Amusing Story of a Teacher.
At the ago cf tixfecn, before we liail
our "ronndabonls," we con'rueted to
"keep school"' in i drift No. 5, for
twelve dollars per mouth and "hoard
ing ronLd." We knew very well the
little red schoolhouse, standing at the
exact center of tho district, on the
boriIet8 of a mighty swamp, the farm
houses scattered about tho hill , ami we
uleo knew tho nuisance of that particu
lar Nchool, a Bqnad of half a dozen rou.ti
fellows who hail energed into ''tail
coats," and who wonld hardly relish the
riisciplino of a hoy pedagoguo i i a
After th fust flush of elation at onr

a rctnrn wave of ico water, that, i 1 all
human probability, ere onr seventeenth
birthday sloul I dawn, wo should be
feen vanishing, head foremost, out of
tho school lionse window into a big
(now drift, propelled by class No, 1 of
In our anii"ty we applied to Annt
Anna, the general oracle of the house
hold. Annt Anna was a stalwart maidon
of sixty summers, gigantio in propor
tions, but every inch a lady in her dear
old heart. She had nursed half the
children in town through tho meat-lea,
mumps and chfcken pox, and was tho
mainstay in all family emergencies.
There were sly rumors that the occa
i na attack of "fidgets," which over
came the good old lady at night, had
some relation to a mysterious black
bottle which sho always carried in her
work-bag; but Aunt Anna, plus the
fidgets, was worth a regiment of ordi
nary feniinines for the home-mado uses
of conntiy life.
"Well, now, you are really cninR to
keep sohool in district No. 5," said
Annt Anna, smoothing down her big
rheoked apron, and raising her specta
cles for a good long look atthe incipient
pedagogue seated at the opposite
cornel of the fire place.
''Yes, Aunt Anna, I have proaiised to
keep that school, but, between yon and
roe, 1 am dreadfully afraid to tackle
that rowd of boys. You know what a
rough et they are, and one of them has
already given out that there will be no
board wanted in district No. 5 afUr the
"That's serious matter. Now let's
see if we can't think of romething to
help you. Now you see that I don't
know anything about book-larnin. No
doubt you can cipher that back seat of
boys into the middle of noxt week. But
they can fling you over the roof of the
schoolbouse in a jiffy, if they have a
mind to. I know every family in the
district. I've nussed in every house,
and takon the measure of every young
ster that will come to that school.
There's one thing in your favor. There'll
be ten great gals in school, and most of
'em are good girls, too. Now some are
a head taller than yon, and two or three
of 'em are right handsome, too. They
can twist that crowd of groat, bashful
boys round tbtir little finger, if they
want to. Now mind what I tell yon;
do yon go right to work and gain the
affections of them ten great gala, and
they'll manage the boys while you keep
That sounded well; and, armed with
this panacea against rebellion, we
opened school the Monday after Thanks

on the bigb seats that row of villain-

So things drifted for six weeks,
when dawned the judgement day.
We had gone to board with a good,
mother'y woman, who loved us as her
own son. A big fire in the parlor
greeted our arrival, and a supper tit
for the parson himself. After tea onr
hestess oppeared in her bet black
silk, in her hand a mighty oak "ruler,"
and sat down before us with the are
of a Minerva, saying,
"Now matters havo como to a point

There was no appeal from that. A
greater than the whole class of "great
gali" had spoken, and we folt in our
souls that fatn was standing at tho
school -house door.
Were wo endowed with the epic rage
of a ITomcr or a Pope, wo might possi
bly depict tho f ernes of the following
lay. How the ugliest loafer, in u frock
co-it, l icked in the door at recess ; how,
when the trembling young master aked,
Who did that?'1 the big boor lifted his
thumb to his nose, and executed that
significant gyration with the little
finger which would make a savage of
St. John himself ; how, fired with the
OMirae of despair, and a vision of our
farmhouie Minerva, wo seized the big
oak rnler, rushed up the inclined plane,
upsetting several small children on the
way, plunged at the throat of the inso
lent scoundrel, tore off the collar of his
frock-coat, snaked him down the area
before the fire place, and beat him over
the head and shoulders till he roared
for mercy ; how, at intervals, he cast a
glance up at his accomplices, and took
in the situation the "ten great gals"
had spiked the guns of all but this
wretch, who slunk and begged under
our hands ; how wo wound up with an
eloquent address, and gave the whipped
ruffian Iii-i hat, with instructions to go
home ; how his sensible father took off
whit remained of his dilapidated frock-
coat, and trounced him till he yelled
again, and sent him to school the fol
lowing day with a compliment to the
plucky young master all this might b
sung in heroic verse.
But, if the truth were known, it was
not we, bnt the "ten great gals," that
did the business. They had so demor
alized the attacking columns by the
magic of their charms, that only one
had tho heart to defy the little master,
and he dared not lift his hand when the
day of battle came. And from that day
we crowned dear old Aurt Anna
prophetess of love.
Gain the affections of tho "ten great
gals" in your schoolroom, and "all
things shall work together for good."
A Missing Bridegroom.
Many guests met at the Threekeld
mansion, in Kinsas city, to witness the
marriage of Theodore Medeker to Miss
Dora Threekeld. At the hour appointed
the bridegroom was missing. Search
was made high and low. The guest
who seemed to enjoy the trouble was
Charles E. Smiley, who thoroughly
earned his beaming name upon that oc
casion. It furthermore appears that
tho bride was not at all fretted by
Medsker's absence, for the reason that
the match was of her mother's making
and against her own desire. In the
interval between the departure and re
turn of those who had gone to find the
groom Smiley got in his argument and
his work. The drawback waa the license,
but that difficulty was surmounted by
the legal blotting out of Medsker's and
the insertion of Smiley'a name. So it
happened that Miss Threekeld became
Mrs. Smiley and that, after all, the
company took the oake.

N. firiflin, at the j'mira Farmers'
Club, said : "There is no tubstitute
for clover, so fur at I know nothing to
take its place. It is bettor in its effect
on land than uny other foiage plant. It
is said that a good crop of clover say
such a crop as will yield two tous of
cured hay from an acre will leave an
equal weight of rcotn for the soil. That
ia like a coat of manure. I am sorry to
hear that clover is falling into disrepute,
for its renovating power is greater than
that of any other plant. Lately clover
does better than in a few years past, so
I hopo we shall soon, have till the old
measure of success. Many years ago the
farms in Dutches conuty used to give
largo crops of timothy and thof were
taken away aud sold. Thoso farms arc
now exhausted ruined because tho
crops were taken off. But clovor is
never all tnken off when tho roots nre
left. Forty-five years ago a great deal
of timothy was raised in Tompkins
county and the land that produced it
ran down und sr its production and the
ccenpants had to tnrn their attention to
clover. At first it was diflicnlt to get
it established, but littio by Iittlo uinler
its influence tho lands grew better.
Farmers had to ditch their lands as the
first condition, then they used plaster,
rind at lost got full crops of clover and
better crops of grain, for their lands
improved through clover. Hungarian
grass has been tried, but, like timothy,
when the, crop is taken eff nothing is
left and the soil becomes poor. The
best crop is that which leaves most to
the soil, and that is what clover does.
I hope it will not lose its place in our
farming, for there is no other plant so
beneficial in its effect."
Carroll a Food for Cattle.
In Europe the carrot if grown to a
great extent for feeding to cattlo in the
winter months. Boots of some kind are
fed the winter through to tie cows. An
Iowa raiser of Jersey cows soys he i
accustomed to feed carrots, of wliioh he
usually raises 600 bushels per acre.
Carrots increase the flow of milk and
improve the appearance and quality of
butter. Beets are preferablo to carrots
for increasing the flow of milk ; the
milk, however, which is produced, from
beets it not as good for butter. The
breeder mentioned above has found it
difficult to raise his calves on clear
Jersey milk, and advises the feeding of
that which has been skimmed.
Pigs, says a writer, will not always
eat, and never can be fattened upon raw
potatoes, while), if they are boiled, noxt

to the greatest weight they are capable
of attaining, and to greate perfection
tnan anything else that may be continu
ously used with safety, admitting that
three to four week's feeding upon corn,
oats or barley, is necessary to make the
pork firm and impart flavor. It is tte
experience of very successful pork raisers
that one bushel of corn meal mixed
with four bushels of boiled potatoes
gives a very satisfactory feed for
A Shrewd I'edler.
Sharp dealing is confined to neither
place nor people. In a small German
town an inn-keeper, to get rid of a
book-peddler's importunities, bought
an almanac from him and, putting it in
his pocket, left the inn, his wife just
then ooming in to take his place. The
woman was then persuaded to buy an
almanac, not knowing that her husband
had one already. The husband shortly
returning and disoovoring the trick,
sent his porter to the railway station
after the peddler, with a message that
he wished to see the latter ou important
business. "Oh, yes," said the peddler'
"I know, he wants one of my almanacs,
but I really can't miss my train for that.
Yon can give me a quarter and tako the
almanac to him." The porter paid the
money and carried the third almanac
to the inn-keeper. Imagine the sensa
tions of the victim !

If you are fortunate in possessing
beauty, my dear girl, be thankful for
the gift, but do not over-rate it. The
girl who expects to win her way by her
beauty and to be admired and accepted
simply because she is a lady, has the
wrong idea. She must secure a lovable
character if she wishes to be loved, and
my advice to you all is to lay the foun
dation of a permanent influence. To
win and hold admiration you must cul
tivate the gifts that nature has bestowed
upon you. If you have a talent for
music, develop it ; learn t J sing some
choice songH and to perform upon some
instrument, for many are charmed more
by musio than by handsome featnres.
Parsuo the same course with regard to
painting, drawing and designing, and,
if you have the power to obtain useful
knowledgo in any direction, do it. I
havo heard young meu in speaking of
thoir ludy acquaintances, "Oh I they
look well, bnt they don't know any
thing." There is no necessity for such
a stato of things ; books are cheap and
accessible. If you labor ull day iu
shop or store still at odd intervals yon
can gather up an education and contend
with no greater i:irloulties than did
Clay, Fillmore, Webster, aud others of
onr greatest men. If you go through
life like a flitting butterfly, how will
you bo spoken of by-and-by ? I own it
is nice to eat, drink and be merry, and
be courted and fluttered by all your
friends ; bnt how much better to cul

A romantics story is told of a young
Califoriiii lady reported engaged to
Lientonunt Danenhower, whose boat,
with five men from .the Jeannette, was
reported at Yakutsk, Siberia. She was,
according to the story, bitterly opposed
to his going on the expedition, but
huwng been ordered by his country to
go tc almost certain death, "his honor
wonld not permit him to break his
word, even for the being he worshiped."
She fainted on parting with him, and
has spent most raelaucholy years pining
during his absence, and changing so
within that time, that she now looks
liko a woman of thirty, instead of a
girl of nineteen. Such is the story. It
is somewhat weakened by the fact that
the officers on the Jeannette were not
ordered to go, bnt were all volunteers ;
and by the understood fact that one of
the o dicers went, not against the pro
test of a loving maiden, but to seek in
the icy aretio regions surcease of sor
row caused by his having been refused
by "the boing ho worshiped."

Fat Lyon, the great locksmit'i of his
day, was often sent for by presidents
of banks and other great people, and
he rather liked tho idea of keeping the
great peoplo waiting. So one morning
Pat said he would como as soon as he
had done his breakfast, which happened
to be a great deal later than usual
this particular morning.
Pretty soon came tho second messen

bo Pat started off with messenger nnmber
two. When ht reached the bank he
found tho president, and cashier, and
clerks, ull in a frot and fnme. They
conldn't open the safe to got tho money

spectacles as a general thin?, but when
he was particularly desirous of looking
at anything, or wts particularly excited,
he took his spectacles off his eyes and
fixed them ou his forehead.
He now rubbed his ban Is over his
head a minnte, put his epectuclos over
his forehead, looked at tho lock a Iiulf
minute, worked at it with his tools a
minute or two, and tho lock was fixed
all right and the safe was ready to
Thepresident was delighted, and bo
was the cashior. They shook hands
with Tat, who received thoir saluta
tions with a good. deal of style.
"And now, Mr. Lyon," asked the
president, "what is your charge?"
Put pnt his spectnclos a little higher,
just a little, aud said :
"One hundred dollars."
"What! Ono hundred dollars for
less thau three minutes work, Mr.
Lyon? Why thta is outrageous," said
"It is extortion," said the cashier.
"All right," said Pat Lyon, rubbiDg
his handover his head, and then putting
his spectacles a little higher over his fore
headjust a little. "You won't give
me my money I won't givo you my
work. And I'll leave things as I fonnd

and cireusing w ith it, got it out of genr,
as it was at first, and so left tho eufo in
precisely the samo unopenable condi

But the president and cashier, ap
preciating the situation, seeing what a
fix they were in, begged Pat to let up
on them, and fix the lock so they could
open the safe.
Pat complied with their request, but
till kept his hand on the safe. It was
all read to open, but wasn't yet
"Now, be reasonable in your charges ;
do, Mr . Lj" faid the bank presi
dent. "Two hundred dollars," said Put,
rubbing bis head and raising his spec
tacles once more.
"Why, this is downright robbery,"
cried the president.
"Might as well break into the safe,
as open it at that rate," remarked tho
"All right," said Pat, circassing with
the lock rapidly, before anybody could !
prevent him, and then hanging the safe
door too, leaving it for the third time
By this time the president had his
mad np. He ordered Pat out of his
office, and sent for a rival blacksmith.
He came quick enough, and worked and
fussed long and hard enough, but ho
didn't fix the lock, and be couldn't open
the safe. And it got to be nearly 10
o'clock, and no money available yet.
In despair the third messenger was
dispatched after Put Lyon, who carao
back with a lot of extra dignity.
"Open that at yonr own terms, Mr.
Patrick Lyon," said the President.
Put rubbed his head, put his spec
tacles way up on his forehead, end
opened the safe.
"Now your terms," said the President.
"Three hundred dollars," suid Pat.
The cashier protested, bnt the Presi
dent paid the money. "Why he will
ask for $100 next time," remaiked tho
President to the cashier.
"Excuse me," said Pat with dignity,
"bnt my terms next time will be $500."
"Yon see," said the President to tho
cashier, as he gave him the check.
And Pat rubbed his bead, and took
his chock withont a word, no was
master of the situation, and ho knew it.
