Braadreth's Theory of Disease.
Never extract blood. Blood is the life. By abstract
ing it in painful diseases you ma, occasion the - patient
ease, but remember, this ease is only ; the ,feduction or
lessening, the,,power to feel. And by thus taking .away
nature's tools; you may preventher from fully repairing
the ravages of inflammation, a convert what might only
have been the sickness of_a few days or weeks into a
chronic affection of menthe and years.

However, [ was destined soon to have
my eyes open. One afternoon I saw:.a
flock of black ducks fly over the house,
and I was sure they landed on the lake,
so I seized my double barreled gun and
ammunition, and started off. When I
reached the landing, I saw the ducks
away off by the opposite shore. I at
once cut some green . boughs with my.
knife; and having rigged up the'hows
of.a small flat bott'om'ed scow we kept

I had got near enough for a tarot, and
had drawn in the scull, and was in the

started up. As quickly as possible I
drew one hammer and let drive. I hit
two of
.them ' but they didn't fall into
the water. They fluttered along until
they fell among the tall grass up in the
cove: The Water. Was low, and the place
aaw dry !where they were. I pulled .as

the ducks had fallen, and very soon,had
my eyes on it.. As I ran up to take it
I saw tbe head of a black snake pop out
and catch it by the wing. I saw only
the head and neck of the reptil, and had
no idea how large a one it was ; or, if
I had, probably I should have done just
as I did—or I had no ider. of .fearing

I next felt the snake's body working

changed to my thigh, and the coil around
my stomach cenunenced to tighten.—
About:this time •I began to think there
'might-be some serious work, and the
`quickerl took the snake off the better.

I could press the fellow's head down

I could not .do it. I could get it just

strength was applied to a disadvantage,
and I could do no more.

too much truth in the following remarks
of Addison : have found that the men
who are really the most fond of the la.
dies—:Who cherish for than: the highest
respect—are seldom the most popular
with the itiek. Men of great assurance
—whose tongues are lightly ha - rg—who
make words supply the place of ideas
and place compliment in the room of
sentiinent—are their favorites. A due'
respect for women leads to respectful
action towards therri ; and respect is
mistaken by them for neglect, or want of
Frositaxy.—iVever forsake a friend.
When enemies gather around—when
sickness falls on the hertit—When the,
world is dark and cheerless—is the time
to , try true friendship.. They who turn
from the cry of distress betray their hy
pocrily,- and prove :that interest, only
moves them. If you have a friend who
levee you and studies your happiness—
be sure to sustain '
,him in adversity.
Let him feel that'hia former kindness is
sppreCiated and his !cinemas not thrown
