A Kissing Drill.
After a few military evolutions,
tho lines are halted with all the girls
on one side of a space four feet
wide, and all the boys on the other.
The superintendent takes his place at
the head of the lines. “Attention I”
he shouts, and every boy and girl
straightens up with the hands at the
side. “About face!” The lines face
each other. “Present arms!” The
toys and girls stretch out their arms
toward each other. “Ready!” every
one draws a long breath and puckers
the lipsj “One”—a short step for
ward. “Two”—another short step
and the arms are crooked slightly
preparatory to embracing, “Three”
•—and the simultaneous smacking of
scores of kissing lips resound like the
rattling of musketry in a skirmish
“Hell" in Japan.
The Japanese language has
equivalent for our word, “hell,” but
has the name, “jigoku.” Jigoku con
sists of eight immense hot hells, rang
ing one beneath the other in tiers.
Each of these hot hells has sixteen
additional hells outside its gates, like
so many ante chambers, so that there
are in all 136 hot hells. There are
also eight large cold hells, each with
its sixteen ante-hells, making the same
number of cold hells as there are hot
hells. Besides these 272 cold and hot
hells for offenders of the common sort,
the wily Japs have arranged for twenty
mammoth hells of utter darkness, into
which will be consigned the lost
spirits of children who take the name
Dia Busta, or Great Buddah, in vain.
The entire line of the Alabama
Midland railroad is now graded from
Bainbridge, Ga., through Ozark and
Troy to Ada, on the Northwest and
Florida, with the excption of a few
miles at Troy. The line hns been in
operation between Bainbridge and
Ozark for some time and the track is
. now lain to near Troy. It is expect
ed to have trains running into Mont
gomery by December 1st. Tho sur
vey of the Montgomery, Tuscaloosa
and Memphis, the extension of the
Alabama Midland, has been complet
ed to near Tuscalooso. A plan is said
to be under consideiation of continu
ing this line beyond Tuscaloosu, on to
a connection south of Jasper, with
the Birmingham, Sheffield and Ten
nessee river road, and then running
over that line to Sheffield, and build
ing from there to Milan, Tenn., con
necting with the Illinois Central,
which would give a new line to the
Atlantic coast from the Mississippi
Valley, the Alabama Midland being
operated in harmony with the Plant
The West Virginia groom who was
to have been married recently was
on hour late in reaching his bride’s
home. When he got there he found
that she had just been married to bis
best man. She expected him at least
an hour before the timo set for the
ceremony, and when he did not ap
pear she became a trifle annoyed.
Half an hour after the time she was
in os fine a temper os can well be
imagined, and fifteen minutes after
that she asked the best man to take
the bridegroom’s place. The girl
was young, good looking and well to
do, and the best man was handsome
buLpoor. He demurred for an in-,
stant'and then gave in.
At the Opera—My dear sir, how
much your daughter has grown this
last summer. I can scarcely believe
it. Why, her dress scarcely reaches
to her shoulders.—Fliegende Blaetter.
It begins to look ns if the better

present legislature. They should
provide for its settlement.
