A gentleman in Chicago had occasion to call at the house of a friend. He rang the bell; but, before he could speak, the buxom Dutch girl threw her fat arms about his neck, and fastened her red lips to his in a long, long kiss," ejaculating, "A eh, mein bruder —mien bruder!" But the cool Chicagonian merely ejaculated, What the d 1! And Katrine, on discovering her error, retired, much redder in the face, to her quarters in the kitchen. She dink he vas mine aoldier bruder, come home from de wars." Araong the peculiarities, if not eccentricities, of literature, it may be mentioned that George Sala is so near-sighted, that, when engaged in writing, he place3 the paper on a chair, and kneels down, as if about to perform an act of devotion. Miss Braddon, when similarly engaged, seats herself on a low chair, puts a quire of paper on a music-book, holds her ink-bottle in her left hand, and writes away by the hour. Her debut originally was in the poetical line. Poets have left off writing. Prop e pays, and verse does not. The poets who write valentines, and the poet kept by Mr. MOl!e, with the exception of the Poet Laureate and Tupper, are the only poets who can make an honest penny by their trade.
