Story of a Game of Cards.
One hot afternoon in the month of
August, '67, three men sat around a ta
ble in a private parlor at the Hotel Darm
stadt, Ems, Germany, taking such com
fort as they could derive from the juice
of Rhenish grape and a pack of cards.
The most conspicuous figure of the group
was a large man with a bald head, gray
ish blue eyes, a heavy light colored
moustache and air about him that would
have done honor to the imperial purple.
This personage had even then achieved
some fame and was tolerably well known
to reading people by the name of Bis
marck. .Next to him sat another bald
headed individual inferior to Bismarck

about the base of his ekull that looked ' nation.

Dumas on Woman's Laughter.
Alexandre Dumas fds is- at- variance, in
his rr.uch-talked-of preface to 'E'Auu'det
Ecmmes, with the poets of ancient and
modern times. The Greeks who had'
such a keen sense of the bcatiful, quali
fied Venus as the "laughter-loving:"
Shakespeare 'was very fond of sprightly
heroines, whose sallies provoked laughter..
Moore immortalizes the feminine laugh
in his exquisite sketch of an Irish girl,
to whom he was pleased to , give tho
Asiatic name of Nourmahal. Balzac
(who can hardly be called a poet) was
very fond of "a silvery laugh," and used
to say that none but thorougbred gentle
women had a right to weep, because they
aloue weep without disliguring them
selves. Now, hear what M. Dumas has
to say on tlft other side:
If comedy has been so long in disfavor
it is because womeu do not like it. And
why do they dislike it. Becauso in s
comedy men are only conquered by the
ruses, the tricks, the malices, and the
graces of the fair. This does not satisfy
women's ambition. It smacks of the
feints in a fencing school. The conquer
or neither sees the blood nor hears the
groans of the conquered. Woman
delights in the real hand to-hand light
with the other sex which is the soul of
tragedy. She wants publicly to prove
that she has the power to subjugate her
adversary, to make "him bite the dust,
to kill him. She wanU to see him.
down, and to tear his heart out unless he
sue humbly for mercy, and confess her
as the soverign of the uuiverse, or
acknowledges himself a wretched fool
for having misunderstood aud insulted
her so long. But there is another rea
son why women do not like comedy.
No woman wishes to laugh in public.
A laugh depoctizes her aud contorts her
visage. There is a frankness in a hearty
laugh, which jars with her diplomatic
genius. A woman throws away her
best arm when she laughs. The tear
is what she triumphs in. A humid eye
is always interesting, whereas an open-
never is. It is simply an aboun
Smile if you will, lovely woman,
but never laugh. For twenty actresses
who can draw tears, there is hardly oue
who can excite to laughter. The laughter
of an actress is seldom communicative
because it is a surface thing, ilt is at
war with the female organization. A
! rrmiir.il woman does not rcallv belon" to
j . a
her sex, and other women dislike her.
Nevertheless, glory to the laughter-loving
female who is not so much a bearded
man incognito as an excellent, compan
main there as a permanent fixture. Du
ring the Crimean war the father of this
man figured at the Cabinet Councils
in ftt. Petersburg as uount -esseiroue,
but the son was onlv known as a clever
gamester' and an habitue of the fashion- ;
able European watering places. The third j
member of the party was a little fellow
(so little that his f eet scarcely touched j
the floor) wi'h dark piereing eyes,
swarthy skiu, and vivacity enough for '
half a dozen ordinary men. At the time
of which we speak he was the French
Consul at Stuttgart. All of them had
been partaking freely of wine, aud each
in turn shuffled the cards with a vim that
the generous grape imparts even to the
most phlegmatic temperament. The
Frenchman, in the interludes of the play, j treasure, nor that tho return

went on. he ventured the declaration that
France would one day mark the bound

"A hundred Fredericks to fifty," ex
claimed Nesselrode, "that she won't."
"Done," exclaimed the Frenchman,
"and let the game be the fortune-teller."
They shuffled the cards, and the French
"Another wager !" said Nesselrode,
with a glance at Bismarck, who eyed his
two companions calmly, though never
uttering a single word. "Another Wager !

the only way out of the Chinese immi

Wc hardly think that the country is quite
ready to ubandou the principle that was
settled at the cost of so much mony and
essary to settle tne uiunese question.
If the Democracy will work as earnestly

representatives in the United Staes did
to defeat the anti-Chinese bills int rod uc

The Democrats are too much exercised
with fear that the Republican party will
destroy their pet hobby, and make capital
"for statutory stump speeches."
