'Iho HIstorj of the Cont.
A sapient wight did onco discover
A staff, from which be mado a cover,
And, dipping it in inky black,
he wore it grandly on hie back ;
And many folks enraptured gazed,
And many stood in awe amazed.
At length bo died, and as a share,
He left tbe thing unto bin heir.
The heir deemed sacred tho kind Kilt,
And on Lie back tbe thing did lift ;
But eoon he found it bad uo shape,
And, rem ing it, be made a cape ,
Then walked abroad into the street
To hear the world acclaim it neat.
At length he died, and as a share.
He kit tbe thing unto bis heir.
The lucky bcir, it eager taking.
Thought be saw fault about tho making;
He shook and twisted it about,
And lastly turned it inside out ;
Upon it clave big knobs of brass -Then
proudly in it he did pas.
At length he died, and as a share.
He lelt tbe thing unto his heir.
The willing heir received the piUo
With haughty brow and sparkling eyes ;
But soon perceived there was a failing,
And o'er the mishap adly nailing,
To keep the thing from looking stale.
Into ilH rear ho clipped a tail !
At length be died, and as a share.
He left the thing uuto bia beir.
The Ihing no longer now was new,
'And one could almost look it through'1,
Yet still tbe bcir, it fondly taking,
Itesolved to change its ancient making ;
And dangling on it many laces,
lie marched about enrobed in graces,
At length ho du d, and as a share,
Ho loll tho thing uuto his heir.
This heir is known to you as Fashion
And overyb idy kuows bis passion ,
He changed tbe thing with anjrry mien.
Tore off the tawdry knobs and sheen,
And darkly bound it all around,
Tbn with it sailed away, profound.
Last yeir he died, und an a share,
He left tho thing to you, bis be:r.
MRS. MINTONS PRESENT.
"One moment, Charles -I bavo for
gotten something!" cried pretty Mrs.
Minton, darting from tbo side) of Lcr
young hatband, as he stood, in tbe hall,
valise in Land, about to start fcr a
week's: travel.
Upon reaching her rcom, f.bc seized
a bottle from a drawer in a bureau, ami
then, as her face lit with a siuilo at u
happy thought, (he Grated herself and
wrote a few lines upon n sheet of paper,
which she placed in tho bottlo ub ve
tbo powder it contained. Rocorkiug it,
she again rut-bed to her husband, and
said,
"It is time yon i aid attention to tin'
cold of yours. It is becoming chronic
catarrh. This may be a patent medi
cine, but everybody recommends it, and
I bouoht it for yon yesterday. Now
you will use it, won't you? The dhec
tions are w'tbin."
"Certainly, love certainly. Thunks!
Good bj P
Givirg his wife a hurried but ardent
embrancc, Mr. Minton put tbe bottle
in his overcoat pecket and departed.
"Tbe silly darliogl" he smilingly
muimureJ, as lie turned the corner of
tbe street. "If I should cut myself
shaving, she'd wish to tend for a sur
geon; and now I'm Ionded with a bottle
because I sneezed at breakfast. I must
rid myself of the incumbrance at once."
As be thus communed with himtelf,
advanoing rapidly, he struck his valise
against tbe legs of a gentleman before
him, and raising his head (o apologize,
saw an aged neighbor.
"Ah, Mr. Jobfon, beg pardon! Am
in a harry i catch the train."
"Ugh, ugh! It's ugh! no conse
quence "
"That's a bal cough of yours. I
think I've something that will help
yon. nighty recommended. Take it '
The old gentleman mechanically ex
tended his hand, and as ho received the
bottle, Mr. Minton bowed and passed
on. Tbe gift was scrutinized with a
doubtful sneer.
"Ugh! ami ba! So Minton has gone
into tbe qnack-medicine business, has
he? I'm too old a bird to be caught
with chaff. He sha'nt poison me with
drags. I'll stop it right here. Stop!
No ngh! nm! ba! I'll give it to my
housekeeper; she believes in such
Bluff."
Mr. Jobfon pocketed tho bottlo, and
slowly tht ffl-d to waid his home. His
housekeeper was profuse in her thanks
as she was presented with the "perfect
cure,"
"I'm sure I'm much oblecgcd to ye,
sor! It's the very thing for mo sister's
cough. His it made yer own bettber,
soi?
"I experience relief from it," said
Mr. Job son, with a cynical smile, "at
this moment."
"I'm expeotin' me sister this very
mornin'. We are both so much 'bleeged
to ye! '
Bat the housekeeper's sitter proved,
oa arrival, to have well nigh recovered
from ber trouble, and was averse to
trying a new remedy. , Being, however,
a provident person, she accepted the
gift, saying that it would ba a good
thing to have in tbe house.
It was not destined to remain long
tbrre. Tbe husband's not.co was at
tracted to it as be ate his lunch, the
mantelpiece upon which it had been
placed bring opposite his seat at tbe
table.
"More purchased'' he growled.
"What have you got there? Wl at's the
use of throwing money away like that?
Who's sick now?
"You're altogether too quick to find
fault. It was given to me," responded
the wife.
"What is it,, anyway? L3t's see it."
"A mere euro for catarrh."
The uiuu read the label and then put
it into his pocket, laying,
"I'll take it to the Bhop. It hasn't
cost us anything, autt I'll give it to the
hots. It may do us tome good in that
way."
'Unless your're sure ho wants it, you
hid bitter leave it where it in."
"I know what I'm ubout," replieil the
muu, as he arose to put on his coat.
,
"Mr. Dennis, I've heard you Fay
there was no cure for catarrh. Now
h"i'e'aa remedy that's wanaated perfect.
If you'll try it I wish you'd take it
from mh."
"Thanki-! It's the vtry medicine I'm
using now. Got bottles of it. Keep
it, or give it to some one who has need
of it. Thanks, all the same."
"I'll fake it!" ciiid a fellow. work
man, with j icoso agerne?s.
To him the bottle was handed.
"And now you've sot it, what ore you
going to do with it?" asked she giver.
"Yon haven't got any catarrh "
"No; but I've Rot children."
"Pretty Dearly as bad, I suppose "
"Does he want to get rid of 'eui?
asked a third.
Into tho midst of the jesting parly
now came a small boy, carrying a tin
pail.
"Sorry I'm so lata, fa'har," ho said to
the possessor of the bottlo.
'All right, Jimmy; ta'e this home
the men here arc afraid of it."
Tun boy took tho medic no gin jerly
to his mother, with hi3 father's words.
That goad wotuan thought, if thoro was
any joko in tho niittor, il was a joke
upon her, and soVta.? tho rno.lieino,
fl ing it out of the window wilh au
anery frown.
The bo'.tlis fell upon soft ground, and
was iiLbroken. As it shone in tho sun
it attracted the attention of a little girl
passing down tho street, who diroccd
lit r grown sister's eyes to it, and was
thereupon re.inostod to pick it up.
Tho yourg lady recopnized it as a
well-ad vertised compound, and deemed
it worthy of being deposited in the
reticule she carried. As she laughingly
exhibited the ptizo upon her return
homo, a favorite servant begged for it.
She knew a person who suffered greatly
from the complaint it would enre, she
said, and the medicine was given
to hor.
Tho person for whom she intended it
was a good-looking coachman, who paid
her considerable attention. He was, in
fact, expected at the garJen-gato that
vo.y afternoon.
Ha came and was given the bottle.
Ho received it with au expression of
tho iuot grateful affection : but,
although eflhuted with a slight cold,
he did not feel impelled to use it.
Indeed, tho falsehearted man thought,
as he place i it in bis breast pocket,
that it would make a fine present for
a handsomo young cook of his ac
quaintance, whom he purposed next
to visit.
Tbe cook was none other than the one
employed by the lady first introduced
to the reader of this story.
Upon tho following morning, as Mrs.
Minton entered her kitchen, she saw
tbe bott!e upon the dresf er.'and sur
prisetlly took it up, for she recognized a
peculiarity on it.
"now came this here, Susan?" she
asked.
" That's mine, mum."
Bat, as the cook spoke, ber mistress
bad pulled the cork from the bottle, and
saw tbe slip of paper he bad the pre
vious morning inserted.
" Susan, I gave this to my husband.
How did you come by it ?"
"It was Mr. Thompson's coaohman
left it here, mum. If it's yours, you are
welcome to it "
" It certainly is mine, Saan. I wrote
thia paper myself."
"Mr. Minton must have dropped it, I
suppose, mum."
" That's it, of course."
But as the wife re read the words she
ha I penned, and meditated in tbe
privacy of her own room, she coased to
believe her gift had merely been lost.
How could it have been dropped from
the pocket in which it had been
securely packed ? And it had boon her
parting gift I
Bhe had dwelt with delight in her
mut-ings upon her husband's surprised
smile as his eye fell upon her written
directions. Bhe deemed her expres
sions of affection therein as prettily
and wittily conceived. For four days
more sic wonld havd to await his
return. Mrs. Minton shut the bottle
up in a drawer with a sigh.
Tbe anxiously-awaited knock was at
last heard, bnt it was accompanied by a
sound which made the wife think nt
once of her gift, and very shortly after
her mutual embrace ask her husband if
he bad experienced no benefit from the
medicine which she had given him.
At such a moment what could tbe poor
man say ?
"It's all gone, but, as yon see "
he replieel, and coughed.
"I do not see that it is all gone,
cither cough or euro," fhe returned,
rising and giving him an indignant
glance, and au instant thereafter held
the bottle before his astonished gaze.
Mr. Minton foil back in his chair with
a confused laugh.
" Ah, I bee ! Jobson has been
hero."
" So you gave it to him, did you ? "
"I thought ho hud greater need
than I."
" Oi this ? " asked the wife, uneorkinp
the bottle, and banding him tGe jlip tf
paper.
' This i meant for your bead.
But it Hhoiild touch your heart;
A wife's love in in it.
Though, you far Irom her stray.
If you take this each day.
No other can iu it."
"Am I to conclude that I havo lost
you?" faid Mr. Minton, a.' bo finished
reading the verse, "anil am I to suppose
tta- old Jobson has gained you?"
" Mr. Jubson has not bcon here."
"Then Low comes it you have that
bottle?"
"I found it upon the kitchen
dresser."
But neither Mr. or Mrs. Minton will
ever exactly know how tho " euro "
returned to them, unlets they read
these lines.
lis sinpnlar rcapperranco in their
household hs had, however, the good
result of making Mr. Minton confine
himself to the strict truth when talking
to his wife. She has only to fay " bot
tle "to curb iu him tho elichteet ten
dency to exaggeration.
A ltomauee of the Camera.
An interesting tale, with a vario'y of
tho most poiutoil mornli", is told of a
Brooklyn belle and her faithful ad
mirer. List year the young lulyia
question aud her mother were, among
the bnurder.i at one oi tho large hotels
at Anbury park, aud among the regular
"Siitnrday-iiighter.i" was a friend of tho
family und esposially of its younger
female member about whose punctual
habits and rapt devotion no doubt was
pormittod to exist. Novcr a Sunduy
passed that was not spent in the young
lady's company and a pair of uncomfort
ably tight patent-leather boots upon
the sloping sands of the bene J ; whilo
as the son retired behind the western
hills the young people would sit be
neath tho scrawny branches of a dys
peptic seaside) cedar to watch tho play
of tho rippling waves or tho sails of the
seaward-goiag ships. Oa such occa
sions, too, it may be imagined, words of
love wore whispered to tho accompani
ment of tho mosquito's tnuMcd hum.
Thus the summer parsed away, till
the season closod, and the young lady
returneil to her residence on "tho Hill."
where her admirer could enjvy tho
rapturous charms of hor society much
more frequently and at a much smaller
expense Of this advantage he did not
fail to avail himself, and all went mer
rily until recently the young man was
informed that a photogiapher at Phila
delphia possessed, and, indeed, had put
on exhibition, an interesting photograph
of himself (tho Y. M.) and the lady,
sitting on the sad sea sands, backed by
a halo of Japanese umbrella. This in
formation being also conveyed to the
young lady, she was greatly concerned,
as she, too, r.al a vivid remembrance of
the photographer's green van.
ActiDg as her guardian or her brother
would have done under the circum
stances, the young man induced the
Fhiladelphian artist through the use
of a good deal of "laughter" to destroy
the. negative and send him tbe pictures.
With the precious pictures in his pos
session be haHtened to tbe young lady's
residence, and on being ushered into
her presence, announcod his success by
waving Iho package aloft and crying,
"Eurela !" or words to that effect.
After congratulations had been ex
changed between them, tho gas was
turned up and tbe package was opened,
the young lady being anxious to see
that the photographer had kept faith
with them. Tho young man took ont
tne pictures
There was a hoarse and utterly irrele
vant remark, a shrill scream, the crnsh
of crumpling tin and tho slam of a vest
bule door.
It was the young lady's picture, but
the arm laid trustfully abont ber canvas
belt was not his arm,
Tbe picture bal been taken on a
week day.
It has been thought that Ni ah sailed
over Amer'ca when ho started on that
forty days go-as you-ploaie cruise, for
it is recorded of him that ho looked nut
of tho Aikansaw laud. Tho report
lucks confirmation, and Noah not being
here to publish a card, we must accept
the statement with a grain of allow ance.
IlOKoLS AM) WOLVES.
(rnvrnl Abo lliifurd Itmrrllip the llilllo
lie Wlmctned ou (he l'lnlno Fonv nun
Ana.
In the year 1842 1 was a lieutenant of
dragoons, and accompanied Captain
Nathan Boone in a campaigu over the
Wchtern prairies in scotch of the Great
Suit Lake of tbe West; A pquailron of
dragoons was tho strength of tbe com
mand. The officers were Boone, com
manding; Lieutenants Johnson, Chil
tou, Andersen, and myself. We were
caruncel on the head-waters of the Big
lied, fork of the Arkansas river about the
20'h of Jane, when all uu'ure seemed
rij .ieing over the grand and beautiful
scenery which is to 1 13 witnessed in no
other part of the world but on the great,
plains of the West. During tbe night
wo coul 1 hear tho distant neighing and
snorting of horses a'nl the burking and
howling of wolves. Oar horses were
breaking loofo from their lariats
frequently eluriug the night.
No one in camp could design the cause
of tho trouble save Captain Buone, who
said there mutt be a batileof the wolves
and hopes )agiig, und ordered the
guards to bo doubled to prcvout a stain
pi de of our own horses. At daylight
the command was mounted and Boone
said Ye would have on fippori unity to
rnpturo a horse or two. So Auderson,
ChMton. and myself s"lected three squads
of the h?nt mounted dtugonns iu the
command. We moved down tho creek
iu tho direction oi the sound of the
neighing and bariiiug, aud all were ou
tiptoe to witness the buttle. Going
about a ruilo under cover of the banks
of the little creek, tbe noiso growing
more distinct every moment until we
got opposite tho Sold of battle, "which
was upon tho levil prairio, about three
bundreel yards from the blutr banks,
hero wo halted and tbe threo officers
da-mounted and went upon the bank to
reconnoitre. We saw the battle tagiug;
the herd of horses was about 150 strong,
and tho most prominent one among
tlieoi was the "great white horse of the
plains," which mauy of you havo doubt-lei-B
o'ten read of, Uo seems to be the
commander, and hud formed tho mures
in a circle with their heels to tho enemy,
or cut ward. The diameter of this circle
vtu.s about cue hundred yards with all
tho foalsaud younget colts in the centre;
all the stallions, with tho "white horse"
n command, cn tho outside and sur
rounding the circle of marcs, who were
lighting the wolves. The wolves would
retreat rapidly from us over the beauti
ful prairie, and we gave chase with all
the ppeed wo could. "The white horte'
iu thia retreat commanded the rear
guard.
Before the retreat commenced I no
ticed u squad of stallions approach the
circle of mares; they pawed the earth,
neighed and snorted fiercely nnd started
off, leading the retreat. The mares
opened tho ciicle, ond tho colts went
out following a squad of marcs in their
rear, aud the "white horse" still in the
rear. I was mounted on a thorougbred
horse given me by my father. He was
sired by Sidi Ilamet. I gave Old the
npur uod moved directly at the white
king, with pistol in hand, thinking I
might crease him if I could ever get by
his side. In this chase Anderson's
squad and mine kept well together.
But Chilton's men, bing mounted on
iufeiior horses, suoh as Noah's ponies)
were left far in the rear.
As we approuched the herd tbe "white
horfo" wonld go slow and let us come
up to within 20 yards of him, but could
go away from us at his ease. He wonld
keep between us and somo of the old
mares aud colts until we would! drive
him forward by approaelling too close.
When it became evident that some of
these mares and colts wonld fall into
our bands the "whito hoise," evidently
with much excitement, would abandon
them to their fate1. We continued this
chaso some eix or seven miles, when all
of our hors(s, saco my horse Ciei, were
pretty well blown. I made several
ft reed dashes at tho whitn horse, but
could not reach him. Ciil was too
heavily handicapped, although my
avoirdupois was not near so great as it
is to-day, when the "white horse" was
only carrying a foitber,
Ou this cl ae we captured several old
mares and colts, ull of which, being too
closely allied to Noah's ponies, not. hav
ing had the advautaqa of the race-track
aud breeding under the direction of
man, we set thorn at liberty on tbe
plains to rejoin their herd. On this
chase Anderson attempted to crease a
young stalliou that be got along side o',
bnt sent a ball through Lis brain and
killed him. Creasing is send ing a ball
through the upper muscle of the neck,
which stilus tho horse and ho falls and
is helpless for a few minutes, and can
be secured by a lariat while in this eon
tion. Oa our return from the clinse to the
crimp, where wo funnd Boone and John
son roosting bnffdo hump and jerkins
beef, we passed tho battle-ground where
were many evidences of the battle, quite
annraberof dead wolves andhoraesand
j sonio carcasses of hors:s on the outer
; edge of the battle-field that had fallen
iu some of the charges, a id tho wolves
had ctevourcel their carcasses. When
wo reached camp with our okl mares
and colts Boone laighed heartily, and
faid: "Why, Mfdoc, (which was my
nickname among tho t fli ;ers,) I thought
you were going to cantnrothe "white
horse," mounted on your thorough bred
from tbe Blue-grass region?'' My re
ply was that Cid was too heavily handi
caped, while the "white horse" was
without weight, oarryingonly a feather.
We were all tired after this chase. We
enjoyed hugely the roasted buflalo
hump, ronsted before tho open fire, and
remained in camp over night.
Such, my fri-uids, is a hastily pro
pared description of tho battle of the
"horses und wolves," in which wo
plainly see tho reasoning powers of this
great "white ho'se of tho pluius" fullv
developed. We also plainly see his
military idea brought fully into play.
In his assmlts upon his enemy he first
organizes his assaulting purties, and iu
his retreat from Lis more formidable
opponent, the dragoons, ho covers the
retreat of his army. This is certainly tho
strongest of ev'ulence th.it h"i possesses
reasoning powers, and is, therefore, a
a lit associate and companion of mnn.
rnglish Vegetables.
The only ood vegetables grown in
Enlaud an very yonug thubiib, sea
ka!o, asparagus and celery, which are
bit tho blanched sprouting shoots of
perennial plants. These mostly come
in spring-time, and aH they are nono the
worse, or even all the batter, for a httlo
wiiolesome s aking, they munage to
survive our climate well enough in tho
long run. But other vegetable uro
more or less fruity in their nature ; and
really to tuste these ouo must go to
America or Italy for choice the fitst.
Of thorough-going fruity vegetables
such as iho tomato England kuows
nothing, as there is uot sun enough to
ripeu them properly. Thefy at wars have
a half-green taste, and uro wholly l ick
ing in the truo rich tomato flavor.
Iudeed, the tiuntnl American specime ns,
though Listing ot the solder, of course,
are bitter savored after all than the
poor starved, sunless EoglKh thiugs.
As to purple egg-fiuit and green chow
chowo, Euglauil knows thorn not at all :
while the profusion of rich, red llot-ln d
watermelons and primrose skinned
squashes und golden pumpkins in a
Massachusetts market would astonish
Covent Garden. Then again there are
tho winter cherries, the sweet poUtoe,
and, b-st of all earthly vegetables,
green Indian corn, eaten off tho cob
with fresh butter, and likest to nectar
of ull eurthly delicacies. As for pulse
generally. English beans are all stringy;
they have neither the variety tor the
tenderness of the American lu.iu. The
peas have some gooel points for Eug
lish peas ; but they are not half so large,
or luscious, or melting, as American
peas. They take too loug growing, uud
have got old and hard before they uro
big enonglrto pick. Lo fy vegetable's
do a little better ; plenty of greein let
tuco is growu. Bnt endive does not
flourish ; it is a scrubby-looking p!aut
in England , though its inferiority is
mado up for in ere3ses aud tho lesser
salad siti lis. Boots, too, ure good;
who will deny tho British furmer the
glory of his turnips, his be'ets and his
mangold-wmzel? Cncnnibers em bo
grown under gla-ts ; bnt what a misera
ble fdiluro is tho vegeta'do-marrow!
Fruits, too. English hot --homo grapes
are tho bdst in the world; but for
strawberries, raspberries, currants,
gooseberries, plums and cherries, one
must go to America
Educated Men.
In the gr at city of New York, und
other cities, men of fine education find
it. bitterly hard to keep themselves in
bread and butter. While a skilled
workman can always command good
wages, those who are "willing to do
anything" which means that they
knuw how to do ?ittlo r.r nothing havo
no chance s' ull ; there are a huuilred
applicant? for every vacancy. "No small
number of thu searchers for places," says
a reporter who has x iiuiued U:e si.bjt'.-t,
are native Amerie'ans. With neither
trade nor profession, they are forced t
take whatever offers ond nothing of
fers. Many of thim ure educated men,
who can eorjniate a Greek verb without
d flknlty. Bat Greek verbs, however
ornamental, are poor stocks in trade
A thorough classical education, however
desjrable it ray be, is of little uso in
the employment matket unless bucked
by some useful practical knowledge.
College graduatesare standing ou every
corner looking for work. If any person
should desire to ride up Broadway in a
coach drawn by a score of accomplished
collegians, he would have no trouble in
omploying them, even if h offend
them re more than their board. A
man who "had pawned his ciothes to
pay for his advertisement," hi! vert ices
that ho wants work of any kiml where
he can earn his bread. What a sad
story the pathetic appeal tells of that
hope deferred which niaketh the heart !
