Take a little Rum,
The less you take the better,
Mix it with the lakes
Of Wenner and Wetter.
Dip a spoonful out —
Mind you don't get tcrosc?Y —
Pour it in the lake'
. Winnipiseoga.
Stir the mixture well,
it prove inferior,
Then put half a drop
Into lake Superior.
Every other day-
Take a drop, in water ;
You'll be better soon—
Or at least you ougbt'er.
Take some Calomel,
The more you take the better,
Mix it with a drop
Or two of cistern water.
Feed some to your dog,
It will make him vomit,
And, may be, see stars,
And perhaps a comet.
Once in each half hour,
Take a rousing potion ;
Say a tumbler full,
If that suits your notion.
Should you chance to die,
As you're almost sure to,
You may safely swear
That it did uot cure you.
Take a linen sheet,
The bigger 'tis the better,
Wrap yourself up well,
And plunge into the water.
Any water'Jl do—
Oroton, sea or cistern,
Each should make his choice
Of what best suits his turn.
When you're fairly soaked,
If you don't feel better,
Take a copious shower bath
And get a little wetter.
Touch no wine nor gin,
But gallons of cold water;
You'il be better soon—
If you ain't you ougbt'er.
Take some No. 6,
The more you take the better,
A lump or two of sugar,
An ounce of cayenne pepper.
Make a tea of herbs,
Add lobelia to it,
With such other things
As you think will do it.
Steam yourself right well,
But take no time to think;
Pour the hot stuff'down
As fast as you can drink.
If this you will but do,
You surely will get hotter;
Or perhaps you'll die,
But of that—no matter.
Get a pile of rocks,
Or bricks, if nothing better,
Heat them hissing hot,
And yourself with pepper.
Put them in a basin,
I'ndernealh a chair,
Wrap a blanket round you,
To exclude the air.
Pour some water 011 them,
And Composition down
Your throat, to start the canker,
And do disease up brown.
Of lobelia take a potion,
Wind up with No. 6,
A crisis follows motion.
And you're shortly in a fix.
Take of Brandreth's pills,
A twenty-five cent box,
And ofTownsend's Sarsaparilla
Enough to kill an ox.
Before you go to bed,
Eat a quart of Salmagundi,
And on the top of this
Take a dose of alicomfundy.
Every night and morning,
Drink a pint of brandy,
Sweeten, if you please.
With a stick of Cough Cure Candy.
Then add to the above
A pail of Quacknip tea,
Then if you are not dead,
You surely ought to be.
Take the open air,
The more you take the better,
Follow nature's laws
To the very letter.
Let the Doctors go
To the bay of Biscay,
Let alone the Gin,
The Brandy aud the Whiskey.
Freely exercise.
Keep your spirits cheerful,
Let no dread of sickness
Make you over fearful.
Eat the simplest food,
Drink the pure cold water,
Then you will be well.
Or at least you ougbt'er.
There is nothing, purer than honesty ;
nothing sweeter than charity ; nothing
warmer than love ; nothing brighter than
virtue ; and nothing more steadfast than
faith. These united in otic mind, form the
purest, the sweetest, the richest, the bright
est, and the most steadfast happiness.
Earthly tilings are essentially of a muta
ble character. Empires arise, and as time
speeds on they attain their meridian strength
and influence, then decay. Change is
written on the face of universal nature ; and
man himself from the cradle to the grave
is subject to the same law.

Tbe Mile's Inilurnec ni her Husband's
j A woman has her husband's fortune; in
• her power, because she may, or she may
not, as she pleases, conform to his circum
stances. This is Iter first duty, and it ought
|to he her pride. \o passion for luxury or
display ought for a moment to tempt her to
; deviate in the least decree from this line of
i conduct. Si e y/p] find her respectability
iin i:. An;, other course is wretchedness
itself, and inevitably leads lo ruin. Noth
j ing can fie more miserable than the struggle
to keep up appearance. If itcouid succeed
j it would cost more than it is worth ; as it
I never can, its failure involves the deepest
I mortification. Some of the sublimest ex
hibition-. of human virtue have been made
i by women, who have been precipitated
i suddenly from wealth and splendor to ab
| solute want.
\ Then a man's fortunes are in a manner
j in the hands of his wife, inasmuch as his
' own power of exertion depends on her—
his moral strength inconceivably increas
ed by her sympathy, her counsel his aid.
j She can aid him immensely by relieving
j him of every care which she is capable of
taking upon herself. His own employ
ments are usually such as to require his
whole time and his whole mind. A good
wife will never suffer her husband's atten
j tion to he distracted by details to w hieh her
!own time and talents are adequate. If
she he prompted by true affection and
good sense she will perceive when his
| spirit is borne down and overwhelmed,
i She, of all human beings, can best minister
jto its needs. For the sick soul her nursing
I is quite as sovereign, as it is for corporeal
j ills. If it he weary, in her assiduity it
! finds repose and refreshment. If it be ha
; rassed and worn to a morbid irritability,
her gentle tones steal over it with a sooth
ing more potent than lite most exquisite
music. If every enterprise be dead, and
hope itself almost extinguished, her pa
tience and fortitude have the power to re
i kindle them in the heart, and he again goes
j forth to renew the encounter with the toils
and troubles of life.
' My wife has made my fortune,' said
a gentleman of great possessions, 4 by her
thrift, prudence, and cheerfulness, when I
was just beginning."
4 And mine has lost my fortune,' an
swered his companion bitterly, 4 by useless
extravagance, and repining when I was
doing well.'
What a world does this open of the in
fluence which a wife possesses over the
! future prosperity of her family ! Let the
I wife know her influence, and try to use it
wisely and well.

i The St. Louis Reveille is publishing a
tale, purporting to give some adventures in
the city life of a young physician, from
which we take take the following extract:
V snow having fallen, the young folks
of the \ illagc got up a grand sleighing party
to a country tavern at some distance ; and
the interesting Widow Lambkin sat in the
same sleigh, under the same buflalo robe
with myself.
4 Oh, oh— don't!' she exclaimed, as we
came to the first bridge, catching me by the
arm, and turning Iter veiled face toward me,
wlule her little eyes twinkled through the
gauze, in the moonlight.
• Don't what V 1 asked ; 4 I'm not doing
4 \\ ell, but I thought you were going to
take toll,' replied Mrs. Lambkin.
4 Toll ?' 1 rejoined. 4 What's that ?'
4 Now, do tell !' exclaimed the widow,
her clear laugh ringing above the music of
the bells. 4 Dr. Mellows pretends he don't
know what toll is !'
4 Indeed 1 don't then,' I said, laughing
in turn.
• Don't know that the gentlemen, when
they go a sleighing, claim a kiss, as toll,
w lien they cross a bridge ! Well I never.'
But shall 1 tell all \ The struggles of
the widow to hold her veil were not sufii
eient to tear it, and somehow, when the
veil was removed her face was turned di
reetly towards my own, and the liorsc
i trotting on of himself, the toll was taken
I for the first time in the life of Dr. Mellow*.
Soon we came to a long bridge, hut the
u idow said it was 4 no use to resist,' and she
paid up as we reached it.
4 But you won't take toll for every span,
w ill you, doctor ?' she asked. To which
the only reply was a practical negative to
the question.

The latest way of popping the question
we have heard of is, to ask the lair lady,

her at the ministers.'
