How much I gained on it I won't say, or mother would fall into a faint and not sleep for five nights. Your Homo Sachaliensis, A. CHEKHOV. STEAMER "YERMAK," June 20, 1890. Greeting, dear ones at home!

George put down his log, and then looked at his fingers critically. "I am very sorry, Miss Sewell, but I am not fit to touch. I hope your headache is better." Miss Sewell dropped her hand meekly, shot him a glance which was not meek, and said demurely: "Oh! my headaches do what they're told. You see, I was determined to come down and congratulate you."

"If you do this," she concluded, "you will have the merit of making Emilie happy." I took down the man's name, and promised to do my best with the princess.

The Confederate Commissioners were carried to the castle, and told they might congratulate themselves on not sharing the cell prepared for Glamorgan. "Go back," they were told, "to Kilkenny and tell the President of the Council, that the Protestants of England would fling the King's person out at his window, if they believed it possible that he lent himself to such an undertaking."
