1IY MARK TWAIN.
When I say Hint I never knew my
auslcro father to bo enamored of hut
ono poem in all tlio long century that ho
llvctl.iicr&ons who Unow him will easily
hclleyo me; when I say that I havo
never composed but one poem in all tlio
long third of a century that I have
lived, persons who knew mo will bo
sincerely grateful; and finally, when I
tay tho poem which I composed was not
tho ono which my father was enamored
of, persons who may havo known us
both will not need to havo this truth
shot into them with a mountain how
itzer beforo they can receivo it. My
father and I wero always on tho most
distant terms. I was a boy a sort of
armed neutrality, so to .speak. At it
regular intervals this neutrality was
broKCii, and suffering ensued; but I
will bo candid enough to say that tho
breaking and the suffering wero always
divided up with strict impartiality be
tween us which is to say my father
did tho breaking, and I did tho suffer
ing. As a general thing I was a back
ward, 'caution1, unadventtirous boy; but
onco I jumped oil' a two-story stable;
another tlmo I gave an elephant a plug
of tabacco nnd retired without waiting
foran answer; nnd still another tlmo I
pretended to bo talking in my sleep,
and got oh"n portion of a very wretched
origlnnl conundrum in hearing of my
father. Let us not pry into tho result,
it was of no consequence to nny ono but
But tho poem I havo referred to as
attracting my father's attention and
achieving his favor was "Hiawatha."
Somo man who courted a sudden and
awful death presented him with an ear
ly copy, and I nover lost faith in my
own senses until I saw him sit down
and go to reading It in cold blood saw
him open tho book.and heard him read
theso following lines, with thosaino in
HccUonlCsS judicial frigidity with
which ho always read his charge to tho
jury, or administered an oath to n wit
Tuko your bow, O Hl.iwalha,
T.iko your arrows, Jasper-headed,
Tuko your war-club, Pusgawab-un,
And our mittens, Mlujeknhwau,
Aud your bitch eanoo for sailing,
And tho oil of Mlshc-Nnmn."
Presently my father took out of hU
breast pocket an imposing "Warranty
Deed," and fixed his eyes upon it and
dropped into meditation. I knew what
it was. A Texan lady and gentleman
had given my half brothor, Orln John-
son, a handsome, property in a town in
tlio North, in gratitudo to him for hav
ing saved their lives by an act of bril
By and by my father looked toward
mo and blghed. Then ho said :
"If I had bitch a son us this poet, hero
wero a suhject worthier than tho tradi
tions of theso Indians."
"If you pleaso, sir, where'.'"
"In this doed."
"In tho deed?"
"Ycs-in this very deed," said my
father, throwing It on tho tablo. "Thoro
is moro poetry, moro romanco. moro
sublimity, moro splendid imagery hid-
licit away in mat homely document
than could bo found in nlltho traditions
of nil tho savages that llvo."
"Indeed, sir? Could I could I get it
out, sir? Could I composo tho poonir
Presently my father's faeo softened
somewhat, nnd ho said i
"ao and try. Hut mint, curb folly.
No poetry nt tho oxponso of truth. Keep
strictly to tho facts."
I said I would, und bowed myself out
und went up stairs.
"Hiawatha" kept dreaming tn my
head and so did my fathor'u remarks
about tho sublimity and ronmnco hid
den in my subject, nud also his injunc
tion to bownro of wasteful and oxubor-
ant fancy. I noticed, Just hero, that I
had heedlessly brought tho deed nwny

It is a very pleasant occupation for
children, and sometimes for larger
children to make scrap books; and this
is tho way to do it :
If you can sparo tlio money it is well
to buy a regularly mado book of firm
whito paper, so bound as to leavo room
for tho filling of tho leaves. Othcrwlso
an old account book does very well, if
tlio binding bo good, nud if the leaves
bo cut out, leaving about an inch, and
cutting two out of every three. Wo al
ways keep our books covered, and then
they are fresh when they aro finished,
which is n work of tlmo.
Most of 113 find in our reading, tilings
which wo want to save pootryorproso
facts or principles, according to our
taste; and tho usual way is to cut them
out, carry them In a pocket book till
they aro worn out, or leave them In
somo box or drawer until they becoino
rubbish, and then forget them.
Tho best way Is to keep 11 box for such
scraps, and when you find anything you
Of courso thero will bo n tremend
ous gleaning when you como to uso

somo rainy day or evening, wo get our
A nice llttlo painter's brush, rather
largerthann big thumb; nsmall,smooth
board, ouo or two' inches of old cotton
or linen, and n bowl of common paste,
mado merely by boiling flour ami wa
ter. Then pare each scrap carefully (or it
is well to hayo done that beforehand);
lay it down upon tho board, and brush
over tho back nicely Vitli tho pasto.
Then lay It smoothly upon tho page,
and rub it down quietly and smoothly
with your cloth; nnd so on, tho noxt
aud tho noxt.
On tho right-hand pago it is well to
rulo a lino at tho left of tho pago nnd
begin thero, nnd not let tho Joinings of
tho scraps como opposlto each othor on
tho two sides of tho leaf. A llttlo prac
tleo will ennblo ono to do this qulto ea
sily nud with very iittlo muss.
Keep short pieces for filling up tho
odd places In tho pages.
Tho book will partly dry whllo you

not bo mado very wet, nnd whllo it is
still damp.piit it under a heavy weight
nnd leavo it over night,
Ono of tho best nud most equal

impossible to do so.
I. Tho powder is not Ignited at tho
rear end of tho cartridge, but next to
the ball, wiici'o tlio igniting matter is
placed in a kind of socket of papier

power to tlio ball, tho powder burning
from tho front to tho rear.
o. Tho cartridge is mado up ball lu

called long lead (lung bid.)

when it becomes vcry;inuch heated, and

extra supply of about six needles.
It is not so much tho superiority of
the needle gun over other breech load
ers which liassecured and in all proba
bilities will in tho present strtiirglo se
cure success to the Prussian army, as it
is tho thorough education of each indi

Tho ncedlo gun was first used in
Prussia In ISIS and in 1810, in Baden
nnd Schleswig, and not having been
deemed elective without an entire

or sharp-shooters can bo supplied with
cartridges from any cavalry, pistol or

llYDitopiioiiiA A simple remedy.
Tho Norristown Jntlepenilcnl says: In
ISl'Jono Valentino Kettering, of Dau
phin county, communicated to thoSeu-
ato of Pennsylvania 11 sure remedy for
tho blto of any mail animal. Ho said
that his ancestors had used It In Germa
ny iTiO years ago, nnd that he always
found it to answer tho purpose, during
a residence of fifty years in tho United
States. Ho only publishes it from a
motlvo of humanity. This remedy
consists in tho weed called chlckwccd.
It is a summer plant, known to tho
Germans and Swiss by tho names of
Gauchnell Rother Mayor, or Rother
Iluehnderdarm. In England it is called
Red Pimpernel, and its botanical namo
is Angelica Phonlcea. It must bo gath
ered in Juno, when in full bloom, dried
in thosando and then pulverized. Tho
doso of this for a grown person is n
small teaspoonful.or iuweightadraclim
and a scruplo at once, in beer or water.
For children tho doso Is tho same, yet
It must bo administered at tlirco differ
ent times. In applying It must bo used
green, cut into pieces, and mixed with
bran or other feed, For hogs tho pul
verized weed is mado Into iittlo balls
by mixing it with Hour nnd wntor. It
can also bo put on bread and butter, or
in honey, molas.?cs, &c. Tho Rov. Dr.

Out on tho Pacific Railroad, tlio other

at the rate of forty miles an hour. Ho
thought it was an imported breed of
buffalo, und ho was anxious to secure it
so ns to tuko tlio prize at tho annual cx
lilbition of tho Kickapoo Agricultural
Society. So ho fastened ouo end of his
lasso to his waist-belt, nnd when tho
euglno got near enough ho throw tho
liooso nicely over tho smoke-stack. Per
haps it is not necessary, but wo may 113
well relate that tho locomotive did not

Selah. The translators of the Biblo
have left tho word Sclah, which occurs
so often in tho Psalms, as they found it,
and of courso tho English reader often
asks I1I3 minister orsomo learned friend
what it means. And tho minister or
learned friend lias most often been
obliged to confess ignorance, becauso it
is a matter in regard to which tlio most
learned havo by no means been or ono
mlud. Tho Targums, and most or tho
Jewish commentators, give to tlio word
tho meaning or eternally; forever.
Kiniehi regards It a sign to elevate the
voice. Tho authors or tlio Septuagint
translation appear to havo regarded it
ns a musical or rhythmical note. Her
der regards it as indicating a chango of

equivalent perhaps, to tho word repeat.
Aceiiallng to Luther and others, it
means silence ! Opsonins explains it to

seventy-four passages in which tho word
occurs, recognizes in every caso "an
actual appeal or summons to Jehovah."

pily Illustrated by nn nnecdoto that
happened in Edinburgh somo few years

street observed a largo crowd gathered
around two dogs. Tho larger one,
powerful mastiff, had tho smaller ono
in his relentless grip. Every ell'ort had
been made to loosen his hold, sucli as
slitting ids ears, and biting and pinch
ing his tail, but in vain. At length a
quiet, K'holarly looking gentleman
camo up, nnd making ids way through
tho circle, nsked to bo allowed to separ
ate tho combatants. Assent was given
amid laughter and cheers, when draw
ing n siiutT box from his pocket, ho up
plied a pinch or tlio titillating powder
to tho mastiff's nose. Tho efi'ect was so
great on tho brutoM olfactory senses
that ho not only released his hold, but
mndo oft' ns fast as his legs could carry
him. Tho scholar was greeted with
cheers, but ho replied only, "Gentle
men, I havo but given you proof that
knowledgo Is power."
The colored peoplo down in Delawaro
havo gotten into such a habit or steal
ing mils that tho farmers havo begun
to bring their fences in nt nights. It is
n good deal of trouble, they say, but It
is not any harder than to undertako to

tho fenced might bo protected very nico
ly if every rail on each farm had a
watch-dog chained to it ; or ir n lire
proof safo largo enough to contain tho

Greeley recommends laying bank-notes
