Long Credits.
A licit man was asked to contribute i
to a certain benevolent work, and the ;
solicitor quoted the text, 'He that giv
• cth to tho poor lendeth to the Lord,j
and that which he hath given will he'
pay him again.'
The merchant replied, with a smile, !
■Your security is no doubt good, and
your interest liberal, but 1 do not like
j to lend on such long credits,' and he j
! coolly bowed the collector out.
A fas, the day of settlement was not!
so far off to this 'poor rich man.' In
two short weeks he was called to his
i lust account. And so the day of our
j death seems far off to ail of us. We
are reckoning on long credits still,

Handkerchief Flirtations.
Some genius has recently reduced to
a system the popular habit of getting
up flirtations by means of handker
chiefs. The language of flowers is out
of dato. It is too elaborate and round
about a mode of conveying the tender
emotions. Commend us to the baud
kerchief. The use of it is so handy so
natural, and so easily acquired, that
any one who has tried it will at once
perceive its advantages over tho old
complicated system. Tho handker
chief, too, is suggestive in connection
with Think ofthc troubles
that poor Dcsdemona got into by not
talcing proper care of that ill starred
handkerchief which the Egyptian wo
man gave to old Mrs Othello. Truly,
as his Moorship remarked, 'there's
- magic in the web of it.' Let any one
look in of a Saturday afternoon, to the
matinees at some of our theatres, andj
he will say there is vast deal of mean-;
ing in a handkerchief. But hitherto
it has been an unwritten language,;
and those who use it have known but
little of its fundamental principles.
Hence the many mistakes and miscon
ceptions which too often follow, just as}
with too persons conversing in a lan- j
guago with which both are unfamiliar.
The following key may serve as a use
ful guide to the young of both sexes
who are ambitious to acquire this ele

Sir Roderick Murchison has heard
from Mr. Young, who commands the
Livingstone search expedition. On the
20th July, the party had been convey
ed to the Kongohi, mouth of the rivei
Zambesi, in her majesty's ship Petrel
Commander Gordon, and were üboul
to cross the bar in their steel boat or
the following day. They had beeu
abundantly supplied with all neccssa
I ries by the naval authorities at the
cape. The expedition had been strength
encd by the addition of two Ivrooraen
and an English stoker from the Petrel.
Mr. Young brought from the capo two
negro youths who bad been formerly
liberated from slavery b}- Livingstone,
and who. it was believed, would be of
good use as interpreters.
After describing the great changes
which have taken place in relation to
land and water at the mouths of the
Zambesi, the entrance of the east Lug
bo being completely changed, and
Pearl Island disappeared, the letter
thus concludes: '1 have not altered
my views respecting the probable time
of our return to the mouth of the Zum
besi. and have written to the senior
officer at the cape for a ship to meet
us there on the Ist of December. In
conclusion, 1 am happy to state that as
far as lean judge, wc are supplied with
everything we can need, are all in the

Frightful Death of Three Chil
A widow, Mrs Blankenship, living
near Bowling Green, Kyi, went to a
run to wash, taking with her her en
tire family, two little sons and a baby
daughter, followed by their dog. The
dog ran off a short distance into the
woods, and began barking furiously.
It was thought he had treed some
game, and with the mother's consent,
the littlo fellows went to secure it
The gamo proved to be a large rattle
snake. They wore too small to know
the naturo of the creature, and delight
ed by its glittering coils, the eldest
ran to catch the prize, saying, 'l'll get
him, brother.' The venomous reptile
darted, and struck its venomous fang.-
a "am and again into the flesh of the
Mowing, eager child, and wound it*
terrible folds about him. The youngei
brother ran to his rescue, and was
also repeatedly bitten. Their screams
brought the mother.
When she arrived the eldest boy
was dead, and the younger one lived
but long enough to tell what happened.
The snake had crawled off, and alone
in the woods, with the blackened and
swollen corpses of her two darlings,

tho mother for a time, forgot her in
fant down by the run. Returning to
her she found the corpse of her baby
girl in tho wash tub. She had todd.ed
to it and fallen in head foremost. Who
found her, or how she found assistance
; to bring to her desolate home all that
was left of her children is not told, but
the Bowling Green Democrat, which
gives the account, says the poor moth
jer is not quite bereft of reason, and
that the event has created a profound
sympathy in the whole community.
A Snake in a Boy's Stomach. —A boy
aged eight years, son of Benjamin
Whisler, residing in Mifilin township,
a short distance from Newville, Cum
berland county, has been seriously af
flicted for some time past on account
of having a living snake in his stom
ach. The presence of the young rep
tile was discovered about two years
ago, and by a rapid growth it has at
tained a size fhat renders it very pain
ful to the boy. Thirteen physicians
assembled at the family residence last
week and hold a consultation, when it
was decided that tho only manner in
which tho reptile could be removed
was by cutting open the stomach ot
the sufferer. The boy has not taken
any food except sweetmeats and new
milk for more than a year past, and
has a horror of everything else in tho
!shape oi nourishment. The case is a
very singular one, and may be consid
ered by many in the light of a snako
stor}*, but we assure our readers that
the facts above stated are strictly true.

An Aycnt of the Lord. —Deacon Simes
was an austere man who followed oy
stering and was of hardshell persua
sion. Tho deacon 'alus made itapint'
; to tell his customers that tho money
which he received for 'isters' did not,
belong to him. 'The good father made
the 'isters,'' said the deacon, ' and tho
money is his'n; I'm only a stooart.'
jOne Sunday morning the old fellow
was tearing round from house to bouso
with a suspicious bit of currency in
his hand, and more than a suspicion of
rage in his face. Some ore had given
him a bad fifty cents, and lie ' was'nt
goin' to meetin' till that ar' was fixed
up' 'Why deacon,' said one of his
; customers, whom he had tackled about
it, 'what's the odds? what need you
care? tien't yours, you know; you are
only a steward; it isn't your loss.' Tho
deacon shifted his shoulder, walked to
the door, unshipped his quid, and said,
'Yaas, that's so; but if you think that
I'm goin' to stand by and see the Lord
cheated out of fifty cents, you are mis
taken. 1 don't foster no such feclin'.'
ESS- A dish-washing machine has
been invented by a Westerner, which
is thus described: Tho machine pro
per comprises a box sixteen inches long,
ten inches wide, and twelve feet (for
water) two sets of brushes, a lever and
a crank. The dishes are placed on a
slide worked by the lever and are low
ered between the brushes, which are
moved backward and forward as brisk
ly as may be required. Bj- a peculiar
construction of the wooden backs of
these brushes a current of water is
continually thrown against the dishes,
sufficient to clean them of any ortfj
iary substance, and the brushes are
sure to remove any other article that
nay have adhered to them.
