they belonged to the Greek church, and no less than seven had lbeen in the Greek army in different grades, and had deserted therefrom. Notwithstanding that every day of their lives is passed in perpetrat ing the most heinous crimes, yet these men never begin a meal without crossing them selves, and saying their prayers at night. On the Greek Easter day Mr. Suter was sur prised to find that each had his candle light cd, and after presenting one to the prisoner they would not begin to eat till they. had crossed themselves three times, each time the chief saying, "Christ is risen," and the re mainder answering, 'Truly he is risen," con cluding the ceremony by kissing each other all around, including Mr. Suter. This is an ancient custom. Every brigand wears a charm, consisting of either a bit of blue glass or red silk,...

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. Advices have been received from Algeria that the French, who are pursuing the re volted tribes, defeated them, inflicting heavy losses. Mary Anderson has bought a five-story brown stone front in New York. Mr. Mary Anderson ought to be a very happy man when he goes into the bower she has shaded for him. The 26,000 Americans who will visit Eu rope this summer will spend more money abroad in three months than the 200,000 im migrants to this country this year will spend in ten years. Since the close of the war the Republic has wiped out one-third of its national debt and cut down its interest charge two thirds. Every other National debt in the world has increased in the same interval. Gen. Forgemol issued an address to the tr ops of the French Tunis exhibition on the eve of the withdrawal of the whole or greater part of them from the Regency con gratulating them on their discipline and de votion.

A NAPOLEON OF FINANCE. An English View of Jay Gould and His I Operations. The London PaUll Malt Gazette, in a recent issue, says : "There is now going on in Am- I erica a development of the power of an in- t dividual capitalist which is well worth atten- r tion as a feature in modern society. The f tendency of capital in that country to roll up t with extraordinary rapidity has often been c noticed, and nowhere else could the collossal I fortunes of Astor, Vanderbilt or A. T. Stew- t art have been accumulated in the lifetime of 1 one man. But the operations of Mr. Gould i are of far greater extent than those of any i previus capitalist, and the movement of which he is the head is so clearly a portion t of a general evolution that we on this side of c the Atlantic may notice his course with pro- - fit to ourselves. Mr. Jay Gould is chifily t known here as one of the famous Erie tii- t umvirate-Fish and Lane being the others- i who carried on a successful war in shares by the aid of a...

THE SWEET SEXA, Opposites in Marriage--The Mysterious Bench Woman.--Eow Hindoo Women are made Straight, etc. Theodore Parker wrote: "Young people marry their opposites in temperament and general character, and such marriages are generally good ones. They= do it instinct ively. The young man does not say, "My black eyes require to be wed with blue, and my over-vehemence requires to be a little modified with somewhat of dullness and re serve.' When these opposites come together to be wed they do not know it, but each one thinks- the other just like himself. Old peo pie never marry their opposites; they marry their similars, and from calculation. Each of these two arrangements is very proper. In their long journey these opposites will fall out by the way a great many times, and charm the other back again, and by and by they will be agreed as to the place they will go to, and the road they will go by, and both become reconciled. The man will be nobler and larger for being associated wit...
