A very good-look iajr, slender, innocent
appearing girj waa brought "up" yester
day, iu company with a young man who
looked vastly ashamed of himself, and
had the expression of "one who wants to
home.'" The. charge agatist Julia and
Percy was an ugly one. The oliicer stat
el that he had seen Percy enter her
room, had waited patiently with -his ear '
at the door til! he he;ird a kiss, and
then, breaking it open, had found hini
with his arm around her neck.

then it was well to follow the way of the
Miss Julia then proceeded o inform
his Honor that a short time before she
had been left motherless, was thrown up
on her own resources. She had no hus
ba"d aud saw the way to none. She did
not like to sew; she did not want to
spoil her hands with hard work; for a
hand once eularged is not susceptible of
reduction. A large hand was a bad
habit which one could not easily get rid
of. But her whs were good, and by
them she proposed to live, and if possible
transmute the vagrant humor3 of her
brain into cakes and clothes. After
thinking a temporarily expensive pro
cess since it led to the pawning of some of
her clothes she came to a determination.
She reasoned that whatever men might
be when associated with one another, they
were frequently great fools when brought
in contact with women. Yet she did
not beleive t-hat this folly was ingrain,
but that it was for lack of knowins
better. Then she went a step further,
and assumed that these men would like
to know better, and were foolish only for
lack of one to teach them otherwise.
She had the wisdom they needed, and
they the money she nteded why should
there not be an exchange ?
The work was a oble one, for he or
she who uproots a folly is nobler than he
or she who destroys a thousand Canada
To make known her intention, she felt
that she must advertise, j So this young
alchemist turned a couple of skirts and
some other trifle into a dollar, procured
a handkerchief's worth of paper, and
thus advertised, stating that a young
lady ot polished address, reduced circum
stances, and former social advatage?, de
sired to give lessons in etiquette and the
way of conversing with ladies, to any
young gentleman who did not feel at case
in the society of the opposite sex. Tui
tion to lovers extra.
The advertisement waa a sucess. She
saw youg men who were at a lack for
feminine topics, ignorant of the nice con
duct of the hands and the proper plaqe of
the feet. She had made money, and,
waxed fat with prosperity, had cut her
old friends, 4he pawnbrokers, after re
turning their Kfile visiting card3. There
One day Percy came along. lie stat
ed he was courting a West Side maiden,
and that unhappily ha did not get on
fast as he desired. He was still miles
from a proposal. He knew she expected
it, and he knew -he wanted to do it.
But he could not. He had walked to
the house, repeating to himself : " I wil
propose to-night; J will propose i to
night;" but after getting there he would
find that man may propose to propose
but that God still disposes. Hence tears

Brave Woman is Umpqua Valley-
The Roseburg Ensign of lat Saturday
relates the following : A large Ameri
can flag has, for years past, decorated the
porch of a residence in the Umpqua vall
ey. Last week, a notorious secessionist .
from Lane county, named Mulkey, pass
ing that way, halted ' before the house
and swore that he would take ; the flag.
tie it to the tail of his horse and drag; it

and not molest her. Perceiving that her
appeal to the manhord of the dastardly
coward was without effect, and that he
stilt repeated his threat of dragging the
Old Flag at his horse's tail, the patriotic
and heroic lady took down a loaded gun
and told this brave specimen of chivalry
that she would shoot him the moment he
attempted to carry out his threat. Th
argument had such a powerful effect on
the brave insulter of a lone woman that
