They ac quiesced, and having armed thetnselvés with á watch, not a " stop one," and all necessary appurtenances to a training suit, they looked a " kiuder gay."

A TRULY GRATEFUL WIDOWER. Sm WALTER SCOTT used to be fond of telling the following story of his cousin Watty. Watty aforesaid was a midshipman in the British navy.' Oh a certain occasion he and his mess mates had gone on shove at Portsmouth, and had overstayed their leave, besides spending all their money and running np a bill at a tavern at the Point. Their ship made signal for sailing, peremptorily calling all hands on board ; but when they would have started, the landlady said : ' No I gentlemen', you cannot escape with out paying your reckoning.' And to confirm her words, she called a bailiff and his posse to take charge of them.

You must be aware, gentlemen, that you will be totally ruined and disgraced if you do not get on board in time.' They groaned bitterly, for they knew she spoke the truth.

The driver was killed, and the story ended with the words, ' Poor fellow 1 he was dead when his curses reached him.' As curious, and much more certainly true, is the fact that when a man is struck by lightning he does not sec the flash. Wc do not know whether it has been ob served that something similar will happen to thc first man killed by the eighty-one-ton gun, within a mite of the muzzle, who will not hear the shot fired.
