Last week Hams, decided that
he would take in tho Exposition,
and his friends decided to send
along Colonel Hamstring ns a sort
of halnnce-whccl to his well-known
jovial proclivities. Wo insisted on
attaching a safety-valve to even this
guardian, but friends of the par
ties decided it unnecessary.
After an absence of three days a
telegram, llmt smelt strongly of
the jiin-jams, arrived stating that
the pilgrims would reach Athens
on Friday evening, and a crowd of
anxious friends gathered around nt

and Ilia proprietor charged me $10

thirty days on the chain gang. 1

“And who paid you out?” was
the next question.
“Well, boys, I was in a rigid
skccry fix for awhile. I turned my
pocket wrong side out and all I
could consolidate was a pewter
quarter and two punched nickels.

The luxury and perfection of de

the world, probably, is so much
time nmt money expended upon
tiie furnishing and ornamenting of
the homes of the rich ns in tliis city.
Tho draping of curtains lias lie-
come a distinct branch of art, and
every decorator and upholsterer
lias one or more employes whose
sole business it is to arrange in
graceful folds the draperies, which
are now indispensable, at doors,
windows and fireplace. Even tliu
banisters must now be stulfcd and

of thousands ot dollars, upon ctp-

which arc to adorn tho sumptuous
palaces in which our rich men live,
l’nintings, statuary, carvings in
stone nnd wood, the richest fabrics
of French mid Indian looms, in
deed, all that is rnro and beautiful
iu nature ami art, arc brought to
hear upon the decoration of these
republican palaces. Even the Rtn-
blcs in which tho horses, coachmen;
and grooms me to lie housed arc
far more luxurious limn tbo simple
homes in which the fathers of our
race passed their lives. The newly
fini- lied stables of Cornelius Van

outshine those of the Roman Em

Recent Changes In Niagara-
One who returns to Niagara niter
n long absence notes tho' marked
changes taking placo in tho faco of
the cataract. My .first visit hero
was maile in 1844, thirty-seven
years ago. Thou tho broad ex
panse of Table Rock was tho plat
form on which successive thou
sands stood. Many crept softly to
the verge and looked into the abyss.
Others more cautiously lay on tlicir
faces and gazed at the crystal 1 cur

in a stream fro.:: the awful height.
Now the broad platform has fallen
nnd Uie work of undermining is
going still further on. in forty
vears more the present standpoint

more remarkable is the oliqugn in
tiie shape oDIiu Horseshoe Full
itself. Thun it was u perfect seg
ment of a circle, so nearly like tho
liee) of a horseshoe to suggest
the fitness of its name. Now vast
masses of rock have lieen dislodged
in tiie middle of tho curve, making
n sharp and wide diversion of tho
current, so that the torn at pours
into a midway gulf from which ilia
mist rises constantly. This does
not diminish, hut perhaps enhances
the interest of tlio cataract. It
breaks tliu circuit, destroys tiie
