After much and earnest argument pro and con,
the old people became reconciled by stero neces

to fly and sputter about the bouse, to collect the
ahirta and darn the stocking of Jabcjr that ha

Deacon Fickleby insisted that he should ride the
young horse aa far as the first turnpike gate, and
he would accompany him, on the old nag, to bring
back the half broken animal referred to.
At the great turnpike barricade, the deacon pro
nouhced his parting benediction as follows t
' My son, I have endeavored lo breed you up ia

that you doiit stray into by and forbidden paths ;
