CUTTINGS FROM AMERICAN PAPERS. When a Brooklyn boy sees a young lady who has Improved upon nature by the appliances of art, and whose face Is & picture fresh from the hand of the paiuter, he nudges his companion and shrewdly exclaims. Jim, she's only a chromo," "What is editorial courtesy?" asks a Southern paper. Why, Its when a Southern editor Is caught stealing chickens at midnight and his brother-editors kindly allude to the matter as a strange freak of a somnumbulut. Josh Billings says, The mewl is a larger burd than a guse or turkey. It has two legs to walk with, and two more to kick with, and It wears its wings on the side of its bed." A minister out in Oconto, Wis., went on a strike a few Sundays ago. The congregation assembled and waited anxiously for him. He didn't put In an appearance. A messenger arrived, however, with a note from the pastor, stating that Divine service would be su»pended until the congregation purchated him a suit of clothes so that he could appear In the pulpit decently clad. A monster, yellow as orange peel, has spread terror In Barks county, Pa. It has the shape of a human being, about four feet high arms with two fingers on each paw, formed like the talons of a chicken feet without toes eyes like those of a cat; three crowns on its head, about six inches high; body naked and yellow. Its genus Is unknown. -Ame.rican Exchange.—It is probably a canard-American Register. A rough North Carolinian, going West with his dozen children and two dozen dogs, went on board a steamer at a Kentucky landing, and his first question was, How much will you charge, cap'n, to take us to St. Louis T" "Will you go on deck or in the cabin?" queried the cap- tain. The Carolinian hesitated a moment, and then, with a sigh over his own self-sacrifice, replied, "I wal cap n, I've lived In a cabin all my life, aad I s'pose the cabin 11 be good enough for me." A popular concert singer, advertised to participate In an entertainment In a Missouri village, excused ner absence on the ground or having a cold in the head; the next day she received the following from an admirer— "Thlzisgonse greze; melt It and rub it on the brigs of yore noz until kured. 1 luv you to distraxsbun." An American deeply smitten with a girl was smitten by her In return when he proposed. The blow and the scornful refusal awoke ire in place of love. His revenge was to propose to her mother, who accepted right off, and now that girl is under his parental rule. He enforces her atten. tion to household details in place of gadding about, and he peremptorily forbade all male vlsltons the house, saying that the girl was too young to think of marriage, and that he would not have her fooled around. He has been married several months, and yet, contrary to the usages of the country, he has as yet made no application for a divorce, and it is believed that he will continue to remain united to the mother until the girl comes of age and he can no longer prevent her from getting married. The young woman is pining away, her spirits are gone, and the monster triumphs In his hideous scheme of vengeance.
