in Kngiand and upon the continent.
One Ilf these wus a fi .e bantiug-seat
in Scotland, in which he was spending
the nutumu ni»nths; and ahouting uii
which t)u3 day he had lost bis way.
Never in bis wanderings over land or

then burst at once into gnrgenus luve-

to receive into it Rachel’s image.
And why did her heart flatter so with

to remain until the morrow?
F>ir all that unwitting of the true at

when, after the strangei’s stay bad
lengthened into wnekii, ha sr>ught him
one raornina and told him the real at

The old gentleman was greatly sur
prised, and answered:
••My daugcter must marry iu her own

over young yet to make her choice.
You do us honor, sir, by your proposal;
but the time will come when you will

“Sir, sbe shall be cherished as slie de

A young wife in Michigan had just
got settled 10 her netv homo. All
seemed fair nnd proniising, fur she did
nut kauw that her husbnud was a
drunkard, liut ono night he came
homo at a very Inte hour, and very
much the worso for liquor. When he
staggered into the house tho wife, who
was grcully shocked, tnld him ha wus
sick, and lo lie down at unco ; and in a
moment ur two ho was otiniCortably
settled on the sofa in a drunken sleep.
Ills face was a reddisb-purple, bis
breathing was heavy, and altogether he
waa A pitiable looking object. The
doctor wus sent for post-haste, and
mustard applied to bis feet and bands.
^Vhoa tho doctor canip, be felt b^s
pulse, and examined him, and flnding
that he was only drunk, be said;
“lie will be all right in the morn
But the wife insisted that ho was
very sick, and that severe remedies
must be used.
‘•You must «b#vc bis bend and apply
bristarn,” she urged, “ur 1 will send for
some one who will.”
The husband’s head was accordingly
shaved closely and blisters applied.
The patient lay all night in a drunken
sleep, and notwithstanding tbe blisters
was eating into the ttesb, it was not till
near morning that be began to beat
about, disturbed by pain. About day
light he waked up tu a most unconifort
itble consciousness of blistering agonies
“What docs this mean?” he said,
putting bis bands to bis bandaged
"Lie still—you musn’t stir,” aaid
tho wile, “you have been taken very
“j’m not .sick.”
"0, yes you are; you have tho brain
fever. We have wjrked with you nearly
all night.” ^
‘•I should think you bad,” groaned
the. poor victim; “what’s the matter

“They arc blistered.”
“Well, I’m better now; take ofT tho
blisters, do,” he pleaded piteously.
He was in a most uncomfurtable
sta'e—bis liead covercd with sores,
and his feet and hands were still worse.
“Dear,” be said, groaaing, “if [
should ever be sick in this way again,
don’t bo alarmed and send lor tbe
doctor; and above all, don’t blister mo
“O, indeed t will—all that saved you
were tbo blisters, and if you ever have
another such spell, I should bo more
frigbteoed than ever, for the tendency I
am sure is to apoplexy, and from the
next attack, if you ever have another,
you would be like to die, unle«s there
were tbo severest roeanes used.”
He made no farther defence; but
snflice it to lajr that he was never

General honor by paradiug bis com
mand in frnut of tbo inn in which
Hardee bad rooms, Tbe writer upon
tactics came out upon the balcony to
review the command, and tlie oiiiitia
olHcer put his meu through their paces.
In ono of the the daDO! ivers the men
bccame confused and got isto e hope
less tangle, Hardee, in telling tbe
story, said he could think of no possible
way in which they might be extricated,
and waited wilb great curiosity to see
what the militia commander would do.
Tbe tactician loukcd at tbe confused
mass fur a moment with a scowl of per
plexity upon bis forehead; tben his face
cleared, und he shunted the order.
••Disentangle to tbo front; march,"
Whereupon tbe men rushed forward
and formed a new line wilbout regard
to the order of tbo uid one. Hardee
said the command waa not iu hii own
or any other book on tactics, bat that
it ODght to be.
