What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Inn You OUT OF FASHION. VERYBODY HAS gone out of town for lhe season,' Mrs. Townsend sud denly remarked at the breakfast table, one morning. — rho Drurys left far Lake George yester- day, the Tennanta are to spend the summer at Petos- key and even the Stantons have managed to rig them- selves out, and have gone on a jaunt. One might as well be out of the world as out of fashion.\ Mr. Townsend thoughtfully helped himself to fried potatoes, and observed that he would have to invest in a sum- mer hat. \Now 'see here, John,\ said Mrs. Townsend, sitting bolt upright in her chair and emphasizing her remarks with a pudgy forefinger, \those Stan - tons haven't any more of this world's goods than we have, yet off they go, with a great flourish to spend a month at Beechsidt,\ \I don't see where you'd find a pleas- anter place than this, in which to pass the summer,\ Mr. Townsend mildly re- monstrated, \besides I'm a little short, just now,—there's that note to Meet in July—\ \Of course you can't understand why I want to go—being a man—\ said Mrs. Townsend, witheringly, \but I simply can't stand the airs of those Stantona. It need not cost very much—we might go into the country.\ \I'll see,\ said Mr. Townsend, non- committal, as usual. The month of July went out with a sudden rise of the thermometer, and a general exodus of townspeople took place. Mrs. Townsend, after a careful pe- rusal of alluring advertisements, set- tled on \Silver Creek\ as the place most likely to meet her expectations. - Best of table board at moderate rates; fine fishing, boating and bathing; free transportation to and from trains.\ Mr. Townsend agreed to \run down\ for Sundays, and Mrs. T., with dire misgivings, handed her keys over to the \help\ that had promised to keep murmured Mrs. Townsend, with grim humor. \Ni danger of drowning there.\ \Fishin' did you say, Marin? There's plenty o' fish to be got rout o' that thar creek tri th' spring o' th' year. Wouldn't think It, would yeou?\ \But why should Mr. Tucker adver- tise fishing when the season is over?\ queried Mrs. Townsend. \Oh that thar advertisement, Murro, was omit' th' Squire copied out'n an old noospaper. I hearn him say as how it read puny well, an' he thought t'would do.\ Mrs. Townsend, tired, hungry and dust -laden as she was, gave vent to hysterical mirth, but managed to re- strain herself as with a lusty \Whoa!\ the young Jehu brought the turnout to a standstill, before the farm house. The change from the glaring sunlight to the comparative coolness of the farm house sitting room was most welcome, and the kindly greeting of the Squire and his good wife left nothing to be de- sired. But used as she was to a well ap- pointed, modern dwelling the sparsely furnished rooms seemed to Mrs. Town- send uncomfortable and cheerless. At the tea table Mrs. Townsend was informed that \t'other lady boarder had a headache,\ and would not be down that evening. They 'met at breakfast, however, and when Mrs. Russel—which was the other boarder's name—had showed Mrs. Townsend a brand new crochet stitch, they became fast friends. Even cro- cheting will pall on one, however, and having neglected to lay in a supply of reading matter, the two ladles yaWne4 the afternoon away. \You've no doubt heard the expres- sion 'ten miles from a lemon,' \ said Mrs. Russel as they sat on the front \stoop\ the radiance of the moonlight all about them, the murderous hum of blood- thirsty mosquitoes filling the air. \In my case it is 'ten miles from a soda fountain.' What wouldn't I give for an ice cold draught this minute.\ \I wonder wh' all farm houses have Brussels carpet and hair cloth furni- ture in the parlor?\ queried Mrs. Town- send, irrelevantly. a. .And green paper shades,\ Mrs. Rus- sel supplemented. \Do you think they'll have salt pork for breakfast again?\ Mrs. T. asked, anxiously. \Sure to.

Not entirely sanguine, yet hopeful, withal, Mrs. Townsend pocketed her baggage cheek and stepped aboard the train that was to bear her to her desti- nation. After a long journey, with the usual miseries attendant upon a trip with the thermometer at 90 degrees, she found herself \Sidetracked in a wheat- field\—to use her own expression—an object of great Interest to a tow -headed youth and a raw-boned cart horse. \Will you tell me how I can get to Mr. Tucker's house?\ she ventured to inquire of the former. \Reckon I kin, if yeou be the Mis' Townsen' what's coming t' board,\ he rejoined. This being confirmed, he brought the rawboned nag alongside the platform, shifted the various bags and bundles with which the wagon was heaped to make room for Mrs. Town- send's mart trunk, and cordially in- vited that lady to \jump aboard.\ \Square Tucker couldn't came him- self, 'cause they're makin' a new hog . pen t'day,\ he explained, as he cracked Lhe whip over the nag's lean flanks. The wheels of the lumbering vehicle, turn- ing clumsily In the deep sand of the road, sent up suffocating clouds of dust; the sun heat pitilessly upon their un- protected heads. \How far Is It to Square Tucker's?\ inquired Mrs. Townsend. \Oh a matter o' six Mlles,\ he of the tow -head respondail, cheerfully. Mrs. Towneend's heart fainted within ber. At A turn of thé road the wagon rumbled over a rustic bridge, beneath which a shallow stream mennerred, seareely wetting the Pun -dried sien\ \That tharat Silver Creek,\ maid th , boy, pointing with his whip liver should. - r \Tolher bend ain't 111., n half ta mlle nom Squire's.\ - Fishing and boating made ene and they've only skipped two morn- ings:\ It was even so: salt pork seemed to be a staple article at Squire Tucker's, and as for berries, fresh vegetables. etc., they were only to be obtained at \the Corner\ and were frequently the reverse of fresh. \Why don't you have a garden?\ asked Mrs. Townsend. \I thought all farmers raised small fruits and vege- tables.\ \Well I ain't much of a hand to put- ter with a garden,\ the Squire made re- ply. There ain't a farm nigh that yields better crops of grain th'n mine, though,\ he proudly added. Mrs. T. thought regretfully of the appetising alade she was wont to pre- pare for luncheon. At the end of the week Mrs. Runnel received a summons home, and after tossing pleeplensly through a hot mos- quito haunted night, Mrs. Townsend came to the conclusion that there were other things as desirable as \being In fashion.\ So the raw-boned nag hauled two trunks to the station in the mcirning, Instead of one. \'There's no place like home,'\ said Mrs. Townsend to Mrs. Russel. \It must be tree that 'familiarity breeds A contempt, else people would reallie the truth of that saying and find rest and recreation in their own homes.

One or the Ways in Which a titan May Perpetuate His Memory. A man may win widespread and long -enduring fame by founding an in- stitution of learning which Shall - bear his name, says New York Sun. The cry - Cornell\ was heard over England last week --it had long been familiar in the United States; and the years have added lustre to the memory of Ezra Cornell, who founded the university at Ithaca, N. Y., which was chartered thirty years ago, and opened for stu- dents in 1868, during the Presidency of Andrew Johnson. The name of the Rev. John Harvard of England and Massachusetts has been commemorated for more than two centuries and a balf as the founder of Harvard college, now known as liarvard university. The name of Ellin] Yale, born in New Haven, Conn., died in England, is em- balmed in Yale university, formerly known as Yale college, which enjoyed his benefactions in the first quarter of the eighteenth century. In California there is Stanford university, named af- ter a son of the late Leland Stanford; there is the Johns Hopkins university in Baltimore; there is Vanderbilt uni- versity in Tennessee: there is Vassar college near Poughkeepsie called after Matthew Vassar, and there are many other u,riiversities or colleges called af- ter their founders or benefactors. The 'Rev Dr. Marcus Whitman, a pioneer in the farthest west, is commemorated in Whitman college, soon to be university, in the state of Washington. If one can- not found a university or a college, a seminary may serve to perpetuate name. At East Hampton, in Massa- chusetts, there is Williston seminary, named after their founders. It may be ton; and there are in the country hun- dreds of other institutions of the kind named after their founders. It may be inferred from the examples here that the man who desires to perpetuate his memory would do well to establish a university, college, seminary, or other institution of learning, and give it -hie name. BEES AT ASCOT. They Made Things Lively at the Itikee- Track for a While. A curious incident occurred at Ascot. While a large number of pleasant luncheon parties were enjoying the de- lights ot an open-air repast in the gar- dens behind the grand stand a great swarm of bees settled down on the guests around a table in a corner. says London Telegraph. They buzzed and buzzed everywhere. Ladies had bees in their bonnets and gentlemen found their hats turned into striking like- nesses of \Catch-'em-alive-oh's.\ Some of the swarm settled on the cold sal- mon, and other members of it tumbled into the champagne cup. In fact, the bees created the greatest consternation among the ladies and gentlemen in that portion of the grounds. They were gradually drawn off the luncheon party by a gentleman, to whom occurred the happy idea of treating them to a little music on a metal tray under a tree. After the tapping or tinkling on the article had continued for two or three moments the queen bee settled on the branches above to listen to it, and was at once followed by all the swarm. It was an extraordinary sight to see hun- dreds of the insects hanging like great black and gold clusters on the tree while the tinklink continued. It ceased with the luncheon, and the bees did no more harm. In the earlier part of the performance a lady was pretty severely stung. Enough to !fake a Horse Laugh.
