' ,No, he's not,'said liliss Foxe. ' Ac least, I heard him tell Colonel Copley that he was entirely fancy free.  ' Humph!' said Mrs. Brushby.

And if, by any chance, Clara wiA invited to join in any of the neighborhood festivities, Mrd. Brushby made haste to deiine for her.  ' Clara neverjioes out,' said she.

The green eyes scintillated sharply.  ' Why shouldn't he marry either you or me, Felicia Foxe?' asked Mrs. Brush-by.  Miss Foxe gave a sort of gasp, as if sliQ had attempted to swallow some morsel too large for her.  ' Why, he ain't thirty!' said she. , ' Neither am I,' said Mrs. Brushby.  • Now, Cornelia Brushby, there ain't no sort of use coming that game over me,' said Miss Foxe, fairly aroused at last into antagonism. 'You waseight-and-twenty when you married Brushby, and he's been dead and buried these ten goodyeard!'  Mrs. Brushby laughed.

It was in the land force at Carthagena that Lawrence Washington, George's elder brother by fourteen years, had served, and appar»-ently he'esteemed Vernon, as he gave his name to his home on the Potomac, and procured a midshipman's appointment for George, but his mother's ik-terposition ultimately prevented tho boy's availing himself of it, albeit she at first Gonsonted. Vernon's popularity was so great t hat bis unlucky expedition does not seem to have affectcd it^ and he was actually elected to parliament for three places at once on his return. P robably his known hostility to the government had much to do with this. In 1745 he was detailed to watch the North sea, in view of a movement of Ihe pretender's adherents. The next year a serious squabble arose between him and tlie governments resulting in his producing two pamphlets, which so exasperated the authorities that by the king's ex press command he was struck off the list of. admirals. He died in 1757, at his seatin Suffolk, and, notwithsta|iding his disgrace, a handsome monument to him was erected in Westndnster abbey.

Captain J. Mullett says that he has captured every sea-lion now exhibited anywhere in the world. He was for many years master of an English vessel in the guano trade, and it was whil^ lying off the Chinclia islands of South Americfiithat he studied and became interested in the sea-liop. Being told that this animal would bo a valuable addition t& the zoological gardens and traveling menageries, he gave up his occupation and engaged in the new venture, capturing the animals on the coast of California, the only other place; where they are to be found, and the best place in point of proximity to the routes of travel. He has several vessels em-  ployed in the trade. Finding what |s called a rookery of sea-lions on the rocks along the coast, his men approach stealthily, lasso the beasts, caze them, fasten lines to the cage?, ttirow the cages into the surf, and float them to the vessels lying beyond the surf. Captain Mullett has  captured 200 sca-lions.—Their average price to showmen is $1,000. He has provided the showmen, dealers and gardens of San Francisco. Chicago, St Louis, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, New York, England and Germany with specimens of this race of aquatic beasts. At first the sea-lion wa^ transported in a special car, containing a tank of water When tliè'water grew foul the animal died. Now it is not found necessary to use a tank if the animals body is occasionally moistened. The sea-lion ferocious at firat, but Is easily tamed and becomes obedient. The captain says that no other imimal, except the elephant, is So intelligent. Four sea lions that were captured by Captain Mullett are now in Central Park, said that wherever there is a sca-  t "tiilNr ^irtie  SoJightly expromed And so oarelessly uttered, Li on« of the b^t ^^  ■ With life work b^ffim^^ ' j Tlie dieep, earnestmeaàiìig Ot " In ,  Thesëedivin i '  Ttiat WM sown in thtgtg^if  Or dropped In the oftp.''' ^ And remember, no roses ^ Wm spring lioin tbv S^lji i And no beauti^ todfr. . j -Prom the iinwo^y sMi« t.os  How many^^striplior  In trouble to.day,  By riotous liWttg ' / I  Wit6 comrades too ^y; t Witb etotaoFer'sluptfr^^  Ana~auti6s uuaonej Will dor sorrow'« hatvwttwr A  in the long ran..'^ ,  "In the long run" will  Thpto^erimwb^i^ Wbo~p^rtormB~honosna^r And takes honest xesl; ■ .
