Willett is now showing the largest and Most Complete Line of Furniture in the city, having Consolidated his large stock with that of C. W. Bittman, consisting of Furniture, Carpets, Draperies and Shades, Making a stock far superior to that of any ever offered in the ctty. Low Prices, Good Goods and Courteous Treatment is assured to all. DEE. SJST - WILLETT, No. 12 North Main Street, Next Door to the Grand. AJUM A SWOKDFISH. A "GLORIOUS" FISHING TRIP IN THE BAY OF FUNDY. 1V�v�i� LIIec the * high as a house. She pitched fearfully and she rolled awfully. Tobogganing was tiring me out. It suggested going in a hummock to tho other place. My stomach was queasy. "When are we goiug ashore?" I aeiked. "When we not bouib fish," said the skipper. "Thlrt is glorious." 1 stood up a minute longer heroically, aud then 1 calmly lay down in the bottom of the vessel-in my white llauuels, oh, beloved reader! In my white llanuels. It was wot, and mackerel had apparently just been ahovuled out of it, but 1 did not care. I waa indifferent as to what became of my clothes or myself. The skipper began to slug. 1 cast oue imploring look at him and- "Bring a bucket, Pete," he exclaimed to Hue other boy. Pete did as he was told. **Sayl Yer ailing ycr ganulntsl" remarked the skipper. I tried to remember the things ho had said about the unscrupulous mariner who stole his swordUah. The sloop lay wallowing tu the trough of the sea, aud 1 lay wallowing In the trough of the sloop. We got ashore some tibie toward night, and after lying on a pirn of boards for a ootiple of hours I got �q that 1 could stand �p and even speak a few words, Boeing tho Infant fiead jtmaUig up the got away f'm us and took tho harpoour That's what made tho cap'n so nil-fired mad coming home!" I shall not go swordfishing again till I feel better.-Grand Menan (N. B.) Cor. New York World. A Mao Who A to Iron. In The Iiritish Magazine for 1740 there la an account nf Heeves Williams, a nativo of Cardigan, ratling himself "tho Man Ostrich." lie performed various gastronomic feats before the public, who paid sixpence each to witness the edifying spectacle. Ho first swallowed four pieces of iron, each an inch and n quarter long and three-quarters of an inch thick. Thou lie swallowed, by way of dessert aud with apparent rtdlsh, pi ones, coach nails, halfpence and other trifles. THE LAST OF THE VETERANS. One of tho Few Survivors of TIiIh Coun-try*H Second War with England. Gen. Abraham. Dally, in full uniform and with numerous medals pinned upon his breast, was the only veteran of lBlil who turned out to do honor to "Washington's birthday, and ho was a guest of the Veteran Zouaves. The nbsence of others was so conspicuous as to cause people to ask. "What has become of tho rest of the company?" Tho fact is that death has gathered in tho brave defenders of tho Union, who rallied around its standard when it was for tho second time threatened by England's foes, until there is only a remnant of two or three left. A few years ago it was tho practice of the proprietors of the Fifth Avenue, tho Continental, or some of tho other hotels, to give the veterans a dinner on each of the holidays; but they have been neglected in this particular for a year or two. One reason for this neglect is that other than the veterans took tho opportunity to get u free dinner, having no claim upon the generosity of tho giver of tho feast other than that they were acquainted with some of the veterans. Hence this way of remembering the old heroes five or six times a year with a feast ultimately be came vexatious, and tho Inlands and others could not be blamed for discontinuing the custom. Tho reunions of tho "Veterans of 181U" have each year fallen off in attendance, however, and it is doubtful if there will ever he auother. Gen. Dally has seemed to surpass all of the others in physical strength as well as in length of life. Ho in in his ninety-fourth year aud more hale and hearty than most men at TO. Ho was born in this city, but for more than forty years has lived in the eastern district of Brooklyn. Ho inherits longevity, bis father living until he was 0* years old. Gen. Daily's wife, who was Ann Norman, came from a similar lineage of sturdy and prolific stock. She lived for sixty-live years after her marriage, and raised a family of lifteen children. Although duly five of the children are now living, the old veteran has more than fifty descendants still in the flesh, aud he is a great-g re ^-grandfather. His eldest son is about 73 years old.
