my eyes rolling ubout like billiard-balls !

in a flash eout came old Ben himself. I
had struck the right mink. Ue had a
napkiu under his chin, and carvin' knife
in his band. I smelt the dm tier as he
opened the door.

man, and I defy a weasel to go through a

then I'll come back an' tell you all about

like a good fellow, and have a snack with
me. I am anxious to hear what you have
I pretended to decline, say in' I'd come
back : but I'd thoroughly mured up the
old chap's curiosity,' an' it ended hy hi j
fairly pullin' me into the house, an 1
made a iattlin' dinner of pork and beans.
I managed for some time to dodge the
main p'nt of his inquiry. At last I fin
ished eating, au' tfiere was no further ex
cuse for delay ; besides old Ben was get
'Come, neow,' said he, 'no more preface.

to think the latter got the worst of it. . .

People often abase their instruments, and
then blame the manufacturers and parties
from whom they purchase for selling them
for what they are pleased to term "trashy

the piano against the outside wall of the
room, and bad kept it closed aad no fir

silver table spoon ou the sounding board.

aud have it tuned ouly by a competent
tuner; and never allow it below concert
pitch, (unless the piano is an old one, in
which case it probably would not bear tbe
strain upon it.) It should be tuned, at
the very least, three timet iu tbe lust
year, after that, whenever it requires it.
Dampness is its most dangerous enemy,
canting rhi strings and turning pins to
rust, the cloth used in tho construction of
the keys to swell, whereby the action will
move sluggishly and often stick entirely.
The best pianos, made of the most thor
oughly seasoned wood, are the ones that
are most effected by dampness, the ab
sorption being greater. hen tbe tone
of the piano becomes "ninty," it is caused
by tin- fell on the hammers becoming hard
by constant use, and may be remedied by a
procesa called "picking up," but should!
not be attempted by any but a competent
fierion. Any bard substi nee, uo matter
iow small, dropped on tbe sounding
board, will cause the piano to have t jar
ring sound. The piano should at all timet
be protected by a good rubber cover.
You should place a piece of camphor,
wiapped in soft paper, in one of the inside
corners to protect tbe felt from the depre

Au old man of very acute physiogno
my, answering to the name of Jacob Wil
mot was brought before the police court.
His clothes looked as if they had been
bought in hia youthful prime, for rhey
had suffered more from the rubs of the
world than from tho proprietor himself.
'What business do yoa follow, W'il
mot?" 'Business? None; I'm a traveler,'
'A vagabond, I suppose.'
'You are not far from right ; travelers
and vagabonds are about the tame thing.
The difference it, the latter travel without
money and the former without brains.'
'Where have you traveled V
'All ever this continent.'
'For what purpose V
'What have you observed V
'A little to commend, much to censure,
and very in n eh to laugh at.'
'Umpli 1 What do you commend V
'A handsome woman that will stay at
home, an elegant preacher that will not
write too much, and a fool that baa tense
enough to hold his tongue.'
'What do you censure f'. u
'A man who marries a girl for fine els

WHY JEWESSES ARE BEAUTI
Chateaubrand gives a fanciful but an
agreeable rcasou for the fact that Jewish
women are so much handsomer than the
men of their nation. He says Jewesses
have escaped tbe curse which alighted up
on their fathers, husbands and sons. Not
a Jewess was to be seen among tbe crowd
of priests and rabble who intuited the
Son of God, scourged Him, crowned Him
with thorns, and subjected Him to infa
my and the agony of tho cross. The wo
men of Judea believed in the Savior, aud
assisted and soothed Him under affliction.
A woman of Bethany poured ou his head
precious ointment, which she kept in a
vaae of alabaster. The sinner annointed
his feet with perfumed oil and wiped them
with her Iiair. Christ on his part extend
ed mercy to the Jewesses. He raised
from the dead the son ol the widow of
Nain, and Martha's brother Lazarus. He
cured Simon's mother-in-law, and the wo
man who touched the hem of hia garment,
To tne Samaritan woman he was a spring
of living watt r, and a compassionate judge
to the woman in adultery. The daugh
ters of Jerusalem wept over Him ; the
holy women accompanied him to calvary,
brought him balm and spices ; and weep
ing sought him iu the sepulchre. "Wo
man, why weepest thou ?" Hit first ap
pearance after the resurrection wot to Ma
ry Magdalene. Ho said to her, "Mary."
At the sound of his voice, Mary Magda
lene's eyes were opened, and she answer
ed: "Master. ' The reflection of some
beautiful ray mutt have retted on the
orow of toe jewesaes.
As you enter the broad rate of tbe
cemetery towering heaven ward and seen
from Matt to West, from North er Sooth,
for allies distant, is the monument erect

lustrious patriot, "Horry of tbe West."

His remains are in a sarcophagus, ana
on iu beta ia iattriaod those memorable
words of the mighty dead :
"1 can with unshaken confidence appeal
to the Divine Arbiter for ihe truth of the
declaration that I hare been influenced by
oo impure purpose, no personal motive t
have sought no personal aggrandizement ;
hut in all my public acts I have had a
role and single eye, and a warm, devoted
heart, directed and dedicated to what ia
my beet judgement I believed to be tba
intereata of my country."
In lingering beside the grave of this
distinguished sage and statesman we are
back in contemplation to the halcyon
days of our country's history ; whea the
Senate floor wat graced by men of gigan
tic intellect, and tbe halls of Congress
ec hoed to the words of patriotism aud afo
queooe ; whea fraud, political chicanery
and self aggrandisement were unknown ;
days, alas that we fear aboil dawn upon
ua no more.

country are alike a thing of the past.

Soap and Hog Cholera. J. T. -Busty,
Lancaster, O., writes the Ohio Farmer
that he had known hogs said to have this
disease, dissected, and the stomach, bow
els and livers found to be full of worms
three and four inches long, the ends of
them being pointed and sharp, and of a
hard, rough, wiry appearance. Ia oae
instance the cavity of the gall wat crow
ded full of these worms. Hit Poland pigt
were attacked with cholera. Caught the
pigs, placed on their backs one boy
holding legs and the other the ears and
gave each pig a tablespoonful of toft soap
morning and evening for three days. The
second day he observed in their droppings
long stringy substances, which he found
to be the skins of what he supposed to be
worms, which was proof to him the soap
had the desired effect. He also put toft
soap into the swill fed hit other hogt,
which hat improved their appearance
How to Bold the Fertility of Ike Soft.
Gypsum attracts. It It not only a ma.
nure In itself, but it attracts the manure
from the atmosphere thai comes in contact
with it (which it abundant on windy
days); but it catches and holdt the fertil
ity of the ground that in some soils es
capes. Lime will also do this so will
clay. Clay, dried aad powdered, ia aa
excellent thing to put on a barn-yard, or
to cover a compost beap with, or work
through the hedp ; hence we use gypsum
and lime on our stables and privies. Gyp
sum it best ; it has the most attraction,
besides other properties. A little should
be kept by every farmer for use, even at
a high cost, as the benefit is sometimes
more important than the high price. But
we waste manure. We no. ouly permit
its strength to escape, bat we are glad to
get it out of the way. . The same reck
lessness extends to the land. It is well
our soil bat a good proportion of clay to
hold its strength. We must converse.
The time is not tar distant when we shall
be compelled to do it. Already there are
aymptoma of lack in ear soil ; we do not
raise at heavy crops aa we use to here
and there a field, here and there a farm is
lest productive. It Is not" so much that
we need plaster here in the West to hold
the strength of the toil as to ate it to ab
stract it from the atmosphere, and to save
the ammonia of our barn yards and sta
bles. For this let at always keep a lit
tle on ha ad, Lotus save aad improve
our manure, and thus save our farms.
Coiman's Rural World, t
Lice on Hog. In ans wer to a recent
inquiry for a remedy for lice on hogt, al
low me to say that I have had an experi
ence of twelve years with breed hog.
The pott five yean I have used the fol
lowing, which will clean off the Nee in
two dayt : Put about one gill tf1 fcHi''
semi Oil into an old dhth and wlthenatwt
brush or old woo lea rag tab the oil ap
and down the back of the animal and be
hind the fore leg and on the flank. Be
particular about the last two placet, for R
is where, toe lice deposit their eggs, which,
it not destroyed will hatch out in about
five dayt. If it be a black beg, these
eggs can be plainly seen, being a boat the
size of timothy seed and lying clbso to
the skin fait to the hair ; no one need fear
to uie the oil freely, aa it will not injure
the hog in tho least. Hot water will not
kill these lice, for I have seen them crawl
after the hog had been scalded in a barrel
after being butchered. R. Woodruff, in
