PEARLIE HAS GONE AWAY. How still and lonesome the house is, The sunshine looks paler to-day, And the wind round the corner is whispering: "Pearlie has gone away." No papers cut with scissors Scattered over ihe floor; No scampering feet on the stairway, No finger-marks on the door. The flies on the window are tamer, There's no one to catch them to-day And fasten them up in a bottle Pearlie has gone away. There in the furtherest corner Is her "sailor-hat" on the floor, Where she tossed it yesterday evening As she bounded in at the door, Somehow I couldn't take it And put it away to-day, And a plate,~of mud cakes in the cupboard, I couldn't throw them away. "Is she dead?" did you ask me? no, no! My heert had a deeper pain If never to still its throbbing I'd clasp my darling again. But the house is so still and so lonesome, And the sunshines so coldly to-day, And the wind round the corner keeps whispering: "Pearlie has gone away." HELP.' Bill Nye Syeaks a Little Piece. "I desire to adve...

FLOATING FANCIES, The target of perfection has to be aimed at from such a long range that only one man can ever hit the bull's eye. "Pay as you go" is good advice, and does very well for the man who doesn't go very much. A highwayman in Texas got-a sentence of ninety-nine years. This sentence is nearly as long as one of Mr. Evarts'. It rains alike on the just and the unjust and on the just, mainly because ,the unjust have borrowed their umbrellas. The Omaha Republican says the spirit of mortal is proud because it costs fifteen cents a glass. This puts the matter in a new light. A coroner's verdict reads thus, "The de ceased came to his death by excessive drink ing, producing apoplexy in the minds of the jury." A clergyman says: "A young woman died in my neighborhood, yesterday, while I was preaching the gospel in a beastly state of intoxication." "Isn't your husband a little bald ?" asked one lady of another in a store recently. "There isn't a bald hair in his head," was the hasty r...

GUITEAU'8 TRIAL. Judge Porter Knocks a L.rge ilole In the lfuasnais IDefense. WASmINGTON, December 3 -Porter's ex amin tion was addressed to occurrences of the night before the shooting when the pris oner followed the President and Blaine. The prisoner stated he did not shoot that night because it was hot and sultry. "Do you think it would make you hotter to pull the trigger ?" inquired Porter, raising his arm and making the motion of shooting with a pistol. Prisoner, contemptuously--"Oh, dont put on so much style with your trigger. Porter having again questioned the pris oner as to his pistol practice prior to the shooting, the latter turned to the Court and said : "If your honor please, I want to know if it is necessai-y for Judge Porter to go througk this business again. 1 do not see the pertinency of this kind of talk at all, and I ask protection of the Court.

PRISCILLA. My little love sits 'n ihe shade Beneath the shining roses, And gravely sews in half a dream The dainty measures of her seam Until the twilight closes. I look and long, yet have no care To break her maiden musing; I idly toss my book away, And watch her pretty lingers stray Along their task confusing. The dews fall, and the sunset light Goes creeping o'er the meadows; And still with serious eyes cast down, She gravely sews her wedding gown Among the growing shadows. I needs must gaze, though on her cheek The bashful roses quiver She is so modest; simple, sweet, That I, poor pilgrim, at her feet, Would fain adore forever. A heavenly peace dwells in her heart; Her love is yet half duty; Serene and serious, still and quaint, She's partly woman, partly saint,~ This Presbyterian beauty. She is so shy that all my prayers Scarre win a few smail kisses; She lifts her lovely eyes to mine And softly grants, with blush divine, Such slender grace as tais is. I watch her with a tender...

FLOATING FANOIES,. "Darling, this potatoe is only half done." "Then eat the done half, love." "Love is blind," and that is how they man age to keep right on with the gas turned down. A St. Louis editor found a nickel in the street and Wrote a half.column editorial on "'Our Increase of Wealth." It was very ungallant in the old bachelor who was told that a certain lady had "one foot in the grave" to ask if "there wasn't room for both feet." On being asked what he thought fire flies were made for, a little boy answered, "I think God made them for candles to light the little frogs to bed." A homely girl with a small and pretty foot takes 10 per cent more comfort in this world than a pretty-faced girl who knows it is all day with her if she falls over a log. "Six Girls," is the title of the latest novel. -The hero was an infernal villain. We don't think a man can honorably make love to more than three girls at the same time. It is announced that baldness can be cured by skin-grafting, bu...

A ,ARVELLOUS RIFLE-SflOT pat prince Otto, a Nez Perce Indian hloy, HAs Done. prince Otto, the boy chief of the Nez Perce ji.Tns, the protege of Capt. MacDonald, Bad without exception the most wonderful rifle-sbot in the world, gave an exhibition of rife.shooting at Platt's hall, San Franeisco, last week, that was far superior to the best work ever done by Carver or Dr. Ruth. The audience was select, and included several English, French, Russian and Italian officers, and every one present was satisfied, at the close of the exhibition, that they had witnes sed the most wonderful feats ever -perform ed with a rifle. After going through a man ual of arms that would puzzle the oldest militia general in the Union, Otto com mened shooting. A framework was built upon the stage within which were a large number of swinging glass balls. Upon the rear platform was suspended the figure of a mann, life-size. A five cent piece was, placed upon the head of this figure. Otto's back to the object, th...

THE RIVEnn, PRES S._ _ A GREY DAY. Forth from a sky of windless gray Pours down the soft, persistent rain, And she for whom I sigh in vain, Who makes my bliss now makes my pain, Being far from me this autumn day So far away. Upon the waters void and gray No floating sail appears in sight The dull rain and the humid light No wind has any heart to spite, This dreary, weary, autumn day, With love away. Where she is may skies not be gray, But sunlight thrill the vital air Ah, were she here, or were I there, Skies might be dull, or might be fair, Aind I not heed, so she this day Were not away. No Gull wings out 'twixt gray and gray All gray, as far as eye can reach; The sea too listless seems for speech, And vaguely frets upon the beach, As knowing she this autumn day Is far away. Ah, like that sea my life, looks gray Like a forgotten land it lies, With no light on it from her eyes, Lovely and changeful as those skies 'Neath which she walks this autumn day So far away. But they shall pas...
