Beautiful Mrs. Langtry.
An American paper thus discourses on England’s most famous beauty “ The most beautiful woman in all England is Mrs. Langtry. It is said that she is so sweet that when you look at her yoii feel caterpillars crawling up the small of your back, your heart begins to jump like a box car, a streak of lightning goes down one trousers leg and up the other, and escapes up the back of your neck, causing the hair to raise and be filled with electricity enough to light a circus tent, and that when looking at her your hand clutches nervously as though you wanted to grasp something to hold you up, and a sense of faintness comes over you, your eyes roll heavenward, your head falls helpless on your breast, your left side becomes numb, your liver quits- working, your breath comes hot and heavy, your lips turn livid and tremble, your teeth chew on iinagin-. ary toffy, and you look round imploringly f.ii’ somebody to take her away. If all this occurs to a person from looking at her,' it would bo sudden death or six months’ illness to shake hands with her. If she comes here, there is one bald-headed man going into the country, where they are not so bad. You bet ! ”
