Having a nuVsomil knowledge, of iis origin, I will trouble you to give space, to. the -following true The term originated with TigerEiigine Com- pany's boys on Second street in ISoD'in this wise: Jimmy Ltullnm, Arthur Hainc, Par- cello, mvself and a few more of the boys were wont, on pleasant evenings to sit'smokingoiir cigars in our chairs, tipped back against the wall of the house. As an incident of by-gone pleasant times, I remember of a couple of girls who regularly passed by, when, if Jimmy aforesaid was around, he generally got a s'wert smile from 0116 or both.' Some- times he would join them and walk a block or two. At this lime nitbi.'is" were much worn, and the boys, observing these twbgirls always wore them, soon giwe them us a dis- tinguishing title: "The 'Girls with the though some" were content to call Iheiii Lmlliim's girls. A compromise between the two titles 'was soon struck, and "here comes .the hoodlum girls" was quite sufficient to bring Jimmy to the trout, as thegirls came down from the direction of Howard street..' These young girls were of that class who we're tlien, AS now, frequent attendants at the cheap balls and (laimnlc, and when it' became ncuaaaryto place any par- ticular female in this'class, we 'knew of no more expressive title than' (what was then considered ns having a more limited 'applica- tion; than it now has) "homllmh girl.'-' ,'fhc title soon'.after spread lo: the cqrrtsnoftdirig class of: young men, aiul the meaning it-now An oiDcer attached Lo the: United States Coast survey steamer McArthur, writes to tiia San Francisco Chronicle concerning a test of the great -pressure of the'sea, referring to-a recent item published .in that Draper to the cti'e.et that a champagne to a certain depth would 'Uise its 'coiitfetrts and become tilled with.sea water: Iii yijur issue" October ISth I find an article JSnormons .Pressure of the Sea." Haying made the experiment, that is, lowered a pint bottle of champagne lo a great depth, and having had an entirely different result, from the one -alluded to, 1 take the liberty to ad- dress you1 these few- lines. About two years' ago 1 was attached to the -steamer Tuscarom and had charge of the soiuuling.for -a cable from San Francisco to 'Brisbane, Australia. When sounding near the. Hue t bent a: pint bottle of to the wire and lowered it to the depth of fathoms, or 'miles. At that depth the' bottle was subjected to. a pressure of about 3.8 tons per -square inch. The bottle was submerged for over :lliree hoursi'bnt came up in good- condition. The contents were also all right. The champagne, however, was icc-cnltl when brought to the surface and was tasteil by half a dozen officers who could detect uo sighs of sei water. Weak A very simple remedy .for weak or sore eyes is recommended as follows; Get, a five-cent cuke of elder' flowers at the druggist's, and steep 'in one gill of s'oft water it must sleupvd. in bright tin .or, earthenware; strain nicely, and then add three drops laudanum; bottle it tisht and keep in a cool place; then use it as a wash, letting sonic of it get in the eyes. Follow this, and telief is certain. II the eyes are painful or much sore, make small compresses, wet in tlie mixture, arid bind over the cyes-at night. I can warrant tho ab'pve as harmless and sure, having tried it in a num- ber .of. cases where other skill and remedies had utterly failed. .If the eyes are bailly in- flamed .use it very freely; anil a tea made of elder .flowers, and .drunk, would help'cleanse the blood. Pure' rock salt anil water will strengthen your weak eyes" if -you bathe them daily in it. 1 would earnestly advise yon to avoid inixuires or washes containing nunemS or other .TIie.stile-.ifGe'iiei it iK-inoiii'spm-iiepiop oriy a short time ago in Jxen oik, w is jigspld uiu- Genual intends goinit to wrapped up in a 'bale1 any clothc's on' tie. river with' exh'ibiied" much' the sam'u disregard of Times.' i- Burlington''jlawkeye ii'ails. another- canipaign lie to the counter: "Woman is' iresiful, living, .bounding angel, but'it'siiakes her. confidence terribly when her husband' comes lioiiie at 1'o'clock iii the ryiiig a dozen mess mackerel oii'a string, aiid; tuiskilv p.vnlntus ".t.ivlf.
