Three ihcr n-osters were in 8tate
Ouo duy hchind the hen-hnuse gHlc;
Like aavage chieftiiins grimly drear,
Appeared each hen-pwked chanliclur,
V lio wanted, as he v-intl? sat,

W hj wolullf FUpprrssod and low:
"Why Irit-mlv," said lie, with trembling crest,
".tore 1 speuk, perhnpH, 'twere best
To heed an aduge world re u owned,
And ace il any liens are round."
l'i jumped a hdiiiaia. "Say ! the fate,"
( iiiil he with joy, "have plaoed our DiaUa
Far out upon the garden will,
It' Vond our sight, licyond our call,
V here, undiMiirlicd, hy friend or loo.
They loudly 'cluck,' and think they crow."
His mind relieved, the elder siigo
riiid, "Ilrothere, we're lM-hind liie age;
Iut bins progreos. ' ("Ah, woe is we!"
In tones sepulchral groaned the three.)
They fight like warrior cocks of old,
And oh yc martyrs! how th'-y scold.
'Were riek of idleness and pUy j
We're growing sicker every Uy.
Ittit I have hit upon a plan,
("Hurrah!" begun the leathered cluu,)
If hens crow, aiid irawl anti upat,
We'll hatrb the ehickens ! now is that V
A wondrous plan! Each cock with test
Retook himself unto a neit.
And waited in maternal mood
The exit of a feithered brood ;
Rut inditing from their restless fret
lUj did not fanry eggi for a scat.
As dimly gathered shuh n of night,
1 heir truant insti-e apprnred in right;
Not with triumphal niitteh tin-) einne -Each
head was bowed with giief and shame;
From every eye streamed tears of wye,
And not a hcu essayed to crow.
"Why, whai'i the matter?" aked the four
Who aat within the ben house door.
"Matter?" quoth they, in di'Uiat note,
"Our sifter Peafowl's split her throat!
And we are sick with grief and paiu
We want our quiet homes aguin."
"Tnke (hem and welcome' said the tagej
"I far we all have rushed the age,"
Ko silently, with lordly err I.
Ench rooster stepped from off his nent,
Then looked upon his work abashed,
For not an egg remained ansmashed.

that a road over this line would firm
a greater feeder lo tho main lino than
that secured from any other branch

And time has proudly demonstrated
the truthfulness of the prediction.

their story at different times, and
without previous conference.
There arc, however, a few facts
which we know to be true. One is
that the road is one the best ballasted

THE DRUNKARD'S LIFE.
The Atlantic Monthly gives tho fol
lowing graphic sketch of the daily
cxpcriciico of every drunkard :
The daily lifo of ono of tho steady
drunkards is like this: Upon getting
up in the morning, alter a heavy,
restless, drunkard's sleep, be is miser
able beyond expression, and almost
helpless In very bad cases, he will
gee double, und his hand will tremble
so ho on 11 not lift to his lip the glass
for which bo had u desire almost
amounting to mania. Two or three
stiirglasses of sprittious liquor will
restore him so far that bo can control
his 111 uncles, and gel along without
betraying bis condition. Alter being
up an hour, and drinking every ten
or ii flee 11 minutes, bo w ill il'inilly bo
uble to cut a pretty good break
'list, which, with tho aid of coffee, to
bacco, and a comparatively smull
quantity of liquor, bo will bo able to
digest. After breakfast, for some
hours he will generally bo nblu to
transact routine business, and associ
ate with bis fellows without exciting
their pity or contempt. A dinner
time draws near he feels llio necessi
ty of creating an nppetite, which he
ollen accomplishes by drinking some
of those infernal compounds which
aro advertised on tho eternal rocks
nnd mountain hides us bitter under
various names, offered to tho public,
and displayed behind bar in drink
ing saloons, somo with certificates at
tached, usually vilo compound or re
ftiso whisky, condemned w ines, cor
diuls, etc., mixed together and fla
voured to suit the tusto w ith 11 few
herbs, spices und sugar, and sold un
der tho names of tonics, restorer, ap
petizers, etc. Many persnn are in

It i in vain for advocate of tetn

These bitters do lash tho torpid
powers into n momentary, morbid,
fierce activity, which enable the vic
tim lo even cat n superabundant din

but the dinner remains, and il has i
not digesled. This culls for an oern-1

hard -worked, heavy-faxed, poorly

gazing down into dark forests, and

that brings down daily, scores of tons
of coal for the main line to carry to

grass farm and stump patches ol
