PROPOSALS OP MARRIAGE.
You will -find no end of curious
things written about the marriage
proposals, says a writer in Demo
rest's Monthly ; if you search for
that purpose. For instance, that
eccentric classical character who
goes into the kitchsu of a neigh
bor some morning, and, finding
the object of his regard at the
wash tub, proposes bluntly then
and there. Instead of emptying
its contents upon him, she as
bluntly accepts his proposal.
There is the bashful suppliant,
who turns down some leaf about a
passage usually a sacred one
which tells his story for him, and
the answer is returned in similar
fashion. There is the proposal at
a ball or dinner b a slip of paper
sent across the room or table, and
there is the one in which the re
ply is asked in the form of some
specified and understood signal.
In some book that I have read, an
English gentleman who had sever
al eligible daughters wondered,
after waiting some years for such
an event, wiry none of them, not
even the prettiest, got a proposal.
When he investigated tho matter
thoroughly he found that the fail
ure arose from an architectural
blunder. The rooms of his house
were so connected together b a
series of open doors and spacious
mirrors that the question could
not be put without exposing it to
almost as much specularity as it
would obtain on a public thorough
fare. It is quite common for very
young ladies to say that their first
serious interest in any young gen
tlemen is aroused by his previous
interest in them confessing, in
other words, that they have no or
iginal feeling in the matter. They
would not, probably, like to say
that one gentleman is as likable
or as agreeable to them as another,
though they must constantly act
as if it were so, until some partic
ular gentlemen breaks the spell
and gives them permission to say
otherwise. But, what if the
righteous one should never break
the spell, as often happens? Or
what, if neither the right nor the
wrong one does, and no opportu
nity ever comes? As the system
is now arranged this is not at all a
rare circumstance, nor is the lady
less worthy, necessarily than her
differently favored sisters. She
ma' even be more worthy, but
may have lived more quietly, or
may be deficient simply in that
peculiar art of fascinating, which
even silence cannot prevent from
One of the worst features of
this unmitigated silence, which is
imposed upon one sex alone, is the
insincerity and hypocrisy which it
not only inculcates, but places a
premium upon. Nothing irritates
a woman so much as to have any
ground given for a suggestion
that she has gone a step out of
her way to secure a gentleman's
interest or attention. She -would
rather be won by a peasant than
move the least bit aggressively to
win a prince. Her natural feel
ings are smothered and suppressed
and she accepts the artifice which
she must put on, as it were both
reasonable and natural.
If anyone wishes to grow fleshy,
a pint of milk taken on retiring at
night will soon cover the scraw
niest bones. Although we see a
good many fleshy persons now
adays, there are a great many
lean and lank ones, who sigh for
the fashionable measure of plump
ness, and who would be vastly im
proved in health and appearance
could their forms be rounded with
good solid flesh. Nothing is
more coveted by a thin woman
than a full figure, and nothing
will so rise the ire and provoke
the soandal of the "clipper-build"
as the consciousness of plumpness
in a rival. In case of fever and
summer complaint, milk is now
given with excellent results. The
idea that milk is feverish has ex
ploded, and it is now tho physi
cian's great reliance in bringing
through typhoid patients, or those
'in too, low a state to be nourished
by aolid food.

Commenting on the alleged dis
covery of dynamite in the possession
of Irish suspects in England, the
Dublin Freeman's Journal of
the Gth,says: "It is the duty of every
honest and honorable Irishman to
reprobate and denounce this
species of deviltry, which can only
end in the alienation of all good
men from their support of the na
tional cause, and cause collapse
and ruin and disgrace to the cause
Announcement was made in
San Francisco last Friday, of the
sale of the Western Fur company
to the Alaska Commercial compa
ny, thus giving to that compauy a
anonopolyHbf the mainland of the
Alaska fur trade, as well as of the
islands. The Western company
was an English organization and
confined its operations exclusively
to the mainland, but has been un
able to compete with the Alaska
Commercial company, which now
acquires a monopoly in the fur and
seal business in Alaska.
J. S. Hallett informs a News re
porter that he is through with the
Clarke's Fork division of the
Northern Pacific railroad, now,
and discharged his men, 5,500 in
all, on the 31st ult. The road is
finished up to and track laid over
the last crossing of Pen d'Oroille.
There are yet 2CC miles to finish,
143 of which are on this side of
the tunnel and have been graded
about half that distance, during
the past year by tho contractors.
In the Clarke's Fork division, all
but eight miles had to be ballast
ed. In addition to this there had
to be nine miles of trestle work
put up, which took 10,000,000 feet
of cedar and tamarack.

Wo take pleasure in stating
that the great German Remedy,
St. Jacoby Oil, is being used by
many ring artists now engaged
with P. T. Barnum's GrcatestShow
on Earth, united with the Great
London Circus, Stranger's Royal
British Menagerie and the Interna

happy effect upon those who have
occasion to employ it, we have no
hesitation in pronouncing St. Ja

has ever been brought to our no

in subduing pain.

The offer was not excepted, and
within a few hours a second part

third mau wanted to sell his fath

had a dream of his own to sell for

"Say, don't do it; you are the
