Not a hundred miles from here, there
were two very aged men, who were
both members of the same church. —
One was generally known by the ap
pellation of uncle Jackey, the other,
daddy Zekiel. Daddy Zekiel was very
deaf? it was with great difficulty that
any one cculd make him understand
what was said to him. He always took
his dram, and would sometimes take
too much. For this, the Church sent
uncle Jackey to see him. He found dad
py Zekiel in his chair-shop, at work.—
Afterthe usual salutations, uncle Jackey
commenced his arduous task as follows:
‘Well, brother Zekiel, cbe report has
reached the Church that you have been
taking too much dram.’
Daddy Z., pointing to a chair, said,
•that is fifty cents.’
‘You don’t understand,’ said uncle
Jackey. ‘The Church has heard that
you have been taking too much dram !’
Daddy Z., pointing to another chair,
again said, ‘that kind is worth sevety
five cents—and is as good a chair as
any man can make.*
Uncle Jackey, a little irritated and
speaking as loudly as possible, said,
‘we’ve heard that you have drunk too
much dram !’
‘No, brother Jackey,’ replied daddy
Z. in a tone that indicated his sorrow,
‘I haven't got a drap, or I would give
you a dram now.’
Uncle Jackey was completely non
plused, and gave up the job in despair.

‘To-day our murder market is steady,

eight convicted murderers iti the Tombs,

Lydia Thompson and Alexis.— The
latest conquest of Lydia Thompson has
been in securing a favorable recognition
from the Grand Duko. He visited tho
Olympic Theatre in .St. Louis a few
evenings since, and was so well pleased
with the fair Lydia that he ordered his
