It was a fair-haired girl who spoke these words, and as they came from her lips Viv ian Mahoney, the young man to whom they were addressed, leaned tenderly over Feridt Peterson and strove to kis away the tears that were welling up her beautiful, dreamy brown eyes. "I do n' t blame yon," she continued in a broken voice.. "She whom you will one day wed is fair to look upon, and when her warm kisses melt upon your lips tt is not strange that you forget all else but that she would gl idly become your wife, and that her father owns a coal yard.

LUXURY, ANOIENT AND MODERN. M. Braudrillat, of the French Institute, has given to the world a very interesting and instructive work on luxury, which once more suggests the reflection that there is nothing new under the sun. Personal luxury is a very old story, and in many respects the lux ury of thousands of years ago is not ever likely to be surpassed,-at all events, in point of expense. It is scarcely possible that hu man labor will again be procurable on terms which, for instance, will permit the raising of structures to gratify the mere whims.of individuals, at such cost as those produced in the countries where architecture first made progress, and the cost of an entertainment is hardly likely nowadays to run into the tens of thousands by drinking pearls or crushed rubies in our wines at dinner. Luxury of the most costly kind existed in the Egypt of the Pharaohs, and ,at Nineveh, -where Sardanapalus dictated for his epi taph: "Eat, drink, and lust; the rest is nothing ;"-and in ...

IN THE DESERT. A Bedouln's rantastlc Appearance- StranKe Refraction of Light. [Keane.] A Bedouin riding past at full speed, carry-. ing a long spear, was in sight for more than an hour and ahalf. He took all kinds of fantastic shapes, and as regards the distance, he was off at any moment ; the best range finder ever invented could not have localized him. At one time he was split up into three, with a space of something that looked like a surface of shimmering water between each t part-the legi of the camel dancing along over the plain without any body attached to them, and high over them the body of the camel and iider flying through the air, and above them again the tuft of feathers sur mounting his spear, looking like a bird in the air. * * * What added greatly to the dreariness of this horrid waste was the total absence of animal life ; not a fish-jump ruf. fled the surface of the glassy lakes; not even the proverbial and familiar pelican of the wilderness was to be seen by the s...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, January 18, 1882. JERRY COLLINS. - - - - - - EDITO CoUnsEL are still addressing the jury in the Guiteau case. It will probably require another week to conclude the case. R. B. HAYES, wt o will occupy a niche in history as the first fraudulent President of the United States, refused to contribute a nickel to the Garfield monument fund. If there is a smaller man in the country than R. B. Hayes, his whereabouts has not been discovered. UGE. Buvansm z., of Pennsylvania, and Gen. Blackburn, of Kentucky, are engaged in calling each other pet names, through the medium of the press. The Kentucky man wants to fight, but Gen. Burbridge very sen sibly declines to enter the lists. The latter's conduct towards the rebels while in com mand of the department of Kentucky during the war, is the cause of the unpleasantness. REV. RB.

CRAZY JELEPHANTS. Mighty Antmals Growing Enraged at Their Attendants. "Of all the mad elephants, Hannibal, I think, was the worst," said Dr. L. A. Graves, the veteran showman at Bunnell's. "Most elephants recover from a mad fit within in a" few days, but Hannibln-well, he would keep up a tantrum for weeks and months at a time. The longest spell he ever had began early one morning in June, 1854, while trav eling with Raymond and Waring's manag erie from Pawtucket to Fall River. He broke away from his keeper and ran the highway thirteen miles, smashing every thing he could. Talk about elephants being large ! Hannibal looked as large as a loco motive that morning. The keeper attemited to check him and was chased into a swamp. The first vehicle the mad elephant met was a butcher's cart loaded with mutton. He smashed the cart, killed the horse; broke the driver's arm and scattered the quarters of mutton along the highway. Two vegetable wagons were upset and the horses killed, the drivers...

PEOPLE WHO &WEAR. Examples Quoted by Mlr. Talmage of Men Who Have Cursed God and Died. The Brooklyn Tabernacle was crowed Sunday morning when Mr. Talmage took his text from the ninth verse of the second chap ter of Job, "Curse God and Die." Prefacing his remarks with the story of Job's tribula tions and his refusal to curse the Lord at the command of his wife, Mr. Talmage said that blasphemy is one of the ten plagues. The drayman curse in the street and the girl swears in the factory. Little children swear men swear, ladies swear (half suppressed laughter), from the ealling on the Almighty in the low restaurant up to the "Oh Lord !" from female lips in the glittering drawing room. It was no profanity when James A. Garfield in the Washington depot cried out, "Oh ! my God ! What does this mean!" There is no profanity in calling on God in the day of desolation. Between sixteen and twenty years of age there is a time when a young man is as much ashamed at not being able to swear fre...
