Don t ch^do me that I like the ways Of thé good old fashioned girl  There was true love in the olden time,  Not love of vain display. And poverty was not the crime  It seems to be to day— And a loving g'rl was well content—  Nor strove for Knight or Earl— | But wedded at her heart's sweistlbent, Did the good old fashioned girl.  —Philadelphia News.

Time flies wiih us as well with you  But blast bis transmutations; Howe'er we swap old ways for new  We keep this compensation. No innovation cometh through,  From ojut the dizzy whirl As now, 'fo was she years ago, The lovely Georgia girl.  "Without airs or affectation,  A modest voice and low. Not scorning occupation,  Cheeks all wilh heallh ag'ow." Such were your girls in othf-r days,  You need not ad<l a curl, This cltari description but portrays Our not>lc Georgia girl.  lier loyc is trup, aye in all time;  Nor seeks she wain display, And poverty is not a crime.

Dr. Harsha, of Omaha, nartates the following incident as told him by John Dixon, of Dison City, IIU Gen. ^infield Scott, when a young jmaD, was stationed a% Fort Soellii^g, at that day, perhaps, the re-motesfi oatpost of the United States* When the Black Hawk war was in^ augorgted soiáe malitia from Illinois proll^d theiif services to aid in con-qaeriog the salvages. With a view to moste^ng th^ into the service of the ¡United ^tates two lieutenants were sent by i^ttto the then village ofDixpn. O^ of these was a very fascinating, g(|od-looking, easy-mans oered,|affab]e|and flaent young gen» tleman. Théfother equally pleasant, but an jezceediogly modest young man. On the; morning when the mustering-in wasjto take place a tall, gawky, slab aided, homely yonng man, dressed ini á suit of home made blue jeans, presenjbed himself to the two lienten-ants áá the captain of the recruits, and w^ duly sworn in. This was he wbo afterward became President of the United Stales—the lamented Lin^ coin.. ¡One of the liéutenanto, the modesi youth, was he who fired the first gUn from Sumter, Major Anderson. jrhe other, and he who admin*» i8tere<^ the oath, was in after years President of the Southern Confederax cy, Je^rsoti Davis.  Dr. Harsha was in New York,where he chejnced to repeat the coincidences to a friend. | An elderly gentleman who jwas siUing near by listening arose ánd retnarked that he was happy to ^ able to confirm thi factsjas given by Mr. Dixon, as he ; was the chaplain at Fort Snelling at the time, and was fully able to corroborate each statement. A bystander then gaye this additional testimony: ^Mr. Lincoln had often been heard to say that the firjBt timé he had ever taken the oath of allegiance to the United States it was;administered to him by Jefferson Davis.' ■ 5  ]>o Girls, Do. i  Do i)e natural.

AI<ist.of Those in Georgia Wli6 ReceiTe Allowaoces— Some Interesting Facts.  .futíanla JonrhaU  Capt, W. H. Hairisen, of the es-ecntive offi(», has been engaged for some weeks past in preparing a list of the Claimed Oon federate soldier's who lost libbs in the seryiae, and to whom payments for artificial limbs have been made for the period from 1883 to 1886. The same has been pablished in pamplet ^orm, a copy of which has reached jthe Joarnare table. A study cf the. list pteaents some very interesting facts, and none is more prominent than the fact that the Georgia boys were always in tbe hottest of the fight, where ¿he bullets and the shells were the thickest The list embraces 869 persons and hab representatives from ever? county in the Stale save threa—Charlton^ Union and Warrep. Fait on county leads the list wjth 53. Riohmon^ follows with 29, Bibb with 23, (^winnott 17.-; Cherokee 16. DeKulk U, Cobb 13, and from this down toj one.  Among those crippled in two limbs are the foliowingi: E, H. Nations, of Whitfield, botb legs above the knee, Jobn J. Lyojns, of Clay, and E. B. Higginsbothjam, of Elbert, both legs off below tb^ koee; two are minus a leg below the knee aud arm above the elbow; two lost a leg below the kuee and an arm below the elbovv, while two lost a leg above tbe knee and an arm below the elbow. There are 328 who. have lost arms above the elbow and 122 below the elbow, wibile 177 have lost legs abüva tlié koíee and 216  O i  below tbo knej. i  The list includes one general, one lieutenant-colonel, ten captains, seventeen lieatenantsj, thirty-two sergeants and one trqnjpeter, the remainder being privaj-ea.  The law at present makes no provision for any kind of a disability (xcept for au arm or leg.  Payments are made to ex-Confederates who enlisted from other States, provided tbey were living in Georgia in Septeoiber, 1879, and baye since resided therein.  All Georgia sollien^. now living ia tbis State are entitléd to these allowancoH, although tbey m^y have resided elsewhere at tlie date of the paf^sage of the origimjl act, (September, 1879.) If tbey are now ban a fide citizens of Georgia thoy are beneficiaries.

Ice Signals.  It is in contemplation to arrange a code of ice signals to be employed by ships that traverse the Atlantic. By means of it a ship that has pass ed a field of ice or sighted an icebei^ may communicate the information to any ship that it may meet.  It occurs to us that somelhing similar might be arranged for the protection of our ycung men on land. For instance a young man is taking an evening stroll wilh hi? girl. He meets another youth who signals him, "Ice cream saloon two blocks ahead,*' which enables the first young man to turn down another street and avoid the ihrealened danger.—Tcacas Sifl-  1834, he Ho the friends I^ater  There is a pleasant story | of La Fayette's affectionate remenlbrance of the life there.

Thus does an anobtrusive color of ink, heavy, plain, paper, and neatness of the sheet, indicats the lady or geotlem^n, notwithstanding tbe style of handwriting in vogae.  Fifty yeiars ago, the very delicate, very regular, very slanting oharac-ters of the Italian style of handwriting was in use; this, while lacking in character, possessed the one reGommeodation of legibility.  Then came in the Euglish style, very square, very imposing, stately aa Britannia herself, but wholly illegible.  At tbis time we have in use, generally a happy combination of both, and perhaps at no former time has more importance been attached to letter writiug than at present.  Business men consider it a most essential dignity to maintain, and their handsomely engraved letterheads and carefally dictated and neat-written mail are carefally considered indications of their business standing.  It was formerly believed that illegibility and baste indicated enterprise and promptness; bat while tbey do not entirely abandon money-saving and time saving, they now consider beaaty-saving as well.  In letter-writing it is demonstrated that it is practicable to combine nsefulness and legibility.  Ladies of leisure can have no excuse for such an omission, which in thein would be at once nnladylike and discourteoas.  Thy are aided in this work by the perfect pens, perfect paper, and perfect ink of the day.  Bteel pens are moat generally used in preference to the more expensive gold ones, at one time considered indispensable.  The variety and excellence of paper is unlimited for the ladies' use, but the heavy cream-laid, moderate-sizjd sheet, anraled, is considered ia most elegant taste.  Tbe sheet may be simply orna-mt nted by tbe address of the writer, the street tiu-l nambc^r, or, if suburban, the n «me, as "Itoeebush Villa," in pi'iin, bundsomo eograving. We learn that Mrs. Cleyeland uses stu lioîjery adorne 1 witb ber snouogram iu heraldic fashion, aud the motto inLitin, "Whoiru boie are, there iri boney." und p>erhap3 this will le»d to ionov itiona.

There ia not pash enough ofjhe right fciad in this world. There is altogether too mach of the wrong kin^ If there was mora of the right kind, thers woald b3 a good many less hnngry, poorly clothed, shelterless, starving little ones; a good many lefs ased-up, dissipated men and women; a good deal less need lor poor houses, charitable institations, reformatories and jails.  mie right kind of pash means a hft for a brother or a neighbor iu trooble—a hoist for yourself out of the ratof despondency, oat of tbe *blaes,' oat of troable, actaal or imaginary. Pash ahead! It never harts anybody if jou push and drive in the right direction. Bat, never have a hand io pushing anything down. Pash the other way, or keep from, pushing entirely. Poor homcEnity goes down fast enoagh of its own weight when onca it gets started. Don't add to the velocity by any act of yours.  Push with all yoarr might, all your heart, all your soul, nil the time. Don't stand back b&oausc tbere is troable ahead. Stand up like a man aud push forward. If yoa see a man about to do wrong, push him aside from tho temptation, pash tbe temptation out of his way, pash bim ou tha right track and push him ahead.  Pash in the direction of the good, and the trae, and tho beautiful. Pash in the direction of the bonell cial and tho prosperous. Push toward success. Push »vhead. Keep movfng.
