Ills argument to prove that Pennsylva

bearing whatever on tho question, for

signed to represent union and equality,
and any reference to tlio superlorcondl

Another mistake of tho writer is In
supposing tho naiiio "Keystone'' to bo
a Federal symbol. Such is not tlio case.
Pennsylvania claims for herself tho ti
tle of "Keystone" precisely as Mai-sib
cliusotts claims to bo called thu "Day

fastened Itself upon thu minds of Pent!

Thero are many incidents in our history
well calculated todovclopo this idea. At

known facts undoubtedly present them,
selves to tho minds of many, and tho
title of "Keystone" gradually worked

How to Spell. Often In writing, a
simple word Is required, of tho ortho;
raphy of which tho writer is not sure.
Tho dictionary may bo referred to but
is not always convenient. An easy
mode is to write tho word on a bit ol
waste paper, in the two or threo ways
of which you aro In doubt. Nine times
in ten, tho mcdo which looks right is
right. Spelling particularly Kngllsh
spelling, is so completely n work of thu
eye, that tlio eyo alone should bo trus-
ted. There is no reason why "receive"
"nd "believe" should bo spelt different-
ly, yet sounded alike, in their second
syllables. et write them "rcdevo"
and "beleive," nnd tho eyo shows you
the mistake at once. Thu best way for
young people, and indeed peoplool any
age, lo learn to spell, is to practico writ-
lug. Cobbett, tho famous English rad
ical, taught his children grammar, by
requiring that they should copy their
lessons two or three times. Theso les
sons ho himself gavo them in the form
of letters ; and his French and Kngllsh
grammars arc two of the most amusing
books in tho Kuglish language. Ol

The Snow Bir.n. As each return
ing winter comes to us clad in its gar
ments of white ns often and as faithful
aro tho visits of tho littlo snow bird, ,
those feathered companions of winter's
chill and dreary days. Tho snow bird
is remarked among ornithologists for
tho obscurity which bangs around its
history. On tho first approach of win
ter it suddenly makes Its appearance,
apparently driven by tho Inclemency
of tho whether to court tho society of
man. Whenco it comes no man can
tell and whither It goes (for Its exit is
ns sudden as its cntraneo) no ono has
been ablo to discover; It Is supposed
by somo to bo another bird, only that
its plumage, by somo mysterious and
irresistablo power, has been suddenly
changed. Thero Is a feeling of melan
cholly passing over tlio mind when tho.
bleak and merry landseapo, deserlo I
by all tho other tenants of tho air, Is
only enlivened by tho prescnco of tho
mournful snow bird. Yet In tho bitter
est weather ho is always gay and lively,
and tho gloominess of tho scenery
around him seems to havo no sadden
ing effect upon his cheerful heart.
