The Philosopher's Stone.
The eccentric but brilliant John
Randolph once rose; sudden'y in
the House of Representatives, and
screamed out at the top of hisshrill
voice, "Mr, icaker! Mr. Speaker!
I have discovered the philosopher's
stone. It is pay as you go!"
John Randolph dropped many rich
gems from his mouth, but never a
richer one than that. "Fay as you
go," and you need not dodge sher
iffs and constables. "Fay as you
go," and you can walk the streets
with an erect back and a manly
front, and have no fear of those you
meet. You won t have tocrossthe

tently in a shop window, in order ;
not to see a creditor. "Fav as you
go," and you can snap your finger
at the world; and when you laugh,

A Complication' ok Horkoks.
From time to time the French
journals furnish us with tragedies
as singular as they are horrible, and
the following is a lair specimen of
them: Two partners in the wine
trade were in financial difficulties,
and many angry interviews occurred
between the parties. Wishing to
put an eir! to one of these scenes,
E. Descazean was about to with
draw from his partner's presence,
when 31. Duploux, in a frenzy of
passion, rushed upon him with a
knife, and slabbed him in the side.
The victim fell, and the assassin
stabbed himself three or four times
in the abdomen, lie then rushed
ii)) stairs, opened the window, and
after driving the knife up to the
hilt through his left cheek, threw
himself into the court. A woman
employed in the house had heard
the noise and rushed out to ascertain
its cause iust as Dunloux was tall-

ame Dup'oux, a young and pretty
woman, also rushed out at the mo
ment and was so affected by the
horrible sight that she is said to
have lost her reason.
