Life hoc Its Spring, whoa rarest blooming dowers With sweetest rregraoce 011 the balmy air And richest pleaeuree erowa the eunlit hours, While all of earth seems olotbod in beauty fair. Life has Its Summer, when the golden eun bbinee from tbe eenilh of proud manhood's life ; a nen are tbe trophies OI tbe battle won, Amid the warring of this earthly strife. Life has Its Autumn, when the fading leaf, Foretells the desoletlon coon to come, And o'er the life there broods a alleot grief While homoleea beans are loaging fur a home. Life heslts Wioter, when beneath the Mow, Lie burled all the hopes nod all tbe Joys of life ; And la tbe West tbs failing sun is low, Then ecu and ends the day or weary strife.

Ho invested tho patontoe with vice rcgnl powers lor an annual tributo of two beavor akuut, and 0110-fillh of the gold and wivor. Upon this grant William Pcnnfound cd a Commonwealth without auguries or oracles, without an armr. without a hierarchy, without titles and without oaths. Hero ho fostered a relic-ion which hoe no imago or sacrifice, no uunutin or cucuarisi, no oriran, cnoir. or pulpit. Amidst a wildernoss of savngoa, and in an age cf corruption tyranny, and war, he eaublishod lib. erty, peace, and justice Do intro duced now methods of administration He stripped the law of cruelty, and treaties ol doception. He diminished crimes by reducing punishment, and avoiuoa nostiliuos by bonost dealing. He promoted industry by honoring it, and provonted oppression by equality v. bu.iii.u. 11 uuu mcvcir WttO Ulll' vorsal ho strove to abolish it by ordi nance auu example, vv nen ignorance was prevalent, heorganirod eduoation. When the Sabbath was ignored, he onjoined its observance. VV hon bigotry was rampant no uphold the proroga- nvo 01 conscience. V ben liquor driiilj ng woa debauching the Indiana, he sought to restrain its traffic When primogeniture waa a cardinal ennon of tbe law, be excluded it from tho rules of descent.

He mado divine virtue tho corner stone of institutiona which we still en joy. How raro waa hia curcorl Born amidst all the associations of war, the son of a fighting admiral, he became at length a voltury of non-resistance. Raised amidst licontioua and luxurious fashions, ho adopted tho simple habits 01 an ouuaweu soci. Accustomed to tbe rites of the church, ho waa exnell ed for non-conformity from Oxford J. raveling abroad ho acquired tho chief continental tonguoa, and those unoDScquioua civilities which bo said become a Christian. Studying the Calvinistio thoology at Sauraur, he may nave learned there tbe represent ativo system of his colonial polity. Vis iting iroiana lie gallantly assmlod in quouuig a mutiny at tarnckfergus.

Ho prayed for tho roloaso of the Dishops held In tho lower lor re fusing to road tho declaration of indul gence He begged tho livee of somo of thoeo condemucd by the atrociona Jcffreye. He remonstrated againat tho ncspotio ordor to cloct the Kintr's candidate prcsidont of Magdalen Col lege. ilo advocated tbe election of Alger non Sidney to Parliamentary for bis leranty and patriotism ; he rccom- monded an earnest welcomo in Ameri ca to tho fleeing Huguenots of Franco ; bo appealed to the ruler of Poland to indulge those of different faith, and re called bis ancestor's boast that he was not a King of consciences ; ho Impress ed his religious views on the accom plished Princess Palatine Elitahelb, and on Potor, the great C'r.ar of Mus covy ; he visited the Trince of Orango to indnco him to favor toleration. He suggested a universal diet of nations to prevent war. Ho contributed to establish salutary laws in New Jersey.

Yot, he loft a memory which tho criticism of tho most popular historian of the age has failed to injure. He loft a monument more significant than statue or column, pyramid or mausoleum. It is bore this vast organization of woalth and pcoplo thia boritago of liberty and law, with its prestige of past renown, and ita doetiny ot con stantly unfolding grandeur. Penn'a philoeopby, opinions, and conduct were all consistent. What eublimity of purposo, what aimplicity of manner, what energy and wisdom, what kindness of heart did ho oxhibit!

They will honor the State, they will hallow tho son, they will attest his history, they will show oar recognition of a universal sense of propriety and duty.

Tin Pleasiri of Business. No human mind is contcnlcd without oc cupation. No human soul is satisfied without an aim or purposo In life. Tho greatest success in I ilo consists not In the mere accumulation of riches, but in being ablo to acquire wealth with a disposition to apply it in such a man nor that it shall be a comfort and blessing to others not in the mere giving of money, but In putting peo ple in a way to labor and help lliom sclvos. 'l'hcro is no pleasure in op pression. There Is no joy in grinding and exacting gold from the poor; but there is a great deal of genuine satis faction In being able to offer steady and honorablo employment to tho many willing hands that have nothing to do. Ono of tho groatcst enjoyments ot the prosperous business man con sists in being able to comfortably pro vido for tho many employes in his house and mnnuiaciory.

REPUB RURAL DRAW AGE AAD EASE. Br h. 0. UOVEY. DIS It has boon estimated that more than hall tho deaths oocurring in oitios are duo to prevontablo causes. Tho vital statistics of farming regions aro not so easily oDlainod, but statements of re sponsible physicians, having each s large oountry practice, in widely sepa rated portions of the United States, prove tbo importance of judicious sani tary measures in rural as well as mu nicipal localities. One observes that "one-third of tbe autumnal sickness of this region might be pruvenlod by systematic drainage of farm lands. without detriment to their agricultural value' Says another, "about fifiv tier cent. 01 oursicKnoBB might Do obviated by suitablo sanitary precautions." All agroo that a largo proportion of the maladies coming under their notice are attributable to the insidious poison emanating from decomposing animal and vegetable matter. Tho purest country air is less pure than is commonly supposed ; a fact demonstrated to visitors of Mammoth Cave, who, on emorging aflor breath ing for sovornl hours the air of the cave, which is almost absolutely freo from noxious gases, find the outor air laden with oppressive odors, and de pressing in ita influence on the aystem. Miasmatic exhalations arise from every awamp, and waysido pool, from the decaying torcst leaves, and many other olijocta that are hardly thought of as prejudicial to good health. This particular form of the evil reachos its minimum in billy regions, whore tho tilted strata supply natural drainage; while its maximum is found is such ex tensive areas as exists in Indiana, Illi nois, and othor portions of the West, where vast deposits of alluvial and lacustral aoil cover nearly level sedi mentary beds, allowing but vory slug, gish removal of marshy accumulations. Tho cultivation of tho surface soil, and tho drainage made for agricultural purposes, have gradually redeemed large tracts of wetland in the regions montioncd ; yot much remains to be dono, and it is gratifying to soo that stops are being taken by somo of the states embracing prairies and broad rivor bottoms, to invostigato tho rela tion between the hydrographies! feat ures of the country and the prevalence of malaria and xymotio. Stato and local health commissions aro instituted with authority to collect vital and sanitary statistics, and to havo charge of public moasuros for re moving the causes of disease from all parts of the Stato ; omitting, however, two vory important links from the chain of a perfect organization ; namo ly, polico power to enforce good hoalth laws in rural districts, and means to defray oxponsos of straightoninecrook- od streams, to increase tho velocity of too current, digging canals to relievo wot lands from overflow, and doing other things that might coat a consid erable sum ot money, but would add largely to tbe reputation ot the Slate for salubrity, and thus bring a rich reward. Tho first annual report of tho Health Commission of ono ot our largest and most populous interior States has lately appeared, full of facts as lo the do ficientsowerage of cities, nnd its almost ntter neglect in smaller towns and villagos, and in rural localities; also showing the inevitable connection be tween the causes and prevalence of rorms 01 sicitness that might Do en tirely avoided by a comparatively small outlay. And what is true of Indiana would also bo true of other States similarly situated as to a lack of natural drainago. Look at the atill more level Stnto ot Illinois, with ita vast prairies and fur tile bottoms. Tbo seworago of all tho cities is emptied into tho adjacent streams, which havo usually a sluggish flow, and it is hardly asked whitor tho rooking mass ia distributed. Often this seems to bo the only avail able modo of getting rid of It, all ex periments looking toward othor mcth. ods meeting with but slight success. It is to be hoped that somo apparatus liko tbe "garbage dostructor and car bonizor" described in a late number of the Scientific American, will bo intro duced into all largo citios for tho con sumption of rcluso wilhout sending it down some stream to contaminate tho surrounding country. About ten years ago tbo courso of tho Chicago liivcr was artificially re versed, so that instead of running as ithad dono forages into Lake Michigan it emptied itself and its accumulation of street filth and offal into the Illinois River, coursing completely across tho citato, lho bonchcial result to tho city was vory great ; but lor lfiO miles down tho Illinois Kirer loud complaints were mado of a marked increase ol zymotic diseases, and a romarkulilo mortality among tho fish in that stream seemed to prove that lho water had boon poisoned. Tho fact is worth noting in passing, that tho fish appeared to grow used to the changed condition of affairs; but during tho past Wintor tho ice bound water not being properly oxygenated for a long timo, many fish diod, while others in immense numbers congrcgatod below tbo dam at Henry, whoro tho constant agitation of the falling water would favor a'lation. And at tho somo time there was an alarming prevalence of diphtheria at Pcora and other pi acos along tho river. Thia illustration ahows tbo import ance of Stnto regulation of general drainago, so that what is burn away us a uuisanco from one locality shall not bo cast as an offensive burden on anothor. But sunnoso all to havo lionn dnnn Uiat can bo offectod by public health organizations, mucn win remain to no accomplished by individual effort, in rosponao to appeals to an enlightened instinct of Bell preservation. Many larmera, othorwiso well in formed, do not soom to realize tho fact that gasos arising from slablos, pigpons, and oul-houBoa may poison tho pure country air as effectually as tho at moopuero in cities may be spoiled lor breathing by tho same effluvia spread ing Irom neglected alloys or cesspools. An tho thrifty wives ol furmors, who. forgetful of cleanliness, aaturato the dooryard with wash waterand kitchen sewerage thro'h all the Winter months, should be taught that when that ground sours and festers under the Summer eun, tho bent will ripon tho germa of discaso as surely as it will ripon 1110 grain in tbe harvest hold. Maladies mysteriously affecting fam ilies residing in what are regarded as healthy localities, are ofloo explaina ble on opening the collar door, whonce an Intolerable) odor of decaying veg etables proceeds ; or on lifting a board in the kitchen floor, beneath which ia a shallow pool of standing water ; or on observing that the well ia so situated aa to drain into itself some or tha substances that are thrown away as utterly unfit to bo retained in prox imity to human bolngs. Tho lultor point is ono vory fre quently overlooked. For oxamplo, a certain Western city, nncly located and attractive, gained tho reputation of boing anjoxcccdingly unhealthy spot, and was of courso much retarded in its prosperity by that fact. Finally it was nolicod mat underlying the city, at a depth of about twelve feet, is a stratum of imporvious bluo clay, above winch lies an extensivo quicksand, affording an abundant water snpply by means of numorous wells, and into that samo quicksund all tho vaults and cesspools of tbe placo were also dug, thus mixing their foul contents witb tho drinking wator that evory one used I Tho amount of sickness was materially diminished by the propor nLiuiiuuM ueiiig given lu una 0110 point.

In closing, 1 may monlion a curious illustration, givon in a paper by Prof. E.T. Cox, on tho"Influcnceof Geology on Local Discasos," showing what bus actually been dono by rural drainago to orauicato a dreaded malady that used to prevail extonsively in Kentucky and Indiana, knownas"milk sickness," DccnuBO, first attacking catllo, it was communicated to human beings through ino mils;, Duller, and uoei ot tho in footed animals. Many a bravo pioneer lost 111a mo Dy una malady, which almost always proved fatal; and re covery was usually lingering and im ported. At first it was supposed that lho cattle had eaten somo poisonous plant ; but every suspected gross and wood proved harmless on seientifio ex amination. Then it wus held that mineral poisons must lurk in tbe Springs and brooks; but hundreds of samples wore analyzed without do. tooting tbo presence of Ihe enemy. At last an investigation ot tho clay shales, soft rocks formed from ancient mud beds, and which are microscopic in an eminent degree, rovealod the secret. Those formations abound in every in fected locality, and it now seems clear that they exhale aomo sort of a miasam, wnen autiiraiod with wator, that origi nated or aggravated tho disease, just as oiucr kinds ot malaria bring on chills and fever. Proceeding on this discovery, thorough drainago of the wet lands adjacent to tho shale beds dried thorn sufficiently to terminate tho conditions favorable to the spread of milk sickness, so that it has almost en tirely disappeared from regions that onco wore cursed by that plague. Tbo opinion is now established that a largo proportion of diseases aro of germ origin ; and tho obvious modo of prevention Is the destruction of tho gorms or their timely removal. jScien. tijic American. THE REVISION. Dr. Philip ScharT, Chairman ot tho American Branch of tho Bible Revis ion Committee, addressed a large au dience at Pittsburgh recently on the subject of the revised Now Testament. After briefly roviowing the different translations mado from time to timo the speaker said that for fifty years there bad boon a growing domand for a now translation. There were two reasons for such a revision, first, the changes in languages, and socond, tho progress in biblical scholarship. Ev ory living language, he said, changes from timo lo timo. Certain words havo changed to direct opposite meanings, such as "prevent" used in the sense ot "precedo," "lot" for"hinder," "carriago" for "baggage," "by and by" for "forth with," Ac. Tho most important reason, howev er, is tho growth of knowledge. The forty-seven porsons who made the King James translation had none-of them been in Palestine, and know littleot biblical geography. They were thus liuUo to make errors, and did mako many. Sinco then Egypt has given np her treasures, Siani has been ex plored, Palostino has boon traversed. Babylon and Ninovch have rison from their graves to testify to the truth of the bible, and lend their manuscripts! and inscriptions to the explanation of its passages. Older manuscripts sinco discovered have boon dsod in tho prosont revision, and many actual errors reclined "Strain at a gnat" has boon changed to "strain out a gnat, and a great many such typographical errors have boon corrected. The two words in the original wore both translated "holl" in tbo King James version "hados,' meaning lho abodoof souls after doath and "gehenna." moaning the abode ot tho damned. In the revision this has been corrected. So also has the dis tinction between "devil" and "demon" been brought out. lho division into chapters, first mado by a Catholic cardinal in the thirteenth contjry.and that in to versos, first mado by a Paris publishing house. in the sixteenth century, have been done away with, and the text has boon divided according to sonse. Italicized passages when thoy were unnecessary nnd weakening to the truo sense, havo neon discarded. appreciate r arm liira. it is a common complaint that the farm and farm life are not appreciated by our pooplo. We long for lho more elegant pursuits, or tho ways and fashions of lho town, lint tho farmer has the most sane and natural occupation, and he ought to find life sweeter, if less highly seasoned, than any other. Ho alone, strictly speaking, has a home. now ran a man take root and thrive without land ? Ho writes his history upon his land. How many ties, how many resources he has ; his friendships with his cattle, his team, his dog, his trees, the satisfaction in his growing crops, in hia improved fields ; his inti macy with nature, with bird and boast, and with the quickening elemental forces ; bis cooperation with tho cloud, lho sun, the seasons, heat, wind, rain, frost. Nothing will take the various social dislompors which tho city and artificial life breed out of a man liko farming, like immediato and loving contact with the soil. It draws out tho poison. It humbles him, teaches bim patience and reverence, and re stores the proper tone to his system. Cling to tne farm, make much of it, put yourself into it, bestow your heart and your brain upon II, ao that it ahall savor of yon, and radiato your virtues after your day's work is done.

A very striking illustration of tho possibility of mimicry without drollery was anordod once by the famous tou lon, who may be described as at once the fool and physician at tbo court of one ot tho Louises. Ho actually mim ickod tho doccascd Minister Villole with such accuracy as to afford tbo menus of painting what has been do- elared to be a wonderfully faithful portrait. It appeared that after tbe death of the minister his friends were grieved to find that there was no sat isfactory portrait of bim in existence. Coulon was present when expression was given to tboir regret at tho cir cumstance, and agreed with them that no likeness ot tho deceased statesman represented, aa be said, "tho profound subtlety of his character and his evan esccnt expression." As he spoke he assumed tbo loaturcs, expressions, at titude, and tonoot voico ot the dopart ed man witb the most startling accu racy, and was at once requested to sit tor a portrait. As to tbo features something, wo suppose, must he ac credited to the imagination of the be holders. 1 he artist probably was sat isfied to catch the expression from the mimic s face and to rely on his memo ry or interior portraits tor tbo dclinoa lion of features, unless the two men bore a resemblance to each other to a degreo which would have robbed the performance of much of its merit. One of the most remarkable facts about the most skillful of mimics is that they are able to overcome the apparently insuperable difficulty pro sontod by the endless and radical fea ture, and will give to a face an aspect and expression which have been char acteristic of somo visago totally differ ent in overy respect. There can be no doubt also that this is the real se cret of much of the power of amusing possossed by tho mimic. Tbo vaga ries of expression, voice, tone, attitude, and nttorance present a constant series ot striking incongruities. That which in one person requires a vory koon observation to catch, and is not par ticularly striking when it is caught, is no sootier donned by somo totally dis similar person than it becomes ludi crously incongruous, and is found to be irresistibly amusing. There waa nothing, ao tar as we are aware, espe cially odd about Chantry, the sculptor, yot Sir Edwin I.andsocr once put a dinner party in a roar of laughter by cleverly personating him. The sculpt or put Landseer in his chair at tbe head ol lho table, and went himself and stood before tbe fire, "tome young man," said Landseer, imitating to a nicety the tone and manner cf tho individual whoso chair be occu pied, "you think yourself ornamental now make yourself useful and ring the Dell, liandscer was one of tbe most clever mimics that ever lived. His simulations wore described as pertect in overy particular, displaying the ni cest discrimination in points of charao tor, and the most astonishing accuracy. lho oewildermont ot tbo butler who, on the occasion just referred to, came into the room and saw his maslor at the fire-place, while he heard his mas tor's voice at the head of the table or dering more wine, was vory amusing, A Veritable Palace Car. The St. Paul Pioneer-Press, in a description of a Pullman palace car sleeper, recently placed on the Eastern division of tho St. Paul and Omaha road, says: "There are twolve soctions in tbe body ot the car twenty-eight double and two sin gle berths. In tho drawing room there are two double and two single berths, and tho smoking room baa a doublo berth. 1 be ladies drawing room is in ono end of tbe car, and tho gentleman's in the othor end. In the gentloman's drawing room is a double washaland. Tho car is supplied with air and auto matic brakos, with paper wheels forty two inches in diameter. The machin ery is so porfoct and so complole in all its parts that the occupants do not ex perience the slightest jolting as the cars move along the rails. All tho sido, or panel work is solid mahogany, ingeniously and olaboratcly carved, whilo tho carpets are of the heaviest and softest patterns of velvet. A striking feature is the motallio work, tho cuspidors, knobs, etc., which are f'ildcd instead of being silvered. It is ightcd with five large patent lamps with doublo burners, which render all parts ot the car so light that the finest print can be read as plainly as by day light. This is the first of five cars of tho samo description, all of which will cost f H(,000. A lady being asked wby plain girls often got married soonor than hand some onos, replied that it was "owing mainly to the tact of the girls and tho vanity and want of tact on the part of tbo men. "How do you mako that out?" asked a gentleman. "In this way, answorcd tho lady; "the plain girls flatter the men and so please thoir vanity; while tbe handsome ones wait to be flattered by the mon, who havo not tho tart to do it." A young man with an nmbrella ovortook an unprotected lady acquaint ance in a rain storm, and extending bis umbrella over her, roquostod tbe pleasure of acting as ber rainbow. "Oh I" exclaimed the young lady, taking his arm, "yon wish me to be your rain dear." Two souls with but a aingld umbrella, two forma that stepped as one. A lady who bad quarreled with her bald-headed lovor said, in dismissing bim. w bat is doiighttul abont you my friend, is that 1 have not the troublo of sending you back my locks of hair." 'If J onos undertakes to pull my cars, said a loud-mouthed follow on a struct corner, "he'll just have bis hands full." Tho crowd looked at the fellow 's ears and smiled. If Professor Swift ever discovers a baby comet he is advised to let the skyrocket. A young fellow pressing his own suit frequently wrinkles the girl's. EDUCATIONAL. BY M. L. McQUOWN. The School Board of Decatur town ship have arranged to build a school house at 1 arsonville this Summer.

The School Hoard of Penn townabin. this county were arrested Thursday. on oath of Peter Snyder, a tax-payer, charged with neglect of duty in tailing to publish the annual report for the yoar 1879-80. The hearing came off belore SqulreJ. W. Kahlor, of Hughes- ville, during tbe afternoon, the re sult of which was, that the matter was Bottled by the Board paying the costs, and promising to attend to their duties hereafter, according to the letter of tbe law. Mr. Snyder gave his reasons for taking this action, by stating "that he wanted to know how the money of tho school diBtriot had been expended." K iluamsport Chronicle. The above contains a hint to School Boards, upon which comment is unnecessary. Young ludios and gentlemen who eontemplate teaohing in the county this yoar, or next, should send us their address with stamp, and we will send them a discriptive circular of the "Teacher's Hand-Book," a little work ntonded to introduce a uniform system of instruction in our schools by pre senting a plan lor the organization and management of all the schools, in ad dition to tho plan prepared for the graduating of pupils in our Common Schools. This book contains an out- ine of the mistakes most prevalent in the management of our schools, aa gathered from observation, and the means of correcting them, and of mak ing the work of young teachers more effective, by the many hints and sug gestions calculated to guide them in their work. The book has required in in its preparation more than a month's labor, and cannot fail to be of great value to our school intorosls. State Superintendent Higbeo, being present at a Sunday School Convention up in the Cumberland valley, where the relation of Sunday Schools and publio schools was under discussion, made a ringing speech declaring there was no antaguiiiein whatovcr. A local paper reports that he said : "Manytoachors our publio schools were until to teach children. They were lackfteg in character. The Directors should see to it that such persons are not em ployed. The teacher should be good, honest, upright, and should possess brains enough to teach what he knows. As betwoen character and brains, we would prefer character. The remarks of Superintendent Uigbce were listened to with attention, and when he closed be was greeted with a heavy round of pplauee. '1 be audience felt that be had tho courage and firmness to meet and battle with every difficulty in the way, and that the youth of our State would be well cared for by him."
