Oh! could there in this world be found
Some little spot of happy gran
Where village pleasures might go round
Without the village tattling?
How doubly blest that plat.* would hg,
Where all might dwell .n liberty
Of gossip's endluis 1,, ailing!
If sneh n spot were really known,
Dame Peace might claim it as her awn,,
And In it she Might fix her throne
Forever and forever;
There like a queen might reign and live,
Where every one would won forgive
The little slights they might receive,
And be offended never.
The misehlef-rhakers that remove
Far Irma our hearts the warmth of love,
And lead us all to disapprove
What gives another pleasure;
They seem to take one's port, but when
They've heard our ease, unkindly then
They soon retail them nil again,
Mixed with poisonous measure.
Ana they have such a cunning way
Of telling ham They say
"Don't mention what I say, I pray;
I would not tell another."
Straight to their neighbor's house they go,
Narrating everything they know,
And break the peace of high and low—
Wire, husband, friend and brother.

Were all minced to one or two
And they were painted rod or hine I
That every one might know them;

And fall Into an angry pet
With things too much below them.

Tll‘ nursery man heels-in his trees or
"layFi them In by the - heels" as soon as
they are dug, provided there is to be any
considerable interval between the taking
up and the packing. It is something
which may be practiced to advantage by
the purchaser of trees whenever they are
received from the nursery, and cannot be
set immediately they arrive. Indeed, 'if
trees arc needed foe planting next Wring,
it is Inuch better to purclu4e them this
autumn, and carefully heel them in for
the winter. There are several good reas
ons fOr purchasing trees in the fall. The
work at the nursery Is much lessihurried,
the stock of varieties has not become
reduced, the risks of transportation are
much less, and in spring the trees will
be on - hand just when they are needed.
The Operation, to be successful, needs
only a little care. A treOch is to 'be
opened, in a well drained place, wide
enough to admit the roots, and deep
enough to set the tree lower than, it stood
before. The trees are placed in an in
clined position, to prevent the tops from
being too much exposed to the winds,
and they are set in close together, the
roots being spread and carefully covered
as the' work 'progresses, allowing no va
cant spaces. The earth then hitnked
up over the roots to the depth of a foot, '
trodddn hard, and smoothed off to shed
rain. Tender varieties of trees may have ,
their tops covered with evergreen boughs.

Out rural friend.; areverylinspituble,and
w:ien we visit them treat us during the
day with the greatest kindness, but they
are often cruel to us at night, and most,
always consign us to a featherbed, in the
smothering depressions of whieb we pass
a sleepless night. That a feather bed is
a fit thing to sleep upon, is an idea rapid
ly disappearing, we are happy to say;
yet in many communities feathers still
prevail, and they are looked upon as silk
dresses are, in some measure an index of
the wealth, or competence of the owner.
It is quite time that all this waschunged,
and comfort and health consulted, rather
than show. We say comfort,—for none
after having slept for a few weeks on a
hard bed, would willingly return to feath
ers. Curled hair makes the very
, best
mattress, but is expensive; the next best
thing is corn husks, a' cheap material,
and accessible to all. The inner husks,
or shucks, as they are called in some
places, allowed to curl up a little, are of
ten used without any preparation. A
softer bed is made by slitting the husks
in strips, half an inch or So in width; a
fork may be used to facilitate Stripping.
The best huskbed we ever saw was made
from the husks of green corn shredded
by drawing through a flax hatehel.—
Husk-beds should be opened about once
in six months, the ks shaken out from
the fine ,
pg.,. be sprinkled,
and allowed to lay the sun fora while.
Treated in this way the husks will be al-
Most as good as new. We give this timely
hint, in order that at husking time, those
who would enjoy the luxury' f a husk
bed, may , take measures to secure the
necessary material.—American Agricul
It is a fault with most stables that they
are built for men rather than for horses.
We wish to point out two common errors
into which not a feW builders are liable
to fall In constructing stables, especially
those upon farms. The first is in having
the doors and upper floor as low as they
generally are. On account of • the low
doors horses instinctively learn to fear
them, anittliey shy, rear or prance, when
ever led towards them. They are also
among the most frequent causes of poll
en). The horse, when passing through
them, is either surprised by something
It beholds outside the building, or check
ed by the voice or gesture of the person
leading him, when up goes the head and
crash comes the poll against the beam of
the doorway. A Ntiolent bruise ofted re
sults therefrom, and a deep-seated ab
scess fol lows. Low hay-floors also produce
the same trouble. The sudden elevation
of the bead is, in the horse, expressive of
very unexpected emotion. - This effect is
noway.' STABLES.
always noticed whenever you enter the
stable rapidly or at an unusual hour. A
sudden noise will also cause the same
upward motion of the head. With low
stables an injury to the horse is almost
invariably sure to follow.
Again, the easiest position in which
the horse can stand s is when the hind
feet are the highest portion of the body,
or when the flooring of the stall slants
in exactly the opposite direction from
what it (toes in most stables. This is the
other error in constructing 'stablea, to
which we alluded. Horses at liberty in
a pasture invariably stand, when at ease,
with their hind feet elevated somewhat,
and it is almost a wonder that builders
of stables have not improved upon this
fact before, and adapted floors to the
wants of the horse. The moisture from
the hot's°, if the floor slanted toward the
forward feet, would help to keep the for
ward feet moist, cool and healthy, where
as they are now genCrally hot, full of
fever, andramire washing with cool soap
suds at" least once a day, in order to be
kept In a healthy condition. This is not
all. Where the floor slants back, the
horse not unfrequently attempts to ease
the heavy strain upon the flexor tendons
of the hind legs by hanging back upon
the halter. The pressure upon the seat
of the poll stop natural circulation, and
in time it developes itself into a deep-seat
ed ut),:eess. We would like [ogee a stable
in which the two errors in building' we
have pointed out did not occur. If the
builder was not satisfied with it, we
sure the occupant would be, and would
repay him by long years of good service
with unstrained limbs and a healthy Sys
How the Lton•hnnt Ended
"Uncle Hal, will you tell us a story—
one about wild beasts?" said a little boy
to his soldier untie. And accordingly
Lncle Hal, who was a very kind, ' .-000 -
I natured man, told his little friends the
following story '
' When I was quartered at the Cape, a
Good many years ago, the great thing
amens: our fellows was to go hunting up
( country. Now hunting in Africa is
a very different sort of thing to hunting
in England, and re lion a very ugly eus-
Writer compared to a fox; but, just so
I much in proportion as the danger is
greater, so also is the excitement, and ev
ery man with any_ pluck at all, was sure
to be a keen lion-hunter. 1 had been in
. India for seine years, and knew pretty
well what lions were up to, but some of
the young hands did not, and used to
talk very big of what they would do
when their turn for leave, and conse
quently hunting, aeon° ; and, moreover,
what fortunes they would make by ele
' pliant,' tusks, which are, you know, vc,Ty
valuable as ivory; rand many a laugh we
old stagers had at the subs as they boast
ed, and killed a doxen or two lions or ele
phants, in imagination. '
Well, my turn fur leave came, not long
before Christmas, and I determined to get
as far up eouutry its I couldrbefore the
end of the year.- Two friends were to go
with me, and tin ensign—One Of thegreut
est boasters of the whole lot.
At first we saw only antelopes of vari
ous kind-, herds of curious looking beasts
called the Utrao, and wild does; lout af
ter we had passed Wuruman, the m
ary station where Mr. Moftlitt lived, we
began to fall in with quaggas, jackals, I
bytenas, and, last, king lion bine-elf, who
made his first visits to our camp at the '
dead hour of night, carried oft' a sheep in
his mouth, and actually jumped over the
poor litHe ensign, who finding the wag
on too close, it td lain down by the camp

given, and the Hottentots all ran, shriek-'

One night, having encamped near a na
tive village, or, as they are called out
there, a I.7rtal, we found the poor people
in the greatest despair. It •L• ed OAK
country all aroundewas infested by lions;
that, one after another men, women, and
children had hem* fallen upon and de
voured, until the poor creatures were text,
frightened to go out of their village, and,
consequen U.% , werein a state of starvat ion.
The sight of our guns seemed to give
them new life, and in a body they. came
praying we would kill all the lions before
we went away. That was impossible, of
course; but we were nut iiirrgloth to have
a few days' shooting, so set to work. The I
first day we went out we did not see one;
the second we only heard one; but the ,
third we were mote fortunate. We had '
sent the natives to beat a low, marshy
valley, posting ourselves at the most fa
vorable spots for seeing. Franks, who
had plucked up hie courage, and talked
loudly of what he Meant to do, was close
beside me. We waited about half an.
hour, when I heard a heavy, stealthy
step crush down the long, crisp, reed I
grass, and had, barely time to get behind
a tree, and sign to Fr: nka to do the same,
when a magnificent lion walked out in
to the open before :us, and, evidenty, in
nocent of our proximity, lay down. I
looked at Franks-- , his cheek wits quite
white, and his ride hand shaking like a
reed. Poor boy ! I thought, he must have
the first shot, and so I signed to him to
take time and fire, lifting my own rifle 1
at the sante time, for I saw that Franks
could do nothing in the killing way.
bang,! went both barrels, the bul
lets, of course, going wide of their mark.
The lion sprung to his legs and shook his
mane, lashing . his sides with his tail till
they boomed again like an empty barrel.
Then'he opened ihis great jaws, and gave
a roar that literally shook the earth. I
had levelled may title, and was on the
very point of tiring, when I caught a
glimpse of Franks elitybiug, a tree with
more sped than grace, and looking, too.
so desptrately frightened, that f could
not help laughing, and so missed aim.
The bullet stmef the lion in the shoul
der only, and made him doubly furious.
He crouched down and sprang, but the
tree Nra.4 between us; I dodged round,
and tired again before hecould face about.
This time the ball went home and he '
rolled over dead.
"You won't, tell what a fright I was In,
captain, will you?" said Franks, as we
stood over the prosirate monarch.
I laugted.
"Not if you are modest. Hallo! look
out !Do you hear them shouting And
sure enough the natives were shouting as '
if they had gone mad.
Scarcely had we loaded our rifles and
stationedourselves,than an immense lion
came trotting up the valley, waving his
tail from side to Ride, and every now
and then stopping to face about
and roar. I gave him thecontents of my
rifle right in front. He only shook him
self, and crouching down, sprang for
ward, right upon poor little Franks.
I heard the youth shriek, and, rushing
forward, saw him below the ferocious
brute. Ills rifle had fallen tem his

stone dead, and I took poor Franks' arm
from his huge jaws, and carried him (for
he bad fainted) to a little pool of water I
remembered passing.
He was frightfully miingled, but I saw
no danger; and after tying up the
wounds to the best of my ability, began
shouting forhelp; and„fortunatclv, some
of the natives coming up, I got him eon
veyed back to camp, and there h a d hi s
wounds more comfortably bound up.
He had a severe illness, and, not liking
to leave him, I gave up the hunting jour
ney, and went back by easy stages to
Cape Town. And so ended my first ex
pedition up country—and my last, for we
were ordered to the Crimea soon after.
Franks had gone home on sick leave,
and did not rejoin us till a few days before
the great engagement on Catheartie Hill.
He came to me directly after he had re
ported himself; and very glad I , was to
see him, although he looked white and
delicate. Next day we were under arms,
and marching side by side for the hill.
There was a pause • then the word
"Charge" rang out, and up we went.
Something like fire ran through my
breast; a million thunders boomed in my
Ms. anal felt myself falling, falling,
-,`-then all was over.
When I came to I was far away
from the battle, and,Franks was bending
over one. I knew I was wounded, and
that he had carried me away, and a sus
picion that he had done so to shirk his
duty canto over me, and showed itself too
plainly in my face, for lie stooped down.
and I could hear his heart beating as be
"I'm no coward now, Hal; but I've

ho saying, he ran cdt.
When I saw him again he was lying
stark and stiff upon that glorious hill,
shattered with bullets, and men were
speaking, reverently a►ld tearfully of what
he had done. And of all the brave fel
lows who fell that day, there was not a
braver, better soldier than poor Franks
as I called him; but I think you cab
guess his real name, some of you, for
when I came home I went and saw his
mother and sisters, and—
"Oh, I know-1 know !" shrieked lit
tle Lucy; "you married his sister. Oh,
you dear old uncle."
"It's just what I would have done,"
remarked the little boy, gravely, who
had asked for the story ; and then, amidst
a chorus of laughing, the party dispersed•
for the night.
