'At votir service, sir," replied
'Delighted to moet yon, sir. We

they were whirled swiftly away.
"God bless us," thout'hl the exio

very kind. Never was in this town

Quy bore a atlicking resemblance
to Gen. Lewis Cass, and while he was
projnietor of the National Hotel, in
Washington, the Michigan Senator
was among his favored guests. Guy
dressed like Cass, and although not
portly, his lace, including the wart,
was strangely similar. One day a
Western friend of the house camein
slier n long ride, dusty and tired, and,
walked up to the officer, encountered
Gen. Cass, who was quietly standing
there. Mistaking hiin for Guy ' he
slsiifd him oij the shoulder, and ex

Cincinnati Saturday Night 1 . . .
I don't believe in the women ol our
day writes a - oon'ribntor to the
American Art Journal. I went to
ball the other night, the fust one in
five years, - I wanted tosee whether
the women inado any progress. I
found they have.
Yes, and il'a in the wrong way.
They formerly painted their cheeks ,
now they paint their face, neck,
shoulders and arms. It was hard to
tell niter one of these wrestling
matches I bclievo they call it walla
ing whether the women's faces or
the gentlemen's coat sleeves had the
most poirderoii them.. I would in;
gest to the "boys" tint they' put on
white silk anils when they dance with
these powder boxes.
I wss introduced to one of them.
I'll wager she would't weigh more
than 95 pouuds. In a conversation
of twn minutes she informed me that
she had been twice to Ktiropo, threa
times in love, once blown ii in a
steamer, twice injured in a railroad
accident, and once, alio added, the
heroine in a.ical novel, whi h wis
too lovely for any thing. At supper
I watched here clesfly, she ate twelve
fried oysters, a' plate of chicken salad,
somo bono turkey, three plates of ioe-
it-ream, besides drinking champagne, '
black coffee and ice-water. At 3 a.
sr. I left the ball room; she was still,
lancing. Her dress (or rather what
was left of il) was held together
by fifty jins, which she had skillfully
inserted hero and there.
At halt past 2 a. m, she passod olete
by mo snd cripd out: "Colonel, it is
delightful!" Next day I. met her
father; ho said some' hing about "Sis
not being very well this morning."
