A short conference waa held, It d
Jim, a brawny ruffian, with a blood
oulored mane of bair aud beard, put
ting some close questions to us both;
md at length, with not the best
grace in the world, our request was
grunted, and we woro told to draw
up and bolp ourselves from tbe open
provision pack upon tbe ground.
Hungry from our long walk, we
neodud no second invitation, aud

Tbo night dragged slowly on. One
by one tho road agents rolled them
selves in thoir blankets, and lay
down to rest aud lust, having ap
pointed a guard for his prisoner,
Hod Jim turned toward where bia
boree waa tothored, there to sleep
with tho bridle about hia arm until
danger for daylight awoke him.
Tfaeo, last of all, I too throw my
self upon tho grouud, but not to

leave him in tbo bands of these
demons would be worse than mur

therefore, I waited and planned.
Una against a dozen tho odds were

An hoar passed. But tbo skele

about me I knew that all except the

baa s-crtaiuel that atmospheric
disturbances duriog atoruiaado not
geoeially exteui mure thaaa mile

New England. From observation
maJa at the sea .level, as at I'ortlauJ,

how to take caro of themselvo
says :
"Sit up to the table when you road (
easy chairs abolish memory. Do
not read the same book too long at
one sitting. It you are roally weary
of one subject change it for another.
"Head steadily for three hours a day
for five days iu the week. The use
of wot towels and strong cofToo be
ware. "Test the aoouraoy of your work
as soon as you havo fiuished it. Put
your facta in order as soon as you
have learued them.
"Never read after midnight. Do
not go to bed straight from your
books. Never let your reading in
terfere with exercises or digestion.
Keep a clear bead, a good appetite,
and a cheerful heart. "

A good story comes from Wood
stock, Me. A grocer there owns a
cow with horns of inferior leiigCj.
Last week somo mischievous boys
obtained from tho tfitccry a pair'of
cast-oil" horns, which, with a bit of
cuuiout, thoy uiccty fitted over the
horns of tho cow and left her to go
homo at milking titno, which sho did.
Nor owner failed tu reoogniz-i her,
and actually used forco to exp.d her
from the promises. Thu villain was
searched in vain for tho misiin ani

SoMiTitiNU That's Foolish To
think tho more a man cats tho fattor
and stronger he becomes.
To conclude that if cxerciso is
good, tho more violent it ia, tho
more good is doue.
To imagine that every hour taken
from sleep is an bour gained-
To act on tho presumption that
the smallest room in the house is
large enough to sleep in.
To ea t without an apatite, or to
continue to eat after it baa been
satistiud, merely to gratify tho taste.
To eat a hearty supper for the
pleasure experienced daring the brief
