PREVALENT POETRY. A wandering tiribe, called the Siouxe, Wear moccasins, having no shiouxs. They are made of buckskin, With the fleshy side in, Embroidered with beads of bright hyiouxs. When out on the war-path, the Siouxa March single fie-never by tiouxs And by "blazing" the trees Can return at their ease, And their way through the forest ne'er liouxe. All new-fashiobed boats he eachiouxn, And uses the birch-bark caniouxe; These are handy and light, And inverted at night,, Give shelter from storms and from dyouxs. The principal food of Siouxs Is Indian maize, which they briouxs And hominy make, Or mix in a cake And eat it with pork, as they chionus. Now doesn't this spelling look cylourious? , 'Tis enough to make anyone fyiouxrious! So a word to the wise? Pray our language revise With orthography not so injiouxrions. -Scribner. FLOATING FANCIES, An old adage says that "courtesy opens many doors." true, ,and it's infernal dis courtesy doesn't shut them again. In reply to the questio...

pnESO1'AL AM.) G.±NE AL. prnsident Arthur's address at Yorktown wus greeted with cheers. The President is enough of a politician to make his speech short. The civilized world appears shocked at the discovery that the inhabitants of one of the South Sea Islands have been capturing white men and holding them as slaves. Grant has at last succeeded, through the friendship of Arthur, in working in his per sonal friend, Colonel Webster, to the lucra tive office of Register of Wills, from which he was removed by general Garfield on the very morning the fatal shot was fired by Guiteau. Commissioner of Pensions Dudley says that the next fiscal year the pension pay ments are likely to reach $70,000,000, and the deficiency this year will be $20,000,000, and everybody is astounded at the growth of the claims. A. recent visitor to Longfellow says that tile poet is not so white from age as his por traits represent him. His hair and beard have dark lines, and his mustache has tawny amber shade of ...

PAPER TIMBER. A New Invention WVhereby Lunaber ji Otfade of Paper. The Northwestern Lumberman says there can be no question that the straw lumber is admir.ably adapted to many kinds of finish ing work, barrels, tables and counter tops, fine doors and ornamental work, and we are assured that it can be produced and sold in competition with the finer grades of pine, or in competition with wide walnut, at about one half of the price of the latter. The stand ard manufacture is in widths of thirty-two inches, a length of twelve feet, and a thick ness corresponding with that of surface boards. These dimensions may be varied to suit such orders as may be given, and em brace any length, width or thickness. Un like lumber, however, narrower widths are the most costly. The straw lumber may be ripped with the hand-saw, buz-saw; may be run through the sticker for the manufacture of molding, and takes a nail or screw about as well as oak, It may be finished with varnish or paint, and is susceptib...

HER PICTURE. Yes, I'm going to burn it. Her picture, Which held in a dainty gilt frame Has been on my mantel a fixture, Goes under It, into the flame, And one last farewell look I am taking, If ever I loved her 'tis o'er. And yet at my heart is an aching. To think that I shall see this no more. In this picture how well I behold her, Her bright eyes and pretty sweet face, Her white bust and one dimpled thoulder Half lost in a soft cloud of lace. The other plu1mp shoulder just glancing Through rich chestnut tresses is seen, By Jove tis a vision entracing ! No wonaer they call her the -queen," Andall the young fellows adore her And some not so young, too, maybe And he that has not knelt before her, Is thought an eccentric. Ah, me! It really seems wicked and cruel, To make of this rare gem of art, That once I so prized, merely fuel. I turn the card o'er and my heart Is steeled. There is written: "Thine. ever, With love your own Dashie." That line Seals the doom of the picture. It never ...

TWO WOMEN. A grandma sits in her great armchair; Balmy sweet is the soft spring air. Through the latticed, lilac-shadowed pane She looks to the orchard beyond the lane. And she catches the gleam of a woman's dress, As it flut ters about in the wind's caress. "That child is glad as the day is long Her lover is comiing, her life's a song!" Up from the orchard's flowery bloom Floats fragrance faint to the darkening room Where grandma dreams, till a tender grace And a softer light steal into her face. For once again she is young and fair, And twining roses in her hair. Once again, blithe as the lark above, She is only a girl, and a girl in love. The years drop from her their weary pain; She is clasped in her lover's arms again! The last faint glimmers of daylight die, Stays tremble out of the purple sky Ere Dora flits up the garden path, Sadly afraid of grandma's wrath. With rose-red cheeks aRd flying hair She nestles down in the old arm-chair. "Grandma, Dick says, may we-mayl-" The fal...

When he reached the spot where the man had fallen his teet struck something. lie stooped and found it was a leathern pock et-book. Thrusting it into his pocket, he ran towards the cover of the trees at the side of the park, and soon found the spot where the wall overlooked the cottage. He mounted it and dropped to the ground. The next moment he was in Mother Blenkin's garden, and was about to enter the rear door when he was SEIZED BY TWO MEN. "You are arrested for murder," one of them. said, and he was forthwith secured and taken to the cage. There he was searched, and on him was found the papers taken from Sir George Blamfylde's desk, and a pocket-book bearing the Baronet's name and crest and containing £2,095 in Bank of England notes.
