San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - September 30, 1891, San Antonio, Texas She Gailija sight. Wednesday september 30, �?T91. And she was a gird and the Young Many a trouble came too Date. In Princeton Gibson county iud., an incident occurred during Quot annual Institute week Quot that will soon sink into oblivion among the unfortunate participants and the Good people of that educational Centre. In this sensation two Well known instructors were Central figures. The facts briefly stated Are As follows Brown Lester and Hayes secured lodging with a private family during the week and were assigned to double rooms. Everything ran smoothly till thursday evening when a popular lecturer at the City Hall took the occupants away for a time. At a late hour Brown and Lester tired and weary returned. Finding no Lucifer at hand they retired in separate rooms without illuminating. Soon Brown was apprised of the fact by the Light of the Moon that he was not alone and after discovering the sex of Bis fair partner he cautiously withdrew to Lester a Couch to keep him company but with his curiosity ready to explode thinking perhaps he was Only the victim of some huge joke. Morpheus soon got in his work and the occurrence was forgotten. An hour later records the arrival of Hays who had been out with his Best girl and he too quietly retired without a Light in the same room and in the same bed recently vacated by his co labourer. Sleep soon overtook him and strange As it May seem until aroused next morning neither he nor his Gay companion were cognizant of the awful breach of etiquette or that they had been peacefully resting Side by Side since Browne a exit earlier in the evening. On realizing their dilemma the scene enacted can better be imagined than described. The household was soon informed of the episode even to details and All were forced to believe by the innocence displayed that the Accident was wholly excusable Evi gently this was t n u Leo ii item occurrence but no harm was done other than gently tampering with the dignity of the pedagogues. Just the reception this unusual and amusing departure will receive in their respective social circles when this is submitted for perusal can scarcely be predicted. Later investigations deduced the fact that that apartment was previously occupied by the Damsel in question who in the absence of the family had returned unexpectedly Aud made herself at Home repairing to her customary quarters Little anticipating such a novel Climax. That the female aggregation was completely dumbfounded Aud embarrassed goes As evident that explanations Aud apologies flowed freely is beyond doubt mat More care and caution will be exerted in the future and Madam gossip thereby derived of another pedagogical Case of misplaced intentions is absolutely certain. The Anatomy of the Oyster not so simple As he seems. A Clam is considered As the Emblem of stupidity and callousness. But you will make As great a mistake if you put the Oyster in the same category As when you class a chinaman and a japanese together. The Oyster is so Strong of muscle As we All know that no human augers Are Able alone to open the doors of his domicile if he chooses to keep them closed liver and stomach and digestive organs As complicated As the human lungs machinery for obtaining his water Supply and for preventing an Over Aow and wondrously contrived mechanism for the trapping of his food. Finally he has a heart whose pulsations May be seen after his House has been torn from him. With this very limited understanding of the Anatomy of the Oyster it is not difficult to comp ret and How cultivation Aud care May hot Only improve its outward appearance and augment irs lines of Beauty but How they also cause the Quality of its meat to surpass that of the natural or uncultivated Oyster As much As Grain fed poultry sup sees the product of the barn Yard. When your Host places before you oysters that Are plump Aud round and thick Aud deep and Light Elored and mantled narrowly by a fringe quiet thick to the very Edge then you May be sure that they have not Only lived with a few disturbances but under a High state of Quot the biography of the Oyster by Edward l. Wilson in october Scribner. Origin of the postage stamp. From the Book keeper few people perhaps realize of How recent origin is the postage stamp. It was Aret issued by great Britain in 1840. Brazil was the Aret nation to follow the example which they did in 1843, and in 1817 the United states began to use the postage Stamps. A there Are now 211 stamp issuing countries. It is estimated now that every year some 50,,000,0 0 letters Are posted in the world. America leads with Over 25,000,000.000, and England follows with 700,0i 0. To Japan now mails annually 95 000,-000 letters Aud the canal led Stamps on these letters Are Worth on an average of to each. Last year there were 26,000 letters posted in England without any address on them. In 1600 of these Gold Coin and Money were enclosed. The cancelled postage Stamps of Many countries Are Worth quite As much As unused specimens Aud Many Are issued solely tor collections the Revenue being an important item.
