THE CALIFORNIA GIRL.

Tako her all In all, Puolla Californlca
Is really tho nicest kind of a girl. Of
courso aho has faults, and one of tbom
is a very tender vanity tho most inno
cently obvious vanity which you can pos
sibly imagine, Sho has been told so
many times that sho is tho finest and
most luxuriant product of tho finest and
most luxuriant State in tho Union, that
Bho has becun to rcirard it as an abso
lutely established, incontestable fact,
llko tho revolution of tho earth or tho
law of gravitation. It Is also a staple
topic of conversation, especially with
tho Itinerant from tho Kast In fact, it
is hor weather and crops. Not to say
"I have been much struck, Miss Bonan
za, by tho beauty of tho Callfornian
girls," Is to make an unpardonablo social
omission. Sho will receive it with tho
tranquility of Btaled custom, assent
placidly, and glvo an instanco or two
where taste, eolobrated for its culture
lias arrived at tho samo conclusion.
Sho goes ovon further, for sho resents
a criticism or a comparison. Matthow
Arnold, In his articlo on tho United
States, deplored tho Inability of tho
Amoricans to brook criticism. Puolla
Californlca has this National falling in
Its worst form. In a drawing-room where
you stand on a ploasantly lntimato foot
ing it is as much as that footing is worth
to admit that you admiro tho beauty of
I'ifth avonuo moro than tho beauty of
California street, ovon though you con
fess that your tasto is bad, and excuse
yourself from tho wrath to como on tho
ground that you woro brought up in Now
England, whero a sonso of tho boautiful
is not cultivated. Still tho fiat has gono
forth, and though you must not exactly
dio, from that moment on your glory is
Undoubtedly Puolla Californlca has
beauty a sumptuous, splendid beauty,

native State, lackintr in iincness and

world, but thoy havo llttlo swootness.
They havo all run to stzo. Their main
charm hns boon sacrificed to ovordo
"volopmont. Puolla Californlca, llko tho
roso, is in danger of running to sizo. In
tho rich, warm olimato of hor .natlvo
Stato sho has grown too rapidly, shot up
llko a weed. Sho ought to be grown
under glass for a fow yoars. Thon sho
would bo perfect. Sho would havo
pointed onds to hor Angers, small wrists
and llttlo, dollcutoly-inoldcd ears. As
it is now, sho is rather roughly finished,
but sho has tho prettiest comploxion
and hair in tho world.
In hor attitude toward hor "gontlo
man friends" Puolla Californlca is again
original. Sho is without tho instincts
of a flirt. Sho likes men to toll hor
that Callfornian girls aro tho hand
somest in tho country, and that of Call
fornian girls aho Is tho flowor but this
Jsmoroly regarded as a fucon dn parlor.

cases aho is absolutely heavy. Make no

In tho middle of tho seventeenth cent

these books thu narrator Btatus that ho

"It was a book, Indeed, but a strange

STAMPS WITH A HISTORY.
Help to Tell the Story Thmt Led t
the American Herniation.
Thoro havo lately como into tho pos
session of the National museum two
articles which nro of p-reat interest to
every American, and of particular
value to every student of American
history. These nro nothing; more nor
less than two of the original stamps
engraved in England for u&e iu tho'
American colonies in accordance witn
the provisions of the stamp act of
February, 1705. This was tho act which
caused such an uproar among the col
onies, and was one of tho main causes
of all the trouble immediately preced
ing tintl leading up to tho Revolution.
It was intended that the revenue to
bo raised by the stamp act should come
from tho 'sale of stamped paper and
stamps which wero required to bo
placed upon all papers used in com
mercial transactions, suits at law, pub
lications, transfers of real estate, in
heritances and marriage licenses.
Thus a tax was placed upon the colo
nies without their consent, and the
money derived from this tux was to bo
used "for the support of a standing
army, which iu turn was expected to
enforce the payment of the tax. Ap
parently no Englishman dreamed of
any resistance to the act, utid it is said
that Grenville, the minister under
whom tho act was passed, afterwards
tnado the statement that he would havo
staked his life on the obedience of tho
colonies to the measure. Of cotu-se,
however, there was a decided resist
ance, as every American knows, which
led to the repeal of the act in March,
1700. under tho Rockingham minis
try. The stamps themselves wero hand
somely engraved, and ran in valuo
from a half-penny up to several
pounds. The two stamps now in the
museum aro of the value of a half
penny and a penny. They aro uncan
cel leu and arc two of eight whi
bv tho heirs of Hon. wel-
Ellis, who was commissioner of
internal revenue for Great Britain in
the year 1705. After his death they
came into the possession of his son,
Welbore Ellis, jr., who was a partner
in the famous banking house of Walk
er, Maltby, Everett & Ellis, which
failed in tho great financial panic of
These two stamps remained in the
Ellis family up to a few years ago,
when they wero given to Mr. E. J.
Walker, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, by his
grandfather, tho senior member of the
above mentioned banking linn, who
was interested in antiques and curi
osities. A short time ago the two
stamps were given by Mr. E. .J. Walk
er to Mr. John A. Brill of Philadel
phia. Very soon after the stamps came
into his possession, Mr. Brill received
an oiler of 10 from an English col
lector for tho two, but declined it at
once, whereupon the Englishman
cabled him an oiler several times as
large, which was also declined. Mr.
Brill came to the conclusion that if
tho stamps were of that much value
loan Englishman, tliey would bo of
much moro value to an American mu
seum of historical relics, and he
promptly presented them to tho Na
tional museum here, where they will
bo appreciated and properly preserved.
They will bo installed in a handsome
frame, which will have pictures and
proper legends that will help to tell
the story of the causes that led to the
American Revolution. Washington.
Hie Teiichins4 nf Death.
There is nothing, no, nothing, inno
cent or good, that dies and is forgot
ten ; let us hold to that faith or none.
An infant, a prattling child, dying in
its cradle will live again in the better
thoughts of those who loved it, and
play its part, through them, in tiie re
deeming actions of the world, though
its body bo burnt to ashes, or drowned
in the deepest sea. There is not an
angel added to tho host of heaven but
does its blessed work on earth in those
that it loved here.
Forgotten I oh, if the good deeds of
human creatures could be traced to
their source, how beautiful would oven
death appear 1 for how much charity,
mercy and purified allection would
be seen to have their growth in dusty
graves. When death strikes down the
innocent and young, for every fragile
form from which ho lets tho panting
spirit freo a hundred virtues rise, in
shapes of mercy, charity and lovo to
walk the world and bless it. Of every
tear that sorrowing mortals shed on
aiieii graves, somo good is born, Some
gentler nature conies. In the destroy
er's step spring up bright creations
that dely his power, and his dark path
becomes a way of light to Leaven.
A Sort of Joint Proposal,
A short timo since, at a wedding in
South Carolina, a lawyer moved that
one man should bo elected as presi
dent; that this president should bo
duly sworn to keep secret nil the com
munications that should bo forwarded
to him in his ollicial capacity that
night; that each unniarried gentle
man or lady should write his or her
name on a piece of paper, and under
it placo the naino of flio person they
wished to mavry, then hand it to the
president for inspection, and if any
lady and gentleman htuj reciprocally
chosen each other, the president was
lo inform .each of tho result, and tho
names of those who had not been re
ciprocal in their choico were to bo kept
entirely secret. After tho appoint
ment of tho president, communica
tions wero accordingly handed up to
the chuir. It was found that twelve
young ladies nnd gentlemen had
made reciprocal choices-, aud cloven,
of the twelve matches wero solem
