Earlier still jDesguines affirmed that Chinese books spoke of a land in the East, which can have been no other than America. Neumann even brings to light an account of the travels of a Chinese monk and mission to the realm Fusang.— That Fusang must mean Mexico, is evident from the details given by the monk respecting the geographical position and products of the country.

No sooner he uttered this part of his experience, than he was suddenly interrupted by one of the trustees, an aged man who rose and said in a firm, loud voice, "My dear brother, you must put the devil behind you." On his taking his seat, the pastor in charge quickly rose, and also re-plied to the little man, as follows: "My dear brother, you must remember that we shepherds are sent to the lost sheep of the tribe of Israel." Whereupon the little man rose again, and in answer, said, in a very loud tone : "Yes ; and if I had been a fat one, you would have found me long ago." The effect upon the audience can be better imagined than expressed.—[Lutheran Observer. ^jj day morning, to morrow is /'.¡day, the next day Wednesday— half the week gone, and nothing done yet!" Youthful generosity was illustrated in Albany recently. A little boy, smeared all over with molasses, came running up from the river, flourishing a dirty shingle, and screaming at the top of his voice to a comrade : "Oh, Bill! Bill! get as many boys and shingles as you can, there's a big hogsit of 'lasses busted on the pavement—busted all to smash !" A chemical Icctureer, while expatiating on discoveries in chemical science, remarked that snow has been found to possess a considerable degree of heat. An individual present replied that, "truly chemistry was a valuable science." and, anxious that the discovery might be made profitable, he inquired of tlie lecturer, "what number of snow-balls would be sufficient to boil a teakettle." Said one stud<»nt to another, ¡whom he caught swinging a scythe most lustily in a field of stout grass: "Frank, what makes 3'ou work for a living? A fellow with your talents and abilities should not be caught engaged in hard labor. I mean to get mv iving by my wits." "Well, Bill, you can work with duller tools than I can," was the reply.

Victoria lawn morning dresses are elaborately trimmed with the patent Valenciennes. Where lace cannot be had, plisfies of muslin are quite as tasteful. It is no longer the fashion to wear black velvet tied around the neck, as it ruins the shape of the throat, besides discoloring the skin. A few years ago a piece of velvet tied in this manner was considered quite a pretty thing. One feature of garniture of round hats and bonnets this season is the use of black or colored velvet facings on brims and diadems, thus counteracting the unbecoming effect of the yellow straws so much employed by mil liners.

Our readers will remember that it was announced sometime since that a voung man named George W. Pollak had fallen from the steamer General Lytle, on her downward trip to Louisville on the night of June 4th, and been drowned. The announcement created a good deal of excitement in life insurance circles^ for the foil wing good and sufficient reasons. George W. Pollak and his father Leo Pollak» arrived in this city on the last dav of May, the son coming from the South and the father from Philadelphia. On the following morni^, June 1, they repaired to the Cincitina-ti Mutual Life Insurance Company, 169 Race street, and Vice President Robertson was only too happy to issue a $10,000 policy upon the life of the young man.— llicy then proceeded to the Home Mutual, No. 31 West Third St., and Secretary Mc^Con-nell signed a 95,0C0 policy on the life plan, receiving one-quorter year's premium.

This was on Wednesday. On Saturday, the father and son took passage for Louis ville 01 the steamer General Lytle. At half-past eleven 0 clock 1».

The old gentleman cjimeback. and has presented his demand for the neat sum of $21,000. The insurance men declare they cannot "see it." They say that the body has not been found, and that it is no case for a Coroner, but a case for lawyers and detective oflicers; so they employed a good crops of both.
